WRITES A LETTER TO MAYOR CHRISTY This Letter Has Been For warded to Engineer Bark er Who is Now Compiling a Report on Conditions in Phoenix. As the situation now stands it Is impossible for the city of Phoenix to purchase from the government electric power for lighting purioses even for street lighting to say nothing for re tailing it to other consumers for light ing or any other .puriwse. It can se cure power for operating its pumping ltktnt, which is the only other pur pose now conceived for which tho city is likely soon to need power. That is llie substance of correspondence be tween Mayor Lloyd B. Cliristy and L C. Hill, suiervising engineer of the rec lamation service, which was brought about in the following manner. Some time ago the question of th-- city's renewing its contract with the Pacific Gas & Electric Co. for the lighting of the city, came before the council. Desiring to make no mistake in the matter the council employed En gineer Barker of Los Angeles, an ex IK?rt electrician, to come here and in vestigate all conditions and roport to the council whether, in his opinion, the city should make a new contract with the company; install a plant of its own; or buy power from the govern ment. He was also asked to make any other recommendation that in his opin ion would be valuable to the councli Mr. Barker came here and investigated the situation, returning to Los Ange "les to write his report. Before doing so he wrote Mayor Christy asking on what terms the city could get power for street lighting, as it had been understood that it could not secure power for retailing to oth ers. Mr. Hill was away at the time and when he returned rM. Christy was away, but on October 9, when they were both here. Mr. Christy addressed a letter to Mr. Hill, covering the sub ject. The next day Mr. Hill responded with the following letter, a copy of which has been forwarded to Engineer Barker: Phoenix, Ariz.. Oct. 10. 1911. Hon. Lloyd B. Christy, Mayor of Phoenix: Dear Sir: In reply to your communication of October 9, I beg to state that the rec lamation service is not at the present time In iposltion to furnish power to the city of Phoenix for lighting pur poses, on account of the agreement made with the Pacific Gas and Elec tric Co. when 'the United States pur cliasGd this company's exclusive pow er rights in the Arizona canal. The reclamation service however, is still prepared to supply the city with power to operate its pumping plants on tho same torms which it was prepared to offer for furnishing such power several years ago. L. C. HILL, Supervising Engineer. o STRIKERS ATTACK NATIONAL GUARD Several Shots Were Fired But it Believed No One Received Any Injuries SACRAMENTO. Oct. 12.

Hereafter no strikers or rail road officals will bo allowed to take up stations within 100 feet of the terminnl. The company says the shops are running smoothly.

That money was distributed liberally by Senator Isaac Stephenson, and that sums as high as ?1S00 were given out with no accounting, was the test! niony of George H. Gordon, one of Stephenson's managers. Gordon said In- was given $l.S0O, of the $107,793 expended by the senator, and he gave this to others with no accounting and kept none for himself. Asked how much he thought it required to rganizr each of the 2,200 prtcincts in Wisconsin, Gordon said 5100 each. This would be $2'0,fon, or more than twice the sum . t phenson sjK-nt. o TAFT TALKED ALL TE Ever Flowing Stream of Presidential Conversation Reached From One End of State of Oregon to the Other. ASHLAND. Ore., Oct. 12. His voice strons though a bit shakv. through constant use. President Taft addressed crowds all the way down the Wilamette valley and across the state of Oregon today. Hour after hour as the train traveled through a land tliat blossomed with flowers and fruit, folk who came to small towns where the train stopjed brought tri butes of all sorts to the chief ex ecutive. With the California line only a few miles away the nresi- dential special jassed tonight through Ashland. The interior of the president's car resembled a florist's shop, and the steward hnd accumu lated enough fruit to garnjsh the president's table for many days tp, come. A few miles out of Salem the first stop of the day was made at Mount Hood. For two hours the snow capped peak, miles away, seem- ngly only twenty feet alKve its neighbors, remained in view The president spoke on many subjects. He declared several times that the old battleship Oregon should be the first warship to pass through the Pannma canal. Mr. Taft spoke on pence, arbitra tion and half a dozen other topics, The apparent prosperity of the coun try through which he passed led the president to make a new plea for arbitration. "God has given us all this prosperity," he said, " and all these conditions of life to make us comfortable. He would not have done this unless he wanted us to use them for the benefit of munkiud. We would Imj lacking in appreciation and in our duty unless we take our place in advance of the column and say to poor, oppressed people, especially to those of the countries of Europe wno are overburdened with armaments, 'We will lead you on; we will take every step possible to abolish that awful curse of war."' o NEW YORK MAN JOLTS Says the Amendments Adopted Voters Tuesday Are "Impossible Cures for Imaginary Evils " by SAX FRAXCISCO. Oct. 12. Op posing viewpoints as to the federal leasing of coal lands in Alaska occu pied the attention todny of delegates to tho American institute of mining engineers. F. Foster Bain, editor of the Mining and Scientific Press was the first speaker and declared not only for lensing but suggested that the government begin operating the mine itself. Monopoly will be con trolled, lie said, when government be came a part of the monopoly. Eos siter W. Raymond of Xcw York, re plied to Bain's address, standing so lidly for private exploitation of na tional resources. "I believe in as little government as possible." he said, referring to the amendments to the constitution of California passed upon in Tuesdays special election. He styled them "Impossible cures for imaginary evils." Ravmond said the people have for gotten that the giving away of na tional resources was what had de veloped the west and made possible its building up Among the speakers today was Reiji Kanda of Tokio, a mining engineer, who expects to es cort several delegates back to Japan next week. o PRESIDENT NOMINATED SAX FRAXCISCO.

Los Angeles was selected as the next meeting place in 1912. EI Room Had Been all Fussed up for Reception of Jur ors But the Only Effect Was to Cause a Lot of Trouble. VENIREMEN WANT MORE FRESH AIR With a Prospect of Six Months' Captivity They Want Good Meals and Comfortable Sleeping! Quarters. LOS AXGELES. Calif., Oct. 12 Outdoor sleeping, which is a fairly common habit in southern California. today took the form of a nienaee in the McXamara trial. Eleven tales men, lucked up last night in newly varnished rooms in tho Hall of Rec ords, reported that sleep was im- IHissible for those addicted to the outdoor habit, and one of them, Zim ri T. Hiatt, required medical atten tion during the night. The men face a long confinement in the trial of James ,15. McXamara on a cnarge oi murder m connection with the destruction of the Los An geles Times plant, October 1, 1 1 10. Sheriff William llammel immediately took steps to alter the arrange ments made for the final jury and tonight the talesmen slept in a roomy vacant court room with many win dows. The room first designated for sleeping quarters had leen set aside as an exercise room, and the win dows of both aiwrtments are Lept open. Even this arrangement is not considered satisfactory nor is the present scheme for eating in restau rants. Further efforts are ltelng made to improve conditions. It is feared that six months a la carte eating will prove disasterous to some prosiect ive jurors, who are used to homo cooking. Sheriff Hammel Is looking for a house where the jurors may hnve all the comforts of home. Some such arrangements will be necessary for the present talesmen who, al though not yet even jwssed tem porarily, may have to be locked up over a week before being questioned. Today is a holiday in California in honor of the discovery of America, October 12. 1192. Xo court was held. Attorneys for both sides took advant age of the lull to preiwire for sharp legal skirmishes which are expected to come with the resumption of the examination of talesmen tomorrow. Judge Bordwell, whs Is trying the case, visited his chambers and dis posed of much routine matters so as to have a clear field when the case is called again. All preimrations of the defense centered on the intention to reach into the minds of the tales men and ascertain whether their real feelings favor organized labor. Bord well has already ruled favorably on certain questions along this line but the extent to which the interrogation may be carried and the methods by which it shall be done, remain to 1m determined. Z. T. Xelson. the tales man who was being examined when court adiourned yesterday, will be called again tomorrow. Questions thus far by the defense will be fol lowed by others to determine whether veniremen are without bias, or ma be challenged for cause. Indications are that the precious twenty perempt ory challenges will be carefully hoarded. GRAND JURY WILL REPORT LOS ANGELES, Calif., Oct. 12 After serving ten days less than a year, the grand jury which indicted the McXamara brothers and six oth ers for alleged complicity In the Times dynamiting case, will make its final report tomorrow and will be dis charged, according to an official an nouncement today. Officials here are unable to find record where any grand jury In Los Angeles county has served so long. The jury was Impanelled by Judge Bordwell Octo ber 22, 1910. Three days later it concentrated its efforts on the Times case to the exclusion of everything else. The first fruit of its labors were indictments against "James B. Bryce," "Milton A. Schmidt." and David Caplnn." March 14. The same jury found that the victims of the Times disaster met their death In a wreck and fire caused by a dyna mite explosion. April 15 it returned indictments against the two McXa mara's and Ortio McManigal, the latter of whom later signed a writ ten confession implicating the two brothers. One minor indictment not connected with the McXamara case will be returned tomorrow. SISTER LIVES ALONE CINCINNATI, Oct. 12.

Two hours after tho sale opened not a single seat was avail able for the owning game. Tickets for the two other contests to be played here sold as fast as hands could reach through tho ticket wimlow. DIsapKlnted applicants for seats at the opening game were sur rounded by "scalers" who offered to sell plenty of tickets at prices ranging from J." in the forenoon to $7 and $S as the afternoon wore on. This is an advance of about $3 over regular prices. All members of the Xew York team are reiorted to lo in good condition. Manager McGraw expects to put the full strength of his forces on the field against Philadelphia. It is still a question whether Marquard or Matthewson will pitch the opener.

SAX FBAXCISCO, Oct. 12. v' -man's sutfmge has triumphed n California Straggling returns late today wiped out the majority pre viously recorded again.M. tho amend ment, and since this turn in the tide, the margin favoring the amendment has increased steadily. The totals to night showed the following: For, 119.0SC; against. 117.40S: majority. 1.67S. These figures, from 2717 pre cincts, show a total majority for the state of 3,121. As the remainder to hear from are practically all in the counties which showed a majority for suffrage it is reasonable to suppose these will increase the majority a thousand votes or more. Xot in years have the returns in California proved so baffling of interpretation as those on which hinged the fate of the amendment. Unfamiliar with methods of analyzing tho returns, the women leaders of the movement gave up in despair when tho Bay counties rolled up a big majority ngninst them Tuesday, but now as fuller returns are coming in despair gives way to hope and hope to jubilation MEN WIN BIG FIGHT Government of China at Last Awakes to the Fact That a Revolution is Threatening Overthrow of Kingdom.
