Center and Adams Shipment of Ilvdrants On its Way to Phoenix, Will Be Installed diving This City Ample Protection from Flames. One hundred new pattern, fire hy drants are on their way to Phoenix to bo installed by the city waK-r de partment in districts of the city whore better fire protection is need ed. It is exieeted that these hy drants will ho received in I'hoemx in about ten days and the work of their installation will be begun at on -jo by City "Water Superintendent V. A. Thompson. About thirty of the new hydrants are constructed for six inch connec tions, and these will be installed in the downtown or business district. One will bo placed at each diagonal corner from that now occupied by a fire plus, giving two connections at each business street intersection. This it is felt will - afford ampl? protection in case of fire and remove the necessity so often encountered of placing a fire engine at some point a block or more removed from the scene of a blaze, because the plug- nearest the fire may be in use by hos-e carrying streams direct and having only the pressure of mains behind it. Preparations were made some tmi" as for the installation of seventy fire plugs in the remote residential districts. The first residential dis trict plug t- be installed will b that at Twenty-First avenue and West Adams street. Other districts of WVst Capitol and Capitol additions will receive a full share of the allot ment. The work will be carried on with a full force of men engaged and hurried to completion within th---shortest time possible. Superintendent Thompson Is quite certain that with the placing of the pTugs in the residency- districts in accordar.ee with the plan already perfected by him. ;ract ically every district in the city will be well pro tected and that there will be few houses in the city so remote from a tire plug that a good stream of wa ter cannot be secured for its pro tection upon short notice. o GREYHOUND'S TANK . BREAKS INTO FLUE Spilling of Gasoline By Mechanician Results Seriously. Ignoring the usual precautions he had been instructed to take when filling the gasoline tank of the big "Greyhound'' twenty-passenger auto mobile operated by George Pilchard beUvevr Mesa, Tempe and Phoenix, the Mexican mechanician employed by Pilchard, last evening at S::;n o'clock, narrowly escaped being ser iously burned, wk-.-n the open tank ignited and threatened the destruc tion of the car. With the biax fiom the burning tank mounting high in the air, it was thought by people living in the vicinity that a serious blaze was in progress and an alarm was sounded from Box The fire department made a quick run to Fifth and Madison streets only to find that the blaze had been extinguished before its arrival. With the aid of mud and dampened bur laps the mechanician and those who came to his assistance put out the blaze, but not until enough damage had been done to make it necessary to take the car out of commission about two days while repairs are being made. The car had been run down to an olk-y below Madison street ami was being placed in shape for the next day's business. This included the filling of the gasoline tank. In some manner which is not quite was ignited, and the blaze followed, by some remark just out of reach of the burning fluid as it was scat tered by the force of the explosion. o H. I.

S3 BELIEVE THE VERDE IS A GREAT OIL FIELD The Yuma Company Preparing for Early and Active Operations After an absence of eighteen vears A. 10. Hredull returned to the city yesterday. Mr. Hredull arrived in 18!CJ, as a representative of the Illu strated Californian and was so im pressed with the town then that he settled down and for a time was con nected with The Republican. He was afterward engaged in the real estate business for a time but a couple of years later he returned to the north west v here he has been eiiKagvd in the promotion of interurban roads. Hp is now connected with the Yuma Verde Oil company formed for the operation in the Verde alley, was accompanied by V. W. Hall -ecently has been with the lamation service as one of the Kineers on the Yuma project. Hall resigned to devote himself to the oil business and is one of the leading- spirits in the Yuma Verde company. Project Engineer F. L. Sellend is a member of the company. Both lie and Mr. Kredull have no doubt of the discovery of oil of a high grade in commercial quantities the Verde fields which they have studied for sometime, watching the operation of the Tempe Verde com pany and another company composed He who mostly of Jerome and Prcscott citi zens. "They have proved all we want to Know," said Mr. Hall yesterday, "that the oil is there. In sinking for it however, they neglected properly to case their shafts so that there has been a mixture of oil and water and it will be necessary to sink new holes." The extent of the oil meas ured, Mr. Hall said, is shown by the fact that large quant ities of oil had been found in both wells sunk at opposite ends of the valley twenty-five miles apart. The formation of the Verde country is easy for sinking, much more so than in any of the California oil fields. The oil too, is of much better qual ity having aparaffin base while the California oil has an asphaltum base. Active operations are to beun at once on the Yuma-Verde properties. A rig lias been ordered from Colorado and Mr. Hall believed that it had already arrived at Cherry Creek. Since leaving Phoenix, Mr. Predull who now resides in San Francisco has had extensive experience in oil. He entered .the Caolings filed vdien it was new. He acquired control of considerable land there but on ac count of a change in the state laws he was required to relinquish it and he got out of tlie field before the character of it was generally under stood. He has found out with some re gret that wells on land once in his control have produced oil of the val ue of $300,000,000. Mr. Hall left last night for Yuma. Mr. Bredull will re main in the city for a coupe of weeks. ENRIQU ni xmt City Ticket Agent of Arizona East ern at Least Twenty-Three Years Old. Enrique lly Page, city ticket agent for the Arizona Eastern . railroad, celebrated his birthday yesterday. It was the twenty-third official obser vation of the recurrence of that went in Hy's life. At least that is what h-e said. There is a growing suspicion that some period in Hy's life, say nine or ten years, is a blank. During that period perhaps Hy did not celebrate the anniversary. Nineteen years ago, when the Ari zona Eastern occupied the old quar ters, Hy was -advanced to the posi tion of city ticket agent. He held that office for twenty-one years and then went to Guaymas where he re mained some two or three years. He has li-een at his post about three years. That would make him twenty-three years old (at least), if it is to be believed that immediately upon arriving upon this mundane sphere he began selling tickets. It must be hard for a truthful man like Mr. Page to remember his age. He is not the kind who would wilfully misrepresent anything, not even wlw-n it comes to a dissertation upon the luxuriousness and speed of the trains which ply daily between Phoenix, Winkolman, Kyrene. Mari copa and Christmas. He can prove to any person's satisfaction that Un ion City, Tenn., never heard of or mistrusted that there was another railroad in existence than the Arizona Eastern and its subsidiary branch, the Southern Pacific. He will tell without a tremor of the big bridge nearing completion, by which th Arizona Eastern makes direct con nection via Honolulu with New South Wales and Madagascar. He has learned to do this through twenty three long years of experience punching tickets. . Five years from now, when Hy celebrates another birthday, he will be twenty-four years old. Enough congratulations to extend over the cinco years period were received yes terday by Mr. Page. Speaking of the development at Verde,- Mr. Bredull said that if it; Wuold turn out that a great oil field exists ther' Phoenix for topgraphi- j cal reasons would become the bene- j ficiary of the discovery. A pipe line; would have to be constructed to this! point since it would be impossible to construct a line up the steep in clines to the north.
