FORKED TEMPE MAN
FATALLY INJURED AI RAY
Edward Wesson Hurt in Runaway
Accident Auto Party Leaves
for the Scene.
Word was received in Tempo
shortly after noon yesterday from
Ray, Ariz., that hid ward Wesson, a
tormer resident of Tempe, was not
expected to Jive but a lew hours a
the result of a runaway accident the
previous day. In answer to the wire
Councilman Frank Fogal, an inti
mate friend of the injured man; Bat
Wesson, a brother, and K. H. Spain,
left in the former's automobile for
the scene of the accident.
Details of the accident arc lacking,
but lt-.Mii what could be gathered Mr.
Wesson was freighting between Ray
and some nearby mining camp when
he received the injury. The teajn
which he was driving became sud
denly frightened while at the top of
u hill and bolted. Hut a. short dis
tance had been covered when it
ran off the road grade, it is rumored
that fhe horses were killed.
I 'pon receipt of the wire, it being
impossible to make train connections,
the auto party left immediately for
the scene of the accident to do what
they could, if anything, for the in
Mr. Wesson was a well-known resi-
ot' Tempe, until about two years
when he moved to Ray and
up the occupation of freighting,
during the greater part of that
he was employed by Mr. Fogal.
which consequently accounts for the
intimate friendship existing between
the two men.

DISCUSSION OF HIGHWAYS.
The route of the ocean-to-ocean
highway a approved by Col. Dell
M. Potter, national organizer and
vice-president of the Ooean-to-Oceau
Highway Association, has been unan
imously endorsed by the members of
the Tempe board of trade. Action
on this feature was taken last Sat
urday evening, when the organization
met in the office of President A.
Nielsen to consider that and other
matters. The resolutions, which were
presented to the board, were en
dorsed and forwarded to Col. Potter
in Los Angeles yesterday morning.
The matter of good roads came in
for discussion also, and before the
motion for adjournment was made
several plans were devised for se
curing the desired results. In time
these will be evidenced. At present
Tempe residents are being favored
with the use. of exceptionally good
reads as a. result of their being fully
dragged following the rainy spell last
week. The board naturally recom
mended a furtherance of this work
and will offer all the assistance
possible to keep it moving along.

PLAY IS POSTPONED.
The play which was to be pre
sented in the Goodwin opera house
next Friday evening, December 20th,
has been indefinitely postponed, most
likely until the. second Friday nigh!
in the neaw year. The Pythian sis
ters found it impossible to prepare
the various parts in the required
amount of time and consequently
they have set their date ahead when
they can draw a larger crowd and
likewise give a better show.
FINISHING' TOUCHES COMPLETE.
Work which has heen progressing
for the past three months on the
consolidation of the Overland and
Arizona. Telephone Company systems
In Tempe was brought to a close last
Saturday evening. The finishing
filches have been added and the
early part of the week a new number
book will be issued to the patrons
of the Mountain States Telephone
end Telegraph Company at this
place. Every business house and
residence within a mile of the- main
office is now cquippepd with a prl
ate line, a feature that has been
almost entirely lacking in Tempe' in
the past. Patrons outside of that
district are furnished with the party
line, there being not over three or
tc ur phones on any one line. The
foree of men which have been em
ployed in Tempe will be transferred
to Mesa this morning, where opera
tions will be resumed on the consoli
dation of the two systems at that
made, a trip to
tn look over the
work being done on
their ranch located
in that district.

REAL ESTATE SALES
Dealers Report Quite a Lively De
mand for Farm Holdings in 'the
Vicinity of Mesa.
Within the past week there has
Wen increased activity in the real
estate market. All the dealers have
been rushed with applications for
Mesa lands, especially lands suited
to the cultivation of citrus fruits. The
cold wave in California came early
this season and has been remark
ably severe. Every day brings men
trom that state who are looking for
locations here, believing that both
the soil and climate and freedom
lrom insect pests are destined to
make the Salt River Valley an ideal
section for the growth of all kinds
of citrus fruits-. As a result several
hig deals are now under way and
are expected to be consummated De
tore the first of the year. While
there is no dearth of suitable land,
the realty dealers are pushed to find
cultivated lands that the owners are
willing to part with. Several offers,
which carried prices above the aver
age, have been turned down.
Reports from Chandler are to the
effect that that section is tilso do
ing a lively business in the transfer
of realty holdings. The sales are in
creasing daily and are fully double
what they were during the summer
In Mesa the transfer of town lots
has also enjoyed a small boom; a
great deal of building is going on and
contracts for a number of creditable
residences are being left. At pres
ent it is a difficult matter to locate
I all the ' strangers who seek winter
homes within the town. Tents and
tent houses are becoming numerous
as makeshifts and the lodging houses
are generally kept well filled.
THEY ALWAYS HELP ELDERLY
Foley- Kidney Pills give just the
help elderly people need to tone and
strengthen their kidneys and bladder
and regulate their action. John Mc
Masters, Streator, 111., says: "I feel
better and stronger than I have for
many years, and Foley Kidney Pills
did it." Advertisement.
A QUIET DAY.
Sunday was a quiet day in Mesa.
People generally rested from the
strenuous activities of the week past,
attending church, or took quiet drives
over the surrounding country. The
merchants had the busy week of the
year,' during the six days closing
Saturday night. There appears to be
a disposition on the par of a large
portion of the population to do their
Christmas shopping early. This sen
sible move is no doubt largely due
to the frequent appeals in The Re
publican to shop early and thus give
some consideration to the clerks, who
are at best overworked during the
RED CROSS STAMPS.
Red Cross Christmas Seals are now
on sale in Mesa at the following
places: The J. M. Harnett drug store,
Everybody's drug store. Crescent drug
store. The Popular Store, The Tog- '
gery. Mesa Furniture store. Conger's j
Emporium, Holland's bakery, Allison
Davis hardware store, E. P. Grover's,
Lesueur & Co.'s.
These seals are sold for the plac
ing on Christmas packages and on
the back of envelopes containing
gifts and greetings to relatives and
friends during the Christmas season.
They sell for a penny each and the
money goes to the aid of tubercular
work. The buying of these seals is
a work of charity that no one should
verlook. Millions of dollars are
spent annually in an effort to check
the ravages of the great white plague
and to aid those who are its victims.
It is a work of true Christianity and
broad humanity, and should be. aided
by all who are in sympathy with
those who suffer and by all wl.o
truly love their fellow man.
