From reports received here Monday and yesterday as well as several telegrams it ap pears that Big Griffen will have a try-out with, the White Sox. The lelegram received Monday inquired as to his whereabouts and. the sender seemed rather in a hurry sending a duplicate. Griffen is in Evanston, Illinois, at present' and his address was made known to the inquiring parties. It is the general opinion that the White Sox manager has his eye on t him and is going to give him a try-out. The news was glad ly received in baseball circles here whl many of his admirers are confi dent that he will make good. For me past several weeks Griffen has been with the Milwaukee club at Owensboro, Kentucky, leaving there with them and' going over into Illi nois. Xo definite word has been received regarding an offer from the White Sox but a letter is expected very soon. I IH HIGH HILLS E. G. Baker Returns De feated in Purpose bvi Snows in White Moun tains Made Good Time. Logs Road Erwin George Baker put-putted into town yesterday. He started to go to Albuquerque, which is in New Mexico, but he only got to within a few varongs of the charming chilly little village of Springerville. ' j "It was no use,' 'he said, in explain- ing his failure to make Albuquerque, "I am not Dr. Cook. I cannot deceive a geographical society. The. rigors of an Arctic elime were too much for me. And, besides, I had covered about all the road I really cared to see." Baker was p'athfinding for his com ing transcontinental motorcycle dash. He left Phoenix early Sunday morn ing. In eleven hours and thirty min- utes he made 236 mues to a camp on the other side of Fort Apache. In describing his trip he said: "By George, that was some trip. I never knew there was so much coun try up there. Although I was dressed for winter and had big gloves, a sweater and a raincoat, I was cold. The scenery is grand, much better than I imagined. The other time I went through I was going so fast I did not see much of the country. But his time I went slow and kept a lookout for things to see and tell about when I got back. "The measly little rise on Fish f'reek hill is nothing compared to that blasted pull out of Black River canyon. Why, there was a stretch of nine miles where it was so steep and so narrow and so rough that it is al most impossible to get through. Hon est, I didn't think a motorcycle could make it until I got through. "I drifted along right lively the first day and got into the high hills, where it was 'almighty cold. I came to a forest service camp and staj-edV. all night with the men. They told me not to try to get through because of the snow and the sloppy roads, so I slept there, and the next morning went up on the hilltops and looked around. There were miles and miles of coun try .without .a sign of life. Just big trees and rocks. The burned stumps looked like woolly bears, " ready : to jump out at you. I tramped on her tail all through that country to get back where there were folks. . "When I start through, there next month, I will go through without 'any trouble. I know where all the bad spots are and all I will need Is a good supply of the right, kind of gas and oiL I arranged along the route for the best fuel for my trip." ' "-' On telling the story on the streets yesterday. Baker was confronted with incredulous smiles. Just to imagine people sitting in a log cabin shiver ing around a ' sheet iron stove that was doing its level best to heat up the interior with its rosy glow! And here, two hundred short miles away, such summery weather! Baker will leave San Diego on May 3 or thereabouts to try to demolish the 20-day record from the Pacific to the Atlantic. 1 BaseballGoods PINUIY & BOBINSOft 17 South Center SHIVERS STANDING OF THE CLUBS National League Won.

Batteries: MESSAGE FOR ALL FANS OF PHOENIX This it a solemn pledge to the Fane of Phoenix. The Arizona Republican wilt en deavor to give the cleanest cut most accurate baseball reports ever read in an Arizona newspaper during the year to come. Basing its news on the reports of the As sociated Press, this paper will con tinue to fill its place in the lives of the followers of the great nation al game giving fair views and first news of everything of interest. There are now three "big" leagues in the east. The fact that 25,000 people saw the opening game between Baltimore and Brooklyn in the Federal league Monday, inci cates that a great advance is going to be made in the organized as well as in the outlaw branches of the game. National, .American, Federal, Coast, Western, American Associa tion. Those are the names of the leagues The Republican will cover. The league doings will be featured in the order named. The sport editor believes that the cosmopoli tan population of Phoenix warrants the use of full reports on the three most prominent leagues, the two majors and the Federal. He thinks Phoenix fans will agree with him in his way of lining up the or ganizations. The Republican wishes every fan a happy, hearty, healthy season of sport, and hopes that the compre hensive baseball reports will please all its many readers IMORE- OFFICES ARE FILIEO ! (Continued from Page One.) These salaries range from $5,000 per year for the city manager, down to $1,200 for the city treasurer and for the chy scaler of weights and measures. Under the terms of the proposed or- j dinance the street superintendent- will (have supervision over the plumbing in-, j spector and the electrical inspector, -.j. The salaries as fixed by the tentative ; j ordinance are as follows: City manag ; ;cr, $."i,000; auditor, $2,400; clerk, $2,00u; ! i assessor, $2,000; treasurer, $1,200; at--;torney, $2,000: engineer. $l.SO0; chief of police. $2,100; fire chief, $1,800; street superintendent, $2,400; magistrate, $1,800: health officer, $2,400; sealer of weights ar.d measures, $l,50o: building inspector, $2,100; water superintendent, $2,400. Although it was sought to secure im- adion upon the proposed ordi- nance upon the grounds that it was an emergency measure, the commission voted to defer action until the next meeting. Among the striking features of the proposed ordinance is a provision that none of the city funds shall bp de posited in any institution unless the.y shall draw a rate of interest not less than two per cent. With relation to moneys in sinking funds it is proposed that these may be deposited in any re putable banking institution in the s'jite but when so deposited must draw In- ! terest at a rate not less than foor per cent. Manager Farish reported that he had been able to give but little attention to the several matters referred to him at the previous meeting but stated that he had given the city electrician per- 1 miqKinn in lav th ltri, liclif rlttr. on Monroe street near the Water Us ers' building and had instructed the water superintendent to lay the. pipes necessary to furnish water for the trees in Eastlake park. Further, he had authorized the decoration of the city hall for the approaching Sun Fete, the expense involved not to exceed $30.

J. C. Adams and his cohorts got together and without much preliminary hullabaloo stuck some blue show cards around and about.. The idea conveyed by these posters was that there will be enter tainment for the lover of horseflesh at the state fair ' grounds Sunday afternoon.

He also announced lie had found that there was an amount aggregating $11,"po2.23 still outstanding as uncollected taxes, a portion of which he believed was collectable. He was instructed to take the matter of the collection up with City Attorney Chris ty and ascertain just what action should be taken. The Arizona Eastern, requesting permission to lay a spur track across Sixth and Seventh avenues, submitted a map of the district involved and this. together with the petition for the per mission was referred to the city at torney. The city attorney announced that he had ascertained that the common coun cil had the right to grant permission for wagons to stand upon the street and that such permission had been giv en for the standing of a popcorn wa gon on North First street, just off Washington street. A petition had been received at the last meeting asking that the wagon be made to vacate the street. T'pon motion of Commissioner Woods, the commission voted to allow the proprietor of the wagon to continue business on the street. A report was received from the su perintendent of streets that he has as sessed costs of the improvement of Mc Dowell road against the lots, portions of lots, pieces or parcels of land con tiguous to the improved district. Mayor Young asked that approval of the assessment he deferred until the j commission has had fin opportunity to investigate the equity of the individual assessments. Mayor Young reported that the man agement nf Guenther's Cafe on West Adams street, has offered to donate a portion of th front part f the cafe as a rest room for women. The proposed rest room is provided with easy chairs, a sofa and toilet facilities. "Commis sioner Cope asked if it was to be do nated and upon beng assured it was, submitted a motion to accept, which carried. The mayor then directed the atten tion of the commission to the crying need of some means for disposing of the city's garbage. He announced that within ten to fourteen days it will be necessary to find some new place where the city garbage may be dumped and buried. He said that an incinerator whs the onlv ultimate solution, even announcing that as the citv began to approach the 50.000 population mark it may become necessary to ask the elec tric railroad to provide garbage cars and haul the. pity garbage several miles north of the city. It was the sense of the commission that some steps should be taken immediately and the matter was referred to the commission and city manager to investigate with out delay. i Commissioner Foley asked that all bids for fire apnaratus and fire alarm extension he rejected ant the checks of bidders returned to them.

We maintain stoutly that there are none. Of course it was merely to entertain the readers of the paper, that this clever young woman so "raved" about the game, fhe knew she was going to say some of those things before she ever went out to Grant park.

This means that the city is certain to receive. $10,000 from the sale of the property and stands to secure even more if tho school board can find a buyer willing to pay more than $25,000 for the block.. It was pointed out that the property is not desirable for school purposes because of its rroximity to railroad tracks. After considerable discussion the com mission adopted a- resolution approving the proposition and directing the city attorney to proceed with the drawing of the proposed quit claim deed. The proprietor of the Woodford House complained of the unsanitary condition of a corral near his property and asked that the nuisance be abated. ,This matter was referred to the city manager.
