PAGE FIVE IS H HI BE II STAR Experience of Nic Verga, the "Pocket Edition Ca ruso," and "Dorothy," His Charming Wife, Has Proven This Theory WEYAND TRAVELS AT 1401LES A GALLON Big Excelsior Does 34 3-8 Miles on Single Measured Quart of Fuel; Economy Test at Fair Grounds Hieht short years ago, Nic Verga, who is joint star with his charming wife "Dorothy" at the Columbia, was unknown to the musical world. Ac quainted with many singers in his hems city of Milan, Italy, and being constantly urged, he finally decided te take up the study of music. At the outset Verga determined that no work would be too strenuous as long as it made him a thorough artist. Under the able tuition of the great Maestro Sulli he studied for three years. This means three years of practice that ranged from six to eight hours a day, for Sulli only takes pupils whose success is prac tically assured through their phy sique, vocal endowments and mental attainments And three years with Suuul means unceasing work. From this tuition Verga came di rectly to Xew York city where he appeared under the direction of Fer rari, at the Academy of Music, in Grand Opera, singing the roles of Caruso. It was here the critics dubbed him the "Pocket Edition Ca ruso." A few seasons in opera and the lure of big salaries in vaudeville tempted him and he spent two sea sons on the Orpheum circuit with 1h Gus Edwards productions. He then joined his wife in the pierent offering, that is scoring such !t distinct hit, "In Concordia. "Dorothy," Mrs. Verga, was with 'The Belle of Mayfair," and did "Dolly" in "The Newlyweds," and oth of them were with Montogm ery and Stone in the big New York production of "The Red MilL" Thev met while "Dorothy" was playing at Dalys' in New York, and after a whirlwind courtship they married and have lived happily ever after. Anyway, life has been just one vaudeville date after another, and they own a comfortable home and a touring- car in Los Angeles. People think success comes to these stagefolk in leaps and bounds and without exertion. If their lives are analyzed, they will disclose a series of almost uninterrupted strug Eles, heartbreaking disappointments, a routine of rehearsals, daily prac tice, performances twice or more daily and long railroad jumps that would appal anyone but a true artist who lives only for art. That's where the "I will" plays such a strong part. To succeed means indomitable courage, physic ally and mentally, and that's why Nic Verga, the singer,- and Dorothy, the nightingale, have transformed themselves into Verga and Dorothv, artists. o Make.

By turning thirty-four and almost a half times around the state fair mile track before the quait of fuel had been drained from his tank, L. E. Weyand, one of the partners in the Pioneer Cycle Company's Ex agency not only beat everybody in sight but set a record surprisingly close to the world mark. One hundred and sixty-five miles on a gallon is a record estab lished by an Excelsior, and claims are 'advanced that this is the best ever done by a two wheeled two cylinder vehicle. Bill Doheney had taken the tandem off his Flying Merkel, and had set out to outlast every other machine. He alibis his failure by counter ac cusing a spark plug of being fouled. This is one case where it is impossi ble to make more mileage on a sin gle than on a twin. Indians, Harleys, Merkels and Ex celsiors are now in the economy business. Weyand, who has a twin Harley as well as several Ex boats has been trying that one out on the track. The results of later matches, including some road trials will be watched with great interest by the many motorcycle fans. o WARM SUMMER DAY (Continued from Page One) PETERS QUITS ENROLLMENT III PHOENIX POLICE SUMMER SCHOOL Popular Officer Leaves To- i day tor San Francisco After Making Excellent Record Here in His Line of Duty s CITY STAGING WESTERN GOLF MEETING (Special to The Republican) ka.nsas CITY, June 7 Scores of leading golf players of the west, rep resenting clubs from every part of tne territory lying between the Mis slssippi river and Salt Lake City, will gather here tomorrow for the pening of the annual championship tournament of the Trans-Mississippi Golf Association. Denver, Des Moines, St. Louis, Minneapolis and numerous other citie3 will, be represented. Omaha, which is after next year's tournament, has sent a large delega tion. The tournament will be opened with the first half of the qualifying round of thirty-six holes. Play will continue until the end of the week. HE'S MUSICAL TOO Mr. and Mrs. . E. Garner, of 810 North Fifth ave aue are rejoicing over the arrival of a It pound boy yesterday. Mr. Garner is connected with the Taverner Piano company, and the young man who hung up his hat at the Garner resi dence, yesterday gives every indication f being an able assistant in the mu sical line. Incidentally, his arrival brines Joy to another home, that of Dr. H. A. Hughes, father of Mrs. Gar ner, adding to the doctor's laurels as a grandfather. o ICE CREAM SOCIAL The Young Ladies' Sodality will conduct a booth at the ice cream social to be given by St. Mary's Altar society on Wednesday evening at the residence of J. T. Whit ney, Coronado road and the Indian school car line. Candy, soda water and lemonade will be on sale at the booth. The admission price of twenty five cents Includes ice cream and cake. o there were more than twenty-five hundred people to listen to it. By night 4.000 people had passed into the Dark. They found amusement in many different ways, principally in and about the big pool and it must have seemed strange to the many old time residents of the city who were down there to find the city sporting itself as a watering place. The management of the park has found it necessary to double the capacity of the bath house and work on the txtension will begin tomorrow morning. Five hundred bathing suits were ordered from Los Angeles ten days ago; they should have been here yesterday but will arrive on Wednesday. After this there will be no waiting in line and there will be ample accommodations for every one. Work on the excavation of a new pool will begin this week. This pool will be located east of the present pool and the two will be connected by a waterfall that will not only be picturesque, but will supply a world of fun for the bathers. The picture show has proved so popular that it has been necessary to increase the seating capacity again and by next Saturday night there will be seats in front of the big screen to accommodate 2500 people comfortably. The popularity of the pictures is surprising to the management, who had figured them to be merely incidental in the scheme of amusement. There is no extra charge for them and there are four complete changes of bill with four reels of feature film on each bill. The bill changes on Sunday, Tues day, Thursday and Saturday nights. saturtlay night is especially devoted to comedy and a two reel comedy special will be shown. The big merry-go-round which will be the joy of the youngsters' hearts has been ordered from the coast and should be installed and ready for business before the end of the month. Arrangements are now under way for a monster Fourth of July cele bration. There will be a great sport program including water polo, swim ming racing, diving contests, motor- cjcie ana toot racing, and in the evening a most elaborate fireworks ! John H. Peters, for several months connected with the Phoenix police de partment', and, who before coming to this - city was one of the valued members of the Kansas City police force and municipal detective bureau. has severed his connection with the local department and will leave this morning for San Francisco,- expect ing to become .attached to the force of plain clothes men that will be employed from now on to guard the exposition grounds. During the time that Peters has been employed as a Phoenix police officer, his services have been of ex ceptional value in running down some difficult cases. Probably the most notable of these is still very fresh in the minds of the general public for it was Peters, who, with the assistance of Policeman" Roy Morrell, managed to clear up the mystery of who was stealing automobiles almost nightly, succeeded in placing seveial young men and boys under arrest and brought from practically all of them confessions that they were the guilty parties. Since the arrest of these boas neither the police nor the sheiiffs office have had a report of an auto mobile stolen. The owners of auto mobiles, particularly of Studebakers and Overlands, have become imbued with a greater sense of security in leaving their cars standing at the theaters or other places of amuse ment, for they realize that not only has one gang been broken up, but that the arrest of the boys and young men, is bound to have a salutatory effect upon others who might be tempted to commandeer cars other than their own for joy riding purposes. The departure of Peters is regret ted by every member of the police force who have come to know him as a competent officer and a mighty good fellow too. Their best wishes go with him to his new post.' o PHOESIIX TYPOS MEET ELECT OFFICERS Reports of Committees Show Or ganization of Local Printers in Flourishing Condition The regular monthly meeting of Phoenix Typographical Union, No. 352, L T U., was held yesterday af ternoon at the Labor Temple.

ILITANTS INVADE CHURCH Tcr the Fiist Time Stop Services at Westminster Catholic Cathedral E TO FACE (Continued from Page One.) alleged evidence furnished by sec et service officers concerning the bank accounts and property said to e in possession of the commissary manager. It was said at the time that Burke had $78,000 on deposit in is own name in banks in Colon and ia his home city of Indianapolis, in addition to property amounting to . $50,000 in various parts of the United States and Canada. Though denying that he had ever been guilty of any misconduct in office. Burke is said to have failed to satisfactorily explain his possession of so much wealth, when given an opportunity to do so by Col. Goethals. Three merchants in the canal zone who are alleged to have given Burke commissions in connection with the FREAK CAR BUMPS BUGGY A motorcycle with side-car attached. find carrviner a full rartn rf rnnt ans, came to sudden grief with a tuggy at Fifth avenue and Wash ington Saturday evening. The bug gy was being driven east on Wash ington in the middle of the street and was so far to the left that the driver of the chugbike saw that he would have to go far cut to port to get around. So he held to a traight course, and all would have gone well had the buggy not swerved rigni aiso. xnere was a general spill, with the result that the buggy withdrew from the fray minus several spokes, one of which ruined an otherwise perfectly good tire.

ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH! LONDON, June 7. Suffragettes for the first time invaded the Catholic churches and created scenes by at tempting to harangue the congrega tions. At the evening service at the Westminster cathedral, a well-dressed woman ran up into the pulpit, waving her arms and shrieked: "In the presence of the Blessed Sac rament I protest against the forcible feeding of women." Vergers pulled her down the steps ana turned her over to the police. A band of militant suffragettes in terrupted a mid-day mass, at the church of The Oratory when a suf iragette started a prayer, a woman worshipper clapped her hand over thg mouin or tne suttragettes. The suf fragettes were forced into the streets. where a well-dressed woman hit a mil itant sister in the face which bled pro fusely. The growing hostility of the public toward the militants was shown hy the assault on the open air meet ings. o DORCHESTER CELEBRATES Arizona School of Music Ke ports Many Applications of Students in Piano and Violin During the Heated Term The Arizona School of Music reports a large enrollment for the summer school, in piano and violin, which op ened the past week. With the closing of the tenth regular school year, Satur day May "0, was the satisfaction of knowing it was the most successful in the school's history. Mrs. Shirley Christy, its founder and director, has from the beginning spared no financial effort to give to this community op portunities for a thorough, systematic musical education, and each year with the growth of the city, she has added departments of study, and facilities for instruction, until the past year several teachers and artists of renown were members of the superior faculty of the school, giving advantages not excelled in any city; and thus gradually mak ing of the Arizona School of Music what its aim has been since its found ingone of the foremost musical in stitutions of the country. The past year 479 pupils were en- j rolled in the various departments, with an average monthly attendance of 397. During the year there was given four recitals of the highest order, by mem bers of the faculty, and twenty-seven pupils' recitals of great merit. In these recitals, pupils always give selections from memory, and while these public programs are not given as an exhibi tion of the skill of the pupil, but rather to aid in gaining ease for public ap pearance, they nevertheless have im pressed those attending with the fact that Phoenix has some industrious gifted girls And boys who are able to show quality of work, and artistic re sults obtained by their teachers. At present the greatest need of this institution is a dormitory, to give a home to the many pupils who wouid spend the winters here from other states. As the school is wholly a per sonal affair, no outside financial aid having ever been received, it is mar velous what one woman has accomp lished for this city, and we have no doubt the great energy, and wonderful perseverence which has carried Mrs. Christy through the entire undertak ing will in some way bring her the good fortune of the desired dormitory in the near future. Mrs. Christy announces that, with a few additions, her faculty for the com- ng season will be practically the same as the past year. Claude Gotthelf, the greatest pianist and teacher Phoenix as ever claimed, remains at the head of the well-organized piano department ith seven most capable assistant piano teachers. William Conrad Mills continues in charge of the flourishing ocal department. Mr. Mills is not nly the possessor of a beautiful tenor oice but is also a patient, energetic teacher: and the results obtained with both his advanced and beginning pupils has caused much favorable comment. The success of Frank Lloyd Stuchal as a violin teacher is ably represented by two of his pupils. Miss Ceciie Mul len of Tempe and Edith Liebenow of Phoenix. CMiss Liebenow having nev er received instructions upon the violin from any other teacher.) There are a umber of young boys and girls in his epartment who will some day be much in demand as violinists. The study of the mandolin and gul tar under Mrs. R. T. Harrison and J. W. Roebuck is also gaining in popular ity. The public school music course, un er the direction of Mrs. Luther Stew. ard is attracting the attention of those wishing to become supervisors of mu- ic in graded and high schools. The expression department in charge of Mary Edna Styles has grown sub stantially: and the charm of Miss Styles as a reader, the successful pub- lis appearances of her pupils, together with the splendidly presented school play, "The Rose O' Plymouth Town' shows this department to be in super ior hands. The popularity of the study of the French language is attested by the number of ladies and children In the classes of Mary Mildred Smith, who returned only last year from a three year's residence in Paris. Miss Smith although an American, holds a diploma from the government of France to teach the French language in France. Because of the marriage of the pdp ular dancing teacher. Miss Doris King man. who May 29 became Mrs. Paul Mathers, a new teacher will be placed in this department. The Saturday morning classe in Folk dancing have been one of the many interesting feat ures of the school; the classes mim bering from 35 to 40 of the most at tractive children of the city, engaged in the most healthful, graceful and re fined exercises for young people, were a pleasant scene to look upon. o r ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH t BOSTON, Mass., June 7. Citizens of Dorchester today commenced celebration of the 284th anniversary of the landing of 140 passengers of the little craft Mary and John and the founding of the town. The vari ous churches held special services i commemoration of the event. Dor Chester, now included in the munici pality of Boston, is the third oldest settlement in New England. It claims to have been the first place in the United States to use the town meeting and the first to establish free school. xcelsior fttoforcyclos Are conomica Here's Why: 3C L. E. Weyand, riding a "Heap Big Paleface," won the Phoenix Motorcycle Club's gasoline mileage trials at the state fair grounds yesterday, getting the astounding total of 34 miles out of one quart of fuel. This mark approximates the world's motorcycle gas economy record of 165 miles on a gallon of gasoline, made on a twin Ex celsior just like the one that romped home in front yesterday. With every make of machine prominent in Phoenix motorcycle . circles competing, this victory is decisive and compelling. Our nearest competitor made 30 2-5 miles on a quart of gas.

It is estimated that the property of the Church in Wales, which will be taken over by the commissioners, is worth, including grants from the ec clesiastical commissioners and Queen Ann's bounty, over $1,300,000 annually. Outside this the church has an income of some $100,000 which will not b touched by ..he disendowment clauses of the act and besides provision will be made for the clergy, so that they will suffer no financial loss. The bish ops and clergy will continue to re ceive their present incomes so long as . they hold their offices, and they will also be left in the enjoyment of their palaces and parsonages. The present incumbments will moreover retain pos session of the blebes and can at any time within five years exchange their existing interests in the emoluments of office for an annuity, and thereupon retire.

What the church loses are the burial grounds and glebes and tithe rent charges, which go to the county and borough councils, and which produce the greater part of the amount men tioned above. The money will be de voted for health and educational pur poses. - While strongly opposed to distestab lishment, the church party attack more stubbornly the disendowment proposals which they claim will cripple the church In Wales.

In the opinion of many, this would mean the begin ning of actual hostilities and the signal for the advance of,the American army from Vera Cruz toward Mexico City. Others believe the government 'will bring in fluence to bear on the owners of the Antilla to keep her from delivering her cargo pending the outcome or mediation. The third theory is that the navy will not interfere with Huerta 's bloc k a d e against the importation of ammunition, but will insist on keeping the port open to ordinary commerce. Mediators are Warned NIAGARA FALLS, June 7. It is dif ficult to see how another rupture be tween the Huerta government and the United States can be avoided. If one occurs, it is the prevailing belief that mediation cannot continue. Tampico is the snag which threatens peace. The Washington, government, it is under stood, feels it must prevent at all haz ards the exercise of a blockade by a government that is recognized as pos sessing the right to perform such an act under the international law. All participants to the conference to day looked grave. One went so far as to say "It looks black." The Huerta delegates said take the stand that the United States must remain neutral be tween the federals and constitution alists and to interfere with the at tempt to stop the landing of ammuni tion would put the United States in the position of using the navy to advance the cause of Carranza. o WEATHER TODAY ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH"!
