THE "ARIZONA REPUBLICAN, , 3I0NDAY MORNING, JULY 13, 1914
PAGE THREE Stray Topics From Little Old New York NEW YORK,' July 12. Hotel roof gardens have been opening so fast since the., first of the month that there are now more than a score of these places where diversion may be found in the evening by that portion of the community that has to spend the heated term here, and the vis itor from the west or south who ev ery year is more and more generally coming to the conclusion that New York is the best summer resort in the western hemisphere if not in the world. Travelers say there is nothing abroad quite like the New York hotel roof this summer. Paris has its open -air restaurants, though most Americans who visit them don't bo to play or to eat, but to be Plunked either at the prices or the notorious persons. A heavy falling off in the imports of precious stones into the United States during the government's fis cal year ending last Tuesday Is fore shadowed in estimates made by Wil liam B. Treadwell, examiner of all gi m importations entering this coun try. In the last fiscal year the en tries of gems had an appraised for eign value of $48,7SS,9i7, while this ear's importations, according to Mr. Treadwell, will probably fall be low S5,000.000, a loss of approxim ately tl4,0WO,H0O - in twelve months. Maiden I.ane. authorities estimate the drop at $'15,000,000. The drop is jittributed in part to "hard times," but more to ' the fact that the im porters overstocked last year in an ticipation of the higher duties in corporated in the new tariff. The fathers of the Franciscan Monastery in Thompson street are exhibiting with a great deal of pride a solid gold receptacle which was made to contain the sacred relic of the bones of St. Anthony. It is made out of gold rings, bracelets, brooches, pins, and coins which were melted up. This jewelry, worth nearly $1,000, was contributed by the Italians of the neighborhood. The relic of St. Anthony was brought here two years ago from Italy and has since reposed in the Church of St. Anthony of Padua. According to the priests there the relic has worked many miracles, and persons who have kissed it have been cured of illness and suffering. The hoboes of the Brotherhood Welfare association, nf which J. Eads How, the "millionaire hobo," ir the leading spirit, will not go to Kansas to heip havvest the big wheat crop this year. The matter JHaa definitely decided at a recent meeting of the "brotherhood," when a proposition to ship f00 of their members as live stock by freight from New York to Topeka was sub mitted to them. They might be w illing to make the trip in T dman palace cars, some of them said, but most of them were more or less ac quainted with the discomforts of box car accommodations, and preferred the ease of park benches and idle ness while the weather continued warm. Following the example of Mr. Bel nsco and other leading theatrical managers and producers, the Shu terts finally have decided to take up the "movies." In association with a group of capitalists they have formed , the Shubert Feature Film Corporation, with a capital of $2,000, 000. The new concern will make photoplays of the regular stage prod uctlons controlled by the Shuberts. Among some of the best known of the productions to be filmed and shown are the English melodrama, "The Whip," "The Midnight Sons," "The Lure," "Girls," "The Blue Mouse," "The Girl Behind the Coun ter," "A Gentleman From Mississ ippi," "The Earl and the Givl," "Way IVwn East," "Bought and Paid For," and "A Chinese Honeymoon." The present dance craze is doing wonders for dealers in favors and other novelties. So large and varied is the demand that one prominent bouse in this city is carrying an as sortment that ranges in price, retail, from 5 cents to $15. Among them T.'e little dancing couples on paste board boxes that are to be filled with cf.ndy, as well as similar figures of celluloid, which may be perched on the edge of a glass and which serve as holders for place cards at tango teas and similar entertainments.

They are imported, of cou.-se, and are carried out elaborately as to detail. An organization called the Church and School Social Service Corpora tion has been formed here for pre senting moving pictures of a reli gious or educational nature for the use of chuches, schools, social set tlements, and other similar institu tions. An advisory board has been appointed, its members Including prominent churchmen and educators of New York and elsewhere. The Plan is to take pictures in the Holy Land and the mission fields, togeth er with educational and sociological subjects here and abroad, and sup ply them to the institutions intend ed to be served at a cost lower than the regular prices of the commercial companies. Julius Kruttschnitt, chairman . of the executive board of the Southern Pacific, has returned to New York after a trip to the Pacific coast. Mr. Kruttschnitt says that the crops in the west promise to be excellent and that he has never seen condi tions in that respect more promising. But he found general business de pressed. "I observed signs df de pression not only on our lines but on tile other roads I traveled over," he said. "There is very little west bound business moving, and that coming east is mostly in fruits. We are carrying between 200 and 250 carloads of cantaloupes out of Im perial valley every day. There is little building going on and mer chants have let their stocks get down, but they are not buying. There has been a surprising drop in pas senger travel, and the decrease In local revenues has been terrific." The new apple packing and grad ing law recently passed by the New York legislature will come into ef fect next Wednesday. The law pro vides for four classes or grades of the f.-uit, and for having the desig nations branded or otherwise marked on the containers. The name and address of the packer or repacker must also appear. The minimum size of the apples in a package, stated in variations - of one-quarter of an inch, must also be branded or marked on it. Fines will be imposed for violations of the provisions of the law. o SUFFRAGETTES (Continued from Page One) premier's table a brush that retails at ten shillings. "For my share in "making that, I get two pence,' said Mrs. Hughes. Her pay, she explained, was two pence for filling 200 holes with bristles, and her husband got two pence half penny for finishing the brush. To sup port her home required fourteen hours work a day. Another delegate said she was rear ing a family of six children under the age of thirteen on her husband's pay of 25 shillings a week as a docker. A pitiable story was related by a woman, who had started work In a jam factory at the age' of eleven. When left a widow with two children, she shared her small room with an un-. fortunate girl whose baby had ; been born in a workhouse. As the widow's wages could not feed them all, the'girl drowned herself and baby in the Thames. t Mr. Asquith in reply said that It would be-perhaps difficult to get sub.-', stantial and intelligent reform in thW East End unless the women themselves had a voice in choosing the members of parliament. But their problem was such that It could not be solved by any short cut. He promised to consider their case fully. Although the premier treated the delegates as nbn-milltants and at tacked militancy, the East London fed eration, which they represented, has never repudiated militancy. Nor have the delegates. o Chauffeur (under auto) I beg your pardon, sir, but would you mind backing the car up a little? Owner What's the matter?

POINT Adoption of Plan for State Highway System Vill Mean Material Reduction lof Taxes for First Four Years That the proposed bond issue for a state highway system will mean an actual reduction of taxes for at least four years, and in all probability no in crease over the present levy at the end of that time, is the statement of State Engineer Lamar Cobb, who re turned last evening after a trip to Florence and Tucson. Under the present arrangement, the tax levy for state roads is six cents on the hundred dollars, the fund avail able annually for the purpose being approximately $250,000. In case the bond issue is adopted, the amount needed during the first year for main tainance of existing roads and for pre liminary work on the state highway system will be not more than $500,000. The interest on this amount at five per cent would amount to only $25,000, only one-tenth as much as Is needed under the present arrangement. Tne second and third years the levy need ed to meet the interest payments would still be considerably less than at pres ent, and not until the fourth year, after the entire $5,000,000 worth of bonds had been sold would it be necessary to raise as much for interest payments as is needed under the present arrangement. Even then the inereasd valuation, due partially to the benefits accruing to the state from the construction of the system of good roads, would in all probability be large enough to make the levy necessary at that time consid erably less than six cents on the hun dred xiollars. . --- - Increase in the value of property is sure to follow wherever good roads are constructed, both by reason of the fact that they connect the territory through which they pass directly with markets, and also, because they serve to attract many to the community which they serve. In case the proposed bond issue is adopted, it is expected that the legis lature will repeal the law, providing for the road levy and that the existing roads will be kept up out of the funds to be derived from the sale of bonds. MEMORIAL TO CLARA BARTON WASHINGTON, July 12. The Clara Barton Memorial association has been organized for the purpose of carrying into effect a project for the erection of a fitting memorial to Clara Barton, at Glen Echo, Md. The famous Red Cross leader was born in the town of Oxford, Mass., but for the last eighteen years of her life she had made her home at Glen Echo. The tentative plans of the association call for the erection of a memorial building at a cost of $100,000. It will be in the nature of a museum and in it will be placed the relics, manuscripts, resolutions of thanks, etc., collected by Miss Barton during her long connection with the Red Cross society. It is also proposed to erect near by a training school for nurses. TYPOS OF TWO PROVINCES. MEDICINE HAT, Alta.. July 12.

BOY 111 12 CHI McNeil Burglary of Friday Night Cleared Up by the Capture and Confession of Clay Reaves Last Night Police Officer Roy Morrill and Dep uty Sheriff George Sears arrested Clay Reaves yesterday afternoon at about 5:30 o'clock charging him with steal ing a motorcycle from Riverside park belonging to Ray W. Ward and also burglarizing McUeil's store on west Washington street on Friday night. The young man was arrested at the place at which he has been rooming on North Second avenue and taken to the county jail. Soon after his arrival there he told the officers all be knew. supplementing the story of Roy Wil liams arrested the night before for at tempting to burglarize the Phoenix Mo torcycle company. According to the' story told by the boys they had Intended stealing an other motorcycle soon and caeheing them until about fair time, in the meantime treating them to a new coat of paint so as to disguise them. Then they would leave for parts unknown. The whole little plan, together with a campaign of burglary and petty lar ceny .that had been mapped out was knocked in the head when Williams was arrested on Saturday night. His confession Implicated Reaves and a watch was placed on the youhg gentleman with the rsult noted above. After his confession Reaves took the officers to the corner of Central ave nue and McDowell road where he had thrown some of the money into the cement ditch. The nickles and dimes could be seen at the bottom of the ce ment ditch. In like manner he threw money into other ditches along the route he had taken yesterday, he says, because he was afraid and worried. The two boys spent the night last night in the county jail. It is believed that they are responsible for the number of petty thieveries that have been going on here for some time, Williams is said to have been the Ting- leader of the two, but this is not known for a certaintv. each of the boys de claring the other was the arch per suader. o IRATE HUSBAND (Continued From Page One) make them turn back, but this they refused to do, as the turn was diffi cult and the outer road sandy, and the main road' narrow, making the possibility of the teams being stuck in the sand very probable. Fewel however, got down from the first wagon 'which he was driving and went back to the second one. At this point Thompson pulled his gun and pointed it in Fewel's direction but Walters the other freighter pulled an automatic and leveled it at Thomp son, commanding him to throw down his hand. This he did. Fewel coming up at the time grabbed for the pistol in the hands of Walters and obtained it but just at that time Thtnpson fired, the bullet entering the body of Fewel as above described. Fewel, however, did not fall but turned on Thompson and proceeded to beat him up with the gun. As soon as Fewel was dead, help was sent for, and the circumstances of the killing became noised around When Sheriff Adams arrived at Des ert Wells he insisted on the freight wagons returning to Mesa for the hearing in the morning. Fewel was well known in Arizona where he had lived a number of years He was known as an expert freigh ter. He was married and had a family, some of whom are married. He has a son living on the Tonto Basin. Thompson is also well known in this section. He has been living at Desert Wells about two or three years. He has relatives around here, and for some time was employed as a cook at Gass Brothers' restaurant in Phoenix. BIG EXHIBITION IN WINNIPEG WINNIPEG, July 12. Following the formal ceremonies of Saturday, the annual exhibition of the Winni peg Industrial Exhibition association will be opened to the public tomor row and will continue its activities through the week. The exhibition halls are filled this year with a wealth of exhibits that for variety and scope have never been excelled in this section of the Dominion. The industries and resources of western Canada are comprehensively illus trated by the great display. Partic ular attention has been paid to the agricultural and live stock exhibits, though other lines of activity have not been neglected. Amusement feat ures are numerous and of a high class and during the week there will be a band tournament, a race pro g.-am and other entertainment feat ures. o 1 TROLLEYS WANT RECOGNITION PEORIA, 111.. July 12. A question of interest and importance to trans portation circles throughout the coun try will be argued here tomorrow when representatives of leading Illin ois electric interurban lines will ap; pear before the Interstate Commerce Commission in support of a petition asking that the electric lines be granted through freight rate arrange ments with steam roads operating in their territory. Briefs will be pre sented in support of the petition de claring that the refusal of the steam railroads to make through rates on shipments originating on electrical lines has resulted vin heavy losses both, to the. electric railways and' to the shippers located near their lines. AUSTRALIANS ARE AFTER DAVIS CUP Team of Crack Tennis Artists now on Their Way to this Country to Capture Intsrnational Trophy NEW YORK, -July 12 The arrival of the Australian Davis cup team in this country during the present week is expected to give added impetus to both the international tennis matches and the sport in general. The team; consisting of Brookes, Dunlop, Doust and Wilding, Is one of exceptional strength and is considered to have an excellent chance of ultimately winning the trophy emblematic of the world's team championship in tennis. The quartet sailed yesterday and should arrive in New Tork on Friday of Saturday. They will go directly to the West Side club quarters at Forest Hills, L. I., for practice, moving on to Chicago at the end of the week for the first round against the Canadian team. These matches are scheduled for July 23, 24 and 25. Upon the completion of this match the Australiasian doubles pair, Wilding and Brookes, will enter In the Western championship in order to qualify for the national champion ship challenge round at Newport late in August. While the Canadian team will con sist of four players this year, including two former internationalists, it is con sidered unlikely that the combination can check the progress of the Austral asians toward the cup finals. The Maple Leaf representatives include R. B. Powell and B. P. Schwengers, both of Victoria, who played In the 1913 cup round, B. C. Mayers, of Winnipeg, and H. Sherwell of Toronto. Neither in dividually as a team does the Ca nadiar four rank with the Antipodeans and for this reason interest turns to ward the English team which is at present playing through the lower half of the draw on the home courts. Having successfully passed the Bel gium team at Folkstone last week the English players are at present cross ing racquets with the French combina tion on the championship courts at Wimbledon. As composed for these preliminary ties the team is considered strong enough to win its way to the final round against the Australasians at Boston, August 6, 7, and 8. but it is believed that England will select other players for the American Invasion since winter and spring tournament play abroad has shown that Kingsoote, Parke, Mavrogordato and Barrett do not as a combination class with the Australasians. o - . T (Continued from Page One.)' ors by his announcement last week of his formal entry into the senatorial field. For many years Senator Dil lingham and Mr. Prouty have been warm personal friends and political al lies. For these reasons, Mr. Prouty declared in his announcement, he dis liked to oppose Senator Dillingham, but he added that there were certain facts which he could not ignore. He declared that "throughout his senatorial career Mr. Dillingham has consistently and persistently, and, without doubt, hon estly since his sympathies all lie in that direction acted with that coterie of senators who have been known as the champions of special interests. These men were the bodyguard of Sen ator Aldrich when he was the leader of the United States senate, and they were generally all propositions for reform, which were supposed to unfavorably affect the interests for which "they stood." The probabilities are that the names of at least five candidates for the sen atorship will go on the November bal lots, owing to the fact that there is not likely to be any direct primaries in Vermont this year. Some time ago it was understood that there would be a conference of the leaders of the politi cal parties to draft a direct primary bill and that the legislature would be called to pass the bill together with some other urgent matters. But this plan seems to have fallen through and the probabilities are that the nomina BENNETT .Tonight, Monday, concludes the en gagement of the Five Bennett Sisters at the Columbia, 'and as an apprecia tion pf the excellent reception given j he - . sirL - -r i 'Jnj :' ';:: TflT r M mm. mm m -i mmmmmyfK .

The talk regarding fusion is that tlTe democrats would be willing if the pro gressives would agree to support their candidates for United States senator and governor, . the democrats giving them the lieutenant governorship, the two congressmen and half the state of fices on the state ticket. There was talk of a similar union of the democrats and progressives two years ago, but owing to . the failure of the local party leaders among the Roosevelt men and the democrats to agree on a division of the elective of fices, the plan fell through and the three parties went it alone. Now the fusion plans have been revived, but whether with any better chance of suc cess than before remains to be seen. o FLICKERINGS AT TONOPAH Occasional Encounter. From Tonopah Reported associated press dispatchI TONOPAH, July 12. Occasional en counters between individuals were aH that remained of last night's fight, be tween members of the Western Feder ation of Miners and the Industrial Workers of the World. Three organiz ers of the latter body were jailed, two of them, Stephens and McGucken, ar rived from Goldfield today, renewed the posters torn down last night and were arrested when they refused to stop. They were refused bail. o STATUS OF RACERS IN ROYAL REGATTA FIXED H.nley Stewards Decide That All Competing Clubs Must Here after Comply with Reg ulations. Tassociatbd press dispatch HENLEY, England, July 12 The stewards of the English Royal Henley Regatta, where American and other foreign crews and scullers competed so meritoriously last week, have ta ken decisive steps to fix the status of these rowing races in the future. Because of the prominent and clas sic history of this regatta and its SISTERS CLOSE TONIGHT IN ADDED them throughout the week, their part of the program will be extended quite a bit The twins the younger sisters will first definition of moDeybsck. San FraaciKO trophies there is a constantly increas ing pressure from foreign rowing clubs to be permtited to enter their best scullers, four and eights. Under the affiliation agreement the British amateur Rowing Association and similar association of other countries athe crews of any club, membera of these associations are eligible for en try at Henley providing their ama teur status complies with the Henley regulations. The Australian oarsmen, however. brought forward a point which the Henley stewards refused to concede when they asked permission to enter an all-Australian eight at the recent regatta. The secretary , of the regat ta management replied in part to the request as follows: "My committee, after very careful examination are of the opinion that. under the rules, this would me Im possible. By Rule IV, the entry of a crew from outside the United King dom cannot be accepted unless such crew belongs to a club which Is af filiated to a union or federation hav ing an agreement with the committee of management of Henley Royal Re gatta. This rule obviously contem plates, and has always been Inter preted as contemplating, a union or federation of separate clubs duly af filiated thereto, which by virtue of its constitution exercises control over those clubs. If such an entry were permitted in one instance, other bo dies would follow suit, and the United Kingdom would, in self defence, be compelled to form a representative crew, probably ertry year. This would entirely alter the character of Henley Regatta, and would be ser iously detrimental to the rowing of those clubs and colleges by . which Henley Regatta has been supported since its institution, and which con stitutes the backbone of rowing in this country. No doubt there have been many entries in the past at Henley Regatta from the Oversea Do minions, as well as from foreign countries, but they have been from clubs formed on a basis similar to that of the rowing clubs in this country. No entry has ever been tendered by a crew representing the whole of a county and it is not thought advisable that a new departure in this direction, should be made." Mrs. Charlotte Perkins Gilman Is quoted as saying: "The economic dependence of woman on man has caused almost all of the misery in the world. The man has . had to make money to get love; the woman has had to make love to get money." FEATURES give their original boxing act, and this is said to even surpass their excellent wrestling stunts, but which will in no way be altered.
