D -r-'VV-"" GreatTrials History- Trial of Baron Trenck One of the last tragedies of the reign of terror was the execution of Baron Frederick Trenck as an Austrian spy on July 25, 1794, in Paris. Had it hap pened in remote ages historians would have hesitated to have entered it on record, believing that it was some monstrous fable of overwrought and disordered tradition. Trenck was the scion of a noble Prussian family. When he was nine teen years of age he was unjustly im prisoned in the fortress of Glatz by Frederick the Great. From this he contrived to escape, but was retaken a few years afterwards. He then suf fered for nine years in the fortress of LEGAL NOTICES.

His own nar rative of what he endured is every where famous. After his release he entered the Rus sian service, but upon his cousin's death and coming into the family estates, he returned to Germany. Be tween the years 1771 and 1777 he visit ed England and France, and was after wards employed by the Austrian gov ernment in diplomatic or secret service commissions. In 1788 Trenck visited Paris, where he was the hero of society for a mo- ... . . ,T trison labor as employed in the state the revolutionary period. He was one !" of a coterie of eminents who were read work, it being alleged that he compelled to suffer and among his fel- ! made the assertion that the cost of low-prisoners were Andrew Chenier, road work by convicts was twice and the eminent Rouchcr. They were I as much as under the contract sys tried before the Revolutionary tribunal tcm. In order to correct any im on July 25. 1794. Trenck was accused pression of the sort, the following of being the secret agent of the king i of Prussia and he was charged, more over, as were also Andrew Chenier and Roucher, with having taken part in the conspiracy of the prisoners in the detention house at St. Lazarus. When the president of the tribunal said to him: "Trenck, you are accused of maintaining a criminal correspon- dence with the kings of Europe" he braced himself for a reply: "The equity of the public prosecutor has been im posed upon. I have written no letters to Germany. For a long time I have ceased to frequent palaces, and if the kings of Europe wished to learn what was passing in France they would not have recourse to one who has ever shown himself the champion of the people and of liberty. Citizens, you here see the marks Which despotism has stamped upon my limbs, and you can imagine I would devote this hand to the defense of tyranny?" When the president accused him of corresponding with the emperor of Germany and he made an effort to ex plain, the prosecutor general said: "I object to the accused being allowed any longer time for entering into useless digression. The moments of the tribu nal are precious, and we have no time to lose." "You have no time to lose," retorted Trenck: "do you count the moments lost which are granted to an accused to defend himself?" The president, however, allowed him to .speak. He gave a brief history of his life. after which he bowed respectfully to the tribunal and a lengthy murmer of admiration rang through all parts of the assembly. To this speech the pros ecutor general answered: "I will give up that branch of the charge which relates to the secret dealings with the enemies of France, hut what can the accused reply to the overwhelming ac cusation which I shall now bring for wardthe plotting in the prison of St. Lazarus?" To this Trenck replied: "We wished to escape from punishment. When I escaped from the fortress of Glatz they increased the weight of my chainH, they double-bolted liy dungeon, but they did not take my life. It was reserved for a revolutionary tribute to go beyond kings in tyranny and in persecution." By a single word Trenck could have saved himself had he merely denied his complicity in the plot to escape. He scorned a denial. "Citizens." he said. my companions' fate shall be mine; I will live or die with them." The jury immediately retired and in a quarter of an hour returned with a verdict of guilty against all the ac cused. They were condemned to death. They then arose in silence and retired tinder the escort of the gendarmes. At half-past two they had been con demned: at four the fatal tumbril con veyed them to the Place de la Revolu tion. Trenck was guillotined the last but one. He mounted the .scaffold as he would have mounted a bench, and ex claimed before yielding his head to the fatal knife: "Frenchmen, we die In nocent avenge our deaths and re-establish liberty by Immolating the as sassins who tarnish and disgrace her." A Tew seconds later he ceased to live.

The patient, Maria Tondini, was being operated upon for the recovery of a needle accidentally imbedded in the flesh near her heart. During the operation, while Doctor Vanuccl was holding the girl's heart in his hand, pulsation suddenly ceased. The phy sician declared the girl dead, and his colleagues confirmed him. As a for lorn hope. Doctor Vanuccl began to massage the heart. The organ was gradually stimulated into activity and the girl lived again. Then the op eration was concluded. There is ev ery hope that the young woman will recover. Chicago Examiner. PETEY ABROAD He COST OF PRISON LABOR IS SHOWN The slate engineer has been an noyed of late by certain misquota tions of a statement attributed to him regarding the economic value of extract from the state engineers re port was made public yesterday, at the office of the state engineer: ECONOMIC VALUE PRISON LABOR (By Lamar Cobb, State Engineer) So many factors enter into the economic value of prison labor on highway construction in Arizona that it varies between wide limits. Under Guard Under average conditions at pres ent the cost of road construction with prison labor under guard ap proximates its cost by contract. Better construction is always secured by prison labor than by contract and this is of great or small value, de pendent upon the character of the work. The value of prison labor is increasing with experience gained by its use. The cost per working man per day has decreased on the Bisbee Tombstone highway from $1.98 in January to $1,313 in Juno with an average for nine months of $1,619. This does not include the cost of stockade, camp and camp equipment, which cannot be segregated until completion of the job. On bridge work done in the past I am inclined to believe that its value has not been as great as on road work, or will ever be, unless road construction is carried on in connection therewith to utilize surplus labor (in camp, which at times is not needed on the bridge construction). The economic minim um as to the number of prisoners for a road or bridge construction camp is not less than from 70 to 100. As compared to work done by day labor or force account, prison labor under guard is more economical. Their efficiency has been estimated by those in immediate charge of the work from 66 2-3 to over 100 iter cent as compared to free labor of the same character. Without Guard Both road and bridge work can be done far more economically by the use of prisoners under the honor system that it can be done by con tract, force account or day labor. As with prison labor under -, guard, its value is increasing with experience gained by its use. On the Globe Roosevelt highway the cost per working man has averaged "for six months M.05 per day (exclusive of transportation) with a minimum of .68c in June. This does not include the cost of camp and camp equip ment which cannot be segregated until completion of the job. The economic minimum as to number of prisoners for a construction Is 40 to 50. Since the first of this year the boards of supervisors in the counties where prison labor has been employ ed (except Pinal, where only a small frrce was engaged) have been fur nished monthly statements showing total expenditures and segregated costs including that of prisoners per working man day. These statements also have been furnished the news papers in the vicinity of the work. The system of keeping and report ing monthly unit cost data for prison labor construction forces was worked out by Chief Clerk E. P. Adams and Division Engineers J. ('. Ryan and F. G. Twitchell assisted by Office Engineer T. F. Nichols and the re duction in operating expense is large ly attributable to this system. ' There is no state highway depart ment or penitentiary in the union under whose .direction prison labor is employed that furnishes such com plete cost data as does this depart ment and at the time when it is of the greatest value during construc tion. In fact, notwithstanding the h.rge number of states that employ prison labor on highway construction, there has been so very little cost data kept that it has been impossi ble to estimate its economic value therefrom and the people generally have labored under an erroneous im pression of its economic value also as to its aggregate value in Arizona. The number of honor men available does not at the present time exceed fifty and the total number of able bodied men in the state prison that can be furnished for road work does not exceed 190.

Manager Cavaness is obtaining the exclusive right of some of the great est films that have ever been seen here, ami he dues not at that hesi tate to change his program every day and show every day a bill full of features. Today be has two excellent pictures of the multiple reel order, one an American film. "The Ghost of the Hacienda," a story of how- a I girl obtained the advantage over a gang of Mexican bandits by playing upon their superstitions. Winifred Greenwood is the girl character. "The Blindness of Courage," an heroic drama in three reels is a splendid release, while t ho sixth reel a west ern story from the Flying A studios, "In Three Hours" brings the piogrnm up to the splendid standard estab lished, and besides there are more coming. Mrs. Peyton's Pearls "Mrs. Peyton's Pearls" is the title of a splendid Kalem offering which will lead the bill at the Lamara to day. It is in two reels. The l.ubin offering is a comedy, "He Wore a Wig." said to be one of the sti iking laugh producers of the season. "The Girl at His Side," a Solig completes an interesting bill. Tomorrow there will be shown tho I'athe program headed by Emma Destinn in "The I.iona Bride." There is always something doing at the Lamara. Shamrock IV There is a great deal of interest in the international yacht races this year, especially since the Shamrock IV, the Lipton challenger is now on the way across the Atlantic. The pictures of the trials of this wonder ful boat will be seen at the Arizona theater today, and they promise to attract some crowds. Tho rest of the program is excellent composed of a two reel S. & A. of the best kind. "A Song in the Dark" and a Vitagraph comedy featuring John Bunny and Flora Finch, "Bunny's Swell Affair." Complete Change at Empress It has long been the policy of the Coliseum to offer a slight change in its Saturday bills. This week this idea will be followed out at the Em press but to a much greater extent than usual. Tho entire three acts the French Langnage will offer an entirely different line of cntertainmnet, and the patrons will not be able to tell tonight's produc tion from the ones seen earlier in the ween. "The Dallas Comedy Four" will introduce their own original New York newsboy sketch, and if it equals their former efforts in quality all desired will lie more than fulfilled. "The Geo! gesons" will abandon their automobile novelty and furnish a new line of comedy that is sure of the laughs. DeMctrio Or tiz is there with bells in his head balancing novelty and promises a new bunch of stunts. New pictures will Vie shown, making the bill a complete change. The Regale The Saturday program at The He gale will comprise five reels of first release Universal pictures. "The Daughter of a Crook", a splendid Vic tor, is the feature of the bill. "A Hopi Legend" is a Nestor western legend taken in the neighborhood of the Grand Canyon and the far famed snake darv e locality. The bill is completed with an Esclair comedy, a. good one at that, "Cue and Mice Cue" which is said to be full of laughs. The Wharf Rat at Lion The Lion program is very satisfying as usual. The headliner is a Broncho two-reel feature called "The Wharf Rat." The plot is a little different from the ordinary and it contains many thrilling scenes. The one reel Ameri can fi'm is called "A rrirce of rio hemh." ami deals wi.h a little chil.i SPECIAL BARGAINS 10 acres with modern 5-room house, just off Central Avenue, near ear line. 5 acres alfalfa, on ear line, $1,000; $350 cash. 20 acres in Glendale; city water; 1-room house; im proved.
