JUST AS EUROPE All NATIONS ARE FBGHT1MG MOHGST Hi So Have Korrick's Decided To Wage War HIE BIS WERE SUNG OLD MAN BAD LUCK READY TO WEAR APPAREL PRICE THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN, FRIDAY MORNING, AUGUST 7, 1914. f OH 6IRLS! THE SUN WAS SHINING EiSELVE AND BEAT 1 ON ALL WOMEN'S Most Unpopular Person Tried to Play on the Fence, But Failed to Garner Sufficient Votes in the Count to Get the Nomination In Other Words, the "Hoi Polloi" Yelled in Accents Wild, "Kill the Umpire!" By SALLY JACOBS It was a lovely day fur a murder. Turing the hottest hours of yesterday the Solons killed Old Man Bud Luck at the ball grounds in Mesa, and those who witnessed the killing de clare that it was hut the beginning of a series of like affairs. The jury, while in sympathy with their dead Viother, joined with the relatives of the murderers in demanding the re in II of the judge, whose deeisions fr m when the trial started until he resigned i?) at the eighth hour were indisi riminately votten (pardon me, tuit they all said so). . Jte was a most unpopular person and I doubt if Louis Trimble will ever have the opportunity of umpiring ..another game of baseball in the Salt River i-.lley. I also doubt if he would if he could, for tlie fans certainly gave him hard and cruel treatment. If he has a conscience he at least can leel satisfied that if he did wrong he l1 the price. He was all that dis turbed the perfect happiness of the few Phoenicians who journeyed to the south side to see the third of the Thoenix-Mesa series of nine games. The jinx has been dispelled: All 1 well nnce more! Hurrah and then another one, long and loud for the Lawmakers won, seven to five. ' The very best little thing about the event aside from it being so in formal (no one wore smart frocks jmd ice cream cones .and soda pop were perfectly good form) was the v. ay Captain Barrett's men behaved. The trip across the river must have refreshed thera greatly, for they were nil "right on the job," as the man t.thind me remarked. Our two new men are quite attractive though I think most of the grand-stiinders I referred Mr. Curley, the good look ing catcher. He has such a neat little way of grasping the fouls and the balls thrown from the field are Fi:re of like courteous treatment. Mr. Bone pitched for a time, hut af ter he became veary Mr. O'Brien, fi'.ir. fat and forty, went to the mound. The ball, when once re moved from his hands, goes swiftly imrt surely "tint Mr. O'Brien's manner is acceptable to the crowds. It takes him a lofi time to get started. But n I said Sf'tfT thd start '"is made it's delightful. Mr. Billy Dodge played fast enough to make up for any rther slownss of which he might have been accused. He's really a vonderful hoy. and the other young chap. Mr. Kern Warren, did some marvelous playing. . In the seventh inning, on the run he made a gor. peons catch in his gloved hand. Mr. Hobo Hathaway redeemed himself for past errors by a half dozen stun ning catches and runs and things. By this time I think Mr. Hathaway should receive the recognition of his tfatn and be given the official cos tume. It was Just like old times to have Mr. Kimherly in center field and the talkative fan next to me said: vLook at the ball it's right in the well when It goes to Kimberly." It must have been a prohibition joke and I oidn't understand it. "No one has it on Barton when it comes to ball," yelled some one after one of Mr. Barton's vicious strikes. Wouldn't you hate to have that man for your enemy? The way he goes after anything he dislikes is a cau tion and he's not fond of Mesa, evi dently. tjl Remember when you were quite a youngster how you saved the best until the last? Captain Barrett, of home run fame, played first base, pnd it was really his best perform ance in that capacity. Everyone spoke of his head work and we were all immensely pleased last evening r,y the brilliant way he led his men to victory. You know the Mesa men are evtr so much nicer than you'd believe, just meeting them casually. Mr. Pomeroy is really a favorite of mine, because he has a fscinating way of throwing the boll. I'd like to men tion all the others, because they cer tainly do appreciate it, but I'll have to wait until next week when new lights will be thrown on their char acters when they meet their friends from Miami. They have engage ments for the thirteenth, fourteenth, fifteenth and sixteenth in Mesa. Yes Mesa that's the rub. Why do you suppose they meet there and not at Riverside? You don't think I wonder if it's because they prefer not being seen. Editorial Note: This is awful long but ain't you glad you read it? RAILROADS PROTEST AGIST VALUATION State Board of Equalization Having a Busy Week Mining Com panies' Taxes to Be Raised Keep the Bumpety bump from the Back Bone of Your Baby Bump, bump, jog, bump that's what the ordinary seat-springs of an ordinary baby carriage do to the spine of your baby. . rrPi GUAKAnlLLUJ Tk Nam oa th FranM of Ever Genuine b the only one made that is bump proof, jar-proof, shock-proof.

Representatives of five railway companies of the state appeared be for the state board of equalization yesterday to protest against the 1314 valuation placed on their property by the state tax commission. John V. Berg.en, tax agent and H. B. Harding, his assistant, appeared on behalf of the El Paso and South western Railroad company and filed a protest against the valuation placed on the company's lines in Arizona. The Arizona Eastern and Phoenix and Eastern were represented by J. Gibson Taylor, and the Arizona and New Mexico by Norman Carmichael, vice president and general manager cf the railway. The valuation of $114,500 per mile placed on the Ray and Gila Valley was attacked by L. S. Cates, superin tendent, and A. J. McClean, secretary and treasurer of the company. Judge Kent also appeared as counsel for the company. Notice to the effect that the state board of equalization contemplates increasing the 1914 valuation of the properly of the Phoenix Railway company to the extent of $35,000 was sent out yesterday. The proposed raise is on account of the new line to the Asylum road and the double tracking of the Indian School ear line. The company is given until Saturday at ! o'clock to appear and show cause why such increase should Dot he made. That a number of mining com panies of the state may prepare for an increase in the assessed valuation of their property was made known yesterday when formal notice was served on the Calumet and Arizona, the American Smelting and Refining company, the Old Dominion Coppc.- .(lining ana hmelting company and the Miami Copper company of con. templated raises n the valuation of mining machinery. Hearings in the matter of the proposed increase are set for Saturday, August 8. T ROAD WORK TO BE INVESTIGATED Commission to Be Sent Out By De partment of Agriculture Will Make Report on Efficiency.
