PAGE THREE 8ip SECOND Sir IafrHafiiijfr.'irilliant and TJV)lit-k; Soldier, Has Been ' A yrf oiittfd i d- Com mand of tlie Home 'Purees.' BIB JOINT PICNIC; OF r B. OF t. AMD M. IB. TOOAlf This Afternoon Will Be Farmers' Day at Phoenix - Resort . ; AI ICE-COQKD THEATRE LONDON August 16, One of the military events of the moment has been the appointment of Sir. Ian Hamilton to .be commander of the home army, a post that is,feg-a'rled as inferior only to the jo7iaianaSricb.i!P&ir Ian Is one of the most 'striking figures in the British military service. With his tall, commanding figure, and his gaunt face, seemingly deeply -Worn with care, and his searching eyes, he is a per sonage not easily to be forgotten when once" met. More taciturn than Lord Kitchener himself, General Hamilton has long been known among his friends and sub ordinates as "the silent soldier." He has reduced the necessity for speaking to the minimum,- and a-well known of ficial at the war office has been heard to declare that "one of Hamilton's grunts is more expressive 'than a whole sentence from anybody else." Though, without doubt, his chief abil ities are in the way of organization and administration, -yet he is" a- splendid man in the field, as he has- proved on tnany-nccawiQTis in South Africa, Egypt and India. Wherr Sir' Ian-. Hamilton .returned home from the last war in South Afri ca, he not unnaturally . thought that he had finished wjth' active service for a time, and so he settled down in his position at the-War office as literary secretary. -, 4 But when,-, a few . months later, it was seen that the task of end ing the war was Jlkeljj to.prpye a more difficult one hanwas at first antici pated, and it, became obvious that Lord Kitchener was in need of a first-c'ass assistant, Lord BQperts .was .very anx ious that Sir.Ian Hamilton should re turn. The latter, demurred, however, and was by no means eager to go out again if someone ejse could, be found. At last there came another letter from Loird Kitchener asking again that a chfef of staff should be "sent to him, and-ad4in.SE. .QB..;i.with; brains pre ferred." 'M;-1mniorlBa1a 'Uiri Rctb'etta-' jftfte fcjreftt.;ar fafe: passed the letter over to him, "that settles it; you wid have to go now," and go Hamilton di3? Without doubt Sir Ian Hamilton, in the matter of personal injuries, Is one of the unluckiest men alive, and the only wonder is that he has notbeen killed a dozen times over. Yearstago, onthe Indian frontier, he praetifiijlly; lo the use of his left arm through thj burting of a shell, and on another ocwsion he was struck in the face with a (Splinter, and very narrowly escaped losing his eyesight, and has received countless other wounds of varying se verity. His crowning piece of in -luck, hojyever, was when Lord Roberts -de spatched him to deal with the Orange Fr)e Staters, under General De Wet, in th$ summer of 1900, and he fell from a restive horse and smashed his collar bone, just as he had got his command into working order. This meant that another commandant had -to be- ap pointed, and Sir Archibald Hunter was selected, and ultimately reaped the credit for the surrenders of the younger Crpnje and Prinsloo. Preparations for .the: big Farmers' . Day celebration on Thursday are al most complete and when the joint committee of the M. & M. and board of trade get together this afternoon the finishing touches to the program will be decided upon. The plan is to. have , the Farmers arrive at Riverside during the morn ing and the program of sports and fun will begin immediately after" lunch and last all through the afternoon and into the evening. The list of events will include not only the-usual-track events but it will take in- whole lot of novelties that will ap peal not only to the farmers bat to' the general public as well. There will be horse and pony races and farm wagon races, greased pig chasing anil greased pole climbing, water polo and a lot of events that have not toeen seen about here in a long time.1' Interest in the day is growing fast- and all the business men of the city are welcoming the opportunity to meet the farmers outside of business and in a manner that will build up a friendship between them. Every sec tion of the country has its annual Farmers' Day and it. Is the. Intention Of the M. & M. and boafd of trade to make this an annual event which will become of vast importance to the whole community. It is the - farm and the farmer that make the Phoe nix of today possible and anything that will serve to bring the business men in touch with this most import ant member of the community can not fail to be of benefit to the whole valley; o JAPANESE GOVERNMENT (Continued From Page One) PURSE SNATCHED Although she brake her parasol over her assailant's heftd, Mrs. G.

In the mean time the most favorable reports of the impression he has made aire being re ceived in Phoenix. Recently a concert was given at Cheyenne, Wyoming, for the benefit of the parish house fund of St. Mark's church there, and Mr. Mills, assisted by two other musicians, gave the re cital part of the program. Th epro gram was a very beautiful one and was exceptionally well rendered. Mr. Mills sang a number of selections. There were the quaint, sometimes vvierd Indian melodies, the tender Italian love song, the selection from the ODera A:da. Hut the masterpiece was the Cycle of Song "Eliland," by von Fe- itz, translated from the German by A. M. von Blomberf. The event was one of the most bril iant society events of the summer sea son at Cheyenne. Among the patron esses of the concert were the wives Of Governor Carey, Senator Warren, Gen eral Pershing and Bishop Thomas.

With war in Great Britain, Ger many, France and Austria, there is e ery reason to believe that the im ports of glass and pottery products from those countries into the United States will be materially decreased from now until the end of the war. Possibility exists also that the de mand for the domestic lines of pot tery and glass will become greater in the meantime. AH of the potteries and glass table ware factories in Western Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia have resumed opera tions and they have orde.-s booked that will keep them busy well into 1913. o OBITUARY Word was received last night of the death at Long Win I Beach, Cat, of Virginia Hamilton, the daughter of Mrs. Installed for Ellis H.

ROME, Aug. 16. Although Italy has grain sufficient to . last several months, the closing of the Dardanelles through which the importations come and the suspension of exportations from Argentina compel Italy to look to the United States for future pro visions. The government has reserv ed offers in the American markets. It will assume the war risks. Evening Performances Start at 10 or 11:30 and Continue Till 1 O'Clock. Motion picture theaters in the Ma drid district usually have a seating capacity of six hundred to seven hundred, although there are two in this city which seat one thousand. In addition, when the regular theaters of Madrid have any week or period of time for which no plays are booked, they fill in with a speciuJ picture show. We are told by the managers Of moving picture theaters that they endeavor to show from three thou sand to thirty-five hundred metres (9,800 to 11,500 feet) at each per formance wdien but two a day are given. If there are but two sessions per day the afternoon performance begins at 5 to 5:30, and the evening at 10 to 11:30; otherwise a continu ous performance beginning at 5:30 in the afternoon and running with slight intermissions to 1 o'clock in the morning is given. Scenes from the new films are billboards outside the theater and along the streets, order to draw patronage, but always on colored posters. The films in favor are those made up from historical novels or inci dents, such as "Quo Vadis," "The Three Musketeers." ''Spartacus," fol lowing which come war, cowDoy (American), detective and intrigue films, then scenic, comic, education al, chases, etc. The reading matter and announcements must always be in Spanish. Many makes of films from Europe and the United States are !n use, but the French and Ital ian predominate. The only American films in great favor are those show ing Far West scenes, with cowboys and particularly Indians. Spanish children, who form half of the au diences, are extremely fond of In dian scenes. Other American films, such as comic and drama, are con sidered crude in gestures and ac tions compared with similar films from European manufacturers. Films showing weekly current events all over' the world usually have, one or two American scenes. Educational films are little used. At the great universities occasional exhibitions are given by some lec turer, but none at th public schools. There are no trade papers devoted to motion picture interests, and but two manufacturers of films in this consular district, which comprises nearly half of Spain. Of the two, Pathe Freres take Spanish scenes of all kinds, while the Union .Cinemata grafica takes bull fights only.- LONDON, Aug. 16.
