PAGE THREE IN TIS NOISE SO PERSONALITY I PEOPLE MW Nobody Can Explain What It Is Except That It At tracts Scads of Other Folks Not So Blest Bobby Deane Has It According to First Hand Informa J tion She Also Has a Mama She Cannot Do Without By SALLY JACOBS "Gee but I like the city The weather it can't be beat. Back east you know it's 20 lfclow In summer they die of heat. Gee, but I like the city The weather is simply fine, I'll never go back to Iowa Fhoenix town for mine." Take a Scotch high ball whether you believe in drinking or not for its as harmless as the Bryan cocktail. 2Cot all brands of course but the one they serve over at the Colum bia this week. 'While it does not intoxicate it certainly exhilarates, and one of the most exhilarating things about it is the Phoenix song which had to be sung again and again by every member of the chorus before the big audience was satis fied. Little Miss Bobbie Deane was fea tured in a song and dance number and the athletic youngster made a decided hit. She was perfectly un concerned and took it all as a mat ter of course preferring to talk of other things when given the oppor tunity. The very first thing she tells you is: "I don't know what I'd do without mother." Don't be doubtful because after you have seen mamma' manage, you are convinced of that great truth, "A girl's best friend is her mother." "Bobbie cart take care of herself," Sirs. Deane assures you and then proceeds to dress daughter, conduct the interview along her own lines, and generally take charge as commander-in-chief. In the meantime the nineteen-year torn boy who has won scores of ad mirers at the Columbia this week, looked down demurely'and acknowl edged she had never been separated from her watchful parent in the se ven years-she had been on the stage. Not even for an hour! Oh, dear! "And when, the boys ask you out after the show?" "I always answer 'Mother's here if you want to take her,' said the duti ful one and added in a stage ( ?) whisper, "but they don't always want to be chaperoned." "The boys are perfectly lovely to me," said the unsuspecting guardian of the baby doll. "They are always delighted when I join their little parties, which are, of course, quite simple. Bobbie is such a young girl, you know, that I only permit the sort of entertainment usual for a child her age. She is not starved for amusement however, and gets a great deal of pleasure swimming, rid ing and motoring." "Any joy rides?" Came a quickly smothered "Yes," and a very decided "No," and though the voices are very like I seemed to credit the replies to the proper per sons. Bobbie could no longer be subdued and to give expression to her feelings flung out her arms in the manner familiar to theater-goers and which she describes as "kinder crazy like." "That's the way I act," she de clared. "It's just comes out like that ; and never twice alike. It's a joy to , have a part where I can be just my own self and go ahead lickety split without having to study each move. No, I don't mind the make up. I'm i not so much on looks anyway and ' don't give a care for pretty duds. All I'm after is something cool. Not that 1 I'm roasting the climate I like Phoe tnix, its treating me bully." Isn't it great to have personality? o HOW ANTONIO LOPEZ II REFUGEES ARE WELL CARED FOR Secretary -Garrison Reiter ates Steamship Accom modations for Americans from All Parts of Europe Are Adequate. GERMANS ATTACK (Continued From Page One) he wns taken with other captives to Cologne. Stop, Reader, This Is Not a Tale of Ray Massacres, But of a Peace ful Homesteader How Antonio Lopez (not the mys terious Lopez of the Ray massacres, nor even he of the Apex mine) ac quired right to certain good tillable soil near Peoria is a tale of perse verance truly Salt River valiant. It was releated in affidavit and deposition and statement and in con versation before Receiver Birdno of the United States land office yester day. Lopez occupied and applied for homestead rights on a certain fertile patch near Peoria. He did this as early as October, 1912. But learn ing it was withdrawn from entry, he continued residence, cultivated twen ty acres, waxed prosperous in a small way, and finally caused the government of the United States to relax its hold on said land. Simul taneous with his filing, came that of James K. Bock, whose "settlement occurred at the earliest possible hour rfter the lind was thrown open under Lopez' beseechings. So Lopez had a lot of good folk swear how he had tilled the soil, and made It to blossom like a whole hot house full of roses, and Bock couldn't even allege residence nor cultivation. So the application of Lopez was al lowed, and now, after many years, he gets his chance to become one possessed of a portion of this glad some world to have and to hold as long as the decree of the president, duly inscribed on patents, is legally efficacious.

Phone 1310 and Phone 2464. associated press dispatch WASHINGTON, Aug. 24 Secretary Garrison, chairman of the government's relief board, reiterated that steam ship accomodations for Americans from all parts of Europe are adequate for the present and that reports showed improvement in the financial condi tions of Americans in the war zone. Assistant Secretary Breckenridge of the war department cabled the follow ing report today from Berlin: "I left the Hague with my party last Saturday August 22, the Dutch gov ernment furnishing a special train to the frontier. There the German gov ernment gave us a special train to Ber lin, where we arrived at 8 a. m. Sunday. The trip was made possible by the ex treme courtesy of the German gov ernment. I will get in touch with the situation in Austria and Italy from here." Garrison announced that he had been advised of the departure yesterday from Liverpool for New York, of the St. Faul and Olympic, the former car rying 630 first class and 330 second class passengers, the latter 726 first, 800 second and 346 third class passen gers. The American minister to Portugal Thomas Birch, cabled from Lisbon that no financial aid has been necessary up to the present time. Consul Robert J. Thompson at Aixi La Chapelle, Germany telegraphed that Americans and British in East Belgi um, Liege VeVrviers and Spa, are all right and that non-combatants are given full protection. Consul General Bergholz at Dresden telegraphed that his failure to find Americans inquired about, should cause no worry as hundreds of Ameri cans left Dresden at the outbreak of the war for coast cities. The consul added he could say posi tively that Americans and their prop erty arc safe in Dresden. Particular attention he said is being given to the protection of Americans and they will receive friendly treatment from the authorities in Saxony. Discuss Military Situation PARIS, Aug. 25.(Tuesday) The military situation was discussed at a special meeting at the Elysee Pal ace last night presided over, by Pres ident Poincare, which lasted over three hours. The Servian government in a pro test to France declares the Austrian army during ite retreat along the Ri- er Drina, committed cruelties upon old men, . women and children, vio lating all rules of warfare. Jap Charge Leaves BERLIN, via London, Aug. 24. The Japanese charge d'affaires, who was handed his passports by the German government yesterday, has left Berlin. His departure was ac companied by no untoward incident. He is proceeding to the Dutch frontier. Americans Diminishing THE HAGUE, via London 8:21 p. m., Aug. 24. Although there are many Americans still in Germany, their num her i3 rapidly diminishing. Mrs. Alex ander Behrendt and daughter of New York, who arrived here from Carlsbad, report there are not over fifty Ameri cans 'remaining there. City councillors at Carlsbad present ed the American women with bouquets of red, white and blue flowers when their trains departed. All travelers re ported having received most corteous treatment. The European war will probably dis pel the idea prevailing in some quar ters that American ambassadors and ministers in Europe exist chiefly for ornamental purposes. There have been literally hundreds of instances of gen erous sacrifices made by Americans to assist unfortunate countrymen, but' the bulk of this work has fallen upon the diplomatic consular officials and the manner in which they have assumed the burden is praiseworthy. Not only have they worked night and day and Sunday, but they have also contributed thousands of dollars to assist needy compatriots. Another gratifying feature of the situation is in the manner in which prominent Ameri cans in Europe have been volunteering to assist the officials. Dr. Morton Talks LONDON, August 24. Dr. R. K. Morton, of Philadelphia, who a"- rived in London from Lausanne, said 'The alarm is spreading in Bolougno. The idea now prevails there that the Germans will try to capture that port and the report is general of a plan to shut off communication be tween France and England. The people of Boulogne fear the foggy, c'oudy season when they expect act- vity by the Germans along the Eng- ish channel." Oscar S. Straus, former American ambasador to Turkey, and member of the permanent court of arbitration, said. "Sympathy' with the allies in the war would be greatly increased were It not for the feeling that Russia cloes not grant all her citizens equal rights in times of peace. In war Russia is willing that men of all faiths shall fight. All he.- citizens want to fight. But In a spirit of fairness Russia should put all her citizens on an equal footing both in time o? war and time of peace."

The Minne waska, an Atlantic transport liner, ar rived tonight from London with 241 passengers, the majority of them Americans. The crew of two French ships at the dock crowded the rails and cheered the Briton as she tied up at ner pier. The voyage began on August 15 and except in the English Channel, where the British patrol ships were seen, no vessels of war were sighted. The Min newaska's lights were extinguished each night. Among the passengers on the steam er were Airs. Horace Warden, one of the. principals in a romance which was the absorbing topic of discussion dur ing the voyage. Mrs. Warden is the 19-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. S. Easby Smith of Washington. Two days before the Minnewaska sailed the then Mrs. Smith married Horace War den, a lieutenant in the British royal medical corps. He left her to engage in service on the Belgian battle ground. She was a student in Brussels when the war began. George I). Smith, who was chairman of the American committee tn London which provided relief to so many Amer icans, said the committee listened to the troubles of from 3,000 to 10,000 Americans each day during its early work. "We received great assistance from all Englishmen with who we came in contact," he said. The Red Star steamer Lapland will sail from Southampton September 1 for New York with about 500 American tourists, it was announced by officials d'f the "line today. At the outbreak of the war this vessel was In drydock at Southampton. The closing of South ampton as a port kept her there, but the Red Star officials believe the em bargo on departing vessels will be lift ed to enable her to get away. ; : . o ; A 3,000-mile motorcycle pleasure trip is being made by B.

ENGLISH ART SALE NOT INTERRUPTED War Does Not Detract from Interest in Them LONDON, Aug. 22. The an sale. of the season have closed. Thp principal London vendors are happy about the past, but not about the fu ture, fortunately, however, they have already contracted to sell many important things toward the close of toe j ear, ana so the piesent disturb ances in Europe will not immediately affect their plans for the disposal vl u.l i oujecis. In thirty-seven sales since last Mm Sotheby's have made a total of $479,- ouu ana a few sales of which th prices are still under revision must bring the sum total well up to $050, 000. This amount has been given principally for books and manuscripts Pictures, of course, take an averagt of higher bidding, and at Christie's the twenty-five canvases which havt brought the biggest prices this yeai have realized $688,500. The most notable events in the lit erary market this season have been the sale of the Stevenson manu scripts and the sale of Nelson's Let ters to His Wife. The former wen quite fragmentary, except In a few cases, and got their value chiefly from being unpublished. The Nelson letters were also unpublished. Th prices given for these two items wen $9,420 for the Stevenson manuscripts and $11,000 for the Nelson letters, thf latter being extremely low for si unique a series of correspondence. Publishers of biographies, histori cal criticisms, and so on, are now beginning to feel the competitioi of the open art market. Professors of relics no longer go straight to the publishing firms, but approach the public through the art dealer. Thii naturally puts up the price of un published work all around. The most notable "event in the pic ture market this season has beer the sale of Titian's "Man With a Red Cap," for $88,250. There have been no phenomenal picture prices and the only important thing for con noisseurs to note is the high prices which French masters of the Barbi zon school, such as Corot, can now gain. There has been a slump ir Raeburns and in old English masters. o FRANCIS JOSEPH DYING SIR CECIL SPRING-RICE CONFERS WITH BRYAN ASSOCIATED PRESS DISrATCH Discusses Question of American Neutrality at Length ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH WASHINGTIN, Aug. 24. Sir Cecil Spring-Rice, the British ambassador, who has just returned from London, conferred at length with Secretary Bryan and Counselor Lansing on the general subject of American neutral ity. As the United States and Great Britain have been foremost in the development of the abstract princi ples of international law governing the obligations of neutrality, the Bri tish ambassador is particularly anxi ous that the United States continue the advanced position it has taken on the question of neutrality as a whole. Regarding principles of neutrality concerning contraband, uiocKaue rights of belligerent shipping and rights of neutrals to maintain strict impartiality in their treatment of war and commercial ships of a belligerent, it is the purpose of the British gov ernment, and it is understood of other belligerents, to request such neutral powers as the United States to deal with each question involving the application of neutrality, as a distinct legal proposition. tnis would eliminate diplomatic treatment of such questions, and soon would result in a standard and uniform ethod of dealing with delicate and difficult questions which could not be subject to challenge by any fair minded belligerent. o New show at.

The federal inquiry tnto the higher cost of food stuff since the war began in Europe has not developed that the increases were unwarranted, according to Roger B. Wood, United States assistant at torney in charge of the investigation. "I admit that the timeliness of our inquiry may have arrested a general upward movement of prices due to the greed of retailers and wholesalers" he said. "No evidence of conspiracies to force up the prices of food was disclosed which would warrant criminal proceed ure and generally speaking there was no unusual rise in food prices. There were increases in a few Commodities but some of these are dearer because of natural conditions." He said he found no abnormal sup ply of foodstuffs in storage in the warehouses which would indicate that dealers are storing to force up the price. o IN TOWN AFTER DARK Judge McBride in the .city, police court yes terday afternoon resurrected an al most obsolete ordinance whereby In dians not employed by residents of. the city are not permitted in Phoenix after dark.
