When the baseball team that calls
tllobe its home comes to Phoenix for
a three-same series Saturday and
Sunday, that smiling Tempeite" whom
we have missed like our long lost
brother will be here. Not since last
he trailed his good mitt in the dust
and scared the runner back to second
and then grabbed him off the sack
on a throw from Big Griffen, have
we observed that dazzling smile
merging from the clouds of pulver
ized baseball field. And this hap
pined many moons ago, when Tem
pi's name was one to ccejure with
in baseball circles.
The consummation of an agree
ment between Phonix and Globe for
ment between Phoenix and Globe for
Sunday happened yesterday afternoon
when Leo Togneri closed the deal
over the phone with Editor Hogue
of the Arizona Recond and Jack
Leonard, "damager" of the Globeites.
Some other arrangements that the
JJnest Japanese College Graduate
has made are for a game with Mesa,
at Mesa and for Mesa Thursday,, an
excursion from Hayden fov Labor

Motorbike Fuss Is Still On
Earl Cooper, that quiet, studious
looking little man, whose hand and
right foot are so potent when equipped
with steering wheel and, accelerator
pedal, will enter his private Stutz
peedster in the El Paso to Phoenix
read race.
G. Purdy Bullard, Phoenix's auto
Jtacing commisloner yesterday received
Cooper's application for entry into the
astern classic.
Cooper, who won the big Tacoma
race on July. Fourth, and is one of the
clpse knit coterie of Native sons, who
uphold the honor of the western driv
ers In every big race meet, is at once a
favorite In the El Paso race. Not only
is he a man of road racing nerve, but
he is possessed of some of the fastest
machinery in the road racing game.
. The, anto racing world was provoked
to quiet mirth a short time ago, by the
news that Cooper had bought his Stutz
outright, and that he had withdrawn
from the list of Harry Stutz's factory
idrivers. "So Cooper is going it alone?"
wondered the motor world. "Maybe
heUl make a fortune at it maybe."
Cooper's first act after signing hjs
check and taking possession of his car,
was to inquire about the El Paso race.
Verily, it looks as though he were
starting early to acquire that privately
owned fortune!

Year 1914 Distinguished by
Great Many Dickers The
Feds Had Something to
Do With It--All Teams
Strengthening Line-ups
NEW YORK, Aug. 25. The base
ball season of 1914 already noted as
a period of unusual occurrences in
the national sport, promises to es
tablish a record for the purchase and
exchange of players in the big
leagues. Omitting entirely any refer
ence to the sensational trades and
purchases which preceded the open
ing of the pennant races the present
season has been an exceptional one
in this respect. With the exception
of the world's champion Philadelphia
Athletics every club in both the
American and National leagues has
made unusual efforts toward
strengthening one or more depart
ments by means of exchange or cash
transactions. Not alone have the mi
nor association been invaded fov big
league clubs have dealt with each
other to an extent greater than has
been the case in other years.
In the American league Boston se
cured Egan, Shore and Ruth from
the Baltimore club of the Interna
tional; Hoblitzell from Cincinnati:
Vean Gregg from Cleveland in ex
change for Coombs, 'R. Johnsqn and
Egan, as well as several minor
league and college players. The Chi
cago White Sox have signed or re
leased to date an even dozen players,
not including Hal Chase; who jumped
to the Bftffalo Federals. The deal
ing, however, has been confined to
the minor and college class, although
Comiskey holds the present season
record in his purchase of Fielder
Felch from Milwaukee of the Amer
ican association at $12,000 cash and
two players.
The New York Americans have
purchased, . exchanged or releasel
sixteen players since April 14. Somf
of the big league mate.-ial secured
includes Catcher Nunamaker from
Boston American, Pitcher Carroll
Brown from the Athletics, in addition
to Birdie Cree from the .Baltimore
Internationals. Cleveland is another
club which has clipped deeply Into
the players' mart. Close to twenty
players have been bought, sold, ex
changed or lost by desevtion this
season. A majority of these trans
actions involved minor leagues, the
principal major league deal being
with the Boston Americans, whereby
Pitcher Vean Gregg went tq the Red
Sox in 'exchange for Pitcher Coombs,
and Johnson and Catcher Ben Egan.
Aside from the purchase of two
minor league players and the release
of Catcher Gibson the Detroit club
has stood pat to date and the same
may be said of Clark Griffith's
Washington combination. The capi
tal club purchased Outfielder Mike
Mitchell from the Pittsburg Nation
als, released Pitchers Collier and
Cashion and secured J. E. Blair from
the Martins, W. Va., club. The St.
Louis Browns released two players
and purchased one for future de
livery. Far more activity in this direction
has " been shown in the . National
league. The Cincinnati club record
shows that close to thirty players
have figured in one way or another
in club deals or jumped to the Fed
eral league. Claude Derrick - was
bought from Baltimore and then
traded to Chicago for First Baseman
Hollowitz. Hoblitzel went to the
Boston Americans and Tex Erwin
trom Brooklyn to Cincinnati and
back again. Bert Daniels, former
Yankee and part of Jack Dunn's
$60,000 Baltimore International league
assets, found his way to the Cin
cinnati club, to say nothing of a
number of minor league and college
Pittsburg scouts, too, have been
busy and the - Pirates have thirteen
deals of one kind or another to their
credit. Aside from the deal with the
Washington club, whereby Mike
Mitchell was sold, the transactions
Involved the purchase or release of
players from or to minor leagues.
The Philadelphia Nationals have ten
transactions on record, the principal
one being the trade of Gosh Devore
to Boston for Third Baseman John
Martin. Boston records show some
thirteen deals, the major transfers
including the sale of George Beck to
the Cleveland Americans; the trad
ing of Hub Perdue to St. Louis for
players Whitted and Cather and Josh
Devore'8 acquisition for John Martin.
The Chicago Cubs have eleven
transactions in the record. Elimi
nating the minor league purchases
and releases the schedule shows that
Pitcher Koestner was sold to Cin
cinnati and First Baseman Mollowitz
traded to the same club for Claude
Derrick. The St. Louis Cardinals
have held fairly steady to the early
season enrollment. Hageman was
sold to the Chicago Nationals and
Whited and Cather traded to Boston
for Pitcher .Perdue. The other deal3
Involved minor league players.
The New York Giants have a list
of thh-teen players signed or released
this season, but not in a single case
does another major league club fig
ure in the dealing. - Brooklyn's prin
cipal efforts in this direction Include
the sale of Kraft to Boston; Riggert
to St. Louis; Erwin to Cincinnati,
and Smith to Boston.

Man Whose Horse Was
Stolen, Precipitating Ray
Killings, Believes Motive
Was One of Revenge on
Officer Phin Brown
Intense reeret at the chain of
crimes that have saddened Pinal j
wuhij, wan eApiettseu uy lviuse is.
Lufty, in an interview for The Re
publican yesterday. Rather than see
Phin Brown killed, Mr. Lufty said
he would gladly have given Pete
Smith the horse, the stealing of
which started the trouble. But a
more significant fact than any of
"I firmly believe that the theft of
my black mare was but an excuse
to draw Brown into the power of
the outlaws. Smitli, I understand,
had had trouble with Brown, and had
threatened to kill him. The theft,
therefore, was only a blind."
Mr. Lufty arrived from Ray ' yes
terday, and gave to a Republican re
porter, the first direct version of the
deplorable affair, that has been al
lowed any newspaper. He commend
ed The Republican's accurate chron
icling of the events.
'It was at six o'clock of the even
ing of August 18 that I went out, to
a tree near my place to care for the
horse. The horse was missing. I
looked for her, and finding a trail
leading toward Devil's Canyon, took
occasion to see Mr. Brown. Brown
went to the tree and inspected the
trail. He said he would investigate,
and asked me to phone the Gibson
mines and Miami to be on the look
out. He then went up the canyon,
and returned to me about 9 o'clock.
He said: "
" 'I'll get that horse before dark to
morrow evening. I ound out about
this case. I'll bet a Stetson hat, I
get the horse and the thief."
"At six ' o'clock the next morning
he left to follow up the thief. About
eleven, Mr. Lakel rode Into Ray and
said that after ten o'clock, near Pete
Smith's camp, he had heard a lot
of shooting. He also" saw a Mexican
riding wildly away from the scene.
He knew something was doing, and
so came to Ray to report it. The
posse was then formed, and started
in immediate pursuit, with the re
sults "you have already reported.
"Brown was .warned on the way.
out after Smith that the Mexican
had stated, 'I will kill him if he
tries to get me.' Quite naturally,
Brown would not show the white
feather, after a statement like this,
so he would not turn back. Landry,
the young French boy was at a wa
tering place a few miles from the
town. He had seen the Mexicans
lead the horse past, the night before
and for that reason, he accompanied
the officer to identify the thieves.
"It was evident the bandits am
bushed Brown and Landry.
"This happened at the regular
camp headquarters of the Mexicans
Mr. Lufty's statement throws some
light on the situation, inasmuch as
it confirms the suspicion expressed
In this paper that the affair was not
merely the attempt to increase the
woodcutters' herds, but to promote a
struggle with the officer, whom they
all hated.

Rafael Casares Applies for Papers,
And When He Fails to Get Job
Wants His Money Back
Although Rafael Casares was not
able to 'ketchum job," he didn't get
his dollar back from Assitant Clerk
Dob Wells of the U. S. district court.
And thereby hangs a tale of the
Mexican's, disappointment, and his
probable bitter resentment at these
good United States.
On Monday, August 17, Rafael Ca
sares, a Mexican of Mexico, and not
yet able 'to decipher English or even
write his own name, approached the
U. S. clerk's office and inquired for
the man who would make-y heem

application blank, filled out in de
tail even to the fact of his monocu
larness Ralph is one-eyed. .
The application was accepted along
with one dollar.
Yesterday Ralph approached the
same clerk's office and demanded his
dollar back.

Webb explained that many cases
similar to this one come up in natu
ralization applications. It is known
to the aliens that they are not per
mitted to work even as laborers on
any public job, or on any contract
job. It is against the law. So. they
apply- for citizenship, spend one sil
ver dollar, and become eligible to the
business end of a pick or shovel.
They consider the sjgned application
as a sort of recommendation.
Casares had been told by an inter

made in good faith, but this did not
