Ws. E. X. Phillips, general secretary
of the Young Women's Christian As
sociation returned yesterday from a
month's vacation spent at the Califor
nia resorts, which included naturally
San Francisco and the beach towns,
Monterey, the far, famed Valley of the
Moon, which has recently been the
scene of taking the motion picture
dramatization of Jack London's novel
o the same name, and Los Angeles.
During her absence Mis. Phillips at
tended the secretary's conference of the
Y. W. C. A. which was held near Pa
cific Grove. There were in attendance
here a number of the more prominent
workers in the Y. W. throughout the
United States, and the conferences took
the nature of extension work largely
for employed officers.
The work of the local Y. W. will
ntiw take on added impetus with the
return of the popular and efficient gen
eral secretary. The fall 'gym' classes
are to be inaugurated shortly registra
tions for the same beginning about the
middle of the month. ' The classes
themselves will open about October 1.
.. A number of other activities will be
started among which will be a girls'
employment bureau, the noon lunches
and the down town rest ropm. Sunday
afternoon vesper services will re-open
in the very near future. The asso
ciation looks for a most successful fall
and winter's work.

had gained such headway that there
v. as little for the firemen to do but
extinguish the flames which com
pletely enveloped the structure and
to prntoct surrounding property.
The ringing of the Central school
tell was the first intimation the fire
men had that a fire was in progress.
A ' minute later somebody telephoned
that a building was burning in the
300 block on Xovth Third avenue.
Box 25 was' sounded and the firemen
made a quick run to the scene of
the blaze. It is estimated that the
loss will probably mount into several
thousand dollars, as little, if any
thing, was saved. The building and
contents' were insured.
The irony of fate figured in the
fire of last evening, for only the
day before, word was received here
that Kunselman and Lee, Who had
arrived at the Shebit Indian agency,
twelve miles from St. George, Utah,
and 100 mileS f.-om a railroad, had
suffered . the loss of their car which
had been burned. They were forced
to make other arrangements to reach
civilization. :
The contract for hauling, the gravel
to be used on the Glendale road was
let yesterday at the office of the state
engineer and the work of transporting
material will begin today. J. D. Lee of
Phoenix was the successful bidder for
this part of the work.
In ail 12,000 cubic yards of gravel
will be distributed along the road In
readiness for the actual work of road
building. Of this amount 200 yards will
be hauled from south of the city, and
the remainder brought in by rail, prob
ably from the vicinity of Tempe.
Preliminary survey work on the road
to the Sugar City was completed some
time ago," and as soon as the material
for the tweHly odd culverts is received
and the gravel distributed, actual con
struction work Will ' be begun.
For some days past it has been
rumored that the mysterious Mr.
Raffles has been seen in Phoenix.
Yesterday's developments made these
rumors a certainty, for the light
fingered gentleman was' seen by a
number of different people and is
known to be operating in this vicin
ity. Raffles is one of the most in
teresting characters to be found in
this country. A born criminal, he is
absolutely harmless and purloins
things more for the excitement of
eluding capture than for any actual
value he gets from the results of his
A man who claims that he saw
him last evening was acquainted
withxhim in the east, and states that
he cannot be mistaken. He was in
the northern part of town, wearing
a gray suit and apparently had on a
black eye mask or large black
glasses. If it really is Raffles there
is a merry chase ahead for profes
sional and amateur detectives, for
he is always careful to leave a sem
blance of a trail after his operations
and takes care that the police are
made aware of it and then matches
his wits against theirs in the pursuit
that invariably follows.

The Arizona Republican
A most unaccomodating thief visited
the home of Dr. D. L. Connor, west of
town Tuesday evening,, not being satis
fied with taking what he could fin?
in the house, he took also with him the
key to the house leaving the doctor
cruelly locked outside. In addition to
this inconvenience Dr. Connor is out a
gold watch, and many other things of
value as a result of the impolite visit.
For some time past Dr. Connor has
been in the habit of leaving the key to
his house at a certain place, in hiding
in fact, and since Mrs. Connor and the
family are spending the vacation at
Long Beach, the house is often left
without anyone there for some hours
during the doctor's business engage
ments down town.
Whoever the thief was, he knew
where the key was hidden, and pro
ceeded to help himself, getting into the
house committing the depredations
complained of and following that up by
taking the key off with him. When Dr.
Connor got back home he couldn't get
within. Then followed the investiga
tion and the discovery of the theft".
"The Show Girl's Glove," the sec
ond picture of the Alice Joyce se
ries of pictures that is being pro
duced by the great Kalem company
and which are being shown at the
Lamara theater exclusively, will be
shown there today and tomorrow.
The success which has attended
these pictures in other parts of the
United States should draw heavily
upon the numbers of the movie fans
of the town and the theater com
fortable, which is the Lamara, ought
to be crowded to capacity all day to
day and tomorrow.
In this absorbing drama, Miss
Joyce portrays the role of a wife
who runs down- the perpetrator of a
crime for which her husband faces
the gallows. " According to the story,
Dick Hampton breaks his engage
ment with Stella Desmond, a show
girl, when he makes some discov
eries concerning her past. Pretend
ing she is about to commit suicide,
the . girl raises a knife. Dick seizes
her hand and in the struggle is ac
cidentally killed. " Stella contrives to
have suspicion fall upon John, the
murdered boy's brother, whom she
hates. John is .. arrested. Mrs.
Hampton visits the : scene of the
crime and finds a woman's glove.
A girl whom she has befriended sees
the glove and informs Mrs. Hamp
ton that her father, a ragpicker, has
brought home a similar glove. Mrs.
Hampton is led to suspect Stella and
manages to secure a position as the
show girl's maid. While thus em
ployed, she arrange a denouement
To the Voters of Arizona:
Having an intimate knowledge of the many benefits derived
by the business men, manufacturers and people generally of Ari
zona, from the services of F. A. Jones on the Arizona Corporation
Commission and as a member of this organization, the members
of the Maricopa County Commercial Club have unanimously de
cided to appeal to the people of the state in Mr. Jones' behalf.
It was only at the earnest solicitation of hundreds of resi
dents of the state that Mr. Jones decided to enter the contest for
renomination on the democratic ticket for the position he now
holds. His announcement was made at a late date, and for this
reason has not received as much publicity throughout the state
as it would had he presented his name earlier. ; ,
In all parts of the west Mr. Jones is recognized as one of the
country's ablest traffic experts. Possessing as he does a full
knowledge of rate-making and the many intricate points involv
ed, he has proved of inestimable value to the people of the state
as a member of the Corporation Commission. So much has been
accomplished for the direct benefit of the people by the activities
of Mr. Jones as a member of the Commission that we feel it would
be a gross oversight on the part of our people to fail to nominate
him at the coming primary election.
The Maricopa County Commercial Club is not a political or
ganization; neither is it the personal political machine of any
man or set of men. The Club was organized some years ago for
the purpose of doing everything possible to secure better and
more equitable freight rates for the people of Arizona. With
the able assistance of Mr. Jones we have succeeded to some ex
tnt, and feel that only by his retention on the commission can
the work thus begun be carried to a successful issue. Our Club
has kept in close touch with all matters pertaining to freight reg
ulation in Arizona. We know of the splendid work done by Mr.
Jones and feel it is a duty we owe, both to him and to the people,
to advise the voters of Arizona of the many things he has accom
plished that have been of direct benefit to every man, woman and
child in the state.
' In justice to Mr. Jones, we have decided to conduct a news
paper publicity campaign, setting forth numerous concrete exam
ples of savings of thousands of dollars made to the people-by his
tireless efforts. It is but the object of the present letter to place
Mr. Jones' name before the people as a candidate for nomination
for Corporation Commissioner. In subsequent articles we will
present facts and figures to bear out the statements we have
made herein in his behalf.

W. L. Pinney, Secretary.
