ability to eat powder on the Polk street
grounds. Also, Policeman Duncan,

of the midnight tactics, experienced the
unique sensations of being openly and

It happened in this wise. Company
A patrol, being the young members of
the company recently formed here, was
forced to conduct its drill in the Polk
street grounds because the auto show
is pretty well tilling the armory. Part
of the tactics consisted in guarding the
fort, and -as the attacking force sought
to sneak through the lines and build
its bivouac among the heaps of dead
enemies, a householder nearby became
convinced that all the burglars in the
world were mobilizing against the
peaceful neighborhood. He phoned to
the sheriff for assistance, and then be
coming imp iticut, uncorked a perfectly
good .32 Colt into the air over the

ence to house bill 81. Governor Hunt
yesterday sent a statement to the
secretary of state relative to the ir
regularity which marked the pasasge
of that measure.
The bill, which provides for the
sinking of an artesian well near
"Franklin, Greenlee county. passed
both branches of the legislature, but
was amended in the senate so as to
require the investigation of the state
land commission before any money
could be spent. When the bill came
up for third reading, the amendment
for some reason or other was not in
corporated in it, and the bill wa re
turned to the house minus the sen
ate amendment. In the governor's
fetter he states that if knowledge of
this irregularity had not come to him
his action on the measure might have
been different. As it was, the bill
was transmitted to the secretary of
state without the executive's signa
ture. o

last Saturday. It was an eventful trip
seven miles from Tucson the front
forks broke. He took them off, walked
to Tucson, got a new pair walked back
put them on his wheel, and rode to the
city. He returned Sunday. Twenty
two miles out of the ancient and hon
orable pueblo, the new forks broke. He
turned around and walked to the city
i nd had them repaired, walked to the,
cycle, replaced them and roue to
Chandler. Wayne sys the walking
and the scenery for the first score of
miles this side of Tucson are unequall

also planning on a non-stop walk
across the continent. He says be knows
he can do it if some one will only give
him a pair of motorcycle forks to carry.
