THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN, MONDAY MORNING, MARCH 29, 1915 EAGE FIVE BUILBHMG APPEARAHCE OF WASHINGTON CHANGES WITH NEW FRONTS Notwithstanding no permits for Mruetnrea of large value have been recently issued from the office of Building Inspector Herbert J. Mann, there is no dearth of building opera tions in Phoenix at the present time. In many respects the permits recent ly grunted are the first step in op erations that w'hen completed will have materially changed the appearance of the down town district. From Third street to Third avenue on Washington St., there are probably a ccore of stores that will be so materially changed, as far as outward appearance is con cerned, as to be hardly recognizable. Important among these are the changes now carried out in the Wash ington street front and the Central avenue side of the Central Drug Store in the (Joodrich block. The entile outer walls are to be practically removed and what is known as the Kavvner Store Front System installed. This al teration is to extend also to the quar ters that for so many years were oc cupied by the Wellington saloon. When completed the Central Drug Store will Tonto Basin Promises To Become Another Coalinga Oil Field The Miami Oil and Development company, having complied with all the requirements of the law, will immediately commence operations in the Tonto Basin Oil Fields. The company is composed nrinci pally of the business men of Phoe nix, and other cities of Arizona who have preceived from the first that a discovery of oil in the Jloose velt district means a much needed impetus to every line of business in the state; in fact millions of capital will at once be invested here and Arizona will pulsate with prosperity. The Tono Hasin Oil Fields have been compared very favorably to the Coalinga fields of California; and but a short time will lapse now, in their opinion, when the history of California's great oil field will be repeated. On the 20th of January, the Tonto Hasin Oil company now operating near Roosevelt, reported a discov ery of both oil and gas; this fact proves that the vicinity of their well there is a deposit of oil. The Miami Oil and Development company has acquired what is look ed upon as the cream of the oil bearing land at Roosevelt, and iw ing to the discovery of the company now operating there, this proposition carries with it much merit. Oil in the Tonto Basin means new cities, new railroads, new industries and prosperity, especially for I'hoe nix. The operations of the Miami Oil and Development company will be watched with much interest by all those interested in the welfare of the state. ' The company is parctically financ ial and but a small portion of the capital stock will be offered to tl'e public at 12 Vic ler share. A small investment in this com pany may make you independent. All communications should be ad dressed to the Miami Oil nnd De velopment Company, 1.18 Xorth First Avenue, I'hoenix.

Because your feet are never, never going to bother or make you limp any more. have one of the handsomest systems of window displays in the city. It will afford abundant opportunity for The showing of goods. Incidentally the in terior is also receiving considerable at tention until th'e entire place will be most modern. The Wellington quarters are having a modern plate glass front and when completed will afford room for a mer cantile concern of good proportions. Another change being carried out is in the old Hartford Bank block at Wall and Washington streets. Here the entire front has been torn out, an in terior staircase constructed and a base ment dug. This will also be transform ed into a modern business house. The Casino Saloon has been reconstructed aod is now occupied by Harry John son with one of the finest pool and billiard halls in thei southwest. Quar ters are also provided here for a mod ern soda fountain, a cigar store and a bootblack stand. The store room in the block at Sec ond street and Washington, formerly the Hans Herlick saloon, has been re modelled and now houses a barber shop a pool and billiard hall and a barber shop. The entire Thalheimer block, froii Third to Fourth streets on Washington is to be completed for the purposes of the new Public Market and a drug storet a grocery store, and meat mar ket installed, besides 162 stalls for in dividual proprietors. Work ici being rushed on the Jones block and it is expected that most of the tenants will be reinstalled within three or four weeks. The Busy Drug Store proprietors expect to be in their new quarters before the first of May, as do also Gass Bros. The Walker building is also being carried rapidly to completion, although the cement eonstrution and the fact 'that this is a two story building as compared with a one-story structure as in the case of the Jones property, makes fhe work less rapid. Altogether Washington street is un dergoing many changes and it will not be long before it will present as nobby an appearance an most of the city lots after the clean up work of Saturday. o I AMUSEMENTS 1 "GIRLS," FITCH, REDMOND AND THE COLUMBIA Tonight Ed Redmond will stage at the Columbia, the best comedy Clyde I-itch gave to the stage. "Girls.", Its title is so misleading that it might be taken for a so-called musical show. On the other hand it is a legitimate comedy with one of the funniest plots ever written into a I'lay. A girl, who is a man hater, induces two other girls to take up her belief that all men are. bad, and the three after being discharged from the same firm for treating men rude take up life in a flat and the situations that tumble out of the attempts of the three to ignore mm, suppiy one of the best stage stories of the decade. . Of course Clyde Fitch added to the story with his wonderful knowledge of women, .but the original idea is in itself a scream r.nd with the staging it Jias received at the hands of Mr. Redmond and his crew it will be waited by those who know the comedy but have never had a chance to see it. This play has made several of our best known actors for there are so many good parts in it that it has been the means of calling attention by reason of tho lines to the art of half dozen different individuals who have been seen "In the several char acters. Aside from the legitimate lies, the disrobing scene where the three mar: haters go to bed in their flat is the piece de resistence. Of course all of the girls are soon er or later inoculated with the love germ and all marry, but that is an other story. You must see "Girls" to get the real worth of the yarn, for its charm is not in the telling but in the situations that make up the play. MARY PICKFiO IS AT Mary Pickford. That magic name. Micf.s Plckford's next appearance in Phonlx will be in a repeater of the "Bishop's Carriage" the Paramount movie that made such a hit here some months ago. Hairy N'ace of the Ari zona is booking the gireat feature back at the request of many patrons, who want to see Miss Pickford in every photoplay she works in. The picture will be shown tonight and tomorrow night. Empress Monday and Tuesday will see Ro maine Fielding, again at the Empress in "All For Love." While these are small pictures, we are assured that in the near future some of his greatest productions will be shown at the home of Fielding pictures. These nights have constantly grown in pop ularity and all are looking forward to these treats, and to the time when pictures made in Phoenix will appear. In connection with this will be shown a Klaw and Erlanger in three parts, "The Charity Ball." This pic ture shows a complication of a couple of love affairs, in which are the usual brokeif promises and correspond ing heart-aehs, but finally fate re veals to them all that they have been misled and a happy understanding is at last reached. Also another good comedy, making a fine six-reel pro gram for the evening. BREESE'S STUNT IN WALLS OF JERICHO One of the startling scenes in the "Walla oi Jericho" which is shown at the Lamara for the last time today, shows Edmund Breese, as .rack Fro bisher, when he jumps from the back of a runp.ing mustang to the platform of a moving train, in order to get back to that effete east from which he ori ginally came. This is one of the most sensational feats ever performed for the silent drama, and that Edmund Breese looked upon heretofore as a dignified part maker should essay it, adds to its attractions. This is not the only interesting thing about the story however. Playgoers will remember that James K. Hackett starred in this play of Alfred Sutor's and made a name for himself. The support in this piece is very strong, making the film story itself one of the best that has ever been seen here and a splendid opener for the great Box Office attraction company. Coliseum Maids and Men The Coliseum Theatre is offering for Monday, Tuesday and Wednes day a radical but mast entertaining change of program. The Ellis Musi cal comedy company, under the able management of Earl Hall, will "tage a "black and white" affair that will be labeled "Minstrel Maids and Men." Patrons of the Coliseum have been anxious to see Messrs Hall and Vack do a black face stunt and as - 'Min strel Maids and Men" will give these two popular comedians a chance to demonstrate what real black face stuff really is, th management has arranged for its production just to please Coliseum patrons. Eddie Young will have the opportunity to show Phoenix theatre goers waht a real "sure miff' buck and wing dancer can do. Mr. Young is recognized s one of the foremost exponents of "buck and wing" dancing. Alice Lewis, dainty soubrette will not show in black face, but she will show what goes to make a minstrel show a success. Flo LaBadie at Lion Theatre Today Florence LaBadie the popular Than- hauser actress plays the leading part in "Finger Prints of Fate" a two reel drama with a surprise at the end by a rather arbitrary twist given to the action. Its heroine is a rich man's daughter and the hero, his secretary and her fiancee. This picture has many pretty scenes and asa whole is a sp lendid offering. The Lion also shows today a comedy-drama from the Beau ty Studios featuring Virginia Kirtley and named "Which would von Rather Be" married felicity vs bachelor way wardness and the tendency of the lat ter toward carelessness and selfishness in iiie is the point which is driven home. Virginia Kirtley has taken Margarita Fischer's place with the c.i. ty playcr-i n i .' i.iing quite & number at the Lion today is a Key- tone called "His Second Childhood" and is very funny and winds up a mighty good program. o Chandler News Notes CHANDLER WILL HAVE A CREAM ERY At a well attended mass meeting of farmers and business men held in the ChandlerChamber of Commerce room on Saturda.y afternoon! a working plan for building and operating a combined creamery, cold storage and ice plant was agreed upon between S. V. R. Mal colm, J. O. Sexson and L. G. Wilson, promoters and investors and the farm ers of the district. For a week a committee consisting of Geo. H. Sturgeon, E- W. Monroe, W. S. White, Dr. A J. Chandler, W. S. Davis of Chandler and Dr. Rowell of Gilbert have been working with the promoters of the enterprise for build ing and operating the plant that would be satisfactory to both sides. At tho mass meeting held Saturday, Mr. Sturgeon reported that an agree ment had been concluded. That the creamery was to take the milk and cream from the farmers paying them therefor Los Angeles prices of butter fat, less transportation charges for butter; that the affairs of the cream ery were to be conducted by a board of five directors, two to represent the farmers, two for the promoters and the fifth to be a disinterested man selected by the other directors. The man sug gested to fill this position for the first year was Lloyd B. Christy of the Cen tral Bank of Phoenix, provided he would accept. The promoters agreed also, to com mence building the creamery within sixty days and have it completed within six months. A company will be form ed and incorporated this week, half of the stock will be owned by the farm ers and merchants of the district, and the other, half by the promoters. The plant, it is estimated will cost in the neighborhood ol" 115,000. It is expected Cm CLEANED OP SATURDAY VA'f Campaign Comes to Close With Many (Jood; Results Lots Long Un-' acquainted With Rake,' (Jiven New Appearance j "Clean Up" was the slogan of Phoenix Saturday. The big campaign inaugurated by the Republican, passed with results far exceeding the hopes of the promoters. Everywhere both in the business and residental sec tion, could be seen bands of men, ind companies of boy scouts busily at work cleaning up the weeds and c'.eb ris from vacant lots, clearing t'Te tin cans from alleys and generally making a big effort to make Phojnix the cleanest town in the state. Vacant spots arount the city that had long enjoyed immunity were in vaded and made to have a changed appearance. The sanctity of num berless piles of tin cans, was shat tered and fhey were ruthlessly piled on wagons and carted away beyond j longer making an eye-sore for jass- ing citizens. In addition to the paid and volun teer workers, the city put out gangs of men cleaning up places that had been refused admittance to the select list. In such cases, the charge of cleaning the lots will be placed against the property and collected as taxes. The theaters of the city, came to the aid of the campaign, many of them donating a certain portion of one night's receipts to the fund. Man ager Art Ricks of the Columbia, gave over one night, to the Bov Scouts who took charge of the tick ets, selling them around the city thus adding considerably to the gen eral fund. Co-operation from all walks of life was given.' Busy men of affairs -who had not time to come out and work, donated enough cash to hire some non-employed man to put in a day's work, thus benefiting the city and al so the unfortunate. Supply houses handling various clean up appurtenances, had a record week preceding the real clean up day. Soap and cleaning compounds were sold as they have never been be fore. Painters were also busy plying the brush to places long unacquainted with paint. that the cold storage plant will handle meat for the new slaughter house and also take care of eggs and other f.'.rm products of the district. All buildings and equipment will be let on competitive bid. STURGEON ELECTED SCHOOL TRUSTEE In a most amicable school election Geo. H. Sturgeon won fiver Orin Hol dren by a vote of 123 -to 52. Both are men of the highest integrity and prom inent in the community. Mr. Sturgeon is a leading farmer of the district, pre sident of the farmers union and a man of sound business judgment. He was chaiiman of the committee wTiich set tled the differences between the pro moters and farmers in organizing the new creamery, and much credit is due him that a satisfactory agreement was reached. A new high school will doubt less be built during Mr. Sturgeon's term of office and other improvements made in the local schools. The dis trict couldn't have a better man on the job. A PRETTY LUNCHEON Mrs. W. G. Barackman was hostess at a very pretty luneheh at her home southwest of Chandler on Wednesday last.
