This 'killing time' busi ness often turns out to lie a man killing business, idleness is a curse on the border; It is always a curse.

'There is much to be said about the social and moral conditions and something ought to be done; but I am axious to Impress this one need of reading matter upon the people. "The men look fine, they are doing less complaining and criticising than they did a month ago. There is a general feeling that they will be sent home in a few weeks. "Quite a chance may be noticed In the complexion of the eastern men.

Ir. W. f. Sims, of Hisbee, president of the senate In the last legislature. The doctor, who hap pened to he in town, drove out to Clendale out of curiosity. Governor Hunt was the first speaker: His re marks were lurKely directed to the mihject of the mine tax bill of the liutt session and to the sohlect of the school tax in which he made the statement that if ' she appropriations for the school had been permitted to stand i made by the senate, this county would have been the loser by $31 .000. If the governor had been speaking t t'ochlse county, he would have been obliged by the same process of reason ing to show tlffil the senate appropria tions would have saved that county I I4.1.0U0. The next speaker was Hon. T. T. t'owers. the floor leader of the house in the last session. He made the statement that the senate had held up the land bill until the last day of the session. He also repented certain statements made in a recent issue of1 Uunbar's Weekly in which Ir. tjima. Dr. Bacon and other members of the senate had been represented to say things that amounted to confessions of evil intent. It was at this Juncture that Dr. Hlms made his presence known. He asked Mr. Powers to tell the audience who he was, and when that had l-en done Dr. Sims said that the statement made by Mr. Powers with reference to the al leged utterances by him was unquali fiedly false. As to the land bill, he asked Mr. Powers if it was not a fact that the house hud considered. the land bill for three weeks and that the sen ate had retained it for only three days Mr. Powers replied that he believed that that was so but he added that the senate already bad vonked up its amendments Vi it and had them ready to annex. , . After some further colloquy. Dr. Sims said that If he could be assured of fair treatment, he would like to meet Mr. Powers at (Jlendale tonight to discuss the issues of the campaign. Mr. Pow ers said that he would accept the chal lenge, whereupon the chairman of the meeting remarked that Dr. Sims would be heard there, provided he did not ap pear with a "copper muzzle on him, a rather gratuitous insult that had no real bearing on the campaign. Dr. Sims expected that Mr. Powers Phoenix, Ariz6na would call upon him in the course of the morning to arrange the details of the debate, waited about the Hotelj Adams until . nearly noon when he' called up Mr. Puwvs at his residence. He was not there but Dr. Sims learned that he was at the of 1 ice of I. D. Sham hart. Calling at that office. Dr. Sims was informed that Mr. Powers had been unable to meet him but had delegated Mr. Shamhart to arrange for the de bate. The doctor found that Mr. powers had proposed the following subject: "Resolved, that the Bacon mine tax bill, passed by the senate of the second legislature, is inexcusable, and if ea acted. would have been unfair to the owner of other taxable .property in the state." Dr. Sims expressed some surprise thiit Mr hna-nr. ha.l r., .... ' take up tne issues of the civil war at Clendale tonight. The mine tax biH of the second legislature having failed to become a law, he believed was not an issue of the present campaign and has no more to do with it than a bird's nest of last year. He therefore pro posed another subject: "Uesolved. That the continuation of tlovernor Hunt's policies would be detrimental . to the best interests of Arizona." Speaking of the mine tax bill. Dr. Sims said last night that if that could be In any way identified with the cam paign he vsvuld be glad to meet Mr. Powers on that issue and would be prepared to show that the last clause of the proosltion as suggested by Mr. Powers would be a reflection upon the members of the tax commission. f2 aw t3 These Are Remnant Days Remnants of DRESS GOODS WOOLENS' AND SILKS Way Below the Former Low Prices Wool serges, poplin, gabardines and fanr-y mixtures.

ABDUCTS TURTLE L J L The abduction of a full grown turtle, the pet of the attaches of the Lion theater, and incidentally a living ad vertising medium for the popular mov ing picture house, landed Haymondo Soreno In the city Jail for a brief time yesterday afternoon. Only his promise to restore the turtle to his rightful place in front of the Lion theater, or Bumping the Jolts in Fenix ... ... - . Washington Street Canyon Pretty Bad oh for Reinlik! Standing at the corner of Wash ington and Central avenue yesterday, citizen and a taxpayer (one lierson) observed the automobiles, trucks, motoeyclea and other vehicles bump the humps where the car trucks are and tome (giving ought to .be, and at the cad at half an hour of this diversion, said , that Coney-" Island hart nothing on It. In beliaif of those who have to drive or ride across the gulch in the Washington street paving. The Re publican U offering, tliis morning, a wagon load of tunbark, cinders, gravel or caliche any material that may in some degree soften the jolt on I'hoenix'r chief corner. Without some such public apirited offer, the city and the citizens would probably continue suffering one from anchy losis of the duty department and the other from fracture of the good rsture fnint. Apparently neither will take the initiative, offer a little aff able criticism ;r a few hundred weight of paving material Ao remedy this condition. The main stem is not (he only thor oughfare through which the street car traffic has worn grand canyon. There is hardly a foot of pavement along anv street car line, that is as wll joined as it should be. Once, The P.epubllcan reported the breakln gof the back nxle of a tour ist s automobile on the street car crossing at Adams and 'first streets. The cilv got busy that day and dumped a bit of goo in the hole and made an almost passable crossing. Perhaps the recitation of a few hard knock stories would again stimulute some Interest in making streets good. The hot weather is over and consti tutes no excuse for further delay in working some of the men and mules in the street department. A double exposure of blue nnl white street signs at Second and Adams streets fas been a potential menace to the street department for several weeks. The chap who writes to the editor ought to have taken the mat'.er In hand with a string of words relating to extravagance. Rut that fellow Is probably on his vaca tion. Another instance the remains of a iuttins sidewalk on Monroe street, near the St. Alary' h church. This is a beautiful example of a thing that shouldn't be. Not especially decora tive, and possibly, dangerous to, say a bicycle rider on a dark evening. Anywav, if, one enn't stand the Jar of crossing Washington street, one can drive one's motor car in a northerly direction and a lofty man ner soon, because of the payment that's soon to be on the boulevard. to at least procure another turtle that couldn't be distinguished from the I original secured his Teieaae. Kor some time the big turtle has j paraded up and. down in front of the 1 Lion. I pon its back would be painted I the title of the feature film then being j shown. Yesterday, "Wasted Years. Lion Theater," was the motto gracing its shell. - . Comes young Serano with a lust for turtles stronger than his judgment. And shortly thereafter the chelonian disappeared. Suspicion attached to Serano and he was apprehended soon ater. ''Jie admitted be had taken the turtle to the ice factory and there washed the sign from his back. And then the turtle disappeared. Serano thought he could locate his troublesome booty. He knew he could get another one equally as good. Upon his prom ise to restore the original turtle or pro cure another that would answer the purpose to which it had been put, he was' set at liberty.
