PAGE EIGHT THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN, FRIDAY MORNING, JUNE 8, 1917 LKTON ASKS INSTRUCTION IN MDLQKAfJ CASES i't'oits of State Officers Fail to Convince Sect Colonized Near Glendale That It Must Register A request for instructions as to what procedure is to be followed ly local fiitvcrnment officials in dealing with the Molokans who have so far refused to register under the selective draft order, was made by Assistant United Stales Attorney J. H. Lansston in a telegram to the department of justice at Washington yesterday afternoon. At a late hour last evening, no reply had been received. Although Assistant United States At torney Langston would make no state ment yesterday afternoon as to what he deemed most likely to follow, it is lulieved here that instructions from Washington will lead to the arrest of the persons refusing to comply with the order. It is expected that instruc tions from Washington will reach the local official early this morning, and that action will immediately follow. In making his report to Washington, Mr. Langston gave all details of the situation which he collected during the two days of his investigation. He also made a lengthly report of the confer ence at the state house yesterday morning and the evident failure of of ficials and others to change the atti tude of the committee of Russians who represented the Molokan settlements. It is thought by many who are in close touch with the situation that the government officials at Washington will defer action against the Russians until after a conference of one of the representatives with President Wilson at Washington within the next day or Officials Plead in Vain The Molokans living in the two colo nies near Glendale will not register in . i-iniiancp with the selective draft registration regulations issued by the jo.,ernmeut. Their :e:igious precepts, they said, forbade them to do even -hit much in the military preparations now being made in this country. And, ot-Mdes. i.ncie Sam might not keep his word to exempt them from military service. Russia had deceived them, the Molo kans said, and had attempted to force them into the army against their will, hence their immigration to the United States, a free and unrestricted country, they had been told. Now they fear that their unfortunate experience is to be tepeated. Patient hearing and careful explana tion on the part of Governor Campbell, Chairman Heard of the Arizona Coun cil of Defense. Colonel Breen and others were fruitless. The Molokans stubbornly repeated that they would not register. They then departed, and the matter was placed in the hands of J. H. Langston. assistant United States district attorney, who will take further action, following instructions frnm Washington. The second attempt to induce the Molokans to register, according to law, was made, yesterday morning at !) 'lock at the state house. Mike J'ivovaroff, priest and head of the col onies southwest of Glei'daie, is on his way to Washington to place their case before President Wilson. In his ab r"nce he whs represented by Lukian Conovaloff, V. R. Kalikoff and John Tomacboff. There were also present I Governor Campbell, Dwight B. Heard chairman of the Arizona Council of liefense; Colonel Freu S. Breen, state disbursing officer for the selective draft registration; J. H. Langston. as sistant United States district attorney and Dr. J. C. Norton, member of the council ind intimate friend of the Molokan leaders. Explanation is Clear The matter of registration was made plain to the Russians present by Gov ernor Campbell and others. However, no apparent impression was made up on them. They claimed that they did not believe, according to their religion, in subscribing their names to any thing that pertained to war in any manner whatsoever, even refusing to claim exemption, as the registration ard provides, if It was necessary for them to sign the same. Their treatment by the Russian gov ernment in past years apparently has affected them strongly, and they are fearful that the American government may latter rettirn and demand that their sons enlist in trie war. They could not be made to under stand that the government of the United States was entirely different from that of Russia, and that the law - which was passed by democracy could not be rescinded and changed, as could have been done by the czar ef Russia ill his r,ilmv davs. The Russians left the conference still unconvinced, apparently no impression having been made upon them, although the penalty for refusal was plainly put to them by the governor. Governor Campbell then advised United States Attorney l lynn of the refusal of the Molokans to register, and was advised by Mr. Klynn to place the matter in the hands of Assistant United States Attorney Langston. Provost Marshal. General Crov.'der. in charge of legislation under the selec tive draft law, was advised of the re sult of the meeting by the governor. It is rumored that the offending Rus sians will be severely dealt with by the federal authorities, Tf they persist in their present attitude. It is estimated that about 40 young men between the ages of 21 and 30 in the Molokan colonies are involved in the question of registration. "The Molokans agreed that they understood the rules of the selective draft registration as explained by the governor,'' said Colonel Breen yester day, "and also the penalty for refusing to comply with them. It appears to be more of a religious fanaticism with them than a deliberate evasion of the law." o NOTICE TO ARCHITECTS The Board of Trustees of School Dis trict No. 11 of Peoria, Maricopa Coun ty Arizona, does hereby advertise for plans and specifications in detail, for three separate $2,000 buildings to be used as ward schools and to be located later; for one main building with base ment, auditorium, four class rooms, of fice, and library to be locatej in the town of Peoria; To cost $18,000 to $20, 000, for ground improvement in connec tion therewith to be constructed in and for said district. The amount authorized to be expend ed for the ereetion of said buildings and the equipment of same together with necessary ground improvement is $:!4.- 000.00. The premium to be awarded the Fail iii Dinna Fr CflMBapfflUBy F Company F., home guards, the membership of which is made up pretty exclusively of members of the Phoenix Rifle club, is going to have a fife and drum corps. That is, the officers of the company say tney will have such a corps, if the material for it can be found. The fife and drum corps, it is hoped to organize in connection with Com pany F, will be of the regular old tashioned kind, the kind that plays, "The Girl I Left Behind Me," as though they mean it; the kind that, puts ginger into marchers and makes men hold their heads just a little higher. But to organize this corps, the ma terial must be found. City Magis trate Frank Thomas is anxious to know if there are available men, of almost any age, who can handle a fife with skill, or hammer a drum in truly drum corps style. He wants to bring as many of these men to gether as it is possible to locate and instill into them something of the old "Spirit of 76," to the end that Company F will soon be known the state over as the organization with a drum corps. While the members of the pro posed drum corps will not be ex pected to carry arms, they will be come a part of the Phoenix Police Reserves and have just as high a standing as the "fighting men." Judge Thomas says it is a patriotic duty and he hopes there will be no end of applications for membership. H OF GOLD TO HAVE CEASED Republican A. P. Leated Wire WASHINGTON. June 7. America's great gain of gold which has grown with almost every month for two and one-half years has ceased. Gold im portations have stopped altogether, and the flow has begun the other way with indications that it will continue in comparatively small volume for some time. The turning of the tide comes at a time when the country apparently faces the greatest indus trial period of its history, greater, of ficials believe, than the last twelve months, which witnessed the estab lishment of a $6,000,000,000 record for American exports. , Cessation of gold imports to settle I trade balances when trade balances are heavier than ever before against for eign buyers is virtually a novelty in American finance. On the whole it is regarded as a healthy development, as further accretions might tend toward inflation. All foreign purchases will be paid for. of course, but in a differ ent form, the payment being made by money furnished the buyers by the United States and obtained by the flo tation of bond issues. ! AMUSEMENTS Last evening the American Musical Comedy company made its first ap pearance at the Kmpress theater and if future bills come up to the standard set uion the occasion, the Empress should do excellent business with the new company. The starting bill was "The Grafters." and on Sunday even ing a new offering. "Heinz' Dream," will be given. One of the features of the produc tion was the re-appearance of Anna Montgomery, who has a leading place in the organization. An old Phoenix favorite. Miss Montgomery was warm ly welcomed back to the stage here. There are ten character people in i the company and nearly as many in a very excellent little chorus which can sing, dance and is up to the stand ard of good looks. There are nine musical numbers in the opening bill and the melange is hot weather stuff for the tired business man who wants to be amused and not have too much thinking trust upon him. .

Wickenburg, Arizona, May ?1, j.yi.7. REPORTED ALMOST 1MB WJUW 1 AGAIN AT EMPRESS B CLERK HIS CARD OF Men Over 21 and Under 31 Must Show That They Registered to Seen r e Marriage Licenses Here A rule has been informally adopt ed by J. Elmer Johnson of the of fice (f the clerk of the court that an application for a marriage license by a man between the ages of 21 and 20 must be accompanied by a dis play or a card showing that the ap plicant has been registered for the selective draft. There may be no legislative enactment for this re quirement but it cannot be contra verted that the proper place for such an applicant is the jail, and a man who ought to be in jail ought not to, be married. This new rule was suggested by the application yesterday of Trino Leon for license to marry Delfina Esninosa. Replying to a quelior as to his age, Leon said he was twenty. He looked older and Mr. Johnson's sus picions were aroused. Leon was told that he would have to bring the writ ten ci nsent of his parents. He re plied that he could no' do that; that they vere in Mexico and all arrange ments 'tor. the wedding had been made. He was informed that he was against an inexorable law and that wedding arrangements cut no fig ure. All persons under the age of twenty-one must produce the writ ten consent of their parents for em barkation on such a solemn and per ilous enterprise as matrimony. Leon went away and soon returned with the statement that he had been it- error as in his age; he was past twenty one; he was cither twenty three or twenty-four. Mr. Johnson replied that he now had two stories before him and he did not know which to believe. He would be oblieed to still regard Leon as under twenty-one in the absence of cor roborative proof of his later state ment that he was older. Ff I-eon had any witnesses, that is. reliable wit nesses, who would testify that they knew him to he more than twenty one he had better bring them in. Leon went away and a little later returned with two witnesses who said that they had known him in Mexico from his birth and they knew that he was either twenty-three or twenty-four. That ooint having be -n established Mr. Johnsoi then asked Icon for his registration card. He had none: he had not registered; that w..s why he had lied about his age in the first place: he wanted to kiep out of the eligible zone and did not know that that also keot him out of the matrimonial. "You are one of the men the sher iff is looking for," Mr. Johnson told him: "your place is in iail; you have no business with a marriage license." Leon o'ffered a lame excuse for not having registered; he was at Scotts dale so busily engaged he had not had time. Mr. Johnson told him that he would have to turn him up t-. the sheriff but he suggested that there was one way out of the diffi culty. The sheriff might yet regis ter him: he could do so if he de sired and if he should do so insteau cf throwing him into jail he might return and the marriage license would be issued to him. Leon went away and soon return ed with evidence that he had been registered, his marriage license is sued and presumably the arrange mcnts which had been announced by 'l.eon were canicd out last right. duced in picture form at the Columbia today. This picture will be shown com plete in two-reels and wherever it it s been shown it has brought forth favo -able comment, Mabel Taliaferro ap pears in "A Wife by Proxy." The lat ter is the story of a sweet Irish ktssif a blonde adventuress and a wealth;. bachelor. The entire bill will be up to the ; ment, free from lobby gossip. The motive or the w ilcox poem is well shown by the well-remembered lines: "Sit still, 1 say, and dispense with heroics. I hurt your wrist, well, you have hurt me." These lines tell the tale of the husband who has mar ried a coquette and afford one of the striking features of the two-reel film. Arizona Theater The Arizona Theater is offering for the last four days of this week, a burletta entitled "Cohen's and Bubble's Troubles." and it is trouble they have. Hiram - Hanker, ( Ert. iinnt) who is as deaf as a bat. wants his daughter Fanny (Lillian Rose) to marry a man pf hia choice and the man must be an -eaf as he is. Then the trouble starts. Jim Donley and Jimmio Rose get laugh after laugh w ith Hiram and his car trumpet, lkey Cohen Jim Dooley) finds out that Hiram Hanker will pay $j.000 to the man who marries his daughter, so im mediately Cohen becomes deaf and Captain Swift (Art. nine), who is in love with Fanny, finds out that Cohen is not deaf and bribes him to leave the house. Dave Weston is cast as Dr. Watts, who cures Hanker of his deaf ness, and Babe Clark is cast as Miss Smith, a pal of Fanny's. The musical numbers are up to the usual company standard. The "Charivari" number. sung by Mr. Rose, is a big hit. Friday night will be chorus girl's contest night. The whole company will move June 11 to the Coliseum theater. At the Majestic It is only once in a long time that a feature like "Darkest Russia" comes along. It is only once in centuries that such a momentous happening, as the Russian revolution occurs. It is this tremendous revolution which makes thi:: picture so immensely time ly. The exac t conditions in Russia before the Jevclu.ion are depicted in this feature with remarUeable fidelity. Alice brudy taKcs the rclc of one of the liberty-loving leaders who at' a -rltical moment refuses to play "God 3ave the Czar," and who is sent to Siberia as the result. This feature has leally tremendous news value. It is like a glimpse at Russian life itself before the revolu tion changed everything. It is a big, vital historical document that has edu cational value to every man, woman and child and that is combined with one of the most pleasing stories ever thrown on a screen. See this feature it the Majestic theater today. Two Popular Stars at Lamara Blanche Sweet will be seen at the Umara today in the Lasky-Paramount picture, "Those Without Sin." Thjs .hrilling story of Richmond, Va., during he nerind iust before and at the time of the Civil war, was written especial ly for Miss Sweet by Harvey T: Tlievf not to exceed, three hundred dollars COUNTY TOTAL REGISTRATION fkkuii Roimh Ttotal Arrived at by Officials Indicates 0 r o w t h in Population of Phoenix and Maricopa Rough checking of complete regis trations returns from Maricopa county is announced by the officials in charge to indicate that about 5.000 men of draft age registered in this county. This far exceeds expectations. In gen eral an allowance of ten per cent of the registered vote was allowed for the number who would come under the selective draft register rules. This would make 5,000 a big increase over this estimate. In Phoenix, the registration is prac tically 2,000. Since there are about 7,000 registered voters in the city, this would he better than 25 per cent of the total voting list. In California the rate of registrations to population was found to be about 3.000 for 40,000 population, hence the registration in lJhoenix indicates a population within the city limits of over 2G.000. On this same basis, the population of the county is indicated to be about B5.000 people. Young men of Arizona, the "baby state," probably exemplified their pa triotism and manhood as did no other state in this great country. Exclud ing a few Russians of a peculiar re ligious faith and isolated Indian tribes, only seven "slackers" have so far been reported in the entire state, a mark of which Arizona might well be proud. Reports from other states reaching Phoenix are to the effect that hun dreds of persons failed to register. Arizona, of course, is much smaller than most of these states, but the number of "slackers" proportionate to size, it is thought, is much smaller here than in any other state. While it is admitted that officers have not yet had opportunity to learn the exact number of "slackers" in the state, the registration of last Tuesday so far exceeded expectations and esti mates that it is not believed that many could possibly have failed to comply with the President's order. Of the seven cases so far reported in Arizona, five come from Globe and the remaining two from Flagstaff. There were numerous rumors on the Streets yesterday to the effect that a number of young men of this city had failed to register, but investigation disproved the rumors, or failed to es tablish facts of a sufficient character to justify the issuance of warrants. and prepared for the screen by George Dubois Proctor, and produced under the direction of Marshall Neilan. As this winesome daughter of the south, Miss Sweet, has a .splendid opportunity to run a wonderful scale of emotions. One of the novel scenes of the picture is Miss Sweet's introduction in silhou ette, others in the cast are Tom For nian, C. H. Geldert, Guy Oliver, James Ncill. Charles Ogle, Mabel Van liuren, Dorothy Abril and Little Billy Jacobs. The P.roadway favorite, Victor Moore, will also be seen lin a Paramount comedy, "Some Doctor." Kiddie Furnishes Realism Little Frankie Lee, the four-year-old youngster who plays the part of Claire McDowell's Indian son, in the Red Feather play. "The Bronze Bride." un derstands perfectly how to "take direc tion" from the producer, in this case Henry McRae. Some times he even exceeds his orders in realism. He was told to throw his arms around his mother's neck and hug her hard. "Be all excited bite her on the ear!" said McRae,. never intending to be taken literally. Frankie obeyed to the letter and the consequence was that his In dian mother, poor Miss McDowell, ut tered a cry of pain, when the sharp little teeth sank into her ear. Fortu nately shrieks do not register on the i mm. Im sorry the kiddie hurt you." j said McRae. "but, believe me. it add.-; a t of realism to the scene." Thi ,ealism will be appreciated when the ii'ture comes to the Plaza today. "Apartment 29" at the Hip Carle Williams never has had a vehicle which gave him more chance than "Apartment 2S," which is finishing its run at the Hip today ami tonight. It is a corking story and Wil liams has the part of the great New York critic, who through a chain ot circumstances is accused of a double murder, but who is saved after one of the most exciting and nerve raising movie tales that has been seen locally in months. , Tomorrow comes another of the Paula lilac kton stonies. The second of the series that "The Diary of a Puppy," started. It is called "A Summer Idol," and is as good a value as the first one. Chaplin in "The Cure" also re turns for Saturday and Sunday. o The Board of Trustees for School District Number Seventeen, Gila Coun ty, Arizona, will receive bids from builders for the construction and com plete finishing of a si room school building at Hayden, according to plans and specifications prepared by V. O. allingrord, architect. Phoenix, Ari zona. Plans and specifications may be ob tained from the Clerk of the Hoard of Trustees, and from the architect, and bidders will be required to deposit the sum of ten dollars ($10.00( on receipt of said plans and specifications, which sum will be returned to depositor on return of plans and specifications in good order. Bids will be received up to One P. M., (1:00 p. m.) of June 18, 1917. and there after opened and considered by the Board of Trustees. The Board of Trustees reserves the right to reject any and all proposals. JOE H. BROWNE. Clerk, School District No. 17, Gila County.

The most important business transacted was the decision to hold field meetings somewhat similar to the meetings held last year by W. E. Hud son, the long staple cotton expert, who was then in the service of the Cnited States department of agriculture. The first meeting this year will be held at the Jordan school house on the Southside Saturday, beginning at 9 o'clock. To reach the meeting place from Phoenix, one should follow state highway towards Mesa past the Tempe creamery, and take first turn beyond creamery to the south continuing south instead of turning east to Mesa. Fol low the road south to the Base Line road, turn and go east two miles to the Jordan school house, where meet ing will be held. There are thousands of acres within a radius of a few miles of this school house, and the visitors will be taken to the fields and given practical illus trations of the correct methods of cul tivating cotton, when and how to irri gate, thinning and any other informa tion which may lie asked for. It has taken nearly ten years to per fect the strain of cotton which has proved so successufl in the Salt River valley, and it has cost many dollars to learn just how to handle the crop for best results. Inexperienced growers in the past have lost money because they have failed to avail themselves of the information which has been obtained by the costly experience of others. This season there are many growers who have never before raised cotton, some of them have never seen cotton growing before. There is no way so satisfactory to these people as to see fields which are correctly handled and learn just how to handle them for lest results. The potton plant, if handled correctly, will produce a paying crop, but if irrigated at the wrong time or is not thinned properly or cultivated as often as it should he. or in the right way, there is a resulting injury which no subsequent attention will remedy. In all the world there is no man who understands the long staple cotton plant and the way to handle it in this part of the country as does W. E. Hudson, under whose supervision at the Sacaton Experiment station, the plant was developed and the best methods of planting, thinning, irrigat ing and cultivating worked out. There are also in the Salt River valley, many growers who have in the past four years. acquired the experience in rais ing cotton which qualifies them to teach others the proper methods. At this meeting Saturday, there will be many besides Mr. Hudson, who will be ready and willing to extend a help ing hand to Cue Inexperienced grower, and till cotton growvrs are invited to attend. or imprisonment in the County Jail not exceeding six months, or by both such fine and imprisonment in the dis cretion of the court.
