THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN, TUESDAY MORNING, APRIL 2, 1913 CLASS B Ai t LAIS GRANTED IT TO VOTE Writ of Mandamus Directed to "Water Users' Associa tion Is Issued Here By Superior Judge Lyman Granting the 21 owners of class B and V. liimls the right to vote at the annual election of the Water Users' association today. Judge Lyman yes leirtay handed down a decision which u tiles one of the most important legal crises with reference to voting powers in the history of the project. The -1 pluinlil'fs are hut a few of the land owners whose names did not ap piar on the register and the decision will undoubtedly result in owners of l.i mis of liUe status demanding the riaht to vote. Judge Richard K. Sloan brought his iii tinn mi the articles of incorporation "i" the association which gives the own i i s voting privileges irrespective of the ( Ijssifirntion of lands. The Water I'sers association was represented by Judge II. Kibbey. That the court's judgment dealt solely with ihf light to vote and not on the dis tiibuticin of water was stated in Judge Lyman's decision. "It is ordered that the writ of man damus issue directing the Water Users' association to place the names of these plaintiffs upon the register so as to i-ntitle them to vote at the Water I sers' election tomorrow," he said. "The judgment implies no right on the part of these shareholders to dis tribution of water, but only that the Matus of subscribers to share in the association is unchanged notwith sianding the fact that the ecretary of the interior has limited the lands to certain persons to whom water should lie distributed from reservoirs." EASTER SUNDAY IS CELEBRATED Kastrr Sunday at the First Methodist church was one long to be remembered. The Faster spirit prevailed throughout the day from the opening of the Sun day school until the benediction was ptunounced at night. The attendance at Sunday school was a remarkable ne anil the report showed nearly 6iJ0 in attendance. One feature of the day was the tak ing af the birthday offerings, which netted $64. S7. Especially noticeable was the splendid work of the orchestra 't the Sunday school and Epworth league services. .Mr. and Mrs. Nelson bowed excellent latent in the or chestra work and were backed up by sonic splendid musicians. Ur. Ray C. Marker's sermon on "The Living Lord" was emblematical of the tiay celebrated and was taken from the text "1 am alive fore-vermore," Rv. 1 : IS. fie said in part: "The crown of Christmas with its manger-cradle, and of Calvary with its uplifted cross is Easter witlf its empty sipulcher and risen Lord. The Resur icction of Christ attests the fact of im mortality and saves us from collapse of hope. 'Easter has made a flower garden of every graveyard. The flag of im mortal hope flutters over the Chris tian's tomb.

"The church, the saei-nment th creeds, the bible are not the objects AGE OF LIKE AS ID AS L I B A problem in high finance has been referred to Sam W. Proctor, secretary of the state corporation commission, for solution by a wo man from another state who says she is "89 years young and should have known better." This youthful octogenarian writes to the commission that she at one time purchased 1,000 shares of a certain company which is in corporated in Arizona. The capital stock of the company at that time, she writes, was $69,000,000 of a par value of $1 per share. Since then the company has been through a transforming and juggling process, she declares, until the capital stock has been reduced to $1,000,000 of a par value of ten cents per share. "They have offered me 100 shares of the new stock for my 1,000 shares of the old stock," the woman writes. "Now, please tell me where I stand, of I have been stung and whether I owe the company money.' Mr. Proctor is still figuring on the problem. BOOT RS 111 GllUt 1 1 hi Black Canyon Eoad Will Be Rendezvous for Those "Who Aided In Circulation of Liquor In Dry State of our worship, they are 'the windows' through which we see Him whom we adore. It is the living Christ who gives life to them. Without Him they are cold, voiceless, dead. We worship not a dead Christ, but a living Christ; not a buried Christ, but an ascended Chrust; not a distant Christ, but a present Christ; not a. Christ of yester day, only, but of yesterday, today and iorever. Following the sermon was a most impressive service of baptism and re ception of members. The baptismal service was given to about fifteen peo ple. Eighty-four were received into membership of the church by letter and confession of faith in the Living God. One hundred and five have been re ceived in the month of March. The anthem entitled "Christ our Passover" was most appropriate and was ex pressive of the Christ love for His people. The Epworth league service was con ducted by Dr. Munson at . 6: 30 o'clock. A splendid gathering of the young people filled the room, and the time was not sufficient to allow all to ex press the message that was in their hearts for Him who said: "Glory to God in the highest, and peace on earth, good will toward men." The day closed with a program of reading and the Easter cantata. Miss Katherine Howard gave as a. reading "The Resurrection" and show:ed her ability to give the. audience something that was really impresive and con tained a most beautiful lesson. Too much praise cannot be given the choir for the rendering of the Easter cantata, "The Lord of Light and Love," by Julian Edwards. The untirring effort's of Mrs. C. M. Gandy, director, and Mrs. Harry L. Shedd, organist, produced some music that one would go a long way to duplicate. The faithfulness of the choir members enabled the render ing of this beautiful cantata. Outside of the choir, assistance was given by Conrad Mills, Mrs. Clyde Blaine, Mrs. Wilkinson, Mr. Austin, Mr. Horrall, Mrs. Wright and Mr. Williams. A crowded house pfrceted the services both morning and evening, and several people were turned away, being unable to get into the church. The decorations were in green and white throughout. Large palms and climbing rose branches, Easter lilies and white flags, orange blossons with their fragrant odors, all arranged about the choir loft and pulpit, made a most beautiful display and brought the les son of Easter to the congregation in a most imp'ressive manner, as God's thoughts expressed through these beautiful flowers. o Prisoners in the county jail, con victed of bootlegging, will be put to work at once on the roads of Mari copa county. The board of supervisors on recom mendation of Harold Bargman, county engineer, recently announced that county prisoners sentenced to serve time at hard labor would be de tailed on road work. Judge Stanford in imposing, sentence on violators of the liciuor law has had this in mind with the result that the cells are crowded with men who will soou form a road camp oh the Black Can yon road. Engineer Bargman stated yesterday that the short cut to Prescott would be remodeled by prison labor. The improvement work will be under the direction of a road foreman and will be inspected at regular intervals by the county engineer. A deputy shei iff will be in charge of the camp which Will comprise from 10 to 15 men. Bargman beliees that in putting this road in shape summer travel will be confined largely to this state, rather than to the coast. Every mile of the Black Canyon road to the Yavapai county line will be repaired and with this accomp lishment it will give the travelers two open roads to the north. 5 rv COLUMBIA Theater TODAY D. W.

Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Powell, (Ruth Bandy), are en route for Califor nia where they will pass their honey moon. V The happy days on the cost are to be numbered, for in a week Mr. Powell will join the marines at Mare Island and his pretty young wife willsreturn to her parent's home. Giving the newspaper contingent, with which both Mr. Powell and his bride have been identified, the slip the couple were married at 4 o'clock yes terday with only Vieir immediate rela tives present at the ceremony. The service was read by Reverend W. S. Buchanan. The bride, who is a daugh ter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Bandy of o0t .North mnth street, wore her trav j eling suit, a smart tailored affair of blue serge that was especially becom i ing. A chic tailored hat completed her j costume. j Mrs. Powell was graduated from the local high school with the class of '16 and later attended the State College of i Colorado. She. returned to Phoenix ! last .spring since which time she has been connected with business depart ment or tne Kepunlican. An unus ually clever girl with a winning per sonality she has a legion of friends in the social and business -sets. "Eddie" Powell, as he is known to his intimates, is one of the best liked young men in the city where he made his home for a number of years. He was connected with the circulation department of this paper for several seasons leaving here to accept a posi tion as circulation manager of the San Diego Tribune. He later resigned from the coast paper to resume his connec tion with The Republican as head of the circulation department remaining here until last spring when he went to Boston to accept aposition with the Christian Science Monitor. A few weeks ago he returned to Phoenix and rumors of the wedding were current. Both young people admitted the engagement but it was understood that the wedding would be an after the war event. o P AMUSEMENTS ? a Cecil Fanning Booked The announcement is made by Miss Clara Hazgard that Cecil Fanning, the baritone, will be the final artist on the Phoenix Philharmonic course, ap pearing monday, April 8. He comes in the place of Julia Culp, who has been unable to .fully fill her American engagements, owing "to the fact that Holland (German sympathizer) has refused her pass port. The following is an extract from a Seattle paper: "In writing of Cecil Fanning one hesitates to designate him as a bari tone, for while he is in fact a fine baritone with beautiful diction, that limitation must at once be corrected by adding that he is also a poet of ditinction; again, his dramatic talent is one of the striking characteristics of his work. To this pleasing com bination is added a pleasing personal ity, utterly devoid of self-consciousness." Norma Talmadge at the Hip Today sees the final screening of the sparkling picture "The Ghosts ot. Yes terday" at the Hip, where Norma Tal madge has been seen in her greatest cinema production. The picture is the last word in smart story well acted and done with a notable cast of screen favorites in support of the" star. Tomorrow the greatest expose of the past three years is to be screened when Rupert Julian's merciless drama depicting the blood rule of the iaa Dog of Europe," "The Kaiser,"' is started on a four days run. t This picture opened Sunday in every large city in the United States and Phoenix woulU have been in the same class had not the makers decreed that it should not be shown anywhere on the opening dates for less than 50 cents top. The fight of the Hip to show it at house prices resulted in the manage ment receiving a long distance call yesterday from the coast represent atives of the picture submitting to the request for the showing here without a tilt in price. This is the dramatic story which the New York critics pronounced, when re viewed privately there several days ago, as the picture that makes, patriots out of pacifists. It will be pre-viewed privately this morning by the leading workers in the war movements here. m t Auto Owners Save Gasoline BY USING Its use in any Gasoline Engine guaranteed to save from 25 to 50 per cent of gasoline.

HASSLER SHOCK ABSORBERS FOR FORDS s Makes Riding Easy and Saves Tires and Wear 10 Days' Free Trial IMMEDIATE DELIVERY OF FORDS ED HUB Phoenix and Glendale William Fox production, is playing successfully at the Empress theater. In "The Heart of a Lion," which is founded on Ralph Connor's widely read novel, "The Doctor," Mr. Farnum plays the role of Barney Kemper, a farmer who is disappointed in love and seeks the solace of the great forests. There he meets his brother, who had once sinned against him. He meets also a rough forester who is doing his level best to see that Barney's brother is put out of the way. The conflict between these three men, with two women embroiled in its complication, makes one of the fastest moving pictures ever shown in this city. Marguerite Clark at Lamara In another of what have been termed among the most charming stories ever done in pictures. Marguerite .Clark comes to the Lamara today for a three days' engagement in "Bab's Matinee Idol," the latest of the famous "sub deb" stories by Mary Roberts Rinehart, in which this dainty little star has scored the greatest triumph of her wonderfull career. J. Searle Dawley is again the director responsible for the film, which is quite up to the standard set by this inimitable director of the first release of these famous Saturday Evening Post stories. What could be any more charming than a portrayal by Marguerite Clark, one of the dain tiest stars in filmdom, of a young boarding school girl, stage struck to the greatest degree, and madly infatu ated with a popular "matinee idol." Such is the role which Marguerite Clark brings to the Lamara screen this time, and It is freely predicted that the present "sub-deb" story will even prove a bigger hit than its predeces sors, which in street parlance is "going some." Burton Holmes appears on the same program with a reel of travel experi ence showing scenes "Round about Adelaide" the capital of southern Australia. Feature Packs Columbia Having played to capacity day and night for two days, "The Birth of a Nation" will be' repeated again today and tomorrow. As is generally known. "The Birth of a Nation" is an elaboration in pictures of Thomas Dixon's "The Clansman." "The Clansman" was a dramatization of a novel by the same name; the novel was written from a lecture which Dr. Dixon delivered as a lyceum and Chau tauqua attraction throughout the coun try, and the lecture was merely an elaboration of the sermon that he first delivered in his church in New York city. It was not until it got on the screen that any talk of censorship was ever started,- and this would appear uncalled for. However, what censoring has been done would seem to have been for the bettering of the picture, as the scene deleted was not essential to the story. The picture was the first of the great moving picture productions, and it set a mark that has, in the estimation of a great many, never been equalled, al though many fiave tried. It is a stirr ing story that is told and one that should be known to the youth of the country, as it contains much of histori cal value that is either purposely i . avoided or overlooked in the histories that are taught. As a spectacle, it has Post. T.PTltpn Tlanpo never been outdone, and. although this Uab Jjelllen WaUCe is announced as a farewell tour, it is . , safe to predict that "The Birth of a At Nation" will not be shelved for a long time to come: 117 11 , .
