Mesa Needs Doctors In the influenza division of St. Jo seph's hospital there were 63 cases last night. Six were taken in during yes terday, four were discharged and there were no deaths.

Tempe National Bank Safety Deposit Boxes (Jcneral Banking MAY CHE E OF 1 FIGHTWITHW1AJ0RS T DRAFTING EMBEZZLEMEHT ! The friends of E, H. Thome, the young salesman of Morris & Company I whose arrest on the charge of embez zlement was made Wednesday, said yesterday they had no doubt that he ! would be able to clear himself of the i accusation. Thorne, himself, said that ; at the most he was only guilty of an ir ', regularity in making use of funds that I came to his hands pending the Teceipt of his salary. He said that the amounts he had so used would not aggregate more than $350 or $400. while there was due him nearly that much from I the company. Correcting a statement that had been made regarding merchandise which he had received back from merchants trom whom he had taken orders, he said that the merchandise so taken by him and placed in storage was not in excess of the orders that had been Siven him. but it was bacon that had been received in an unsatisfactory condition. It was on account of two such lots that the two fharges of em bezzlement were lodged against him. Thorne further said that he had tried to conceal nothing from the company, but nad included all his transactions in his reports. TO TRY DRAFT EVADERS II ROCKFORD, Ills., Nov. 14. Camp Grant is to become a bastile of all conscientious objectors and draft evaders in camps of the central de partment; 'nrilitary officials announced today. The objectors will come here from Camps Sherman, Dodge, Grant and Custer and will face the examin ing board November 20, when their cases will be disposed of. Judge Ma hone R.

War be tween the major leagues and the minor organizations of the country threatens to develop as a result of the action taken at the annual meeting of the National Association of Professional Baseball Leagues here today, protest ing against the privileges of the major leagues to draft star players from the minors. The protest was embodied in a reso lution drawn by A. R. Tearney of Chicago, president of the Three I league, and presented by Jack Hol land of the Western league. The resolution demanded that the Ameri can and National leagues relinquish the right of the draft and also the practice of "farming, out" players un der the optional agreement. It 'was adopted without a dissenting vote. Thomas J. Pickey, president of the American association, urged the minor league organization to withdraw from the national agreement with the ma jors if the demand is refused. A com mittee consisting of Holland, Tearney and Joe Tinker, owner of the Colum bus club of the American association, was appointed to present the protest to the national baseball commission at its first meeting. Demand Disposal Right "We shall demand the right to dis pose of our young stars to whom we see fit, instead of having them drafted by the major leagues at prices ranging from $2.!0ti down to $750, as prevails under existing conditions," President Tearney said. "It is the minor league that develops these stars of the majors and the smaller leagues should reap the finan cial reward." The minor leagues, however, desire to reserve the privilege of drafting players within their own organiza tion, higher leagues drafting from lower class organizations under pres ent regulations. Steps will be taken to readjust the draft prices to con form with the new legislation. The minor leaguers also adopted new sal ary limits and agreed to a reclassification. TEMPE, Nov. 13. The War Work fund is suffering somewhat from cloudy weather, rain and influenza. Nevertheless, Tempe will wake up and respond to the call in time to preserve her reputation of always going over the top in time. An example of true patriotism, fore sight and zeal worthy of mention is that of Guy Botkin, an employe of the Baber-Jones Marcantiie company, who during the heat of the summer worked early and late after hours putting in milo maize in vacant lots. As a result of this industry, he has $175 which he is devoting entirely to the different or ganizations of war work. $30 of this was applied to the present drive. A few more patriots like Mr. Botkin and the work of raising funds could be com pleted in a day instead of a week. Per sonal solicitation cannot be done at this time, but booths are maintained at both banks for the purpose of taking in subscriptions. Checks sent by mail are equally as good as presented personally. A mistaken idea prevails among some people who seem to think the signing of the armistice means an im mediate release from further sacrifice. But the boys are in France, wounded and ill (perhaps homesick) and the cessation of strenuous active warfare demands an increase of other interests to supply the stremh needed to carry on to the glorious finish. MESA HOSPITAL HAS ID OCCUPANTS AF'JLI E IS ONE DEATH MESA, Nov. 14. Jhere were 110 pa tients , in the emergency hospital Thursday. Of these 12 were very ill. The hospital reports two discharged, these being George Brown and Morris j Johnson. One death has occurred. The people are especially asked to ; keep in mind the need for clean cot- ' ton cloths'; this is urgent. It has also j been suggested that magazines that ! are new and in good condition would j be appreciated by those who are con- j valescing. At the South Side hospital there are at present 10 patients. Mr. and Mrs. W. K. Bowen were moved to their ', home yesterday and are well on the road to recovery. I On Pnfluenza Roll Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Peters.

Pickens, the constable, must be some detective, since he is in bed with double pneumonia and hardly in con dition to ferret out crime even by the absent treatment. He has tiad noth ing to suggest concerning the Hyder case. . , . o ISA 1 OF DOUBLE PNEUMONIA MESA, Nov. 15. Owing to the prev alence of the influenza as well as the inclement wenther, the' pledges to the United War Work fund are coming in rather slowly. 'Those of the committee who have not been prevented by illness are still faithfully endeavoring to put Mesa "over the top before the drive is ended.

She leaves a husband and a nine-months-old child. The body will he taken to the old home at Lompoc, California for burial. Mr. John Viglienghi will accompany the' body. TOO BUSY FOR CRIME MESA, Nov. H. The many friends of Bishop and Mrs. Isaac Dana were made sad by learning of the death of their son, Melvin Dana, which oc curred about 8 o'clock Wednesday ev ening. The young man was a victim of double pneumonia which followed a siege of influenza. Melvin Dana had lived all of his life in Mesa, with the exception of the two he spent away from here, during which time he was doing missionary work for the Latter Day Saints' church. He' was well known and thought- of as one who always had a smile for those with whom he came in contact. . Besides his parents, he leaves a sister and a young wife to mourn hs loss. The funeral services will be held to day at 2 o'clock. ' Those attending will leave for the' cemetery at 1:30, the service being held at the grave. G'. E. Phelps will preside and the speakers will be George A. MacDonald and A. C. Huber. TELLS LABOR NEED .t OF REGULAR WORK 144 EAST ADAMS ST. LEIGH FORD, Mgr. Phone 1510 (Fresno '(Cal.) Republican) The report of the county peace of ficers that the war has decreased the jail population carries with it an in teresting suggestion for peace times also. .The men who would have com mitted the crimes trf fill the vacant places in jail are certainly not all in the army. And if those who are there are not committing crimes, it is because- they are getting something in the army which they had not got in civil life. The others are not commit ting crimes because they are too busy and too prosperous. They have work enough to. keep them out of mischief and money enough' to keep them out of temptation. By the time the army registration and the Work-or-Fisht Law have com pjcted their task of eliminating those who are mentallv unfit either to work or fight, we shaft doubtless have dis posed of most of our criminals or po fential criminals, at least within the draft age.

In the capture of Jesus Gonzales and Jose Montana by Motorcycle Officer Papo the police believe they have the principals in a gang of pickpocket swindlers that has been operating in Phoenix for weeks. According to an investigation by Chief Detective McGrath, , the game played by these Mexicans is something like this:. Two partners strike an acquaint ance with a disinterested person and walk a ways with him. One of the two drops a pocketbook, and the other member of the gang picks it up. The disinterested person, who is behind the man who dropped the pocketbook, calls attention to the partner walking with him, that the pocketbook picked up belongs to the man ahead. The "finder" of the pocketbook then says " hush, we will divide what money there is in the pocketbook." When this is agreed to. the man in front, who had dropped) the pocket book, turns abruptly and accuses the disinterested person of taking it. When that person denies the charge the man who dropped the. pocketbook searches the disinterested person's pockets and takes everything therein. The game was last played by Gon zales and Montana with a Chinese as the disinterested person. The China man had just left the Southwest Cot ton company property on Grant street when Gonzales and Montana came along, with the assurance, the Chinese told the police, that they knew he had some money in his possession. The man ahead dropped the pocket book, according to plan, and the man inn STATE IAS GREAT SUPPLY Coincident w-ith the renewal of plans for the conservation of hard nut shells and fruit pits to be used in the manu facture of carbon for gas masks comes information that indicates Arizona stands a good chance of leading the. nation in supplying high grade mate-, rial for carbon. In a letter received by M. T. Grier,, phnirmnn nf the. hotel and restaurant- division of the federal food adminis tration for Arizona. W. M. Jackson, first lieutenant in the chemical war fare service of the gas defense division of the war rteoartment. writes that thft chemical analysis of the date pits re cently sent by Mr. Grier show that this product is entirely satisfactory to pro duce carbon for masks. As there are literally tons of this material nanging on tne date palm trees of Arizona, a splendid opportu nity is presented to patriotic bovs and girls in aiding the Red Cross in this important work. Before sending in dates to the Rod Cross they should be boiled for a few minutes so that the pits may be easily extracted. T"sp. The Republican Classified Arts. for Results P.ead for Profit.
