Once more the deserving poor of Phoenix are going to have a beautiful, bountiful Christmas. All doubts that the war could keep the Christmas spirit away have been removed. The Salvation Army is going to keep right on spreading the Christmas cheer it has spread here so many years. Kor the third consecutive year, the Salvation Army Christmas will center around the great Christmas tree in the lobby of the Hotel Adams. Plenty of gifts for all are assured, and the tree will soon be erected. The Salvation Army, under the di rection of Adjutant and Mrs. John L. Shearer, is planning other Christmas activities besides the tree,' however. Approximately 100 poor, deserving families in the city have been inves tigated hy the workers, and given tick ets which entitle them to a Christmas basket. Each basket will contain food for the entire family, including a chicken, potatoes, celery, flour, cereals, canned goods, sugar, coffee, sweet cakes and probably canned fruit. Pork and beef will also be found in most of the baskets. The baskets are made-possible by the contributions of generous citizens of Phoenix, who are responding very well to the Salvation Army's needs. The Live. Wire club, composed of the employes of the Dorris-Heyman Fur niture company, alone contributed 10 baskets, or food for 60 people. In addition BOO poor children will be made happy Christmas morning by the Salvation Army. Each child will get a stocking containing oranges, ap ples, nuts and toys. STATE CLOSES CASE OF SOI CHARGED WITH AGED If TIER'S DEATH Motion for the dismissal of the case of Charles Hollingsworth, charged with the murder of his mother, Mrs. Ellen Hollingsworth, will be argued before Justice De Souza Monday. The state rested its case yesterday when the preliminary hearing was con tinued from a week ago. After the state had completed its evidence, P. C. Struckmeyer, for the defense, stated that he would argue for a dismissal "for want of sufficient evidence," which he quickly corrected to "for want of any evidence." Owing to the crowded condition of the court calendars it was necessary to hear the arguments out side of regular court hours, and Jus tice De Souza announced he would take up the matter at 7:30 o'clock to morrow night. County Attorney It M. Laney at tempted to show motive for the mur der by the fact that Hollingsworth might be the chief beneficiary under his mother's will. He called for J. K. Langston, who Is alleged to have drawn up the document, but owing to objections, the disposition Mrs. Hol lingsworth made of her property was not revealed. The county prosecutor then attempted to show by Bert Hol lingsworth, brother of the accused man, that Charles would profit by his mother's death. "Did you not tell me that your brother Charles said he would be the. chief beneficiary under your mother's will?'' asked the county attorney. "No," was the prompt reply. Several weeks before Mrs. Holllngs worth's death, which occurred at the family home, 368 North First avenue, on November 30, Bert Hollingsworth visited here from St. Louis. During his stay the brothers quarreled bitterly and Bert complained to the county at torney's office of his brother's treat ment of his mother. He admitted on the stand yesterday that he had re ported to the officers that his brother had kept his mother In bed by violence when she wanted to get up. He said he also told that he had heard his brother and aunt say that Mrs. Hollingsworth would soon be out of the way. That Charles bound and gagged the patient and gave her mor phine also were statements that the witness admitted he made. In another breath he testified that there was nothing unusual in Charles' conduct while he was in the house and that he had never witnessed any trouble between him and his mother. After the witness liad contradicted himself half a dozen times, Mrs, Lil lian Brogan, a next-door neighbor, was called to the stand. She testified as to threats made by Charles to his mother and said she frequently heard him curse and use vile language to her. Dr. BaAey, who signed the death certificate, testified that Mrs. Hol lingsworth died of arterio-sclerosls with cerebral hemorrhage. He said that he prescribed morphine tablets t be administered by her son. He de clared it was not at all unusual for a delirious patient to be tied to the bed. S10 A 11 IS MmYSADTOB TO E SETTLEMENT OF An Income of t2,000 a month and a back debt of J27.00O is alleged to be the settlement made by the McKay family with Mrs. Angus MeK&y, who claimed to be the wife of the dead mining man and sole heir to his $1,200,000 estate. Mrs. McKay told close friends yesterday that she was leaving at once for New York, where the final settlement would be made. Shortly after McKay's death the al leged widow filed a petition for letters of administration of the estate. Th McKay family in Montreal immediate ly Instituted proceedings in which they attempted to show that McKay had written a letter to his brother a fow weeks prior to his death in which he made disposition of his property. The relatives asked that Uie letter be produced in court, but when the time came for the appearance of Mrs, McKay she had left the court's juris diction. On her return from Califor nia, she was jilocrd on the witness itand and forced to submit to a Trill ing cross- examination. Mrs. McKay admitted that she had een a letter written by McKay, but that it had been stolen by a nurse who cared for McKay during his last illness. She made serious charges akainst the woman, who, it is under stood, has revealed the contents of the letter which she is alleged to have claimed Mrs. McKay showed her. Mrs. McKay's counsel asked that an order be made for the appearance in court of the nurse, and, although the order was entered, the matter was ap parently dropped pending negotiations for a settlement Judge Richard E. Sloan, who went east a week ago, is said to have held a consultation with his clients, the McKays, which re sulted in the departure of Mrs. McKay for the east. McKay lived in Arizona for a num ber of years, passing much of his time at his mining properties, the Vul ture mine, in Wickenburg. -o Use The Republican Classified Pages for Results Read for Profit. o P -D IF YOU MISS YOUR PAPER City subscribers who do not re ceive The Arizona Republican promptly should telephone the cir culation department, phone 4331, before 8 o'clock in the morning nd a copy will be immediately sent them.
