TOIV JOHNS CASE TO TRIAL TODAY The famous Tony Johns case will go to trial in Prescott today, with mollis Jiart, assistant attorney gen eral, and Will E. Ryan, special council, representing the state. The suit which the Aubrey Investment company brought against the state for the bal ance alleged to be due on mules and grading equipment was originally set for summer, but later it was continued until after election. The suit is based on an alleged con tract entered into by the company, of which Johns is president and principal stockholder, and the old commission of state institutions. The contract was one of the last bits of business of the old administration and when the state highway department received the mules and equipment that had been furnished the state for $21,000, with $3,000 paid with the signing of the contract, it asked Tony Johns to take back the mules; which it alleged were old and infirm and useless as far as work was concerned. Johns refused to do so and brought suit against the state. : O Dueling was abolished m the British army ln 1S44. RECORD CROWDS S RETURNS FLASHED I REPUBLICAN'S SCREEN A new record for interest in election results was established on Tuesday- night when a transient crowd, which swelled in numbers to the 3000-mark at times, good naturedly elbowed, pushed and squeezed into standing space in front of The Arizona Repub lican building to watch the returns as they were flashed upon the walls of a building directly across from The Re publican. Arizona has Witnessed some hotly contested elections. A general public interest has always been manifested at such - times, but never before in the history of the state nas a, whole city populace been so aroused and genu inely excited as was Phoenix Tuesday night. Several hundred people gath ered around The Republican building long before the first returns began to filter in over the wires from the east. The initial bulletin posted brought sev eral hundred others and when, the stereoplicon began throwing out bulle tins as fast as they were received over the wire the crowd grew so rap idly that traffic was almost cut off at Second and Adams streets. That the sentiment of the spectators was in accord with the nature of the returns received was indciated by the roars of approval which greeted suc cessive flashes which piled up majori ties for the Republican candidates. Films recalling the visit of Colonel Roosevelt to Arizona and other sub jects of unusual political interest were shown through the courtesy of Elton Kunselman. Outbursts of patriotic fervor greeted the showing of such historic subjects as "Washington Crossing the Delaware," Betsy Ross making the first flag, and pictures of America's great presidents and states men. t o Hugh Jennings, who resigned as man ager of the Detroit baseball team after 14 years service, will take up the prac tice of law, a profession which has en gaged his attention during the baseball off-season since his graduation from Cornell University.
