TAUF. NIYK. CLASSIFIED ADS A THEY REACH MORE PEOPLE DAILY THAN YOU CAN SEE IN A MONTH Explanation of How It Hap pened Not Entirely Ac cepted by Authority. Statement of J. F. Wilson. Former Delegate to Congress-Census First. FRIDAY, l)MT.MIEn IS, 1B07. DOLLAR SIGN'S ARIZONA SHOULD ORIGIN IS NO! PRESS VAGUE CLAIM v. J 1 0 4 -if i 4 Several attempt have been made to explain the origin of the mark that ta used aa the atgn of the dol lar, and to show how It came Into use. And U need not cause surprise that none of the explanations has seemed to receive ratification. The principal ones that have been given axe then: (1.) That tt Is a combination of the initials of United States. (2.) That It is a. union of the let ters P. and 8., from the Spanish word pesos. (J.) That It Is a modification of the figure 8, aa the dollar Is called a piece of eight. (4.) That tt is derived from a representation of the Pillars of Her cules found on dollars once in com mon use. (8.) That H Is a contraction of J I. 8., the mark of the Roman money unit. These are nil theories only, each one having, perhaps, a slight proba bility in its favor, but without any Arm basis of fact or history to rest on. Whatever resemblance there may be between our dollar mark and some of the characters that have been used before and elsewhere, It la clear that this mark Is of Ameri can origin, and that It came Into use after the adoption of the federal cur rency. Sterling Money. Formerly and for a long time, all accounts In the United States were kept in sterling money. At the close of the revolution the currency in use had become greatly depreciated, and the depreciation was different In an ferent sections of the country.' While no mint had been established in this country, the Spanish dollar and its subdivisions were In general use. The word dollar was not coined in this country. It is the English equivalent of the German thaler, the unit of the German monetary sys tem. It was in use in England as early as 1553. It varies at different times in these shapes. Iollar, dol lor, daler, flaldar, dolor and dolloer. Difficuties at llrxt, Much difficulty and confusion re sulted from the effort to substitute the federal names for the . d to which the people had so long been accustomed. And this difficulty was vastly increased by the fact that these aim had dlffrent values in dif ferent sections of the country. An 11 . lustration of this difficulty and of one of the methods of overcoming it. Is afforded by the practice of the Bank of North America, in Fnuaaeipnia -The accounts of that bank at Us or ganization In 1782 were keipt in Mex ican dollars ' and ninetieth parts thereof, and Its notes were given for dollars and ninetieth parts of a dol lar. In 1789 it Issued notes for all email sums as one-ninetieth of dollar. The bank adopted this plan for the reason that at that time the dollar in Pennsylvania equaled seV' en shillings and six-pence; and the penny was the one-nlnetleth of a dollar. Un to this time no sign had come into use to designate the dol lar. DeWItt's little Early Risers are the bet pills made. Sold by J. H, O'RIelly. SAYS THREE HUGS ARE WORTH $30,000 Defendant in Suit Kays Her I Ami lord lHflhly Knibrucr.l Her He Denies It. St. Louis, Dec. 13. If Mrs. Ora Butts, a divorcee, who conducts a theatrical boarding-house In East St. Louis, wins a suit she hai brought, her landlord, John Klckham, for mer sheriff of St. Clair county, who has a wife and three children, will have to pay her $30,000 for having, she alleges, hugged her three times and attempted to kiss her. Mr. Klckham denies tue charge. Mrs. Butts continues to occupy Kickham's hom-e at No. 20 North Sixth street, although he has turned off the heat and water supplied from another building he owns across the street, and has filed suit to eject her. The ejectment suit was filed a few hours before Mrs-. Butt's wuit was filed at Belleville. In It Klckham charges that she refuses to pay her rent. Mrs. Butts told a reporter yester day that Klckham caressed her and tried to kiss her Oct. S and Oct. 10 in her home, and that each time a hnr.rder there, whom she calls Thomas, and who.-e full name she refustu to give, came to her aid when she screamed. In the evening of Oct. 16. Mrs. Butts says, Klckham tent for her to come to his office and she went. After she got Into the room, she says, he turned off the lights and locked the door, and again forced his caresses on her until she called his pet mastiff. She says the dog caught his mas ter's collar and pulled him away. iSince then, Mrs. Butts says, ahe has refused to pay rent, and she eays the will continue to withhold he money until damages are sent to her for the attacks. She Is borrow ing water from a neighbor and using stoves to heat the house. Klckham nays Mrs. Butts Is try ing to get her rent free, and that he proposes to put her out of the hou.e at any cost. He declared her charg es are absurd. A Reliable Remedy for Croup. With the dry, cold weather ot the early winter months, parents of crou py children should be on the alert for ominous symtoms. There Is no cause for anxiety, however, when Chamberlain's Cough Remedy Is kept In the home. If this medicine Is given as aoon aa child becomes hoarse or even after the croupy cough has appeared, the attack may be warded off. Mrs. 8. Roslnthal, of Turner, Michigan, saya: "We have used Chamberlain's Cough medicine for ourselves and children for several year and like it very much. I think It 1 the only remedy for croup and can highly recommend It." For sale by all druggist. Tucson. Dec. IS. That Arlsona should not pre her claims for single statehood during the present session of congress, is the opinion of Colonel 1. F. Wilson, twice a representative irom this territory to the body or national lawmaker, as expressed In an Interview with a Star representa tive last evening at his room in the Santa Rita, Colonel Wilson Is of the opinion that the more effective way would be to prove the president and members of congress that Arl ozna's population, Is xufflcrent to en title it to statehood, then go forward and press our claims. Mr. Wilson eald: "There is a mark ed reaction from the business situa tion as It was a month or six weeks ago. Everywhere that I have been over the territory there are not only Indications or a general revival ol business activity, but the revival it self has already set In. The money market In the east la getting better and its result Is felt locally In the fact that Arizona banks are now In a majority of the cities practically on a cash basis. I think that the copper market will rise steadily henceforward and that it Is only a question of a short time until the number of men In employment will rapidly approach that before the slump. In one or two cities of the territory the statement has been made to me that the amount of de posHs In the last six weeks has been to all Intents and purposes as much as any like period In the past year." "The statehood proposition," ald Colonel Wilson, continuing. "Is one In which I am as much Interested as any man, but I do not believe that Arizona will secure statehood at the present session of congress. It seems to me that the energies f the people of Arizona who really de sire statehood would be more effec tually put forth if directed, not In presenting bills for statehood to con gress, but in urging our delegates to present a bill authorizing the taking of a government census of the population of this territory. President Roosevelt, In a recent conversation with Senator Frank L. Flint of California ald that he believed that both Arizona and New Mexico were entitled to separate statehood, because of the fact that they had expressed themselves against Joint statehood when the proposition was submitted to them. The president further said that he would heartily endorse statehood for Arizona If it could be shown that the population is equal to that of tne number of Inhabitants required for one congressional district, which la in the neighborhood or zuu, uuu. i believe the president is a sincere con vert to our right to statehood, there fore would It not be much better to get a bill through congress ordering a census taken? "The growth of Arizona in the las! two or three years has been verj remarkable and there are undoubted ly more than 200,000 people within our borders. The cent-ua should be taken and that fact established, then either at the second session of this congress or at the first session of the slxtyfirst congress, Arizona couia make her fight for statehood with every prospect of success. Oklahoma had such a federal census taken and It Is generally understood that the result of it had much to do with President Roosevelt's approval of the enabling act. ANOTHER 'BLOW Al THE IAFI National Committee Ixs Off 28 Ter ritorial Delegate. All of Whom Were Safe. . Washington, Dec. 13. Another "swat" has been delivered, at the Taft boom by the republican nation al committee, and this time it is more serloun than the moral-effect swat administered by the selection of Chicago for the convention. It de prives the boom of votes votes In hand as well as votes prospective. The only delegates so far elected have been those of Alaska. That te--rltory held its convention at Juneau on Nov. 14 and elected six delegate Instructed for Taft. It would have Instructed them for Roosevelt had not the White House passed the tip along that a bigger hit would be made with the administration by instructing for Taft. All the territories, of course, be long body and soul to the adminis tration. Counting the District of Columbia there are seven of them, and that would have meant forty two for Taft enough to nominate him in a close fight. The national committee has piled there votes off from Taft by cutting the territorial representation down to two votea each Instead of six. This lops twenty-eight votes oft from the Taft strength, four of them be ing votes actually In hand. The Alas kan delegation is reported to have already started for Chicago.

The coming of the cold weather gives rise to the question of how best to heat those rooms and hall ways of the house that seldom if ever warm up, no matter how big a nre there may be in the furnace or other heating apparatus. The best way out of the difficulty is the u.-e of auxiliary stoves and of these It would be difficult Indeed to find anything so handy and at the same time so clean and economical as the Perfection Oil Heater. To begin with, it Is absolutely safe. The wick can be turned as high or as low as possible without danger. But perhaps the most desirable fea ture of all la its convenience. The Perfection OH Heater can be easily carried to any part of the house where more heat Is required. It may be a cold bedroom, a chilly hallway, sick room. Or you can use It to heat the bathroom while you take your morning bath then dress by It and then carry It to the dining room and eat your breakfast in comfort. The occasions on which it can be called into use are numerous and once you have tried the Perfection Oil Heater you'll wonder why you ever struggled through a cold winter without one. Another advantage Is the smokeless burner, which prevents any of the unpleasantnesses that per haps have given you a poor idea of of oil heaters in general. It is very handsome in appearance snd Is beautifully finished in nickel and Japan. Another home comfort for the long winter evenings is the Rayo Lamp, which can be used in any room In the house from parlor to bed room. It has the latest improved burner, making it unusually safe and clean, and an Ideal lamp for all 'round household use. The Perfection Oil Heater and the Rayo Lamp, combining as they do to make the house warm and cheerful, are valuable additions to any home, and no household should be without them.
