That every miner of the ntimher

Tl'e force of the explorion was
terrific and the hope that any
one could survive such a shock
is beyond belief.

Ir. 1'. Clarke Hyde, Indicted on a

Thomas II. Swope, today heard read
all of the direct testimony given by
the accused phvMcian at the first trial
of his case. Only u little of his cross
examination hud been read when
court adjourned until Monday.
The most Interestiiu part of the
entire cross examinationthat relat
ing to cyanide purchases had Just
been entered Into when adjournment
time came. Prosecutor C onkling was
eager to leave this feature of the testi
mony In the minds of the Jury over
Sunday and lie read straight ahead
for some t m minutes after adjourn

In keeping with the ruling of the
supreme court, testimony regarding
Thomas llunton's death, the typhoid
epidemic In the Swope home, and the
givinn of a capsule to Margaret
Swope, wus excluded from the rend
ing. Dr. Hydes' story was a general de
nial of all the charges against him.
Its Introduction was pleasing to the
defense. It Is improbable now that
Dr. Hyde will take the witness stand,
his narrative already being in the
Jury's hands, on the other hand the
.state says If he does not testify he
will create the Impression that he

BOTH DEMOCRATS AND
"REPUBLICANS CONFIDENT
Two United States Senators
WilLBe Named By Advisory
Vote For First Time in His
tory of Politics,
l ll.v Morning Joiin.ul Sr'iid brie-ed lre.
I'liocniz, Ariz., Dec. !. Arizona's
llrst state election will be held next
Tuesday. In addition to all state and
county officers to Ve chosen, two
United States senutors will be named
by advisory vote, and the one mem
ber of congress allowed by tile en
abling act will be elected. It will be
the first election in any slate where
two I'nited Htates senators will be se
lected by an advisory vote of the
people and It Is predicted In some
quarters that one will be a democrat
and the other a republican. Most of
the candidates for the legislature,
which makes the actual selection are
pledged to abide by the advisory vote.
Owing to the fact that there has
been no registration for more than
a year the vote will be lighter thun
usual, many of those registered hav
ing removed from the state. Upon
the comparatively small number of
electors remaining, the republicans
base their hope of winning, as they
believe that a large majority of these
who have removed, would have vot
ed the democratic ticket.
Tile (ainpaig.i has been made
largely along personal lines, both
parties having adopted progressive
platloims. However, Ihe fact that tin;
democrats framed the progressive
constitution and tile republicans op
posed It has been used as the chief
campaign argument by the dcinoopitx.
Former opposition to the constitution
lias to some degree been offset ty the
republican platform, which in some
Instances promises more In the way
of progressive legislation than that
of tlie democrats.
The democratic candidates for the
I'nited States senate are Marcus A.
Smith, of Tucton. for twenty years
past, Arizona's delegate In congress,
and Henry V. Ashnrst of Preseott.
on the other side are italph II.
Cameron, of Flagstaff, present dele
gale ,and lloval A. Smith, a mining
man of Hlsbee. Smith conducted Cam
eron's winning campaign on the Is
sue of statehood three years ago.
The contest for governor has been
spirited. George W. P. Hunt id' fllobc,
the democratic choice, was president
of the constitutional convention. His
opponent, Kdwnrd F. Wells, of Pres
eott. a pioneer resident and former
supreme court judge, was also a
member of Ihe convention. Moth men
arp Independently wealthy. Wells be
ing rated as one of the richest men
in the state. Hunt declares he will
carrv ten Of the fourteen counties.
The candidates for congress are
Carl Hayden of phoenix and John S,
Williams of Tombstone, both young
men and classed as progressives.
Sidney P. Osborne, democrat, and
J. Fred Cleveland, republican. of
Phoenix, are the candidates for sec
retury of state. Osborne Is the young
est candidate on the state ticket, be
ing 2S years old. Cleveland is ex
peeled to lead the republican ticket.
other state officers to be elected
are three supreme court Judges; three
corpora tlon commissioners. jit ate
treasurer, superintendent of public
Instruction, attorney general and au
ditor. The socialists have a full state
;ioket, but will poll only n light
vote.

Mr. Murkhart's chances of election,
there Is a strong possibility that It
may be overcome before the cunvuss

While the work Is apparently pro
