Many Organizations and Associations
Arranging For Annual Meetings
Here Coming Summer
(From Saturday's Daily.)
Prescott as a conTention city is
fast assuming such favored regard
as to give it preference over all other
Arizona communities. Whether in
mid-winter or the sultry glow of
summer its climatic attractions arc
pronounced ideal, while in accommo
dations for the hundreds to view the
fascinating scenery that no other sec
tion of Arizona can claim are peer
less. In harmony with its location
and accomodations for any number
of organized bodies, fraternal, poli
tical or social this year will signalize
the coming of the greatest number
of people in the history of the city.
Among the organizations coming
are the Knights of Columbus, who
will gather in state council on June
17 and IS. On this occasion it is
expected that the minimum attend
ance will reach close to one thousand
people mainly those affiliated with
the organization.
During the same month, the Royal
Arch Chapter of Masons of Arizona
will meet and it is expected that many
prominent Arizonans will attend.
Beginning early in June the stu
dents of the University of Arizona,
estimated at twenty-five will arrive
to take a course of practical instruct
ion in the Summer Mining School.
They will remain until August. Prof.
Tolman, territorial geologist, and di
rector of the mining department with
Prof. Bice, mining instructor of the
University and several friends will

At a date to be selected later, the
"Prescott Auto Club will announce

similiar organizations throughout the
territory to participate in. when it i
expected several hundred machines
will be congregated to take trips to
the Verde Valley, over the territorial
highway to Humboldt, around the
famous 45-mile loop and last, but not
least a trip to the Grand Canyon
over the new Ash Fork route.
Reese M. Ling, the energetic presi
dent of the University of Michigan
Alumni Association of Arizona, yes
terday stated that he is arranging
to call that body together in this
city during the summer, and from the
large number of Arizona attorneys
who, were graduated from the above
institution the occasion promises to
be a memorable one.
President Ling will initiate the
movement during the next few days
and is confident of bringing together
on the first occasion a large repre
sentation. Possibly in August, the tri-county

held in Flagstaff. Over 150 edu
cators will be in attendance at the
lowest estimate.
It is .practically assured from a re
cent canvass made of all cities that
the next convention of the Arizona
Bankers Association will deliberate
for three days in Prescott. Announce
ment will hi made to this effect in
the next few days when the execu

Before the year passes it is said
the Grand Lodge of Masons of Ari

city. The beautiful temple of Aztlau

other reason than to inspect the
Governor R. E. Sloau will probably
move his executive offices to the
city, his home, for at least three
months this summer, advices to this
effect being received a few days
ago. Secretary Geo. U. Young a
few days ago also stated that he
will come to reside at his mining
camp, in the Sierra Prietta moun
tains, a few miles east of the city.
The Summer Colony is now assured
of harboring a great number of vis
itors, in fact, it is believed, from
recent advices received from Phoe
nix alone, the spacious retreat will
be fully occupied.
With private homes entertaining
friends, the season promises to bo
the most -auspicious in the history
of this city. Already the exodus
from the south lias started, and an
other pleasing feature is that many

Cherry Creek district, according
to a statement made yesterday by J.
R. Boyer, the mining man, is pass
ing through a very active career in
development at several camps. At
the Climax works, L. X. Wombacher
is sinking, and is reported to be matt
ing splendid headway. He has re
cently placed several men at work
and the showing is better than ever
The Arizona Gold company, under
the superintendency of J. S. Sessions,
is sinking below the oOO foot level,
with machine drills. This method
was recently introduced and the work
is progerssing rapidly and satisfac
torily. William Chrismnn is preparing to
resume on the Buffalo Lime Cap
group, one of the best looking gold
.properties in the district.
The Hillside Consolidated company
will resume in a short time, under
new management, which is due to
the closing of negotiations for the
taking over of the interests of J. H.
Tribby, until recently general man
ager. Mr. Tribby is in Cincinnati at
Negotiations started some time ago
for taking over the Etta mines, are
reported to have been closed, and
the new company is preparing to
start work in a short time.
Mr. Boyer states that a general
movement is to be started to secure
the Territorial highway through that
district, the large mining interests
and other pursuits asking for this
recognition, which they claim is due
them in preference to the Copper
Canyon route, which has but few hab
itations for over twentv-five miles.
Perkins and King round up will start
May 15tli at the Perkins River Ranch
and work up the Verde River.
Prescott, Ariz,
(From Saturdav's Daily.)
"The whisper of a beautiful wo
man can be heard farther than the
loudest call of duty."
Unreasonable as this mav seem it
is nevertheless true. Ask any lawyer
if it is possible to get a jury to
convict a woman even though the
evidence is all against her? And
worse than that when the defendant
is a beautiful woman the prosecuting
attorney's life is in danger.
A case of this sort has just come
to light in Prescott and despite the
strenuous efforts of the principals to
keep the matter quiet the facts have
leaked out. Owing to the social
prominance and hitherto clean rec
ords of the interested parties their
names will be withheld. This is done
at the request of the trial judge
who fears that publicity will inter
fere with the ends of justice.
A well-known club man has been
sued for breach of promise by one
of this season's most charming de
butantes. By the employment of
"John Doe" proceedings the jury
was impaneled and the case well on
its way before the plaintiff entered
the court room.
It is useless to try and describe
the exceptional beauty of the young
lady all of us know, "that words
only caricature a beautiful woman"
and the effect of her charms upon
the jury is the best endorsement of
the oft repeated story, "that she
is the most beautiful woman in the
When she was sworn bv the clerk
she stood with her back to the jury
box and it was only when she took
her seat on the witness stand that
the twelve had an opportunity to
gaze on her fascinating features. The
effect was wonderful every man put
up his hand to re-arrange his neck
tie, there was a concerted movement
of them all as they straightened up
in their chairs. Twelve hands shot
up to ten heads of hair (numbers
. and 11 were hopelessly bald) and
hirsute adornment winch was of neg-
ligible value a few moments before
suddenly became more valuable than
a diamond tiara.
The judge rapped sharply for or
der or according to the defendant's
attorney to attract the attention of
the smiling plaintiff to himself.
Cries of "Ivnch him" echoed from
the jury box; the audience became
unmanageable and threw the bailiff
out of the room, ad it not been
for the efforts of the defendant's at
torneys there is no question but that
he would have been roughly bandied.
(It is rumored that the cause of the
defendant's refusal to marry the
young woman is due to the fact that
he already has a wife living in Bos
ton). During this scene, which was most
certainly a disgrace to our courts,
his honor the judge proposed to the
plaintiff and was, we believe, ac
cepted. Just what fate is in store for the
defendant will not be made public
until Wednesday night when the Mu-.
sic Section of the Monday Club will
present the entire Operetta, "Trial
by Jury" at the Elk's Theater.
The cast has already appeared in
these columns. In addition to the
above tuneful Operetta, which is
one of the best written by Gilbert
and Sullivan, the authors of Pina
fore, etc. the Lady of Shallot, by
Wilfred Bendall, will be presented a't
the same time and by the same or
ganization. ANTI-GAMBLING- LAW
SPOKANE, Wash., May 3. Com
missioner Hayden, head of the De
partment of Public Safety, has
served notice on the betting element
in Spokane that any attempt to
operate an open pool room or hand
books here in connection with the
new race track to be opened on the
Idaho side, twenty-two miles east
of this city, on August 20, for a
thirty-five-day meeting, will run
afoul the state law. He declares
that the department will stop all
forms of gambling, such as betting
on ball games, races, cards, dice and
other devices, adding that not only
will the keepers ad players be ar
rested, but also the owners or lessees
of buildings in which gambling is
permitted will be prosecuted under
the anti-gambling law, which de
fines betting as a misdemeanor, pun
ishable by imprisonment in the state
penitentiary for not more than live
years. Frank W. Smith of Spokane,
secretary of the racing association,
says that while there are no laws
in Idaho prohibiting pool selling, the
organization will not be identified
with books or pools either at the
Post Falls track, Spokane or else--where.

MrsSerina Walker Dies
Suddenly at Home
In Humboldt
(From Saturday's Daily)
Mrs. Serina Walker of Humboldt,
was stricken by a sudden attack of
apoplexy yesterday morning at 10:30
o'clock and passed away a few"
minutes afterward The news of her
death was a sad shock to her
friends and acquaintances and oc
curring while she was evidently en
joying the best of health is all the
more to be regretted, fane had been
a resident of that place since the
death of her husband which occurred
just one year ago on the Upper "Verde,
and was at the home of her son
when the summons came.
Mrs. Walker was a woman very
much endeared to all. Her beautiful
character and Christian life made
her a favorite, and sorrow is ex
pressed over her loss, fane leaves
seven children, among whom are her
sons, Thomas of Humboldt, Edward
of Flagstaff, one at Winkleman and
one at Jerome whose names were
not learned. Mrs. Thomas Farley, a
daughter, resides at Crown King, an
other daughter resides at Globe and
a third at Winkleman. All have
been informed of their affliction, and
are expected to arrive in this city
in a few days.
Mrs. Walker was 63 vears old and
had been a resident of the Upper
Verde for twenty-one years, arriving
from lexas, where she was born.
She will be laid away at Cottonwood
beside the body of her husband at a
date to be announced later. Lester
Ruffner conducting the funeral.
( (From Thursday's Daily.)
The remains of the late Riley Pat
ton, who was accidentally electro
cuted in the United Verde mine,
Monday afternoon, were brought to
the pity yesterday from Jerome, and
interment was made in the Knights
of Pythias cemetery. The respect ex
tended the deceased in the funeral
cortege to the depot at Jerome was
a beautiful tribute to his memory,
fully 1,000 people following the body
to the train. It was one of the
largest funerals ever held in that city.
On the arrival of the train in this
city, the body was taken to the
cemetery for burial, the pallbearers,
who came from Jerome, were L. .M.
Coleman, C. E. Hughes, John Opman,
John JCivokovich, Chas. P. Jolly and
Ed. Kovacovich. The rites of the
Knights of Pythias were extended
over the grave, Chacellor Commander
L. M. Coleman officiating, while the
committal service was extended by
Rev. O. M. Andrews of the Method-:s-t
church of Jerome.
Among the mourning relatives were
his wife and three children, a brother,
Joseph Patton, his wife and family,
and Mr. and Mrs. George Pruett, the
latter a sister. C. T. Lynch and J.
W. Hubbard, with many others, were
also of the funeral party.
Mr. Patton met his death while
walking along the 300 foot drift of
the United Verde mine, his wet cloth
ing coming in contact with the trol
ley wire and the motor car at the
same time. A current, estimated at
240 volts, passed through his should
er, and death was instantaneous. Ef
forts to resuscitate him proved hope
less, and he never showed the slight
est symptoms of recovering.
Mr. Patton was formerly a resid
dent of this city, and was well known
to many as a splendid young man. Inj
has home town he was admired and
had not an enemy. His loss is deep
ly deplored and his bereaved relatives
have the sympathy of all.
(From Thursday's Daily.)
At a special meeting of the Board
of Supervisors yesterday, it was de
cided to repair the road from Tubbs
Springs, on the boundary line of
Maricopa county, near Wickenburg,
and to continue the work to the
north. C. W. Piatt was placed in
charge, appearing before the board
to outline the work and to give def
inite details on the cost and other
information. The heaviest work will
be located at the Yarncll hill, where
the grade will be changed in sev
eral places. The established route
will then be followed through Peeples
Valley until Kirkland Valley is reach
ed. At this place two "roads are
available, one through Skull Valley
and the other through Copper Basin.
Jt is probable that the auto road
will go through Skull Valley, while
other vehicles will traverse the Cop
per Basin road.
The Maricopa Supervisors are fin
ishing road work to Tubbs Springs,
and in a few days a good road will
be open from Phoenix to Wickenburg.
With the lavapai end repaired, as
outlined, a fairly good roadway will
be available between Prescott and
Phoenix. The work authorized by the
Yavapai Supervisors is expected to
be completed early in July.

(From Friday a Daily)
Prof. E. R. Rice, of the faculty of
the University of Arizona, special
instructor in the Mining Department,
arrived in the city yesterday from
Tucson, to perfect arrangements for
establishing the Summer School of
Mines, as announced would be car
ried out, several weeks ago, by Dr.
C. F. Tolman, when the latter de
livered a series of lectures on min
eralogy and other subjects, in this
Prof. Rice will perfect all details
for the school, which will be started
on June 3rd and end on August 1st.
The care and accommodation of about
twenty students of the University,
with the location of the seat of in
struction, and other matters, will be
considered, when Prof. Rice returns
south. He will accompany the party
from Tucson.
As tentatively outlined, it is his
intention to make an investigation
of the camp of the Poland Mining
company, to investigate accommoda
tions and to ascertain the mining
conditions. If that point is select
ed, about three weeks will be devoted
to imparting practical experience to
the students of the University who
will attend. The mining company
has generously tendered the use of
the mines and buildings for the lm
portant work. Afterward it is the
intention of Prof. Rice to bring the
students to this city, and frequent
trips will be made to the mines ad
jacent. None will be admitted' to
the research investigations but stu
dents of the institution. The young
men will probably be quartered in
the Summer Colony tract. Prof.
Rice left yesterday for Poland and
will return today, when a definite
decision of the site of the mining
school will be announced.

While In the city yesterday from the
Camp Verde Indian reservation. Tay
lor P. Gabbard. agent In charge,
stated that the Wallapal squaw, who
was bitten by a hydrophobia skunk,
last fall, succumbed to the deadly ven
om a few months ago, while another
squaw, who was taken to Los Angeles
anil treated at the Pasteur Institute,
had not suffered and Is In better
health than before she was bitten.
The one who died suffered excruici
ating agonies, and was taken to a re
mote place by her tribesmen and there
left to end her days without any care
or medical attention. The conclusion
of Mr. Gabbart Is that the method of
treatment of the bite of the hydro
phobia skunki at the Institute is ef
ficacious. The squaw who died could
not be persuaded to submit to treat
ment by the paleface.
Both were bitten within a few min

Tampa, Fla. In a letter from this
City, Mrs. E. C. Corum writes: "I was
all weakened and worn out with wo
manly troubles. My husband brought
me some Cardui as a tonic, and, from
the first day, It seemed to help.

Cardui acts specifically on the weak
ened womanly organs, strengthening
the muscles and nerves, and building
them up to health.
It helps to refresh the worn-out ner
vous system and relieves the effects of
overwork, both mental and physical.
Fifty years' successful use fully
prove the merit of this purely vege
table, tonic remedy for women.
In every community, there live somt

owned by John Lawler, is among the
most important of recent considera

but it is probable, in a short time,
that water power will be substituted.
A survey is being made for a pipe

miles distant, where the flow is suf
ficient to handle all reduction facil

the mine and camp. This water will
be brought on a gravity basis, and
is one of the greatest assets of the

toward making investigations in Cali
