Major Doran was born at ;cw, FhiladLlphia, Ohio, on July 11, 1S40. In 1860 he left that State and came to Colorado, when the western spirit seized him and with others 'he passed through Tucson in the latter part of tl at year for California to pursue his vocation as a millwright, carpenter and bridge builder. When the Civil War broke out, he was one of the first to enlist at the Statc capital ana was assigned to Co. F, California in-, crs arc being picked up at such a rapid fantry, U. S.

Later this command was shifted to Texas, to return to Tucson two years afterward. So it may be observed that Major Doran in reality was a pioneer, and his recital of the experiences of that faraway day was most thrilling and interesting. lie was honorably discharged at Tucson, when he returned to California to en gage in business as a merchant and to establish saw mills at different points near mining town. In 1868 he resumed his trade, and was given large contracts in bridge construction for the Central Pacific, then entering the Statc. The Lure of Arizona. Major Doran retraced his steps to Arizona in 1876, when he slated lie "hit the trail" to go into camp for good. He located at the small camp of the Silver King, the most famous of mine in the West in its day, which was situated in Pinal county. He was appointed mine superintendent as well as construction engineer of the mill to be built, and in this dual capacity the wonderful record made by this silver producer still lives ana is kindly cherished for the capability of this man. Oilier Arizona mine fields attracted the attention of this practical operator, and he became in terested in nearly every section in the years which followed. His judg ment was weighed with high regard by capital and his success was well known. In Political Life. There arc very few Arizonaus who attained the prominence in official life which the deceased enjoyed. In 1882 he was elected sheriff of Pinal count' 2nd made a commendable record. Succeeding years found him a mem ber of the territorial board of equali zation for two terms under Gocrnor Wolfcy's administration. In 1894 he was elected couucilinan-iit-largc 5 11 Arizona to the upner branch of 1 tic legislature, a distinction which he won through his splendid name as a constructive statesman and which was iclievcd of any sectional considera tion whatever. He graced the legisi lature later in again being elected to the tipper house, and for two terms he was in the assembly. In this latter duty he was the first lawmaker to urge the creation of the board of con trol, and this official body is still re tained under statehood by another name. 1'or sccn years he was a lieutenant colonel of the National Guard of rizoiia. and this military bod owes its fine organization to his foresight, hich was intended to be for defensive purposes solely. The deceased also was a commissioner from rizona to the Chicago World's l air, as well did he fill olhcr offices, ckclie and appointive.

FUEL ADMINISTRATION PHOEXIX, Feb. 14 National Fuel Administrator Garfield considers the national shipbuilding campaign some thing that touches very inlunatcly :.nd materially upon his own sphere of activities. So he has wired the Statc Council of Defense urging that Arizona do her part in furnishing the necessary workmen. "Ships cannot move without coal," sr.ys the fuel administrator, "but neither can coal move without ships. We must have ships to carry freight away from the seaboard terminals, or coal will be tangled up again, as it was three weeks ago, tangled up with cut-bound freight and unable to reach the ships waiting for" fuel, to enable them to carry out cargoes from the congested tracks. With plent of ships to keep the terminals clear, we shall be able to move coal to the places where it is most needed, and we shall have coal enough to move In fact, the faster wc move it, the faster wc can produce it, for the mines load directly from tipple to car. When there are no cars, they halt their out put, for bituminous coal cannot be stored at the mines. "Every man, woman and child in the United States has at least a tench of war hardships through in terruption f the coal supply. Wc all know now that more hardships will recur unless wc remedy the mmlainciital conditions. That means thai we arc all interested in building ships.

To maintair. the American army in France 100 pounds of gross tonnage a day must be landed at French ports for each man, according to Captain Earl J Zimmerman, executive officer in the depot quartermasters' department here. "The American people have no conception of the quantity of sup plies needed for the men 'over there'. said Captain Zimmerman, "nor of the difficulty in getting it to them. For example it takes 23,000,000 pounds of frozen beef each month to feed a million soldiers." In explaining the food suppply of the American soldiers abroad and the manner in which it must be sent, Captain Zimmerman gave a general picture of the difficulties of the ouartcrmastcrs' corps in constantly maintaining a sufficient quantity of food. According to- his statement, the men iii France arc on a "garrison ra tion" the same as soldiers at canton mcnts in this country. This ration is five pounds a man, each day. This weight, however, includes eating ut ensils and container. For a million men 150,000,000 pounds of rations a month arc required, amounting to 4,000 carloads. i. list of the food required for a million men for 30 days would include the following: 23,000.000 pounds of frozen beef. 38,500,000 pounds of flour. 6,000,000 pounds of bacon. 2,000,000 cans of beef. 1,(KX),000 cans corned beef. 1,000,000 cans corned beef hash. 3,000,000 pounds of sugar. 2,400,000 pounds of coffee. 972.000 pounds of butter. At all times, Captain Zimmerman said, a 20-day supply is maintained in France. (From Saturday's Daily! Prcscott will have no Chautauqua this summer. fThis decision was reached at a re cent meeting of the Chautauqua com. inittcc of the Chamber of Commerce, one of the representatives of the Chautauqua organization having been in the city this week to talk things over with the committee. In view 01 the fact that the nation is at war and the financial drain upon the populace is somewhat heavy, it was decided to dispense with the big entertainment event and let the time and financial resources of the citizens of the coun ty be turned in other directions. While it was shown that the Chautauqua movement was undoubt edly one which tended toward the moral uplift of the respective com munities, it was decided that inas much as Uncle Sam has something of a gigantic "uplift" mocincnt on his hands right now, it was the duty of his nephews and nieces to conserve their encrgie for boosting the work of uplifting tlie kaiser from his present job of Prussianizing the universe. In all probability a lyccum course will be arranged for, a number of good concerts, lectures, etc, to be brought here at intervals of several weeks apart. The lyccum numbers will be furnished by the same com pany which provided the Chautauqua attractions 111 seasons past. 2,600 PERSONS SIGNED ROAD PETITION (From Friday's Daily) That the citizens and taxpayers of Yavapai county want the short line road built to Jerome is a foregone conclusion. This matter has been hanging fin for some time, but it was left to the present administration of the Yavapai County Chamber of Commerce to de finitely ascertain the number of tax pavers and citizens who desired this road biiilt, and the amount of taxable wealth they represent. To that end. petitions were recentlv circulated throughout the county, with the re- Milt that 2,6'K) taxpayers signed this petition, representing $86,001,000 worth of the taxable wealth of the county. In other words, four-fifths of the entire taxable wealth of Yava pai county stands behind the project. The original petition will be filed with the board of supervisors, while tv. exact copy of the same will be sent lc the Commission of Statc Institu tions.

I'he largest red-light districts left in the State arc said to be at Jerome and Superior. The superintendent of public health wrote to both of these cities last night, warning them to close at once. Un addition.lQ prohibiting houses of prostitution and forbidding physicians to iss'ie medical certificates to prostt tutcs, the regulations adopted by thc board of health contained drastic pro visions which are expected to be of great value to the civil population as well as to the army Evcrvonc knowing of a case of ve nercal disease is obliged to report it. to some health otlicer. rnysicians may report cases under their own confidential numbers, insuring com plete secrecy for their patients, which secrecy will be observed if the patient! continues treatment until curcu, or at least rendered non-infcctioiis. In case a patient stops treatment too soon, his name will be sent to the State board, which will at once call on the ,po!ice power of the Statc to bring him to time. All persons arrested on charges ot prostitution, vagrancy or uisorucri conduct are required to undergo a medical examination, and if found to be diseased will be treated until they are no longer infectious. This pro vision, according to Lieutenant Po pcnoe, is one to which the war de partment attaches great importance. Any diseased 'person who cannot 1 -.t t...qh.innt fi-mii n nrivntf till V-' afford treatment trom a private pii-; sician will be treated free of charge by a county or city health officer. Phvsicians are enjoined to find out, whenever possible, where their pa- . .1 . . t. . licnts contracted disease, so uiai me source of infection may be traced and suppressed. J'hyatcians arc likewise instructed to give their patients information as to how to avoid spreading disease. the State board of health will aid in this educational campaign by distri buting pamphlets prepared by the Council of Xational Defense for this purposs. Any person who prescribes for ve nereal disease, or any druggist who iclls a patent medicine for this pur pose, except on a physician's pre scription, renders himself liable to tine or imprisonment. This regula tion is expected by the war depart ment to be of great value to the army, ir pre-, rutins soldiers from indulging ii self-medication, whose consequcne es are frequently cry injurious. Proper precautions will be taken by the board of health to prevent persons infected with enercal diseases from handling food, acting as barbers, or ingaging in any occupations where they arc likely to infect others.

HEALTHY MINING OUT LOOK AS ZINC CLIMBS (From Saturday's Daily.) Standardizing of zinc at 12 cents a pound, this action having been offt- cially proclaimed by the government, isv proving a boon to mining in this section, and is receiving expressions ' of commendation by many who arc operating this character of a mineral property, as well arc those deeply in- ,crcstcd whcrc ,1C COInplcx output ,as this ..cta! as a contcnt.

A new compressor is to be installed at once, while generally speaking regeneration of affairs will follow at once, by which heavy production will be given, and on a basis by winch security will be afforded in carrying out large development. "This con sideration toward zinc is deserved and of course welcomed, mcaning as it does that our interest arc being considered as justly as arc othct minerals, which are climbing up to their proper rating," said Mr. Gilles pie ycstcrday. The Copper King, a holding of thc Hillside, since being revived a short time ago, has undergone thorough evnloration and now emerges into rating of a high class proposition. Its raw product with zinc values csiau- lished on a nermancnt basis as an nounccd, will easily average $100 pet ton. The new wagon road being built from the works to Hillside, on thc railroad. 30 miles long, is an ex pensive undertaking, but the outlay fully justifies thc expense, and par ticularly so with this metal at a standard price.

(From Saturday's Daily) Patriotism which counts for some thing is the impressive scene to at tract attention as well as sincere in terest as onc loiters along Montezuma street, and beholds thc sacrificing American woman doing her bit foi the boys at the front. There is si lence in thc large room, except for the burring of- thc machine as thc work goes ahead, tempered with a spirit of faith and affection for the great cause. There is heard nothing of the revengeful or thc venom of hatred, but a determined band of the gentler sex is working with a will and ardor which reflects a profound .and beautiful belief for the cause of loyal ty, as each is seen adorned with thc familiar symbol of her duty thc benevolent Red Cross.
