CFrom Friday's Daily.) Yesterday's session of the United States court was given over to the consideration of the damage suit instituted by Ed Carrow of King man against the A. T. & S. F. Rail road Company, the plaintiff demand ing $20,000 for injuries which he al leges he received while traveling on that road. This is the first jury case to be taken up at the present session. The plaintiff is represented by E. S. Clark. The road's attorney, Paul Burks, is here to look after the de fense Carrow's complaint states that while making a cattle shipment, he was riding'in a caboose on a freight train. When the train reached a point near Odamana, the train stopped suddenly and the plaintiff was thrown out of his scat, sustaining in juries to the head and shoulders. Dr. T. R. White of Kingman was one of the chief witnesses for the plaintiff, testifying as to the nature of the in juries sustained by Carrow.

Charles Beck, a young'ilian who was held on a charge of failing to register, ;was yesterday released from custody and the case against him dismissed, arrangements having been made for him to register. A similar case against Albert Vigo was also dismissed under the same circumstances. PINTO BEAN IS BEING BOOSTED BY SANTA FE (From Saturday's uaily) The railroads arc boosting pinto beans as an Arizona food crop, co operating with the United States food administration which started a movement in that direction lately by taking over more than 600 car loads of pintos for the eastern markets, paying the growers eight cents a pound. Heretofore pinto beans have been a drug on the market, except in Arizona and other Southwestern states where they grow, for want of an introduction. Xow the pinto can be found on the menu of every well managed restaurant. H. M. Baincr of Topcka, indus trial and agricultural agent of the Santa Fc, recently "loaned" to the food administration, has prepared a bulletin about growing and handling pinto beans, which will be distrib uted free through the local banks. Following arc the good points of the pinto beans, brought out in the bul letin: They arc bringing good prices. They arc as good as any other bean. They arc aiv excellent non-perishable cash crop'.. They arc a safe dry land crop. They arc a profitable irrigated crop. They do well as a sod crop. They arc a good rotation crop. They are especially profitable for wheat land that has failed. The straw is good for livestock. The bean division of the food ad ministration' at Denver has -arranged to sell pinto bean seed to growers at cost $8.80- per hundred plus freight charges. It is suggested by the food administration that growers place their orders for seed through the county agricultural agent. The seed will be shipped from storage houses located in various parts of the bean area, but orders must be placed through the Denver headquarters. MOHAVE MINING MEN CLOSE BIG COPPER DEAL (From Saturday's Daily) One of the largest mining deals closed in this county in recent years is that wherein Messrs. Mclver and Long and their associates in the United Eastern Co., at Oatiuan have purchased outright all interests of the Kay Copper Company, in Black Canyon district, the consideration being over $150,000, it is reported. This transaction was consummated last-week, and immediately after pos session was given the new operators started to operate with a large force of miners. The Kay is an old-operated copper-gold property, and has been a heavy shipper to Glendalc on the S. T P. & P. road, by wagon freighting, its ore content being un usually high to withstand the haul of over 60 miles. Development shows a shaft of oVer 3S0 feet in depth and other workings aggregating over 2, 000 feet. It is situated in the heart of Black Canyon district, and has been active at intervals for the past 20 years. It is stated that the new investors arc bringing in some of the heaviest and most expensive of machinery and already a camp is being built to ac commodate a large number of em ployees. The early building of the Prcscott and Phoenix short line rail road is one of the inducements for this bitr deal to be closed up, and after construction begins it is also assured a reduction plant will be built Water is abundant from the Agua Fna river, which courses through the group, while timber is also available in inexhaustible quan titics from the Bradshaws close by. The Kay also is ideally located for all-year operations, being some- dis tancc from the snowshed. The fact of the United Eastern entering that field has occasioned other mining men to appear, and more deals arc pending. U. S. GRAND JURY INDICTS JEROME HOP SMOKER (From Saturday's Daily) Lee Hcc, a celestial living in Jer ome, has been indicted on two differ ent charges by the federal grand jury. Lee is charged in one indict ment with importing and using op ium, and the other indictment charges him with an attempt to bribe a fed eral officer. The Chinaman is said to have attempted to slip Deputy U. S. Marshal Harry Carlson a piece of change in event the latter would re lease him at the time of his arrest, and forget all about the matter. Lcc is now at liberty under bond. Sentences Are Passed A number of sentences were handed out yesterday afternoon by Judge Rankin. Albert Vigo was given ten days whqn he entered a plea of guilty to a charge of introducing booze into an Indian reservation. T. De lano was sentenced to jail for ten days when he pleaded guilty to a charge of bringing whisky into the State. Both men had been in jail several months and the court believed that the had about expiated their shortcomings. Joe Byrnes and John Gotowsky were handed three months in the Prcscott jail for failure to register for the draft. Spot Austin, who was! accused of a similar misdemeanor,! cot off with four months in iail. An dreas Gomez,also accused of neglect-' ing to put his name in the big book last June was sentenced to jail for one day, having been in confinement for several! months while awaiting trial. PRESCOTT GETS PUBLICITY IN BUFFALO (From Sunday's Daily.) It is impossible to keep a good town, like a good man, down. Now and anon Prcscott breaks into print in unexpected places, the latest pub licity being in the effete East to bt geographically accurate in Buffalo, Xew York, in the Evening News. Here is what that medium has to say in a recent issue about the mile high city: "Prcscott, Arizona, is one of the little southwestern cities that stilt labor under the reputation made by Arizona movies and Arizona fiction in the magazines, while as a matter of fact they arc more prosaic than Iowa and more law-abiding than New York. The most stimulating influence there is the climate and the most ex hilarating factor is the altitude. Nowadays both Arizona and New Miexico, the last two strongholds of the old frontier, arc numbered among the prohibition states, and what is a frontier without the old-time saloon? "Prcscott lies on a high, dry pla teau, with a fringe of blue mountains in the distance, bathed in the heady Arizona air. This atmosphere seems to stimulate the natives to progress, for they have numerous and unusual claims to notice "One of them is a pretty city addi tion, where the municipality will give a free lot to anyone who will build a $300 house on it. The lot is not only a free gift, but it is free from tax payment as well. Thus do enter prising frontiersmen encourage city growth. "Another unique institution in Prcscott is the Home for Aged Pion eers, where these veterans of the stir ring times of Indian warfare, desert thirst, and lawless men may live a peaceful old age. There is a fine righteousness about this idea of pen sioning the veterans of the 'Legion that never was listed,' who none tliQj less fought one of the hardest bat tles in American history. "One of Prcscott's principal claims to fame was her late mayor, the widely known Bucky O'Neil, pros pector, cowpunchcr, officer of the Rough Riders, journalist, frontiers man and all-around man. They like to point to him as a typr of tile man hood of Arizona. In the plaza there is a statue of O'Xcil by Borglum, showing him in old-time frontier cos tume, sitting at case on a rearing caytisc, looking over the city to the open lands he used to ride." NABBED A HUN WITH THE AMERICAN ARMY IX FRAXCE, March 23. A patrol of four Americans early this morn ing crawled nearly a mile, ap proached a Gcrmair listening post from the rear and jumped on a Ger man there, throttling him before he had commenced making an outcry. They returned to their line as quickly: as they went, bringing the prisonei j with them. He vas put through an! examination by the intelligence officer. YOUNGSTEINFELD LOSES FIGHT FOR MPON WEALTHY TUCSON YOUTH WHOSE FIGHT TO EVADE SERVICE WAS CARRIED TO WASHINGTON, MUST ENTER FIGHTING FORCE PHOEXIX, March 21. Orders were received Monday at the State house and by the district board from Provost Marshal General Crowdcr at Washington to proceed with the in duction of Harold Stcinfcld of Tuc son into the national army. This doses an incident that has re ceived much publicity and which has been carried through the local and district boards to the president of the United States. Harold Stcinfcld is the only son of Albert Stcinfcld of Tucson, said to be the wealthiest man of that city and one of the richest in the State. Be cause of the wealth of the Stcinfcld family and the vigor with which the attempt to induct the son into the na tional army has been fought, the case has attracted much attention. Young Stcinfcld, who is 23 years old, was drafted last summer, but claimed exemption on the ground that his personal attention was necessary in the conduct of his father's exten sive business affairs. He was given 60 days in which to arrange his busi ness affairs. But before the 60 days had expired, the quota had been filled, and the extension of 60 days had been lengthened to eight months. When the new classification sys tem was adopted and a questionnaire was sent to HJarold Stcinfcld, he claimed total exemption for the sami.i reason as bctore. lnc exemption claim was denied by the local board and also by the district board to which it was carried. Francis J. Hency, of California was then re tained to fight the case, and the mat ter was taken to Washington. So strong was the fight made against the denial of exemption that a mai. was sent to Tucson from Washing ton and carried all the papers in the case to the national capital. In spite of all the efforts made, young Stcinfcld lost the case, and the order to induct him into the service came Monday, thus closing a most mtcrcstinc incident. Hency. lor Stcinfcld, claimed that a political fight was being made against him, This was denied. DEATH SUMMONS CALLS AWAY GOOD MAN W. B. Clark, one of thc best known and respected residents of this city, passed away yesterday afternoon at his home in East Sheldon street, as the result of an accident just a week previous, when he fell under his team sustaining injuries from which lock jaw developed on Friday last. While it was considered his injuries were not serious, complications arose. however, the fatal affliction uncxpec tcdly developing. Mr. Clark's death has caused uni vcrsal sorrow in this community, where he had resided since 1895. On his arrival in this section he bccam& interested in mining at Walker, and in other pursuits won thc good will of all for his honesty and upright dealings in various lines. This busi ness method he followed strictly in after years, and after removing to Prescott engaged in different call ings, alwavs maintaining a high re gard for thc interests of all with whom he was associated. Personally he was a kind and open-hearted mail, making many friends and not an cn cmy. Hc was born at Tenants Har bor, 5lainc, December 8, 1854, and was in his 64th year. He was a for mer superintendent of streets of this citv, and affiliated with thc Woodmen of the World. He is survived by his widow, a daughter, Mrs. John II. Robinson, of Prcscott, a son, Lloyd Clark, of Prcscott and a daughter, Mrs. Nattie Foley, of Pueblo, Colo. Thc funeral services will be held from thc home on East Sheldon street, Tuesday afternoon . Interment in Citizens' cemetery in family plot. BOYS TO LEAVE FOR CAMP MARCH 29th (From Friday's Daily The local exemption board yester day received word from l'hocnix that the first quota for the second draft would be expected to leave Prcscott on Friday, Mnrcli 29th, thc exact hour to be specified later. Thc board has accordingly mailed notices to all of the men to appear at ten o'clock on that day. Thirty men have been called, and of this number one-half will be chosen to make thc trip to Camp Funstoit. While it is not def initelyknown, it is believed they will leave thc city on thc north-bound train which passes here at 11:18 p. in., tliis having been the train taken by those who have already gone to Camp. Thc board has not yet made pub lic the system which will be used to eliminate thc extra 15 men who will not be used. Try a Journal-Miner waul ad. Lacey Draws Term In Slate Prison (From Saturday' Daily.) 'Frank Laccy, convicted this week on a manslaughter .charge, was yes tcrday morning sentenced to an in determinate term of from one to five years in the State prison, Judge Sweeney pronouncing the sentence at ten o'clock in the morning. Lacey, who was a deputy sheriff of Mohave county, shot and killed George Smith near Oatman last January while the latter was attempting to bring in a carload of whisky from 'Needles, Calif. Laccy did not appeal from the jury's verdict. A DISGRACEFUL OFFENSE Some of the newspapers of the State have given indefinite publicity to a most disgraceful affair on the occasion of the first visit of a party of Arizona State officials to San Diego on Feb- niary 22 to attend the review of the 158th, the Arizona regiment, at Camp Kearny. So far, the names of the offenders have been withheld. Certain of the officials participated in a drunken orgy in a room in the U. S. Grant Hotel, of an Ari- zona boy, a member of the offi- cers' training camp. Several soldiers in uniform were drunk and later made their appear- ance in a drunken condition in the lobby of the hotel. As a result two of the Arizona boys were relieved of duty in fr the training camp and demoted to the ranks, having lost an op- portunity in their military ca- reer which cannot come to them again. In the findings of the board which reduced them, it is stated of one of them that he was not drunk but "was blame- worthy, primarily in failing to stop civilians from using his room for improper purposes, thereby causing soldiers to dis- grace themselves and their uni- form." If this punishment, the sever- est that could have been visited upon this "young man, the per- manent blighting of his pros- pects at the beginning of a promising career, is to be borne by him, what punishment should be laid upon those "civilian" State officials who were present at. DarticiDated in and encour- aged this orgy? Much more will be heard of this matter; Arizona will have much to do before it has purged itself of this disgrace and this affront to the United States army. These offending civilians have so far taken refuge in sil- ence, but jt is the refuge of the ostrich. The offense is one which must be exposed and ex- piated. It' is' the kind of a crime that Prussianism would desire to be committed not only aealnst the 158th regiment, but every unit, of the American army. Phoenix Republican.

PROPOSITION TO ALTER LONG AND SHORT HAUL LEGISLATION FINDS NO FAVOR WITH TRANS PORTATION COMMITTEE. (From Saturday's Daily.) Several weeks ago the Phoenix Chamber of Commerce requested the local organization to go into the merits of a piece of legislation re cently introduced in congress by Congressman Hayden. The Yavapai C. of C referred the matter to W, A. Drake, chairman of the transpor tation committee, and at the meeting of Thursday evening. Dr. Drake made his report, the full text of the com munication being as follows: "Mr. President and Members Yavapai County Chamber of Commerce: "On March 7th, at a regular meet ing, you referred to the Transpor tation Committee a letter which, on February 23rd, President and Secre tary of the Phoenix Chamber of Commerce wrote you concerning a bill that Representative Hayden had introduced in the house of represen tatives in Washington, and was at tempting to put through. That was also accompanied by a letter ad dressed to the Phoenix Chamber of Commerce by the Arizona Corpora tion Commission. "The long and short of it is that the Corporation Commission, and president and secretary of the Phoe nix Chamber of Commerce, want the bill enacted into a law, and they want the Yavapai County Chamber of Commerce to help pay for it. In other words, they propose to use money to pay for legislation. "Years ago, congress enacted a law commonly called "The Long and Short Haul Law." which, of course.! provided that a railroad should! charge no higher sum for a short haul of commodities than a long haul over the same route. "At the same time, there were such conditions written into the law as to give the Interstate Commerce commission me power oi humus t.- ;ccptions when it thought it advisable after thorough investigation of thc particular case in point. "Now, we all know that members of thc Interstate Commerce Commis sion arc appointed by the president 'ot thc United Mates. He is thought to be a wise man, and that he will name wise men for this Commission, and it is further known that they will make no decision without care ful investigation and consideration!. and when these decisions arc made. they arc supposed to be wise, just, and for thc good of thc public at large, as well as for thc railroad car riers, and that their object is to de termine what is for the greatest good to thc greatest number. "Xow the whole object of thc Hay den bill is to take away from thc commission that option, make thc whole law obsolete, and place thc commission in contempt and without discretion. "You arc all more or less familiar with thc fact, that, in some cases. thc commiss;on pcrmittcd thc car . , r sum for c colnJI)od;t;cs bilicd to ;ntcr. moun,ajn ;Mts ian to lIlc Paciflc ,crlI1saia. Most of vou know why that was done, namely: to cu- able thc rail carriers to haul in com petition with water carriers. In other words, thc object of that rul ing was to permit rail carriers to haul some commodities to thc coast with little or no profits, in order that they might haul other things and de rive some revenue as compensation for the construction, maintenance land operation of thc transcontinental lines, their competitors, as above stated, being the water carriers. "The Hayden bill allows the com mission no discretion and -ill force a raise in thc rates to the coast, which cannot obtain when ships come again, or lower intcrmountain rates. "A raise of coast rates will not stop coast shipping. That docs not i . :.',,,,,,,,,,,' ..rnnti- pvri-nt that h Jnay pivc a jobi,cr at prcscott. wj)( can buy in carload lots, a chance to job a short distance away from Prcscott, until he meets ayWickcn burg, Mayer or Jerome jobber. In other words, such shipping would help Arizona people but little, if at all. It would be a case of "dog cat dog" all thc time with would-be jobbers or any man who can buy a carload of any commodity. -Sonic one will say that thc car riers would lower their rates to in tcrmountain points to comply with thc law and make them equal thc coast rates. Do not fool yourself. They will not. They will raise the coast rates. That cuts you out of anything from that direction, and sometimes things from thc coast arc worth while. Do not forget that thc higher rates to inside points apply only to comparatively few commodi ties. "Xow. jiijt a word in the matter of competition. Is there a business man who is smart enough to think twice, DRAK 0 ON HAYDEN that docs not know the natural and human law of business so far as com petition goes? Every one of you know that conditions make the price, and they arc not the same for every body under all conditions, at all times. That is so the world over; always has been and always will be.

The verdict marks the end of one of the hardest-fought trials ever con ducted in the county, and during the entire three days the case was in court, scats in the courtroom were at f premium, the audiences having on every occasion been made up largely of women and girls who had for some reason been taking a gfeat in terest in the matter. Attorneys O'SulIivan and Mor gan, who conducted the defense, based their appeals to the jury on self-defense, and were apparently able to prove to the jury's satisfaction that the Mexican had made threats against the life of the defendant, and that the latter was justified in shooting him down in the street in Clarkdalc. Rob ert Morrison of Prcscott, had been hired by the friends of Orosco to thc arguments were opened when court convened at 1:30. The defense presented several witnesses during thc morning who testified to the good character of the defendant. Among those : who were placed on the stand for this purpose were the following- named: Ben Soguc, M. T. Broadcd. Fred Hawkins. Deputy Sheriff F. F. Bartlett, C. W. Bennett, and Joe Cook. The State thereupon intro duced witnesses in rebuttal of the testimony offered by the defense. A j large part of thc testimony showing : Orosco's connection with an alleged bootlegging plot was ruled out of the case bv Ttulcc Swcenev. and one of thc main points which thc de fense hoped to introduce thc manner in which Winsor had first become ac quainted "with thc dead man was kept out of thc records.
