That the show will be held is believed to be the most logical result of the various negotiations entered into after the presentation of a petition to the board of supervisors yesterday. The petition urging the removal of the enclosure from the -plaza, urged the grounds that it was un sightly' and that it contemplated gambling. When former service men had explained that there was no gambling in the accepted sense of the word, many signers "of the peti tion declared their acquiescence in the project. Work on the booths was stopped as a result of the opposition express ed in the petition, and the leaders of the V. F. W. declared their intention to drop the matter, although it would involve a considerable loss of money already expended for lumber and carpenters. Sentiment seemed to incline to the side of the veterans who were approached by many cit izens who said they favored holding the '49 show. It was admiflcd that tile high board fence was not very decorative but it was pointed out that this fea ture would not necessarily govern, and the provision of amusement for the crowds would outweigh the pure ly esthetic considerations. The attitude of a few who had signed the petition was accepted by the veterans' organization in good spirit, and although the board of su pervisors, to whom the matter was presented, passed a resolution declin ing to order the removal of the en closure, the V. F. W. workers were solid for discontinuing their plans for the show. A final decision will be reached to day, and it is believed that it will be favorable to putting the Slippery Gulch through. ivc contestants due to arrive within the next few da3's. Lee Robinson, from Pawhuska, Okla., wired the Frontier Days as; sociation to enter him in all roping and bulldogging and Snakey Wil liams in all the riding and bulldog ging events. The grounds resemble a first class cattle ranch. The bellowing of the cattle adds to the atmosphere that makes a westerner glad he is alive. The arena grounds is teeming with life. Chairman- Robinson of the grounds committee has placed the roads in excellent shape, and signs showing the entrance and exits will direct the traffic in a systematic maimer. Foreman Lovelady has the chutes, corrals and in fact every thing in readiness for the word "go!" The stock could not be ill better condition and judging from the ap pearance of the cowboys and cattle men seen about the streets, they arc in the pink of condition also. IN DAGfiS DECISION PHOENIX, June 29 Hugh Daggs of Phoenix has won out in the state suprerne court against H. Kjerschow and Birger Lie, whom he sued in the lower court for $11,688.67 and interest, representing commissions on a land deal consummated between Daggs and the late John Christy. Before the latter's death, Daggs secured an agreement from the Gila Land & Cattle Co. to sell to Christy 4,2k) acres of land in Maricopa county, his commission to be $5 an acre.' The administrator of Christy's estate did not contest the claim but Jthe other two members of the "Scan dinavian syndicate," as it was called, did so, claiming that they were not a party to the transaction. s From the testimony submitted, however, it was shown that Kjer schow and Lie were interested with Christ- in several mining, timber and cattle enterprises; that he was act ing as their agent, holding all ,the property ill his name with the under standing that the three would share alike in the profits and ownership. There was a written agreement to this effect, in the face of which it would have been difficult for the court to have ru'cd other than it did.

(From Saturday's Daily) At first the Rotary Club started out saying nothing and, sawing wood. But before it had ended, Ralph Roper had said a whole lot. His re port on the Rotary international con vention at Los Angeles and the trade talk of Maurice Tribby on leather and shoes, were the high lights of the meeting, which was dtherwise distinguished .by'- the per spiring 'efforts of Johnny Robinson, Ben Ward and Lester Ruffner with the buck-saw and the log of wood. Something of the size and import ance of Rotary and Rotarians was gathered by Delegate Ralph at the Los Angeles convention. He de scribed the manner of men who are the leaders of Rotary and said the meeting gave him so much pleasure that he would never miss another one provided he could possibly get to it. Tribby sketched the history of tanning from paleolithic times to now and showed a shoe which had been cut in two to display the man ner of its fabrication. He wound up with sonic statistics about the num ber of tons of feet that bear down on a pair of shoes in the course of a day s walk, and said that was enough to make any shoe wear out.
