WEEKLY JOURNAL-MINER, WEDNESDAY, JULY 12, 1922 Sum SSm A HARD RlflE (From Friday's Dally Crowds again last night thronged White Mule canyon and enjoyed a taste of the freer days and ways of the old west in the final evening of the Slippery Gulch show held on the court house square by ex-service men's organizations of this city. From the gate of the, big conces sion up to the court house steps, the "canyon" was filled with merry makers laying thousand and five thousand "buck" notes on roulette and faro and blackjack, or chancing it with the crap-shooters. Others planked down their notes on the numbered squares for a baby doll while Wild Willie ballyhooed from the box, and still others bought soft drinks with fearful names from, the stands where liquids by the barrelful were dispensed. Dancing in a fenced-in portion of the concession afforded pleasure to the many at tending the show. A big stock- ot buck" notes was laid in by the committee in charge in anticipation of a rush on the bank." where Mrs. M. L. Ganey and Mrs. Harry Juliani shoved out the long-blue under the firm names of John D. Rockefeller and J. P. Morgan. Among the other crowds, whp at tended the big show were members of the Arizona Cattle and Wool Growers' associations, who .enjoyed a unique opportunity to participate in sports with which they were fa miliar in days now past. The 10-car special Santa Fe 'train carrying about 250 .eastern delegates returning from the national conven tion of the Disabled American Vet erans of the World ' War at Sa'n Francisco, which was to have been routed through Prescott and shunt ed onto a siding for a few hours here yestcrdaj-, was rushed straight through to the cast. The chamber of commerce was advised by wire yesterday morning that the train would not come down to Prescott, nor even stop at the Grand canyon. Thus Slippery Gulch arid the Fron tier days lost out on the' extra vis itors who werc to have seen : the' two big shows. 1 The reason for rushing the special train straight through was said tq be fear of the railroad management that if left at Prescott for even a few hours, the train might become stalled. Uncertainties of the railroad strike gave rise to an unwillingness on the part of the Santa Fc to detour any train once ptartcd, fgr anitjic strikj continues rolling stock " which falls into disrepair cannot be put into service again until men arc obtained to repair it. It is understood thai two engines arc in the local shops now waiting repairs. The wiudup was attended by an $SO0 .crowd, it was estimated late last night. During the other three days of the show $2200 was taken in, making the total rccciptsh ap proximately $3,000. One-third of this sum, or a flat $1,000 will be deposited in the coffers of the Fron- j tier Days association. The other two thirds will be retained by the cx- scrvicc men (From Fridays Dally) If it was any consolation to ride in the consolation bronco busting, then cowboys have a darn funny idea of what is consoling. Apparently just to confirm the suspicion mount ing in the contestants' minds during the first three days that they were not -in the good grace of Old Lady Luck this year, the consolation con test yesterday resulted in the piling or casting adrift of all but two of the riders. Jack Rodriguez, who rose from beneath the belly of Chris Totten as Jonah is reported to have risen from that section of the whale, rode into a beautiful $100 bill. Jack jwas turned loose plenty wild but also a little too soon and Cliris fell with him. For a minute it looked like if Jack didn't kick the horse to death, the horse would do him a consid erable amount of dirt. But they got the two fighting animals apart final ly, and Jack got right into the saddle and rode the rest of the bucks in' fine shape. His score was 93. Tom Cook did a magnificent ride on Lee Haworth to second place. L. E. Smith pulled leather on Casey Jones .and Bill Clark failed to show daylight o;i Hcllydid, Barney Hinds lost a stirrup oti Red Wing and Fancher, Overton and Taylor guessed they would not compete any more whatever. OITI ER BILLS Wild West Association Ready to Pay Up; Contestants All Receive Vouchers for Money They Won During Week. TWO IEAR SEARCH OF FUGITIVE ENDS IN PLAZA MSI (From Sunday's Daily) A two-year search for J. C. White, 56, against whom a charge of felony has been standing at Phoenix since 1920, ended here yesterday morning when E. G. Crowe, city, police in spector of Phoenix, took White into custody. For two years past White, who is said to trael under a choice collection of aliases, has evaded ef forts of tht police to arrest hint for alleged theft 6f a Dbdgc touring- caY in Phoenix. The 2-J-months' vigilance of In spector Crowe was rewarded yester day when he saw White on the plaza, and followed him. A short distance away from the square. Crowe accosted the' man and ques tioned him. Stubborn denials of his identity were followed by White's ad mission that he was the man Crowe sought, the inspector said. At the sheriff's office yesterday White's name was written on the jail register in front of a grand larceny charge, and the Phoenix ' police in spector was being complimented by the other officers on "a good p'ick- (From Sur.aaj-s rsally) Frontier days is now ready for liquidation. With most of the prize money vouchered put in the four-day meet, the association is now turning its at tention to the" accounts held by people in town for supplies fur nished. Bills arc requested covering these accounts so the auditors can clean up.' The financial aspect of the 1922 show will i not ble known until the accounts arc all cast up. The big Fourth of July crowd did a great deal to pay the debt's, but unfor tunately this year there was no Sun day among the "days" and at no time during the celebration except Tues day were the stores closed. Grace Sparkes, the secretary, jumped right from the management of the contest to the cleaning up of bills, and with the assistance of Ruth, the Roper, who is accused of getting her job on acount of her name, will have everything caught up in a few STARS HAVE STRONG VETERAN'S BENEFIT Irene Rich and House Peters, who play the leading roles in the new Goldwyn picture, "The Invisible Power," which will be shown at the Elks theater- tomorrow night in two benefit performances for the Vet erans of Foreign Wars, give a per fect example of filic team work in difficult parts. The picture will be shown at the regular two shows at 7 and 9, and it is expected that the CRITTENDEN CIRCLE TO MEET THURSDAY (From Sunday's Dally) Progress of work of extending local circles and committees of the "Flor ence Crittenten Home at Phoenix and of furthering the work of the Prescott circle will be related at a meeting of the local circle at the Y W. C. A. house on North Marina street ,at 2:30 o'clock, "Thursday afternoon, it' was announced yester day by Ir, L. tC. Thompson,- field secretary of the home, who arrived in Prescott last week. "Thursday afternoon will be an open meeting," Mrs. Thompson said yesterday." Those who have been in terested in the work and those who will be interested, are cordially in vited to attend. There is much of great interest to tell about the year's work in the state. The organization here has done very well, and has proved very encouraging. During the present year we hope to further the work and to interest others. "A good deal of interest has been shown -all over the "state," Mrs. Thompson continued, commenting on the work in Arizona during the past year. "A circle br committee has been organized in every town of any size, 18 new ones being added to our list during the year. Much in terest has been shown by women and business men in the various towns. "The great object of the Crittenten home from now on is to extend its work, which has been larger the past year than for many years. We -.want now a department for delinquent girls, where they may obtain a dif ferent vision' , for the future . There is no such place in the state at pres ent for such "girls. Eastern people I have met during my trips oyer the state during the past year have shown much enthusiasm, because they have been acquainted with the jvork of Florence Crittenten homes In the cast, where there are many large ones. At Boston, for example, a $200,000 new home is being erected." Mrs. Thompson said that a report of Mrs. L. H. Messenger, superin tendent of the home at Phoenix, WAN HELD FOR BOTTLE Betty Howard, arrested by Prohi bition enforcement officers Friday and charged with violating the na tional prohibition act by possessing a bottle of liquor found, in a refrige rator in the Lafayette hotel, in which she resides, yesterday was re leased when the case was withdrawn by the prohibition agents at a hear ing before United States Commis sioner John A. Renoe. Miss Howard first took the stand and testified that her apartment was on the left of a hallway running the length of the Lafayette and that the bath-room in which the refrigerator was placed was on the right side of the hall. In the bath-room was a gas" stove and this refrigerator, the latter placed there for the use of .guests of the establishment. There are 12 apartments in the place, the witness declared, and the ocupants of all of them had equal access to the refrige rator. She denied that the' liquor was hers. ' Attorney P. W. O'SuIlivan, who represented the defendant, then placed on the stand W. E. Spence, also a resident of the Lafayette, whom he had subpoenaed to testify in the case. Spence declared he had been asleep and had not "Known of the search of .the Lafayette 'until after the arrest of Miss Howard. The liquor found in the refrigerator, he declared, w'as',.hisV He had bought it' for $15 from a ,man from out of town, whom- 'he did not know, and had pla'cc'd " it in the refrigerator. Whereupon, the1 agents wished to withdraw their case against Miss Howard. They did this, and then charged Spence with possessing the liquor in violation of law. "Wait -a minute," said Attorney O'SuIlivan, and "proceeded to quote the statutes to .'the' effect that evi dence given by a witness subpoe naed to testify on the stand cannot showed that 61 cases havp been cared ; be used against him, and that there for during the year and four babies. born. Fourteen children have been cared for and four girls married. Expenditures for the year were $3, 843.91 and receipts $5,6-12.41. ' The Music was furnished by the Tully UP Sisters and Manuel's orchestra. The show was wound up last night with an auction of all the goods remain ing unsold. Much of the success of Slippery Gulch has been due to the help of those who managed the various games in ' the concession. Many of these helpers changed on different nights, but among the big list of those who aided the ex-scrvicc men in conducting the show the following names were obtainable last night from the committee: Mrs. J. L. Sullivan, Mrs. M. L. (lancy, Mrs. Harry Juliani. Mrs. A. C. Schneider, Miss Fay Sodcrstrom, iss Mary O'Brien, Mrs. Wlldman, Mrs. Claud Johnson, E. A. McSwig jjin, C. H. cLanc. Mr. Wildman, J.

Cole, Pervcy Forgays and Mr- Wal drup of Phoenix. The appreciation of the cx-scrvicc men is also ex tended to the many others who con tributed to the success pf the big show in White Mule Canyon. ORIENTAL TROUBLES OF LECTURE An interesting discussion of the present political troubles of China will be given from first-hand infor mation acquired during his recent so journ in the orient, by Dr. W. If. B. l"rch, former pastor of the Congre gational church' here, who will speak at the church today. Dr. Urch and his sister. Miss Catherine Urch, returned recently from the orient.

The story, by Charles Kcnyon, was directed by frank Lloyd; and the production as a whole is marked by many, clever and subtle touches not often seen on the screen.
