Renoe on a charge of possessing alcoholic liquor in vio lation of the national prohibition amendment. Chong was arrested by federal prohibition enforcement of ficers and charged with violating sections 3, 6 and 32 of title 2 of the Volstead act , He is being held pending decision" of Commissioner Renoe on a motion for dismissal by Attorney R. E. Morrison, who ap peared for Chong yesterday. Two grounds were given by Mr. Morrison is moving for a dismissal of the defendant. The liquor, a gal lon jug and another bottle contain ing a half-gallon -were found in a house on South Granite street said to be occupied by Tom Chong and his laundry business and by three other Chinamen. Mr. Morrison's first ground, that no evidence had been offered to show that Chong was the proprietor of the place in which the liquor was found was not allowed by the commissioner, for the reason that one of the federal of ficers testified that another China man, asked who the proprietor of the place was, had pointed-out Chong. Whether Chong will be held or not depends upon whether the place in which the liquor was found is proven to be a place of business or a place of residence. The liquor was seized without a search warrant. Four Chinamen, including Chong, were living in it at the time, thus appar ently making it a place of residence. On the other hand, Chong conduct ed his laundry business there. Since liquor cannot be seized in a private residence without search warrant, Chong might be dismissed if the house was proven to be a residence and not a place of business. IS FROM OVER THE HILLOCK TO GO FOR SHERIFF (From Thursdays Dully) Having been urged by hundreds of friends for the past month to enter the race for sheriff, Robert Robbins yesterday decided to announce his candidacy for the republican nomina tion.

For many years he was on the -local police force and was later appointed chief of police in which office he displayed a keen and intelligent sense of its duties, was cooi in action and well balanced in judgment, and gave universal sat isfaction. Owing to a change in ad ministration, he resigned the office and accepted the position of watch man at Clarkdalc smelter, and about two years ago, retired to enter the employ of the Clarkdalc meat mar ket. That he is the ideal man for the office of sheriff is the enthusias tic opinion expressed by a large coterie of friends. ED DILLON LEAVES FOR ELK Kfflfi (From Tfiurseays Dally) Ed J.

TO SEE MORE CUSS WORDS II STORIES By PTOMAINE BUTTERMILK Dear Editor: It all very, ver-r-ree well, to have that combination cowpunchcr author from Wickenburg writing your stuff for you this ytiar. But what arc YOU doing to earn the old porkchops? Do 'you always pass the buck? I think your own Frontier days stories arc punk. There isn't a cuss word in them. Now this guy from down on the Hassayamp is giving I us something. Why, he even searches the Hindu to find expressions worthy of that splendid show out there. And why not, isn't Frontier days worthy of being chronicled in all the lan guages including the Scandinavian and the dialects affected in the lower parts of Kansas? You birds think you arc smart trying to write poetry about the glad old days in the west. Why there is better poetry in the ads than you can write. Here is one I composed with a pair lot scissors and a paste-pot while viewing Lee Robinson yester day and Jack Boody bulldogging in 13 and unip-umpths: "A Kingman cavaliar Went out to grab a steer Down on the flats of PresCOT-ty 'Carambo,' said he 'Poco ticmpo, you'll be Muy bueno chile con came!"

SutKiNESS OF E S T I IWfl T I N G (From Friday's Daily) Final scoring yesterday in the two spectacular bronco events, the world's championship under saddle and the bareback finished up a tough job for the three judges. And Homer Wood, the lightning calculator, took over the little printed cards from Assistant Director Gail Gardner, ap- pled the full pressure of his michtv intellect and will deliver the final and conclusive averages of these great bucking events. It may be of interest to the read ers to know how bronco busting is now estimated, and how it used to be done in the days of yesteryear. All who have followed the sport for the last five or six years will re member how the elected judges used to look 'cm over for four days and then go away somewhere, open the lodge ceremoniously, arrive at the stage of unfinished business and evolve a winner, a man for second place and a trailer. These elections were dependent upon the (a) impres sion left in the mind of the judge, (b) the degree of memory left after a wild, wild week, and (c) the per sonal feeling of the jucz toward the particular candidate for buckitorial honors. But now things arc different. Noth ing is left to memory, which is a treacherous beast at best The sys tem is reduced to science. Each con testant is inscribed on a printed card and three copies are placed in the hands of the judges. They note the quality of bucking put out by the horse and the degree of ridability displayed by the human. These qualities and degrees' arc written on the card in the form of percentages. A perfect horse will be written 100 per cent, and horses less efficient at the. business in hand, will be scored lower as the judge deems best In the same manner the rjder's percent age goes down on the card.

PARADE PRIE IS THE DOC'S ACKGROfO OF R T FOR iFBDWTIER SPORTS (From Friday's Daily) Frontier Week this year has seen so many activities in Prcscott that space has not been available for adequate treatment of all of them. In addition to the Frontier Day contests, naturally the chief attrac tion of the week for the hundreds of Yavapai and Arizona people and their .visitors, there has been Slip pery Gulch, the ex-service men's show, and the conventons of the National Forest Permittees and the Arizona Cattle and Wool Growers' association. Then there have been the various dances which have been operated every night at the New Frolic, the Odd Fellow's hall, and Granite Dells. The Cattle and Wool Growers' convention which opened yesterday and will continue in ses sion until tomorrow, is reported in another part of this issue, as is the ex-service men's show. Fireman's Ball The event of the week in dances was undoubtedly the annual ball of the Prcscott Volunteer Fire De partment, which was held in I.O.O.F. hall Tuesday evening. The crowds that attended this event packed the hall so that another couple couldn't have squeezed in if it had wanted to. The floor, of course, was so managed as not to let the big crowd interfere too -much with dancing. The hall was attractively decorated in Fourth of July colors, and from early in the evening until after mid night the crowd enjoyed dancing to the excellent music of Beatty's orchestra. The Fireman's Ball is the only source of revenue of the volun teer firemen from which funds arc secured to keep the club-rooms go ing and take care of any fireman in jured in service, and since no salary is attached to the work of any fire man except the one man stationed at the hall, the public always gen erously attends the annual ball and 1 1 i cruusiy micuus iiie annual uau aim r-,i t,oi t t? t tt i i . : r l r ,i.-fcrM!Wer'al chapel.

The ball this year was a big success and "a considerable amount of money resulted from the sale of tickets, Fire Chief Bob Con nel reports. At Granite Dellls Perhaps the event next in impor tance was the opening of the new Granite Dells resort by Payne brothers and the dance given there by .the Tully Sisters' orchestra. The opening was held last Saturday nignt, and on Monday and Wednesday evenings and last night swiming and dancing were the great attractions FOR FORTY-TWO YEARS! we have watched Yavapai County grow.
