WEEKLY JOURNAL-MINER PAGE FIV st m play TO GIVE BENEFIT FOR THE B1S1 It looks like a big night tonight! The place the Elks theater. The biggest and best entertainment in the city will be the St. Nick's artists, who arrived on yesterday mornin's train to fill their engagement tonight Mrs. Lester Ruffner, through whose direct help the St. Nick's entertain ers were induced to come to Pres cott, hp.s added another star for to night's program whose fame extends even to Paris. Helen Boyle Haworth needs little introduction to her hundreds of friends in Prescott, (jut those who may not know this famous Arizona singer, it is to be said that she is considered one of the leading mezzo contraltos of the country. Awarded the state scholarship by Governor Thomas E. Campbell, her first appearance since her return from a year's study at Fontainebleau college, Paris, will be in Prescott to night. Her numbers alone will be worth ten times the general admis sion, but when it comes to co-operation, Prescott is there and is never forgotten by friends made in former years. Among the numbers to be present ed in Helen Boyle Haworth's act will be: "The Bird With a Broken Wing" dedicated by Florence Gordon to Helen Keller, and particularly fitting for a Christmas program. "The In fant Jesus," a Christmas carol, and the song, "One Fine Day," from Ma dame Butterfly, will also be given by this artist'. Five big acts' will ,malre up the special program, in addition to the regular picture show, and these artists will appear and give two per formances during the regular picture show program. "This is the biggest program to be placed before a Prescott audience in many a day," says Manager Born, "and it is bound to be extremely popular. We are turning over all the excess admissions above the usual picture show run to the Christmas tree fund. Those who come first will be first served with -good scats.' Among the St. Nick entertainers will appear: Princess Tewa, gifted in song and voice, from the far mesa lands of the north. This princess will feature Indian lullabies of the tribes who arc now fast disappearing. The Victor Clibinsky solos in them selves could not be equaled. An artist of unusual talent, with a pleas ing personality and all that goes to make music worth 'while will be found in Clibinsky. Grace Van'skow,' his accompanist, is an artist of note; her solo numbers will elicit many en cores, tra-la! , The skit 'of Alverda Mayec, pupil of the noted Julian Pascal, will please. It takes years of study to bring out the genuine artist, and in Alverda Mayec a genuine artist will be found, at her best, tra-la! From the Denishawn school in California comes Mademoiselle An drea, a danscuse who is rapidly gain ing fame for her terpichorean ability. nn llEll OF f j' ills Felix Ji Driscoll last night was elected commander of Buckey O'Neill post of the Veterans of Foreign VV'ars, in a close and lively contest in which five candidates were voted for.

A native of Halifax, Eng., Mr. Lar kin early came to America, and for 23 years had- been in the service of the United States. In the Spanish American war, the campaigns in the Philippines and in the European war, he reached a high non-commissioned ra;ik, serving as ordnance sergeant. Enlisting in the. Seventh cavalry in 1S99, he served for some time at Fort Apache. He received the D. S. M. for gallant military conduct in a clash between- a detachment of American troops which entered Mexico shortly before General Pershing's expedition across the border, to rescue negro troops, and Mexican soldiers. Larkin contracted pulmonary tuber culosis during the battle of the Marne. This disability, from which he suffcr- I rA In- 1 !a 1 i iui aiiii yaiby uruu&ui auuui his death. His high military character While there is no official cogni zance taken of the manner in which John Ross may have obtained the liquor and opium that caused his death, the concensus of opinion in official circles yesterday following the inquest was that Ross, a colored tubercular veteran, had been delib erately fed hop and rolled. This theory is built up on the basis of information to the effect that Ross had come into town with about $270 in cash .on his person. When nc was louna dead m a room on Granite street, his clothintr contained $8. The verdict of the coroner's iurv yesterday morning was based on the testimony of medical officers from Fort Whipple, who stated that Ross had died as a result of alcohol and opium poisoning. No traces of the drug were found in the stomach, but symptoms indicated its effects, the officers said. Ross was making good improve ment in his fight against consump tion, according to post doctors, and was one of the most agreeable of patients, very obedient to orders and i medical advice. His death is at tributed unofficially to the operation of one or more persons who may have thought to drug him into un consciousness in order to obtain his money, but who overplayed the dose. P POCKET if II BSB W VIE TO , VOGUE HEA9U It is no longer the custom to serve the drinks by dragging the old bottle from under the bar, according to federal prohibition officers now working in this district. The back-of-the-bar system has been discon tinued since the arrest of several al leged bootleggers in pool halls. The "bar" is now the pants pocket of the bartender. It was an alleged pants pocket bar that was raided at Noriega & Ab bott's pool hall on South Granite street when the Mexican called Prieta or JBJackic made his sensational get-away. The one man arrested at that time and place, Flores, was turn ed loose yesterday when it was found that the bottle he carried was merely a purchase and not a stock in trade. Flores was said by the prohibition agents to Have admitted he had bought his bottle from an individual at another pool hall. John R. (Jack) Dye, who was twice in the superior court on charges of violating the liquor laws this year, was arrested and, according to the otticers, a bottle was extracted from his pockets. Charges in the federal court of possessing and selling liquor are to be preferred, it was said. 57th Annual Installation of Old est Masonic Lodge in Arizona Will Take iPlace at Banquet December 27; Masons Invited. DAKOTAN DECLARES PRESCOTT IS BEST SECTION BOUGHT BY SHEEPMEN SHEEP DRIVE WA A bigger demand for Christmas trees is being shown in Prescott this year than was shown last, according to the records of the local forest service office. Approximately 250 applications for trees have been re ceived and granted in the two days that the forest, in co-operation with Charley Scholey, has permitted trees to be cut from Scholey s land on Spruce mountain. This is about a third more applications than were re ceived last 3'ear. Trees will be cut again today, it ;vas announced. Ranger J. C. Mc Nelty will drive out to the Senator divide this time, the road over the bpruce mountain area being rather hard to travel, and between 10 o'slock this morning and 5 this even ing will be on the spot to indicate trees that may be cut and issue per mits to cut them. No charge is made for trees that are cut for private use, the user cutting them, but trees cut tor sale will be charged for. The spot at which Ranger Mc Nelty will be found today is on the Senator divide south of the Hassa- yampa. Follow the Senator road through Groom Creek, past the Sena tor mine, across the bridge over the hassayampa and tor about two miles farther on past this bridge. It will ;e well to take an axe along, the nrcst service office advises. For climate and for a moderately large business, Prescott is the place. This conclusion has been reached after a tour of California and Ari zona, by G. H. Grayner, farmer of Belvedere, b. Dak., who returned to Prescott yesterday on his way east, to visit his son, Glenn urayncr, for merly an employe of the Floyd Wil liams service station.

At the sheriff's office, where Ru dolph resided for a while until the government decided not to hold him further for investigation, they don't call him by his full name because his full name is too full. At any rate, the official wor,d is something like this, addressed to sher iffs and deputy sheriffs to the north and south: "Arrest Hold warrant for Rudolph von Vlammerthyngc, larceny. Notify J. P. Dillon, sheriff, Yavapai county." The up and down of it is that Ru dolph, who walked into the sheriff's office to disclose the locality of the Ed Block store loot and was detained on a federal description, turned in ac cording to officers, stole two type writers, an alarm clock and other small items from Mrs. Blickcnstaff and Mrs. Olzcr, and piked off to the Mexican border -or in that direction.

The sale is now being conducted in Jerome by the sheriffs office.

The attachment which the sheriff's office has made of the, defendant company's property is of the value of $3,5Q0.
