ARIZONA OPPOSES JOINT STATEHOOD CITIZENS AGAINST ADMISSION WITH NEW MEXICO George H. Kelly Asserts That It Is Preferred to Remain as Territory If Separate Government Is Not Permtlted George H. Kelly, editor and proprietor of two of the leading dally newspapers In Arizona— the Blsbee Review and the Douglas International American— who has been spending severaldays In Los Angeles on his annual vacation, left yesterday at noon to meet the congres sional party headed by "Uncle Joe" Cannon, who are beginning a tour of Arizona. . . Mr. Kelly will meet the party at Douglas this morning and accompany it on Its Journeylngs through Arizona. It is the intention of the party to prac tically observe and hear from the citi zens of Arizona about the conditions in the territory and to learn if the terri tory Is entitled to Join the sisterhood of states without joint statehood with New Mexfco. In discussing the opposition of Arl zonans to Joint statehood Mr. Kelly said yesterday: "Arizona Is now on the anxious seat and special anxiety is abroad in the sun-kissed land because of the ap proaching visit of a congressional party, which is expected to reach Ari eona tomorrow. "It is not known just who will be of the party or how large It will be, but It will be headed by Uncle Joe Cannon, ■who Is bringing his colleagues west for the purpose of making investigations of the conditions in Arizona and New Mexico as bearing on the proposition of statehood. "In the last congress Speaker Cannon •wag an ardent supporter of joint state hood for Arizona and New Mexico. Such a bill passed the lower house by a large majority of votes, and after it was amended in the senate by a pro vision giving separate statehood to the territories Mr. Cannon took his speak ership ax and knocked it in the head. "The congressional party will find the people of Arizona just as determined in their opposition to joint statehood as they were when this bill was before the last congress. Arlzonana feel that they are entitled to separate statehood, and when the precedents of the past are considered there can be no doubt obout the qualification of the territory to assume and maintain a creditable state government. "Arizona was made a territory in 1863, being cut from New Mexico be cause of the Inconvenience of communi cation between the two subdivisions on account of the range of mountains which divides them. Political Maneuvering "The same conditions which caused 'Arizona to be made a territory exist how, and there ran be but one reason for throwing Arizona back with New Mexico and that is to strengthen the Republican party and to weaken the Xvest in the national legislature. "It is the plea of Arizona that when It was made a territory the pledge was given to those who would come and develop Its resources and fit it for mem bership in the sisterhood of states, they would be given self-government and a separate state. "That had been the promise to all the territories, nnd up to the present time that rule or precedent or promise has never been broken. "Separate statehood Is the heritage of the pioneers of Arizona who braved the hardships and dangers of an Apache- Infested desert to reclaim it for civiliza tion and industry and to now deprive these people of this heritage would bo the crowning political outrage of the Republican party. "Mr. Cannon and his associates will find Arizona hetter qualified for state hood than were a majority of the ter ritories which have been admitted to Btatehood since the formation of the government. "They will find the same condition In New Mexico. They will find a larger population in New Mexico, but greater Industrial prosperity in Arizona. "They will find that joint statehood will mean that tho people of New Mexico will he in complete control of the new state and that the people of 'Arizona, by reason of their minority, Nvill lose their political identity, which Is dear to them and to all Americans. "There will be no harmony in the proposed joint state. Arizona will have no assurance that her splendid terri torial university will i.ot be abandoned IT GURB P \s£\ ME ? HPVV That's the personal question a woman Mks herself when sh« reads of the cures of womanly diseases by the use of Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescription. Why shouldn't It euro her? Is It a complicated case? Thousands of such cases have been cured by "Fa- vorite Prescription." Is it a condition which local doctors have declared In- curable? Among the hundreds of thou- sands of sick women cured by the use of Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescription there are a great many who were pronounced Incurable l>y local doctors. Wonders have been worked by "Favorite Pre- scription" In the cure of irregularity, weakening drains, inflammation, ulcera- tlon and female weakness. It always helps. It almost always cures. "I commenced taking your medicine, 'Fa- vorite Prescription.' nearly a year ago for chronic Inflammation of womb, and can truly say it is the only thing that ever did me any rood." writes Mrs. L. C..Wa»ner. of 125 Edwin Street, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. " I could not walk any distance before URlng It. A f ter taking six bottle* of your ' Favorite Pre- scription' I find I can walk without difficulty and am rreatly benefited In general health.

Proud of School System "Ariaona Is proud of her public school system, which Is the equal of any state In the Union. Arizona has provided fine public school buildings and the children of the territory are all pro vided with good schools wherever there are ten living within a radius of four miles. "Liberal appropriations are made an nually by the Arizona legislature for the support of the university and nor mal schools, the Industrial school and other Institutions, while In New Mexico the liberal appropriations go to con vents and parochial schools, while the public school system has remained In great neglect in the past. "With joint statehood there will be no one to guarantee that the splendid pub lic school system of Arizona will be preserved and not supplanted by the inadequate system in New Mexico. "Joint statehood would begin in great confusion and continue In growing strife between the two sections. "Sneaker Cannon will have ample opportunity for disabusing his mind of many erroneous statements which have grown out of the report made by Sena tor Eoverldge of Indiana, who visited the territory four years ago to make observations In connection with the plea of Arizona for statehood. "That was during the pendency of the omnibus statehood bill. Beverldge reported that thfi territory had reached practically the limit of industrial de velopment. "Mr. Cannon will find that since the visit of Mr. Beveridge, Arizona has ad vanced more rapidly In the development of her resources than during any four years since It was cut from New Mexico. "He will find that to accommodate the great Warren mining district alone at Bisbee there has been purchased and constructed more than 800 miles of rail road, reaching the great coal fields Vt Dawson, N. M., also owned by the mining company which did the railroad building and purchasing. "He will find at Douglas a city of 8000 people which had barely been sur veyed on the occasion of the visit of Senator Beverldge to Arizona. World's Largest Smelter : 'He will find that in Douglas Is now practically completed the largest copper smelting plant in the world. He will find a second smelter producing 5,000,000 pounds of copper per month. He will find that in Douglas has been expended more money during the past year for schools and churches than in any five counties in New Mexico during the same length of time. "He will find here $50,000 In public school buildings, J35.000 in a Y. M. C. A. building now nearly ready for occu pancy, and he will find churches which cost in the aggregate more than $40,000, and all this since the declaration of Mr. Beverldge that Arizona had reacheJ the limit of Industrial development. "At every point included in the itin erary of Speaker Cannon he will see evidence of great industrial expansion from the time he enters Arizona until he leaves it. "At every point he will find a prac tically unanimous sentiment against joint statehood. He will find that the people of Arizona would prefer to re main Indefinitely under the present ter ritorial form of government than to agree to Jointure. "If Mr. Cannon is seeking to learn the true conditions in Arizona the peo ple of Arizona feel that when he shali have passJd through the mining dis tricts, the agricultural valleys and«the pastural ranges of this territory he will agree that Arizona is entitled to sepa rate statehood and be ready to acquiesce in the just supplications of our people." ARRESTS DOG AND ITS OWNER Policeman Wins Out in Championship Contest With G. Cavelari and Mastiff at Park While the German-Americans were celebrating the 222 d anniversary of the arrival of their ancestors at German- I town, yesterday afternoon at Chutes park, members of a gang known as "Coyotes" and other ruffians entered the park and created a disturbance, but it was soon quelled by the police. A man giving the name of G. Cave lari entered the park with a bulldog and uttempted to put Patrolman Billy MatuskiwiU outside. Instead, the offi cer soon had Cavelari in subjection, and the bulldog on his back, and later sent them to the city jail. Although thousands thronged the park, it was one of the most orderly crowds of its size ever assembled in Loa Angeles, and not an arrest was made among the members of the Ger man-American party.

"It Is never wise," he said, "to take up a work in order to put it down. If there Is nothing good in a work, why waste one's time discussing it? As for criticisms that are pure and simple attacks they are cruel. Silence, it seems to me, is criticism cruel enough. "What, for Instance, could have been crueler than Rossini'^ silent criticism of a score sent to him by a young musician? Rossini was fond of mac aroni. The musician, knowing this, sent him, along with his Bcore, a packet of macaroni of unusual excel lence. In a humble little note he asked the composer to point out the merits In his work, if he found any there. "Rossini's reply ran like this: 'Thanks for your score and for the macaroni. The latter was excellent.' " Undelivered Telegrams There are undelivered telegrams at the office of the Western Union Telegraph company for F. T. Hoppe, Ed. Ganlen, C. E.

LAST HONORS PAID TO GENERAL KONDRATENKO HERO'S REMAINS INTERRED AT ST. PETERSBURG Thousands of People of All Classes Attend Services at Ancient Monas tery and Many Cities of Russian Empire Send Deputations Sy Associated Press. ST. PETERSBURG, Oct. B.— The ar rival of the body of MaJ. Gen. Kondra tenko, commander af the Seventh East Siberian rllles, who was killed last De cember at Tort Arthur, and its inter ment in the venerable Alexander Nev sky monastery today, was marked by the most impressive military and civil spectacle witnessed here since the early days of the war. For once all classes of the population of the capital awak ened from that apathy which was un touched by the news of the battles of Mukden or the Sea of Japan or the an nouncement of the conclusion of peace. Thousands of spectators standing silent and uncovered in a drizzling rain walked the broad Nevsky Prospect from the Moscow station to the gates of the monastery, while grand dukes, min isters of state and the highest officers of the army and navy, many of whom had won distinction at Port Arthur and in Manchuria, followed the coffin on foot through the muddy streets as com mon mourners with the widow and sor. of the dead general. In the procession could be seen the uniforms of every order of Russian military. Each regiment of the St. Petersburg garrison sent a detachment of veterans, many bearing the thirty year service medals, to form the mili tary escort. - Conspicuous among the clergy were two militant priests from Port Arthur, wearing the broad yellow and black ribbons of the Order of St. George, awarded them for gallantry during the siege. Many cities were represented by deputations. The emperor had expect ed to attend, but he was unable to do so. He was represented by Grand Duke Vladimir. Metropolitan Antonlus, assisted by the choristers, celebrated the "Fanlchedo" for requiem and eulo gized Gen. Koridratenko as "the soul of the siege, for when he died the fortress fell. 1 ' •/■ ■ J ■ -~*. -ft- CUSTOMER ASSAULTS GROCER Stranger Strikes L. Hutchlnaon on the Head With a Section of Gas Pipe and Is Given a Thrashing L. Hutchinßon, proprietor of a gro cery store at 835 South Broadway, nar rowly escaped a severe beating by a stranger early yesterday morning. At about 5:30 o'clock a man who has been a regular customer for several days entered the store and bought a dozen egjs. Theso were given to him and he handed Hutchinson one dollar. Hutchinson handed him back 60 cents. When he had returned the change tc his etistomer the man pulled a large piece of gas pipe from under his coat and struck Hutchinson a severe blow on the head. A struggle ensued between them, but the man failed to land another blow. Seeing that he could not master the grocer he ran outside and escaped. Several persons were standing out side, but mado no effort to assist Hutchlnson. Later in the morning Hutchinson called at the receiving hos pital to have his injuries attended. He was unable to furnish a description of the man. DRAWS A LESSON FROM BABYLON DR. MYERS PREACHES SERMON ON ATONEMENT Graphically Portrays Tragedy of the Doomed City and Brings His Hear ers to Understand Parallel With Modern Conditions The opening services of the Day of Atonement, the most solemn in the Jewish calendar, were held last even- Ing at Temple B'nal B'rlth and the Synagogue Beth Israel. At the former Dr. S. Hecht preached on "The Willing Messenger." The traditional music was rendered. At the Synagogue Beth Israel Dr. Isadore Myers preached an eloquent sermon, likening the vices of the pres-i ent day to those of ancient Babylon, He said in part: "It is the last night of Babylon, the mightiest and most beautiful city of the ancient world. The Babylon with her beautiful temples, she that was the empress, the proud, is now on the eve of being conquered by the power ful legions of the Medes and Persians, who are at the gates. "People are given up to life. There Is revelry and all sorts of orgies, and the enemy outside the gates. In the temple Is the king presiding over a thousand lords of the realm and the ladles of the harem and during the feast the king sends for the golden vessels and they drink. "There are numerous Images of gold and silver and they worship them and drink out of the vessels taken from the temple of the law. The enemy is still without. "Drink! Drink, oh, Babylon! This is your last night and that of your king. The clashing of arms "Bholl take the place of the clashing of cups and wine will turn into blood. The thousand lords shall be stalbed to the heart and the work of the conquering Medes is established. Death Sits Enthroned "There is another king in the pal ace. Death sits enthroned on the dead. "The king is arrested by the sign of a hand. Lights are put out and the hand writes on the wall in letters of fire. The meaning no one knows. At last the king offers the purple and the golden chains and one-third the kingdom, but no one can tell the meaning. The dowager mother turns 1 finds tho king in terror and she, comforts him, asking that. the vener able seer of the Jews be summoned. "Daniel, covered with age and hon ors, appears before the frightened king and speaks. 'Oh, king, your father had been taught a lesson which humbled him. You have not humbled yourself and you have lifted yourself up against tho Lord of Heaven. You have com mitted sacrilege and taken the pure and holy vessels and defiled them — you and your lords and women of the hnrem. You who have glorified gods of gold and brass that cannot see, neither hear nor think, and the God in whose hands is your breath and destiny — Him you have not glorified. There you read your doom. God has weighed you in the balance and found you want ing." "That night Babylon fell. The king was killed and the Persians were the conquerors. "Friends, Is it not true with all of us? Are we not at a banquet of life, enjoying lawfully or unlawfully all the pleasures we can reach? We are forgetting the enemy Is very near. Death Is outside the gates. The citadel of our life Is being besieged and yet we sip and sip of the pleasures of life, and the enemy is without. "Sometimes we are suddenly start led when we realize fate is writing something 1 for us, some mysterious message that may terrify us. "Then our mother— sweet, dear mother — our religion, addresses us in order for us to know what fate is writ ing. The heavenly appointed judge, our own conscience, listens to what we are. "It is on this day of atonement every Israelite listens to his own con science. Let it speak without flattery, lift the veil and tell us the truth as we are and not as we would appear. "You have been given the vessels of God's temple and have actually been drinking to excess. Think of the holy vessels God has given vs — vessels taken from the holiest heaven and bestowed upon you. Have you abused them? "Have you not given the best for the gold and sliver? What sacrifice for the mighty dollar have you not made? Do you think that in a moment God can forget all this?" "There is a pair of scales suspended from the throne of God and all must be weighed In it. Will you be found wanting? Sons and daughters of Israel, be true to your heritage; re spect your parents next to God. On this day will God make atonement for you." GEN. W. T. CLARK DYING NEW YORK, Oct. B.— General Wil liam Thomas Clark, only surviving ad jutant general and chief of staff of General Grant's army of Tennessee, is dying 1 from cancer In St. Luke's hospi tal. He was brought from his home in Washington, D. C. to this city two weeks ago in the hope that nn opera tion would save his life. His wife, three daughters and son accompanied Dr. B. Farquhar Curtis performed the operation, but the advanced age of tho patient could not withstand the strain, and it Is thought his death will occur within a few hours. BIG LOAN FOR VICEROY LONDON, Oct. 8. — Correspondents of the Morning Post at Shanghai ana Hongkong say that the Chinese gov ernment has loaned to Viceroy Chang Chi Tung $5,500,000 at 4% per cent for the final return to China of the Han kow-Canton railway concessions, the amount to be secured by the opium rev enues of the provinces of Hupe and Hunan and of Canton. Of this amount the correspondents say $2,000,000 was paid to the viceroy on Saturday and the remaining $3,600,000 will be sent to New York. SHAH OF PERSIA MUST HIRE HOUSE BIG HOTELS DO NOT WANT HIM AS GUEST Former Senator Dorsey Coming Back to New York to Live — Mrs. Astor's Secret of Keep. Ing Young i Special Correspondence of The Herald. NEW YORK, Oct. B.— The coming of the shah of Persia to New York, which, It is understpod, will take place in the near future, will be marked by an unique feature. Of all the magnificent hotels that have been erected in Man hattan It is not likely that the doors of one will be opened to receive him. He will have to buy a house and dwell there or take up his quarters in a sec ond rate hostelry. But what will most astonish him in New York will ba the tall buildings. He will think he has made a trip with Col. Younghusband to Lhassa, the seat of government in Thibet. He will see at a glance how similar the Bowling Green building is to the slde-hlll palace of the grand llama. The shah has a habit of Insisting that everything he eats be flr3t tasted by somebody else. There is a deal of bad food In Persia and the shah Is to be credited with sense. What he actual ly fears is poison. Several shahs of his family have gone 'to eternal bliss by the intermediation of poison placed In their wine or paties. There Is a woman In New York who makes it a business to choose your perfumes for you. "How much money does it take to keep a fashionable woman In per fumes?" was asked of her the other day. "About $50 a week," said she. "That Is a dollar a week. This is a low esti mate. If the woman is very fashion able and if it is her desire to keep right at the height of style it costs more, say $5 a week, sometimes $10. "The idea Is to perfume your gowns, your wardrobes, your house and all your possessions. There must be a lasting fragrance which is easily de tected and which never wears off. "The trouble with the amateur Is that she uses perfumes too heavily. She douses herself with scent one day and forgets to put any on the next day. The result is that she Is always either too lightly or too heavily scented. "Perfumes are like wine. The longer you keep them the better they are. Perfume, freshly added to the cos tume, 5s nn abomination. Put on as it should be put on it is a delight." It is reported here that former Sen ator S. W. Dorsey, now a resident of Los Angeles, is coming back to New York. All his troubles growing out of the Liquid Air company have been amicably adjusted. Whether he and his associates have followed the admira ble example of Charles M. Schwab Is not known. There was a time when "Steve" Dorsey, aa he was popularly called, was the Idol of his party. Few men now living will forget the dinner eriven to him at Delmonico's In the February that followed Garfleld's elec tion. The proudest nnd most honora ble men In New York were there. He was the guest of honor and Gen. Grant sat by his side. Cfen. Arthur, vice president-elect, was there. John Jacob Astor, father of "Wally," sat beside Dorsey. Among the "also present" were Beecher, Boutwell, Windom, Fre llnghuysen. Hamilton Fish, Noah Davis, E. W. Stoughton, Levl P. Mor ton, Senator Platt. Hugh Hastings, Der>p.w, Governor Hovt, Georee Bliss, J. Pierpnnt Morean, Judge Dillon, Jay Gould, Frank Work, Horace Porter nnd Gen. Woodford. In all the speeches Mr. Dorsey was eulogized as the exem plar of "practical politics." George H. Routwell of Massachusetts was par ticularly fulsome in his praise. It was not until July of the next year that S. W. Dorsey explained In his own signed testimony the methods he used in carrying Indiana. Here are his own words: "Each one of these men, nearly 5000 in number, reported what they could do and how much it would take to in fluence people to a change of thought. We paid $20 to some and as high as $75 to others, but we took care that the three men from every township should know Just what each got. There was no chance for 'nigging.' There; that's all there was in carrying Indi ana In October!" The secret of health 'and beauty does not seem to be a great secret after all. Mrs. John Jacob Astor, who has been called a great beauty on both sides of the Atlantic, was in New York today and Bhe revealed her "secret." This is the way Mrs. Astor herself told of the simple plan she has adopted to pre serve her freshness and beauty: "I live simply, take adequate exer cise, eat rationally, act with delibera tion and get plenty of rest." A month ago Lillian Russell gave the same prescription; Mrs. Leslie Carter has been giving it for three or four years; Pattl and Bernhardt have been handing It out for twenty years and every sensible woman over 30 knows it by heart. Down in Little Syria there ia a lit tle Jewelry shop kept by a dark-eyed dark-skinned Syrian. Here you will find candlesticks, daggers, bejeweled vinaigrettes, bracelets, watch fobs, bon-bonnleres— everything that you can think of that you have ever seen In this line In a curio shop. There are some very exquisitely enameled mirrors and trays; these are the pride of the Syrian workman. It Is here that the collector from an uptown store finds his jewelry. These articles that sell at fabulous prices on the avenue, or even on Broad way, are trinkets of small expense. If you know a good Syrian you may pur chase them for a very small sum, yet if they were displayed on the counters at this price you would not deign' to look at them. It is announced that no liquors will be sold In the new Hotel Gotham, at the southwest corner of Fifth avenue and Fifty-fifth street, recently opened to receive patrons. Rumor had It that the management of the new hotel, In order to circumvent the law which makes it unlawful to sell liquor within 200 feet of a church, had arranged to establish a wine cellar and bar In an adjoining building, communicated with by means of a subterranean passage. This, however, is now denied by tha management. It was nnnounced that no attempt whatever would be made to purvey wines or liquors to patrons, but that those who desired wines with their meals might have them through pur chase near by. In other words, the diner desiring a bottle of champagne will have only to order, when it will be got outside the 200-foot limit and placed before him.

Schususs, a young Russian, supposed to be Count Constantln Stranzinskl, is studying railroading In this country. He is not taking a roursa in any col lege or technical school, but is at work on tho New York Central railroad, learning the business from the bottom up. He Is saitl to be a son of the presi dent of the Trans-Siberian railroad of Russia, and his purpose is to aid his father in Introducing American meth ods in his native country. Count Constantin has been in this country about six weeks. He selected the New York Central as a good road to study, and after presenting letters to the officials at the Grand Central station was given an opportunity to look into the methods of the various ex ecutive departments. He has stated that he intends studying all branches of railroading in this country. The count in very unassuming In his man ner. He wears clothing purchased ready made and of about the quality a railroad brakeman would wear. He is about five feet seven inches in height and weighs 160 pounds. The first thing that catches the eye of the visitor to the office of William Travers Jerome In the Criminal Courts building Is a plain cardboard sign. It says: "Open Game." The sign Is a souvenir of one of the district attor ney's raids on gambling houses. The little piece of cardboard was posted for a number of years over a poker table in a well known gambling house, and It informed the patrons of the house that he who had the price to buy a "stack' could sit in if there was a vacant seat. If the sign meant anything in the gambling house it means as much and more In the district attorney's office, as conducted by Jerome. Anyone can sit in, and anyone will get a play from the boss dealer of criminal law in the county. How many people know what the flag of Columbia university looks like? Those who are curious to find out may do so almost any afternoon by visiting Momlngslde Heights. As it floats from the tall staff in front of the university library the flag Is not only pretty to look upon but of Interest because of its historic associations, for It consists solely of a royal crown of England out lined in white on a background of pale g reen _ w hat a woman would call Nile green If It were a piece of dress goods. Columbia Is apparently proud of its royal charter from George 11. One of the queer Institutions of the postoffice building Is the federal cat brigade. This numbers about fifty ex tra good ratters of all ages, sizes and colors, which roam night and day the large sub-cellars where the federal mail sacks are deposited. The upkeep of the brigade is provided for in a special an nual appropriation by congreßS. They kill thousands of rats every year. Raw meat is fed to" them every morning- Just enough to keep them in capital fighting temper and yet leave an ap petite. - GOTHAMITE. Always.

RAIDS RESORT OF GAMBLERS DISTRICT ATTORNEY LEADS OFFICERS Ten Persons Are Arrested and Para phernalla Is Confiscated ts Be Used In Evidence at the Trial Deputy District Attorney Fleming led a raid early yesterday morning on a resort on the Mission road one block beyond the car line, near Eastlake park, in which ten Los Angeles men were arrested, thousands of poker chips, dozens of decks of cards and a quantity of-llquor were secured by the raiders. ■ ■ According to the deputies and arrest- Ing officers, the game was conducted to rob players brought in by "cappers." Red wine and whisky were used, assert the officers, to befog the brains of the players and then cheat them out of their money. Those arrested were Chria Tllley, said to be the proprietor; J. K. Dixon, C. W. Dillon, A. M. Ferguson, C. E. Johnson, George Schultz, Jack Wilson of 1617 Paloma street, R. T. Minyard of 852 East Fifty-fourth street, W. Miller of 703 South Main street and G. Chavls. For some time complaints have been made to the district attorney, but he was unable to gather sufficient evi dence to warrant action until yester day, when the raid was made. The of ficers gathered about the house and without a moment's warning swooped down on the place at 3 o'clock and captured the players and the parapher nalia. G. Chavls was winner in the gams and the only man wh» did not protest against arrest, because he is deaf and dumb. Threats were made, but the of ficers gave no head to them.
