Contests will occur ii ihc two prin ciple oflices in tho city, as far as re nuineratiyo positions aie concerned, thoo of tho city clerk nnd citj mar Ahal. Tor tho positions of major and cimucilnien, there will bo little opposi tion as in each of theso oflices but one regular candidate Is iu tho fiold. Tor the oflitu of city clerk, .Tames 11. Welch, incumbent; Charles Alex.in ler nn 1 H.iriy C Hnuser will be in tho race. K.ich of these three candi dates claims u stiong follow ing, and public opinion is divided as to tho out come ot this laic. In many quarters, tho incumbent tity cletk is considered to have tho shade, although only tho official gount of tho ballots will decide this phase of tho election. .For the otllcc of city marshal, It. M. Anderson, William ,). Lowthian, Louis Sleeker and -James Cochran will wage a hard fought battle. Mr. Anderson, who has occupied this oflico bor tho past two years, will bo well supported, and will in ike a hard light for tho po Mtion. With three opposing candidates to draw from tho Miters of this city, however, this nice will apparently bo very close and tho winner is as miiV'h in doubt as s the case of the candi date for tho city cletkship. Maurel Will Hun Tn tho Sixth ward, Andre Mauiol wtll opposo Henry W. Peiper for conn oilman, having decided to enter tho ii,ce without his nnnio appealing on tho ballots.

The eleventh hour knock by the polit ii nl enemies of It. M. Anderson, candi date tor city marshal, is tho knock of an unscrupulous coward and will make fi lends and supporters for Mr. Ander son in tho contest which will be on today. The matter of 1! M Anderson's eli gibility was thoroughly threshed out at tho election two years ago, when Mi Anderson was not a resident of the citv, and tho brightest and must learned legal lights in Globo held that theie was no legal reason why ho' should not make the race and hold the office- if electid. liaising tho question of his ineligibility on the eve of battle is so tainted with cowardice and savors so strongly of tho political trickster and w.ud politician as to arouse suspicion and to occasion but little apprehension among the friends of this deserving and populai candidate. It. M. Anderson, the present city mir shal and candidate for le election, has been a bonafido resident of Globo for practically twenty months and during that time has maintained a lesidence here. Some time ago Mr. Anderson's children became ill and under adviio of his family physician he lemoved Hill street school Chamber of Commerce City fire house Noftsger Hill school Bankers' Garden Maurel hotel nldcrinanic positions. J. W. Band hauer, First ward, Harry Rupkey, Sec ond ward; W. 11. Pnikes, Third wartl and William Mill Williams, Fourth ward, will make up the balance of the ticket for councilman. No Mayoralty Contest John D. C'oplen as mayor, will run without opposition. At tho city clerk's oiheo yestciday, everything was put in readiness lor to day's primaries. Tho poll lists have been eomploted and in addition supplementary lists, be iring the mines of thirty voters who registeied after tho closing of tho reg I'lar poll lists, have been prepared. As tho lesult, every voter in the city vhc registeied up to 5 o'clock yesterday aiternoon, may voto today without tho use of tho registration card. Tho city clerk's oflico will bo open t. -day nnd those who havo not already registered may do so dining voting hours. They will, of course, bo com pelled to show thejr registration card to secuio a ballot. Polla Open Ten Hours The polls will bo open at 8 o'clock this morning and will remain open un til li o'clock this afternoon. Tho out como of tho election should be known by 8 a 'clock this evening, with the possible exception of the North Globo piecinct, the leturns of which may bo dilflcu'lt to canvass. Although many primary elections in the past havo contained many more con testants than is tho case in the present campaign, tho registration of voters is unusiuilly heavy, indicating keen inter est m the rapes for those positions in which theio is a contest. Every one of tho 1,339 voters who aro ehgiblo to voto today havo registered this year, according to tho provisions of the new election laws and tho contest will prob ably draw -a leeord breaking otc for a primarv election. FUGE ADOPTED -.a them to his ranch, about two or time miles south of the city. Naturally, like all fatheis who havo a caro and lovo for their oflspnng, he has visited the littlo snilcrers at tjio ranch once or twice a week, but has not given up his place of abode in Globe Complying with the land laws of tho country, Mr. Anderson has main tamed residcnco on Ins ranch six months eich j ear, leaving the city lato in the evening and retu'rning to assume his duties early the following morning. Had theio been giound for any real apprehension regarding the eligibility ot 1. M. Anderson it wou'ld have been a very easy matter for the mai shnl to have brought his family back to tho city thirty or forty days ago and removed the opportunity for tho knock which has been administered without warrant and in a manner and at a tinio fully exposing the baseness of his political enemies. In a Florida case, recently decided by tho supicmo court of that state; the candid ite for citj marshal admitted that ho was not a resident of the city in which he was seeking office, but un der the Florida law which is identical iwith the Anona law on this question, lie held that there was nothing to pro vent hi ni from making tho rate and holding the olhce if chosen by the voters. The- contention was disputed by his political opponents and the case was carried to the courts. The finding of the loner court was in favor of the candidate and was approved by, the supreme court. There have been de cisions in a number of other states toi.V'hing on the same question and the courts have uniformly held that the candidate does not of necessity have to be a resident of tho city in which he is making the race for mnishal. City Attorney Allred holds that Mr. Anderson is clearly within the law and is a perfectly eligible candidate. The attempt to defeat Mr. Anderson 's candidacy by scheming politicians should bo answered by a strong and hearty indorsement ot the tried and trusted olhccr at tho polls today, and his would be traducers rebuked for their knavery. ATTACKS WE SRI Ballinger Hearing Dragging Wearily Before Impatient Investigators WASHINGTON', I). C, April 22. After attacking certain statements of Attorney General Wickersham's sum mary of tho Glavis case 'during the cross examination of the witness bo foro tho Dallingei-Pinehot investiga tion today, Attorney Biaudcis, counsel for Glav is, throw out a broad sugges tion that a statement was demanded months cailier than It had been pre paied to make it appear that Presi dent Taft's letter of vindication of Secretary Bollinger hid been based upon the alleged facts it contained. At tho White Houso and department of justice it is said that neither the piesident nor attorney geneial would comment on Hrandeis' intimations. Comparatively little progress was made with the inquiry despite the ap parently growing impatience of the committee to bring the hearing to a close. Tho committee probably will deculo tomorrow whether to hold the healings three days each week. STOIE NEW YORK, April 22.

Swope 's Body Roughly After Death PACKAGE OF CANDY ENTERS INTO CASE ii wy Stella Swope Taken With Typhoid After Receiving Gift from Ilvde KANSAS CITV, Mo , April 22. Sov en davs after Dr. 15. C. 11 de gave Mi--s Stella Swopo a box of candy the young woman doveloped typhoid fever, tisti fied Miss Anna Houlihan, a muse in the Swopo family, during tho murder trial this afternoon. For the first tinio in all tho broad investigation of the Swopo tragedies was the question of candy brought into the case. The mention of candy candy tame as a sui und lny counsel, Pi itting tilted bnik m piiso to Dr. Hyde un Hyde, who was sitti his chair, smilingly listening to the tes timony of the nurse, quickly moved over to his nttornoys, entenng into con versation with them. Mrs. Hyde soon joined the little group. For several minutes they talked earnestly. "It is a significant feature, but I cannot siy just what will develop from the investigation of it,' said 8poci.il Prosecutor James A. Reul, later. Attorneys for Dr. Hyde said they did not regard the testimony seriously. The death of Chrisman Swope and the illness of Margaret Jywopo was 10 view ell by Miss Houlihan, bhe caused tho threatened walkout of nmses al the Swopo home and deminded an in vestigation of Dr. Hyde oil December 18. Miss Houlihan was on the stand jiiac tically all day- Her tioYy was long and interesting. It was filled with striking utterances and vivid desiup tious that held the attention ot the spectators. At times her testimony was almost gruesome. In telling of Dr. Hydo's ac tion after Chrisman Swopo died, lying cross wise on a bed, sho said: "Dr. Hydo grasped the dead man by tho feet and turned him around m bed." "How did lie do it," asked Attorney Reed. "Roughly," she replied. In attempting to imitate the moans of Cluisman and Maigarct Swope, the witness gave utterance to a weird cry of anguish like that of a suffering ani mal, j The spectators, unaware of her inten tion to make tho sound, rose quickly from their seats, thinking some ill had befallen her. in His Honor beioie the presentation. His hasty de paituie occasioned much surprise, as ho roso abruptly and left the reception hall, just as the formal piesentation speech was to bo made. Several of his hosts followed him to the elevator and he informed them lie was tired of the formalities, but would rcceivo the punch bowl in his room if they would bring it there. The gift was later taken to his room. On account of tho visit of the prince being the lesult of a desire to study the military institutions of tho United States, military dignitaries j'oined the reception, among them being General Hairy and staff and Rear Admiral Mil ton, commandant at the naval training station at Huena.

MAY GET POWER President Towle of Chamber of Commerce Says Vi Is Feasible After Investigation Plenty Juice tlV Spare by Reclamation Service GREATLY REDUCED Globe and the .great Globe district will soon be supplied with electric power from Roosevelt dam, if a cam paign which has been taken up by tho chamber of commerce is successfully carried out, and this section of the country supplied with electricity at a rate of practically one half of its pres ent cost. This startling announcement was made yesterday by Presidjnt F. 1' Towle of tho chamber of commerce, who has been quietly investigating the matter of cheaper electric power for Globe for the past several weeks. As yet no active steps toward securing power concessions from tho government have been taken, but within a short time, the local commercial body will be well into the campaign for electricity at a rate which will permit this great forco to be generally used throughout the entire district. At the present time, a considerable amount of power geneiated at RoosO' velt is delivered to Phoenix, under coil' tract between tho reclamation service and the Pacific Gas &, Electric company. This power is sold by the government at tho rate of l'A cents jier killowatt, delivered at 1'Jioenix. Has Power to Spare It is known that the Roosevelt Mam will develop a greater amount of elec trie power than is being delivered to the Pacific Gas & Klectric company and it is the belief of Mr. Towle that the reclamation service will enter into a contract with this city to furnish power on practically tho same basis as it is delivered to fhoenix and that tins cie partment will probably be willing to construct transmission lines lioni Roosevelt to Globe, as was done with tne i'uoei. i. concern Mr. Towle's belief is based upon a quiet but extensive investigation and he is of the firm opinion tli.it tne ciiainuci of commerce will be able to secure pow er concessions from the reclamation scr v ice. "W'hen I say that Globe stands nn excellent chance ot securing electric power from the Roosevelt dam, I do so after a fairly careful investigation of the matter," said President Towle to the Silver Pelt yesterday. "With a largo amount of electric power being devlopcd at Roosevelt, within Gila county and within forty miles of this city, the expense of con struction of transmission lines to this city would notbc so great the reclania iion service could not well afford to deliver power to this district at the same rate paid by the Pacific Gas & Electric company of Phoenix, '.. cents per kilowatt. What is needed is a de terinincd campaign on the part of the business men of this district through the Globe chamber of commeice, and as this matter will be taken up at once, I am funily convinced that no insurmountable obstacles will be en coii'iiteied. Could Bo Financed "If tins power can be secured fiom the government, it would be nccessiry, of course, to loini a local concern to take charge of the project, as the gov ernment would only deliver the power in 'the condition it is developed at Roosevelt. To finance such a project would not bo expensive, considering the greatness of the pioject, howevei, and at a low contract rate from the Village Folk Show Respect and Love for Dead Author Preparations for Burial of Mark Twain Attended by Loving Tributes REDDING, Conn., April 2. The lit tle village of Redding is in mourning today for its benefactor and friend, Mark Twain. Tomorrow- morning, when the body is taken to tho train for New York, where funeral services will bo held in the I$nck church, business will be suspend ed and villagers and farmers from tho surrounding hills will pay their last tribute to the dead. All day the villagers passed the honse and parties in motor cars trom ncigli boring cities diovo up tho river road and stopped to look over the lowlands to Stormfield, on the lull. Late today the body was prepared for burial, dressed in the white flannel so constantly worn m the later years of ELECTRIC FROM 'MM v v RATE IS POSSIBLE government, electricity could still be furnished throughout the district at a rate which would be of great benefit to tho community-. "In order that the consumers of the district might be served with elec tricity at a fair price, the city would grant a franchise to the company m charge of its distribution, such Iran chise regulating the price at which the 'ju'ice' was to be sold. "Kven in the event that the reclama tion service would not agree to con struct transmission lines from Roose velt to Globe, the project would still be feasible. Such a line would not exceed $.)0,O0O in cost, in my opinion, nnd it is possible that by the construction of such a Hue, a better contract rate from the government might be secured. Power Much Needed "Cheap electric power would, in my opinion, bo one of the most potent fac tors in the development and upbuilding of the Globe district. The mining com panics throughout the district, for ex ample, are compelled to use oil or coal to develop power, steam or electric, as the case may be. Fuel of any kind is vcry expensive here and many concerns, both mining and manufacturing, that cannot operate profitably u'nder present conditions would be enabled to work at a profit with cheaper powei. "The same conditions would apply to business men and residents of this city. Electricity is one of the greatest con veniences of the ago and with this pow er furnished at a reasonable figure, practically every resident of the dis trict would be either directly or wili lectly benefited. "The matter will be taken up by the chamber of commerce with the rc lamation service at once "ami in my opinion, the project can be successfully earned out." Wlnle it has been generally believed in the past that the reclamation ser vice was unable to deliver electric pow er to this city by reason of the fact that the availablo supply bad been contracted for, Mr. Towle's investiga tious have apparently shown this belief to be a fallacy. That cheap electric power would be a great factor in the development cf this district is admit ted by all and while the chamber of commerce is taking up a gigantic pro ject, it is one which if successfully- cai ried out will be of great benefit to Gila coirnty generally ODD FELLOWS AND REEEKAHS TO GIVE ANNUAL PROGRAM Whit promises to be a very entci taining fratenuu affair will be given Moii(Tay night, when the Odd Fellows and Rebekahs will hold an anniveisiry social.
