He is the 3eading knight of the Phoenix lodge in addition to being a candidate for con gress when Arizona becomes a sure enough state. The only event, of the run from Phoenix to El Paso was the stealing of the two big banners which decprated the siies of the special train proclaiming to the world that Arizona and her statehood s-pecial was on earth.

Declares He Didn't Originate Settlement Scheme; Says Simmons and Turney Did. MAYOR OPPOSES PLAN ARDENTLY Alderman Percy McGhec, in the meet ing of. the city council Thursday, vig orously denied responsibility for tho plan to settle with the water company for the purchase of the plant by paying it ?300,000 cash and giving a note for 150,000. The plan was published In the morn ing paper Wednesday as a supposed communication, unsigned, and stated ,that this was Mr. McGhee's plan for settling the affair. Today, an inspired editorial vigorously commended Mr. Mc Ghee. But Mr. McGhee refuses to be commended. He says the plan was evolve1 by general manager H. J. Sim mons, of the water company, and his attorney, W. W. Turney, who asked him Into conference and urged him to pre sent It to the mayor. That the plan does not suit the may or, he did not hesitate to say to the council. "Yes, a nice proposition, that is," he exclaimed angrily. "The company comes and tries to interline the sense of the whole council. Give them all the money we've got? Yes. of course we will! That'll be a nice scheme, won't it?" Alderman McGhee hastened to say that It was all a misapprehension. "I want to state that at their request I met Messrs. Simmons and Turney, at which time this matter was broached," he sai3. "It was brought- up by Mr. Tur ney and we discussed it. They request ed me to make the proposition to the mayor. There are some who think I originated the whole thing.

W U..i .,.., Many Deaths in Lower End of the City Dr. Anderson Condemns Many Homes. FINDS THEM UNFIT TO HARBOR PEOPLE Numerous deaths in the south end of the city the past few weeks, mostly among Mexicans, has caused the health department to begin an Investigation of the district, and, from the report presented by health officer Anderson to the council Thursday morning, such an unsanitary condition exists that the J council will shortly take some remedial acton. "The health -department commenced its investigations the first of the month," said Dr. Anderson. VWe have gone over a portioti of the houses and the figures speak for themselves as to what was found. It is our Intention when we get through, to make some ' recommendations to the council." In the Jower end of town, the por tion being investigated, there have been on an average of 20 deaths a week for several weeks, with an in crease, if anything, as time wore on. A number of Infants died, but the mnjor itj were grown people. In the week ending Thursday, July 7, there were just a score of Mexican deaths, all in the portion of town south of the busi ness center. One negro also died in the district. The number of deaths led the health department to determine to ascertain the cause of this mortuary list every week, so much greater than the per centage of births. As a result of the special inspection, it was foumi that there are just 72 dwellings that are inhabitable today out of a total of 205 Inspected, these buildings being found to have proper ventilation, etc. Just 133 were declared uninhabitable by reason of not having sufficient doors, windows and other means of admit ting air to the interior, and being stuffj and ill-smelling. Some of them, also, had entrances tis though one was going into a cellar to get to the living rooms. These are also branded as unhealthy Most of the structures are of adobe, very few of wood or cement Thirty homes were found to be clean and sanitary, while 175 were reported in an unsanitarv condition, some of them filthy and diseas,e-breeding places as a consequence. In all this district, but fifteen places have sewer connec tions out of 205. It is probable that the council will decide upon a "clean up" and betterment of conditions of this section soon.

"Wj-ormng laws forbid it. and I wilf see that the laws are enforced. Per sonally I am not opposed to the sport and would enjoy seeing he match, but the law forbids such fights, and when I held up my rigfcj hand and took the oath of office, to uphold the laws, r meant it."
