Fine Program of Bacing and
Sports and Big Display of
State Products.
(By Geo. H. Clements.)
Phoenix, Ariz., Oct 3. Arizona's
first state fair, the eighth annual fair
to be held since the Territorial Fair
association was organized, will be held
October 2S to November 2, inclusive,
and promises to be the greatest of the
many great fairs held since Arizona
besan holding fairs.
The present fair commission is made
up of Hugh E Campbell, of Flagstaff,
president; J. R. Henderson, of Bisbee,
treasurer, and John J. Keegan, of

as a plain 'member;" C. B.
Wood, of Phoenix, secretary.
Horse racing, both harness and run
ning, have always been the features of
Arizona fairs, and this year will be no
exception, but an attempt will be made
this year to bring the exhibits in the
agricultural, horticultural, cattle, horse
and mule, dairy, sheep, swine, culinary
and domestic science departments up
to par. Liberal premiums have been
offered in all these and in other minor
departments and special efforts have
been made to induce Arizona farmers,

Commissioner Keegan probably
voiced the sentiment of not only the
State Fair commission, but of the ad
ministration and of the great majority
of the people of tHe state, when he
said while here on fair business: "In
my opinion'' a state fair should be as
full an exposition of the resources,
natural and otherwise, of the state as
it is possible to make It The amuse
ment features are all right We must
have them as a diversion from the
more serious educational instructive
side of the fair. At present mining is
probably Arizona's greatest industry,
but the time is rapidly approaching
when it must be overshadowed by agri
culture in its various orancnes, sucn as
fruit growing and gardening. The
state fair should be the place where
the farmers and fruit growers of the
various sections of the state get' to
gether once a year and compare notes
forJthefrmntual,-sotfar"iEmuIatIen to
excel should be stimulated and the
only way to arouse a spirit of educa
tion Is to hffer inducements to farmers
to exhibit their products.'
Many Amusements. ;
As an amusement enterprise Arizo
na's first state fair will exceed any of
fairs that have gone before. For har
ness races purses and stakes totaling
$20,000 have been provided, while
$3000 has been setjaslde for the run
ners. Some of the best harness horses
in the country will . contest for the
purses and stakes and as the track Is

testified he had given $150,000 to the
Republican campaign of 1904 and $30,
000 to the Republican campaign of
In an hour's questioning Mr. Morgan
denied emphatically the charge by Chas.
Edward Russell, of New York, that
president Roosevelt had once tele
phoned for a campaign contribution;
declared he never had any communica
tion with president Roosevelt and as
serted that he knew of no conferences
among financial men in 1904 or 1908
to agree on supporting Republican or
uemocrauc presidential candidates.
He confirmed the testimony of Geo.
R. Sheldon that he had given $100,000
to the Republican national fund o'f 1904,
and added that he later gave $50,000 to
the socalled "Harriman" fund of $240,
000, raised for the New York state com
mittee. He asserted no contribution had ever
been given by his firm or himself with
the Idea of securing any favors thereby.
He was especially interested In the 1904
campaign, he said', solely for the wel
fare of the country and the people at
large. That was the only interest he
said, that had guided him In making
contriDutions to political parties.
The testimony of Mr. Morgan sup
ported that of Mr. ShelUbn that the so
called "Harriman fund" of 1904 had
been raised as an emergency fund to
help the New York state committee. Mr.
Morgan said he understood that to be

Thinks Rogers Contributed.
Judge Duell, when called to the stand,
said he knew of no contribution by
John D. Archbold, under that name. He
knew there had been "several contribu
tions of $100,000 each" and that the in
surance companies each had given $50,
000. "Did you know any members of the
Standard Oil company beside Mr. Arch
bold who contributed to the 1904 cam
paign?" "I think H. H. Rogers contributed,
but I do not .know the amount"
Mr. Duell said that Mx. Bliss told him
in 1904 most of the banks and trust
companies in New York city had con
tributed. Duell said contribution's In 1904 were
collected by E. T. StQtesbury In Phila
delphia; Charles, Darafe in Chicago:
George Von IiOlSyJ,HWW- secretary or

Boy Declines to Be Eeleased
Unless His Father Is Also
Given Freedom.
It is learned that the three members
of the Gonzalez family were not exe
cuted at Ojlnaga, but are federal pris
oners, according to letters received. by
Alberto Gonzalez and others of the
family in Juarez. Pablo Gonzalez, for
mer deputy collector of customs of
Juarez and a customs broker .for many
years there, Is held prisoner at the
city of Chihuahua. He was captured in
Conchas, after the battle of Ojlnaga.
A pretty story of filial devotion
comes with the details of the family
adventures with the rebels. Kbberto
Gonzalez, the youngest member of the
family and only 19 years of age, was
taken prisoner at Cuchillo Parado. but
released after making a plea for his
n Deny. .Later he heard tnat his father, i
Pomposo Gonzalez, who Is former cus-1
toms collector of Juarez, was held pris
oner at Ojlnaga.
Alone, the young man walked to
Ojlnaga and presented -himself before
the federal commander. He said he
preferred to be with his father than to
enjoy liberty. He consequently was
held. Hearing of the detention of his
father and the younger brother, Fran
cisco Gonzalez, who had not partici
pated in the revolution, left Juarez a
tew days ago and journeyed to Ojlnaga.
He saw that the old man and the boy
were properly fed ana clothed. Word
came for the 40 odd prisoners taken at
Ojlnaga to march overland toward the
Orient line, where they(wiU be sent by
train to the state capital. Francisco
bought a horse on which his father
could ride, and the younger prisoner
marched with the 200 infantry which
acted as escort for the prisoners.
Attorneys Raise Point That No Crime
Committed Until Smuggling Is
Actually Accomplished.
A legal point has been raised by the
attorneys which may throw all of the
ammunition smuggling cases out of the
federal court The attorneys contend
that in the cases charging only smug
gling and In which the defendants were
arrested In El Paso before they at
tempted to cross the river, it was ne'ees-
sary for the actual smuggling to have j
taKen piace oeiore tne crime was com
pleted. This point was. raised b7 at
torney Tom Lea before judge Burns at
the last term of the federal court but
.the, federal judge overruled him and
sent a'-number ofthe- cmen charsed. with
ammunition smuggling to jail.
Judge T. S. Maxey is inclined to hear
the point fully discussed by the law
yers and he has set Friday afternoon
for the time to hear the arguments and i
to have authorities presented by the
attorneys to prove tnelr point The
point that has been raised will have no
effect upon the conspiracy cases, as it
is not necessary, the attorneys say, for
the act of smuggling to have been com
mitted where conspiracy is alleged.
When Jose Mesa, who was arrested
downtown for having ammunition In
his possession, attempted to plead guil
ty Wednesday afternoon, judge Maxey
deferred, hearing his plea until he could
have an opportunity to hear the argu
ment of the attorneys In similar cases.
Should the argument which will be
presented by attorney Lea and others
who represent men charged with smug
gling, be sustained by the federal Judge
a latge number of the cases which the
department of justice has been work
ing on will b thrown out of court
