Arizona Women Cant Take
Eggnog for Weaf Hearts or
Flavor Calces With Extracts
Phoenix, Ariz., Jan. 13 An Arizona
husband may not legally give his wife
eggnog to relieve her weak heart, nor
can Arizona women use lemon extract
in flavoring their pies and cakes, if
the extract has in it any alcohol.
An opinion to this effect has been
rendered by Wiley Jones, attorney
general of Arizona, who holds that the
Arizona prohibition law cannot be sus
pended in favor of the eggnog or lemon
extract emergencies. Concentrated cof
fee also came under the ban.
The attorney -general rendered the
opinion in reply to a large number of
inquiries concerning the scope of the
"Nothing that anyone can use as a
beverage which may intoxicate can be
sold in the state."
Stabbed four times by an unknown
assailant, Santa Sandoval, a Mexican
woman, aged 40, died at the emergency
hospital in the police station shortly
before 9 oclock Tuesday night.
The tragedy occurred at the corner
of Tenth and El Paso streets about
8:30 oclock. Officers C. A. Simpson
and Ivy Finley were about a half block
from the corner when the former heard
a cry. They found the Mexican womtin
in a dying condition. S. T. Rodriguez,
who was also in the vicinity, heard
the same cry and saw a man strike
the woman with a knife. He claims to
have fired a pistol shot at the man
who ran in the direction of the canal.
Nc arrests have been made.
The woman was hurried to the emer
gency hospital and died a few minutes
after arrival. Before her death she
gave the officers her name, said she
lived near the river and declared she
did not know who stabbed her. On
the body were four knife wounds.
The first conviction for violation of
the new traffic ordinance was secured
for the city in the corporation court
Tuesday afternoon when the driver of
ear 2145. who gave his name as "John
Doe," was fined $2 for speeding.
The offence was committed Sunday
night, when Doe is alleged to have
driven his car at a high speed along
Boulevard. Officer W. C Henderson
appeared against the young man, stat
ing that he and other officers were
driving at the.rate of 20 miles an hour
along the street when the car whizzed
past them.
Leandro Cassidillo, driving a wagon,
ran into a Hotel Taxicab & Baggage
company car on Magoffin Tuesday
night. O. C. Crismor, of the auto com
pany, stated Wednesday morning that
the. car was standing at the time and
that the Mexican, driving on the wrong
side of the street, deliberately collided
with the machine. A charge of being
drunk was filed against CassIJillo. The
automobile was only slightly damaged.
Thomas Williams, driving a nickel
car, was arrested Wednesday morning
on a charge of reckless driving. It is
alleged that the driver of the car,
rounding the corner at the T. M. C. A.
building collided with the machine of
I R. McClintock, who was driving
north on Oregon. The nickel car es
caped without damage, and Mr. Mc

El Paso Sees Poor Little Ricli Girl
-::- -:!l:- -:j:- -::- -:!!:-Beautiful
Play Witk Pretty Pictures
A Los Angeles critic recently said
that he would rather have written "The
Poor Little Rich Girl" than to have
been the author of "The Bluebird." To
have been the author of either would
have been honor enough. Leaving out
comparisons, any El Pasoan who was
at the Texas Grand last night would
have been proud to be the creator of
such a beautiful nlav as 'The Poor
I Little Rich Girl." Somebody has de
scribed it as "a child s play for grown
ups," and the description is about as
accurate as anything that could be ap
plied. It is full of childish things and
when a child in a play fails to appeal
then It is a peculiar audience, and
when it is such a different child play,
there is more reason for it to charm.
It is full of so many subtle things, so
much keen sarcasm, things that re
quire a close following, that it would
never be linked with those plays called
plotless. I is not so heavy with plot
anu situation as to do tiresome i.ir
from it but "The Poor Little Rich
Girl" is the sort of play that you have
to watch every minute to get all the
good things in it but your interest is
so keen after a few minutes of intro
duction to the characters, that it is a
pleasure to watch you can't keep
from it.
"The Poor Little Rich Girl" is the
only child of rich parents of a father
too busy making mor.ley to pay her
any attention, and of a mother too
busy with the social bee to get ac
quainted with the little one. The re
sult is that she is left at the mercy of
strangers those hired to look after
her the governess, the teacher of
French, the teacher of German, the
teacher of music, the dancing master,
the maljs and the men servants. She
has everythinp except the things a
child wants'. She can't romp in the
streets, she can't have playmates and
she can't make mudples; it must all be
'make believe" with her if she wants
to have fun like other children. It is
een "make believe" when she wants
her father and mother to kiss her
goodnight; they arc so busy with so
cial affairs that she just has to make
believe they are with her.
Then comes the night when the gov
erness slips off on a pretense of illness
and the maid gives the little girl an
overdose of a sleeping potion so that
she, too, may have the evening off. The
child is discovered sleeping the sleep
of near death in the reception room of
the great mansion while her father and
mother are entertaining at a dinner.
Then comes the wonderful part of the
play, the dream scenes of the child.
The little girl In her delirium lives
among the people who have surrounded
her, but now she sees them as they
i tally are As she dreams, as she sees
In her delirium, the scenes are enacted
upon the stage. The good doctor, the
old organ grinder of whom she is, so
fond, the jolly plumber, her Teddy

State of Texas Alleges the
Payment of Tremendous
Sums by Breweries.
Austin, Texas, Jan. 13. A brewery
lobby in congress and $19,000,000 re
ceived by the United States Brewers
association in the last five years for
anti-prohibition work, are allegations
made by attorney general B. F. Looney
in the suit filed in Hopkins county
court against the seven leading brew
eries in Texas. - - j
He asks for maximum penalties of
$21,749,700 and -the forfeiture of their
charters, because, ho alleged, they paid
the poll taxes of anti prohibition voters
and spent corporate funds influencing
elections and liquor legislation in vio
lation of their charters and franchises.
Hunch finckeil the Lobby.
One of the exhibits in the 1400 type
written pages embraced in the petition
is a letter' dated October 19, 1905. at
Paris, France, from the late Adolphus
,Busch, of St Louis, to Zane Cetti, of
Fort Worth, which said in part:
"We must pay over to the United
States Brewers' association whatever It
may require to represent us properly
before congress, where we have most
important bills to defend. We must
defeat that Hepburn-Dolliver bill,
which is most dangerous and antagon
istic to our Industry and which makes
prohibition possible."
Chnrgen Buying of. Voir.
In the last 12 years the seven brew
eries in the Texas Brewers' associatiou
taxed themselves more than $1,000,000
for political activities, the petition
states. Regular dues amounted to
$COO,000 additional. Buying negro votes
is specifically alleged. Correspondence
on the subject of paying their poll
taxes is submitted.
Washington, D. C, Jan. 13. Having
a majority of only 30 votes, the cause
of woman suffrage lost in the house of
representatives Tuesday, when the Mon
dell resolution to submit to the stat3
an amendment to the federal consti
tution enfranchising women received a
vote of 204 for and 174 against. A two
thirds affirmative vote was needed.
The announcement of the vote was
received with enthusiasm by rose be
decked antisuffragists and with dejec
tion by suffragists wearing purple and
yellow sashes. The balloting followed
a day of oratory. Party lines were not
closely drawn in the fight, though Dem
ocratic leader Underwood contended the
fight was a state issue, while Republi
can leader Mann was one of the chief
speakers for the suffragists.
An equal suffrage constitutional
amendment proposed by senator Cham
berlain, of Oregon, was defeated in the
senate, 35 to 34, on March 1.9, last. Suf
frage leaders declared the fight wal
for from ended.
E, A. Shelton's appointment as post
master at Ul Paso has been confirmed
by the senate and the new postmaster
will probably take office on Fedruary
24, when postmaster J. A. Smith will
retire at the expiration of his term.
The newly appointed postmaster will
make his bond at once and will ar
range for the transfer of the postof
fice at the time when the retiring post
master's time is up.
As all of the officials and employes
of the postoffice are under the civil
service rule, there will be no other
changes in the management of the of
fice when postmaster Shelton takes of
fice on February 24. M. L. Burleson
will continue as assistant postmaster,
C. C. Gibson as superintendent of malls
and Miss Erma Whitley as cashier.

the "Telltale Forest" from those who
the forest shows in their true colors
the two faced nurse, the snake in the
grass governess, the idle, gossipy so
ciety friends of her mother. She sees
her father as a man "made of money"
he really appears clothed in a cos
tume of dollars and cents her mother
carrying always in front of her the so
cial bee in her bonnet, carrying it so
that it prevents her embracing and
taking to her heart her little daugh
ter. Then the little dreamer enters the
land "where the candles burn at both
ends" and sees her father battling for
his life against his-financial enemies;
then she enters Robin Hood's barn,
"where society goes round and round, '
and sees how empty it all is, and final
ly, she rescues her father and mother
from the tentreles that have been hold
ing them and brings them back as
sane American father and mother. They
begin to care more for what really is,
than for what "people may sav."
While she has been dreaming all
these things while they are being en
acted allegorically upon the stage
the parents watching her sufferings in
the sick room are really awakened to
a realization of their neglect. The re
alities of the play skip from the first to
the third act, the latter taking up the
thread of '..he real happenings- where
they were dropped In the first. The
four scenes in the middle of the play
form the allegory, the child's dream. So
wonderfully well are they interwoven
that the audience does not for a mo
ment fail to understand, throughout
the allegory, just what is really going
on in the sick room. Both parents are
ready in the last act to be real father
and real mother to their little girl.

with a beautiful tableau, the little girl's
happy dream as she relaxes after the
awful all night ordeal following the
overdose of the sleeping potion, a pic
ture of the little girl, a little boy and
a beautiful big Collie dog on their way
to the fishing hole.
The play is in the hands of an excel
lent company with but few exceptions,
and the scenery is beautiful. The fath
er appears rather weak for the part,
especially in the earlier scenes of the
play, and some of the others might be
tetter suited to the characters they as
sume, but the organ grinder (J. Pal
mer Collins), the doctor (Horace Mitch
ell), and the Teddy Bear (Al Grady)
are splnedid. Miss Leonie Dana is a
wonderful "Little Rich Girl" and
makes the character most lovable.
It is a play that brings the tears and
the smiles and the real hearty laughs:
it is human; it tugs at the heart
strings one minute and tickles the pal
ate of humor the next. At other times
the two are so combined that it is a
perfect poem of neutral loveliness. Al
together It is worth anyobdy's evening.

Denver Paper Says Musical

Comic Is a Humdinger.
" 'Bringing Up Father' is one of the
cleverest cartoon series run in The
Herald or any other paper," said Len
