Winslow, Arizona, May 16 A franchise was granted here today by a vote of 73 to 14, giving to the Winslow Electric Light and Power company the right to fur nish the town with electric light and power. The people of Winslow are jub ilant over the result of the elec tion, as it means that the town will soon be lighted and a long felt want will be filled.

To Build nany Ships For the Czar TRACK TAMPERED m Near Emporio, Kas., Caus ing Terrible Wreck The Santa Fe Offers $5,000 Re ward For the Conviction of the Wreckers Philadelphia, May 13. Eight battleships and many cruisers, armored and second-class, to cost approximately $65,000,000 will be built for the Russian gov ernment by American shipbuild ers, according to a representative of the Russian admiralty who has arrived here. This supports the statement in recent cable grams that a large part of the work of constructing the new Russian navy will come to the United States. In speaking of plans to increase the strength of the Russian navy the representative of the Russian , admiralty said that fifty-four ves sels in all, including destroyers, "would be built. He added that Chas M. Schwab and other Americans would surely obtain contracts for more than a third of the vessels to be built. After . a visit to the Cramp yards the Russian agent will go to New York to meet Schwab, who is soon to arrive from Europe. "Opportunity comes," said the old proverb, "with feet oi wool, treading soft." You must have the instinct of an artist for the appoaifches of this good genius. You must listen for it. Samuel Johnson. Emporia, Kas., May 15. San ta Fe passenger train No. 17 was ditched by wreckers east of here about 2:30 o'clock Sunday morning. Six passengers were injured, two of whom will prob ably dye. This is the fourth attempt that has been made to wreck a train in the same place during the past four months. This wreck was caused by removing the spikes and fish plates from two of the rails on the inside of a curve. The engine got safely over the two rails but the mail car was derailed and dragged for about a hundred yards. The express and baggage cars, the smoker and two of the day coaches were thrown off the track and landed across a ditch on the right of wav, but the two pullmans re mained on the track. A relief trbin was hurried to the scene and the injured were taken to Emporia. There is no clue to the wreckers. Three men were seen the night before near the How ard branch section house and a claw were missing from the house the next day, which were found in a pool of water nearthe wreck. The Santa Fe Railway Com pany offers a reward of $5,000 for evidence leading to the arrest and conviction of the party or parties who removed the spikes and fish plates and caused the wreck of the train.

Allen, a popular school teacher of Saco, Me. Whether spelled forward or backward, the name spells just the same, and it is a very rare happening that such a combina tion of letters is found.
