S Phillips, Arizom representative of the Xew York Life Insurance Co, who is in Tombstone today, says there is a serious question as to the justice and wisdom of such a law. "If the law does not prevent the company from doing business to its IcU capacity," said Mr. Phillips, "then the company can progress bit if the law dees prevent the company from full exercise of its power, the company must read) a point in its career where progress is no longer possible; progress is an indication of health of vigor while lack of progress means stagna tion, death and decay. If law is al iosed to interfere with reasonable pro gress and development, it becomes ty-anny; and tyranny is the highest type of injustice. "Xow, here is a life insurance com pany whose possible life and use' ul ness are dependent upon the laws gov erning its operations, a mutual com. pany, composed solely of its own policy holders without any capital stock; whose cost of operation is paid by tie policy holders and whose net profits are paid to the policy holders in the form of aunual dividends. If this company's operations are limited to onp-half their normal capacity, annu ally, then certainly the policy holders lose by the limitation. This law is therefore unjust to them, and ;t should be so amended as to permit a company to grow within reasonable limits or should be repealed outright,' o Flashlight Picture Breaks Up Dance A kodak fiend who took a flashlight pictured the 'Devil's Dance' at South Side Park last night, broke up the big Indian dance given by Chief Dan Higas and the members of his band In spite of the injunction of the chief, that no pictures should be taken of the affair, camera operators were much in evidence. The dance had been in progress for some time before nne of the elan, more nervy than any of the others, set off a charge of flash powder. The dance stopped at once and the braves could not be induced to proceed further with the cer emonies. Chief Higas stated after the dance had broken up that he was very sorry that the ceremony should have ended in such an abrupt manner. The dance is a religious custom, at which the taking of photographs is held to be improper, and the braves could not be induced to go on with the ceremony, after the flashlight had been taken Globe Silver Belt.

Will Build Shops at Gleeson It developed late in the week that the Southern Pacific railroad intends to more the roundhouse and round house superintendent from IVarce to Gleeion thus transferring all the ac tivities incidental to the lay-over and repair of locomotives from the old gold camp to the terminal of the line.

Visit of One of The Real Old Timers Tombstone was visited by ono of the genuine old timers yesterday in the person of "Johnnie" Behan. When Cochise was segregated from Pima c-uinty at the legislative session of 1880 81, Gen. John C. Fremont was g ivernor of Arizona. Among the list of appointees selected to fill the dnlorent positions, John II. Behan was named as sheriff. Those were the days when Tombstone was the typical frontier town and could alwa)s be relied upon to furnish at least one man for breakfast every morning. The office of sheriff at that time was by no means a sinecure. The country was wild and woolly. The Earp boys. Doc Holliday, Luke Short, Bat Mastersoo, Cha'lie Storm', Dave Xeacle and other men with a reputa tion and handy gun,raade Tombstone their habitat, and it required cmsid erable courage as well as a whole lot of diplomacy to fill the position of a peace officer. It was during Behan' incumbency of the sheriffs office that the fight occurred between Virgil Earp, who was city marshal, and his passe, with the Clanton and McLowry brothers, when Tom and Frank McLowry and Billy Clanton wre killed nerly in front of The Prospector office. The Earps and Doc Holliday, after the slaughter, barricaded tliemeelves in a room of the Grand hotel on Allen street and refused to submit to arrest. Later Virgil Earp was shot in the arm while emerging from the Oriental saloon, his arm being left use lees Morgan Earp was killed in the Billiard Parlors by one of the fuedists, while Holiday left for Colorado where he died of consumption. "Johnuy" Behan, as he is known 'o the old timer, is al nays welcome to the town. He is one of the men who has taken a prominent part in the affairs of Arizona in its early days and helped in making history for Tombstone and Cochise county. 9 to 4 in Favor of Courtland The ball game which was scheduled for yesterday on the local iiamond be tween the Tombstone nine and the Courtland team was called at 4 o'clock p. m. with Tombstone at the bat The first exciting incident of the game was a strike by Dan Critchley which culminated in a home run, causing much excitement on both sides Dur ing the course of the games Frank Crable of the local team, stole four bases and made eleven strike oute. Although Tombstone lost the game it was well played; the same was full of errors, and the local nine was short five of its regular players, whose places had to be filled by outsidere. G. Headrick and George Brown also played exceptionally good ball, and the game was very interesting.

In the arrest at LaPata, a hamlet in Sotiora on the Arizona border, of Francisco Dursngo, the Mexican officials believe they have captured the di tctor of a gigantic smuggling scieme Papers found on him indicated he carried on an extensile business in smuggling Chinese across the border. It eppeirs that he has gotten thousandsof coolies into this country in the past few years. Hundreds ot the Chinese he I been captured by the immigration authorities in Arizona and the immi gration headquarters at Tucson have been jammed nith this class of pris oners for a long time. However by far the greater part of those smuggled across the line by Durango have suc ceeded in getting into this country without capture. The man is said to have had a numbdr of associates help ing him on both sides of the line and further arrests are expected. A Bad County For Evil Doers From the grist the justice mill ground at Tombstone this term it is evident tint one Arizona county is to be reserved for peaceful and law abid ing citizens. Forty boarders for the territorial prison Is the bunch they sent up, and never once smiled while doing it. Yuma Enterprise. o A New Automatic Iceless Refrigerator M. K. Sipe of Benson, has just made an automatic icele's refrigerator ot his own invention, that not only keeps things cool, but is ant-proof. It is a wooden box covered with burlap, . a shallow pan ovei the top contains water, and into this strips of cloth have one end immersed, the strips passing up over the edge and then down to connect with the burlap cov ering at regular intervals all around the outside. Editor Shinn of the Benson Press, says of it: The refrigerator stands on four short legs in a shallow dripping pan, and this pan is high enough from the floor to permit a vessel to catch the small amount of waete water from a spout coming from one side of the dripp'ng pan. The strips of cloth draw the water slowly from the top pan by capillary attraction, as a lamp wick dras oil, after once being sat urated, and keeps the burlap wet all the time, even more water than evap orates being drawn from the top pan in this way, though this could be di minished ly decreasing the width o the strips of cloth that convey the water from the top pan to the burlap covering. The water in the dripping pan pre vents ants from reaching the refriger ator. Evaporation from the burlap lowered tbe temperature 20 degrees in a short time. Three shelves inside are used to place tbe food. The lower part is cooler than the upper part, as cold air is the heaviest. A very soft pound of butter soon got quite firm in the new iceless refrigerator. Died in Tucson At Age of 110 Josefa de Oquibo, who was the old est woman in Arizona, died in Tucson Wednesday.
