Unjust to Life
Insurance Companies
Regarding the injustice and unwis
dom of the Xew York law limiting the
business of life insurance companies
operating under the laws of the state,
to one hundred and fiftv millions o
dollars new business annually, C. 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limits or should be repealed outright,'
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

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. The
score was 9 to 4 in favor of Courtland

Noted Smuggler
Is Captured
An El Paso dispatch sav a. 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 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
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.

Tombstone Had a
Modest Celebration
Despite the rain of yesterday Tomb-eton-
had quite a celebration in honor
of Independence day. lhe Tombstone
youth was in his glory and had fire
crackers galore. During the morning
Allen street was a scene ol much mer
riment and excitement. That thor
oughfare was converted into a race
course and a number of prizes brought
forth a surprising number of contes
tants Sack races, potato races, foot
acres and other exciting con
tests enlivened the day which waB
only abated by tbe rain aVout noun.
In the afternoon the ball game be
tween the Tomb'tone and Courtland
nines brought out a good crowd at the
ball grounds and was much enjoyed.
Altogether Tombstone's celebration
of the our natal day was safe, sane
and eminently conservative.
