electricity to the city of Tombstone and
the people of the town at a nominal
According to the Tombstone man,
the figure quoted for the supply of elec
tricity was nominal and appeared to be
entirely acceptable to him.
The mill, from which the electricity
will be derived, is more or less in the
form of an experiment to determine
what results arc being had from the
mines of T-mbstone.
The mayor expressed the wish to Mr.
Douglas that an expert be sent to
Tombstone for the purpose of making
an estimate on the cost of wiring the
city and other costs nee ssar to the
installation of electric lights therer Mr.
Douglas told the visitor he had no such
expert. Accordingly, C. S. Thompson,

mote From Center of
PHOENIX. Jan.. 30- A rumor was
floating around the slate house today
that the- Hon. Chailrs T. Francis, the
orator of the Cochise county delegation
in the House, had sent urgent wires to
Senators Smith and Ashurst, and Con
gressman Hayden. urging them to at
once git busy and get Congress to pass
a bill removing the United States capi-
tol to a point nearer the central part
of-the United States. He is reported
to have wired them that an emergency
exists and that the Emergency Clause
should be attached. He '.s said to have
wired that the "emergency exists be-,
cause the place is too remote from the
center of population and that the sani
tary condition is "rank" owing to the
sewer connected with the Senate and
House buildings being stopped up wit.i
bill! that have been pigeon holed."
Mr. Francis could not be found to
verify the rumor and the Western
Union officials only smiled when asked

Describes tho Place Where Mig hty Amies Clashed in Death
Struggle as "the Kingdom of Desolation" Prussian Sol
dier, Wounded to the Deat h, Pens Farewell Letter
Full of Subtle and Very Beautiful Emotions
By MAURICE EARRES of the French
The other evening, leaving the
trenches 'of the first line, we Tent
about to pre3 the hands of our sol
diers through the shelters flanking tho
hill, where they came every three days
to He. And then, after I had seen a
little teasing; of the Prussians. ! wa
led Into a little wood, COO meters dis

was station'' ' advance, standing be
tween two apple trees. We looked
at him He gazed back at us. And
no one on either side moved.
Twilight was descending. Between
that man and us lay the bodies of dead
men which could not be gathered up.
I shall never forget the sinister spot,
and the harmony between living br
ings and lands-cape. Is it possible that
our rich plains have come to such
desolation, that the best, morally and
physically, of France, are hidden In
these kennels of beasts, and that ideas
of hate and of death alone occupy the
minds of the millions of indilduals
who face each other along this im
mense line of battle? Of what drcara3
that Prussian before me, as he
watches me through the mist of eve

and I, in the same way, think of de
stroying him. These are circum

spirit loses its Identity In all the
others, In which no soul Is kept apart

Facts and Mysteries.
In vain did my companion no one
better experienced In the affairs of

the facts there raises Itself a barrier
of mystery And while we" went back
through the stretch of country to

From time to time we came upon
people of our side, cooking In the llt-
tie hollows of the plain. They were
laughing, chatting- amomj themselves.
Then we went on again Into the si

That ending of our visit to thc ad
vance posts resembled a return of
late hunters in autumn, but mingled
with It was an extraordinary disquiet
of heart. Never have I known such
a vital feeling of brotherhood as on
that Journey; never a'more profound
sense of the mystery In which our ex

During five days we had seen and
