The |commission met and fixed the bond qt $5000. There was no delay, however, for ball, because when Senator Clapp heard of the arrest and demand for bail he guaranteed her appearance and she jvas released. When taken before the United States Commissioner, Mrs. Gray pleaded not guilty. She stoutly maintained the documents were where they could be found — that they were in her possession legally, having been given to her by R. G. Valentine, who recently resigned his job as commissioner. Mrs. Gray declared that she did not need any money; that she did not want any ball and that she was perfectly willing to go to jail until there could be a full hearing next Tuesday. Mrs. Gray made the statement that the documents were perfectly safe and that they were at the Department of Justice.

While here the party «vas joined by Deputy Sheriff Megson of Pinal county, who will accompany them on the rest of the search.

Debs, the Socialist party candidate for president, believes he will poll at least 1,000,000 votes in the coming election . This belief is shared by his campaign managers and is based upon reports recently received from the party workers in every sectian of the country. The total Socialist vote in the national election in 1904 was 402,283 and four years ago the vote reached 4 20,793. In both these elections the party had the same presidential candidate as this year. With the same standard-bearer it could scarcely be expected that the party vote would more than double, unless public sentiment has undergone a surprising change within four years.
