Miami Daily Arizona Silver Belt (Newspaper) - August 13, 1915, Miami, Arizona THE BELT VOL. Mil. NO. 265. MIAMI, ARIZONA, FRIDAY, AFOUST 12, 1915 PRICE FIVE CENTS. CARRIES EVERY' PRECINCT SO FA 11 AS HEARD FROM HAS GONE ON record \s being IN FAVOR OF THE ROAI) IMPROVEMENTS. ACTIVITY MAJORITY AT I.F.AST .UM>—NOT RELIEVED MISSING PREC INCTS WILL CHANGE RESULTS A IMfZEN VOTES. REMARKABLE RECORDS SHOWN BY ROOKS OF RUILD1NO INSPECTOR TUNIS—27 PERMITS IN TWELVE DAYS. NEARLY 9010,000 WORTH OF IMPROVEMENTS SINCE THE FIRST OF THE MONTH—AND MORE TO FOLLOW. While the vote upon the $500,000 bond Issue for good roads for Gila county carried In yesterday's election by a majority of more than 300 votes, nevertheless the vote was an extremely light one. With the exception of a disposition to find fault because the taxpayers did not turn out in larger numbers and vote upon the proposition the good roads boosters are well satisfied with the results. Clerk Frank Gates of the board of supervisory today stated that he had received returns from all of the precincts in the county, except Young, Gisela, and Tonto. The returns from San Carlos and Rice are in the office of the board of supervisors, but they are sealed and cannot be opened until a meeting of the boar l of supervisors, which, under the law, must .take place within twelve days from the date of election. Mr. Gates says that he hopes to get the returns from Young, Gistda and Tonto by this afternoon's stage and that it is possible that an official canvass or the votes may be made by the time the members of the board of supervisors meet Monday next for the purpose of scitting the tax rate. If the returns from the missing precincts do not arrive this afternoon or in time for Monday’s meeting of the board of supervisors a meeting of the board of supervisors will be held at the earliest date possible for the purpose of making the canvass as required by law. Clerk Gates, however, stated today .that he did not believe that the missing precincts would change the results to the extent of a dozen vote3. At any rate, there is no doubt but what the bond issue has carried by a handsome majority, every precinct so fas as known having gone on record in favor of the bond issue. In the precincts from which the returns have been received a total of 7 49 votes was cast, 550 being for and 199 against the bond issue, thus giving a majority of 351 in favor of the issue as far as known. The results in detail follow: Globe—For, 311; against, 169. Miami—For, 64; against 8. Lower Miami—For, 20; against, 7. Payson—For, 59; againts, 3. Roosevelt—For, 6; against, 3.

AND ONE IN THE AFTERNOON RETWEEN THE REGULAR TEAMS OF THE TWO TOWNS— OTHER SPORTING EVENTS. LOCATED AT FOOT OF GOLDEN HILL BETWEEN GLOBE AND MIAMI—PLANS AMUSEMENT PARK. ACCORDING TO AN ANNOUNCE-MEXT MADE ITRLIC RV PROFESSOR ELLIOT—TEACHERS RETURNING. That building activity in Miami is at present greater than at any time in the history of the town is tvi-denced by the number of building permits that are being issued by Huildlng Inspector H. O. Tunis. As announced in the Daily Silver Belt, the report of Mr. Tunis turned in to the common council Wednesday night showed remarkable results. And later records of the building inspector show that twenty-seven permits, calling for an expenditure of nearly $160,000 were issued during the first twelve days of the current month. Of the new buildings for which permits have been granted the high school and hotel are of coures first in importance and cost. But new residences, of which Miami is at present in great need, appear prominently in the list, there having been seventeen permits issued for this class of buildings. With one exception the new residences will be frame structures, ranging in cost from $150 .to $700. One concrete residence is to be erected by D. P. Van-ette at an estimated cost of $1,000. Permits to make extensive alterations and repairs have also been issued to several business men who havt found it necessary to enlarge their buildings in order to handle their increasing business more satisfactorily. Among those who have enlarged or are planning to enlarge their business places are D. Levison, who is building a balcony for ready-to-wear, millinery, etc.; Cepriano Mendez, who has built an addltiou to his bakery, and L. F. McLendon, who has made extensive alterations in his restaurant on Keystone avenue. In connection with the issuance of permits, Building Inspector Tunis states that many make requests for the permits after they have started to build, not being aware that they are required under the city ordinances to secure the permit beforo any work is done whatever. Seweral arrests have been made recently for violations of this ordinance. Excellent progress is reported by the various committees in charge or the Labor Day celebration in spite of the fact the several members of the committees were busy yetserday ia connection with the bond issue election. Among the events of the day which have already been arranged for will be two ball games, one in the morning between the members of the trade councils of Miami and Globe, and a game in the afternoon between the regular teams of .those two towns. The morning game should prove an interesting one as there are said to be a number of fast players, members of the councils, who will appear in the line up. The sports committee has not yet decided whether or not they will attempt to hold any horse races or ring picking contests on Sullivan street. These matters will be dett r-mined at a later date. But a challenge to meet any one in the state in a ring picking contest has be* n issued by J. A. Teeples, the contest to take place here on Labor Day. BECAUSE OF THE NATURE OF HIS PLANS, MR. HAHN RELIEVES HE WILL SECURE COOPERATION OF PEOPLE HERE. GLOBE SCHOOLS OPEN EARLIER. ; RUT HERE OPENING GOES | OVER UNTIL AFTER LABOR DAY HOLIDAY. I j -- W. J. ELLERY IS BACK FROM CAL WORK STARTS ON THE NEW HOTEL Work on the new Hotel Miami began in earnest this morning. About twenty men appeared at 8 o’clock and were pqt to work digging the trenches for the foundation und^r the superintendence of E. B. Echock ley.

LOUIS, Mo., Aug. 13.—Three hundred teamsters, demanding a ten-hour day, and a ten per cent, increase, walked out of the plants of two transfer companies today, and tpread the strike to all the other dray age firms, practically paralyzing street and freight transportation. Fifteen hundred men struck. W. J. Ellery, manager of the Bank of Miami, returned last night after a month spent at San Diego and other coast towns. Mrs. Ellery and child remained at Santa Monica and will return in about a month. Mr. Ellery states that he enjoyed his vacation but was nevertheless glad to get back to Miami for the reason that it has any California town he had visited beaten forty ways when it comes to business. While in Los Angeles he had the treasure of renewing acquaintance with John Koddan, who was formerly a partner of F. E. Gassaway in the Miami Drug company. Koddan is now Los Angeles agent for the Hercules Tire company, and reported that he was doing very well in his new line. Mr. Ellery also met Clias. Gorunson in Los Angeles, at which place he has been spending part of a three months’ visit in California. Goranson “allowed" that he had too much unfinished business on hand to think of returning to Miami for some time yet. The residents of Globe and Miami will soon have an opportunity to enjoy the diversions of a new playground if the plans just inaugurated by F. B. Hahn are successfully carried out. With the intention or building a large amusement park which will cover forty acres of ground, Mr. Hahn yesterday purchased a one hundred and forty acre tract of land lying in the Hat at the foot of Golden Hill, about half way between Miumi and Globe-, from Ed. Arhelger. Forty acres of the tract are to bo reserved for the park and the balance divided into small tracts. Many features are planned for the amusement park, among them a swimming pool, dance hall, tennis court, cafe, etc., and it is possible that in the future a ball ground will be laid out on the grounds. After the preliminary work has been completed a number of wells will be drilled and it is hoped that an abundant flow of water can be easily secured, as heretofore water has been found at a depth of a few feet. Enough wells will be drilled to furnish water supply not only for the park, but also for domestic purposes in the homes and for irrigation. Mr. Hahn is of the opinion that the tract will prove to be a particularly desirable one for homes aft?r the Miami and Globe highway is paved, as he expects that passengers will then be carried from Miami and Globe to the tract for a low fare, possibly not more than five cents, as forty-passenger cars can be operated easily on paved roads. Mr. Hahn states that much intercut has been shown in the project since the announcement of his plans and that he does not anticipate any difficulty in securing the necessary co-operation from people in the district. Professor Elliot, the superintendent of the Miami schools, announced today that the Miami schools would open September 7. The Globe schools optin earlier. But on account of the big labor holiday proposed for Labor Day it has been deemed best to put off the opening of the Miami schools until after the celebration. Already word has been received of the different teachers planning to return after vacations spent in differ- I N< ONI ARMED REPORTS THAT THE ALLIES ARE CANCELLING ORDERS BROKE GRAIN PRICES TODAY.

CHICAGO, III., Aug. 13.—Unconfirmed reports that the allies are cancelling orders for vast quantities of wheat broke* grain prices from one to 3% cents a bushel. James Patten said the cancellation, which is said to amount to two million bushels of September wheat, could mean only one of two things, either ent cities and in different parts of ■ Europe had found a new source of the country. With the exception of supply, which means Russia through Professor Elliot, the first to return is Miss Mlttie Patterson, teacher of the second grade last year. A NEW REVOLT By the Associated Press.

He has a thirty-day option. The price Is approximately a million dollars. He is a former Cincinnatian with large interests there. Plans for the celebration of the Sixteenth of September, the Mexican National Holiday, show that tills celebration will probably be one of the largest, if not the largest, of the Arizona Mexican celebrations. Although the members of the finance committees have already collected about $600, it is estimated by those in charge that it’ will require at least twice that amount to care for the various features. The offerings by business men and citizens have been liberal and spontan ous, but on account of the magnitude of the enterprise more money is needed. Among the features which are being plauind are Mexican parades and processions. A chorus by the Mexican senoritaa of Miami will be one of the most interesting among the numbers on the progrum.
