The Labor Day celebration was the principal topic for discussion at the meeting of the Miami and Globe labor councils organizations held at Miners’ Union hall last night. Tho reports made by the various committees were most satisfactory and the prospect for the greatest celebration in the history of the district pronounced most auspicious. The finance committee reported that their canvass, which is nearly completed, has been most successful, the subscriptions thus far amounting to over $1,200. It is expected that the remaining territory to be canvassed will yield enough to furnish the cash needed for the celebration. The largest donations were received from the Miami Copper company and the Inspiration Consolidated Copper company, each of which subscribed $250. The Old Dominion Copper company was next on the list with $150 cash. Many of the business men of Miami and Globe have also made liberal subscriptions. The offer of a prize of $25 for the test decorated vehicle in the parade and $25 for the most handsomely decorated business house has aroused great interest throughout the town, and it is expected that many novel and beautiful exhibitions of the decorator’s art will be displayed in the competition. The children’s events will be in charge of Rev. H. M. Hartmann, assisted by Rev. W. M.. Riddle of Globe. Mr. Riddle will look after the little ones under eight years of age, while Mr. Hartmann will have charge of the older ones.

Ice cream and lemonade will be served free to the youngsters in some building or play ground to be decided upon later. N1ETCALF BANK Hi This afternoon Sheriff Frank Haynes received at Globe a telephone message from the Greenlee county authorities to the effect that the bank at Metcalf ltad been robbed about 10:30 a. m. today. The message did not state how much money the bank lost, but according to the deports transmitted over the wire it was a “lone highwayman” who succeeded in making away with the cash. According to last accounts he was headed in the direction of Eagle Creek, to the north of Metcalf, and posses were in pursuit. The bank robber was about 40 years of age, about 5 feet 7 inches in height, weighing 175 pounds, and he rode a bay horse.

The expected decrease in freight traffic In- the International smelter and the discontinuance of shipments of material for Its construction, has, according to Mr. Hallmark, been offset by the increased shipments of material and supplies for repairs and operation, while the outgoing traffic has been materially Increased by the shipments of copper bullion from the smelter. Business conditions in Tucson were showing a healthy improve ment, stated Mr. Hallmark, particularly In mining. Among the most active in mining work were the American Smelting and Refining company, which is opearting in the Twin Butte district south of Tucson. A great deal of development work was also being done In that district by leasers, he said. OF SMOOTHEST RUNNING PLANTS IN EXISTENCE I0DAV BOSTON, Mass., Aug. 25.—Davison & Company say: By January 1, 1916, it is expected that the Inspiration Consolidated Copper company will have its new mill in full operation and treating 15,000 tons of ore dally. Four sections of the 18 have been placed In commission and by November 1 one-half the entire plant should he running, having the remaining nine sections to be put in working order during the month of December or soon thereafter. With the equipment now in commission Inspiration is treating about 1,200 tons of ore daily, which, however, does not represent the capacity of the operating units. Production for the current month may amount to about 1,500,000 pounds of copper. Considerable delay has attended the starting up of the mill because of the management’s desire first to determine the best method of flotation to he installed. Three or four processes have beeu given a trial and it is understood a combination of several will be used. The company has arranged for the Mineral Separation process, upon which It will pay royalty on a tonnage basis. Inspiration is said to have installed one of the smoothest running plants in existence, one which enables easy carriage of ore from mine, through mill and to smelter at minimum cost. t0 ” C .i 4 :l 8e,f ln the P ossesH< on of business men of the type making such build maintenance work of Mr. Clark. The drainage system differs largely from that ordinarily used on highways of that class. Instead of culverts being built for all drainage pur-; the freight aml |K>ses concrete pavement has been i laid in three places in the highway, each stretch of pavement being 50 feet long. This pavement slopes gradually from either end to the center, at which point it is from 2 to 3 feet below the surface proper of the road bed. The surplus water is carried across the highway in these depressions and does not overflow at any other point in the road. This method of draining was in the nature of an experiment on this class of highway and has proved to be entirely satisfactory and is also much less costly in construction. A novel feature of the drainage system consists of concrete boxes into which the water flows and which prevents the water from cutting under and washing out the pavements. In discussing the road work soon to begin in Gila county, Mr. Cobb stated that lie believed that the highway between Miami and Globe should be contsructed under what is known as the “Blthulltic” specifications; that is, with a macadam base and an asphalt surface. This method of construction lias been followed with signal snuccess ln Phoenix and El Paso and in a great many other sections throughout the country. The great advantage this class of road lias over tiie concrete is in the fact that it can be easily repaired with the minimum inconvenience to traffic, while the concrete road can only be repaired by rebuilding the broken seotion entirely, which re-qu’res from two to three weeks’ time and the stoppage of traffic. After returning from the Globe-San Carlos highway, Mr. Cobb stated that in his opiTlion this stretch of road was one of the prettiest pieces of highway construction in the etat->. One of the novel features of this road is the establishment of a road patrol to take care of the maintenance. There are only three places at present in the state where the road patrols are in use, at this place and in Maricopa county. And the ne»v method of having a man on the road allof the time to take care of the repair work lias proven a great success. In this way the road is always ln repair and does not depend on work being done after the road has become very badly out of repair. Not only does the traveling public have the benefit of a road in continual good shape, but the yearly cost of maintenance is less by this method. Anyone who has had occasion to use this road within the last few months will readily see the advantages of having a competent patrol on the road. Reports received concerning W. B. Martin, secretary of the Miami Miners’ union, who lias been spending the past two or three weeks in Ray in connection with the work of organizing the miners employed by the Ray Consolidated Copper company, indicate that Mr. Martin has made good In many ways In the difficult task which confronted him at that big copper camp. One of the conditions growing out of the recent strike at Ray was found in the fact that the men employed there, largely Mexicans, were to he allowed to Join any of the unions ln the adjoining towns. Miami being the nearest town and the Concentrator City being the first to respond with aid at the time of the strike most of the men uniting with the unions located in the different towns elected to join A PANIC IN CONSTANTINOPLE WHEN II PERSONS ARK KILLED DURING BOMBARDMENT I1Y RUSSIAN AERIAL SQUADRON.

BERLIN, Aug. 25.—The Russian advanced positions southwest of the fortress of Hrest-Litovsk has been penetrated by the Germans, according to an official report. NO WEAKENING OF TURKEY By the Associated Press. BERLIN, Aug. 25.—Socialist papers, reporting peace conferences of socialist members of the Reichstag, summarize their peace aims as follows: “Germany’s opponents must not be permitted to acquire any German territory. Tariff walls must bo removed. Austria and Turkey must not be weakened. The internationalization of points of vantage must he necessary for the freedom of the seas. The establishment of an international court of arbitration.” 1RKFFIC CASES IN LOCAL COURT Two violators of the traffic ordinances who have persisted in their wrong doing until they have reached the “second offense” class, were brought before Justice McEachren yesterday afternoon. Jack Bowman and John ('oretta, both of Globe and drivers of rent cars, were the offenders. (’orretta’s offense was for fast and reckless driving, and for having so indulged his desire for unlimited action the court assessed him $10, which was paid. Bowman’s offense for improper parking was not considered by His Honor to be so heinous as to merit a tco-dollar fine, so that amount was cut in two. But this leniency on the part of the court was not appreciated by Bowman, who expressed his disapproval of the entire proceedings in language both vigorous and picturesque. Whether lie spoke five dollars’ worth or not is not known, that is the amount the outburst cost him, making the total ten dollars, which was paid. TAFT ATTACKS BILLY SUNDAY By the Associated Press. SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., Aug. 25. —Former President Taft, presiding at the National Unitarian conference, in an address criticised the methods of a widely known evangelist whom he did not name. He said the methods and results were due to “an ephemeral manifestation of religious excitement.” He depreciated any movement to oppose this man’s attacks on the Unitarian church because in a “mere epithetical assault we would have restraints that would put us at a great disadvantage.” He derlared that “coarseness of speech, vulgarity of illustration and shocking irreverence could not be justified.” « NO NEWS ON ARABIC By tho Associated Press.

I GYPSY QUEEN DIDN’l SABE OFFICER AND MARKED DOLLAR Mary Williams, the fortune teller money included, from his pockets. A and so-called gypsy queen, was arrested at Globe last night on a charge of stealing money. She has apartments near the North Broad street bridge at Globe and complaints have been made repeatedly by her clients that they have been victimized of small sums of money. However, the persons making complaints have refused to face the notoriety incident to the preferring of charges In the court. Finally a police officer dressed in plain clothes visited the quarters of the gypsy queen. He was taken to a back room and ordered to remove all articles, handkerchief was then waved in front of Ills face and he was invited to wish for anything that his heart desired. When the seance had ended and the officer had gathered up his cash he found one dollar missing. The woman was taken to the county Jail and when searched the dollar which was marked by the officer before visiting the place, was found. But the thing which is puzzling the patrons of the gypsy queen Is why so clever a fortune teller could not detect in advance of the coming of troubles the presence of the officer and the fact that the one dollar was marked for her undoing.
