PHOENIX, ARIZONA TO BID FOR THE CONGRESS i Big Delegation Coming to Lethbridge to Compete for the 1913 Meeting Phoenix, Ariz., wants the Dry-Farm-' Ing Congress session lor 1913. Not only ,do-thoy want it, but they are coining lip next month utter it, and they a-r-a going to bring pledges OL support to the extent of to show that they want it. Lnat year" "Phoenix wanted the big agricultural congress, but when they found, that Lethbridge had the lists and 'had brought down a boosters' epecial and a kiltie band to aid In capturing tlie event, they backed out, tout now that the Congress Is sure 'to to the States for a year or BO, the Arizona city has revived its hopes; and 'will "bring a'strong aggre- gation to Lethbridge to support their claims. Clovernur Hunt is behind the move- ment. A few days ago he called a meeting for the purpose oE consider- ing the matter and prominent men from every part of the Stale were .pre- sent. The following, from the Phoe- nix Republican, tells of the plans of the Arizona boosters to get the Con- gress to their Stiito for iiex-t year: stage the 19i3 congress dry-darmers if the movement start- ed at the meeting yesterday has any effect. "Called together.-by Governor Hunt a number of gentlemen from about the State met at the Board of Trade yes- terday iifternoon to devise ways ami iheans of luring the arid agricultur- ists to Arizona when next that body convenes. The purpose in making the fight for'the Congress Is to bring 'Arizona's opportunities for the dry- fanner to the notice of the men who indulge in that sort of soil tilling. !Ancl, .besides, there is the resultant good of the visit of over dele- gates, their ideas, possible invest- ments, and the advertising they will give the new state by their presence. Arizona will be glv-en.thc chance to demonstrate the great latent lands, waste now, but "only desert because there is no way to get men to settle th-sm. "In forty othsr yays, more or less mercenary, Salt River valley will benefit by. the invasion of a congress of the standing the Dry- Farmers enjoy: 'Actually, a great num >bev of visitors will come and leave ilucre." Also they will go and leave wc'rdK. And that is what is designed to he'the best plum bt all, the adver- tising of Arizona in parts wh-are men eagerly catch at news of a land of out- door promise, fruits of the farm, and o chance to live on ground that makes the real living of the race. "The meeting was held under the chairmanship of Governor Hunt. Pre- sent were men of affairs, well-to-do farmers and publicity men of all the State. Malcolm Frascr, s-ecretary of the Prescott chamber of commerce, was one of the most active .members of the meeting. Phoenix's representa- B. MarKs and Al Moore; those of MarScopa county, Vernon Clarlc and Harry Welch, and others, made up an enthusiastic set of busi- ness getters. afternoon's discussion was crystallized in the motion of W. II. .Clark, .of Hplbrook, to, make a bid for the meeting of the International Dry- Farming Congress for Phoenix in 1913. When it was decided the effort would be put forth to bring the convention here, the meeters proceeded -to dig out methods. Jn this connection, the matter of an exhibit from Maricopa ccunty and Arizona at "large" to this congress was brought up. The State will be represented by a car of material, to be gathered and sent to Alberta, Canada; under the" steering hand of Secretary Fraecr. It was found -necessary to lift the sum of 700 to cover expenses of the It was pletlKed in s. fes7 aihiutes, and Mr. Fraser was unanimously chosen as su peri n ten dent. "Fifty citizens, some named from am ong those present, and others to be picked 'by the Governor and the Board of Trade, will form a committee on ways and means." Will Have to Fight Phoenix will not- get the Congress without a hard figlit. Boise, Idaho, wants it. So does Salt 'Lake pity; in- cidentally the progressive people of Saskatchewan think it would be quite the -prop-er thing if it were- staged in Reglna in 1913. They are all coming, and they are all going'to make a strong 'bid for It. It may be, too, that this session will >be unique in that Buda-Pest, Hungary, will ask that it be transferred across 'the pond for one y-aar, making the first time in the history of the that a Euro- pean nation has Actively entered the lists. At the session last fall, the Aus- trian representatives said they wanted it for Buda Pest in 1913, and though little is heard from them, they will likely make their presence known when iit ccm-es to taking a vote on the question. At any rate there is a de- mand for the next session, and some strong delegations of boosters will in- vade Lethb-ridge during Congress NEW RULES FOR TUG LINERS tfi ONE OF THE REFORMS FOU-OW- ING UPON WRECK OF THE TITANIC London, Sept. an outcome ol the Titanic .Inquiry, the Hoard ol Trade has IKSIHM! revised rules for in- creasing tlio safety of lives at sea.

Sidney Buxton, of the Hoard of Trade, in issuing the new rules makes tire statemtKi that it may be neces- sary to obtain further legislative power in ordcr'to make adequate boat drill compulsory and secure crows to man the boats prope_rly. The rule is abrogated which permit- ted ships with bulkheads to carry a lesser, number of. boats. Bruce dmay'i Comment London, Sept. feel said Managing Director J.

The apparatus, which is the in- ventipn of two brothers named Hod- kinson, consists of a drum to receive tho sound waves and an indicator. The drum, which measures nine feet by five feet, is placed aloft where it cannot be affected by sounds on deck, and is connected electrically with an indicator, which is placed in such a position that it can readily be seen the ship's officer on duty. The receiver consists of a number of units each of which receives sound waves from a particular direction. Though sensitive to sound waves they are not affected by ordinary mechanical vi- brations. By means of the electrical device a sound wave from a particular direc- tion causes an electric lamp in a particular position in the indicator to be lighted. The position of the light- ed lamp shows the position which the ship whose siren is sounding, occu- pies with regard to the ship which carries the apparatus. The lamp re- mahis alight until it is seen by tlie officer on duty, who can then switch it off. if the other vessel is moving differ- ent lamps are lighted, in succession, showing the vessel's course. The apparatus indicates the direc- tion in which the vessel blowing her foghorn is travelling, whether she is going ahoad, astern or on cither side. If there are several ships hi the viciu- j Hy, the recording lights from any of them can be shut off until the posl- tion of the others have been observed. Edmonton, Alta., Sept. 5.

He made a large fur-catch last season, disposing of the pelts in this city at good prices. Eggers paddled a dugout canoe from Fort George to Tete Juan Cache, 300 miles without mishap.. There are many rapids in the Fraser river, making tlie journey more or less haz- ardous, but many settlers, he "says, are going down the swift stream in small boats and scoivs, taking house- hold goods ami farm implements. Six hundred men and women have gone into the district in the last 90 days The overland road _ from the river country to Fort George is a long and ilillicult one. It is used chiefly by trappers, tourists and pros- pectors in search of big game, scon- cry and minerals. Green Tomatoes For r.ckling; call up Phone 1003 FRACHE BROS.

Ellis, in which the governor said two or three Republi- can candidates had told him they would withdraw from .that ticket should the Republican .state central committee demand they adhere to the supporting of the entire Republican state ticket.
