Maes Sweeping Denial.
Not only did Roosevelt deny this

the committee a sweeping denial
that he ever solicited funds from any
one while president: that any money
had been received by '.he lini cam

or Implied promise of favors from
the administration; that excessive
funds had been used In his 1901 or
100S campaign or that money ever

County Supervisors Agree to
Repay Those Who Im

Funds Are on Hand
"The weather" was the unusual fac
tor that entered into the plans of
the Stone Rollers yesterday. Those
who are getting up the road repair
ing party, however, are going ahead
on tho assumption that tomorrow will
be fair and warmer.
For a time yesterday prospects for
a stone-rolling appeared gloomy, like
the weather, but It was decided that
two such days cannot occur consecu
tively in Blstee, and plans for the
affair are going ahead just as if King
Winter had not sent the coolly po
lite note of yesterday's weather.
Big Crowd to Work
There will be at least fifteen auto
mobiles, each carrying four two
handed men and a full supply of
picks, shovels, Bpades and other road
working tools, besides edibles and
beterages for the crowds.
Beginning at Bisbee, the road from
here to Hereford will be divided into
sections, and an automobile assigned
to each section. 11 of those who
can go or can send their cars, and all
who wish to participate In the trip,
are requested to communicate with
J. R. Henderson or Dr. N. C. Bledsoe
today. The start will be made from
the post office plaza Sunday morning
at an hour to te named, which piota
bly will be 8 o'clock.
Organizations Back Project
Three organizations, in addition to
enthusiastic Individuals, are back ol
the stone-rolling, and bv this token
it should be a - succesu. Pride:u

condition, the county has no money
to spend on repairing them, and if t j
