ARIZONA PINE LUMBER.
The Exhibit ef the Arizona Lumber &.
Timber Company at the fair WW
Show Its Beauty and UtHUy.
The Arizona Lumber & Timber
Company are preparing an exhibit
of finished and rough pine for the
Territorial Fair that would attract
The prevailing idea in the exhibit
is to show that Arizona pine can
be finished in such a manner as to
so closely imitate the more costly
woods, that it takes an expert to
distinguish the difference. With
this idea in view, specimens of
pine have been finished in the va
rious popular wood finish, and the
beautiful markings of the pine
make a handsome showing.
Among the display are a num
ber of boards from twenty-four to
thirty inches in width and in va
rious lengths, in clear pine.
The large variety of mouldings
manufactured by this firm will be
attractively shown by mounting a
short section of finished natural
on blackboards, these to be placed
on an easel.
Sections of pine logs will be
on exhibition. An ordinary saw
log would be sent, but it would be
hard to handle.
A table made in mission style
shows what can be done in manu
The space secured for the exhibit
at the fair is 20x30 feet, and it will
be fully utilized be the exhibit. A
number of pine trees will be used
xnother feature of the exhibit
will be a display of turned articles
embracing everything from a watch
case up to a porch post.
The exhibit will be shipped next
week and will be under the charge
of A. A. Dutton during the fair.
Not So Reliable.
The Nogales Oasis in an arti
cle on joint statehood calls at
tention to the fact that, Colliers'
weekly and Harpers are support
ing that issue and calls attention
to their reliabity and to their in
fluence. These journals may have
some influence but as to their
statementb, they are not as re
liable as they should be, espe
ially so when they wish to make
a point in favor of the joint issue.
These journals without any au
thority placed the name of the
Coconino Sun among the news
papers in the territory favoring
joint statehood and this without
any reason whatever. A state
ment without any foundation what-eve.
Will Paint Hop! Indians.
"An Oakland dispatch says Mrs.
Warren E. Rollins, the charming
wife of the well-known painter of
Indians, leaves in a few days to
join her husband in Arizona, where
he is at present gathering material
for a presentation on canvas of
the celebrated "snake dance."
Mjs. Rollins proposes to make a
study of the life and character of
the Arizona Indians and may
write a book about them. She is
an unusually clever woman.
"Mr. Rollins is now one of the
most prominent painters of In
dians in the United States. For
the last few years he has confined
himself to depicting with his
brush the dusky native Americans
of the great southwest. A few
months ago he exhibited in Oak
land his paintings of scenes
among the Hopi Indians and the
views attracted much attention
about the bay. As such work
takes Mr. Rollins away from his
Oakland home, a great deal of the
time, his wife has decided that
since he could not stay here with
her, she ought to' go to him in
Arizona. -Liuaraong the Indian
is not ordinarily interesting when
the novelty has worn off unless
onii has a purpose in vitw, so
Mrs. Rollins will make a thorough
investigation of their domestic
habits and history."
Mr. Rollins spent some time on
the reservation earlV this year and
on his return exhibited his paint
ing's here and they attracted a
great deal of favorable attention.

the Copper Queen company, Col.

TERRITORIAL FAIR NOTES
Final Arrangements. Hassayamp Che
sen for Name ef Amusement Street.
Miners DrHftal Contest.
The final arrangements are be
ing made for the Territorial fair
and the prospects are for the big
gest meeting of the kind ever held
in the territory. The tracks are
finished and are pronounced by
horsemen to be as fast as any
track can be. The grandstand has
been completed and is a substan
tial structure that will hold 3,000
people. The training stables are
now filled with horses, being put
in condition for the races, and it
has been found necessary to build
sfxty additional stalls for the ac
commodation of the exhibition and
racing horses yet to come. The
harness racing will undoubtedly
be the best ever held in this sec
tion. The free-for-all pace, known
as the "Bisbee Stake," has two of
the fastest horses in the country
entered, Hazel Patch 2-02, and
Zolock, 2:05. In the 2:17 pace,
the "Clifton-Morenci Stake," a
number of Col. Green's horses are
entered and include the three-year-old
"Billings, which is probably the
most valuable horse Tn the terri
tory. The 2:35 tfbt, which has
been guaranteed by the citizensjof
Tombstone, and is known as the
"Tombstone Stake," includes a lot
of good horses and promises to be
one of the hottest.
The main exhibit building is
near completion, and while it is a
pretty good sized building, it has
been divided between the Womans,
Agricultural and Educational de
partments. In order to accommo
date the merchants and manufac
turers, it has been found necessary
to build a frame annex to the main
building, and this will be forty
feet wide and 144 feet long.

the championship of Arizona, will
take place on Thursday, December
7, and will be for $1,000 in cash

single. Only miners who have
