The first evidence of the present
administration's "return to law" is
the approval by the district forester
of the elimination of 125,000 acres
of grazing land from the Jemez na
tional forest in New Mexico.
Prosperity seems to have struck
Flagstaff with the purpose of mak
ing it her permanent home. While
the old lady is somewhat finical but
nevertheless business men generally
are willing to go to extremes to
make her smile and remain.
A telephone exchange in Chicago
was recently wrecked by dynamite.
One preson was fatally injured and
property to the amount of $100,000
damaged. Possibly the deed was
committed by a person who had
found the line busy too often and
thus crossly intimated he was dis
satisfied. Operators can go too far
that way sometimes.
James B. Girand, the new terri
torial engineer, is taking a whole
some interest in the proposed terri
torial highway across the country
from Douglo3 to the Grand Canyon.
With each county taking an inter
est in the work, the grand highway
from north to south will soon be a
.reality. In Gila county the super
visors are contemplating a large
bond issue to contract the road
through that country. Cochise and
other southern counties are inter
ested in the movement.
There appears to be a pretty gen
eral idea that there was a new
game law passed at the last session
of the legislature requiring a
license to hunt, both by residents
and non-residents. There were
laws of that kind proposed but ihey
failed of passage and do not appear
in the session laws. There was
mesely a change of date in the
hunting of quail and a number of
other birds named among those that
should not be killed between Feb
ruary 1st and October 15th.
It is up to President Taf t to de
cide "What is Whiskey?" Whis
key is called a great many names
by those who use it as well as by
the prohibs, but it could be des
cribed as. that peculiar essence in
solution taken from food elements
made by still, but not still when
made; which when appilcd to the
system seeks, out the hidden Joys
and grievances of the individual
and foments them into greatly
aggravated shapes, reduced only by
the police or Morpheus, or both.
President Taft may have this if he
deeds an answer right away.
The man who stops his little
"ad" is but a blooming fool, be
dad I because his advertisements
tell the public what he has to sell,
and if his "ad" is not on deck, the
pcope pass him up by heck! And
none of them will hesitate to trade
with merchants up-to-date. To
stop your "ad" we would remark,
is just like winking in the dark
you may know what you mean, but
gee, nobody else can ever see. So
do not for a moment think that
when you cut out printers ink
you're saving money on the side;
'tis merely business suicide! Ex.
The special election called by
the city council for the nurpose of
voting on the adoption of a new
charter for the Town of Flagstaff,
July 27, 1909, at the Court house,
should interest every business man.
Flagstaff has outgrown the old
charter and the new one would be
of great advantage and much less
expensive in the administration of
affairs. The old "charter was
faulty, .ambiguous and an uncertain
quantity, causing many of the past
troubles in city government. It is
an easy matter to go over the new
law nnd satisfy yourself that there
is nothing in it to be feared by
good citizens and many things to he
