Some Live Happenings in the Political World
POLITICAL ANNOUNCEMENTS I
MRS. FROHMILLER IS AN .
Mrs. Ana Frohmiller, nominated by
the Democratic party to succeed her
self as county treasurer, and who had
no opposition in the primaries, ha3
given that office a most capable ad
ministration. Mrs. Frohmiller had a fine commer
cial education and several years pre
liminary experience as book-keeper,
auditor and cashier, both in Phoenix
and Flagstaff, previous to her ap
pointment in February, 1920, to the
position of assistant county treasur
er under Treasurer M. A. Murphy, to
succeed Mrs. Julia Kleisler, resigned.
When Henry Aphold was elected coun
ty treasurer and took office the first
of 1921, Mrs. Frohmiller stayed on as
deputy, and on June 5, this year, she
was appointed treasurer following Mr.
Aphold s resignation.
The office is run in a thorough,
systematic, up-to-the-minute way.
The state examiners, hero a few
weeks ago gave Mrs. Frohmlller's con
duct of the office a splendid report
They found nothing to criticize, much
The young woman is not a politi
cian. She admits it herself. She is a
thorough business woman, but if she
had to get out and tell the voters how
good sho is, she would not. But the
many taxpayers who have called at
her office, and the other officials who
have been associated with her are not
sparing in the praise she is too mod
est to give herself. Aside from all
party feelings and prejudice, she is an
efficient treasurer, conscjentious and
thorough, and a charming, most like
able young woman whose personality
makes warm friends for her wherever
she becomes acquainted.
HOWARD MARINE FINE
CHOICE FOR RECORDER
The republicans of the county made
no mistake in giving such a fine vote
to Howard Marine in the republican
primaries. His vote would have been
even larger but for the fact that there
are many among the later comers
here who are not acquainted with him.
Among the old-timers, including those
who have been here a few years, How
ard stands ace high:
He is in no sense a politician.
Though resident hero for many years,
he never ran for political office be
fore. He would not have entered the
race this time but for the insistence
of his friends, several of whom he
flatly refused when they requested
him to run. They kept at him, how
over, in constantly increasing num
bers until he consented.
Ho is quiet, unassuming, honest
During the many years he has lived
here he has met every obligation, kept
every promise. His word is as good
as a bond, and when he promises, as
he does, to give the office of county
recorder tho best, most efficient and
most economical administration of
which ho is capable, those who know
him know that that is what he will do.
For some time lately Mr. Marine
has been a deputy under Sheriff Bil
ly Campbell and has had charge of
the office work. He has put the rec
ords of that office on a systemic ba
sis, elaborated and perfected the rec
ords and the filing system until they
are complete in every detail and a
model of convenience. Ho has not
used his job as office man there as a
sinecure, but has done a great deal of

work left undone under previous
advinistrations. The writer knows
exactly what lie is talking about
when he makes this statement And
it is an additional guarantee that if
Howard Marine is elected county re
corder he will not neglect his work.
That is an important office, one of
me narciest in the county to fill be
cause of the immense amount of tire
some copying and other detail to be
taken care of. Mr. Marine's election
will insure a continuance of the ef
ficient work that has been done by
the present incumbent, Miss Irene
Bart, and will be a guarantee against
slip-shod methods, carelessness and
neglect, things that would in a short
time, if indulged in, mean great in
convenience and expense to the tax
payers of the county.
Howard has a fine family. His wife
is a sister of Mrs. Dr. Cornfsh of
Albuquerque, and Hon. E. S. Clark
of Phoenix. One' of his sons is a mem
ber of Battery "D" of this city. Mr.
Marine himself was one of Roose
sevelt's Rough Riders during the
Spanish-American war and fought in
the battle of San Juan hill.
He will call on as many of the vo
ters as possible between now and elec
tion day. Ho probably wont have
much to say for himself. Because he
isn't given to boasting or self-praise.
But he's all there. If you know him,
you know it. If you don't know him
now, but become acquainted with him
before election, you'll decide that he's
a pretty solid sort of chap, one who
can be depended on.

J.UDGE GILULAND IS
FOR STATE SENATE
Judge S. B. Gilliland is well pleased
with the vote he received in the re
publican primaries on September 12,
though he had no opposition in his
party for the nomination for state
Judge Gilliland has had many years
of experience in legislative workpre
vious to becoming a resident of Flag
staff some thirty years ago. Though
his years may count up since he en
listed as a soldier in tne great Civil
war, he has the same vigorous ideas
of preserving the best there is for
the union he had when he shouldered
a gun for Uncle Sam back in the 60's.
He laid down his gun when Lee sur
rendered. Judge Gilliland's life has not been
an idle one, but filled with stirring
events which have kept him young
and in the fore front with all the
changing conditions of the days as
As a "pinch hitter" in the last extra
session of tho legislature, he filled
the vacancy caused by the resignation
of Judge Fred W. Perkins, and made
good for his constituency. He was
never found wanting where the inter
ests of Coconino county or northern
Arizona were concerned, and made an
enviable reputation as a legislator.
He was popular with both branches of
the legislature and as a crowning
event in his long life of usefulness,
his friends insist that he be elected
state senator for the next two years.
He has no ax to grind and is earnest
in his desire merely to represent the
best interests of the whole people of
Coconino county and his adopted state
of Arizona. "1 would be pleased to
servo my people once more, if they
see fit to grant me that honor. I real

BEESON HAS MADE GOOD
AS COUNTY ASSESSOR
This county made no mistake two
years asro in electincr Billy Beeson
county assessor. He will be re-elected
this fall, probably without opposi
tion, but, anyway, he will be re-elected.
Because the voters throughout the
county, irrespective of party, know
that in Beeson they have a conscien
tious officer, of great ability, fair and
square as a man is ever made.
liUly has nothing to do witn fixing
tiuc rates. His work is to value prop
erties and assess the taxes in accord
ance with the rates. He goes about
his work with the sole idea of giving
everyone concerned, the taxpayers as
individuals and the county and state
as a whole, a fair deal. When a man
works along lines like that he is bound
to make good. He has made so good
that his candidacy is welcome to hun
dreds of democrats as well as to the
members of his own party.
Mr. isecson has administered the
office as economically as possible.
With a lot of extra work thrown on
him through being compelled by the
new state automobile laws to handle
the issuance of automobile licenses, he
has not increased office expense for
the term. This is because he does
not shun work himself, but does as
much as he expects his capable as
sistant, John H. Morrison, to do.
His unfailins? courtesy, his Know
ledge of real estate, mercantile and
personal property, livestock and other
values particularly fit him for his job.
He is a good man to Keep in an im
portant office. The taxpayers get
value received from his work. They
also know that they are getting fair,
impartial treatment, an even breaK
with every other taxpayer.

SHERIFF CAMPBELL'S RECORD
CALLS FOR HIS RE-ELECTION
Wm. A. Campbell, republican can
didate for re-election as sheriff, has
been a sheriff in fact as well as in
name. No man ever elected to pol
itical office has tried any harder or
more conscientiously to do his full
duty than Bill Campbell.
He got the office two years ago and
with it the unsolved Schwarz murder
mystery. Within a few months tho
murderer was arrested and is now
serving what might as well bo a life
sentence. And ever since he took of
fice, first one case and then another
has bobbed up, until tho number of
men arrested and sentenced during
Campbell's twenty months in office is
more than double the number sen
tenced during the full term of any of
That is fact. It isn't the result of
hunting trouble, either. Conditions
have changed now from what they
were a few years ago. Almost all of
our law-breakers probably ninety per
cent of those Campbell has had sent
over the road are transients, people
who have been here less than three
months. Lawlessness following the
war, the increase of auto thefts and
crimes by auto bandits, these with the
growing population have piled up
work for the sheriff's office.
Though away back Arizona sheriffs,
under the fee system, pulled down sev
eral times as much money during their
term of office as Campbell does un
der tho straight salary system now
in vogue, Campbell has had to work
harder than they ever had to. And
he hasn't loafed on the job, nor spar
ed himself. He has been sheriff in
fact He has conducted his office
honestly, fearlessly, efficiently and as
economically as possible considering
the vast amount of work he has had
to do. He frequently has had to fol
low up three to half a dozen cases at
one and the same time cases that
had to be attended to then and not
put off until too late, as a less con
scientious officer might have done.
If the people of Coconino county ap
preciate good work in their public
servants if they want them to do
the work for which they are elected
consistency demands the re-electiijn of
Bill Campbell. He has made good.
Firing him by failing to re-elect him
would be unjust
GENE PHELAN COLLECTS
VOTES FOR RECORDER
Eugene Phelan, known to his friends
as "Gene," democratic nominee for
the office of county recorder, is work
ing hard at the job of gathering votes
for deposit in the ballot boxes
throughout the county on the seventh
of November, when the finals in the
biennial candidates' derby are to be
run off, and judging by the handsome
vote Gene got in the primaries, he has
a good cargo of votes already lined
The Sun doesn't endorse Gene's can
didacy, because there is a good repub
lican ..MTididate. But it mut bo con
fessed that The Sun knows no vilid
reason vhy he would not nnke a gold
recorder. He nays he would, his
friendi- say he would, and his good
reputation here where he has always
lived, plus his ability, vouches for it.
Gene has never before been a candi
date for office. However, at the un
dertaking business, which he followed
for a time, he performed the last sad
offices for a lot of people. We hasten
to assure our readers that he was in
no way responsible for their deaths.
Yes, Gene is a democrat That is
the only dinged thine in the world
any of us know against him. That is
a lot, it is true, but there are some
people who do not consider it a dis
qualification. We can say without
hesitation or regret that if Gene
should be elected he will administer
the office properly, give it the best
there is in rim, and when his tenure
of office is ended, will have no apol
ogies to make to anyone. Gene is a
darned good feller, the like of whom
we can stand a lot more of.
JOHN PARSONS READY
TO BE CONSTABLE AGAIN
Judging from the handsome vote
John Parsons got in every voting
place in the Flagstaff precinct in the
recent democratic primary, he will re
ceive the whole-hearted support of his
party at the polls in November.
John has made eood as constable.
Not that anyone thought he wouldn't
They showed what they thought when
they re-elected him by a handsome
majority two years ago.
This important office, tying in as it
does between the sheriffs office,
which has the whole county to take
care of, and the city marshal, whose
activities are confined to the limits of
the city, gives its holder a Dig ter
ritory to take care of. Most of his
work is out of town, much of it in
remote, unsettled parts of the eastern
half of the county. He has a terri
tory to cover that is about as big as
the whole state of Massachusetts.
This calls for a man who knows the
country. Parsons does. His wide ex
perience on the range and his subse
quent peace work, either aione or in
coniunction with the sheriff's office,
has made him familiar with practical
ly every corner of the field he super
vises. This in itself is a valuable as
set. Hooked up with John's well-
known honesty, his fairness, his im
partiality and his devotion to law and
order, it gives him in good measure
every qualification for the place and
makes him a formidable candidate for
anyone to go against.

ty has been highly satisfactory to the
parents and patrons of the schools.
She has devoted her time, unceasingly
and untiringly, to the work of her
office, at the same time keeping in
close contact with actual conditions
in the schools by frequent visits.
The position is not an easv one to
fill. First there is the responsibility
towards the pupils, and it is a grave
one worthy of the best care and at
tention that can be given it Then
there are the occasional little differ
ences that come up between parents
and teachers, whose views as to how
the child should be taught or whether
he is altogether angelic do not always
coincide. Dissatisfaction with the
teacher, whether justified or not, fre
quently engenders like dissatisfaction
with those who employed and super
vise the work of the teacher. Often
the superintendent is criticized for
something that happened about which
she never heard, something that is, in
fact, entirely within the province of
the teacher to handle.
Miss Lockett has been careful in
the choice of teachers. She requires
that they be qualified. Having had
extensive teaching experience herself,
she is better Qualified to select them.
Then she backs her judgment by giv
