Out for Governor
(From Tuesday's Examiner)
Prescott, Ariz., Sept. 29, 19li.
Yuma Daily Examiner, Yuma.
"I ;have' consented to run for the,
office of governor of Arizona, and of
course I hope for success, but if we
do not succeed, let us at least conducr
a manly campaign. It is not manly to
traduce an opponent, nor is it proper
to speak of his failure. I demand that
in this campaign there be no mud-
slinging. I do not desire success at
the expense of another's misfortune.
If I cannot advance on my own merits
I do not want to advance. It is un
palatable to me to contemplate ad
vancing over the forms of men who
have been unfortunate.
"If we are to have a Republican
governor, let that governor be on the
platform of his party and his personal
record. I have been in Arizona for
more than 40 years, and I have wit
nessed her wonderful growth and 1
live in the hope that regardless of the
uncertainty now facing us, we will
soon take our stand among the fore
most states of the union.
"The great possibilities we have
here can be worked out with great
credit to Arizona, if we go about it
understandingly and intelligently.
If I am elected to the office of gov
ernor, I will except every proposal
that is for the good of the new state,
no matter from what source, nor its
political creed. If it will bring benefit
to Arizona I will be glad to accept it
"I am . wedded to no theories and I
have no preconceived notions that will
in any way interfere with my doing
everything within ' the power of the
governor for the upbuilding and devel
opment of Arizona.
"Should I reach the office of gover
nor, in selecting my advisors, I intend
to eliminate personal enmity and po
litical bias. We are facing the most
critiical moment of our career and I
shall endeavor to obtain the advice
and aid of the best man I can find.
I shall select them with a view of
Wilder for Sheriff
;From Monday's Daily Examiner)
In- yesterday's issue of this paper
appeared the announcement of U. G.
Wilder for the office o.f sheriff of Yu
ma county, subject to the action of
the Republican voters of Yuma coun
ty, and that he will be nominated
and elected by the people of the coun
ty there is no doubt.
Mr. Wilder came to the territory in
18S1 and went to work in Phoenix at
blacksmithing, wood work and wagon
building with the firm of Herrick &
Lewis. He came to Yuma in 1890 as
a guard at the territorial prison which
was then locates here, and remained
a the prison until the Cleveland ad
ministration changed all hands, and he
then engaged in mining in northern
Yuma county. He returned to the pris
on after the collapse of the Cleveland
administration and the Republicans
again assumed control, and was later
made assistant superintendent whic
position he has filled with honor and
distinction. When the prison was re
moved to Florence some months ago,
Mr. Wilder staated that he did not
wish to go to e Florence, but wished to
remain in Yuma, but influences were
brought to bear, that in making the
change of the prison that his exper
ience was needed, and he acceded to
the demands made upon him, but kept
his residence here.
But his heart has always been in
Yuma and now he is back among us
to stay and is. seeking the nomination
for the office of sheriff. That, it will
be tendered him by a grateful parry
there is no doubt. And it if dr ervetl.
A genuine westerner.! he is also a man
of the people, who has himself exper
ienced in his own proper person all the
hopes and aspirations of a westerner;
has endured western hardships and
knows western .needs. He knows ev

discharge of the duties of sheriff. Not

people. He has had more experience
in handling criminals and the criminal
class, than any other man in the coun
ty. His bravery and his integrity are
unquestioned. They have been, tried
in the crucible of experience. He is
the man for the place.
"What Arizona most needs" at the
present time is capital to develop her
immense resources and I believe that
she should enact laws wliich will in

rights of the people of Arizona who
own this magnificent undeveloped
land of plenty.
"I believe in the application of the
irrigation "system to itis fullest extent.
I am anxious to see a fine system of
mountain reservoirs installed which
will contain sufficient water at all
times to irrigate the crops, aid placer,
and other mining and improve the

Aside from that Mr, Townsend has
every "qualification for the place to
