STATE FAIR OM
S AND GIRLS
The boys and girls clubs in connec- working just as hard as you have work-
tion with the University Extension de
partment have been assigned one of
the best locations in the Agricultural
building at the State Fair grounds for
their display this year and premiums
and cash prizes amounting to over
$200 are offered to encourage and fos
ter this feature of the fair work.
The girls who have been striving
all summer long to outdo their mothers
in the art of home canning, and the
boys who have striven equally hard to
beat their fathers at raising cotton,
corn, grain, sorgum, etc., and to feed
up some porcine favorite so it would
take on weight, should now plan to
show the result of their labor at the
state fair, November 13 to 18.
Remember children, though you may
beat father or mother, there is a girl
or boy in the next county that has been
ed to attain the same end. That is the
matter to be settled. Did you beat
them in your attempts? That can only
be settled by competent judges and the
best place to settle the question is at
The school fairs decide the local
champions; the county fairs the county
champions but it rests with the state
fair to decide the champion of highest
honors; that of state sweepstake champion.
Are you a contestant in these clubs
handled by your Uncle Sam, co-operating
with the University Extension
Service? If you are you should not
fail to exhibit at the state fair. The
only way to find out how skilled you
have become is to compare your work
with the work of that other chap who
lives in the adjoining county.

This advertisement is from the Phoenix committee of Judge Kib
beys' friends Democrats and Republicans who have interested
themselves in his campaign for the United States Senate and who feel
that his splendid record should be better known to the people of Ari
zona. TO DEMOCRATIC VOTERS
Judge Kibbey is a Republican, and if he did not stand by his prin
ciples and talk Republican doctrine from the stump, you and we would
not respect him. But in office, as he has proved over and over again,
he is one of the least partisan of men. For example, when he was
Governor, of the force of 20 Arizona Rangers appointed and kept in
office by him, 17 were Democrats. Their Captain, Harry C. "Wheeler,
was and is a Democrat, and is the present sheriff of Cochise county.
E OF THE THINGS JUDGE KIBBEY HA
DONE FOR THE PEOPLE
On the bench, Judge Kibbey was first to promulgate the doctrine
that "The water belongs to the land using it," thus striking the
shackles from the land-owner and setting him free from the exactions
of the "middle man"- canal companies. The Kibbey doctrine now pre
vails throughout the west.
The U. S. Reclamation act was intended for the sole benefit of set
tlers on public lands and not for setled communities like the Salt
River Valley and the Yuma Valley, and the law officers of the Inter
ior Department at first held that the law could not be made to apply
to settled communities. But Judge Kibbey, as counsel to the land
owners of the Salt River Valley, devised a plan to get the benefits
of the law for them, and he put the plan through at "Washington.
As justice of the supreme court, as a legislator, as attorney-general,
and as governor, he made a record for high-minded patriotism,
for non-partisanship in office, and for remarkable achievement for
the public good.
Although leader of the minority only in the territorial senate
(council) he forced the passage of a bill giving equal suffrage to
As governor, he vetoed a local option bill which would have in
flicted liquor-selling road houses upon rural "dry" communities.
He forced the passage of a law prohibiting women from frequent
He forced the passage of a law putting an end to public gam
bling he being bitterly opposed to this by Democratic politicians.
He reformed the tax laws.
He led the county assessors to form an association for the equal
md just assessment of property. i
Through all the courts, to the supreme court of the United States
he fought to compel -great corporations to pay more taxes and won.
Without noise, he reformed the management of the territorial
prison; abolished "stripes," abolished solitary confinement and estab
lished humane rule; himself designed the most modern and sanitary
prison in the world, and it was constructed under his careful super
vision. Under his administration more than half a million dollars were ex
pended for needed public buildings, while the tax rate was reduced 25
He established modern and humane management of the asylum
for the insane.
His administration was noted for vigorous, efficient and econ
omical conduct of public affairs.
There being a great strike of miners at Bisbee, and demands
for troops to preserve order, he announced officially that workingmen
have a legal right to strike and that it is the duty of the state to pro
tect them in that right. He at the same time insisted that law and
order be maintained. No stroops were necessary, there was no viola
tion of law, and the strike did not cost the state a dollar.

when he was nineteen, has had twenty
seven years of experience as a practi

Has mined all the way from British
Columbia to Mexico, but is an old resi
dent of Arizona. Had his ups and
downs but no misfortune has ever led
him to lose confidence in himself or
in his fellow men. Unassumingly hon

practical knowledge of mining in all
its branches, no more capable man for
mine inspector could be suggested. Mc
candidacy became popular as soon an

it quickly spread alarm in the camp
of his opponent. Unscrupulous per
sons, accordingly, have tried to "start
something" on McKenzie, but thaw ef

man with a clean record.
