Our Former Editor
The following editorial from tbs
pen of Jo Chisbolm, one of Ariz ma's
most vsrsitile and foremostj.iroallsts.
recently appeared in tbe Daily Silver
Belt, pnbliibed at Miami, and ii re
produced 'n then columoi, ai others
of tbe many kindly remembrances re
cently priuted by tbe newspaper
fraternity of Arizona. relative to tbe
retirement of William Hatticb as
editor f tre Prospector.
Tbe paiiing of Bill Hatticb (rem
the editorial tripod of tbe fsmons old
Tombs'one Prospector bai elicited
many a kindly word and reminiscent
paragraph from the editorial tribe
throughout tbe reach's of tbe Ha'iay
amp, for Bill is an amiable soul and ir
so imbued with the aura of tbe sage
b'usb realm that bit Ion to tbe ro
mantio raoaio of fact and legend that
we put between covers as the history
ol Aritoos would be incalculable.
For a quarter-century Biltbas been
identified with tbe Proipector in every
possible rapacity from ink bespattered

half that time be bsi been accredit d

biralded to tbe world as tbe mani
pulator of tbe shortest les:d wire in
tbe world, from Fairbanks to Tomb
tone, nine miles. Carping and en
vious cri ics even bave declared that
Bill got his telegraph by freight. Be
tbat as it may, one thing is certain,
and that is tbat be bas kept tbe Pros
pector on a paying basis and given
bis community an honest and well
edited newspaper through years o!
adversity to tbe grand old mining
camp tbat once was the proud metro
polis of tbe eoutbaeit, the blvousc cf

tpread throughout tbe fertile reaches
of the San Pedro, Ban Simon and

mineral mnuotain ranges betwe'n, to

So tbe passing ol our old friend Bill

Listen while we whisper why we be
lieve ibat Bill baa not drawn a pais
inghand. We know tbat tbere is
only one tbing dearer to the heart of
tbat same William Hatticb than tbe
PROSPECTOR and tbat is the ARI
ZONA KICKER In the many his
tories of the Prospector; of its weekly
edition, tbe EPITAPH, and ol tbe
quaint and historic old press upon
which it Srt was printed, no men
tion has been made of tbe KICKER
For years the Sunday edition of tbe
PROSPECTOR was issued under tbe
name of tbe ARIZONA KICKER, a
newspaper tbat many believed to
exist only in tbe imagination of "il
Quad." If Hatticb does not at sume
future time issue a semi-literary Ari-
zina publication under that name
and fill it with the wealth ol legendary
and historical romance tbat be bas
lived through in wonderful old Tomb

flected soutbwaid Into Arizona from
Ibeir 13 st beloved San Francisco we
bave guessed wrongly.
While on tbe subject of Bill Hat -ticb,
it will not be amiss to record an
anecdote wholly characteristic of tbe
man. During tbe recent fracas be
tween tbe federals and constitutiota
lisU at Agua Prieta, Bill wrcte for tbe
"story" a bead line readirg "REBELS
EVACUATE AGUA PRIETA." and
left It to George Washington McFar
lin to set up. George, being in a bur
xt to get up town and wage a game of
pitch with some crony, and Bill's
handwriting being 'somewhat vague,
be set it np with indifferent attention.
When the Proipector got ont on the
street. Oscar Goll, who is surely
some war correspondent, and Jodgs
Owen Morphy got tbs first copy and
immediately started bunting Bill to
tell him (as osoal) that be bad gotten
out fas usual) tbe all-fiied rottenest
diahrag in tbe nni eree. As osual.
Bill listened with b!and and respectful
interest to their phillipio and then
wsntad to know "what tbe
