Safford - Arizona
PETITION IS FILED
The die is cast Saflford has com
pleted her petitions for the removal
of the county seat from Solomon-
ville to Safford and has filed same
with the board of supervisors
The contest is now on and the
people of Graham county will soon
learn whether they will be able to
exercise their will in selecting a live
town for the county seat and build
a court house of modern type that
will not only provide for all the
county offices but will be of credit
able appearance from an architectu
ral point of view
According to law the petitions
must contain the names of one-
fourth the voters at the last preced
ing election this has been accom
plished The nwet provision 4hat of

HIS PAST
having one third the assessable
wpalth of the county has more than
been accomplished -in fact the as
sessable wealth represented on the
petitions amounts to 1850000 over
400000 more than is required by
law
The reason that more names were
secured than needed lies in the fact
that a vast majority of the people
of Graham county favor the remov
al of the county seat to Safford be
cause they believe Sanord is the
only town in the county that is en
titled to it
Safford is now and always has
been the most progressive town in
the county It has made better
streets has built better homes and
business houses is more enterpris
ing and takes the lead in all matters
pertaining to progress and in many
other ways has shown that it is up
to the times and always willing to
go ahead with any project that has
for its object the betterment of con
ditions that would lead to a success
ful town and later to develop into
a large city
Safford is centrally located and is
easy of access It has two large
hotels several rooming houses and
restaurants thus being able to ac
commodate a greater number of
people attending court and other
county seat business and in this re
spect is far ahead of any other
town in the county
Safford has the two best banks in
the county it has the best postoffice
and postoffice building it has the
largest opera house and recently
one of the largest if not the largest
warehouses in the State has been
built for the purpose of storing
flour and grain It has the only ice
plant and creamery in the county
Within a few weeks mountain
water the best in the world will
be flowing through the pipes now
being laid thus affording a good
siipply of pure water and water for
fire protection and this water sup
ply also assures power for machinery
and electric lights
In fact Safford has for years been
forging ahead of every other town
in the county until today it leads
in the volume of business transacted
in the county
There are mtny other reasons why
the people of Graham county should
favor Safford for the county seat
more than any other town but the
principal reason is that Safford
more than nny other town in the
county is entitled to the county
seat
The people of Graham county
should help Safford in every way to
get the county seat and thus cor
tribute to the building of a first
class city in the county one of
which they can be proud and in
which they can all have an interest
Tne mattershould be laid before
the people for a vote and thus give
the people of Graham county the
opportunity of determining the ques
tion of county seat removal
THINK IT OVER
Apropos of the county seat re
moval here is something to think
of The legislature meets and passes
a law which becomes part of the
statutes After a time the citizens
of a certain community get together
and plan under this particular stat
ute to right a great wrong and
tlicy proceed according lo
i
i muni iiziri n
From Nvr York World
It will b remembered that It wns lu 1004 that Itoosevclt wrote the cele
brated My Dear Mr Harrimftn letter Raying you and I are practical men
and taking the millionaire magnate to tho White House and after a confer
ence that Mr Harriman raised 240000 which was used in the campaign
and that It was also In this campaign Perkins contributed toward Roosevelts
campaign Insurance company money belonging to women and children
law to get before the people the
opportunity to make the change
Everything has been done accord
ing to law all conditions have been
complied with and nothing left un
done to meet all its requirements
Comes now the proposition to
place the matter before the proper
tribunal which is also according to
the law
This tribunal not became of poli
tics is prejudiced and biased and
in turn allows opponents to the wish
of the majority of the people thru
counsel find the way to prevent the
I will of the people being carried out
And why is this done
Because by delays the time for
action can be passed and the oppor
tunity sought by the majority of
the peopK to have the matter prop
erly brought before them is lost
This is the way under the present
system in which even those who as
sisted in passing the law voted in
favor of it can satisfy their preju
dice against man and place and in
backing up opponents succeed in
blocking and preventing rightful
action in the matter
This strange system allows laws
for corporations to be so closely
drawn that a needle could not be
driven thru them while on the other
hand it sees laws for the common
people so loosely drawn that one
could drive an ice wagon and team
of horses thru them
So it goes on and will ever be so
until the people determine for them
selves the laws under which they
should be governed and prevent
just such things as are happening
now Action by prejudiced op
ponents to the proposition of letting
the people decide for themselves
whether or not they wish to remove
the county seat
Think it over
SECURE THE SANITARIUM
One of the very best things that
could happen to Safford and the
Gila Valley would be I he establish
ment of a sanitarium and the op-
jportunity fo securing an enterprise
of this nature is now before the
people
The fact that a hot water well
has been developed close to town
has drawn the attention df people
who can carry out successfully plans
to erect one of the largest and best
sanitariums in the southwest and
thev are anxious to do itif they
can get the support of the people
of Safford and the Gila Valley
Not only has the fact that hot
wrter can be secured with curative
mineral qualities but the very ex
cellent climate of the valley is an
added inducement to the establish
ing of a sanitarium that will un
doubtedly be a success from the time
of its opening
There is not one thing that could be
thought of or that could be practi
cally caried out to completion that
would do more for the successful
upbuilding of the valley than a
sanitarium and the opportunity is
now i ipe to secure this great business
enterprise
The people of Safford particular
ly should get busy on this proposi
tion and keep at it until the build
ing is finished and the business estab
lished
Necessity the mother of inver
tion is sometimes the father of
compulsion

and some of his hearers attended
It was n hard place he said It
was a hard school We woiked hard
and we ate little and we did uot al
ways have enough to cat either The
recollections of those days will always
abide with me uot only the hardships
of them but the joys of them too the
Joy of living aud the Joy of working
and the knowledge of the great men
who lived there My father was tho
friend and great admirer for many
years of Roscoe Conkling I shall nev
er forget the first time I saw him I
went to Utica with my father it was r
a great event in my life to visit Utica
and wo went to the courthouse
where Conkling was pleading a Hult
against the New York Central railroad
He was the picture of beautiful young
manhood for he was then approaching
middle life the handsomest mau I
thought then and I think tonight made
by the Almighty hince he made Adam
It was beautiful to look at him and
hear him speak and bee tho poise of
his body and the grace of his manuet
and tho beauty of his rhetoric Ho
was ono of the most eloquent men I
have over listened to and with It ho
bad a profound intellect
Wo had a hard struggle up there
In the country but It did us no harm
We worked hard nil the enr around

very weak I had spells whoa 1 could
