I haven't had the money to spend and I haven't
had the time to spare from my work, to shake the
hand of every man, woman and child in Arizona.
But I want your vote and support.
I can and will promise that if you elect me as
your STATE AUDITOR, I will use my time, effort
and such ability as I have, for the best interests of
the people of the Sta.te of Arizona.

URGED TO PAY INCOME
AND PROFIT TAXES WITH
In order that those who. have in
come and profits "taxes to pay may
prepare themselves in advance for the
large payments and to accumulate
gradually the funds necessary to met
them, Collector of Internal Revenue,
Lewis T. Carpenter, calls attention of
the taxpayer to the advantage of pur
chasing now treasury Certificates of
Indebtedness bearing four per cent in
terest and maturing July 15, 1919.
The Collector has been advised by
the Secretary of the Treasury that
certificates of this isue will be ac
cepted at par, with adjustment of ac
crued interest, under rules and regul
ations to be prescribed, in payment of
income and profits tax when payable
at or before maturity of the certifi
cates. "It is the aim of the Government
to make the floating of this issue of
Certificates of Indebtedness a popular
one," said Collector Carpenter, "and
it will be to the advantage of those
whose taxes are measured in compara
tively small amounts- as well as the
large corporations and wealthy per
sons to participate in the purchase of
these impregnable securities."

A Political Asset
(From New York Sun)
Arizona is some distance from our bail
iwick, but the election of a Congressman
from that state is of importance to us and
hence of interest. Arizona owns only one
a Representative-at-Large. He is Mr.
Carl Hayden, or, if our information is cor
rect, he should now be called Major Hayden
of some part of the United States Army.
And thereby hangs the following tale:
Congressman-Major Hayden voted again
st nearly all measures in preparation for
war in the Congress. He voted, it is true,
for the actual declaration of war, but fol
lowed that with a vote against conscription.
Thus' he did nearly all he could to hamper
and interfere with the energetic and sane
prosecution of the war.
But he is a candidate for re-election, and
running against him is a man who holds a
lieutenant's commission and is now and has
been actually serving in France. .Realizing
that this left him at a disadvantage, Candi
date Hayden, at the last moment, slipped off
to Washington and succeeded in dragging
down a Major's commission within the last
few weeks. Thus he proves his patriotism
at rather beyond the eleventh hours say
about 11 :49 P.M.
It is reported, however, that even this
sort of conversion to militancy is not doing
him much good or acquiring popularity for
him. Are the Arizona voters to be so easily
fooled? This is the kind of men that Con
gress can do very well without. And what
is to be thought of a War Department that
creates this kind of a "Major?"
A. M. MacDuffee returned from
the hot springs in New Mexico this
week. Mr. MacDuffee after four
weeks stay at the springs feels much
improved in health but owing to the
influenza epidemic does not expect to
get around the county much before el

this week from the Frisco Camp and
returned with a load of supplies.
John Olson is again in town on a'
short vacation after having spent the
past two months as one of the miners
of the Frisco property.
J. H. Dundon and Henry E. Lang
visited the section south of Seligmanj
this week in search of a deer. They,
left last Saturday and secured a num-1
ber of ducks somewhere east of here,
which they returned to their folks on j
the express of Saturday evening.
G. H. Brown of Yucca is one of the
residents of that town who visited
Kingman this week.
F. D. Newell and wife of Red Gap
were among the visitors to town this
Fred W. Brown is visiting here
from the hills this week.
Information has just been received
that the person who suicided at Nel
son, Arizona, some two weeks back,
was a Mexican resident of that place
by name of Lemus. No motive is as
signed for the act.
The associate editor is indebted to
P. T. Van Ness, one of the former
residents of Kingman, for a beautiful
card which has just been received
from him from San Francisco, Calif
ornia. The card gives a poetical roast
to the "Kaiser" and Pete knowing full
well the sentiments of this office,
knew that it would be gratefully re
ceived, and such has been its recep
tion for even words of condemnation
look good to us.

The lifting of the quarantine does
not mean that the other measures for
the prevention of the spreading of the
epidemic will be discontinued. Spray

adhered to. People should avoid
coming in contact with those who
have colds and gathering together

been doing good work. Several hun

been calling upon those who have no

with this work. Everyone is urged

sprayed twice daily. If you have no

THE MASK IS
Governor Hunt To "My Dear Mike"
Here is the now famous letter which Governor Geo. W. P. Hunt wrote to
Mike Sullivan, of Butte, Mont., an I.' W. W., in which the chief executive said he
was "all het up." Hunt admitted on the witness stand under oath in the Breen
libel case that he wrote it.

My Dear Mike:

Louis W. Lowenthal
August 16, 1918.
I was very glad to get your letter of August 3rd, and sorry that you cannot re
turn to Arizona this fall and plan to take part in the campaign. It is going to
be very warm here in that particular and yesterday Mr. W. A. Moeur withdrew
from the gubernatorial race leaving Fred Colter, Sidney Osborn, Fred Sutter
and Lamar Cobb. Of course, living in Bisbee and being deported from that
camp, you can realize how you would feel with Sutter, the abject tool of the cor
porations and who, I understand, took part in the deportations, in the Governor's
chair. He now has the nerve and audacity to come forward and ask the suf
frage of the people of Arizona. EVERY TIME I THINK OF IT I GET ALL
"HET UP" and then I think that MR. OSBORN IS NOT MUCH BETTER, be
cause a short time ago, when I was in California, my chauffeur was driving him
around, and he remarked to another man who was in the car that MOONEY
OUGHT TO HANG, and he also does not believe in experimenting; IN FACT I
THINK THAT HE IS JUST AS SUBSERVIENT A TOOL AS SUTTER AN
I BELIEVE THE MAN WHO REALLY REPRESENTS PROGRESSIVE DE
MOCRACY IS FRED COLTER.
You know conditions here in Arizona as well as the rest of us. The corpor
ations have the help of the subsidized, press, the reptile press as it is now being
called, and they are doing all they can to help seat their tools in office.
I am very glad that the old lady from Ireland is coming here and I hope I
shall have the pleasure of hearing her and if I have an opportunity to meet her
shall recall the incident when I saw her in Bisbee.
With assurances of my friendship, I am
Very sincerely yours,
