Sir Whereas, at a mass meeting
held at the court house, Flagstaff,

to the call of the mayor, a resolu

dations for their comfort are pro
vided, come -not only from America
but from Europe to see unique and
interesting natural sifhts, and that,
in this respect, by the conbensus of
experts, Flagstaff holdB an unusual
position, in the following advan

The mass meeting at the court
house, called by the mayor, was at
tended by nearly every one in town
and the remarks of Prof. Lowell
on what should be done for the
town was appreciated. Mr. Lowell
left Thursday for Chicago, where
he has an appointment with Presi
dent Ripley of the Santa Fe on a
matter that is nearest to the heart
of every resident of Flagstaff. The
interest and influence of Prof. Lowell
will have a great deal to do with
the future welfare of Flagstaff, and
it is to be hoped that he will have
the moral support of all.
