RITTENHOIJSE Jack Frost AND PRICES EVERYTHING That Jolly Hunting Party Winslow Ariz Nov. 1, 1910 Editor Williams News: You will be doing me a favor if you will publish the following item: Through the hospitality of Jim Johnson , the hunting party of Winslow did not go meat hungry, for a few days aa Jim gave them a quarter of fresh dressed veal on their arrival at the J. D. Dam. The party consisted of seven, Joe Waugh of Pt. Richmond, Cal., F. P. Riley, Jay Lebsch. Lee Tabor, Carl Eiberger, Frank and Dick Farnpworth of. Winslow. Jay Lebsch was the grand master of the camp fire. Lee Tabor was story teller and prevaricator. Joe Waqgb the native -Hoosier was a listener; Dick farnsworth was famous for going to slep on Tabor; Frank Farneworth famous for vouching for Tabor: C. Eiberger busy cleaning his gun for Tabor while Mistah Ob Riley was setting on the soaD box whitling and whist ling the Irish Washwoman. Lee Tabor, Dead-Eye Dick, was first lucky, shot a 2 point buck off of the rim of a canyon and he fell 20 feet below and broke off both horns, so it was unnecessary to pack the head, into camp. Frank F. the B. P. O. E. Kid, landed a 5 pointer and knocked down a hundred or more. Dick, the Blew foot kid was there when it comes to cooking. Jay Lebsch, The Bismarck shot a 2-pointer and he also shot he don't know how many feathers out of wild turkeys. Joe Waugh the native of Indiana went out and shot one by moonlight one morn ing. Mister Oh Riley said he must have wanted to commit suicide as he stood up and let me shoot him 3 times before he fell, 4-pointer for O'Riley. C Eiberger put too much polish on his gun, it shined so he could not slip up on them, for they saw him coming and ran away. Th'ev came back with four large bucks and one turkey feeling fine, and ready for work for another year. The Supai school which opened Oct. 3d, has completed a most suc cessful month under the tutelage of Miss Myrtle Kidd of Flagstaff, the accomplished daughter of Pro bate Judge R. J. Kidd. SIXTH ARIZONA I ICIUtllUJCUALi r AliX Phoenix was never before so elaborately decorated and gorge ously illuminated nor in a happier frame of mind, all in anticipation of the big Territorial Fair. The fair management says it will he the best fair ever held in Ari zona. Certainly the preparations are on a grander scale than ever before. Exhibitions for the Mineral De partment have been arriving for the past' two weeks. Col. Epes Randolph, Supt., of this depart ment has made several trips to encourage exhibitors in all parts of the territory. In the Horse and Mule depart ment one Btable in Maricopa county will show thirty six colts, all of them prize winners wherever they have exhibited. - Tbe morning parade of blue rib bon cattle has always been a feature of the fair, and -this year will be more than worth while seeing. The Supt. of the sheep show has been bo successful this year that over nine different breeds will be on exhibition. All of the larger sheep outfits of Northern Arizona will have exhibits at this year's fair, Al Tyler who last year was a judge in the poultry department upon completing his work said, ''There never was a better all around exhibition of ducks, tur keys, pigeons and ostriches in any show I have ever attended, and I have worked continuously as a judge for the past ten years in dif ferent states from the Atlantic to the Pacific." This year the ehow Al Tyler was speaking of will far surpass that of any previous year. In the past the apiary and dairy departments have been small, this year there is keen rivalry and the dairy exhibits in particular will be one of the most interesting on the fair grounds. , The women's department with its various branches, culinary, fine arts, and textile fabrics is always interesting and special premiums have brought an increased number of exhibitors. It is to be expected that follow ing last year's contest for the ban ner Agricultural county prize, that this year more concern will be paid by the County Commissioners to this department. As one agricul turalist put it, "The county that wins first prize this year will know that they have been in some fight." Yuma, Cochise, Pima, Yavapai and Maricopa are all going after it and will have big exhibits at the fair. . The exhibits for the educaiional department have been so carefully planned that with but few excep tions every school district in Ari zona will berepresented. Of course the speed events on the race track, both horse and automobile, are the principal pan of the afternoon program. The automobile drivers are some of tbe best known men in their line in the country. While of the horses entered fully seventy per cent have performed upon the grand circuit. The Phoenix Board of Trade have opened an information bureau containing lists of several thous and roomB which can be secured at reasonable rates. Visitors to the fair should write or telegraph to Harry Welch, Secretary of the organization, for reservations. This bureau will be open day and night. ' You cannot afford to miss this year's territorial fair. Railroad rate for the round trip from Wil liams, $8 75. P. N. Snyder, the railroad con tractor, accompanied by his wife left for Los Angeles Wednesday for a few days visit with friends. "The Williams Theater is remod eling : tbeir theater to meet tbe rules of the Board of Underwriters.

J. H. Hudson and J. H. Attwood left yesterday for an overland trip by automobile to the Denton Land Colony holdings in Texas. Both gentlemen are heavily interested in this land colony, and will thoroughly inspect their land be fore returning. They will travel in two automobiles and go by way of El Paso; thence to San Antonio, and from there to the Denton Colonv. It will be a fine trip if they do not get stalled the desert. .Wm. Miller and J. L. Elder, both late from Weed, California, arrived in Williams Sunday morn ing enroute to New Orleans. They stopped over and spent the day, while Will met his host of friends and well wishers many of whom were loath to see him leave. Mr. Miller has been head filer for tbe Weed Lumber Company for tbe past eighteen months, and is now on a sightseeing trip to the south. There was another shuffle of the cards at tbe local depot this week and the line up, as near as we can figure it out, is as follows: R. C. Barnard, day freight cashier; Guy Riggs, day bill clerk; Sam Deger ing, day ticket agent and cashier; Earl Rawlins, day baggageman; H. D. Coley, night baggageman; Robbins, night ticket man; G. F. Kuhn, is in charge of the freight depot. Harvesting is now about com pleted on the west Bide of the Bill Williams mountain, and the far merB report a prosperous year. Ei Hunter, as usual, takes the lead and haa harvested about 500 bush els of corn and about the usual amount of potatoes and cabbage W. J. Parker and the Smith broth era also harvested good crops of corn, potatoes and hay. W. W. Goode will leave today for Phoenix with Wm. Miller's fast mare Briar Rose, which haB been entered in the free for all running race. It is confidently expected by Mr. Millers many friends that Briar Rose will bring home the long end of the purse. Goode will ride tbe little mare in the big event. Geo. S. Patien, who has been doing duty as town marshal during the absence of C. S. Patterson, has made a splendid officer and has shown his ability as a policeman. The News would like to see the business men take the matter in hand and see that he is appointed regular night marshal. Williams certainly needs a night officer. Mr. and Mrs. C. S. Patterson and little daughter returned home Wednesday on No. 1 from their month's vacation spent in Chicago and St. Louis. They report a very enjoyable time, but were pleased to get home. ' Mr. Pattereou has re sumed bis duties as town marshal and special Santa Fe officer. Last Sunday" Buggeln & Kinser, C. E. Boyce and Wm. Donaldson shipped ten cars of cattle to Los Angeles and Sin Diego. The cattle were in exceptionally fine condition and averaged 1125 pounds. The infant daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Dalton died last Saturday evening and was buried Sunday afternoon. The little one was about three months old. SHOOTING AFFRAY AT RAILROAD CAMP A shooting affray occured at Fairview, a Biding abcut fourteen miles west of William", last Sun day, and a Mexican named Antonio Traebero is lying in the county hospital at Flagstaff with a badly mangled leg and may probably die, as the result of the wound, and Andreas Maecelo, the Mexican who did the shooting, is a prisoner in the county jail. The shooting occurred over a fair senorita, Maria Diez. It seems that the Diez woman and Maecelo were living together, and Maecelo became jealous over the attentions being paid by Traebero to his fair partner. Last Sunday evening Traebelo called at the shack occu pied by Marcelo and the Diez woman, remaining about half an hour, when he left and started for the camp where he was employed Marcelo left tne shack while Trae belo was there and borrowed a Winchester from another Mexican and laid in wait for bis supposed rival. When Traebelo came along Marcelo fired, the ball entering the fleshy part of the thigh, completely shattering the bone, causing what is belieyod at this time to be a fatal wound. Deputy Sheriffs Pulliam and Tackett were telegraphed for and arrived at Fairview Monday after noon and soon bad all the parties under arrest. They were all taken to Flagstaff on the evening train Monday evening. The officers haye been busy all week looking for witnesses for the preliminary, examination of Mae celo, which will be held as soon as the condition of the wounded man will permit, if the wound does not prove fatal. " ' Nimrods Numerous Nimrods in Williams are too numerous to enumerate, some are better however than others. City Attorney Geo. W. Glowner wsnt out around Bill Williams moun tain Saturday last and stayed all night at the Smith Bros., ranch. Sunday morning he with Mr. Smith got 1 out of bed about 4 o'clock and rode about six miles in a Boutherly direction from tbe Smith ranch across Hell's canyon where the game were supposed to be plentiful. The hunters there encountered several other enthu siastic hunters; among them Mr Carlson and son, Mat Ern and others. While deer and turkey seemed to be plentiful none of the sports men were lucky except the legal light. He bagged three turkeys. Mr. Glowner came home Sunday evening and Monday morning shipped his successful bag to bis mother, who is 80 year? of age, in Los Angeles. Mr. Glowner says he was deter mined his mother, who, when she was a young woman on the frontier of Missouri, ate wild turkey, should enjoy one more feast of that highly prized game bird.

J., a nephew of Ranger Benbam, cams in on No. 9 Wednesday and will make an extended visit in this section of the country TERRIBLE ACCIDENT AT RAILROAD CAMP W. H. Erwin, foreman of tbe L. J. Smith Construction Co , wan fatally injured at 6 o'clock last Saturday night by a blast. The men had just put off the last shot of the day and Mr. Erwin hart taken shelter beneath one of the dirt cars. Tbe blaBt was an unusal heavy one and tbe rock and dirt were thrown several feet in tbe air. The car under which Mr. Erwin was taking shelter from the debris is one of those dirt cars that are operated by chains to dump the dirt on either side of the track and it is supposed that a large rock came down on tbe Bide of the ear where Erwin was and tiltered the car over on his head, fracturing his skull. He was brought into the city at once and the doctors dressed , the wound as best they could. Mr. Erwin is a recent arrival here, having come from Ft. Worth, Texas, about two weekB ago. His wife was notified at Ft. Worth and she left Ft. Worth Sunday and arrived in Williams Wednesday. Mr. Erwin died Tuesday morn ing, having never gained conscious ness and let us hope that he never realized what struck him. The little round hole in the base of his skull was viewed by several people and one can hardly believe that the blow that struck him could, hardly cause his. death. Mrs. Erwin who was expected to ar rive Tuesday night has not arrived yet and the L- J. Smith Construct ion Co., who have kept the wires hot in trying , to locate her; ever since she was supposed to have left Ft Worth, Tex., Sunday morninp, are at a loss to know what has be come of her. They wired her funds at El Paso immediately upon her request and advices from the ticket agent there ehow she never called for transportation Great . credit should be given . Mr Scott Mitchell of the Smith Construction company in doing all in his power to save . the life of this man, sparing - no ex- pense with physican and nurses. . The remalnB were shipped to Ft. Worth. Texas. Frtdsy morning at the expense of the Smith Con struction Co., although the Masona and Odd Fellows are willing to do so, Mr. Erwin was a member of these two orders as well as tbe Knights of Pythias and advices from Ft. Worth show Mr. Erwin to be a man of honor, a loving husband and a kind father. , Mr. Erwin leaves a wife and seven children to mourn hia death. The most' interesting pictures eo far shewn at the Williams Theater have been presented this week, and the attendance has been good each evening. The Friday evening pic tures for the little folks are proving to be far more successful than was anticipated by Mr. Swingrover the manager, and he is leaving nothing undone that will add to tbeir amusement and at the eame time, instruct them in many ways. It will do the children good to send them to his entertainment each Friday evening, after a week's hard study in echool.
