THURSDAY.

Hunt as a distinct frost. The boast is made by the governor's political opponents that if he dares fo come forward at the primaries in 1914 . for govemoo, senator, con gressman, state senator, assembly man, sheriff, county clerk, consta ble, supervisor, roadmaster or anyl old job, he will be buried under a mass of condemnatory ballots which will show him just what the people of Arizona think of him officially. But whatever the Arizona citizen and citizenesses think of His Ex cellency George Washington Peter Hunt, he is alright primitively; one o! the boys who goes out on a trip facing all kinds of hardships, meet inor thpm rheerfullv. in fact more cheerfully than anybody else, and laughing at the other fellows who opt dnwn in the mouth when the auto hits a muddy hill and .every body has to get out and play mule ask William F. Dermont about his mule experience in the cold gray hours of last Monday morning, and Bob Wen te; they will tell about just how much of real primitive manhood it takes to play mule on a muddy hill . Hunt, the prince of good fellows by the test of real manhood, was abundantly proven during the trip to and from the Hopi Indian dance last week at H ual pi . The governor, accompanied bv Warden R. B. Sims, of the state penitentiary, Har " ry Welch, the live secretary of the Phoenix Board of Trade, Jack Al kire, head of the big Alkire print ing house in Phoenix, Lyle Abbott, the brilliant reporter of the Phoenix Republican, Bob Turnbull, of the Arizona film company and Chaeuffer Harry Shea, mo'ored from Phoenix to Hualpai under weather conditions which tested the hardihood of the entire party. Time and again the big state machine was down and seemingly out, and just as often Governor Hunt shed his coat, one time his shirt, and another time even his pants, when the machine stalled in midstream, to grab the rope and never let up until the ma chine was high and dry and cleaned up for a fresh start. At one time, six miles this side of Hualpai, the governor's party came across the big Babbitt ma chine, of Flagstaff, seemingly hope lessly bogged. In the bogged ma chine were Mrs. Babbitt, Miss Bab bitt and Miss Helen Babbitt, be sides male appendages who seemed At.pA bv the might. Led bv Gov- - j i - ernor Hunt, the official party lugged rocks to build a foundation for the swamped machine, and according to Welsh and the rest of the party, Hunt lugged the biggest rocks, kept the party in a constant uproar with' his good natured sallies, and sent a . bunch of Hunt booster! back to Flagstaff which will very likely turn that Standpat republican stronghold into a Hunt hotbed at the primaries next year. According to Sims, Welch and others, who passed through Wil liams Sunday on their way back to Phoei.ix, the Babbitts, of Flagstaff, gave them a royal time in the coun ty seat Saturday evening. They got up a dance, and saw to it that BRIGAND CHIEF AND VIC TIM WERE OLD COLLEGE CHUMS American Captured in Italy Greeted By Bandit Head And Released Special to The News New York, August 28. It is not given to adventurers alone to have adventure. Adventure will come to the cottage as well as castle. Witness the case of William Hol- lingshead who arrived on a Cunar- der today. He spent his vacation along the Mediterranean. One night arriving at a small village in Italy he strolled into the inevitable inn and ordered some wine. Sitting over in a darkened cor ner of the room were three strangers with a bottle of wine on the table between them. They wori fierce mustacnios :d smoked furiously at cigarettes. Hollingshead spent his money lavishly like any sailor ashor after being three months aboard ship. He must have spent as much as 20 cents, when he stepped outside , and sauntered along the roadside taking in the beautiful moonlight scenery. At a bend in the road he was pounced upon by the three men, a bag forced over his head and his arms tied behind him.

RQS E BRIO TERRY IS E OF A BANKER Former Williams Girl Soon to Visit Parents Here and Live in Los Angeles On Thursday of this week Mise Rose Terry, daughter of Engineer Terry, of the Santa Fe railroad roundhouse in Williams, was mar ried in Minco, Oklahoma, to John Duncan, Cashier of the First Na tional Bank, of that hustling little city Mr. and Mrs. Duncan are now on their way to Williams where they will visit the old home folks, take in the Grand Canyon, and then proceed to Los Angeles. where they will make their luture home, as Mr. Duncan has arranged to go into the banking business- in the California metropolis. Mrs. Duncan, as Miss Rose Ter ry, was a very popular girl in Wil liams. Before starting for Okla homa on an extended visit with relatives last April, she was the recipient of many social attentions. Herbert Hilkins, manager of the Babbitt meat market at Flagstaff, was here yesterday. the bachelors and otherwise in the party danced with the loveliest bslles of Flagstaff every number on the program. When tbe party, minus Governor Hunt reached Williams Sunday noon, Lyle Abbott was named a committee of one to hunt up the editor of The News, an old friend of Sims, Welch and the Republican man. Dinner was served at the Fray Marcos and two hours delight fully spent talking over old times in Southern Arizona.

Maddock and Pierce left William? early last week and were to have sailed from New Orl ans last Sun day, but the train was delayed and they missed the steamship by six hours. Assemblyman Maddock has purposed to see the big ditch before it was- filled with water, but in this he mav be disappointed as dis patches during the week announced the plans for blowing up one of the holding dams and filling the famous Culebra cut. Maddock also is deeply interested in all that pertains to concrete work and probably in no other enterprise since history began has this form of work been studied and brought to perfection as on the Panama canal. . " The two men will be gone .nearly a month. Mr. Maddock was eager to have Mrs. Maddock join him for the trip, and all arrangements were made to that end, with Mrs. Mad dock's mother taking care of the bright young Maddockes during her absence, but smilling baby faces were too much for the mother heart when it came to the test, and Mrs. Maddock did not go.

E. Fousha, Clerk. That the war with Mexico, if it come, is very likely to prove what Colonel Theodore Roosevelt terms :i "second lieutenant's war," and that the fighting ex-president will take no part in the possible war unless Japan should happen to get ctky and throw the power of her navy t. the side of Mexico in hopes of big territorial and naval base conces sions to the south, is the most inter esting real news coining out of Hualpai, scene of theamiml II pi snake dance. According in a very -high state official, who passed through Wil- liams on his way back to the capi tal at Phoenix last Saturday, Colo nel Roosevelt made the following statement, quoted almost verbatim to Peter Clark McFailane, the bril liant correspondent of Colliers, who with many other newspaper writer of note attended the dance. "Oh, of course, if it is only a war with Mexico, I do not expect to take part, as it will be only a sec ond lieutenant's war, but if Japan . inteferes, I'll get in the game." The colonel's air and tone left no -doubt in the minds of his hearers, and they were numerous, that he expects trouble over the Mexican situation. Afterwards he said to J. F. Alkire, in the hearing of others: "Under the present conditions I would not intefere. It is a simple matter for the police to handle." - Which leads one to believe the fighting colonel of the Rough Riders has about as much belief in the real fighting powers of Mexico as Japan had for those of China after the peacock feather display of courage by the Flowery Kingdom in the late nineties. Alkire is the head of the big printing house of that nani in Phoenix, formerly .U'NeiPs. He is one of the big business men of the capital city, and while he did not know he was talking for publi cation, what he said is absolutely truBtwortny. Colonel Roosevelt and his two sons arrived at Hualpai a couple of days ahead of the dance. Wun Governor Hunt, of Arizona, he oc cupied a special box and took a deep interest in the weird antics of tiie dancers. 1 li it ' -.' til 1 9 14 AUTOMOBILE MODELS ,"'u READY FOR DELIVERY " IN WILLIAMS Babbitt-Poison Stocked With The Very Latest In M Standard Makes .1 Nineteen-fourteen standard make 1 cars are ready for delivery on order , in any part of Northern Arizona by -u the Babbitt-Poison Company, of this city.
