Official And Newspaper
Party Have one Great
Outing in North
A lot of people in Arizona look
upon official Governor George Wash
ington P. 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

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

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
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.

where they will make their luture

to go into the banking business- in
the California metropolis.
Mrs. Duncan, as Miss Rose Ter

relatives last April, she was the
recipient of many social attentions.

When tbe party, minus Governor

Well Known Contractor and
Legislator Accompanied
By Ben Pierce
Thomas Maddock, assemblyman
of Coconino county and one of the
largest and best known contractors
in the southwest, accompanied by
his faithful lieutenant Ben Pierce,
sailed from New .Orl ans Wednes
day of this week, after a six day's
delay in the Crescent City, for
Panan a.
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.

F. E. Fousha,
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
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.
