Scott who has been recommended by the Commer cial Club for the office of School Trustee of Williams School Dis trict No. 2 is a native of Norfolk Virginia, but for the past sev enteen years he has resided in New Mexico, being in govern ment employ. For the past fourteen years he has been con nected with the Forest Service, and for the past year he has been stationed at Williams as Supervisor of the Tusayan For est. He is a man of education and of high moral character, affable, agreeable and success ful in his association with men. Mr. Scott takes an impartial interest in all things for the good of the town in which he lives. He is a man of family with three children in our pub lic school, and possesses a live ly and intelligent interest in all school and civic matters. Mr. Scott's supporters anticipate for him a strong vote from the citi zens of the town at the school election Marjjh 28. He will make, an efficient member of the Board of Trustees, if elec ted. A FEW NEWS NOTES FROM THE COUNTY SEAT W. H. Morse pled guilty on two counts for forging checks, he will receive sentence today, (Friday). Judge Jones drew trial jur ors Thursday, to report on the 21st. Manuella Soresbo pled guilty on a charge of bootlegging. He was credited with making the best grade of whiskey that has been circulated locally, but the high grade of his product did not serve to lighten his sent ence. The case of the State vs. Re meriez on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon, will be the first to be called in the com ing term of court. The second case will probably be that of Weems and son, charged with cattlestealing. Odd Fellows and Rebekahs Feast and Dance The members of the I. O. O. F. Camp No. 15 and of the Re bekahs No. 10, together with a number of invited guests, as sembled about the festive board at the I. O. O. F. dining rooms, and partook of something far more delicious than a fatted calf a supremely fatted pork er. The pig which came from the C. C. Carpenter ranch m Red Lake Valley, weighed 53 pounds when dressed and was roasted whole. The chefs who gave the roast the touch of per fection were Scotty McDougall Mr. Easton. We would not hesitate to state that these gentlemen have missed their calling and should be chefing for the Waldorf or Astoria, ex cept for the persistent rumor that Mrs. McDougall had a hand in the roasting.

The loot taken included silk shirts, ties, shoes, kodaks, soxs, two suits of clothes and two overcoats. The size f he artices taken and finger prints left on various articles in the store of fered the only clue to the rob bers. o o o Ladies Aid to Give Dinner O O Of . The Ladies Aid of the Meth odist church has decided to give a dinner at the l.U.U. Jr. Mall on the afternoon of April 7th, at six o'clock. Following the dinner a social evening will be spent in the large room on the lower floor. An excellent pro gram is being prepared for the occasion. This program will embrace a number of new games and many other fea tures. A delightful time is anticipated. Miss Ida Owens returned Tues day night from California where she has been visiting with her sister. She will re sume work at the Variety Store on Saturday. DR. PERRIN WINS TITLE TO "NEW WATER" LANDS The goods and money re 4 ceived from Mrs. B. F. Sweet wood. Signed : L. P. Redwine By. E. H. Martin For School Trustee I herewith announce that I am a candidate for the office of School Trustee of Williams School District No. 2., subject , to the decision of the voters at the School Election, March 26. JAMES A. SCOTT Dr. E. B. Perrin has been ad vised that the secretary of the interior has rendered a final de cision in his favor, and his title to what is known as."NewWa- ter" north of the Baca errant. This is a somewhat well known litigation, which has been pend ing for several " years in. .the United States land' department. ur. jrerrin Dougnt six nun- cired and. Lorty acres in section fifteen north of the Baca grant many years ago, and John Jones Bishop' now deceased. went on the land years after the doctor had purchased the same from the railroad com pany, and claimed to be the owner of it. In 1918, when the and was surveyed, Bishop made application for a home stead entry for eighty acres within the boundaries of this section fifteen, which contain ed water. Dr. Perrin filed a protest against the allowance of the Bishop application, claim ing that he was the owner of the land. This is the second time the matter has been up to the secre tary of the interior, and the de cision of the secretary is that the Bishop application for homestead entry be cancelled and held for naught. This gives Dr. Perrin title to the lands, the possession of which he has been deprived of for many years past. Prescott Courier. That pocket billiards is a popular form of amusement and recreation in Williams is well shown by the large crowds that gather rightly at th? iul tana Smoke House and Pocket Billiard Parlors in this city, this popular place of amuse ment and exercise is equipped with several of the latest make and size pockee billiard tables, made" by the Brunswick Blake Collender Co., which are kept in first class condition and ready for the many patrons to play on at all times. That this up to date method of doing business is appreciated is well demonstrated by the large number of tourists that make the Sultana - thie head quarters while in the city. In connection with the bil liard parlors is a nicely appoint ed and sanitary soft drink de partment where you can satisfy the inner man with anything in that line, and most important of all, at moderate price. The cigar counter at the Sul tana i.j a store within itself. Here you will find the very best there is in cigars, cigarettes and tobaccos, also a complete line of the finest candies that are made in the entire country and at the same prices that pre vail in lrge cities. The .Sultana does both a wholesale and a retail business. Mr. R. M. Reese, the genial manager invited the writer to visit the stock room and it sure was worth while. Dozens of boxes of dainty sweets placed in neat array and tier after tier of the highest grades of imported and domestic cigars. The value of the stock carried by the Sul tana could not be duplicated for less than $10,000. Mr. Reese is not only the head of the Sultana Smoke House, but is also manager of the locai Motion Picture Thea tre; This twentieth "century play house has ii seating capac ity.'of nearly 5000 and-'enjoys the' patronage of ail who appre ciate first run pictures of the highe'st moral tone. Another i thing we wi3h to call attention of our readers to is the fact that in a great many town the size of Williams, the nonarrival of pictures means no show. Such is not the case with Mr. Reese who makes it a point to have in reserve at all times at least $1500 worth ot up to dare pictures. 'I he price of admis sion at the Sultana, has not been raised despite the increas ed cost ot films. Practically every other t-heatre in Arizona and Southern California has in creased its charge for admission 35 cents being the minimum and 75 cents the maximum charge in other theatres for regular run pictures. This makes the average price in other theatres, about 55 cents. Thus the people of Williams are still able to see first class pictures at the same price charg ed six years ago, which is now less than half the average charge made in other cities of Arizona and California. be literally driven from the table in order to make room for the assembly of f easters. After all had eaten their fill of the delicious repast, those who still love to trip the light fantastic, assembled on the dancing floor below and whiled away another delightful hour or two. This was one of the best at tended feeds given by the order and bespeaks the growing in terest-being taken by both old and new members of the lodge. Brakeman McMillan Killed Brakeman McMillan was killedThursday while making the run from Flagstaff to Win slow. County Attorney Gold and Judge Kidd left on No. 22 Thursday afternoon, to go to the scene of the accident and hold a coroner's inquest. The cause of death according to the first report, was being struck by a signal post while on a fast moving train. o o o MORNING SERVICE AT EPISCOPAL CHURCH The service at St. John's Mis sion next Sunday, March 13th., will be held in the morning at 1 1 o'clock instead of the after noon at 5, as heretofore. A larger number than usual were present last Sunday when Bish op Atwood preached. The music iurnisned Dy tne quar tette which is now singing regu larly at the services of this church adds a remarkable val ue to thelservices. We extend a hearty invita tion to all to attend the service next Sunday morning. o o o James A. Scott, local Forest Supervisor, is back at his office again after having been absent for a week with a severe attack of indigestion,- attended with a high fever. ' - ' " o o r"'. . o Chas Wade underwent an op eratiori at his. home, today and at last reports was recovering satisfactorily. o o o For Sale A set $10. ARIZONA HOUSE . o o o Organize Moose The Moose Lodge organized here last week and will meet each Thursday night, at the I. O. O. F. Hall. The News had hoped to secure a full report of the organization but apparent ly the press agent of the new lodge must have lost his way in the maize of Williams streets and so failed to reach the News office. We hope he will have better luck another week, as we are anxious to tell what a fine start this lodge has made. Henry Redwine was born in Mexico in the year-1862. From Mexico his parents moved to Texas where the earlier part of his life was spent. He first made Williams his home in the year 1901. and he claimed tno? town as his residence from that day until his death here, Thurs day, March 3rd. Mr. Redwine was an efficient workman experienced in many lines of work. He spent a num ber of years on the ranges as a cowboy and also was exper ienced in the care of sheep. In addition to this, he was an ex pert miner, a fair carpenter and an all round workman. He al ways did his work conscien tiously and won praise from those for whom he worked. Before coming to Arizona, Mr. Redwine spent 13 years with the Texas Ranger force. While in Arizona he served for a time as town Marshal of Wil liams and also spent one year as deputy U. S. Marshal, in Phoenix, making an active and efficient peace officer. As a companion he was cheer ful and generous, and was well liked among the mem of his ac quaintance. Those who knew him in early days say that he always avoided a fight when he could, but tht he would fight when pressed and that once in a fight he wah a hard man to go up against. He was very kindherted and his generosity amounted almost to a fault. He helped others to the extent that he deprived himself. At the time of his death he was sup porting his aged mother and, two nephews: Frederick and Francis Seward, and his niece Ruby Seward. " Without wife or children of his own, he was both father and mother to these little children and no parent could have been more patient with his own children nor more thoughtful of their needs. In the death of Henry Red wine the community has lost an efficient workman and an upright and respected citizen; his mother has lost a loyal and faithful son, and the nephews and nieces have lost the one who was playing the part of father and mother to them in a manner that could not be im proved upon by any one person. Henry Redwine is survived by his mother, now 81 years of age, and by four sisters. ENTHUSIASTIC MEETING OF THE BASEBALL FANS An enthusiastic meeting of baseball fans was held at the Justice of Peace office, Thurs day night. The attendance was good and indications are that Williams will have one of the best teams this season, that the town has ever known. H. A. Sellman was elected captain of the team, and the management of the ball club is entrusted to three men: Dr. E. A. Miller, E. J. Nordyke and Mayor Johnson. These men. also represent the Commercial Club which is backing the team. Arrangements are under way to clear the ball ground and then cover the diamond and infield .with the white gravel that is being used on the streets of Williams at the pres ent time. A force of fans will begin work on the grounds, Sunday, the weather permit ting. Captain Sellman announces that all baseball players who would like a place on the team, are invited to come for a tryout Sunday afternoon or any other day when, the team is practic ing. Jveryone is welcome to try for the team, and the play ers will be chosen strictly on ability. Card of Thanks We take this opportunity to thank all those who assisted us at the death and .during the bur ial of our son and brother, Hen ry Redwine, and especially we wish to thank J. J. Gilson and, Mrs. B. F. Sweetwood. MRS. T. P. REDWINE MR. E. T. MARTIN Gave Back Fifty Minutes Two hoboes who had' been bothering some of the residents of Williams with pleas for aid and by loafing about the resi dence district, were lodged in the Town jail by Marshal Bob by Burns, on Thursday. After the men had been imprisoned for half an hour, Mr. Burns took them before Judere Mc Dougall. The Judge gave them one hour in which to get out of town. They departed immed iately, going eastward. Thos. A. Smith saw them hurrying? away and hailing them, asked what was their rush. They, re plied that they had been im prisoned and then ordered .out of town, and they asked Smith to tell that Judge that they were giving him back 50 of the 60 minutes given them as they did not need this part of the alloted time. MARSHAL BURNS PICKS UP FOUR AUTO THIEVES of O'Henry, ROOMING TEAM FOR 2600 pound, Will trade Ford truck. miles west of Highway. SALE 9 years, cheap, must sell, for Ford car or A GREVEN, li2 Maine on ' state Livestock and Range Report Light snow- Sunday riight over most of the grazing 'sec tion of the northern counties was of temporary benefit , to rangea.and stock, enabling the latter to feed farther than usual from established tanks. Three inches covered the ground at Williams and about two inches fell in the vicinity of Flagstaff but it was dry and fluffy and is disappearing rapidly. High temperatures have caused a ra pid disappearance of snow from higher elevations of the district a recent telegram from the Sup erintendent of the White Moun tain Apache Indian reservation states that the snow is all gone on south slopes and level ground below 9,000 feet but that some is left on north slopes from 7,000 feet up. . In that section the range continues good and there is still sufficient water for stock. The general lack of moisture over the great er part of the range country is making itself apparent in the condition of stock which is much below that of last season. In the secondary grazing sec tions stock range from poor to fair and losses are already considerable. Town Marshal, Bobby Burns picked up four boys in a stolen Buick car, here Monday at noon. Bobby got a hunch from the looks of the four as they were taking gas at the White Garage, that something was wrong. He noticed that the car did not have a 1921 license no., and so marched the four down to the Justice of Peace of fice to have them brought up for running a car without a li cense 5f for .'nothing more ser ious. -"- - ' 1 ' Upon being questioned, one of the boys made the claim that the car belonged to his father who had given him permission to drive his three companions to California in it. A telegram to the supposed father elicited the information that the car, a Buick six, had been stolen from La Junta, Colo. C. D. Stewart, Sheriff at La Junta, wired for the boys to be held pending his arrival in Williams. Further questioning by the local officers brought out the stories of the boys. It develop ed that two of them had stolen the car and the other two had been picked up along the road. On the way west, the four boys had indulged in petty thieving, picking up pistols, rifles and other small articles, which they later sold. Their ages were 15, 16, 18 and 23. Sheriff Stewart arrived in Williams Wednesday night. He paid Bobby a reward of fiftv dollars for the capture of the thieves, and returned with the boys to Colorado.
