ry Volume 30 WILLIAMS, COCONINO COUNTY, ARIZONA FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 1922. NO. 43. MAY COMPLETE WORK ON OLD BOYCE LAKE There is considerable talk about town, of getting together and completing Boyce's Lake. Only old timers know where that lake is situated, and yet it is only a few miles from Wil liams and would make a won derful summer resort if com pleted. In the early days of Williams Mr. C. E. Boyce 'hesded a com pany which constructed a ditch from the upper part of Dog Town Wash to Dry Lake, north east of Williams on the Flag staff road. These Nmen had it figured out that by turning that wash into the dry Jake, a large j body'of water with a depth of about seventeen feet could be completing the ditch and filling the lake regardless of wheth er the water can be sold to the town or not. Such a lake sc close to town would be a great asset to the community. What a great fishing and summer re sort that would make.. It . is also possible that the town and the Santa Fe may find that this project possesses pos sibilities for developing the wa ter so much needed by both. Engineer McDonald will go ov er this proposition along with all others upon his return from Chicago. However if Boyce Lake would not prove satisfactory as a A CORRECTION (?) following add from OUNTRY DOINGS Get ready boys for the next The Messrs. run without charge in order to' give these men who think that the -News was in error last week in reporting the School election, a fair hearing before ( ting your costume ready our judge ana jurors, tne readers of the News: In last week's issue of the News in the article headed "RESULTS OF ELECTION MAKE TT R TiTTTT.nTNr: AS SURED" t.h fnllnwincr orrnrs ! drive his-team, hitdhed to appeared: light spring wagon, to Flagstaff Tr, tW rPn.IrPnt.: of , laSl WeeK- Starting ttOWH - ..v.w. v, , Reese and Mathews is big country barn dance, at the W.

We are glad to welcome Mr. Dowdy to our school as he has already shown himself an earnest stud ent. Mr. Conway has been a student in our schools for a number of years and needs no introduction.

"Pistol Toting" Seen as American Curse by Magistrate. New York. Sept. 16. Chief Magistrate William McAdoo, speaking before the internat ional police conference today, called the carrying -of pistols the curse of America . "There are more persons who carry pistols in New York and . Chicagothan in the whole of -'Europe," he said, "and it is in .. dealing with the free "sale and use of firearms that the police find their greatest problem." He ' declared there was no more crime prevalent in this country than in Europe, but that Americans living in a young country, acted on young impulses, to which pistols made an unfortunate adjunct.

But there is always room for one more, so if any patron knows .of a child of school age living in Williams, who" is not attending school, that patron will do the child as well as the school a favor by reporting it to the school. -s The school from the first thru the twelve grades has an excel lent start this year and with the fine co-operation of the patrons, this term can be made to excel last year which, no doubt, was the best year the Williams school has ever experienced. - LIBRARY ADDS NEW BOOKS The following books have mune from frost, and he is thus been added to the shelves of the Williams Public Library : Val- sistant attorney general of the State of Arizona, Judge F.

Gilliland appoirr ?d to fill out the unexpired term of F W. Perkins, in the state legisla ture, following the resi; -nation, of Mr. Perkins last yer, whs; the oldest legislator in the house at the last special ses sion. Nearly fifty years ago he enjoyed the distinction of be-, ing the youngest member of the house of the state of Iowa. He- served two terms in that legisla ture. He is a veteran of the Civil War and a thorough pa triot. While he is no longer a young man and is slightly crip pled in one foot, he is by n means crippled in his mind, a& shown by the record which he-" made in the legislature. His friends say of him that he was. sent to the legislature un der difficulties . but brought home the goods. When he en tered the house the Northern Arizona Normal was threaten ed. An effort was under way to cut the appropriation to that institution. Mr. Gilliland claims the credit for having prevented a reduction in the at)Dronria- tion for the normal and also got an appropriation for the arm ory at Flagstaff, along with oth er progressive work. "Judge" Gilliland, as he is familiarly known, spent two days in Williams the first of" this week and made a. "good im pression among the voters. He says that he will pay another visit to Williams later and' hopes to meet those voters whom he failed to meet on his first visit. He appreciates the good vote given him at the pri maries and solicits the support: of all the voters at the election ..; November 7 th. whereby Jack will not nip any. ard."

A Word of Appreciation I desire to thank my friends, one and all, for the splendid testimonial you gave me at the Primary Election held on the 12th irist., in my candidacy for the democratic nomination for Clerk of the Superior Court.

The gentlemen make no denial of having overridden the decision of the Attorney General. No doubt they are perfectly sincere in their state ments that their ruling did not ! cut off one singleyote, but they j are not fully informed. That j ruling did cut off three votes to the personal knowledge of 1 the Editor and probably cut I off many more. The three re- f erred to on hearing that such ' a ruling had been made did not ; go to the polls. We under ! stand perfectly well that the intention of the ruling on the part of some individual tne judges was to prevent the editor's voting, aye it was whispered to us even before the day of the election that such was to happen, and these judges did deny ye editor the chance to vote on his tax receipt for 1921 taxes because that re ceipt was dated 1922. This was one vote qui off , by the judges on that ruling, altho the same voter cast his ballot later on another receipt dated 1921, much to the disappointment of Machiavelli, The Ponderous. We see no need of a correction on that point, do you kind read er? Now for point the second. These judges did not like the ruling of the Attorney General on point one 'so they : ruled against it,, altho.- that was a written opinion, carefully .5pre- Baler Hard Riding. F. S. Herr has traded his automobile for a hay baler and there are times when he would like mighty well to have that auto back for instance when he wants to get to town and back in a hurry. He says that he finds the baler mighty slow! and also rough riding when he tries to get over The road, but 011 the other hand he found pre viously that the auto was even less efficient wnen it came to baling hay. Is consideration of the fact that he has a lot of hay to bale, he concluded that it would be better to bump along the roads to let the rain spoil the hay. The Covered Wagon," Em erson Hough. The books have a varied set ting ranging from the wilds of Alaska in the James Curwood story to the north rim of the Grand Canyon in the tale of Emerson Hough.

McClung, president of the Central Bank of Arizona & Phoenix, is spending a vacation in Flagstaff. He created a lit tle sensation at the Observatory city when he suggested that it would, be well to prohibit the state legislature from making Civil Service Examination, " (Initial Check) An examination for the po sition of clerk in the post office will be held in this city on Oct 21, 1922.
