It was the general opinion that with very little expense the road could be made one of the best in the,- country, and Buckeye brought twenty to thirty min utes nearer Phoenix thereby. The main fault to bo noted was the chuc k holes. The roads ' have been given care, and are well graded, but the fre quent low places were distressing to the nutoisis and two accidents were recorded from this source, in the breaking of springs on the imichinc. With these suggested improvements, filling the bad sections, the Buckeye roads can be made splendid highways. How much this means - to Buckeyt, which has not yet railroad facilities, though it may have in the near future, was fully appreciated by the excur sionists, and they pledged themselves to do all possible to promote the, bet terment of the great highway by which the auto brings Buckeye to within a suburban location, so to speak, with the capital city. There was one stretch near the Pan Ameri can Ostrich farm, over which sixty miles an hour could be made, and, proved the chauffeur's dream. The Beautiful Valley Arriving at Buckeye, the Invading hosts were met by a number of the citizens and directed to Ixing's grove on the ranch of W. B. Long and Mar shall Taft, a fine tract of p'0 acres, where the big barbecue was to take place. Nearly all the machines and carriages had arrived long before the noon hour and found the grove thronged with the people of that sec tion 'who had spared no effort or ex pense to make the most notable dis play of the good things whicn Buck eye can produce, with the work of thej industrious housewife as well as the I THE POPULISTS NAME WATSON Nebraska Delegates Crow ded Into a Corner The Fight for Hryan Was Stubborn hut Unsuccessful. St. Louis, April 3. For president of the United States, Thomas E. Watson of Georgia; for vice president, Sam uel W. Williams of Indiana. This is the ticket nominated today by the People's- Party convention after two stormy sessions, throughout which the Nebraska and Minnesota delega tions, working in the interest of Vt m. J. Bryan, strove desperately to bring about an adjournment of the conven tion until after the nominations had been made by the democratic and re publican parties. Hopelessly outnumbered, without any chance whatever of gaining their object, the Nebraska men fought des perately to the last, and When Jay A Forrest, of Albany, N. Y., mounted the platform to place Watson in nom ination, they withdrew from the con vention, attended by the Minnesota ! delegation, which consisted, however. of only one man, T. J. Weighan.

One delegate insisted that th" "report er on Bryan's paper had made a mis take, just like reporters are always do ing." but the convention jeered at the attack upon journalistic accuracy and preferred to believe "the reporter on Bryan's paper." From that instant Bryan's cause in the convention was lost and it was only a few minutes be fore the delegates from that state bolt ed the convention. . Thomas E.

They filibustered cleverly with a knowledge of parliamentary procedure and sever al times threw the convention into fearful snarls. They fought long and hard to have temporary chairman Jacob S. Coxey of Ohio, made perma nent chairman, not because of any af fection they bore him, but because they 'believed they could tangle him up and in that way stand off nomin ations. Coxeyi who is a genial easy-going presiding officer, begged them to allow him to withdraw, but they fought for him uaginst his will. They were beaten however, and George A- Honnecker of Jersey City, was made permanent chairman. Honnecker is not in sym pathy with the Bryan element, and he was not a chairman of the Coxey brand. He is a big man with a bigger voice, and ile fights. His rulings wcte fair, but he was not to be bluffed or bull-uozed. He "talked back" In vig orous style to the Nebraska men when they attacked him. 1 The downfall of Nebraska cam swiftly in the afternoon. They fell into a pit they themselves had digged.

The leaders of the two parties of the house agreed that yesterday's engagement on the skirmish preliminary' battle in which the democratic minority expects to fight out to a finish of the program, the democrats endeavoring to secure by coercion certain legislation demanded by them and a part recommended by the president, and the republican party SJ.oiMi.nno deficiency, brought forth a rejoinder by Mr. Tawney.

The filibuster was then renewed. Mr. Tawney moving the previous to abandon its defensive attitude and tpiestion and that the general debate EXPECTS A REVIVAL. Jacksonville. Fla.. April 3. Thomas E. Watson said he realized that there had been a great falling away from the populist party in recent years, "but." said he, "I believe everv man who has been a member of the populist party once is still a populist at heart and if proper efforts are made they will re turn to the party and give the candi dates their support." o PRFSCOTT REPUBLICANS AGAINST INS1 RUCTIONS An Expression at a City Las Nig-.

Pitiable Ignorance or Base Deception A woman came in my store a few days ago and told me another curio dealer hod informed her that there were no more "genuine In dian Moccasins" in existence. I almost laughed in her face. It took me about the fraction of a minute to get for her my custom house receipt showing where I had paid a 5 per cent import duty on my last shipment of real Indian Moccasins from the Black Feet Indians of Canada. Of course you can't tell what prompted the other dealer to deceive his customer in such a manner. Let us hope it was from ignorance. This will throw over the circumstance the all-covering mantle of charity. It is true that real Indian Moccasins are hard to get. It is prac tically Impossible for a novice at the business or a small dealer to get them; but if the Moccasins on sale at the Big Curio were not made by the Black Feet Indians themselves I will make you a present of the entire lot. That ought to convince you. Tou can get any size now at prices that will absolutely astonish you. You can afford to furnish every member of the family from grandma to baby Sue with an individual pair of Moccasins. R. L BALKE U. S. Indian Trader Proprietor of the Dig Curio Store on West Mams St.
