There "are two classes of horses to be bought; one

they must be gentle enough to harness. We will
call or send some one to look at stock at any time,

may bring it in on inspection day and we will buy

banks officers. The penalties imposed
by the comptroller, he said, were legal
and fully justified by the condition
which he found. He reviewed the alle
gations of "dummy loans", of excessive
loans to cfi'icers and of the stock
brokerage business conducted by the
bank's officers through the bank in
violation of the law and asserted that
the comptrcller was but performing his
duty in insisting he be acquainted with
the details of all these transactions.

Joe Hunnycut's Financial Operations
in Arizona May End With His
Extradition
Joe Ilunnycut, alias Joe Murphy,
made a more serious mistake than
he thought v.hen he deluged this
and Gila county with fraudulent
checks. He furnished a clue which
Sheriff Bailey of Chickasha, Tex.,
armed with requisition papers is fol

in Texas for robbery, burglary, for
gery and some other crimes com
mitted in a brief spasm of freedom
from the penitentiary of that state.

a relative of George Hunnycut, a
well known contractor of tnls city,
and has no relatives here. He left
owing for his board and room. He
disposed of one check at Globe, an
other on his return to Roosevelt to
Webb of the hotel there but that was
discovered to be fraudulent. Hunny
cut got rid of still another check
to Bill Boardman at Payson and
when Roardman seemed dissatisfied.
Hunnycut, who appears to be an
accommodating individual obtained
the money to make that check good
by securing money on another worth
less check from Mrs. Good fellow liv
ing across the street.
Hunnycut paid for his transporta
tion with another fraudulent check
for $100. In the meantime the fin
ancial transactions had been brought
to the attention of Sheriff Adams.
The sheriff learning that most of
these checks were floating in the
Gila county atmosphere telephoned
to Sheriff Haynes about it. The
sheriff learned that he had an ad
ertisement desiring the return of
Hunnycut to Texas from the peniten
tiary of which state he had emerged
as late as last Xovember.
Sheriff Adams has learned that
Hunnycut robbed a woman of Texas
of something mere than $f000 last
fall. He stole at the same time a
gold watch which aroused the sher
iffs suspicion. He has learned by
correspondence that the watch was
stolen from this woman.
GO EASY ON BETTING
A HAT THESE DAYS
"I'll bet you the best hat in town"
is a wager fraught with mighty ex
pensive possibilities these days. Us
ually it means that the loser of the
bet digs up about twenty bucks, but
this week the ticket would call for
fifty. It seems that a few months
ago the John B. Stetson company
thought it might be well to make up
a little exhibit of their honest-to-good
ness clear beaver hats, so fixed
up a couple of thousand dollars
worth of real hats and started them
on a big trip. First the display went
to the famous Silverwood store in
Los Angeles, then it came to Phoe
nix where it is being shown at
llanny's.
Included in the exhibit

dollar specimens being in the "nap

TO TALK OVER

United Produce Growers'
Association Meets "With
Chamlier of Commerce
Saturday to Talk Over
Important Work
There will be a meeting at
on Saturday, at the rooms of the
Chamber of Commerce in this city
for the purpose of a general confer
ence with the lettuce growers of the
valley. The meeting is called under
the auspices of the United Produce
Growers' Association of Arizona,
which was organized and is grow
ing out of the efforts of the farm
ers and commercial elements of the
valley to provide better marketing
facilities. '
The Produce Growers' Association
has been making considerable pro
gress in lining up avenues whereby
attract to the valley a large number
cf produce buyers, and it has been
said by those in authority that as
soon as the farmers are in a posi
tion to positively produce at stated
times the various crops that find a
good market in the east, including
lettuce, beets, cabbages, etc., they
will be in a position to sell these
o'clock j products on the tracks at Phoenix,
Glendale, Mesa and other valley
points. In fact two prominent pro
duce dealers have already been in the
valley and positively stated that
they would be on hand to buy the
produce here. However, the Produce
Growers' Association will not accept
any chance of it being dependent
upon selling the products of the
valley on the tracks but will provide
agencies whereby if a plan for selling
on the tracks fails, every car load
can be routed to a certain market.
The executive committee of the
association reports that already hun
dreds, of inquiries have come from
various commission and marketing
the products of the valley can
marketed next year, and has made J agencies in the east looking toward
particular efforts toward marketing j the privilege of handling the produce
the lettuce crop. The efforts of the
various elements interested in or
ganizing this association have met
with success in every quarter and its
srpporters hope that by next 'year
the farmers of the valley will be
able to command a sure and steady
market. One remarkable result of
the present" movement has been to ent.
of the valley.
Much good is expected from the
meeting to be ; held on Saturday,
which will devote particular atten
tion to the beet and lettuce situation,
and all farmers who are interested
in these products or other products
of the valley are invited to be pres-

is an original one of the theatre,
and was written especially for the
charming dancer who has the lead

in France with French players in
