CELEBRATION IF
Bitr Meeting Last Xight at
Empress Theater Will Be
Followed By Parade This j
Afternoon and Uallv!
Amid cheers and shouts of Viva I.-
Mexico, a two-days' celebration of the i
108th anniversary of the independenco '
of Mexico started last night at a gath- ;
ering at the Empress theater. The The- j
ater was packed, there being over l.oTii) j
present, including Governor George W. ;
P. Hunt, who delivered a stirring ad
dress in English and which was inter- i
preted for the Mexican pconle.
The celebration will be continued to
day with a parade starting at 5 o'clock,
and concluding with another program '
at the Empress theater tonight. The
celebration is being held under if.e '
auspices of la Sociedad Mexicana d. '
Beneficencio. j
Governor Speaks
In his address last night Governor
Hunt called attention to the' war in Kri-
rope and said that lie was pleased to
say that there were hundreds of Mexi
cans now fighting side by side with the
white Americans in the struggle for i
lioerty.
"It has been my pleasure." said the
governor, "to have known many of the
Mexican people since I have been gov
ernor of this state. I can say with all
sincerity that they are lovers of Justice,
are true friends and good, people. We
in Arizona are closely associated .v i 1 1 1
Mexico and are always interested in !
the sister republic to the south. And
those of her people who come to Ari- ,
zona to live have learned that these
bonds are close. My desire is to see i
peace and harmony continue between '
the two nations for it means so much !
to Arizona as well as to the Republic
of Mexico.
Doinq Their Share
"In the great war now bein? fought
for democracy the Mexican people are
doing their share. The Mexican .s a
brave man and he is a sincere man. He
Is a good worker and he is a good
soldier.
"While the Republic of Mexico U
neutral, many of her sons and many
more who have gone from Arizona are
fighting now in France for this great
cause of democracv. It is the cause oi
Mexico as well as the cause of other
nations of the world who are deter
mined to stamp out autocracy.
1 am gratified at having the pleas
ure of being with you here tonight to
do my part In celebrating witji you the
freedom of Mexico and to do honor to
the memory of General Hidalgo, the
General Washington of Mexico. In
closing. I wish to thank you one and
all, and I say that as long as. I am
governor of this state, anvone of von
who needs advise or help may com-; to
my office at any time and I will do the
best I can to assist you."
Other Speakers
The governor was applauded at al
most every period, as his address was
interpreted to the Mexican people. He
was introduced by el senor Yndaler io
Estrada, chairman of the meeting.
Among other speakers last night were
the consul of Mexico at Phoenix.
Perado. and Mateo Rodriguez. Music
was furnished by a Mexican hand, one
of the principal numbers on the musi
cal nrogram being the National hymn
ot Mexico. The Senoritas Enriciueia
Polanco and Adelina Mendivil giv
readings and poems upon the" patriot
Hidalgo. - .
The independence of Mexico and the
struggles leading up to it were re
viewed by all the speakers in Spanish.
With a handful of men it was shown
where Hidalgo succeeded in finally en
listing great forces against the Spanish
viceroys. The struggle to be free from
monarchial rule was described as one
that did not last for only a day or a
week, but that it took years; that the
people, like the people of the American
states, had grown , tired of the kings
and wished to govern themselves.
Theater is Crowded
Many were the "vivas" during the
reviews of the struggle for indepen
dence. Empress theater had never iie
fore witnessed such applause. Refer
ence was frequently made to the
United States and many were the com
pliments bestowed upon the great re
public to the north.
Because of the numbers who have
come from Mexito recently to work in
the cotton fields, there was more of
the "old country" Mexico seen at the
celebration last night than ever seer, in
such celebrations in the past. On ac
count of the strangers there was a ten
dency among the speakers to bring in
to all that was said a sense of harmony
and fellowship as existing between the
two nations and the sincere hope that
nothing would ever arise between the
two that would cause ill feeling or
trouble.
Parade This Afternoon
The parade will start at 5 o'clock this
afternoon from the Empress theater
and move west to Third avenue, north
to the Mexican consulate at 359 North
Third avenue, thence south to Van
Buren, west to Seventh avenue, south
to Washington. West on Washingto i to
the capitol. returning east on Wash
ington street to Seventh avenue,
thence north to Adams, east on Ad.in s
to the Empress theater where there
will be a band concert at 8:30 o'clock.
The regular evening celebration, eon-,
sisting of addresses and music, will be-'
gin at 9:30 o'clock.

Following an altcrcaita over the
losing of a pasture gate, in which
John Doe Sadler . received a violent
fist blow in the face, R. A. Harer lajt
night caused to be issued by Judge
Charles D. Wheeler a warrant for the
arrest of Sadler charging assault with
a deadly weapon.
In his statement to 'Judge Wheeler,
Harer said that after the fist fight
Sadler walked away about forty feet
and. turning, tired two shots at him.
The trouble occured on the Indian road
about three miles from town. Sadler
was arrested by Deputy Ed Warren,
and immediately upon reaching the
sheriff's office furnished a $500 cash
bond for his appearance before Judge
Wheeler Tuesday morning.
County Jailer Ed Ruppert has found
an honest man. In fact, he is little
more than a boy, being not 21 years old.
However, the jailer received a call
yesterday from Jesse H. Comer, em
ployed by tne Southwest Cotton com
pany at Avondale.
He handed Ruppert a pocketbook,
which when opened was found to con
tain $5 in currency. Inside were cards
indicating the pocketbook is the prop
erty of" E. L. Hopkins. Roscoe, Texas.
Hopkins was formerly a deputy sher
iff. Ruppert said the owner may have
the pocketbook and contents by calling
at the sheriff's office and writing a note
of thanks to the boy.

far the best woman diver and swimmer

worth the price asked at the gale.
The dance program was supplied by
the "Sunny" Jazz orchestra, and at no
time until past midnight were there
seats or tables enough to take care of
those who wanted to dance. The Fowl

!Col.Ei.lamson
has received the following letter:
WAR DEPARTMENT
Office of the Chief of
Ordnance
451 Penn. Ave, Washington, D. C,
Sept. 6, 1318
Sir:
1. As head of Lamson, Business Col
lege you are in a position to render
great service to the Government by en
couraging your students to qualify for
positions in Washington. This means
the taking of Civil Service test, but,
as you can see by the enclosed an
nouncement, the examination for sten
ographer and typewriter is not difficult
and the various supplemental registers
established make it possible for com
parative novices, who are capable, to
secure appointments.
2. The War has created a need for
tin enormous army of stenographers
and typists, upon which depends in
large measure the success of the fight
ing army. The "typewriter" army at
this time is not sufficient to meet the
demands and this situation must be
remedied immediately if our fighting
army is not to suffer.
3. You have doubtless received ap
peals similar to this from other govern
ment departments and that fact should
increase rather than diminish the im
portance of this one. for. as the need
becomes greater, efforts to meet that
need must be redoubled. It is earnestly
requested that you use forceful method,,
in bringing this matter to the attention
of your students and graduates. It
should be put before them, not as a
business proposition, nor as an adven
ture, nor as an educational opportunity
(altho it may be all of these), but as
a matter of patriotism and humanity.
Trie sooner our troops are properly
equipped and sent abroad, the sooner
will the war be over and the fewer will
be the lives sacrificed.
4. Living conditions and expenses in
Washington are of course far from nor
mal, but there is no question that any
one who comes in the right spirit,
namely, that of "doing his bit," and
who is willing to economize and tolerats
comparatively trifling inconveniences,
will find the salary provided by the
Government adequate. Large dormi
tories are now being built. They will
be finished in a few months and will
provide reasonable and attractive liv
ing accommodations. Until these dor
mitories are completed, the Room Reg
istration Office, which has been estab
