Commemorating the completion of
his tenth year as secretary of the
Phoenix Chamber of Commerce, Har
ry Welch, who has been executive
head of that organization during
the most important decade in the his
tory of the Salt Rler valley, was
the guest of honor at a dinner given
at the Arizona club, Friday evening.
Among those who attended were a
large number of directors of the
chamber of commerce and friends of
the secretary.
The evening was devoted to sum
maries of the work of the chamber
during the past ten years and to de
scriptions by the various directors of
the part that has been played in that
work by Secretary Welch. The sec
retary himself outlined his views for
the future in eonneotlon with the
plans for a greater and better Phoe
nix and a progressive and efficient
chamber of commerce.
Anions; those who attended the din
ner were Harry Welch, secretary of
the chamber of commerce; Guy Al
sap. John F. Barker. Wallace But
ton, C. D. Dorris, F. H. Ensirn, Leigh
Ford. Dave Goldberg, Dwight B.

Declarinr that he had been dam
aged to the extent of $50,000 through
the publishing of an article in the
Arizona Gazette under date of April
20, 1921. Dr. Harry A. Hughes yester
day brought suit against the Gazette
Printins- company. , Dr. Hughes al
leges that he has been a resident of
the county for more than 36 years,
and has always maintained a good
name, : character and reputation
among his friends.
Under the "caption. "Law Enforce
ment President Faces Serious
Charge," Dr. Hughes alleges, the Ga
zette printed an article which he
says was meant to convey to the
public that he was guilty of a felony,
to-wit: "aiding and assisting of a
prisoner to escape from a Jail." The
article was so understood, he says,
by the readers of the article and by
the general public. The article and
the said charges and assertions so
conveyed, he alleges, hold him up and
expose him to the hatred, contempt
and ridicule of his friends and neigh
bors and the general public.
The suit was filed by J. C. Niles.

Asking- that the death sentence im
posed on Nichan Martin be commuted
to life imprisonment, the Frank
Luke, Jr., Post of the American Le
gion has appealed to Elsie Toles,
member of the board of pardon and
paroles, in behalf of the man sen
tenced to be hanged June 9.
Martin, a soldier, was convicted on
circumstantial evidence of murdering
Arthur De Steunder. mho was also
in war service, serving overseas -with
the 20th Battalion, Canadian infantry.
It is understood that the appeal
sent by the post to Miss Toles was
similar to one addressed to W. -J.
Galbraith. the attorney eeneral and
member of the pardon and parole
board. As yet no date has been set
for a mee'ting of the board, but the '
matter will be decided on the return
of Mr. Galbraith, who is out of the
city at the present time.
The case aroused considerable in
terest when the murder was discov
ered more than a year ago. Accord
ing to testimony that came out dur
ing the trial of the case, Martin and
De Steunder were traveling across
country in the latter's automobile.
They were last seen together in
Kingman and not far from there the
Canadian soldier's body was found.
An examination revealed the fact
that he had been shot in the back
with a .88-caUbre bullet which passed
through his body. It is believed that
the shooting took place in the car
and the body was dragged a dis
tance of 150 feet, where the murder
er attempted to burn 'the remains.
When Martin was arrested in Cal
ifornia some time later, he had the
automobile in his possession. Blood
spots were noted on the car, accord
ing to witnesses. The evidence
brought out the fact that the men
had quarreled over money matters.
Martin now claims he can prove hts
innocence if he can get in touch with
a party of motorists he claims to
have met in Kingman. He alleges
that the Smiths were traveling from
Colorado and that he was with them
when Steunden left. After' waiting
for days the Smiths advised him to
go. to the coast, he claims.
Although strenuous efforts have
been made on the part of the state,
it has been impossible to, get any
trace of the alleged Smiths.

Stanford doubled the fine assessed
Howell by the city court, from which
he had appealed the superior court.

serve 10 days In the city Jail and
fined him $100. Judge Stanford sen
tenced him to serve 10 days in the
city jail and raised the fine to $200.

Within the months of March and
April, 400 Mexican families have ap
plied for aid of some sort. Of these
20 per cent were persons who had
been under contract to the Arizona
Cotton Growers' association. Owing
to the lateness of the hour of their
call at the office, relief for the night
or ' for a single meal was absolutely
necessary. But these clients were
immediately turned over to the Cot
ton Growers' office and the cases
were disposed of.
Thirty per cent of these Mexican
applicants had residence in this
county varying from 1 to 40 years.
Temporary relief was given them
also until the county agent could
mahe investigation.
With the remaining 50 per cent are
the Charities most concerned. These
people have drifted in from time to
time from the mining districts, as
work became dull, or they had been
employed elsewhere In cotton of the
previous season, and had no resi
dence in this county, often not in the
state. During the winter some of
them had picked cotton, but not un
der contract. -

1. Illness of wage earner;-careless

plenty work would be unfailing.
Sudden exhaustion of funds and
unavailing search for work brought
the family to strenuous deprivation
which almost immediately became
want. In every case the man of the
family denied himself that the moth

children might have their share. In
many cases this brought about illness
of the wage earner.. -

The Stability of the
Lumber Business
In all of our relations with our customers in each one of our
yards, we endeavor to render our customers and the public gen
erally a real service in the upbuilding of the community. . We are
proud of the part that we have been privileged to take in the
building up of various cities and communities in this State, and it
is through the honesty of our purpose and the ability to "hew to
the line" that we have 'accomplished so great a success .in our
business. v
We have consistently studied the needs of our customlrs with
a view to furnishing them building materials which would render
honest service. We study the markets carefully and buy in large
quantities, obtaining the very best prices and market through our
various yards in as economical a manner as possible, thus securing
for the trade the very best prices and service.
During the war when conditions were chaotic, we stabilized
the lumber market by guaranteeing, for as long as business prud
ence would allow, the prices of the various building materials.
- By so doing we assisted in quieting those conditions which were, to
say the least, unstable. We do not make a specialty of quoting
' prices on cheap grades of lumber, although we sell all grades and
kinds, because we believe that many people are misled into believ
ing that poor grades and "culls" are sufficiently good for their .
When you have building plans that you desire to carry out bring
them to any one of our yards. An expert who understands build
ing matters will discuss your plans with you and advise you as to
the kind of materials you should use, submit you a plan if you
have none at hand, and in every way, lend you aid, in constructing
just the sort of buildings that will serve you best, at the same time
quoting you the lowest possible prices for which such construc
tion can be accomplished.
