The object of the proclamation ap

of establishing a soviet.

FR O N T I E"R DAYS this year is coming to be a sort of
a dare. We dare you to do it, says one set of stay-at-homes.
We dare you not to, replies the more hopeful element.
Those who do the real work of arranging and carrying
out the wild west program, are saying nothing. They have
nothing to say. If they are given the word, they will go ahead
and do their work. But if the word is not spoken, these men
and women are powerless.
It is a shame that any" question has ever been allowed to
come up about the greatest and best wild vest sports program
ever held. If Prescott omits the celebration this year it
amounts to just this: telling five to ten thousand visitors they
needn't come. It involves the desecration of an advertising
institution' that has won this ,city more public attention than
anything else in the world.
Genoa may be in the date lines because it has a confer
ence Belfast is frequently mentioned in connection with riots.
Tokio gets its name in the paper by reason of the visit of the
Prince of Wales. But these pieces of publicity are fleeting and
evanescent. When the economic conference is over, when the
riots are quelled, when the prince has gone home', nobody will
ever feel a deep-seated urge to visit Genoa and Belfast and
Tokio because of those persons and things.
But with us it is different. Prescott, made known by its
Frontier Days, draws people here to make their homes; it
brings in capital for investment and then provides generously
the place to invest it. Who with any reason in his skull can
fail to see it?
By noon today every seat at the chamber of commerce
dinner ought to be spoken for; the diners should be prepared
in their minds the short, snappy purposeful speeches they are
going to make, and resolving that if anything whatever is ,put
