BETTER YEAR FO
(.From Friday's Daily)
Financial conditions throughout thc
county are in much better shape than
they were last year, reports County
Assessor C E. Gentry. For thc past
several weeks, thc assessor and his
deputies have been listing property
and" computing valuations of taxable
wealth in every part of thc county,
and a fairly complete survey of the
Dusiness ana nnanciai situation is
Sheep, cattle and wool arc in fine
shape, said Assessor Gentry, and there
will probably be some pretty good
offers for spring Iambs. Although
there are very few buyers in the;dis
trict at present, one or1, two spring
cattle sales have been made, and the
tendency of .the industry is to look
much better than it did last jear.
In mining, general conditions arc
showing an appreciable up - grade
trend. More production this year
than last is increasingly in evidence.
said the assessor.

FROM CAUCUSHEARS REPORTS
PHOENIX, May 10. The god
dess of harmony and Que George W.
P. Hunt were significantly absent
from the proceedings of the demo
cratic county conference which met
yesterday to elect 46 delegates to the
Tucson state convention to be held
The result of the deliberations was
a hand-picked delegation for Judgefe the dubj. delegates to the recent
R. C. Stanford for governor, but
this course was fraught with consid-
erablc dissatisfaction to those who
favored Alfred Franklin, and for
those also who think .and act in
compliance with the wishes of for
mer Governor Hunt.
Hunt was not in evidence, but
when someone tried to jam through
a resolution instructing the delega
tion to work for Stanford under the
unit rule the Hunt influence was
evidenced in a counter resolution in
structing the delegation to vote
against the endorsement of any can
didate for any office at the Tucson
meeting, as being in opposition to
the direct primary and of democratic
piinciples in general.
Aiguments became furious, and the
chair was forced to call for order
and proper decorum. Someone tried
a(ijourn) but he was howled down
cr:e, Dt TUC." and the dis-
cussion of what the delegation should
do or should not do went merrily on.
Finally it was voted to table both
resolutions. Thc outcome of the
meeting is that a practically solid
delegation of pro-Stanford dchiocrats
will . proceed to Tucson, determined
to carry off the nomination for their
fa oritc. 1

of the lounging-roorri and auditorium
of thc Red Cress i house, are the

are on thc shelves of this room, com
prising a representative selection of
popular fiction and an excellent
choice of non-fiction books.
Approximately 100 books and from
25 to 30 magazines a day are circu

For bed patients unable fo leave their
wards, there arc shelves of books
placed in every ward by thc library
service. Although started under the
American Library association, the
post library now is conducted by thc
public health service, Miss Dutcher
explained. It was taken over from
the A. L. A. last November. Among
improvements which have been re
