Judge Doe and C. C. Hutchinson
Are Elected from Coconino
County by Good Big
Coconino is one of the two
counties that stood pat last Mon
day for statehood by electing men
who would insure the drafting of
a constitution that would be ac
ceptable to the president and con
gress. But, alas, they will stand
practically alone and will have
little or no voice in the making of
that all-important document.
There was a light vote polled
in the county, probably not more
than forty percent of the total.
The campaign was closed by
rousing meetings at Williams Pri
day night and at Flagstaff Satur
day night. Each of the candidates
made pleasing addresses and stat
ed the issues as well as could be
expected in the short time allotted
them. Stanley Watson, former
editor of the Prescqtt Courier,
made an address from a demo
cratic standpoint that was forci
ble and eloquent, if not altogether
logical. Judge Doe made no
"personal campaign, owing to his
position as n federal office holder,
otherwise his majority would
doubtless have been much larger.

Metcalf and Clark, came to an ab
rupt close Monday night on ac
count of Evangelist Smith receiv
ing a telegram demanding his

intended to continue the meetings

able interest and toward the last
large crowds attended nightly.

Ox Team Novelty in Flagstaff

town Saturday and sent thrills
ouer the old time "bullwhackers"
about town. They are camped at

machinery from the east.
Most of the old timers itched to
sling a long lash around a few
times to demonstrate their ability
to move 'etu up. To many it was
an interesting sight, as they had
never seen a real long team of oxen
before. Fifteen or twenty years
ago most of the logging in this
section was done with ox teams

Initiative, Referendum and Re
call Endorsed Republicans
Elect Only Nine Dele
gates The democrats have won a de
cisive victory in the territory, the
initiative, referendum and recall
leceiving an unequivocal endorse
ment. Hope of statehood was
pitted against that doctrine in so
plain a manner- that it cannot be
misunderstood. The returns make
it apparent that republicans will
have very little to do in framing
the constitution for the new state.
Not more than nine of the 52 dele
gates in the constitutional con
vention will be republican. Two
of these will go from Coconino,
five from Pima, one from Yava
pai and one from Navajo. The
following are democratic: Cochise
10, Maricopa 9, Yavapai 5, Gila 5,
Graham 5, Yuma 3, Pinal 2, Mo
have 1, Santa Cruz 1, Apache 1.
WHY IT HAPPENED
In summing up the situation,
the Phoenix Republican makes the
"The causes of the catastrophe
were many and though the result
could not be accurately predicted,
it was feared from the beginning.
It was an uphill fight for the re
publicans from the outset and
they knew., they -had to contend
with an overwhelming popular
sentiment in favor of direct legis
lation wherever it is presented to
a community for the first time. So
many elements of people favored
the doctrine. Many good, intelli
gent citizens saw in it a means of
reform. Every demagogue favored
it and also every populist and
every agitator. Every man who
had a grievance of any character
thought he saw relief in the initia
tive, referendum and recall; every
man who wanted a job thought di
rect legislation would give it to
him, and every man who wanted
anything he did not have thought
he would find it among the debris.
"In addition to this combination
of sentiment in favor of the inno
vation there was the powerful
democratic party with its normal
majority in the territory. Against
all this there could be only reason
able argument against an innova
tion and a warning that its adop
tion would be fatal to statehood.
While the warning held some in
line, it made the democratic side
attractive to a larger element than
many think exists those who do
not want statehood.
THE MEXICAN DEFECTION
"One of the causes of the de
feat was the wholesale defection
of the Mexican vote which has al
ways been republican by tradition.
The greater part of it was cast for
the democratic candidates. It had
been expected that the labor vote
and the socialist vote would de
tract from the democratic strength.
But the labor vote was surpris
ingly small and the socialist vote
was reduced in comparison with
the showing of former years. They
had all voted for the things for
which the democrats stood. Here
was what the republicans of Mari
copa county were 'up against.'
"But that was not quite all; the
prohibitionists, caught by the
worthless bait ot the democratic
platform, the submission of the
question of statewide prohibition
along with the constitution, were
against the republican party. Curi
ously enough, the saloon keepers
were found working shoulder to
shoulder with their prohibition
friends, probably also attracted by
the same democratic plank. Confi
dent of the result of" such a sub
mission to the territory at large,
they reasoned that that would hold
the prohibitionists for a while.
' But in spite of all these handi
caps which beset the republicans,
the result on closer analysis seem
ed less disastrous than it did at
first. After all, the average demo
cratic majority was about what it
has generally been in elections for

P. L. C. Brown, a young man
who has held the position of night
ticket agent at the Santa Fe depot
at Flagstaff, for the past six weeks,

about $100 of the company's
money, the proceeds of Monday
night's ticket business, and also
several tickets, among them one
good anywhere on the main line,
which he could fill out at pleasure
for any destination on the road.
The money that accumulated from
ticket sales up till 9 o'clock Mon

bigger haul. Several checks made
out to Agent Buckbee, he did not
meddle with. He also neglected

last night in New Nexico.
Newton Lewis Dies in Alaska
Relatives have received notice
that Newton Lewis, brother of
David Lewis, of this place, died
the latter part of August at Tread
well, Alaska. For a couple of
months he had been confined in a
hospital, suffering from the effects
of frozen feet, an abscess of the
hip and a general enfeebled con
stitution. Mr. Lewis was well known in
Flagstaff and Coconino county
and made his last visit to relatives
here only a year or so ago. He
was originally from Missouri, but
for the past twenty years had been
identified as a citizen of the far
west. He was at one time a can
didate for sheriff of this county.
Miss Matilda Johnson, who has
been visiting Mrs. I. F'. Wheeler,
returned Wednesday to her home
in Phoenix. She was very favor
ably impressed with Flagstaff's
beautiful summer weather and ex
pects to return at the first oppor
tunity to enjoy more of it.
