' -V, ; ?$ A GRAND OPPORTUNITY i i S COMING 4 ;X)ne Hundred Studebaker Cars and a Correspond- l ing Number of People Coming Next 'I Saturday, June 8th : ' The Studebaker Manufacturing Company are planning a big dem onstration for Northern Arizona. During the coming week it is sta ted that a hundred automobiles manufactured by this company, "will leave Phoenix, headed north, 'with about four or five hundred passengers. The plan of the big excursion is to visit the towns along the northern part of the state, including a trip to famous Grand Canyon. The excursion will visit Flagstaff on Saturday and Sunday, June 8 and 9, re-; maining in the city Saturday and ' Sunday nights of next week. Accompanying this party are. two Associated Press correspond-, ents or representatives, whose' business it will be to write-up and report, the trip for the benefit of the press association. The official photographer of the Stu-1 debaker company is with them, and will make views and pictures of all the important things on the trip, including the scenic and his toric places. The pictures will be shown and distributed all over the world. That means much for Northern Arizona. This great trip of automobiles and sight seers has for its main purpose the advertising of the autos made by this company, and at the same time advertise the country through which they pass. It is the pur pose of the company to issue a booklet of the trip, containing a graphic description of the coun try, and which will contain also the fine half-tone pictures taken by the photographer. This of curse will include the scenes en route, the towns, the places of interest, the Grand Canyon, the Cliff Dwellings, Sunset mountain, the Painted Desert, and in fact it will be scenic Arizona in picture form. A million copies of the booklets will be printed, and they will be distributed all over the world. It is evident at once that this sort 'of a proposition will ad vertise Northern Arizona in a manner that is practically inesti mable, and the results of which cannot be measured in anything ANOTHER NEW BLOCITX FtfB FLAGSTAFF Fred Hensing broke ground this week foF the largest and finest store in Northern Arizona. The plans call for 180 feet of plate glass, 46 feet on Front street, and 134 feet to Leroux street to alley. The entire front will be sandstone, trimmed with pebble dash panels. The ar rangements of the interior will be modern and several new depart ments added. The firm is known locally as Aubineau Bros., and under the able management of Mr. Hensing has forged steadily to the front. The grocery depart ment is under the management of Mr. Marion Aubineau, whose gentlemanly treatment of his patrons need not be commented on here. The wholesale and shipping department is in charge of Geo. C. Rickel. The steadv increase of this business demands more room. Mr. Hensing requests us to ask the patience of trjeir loilg list of customers while' the remodeling goes on. W like an accurate degree. But what a wonderful opportunity this will, afford us to get before the world as a scenic, progressive and opportunity affording section. We should be alert to the opportunity of the movement and use every endeavor at our command to in fuse the visitors with the wonder ful resources of this section, the unexcelled roads and the climate that cannot be excelled. The Good Roads Association has been and is very much interested in the matter. The members have held a number of enthusiastic meetings and have appointed com mittees to make such arrange ments as are necessary for. the comfort of the visitors. Already over $500 have been raised for the purpose of showing the visitors a good time. On Saturday evening a big meet ing has been planned at the opera house, where the visitors will be invited to participate and enjoy a good time. Music, speech-making, etc., will be some of the features. On Sunday the autoists will go out to the Cliff Dwellers ruins, where they will enjoy an elaborate luncheon tendered them by the good roads association, after which they will return to Flagstaff. A good program for the two days will be arranged. A splendid folder with a fine photograph of the Peaks will be given to each of the visitors as a souvenir. The city will do its 'part in caring for the visitors and special watchmen and police will guard the autos and see that no harm befalls the machines. Every available room will be secured for the accommodation of the visitors, and the hospitality shown them while here will leave an impression that will resolve itself into the establishment of a northern auto high line that will accommodate all who desires to go through the best section of all the west. Let everybody in town get on his booster behavior and make Saturday and Sunday next gala days for visitor and citizen. This is The Dope A Chicago dispatch yesterday says: Representatives of the western railroads, state land com missioners and reclamation agents summoned by F. H. Newell, director of the reclamation service will meet here tomorrow to con sider the blue sky land invest ments. It is said the federal gov ernment is considering suppress ing the movement by eliminating the fake land companies, and building up the west by stopping the emigration of 100,000 families annually to Canada. Decoration Day Services Decoration day was very ap propriately observed yesterday. The store houses closed at an early hour. The regular program was carried out in a very satis factory manner. The band was out, and the occassion Was solemn and impressive. The entire pro gram was good, and Judge Edward M. Doe deliiered a very fine ad' dress at the Emerson school hall. Old glory floated at half-mast, and flowers were placed on little mounds of dust beneath which are many heroes, precious loved ones nnd friends. Our country bowed its head in silent reverence to the' devine plan, and in honor of its dead. REPORTS OF COMMITTEES OFJHEJRAND JURY Flagstaff, Ariz. May 21, 1912. We the undersigned committee duly appointed by Mr. T. E. Pollock, foreman of the grand jury of the superior court of Coco nino county, State of Arizona, which is now in session, and in pursuance to instructions given by said foreman of the grand jury, we hereby report that we have visited the offices of the county recorder, board cf supervisors and county treasurer for the purpose of looking over their offices as to the general condition of each, and find that such records kept and maintained in each of the above mentioned offices and the general appearances were very satisfac tory, and also the clerical work pertaining to each, would indicate that it' was performed in a careful and efficient manner. Respectfully submitted by, W. F. Griffin, F. L. Dickinson, Elmek G. Carroll. The committee of the grand jury appointed to examine the county jail, court house and hos pital, find the hospital in a clean and efficient state and the inmates well cared for. We earnestly recommend that steps be taken by the presept board of supervisors to at once make plans to enlarge the county prison, for the need reasons that the present jail is not large enough, the sanitary conditions are very poor, nor is there any place or privacy for female pris oners or witnesses held for court. A heating plant for the court house and jail would be an economy and comfort. We further recommend that steps be built going down from corridor to cages in the north apartment and that the jail be calsomined in all apartments and finally we recommend that term prisoners be employed on public roads and streets of the county.

The board of Supervisors of Yavapai county has decided to make a survey of that part of the proposed King-man-Prescott road that will cross the Yavapai line, and which is believed will connect up Seligman as the first town in this country to be reached. This action will be taken as soon as practical work is inauguiated out of Kingman to connect this inter-connty highway, and coincident with this announce ment, E. S. Clark, who is and has been taking a zealous interest in the building of the new highway stated, before leaving for the north a few days ago, that a sum suffi cient to make repairs on the old road leading out of Seligman to this city had been subscribed by different individuals. After leaving Seligman for this city, it had not been definitely de cided on which route would be followed, down Big Chino valley to connect with the road to Ash Fork, or to divert and pass into Williamson valley, where a splen did highway is available. The question of bringing the two cities into closer relation than ever be fore through the avenue of good roads is an event, being seriously considered, and that the plans will be crystalized into practical work being authorized and carried out, is assured for the near future. DELEGATES TO STATE Persuant to call the Coconino County Republican Central com mittee met in the court house, in the precinct of Flagstaff to select four delegates to the state con vention to be held in Tucson on June third.

Cameron were nominated and elected. De legate Gilliland offered a name in substitution of one of the names presented which action was over ruled by the chairman, on the grounds that a candidate nomin ated, cannot be substituted or withdrawn without the expressed wish of the nominator, the state ment was made by the chair that further names of delegates to re present any of the precincts could be offered and would be balloted upon. The four gentlemen being duly elected by ballot, there being no further business the meeting adjourned subject to the call of the chairman. B. A.

',. -., It is the desire of the city au thorities that everyone get busy on "his premises and clean' up same on or before that time.' The town needs cleaning up the visitors are coming and the impression that we make with them will do us much good if that impression is good, and vice versa. The city has ordered the street commissioner to haul away the rubbish and trash from the alleys where the people have no mpans of doinjf so, and the city marshal has bqen instructed to en-., force the ordinance relativj? to the the sanitary conditions when' peo ple will not voluntarily clean up their premises. Civic and sanitary pride alone should prompt us to clean up! This campaign now will lessen, tne fly invasion to a marked de gree and save much possibility of sickness.
