that the correspondence would be
placed in a special file with a view
of taking the matter up at the
special session.
A lengthy letter was read from

Noted Author Coming
Zane Grey, the noted author,
has written Al Doyle to prepare
for a long trip through the Indian
country and to all points of inter
est in Northern Arizona. He ex
pects to arrive with a party of
New York people sometime in
May. Mr. Grey has been here
before and is thoroughly in love
with this section of Arizona. In
the east he is a great booster for
Flagstaff, her people and climate.
"Any criticism that the United
States forest service is not selling
all the timber that can be cut to
advantage on the reserves is with
out foundation so tar as northern
Arizona is concerned."
This statement was made today
by E. T. McGonicle, president of
the Flagstaff Lumber Manufactur
ing company. Mr. McGonigle is
here for a rest of a few days and
will return to Flagstaff the latter
part of the week.
"As much timber is being cut
on the national forest of the north
ern part of this state as is con
sistent with good administrative
Mr. McGonigle said. "Some
of the mature timber, of course,
cannot be reached. Were ade
quate transportation facilities
provided it could also be sold.
But as much as can be reached
conveniently is being sold off.
"On some of the government's
reserve forest land we have pur
chased two-thirds of the standing
timber. The remaining one-third
consists of young trees, some of
them good saw timber but not
mature. This land can be cut
over again in fifteen or twenty
"We have just closed a con
tract for some government timber
near Flagstaff. It will take us
three or four months to cut it. At
present we are cutting on private
"South of Holbrook there are
vast areas of merchantable timber.
Several years ago W. H. Clark
incorporated a company to build
a seventy five-mile railroad from
Holbrook to tap that rich timber
belt. A deal was closed with the
government for a great amount of
standing timber. The time to
begin cutting that timber expired
in December, but I understand
that if has been extended. I also
hear that the company has secured
ample financial backing and that
the work ot building the road will
begin before long. An investment
of about $3,000,000 is contem
plated. "The market for Arizona lumber
is growing. A little less than a
year ago we shipped several car
loads of our best lumber to
Boston. This shows that the
forests of New England and other
northern states are almost ex
hausted and the cast is beginning
to look to the west for its high
grade lumber. We could sell
more back east but as the dealers
there demand the best that we
can produce, in carload lots, we
do not like to fill their orders. We
reserve it for our Arizona custo
mers and ship it to them in
mixed carloads.
"During the last year the prices
of lumber have advanced notice
ably in the east. In Arizona the
advances have not been great.

South Dakota Sheriff Here
Sheriff Clark of Hot Springs,
South Dakota, arrived in Flagstaff
last week to take back a prisoner
named White who was picked up
for him by local officers a week or
so ago. White was wanted for
obtaining money under false pre
tense and had drifted down into
the grading camps from the north.
Sheriff Clark left with him Mon
day. Mr. Clark was. thoroughly
well pleased with local officers and
tfie people he met during his
short stay here.
Hon. Fred T. Colter, a member

Two Hundred of the Moat Famous
Paintings of Ancient and
Modern Times
At the Normal school hall, Fri
day evening, February 7th, will
be shown an exhibit of pictures
said by the Boston Transcript to
be "the finest collection ever
gathered together." These pic
tures are photographs in browns,
in grays, and many are in the ex
act colors of the originals. Where
ever this exhibit has been shown,
it has been received with pleasure
and enthusiasm, and those who
see it here in Flagstaff are sure
to be interested and delighted.
As half of the evening's enter
tainment, an operetta by the Nor
mal school students entitled, ' On
Plymouth Rock," will be given.
The pictures will be on exhibit
before and after the operetta. The
exhibit will also be open from one
to four on the following afternoon.
The proceeds are to be devoted to
the purchase of pictures for the
decoration of the school.
Anyone contemplating the pur
chase of good pictures for his j
home, will have a splendid chance
to choose from such a complete j
collection. He may, also, order j
any picture at catalogue price
from the committee in charge on!
the night of the exhibit.
The following notices have ap-1
peared in papers of other cities
wnere the exhibit has been shown:
