There was quite a delegation of
prominent Williams people here
last Friday as witnesses in the
Hunter Brothers case charged
with having slaughtered cattle not
belonging to them. When the
case came up in Judge Harring
ton's court it was found that the
law made it a felony instead ot a
misdemeanor consequently the
case will have to be started over
again. Attorney Geo. Harben is
defending the young men. Among
those present as witnesses were:
A. F. Poison. Ben Sweetwood,
Maurice Smith, R. T. Brown, Bob
Postle, George Patton and Gus
Bought Whiskey for Indians
Captain Price, U. S. Deputy
Marshal came in from Grand Can
yon Tuesday morning with a
young man named John Dotria,
charged with having purchased
whiskey for an Indian. Dotira
was given a hearing before U. S.
Commissioner R. J. Kidd and re
leased on bond.
Dotira is a foreigner who has
been in the country but a short
time and when an Indian dressed
in white folks' clothes asked him
to buy whiskey for him, he did it
not knowing that Uncle Sam
would be peevish and annoyed at

His friends feel much the same
way about it.

J. M. Shepperd, Prop.
His Case Gone to Higher Court
Supai Charlie, the old Indian
who was arrested in the Seligman
country for killing a calf, died at
the county hospital Saturday
afternoon of ppeumonia and heart
trouble. His squaw came in Sat
urday night to see him, not know
ing he had been sick and it was
difficult to inform her that her
husband was'dead as no one pres
ent could talk her language.
At Supai's preliminary, hearing
in Williams tie was given seven
"sleeps" to go out to the Indian
reservation and secure witnesses.
Promptly at the hour of his trial
he returned with his witness ready
to go to trial. It is supposed on
his long ride he caught cold which
resulted in pneumonia.
Big Day For St. Patrick
On next Tuesday evening, St.
Patrick's Day, and entertainment
followed by a dance is to be given
under the auspices of the local
council of the Knights of Colum
bus at the Majestic theatre. For
the entertainment, the entire house
has been reserved, and judging
from the way the seats are being
taken, a full house is assured.
The tickets are on sale at Marlar's
Drug Co., and will be there until
6:00 p. m., of the evening of the
entertainment, after w lich time
the seats not yet taken will be
placed on sale at the theater.
The dance will take place im
mediately after the entertainment.
Those who appreciate an up todate
musical entertainment together
with a dance to music furnished
by the splendid Majestic Orches
tra should not miss this opportu
nity on March 17. The entertain
ment will commence at 8:00 p. m.
Litter in the Street 1
A few careless and heedless
persons have made a practice of
throwing old bottles and glass in
the roads and streets, not only
causing a bad litter but that which
helps materially in ruining auto
tires. If it was for no other
reason than appearances the prac
tice should be stopped.
Conditions are none to good at
best and any little piece of rubbish
you fail to put into tne street
helps that much. A few garbage
cans would look ornamental.
TWO MEN iLEiT"
BY LIMITED TRAIN
Two men were killed yesterday
by No. 4 about two miles this side

HOE FOR GRAND CANTON
Electric Railroad From Grand View to Flagstaff
Part of Hearst's Big Scheme
Work to Start Soon
Speculation over what disposition William Randolph
Hearst will make of his Grand View purchase, was settled by
Manager Boswick of the Los Angeles Examiner, who was re
turning west over the Santa Fe after a consultation in New
York City with Mr. Hearst.
Boswick stated that the plans were being drawn for three
distinct propositions, which included, first, a palatial residence
for the owner, a resort hotel to accommodate a large number of
tourists and the building of an electric railway from Flagstaff
to the rim of the Grand Canyon with the terminus at Grand
View. There was to be no connection with the railroad run
ning from Williams to El Tovar and the project of Mr. Hearst
was to be, in short, a purely individual and independent one,
so far as other interests were to be considered in an interlock
As to when the railroad will begin building or from what
source the power is to be drawn were facts not given publicity,
but it is believed the immense undertaking will be practically
initiated not later than June or July of the present year.
Speaking of reports in circulation and published through
out the country that Mr. Hearst was to make Arizona his home,
to gain recognition as an aspirant for future senatorial honors
from this State, Mr. Boswick stated that such an impression
was without any foundation whatever, and should be dispelled
as a political forecast of the future.
Mr. Hearst is to make New.York City his base of operations , J
but will be a frequent visitor to Grand View, where he will main-
I tain a home and entertain his

Normal School News
The Agricultural Department of
the Normal school has just issued
a bulletin entitled "Agriculture in
Vicinity of Flagstaff, Arizona."
As the title suggests, the pamph
let treats in a general way of agri
cultural conditions in this vicinity
with suggestions for their im
provement. Many business men
are sending copies of the bulletin
to out of town friends so they
may see what this corner of Ari
zona is doing in the way of farm
ing. A copy may be had by ad
dressing the Agricultural Depart
ment or by seeing Mr. Willis E.
Berg, in charge of agricultural
work at the Normal.
Miss Reta Russell is back at
her duties again, after a few days
illness. .She is enjoying a visit
from her mother: Mrs. J. Frank
Russell of Modesto, California.
Mrs. Russell intends to return to
California in a couple of weeks.
Some of the students in geom
etery expressed themselves the
other day as enjoying that subject.
It is very unusual to find a whole
class liking any study in mathe
matics, so an inquiry in this case
demonstrated that it is' due to the
way the subject is taught, Mr.
Edward F. Honn, in charge of
mathematics, believes that the
science of numbers and geometri
cal principles can be made pleas
urable and interesting as well as
useful, and has worked long striv
ing to make his teaching conform
to his ideals in that respect. As
usual, mathematics is one of the
strong courses planned for the
coming summer school.
Considerable excitement was
created last Monday after school
by the two basket ball games.
Mr. Rosenberry and Mr. Honn
each choose a girl's and boy's
team at general exercises Monday
morning. These teams played
one anotner inai evening, me
games were fast but far from
being as good as those the teams
might have played, if they had
been In practice. The boys game
was the closest. At the end of
the first half Honn's boys were
one point ahead, and the same was
true of the final score which
stands 6 to 7. Mr. Rosenberry's
girl's team evened things up how
ever, they were too fast for their
opponents. The final score stands
7 to 2.
The girls played ten rninute
halves, while the boys played first
twelve then fifteen minutes. The
teams played alternately thus ob
taining longer rests which was
much needed because of fast play
and no training.
Mr. Rosenberry refereed the boy's
game and Mr. Honn the girls.

Superior Court Proceeding
Esteban Salozar and Elisceo
Irias two young men who raised a
Santa Fe check from $1.90 to
$11.90, and who plead guilty to
the charge, after being arrested at
Winslow, were released from cus
tody under probation, sentence
having been suspended by Judge
Perkins during good behavior.
The boys fail to get the check
cashed and as Salozar has a wife
and small brother depending on
him for support, and the railroad
company being willing to give
both boys work on the Flagstaff
section, sentence was suspended.

BIG FEES TURNED
IN BY COMMISSONER
During the month, of February,
the shortest in the year, the Ari
zona Corporation Commission has
collected and turned into the gen
eral .fund of Arizona the sum of
$31,030.51, or $1, 475.25 for each
of the twenty-one working days in
Compared with the fees col
lected in February, 1913, the in
crease in the amount of work done
by the Commission becomes at
once apparent. In February of
last year the Commission collec
ted from all sources the sum of
J4.958.29, or $234.20 for each of
the twenty-one working days.
Taken from another angle, the
past month's fees become impor
tant for the reason that the Com
mission collected $6,030.51 more
than the total appropriation of
$25,000 made by the last State
Legislature for the payment of the
annual expenses of the Commis
sion. Should the collection for one
year continue as great as during
February, the collections would
amount to $404,695.15.
