MRS. SD30NE BARON
. INCREASES TROUBLES
i OF JOHNNY PROCTOR
' Bootlegging matters came to the
front again the first of the week
when Sheriff Harrington returned
from Jerome Junction with Mrs. Si
Jjono Baron, or Mrs. Tiburcia Lopez,
as she says her name is.
Mrs. Baron had paid $200 of a $450
fine recently imposed on her by Police
Justice Gilliland. Then she flew the
coop. She went to' Jerome, and tho
sheriff was on his way there after
her when'he met her at Jarome Junc
tion, just boarding the train for L'os
Angeles.
1 She was wanted also as a witness
against Johnny Proctor, alleged whis
key importer. She alleges in her con
fession that Proctor had given her
$200 to skip.
This rather explpdes the theory that
Proctor is a "smooth guy," as he
poses and as it was generally believed
that he was, for it probably -would
have cost him les3 had he stood trial
and plead guilty at first.
''i Proctor was brought before Police
.Tnctirn Oillllnnri Tiinsrlftv and sen
tenced to spend 60 days in jail and!
pay ?Z0O.
Particio D. Guerra pleaded guilty
to complicity with Proctor and was
fined $75 and 60 days. He paid, and
Sll sentence was suspended. Then
th were turned over to the -county
for prosecution by the state, though
Guerra will, probably be held as a
witness only.
Mrs. Baron will also have to stand
prosecution by the state.
, Guerra, it is said, has made two or
three trips in here with booze.
With the numerous fines and the
time spent in jail as a result of his
latest bootlegging, Proctor will prob
ably be discouraged enough when he
finally does get away to stay away so
far that Chief Neill won't be able to
reach him even with a postal card.
It has already cost him about $500 in
hard cash.
Mrs. Seboni Baron was released by
T.,x:., T T VAi Wonnclnir nn SiOftx

ANTELOPE'S "BOOS"
SCATTERED SHEEP SO
BASCO SHOT HIM
Gabriel Basco, sheep herder for
Luther Hart, down near Winslow, was
brought in yesterday by Deputy Sher
iff John Garrett and arraigned before
Justice of iho Peace Kidd for shooting
an antelope.
Basco, loquacious, rofused to have
a lawyer. Then he told the judge all
about it.
One of the other, herders had shot
a Jbear. Basco, afraid of bears, bor
rowed a gun. The other night his
sweet sleep was interrupted by an aw
ful racket. '
"Some ting big he go troo dose
sheep an he. say, 'Bool' He do dat
tree time. Me 'fraid he eat me. Me
shoot."
Basco skinned the antelope and took
the hide and head to camp. The meat
he explained, "Me cut up in leetle
pieces for cows to eat."
Justice Kidd fined him $100 and
gave him six months in jail, suspend
ing the jail sentence on his promise,
made with tears of joy sliding down
his fact, that he would shoot no more
antelope, but would tell on anyone
else who did.
Sheriff Harrington says there are a
lot of antelope being killed in that
section.
THEIR CONFIDENCE
IN US IS'VIOLATED
On Friday night, Mr. and Mrs. A,
F. Elfers, of Bovina, Tex., on tFeir
way back from Los Angeles, left their
car and equipment standing near the
circus tent while they went inside to
see
tho performance, When they
came out two
of their grips were
gone.
Chief of Police Neill and Policeman
Jim Byrum began a vigorous hunt
for the grips and the thief. They
rounded, up half a dozen Mexicans,
one of whom the chief believes was
the right man, but whm he had to
let go for lack of evidence.
On Monday, the little son of the
Santa Fc watchman at the, stock
tower found -the grips in a pile of dirt.
Some hens had uncovered them. Mr.
Elfers extra suit of clothes and razor
j and most of his wife's clothing had
i been stolen from the grips; but $600
worth of mining androHrBtocks in one
of the grips had not been touched.
, bach and Edwaiil R. Hickerson, of the
( u, g. Coast and Geodetic Survey, they
started out on the hike to the top of
the highest peas of the ban Francisco
group. They reached Mr. Hickerson's
camp at timber line late in the after
noon and made camp for the night.
Early Monday morning they made
the climb through the clouds to the
top where, after the sun had dispelled
the mTst, they had a. magnificent view
of all Northern Arizona. Mr Hicker-
they started back not soon enough,
however, to escape the heavy electri

FLAGSTAFF, ARIZONA,
A. J. CURTIS, ARRESTED FOR
STEALING, BREAKS JAIL, SKIPS
A. J. Curtis,"the man who recently
came here from Detroit and bought
out J. W. Francis' Northern Arizona
Motor Co. automobile business, and
then, unable to pay for it, let it go
back to Mr. Francis, was, arrested in
Ash Fork on Wednesday afternoon
charged with breaking into a .garage
the night before and stealing two'Fisk
cord tires and a lot of tools. That
same evening he broke. jail, leaving
behind him. his Studebaker car and
$250 in cash, and is still at large.
Curtis came here with his wife. He
boosted himself and his kindly inten
tions toward this provincial little town
in eloquent terms. He tola about his
wealth, about $40,000 worth of dia
monds he had in Chicago, and. inci
dentally seems to have revealed to a
few friends the fact that CurtiS was
not his real name.
His wife left in a few days.
Since Curtis relinquished "his busi
ness to Mr. Francis he had seemed
to be very nervous: Many of those
who knew him believed that he feared
the consequences of something- that
had happened before he came here.-
Curtis drove away early Wednesday
morning. About 10 a. m. he tele
phoned to Fletcher Fairchfld that he
had broken a spindle .five miles be
yond Williams, and asked Fletcher to
go to Mr. Francis' garage and get
one, but not .to tell Mr. Francis who
it was for. Fletcher did so, and, tak
ing Claude, Black with him, met Cur
tis half-way. between .here and Wil
liams, coming this way in another, car'
he had caught a ride in. He told
Fletcher he had forgotten bearing3

duties by installing a shower bath and

the rooms almost every night, some
nights more than othef nights; arid
it is planned to have an occasional big
blowout at the theater.

M. A. MURPHY HOME AGAIN
County Treasurer M. A. Murphy,
who left here about four weeks ago
to attend the Knights of Columbus'
national convention at Buffalo, N. Y.,
got-back Monday night, enthusiastic
over the splendid trip he had. In
Chicago, he , met Earl Slipher and
bride. With his wife's sister and her
husband he toured the riot zone, then
under military rule. At Buffalo he
went Up against the strike of the hotel
employees.
He visited friends and relatives in
Pittsfield, Mass.; went by auto from
there to Boston, thence most of the
way by auto from there to Old Or
chard, Me., passing Carnegie's home
in the Berkshires the day the latter
died; then Jo Portland, and back thru
New York, Washington, Dayton and
St. Louis.
In New York he spent two. days
with an old friend who, was vice consul
to Germany when the war broke out
and who left Germany after Ambas
sador Gerard did.
Mr. Murphy says he never saw so
many people, traveling as now, and
that all trains and hotels are fullj the
rates in the latter having been Ky
advanced in the last year or so. The.
only hot day he struck in the entire
trip was a week ago Monday, in Wash
ington, D. C.
PHILLIPS GOES TO JEROME
J. G. Phillips, who has been' with

had left his switch on and his battery
had run down. The spindle fixed,
Curtis, birought the two stolen tires
which he had hid in the w&ds put'
them into his car, and Fletcher towed
him to Ash Fork.
In the meantime, shortly after noon,
Mr. Francis discovered that a. window
had been broken and that the tires
and several tools belonging, to Claude
Mitchell and Bob Mack, who run the
shop, end of the garage, were missing.
He got out a warrant, the numbers
of the tires were phoned to surround
ing officers,, word of the robbery get
ting to . Ash Fork just five minutes
before the two cars pulled in. Deputy
Sheriff Jerrie Wilson was waiting for
them. He was very busy sizing up
Fletcher's car, when Curtis grabbed
his coat and ran,
"For the first fifty yards," Wilson
says, "he' was the runningest man I
ever saw." But Wilson was too fast
for him and. caught him.
Curtis had notnlngto say. He was
searched and then locked up in Ash
Fork's jaiL,
Undersheriff Wm. Hicklin left Flag
staff at once to bring him back, but in
the meantime Curtis broke, jail. Wil
son believes that he had assistance
from the outside, as there was a mys
terious stranger who seemed to be
very much interested in him right
after he was locked up.
Hicklin is still (after Curtis, and
says he's going to get him.
STRUCK FOR BETTER
FOOD-ANDNEW COOK
The men jn the. Saginaw & Manis
tee's Lumber Co. Camp No.' 14, at
Bellemont, struck Saturday, and it is
said that very few of, them have re
turned to work. '
It was not a question of hours or
wages, according to one of fiie strik
ers, J. E. H. Allen, who tells the story
in this way:
"On the preceding Tuesday the men
all signed a' petition asking for a new
cook and better food. The next morn
ing they 'were informed by Mr. Sea
man, th,e superintendent, through the
foreman, that another cook was com
ing. They asked that one of. them
selves be allowed to do the cooking
until the new cook arrived.. This was
granted.
"Everything was all right until on
Saturday, .when Chas. Moore, a driver,
the man who had presented the peti
tion, was fired. Then all the able
bodied men, numbering about fifty,
quit. They got their time, some com
ing to Flagstaff and some others go-,
ing to Williams.
"Moore went to Williams, and was
there pointed out to the deputy sheriff
by Superintendent Seaman, who then
charged him with being an I. W. W.
and an anarchist. He was taken be
fore the justice of the jeace, who re
fused to hold him." ,
Mr. Allen states that at camp No.
15 there is no complaint, as the food
there is abundant and well cooked.
HYMEN IS VERY .BUSY
Flagstaff is getting to be a regular
matrimonial mart. In addition to two
marriages this week, reported else

OFF WITH OLD WIFE;
ON WITH THE NEW;
ALL IN ONE DAY
J
R. J. Monaghan, a young man from
Williams, set a record, as far as this
county is eonccrned, here Tuesday,
when he got a divorce from one wife
in the morning and married another
in the afternoon.
The wife he eliminated from future
consideration on tho ground of deser
tion, was Mrs. Jessie Monaghan. The
new wife was Miss Elizabeth Silver
stone of Los Angeles, whose good
looks were so marked that probably
Monaghan's regret at losing his first
wife was somewhat alleviated.
Judge J. E. Jones untied the first
knot, and Justice R. J. Kidd tied the
second, in the presence of Miss Louise
Greenlaw and Frank Harrison.
ABOUT BUYING OF
BRIGHT ANGEL TRAIL
W. H, Peters, national park super
visor, was in from Grand Canyon on
Tuesday and had a conference with
the county board of supervisors re
garding the purchase by the govern
ment of the. Bright Angel trail.,
It is believed that this matter,
which has been on the carpet for some
time now, is about to. come. .to. a head.
The price the" county is asking, for
the trail is $150,000. During the last
15 years, not counting the year of
the world's fair atFrisco, the aver
age annual revenue of the county
from the trail has been $3,000. This
is increasing each year.
, Mr. Peters is much interested in the
proposed new road from Maine to the
canyon,- .described elsewhere, in this
issue, and believes that the govern
ment may be induced to do something
toward building it.

SCRATCHED NAME OFF
CERTIFICATE; DIVORCED
Justice Button, of, Williams, had a
case to decide last week that called
for the' exercise of his deepest legal
acumen. Even then, he' felt it best to
be fortified by more expert judgment, j
so he called Up Assistant uounty At
torney Geo. W. Harben.
A Mexican had been married for;
about two years to an Indian squaw.
He' had grown tired of her, so he
took their wedding certificate and
scratched her- name off with a knife.
Then he calmly informed her that she
had no .further claim on him.
Button, sure after his p"hone talk
with Harben that he "was right and
could go ahead, informed .the; com
plaining squaw that her hubby would
haye, to. keep right on furnishing her
with grub .and, duds... .,

WESTERN UNION REPEATERS
WILL NOT GO TO WINSLOW
The Western Union improvement at
Winslow probably will not beso ex-j
tensive as at nrst announced, mere,
will be an uptown telegraph, office,,
but it is unlikely that the repeaters
will be moved there from this office.,
This is good news for Flagstaff if
it turns out to be correct, and it very j
UKeiy is. xne reason ior me cnange
in plans is not known, but it may be
that it is felt by the Western Union
officials that a railroad division point
is not the best place' for the location
of a central wire plant' in case labor
disturbances should arise.
SWINNERTONS TO GRANDVIEW
Artist Jimmy Swinnerton, who is
not only famous for his cartoons but
also as a great booster wherever he
is, left Wednesday for Grandview
with his family, being convoyed by
Bill Conly in his grey auto owned by
White. Artist Swinnerton has in
structions from William Randolph
Hearst, owner of the Grandview prop
erty, to take oyer the hull carte
blanche, cave canem and carpe diem,
whatever them, words be. He says he
hopes that everything will be fin dc

GEO. BABBITT LAND .
TO BE SOLD FOR
RESIDENCE LOTS
The George Babbitt land in the
north end of town, off Leroux and
Beaver streets, has been subdivided
into building lots, and will be offered
for' sale at once. Extensive concrete
sidewalk building will be a part of
this new development plan.
This will be good news to our peo
ple, for it presages building boom in
Flagstaff, that will mean much in its
development.
ihe sale will be conducted, by the
G. C. Hall real estate agency, of Hol
brook. Mr. Hall is well known here
through his former association with
the late Judge E. M. Doe. He is in
the city now, arranging the prelimi
naries, and will leave Capt. Hearne in
charge of the sale.
Capt. Hearne is also known here:
He was an ace with the Royal Flying
Corps of the Canadian crray.-and was
sent here by the government, to make
three speeches during the Victory loan '
campaign. Since, then he has been at
Phoenix, in charge of the war camp
community service in the Phoenix
district.
Undoubtedly manjfpeople-will avail
themselves of the opportunity to get
these home sites. This is but the be
ginning, it is believed by shrewd men
whb have watched recent develop
ments, and there is other- equally in
teresting news a-brewing.
The recent launching by' The Sun
of its home-building anil home-owning
propaganda has contributed very
greatly toward a general revival in
building; and it is .not drawing too
much on the, imagination, in the light
of recent developments and consider
ing the projects of which we are ad
vised but of which it is too early to
say anything just yet,' to prophesy;
that before this boom has ended we
will have taken on a new life, a new
prosperity, and a much' bigger girth
and population.
Now, if -ever, is the time to build
or buy homes in Flagstaff. Prices of
materials will not be lower for (years,
according to experts. and the chances
are that lots will also increase in
price before many months "haye.

BABES IN THE WOOD
There were some anxious persons
in town Monday nisrht when Countv
Engineer J. B. Wright, County Clerk
Tom Rees, and Mr. Wright's brother-
in-law, L.. K. iiorden, who had gone -out
that morning to look over the pro
posed new road from Maine to Grand
Canyon, failed to show back here in
town as per schedule.
But they got in the next night, ex-"
plaining that in the heavy storm at
Red Butte on Monday they were un
able to track the car ahead and so
were unable to locate the engineers'
camp they were ajming for, finally
deciding to go on to Grand Canyon1
to spend' the night They took out
Lieut. "Norland, of the county engi
neering force, and left him at the
camp in charge of the road survey.

the lattcr's little son, will leave for
