The Morenci base ball team started
.on Sunday morning for Lordsburg to
play ball. Arriving at Guthrie, they
tound that the Arizona and New Mex
ico Railroad was out of commission on
account of the wreck between Guthrie,
and Clifton, so they started back home,
and when they bad got "ust past Bunk
ers on the cork screw line they got off
the tracK and walked in, the boys say
from the apparently bard luck, they
have come out well in one way, as the
exercise in walking home will be good
for them, and keep them in better
trim for the next battle on the dia
mond. Our accomodating and loquacious
shoe clerk, R. Crittenden, made an
easy get away to El Paso on his va
cation two weeks ago. His trip to
El Paso was pleasant and interesting
which can hardly be said of his re
turn. Landing in Hachita he was
compelled to spend four hours seeing
the sights of the city. On arriving
at Guthrie his accomodation train
again gave him ample time to make
several social calls, consuming sev
eral hours. Two miles above Guthrie
his train jumped the track, and since
Arizona is not known to have modern
aeroplanes, "Crit" took to nature's
provision for such emergencies, and
counted ties to Morenci. He regis
tered home at three bells.
Dr. Tuthill gave one of his instruc
tive lectures on "First Aid to the In
jured" Friday evening at the Club.
Last winter Dr. Tuthill gave a series
of these lectures which were very
largely attended and which proved
to have been so carefully planned
and delivered that his instructions
when put to the test were easily fol
lowed, and proved most helpful in
helping fellow men who were injured.
It is the intention of the Doctor upon
his return from New York to resume
the lectures, as he has been requested
to by all who have attended his lec
tures not to drop them on account of
the great good they were doing.
The Democrats in camp are making
preparations to do some of the most
successful campaigning this coming
election ever undertaken. To make
this possible a meeting was held at
the Morenci Club last week by the
leading democrats to talk over plans.
Mr. Owen was appointed chairman
pro-tem and presided over the meet
ing. After various plans bad been
thrashed over it was decided that to
get perfect unison between all the
voters that the best plan would be to
form a Democratic Club. A commit
tee was appointed to solicit and get
members for said club and that with
in a week a meeting would be called
at which time all business necessary.
for the forming of such a club would
be taken up. It seems that this is
the right, in fact only way in which a
political organization can hope to do
any real good at election time as
every me mber of that club feels that
be has some part to look after instead
of sitting back and letting some two
or three carry all the burden.
Fireman Is Scalded
The outgoing Morenci Southern,
Monday morning, had the misfortune
to have the tender and two cars try
to get ahead of or on top of the en
gine, and almost succeeded, and there
is seemingly no reason for it other
than that the cars and tender wanted
to get ahead, as the track was in line
and to outside appearances there was
nothing to cause any one to believe
that such a thing could or would
happen in the usual run of things.
The track had not beeu giving any
trouble neither had the cars been out
of order and it was siooply one of
those iuexplainable accidents that
happen to railroads at times and
which for the same reason are un
avoidable. The cab of the engine was
somewhat injured, and the bursting
of a steam pipe on the engine badly
scalded Aimer Fiske the fireman He
was brought to town and placed in
the D. C. hospital, and when the
wounds were dressed it was found
that he had blisters to spare, and
while the burns are very painful it
is still hoped that they will not prove
necessarily over serious.
The Political Situation
The political situation is still taking
the center of the stage. Although
not having as many candidates in
Moreuci, as has the county seat town,
we have a few who are looking for
office. We now have two democratic
candidates for the office of Sheriff,
Gid Thompson and Jim Wester, one'
democrat for Justice of the Peace,
B. K. Williams, and one republican
for the same office, A. B. Cutler, one
independent, W. H. Chapman. There
are three democrats for the office of
constable, Jim Cash, Fred Remick,
and Billy Knight. For Supervisor,
we have Jack Farrell a republican,
and for the Legislature, W. M. Mober
ly. This candidates are not only
rumored but declared, and that will
give them an opportunity to get
around, and the people will have a
few to consider from Morenci.
J. R. Wester of Morenci, demo
cratic candidate for sheriff at the
primary election Oct. 24th, was in
Clifton Tuesday evening interviewing '
the democratic voters of this precinct.
