Flagstaff, Ariz., Dccl 13 (Special
correspondence of the Republican.)
The town under tho shadow of tho
Sac Francisco peaks is fitting herself
for a season of winter snows. This is
not all.. Flagstaff awaits, a new year
that bids fair to offer a liberal supply
of good things any one of which is
stifflcleut in Itself to lead her up to
greater) possibilities. The cltinous are
ever ready to. accept t good1 thing and
in the past thoy haro put up good
luoney to secure it, but as often failed
o acquire the coveted. Tired of
loading up illiterate cusses who bad
big schemes to make "Greater Flag-
stag," tho citizens hare decided to
run things themselves, ami take the
'nil; e off11 in future deals. Flagstaff
Is about to build her own water works.
Tho propositions to bay tho $65,000 in
water bonds carried with them not
only a good proilt to tho buyers but it
meant that money was to bo drawn
out at regular intervals for years to
come. Matters ou tills lino arc In an
embryo Hi ate ns yet, but tho plan is
suro to assume deiiuito form before
tho year expires. On -the other baud
the towu anticipates tho honor of
being the terminal point of the Grand
Canyon railway that is to be. This
may cost some money, but thoy say
litev must havo it. after a loner and
facilities and a site for a copper smel
ter, the Grnnd Canyon to supply tho
copper. The nbovo is good enough
for ono letter, and if all comes to
Flagstaff, and she stands a good
chance of gettiug what she wants, the
towu will take on new life and Phoe
nicians who come next summer may
expect to see greater Flagstaff, sure
Tho "gapping wounds" seen at
every turn In towu, are an argument
In favor of water works nud a better
system of fire protection. There are

Norton wlio plays short stop on oc
casional jobs of work about towu, and
who obtains more drinks on short bits
than any oilier Inebriate, camo very
near, going on au excursion to Yuma
undor tho protection of Ralph Camer
on or some of his deputies.
Friday is an unlucky day with
Norton aud on that day of last week
ho was doing some janitor work' in
the opera house for James Simpson,
and when Norton lias a job ho has
business by the car load, and has to
irrigate a great deal to give him cour
age to face hard work of over thirty
minutes of duration.
"Willie on Mr. Simpson's job Norton's
business eye was looking out for other
business, and ho caught it. A woman
gave him a twenty dollar bill to go out
In town and get changed and to re
turn the change to her, but Norton's
mind became so beclouded by Iniga
tiou that he returned the, change to
Mr. Simpson Instead of tho woman
Norton handed Simpson the twenty
dollars in change saying "that is tho
change foryour fifty dollar bill.." Mr,
Simpson replied that ho gave him no
fifty dollar bill to chauge, nnd that if
he had tho chango was thirty dollars
short, but Simpson seeing that Norton
had looked upon tlie wine when it was
i9xtsissffvegvrsfw Rexzz
something would develop later and
Norton wasn't capable at the time of
taking care of it.
In the evening after the woman had
wailed for the return of her change a
reasonable time she swore out a war
rant against Norton for embezzling
her money, and tho officers gathciel
him in nnd stored lilin nway in the
county jail where lie would bo con
venient for futuro reference.
As ho was so completely disguised
in "bug juice" nothing wns thought
of his being in charge of an officer.
Mr. Simpson next day related tie
circumstance of Norton having de
posited twenty dollars with him to
Julius Aubineau, and Mr. Aubineau
having knowledge that Norton had
been arrested tho evening boforoat
once concluded that tho twenty dollars
mentioned above was the causo of his
aVrcst which proved true.
Had Mr. Simpson, been a dishonest
man, and kept his lips sealed, Norton
would havo had to servo a term in
prison and be branded- as a felou.
This should be a lesson to Nortou to
quit Irrigating for next time ho might
put monoy into the bauds of a dishon
est person, and ho would have to suf
fer tho penalties of the law for em
bezzlement. Norton was the victim of circum
stances in tho above transaction. He
received the monoy, ho failed to re
turn it to tho owner, and he was drunk
