Mann is dirking in Wet zler Bros.' store, Joseph Sponscllcr was in town Thursday ami Friday. , Deputy Sheriff Chas. Moss had business at Winslow yesterday. Mrs. Carnegie and little son departed for Santa Ana, Calif., Tuesday morning. Taxes should he paid before December lf, as on that day the penalties will be added. Mrs. Cheney and sons, Ilyruni ami Charlie, came down Wed nesday to visit with J. L. Fish's family. VV. 11. Clark and Wm. Arm bruster were the jurors who rep resented Holbrook at I'reseott this week. Wm. Morgan left Show Low this week for l'hoenix. lie will make the trip horseback and do a little hunting enroule. Mrs. S. 11. l ine spent Sunday with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. F. M. Zuck, and returned to Window Tuesday morning. Don't forget that taxes must be paid before December lo, in order to save the penalties, as they will be added on that day. The B. I'. O. H. lodge at Wins low will hold memorial services in the Opera House tomorrow. They extend a general invitation. S. G. Worden, representing the Whitten Pub. Co. of Los Ange les, was taking orders for some of their valuable publications this week. Major E. I'. Andrus, com manding officer at Fort Apache, was down Thursday to meet his wife and son, who came in from Saint Paul. A. L. Gravely, manager of W'ooster's store at Whiteriver, visited with his many friends here while on his way to Pres cott to attend court. Mrs. J. F. Woods expects to leave next week for Sturgis, S. Dak., to attend the golden wed ding of her father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Harris. It seems that the deputy mar shal secured most of the jurymen for this term of court from the upper country, and there has been quite a number from ApaV die and southern Navajo in to take the train for Preseott. F. J. Wattron will be head quarters this year for holiday goods, and is now busy loading his shelves and decorating his store preparitory to the holiday rush. He will have a fine dis play of these goods which will be sold at reasonable prices. Sheriff-elect C. I. Houck has announced that he will appoint J udd Lathrop as his deputy for Holbrook. This appointment, lis far as we have heard, will give universal satisfaction, and we believe that udd will fill the position with credit to himself as well as the county. W. C. Ten Iiyck departed for his home at Santa Ana, Calif. Tuesday morning, where he ex pects to remain with his family. He closed a deal just before leav ing in which the Apache House was sold to Mrs. Hathorn, who, we understand, will lake charge of the hotel about Feb. 1st. While at Winslow yesterday we witnessed a small scrap be tween a couple of machinists who were on their way home from the shops. One pushed the other through the plate glass front of Babbit Brothers' store, the cost of which will be about $1 50. Rather expensive qu;yrel. Superintendent I. L. Hibbard, Assistant Traffic Manager Bis sel, General Passenger Agent J. J. Byrne and Assistant General Freight Agent W. G. Barnwell came in from the west on No. S this morning. Their private ears are sidetracked here today while they are taking in the pet rified forest. Dr. G. S. Keed, who tins been in Navajo county for several years, left for Phoenix this week with the intention of looking up a location somewhere in that part ol the territory. We would indeed be sorry to lose the doc tor from our midst, but in the event of his deciding on a new location, we hope it will prove beneficial to him financially and otherwise. Word received from A. F. Pot ter states that he has completed his labors in Utah and will re turn to Washington. Says he met many people who had lived or had friends living in Arizona,'' and seemed quite like home. The country has been blessed with good snowstorms and the out look for the farmers and stock men is very encouraging for the coming season. The Indians who, it is suppos ed, stole the bunch of horses .from II. H. Scorse, were called before Justice Wattron Thursday tor a hearing. The Indian wit nesses who had previously ad mitted knowledge of the theft would not squeal when placed on the stand. So there you are.. In another roundup Mr. Scorse may be able to find his horses, if they haven't been killed for beef. Mrs. Ernest Crismon and mother, Mrs. M. J. Ellsworth, came down fromShumway Mon day and left Tuesday morning for Mesa, where they will spend the winter. Mr. Crismon ex pects to go down in a few days, but will go across the country. He expects to be absent about two months, during which time the Silver Creek Flour Mills, of which he is manager, will be closed. This office is now supplied with the best and lnrirest stock of let terheads, billheads, statements, wedding cards, ball programs, calling cards, envelopes, etc.. ever carried by a printshop on this line. There is no need of sending further than Holbrook for your printing. We handle nothing but the best grades of stock, and quality considered, you can't get the work done cheaper in the cities than at home. Ai: parties indebted to me are requested to settle with my successors, Smith & Smith. . T. Eoc.EK. I Senator Deveridg'e. The gentleman from Indiana has incurred the lasting enmity! I of the people of New Mexico and Arizona by his prejudiced, course I in regard to statehood for these ; .territories and his remarkable; ; star chamber way of making his , flying Investigation as to the fit-! ness of these communities for! self-government. j His way of investigating was: somewhat after the style of a i petty monarch visiting a con quered province. He was pre-; pared to turn up his nose at everything that he saw on the hasty trip. The people were at first amused i at his proceedings The idea of! j a young fellow fresh from the I sycamore bottoms of the Wabash deciding upon tne ntness ot a half million of people for self-government by a hasty glance at the dockets of a few country justices of the peace, was so ridiculous that it was not supposed prob able that the senate of the United i States would consider it for a moment. However, it appears from the I dispatches that the question of admission depends upon the re port of Senator Beveridge. He is against us. We do not have ! stump fences like those in Indi- ana, and this is against us in the eyes of Beveridge. We have no white cap societies, such as flour isii'bjc night in Indiana; we' have no dialect poets; no "blocks of five" politicians. To be reported upon adversely by a senator from Indiana is much like being kicked by a mule. The assump tion of superiority is so supreme ly assinine that it is considered more of an insult than an injury. New Mexico and Arizona hope that the venerable senate will not take the sophomoric senator from Indiana as their guide on this great question. They have more than a schoolboy know ledge of the resources of these territories. As to Beveridge, personally, he 1 sll"uld be retired at the end of I his senatorial term. He is en- tirely out of place in the senate. He should be assistant attorney for one of the big trusts. Albu querque Citizen. TIME TABLE gllffl KMect June 1, 1902. WEHI No. 1. I No. 7. STATIONS.
