The Arizona Development Board of which I have the honor of being’ a member, held its first semi-annual meeting in the audi torium of the Gadsden Hotel in Douglas on the afternoon of the 13th day of May. This organiza tion which is yet in its infancy is composed of the Secretaries of the Commercial bodies of the Territory and of the Immigration Commissioners of the different counties, although I believe, that the Immigration Commiss ioner of Greenlee county has neg lected to take out a membership. This organization is for the purpose of securing a closer affili ation of the different Commer cial bodies and to give them an opportunity to work together, therebv securing the team work which is .necessary for a general advancement along the lines of work mapped out. Secretary E. P. Grin dell, of the Douglas Chamber of Com merce and Mines called the meet ing to order and the address of welcome was given by Mr. Sta Arizona Development Board cy, President of the Douglas | Chamber of Commerce and Min es. Mr. H. V. Failor, President of the Development Board and Secretary of the Tucson Chamber of Commerce responded and thanked the people of Douglas for their hospitality. Among the prominent people who addressed the meeting on topics and general interest, were: Miss Charlotte M. Hall, Terri torial Historian: Mr. J. B. Gir and, Territorial Engineer; Mr. R. H. Forbes, of the University of Arizona: Mr. J. M. O’Connell, of Bisbee and Frank R. Doan. Miss Hall’s adress was especially enjoyed and Mr. Forbes made a good talk on the natural resources of Arizona and explained the good work that tltfs£x peri mental stations are doing 1?i helping the agricultural interests of the ter ritory. Mr. O’Connell although representing the mininginterests of Bisbee made an excellent talk on the entire Territory and its needs. One of the best things he said was when he quoted Mr. | Douglas, the head of the Copper | Queen Mining interests as fol- j lows: “Mr. Douglas says the peo ple who live in the farming com munities of Arizona seem by their actions to believe the people re siding in the mining towns of the Territory eat and use nothing but alfalfa and barley. They devote their entire time and energies to raising these two articles notwithstanding the fact that the merchants are im porting every day carload after car load of products that may as well be raised in Arizona. The mining companies in all of the larger districts are as rapidly as possible replacing their horses and other draft animals with elec tric trucks which one should plain ly see cuts down the market for feed-stuffs. On the streets of Douglas one seldom ever sees a horse, the entire busines of the | town being done by Antomo -1 biles. ” On the train I talked with Mr. Miils the head of the Detroit : Copper Mining Company of Mo i renci and he told me that the Clifton and Morenci Districts used each month of the year ten thousand dollars worth of eggs and that by far the greater part of this is imported from Kansas and other eastern points to the detriment of home industry. Yet ! our people insist on raising the crops with which the market is glutted. The people of the Clifton and Morenci district do not live on eggs and poultry products ex ! clusively and there is just as good a market for other form of gar i den products as there is for eggs. If our farmers and our merchants ; will see that all produce is shipp ed in a marketable condition and placed on the market at the pro per time there is no reason why the immense amount of money sent to other countries should not stop right here in Duncan, and add to the material wealth of its s inhabitants. The members who were pre | sent will ever remember the hos pitality of the people of Douglas. ! Douglas showed herself to be a wide awake cosmopolitan town and the dinner and entertain i ment at the Country Club was a credit to the management. To Mr. Stacy, Mr. Grindell and to the Douglas Chamber of Com merce and Mines we owe our thanks. John R. Fowler. Capt. Wald Returns j 0. R. Wald, one of the best ' known printers of New Mexico land Arizona, who helped to inst j all our cylinder press last Sept ember and who left here in No vember has returned with a “handle” Jo his? name. He is! just fresh from the battlefield of i Old Mexico where he enlisted i with the Insurrectos for r.he cause of freedom: he was in a number of skirmishes and in one decisive battle, that of Agua Prieta across the international line from Dou glas. Mr. Wald was ranking Captain and no doubt made a good officer; they did much marching and endured much hardship; but. now | that the war is over, peace sign-' ed and the cause for which he was fighting been won j he will get his 150 acres of la nd ; to be given by the Republic. • Captain Wald had his horse shot from under him, he came out without a wound.

Taylor, Duncan’s bust ing wholesale and retail mer chant, made a trip to Clifton last I week on business in connection I with the disposition of the pres ent hay crop for the farmers. Mr. Taylor finds upon investi gation that the Clifton hay deal ers prefer the hay baled in small I size bales, say averaging 70 | pounds. You see it is this way, I the dealer must retail a bale of ; hay for 75 cents no difference ; what the weight may be. Or. he | must sell 20 bales for a ton and it makes no difference what the bales weigh. Now, it naturally ! follows that the dealers prefer a small bale. It is a natural law of trade ! that the “demand governs the price” in Clifton and Morenci the demand is for a small bale: 'and to supply this demand deal ers in Clifton have been forced ;to get hay from lower valley points, this cuts cut the sale of hay from our own valley. Mr. Taylor, in view of these facts, urges his farmer friends and customers to prepare their hay in SMALL BALES to satisfy the demand in the Clifton and | Moverci markets. He believes | that if the farmers will do this he can always find a ready mar ket for the hay produced. ; Some farmers in the lower val | ley who made the mistake of | buying balers which make the I large bales had their machines ! cut down or have discarded them altogether in order to furnish to ; hay dealers the size hale the de jmand calls for. Our farmers i must do likewise, if they expect jto please the mining camp deal ers. j Indians for U. S. Soldiers 1 1 Special to Arizonian Washington. 1). C., May 7. An Interesting proposition has reached Washington in the nature ;of a proposal by Mr. C. C. Cole, editor of the Gil i Valiev Record, to organize a troop of Cavalry made up of Apache Indians. In : his correspondence to Delegate ! Cameron, Mr. Cole states that |at the time of the taking of the last census, the district which he i enumerates embraced part of the San Carlos Indian reservation and that in the course of his woi k he made the acquaintance of a large number of Apache boys , who are graduates of different Indian schools. These boys have ! been urging him to secure the* | consent of the Government to allow them a troop of cavalry to be recruited from their numbers. The secretary of War, to whom the matter was suggested, has expressed the opinion that it would be necessary to secure an act of to authorize the organization, if it is made up ex clusively of members of the Apache tribe, and if it is found that such is the case. Mr. Camer on proposes to take the matter up with his colleagues in Congress in the hope that he can secure favorable action. Meanwhile the Delegate is giving the matter serious attention i n order to arrive (Continued On Page Two) Notice to Dogs and Dog Owners We have been requested by a business man of Duncan to give notice to what he calls a Dog Meeting to he composed of Duncan citizens and held in the.
