A New Engine The work in the Guardian office has increased to such an extent that we have been compelled to install an engine. A new Lambert gas engine has been purchased from L. G.

No matter whether Texas goes wet or dry next Saturday, the nation expects her to go anti- Bailey next year. Sensible and Pointed Hon. John J. Birdno, editor of the Guardian and Chairman of the Democratic County Com mittee, sends a sensible and pointed telegram on the Recall of the Judiciary. It follows: “Safford, Arizona, “July 12, 1911. “Eugene Brady O’Neill, “Washington, I). C.: “People of Graham county want recall of judiciary. If pre sident objects to Arizona recall ing corrupt judges let us remain Territory. We feel that no officer should be above voice of people. Does president desire to retain recall of Arizona judges in his own hands, by keeping us Terri tory. Ninety per cent voters en dorsed recall of judiciary. Will Taft agree to sign Flood resolu tion with recall judiciary elimi nated, knowing people will put it back immediately? If so there is neither principle nor policy in Taft’s position. “John J. Birdno.” The Hot Stuff Some time ago the Rev. I). F. Sellerds ‘certified to the applica tion of a couple who applied for a marriage license, as is provid ed by law that where the appli cants live more than ten miles from the county seat, the appli cation can be made by any person authorized to perform the mar riage ceremony. Probate Clerk Venable refused to issue the license, because it was not certi fied to before a justice of the peace. Mr. Sellerds took the matter up with the Attorney General of the territory, who ruled that the probate clerk should issue a license when the application was properly made out and acknowledge before a person authorized to perform the marriage ceremony. Last month Mr. Sellerds forwarded another application for a marriage license to issue the license and wrote Mr. Sellerds as follows: “We construe the law to mean that Ministers have no right to swear parties who desire to make ap plication for the issuance of mar riage license. Under the cir cumstances we will be compelled to refuse to issue marriage license made out before you.” The Lib eral always knew that Probate Clerk Venable was the hot stuff, but it did not think until it read this letter, that he had the nerve to over rule the Attorney Gener al of the territory on a question of law. It will be noticed that he does it, and furthermore places himself in the kingly class, who are all wise, as is indicated by the use of the pronoun we. Lib beral.

The body was taken to El Paso yesterday for interment —Liberal County Road Work Dis continued A complete surprise was an order made by the Board of Sup ervisors before the adjournment of the Board when upon motion made by George Webster and seconded by B. F. Billingsley an order was entered on the minutes discontinuing all Road work by Superintendent Aw alt until fur ther notice from the Board. What prompted this order by the Board is not known. There was no discussion when the mo tion was made and it was enter ed on the minutes without corn met. Evidently the order was the result of a caucas held previ ous to the meeting between Mem bers Webster and Billingsley. As a result road work in the country will be at a stand still until further orders. —Era. Out of the Ginger Jar A fat fee makes a lean client. A setting hen is in no fear of the roasting pan.

Cleary, better known as “Windy Bill” has pur chased the defunct Miner plant at Bisbee and will turn editor. The Phoenix Sun is a new morning daily which spread its first ray of light on the morning of July Fourth at Phoenix, edit ed by tin 1 noted lecturer, journal ist and sterling Democrat, Sam W. Smail. The Globe Silver Belt has changed hands again, Cleve W. Van Dyke purchasing it from Sidney Bieber. This paper sold a year ago for .$40,000, it is said. Patt Sullivan will be editor. The Daily Globe changes edit ors,—A. A. Cohn has resigned and goes to Los Angeles and Roy Davidson takes charge of the Globe’s tripod. Patt Sullivan is a Democrat editing a Republican paper while Roy Davidson is Republican edit ing a Democrat paper. They are certainly getting things mixed a little in Globe politically speak ing. Colonel John W. Dorrington, editor of the Yuma Sentinel, the oldest newspaper in Arizona, having been established in 1870, has retired from the newspaper field and turned his paper over to the Yuma Exaniner publishing company. The Douglas International is authority for the changes made in Greenlee County. W. B. Kelly, editor and manag er of the Copper Era, has pur chased a controlling interest in the Copper Era and the Morenci Leader. Mr. Kelly will consoli date the two papers and publish a most creditable paper in Clif ton. The Gila Valley Record, pub lished at Thatcher has turned its toes to the daisies. The Record has had a checkered life—almost romantic. First launched in the town of Safford under the name The Journal in opposition to the Guardian —thus conceived in sin its life might have been expect ed to be a millstone about the necks of those responsible for its existence —this name (what is there to a name any way?) not being able to carry the sheet on flowery beds of ease it was chang ed to George Crosby’s Paper. But, Safford was not yet ripe for two papers and it made little dif ference whether the name be changed to Theodore Roosevelt’s Paper or Booker T. Washington’s it would not carry it through and the paper was moved to Thatch er, a prosperous little town but too near Safford (three miles away) where it was christened its last and final name, the name it bore at the time of its death. C. C. Cole was the physician in attendance and had been con stantly at its bedside until recent ly a moving picture show showed itself to be more lucrative in Thatcher than a newspaper when the Doctor changed his treatment finding it better to reach the people through the sense of sight rather than through the columns of a newspaper. Thus the record of the Record is finished. McCamant Appointed Trustee School Superintendent, J. W. Aker, appointed Hood McCamant school trustee to fill the vacancy on the Duncan school board caus ed by the removal of Jas. T. Tong from the Territory. Mr. McCamant will make a splendid member on the Board and this appointment will keep the board in good hands, public spirited sincere and conscientious citizens.

Miller of Franklin left Monday for Liberty, Arizona, where he has a good position and expects to remain for some time. Mr. Miller’s many friends here will wish him much good luck and prosperity at Liberty. Some of the people who will read your next ad in The Ari zonian will be trying to find out what is YOUR PRICE on some thing they MUST BUY within a day or two. If you fail to quote a price, they’ll probably assume that you don’t sell it. Mrs. B. A. Wilson brought some exceptionally fine potatoes to this office Saturday. With such mammoth potatoes as these at five cents per pound farmers and truck growers should be elat ed. Back East we would say, “$2.80 per bushel”. T. J. Cauthen was over last week from Glenwood, New Mex ico on business and visiting old friends. While here Mr. Cauthen bought the fine Percheon horses of Mr. McLennan. Two for SISOO, and toook them back with him. These were two of the finest horses ever brought to this country. J. A. Whitridge was down from Morenci last week looking after business here. Mr. Whit ridge is one of the proprietors of the Grove Poultry Farm across the river, Mr. Carter being manager. We acknowledge a business call from Mr. Whitridge and a renewal of subscription. Sheriff, I. B. English and his brother W. R. Luke, passed through Duncan last Friday re turning from Rodeo. N. M. where they had gone overland on- busi ness connected with the killing of their brother Frank English. Mr. Luke is from San Antonio, Texas, and likes this country very much. W. E. Cure ton and Harry Martin were in town last Friday to receive two car loads of full blood Hereford bulls shipped from the east. These bulls cost SISOO and goes to show that Mes srs Cureton and Martin believe in keeping their stock graded up to a high standard of perfection. In selling this year they received $1 more on the head than other cattlemen simply because their stock warranted the better price.
