Oberholser, in his discharge of his duties as | agent f< r the A. & N.

The present incumbent of tije Duncan deputy-ship is ;Mr. LoW enbruck, who is to be congratulat ed upon the easy place he has fall en heir to. The term, J ‘peace of ficer”, is a fitting one in this instance; his duties ate about as arduous aS reclining in a hammock that stretches beyneath one of oUr noble shade trees.

Billingsley’s Work at Bir* mingham. ’ 1 " That Duncan made no mistake in its choice of a representative at the Birmingham Good Roads 1 Conv ntion is proven by the manjf press concerning the work of Mr. Billingsley there. Ariz ona was in the lime light at Birih? iugham; Mr. Deli Potter was a spokesman second to. none. Both Billingsley and potter were ret cognized as two of the most en thusiastic delegates in attend ance, Mr, Potter was elected first vice president of the United States Good* Roads Association* the name umier**hieh . ization will gqdn the future. Mr, Billingsley was selected vice president of the state of Arizona, as well as a member of the committee appointed to draft a constitution and bylaws. The meeting as a whole Was very en thusiastic; an indication of the results of the meeting is wel indicated in article sos the con stitution, as follows; Section J. Tne. object of thi* association is to promote immedi ate federal legislation in behalf of an adequate system of good roads; greater in importance than the construction of the Pan* ama canal; fraught with more beneficent results to the republic of humanity; and demanded by the people of the United States with more unanimity and deeper desire than anything else present ed to Congress. That the nation will soon have a highway that will stretch from coast to coast was the universal opinion of the delegates present. It is almost an assured facl that this highway will count Duncan as one of its stations; the work accomplished for us at Rirrni p ghem. by the delegates sens frqm this section will meap lasting benefit lor Duncan.
