COUNCIL SETS RATES The Council at its meet- www 1 1 mg on last Wednesday night decided on the rates to ba cnarged on city water. This price is merely tentat ive.

The minimum rates per month will be $1.75. $1 per 1000 gals, for the 1st 5000. 75 cents per 1000 gals, for the 2nd 5000. 60 cents per 1000 gals, for all over 10,- 000 gals. The tapping charge tor joining onto the water mains will be $20. This includes the meter. After payment of the money to the Town Clerk, Jay Patterson, each one will receive a receipt and upon presenting this to Mr. Manley, who was de signated by the Council for the work, the line will be brought to the edge of his DroDertv from the water mains. The water is being pump ed into the tank on top of the hill and no doubt we will all have the water soon. After the resignation of Mayor Chas. Cooley, Mr. L. Cadwell was appointed as acting mayor.

OF BANQUET The Chamber of Com merce held its regular monthly banquet at the Rees. Cafe on Wednesday mVht. It was ladies' night and the wives turned out in larse numbers. The chicken dinner was delicious and all did full justice to it. After the pang3 01 nun- ger had been assuaged Judge Sidney Sapp as toast master, announced the topic of the eveniher. "Our Mun- icinal CamD Ground." He called on many speakers. All nut themselves on record as beincr stronfflv in favor of the scheme. Mr. Jordan's plainly stated objection to a location near the cemetery seemed to meet with gen eral approval. Several other sites were suggested and the com mittee was directed to con tinue its search. The plan adv need by Mr. W. H. Chamberlin advocating the nurchase of lots bv the city, to be used as a public park later, and the erection or the buildings and the in- tallation of other improve ments by the C. of C. seem ed a most feasible one. This matter of a free camping fJTtvjnd for toe tourists needs mime liate attention. We should not sleep on the job. What other towns have tmi we can do.

THOMAS HANCOCK OF TAYLOR DEAD On last Sunday all the mortal remains of Thomas Hancock of Taylor were paid the last solemn ceremonies and laid tenderly to rest by Ins loving friends. Mr. Hancock was about 48 years of age at the time of his death, having come to Arizona in 1882. He leaves behind to mourn his loss a wife and four little ones as well as two adopted child ren. At the funeral services the speakers were Atty. T. K. Greer of Holbrook, Judge Geo. H. Crosby of Flagstaff, Frank M. Perkins, Joseph W. Smith,., and ,Mary S. S hum way. Mr. Hancock's sad death was the result of an attack of Flu resulting in pneu monia. The community has lost a valuable citizen in Mr. Hancock's demise. As one of his friends remarked to the editor, "I never knew a man with fewer faults than Thomas Hancock." MANY GOJISHiNG "Fisherman's itch" seems to have descended upon many of the citizens of Hol brook. 1 he only known cure for this is to hie away to the mountains, and spend a few days in seclusion. Some of the latest to succumb to this virulent infection were Mr. Arthur Schuster and Mr. B. A. Jackson. There were however other victims who departed toseek a cure on the very same day. Among the number were Messrs Teeple, Cook and Ted Reuter. Whatever else hap pens, we bet that Teep comes back with the biggest fish story. HAVE YOM JOB! If vou have a lob, we have a good man for it.

GRIST FROM THE LEGAL MILLS On last Saturday.- a casa. was brought in the J. P. Court in Winslow charging M.J.Schumacher, a Santa Fe officer with two " offenses under the law. The first that of "aggravated assualt", the second being assault by public officer, under color of authority, without lawful necessity.' The accused was bound over to the Superior Court on two charges by J ust ice of the Peace Sweeney, with bail in each case set at $250. The cases rose out of an alleged beating given by the officer to a young man by the name of Edwin Fast. The 'casus belli' in the matter seems to have been some thing about walking on the R. K. right of way. Hardly enough cause it would seem, to 'clean up' on the young chap. A Winslow case, that of Refugio Hernandez, was al so tried by County Atty. Greer during the latter part cf the week, in the J. P. Court at St. Joe on a change of venue. The case was that of receiving stolen goods, and was unearthed by the efficient Winslow officers, Gardner and Kelly some time ago. The parties were bound over to the Superior Court, greatly to the satis faction of the officers.
