Opportunity Presented to
Citizens to Secure Big
A very enthusiastic meeting of
citizens of Safford took place Satur
day night ut the Chamber of Com
merce where they met Dr W J
Gnlbraith of Los Angeles Cal
who laid before the meeting a pro
position to build a large sanitarium
close to town
v Dr Galbraith was very favorably
Impressed with the perfect climate
of the valley and the further fact
that a hot well had been successful
ly secured whose waters were of a
curative nature helped to convince
him that a sanitarium could be built
on its site and a great business
established In fact the sanitarium
could be built and maintained closer
to town than in any other part of
the State and an added inducement
was the knowledge that it could be
built close to a railroad line
The matter of establishing a
sanitarium was fully discussed and
the citizens present were enthus
iastic in their support of the
proposition A committee was ap
pointed to take up the matter at
once with the owner of the propei ty
t George W Healy of San Carlos
and make arrangements ror tne
purchase of the property
This committee consists of three
members pf the Town Council
Mavor Z C Prina and Councilmen
David Kidgway and P Jacob-
son and two members of the Chamb
er of Commerce Messrs A R
Lynch and F L Ginter
This committee was instructed to
get busy on the proposition to secure
the sanitarium and also get the sup
port of the people of Saffoid and
the valley in the matter
The establishment of a sanitarium
would be one of the greatest and
best things that could be secured
for the Gila valley No better
means could be derived to advertise
the perfect climate fine soil and
successful irrigation of valley farm
lands than the establishment of a
sanitarium the IargesHntheState
and which would draw hundreds of
people from all parts of the country
Dr Galbraith Is very enthusiastic
over the proposition and fully be
lieves that the conditions here are
superb for the successful maintain
arice of a sanitarium and ho will
cooperate in evefy WftV with the
committee and devote time and
money to make the sanitarium pro
position a success

The men had eight years trial of

done so anytime during the eight
years from 1893 to 1901
That womans suffrage makes
better vives because they have

That womans suffrage makes
better wives because women now
realize that they can no longer blame
the men for the condition of v the
country knowing they are equally
to blame for such conditions by their
That womans suffrage has
brought out the higher moral quali
ties of woman to bear on the politi

at the polls clubs and elsewhere for
the Bupression of the white slave

women a higher conception of her
duty rs a mother by enlarging her

Board of Supervisors Turns
Down Petition for County
Seat Removal
The board of supervisors met
Monday morning and took up the
matter of the petitipn of the citi
zens of the county to have an elec
tion ordered for the purpose of re
moving the county seat from Solo
monville to Safford
The opponents to the petition
weie teuresented by Mr Bennett
of Phoenix The citizens of Safford
were represented by Stratton
Lynch vy K Dial Geo H Crosl y
Jr and W R Chambers
The board passed over the matter
Monday and declared they would
decide the matter Tuesday On
Tuesday the board met and the first
thing they did was lo allow about
fifty names to be withdrawn from
the petition N
Then the boaid declared that non
resident taxpayers should not be al
lowed to sign and their names should
be cut off The same oider was
made as to the names of widows ap
pearing on the petition Not hav
ing enough assessable wealth cut
off by taking off the names of non
residents and widow the boaid
then proceeded to take off the names
of all corporations By doing this
they cutdown the assessable wealth
represented on the petition over
600000 making the list 275000
short of the required amount needed
The entire proceedings were mani
festly unfair and high handed The
board took upon itself the authority
to decide a judicial question same
as was done by the Yavapai board
of supervisors in the matter of the
assessment of the United Verde
Copper Co which the Supreme
Court decided Monday they had no
right to do
As soon as the attorneys for Saf

The Value of Piano Prizes
in this Great Contest
Is 133000
The first piize amounts to 350
or 263 per cent of the total prize
value In other words only a trifle
over one fourth of the prize value
On the other hand the secondary
prizes or piano purchasing certifi
cates amount to 733 per cent of
the prize list thus composing in
the aggregate by far the largest
part of the prize value Nearly
three fourths of the value to be
it i true that the first prize goes
free and it can be won by only
one candidate You however
have just as good a chance to win
the first prize as anybody if you will
Now it is well enough to have
your mind fixed on first place
Remember however that there
are four valuable piano prizes be
side the firat The second prize is
only 90 less valuable than the
first and the second prize exceeds
the third in value by only 10
while the fourth and fifth are dis
tinctly worth having
Even the last two prizes enable
tho winners to purchase the piano
for less than our wholesale price
to dealers These pianos are guar
anteed as you know for ten years
and the quality you can judge
yourself from that of the one at
the Contest Store
The first prize in 263 per cent
of the total prize value The fifth
prize ia 1 72 per cent of the total
prise value Not such a very great
difference after all
The point of this letter is to em
phasize the fact that there are
other prizes beside the first Of
course it is undeniably better to
win the first prize than any of the
others The secondary prizes
howover have a real value and
enable you to get a splendid piano
at a very low price In watching
the first prize therefore do not
forget that it comprises only a little
over one fourth of the total value
and the three fourths of the prize
value yet remains after the first
piano is given away

Speaking of the valley in jreneral
Mr Smith said i
I have lived in the Gila Vallev
for the past twenty five years and
have watched the towns grow Saf
ford is the metropolis of the valley
andis surrounded by small towns
and a fertile farm district which I
believe isfthe richest in the state
Mountain water for city use is as
sured in the near future and the
court house which is now located
in Solomonville will soon be moved
to Safford
There are wonderful opportuni
ties in this rich valley for industri
