Mr L L Henry the all around
Good Roads booster yesterday re-
cieved word from A L Lawshe the
Indian agent that Supervisor Charles
who is connected with the interior
department will be here in a few
days to investigate the bridge sites
pursuant to the inquiry for which
congress appropriated 15UU Mr
Lawshe wanted to know if some of
ihcmen interested In good roads
could be induced to meet Mr Charles
and furnish him with certain data
connected with roads and bridges
data much needed in connection
with this particular inquiry Mr
Henry has already succeeded in in
teresting several gentlemen from
Globe and vicinity who have pro
mised to meet Mr Charle3 and sup
ply the desird information
It is hoped that two bridges cost
ing approximately 100000 will be
built by the United States govern
ment as a resultof this visit of Mr
Charles to this section Both of
the bridges are to be located in the
vicinity of San Carlos One is to
cross the San Callow river the oth
er is to woss the Gila River It is
expected they will prove a valuable
link in the ocean to ocean highway
The theory on which the appro
priation is to be made is that these
bridges Will greatly benefit the
Indian reservation Belt
The bridges across the Gila and
San Carlos must be built When
Mr Charles arrives a delegation
from Graham and Greenlee counties
should meet the delegation from
Globe at San Carlos and show the
gentlemen why the bridges are
necessary not only for the great
benefit it will be to the Indians but
also for the traveling public as well
An entertainment will be given
tomorrow Saturday night at
Briers Hall for the benefit of the

have given the same entertainment
at Solomonville
The success was such that every
one who attended the performance
was highly pleased and the mem
bers of the company complimented
on their showing of advanced talent
The success of the entertainment
was due principally to Mrs Nora
Clark who disinterestedly gave her
time and energy in training the
juvenile company
Included in the entertainment to
morrow will be the moving pictures
under the direction of Mr Brier
It is hoped that the people of Saf
ford and the valley will patronize
the entertainment as it is given for
a very worthy cause

The Republican of Saturday says
that the interior department of the
United States government has noti
fied Governor Hunt that application
for the use of the buildings upon
the tort Grant military station had
been granted and that the state of
Arizona was at liberty to move the
industrial school from Benson there
at any lime -it saw fit This tele
gram is a result of th erece n t ceeTF
mg of 200 acres of the old fort re
servation to the state for the pur
pose of and industrial school which
was done by act of congress shortly
prior to the adjournment of that
body some few weeks since
Following the ceeding of the 2000
acres to the state the locality was
visited by the Arizona land commis
sioner while that body was in the
course of its tour over Graham
county recently and the 2000 acres
were selected that portion of the
post being chosen upon which the
buildings were located Following
the selection a survey by the sur
veyor general of Arizona was or-
deit d which is now in course of
It was understood from the be
gining that when the btate bhould
take over the portion of the fort
reservation it was to be used for
an industrial school The present
location of the school at Benson has
been very unsatisfactory The
buildings are in bad repair and un
safe and great apprehension has
been felt for the safety of the in
mates For some time work has
been done on them to keep them in
shape so thy could be used as tem
porary quarters pending the action
of the state to obtain new and more
satisfactory quarters
The location of the school at Fort
Grant has been by many persons
who have seen it pronounced the
ideal location for the state industrial
school The climate is ideal the
land is fertile in the extreme there
