IT HOUSE LAST NIGNT
Charles D Ward democratic candi
date or the nomination for governor
o the State ot Arlzwna addressed an
audlonco ot about 800 people In front
of the court bouse last night
f Tho audience was composed of
1 pie ot all political faiths who had
in tae mud Blinglug business and If
Hunt desired to become a candidate1
again for governor he had an un
deniable right to do so and that he
Ward would not engage In any fac
tional fight and that he would leave
abuse of opposing candidates to
come to listen to the prlncipcs upon others
i l
which he is making the race for the Taking up
closo attention of the audience
Mr Ward was introduced to tho
people by John F Webor secretary
of the Graham County Central Demo
cratic Committee
After touching on a few personal
matters regarding his residence tn the
state he entered Into a discussion ot
the great issues of the campaign
After a tew brief remarks regard
Ing his trip from Globe to Safford Mr
Ward outlined tho principles upon
which ho stands and advocated a
united democracy in tho State ot Art
zona He summed up the problems
that aro now confronting the demo
cratic party in the nation and state
and empfaaslxod particular tho ques
tions which must bo answered at tho
coming election
For years the peoplo have been
rostless Four years ago they were
restless They wanted a change
Thoy placed in the the United States
senate mon opposed to Woodrow
son They began tho most wonderful
campaign in history a campaign of
hato and vlndictlvonoss directed not
at any party but at one man the
president of tho United Statesa
campaign such bb had not been known
bofore in the annals ot this or any
other country They placed in the
national capital and in tho senate
its best mindB What thoy havo done
they must be given credit for and
what thoy have failed to do they must
bo blamed for How carefully those
leaders wero chosen and with what
slnlstor purposes thoy wore placed
in control Is shown by the fact that
when the names of these best minds
were announced lo the name ot Sena
tor Lodge led all the reBtl
Those loaders bullded upon hate
v Since they havo been In power they
have not kopt faith in a single in-
stance Thoy havo wrgotten every
I promise They have disgraced every
i pledge And for those things tho
plo again are restless Tho people
havo aeon that legislation was direct
ed to the benefit o ftho groat financial
lnterosts ot tho east
In his speech Mr Ward explained
that ho had boon given tho endorse
ment of tho democratic conference
at Tucson unsought and that ho nover
appealed to tho voters to vote for him
because ot party affiliations but loft
thorn to uso thoir own Judgment be
lieving that the voter owes it to his
party to his state and his country to
bo honcBt in his political beliefs
In roforrlng to the candidacy of ox
Governor Hunt Mr vyai it
v
the amendments the
V nomination speaker said ha was in favor of tho
MrWardis a ninn whoso Urect primary although there were
slonal attainments whose broad mind 11 defects in the present law one
and whoso high ability all tit him for of whch allowed a republican to
tho position of govornor of our great- as A democrat in order to help
state Ho is an eloquent forcible and nominate a weak candidate on that
convincing Bpeaker and was given the
tickot and then in the general elec
tion to vote a republican ticket in
order to defeat the democratic nom
inee No one ho safd but a dirty
common crook would take advantage
of such opportunities and advised
members of the democratic party to
be above such dirty work The pri
mary law he said gave the people
a diroct voice in the selection of the
men they wished to conduct the af
fairs of government and should not
be abused
He belleveB in the constitutional
amendment giving to tho farmers the
right to organizes and secure tho bone
fits to be derived from cooperative
marketing
Another thought comes to me here
During this campaign I am going to
carry to the public tho message of the
danger ot bonded indebtedness The
atato is permitted now to bond itselt
to the extent ot 350000 This nmount
may be too small but it is proposed
that the state shall be allowed to
bond itself to 4 per cent of Its assess
ed valuation Four per cent seems
little but a paper and pencil will tell
you that It amounts to 32000000
and it is my honest belief that If we
could havo bonded ourselves to 4 por
cent ot tho assessed valuation of the
state fivo years ago today we would
bo ground beneath an Indebtedness of
the whole 32 millions You aro al
roady burdened by the interest on the

Saturday Juno 3rd and has now reach

such favorable indications of oil have
boon found that Mr Clark has decided

foot or more
