VOL XIII. Preparations for the Fourth There will be a meeting of all the sub committees at Elks Hall on Monday evening at 8 o’clock tor the purpose of putting the final polish on our Fourth of .July celebration. At the eleventh hour James Kiely has volunteered to assist Chef Stiles in the administra tion of the barbeque This in itself is an added attraction. The grand stand will be made safe and sound in every way for the reception of the occupants and none need tear accident. 'Pile boys are practising base ball regularly every evening and if either Fort Apache or Needles team win the purse it means a struggle to the finish. Horse entries are coming in rapidly and from the present outlook it appears that several heats will be necessary in the different races. We are pleased to announce that the baby elephant is on its feed once more and greeting all comers with a pleasant smile The committee has secured a cannon and the day will be ushered in by a salute from Ruby Hill. Preparations for the grand ball are progressing nicely and the music will be of the very best obtainable. The Red Men have voluteer to furnish a float and other or ganizations should fall in line. The Elks as usual will be both seen and heard and their reputation for doing the clever thing leads us to expect a treat from that source. This is the first celebration this town has had for a few years and we expect the other towns in the county to get on the band wagon and visit with us. We have in the past often patronized Flagstaff and Will iams during their little jollifica tions and to the denizens of those towns we can recommend the best of times here on the Fourth. We understand they are hav ing celebrations of their own, but for the real big. unvarnish ed. colossal barrel of fun come to Winslow and see how we do things in the right kind of Ari zona style. The Santa Fe’s shops at Al buquerque are reported to have been destroyed by tire yester day evening. WINSLOW, ARIZONA, SATURDAY, JUNE 16. 1906. An Afternoon Social.

And say, the majority that we will give in this territory against the measure, will be a surprise to the most skeptical Oklahoma and Indian Territory have at lasi succeeded in securing what they have deserved for many years.
