The business depression gener al all over the United States is making itself felt on the coast lines of the Santa Fe, freight bus- WINSLOW, ARIZONA, SATURDAY, FEB. 1. 1908 iness having fallen off to such an extent that a general reduction has been effected in all branches of the service. During the past week several freight crews have been pulled off the regular board and the men youngest in the ser vice set back to the “slow” board; two operators taken off in the Winslow office; the work ing hours in the shops reduced from ten hours to a nine hour day, as well as a material reduc tion in the number of men em ployed in the mechanical depart ment. It is also said that some saving is to be made by a reduc tion of the number of switch en gines and switching crews em ployed in the Gallup yard. Mr. A. I. McKenna, accom panied by his wife and family, arrived in Winslow this week from El Paso, Texas, where Mr. McKenna has been lor many years in charge of the Holmes Supply Company’s store at that point. Mr. McKenna has ac cepted the position of manager for the same interests in Wins low, relieving Mr. C. E. Gaston, who has resigned to re-enter the service of the Santa Fe. Previ ous to accepting his late position with the Holmes Supply Com pany, Mr. Gaston was chief clerk in the local freight agent’s office. Wednesday night about -fine o’clock, the body of a man sup posed to lie that of Wm. O’Neal, a brick-layer recently in the etn plov of the Arizona Lumber and Timber Company, at Flagstaff, was found on the track about one-half mile east of the station at that point, the head being badly mashed and completely severed from the body. A ticker to Williams was found in the pocket of the deceased. A coro ner’s jury empanelled on the case returned a verdict of accidental death. That the patrons of the Ray mond and Whitcomb excursion bureau are not suffering from the “panic” is evidenced by the ex cursion train passing through here Friday, a party of ex cursionists occupying nine Pull man sleepers running as a special train through to Los Angeles. Two carloads of the party made the trip to the Grand Canyon, taking in the scenic beauties of that well known resort. Word reaches us of the marri age in the Roman Catholic Church at Prescott, Ariz., Janu ary- 26, 1908, of Mr. Frank Bur gett and Miss Gertrude Diskin, Rev. Father Mandin officiating. The bride is a native daughter of Prescott, the groom, who is well known in Winslow, having for merly resided here, occupying an an important position with the 8. F. P. & P. Railroad Company. Marley and Co., the butchers, who will soon move into the new building erected by this firm, to be occupied exclusively by them, fittingly dedicated the structure this week by giving a dance on Tuesday evening, which was largely attended and greatly en joyed by their patrons and neigh ; bors. The second story has been leased to Dr. F. H. Waite. E. Baca, A. Romero, Viola Wil liams and Mary Green, residents lof the Red Light district, were each sentenced from ten to sixty days in jail by Judge Flinn Thurs day- for being drunk and disord erly and fighting. The sentences were suspended provided that | the offenders left town before sundown, which they did. Barber Green met with a rob ber early Monday morning when opening his shop, who was go ing to appropriate Green’s watch but the latter argued his case with a six-shooter, and the rob ber decided there were healthier places elsewhere. It is needless to say that lie failed to getaway with any booty. Hugh Anderson, a stockman of Flagstaff, while going west with a carload of cattle, slipped J full between two cars at Selig man Monday evening, breaking his right leg. Mr. Anderson was brought to Flagstaff for treat ment, and at last accounts was getting along as well as could be expected. Willard Bazell, for many months past employed as pres cription clerk in the drug store of A. E. Gillard, left Monday- even ing for Kentucky, where he goes to finish his course in medicine, expecting to return to Winslow after graduation, to take up the practice with his brother, Dr. R. G. Bazell. Miss Louise Blake Kaehler, dramatic reader, impersonator and soloist, assisted by Miss Lu eile Martin, violinist, and Mrs. L. L. Martin, accompanist, gave a delightful entertainment at the opera house Sunday night under the auspices of the Santa Fe Reading Room. A full house greeted “The Tho-: ! roughbred Tramp” at the ope^a' house last Saturday night, and judging from the applause and cheers, the performance was a good one and the audience got its money’s worth. George L. Barnes, of Fdagstaff, has taken up his residence in Winslow. Mr. Barnes, who is a well known musician, will be the moving spirit in the band and orchestra now being re-organiz ed here. An order was issued y-esterday closing the telegraph office at the Santa Fe shops in Albuquerque. Mr. Shoemaker, operator at that office for the past y-ear, will be assigned to some other point. Dr. Geo. P.Sampson and Frank C. Kirker returned Thursday from a visit to the White Mount ains, where they- are interested in a sanitarium which is about ready to be opened to the public. J. L. Code, formerly employed as a dispatcher for the Santa Fe at this point, but at present holding a like position at Need les, Calif., visited here with his family the past few days. Engineer Yaegar and a party of friends went to Manila Tues day evening, hoping to bag a goodly supply of ducks ere Fri day- morning’s sun overtook them. A. J. Cato, a veterinary sur geon who came here from Texas recently, was taken to Holbrook Monday morning by Sheriff Woods to be examined for insan ity- T. E Bingham, traveling audi tor for Armour and Company, the well known meat packers of Chicago, was a Winslow visitor this week visiting the trade. A party consisting of Messrs. Robt. Burke, Geary, Ketchum, I Todd, Bauerbach and Thurston are at the St. Joseph lake after ducks and other game. C. M. Dawson returned Mon day from San Antonio, Texas, where he has been for the past two months visiting his parents and other relatives. Geo. J. Flurshutz, representing the Pacific Hardware and Steel Company, of San Francisco, vis- I ited the local merchants this ! week. Merchant F. S. Meyerhoff, of Holbrook, came down Tuesday ! to take the limited for San Fran ; cisco, where he goes for a short stay. No 1
