WINSLOW, ARIZONA, SATURDAY, APR. 25, 1908. An Error The following letter is self ex planatory. We are always glad to correct an error. —Editor. Holbrook, Arizona, 4-19-1908. Lloyd C. Henning, Esq., Winslow 7 , Ariz. Dear Sir: — 1 notice in Saturday’s issue of the Mail an item concerning the delegates to the Territorial Republican Convention. I wish to state that there were only four delegates selected for the territorial convention, as that w r as all our countv was entitled to, our vote being 223 for Mr. Cooper while it required 225 to w 7 in another delegate Another item is that you state that the delegates w ? ere instructed to vote for an instructed delegation for William 11. Taft. You are in error on this point also, as no such instructions w ? ere given. It is not my intention to get into print or newspaper controversy concerning political matters or any other subject, but the item as it appears is a mis-statement and should be corrected, as the item looks as if the information had been given to serve a pur pose. Very respectfully, W. H. Clark. There w 7 ere two Republican conventions held at Tucson last week. As a result there will be a contest at the National Repub licat Presidental Convention to ascertain which set of delegates shall be seated. It seems that factions of the territorial conven tion separated over certain mat ters concerning the nomination of W. H. Taft for president. Both sides claim to be in the right. R. C.

The Winslow team averaged fourteen years of age and the Snowflake team over sixteen. As a further handicap the dia mond was ankle deep w 7 ith loose sand. However defeat is only deferred victory and the team is not discouraged in the least. After the game dinner was an nounced and all were invited to dinners in which the good people of Joseph City excel.
