VOL. XV THE DEMOCRATIC TICKET The Personnel of the Nominees of that Party are Asking the Sup port of the Voters of Navajo County. All Taxpayers and are Capable of Filling the Positions They Seek. Delegate to Congress. The first name on the Demo cratic Tieket this fall is that ofj the Honorable Marcus A. Smith, better known to his loving con stituency as “Our Mark”. For successive terms, covering many years, he has been the represen-1 tative of Arizona in the National House of Representatives, and during that time ..is services have been invaluable. That he will again return to Congress and have the honor of being the last delegate elected from the terri tory ot Arizona, there is no doubt, as both the great nation-1 al parties have promised us statehood at the coming session of Congress. Navajo County will roll up a good majority for Mr. Smith at the election on Novem ber 3rd. Councilman, Next comes the name of William Morgan, the genial “Bill” Mor gan. We all know and honor him, a man whose character is above reproach and one who al ways makes friends by his pleas ing manner and earnest expres sion Twice he has served Navajo County in the lower house ot the territorial legislature and that his record in that body is a good one cannot be better signified than by the confidence placed in him by the Democratic Party in setting him at the head of the county ticket. He has been a resident of this county for nearly thirty years and is acquainted with the wants of our people as few men in the county are. He was a supervisor of Apache County, when that County in cluded the present one ofNavajo. If William Morgan is again elect ed the people of this section of Arizona may rest assured that their every interest will lie well cared for by him. He is a man who is worthy in every way of the support of the voters of this county. Assemblyman. In presenting the name of Jos. Peterson as a candidate for the Assembly, the choice has fell on WINSLOW, ARIZONA, SATURDAY, OCT., 24, 1908 none worthier for the office. It is his first advent in polities and no one in the county are possess ed of greater qualities for an honest and conscientious legis lator; he is a gentleman of irre proachable character, by profes sion an educator of the highest standard of scholastic ability, honest, upright and without re proach, and the people ofNavajo County will be proud of the honor of his presence in the next legislature. His scholarly attain ments and intellectual training will in every way qualify him tor the office which the Democratic Party honored him without any solicitation on his part, his party knowing that he was the man for the place as one thoroughly conversant with tne wants of the people in the county and in honoring him they confer honor on themselves. District Attorney. Our nominee for this office is one who has served this county in that capacity for the past four years, and his record in office and the conduct of the affairs coming under his jurisdiction, is the best reason for his re-election. As an orator he is the equal of anyone in Arizona and his ability to present his side of the argument before the bar is exceptional? During his administration of the business of the office ot District Attorney the evil-doers and law breakers have been compelled to take to tall timber, or mend their ways. Alone, and aided only by his ability, he has looked after the legal side ofNavajo County’s affairs in an able and conscien tious manner. The re-election of W. P. Geary will mean a great deal to the taxpayers and voters of this county. Sheriff. Who in Navajo County is not acquainted with Joe Woods? For the last two years he has served us in the capacity of Sheriff and Assessor, and that he has made one of the best Sheriffs (and we have had some A 1 men filling that position) this county has 'ever had, is proven bv his present popularity among his constitu ency. When there is anything done concerning the office of Sheriff, Joe is always on the job. For the past two y ears he has traversed this .county from one end to the other and in every nook and corner in search of law breakers that might be in hiding. And when Joseph F. Woods goes after anyone he is sure to land them. Thai he will be re-elected by an overwhelming majority there is but little doubt, and we might add that there is no one more deserving of re-election than he. Recorder. We all know Alex. F.McAllister, as he has many years been a re sident of this county and during his long term of service as Re corder, has come in contact with every man, woman and child in this county. He has devoted many years to the service of the people of Nayajo County, and his record in office is sufficient to recommend him for re-election. There is no one who could con duct the office he holds in a more satisfactory way. Many is the time that he has gone to con siderable trouble and inconven ience in order to help some good cause that would be of untold benefit to this county. But there is no need of our recommending him to the voters —you all know him and the clean record he has as a public official. “Mac” has always received the support of the majority of our citizens, and this year they will show their appreciation more than ever by electing him with one of the largest majorities within their power to give anyone. Probate Judge. It so happens that the eondi date for this office —Lloyd 0. Henning —is the editor of this paper, consequently it behooves him to assume the usual modes tv of a newspaperman and say but little about himself in the columns of his own paper. He considers himself highly honered in being placed upon the tieket and will not betray the confi dence placed in him by the party. He earnestly solicits, and will greatly appreciate, the support of the voters at the coming elec tion If elected to this office by the good people ofNavajo Coun ty he assures everyone that his undivided attention will begiven to conducting the affairs of the office. Everyone will receive from him his just proportion of that commodity of which we hear so much about and see so little of “A Square Deal.” Treasurer. Mr. James H. Frost, the can didate for the office of Treasurer, one of the most responsible of fices in the county, the choice has been worthy of the man. He has the confidence ofeveryone, known as a gentleman of the strictest integrity, his youth and man hood being spend among us and he has always maintained a character for honest, straightfor ward principles in his home and business relations with everyone. He is possessed of clerical abili ties, one of the principal require ments of the office he aspires to, and if elected will demonstrate his fitness by a thorough and complete system of office work which will do credit to the choice the Democratic Party made in placing his name for the office, reflecting wisdom in the choice made by them. Supervisors. This year we have two candi dates who will not in any way be unfamiliar with the affairs of their respective offices, if elected, they both having served four years on the Board of Supervi sors of Navajo County. That the administration of the coun ty's business affairs under their management was a good and excellent one, we know by the fact that our tax rate has been materially reduced. Mr. Shumway has long heen a resident of this county and is highly respected by all that know him. He has considerable busi ness interests and they are all right here in this county, therefor he is one who will at all times see that the county is w r ell man aged. Mr. Cresw r ell is also a promi nent business man in the county and one of our oldest residents. He has many friends and sup porters in every section of the county r . He is a man ot good business ability and that is the main qualification for a Super visor. Surveyor. In this county this office is one of honor only, the service of a county surveyor never yet having been needed. But if there should ever come a time during the next two years w’hen a competent man is needed, we wfill find it in Mr. Saunders. He is a young business man, being identified wdth also the cattle industry for y'ears and is qualified as a civil engineer, a graduate of a school of civil en gineering. For Justice of the Peace and Constable of Winslow Precinct, the Democratic Party did not place any nominees on the ticket No. 39
