—.—Paper VOL. 18. STATEHOOD BILL UP TO PRESIDENT Washington, Aug. 8. —The bill granting statehood to New Mex ico and Arizona, legislation that has been urged for many years by the people of those territories, was passed by the senate to night, 53 to 18, after rejection of the Nelson amendment which proposed striking out of the Arizona constitution its judicia ry recall provision. The bill as passed by the sen ate differs only slightly from the house measure and it is said may be unsatisfactory to President Taft. He hascontended all along that he would be glad to sign the statehood . bill if the Nelson amendment prevailed, but that it was a grave question whether he would be willing to sign it if the amendment were defeated, as it was 43 to 26. The indica tions are tonight that the bill will become a law without his signature. The senate amended the house bill with two minor changes regarding the manner of voting in New Mexico on pro posed amendments to its consti tution. These will undoubtedly be agreed to by the house and the bill will be expedited to the White House. These amend ments were reported by the sen ate commitee on territories and agreed to without debate. Practically all the debate on the bill centered around the Nel son amendment. Ever, some senators who declared their op position to the reeal of judges voted against the amendment on the ground that if the people of Arizona desired the recall as part of their system of govern ment it was for them and not for congress to say whether they should have it. The bill as passed, compels Ar izona, as a condition precedent to entry into the union, to sub mit the recall proposition to the voters for final decision as to whether it shall remain in their constitution. New Mexico must vote on the proposition embod ied in the bill which would make the constitution of the state easier of amendment. The test vote came on the Nel son amendment which was lost.

Single Copies 10 Cents GOOD WORD FOR NAVAJO COUNTY The following clipping was taken from the Kansas City Star regarding Mr. C. I. Houck, one of Navajo county’s promi nent wool growers: C. I. Houck of Heber, Ariz., is a representative sheepman of the great mountain region of that territory. Mr. Houck has been there a good while, and in that time he has had many ex periences. He served four years as sheriff of Navajo count)*, which is about 259 mdes in length. For more than 10 years Mr. Houck has been engaged in the sheep business. This week he marketed here 1,540 lambs and 720 wethers. “This talk about a drouth sounds strange to me,’’ Mr. Houck remarked jokingly. “We have had a strange season out in the mountains, too, as well as the farmers down here in the corn belt. But our season was just the opposite from this. We had heavy rains up on the tops of the mountains, something that very rarely happens, while the valleys are also blossoming like a garden. We have an abun dance of feed everywhere. “The lamb crop last spring was large and we still have on hands a good many .sheep of all kinds. A great many sheepmen have already brought down from the high mountains their flocks which is very unusual. This is due to the fact that we had so much rain in places in the moun tains that it made the grass soft.” Bazell—Gibson Nuptials Miss Helen Marie Gibson, daughter of Supt. and Mrs. E J. Gibson, became the bride of Dr. Ross Gould Bazell on Mon day evening, at the apartments of her parents in Hotel Harvey. Rev. Arnett, of the Methodist church, officiated in the presence of relatives only of the bride and groom. The bride is a stunning brunette. She was attired in a charming gown of white silk chiffon made over white silk, with a deep girdle of white satin. Miss Gibson has resided with her parents here the past year; until then she was a student ol Saint Vincents academy in Albu querque, N. M., where she was a general favorite and gained much renown for her proficiency in dramatic art. She is one ol the prominent society girls of our town and has a host ol friends. Besides her great per sonal beauty, she has a delight ful manner that wins for her the ■ admiration of all here and else where; and above all, she is ab solutely unaffected and her beau ty natural. As for Dr. Bazell, known by every one in town during his six years’ residence here, having come here from Ironton, Ohio, he is being largely congratulated and “terrifically jollied” bv all his friends, who had almost con cluded him proof against matri mony. Supper was served at the pri vate table of the bride’s father, . . 1 in the hotel dining room, and was such as Manager Bryoady alone can have served. The tabic was appropriately decor ated for the occasion and hand ; painted cards, the work of the . bride’s sister, Mrs. Ernest Davis, marked the places for eleven. They were the recipients of many costly gifts. Read tke Mail. Winslow--The Metropolis of Northern Arizona AVIATION MEET IN CHICAGU I |LJJr-j lj i I" ♦Copyright. 1911.) LIMITED CRASHES INTO FREIGHT The crack California limited of the Santa Fe ran head on into a freight train at Flagstaff, last Friday morning, wrecking a ca boose and four box cars. The limited escaped with a few minor mishaps, none on board being hurt at all. The engine men, J Engineer O Young aud the fire man, saw the crash was inevi table and after reversing the lo comotive they jumped to safety, landing unhurt. The wreck caused a delay of six hours. Conductor J, C. Drumm, who was in charge of the freight train, was just making the siding when the limited put in its ap pearance around the curve too late to avoid the accident. An investigation was held here this week regarding the accident and up to the present time none of the boys have lost their jobs on that account and are all back to work. As aforesaid, outside of smash ing up four freight cars, nothing serious happened to the crews or passengers, and the few pas sengers that were shaken up were taken care of by the claim adjuster before the train left Flagstaff, all but one Son of Jerusalem who was persistent in his efforts to sue the company. It is said that the adjuster was persuading aud arguing with his victim all the way to Albu querque, but to no avail. Gasoline Cocktails. A party of our citizens hied out in the mountains the past week for a little recreation for a few days in an automobile. On their way back to Winslow after a dusty ride of some eight or ten miles, they decided to have a nice, cool drink of mountain spring water which they sup posed was in the canteen. The owner of the auto unknown to himself had at sometime filled the canteen with gasoline and thought it was empty aud filled the same with water, the can teen still containing a little ot the gasoline. The first gentle- 1 man who tapped theeanteen im mediately saw lie was stung aud | handed it to the next gentleman and so on until every one had taken his part. In a few min utes after the joy riders were the sickest bunch that ever hap pened. It you doubt the asser tion, just mention gasoline cock tails m company ot some ol ou>r prominent citizens.

The Santa Fe-railroad more than a year ago installed telephones in all stations between Los Angeles and Albuquerque, having pre viously installed telephoneequip meut between Barstow and San Francisco. While it is said that it is not the intention of the op erating department to have tele phones succeed the telegraph entirely, it is nevertheless under stood that trainmen may be re quired to handle their own or ders at certain stations by call ing up the dispatcher on the tele phone aud receiving instructions from him direct. The telegraph offices closed have been small and comparatively unimportant stations and in all cases the tele graph operators have been transferred to other stations aud given oositions similar to those vacated.—Albuquerque Journal.

The Postal savings banks arc only established in the larger cities for the benefit of small de positors who wish the guaran tee of the United States behind deposits made. The selection of Flagstaff was made without solicitation on the part of the people or postmis tress, but it will be of great ser vice to many people with small accounts. —Flagstaff Sun. Mr, and Mrs. Ed Clark and children returned Wednesday morning from Albuquerque where they have been visiting with friends. C hicken thieves seem to have had a busy week, the chicken barn of Mrs. J. Downs being re lieved of a few standard bred Red Rock roosters. The thieves were evidently experienced at the business, as they made no noise to attract attention and iinme idiately proceeded to jerk the ! heads off the fowls, which were found in the yard near the barn. Ed L. Hammersteiu of Gallup ■ was a visitor here Tuesday. City Official Paper BAND BOYS OUTING AT CLEAR CREEK On account of the fatal mis hap, the death by heart failure of Jose Sandoval, while in bath ing at Clear Creek last Sunday, the Winslow Band’s outing was dispensed with as far as the mu sic was concerned. Shortly af ter the arrival of the Band at the creek one selection was played and immediately after that the fatal mishap occurred. The Band left here from Ch.is. Daze’s Livery on a hay rack and a merry crowd they were, accompanied by a large crowd of citizens in all sorts of convey ances. After the accident the Band and the public spent the after noon navigating up and down the creek in the m jtor boat and those who have made the trip praise the beautiful scenery and the quiet, shady, cool ride, sitn ply immense. The b mtcan nav igate the creek for four miles up stream, eight miles the rouu I trip, and those wh > have m i le it, say that one has no ini igin i tion what a delightful trip it really is until one sees it. Barring the sad accident the boys would have had a great day of it and no doubt would have enjoyed themselves im mensely.
