The wooden fire escape on the North Grammar building was re cently condemned as unsafe and an iron fire escape ordered in stalled at once. At the recent meeting of the Supervisors of Navajo County, the tax levy for Dist. No. 1 was raised sufficiently to pay off the debt that accumulated against the school district during the period 1910-12. Over half of the special school tax levied is for this pur pose. When this debt is paid the High School levy will not ex ceed S3O on the SIOO.OO, while it is estimated that at the present rate of increase in school popula tion that no further Public School levies need be made on Dist. 1. All needed funds beginning July 1, 1914 will come from State and County funds. C. O. Case, State Superinten dent of Schools recently forward ed a High School voucher for $1,993.90 on the State Treasury. This will reimburse the District for the following expenditures of the past year.

HARPER REMOVED FROM REFORM SCHOOL After a brief hearing berore the board of control at Phoenix, A. L, Harper was removed as sup erintendent of the state indus trial school. W. M. Whipple, member of the lower house of legislated n from Greenlee county and a warm supporter of Gov ernor Hunts prison reform pol icies, was appointed to fill the vacancy. Both motions were made by the governor. Mr. Harper and his attorney, C. F. Whitcher, were present. The superitend.ent was inivited to make a statement and Mr. Whit cher asked that the entire matter be deferedtill after next Monday, when Mr. Harper would have a a hearing in Tombstone on a charge of ‘ ‘exaggerated battery. ’ ’ —Republican. BENSON TROUBLE SEEMS TO BE GROWING Tombstone, Ariz., Aug. 19. Notwithstanding the fact that A. L. Harper was last week sum marily removed as superintendent of the state reform school the troubles of that institution seem to be .multiplying. On Saturday night three boys made their es cape from the school and on Sun day night three more made their getaway, according to reports reaching Tombstone. When Governor Huntappointed W. M. Whipple as superintendent of the'Benson school, he further sweetened the Whipple family by appointing the new superinten dent’s daugther as matron of the school. When the new matron arrived to assume her duties the lady that had filled that position refused to surrender the position and it is likely that the secertary of the board of control will have to make another trip to Benson to decide as between these two claimants. When word reached Fort Grant that Gov. Hunt had discharged Harper as superintendent as to reports reaching here, all the former civilian employes who were carrying on the state work at the new institution, threw up their jobs and left, leaving only a few boys at Grant with no one to look after them except some honor convicts that were sent there to assist in the work of pre paring the old government build ing for use in connection with the reform school. Whipple, the new superintendent, is yet at Benson tryin to straighten out the tangle. As Governor Hunt and superin tendent Sims, of the state prison are now en route to Flagstaff where they will meet Mulford Windsor and then proceed north to witness the Hopi snake dance there is some wonder as to what will come of the reform school muddle until the excutive returns to the state capital and gives his orders in the matter. Governor Writes Letter It is rumored in Tombstone that Mr. Harper, the deposed superintendent, has a letter writ ten by Governor Hunt in which Hunt said that he regarded the story about the whipping of the kids as merely trumped up news paper charges. This letter is made public in connection with the manner in which the gover nor “threw the hook” into Mr. Harper would prove interesting. Private Board.

At the rear of the Harvey ho tel a heating plant is being erect ed which will furnish heat for the Harvey House and reading room, the estimated cost of which is about $2,500.00. A rumor is now afloat that the present old roundhouse will in a few months be cleaned off its present location and a large office building erected for the various i department offices now in the | depot. I his it is said will he done Ito make more room ter the Har vey system, also larger waiting rooms in the depot for ladies and gentlemen, the only offices to remain in the present budding being the ticket office and the baggage room. Come to think of it, these so called corporations do not want the earth, but believe in giving and taking, and Winslow has been getting and will always get its share ol improvements and share ill the profits of the Santa Fo with its $300,000 pay roll month l.v in this city alone, and for that 1 eason alone we should foel e’rati - ful. accomodating and encourage - ing to the Santa Fe as we would towards a friend who has done us a kind act.
