The Winslow Mail.
J. H. CHAPMAN, Editor. . tEr tered as second-class matter at the postoffice of Winslow, Arizona, under Act of Congress of March 1, 1879. Published every Friday. cription, $2.00 , _v jet... Friday, .... October 8, 1915. With the streets of Winslow once more illuminated, and the street sprinkler running, it be gins to look as though the had woke up. The announcement comes from the White House that President Wilson is engaged to be married to a Mrs. Norman R. Galt, of Washington. The whole country will offer congratulations to the President. The marriage will marriage will' occur in December. Splitting wood is a good way to get physical culture, but while it is not as pleasant as real gym equipment the results are just as good. The fathers of the pres ent generation of school kids got their athletics that way, and by the way the vote on the bonds resulted, the fathers think the oid plan is the best, and more economical. “The dear old days. ’ ’ There is need for an arbitra tion court in Arizona, and the mere fact that both employer and the employe are fighting shy of such a tribunal only emphasizes the need for it. It will compel capital to be honest with labor, and it will compel labir to be honest to capital. The walking delegate, who is always a dis turber, would have to keep on walking to hunt up a job or starve, as an arbitration court spikes his graft. The state corporation commis sion is sending out a circular let ter notifying the public of a change in the minimum carload weight on certain commodities, such as flour, grain, brick, cement, alfalfa, stock and poultry feed, packing house products, etc. The rate per 100 pounds remains the same, and the pro posed change increases the: number of pounds for minimum weight to obtain the carload rate on the items mentioned. . These changes are inter-state in charac ter, so that they do not come; within the province of the state' commission to prevent them from becoming effective, but if the* public deem the proposed changes inadvisable or detrimen-S tal to their interests the commis- 5 ' sion is willing to enter an official j protest if such a request is made, ij The Arizona Gazette is unduly f exciting itself about recalling $ Gov. Hunt. Why all this sudden j change in the attitude of the Ga zette? What, according to the church prayer, has the Governor left undone that he should have! done, or done things he should* not have done, that his recall j should be demanded. As a re-j publican we believe all democrat-' ic office-holders everywhere ought t) be recalled, but election day in 1916 is the proper time. Must) the Governor be recalled because! he w r ent to Clifton, and jollied the strikers with a speech, or be-' cause he held a secret conference with Mqyer, the federation agi tator. Does the Gazette know; what the Governor told Moyer? He may have told Moyer that no effort would be made to end the strike if he remained in Arizona, or he might have wanted to bor row a “fresh chew 7 .” Neither of these grounds would hardly be sufficient to work up very much interest in a recall. Does the l Gazette represent the mine own ers, or honest public sentiment? Will it please outline what is its' idea of the Governor’s duty, so; by comparison we can see the 1 short-comings of Gov. Hunt, and. at the same time get a line on ! the propelling force behind the Gazette. There will be no recall election this year. f The good roads conference will | meet in Flagstaff to-morrow. It is the vital question of to-day, ana Arizona is not keeping up with the advancement made by j ’ the neighboring states. Let us hope some good will grow out of this meeting, and towns and the ' counties bestir themselves. Another Los Angeles million aire is in trouble with an affinity j and the scandal will be aired in j court. Millionaires with more! r money than brains have finally 1 got a fad peculiarly their own. •j Affinities don’t seem to thrive except in the lacivious smiles of the old fools who have a bank roll, and beguile themselves thinking they are strong with the ladies, when some designing . female starts in working him for a sucker. He always falls for it, and later wishes he hadn’t. Just when one judge decided we could ship in a little “licker” for family use, and we had about concluded arrangements for fifty gallons, along comes Judge Bax ter, of the superior court of Yu ma, with his decision that no shipments can be made. Just think of the revenue lost to the railroads and express companies! The strike at Clifton does not have the roseate hue to the min ers that they expected when they “re-niged” on their jobs at the suggestion of an imported agita tor who makes his living disturb ing labor conditions. The mine owners refuse to deal with them and closed down. This is hardly what the miners had been led to expect, and with no pay checks in sight they are beginning to feel ugly, and are looking for an excuse to start trouble. When a contented employe will allow a loafing bum agitator to pry him off his job just to make trouble, that i employe can hardly expect any j great amount of sympathy from the public. The mine managers are now at Lordsburg, and if the non-resident agitators drop over there incidentally some night and get a roll of bills the proper size in their pockets, their inter est in the Clifton miners’ condi tion will wain mightily. We have the same confidence in a professional labor agitator that we have in a short-card gambler, as both of them are out for the money. Congressman Hayden made a ij speech to the ladies of Phoenix, ? representing the congressional I union, in which he clearly set i forth his position on the Susan |B. Anthony national suffrage I amendment, and the policy of the I union to organize a fillabuster j until their demands were grant ijed. Without mincing matters he | told the ladies he was heartily in j favor of woman suffrage, and l would support any bill that would bring it about, but he would not i oe a party to any scheme to tie iup congress in a filibuster. Mr. ’ j Hayden is right. The country is [ fast coming to accept woman suf- ! if rage, and the law will soon be j ’ | written in every s- ate constitu-j, j tion, and there is no occasion for; [any semblance of militant dis-j --: play at this time. The country C i was safe and prospered for over; 1 1 ? a century, without woman suf-' ( ffrage, and there is no fear of it! [going on the rocks now unless! ( the national suffrage bill is pass- ! , od instanter. Arizona settled the question for herself, and our ; j [people ought to be fair-minded 1 , . enough to concede the same right j* to the other states. Long before ' suffrage was granted in any state, and was a question debat-L ed in country school houses by • the Pitts, and Burkes and Foxs ( of the community, the writer was ; [a “woman’s rights” champion, ( 'so we are no recent convert to * the cause. We have watched . the sentiment grow, and become i a law in many states, and the ad-. t | vance came always with educa tion and-never with force. It ! will be a great mistake at this ( time if the great body of women , will permit themselves to be led by a few notoriety-seeking indi-! viduals into militant methods. ! Ceder Springs Notes. J. V. Bushman was awarded the contract to carry the mail from St. Joseph to Cedar Springs | via Maddox. He will make his 1 first trip Oct. 22d, and once a week thereafter for three years at per annum, with 90c per i hundred for excessive parcel post | matter. The postmaster at Ce ; dar Springs has been trying to ! get this route established since > March, 1914. Winslow was sug ' gested, but the postoffice depart ment requires strict schedule, which could not be complied with on account of the river. O. W. Marty and bride were accompanied to Cedar Springs by Dr. Moore and family, Wallace Bailey and wife, and C. M. Jack son and wife, all of Indian Wells. Jot Stiles has been on a cattle round-up for a week. He rested a day with Mr. and Mrs. Schwem berger, and in the evening did some fancy card tricks to help pass the time. Jot says his dad will not rest until he sees a bridge across the river at Wins low. The schools at Kearns Canon are closed, and all the teachers have been transferred to other places. The buildings that were put up fourteen years ago have been condemned, and new ones will be built in time for the school term next year. All the truly red-blooded ones will await with interest “Captain Courtesy”, for it stars Dustin Farnum in some dare-devil rid ing wh.ch few people have ever seen. For everybody knows that skilled horsemanship cannot be faked it has to be done. When he plunges through a stained glass window of the old San Fernando Mission to warn the inmates of an intended attack by the Mexi cans, his spirited thorpugh-bred, with dilated nostrils and head aloft, becomes as much an actor as the rioer himself. He sniffs the breeze, then bridges a most dangerous gay with his glossy, supple body, landing in the center of the chapel where the padre is at prayer. This scene is tremendously dramatic, and shows Mr. Farnum to the very best advantage. Mr. Herbert Standing, who has established himself in the hearts of photo play lovers, enacts the role of the padre in a most natural and artistic maner. Electric Theatre, Wednesday October 13.
