Catching a ride on the rear end of automobiles may be lots of sport for little boys, but the pa rents who will have to foot the doctor bills and funeral expenses should impress upon the youngs ters with a shingle if necessary the danger incurred in such prac tices, instead of putting it off until some serious accident happens. The Baptist church recently organized here, has extended a call to Rev. W. P. Epperly, of Flaerstaff, to become the regular resident pastor. Whether that gentleman has decided to accept we have not yet been advised, but we trust he will consider the matter favorably and come to live among us. Winslow has the best bunch of popular preachers of any town in Arizona, and Mr. Epperly will fit in fine, as all who know him will agree. In a conversation recently with an eminent attorney of Arizona, he very tritely remarked that if the judge of a superior court was a clean, honest upright man, learned in the law, and had a backbone, the governement in the county over which he held jurisdiction would be clean in every respect, as his character would compel obedience to law, order and decency. But if he was a spineless monetity, ignorant of law, and given to crooked unscrupulous work him self, the government of such a county would sooner or later become rotten and corrupt. This attorney is a man of wide exper ience, and if his conclusions are correct how important a matter it is to the people that in the selection of superior judges the right kind of timber is chosen to fill so important a position. Judges who will cunningly and maliciously violate a law of the state ought to bejimpeached and forever debarred from holding any public office, and should fur ther be disbarred from practic ing law.
