Metropolis of Northern Arizona. | o o VOL 26. Republican Conference. As per previous announcement the republicans of Navajo coun ty held a republican conference at Snowflake last Monday, and the goodly number present in the assembly hall of the academy building, was a positive demons tration that the rank and file of the party are determined to go out and work unitedly for suc cess at the polls in November. It was a good old-fashioned love feast and get- together meeting, and the ladies present were just as enthusiastic as the men. The meeting was called to order by Peter Henderson, act ing secretary, and on motion by Mr. Mahoney, Mr. Jos. W. Smith was elected as the presiding of ficer. Immediately the gather ing proceeded to discuss the mat ter of putting forward good strong candidates for the several positions, and at the conclusion of the deliberations the candi dacy of the following were heart ily endorsed, as meeting the conditions demanded this year: For senator, Jos. W. Smith of Snowflake; sheriff, R. L. New man of Holbrook; treasurer, Max Henderson of Holbrook; record er Bryon Yount of Winslow; county attorney, J. E. Crosby of Holbrook; county assessor, A. B. Randall of St. Joseph; superin tendent of schools, Miss Hattie Webb of Pinedale; supervisors, C. E. Owens of Snowflake, and V. C. Proctor of Winslow. No selection was made for represen tative as the meeting decided the candidate should be selected by Winslow, and this place will be filled at a later date. Mr. J. F. Mahoney was made chairman of a committee of five to handle the preliminary cam paign leading up to the primary, looking after the filing of the petitions and getting the party organization in active working form.

A delegation of twenty-five Winslow citizens wended their way to our neighboring town of Snowflake last Sunday to join in the celebration of “Pioneer Day” that was to be properly observed Monday, July 24th. This day is the anniversary of the landing of the Mormon emigrants in Utah under the leadership of Brigham Young, and as the orator of the day, Mr. 0. D. Flake, stated in his address, the Mormons have two Independence days they al ways observe—July 4th, the in dependence of the country; and July 24th their independence from religious persecution. The celebration [opened with a parade of the pioneers in their typical covered wagons in which they crossed the plains, followed by their modern day equipment of automobiles decorated, and fill ed to overflowing with happy faced, husky children. The par ade disbanded in front of Social Hall, where the morning hours were occupied with music, speeches and songs. The after noon was given over to a session of athletic sports and other amusements to entertain the people, and the day was brought to a close with a dance. It was a day well spent and full of interest, particularly to the visi tors from Winslow, and there was a lesson learned that ought to impress itself on every other community. Throughout the day in that throng of people there was not the least boister ousness, dissention or evidence of drunkenness or rowdyism, but only a marked uniform courtesy one to another as friends and neighbors, which overflowed generously on the visitors that helped to swell the crowd. And to a marked degree was this at tention and courtesy showered on the delegation from Winslow which contributed so much to the pleasure of their stay. Death Claim Adjusted. Mr. W. H. Burbage, local at torney for the Santa Fe, return ed Saturday from Los Angeles, where he had been called in the matter of adjusting the claim of Mrs. L. B. Riggins against the railroad for the loss of her hus band in an accident several months ago. After going over the history of the case the com pany settled with Mrs. Riggins by paying $BOOO and all the costs of the administration of the estate, without any suit being instituted against them to re cover. This liberal action by Santa Fe will meet most hearty approval in Winslow where Mr. and Mrs. Riggins were so well known and universally popular. Honey is food and medicine.
