The Winslow Mail.
J. H. CHAPMAN, Editor. Entered as second-class matter at the postoffice of Winslow. Arizona, under Act of Congress of March 1, 1879. Published every Friday. Sub cription, $2/00 per year. Friday, - - December 8, 1916. The latest figures compiled by Secretary of State Osborn shows 12,092 automobile licenses have been granted in Arizona this year, 4774 more than were grant ed last year. Evidently the peo ple of the state are not suffer ing any from financial distress. Jonn D. Archibold, president of the Standard Oil Company, died at his country home in New Jersey last Tuesday. His claim to fame was based entirely on his ability to handle the gigantic corporation of which he was president, and through which he accumulated his fortune estimat ed in the millions. Dissolution of the spirit and the body has separated him from his job and his millions, and the world is none the better for his having lived, except that his immediate relatives will be abundantly provided for their future comfort. The board of supervisors of Coconino county did not canvas the vote from Saginaw precinct because it was not returned in time by the election officials, but Attorney-General Jones, hearing it cast a majority for Hunt, im mediately notified the board that it meet, canvas and make return of the vote. In Cochise county the supervisors did not canvas the vote of Wilgus precinct for the same reasons, but it gave a majority for Mr. Campbell, and up to date we have not heard that the Attorney-General had issued any preemptory man date on the Cochise supervisors. This is what our democrats friends probably call fair dealing, and getting an honest express ing of the vote as cast for gover nor. With not a republican paper in the state making an adverse comment on the proposed contest on the governorship by the friends of Gov. Hunt, every democratic paper is devoting considerable space explaining why there should be a recount in the interest of honest elec tions, and closing their diatribes with the suggestion that re publicans are placed in an unen viable position by antagonizing the movoment. Up to date the democrats are doing all the talk ing and making all the noise, and republicans are sitting quiet ly by awaiting the pleasure of the democrats, and it is this silence and indifference that is worrying the democrats who are urging the contest. We hope our American women in their zeal for suffrage will not be guilty of the rowdyish mili tant tactics of their English sis ters. The action of a delegation in the House at Washington, in unfurling over the balcony rail a “Votes for women” banner, while President Wilson-was de livering his message to Congress was but a little short of insult to the Chief Executive of our coun try. These il-advised enthusi asts of suffrage should remem ber that the first requisite of citizenship is loyalty to the office of President of the United States, and their cause, however just, is not advanced with sober-mind ed, thinking people, with mani festation of lack of courtesy and respect to that high office. It was not Mr. Wilson speaking to Congress. It was the Presi dent of the United States. The sergeant-at-arms promptly grab bed the offensive banner fiom the hands of the suffragettes, and he would have been justified in expelling them from their seats. The President ignored the incidant with silent contempt and no doubt pity for their im becility. It must have been a real auto- c mobile race that was held in Phoenix Thanksgiving Day. They killed a man or two and injured some others. Its great 1 sport. The Williams News has given a manifestation of financial pros-! perity by adding a linotype ma chine to its office equipment. Mr. Wells is giving the people of Williams a good local newspaper, and we are glad to know he is getting rich. When the legislature meets in January three women will occupy seats in the lower house, Mrs. McKay of Bisbee, Mrs. Pauline O’Neill of Phoenix and Mrs. Theodora Marsh of Nogales. There will be no member of the gentler sex in the senate. The rumor has it now that Secretary of the Interior Frank lin K. Lane is slated for a posi tion on the supreme bench made vacant by the resignation Chas. E. Hughes, and that the cabinet vacancy thus created will go to Francis J. Heney of Los Angeles. W. J. Bryan wants the govern ment to publish a newspaper so the people can get all the doings of the government at Washing ton pure and undefiled. We can imagine how pure and undefiled it would be with a board of edi tors holding their jobs by virtue of political appointments. Those editors would be more interest ed in holding their jobs than in giving the true inwardness of the government business, and some of the crooked schemes that always are being railroaded through Congress. At last the official canvas of the vote for governor has been completed, and Tom Campbell has a majority of 32 over Gov. Hunt. Within the next few days Gov. Hunt, by his attorneys, will institute a contest to have the ballots recounted, alleging fraud in some of the counties. A peculiar feature of the proposed contest is that fraud is alleged only in the counties that gave a majority for Mr. Campbell. Is it not remarkable that all the counties that gave Mr. Hunt a majority held perfectly legal and honest elections? The sixty-fourth Congress as sembled for its last session Tues day noon, and according to his custom, President Wilson ap peared and personally delivered his message to the members. It was a brief message, dealing al most entirely with the railroad problem and the eight hour ba sic day of the train service em ployes. He also asks that the membership of the Interstate Commerce Commission be in creased, and their powers en larged so the question of wages can be considered in adjusting freight rates. He also advocates some method of compulsory ar bitration to prevent strikes in the future. The members are all anxious to dispose of all the unfinished business before Con gress by March 4th to avoid a special session next summer. Speculation in food products of all kinds should be made a felo ny by an act of Congress, and then have the law rigidly en forced by putting a few offend ers in federal prison. To per mit capitalists to band together to corner food products and then force from consumers an unre sonable high price is a crime against society, and shows the dangerous power of capital if per mitted to go unchecked. Cold storage concerns should come un der government supervision, and schedules of storage limitations placed on thedifferent food stuffs. There is no defense of the princi ple of storing eggs for ten months or a year—it is simply gambling with the food products of the CDuntry taking no account of the suffering of the poor in its wake. It is up to Congress to act at once with effective legislation to sup press the greed of Mammon and j save the people from oppression | and want. Why not patronize the Win slow Laundry? We have the most up-to-date plant in the state, and i it is a credit to any city. We are doing high grade work. We are home people; we employ fourteen people, and the money paid to them is spent right here in town. Ail we ask is a trial bundle. F. D. Howe, Lessee.
