J. H. CHAPMAN, Editor. Entered as second-class matter at the postoffice Winslow, Arizona, under Act of Congress of March 1. 1879. Published every Friday. Sub cription, $2.00 per year. Friday, - - January 10, 1919 There is an advantage in be longing to the minority party in the legislature, as the members will not be troubled with appli cants seeking jobs. The five re publican senators and the ten re publican representatives can en joy themselves during the first few opening days of the legisla ture watching the democrats fight over the distribution of the patronage. Under the provisions of the statutes when the senate assem bles next Monday at noon Sena tor Parr, of Navajo county, will have the honor of being the tem porary presiding officer. The statute says the oldest senator in years shall call the senate to or der and preside during the tem porary organization. In this state where we have woman suffrage this law ought to be repealed, because it will hardly be fair to ask the lady senators their age to discover if perchance one of their number is the legal and proper officer to open the ses sion. It was a cruel canard that was started that George Creel, head of the censor bureau, and press agent for President Wilson, had resigned his job and was coming back from France. Nay, nay; Creel is not a resigner. He is in the *lime-light for the first time in his life, and far be it from him to resign when he can load the cables with the important news of the magnificent quarters furn .ished the President, the gowns worn by Mrs. Wilson while abroad, while parents in this country are awaiting delayed messages of the injury or death of their soldier sons. Postmaster Burleson probably took over the cables under government control especially for Mr. Creel’s pub licity. The best epitome on the life of Roosevelt is to be found in an ad dress delivered by him in Paris in 1910, when he uttered these words: “It is not the critic that counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles,or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly, who errs, and comes short again and again; be cause there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds. Shame on the man of cul tivated taste who permits refine ment to develope- into a fastidi ousness that unfits him for doing the rough work of a workaday world.” What a sorry spectacle will be presented by the United States when the peace delegates assem ble in France, with her four little political whipper-snappers head ed by Col. House, while England will have Lloyd George, Foreign Secretary Balfour, Andrew Bonar Law, and the Chancellor of the Exchequer Viscount Hardinge, and several other of her great statesmen. Other allied countries are also sending their biggest men, but it was left for Presi dent Wilson to pick about the weakest representatives it was possible to find among the hun dreds of our brainy statesmen of all parties. Perhaps Mr. Wilson purposely selected the mediocre talent as our representatives, knowing that he intended to be there in person, as he wanted to shine out as the one brilliant star in the galaxy, which he would not have been able to do had he selected men of calibre. m Enters Gov. Campbell. Last Monday at noon Gov.-elect Thos. E. Campbell assumed the duties of his office, and with his advent begins a two-year trial of the republican party in Arizona, with the responsibility of a suc cessful issue resting entirely on Mr. Campbell. Since the advent of statehood the democratic cam paigns have always been made on the false declaration that the re publican party was the enemy of labor, and this element of voters have had their minds poisoned by this democratic sophistry to the point where it bordered on hysteria. All the wisdom of the ages is not wrapped up in the democratic politicians of Arizona by any means, and if any voter would take the time to view con ditions of labor in states where the republican party have been in power for years, he would dis cover that the administration was just as friendly to labor, but not so bombastic about it, as any dem ocratic administration in Arizona or any state. The republican party is not one of class, which we are glad is true, but it stands for the best interests of all the people represented by labor and capital. Gov. Campbell enters upon the discharge of his duties with a full knowledge of the existing prejudice in the ranks of labor against his administration, but he takes up his responsibilities with a clear conscience that he has no ulterior motives or fixed purposes to injure the cause of la bor, or use his authority unfairly to its disadvantage. He no doubt justly feels proud of the distin guished honor that has been con ferred upon him by the people of the state, and it will naturally be his highest ambition to render such a service that it will be cred itable to him and win the appro bation, not only of his own party folldwers, but all the citizens of the state who are not blinded by a partisan vicious bias. These are those whom God Almighty himself could not please unless he bore the party label of de mocracy. Gov. Campbell is a native son, and in the days when this state was a “no-man’s land,” he with his parents fought their way through the hardships and priva tions of those early pioneer times. He is not a stranger to hard man ual labor, and his heart interest and sympathy has always been with the laboring man. He has not gone about the state a rant ing demogogue shouting that the laboring man do no wrong, and that all employers are slave driv ers, but he has always taken the broad view that capital and labor must be kept in unity of action for the largest development of the state and her unlimited nat ural resources. We believe we know Mr. Camp bell well enough, and understand his true characteristics, that no man can dictate to him to do what he would consider unfair or unjust. We hope and believe he will welcome wholesome sug gestions and advice from any man or body of men, and consid er well any idea or theory they have to advance if for the best interest of the state. It is to be expected that the democratic pa pers will criticise every appoint ment made by Governor Camp bell, because it removes a demo crat from office, but let us hope the opposition press will at least be fair enough not to start a lot of senseless prattle on every move and turn made by the Gov ernor that he is favoring the big interests and oppressing the la boring man. So far as we are personally con cerned we are more interested in the success of the republican party than in the elevation of any man to an office, and so long as Mr. Campbell keeps the party true to its tenets of equal rights and opportunities for every man, just so long will he find jin us a loyal supporter of his adminis tration. When he departs from this line he ceases to be a repub lican from our view, and we come to the parting of the ways. [ Col. Theodore Roosevelt is dead!! This news wired from Oyster Bay so long his home, last Monday morning, cast a gloom over the whole country, stilled the vitu perous tongues of his political enemies, and brought a heartache to millions of his devoted friends and followers. He was a most remarkable figure in the world of great men. He was born in the lap of luxury, and early in life was left with sufficient means to lead a life of carefare idleness, but his Dutch ancestry had bred into his bone the spirit of action and the accomplishment of some purpose in life, and we find him when just over his majority a member in the New York legis lature, with the same fighting spirit cropping out at this early age, that so marked his career all through life. He was a man of strong convictions, and a tear less courage to defend them; he never refused a battle no matter how powerful the opponents, and defeat only tempered his steel for greater effort. No man ever battled his way to the front as one of the world’s greatest char acters in the face of so many ob stacles, but always undaunted he pressed forward with as much zeal as though there were no op posing forces. He was not diplo matic. He spoke his mind too freely and forcefully, shooting always straight at the mark with no thought of its effect upon him self. He was great in that he harbored no petty jealousies, and in his official life he surrounded himself with the biggest braini est men he could find, with no thought or fear of their brillian cy overshading him. His quick ness at forming decisions some times led him into error, but he just as quickly reversed himself, even to his own embarrassment, when shown his mistakes. The passing of Mr. Roosevelt removes the most striking figure ever pro jected into American politics, and we doubt if ever the world will produce again so unique a char acter. His name will always be connected with the history of the United States, with Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln and McKin ley. Why Worry About Your Party Cakes and Pastries?

Town v Next door to Postoffice, Sute WINSLOW, ARIZONA Perhaps if the government al lowed the discharged soldier boys three months’ pay, as well as permitting them to wear their uniform during that period of time, it would prove of far more benefit to the young men while they are reconstructing them selves to civil life. Many young n en are released from the army with barely sufficient funds in their possession to pay their ex penses from the demobilization camp to their homes, and even under most favorable conditions jobs are not picked up instanter when they reach their destina tion. It is a duty the govern-' ment owes to its soldiers to give them pay for ninety days to give them a spirit of independence.
