CARL HAYDEN. HUGE CROWD AT SNOWFLAKE CELEBRATION SNOWFLAKE —The pioneer cele bration held at Snowflake last Sat urday was the card of attraction for people from all parts of the state. A crowd of people estimated between 1500 and 2000 were said to be in attendance. The celebration was held at the John T. Flake reservoir south of town in the shade of large cotton wood trees and partly surrounded by water, which made it one of the most ideal places in this section for a celebration of this kind. Al though the grounds were not in the best of shape, it is expected that they will be placed in first class condition to accommodate the cel ebrations that will be held there at future dates. Already this place has been unanimously selected as the ideal place to hold the after noon sports for the Navajo County Fair which will be held in October. The entire day’s program went off in tip-top shape with something kept going all the time from the start in the morning until the last strains of music died away at the close of the dance in the evening. People from all parts of the state were unanimous in their decision that this was the best celebration they had attended in many years. Promptly at 9 o’clock the parade of floats started from the town to the grounds. Each auxiliary or ganization of the stake had a rep resentative float and the Sunday School was awarded first money for the most beautiful one in the parade. The barbecue at noon was pre pared in very tasty style and many pronounced it the best they had ever tasted. Children’s sports held full sway for about one hour at the start of the afternoon program. The first thing after the chil dren’s sports was a matched race between Pete Cobb, of Whiteriver, and Frank Armstrong, of Mesa, in which the latter won by a close margin. There were a total of ten men entered in the t scheduled 100-yard dash, so two elimination races had to be run in order to find the fast est men. Those running in the final were: Pete Cobb, of White rover, Frank Armstrong and Men del Butler, of Mesa, C. Jones, of Winslow, Leo McLaws, of Joseph City, and Max Ortego. of Holbrook.

Doug las, candidate for congressman on the Democratic ticket, spoke before a large and enthusiastic crowd here Saturday evening. In speak ing of the primaries he said: “Any candidate for a legislative or an ex ecutive office who has not the cour age to get up and say what he thinks, regardless of political ex pediency, is not giving the voters a square deal.” Commenting on an editorial in the Coconino Sun to the effect that he would not be successful in his campaign, hy virtue of the fact that he was telling the truth, Mr. Douglas said: “I shall not change my policy of speaking the truth as I see it. I believe that the people of Arizona want the truth. At any rate, I will not lie to obtain votes.” He then went on to speak of the Colorado river: “The river must be developed from the head of the canyon down. The switchboards PAGE FIVE and power plants must be located within the state in order that this state rnay have the right to tax power. The development of power, with the switchboard and power house within Arizona, will consti tute the greatest addition to the taxable wealth of this state and will go far toward protecting those engaged in the permanent indus tries in this state against the day when the mines are gone. A treaty with California is essential to the protection of Arizona’s rights and is the only practical way by which the Swing-Johnson bill and the construction of the Boulder Canyon dam can be prevented.” Mr. Douglas has been compelled to decline many invitations to speak because of a prearranged itinerary which takes him on a speaking tour through every coun ty in the state. He is making an extensive and intensive campaign and according to reports from all parts of the state through which he has traveled and spoken, he is gaining tremendous strength. His fearless honesty and sincerity for the good of Arizona is winning him countless friends. J. B. Drumm Is Out For Justice of Peace Republican Ticket This week, through the columns of The Mail, J.
