Assuring plenty of water and improved range con ditions, the rains have meant much to the state and to stockmen in particular. Total rainfall for the month in Phoenix is 3.22 inches, more than one-lialf an inch falling in one night this w r eek. State streams are reported as swollen by the rains, and dry w'ashes have been flowing heavy streams of wa ter. In Winslow, after the rainstorm of Tuesday, gutters ran several : inches deep, and in flat places in ; the city, especially near the gas : plant, the water accumulated al-! most to the proportions of lakes. Several automobiles were stalled in the dip by the gas plant, and more in other dips on the highway to the east and to the west. Little damage has been done to crops by the rainfall. Practically ail the canteioupe crop in Salt Riv er Valley has been harvested, which is considered extremely fortunate, since melons are quickly spoiled by too much moisture, and a rain a few weeks earlier would have meant the loss of thousands of dol lars to melon growers. Rapid rises of rivers caused some alarm, but no dams have showed signs of danger. Twelve inches of water are pouring over the Gilles pie dam, stopping traffic from Phoenix to Yuma byway of Gil lespie. The new Horse Mesa dam on the Agua Fria river is reported as safe, also. A washout that occurred on the main line of the Santa Fe between Peach Springs and Hackberry, has been repaired, although a few trains ran late this week. West bound trains arriving at Ashfork after the washout were held at Seligman or Ashfork until traffic was resumed. Forest fire hazards through Northern Arizona were materially lessened as a result of the storms that swept this part of the state. Several small blazes that have been reported in the Coconino and Prescott national forests within the past week were said to have been extinguished by the downpour. Arizona Society of So. California to Hold Annual Picnic Former Winslowiteg who are now living on the coast and local visitors to Los Angeies will have a chance to gather and exchange reminiscences at Bixby Park, in Long Beach, California, when on August 21st the annual picnic of the Arizona Society of Southern California is held. Announcements have been received this week nam ing the date and urging all visitors, former Arizona residents and their friends to attend. A program that will appeal to all Arizonans has been arranged by a committee, and the all-day out ing by the sea promises to be a real western rally. County registers will be provided so that old friends will have no difficulty in locating each other. These state picnics are a feature of Southern California, and the success of Arizona picnics in the past are indicative of the loyalty to home ties that lasts through the years. Both Local Banks Announce Start of Service Charge Following the lead of other Ari zona cities, and going on record as the last city in this area to take such a step, both the United Bank and Trust company and the First National Bank of Winslow have an nounced this t week the establish ment of a service charge on small accounts. For some weeks past both insti tutions have made it plain that such a charge was contemplated, and the justice of the plan, which is intended to reimburse the banks for the actual expense incurred by them in the handling of accounts too small to “pay their own way.” has been realized by their clientele The small charge of 50c will be made at the end of each month on all accounts that have at any time during the month shown a balance of less than $50.00. It is designed to help depositors as well as the banks, since it will be a stimulus toward keeping a more stable bank account. Churches, Sunday schools, lodges and associations, inactive accounts and savings accounts are exempt from the charge. A clearing house association is also planned by these two banks for the near future. COUNCIL ADOPTS CITY BUDGET FOR FISCAL YEAR 1926 (Continued from Page 1, Section 1) told the council and city attorney P. A. Sawyer that the charter would be ready for publication next week and ready for the vote of the people as soon as it had been pub lished as required by law. Activities in the office of city en gineer Stanley Watkins, who is also city purchasing agent, con cerned the contemplated purchase of a siren whistle to warn of fires, placing of lights in exteremely dark alleys in the city, and the resurfac ing of West Second street and East Third street from the pavement to the beginning of the state highway. The lights will be placed immedi ately, and the siren will he ordered on approval. Work started Satur day on preparatory work on street jobs, and Watkins this week issued a call for bids on surfacing ma terial. The possibility of appointng a paid life guard to protect bathers at Clear Creek was discussed, but as the city has no actual lease on the property .and only furnishes the bath house as an accommodation to local people, it was not consid ered feasible or in the city’s juris diction to hire such a guard, and the question was tabled. City May Get Water Plant Another possibility of widely dif ferent aspect was the probable city ownership of the water system owned by the Santa Fe which now serves Winslow. The franchise of the railroad for furnishing water expires in February, 1927, and it is an admitted fact that they would be glad to turn the system over to the city or to a private cornoration. Th« council decided to go as far into the matter as necessary to get complete Particulars on what terms they might obtaiji the water sys tem, and are at present in commun ication with the railroad offices in Los Angeles. Sanitary Condition Good. The report of the sanitarv in spector stated that the general san itary condition of Winslow was very good, that more care is being taken to keep the alleys clean, and that there are apparently 80 per cent fewer flies here than in for mer years. I The extension of sewer lines and gas mains to blocks 1, 2 and 3 of Sweenev Haights Addition will fur ther add to the healthy condition of Winslow. Flier Thought to Be Flying With Girl to Arizona WICHITA, Kansas Search for Miss Ollie Taylor, 15-year-old Wi chita girl, and her purported ab ductor, Erwin H. Day, who is be lieved to have fled with her by airplane, has taken a new turn with the report that the two are headed for Arizona. A reward of $250 has been posted for Day’s capture by relatives and friends of the girl. Day eloped with a 15-year-old girl and married her three years ago. They later separated. He does not have any regular work, but is declared to have had between S4OO and S6OO in his possession at the time of his disappearance. FARREL LOSES HIS FIGHT FOR REGISTER’S JOB PHOENIX —• Lannes L. Ferrall, registerer of the United States land offices here, announced Monday that he would vacate the office im mediately. No further appeal is to be made to the inner department’s refusal to issue him a commission, he said. Ferrall’s announcement followed notification from Washington that the District of Columbia supreme court had decided against him in his action to retain his office. Counsel for Ferrall contended that inasmuch as he was nominated by the President and the nomina tion confirmed by the senate, he, Ferrall, was legally holding office.

The annual carnival has always been enthusiastically greeted by the public, and has never been a disappointment to its patrons, so naturally the Elks fire anxoius to surpass their past efforts. COMPANY WILL DRILL FOR OIL NEAR WINSLOW (Continued from Page 1, Section 1) Mr. Ryan picked up a book con taining maps showing U. S. geo logical surveys and turning thru it, showed that the geologists have mapped great Pennsylvania and Mississippi limestone areas in this county, the same geological forma tions that exist in the big oil bear ing fields to the east—the same as in the largest fields in Kansas, Ok lahoma, and Texas. “Three months ago people laugh ed at the belief some had there was oil in Utah,” said Mr. Ryan. “Well, they have brought in one of the biggest producing wells in the country there. We’ll have wells like that here.” Mr. Ryan has been spending some time in the field looking over the situation. Ryan, who was going through this part of the country several months ago, was so favor ably impressed with the topography of the country with indications of oil that he got off at Flagstaff to carry on investigations. Much of the land under consideration is owned by the Babbitt interests. It is a well known fact that oil men and geologists have been fa vorably impressed with the coun try and the exploration of the structure by the big oil concerns would mean that the field will be proven within a comparatively short length of time. Twelve New Cases Os Contagion Are Reported in State PHOENIX New cases of con tagious diseases developing in the state during the -week ending July 26 and reported to the state board of health totaled 12. according to a report issued by the board. o S.OOO acre feet water can now be stored for use on farms in west end of Casa Grande Valley, since completion of reconstruction work on Picacho reservoir. THE WINSLOW MAIL TAYLOR PIONEER DAY FETE DRAWS 2,000 VISITORS With almost every resident of the southern end of Navajo county present, and with a crowd of visi tors estimated at almost 2,000, the Annual Poineer Days celebration at Taylor, held last Friday and Saturday, closed after the dance Saturday night with the record of being the most successful celebra tion ever held in that town. The two-day program left not a dull moment from early Friday morning until late Saturday night. Friday was rodeo day, with a complete program of cowboy sports and competition all day, and was followed by a dance Friday night. Reports state that the dances on both Friday and Saturday night were so well patronized that loco motion was difficult. Saturday started with a ball game between the Taylor team and a picked team, a barbecue at 11:00 A. M. followed, then a foot race betwen Jess Pierce of Taylor and J. R. McEvoy, of Holbrook was the feature of the af ternoon, and the big dance that night wound up the festivities. The Whiteriver Indians were supposed to have opposed Taylor in the ball game, but they failed to show, due to insufficient notice. Six steers and six sheep furnish ed the main item on the complete barbecue lunch that was served to ||L m A Whole Week of (f\m : C| Market Department Specials IMulllilLiJ!.

The race was scheduled for 1:00 P.

Frank Armstrong and A. C. Butler, of Mesa, and Merle Hohn, of Wins low, were not allowed to enter the contest. Armstrong was the winner of the race in Snowflake, with Hohn taking second money, and both were counted on to place in the Taylor race. WINSLOW TO HAVE NEW FIRE TRUCK SOON IS BELIEF Although the motion to purchase a fire truck for Winslow was de feated by a vote of three to two in the recessed council meeting Mon day night, those behind the move ment believe that the time is com ing closer when all objections to such a purchase will be overcome, and the city will have the fire pro tection it deserves. Their belief is based on the fact that no objection was raised either by the people or by the Santa Fe to the item for $2,- : 000.00 included in the budget for 1 this purpose. Also a majority of i the council have unofficially ex- i pressed themselves as in favor of buying the fire truck, while some i believe it should be postponed for awhile. , This matter, which was by far the most important to come before the meeting, arose after a letter from J. D. McCully, division super intendent of the Santa Fe, had been read. In the letter, Mr. McCully | explained why the turning on of i the railroad’s high pressure pumps at the roundhouse had been delay ed at the time of fires which oc curred here recently. According to several railroad employees who have been interest ed in the matter, a misunderstand ing of the proper method of com municating with the roundhouse lias caused this delay. A device that connects with the power plant offices at the roundhouse is lo cated in the fire department room at the city hall, and it has been the understanding of city employ ees that this call was only to be used when the assistance of the railroad fire department was need ed. Railroad men assert that this alarm was intended to be a signal to turn on the pumps. However, even with the high pressure on, the stream of water available for fire-fighting is hardly sufficient to check a fire of large proportions, it is pointed out, and the difference between such pres- A Whole Week of FRIDAY, JULY 30,1926 sure and that afforded to a modern fire engine equipped with a pump is so great as to afford no compar ison. The motion to buy the first truck was made by ex-Mayor Doug las, and was supported by C. D. An derson, with Councilman Black and Evans voting against the proposal. Mayor A. E. Gillard cast the decid ing vote against buying the truck. The opinion of those who opposed the purchase was that it would be best to wait until another fire had occurred, to test once and for all the efficiency of the regular Santa Fe high pressure in the mains. It was pointed out by Mr. Douglas that such waiting might result in a really disastrous fire, one that might in a short time destroy prop erty 'Whose value would be more than the cost of the new and mod ern fire equipment. Owing to the misunderstanding concerning the alarm, a new ar rangement was made between the city fire department and that at the roundhouse, whereby the city partment would answer the six alarm boxes located inside the city limits ,and the roundhouse fire de partment would answer the six boxes located in or near the shops. The thirteen alarm, which is box number 34, is the one located in the city hall, and which is to be pulled to notify the roundhouse that extra pressure is needed. When this box is rung, the siren at the roundhouse will blow for one min ute to warn of fire.
