, PHOENIX —Carl Hayden, Demo
cxat4a candidate for U. S. Senator,
Wednesday expressed his entire
satisfaction with the state of the
campaign, and predicted an over
whelming victory for the entire
Democratic national, state and
county, tickets.
“I have just come into Maricopa
county where I shall spend the re
mainder of the week after having
covered the northern and southern
portions of the state,” said Mr.
“Everywhere that I have gone I
find Democrats solidly united. Ef
forts to drive a wedge into the
Democratic forces, engineered by
Republicans, have everywhere been
repulsed. Democrats know that the
only chance Republicans have to
win in Arizona is to split Demo
cratic forces. This scheme is so
transparently ridiculous that it has
failed to make the slightest im
‘ Democrats this year are giving
expression more than ever they
have before to their determination
to vote the ticket straight from top
to bottom.
“The election of Governor Hunt
by; Splendid majority is assured.
In alt my traveling over the state
thus-far I have barely heard the
nttme of Lewis Douglas’ opponent
in the congressional race. Mr.
Douglas will sweep Arizona like a
prairie fire. The same is true of
James H. Kerby, secretary of state,
Attorney General Murphy, and all
the other candidates on the state
“In our tour of the southern por
tion of the state we spoke at Wil
cox, Douglas, Bisbee, Tombstone,
Patagonia, Benson, Oracle and Flor
ence. Mr. Douglas was with me at
all of these places, and also spoke
at Ray and Superior.
“In the northern part of the state
being accompanied'nearly always
by Mr. Douglas, I held meetings at
Holbrook, Taylor, Snowflake, Wins
lojv, Flagstaff, Prescott, Cotton
wood, Clarkdale and Jerome.
“In none of the communities
which I visited on this tour did I
find the slightest evidence of de
fection among Democrats. On the
contrary, they are standing in firm,
unliroken ranks, militant, determin
ed and unafraid.”
One of the very pertinent ques
tions the voters of this section are
ashing themselves is: “Why did
Senator Cameron have his family,
his private secretary and the mil
lionaire Stetsons locate their min
ing and other claims all in the
Boulder Canyon country for miles
up the river and covering part of
the proposed Boulder Canyon dam
site, if Senator Cameron favored
the Glen Canyon dam site for the
first big dam on the Colorado riv
People who have given the mat
ter consideration believe it is at
least very odd that Senator Cam
eron would take his family and the
Stetsons so far dow-n the river urn
-ftss lie figured to boost that end of
the game.
Os course, Senator Cameron did
boost the Boulder Canyon dam site
tn congress, but did not send any
special sheets from the Congres-
Uioinal Record to this section of
the country under his frank. Con
sequently, the people here are not
Supposed to know of the position
lie took at that time.
« At Yuma recently in his talk,
Senator Cameron forgot, or very
conveniently remembered not to
speak 6f the Swing-Johneon bill or
the Colorado river project.
The people of Yuma are un
doubtedly given to believe that the
interests of the California business
men will be best served in getting
the Swing-Johnson bill over for the
Boulder Canyon dam if Cameron is
... TJI north, and in the rest of Ari
zona, Cameron is for the Glen Can-
Ton dam site.
Being a “poor pioneer” with
plenty of traveling expenses, Sena
tor Cameron forgets that news
dgencies do not use the old burro
express he forgets that the peo
ple of the state are informed daily
of what is going on throughout the
State; a man must be square in all
corners of it, or be asked why he
shifts positions in different locali
The Senator told his Flagstaff
Audience that he had been charged
,"jyith trying to steal she Colorado
river, and, that he would be glad
to steal it and give it to Arizona.
We would suggest that it would
.Ije a great stunt on his part now,
it he was sincere in his statement,
to renounce all claims to the “min
thg claims” located down around
.Boulder Canyon to the government
rtr-wliich his family, private secre
tary and the millionaire Stetsons
'3re claiming.
. The federal government has cases
pending against this outfit, asking
them to show cause why the claims
‘Should not be cancelled. Or at
least the government charges the
,elaims are illegal.—Coconino Sun.

Candidate for Congress
Utterly lacking any other basis of
attack, some of the opponents of
Lewis W. Douglas, Democratic
nominee for Congress, are now re
ferring to him slightingly as “a
mere kid,” or a “stripling.” They
intimate that he is too young to
find his way about in Washington
and that it would be folly to send
an inexperienced boy to represent
Arizona there.
This is about as weak a line of
argument as could well be imagin
ed. It is true that not many years
have passed over Douglas’ head,
but he lias made them all count
and has behind him a record of
achievement that can be matched
by few if any of his critics, even
though they be twice his age.
When the United States got into
trouble across the water, Lewis
Douglas was not too young to vol
unteer for service. The fact that
he was decorated for bravery in ac
tion, and came out with the rank
cf captain, indicates that his youth
was not such a. \- handicap tight
years ago.
Since coining home; Lewis Doug
las has spent a year in teaching po
litical economy; not that he con
templated a career as an educator
hut that he desired to ground him
self thoroughly in the fundamentals
of government. He has worked un
derground as o xniney and a muck
er. He has represented Yavapai
county in the lower house of the
State Legislature, and there he was
one of the firsts to‘ perceive the
danger that lay in unreserved rat
ification of the Colorado compact.
Since a legislator,
Lewis Douglas has made a success
of two mining ventures that older
and presumablv wiser her Is de
clared could not possibly be mode
to pay their way.
As a campaigner—not as a poli
tician, for he isn’t that ar.d never
can be —Lewis Douglas ..has t.’ is
year impressed the people of Ari
zona with '•’fmr&flty, 'his com
mon sense, Lis habit of thinking
straight and clear and of expr los
ing his conclusions in words that
cannot possibly be misunderstood.
More than that, he jjias impressed
them by his rexusal t<i trim his sails
or indulge in glittering generalities
and high-soumlkig promises to win
votes. In brief, he is sensible,
straightforward and honest.
Aside from his youfh, the gravest
viction of any and every person
violating any offgßie provisions of
Title 4, Part 1 of the Penal Code,
such rewards to be paid until the
total amount hereafter expended
reaches the amount of $1,000.00.

accusation made against him :s that
ho is wealthy. This is also true.
He inherited a comfortable for
tune that lias not been dissipated
m riotous living nor in foolish in
“estments. As a mine operator he

Lew r is Douglas will devote to the
Interests of Arizona and of the Na
tion the same keen ability that he
bas exhibited in the management
or his personal aifairs, the same in
domitable fighting spirit that he
displayed on the batleficlos ts
Fiance and : n the halls of Lie Leg
islature. His youth, considered in
the light of his past accomplish
ments, is one of the svongest
points in his tavor.
But Mr. Douglas does not pro
pose that the state proceed defin
itely to establish its rights on the
river and its right to tax power and
to make all preparations against
the day when development is start

By Every Quajification-Traiiuiig,
Experience, Character-E. S. Clark
Merits Your Yote for Governor
E. S. Clark is a man of education, common sense, toler
ance and courage. He is an eloquent orator and a
statesman—the kind of a man that will serve both Democrats and
Republicans with impartial justice and bring honor and credit to the
great office of Governor of Arizona.
Forty years of devotion to Arizona’s problems has won
the confidence and respect of the thinking, forward
looking, progressive people of Arizona of all parties, creeds and races.
With Clark as governor, the Colorado River Problem and all others
will be solved to Arizona’s credit and profit.
For a quarter of a century, E. S. Clark has held an envi
able position in the front ranks of the members of the
'Arizona bar. His wisdom, firm justice and human understanding
have wrought mutual understanding and confidence in many critical
situations. The peopje who are supporting E. S. Clark for governor
are not political job hunters, but men and women of all parties who
know Clark will bring honor and renown to the governor’s office.
It is upon his record of public service and achievements that
your support of E. S. Clark is being urged by men and women
throughout Arizona who want a governor who will work, fight
and WIN for the best interests of Arizona!
Polls throughout the state show a
great swing to Clark . For Arizona’s
best interests vote for Clark.
California, Heard, and Clark are
united in a common cause. Cali
fornia is actuated by her lust of
greed; Heard, by Campbell and
Hoover; and Clark by ignorance
and Heard. Each and every one
knows that before the Colorado
River can be delivered clear of any
encumbrances to California or any
set of private capitalist for ex
ploitation, they must overcome the
opposition of Governor Hunt. This
they have not been able to do. Con-
Clear and able thinking, and not
profit may accrue to the state,
merely an emotional reaction, on
Colorado River affairs will be need
ed on the part of Arizona’s states
men in the ensuing years. And with
Mr. Douglas ’election to Congress
almost a certainty, Arizona can be
assured of able representation in
that direction.—Arizona State Jour
sequently they are exerting every
effort to heat Governor Hunt, and
abolish, what they opprohriously
term, Huntism.
But they have not truthfully de
fined Huntism, because, perhaps,
truth is a language they do not
Huntism is more than a partisan
policy. It is something more than
a creed. It is beyond an economic
force. But if it is to be called a
policy or a creed, it adds another
name to honesty, justice and inte
grity, and dignifies them with kind
ness, benevolence, and human un
Huntism represents all that is
best in government of a free people
and is no less than the practical
application of the Golden Rule to
the affairs of the state.
Huntism is the antithesis of the
policy of California, the greed of
Heard, or the creed of Clark. Hunt
ism saved the heritage of the peo
ple of Arizona in the Colorado Riv
er when California, Heard and
Clark, and others r.ufcsei\ient to
their wishes as represented in dol
lars, were exerting their supremd
efforts to accomplish the ruin of
Arizona by the ratifications of the
Santa Fe compact. Huntism has
thwarted the enemies of the state
in their successive attempts to be
tray Arizona. These are a few of
the reasons why Huntism is op
posed by those mercenary interests
that wish to see Arizona deprived
of her sovereign rights and reduced
to a providence of California. Mr.
Heard or Air. Clark would be de
lighted as the Satrap. Huntism is
the very opposite of the idea of the
divine rights of kings, or Heards
and Clarks and Californians. And
rebels against such Satraps.
