FRIDAY, OCTOBER 29, 1926
CAMERON RELIES ON LIES FOR HIS RE ELECTION, CHARGES CHAIRMAN STATE DEMOCRATIC CENTRAL COMMITTEE In a scathing statement issued to-day, Louis B. Whitney, Chair man of the Democratic State Cen tral Committee, concentrated a drum fire on the position of the Cameron-for-Senator gang in Ari zona. “Cameron and his managers real ize that their only hope of sucess lies in a division of the Democratic party of Arizona; , therefore, they are industriously and -insidiously circulating stories calculated to destroy Democratic solidarity. “These pussyfooting whisperers endeavor to leave the impression with Democrats that there is such a thing as a Hunt-Cameron coali tion. They pour the poison into the ears of friends of Governor Hunt in an endeavor to make them be lieve that Cameron Republicans arc supporters of the governor. Vote for Proctor i • v Si;:'...

I have been a Democrat in this state for thirty-five years and have always supported the Demo cratic ticket. In this campaign I AM SUPPORTING THE ENTIRE DEMOCRATIC TICKET NOT PART OF IT. When a Pinto asks you if Hunt is supporting Carl Hayden ask him if he is support ing Hunt of Clark.” “It is a fundamental of politics THE WINSLOW MAIL that a minority party may only win through creating disaffection in the ranks of the majority party; therefore, the attempt of Cameron boosters to create a division be tween friends of Governor Hunt and supporters of Carl Hayden is “stone_age” stuff. This cheap trick has grown so threadbare in poli tics that only the most stupid can he deceived by it. “It is an insult,to the intelligence of Arizona voters for the Cameron crowd to presume that men and women of Arizona are to be de ceived by any such a transparent device. The Democratic party in Arizona in the year of our Lord 1926, presents a solid front. It has nominated the strongest ticket in its history, headed by Carl Hayden candidate for United States Sena tor; Lewis Douglas, candidate for Congress; and Governor George W. P. Hunt, who seeks re-election. This ticket is one that commends itself not only to Democrats, but to every patriotic citizen of Ari zona. ‘‘Governor Hunt’s fine adminis tration of the affairs of the state needs no commendation at my hands. The people of Arizona are proud of two facts: “That Arizona's public schools are unexcelled by those of any state in this Union, and equalled rarely throughout the United States; that Arizona’s public roads are the best to be found anywhere in America; that the administrative machinery of Arizona’s state government functions noiselessly and efficient ly; that the interests of Arizona at home and in national affairs and in interstate situations have been courageously and successfully pro tected by Governor Hunt. To The Voters of Navajo County It is to the interests of the voters and taxpayers of Navajo County that they elect a man to the office of County Treasurer that is capable of handling the affairs of the office efficiently, and you will not make a mistake if you vote for TOM ISAACSON on November 2nd. He is a Navajo County man, 28 years of age, and married. He has a four-year high school diploma to his cred it, took a business course at the Northern Arizona Teachers’ Col lege in 1918-19, and has had 7 years of experience in business. He is at present in charge of the Franklin-Overland Company, at Holbrook and has held that position for the past three years. In this time he has done well for himself and for his firm, and thinks his business training well qualifies him for the office of County Treasurer and asks your support when you cast your ballot at the general election. ... TOM ISAACSON I REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE FOR COUNTY TREASURER Because Geo. W. P. Hunt refused to consent to the ratification of the Colorado River Compact until Arizona’s interests and rights were first determined, recognized and protected. California’s representatives —backed by some of the members of the cabinet will use every means at their command to force the adoption of th? Swing-Johnson Bill in the next session of Congress. 4 The legislature of California has been called into special session to ratify the Colo rado River Compact in order to facilitate the passage of the Boulder Dam Act. / Will you keep HUNT on guard or swap horses in the middle of the stream for Clark and his backer, Dwight B. Heard, who favored the Colorado River Compact? Arizona’s-F uture-ls-Safe-W ith-Hunt “Arizona is familiar with the rec ord of Carl Hayden, who for many years has been her champion in Congress. That record is filled with accomplishments in behalf of his state. Not once in all the years of bis service has Mr. Hayden been found lacking the industry or the intelligence necessary to protect, defend, and advance the welfare of his constituents. To elect Cameron and defeat Carl Hayden would be seized upon by Californiia as proof that Mr. Hayden did not represent sentiment in Arizona when be blocked the Swing-Johnson bill in the House Committee on Irrigation and Reclamation. For Arizona to endorse Cameron and the Republi can party, in view of the attitude of the Republican administration in favor of the Boulder Canyon dam, would weaken Arizona’s position on the Colorado River. The defeat ot Mr. Hayden would appear as an en dorsement of the Senate Committe’s action recommending the passage of the Swing-Johnson bill. Camer on was unable to prevent his com He Does Not Falter in the Heat of Conflict! Geo. W. P. Hunt who was denounced by California and Arizona advo cates of the Colorado River Compact as “a dog in the manger.” mittee of the Senate from recom mending the Swing-Johnson hill, and his was a Republican commit tee, and Cameron claims to have a great influence with the Republican party, but a Democrat, Carl Hay den, was able to convince in the House a Republican committee that the Swing-Johnson bill should be pigeon-holed, and in the pigeon hole, where Carl Hayden put it, the Swing-Johnson bill now reposes. “It is a notorious fact that the Republican national administration in the fight on the Boulder Can yon dam IS FOR CALIFORNIA and AGAINST ARIZONA. The reason for this is plain. California has thirteen electorial votes Arizona only three. The Republican na tional administration needs Califor nia and is willing to throw Arizona to the lions. “I am thoroughly convinced that the efforts of a desperate Cameron crowd to attract Democratic votes by whispered promises of trades will meet on election day with the smashing rebuke so justly deserved. WHY? PAGE THREE WANTS VOTES HERE BUT HAS PRINTING DONE IN CHICAGO Prescott —Arizona is a good place to get votes.but Los Angeles and Chicago are good places to get job printing . Evidently this is the philosophy of the go-getter of Ari zona, who goes to get flaming red posters and nice, pretty pictures ot' himself on cardboard from the print shops of those two cities. In the window of the go-getter’s head quarters in Prescott this week there hung a circus poster, printed in Vermillion, telling of the mighty accomplishments of Ralph Cameron for Arizona, and calling him by his nickname, invented by a press ag gent in Philadelphia. The poster was printed' in the shop of the Maj estic Show Print, 2275 West Pico Los Angeles. Side by side with this flaming ballyhoo was a modest white pla card carrying a replica of the go getter’s classic countenance. This was printed in Chicago, according to the imprint thereon. One State Candidate Spends No Money Yet In Election Campaign Phoenix—J. C. Callaghan, Demo cratic nominee for state treasurer, holds the unique record of being the only candidate for a state office who so far has spent nothing in campaigning, according to the re cord of expense statements filed with Janies H. Kerby, secretary of state. Callaghan, unopposed for the office, filed his statement Monday. Other expense statements filed were; E. S. Clark, Republican for governor, $351.49, contributions $3- 11.51; R. L. Stallings Republican for mine inspector, $285; Tom C. Foster, $271.25, contributions $75; Alfred Gale, Republican for attor ney general, $151.75; Lewis Doug las, Democrat for congressman. $7- 49.99; Anna Collins Frohmiller. Democrat for state auditor, $11.50; Governor Hunt, for re-election $425 o DESECRATING THE GRAVEYARD Senator Cameron is stretching himself over more territory. Now he avers that, “Me’n Charley Akers and ‘Bueky’ O’Neil made the main line come through Phoenix.” Luck ily for Cameron both Bucky O’Neil and Charles Akers are dead. Dead men tell no tales. If it comes to a show down, we have no doubt that Ralph will drag in the names of the late General John C. Green way and the late President Harding as bosom friends whom he, Cameron, helped out in the past. A man must he in desperate straits when he is willing to desecrate the grave yard with the hope of gaining votes for his own personal use.- Coconi no Sun. A man was recently fined for motoring backward at a high speed. It is thought that a pedestrain he had grazed on the forward journey had sneered derisively.
