A SQUARE DEAL
This government is based upon the fundamental idea that each man, no matter wire* his occupation, his race, or ms religious belief, la en titled co be treated on his worth as a man, and neither favored nor discriminated against because of any acci dent in his position.—Theo dore Roosevelt. VOL. VII.—NO. 6 Phoenix Is Host To A. M. E. Delegates THOMAS MADDOCK IS QUALIFIED IN EVERY WAY FOR GOVERNOR OF ARIZONA AT THIS TIME Despite plagiaristic claims to the contrary he was the first to suggest a practical solution of the Colorado river problem. He courageously ad vanced his Idea when it was unpop ular but most of the candidates and voters are now accepting it. It is logical to presume that Hunt will win in a three way race although he is weaker than ever before. — - - . ■ ..

While others talk “business administration,” “recognition only of merit,” etc, Maddock carried out these ideas for four years in the highway department. He has more democratic and non partisan admirers than any republi can and many of these voters sup port is necessary for election.

INDIANAPOLIS, lnd., September 4 —The very largest real estate trans action of all time involving our ; group ip this city was recently com : pleted when the Madam C- J. Walker I Mfg. Company purchased the north- I west corner of North street, West j street and Indiana avenue for the sum of $58,000. This is a large prop erty located in the heart of the busi ness district, close to the world . famed Soldiers and Sailors Monument and has a most commanding view of ■ the three above named streets which intersect to form six points. On this valuable corner, passed daily by thousands of people, the Madam C. J. Walker Company will erect in the near future a new administration and factory building. Plans are now be ing prepared, and from some of the proposed features, it is to be the most beautiful and by far the best appointed building of its kind in the world today. Neither brains nor money, we learn, will be spared to make it equal to the growing needs of the Walker Company and another fitting monument to the memory of the late Madam C. J. Walker- Fish makes good brain food. Some people ought to eat a medium.sized i whale every morning for breakfast. LOREN VAUGHN ASKS FOR PROMOTION TO THE SUPREME BENCH Perhaps there is no man in Arizona who is more generally known than is Mr. Loren Vaughn, State Corpora tion Commissioner and candidate for the Democratic nomination for Judge of the Supreme Court. Since the be ginning of his political career many years ago, no member of his party in the entire state has been such a consistent winner. Even his friends have been surprised at the over- MgLM a§|. whelming majorities he has alwi s piled up and naturally those friends are sure of his being successful in his ambition to reach the highest i judicial office in our state. His suc cess in the past is also making his opponents wonder if he isn’t carry ing a rabbit’s foot concealed some where about his person, and in glanc ing back over his record they find nothing to relieve their anxiety. Mr. Vaughn has made an excellent record in the office which he now holds and is, professional colleagues say, eminently qualified to fill the position of Judge of the Supreme Court with credit to himself and dig nity to the position. Mr. Vaughn has a pleasing person ality and in a strenuous campaign which he is now making throughout Arizona is constantly adding to his large number of friends. HON. SAMUEL WHITE WELL QUALIFIED FOR JUDGE SUPERIOR COURT Probably no attorney in Arizona has better qualifications for a judici ary position than has Judge Samuel White, who is seeking the democratic nomination for Judge of the Superior Court of Maricopa County. This is the opini.on that Is being expressed by his colleagues in the profession, by business men of the county and others who have become acquainted with him during his residence in Phoenix. A deep student, experienced in the law, of fine judicial bearing and j pleasing personality, there can be no question, say those who know Judge White best, of his fitness to adminis ter justice and uphold the traditions of our Courts. Mr. White was born in Georgia and is a typical southern gentleman with all the graces of personality that the term Implies. He received his education at Mercer University, a Bapitst Institution, and at the Uni versity of Tennessee. He left his home in Georgia in 1885, having just been admitted to the bar of that state, and removed to Oregon, where he practiced law for more than thir ty years, or until 1918, when he en tered the World War, serving as Ma jor in the Judge Advocate • Generals i department. Following his discharge from the army, Judge White came to Phoe nix where he established law offices and has since been actively engaged In the practice of his profession. During that time he has made for himself* an enviable record, and is held in the highest esteem by fellow members of the bar. In Oregon Judge White served as district attorney of the Eighth Judi cial District for six years and for years was on the circuit bench. He was Chairman of the Democratic State Committee from 1901 to 1914, and again from 1915 to 1918. He was was also President of the Oregon State Bar Association from 1916 to 1917. He has been a lifelong demo- PHOENIX, ARIZONA, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 1924 AFRICAN METHODIST BISHOP SAYS SUPPORT PRESIDENT COOLIDGE Bishop W. D. Johnson of the A- M. E. Church, presiding over the state of Texas, visited Philadelphia helping to compile the discipline. Up on being asked to state his opinion on the political question, Bishop Johnson spoke out strongly for Pres ident Coolidge. Said he: “Our people should be interested in that candidate who, if elected, will defend their constitutional rights against all attempts at abridgement ! or other hostile influence. Among the various candidates for the presi dential office I think none more de serving than our present chief execu tive, and it is for him that I urge | every voter to cast his ballot. There 1 are three reasons that prompt me to make this statement. First, Mr. Cool idge’s fairness and honesty. I think j that among the great array of rulers and leaders today intrusted with pow er, there is none who can surpass Mr. Coolidge in honesty of purpose, in courage, or in high devotion to the welfare of his country. Second, in his advocacy of the Dyer anit lynching bill, and also the attitude of the Republican nominee because no no party has done as much for our people as the party in power. From the time the colored man emerged from slavery up to the present mo ment —every worth while privilege granted him, can be traced directly or indirectly to the instrumentality of the Repuclican party. Among all the organizations that constantly laud their efforts in behlaf of our coun try’s welfare, the only one that ever made “Free Men” one of its motives is the Republican party. Whatever amendments and Federal laws we have today protecting the rights of the colored man, we are indebted to the Republican party for these grants; and I firmly believe that any colored man or woman failing to support Mr. Coolidge in the coming election, would not only be ungrate ful for blessings received, but expose himself to new and additional hard ships.” THALHEIMER IS FIRST NATIVE OF COUNTY TO SEEK ATTORNEY POST For the first time in the history of the county, a man born and reared j within its borders is a candidate for I the office of county attorney. Walter J. Thalheimer, the son of Joseph Thalheimer and Anna B. Thal heimer, was born in Maricopa county, Arizona, educated in the public schools of the county, and graduated from Stanford university with the class of 1915 and the Law School ot the .University of Michigan, at Ann Arbor, in 1917. During the World War he served as a “buck private” with the United States Marine Corps. On his dis charge he returned to his native state and opened his present law offices at Phoenix, Arizona. Among the leaders in the spectacu lar race for the Democratic nomina tion toil county attorney none stands a better chance of success than Wal ter J. Thalheimer, in the opinion of those who are in close touch with the county political situation. Mr. Thalheimer has a strong fol lowing who assert that his experience and demonstrated ability in the prac tice of law thoroughly equip him to act iu the capacity of public prose cutor and adviser to the’ people, ana predict his success in both the pri mary and general election. Law enforcement and a square deal for all will be policies of the county attorney’s office placed in immediate effect if Thalheimer is elected, he says. i crat and is a man of ripened experi ence and mature judgment, and party leaders throughout the County feel that if he is elected his official , career will be one which will reflect great credit upon Arizona democracy.

This is attributed largely to the efforts of F. S- Henrich, coun ty assessor. Coupled with this increase In as sessed valuation is a reduction In the iPfjWl • jamgsam llililliilS «gragSag3Sßs3Sg ,11111 II I ,1 IP II 1 F. 8. Henrich, Democratic candidate for County Assessor. , county tax rate of 19% cents. This . reduction, it is pointed out, is due , not only to the increased valuation of i property, hut the strict economy I practiced by the county assessor and other county officials. . During the past year the cash , transactions in the assessor’s office , increased 40 per cent over the pre , vious year. Notwithstanding there , was no increase in the payroll. These facts are being used to good , advantage in support of the candi dacy of Mr. Henrich, who for the , Drat time is seeking election to the . office he now holds, being a candi date in the Democratic primary. , On January 1, 1923, Mr. Henrich was drafted into service by the late G. W. Cummins, as chief deputy as sessor. At that time he was in the employ of the Arizona Title Guaran tee and Trust company. Upon the death of Mr. Cummins it was by the unanimous vote of the board of su pervisors that Henrich was made county assessor, a post which he has ' filled with notable efficiency ever ] since. i J. J. COX CANDIDATE FOR STATE SENATOR MARICOPA COUNTY Probably a majority of the voters i of Maricopa county already know Mr. Cox, and anything we might say in his behalf would be only a reitera tion of what is already well know [ by the public. While J there are many of us who do not agree with him po . litically, there few, if any, citizens i of the county who do not know him, ; to be a fair, upright, hojiest, able cit izen, and even those who are opposed to him for political reasons are unan imous in saying that the democratic , party will show the very best judg ment in nominating Mr. Cox for the . office of State Senator. i TO THE PUBLIC During the past few days some , people have circulated a report that . I am a member of the Camelback i Klan, Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. This report is being put out by my , political enemies with hopes that it . will injure me in my race for sheriff. I wish to state that I am not now and never have been a member of the . klan. If I am elected, I give my prom | ise that I will be sheriff for ALL t PEOPLES of this county, showing no favoritism. GEORGE B. PRUITT, Candidate for sheriff, subject to the Democratic primaries. FOR LEGISLATURE I hereby announce myself as a candidate for the office of Member ot the Legislature, for the 3rd legisla tive district of Maricopa County, sub ject to the approval of the voters In the Democratic primary, on Septem ber 9, 1924.

The response to Mrs. Shirley’s wel come address was made by the Rev. W. T. Thornton, pastor of the A. M. E. church at Douglas, Arizona. Mrs. Edith Lindsey rendered a difficult in strumental selection, following which the address of welcome on behalf of the local A, M- E. church was made by Mr. Jas. A. Green. Mr. Green read from manuscript a few words extending a cordial welcome to the delegates and visitors.

He graciously responded to an encore- The address of welcome on Dehalf of the ministerial alliance was made by the Rev. M. Thompson, pastor of the C. M- E. church. Dr. Thompson in a few well-chosen assured the visitors that our welcome knew no bounds, and that their stay in Phoenix would be a pleasant one. Mrs. M. A. White and Mrs. Lottie B. Shirley delighted the audience with a vocal duet that brought forth much applause. A violin and piano duet by Rachael and Eleanor Smith was well ren dered,, and they were roundly ap plauded. The address of welcome on behalf of the Women’s Federated I clubs was made by Mrs. Lynn Rosa Carter, who is one of our most pleas ing speakers, and knows how to get and hold the attention of her hear ers. Her remarkß were brief, yet lacked nothing in the expression of the cordial welcome extended by the Federated Clubs. The response by Mrs. A. W. Ward was a gem of rhetorical excellence, and easily the keynote speech of the evening. Mrs. Ruby Jones sang a beautiful selection that enthralled the audience and the applause was deafening.
