From All Indications Monday Will Be the Biggest Day in
the Annals of Tombstone, and Will Mark the j
Beginning of An Era
Monday will be a gala day in the history of
Tombstone, and according to the committee will
far surpass anything that has ever been attempted
in the way of a. celebration in the Old Camp. The
committees appointed by Mayor Kuchenbecker and
sub-committees have worked unceasingly for the
success of the celebration for the entertainment of
the Cochise county cattlemen when they meet here
Monday and Tuesday, and that it will be a success
can be judged by the program arranged, and the
money collected for the prizes, etc.
All this week the committees have been con
stantly on the job making all the necessary pre
arrangements, and this afternoon or tomorrow will
see their labors completed. Several thousand visi
tors are expected in the Old Camp during Sunday
and Monday, and necessarily accommodations will
be needed for them. The committee has requested
that all spare rooms be listed with the chairman,
so that there will be no hitch in this important mat
ter. All avaiable automobiles in the city arc re
quested to be donated at least for a short time to
the committee for the parade, and for showing
visitors about the city. Decorations should be on
every building residence and business. Flags and
bunting are the more appropriate, and all auto
mobiles will carry at least one flag flying from the
radiator, while in the parade all should partici
pate. The program of sports, both for the children
end grown-ups, appears in another column, while
the official programs will be distributed to every
body. There will be music galore. Three of the best
bands in the State will be here to furnish music,
while for the dancing, at Gage Hall and on the
pavements, the band orchestras will furnish music
that will make even the oldest delight to trip the
Troop D, Ninth cavalry, from Fort Huachuca,
will be here and engage in army maneuvers, bare
back riding and other crack stunts of picked trick
riders, Captain Kennison and Lieutenant Brooks
in charge. This feature of the program will be a
treat for every one, and will aid in making the day
one worth while.
Committees to care for strangers, looking after
various details, have all been appointed, and if
any one is slighted or misses anything it will not
be the fault of Tombstone.
Tombstone will throw open her doors to the
cattlemen and visitors, and we want them to take
possession of the town during their two day’s stay
Tombstone has promised one of the best times
of her ability and she’s all ready for the occasion.

The sheriff also made the statement
that the recent $10,000 suit brought
against him in connection with the

only a move by those opposed to th e
prohibition law to intimidate him and
