Arizona Champion Newspaper October 16, 1886 - Tinker, George, editor - 1886. 
Flagstaff, Arizona 1886 - A scarce early issue of the Arizona Champion from October 16, 1886. Tears up to two inches, chips, penciled margin notes, and margin dampstains. Leaves are separated. One editorial discusses how Geronimo has been more popular since his surrender than before it, with another report from a former governor stating that General Miles' conditional surrender was best for peace. There is a notice from early Grand Canyon tourist guide and developer John Hance stating his claim to land at Grand Canyon. Another column answers the question "Are Cowboys Degenerating?", and one article argues that Flagstaff really needs a bank. Two other columns feature the illustrated brands and a reward proclamation for the Mogollon Live Stock Protective Association, with the brands of many well-known early Flagstaff ranchers. A timetable of the Atlantic & Pacific Railroad, a company instrumental in the land deals and settlement of northern Arizona, is on the front page. The Arizona Champion was published in Flagstaff from 1884-1891, when it became the Coconino Sun. The paper recorded much on northern Arizona's early ranching industry and development. ; 23 1/2" x 17 1/4"; 4 pp
