CHARLES K. PISHON, First Vice President of the State Association of the B. P. O. E., is the Arizona representative of Cooper, Coate & Casey, wholesale dry goods merchants of California, and makes Phoenix his headquarters. Mr. Pishon was born in St. Louis in 1884, and is the son of Hubbard and Josephine Klaine Pishon, both descendants of French families, the parents of both having been born and reared in France. Mr. Pishon was graduated from the St. Louis High School. took his first position in the stock room of a large dry goods house in that city in 1898, and has since been employed in this line in various capacities, with the result that he is thoroughly conversant with all details of his business. He came to Arizona in 1906, the year in which the firm now employing him was organized, and has since been their representative in the State. He is well known and extremely popular throughout the State in both business and fraternal circles, is one of the most active members of the B. P. O. E., and a member of the Phoenix Lodge. He is serving his second term as Vice President of the State Association. Mr. Pishon has also been most active in the interests of the State Fair, and for the past five years has been Superintendent of Concessions and Amusements. In this capacity his broad knowledge of the State, its people and their tastes has made his work a valuable aid to the general success of the annual fair.

The administration of the present Board of Supervisors of Yavapai has been marked by careful, conscientious and business like methods. The Board is composed of men who have made a success of their own business in widely divergent lines, and who are, therefore, well qualified to handle the business matters of the county, and whose acts thus far have shown careful deliberation and knowledge of general conditions. The Chairman of the Board is one of the early pioneers, one who has been identified with many of the leading enterprises of the State, and who is at present among the prime movers in the development of one of the sources of wealth until recently unknown in Arizona - oil. The same may be said of both the other members of the Board, who have been associated with the industrial life of the State for years, and successful in their own affairs. While advocating economy, they believe in modern business methods, and have been liberal in their appropriations, realizing that Yavapai is a large, progressive county, with need of a large budget to meet the requirements of its rapidly growing schools and other institutions
