I'm sure Wyatt liked the idea of partnering with such a successful politician as W. A. Freeze was in Arizona. Before Phoenix Freeze had been associated with Morris Goldwater in Prescott (1890) in the Cabinet Saloon, among other things.

        He was the Benbrook brother most recently involved in Salt Lake sporting industry. I learn that Freeze actually went up with both Benbrook brothers, together on the steam-ship "Ohio." No mention of... more
