It is the American Way of
Getting Up Steam
FOR ENGINE OF PROGRESS
The Application is Made to
the Late Territorial Fair.
Nothing Was Perfect
and Nothing Was Ever so
It is the privilege of every American
citizen to kick when things don't go to
suit him. That is the chief advantage
of being an American citizen, for
whether the people rule or not, nobody
can keep them from kicking. Just now
everybody is kicking about the. fair.
And why shouldn't they, so long as
they are good natured about it? That
is the only way to make a better fair.
The last fair did not go right and
neither did any other fair for that mat
ter, and the bigger and better the Ari
zona fair becomes, the more there will
be to kick about. So far as can be
learned there wasn't a perfect man or
"woman on the fair grounds during the
whole show; not even among the hard
est kickers. But after all it was the
biggest and best fair ever held here
and mighty few better ones were ever
held anywhere, though there have been
many larger ones in some of the big
But after all there hasn't been a kick
hiard that was spoken in malice nor a
charge that intended injustice was
done to anybody, by anybody, and that
is saying a whole lot, for as big a show
as the fourth Arizonafair proved to be.
Kvery criticism The Republican has
heard offered, has been founded on the
desire of the critic to see things done
better if possible next year, profiting
by the experience gained, and has not
been an arraignment of anyone's short
comings, more than a difference of
opinion as to Judgment or expediency.
Someone has to be in charge of things
on an occasion like that and there were

FACTS FOR SICK WOMEN, j
For thirty years Lydia E. .fink-;
ham's Vegetable Compound, made j
from roots and herbs, has been the i
standard remedy for female ills.
and has positively cured thousands of !
women who have been troubled with !
displacements, inflammation, ulcera- i
tion, fibroid tumors, irregularities, i
periodic pains, backache, that hear- i

moral, and that is that after all the j
revenues that maintain the fair come !
from but two resource. One is the j
territorial treasury which furnishes on- 1
ly-the smaller part of the expense j
money, and the rest is the great big )
public which digs up at the gate, not j
one day in the week but every day in J
the week. The public likes to see the
exhibits, but if that were all there was ;
of the fair one day's visit would dis- j
pose of it. !

after day, the people must be ente--1
tained, for observing people know that ,

benefit of his or her department i
of which was laudable in its p
eil officials in the various departments,
that ever gave up a week or more of
their good time to a public enterprise
without remuneration, to say nothing
about another half a hundred or more
v.ho were paid for their subordinate
services and earned every dollar they
got. Most of the kicking was done by
one department against another, or
against some official, merely in the
hope of getting some favor for the
: and all
even if irritating for the moment.
Unfortunately there were limita
tions to the powers of everybody, even
the commissioners who were forced at
a,I times to cut their garments accord
ing, to their cloth, and therefore forced
to Deny many requests they would have
complied with gladly if they could.
Concerning the labors of this army
of v orkers who did so splendidly, and
who are entitled each and everyone to
the congratulations of the public, it
might be said that The Republican
could find fault with something in each
of the departments if it wanted to,
could suggest something that it be
lieves would be an improvement and be
entirely impersonal in the matter also,
but it appreciates their limitations. It
is possible some people could find fault
with The Republican too. by compar
ing Its fair week work with that of the
great metropolitan dally papers on si
milar occasions, but it is sincerely
hoped they will not, for even The Re
publican has its limitations.
Some little review of the kicks may
be profitable to all, and help in better
cooperation and better exhibits next
year. A lady standing in the Woman's
department said, "I'm not going to
spend three months on a piece of nee
dlework to bring to the fair when the
best I can get is a 12 premium." A
gent over In the cow sheds said "sup
pose I do take a premium, ft costs me
more to bring my stock here than the
blue and red ribbons both bring nie.
They ought to offer prizes that would
be an inducement to work for." .The
men In charge of the county exhibits
complained because they had to be di
vided up in the various departments,
dairy, honey, products, etc. A gentleman-
with a young horse who lives here
in the valley says the purses for Ari
zona bred stock are not large enough,
JS00 to $400 is not sufficient Induce
ment, and it was the breeding of good
horses the fair was designed to stimu
late. Another man says it costs $5 or
$10 and a day's work to bring a hog
to the fair and the ribbon is not worth
the money. A poultryman says "I used
to show a half dozen or a dozen coops
of chickens and win on most of them,
so with $3 prizes I could pick up
"no'igh money to pay ine for my, trou
ble." And so It goes U the way
through. Those Interested tn any
branch of the exhibits whatever it is,
feel that they are neglected unless the
inducements are financially remnuer
ative possibilities, or unless the . de
partment they are interested In Is giv
en a little precedence of some sort. And
then all exhibitors want just a little
the best of it on season tickets, all of
which by the way Is perfectly proper
and la alluded to here only to point a .
in an Industrial way. To raise mon- i
ey enough to pay premiums at all the !
public must come through liberally and j
come all the week, and is willing to do i
so if the attractions are worth while, I
but good attractions cost money and j
that is another avenue of heavy ex- j
pense. The only road to success is to j
give the biggest show on earth all the i
time, just as Barnuni did, and the fair)
commission is doing. j
The real criticism to make on the j
fair, is that the people of Arizona have j
not yet begun to appreciate its indi-1
rect value, o many of them think of it I
only as an immediate cash dividend j
proposition. In other words if it costs !
more to make a pie or a shirt waist, to j
exhibit a cow, hog, sheep, horse or i
chicken, than is possible to get back in '
a premium, they want nothing to do
with it. Such good citizens must
change their.' "jas. A fair is never a
direct money maker for the people and
cannot be. Its profits are all indirect,
but in this way the investment is the
best ever made, in Arizona at least
where it has been such a success.
Those who do not appreciate that fact
will have to wait until some other time
for it would take a book to give all the
proofs of the statement. The glory of
a fair premium Is what counts, not the
In the main that argument will no
doubt be admitted, but still the Indivi
dual exhibitor often feels that his par
ticular department ought to have a lit
tle larger share. 4 Some believe too
much Is spent on racing, that the pro
portions are not well maintained. Right
here Is where one gets into deep water
in a diseusT.ion of the subject. It is
the regulation of these proportions that
taxes the astuteness of the commis
sioners. Thus far they have conducted
famous exhibitions and "broke even"
which is more than most fairs have
done, and that is mighty good argu
ment in defense of their judgment.
They have secured horses and auto
mobiles and airships that brought
enough money at the gates to pay the
premiums they guaranteed to pay an
that is a lot better than It would be to
offer twice as big premiums, clip the
amusement feature that much and

dard of the Arizona fair will permit of
no second class amusement. Only the
best will get the money and the best
In some quarters the $1,000 purses
have been deemed too high, as compar
ed with $400 purses for local colts. No
lesser purses would attract the big
horses, for even when they win their
traveling expenses to and from Phoe
nix practically equal the purses. When
the colt wins a purse he was brought to
the fair at a comparatively slight ex
pense and even if it is not a large one
there is as much profit in it for the
owner as there Is in the big purses for
those who win them. And when colts

Tomorrow Morning at 9 O'clock
is destined to be the greatest Bargain Carnival of the year. The accumulation of
Remnants dates back two months. A rushing Fall business, then Fair week, both con
tributed their most unusual quota of Remnants. And at this time of the year we are
far more anxious than usual to dispose of these Remnants. We need the room for Holi
day Wares. So in order to make a clean sweep of them, we have slashed prices right
and left. Cost has not been taken into consideration when marking these

The Republican has not heard the com
missioners express themselves. It has
a right to hope for more liberal treat
ment by the legislature than ever be
fore, for it has demonstrated the suc
cess of the fair and its value to the ter
ritory. There should be a new min
ing building and a new building for
trades exhibits and even a third one
will surely be needed before many
years. The commission does not need
a collnssal sum of money, but Just a
few thousands dollars for permanent
improvements in additionto the annual
support. The money already spent has
proved a fine Investment for the terri
tory, and every Arizonlan who has
made exhibits or otherwise contributed
to the success of the fair, has been well
paid for It Indirectly, whether he ap
preciates the fast or not. Let's all
kick all the time, but keep in good
humor about It, so the kick will be ef
fective instead of merely Irritating.

THE MINING FIELDS
. OF WESTERN ARIZONA
Los Angeles Newspaper Man's Obser
vation After Two Weeks in the Hill.
. C. J. LIneke. a mining writer in the
employ of tho Los Angeles Examiner,
has been In the vicinity of the new
town of Swansea In western Arizona
for the last two weeks on a professionl
assignment. He returned to rhoenix
from there yesterday and will leave for
Los Angeles perhaps this evening.
What he will write concerning this rich
mining section will appear in the an
niversary edition of The Examiner on
December 13th accompanied by many
pictures he has taken during his trip.
Swansea Is located about twenty-five
miles north of Bouse on the A. & C.
railroad and near to the big Clara Con
solidated property of which so much
has been heard In the last few months.
The town is named after Swansea
Wales, thus perpetuating an old histor
ical fact that might be lost sight of oth
erwise by the present or future gen
erations, and that is that the earliest
market for the copper ores of western j
Arizona was the reduction works in
that famous old smelting city across
Concerning the western Arizona min
ing districts Mr. Lincke says he has
formed a most favorable Impression
and feels sure that there is a great fu
ture for western Arizona in a mining
way. He had an opportunity to--see
many properties and yet but a few
compared to the many others he would
liked to have visited if he had had the
rest of the year at his command.
