An Analysis of the Two Petitions by
There has been a great deal said,
both through the newspapers and on
the street, about the petition for the
Center street and Tempe bridges.
The proisition, guaranteeing a bonus
of $50,000 for the Center street
bridge has been, held up to influence
Now before I undertake to make
an analysis of these petitions, I want
to say that I am not a lawyer, but
the gentlemen who drew up the
petition for the Center street -bridge
are lawyers. They are both skilled
tnd able and this petition has been
drawn with as much cunning and
evasiveness as any petition I have
In our Tempe petition, the peti
tioners ask that a bridge be con
structed at Tempe of steel or such
other suitable material as the board
may deem most practical. This Is
what we ask for.
The petitioners of the Center street
bridge ask for a bridge to be con
structed of reinforced concrete steel,
the bridge," including the cause-way,
to be about 3,000 feet long. It seems
to us they relieve the board of sup
ervisors of Judging what would be
the best type of bridge to be buiit or
the most suitable material for its con
struction and it may be that, since
their petition calls for only a rein
forced concrete bridge of a certain
length, if the people vote for thiiP
kind of a bridge, the supervisors may
not have power to construct any
The Center Street Bridge commit
tee parades before the public that
the Center street people have to pay
a bonus of $50,000 of a guarantee for
that amount. Now, this is the part
of the petition that I referred to as
having been drawn with a great deal
of skill and cunning. I cannot find
In the petition where any corporation,
individual or any one has guaranteed
a cent. They start out in their peti
tion by saying that the estimated cost
to Maricopa county shall be about
150,000; the ba'ance of the cost of
the said bridge to be about 150,000,
SL'0,000 of which shall be deposited in
the said county treasury of Maricopa
county, Arizona, to the order of the
board of supervisors of said county
before a contract is made for the con
struction of said bridge. Now, they
have not said that "We, the under
signed petitioners, hereby guarantee
$20.000." it simply states that $20,000
will be deposited to the order of the
board of supervisors before the con
tract is let.
I ask the taxpayers of Maricopa
county if this is a business proposi
tion? Is this the manner in which
the gentlemen of the Center Street
Bridge committee would accept a con
tract to build a bridge? They are too
good business men to ever accept the
kind of a contract that they are try
ing to get the people to approve, to
be accepted by the board of super
"Ten thousand dollars shall be con
tributed in guaranteed labor and sup
plies, which shall be available to the
said county board of supervisors as
by them required in the construction
of said bridge." Now, we presume
that this is the Indian labor that
there has been so much talk about. 1
talked with Mr. Alexander some time
ago and he told me that he had said
to the Center street bridge people.
"If you can get the Indians to con
tribute their labor free on the bridge,
I will furnish provisions for the In
dians and feed for the horses;" and
he said to me, "I will do the same
for the people of Tempe, if there is a
bridge voted to be constructed there.
How many taxpayers think the In
dians are going to work without be
ing paid? I was in Casa Blanca yes
terday and an Indian to'.d me, through
an interpreter, that the impression
prevailed among the Indians living
southwest of Center street that those
who worked on the Center street
bridge would get a free pass and
those who did not would have to pay
when the bridge was built.
"Ten thousand dollars of which shall
be paid to the county treasurer to the
order or the board of supervisors
within three months from the time
the actual construction of said bridge
shall be commenced." In the first
place, nobody agrees to put $20,000 in
he bank before the contract is let.
Then, after the contract is let. in
three months time nobody agrees to
raise $10,000 and in six months from
the time they begin the construction
of the bridge, nobody agrees to raise
$10,000. I ask the tax payers of
Maricopa county If any of them
would be wi.ling to accept such a
contract. Even if the first $20,000
were raised, the board of supervisors
then must make a contract to build a
bridge that would cost perhaps some
thing over $100,000 on the mere sup
position that somebody was going to
ao 10,000 worth of work and raise
$20,000 more in money. Now, this is
all the contract that we have been
able to find. If I have made any
mistakes, l stand ready to be cor
rected by the Phoenix Bridge com
mittee. JAMES C. GOODWIN.

message from L. C. Hill yesterday
afternoon advising him that an auto

Roosevelt road between Mormon Flat

Miller to go to their rescue with the
Miller machine. Unfortunately, how
ever, the Miller machine was out of
commission pending the arrival of
some repairs from Los Angeles. They
arrived yesterday afternoon, but not
in time to let Mr. Miller make the
trip. ' It is presumed that some other
machine was pressed into service and
played the good Samaritan part to
the stranded ones.

on at present and will surely advance
several points within a few days on

Chicago, May 26. Foreign markets
were all weak and lower today on
rain reports from Russia and Bartion
of the continent. There was great
action in the July prices. The trade
here is not Influenced by the action
of foreign prices as for the present
we are not depending on Europe.
Bradstreet reported a decrease of
3,057,000 bushels in the world's visible
supply. Northwest receipts were
small. Export clearances of wheat
and flour were 326,000 bushels. This
certainly Indicates fast depletion of
supplies. Very bullish reports come
from some of the best wheat counties
of southern Illinois. We feel that be
lievers in wheat at this level or at
higher prices should not be misled by
a choppy market such as we had to
day. We think the only thing to
keep right is to get into these dis

all good drops.
There was considerable effort on
the part of bear forces in the local
trade to start a decline late in the
session, but the move was only partly
successful. Flattering conditions for
the growing crop where weather has
turned warmer are offset by the fact
that corn raisers are not active sel
lers. Receipts today were 407 cars.
Higher prices for hog products
yesterday were followed by further
strong advance today, outside packers
sold early, but the offerings went into
strong hands. Last prices were at a
little reaction, but the market on the
whole showed good buying forces.

Terrific Fight with a Mad Bull.
Under the title of "A Hero's Life,
David A. Piatt, in the June Wide
World Magazine, tells how Nicholas
Oberting, of Lawrenceburg, i. Ind,
fought, conquered and slew a mad
dened bull which had attacked three
boys. "Rushing at the head of the in
furiated bull," writes Mr. Piatt, "he
grasped it by the horns. Bracing his
feet as best he could In the soft earth,
he summoned all the muscular
strength at his command and sought
to overthrow the brute.
"Meanwhile the terrified lads had

Rheumatism Is due to an excess of uric add, an irritating, inflammatory
accumulation, which gets into the circulation because of weak kidneys,
constipation, indigestion, and other physical irregularities which are usually
considered of no importance. Nothing applied externally can ever reach
the seat of this trouble; the most such treatment can do is soothe the pains
temporarily; while potash and other mineral medicines really add to the
acidity of tht blood, and this fluid therefore continually grows more acrid
and vitiated. Then instead of nourishing the different muscles and joints,
keeping them in a normally supple and elastic condition, it gradually hardens
and stiffens them by drying up the natural oils and fluids. Rheumatism can
never be cured until the blood is purified. S. S. S. thoroughly cleanses and
renovates the circulation by neutralizing the acids and driving the cause
from the system. It strengthens and invigorates the blood so that instead
of a sour, weak stream, depositing acrid and painful corrosive matter In
the muscles, joints and bones, it nourishes the entire body with pure, rich
blood and permanently cures Rheumatism. S. S. 8. contains no potash,
alkali or other harmful mineral, but is made entirely of roots, herbs and
barks of great purifying and tonic properties. . Book on Rheumatism and
any medical advice free to all who write.

subjected was terrific. His face, neck
and arms grew purple from exertion,
his body grew tense and rigid, and
his muscles were strained almost to

States. During its successful life of 99 years it has
paid to its policy holders 125 million dollars. Bat
it has come to believe that it owes a broader duty to the public

published a book

which has separate chapters for the householder, the merchant,
the manufrcturer, showing each how the chances of fire may be
reduced in his particular kind of property. It tells how insurance
should be written and points out common errors to avoid. This
book ought to be in the hands of every property owner in

In, this Is it. Animals do not reason;
they never have reasoned; they never
by any possibility can reason. The
wisest of thm do., indeed, get into the
borderland that separates reasoning
from other mental processes; but no
living creature, except man, ever gets
unequivocally across, the line.
All this, to be sure, science had
made out in a general way twenty
years ago. But of late years, betrin-
j ning with Lloyd Morgan, the whole
matter has been gone over again, not
by collecting more or less authentic
anecdotes, but by means of the most
carefully devised experiments. Ani
mals have been placed in situation
i where the stupidest of men would cer-
tainly use reason, an where the ani
mal naa every incentive and every
opportunity to use it. In no case has
the animal done so. Instead, every
time, it has attained its end by a
mental process that looks like reason.
but is not. Today, therefore, - science
not only knows that animals do not
reason; it understands also the men
tal process that, in the more intelli
gent creatures, gives rise to the fal
lacious appearance of reason. At the
present time, we not only know that
no living thing except- man can rea
son, but we understand, in addition,
the something just as good that en
