1 For President
of New Jersey,
THOMAS R. MARSHALL,
T &. f .,
The Newf York Times publishes the
following editorial concerning, , the
new law requiring all' newspapers' to
publish certain facts regarding their
ownership and obligations. The arti
cle Is timely for Arizona because of
attempt of the last legislature to med
dle with the newspaper owners and
publishers of the state.
"In his oplnicri upon the scope and
meaning of the new law compelllns
newspapers to publish statements
showing who owns them and the ex
itent of their circulation, Attorney
General Wlckersham said that "the
provision Is highly penal in its na
turc," since the punishment imposed
for violation is a denial of the privi
leges of the mail. Mr. Wickersham, in
his, letter to the Postmaster General,
continues: "Being, therefore, In de
rogation of common right, the provi
sion should not be construed to cm
brace, anything more than falls clearly
"within Its terms." In the judgement
of the law-officer of the Government,
therefore, this enacted "rider" to an
appropriation ,blll Is "highly penal,'
and the enforcement of the penalty
;ouId be "in derogation of a common
rlghL" This language woud -fee entire
ly appropriate in an opinion treating
of serious offenses. "What is the of
fense, potential or actually committed,
at which Congress aims In this law
There Is no offense charged, either
grate or trival. Congress seeks only
to find out and make public the names
of tho editors and managers and pub
lishers, and of the owners of news
papers and o"f their securities. Tin
lawmakers of" the land have not souti
to punish an offense, they tavc en
gaged In a spying expedition to get
at facts easily ascertained by those
to whom they are any proper concern,
and the penalties imposel are not,
therefore,,upon offenses, but npon the
refusal to satisfy the curiosity of cer
tain populistlc Senators like Bourne
of Oregon and Bristow of Kansas,
and others of their kind, who, under
their lead, gave" assent to this law.
Mr. James Mr 'Beck in his well-reasoned
opinion reaches the conclusion
that this fs plainly a law to regulato
journalism. The conditions Imposed
upon tho newspapers have no relation
"to iha business of carrying the mails.
A newspaper does not weigh more or
lcs's because ofjftho publication or tne
omission of the. required statements.
"It Is, therefore, obvious," gays Mr.
jBecfc, "that the act Is intended to reg
ulate journalism and not the mails."
What Constitutional power of regula
tion over journalism has Congress?
Publications or articles of an Immoral
.nature or that are prejudicial to the
public health.: and! the public welfare

transportation 'whether by mall or
otherwise. Very 'few. If any, of the
jbewspapors ,at which this "highly
penal" statn'to is directed offend In
M 1 ft'
, any of these-partlcularf. They are not
Ilmmoral or Injurious to health. It Is
. ... .71
at the Postofllce 'at Bisbee, Arizona,
equally plain to every man who has
common sense, and is therefore not a
Populist, that thejiewspapers are not
prejudicial to public welfare. It may
be surmised that this "rider" originat
ed in the belief, present to the mind
of Bourne or Brlstow, as it has been
present to. Jhe mind of Bryan and
Roosevelt, that some or many newa
papers, great or small, covertly owned
or controlled byWall Street or the
"interests," are . preaching doctrines
contrary to. the canons of Populism
and the New Nationalism, and, there
fore, are prejudicial to public welfare.
Here at length we are on the trail
of a"n offense, an offense, at least, in
the eyes of 'Bourne and Bristow and
TEST OF COMMISSION
There are two Kansas Cities.
?sas City Mo., according to the census
of 1910, hai a population of 24S.331.
This is the Kansas City, of course,
that Is the more widely known. Kr.n
sas City, Kan., ls in reality within
the' metropolitan district of Its Mis
souri namesake, 1s divided from it by
an Imaginary line, has many interests
in common with' it, and, according to
the census of 1910, has a population
of $2,331. It outranks nearly all the
ether, American cities of less than
'00,000 Inhabitants. As an evidence
of Us 'itrJKy it might be mentioned
that It las more than doubled its
populat.un In the last twenty years
and that its percentage of gain in
the last decade was. 34.2. Two years
ago this city, dissatisfied tvilh the
old Ej-btem of 'municipal govtrnraen:,
adopted the commission plan. I.) ac
eomplli'irrents since then are worthy
of rutc a; illustrations of what mr"
be done under a simplified asum of
It was admit .edly in a -bad way,
generally pfakiug, at the time the
change was made. In the two yeara
"chaotic conditions," to uso th?
phrasp ol the Kansas City (Mo.) Star,
ha-.e been cleared, the city has estab
lished Itself upon a sound financial
.basis, it has built a new city hall and
a new municipalfllgbt plant, and prac
tically rebuilt its water plant Not
withstanding an increase in Its muni
cipal expenditures of over $1,000,000
and a general Improvement in the
public service, the tax rate has been
reduced to6"" cents on each ilOO of
valuation, or within 6.1 cents of the
lowest rate paid;in the community In
Furthermore, efficiency in cverr d-
fiartment of the city government has
been Increased. The municipality Is
conducted In a businesslike manner
and with regard solely to -tho inter
ests of Its people. The public wel
fare is the first consideration. Under
"the commission form of government
in Kansas City, Kan, and elsewhere,
the term of public welfare has taken
on a new meaning. It is no longer
confounded with the welfare of those
who reside in wards, reproscntod by
the most active aldermen, for tho
ward system of representation Is
'eliminated. It is understood as n
lerm embracing- the whole people of
tho community, regardless of r-digrr-oorbood
of sectional or political fines
and regardless, also, of "pull" or fav.
oritlsm. Whenever and wherever
eommiE.on' government Is honestly
and capably administered, the story is
the same, and It Is one thct is full
last month an artlclo in the Ue
view announced the visit of J. C.
Goodwin, manager of the Mineral de
partment of the State Fair and hid
request for exhibits from Cochise
county, not alone developed mines but
from developing properties and pro
spects. That article stated that such
exhibits might bo sent to the Com
mercial club whence they -would be
shipped to Phoenix without cost to
the exhibitor there to become a part
of the permanent exhibit.
Win stated that the desire
obtain specimens of approximately
fifty pounds each in weight
Thus far there have been no re
sponses from the Warren District An
exhibit from Tombstone has been
promised but the property owners
hereabouts aro falling to take advan
tage of the opportunity to give their
claims some publicity not otherwise
It is an ever recurring source, of
complaint to tho owner of a non-productive
property that he cannot gel
In touch with people Interested In
mining. It is difficult as any inlnlns
man win state, but there Is offered
hero the opportunity of putting ore
from such properties where it will be
seen by all exhibitors at the State
Fair, not this year alone but in future
years. This the owners of nearbv
properties can do with little or no
expense, the bringing of specimens
to town and the turning them oer
to the fair mineral department
through the commercial club.
Bisbee lays just claim to its great
ness as a mining district Not all of
tho claims by any means are held by
large companies. It is true that the
impression prevails that such is the
case and to remove such impressloj
tho Missouri system of showing must
be brought to bear. It is urged that
the time for sending an exhibit Is
short and tho opportunity for an ex
hibit this year will not wait The fair
commission want Cochise county well
represented and are hopeful that in
terest of mining men may be aroused
in the mineral exhibit.
The official returns of the primary
election held last month discloses
that Wiley E. Jones, W. T. Webb and
John R. Hampton have been chosen
for the democratic clectorial ticket
Mr. Hampton finally winning over
George Babbitt by Gl votes.
Hon. Carl Hayden was nominal:'!
as the democratic candidate by a vote
of 3614 which may bo taken as tho
total democratic vote in the state and
which shows a very low tide of po
litical interest in Arizona.
Mr. Hayden had no opponent in the
primary, as his first service in con
gress has been entirely satisfactory
to his constituents of every po.ltical
affiliation. He demonstrated in Wash
ington that he is a hard worker and
that bo was quick on all occasions to
see where the best Interests He.
While Mr. Hayden lays no claim to
oratory, he, on several occasions ad
dressed the bouse on matters in
which he and his constituents were
specially Interested, demonstrating an
ability to gather and present data In
a convincing manner. Being a new
member much of his time was requir
ed in getting-acquainted with the var
ious governmental departments where
much of the real work of a congress
man is accomplished. He has at all
times been prompt to give his assist
ance when Sailed upon to democrats,
republicans or those of other political
Hayden is a native son of Arizona
and was in public life in Maricopa
county for many years before being
called on to represent the new state
In congress. He knows every niche
of the state he represents and ho
knqwg the conditions and ( the various
Industries jand' what' Is' requires ft
tneir further development and his
loyalty and patriotism is a guarantee
that he will overlook no opportunity
to keep Arizona and Arizona pcoplo
and their Interests.
The re-election of" Carl Hayden -fs
an assured fact and it is well lot Ari
zona that this is so.

A SOCIALIST PIPE DREAM
(Albunueraue Journal i
Senator Fall is quoted In dispatches
from1 El Paso as ehanrlnrr onrlaHat

revolt In Mexico. Senator Fail was
quoted some time ago as charging the

he will deny tho one relative to the
socialists, who, it Is said ho alleges,

There have been several attemnts
to establish a particular brand of gov

While the number of cases of in
fantile paralysis in 1911 was not
nearly as largo as that in 1910, yet
the collected statistics show that the
disease was widely distributed
throughout the United States. Th-s
number of reported cases In 1910 was
5,861, with 950 deaths; In 1911, 1.931
cases with 440 deaths. These fig
ures are taken from the reports of
states in which the disease was re
portable, and from the printed -bulletins
of some other states. The le
port compiled by the bureau of tho
census from the registration area
shows that the number of deaths for
1910 was 1,459. The data, however,
are Incomplete, and therefore tho
number of cases was undoubtedly con
sidsrably larger than these figures In
dicate The deaths are probably more
completely reported than tho total
number of cases These figures, ho-v-eier,
tear out our previous knowledge
that the disease has alternate acttvf
and more or less quiescent periods,
owing to lack of susceptible individ
uals or to tho attenuation of the in
fection. Both causes probably oper
ate. Tho Journal of the American
Medical Association urges an exten
sion of thei registration area to all of
the states, -and the securme of com
plete reports, which would no doubt
greatly increase the number of re
ported cases and would give valuable
aid in the study of tho disease.
