I There are but two excuses for ask

JThese two excuses are state pride
and Increased Immigration.
In this case state pride Is a mighty
-.- poor excuse to offer for spending the
' ' ' money of the people. It will be hard
to convince a taxpaer that state pride
Is worth the money it costs In in-

There is jet a feeling of doubt as
to whether the session of the Iegis-
nature which has been called to meet
on1 Frebruary 3 will be charged by
Covernor Hunt with considering the
code revision report which has been
completed by Attorney Pattee. Some
of the members of the legislature ex
press the opinion that the governor
cannot prevent thls consideration
even should he desire to do so. Gov
ernor Hunt is said to have stated re
garding the revision report that there
was n legal question as to whether
it could come before the present leg
islature .or not Surely, If the report
ts to come before the present legis
lature there ,1s no reason why it
should not bo. promptly submitted
when Governor Hunt delivers bis mes
sage to the coming special session.
To leave it for another special ses
sion would mean the loss of much
legislative time, as the convening of
a legislature always requires ilrap
and usually the first w eek passes with.

It will require considerable time to
consider the revision report, but it
will require no more time now than

TWO DEAR OLD BOYS.
The New Year observations of Jo
seph G. Cannon, of Illinois, who is (,
years old, and Shelby Moore Cullom,
of Illinois, wbo is 83, are published In
the Washington Herald. Says "Uncle
"Some good brother might think
that the best resolution one can make
is never to take another drink or to
smoke another good cigar, and never
to loolq at a pretty woman, while an
other man might think, like our good
German brothers, that a stein of teer
is made to be drunk, a pretty girl to
bj loved, and a good cigar to be
"My set of resolutions for the New
Year is that I won't smoke more than
one cigar at a time, and I won't
drink more than is good for me. As
to the girls well, at my time of Hf
'er, I don't suppose It is necessary
for me to make any resolutions about

will be happy, and well and courage
ous. God can give them the health
They will be happy !f they live honor
ably and put forth their best endear
ors. "Let every man live so that be can
face the world without fear of any
thing on earth or In heaven."
Says "Uncle Shelby:"
-I'm not going to juit anything, and
I'm too old to take on anything now.
I don't do any wrong that Is, at
least that I am going to quit. About
all I do is rat mince pie and plum
pudding and I expect to Leep it up.
"I don't srookc. I don't drink and 1
don't chew, and I go to bed early
something like Lincoln.
"Uncle Joe" and "Uncle Shelby" are
two dear old boys who have led tern
perate lives, without being abstemi
ous, and who are young no mattpr
what the calendar says. If all of us
could tamper with temptation as suc
cessfully , and live to be 76 or 82
without suffering any ill effects from
our moderate indulgence, there would
bi no New Year resolutions. And how
much less misery and proverty there
would be In the world!

J One of5thefmenemployed at the
Copper Queen' smelter at Douglas
was locked up In the city Jail on
Monday night where be was found
('.p-ad! Tuesday morning. The man was
intoxicated ana Uw natural conclusion
is that he froze to death. Doctors
gave "heart failure'' as tho cause of
death. A temperature of six degrees
below zero In a tireless cement cell
we should say was calculated to In
duce heart failure as well ns the fail
lire of every other human orgau to
perform Its function. Now we note
Jhat a Douglas carj-nter has been
employed to Install cots In the cells
or the city jail at Douglas. This is a
clear case of "locking the stable door
after the horso Is gone."
This sad Douglas Incident should
be sufficient to impress on all public,
officials the duty of proper care of
prisoners that may come Into their
care or keeping. A prisoner, no mat
ter on what chargehe Is held, is en
titled to a place of confinement where
his life will not be endangered.
Grand old Cochise county stands as
the banner one of the state, both in
wealth and Industry. It had nearl?
one million dollars In the county treas
ury a month ago nnd it is now as
sured that every form of indebted
uess will be wiped out during tho
present ear. It requires a vast sum
of money to keep the schools going;
then there Is the heavy expenditure
for. roads and to carry on the various
courts of the county. Tho report from
the othec of the county treasurer and
tax collector shows that the delln
quent list is low;er in percentago of
tax unpaid than ever before. Cochise
county now pays about one-sixth of
the taxes on which the state govern
ment depends for subsistence.
The Arizona Democrat asks Gov
ernor Hunt to recommend to the leg
islature a law that will compel every
merchant In Arlznona to label all
goods so that when a customer de
sires leather shoes he will not get
shoes with paper soles. The sugges
tion is a good one and the law should
nlso be made so stringent that in fu
ture silk would mean silk, w ool would
mean wool, and leather would meat.

The citizens of Tucson have added
ten thousand dollars to the Y. M. C
A, fund given the city by the E. P.
and S. V. railroad. This brings the
sura to $70,000 to be used for paying
for site and building. Tucson Is the
clearest old town in the' Southwest
and its prosperity Is pleasing to the
many old timers scattered through
Arizona, who first pitched their tents
In the old pueblo. The modern Tuc
son Is filled to the brim with a bust

The automobile controversy now-
going erf between Governor Hunt and
Auditor Callaghan In Phoenix re
minds us of the days when state olfl
cials V-d no such luxuries as auto
mobiles, ,'t also reminds us of tho
fact that nn the occasion when Gov
ernor Hunt was Inaugurated he re
fused all tenders of autos and walked
to the capltol building. We fully
agree with the present disposition of
tin. governor to ride In tho best ma
chine connected with the state admin
istration. The 'enthusiasm with which the
proposition to erect a creditable High
school building in the Bisbee district
has been received by all classes of
our citizens should be very pleasing
t alL The Warren District Commer
cUI club gave this needed improve
ment a good boost at its annual meet
ing this week. The election for an
thorlzlng the required bond Issue tu
raise ;G,000 has been called and It
now looks like the bonds would carry
by practically a unanimous vote.

Tho people of Arizona are struggling

THE MONEY PROBE
The money protte no-tr boing con
ducted by tho house committee on
banking, and currency Is beglnn'ng to
reveal how difficult a task It Is to
erect a scientific monetary system
upon buch an inadequate foundation
as the present sjstem affords. It is
being shown day by' day how intimate
are tho relations between the New
York banks ana the treasury, and ho. v
Interwoven the Interests of the banks
and tho New York stock exchange.
Because of the porfectiy logical re
lations that exist between tho coun
try banks and the New York banks,
thfa country banks are seriously affect
ed when the tide of speculation In
Wall street rises to perilous heights,
and thus the business and industry
pf the whole country are subjected
to embarrassments that ought neuw
to touch them.
That the speculative excesses of
Wall street are a menace to tlfe en

THIS IS SENSIBLE
(Arizona Star )
Arizona has but a certain amount it
can spend becauso the tax levy pro
duces' a limited amount. This money
is needed, every cent of it. In paying
the running expenses of the state and
in bettering Its institutions. To spend
even $50,000 of this money for build
ings at the Pacific coast expositions
Is robbing the state institutions. Every
person interested in any state Insti
tution should oppose the squandering
of the state's money in exposition
THE AX WILL FALL
Tho Republican gets untimely ex
cited over what it terms "the demo
cratlc scramble for office." It Is true
there are -varioHe candidates in Ari
zona, as elsewhere, for the office
under the row administration, "bun
there is neither a scramble nor any
excitement over the matter. The bull
moose organ is trying to convince It-
celf that President Wilson will
permit the republican officeliolders to
serve out their terms. Many of our
officials such as marshals and attor
neys had to te appointed after Ari
zona became a state. The present
incqmbenls do not wish to hold an
other four years, as they realize the
impropriety ot such action, but th
organ can rest Its soul in -eace. the

its pets in due time and the demo

That the Sasco smeller will be
llown in shortly to handle between
400 and 500 tons of ore per day Is
stated in an announcement made by
President . Frank M. Murphy of the
Development company of. America.
The o?e, he said, Is to be shipped from
the company's properties at Christ

In order to put out that tonnage. Tho
smelter has been Idle slnco 1910 when
(he Imperial mine at Silverbeil closed
down, says the Tucson Citizen.
Murphy stated that the work ot
renovating the big smelter is now
practically complete and that little
remains but to fire up the boilers.
At the Christmas workings there
are 14 to 15 faces from which ort
can be taken. The deepest shaft is
down 800 feet.
YOU can use a Rayo Lantern in the

A few days ago a drift was startled
from the 775-foot level of this shaft to
cut the old Las Novios ore boly,
which has produced thousands 'of
tons of rich sulphides. About 300 or
400 feet of drilling will be required
to cut the Las Novlas shoot. Thneo
hundred feet above las Novlas jls
CO feet thick and it is considered
practically certain that the copper
ore extends to great depths.
Almost at once the new drift en
tered porphyry ore. This ore waa
wholly unexpected and adds material
ly to tho possibilities of the mine.
A great amount tif new machinery
ts soon to be installed at the Christ
mas property. One of the improve
ments contemplated Is au aerial tram
to carry the ore from the property
down to the end of the railroad, a
mile distant. "Ultimately there will be
a railroad right up to the Christmas.
Whether this railroad will be a
switchback road or through a tunnel
has not been decided. In either case
Its construction will bv expensive.
Three miles df switchbacks will be
necessary, and to tunnel through the
mountains would cost hundreds of
thousands of dollars.
