tun' in the south that it does in the
north. It preaches the same policv
of finance north anil south. Tt
preaches the same policy of a help
ful protection to all American pro
duction, north or south.
Believes In Protection
"We believe in 'protecting cotton j
and cotton seed products of thej
south and wheat and wool' in the
noith. We believe in protection for
permits souih and potatoes north.
We believe in southern factories,
and northern factories selling to Am
erica fiist and we acclaim an indus
trial south as one of the essentials
to ihe ideal republic.
"I went the self-reliant America,
self-reliant agriculturally, self-reliant
politicallv. That is why I insist
that we shall never accent a league
of nations with the material heart
of a military alliance, to rule the
world by force of arms. North and
south fought because the states of
the south thought they had the
right to withdraw fromi the- union.
The north thought the union to he
indissoluble. , .Then came the conflict
o-er an ambiguity in the constitu
tion. There are a score of ambigu
ities Kn the president's covenant and
he would not tolerate their clarifi
cation by reservations.
DeeD Abiding Faith
"I have a. deep and abiding faith
in American institutions and in the
fundamental principles upon which
they rest. The people, by their con
stitution, have carefully enumerated
the powers of their governmental
agents. Neither agent is superior to
the other and neither owes any de
gree of responsibility to the other.
For either to invade the field of ac
tion delegated to the other is to
usurp the authority of the other.
During tle life of the present ad
ministration this condition, which
the constitution inhibits, has arisen
again and again. Congress, while
under Democratic control, was, with
rare exception, a' mere echo of the
executive. He did not inform them
from time to time respecting the
state of the union as the constitu
tion contemplates;, he told them
what to do."

maintain all decisions and all boun
daries. As to how we are going to do
this is answered by the president
himself in another place in the same
speech, in which he says:
Would Use Force
"'If anv covenants of this settle
ment are not observed the United
States will seid her armies and navies
to see that they are observed. . .
We must not close our eyes to the
fact that in the last anayiais tne m
itary and naval strength of the great
powers will b the final guarantee of
the peace o fthe world.".
"When the president was before the
foreign relations committee, Senator
Knox asked this question: 'Suppose
that it is pefectly obvious that there
is an external aggression against
some power and suppose it is perfect
ly obvious and accepted, that, it can
not be repelled except oy rerce of
of arms, would we be under any le
gal obligation to participate?' The
lcplied to this: No sir. but we wyuld
be under an absolutely compelling
Is Moral Obligation
"I take it that it willnot make very
much difference to the American peo
ple, to the sons and mothers of
America, whether you call it a legal
obligation or 11 moral obligation or
what you call it, if it is an obligation
absolutely compelling and from the
execution of which there is no escape.
Is It not perfectly plain that we guar
antee the settlements and the boun
daries of Europe and that if there is
an actual disturbance of these boun
daries we are under an absolutely
compelling moral obligation to send
our armies and oik navies acics? tl'e
sea Is it not equally plain that we
are carrying out the decisions of
these men representing the whole
world, th? divisions which they made
the boundaries which they establish
ed, and that we are doing so by the
blood and treasure of America?. . .
"The incredible thing about this
whole propositions is that such a
scheme should have ever been seri
ously submitted to a people who have
been trained to democracy and devot
ed to th principles of popular gov
ernment." UNDELIVERED TELEGRAMS.

The steamer James Carruthers.

Anonymous letters, postcards, posters, handbills and
other articles may be expected in the present campaign and
usually meet the utter disregard of the peoole to whom they
may be addressed. This was the reception given to an anony
mous hand bill containing a list of ten questions, directed to
Mit Simms, Democratic candidate for governor, last Saturday
night in Bisbee. The screed was unannounced, unsung and
Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning, however, its
authorship became established. The Cochise County Republi
can Central Committee assumed responsibility for it. It was
time that some authority be placed behind such anonymous
The Republican state organization for months prior to
the primary believed that the Hon. Mulford Winsor would be
the Democratic nominee for governor and built its entire cam
paign structure upon this premise. This campaign was to have
been an attack upon 'radicalism' and attempted resurrection of
"Huntism." With the nomination of Mit Simms, however, the
superstructure was destroyed. A new campaign issue had to
developed and, unfortunately
the land question was decided
In spite of the obvious fallacies of the Republican cam
paign, and in order to meet any
ing answers are given to the
1 . Why are you unwilling to debate the land issus from
the same platform as Governor Campbell and let the people
judge which one is right on this question?
Answer: Mit Simms is a business man and a farmer
not a political orator or debater. Moreover, no ad
ministrative differences have arisen between Mit Simms
and Governor Campbell; but Attorney General Jones,
who has differed from Governor Campbell on this is
'sue, has offered to debate the question from any plat
form. 2. If elected governor, will you retain Big Bill Moeur
on the job as state land commissioner and continue the pres-ent-land-leasing
Answer Waiving the apparent viciousness in the
words "Big Bill Moeur," it is obvious that the Governor
has not the power to name or to replace a state land com
missioner. The present land leasing policy is determin
ed by statute and cannot be changed by the mere dictum
of any governor.
3. Were Wiley Jones and Harry Rpss right when they
wrote Bill Moeur that conditions in the land department had
Answer: Yes." Their opinion, however, was based
upon a forged letter, which Governor Campbell knows
was forged and which he knows caused the original stand
of Harry S. Ross and Wiley E. Jones.
4. Do you approve that plank in the Democratic plat
form endorsing the state land department?
5. .Do you believe in cancelling dummy leases and re
leasing the land in one block with the prior right to release?
Answer: Yes. The prior right to release under
equivalent condition is statutory and therefore not op
tional with the administration of the department.
6. Do you maintain that the state land department has
been administered in the interests of all the people of Ari
7. Are you against a land policy advocated by Gover
nor Campbell which would permit the throwing open of lands
for entry when they become more valuable for agricultural
than grazing purposes?
Answer: No. This involves an economic and not
a legal or administrative question. No difference of op
inion has existed between Mit Simms and Governor
Campbell in the administration of the land department.
8. Do you believe that a governor should stick to his
desk in the statehouse when he can advance the interests of
the state by visiting other cities in Arizona and cities without
the state if necessary?
Answer: Yes. The good Governor Campbell
can do gallivanting about the country and visiting Hard
ing's front porch is negligible.
9. Why are the big land barons manifesting so much
interest in your candidacy? ' ' ' ' ;
Answer: The implied slur at the stock interests of
the state is not in keeping with recorded utterances of
Governor Campbell, but it is to be presumed that these
men and women have had enough of the extravagant
10. What are your qualifications for the office of gov
ernor of Arizona?
Answer: Small in general, but superior, in any
event, to those of Thomas E. Campbell.
