TO KILL ANjOYERTISEBT
Is not Brother Breen, one of
our law-makers, flying in the face
of the Sherman act and provi
dence when he proposes a news
paper combination in restraint of
"trade of foreign advertisers? It is
true thaf the foreign advertiser is
'sometime oppressive in his meth
ods and plays one newspaper
against another. But there are
difficulties in the way of establish
ing an agreement among newspa
pers. Their wares are not like
those of the merchants. A pound
of sugar, a yard of calico or a
gallon of oil in one store is as good
, as the same articles in another.
There can be rio difference except
in the price and an agreement may
be easily reached as to that. The
; expenses of one store are approxi
mately the same as those of many
other of the same size.
It can hardly be said that the
'value of the advertising space in
any two newspapers is exactly the
isame and the expenses of con
ducting newspapers is equally
A schedule might be agreed
upon, each newspaper fixing the
value of its own space for foreign
advertisers. Widely varying as
the rates might be it would not be
impossible to reach an agreement
fon such a schedule. The next
'and most difficult thing would be
jjto get all the newspapers to stick
Jto it. Phoenix Republican.
I Our progressive neighbor is
, fussing with the wrong" end or the
'dilemma. Advertising rates
should differ according to the
value of the medium used. The
trouble is that many newspapers
have all sorts of rates and usually
charge home patrons most. The
advertising shark gets in his work
at a low rate, wants a discount,
'and special position then he
goes after the little fellow and
shaves his bill on ev6ry sort of a
pretext. He puts the ptoceeds of!
all this In his pocket -along with a
commission from the advertiser
and newspaper man. We were
just it) hopes that each one would
use a little "hoss" sense and
refuse to accept a d v e r tising
vfrom shark agencies except on
the newspaper man's own terms
.and be neighborly erough to
advise each other of dead beat and
, shark agencies. Such a system
would soon compel the dishonest
I agencies to either be honest or
I quit the business.

Has Three Ribs Broken
Jack Withrow missed his hold
on a freight train Saturday in the
Williams yards and was thrown
breaking three ribs. He was
wearing a pair of greasy gloves
when he made attempt to board
the moving train. They slipped
and he was thrown several feet.
While he is not enjoying the
cracked ribs and smiles with tears
in his eyes, he is glad he did not
jerk the train off the track and
catch it in his arms as he fell. It

WOOL THIS YEAR
The Arizona wool clip this year
will according to President John
Hennessy of the sheep sanitary
board, who has been paying a
short business visit to this city
from his home in the Flagstaff
district will reach over 6,000,000
pounds. The sheep interests are
in excellent condition all over the
state. The vigilance of the sheqp
commissioners themselves, to
gether with that of the inspectors
and the state veterinarian has pre
vented any inraods into the flocks
of any disease, and this year's
sheep are singularly free from
scabbs or foot and mouth disease,
the pest that keeps the wool men
of other states awake nights.
The record this year is as a
result of this work better than it
has been for years. Secretary
George H. Allen of the commis
sion has kept thoroughly in touch
with the situation, and any sign's
of trouble in any section has been
thus promptly stamped out.
The next annual meeting ol the
commission will be held in Phoe
nix on June 30 next. This was
decided by Mr. Hennessy and Mr.
Allen at the conferences held in
the city during the past two days.
The last meeting vas held in April
1912, this shortl" after the ap
pointment of the new commission,
but it was thought best this year
to make a definite date for the
wind-up of the year's business,
and to keep to it Fiscal years
in many sections efd with the end
of the month of June. The state
fiscal year does, so it was decided
to have the sheep commission
year end thus also. Phoenix Re

A Condition of Vital Interest to
Tresspassing on railroad prop
erty is shown by reports of the
Interstate Commerce Commission
to be a decidedly dangerous past
time. Over 50 per cent of all the
people killed on the railroads of
this county last year were tres
passers, men"T women and children
who had no business or right on
Every day last year fourteen
trespassers were killed over 5000
during the year, an appalling
truth. Contrary to a common
suspicion, only 10 per cent of this
number were tramps or hoboes;
70 per cent were reputable people
who used railroad property as a
thoroughfare, and in spite of
warnings given them not to do so,
and 20 per cent were children
under 14 years of age.
Commenting on this, Mr. N. L.
Howard, Superintendent of the
C. B. & Q. R. R., at Burlington,
Iowa," recently published an open
letter to parents, in which he said:
"Today, somewhere in this
country, two or three little chil
dren have been killed playing
around tracks and cars. So it
was yesterday, so . it will be to
morrow, and so it averages, day
in and day out, through all the
The railroads and their employes
are not callous to the sorrow
caused in this way; on the con
trary, they are doing all they can
to avoid these, the saddest of all
accidents. There is not a train
man or switchman in our yards
who has not time and again ad
monished children against the
danger of "flipping" cars, not
one who does not dread the ever
present possibility of having to
lift some broken body from under
the car wheels. All that we rail
road men can do about it, how
ever, is very little; children con
tinue to come every day to our
yards to play on the tracks, to
hop on the cars, too often to meet
with disaster, because it is im
possible for us to keep an eye on
every one of them or keep them
all away. It is bad enough to
run over grown-up trespassers,
but cannot something be done to
stop killing children?
It seems to me something can
be done. I feel that the parents
of this country should be frankly
told about the situation and their
interest appealed to in the matter
of keeping children away from
railroad grounds, except when
they are legitimately called there.
I regret that now and then some
people get an erroneous under
standing that children are driven
away from the tracks because
they might pick up a few chunks
of scattered coal or a few bits of
kindling; but I do not think that
idea is general. We want to save
our coal, but much more do we
want to save the boys and girls
from mutilation and death and to
save the patents from sorrow.
For this purpose I hope we may
obtain the co-operation of parents
everywhere. Unless we .get this
and especially unless parents do
their duty in this important matter
other boys and girls will pay the
price of their parents neglect.
This is not an appeal on the
mere fact that the laws should be
enforced. It is true that the law
against trespassing should be up
held, but there should be public
I sentiment against trespassing by
children stronger than any law.
Are the legs and arms, and even
the lives of little children too high
a price to be paid for what fun
there may be in playing on the
tracks or jumping on and off
moving cars? Mothers and fath
ers, if you think so, that law will
be enough; for the remedy is in
your hands, and you alone can
prevent the maiming and killing
of these little ones by forbidding
them from coming on the railroad
tracks and especially from jump
ing on and off cars, and then see
that they obey you."
IRE TAXES TO BE
The'stateof Arizona will need
for the conduct of its affairs for
the two forthcoming years, more
than $2,500,000 according to the
preliminary estimate of' the State
Auditor Callahgan. This estimate
is subject to increase and revision
as the figures for some of the in
stitutions, notably the deaf and
dumb school at Tucson are not
in. In this estimate are included
the amounts necessary for opera
tion and maintenance-of the state
and the state's institutions for the
two years that will elapse before
the legislature will meet alter the
session which opens on Monday
as well as the estimates made for
improvements in the buildings,
but it does not include any pro
posed appropriation for a neV
wing to the state house.
Included in this amount are a
number of interesting items among
which is the proposal for an ap
propriation of 50,000 for main
tenance of the state fair, together
with an appropriation of $75,000
for a new exhibition building and
an appropriation of $10,000 per
year for improvements.
The state debt is in the neigh
borhood of $3,500,000, and there
is needed to meet the interest on
this debt for the two years $no,
000 or $55,000 per year. The
actual cost of the maintenance
of the state government for the
years is figured at $1,750,000 while
the. improvements to the state
institutions will call for an addi
