The man who coined the phrase tijut "money

It's a case of going away from home to get
the news: The Arizona Democrat says: "Gila

for governor. Mr. Coplen is one of the best

farmers to make a bid on a 4,000-ton order of

lands. Hasn't tho Gila valley got a market for
every spear of grass it can grow now and at a
price far in advance of any figure that your
Uncle Sam would pay?
DON'T BE SILLY
This talk about the city purchasing a gold
brick when it took over the water system and
plant of the Pinal Mountain Water company is
silly balderdash of a very ridiculous type, and
is not engaged in by honest people who are
familiar with the transaction and who really
have the best interests of Globe at heart.
As a matter of fact the water plant has not
cost the tax-payers of this city one mill to date
and never will. On the contrary it has taken
care of itself, paid for numerous extensions,
given the city an increased water supply and
left several thousand dollars to the credit of
the tax-payers in the hands of the city treas
The water company, during the progress of
the bond campaign, never made the claim that
tho company had sufficient water to supply a
city of 35,000 people.! On the contrary emis
saries from the company persistently circulat
ed a report decidedly to the contrary for the
purpose of influencing votes against the bond
issue. The water company h:A no real desire
to sell, and was only prompted to give an op
tion on the system by threats that the plant
would be confiscated and tlie stockholders left
to hold the sack. The plant and system were
thoroughly investigated, by a competent com
mittee and the price fixed by the company was
reported to be fair. A campaign followed dur
ing which the subject was thoroughly discussed,
and by an overwhelming majority the taxpay
ers voted the water bonds.
It was represented by the Silver Belt, by
facts and figures that have since been fully
verified, that the revenues, from the water plant
would provide for a sinking fund and pay the
interest on the water bonds and make possible
all necesary extensions and development for
additional water. The Silver Belt further
represented that the revenues from the water
plant would in addition to the item's already
enumerated, construct ana pay tor a sewerage
system to cost at least $100,000 and leave money
in the hands of the city treasurer for other pur
poses. A gold brick?
But of the pure metal not less than twenty
The water planf; is a veritable mint and has
come into the possession of the city as a preci
ous gift. From its revenues, without taking a
copper from the pockets of the taxpayers plenty
of water cansand will be developed. By th'e
present scarcity of water many have been an
noyed and inconvenienced. But it Avill be rem
edied, and more promptly as a result of coun
cil's wise and drastic order. Tt is perhaps
better to retard the progress of growing lawns
and budding bush than to have all the insurance
policies in the city canceled; and this is exactly
what Globe was up against. Don't you think,
now honestly, that tjie council made a wise
choice, and decided not to sacrifice the financial
interests of the people. Residents with lawns
and shrubs' and trees have learned a lesson in
economy and they are saving vegetation by
saving water which has heretofore gone to
waste. The step to-connect the mains with the
Old Dominion mine supply .js a wise one; the
determination ol the city council to continue
drilling operations at the. old site and give the
city a permanent, independent supply of watei
is a display of still greater wisdom.
The censure that has been heaped upon tlm
heads of the councilmen has been wholly un
called for and unwarranted. Tt is this kind of
treatment of public servants that make it dif
ficult to get the consent of really" good citi
zens to serve the people. Globe knew or was in
a position to know exactly what she was getting
lor the money Avhen the water bonds were voted ;
the people knew there had been .a shortage
of water every summer for years and until a
greater supply was developed the same summer
shortage .would exist. City council has ma'de
and is making honorable and persistent effort,
and with good reward. Despite accidents that
have checked the flow the well capacity has been
greatly strengthened and when the hole is
cleared and greater depth attained experts say
that an adequate supply of water will be at the
disposal of the city and the perplexing and pro
voking question answered for all time. Pend
ing this happy conclusion, let us quarantine
against "water on the brain."

m WASHINGTON, May 11. Why do protec
tionists never point to Italy as an illustration
of how excessive tariff rates "protect" the
Italy is one of the most highly protected
countries of Europe. It is famous as a country
"flowing with milk and honey."
Yet they never talk about Italy.
While in Italy last summer the writer learned
at first hand some of the reasons why our pro
tectionists never say: "Look at Italy."
Italy puts heavy duties on both agricultural
and manufactured imports. She pays her peo
ple exceedingly low .wages. She charges them
very high prices for the necessities of life. They
emigrate 'in great numbers.
To undQrstand'the situation clearly, we must
go back tt) 137." About that time a violent rev
olution in the system of Italian customs was
brought about. A powerful political group of
textile , manufacturers joinqd forces for their
own ends x with a powerful political group of
large land overs'. Tariffs were heavily increased.-
'ut not on everything. That power
ful band of textile manufacturers took good
care that lesser manufacturers, who made arti
cles needed in the textile factories, were not
enabled to put up their prices.
Hand fn hand with the powerful manufactur
ers the big land owners came out, "for a slice
of thetariff pie." In order that they should
be sufficiently compensated for being in politics,
the land owners had a heavy tax placed on
wheat growers. Three out of every four land
owners in Italy are possessors of small prop
erties, cultivating fruit for wine. They have to
buy a considerable part of the wheat they eat.
So it happened that where one large wheat
farmer' got bigger profits, three small fruit
farmers got hit. That is the way protection in
variably works. What is one man's protection
is another man's poison.
Italian wheat tax: Millions of, Italians never
eat wheat, bread, except in cases of illness or on
special festivals. They make a bread of maize.
In this and other 'respects the standard of living
of the Italian people is very low, because prices
are too high.
An enormous fiscal and protective tax was
also put upon sugar, s The -price rose so high,
that Italian farmers watched their "oranges,
lemons, peaches and other products of a warm
and generous sun, rot on their trees, in order
that the thirty-three manufacturers of the sugar
syndicate" might levy upon consumers a yearly
Far and away the chief of the Italian indus
tries are silk-reeling and silk-throwing. These
industries have been seriously hampered by pro
tection. And Ttaly is the home of the silk
One of the chief troubles of Italy is that the
goileral rise in prices has so greatly lessened the
purchasing power of the wages of the people,
that the great mass of the small dealers and
the working men and women suffer bitterly.
Tt is calculated that while ten Italians lose
by protection, only one stands any chance of
gaining. He does not always gain, for the
country does not progress. The interests of
Italy are sacrificed to the' one in ten.
In other words, excessive tariffs mcreased the
cost of living to the Italian people just as the
Payne-Aldrich law is increasing the cost of liv
ing in the. United States.
Is it any wonder that the protectionists. never
ask us to "Look at Italy?"
