t(ie Yuma project. Three years ago the
Laguna dam was completed This dam
s a great feature of engineering in

the water level of the river ten feet
and diverts the water through great
neadgates into the main canals on the

s 50 feet wide and has successfully
withstood the greatest known flood in
the Colorado One hundred and fifty

The main canal leaves the dam on
the California side of the river, swings
around the edge of the mesa and de

The court held that the "license agree

Tbe fight against the enameled ware
manufacturers was begun bv the govern

had attempted to monopolize that trade,

One of the individual defendants was
Edward L. Wayaian, with whom the cor

The decision marked an epoch in anti

amendment for debt refunding.

Democrats Will Make Over
the Sherman Law When
the Tariff Is Revised.
HENRY WILL PRESS
THE TRUST ISSUE
(By Winfleld Jones.)
Washington. D. C, Nov. 18. The cer-
tainty that the Democrats will control
both branches of the national legisla-
ture in the' 63d congress has acted as
a check upon plans for the immediate
revision of the herman anti-trust law.
It is now conceded that no specific at-
tempt will be made to revise that stat
ute during the short session, and the
Democratic attitude is that the trust
problem should await the time when
tnax party exercises complete control of
the legislative and executive branches
! nf the rnvprnmpnt.
t1.ava ..a .. .4m,.
There are a dozen bills nrooosing to
amend the Sherman law now before the
house committee on judiciary, whose
chairman is congressman Henry D.
Clayton, of Alabama. Mr. Clayton and
his committee associates are inclined
toward a policy of strengthening the
luiuli a l"" " irraBi mc
law, nt " 3s reliably learned that no
I such attempt will be made while the
senaie aim uie presiuein arc i upim-
siic pviiuvai laiLii.
It is not assured, however, that
chairman Clayton will exercise merely
a legislative function as regards amend
ments to the Sherman law. His name is
mentioned by the slatemakers as an
available man. for the attorney general
ship under the Wilson administration
His long service on the house judiciary
committee and his legal attainments put
him in the running for a cabinet port
folio, and there is the added reason
that he is representative of the Un- ;
derwood strength.

Irrespective of whether congressman
Clayton becomes the Democratic trust,
buster or the leader in shaping new
anti trust legislation, he and his com
mittee are in for a busy time during
the next year or so. Since the supreme
court decisions in the Standard oil and
tobacco cases chairman Clayton and
the members of the house judiciary
committee have been buckling down "to
a study of the trust problem.
Democratic KefereeH.
About the first question which the
Wilson administration will have to
solve, even in advance of the making
of appointments, is what brana .f
iemocrats it Is going to depend on for
referees In the different stater.
This question is loaded with dyna
mite. President Taft found it so. Mr.
Wilson will hardly find it otherwise.
President Taft took the course of abid
ing by the advice of the standpatters
in the matter of patronage. He turned
a deaf ear to the progressives of his
party. In fact, after the beginning of
the regular session of the Slst con
gress, in the winter of 1908-10, he
made open war on the insurgents in
the matter of patronage and he is still
making it. That Is. he is still refusing
to appoint to office men recognized by
the progressive Republicans.
Gov. Wilson, when he becomes presi
dent, will face the same situation with
respect to his party that president Taft
faced. He will have to make appoint
ments either on the recommendation
of the "progressive" Democrats o- the
conservatives and reactionaries. Maybe
he will be adept enough to tr-m and
sail between the two sides. But the
feeling between them is toj tense to
make it likely he can do th's
Question is Up .Voir.
Already this question Is sticking up
sharply in a number of states. A good
instance of it Is found no further away
than Maryland. Maryland went strong
for Wilson. At the Baltimore conven
tion the influence of the old Demo
cratic machine, led by senato- John
Walter Smith, was against Wilson. The
progressive Democrats of the state,
including senator Rayner, Blair Lee,
many of the John Hopkins university-
crowd, and the anti-machine Democra's
generally lined up for Wilson.
Senator Smith is one of the chief of
the senate reactionaries, a high tariff
lumber man, a protection Democrat,
and, in short, anything but a pro
gressive In any sense. But he is a fin
ished politician, and the story is al
ready going the rounds that when the
spoils of office are divided he will be
on hand with his recommendations and
they will be listened to In fact, some
of the Maryland politicians go so far
as to say Smith, rather than the "pro
gressive" Democrats, -will dictate the
patronage.
Friends of Wilson in Washington do i
not belteve this will happen How
ever, this is an illustration of the situ
ation that confronts the president
elect. In practically every state in" the
union he will have to face squarelv the
problem of whether he is going to let
the reactionaries or the progressie
men of his partv nominate the office
holders. And if he turns to one he
will win tbe condemnation of the
other. If he tries a middle-of-the-road
path, he -will Incur the usual dancer of

Mucn has been said as to the Babbit
of srovernor Hunt andr superintendent
Sims in sending groups of convicts to
isolated regions without guards to
build roads and much has also been
said , by way of criticism as to the
i danger to the body politic of permlt-
tlng criminals to have sucn freedom.
However, after a careful investigation
of the workings of tbe system at the
road camps on the Florence to Phoe
nix highway, the Globe-Ray roads and
on the Tempe bridge, the conclusion is
reached that the body politic te in no
danger at all and that the convicts so
employed are much better off tnan
they would be if kept within the prison
walls with no employment at ail, as
was the rule under the otd system.
Under the new regime, the state is
getting much needed roads, the in
mates of the prison are healthier and
in a better way to be converted into
better citizens than they were before
they became prisoners and the body
politic is better off on both counts; at
least that is the opinion of these who
favor the present departure from the
old fashioned purely punitive systepa.

rizona Is not the onlj state in
which the socalled "honor system" or
"humane method" of treating the In
mates of state prisons is practiced, but
in Arizona the "honor system" or
"humane method" is sublimated. It is
carried just as far as it can be carried
without turning the inmates of the
penitentiary back upon society with

who is responsible for the conditions

says the men the prisoners are the
better for the change from the old
pumtie system. Superintendent Sims
says they are better and the men
themselves say they are the better for
it On that score there seems to be a
remarkable unanimity of opinion.
Of the 400 convicts supposed to be
in the Arizona prison, 161 are em
ploed at road or bridge building 82
at the Tempe bridge, 38 are at work on
the Globe-Ray road and 41 are build
ing the Florence-Phoenix highway and
making a good job of it. At the
Tempe bridge camp, the men are kept
in a stockade and work under guard,
but it is the only one of the three
camps where the men are kept housed
up or are under guard, and, strange
to say, it is from this camp that most
of the men -who have taken "leg bail"
have made their getaway. At the
Globe-Ray and Florence-Phoenix
camps the men work wtihout guard
and at night sleep on cots in com
fortable tents with no one 'watching
them to see that they -do not escape
There have been but two escapes from
these camps and in each case they were
men with but a few weeks to serve, it
is stated
StSHrt Termem Try to Bscape.
It would naturally be supposed that
the short termers would be willing to
"stick it out" for the few weeks or
days remaining for them to serve and
that the men with years of service
starinsr them in the face would be the
men most likely to make a break for
liberty should a chance offer, but such
is not the case,, strange to say. Men
who have had much experience as
guards and superintendents of penal
institutions say that, it is invariably
the rule that when the time of a pris
oner is about to expire, he becomes
nervous, is sleepless, cannot eat and
often reaches the point where he must
be tauen in nana by tne prison pnsi
eian. The theory is that the prisoner
about to be released, as his time for
release approaches, begins to worry
about the way he will be received by
his f-.iily and the outside world In
general until it becomes an obsession
with him. If he is shut up within
nails, the obsession manifests itself
in the form of a nervous breakdown;
if he is working in an 'honor" camp
he sometimes runs away, but not near
ly so often as might be supposed.
The Arizona penitentiary, unlike
most state prisons, is not a manufac
turing plant except to the extent that
all the clothing, except socks and hats,
worn by the inmates, is manfactured
within the prison walls. This fur
nishes employment for manv shoemak
ers, shirt makers and tailors Then
there are cooks and waiters, barbers,
electricians, engineers and firemen,

Mexico City, Met, Nov. IS. That the
Mexican government is determined to
carry out the threat to resume the
tactics employed so successfully by
Gen. Robles in the state of Morelos.
some months ago, is indicated by the
report of the war department announc
ing the total destruction of several
small towns and villages in the north
era mountains of Oaxaea, where tbe
revolution has been rampant.
Ixtepeji and Zia, two of the places
destroyed, were the strongholds of the
Serrano Indians, who have not been
subjugated by tbe campaign waged in
the vicinity of the state capital after
an attempt had been made to capture
the city. Convinced that the inhabi
tants of these towns were in accord
with the rebels, orders were issued for
their destruction. Without calling on
the inhabitants to withdraw, the ar
tillery began its work, ceasing only
when 'the town had been reduced to a
mass of ruins.
Another evidence of the govera

3060 soldiers now operating In the
north, chiefly in Chihuahua, Coahuiia
and Durango. will be sent against the
rebels in the states of Mexico, Puebla,
Guerrero and Oaxaca. The government
is convinced that the situation in the
northern part of the country is now
so nearly in hand that smaller forces
will be able to restore normal condi
tions. The Indians are active in other di
rections. Official reports say condi
tions in the states of Morelos and Mex
ico have improved, but it is known that
the rebels hold important hills near
,Cuernavaca and largely control the ru
ral districts and many of the minor
towns in the state of Mexico. The
situation in the state of Guerrero has
become worse on account of the leader
ship of Juan Andrew Almazan, who is
said ;o have a cruel following and
controls much territory along the Pa
cific coast.
Gen. Aguilar, who Is supposed to be
directing a large portion of the rebel
forces, is operating in the southern
part of the state of Puebla. Encoun
ters are reported daily, but in all of
them the government has been victori
ous, with slight loss. At Huaquecheu
la, federals dislodged the rebels from
a strong position, eight rebels neing
killed and one federal. Numerous haci
endas and small towns have been
sacked and the crops destroyed.

Rosenthal Case.
DECLARES HIS BRAIN
WORKED OUT PLOT
New Tork, N. Y., Nov. IS. Charles
Wahle, attorney for the four "gunmen
accused of the murder of Herman
Rosenthal, began his argument to the
jury today. Wahle began with the
assertion that Jack Rose was "the
guiding hand that put the shots Into
Herman Rosenthal." Rose, he cnarae
terised as a "criminal for 20 years and
never caught."
"You must have weighed beneath
the depths of the calm demeanor of
Jack Roee," the counsel continued, "the
degradation and criminality of his
character. His was the brain that
directed the plot which Webber, Vallon
and Schepps carried into execution."
Mr. Wahle said the evidence proved
that Rose feared the gunmen, that he
sought them out to prove he had
nothing to do with the "framing up" of
"Jack" Zelig, their gang leader.
"Rose's desire to prove his innocence,
that s .the shibboleth of the entfre
case." declared Mr. Wakle.

Are you looking for work?
Seventeen positions were advertised
as open to applicants in the classified
columns of Tbe Herald Saturday night
from El Paso employers. Cooks and
women for housework seem to be in
constant demand at good wages. A
young man acquainted in El Paso and a
hustler is promised a profitable "posi
tion as city solicitor, an experienced
salesman with an automobile is needea
for city work by another advertiser. A
negro cook for a family of three can
have Thursday afternoons off and a
permanent job by applying at 310 West
Missouri Monday.
One feature of The Herald want ads
is the number of homes sold. "Home"
is a magic word. In Saturday's paper
there were 14 such ads, some detailed
in description, others lacking in facts
of advantages and conveniences To
tbe owner seeking personal and direct
contact with the purchaser The Herald
suggests that a little more information
be sriv n. The fact that Virginia creeper
screens the porch from the midday sun,
or that there is a flower garden on the
lawn may seem a little thing and yet
may induce inspection not otherwise
secured.
Phone 4478 is the address of a pros
pective buyer of a second hand automo
bile. The Herald want ads have bought
and sold several motor cars in the past
week. This page is rapidly gecoming
an automobile marketplace because of
the wide circulation secured and the
fact that Herald small advertisements
are read by 70,000 a day. A Harley

BULGARIANS
REPULSED By
The Invaders Are Unable to
Make Headway Against
the Tchatalja Defence.
LAST STAND BEFORE
TURKISH CAPITAL'
Servians Capture Monastic
From the Turks King
Nicholas Sees th?- Fight. .
London. Ens., Nov. 18. Bulgariasr
attack on the Turkish line of fortifica
tions defending Constantinople at'
Tchatalja has failed, though tbe wholes
Bulgarian army was engaged. Every'
available man was moved to the front
from the Bulgarian forces investing'
Adrianople, where they were relieved;,
by Servian troops.
The Bulgarians, with all their artiU
lery began their advance en tha'
Tchatalja fortifications on Saturday
and continued the bombardment of the
works throughout Sunday. They.
however, found the Turkish positions
so strong that they could make no im
pression on them and for the moment
at least the attempt has been given up.
Turks Make Determined Stand.
Observers 'Who have been to the
Turkish front agree that the capture
of the Tchatalja lines must prove a
task of tremendous difficulty. The
days the Bulgarians were compelled to
use for the bringing up of guns and
ammunition and reinforcements were
utilise by the Turks to entrench them
selves and place their gsms in position,
giving thesn a dtottnet asrrantage ever
the attackers. The Turks, wno h.id
been so shaken by their previous de
feat, appeared to have been stead-' d
and thus far have made a most deter
mined stand.
The Bulgarian troops made the'r
main attack to the east of Tchataljn
aiming to break through at the point
where the railway to Constantinople
makes a loop. The strong torts, the
marshes and te guns of the Turkish
warships had evidently discouraged
them from from making an attempt to
turn either flank of the Turkish lines
Should the Bulgarians be successful
in their effort to break through tha
Turkish left center. Nazim Pasha's
Ottoman army will be pushed back to
the northeast and its retreat on the
capital will be cut off. The Turks seem
to have no. hope of rolling back the
Bulgarian forces, but if they succeed in
holding the lines at Tchatalja both the
military and diplomatic situation will
undergo a marked change, since a long
defence of the front will probably com
pel the invaders to negotiate without
taking Constantinople
MeBtesefnetes Make Progress,
At Scutari the Montenegrins are at
last making some headway. They have
succeeded in driving the Turkish troops,
from one of their mountain positions,
but the Turkish commander has not.
given up hope of making a long de
fence. The invested fortress of Adrianople.
also, according to independent cc-i
respondents, is still able to withstand
a siege -of several months.
The Greek army is oi its 'way to
Janina, the fortress in the southwest
ern portion of European Turkey, and'
the Greek fleet continues busy in the
Aegean Sea. It occupied yesterday the
island of Icana.
Anatria Modifies Dtmmnila.
Acting on the recommendation of
her ally, Italy. Austria is said to have,
modified her demands and no longer
objects to the construction of a railway
from the DanuBe to the Adriatic She
has also abandoned her scheme of a
customs union with Servia.
On the other hand. Great Britain,
Russia and France are giving counsels,
of moderation and conciliation to
Seryla. The latter still talks of tak
ing ode or more ports on the Adriatic
but doubtless m the end will listen to
the advice of her friends and accept
some compromise.
While fighting is going on at Tcha
talja, the negotiations for an armistic
have lost some of their interest, b it
have not been forgotten by the bel
ligerents. It is stated that the terms
of the Balkan allies will include a de
mand for the cession of all the Turkish
territory down to the Erkene river and
the payment of an indemnity of $120 -000.000
Marines Landed at Capital.
At Constantinople everything Is quiet,
although the landing of larger detach
ments of marines and bluejackets than
usual has caused some perturbati n
among the Turks. The most compn -hensive
measures have been taken f. r
