Arizona seems to be going the way of most of the other states in adopt
ing and perpetuating all the illogical, impractical, and unfair methods
that have cluttered up the tax books of American states for more than a century.
Why doesn't Arizona prove her wise progressiveness by adopting a modified form
of the single tax on land values? All taxes on improvements, all taxes on in
tangibles, all taxes on industries, are bad taxes. The further away we get from
objects of taxation that an assessor can see and touch, the more unfair the tax
becomes the more costly, the more impractical.
Under prevailing systems in most of the states, the smaller property holder
pays a grossly excessive proportion of taxes, while the larger the value of property
involved and the larger the actual income, the less in proportion does the owner
pay. Furthermore, under existing laws in most states, the user of borrowed or
invested capital gets caught easily every time, while the owner of the capital
loaned or invested is often able to escape.
If any radical departure be made from the single tax on land values, it should
be in the direction of output tax on mines, and gross receipts tax on public utilities
including railroads. As a matter of fact, however, a single tax on land values
equiiably applied would catch the railroads fairly along with all the other "owners"
and occupiers of land.
Present taxing methods in practically all of the states often result in double
and triple tax on some objects of taxation, while a vast amount of property
theoretically taxable under existing laws escapes entirely. Any- tax on stocks,
bonds, mortgages, notes, or other credits based on land or improvements is in
variably a double tax, which the user of capital, the borrower, has to pay.
Arizona would place herself in line with the best progressive thought of the
age if she were to Tefonn her whole taxing system along the lines of greater sim
plicity, gradually relieve all improvements and industries from the unequal and
double'taxation to which they are now subjected abolish all taxes on intangibles,
on evidences of debt, on personal incomes, and on credits, as hopelessly impossible
of equitable enforcement-
The basic tax should be the single tax on land values, and state boards of
equalization, county boards and local boards, working in harmony, could better
equalize the taxes than can possibly be done under present or proposed systems
based on the illogical and inequitable practice of most of the states.

Archbald Case Is Unique
Many O.ue.itlons Are Involved in Im
peachment Trial Before the
United State Senate.
By Fredcrio J. IlasKin
WASHINGTON, D. C, Jan. il.
Whatever the outcome of the
impeachment proceedings in
'.he United States senate against judge
Robert W. Archbald of the commerce
court. It seems certain that their con
clusion will mark an important epoch
in American jurisprudence. If the ver
dict of the senate, sitting as a tribunal
of impeachment, is against Arclibald,
the opponents of the growing senti
ment in favor of the recall"bf juages
will be heartened, and they will h,egin
with renewed vigor their argument
against the recall. On the other hand,
if its findings fail to. oust judge Arch
bald, this will be taken by the pro
ponenents of the recall as proof posi
tive that the present impeachment sys
tem affords no remedy against the
corrupt judge, and they will make the
most of the case in their propaganda in
favor of the recall.
Archbald Cane is' Unique.
Not only is the Archbald case
epochal in its bearings, but there are
many features about it that render it
unique in the history of impeachment
proceedings. In the first place, the
Boland charges, which set the whole
proceedings into motion, were not in
themselves, of a nature to justify im
peachment. It vta.s only -when these
charges -were being investigated that
the real evidence upon which the pro
ceedings were based was found. Again,
it is unique in that it is the first time
in the history of impeachments in the
United States that the very administra
tion that appointed the judge, pro
duced the evidence upon which im
peachment proceedings against him
When the house decided to impeach
Archbald it took a step unprecedented
in the history of impeachments by the
federal government. It authorized the
manager of the impeachment proceed
ings to employ counsel, the expense in
volved to be paid out of the contingent
fund of the house. There was no limit
fixed as to the fee, and the managers
were given carte blanche in the choice
of legal talent. But so impressed were
they with the work that 29 year old
Wrisley Brown had done in investigat
ing the case for the' department of
justice, that they unanimously agreed
to ask the attorney general to allow
Brown to act as their counsel.
Senate Balks at Counsel.
It was the first time ln-Jhe history
of the senate that a. lawyer for the
house managers had ever appeared in
a case, and Brown's right to be there
was quickly questioned by senator
Bailey and others. The theory upon
which they objected to his having any
part in the procedure -was that the
power of impeachment was supposed
to lie wholly outside of the executive
branch, and that Brown's coming into
the case violated this theory, since he
was an assistant to the attorney gen
eral. The upshot of the matter was
that Brown was permitted to appear
on condition that he should not be
permitted to address the senate in the
final summing up.
Many New Questions Involved.
One point has been raised in " the
casesof judge Archbald that never liaa
been raised heretofore. Six of the ar
ticles of impeachment relato to acta
. that he is charged with having com
muted oeiore he was elevated to a cir
cuit judgeship, and while he was a dis
trict judge. The question arises
whether he can be impeached for acts
committed in another office. His at
torneys say that he cannot. In support
of this contention they assert that
president Taft was once a United
States judge, and that if he eould now
be impeached and disqualified from
holding office because of acts com
mitted while a wearer of the judicial
ermine, the gravest of consequence
might ensue. They also point out that
he was at one time solicitor general
of the United States, at another time
governor general of the Philippines,
and at yet another time secretary of
war, and that if impeachment reaches
to other offices than the one at the
time held, then no man can be sure
of his position.
Question of Jndcculiip.
Another line of argument in support
of this contention is that if impeach
ment reached back to offices formerly
......, w.t... u ..,, nuu uau uuiic niuilb
a score of years before while acting J
as umtea states district attorney, and
who had since served with credit as
district judge, circuit judge and jus
tice of the supreme court, might be
driven out of his position by his lapses
of 20 .years before.
The Impeachment managers do not
deny the general proposition that im
peachment proceedings may be upheld
only for the office of which the im
peached man is thn inoiimhent Tint
they assert that in such matters a cir- J
cult judgeship and a district judge
ship are practically one and the same
so far as impeachments proceedings
are concerned. Circuit judges are fre
quently called upon to act as district
judges, and district judges with even
more frequency assume the duties and
responsibilities of circuit judges. The
circuit judge may commit impeachable
offences while exercising the functipns
of a district judge, and the circuit
judge may commit impeachable of
fences while acting as circuit ludtre:
This, according to the impeachment,
managers, -establishes the Identity of
two positions for impeachment pur
poses. Sis charges against Judge.
But the case against Archbald does
not rest upon this argument. The first
sjx articles relate to offences com
mitted while a circuit judge. The first
charge against him since becoming a
circuit judge refers to his acquisition
of part ownership in the Katydid
culm dump, which was indirectly
owned by the Erie railroad, a litigant
before the commerce court.
The second charge against him is
that he undertook to induce the Dela
ware, Lackawanna, and Western rail
road, a litigant before his court, to buy
two-thirds of the stock of the Marian
Coal company, which owned a culm
dump at Taylor, Penn.
The third charge is that he unlaw
fully used his Influence to compel th"
Lehigh Valley Coal company, owned
by the Lehigh Valley Railroad com
pany, to lease to him and his associates
a clam dump near Shenandoah, the
while he was circuit judge and the Le
high Valley railroad a litigant beforo
the commerce court.
Charge He Consulted Attorney.
The fourth chaFge relates to a case
of the Louisville & Nashville railroad
pending before the commerce court It
charges that before the decision of the
case and after the evidence was all in
he "secretly, wrongly, and uslawfully"
held correspondence -with the attorney
for the railroad company relative to
The fifth charge is that he endeav
ored to use his influence to Induce the
Pennsylvania and Reading railroad to
lease a culm bank to Frederick
Warnke and received a promissory
note for $500 for his services The
sixth charge is that he used his in
fluence as a judge to induce the Le
high Valley railroad to buy a tract of
The charges which relate to his ser

VBRALLS are the uniform ot
Overalls must not, however, be
confounded with dress suits. Dress suits
are merely the advetrisement of pros
perity. Overalls arc not worn much by fich
people. They are confined mostly to
men who are producing riches. Put a
captain of industry on a desert island
and at the end of a year he would be a
living skeleton hunting shrimps for food.
But give him a thousand privates in
overalls to boss and in the same time he
would be loading corn for export and
writing for automobile catalogs.
Overalls are made of cher." stout ma
terial and are made to got dirty. A
clean pair of overalls constitute an in
dictment for laziness. Kbthing looks
more ridieulous than a pair of clean over
alls except perhaps a dress suit shirt
which looks as if the owner had ueen
working in it.
On the other hand nothing adds to the
dignity of 'overalls so much as grime.
The more grease and grime a pair of
overalls accumulates the more successful
they have been in their career.
Overalls and suoeess go hand, in hand.
"The uniform, of prosperity."
Wherever the overall is found in any
abundance there also can be found the
growing crops, the advancing railroad,
the soaring buildings and the roaring
factories. The only parts of America
still in their primaeval loneliness are
those unfortunate spots which have not
known the beneficent and inspiring over
all. It takes a dozen pairs of overalls tOi
support a arees suit in the luxury to
which it is accustomed and there are
people blind enough to think that over
alls were created for this purpose.
This is the chief trouble with many
countries. When the overall must de
vote itself to the support of dress suits,
gold braid, diamond stomachers and fur
lined overcoats it becomes sullen and in
different and soon wears out in the seat.
The success of a government can be
determined from the region of greatest
wear on the overall. If this region is
on the seat the government is a failure
and will sooner or later be closed out be
low cost If, however, the seat still en
dures while the rest of the garment has
gone gloriously to rags, all is well with
the government and the saving banks
bulge witli plenty.
The emblem of America should be the
overall. It has made us mighty. (Copy

Aoisy, Crowded Broadway
By Mabel Herbert Lrncr
TT WAS not quite 11, but the New
T Year's hilarity had already begun.
- The wine flushed diners were clink- 1
ing glasses, singing, whistling and
throwing gayly colored confetti.
Overworked waiters were dodging
in and out through the crowded tables
bringing fresh supplies of champagne,
Warren had begun fuming early in
the evening. "Five dollars graft to the
head waiter before hell reserve you a
table," he fumed, "and $5 a plate for
your supper G3d, it's a blamed impo
sition that you can't drink beer if you
But that had been earlier in the eve
ning. Now he had just ordered a fresh
bottle of champagne, seemingly indif
ferent to the exorbitant bill they .had
already run up.
His face was slightly flushed, and he
was garrulously insisting on telling p
story tp which no one seemed inclined
Mr. and Mrs. Stevens and Mr. and
Mrs. Dawson made up their party of
six. Helen was seated between War
ren and Mr. Dawson, on whom the wine
seemed to have a rather quieting ef
fect, while it made both Warren and
Mr. Stevens most loquacious.
A Curious Custom.
But Helen was much less interested
in" the story than in the gay scene
about her. Jpvery one seemed to feel
they were licensed to relax and grow
hilarious. It is a curious custom that
favors the greeting of the New Year
with a muddled brain and the pros
pect of a racking headache the next
Most of the men wore the fancy
paper hats given as favors by the
management, and as they were all In
faultless evening dress, the effect was
most grotesque. Some of the women
had perched the caps over their elab
orately dressed hair, but as a rule they
were as yet too self conscious to risk
"Do you see that woman over
there?" Mrs. Stevens whispered to
Helen across the table. "The one in
pale yellow? Isn't it dreadful?"
The woman was conspicuously
gowned in shimmering pale yellow
satin, cut very low and ablaze with
jewels, and she was now busily tying
a long-' white kid glove around the
neck of her escort.
"No no, the 'order of the Garter,
not the 'order of the Glove!' some
body called out. at which there was a
fresh burst of laughter.
A man at a nearby table was doing a
sort of "turkey trot," with his arms
and shoulders, without rising from his
chair, and another -was tjapping time
with his hands and feet.
Noise In Plenty.
Helen tried to smile, but above
everything else she hated the maud
lin, foolish stage, which most men
reach when they have had much wine.
"Say," demanded Mr. Dawson ab
ruptly, "where's the horns? Haven't
heard one, have you
"I think they make quite enough
noise without any horns," commented
Mrs. Stevens. "It's really shocking
the way they carry on."
"Well, we came to" be shocked,
didn't we?I grinned Warren. "We'd
feel we hadn't got our money's worth
if it was a decent, orderly crowd."
Suddenly a party of four at a table
near the center of the room began to
sing. They were plainly professionals,
for their trained voices coud be heard
even above the uproar.
"Why, the orchestra's playing with
them," murmured Helen.
"Of course, they are hired by the
management," Mr. Dawson informed
her. "Did you think they were mere
ly diners? That's quite a trick now
to put the singers at one of the tables
as if they were guests."
Soon the after theater crowd began
to pour in, and filled up the few tables
that were still reserved.
The popping of corks and shrieks of
laugnter grew more frequent. The
waiters no longer served the cham
pagne in buckets of ice, "but slammed
the bottles on the table with no more
ceremony than if they were serving
beer. They did not even take time to
remove the empty Dottles.
The Festive Stranger.
The head waiter came around now,
distributing additional souvenirs. A
fantastic mechanical toy in the shape
of a turkey gobbler with its back filled
with candies, and a tail that spread
and feet that jerked up when you
pulled a ribbon labeled, "the Turkey

Warren. "If s about matter of busi

window sill. "Come on back, Billy.
The girls want you."
No Place for Sentiment.
"No," protestlngly. "These are nlco

Suddenly from the outside came the
sound of bells and whistles. Helen
glanced at the big bronse clock over
the orchestra it was Just three min
utes to 12.
Instinctively every one arose and
waved their glasses, which seemed the
signal for a deafening din of shouts.

The Diary of A Bachelor
He Meets the Widowed Mother of
Mnnette'n l'laymate and Fears a
EC. 3. I had hoped to escape
making an acquaintance' at this
hotel, but find that Manette is
making that impossible. She and little
Alice Martin have become such fast
j friends it was only a matter of time
till I would be compelled to make the
acquaintance of Alice's mother.
That good fortune (or will it prove
to be bad?) befell me this morning.
Manette and I were walking in the
park when suddenly she dropped my
hand and ran to greet a little girl who
was walking with a very handsome
woman of about 30. She pulled the
little girl back to where I waited for
her and the mother followed. "This."
said Manette, trying in her baby fash
ion to. remember the instructions Miss
Hill had given her, "is Alice's mamma.
She hasn't any papa; he's in heaven.
And this," grasping my hand, "is my
most belovedest uncle Max. All the
rest of us are In heaven, too."
With "all the rest of us in heaven"
furnishing credentials which should be
food for any occasion Mrs. Martin and
bowed, and an acquaintance began
which has so far been very agreeable,
No Matrimonial Designs.
I enjoy talking with women. I have
often descended 'into the kitchen at
home and talked with the cook while
she rolled out her pies and cakes. Or,
perhaps, cakes are no't rolled out. I am
not so sure about that, but I do know
that her views of life and its problems
have furnished me with much pleasant
and profitable reflection.
Every evening when I have accom
panied Manette to the realm of the
band Man. and beguiled her with fairy
tales while he sprinkled sand on her
eyelids, I talk with Richards.' her
nurse, while waiting for the child to
fall sound asleep. Talking with a
cook and a-nurse may be frowned upon
by the millionaires, of whose class I
am a most unhappv member, but at
least they have no matrimonial de
signs upon me. '
If I speak pleasantly to any other
woman she takes it as encouragement
and straightway begins to lay a mine
to catch my heedless feet.
Dec. 10 The t time is passing both
profitably and pleasantly. Manette is
growing round and rosy once more,
and is losing her fear of every one.
She plays with Alice Martin from
morning till night.
A Suspicious Sigh.

day when we were watching the chil
dren playing in the sand.
"She needs the companionship of a
child all through the days of her child
hood," replied Mrs. Martin. Then, with
a sigh, she added: "Manette and Alice
are like two sisters. They are so con
genial!" I don't like that sigh. I believe I
had better send for Mrs. Jack Spencer.
She can read women: I can't. Mrs.
Martin is very handsome, very agree
able, and very clever. Moreover, her
late husband is in heaven. He is not
divorced from her. and to live with a

is a most creditable and unusual thing
But occasionally I catch- a look from
her that is undeniably tender. There
was a day when such a look would

The ministers, particularly thos a

wiles, under the pain of tn1
church's anathema. She threw t1- i

The Striped Robe
A Short Story.
GREAT stc-rm had devastated
the country and now the heat
was terrifle. The evenings
also were bad and on this particular
night we remained Inside the enclv--ure
of the military post drinking -ooi
drinks in silence. In the kitchen a.
roan was playing a bamboo lyre, pot
cocks were strutting along the walis
of the gardens and Mahmud was tel.
ing us stories.
Suddenly Mahmud crept .near me
with distorted face and whisperea
"Sidi, the peacocks have disappears 1.
That means that the tigress is comn
and will kill somebody."
Someone struck the big gong at tee
gate in a familiar way.
It was Sorg, a little man. all dried
up muscles and bones, with feeri".i
eyes and a face like a Chinese mask
"Is It true that the peacocks ha e
gone?" Sorg asked.
He was told that it was true
"All right," he said, "tamorrow I
shall hunt at 5 o'clock."
Sorg had his own ideas of hunting
and nothing could make him chan .a
them. The next morning at dawn :.e

and a belt heavy with cartridges, h 3

where there must have been a strug
