Motor Transportation Of Troops
A Helpful Flood
The Best Man Loses
Why Not End The Farce?
Short Snatches From Everywhere
Gea. Bell'-" plan to transport an entire division of
United States troops from El Paso to Elephant Butte
dara and return by motor truck is one -which will arouse
great interest throughout the army and in the war de
partment as demonstrating the feasibility of trans
porting units of 12,000 or more men considerabIe dis
tances over average roads by means of motor vehicles
It may foreshadow the day when infantry will become
as mobile as cavalry; when troops will be far less de
pendent on railroads than now.
The trip to Elephant Butte by a division of United
States .troops will recall the day when Gen. Gallieni
commandeered thousands of taxicabs and other motor
vehicles in Paris, loaded them with 12,000 soldiers and
sped the whole command to the battlefield of the Marne
m tune to turn back the German army which threat
ened to overwhelm the capital of France. That trans
portation, however, did not present many difficulties
which would be encountered in moving the same num
ber of men to Elephant Butte dam and back. The
roads out of Paris are among the finest in the world.
There was no need for transporting supplies for the
troops in the same movement. The essential thing in
"914 was to move the selected portion of the army of
Pans a comparatively short distance at considerable
'peed and launch a severe blow with it against a wing
rf the German army to meet an emergency. The Amer
ican army's journey to Elephant Butte dam will be
more leisurely but also more arduous, and more equip
ment will be required.
Such movements of troops by motor truck as have
thus far been attempted, though heretofore on a small
cale, not more than a few companies at a time, have
been entirely successful- The trucks have given satis
faction and the cost of transportation is very much less
than that by rail.
It is probable the time will not come when motor
transportation will enable infantry, equipped with mo
tor trucks, to entirely displace the cavalry arm. Cavalry
is of service in country where even motor trucks can
not penetrate. Much of the scouting for Villa bandits
by Gen. Pershing's troops has been in mountains so
mgged that men could proceed only on horses, mules or
on foot Cavalry will be needed for such purposes so
long as troops operate in badly broken country, al
though infantry officers assert with great vehemence
'hat, day in and day out, infantry can outdo the cavalry
in a long campaign, men on foot becoming more hard
rned with service, while horses "wear out" under it
It has been said of the Mexico expedition that it was
a "cavalry expedition." because Gen. Pershing is a
ravalryman and is considered by infantrymen as partial
to that branch of the service. Gen. Bell is an infan
tryman and the infantry is going to be given a chance
n this new plan of his, say the infantry officers.
Whatever the truth in the bickering between the
different branches of the army, motor transportation
bids fair to tremendously increase the mobility of the
The Salt River oralley surrounding Phoenix was aided
by a cloudburst and flood last Saturday evening. Dis
patches late in the day told of an unusually heavy
downpour of rain, followed by a rush of water which
caused breaks in the canals and the flooding of fields.
The dispatches told of many thousands of dollars worth
of damage, and the reader could have been forgiven the
impression that crops and farm land itself suffered.
Such was not the case, however. Phoenix is one of
the few favored spots of the world where a flood is
usually a beneficence, worth almost its weight in gold.
What damage there was lay in the breaking of the
canal banks, not a very serious matter, after all. All
the main water gates along the canals were opened,
and the water descended through the ditches to the
multitude of farms, already well soaked from the rain
fall. The water as it came from the Verde valley north of
the Phoenix mountains which form a half-barrier along
the north side of the Salt River valley, was heavy with
silt. The silt was spread thinly and evenly over thou
sands of acres. It was a very easy and perfect fertili
zation of the farm lands, adding greatly to their pro
ductivity. This is the kind of automatic and natural fertiliza
tion which occurs in the valley of the Kile river, in
Egypt. It is a wonderful aid to the farmers of Arizona
and such floods the farmers welcome.
While Mexican commissioners are trying to show
what great strides the Carranza government has made
in restoring order in Mexico, wouldn't it be embarras

As predicted, George A. Olney did give Gov. G. W.
P. Hunt of Arizona a hard race for the Democratic
nomination for the governorship, but Hunt won for
the reason that, despite the most intense opposition
from most business and professional men, from prac
tically all the industries and from every daily news
paper in Arizona, 3000 more than enough people voted
Every argument which could possibly be truthfully
brought against Gov. Hunt to prevent his renomination
was produced. It was shown that taxes had increased
nearly 25 per cent, in some cases much more, during
Gov. Hunt's incumbency. Letters were printed wherein
eastern interests stated they were ready to invest in
Arizona mines and other enterprises, but not while
present conditions obtained. But Gov. Hunt was re
nominated. Organized labor voted for him practically solidly. He
has always been strong with the laboring men, and his
position in the Clifton strike made him stronger still.
The thousands of Arizona Democrats who work for
wages are for Hunt, no matter what is said against him.
They feel he is their friend, and he is just that. He is
a better friend to the miners, building trades, and the
day laborers generally than they have ever before
known. At least, he is more prompt to champion any
cause of labor. The trouble is, Gov. Hunt is not equally
a friend to the farmer, the real estate dealer, the small
grocer, the mining company and the salaried man.
It is possible the laboring men of Arizona a little
over estimate the value of Gov. Hunt's one sided friend
ship. A great many more miners, for instance, would
be at work in Arizona today had not the governor's
policies and those of his clan scared out of the state
the men who had money to develop mining clairnr.
Many another line of business is suffering likewise. It
is not necessary to give capital an unmerited prefer
ment in order to encourage it to invest and assist in a
state's development But it is necessary to make cap
ital feel it will not be received as an enemy, to be
preyed upon through over taxation or subjected to op
A good man went down to defeat in George Olney.
He would have made a good governor. He was the
best the Democrats had to offer. There is this to be
said: The thousands of Democrats who supported him
and who are so bitterly opposed to Gov. Hunt, still have
exactly their kind of man for whom to vote. He is
Tom Campbell, the Republican candidate for governor.
Mr. Campbell is a Republican first and last, but he is
also a straight forward, level headed Arizonan, without
fads, foibles or feuds, who, if elected, will administer
the affairs of the state impartially and will be a friend
of all classes instead of merely the friend of one.
The Democrats of Maine had not learned the call

The conferences of the American and Mexican com
missioners at New London, Conn, are proceeding as
harmoniously as a honeymoon, without a single point
of difference, so far as the public is informed by the
statements issued from day to day. The whole pro
gram is cut and dried. Everyone has a fair idea what
is to be done and that complete agreement on the course
of both the United States and Mexico was practically
assured before the commissions met The daily con
ferences consist on the presentment, by one side, of a
series of statements concerning Mexico with which th
other does not disagree. They read like a narrative of
Mexican revolutionary history. The discussions, so
called, appear to be limited to assertions and assents.
When everyone knows that the United States has
long since determined to accept the declarations of the
Carranza government at their face value and to with
draw the Pershing expedition from Mexico, the wonder
is that there should be so much palaver. Every word
issued for publication from Washington or New Lon
don shows plainly the course of the United States has
been long agreed upon. The best possible construction
is placed on every phase of Mexican internal and ex
ternal affairs. Every effort is made either to minimize
or to ignore altogether bandit activities. Though Villa
has revived his activities and is causing the Mexican
authorities themselves frank concern, Washington does
not officially regard him as in existence. His name is
not mentioned. The activities of his men bring not a
word from the state department.
The commissioners for the United States accepted the
statement of the Mexican commissioners that the Car
ranza government is in full control of Mexico, and at
the same time appeared not surprised when the com
missioners proposed that strong forces, both of Mexico
and the United States, guard the American border. If
Mexico is all "peace and quiet," why the necessity for
this guard? The American commissioners seemed to
see nothing strange in the suggestion that United States
troops should protect their own country from citizens of
another country of which its government claims to be
in control. That a government should be in control
and still unable to control did not seem contradictory.
It is a farcical performance, the whole series of New
London conferences. Better end it and withdraw the
Pershing expedition, since the administration is de
termined to withdraw it, anyhow, and let Mexican af
fairs drift along, as they have drifted in the past, and as
they will continue to drift so long as no strong guiding
hand is in evidence.
