MILLIONS ARE APPROPRIATED
DIFFERENT STATES FOR
ROAD BUILDING
BY
WASHINGTON, D. C, Nov. 20
(Special to the Yuma Examiner) If
there is one subject which the entire
country, and Washington in particular,
is interested in more than another at
the present time, it is good roads.
Congress showed, at the last session,
that it is keenly alive to the im
portanc of this subject The number
of bills introduced calling for national
highways was surprising. Many con
gressmen are staunch advocates of the
idea of building great systems of na
tional roads, and the most powerful
man in Congress, Speaker Champ
Clark, who missed becoming president
by a very narrow margin, is one of
them.
There is no further need, it would
seem, of preaching the advantages
even the necessity of good inter-state
highways. A system of good roads was
one of the things which made Rome
great and aided in continuing its great
ness. Even in what was then a remote
province, and now is Great Britain,
one may walk on roads the Romans
built, treading on the very stones laid
by the legionaries of the Caesars. In
this country we are but beginning tc
profit by the example of such ancient
nations as Rome, but our Department
of Agriculture has been preparing for
years, through its good roads bureau,
for ,the campaign that now has the
country in its grasp. Many millions of
dollars are being appropriated by the
states, from New York to California
and Oregon, for extensive systems of
highways, and it will not be many
years before one will be able to travel
from the Atlantic to the Pacific ovei
perfect roads by bicycle, motor or
horse-drawn vehicle.
The city of San Diego, Cal., is very
much interested in the question. Only
two or three weeks ago a motor cai
race was held between that city and
Phoenix, Arizona, to demonstrate the
superiority of that route for the west
ern division of a national highway.
Mayor Wadham of San Diego was so
enthusiastic over the matter that he
arranged for an "outlaw" race with
Mr. Percy J. Benbaugh, and won it
It is said that the superiority of the
San Diego route was fully demonstrat
ed. And now it is planned to have a
Good Roads Department at San Di
ego Exposition in 1915. The govern
ment experts are counted on to make
an exhibit and every motorist and
other roads enthusiast in the entire
country will take a keen interest in
the exhibit which should be the most
complete ever made anywhere.

SIPHON CELEBRATION FEATURES
TUCSON CITIZEN SAYS SIPHON CELEBRATION IS "A REMARKABLE
DEMONSTRATION OF THE RESOURCES OF THE YUMA VALLEY,"
AND, FURTHERS, STATES THAT ALL VISITORS CONCEDE THIS
ALL VIEWED THE GOVERNMENT WORK WITH ADMIRATION.
The Tucson Citizen, today, says:
"Speaking generally, this Siphon
Celebration is a remarkable demon
stration of the resources of the Yuma
Valley, and all of the several thou
sand visitors, from various parts of
Arizona and California concede it to
be ..such.
"The second day opened auspicious
ly with an excursion to the Laguna
lam, which the Reclamation Service
built across the Colorado river above
Yuma at a cost of about $5,000,000.
It is of the Indian weir type and will
furnish water for irrigating more than
100,000 acres of" land on both sides
of the river. Practically everyone
n Yuma, including the visitors, went
o the dam in various conveyances
and viewed the big government under
taking with great admiration.
"The dedication of the new $30,000
Elks' home, said to be the finest in the
tate, took place this afternoon with

IS WELL RECEIVED

PERITY FOR THE ENTIRE
YUMA VALLEY
THIS MARVELOUS ENGINEERING
FEAT WILL OPEN A COUN
TRY FOR SETTLEMENT
THAT WILL BLOS
SON AS THE
ROSE
That Yuma will feel almost im
mediate results from the splendid
advertising given it by the roy
al set of newspaper boosters who
are now in our midst, is just as
certain as the setting of the sun. To
the newspaper men and women who
have taken this opportunity to visit
here and see for themselves the won
ders of this section, Yuma owes a
debt of gratitude which cannot be ex
pressed in words. All have done mag
nificently, and the Arizona Republi
can among the number, in its cur
rent issue, gives a most comprehen
sive story of the celebration, even to
a verbatim account of Governor Geo.
W. P. Hunt's address. Its Yuma
story is so good that the Examiner
herewith prints it:
"The dedicatory ceremonies ,of the
Yuma million-dollar siphon today were
most simple, yet complete, beginning
early this morning with formal
speeches, continuing through the
afternoon with a most elaborate and
creditable parade, the day's program
ended tonight with a formal banquet
given by the Commercial Club to the
distinguished visitors and prominent
citizens of Yuma and Arizona.
"The day has been full of history
making events for the growing town
and the prosperous valley. Never have
so many people flocked the streets,
nor before has such a display of the
progress and public spirit been shown.
Every available accommodation has
been taken and people flock the
streets. Fully ten thousand people
saw the military and civic parade
and more than two thousand attended
the dedicatory ceremonies this morn
ing. Every train seems to bring more
people.
"Under smiling skies, with thou
sands of expectant people before them,
and the turbid waters of the muddy
Colorado swirling eighty feet out of
the mouth of the siphon, within a
stons's throw, Governor Hunt of Ari
zona and Lieutenant Governor Wal

LARGE DELEGATION OF YUMA COUNTY STOCK GROWERS ARE
EXPECTED TO ATTEND BETT ER CO-OPERATION OF CATTLE
MEN URGED SECRETARY SAM BRADNER IN CHARGE A NEW
POULTRY ASSOCIATION TO CONVENE AT THE SAME TIME.
That Phoenix expects a large dele
gation of Yuma county stock growers
to the meetings of the Arizona CaLle
Growers' Association, which meets in
the Capitay City on January 13, and
to the National Cattlemen's Associa
tion's annual convention which fol
lows two days later, is the word
brought by Ira H. S. Huggett, city
editor of the Arizona Republican.
Mr. Huggett did not return to Phoe
nix with Governor Hunt this morning,
but remained to attend the sessions
of the Arizona-California Rivers"Com
.liioSiou which meets tomorrow. In
jpeaking of the Cattlemen's meeting,
he said:
"The Capital City of Arizona is go
ing to great ends to make the meet
ing of the National Stockmen epochal,
to the National Association, to the
Arizona cattle-growers and to the
state of Arizona. The committees hav
ing charge of the arrangements ljlan
to hold the National Convention in
the handsome and commodious audi
torium of the new High School. The
sessions of the Arizona growers will
be held in the Water Users' building,
which has,, a splendid council cham
ber. Phoenix will be tastefully and
beautifully decorated, as only Phoenix
can decorate for such an occasion.
"On the 15th a trip will be made to
SEE AMERICA FIRST,
THE CRT FOR 1813
America is renowned for hr Grand
Canyon of the Colorado, for her Yel
lowstone park, for her regions of the
Cliff Dwellers, for her Yosemite, and
for her countless ranges of mountains,
and yet these go begging while the
coffers of Europe are annual iy tilled.
The remedy lies with the citizens
of those states embracing the Rocky
mountains and westward. They should
co-operate. They should begin at once.
They should aim at diverting a frac
tion of the 1913 tourists' traffic. They
should honestly advertise what they
have by way of roads, by wax of ho
tels, by way of route books, by way of
signboards, by way of garages, and ot
a fraction of the share of American
tourists' traffic that they deserve.
Si DIEGO BOOSTER
SHIPS YUMA ORANGES
M. P. Heller, San Diego's big grocer,
has been investigating Yuma oranges
and lemons, and is preparing to make
a shipment of them for a window dis
play in his store. Thus will San Di
ego boost Yuma, and San Diegans can
rest assured that Yuma will recipro
cate when the opportunity offers. ,

Joe Satterlee, a Yuma booster of
Nestor, California, is taking in this
celebration.
GROWERS WILL
AT. CAPITAL CITI JAN. 13
the diversion dam of Granite Reef,
27 miles up Salt River, where a good,
old-fashioned barbecue will be prepar
ed from Arizona grown meat, by Ari
zona meat growers. A big banquet
will be held on the night of the 16th,
to which Arizona stockmen will be
admitted by ticket; National Associa
tion members will be admited as the
guests of the Arizona men. Drives
up and down the valley are planned,
and even now gangs of men are work
ing, putting in better shape the roads
of the valley.
"The general spirit of co-operation
that is being evinced by cattlemen
all over the state to make this a
never-to-be-forgotten occasion is very
gratifying to the committee. Secre
tary Sam B. Bradner, who has charge
of some of the arrangements, has
spoken to me of the general good feel
ing that is existing among Arizona
cattlemen, and the generally expressed
opinion that it is a great thing for
Arizona to get a meeting of such na
tional importance. Secretary T. W.
Tomlinson of the National Association
will shortly move his headquarters
from Denver to Phoenix, to be on the
ground.
"A stock exhibit and the semi-annual
show of the newly-organized Poultry
Association will be in progress during
the sessions of the convention."

O
THE SIXTH COMMANDMENT O
O
"Thous shalt do no murder" O
needs to be said to a generation O
in which the fundamental bar- O
barism of lynching goes un- O
checked and almost unrebuked. O
Lynching is not always for the O
unspeakable crime, but lynch- O
ing is always in itself the un- O
speakable crime. Negroes are O
lynched for committing crimes O
for which white men would go C
unpunshed. O
"Thou shalt not murder" O
moves us to demand protection O
for the lives of 'the workers. O
Compensation laws and safe- O
guards in the event of loss of O
life or hurt to limb are good, O
but better still is adequate and O
complete protection. Industrial O
accidents and occupational dis- O
eases must go. We demand O
safety for the worker even as O
there is now security for the O
idler. The work of the toiler O
ought to be at least as free O
from peril as are the recrea- O
tions of the leisurely. Rabbi O
