concede that there were many mem

DR. A. E. DOUGLAS IS
With the announcement of the pres
ident of the University of Arizona
that the university is to have one of
the largest telescopes in the country
calls to our attention the one who is
to be in charge of that work. The
University was fitted with the man
long before it had the observatory,
for Dr. A. E. Douglas, dean of the col
lege of liberal arts, is an astronomer
Dr. Douglas, who is a member of
the American Astronomical Society,
the Southern California Academy of
Sc'ences, Fellow of the American As
sociation for the Advancement of Sci
ence, and a Fellow of the Royal As
tronomical Society of London, spent
several years after his graduation
from college at Harvard Universtary
observatory. He later spent some time
at their station in Arequipa, Peru,
South America. In 1894 he became
associated with the Lowell observa
tory at Flagstaff, Ariz., and later lo
cated an observatory at Tacubayan,
Dr. Douglas has visited practically
every observatory of note both in this
country and abroad.
With the opportunities that Dr.
Douglas will have with a new and
large telescope, it is sincerely hoped
that the state will maintain and make
productive the observatory that has
been given to it. The opportunities
are great, and the man at the head
of the work is one whose researches
.are already well known and respected.;

Six hundred and thirty-three saloons

The breweries control 4952, or 70

state which "has tried prohibition has
found that the best way to boom the

Lower taxes. Of the three states

Greatly decreased crime. The first
effect of a prohibition law is noted
in a marked decrease in arrests for
drunkenness and crime.
Less pauperism. As John Burns
says, "The reason so many people
can't make both ends meet is because
they make one end drink."
Lower living costs. The cost of
living is high because you are helping
to support the men who do not pro
duce their own food and clothing.
Less brind pigging and bootlegging.
Exact investigations have shown that
there are many times as many federal
licenses in excess of state licenses in

NOW, THAT ITS OVER.
The Arizona Republican says: Now,
that it is all over, friendships that have
been torn or fractured may be patched
up good as new and warranted for
four years. Families whose members
have been estranged during the last
three or four months are reunited.
Even within the church schisms had
crept in breeding doubt by members
concerning the soundness of the hope
of heaven entertained by other mem
bers because of heretical views on
the subject of Wilson, Hughes, Hunt
or Campbell. But these schisms are
now healed. We would no more in
quire now whether an otherwise God
fearing man was for Hughes or Wil
son than we would inquire what opin
ion his forefathers might have had
on the subject of infant damnation or
baptism, whether by sprinkling or im
mersion. Even a radical Democrat may now
make a broad distinction between a
Republican and a horse thief and the
most conservative Republican is pre
pared to admit that a Democrat pos
sesses many points of superiority ovei

This is the prediction of shipbuild
ers who are caught in the midst of the
$50,000,000 boom which has struck lo
cal maritime circles.
The Capto, a 7500 ton steel freighter,
has just been launched and on top of
that is coming a 10,000 ton vessel from
the ways of the Union Iron works, a
Charles Schwab subsidiary. This steel
steamship, more than 400 feet long,
will slide into the water on November
It is the first of four 10,000 ton ves
sels now under construction at the
Schwab plant. There is also an 8000
ton freighter almost completed as to
The Capto was the first to be laun
ched of four ships Moore & Scott have
under construction. One of these is
a sister ship to the Capto, which by the
way is a duplicate of the Strathdene,
which was sunk by the U-53. The
other two are 9400 ton vessels.
Norwegian shipping men are to get
these steamships. In fact, they are
getting about everything they can buy
from the shipyards of the Pacific
coast. As a consequence, hardly is a
contract let to the shipyards and a
keel laid, when the vessel, while still
on paper, is sold at a big advance.
Such was the case of the largest
vessel ever contracted for, now under
construction at the D. Hanlon yards.
The Western Fuel Company ordered
this big craft, but before the ribs were
half in place, it was sold at about
50 per cent profit.

This plan provides for the organiza
tion of the farmers of a county into
groups with a paid membership, rep
resenting leading farmers in every
community of a county as active work
ers on the improvement program, with
an advisors council made up of the
leaders in special fields of agriculture
to direct and supervise the work.
The plan was outlined at a recent
visit of R. L. Simmons, of the United
States department of agriculture, and is
alone the lines of a somewhat similar
arrangement that is reported to be
markedly successful in eastern states.
Mr. Simmons is in charge of the ex
tension work in northwestern states.
In line with his suggestions, organ
ization campaigns have been started
in Canyon and Lewis counties. Simi
lar campaigns will later be organized
in all the other counties which em
ploy or desire to employ a county

aithoush the farmers were exceedingly
busy, it is reported the proposed or
ganization met with hearty support.
Tn Lewis county, organization startea
with 300. paid memberships, while in
r.anvon county the organization is ex
pected to start with not less than 250
farmers. In both counties a farm du-
reau news will be published by a
committee of farmers.
