THE STRIKE AT AJO.
The strike at Ajo comes as a surprise
to those familiar with conditions at
that camp. The company there has
been building a model town for its
employes, with excellent living condi
tions. This work has been gging on
under the personal direction of Mike
Curley, who has built several model
towns in Minnesota and never before
had a strike.
At Ago or Cornelia, as the new town
is called, ideal community houses of
concrete have been built for the Mexi
can employes. The company is erect
iiiir a store, which will be run on an
actual co-operative basis, the profits
going back to the employes. Model
Rrfmol buildings are being provided, in
fact, everything was designed for the
comfort and health of the employes.
The company is not yet producing
It is not earning a dollar. The big
mill is under construction, but will not
be completed and in operation for some
time. The company is not enjoying
any present benefit from the high price
THsnatches say that the electricians
struck because they are not paid a ris
ing scale such as is paid in Miami and
other camps, based on the rising price
of copper. A large number of the min
ers are reported to have followed suit.
We know nothing about the merits
of either side of the controversy except
as here stated. The New Cornelia .
Copper Company has certainly shown
great solicitude for the welfare of ite
employes in its construction plans and
.work and it is to be regretted that the
big camp in Pima county should be
christened by a strike.
That an adjustment; will be reached
fair to both employer and employe
is the hope of all interested in the de
velopment of Pima county.

the American branch, and will do so if
I can." This is practically a promise
that he intends to devote a portion of
his time to advocating the maintenance
of the rights of the countries not at
war, especially the United States.
For those who would scoff at the in
fluence held by the colonel a reference
to the past is in order. Two years
ago the administration at Washington
frowned upon a policy of preparedness.
A few congressmen and other men had
been crying for the need of such a pro
gram, but their voices did not pene
trate the surface and in the hearts of
the great mass of people there were
no reflections of their messages. Then
Rosevelt espoused the cause and laid
the dangers of the lax plan of the gov
ernment before the country in his vig
orous way. Immediately there was a
change of sentiment, a change so swift
and overwhelming that the advocates
of the "sit still" attitude were swept off
their feet, turned'about face, and forc
ed, against their own desires and con
victions to heed the demands for great
er efforts toward preparedness. As a
result of the work by Roosevelt the
last congress made the biggest appro
priation for defense purposes ever
made by any nation at peace in the
history of the world. This, mind you,
when an administration of a political
faith opposite to his had entire con
trol of the United State3 government.
It is not at all unlikely that the col
onel in his capacity as the dominant
force in the neutral nations' league
will make a significant organization
a factor of such proportions that the
ruthless disregard of the warring pow
ers for any interests except their own
will become tempered with justice
through the influence exerted by the
people not participating in the conflict.
Certainly, within the next year, as the
belligerents become more and more ex
hausted with the great struggle, will
the demands of neutral nations grow in
effect upon those nations which must
keep the god yill of the neutrals or
suffer for their disregard. There is
no man on earth today better fitted
for aligning the neutrals together for
protection than Roosevelt, even if he is
as he said: "The most private of
America's private citizens just now."
In line with this growing tendency of
assertion on the part of neutrals it
might be well to cite the recent aption
of the Brazilian Society of Interna
tional Law, which proposed to the Bra
zilian parliament that.it immediately
takfi stens to obtain co-operation
among neutral countries to safeguard
n utral commerce from demoralization
and interruption by the powers eng
gaged in the war. One idea ot tne
Smith Americans is to redraft the in
ternational law code to conform with
changed conditions due to the employ
ment in warfare of devices that were
unknown when the existing rules and
measures were laid down. This is a
imP.PRRarv nlan. for an organization
for the main enforcement of neutral
rights would have to first prepare to
revoke almost the entire code of in
ternational procedure, insofar as it ap
plies to present methods df carrying
man, particularly when drinking, and
had recently been commissioned a
If that is true this is not an attempt
to fix the facts in the case Archuleta
should never have been appointed a
deputy sheriff. The practice of plac
ing stars on the coats and w;apous
in the hands of "dangerous" men is too
for the safety of the public which they
menace. A party of Tucson deputies
about a year ago brought disgrace
upon Pima county by arresting some
Mexicans .out in the mountains they
were not even the principals whom the
oficers sought and hanking them for
the pretended purpose of making them
tell what the officers believed they
knew. In the same county, some time
later, another party of deputies open
ed fire on a passing automobile and
killed the wife of a retired officer of
the United States navy. They are now
behind the bars, where they belong.
The public is not protected by the
commissioning of these truly "danger
ous" men as deputy sheriffs, rangers,
constables or peace officers of any
description. The law will only be up
held by law-abiding, sober, responsible
