LEAVE PEACE TO THE PRESIDENT
"Think war, talk war, make war, and leave peace to the
President" This statement made by B. Baruch, head of the
War Industries Board is one well worth, heeding.
Without the united effort of a united nation we can not keep
up the war pace that we have started and which is making itself
felt in the war zone now And we must keep it up.
Our President and his advisers have at hand not only true
data on the situation in Europe with all its shades of significance
but understand the sentiment of the American people concerning
an inconclusive peace as well. We can trust our Government to
tell us the truth and to play fair with us. Let's leave the peace
talk to them.
PROTECT THE INJURED
The voters of Arizona should forever put out of commission
the ambulance chasers by voting for the proposed compensation
law, proposition 100 on your ballot. This law covers every class
of injury and you get the' money, not one dollar going to the pro
fessional personal injury lawyer or for court fees. There is no
uncertainty in the law and it insures you against injury without
cost. Don't believe the profesional agitator or those whose in
terest lies in carrying injury cases into court, when they tell you
that you are not protected by the proposed law.
Practically every one was atrocious and not committed while the
murderer was under the influence of liquor, which heretofore was
alleged to be the cause of crime. Do you, people of Arizona,
want to feel that your laws are protecting your life and prop
erty, or would you rather live under the present lax laws for the
punishment of crime ? Vote for your own safety and the securi
ty of life in the state by making your X in the square to the
left of proposition 306 on yur ballot.
SEIZURE LAW IS HELD
The Miner is in receipt of a communication signed "A Cit
izen", but evidently from the anti-capital punishment league,
which prates about the laws of God and Christ's dealings with of
fenders. The "barbarous custom" of hanging murderers has
been abolished in many countries and many states, and in every
one crime of a capital nature has increased. It is well known
that in Maine, where no hangings have been legally carried out
in a hundred years, more muiders have been committed per cap
ita than in the states of Pennsylvania and New York, where
there are mixed peoples and where it would be expected that
murders would be excessive. But New York and Pennsylvania
.hang murderers. Italy, of all countries of Europe, has more
murders per capita than any of its sister countries, and it abol
ished capital punishment more than 50 years ago. There must
bei some deterrant for crime. The fear of being shut up in a
comfortable penitentiary a few years for the horrible murder
of some innocent person, is not enough. The only fear of the
criminal is the dangling noose and the knowledge that should he
slay his fellow man he may hang for it. The safety of society
is in the speedy punishment of crime, and the fact that men con
victed of capital crimes arrive at the penitentiary "without a
cent in their pockets" has nothing to do with it. Look over the
murders committed since Arizona abolished capital punishment.

THE STAR IN THE WINDOW
By Genevieve Potter Case and Dolly
That bright blue star in it's pure
So proudly speaks from it's window
Speaks of a lad so brave and true,
So strong, so straight, clean hearted
A lad who has gone with a heart to
With thoughts of victory burning
A hero who gave up all earthly bliss,
Mothers fond embrace, love's cling'
Ambition, aims, life's hopes aye all;
He laid aside, at his country's call.
ror the Freedom of all he went to
Foi u and me, and the triumph of
Lo! the blue star has gone from out
And the gold star hallows the lonely
It says, a flower of manhood fell
On fields afar, mid battle's shell.
Splendid and brave, he smiled and
That lasting peace might conquer in
0, grieving mourners, for the men so
Who fight and die for our red, white
Know, O know, as you kiss the red,
Their souls have sped to salute their
And God in his boundless love and
Has prepared for them a glory place.
And their spirits will speak to you
softly and low,
And hover near you where'er you may

Judge Sam L. Pattee, of the Super
ior Court of Pima county, in the mat
ter of McArthur Brothers against the
State of Arizona, an action wherein
the company sought the recovery of
an automogile that had been seized
under the new prohibitory law, held
that the law was unconstitutional.
The complainants attacked the consti
tutionality of the law on three points,
1 That the governor's proclama
tion calling the legislature into spe
cial session did not provide for such
2 That the automobile seizure
was an additional punishment over
and above the penalty specified in
the state constitution.
3 That the law violated both the
state and federal constitutions in that
it did not provide the owner of an au
tomobile seized under the law with due
process of law to combat forfeiture
The court sustained all of the ob
In rendering his opinion Judge Pat-
"This law appears to have been
drawn by someone who was in favor
of prohibition, but not its enforce
ment", and further stated; "At the be
ginning, of the argument the court ex
pressed its opinion concerning this re
markable statute perhaps unwisely,
but a further study of its provisions
has in no wise modified the views
there expressed. Why an act was
drawn which was subject to so many
objections is to the ordinary mind in
conceivable". While this decision does not bind
the other courts of the state, it is more
than likely that it will stand. Judge
Pattee is one of the learned jurists of
the state and his judgment will be ac
cepted by all the other courts until the
supreme court passes upon the subject.
