This is the day appointed for th taxpayers of Phoer.ix to decide whether they shall vote upon themselves a bonded debt of Three Hunderd Thous and dollars for the purpose of duplicat ing the system of waterworks now under construction by the Phoenix Water Company. When active agents of a doubtful enterprise approach a business man and urge him to mortgage his prop erty and join them in their scheme, he reflects carefully before he takes their advice. A very active junta is urginsj the people of this little community to vot a great blanket mortgage upon themselves a mortgage which would call for Six Hundred and Seventy-five Thousand dollars out of the pockets of the taxpayers. x This amount would be lessened, of course, by the net receipts of the pro posed duplicate water system. But there wouldn't be any nets receipt from such a plant when it had to di vide the business with another plant. And within ten years it would be nec essary to have another bond issue f get mone:: for new mains throughout the system. Fuel at the rate of $1,000 per month, and wasres and repair bills would taV. up all the receipts. The sreat debt would have to be paid by extra taxes. For the:;e reasons the cautious busi ness man will te just as much opposed to saying "yes" to the bond proposition as he would to the proposition that he give a personal mortease. The bond proposition should be de feated by an overwhelming majority. It has no basis of :easo:i under it, and so far as its supporters generally are concerned is founded on henest preju dice and the groundless presumption that the city would have a monopoly vt the business. When it was ascertained beyond question that the existing water sys tem was to he fully reconstructed, why was there such a suspicious hast': to vote a bonded debt on the people before the '-ornpletion of that recon struction? Why was it impracticable to defer a bond election until next fcpring? It was clear tc every man that if the water company should for any reason fail to put in a thoroughly modern and satisfactory system, it would be th'i Fole loser. The people would vote for a municipal plant, regardless of th expense and loss entailed. Kyerybody knows that if the water company were- to sct in bad faith with the people on this work, of reconstruc tion, the vote for the bonds at the next election woul be practically unaninDus. Then why this outcry for a bond Is rue and the committal pf the town to a losing venture in the very middle of this reconstruction work? What are the motives behind th's Imperious demand that the taxpayers walk up to the polls like Iambs and surrender their own convictions? Whi is to benefit from this scheme? A great majority of the people behind It are without ulterior motives, un questionably, but what are the hidden reasons for this determination to fore? the city Into an undertaking whicn any citizen individually would reject without hesitation? There . might have been forceful reasons for carrying the bond prop osition, had it provided for the pur chase of the present system, without graft and at its actual value. But the i all under which people must act to day contains no provision for anything but the construction of a new system by the city. The leaders of the bond movement admit that it is their puriose to ig nore the present plant and install n duplicate system. And it must be remembered that no discretion is left to the council. It must issue the bonds, and proceed with UNIQNBEL the work, , according to the call. It cannot wait for the completion of thu water company's construction pro- gramme and then refuse to issue the bonds. . '' An order issued by the people today must be obeyed. If the debt i3 in- currcd today it will stand, a black and crushes monument to the frenzied folly of a people who, through prej udice, surrendered their judgment into the keeping of a few men. . Dodging the Revenue Question. Confronted with the figures which Fhow that the whele town of Phoenix furnishes a revenue not exceeding $40,000 a year to the water company, and confronted with figures that can- not b disputed and which show that were the city to get nil the business its plant wculd be operated at a loss, the-managers of the bond campaign take refuge In the statement that the water company conceals something; that its receipts must be greater than it chairs. Why didn't the Citizens' cemmitteo Investigate. Why didn't they send e-uch reliable accountants as W. C. Foster a.nd U J. Rice with a committee ol' their own members to ascertain the truth? The:e men, or any other Intelligent committee .could have ascertained In ;.tvo hours or less Just what the reve- nues are. The list of customers could have been examined, and a fcoting mad of their total payments to tho waiter company each month. And there are a dozen men around town '.vho hf.v? rcted as' collectors at cne time or another for the water com lur.',; but are now cngjgod n other business. All of Uiem have always agreed that the company's grots re ceipts aggregate about $3,400 a month. With considerable cunning some of the leaders of the Citizens committee insisted upon complicating this prob- lem xth nr. Inquiry Into the cost of , tho plant an entirely Irrelevant and ' A 1-1 . I - . O.!. 1 time a 1 mima-iei iai quusnuii u. l i o.ucstion which would b- important only In case negotiations were cn for the purchase of the plant. Such an 1:1- pockets. ciuiry, of course, would wnsume rfuch j time. i Facts That Permit No Dispute. But we fepeat a complete l'sl or the J If thf.re Woull be such a profit in company's customers and the to'nl operating two water systems in Phoe rc venue, derived from them could huve njx wny j3 jt lhal tnc. bondholders, of been ascertained in two hours. Why was rot this done? Why was I Superintendent Heap's Invitation for a dozen men to come and examine his records on this point ignored? It was Ignored because it was known that Harry Heap was tellln-j the truth j when he Bald the gross revenue? cf the company did not exceed $10,CC9 a year. J The invitation was -ignored because it was known that the rerult of tho invcFtigation would d'-'Ftroy the wholi fabric of the bond proposition. It was Ignored because the leaders knew that tc operate a city plant would cost at least $1,000 a month or $12,000 a year for fuel alone; and for wages and repairs in addition lo fuel, "$5,500 more, or $17,500 a year; that to this must be added $15,000 for interest. $12,000 for Finking fund, and $4,1C0 fcr hydrant rentals to the water company which cannot be evaded, or a total actual cash outlay of $18,600 annually, year after year; that to this must be added $1S,CC0 a year for depreciation of plant, or a Ftaggering total of $83, f!C0 a year fcr cost of operation. The Invitation was Ignored because the leaders knew that a frightful do-1 flcit would have to be acknowledged ' for the city plant when It wa3 ascer tained beyond their further bluffing that $10,000 was the gross revenue. And they were Ptill less Inclined to have the facts brought formally before the public when they remembered that along with these figures the pub lic would digest the fact that the city plant at most could not expect more than half of thla revenue of $40,000 a year, when competing with the water oomtiany. And they knew, finally, that thia gross revenue could not be increased, because it would be shown that at this very time the water company is col lecting, water rentals from every house and lent and shack In the entire city, additions and suburbs, except an in slgnillcant total of 64 houses. It Is much mre comfortable, in fact, to Ignore the question of revenue and taxation, and say "Tell with the wa ter company!" But One ay to Pay Taxes. Excitement and prejudice may be useful aids in leading thoughtless citizens to .vote, a crushing bond ed debt upon themselves, but when tax- paying time comes around excitement and prejudice won't produce anything the taxpayer has to dig Into his sav ings, or borrow the money. Unwlse Leaders. If a duplicate, municipal water sys tem would be a profitable enterprise. the same enterprise would be, profitable in1' the hands, of private corporation. I Mayor LVnrett clearly pointed out In Hs lucid address Thursday night that there absolutely no restriction on the granting ol another franchise by the city. Capital is always seeking Investment. It will gladly go into any business which will assure a revenue of 5 per cent on the investment. If the business of supplying water to the inhabitants of Phoenix is such a profitable industry, why doesn't capi tal come i;i her? and'ecnipete with the Phoenix Water company? That company, with the whole field to itsef fcas ,ed a strugsling exis.eiH-e. d every resj,:ent of the town knows ' ,t wuh tne f eId jivied between two j water tompanif,s or between a .;oir.- pany and the city, great loss would fall upon both. That is why there has been no move? toward a competing company. Some of the most speculative men Li the city are whooping It up for the bonds. If they honestly believe theri; is a fleld here for tNVO water systems, why have they held back from getting a franchise and going into the busi ness? Maybe it is patriotism? Maybe they are too public spirited to take the profits which they consider the whole ' community should have? J Should . The Republican urge then.-? men to form another company and go into the water business, and should we insist that they mortgage their pro;- rty wherewith, to obtain the money for the enterprise, they would consider us very impertinent. Yt, they are usr.lg every form of persuasion and pressure to induce citi zens to vote a blanket mortgage upon themselves. And they can't get away from the lact that they are urging the taxpayers to go into an enterprise which would not pay a private corporation and which must inevitably entail a loss of at least $30,000 a year which the tax pavers must make up from thei OWtJ the Phoenix Water company overlook tho bonanza whit h thut company ought t j,ave jn operatins wiihojt tompati tion? Why don't Ihese bor.dulccr j '.n I sist upon getting the interest upon their bonds? If the company were get tin any revciiJe atove the cost of op eration wouldn't the bondholders in r.ist upon the' application of thii, rev cr.us to their intcrcft? Aud it the int.-i- est wasn't paid wouldn't they foreclose on the property forthwith, get control of it. and divert all the golden stream into their own coffers? Is it supposed by eane men that bond-buyers are eo senseless as to permit debtors t: stand them off when there is any show to collect any tiling? The bond:? of the Phoenix Water company are kicking about in the financial markets, selling at any old price there is practically no market for thorn. There are In this country thousands upon thousands of shrewd capitalists who are on the outlook for bargains. If there was a bargain In Phoenix Water company bonds, those shrewd men would buy them and demand tho payment of interest. And failure to pay Interest when the company was able to pay would bring on a foreclos- ure of the mortgage at once. The truth Is that the Phoenix Water rompany has had a precarious exist ence when paying no interest except that upon tho original debt of 560,000 and paying timply the operating ex penses. As to operating expenses, Paul Brizard of the Phoenix Wood and Coal company informs The Republican that the fuel bills, paid to him by the waterworks plant for years have aver aged $1,000 a month $12,000 a .year. The truth is that a group of the present bondholders, realizing that their investment is worthless as it stands, and hoping that Phoenix will grow to proportions which will yield a better revenue, decided some months ago to completely reconstruct the plant. And they are engaged in an enter prise from which the average investor would shrink. And in the face of these incontro vertible fact?, a junta of municipal ownership, enthusiasts insists . that while a single plant c annot be made I J to fay a -profit, two plants would-do a paying business! The duty -of every cKeii today 1"; to defeat the bond proposition. According to some orators, slavery to pay a water bill. it is What an opportunity M. H. Sher man overlooked a few wec-ks ago! Why did he refuse to bevoir.e "finan cially interested" in the P.ladder? It may be easy today to dc-lge the question of revenue and cost of opera tic n of a 'duplicate vat?r system but these questions cannot be dodged when taxpaying time comes. Should such a calamity be fall Phoe nix as the success of the bond prop osition today. It would be regarded within three years as the most remark able occurence on record. For before that time not a man In all Phoer.ix could be foi;nd who would admit that he had ever supported the scheme. To fcar ,ne town of tne bencfit3 0r the Tonto Basin road and at the same time load It up with a debt of Thre Hundred Thousand dollars for a dup licate water plant, would be to drop the- bone for a shadow, most foolishly. And the unimals are that foalish cnly In fables. In its last despairing howls in an effort to eJrn the money of the Citiz ens' committee, the Evening IJladder was stil unafcle to explain whether it applied to . M. II. Sherman for $1,000. Hut everybody knows that if Mr. Sher man tad become "Interested" in the Bladder his investment, would have had no effect on the attitude of thi aforesaid Bladder toward the bond proposition. S?o far as the water supply in Phoe r.ix concerned, it is now abundant, and has been ever rince the installa tion of the r.ew pumping machi'iery. The enormous t;uantity of four million gallons daily ia pinnpcdjnto t.ie Etand- plpo r.nd r.;iins, a gt eater consumption per capita tl.;:n in any other town in the United States. And the rates arc lower than l:i either Prescott or Tuc son. Th defective feature of thi systei.-i as -t now is involves pressure, or.iy. And within a few months this defect will be a thing of the past. A Los Cluladar.os flexicanos.

It is gratifying to nate that th.r Army and Navy Journal is overcoming the natural fcfling of delicacy that re strains representatives of the regular army from emphatically calling atten tion to the plain truth that, "reorgan ize" the national guard as you will you cannot majce it the equivalent of an equal number of regular troops In tljo military establishment of the United States. The trouble with the national guard is not a question of equipment, discipline or military efficiency. How ever capable a fighting force it may be come, it will remain a state force and not a national force. Its members will be no more subject to the orders of the president than other able-bodied citi zens of military ae. and under no more rtringent lejral obligation to vol unteer into the national service iii case of need. The word "national" in the title of the national guard is mean ingless.
