There is still ample supply of the pa- Iers on sale at me news stands and at mager of the Arizona Democrat, said: "It is I ilie finest edition ever issued in the I town and a great performance from a newspaper man's standpoint." A. M. W'iatt. if Wiatt's Monumental ' Works, saiti he was astonished at the completeness of the paper. He bought ' The Republican office, though they are' hundred copies to lake east with hinx going rapidly. It. is desired that all bfl ; where he is soon going on a business sold and sent out as quickly as possi- : and ;'!oHcre trir. ble.

Ol.erfelder of the valley is to have the greatest benefit J National Pank of Arizona, "and The every copy should be put in circulation i Republican may well feel proud of it." at the earliest possible niomen:. The! "Say anything you want to for me," postage is only two cents on the three! was the reply of R. II. Greene when Homeseekers' sections of the p.iper asked for an expression of opinion. which contains the inatrer of special interest to the eastern reader, or three cents for the entire paper. So many pleasing tilings were said of the paper yesterday by so many good citizens it is desirable to add a few more expressions to those published the day before. It there is any citizen who has not yet seen a copy these remarks ought surely to remind him lie should do so at once: John J. Sweeney of the First National Rank of Arizona said of the Homeseek ers' Edition that it was the best thing of the kind that had ever been issued in Arizona and he hoped tha the peo ple would now do their part and see. that it was given the widest possible distribution. He said that there had never before been such an opportunity to inform strangers of the magnificent resources of the valley. Mr. Sweeney said he hoped that such an edition would be issued once a year at least. He would impress upon those who ob tain copies of the paper not to allow them to lay around their offices but to forward tiiem to persons residing in distaiit s'ates. He said that noth ing in the way of an advertisement of ihe valley could take the place of such editions. The very many advertise ments in the paper would be of great interest to those contemplating a change of residence. They can see by such advertisements more 01 the busi ness of the community than could be told them in columns of reading mat ter. Said H. J. MeClung of the Phoenix National Bank: "I have not had a chance yet to go over the Homeseekers- Edition of The Republican care fully but I have seen enough to con vince me that it will be a most help ful aid to the upbuilding of the com munity. The name of it has been ap propriately chosen. It is a Home seekers' Edition, intended for the homeseeker and furnishes him with ail the information regarding mis country that he needs to know and prepares him to come to make an intelligent personal investigation. In fact, except to satisfy himself he need not make the investigation." "It was a great paper." said Dick Gerard of the Gerard-Jones Dry Goods company. "It cannot fail to bring re sults which will be beneficial alike to the homeseeker and the Sait River valley." T. II. I.andis. general agent. Ran dolph Lines, said: "I wish to congrat ulate Th Republican on the fine spe cial edition issued Wednesday morn ing. This edition is in splendid con trast to tt,?- efforts of another news paper in the city that is trying to make it appear that conditions are such that it would be dangerous to invest in business enterprises in Phoenix. The Republican in its good work is only holding its place at the head of the column. I am still a believer in five acres, a cow. twelve chickens and in dependence." Secretary Cowgill of the board of trade, said: "The siecial edition Is a wonder. It would do a town the size of Los Angeles great credit and I don't see how The Republican could afford to get out such a paper. What im pressed me most was the reliability of every article published. Even.' writer dealt with a subject with which he was familiar and an authority upon. I have examined, many special editions but I The reader be this time knows how The Republican feels about it so he is men lv asked to consider that it is en dorsed by Mr. Greene. Dwight R. Heard added his endorse ment by saying: "The strongest fea ture of the paper, which was fine In Its entirety, was the excellent letters from the mr.ny fanners in the valley showing what they have accomplished here. They were well written, concise and the stories told with candor. Every farmer should arrange to secure copies containing his letter and mail them to friends they know in other states. In this wav they can do a great deal for the benefit of the country, by letting those seeking new homes, know the best place in the world for them to come to." J. L. Irvln expressed his hearty ap proval of the edition and said that he had mailed a considerabe number to his southern friends and he believed that they would be convinced by the fine arguments presented, that the Salt River valley is the best place in the world for the investor. A. a. Hulelt of Elvey and Hulett. said that it was one of the most at tractive issue he had ever seen, and contained a mass of desirable Infor mation couched in clear language. He thought great results would be seen In the near future. It was a great event for the valley. The illustrations were very fine, said W. H. Rerryman of Marshal Kay and Co.. realty dealers, and- livened the subject matter and attracted the read er to a mufa i-urcf,.! ..... ..... 1 nf 1. j articles. His company had already sent out a large number of papers to answer inquiries regarding the valley. He would not be surprised most any day to meet immigrants drifting in. who would remark that they were at tracted here by the Homeseeker's edi tion of The Republican. L. LaChance of the Wakelln Grocery company remarked that he had the night before, read the issue through. and found it everything that could ' be desired for the enlightenment of the homeseeker. as well as many here! who were not as thoroughly posted as they should be on the valley. K. T. I'ollings had not had time to wade through the wealth of informa tion the issue contained, but from a Weak Little Boys may become fine strong men. Some of the strong men of to day were sickly boys years tgo. Many of them received Scott's Emulsion at their mother's knee. This had a power in it that changed them from weak, delicate boys into strong, robust boys. It has the same power to-day. Boys and girls who are pale and weak get food and energy out of SCOTT'S EMULSION. It makes children grow. i i All DranUU; SOc. and $1.00. pers will be distributed, good results can be counted on. And it is a good thing here: it awakens people, gives them Inspiration for greater efforts, and helps to establish confidence in our business institutions. W. K. James said that between bus iness and the great mass of informa tion contained in the issue, he had had little time for anything else. He woufd have to get up early in the morning if he kept up with his reading, but he saw that there was a variety of mat ter oils a variety of subjects which would appeal to the many readers and their particular tastes and desires for knowledge of the country's resources. He was sending out a quantity of cop ies to prospective residents of the valley. Andrew Miller, of the Hotel Adams Pharmacy, complimented the issue, and said that if there was anything one wanted to know about the valley it was certainly contained in the big edition. HARRIMAN IS SIXTY ' BUT WONT QUIT YET labor organizations on the other. I n fer to the fundamental relations be tween those who furnish the funds for investment and- those who give their services to make the investment profitable. Industry Upset by Restriction. "It Is quite obvious that restriction of business brings about uneconomical conditions throughout the Industrial structure. When men are working on part time, or under limitations as to hours and conditions, there is a tre mendous waste in earning capacity and productive energy. There is less money to be spent by the workers and consequently less business to be done to supply the wants they can afford. A family makes one bag of flour go where two were used before; the old clothes are made over instead of hav ing new ones bought. "Multiply this bv eighty million and J you can see what it means to have the nation economize. Add the distrust naturally produced among those who have the monev to invest and there Is a combination of forces at work jvith cumulative effect, the result of which it Is hard to forecast. Earnings decrease because of the slackening volume o business; capital becomes timid and rates for money high, and there is correspondingly less to be paid for the labor necessary to carry out the work that we have before us. The question of whether wages will decrease does not depend upon my attitude or the altitude of any other manager of industry toward labor. It depends upon whether we are going to have -the money to pay labor to do the work that we ought to do. -I believe that things " will right themselves when people have had a chance to understand the situation, provided that we eliminate the self seeker. What we have got to have in political and in business life is the man who !s willing to work for others and doesn't undertake to move the pieces on the chessboard solely with a view to what he thinks to be his own Interest. If you ask me when I believe an equilibrium will be reached and confidence restored, I say frankly that I don't know. The patient Is now un doubtedly under treatment that will prove efficacious In the end. but the question still remains whether the dis ease may not prove very serious be fore the corrective treatment gets the upper hand. Where Railroad Men Have Failed. "Mind. I do not lay all the blame on the public, or even on the politicians. The railroad men themselves are to I blame for a great deal of what has happened, and they ought to recognize it at this time, when they have their own worries with them. If the rail road men of the United States had learned to trust each other years ago a great deal of what has been suffer ed would have been avoided. There was a time when the)- had the right to make agreements covering traffic and rates, but what was the result? An agreement was hardly made before somebody whom it bound, issued an order violating its provisions. That sort of thing was the root of destruc tive competition and subjected the railroads to much of the trouble that they have suffered since in being made the victims of any one who wanted to build an unnecessary com petitive line for the purpose of selling it out. "I am not opposed to railroad regu lation, provided it is coupled with rail road protection. Long ago I expressed the view that regulation even to the point of allowing the Interstate Com merce Commission to fix the rates, was not to be combatted provided the government would allow the roads to make agreements with each other through the repeal of the Sherman law. The protection of the public in the making of such agreements is the de gree of publicity now insisted upon in respect of other railroad affairs, and of that I am heartily in favor. Sensible regulation, protection of the railroads against unnecessary competition, and publicity are In my mind tho three things that will set the railroads right with the people in the end. But, mean while, the men who have the responsi bilities of the railroads on their shoul ders must keep to their task and not give them over into Incompetent hands. There'll be no trouble about training up the men to run the railroads in the next generation if the proper conditions and discipline arc established. "And will there be the work to do. if confidence 13 restored and the proper relationships established? Of tours-; there will. There Is as great a possi bility of growth ahead of the railroad? in the next ten years if only we go at it rightly. Within the lifetime of some of our children the population of this country no doubt will have reached 200,000,000. and, the system of Ameri can railroading that has developed to meet the needs of 80,000,000 of people is in its infancy. But, as I have said, the self-seeker has got to be eliminated and the people at large have got to come to an appreciation of the under lying relationships of the factors in the problem. When those two things are in process of accomplishment it wT b3 time enough to talk about retiring." New York Times. KNAPP ON U. P. CASE Chairman of Commission Says Alleged Abuses No Lonoer Exist. A special dispatch to one of the Wall street news bureaus from Washington yesterday quoted Chairman Knapp of as saying, with regard to the purposed action for the dissolution of the merger of the t'nion and Southern Pacific Railroad systems, that of three appar ent grounds for a prosecution under the Sherman law, two namely, th1? contract between the Harriman road and the San Pedro road and the con tract for Joint and alternate control with the Rock Island of the Chicago & Alton have been abrogated, and there Is no longer ground for com plaint. He is also quoted as doubting if action would He to correct an abusa that it Is conceded no longer exists. Mr. Knapp continued, according ta the dispatch, as follows: As to the third case, based on Union Pacific ownership of Southern Pacific shares, there Is a close question whether this constitutes violation of the Sherman law. The Union Pacific had r-Ienty of connections to the East but only one to California, which Is over the Southern Pacific system. In the event of the Southern Pacific fall ing Into hostile hanSs at Huntington's dtath. Harriman would have no close connection, and would be forced tj build. So he set about to buy in the Southern Pacific to assure the con nection and protect his property. I doubt if the proceeding will be held illegal. If a decision should be obtained holding that the Union Pacific control cf Southern Pacific must be given up. such a construction would also apply to the New York Central's ownership of control of the Lake Shore and tho Michigan Central, competing between Chicago and Puffalo. Again there Is the Pennsylvania Railroad, which owns the stock cf the Pennsylvania company, controlling in turn the parallel lines of the Pennsyl vania west of Pittsburg. The number of illustrations is long, and the largo question arises whether It would be for the public Interest to have these sys tems br-ven Ui into their component pans. Nobody can tell with any confidence how the Supreme Court will decide th. case of the ownership of the Southern Pacific by the Union Pacific, as con stituting a violation of the Sherman law.

Still Too Many Moves Left to Fulfill Last Year's Declaration Edward H. Harriman at 60 is much too busy to think about retiring from the railroad business. On his last birth day a year ago next Tuesday, he thought that another twelvemonth would find him ready to quit the game but yesterday he told a Times report er that there are still too many moves to be made. He doesn't propose to stop even to consider retiring until the complications on the industrial chessboard have been resolved suffic iently to enable him to see clearly a little distance ahead. Until then Mr. Harriman thinks he owes It to the 40.- in his system to stay "on the Job." This definition of his position Mr. Harriman made in the course of hisnf- I ternoon constitutional along Fifth ' Avenue yesterday. The reporter met hasty nconnoissame of what neede.1 "V L :B . , extensive exploration, he saw it was!'1' now things looked from Mr. Harrl most valuable to evervone both in!man!' vlew p"int oC t0 vears' 'ac''n Phoenix abd Out of Phoenix, and the I0"'' -lP'' "f days.

He had read its columns with great interest and be lieved it marked an epoch in Phoenix newspaperdom and Phoenix proeress. It was a splendid and creditable work, said ('. H. Davidson, and it will be read with great interest overywhere especially by those who may be con templating a change of residence.

"No sensible man would undertake now to predict what is going to happen or to make a com prehensive statement of present condi tions. There are too many moves yet to be made before any degree of sta bility is reached to make such a sur vey possible." "Who is going to make them?" "You know as well as I do." return ed Mr. Harriman sharply. "The peo ple of this country have got to be brought to a proper appreciation of ! the I r. t er.reln t ion h.ttu'Mn tha varionu factors in industry. Then they must see to It that the administration of law is conducted in their interest and not as a matter of personal caprice." "And you are going to stay in the game until this comes about, Mr. Har- 1 riman?" the reporter asked. . j Too Busy to Retire. "I don't want to say how long I shall stay in harness. A year ago, when the Interstate Commerce Commission was at work. I said something about retiring in another year. Well, it isn't a case of changing my mind, but of not having had time to think about re tirement. I looked then for some fall ing off in business, but for nothing , like what has occurred. I didn't ex ; pect to see GO per cent of the decrease that has been -realized. Under such conditions there Is nothing to do but to stick until matters get into cont ent hands, at least, and until con- nce has been restored. "Just now we are hearing about the wages problem. But do people appre ciate that, with a given opportunity for the development of business, the more we have to pay for capital, the less there is to pay for wages? I am not referring to the scale of wages, but to the amount that we can spend for wages. And In order to get capital on reasonable terms we have got to have good credit, and credit must be maintained by surplus earnings .There Is the whole thing in a nutshell. "A wrong idea prevails in a good many quarters about this relationship of capital and labor. We men who manage the roads are not the capital ists. The security holders from whom we borrow the money are the capital ists, and they are In partnership with the wage earners in trying to make a fair profit out of serving the public. It Is our duty as managers of the roads to preserve the proper rela tions between the different factors so far as we can. But what becomes of our efforts when unwise governmental Interference, resulting in such a con dition of distrust as prevails at pres ent, jumbles up all the factors in one conglomeration? "Ge careful, now, not to confuse the terms. By surplus earnings, I do not mean the payment of dividends, but the ability to earn something tbeyond what is required to meet bare charges and expenses. So in speaking of the partnership between the wage earners and the stockholders, I do not limit myself to the relations that exist or that may exist between the corporate organizations on the one side, and the SPEC I A L 'MC AND WEL Tl FASHION'S FAVORITES FOR APRIL LISLE GLOVES. 16 and 12 button length of fine silk finish Lisle Gloves' in tan. black and white; for service and style better than silk.
