Penitentiary and Associated Charities not Included ' in the above, but should be addB,l- The Saloons contributed 2.250 out of 2.647 criminal cases In li. This Immense sum of over HALF A MILLION DOLLARS, diverted from legitimate business channels, has driven taxation to "its highest legal llmii" and "precipitated a financial climax for which there is no comjwn satlng advantage" and no remedy ex cept the immediate closing of all the Saloons and liquor houses In the county. When the farmers and business men handle this 8579.118.54 whlcn iB now pouring into the liquor sellers' pockets, there will be a "Boom In the Valley" which will cause every one t- acknowledge that the present condi tions are "as deplorable as they arc unwarranted" and inexcusable. REMEMBER $34,433.81 "f this amount falls upon the county as DIRECT taxation. These figures are the result of careful investigation of the records by Lawyer Cassidy, one of our most con servative and reliable Attorney's-, and have the endorsement of the officials of the different offices Dug up a Live Man. 'The Liquor Dealer's Ptihlle.ll v Com miUie has, like the witch of Endor, disturbed the graves of three genera tions to elicit testimony against twen tieth century prohibition of its traffic. Josh Billings once said that he hal raid four shilling:-, to hear Boh Inger so!l on the "Mistakes of Moses'' but he would gladly give five hundred .dollar to hear Moses on the "Mistakes of P.(,l Iligrrsoll.'1 We have been freely in- j formed of the liquor sellers' interpre- , tutlon of the views of a multitude of i . dead men on prohibition in Maricopa county bui we ivould be willing to take up a generous collection to hear any one of these dend men give their views as to the rumscllers' business and ar guments In Phoenix, Arizona, In April, 1P08. t'nfortunately. the Ananias Club woke up one man whom they thought i dead. Rev. Robert J. Burdette, the once 1 "J famous editor of the Burlington Hawk-Eye, and now the popular pas tor of the Temple Baptist church of 1.0 Angeles. Dr. Burdette Immedi ately "sat up and took notice" and made a few remarks which must hav made the ears of the Publicity Com mittee burn. The hyiocriticnl mis representation of good men which has characterized the literature of the li quor side in this contest has won many votes for prohibition. It is well that the campaign is near Its close for If there were time for a few more men like Robert J. Burdette. and many of them have been quoted in favor of the glnmill. to speak there would not be enough left of the saloon to prohibit. "Whom the gods would destroy they first make inad." Surely every indi cation shows that the gods have It in for the saloons of Maricopa County for they have certainly turned its ad vocates and defenders clean daffy unio silliness. Live m-n, who do their own thinking and prefer to handle their own money, do not allow their nosc to remain between the thumb and first finger of the proprietors of the Phoe nix "nose-aint factories." Personal Responsibility The voters of Maricopa county have today, for the first time, the oppor tunitv of declaring their ntlil ide to ward the createst crime-producer In the world the liquor saloon It is their urivilege to shut its doors and stop Its evil work or to endorse its and cont'nue it. If anr voter thinks this is not a serious matter It is because he has not given the subje t proper consideration. The citizen who votes to perpetuate the saloon becomes a partner In Its moral , guilt and personally r?sponsl ble for its evil consequences. If John Doe gets drunk on Phoenix whisky and acldentally or intentionally kills some one, you cannot escape your .liare of responsibility for the shed blood. If Prosper Borilonl adds your daughter or some other man's daughter to his public harem, rou cannot find fault for you voted to give the opportunity for just such things to come to pass. If your boy learns to drink in the gild ed palaces of Washington street, you must not whine or shed tears, it ' Is I your own fault. " Hi blood is upon your own head. You knew the danger but to save a dollar you agreed to run the risk. Tou will have to take your medicine and you 'will get no s.unpathy Daniel Webster said that the greatest thought which ever exercised his mind was that of his personal responsibility to Cod. That thought may well de- I mnnd the attention of every voter who contemplates casting a ballot in favor of the institution which is the breed ing place of crime, the nursery of vice, the partner of the brothel, the destroy er of the home and the murderer of the souls of men. THINK BEFORE YOU VOTE. I I Who pays the Bills? The saloonkeepers profess to be the fairy godmother who pays the bills, supplies the luxuries and necessities of life to the community. It is the generous benefactor of the public schools, it is the mainstay of busi ness. !t !e the friend In need to the taxpayer, It is the keystone to the arch of general prosperity! Honest now! Dos the saloon pay out a single dollar that does not come back to its pocket multiplied many limes? Is the saloon a benevolent In stitution? Does It give even a free lunch without expecting the cater to buy more than enough whisky or ci gars to pay for it? Does it ever elve the "glud hand" of welcome and Jo vial fellowship to any man unless it believes there Is available cash In his pockets? Does it contribute to the cause of benevolence? Does It do any thing but "salt" every dollar it can squeeze out of the hard hand of la bor; the soft hand of youth aiid inex perience or the careless hand of the business man? Who pays the bills? We say the people; we pay the bills! Who pays the licenses? We say the people. We pay the licenses! Who pays your taxes? We say the people. We pay your taxes! Who pays for your stock? We say the people. We pay for your stock! Who pays your rent? We say the people. We pay your rent! Who pays your expenses? We say the people. We pay your expenses! Who pays your profits? We say the people. ,We pay your profits! , Who pays the bills? We say the people. We pay the bills! And we are tired of paying the sa loonkeeper's bills for we have bills of our own to pay. Now let us vote the saloon out and let it rustle for its own keep for awhile and pay its own bills. ALL IN FAVOR OF THIS VOTE FOR PROHIBITION. TEMPE'S Account with Mr. Whisky.

A most significant fact, although not attended with any surprise, is to be found In the action of the city au thorities of Atlanta, Ga., in closing the liquor saloons of the city as the first step, in the effort to restore order In the recent race riots. .Why is It al ways necessary to close the saloons whenevfr a riot or a bad strike oc curs? The Citizen. Seattle, Wash. PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT ON SALOONS IN CANAL ZONE. Ther. seemed to me to be too many saloons in tho zone, but the new high 1 ieon.se law, whloh goes Into effect on January 1 next, will probably clo- four-fifths of them. Resolute and suc cessful efforts are being made to mini mize and control the sale of liquor." . This extract from the president'- message on the Panama canal is tha expression of one who is not in any sense a temperance fanatic; it is the conviction of a strong personality. WHISKY THE MOST DEMORALIZING THING. "I have defended forty-one men and women for murder in my life, and nineteen out of twenty of the crimes were caused by whisky. I have de fended lots of other criminal cases in my life, and I am safe in saying that nineteen out of twenty of them wer caused by liquor. Whisky is the most demoralizing thing in the world. Mri do not usually drink it to get into u condition to rob and kill, but ft h "il they get it in them they are ready for nny sort of deviltry that comes to hand." Col. I. W.

One week before tbe celebration of tbe natal day of tbe most popular saint In tbe calendar seems s most appropriate and auspicious time for discussing tbe day we all cared so much for when chil dren, and which we ought to observe even In our maturity. Halot Valentine, born about tbe year -TO. lu tbe reign of tbe ltoman emperor. Mar. na Aurellua Claudius, waa a geutle, charitable bishop, famoua for Ms deeda of kludueas, bla be nigulty and his persuasiveness lu con verting pagans to tbe Christian faith. Lite so many Christian bishops and other churchmen, be became a martyr, being first beaten with clubs sod then be headed. To recompense him for this suf fering sod death, though It seems rsther difficult to figure out Just how this would help his cause. Inasmuch as he bad al ready died and gone to his real reward, be waa canonised. His bones uow rest in tbe Church of 8t. Praxedea. In Rome, Moreover, Pope Julius, tbe first of that name, honored him atill further by erect lug a church to his .memory near the Ponte Molo, in Rome, the saint's fame being further commemorated by bis name being given to the gate now kuown ss the Ports del Popolo. though then des ignated aa Porta Valentine. Just what connection there Is between the saint and the love breathing missives and cut Id covered cards now Inseparably associated with tbe celebration of bis birthday Is difficult lo discover. Some have credited It to the deeire of the church, theu struggling wltb the problem of converting to Christianity all the I at lu world, to make a concession tbat the pagans might see that It was not at all as harsh a religion as the latter gen erally credited It with being. A far more .lausllile explanation of the mat ter lies In Tbe association of the date and Its love-making lucrntive with tbe enrui m.I time tbat was celebrated each year nleint tbe 14th of February. Kvery court lit klurope then had assembled notalil; irr.thcrimr of knights, who on Hint 'ate euti-red luto a sort of 1J mouths allegiance to some ladylove, ihct larter. eveu as tcday. picking out tbe mau she desired to b.i as ber kulght. leap year or sot, though sir knight dosotless pos sessed the same Idea as the mas sf te day. that the choke was his, sot that of tbe lady herself. Be that ss It may. it Is a eortsos to Incidence that the birthday of the moat popular ssist of them sll should be the time when the birds begin their mating. Chaucer expresses this belief ia hU Uses when be makes Nature say: "Te know well how oa St, ValenOne's Day By my statute and through my govars suce - Ye do choose your mates.' Tbe fete day Is observed la many toss tries, but nowhere more thoroughly or reverently than lu England, where each county haa some particular form of pay ing homr.ge to the saint and the Individ ual's ladylove. Allegiance Is sworn to the latte.-, even aa at those kaleidoscopic gatherings of the Uiiidle Ages when knights In armor knelt before the fair lady, and had tied aruuud their arm the colors they were to wear In her honor. Children delight to send to each other tbe tender Urtle heart -decorated missives, snd sometimes to pay scores with ene mies snd deadly foci su unwholesome growth of tbe eitstom. 'Why should sot men also, who are lint children of an older growth, follow out the Idea? There cau be no p:-ettler custom, for example, than sending tj ibe wife or the aweet beart that may liecume the wife flowers on St Valentlce's l):iy. If not flowers, then some other gift surb as delight a omau's heait nlt.l -.takes tbe world lirishtcr for l.er. She will know tbat It Is In honor of Si. Valentine tbat tbe gift Is brouitbt. for wouieu bave peculiar power f remembering a fete day tbat In their chlidhiKMi was doubtless fraught with many tender mruioriea, and you will find tbat yn sre repaid a thousandfold for yonr Ihouliiftiines.
