ROAD FLOODING CASE '
Failure to Comply with the County's
Impossible Demands, Gets Highly
Respected Gentlemen Into Court.
Through an alleged violation of the
laws against the flooding of the
roail.-s by neglecting to care for waste
irrigation water, W. A. Kuns, fore
man of H. A. Fowler's ranch, is
spending this glorious SsabbatlT under
a weight of accusation. The heavy
hand of the law was laid upon him
y.stenlay morning, and when Mr.
Fo-vliT. who now resides in the city,
lie; rtl of it, he went to Glendale at
once to investigate. Finding Mr.
tin law rather than a violator, he
the law rather tha na violator, he
also put his shoulder under the
weight and is helping his foreman
to bear up under the white man's
burden, as it is imposed in Glendale.
Hoth gentlemen may be considered
technically and for the time being as
either lawbreakers or martyrs, ac
. cording to the prejudices of the im
partial reader. Yesterday the hear
ing begun before Judge Flock of
Glendale was continued until Tues
day by a general desire of all par
ties to the controversy. The com
plainant was Road Overseer Kendrick,
who desired further time to confer
with the supervisors, the judge de
sired an opportunity to si-cure in
formation of the district attorney as
to his powers and duties in the prem
ises, and Mr. Fowler, in accordance
with his views, desired an opportun
ity to obtain counsel, if that shall be
necessary after the court has passed
on the facts.
Thus far there seems to be no
inharmeny in any quarter concern
ing the statement of facts, which
facts are as follows1: The waste
water fiom Mr. Fowler's ranch runs
into a diteli which follows along a
road some 1 Jii feet or more south
of his ranch. For the last ten years
Mr. Fowler has kept this ditch in
order and continues so to do. At the
end of the area in question, the ditch
runs under a culvert on a country-
road. Through neglect, however, the
leaves, twigs and other desert debris
in that vicinity, together with the
sediment in the water, has stopped up
the culvert, and the overseer has not
cleaned it for the reason that the
county has provided him with no
funds. Nevertheless, the water from
Mr. Fowlers ranch, 1-00 feet below
it, has flooded the road, being unable
to find an outlet under the county
bridge. .miw the question arises
whether Mr. Fowler shall cease irri
gating until the county gets money
enough to fix the culvert, for fear
of flooding the road, or whether he
shall proceed with his farming and
the county take the chance on floods
until it gets the bridge fixed.
In addressing tiie court, yesterday,
Mr. Fowler said that as president of
the Water Users" association, he was
most emphatically in favor of a thor
ough enforcement of the law and
that he sought no personal favors.
If it was found that his foreman
had been neglectful or was a violator,
he would plead guilty and pay the
fine and consider it a privilege to
lieli uphold the law, but under the
circumstances, he believed the ehort
coming was on the part of the
county and neither he nor his fore
man should be held amenable, and
that until he could be made to see
things differently, he was disposed
to take the matter to the court of
last resort, if it be necessary.
He forthwith announced that in
that event he would probably desire
to use the complainant and his neigh
bors and all cognizant of the facts
as witnesses for the defense, to prove
that his foreman had always been
diligent in the care of the waste
water whenever he had half a chance
to do anything, and was a good farm
er and irrigator. Altogether, the cause
at court was a friendly one, the neigh
borhood being a peaceful one and
the accused and their persecutors the
best of friends. It appeared that
both sides to the controversy vere
up against the impossi'.'e in their

ANENT THE RANGERS AND THE
To the Editor of The Republican :
Sir I notice in your paper of the
Sth inst., that from democratic head
quarters (or hindquarters comes the
explanation that the abolition of the
rangers and the public examiner is
intended as a means of proving to
the world beyond Maricopa station,
how morally pure we are this trip,
and that our inborn integrity and
law-abiding character render us im
pervious to temptation, and make su
pervision of any kind useless and
therefore needless. I also note how
you are trying to explain the need
of proper policing of a well-governed
municipality, and how supervision is
essential to proper business methods.
I must say that "I view with alarm
and apprehension" the unmistakable
symptoms of myopia (this is the
spectacle-man's slang for short-sight
edness) betrayed by your attempt to
'"prove" by argument that the pro
posed abolitions are wrong, and I
wish to hand you my specs, so that
you may look through them and see
what you can see.
Why, Mr. Editor, do you really be
lieve that those fellows, who are an
xious to have the offices of rangers
and public examiner abolished, are
not aware of the fact that they are
attempting to perpetrate an outrage
upon all the people of Arizona irre
spective of party affiliations? Don't
you know, Mr. Editor, that this piece
of legislation Is being condemned
unanimously by the press of both po
litical parties? Under these circum
stances it seems ridiculous to argue
whether such legislation is or is not
From my standpoint, or rather sit
point, it seems to mo that there must
be an Ethiopian in the wood-pile,
and that this whole matter resolves
itself into the following questions:
Firstly. If the people of Arizona
unanimously protest jigamst such leg
islation as being inimical to their
interests, in whose interest then is
Secondly. If the people of Arizona
stand United in their deman for the
continuation of those offices as an
absolute necessity to public safety
in one case, and as a safe business
method in the administration of pub
lic affairs in the other, wherein lies
the necessity for antagonizing the
will of the people?
Somebody said in Latin (I winder
what he would say in Phoenix!) that
the voice of the people is the voice of
God. Yes: but, excuse me, this is
where I have to get off. So I'll bid
