Prices From $1.25 to $5 $ The Popular For a good many years there have been numerous attempts to in Home way formulate a plan for the success ful irrigation of what is known us the Queen Creek wash and trirjutay lands south and east of Mesa, but not until last Saturday, when the Queen Valley Development company was organized in the town hall, di'i it seem that the dreams of the home steaders had begun to be realized. No less than twenty-five inter ested men met Saturday for the pur pose of organizing - a company and adopting articles of incorporation In ik ing toward the further settlements of the lands around Higley and in the Queen Creek section, better described as 1 south and 6 E. I'p ta noon Saturdav sixty-six entries had been made in T. I. S. R, 6 E. In the beginning it might be well to state that a considerable amount of the credit and the bringing of the nun together in an organization be longs to J. Beal who several months ago took up a homestead in the vicin ity of Higley, and who has since spent in the neighborhood of two tlfmsand dollars in sinking wells and making reservoirs and other improve ments. The meeting Saturday was called to order and J. f. Hetrperly was made chairman and J. JSeai secretary, temporary officers. M. J. Dougherty, of the law firm of I'omrroy & Dough erty, was present and assisted In drafting the articles of incorporation which will be signed and acknowl edged this afternoon by the incor porators and filed immediately, so that the company may proceed to business. The stock has a par value of tlOO and every quarter section of land within the district to be bound ed later is entitled to one share. The money is payable in installments at the office of the secretary. t'ZO be ing due on June 1st. The stock sub scriptions which are notes bearing no interest and payable to the Queen Valley Development company were submitted for signatures and nine of the one hundred shares were im mediately subscribed. I'non the adoption of the articles of Incorporation whirh have no dis tinctive features other than any or ganization for the purpose of de veloping water rights, a permanent organization was effected as follows: President. V. E. Fuller; vice presi dent, Joseph A. Stewart; secretary and treasurer, J. V. Hempcrly; man ager, J. Heal: agent. Joseph Hastings. The board of directors selected are P. E. Fuller. J. F. H-mperly. J. Beal, Joseph Stewart, V. A. Glaze and Dudley S. Lewis. A committee to draft by-laws was selected, composed of A. L. Haw'ey, O. Merrill, J. Beal and P. E. Fuller. A very interesting feature of the meeting wi:s a reading of a letter submitted bv the Western American (Jas company, of I'll they corroborated the" opinion by a number of the homesteaders to the effect that water can be pumped at H0 cents per acre foot on a "5 foot lift. The letter in part is as follows: "I read a very interesting article in the morning Republican of May 2'ith in refard to proposed pumping business south and east of Mesa City, and I: note your figures for the cost of lifting water in that vicinity which I have carefully checked and find to be approximately correct. In connection with this matter, I beg to advise that myself and associates have invented within the last three years a crude oil gas producer on which 'we have obtained some very interesting results. A plant has been in operation at the Pan-American Ostrich farm now for something over two years, being used for various purposes at their ranch. About a vear ago we undertook to furnish the U. S. F. S. with a 100 h. p. equipment at Yuma for pumping water out of the Colorado river, which has now been operating since the first of last September and has given excel lent satisfaction and marvelous re sults for an economical standpoint. We are getting continuously at this plant at Yuma, according to th" government report, approximately b. p. h, per gallon of crude oil. I not tice your figures show about 1 b. h. p. per gallon of distil late, so you can very readily see the great . saving by using crude oil manufactued into gas and used in an inter-combustion engine, as the ratio F. O .B. cars Ma, between crude oil and dsitillate is about 5 to 1.- I have a report before me from the rcclamtion office of Yuma, which shows the fuel cost per acre foot, one foot as high as .012 cents, which would show on a seventh-five foot KIT n "cost of W cents per acre foot for fuel only. Baccalaureate Delivered by Rev. Hawley at High School CONQUERING THE WORLD The First of a Series of Func tions of the Week in Honor of the Closing of the Initial Year of the Union High School. tiuenix, wnerein ' oninion held Rev. A. L. Hawley. of the M. E. church, delivered one of the strong est addresses heard in the city re- cently in his baccalaureute sermon j before a large audience at the I nlon High school auditorium last night. Taking as his theme 'Conquering the World," Rev Hawley said: "A story of old relates how the Hebrew people were given the land of Canaan provided they could con quer it. It was not a free gift, ready made to their hand. Hard years of preparation were followed by strenuous ones of conquest. The land was given them, but they must sub due it. Only they who are able to subdue can hold dominion. The Hit- tites, Jebusites and Perizites must be driven out In order that they might possess the land. "This story is an epitome of every individual life. The world is ours if we are able to subdue it. It is not-j a home ready made for our occupancy its elements are all antagonistic. Heat, cold, storms, desert, rocks, for ests, mountains these are the Hit tites, Jebusites and Perizites we must subdue to our ends and uses before the world becomes ours. "Hence we must live in a per petual conflict; and what broadens and deepens a man like being con stantly required to be and do his best? The power to subdue is what makes men men. To be subdued is to be come a slave. "This conflict between man and his world has two results, both conducing to his success and comfort. First let us notice the result of this conflict on the world. Man is steadily sub duing it. Wild beasts are driven out: forests cleared away, stones removed, deserts are re-claimed, and groat cities, railways and institutions built on, and out of the things he had first to conquer. He has triumphed over th barren expanses of 'heated, arid soil by artificial waterways and has made the desert to b'ossom as the rose. "Cold and storm are overcome with manufactured heat, shelter and cloth ing. "The mountain chain lifted its mighty barrier, challenging his ad vance. From its sides he takes the timber: and from its bowels the iron and stone necessary to con struct his railway; and lo! the con quered mountain becomes a minis ter to his comfort. Even the ocean, old and gray, has bowed before his conquering hand and yields rich rev enue for his pleasure and comfort. He has chained the lightning, com pelling, it to carry his thoughts and voice around the world with the speed of light. He has chained it to his chariot wheels, making it bear his burdens, his willing slave. All the time the world has been made to furnish the means by which he conquered. Always bear this in mind knowledge alone can conquer. Man has pitted his little stock of wisdom aganst the world's opposing forces and was enabled to use the world instead of being used by it. Ignorance or brute force has never accomplished anything. Knowledge alone is power. The ratio of your success will ever be in exact pro portion to your knowledge of the thing in hand. Knowledge discovered the laws of the universe and drew the lightning from the clouds. Knowl edge dug from the earth heroes and fashioned them into all the englnry of civilization. Knowledge you must have or the perfected motor or com pleted ship lies useless before you. What good to have telegraphs and railways, motors and presses if you know not how to use them What use to put a gun in the hands of a man beset by a ferocious beast if he knows not how to use it? Why is the gun useless in his hands? "So all through life our conquests are limited to the rea m of the things we know. Not only is knowl edge power, but it is comfort, too. We fear the things we do not under stand ghosts and genies are the pro ducts of ignorance. And mysteries! how they disquiet us! Knowledge tears from mystery its sable cloak and robs H of its terrors. "Secondly, let us note the result of this world-conflict on a man. It has made him man indeed a creator of circumstances, not a creature of them. The ability to conquer the world marks his slow progress from child to manhood. Some attain more of manhood in twenty years than others ever do. Not years, but the ability to overcome makes the 'man. We measure a' man. and rightly, by what he has done. The statesman, soldier, lawyer, doctor or farmer is measured by his achievements his ability to overcome the things that oppose him.

PLANS FOR FEEDING THE FOURTH OF JULY CROWDS BUILDING TO BE ERECTED THE DAWLEY LOT. ON Six Organizations Will Bid For Po sition.. . Offer For Exclusive Rights. It is believed that one of the greatest obstacles usually encountered at a gathering of people of the mag nitude expected at this place on the Fourth of July lias been v rcor.ie. The problem of feeding the five or six thousand people who will be in Mesa on that date has been a real one to solve, but it is generally be lieved th.it this has been accotnp'ish ed. A booth 4.".Hr feet is proposed to be erected on the Mrs. Dawley lot at the corner of Main and Macdonald, extending from a point mar Mrs. Dawleys residence to the chamber of commerce rooms. No better location could be secured for this purpose. After the building is erected the next plan will be to divide it into booths and sell these positions to the different organizations at a nominal price, the better positions comini? $60,000.00 r THE CAPITAL AND SURPLUS of I-THE MESA CITY BANK We solicit your patronage THE ROOSEVELT STAGE CO. w!ll tmke you through to Roosevelt from Mew In ten hours.

However, it can be readily seen that a building placed ut this corner could not well be out of the way or a poor location. Another meeting has been called for Wednesday evening, at which time tiie final arrangements will be made in the matter. The ladies have not fully decided whether they can get together on the proposition or not. A party has made an offer of Jimi to the central committee for- the ex clusive right to the eating booths on the day of the celebration, but it is tin- idea of the committee that the different organizations should be priv ileged to do this work. There are six organizations figuring on the booth proposition, which with the regular restaurants and hotels will in all probability be able to take care of the multitudes in a systematic manner.
