McLean's Grocery 130 North First Ave, Telephone 1375 The very important issue of state wide prohibition has been raised. A campaign in favor of a constitutional amendment will be shortly instituted. This, like all other important ques tions has two sides, on each of which are found honest and intelligent per sons. The Republican has decided to pro vide for a reasonable discussion of this issue in its pages, allowing to each side at least a half column daily for signed articles, for which there will be no charge. No anonymous article will be published. It is only stipulated that the com munications for and aEainst prohibi tion be just and fair and that in no case shall there be any wild and ex travagant statement that will in any way reflect upon the reputation of Phoenix for good order. It is suggested by The Republican that either side, desiring to avail it self of this offer of space, name a committee through which all matter relating to the issue shall be trans mitted. In such rJase, all communica tions received at this office from other sources will be rejected. We believe that this arrangement is ne cessary to keep the discussion within reasonable lines. No paid advertisements from either side will be accepted. TO ARIZONA DRUGGISTS Amusements "I LION THEATER "THE DEATH OF A GEISHA."

DOWNARD AND DOWNARD WILSON BROS. Mr. J. Homer Smith, the druggist who had an open letter to myself in the Sunday issue of the Republican, pre sents the druggist's side of the argu ment as strongly, pwrhaps, as it can be presented and because of this fact I reply, because, when answering him, I am answering the strongest opponents of the proposed constitutional amend ment making Arizona dry. Mr. Smith classes himself with the "honest, up right business men" of Arizona and as such he ought to assume a higher plane than that revealed in this letter, for an honest, upright business man cannot afford to voluntarily place him self in the unenviable position of an alignment with the Royal Arch, an or ganization of saloon keepers, for a reason so pitifully insufficient. The question raised by the druggists, who think more of a government li cense and the sale of liquor under it than they do of a legitimate drug busi ness, is not a vital one. It does not get nt the merits of the case. It is in spired bjf wrong motives and is des tined to' meet with failure. The conscientious druggist, and there are many such, realize that the issue is not prohibition vs tinctures, but pro hibition vs license of the most vicious kind. If the amendment had been "pro posed to deal with druggists and drug preparations it would have been word ed differently. It was not after drug gists nor drugs, but it was after liquors and it had to go behind the prescrip tion case only because liquors find a refuge there. Had the amendment 'made any ex ception whatever in favor of druggists it would have been class legislation. It would have been unfair discrimination. There is no more reason for permitting a druggist to sen" liquor than there is for permitting a saloon-keeper to sell it. As a matter of fact there is less reason, for the saloon-keeper pays a license to his county and town and the whiskey druggist dodges both. Suppose the amendment had except ed druggists and had permitted them to handle alcohol for tinctures. The very minute the saloons had to close every old toper would haunt the drug store knowing that it had a supply of alcohel on hand. The importunities "of these alcoholics would be hard to resist and many druggists, either through sym pathy or greed, would sell and break the law. As the amendment is now every old toper knows exactly what to expect. He is not going to haunt the drug store because he knows that he cannot beg or buy alcohol where none exists. It saves the strain on the druggist, the DARKEN GRAY HAIR, LOOK YOUNG, PRETTY Sage Tea and Sulphur Darkens So Naturally That Nobody Can Tell Almost everyone knows that Sage Tea and Sulphur, properly com pounded, brings back the natural color and lustre to the hair when faded, streaked or gray; also ends Dandruff, itching scalp and stops falling hair. Years ago the only way to get this mixture was to make it at home, which is mussy and troublesome. Nowadays, by ask ing at any drug store for "Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Hair Remedy," you will get a large bottle of this famous old recipe for about 50 cents. Don't stay gray! Try It! No one can possibly tell that you darkened your hair, as it does so naturally and evenly. You dampen a sponge or soft brush with it and draw this through your hair, taking one small strand at a time; by morning the gray hair disappears, and after an other application or two, your hair becomes beautifully dark, thick and glossy. undesirable importunities, the constant menace of the presence of danger. The druggist who opposes the amendment on the ground that he can not make his own tinctures is assum ing a false position and one that is logically and morally untenable. He says in effect, "I do not care if the hu man race is going to hell by the alco hol route. I do not care for the human wrecks it makes, the crimes it inspires, the disease and degeneracy it causes. In my moral scales there are all out weighed by my privilege to make my own tinctures." Far better is the position of the real druggist who is not only willing but glad to make a minor sacrifice for the vastly greater good of society. Com pared with the common good subserved by the abolition of the liquor business the making of tinctures by the local druggist is an insignificant detail un worthy of a passing thought. In the. face of the moral responsibili ties involved in the question, the drug gist who aligns himself with the Royal Arch and other liquor advocates de bases his calling and avoids the white apron and the rear of the saloon bar only because he lacks the moral cour age of the average bartender. Such druggists will bear their proper label and will be avoided by the decent peo ple of their communities when the amendment carries in November. In'the meantime the real druggists are not going to permit the Royal Arch to whip them into line by and a pitiful plea. They know exactly how they can get their tinctures. They know that if they do not accept the inevitable and vote for this amendment they will have to accept a more drastic one in the near future. The West Virginia law is for more stringent and it was adopted by the largest majority ever given to a prohibitory law simply became it was stringent. The people are growing weary of loop-holes and jokers, .in the laws. They will not stand for pretense and make-believe. They are in earn est and the whisky druggist may as well adapt himself to the situation when it merely requires him to buy his tinctures instead of making them. O. F.

The photo graphy is excellent. "SEE IT! If Mr. Walter Montague is not very, ver ycareful, he is liable to become as prolific in his writings as Mr. Montague Glass, although there is no danger that he will ever become so entertaining. He was at it again last night with a new one. "The War den and the Cqnvict." It served to impress several facts upon us: We take it that he is quite a reader of' modern fiction, has seen both "Alias Jimmy Valentine" and "Within the Law," appreciates their good points and has a retentive memory. 'We just new that "The New Chief of Police" would get into trouble; he never should have been so brash In his conversation with that "prorninent clubwoman." Now he has been de moted to warden of the penitentiary in the backyard of that beautiful po lice headquarters where he held forth before. That is what one gets for being frank. He seems a little older and not quite so care-free and cock sure; but he still has that sumptuous headquartets suite to ward in. Our old friend, the sailor, was up against it, too. They must have given him an awful sentence for ac costing that breezy damsel in the green stockings; and it does not seem to have done him a bit of good. Dur ing his incarceration he had acquired a prison pallor that stuck on, in spots, in spite of the high tempera ture, and they brought him in in a straight jacket. Perhaps they thought he might be shanghaied to help fill up the crew of a Russian man-of-war; but anyway, his man ners are unimproved, for the moment he was left alone with the same young lady she has forsaken society and become a "Hick," the first thing he did was to ask her if she was 'straight." : His morals must have improved, for on hearing her say that she was. he breathed a fervent "Thank God!" Yes, the clubwoman is there, too. in jail; only, unfortunately, they freed her Just as the curtain went up. However, as she did not appear again, the audience did not suffer on that account, You don't want to miss "The War den and the Convict;" it will surprise you. The surprise may not be the kind you expect, but you will enjoy it none the- less, and it is worth a trip to the Columbia just to know that our friend the clubwoman finally got hers. MAITLAND DAVIES. After weeks of milling around, the republican leaders of the state, or a few of them, have decided that the party shall have a state ticket in the coming campaign. Accordingly, they have resolved to circulate petitions for the following: United States Senator Lorenzo Hubbell, Apache county. ' Congress, T. L. Eads, Phoenix. Governor Ralph H. Cameron, Phoenix. Secretary of State C. G. Cole, Greenlee county. Auditor R. C. Smith, Navajo coun ty. Treasurer E. M. Dickerman, Tucson. Mine Inspector Dave Morgan, Yav apai county; John Evans, Patagonia; Robert Mitchell, Nogales. Corporation Commissioners M. W. Richardson, Pinal county; J. C. Reed, Phoenix; Mike Cassidy, Bisbee; H. Vance Clymer, Yuma. Tax Commissioners Thomas E. Campbell, Prescott: R. E. Merritt, Globe; Roy N. Davidson, Phoenix. Supreme Court Thomas Armstrong, Phoenix: L. L. Henry, Globe; Edward J. Flanigan, Bisbee; Walter Bennett, Phoenix. School Superintendent Miss Kate Christy, Phoenix. Mr. Hubbell had taken time by the forelock and had already filed his petition. Of the other candidates in the list, some of them were drafted for service without consultation. They were called to the colors after the manner of reservists. It will be ob served that the republican conference instituted a contest for a place on the supreme bench by placing four candidates in the field for nomina tion when there are only three places. The conference was held on Tues day afternoon, with several of the counties represented. It was hardly until the last moment that it was re solved to put a full ticket in the field. There was a lingering hope that a fusion ticket with the pro gressives might be effected, but such members of the party as were seen by agents of the conference declined to nurture that hope. 0 Bradshaw butter at McKEES CASH STORE. Advertsement. n German Consulate Undertakes to Or der Out Phoenix Man, Who Is Backed Up by U. S. Attorney It is the private opinion of Assist ant United States Attorney W. E. Jones, publicly expressed to the im l perial German consulate at Denver, jlhat the kaiser doesn't have any right to boss a Teuton who has made nis first declaration to become an Ameri can citizen. As soon as Hon. Wiley Jones can grub out a lot of law para graphs, he will back up his opinion in a strictly legal way, and thereby set Arizona right concerning the. sub ject of calling out former reservists to serve in the European wars. The case came up over the orders received by a local resident, a Ger man, whose papers of naturalization had been applied for two or three months ago. Mr. Jones refused to give the man's name. He applied to the attorney for in formation, saying he had been or dered by the Denver consulate to re port in New York to sail for Ger many on a certain date. "The opinion, while not a formal one," said Jones, "outlines our atti tude on this question, and is more eigners in Arizona who have applied DEMOCRAT CANDIDATES WILL DIVIDE EXPENSES Making Arrangements for Series of . Meetings and Speakings A meeting of the democratic candi dates was held at the courthouse at 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon for the purpose of arranging a plan for meet ings pending the primary election. A committee of three, consisting of M. B. Brooks, J. B. Roach and May nard A. Frazier, was appointed to arrange dates and places of meetings, the publication of notices, etc., and to invite all democratic candidates to be present and participate in the pro ceedings and share equally in the. expenses. It was the sense of the meeting that the expensts be kept at a mini mum, but that very little expense would be necessary. It means that the thousands of for eigners in Arizona who ahve applied for citizenship papeis in good faith, are to be protected against the mili tary grabibness of their former sov ereign." Jones called attention to the fact that the house of represetnatives liad been considering a bill to prevent aliens, who depart to serve in the war .from returning anil becoming American citizens. IS SOURCE OF ODD SPECULATION Peculiar Document Found in Glendale Car Causes Business Men to Brush Up Their Wits CARRY THEM OUT. Welchs Grape Juice, qts. .40, pts. .25, BEST ON EARTH. McKEE'S A copy of an old Mexican "Orac ulo," one of those old fortune telling sheets used by the fakirs to defraud the poor and ignorant, turned up in a Glendale car, and brought forth some peculiar speculation among the heads of the electric and railway companies. The cause of all the ex citement is a sheet of heavy paper printed with strange signs, and with some "preguntas," questions in Span ish, inscribed along the left margin. Opposite each pregunta is a row of these strange figures, the familiar signs of the zodiac, and some that never saw an astronomical chart. Manager S. H. Mitchell sent the document to W. S. Goldsworthy, with the suggestion that it was a copy of the new time table for the ' Santa Fe's Phoenix-Glendale run or a new Phoenix-Glendale auto bus line. Mr. Goldsworthy referred the mat ter to Harry Welch, who suggests that it . may be a "pronunciamento" belonging to a prehistoric age. "After perusing the document, my surprise was turned to horror," says Mr. Goldsworthy. "I thought it might be the death warrant of some noted European ruler." Welch believes it is a document meaning the continuance of England's supremacy on the seas. Joe Alexan der asserts that it is a sure in1 dication. that the progressives will be preferred at the polls this autumn. while Reese Ling maintains it signi fies a democratic victory. The owner . of the "oraculo" may have it by calling on Mr. Goldswor thy and telling him what the Sam OUR SERVICE MEANS Quality-Accuracy-Promptness DR. .
