Buckeye t State Fair
G. T. Pea body, fair commissioner

In speaking of the fair, Mv. Peabody
said the exhibit this ' year is to be
essentially a county display. No local
tooths will ,be allowed in the main
display, ami All exhibits will be made
so as to produce the best results for
Maricopa county as a whole. I am
glad tor find that Buckeye has the
lair spirit. Mr. Field of liberty is
preparing to plant a fair garden and
expects to show just what can be
done in the way of small garden

for any and all products which may
be collected for the fair.

The following local democrats

The Buckeye Canal- company has
called a special meeting for Septem
ber 5 to consider some important
changes in their by-laws. At the
present time the annual assessment
made by the water company at $1.50
per acre for all the water that might
be used by any stockholder. This
amount, however, has not only paid
the maintenance expense, but has
also provided for all the necessary
improvements which have been made
during this time. Under the new
riding the annual assessment will
probably not exceed $1.00 per acre.

Total state tax levy $0.44500
The net raise made by the board
over the total valuation returned by
the counties amounted to less than
three millions, as compared with an
increase of over six millions made
by the board last year. Material
raises were made on property in the
larger cities of the state, where the
Somers system of veal estate valua
tion hag been adopted, but few com
plaints were filed.
The largest increase was made in
the valuation of railroads, cattle,
sheep and, . banks. Railroad assess
ments were raised over six millions,
range cattle to $24 per head, and
sheep to $3.50 per head. Bank valua
tions were raised, largely on account
of a readjustment of the valuation
on the basis of the market valuation
of the shares.
The valuations submitted by the
county assessors of Greenlee and
Mohave counties were lowered by the
board of equalization, the decrease in
Greenlee being $304,930 and In Mo
have $148,894.46. In all the other
counties Increases were made, the
greatest raise being in Gila county,
where the raise was $1,231,756.24. In

by J212.4S1.44.
That the board considers the im-
portance of economy and the avoid
ance of all unnecessary expense in
connection with the county govern
ments is shown by the following let
ter which was sent out vesfenlav tr
the boards of supervisors of the sev
eral counties of the state. A copy
was also sent to the countv superin
tendents of schools.
Aucust 11. 1914.
To the Honorable Board of Super
Gentlemen: The attention of this
commission has ben directed to the
tentative budgets contuininc the
Itemized expenditures of monies to
be raised by direct taxation in some
of the counties in this state, setting
forth alleged excessive levies as con
templated by law, and requesting
tha.t action be taken to prevent same.
Assurance was eiven to nil such
complaining taxpayers that the com
mission would use its best efforts
trior to the making of the levies to
keep same as low as possible and
consistent with eroort Government and
after they had been made, should any
not be confined to the limits of the
tax law, would take such steps as
might be necessary to have the
spirit of the law carried out.
In this connection, it might be
rioted that owing to the war now
going on in foreign countries, de
pressive conditions have temporarily
taken place in certain portions of the
state. While we feel that these con
ditions will not be in any degree per
manent, yet it is the belief of the
commission that they are worthy of
careful consideration to the end that
you curtail any unnecessary expense
apparent, whether it be In connection
with the county government direct
or the expenditures for schools over
which you have only limited control.
We believe that conditions warrant
the co-operation with your board of
the superintendent of schools of your
county, and to this end we are tak
ing the liberty of sending him a copy
of this communication and requesting
that he meet with you on the 17tll
ir.st., when your final levy is decided
upon. Very truly yours,
Jesse I-. Uoyce, Secretary.
Inasmuch as the necessity of com-
pleting the task of computing the
state tax levy compelled the state
board of equalization to work all day
Monday and well into the night, it
was impossible for the board to com
ply with the governor's request that
the office be closed during the aft
ernoon as a mark of respect to Mrs.
Woodn w Wilson. The board, how
ever, adopted the following resolu
tion, a copy of which has been for
warded to the president:
Whereas, The stat board of equal
ization, now in session, finds 'it im
possible to close its office and ad
journ this afternoon out of respect
for the memory of the president's
wife, Mrs. Woodrow Wilson, whose
funeral is being held today:
Therefore, Be it resolved, that this
beard express its heartfelt grief for
the country's loss, its deepest sym
pathy for the president in his hour
of great sorrow, and its hope that
the great God of humanity will give
the president strength to survive his
terrible affliction, and that he may
be preserved to this nation at this
critical period.
And be it further resolved, That n

A study of the navies of the warring nations in Europe indicates that
while Germany is powerful on the sea, she and Austria have nothing
like the combined sea strength of England, Russia and France. Germany
has not a single superdreadnought built and has crhly three building. Eng
land has thirteen superdreadnoughts in commission and seventeen build
ing. Germany has seventeen dreadnoughts; Austria two; France two;
Great Britain sixteen. Germany has thirty other battleships; Austria
fourteen; Russia thirteen; France twenty-seven; Great Britain forty-eight
England and her allies have 62 armored cruisers; Germany and Austria 12.
Germany has twenty-seven submarines; Austria eight; Russia thirty-one;
France seventy-three; England seventy-seven.
The German dreadnoughts seen in battle formation above are of the
Deutchland type, Grmany's crack $0,000,000 fighting machine. The dread
noughts which belong to this class are the Deutchland, Schleswig-Holstein,
Pommern, Schlesien and Braunschweig. The first five are of 13,400 ton
displacement and the last named is of nJ,997 ton displacement.
