First Trade Board Meeting
Months on Schedule Many
Important Matters
The first of a series of business
meetings of" the Tempe board of
trade, to be held from time to time
through the fall and winter, will
lake place in the city hall this ev
ening. There are a number of rea
sons why the session is an import
ant one, principally because it is the
first held since last spring, which
naturally means that quite a quan
tity of business matters have piled
up. Then there are a few post
poned matters to be brought up and
best of all will be the sort of ex
planatory address by Fair Commis
sioner Geo. T. Peabody of Chandler,
who with a party of other prominent
valley boosters, will be here to see
what Tempe is doing.
Mr. Peabody is getting out a little
picture booklet, containing a vari
ety of views and descriptive matter
on the valley in. general and on the
separate districts. His talk this ev
ening will be based on -that propo
sition and the one following:
During the month of October the
greatest dry farming congress ever
held will convene in Wichita, Kan
sas. This year displays have been
asked for from irrigated districts, in
an effort to further the conservation
of irrigation "water by the use of j
' dry farming methods. This year the
. middle west, and especially Kansas,

Mn the Salt River valley, with a de
lightful winter and perpetual pros
perity as against their season of
snow and sleet, drought and floods.
"It has been proposed by the differ
ent commercial organizations that in
'connection with the work of the fair
commissioner an exhibit be sent
from the Salt River valley. This
exHbit should be accompanied by
one or two good men, in .order to
derive the sjpost benefit from it. This
can bo done at a very light expense
to the different communities, outside
of the collection and preparation of
an exhibit
President of the board of trade,
Howard Brown, is looking forward
to some good fall work by the or
ganization and by calling tonight's
meeting hopes to get all business
settled up to date. That will leave
a clear field ahead and one that
can be worked to almost an unlimit
ed end. Everybody in Tempe and
vicinity is invited, and in fact is
urged to attend the meeting this ev
ening at the city hall. It starts at
8 o'clock.
Material reductions in the rates on
hay and straw in carload lots have
been brought about by the cancel
lation of certain items of the tariff
of the Santa Fesystem, and by plac
ing this commodity under what are
known as Class C rates. The new
reductions, which mean the abandon
ment of tha arbitrary minimum on
cars forty feet in length went into
effect yesterday.
Under the new arrangement, the
minimum on car lots, which was
formerly 24,000 pounds, is reduced to
20,000 pounds, and the commodity
placed under a classification which
will result in a saving of a large
amount annually to shippers of hay
and straw. Permission to amend the
schedule was given by the corpor
ation commission on application of
W. G Barnwell, assistant freight
traffic manager of the Santa Fe.
Congress to Remain in Session

May Arise in Connection
With Big Struggle
Big Trunk Lines Making

Account of the European
That congress will In all proba
bility not adjourn at all on account
of the European war is the state
ment of C. A. Taylor, assistant su
perintendent of senate documents,
who is visiting friends in this city.
"It is generally conceded now that
congress will continue in session un
til December," said Mr. Taylor yes
terday. "In view of. the possibility
of an emergency arising in connec
tion with the general European war
and the necessity of meeting such an
occasion with legislative action, ad
ministration leaders have practically
decided that no adjournment will be
taken before the short session is
convened in December. Of course a
number of members will leave for
their . homes in order to take part
in primary campaigns, but all who
are not so occupied will remain In
Already the big trunk lines of the
west are starting a campaign to handle
the rich tourist trade that has been
wont to fly to Europe at the first peep

mild climates of the south of France

Then will "come the chance for Ari

ers when they pass through. Perhaps
it is not far fetched to say that the
shrine ceremonial at the Grand Can
yon will be prolific of some results in
bringing tourists to the coast.
The Santa Fe and the Southern Pa
cific are both starting extensive cam
paigns to help the local shrine make the
ceremonial a record breaker and the
indications are that many of the tour
ists who have shrine affiliations in the
family will be only too glad to avail
themselves of the chance to stop en
route west and pay a visit to the great
wonder canyon of the painted desert.
The shrine ceremonial while it was
incidentally designed for the benefit of
the shriner and his family has grown
beyond the order and will be an oc
casion for hundreds in the stake to
visit the great scenic wonder. The

You may not agree with Miss Hunt
and her idea of a pleasant little com
panion, but you must admit that a
snake has its fascination and that the
music of the rattler Is not only wierd
but compelling.
"I have loved snakes ever since I was
a small child", said Miss Hunt yester
day. "When other little girls were
playing with their dolls, I would take
my pets, coil them about me and dance

day night from an auto tour that
has been taken over all of southern

first of August and by way of Flor

a short visit. Douglas and points
in old Mexico were also visited. A
couple weeks later found the party
in the White mountains, somewhat
tired from their trip through the
Gila valley and from Globe to the
mountains. A week was passed in
the mountains, where many valley
vacationists are enjoying the cooler
wtather and bountiful supplies of
fish. The trip of the Alexander par
ty was thoroughly enjoyed from the
first to the last, good roads a great

machine trouble, making such a re
sult easily possible. Last year the
Alexanders made a similar tour
through northern Arizona.

The White House,
Washington, Aug. 6, 1914.
My Dear Mr. Secretary:
I write to suggest that you request
and advise all officers of the service,
whether active or retired, to refrain
from public comment of any kind upon
the military or political situation on
the other side of the water. I would be
obliged if you would let them know
that the request and advice comes from
me. It seems to me highly unwise and
improper that officers of the army and
navy of the United States should make
any public utterances to which an
color of political or military criticism
can be given where other nations are
