III THIS LAUD
Roy S. Goodrich, After His
Two Months in East,
Speaks of the Present and
Probable Future Business
Situation in Countrv.
Roy S. Goodrich returned to the city
after an absence of two months. Mr.
Goodrich spent the greater part of that
time in New England, in Boston and
about his old alma mater. Harvard
University. Speaking of business
conditions, Mr. Goodrich said that pre
vious to the breaking out of the Euro
pean war there had been a decided im
provement in business and the pros
pect was one of great activity. It was
not only in prospect; it had already
actually begun. Then came the sudden
war for the moment bringing business
to a stand still. The country, however,
withstood the first shock but it was
realized that the business of the
country was facing entirely new con
ditions to which it must- adjust itself
and it was further realized that those
conditions would remain after the
causes which had given birth to them
had passed away.
Though money was now higher it
was available for necessary enterprises
bin there was none for speculation and,
in the opinion of Mr. Goodrich, it will
be a long time before speculation will
receive encouragement. The work be
fore the country now is constructive
and not speculative.
The general attitude of hankers
is one of patriotism, Mr. Good
rich learned from an old friend, Mr.
Wallace Dunham, president of the Old
Colony Trust company, of Boston. Mr.
Dunham said that by reason of the
European war many enterprises which
had formerly been carried on almost
exclusively in Europe, would have to
be undertaken in this country. For
instance, certain classes of woolen
goods for which the t'nited States had
depended upon Europe, would now be
manufactured at home and therefore
encouragement would be given by the
bankers to such enterprises.
Most of the dyes hitherto used in
this country were manufactured in
Germany under patents which are pro
tected in this country. It is probable
that an arrangement will he made by
which the dyes can be made here. It
is stated that there is not now more
than a month's supply of dyes in the
In many other directions the burdens
which Europe has hitherto borne will
have to be taken up in this country and
every facility will he afforded by capi
talists for the starting of new enter
prises which give promise of success.
Hut for speculative or precarious enter
prises nothing will lie forthcoming.
In the opinion of financiers there
will be no serious disturbance in this
country. Of course, such a great de
struction of wealth as is going on 1n
Europe must be felt in all parts of the
world but it will not be felt here with
painful acuteness. At the end of it,
the new era which has been forced
upon til is country, will leave it in bet
ter condition than that in which the
war found it.

Question: What is to be said of
rnyone who attempts to stir up re
Answer: He ought, at least, to be
suppressed as an enemy to religion
Q. How about the man who enlists
religious prejudice against a great
A. That might be called adding in
sult to injury.
Q. Who is attempting to stir up
.-f-ligious prejudice and resentment?
A. The Royal Arch, an organiza
tion of saloon keepers.
Q. How are they trying to do
A. Ry sending out letters to Cath
olics calculated to inflame them
against the proposed constitutional j
amendment making Arizona dry.
Q. Why is the Royal Arch doing
A. Because it is attempting to
save the saloon and make the Cath
olic church the instrument by which
the saloon shall be saved.
Q. What excuse does the Royal
Arch offer for this reprehensible at
tempt to make the Catholic church
A. A so-called legal opinion to
the effect that if the amendment
carried the Catholic church could not
use fermented wine for Holy Com
munion. Q. Is a legal opinion conclusive
evidence on this point?
A. No, a legal opinion is only
valuable when it forecasts a court
decision. An opinion not likely to
be sustained in court is not worth
the paper on which it is written.
Q. Did the Royal Arch get moro
than one opinion?
A. Yes, they secured several opin
ions, and then used only the ones
that favored their side.
Q. Is it possible to get legal opin
ions that directly conflict with each
A. Yes, indeed, you can get any
kind of an opinion you are willing to
Q. Why were some of the opin
ions secured by the Royal Arch to
the effect that the amendment would
make it a crime to nse fermented
wine fo'. communion?
A. Because the lawyers giving the
opinion knew what was expected of
them or were ignorant of the fact
that statutes were construed accord
ing to the intent of the people who
Q. Who asked for the opinion of
the attorney who decided that com
munion wine was barred?
A. Amos O'Keefe, of Tucson.
Q. Who is Amos O'Keefe'.'
A. He is proprietor of the El Moro
saloon at Tucson and president of
the Royal Arch, an organization of
the saloon-keepers of Arizona.
Q. Who gave Amos O'Keefe the
authority to look after the spiritual
welfare of the Catholic church?
A: His fellow saloon-keepers.
Q. Why should Amos O'Keefe take
such an interest in the Holy Eucha
rist or Holy Communion?
A. Ho is interested only in saving
the saloon business and he will em
ploy any means to accomplish that
Q. How did Amos O'Keefe circu
late the. opinion of the lawyer after
he got it?
A. He enlisted the service of John
I. Rellly, of Tucson, who sent it out
Q. Who is John I. Rellly.
A. He is district deputy of the
Knights of Columbus.
Q. Why was Reilly selected to
serve the purpose of the Royal Arch?
A. Because of his connection with
tho Catholic organization that
O'Keefe wanted to rake his chestnuts
out of the fire.
Q. What does John I. Reilly say in
his letter to excuse him for an at
tempt to form a partnership between
the church and the saloon?
A. lie says that the efforts of the
thousands of good people of Arizona
to abolish the saloon is "an attempt
to stab the Mother Church in the
Q. When did the destruction of the
liquor business become synonimous
with "stabbing the Mother Church in
A. When Amos O'Keefe saw John
Q. Will not Catholics resent this
implication of Reilly's that the Cath
olic church and the saloon stand so
closely together that the voting out
of the one means the stabbing of the
A. They certainly will.
Q. But is this opinion of the Roy
al Arch attorney correct?
A. No. it is absolutely and utterly
Q. Is there any legal opinion on
which the voters can rely?
A. Yes, indeed. Judge A. C. Bak
er, former justice of the supreme
court of Arizona and a leading law
yer of Phoenix, has given an opinion
of real value.
Q. Why is Judge Baker's opinion
of more value than that of the. sa
A. Because it is the result of thor
ough research, is based on a decision
of the United States supreme court,
appeals to your own reasoning fac
ulties pnd common sense and is to
tally disinterested. It is neither
bought nor paid for and is given only
because a sense of fairness demand
ed that the misrepresentation of the
amendment should end.
Q. What is' the effect of Judge
A. That the amendment does not
interfere with the use of communion
wine, fermented or unfermented; that
no court in Christemdom would so
Q. Which is most to he relied up
on, the cool, chaste and convincing
language of Judge Baker or the hot,
intemperate language of John I.
A. That must be decided by the
Q. Why does not Amos O'Keefe
rake his own chestnuts out of the
A. Because he does not wish to
burn his fingers.
Q. Will the Catholic church permit
itself to be caught in the saloon net
of the Royal Arch?
A. Xo, indeed, it has a higher pur
pose, than to become a side-partner
of the liquor business or political at
tachment of the Royal Arch.
