As the day draws near for the pil

cf the Grand Canyon the interest in
this great gathering is on the increase.
The idea is so novel and at once so
filled with possibilities that the com

in securing many stunts to enliven the
occasion, are daily adding to the chance
to create fun for the assembled hosts of
lodgemen and visitors to the ceremon

its way to the bottom of the wonder

course to be the piece de resistence of
the offering, but second only to it will
be the Hopi Indian snake dance which

Phoenix, Ariz., Aug. 31, 1914.
To the Editor of the Arizona Repub
lican. Dear Sir: Last Sunday week at
Riverside park, a woman falsely pre
tending to be my sister introduced
herself to a lady who lives near
Phoenix, whose name can be fur
nished upon request, and thereupon
proceeded to tell her some things
detrimental to my candidacy for
judge of the superior court and for
the time being succeeded in turning
her against me in my race. Upon
hearing of this incident, I promptly
repudiated all relationship to this
woman, as my only sister lives in
Dallas, Texas, and was never in
Arizona in her life. I do not know
what motive influenced her to do
this, or at whose instance she did
sc, but such campaign methods are
reprehensible in the extreme. I have
never seen this woman In my life,
lhf. I know of. and have no knowl
edge of whom she' is.
Mr. Clark, one of my opponents, in
a speech at Tempe, saw fit to criti
cise my wife and myself, because mv
wife is now in Texas and I am 'n
Arizona. At ' the time he did this
he knew that my wife was an in
valid and spending the summer with
her people in Texas on account of J
her health. I had told him this my-
self, but a short time before the
speech was made.
The fact is, my wife has been an
invalid for years had a surgical op
eration at Rochester, Minnesota, a
few years since, and she must have
another as soon as I can get through
this campaign and go to be with her.
She will return to Phoenix and to
my home on the Glendale car line
as soon as she Is able to travel. I
regret to refer to such matters in h
campaign and do so only in self
defense. Will the voters of this county ap
prove such campaign methods as are
being used against me? I shall
await the result of the primary with

The Barnum & Bailey "Greatest
Show on Earth" is to appear in this
city for two performances on Septem
From now on until the eventful date
the hope that springs eternal in Amer
ica's youth will keep the fathers and
mothers of this fair city on the tiptoe
of expectancy as their dutiful off
springs have gotten them to promise
to take them to the circus. Lives there
a boy with a soul so dead that the
typical American circus does not strike
a responsive chord? It's a matter of
extreme doubt. For the first to greet
the first car of the incoming circus and
the last to see the huge wagons depart
with their heavy loads is the boy whose
love for circis features, novelties and
surprises dates from the time that he
plays with the stuffed animal hides or
miniature duplicates of the animal
kingdom he receives at each recurring
Barnum & Bailey's date here means
a red letter day for the old as well as
the young and they, too, welcome the
excuse to accompany the children to
the show grounds, as they find just as
much fun and amusement as the kid
dies who make sure that everything is
seen in the big rrenagerie tent before
they settle down in their seats for the
circus performance proper.
To typify interest this year and to
knock sky-high the belief that there's
nothing new under the sun. the Bar
num & Bailey show is offering a won
derfully new and realistic spectacle
entitled. "The Wizard Prince of Ara
bia," which teems with life, action and
color and has 1,250 persons taking
part. It's an ingenious exhibition of
kaleidoscopic splendor with startling
climaxes and thrilling developments so
arranged as to make the feature long
remembered by r.H who see it.

of the biggest shows ever produced

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 against 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 o
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 case, 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
No paid advertisements from either
side will be accepted.
The following letter was sent to
all the vice presidents of the Arizona
Local Self Government League.
A copy of the circular lettev which
is being mailed to the voters of Ari
zona on the official letter-head of
the so-called Arizona Local SelL
Government League is before me.
Your name appears as one of the
vice presidents, and you have placed
yourself against the prohibition of
the legalized liquor traffic in Arizona,
and declare yourself to be in favor
of the perpetuation of this financial,
social and moral curse of our state.
Your attitude of course, is perfect
ly satisfactory to every brewer, saloon-keeper,
boot-legger, thug, and
turn in our state and to every other
man and woman who prefer drunk
enness to decency.
But since you have taken this po
sition on the side of the saloon and
Us long list of infamies, of course
you ave ready to defend that position.
Now, lis a citizen and taxpayer of
Arizona I deny the statement you
make pertaining to the benefits aris
ing from the legalized liquor traffic
and furthermore I dney the state
ments that everywhere prohibition
has proved an economic, financial or
Inasmuch as arrangements ave be

ing to be held on the court house
plaza. Phoenix, next Sunday after
noon, September 6, at 4 o'clock p.
m., at which I am to discuss the
economic, social and moral destruc
tion caused by the liquor traffic, and
because I do not desire anything but
the fullest and freest discussion on
this question, I hereby challenge you
to be present at the meeting next
Sunday at the above mentioned place,
to defend your position as set forth
in this circular lettev, and in the
resolutions adopted at your meeting
in Tucson, and in your statement as
made in the pamphlet enclosed with
this circular letter. You may take,
all the time you rfesire in stating
your defense, if the legalized liquor
traffic is a good thing and you can
prove this, it surely is your duty as a
citizen of this state to do so. And
in the name of the friends of the
prohibition amendment I assure you
of a most respectful heaving. I trust
also that all your friends and all tlT
friends of the saloon will come and
give respectful attention to my de
fense of prohibition.
I am writing to you, not as an out
sider, but as a resident and taxpayer
and voter of the state of Arizona. A
letter of acceptance of this challenge
will reach me addressed Box 498,

The farmers affected by the Reclamation Act are asked to support the candidacy
of Senator Smith by reason of his having secured the passage of the bill to extend
the term for payment of the cost of construction of irrigation works.
Attention is directed to the report of Hon. J. M. Graham, Hon. W. L. Hensley,
Hon. Oscar Callaway, the Congressional Committee, assisted by M. C. Burch, Attor
ney of the Interior Department, and Edward C. O'Brien, Special Assistant to the At
The investigation was held at Phoenix in April and May, 1912.
On page 6 of the report appears: "THE act limits the amount of money which
THE government can collect from the land OWNERS AND THE ENTRYMEN TO
THE ESTIMATED COST OF construction and REQUIRES THAT THIS ESTI
MATED COST SHALL BE APPORTIONED EQUITABLY.''
On page 11 of the report: "THE SECRETARY (of the Interior) REPORTED
TO CONGRESS THAT THE ESTIMATED COST OF THE SALT RIVER PRO
JECT WAS $3,850,000.00."
This AMOUNT IS ALL THAT CAN BE COLLECTED.
"The total expenditure on this project to June 30 1912, has been $10,547,396.31,
in addition to which, farmers were assessed to complete the project $900,000.00."
"As the Reclamation Act provides that ONLY THE ESTIMATED COST OF
CONSTRUCTION MAY BE RECOVERED BY THE GOVERNMENT, the Govern
ment's loss on this project to end of the last fiscal year appears to be $6,747,396.31."
"This enormous loss on one project is due clearly to the incompetence of the offi
cials of the Reclamation Service."
By the passage of the Extension Bill the right of the Government to payment of
the entire cost of the project, amounting to $10,547,396.31, plus $900,000.00 and as
much more as shall be expended, has been recognized and the land owners are re
quired to assume a burden of $7,597,396.31 not authorized or justified by law.
IF THE INTEREST OF THE WATER USERS HAD BEEN PROTECTED
OVER SEVEN AND ONE-HALF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS WOULD HAVE
BEEN SAVED TO THEM.
At no time has Senator Smith raised his voice in favor of limiting the indebted
ness to the amount of the original estimate. Had the farmers received their just due,
that is, the charge against the project limited to the amount of the original estimate
made by the Secretary of the Interior, NO EXTENSION OF TIME WOULD HAVE
Will you send a man to Washington who has been so indifferent to your interests
as to permit this unjust burden to be placed on your landa, contrary to law?
It is small wonder that the extension bill passed unanimously, for by its passage
the Governemnt receives oyer seven and a half millions it is not entitled to receive,
and the farmers are compelled to pay it.
WAKE UP AND PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS.
If I am selected to represent Arizona, I promise I wiU save the farmers of Salt
River over SEVEN AND A HALF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS, and the YUMA
FARMERS THE AMOUNT THE ESTIMATED COST OF THE PROJECT IS EX
CEEDED BY THE AMOUNT EXPENDED.

This and other matters of importance will be discussed at a meeting at the Y. M.
C. A. Saturday evening, September 5, 1914. Ladies especially invited.
