To Remodel the Constitution
A determined movement has been launched in
Vavapai county, and which, we have been inforniei',
'.Mil receive accretion and acceleration from prac
tically every county in the state, to secure a it early
amendment of the state . constitution. It will be
ittiected first at the repeal of the mothers- pension
law, the anti-blacklist viaw and the 80 per cent, law;
Hie last named two are probably invalid. Occasion
will also probably be taken to soften the prohibi- ,
tion amendment, though in what respects we have
not been informed. The chief complaint against the
ligidity of that amendment was that it did not
allow those engaged in the liTioi trafic a sufficient
time in which to discontinue their business. Hut
however just that complaint might have been, it
; ii be of no force now, since the business every
where in the state has been discontinued, the stocks
have been disposed of ami, in most cases, the fix
tures have been removed. Those who may have
suffered loss could not be expected to re-engage in
business under any further amendment fiat might
give them what they might consider a reasonable
time to get ready to quit again.
We imagine that the real purpose behind this
movement is to secure more basic changes in the
constitution, especially with reference to the pop
ular legislation feature. We believe that we have
ail learned that we have been provided with facili
ties for legislation beyond our training and the
tiesire of the majority to make use of them. We
have had a lesson. Fortunately, perhaps, the very
awkwardness of those who precipitated some of the
legislation torced upon the state at the late election
has apparently defeated their puipose, and much of i:
will no doubt turn out to be as if it had never been.
Hut it has already had the bad effect of bringing
the state into disrepute. It has also shown what
an active and aggressive minority can accomplish
against a more or less inert majority. Perhaps, the
next time the minority would not make the miHtakes
which have probably saved the state from the oper
ation of several of these initiated measures in this
There is a desire on the part of manyl earnest
believers in the system of popular legislation that
lue constitution may be so amended as to make it
mure difficult to precipitate dangerous legislation,
by requiring that petitions must be signed by a
larger percentage of the voters, and by doing away
Willi the professional circulator. Other plans have
been proposed for the sifting of proposed legisla
tion, so that when it comes before the people with
a fairly strong sentiment behind it, voters will more
clearly understand the purpose and effect of it.
There may be some who entertain the vain hope
that the popular legislation system may be abol
ished t altogether. There is not the slightest pros
pect that that will ever be accomplished. The peo
ple will never surrender a right which has been
reserved to them. It would amount to stultifica
tion, an admission that the American people an?

This Case is in Good Hands
The Federal league could not have gone before
a more favorable tribunal for its purpose to charge
be National and American Basebail leagues with
a violation of the anti-tiust law, than Judge Kene
fuw Mountain Landis of Chicago. Judge Landis Is
not only an able jurist, but he is a good judge of
baseball as well. He is, In fact, described as .a
baseball fan, and a baseal! fan is one who feels an
honest interest in the game and deplores the com
biercialism which has enveloped it. He cares only
that the people may be given an exhibition of skill
commensurate with the aggregate receipts of the
box office. Judge Landis, like the rest of us, cares
nothing about the squabbles within the various
leagues. We only demand that they play ball and
play the game for all there is in it. That, we
gather, and Judge Landis must take judicial cogni
zance of it, is what the Federal league wants to do.
H wants to be left unhampered and unobstructed
by the older leagues; it wants to be left free to
collect the brightest coruscation of players in the
universe, and that is the phenomenon which all
Americans are awaiting.
Judge Landis has, moreover, proved his Im
patience of trusts and monopolies which exercise a
rtstraining influence upon sordid trade. How much
more marked must be his disfavor of those who
would throw a restraint upon the enjoyment by the
American people of the national game. If Judge
Landis could find it within him to impose a fine
of $29,240,000 upon the Standard Oil company, for
evading with harmless effect a single provision of
the anti-trust law, we shudder to think what he
will do to the National and American leagues. We
expect to see ban Johnson and former Governor
John K. Tener arrayed in striped clothing and
breaking rocks in the interest of the good roads
movement so that the American people may the
more easily reach the baseball parks where the
game will be played unhandicapped by the trusts.
Any interlocutory decree that Judge Landis ma
Issue in this matter will be confirmed by Judge
Perry M. Williams of Maricopa, who so approved
the fine in the Standard Oil case that he imposed
the same fine against a hobo who was brought be
fore him shortly after. It may be added that pre
cisely as much was collected of one fine as the
The Aristocracy of Words
The editor of the Continent, a Presbyterian pub
lication issued in Chicago, premising that "religion
is not the cheapest part of a man, and the appeal
that needs cheap phrasing can hardly be the best
ously the men who resort to more or less vulgar
slang in 'treating of serious things. After a plea
for the recognition of "the aristocracy of words,"
and calling for use, in the pulpit and even in private
speech, of "the words which have a right to good
verbal society," the Continent critic says:
"There has recently come to hand a book meant
in utmost seriousness by an earnest man, dealing
v ith grave problems of our social order. Yet we
are perfectly sure that part of its influence will be
lust by the readiness of the writer toie what in
a smaller man would certainly be called smart.'
He urges ministers to get onto their jobs; he
patronizes Uncle Sam when he refers to the gov
ernment; churches must get d:wn to brass tacks;
ve must all quit our monkeying.
"It is all quite comparable to the easy way of
a minister who calls out to 'that bunch of fellows'
in the gallery or in the back row to do this or sing
that, and who" declares that at the 'eatfest next
Friday night we will all -have a corking good time,"
and that the trouble with Christians is that they
will not get down on their marrow-bones to God.
and that he would rather see a man giggle his way"
into hell than whine bis way to heaven all of
these, alas, actual quotations. This is what we
mean by helping verbal interlopers into good so
ciely." With the best of intentions the Continent writer
has given the "familial speech" people an argument
which they will not be slow to use. For, strange
as it may seem, the word "aristocracy" is one wil'.i
which men who make appeals of any sort to pop
ular audiences delight to juggle.
LOSS CAUSED BY PREVENTABLE DISEASES
(Journal of American Medical Association)
Estimates regarding the loss caused by prevent
able diseases are always interesting, although neces
sarily general. The smaller the area affected, the
more accurate are tlu? figures apt to be. Professor
Irving Fisher's estimate, in his report on national
vitality, of the economic loss for the entire country
at one and one-half billions a year is familiar to
students of public health conditions. An estimate
recently issued by the Minnesota state board of
health shows the economic loss from death from
typhoid fever in Minnesota in the last siv, years to
be 121,958,940, while the deaths from tulierculosis are
six times as great and the loss three times as great
as from typhoid, or $!, 5X3,320, making a total of
$88,542,200 for six years, or an annual loss of $14,
757,043. In making this estimate the following eco
nomic values were used in computing the financial
loss from deaths: Professional, business men and
farmers, $500; skilled laborers, $:I0; unskilled labor
ers and domestics, $200; married women, $200; chil
dren under 15 years of age, $100. These valuations
are conservative and should represent the minimum
rather than the maximum loss.
AMERICA'S APPLE CROP
(Farm and Fireside)
America's apple crop, at a reasonable estimate,
this year will approximate 50,000,000 barrels. This
sized crop would furnish one-half barrel, or 150 ap
ples, for each member of our population. An apple
a day eaten out of hand by Uncle Samuel's family
from October to March "vould consume our entire
crop. This makes- no allowance for pie, apple sauce
and baked apples.
Our normal export of apples is about 2,000,000
barrels, so should no apples go abroad this year we
can each be allowed a half-dozen more, U apples
per capita. Really our apple market should not suf
fer if those six apples are kept at home.
Mrs. Kilgore was the pretty young wife of the
elderly village pastor. One day she went Into the
city with a friend, and among other thin?s bought
a new frock.
"Another frock, my dear?" said her husband.
"Did you need another?"
"Yes," said the wife, hesitatingly, "I 'do need it;
and, besides, it was so pretty that the devil tempted
"But you should have said, 'Get theje behind me,
Satan.' Have you forgotten that?" .
"Oh, no; but that wfs what made the trouble,
hubby dear. I said, 'Get thee behind me, Satan," and
he did; but he whispered over my shoulder. It just
fits you beautifully in the back!' And I just had
to take it then." Harper's Magazine.
Mrs. Black woke her husband one night and
whispered: "Larry, there's a burglar in the parlor!
He just bumped against the piano and struck sev
eral keys." ' '
"Is that so?" said Larry. "I'll go right down
there." 4 '
"Oh, Larry," whispered the excited wife, "don't
do anvthln? rash!"
"Rash?" replied the husband, "Why, I'm going
to help him. You don't suppose he can move that
piano from the house without assistance, do you?"

from them will not be taken in response
to the demand of "practical" irlen.
In the field of legislative and legal
action intended to put an end to fruud
ulant advertising the pressure has con
tinued steadily against forms of pub
licity that take wealth from the people
and steadily drop it into the fat pock
ets of "fake" manufacturers and tricky
traders. Federal, state and colonial
statutes have multiplied that make it
possible to enforce against dishonest
advertisers the same principles of hon
or that prevail in ordinary communi
cations between men. The crusade
against the printed lie is moving on,
witii the best type of publishers allied
with the advertising agents.
The year has not been a propitious
one, viewed solely from the pecuniary
standpoint, fur journals to jauntily turn
away advertising. Nevertheless the
encouraging fact remains that to an
unusual extent papers with Ideals of
ethics applied to t sources of income
have discriminated against business
that is commonly considered "tainted."
Certain forms of business that make
their profit from trade that does harm
to persons and to society have found
their field of advertising narrowed as
never before. Moreover more newspa
pers have' come to assume the position
of trustee or guardian of their readers'
interests on the pecuniary side, assur
ing them of the reliability of the goods
In brief, the year has disclosed In
creasing sense of responsibility by pub
lisher, by advertiser and by advertising
agent, for the real interests of the read
er. The moralist finds satisfaction in
such a record, as also the economist.
Honesty is the best policy, and truth
the best incentive to trade. Where sel
lers and buyers see this and act ac
cordingly prosperity is more stable
and is less influenced by conditions
that are unmoral and material. Where
they do not see it, they must reckon
with increasing social restriction and
higher advertising ethics. Chrustion
