Eastern Newspapers Tell of
City Streets Flooded.
Families Driven from
Their Homes, and R. II.
According to clippings received from
various eastern newspapers. Phoenix
was in a dire plight (luring the recent
rise of the Verde and Salt Kivers. Ac
cording to the stories sent out the busi
ness streets were flooded, many fami
lies rendered homeless and a general
condition of wreck and ruin obtained.
"It w mid be bad enough if these
stories were true." said R. H. Greene,
president of the Home Builders, yes

out foundation Phoenix is fiurt rather
than benefitted by such unwarranted
I have just received a letter from
Elliott Lee, president of the Anderson
Loan association, of Anderson, Ind.,
and also quite a heavy stockholder in
the Phoenix Home Builders. The let
ter speaks for itseir, but there is ohe
clause in regard to the fires which oc
curred in Phoenix about the first of
November and also about the recent
floods which were published so prom
inently throughout the east that should
be refuted. These unfounded stories
are undoubtedly doing heavy damage
to the community. 1 have had several
letters recently along the same line as
that of Mr. Lee."
The letter of Mr. Lee follows:
February 4, 1915.
"Mr. R. H. Greene,
I have been hearing bad reports from
your country and write to know how
much truth there is in them. I saw in
the papers that you bad a flood in' the
Salt River valley and that the streets
of Phoenix were flooded. " It is also re
ported that there is much dissatisfac
tion in your state since it was voted
dry. and that there have been many
mysterious fires in your city of late.
What truth is there in these reports?
"I returned from Florida a short
time ago, where I spent three weeks
looking over that state. I must admit
I was disappointed, both in the climate
and country. It is not to be compared
with your country in any way. It is a
low. wet country and has a clamp, chil
ly atmosphere. It is pleasant when tVe
sun shines, which was but little wh!te
I was there. There is quite an immi
gration from the north clown there and
many are making investments in or
ange nnd grape fruit groves, or in lands
to be cleared and planted in same. They
have all kinds of schemes to induce the
investor. Their groves are full of fruit,
with no market. I heard of a ear load
that a party shipped to a commission
agent, and when it was disposed of the
agent sent him a bill of $14.00 to pay
balance due for expenses of same. The
tourists and investors form about all
the smith's resources this year.

The charge of disturbing the peace,
was placed against List early in Oc
tolwr, by A. G. Smith, proprietor of
the Xew Palace Cafeteria, when he
became embroiled with the union,
over the question of employing union
labor in his restaurant. At that time,
List Is said to have been engaged in
picketing in front of the restaurant,
and declaiming in a loud voice, that
the New Palace Cafeteria was unfair
to organized labor, and should not

Roberts, the cashier of the place at
that time, the noise that List suc
ceeded in making, forced her to quit
her position, as she was unable to
successfully make change. She fur

i the rear of the place, and that the
piano was moved to the front, in or

of the employes of the place, testi

At the time of the opening
of the cafeteria Smith appealed to
the city commission for protection

tor of buildings, one assistant and a
stenographer, one half of whose time
is charged to this office, answered the
phone, attended to the issuing of per
mits and performed clerical work for
the other departments.
Recommendations: would earnest
ly recommend that the plumbing and
gas fitting ordinances be revised. The
present plumbing ordinance is inde
finite in some points, conflicting in
others and in great need of general
revision. The fees in the ordinance
relating to gas fitting are Inequitable,
and unjust, and the wording is such
that the ordinance may be construed
in almost any manner.
