New Appropriation .Makes
it Possible to Take Over
Laterals and Deeds May
Now lie Transferred at
Project manager C. II. Fitch, yes
terday gave out the information, that
115 miles of laterals will be taken over
by the reclamation service at once.
The transfer will be made by deed,
and is made possible by the appro
priation of $1011,000 recently made for
the rebuilding of the distributing sys
tem, for the Salt River Valley project.
The farmers have not been coming
in fast enough with their deeds, and
unless they are all in at once, the funds
now available, will not be on hand.
The reason for thin, is that after that
date, all funds for use in this depart
ment, will be apportioned by acts of
Some days ago, the "hurry up" word
was sent out from headquarters to all
project workers, the object of this be
ing to finish up all work while the
fiimta are available.
As soon as all the deeds are in. sur
vey gangs will be sent out, and speci
fications and plans, will be submitted
to the Water Users' Association for
approval, after which work will be
started with a rush. All work must
be finished by the first of July, and
with this view in end. all workers on
the project will use every means at
their disposal to accomplish all of
their present work in the shortest pos
sible time.

Prussian frontier and troops are be
ing rushed from the interior to check
the German advance which is being
made on a front of some two hundred
miles in extent across the provinces
of Vilna and Grodno.
In the Carpathians heavy fighting
continues, and the Russians claim they
have repulsed all Austro-German at
tacks, while in Bukowina, the Aus
trian!), with German supporters are
pushing across the country. They have
captured Kolomoa, in Galicia, about
sixteen miles north of the Bukowina
It is again reported and this time
officially, that they are in possession
of Czernowitz , the capital of Buko
wina. The Allies are in hopes of re
lieving Ihe pressure if the Russians
have taken the offensive along the
western line, and although French and
German accounts differ as to the re
sult, this, It is evident, the French and
British will be able to make gains at
some points, which they say tiKight
have bee maintained.
The Germans report they have vol
untarily evacuated the village of Nor
roy. to the north of Pont a Mousson,
which they captured last week, after a
severe fight.
A French report says the Germans
have been driven out. The dispute
between Greece and Turkey over the
Constantinople has been settled by a
personal apology. There has been pub
lication of this in Turkish newspapers.
The White Star Steamship Adriatic,
from New York, February ten, cross
ed the Irish sea during the night but
did not resort, as did the Lusitania
some days ago, to the use of the Am
erican or other neutral flag to evade
German submarines.
Other ocean liners and freight steam
ers are maintaining their regular
schedules. A fleet of freight steam
ers left Denmark for England with
provisions aboard, and it to keep track
of these, it is believed, that German
airships, one of which was destroyed
by fire yesterday, ami another report

have been so active.

ble with an amendment to provide
that government ships be admitted to
coastwise shipping. This amendment
was defeated by a vote of 54 to 43,
the agreement which has prevailed
lor many weeks being entirely broken
up. Twenty-two republican senators
voted with the administration demo
crats, and some of the regular demo
crats joined with the recalcitrant
democrats and progressive republicans.
Senator Hitchcock then renewed his
amendment to prevent the exportation
of munitions of war to belligerent na
tions. This was tallied by a vote of
51 to 36. An amendment by Senator
O'Gorman to prohibit the purchase of
belligerent ships was tabled, 45 to 43;
one by Wm. Alden Smith to create a
commission to study the problem of
ocean transportation was tabled, 52 to
31, and one by Senator Poindexfer to
prevent government ships plying be
tween the United States and bellig
erent ports met a like fate.
Another Poindexter amendment to
authorize the president to expend
thirty million for the construction of
ships in American ship yards and to
operate them outside of the war zone,
also was defeated.
The Fletcher motion to send the
bill to conference then prevailed with
out a dissenting vote.
The conferees appointed were: Sen
ators Fletcher, Ransdell, Martin, Sim
mons, Nelson. Burton and Crawford.
Senator Martin announced that to
morrow he would move to take up
the legislative appropriation bill.

sion. in favor of Engineer W. R. Elliott,
already the association's man. and es
teemed as such, more valuable than in
the job a few tried to give him. These
things, the fact that the Yuma project
has finally concluded not to accept the
plan of Secretary Lane for reviewing
and revising downward, if necessary,
the costs of the projects, were the big
developments in yesterday's prelimin
aries to the big El Paso central meet
ing today and tomorrow.
It developed in this wise:
The first motion on record, was to
approve the report of the special com
mittee, recommending Jones, and to ap
point Jones forthwith.
This was amended by Motion of Al
ma Davis to read that the joint meeting
approved the report of the special com
mittee recommending Jones, and that
it appoint Elliott forthwith.
This was obviously an inconsistent
treatment of a grave matter and after
a long argument, in which Mr. Davis
asked the meeting to resolve itself in
to a committee of the whole, then for
a recess and finally for a caucus, it
was brought to a vote on the amend
ment, which was defeated, 24 to 5, by
a vote in which there was the follow
ing line-up:
Board: For North and Dobson;
against, AYilkinson, Johnson, .Hansen,
Casey, Rockwell. Grecnshaw, Bennitt,
Clemens and Orme.
Council: For Graham. Davis and
Tweedy: against Waltsr, Patch,
Kuchler, Greenhaw, Kay, Hilbers, Heed,
Jack, Townsend. Irvin, Tweed, Murphy,
Miller, Creighton, J. H. Dobson and
On the original motion, the vote was
even more lop-sided, for Graham,
North anil Dobson switched to Jones,
making the vote 27 to 2 in favor of the
Dallas man.
The one result of the division was to
give Mr. Elliott some unpleasant prom
inence. The overwhelming vote for
Jones was due partly to the fact the
meeting or most of it knew him to
be uniinestionably the best man for it,
and partly because the members want
ed Elliott to remain as project engineer
and a sort of adviser to the represen
tatives, rather than the representative
Jones Signs Up
Engineer Jones arrived in Phoenix
at noon, and within a few minutes had
signed the contract, enlisting "for the
war." His stipend is $7,300, and for
this sum. he not only furnishes his
own services, but those of a civil en
gineer to help him go over the work,
and his own office force, in making up
reports, copying and compiling the
voluminous data regarding feature
Want None Of It
Frank W. Hanna, who has not yet
disassociated his supervising-engineers
personality from his new one govern
ment representative on the Salt River
Valley cost review board learned by
wire yesterday that the Yuma water
users, meeting with President Thacker
had agreed not to accept the plan of
Sec. Iine to fix the project costs. Al
though it pointed out that they bad
nothing to lose, and possibly consid
erable to gain, they refused to en
dorse the plan.
one result of this will be that there
will be only three projects in the group
representing the southern part of the
southern reclamation district. These
will be Carsbad and Rio Grande in
New Mexiea and Salt River Valley in
Arizona. Six men, therefore, will meet
in El Paso today to nominate three
men. whom Sec. Lane will consider in
selecting the third member, who shall
be common to all three boards, unless
the request of the Salt River project for
Its Own Third Member
goes through with the secretary of the
Believing that the work on the Salt
River project will be heavier than on
the other two put together, the joint
meeting has asked Sec. Iine to con
sider naming one "third member" ex
clusively for this project. This will
be disoused in El Paso today at the
central Electing of all the review board
members and referred to the secretary
with the meeting's opinion.
Some Resolutions
Complimentary to the retiring sup
ervising engineer, Rudolph Johnson in
troduced tnis resolution, which was
adopted unanimously:
WHEREAS, Mr. F. W. Hanna has
resigned bis position as Supervising'
Engineer of the Reclamation Service
in order to retire to private life, now,
therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this joint meeting
of the Board of Governors and Council
of the Salt River Valley Water Users
Association do hereby express to Mr.
Hanna our regret over the loss of his
services in the position he has filled
with such distinction, and that we de
sire in tlvs way to express to Mr. Han
na our appreciation of his uniform
courtesy and constant co-operation
with this association, both as a mem
ber of the Survey Board and also as
Supervising Engineer of the Reclama
tion Service, and be it further
RESOLVED, That we express to Mr.
Hanna our earnest wishes for his con
tinued success in the future.
Rudolph Kuchler brought forward
this 1'esolution, which was also adopt
ed unanimously:
"We extend our good wishes and lend
encouragement to the chamber of com
merce in its effort to have an appro
priate celebration at the Roosevelt
Dam some time next month, such cele
bration to be known as "High Water
Day" and to have for its object to in
spire confidence in the splendid future
we believe to be in store for the val
ley." And Some Departures
Hanna. government representative,
and Jones, project representative, left
last evening for El Paso to join the
representatives of the other projects in
a meeting, which is to determine who
snail be the three candidates for mem
bership on the" three project cost re
view boards. The meeting will prob
ably take two days, and immediately
upon its conclusion. Hanna will has
ten to Iowa, to become once more a
simple tiller of the soil, until the work
of fixing the construction costs is so
well organized that he can come bad
to lend his valuable assistance.
EL PASO, Feb. 18. Jack Johnson,
has landed at Tampico and sent mes
sages to the promoters of the fight
here. He is expected to arrive in Juar
ez Sunday for his fight with Jess Wil
lard on March 6.
From Tampico Johnson will probab
ly take the Cardenas branch of the
Mexican railway which runs directly
west to San Luis Obispo and thence
will travel northward to Torreon and
Juarez. The Carranza representatives
here said Johnson would be given a
safe conduct to the Villa lines.

ever to that article of furniture. Mr.

but ho did not want the bill post
poned. Some good might come out
of it by eliminating about two-thirds
of the measure including the more
objectionable features. Various sug
gestions wore made by Messrs. Webb,
Campbell and others and finally the
Lovin motion to postpone indefinitely
went to a vote with the following re
sult: Ayes Bacon. Campbell, Chase, Crabb,
Goldwater, Karns, Kinney, Lovin.

Nays Claridge, Colter, Drachman,
Garvin, Martin, Munds, Riggs,
Stapley, Webb 9.
Mr. Goldwater moved to reconsider
the vote by which the bill had been
indefinitely postponed and and when
that was adopted, to clinch the mat
ter, be moved to lay the motion on
the table and so, dispose of it for
ever. But here the majority balked
and the motion was lost. This leaves
the resurrection of the bill possible
within the next two days.
One feature of the discussion was
the first set speech of Senator Chase
of Greenlee in the course of the ses
sion. While the excitement was at
its height Mr. Chase arose and de
livered himself in this wise, conclud
ing with the remark that he had kept
nothing back of his views on the
question of prohibition. The re
marks of Uncle George:
"As long as human society has ex
ited, the opinions of men regarding
that which is most vitally essential
to human morals and human happi
ness have probably differed. The so
cial fabric we live in today has not
been bulit up by the. thought, the
opinions, or the achievement of one
man, one set of men, or one race
of men in these modern days. When
the principle of the rule of the ma
jority is recognized throughout the
civilized world as the most equitable,
if not the most perfect form of gov
ernment, it is well to bear this fact
in mind. It is scarcely necessary to
say that unless this rule of the ma
jority were subject to certain well
defined limitations it would prove as
tyrannical in principle and as de
structive of human rights and human
iappir.ess as the most despotic form
of ancient government which is based
on the so-called divine rights of
kings. Startling as the assertion of
this doctrine would mean the first
step towards a genernl relapse of
mankind into a state of barbarism.
"The notion of some men that the
life of the savage is an example of
perfect and unrestricted freedom is
a complete fallacy, as a mere glance
at man in his primitive state will
prove. Consequently, the savage
knowing no liberty knows no crime.
It is true he kills, burns, and robs
whenever opportunity offers, but
these acts are not the exercise of
individual liberty because they are
committed as a matter of might not
.of right. There is nothing strange
in all this, ihe history of the human
progress, the evolution of the sense
of individual human light, has proven
the truth of this. There is no rec
ord in the history of mankind which
would indicato that these laws weiv
established otherwise than by the
common consent of all men who do
not regard them a an infringement
of liberty of action and law. Then
if it conforms to our established no
tion of the equal rights of men. ex
press not a rule of action which is
prescribed by a superior, and which
the inferior is bound to obey. I do
not say all men are subject to the
equal restriction or constraint of the
law. All men are entitled to the
equal protection of the law. I want
no protection against my own folly
nor am I willing, as a matter of
equity, to concede to any man the
right to be protected at my expense
against his folly.
Our latter-day prohibitionists af
ford the strongest proof that this
fact is recognized, even by those who
are today promulgating the doctrine
that individual man must yield up
what we call his personal liberty for
the benefit of what a certain class
..f men say majority consider to
be the need of the community at
large. Arizona is the fourteenth
state in the Union. On November
1914, by a majority vote, prohibition,
came to the state. This was an in
itiative act, and to be tested for
two years, and it is the opinion of
many that it will prove beneficial
to the individual, and bring pros
perity to our commonwealth.
"Three years have elapsed since
Arizona was admitted to statehood.

have been enacted, our public in

Why the modem woman
insists on Cottolene
Because Cottolene was in the van of the great movement for
the improvement of food products and the bettering of house
hold service that is part of the reason.
Because Cottolene established its leadership as a cooking fat
over a quarter of a century ago that is part of the reason.
But, three times a day there appears on the table the best
reason why the modern woman insists on
Cottolene cannot be excelled and never has been equaled for
quality, purity, and for producing foods that are more whole
some, more digestible and more delicious.
There is an appetizing appeal
in the knowledge that Cotto

Other Matters in the Senate
On the opening of the session tele
grams were received from Secretary
Gray of the Warren District Com
mercial Club and J. J. Bowcn of
Bisbee urging the passage of the
S. B. No. G4, one of the good roads
tills. The president interrupted the
proceedings to inquire if any one
had heard from Mr. Karns, who had
been ill the afternoon before and
was: not new in his seat. One of
the members relieved the president's
apprehension by the statement that
Mr. Ivarns had been with him at
midnight. Soon after Mr. Karns en-1
tered and took his seat. i
In the course of the reference of
bills an effort was made to amend
the measure transferring $:i,000 to
the office of the state historian by
using only $.10o of the appropriation
for that purpose. Mr. Stapley ex- !
plained the need of the appropriation
at this time and the amendment was
defeated. The senate passed one of
the Tucson improvement bills, pro-
iding for the widening of streets
and the construction of subways. j
The following new bills were intro-I
By Mr. Chase, to regulate the sale
or convict-made goods, requiring
them to be so labeled.
By Mrs. Munds, to enable incor
porated towns and cities to establish
public libraries.
By Mr. Claridge, to revise the laws
for the assessment and equalization
of taxes.
By Mr. Webb, creating an annual
graduated land holding license. The
bill divides the lands of the state
into three classes: A. consisting of
irrigited agricultural lands and tim
ber lands; B, semi-arid lands: C,
grazing lands. The units fixed for
the various holdings are as follows:
A, 1M acres; y. 320 acres; C, 1.280
acres. For each unit the license shall
be $15 up to four units but beyond
that the license '.:ix shall be $110 a
Just before the noon adjournment,
President von Kloin-Smid of the uni
versity was invited to the floor and
the president's desk where be briefly
thanked the senate for the courtesy
shown him.
The afternoon session was devoted
entirely to committee matters.
Things That May Happen
Rumors of coming events floated
about the corridors. They related
to prohibition bills, but centered
mostly about mine taxing hills. It
was said that a bill for taxing the
mines, along the general lines of the
Graham bill would be brought into
the house today by Mr. Graham. It
was learned also on an authority
more definite than rumor, that a bill
is in course of preparation provid
ing for the taxing of mines on their
production but on the net instead of
the gross and the net. Provision will

also be made for the amortization
of the mines
This bill, it is understood, will be
thampioncd by one of the most ac
tive opponents cf the Graham bill
and will attract the support of many
others who opposed that bill. It is
believed, also that it will enlist tin
support of most if not all of the
sup! orters of that measure.
But there will still be a lineup
against such a bill, composed of
those who have committed them
selves again:-t any plan of asses
mnt bused upon production and
would leave the whole matter of
assessing the mines to the tax com
mission. But if there should be no other
opposition than this the bill would at-
