Jl'XE 16. 1915 lYrpetual devotion to .vhat a man calls liis business is only to be sus tained liy perpetual neirleet of many other things. And it is n-t by an)' means certain that a man's business is the most important thing he has to do. IJohert Louis Stevenson. The Public Land Bill That Arizona will have a land poltcv seems prob !:.!. We supiiose there are mem:ers of the legis lature, perhaps enough ;o prevent the passage of Hie public land hill, who would defeat it if there v. ere- anything to be gained by doing so. There are two extreme elements winch vill probably be .lis-;:ti.-fied with the bill, but it's defeat would serve 1 1.- purpose of neither of the.n. It may be, to., tiat there are a few members who would prefer to have no further legislation, at all on the sublet t if the public lands, but their number is so small as to be negligible. Most of those who are directly interested in the lands desire some sort of legisla tion, and the people at ianje Vertainly desert e it i; they are to receive t'.ic tenetit of the goern loent's magnificent Rift to the state. The house has passed the bill by exactly the niiuired number of votes. Our opinion of tisosj ho voted against it is such that we believe that if their votes for tne tiil had been nee led. most them would have been given. They merely pieserved an apearance of consistency in oppo s.tion. which would not have been carried to the point of htimful obstruction. What amendments the senate will mal e to the i :l! is uncertain, but the most important one at tempted will prooablv be a change in the forma tion of the land department. Many of trte house le:.b-rs have exjvected that from the beginning', ii hi forecasts of it were twice made in the house when amendments proposing such a change were oliered there. Probably other changes will be made by the tiate. but it is not th:u?ht that they are such as would alter the symmetry of the bill, winch most of the senators have said, 'n a gncal way. ntets l heir views. Th-y hae admitted t.nat an hot est tifort ap pears to have been made in the bill to treat all interest.- fairly, and that the first care seems to l.ae been to protect the interests of the state, wl.ieh, bv the way, is the only party having the lights of an owner in the public lauds. The Foreign Ministry lCaslern papers, regarJleta of party, are adve ntitial what they call a cov.lition" cabinet, a name i..Ken from the new British ministry, recently foimed, to take the pla-.e of the rjarty ministiy which had. bi ought the country into a state of mlarrasnncn; if not into the iace of oeril. '1 v.jis realized that war was not a time for playing 1-olitics. Ducks and drales could not be made of li.c empire in order that a patty might be given an advantage. Such newspapers as the New York Times, a fUiunch RiipiH-rter of the administration; the New Vork (Tribune, republican; the 'New York Herald, i.;iyf independent, and the World, democratic. i.rge the apointment of a man of sufficient mag nitude to the office of secretary of state. All of them suggest the names of Klihu Hoot or Joseph II. C'hoate, both repulaicana. In placid times, it does not rr.ake vnu'ih differ ence who the secretary may be. The office rums along smoothly under the direction of fairly well trained assistants and counsellors, but the times now' are extraordinary, and but for the firmness and good reuse of the president, the country would now lie s. If-humiliated or in peril of war. It appears that be is steering a safe course between these evils, l'-ut the peril is not yet passed. W'e supiose fliere are men in the democratic party who would measure up to this great office. Among them may lie mentioned SeVetary Lane of Oie interior department, who, perhaps, without dip lomatic training, is endowed with natural ability which would no doubt enable him lo discharge the duties of that great office in the most trying times, t'ome of our foremost diplomats have been men without experience, but with great aoility. It does r.ot make so much difference whether the secretary of state Is a democrat or a republican, but we have otn latelv with regret that it makes a difference if the secretary is chosen for no other reason than that he'Ms a strong paity man. The White Slav Law Sustained To distinguish commercialism from personal Im morality in the application of the Mann White Slavs law would be to render the law Inoperative. The law, it Is true, war enacted to prevent trafficking iii. the souls and bodies of women for monetary gain, but it was necessary to make It sufficiently comprehensive to eovtr every case of tr.e trans-I-ortation of a woman across a state boundary for Immoral purposes for any Immoral purpose. If it was required to be show-i that violators of the law expected to reap financial gains, there v ould probably be few convictions, for the com mercialism of the transaction could be ho easily hidden. If the government were pinned down to the proof of any particular motive for transporting women across state boundaries, it -would probably fail, just as the prosecution would fail in many murder cases if it were confined to the establish ment of a particular motive for the commission of the crime. When the Mann law was being framed, it was the subject of discussion and the object of vigorous r-piKisition covering a long period. That wo'.ier. were being trans)orted across slate boundaries for immoral purioses and vithout exectation of finan cial gain was well known. It could not. therefore, have happened that ' congress unintentionally in cluded in the law such acts of transportation when it was meant to punish only commercialism in ice. Probably congress would not have enacted any law on the subject but for the fact that white slavery had become a menace, and white slavery is a form of commercialism. But in enacting a law to catch white slavers, congress had to make it tiroad enough to cover every avenue of escape of the white slaver. The Edmunds law, which was eiactel several yeurs ago against the practice -if polygamy, wa made broad enough to cover all improper relations between men and voinen. but it would not havt bet n enacted but for the agitation against polyg amy. It was then contended, just as it has been contended in the case of Camineiti, the alleged white slaver, that the law was not directid against casual improper relations. But the courts held tiisit, though it had not been primarily so dlrecteu, its terms were necessarily anil in.ntioiially such us to include those casual relations. otherwise, if the casual relation w.i not to be held to be a iolation of the law it would be di'ficuJt to show tnut a polygamous relation was not a 'tie-e casuai relation, an ordinary immobility. The refusal of the L'nited tSates supreme court to review the proceedings resulting in the conviction of '"aininetti will prooaoly be followed by a. re vival of activity in thhc prosecution of offense similar to that of which he was convicted. Pending this decision, the law iias rather been held in abeyance. Though it had lieen sustained by t'K federal courts, through which the cases of Cami neiti and I)igg4 have passed, there was yet a belief that the court of la-st resort would S'istain the con tenlions of the defendants. The lower comts had not actually passed upon ihe main point of the defense. The supreme couit itself has delivered no pronouncement. It hus simply ignored it, thereby affirming the lower courts, where this tpiestion wa.- raised p.nd passed uion. ITALIANS WELCOME IN IRELAND Towards the end of the Kighteemh Century : he resident noblemen of Ireli.nu spent a largo uninunt of money in decorating their in liisions a mies sary outlay at a time when there whs a regular Dublin season, and when the Irith country gentle man had his seat in either the Irish house of lords or t he Irish house of commons. They were espe cially anxious to gie beautiful interiors to laeir mansions, which were stately though ratl.er severe, aia! they invited to Oublin a number of Italian workmen who might bring to tie humid din. ate of Ireland something of the grace, the joy and snn sl iue of the south. Thus there grev i:p in Dublin f r some yuars a small colony of Italian decorators. The idei tity in religion lietween Italians aiid Iribl .nay perl.aps explain why the Italian exile has tietn always some thing of a figuie in Dublin lift. lie h;-s always been represented by the henutiful boy that hawks the statuettes of the saints and the other figures of the New Testament whiih Irish families so dearly love to have a.non? their household posses sions and ornaments. FIND OLD INDIAN FELICS Detroit Discoveries in the vicinity of Pent wa ter, Mich., seem to confirm the theory that the Aztecs once inhabited the nort'iern pa; I of the l'nited States. An ancient graveyard has been .in earthed with skeletons and many relics. AH of the skeletons faced te east, and thf bodies had been buried in a sitting posture. The relics included. Copper heads s:rung on knotted hair. Art elaborately carved stone pipe in ihe shape of o bird's head. A copper snake six inches loner, forming a pen dant. This was found on the breast of a child.

It issues a bulletin to proclaim: "The re port of -I. D. Burks, efficiency director, made pub- . lie today, places Los Angeles as second city in the United States in jioint of area. This followed the anexation of San Ternarido and Falins territory t a recent election." The total area of Ixis Angeles now is 79 square miles. New Y'ork, with 286 m'.les, being the only city with a larger expanse of terri tory. The ten cities of the United States having the largest areas are: New York, 2S square miles; Los Angeles, 27; New Orleans, 196; Chicago, 184; Philadelphia, 129; Cincinnati, 66; Saint Louis, 61: Washington, 60; Kansas City, 58; Rochester, 67. This excludes the water areas, which are some times included in the statements of territorial size. If these be included. New Orleans would have 270 square miles, "San Francisco 127 and Seattle 94.

I I I OLENDALE i i CELESTA SMITH DIES OF BLOOD POISONING One of the saddest funerals ever held in Glendale was that of Celesta Smith, the fifteen year old daughter of ltev. and Mrs. J. U. Smith, who died about three o'clock yesterday morning after an illness of but a few days. She was a strong and vigorous voung girl, beloved' by everyone. Her illness started with a small pimple at the corner of the mouth. No particular thought was given the matter at first, but it grew more and more painful until in a few days it was found that blood poisoning had set in. and owing to the location of the trouble it was impossible to administer treatment to check the poison. She died singing praises and declaring that she was ready to go. The funeral was conducted by Rev. J. II. Helm, a life-long friend of the family, at the Baptist church, with interment at the local cemetery' Di ceased leaves a father and moth er and six brothers and sisters, be sides a large host of friends to mourn her loss. TElfPE NEWS NOTES TWO COMPANIES FIRE FIGHTERS FOR TEMPE 1 MESA NEWS NOTES l Lively Meeting of the Firemen and Citizens Guarantees Two Fast Hose Companies Mrs. B. S. White, Mrs. J. J. Gump. Mrs. It. F. Stauffer. Mrs. J. M. Pear son, Mrs. A. A. Carrick. and Miss Herna-e McClnngh y composed a party that spent today on the Arizona canal. The friends of Mrs. Helm, who has been at the Sisters Hospital several days, will be glad to know that she has so far recovered that she will return home this week. Mary Valoff Is a Russian girl, who i is always uncomfortable when she finds something that she does not understand, and this unfortunate dis position was responsible for her loos ing the ends of three fingers and a thumb yesterday when she, attempted to find the contents of a dynamite cap about two Inches long, by holding the cap in one hand and striking It with a hammer. Dr. Hill was i celled and dressed the wounds. She Is doing: nicely at this time. That Tempe will soon have from twenty-five to thirty volunteer firemen is evidenced from the enthusiastic meoting held at the city hall Monday evening. .Two companies are being or ganized, one to be composed of Mexi cans and one of Americans and even though the muster roll had been open but twenty-four hours, practically all of the required material had been signed up last evening. Enthusiastic citizens and firemen gathered at the meeting Monday night to discuss the reorganization and there was a rousing spirit of co-opej-ation manifested that practically guarantees the assemblage of two fast companies. The idea of permitting only Mexicans to join the company No. 1, of East Tempe, and only Americans to join Company No. 2, of West Tempe, will stimulate rll the required interest to keep the organization intact. This week temporary firemen are scouring their districts in search of the best avail able material and the n-w and old members will meet again next Monday evening to fullv complete the reorgani zation. Contests will be the staff of life in the new department. It is planned to get the companies into ative jjractl'V and to within the next month or so pull off a hundred yard run for water. There is also a possibility that the two Tempe companies will combine, for a contest with Mesa on the Fourth, of July.
