Assessment for 1915 Snows but Slight j
Changes, but Increased Mileage j
Help to Raise Valuation j
Although but Klijrh: chanpes were
made in the valuation of the main
lines, the valuation of railroad prop
erty in Arizona for lyij shows an
increase of almost one million dollars
over the 1914 assessment. The total
by the state tax commission is $91,
ip41,4T2.70 as compared with $'.0,L'04.
40:!.r.u. The mileage this year, Is 2.28C.72.
or a little over 43 milea more than
last year. This increase is clue to
the 4t;ildinK of the Alafrma. Arizona
railroad which runs from Webster to
Superior, and the Mascot and West
ern, the new line from Wilk'ox to
the Vascot mines in t'oehise county.
The valuation of the Southern Pa
cific main line was fixed at $5,G00
and the Santa Ke at $G5,0' is com
pared with Jtil.ooo per mile for both
roads last year. The most strikinR
jebaniTo in valuation however, was
tne reduction ot tne valuation oi ine
ltay Mini Gila Valley from $114, ",00
per mile to $r.9.:;0a. This wan done
by the commission after a confer
ence with officials of the company,
at which it was aereed that what
appeared last year as excessively
lare eurniiiErs of the short line
should be reflected this year in the
earnings of the mines. The com
pany has already filed its report in
accordance with this agreement.
Cochise county is first with a va
luation of over sixteen million.-!, and
Yavapai second with $10.7".1,!C6.

For Twenty-Seven Years a Father
Waited Hopefully for a Letter
That Never Came
It was mid -June just JT years ao
when Abraham i.itth-john drew tip
le fore the general store in Xorth
Chicane. The soft summer winds
were s'tiinn amonj; the daisies and
buttercups that edged tile roadnay,
and from the tall r- ds near the
lake came the incessant croa!; f
bullfli.us. I.ittlej.ih.l's boots were
covered with dust. He had ridden
"II"llo, there!" he called cheerily
to the keeper of the store. "iot a
letter there for me? "Spectin" o:i.
'."ot yet.'' replied the postmaster.
keeper nt the village store, and Judge.
".Vail late, though. lie here tomor
row, guess. How's your corn a
comin' l-ittlejohn, a robust, healthy man
of r.0. threw an answer over his
shoulder and pulled away os-er the
dust covered road. He came th- next
day and the next yes, and for many
days thereafter. The days crept into
months and the months into years.
The daisies and buttercups retreated
farther and farther from the road
way. The croak of the bullfrog
grew fainter. The general store was
replaced by an up-to-date notion
store. Factories began to spring up
along the little railroad that passed
through the edge of the village.
The old postmaster died and a new-
one came. Littlejohn had to tell his
story all over again.
"My son John went away saying
he would write a letter in a little
while," he narrated. "f am coming
down here every dav till that letter
comes. He'll write, John will." And
he nodded his head in affirmation.
Twenty-seven years passed. Motor
cars roared past the spot where
Abraham Littlejohn paused that
first mid-June day. A little way
off a locomotive was coughing. The
noon special was ready for the city
The bullfrogs had pone, and one had
to walk until he grew tired before
he spied a buttercup or daisy. And
Abraham Littlejohn had become
white-haired; his robust figure had
shriveled and his shoulders stooped.
His vaiice cracked when he talked
"Any letter from John?" he asked
the clerk in the cage last Saturday.
The latter shook his head wistfully,
The old man trudged out, his shoul

he didn't call. The clerk dropped a
remark to his superior. The latter
told the police; they went to his
home. In bed, peace overspreading
his thin, lined face, lay Abraham
Littlejohn dead. The vigil was at
an end. Minneapolis Journal.
Tempe Council May Be Requested to
Repeal Ordinance Providing for
A petition addressed to the members of
the common council of Tempe request
ing them to repeal ordinance No. IMS
that was recently pasned making pos
sible tlie creation of a board of public
works and the appointment of a man
ager, will be circulated among the
qualified voters of the town today.
Just what the sentiment is regarding
the recent ac tion of the council in cre
ating the manager job, has been a hard
matter to determine. ne of the fro
motors of the petition said last eve
ning lie thought it would he possible
to secure the signatures of as many as
seventy-five per cent of tlie voters.
No ili feeling is born between the
citizens of the town and the council.
There is merely a felling on the part
of the taxpayers that they are. being
ovrburdened already and that the $100
a month expended in pament of the
manager's salary is possibly a little be
on.l necessity. Some of the more en
ergetic taxpayers who are thus in
clined yesterday thoroughly investi
gated the matter and will today circu
late thr petition asking that the ordin
ance providing for tin' position of man
ager be repealed.
The rumor to the effect that recall
petitions (ere out against the council
men and town clerk and had been lib
erally signed has proven groundless.
Just the one petition providing for the
recall of the manager position will be
presented to the tax .avers and there
is little doubt but that it will he given
due attention by the aldermen if a reas
onable number of signatures are secured.

remainder of the summer. The other
members are planning on an extended
visit through California including the
two expositions, the Yosemite Valley
and then on north to points in Wash

THE OBSTACLES TO EVIL
In the constitution of our nature a
limit lies been fixed to the triumph of
evil. Falsity in theory is everywhere
confronted bv the facts which present
thcmevc to every man's observation.
A lie has not power to change the or
dinances of God. F.very day discloses
its utter worthlessness until it fades
away from our recollection and is num
bered among the things that were. The
indissoluble connection which our Cre
ator has established between vice and
misery tends also continually to arrest
the progress of evil, and to render odi
ous whatever would render evil afttflc-
tive. Francis Wnyland.
ALDERMEN IN SESSION
Another of the busy times for the
eouncilmen presented itself at the spe
cial meeting Monday evening. The
board of public works convened first
and devoted an hour or mure to the
discussion of various Improvements
about the town together with matter
pertaining to the sewer system. The
manager was present and asked for a
consideration of a number of matters
that had come to his attention during
his first day in office. That the duties
or n:s omee will keep him well on the
go is little doubted. Others matters i
of a public improvement nature were
presented to the council at its session
that kept the aldermen busy well Into
