The Main-Line Dinner ' When they come, main-line railroads for Phoenix will come double; or. one will quickly follow the ether. The reasons which we may offer to the Tidewater road why it is to its advantage to ge: into this valley early will be equally appealing to tile Southern Pacific. There is not the slightest Coiibt that Loth these companies intend to put Phoenix on a main line. If we should sit .lon with folded hands, we suppose these roads would ! l-uilt some time. But tht element of time for us is an inioitanl one. We want a main line and we need it now. We are all aware of the fact that only exigen cies are impelling large undertakings now; that cap ital is being invested only in erteiprises which promise early and great profits. It is -not becauau money is scarce. Kither of the companies which are contemplating building into Phoenix could raise the necessary capital. They afe waiting only until conditions which arc now disturl-d shall ie settled. It is the business of Phoenix to offer them such an inducement to early action that they will pro ceed at once, knowing that the advantage they will i! rive thereby will offset any possible disadvantage that might result to them when the readjustment of conditions throughout the world is made. A meeting of the business men of Ph-ienix and vicinity will take place at a main-line-" dinner next Friday night. It should !; so well attended that it will be thoroughly reiresentatie; so that t!:e sentiment of eery community and every element may be presented, and so that it m ty be made l-.no.vn in a general way what inducement we may make to railroad builders to e-:iedite their work iiiid so that a general plan can be agreed upon. We believe theie is none at present, and It is Necessary that there should lie one and no more, along which we shall all work together. We trust that when the dinner is ended a plan will nave been agreed uKn, backed by every man in the community. A Study of the Columbidae The little things of this world are often the most momentous in disguise. The whole course of Lie is often turned v na given a new direction by some trifling incident. For instance, until within a Cuy or two we had lie er taken the slightest in terest in ornithological matters. We wee able, of touise, to distinguish a bird from a quadruped by turcfullj counting the legs ot each. We couid also distinguish bilds from fishes by noting the varying characteristics of feathers and scales. But now we know more than many professional ornithologists do, because of a hastily H-nned statement by a re porter for the Bisbee Iteview. who probably dis missed the subject from his mind without a thought that he was leading us into scientific research Here is the stalement that has exercised this mighty influence: "According to the stale game warden. G. M. ' V.'illard, the reason has closed on blue rock pigeons until lalS. This comes into effect under the pro visions of the federal migratory bird law.' After making inquiry without result concerning - the blue rock pigeon, we consulted the encyclopedias, but in the list of something, more than 300 varieties of the Columbidae tsmily. we could find no Mue rock pigeon. There as the rock pigeon and the fclue pigeon. At first we thought the blue rock p;geon was a result of :niscegenntloii in contraven tion of the laws of this state, but we learned later that the blue pigeon Is not really a pigeon at all. but the sailors- name for a deep-sea lead. , We next turned to the local 8Krting authori ties for information. One gentleman said the blue rH.k pigeon had an actual existence, regardless of the silence of ornithologists, but among sporting men, the word pigeon was seldom used the bird was technically known as a blue rock. It was so called because of its color, a solid black with yel low, and sometimes white, markings. One notice able characteristic of the blue rock, he said, was the absence of feathers. It should not be confounded with the rock pigeon, from which it differs in many, in fact, all essential respects. However, persons who had never made a comparative rtudy of the two varieties might easily be confused by the name given to the bloe rock !n some localities the clay I igeon." In reply to other queslioning. he said that the birds were migratory. They appeared in this lati tude at various seasons, but at no particular season of the year, but he had never observed, or' heard of their nesting In Arizona. They were undoubtedly under the protection of the federal game law. Blue rocks, he said, were indigenous to many liarts of the United States. A famous breeding pluce was in Illinois, where the blue rocks were hatched in great numbers, though our informant said he feared the flights from that and oilier hatcheries this year would be much smaller since it appeared that all sorts of American factories were laying aside their regular lines and putting in machinery to manufacture war material for the allies.' Less attention than formerly would, there fore, probably be paid to the propagation of blue rocks. The Unneutral Strike The Germans may sink American citizens, but we do not think this Christian nation vill long stand for their interference with our industrial a tivities by inducing out workmen to strike and sus pend the manufacture of aims, ammunition, poison ous bom. is and other civilizing ageuls. Still, we do not see how we can prevent such interference. The law against it is still more nebulouH than the inter nal lonal law which we have invoked against Ger many. In fact, there is no law at nil, or it so, it is dead for want of exercise. It is the right of any American citizen to precipitate a strike if he can. and under our treaty with Germany we cannot deny Germans, resident in this country, the same riirht. Muiiy a strike has been started by an interest com peting with the concern affected by the strike, and it is on record that manufacturing firms, for one purpose or another, have induced or forced their own men to strike. The fact that in such cases as that of the Bridgeport strike a neighboring and friendly power is inconvenienced by the strike does not alter the Mtuation in any respect. We have never heard oi' siah a thing as an unneutral strike. The telegraph editors of this country are the thief sufferers from the Mexican war. When there ure so many other things worth while going on In the world and the wires unload upon him stories of ludicrous Mexican "battles," in which line man is killed on one side and se en wounded, w ith four or five wounded on the inner, and hundreds s.'ared on both, thoughts suige over the telegraph editor that submerge and innie: 11 his immortal soul. What he thinks of the corresjiondents who send out this stuff would laud him in Jail if he pruned it. A l.o-hll hffstoall game is an interesting function, but these no-hit and much-run Mexican battles are a weariness to the flesh. When our navy iibajl be leorganized by Secre tary Daniels and Ms orps tf inventors and scien tists, the quarrelsome nations will lc scared b the wierdness of our contraptions into keeping the peace. Nations, like men, hesitate to go up agains' things they know nothing about. What are the modern battleships and cruisers of the warring nations for. anyhow 7 They apea:' to use only their old ones. .At any rate, we hear that only the old and antiquated ships are sent into dangerous places and destroyed. IN OTHER PEOPLE'S CLOTHES People whom wnury lia; never compelled in infancy or adolescence to wear oilier people's clothes nave misseil a valuable lesson in sor ial sympathy. It Is a strong man who feels that he is himself in another man's old coat. If an individuality is fine enough to be worth retaining, it is likely to be fine enough to disappear utterly beneath the weight of another man's shoulders upon one's own. Most of us would rather have our cree Is chosen for us than our clothes. Most of us would r'cther select our own tatters than have another's cast-off splendors thrust upon us. It Is no light achieve ment, the thing up to and ii.to other people's clothes. Clothes acquire so nmcn iieisonality from their first wearer adjust themselves to the swell of the chest, the quirk of the elbow, the hitch in the hip Joint that the first wearer always wears them, no matter how many times they may be given away, lie is always felt lo be inside, so that Hie second wearer's ego is constantly bruised by the pressure resulting from two gentlemen occupying the same waistcoast. The man who can receive another man's old clothes without thereby losing his self-respect is fi'. to be a prince among paupers, but the man who can give another man his old clothes without wounding thnt man's self-rescct is fit to be the king of all philanthropists. Atlantic Monthly. TORRENS REAL ESTATE TITLE SIMPLICITY Ohio recently amended its Torrens law whi"h is thr law that makes land transfers simplicity Itself. Sir Richard Robert Torrens. when he invented the Trrens system in Australia in 1S"7. hardly foresaw' the time that eleven American states, Hawaii, the Philippines and the isles of the sen '.vould adopt his theories of land registration that have proved o successful in their application on. the continert of Australia and in almost every British country of the globe; and elsewhere. The first parcel of land ever transferred In Ohio under the amendd Torrens law htis Just leen re corded in Cuyahoga county (Cleveland). The trans fer was made with the minimum of trouble and of expense, in striking contrast with the Intricate, tedious and costly procedure of the old method of conveyancing, Title is guaranteed hy the state Certificate of title was -ipplied for at the county courthouse at 2 o'clock. A fee. of $l.S0 paid to the county recorder. At 3 o'clock th certificate of title was passed to the purchaser of the land, lust one hour being reqtdred to make the transfer. Wall Street Journal.

JAMES GOODIN IS DEAD Contractor Who Built Old Exposition Building Was 80 Years Old James Goodin. a contractor and real estate dealer. 80 years old, died late one night last weeK at his home, f. 11 Oakland avenue, Kansas City, Mo. In the years lXSfi. 1KS7 and 1SS, Mr. Goodin bought land to the value of one million dollars, much of which he sold again. The old lOxposition building, mod eled a"fter the Crystal Palace of I.011 don, was Mr. Goodin's conception. A company known as the Interstate Fair association had equipped expo sition grounds in Westport, and - the exhibitions for which Kansas City was then famous had been held there from 1SSII to 1SSG. The land soon became too valuable for exposition purposes, and then the fair grounds were established between Twelfth and Fifteenth streets at Kansas avenue The Imposition building was proj ected by .Mr. Goodin as an individual project. He spent $Gr,)00 on the plan, and fhen, after vexatious do lays, decided to suspend operations until the following season, but a ruinber of citizens under the leader ship of T. A. Harris, feeling that the interests of the city demanded the immediate completion of the building, formed a corporation and carried the work through, $200,000 being sub scribed for the purpose. , The Exposition building for several years was one of the chief attrac tions of Kansas City. It was opened on uctoner e, insi. r-resiaent ana Mrs. Grover Cleveland attended thp fair and a crowd of fifty thousand passed in review before them. . The exposition hall stood until August &, 1901, when it was destroyed by.fire. Mr. Goodin is survived by his wife.
