LOG FIVE POINTS PHONE 1132 BOARD APPRAISERS i ' nl imieil from Pase Ono) fU"vint: lTs Tin-re "-i;ul leon hii! wqiiTt aiririatiins of water sr. thai fir tho nower 3 pin:.iiriatiins there was a shortage of w:itt-r as i-..irar(l with t.ie- supply fur the earlier lantls. amounting to l.Co per ont. On account of trip appropria tions the next year, the shortaa? was increased to 3.S4 per cent. Anil so on. it increased year ly year. s.ine years more rapidly than others, until J :. when it :iad reached 41.9 jicr cent. This column of the table is made up from a record of the I low of the river and the appropria tions of water for the last twenty five years. The last column of the table shows the va'ues of water rights for the lands appropriated in the years 1!0'.'. I'ack to the appropriations previous to 1 ?:. It will he observed t'.ia; the fipures of this column equal the sum of the opposite figures in the third and fourth columns. In cases where there appears to be a dis rrcianoy that arises from the fact that the decimals in the third col umn r.re not fully carried out. Tae later the appropriation of wafer for the lands, the smaller is the percentage of water ailov.cd to them in comparison with that to which lands prior to are en titled. That is shown in the third column. Such lands subsequent to lTS i;re entitled to storage water, that is. if sipned up in the reservoir, so that in fixing the value of their water richls. the board allows a per ifntaef of the 13 an acre, the ar bitrary vtlue fixed for I? and C lands. That percentage is shown in the fourth column. School lands of the T. and C lasses are not in the reservoir and in the applications for water for them it is set forth in the sixt.i paraiaph that in the srantins 'i tie application no right is admitted. The board however stated that the makinp of -the application placed sin h school lands in line for rights and cae them precedence over th" 3.'. HOI acres which had been stri'-ken out of the project by the review board. , H is believed that when these school lands pass into private ownership they will he admitted. It was for that reason that their rights were recognized at J15 an acre. Many suErjrestions tame to the board for the fixins of" vales. Some of them would have given the water riphts such values as would have wiped out the lands altogether and have left not even the an acre that the law requires shall be paid for t'le lands. These estimates of the values ran from $?" to tlfio an acre, in addition to the allowances for leveling, the land, constructing ditches, fences and making other im provement. One theory which was advanced assisted the board in ar riving at the rule. It was that since neither the land nor the water was of value without t'le other, each, the water and the naked land, should be adjudged to be of the same value. It was found that water right. under the old Arizona canal had sold for as much as $3." while the simple right to buy water had ben sold at $1T. But the values of the rights had been so fluctuating as in afford the board litle groundwork for making an estimate. More valu able to tho board were the prices at which rights under the Mesa and Tempe systems had beon disposed of. especially those of the Tempe system which now, since it is not in t'.ie project, are sold and ex changed. In estimating the value of the land, the board takes into considera tion its environment, its distance from towns, railroads and markets. In the opinion of the board sifch environment could not be taken into consideration in fixing the value of a water right. Therefore it was re solved to adopt a rule that would be applicable to land in every locality.

Central Ave. Phones Matter of Excess Lew of 'ArizomrPresbvterian Synod Graham Count v to Be Meets and Chooses Offi- Left to Sunrcme Court cers "Warm Debates Fol- "Will Settle Other Similar lowed bv Agreement Cases Whether or not the Graham coun ty tax levy, which is said to be J11.4S4 over the legai ten per cent limit, is to be declared legal and allowed to stand, is the question which is now up to the supreme court to decide. At the meeting of the state tax commission held yes terday afternoon it was decided to defer action on the matter and sub mit the question to the state's highest tribunal, with a hope that that body might settle the tangle. The case grew out of the fact that some time ago the board of super visors of Graham county authorized a tax levy, amounting to $18.00(1, this sum said to be $11,484 in excess of the. sum which could be legally lev ied under Section 4S.,9 of the Re vised Statutes. This section pro des that a tax levy cannot be made which represents more than a ten per cent increase over the levy of the preceding year and yet sec tion TlTTS provides that a levy for the purpose of constructing a bridge? over a non-navigable stream (the ooject of the Graham county levy) may be made, and makes no mention of ihe fact that the supervisors must keep within the tea per cent limit. In a measure the two sec tions are in conflict, and there is some doubt as to which applies in ';.e O-iham ceunty case. Instead of making sn order regarding the mat ter, the tax commissioners decided it would be best for the supreme court to pass on it. This amounts practically to a decision in favor of the Graham county officials, inas much as the board did not issue any order which would prevent them from collecting the amount of the levy. Gibson Taylor, secretary of the Arizona Kastern railroad company, v. i;o had filed tho complaint ques tioning the legality of the levy, noti fied the board and the representa tives of Graham county yef'.errfav that he would at once petition the supreme coi;rt for an order restrain ing the supervisors from at;.nipting to eollrct the levy. Til commenting on the matter yes terday. "'. H. Howe of the commis sion, said: "We believe the ques tion should be left to the supreme court for a decision, in view of tho fact there is some conflict in the sections of the statutes which bear on th? subject, and in this instance we have not considered the merits of the case, but we havs simply passed the buck' to use an every day expression, and are depending on an order from the supreme court to set us right. This case is very much similar to the proposi tion from Yuma county which some time ago confronted tis, and the same trouble is likely to recur again, as both Cochise and Pima, counties consider the levying of similar sums, and we would have the whole matter to thresh over again." At the hearing of the action yes terday. Assistant Attorney General Harriett appeared in behalf of the tax board, while Attorney John M. McGowan was present to present the Graham county side of the matter. County Treasurer F. M. Layton of Graham county was also present. o IHYEflS TO REPRESENT (Continued from Page One) Meeting Todav citemont here tonight. It was only what the strikers expected. Suspicion that the Duncan "refugee" camp is really a concentration camp and that the companies plan to rush in strike-breakers is becoming more pronounced here. The strikers claim to have received information thit the companies have agents in southern Arizona and New Mexico gathering up all persons willing to join the colony. I-Yank T. Tarble of Morenci re turned today from a trip to Bisbee and Oouglas. taken for the purpose of buying supplies. He says he found it impossible to purchase anything at any of the Phelps-Dodge stores. He claimed he was followed by a detec tive from I,ordsburg to Ilisbee. Today the relief committee received a. carload of flour, a carload of beans and two thousand dollars worth of mixed goods. Two farmers from Duncan each brought up a wagon load of potatoes which they donated to the strikers. Another parade is planned for Sun day. It was reported that an effort is being miuic, principally by the Mexican strikers to force the Ameri can strikers at Metcalf to go and take part in the Clifton parade. The effort, however, is not likely to be successful. The executive committee tonight decided not to issue any more in struction to committee at El Paso, but. it is generally believed that the committee of its own initiative will tomorrow submit a rock botton prop osition and demand its acceptance by the managers. PREDICT SOME UPSETS (Continued from Page One) The' chances appear against a second victorv. Pennsylvania will meet a team ex ceedingly proficient in serial football. The followers of the I'nited States academy teams watch with unusual in terest the outcome of the Army Georgetown game, since three weeks ago Georgetown defeated the Navy. Today will mark the return of Co lumbia University to the football arena The Presbyterian Synod of Arizona opened Thursday with a rousing ser mon hi- Rev Fred G. Mitchell of Tol- chaco, the retiring moderator. The ad- i ministration of the communion tol i lowed in charge of Rev Chas. If. Alex ander of Flagstaff. The election of officers resulted in the choice of Rev. T. F. Cory, synodical missionary, as modeiator and of Rev. Dirk Lay of S;i caton and Mr. Alexander of Flagstaff as temporary clerks. A report of the committee on arrangements was pre sented by Rev. Henry M. Campbell o Phoenix and adopted. A report on the foreign missionary situation in the Presbyterian church, represented by Rev. Mr. Krichbaum, was highly commended by members of the synod and visitors from abroad. A report was presented by Rev. Chas. II. Ellis, of Salt River church on Sabbath observance and. temperance, particu larly interesting in reports from pas tors all over the state upon the effects ot the prohibition amendment. The principal interest of the session centered in the report of the committee on home missions which was presented by Rev. John Frey of Iiisbee. Several of the recommendations of this com mittee were warmly discussed but the greatest interest was taken in a pro vision that appropriations lor the wirk iu the state should be made by the 'Home Mission Road at New York in a lump sum to the' synod to be reappor tioned by the Synodical Home Mission committee. This arrangement was satisfactory to the Presbyteries of Phoenix anil Southern Arizona but was warmly oj, posed by that of northern A riser na and one lone representative of the Phoenix presbytery. Rev. Fraser F. Herndon of Tucson Papago church. The contention of the proponents was that this was simply a provision looking to fairness between the presbyteries but the opponents were of the opinion that it would result in unfairness to the in dividual missionaries.. The discussion waxed so warm that the moderator called a halt for prayer. Some mem bers of the northern division of the synoil even threatened to refuse to abide by the action of the state body should the decision be unfavorable to them but Rev Fred G. Mitchell of Tol chaco, while opposing the measure saiJ he would not endeavor to appeal the matter should his opinion not be upheld. When the vote was taken it was found to be nearly unanimously in favor of the recommendation. Adjournment was then taken to the afternoon. ' The synod met at 2:.jn p. m. and im mediately began a discussion of the "every member" plan of beneficence. Messrs. Lay, Mitchell and Edgar pre sented facts with reference to the giv ing r.f Indiins upon their respective riel Is. Rev. William S. Marquis. D. I), of Chicago then presented the matter from the standpoint of the general of ficers of the- church having the propa ganda in charge. At four o'clock adjournment was taken until nine this morning. The social side of the meeting of the Arizona synod is not being neglected Ir. the afternoon, the Ladies' Synodical society tendered the members of the synod a reception at which Rev. William S. Marquiss, D. D. of Chicago spoke. At eight p. m. the Phoenix church gathered to do honor to the state organization of their denomina tion and listenerl to an address by Hon. Thos. R. Marshall, vice president of the United States delivered in his ,,ci witty an.l able maimer. He was intro duced by the moderator of the svnod Rev. II. p. Cory. iln i,i cuss m;i"te aj Wabash College, Indiana, who ex pressed the opinion that if the vice I resident continue,! to e-o this world he might some day hope to .......... t lIle oignity of the position now held by Mr. Corry. Mr. Marshall sai.i thnt if , .. eomplished anything worth while" this world, credit is due to his Scot ..esojtenan mother who made him learn the shorter catechism and to the ministerial professors of Wabash Col lege wh made impressions upon his head and heart which remained with him during his career. He adverted to the theological teachings and discus sions or his younger days Juld declared that the young people of the church are not indoctrinated as thev should be resulting in a feeling of being on easy terms with the Almighty even if the'v do not know nor serve Him. He urged that in the separation of church and state America has gone too far in some things and especially the care of the poor should be a function of the re ligions body rather than being a duty relegated to the cold, slow, operations of government. In conclusion he rec ommended to the clergy the preaching of the deity of Jesus Christ and de clared his own firm faith in regenera tion through the blood of Christ. The session this morning will be one of business, the reoort of tho r-hn,,. u Cook Bible school of Phoenix being set mi oearing at ten o clock. after a ten jear ban on the game. Co lumbia opens against St. Lawrence University. Conference Games CHICAGO. Oct. 22. Though there are four games in which the big nine teams oppose each other on tomorrow's1 football schedule, two contests outside the conference are likely to attract ns much attention in the central states. The two are the clash between Xebraska an,; Notre Dame, and the njinual meet ing of Michigan and the Michigan Ag gies. Topping the other conference games in interest is the Wisconsin- diio State game. . -ram v i?.'U4 ty:-hiA-f j'- , For your own protection see that you get Ghirardelli's Ground Chocolate superior to all others, the most economical food-beverage you can buy- because 1.
