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.
One grain of radium will so fer

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.

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.

ceedingly proficient in serial football.

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. .
