Nought shall make us rue, If England to itself do rest but true. William Shakespeare. Purchasing Committees The senate investigat.on of the operation of the supplies committee for the purchase of war sup plies discloses that the handling of the money for which the people are being taxed should be left to wholly disinterested men, if such men and at the same time, capable men, can be found. But there Is the difficulty. It appears that some of the mem bers of the supplies committee have taken advantage of the position in which they had been placed, to favor concerns with which they were connected. In one case p. member of the committee rejected a good offer by a competitor of a concern in which he him self was a member. However, these instances of the exercise of self-interest, disclosed by the investigation so far have been very few and evidence has not shown to date that the government has been defrauded. What may yet come out we do not know. The testi mony so far, has consisted mostly of statements and admissions by the members of the committee. They have not yet admitted facts that would constitute a scandal. The thing to which the greatest objection has been raised in the investigation is the secrecy which has been thrown about the intention of the government to award contracts for supplies. That has been de fended by the witness-members of the supplies com mittee on the ground that it is necessary to keep secret the fact that the government is going to ask for bid for large quantities of supplies. Otherwise the market would be flushed and fly away. To the average man that is not a satisfying de fense. There must be some better way of protecting the government against extortion than by these gum shoe methods which lend themselves so easily to the plundering of the government in the dark. Instead of promoting a rising market, we think that an an nouncement that the government would be in the market shortly would provoke competition. It is a pretty well-known fact that the government is going to need all these things, and that knowledge itself would have the effect of bringing put reasonable bids. A supplies committee, Constituted as this one is supposed to be, of men familiar with the quality and prices of the goods they are, to buy, is an ideal or ganization provided its members are patriotic enough to place the government's before their own interest. An official body, such as is proposed by Senator McKellar's plan to supplant the civilian advisory com mittees by a council having an official character would likely result In a body of disinterested men but men without capacity for the work. We have seen to what an extent the public money has been wasted by of ficial bodies, composed of men inexperienced in the purchase of all kinds of supplies, at all periods, for the government. Senator Aldr'.oh once remarked, and no one has yet disputed his statement, that one-third of the public appropriations was regularly wasted through our careless public methods. Thus, it is not an easy matter to remedy the de fects that the senate committee investigation is dis closing. If the business is taken out of the hands ot the civilian committee composed of businessmen and put into the hands of a bureau or department com posed of the friends of politicians, we are not likely to save either time or money. Land Prices The sale of a Salt River valley ranch at an ad vance of $30,000, a gain of sixty per cent over the prtre paid for It two years ago is worth considering by those who are halting between two opinions regard ing Investments in this valley. Two things have come to pass within the last two years to give valley lands a new level of values the development of the long staple cotton Industry and the higher prices of alfalfa. That the cotton Industry is permanent and will always be profitable there cannot be the slightest doubt. Though the prices now received for valley cotton may not always obtain, no one doubts that prices will al- ways be available that will make the raising of cotton here exceedingly profitable. It is not likely either that the old prices of alfalfa will ever return. It is very unlikely that so great an acreage of alfalfa will ever be raised in the valley as in past years. Another thing to be considered is that the highest price paid for land in this valley is a very small price in comparison with the price of similar acreage in southern California. We believe that we have a long . way to go yet in the matter of land prices in the Salt River valley. We have been going for some time, at times rather Irregularly and at times we may have appeared to be traveling too fast, when there was nothing in sight to Justify our seeming excess of speed. But those -who held on have profited and they will profit still more. The fundamental thing that gives permanent strength to gait River valley values is the fact that ' Salt River valley lands,- intelligently handled and in tensively fanned, show a net productive return which paya a good deal more than good Interest on present valier, and after all the real value of land is based on' the value of its net product per year. This is a test which few countries can stand but which can be ap- i plied to Salt River valley lands with most satisfactory results. The Thrift Campaign The war savings campaign whicB Is now in prog ress is different in an important respect from the Red Cross and Liberty Loan drives. Its success depends upon the steadiness of work throughout the campaign and a failure of steadiness cannot be made good in an eleventh hour spurt. It appeared not only in Arizona but all over the country that both the Liberty Loan campaigns and the Red Cross drives would be failures so far as they were intended to be popular expressions. Subscriptions in the beginning were slow. There was little evidence of enthusiasm anywhere. Yet in the closing days there came outpourings both of money and enthusiasm, which carried subscriptions, espe cially In this state far beyond the quotas which had been assigned. But such a thing as that could not happen in the thrift campaign which must depend for its success upon necessarily small contributions, made every day, every hour, every minute. They come in a stream which must be constant because it cannot at the last moment or at any time be turned into a deluge. It cannot be allowed to stop or even to trickle. It must flow, regular and strong. The purchases of thrift stamps and certificates are said to be running in this state at about $,000 a day. That is not quite fast enough. We will have to open the faucet a little more to get a bigger flow. There can be no sudden outburst to bring up the aver age of purchases, giving at the close the aggregate that has been assigned to this district. Self-interest should move us to do better than we have been doing. The money with which we would buy certificates or stamps is money which would not likely be otherwise saved. It is "chicken-feed" and "chicken-feed" does not usually find its way into sav ing accounts. It does not become a part of the coun try's accumulated capital. In thrift stamps it becomes a saving and a part of an accumulation of savings which, besides, draws interest and works for the holder o'f the stamps or certificates. Moreover, it does important work for the government. Germany and Russia It is too early yet to rejoice or take even a mod erate degree of comfort in the news of a hitch in the Teutonic and Russian peace negotiations. We cannot be sure yet that the hitch has not been staged. It is yet to be shown that Germany was in earnest in mak ing its absurd demand to be left in possession of the conquered Russian provinces and that the Bolshevikl government is in earnest in rejecting those demands. The ways of both governments are sinuous and sin ister. One thing may be accepted and that is that if Germany is in earnest and will insist upon the posses sion of those parts of Russia now occupied by its ar mies, that country feels pretty sure of the outcome of the war, or it would not risk a break with the Bol sheviki. Germany cannot be sure of that; it must be known there that its only chance to win the war or even to make it a drawn war lies in freedom of at tack from the east. Germany must be free to throw all its strength against the British, the French, the Americans and the Italians. It may be suspected that the Bolshevikl govern ment does not want to cut loose at once from the allies and from America. A little encouragement such as would be held out in an apparent break ia the peace negotiations would revive allied interest and hope, and might be productive of renewed financial assistance. This suspicion might be extended to in clude even German designs in the hitch. It would suit Germany if a part of the resources of the allies could be diverted to Russia where in the opinion of Germany, they would be wasted so far as concerns the allies, and might ultimately find their way into the service of Germany. At the best the situation in Russia is too obscure to afford ground yet for hope that anything good can come out of that stricken country. The gourmets of Great Britain must think Lord Rhondda the British food controller a joker of poor taste when he tells them that the situation is not to cause alarm; that it means only the tightening or tak ing up of the belt a little more. Nothing can be a greater calamity to the man who lives to eat, than this less ening of the circumference of the belt. SHE KNEW WHAT TO TAKE Five-year-old Mary, who is always anxious to be in everything that goes on, lives in a small town where the long-suffering minister still endures donation parties, to make up his back salary. Just before the last one she begged eagerly: "Can't I take something, too, muvver?" "No; if your father and I take something that will be plenty." But the child could not bear to give up the idea, so she ransacked the whole house for something suitable. Finally she appeared before her mother with a worn and faded dress of her own. "Please, muvver, can't I take this? See, it's not a speck of good for, anything she uifcred. The Christian Herald. WAR-SLOGANS Can the Kaiser! Tin the Teut! Pickle the Prussian! Brine the Brute!

Building operations within the limits of the city of Phoenix during 1917 represented a net valuation, as indicated by permits issued, of J713, 28.12, or very close to three-quar ters of a million dollars. This is more than three times the valuatiou of the buildings erected in Phoenix In 1916, more than twice the valu ation of those erected in 1915 and within $55,000 of the valuation of those erected in 1914, one of the most phenomenal year sin the history of Phoei.lx. If it were possible to secure ac curate figures representing the valu ation of the buildings erected jus outside the city limits proper and which are really as much a part of the city as though located within the imaginary boundry lines, the valu ation for the year just closed would be considerably it; excess of Jl, 000.000. A short trip around the out skirts of Phoenix would convince even the most skeptical of the truth of the statement that there is al most unprecedented building now in progress, and that despite the high cost of materials artd labor, there is o indication of a diminishing in the near future. A glance at the annual report of Building Inspector Herbert J. Mam.', made public yesterday, will reveal many interesting facts. It indi cates that during 1917 there ' were 107 new residences erected in the city of Phoenix at a valuation of $220,810.37. There were also 53 busli.ess building permits issued rep resenting a valuation of $41o,S9t. In all 374 permits were issued from the office of the building inspector, some of which were for hospital? churches, schools, sundry structures and alterations and repairs. The month of March was the rec ord month for the year, when the permits represented a valuation of $137,795.50, with July a close second at $133,906. The lowest valuation for a single month came in Sep tember, when the total amounted only to $17,725. In 1916 the total number of per mits issued was 201, 29 of these be ing for business buildings at.d 41 for residences. The total valuation represented by the permits that year was $244,772.50. For 1915 the total number of permits issued was 29S 30 of which were for business houses and 76 for residences. In 1914 the total valuations of the 627 permits issued was $767,521.20 of which 297 were for residences aiid 72 for busi ness houses.

Paris was besieged and there began j the four-month investment with furi ous fighting on both sides. Again Jack Frost came to the aid of the Germans. A long spell of intense cold made life almost impossible foi the half-starved French, while the Germans, who had the whole country to draw on, besides their own ex cellent commissariat, suffered very little. By January the city was in such a terrible condition that it sur rendered. The date of the biff war between Turkey and Russia was 1877, when the Turks were attacked by an enor mously superior force of Russians with the czar in command. Osman Pash, with 40,0u0 men, hurried in land to Plevna, a village which stood upon a hill, and there hastily en trenched himself. The Russians had 100,000 men, but Osman and his dauntless band defeated them in four successive battles. In November winter set in three weeks earlier than usual. The Turks had no winter clothing and little to eat other than maize porridge and horseflesh. They suffered fearfully At last, on December 9, they deter mined to break out. There were only 30,000 left, but their rush was so tre mendous that they carried three lines of Russian trenches before they were surrounded and forced to surrender unconditionally. GERMANS WAGING BUTTERFLIES WAR JACK FROST PLAYS BIG PART IN WARS There has never been a Enrononn war on a big scale in which old Jack Frost has not participated. The year 1812- saw the conception or Napoleon's scheme to invade Rus sia. Before inaugurating his' plans .10 o coxeiui 10 inquire of the ex perts at what date winter usually began in southern Russia. They told him the middle of December. It was on June 24 that he'invaded Russia with 600,000 men, and he reached Moscow September 14. That night fire broke out and within five aays me city was burned to th' ground. Even then he remained until October before beginning to retreat. In the last week of October bes-tn the worst frost which Europe had known for three generations. Tr, Tlfemes froze from its source to the sea. The Seine, the Rhine and the Danube were all ice-bound. On the Aoriatic, orr emce, was seen the amazing sight of floating, ice. The Hellespont and the Dardanelles wert frozen. Jack Frost's icy fingers lay heavy even upon North Africa. Drift appeared in the Nile, and there were snowstorms in Tripoli and Morocco. isapoleons huge army was almw! wiped out. Four hundred thousand men perished. They froze to death in oatianons as they bivouacked. ?.nd when at last, on December fi. Na poleon reached German soil, there remained of his army but 130.000 men. During the winter of 1853-1854 the Turks were battling along the Danube against hordes of Russians. In the following September 25,000 British troops, a similar number of French. and 8,000 Turks were landed in the Crimea. Again came a terrible winter .mi from the west of Ireland right across into Asia frost fell heavy uj.on land and sea. In London it froze for six weeks without a break. From Janu ary 14 to February 24 the thermome ter was below freezing every night. In the Crimea the cold was fearful, and the British army lost 20,056 men, and of these only 12 per cent fell n. battle. The rest were destroyl by cold and disease. In 1870 came the biggest war of the latter half of the century, the titanic conflict between France and Ger many. By October 29 there were 0,000 German troops in France. fPhiladelphia Ledger) THE HAGUE, Netherlands, Dec. 2i Butterfly catching has been convert ed from a schoolboy's amusement into a serious business at Soligen and Dus seldorf. in western Germany.
