MARICOPA FIRST II AGR I CULTU R E In the latest valuation assessments Maricopa cotintv ranked fourth with a valuation of $97,367,007.1 J. This ranks Maricopa county first of the agricultural counties, as the. three counties ranking higher are the min ing counties of Gila. Cochise and Ya apai. of course these great mining counties with their vast mineral re sources and extensive workings could hardly help ranking higher than an agricultural county, of these Cochise received a valuation of $16!), 348, 468.17: ;ila. $163,647,782.48 and Yavapai, $130, :.7."i.3S1.6;'. In the course of her development Maricopa county has been somewhat dependent upon the mining counties because of their proximity and the great distance separating her from other agricultural counties. From the mining counties Maricopa county has drawn the bulk of the money used in her development, and important rela tions in trade are still maintained. The remaining six agricultural coun ties, excepting Maricopa, do not ag gregate the total valuation of the lat ter county, alone, their entire valuation being onlv $xi. 606.174. 74 of the state's total of JS34.02O.532.22. Four 'smaller mining counties carry a valuation of about $12,000,000 in excess of the tot,al of the agricultural cctintics. With the exception of the mining counties. Maricopa county emplovs more men in more diversified ways j than all the other counties of the state j combined. Furthermore indications are that demands for labor will in- crease in Maricopa county, if past ex- ! pericace is to be at all credited. i BEN ESTES HOME j P.en I".

P. Leased Wire WASHINGTON, Aug. 17. The threatened crisis in the relations of Mexico with the entente allies and the United States apparently has been averted by a modification of the new Mexican oil tax decree by President Carranza. It was learned today that on Aug. 12 Carranza in effect cancelled pro visions or me decree 01 juiy 31 under which undeveloped oil lands might be seized by the Mexican government upon failure of their owners to make declarations and submit to what they regarded as excessive taxation. The decree of July "1 was an amend ment of one issued last February which had given serious concern to the officers of the British and Ameri can navies because of its Interference with the supplies of crude oils upon which their battleships and destroyers ; were dependent. In addition to representations through diplomatic channels from Washington and London, the Ameri can oil producers in Mexico appointed a committee to confer with the Mexi can government to seek an equitable adjustment of the points at issue. They were willing to pay any reasonable in crease in the rate of tax but feared that the new decree would put them out of business and amount to virtual confiscation of their properties. The modification now made hardly will be wholly satisfactory but it was said today that it appears to make concessions paving the way for clear ing: up the situation.

The total assesed valuation of the county- is $97,367,007.13. That gives this county, formerly the first, the fourth place among the larger coun ties. Cochise leads with a valuation of $19.348,486.17. Gila comes second with Sn 63.647.782.48 and Yavapai third, with $130,573,381.62.
