THE ARIZONA KEPIJBLTCAN. FRIDAY MORNING, AUGUST 30, 1918 STATE ENGINEER IT I'ndcr rrgulations issued by the I'nitcd States Highways council, nil street and hiRhway construction in ev ery county, city and town in Arizona must bo first approved by State En gineer B. M. Atwood, and then sent for a final (). K. by the highway coun cil at Washington before contracts for the proposed work can be let. . "No manufacturer,'' the council's an nouncement reads, "will furnish any road btiildins material until the proj ect lias heen approved by the United Slates Highways council." The council is composed of repre sentatives of the departments of war and agriculture, railroad administra tion, war industries board,' and fuel administration. Plans for construc tion of any highway or street in the state must be submitted to Mr. At wood for approval if the work involves: the issuance of bonds; the use of rail or water transportation; the use of coal or oil as fuel; the use of cement, brick, asphalt, oil, tar, crushed stone, or steel, and also sand or gravel where shortages exist. Federal Agent I'nder the regulations, the state en gineer becomes in fact the federal gov ernment's representative in the state to put his approval or disapproval on proposed highway and street paving. This applies even to paving a city might wish to do. The state engineer is instructed to pass judgment on the merits of the proposed work alone, basing his opinion on the desirability of the work entirely upon the effect such work if allowed to proceed, would have on the prosecution of the war. First consideration will be given, In the main, according to Mr. Atwood, to maintainance of highways already constructed and regarded as essential higftways. Preference will be given to proposed road construction to four classes of roads, in the following or der: 1. Highways and streets of military value. 2. Highways and streets of national economic value. 3. Unfinished eontrteas that could not be disturbed without serious con sequences. 4. Highways and streets of such extreme local importance where con struction has progressed to such point where hardship would result unless finished. Counties, cities, or towns in Arizona that plan to build any highways or do any street paving must be prepared to furnish the state engineer with statements of requirements and costs 'not later than October 1. The state engineer, recognized by the federal government as the official head of state highway departments, will direct the. state highway program that will cover every county, city and town in the state. Approximate Estimate The purpose of this step is to make an approximate estimate of materials that will be required for road construc tion during the year 191. The federal government has furnished Mr. Atwood with blank forms which will be sent to all counties, cities and towns in the slate where road construction is con templated, or is now being done. These forms will be returned to the office if the state engineer, where they will be gone over in detail and passed upon by Mr. Atwood. They will then be passed on to the highways council with the recommendations made by the state ejiRincer, to be taken up for con sideration by the council. Some time ago. Mr. Atwood was re quested to furnish the council with an estimate of the amount of road work to be done by the state during the ccming year. It is thought that the program will be acted' favorablv upon by the council. This applies only to state hiRhway construction. Officials of cities, counties and towns are urged to get in touch with Mr. Atwood imme diately if they have any road construc tion in view. 0 i POINTED PARAGRAPHS In the hands of most people the pen is- more dangerous than the sword The lucky man is th9 plucky on" who sees and grasps an,' opportunity Look out for the ax a man has to Srmd when he begins to jolly you It is easier to make a dollar than it is to avoid arrest for counterfeiting 'ne great beauty of a flat is that the tenant has no use for a lawn mower The wise youth proposes in person and asks the father's consent by tele phone.

LILY ELLENBURG was found guilty by a jury in Jus tice Wheeler's court yesterday of conducting a disorderly house, but the jury attempted to soften its finding by recommending to the court "to be as knient as possible." ' There was a wide range in this recommendation, all the way from a suspended sentence up. The court complied only to a certain extent. He imposed a sentence of six months in the county jail and suspended it and then he named a fine of $300 to be paid in cash or served in the county Jail at the legal rate of one day for each dol lar. Mrs. Ellenburg said that she did not have $3n0 or any other sum and so, went to jail. The trial occupied all of the clay. The testimony was given by the neigh bors of Mrs. Ellenburg who said that El Reposo, the name which Mrs. Ellen burg had given her abode, was a scandal to the community. They had tried before to have the place broken up but it always appeared that Mrs. Ellenburg had received intimation of intended raids and evidence was lack ing when it was most needed. Chicken But about the middle of this month. Deputy Sheriff Nafziger, Deputy Sher iff O'Neil and other officers visited the place one morning about 1 o'clock. There was some little delay in getting in, but when they entered they found one man and woman who appeared to have risen hastily and another man and woman in state of negligee, pre tending to be eating a chicken. The testimony in the afternoon was enlivened by the appearance of John Wesley on the stand. John is a swift talker. He left little unsaid about the house; he said he had worked there NORTHS!

Another near robbery was committed early yes terday morning when the Charles Dal ton home was entered. The burglar was frightened away by Mrs. Dalton calling out to her husband. She had been awakened by the party entering her room. He was probably looking for Mr. Dalton's trousers as trousers seems to be the favorite picking of the party or parties who are doing this work here. The officers have made every effort and think they will locate their man soon. To Visit Here Mr. and Mrs. J. I'.

GLEIMDALE BURGLARS nine for a time and his feelings had heen scandalized. When Eddie: Goodwin who appeared for the defense, had fin ished his cross examination, John Wesley got into an altercation with him and concluded by delivering a speech to the jury, anticipating the remarks of Assistant County Attorney Jarrott. The gist of the testimony was that men and women came to El Reposo at all hours of the day. and night in all sorts of dress or little dress at all. No testimony was more damaging than given by the defendant herself. She said that she had catered more espec ially to the show trade; that many of the, people of Phoenix called there after theater suppers which are pre pared at all hours to suit the conven ience of her guests. Many of the show girls, she said, were frequent visitors and sometimes stayed all night because it was cooler there than in I'hoenix. Men and women and sometimes women and men alone came and stayed all night on account of the solitude. Grace Among the Famous Among her guests were Grace Lan dis, Mabel Shaw and others more or less known to fame. Anita Baker she was proud to number -among her lriends and frequent callers.

Justice Wheeler imposed a condition on the suspension, of the six months' sentence. That wart that 1J Reposo must remain closed. An attempt by Mrs. Ellenburg to re-open it would galvanize the jail sentence into ac tivity. Labor day will be celebrated by the Mexican people at East lake park, the Latin Protective League announced last night through its committee on entertainment. The committee said that the after noon would be set aside for picnics and that in the eveninir ihere wnuiri i.r. one of the West dances ever attempted by the Mexican people at the Eastiake I park dance pavilion, which wau nrctnrl ! by the Latin Protective League from its general fund. J. M. Malcndcz and P. G. De La Lama will be the floor managers for the evening's entertainment. The com mittee announces no expense will lie spared in arranging for the Labor Oay celebration, that the high standard of entertainment set by the league in the past will be maintained and that he league extends a cordial invitation to everybody to attend. O Labor Day is to be generally ob served by the business houses of the ity. ith the exception of grocery stores and meat markets, which are to be open for a part of the morning I hoemx will be closed for the day. The most important amusement ar ranged for the day is a celebration to be pulled off by the Phoenix Trades ( ouncil. The program is to begin up town with a parade at 11 o'clock, in which all the unionists and representa t.ves of state, county and citv govern ments have been invited to take part. It is expected that several of the locals will have floats in the line.

Races for Everyone Then, too, there is. to be races for everyone, and, of course, it would not bo complete without a fat man s race. Flag races, swimming races, fancy and high diving are only a few of the e ents planned. The Pioneer hand is to give a eon cert, beginning at 7 o'clock. Following this will be the speaking. Joseph Lord, speaker for the United States depart ment of labor, is on the program for the principal address. Word comes from Washington that it is the wish of the Federal government that both the employer and the employe hear Mr. Lord. Able Men 9a Speak The speaking program has been greatly augmented by the addition of Judge E. W. Lewis of this city, who readily consented to do his" part in making the national holiday a success. The judge, about a year ago, was ap pointed a Federal mediator by Secre tary of Labor Wilson' to handle the labor difficulties in the Jerome dis trict. He. accepted the appointment temporarily, or until Hywell Davies of the Department of Labor could take up the work. Although Mr. Lewis was in the district a short time he left a favorable impression with both the companies and the workers. To End In Fireworks The day's festivities will be con cluded with a grand exhibition of fire v.orks. Ray Brandon of Riverside says that the unionists have arranged one of the best programs ever pulled otf at the park, and says that he expects it to be enjoyed by the largest crowd in the history of the amusement resort.

HIWEOPLE PLAN H 1 PICNIC. DANCE ulETfOOl EVERY film 15 LABOR DAY SLOGAN: GEIlilE SURELY GOING IS ELK JR. The breaking down of German mor ale, so frequently mentioned in dis patches from the front during recent weeks, is strongly confirmed in .a let ter from Sims Ely Jr., to his mother, dated August 2. Mr. Ely has unique opportunities for ascertaining just how the German sol diers feel. Since early in January lie has been an adjutant at the field heau quartei s of the first armys corps. Sta tioned at first on the Lorraine ii I lhie corps was transferred some : hundred miles to the present battle front in June, preparatory to Marsha Foch's great counter offensive in Julv; and since the beginning of the Ju'lv battles it has been the dutv of Mr. Ely to leceive. at the battle "line, all the prisoners taken by the Americans and pass them back to wire corrals im mediately in the rear of the firing zone, whence they are distributed to prison camps. Thus he has necessarily heard the comments of great numbers of German?. Summarized, they are to the effect that while the German officers captured are still chopper in manner and proless confidence in ultimnto i,. 'or uurmany, mo private soldiers: are Minitormly dispirited and ex pros- sive of pleasure at being captured. Al- ! most without exception, they have lost j hope ( f a victory for Germany. It is not an uncommon thing, he writes, fori a s iuai of some dozens of Germans ! to surrender to a mere handful of Americans. While Mr. Roche. is noi to be despised fur like Fuzzy Wuzzy, "he is a first class fighting man" lie : appears at his worst when the light' is i runi.ing against him, whereas the j Americans, British and French have! done their most brilliant fighting when 1 the odds were against them. The j readiness of the kaiser's best soldiers to surrender is regarded as extremely. significant of the tact that Foch is gel tint: their goat. Mr. Ely's letter gives some interest ing details of battlefield conditions, lie mentions that one day, in the latter part of last month, when he was di recting the herding of a large contin gent hi prisoners into a corral, the Gorman airplanes swooped down to a low altitude, and. ignorant of the fact that this grouping of men was of Ger man prisners,.let go their bombs. Some 75 prisoners wvre thus killed, and -00 woun.led, by their own aviators. Jn the July battles the advance of the Americans was so rapid that there was no time to bury the German dead; consequently, the air was becoming most unpleasant, he said. Also, the. flies were an awful nuisance. The progress of the Americans made it neccss n y 'to move the field headquar ters each day. . As to morale, the Americans have it !o spare. They go into battle singing and skylarking. - AMUSEMENTS - Fall of a Nation "The Fall of a Nation," Thomas Dixon, appearing today and to morrow at the Plaza is doing mora than spread the propaganda of na tional defense; it actually contributed men to the forces on the Mexican bor der. "The Fall of a Nation" was shown for the first time in Los An geles on June l!t. 191t. Members of two California batteries were present as guests of Mr. Dixon, in appreciation ol their work during the filming of the battle scenes last winter. Before the end of tfee performance orders had been received from the w;r depart ment, transmitted h. Governor John son, and the batteries left the theater to entrain for the Mexican border where they helped defend the country against bandit invasion for many months. Several hundred men useii as super numeraries in the screen fighting quickly enlisted. Because of their ex perience in the battle scenes they were assigned to the first regiments that would go to the front. These men all received from "The Fall of a Nation" two months of actual military training with full pay. They worked under the direction of a retired army officer and for the entire time were members of a camp run on strict military prin ciples. When they were mustered out with full pay they had considerably more than a rudimentary knowledge of the science of war.
