A Mr. Sullivan, I labor union delegate, together with two : other men, met yesterday by appoint- ment with H. L- Chandler, manager of ! the South Side Gas and Electric com- pany and B. F. Carter, city clerk, and set forth a proposition to unionize the I employes of both the company and the j town. Carter for the city, and Chand ler for his company, discussed the ; question with the delegates, explained 1 to them the inapplicability to the small number of men employed, of the vari i ous minute divisions of each man's I labor, as demanded in the propositions ! set forth, and declared themselves as I opposed to the arbitrary rules as laid OPPOSE EFFORTS TO lli SOUTH SIDE down !y the delegates. Mr. Chandler, speaking further for ihe gas and elec tric company, declared that the com pany and its employes were hoth satis fied, the wages being such as could be afiorded and raised freely just as often as conditions permitted, and that it is the intention of the company to con tinue business along the same lines. in reply Sullivan stated that it was the intention to unionize the men so that they might have all that should be coming to them both in the way of independence of action and speech, and wages, and that the effort would be continued. The conference closed after the fo-egoing calmly put, yet positive statements of the part of all concerned. Discussing the matter later, Mr. Chandler stated that he had no ob jection to men protecting themselves by unions, and that the employes were entitled to every cent the company is able to pay, but that it is simply an impossibility to segregate the labors of the various men in a small company, so that no line of work would overlap the other, and that to attempt to do so would be to hire a lot of extra men who at times would have absolutely nothing in their special line to do. This would mean an overburdening of the overhead expense until it would prac tically force the company out of business. Commercial Club Meets Thursday The Mesa Commercial club will meet in the club rooms tomorrow night, when a number of matters will come before the body. A full attend ance is urged. Secretary Lush has just forwarded a letter to the postoffice department em-, bodying a resolution passed by the club, asking better rural free delivery service for the Mesa farmers. A peti tion will be circulated among the ranchers during the next few days, which also will be sent to the depart ment. This petition will ask for two carriers sinor the work is far too heavy for one. and prevents delivery of a portion of the rural mail before late in the afternoon. The secretary also is busy gathering, up sheaves of grain and sorting and arranging them into compact display sheaves for the state fair this fall. Aviation Recruiting Officers Here Sergeant I. Miller of Rockwell avia tion field and Corporal Fred A.

They consented to present the matter of a landing place in Mesa to Captain Appleby at Phoe nix, in an endeavor to get him to come to Mesa and look over the field. The citizens are anxiouD that at least a temnorarv landinc- fiul.i ha rn,.i.i.i in asmue'h a.s it is now impractical for any plane to attempt to land here. loiiouion prevented a visit last week from an army plane that flew over the town and intended to return anl make a landing next dav in case a suitable place could have been found. Hugh Stapley Passes Away At & o'clock yesterday morninsr at his residence in smith Mo!, n,,i. Stapley passed away after ' several mourns oi illness tollowing an attack of influenza in the winter. While he had been at work most of the time since the winter's illness, he had never been a well man and the constant ef forts of his brother, with whom he was associated in business, were unavailing to cause him to quit work and rest up. Mr. Stapley was the son of Mrs. M A. Stapley and a brother of O. S. and K. x. Stapley. He was 38 years of age and had lived in Mesa since he was but a year old. He was a member of the fjrm of R. X. Stapley and lirother A wife and four children are left to mourn the loss of a faithful and af fectionate husband and father. Mr Stapley was known here as a quiet hard-working, unassuming citizen, who always gave to his family and his work the very best that was in him. This attribute of his character won for him the respect and friendship of the en tire community. Funeral services will be held this afternoon at 3 o'clock The Woodmen of the World will furnish pallbearers. Extended Business Trip in Auto uy E.

FOR LOSS OF His right hand and part of his arm cut off while he was operating an en silage cutting machine, Leslie Meeks, 15 years of age, is asking for $25,000 damages from J. B. Cook, Warren Cook and John Doe Cook, who conduct a farm near Chandler, under the name of Cook Brothers. The suit went to trial before Judge Stanford yesterday afternoon, the ac tion having been brought by the boy's mother. Mrs. Lela Pruitt, his guardian ad litem. It was during the influenza epidemic that the boy went to work on the farm and claims that while feeding green feed into the machine his foot slipped, his arm and forearm being caught in the knives of the machinery. Warren Cook claims sole responsi bility, alleging that he employed the plaintiff to do "chores" and that he particularly warned him not to feed the cutter while standing on the fly wheel side. The plaintiff is represented by Cox, Moore and Gerard and the defendants by Armstrong, Lewis and Kraemer. o FLATS FOR POSSIBLE Xecessity for additional water storace facilities in snnnlv fotiiT-e. ter needs of the Salt River valley will result in the Water l"ers:.' nsocinlinn sending an engineering expedition to .torman f iats next week.

The quality is not regarded as exceptionally good this year either, last winter's frost leaving the crop in a rather weak con dition. Valencias are replacing lemons for juice drinks, to a small extent. Cali fornia jobbers are shipping approxi mately 160 cars per day at the present time. The general warm weather through out California has caused Cherries to ripen as much as two weeks earlier in some of the usually late districts. The present week is expected to be the banner cherry week of the season, with prices firm. California hot house celery is plenti ful on the market at this time.

Shortage of water in the Roosevelt reservoir has also demonstrated the necessity of in creasing water storage facilities. Morman Flats has been selected as the logical point for the construction of such a reservoir. There are hun dreds of mountain freshets that would contribute to such a reservoir during the rainy season of the year freshets above the flats and below the dam, it is stated. All this surplus water is wasted at this time. With the con struction of such a reservoir, engin eers of the association believe that all possibilities for a water shortage, even in a dry year, would be overcome. This reservoir, it is explained, would cover thousands of square acres; it would extend from Morman Flats to a Bhort distance above Cortilla flats, a dis tance of seven or eight miles. Inciden tally, this basin is used quite extensive ly tor grazing purposes at this time Construction of such a dam would not only destroy these grazing lands, but would HKewise obliterate the famed Apache trail between the points men tioned, necessitating a road over the mountains and at a higher level. Sev eral hundreds of thousands acre feet could be stored in such a reservoir, it is estimated by engineers. Surveying work in and near Mor man Flats will be thorough from every angle it is declared, and will give the association officials a fair estimate as to the cost of the projected improve ment. On the report of the engineering ex pedition will depend future steps of the association. If the improvement can be made at a 'Reasonable figure," the association will undoubtedly take steps at an early date to have the work started.

There is a word which is the open sesame to much of the happiness of married life, said Caroline French Benton, one which every young couple should learn by heart even before they get the marriage license and the ring. It is co-operation. Theoretically, every girl believes that the man should be the head of the home. She would not for the world deprive him of that dignity; and yet manya bride dos that very thing in perfect unconsciousness. Justbefore the wedding a girl usu ally goes to the man she is to marry to look over the little home they are to occupy and decide upon the arrange ments. ' Her mind rs fixed upon having it as convenient, as attractive and as homelike as ' possible, and, being a woman; she knows pretty well how to go to 'work ' to' get the results she wishes. So she says: "This is the living room of course,, and this room will be better for the dining room than the other, and this, of course, will be the guest room," and so on. And her prospective hus band follow-s her around and thinks, of course, that she must be right, even though he does not always agree with her in the depths o f his heart. But the girl who knows the value of co-operation takes a different first quality POMPEIAM OLIVE OIL "always fresh9" m From Grove to Can to You Incomparable Unexcelled Sold Everywhere course. Shesays to herself, "I really think it would be better to have this room for the guest room, but befote I say so I am going to ask ojhn nh:i he thinks. If he has his heart set o;. anything whatever, I am going to let, him have it." mi course, as no man unaer tne cir cumstances ever doe sinsist oti having his own way, she will probably get what she wants; but how lit -rentlyi the man will feel about it! " o FOOD PRICES IN POLAND Food prices in Poland are not exor-:; bitant, compared with the prevailing prices in the United States, according' to a recent report of the bureau of' markets. The oPlish housewife pays, only 40 cents a pound for pork leg, V:-: cents for ham and back, S6 cents for; bacon and lard, and 96 cents for chops; and loin, while the pork costs the: butcher 64 cents. . Thenew maximum prices on floui and bread, which went into effect on February 3, call for a retail price of about 7 cents for wheat and rye flour, with the wholesale price $6.36 for 110 pounds of rye flour and J6.70 for 110 pounds of wheat flour. Bakers then isell their 1-pound loaves of whole meal bread at 6 cents and 2 -pound loaves of rye bread at 13 cents. o Use The Republican Classified Pages for results read for profit.
