ELECTRIC GO. AND CITY
MESA, June 10. 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

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.

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

ladies of St. Marks church to the' gen

honor of Rev. Francis Bloy and his
estimable wife, who are here on a
brief visit. Mr. Bloy formerly was the
minister of St. Marks, and his people
aided by a large number of outside men
and women, have never ceased striving
to have him back. He has been with
the church at Cxlobe since leaving
Mesa, but much to the delight of his
former congregation, will take up the
Mesa work again, early in September.

the various churches and those of no

Convenience, comfort and economy
mental in bringing the project to a
head 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

FITTING THE NEW HOME
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
Justbefore the wedding a girl usu
ally goes to the man she is to marry to
look over the little home they are to

homelike as ' possible, and, being a
woman; she knows pretty well how to
go to 'work ' to' get the results she
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

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.
