THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN, FRIDAY MORNING, JULY 18, 1919
PAGE SEVEN" FREE A Map of the New Europe We believe that it is the best map of Europe in the world today. We believe this because It was compiled by those men of the United States Geological Survey who are the otfldal map makers of the government, because they were assisted in the task by President Wilson's experts who have just returned from the Peace Conference. The map is printed in nine colon which, show the Allied territory, enemy territory, neutral territory, territory that has changed hands, territory out of which new nations have been built, territory subject to plebiscite, territory of undetermined nationality. It la a graphic picture of the results of four years of fighting, a picture so painted as to make the results most easily understood. This map was specially made for the Washington Information Bureau of this paper in collaboration with the Savings Division of the Treas ury Department. When it is sent out it is accompanied by a bulletin entitled HOW OTHER PEOPLE GET AHEAD, laying down a working plan tor saving for any man of any salary, a plan which leads toward the goal of prosperity.

At the hour mentioned tha Chinaman had closed his store and was in the rear room cooking his supper. Hearing a knock at the front door, he opened it and admitted two Mexicans who said they wanted a dimes' worth of candy. As Ju Sing was getting out thp sandy he noticed the men pulling pistols from their pockets. He mad" a histy dash for the door and once outside gave a lusty yell of alarm which brought to his assistance several Mexican men who live in that vicinity. The would be holdup men made their escape with out securing any booty. Some of the MeTicans present claimed that they recognized the thieves. .

McMannon, land dealer, and S. J. Kin ney, newspaper artist, saw queer things while coming back from Phoenix the other night at some hour unnamed. They insist that they came upon a Ford driven by several perfectly sober young men and that said Ford was running on three wheels while the rear axle was dragging the pavement. The attention of the occupants of the Ford was directed to the condition of af fairs and the latter upon examination found Said wheel gone, but averred that it was on the Henry when they left Phoenix. After a search of several minutes, the missing member was lo cated some distance back. Upon an expression of doubt being voiced by the reporter, the aforesaid oil man. land man and art man called in Donald McQueen who also was with the party and who vouched for the truth of the statement. Whereupon, because of Donald's well known reputation for truth and veracity, this article is pub lished but not guaranteed. 01 COAST OFFERED With preparations practically com plete and actual construction soon to start on the b:g new Goodyear plant at Los Angeles which will use quanti ties of Arizona cotton in its products, announcement was received here yes terday of the informal offering on toe market of 8, 00.000 in cumulative pre ferred stock of the Goodyear Tire and Rubber company of California. The stock is "to he of the seven per cent rate and is being handled by Cyrus Pierce and company of the insurance exchange, San Francisco and the Cit izen's National Bank building, Los Angeles. The proceeds of the sale of this stock will be used to erect a plant for the newly formed Goodyear Tire and Rub ber company of California in the city of Los Angeles. The necessity fortius new plant has arisen through the in ability of the parent company, the Goodyear Tire and Rubber company of Akron, Ohio, to keep pace with the ever-growing demand for Goodyear products in the far west. The new plant will take over all the Goodyear business on the Pacific slope and the Mountain slopes. Until the plant is in a condition to supply the demand, the Akron company will turn over the necessary goods to the new company. On the basis of last year's sales, which amounted to more than $13,000, 000 in the territory to be covered by the new company, it is estimated that there will be a net profit over three times the amount necessary to pay the dividends on this issue of preferred stock. The profit will result solely from the distribution of Goodyear pro ducts procured from the Akron plant. When the California plant is completed there will be added to this the manu facturing profit which now goes to the Akron company. o It makes no difference what your wants may be, you can have them sup plied by using and reading The Republ ican Classified Pages. o SVHITE IS REIGNING SHADE THIS SUMMEB "With the showing that was made, I do not believe the interstate commerce commission will be able to put into effect the proposed increased rates for icing Arizona products." said F. A. Jones of the Arizona corporation com mission, upon his return yesterday from the hearing in Los Angeles be fore C. B. Marshall, attorney and ex aminer for the interstate board. '"This hearing," continued Mr. Jones, "was the first of a series of hearings to be held all over the country by the commission to determine the advisa bility of putting into effect increased icing tariffs all over the country. The railroad administration was represent e by experts of all sorts, and by at torneys; California was represented by delegates from the citrus league, the vegetable growers' union, the meat in dustry, and others, and there were) representatives present from most of j the intermountain states. I represent-1 ed Arizona for the corporation com mission and in behalf of the growers of perishable products in this state. "My contention was not that Arizona objected to paying whatever rate was just, cost considered, hut that we do object to paying discriminatory rates. I developed from the witnesses, on cross examination, and by my own testimony, that it takes two more icings for most California products than for those grown in this stat, and contended that there was no jus tice in equality of rates." Later on Mr. Jones proposes to file a brief along the same lines, pointing out that mileage, time, and the number of icings should be determining fac tors in setting equitable rates.

The reason for this action by the land board, which by virtue of the pro visions of the state soldier settlement act is also the soldier settlement board, is that there is very small likelihood of any money being needed for this pur pose this year, as the national soldier settlement act has not been passed bv congress, and If it does pass it will take some time to get the administrative machinery in motion, and the state funds will not be needed until there is need of co-operation, as the bill was passed for the purpose of co-operating with the federal government in this matter. Another reason is that the bill car ries an open, or blanket, appropriation and a special levy would not be nec essary for the preliminary expenses, as they may be paid out of the general fund. There has been much concern in cer tain quarters as to the large expense to the state that this act might entail, which was later set at rest bv the statement by Governor Thomas E Campbell that if the bill passed with the J500.000.000 appropriation with which it, was introduced, the share of Arizona would be only $10,000,000. TAKES UP BILLBOARD FIGHT 'l fete?- ' JW This summer white is ahead oi everything, both for morning weal nd for dressier occasions. On makes no mistake if the entire ward robe for summer includes only white things. This white georgette has a particular appeal for afternoon wear. Buttons and handwork form the only trimming. (New York Herald) Opening a fight on billboards in city streets ana avenues, the National As sociation ot Real Estate Boards, in convention at Atlantic City, places its interested strength behind a public seruimeni wnicn nas been able already in a numDer or ciwes to effect whole some reforms in the indicated direc tion. Washington has abolished bill boards. Chicago regulates them by a principle of majority consent. In Bos ton a charter provision is directed against them. New Tork has experienced several anti-billboard agitations without vis ible effect. Broadway still suffers visitations of ugly boardings. Along Riverside Drive choice beauty spots of sloping lawn are spread before back grounds of unsightly advertising ris ing to levels of second story window tops. Such obtrusive structures of fend the intelligent eye. The men at Atlantic City find that they also can affect seriously the values of real esta'te and of bonds issued to cover investments in parks, parkways and boulevards. For the billboards there is no plea of public necessity. They are institu tions purely of private profit. No ranking for general convenience is to be accorded to them. They lack the qualities of fantastic display and the virtue of assisting materially in the illumination of a great city which has disarmed esthetic critics of the elec tric night advertising signs along shop ping fronts and skylines. Billboards in cities are indeed the unbecoming products of a special in dulgence. When that indulgence is withdrawn by urban authority, it may be found practicable to clean up the landscape along rural drives and cross-country railway lines.
