THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN. THURSDAY MORNING, JUNE 17, 1920 24 SHIPPING FACTS TO BE CHANGED BY NEW MAR ITIM C T . Republican A. P. Leased Wire WASHINGTON-. June 16. Study of the new shipping act anJ of the vari ous commercial treaties which undrr its provisions must be amended or ab rogatjed has been started by the state lepartment. It was learned today from officials acquainted with American :ommercial treaties that approximate ly 24 of the pacts will have to be de nounced in whole or in part -within the next'few months, if the president fol lows the directions of section "4 of the new act. So far no formal protests have been lodged -with the department against the act, though Premier Lloyd George of Great Britain has stated that rep resentations on the subject would be made. Complete reversal of the policy of free reciprocal treatment of foreign shipping, which has prevailed in the United States since President Madi son's administration, is said by of ficials to be involved in a strict ap plication of the new law which, in th'e section iiientioned. authorizes the im posiiion of discriminatory tonnage dues on foreign vessels entering; Amer ican ports. Extensive subsidies granted to th-ir own shipping by other powers have been held by the advocates of the act to justify some such protective measure of the United States. Though Great Britain, as a leading maritime power, is regarded as the one most vitally affected by the new law, in British circles it is believed that the strongest representations and pro tests will come from other quarters. This reasoning is founded upon the fact that under their free trade sys tem the British are not able to offer an equivalent concession to America, having already given away freely all that she could offer. file in the direction of the railroad station.

Peters is being sought by camp authorities, suspected of having some knowlelge of the killing1 of Mrs. L. 11. Moss, wife of Captain Moss, who died early this morning after having been shot in the back of the head wnile rid ing in the rear seat of an automobile with her husband and friends in the vicinity of Camp Grant hist night. No motive for the crime can be ad vanced. Peters is one of five prisoners who escaped Tuesday afternoon while working on the camp agricultural farm and is said to have threatened to get even with Captain Moss, his com mander, for having made charges against him at three courts martial. Chicago authorities have been sup plied with the names and descriptions of the missing prisoners, as it is be lieved the men are now in hiding in that city, having escaped on a freight train. Sheriff Harry Baldwin and Camp Intelligence Officer Robert B. Howie recovered a car stolen from Davis Junction Tuesday night at Kirkland late this afternoon. A woman told the authorities of having1 seen three sol diers abandon the car about 3 o'clock Wednesday morning and start single to t For the Sweet Girl Graduate, the gift of a good piano will- enhance her education with a charm that is the most delightful of feminine accomplishments.

June 10 Declaring unconstitutional the lesolution providing for a six-day week for hotel clerks, presented by the Pacific Coast delegation to the con vention of the Greeters of America, now in session here. President Leonard Hicks of Chicago prevented the pro posal from going to a vote on the con vention floor. 1'pon the refusal of the president to consider the proposal, tumult broke loose among the dele gates, fully 30 minutes being required to restore order, after which adjourn ment was taken. Almost the entire session tonight hinged around a proposal to make the secretaryship a position on a straight salary basis. As such it was offered to Leigh Fuller, veteran hotel clerk of Los Angeles and a. candidate for presi dent. With his acceptance and elimina tion from the race for president, the contest has narrowed down between II. K. Gould of Newport, N. II., E. A. Stalling of Oklahoma City, and George Worthington of llarrisburg, Pa. Claims Business Suffers By Lack Of Rail Capacity WASHINGTON. June 16 National business is being ''pared down" through embargoes and priorities to fit the ca pacity of the country's railroads, George H. Cushing. managing director of the American Wholesale Coal as sociation, declared today in an ad dress before the City club of Wash ington. Mr. Cushing, who is shippers' representative on the local terminal committee appointed by the interstate commerce commission, said his "r marks should not be construed as a criticism of the agencies now working to overcome freight congestion. Mr. Cushing said coal production since April 1 has Increased on an aver age of 855,800 'tons per week over last year, giving a total Increase In that period of 7,700,000,000 tons. "Last year, with a smaller produc tion, we accumulated sufficient stor age to help tide us over the worst Win ers' strike in history," he continued. "Running ahead now of last year's pro duction, I cannot believe the current statements that we are running head long into a dreadful shortage of coal." That the Florence district has a bumper grain crop this year was the statement yesterday of Judge O. J. Baughn of Florence. Judge Baughn has been in Phoenix for the past two days presiding in superior court for Judge P.. C. Stanford. "Six or seven combined threshers have been shipped into the Florence valley tins year." said Judge Baughn. "but they have been insufficient to care for the crop. The Florence dis trict has about 5000 acres in ' Pima cotton. There is about the same amount in the Casa Grande district. Rabbits have appeared in the heart of the valley and are ravaging the cotton." That Florence is at present one of the fastest growing towns in the south west was declared by Judge Baughn to be a fact apparent to anyone who visits that town. A new hotel is about to be built, a Masonic temple-and nu merous fine residences. Improvements in progress and in contemplation ag- gtegate a million dollars. The laet j .Uatement of the two Florence banks! showed a total of more than j:, 000,(00 in resources. Sia-'e last December the improvements in Florence have totaled from l-C.O.OOO to $300,000. The new elec tric light and water plant buiH h.st October abi'-adv has been tounrt in adequate. :l m.ist be- enlarge:! at j once. " , ! Many Florence! and Casa Grande j people are summering in Pinal county, in the Catalina mountains. The state j land department threw open a half section at Orac'e in tracts of f rom j half an acre to two acres. This was j sold at auction recently and many) Florence and Casa Grande people j bought. They plan a community club- '; house and ample water supply and a j recreation field. Oracle is 4S00 feet hi ; altitude. It isa fine summer resort . j about ."2 miles from Florence. : With the 10,000 or 12.000 around Florence coming ing plants and ';he 17.000 under the diversion dam acres will be irrigated trict before long. In the Casa Grande , district there is a very large acreasre ! beina: developed by pumping, in addi- i tion to the f."0) acres to be tinder the diversion dam. "The supreme need of the Casa : Grande district; now is a big central power station, and the reed is so acute ; that unless some company gets busy ; at once the chances are that a local", corporation will be formed to build a central power station to distribute power all over the Casa Grande and Santa Cruz valleys. With reasonably cheap power that whole country can be developed from Picacho to Mari-t-cpa by pumping plants." Judge Baugn is chairman of the San Carlos association. This association, he says, is very hopeful of the outlook for the early building of the San Carlos dam. "We have solicited strong support and endorsement of many organizations and branches of the government, as well as "commti nit.es that heretofore have been rather lukewarm. The committee as a whole fee's certain that in a few years the San Carlos dam will be under construction." THE HIGHWAY TRAILER ton to six ton. OVERLAND ARIZ.
