MONDAY MORNING, AUGUST 16. 1920 Ph 1 There is ; nothing costs less . than civility. Cervantes. f ' 1 Why Not Get Down to Bra Taek? We'think that a party or a candidate who would announce some ' specif ic plan " for ' reducing the nigh cost of living and for dealing with profiteers and others who are disturbing natural economic currents, would win the coming national election. The people are pretty'well fed up on unsubstantial things. There is no vital interest in any of them. Outside of poli ticians and theorists there is" no, real popular interest in'the Leagtieof Nations "and few of the people out side those classes have ever-been interested in it."' " It might become" a very essential issue if there was nV more material-one. People, a' part of whom are republicans and' a part" of whom democrats, could be divided ordinarily upon any issue which the leaders of, one party or the other might , introduce even ttough it" was nothing ' more substantial than that sbisra " wtiicti set' the Blg-Endians and the Little Endians by the ears. - But, we have .other troubles now very definite and intimate, so that we do not care much for the theo- , re and purely . partisan ..issues. The high, cost , of living affects u all alike, republicans and democrats. A' first though we groaned-under It we accepted' it as the result of the natural operation of economic laws. TJiere were apparent; reasonable causes,' the neces sary inflation of -our currency, the great destruction of property in tbe war. the diversion' of. the produc ing power of many millions from the production of commodities. we use in time or peace, to the. produc tion of commodities, useful only to armies at war. All these things easily accounted for' higher prices and ' we. were reconciled. " .' . ; Mostof us did not believe.that it, was within the power of the government to af ford, relief ; on 'the con trary we remembered thatwhen ever the government had intervened in economic ana industrial matters n had generally,. only made them .worse. ,We, could see no other outlet except such as' tirtie would lead us to. Bat 'since' then, we; have, seent something else., We hare seen powerful corporation . purposely haltjng production in order to, maintain prices We have seen such a vast accumulation -of wealth -in the hands, of men producing or handling " the things that, people buyas was never witnessed' before.. And -all -of us ha,ve" 'come 'to believe that "if "unofficial groups of "men lik .the Amrican , Woolen company, the Sugar Trust anil other, combinations in, a; position to control var ioa commodities control, them, to- the disadvantage of tbi public, a government - which cannot loosen that control is not the. kind of, government we want. ; A government which cannot, protect its members against the aggressions of outside governments'! is not daserving of - existence; much less to is one which cannot protect the, great public againt the "rich, and powerful few of its own. members: . ' Something "is fundamentally wrong with a society in 1 which groups or powerful, individuals can prey without restraint upon the great maes of the people. t All this can be changed by-law and the people-are faijr more interested , in having' it' changed ' than they ar in anything else. 'The brotherhood , of man is no doubt a very fine and beautiful' thing ;we should all . like to see it, but we 'would rather, .for. the moment, that the people who think they are powerful enough to fasten the completion of such a "task would perform 'the far easier one of making the prof iteers let go of us ! We know that, we ought to be uplifted but the uplifting can await a more convenient season. t It is an very wen iu im uui i-. bu we should first have peace at' home'and we haye not peace. Labor ad capital are at. war, fierce war. Monopolists and lanllords look upon .consumers and tenants as their , proper prey. " Consumers and ten ants naturally regard monopolists and landlords" with fierce and growing hatred. , , ' Now what do the two parties propose to do" about it?. The party. that can make a' satisfactory, not ' a genefal. reply to this questjoni whatever may be its position with respect to the tariff.. the League of Na tions or prohibition, will be given by the people the next four years to make 'good. I There is a. way to make good. . It : may involve oroe new and drastic' legislation, even revolutionary legislation. : It-may even be necessary-to change, our coistituUon., But all this will have to be, done some time. , The present, situation is one which .will never, w ork itself out. - If we let it run its course it will run info bdlsherism.: .; . '..' " Vn4Aid to City Planning ' s . A 'few weeks ago the subject to city planning was . tagen up Py tne cKX commission and we suppose when tne: vacation season is over and the weather becomes m$re reasonable' it will be pursued toward some con clusion in the 4 meantime there has been an im portant development in the east which. will make'the work Vasier and more comprehensive, if -Phoenix de aires to make use of the power which has been con firmed by the establishment of the validity of zoning legislation. '" ' " ' . .The first zoning law of wide grasp was adopted bv New York .city four years ago. Its validity was lately sustained by the supreme court of that state. The result must be heartening to the -friends-of city running everywhere, where there is nothing in state oorstittions which a zoning law controverts. We relieve our constitution leaves the way open for It. ? In fact." we have already crude zoning regulations l lch we believe have not been tested mainly we sup- for the reaon that they , have not Invited a test. P!-Nevv York's zoning Jaw establishes residence. ness and industrial districts, and also districts Tthich the height of buildings is regulated, regu "tke the percentage of lots that may be covered by Gildings and prescribing the. size of yards and courts. ere and elsewhere, it is said, the people have gen erally been favorable to this kind of control. '"People soon learn that under tnis policy tl.eir ' ho hopd is. protected against improper invasion ncj$n r uU property values have been conserved 'nf stabilised. ' At. the same time, the schne. has. , 0 proved to be elastic enough to permit changes, which are found to be desirable as conditions change. During these four years there has been some fear, however, that the new restrictions might be found to be unconstitutional. New York's highest court now relieves this fear following a favorable decision by Massachsetts supreme court on the same question. Zoning regulation, of course, is not all there is of city planning but it is very much of it. for without , it any plan of convenience or beautif ication would frequently find itself against the stone wall of cupid- y ity. selfishness or pure stubbornness of property own era. It removes' these obstructions. Phoenix for several years has been spotted with : unofficial zones which have been of great advantage to those living within them. Many years ago local pride only established such a zone embracing several of the avenues north of Van Buren street. Property soon became so high there that no one coujd afford to buy there for the purpose of building a shack or establishing himself otherwise to the annoyance of residents. Invaders were deterred only by the prices Many new additions were laid out with restrictions which kept out inferior buildings, with the result that prices there became such as to make the neighbor hoods exclusive and they were soon filled up with only good buildings. In all such localities the prices of real estate have advanced far above the general level. - Fifteen or twenty years ago real estate in many parts of the city, some of them by reason of their superior elevation even better adapted to residential purposes than the older exclusive sections, were in vadd by cheap people with the result that real estate there is much lower in price. Conditions were es tablished which it will take years, perhaps a genera tion, to change." ANGLIN'? Divorce Figure This is referred to the primary class in arithmetic, though we fear that the solution must be furnished. If at all. by those familiar with higher -mathematics, conversant with the calculus of variations, or the com binatory theory including combinations, permutations and determinants. We frankly confess that It is too much for us. . . The divorce statistics show that "185.000 women and 158,000 men werqr divorced In a year." We would not think anything of It if these were Turkish sta tistics but they are not. They belong to this sup posedly monagamous land. Therefore, what has be come of these 29,000 husbands who seem to be unac counted for? When one is divorced he or she must be divorced from somebody. We can only offer suggestions to the real workers on this problem. They may or may not be helpful. Perhaps bigamy Is involved. There are notoriously . more bigamous men than women. The range of men over the country is greater than that of women and they have greater opportunities to commit bigamy. But then when we come to think, that complicates the problem and makes ft worse. If it was the other way, if the divorced men were more numerous than divorced women this suggestion would be illuminat ing. Aa it Is, it only deepens the murkiness. So.it. may be disregarded; we're, sorry we offered It. Forget it. , The language of the statement may be defective, a misapprehension by the statistician of the meaning of the word ''divorced." A divorced person. is com monly understood to be the one against whom a sue- cessful action for separation is brought, against whom the "writing of divorcement" is directed.. the one "put away." the divorcee. Thus the plaintiff is never divorced except, perhaps rarely, on a counter complaint. '. This being the case; we know that the figures are wrong if the word "divorced" has been properly used, for there are more erring men than women. Again It may be that what is meant by the cen sus bureau is that 156,000 men were defendants in . divorce actions, and 185,000 women. But that is dis proved by the statement In the immediate foregoing paragraph, as well as by the records of all the courts we ever heard of. ' We can't make head or tall of It. In Tennessee Today We hope the Tennessee legislature is not playing the despicable joke that Arizona territory legislatures used to work off on the women of this territory. The council of the house, at first regarded the joke as directed at the other branch. Each knew that .v bill grunting votes to worn in would fa-l in ;e last vJilt-:. so that one or the otnT with a profession of "sym pathy, would hurry a bill through. A little lar. as the sentiment in favor of suffrage grew stronger, neither house was quite sure of itself or tne other, and usually there was an understanding that before a bill. was passed in either house it would" surely be finally beaten. A democratic legislature once pro posed to pass it up to Governor Kibbey, republican. But on an intimation from him that he was prepared to approve it, the legislature declined to pass it. There was something suspicious in the unexpect edly overwhelming vote by which the Tennessee sen ate ratified the amendment. The most sanguine of the suffragists who had canvassed the senate were surprised. They thought they knew exactly the strength of their forces. This suspicion was strengthened on Saturday when the speaker of the house replying to a telegram from President Wilson urging the house to concur today In the senate action, said "I do not think the men of Tennessee will sur render their honest, convictions for expediency or political harmony." . In view of the president's record on the suffrage question and his tendency toward partisanism, that was a pretty sharp rebuke, the most stinging he had received since a certain November night in 1918. It is palpable that the solicitude of the president and of the great majority of the democratic leaders for favorable action by a democratic legislature would not be felt if the matter were pending before a legis lature of one of the only two republican states which have not ratified the amendment. It is not woman suffrage the president wants but the democratic votes of women which the party needs. The president in sending that message asked the legislature to abandon the very ground he himself occupied with respect to suffrage up to the late summer of 1916. 4 There is said to be an invasion of England by American bartenders. The English are naturally and nationally conservative and will probably stick to the barmaids despite the allurements of the ingen iously mixed American drinks.

We are not finding and fault with these laws except the delinquent tax law, it is the most absurd and unreasonable law that could be enacted incurring the greatest expense possible in the collection of back taxes. The system now in use in this: When the time has arrived for the tax col lector to close his books he is then re quired to make up the back tax record. These books are very expensive and it reqnires expert help to transcribe but of the original roll into the delin quent. When this work is completed he is then required to make out tax bills to be delivered to the county at torney for his use in preparing suits for the collection of these delinquent taxes. After these suits are prepared he files them with the clerk of the su perior court which entails much work in his office. Then summons are issued and are served upon the defendant personally or by publication and if the taxes are not paid judgment is entered against the taxpayer. The filing fee is $10 fbr every suit filed and where the sum mons is by publication the printer's fee for each publication is $2a. On May 25; 1915. thtre were 32 judg ments and decrees rendered on suits filed and among then were suits for taxes as follows: One suit for C6c. one for $1.25, one for 99e, one for $1.86. one for $1.64 and on, each of the suits are. $10 filing and $25 printer's fees. The county paid to the printer $800 in cash when the' publication of these summons were completed. This delinquent tax law has the tax collector's office,- cotinty attorneys, the clark, of the superior court and the sheriffs office-involved in-the collec tion of delinquent taxes the most ex pensive system, that could be imagined. : Why have all these offices involved when the treasurer can : do all this work in his office? Here is a system to be adopted which is simple, concise, efficient and econ omical. . ' When the taxes become delinquent instead of the tax collector making out the back tax roll, he should prepare the .delinquent .list for publication for 30 days requesting all delinquent tax payers to pay their taxes within time stated, and if not paid the property Rhould be sold to the state and a cer tificate tax sale should be issued to the state with one year allowed for re demption, and if not redeemed a deed should be issued , to the state and the state can then lease or seil .the land. The records of these transactions should be kept in separate books, one for certifieatts of tax sale, one for tax deeds. When the tax collector makes the sale to the state he shall issue to the state a certificate simple in form with the certificate of- redemption annexed, to be filled out when the taxpayer re deems from the sale, the certificate to be delivered to him the same as receipt in payment of taxes. This will clear the office of that much dead matter. The certificate will be numbered and a brief description of the land should be recorded in the cer tificate of tax sale record. Also the date of sale and number of the certificate should be noted in the column of the tax roll which contain the date when paid. This system will relieve the county attorney, clerk of superior court and sheriff of all obligation in the matter of collecting back taxes. The men who are seeking to be elected to the next legislature, take notice that there will be a bill intro duced to repeal the present delinquent tax law, and enact a law based on reason and common sense. KEYSTONE ABSTRACT CO., By W K. SCARBOROUGH, President. Need of Aviation Field To the Editor: Phoenix has received both a warning and a lesson in the notices of the ar rival at Tucson of Captain Eddie Rick enbacker and John Larsen of the New York Aircraft corporation with their big all metal monoplane. Had Phoenix just a little more "pep" and actual knowledge of aviation prob lems and the aviation .eommitttes that have been named at various times would get in touch with persons ac quainted with air problems and get busy and condemn property and in augurate a class "A" United States air service field and air port we would be on the transcontinental air routes and also get air mail service. The trouble with the air port prob lem here is ignorance of fejc-onautical conditions and no real action. Lieutenant Glover of the air photo graphic service states that the only field near Phoenix that modern air craft not the small "Jenny-4s" we see around htre could land on its at the Ingleside golf links. Let us end this condition, first by organizing an Aero club of Arizona composed primarily of ex-air service men who know- aeronautics, and take the air situation here out of the hands of men who can do and have done nothing. Second, let this club take over all such activities in Phoenix and line up a real field. There are some Kites that should be condemned, and let this be done at once, so before " (Written for The Christian Science Monitor) "The one important interpretation of Scripture," writes Mary . Baker Edd on page 320 of "Science and Hcaltfc with Kev to the Scriptures," the text book of' Christian Science, "is the spiritual. For example, the text, 'In my flesh shall I see God,' gives a profound idea of the divine power to heal the ills of the flesh, and encourages mor tals to hope in Him who healeth all our diseases; whereas this passage is continually quoted as if Job intended to declare that even if disease and worms destroyed his body, yet in the latter days he should stand in celestial perfection before Elohim, still clad in material flesh an interpretation that is just the opposite of true, as may be seen by studying the book of Job." In this passage from the textbook Mrs. Eddv sets forth the great funda mental fact of Christian Science, namely, the allness of Spirit. To the seeing eye, the operation of God, Prin ciple, is seen everywhere because there is no other operation. Now, Christian Scince teaches that what is called Spirit is divine consciousness, the only reality, while matter is a mere belief of suppositional mortal mind. In pro portion, therefore, as reality, or Prin ciple, is discerned, it governs belief by the simple process of destroying belief, and revealing its own, only and ever existence. To human sense, this pro cess appears as healing of an errone ous condition. Actually, it is the re vealing of the fact that such a condi tion never existed or obtained. "In my flesh shall I see God. in other words, in my apparently materia! suroundings I shall see the operation of Principle.' that is. " as matter gives up more and more its claim to exist ence, Principle will be more and more manifest. The ministry of Christ Jesus was a continuous demonstration of this great -fact. In everything he said and did. those who had ears to heai and eyes to see could discern the op- . erations of Principle. The tremendous part which healing, in its widest sense, occupied In Jesus' work may be for cibly realized by turning to any of th gospels in the King James version and scanning the sub-headings of each page. Thus, take Matthew, for instance beginning at the conclusion of the sermon- on the -mount, the -sub-headings at the top f each page run: "Christ healeth the centurion's servant." "He stilleth the sea-" "The sick of the pal sy" (healed). "Christ, ralseth Jairus' daughter." "The demoniac cured." These are. of course, only some of the signs which Jesus did. walking on the water, feeding vast concourses of men . and women, procuring tribute money from a fishes mouth and so on. At every turn, Jesus manifested the operation of Principle, and this opera tion of Principle was always to destroy the material so-called law. He proved that right In the very place where ma terial sense saw sickness, there was -fiealth; saw madness, there was. san ity; saw lack, there was abundance: saw storm and tempest, there was n great calm; saw death, there was life. . As Mrs. Eddy writes on pages 476 and . 477 of Science and Health. "Jesus be held in Science the perfect man. who appeared to him where sinning mortal ' man appears to mortals. In this per- feet man the Saviour saw God's own likeness, and this correct view of man healed the sick." Jesus, in other words, . was always conscious of the operation of Principle, and as a consequence, this operation was made manifest, not only to himself, but to those round about him in what they regarded as a material environment. In their flesh. iney saw uuu. - Now if for a moment reference be had. once again., to the sub-headinirs of Matthew already referred to, it will be found that, immediately following the record ' of the healing of the de moniac, there is this further record. "Christ sendeth out his apostles. He instructeth and comforteth them." Turning to these instructions, it is at once found that their central point is the injunction, to preach the gospel and to heal the sick, "cleanse the leners. raise the dead.' cast out devils." That this instruction was not to be confined to the nobles Jesus clearlv ishowed in his last talk with his disciples before his ascension, as recorded in the clos ing chapter of Mark, where he states explicitly that these healinsr works are the duty and privilege of "them that believe." the inevitable result, that l. of an understanding of Principle. Now this understanding of Principle, or the reality of things. Is not some thing which can only be acquired to nraotiriil nurnose after a. lone oeriod of toilsome study. True. It is aci infinite study, for it is the forever unfolding of the reality of all things. And yet, the smallest glimPBe of Principle Is at once applicable and demonstrable. First and last Christian Science rests on demon stration, and just as the child who learns the simplest rule In arithmetic can immediately begin to apply that rule, so anyone who discerns th trutli of a statement of Christian Science can at once begin to demonstrate that statement: can at once begin to see in his seemingly material surroundings the operation of Principle. "Spirit is God." writes Mrs. Eddy on page 46S of Science and Health, "and man is His imare and likeness." Man. therefore, reflects Life and so possesses health, happiness and peace, abundant supply, infinite freedom and ever-present wis dom. Any evidence to the contrary o' this is false evidence, as false as the evidence of the eyes that the sky and sea meet on th horizon, or that the sun travels across the sky from east to west. Christian Science states this and proves it. The riehts of man are comprised in his infinite capacity to reflect Principle, and In proportion to the faithfulness with which this right is maintained by anyone will that one begin, in his flesh, to see God. i o SEIZE CARLOAD OF LIQUOR CHICAGO, Aug. 15 A carload of liquor valued at $175,000 .and shipped here from Kentucky was seized yester day by federal officials.
