If Governor Cox's expose ef the Republican "slush
fund" is no rnqr tprMJhiS than that part of it felatr
ing to' Arizona . pius be very dull and uninteresting.
As to the levies upon the different cities listed by
him, the fffures may or nqt be correct, but in the
evenf of their accuracy, they dp not Indicate an ag
gregate of such magnitude as In itself to give a hint
of the "use of it for the "corruption of the electorate."
We thpk that in that very expression the governor
betrays a very" low estimate of the electorate.
Certainly, 115,000, Arizona's quota, la not an as
tounding sum; nor Is f,60, the quota .of Phoenix,
an amount of vast proportions. If we Arizonians
fee) any ehagria ia the consequence of the expose it is
at the disclosure that the gentlemen who fixed the
quota ha4 so poor an opinion of our wealth apd re?
The fact relating to Arizona's subscription to
the national Republican campaign fund are these:
After the quota had been fixed, Mr. Albert Weigel.
a young man of character and a former secretary
pf the -chamber of commerce of Indianapolis, came
here to direct the work in behalf pf the national com
mittee. He explained in"a meeting of the ways and
means committee of the state committee that the ;
money contributed by Arizona would be applied to
the campaign in this state. He told the committee
that he bad been directed by National Chairman '
Hays to receive no ' larger Individual-" subscriptions
than $1,000 and not to receive that from any individ
ual or firm if it should appear that the party would
be placed under obligation to him or It.
b bcoiib vi jit. nmym, lie sa.ia, inai suo-
ecriptions be received from the greatest number of
persons in order that their Interest n the campaign,
might be aroused. Every mart was to be giyen an
opportunity to contribute what he might, feeling that
he was making an Investment for the good of the
country and, therefore, for himself.
The business of extending this opportunity was
put into the hands of 35 Republicans, probably all
of them connected with, the state committee and one
of the most active said that when his work was com
pleted his largest subscription was a single one of
S 00. That was made by a roan , to whom he had
suggested that f 2 5 would, be a sufficient amqunt.
His smallest subscription was f 5. There was never
any pressure t argument; no haggling as to what
any man snouia give, Whether any subscription or. as
much as l,000 was taken in Arizona, no member of .
the committee whom we have seen knows, but cer
tainly none of larger amount voula have been re
ceived. If the campaign for subscriptions everywhere
was conducted as openly and as cleanly as it has
been in Arizona the national Republican campaign
fund will be the cleanest ever raised.
How much money may be properly spent in a
national campaign is a question It is hard to answer.
There s necessarily a very wide margin between the
smallest and the largest fhat may be legitimately
expended, but certainly Arizona's quota is small in
comparison with the sums that Individual Democratic
candidates in times past have expended in primary
jampaigns. We have it on pretty good authority that
a Democratic candidate for a nomination two years
ago spent $80,000. So far as we have ever heard the
expenditure was legitimate, though much of the
money was wasted. The expenses of this' candidate
in the succeeding general campaign were held down
py an epidemic of influenza which put a brake upon
all activities, political as well.
The main point concerning the revelation of
Governor Cox is that his Information whether he has
twisted it or not. was easily accessible. It required,
no sleuthing to secure it. It was available. to anyone
who asked for it. But suppose it had not been;
suppose it had been necessary to secure it by sur
reptitious means.' Would not a candidate for the
high office of president be belittling himself and the
preside'ney itself by making such a use of it? Would
it not have been much better to leave the exposure
to the Democratic national committee as one of its
In his effort to support his charge that a cam
paign fund of $15,000,000 has been raised by the Re
publican national committee to "corrupt the electo
rate," he had manufactured the factor "Z" by which to

The governor has made much of the fact that
auotas had been assigned to different parts of the
country. Of course they were. A campaign fund
Is ncessary and the raising of it by the most business-like
means is not only the best but the fairest
way to get it.
More than ever Governor Cox has brought this
matter within the purview of the senate committee
investigating campaign expenditflres. But the sides
have shifted. Governor Cox must go on defense.
The Last Phase.
At the very last moment Secretary Colby, like
me refractory cow. kicked the bucket over-so far

between the
who bad earnestly
sought equal suffrage as a privilege that belonged to
women, and those who found in the struggle an op
portunity for places in the lime light- Therein was
' marked plainly the difference between the National
Suffrage association and the National Women's party.
Tha ene was aiming at a single high purpose; the
other was constantly striving for a position on the
front page from day to day.
The former felt a genuine sorrow because of
hope deferred; grief at the obstacles which from
' time ' fco time were Interposed. The latter welcomed
these as ; eppertunf ties again and again to get nto
the . calcium light.' We have little doubt that the
leaders of the National Women's party engaged in
tlje' senseless picketing pf the White House were glad
f the reluctance of the president which, gave thm
a pretext to indulge in that silly outburst.
Ther picketing of the two national conventions
was less for th purpose of securing favorable action
in favor of woman suffrage, for the national parties
had both done all that could be done, than for the
purpose of again securing places "in the white spot.
Hundreds of times throyghoyt the long struggle
,they had endangered the amendment both as to its'
adoption aii4 its ratification. No doubt many a
member of congress and of state legislatures used
the antics of these women as argument against the
capacity of women for citizenship.
Throughout the struggle the leaders of the" Na
tional Suffrage association were calm, dignified, but
earnest and tireless. No doubt they were often angry
as they had cause tfl'be, but tbey were self-contained
and never discouraged and never-ceasing in the fight
which was coming to an end after more than a half
century. It was won when the last stroke of the
pen of Secretary Coby had been made. The blare of
trumpets could have added nothing tp the victory.
To Mrs. Carrie Chapman Catt, chairman of the
National Suffrage association the completed amend?
ment was ripened, delicious frmt to Mjss Al."1 PayJ.
chairman of the National Women's party, it was a
Dead sea apple. .
We are not speaking in general condemnation
of tfte party, but of its publlcltyrloving leaders.
There was a time when it appeared to serve a pur
pose; when it wa necessary to wield a club over
reluctant members of the two great parties. Very
many excellent women joined the parfy at that time.
But that purpose was, accomplished with, if not the
adoption f the amendment, certainly with its com
pleted ratification.
-Hymnologieaf ...
If Attorney General Jones should retire - from
official life he could no doubt readily find employ--
ment as a hymn writer. We'll ' bet that there are
few other living hymnolgits who could concoct as
good a hymn as Mr. Jones lately composed enroute
between Colton, Cal., and San Diego of the same
-state. We know that none of the dead hymn writers
could dJ it. We doubt whether any of those yet
living could equal the performance of Mr, Jones in so
- g
brief a' distance. The first verse of Mr. Jones
hymn is:
I tread my worldly path alone.
Save God who leads me here below;
Before me lies the great unkpown, (.
yet, he doth guide me where j go.
If Charles Wesley, Bishop Heber, Cardinal New
man or any of the earlier . writers pf hymns have
done better than that it was not brought to our
notice n the course of our faithful, youthful and en
forced attendance upon religious services. If any
of the living writers think that they can surpass it
let them go to it.
Much of hymnal poetry is pretty punk, so much
so that at various times church committees and com
missions have been appointed to excise the worst.
As our taste becomes more and more refined in this
respect other committees of finer screen are ap
pointed for further sifting, with the result that our
hymn books are showinf periodical improvement.
This improvement s the greater hy this process
of elimination, but the level Is also being raised
by the inclusion of new poetry, among which we
hope, after the next revision, to see included the at
torney general's contribution to metrical religious
literature of whch we think so highly, the more
we see of it, that we oanno$ refrain from Presenting
another verse of the attorney general's hymn:
My course may lead across the sea.
Where angry surges meet His Will,
As ages past in Galilee
They heard His voice speak, "Peace, be still." i
. One chief criticism of hymnal poetry goes not to
its literary quality, though that is always given con
sideration, but to the lack of spirituality, of prepon
derant religious sentiment. Beautiful as such poetry
may be it is-of the earth, earthy. Nothing can be
finer than some of the "Hebrew Melodies," but none
of them have ever been included in a book of hymns.
They were barred by their paucity of deep religious
sentiment and, prhaps, partly by the common knowl
edge of the disordered life of Byron..
But neither of these objections can be laid
against the hymn of Mr. Jones, of which we feel im
pelled to quote a third verge:
The storms of life I will not heed.
That sweep my path wher'er I roam.
I know my Father's hand doth lead
My steps to my eternal home.
But we find that' we must cease this disquisition
on hymnology lest our growing enthusiasm tempt
us into a reproduction of the poem in its entirety,
and, thus into a violation of the copyright laws.
A new word is said to have been coined in the
east, "Ponzied." Funny that we never thought of it
before, but now it recalls something, "pons asinorum,"
and .all the boys, who have studied plane geometry
know what that means. Anyhow that is the kind of
a bridge Ponzi was and many were the asini who
started across.
We ought to hear some time tonight whether
Joe Bailey has returned. If he wins in the run-off
it will not necessarily mean that Texas is less pro
gressive than it was when Mr. Bailey went into re
tirement, but that it has grown weary of its pygmy
statesmen. .,!'

Eighty-Second Trip
Flagstaff, Ar!z.
Aug. 24, '20.
Ed. Camel's Back,
Sir: ...
Just a line or two, Chief, to tell you
that 'i havent nothing of importance to
write to you today, but I know yog
jyst are dying to know where araI at
by this time and so it woyidsnt be only
fair that I should tell yoi a little
something about myself and our trip.
But I 'spose you have guessed by this
time that we, are here In Flagstaff now,
back egain pn the mam line B. road
and high prices. A bird soaked me 18e
foe a 15c can of Tuxedo and when I
hollered he says they all charges tic in
Flag and so my hoHer dident get me
nowheres. x s.
How ever I aint going to tell you all
of the wonders of Flagstaff in the first
part of my letter and so will go back
aways and tell you some more about
the Grand Canyon which you have
heard about perhaps and will remem
ber I mentfoned it in my last letter to
Well, (he kid and me pulls up stakes
as we calls it out weat here, and made
from Al Tover"s place on the Rin
down to what they calls Grand View,
a distance of 13 miles In an hr. and a
half pver 'swell roads, which will give
you a little idear what sort of a flea
we travels on. It has as much hop in
it as this near "beer, only we'll let that
alope for the time being aa I have some
thing else brewtag. Grand View is
owned by the Mr. W. Randolph Hearst
who owns a newspaper only they beat
Hearst to it by putting up Al Tower's
place at the end of the Santa Fe be
fore Harst got iis Grand View hotel
done and so Hearst give it UP and the
Grand View hotel stands there now
aH its majesty without any roomers
in it, ail though I did pick up one con
fidential roumer that Jimmle Swlner
ton. Hearst cartoonist U'ved there this
wk. Only I should tell you that before
we left Al Tover's Joint we met Mr.
Gumm and the kid had quite a chew
ing with him on this and that. Mr.
Gumm is a govts. lookout and stays up
in a high look out- tour on the edge of
the canyon where he you know looks
after the trees etc. etc, and hunts for
fires, only as I say, he hasn't no brass
pole to slide down to the ground on i'n
ease he sees a forest fire 50 miles
away and has to come down and get
his hose cart out and run to the fire.
He's an Interesting duck and knows all
about the Indians and Harold Bell
Wright all though he doesn't show any
of evil effects of It except he fs writing
short stories. So much for our stick,
tng around with Mr. Qumm.
Now when we pulls into Grand View
we had herd of the ranger who run
the camp there as he was supposed to
be some real guy and his wife too so
when we pulls i'n I says Where's the
ranger?" And a bird as big as the side
of a .house wearing a gat on his hip
steps one pace forward, "I m the
ranger, why?" "Fine day, aint it?" says
I, "My name is Schultz Hans Schultz
Ess-Tsay-Hah-oO'EI.Jay.I set
Shultz! please to meet you, Mr. ?
"Jerry," says he. "Jerry what" I
querriad, putting forth my mit. "Jerry
nothfng" he says. Pat Jerry is my
full name; I am glad to known you.
Mr. Schultz, he said as he seized my
homy paw, "Are you by any chance
related to the Jerry's from Ireland?"
I asked. "Slightly." he said. "My
mother is from Ireland." "So's mine,'
says I "She's from the county of Corlt
near the lakes of Klllarney." "Mines
from the county of Cork too," he said
fervantly pressing my hand harder,
and I could hardly keep from asking
hira for the loan pf frve dollars, chief.
So you see, Chief, how this free
western spirit shows up when two
near Irishmen meat in tha pine forests
of Ariaona. Chief. The first thing Pat
done when he spotted the kid :n the
car with a fistful of wild flowers waa
to tell her he'd ought to pinch her aa
it waa forninst the rulea to pick wild
flowers in the national parks, "but,"
he says looking at me, "Gawd's gifts
are for man to enjoy and so long's you
werent meanfrig no harm and promise
not to do it again, I'll say nothing
more." So that was Pat Jerry. The
next day he was shifted over to near
Al Turnover's place and Mr. Pinkley,
who's Job is taking care of the Cassa
Grand ruins took bis place and he is
a' bird hard to beat for service. All
these rangers and look out men. Chief,
is real guys, and a big help to the
public. In the eve we went over to
chin with Dick GUlland who takes care
of Hearst's ranch etc. and bought a
qt. of milk for 25 cents. Dick's all O.
K. and right up on prices and I saye
"How many cows you got?" "Two,"
say he, and I was going to suggest he
buy an other and retire on the mterest
of his money in a couple of years only
I concluded to hold my piece. That
nite I left my wallet in my panta and
put the can of milk under my pillow
in stead. It's the only safe whey at
250 a qt-, eb chief? '
We seen George Aller the genial
mgr. of the gas Co, in his knobby camp
costume and his fetching spouse
camped at the other side of the camp
that nite. We decided to call on
George too, but wile we was digging
around in the trunk for our ingraved
visVtors'cards George pulled up stakes
and moved out. I conclude it that they
too must of bought a qt. of milk or had
udder good reasons. (Ha! Ha! that s
a old one).
Other society news of the camp was
that Sam Webb's son came into camp
and family; also Mr. and Mrs. Blaln.
who is with the Phnx. Nat'l- Bank, and
children arr. in camp from the canyon
and will do the Ikes and portita south.
Mr. Webb & Mr. Blaine took a trip
down the Grand View Trail Sun. a. m.
expecting to return some time. A good
time was had by all, . That's all for
this time along tha lines of society
news, ehifef.
We moved on to Desert's View.JI ml.
away and camped one nite there see
ing sunset and un rite, Oliver Law.
son who used to be with our Water
Users' Assn. is In charge of some swell
little cottages of Fred Harvey'a there,
showed ua a swell tim and we killed
a rattler, and Just think, Chief, Oliver
gets the Republican every day way out
there and it's the grandest vew of the
Canyon. We bust a retreaded tire in
the road and had to put on the new
one we got from Mack's Tire Hse.
which he shipped all the way from
Phnx. for us to the Canyon. Tell Mack
we done 40 mi. on the tire and you can
hardly tell it.
Now we are at Flagstaff on their
camp grounds which we call the Rock
Pile. And if the state health officer
wants something to do he's got a Job
making Flagstaff clean up these
grounds. Frank Gurley & family and
Bro. Keith and family of Mesa is all
here and doing fine. Dr. Hutchinson
Of Los Angeles la here in a Pullman
auto and intends to winter i'n Phoenix
if this camp doesn't kill him.
Well, here's how. chief, and that 11 be
all for this time.

S Text: First Kings 3:4-15.
"And . the kjjig went to Gibeon to
sacrifice there; for that was the great
.high place; A thousand burnt offerings
did Solomon offer upon the altar. In
Gideon Jehovah appeared to Solomon
in a dream by night; and God said.
Ask what I shall give thee. And Solo
mon said. Thou hast showed unto thy
ervat David -my father great loving
kmdness, according as he walked be
fore thee in truth and hi righteousness,
and in prightness of heart with thee;
aad thou haat kept for him this great
loving kindness, that thou hast given
him a son to sit on his tfcrone, as Jt is
this day. And now, O Jehovah my
God, thou hast made thy servant king
instead of David my Father; and I am
but a little child, I know not how to go
out or come in. - And thy servant is in
the midst of thy people which thou
hast chosen,, a great people, that can
not be numbered or counted for multi
tude. Give thy servant therefore the
understanding heart to judge thy
people, that I may discern between
good and evil; for who is able to judge
this thy great people? And the speech
pleased the Lwd that Ffomon had
asked this thing. And God said unto
him. Because thou haat asked this
thing, and hast not asked for thy self
long life, nerther hast asked riches for
thyself, nor hast asked the life of thine
enemies, but hast asked for thy self
understanding to discern Justice: be
hold, I have done according to thy
word-; lo, I have given thee a wise and
understanding heart; so that there
hath been none like thee before thee,
neither after thee shall any arise like
unto thee. And I have also given that
for which thou hast not asked, both
riches and honor, so that there shall
not be any among the kings Ilka unto
thee, all thy days. And thou will walk
in my ways to keep my statutes and
my commandments, as thy father
David did walk, then I will lenghten
thy days. And Solomon awoke; and,
"behold, it was a dream: and he came
to Jerusalem, and stood before the ark
of the covenant of Jehovah, and of
fered up burnt offerings, and offered
peace ofen'ngs. and make a feast to
all his servant" """'"IK!! f
There Is Just one central, outstand
ing lesson in the text of this wonder
ful lesson. It is like the tall trees in
the forest or the high peaks of the
Rockies. It is seen above everything
else. It strikes one i'n the face. We
are thrilled and nerved by it. It is
the text that ought to be used for the
young of every generation. It is the
testing acid for life. It is the parting
of the ways between good and evil. It
will lead to happiness or misery.
When Solomon was to told by God to
ask for what he would most like, he
replied, "Give thy servant therefore an
understanding heart to judge thy
people, that I may discern between
good and evil." Liet us all commit It
and repeat it and teach it to our chil
dren and explain ft. Nothing else mat
ters much in the lesson for this Sun
day. No bigger lesson in all the Bible
than thie. It Is a prayer that we need
to get old and young, learned and un
learned to repeat and really feel.
It will not matter much whether we
go to commentaries, and dictionaries
and notes of various theologians for
our study of this lesson, as teachers.
It is enough for the half hour if we
can get the one fundamental idea into
the minds of our pupils.
A secondary thought in the lesson
may be noted if there Is time. God
gave Solomon what he asked for and
then gave him more than he asked
because he asked wisely. i
When Queen Victoria was crowned
queen of the British empire she at
once sent for the archbishop of Can
tenburry and asked him to pray that
she might-be given a simple faith in
God and wisdom to direct the weighty
affairs of state. When Lincoln came
to the throne he sent for Henry Ward
Beecher. Garfield and McKinley asked
their pastors to pray for them daily.
The great men selected to lead the
vast allied armies against the Hun3
were men of prayer and were often
found kneeling in the church praying.
If the leaders in nation and state today
were men of God and men of prayer,
the world would know it soon by their
wise leadership. Just now ia a good
time to talk to older classes about the
kind of men we are voting for It should
be a cause of prayer and serious con
cern that not more than 10 of our 47
state candidates are active members of
Evangelical churches. The number is
probably less than ten. Is this a
Christian or a pagan nation? Is Ari
zona Christian or heathen? The
chances are that four out of five of
those we elect this fall in this state
will not be members of any church.
We are not blaming the candidates for
this situation Just now but we are
trying to reflect some sense of duty
where church members have been neg
ligent about the kind of men we elect
to office. If we are proud of the Pil
grim .foundation and the declaration
of faith in the constitution and stand
for the Ideals of Christian democracy,
we should never have a man in office
of responsibility not In sympathy with
these ideals and not living a life con
sistent with them.
David was prematurely old at 70.
He knew that he would not live long.
He was wise in placing Solomon on
the throne before he died. Absalom ia
dead. Jonathan is dead, Saul Is dead.
AdoniJah is the oldest son but a wise
choice narrowly averted a calamity to
Israel by the selection of Solomon in
stead of the usual heir. Later Adonijah
got up a plot and conspired to seise
the throne. It failed. Other plots
tailed. The conspirators were put to
death. Solomon made a strong alliance
with Egypt and became very great as
a ruler.
It would aeem that Solomon had all
that earth could give before God an-
peared to him in a dream. He had
youth, beauty, wealth, prosperity,
fame, glory, greatneaa and power. If
there is any more - for him it must
come from heaven. No matter now
much this earth offers us. there is
something lacking - that earth cannot
give. That which cometh down from
the father above ia the one essential
thing to real greatness and usefulness.
If the young man of today proposes
to go through life without the gift of
God within his heart and the wisdom
from above to guide him, he is doomed
at the start. Jehovah Is ready to
bestow this superior gift upon all who
will accept It and use it. The best
way is "To seek ye first the kingdom
of Heaven and all other things will be
True education is not so much the
knowledge of many things as it 7a "An
understanding heart and the wisdom
to discern righteousness." The wisdom
so often mentioned In Proverbs is the
kind that Solomon wanted. "The fear
of God Is the beginning of wisdom."
"If thou wilt walk in my ways, to
keep my statutes and my command
ments, then I will lengthen thy days."
There is no point in giving any man
a long life unless he fulfills these con
ditfons. "
Solomon made a great choice but it
did not sava him from folly later in
life. It is one thing to start right and
choose right but quite another thing
to keep right all the way. The battle
is on all the time. There are lurking
dangers all the way. The runner is
apt to fall at any time. It is not al
ways the one in the lead at the start
who finishes in the lead. See report
of recent Marathon races. In a later
lesson we have the story of Solomon's
mistakes. It is only in order here to
refer to them as an illustration of a
man being perfectly endowed with
heaven and earth, but still too weak
and foolish to keep right.
Some writer asks whether God will
give any thing we ask. He will not.
but He will give according to our
faith to our capacity and our motive.
Just as well ask for big things while
we are about it as God is well supplied
with every grace we need. Taylor,
Judson, Carey, Livingston and other
great missionaries asked for kingdoms.

A number of people who were dis
posed to plant trees last year failed to
do so because cottonwood was the only
thing available which they did not like,
contending that willow would not

out fourteen of them ten feat apart on
the tenth of January last and now
some of them have branches an Inch

Raley and the Ministerial Alliance of
Phoenix, I notice that the name of T.
D. Cashel does not even appear in the
list of candidates for the office of cor
