We in the United States are slow to make up oilr minds that an annoy ance has attained to the stature of an evil and is ivorth ending. Alba B. Johnson. The Fear of Death The announcement the other night to a Phoenix audience that those who can manage to evade or sddestep death until 1925 gives a short lease of life, of only four years, to the undertaking industry which has undergone marvelous development within the last half century. It will also be cheering to '-hose to whom death is a grisly monster, if they be lieve that the preacher was fully Informed of a matter which has been hitherto rather obscure. " "We do not know what may happen in the next I four years or after that, but as the self constituted ' adviser of the community we would warn our read ; ers. to be on the safe side, to go on preparing for , death and also to engage in the equally important ' preparation to live. ' Death is not the dreadful thing that most of us ; think It is. It is for the preservation of the race and ; f all animal life that the fear of death has been so ', deeply implanted In us all by One whose vast plans involve much more than the setting up of His king- ; dom on earth. Death is nothing to be feared by one ! who is ready to die. By that we do not mean only ' him whosa life has been well-ordered and whose ac- count is straight, but one who realizes that all the good he can do on earth has been done and who f when brought face to face with death, perceives it to t be inevitable and immediate. There have been many instances when the dying have gone out shrieking with horror but in tho great ; majority of cases there has been a peaceful reslgna , tion at the end which has led to the belief, much bet ) ter founded than that which rests on distorting pro I phecy, that the same power which planted the fear of death in us for our preservation, in the hour and J article of death, removes this dread. Scientists tell Jus that to the lower animals facing certain death J cither by stronger beasts or at the hands of men, ! there comes a sort of blessed stupefaction which j wallows fear. ; "Whatever of agony there may be in death must J he shared by all creatures that have lived and agony I will be succeeded by peace for those who have lived ! rightly. If we spend more time attending to that and less to means for the circumvention of death we will 'bejn the way of attaining that last early peace. ', ' Except for that natural fear of death with which, as we have said, we have been endowed for a wise ".purpose, we cannot understand why any believer Should inordinately desire to remain on the earth. The doctrine of eternal life on earth, we believe, ;!es not appeal to clear-thinking people. Panama Tolls !', Former Attorney General Wickersham has lately 'written an open letter pointing out tho difficulties that He In the way of legislation to exempt vessels of it he American merchant marine from tolls in the S anama canal, as it is understood that such legisla tion is being agitated. The ground was pretty well jhreshed over in the discussion of this subject that took place in 1913 when President "Wilson held that puch an exemption would be in violation of our treaty Hifh Great Britain. The Democratic national plat form that had beeen adopted at Baltimore pledged Jhe party to such an exemption and Mr. Wilson In the course of the campaign pledged himself. Many people, cays Mr. Wickersham, brush the matter aside by saying that since America built the ianal America is, certainly entitled to exempt her own ships from the payment of tolls if it sees fit to do so. But Mr. "Wickersham says that we are. bound by treaty not to exercise any discrimination in favor if ourselves. . The Clayton-Bulwer treaty of 1850 stipulated among other things that any canal which might be constructed should not only be "open to citizens and subjects of the-United States and Great Eritain on equal terms but shall be free and open to vessels of 'commerce and war of all nations on terms of entire 'equality so that there shall be no discrimination against any nation or its citizens and subjects in re spect to the conditions or charges of traffic or other wise." ' It is clear enough that America in facing the problem Of the exemption of tolls is by no means in tho position it would have been had it never put its signature to that treaty. If it were not for that treaty as well as the Hay-Fauncefote treaty which reaf firmed It in the language above used, the United Slates would be wholly free to do what it liked in jhe matter of the exemption proposal. The treaty commitments which many people neither understand nor know of. add compilations to the problem which U is well that every one should comprehend. Such legislation aa hns been suggested would certainly complicate our relations with the rest of the world which are yet In a most uncertain state. And the breaking of treaties Is much more unpopular now that It was when Germany broke into Belgium. and orphans who have been burdened with the in creased assessment that homes of the type I occupy have been increased so small. My sense of justice impels me to protest. It goes to show that the pres ent hit-or-miss assessment system is all wrong." This man is one whom we call a good citizen, abnormally good, if we accept the standard of the average taxpayer as normal. The latter never in sists on a revision of his assessment, except down ward. He is not apt to be concerned about discrim ination unless he happens to be the one discrim inated against. A perfect taxing system or a perfect assessment system has never been devised and in all probability, never will be. But it seems that a nearer approach to perfection might be made in all known systems. A New Kind of Protesting Taxpayer A man in a million, we may say, one in the 105.000,000 men. women and children with whom the census credits the United States, has been found in Philadelphia. He protested to the taxing authorities because his property had been assessed for less than it was worth. The assessment had been raised but not high enough to suit him. He argued about it ;t, the authorities. His assessment was only $t f't'rt vl.cn it ought to have been $C.Ou0. -Tho u.i,--. in the house are worth $4,300,- he said. Gerrymandering Ohio jiiore than any other state in the union, for the last half century has been changing the boundaries of its congressional districts to the dis advantage of the opposition. When Democratic leg islatures have been in power they have arranged the districts so that a normally minority party might secure more than its share of the congressmen. As many as possible heavy Republican counties were bunched together and the other counties were so arranged that a Democratic county with a large ma jority might be placed in a district with several Re publican counties with small majorities. When Democratic legislatures were succeeded by Republi can legislatures the work of the Democrats was undone and the counties were rearranged so that the Democrats would be deprived of the representation in congress to which it was enj tied. In consequence of this arranging and re-arranging many of the con gressional districts of Ohio bave most grotesque shapes. The present arrangement of the Ohio districts was made by a Democratic assembly some years ago. In 1910 the Republicans, then in power, sought to " change the boundaries and a bill was enacted. But it was defeated on a referendum. That was known as the Sprague act. The vote on it was not along party lines. It was admitted that the Democratic ar rangement was purely gerrymandering and it was evident that that was also the purpose of the Sprague act. The average citizen saw no reason for making such a change as was proposed. And now, the Democrats of Ohio are protesting against another attempt by the Republicans to change the boundaries, though we have not heard that there is any Intent to do so. The present ar rangement, though by Democrats, which gave to the Republicans twenty-two congressmen from districts which had been carefully prepared for Democratic occupancy ought to be satisfactory even to Repub licans, n No Lack of Confidence That men are being thrown out of employment in large numbers and that the wages of many who have remained In employment have been reduced is not to be denied. There is a slowing down of manu facturing, due in part to the wholesale cancellation of orders and the down-rush of prices of raw ma terials. Manufacturers naturally want to wait until they think the bottom has been reached. But the volume of involuntary unemployment is not as great as we may Imagine from the dispatches stating that some hundreds of men have been laid off here and some thousands there. Many lines of activity have been unaffected and there are places for thousands of those who have been thrown into idleness and who will shortly find places again in the industries with which they were formerly connected. The present attitude of business men in many lines is one of waiting for the readjustment which is sure to come. A prudent man hesitates at com mitments without some notion as to the future in which he may be placed at a disadvantage. Some Democratic newspapers are pointing with ill-concealed satisfaction at the growing . inactivity, as evidence of a want of confidence in the Republi can policies that are to be inaugurated. That, of course, is absurd when we consider by what unani mity the people voted less than a month ago to make Republican policies possible. As a matter of fact, the slowing down process was pretty well under way two months before the election. There was then a strong tide of cancellation orders flowing back to wholesalers and manufacturers. Some months ago the American Woolen company had shut down partly for this reason and partly because of the falling price of wool. There is no lack of confidence in tfie next ad ministration, but there is an understanding that there are many thing in trade and finances beyond the control of - administrations things that must work themselves out and things that are only the more disturbed by political interference. Nor is there a iact of popular confidence in the future. Every thinking man knows that there will be a good outcome. He does not know when and he does not know just how he will be affected by the processes which are to bring it about. A minister of the gdspel told his hearers the other day that a man should treat his wife as court eously as he treats his stenographer. What is the world coming to with such promulgation of revolu tionary notions? It is said that an effort is being made by Alaskan packers to popularize reindeer meat in the United States. That ought not to be hard to do. Any kind of meat, beef, pork or mutton can be popularized by making the price right. It is said that those who fall to vote in Czecho slovakia are sent to jail, if all such delinquents in Phoenix last Saturday had been similarly treated and sent to the city jail, the next time they had a chance they would vote favorably on at least one of the propositions, submitted at the bond election, that of the issue of $150,000 for improving the city hall and providing more commodious quarters for city prisoners. A Hindoo jokesmith might be called a pundit, but he isn't. Malinger means to feign Illness, but there was nothing phony about the Irish riots at Mullingar. John D. Rockefeller won a prize at a flower show. Oddly enough, he won with his carnations, not pet-rol-unlas. If education uplifts, how about the section boss who can swear in seven languages? rT:""'lu,ll" j CHeXVTR X. I CHAPTER-IE. " 3 QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS FORTY YEARS AGO TODAY From the Phoenix Herald, which was abaorbad by Tho Arizona Re publican in 1899, and for a time was publihd as an evening edition AUTNMNAL I look about me on the faded hillsides And brown fields lately swept of gol den grain I hear the soft-winged partridges sweetly calling From out the leafless border of the lane. Tuesday, November 30, 1380 Silver City, N. M, Nov. 29 The re port telegraphed to the Tucson Star of November 24 from Shakespeare of the killing of Kjng and wounding of Bill Smith, alleged horsethieves which was stated to have occurred at Downing's ranch in the Animas mountains proves to have been false. Twenty head of stock were recovered by Turner, Martin and party and an engagement of sev eral hours actually took place but it was bloodless. Turner and Martin when returning from Shakespeare to San Simon were ambushed at Granite Gap by King and his gang. Martin was killed instantly being shot through the head. Three head of stock were shot and kilted in the affray. Turner es caped.' A regular vendetta has been commenced in the San Simon valley, and the end is not yet. Washington, Nov. 29 President Hayes has receiver and accepted the ! resignation of Judge Charles Silent, as- i sociate Justice of the supreme court of Arizona. The cause assigned by Judge Silent for his resignation is ill health. Nominations to fill the vacancy will be sent to the senate as soon as congress convenes. Applications lor appoint ment as his successor are already on file in the department of justice from J. B. Harmon and W. II. McJunkin of San Francisco, W. II. McGraw of San Jose, L. B. Treadwell of New Tork and Samuel R. Alien of Arkansas. Editorial Our Next Legislature January 3, a little over a month the legislature of the territory convenes. Its time Is limited to 40 days bv law- which is altogether too small for the work to do. Such being the case though, It is very essential for the members to thoroughly post themselves on the requirements of their sections so that they can get to work with the least possible delay. In past session the capital question has occupied most of the time and we hop It will not be brought up this time at all because it would go to Tucson if moved and Pres cott is the better suited for it of the two cities. Considerable legislation is necessary for this county and our wants and needs should be thoroughly under stood by our legislators before they leave for the capital. We invite cor respondence on necessary legislation. The Daily Herald will always have space for such communcations. Let us have a thorough understanding in the next month.

Mennonites to Migrate DOUGLAS Ten thousand Menno nites will go to Mexico in December to settle permanently. Application for lands 011 which to settle have been made to Gen. Antonio Villareal, secre tary of agricultural. The colonists will bring their own agricultural imple ments to Mexico. The Mennonites who wish to settle in Mexico are enemies of war and pacifists. They will probably be assigned lands in Oaxaca, Tabasco and Compeehe. International. Odor Betrayed "White Mule" ' GLOBE Jose Flores and Frank Bracamonte, both Mexicans, are prob ably the most brazen men in the pro fession of making white mule, and their manufacturing establishment which is one of the most complete ever found in the district has been closed and its equipment properly Installed in the booze room of the county jail. Deputy John Wight was driving some cattle about 1"0 yards from his home in Ice House canyon yesterday afternoon early when he ran into a smoke stack which came up out of the ornuml in tlio rr.Mr of a. house helone- ir.g to Frank Brai-anionte.

Jose Flores lifted his eyes and met the fighting end of a six-shooter which re quested him to come up out of the cellar. When Flores came out he was placed under arrest and sent to town by the officer, who remained to make further investigation. He went down into the small cellar to find a still in full operation and the liquid intoxicant dripping into a glass container. Full steam was up and the plant was turn ing out about a quart an hour. Record. Smash Bottles, Evidence Runs! GLOBE Almost one-half of the bottles of bonded tequila captured in .1 car in the possession of B. D. Bounds and Homer Clayton saveral days ago and stored in the office of Deputy Marshal Frank Haynes, were smashed by a person or persons who robbed the office Tuesday night of this number, Several bottles were found broken on the floor of his office when he opened the door yesterday morning, and sev eral more in the alley in tho year of the building, Thirty-five bottles of the 77 confis cated were destroyed in the raid on the marchai's office, and it is thought that an effort was made to destroy the evi dence against the two men for trans porting the booze. Record. Raises Cane! Gets Arrested! DOUGLAS Francisco Diaz of Doug las was arrested at the international boundary by Customs Inspector Jack Kely last night, charged with violation ot rulings of the United States depart ment of agriculture. Diax attempted to cross into the United States with a wagon load of sugar cane, according to Mr. Kelly, who said that importing or cane into the United States is illegal, according to provisions set forth by the departmen of agriculture which alleges that th cans contains worms and bugs which prove injurious to the crops in thi country.
