A telegram was received at the office
of the adjutant general from R. sJ
Adams of Kingman, Ariz., making in
quiry concerning the steps to be taken
for the organization of a national
guard company here. The American
legion post at Kingman, he said, is
favorable, and the business men of that
town are interested. Inquiry was
made about the character of the oath
administered to members of the organ
ization and information is desired as
to who will be in control of it, the lat
ter inquiry relating perhaps to the
federalization of the guard.
Mohave county has never had a com
pany of the national guard and until
now there has never been any interest
evinced concerning it. It is supposed
that the interest now manifested has
nificent sum of one-half of one cent
per day!
It is clear from these figures that
these bonds constitute bot a very
slight, in most cases almost negligible,
taxation. And the idea of -what the
bonds will cost disappears completely
from view when one takes into consid
eration what they will save!
At present Maricopa county pays

system of dirt roads that would be a
disgraco anywhere. This money is lit
erally thrown away. Compare with
mis waste the fact that $270,000 per
year (or $30,000 less than what we
now throw away on our dirt roads) is
all which we will pay on these addi
tional bonds to be voted Dec. 31, w hich
will put Maricopa's road system on a
permanent basis.
And think of the individual waste
of our dirt roads! How much wear
and tear to automobiles, how much
gasoline, how much tires, etc., etc., do
these dirt roads, full of chuck holes
and ruts, cost us?. How much loss of
time, and how much discomfort? How
much damage to marketing and busi
ness? ,
Think it over and vote TES for the
