THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN, WEDNESDAY MORNING, AUGUST 3, 1921. KEEPING GABLES IT IN EFFORTS TO f LP VALLEY Dwight B. Heard, In Europe, Taking Import ant Part In Fight To ' Obtain Tariff On Pima Cotton Leaving out of the comparison large international commercial and financial enterprises, government matters and the business of the news agencies, probably In the past two weeks more business has been fur nished for the cable companies by Arizona's fight for a tariff for long staple cotton. Dwight B. Heard, who Is taking the keenest interest in it. is almost daily sending cables to friends and associates in Phoenix and to the representatives of Arizona in con gress, as well as to other gentlemen of influence there, suggesting steps to be taken in the conflict. These rabies are costing Mr. Heard from $25 to 140 apiece, an expense which he is bearing cheerfully for the cause of the valley. He was in England at the time th house committee on ways ana means reported the permanent tariff bill with long staple cotton on. tne fre list. Members of cotton organ izations here, and of the chamber of commerce. Relieved that his presence in Washington was advisable and he was urged by cable to return. He had then not begun his outing. The sessions of the world's second cotton conference which was nil chief incentive to go abroad this summer .had just concluded and he had before him a program requiring visit to the cruel places or ine spinning industry in France and Czecho-Slovakia, where he was hope ful of making known the superior quality of the Salt River Valleys long staple cotton. Wo reolied that he was averse to a change of his program but that if his friends were ot tne peuer. inai his presence ma essential he could arrange his affairs so as to return to this country by August 8. In flue course he would, return to New Tork by August 28. , It was then thought by those who were keeping watch that the senate hearings might not be concluded be fore the latter date and that, with out a break in the plans of Mr. Heard, he might reach Washington in time to be present at the hearing on the cotton schedule. Since then it has become certain that that schedule will be disposed of before that date unless a post ponement of it out of its order could be arranged, and to that end Sena tors Cameron and Ashurst have been working. Two telegrams on the subject were received yesterday, one from Sena tor Ashurst to Governor Campbell in which he said: "I have sounded appropriate authority as to post ponement of cotton schedule until Mr. Heard can reach Washington. While the finance committee of the senate can extend no definite assur ance, I believe that it may yet be possible to bring about postpone ment of the cotton schedule, but the committee should hold itself in read iness, to come on a week's notice. I will wire from time to time as the situation develops." A telegram to The Republican from Senator Cameron: ''Tremen dous pressure on finance committee for hearings, and impossible to sty whether it can postpone hearing to twentv-eighth. Will know this week." For the last four days Mr. Heard .has been in cable communication Teeth and Toothpicks If you have to spend ah uncomfortable ten minutes with a toothpick every time that you eat you need dental attention right now. You will never really appreciate mouth comfort un til your teeth are put in perfect condition. We can do it better for less money an examination and estimate, at our expense, will convince you. Come in today and see. GAS ADMINISTERED with this country from Interlaken, Switzerland, presumably on his way to Czecho-Slovakia. The situation at Washington is being watched by W. H. Knox and Sims Ely, the latter having left Washington twice for home but was recalled by telegrams from Governor Campbell urging his presence at the capital. Mr. Heard Is especially desired there because of his close study of the cotton situation at home and abroad, both from the producers' end and from the marketing end, with which he has been familiarizing him self. Also during the consideration of the emergency tariff bill he spent considerable time in Washington, where at the request of the mem bers of the finance committee of the senate he prepared a brief for long staple cotton which has been made the basis of arguments for a tariff during the present struggle. Another matter in which Mr. Heard is engaged while abroad and in which through the cables he has been co-operating with the officials of the Arizona Egyptian Cotton growers, is the securing of the attention and as sistance of the war finance corpora tion In the marketing of valiey cotton. o COLORED JUBILEE SINGERS TO APPEAR AT As a result of numerous requests for the Colored Jubilee Folk Song Festival to be repeated.

No definite action was taken at the meeting, which adjourned at 4 o'clock. All but one of the county's legislative representatives were present, as well as three representatives of the State Taxpayers association. The meeting was opened by J. R. Bradshaw, ' county supervisor and president of the State Association of Supervisors, who said the meeting had been called to let the legislators know the conditions in the state and to see if there were any steps they could take to reduce the state bud get without crippling any of the state institutions or departments, and to ascertain their ideas in regard to a special session of the state legislature and its possibilites to effect a rem edy for the situation. Senator H. B. "Wilkinson, president of the state senate, said he was not in favor of a special session of the legislature unless he knew beforehand just what appropriations the people of Maricopa county wanted eliminat ed. To accomplish anything at the session, Senator Wilkinson said, the legislators should be informed as to what the people wanted. Otherwise, he said, the special session would ac complish nothing. . Senator C. M. Stoddard said an ex pression from the people as to what they wanted would be 01 great as sistance to the legislators, but it was impossible to get such an expression and without it nothinc could be done, He said he did not fa-ror the special session without a definite plan upon which to work. I. P. Jones, representative, said he thought the reduction of the budget was up ta the governor, who should offer a plan from which to work. If the heads of the departments were willing to cut down their appropria tions, the budget might be reduced he said, but he did not favor cutting the school budget, but would rather increase it. O. D. Betts. representative, said he believed the members of the legis lature now are as much in the darn as to the real requirements of the various departments as they were while in session. The heads of the departments should go on record and furnish the governor with a signed statement as to the minimum amount their departments could be run on, he said, if the session is to make a re duction. , If fully informed as to what could be done, W. D. Baxter, representa tive, said he was in favor of a spe cial session, but otherwise he was against it. J. H.-Kinney, representa tive, believed a special session would put all the legislators on trial and require them to undo that which they have already done. If each county were willing to make certain cuts and all co-operate, he said, something might be done, but he felt sure that none of the counties would want to eliminate those appropriations for which they fought in the last legislature. O. E. Schwpp said he was against any steps to reduce the appropriation made for the state university, ana felt a special session would gain nothing. John R. Norton, representing the taxpayers association, declared he felt a special session should be called to cut down the budget, Tne Duaget in 1917. he said, was about $3,000,000, and the state was in better financial condition than at present, when the state budget is approximately 6- 800.000. Taxes on a quarter section he said, were about 100 in 1917, as comDared to $800 at present. Mr. Norton said he did not blame the legislature for the prtsent conai tion of affairs, but he felt It was up to it and to the governor to pun them out." Other representatives of the tax association who spoke were C. C. Green and Fred Tate. "The present high rate of taxation,' said George D. Christy, deputy, coun ty attorney and advisor to the board of supervisors, "is caused by the large number of bond issues which have been voted. A special session of the legislature could accomplish little, but it might change tne law govern in bond elections." He pointed out that a $100,000 school bond issue in Phoenix was voted by 2S people. POLICE TO ACCEPT AUTO CLUB CARDS INSTEAD OF BAIL Membership cards in the Automo bile Club of Arizona will henceforth be accepted by the police department in lieu of cash bail if members of the club are so unfortunate as to be ar rested for violations of the traffic ordinance. This assurance was brought to the club yesterday in a letter from George O. Brisbois, chief of police, to Sidney J. Ross, presi dent and general manager of the lub: "Referring to your letter of recent date I note that the Automobile Club of Arizona is offering J25.00 reward for the recovery of any car stolen from a member of the club, also $25.00 reward for the conviction of the thief. I beg to advise that the officers of this department will co operate with you in every way possi ble regardless of rewards. "I hope to see your organization grow to a 100 per cent membership of the automobile owners of this state. I do not know of a better way of exterminating the automobile thief than through the aid of an au tomobile club such as your organiza tion. "As per our agreemefit of recent date I will accept the membership cards in lieu of cash bail for traffic violations, and I have Instructed the officers of this department accord ingly. Up to the present time none of these cards have been left at the office. I hope the members of the club will guard against traffic vio lations so carefully that it will not be necessary to bring any of them before the court, as I understand the object of the club is to co-operate with the officers in enforcing all traffic laws as well as the automobile theft laws" SSUE IT ARIZONA COTTON The condition of the Arizona cot ton crOD on July 25 was 89 per cent of normal, according to the federal crop report just issued by the local office of the United States bureau of markets and crop estimates.

YEARS F f J I J II G H TWO VACATIONS IN 17 FOR CITY OFFICIAL Those who long for an opportunity to leave Phoenix these days would do well to acquire the view point of Frank Thomas, city clerk and police magistrate. During his service of 17 years with the city he has had only two vacations. His last one was in 1920, when he took a trip which lasted two months. Previous to that he had a vacation of six weeks in 1911. "Frequency takes away the zest of vacations," he said in commenting upon the trip he took through the northwestern states in 1920. "For general all year purposes Phoenix has no equal, but every one enjoys a change once in a while. I expect my 1920 vacation to last me several years. About that time I will be ready to appreciate another one." Although Judge Thomas has had only two vacations during his long term in office he has taken several extended trips on official business. In 1906 he was sent to Cincinnati with the city water plant bonds. "I was Just in the act of signing the bonds when the sheriff served an injunction upon me and I was tied up as the pivot in a law suit for six weeks," he said. The last official trip which Judge Thomas made was last April when he journeyed with Mayor Plunkett to Chicago to sign city bonds and then to New York City, where they represented Phoenix at the police convention. of labor, replying yesterday by wirei to a telegram Bent him by W . ard Da"ies asking his support of a tariff on long staple cotton, said: "Dear Ward: Your telegram of the 27th. I am in full sympathy with the people of Arizona in , their fight for a tariff on long staple cotton. You may rest assured that I will do all in my power to help obtain this. Sjncerely yours.

U 5 THE FIRST MASKED BATTERY BY "INDIAN-MUXER Mucfi of the history of early days in our Far West has not Wen written. We recall the days when the picturesque prairie schooner creeped across the landscape of the west ; and uneasy Indians watched the encroachments of civilization. They saw in those long trains of vagrant schooners of the paleface a menace to their peace and their happiness. They moved their squaws and their papooses back from the traveled trails into secure strongholds, in preparation for the wars they knew could not be averted. They knew the paleface's firestick very well now ; and they had obtained a few. They might capture more ammunition for their empty firesticks, and even more firestick. They waited for the palefaces to open hostilities ; watching them warily from a distance, just out of range of firesticks. They had never heard of fire-wagons (artillery). ' One day the palefaces came, with many prairie schooners, drawn by cattle. Some of the schooners were different from any they had ever seen before; and the Indians were puzzled. The white men were anxious to try these firewagons ; and so they de manded that the Indians bring them supplies of com and meat, giving the Indians too short a time in which to comply. Indian scouts surrounded the wagon train at a distance to watch it.. And then the surprise ! Noise like thunder. Noise twenty times as big as that of a firestick; and smoke like that of a hun dred fires enveloped the camped palefaces. They began to shoot with wagons ! The first shot hit between two Indian scouts uiho were reconnoitering. It was indeed a great surprise. Even today the paleface likes to spring a surprise. The noise and clin created by The Spreckels " Savage" Tire Company with their D type fabric tire hai hardly cleared before the announce ment of their new Cord tire told of a still greater achievement. The ways of modern business are truly a series of surprise attacks. In releasing the Savage Cord a new standard for quality tires was set at which others will shoot.
