It is not the defects but the beau ties which should form our criterion of judgment in all matters of art. Chapin. A Lack of Co-Ordination Tere Is a lack of co-ordination in the various departments and bureaus of our government such a lack of It as to bo ridiculous.- The best illustra tion of it Is In the position in which co-operative associations of CiJifornia grape and fruit growers find themselves. 1 Formerly at the mercy of the Independent pack ers of fruits who fixed prices and compelled the growers to take them, under the encouragement of the department of agriculture, they formed associ ations for the handling of their own products, the absorption for their own benefit of the profits for merly reaped by the packers and those gleaned along the way by hordes of middlemen. They were patted on the back by the department and were aided so far as the department could aid them In copper-riveting their associations. All this appeared laudable to everybody but the middlemen and the private packers, who went to another depart ment of government about It the department of jus tice. Now the growers find themselves defendants against the charge of violating the Sherman anti trust law. - We wonder whether In. the course of the litiga tion the department of justice ought not to proceed against the department of agriculture as an aider and ebettor of the growers in a conspiracy to with hold from the private packers and middlemen - the spoils which they, had become used to enjoying. increase in the last two years of the number of im portant crimes. We mentioned at that time that the men who commit such crimes bank burglaries, great hold-ups. gigantic forgeries and who conduct swindling operations are necessarily sober men. Our belief was that such crimes as these could not have been affected by prohibition. But Mr. Grey points out that though prohibition cannot be charged with having inspired crimes of that class, it has in two ways facilitated such crimes and placed a bar temporarily in the way of tracing the criminals. In the past, says Grey, many a, pro jected crime failed because an expert either in the course of preparation, or commission, yielding to temptation, had become muddled and bungled. In the old days one of the problems of bandit leaders was to keep their followers at all times sober. And after the crime a criminal, his tongue loos ened by liquor, was apt to drop a word which was all a detective needed to set him on a trail. There were then in all large cities ,"hang-outs" for criminals of various classes. There was no secret as to the ex istence of these "hang-outs." Policemen and detect ives knew them, knew the men who frequented them, and knew them to be "yeggs" or criminals in other lines. The criminals also knew the detectives and sometimes there was an understanding that the former would not be disturbed if they refrained from criminal activity In the particular city where the hang-out was located. . With the abolition of the saloons, the crim inals scattered from their old haunts so that a revi sion of police methods has become necessary and the revision has not yet been effected. General criminal statistics, it is true, show a , decrease in the number of crimes, but for the most part trivial ones, misdemeanors, wife-beating, petty thievery and homicides the result of Impulse. It is agreed though in the article, "The Sober Crook," that if prohibition can be made to "prohibit It will be worth all it has cost in the increased volume of great crimes Involving onl financial loss to the public. In the greater cost of affording protection to society. The lessened heart burning and misery which liquor causes will be a sufficient recompense for these losses. Critical Moments By Herbert Johnson A Lesson Never ta Be Forgotten After what happened to the ""Chicago baseball players who yielded to the temptation of the ' gam blers we think that the suspicion that some coast players are being tampered with is not well founded. We do not believe any roan who has sense enough to play baseball will ever again sell out; that is, no good effective player will, and the gamblers would have no Incentive to approach any other kind. It is true that the Chicago players escaped pun ishment under the law. Thev were acaultted-bv a.' jury and the Jury proved the worthlessness of their verdict by going out and banqueting with the de- fendants after-the trial. But there was a verdict by the American people that carried with It a pun ishment severer than any the court could have im posed and its effect will bemoro deterrent than any judgment of the court could have been. The defendants are all out of the game perma nently. There Is no league, bush or otherwise, which would dare to sign one of them, now or heneceforth. Probably Cicotte and Jackson and none of them could ever be tempted again after what they have gone through. . In that respect they are more im pregnable than they have ever been. But the public will not stand for them. : Even the lower classes of movie picture makers, who - have seemed to hesitate at nothing, have made no bid for their services. Several towns In Oklahoma and Texas have recently forbidden an aggregation of players Including the members of the "Black Sox" to play games in them. We do not think there is a sporting community in the country which would receive these discredited though acquitted players. This verdict of the people may be unjustly harsh. Though some of the players were undoubtedly guilty, others may not have been, but in acquitting those known to be guilty, the jury convicted all of them in the eyes of the people; it deprived the possibly innocent ones of ever vindicating themselves. Life Is always worth living in Phoenix but we have now come to these September days, the begin ning of nine months of the finest climate in the world, when we cling more tenaciously than ever to existence.

Charlie Chaplin's Long Journey - "From Rags to Riches." That is the title of a play in which Charlie Chaplin took part when he was an English boy twenty years ago. Not long before that, the son of actor parents, small, unim portant and poorly paid, he had a residence In an English workhouse what in this country we call a poorhouse. He had already appeared on the stage at the age of four. Four years later he was in "Yorkshire Lads' and then came "From Rags to . Riches." And Chaplin since then has traversed that whole route. He came to this country nine years ago all but penniless. Now, divested of his ridiculous mustache and shoes, he is on his way back home to the scene of his earlier privations. He is worth millions. He will be, readily admitted to his native land, because there is no danger that he will again bceome a public tharge. Chaplin Is not a great actor, but he is a grat worker and the movies gave him an opportunity the movies and the peculiar taste of the American people who frequented the movies In an early day to coin his peculiar gifts into gold. Without the movies there would have been no such opportunity and with them there would prob ably not have been the opportunity anywhere save in America. That his pictures afterward were well received in France and England is traceable to the A. E. F.. who made him popular wherever they happened to be in great numbers. Anyway, Chaplin has gone a long way, measured by money.

O., Phoenix, Ariz. A BISHOP'S JOKE Rev. J. E. Freeman, D. D., rector of Epiphany Episcopal Church, Washington, wv a life-long friend of the late David H. Greer, bishop of New York, who dearly loved an after-dinner cigar. On one occasion Dr. Freeman visited Bishop Greer at Bar Harbor, and during the visit the bishop asked him to walk down to the express office where he expected a con signment of cigars. Inquiry at the office brought the information that nothing had arrived for Bishop Greer, though he had sent an order from the bishop's house in New York for their dispatch. As he was turning away, the clerk said: "By the way. Bishop Greer, do you know where I could find Bishop Potter?" Now. Bishop Potter had been dead then, almost a year. In surprise, his successor turned back and asked: "Why do you ask?" "Well," said the clerk, "here Is a package for him." Examining the package, Bishop Greer discovered that it contained the cigars he had ordered. "There has been a mistake," he said. "These are the cigars I ordered." "But where is Bishop Potter?" urged the clerk. "Well," replied Bishop Greer, with twinkling eye, "I can't with any dcfiniteness tell you where he is, but wherever he is, I am certain that he is not smoking." , J9JJ, tgr parfrrj JoftueZ l't LIKE To ' . . , if-T MY HANDS' -Qu OH fHE NTuRE fAKrtf) fFih TrtrNT Tout?

The city siren, giving the alarm, blew 'for about 15 minutes following dis covery of the blaze. A girl in the telephone office pushed a plug down, and it wouldn't release for 15 min utes, during which time the siren kept up one continual howl. Later, when city employes went up on top of the city hall to repair the siren, it started again. The fire de partment thinking another fire had broken out, and having the shack fire under control, left a Btring of hose at the scene, end made a quick run back to the ritv hall. Refusal of the siren to behave broke up the band concert, the musicians returning to Camp Stephen D. Little before the program was completed. People living in the ouskirts of the city, hearing the siren for so long thought the entire city was burning up. Herald.

President Hedrlck Altken of the Northern Ari zona state fair, yesterday announced that this year's fair would be can--celled. This step was taken after ondeivorlng to iiave some authentic information at hand regarding the state appropriation. The state fair has been canceled and it is not the policy of the state department to authorize the holding of fairs this year. Apache and Navajo counties each voluntarily canceled their fair. Journal-Miner. Eat More Meat TUCSON Strong pleas were made for the "eat more meat and demand home grown meats" campaign by C. S. Brown, president of the state farm bureau, and William M. Cook, direc tor of the agricultural extension serv ice, at the chamber of commerce luncheon yesterday. "No one, no matter how far he lives from the center of activity, should be dependent upon the daily markets for his meat supply," said .Director uook. There are means by which meats may be preserved today that should make us all lnde pendent." Mr. Cook told of a year spent by him in the East for the purpose of studying the meat marketing prob lems. He learned, he said, that while the large packers are supposed to have a monopoly on the meat industry, that this was not a fact, and that in all communities he vis ited he found independent packing concerns doing a thriving buslnesa Star. Drilling for Oil TOMBSTONE S. N, Gordon and daughter report that L. H.

G. Matbes and the Gordons. Nogales papers have been erroneously pub lishing the fact, Mr. Gordon said, that the test well is to be put down in Santa Crus county, when as a matter ot fact it Is a recognized fact that oil the land is located in Cochise county on which it Is claimed there is a possibility to find oil. The oil rig has a capacity of 4000 feet, and drilh'ng is expected to be started within 30 or 40 days, the contract calling for 90 days in which to start the drilling.

Hermosilo and Mazatlan, Is to be inauguarted next Tuesday, Sept. Herald. "A Chinese friend," writes John Dewey in an ar ticle that appeared in "Asia," an American magazine dealing with things Oriental, "A Chinese friend to whom I owe so much that he wrould be justified in arresting me for intellectual theft, has summarized for me the stages of foreign influence in China." Since Dewey stole the points from a Chinaman I am going to steal them from him; and as he translated them from Chinese to Columbia University lingo, so I will translate them once more into common or garden English so that the elevator boy can get them. - At first the Chinese very naturally- supposed that Western nations were stronger than Eastern because of military devices. They said in their startlingly nude way, "Christ was riding on a cannon ball to China. It did not take long however ior tne quick cninese mind to clamber out of this bog of delusion, a bog, by the way, in which multitudes of Europeans and Amer icans still wallow. Then thev attributed China's backwardness to her form of government. So they made a Republic, instead of a navy. And that was no great shakes. Third, thev sought to catch up with the roaring West by cultivating applied science, engineering, and the like. So they feverishly went to building railways, . factories, and steam and electric devices. But here again they were disappointed, for the footsteps of pro gress still lingered. . Next came a wave of moral reform, lhere was a wave of all sorts of movements, such as anti-foot-bind ing societies, anti-opium crusades, anti-gambling cam paigns, and so on. But they discovered that supremacy. did not seem to come via the methods of Pussyfoot Johnson and W. F. Crafts. Then, boring still deeper, they came to another thing, which was expressed in the formula: China could not be changed without a change in fundamental ideas and beliefs.

CLIMBING THE ENCHANTED MESA By Frederio J. Haskin . WASHINGTON, D. C, Sept. 3 The Enchanted Mesa, out in New Mexico, was recently climbed for the third time, so far as the records show, and for the first time without anj other apparatus than a rope. The Enchanted Mesa is one of the many mysteries of the Southwest. It stands a few1 miles from the pu eblo of Acoma in a vast stretch of semi-arid wilderness a country of gently rolling hills timbered with pinon and cedar? Many mesas, that is, plateaus, rise above the level of this country, but the Enchanted Mesa is different from the others. It is, in fact, a thing unique. It rises to a height of 430 feet above the surrounding country, and has a per fectly flat top about the size of a largo farm. The walls are so steep that there is only one place where an ascent has ever-been attempted, and there is a sheer cliff 40 feet high oughly that it is now very difficult to find a vestige of life . that once crowned the mesa; but when it was scended In 1897 by Dr. W. F. Hodges of the bureau of ethnology. he found bits of pottery, ax heads and other articles which seemed to prove conclusively the truth of the Indian belief that the mesa was once inhabited. The first ascent of which was can find a record was mad in 1894 by Prof. William Libbey of Princeton. Impressed by the steepness and- the height of the mesa, this gentleman provided himself with a life saving apparatus. Including a mortar, with which he shot a rope clear over the mesa and pulled himself and his party to the top. Dr. Hodges did not believe such elaborate apparatus was necessary.- He took to the ground a long ladder in several sec tions and reached the top without much trouble. The ascent made last summer was unique in that nothing but a rope was used and that the expedition was Initiated by women, three of whom reached the top. A Daring Climb Misses Hlcky and Fergusson are two young women of Albuquerque, New Mexico, who make a profession of conducting parties about the coun try, explaining to them Its historical and scenic interest. Their motto is to take anyone anywhere he wants to go, so that when someone sug gested the top ot the Enchanted Mesa as a destination, they imme diately agreed to make the attempt They enlisted the aid of Richard F, Woodson, a young Albuquerque bus iness man, who is addicted to at tempting the unusual and has a rep utation for nerve and agility. He is the only man who has ever navigat ed the Rio Grande in a canoe, and now he adds to this the distinction of being the only man who ever jS Tennessee Bishop and the Eighteenth Amendment To the Editor 'of the Daily Repub lican: On the front page of this morning's issue of The Republican Bishop Gall er of Tennessee is quoted as saying. 'The writing into our constitution of the eighteenth amendment was un pardonable The original constitution adop'eJ under the presidency of George Washington by the national consti tutional convention In Philadelphia, provided a method for making amendments to that constitution as conditions might require. If any proposed amendment is put into the constitution by any other rrocess than that prescribed by the constitution itself, the supreme couri will declare it null and void.

He surveyed the face of the cliff for a few minutes and then he started up, climbing a fissure by cut ting toe holds as he went. There was one point at which the specta tors thought a fall was inavitable, and Woodson says that he. at the time, agreed with them, but he final ly reached the top. carrying a rope. All of the party, including the three women, ascended by this rope. They were accompanied - by one Indian from Acoma. named Henry Johnson, who had never been on the mesa before, although he was born In the the force and dignity of the constltu tion itself. The bishOD Is Quoted as saying. It was nothing short of hysteria tnat nut over a. restriction whlcn could not hope to suppress the evil." The bishOD had Just been quoted as de claring "the church was making headway against what evil mere was in liauor. If it had been done oy popular vote of the people, hysteria could be charged, but when it was done in tne orderly process required by the con stitution, by the two houses of con gress and a majority vote of three which must be scaled. This singular rock stands out of the desert like a great ship from the sea, out-top ping everything for miles around. But the thing w-hlch awakens most interest in it is the existence of the traditions, supported by bits of pot tery, ax heads and other remains found on and about the mesa, that many years ago before white men came to America, there was a prim itive city of Pueblo Indians on the top of it. This desolate rock was once the Gibraltar of the Southwest. It was an impregnable stronghold from which the sedentary Indians, who were on the way to civilization of their own, the ancestors of the present Pueblos, defied the Navajos, Apaches and other nomads. In the primitive warfare of that day, the Enchanted Mesa was probably a fort whi -h never could be taken except by sUu-ving the inhabitants out.
