TAKES UP PLANS TO RE THE APACHE TRAIL Action concerning the raising of 15,000 for the immediate repair of the Apache Trail was foreshadowed yesterday when the board of. directors of the chamber of commerce resolved to take the matter up with the board of county supervisors. This decision followed a report by A. T. Esgate concerning the work needed on the Trail which had been compiled, after conferences with' the supervisors, of ficials of the Salt River Valley VY ater Users' association, and railroad offi cials who have issued a ultimatum that .no traffic is to be routed by them over the Apache Trail until it has been repaired. Esgate also made a report on a conference he had with Maurice Clark, manager of the Southwestern Bankhead Highway association, with reference to a Phoenix monthly sub scription to the advertising plans of the association. This matter will be decided by a special Committee con sisting of A. T. Esgate, F. J. Elliott and W. W. Lawhon, president of the chamber of commerce. The report of Secretary ' Harry Welch on the proposed meeting of the cantaloupe", lettuce and grape grow ers of the valley was received and plans for the meeting approved. The chamber of commerce committee . to assist in this meeting includes Mar shall Humphrey, J. J. Gould and Fred Tait. - A suggestion that the public works committee should meet at weekly luncheons and that a system of ro tating chairmanships should be fol lowed was approved. A letter from P. G. Spilsbury con cerning sending delegates to the min ing congress to be held at Chicago on Oct. 17, was referred to the sec retary. Spilsbury's letter follows: "Arizona will take a leading part in this meeting and will be repre sented by several of the larger mines, both in exhibits and addresses. Our chamber of commerce is interested from a business standpoint, and I think it would be a good plan to have Phoenix represented as such at the convention by two or three business met not by engineers. It would be an opportunity to place some of the advantages of Phoenix before the public, and I think -that circulars printed here could be distributed at the convention to great advantage. 'There is no reason why Phoenix should not join in a mining conven tion, as our industries are so closely related to mining. If live representa tives could be appointed by the chamber of commerce to study the methods used in this convention which might be duplicated at our own industrial meeting in December, it would be of considerable advantage to us. We could also make arrange ment for all Arizona exhibits to be transferred from Chicago to Phoenix, as I am sure that the mines and manufacturers interested would be glad to do this work at their own expense. "Another advantage in appointing business men or farmers on the dele gation would be that they would have opportunity to learn the scope of mining in this country and to ap preciate the . large part Arizona is taking in supplying the country's needs." A letter from the San Francisco chamber of commerce asking: that representatives from this city be sent to the industrial conference at Monterey on Oct. 1, was referred to the secretary. ' John D. Loper having reported that the engineers having in charge the Cave creek dam proposal have failed to reach an agreement, it was re solved that the - president of the chamber of commerce should appoint a special committee to try to bring about an agreement. " Gen. A. M. Tuthill, commander of the American Legion here, having signified the imi-pssibility of his un dertaking the commission, it was an nounced that Capt. C. D. Jones and the secretary of the chamber of com merce will go to Prescott to confer with the vocational board there with reference to vocational work in this city. .

Heavier equipment is now being used cn the "'Phoenix," Mr. Brown said, and 1200-type engines, the heavy locomotives used on the main line, are now running between this city and Ixjs Angeles. The Santa Fe agent also report ed good progress on laying 85 pound standard rai's between Ashfork and Phoenix. All but a 20 mile stretch of the line now has been equipped with the heavy rails, which .will make it possible to use standard steel equipment and heavy main line loco motives on the branch. 'Jhe Foadbed is being ballasted, and this work is nearly completed north of Pres cott. o TO CUT SALARIES Salaries of the live stock Inspectors are due for another reduction, ac cording to Ed Stephens, secretary of the live stock sanitary board, who declared yesterday that lack of funds made it imperative that the board take this action at its meeting on Monday. Some months ago the board re duced the force and later salaries were cut to meet the decrease in the license and inspection fund out of which the inspectors are paid. The fact that there has been prac tically no movement of cattle and that the' big part of the revenue is erived from inspectors fees, makes it necessary for the board to take drastic measures, Mr. Stephens said. In his opinion it is only a question of time before the condition will be re lieved and the inspectors who were released last spring reinstated, while those whose salaries have been de- SCHEDULE GOES INTO EFFECT NEXT WIDNTH A ' new schedule giving Improved service to California points will be inaugurated, by the Santa Fe railroad early in October, it was announced yesterday by George W.

Mr. Brown also reported progress on improvements being made in the lines to Ashfork and the coast. - Under the new passenger time card the "Poenix" will leave this city at 6 p.m. and arrive in Los Angeles at 8 a.m. The eastbound train will leave Los Angeles at 4 p.m. and ar rive here at 8:45 a.m. Westbound connections will be established at Barstow tor San Francisco, arriving there at 7:3o p.m. Mr. 'Brown said the Santa Fe has completed arrangements for oiling its JYU fUl PLASTIC WATERPROOF PORTLAND CEMENT MONOLITH PLASTIC IS A STANDARD PORTLAND CEMENT having the added qualities of being plastic and water-proof.

Heard, recently re turned from an Kuropean trip, told the 100 employes of the Arizona Republican at a get-together meet ing yesterday afternoon. Kuropean customs, peculiarities and conditions were interestingly pictured by Mr. Heard. He touched upon subjects of especial interest to newspaper folk and told of visits to quaint old portions of England and Scotland. Interesting sidelights of the World Cotton conference at Liverpool and Manchester, England, also were given by Mr. Heard. He told of the splen did reception tendered the American delegates by the English officials and related many incidents of the pecu liarly formal method of reception in the largtr English cities. A visit to thf house of commons while in session was described by Mr. Heard. He told how manners of this law making body differed from those of America's house of representa- creased will receive an advance In pav. ' ! Mr. Stephens declared that cattle men had been advised of the situa tion but had been unable to get an appropriation through the legislature.

Mem bers of the British cabinet, he said, are always present, and so when any matter arises concerning gov ernmental affairs In their depart ments they are able to furnish neces sary facts or figures without delay. Much time is saved by this practice, he said. Addresses in the house are always confined to the subject mat ter, be added, the speaker reminding talkers of discrepancies in this rule whenever they wander from their an nounced topics. In conclusion, he1 told of his trip through devastated sections of Bel gium. He told of the indomitable spirit of these Belgian people, of their tremendous progress in the rehabili tation of sections laid bare bv the havoc of war. They are working overtime to the end that reconstruc tion be finished as quickly as possible 12 and 14 hours a day. ' o RECEIVED BYHUNTIN REGARD TO HIS SUCCESSOR No word concerning his successor has been received by George W. P. Hunt, United States minister to Siam. according to a letter received from the former governor of Arizona by C. W. Pike of Phoenix, who has been a close friend of Mr. Hunt, both while living at Globe and in this city. The letter is as follows: Legation of the United States of America. Bangkok, Siam. Aug. , 1921. C. W. Pike, R..F. D. 5. Phoenix, Ariz. Dear Friend: I have often thought of you and wondered how you were making it these hard times that have overtaken the world as well as our beloved Ari zona. I thought that long ere this I would be relieved, but so far I have not a word and I am Just sawing wood, as it were. However, Iam gathering lots of notes on the people, for as you know I am always inter ested in the human family. And. talking of the human family, if you get a chance read H. G. Wells' new book on the outlines of history. It is a marvelous book. Just printed this year and has created a world-wide interest. I am enclosing you a little Malay kris made out ot bone. Tou can open your mail with it. It is not for war purposes. Also an old bronze eie phant that I got when I was up In northern Siam. The Loa people used them for weights. With the advance of civilization they have, been rele gated to the position of the. rabbit foot of the Southern darkey. They are supposed to bring good luck, so I am sending it to you for good luck. Hope your family aud yourself are well. Faithfully yours, GEO. W. P. HUNT. o The aui-.ra borealis Is said to reach a height of more than 300 miles. TrS TRWt TUT.
