Clarence Woodbury, Head of Ar
izona Department, Reports 400
Dealers in Property Have
Taken Out State Licenses
(From Wednesaay's Dally?
Clarence P. Woodbury, crctary
of tlie state real estate department,
is in Prescott on official duties in
connection with the department.
The real estate license act was
passed at the last session of the leg
islature in the spring of the year. It
requires all brokers and salesmen en
gaged in the selling of real estate,
loaning money on realty or collect
ing rents, as a whole or partial voca
tion, to take out a license and furnish
bond to the state.
The real estate license act is noth
ing new. This act has been suc
cessfully passed by the real estate
men and is in effect in a great many
states in the union today. The act
is held to be not only a benefit to
the buyer of real estate, but is a
protection to the real csfate operator
himself, in acting as a curb to the
unscrupulous and unrestrained.
Mr. Woodbury reports- that over
400 licenses have been issued in the
state for both brokers and salesmen
so far, and in the past few months
has visited Tucson, Nogales, Doug
las, Bisbce, Casa Grande, Yuma,
Prescott and a good many of the
smaller towns besides.
Invitation Visit Prescott and
Whipple Sent Marshal Foch
by Patients, Chamber of Com
merce and Governor
(From "Wednesday's Daily)
Efforts to induce Marshal Ferdi
nand Foch to include a visit to .Pres
cott and the. 600 ex-service ineii-.at
Whipple Barracks, in his itinerary to
the Grand Canyon from Los Ange
les next month, yesterday resulted in
sending ot two tclcgrapnic invita
tions to the former commander-in-chief
of the allied armies, one from
Governor Thomas E. Campbell to
Marshal Foch and one from the
chamber of commerce to Senators
Henry Ashurst and Ralph H. Cam
eron and Representative Carl Hay
dcu. The chamber of commerce
message requested Arizona's repre
sentatives in congress to place form
ally before the French embassy,
Prescott's invitation to Marshal
Poch. Plans to bring Marshal Foch
to Prescott were formed by patients !
and personnel at the post, meeting
with co-operation of the chamber of
commerce and local ex-service men's
organizations. The suggestion that
Marshal Foch 'be induced to include
Prescott in his itinerary when he
comes to the Grand Canyon from
Los Angeles on December 5, origi
nated with Superintendent George
Shea of the Pioneers' Home, and M.
B. Hazcltine, vice-president of the
Bank of Arizona.
Yesterday morning telegrams were
sent to Marshal Foch by the Fort
Whipple patients' committee. Col
onel Robert H. Stanley, commanding
officer, Mayor Morris Goldw'atcr of
Prescott, the American Legion and
the Veterans of Foreign Wars, urg
ing the allied commander-in-chief to
visit the 700 disabled men recover
ing from disabilities incurred in serv
ice under the allied flags.
Expectations that Marshal Foch
will accede to the request of the ex
service men and the organization
which have backed them up in wir
ing, are confidently held at Fort
Whipple. It is felt that Marshal
Foch would appreciate the effect of
his visit on the morale of the men
striving to regain the health they
lost in fighting for France and the
allied cause. Marshal Foch's intincr
ary, if it includes Prescott; will be
as follows:
Leaving Washington and reaching

Pre-arranged inter-lodge activities
of the Elks here last night were can
celled and the -session of Prescott
lodge No. 330 was turned into a
lodge of sorrow. Two honored
members of the fraternity had been
summoned before the Exalted Ruler
of the universe.
Many members of the Jerome
lodge had come to town for the
festivities that had been arranged as
a courtesy to the Verde valley
brothers. But there were no festivi
ties while two departed brothers were
eulogized by speakers who were
suddenly called upon to express the
sentiments that almost a generation
of association with the two past
chiefs made more appropriate than
the planned ceremonies.-
District Deputy Grand Exalted
Ruler Morris Goldwater, himself a
past exalted ruler of this lodge; Ex
alted Ruler A. J. Herndon; Charles
Connor, past ruler of the Jerome
fraternity, and Ross Cunningham, its
present secretary, spoke in descript
ive phrase of the departed.
Candidates for initiation, a dozen
of whom were to have been made
members, were dismissed until the
next regular meeting. The banquet,
which was to have been the final
pErt of the night's entertainment,
was cancelled.
Members of the visiting lodge were
given dinner by Robert Birch, who
had made great preparations for din
ing nearly 200, at the St. Michael
cafe. The dining room had been
decorated with the national colors
and emblems of the lodge and the
lights shaded with purple. But a
pall of sadness was cast over the
scene Yet, those who had come
from afar were cared for and none
went away unsatisfied.
The lodge prepared to conduct
services for its past officers, in the
event burial is to be held here. A
resolution was passed last night to
devote the Elks theater to the serv
ices and that place will be at. the
disposal of cither the Elks or the
Masons, in case the latter take part
in the services "for' Mr. Jaeger, who
was a member here. C. E. Gentry,
B: H. Smith and Ed Meek, all close
friends of the deceased, were made a
committee to arrange for the obsequies.

Eduardo Gomez Pleads Guilty to
Transporting Liquor and Gets
Sixty Days in Jail
(Fiom Wednesaay's Dally)
It was almost as though greased
skids had been placed beneath the
person of Eduardo Gomez, with the
delivery end of them pointed at the
door of the county jail.
Gomez, who was arrested late last
week at Ash Fork by Deputy Sheriff
Norman Nellis, was accused of bring
ing in sundry potables in a suit case.
He said he merely wanted to bring
over some stuff to enliven the begin
ning of the holiday season. Scnor
Gomez frankly admitted the act but
repudiated the intent, that is to
break the law, and he was sent to
spend 60 days in the county jail,
which will just about cover the well
known holiday season.
Gomez's plea of guilty was made
before Judge Sweeney at noon yesterday.
Judge Sweeney Hears Closing
Testimony in Surety Com
pany's Suit Against City for
1 Bond Withheld under Contract
(From ryedncsday's Daily)
Whether the "freezing clause" in
the city's paving contract covering
the improvement of Mt. Vernon
street invalidates or makes' good a
bond for $5,000 will be determined
by Superior Judge John J. Sweeney
between now and Friday, as a result
of the wind-up yesterday of a two
day trial of the Southern Surety
company's case against the city.
The city's case was put in by City
Attorney Alfred H. Gale yesterday.
Testimony was taken from City
Manager John H. Robinson, Coun
cilniau A. L. Smith, J. W. Waara,
former city surveyor, and others, and
from records.
The Surety company claims the
bond under its contract and the city
resists the claim on the ground it
was properly withheld as a bonus for
non-completion of the work during
the winter months. It will be re
called that the work was started and
then delayed pending settlement of
the affairs of the Southwest Con
tracting company which was over
taken by financial difficulties during
its work here. The bonding com
pany then assumed the job and it
was completed by the company's con
tractors, Miller & White of Yuma.
Neil C. Clark represents the plain
tiff bonding company.
Petition for Return of Alleged Il
legally Seized Property Is De
nied by Court in Case Against
Lee Herring, Transporting
(From Thursdays Dally)
The appeal of Lee W. Herring for
the return of liquor said to have been
seized by the authorities, was not
granted yesterday by Superior Judge
John J. Sweeney, following the argu
ment of a petition by C. C. Norton,
Herring's counsel, and dignified sil
ence on the part of the legal repre
sentatives of the state.
Unlike two other recent cases in
which the authority of the county
peace officers was held to have been
exceeded when they confiscated
liquor as evidence, the Herring case
was permitted to remain in statu quo
by the criminal court.
Herring was arrested, charged with
transporting intoxicants. The liquid
"evidence" as described in the peti
tion for- return, consisted of one gal
lon earthen jug of distilled alcoholic
liquor and one pint flask of distilled
alcoholic liquor. There were other
pieces of property undescribed but
merely mentioned in the petition.
The state submitted the case with
out verbal or written , argument and
Judge Sweeney ruled (that-the tfcti;
tion would be denied.

Some Explanation of Higher
Government Costs Accepted
and Some Not by Taxpayers'
Organ; Stave Off Bankruptcy
fKrom Thursdays Dally)
A critical analysis of taxation in
Arizona is compiled in the last issue
of the Arizona Taxpayers' Magazine,
received here yesterday. The sum
mary includes a table of taxes by
counties, showing that of the 14 sub
divisions of this state, Graham is
raising the least money this yean
$148,359.22, and Maricopa the most
$1,314,647.01. Yavapai county ranks
twelfth with $741,502.68.
Taxes have risen greatly since the
year 1915, according to the compila
tion, showing a progressive increase
during the six years. The raise be
tween 1920 and 1921 is about $800,
000 and the total in the state is $6,
894,897.48 for the current year.
Of this the general fund is to re
ceive $1,983,074.74. The road fund
gets $1,204,844.67; the school fund is
enriched to the extent of $2,501,587.58
and the bond and. interest redemption
fund is $1,205,390.49.
During the same period there was
an increase in state valuation from
$420,432,411.90 to $830,536,582 or
nearly 100 per cent.
Many of the increases in taxation
are conceded to be regular ones,
arising out of expected hoists in ex
penses and greater volume of official
business. Not all of the increases
are thus accepted, however. The
summary raises a question concerning
the great increase tripling of direct
levy school taxes.
Public bankruptcy is said to be a
condition j unknown" to history, and
it is declared that "a halt must be
called before that breaking point is
reached in Arizona."
Yavapai County Sound
Due to the payment of all but two
of the large accounts for taxes in
this county, County Treasurer Frank
E. Smith assures the Journal-Miner
that delinquency, which might have
been expected to rim high -this year,
is less than 5 per cent. A drop of
1 per cent was noted since the last
report made by Mr. Smith, for pub
lication. This is in glittering contrast with
the condition of Maricopa county last
year when approximately 50 per cent
of the taxes were delinquent.
The figure for Yavapai county's
delinquency is higher on the basis of
individual taxpayers, " but owing to
the prompt payment of virtually all
of the big accounts, the money per
centage is quite small in view 0(f con
tinued depression.
Criminal Cases Will Be Cleaned
Up at Court Session Early
Next Month; Only Minor Law
Infractions and Liquor Cases
Criminal cases now pending will
be considered in jury sessions begin
ning December 6, according to a call
published in the Journal-Miner yes
terday morning by the criminal divis
ion of the superior court, Judge
Sweeney presiding.

fractions of the liquor laws and other
minor matters will come up during
the session for wrich 75 jurors will
be drawn.

(Associated Press)
BERLIN, Oct. 30. (By Mail.)-
Why Germany was beaten is again a
topic of acrimonious newspaper con
troversy now that the third anniver
sary of the collapse of the German
war machine is at hand.
Opinions are as violently expressed
and as widely divergent, as ever. An
impetus to bitter recrimination has
been given by an interview with
Field "Marshal von Hindenburg,
which appeared the other day in the
Hamburg Tageblatt. In it, the aged
army chief once more affirmed his
belief i" the "dagger thrust in the
back of the, army" the treacherous
break-down of civilian support for
the military leaders.'" '
The sequel has been the publica
tion of a mass of official material,
notably by the Vorwaerts, to show
that it was certainly not the civilians
who lost the war.
Major Deutelmoscr, the former
chief of tlie official German press
bureau, writes in the Berlin Tagc
blatt maintaining that the blind faith
of the Gennan nation in its military
leaders 'continued to tlie bitter end;
in fact, until it was plain to all that
the military idols had come to grief
irreparably, "because they were just
soldiers and not statesmen, which
was the deplorable mistake made by
the people at home." says the writer.
Tl.c extreme radical press is even
more bitter in its denunciation of
the military failure. The Freihcit
publishes a long article to show that
the German people were systemati
cally deceived; that they had no con
ception of the true situation at the
front, and that the supreme army
command deliberately .spread false re
ports. Furious denials of these allegations
come from the conservative organs.
The Tageszeitung wrathfully accuses
the "vile agitators" who, it says, had
long ago whetted the weapon of
treachery; while Count Reventlow in
the Abendblatt declares that it was
neither Foch's genius nor the Brit
ish blockade that overcame Germany,
but "the venomous work of deserters
and traitors behind the German front
who had been infected by the pacifist"
and revolutionary virus."
A'dolph Koester, a former minister
in the socialist cabinet, who says
that the dagger thrust story is "one
of the most insidious and stupid of
war legends," produces official evi
dence from reports of commanding
generals, themselves, that the Ger
man army was well and truly beaten;
that it had no efficient reserves; that
the allies were incontestably superior
in men and material, and that the
British blockade had Germany by
the throat. "No bolshevism, and no
pacifism had anything to do with
that," the writer declares.
There is no sign that Germans ever
will agree on the question of why
they were defeated.
13.000 ORE AT
Discovery of gold-bearing ore as
saying $3,000, a ton was made by R.
M. Hanson early this week on
ground 1,500 feet north of the main
workings of the group of three
claims on lower Slate creek known
as the Golden Eagle group, accord
ing to word brought to Prescott by
Hanson yesterday. Ha'nson last night
said the ore was contained in an out
cropping 3 feet wide, on a new loca
tion on the first north extension of
the Golden Eagle.
P'lans were made yesterday for de
velopment of the discovery by a
crew of three men. A tunnel will be
driven to tap the vein, which is the
same as that running through the
three claims of the Golden Eagle
group proper. Silver values of the
outcropping are small, assaying only
$4 or $5.
