If Phoenix goes dry April 18th
they still have the Roosevelt dam
to fall back on or into.
Roosevelt took a passing hack
at Reno, Nevada's divorce colony.
He said they didn't need the
'Tis said and sad 'tis, 'tis said,
that Taft has not said anything
about the hood for our state in his
message to congress. Easter's
coming on, too.
Congress convened Tuesday.
Champ Clark is now the Czar, the
autocrat, boss and a few other
mean names. Cannon is merely a
laymember and Mann is the re
publican floor manipulator.
From an outsider's point of
view, Phoenix people's feelings
will be sadly ripped asunder when
the dry and wet war is over on
the 18th. Both sides are cross
arid are saying all. manner of nasty
things about each other.
A brand ad in a stock paper that
reaches the stockmen of Northern
Arizona saves many an animal to
stockmen. A brand in The Sun
reaches all the principal stockmen
from Kingman to Holbrook and
south to Pine. That's what counts,
aside from being represented by a
paper always looking to help out
A wise young lady teacher in
the Flagstaff kindergarten dis
covered that the library paste used
in kindergarten work was disap
pearing rapidly. It looked so
good the little folks thought it was
good to eat. This young lady
quietly mixed- in a reasonable
amount of quinine and it cured
the paste appetite quickly.
If the Santa Fe continues to
add more restrictions as to just
how, who and when a person may
be granted the privilege pf riding
on the limited train, it will be
necessary for the person conterrf
plating the arduous task of se
curing passage, to take a corres
pondents school course in just
how to accomplish the feat.
Disarmament of nations and
submitting disputes to interna
tional court, now being discussed
seriously, is evidence that all na
tions are becoming more and
more civilized. There is no more
need of shooting up a whole lot of
citizens over a dispute than there
is in one lugging around his private
artillery to shoot up someone who
does not agree with him. Same
thing only on a larger scale.
The Sun again breaks the record
for Northern Arizona by printing
a twelve page paper with a full
circulation of 1000 on its books.
Every effort is being made to
make The Sun a paper of interest
to the people of Northern Arizona.
There is no attempt to fill up. its
columns with what the Bojum of
Swhathell or some other sea port
is about to do. The live news of
personal interest to our readers is
our main idea. Our advertising
columns contain live advertise
ments and there are no dead .dnes
to (ill up space.
We want more subscribers; we
want to make the paper bigger
and better every week, and we

The new reservoir scheme for
the city seems to have struck a
popular chord among the citizens
of Flagstaff. A reservoir of equal
capacity of the old reservoir could
be built at a reasonable cost and
in a short time. It should be done
this summer by all means. If the
contest between the Santa Fe and
tha city continues for the next
twenty years, all of Flagstaff's bus
iness interests will be amply pro
tected in the meantime and new
enterprises will be assured of
plenty of water during the two or
three cold months of the year.
The suit against the Santa Fe will
come up at the April term of court
but it is doubtful - if there will be
any settlement of the case until
it reaches the supreme court.
Their proposed agreement with
the city has, undoubtedly gone
glimmering and it is up to Flag
staff to go ahead with their own
enterprise. A survey has b'een
made near the present reservoir,
where the city owns forty acres of
land. All that is .needed now is
to move ahead; waiting is a slow
game and only winds up in dis
appointment. The people are for
the new reservoir.
A great many people have en
thusiastically approved the per
manent road idea mentioned last
week in The' Sun, and expressd
the hope that the supervisors of
this county would purchase a stone
crusher and commence active op
erations along that line this sum
mer, at least spend all available
funds possible to start th6 work
on a fixed plan, to be added to
from year to 'year as road funds
It is certainly the right idea and
one that should be worked out
and boosted along by the people.
The amount of permanent good
accomplished ii a few years would
be astonishing and as fast as re
sults are shown, the more advo
cates the plan would have. The
vicinity of Flagstaff has many at
tractions to offer tourists and vis
itors, and good roads at all sea
sons of the year is an asset Flag
staff can ill afford to overlook.
The prosperity of a town is Jiot
guarded by the wealth of its in
habitants, but by the' uniformity
with which the business interests
pull together when any important
undertaking is to be accomplished.
A man with a thousand dollars at
his command and a love for his
town in his heart can do "more for
the upbuilding of it than a mil
lionaire who locks up his capital
and snaps his fingers at home
