proper support from the citizens of Globe the
chamber of commerce here will soon occupy the
same relative position of importance as similar
organizations do in other cities.
Love thyself, and many will hate thee.
Author unknown.
That the business men in this city may better
understand several of the more important pur
poses of the Globe cliamber of commerce as di
rected by its uow secretary, something of the
success achieved by Mr. Rohrabacker in- other
cities is interesting just as this time.
In Spokane, Portland and Lewiston, the
chambers of commerce, or commercial clubs as
they are sometimes known, were made to serve
the purpose of a board of arbitration in all mat
ters concerning the public's welfare. A "public
affairs" committee was appointed to investigate
all labor troubles arising within the circles of
each organization's influence, this committee of
fering its good offices to both parties in effecting
a settlement of their disputes.
All matters concerning public contributions
wore referred by eveiy merchant to the "public
affairs" committee. This had a salutary effect;
it necessitated the promoters of every public en
tertainment, amusement, plulnntropic, charita
ble or other enterprise to receive the indorse
ment of this committee before they could expect
any support from the citizens. If the matter
was worthy, this committee would recommend
to the secretary of the chamber of commerce,
that he make such donation from the funds at
his command as was thought necessary to insure
success. On theeontrary, if any proposition
submitted wfts found unworthy after careful
consideration, it was usually noted that the pub
lic was certain to give a scant notice to the re
jected enterprise.
Tims it can be readily seen, that, if the mer
chants would make an annual contribution to the
chamber of commerce and make the amount
equal to their full yearly appropriation for such
matters as referred to above, they would be re
lieved, not only of the bothers consequent upon
the thousand and one calls made upon them dur
ing the year, but they would have united in one
mighty and successful effort in ridding the com
munity of many unworthy objects of charity. It
would also put an immediate check to the launch
ing .of many "fly-by-the-night" schemes by
which the merchants are drained nearly every
'As was stated in the Silver Belt yesterday
morning, Mr. Rohrabacker has already secured
pledges for over $2,000, and ho states that most
of this amount was forthcoming, more from the
fact that his plan as carried out in other cities
and which he is confident will be successful here,
met with the approval of all those who had sub
scribed to the chamber of commerce fund and
that other contributions have been' promised for
the same reason.
Certainly, no bettor plan than this could be
evolved, and it is thought that every merchant
in Globe will join heartily with Mr. Rohrabacker
in making it successful, by subscribing liberally
to the chamber of commerce for this purpose
Another matter which is to bo taken up by the
Globe chamber of commerce and one which has
worked out most successfully in other cities, is
that of establishing a "press bureau," the pur
pose of which is to get into as many of the
metropolitan dailies as possible, all of the news
that looks to the encouragement of investors; to
exploit trade conditions, not in a manner that
will bring in the unemployed as is often the re
sult from certain kinds of fantastic advertising,
but more to picture the advantages that actual
ly exist in many undeveloped and remunerative
A press bureau can also have (he effect of pro
hibiting a vast amount of news in getting out
that is detrimental to the best interests of the
district and which in many instances is an ex
aggeration of the true conditions. To conserve
the best interests of the community to the people
and to stifle anything that may have a harmful
result- upon local investments or those from
abroad is another object of a press bureau.
As has been said, such plans as those proposed
by Mr. Rohrabacker have been successful else
where and it is only to be supposed that, .with
The difference in the cost of living in Detroit
and just across the river in "Windsor, Canada,
furnishes a striking definition of the real mean
ing of the excessive tariff rates. The "investi
gators" in "Washington who are having such a
hard tussel to fix the blame for high prices
might with profit take a day off and run .up to
Detroit and "Windsor and look the ground over.
Prices of foodstuffs, wearing apparel and
rents average from 20 to 25 per cent more in De
troit than in "Windsor. And between the two
cities there are but 2,561 feet of water and the
Payne-Aldrich-Smoot tariff law !
The Detroit man is "protected," and the
Windsor man-isn't.
By not being "protected," the "Windsor man
pays $15 for a suit of clothes that the Detroit
man will find it difficult to duplicate in quality
for $25. What the Windsor man is escaping in
this instance is the Payne-Aldrich-Smoot tariff
tax of 41 cents a pound on good all-wool clothes,
and the additional tax of GO per cent of the value
of the goods.
While reading the following comparative
prices, Mr. Reader, keep in mind that Detroit
and Windsor are practically one city, that all in
the world that separates them save the "upward
revision" tariff wall is a half mile of water
