Pueblo, Colorado
The Main Question
This morning The Chieftain suspends its review in
detail of the provisions of the proposed flood conservan
cy law to consider the position and course of those who
are actively opposing that measure. There are not many
of these opponents, but they are working actively to
gain others to their way of thinking, and they arc the
more noticeable because, in such a matter as this, it
might bo supposed that public sentiment in Pueblo wonld
be unanimous.
It is, however, extremely rare that public sentiment
is nnanimous upon any question and instead of feeling
aorprise at the opposition to the flood conservancy bill, it
would be equally in order to be surprised that there is
■ot more opposition to that measure.
• • • •
If the opposition to the proposed flood conservancy
law is sincere it must be based upon one of two proposi©
tiona. Either these persons are opposed to flood protec
tion as a general principle, or they are opposed to this
particular bill. The active opponents of this law. if they
are honest with themselves and toward their fellow citi
zens, ought to make it plain whether they are fighting
flood protection, or whether they are fighting this law.
Opposition to flood protection is logical and reason
able. There is such a thing as a community interest. Pu
eblo as a city would be henefitted by flood protection,
and therefore every citizen of Pueblo would be benefited
b7 flood protection.
There is also such a thing as individual interest.
There is good reason why every citizen should be taxed
for a community benefit, but there is no reason why any
citizen should he tJixed for the individual benefit of
another citizen’s property.
There is no good reason why the people of one part
of Pueblo should bo taxed to save the property of other
people in another part of Pueblo from flood loss, damage
or risk.
There is good reason why all the people of Pueblo
should be taxed to save Pueblo from flood.
Every person in Pueblo has the right to consider
his individual interest, as well as bis community interest
and to decide Tor himself how far he is willing to pons
a citizen of Pueblo to protect Pueblo’s interests. He
has a right to express his opinion upon this matter and
to endeavor to bring others to his way of thinking.
• • • •
Such opponents of flood protection, however cannot
fairly object if they suffer the consequences of their
unsocial position. They have a right to think that their
individual interests are superior to tho community in
terests. but if the opinion of the majority is strongly
the other way, the position of the minority is likely to
he nnpleasant.
No city can grow and prosper whose strength is con
stantly wasted in factional or sectional quarrels. From
the standpoint of the city’s interests “contrary minded’*
citizens are undesirable citizens.
• • • •
The ease is quite different for those opponents of
the proposed conservancy law who declare that they ar**
in favor of flood protection, but nre opposed to this
particular Jaw.
Supposing that this declaration is made honestly ;»nd
that opposition to the law is not a more cloaking of op
position to flood protection, it is in order to n-k how
a better law could have hern procured.
Tn the judgment of The Chieftain no better selection
could have been made thnn wns mado for the committee
of Twelve. Heun. Duke, Devine, Taub, Johnson.

Martin may he fairly said to bo representative of the 1
community interests of Pueblo. There is no question of
their ability, their intelligence, their honesty, or of their
sincere desire to.sene the best interests of the city and
its people. Tn cooperation with the city commissioners
and the city attorney, and with the help cf engineering
and legal experts, this law has teen prepared. It is not
a perfect law. No laws arc perfect. It is a law that is
framed to meet situations of unusual stress and it has,
unusual features.
Another Committee of Twelve, equally intelligent. 1
equally honest, equally sincere in the desire to serve,
the public interests, would undoubtedly have written a(
different law. a law that might have been better in some
of its provisions, a Uur that probably would have been
worse in other provisions. j
If the men who are now active in opposition to this
law had been members of a Committee of Twelve, all
honestly striving to get flood protection for Pueblo a=
a matter of community interest, it is to be presumed
that their assent would have been given to that cnmtnis- j
tee’s report, and that the law approved by them, whether!
better or worse than this committee’s law would have
represented their best idea of what should be done forj
Pueblo. % t
• • • •
Some opposition to the present proposed law may*
have its origin with those who feel slighted because
they were not chosen as members of the Committee ofj
Twelve, or because they were not called into consultation,;
as cntrineerinc or lejral experts, but this kind of opposi
tion wonld have had to be- met in any event.
The opposition that arises from a sincere belief that |
some provisions of Ihe proposed law are objectionable j
is not greater than the opposition that wonld have arisen ,
to any law. however prepared.
The opposition to this law that is urged because of;
opposition to all flood protection is insincere and dis-
I honest to the degree that it is based upon motives that
are concealed and misrepresented. \
• • • •
The present local situation, as The Chieftain see c i
I it, is that the people of Pueblo desire flood protection
I ns a community interest.
The people of Pueblo are willing to be taxed for'
this community interest in proportion to the benefit)
! they receive as citizens and as individuals.
The proposed conservancy law i« at least h« good a
law a» could have been obtained anywhere or in any way.
The sincere and honest opposition to that law is
| not greater than would be aroused against any flood prn
! tcction law.
Public sentiment in Pneblo is strongly in favor of
; the enactment of this conservancy law as promptly as
|w»s.siblc. Practically, that sentiment is unanimous,
i Particular plam of Hood protection and the in-
I numerable details of those plans, may well be set aside
j for discussion later, according to the ample provisions
of the proposed law.
The strongest fight that is being made ngninst the
1 American beet sugar industry i*j not mado by foreigners
i hut by Americans. A sample argument runs as follows:
’’American citizens have built up an industry in Cuba
! which represents today nt least a billion dollars, while
the beet sugar investors in this country have a business
i which is valued nt two hundred millions.”
i The best answer to this argument is that a dollnr
invested by Americans in American industry is entitled
to more consideration than fivo American dollars Invcst
| cd in foreign industry.
American investments in Cnba represent a prefer
ence f«*r cheap tropical labor rather than highly paid
American labor. They represent a preference for Unban
soil rather than American soil. They represent Cuban
development rather than American development. They
j rc|n-cscnt taxable values for* Cuba rather than taxable
values for the United States.
The Chieftain cannot -ee that it is good business,
: from the American viewpoint to destroy one dollar in
vested in Colorado in order to safeguard the investment
[ of five dollars in Cuba.

WASHINGTON, I>. <?.. March 16 ,
Nearly mil of tho 2,000,000 members of
the A. E. F. who passed thru Brcat on
their way home will fool a personal in-
Jterest Ir. news concerning Brig. Gen.
! Smcdloy D. Butler of tho Marino corps. I
| Since' cleaning up Brest and com’-ng
• home, Gen. Butler has been an enthu- i
elastic worker In tho campaign to bring |
the Marino Corps to a high state ot
• efficiency and economy of administra
tion. As a result of his arduous labors.
signs of Illness appeared and about a
I month ago Gen. Butler went to the
| hospital for observation and treatment,
i It was feared at first that he was suf
fering from appendicitis, but thorough
examination disclosed that he had no
; specific ailment, his ill-health being
duo entirely to overwork. It is expect
!ed that in a short time he wIU be in
. good condition again,
i There are few men in the United
| States or in the world who are known
jby sight to so many of their country
men as Gen- Butler. His history and
exploits are a common topic to multi-
I tudes of men who regard him as an |
{admired personal friend. General Rut- 1
ler’s opportunity of making the ac- |
Iqualntanee of so many thousands of j
men and of winning their unstinted,
praise and friendship came when he {
was in command of the great embark- J
lation camp at Brest. In less than s*x
(months he changed the camp from a
■ sink-hole of disease, dirt, and discom
fort. into a comfortable, well paved,
well lighted city of tents, with munici
pal water and sewage systems that
■ would have been a credit to any per
jmanent city of similar size. Thus he
[saved thousands of lives and endeared]
himself for life to thousands of j
j doughboys.
j In tho slang of the soldier, he was
; the commanding general at th© Battle
jof Brest—and that was a real battle (
He performed prodigies of labor. Hi**
working day was oftei\ 21 hours long.

stamped themselves indelibly on tho |
minds of almost every man who went .
thru the camp. Ask any veteran who '
took ship at Brest what impressed him
most there, and he will reply unhesi
tatingly "Hmedley Butler!"
Many will recall how he determined
shortly after his arrival at Brost that
his men should not sleep in the mud.
He marched at tho head of a column
of all of the men in the camp to a pile
of lumber which official red tapo had
decreed should not )<• touched- He and
ra h of his men took from th© pile a
duckboard, six feet long and four feet
j wide, to serve as beds. On the way
I back he was arrested by a military po
liceman. and had a threat deal of ex
plaining to do afterward, but In th«
meantime his men slept on the boards

President American Society for Thrift
One occasionally comes in contaofc with objections
to thrift on the ground that it hurts business. The state
ment. sometimes is made that all that is needed to make
business generally grod today is for people to spend
more money.
This is a subject that deserves careful analysis and
the most thoughtful consideration. Reekless spending
upon the part of the public would stimulate some kind
of business, but it would be only a temporary and super
ficial acceleration. It would not be fundamental and
would be followed by a corresponding reaction.
Immediately following the war this country exper-
icnccil a |R*nod of economic intoxication. Everything was abnormal. Spec
illation, spending, extravagance and luxury knew no bounds Then came
the reaction, out of which wc are just now emerging.
It is true that there should he more spending of money by the people
of the country today, and that such activity would help the general busine*
situation. But such increased expenditures should he along prudent and
thrifty lines. Spending in a wasteful way will not bring substantial help,
but spending along constructive and uplifting ways will put more men to
work and start the wheels of industry turning in a normal way.
It must be borne jn mind that any activities that are fundamentally
wasteful are unworthy of encouragement. And the whole question of spend
ing centers on the point of whether one’s outgo of money is constructive or
To discourage practices of thrift and invite the wild, free spending of
money, merely for the purpose of helping business is indeed poor counsel.
we have already seen~snch general practices would only lead us into gren'er
What the nation needs i«s a broad understanding of the kind of thrift
which means thriving and getting ahead.
