I am der German Kaiser, Der Emperor, I am. You know I licked dem Belgians, Und ,mit bullets filled Russia full; Und I vill vip France und Italy Und blow up Jonny Bull. Now for all dem other nations I don't gif a tinkers' damn, If you just be my pardner Und lick dot Uncle Sam. You know I got dem submarines, All Europe knows so veil, But dot man Edison got a ratent now Vot blows dem all to hell. Now, Gott, if you do dis, Den you I vill always love; Und I vill be der emperor of earth, Und you der emperor above. But Gott, if you refuse dis, Tomorrow night at 'leven, I'll call mine Zeppelins out Und declare var on Heaven. I vouldn't ask dis from you, But it can plainly be seen, Dotven Edison pushes dot but ton, I got no submarines. -Ex. Congressman Carl Hayden ad dressed a hot letter to the Secre tary of War a few days ago, on the unfair quota for soldiers re quired from Arizona under the selective draft, and the equally unfair apportionment of men to the reserye officers' training camps, lie cans tne secretary s attention to the selective draft act wherein it says the population shall be the basis for determining the quotas, and no mention is made of an estimated population. Hayden gets under the Secretary's hide once more by asking why the estimated population of 1915 was used as the basis of assign ments to the officers' training camps, and another and different estimate of the population was used in drafting for soldiers. Then he shows up the injustice to Arizona, wherein under the 1915 estimated population New Mexico was given 83 men for the training camps while Arizona was given only 52; and when they got ready to draw soldiers they made a new estimate of population, in creasing Arizona over 50, and reducing New Mexico 25, upon which basis Arizona has to fur nish 4478 men and New Mexico gets off with 3756. We are glad Mr. Hayden has woke up even though it is too late to right our wrongs, and bis peppery letter may stir him to greater activity hereafter in protecting -the inter est of the state. The ease with which New Mexico grabbed more than her eqnitable proportion of the training camp assignments, dodged her full responsibility in furnishing soldiers by juggling the population estimates is proba bly due to the keen activity of her senators, Fall and Jones, whose interest is centered in their state; while one of Arizonas sen ators loves to talk to the senate gallery, shake his raven locks, and attune his ear for the ap plause, and the other senator puts in his time maudling over his cups, awaiting summons by the party whip to appear on the sen ate floor to cast his vote. With a brace of such representatives Arizona can expect just such re sults as she is getting. We can imagine an astute fellow like Senator Jones hiring the rabble to fill the senate gallery and fur nish applause, and start the Ari zona orator to talking about "this grand and glorious country of ours," and then slip out quietly! to grab off the draft grapes for New Mexico. Still, there are people in the state who think our Henry holds in his lily-white hands the destiny of Arizona. However, we would prefer Geo. W. P. Hunt with his blunt, un polished style for results that count. Winslow Mail.
