Greenlee County, the young est county in the state, yet one of the richest and indeed a first class county has the lowest tax rate—sl.Bo An alphabet reformer wants to do away with superfluous letters. The public would be grateful if he would start in by eliminat ing, G—R A—F —T. A steel bridge across the Gila at Duncan, and an automobile road through the valley and all the way to Clifton the county seat where a $2,000,000 smelter is now being constructed and a $50,000 courthouse is going up are some of the starters for 1912. A Missouri editor refuses to publish obituary notices of people who living, failed to subscribe to his paper. He'says: “People who do not take their home pap er are dead anyway, nnd their mere passing away is of no news value.—Ex. The dream of Duncan for many years is about to become a reali ty—a bridge across the Gila River. Last October the taxpayers of Greenlee County voted for such a bri H ge to the amount of $16,- 000. Bids were in due time ad vertised for and last Monday the contract for the construction was awarded. This means that with in the next few months the treacherous Gila will be conquer ed so far as travel and traffic from either side is concerned. r i he Casa Grade Times is the latest product in Arizona journa lism. The Times is edited and managed by Evans T. Richarson in the famously historic town of Casa Grande on the Southern Pacific between Tucson and Ma ricopa. The paper is a neatly printed 7 column six page sheet creditably edited and the mecha nical part is faultless. The vast amount of advertising carried shows that Casa Grande is coming alive. May the Times be fully appre ciated by the people who are to share in the efforts put forth by Bro. Richardson, if so the Times will prosper. And, why should it not prosper. The Clifton-Duncan road is completed; the road Superintend : ent’s report will show that the contract has been complied with and that a mile of extra work has been done above what was called ! for. Tnis road, is of inestimatable ; value to Greenlee county, and, | most especially to this valley. Every business man in this town will be benefited by the construc tion of this highway, every far mer will receive direct benefit from it; and when the business men and farmers are benefited that includes nearly everybody; because our stockmen are nearly all of them either farmers or arc interested in business as well as stockraising. The mining in dustry is certainly benefited by such a highway. Os course such a r.fad could not please every body in location or construction, that is not expected, but on the whole it is .a Public benefit ol of which all should be proud. The work is done by home men, home supplies used and Greenlee county' has the road and the money is at home. This roadbed will be improved from time to time as necessity demands until the trip from here to the county seat will be only a day’s drive will; a loaded wagon. A copy of Frederick Ras kin’s book, “The American Gov ernment’’, has found its way to us, through the courtesy cl the El Paso Herald, and has been read with a great deal of interest. Frederick Haskin is a regular contributor to the Herald and an int- resting article of his apperar in the Herald each day. The book gives a clear, concise and comprehensive review of the actual work done by the several departments of the Federal Gov ernment of the United States. The writer’s grasp of the subject is evidenced on every page of the 30 chapters, comprisiog about 400 pages, arid the reader who would be'informed on the opera tions of his government will find this presentation a .‘dependable source of information. The book is full cloth bound and contains many photographs picturing Uncle Sam at work in his different departments.. Write the El Paso Herald about it. Perfect Time Pieces .Does your watch vary ten sec conds in any twenty-four hours? Does it vary thirty seconds in a week, whether in hot or cold weather or if held upside down or other unusual positions? The watches of the employes of the Southern Pacific Company must show such a record as the above. At any time that they may'show such variations they must be re gulated. But this regulation is only a part of the tests that are made of the time pieces of the Southern Pacific employes. Every employe, who in any way comes in contact with the opera tion of trains on the Southern Pacific be he superintendent, signal man or section foreman, is required to own a watch, so ad justed as to not exceed a varia tion of ten seconds in any twen jty-four hours. The examination of each man’s watch-includes the subjecting of the instrument' to a s’evei • t st cf ten perntui. e ; nd the-placing cf the watch in sever al caffe-wa, p'gu,ums in an en deavor to discover r. vrriath n.

The watches must be compared with a regulator evwry tv.o weeks and the watch leaned by thp jeweler during ■ irs must be equally as good as the one being repaired. The employes of the Southern Pacific Company have taken an active interest in the “time ser vice” work, as is manifested in the report of the watch inspec tion for the first quarter of the present year. Within the juris diction of E. E. Calvin, vice pre sident and general manager, 6223 watches are regularly inspected. Durig the first quarter of 1911 5632 watches were compared with ; standard regulators and the gen eral average of the time kept by I these watches shows a record of (nearly perfect.

SOLD IN TOWN F 2 j Enter Protest GENTLEMEN. The undersigned’, as taxpayers ( of this county, enter our protest j against the payment of any mon- i ey to the contractor of the new I road that is being njade between ; York Flat and Duncan, until it shall have been inspected and! certified to by the County or some other competent engineer, who j will be capable of deciding wheth- \ er the work has been done in compliance with the specifications ; that the contract was advertised under and presumably let. We understand that all fills; have been made, and where the 1 culverts are to go, the contractor; claims he has completed his con-1 tract, and the culverts that have : been ordered by your Board for this road are still to be put in. We believe that it is your in-: tention to give the County its money’s worth in the construc tion of this rood, but unless it is received by a competent person, several thousand dollars of the taxpayers an. nay will be thrown to the birds, and we believe that, every comity official 'connected] with the transaction will be liable : to the County aval on his official J bond.

The accompanying 1 resolution has been unanimously adopted by the Mayer Democratic Club. We ask your co-operation and aid in this movement to drive from the political arena of this state the people’s most persistent foe of progressive legislation, and j while we have the . national re publican craft in our state disabl ed, let us not only destroy it but j obliterate it from the political sea, that nothing will be left to retard the wave of political reform.
