OUB STANDARD Right, Truth, Justice in all our dealings with the public;
political, social and industrial; a sence of responsibility to our constituen
cy and our loyalty to the interests of Holbrook and Navajo county.
Business Instead of Politics
All over the country, as new budgets of public expendi
ture are being planned for school districts, city, county
or state government, an insistent demand is arising for a
lowering of tax levies.
The agitation is not to reduce efficiency or service to
the people, but to cut out inefficency, waste, duplication
of offices, useless commissions and extra help, which has
been the chief cause of adding the disproportionate bur
den of overhead to government in comparison to the
growth in wealth and population of the average commu
Banks Protect Community
Never were banks doing a greater service to the com
munity than during this era of lawlessness when robber
ies of all kinds are prevalent.
The less money a person carries with him or keeps in
in his house, the better. Petty stealing, burglary and
robbery are among the most despicable crimes, and are
usually committed, not by people who are hard up, in the
sense of being out of employment or funds, but by pro
fessional crooks who prey off the industry of others.
Altogether too much public sympathy is wasted on
this class of criminals.
Banks are doing more than any other industry to run
these lawbreakers to earth, and at the same time offer
facilities for protecting savings and valuables from pillage.
Modern business could not be transacted without the
checking account made possible by the modern bank.
Without banking facilities every business firm and every
home, in days like these, would have to have armed
guards to protect life and property.
Mob Rule vs. Government
Newspaper reports from Taf t, California, state strik
ing oil workers have organized an army of 2500 men, of
ficered by 450 ex-service men. That this military ma
chine is complete m every - detail, with outposts, signal
'corps and spies in San Francisco and Los Angeles to re
port the movements of the oil companies. Patrols are
stationed on the roads and strangers must give a satisfac
tory account of their business before being permitted in
the oil fields. ,
Press" reports state that the strikers' army , is sup
reme, and that the bringing in of a large number of men
to work in the oil fields would mean a battle to the death.
What is it all about? Merely a vain attempt to main
tain war wages and working conditions, by right of might
at the expense of the whole community, when conditions
are returning to normal, prices are receding and wages
are being revised to a new basis. On the theory that
these strikers are working, wage scales would be estab
lished not in accordance with economic conditions or the
Mob rule and intimidation of the public would esta
blish the standard, and this standard would be as high as
the strength of the union involved could force from the
employers. Any thinking man knows that a system of
this kind would fail in a country having any form of gov
erment to protect personal rights or property rights. If
mob rule of this kind can be successful all forms of stable
government are wiped out.
Strikes of this character can only fail so long as any
semblance of established goverment remains, and the oil
workers and the railway employes wha are threatening

millions they are raising to maintain strike benefits.
The People Still Rule
With a railroad strike threatened, some politicians.
as well as some so-called labor leaders appear to overlook
the fact that though the railroads were returned to pri
vate control the public is still paying the bills caused by
arcinciai ruies, regulations ana wage scales iorcea on tne
railroads for political purposes.
In all countries the price of commodities has been
In the United States farm products are lower in price
than for many years and the price of other necessaries of
life has been sharply reduced. Wages of labor generally
have been lowered in consonance with reduced cost of
living. Justice dictates that all be treated alike.
But railroad labor, which is the highest paid of all,
brazenly says that chánges in wages and working condi
tions will not be accepted. Not only does this class of
labor propose to retain wages but also fifty per cent more
after eight hours.
Not long ago wherf the shadows of the great war
were gathering on our horizon this same element with
ttop-watch in hand forced the passage of the Adamson
law with threats of a strike, a surrender of government
al power as humiliating to the public as it was subversive
of popular government. No president or Congress will
eyer dare to again put the patience or tolerance of the
people to such a test
The situation has entirely changed since then. The
stop-watch is now being held by "the public, more deter
mined than the radical labor oligarchy ever was that ex
ploitation of the public shall cease.
Strike or no strike the public is determined that
