EDITORIAL COMMENT
Commenting upon the high
way program the other day,
a prominent citizen remarked
that we had made the mistake
of giving our officials too much
money to spend all along the
line from municipal to capi
tol. He would have been more
nearly correct if he had said
we have made a mistake by
not demanding more from our
officials for the money we’ve
given them to expend.—The
Glendale News.
They say state treasury
warrants are scarce around
Phoenix because the funds
are low. How about the fif
teen-million-dollar appropria
tions of last 3?ear? Is the
junker program a camouflage
to keep something dark?
Are oil interests back of
the move for intervention? It
is not generally known that
the world’s greatest oil wells
are in Mexico. One well that
was producing 50,000 barrels
of petroleum daily for eight
years was recently closed by
flooding. This well in meas
ured daily capacity also turned
out 120,000 barrels crude oil
in a steady stream. Another
well at Cerro Azul, brought
in during 1916, has a tested
capacity of 310,000 barrels
daily. On account of limited
pipeline, it has been throttled
down to 15,000 barrels a day.
While English capitalists are
interested in oil in Mexico,
American investments are the
largest. The Industrial Re
view, a junker representative
of the merchants and manu
facturies association,suggests
“Oil may be the means of al
laying strife between the two
republics.” All of which is
interpreted to mean that if
Mexico don’t give America
oil concessions, intervention
may follow. To resist this
premeditated program Villa
has dismissed his maurauders
with instructions to seek am
nesty of Carranza in order to
resist interference of the U.
S. by presenting a united re
sistance by guerrilla warfare.
Meanwhile Villa has gone to
Japan at head of a commis
sion empowered to trade con
cessions for arms and ammu
nitions.
The Kenyon bill now before
the senate committee on ag
riculture and forestry, should
it become a law, will practic
ally establish government op
eration of the packing house
industry and the release of
165,000,000 lbs of butter now
in storage with other perish
able foods that should have
been distributed and sold to
the public long ago.
If Uncle Sam is able to
make the beef and grocery
trusts behave a great deal of
unrest in the country will
end, but it looks like govern
ment agents will have to get
their gas masks on to oust
the enemy. The trend of late
events as depicted by the big
dailies causes the average
reader to inquire what is com
ing next. To all Americans
the high cost of living is the
vital issue.
If the intervention junkers
succeed in starting a war with
Mexico the buffer states on
the border will suffer most;
but Arizona, it is estimated,
will have to bear the brunt of
internecine strife that will be
a set back of fifteen years to
her industrial growth and
population.
Right will ultimately pre
vail, but a fellow’s meal ticket
gets punched so darn full of
holes in the meantime.
Uncle Sam has woke up ac
cording to yesterday’s press
dispatches. He has returned
telegraph and telephone lines
back to private control. The
change took place at mid
night. He has also suddenly
decided to brave the anger of
the packers and grocer trust,
by announcing he is going to
sell 41,000,000 pounds of war
supplies. Every postmaster
is a salesman, and if its saner
kraut and weiners, or alfalfa,
all you need do is order thru
i
your preferred office.
A state tax conference was
held this year at Grand Can
yon; next year it goes to the
south end of the state. Then
a little manipulation ought
to l&ing both ends up against
the middle —Wickenburg for
instance. |

ARIZONA STATE MINER.
Chas. P. Mullen, of Skull
Valley, president of the Ari
zona cattle growers ass’n; is
now president of the federa
tion of state and national live
stock associations formed at
Salt Lake recently. The name
of the organization is titled
“United Stockmens Associa
tion for Eederal Control of
Public Grazing lands.” The
object is to secure federal con
trol over 23,000,000 acres of
public domain in Arizona, as
well as tha public domain in
12 other states. At the meet
ing 150 delegates .were pres
ent, composed of cattlemen
and sheepmen. The sessions
covered two days and at its
windup Mr. Mullen was em
powered to act in any matters
that may come up.
Senate bill 1516, by Sena
tor King of Utah, embraces
measures urged by the asso
ciation which are federal con
trol of grazing lands just as
there is federal control of for
ests. Under present condi
tions there is an interming
ling of herds on the public
domain to the mutual disad
vantage of all owners. Reso
lutions passed during the ses
sion urges Congress to “en
act legislation that grazing
on the unappropriated lands
be regulated and under the
supervision of the department
of agriculture with the inter
ests of the livestock men
properly safeguarded.”
Notations from the univer
sity of Arizona are out that
persons desiring to take the
field course in range livestock
production must enroll at
once. Five weeks will be oc
cupied in visiting ranges all
over the state. The entire
cost will be $lO5 as bedding
is to be carried and “eats”
cooked range fashion. Over
3,000 miles will be covered
by autos and lasts until Sept.
6th. The trip has been ar
ranged with great care.
