They have requested the Yuma dis trict to occupy the most prominent window, in the ticket office at 600 S. Spring street with an exhibit of Yuma products, especially oranges, lemons and grape fruit.

They will have a large card j But getting back to Mr. Murphy and printed and put in the window .where : his smiles, the thought came unwit the exhibits, are displayed, stating just tingly as to whether he had been in- where the exhibits came from, and , further they are going to burn a light aU night in. the window where the ex hibit appears So from the above it will be seen that Yuma is offered the finest chance in her history for free- advertising.. The Spring street window in Los An geles will be viewed by thousands ev--ery- day, and certainly Yuma should not and cannot afford to overlook' a ehance like this.. The Commercial Ciub should immed iately take the matter up and appoint some one competent to gathe such, an exhibition of Yuma fruits and pro ducts and send them to Los Angeles immediately. Also any private individual having a fine cluster of grape fruit, oranges or lemons-, should immediately send them in.

Many Citizens Viewing the Work fFrora the Dsily Examiner) Many interested Yuma citizens are taking afternoon strolls these days :) the vicinity of the second ' bridge on the S. P. on the California side. These strolls are made for the pur pose of watching the progress of the work on the main line canal which will feed the water from Laguna dam into the California mouth of the siphon shaft. The contractors are ail hustling the work along on that side of the river and while they do not have to finish before April 1, many of them will be through within next two weeks, and their stock will then be transferred to this side of the river where work being rushed by force account on the main canal .of the Yuma valley. Yuma was never more prosperous than right now and about 1,300 head of stock and possibly 700 men are being worked around Yuma, the pay rolls of which mostly find their way-into Yu ma coffers. Frank Murphy Says ,Jk He Is Optimistic Phoenix, Ariz., Dec. 17 F. M. Mur phy, of Prescott, was in Phoenix yes terday accompanied by Mr. and Mrs. F. P. Cruice. The latter will remain in Phoenix for a day or two visiting relatives, but Mr. Murphy left last eve ning for Tucson to attend business meetings there. He expectsto return to Phoenix about Tuesday and then go direct to Castle Hot Springs to spend a day or two. Mr. Murphy's face was beaming with smiles and optimism as usual. In fact, he was about the sunniest feature of the local scene yesterday, unless one might expect the face of Ralph Cameron, who came back on the morn ing train from the south, where he was caught by a snow stom in "Dear Old Cochise" on the 12th and from which he had just dug his way out. Mr. Cam- ron wore an illumination that mad Sunny Jim look like a sour ball, and no man' to witness his cheerfulness would imagine for a minute that he had just lost a tail hold on the biggest formed of the disaster that had occur red hereabouts on the 12th instapt. Asked how he felt about the elec tion, he said that he would freely ad mit that he was disappointed, as he believed most people were who realiz ed what a great opportunity had been cas aside. It is not Mr. Murphy's, way to grieve overmuch or unneces sarily long about that which cannot be helped. Good judgment requires a careful analysis of every situation, an admis sion of the facts and thereafter a trim ming of the saUs of one's craft to whatever kind of a storm may be raging. , Analyzing the situation he said that the Democrats being now in absolute control' of" the new state, it will be up to them to see that the rights of citi zens, taxpayers and all are not abused. Mr. Murphy evidently believes that Arizona is going to suffer a great deal as the result of the defeat of the prin cipal Republican candidates, for with Republican senators, a Republican rep resentative and a Republican governor the new state would have started un der more auspicious circumstances. o Mexico Was Jarretf By a Severe Quake Di Mexico City, Dec. 17 Mexico- was rocked from ocean to ocean and from Guanajuato on the north to- the isth mus of Tehauntepec on the south', by an earthquake to-day. An bid' woman was caught between the- walls of a falling house here- to day, and so badly injured that she may die. Mrs. Dora Chenowith, wife of an American dentist, is dead as the result of the earthquake, though indirectly. Fright caused' an. attack of ,'ieart trou ble. The disturbance was most severely felt in the state of Guerrero.. Bishop Kendrick Ends Life Work (From Monday's Examiner) Telegrams were receiyed in Yuma Saturday night from Pasadena, Cal., announcing the death in a sanitarium of that city, of Rev. J. Mills Kendrick, bishop of the New Mexico diocese of the Protestant Episcopal church.

Announcement of the funeral can not be made at present as it is only known that the body will arrive in Phoenix Tuesday morning, and that the funeral will- be held in that city For over twenty years Bishop Ken drick was at the head of the Episco pal church in Arizona and New Mexi co, most of the time claiming Phoenix as his home, but visiting and preach ing in Yuma quite frequently. He was the pioneer church builder end missionary of that denomination in this field.

Alter tne United States succeeded in building up great manufrcturing and other inter ests through the operation of a protec tive tariff, making this country pros perous and practically ir dependent of the products of other countries, Ger many :tiid other nations fodowed suit and put heavy tariffs on goods they manufacture. Germany to-day is one of the most prosperous countries in the world. Some people think the country- is . prosperous enough and they want in take orf the duties- on things they hap pen to be interested in But congress Is askings "Who will be benefited?" Take the lemon business- for In stance. In this country, 150,000 peo ple depend on the growing and mar keting of citrus fruits which- are sold cheaper now than they were the day before we leagued how tor grow them', ourselves. A? compared with the I'OO.OOO perr ole in the United SlatesdirectTy inter ested and the 90,000,000 people- indi rectly interested in maintaining" "the prosperity of the citrus industry there are between forty and sixty people who control the importation of these fniitc! fntn tlio TTnitprT StatfiR That's all, only about 50 or 60 And for their benefit it is 'proposed1 to re move the- tariff.
