(MM COMMISSION "MI'S WHAT M WHO'S 10" It's all over except the shouting. . . The big He Highbinder got it where the chicken got the axe. At the polls last Thursday the voters of Yuma expressed themselves in no -uncertain manner aria if will well for both the City Council and the CdrporatVon Commission,! with the Attorney General thrown in for good measure, to, heed the voice of the people. ; By a vote of almost two to one the people emphatically: declared that they want Sanguinetti and Swing 'to fraVe th'e right to connect their ice plant with the Sierra High Power line so that power can always hereafter be used as a check gainst exhorbitant rates that have' heretofore been charger, by the local light and power company. By this same overwhelming vote they declared they are. unalterably opposed to allowing the big He highbinder to' charge the City of Yuma and the citizens of Yuma EIGHT EEN HUNDRED PERCENT MORE FOR MUDDY WATER than the original franchise calls for, and if the Corporation Commission does not heed this advice the ped. pie will demand to know all the whys and wherefores. The batttle at the polls was friendly, though spiritecl The blow that knocked the big He highbinder galley-west-and-crooked was the circular gotten out a"bout noon giving the details of the "trick" the highbinder tried to pull off in Phoenix without letting the people of yuma know about it that of filing application with the Corporation Commission to RAISE its muddy water rates from ONE cent per front foot to SEVEN cents per front foot per month. At first sight this appers to be ONLY SEVEN HUNDRED PER CENT, but when it is remembered that at present patrons arc'at liberty to run the muddy each 24 hours, at one cent per front foot, and then know that under the proposed rates you can irrigate but THREE HOURS in the morning and THRFF HOURS in the afternoon, it will at. once be seen that the rates are raised FOUR TIMES SEVEN HUN- hut nnp fourth of 24 hours. And Drci-iJ, iui uuuio io then von can onlv use the muddy water through a quarter innVi nowtp which means thatvou could 'not irrigate a fifty 1 1 1 I'll llUtWW, " J foot lot in the sandy residence part of the city in forty years, for the sand would consume the water as fast as it could run r-.,i- if o nnarter inch nozzle. The big He highbinder did not figure that this informa- tion would reach Yuma from Phoenix until iuu laicio nn election dav. However, the editor of the Arizona Sentinel got a copy of the whole proceedings at 8 o'clock the morning of the election, and within three hours there ow rhp circular annrising the voters of all the facts was scattered broad-cast over the city. The local highbinder forces were speechless. It took all the & girt out of them. that this was "the blow that killed father", and so it proved, for the Sanguinetti-Ewing ordinance" sail ed in to victorv bv almost two-to-one, carrying the prepo sition along with it givingthe Council (instead of the Cor poration Commission) the right to fix the rates on all'public utilities in the city of Yuma. It was a glorious victory for the people, and my prediction is that the people will never have cause to regret granting this banguinetti-fcwing franchise. Goodbye big He highbinder. Your dough is cooked in Yuma. Now for "Municipal ownership". That's the next thing to do. (From Yuma Examiner, July 21.) WASHINGTON, July 21. The gov ernment now having listed ten million men in the order of !their liability to service began , final preparations for the organization of an army, and the determination of the 'exemption's. The drawing ended . early this morning, after lasting sixteen hours. It is ex pected to send the official figures to the board early next week alrid with in 10 days the men may appear before the local boards. Two. Wen will be summoned for each of th'e six hun dred and eighty-seven thousand need edt to allow for exemptions. Following is a' complete list, alpha betically arranged, of , Yuma .county men who are subject to examination : when called. As, the Examiner, stat-i ed yesterday, based on the ppinfon of United States Marshal Albert -Be-, nan, about 50 men only will. , be needed to fill out tlje quota for Yuma county at this time.t Adjutant gen eral Harris, stated at Phoenix some. time ago, that Yuma needed 109. At any rate all who have, enlisted from. this district and the Yuma members- of the First Arizona, now at Naco,;i must be counted against the Yuma: quota of 190. The official figures; brought down to da,te will be avail able in due time,,,. Inasmuch as all the names were drawn the important feature is to know "who's who" in the finals. The men will be notified shortly to appear for examination in the order in which' they were drawn at Washington. For) instance Edward Emme,tt Daley,; whose official number at Washington is 258 and was drawn first yesterday morning will, be the first to be. exam ined here and the order will be con tinued until the number needed have( passed. The Jist as herewith .pub-( llshed is complete and was. verified by Recorder Winn at the court house today. As. each .man has. si precinct number,, a registration num ber and the order in which he was drawn, all of which is confusing these numbers are omitted, together with the addresses to save space in this issue.

(Continued on Pag Two) RECLAMATiON FIGHT AGAINST FLO OD-WATERS NOW A THING OF THE PAST jProJec't Manager Schlecht, Chief Mechanic Layake affi3 Su't. ojp Construction Priest, together with their faith ful .as'sistents, are now resting on thier oars, for the Colo rado river has. now receded to such a point that all danger of levee-breaking has passe'd. It was a fight the like of which the Reclamation forces never before had to contend with be'eause of the long duration of the flood. For six long weeks it was a day and night batttle with the chances about equally divided for a break to occur at several places. Had a'riy one of the hundreds of men on duty failed in perform ing his whole part there is no telling what would have hap pened, for during the time of the overflow enough water flowed by Yuma to cover ten million acres ol land upwards of a foot .dee'p. buring the period of work on the levees it required OOp cubic yards of rock placed on the Bard levee and 95,000 cubic yards on the Yuma Valley levee, or a total ot ! J i . .1 n 1 i1 C f J- i.:-,Ar. 170,UUU cuDic yards 01 rocK wim a iorce ui men ai umca aWreSating 350. who were paid at the rate of from. $2.00 to - oo o O ' - $5.00 per day according to the class of work assigned them. The rock alone cost something like 60 cents per cubic yard. NU1 UlNb UULLAK Uf 1H15 vldl ouivi wo CHANGED AGAINST THE LANDOWNERS. Whether the project will continue to receive this great benefit in the future will depend wholly upon the outcome of the suit brought against the Government in protest against the pay ment of the construction cost of $75 per acre. If the court rules that ALL MONEYS EXPENDED ON THE PRU- jiiCT MUST BE RETURNED into the Reclamation treasury, then Yuma's only hope will lie in Congress. In the meantime the projects now sate tro'm overllow, due to fhe painstaking work of the local Reclamation forces. If tile river continues at its present stage for any con- rfefahle- time the Citv of Yuma will verv soon have to be gin a fighi against the river at the Gila street levee, for all the waters of the river are now flowing along the South ;Gila Valley bank, and ciitftmg badly. Day by day the wa ters are gradually encrouching on the Gila levee. At pres ent the main current is less than 100 teet Irom tne levee at the ooint where the big break occurred that caused the city to be overflowed last January a year ago. At the rate it is caving it will be only a matter or a weeK or ten aays wnen the main channel of the river will be squarely agairtst this levee, and when once there it will take day and night work to hold the levee. It would not cause an overilow, because the river is considerably below the bank, but unless tne caving is promptly checked it will certainly eat away the levee recently constructed by the war department. Already several hundred acres' of South Gila Valley lands have been caved into the river, with no indication that the caving wni stop. a THAT HIGHBINDER "STAND-BY LOAD" In the heart-breaking and pathetic appeal made to Yu ma voters in the recent election by the big He highbinder 5i't was asserted that the local company had a "stand-by" .load that would always be ready within THIR 1 Y MIN UTES, should anything happen to the Sierra line. This as sertion was made with"' the hope of convincing the unthink ing voter that it was not necessary to grant the Sangui-nettti-Ewing franchise, though the big He highbinder well knew he had no such "stand-by load." The storm of Tues day morning of this weetk put the local company complete ly on the blink. The lights were out shortly before four o'clock and there wasn't a kilowatt of power in the city for many hours. The same thing will continue to happen .every time any thing happens to the Sierra line, for the "stand-by load" of the local company does not furnish pow er enough to blow the city's fire whistle. The big He high binder should be FORCED to maintain a "stand-by load" as a matter of safety to the city. This city deserves better ser vice than it is getting. If we can do no better we can at least CONDEMN all his local plants and turn them over to the city.
