WICKS, G. A. WICKS. •> THE PARKER POST EMBLEMS OF DEATH FOR TOYS. NEW YORK, Nov. 2. —Several thousand cases of German toys ar rived here today.—Associated Press. Toys! For whom? For the inno cents carried down when the “Lusi tania” sank? For those tear-eyect ! Belgian children who stretch forth i little arms from which the hands were struck off by the swords of German officers? For those French boys and girls with pitiful sightless, j ,eyes? For those little bodies reSting | in the churchyards of Italy, that died, in pain from poisoned Hun candy? For those children slowly starved to death in Poland or massacred in Ar menia? ' Toys? Toys made by Huns to whom innocence and childhood are but toys to be played with and then crushed and broken? Toys whose very contact contaminates and leaves upon the touch of babyhood invisible clots of. blood? As well bring a deadly ser pent into the home to spew its venom, on the cradle. Why shall we befouL and taint the purity of American. Childhood with a reminder of the fiendish treatment the Huns have gloried in ever since that fateful August of 1914? Can one even look upon a Noah’s Ark “Made in Ger many” and put from his mind those hundreds of helpless innocents whose silken locks are twined with sea weed ?Can one hold a German doll in her arms and forget the thousands, dead from famine who once made glad a mother’s arms? ‘ Can a boy find delight in the contortions of a mechanical Hun clown and forget those brave young men. who writhed in agony when crucified on castle wallsfiy these same Huns? Can a ball colored with the red of Huns fail to suggest the flame from bursting grenades hurlqd by arms uplifted in the attitude of “kjamerad?” Let those who would invite fear some ghosts into the home to hover around the Christmas tree buy Ger man toys. If one would hang the boughs with evil omens, and bid the wail of agonized spirits float through the branches and fan the flickering flame of candles, let him buy German toys. Let those who can, make mer ry with the product of those very hands which even at this mo ment are eagerly firing shells with poison gases and deadly flames and hurling them against our own flesh and blood. And what of the merchant who for sordid gain would barter these souv.enirs of a loathsome nation and insult the loyalty of lisping lips? What could more delight the cunning Hun, what more quickly bring the sneering smile to cruel faces, or gladden heartless hearts, or encour age him to hope that even now we tolerate his brutality and welcome what he wants to sell? If now, when as a nation we are in universal con demnation of Htinism, yet do we hold out our hands to accept his works? What will he think and with what measure shall he estimate the sincer ity of our expressions of repugnance and horror at what he has. done since the sun rose this morning? What mitigation can we claim in the thought that America was mot yet overseas when these trinksts were fashioned? Even while the gaudy paint was yet fresh upon these trin kets were Belgian girls being drag ged into slavery worse than death. We do not lack for toys; toys made in American factories, by hands which are clean; toys also by car loads made by our ally in Japan, where childhood is sacred, and love, not hate,is taught at mothers’ breasts. Even were there none, far better our boys and girls should go without than find pleasure in the handiwork of a nation which made a public holiday to celebrate the loss of the “Lusitania,” and which in these lat ter days is steeped in the “glory” of monstrosities. Could our little men who sacrifice many a childish pleas ure to buy war stamps and contribute pennies to the Red Cross, and our little mothers who knit so patiently with hands that can barely hold the needles, would one of these know ly find pleasure in any toy “‘Made in .Germany?”—H. H. Windsor. INDORSES WAR WORK.* That it is impossible for any gov ernment organization to fulfill the mission of supplying the soldiers and sailors’ wants as do the seven welfare organizations combined in the United War Work Campaign, is the state ment of Lieutenant-General Francis Lloyd of the British army, command ing the London district. Lord Mil ner, secretary of state for war, also endorses this view with a statement that the American fighters have shown the benefits of having these welfare agencies with them. PARKER, ARIZONA, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 1918. CAPTURED HUN TANK REPAIRED BY FRENCH ' The tank seen in this French Official photograph was captured by the I French in the recent heavy fighting j>n the western front. The tank was de molished by the heavy French gunfire and it took these crafty ’Frenchmen ; twelve days of work under enemy fire to put it in order again. The photo graph shows the French crew which repaired the tank and which is operating it with great results against the enemy. LETTERS FROM FRANCE. Mrs. C. H. Hosfelt received’ a fevP days ago a couple of letters, dated October 3d and sth, respectively, from her son, Louis J. Hosfelt, who is now with the American forces on the fighting line in France. As nearly everybody in these parts knew “Lou” Hosfelt, a few excerpts from his letters may prove of inter t est. In the first of these he says: “I don’t believe I ever felt better in my life. Everything is about the same here as far as I know, although I believe there will be peace before long—it looks that way to me. I surely hope so because I am anxious to get back to the states. But Ido want to stay till we give the Ger mans a good licking, and I hope that won’t be long in coming. “I guess everything in Parker is awfully quiet. There was quite & bunch of boys drafted from there to serve their country. “What little I have seen of France reminds me a whole lot of Phoenix valley. They raise here all kinds of fruit, but mostly grapes. It is surely a rich country and its lands are very fertile.” In the other letter he says in part: “We are at the front for so long a time that I don’t know whether I like it or not, but there are all kinds of excitement and many things to see, all right. “I would like to see you all and I don’t think it will be long before I will be able to —not if they leave it to the ‘Yanks,” for they certainly are fighters, believe me! “France is a very pretty place but I am a little afraid*it is going to be a bit too cold here to suit me this com ing winter. Hqwever, I can stand it if the rest can.” SEIZURE LAW IS HELD UNCON STITUTIONAL. Judge Sam L. Pattee, of the super ior court of Pima county, in the mat ter of McArthur Brothers against the state of Arizona, an action wherein the company sought the recovery of an automobile that had been seized under the new prohibitory law, held that the law was unconstitutional. The complainants attacked the con- j stitutionality of the law on three points, as follows: 1— That the governor’s proclama tion calling the legislature into spe cial session did not provide for such legislation. 2 That the automobile seizure was an additional punishment over and above the penalty specified in the state constitution. 3 That the law violated both the state and federal constitutions in that it did not provide the owner of the automobile seized under the law with due process of law to combat forfeit ure proceedings. The court sustained all of the ob jections. In rendering his opinion Judge Pattee observed: “This law appears to have been drawn by someone who was in favor of prohibition, but not its enforce ment,” and further stated: “At the beginning of the argument the court expressed its opinion concerning this remarkable statute perhaps unwisely, but a further study of its provisions has in no wise modified the views there expressed. Why an act was drawn which was subject to so many objections is to the ordinary mind in conceivable.” I CARD OF THANKS. I wish to thank the citizens of Parker for the position of honor to which they have elected me and to assure them that it will be my when I take the office to work with them arid the officers of the precinct, county and state for a better Parker. Do not expect a perfect justice of the peace for we are all human and subject to mistakes. When mistakes are made, let’s try to right them rather than make them worse by use less talk. After we have done all we can to correct the mistake, let’s take the lesson we should, learn from the mis take, make use of it in the future and go ahead with a smile of deter mination to be more careful. I sincerely wish for and need the friendship of every citizen of Parker and vicinity. Your friendship will help me to be the officer I should be | aad my friendship might he of 3ome little serviec to you, at any rate I do not see how it can harm you any. This note is not only to those who saw fit to vote for me in the past election, but to all, for those of you who voted against me were just as sincere as those who saw fit to vote for me, and we are all working for the same object, “good government.” Then let us stand together and work for our aim. Very sincerely, NELLIE T. BUSH. OLD TIMER PASSES AWAY. Dennis A. Burke, one of the most prominently known of Yavapai pio neers, but since 1909 a resident of Bouse, passed away at Mercy hospi tal in Prescott on Sunday afternoon. His fight against the inevitable was heroically endured for nearly two years, his illness being due to the bite of a vinegeron, more commonly known among the Indians as “The Child of the Earth,” a small-sized in sect. He was attacked by this dead ly creature at night while sleeping out on a cot at his hotel at Bouse during warm weather, the fangs penetrating his hand and from that day his health declined. The wound for months afterward did not appear to cause him any serious trouble, J much less was there pain at the time. The death of this popularly known Arizonan takes away another pioneer of splendid fellowship and an exem plary citizen. Surviving is a widow, who was with him in devotion to the end. Three daughters and one son also are left, Mrs. J. W. Kramer, Mrs. F. A. Cartmell, Mrs. E. Goodwin, and Beverely Burke.- —Prescott Journal- Miner. CARD OF THANKS. To my friends in Parker who so splendidly remembered me at the polls on election day, thereby re electing me to office of constable of Parker precinct, I desire to express my gracious appreciation pf the favor and extend to one and all my most sincere thanks. JOHN ROBERTS. CAMPBELL PROBABLY ELECTED. According to the returns from Phoenix Tom Campbell has been elected governor over Fred T. Colter, although the democratic state cen tral committee claims* Colfer’s elec tion by a small margin. With the exception of governor, the entire democratic state ticket was elected by good majorities. “Y” SERVICE IS FOLLOWING THE FLAG. Arizona does not have to go far ] afield to find out what the Y. M. C. A. is doing for the boys in the service. Letters come constantly with allu sions to the work being done at home and abroad. Here for example is what Howdrd J. Smith, of King man, Arizona, writes to his mother from France: “If it were not for the Y. M. C. A. here I don’t know what the American troops would do. No tobacco would be obtainable until it was brought in by this organization, and in any other instances it has been a blessing to us.” Private Donald C. Blair of company E. Eleventh Engineers Railway,A. E. F. France, writes his mother: “As I said before the Y. M. C. A. quarters here are very large and nothing is lacking to make the men feel at home. They sell hot and cold drinks and sandwiches all day at a minimum price; also candy and tobacco. They always have reels and good film in the evening, and sometimes dancing and games. There are several billiard tables and a large leading room, and in the afternoon there is generally a concert.” Private Blair is from Tucson. Waldo White of Yuma, who is with the 158th Infantry in France, in writing to his father, C. M. White, at Yuma, says: “The Y. M. C. A. man caught up with us yesterday (the regiment was evidently advancing at the front) and says that as soon as the front, line is supplied that he can get a truck of tobacco for us. The supply department was very prompt in get ting grub to us and good American food was certainly welcome after eating English chow so long. To bacco and matches cannot be had in the village and when we asked for candy the people threw up their hands.” WHAT ABOUT COPPER AFTER THE WAR? '‘What will copper do after the war?” is the question that is now absorbing the interest of the copper world.—Wall Street Journal j That the potential demand will be enormous is generally conceded. But it is pointed out that the usual refer ences to various important future sources of demand, such as the re habilitation of Europe, or the whole sale electrification of the railroads in the United States, have been more or less academic, and these fields of absorption cannot be counted on until conditions in this country have be come fairly stable and the reconstruc tion of Europe is well in progress. It is claimed that the present huge consumption would result in a price 50 per cent to 75 per cent high er than the government’s maximum of 26 cents, were the market: permit ted free movement, and on this basis a demand amounting to only 56 per cent to 67 per cent of the current war would sustain a price of 26 cents in an open market. If this theory is correct, domestic consumption and exports 'combined would need total only at the rate of 1,350,000,000 to 1,600,000,000 lbs. annually in order to uphold the present price. In 1913 exports alone of copper in all forms amounted to 1,073,292,612 pounds. The apparent consensus is that the trend of prices in either direction will be gradual,subject to the normal fluctuations of an open market. The situation is generally regarded, how ever, as possessing elements of un precedented perplexities. PRAISE WAR WORK CAMPAIGN. “One of the finest things done dur ing the war” is the verdict pronounc ed by Lloyd Harris, chairman of the Canadian War Mission on the war work of the Y. M. C. A., in a state ment urging support of the United W&r Work Campaign. Mr. Harris designated the one organization with which he was familiar of the group composed of the Y. M. C. A., Y. W. C. A., National Catholic War Council K. of G., War Camp Commun ity Service, Jewish Welfare Board*, American Library Association and Salvation Army. UNITED WAR FUND. Monday, November 11th will be opening day for the United War Fund. The committee hopes to make this a banner day and go over the top in one day. Everyone will be asked to give to this fund; all are interested as it is for the comfort of the boys who are giving their lives for us. Let us give them all we can in comfort and pleasure which will be very little in comparison. Please help us to help them. UNITED WAR FUND COMMITTEE. THE Him METHOD EKCELS (By Irving A. Palmer.) The concentration of ores by flota tion is undoubtedly the most importr ant development In metallurgy since ; the introduction of the cyanide pro-. ! cess. Although it is but seven years j since the first successful froth flota j tion plant in the United States was built yet the tonnage of ore now con centrated in the country by this method exceeds that treated by any other non-ferrous metallurgical pro cess. At the beginning of 1917 It was W3timated that more than 30,000,000 tons of ore was annually concentrated by flotation in the United States. This tonnage exceeded that of all the cop per smelters or of all the gravity con centration plants. Since that time the percentage in favor of flotation has no doubt increased No other metallurgy cal process has ever made such head way in so short a period. At present it is used with success in almost every mining district in the world where concentration is practiced. In the flotation process the valuable 1 minerals of an ore are separated from 1 the gangue or worthless portions by causing them to float on water,while • the gangue sinks to the bottom. As the valuable minerals are usually heavier than the gangue minerals It will be seen that flotation reverses the principle of gravity concentration, in which the heavier minerals go to th? bottom and the lighter ones above are washed away. The seeming impossi bility of causing heavy minerals to float is accomplished in a number of ways, the underlying principles of which have never been thoroughly explained. In spite of the fact that millions of tons of ore are concentra ted by flotation no one yet fully un derstands why certain minerals can be made to float while others cannot. The absence of a satisfactory working theory has rendered progress in .the art largely a matter of patient ex perimenting. If a quantity of pulverized ore con taining metallic sulphides or free metals be agitated in water contain ing a small amount of oil it is found that the oil shows a tendency to con centrate on the surface of the sul phides or of the free metals and put on the particles of oxidized minerals or of the gangue. On the other hand, the water shows a tendency to adhere to, or to wet, the oxidized minerals and the gangue. If, now, by means of agitation, or by the blowing in of air, bubbles are produced In the liquid it will be found that the oiled particles of sulphide or metal tend to collect on the surfaces of the bubbles, and that the sulphide-laden bubbles tend to coal ese into froth which floats on the surface and cannot be removed. The particles of oxidized mineral and of gangue, not being oiled, are not at tracted to the bubbles and hence sink to the bottom. In many cases flota tion can be effected by the use of an acid which generates bubbles of gas to which the sulphide particles adhere and for which the particles of oxidiz ed minerals and gangue have no par ticular attraction. In brief, commer cial flotation is based upon the selec tive affinity of air or gas bubbles for particles of sulphide mineral or of metal which may or may not beVoiled. Other substances than oils and acids have been used Successfully in pro ducing flotation, and good sepa rations have been made by using any one or % more of many differ ent oils, acids, and other compounds, and by applying agitation and aera tion in dozens of different ways. But the real reason as to why some substances are better than others, or as to why some minerals float and others do not, are as yet un known. The most that can he said at present Is that metals and sulphide minerals with metallic luster usually can be made to float, but oxidized metallic minerals and gangue cannot. However,mercury sulphide,which kail no luster, and graphite, which haa a luster, but which is not a sulphide, are both susceptible to flotation. Only by trial Is it possible to deter mine what can be done • with any given mineral. Called to the Colors. Bernard Roberts, D. A. Martinez and Henry Turk, who recently pars ed the physical examination and were accepted for service In Jhe army, have been notified to report for duty next Monday. HO. 86.
