THE MOHAVE COUNTY MINER AND OUR MINERAL WEALTH. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 1920. OF FRENCH LIFE PARIS, Nov. 10. Within two years after the signing of the armistice France has worked two veritable mir acles one of re-adjusinient and one of reconstruction. As a result of this miracle of read justment, although France was the one allied country that suffered most from the war, and the one country in which the increase in the cost of living was the greatest, she is the only one of the big Allied powers, who to day is entirely free from any strikes or social unrest of an economic na ture. Furthermore, she is the only one of the big Allied powers who in the same period of time has been able to free herself fully and definitely from the menace of Bolshevism. The death knell of the latter was sounded a month ago when in national -convention at Orleans the French Fedeia tion of Labor almost unanimously condemned the leaders who up until eight months ago ordered and sup ported political strikes amongst the French workingmen. Instead of waiting, as much of the rest of the world has done, for ecop omic life to re-establish itself on the pre-war basis, France saw at once that this would never happen ,and im mediately readjusted herself to the new economic life imposed by the war. The official statistics of the Allied countries place the increase in the cost of living in France as a result of this war at 300 per cent. Yet, despite this astounding handi cap, official figures of the French Ministry of Public Instruction, show that salaries generally throughout France have now been increased from 200 to 300 per cent. It is this quick readjustment of the whole economic basis of French life to the new standard of living created by the war, that has left France en tirely free "from industrial strikes for the past nine months and has wiped out completely the menace of Bolshe vism. All France is hard at work today on a fairly contented basis to repair the havoc and damages wrought by the war. Like all other Allied nations in Eu rope, one of the greatest damages to France from the war was the increase in her importations and the decrease in her exportations resulting in the frightful decrease in the value of French money in foreign countries. Yet the most astounding progress is being made to remedy this by increas ed French production and consequent ly increased exportation and decreas ed importation. During the first seven months of 1919 France exported only 4,776,402,- 000 francs-worth of merchandise and produce. For the first seven months of 1920, these exportations were in creased to 12,006,630,000 fra'ncs, a gain of over 7,000,000,000 francs. France's total importations for 1919 were 29,778,000,000 francs against only 8,713,0000,000 francs of exporta tions. For all of 1920 it is estimated that her importations will only be 37,304,- 000,000 francs and her exportations 20,582,000,000 showing a steady prog ress towards the reestablishment of equal importations and exportations necessary to overcome the present ruinous rate of French exchange. As regards commercial relations with the United States France's im portations for July s from America, which totaled $58,961,554 were reduc ed for the month of August to $38, 321,050, showing how fast French in dustries are getting back on a basis where they can supply the needs of France without recourse to foreign countries. France has kept equal pace in the reconstruction of her devastated re gions. Of, the 2,712,000 French citizens who were driven from their homes by the German invasion, 1,533,000 are now back on the job. Of the 5,570 kilometer of railway destroyed during the war 4,070 kilo meters are back in operation. Of the 5,760,000 acres of land ren dered uncultivatable because of the presence of unexplodcd shells and missies, 5,220,000 acres have been cleaned and put back into cultivation. Of the 3,060,000 acres of ground that were pounded into nothing by shell fire and other war activities, 2, 870,000 liave been restored to produc tivity. Of the 11,500 factories that were destioyed by the war 3,540 are already back in operation and another 3,842 are under reconstruction. Of the 379,000 people who were cm ployed in these destroyed factories before the war, 257,831 are back at work in them. And Out! Wilkins: Why is Bro 3rooks w: inding up his affairs?

TOO EASY TO GET LICENSE TO WEI) DECLARE CLERKS Phoenix, Nov. 14 That the laws of the stale are too lenient with Cupid and too severe with the clerks of the superior courts, was the decision reached by the clerks of the different counties who yesterday met and or ganized in this city for the purpose of securing legislation at the coming session of the legislature for their protection. Wiile the number of matters will be put up to the law-makers, the court clerks will emphasize the need of a change in the law relating to the is suance of marriage licenses. The dis cussion brought out the fact that very often the license is issued to a party under age, the clerks having relied on the word of the applicant. Under the state law it is only nec essary for the man to apply for the license, and an effort will be made to have this changed requiring both parties to appear. An affidavit cov ering all questions asked by the clerks will be another requirement the clerks hope to incorporate in the law. They believe that if marriage licenses ar3 more difficult to secui'e, there will be fewer divorces. Delay in Filing Judgments Another amendment they see neces sary for securing has to do with filing and docketing judgments. Under the present law a person may recover judgment in the superior court and the judge's order may be filed in a week or a month or not at all. On the ground that the judgment acts as a lien and as a fair business propo sition in property sales, etc., it should be docketed on the date of the order, they say. A uniform filing system and keeping of the records also will be recommended. Not all of the counties of the state were represented at the meeting, so it was decided to get in touch with the absent ones by correspondence. Some of the clerks were unable to attend the conference, but Ben Crawford of Greenlee county, in response to his in vitation, declared that he took his suggestions from the judge of his county. The meeting was presided over by Lloyd C. Henning, of Navajo county. H. B. Fanner of Yuma county, acted as secretary. Among those present were Cljiude Berryman, clerk of the superior court of Maricopa county, and his chief deputy, W. H. Linville; L. S. Udall, clerk of court of Apache county; J. W. Wentworth of Gila county; Mrs. Olive G. Failor of Pima county; H. B. Farmer of Yuma; Lloyd C. Henning, Navajo; Tom L. Reese, Coconino county. VICTORY MEDALS ARRIVE FOR FORMER MARINES Victory Medals, clasps, bronze and silver stars and maltese crosses are now available for distribution to for mer officers and men who served hon orably in the Marine Corps between April 6, 1917 and November 11 r 1918, and may be had by presenting their discliarge certificates at the nearest Marine Corps Recruiting Station. Battle clasps will be issued with each medal to such officers and men who served in the Aisne Defensive, and. the Aisne Marne, St. Mihiel and Meuse-Argonne Offensives. In addi tion to these major operations, a de fensive sector clasp is awarded for service in one or more of tht follow ing engagements: Verdun Sector, Chateau Thierry and Marbache Sec tor. Not more than defensive sector clasp will be awarded to any indivi dual ,and the total number of clasps or bronze stars to which any one may be entitled are five, i. e.: four battle clasps and one defensive sector clasp. One bronze star will be issued for each clasp awarded, the stars to be worn on the service ribbon or bar as it is sometimes called. For Marines who reached France and who did not get into action, a clasp marked "France" will be award ed for wear with the Victory Medal and a maltese cross, instead .of a bronze star, will be issued for wear in the service ribbon or bar. Clasps are also awarded for duty with "the Grand Fleet, Asiatic Fleet, Atlantic Fleet and for patrol, escort, aviation and overseas duty, for which one bronze star on the service ribbon is authorized. The "Overseas" clasp is for service on shore in allied or enemy countries of Eurdpe other than France. . A silver star will be awarded with each Victory Medal to be worn on the ribbon of the medal to such Marines who have been commended as a re sult of the recommendation of the Board of Awards by the Secretaiy of the Navy for performance of duty not justifying the award of a Medal of Honor, a Distinguished Service Medal or a Navy Cross. Moie than one sil ver star may be worn on the ribbon of the medal according to the awards made the Marine in question. The policy of the recruiting station at Los Angeles is to encourage as far as possible propriety in tne matter of wearing insignia. To this end, it is advised that a man should not wear his sen-ice ribbon (or bar) at the same time he is wearing the medal which aich ribbon represents. The purpose of the ribbons is primarily to avoid the necessity of at all times appear ing with medals pinned on the blouse. THANKSGIVING DAY DDAPI AMATMN A PROCLAMATION DESIGNATING THURSDAY, NO VEMBER 25, 1920, AS THANKSGIVING DAY Three hundred years ago, on a bleak New England shore there gathered a band of Pilgrims, to render thanks to the Almighty for the harvest that had been gathered. The day of Thanks giving thus inaugurated liad annual observance within the northeastern American colonies and has had na tional recognition since 1863. It is based upon the harvest festival com mon to all peoples, a day selected es pecially for the offering to Omnipo tence of thanks for the natural boun ties through which life is sustained. The Puritans gave thanks that their reaping had assured food for the com ing winter, and that their lives had been spared in their struggles with the surrounding Indians. In his is suance of the first nationdl Thanks giving Day proclamation, Lincoln was moved by gratitude for a period of success at aims that assured the win ning .of the war between the States. Today, our Nation two years removed from the victorious ending of the greatest war of "history, is moved by thankfulness for mercies through which its independence and its peo ple's rights have been retained. Conditions of reconstruction are gripping the people of Arizona. For extraneous reasons, their products are finding slack demand in a time when high maintenance costs still are known. But, beneath this surface showing, can be found much for which gratitude can be expressed. For the year past our State has enjoyed peace in fullest measure. Industrial dis turbance has been unknown, nor has there been loss by epidemic or storm. Mines and farms and factories have been operated without hindrance. De velopment has been unchecked and faith in the State's future never was stronger or more firmly based. Our people, with serene confidence in the destiny of their nation and in their own abilities, are turning toward ac complishment of their new tasks and are restoring the balance the war had unsettled. NOW, THEREFORE, I, THOMAS E. CAMPBELL, Governor of Arizona, in pursuance of honored custom, and in deference to a proclamation of the President of the United States, do hereby designate Thursday, November twenty-fifth, nineteen hundred twen ty, as a day of THANKSGIVING for blessings enjoyed and of prayers to God for a continuance of national liberties, and for the upbuilding of patriotic character among the people. IN WITNESS. WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the' Great Seal of the State of Arizona to be affixed. Done at Phoenix, the cap ital, this fifteenth day of November, 1920.

IN TWELVE MONTI During the last twelve months the motorists of the United States took from their wheels and replaced some seveneteen million tires which had ap parently run their course, represent ing an original expenditure of fully $500,000,000, according to a statement just issued by the statistician of the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company of California, Los Angeles. The cry of the car owners who dis carded this great multitude of tires is for better tires less tire trouble fewer tire changes longer tire life; lower cost per mile. Yet through the application of the simplest methods of tire conservation, at the command of every motorist it is estimated that fully one half of this enormous mor tality in tires and loss in money might have been prevented. Thous ands of these tires were replaced be cause they passed away before their time. If $250,000,000 of the nation's tire Either a Marine should appear with all service ribbons of all medals and medals are supposed to be worn only on stated occasions.

Another Pan- ama Canal could be built in two years, or a fleet of fifteen first class battle ships built for our navy each year. I Through the establishment of ser vice stations throughout the West the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company of California has set about to combat the conditions that have been costing so much money and worry. Each of these stations is equipped to help car owners get the most possible mileage and reduce the tire cost per mile to an absolute minimum. Mr. A. S. Hogan, Service Manager of the western Goodyear, in comment ing on the company's tire conserva tion policy, says, "We are simply car rying out an old principle that pre vention is easier than cure ,and ap plying it to tire 'trouble. Here is where our service stations come in. We have dotted the West with these stations where motorists may drive in to have their tires examined, tread cuts filled, air pressures tested, wheels aligned, tire chains adjusted properly, and the many other pre cautions pointed out that' count in making mileage greater. "The one big aim of our factory is to build mileage into the tires. The aim of the service station is to see that the greatest enjoyment and use of the tires may be attained with the least effort and expense. All of which exemplifies the highest type of cooperation that can exist between in a chain of consumer, dealer and man ufacturer. "While our service stations are al ways interested in selling new tires, they are always glad to show a few more miles can be secured before a tire is ready for final discard." MINER WANT ADDS.
