SHREDDING PROHD3ITORY LAWS
After convicting a large number of men under the old dry laws the
supreme court of the United States declares that the Volstead act wiped
out all conflicting laws and therefore the men convicted under other
laws were in jail unlawfully and they will bo turned loose The dry laws
have many ramifications and the more decisions handed down the less
there is to enforce The important thing that appeals to the people is
the growing sentiment for home brew and the most daring mixtures are
being concocted to test the will and the stomachs of the American public
While there may at some time be a return to a wet condition in the
United States there is no reason to believe that saloons will ever have a
place in the sun The fact that professional prohibitionists are out for
the dough just as the professional agitator is fast creating sentiment
against enforcement of the dry lawsAand the fact that the big fellows
were able to lay away great amounts of liquor against a dry day has
militated against the law throughout the land Had the law confiscated
all liquors no matter whether it was a bottle in the pocket of a poor fel
low or a great cellar full of declared liquors might have made some dif
ference with the peple As it is the poor fellow is arrested for having
just one pint in his hip pocket and the big feUow is allowed to grace
the banquet board with as much as he pleases of the real stuff
ENFORCE PEACE BETWEEN NATIONS
The only guarantee of peace is a league of nations of some kind that
has enforceable provisions in its pact When every nation is carrying an
axe behind its back to carve the anatomy of the other it is impossible
to settle down to peace and securityWithout some understanding with
a group of nations each and every one of the big fellows will have to build
and keep on building navies until our seas will be burdened with fighting
craft and no one knows where he is to be attacked We want to illus
trate the initiative of Japan at Port Arthur when without warning
the navy of the Mikado opened fire and sunk the war vessels of Russia
With themit was getting in the first blow and make that blow a telling
one Suppose the navy of the Mikado came into New York harbor on an
apparently friendly mission and then proceeded to destroy everything in
sight and quietly slip away and report to the home government and have
war declared or that they would do some other overt act as reprehensable
as that of the Port Arthur affair how would such a country be punished
unless it was by the combined navies of the world closing her ports and
subjecting her to the contempt of the world and holding her to her own
shores The hand of every nation must be against the country that does
not observe the comity of nations and the rules of warfare and to get
this action every nation worth while must be brought into a league that
can enforce its demands at all times
MUST REDUCE RAIL RATES
That it is up to the railroads to reduce freights within the next sixty
days and that the railroads are in position to do so is the opinion of a
well known railroad manager The railroads have ben losing enormous
tonnages of freight because of the high tariff that the railroads have
and to regain the business it will
placed upon all classes of shipments
be necessary to return to pre war rates Just now the railroads are lay
ing off thousands of men because of the loss of traffic and higher rates
will only serve to further curb the shipper If low rates obtained on all
railroads they would not be able to handle the traffic and no matter
what the wage was the railroads would be able to get by The rail
roads have made it almost impossible for the miner to make shipment to
San Francisco or other smeltery points on ores As an illustration A
made shipment to San Francisco on a
month ago a miner of this county
himself taxed with approximately 52 per
three ton lot ore He found
ton or freight lust think of it If freights have been boosted to that
height it would look to the ordinary observer that the railroads were
trying to get out of business by making their rates prohibitive If ore
would be large shipments from
there
fates were as low as in pre wardays
this county
COMMUNING WITH SPIRITS
A French astronomer has given over the study of heavenly bodies
things taking his cue from many
and has taken up the study of spiritual
other noted men notably Sir Oliver Lodge and has been trying to get in
communication with the spirit of his dear departed dog He has a good
tell of what the
and
back
subject to work on for if a spirit can come
tell what the spirit world
canine spirit
spirit world contains why cannot a
has to offer to the dogs that have made the supreme sacrifice Flam
marian and all the other fellows get rather misty in drifting away from
the material and the farther the drift the more misty they become While
there are many unaccountable things happening in this old world of ours
ihey woufd be quite simple we take itif their occurrence was exposed
Man would like to believe that there is such a thing as spiritual inter-
communication but the fallacy of it has been exposd so often that it
is hardly worth while for us to worry over the problem But just why
men of letters get lead away fr6m the material things to the spiritual is
what confounds us It appears to be the same as the educators of the
country getting struck on socialism and like subjects
GRABBING SCHOOL MONIES
One of the bad features of the distribution of the school moneys of
the state is that a county that has practically no taxable property but
has a big crop of children reaps the liarvest of school money ganta
Cruz county that has less than one half the taxable property of Mohave
gets double the amount of school monsy that we do The same is true
of Apache Yuma Coconino Graham Navajo counties these subdivisions
of the state having less taxable wealth than Mohave have more than
double the census children that are reparted from this county and cpnse
quently get double the dough from the state The last legislative enact
ment also makes this more burdensome than ever There is a prorating

of the school lax by the state of 25 per school child and the counties
that have low census population have to come through with large sums
to keep up the schools of the largely populated districts In this way this
county is called upon not only to keep up its own schools but also to
provide the wherewithal for the large counties such as Maricopa
