Co operation of S P With Mines Increases
Business and Population
The vast wealth laden terrltorj
west of the Rocky Mountains owes Its
development primarily to two agen
cies Mining and Railroading
The attention of the world was first
attracted to the West with the an
nouncoment of the discovery of gold
A great Influx of people followed and
the tales of the resources and possl
blllties In the West spread to all
parts of the globe
The one great obstacle in the way
of development was the lack of trans
portation facilities The long perl
Ions voyage around Cape Horn in
windjammers mitigated against an
considerable interchange of commerce
Fortunately there were captains ol
Industry and finance possessed ol
broad vision courage and sufficient
faith In the future of the West to con
celve and bring to completion great
systems of transcontinental railways
Among these the Southern Pacific
were the first lines
For many years there were nothing
but main lines of railroads through
the mininc territory and the ores and
rich minerals were transported to the
railways by mules donkeys and horses
from mines far back In the mountains
The placer mining camps of the early
days were about the only ones located
adjacent to the railroad
In the last twenty five years the
greater mining development on the
Southern Pacific has been in Nevada
and In Arizona and New Mexico Op
erations In these districts have re
suited In very heavy movements ol
mining supplies such as concentrating
smelting and other treating machinery
explosives timbers and fuel
There also has developed a very
heavy outbound tonnage of bullion
and other finished or semi completed
mineral products from the mines
3 P Co Operates
The policy of the Southern Pacific
always has been to co operate in the
development of these properties In
doing so It has followed the plan ol
publishing reasonable freight rates on
the materials and supplies used in the
mines and In the treatment of the
products of the mines with low rates
on the ores or on the manufactured
products out of the smelters
In the adjustment of rates on the
products of the mines It has been the
policy to establish schedules based
upon the values of the product The
principle has been recognized that a
producer of ore worth 100 a ton can
afford to pay a higher charge than
Can the producer of ore valued at 20
This bas been done in recognition
of the fact that the great bulk of the
ores transported would be ofalessei
value and with the view of encourag
ing the greatest possible production ol
low grade ores so that in the aggre
gate would be transported sufficient
Tolume of tonnage to afford a reason
table return on the Investment
The company also has encouraged
to the fullest extent the treatment
of minerals at the point of produc
These policies have resulted in the
maintenance of the closest possible
feeling of co operation between mine
owners and the railroad bringing
about constantly increasing popula
tion in the mountain and desert re
gions with development in the thriv
ing industrial cities where only a few
years ago there was nothing tut
struggling mining camps
Twenty five years ago both mining
and railroad development in Arizona
were in their infancy Then the as
sessed value of all railroads operating
within the state was less than 3000
000 while the assessed value of min
ing property of all description was lesi
than 2000000

also stated that of the number of

expected here
Rotary represents simply the idea
of service the chief pledge of its
members being to see that they shall
consider service before self and
that their example and their work for
the community their business or pro
fession and toward individuals they
shall give practical demonstration of
the fact that he profits most who
serves best
The eighty thousand Rotanans in
the world to which number a reprej
sentative group of business and proV
fessional men of this city have just
heen added developed in the last sev
enteen years from a meeting of four
men February 23 1905 m the office
of Paul P Harris a lawyer in Chi
Harris who is still a member of the
Chicago Rotary Club is looked upon
as the Father of Rotary He had
the original idea of forming a club
that would promulgate the spirit of
service and would be different from
any existing organization Associat
ed with him at that first meeting
were Silvester Schiele H E Shorey
and Gus A Loehr The test of the
idea came with another meeting
which drew to Rotary such men as
Harry Ruggles Rufe Chapin Charlie
Newton Will Jenson Doc Neff
Bernard Arntzen and Albert White
men who now as then represent a dy
namic force of organization and abil
ity which has been of inestimable
value to Rotary throughout the world
The idea they evolved and fostered
to the point where it actually became
a world force was an organization
which would consist of one man from
each business or profession who would
meet in rotation at various places at
frequent intervals and discuss various
questions that might come up from
time to time become better acquaint
ed with each other the problems of
the business of each as it affected the
life of the community and for good
fellowship It was agreed to promote
fellowship one important step would
be to call each man by his first name
or nickname to make it compulsory
that this should be done
The name Rotary Club was adopt
ed shortly after the first meeting be
cause the members met in rotation in
the offices of i each other
The Chicago Club continued to in
crease in membership In 1908 three
years after the first meetings the sec
ond Rotary club was organized in San
Francisco Other clubs followed on
the Pacific Coast and then the move
ment spread to the East and then to
the South until sixteen clubs had been
organized by the end of 1910
It was in 1910 that the first con
vention was held in Chicago and the
National Association formed At
this convention Chesley R Perry was
elected secretary and he continues to

Rotary emerged from a national or-
ganization to an international organi
zation two years later at the Duluth
convention A short time previous to
this convention a club had been or
ganized at Winnipeg Canada and
during the convention a cablegram
was received from the Rotary Club of
London England asking for a char
ter Rotary had thus quickly evolved
from one club in 1905 to an interna
tional organization in 1912
Since 1912 the organization has
grown even more rapidly than during
the first seven years Today there are
more than one thousand Rotary Clubs
in ie world Altho the greater num
ber are in the United States where
the movement originated there are
now Rotary clubs in Canada New
foundland Great Britain and Ireland
Cuba South America the Republic of
Panama China India Australia and
New Zealand This growth seems all
the more ramarkable when we realize
that the organization has never at any
time employed paid organizers And
in addition extreme care has always
been exercised in surveying cities and
towns applying for membership to
make sure that such communities are
ready for a Rotary Club and are of
sufficient size from which to secure
a membership of representative men
and still have the membership rer
stricted to one man from each busi
ness or profession
