The Winslow Mail.
J. H. CHAPMAN, Editor. Entered as second-class matter at the poatoffice f Winslow, Arizona, under Act of Congress of March 1. 1879. Published every Friday. Sub cription, $2.00 per year. Friday, ... May 30, 1919 President Wilson’s suggestion to Congress that the war time prohibition law that is effective July Ist, be suspended, has stir red up a real hornet’s nest, and Mr. President has reason to be thankful he is in Paris. On the face of it his recommendation appears to be a bargain and sale of the remnant of the democrat ic party to the distillers and the brewers. Let us hope that the time will soon come again when the Presi dent of the United States will represent one co-ordinant branch of our government, and be a servant of the people. For six years now Mr. Wilson has been usurping power of all other de partments of the government until he thinks he is the divinely annointed dictator to the people, and his edict must be accepted without question. Germany is objecting to the peace terms laid down for them to sign because they spell “eco nomic destruction, political dis honor, and moral degredation.” The terms offered do not mean economic destruction, and it would be an impossibility to con struct any terms that could add to the political dishonor or moral degredation of the German Em pire. They have violated every rule of civilized warfare, mur dering non-combatants, ravishing defenseless women, torturing and killing innocent babies, and now when their power for rapine and destruction has been conquered, like all yellow-streaked cowards, they wail and whine over the terms of peace laid down to them. The Arizona Leader says it has been informed that betting two to one is being offered in Hol brook that oil in commercial quantities will be struck in the Holbrook fields by July 4th. It is just such talk that is responsi ble for the daily growing senti ment that Holbrook field is simp ly a stock jobbing boom with no prospect for oil. There will be no oil struck in that field by July 4th, in any quantity, for the simple reason that no well in the field will be deep enough by that time. It is the boomers who are out after the money they can get from suckers who are making these wild predictions, and their only interest in the field is to get the money, with no thought or care whether oil is discovered or not. The League of Nations is not a partisan political question. It is the hobby of sentimental fad dists in all the different par ties, even including the socialists. Our democratic friends who con sider it a crime to get out of step with their democratic President on any issue, whether right or wrong, should remember that ex-President Taft was the origi nal sponsor for a League of Na tions, and the last time he ran for the Presidency he found him self without a party. The un frocked preacher, Herron, who is a socialist and advocate of free love, is also another strong ad vocate of a League of Nations. He is strong for the family tie of nations, but not for family ties in the human race. Here we have them. A repuidiated so cialists, a repudiated republican, and soon a repudiated democrat, all standing for a League of Na tions, ready to sacrifice the lib erties and independence of our government, while the mass of our people are opposed to sur rendering their rights and priv ileges and forced into an alliance with European powers. Abusing Land Commissioner. The Winslow Wail has been ac cused of unjustly criticising the acts of our state land commis sioner, who is dubbed by Dun bar’s Weekly as “Honest Billy’’ Mouer, and to prove his position Dunbar quotes the land law wherein it is the duty of the commissionerto approve all trans fers of leases. Now, while Un cle John is so busy quoting the law, we trust he will quote the following from the public land code, Section 31, and give us a valued treatise on how faithfully “Honest’’ Billy is adhering to the law. Section 31 is as fol lows: In case two or more applicants apply to lease the same land, the commissioner shall approve the application of the one, who, after investigation or hearing by the commissioner shall appear to have the best right to such lease, but if it should appear that none of the applicants has any rights or equities superior to those of another, the commissioner may after a stated time, and after due notice to all such applicants, re ceive sealed bids submitted in ac cordance with such rules and reg ulations as the commissioner may adopt, and shall approve the ap plication of the bidder, who, in all respects is eligible to hold a lease upon the land and will pay the highest rental therefor. When “Honest’’ Billy explains why this section is observed more in the breach than in the observ ance, which will be very satis factory to such democratic edit ors as Mr. Mills of the Messen ger, we will quote another sec tion of the public land code for more explanations. The one section “Honest” Billy is observ ing very closely, over which there can be dispute, is the one relat ing to his salary, and drawing his stipend monthly from the state treasurer. Let it be said to the credit of Senator Ashurst that he prompt ly made his position clear on the recommendation of the President that war-time prohibition be re pealed. Senator Ashurst is op posed to the repeal, and plainly declares that on this issue he and the President have come to the parting of the ways. We do not know Dr. Wade, of Boston, but he is our choice for President of the United States. He recently gave out that taking baths was not conducive to good health, and cites that scores of the handsomest women in Boston and healthiest men have not had a bath in ten years. We are for him, to alieviate the terrors of Saturday night. “Some months ago The Mes senger spoke of the editor of the Winslow Mail as an able, consist ent and instructive writer. Now we wish to take it all back and apologize to the public for that hasty opinion. Keeping about three weeks behind the whining press, he opposes the league of nations, abuses Uncle Billy Moeur for the action of the fourth leg islature and misquotes the attor ney general”—Messenger. We are not surprised at the Phoenix Messenger. Mr. Mills belongs to that class of demo cratic editors who would enter no protest if the democratic state officials stole the Goddess of Liberty off the capitol build ing, providing he was getting his share of the official patron age from the officials. He prides himself that he is one of the dem ocrats who supports the adminis tration, being a better party man than a patriot. The Winslow Mail editor is not running a news paper for official patronage, and a republican or democratic of ficial who fails in his duty to the people gets no comfort or sup port from the editor. Mr. Mills’ Messenger is simply a time-serv er for democratic office-holders, and he is ever ready with his snivelling sycophancy to add to the gate receipts of the counting office. His opinion of the writer concerns us very little, as we can have him spilling his fulsome flattery any time we find it nec essary to criticise some republi can official for direlection of duty, or pay a deserved compli ment to some democratic official.
