San Francisco Judges to Make
Guilty Choose Between
Fines and Investment
Instead of forcing persons guilty of
minor transgressions of the law to pay
- fines, in future Police and Superior
Court Judges of San Francisco, aB a
corrective measure tending to charac
ter building, will give offenders ap
pearing before them an alternative of
helping themselves by investing in
United States War Savings Stamps.
"I shall be glad,” said Judge T. I.
Fitzpatrick, Presiding Judge of the
Police Court, “to assist in the move
ment in this direction as far as I can,
under the provisions of the charter of
this city and county, upon the thesis
that a thrifty man is a better citizen
and that many of our economic ills
and much of our present day social
* unrest are due directly to thriftless
The policy agreed to by the San
Francisco judges is a move to pro
• mote a better citizenship among those
persons coming before them upon mis
demeanor charges. Fining them,
while serving as a corrective meas
ure, lowers the self supporting ability
of defendants, whereas compelling
them to purchase interest earning se
curities of the United States Govern
* ment, in the judges’ belief, will give
them a start toward building up a
bank account, and, proportionately, a
feeling of responsible citizenship. The
only condition attached to the alter
native of purchasing securities In
stead of paying the fine will be that
the defendants must hold the securi
ties until maturity.

Storm Destroys Many Navajo
The storm of the past few days
has been a very disastrous one for
the bridges of the county. Heavy
snows fell in the mountains to the
south, after which it commenced
raining and has continued with little
interruption in the southern part of
the county ever since. The result
has been that a veritable torrent has
been rushing down the Little Colo
rado river at Holbrook, in which can
be seen large pieces of timber and
clusters of timber bolted together,
indicating that a number of the
bridges in the southern part of the
county have been washed away.
Late telephone advises inform us
that the Apache railroad bridge at
Snowflake is partially washed away,
one end having completely gone,
making it impossible for trains to
travel until repairs are ithade. All
the engines of the Apache are at the
other end of the road, so that it is
impossible for any train to go to
Snowflake. It is said that the Santa
Fe is considering running one of its
trains up there.
The Cottonwood bridge at Snow
flake is reported out.
The iron bridge at Taylor is said
to have also been washed away.
The east bridge at Snowflake on
the St. Johns road is reported gone.
The bridge at Shumway is very
The Snowflake dam, used for ir
rigation in the town, is said to have
It is said that the water ran over
the Woodruff dam to a death of two
feet, but it has receded now and it is
believed the dam is safe. This will
be the first time in a number of
years that it has not been washed
Telephone lines have luckily | bden
working well. They say that it is
still rainihg at Snowflake and Show
Word comes from the north end
of the county to the effect that the
bridge over Laßue Wash is gone or
is badly damaged.
No damage has occured at Hol
brook, as there is no snow here, and
though it rained considerably no
damage so far has been done.—Hol
Storms amt Wrecks
Last week during the heavy snow
storm the Santa Fe Railroad had nu
merous wrecks on this division, and
we are informed that quite a number
of the railroad men were discharged
on account of them. The men who
were discharged were practically all
old experienced railroad men who
have worked for the company and
lived here for years and know their
business thoroughly. It seems to us
I to be an injustice upon the men to
, call them to go out in a blinding
snow storm, and then when some
, minor wreck occurs on account of
them being unable to see, to dis
charge these men. The Company
should take intro consideration the
conditions under which the wreck oc
. cured before discharging promis
[ ciously. It has come to such a state
that when these storms come up, the
i old-timers here lay off, in order to
avoid any possible trouble.
