BUICK WILL BUILD THBM Republican Candidate For Governor Speaks To Audience Here (Continued from Page 1) levying oT a property tax and a. reasonable royalty upon all power generated. This should wield so much revenue that taxation will become lighter and lighter with each additional unit of develop ment. “It is of vital importance that an early effort be made to effect an agreement between Arizona, California and Nevada, whereby the rights and equities of each of those states may be fairly present ed, considered and adjusted. The time for such a conference between accredited representatives of the states named was never more pro pitious than now. It is my belief that fully as much can be secured for Arizona under such an agree ment, w r ith the necessary Congres sional approval, as could be ex pected fi*om the most favorable out come of adversary proceedings. If I am elected governor it will be my first concern to see that the way is paved for such an agree ment. Such an agreement ought, and doubtless would, lead to the construction of the initial dam at a point on the river more satisfac tory to Arizona than Boulder Can yon dam. It would unite the three states upon a safe policy respect ing a possible treaty with Mexico relating to the waters of the Colo rado. and it would tend to unify the seven basin states upon a plan of development by the Federal gov ernment. It would insure prompt and vigorous action, and relief from the appalling economic loss now being imposed by inaction. It would transform Arizona and in vigorate the entire Southwest. Those selected to represent Ari zona in the preparation of such an agreement should not be politicians or persons actuated by mercenary or personal interests, as distin guished from the proper and pa triotic interest that every right minded citizen of the state should have. Such representatives should include a mining man ,an engineer, a farmer and a lawyer. Problems of the Farmer. “The problems of the farmer are becoming a matter of national anx iety. No other class of people re ceives so little for the time and ef fort expended, as do the farmers. In our own state vocational educa tional work should be fostered, ag riculture should be made a course of study in our common schools, a text book on farming should be em ployed. and if necessary, the con stitution of the state should be so amended as to fully legalize co operative action among farmers and dairymen. As no class of peo ple is more seriously interested in education than the farmers, they are entitled to larger representa tion on the more important educa tional boards. Neither the state nor the nation can prosper if ag riculture languishes. Banking. “It is worthy of note that al though there have been about 20 failures among state banks of Ar izona during the past five years, only one national bank has closed it’s doors. The reason is that the rules under -which national banks are conducted, and the intelligent, though exacting, supervision that is imposed, tend toward safe and conservative banking. Our bank ing laws are fairly good, and need but slight revision, but our state banking department needs drastic and immediate rehabilitation. A capable and courageous banking superintendent is the soundest guarantee of safety to the deposi tor. Taxation. “Arizona is now burdened with the highest tax rate in its history, without corresponding benefits. In New Brands Applied for August sth, 1928 W C left ribs Wm. Rob’t.

Together with Mike O’Brien, his brother. Mr. O’Brien owns a ranch in Spring Valley, near Williams, where the brothers produce crops under mod el conditions. Mr. O’Brien states that his sec tion is enjoying prospects of an extremely prosperous year, and that the large crops of potatoes on the O’Brien ranch will be ready for harvesting in a short time. The mountain winter lettuce is a comparatively new variety, and a supply will soon be available in local markets. Pheasants Released By Game Warden At ! Picacho Dam FLORENCE Six ring-neck pheasants where set free to run wild at the Picacho reservoir last week by State Game Warden D. E. Pettis. The birds will be protected by the state game laws and after several years, an open season will probably be declared once each year when hunters may kill the birds, it is said. Mr. Pettis stated that a number of wild turkey are being raised for the purpose of stocking various mountain sections of the state and that arrangements are under way to receive a herd of buffalo and elk to be turned out in the White mountains. More than 560,000 trout from the Springerville hatch ery have been planted this year in the mountai nstreams of the state, Mr. Pettis said. spite of most positive assurances of reduction, the tax burden has mounted annually. This cannot and must not continue. There does not seem to have been even a fee ble attempt to practice economy in the disposition of public funds, and wide-spread extravagance is ap parent It has been said that the governor cannot do it all, but by making persistent and resolute re sistance to extravagant appropria tions, by the use of the veto power if necessary, and especially by calling the attention of the tax payers to leaks in the state treas ury, fixing the responsibility, he can directly and indirectly bring about great savings of public mon ey. It will be my purpose to see that rigid economy is substituted for the laxity now prevailing in al most every department of the state, if I am elected governor. We cer tainly do not need to levy more taxes, but we desperately need to conserve the tremendous sums we are already extracting from the pocketbooks of our taxpayers, and to employ unceasing diligence to ward some measure of relief.” Party Success. Judge Clark aroused high enthu siasm among his Republican hear ers when he declared that every political indication pointed to Re publican party success at the polls this fall, provided the party pre sented a united front to the ene my. “Any attempt to foster a schism in the party will be resented by all true Republicans,” he declared, “and is foredoomed to failure. For my part, I already stand pledged to do all I can. to secure the elec tion of every nominee on the party ticket next November.” TAX EQUALIZATION BOARD FIXES RATE OF 67 CENTS ON SIOO AS STATE LEVY LOWELL FIREMEN WILL HAVE NEW HOME SOON BISBEE Construction of the new home of the Lowell fire de partment, located opposite the mu nicipal market, is nearing comple tion and is expected to be ready for occupancy before the end of this month.

Sawyer, which apparently promises an interesting contest at the pri mary election, September 7th. Some interesting features of the list of filers of petitions are the preponderance of Democrats over Republican office-seekers, and the offices that offer no competition in the primaries. The list follows: For judge of Superior court—J. E. Crosby, Republican; D. E. Mc- Laughlin and Thorwald Larson, Democrats. For Clerk of Court —Lloyd C. Henning, Democrat. For County Attorney—P. A. Saw yer, Democrat. For Assessor —Wallace Shumway Democrat. For Treasurer Joe Fischer, Wallace Ellsworth and Bill Rich ards, Democrats. Supervisor, District I—C. E. Owens, Republican; J. H. Frost and W. H. Chamberlin, Democrats. Supervisor, District 2—F. L. Ri ley and George J. Schaeffer, Dem ocrats; J. A. Greaves, Republican. Supervisor District 3 W. H. Denham, Democrat, and J. L. Wil lis. Republican. Representative, District I—Don T. Udall, Democrat, and for District 2, Sam W. Proctor, Democrat. State Senator —R. L. Moore, G. W. Nelson and George Hammond, Democrats. Constable, Winslow—J. E. Walk er, Republican; Tom Hubbard and George Haynes, Democrats. Winslow Justice of Peace — A. 0. La Prade, Democrat, and J. B. Drumm, Republican. Holbrook Justice of Peace—D. W. Easley, Republican. Constable, Holbrook —F. E. O’- Connell, Republican. Precinct Committeemen: Holbrook. Chas. Osborne, Sidney Sapp, Democrats; Arthur F. Switz er, Guy Axline, John S. Taylor. Chet Leavitt, W. B. Woods, Frank B. Rees and Sam Eaton, Republi cans. Pinedale—John Zellaha, Repub lican. Winslow —C. L. Giragi and R. L. Moore, Democrats; O. L. Gray, Re publican. In several cases, it will be seen that of two men seeking office, they are of opposite political faith, and lacking competition on their re spective tickets in the primaries, are certain to be opponents in the general election in November. Sev eral candidates for re-election have no opposition etiher in the primar ies or in the later election, and in other races only one party is represented by two or three candi dates.

At the same time a total net valuation of $653,162,397’ on all assessed propelty in Ac zc la was announced The customary segregation of assessed properties by classifications will be somewhat deferred this year, owing to me illness of M. S. Stanley, account ant to the commission, who re cently was opet uU J on for aper-- dicitis. “The largest general appropria tion in the 1926 budget,” says a statement issued by the commission at the time the new tax rate was made public, “is for educational purposes. The largest single ap propriation is that for the common schools, which is fixed at ,?25 per capita of average attendance in all the schools of the state. This amount aggregates a total of sl,- 529,999, poetically all of which is returned to the several counties on the basis of $25 per capita, as here tofore stated.

Other items, such as interest on public debt and re demption of bondsfi aggregate a to tal of somewhat less than SIOO - 000.” ■ o Lowell —$5,000 fire station to bo built.
