STAND BEHIND YOUR C. OF C. What arguments are most of- j ten advanced by those who re frain from standing behind the Chamber of Commerce financial ly? The most common one is, "because I don't get anything out of it personally." The sec ond is, "because the other fel low doesn't belong." The third is, "Because my competitor does not nay as I think he should or as inucli as I do." The Chamber of Commerce so functions as to benefit the com-liiuni'j-. The individual is bene fit U-ri by the commercial ad vancement of the city and by the improvement in civic mat ters. However, the Secretary daily performs a service for an individual member in the way of furnishing information or, send ing to outside inquirers informa tion regarding the business of a local concern. Taking out a membership for a personal gain, other than that derived from the accomplishment of the Chamber for the general-good, is an incor rect attitude. Don't join the Chamber of Commerce because the other fel low? belongs, or stay out because be is not a member. The con sciousness of having performed your own civic duty is all that should count. The fact what you think he should is not a more logical reason than that you should use crooked business methods because your competi tor does. No Chamber of Commerce could properly function and avoid at some time or other do ing something that an individual would take exception to or that would cause him to feel his own personal interest had been hurt. The officials and the board of directors make mistakes, but the many accomplishments so far overshadow the mistakes as to make the latter not worthy of serious notice. The board of directors spend much time and thought in the interest of No gales and it tries to use its best efforts to that end. The thirty members of the board are re sponsible business men of the community and truly represent a cross section of its commercial activity, and were elected to represent the individual mem bers. Democrat. POPULATION OF SONORA. MEX. Census figures for the State of Sonora, Mexico, for the year of 1VI21 show a total population of 265,384, as compared with 267, 474 returned by the 1910 census, a decrease in eleven years of 2,(390. Referring to the census fig ures, Consul Francis J. Dyer, of" Nogales, Sonora, says: "The exodus of large numbers of Mex icans to the United States dur ing the revolution, and the im portation by American agricul tural and mining interests of many thousands of contract la borers, a large percentage of whom are still in the United States because of the failure of the contractors to keep their agreement with the Immigration Service to .return the laborers to Mexico, easily accounts for the reported decrease in the popula tion of Sonora. "It may also be suggested that the present national government of Mexico is essentially Sonoran and that many citizens of Sonora with their families and connec tions, arl some times servants and retainers, have entered the government service in Mexico City and elsewhere. "Owing to the incomplete con dition of the census returns the office of the governor at Hermo sillo, is unable to give this con sulate the figures for this con sular district, but it has furnish ed the population returns for all the seventy three municipalities in the state, and the list, as fur nished, is given herewith: "Hermosillo, the capital, has 19,237 inhabitants; Nogales, 14, 753, which included consider able surrounding territory, the city proper having about 12,000 people; Agua Prieta, 5186; Al tar, 2148; Arizpe, 5175; Caborca, 3.657; Cananea, 11,269; Cumpas, 5,635; Imuris, 3.600; Magdalena, 6,255; Moctezuma, 3,074; Naco zari, 4,943; Pilares de Nacozari, 3,137; Santa Ana, 4,974; Santa Cruz, 920; Saric, 2,007; Ures, 6,332. "With industry of all kinds at a low ebb, the State has lost many of its people and a re sumption of activity in mining, agriculture, cattle raising and public works will make a great change in the course of the com iDg twelve months according to present indications." Mr. and Mrs. Lee Benham are reported to be ill at their resid ence in the Patagonia road.
