SERVICE. h&M NOGALES MAN MAKES GOOD How General Abelardo Rodriguez Pre vents Hold Up of Train. The following story of how General Abelardo Rodriguz, of the Mexican army, and a former resident of Nogales, prevented the hold up and robbery of a passenger train on the Southern Pacific of Mexico railway, ap peared in Tuesday morning's Democrat : "Through the prompt action of General Abelardo Rodriguez, chief of military operations of the state of Nayarit, Mexico, the hold up and robbery of a South ern Pacific of Mexico train, was prevented near Rosario station, 60 miles south of Mazatlan, last Satuiday morning. "Information received here yesterday was to the effect that three of a band of Mexican ban dits who attempted to hold up the train, bad been killed by General Rodriguez aud 2 mem bers of his staff and two Mexi can bandits had been severely wounded. A report that two of the members of the Mexican officer's party were wounded, could not be confirmed. "According to the story of a man who was aboard the train reaching here yesterday, the at tern pted robbery occurred a short distance north of Rosario, the robbers evidently having infor mation regarding a shipment of bars of silver bullion that had been placed aboard the train at that point, consigned to the Un ited States by a mining company operating near Rosario. "The robbers consisting of a band of 25 Mexican bandits stop ped the train and ordered the train crew to cut loose the ex press car and the locomotive. While preparations were being made to obey the orders, a mem ber of the train crew managed to slip back to the rear car where General Rodriguez and two of his officers were seated and informed them of what was going on. "General Rodriguez and his officers who were armed with automatic revolvers, left their coach and opened fire, five of the bandits dropping at the first valley, three being killed. "The balance of the robber gang took cover in flight and word of the attempted' hold up was hashed to Mazatlan. Gen eral Angel Flcres, chief of mili tary operations in northern Mex ico with headquarters at Mazat ian, immediately left for the scene of the robbery with two auto loacs'of soldiers and a spe cial train with a detachment of soldiers was dispatched over the S. P. de Mexico. "It is expected that the ban dits will all be captured as the soldiers were put on their trail within three hours after the at tempted hold up, the special train having been made up and sent out of the Mazatlan yards within forty minutes after the news of the affair had been re cei ved . "General Rodriguez, is a broth er of Fernando F. Rodriguez, the Grand avenue hardware mer chant and attended school in Nogales. He has been in charge of the troops in the state of Na yarit for the past three months and was on his way to Mazatlan on official business, fortunately for the passengers, being on the train that was held up. "Previous to being sent to Nayarit, General Rodriguez was military commander of Lower California. Captain Manuel Pro to, also a well known resident of Nogales, is chief of staff to Geoeral Rodriguez and is thought to have been with him in his fight with the bandits. "No loot was secured by the bandits and the passengers on the train were not molested, ac cording to travelers who brought word of the affair to this city." Phoenix, June 11. Arizona's share of the $50,000,000 federal aid appropriation for road work in the United States, virtually agreed to by house and senate committees in Washington will be approximately $700,000 ac cording to word received by Thomas Maddock, state engineer ARIZONA WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL REVIEW.

McCutefian is movint' the machinery used in construe tion of the Nogales city well back to Patagonia, from where it will be distributed to the vari ous places from whence it carnf the mining camps. C. A Pierce, local assayer, left Tuesday evening with the local Boy Scouts for the Hua chuca mountains, where they will camp until Friday, when they will go to Monkey Springs, at the Ashburn ranch, for a few days before returning home. Ed. Hainline, has finished the addition to the Patagonian office and will immediately commence the rebuilding of the boarding house at the Morning Glory mine at Mowry. The rebuilding of the boarding house seems to in dicate that work on the mine will soon be resumed. The Black Eagle mine has a carload of ore on the platform awaiting shipment to the smelt er. As treatment charges are too high at R Paso, Mr. Mc Cutchan, one of the former own ers of the mine, thinks the Doug las smelter may take the ore and save himself and partner, Mike Hogan, some money. While searching the home of J-'sus Juarez, one of the alleged postoffice robbers, Sunday night, Deputy Sheriff Lou Quinn and Pat Patterson uncovered a mys terious concoction of milk like consistency and color and a bot tie of denatured alcohol, sup posed to have been the "makins" of 40 mulepower "hooch." Owing to the fact that the local ball players failed to show up for the game Sunday with a Nogales team, and the team be ing made up of men picked up at the grounds, our boys were badly beaten. Manager R C. Blanbon is getting discouraged, and unless the regulars show more interest in the game in future the team may be dis banded. Sunday morning a camping party left for the Santa Rita mountains. The top of "Baldy" is their destination bat they ex pect to explore other points of interest as well. They will be gone 3 or 4 days. Those who went were: Miss Margaret Fra zier, Miss McCollister, Mrs. James Frazier, Mr. Joiner, Ralph Klene and Dr. and Mrs. L. W. Klene. The Rain Valley school year was brought to an end by a pic nic and a swimming party at Monkey Borings. It was well attended and enjoyed by all. Miss Margaret McCollister is the Rain Valley teacher and it is understood that she will return next fall after spending her sum mer vacation in "The Flagstaff Normal." Miss McCollister is from the State of Oklahoma. The spot for drilling the test oil well, has at last been definite ly settled, and is about two miles north of the Vaughn school house, and the erection of the derrick is almost completed. About five carloads of machin ery and material have been un loaded at the site of the well. The residents of Vaughn are very much interested in the out come of the test well, and are hoping for a gusher to be brought in. The warm weather Sunday drove a large number of people to various swimming pools in the county. One of the most popular 'ole swimming holes' was that of Monkey Springs, on the beautiful Oscar Ashburn ranch, seven miles north of Pa tagonia. A crowd was at the springs all day, many people going from Nogales and Patago nia. A West Virginia visitor de clared "it's the prettiest spot I have ever seen in Arizona." AGRICULTURAL REVIEW.

It is admitted that next to the press and the schools, the great est educational force in the na tion is the moving picture. Mentalities, morals, the tastes, thoughts and ideals of the peo ple, especially the younger gen erations, are formed by the movies. Former Postmaster- General Hays former national chairman of the Republican party, was selected at $150,000 a year, as educational movie manager. He was selected by the great syndicates that produce and con trol an industry that collects tk billion a year from the people. Mr. Hays has a Herculean job, and a Cyclopean responsibility the moral character of the com ing generation rests on his shoulders. Without moral and legal re straint, organized producers, in terested only in wringing mil lions out of their theatres, are a national menace. A young nation, formed on free institutions and democratic ideals, must safe guard its ris ing generations from wholesale contamination. The Fatty Arbuckle hotel de bauch was only an incident. Consider the wholesale advertis ing and showing of salacious pictures. Take the advertisements in the daily press featuring a prom inent actress in "Fascination." An almost naked girl in a "play of Spanish passion." The advertisements them selves, to say nothing of the picture, dragged through the mentality of millions of growing children what have we? Can the movie industry be saved from the greed of immoral exploitation ? IS THIS "EQUAL TAXATION?" Joint stock land banks, semi federal institutions, are now be ing rapidly organized in all parts of the country. The attraction lies in the fact that the bonds issued by the banks to get the money to loan to farmers are free of all Fed eral, state and local taxation. Such bonds are in great de mand by large income taxpayers and sell well. Of course by as much as these bonds are exempt from taxation by so much are the taxes on other people's property increas ed. As there are now som"e $30, 000,000,000 in tax exempt or par tially tax exempt bonds out standing in the United States, it is easy to see why taxes of the ordinary citizen are mounting so rapidly. A man with $100,000 to invest today puts it into tax exempt bonds, pays no taxes, has no worried and employs no labor. No wonder there is growing demand for a change in this sys tem so that all will pay taxes alike.
