PROPAGANDA REFUTED Douglas, Oct. 21. Following is a letter received from ex Gov ernor Hunt, who is now cam paigning the state as the demo cratic candidate for governor, who has been the subject of much republican propaganda in timating that he was in sympa thy with the I. W. W. organiza tion, found to be traiterous and ready to commit treason during the world war. This letter should set at rest such reports and we commend it to our read ers: Major George II Kelly, Editor Douglas International, Douglas, Arizona. My Dear Major Kelly: Your communication of October Gth awaited my return to Phoenix yesterday. I note from your letter that certain prapaganda is being used relating to the I. W. W. and the allegations of certain Republicans that I am in sym pathy therewith. I thank you for your letter and your senti ments in connection with this propaganda. It is my usual policy to ignore such matters and to continue in my humble way to do what I consider to be right. It should be needless for me at tbis time to reply to such propaganda as that being used by certain Re publican politicians. All of the charges and innuendos which they are now making were hied in the shape of charges with the Foreign Relations Committee of the United States Senate, by certain Republican politicans, in an effort to prevent my continua tion as United States Minister to Siam. The charges were fully investigated by the United States Senate and dismissed as un worthy of consideration by a un animoas vote of the Foreign Re lations Committee, of which Warren G. Harding, then sen ator, now president of the Unit ed States, was a member. , My life has been lived largely in a mining community. 1 start ed life in Arizona working for wages, and up to the time of my election as Governor of Arizona I had been engaged in the com mercial and banking business. I was the president of the Old Dominion Bank of Globe and the Old Dominion Commercial Com pany, two of the leading insti tutions in their respective lines in the county seat of Gila coun ty. I. was in daily contact for a generation with the miners and working people of this state. I know and sympathize with their problems and it was my pleas ure, as well as my duty, as law maker and as Chief Executive of this state, to do what was possi ble to lighten the burden and make easier the lives of those people whose burden is indeed heavy. It, to me, appears bordering on the ridiculous for anyone to seriously consider that I, a form er hanker, a man with invest ments in property in many coun ties of the State of Arizona, would consider or sympathize with any group or organization of men whose philosophy of life would lead to the destruction of property values. You may rest assured that it never was my policy to encour age organizations or individuals who would seek to remedy in dustrial conditions by the de struction of property, or the policy of the violent overthrow of our constitutiou and laws. However, I have always been, and will continue to be, in sym pathy with the legitimate aspira tions ol organized labor. You will recall that during my administration such proper ties as the Inspiration, the Mag ma, the United Verde Extension, the Ray Hercules, the New Cor nelia and the United Eastern were developed and put on a producing basis, and that our agricultural and livestock indus tries were largely increased. Again thanking you for call ing this matter to my attention, and with kind personal regards, I am. Uespeetf ully yours, GKORGK W. P. Hi nt.

With this insight he is enabled to buy from those who set a low value on their goods and to sell to those who set a high value on his goods. But if he has the instincts of a real busi ness man he recognizes the value of time, of promptness, of friendship. He understands that the Telephone saves time; it enables him to close his deals promptly and to hold his friends through the spoken word. The success of the telephone is bottomed on its universality. The entire country is webbed by the wires of the Bell System. Every town, every hamlet, every customer is within the sound of your voice. The man who knows the value of things uses the LONG DISTANCE TELEPHONE. STATION-TO-STATION CALLS ARE QUICKER AND COST LESS. ASK OUR MANAGER. We Mountain States Telephone and Telegraph Go. PATAGONIA. Interesting News Items Clipped From the Pataonian. Frank Reichert and John Van j derwalker were in town Tuesday I from the Dragga Z mine. . j O. K. Franklin, well known j mining man of Nogales, was a 1 business visitor to Patagonia Wednesday. The Black Eagle is one of the regular shippers from the Pata gonia district and the property is looking better with each foot of work done in the shaft. Born, October 14, to Mr. and Mrs. Harry Steen of Boiuse City, Idaho, a daughter. Mrs. Steen was Miss Lavinia Barnett, daughter of W. H. Barnett of Patagonia. The new community piano ar rived Tuesday from Tucson, and was placed in the Opera House, where it will remain temporarily for use at social and religious functions. Letters from Mrs. Maud Fran cis and Mrs. Woodie Gatlin give the welcome news that they are improving in health and enjoy ing their visit on the coast. They are located temporarily at LongBeacb. James Rouotree, well driller, was in town Wednesday. He is drilling a well on the ranch of Supervisor James L. Finley, at Canille, and when that work is completed will move his rig to the Green Cattle Company's Can anea ranch, where he has a con tract to drill several wells. The work will require more than a year to complete. A. F. Gross of Duluth, Minn., who has purchased the Amer ican Boy and Costello group of claims in the Santa Rita moun tains, left Monday for his home, after having let a contract for driving a 2800 ft. tunnel through the properties for the double purpose of cutting the veins at a depth of 500 feet and taking care of the water. The tunnel will be the main haulage outlet for the ore and will drain the water from the property the cheapest and easiest way. The Black Eagle mine shipped another carload of ore to the Copper Queen smelter at Doug las last Tuesday. Two cars were in readiness for shipping, but only one car was spotted on the siding, which necessitated hold ing the balance of the ore until another car is available. In a recent letter from Col. R. R. Richardson, who has been visiting his brothei-in law and sister, Mr. and Mrs. O. D. Blake ley, of Franklin, Pa., for several weeks, the information is given that be has improved in health and will be home about October 30. The many friends of the colonel are glad to know that he is again to return to Patagonia, as it was feared when be left that his physical condition was such that he would remain in Pennsylvania permanently, al though he stated upon his de parture for the east that he would be back within a month. JIM PARKER DOING GOOD WORK The road work being done on the Patagonia Nogales road by Jim Parker, Jr. and his small crew of men deserves the com mendation of the citizens of the county. Most of the grades were badly washed during the summer rains and were in a de plorable condition. Supervisor O. F. Ashburn, who has the supervision of the greater part of the road, put Mr. Parker to work repairing the bad places, and his judgment has proved to be good in the selection of Mr. Parker for the work. All work so far performed has been of benefit to the traveling public and the cost of the work lias been very little compared with the results obtained. It is to be hoped that the su pervisors will see fit to keep Mr. Parker and his small crew at work on the road until it is again put in first class condition. Much money was spent by the county in building the Patagonia Nogales road and very little has been expended in its upkeep. Now that work has started grad ing the hills and widening the curves, it is hoped that the en tire thoroughfare will be repair ed before a halt is called. Pata gon ian. "CAMPBELL AND INDUSTRIAL PEACE." Industrial "peace" is what we have been suffering from for the last two or three years. What we need now is industrial "ac tivity." The fraraers of the slogan. "Campbell and Indus trial Peace" have hit the nail squarely on the head. Hunt's backers should have a slogan, too, and it should be "Hunt and Industrial Activity." If you care enough about labor history in Arizona and look up the data you will find that dur ing Hunt's administration there was but one strike and Governor Hunt quickly settled that by personally investigating affairs and refusing certain demands of the employers. Compare Campbell's record of "industrial peace" with the pre ceding administration. All the labor troubles except the one mentioned above have been un der the Campbell rule. Their seriousness is a matter of his tory. What did Campbell do to make peace between the strikers and their employers? Absolute ly nothing. Be fair (even in politics, if possible) and give credit where credit is due. At no time in the state's history have we bad as much "industrial peace" as we bad during Hunt's administra tion. The sentiment throughout the state is swinging strongly to ward the election of Geo. W. P. Hunt. Men who fought him politically in the past big men, rich men, influential citizens are showing their preference for him ind "the white elephant" over "Traveling Tom" and the swam of automobiles the tax payers are now supporting. Why are these men of money and influence flocking to the support of Mr. Hunt? Because they are tired of the mounting taxes, the extravagance, the useless and unnecessary boards and commissions established un der the present administration for the purpose of building up v Republican political machine. When you cast you vote ii November cast it for "Hunt and Industrial Activity" and not for "Campbell and Industrial Peace,J We have had too much indus trial "peace." Ex. TO AID LIVE STOCK RAISERS Los Angeles, Oct. As a means of aiding live stock raisers af fected by a drought in New Mex ico and Texas, the Southern Pa cific Company has applied to the Interstate Commerce Commis sion for permission to establish one day's notice temporary re ductions of Z0 per cent on live stock feed shipped from the Im perial, Salt River and Gila vai leys. This announcement has beeu made by J. T. Saunders, general freight agent of the Southern. Pacific. The emergency reduc tions will apply on shipments to points in New Mexico and to El Paso, on the lines of the South ern Pacific and of the El Past and Southwestern. Consignments of cottonseed meal, cake and hulls; corn atid articles taking corn rates; hay and alfalfa are affected by the emergency half rate cut arrang ed to aid the stockmen. The rates will expire Dec. 31, 1922. TWO PROPOSED AMENDMENTS. There will be two proposed constitutional amendments on the ipnpral election hnllot.s on November 7, one providing for a bond issue to build a paved road between Phoenix and Ehrenburg on the Colorado river, and another relating to changes in the public school system of the state. So far the year 1922 has been a bad year for constitutional amendments in Arizona, and we shall expect to see both these proposed amendments fail, as they should, in our opinion. It is not likely that the voters of the state will devote a sufficient amount of time to learn about the virtues and faults of the proposed edu cational amendment, and as to the boud issue amendment it is lead already.
