TYPOGRAPHICAL ERRORS Occasionally the proof-reader overlooks a word that has been misspelled and the paper goes out to our thousands of readers with what the printers term a typographical error. Our attention has been called to this, time after time, and we make this explanation so that you may know how it hap pens. An average of one man in ten thousand has a slight knowledge of the manner in which a newspaper is made up and is willing to forgive these mistakes. The others hold us responsible for every single error and are ready to condemn the editor without trial, judge or jury. We ask that you be more considerate, for we have two excellent dictionaries on our desk and always consult one of them whenever we are in doubt. We are willing to take the blame for all grammatical errors, but respectfully request that you charge all typographical errors to the proof-reader. LABOR TROUBLES Phoenix is experiencing all sorts of labor trouble and a solution is no where in sight Many favor the open shop and are determined to carry their views; while the union men are equally determined to force their demands. Although the unions have not always been fair to our peo ple, the Tribune has never been nor is it now opposed to organized labor. If the demands of the union men be just, they should be granted. If unjust, the difficulty should be adjusted by a board of arbitrators, chosen front members of the union and from the employers. For one side to hold out unyieldingly is wrong. Come together, gentlemen, and have a mutual under standing as between man and man. Be men, try to settle your difficulties amicably and satisfactorily ever holding in mind that just and golden rule promulgated by the greatest arbiter the world has ever known: “As ye would that men should do to you do ye even so unto them.” If this is done the men will return to work and the progress of this great and growing metropolis will not be retarded. Just so long as one side refuses to consider the rights of the other just so long will the trouble last. One or the other must yield a point. And remember, men, that there are three sides to every question; your side, which you believe to be right, the other fellow’s side, which, of course, you believe is wrong and the third side is the RIGHT SII>E, which sometimes is entirely different to what you or the other fellow thinks. A PECULIAR TYPE We fail to understand that type of leaders in the south who are con tinually howling about the criminal element among us. No sane person condones the act of a criminal, whether black or white, and our statistics show as many criminal characters among other races as in our own. The speech of Bishop Phillips before the conference of colored ministers at Lexington. Ky., would lead one to believe that the most vicious criminals ar«. to be found among members of our race. Perhaps the Reverend sir is of the Moton type and is trying to curry favor with the southern whites. Such leaders are little less than dangerous and the rising generation can not afford to observe closely their teachings. To do so would mean destruc tion of the finer qualities which go to make brave, courageous and manly men. PERSHING’S BLUNDER General Pershing’s stock dropped ninety per cent after his famous ad dress before the students at Hampton institute. He praised the colored soldiers and complimented the colored race for their splendid record, all of which sounds good and looks well in print; but the mistake the general made was in not addressing these remarks to members of his own race. We know what our boys have done and we know that we have a right to be proud of their record on the battlefields. There are many of the oppo site race who do not know and it’s to them that the knowledge should be imparted. We like a man who tells the world what he thinks of us better than we do one who will wait until he gets us off to ourselves to tell us about our virtues. It takes a brave man to do a thing of that kind, but any one can whisper sweet nothings in your ears. o ADVERTISING Many of our readers do not realize fully the value of the little sentence: “I saw your advertisement in the Tribune.” It’s a short sentence with only seven words, but will work wonders for your paper if used when you make a purchase from one of our advertisers. We suggest that our readers make more frequent use of the expression, for it is of inestimable value to us. Surely, we are pleased to hav.e you patronize Tribune advertisers and we are doubly pleased whenever you remember to say: "1 saw your advertise’ meat in the Tribune.” NEGRO LEADERSHIP (By William Pickens) Now and then somebody pays an indirect and unintended compliment to the growing power and group consciousness of colored Americans. Re cently the enemies of the Negro race have "paid attention” to the Negro press. They have even "cussed” out the colored papers in congress and wanted to legislate them out of existence in that Graham bill. That is the greatest recommendation ever given the Negro press. When they meant nothing and stood for nothing and had no sort of backbone about anything, nobody worried about them. Some people smiled patronizingly at their platitudes. When one got a little bolder than the rest they killed it, as they did The Voice of the Negro in Atlanta, Ga. But now the Negro press as a whole has risen to a tone'and pitch that commands the ear of the ENEMIES of the Race. But the greatest compliment ever paid the growing consciousness of the race, is the fact that the enemy is now beginning to worry over the kind of LEADERS which the Negro race is appointing for itself. It need not be asserted and cannot be denied, that in the South the white people have generally "appointed" such Negro leaders as they saw fit. They did it indirectly; they would listen only to such and such a “level-headed” Negro— and when colored people wanted to confer with white people, this Negro must be the medium through which—however, the colored people might despise and destruct this very Negro. And, behold the other day a white congressman shouted out words to the effect that white people had better begin to pay more attention to the leaders which they ordain for the Negro, lest the leaders which the Negro is appointing for himself get the better of the matter. He points out in plain words that the super-imposed leaders are beginning to be discarded by the colored race, and asks that the w'hite people who want “their Negroes” to stay on the job, had better begin to give extra attention to them and help to build them up in the request of colored people. The congressman's idea is the old one; that whenever these favorpd leaders ask for anything “for the race,” the w’hites must seem to give ear to it and to hear it favorably,—so that the race will fall in line behind these usuable leaders. To be brief and to the point, it is just like bear hunting; we set a trap and leave a piece of beef for the bear —BUT in order that we might eat the whole bear later.

PLACES FOR CONSUMPTIVES Hundreds of people come to Arizona every month suffering from tubercu losis. Some of them go to sanatori ums, but more are seeking places, especially out of town, where they can live quietly and can be fed sim ply with plenty of milk and eggs as a foundation for getting well. There are many ranches and country places in Arizona that could accommodate one or more such individuals to ad vantage and at the same time perform a very decided service for humanity. Persons, anywhere in the state, who can find room for even one health seeker, are requested by the Arizona Anti-Tuberculosis Society to send their names to the society’s headquar ters at 300 East Adams street, Phoe nix, together with the information as to the class of boarder desired, accom modations, location*,costs, etc. A list is being arranged of places where healthseekers will be welcomed. This data will be of enormous value since many who are only slightly indisposed and are prepared to *>ay well now go away because they cau find no satis factory place to stay.

Say no, because you never have and never will, and you will be kicking the stuffing out of yourself later on, you mind now what I tell you, when you can buy Ix 6 and 2x6 for $35.00 per 1,000 square feet and don’t do it. A car of trimming timber at $45 to S6O per 1,000 sq. ft. No matter if you have use for it now or not, you will later on, and, as I said, you will be kick ing yourself hard, and you may be laid up for months on account of not doing your duty by buying the stuff when you have the opportunity to get it cheap. The old saying is, “every qne in the world has a chance sometime.” That is you must jump at it. Take it in; it may be a long time before another opportunity is offered. A few dollars buys a big load here, a few dollars buys enough to build a 3-room house. lam trying to explain to you what you miss if you don’t hurry and get here with your wagon at once, load it yourself, figure it up yourself. If I find you don’t pile on enough, I will tell you. If you can figure more « square feet in a load than I can I will give you back half your money. No telling what you can do here. v You can load it yourself, count it yourself, pay for it yourself. I forgot to tell you a little secret I got onto in this lumber business. Never trust anyone.* That way it is impossible for you to lose anything. I can say if I sell that 1,000 feet of lumber at a $5 profit, I've got it. I don’t need any bonded collectors with a collar on a foot high. I don’t need any bookkeeper to tell me, “ I guess that account is lost.” Nothing do ing here in that line. If you or your next door neigh bor buys lumber from me, it takes the spot cash be fore it leaves. Do you tumble now how it is possible for me to make these low prices? Os course you do. Some of my customers lately have said: “I’ll pay you when delivered.” Nothing doing in that line. Some say: “You bring it out to the house and my wife will pay you.” Now look here. I tried all that. I don’t mean to say that the wife was no good. When my truck unloaded the stuff and got no money, it was simply a case of her attending to lier household duties. The kids came out and told my driver, “Mamma had to go to the grocery store to get something to keep the family from starving to death.” One big boy thought he might lighten the heart of my poor driver by saying: “Papa’s got a ranch with 40 pigs on it; he will pay you.” Now here I am going to quit by saying: Come along if you need lumber. I’ve got everything for building a house. I’ve got the stuff that makes the farmer smile when he gets a load of my $35 stuff to fence in his cattle, hogs, chickens. Bulldogs, wildcats and wolves can’t get through ’em. Remember the price, $35,00 to $75.00 per 1,000 square feet. iiijiiiiiiißMaiiiuiiiiiiiiißiiiiißiiTiiaWiiimriiß^ißiTa'iiiMfjriiißTiaiTaiiaiiiiiaiiajiaiißiiriiaiiiirariaiiiiiaiiiTraMaiiiiißMßrißiiaiTiaßria 1 Ohlrau Lumber Yard and Phoenix Planing Mill 5Q2-510 South First Ave. .•-' ' ' / I deliver by truck at cost, but you must be here when it is loaded and pay spot cash or it won’t move.
