A Yankee "Called"
A Yankee passenger In a train the
other day was wearying his fellow
travelers with "tall" stories, and re-
marked: "We can start with a twelve-
story hotel one month and have It
finished the next." This was too
much for a burly Yorkshire man who
sat next to him. "Man, that's nowt,"
he replied. "Ah've seen 'em when
ah've bin going to work Just laying
the foundation stones of a row of
houses and when ah've bin coming
home at niet they've bin putting the
folks out for back rent."—London

Why should the people of Arizona
be compelled to accept union with a
people who aro allen In race, language
and sentiment to them. They should
have the chance to vote on the ques-
tion rhetehr they are to be Joined
to New Mexico. Their natural right
to govern themselves is as good as
that of the people of any other Ameri-
can state or territory—as good as that
of the colonists of 1775.
The real argument for Joint state-
hood is based on the assumption that
the Arlzonians, reinforced by the
growing English-speaking element la
New Mexico, will eventually be dom-
ti.ant in the joint state, if it is admit-
ted, and that there will never be suf-
ficient population to warrant the ad-
mission of two states. As a matter of
fact, if there is to be any state there,
it must be but a single state.
But It will no do to asume too much
In sealing the fate of these people.
If the Arlzonians would rather remain
a territory than take the chance of
coming uppermost eventually in the
Joint state, they should have the
chance to say so. Better leave both
New Mexico and Arizona out of the
Union for another generation than
bring in ont -half of the region under
bondage to the other half.—New York
