the most attention of any bill yet introduced.
This bill was presented by Mr. Smith, tho
only member of the House from Yavapai

been from Pima county -the objibtRmto it
being that it takes away one of tlie principal,
agricultural districts of the county and with
it a large share of the resident population.
I bsvc made mo opposition to it because I
thought it was right that the new eounty
should be made for the convenience of those
living within the riropi boundaries. It
