This afternoon and tonight affairs
have becomo alarming. Men and wo

tho howling depositors back with clubs,
as it was feared that tho bank would he

nnd Cashier McGrath wero arrested to

and gave bail in the stun of $2000.
The excitement over the suspension
of tho banks continues. When the de

ment hero concerning the First Na
tional bank failure was intensified last
night when tbo condition of things nt
IIoutzdale was learned. Tho IIoutzdale
bank is a private concern bought by
Dill last spring. When Dill took charge
he placed John B. McUrnth, in whom
the community had the utmost confi
dence, in charge ns cashier. This at
once stimulated business and on the
first day over $89,(XH) was received in
deposits, mostly coming from poor min
ers. At that time tho deposits did not
rench $00,000, but through McGrath's
well-known integrity nnd popularity
they grow until yesterday morning
when they reached $200,000.
Upon tho opening of the bank yester
dny McGrath had occasion to telephone
the First National bank concerning n
check and was astonished to learn that
it wns closed. Ho at once closed his
bank, but had already received several
deposits. The word spread rapidly and
beforo long sevcrnl hundred depositore
were on the streets. Ignorant Huns
nnd Slavs, who have deposits running
from $200 to $20,100, grew frnntic when
they learned that their money wns in
danger. The larger depositors at once
sought Cashier McGrath and he in
formed them that although the deposits
reached $200,000 less than $30,000 in

Dill had removed u large amount of

And Deliver the Cloning Speach of the
Gentlemen of the Convention : Our de
liberations aro about to close. The con
stitution for the future state of Arizona
is completed, nnd in a few moments one
of the most important and interesting
events which can occur in the history of
any territory will hnvo closed. Tho
finished product of our labors represents
great care and dilligcut investigation,
and the conscientious regard for tho in
terest of every class. We send it forth
with a sincere confidence in the wisdom
of its provisions and wo commend it to
them as an instrument eo equipped with
safeguards and encouragements that
under it they may achieve eafety and
prosperity for their industries and riso
to that position among tho states of the
Union to which they are entitled by
virtue of their intelligence and the mate
rial resources of their domain.
In part our duties aro ended, but be
tween now and the time set for the rati
fication I consider it tho bounden duty
of every member of this convention to
work enthusiastically for the adoption
of this constitution, and when we se pa
late to our several counties, may wo go
as true disciples and earnest advocates
of statehood, and loyally endeavor to
impress upon every careless individual
or community the importance of state
hood to themselves and their property.
Tlio rising fortunes of Arizona demand
the broader area of statehood as the
proper field for the expansion of our in
dustries and the increase of our popula
tion. Statehood 1 Will there bo found any
who will not feel a thrill of patriotic en
thusiasm at the very idea? This mar
riage, this compact with the great dom
naiit throbbing civilizing American na
tion will make us broader nnd better as
individuals and communities. Wo will
be closer and warmer in our affections
and more in touch with the energy and
aspirations of our nation, more zealous
to augment its power and glory and
more eager to defend when menaced,
the principles of American policy and
the honor of American citizenship.
And now, gentlemen, we surrender to
the people, this, their organic act, and
with it goes our benediction and heart
felt hopes. We hope, not only that it
will be ratified, but finally, when under
it wo shall have swung into the lino of
statehood, and proudly placed the em
blem of our sovereignty upon the nzure
field of our country's flag, wo will fondly
hope that our star will provo not the
least brilliant of nil the many bright
stars which tuako glorious our national

.V.nlixt Article 10 nnd IK as Adopted by
The undersigned, a member- of this
constitutional convention, hereby re
spectfully requests that his protest and
dissent against the adoption of the con
stitution framed and adopted by tho
vote of this convention; and ho es
pecially and particularly protests and
dissents against tho articles enumerated
in said constitution by the numbers 10
nnd 18, respectively, the former being
in relation to tho suffrage and the latter
being in relation to water and water
rights. The right of suffrago has, from
from the organization of the territory,
been vested in tho legislature. The lib
eral legislation of congress places it
there, and the undersigned cannot as
sent to an act which restricts tho right
conferred by congress. The departure
from tho principles set forth in tho ter
ritorial "bill ol rights" evidenced by
nrticle 18 of the constitution, in relation
to water and water rights, is deemed
by tlio undersigned unsound and dan
gerous to tho rights of tho peoplo and
will opernto to tlio advantage of corpora
tions and against the owners nnd occu
pants of lands. Respectfully sub
mitted, William Hekkino.
