A FEW THINGS
Backwoods Statesman,
Obeying Orders From the
Governor, Proposes to
Have Some Fun With the
Newspapers
Through the failure of the gov
ernor to take anv action on tlu
Phoenix sewer bond bill, this measure
became a law yesterday, five days
having expired since it was sent to
him. This law was passed under an
emergency section, regarded by many
as- on a parity with the Worsley bill.
The senate spent the greater part
of yesterday in considering the mil
itia code bill. Some sections were
stricken out, including that carrying
the necessary appropriation, and it
was finally committed to the. appro
priations committee. A motion in
definitely to postpone the bill came
near passing.
In the house there was also much
work in committee of the whole. The
bill providing that all publ.ic printing
shall bear the union label was recom
mended for indefinite postponement.
The majority of the house regarded
this measure, as class legislation and
unconstitutional.
The most interesting feature of the
house day was when it "bowed up"
on the senate on the recall measure.
This was sent from the house and
the senate made many minor amend
ments and sent the bill back. The
house committee of the whole re
fuses to concur and the outcome will
probably be a conference committee
next Monday., j
The governor nominated the board
of pharmacy and horticultural board
and the senate confirmed board of
education appointments.
Tho house labor committee held a
long session yesterday afternoon on
house bill OC, hours of labor for wo
men and devised a substitute pat
terned after the Utah law, permit
ting the employment of women for
nine hours. House bills CI and 50
were also recommended for passage.
Several new bills were introduced,
one in the house by Leon Jacobs,
raising the basis of mine taxation
from 25 per cent to 50 per cent of
the bullion output.
In the senate C. D. "Wood sprung
that threatened newspaper bill which
makes every newspaper bare its heart
to the cold, unfeeling world every
time it goes to press.
Another anti lobbying bill was
started in the senate, which now has
various and s'undry of them before
it and a pure food law was sprung.
Also a resolution calls for the in
vestigation of all state offices and
institutions and another one In the
senate' gives Judge Sloan a second
rap.
Other legislation was moved along
a little but the consideration of long
hills made nrocress slow.
THE SENATE.
In the senate yesterday new bill.?
leaked in at various times until the
number totaled a half dozen with one
joint resolution as follows:
Senate bill 109 by Chase to fill
vacancies in boards of supervisors.
Senate bill 110 by Willis for the
protection of game birds. This bill
set the open season for deer and tur
key fifteen days later.
Senate bill ill by C. B. Wood is
a corker. It provides that news
papers shall do a lot of things that
cannot well be recited until the bill
is printed and available for observa
tion, but among them the officers
and owners of newspapers must be
published continuously and in a gen
eral way it is provided that fhc in
debtedness shall be made known.
Senate bill 112 by Wessel is a pure
food law.
Senate bill 113 by Brown amends
the laws respecting revenues and as
sessments of taxes.
Senate bill 114 by Wessel concerns
fees for filing legal papers.
Senate bill 115 by Homer Wood
is another bill to prohibit lobbying.
' Senate joint resolution 5 provides
for investigation of all public insti
tutions and all state offices.
Under reading and reference of
bills house bill CO concerning va
cancies .sent to the judiciary com
mittee. Senate bill 10S introduced by Mr.
Worsley the day before, was with
drawn temporarily. It pertains to
insurance.
' The private ' corporations committee
reported two bills;
Senate bill 43 was recommended for
passage by a majority report and a
minority report re.commended that it
do not pass. Briefs were submitted
by the attorney general and corpora
tion commission. The bill pertained
to foreign corporations.

Teachers, Principals and
School Authorities Meet,
at Osborn; Eighth Grade
Graduation; Distinguished
Guests Present
Teachers and principals and a largo
number of parents with here and
there a superintendent attended the
sessions of the teachers' association
at Osborn school yesterday.
The meeting was presided over
by J. D. Loper, superintendent of the
Phoenix city schools ,ind the pro
gram was both interesting and in
structive.
Two main topics were up for (lis
cussion: eighth grade graduation and
the free text book problem. In the
middle of the day luncheon was
served by some of, the Osborn women
and the break in the program formed
a delightful social diversion nnd an
opportunity for introductions and in
formal exchange of ideas.
The teachers' organization was
formed earlier in the season and has
for its basic idea the co-operation
which is so valuable in school work,
the frequent meeting, exchange of
plans and discussing matters of im
port to the proper conduct of the
schools, and the harmonious working
together or parent and teacher. The
sessions thus far held have been
very successful. Next month the
meeting will occur at the Phoenix
high school.
Yesterday's session was especially
notable because of the number of dis
tinguished guests in attendance.
Members of the educational commit
tees In both houses of the legislature
were on hand throughout the day:
the governor was there to say
"how'dy," Attorney General BullaYd
made a speech: Senator C. B. Wood,
the man who invented Osborn district,-
was there of course, and County
Superintendent of Schools J. A. Rig
gins was on the program.
Superintendent Riggins discussed
the eighth grade graduation question
and argued for a simpler form of
ceremonial in this regard. He thought
that the sciiool system should be a
unit and the stress of commencement
be placed at the end of the high
school course.
In some instances it has .becomo
the custom to hold the most elaborate
ceremonies when the pupil is dis
missed from the eighth grade and is
ready for entrance into the high
school. These functions are fre
quently conducted at considerable ex
pense, and are really without mean
ing, in-xsmuch as the "graduate" from
the' eighth grade is usually twelve
or thirteen years old and really just
ready for tho serious work of acquir
ing an education. A committee of
seven was appointed by the chair,
of which Superintendent Riggins is
chairman to work out a uniform
commencement plan both for eighth
grades and high schools. This com
mittee will report at the next meet
ing. . George Purdy Billiard talked of
free text books and offered the sug
gestion that instead of a state wide
law oach county be permitted to de
cide for itself whether or not the
free book system is preferred to the
present plan of purchase by each
pupil. A large percentage of the
teachers, some place the figure as
high as seventy per cent, are said to
favor the retention of the present
system, their reasons being, for tho
most part based on sanitary grounds.

CHIHUAHUA, April 13. General
Pasqual Orozco said today that an ad
vance by the federal force, which for
three weeks has been mobilizing at
Mapiml, would not surprise him if it
occurs within the next three or four
days. As in the previous campaign,
which ended disastrously for the gov
eminent troops, the rebels will make
their first stand at Escalon, if pres
ent plans are not changed. General
Emiilo Canipu will .be at the head of
his old column.
EI. PASO, April 13. General Oroz
co's statement that a battle at Ks
calon in the next few days will not
surprise him agrees with recent state
ments by agents of the Madero gov
ernment here. According to them,
3200 federal regulars and volunteers
are mobilizing at Mapimi, and other
troops enroute would bring the total
force up to tiOOO by tomorrow. They
have been predicting that the fed
erals, led by General Huerta. would
advance tomorrow or very soon there
after. C. A. Ilaberlein. the American
engineer who- was held a prisoner by
tho rebels in Jiminez five days sus
pected of being a spy and who was
acquitted of the charge, has arrived
here indignant, but none the worse for
his experience.
WASHINGTON, April 13 The Mex
ican rebels are rapidly rousing the ire
of this government. While no steps
at retaliation have been discussed, it
Is- almost certain the revolutionists
will never obtain recognition or sym
pathv. Interference of the rebels
with official mall and the summary
execution of Thomas Fountain, an
American gunner in the federal ranks.
over the protest of our consuls, have
caused a feeling of aggravation.
Though the United States Is prac
tically powerless to compel more cour
tesy at the hands of the rebels, it is
thought a heavy awakening will soon
come to some of the rebel leaders. It
is stated here if the rebels, made des
perate by failure to secure arms and
ammunition from the United States
think they can force intervention by
overt acts, they arc doomed to dis
appointment. The president has
warned all Americans to keep out of
the war zone, and if they fail to heed
tho warning the government officials
declared, they have .10 one to blame
but themselves. Military leaders in
Mexico, federal or rebel, who deliber
ately bring about the execution of
prisoners of war, are considered guilty
of murder under tho international law.
If the rebel leader who ordered such
execution comes within tho jurisdic
tion of the United States he will be
arrested and turned over to the Mexi
can federal government for trial on a
charge of murder.
TUCSON. April 13. According to a

" PHILADELPHIA. April 13. Tho
primary election in Pennsylvania re
sulted In a landslide for Roosevelt. As
the returns continue to come In. vic
tory for the Roosevelt adherents be
comes more complete.
PHILADELPHIA, Sunday, April 14.
(Bulletin) Early returns this morn
ing indicate that in the Eighteenth
congressional district, M. E. Olmstead
(Taft) and Harry Hartzeler (Roose
velt) arc elected. Late returns show,
Roosevelt delegates have won In the
Fourth Congressional district In this
city. This divides the delegation from
Philadelphia six each for Taft and
Roosevelt.
The Roosevelt campaign managers
are claiming sixty-two delegates on
returns so far. With the exception
of one or two districts in the state,
Woodrow Wilson will have a solid
delegation from Pennsylvania to tho
democratic national convention. '
Of the sixty-four delegates elected
In thirty-two districts fully fifty are
pledged to vote for Roosevelt. Added
to this is the probability that the
state republican convention, which
will choose twelve delegates-at-large
to the national covention, will be
controlled by tl i antl-Taft element,
insuring at least 62 delegates for
Roosevelt from this state. The re
publican organization leaders are
stunned by the overwhelming defeat
of- the Taft candidates and have
notliing to say regarding the result.
United States Senator Penrose, recog
nized as the leader of the republican
organization and the leading Taft
boomer in this state, left the city
early this afternoon and boarded his
yacht at Atlantic City where he i3
safe from interviewers.
PHILADELPHIA. April 14. The
result by districts follows: For Roose-"
velt; five, six, seven, ten, eleven.'thlr-'
teen, fifteen, seventeen, twenty-three,
twenty-seven.
For Taft. one. two, three, four,-nine,
twenty.
The twenty-3econd and twenty
ninth are for Roosevelt. The fifth,
gave Taft one delegate and RoosevelC
one.
PHILADELPHIA, April 13. At
midnight reports to the Associated
Press indicate that Roosevelt, has
carried at least half the congression
al districts in Pennsylvania, In ad
dition there is strong likelihood that
the Roosevelt men "will control the
state convention which names twelve
delegates-at-large. If this is the
case. Roosevelt will have nearly two
thirds of the 76 delegates from this
state. Woodrow Wilson apparently
had" little opposition in the balloting,
and he will have a solid delegation
from this state to the democratic na
tional convention.
PHILADELPHIA. April 13. (Bulle

John McGahrin will be nominated tor
