Phoenix. Ariz., Feb. 10. The Equal
suffrage association of Arizona is
bending all efforts to winning friends
for a bill that will be Introduced at
this session of the legislature, which
aims at equal suffrage. The bill is
doomed, say the quidnuncs. The ma
jority of legislators are reserved in
their expressions on esithmersa u
their expressions on this measure, pre
ferring, when waited on by the fair
lobbyists, to smile assent and look
convinced, but adopt the prerogative
of great men and change their minds
when the proper time comes. The
most poultry at heart will abscond
from the legislative chamber with the
convictions that the fair advocates
have wrought when the bill
is presented for a vote. In fact, the
difficulty will be in securing a quorum
for the members of the assembly are
not anxious to go on record in oppo
sition to the equal suffrage bill, yet
they are far more anxious not to go
on record as favoring it. The bill
may be maneuvered through the house
but if so it will get its quietus, as
usual, in the council unless the equal
suffrage advocates work out some un
precedented change in the program.
Nobody knows who will introduce the
bill and nobody aspires to the honor.
Assemblyman Webb of Graham coun
ty, is frequently referred to as the
equal suffrage leader, but he says
modestly that he is making -no ar
rangements calculated to enfranchise
The president of the Equal Suffrage
association is Mrs. H. F. Robinson.
Other prominent women are included
in the membership and some of them
are enlisting the efforts of their hus
bands in the unpromising effort. In an
Interview Mrs. Robinson expresses
her confidence- in the success of the
measure this year:
"A great many men -who may not
be in favor of equal suffrage are will
ing to aid us in our work because a
territorial legislature has the power to
grant women enfranchisement while
if Arizona becomes a state the ques
tion must be made one of referendum.
If this legislature should grant the en
franchisement of women the women
of the territory will be -represented in
the constitutional convention and the
women themselves will have an oppor
tunity, of voting to determine whether
equal suffrage shall prevail under
state form of government Otherwise
the question will be determined by
the male population."
Is your movement stronger this ses
seslon than when a similar bill was
defeated two years ago?"
"Decidedly stronger. And two years
ago we were much stronger than at
the former session. Some of our
pood friends of the last legislature
have been returned to their seats, in
dicating that their constituents ap
proved their course, and among the
new members are men who will vote
with us. We have nothing to offer
in exchange for a vote. We go to
the law;makers purely on the merits
of the question, however, we are per
fecting our county organizations, we
are receiving better treatment from
the press, and we have a constant'y
increasing membership in our aso-

The vice-president of the associa
tion is Mrs. Nellie Sullivan. Mrs.
.Eugene Brady O'Neil; Mrs. Doan,

'Mrs. Tritle, wife of former Governor
iTritle; Mrs. Theodore Otis of Pres
cott and Mrs. Bird, wife of Allen T.
' Bird, editor of the Nogales Oasis are
1 prominent and active members.
'Among the lobbyists Is Dr. Francis
Wood, of Kansas, who received her
training in the mother-state of equal
suffrage. The lobbists are feeling
their strength and when the bill is
presented in both houses they promise
to spring surprises, in the development
of unexpected support.
i The Cowan bill which will be re
ported by the committee which has
it in charge on Monday has given rise
to wide-spread legal descussion." The
bill is framed for the purpose of pro-
jviding a heavy source of revenue for
the territory by planting in the treas-
Jury the liberal fees derived for the
' incorporation of foreign and non-resi
dent corporations. The Harrison act
passed in Congress about twenty
years ago says that the territorial leg
islature shall not put into operation
special laws which will create. In
crease or decrease, the fees of a ter
ritorial office holder during his term
of office. Secretary Stoddard raises
the point that his office does not ex
pire for two years and ho threatens
to carry his protests to the United
States supreme court in case the leg
islature attempts to cut off his enor
mous income. He claims to be a
territorial ofiicer by virtue of a con
gressional act passed subsequently to
the Harrison Act which empowers the
legislature to prescribe duties and
emoluments upon the territorial sec
retary. Col. J. F. Wilson strenuously denies
that he reached any friendly under
standing with the secretary in regard
to this matter but declares that if it
is legally possible he should be glad
to see these big revenues saved to
the territory. As an excuse for a
lengthy written opinion, signed by the
Colonel, which finds substantially that
the legislature Is planning to run
counter to the Harrison Act, Col. Wil-
son says that in response to numerous
I requests made by democratic friends
I he has prepared, an opinion which
1 simply embodies his conviction. It has
!been reported by his enemies that
Colonel Wilson is seeking In this and
in other ways to repudiate certain
; planks of the democratic platform
which he himself framed.
"I want it understood,' said Mr.
Wilson, to a cc respondent, "that I
. have in no way sought to influence
I legislation. In fact. I have distinct
ly told my friends that I do not care
to take part in law making in the ter
ritorial legislature, and I am In no
manner a lobbyist nor an adviser."
I "Did you cot assist in framing the
: democratic platform which declares
j for a discontinuance of the system of
J incorporating foreign corporations,
I and for a saving to the territory of
the revenues derived from incorporating?"
j "I was consulted, of course, as to
the platform but only investigated
and took part in framing the most
vital planks. The plank that you
jhave reference to was regarded as a
minor measure and did not arouse
much discussion. I have since inves
tigated the 'aw on the subject and I
''do not see how we can get around the
law. Until your paper brought out
I the point, I was not aware of the fact
'that the secretary has enjoyed fees
I which have been created for him by a
legislature during his term of office.
If that be true, it may be borne in
mind that the Harrison Act Is as
strongly opposed to increasing fees,
or to creating fees, as it Is to de
creasing fees. This would make a
very pretty question for the courts to
rule on and a lawyer would find some
interesting points in such a legal pro
ceeding." Tcej Review has already minted
out that the last legislature passed a
law prior to the present secretary's
induction into office increasing the
emoluments of the secretary and this
law-did nopgo fnto effecfuntll three
months after the secretary's term of
office began. A reliable investiga
tion by the highest authorities in the
territory has revealed the fact that
from this legislature alone the secre
tary enjoyed emoluments amounting
to something more than J29.000.
