of Rlsbee as mayor Tor two years.
Ills term ending on the first day of
last June, during the tiuio he was al
the head of the city gov eminent first
became interested in the subject of
n commission form or government loi
municipalities and since then he has
lost no opiortunity to gain additional
information concerning the beneficial
'workings of this modem and popular
form of city government Knowing
that Mr. Newman v. as much Interest

matter, which has now been taken up
by the "Warren District Commercial

Gives His Views
Mr. Newman consented to give his
views, but as a preface declared that
personally he had no further Interest
in the commission form of govern
ment further than to aist other citi
zens of nisbee in benefitting con-li
tions here If it was possible to do
so. He said he gave much hard worl.
to the city while he was mayor, and
had no desire to 1c personally con
nected with and system of city gov
ernment, either new or old.
Mr. Newman said: "I take It that
the citizens of Wsbec desire the kind
of government that will bring the
best and most economical results and
be best adapted to local conditions.
That should be the desire of even
one desiring the welfare of Hlsbee

on Costello Lot in Bis-

"There are two kinds of lawyers,"
said R. S. Fisher, progressive party
candidate for congress, speaking to
a largo crowd on the Costello lot
Inst night. "One kind spends his
time complimenting the lawyers op

vra found bo satlsfnc-! urt- The other k.nd is every inrn

that is the system there now, and

"From my experience In the city
government, I know that Bisbee can
not afford to adopt the same system

kind of a lawyer and if you send me

Candidate Fisher also makes a
fighting speech. His voice is some

More Business Disposed of
in Superior Court Than
Any Time Since Organ
ization in 1882
MANY CASES CLEARED
(By Oscar K. Goll)
TOMBSTONE, Oct. 12. The
cords of the superior court of Cochise
county reveal the act that since the
Leginnlng of Marcb, this year, more
litigation, Including criminal cas-M,
has been disposed of In that tribunal,
under the present administration of
Judge Fred Sutter, than during any
period since the organization of the
county in 1882. This is indeed a most
remarkable record, when the fact is
taken Into consideration that -Usidis
disposing of the aforementioned b'isi
ness, the entire work of the old pro
bate couit system, abolished since
Arizona attained statehood. Is also
saddled upon the superior judges
shoulders, and it can be said th:.t
the probate business of Cochise cour
ty Is much more volumnious than anv
other political subdivision of Arizona
Court Is Very Buiy
Although litigation of various kinds
and nature are being filed dally with
the clerk of the superior court, the
samq are placed upon the docket and
disposed of as rapidly as possible by
the presiding Judge, who besides clear
Ing the court calendar of now cases,
is dally healing and deciding manv
cases left over In tho old district
court, which remained untried and
upon the calendar when Judge S'tt
ter went into office.
Court calendar No. 2, recently Is
sued, shows that there are In the
neighborhood of two hundred civil
cases mow ,penIIng upon the civil
docket, besides probate matters, and
exclusive of tax cases, which ore
Since the organization of tho su
perior court system In Cochise cotin

dred and fifty matters, both civil and
criminal, have been disposed of. whlla
some fifty odd cases are still unde

or more, because the revenue here
Is not sufficient to meet the expense.
Usually the commission form of gov
ernment means the employment of
three, five or more men with salaries
ranging from U,miT,a , to J2J100 per
annum, and each commissioner be
comes the head of one of the several
departments of government, and has
solo charge of that This would not
be suitable In Bisbee because hero
no qualified man would be willing to
undertake the management ot any de
partment of the city for $1,200 or
even $1,500 per year Surely we
could not undertake to pay three or
five men $2,500 each.
' 'To avoid this expense, my Idea
would be to elect three commission
ers at large, on an absolutely non
partisan basis, to be at all times sub
ject to the recall, from among our
citizens who are recognized because
of their ability In handling affairs of
such magnitude as will be encount
ered by them In caring for our rity
business. The compensation for the
commissioners should be a specified
amount for each monthly or semi
monthly meeting, the maximum to

"The duties of such a commission
should be to have general supervis

commission would also act as a rlty

ordinances, one of them being chosen
as mayor. 1 favor the appointment

"How about Perkins?"' an auditor
Fisher said that ho would tane tho
Perkins' accusation up later but tho
auditor insisted on being answered
and said "l will leave It to the
Asks Foolish Question.
"Answer th" question," one man In
the crowd returned. Tho speaker
was visibly embarascd by the In
terruption but laughingly passed off
the Incident by saying, "let me finish
and thm you may have a chance to
talk. The interested spectator" how
ever would not subside and shouted,
"how about the steel trust, come

Bosses Dictate Nomination.
Fisher charged that the bosses dic
tated th" nomination of Wi'.son atJ
Baltimore, charged him with sending
telegrams to Murphy, Sullivan and
Taggart congratulating them on their
support of him, charged that Wilson
is being supported by N.xon. of thc

directors of all big corporations ar

son's speeches are blue-peuciied In an
office on Wall street and In regard
to Perkins said that "Georgo W. Per
kins is the ono big man in the coun
try who placed friendship for Roose
velt before the almighty dollar"
Fisher also advocated the recall
of Judges. "Before I was a lawyer,"
he said. "I thought of Judges as hav
1ns haloes around their heads but
now I know that they arc made of
the same kind of earth as we are. in
fact they are a whole lot mud-JIer
than the average of us is."
Would Use Recall.
In this connection Fisher Indi
cated that ho would apply the recall
to the Judges of the state supreme
court because of their election de
cision. "What did Roosevelt say about

A well known Lowell democrat has
hit upon a novel Idea to secure a
complete registration of voters. Like
all movements worth while. It neces
sitates the co-operation of the worn
en or the district. The man wno
makes the suggesUon points out that
the women are particularly interestel
In getting out a large vote, as thc
equal suffrage amendment to tho
state constitution Is to be voted on
at thc coming election.
The Idea Is this: for every wife or
mother or sister of a voter to tie a
string around his finger Monday morn
ing before he leaves home, so that
he will be reminded to register when
he gets down town.
Will Never Remove String
The man does not live who will
ruthlessly tear from his finger a string
that has -been tied around It by hU
wife to prevent him from forgetting
something, and he will not remove It
until he has affixed bis name three
times the registration affidavit.
If every woman in the district will
cooperate In carrying out tho Low
ell politician's idea, every man in thc
varren district who his not yet reg
istered will register Monday morning,
and Cochise county will ro'l up the
biggest vote In Its history on election
day. After the women get the bal
lot. It won't make so much difference
whether the men register and vote
or not, for the women will then to
able to do the voting for the farallv.
Idea May Be Carried Further
The Idea of the Lowelllte may be
carried further, and the string tied
on His finger on election day may bo
such as to get out a big vote. It Is
a waste of time, however, to suggest
extensions of the Idea to the women,
as they will probably apply feminine
Ingenuity to the Idea, and a "votes-for-women"
tag to tho string.
Monday is the last day of registra
tion, and the man who does not reg

Talk about Arizona as a fruit coun
