COUNTY SEAT REMOVAL
LAW IS UNJUST.
The hope of the town ofSafford
to have the' county seat ot Graham
county -moved there from SolOmou
vlHo has again gone glimmering. The
petition asking for a county, scat re
moval election has Veen declared in
sufficient by Superior Judge Shute,
thus'upholdlng the action of the board
of supervisors In str.king from the
petition all names not those ot le
gal voters. This 'decision eliminated.'
all names of corporations and when
they were stricken off tho required
property representation did not re
main. The attorney representing Sat
ford haft taken an appeal to the state
supreme court, but this appeal cannot
be heard before tho time for holding
tho election. The people of Safford
have been battling for the county scat
for thirty years, so we may expect to
Fee them up and at It again two
years hence. In tho meantime, tho
public county building at Solomon
vllle built of adobe, are fast melting
; One of tho duties of the coming
Eessfon of the legislature is to pass a
county scat removal law, so that It may
bo possible for the people ot any
county in the state to choose a neV
location lor the seat of county gov
ernment when they may desire to
do so. Under the present law there
are many counties in this state wbcro
the people are powerless in this mat
ter because of the peculiar and un
'Just law on the statute.
The lawproviding for the removal
of county seats requires that when a
petition is presented to the board of
supervisors, asking for a county seat
removal election and containing one
lourth of the legal voters of a county
and representing one-third of the tax
able wealth ok the county, the board
shall' order the" election. On two TV
caslons the courts have held that no
signature is allowable on'such-a peti
tion other than those or qualified
voters and holding that no one not a
qualified voter may sign such a peti
tion, even for .the purpose of' adding
his propert to the property repre
sentation on a petition and denies the
greater part of the property In sever
al counties of the state the right to
he represened .bcause It bJ-not owned
by a 'Quallfled voter.
Several year ago a county seat
removal petition failed In thls'county
on the same grounds as the one in
Graham county last week. In Cochise
county more than two-thlrdg of the
property value is held by corporations
mining companies, railroad compan
ies, banks, cattle companies and the
like. Under the present law it would
not be possible to'brir.g about an elec

Tho principal business men in Bis
bee report this week that the -volume
of trade for September 1912 was more
than twenty-five per .cent in cxcrs3
of September last year. Real csSato
men say that there are no vacant
houses left in the city, the. hotels and
lodging houses are full, restaurants
crowded and every enterprise feeling
tho effect of a growing population and
of the growth of our industries.
A GRAND CHARACTER.
At least nine-tenths we had better
say ninety-nine hundredths of the
voting population of these United
States, republicans the same as dem
ocrats, desire two things in politics,
one equally with tbo other. They want
admitted abuse and injustices cor
rected and the now partially closed
doors of opportunity thrown open on
equal terms, to all the people. And
they desire that these abKlutoly es
sential reforms be In justlco to any
thing that Is legitimate and honest to
all our vast fields of enterprise and
labor. They want the tumor of special
privilege that has fastened upon the
body politic removed, and they want
It so done as not to diminish the gen
eral health and vigor of tho patlent
To a public mind deeply Imbued
with this desire, tho candidacy of
Woodrow Wilson naturally and logic
ally appeals. He has shown auch san
ity, such clarity of thinking, such a
trained intelligence, such fairness and
moderation, such a sound understand
ing of the fundamental problem, such
an Instinctive sympathy w(th the pop
ular desire for reform, nnd with it all
such a degree of courage and straight
forward frankness in discussing tho
Issues, that the country Is turning to
him as the one man-whom It long
has sought and mourned because It
found him out.

torist, who Ignores the right of so

of others. Judge Gregory has aptly
termed the Joy-riding motdrists an
archists. And the magnitude ot a

by reason ot education, to distinguish
between right and wrong. The unlet-)

GOVERNOR HUNT'S ATTITUDE
Tho question of capital punlbmont
is one that has agitated the jmblic
mind for centuries and It Is Mill a
sravH ouestion. and one difficult to
, aeeil with. The action of Governor
1 Hunt in commuting the death W
tence of the men who were to be

demncd and approved; thousands of
the- best people In the world are on
both sides of this question, aud wblta
some localities will be exceedingly
worked up over this action, yet It
Is only just to give the govorftor
credit for being consistent. The
people of Arizona realized fully fee-

ment showing resources of $5,321,086.
04. JN NOVEMBER, 1910, a report to
the Comptroller of the Currency,
showed resources of $7,629,841.86.
IN THREE YEARS THE INCREASE
AMOUNTED TO THE ENORMOUS
SUM OF $2,308,755.82 and the number
of depositors had Increased from 4,000
LOCALLY, THERE WERE TWO
TRUST COMPANIES AND SEVEN
I BANKS competing for the business
J and tho banking Institutions of Albanv
'and Cohoes have solicited patronage
J In Troy for a number of years.
THE INCREASE In resources was
due to the Increase In number ot de
positors. THE INCREASE In number of de-,
posltors was DUE TO ADVERTISING.
CAN YOU conceive any other means
of obtaining such great results?
WAS ANYTHING of the kind ever
accomplished before the dawn of Ad
vertising? THE ONLY method ot "getting busi
ness" practiced, to any great exthnt
by our great-grandfathers, was "cut
ting the price." :
A BANK could not "cut prices'. but,
to accomplish the same object, would
have to Increase the rate ot Interest
paid depositors. I
WE ARE perfectly willing that ouV
grocer, our butcher, or other of -our
tradesmen, should "sacrifice prices"
as, in case the "sacrifice" is parried
to the point where the dealer must
retire from business, there will be
others to take his place. j
FOR VERY obvious reasons, we
would not like to have our bank clos

It must not pay more than the prevail
ing rate of interest or we would lose
confidence. When we lose confidence
the bank loses our patronage. '
WE REALIZE that Advertising cobU
money. But we also realize that it
produces more than it costs. If this
were not so, there would be no Adver
tisers. IN THE CASE REFERRED TO.
very careful record was kept as- to
the particular form of Advertising
which influenced the greatest number
