PHOENIX. Ariz. Feb. IS. Beth
branches of the legislature were pre
cipitated today into a discussion. In
a mild form, of Governor Hunt'H pri
son policy when a petition from the
c tlzcns of Florence, accompanied by
a resolution or the Florence city coun
cil, was read in each house condemn
ing In the strongest terms the policy
of the administration for the handling
of the prison convicts.
It was quite apparent to all, after
the reading had ceased, that some
portion of tne population o Florence
desired a change from the existing
honor system at the stato penitenti
ary' and they remonstrated to the leg
islature In some thousand words and
petitioned that an Investigation -ay
the state solons ibe made at once. Tbe
truth of the statements In the peti
tion of citizens was attested by the
mayor and city alderman.
After reciting that the sUaation
complained of has existed for the
past ten months tho petition states
that conditions lrive been endured ni
sllonce "In the hope that our eliiet
executive might after a I'tUe exper
ience realize that his present ultra
reform Ideas are both Impracticable
and dangerous and adopt a prison re
form policy based on common sense
and sanity, but in this hope e hate
been disappointed and can no longer
in justice to onrseltes and families
endure without UgorouS protest this
probably well meant but Id'otic pri
son reform policy which has become
a menace to the safety as well as the
social, moral, and financial wellfare
I t this community."
Reference is made to an incident
cf some months ago when t was bald
Eytinge, a murderer, accompanied
Kate Bernard, the reformer from the
ynson to the town after which' the
petition deals with the advisability
oi H.-nnitt'ng convicts to associate
with youths of the town, particularly
jouns women and concludes:
'This merely to gratify the gov
ernor's lust for notoriety as tho ori
ginator of starting the stunts of re
form." in the house after several motions
the petition was finally referred to a
committee unfriendly to the golern
or's prison policy for consideration,
while In the senate a committee fav
orably Inclined to the administration
was git en the petition.
Both friends and enemies of the
prison reform scheme agree -that tbe
petition has precipitated a fight on
the Question with the possible re
sult of a special Investigating com
mittee visiting the prison and Flor.
it Is known that the admln'stration
would welcome an investigation and
look on the petition as an effort of
disgruntled politicians to embarrass
the goternor. Warden Sims tonight
phoned a denial of the charges made
In the petition.
