It is a story of death sweeping out

how tho stricken Monroe, with hcrl

Gompers denied the accusation
from tho convention platform and

McDonald. Ddrlng tho cheers
greeted tho statement that tho head
of the federation was "gloriously

back and forth by tho two. In addi
tion to tho Seattle occasion, McDou
aid said Gompcrs was under tho In
fluence of liquor at the Atlanta con
vention. "Gompers had a 'snootful' In
Atlanta," ho declared.
Gompers denounced McDonald for
taking the positions that unions un
able to pay assessments should bo
! expelled from tho federation. "How
short tho memory of some men
oxclaimed. "In 1S91 the American
Federation had only $5,000 In the

would have "been forced out of the

TUCSON, Jan. 30. Thn Citizen
prints an authorized statement from
Senator Woridey In which ho defpn.ls
his recent declaration to Dunbar's
Weekly that conditions in tho man
agement of the University cf Arizona
Commenting upon tho statement,
tho Citizen says that the Investiga
tion made by Worsloy was given a
matter of hut a fow minutes time
and that It is mainly a reiteration ot
previous charge which ho said wero
based upn henrsny evidence, with ad
dition of n defense ot himself against
the charge that he Is a scaml! mon
ger. The Worsley statement follows-
With reference to what I jnld
about tho University qf Arizona, I
desire to state: First. It enmo about
In this wny: Prof. White and It's
daughter, Mrs. ltray, wero discharged
as teachers of tho deaf muto school
about a month bro. Mr. White cam?
to me. I visltiM the dwt mute
school twlre. I found jkteiin chil
dren in school and oljtjt, persons, in
cluding ,tho wash'.voinahi rawing
salary out of the appropri-U'Oi: fcr
the dent muto school. Since Mr.
White's and Ml'. 'Jtray'B uleolmrge,
the attendance has dropped down to
seven, and there have been only
seven In attendance since that time.
There are still eight persons drawing
salary. Seven children antf eight sal
aries. I find that one deaf muto
child, Ray llrlnkloy, a boy from
Sprlngervllle, Arizona, was expelled
and ejected frcm the sahool, and his
clothes thrown outdoors In the
street. A nlco way to treat a little
deaf muto child away from homo!
Mr. White seemed to bo Jealous of
the way the money appropriated for
this school was being used. He com
plained tc Dr. Wilde, as he tolls me.
and then ho and his daughter, Mrs.
Ilray, wero discharged.
I am accused ot peddling filnn.ler.
It is false. Mr. White llvos In Phoe
nix. When he was discharged Trom
tho university he wont to Phoenix.
Ho told several of the citizens of
Phoenix many things about the uni
versity, and when I went up to at
tend to some business in tho Su
premo court theso Phoenix citizens
came anj demanded of me, "What is
tho matter nt tho university?" I did
ir.t lntro?uco tho subject to John
Dunbar or anyono else.
As to appropriations and what Tho
Citizen bays about my, opposing ap
propriations, tho reverse Is true. Prof.
Forbes of tho university will bear
witness to this stutement: thnt I took
up tho fight in tho senate' for an n.t
dlt':nal sum of $30,000; (liter tho
ppproprlatlons commltteo had fin
ished. This additional $30,000 Sen
ator Hughes was opposed to, and
wo had to labor wiTIi him to get him
to voto for It. This Is not hearsay.
This is tho record.
One Teacher to Four Students
I said tho University was In a de
plorable condition. I repeat It. Why?
Recauso on Investigation I find a
marked decrease in the attendance. I
find Mrs. Haynes, a resident of our
own city, who Is entitled to th0 com
panionship of her children, sending
her children away tn schools In ether
states. Thero aro many children In
this stato away attending schools In
other states. Jf wo can't keep tho
children of Tucson, how nro wo goltig
to hopo to draw children from other
states to our university?
What do wo find? About ISO stu
dents In school and -17 teachers and
professors, making about ono pro
fessor, teacher or Instructor to every
Largest Per Capita Cost
Wo appropriated for this university
us I recollect It, $3S4,O0O. Add to this
$50,000 a year that wo get frcm tho
government, and cnlculato on tho
number of students In school, mil
you will find that the per capita co3t
of running this Institution Is several
hundreds dollars per capita moro than
any other institution In tho Toimtr,-.
The thing that I do not like Is that -when
the legislature was in session.
