PHOENIX, Ariz., April I. Gov
ernor Hunt tins afternoon trans
mitted to the legislature a veto of
the six mile law which had been so
vigorously pushed through both
houses during the closing hours of
Saturday's session. The veto treats
only on that part of the bill which
made it an emergency measure, the
executive approval hcimr withheld
for the reason: "That in section five
(the emergency clause) thereof, it
contains, in violation of what I in
terpret to be the letter ami contrary
to what I conceive to be the spirit
of Arizona's constitution, a clause
exempting it from the provision of
the referendum, thus denying the
people that right which the .consti
tution expressly reserves to them."
The executive says he is in per
sonal sympathy with the proposed
legislation and believes in its fair
ness, and, justice, but cannot bring
himself to the belief that its im
mediate operation is necessary to
preserve the public peace, health or
safety. He expresses the hope that
legal and legitimate means may lit
found to relieve the loss sustained
by those for whose relief the meas
ure was intended without bringing
upon Arizona the unanswerable re
proach that her boasted referendum
is a power in name only an instru
incut to be set aside at the will and
behest of any interest or of the leg
islaturc and the governor. His veto
he docs not use as an executive
perogativc but as an executive .duty.
Neither house took up the veto
today, it being considered better to
take time to consider the course of
action. In the senate there appears
a determined movement to overrule
the veto but several house members
who voted for the bill hesitate to
agree to vote against sustaining the
veto. Tonight the lienor bill is
problem, the disposition of which is
high in the air.
Billiard, the attorney general, has
been asked for his advice on the
emergency clause, their use and
abuse, but he enters the situation
