(Xiom Sunday's Daily.)
"Just at first," said one of our
popular young society menr "I was
greatly opposed to suffrage, but
when a delightful western girl, with
an irrestible smile, pinned a "Votes
for Women" badge into the lapel of
by coat, I became the proudest
backslider the world has ever
known. But if some stern-faced
Amazon had flung a hatchet at my
anti-suffragist head, I would have
gone through endless torture rather
than confess such a woman was ft
to help form government." But in
the fight for the ballot there was
no violence and little if any friction.
The settlement of this vexed ques
tion never in any other part of the
world slid down such smooth and
well-oiled tracks. Our sisters, over'
seas, should study the ways of the
Western girl, if they hope to obtain
success. By eliminating friction and
prejudice from their appeal they
captured the .inherent . galfantry in
the. hearts., of their brothers, hus
bands and fathers. Every westtrn
man knew beforehand that the wo
men of thei. family would not be
less feminine, because of being
granted the. ballot.
Were, -the best runners in Iife-'s
race discouraged at this" first defeat
of a woman for Mayor? Not at
all, since there was only one reason
for such result which can.. in time,
Women, are by nature, so much
better equipped than men with wea
pons of defense that perhaps it
was only fair they should be en
dowed -with a slight handicap in
order that justice might reign. It
should be remembered that the oc
casion when western women ob
tained the right to vote was sny
onymous with the time they adopted
very narrow tailored skirts and our
argument is endorsed by the fact
that the "countries where women
have the advantage in dress, China.
Persia, Turkey, etc., things were
again equalized by withholding po
litical privileges from them.
Is. not this the just law of com
pensation in its most admirable
working? ., . '

PAYS TRIBUTE TO
MEMORY OF REV. McKAY,
For some time rumors have reach
ed -heYe of the mental disturbance
and consequent , death of Rev, Irving
F. McKay,' and. a letter from his
widow confirm all this.
He was 'two years pastor of the
M. E. Church, South, in West
Prescott. Then he was sent to
Clifton, Ariz., and last year asked
for a transfer to Deer Lodge, Mon
tana. He was succeeding commen-
dabfy with, his work there, when
suddenly and without any warning
whatever he became violently in
sane one midnight. Fortunately
there were others in the house who
helped attend him until the morn
ing, when he was taken to a hospi
tal. The next day he needed to be
taken to the asylum, but by a kind
ly Providence- he was spared, from
lingering on in this condition and
was translated before he was con
scious of any trouble. Death came
December 19th and he was buried at
the scene of his labors two days
later. His widow has returned to
Memphis, Tenn., where she will re
main with her mother.
Rev. McKay lived among us a
stalwart Christian. Faithful in his
studies as in his pastoral work, he
fed his flock with "the finest of the
wheat." Like so many Bible stud
ents now, he believed in'th'c near
and personal coming of Our Lord
and this was a grand inspiration to
Strong in friendship tender in
sympathy, unselfish to the last de
gree, he gave himself for his peo
ple. To this exhausting energy of
a nervous, .high strung temperament,
made more susceptible by our high
altitude, is probably due the utter
collapse of brain power, though
there was not the slightest indi
cation of any weakening while here.
He had ever at heart the good of
the community in which he lived and
with the' courage 'of the true Scots
man he was ready to give up the
flimsy popularity of quiescence for
the furthering of any righteous
cotise, no matter the conflict.
Of a wealthy family he left a
lucrative position for a small sal
ary and the trying work of a preach
er in the West. Like a brave sold
ier he liked to fight in the fore
front, hence his transfer. He left
many warm friends wherever he
lived, and more surely, perhaps than
any of ug, he will receive the Mas
ter's applaudit, "Well done, good
andj faithful servant, enter thou in
to the joys of thy Lord."

ANSWER READY IN
THE NOTED AUTO SUIT.
PHOENIX, Jan. ' 11. Attorney
General Bullard is preparing the "an-:
swer of J. C. Callaghan, -State Au
ditor, in the mandamus- -proceeding
new .pending jn the Superior Court,
and expressed himself this morning
as confident he would be able to
demur the matter out of court.
One of the points of his demur
rer is that no mandamus can be
sustained when the applicant has
an adequate remedy at law, and it
will be recalled that the last legis
lature passed a law providing for
suits against the state where boards
have failed to approve just claims
in the amount deemed by contrac
tors to be the amount due. He also
claims that Callaghan has the right
to use his discretion as the appro
val or disapproval of a claim.
The day of the hearing has not
been set but there arc many who
claim that the Arizona Motor Com
pany will be out their automobile
unless Governor Hunt relents and
permits the new car to be sent to
the state prison.

PHOENIX, Jan. 11. In the new
revenue" ' law -submitted by the State
Tax Commission ' to Governor Hunt
with the request that the same be
transmitted to the State Legislature,
together with the recommedation
that it be enacted into law, many
of the conflicting paragraphs oi they
existing law are corrected and the
ambiguities made clear and plain.
All of, the State Tax commissioners
have devoted a very considerable
part of their time to the drafting
of he proposed bill and in com
pleting their' work alo"ng; "this line
they have. drawn pn the statutes of
Wyoming, Kansas and Minnesota
to a large extent'.
It will be recalled that the plan
of the Commission which they hope
to have the-Hegislature approve, is
for the State, Tax Commission to be
the central authority and the high
est authority in matters of assess
ment and taxation "of property. The
first State Legislature provided that
all property ..should be returned for
taxation purposes under an assess
ment at its full cash value. The
definition for 'true cash value under
the old law was given as the value
of a piece of 'property either real
or personal at a sum equal 'to that
amount,, a. solvent creditor would
accept the property from a solvent
debtor. The Commissioners have
given ""cash value" -a hew definition"
the price at which property would
sell if voluntarily offered for sale
by the owner thereof, upon such
terms as such .property is usually
sold, and not the 'price which might
be realized if such property was
Sold at a forced sale."
One feature-sljthc new bill which
was taken from he Wyoming law
provides that 'on the second Monday
in August, the date on which the
County Supervisors fix the county
tax levy, they shall prepare an esti
mate of the county expenses which
must be read into their public' pro-'
ceedings and which must show each
general item of expenditure propos
ed for the year. In this way it is
PRECINCT CASE HAS
TAKEN A NEW TURN
B1SBEE, Jan. 11. Action that
will be taken in the precinct case, it
is expected, will result in putting the
case in the. same position that it was'
prior to the death of Judge ' Bur-
diet, namely as being appealed to
the supreme court.
This will be bVotfght about by the
filing, by the county attorney, of quo
warranto proceedings against Jus
tice High. Assistant District Attor
ney Alexander Murry and J. W.
Ross, one of the attorneys for the
precinct officers, will go to Tomb
stone this morning and will' there
confer with County Attorney W. G.
Gilmore. It is expected that the
outcome, of the conference will be
the filing, by Mr. Gilmore, of the
quo 'warraitto" 'proceedings. A tle-
murrer will : then be filed and, it is
stated, an -appeal to the supreme
court will -then be taken by the at
torneys. fort the- precinct officers.
Roth sides are. anxious that .the. mat
ter be definitely settled by the su
The procedure ' will place the
case in the same, position that it
was immediately prior to the death
of Justice Bur.dick, with the excep
tion that Justice High will be made
defendant whereas Judge Burdick,
As to the quo warranto proceed
ings, through which Justice High is
asked to show cause for continuing
in office, it is expected that the same
decision will be rendered by Judge
Sutter, of the superior court, as he
rendered in the first case. The pro
ceedings are somewhat different, but
the matter to be decided is practi
cally the same, whether the board
of supervisors has the right to ap-!
point new officers. I
The board has appointed, on the J
first ruling of Judge Sutter, and law
yers here state that, as the question
is absolutely the same, he will de
cide that the appointee of the board
is the only legal justice in Bisbcc.
The taking of an appeal on this de
planned to give tax payers more
rccurate information as to' what
purposes the County Supervisors
proposed to spendi the tax funds.
What is considered by the commis
sioners to .be a very important fea
ture of "their new revenue law- is that
provision which limits an increase
in the amount of the levy not to
exceed 10 per cent over the levy for
the preceding year.
The assessment of transient herds
has been given thought in the new
bill and a new definition proposed
to be written into the law, reading,
"Transient herds of cattle, sheep or
goats wherever' mentioned in this
Act -shall be taken to -mean cattle,
sheep or goats that range, graze
or drift in more than one county
for any part of the calendar year."
The owner of the herds is required
to make affidavit to the County
Treasurer of the counties through
which his holdings have ranged dur
ing the year, and his home county
collects the tax and distributes it
pro rata among the several counties
name'd in his affidavit.
One very valuable' reform pro
posed to be accomplished by the
new law is the doing away with the
duplicate assessment roll in each
county which lias heretofore been
a great expense to tax payers. This
is done by the use .of an extension
sheet on the original roll, all of
which is prepared by the assessor.
The dates on which taxes be
come payable and delinquent have
not been changed but many other
dates in the old law have been cor
rected so as to not conflict in car
rying out the requirements sought
to be made law in the new tax
commission bill which provides for
various reports to the' Tax Commis
sion. Just how the Dill will be re
ceived " by 'the Legislature is, of
course, pure conjecture; but one
thing is known, it is the result of
many days and nights work of the
State Tax Commissioners, P. J.
Miller, the chairman, C. M. Zander,
Charles R. Howe, not forgetting
Jesse Boyce, the Secretary of the
Commission and several stenograph
ers. cision will then place the case in the
same relative position that it was
About the only difference in the
case is that the old precinct officers,,
instead of the new, will have to
show cause why they should con
tinue in ' office. As previously, both
sides1 are equally sure that the su
preme court will decide, in their
favor. It is understood that the
same proceedings as are being
brought by the Bisbee precinct offi
cers are being brought by the pre
cinct officers in Phoenix.
Both the newly appointed precinct
officers have been sworn in and their
bonds approved. Justice H. W.
Thomas was sworn in by Assistant
District Attorney Murry and his
bond has been approved by the
chairman of the board of supervis
ors. Mr. Thomas has opened an
office in the Muheim block. He has
not yet made a demand for the
books of Justice High's office.
