Measures Which the Solons at Phoenix
Would Have Enacted Into Laws .

PHOEXIX, Feb. 4. Ordinary
measles came near costing the State
of Arizona a good many thousand
dollars by reason of the affliction of
Representative Cocke of Maricopa
County with a case of the malady.
The Democrats of the House were
divided evenly, fifteen votes on a
side in the speakership contest be
tween Representatives Linney and
Bradncr. On account of the measles,
Cocke could not be present, and it
looked for a time that the dead
lock would keep the House of Rep
resentatives from transacting any
business until he could take his
Taking into consideration the
great cost to the State of the de
lay in getting organized and ready
to transact business, Representative
Bradner withdrew from the speaker
ship contest in favor of Linney and
made possible the election of the
Yavapai representative. It was gen
erally understood, although ro one
could speak with authority that
Cocke would support Linney, were
he present, but nevertheless. Brad
ner's action was considered a gener
ous one by all of his colleagues.
No Red For Him.
When the janitors of the House
of Representatives made ready the
desks of the members, they placed
upon the top of each desk a flaming
red blotter. The color was offensive
to Representative Lynch of Graham,
who declared that while he had been
away from the old sod for a good
many years, the English red was
still like the red flag to the bull in
the case of as good an Irishman as
Qualification of Members.
To pass on the question of the
eligibility of several of the members
of the Legislature who have been
drawing a salary from the State
since the last legislative session,
which is in violation of the spirit
of the State Constitution and pos-J
sibly a disqualification of their ser
ving as members of the legislature,
a committee of five was appointed
in the House yesterday consisting of
Representatives Graham, Whipple,
Kerr, Babbitt and Lewis. It is un
derstood the Attorney General has
held none of the members are dis
qualified from serving, but it was
deemed advisable to have action tak
en on the subject by the legisla
tors. Senate Gets Busy.
The members of the Senate show
ed their usual disposition to work,
and the organization of that body
occupied a very few minutes. Presi
dent Cunniff called the Senate to
order and following the prayer by
the Chaplain and the choosing of the
more important atttaches, the cal
endar was called and the Senate was
in working order.
The report of State Treasurer
Johnson was received and referred
to the Finance Committee, together
with a letter and a proposed bill
affecting the work of his office. A
letter was also transmitted to the
Senate and also to the House from
Public Examiner W. H. Plunkett
accompanied by a copy of a pro
posed bill, a new insurance code for
the State. The bill is somewhat
similar to the proposed insurance
code of last session and was suggest
ed to the Public Examiner by num
erous situations he encountered in
his examination of Arizona insur
ance companies. It seems probable
that before the close of the session
an insurance code in some form will
be enacted into law. The present
bill affects companies carrying on all
branches of insurance from plate
glass and burglary to old-line life.

it necessary to increase .the corps
of clerical assistants and each House

viously been appointed and made

by the name of Sloan and Robson.

No Need to Give Age.
Senator Davis of Maricopa Coun
ty who was an earnest supporter
of the Woman Suffrage Amendment
to the State Constitution following
out the suggestion made by Gover
nor Hunt in his message to the
Legislature, will tomorrow intro
duce a bill in the Senate providing
for the immediate registration of
the female voters of the State. Sen
ator Davis shows his consideration
for the women by providing in his
proposed bill that the giving of
their exact ages shall not be ne
cessary in qualifying as electors,
but a statement to the effect that
they are over twenty-one ye'ars of
age will be sufficient.
Watching Labor Legislation.
Attending each session of the
Legislature are five watchers in the
interest of transportation company
labor. They are: W. E. Paul, J. C.
Compton, and Homer Prickctt, all
conductors and members of the leg
islative committee of the order of
railway conductors; and J. C
Moore and T. J. Darrell, represent
ing the brotherhood of railway
trainmen. According to Mr. Paul,
it is not the idea of the trainmen
to ask for any legislation at this
session, but their presence in Phoe
nix is solely for the purpose of
watching the course legislation
PHOEXIX, Feb. 6. Speaker
Linney evidently considered the
Committee on Appropriations in
the House one of the most impor
tant he had to name, for it was with
a sigh of relief that he today an
nounced he had finally made up his
mind as who would be appointed to
serve as members of such. The
chairmanship of the committee was
given to Representative Babbitt of
Maricopa county the other members
being Brooks, Wren, Ball, Jacobson,
Kerr and Crofoot.
Put Hand in the Treasury.
The first bill to be filed with
Governor Hunt for his consideration
was Senate Bill Xo. 1 which appro
priates the money for the expense
of the extra session. The bill under
a suspension of the rules was passed
by the House ten minutes after it
was received from the Senate, and
about two .hours later Governor
Hunt gave the bill his approval.
The $50,000 appropriation is divided
$22,680 payment of members' salar
ies; $16,720.00 payment of employ
es salary; $2,300 railroad mileage of
members, and $8,300 possible con
Union Label on Sationery.
A resolution was adopted by the
State Senate today which was pro
posed by Senator Wood of Mari
copa County providing the letter
heads and other stationery hereafter
supplied to the Senate shall bear the
Union label thereon. The Maricopa
county Senator had complained the
day previous concerning the general
appearance of the stationery which
had been furnished the members.
It developed during the discussion
of the subject that the Board of
Control had been making an at
tempt to print for the State by
means of the multigraph certain
State work. The Phoenix Typogra
phical Union made objections to
this procedure and as the appear
ance of the work which was turned
out was not pleasing to the mem
bers, it was an easy matter to se
cure the adoption of the order
above referred to.
It has developed that the opinion
given by the Attorney General's of
fice relating to the employment of
child labor by the Legislature is in
contradiction of a previous opinion
given by the same office concerning
the case of little John W. Martin,
Jr., the 10-year-old office boy, which
the Board of Control desired to em
ploy. The Martin boy planned to
work for the State during his Christ
mas vacation and the salary he
would have earned would have am
ounted to $3.45. The Attorney Gen
eral ruled that he could not be paid
by the State Auditor and as a con
sequence, he was paid personally
by the Secretary of the Board of
Control. It further develops that in
rendering his decision concerning
the right of the State Legislature
to employ children as pages, the
Attorney General did not take into
consideration a provision of the
State Constitution which provides
that no child under the age of four
teen years shall be employed in any
gainful occupation at any time dur
ing the hours in which the public
schools of the district, in which the
child resides, are in session. This
provision has again been called to
the attention of the Attorney Gen
eral by the House of Representa
tives and further advice from him
Will Investigate Pioneers Home.
It now seems likely that as a re
sult of the quarrel between the in
mates and Superintendent of the
Pioneers Home that a legislative in
vestigation will be conducted. Al
ready Governor Hunt has requested
the Board of Control to make an
investigation and while no informa
tion to such effect can be secured
at the Governor's office, it seems
probable a change in superinten
dents of the institution will be ne
cessary. Already a bill has been
introduced in the Senate providing
that the Superintendent of the
Home need not himself be eligible
to admission to the Home, as
is the present law, a step many in
terested in the Home consider to be
in the right direction for the rea
son that a younger superintendent
than a pioneer is desired.
Dependent Children Law.
Representative Irvine of Maricopa
County is the author of a bill which
was today introduce;! in the House
providing for the partial support of
dependent and neglected children.
The plan of the Maricopa county
law maker is to have the county
and the state divide the burden
of caring for such minors, and his
bill provides for a maximum pay
ment of $12 a month where there
is one child in a family and a maxi
mum of $6 a month for any other
children in the same family.
The operation of the law is left
very largely in the hands of the
probation officers and juvenile court
of the- State, who arc required to
investigate conditions surrounding
the children. The bill also provides
for the appointment of probation of
ficers where none now exist.
Missouri adopted a bill similar in
purport which they called the Moth
er's Pension Law and a bill along
the same line was adopted in Colo
rado and there called the Mother's
Compensation Act. California, it is
said, has just recently adopted such
a law and Representative Irvine has
drawn on all these states for ideas
which he had embodied in the pro
posed Arizona Statute.
Determined to Devolp Water.
The Hon. Billy Graham of Co
chise County seems determined to
develop the water resources of the
Suplhur Springs Valley. At the two
previous sessions of the Legisla
ture, Mr. Graham had bills appro
priating money for the sinking of
wells for the development of an ar
testian water supply. They failed of
passage but the author of the bill is
persistent and now has a new bill in
the House concerning the subject
and appropriating a sum of money
for the building of the wells.
PHOENIX, Feb. 6. Speaker Lin
ney today announced his standing

so he stated to the House that he
had made an effort to satisfy the
desires of each member but that in

session will be held, Monday, Feb

Money for County Fair.
Senator Wood of Maricopa, who
served as Secretary of the State
Fair last year, is the author of a
bill which he hopes will work great
good for the agriculture industry
in the state. His bill provides that
counties may make appropriations
for County Fairs and it is his idea
that the more County Fairs given
in the state, the greater will be the
success of the State Fair, for
through the County Fair source,
county exhibits may be gathered,
and then displayed at the State Fair
in which he is unusually interested.
Of Interest te Printers.
Union printers of the State will be
interested in the action taken in the
House on a resolution proposed by
Representative Lewis, of Gila county
which provides that all printing
contracted for by the House of Re
presentatives should bear the Uuion
Label. The Senate without division
adopted such a resolution, but in the
House, the resolution failed by a
vote of 12 to 19. Three members
were absent or excused. The vote
was as follows: For the Union
Label, Brander, Brooks, Buchnon,
Cocke, Craig, Hall Johnson, Kane,
Kerr, Lewis, Murphy, and Saxon.
Against the Label, were: Babbitt,
Barker, Crofoot, Curry, Drenan,
Duncan, Ellics, Gonzales, Graham,
Irvine, Jones, Kelton, Lynch, Mad
dock, Moore, Whipple, Wren and
Many members who opposed the
bill considered the subject one which
should be left for decision by the
Board of Control.

OF GIRL HE IS
Then Finds Lassie Has
Not Attained Age
(From Saturday's Daily.)
A scene occurred in the Clerk's
office of the Superior Court yester
day that "takes the cake", a would
be groom asking for a marriage li
cense without having the faintest
knowledge of the name of the young
woman whom he desired to make
The swift pen of Deputy Clerk
Belcher came to a standstill, when
he inquired of the prospective bene
dict the name of the girl, who was
standing in a corner of the room
with a friend, and who was asked
by her liege lord the vital question
that the certificate might be forth
coming. She "answered with a
twinkle in her eye, "Maria Luna,"
approaching the desk of Cupid that
there might be no more embarrass
ing situations in securing the prized
document of wedded bliss.
Her smiles turned to an icy chill,
however, when another question was
propounded by Cupid Belcher who
was filling the office during the tem
porary absence of Clerk Farley in
the court room, her age being re
quired to make the wedding a sure
go. She stated that she was seven
teen, when the pen of the officer
was again hung up. Ortez again
came to the front and tried to con
vince the officer that the girl was
willing and he did not particularly
care about her age, as they were
cemented in affection's chain and a
year or so made not the slightest
difference so far as they were to be
considered. Ortez and his bride-to-be
finally left the room, sadly disap
pointed. The girl's mother resides
