IKE GOVERNOR'S MESSAGE
Governor Brodie's first message to
the legislature is a plain, practical
and sensible document.
The governor does not indulge in 1
any literary flights, or any lengthy ;
and meaningless preambles but settles ;
uow to business from the opening !
The first proposition which he take.-
up is the financial one. and he giver-
in detail the present financial condi
tion of the territory, the priucipal
item of which and the one most inter
esting to tax payers, is the fact that
the total debt of the territory is
$1,065,401.90 and the aggregate indebt-I
edness of the various counties i. ;
sfe-t F1A r 1 Art . 1 a a . I
9L,DLt,iM., me aggregate annual m
terest of the counties lieing 7. -647.64.
Yavapai county leads in its indebt
edness, with $310,163.78 and an annual
interest of $15,508.19. Marricopa is
second on the list with an indebted
ness of over $267,000 and N'avajo and
Santa Cruz do not appear on the list
with indebtedness. Referring to the
high rate of taxation the governor
"The time is now ripe, I believe, in
the history of Arizona, when the mat
ter of the reduction of the rate of tax
ation should be taken up by the legis
lature of the territory in a spirit of
fairness, and ways and means devised
by which the result so much to be de
sired may be realized."
One of the remedies he suggests to
reduce the tax rate is to levy a tax
on the product of mines. Another
one. and one which must certainly
commend itself to all fair minded cit
izens is an amendment to incorpora
tion laws, whereby the fee- will lie di
verted into the territorial treasury in
stead of into the pocket of a single
Under the present law the territorial
secretary is said to receive any where
from $33,000 to $50.0U0. an amount en
tirely out of proportion to the respon
sibility or the work of the office
whereas, with ail the liberality of the
laws, the territory derives no revenue
whatever. The secretary in addition
to this is paid a salary from the gen
eral government and the legislature
two years ago provided for an as-i-!
ant secretary at good salary to lie
paid out of the territorial treai-ury.
Governor Brodie's suggestion on
this question is certainly an excellent
one and one which must commend it
self to every memlier of the legi-la
ture. The governor recommends that
all articles of incorporation lie filed
with the territorial auditor and the
fees received from them
into the territorial treasury.
He adds: "A complete listing of
ail property in the territory sul.j. et
to taxation, in conjunction with the
means above outlined for an increase
in the revenues, will, to my mind, se
cure to the territory at a greatlv re
duced rate of taxation, an amount ;
necessary to cover all legitimate ex- 1
penses of government and do away for
all time to come with a floating debt,
and in addition provide means for the
redemption of our lionded indebted
ness without manifest burden to the
taxpayers of the territory."
The governor also rails the attention
of the legislature to the necessity of
establishing some unfailing method of
collecting the tax known as the poll :
tax. the full amount of which col lee- j
tion coes to the snnnort aDd mainten
ance of the public school system of the
territory." and adds:
"In 1901 there was collected as a
im ill tax and turned into the school
fund, the sum of $465,553.64. while in
1902 there was collected as a poll tax
and turned into the school fund only
$23,942.51. a most notable decrease in
the revenues from this source: to
which your attention is most eann-t-ly
invited, remembering that thi
method of taxation reaches many citi
zens who would otherwise aid in no
way in the support of the territorial
He also recommend- that a law lie
passed placing all county official- mi
a salary and compelling them to turn
all fees into the county treasury and
that county assessors in all count ie-!
lie made elective instead of appointed.
He also recommends the formation of ;
supervisorial districts in the variou- i
counties and that where more than
one representative to the legislature
is elected. they should lie apportioned
to the various districts.
He recommends caution in the mat
ter of an eight hour law. and recom
mends a primary election law provid- ,
iug for primarie- of both parties on
the same day and at the same place-.
While it coutains other matters of
importance these are among the more j
prominent features of the message.
The establishment of a whipping
post in Missouri is a return to sensible
methods of punishment. There are;
certain petty crimes committed which
110 form if punishment will fit so per ;
ft.uy as a good flogging and it i
miirh less expensive than feeding the
criminals in jail.

ing their presidential candidate f. ,r
1904 as though there'was
of his lieing elected.
Speaking of the meeting of the Ari
zona Press Association in Phenix, the
Itisbee Review suggested in a recent
issue that "there is one thing which
the asociation might take up that

the eud of the year, and we under-
-tand that $l.i covers the publication
of an ordinary incorporation in that
city, but this price does not apply
elsewhere in the territory. The at
tention of Secretary Stoddard should
be directed to the injustice to papers
which require the legal rate for pub
lishiug articles of incorporation.

Sensible men did not believe that
the democrats meant what they said
last fall in their platforms. Some en
thiisiasiats even went so far as to pre
dict that the more intelligent mem-
liers of the party would manifest
their disapproval of the platform at
the polls by voting against it. The
bitter were mistaken. A democrat
seldom fail to vote his ticket no mat
ter who the candidate or how anarch
istic or unreasonable the platform.
The word democrat at the top of the
will capture him every time,
s the well iuformed democrat
that the platform stood for
nothing but vote catchiug and knew
(all well that he was not taking any
chances in apparently voting for

The amusing feature is the discovery
made since election, bv certain demo-
cratic paeis. that the platform was a
very imperfect affair at best and needs

praise.- and howled its virtues during

A LEGISLATIVE PROBLEM
Every uewswper in the territory
should give au active support to the
recommendation of Governor Brodie
to have the law changed in reference
to tiling of articles of incorporation.
It is a matter of justice to the terri
tory as well as a matter of self protec
toiu tothe business of the newspapers.
The territorial secretary not only fo
ri vee a revenue of froni ' to
000 per year from this business which
is entirely out of all proportion4to
the responsibility and labor con
nected with it but he has fixed the
price for their publication at a figure
away below their real value.
While demanding $10 or $2i for act
ing as agent of rorporat ions, doing
business outside of the territory, and
which involves neither lalior or ex
pense, there being absolutely nothing
to do as such agent in uiuety-uiiie
cases out of a hundred, he advises all
seeking to incorjiorate that the price
of publication is $15. The secretary is
looking for the long end of the busi
ness, and has shown a disposition to
deprive the newspapers of their just
dues for the publication of such no
tices. This feature, however, of the
proposed change in the law is of minor
importance the real salient poiut
about the suggestion being the divert
ing of the fees iuto the territorial
treasury. In addition tothe fees pro
vided for at present a slight addi
tional fee should lie required also, as
there is no good and valid reason why
these companies which take advantage
of our liberal laws to incorporate
should not help liear the burdens of
expense of the territory.
Right in line with this is another
suggestion of Governor Brodie which
is an ecxellent one. That is that offi
cials be paid salaries and all fees be
turned into the treasury. The secre
tary of the territory receives a salary
of $1,800 from the general govern
ment. Au increase of this, of from
$700 to $1,200 by tie territory making
a fixed salary of from $2,500 to Si.i'.
with a reasonable appropriation tor
an assistant, the general government
already providing something for assis
tance, would make ample coniensa
tion for the position. This would lie
even more than is paid by mam
states. Then let all the fees lie paid
into the territorial treasury.
With the present high rate of tax
ation and the shirking of taxation by
large corporations, something is abso
lutely necessary to lie done. Is the
present legislature enable of grap
pling successfully with this question
and of solving it for the benefit of the
tax payers, and without doing injus
tice to any.
Since the above was in tyie the
Journal-Miner has received by to
day's mail from the south the follow
ing communication from the secre
tary of the territory:
"Enclosed Hud copy of articles of
incorporation of the New York-Ari
zona Mining company. If $15. which
is the price charged for such publica
tions by the papers here, will lie sat
isfactory to you for the pulilicatio
of these articles, kindly have the pub
lication made in your paper and send
me affidavit thereof and your bill
which will i immediately paid. "
ISAAC T. STODDARD.
Secretary of Arizona."
The aforesaid articles, refer led
in the letter, would till a spac
from twenty-five to. thirty inches
the paper, and the price offered,
which is fixed by the secretary would
bankrupt any paper, which deluded
upon legitimate patronage for sup
port. Pajiers which are lieing pub
lished for fun. regardless of cost can
uo doubt afford toaccept such busi
uess. The secretary's fees in connec
tion with the filing, and recording of
the above, which will occupy prolmbly
an hour's time, of one of his clerks
will amount to from $12 to $14. with
a prolnble fee of $10 or $20 more, for
acting as agent one year, while for
putt iug it in tyjie. publishing it six
insertions in the paper and making
an affidavit of publication, the notary
fees of which are seventy five cents,
the muuiflcieut sum of $15 is offered.
The Journal-Miner wants all the
business it can get. but wants fair re
muneration. Phenix papers seem to
have accepted the Hat of the secretary
that $15 shall be the maximum price
paid for publication of articles, but
the Journal-Miner is not prepared to
do so. By all means let the legisla
ture break up this articles of iucopora
tiou trust and reduce the salary of sec
retary to a price more commensurate
with the duties of the office.
A memorial has lieen introduced in

that the permanent establishment of

of 2.000 or 2.500 feet will take a well

Everything Will Be of the Latest and
Most Approved Designs and
Best of Work.
The heating plant of the new school
building will le furnished by the B.
F. Sturtevant Co., of Boston. The
plan of the heating apparatus is what
i- known as the indirect steam fan
-y-tem. Cold air is taken in from the
outside near the Hrst floor line: is
carried downward to the basement,
where it riasses over numerous steam
coils where it is heated to the desired
temperature. The air thus heated, is
passed upward to the various rooms of
the building by means of a large cir
cular fan. six feet iu diameter, which
is kept rapidly rotating by a small
steam engine which is a part of the
heating system. Brick flues are pro
vided so that each room has one flue
w hich shall conduct thereto the warm
pure air. and another flue which
shall carry away the used and foul
air. The warm air inlet is placed
near the ceiling line and the foul air
exit underneath at the floor line.
The movement of air in and out of
each room is such that each room will
be supplied every six or seven min
utes with its own volume of fresh
warm air. The same amount of im
pure air therefore will lie carried out.
This arrangement guarantees that the
pupils will uot breathe over the same
air again and again as is the case
w hen rooms are heated by stoves.
The temperature regulation is auto
matic. Fach room is provided with
what is called a thermostat, which is
iu appearance somewhat like a ther
mometer. It can be set for any desired
lemperat ure. It for example. i0 degrees

is explained on the principle of ex

room become- too warm, metallic
parts of the thermostat expand and
open the dampers which supply the
cold air. When the room becomes
cool, contraction causes the warm air
dampers to open wider.

POLAND IS BOOMING
Poland Extension Pays Sixteen
Thousand Dollars For Group
Murphy I Vastar, the Sellers, Devel
oping Another Group Which
is Equally Promising.
H. J. Murphy, who with his part
ner, yesterday received $16,000 for the
sale of a mining property, to the Po
land Mining Extension Co. will be fa
vorably remebmered as one of the
locomotive engineers on the S. F. P.
and P. railroad duriug its early his
tory. On retiring from railroading,
Mr. Murphy engaged in mining and
has been devoting his time assidu
ously to it ever since. Yesterday's
visit to Prescott was the first time
Mr. Murphy has been in Prescott for
over two years.
The claims disposed of by him yes
terday were the Copper King, Sum
mit and Yirginia.aud they give prom
ise of becoming dividend payers, un
der the careful management of Mr.
Mr. Murphy and Mr. Yassar have
another group of claims, called the
Evening Star group which they are
developing and getting in shape to
The Copper King group is located
near the Poland mines and the Even
ing Star group is located about one
and one half miles south of the Po
land tunnel. It is equally promising
with the one just sold.
Mr. Murphy says that the town of
Poland is growing rapidly and is
destined to become a larger place
than Jerome at uo distaut day in the
future. He says that he belives the
best mines in the county are to be
found within a radius of few miles of
Poland and the growth aud prosperity
of the place does uot depend on any sin
gle mine or upon the operations ofa sin
gle company. He is quite enthusi
astic over the mining outlook for the
county generally. The progress made
in the Poland country during the past
few years has certainly been remark
able, aud the sucees achieved has
been equally remarkable.

WM. SACHS' DEATH.
Result of an Assault By Robbers on
Him About a Week Ago.
Vm. Sachs, an old time and well
known teamster died this morning.
Mr. Sachs was for a long time in the
employ of F. M. Murphy and later was
coachman for T. (J. Norris. He has
been at Castle Creek Hot Springs for
some time, coming up from there
about a week ago with considerable
money. He took rooms at the Globe
lodging house, and while on his way
there one night was assaulted on the
street and badly beaten about the
head and then robbed. Erysipelas set
in from the wounds received and re
sulted in his death. Deceased was an
industrious and peaceable man.
SURPRISED HIS WIFE
A story is told of Pennsylvania
farmer who wore his old suituntil
everyone was tired of it and bis esti
mable wife was almost ashamed of the
hustling man who had been inside of
it so long. But one day he went to
town to sell his produce and while
there he determined to buy a new suit
and, happy thought, surprise Eliza.
So he bundled a ueat suit into the
wagon and drove homeward.
It was after night as he hurried
homeward and at a bridge over a river
he stood up in the wagon and peeled
and threw the despised old suit iu
the water. Then he reached for his
new clothes. They were gone had
jolted out of the wagon. The night
was cold and his teeth chattered as he
hurried home. He surprised Kiia
even more than he anticipated. E.
CARPETS AND MICROBES.
An exchange discusses the use of
carpets on floors and finds them un
sanitary, owing to the immense num
ber of microbes that find lodgment in
them. The case is described where
in Ave minutes in a carpeted room To
germs settled on a three inch saucer
This without stirring the germs by .
sweeping. When the carpet was swept
2,700 settled on the saucer in five min-
utes. If carpets must be used, they
ought to be taken up frequently, it is
urged, and beaten so that the wind
may carry away their microbic con
tents. Surgeons allow no carpets in
rooms occupied by their patients in
the operating room. They even have
the walls brushed and all pictures and
other accumulators of microbic dust
removed. Every particle of dust i.-
likely to harbor dozens of germs.
This being the case, the carpet is an
object of suspicion.
THE MODERN DWELLING.
There is an instructive paper in he
February Delineator on the home
treated from a hygienic standpoint.
Notwithstanding what science has ac
complished in the last decade or so.
and although the principles of by-
giene are geuerally disseminated
among the people, there is a disregard
of the plainest laws of health in many
households. The evil is at the root in
many cases: too little attentiou is
paid to the choice of a habitation aud
its location. It costs people years of
their lives to live in the large cities
according to statistics, but for most
of them it is unavoidable. The ar
ticle is the first of a series on heatth
