The legislature can do no better
,vork tlian to' pass tho bill for tho.rerrw-
val of tho territorial ponitontlary from
.Yuma to Prescott. Tlio roasous" for Iho
onactmont of tho law making tho
change aro manifold and every one of
them is cogent. Yuma is situated in
an out of tho way place, diflieult and
costly of access for most of the com
munities of tho torritory, while Pres
cott is a central locality, approachablo
from anv cnuntv. The expense of
maintaining convicts at tjio present
prisou is enormously excessive of what
'it-should tie. .Vero it iu a place
where supplies could bo easily obtained
a great savliig could be effected. Iu
1891-92 It cost a littlo over nincty-scv-ou
and a half cents per diem to keep
each prisoner. For the years 1893-94
it cost nearly eighty-sovon cents. This
was for actual mamtonauco and exclu
sive of official salaries and moneys
speut for repairs;, et cetera. Jfhere is
no reason, except tho iuconvouienco of
the present location,- why this should
not bo reduced at least ouo half. Dur
ing tlio years 1893-91 there have boon
57 pardonsgranted, and In almost every
instance executive clemency was exer
cised because of the great injury to the
health of the prisoners caused by tho
excessive heat of Yuma, notwithstand
ing tho expensive fan system in oper
ation in the prison. This wholesale
turning loose rf criminals on the com
munity at large has been ocourrlng
ever since the institution was created
and will continue until it is placed
where the climate is endurable by tho
human species. The people aio bound
to be affiliated with an unnecessary ex
pense of thousands of dollars and the
outpouring of a large number of crim
inals annually until tlio penitentiary

Arizona has tho laud and oilier natural
