"We, the eitizens of Flagstaff and

request that y nit veto the bill provid

pugning the integrity of any' official,
wo believe the interests too vast and
varied to be safely entrusted lo any
three men. The bill embraces no suf
licient restiietionsniid safeguards, and
is likely to become the instrument of
monopoly and destroy the fund it pro
jxises to develop, as well as stand a
hairier to the home-spekcr and settler.

belt, and urgingth.it if the bill becomes
a law no lease of those lands be made

found the oppokitjon here to tho pro
jiosed measmi! based largely upon
ignorance, more upon putty polities'.
and with considerable prejudice and
suspicion mixed up with it. Tho bill,
which lias been modi lied in Ihe Senate
by Senator Teller's amendment, not
only jilact's a time limit on all leases.
but jirovides for their absolute cancel
lation whetievei thoTerritorv becomes
a State, mid it does not appear to me
at least not as I understand it to
justify the aspersions that have been
cast upon its authors and advocates.
I am informed that the opposition to
the bill as at present developed aj)
jiears to come from four ejasses, to-vvil:
1. Those who have gone on to school
lands, principally in tho sotilhorn part
of tlio Territory, settled and ntp.de jier
manent imjirovemenls, but who escape
their just share of the taxation their
neighbors pay by setting uj that they
aro not owners of the very land to
which they are now objecting to the
Government putting under territorial
control, and from which it is proposed
to derive a revenue for school and uni
veisity pttrjioses, and to require the
possessors to pay their just taxes.
2. Individuals or corporations hav
ing canals which are situated so as to
control a number of school sec' ions.
3. Republicans who don't like
Mtifihy and who oppose any measure
ho in t induces.
4. Democrats who don't like the
governor, and who are naturally ojj
posed to any measure he favors.
Personally, I am of the opinion that
the bill, if it becomes a law, will work
great good to this Territory in man
ways, and that every intelligent citizen
vvjll seo it so eventually, whether hi
favors or opposes the present means
sought to secure its betielits. I believe
I his measure can be nnd should be
made the basis of a wise and sound
forestry jxilicy for the Territory, one
will, or the bureau of forestry in the
department of agriculture, one which
uill protect our forests and make them
the basis nature intended them to bo
for all the above ground prosjicrity tho
Ten it nry will ever have.
If any abuse of prerogatives is even
attempted by those to whom this trust
is confided I believe the legislature is
able to tako cat e of it j if not, the courts
arc. And. finally. I am a believer in
local self-government and increased
educational oppoittiuitles, with nil that
it implies. lint even if the resti iclions
indieatid had not been insetted in it,
or the oijio.sit!ou was different, I do
not believe and cannot bring myself to
feel that the three members of our ter
litoiial government named as practi
cally titistces until the legislature
meets aio highway lubbers, nor that
I heir only juirpose is to swindle this
Tenitory or its citizens right and left
befoiethat time. My faith in human
nature is not entirely destroyed. No
man will go fuither than I to help
secure all needed safeguards for the
proper control and administration of
the tttist (imposed to he created, but I
favor the giowlh in education and all
that tends in that diiection, and I sin
eeiely hope that the Territory will be
allowed to ulilize, without having to
wait indefinitely, the otherwise un
available if sources within its bordeis
in inciciisc the giowlh of knowledge
among tho young.
There is a good deal more to this
matter than many people realize at
lirst glance. I hare not touched on
many points, but thought a few of the
essentials might be mentioned. If I
ha e .suggested any thoughts that Will
assist our peojilo In reaching tho best
decision as to their own interests I
shall feel amjily lejiaid for the little
