that have been ol tended by a just and impartial

The plain question in Attorney General
Daugherty's case is, therefore, not what has At
torney General Daugherty failed to do, but in
what vigorous way has he enforced the law
which lias caused some big interest to hate him
and go out to "get him," and to stir up big
hired lawyers and its little owned politicians to
attack the man who has offended this interest
and to say things that will be printed in news
papers even though they are never proved nor
even attempted to be proved ?

While we are inclined to agree with Major J
Kelly as to all the appointees whose terms expire
with that of the governor we are not so oertain
that it is for the good of the state where such ap- ,
pointments are made on boards, such as the re
gents of the university, for given periods. Wo I
believe, regardless of politics, that there should
be an interlapping of such boards in the very best
interests of the public. Men thus selected are '
not appointed because of any salary, but be
cause of their ability and unselfish desire to go ,
forward m the best interest of Arizona
