Kibbey Is a Third Termer and
Believes that Roosevelt
Would Accept Nomination if
Tendered Unanimously, '
"President Roospvolfcds sincere in his
desiro to see Arizona and NcwrIex
Ico admitted into the union as Roparato
states," said Governor Josoph II. Kib
bey, who arrived in Globe last evening.
The governor has .recently returned
from tho south, where he went to moot
the president by special invitation from
the latter, and when seen last evening
ho expressed some resentment at tho
manner in wliich he had been misquoted
by the territorial press as to his confer
ence with the president and at tho re
lections made on tho president's sin
eerity. "The presidont told me frankly that
ho had hoped to sco Arizona and Now
Mexico united into one state, but as
Arizona had so strongly expressed her
unwillingness to enter in that manner,
ho would do all in his power to sco that
both territories secured individual state
hood. Ho still believes that both ter
ritories lack somo of tho necessary
qualifications for statehood, but ho is
anxious to see tho territorial form of
jovornment within tho confines of the
United States abolished. Tho president
assured mo that ho had never in the
ilightest degreo folt unfriendly to
Arizona and that ho had never intend
ed to discriminate against tho terri
tory. "When I left Phoenix for Vicksburg
to meet tlip president I did not know
what object ho had in sending for me,
but I was determined to bring up tho
statehood matter. However, I was not
compelled to broach tho matter to him.
Almost tho 'first thing ho said to mo
was; 'Does Arizona really want state
hood?' "I replied that we had rather given
up liopo of it in tho near future- and
had about resigned ourselves to a wait
until after tho next census before push
ing our claims, but when wo read of
how he had pledged himsolf to separ
ate statohood for Now Mexico, to Gov
ernor Curry, we all wanted it.
"Tho president said that ho would
consult tho lenders of both houses of
congress not tho party leaders, as ono
of the territorial papers misquoted and
seo what could bo done. Shortly nftor
arriving homo I received a letter from
tho president in wliich lie stated thnt
ho did not feel that anything could bo
accomplished at tlto coming session
of congress, but ho hold out strong
hopes that the noxt session would re
sult in tho admission of both terri
tories." Governor Kibbey expressed his belief
thnt with tho president lined up for
us, Arizona has a splendid opportunity
of becoming a state, providing the right
man is chosen aa delegalo to congress
at tho election noxt fall.
Asked whether ho was a Eoosovolt
third termor, tho govornor declared em
phatically that ho was. He said it
would bo Roosovolt or a man backed
by tho executive, or a domocrat, who
would bo tho next president, and ho
also oxprcssed tho belief that if Roose
velt were tendered tlto nomination for
president by a unanimous vote lie would

other lips than her's.
"I acknowledge Arthur Brown and

of writing paper. It was dated Febru
ary 10, 1905, and was brought to light
by Colonel Maurice M. Kaighn, an at

from Brown, with the ink not yet dry;
how sho fnirly dnnccd into the oflice
and how sho beamed with joy as she

all would be well.
Other testimony in Mrs. Bradley's

RATHDRUM, Idaho, November 21.
Tho most dramatic incident connected
with tho trial of Stevo Adams was the
introduction of two letters by James II.
Hawley, leading counsel for tho state,
this afternoon. Tho defense objected
to their being read to tho jury, but
Judge Wood declared them properly
identified. Thoy wero written between
tho time that Adams concluded and
signed his confession. Tho letters were
written by Adams while in tho Idaho
penitentiary to Mr. and Mrs. .Oliver,
an aunt and uncle, and to his brother,
W. T. Adams, and their general tenor
was disclosed in tho following extract:
"I was glad to hear of your belief
in my innocence. 1 wish to God I was,
but I fell in bad company and was led
to commit a number of most vilo sins,
breaking tho ' laws of both God and
man. Had I stayed .with my church
and with tho raising of my poor par
ents, who art, I believe, in heaven, I
would be a free man today, but I al
lowed myself to bo led into sin most
damnable and I am going to try and
undo what sin I dono and sin no more."

WASHINGTON, D. C, November 21.
William J. Bryan arrived today to
attend the wedding of the daughter of
a lnend. He had a conference with
several other friends. To reporters Mr.
"The administration is prepared, as
we are informed, to recommend tho pos
tal savings bank. While this will doubt
less encourage deposits which could bo
handed over .to the banks, it docs not
furnish complete relief, because tho
plan as presented limits deposits and
does not contemplate the opening of
circulating accounts. The business
community, therefore, cannot use postal
banks to any great extent, and besides,
it would take borne time to inaugurate
tho system and secure the necessary
number of employees to make the plan
effective. I believe it possible f.;r tho
government to give immediate relief by
an act of congress providing for the
guaranteeing by tho government of all
deposits in all national banks, the banks
thus guaranteed to agree to reimburse
the government for any losses incurred
and to make the reimbursement in pro
portion to their deposits. The advant
age of this plan is:
"First: That every depositor in
such guaranteed bank feels secure.
"Second: The expense will bo paid
by tho banks which got the benefit.
"Third: It can be put into effect
immediately, thus restoring confidence
and enabling business to be resumed.
"It is probable that all national
banks will be willing to take advantage
of tho guarantee because the additional
security given depositors would bo of
great advantage to tho banks. The gov
ernment would have ample security in
tho capital and surplus of banks which
would voluntarily join tho plan. As
each bank becomes interested in the
proper management of every other guar
anteed bank it would bo easier to secure
legislation necessary for the correction
of such abuses as exist."

to appeal to the supremo court and we
are confident of ultimate victory."
