IN A QUANDARY
Are Opposed To Division of
County Statehood Bill
, Complicates Matters.
Clifton, Ariz., July 26. The citizens
'of this section, who have been vigor
ously pushing along the preliminary
work of launching the new county of
Greenlee, see a possibility of difficulties
The people of Graham county, from
which Greenlee has been separated by
an act of legislature, are opposed to
The provision of the statehood bill
that states all county officials shall
hold over has complicated matters for
Greenlee, as no provision was made
for the election provided for by the
county division bill. Governor Sloan
ordered a special election to cover this
case, and it is now rumored that the
people of Graham will take steps to
prevent the election. The situation
is a peculiar one and in case there Is
anything In the rumored litigation, may
cause the people of Greenlee some trou
ble. County division was provided for
prior to the passage of the statehood
bill, and the clause in the latter bill,
providing for all county, officials to
continue in office until the state or
ganization has been completed, leaves
no provision for the new county which
comes into existence Jan. 1, 1911.
