the Arizona press, to the last ink pot,

The Democratic press, during the

them, but now that the things have
been inserted and the seriousness of it
is apparent, the editors are talking
the other way. They realize that it

The fact acted as a signal to let
loose upon the convention all the viala
of wrath. Even the Arizona Demo
crat protested vehemently that the
constitution was utterly ruined and
that the people would not accept It.
Other Democratic papers fell Into line
until there is now not one that is not
protesting the action of the delegates
and it would be no surprise to see the
constitution defeated if the papers
hae their way.
The Douglas International, Demo
cratic, has this to say: "Arizona wants
a judicial system which shall be su
perior and away above all political
controversies. We want courts that
cannot be subjected to harassment in
the enforcement of the law for and
against every interest, class or indi
vidual." The same paper quotes at length a
townsman to the effect that there is
practically no support of the conven
tion on the recall proposition. It fur
ther editorializes in the story contain
ing an interview with the townsman
in question to this effect:
"The International finds that among
the business men there is little sup

Not a Conservative Crowd.

serious mistake In thinking that this

Another big thing remains to be
done. The constitution must provide
J for a method and a percentage for
amending the constitution.
"A constitution containing only es
sentials and one easily amended" is
what president Taft urged upon Arl
z6na and New Mexico.
Just what he meant by essentials is
a thing which has caused a diversity
of opinion in Arizona. It also leads
to the overthrow of the Republican
majority in the territory, for the people
insisted that direct legislation is an
essential. President Taft could not be
got to deny this, although the Repub
lican machine leaders in Arizona in
sisted that not only was such action
not essential within the president's pur
view; it was or would be fatal to state
hood. Direct legislation in the most
stringent form is in the constitution as
Because of this condition, it is confi
dently expected that now the conven

and easy amendment of the constitu
