The Ultra Conservationists
Would Have It All Held
ADDS TO DIFFICULTY
Phoenix, Ariz., Nov. 25. The Arizona
constitutional convention is deliberat
ing upon one -of the most important
bits of organic law making that can
come before a public body such as this.
It is the matter and manner of the dis
position of state lands.
In the matter of public land, Arizona
is peculiarly situated because of the
great forest and Indian reservations, as
well as the streams devoted to irriga
tion projects which lie within her bor
der. All told, these take from the pub
lic domain some 20,000,000 of -acres,
much of It the finest timber and agri
cultural land in the southwest; one for
est reserve being the greatest fine tim
ber section known to exist anywhere in
Bonuses Cause' Trouble
In addition to this land, the iJnited
States has heretofore granted many
millions of acres of land to the rail
roads as bonuses, and these bonuses
are now said to be at the bottom of
the trouble which is racking the con
vention. In the enabling act under which
Arizona is entering the union as a
state, there is provision for 2,250,000
acres of land to be devoted to the use
of Yavapai and Pima counties alone as
a means of raising the great bonded in
debtedness of these counties, debts ac
cumulated in assisting the Southern
Pacific and the anta Fe railroads in
building through those counties. Be
sides this, the state is entitled to -four
sections of land in every 3G-foV school
rr, ernnrt nf land jrrants to railroads
Tfl P-nvirnment reservations which of J
necessity lie in blocks for miles, mucn
of this school, land must be selected
from other "sections than those in which
i-.o. fiiintmflnt oritrinallv auDlied. Be-
cause of this, there are aliout 3,000,000 ,
acres of land belonging to the state j
which have not been selected, anere
fore the state may go anywhere upon
the public domain of Arizona not pat
ented or, reserved and select this land.
It is this fact that causes a certain
faction in the convention to appear to
be in favor of tying the state's hands
so completely by constitutional provis
ion that the state may sell none of its
land during the life of any person now
living, while some few wish to reserve
the land to the state in perpetuity.

The state, including school land and

he intends to return to Mexico to take

scribed as "a great patriot." would ra-

fective measures for allaying the
present popular discontent in Mexico.
Of Francisco I. Madero, leader of
the revolutionists Gen. Reyes said:
"Madero lacks in experience. He has
