Arizona Fears That New
Mexico Will Get the Long
Terms Ahead of Her.
IS VERY SLOW
Phomix. Ariz.. Jan. XS. One of the
questions being discussed by the Ari
zona politicians the past few days is
the time when the election of the
United States senators will occur. The
Arlzonans want to get there ahead, of
.ew -Mexico it pesaioie.
The long term will be a prise well
worth workine for. It Is announced
from New Mexico that the membeni
f the legislature there will name their
uniton Mart-fa 11 If such is the case

However, the possibility of a dead

people did not express their choice as
is the case in Arizona, where the elec

be a mere formality. Should there be a
tight in New Mexico, the Arlzonans
might beat them to the wire.
