DEH0CRAT5 OF ARIZONA SPLIT
0 UDICILISH OF THE CWEMOl
Continued from page 1.)
Their first step In that direction was
the selection of John J. Birdno, of
Graham county, for chairman of the
state central committee.
Birdno made an efficient chairman
and, despite the fact that he was per
sonally not particularly friendly with
the head of the ticket, through his
strenuous -work, every man on it -was
elected by handsome majorities over
their Republican opponents. His good
work did not, however, wholly satisfy
3Ir. Hunt and his fellow radicals, and
the campaign of 1911 had hardly ended
before steps were taken to weaken
Birdno's influence and that of the con
servative wing of the party which he
and his sponsors represented.
Trying- to Beat Birdno.
Many men were discussed as Birdno's
successor, but all were eliminated but
O. M. Roberts, state senator from Co
chise county, -who was decided upon
to lead the forlorn hope for the radi
cals. The conservatives believed in Birdno
and wanted him to stand for reelec
tion, or re-selection, to succeed him
self He demurred on the ground that
his business needed his attention, but
agreed, to stand for reelection by thej
new state central committee if no other
could be found to run. In the mean
time the radicals continued their propa
ganda in favor of a change in the
chairmanship and kept the currycomb
and brush on Roberts, fitting him for
Birdno Turns a Trick.
Thus matters stood until the arrival
of Mr Birdno in Phoenix last week. He
had made up his mind not-to be a can
didate and had selected George A.
Olney, a former resident of Graham
county, as the man best fitted to suc
Olney is now a resident of Maricopa
county and a director of the Phoenjx
National bank. He did not want the
place, but was finally induced to run
for it. His candidacy was kept quiet
and when senator Roberts and his
backers arrived on the scene and heard
of Olney's candidacy as the representa--ive
of the ultra conservatives, they
jumped to the conclusion at once that
they had a walkaway with the conserv
ative vote divided.
The convention was a stormy one.
"Hr radicals had chips on their shoul
ders from the outset, and no sooner
1 h" meeting been called to order

dry, because we believe
upon system depends

than they began to dare their oppo
nents to knock them off.
Conservnti es In Saddle.
To the selection of J. J. Birdno as
temporary chairman there was no ob
jection, but when Mark Dunbar, who
was not a member of the committee,
was named as temporary secretary, a
howl went up from the radicals. Dun
bar was duly seated by a vote which
showed the conservative strength.
Then came the question of permitting
proxies to vote, which brought on a
warm passage at arms between Mul-'
ford Winsor, who was there with a
Yuma county proxy, as the representa
tive of the administration crowd, and
W. T. Webb, the newly elected Demo
cratic elector, representative, or leader
of the conservatives. It was finally
ruled by the chair that no holders of
proxies should have the right to the
floor until the report or tne committee
on credentials had been received. That
temporarily settled that row.
Clash Between Leaders.
.-. While the committees were out. John
Robinson, of Yavapai, and Eugene
Brady O'Neill, of Maricopa, become em
broiled, and Robinson in a caustic
speech, flayed the Maricopa county
man, telling him In plain language
what he thought of him and his pecu
liar brand of Democracy. As Robinson
is a conservative and O'Neill a radical,
the chasm Between the factions, in
stead of being bridged over by the
wordy war, was further widened, as
was evidenced when at the close of the
meeting Olney was chosen chairman
over Roberts by the decisive vote of
42 to 25, and Robinson was made secre
tary by a unanimous vote.
Radicals Are Sore.
Whether or not the fight will be car
ried into the campaign is problematical.
The radicals are sore and it is be
lieved that many of them who are
radicals from principle will vote with
the "Bull Moosers" on election day as
a rebuke to the so-called conservative
Democrats, whom they charge with be
ing willing to ruin the Democratic
party if they can't rule it.
By comparison with the stormy Dem
ocratic meeting, the meetings of the
Republicans and Progressives were
tame affairs, though there was no lack
of enthusiasm in either. The old or
ganizations of both were chosen for the
new term and all went merry as that
marriage bell that is so much talked
about. Chairman J. Lorenzo Hubbell,
of the Republicans, is as confident of
carrying the state for Taft, as chair
man Alexander Is that Arizona- will go
almost - solidly for Roosevelt, or as
chairman Olney is that the state will
cast two votes for Wilson to one for
both Taft and Roosevelt.
Arizona Takes Politics Seriously.
Arizona is taking her politics very
seriously this year. It is the first
time her citizens have ever had an
opportunity to vote for a president of
the United States and they feel the
weight of the responsibility thrust
upon them by their new environment.
They are going to make the most of it.
The meetings of Monday and Tuesday
brought nearly every politician of note
In the state to the capital. Tom Camp
bell, the young candidate for congress
upon the Republican ticket, came down
from his home in Prescott with a
strong body guard led by that veteran
campaigner. "Bob" Morrison. Robert
L. Fisher, the Bull Moose candidate for
congress, came In from a spellbinding
trip in the northern counties to be
present at the "doln's" of his party, arid
Carl Hayden, present incumbent and
Democratic nominee for reelection to
congress, also found It to his advan
tage to be on the ground. Governor
Hunt was on hand, of course, as were
all other state officers and United
States senator Ashurst found it con- I
venlent to stay over after his speech at
the Democratic rally of Saturday night.
To revert to the spilt in tne ranks
of the Arizona Democracy, it might be
added that In the recent primaries for
choices of electors, only among the
Democrats was there a contest, and in
the contest the conservatives won, W.
T. Webb, of Graham, Wylle B. Jones, of
Pinal, and George Babbitt, of Coconino,
all conservatives, being chosen.
For Equal Suffrage.
It is not a coincident that each of
the three party platforms contain
planks favoring equal suffrage regard
less of sex. The women of Arizona
have organized pretty thoroughly, es
pecially in the most populous coun
ties, to bring pressure to bear to have
themselves placed upon an equal foot
ing with their sisters In California and
Colorado in the matter of vottngi and
the men of all parties are inclined to
let them have their way In the matter.
Gov. Hunt Is known to favor equal
suffrage, chairman Hubbell, of the Re
publican state central committee, ex
pressed himself 1n favor of giving
votes to women in an Interview on
Monday, while the Bull Moosers can't
dodge the issue while their leader is
so openly outspoken in advocacy of the
right and duty of women to vote.
Under the circumstances, It need sur
prise no one if an amendment to the
constitution giving the franchise to
the women of Arizona will be submit
ted to the people for ratification at an
AVhut Will Be Effect of How.
The effect of the present row within
the ranks of the Democrats, upon the
polltcial future of those now in power,
can only be guessed at, but it is
thought to be a safe guess that tho
next state election, two years hence,
will see a new lineup at the primaries.
Gov. Hunt naturally refuses to discuss
it and the victorious conservatives will
only say: "Wait and see."
The conservatives, by the way, don't
like to be called conservatives. They
say they are just plain Democrats, as
Drosrressive. In the matter of keeninc
abreast of the times, as is consistent
with common sense, and as conserva-
tlve. in the matter of holding fast to
that which is good, as prudent men I
"Just Plain Democrats."
"If you feel that you must say some
thing about us," said John Birdno,
"simply call us Democrats, plain Demo
crats, and that will describe us and
DroDerlv classify us. We are nroeress-
j ives in the sense that we are always
ready to take up a new Idea and try
1 it out to prove its practicability and
worth, but at the same time we are
conservative enough to refuse to com
mit ourselves to that idea until Its
practicahlllty and worth have been
While the Democrats are making
great claims as to the votes to be
polled for the Wilson and Marshall
election in Arizona on election day,
there is reason to believe that the
vote will fall far " short of expectations.
1 Wilson's Attitude.
In the first place the attitude of
Mr. Wilson, the Democratic candidate
for the presidency, toward the initla-
j tive, the referendum and particularly
i.ue rccaii, me mree cardinal princi
ples of Arizona progressiveism, has had
rather a chilling effect upon Arizona
progressives, and they are not as en
thusiastic over him as they were over
the constitution and Mr. Hunt a year
ago. Roosevelt's outspoken progress
Ivism Is much more to their liking, and
there Is good reason to believe that
not only will the Republican progress
ives, but many Democratic progress
ives who take their progresslvlsm
seriously, will be found lined up with
the Bull Moosers on election day.
So far as the Republicans are con
cerned, the leaders of the uarty
throughout the state are confident that
Mr. Taft will poll not only all the votes
polled by Ed Wills when he ran for
governor last fall, but thousands of
stay-at-homes who will come out this
year to cast their first presidential
vote. It Is generally conceded that
wins am not draw out the party
strength last December, while Hunt
drew not only the last progressive
vote, but the full vote of the Demo
crats, who, because Hunt wore the
Democratic label, wanted to be sura
that the label won whatever they may
ha-ve thought of the wearer. This jear
the Hunt vote is sure to be divided be
tween Wilson and Roosevelt, and this
gives hope to the followers of Taft that
their champion will have a chance.
