If So, John Hampton, of
Clifton, Can't B& Arizona
Presidential Elector.
POLITICS WARMS
UP IN NEW STATE
(By Geo. H. Clements.)
Phoenix, Ariz.. Oct. 5. The Demo
crats of Arizona hare stacked up
against a new trouble. At first the
count of the votes cast for presidential
elector at the primaries showed Geo.
A. Babbitt, of Flagstaff, and John R.
Hampton, of Clifton, tied for third
place. Then it was announced that later
delayed returns gave Babbitt a ma
jority and his election was announce";
still later it was found that Hampton
bad been legally elected. Now it is
found that Hampton can't legally serve
because he is a director of the first
National bank of Clirton, unless he re
signs his directorship.
The federal constitution provides
that no person holding an office of
L -""1-"- r iruat unaer tne government
...... .
shall be eligible to act as presidential
elector. The question was put un to
attorney general Bullard, who is a rad
ical supporter of the state administra
tion, of which he is a part, while Hamp
ton is conservative, and he holds that
inasmuch as national banks are created
under federal statutes, an officer of a
national bank or even a director could
be calssed as one holding an office ot
profit or trust and therefore Ineligible
to serve as a presidential elector.
Mr. Hampton today wired the Demo
cratic state central committee' that he
would resign his national bank direc
torship The question now is, if Bul
lard s theory ia right, how many of the
Hundreds of electors named on .the sev
eral national tickets are connected with
national banks and therefore ineligible?
TO MtedeeiTl f tl T.oO-?ln-t.,.u
The conservative Democrats of Ari
zonC not extent witT ignoring the
platform Just adopted, are taking steps
to recover the state legislature from
radical or administration' control if a
special .session is called this coming
winter.
Sam. Bradner, of Cochise, a radical,
was speaker of the last house, but after
the adjournment of the legislature, was
appointed by governor Hunt as secre
tar.y ,ot, "l45 1,ve stock sanitary board,
and it is believed will resign his seat
In the assembly rather than give up
his present rather lucrative position.
Whether he resigns or not, the con
servatives are grooming H. H. Llnney
for the speakership should a special
session be called.

uj. tue seiiaie, ana ne is slated to go,
but no one has yet been talked of for his
Place. The conservatives are particu
larly anxious to get him out of the
chair because he is of the obstinate
type. When he is sure he is right he
goes ahead, Davy Crockett fashion, and
refuses to be led into doing anything
he does not believe to be the proper
thing to do. No one has yet had the
temerity to discuss his successor
further than to say one will be found
when thq right time comes.
Recall for Hunt.
Governor Hunt is the first office
holder under the new regime to be
made the subject of a recall petition
and all because of his peculiar ideas of
prison reform.
Prison reform has come to be an
obsession with the governor, who be
lieves in reformation rather than pun
ishment. There are those in the state
who believe that a .man who commits
a crime should be punished" and not
mollycoddled. One man who thinks so

commonwealth, has circulated a peti
tion for the recall of the governor. The
petition was first put afloat at Winkel
man, when, it is said but four signa
tures were received. Five thousand and
more signatures will be necessarv. and
i it is not believed generally that Mr.
oparxs can get tnem. There were up
wards of 21,000 votes cast at the last
election and the constitution provides
that a recall petition must have the
signatures of 25 percent of the total
vote cast at the last election previous
to the circulation of the netition. Tfp.

RepubNcaiu at Work.
The Republican state central commit-
second floor of the Fleming block in
r-uoenix, and cnairman J. Ll Hubbell,
secretary Charles E. Arnold and assist
ant secretary Robert F. Kirk, with a
corps of stenographers, are busy send
ing out literature and getting in touch
with the Dartv workers in everv countv.
They hobi that owing to the schism in ,
the ranks of the Democracy, they have ;
oeiter tnan a fighting chance and they
ore striking while the iron is hot.
They are making capital of the fact
that both Democratic and "Bull Moose"
platforms declare for a downward re
Mslon of the tariff and are expatiating
to the cattle and sheep men and farm
ers of the state on the danger that will
accompany indiscriminate and unscien
tific tariff tinkering.
The "Bull Moose" state headquarters
are a floor above the Republican room
in the same building, in charge of sec
retary Leroy H CiviUe. An abund
ance of literature is on hand and 'much
is being distributed, but there is not
nearly the activity displayed as there
is in the stalwart headquarters on the
floor below. It is noticeable, however,
in looking over the list of ''Bull Moose"
precinct chairman that it includes many
of the young men of the city and coun
ty who hitherto have been active in
Republican politics such men as
Dwight B. Heard, mayor Lloyd B.
Christy, former governor Kibbey, Capt.
George Christy, Joe Alexander and
many others, mostly all young men,
prominent in business and social cir
cles. Democrats "Recuperating."
Thus far the Democrats have been
recuperating from the fatigue brought
on by the strenuous work of the first
three days of the wk. Headquarters
have not yet been opened but will be
opened on Monday. A strenuous cam
paign Is" not contemplated because so
.sure are the Democrats of victory that
they say the election of congressman
Hayden and Wilson and Marshall elect
ors is of such absolute certainty that a
campaign is unnecessary. They will
not admit that Roosevelt will draw
away any of the vote that was cast for
Hunt last fall, and this is where Re
publicans and "Bull Moosers" think the
Democrats are going to fall down in
their calculations.
The Republicans hope to secure a
number of spellbinders of note to "hpln
I the local talent during the campaign.

military company from the hundred
or more" of his countrymen who liTe
vin Mesa county. He will lead the
band to Greece in case of war between
Turkey and the Balkan states.
Doutis is inspired not only by pa
triotism but by the desire to avenge
an assault on his sweetheart by a
Turk on the island of Crete two years
ago. With th'e girl, Doutis was walk

sponse to the call to arms by the Gre
cian government of all its subjects in

be overcome
ENGLAND HAS NOT ACCEPTED
TLAN FOR IXTERVEXTION
Paris, France. Oct. 5. Neither Eng
land nor Austria has yet announced
adherence to France's project of in
tervention in the Balkans. It is
thought here that the point on which
the powers may be divided in their
effort to avert war is the exact form !
intervention is to take, while Great
Britain's hesitance may be her desire j
io avoia aispieasmg ner millions or ;
Moslem subjects.

Douglas, Ariz., Oct. 5. After three
days fraught with constant peril from
the Mexican residents of the valley,

local Mexicans, save about a dozen faith
ful families, residing in a radius of 15
or 20 miles, have banded themselves to
gether to hold the Mormon property.
They have agreed to resist by force of.
arms, if necessary, the return of the
colonists. They held a meeting at which
an apportionment of homes, lands and
other property was made and have
agreed in writing to resist by force of
arms if necessary the return of the
colonists. Many of them are well armed.

we also were well armed, and moved
about swiftly, keeping them from, gath
ering in a large force. We told them
that 200 iederals were coming at once.
"Gen. Sanjines made a promise of that
force, but when they are going we can
not say. We searched the homes of sev
eral leaders and found merchandise, har
ness and other valuables taken from the
homes of colonists and the stores, val

"All Mexicans denied knowledge of
the hiding place of merchandise, etc
Finally, becoming impatient, we began
the search. One house disclosed more

him with attempting to export 2000
rounds of ammunition to "Mexico, in vio

the federal court Saturday.
The case was made a test one and -the

overt act had been committed, and that
until the real exportation of the mu

ever, will not affect the conspiracy
cases which have had bills returned
against them during the present ses

lated what was said at this Interview.
"Mr. Harriman started by saying
New York was all right as far as the
president was concerned." testified
Mr. Loeb, "but that a bolt had oc
curred against the state ticket and
HIgglns because it was said to be an
'Odell ticket'"
Mr. Harriman, he added, asked that
the national committee help Odell.
"The president said," continued Mr.
Loeb, " 'Mr. Harriman, I do not know
the condition of funds of the national
committee, but I should be sorry to
have Mr. Higgins beaten and I shall
see Mr. Cortelyou.' Then the presi
dent directed me to telephone this to
Mr. Cortelyou. which J. did. Mr. Cor
telyou said he would take the matter
up with Mr. Bliss and would be glad
to see Mr. Harriman."
Taking up the Standard Oil con
tributions, Mr. Loeb said that after
two letters had failed to elicit a reply
from Cortelyou he suggested tele
phoning to Cortelyou. This failed to
secure a reply, he said, and he tele
phoned to New York, getting Mr.
Bliss.
"I told Mr. Bliss about the letters
I and the telegrams and that the pres-
laent wantea to Know u mere was
any Standard OH contribution. Mr.
Bliss showed a little irritation. 1
thought, in his manner, and said:
You may tell the president that the
spirit and the letter of Mr., Cortel
you's announcement as to corporation
contributions, will be. carried out and
that no contribution has been or will
be received from tho Standard OH
company."

"DYNAMITERS GET
THE DOUBLE CROSS"
One Defendant Alleged to Have Given
It to All the Others and
to the Union.
Indianapolis, Ind.," Oct 5. Herbert
S. Hockln, said by Ortie McManigal
to have been one of the organizers
of the "dynamiting crew," has given
information against the defendants In
the "dynamite plot" according to a
statement by district attorney Miller
today.
"Hockin has been double-crossing
everybody," said Mr. Miller in court
"He not only double-crossed McMani
gal, but he even double-orossed the
union. He has been doublecrossing
these defendants."
All the other defendants looked to
ward Hockln, who sat in their midst
his head buried in a newspaper.
Next to Frank Ryan, president of
the Iron Workers' union, Hockin had
been considered the most prominent
of the defendants. v
Claims Union Paid for Explosions.
Extracts from a little green check
book in which the executive board of
the International Association of Bridge
and Structural Workers is charged
with having kept an account of money
pald out for dynamiting jobs were read
at the trial.
District attorney Miller told the jury
that the executive board met regularly
and appropriated money for the ex
pense of explosives. The money, he
said, was paid In checks signed by pres
ident Frank M. Ryan. One of the stubs
read: "Expended for organization pur
poses, $233, at Clinton, Iowa."
It will be shown. Mr. Miller said, that
Ortle E McManigal was paid that sum
for an explosion at Cllntop, and that
"the" whole system of explosions
throughout the country was carried on
with the approval and support of the
officials and executive board of the
union."
When McManigal hesitated about
blowing up Jobs in Peoria, according
to Mr. Miller, Edward Smythe, business
agent there, wrote:
"Don't fear. I have friends on the
police force. In fact I control the
police."
