railroad men say that the general man

sanction a strike on the G. H. based
upon the grievance which the men
claim is theirs by right. Not having
the support of the general organiza

arbitrate, the employes say. As for
the railroad company's end of the argu
ment, it is mostly silence, as the offi
cers have nothing to say.
The time for the strike was settled
upon, being last Thursday at midnight.
But no strike occurred and now the
railroad men say that a strike is grow

men are confident that the two clauses

Mutual Improvement League.
One of the features of life in the
Arizona prison is the organization of
a "Mutual Improvement League," with
a constitution .and bylaws, officered
by prisoners. It embraces in its mem
bership practically all of the Ameri
cans and many of the Mexicans and In
dians among the convicts. In addition
to its constitution and bylaws, the
league has some very elaborate sta
tionery and carries on an extensive
correspondence, through its secretary,
with prominent "upllfters," Elbert
Hubbard and Miss Jane Addams, for
instance, and with others of leaser
note. Those responsible for the ex
istence of the league believe it to be

A strong factor in Inducing prison
ers to "be good" under the new or "re

mation, is the double time off given all
honor men who live up tq honor re

escape or does escape and is recap
tured he forfeits all good time and is
never again given any of the priv

the hot suns of Florence bearable. He
knows what a break for liberty will
cost him and as a. rule, is afraid to
take the chance.
To Save Prbioners' Property.
Governor Hunt has In mind the in
stitution of a further reform if the leg
islature will back him up with the
necessary legislation. He wants it
made possible to have the property of
a man who may be sent to prison safe
guarded so his family, if he has one,
may get the full benefit of it or if he
has no family, it may be saved for him
self against the day he may be re
leased. As it is at present, the mo
ment the doors of a prison close be
hind a man convicted of crime, there
is usually a rush of cormorants to, by
hook or crook, appropriate his property
regardless cf who may suffer. The
old idea was that a convict had no
rights that any one was bound to re
spect. Governor Hunt wants a change
in that respect, particularly if the con
vict leaves a family behind him. One
of the roinmonest methods of getting
the means cf the family of a convict
is employed by those who pretend to
have influence with those in authority
sufficient to brmr about the pardon
of the mtjrtunate one. Money is. of

that Bradner has decided not te resign.
