at once to help prepare the prison noon
Frank M. Ryan, president of the
Iron Workers, whose sentoaea of seven,
years was the heaviest of all, -was as
signed to work in the carpenter shop.
Although an iron worker, it was
thought best because of his age to give
him work comparatively light.

Also assiemed to the kitchen. Her

put to work mopping the floors.
Because of his feeble physical condi

Alone of all the others, the man who
occupied a cell to himself was Herbert

of keeping out part of McManlgal's pay

D-ire, of New Lisbon, foreman of the j
ury at Indianapolis mat conviciea tne
Cs defendants in the dynamite conspir- i
a. trial, has receivea an anonymous j
communication threatening his life.
The letter was mailed, unsigned, from
Chicago. It reads as follows:
"T"rank Dare, New Lisbon, Ind:
"Sir- This is to Inform you that you
will be placed under the sod within
fl.e net three months."
Mr Dare placed the letter in the
hands of H. H. Evans, prosecuting at
torney. He and Kvans will place the
matter before the federal authorities.
Writ of Error Granted.
After attorneys for the 33 convicted
dynamiter conspirators had withdrawn
their application for a writ of super
sedeas, federal judge Anderson today
granted their prayer for a writ of
error During the hearing, WN. Hard
ing announced that Herbert S. Hockin
would not ask an appeal in his case.
The hearing was brief. The grant
ing of the writ of error means that
the request for a supersedeas writ
will be taken to the United States cir
cuit court of appeals or one of the
judges of the court.
United States district attorney Chas.
W. Miller said he was ready to appear
with the defence's counsel before any
court or judge at sny time to argue
the application for a writ of super
sedeas. Chester H. Krum, spokesman for
counsel for the defence, declared Mr.
Miller would be notified as soon as
the judge and time had been decided
Satisfied With Sentence.
"Your honor," interposed Mr. Hard
ing, of the defence's counsel. just be
fore the hearing was cwtciBded. '-I
wish to announce thfet the defendant
Hockin -will not ask an appeal in
his case. He im satisfied with the
sentence imposed upon him."
"Then he must be the only one "

May Congregate Many State
Institutions on Old Fort
ARE BEING URGED
Phoenix, Ariz.. Jan. 2. Gov. Hunt
and the members of his office force
are already working on the call for a
special session of the legislature on
February 3. As the superintendents of
state institutions are rather slow in
forwarding detailed data about the im
provement appropriations they require,
it is not likely that the call will bo
finished and issued before the middh
of next week.
In his call the governor will recom
mend that provision be made to raise
sufficient funds to maintain the state
government for two years, as there
will not be another le$lative session
before 1915. In addition to the regu
lar appropriations, he will recommend
a number of special expenditure's, es
pecially for tne state institutions.
To Enlarge Capitol.
It will be suggested to the legisla
ture that a west wing should be added
to the capitol. Good roads legislation ,
will be recommended but the governor
will not advise a bond issue. Taxation ,
loirislatinn is also reauired. The state '
tax commissioners are now working on i
a revenue bill to present to the legis- i
latere when it meets. i
The governor has declined to say '
what "his action will be on the requests '
of the superintendents of the univer- ,
sity, asylum for the insane. Flagstaff
normal and Tempe normal for im- i
provements costing $325,000, will be. !
The abolition oi capital pumsnment
will be strongly advocated.
Call Will Not Be Lone.
In all probability the call will not
be a long one. When the legislature
meets, the governor will submit a long
message going more into detail con
cerning the appropriations, his views
-anltal iMJnlshTTIPTlt anrl -rirnui
Hundreds of requests that the gov
ernor include recommendations for
legislation of various kinds in his call
have been received at his office. The
Salt River Valley Water Users' asso
ciation wants a law compelling farmers
to rid their land of Johnson grass.
Some of the statutes demanded are
freakish in the extreme.
As the legislature can act only on
the matters mentioned in the call of
the governor, he exercises a great deal
of authority. Merely by omitting all
reference- to a certain subject from his
call he can make legislation on that
Sixty Busy Day.
With the recommendations that the
governor will make, however, and the
work of going through .the revised
statutes, the legislators will have its
hands full the entire SO davs. for which
the session is to be calledt Althounrh-f

now being prepared for occupancy.
Some of the boys are already there and
the girls -will be moved over from Ben
son about January 15.
Mny Move Feeble Minded.
It is possible that an effort will be
made to have a home for feeble minded
persons established at Fort Grant in
connection with the reform school.
Arizona has been widely criticized for
the way it takes care of its feeble
minded citizens. Many of them are at
the asylum for the insane, where the
surroundings are not at all good for
them. Some feeble minded boys and
girls are at the industrial school,
where thev retard the progress of the
other pupils. It is also possible that
the school for the deaf, dummb and
blind will be moved from Tucson to
Fort Grant. Whatever action is taken
on these matters, depends entirely
upon the governor, and he has not de
cided. AporODriations for Ariznnj exhibits

and his colleagues, however, put in. the

Denis With Referendum.
Practically none of senator Bailey's
address had been prepared in advance.
It dealt principally with the principle
of the initiative and referendum and
he directed his words toward his reso
lution, declaring that such a "system
of direct legislation as the initiative
and referendum, would establish, is in
conflict with the representative prin
ciple on which the republic is founded.
"During my service of more than 21
years in the two houses of congress,"
said senator Bailey. "X have never be
fore delivered an address in either of
them, intended more for the country
at large than for the body itself, and
I would not now depart from chat rule,
except for the extraordinary sltcation
in which we find ourselves with, re
spect to these questions."
Quotes Alexander Hamilton.
The first portion of senator Bailey's
address included long extracts from the
writings of Alexander Hamilton, prin
cipally publications in the Federalist,
through which Hamilton, just after the
formation of the government, carried
on his dlsCusslon of the principles upon
which he conceived It to have been
Opposes Direct Xieglslation.
"The wise and patriotic who dedi
cated this republic to liberty and in
dependence," declared senator Bailey,
"rejected a direct democracy in which
the people would rule without the in
tervention of representatives and
adopted a representative democracy in
which the people should rule through,
their duly chosen agents."
The senator quoted from statesmen
who participated in the formation oT
the constitution ajid the organisation
of the goverment to show that tfcej
had never intended that the republican
form of government should give itn
to direct legislation by the people,
such as the initiative and referendum
Takes Coffee -is Stimulant.
At one point his secretary broug it
in a cup of coffee covered with -i
napkin. Senator Bailey removed the
napkin and carefully arranged three
lumps of sugar on the edge of his desk.
"'Yellow journals might say this 13
a stimulant. Mr. President," he said.
"and to obviate that, I'll say It is cof
fee." A few moments later senator Bailey
turned to his secretary, in the rear of
the room, and made a request in an
undertone. The secretary went into
the Democratic cloak room and re
appeared with another pile of books.
"It does seem strange." said senator
Bailey, as a ripple of laughter went
around the senate, "that I should be
compelled to bring all these books

Bailey, "and though I did not favor

He quoted from governor Wilson
works to the effect that the views of
men expressed on the stump were often
tempered by the "common counsel"
they enjoy when they finally come ax

"How often have we seen men roar
