FIGHT TO BE MADE
ON GOVERNOR HUNT
P' HOENIX, ARIZ., Feb. 1. When
the members of the lower house
of the Arizona legislature meet at
the capitol next Monday morning for
the second special session called by
governor George Hunt. Sam B. Bradner..
of Cochise county, speaker during the
first two sessions, wiH calmly annex
the chair and call them to order.' A
motion to make H. H. Linney, of Ya
vapai, speaker of the house, will then
be made. It will be carried because
Llnney has the votes.
This is the. present program. That
is, it is all planned for Bradner to take
the chair. He and his friends are des-
peratcly hoping that something will
happen between now and Monday to
change the situation, but such a con
tingency appears very remote. The
Llnney supporters declare that they
are willing that a. test of strength
should come immediately. They want
to demonstrate right at the beginning
that they are strong enough to run. the
house during this session. '
Thus- will the fireworks start. . The

his "honor system" of prison reform.
Hunt will be accused of violating the
law. Instance after instance will be
cited by Callaghan to prove that the
governor has little regard for the
Itlstory of the Trouble.
At the opening of the regular ses

than a year ago. Michael G. Cunniff.
of Yavapai county, was elected presi-

called no one opposed the re-election
of Cunniff and Bradner. They were re
elected as a matter of course:
After adjournment of the first spe

When .it was decided that the prese-u

The administration leaders got to

manager of the administration, de
clared that Bradner-s resignation must

Arc Set Free During Parade.
Washington, D. C, Feb. 1. Scamper
ing rats and mice are counted on by
college students to stampede the suf
fraget parade here on March 3. The
unusual demand for rodents was ex
plained today wnen the plot was
learned. The collegians intend,' it has
developed, to post their forces along
the length of Pennsylvania avenue, and
at a prearranged signal dash into the
marching line with hand bags or par
cels containing the mice, shaking them
out into the street. They expect the
greatest display of hosiery and lingerie
ever seen. ,
When the plot was uncovered the
suffraget leaders were dismayed.

in the white enameled crib with his
chubby face peeping out from the
covers and his fat little hands crossed
over his breast it Is hard to think
that this rosy cheeked chap must go
through life as a helpless cripples His
smile is as attractive as his big
brown eyes which laugh up at one
from the depths of the crib. He is the
sunshine of the children's ward at the
Charity house. When the nurses are
tired from the crying of their sick
little patients they journey to Henry's
trundle bed shrine to renew their
faith in the light of that smile. His
wonderfuf disposition won him his af--j
fectionate name of Happy Hank and
he rewards those "who speak the "pet
name with an extra broad smile.
Last summer the heat of that sum
mer sun which shone In at the west
windows was almost too much even
for such a sweet temper as Henry's and
the association sent him off to Cloud
croft and the soothing odor of fresh
pine needles and the lullaby of the pine
tree tops. There in the baby sanato

came back down the mountain his
own smiling self. -Hank was sent off to
the day nursery in a little go cart
which had been donated to the Charity
and he laughed out loud at the fun
of the trip and the good times at

Such Is the Belief of Senator
Cummins in Discussing
Single Term Amendment.
WOULD REMOVE ALL
WASHINGTON. D. C Feb. 1.-
Senator Cummins opened the
debate today on the Works
proposed constitutional amendment to
limit a president to a single- six year
term, by proposing to permit voters to
amend the constitution directly with
out previous action of congress when
"a substantial majority" demanded such
a change He declared that with the
exception of George Washington, those
presidents who had served two terms
would have been better had they
served but one.
The senate passed the resolution, for
the six-year term by a vote of 47 to 2J.
Work Often "Neglected."
Senator Cummins declared a presi
dent's work was often "neglected" and
badly performed, because of attention
to efforts for renomination and re
election. "I believe a. president would dp ills
duty more efficiently if no influences
can aitect mm, ne said. 1 think the
Sherman an ti-trust law will bo more
thoroughly administered and more
energetically applied to all persons if
the president of the United States is
made free from all the influences which
these great interests may exert."

"He ought not to travel from one end
of the country to the other," he said,

way 3s a candidate for any any other
office. The duties of the presidnt's
office are sufficient to consume all his
time and strength and are Important
enough to merit all of his attention and

Government Fixes Rates.
"The United States government It
self is a party to European steamship
lines which fix rates between Europeai
points and New York," said R. P.
Schwerin before the house committee
investigating the shipping trust. The
government representing the Panama
railroad and the Panama steamship
line, sent a representative to tne an
nual conference meetings in London
when coffee rates were fixed.
He added that the government had
endeavored to force a rate agreement
between his line and the Hawaii-American
line, but that his line had de
clined to enter the agreement on the
ground that it was in violation of the
Sherman anti-trust law.
"Then the government," said Mr.
Schwerin. "to force the Hawaiian line
to maintain its rates threatened if it
cut down to put oh a competing line.
At present the Hawaiian line is operat
ing under tariffs fixed by the govern
ment through the Panama Steamship
Indifferent About Canal.
Mr. Schwerin said that when the
Panama canal was .-opened his line as
a railroad owned line would be forced
out of the trade. From talks with the
railroad men be believed they were in
different as to the provisions barring
railroad owned ships from the canal.
"The railroads don't care a snap about
it, he said.
