The recall of public officials will
come up for a. fight in the Texas
legislature, when a Joint resolution in
troduced by representatives Rogers and
Parks passes through the hands of the
committee. The proposed amendment
provides for a recall election on the
petition of eight percent of the number
of voters who voted for such public of
ficial in the regular election. Not only
does the proposed measure provide for
the recall of elective officials, but it
further stipulates that appointive offi
cials may be recalled from office, if a
majority of the people so desire. Ac
cording to the reading of this amend

number of voters who voted in the elec

tute a recall.
The Rogers recall bill stipulates that
should a public ofieiaL after the filing
of a recall election petition, desire to

Washington, D. C Feb. 1.-
president-elect has already let It be
known he will pick his cabinet from
among the progressive Democrats ana
that he wants the men about .him
on whom he will rely for counsel to
be nrotrressive Democrats.
It is asserted by some of the sena
tors that Mr. Wilson- plans to wipe
the slate March 4 and start "on an
even basis with all the Democrats in
congress. That is, he will start on
the presumption that the Democrats
in congress are going to stand by the

Itis said, moreover, that Mr. W1I-
son expects it will be clearly devel-
oped in the tariff session, in the con
sideration of tariff and such other
questions as eome up then, about how
the lines are lying in congress, es
pecially among the Democrats.
It is understood Mr. Wilson will
adopt the attitude of the man from
Missouri and insist on being shown,
but at the same time that he is will
ing to give every Democrat in con
gress a chance to prove that he means
the things he professes.
With the election of John K. Shields
as United States senator from Tenn
esee, the Democrats are assured of 48
votes, or one-half of the total votes in
the senate, after March 4. With the
vote of vice president Marshall to break
ties, the Democrats are now abso
lutely sure of control of the next sen
ate. Deadlocks in state legislatures that
will prevent the election .of United
States senators probably will fix the
margin of Democratic control in the
next senate. Each deadlocked legis

Mr. Wilson since the gubernatorial

November to become clerk of the state

position to which he was appointed by

Tumulty has been in charge of the
governor's correspondence since elec

he had felt able to accept the secretary

New Mexico legislature planned to
wrest from New Jersey the honor of

his state had not acted sooner. The

from a southern California member,

New Taxation Methods.
Early in the present session of the
legislature the Arizona tax commission
will recommend a law providing for
state, city and county budgets.
The purpose of this law is to make
a radical change In present methods of
assessing taxes. Every taxpayer will
have an opportunity, before a tax levy
is made, to protest against the manner
in which his money is to be spent.
Prior to making a levy, each board
of county supervisors and each city or
town council will be required to draw
up a budget containing each item cf
expenditure contemplated for the on
auinar vr This budset must be
printed in some newspaper of general
After the printing of the budget,
there will he ample time for the tax
payers to appear before the councils or
supervisors and protest against any
items that do not moat with their ap
proval. If they think that salaries are
too high or that too much monty is to
be spent on roads, they will have the
privilege of protesting.
The state budget will be drawn by
the legislature itself. Those wishing
to protest against tbe state budget or
any part of it must appear before the
