Railroads Fight Wood Bill
'The railroads of Arizona are bitterly
opposed to senator Homer Wood's bill
to require them to incorporate under
the laws of this state and maintain
general offices within its borders.
Senator Wood's prime reason . for
introducing this bill is to keep the
general office of the S. F. P. & p. and
the Arizona & California in Prescott.
In all probability the offices will re
main there anyway, whether the bill
passes er not Orders to that effect
are understood to have been Issued.
For a time, however, Prescott was in
much fear that she would lose one of
her principal assets.
Railroad men claim that the bill is
extremely unjust. They point to the
Bl Paso & Southwestern, the Arizona
& California and the Arizona & New
Mexico lines that might be vitally af
fected, jkach of these has tracks In
two or more states. Were a law sim
ilar to that proposed by Wood In effect
in each state, those roads would have
to have several sets of general offices.
The Arizona & New Mexico, they say,
might not be able to stand the ex
pense and would cease operations.
Flat denial of the charges, made in
the senate last Saturday, that he is
neglecting the state's business for his
