We understand that under the or
ganic act of Arizona and New Mexico,
tho Legislature is not allowed to enact
any special legislation, and that under
this clause our city charter, as amend
ed by the last Legislature, is null and
void and will be contested in the
courts. If this should bo done here,
it will effect the charters of Tucson,
Phetiix and Prescott, also, ss some
very able attorneys contend that the
act granting charter to any city or

particular. It would be well for our
citizens to look into this matter.
