At the conclusion of. Bailey's speech
Ashurst immediately Secured recogni
tion, warmly defending Hearst and
speaking in favor of the operation of
the initiative and referendum in Ari
zona. The people began to file out of the
galleriek and most of the representa

for four hours also, retired The pre-.

he did not want order. .
"The chair will restore order
whether the senator from Arizona de
sires it or not," snapped Mr. Galling
er, who was presiding.
This action of Ashurst is haranguing
a dispersing audience in the United
States senate is typical of the man.
His flowery line of talk will not hold

In a recent issue of The Examiner
the population of Son Diego was, in
cidentally, mentioned as being about
80,000. The new estimate, is based
upon the calculations of Hugo Grosser,
statistician, as published in the San
Diego Survey and Exposition News.
Mr. Grosser finds that the building
operations, allowing a per capita of
'$115 the highest in the United States
indicate a population of 80,482; the
Dumber of water-taps, allowing 7.7S
individuals to each meter, whereas
the standard is 6.5, a population of
80,899; the ratio of persons to each
gas- meter, placing the estimate twen
ty per cent below the lowest used in
any other part of the country, a popu
lation of . 80,310; the ratio of individu
als to each electric light meter, plac
ing the estimate twenty-five per cent,
below the lowest used elsewhere, a
population of 80,500; the number of
telephones, granting a . reduction of
twenty per cent, below the standard,
a. population of 80,568. .
. From these estimates, Mr Grosser
deduces the conclusion that the popu
lation of San Diego is not less than
WOMEN SHOW DISCRIMINATION
Despite the fact that Arizona has
allowed the better and fairer sex to
cast a vote has caused some publica
tions of the Southwest, particularly
the El Paso Times, to throw, fit after
fit over the hoop-skirted politics of
this state, the first election held under
the new system, that at Prescott, fails
to show basis for the fears that have
been expressed. In fact, the women
showed themselves to be discrim
inating in their balloting. The only
woman candidate in the field was.
beaten' by'a2 overwhelming majority.
One Republican, the only one running,
was elected, whiie the rest of the city
ticket is made up of Democrats. This
shows conclusively that the women
are not voting blindly. They are not
following the precepts of husbands or
fathers, but are thinking for them
selves. Of the .total of 920 votes cast, 265
were by women.
, The, equal suffrage amendment has
placed a new element in Arizona poli
tics which will have to be reckoned
with in the future. Just how it will
vote none can say. The Examiner is
willing to declare positively, however,
that the women, if they continue to
show suh good sense and discrimina
tion in their future balloting as in
this, the first chance offered, will work

You may boast of lovely womankind
and sing aloud her praise,
And remark her cheery manner and

But a woman is a woman hard to

She can do a dozen women's work and

But she can't be optimistic in a faded

She will soothe your wounded feelings
and assuage your sudden fright
When a flock of ghostly hutcher bills

She may be as hold and fearless ar
a lion full of roar
When your purse is like a fritter and
and the wolf is at the door;
Still, she can't endure the torture of
that faded summer hat
When the frost is on1 the window and
the rent is on the flat!
Yea, the ways of subtle woman arc
unsearchable and strange,
And her sunny disposition is suscepti

She can be as sad and silent, as a
doughnut on a plate;
Sigh and seek her quiet chamber in a

TUCSON, Jan. 13. Not all high
school students in the state are yel

scholarship is paid, that the student'?
