shall Ambassador Calero, who has just resigned his position at
Washington as the representative of the Mexican goremment
there, says he was compelled to do so by the errors of his gov

nation that any failure or collapse of that government would
be but the signal for continued revolutionary activity, and even
the deepest-dyed revolutionist in Mexico must be near the
point where he is prepared to concede that Mexico has had
Merely to prove his theory of education by presenting a
concrete case. Professor Boris Sidis worked it out on his sona
William. As a result the youngster became one of the phe
nomenons of the age, attaining a mental stature at ten that
fairly astounded the educational world. The Professor writes:
"My William is now fourteen years of age, studies at
Harvard, has taken many advanced studies with credit, and
will graduate next year. He is quite tall, five feet seven and
one-half inches, and weighs one hundred and thirty-three
pounds He is physically far superior to the average boy of
his age. He is a strong, sturdy boy, with a complexion that
any girl might enyy. The boy is full of animal spirits, lively

Eugene Chafin ol Tucson is attending the Prohibition

be considered a good financial move by Arizonans.

Capt. Kelton Opposes
County Seat Removal
Capt 0 B Kelton was in Douglas
Monday Iroui his ranch home at Kel
ton in the Sulphur Springs valley.
In speaking about the next session
ol tbe legislature Mr Kel on eaid to
an International reporter: "I have
no idea what Governor Hunt will in
clude in bis cal1. lam inclined lo
believe he will issue a general call,
which will enable us to lake up any
matter that we may see fit "
As to the speakership, Mr Kelton
said: "I have no more idea who will
be the rpeaker than you bare II the
senate re-elects CunmrT as president,
I believe Brsdner will be re elected
as speaker. Personally! believe the
old othcers should hold over, as this
ia a special session en8 not tbe open
ing of a new sefsion.
"In regard to the proposed county
seat removal bill, I am strongly oc
posed lo it lor several reasons. In
tbe first place . county division is sure
to come in Cochise County sooner or
later and why not have it now? My
idea Is to divide the county in three
parte and then let each division settle
tbe question of the location of tbe
county seat for itself . It is true that
tbi strength of the county would be
greatly reduced, but tbat must come
some time anybow. I think tbe
lines proposed by your chamber of
commerce last fall is about tbe beet
that can be done and will divide the
taxable property as equally as possi
ble I favor that plan."
In adopting tbe woman suffrage
amendment to the Constitution tbe
people cf Arizona brought down op
on themselves one blessing which
could not then be foreseen, tbe giving
to this state a more conspicioua place
on the map of the world than it would
otherwise have had.
Tbe conprees of tbe International
Woman Suffrage Alliance which will
meet at Rudapest next June will i
elude I we've delegates from the United
States. They will ccme only from
those states which have adopted
eqnal suffrage, to that Ar'zona will
have representation. Many o tbe
leading suffragettes of tbe state have
requested Governor Hunt, who has
the designation of the delegate from
this state to appoint Mrs Frances W,
Munds, chairman of the Arizona
Equal Suffrage Central Committee,
and he has done so.

Should Not Furnish
Convicts With Liquor
"Within two years every state in
the union will be working convicts on
its roads; but il the system is con
tinned here in Arizona, some law
must be passed making it a felony to
give or sell a prisoner liquor."
This statement was made by
Governor George Hunt in discussing
the escape of George TuWDBley and
John CIdham from the Higley road
camp last Friday nigbt, alter Towns
ley bad made a drunken attack upon
"Both Townsley and Oldbam wera
?ood men , good workers on tbe road
till someone supplied tbem witb
whisky," continued tbe govercor.
" Hsd not some misguided or malic
ious person given them whisky, they
would have served out tbeir sentence,
less time off for gocd behavior and
work on the highways; and might
have become good citizens.
" This is not the first trouble ol tha
kind that we htve bad. It should be
made a penal offense for anyone to
furnish a convict with intoxicaoing
liquor. I understand that several
state bavs sueh a law."
Cochise officers are on tbe lookout

was convicted in this connty, is fami

this, should tbe two come this way
