THE LAW ENDORSED.
Editor Guardian: To tho
tho tax payer, tho now classification
and salary bill, enacted by
tho last legislature of Arizona, has
very many features to recommend
it, and not leastamong thoso things
is tho feature that puts tho compensation
of officers on a basis
somewhat liko that which individuals
in pursuits can obtain
for services very liko thoso
rendered by tho officers affected by
It contains an clement of justice
to tho public which has not heretofore
entered into tho laws regulating
official compensation. In
tho case of this county it was not
known until within a very short
timo prior to tho lato election that
Graham county was or would bo
a first class county, and therefore
tho compensation of tho officials
raised accordingly. By what
might appropriately bo termed an
accident it wa found that there
were by tho returns of tho registering
officers over fifteen hundred
qualified voters in the county, and
tho officers suddenly becamo entitled
to tho increased pay attached
to a first class county for doing
tho business, less in volume than
former years, but such was then
tho law and it was accepted.
However all things contained tho
principlo by which inequalities aro
removed, and extremes aro made
to meet, and tho now classification
law has adjusted tho harsh injustice
which had fallen on tho property
of the county by not only taking
into consideration these things but
has gono further and seems to have
taken into consideration tho great
depression of business of all kinds
and to have adjusted tho compensation
of county officers to something
like tho pay which would bo en
titled commensurate lor Iiko sorv
ices in their character,
and in doing so have relieved tho
tax payers of a . very considerable
burden and started tho counties,
debt ridden liko Graham, towards
the point whero thoy may catch
up with their obligations.
Officers may say, and with some
seeming fairness too, that, at tho
time of their election tho salaries
of their several offices, wore then
5'xcd and that in contemplation of
such hxed salaries they "accepted"
tho offices and that to chango such
salaries under such circumstances
after their election is a mattor of
bad iaith towards them. Such an
argumont overlooks tho fact that
tho incumbent of an offico does not
hold it by contract and that it is
entirely within tho purviow of tho
powers of tho legislature not only
to reduco tho salary but to lcgislato
any ono or all oflicors out of office.
Such arguments also, over look another
very vital matter and that is
that in tho legislature, for the time
beingr, is lodged all tho powers of
tho people, and that its action except
so far as it is restrained by
tho organic law is tho highest representative
of omnipotence among
This classificaton law has met
tho demand on tho part of tho
who largely out number tho
offico holders, of a much needed reform,
and so far no voico of tho
people has been raised against' it,
while tho cry from tho offico holders
is almost univorsal that there
aro such latent and insurmountable
irregularities in tho inception
and passago of tho law through the
different stages required that it is
incapable of enforcement, and that
it only has to bo called in question
in tho courts in order to subject
tho people to the demands of those
whoso "feed" has been regulated at
tho people's expense.
Tho state is composed of threo
co-ordinate branches, tho Executive,
Legislative and Judicial, each
with their appropriate functions.
When tho legislative has oxprcssed
its action and the same has received
tho approval of tho Executive, tho
ovidenco of such joint action is tho
enrolled law in tho archives of tho
offico of tho Secretary of tho Ter
ritory, and it becomes tho duty of
tho Judicial to enforco tho law, not
to make it, though in somo states
it has been hold that tho courts
'can go behind tho records" to see
that the other co-ordinate branches
of tho government have done their
duty, while tho bettor view seems
to bo that tho highest evidence of
such action is the enrolled and ap
proved law as it appears in the
Secretary's offico, signed by tho
presiding officers of tho respectivo
house ana approved by tho Governor.
, Tho pcoplo at largo will
feel that thoy aro powerless if it
should be that this law, so beneficial
to all, should tail at tho instance
of not over fifty people at most.
If tho Board of Supervisors were
sincero in thoir protensions, why
did thoy not at their recent meeting
rocognizo tho County Eecordcr
as their Clerk, as tho Classification
Law makes him Clerk of tho Board,
and especially when thoy kenw
that tho Eecordcr on April 22n had
demanded possession of tho records
of tho Board of Supervisors offico.

Farmers Head And Consider.
Pcmit mo onco more to treat upon
a subject of vital importance to
tho people of this valloy, and that
subject is co-operation.
During tho last twelvo months
tho cry of "hard times," has been
heard through our land, and echoed
from abroad, and ono of tho complaints
has been capital oppressing
labor, and many wise heads have
given vent to their feelings by saying
that co-operation is tho only
remedy for the evils that now exist.
Tho lesson before tho nation today
has proven that man will oppress
his fellow man, ovon unto
starvation. And in tho languago
of tho poet, "man's in humanity to
man makes countless thousands
mourn." Such conditions as theso
exist today, in our boasted "land
of liberty", have caused
companies to spring up, all
having their aim to protect themselves
from tho fierco and inhuman
oppressions of tho power of wealth.
Tho farmers and laboring classes
havo been prompted to a
organization in this valley.
Our efforts this far havo been to
erect a flour mill to grind our grain
that wo may not bo compelled to
pay about ono third of tho value
of our grain to got tho other two
thirds ground. It is our
to extend the benefits of this organization,
until every farmer, and
laborer shall bo protected in that
which ho has to buy.
Through tho establishment of the
Graham Guardian many hundreds
of dollars aro and can bo saved to
tho tax payers of this county.
This institution was bitterly opposed,
very much liko tho opposition
that is now brought against
tho present co-operative movement,
but tho good that has resulted
through tho establishment of tho
Guardian is apparent to all.
If tho people allow this effort to
fail for want of support, then remember
you havo gpt no civil
officer to apprehend the hand of extortion.
Your only means of staying
its grasp, is in co-operation.
Will you allow your wives and
your children to do without many of
tno common necessities ot liter and
thus afflict tho innocent becauso
you havo failed to mako a feeblo
effort to savo to y6ursdlves tho
benofits of your own labors.-
Therefore, in lieu of these things,
wo call upon all good citizens,
through tho valloy to meet with us
in Safford on Saturday tho first day
of June, A. D. 1895, at tho Safford
school houso at 1 o'clock, P. M. to
further complete this co-operative
organization, and to elect a board of
directors lor the ensueing year,
and to doviso ways and means
hold the products of the farm
to a fair price.
Snakes at Home Inside a Coir.

story is taken from an eastern ox-change:

Ho said that days ago a valuablo
cow belonging to tho family was
missing, and that yesterday tho animal
was found dead, lying among
tho cranberry bushes in tho swamp.
A veterinary surgeon happened
along about that time and said ho
had a curiosity to know tho cause
of tho animal's death. He proceeded
to hold a post-mortem on tho
body. While ho was at work a
four-foot black snako crawled from
tho mouth of tho dead cow and succeeded
in escaping in tho underbrush.
The doctor was considcraly starts
led, but he proceeded with his work
and when ho had reached tho stomach
ho was horrified to find that it
was fairly alivo with littlo black
snakes from six to eight inches in
length. of tho reptiles
wore slaughtered and a few escap

mother snako in some manner
crawled into the interior of tho
cow while she was eating and that
tho littlo snakes, Avhich aro known
to find rcfugo in tho interior of the
old one, followed.
