Fleming, Terri torial Treasurer, Presents His Resigna tion to the Governor. Increasing Pressure of Private Affairs the Reason. The Resignation Accepted bv the Governor who will Probably Fill the Vacancy Today. Territorial Treasurer James A. Flem ing yesterday tendered his resignation in the following communication which was received at the office of the governor late in the afternoon : Office of Territorial Treasurer, ) Phienix, Ariz., June 6th, lS'Jl. i To Hon. L. C. Hughes. Governor: Dear Sir I herewith tender my resignation as territorial treasurer of the Territory of Ari zona Owing to my personal business affairs re quiring my undivided time and attention, I feel as if J could not in justice to myself and the territory further continue to hold the posi tion of treasurer. I wish to thank you for the kindness you have shown me from time to lime. From my position as treasurer I have been able lo observe that your administration as governor of the territory of Arizona has been one of strict honesty and economy; not one cent has been misappropriated, while thou sands of dollars are being saved. I say it without fear of contradiction that no governor ever entered upon his duties as gov ernor of any territory who had so much to con tend with to bring about leforms as you have and no governor ever brought about such grati fying results to the taxpayers as you are now doing. Yours respectfully, JAMBS A. FLEMING, Territorial Treasurer. Though it was known that the rap idly increasing business of the Phoenix National bank and the many and im portant private affairs of the treasurer levied heavy contributions upon him his resignation was received with mingled surprise and regret. The governor endeavored to dissuade him from his purpose without effect and last night reluctantly accepted the resignation in a letter to Mr. Fleming expressing his regret at a severance of their official relation and an apprecia ation of the invaluable services which the treasurer bad rendered during the more than a year in which he has eon trolled the territorial funds. Who his successor maybe is yet a subject of conjecture, but as Mr. Flem ing desires to be relieved at once of the burdens of the office it ia possible that an appointment will be made today. The retiring territorial treasurer took charge of the office immediately upon the accession of Governor Hughes. The beginning of the financial strin gency and the consequent withdrawal of propositions from brokers to take the funding bonds presented a some what perplexing problem to the new administration. The value of the ser vices of bo thorough a financier as Mr. Fleming became apparent and he pro ceeded with an energy which soon clearel the situation of its embar rassing entanglements. He has been a powerful aid to the administration in the sweeping re trenchments which have been made in the management of the penitentiary and the asylum and which have been effected in such a manner is to not only not imDair the efficiency of those insti tutions but on the contrary to greatly increase it. In all respects the funds of the terri tory have been managed by Mr. Flem ing with the same care as that which marks the conduct of his private affairs. PERSONAL. F. J.
