WAR DECLARED. Legal Contests Over School Elections Begun. A Curious Combination of Circum stances Leaves the Osborne Dis trict Uncared For. . War. over the school election in two districts No. 5 and So. 35 has been for mally declared. . From district No. 5 there have come up two formidable documents; 'one is ajpetition for the ap pointment of Thomas K. Elvey as trustee to succeed J. D. Crabb. This ia signed by twenty-two residents of the district. The other is a notice of contest and a petition to declare vacant the office of trustee now held by "one J. D. Crabb by virtue ot a pretended election held etc." The notice presents several reasons why the election was "pretended" and irregular. It alleges that there was no inspector, no judges, no clerks, no any thing but a single individual who re ceived the ballots, counted them and in every way invested the occasion with a beautiful simplicity and informality. That's one reason why the contestants claim they were divested of a fair shake. Then again it was aseerted that there was an importation that day of persons w ho are not citizens of the United States, in the interest of Crabb. It is also charged that many persons voted presumably for Crabb who were childless and non-taxpaying and therefore ineligible. As a last count the contestants claim that the polls were kept open for bo brief a period that the real voters and opponents of "one Crabb," who were not fully informed were given no op portunity of a free and unbiased ex pression. - The trouble in district No. 35 was of the same general character and the remedy desired of precisely the same nature, the appointment by the super intendent of some -man who was not elected. Papers in other contests are expected hourly, so that whenever the door of the superintendent's office is opened, that official starts up in alarm and Clerk Pearce always wants to bet that another district has been heard from. A funnv thing has happened in the Osborne district. By the processes of statutory termination, resignation and emigration the district is without a trustee, lbat is, the term of one man expired, another weary of carking cares of office, resigned and another moved out of the district. To further com plicate matters, no election was held. THE CITY COUNCIL. Election Officers and Polling Places Selected. New Way to Make City Laws. Bezinnlngof a License Test ing Suit. A special mefttini of the city council was held last night for the purpose o' designating polling places and appoint ing officers for the approaching city election. The places and names select ed appear elsewhere in The Republican thiB morning. An ordinance was introduced and passed changing the method of pro cedure in city legislation.

Ainsworth as proprietor of the Lemon hotel and who has declined to pay the city license, the recorder wras directed to begin pro ceedings for its collection. The object of Mr. Ainsworth is to test the license ordinance so that the proceedingsin the recorder's courth may be considered only a necessary step to the final set tlement of the dispute. Instructions were also given to begin the removal of the sign posts erected by E, H. Win ters for designating the Btreets.

Resignation of the Prin cipal Accepted. His Successor to Be Chosen at the June Meeting. Progress of Work on the New Build ingThe School Section Is Considered. At a meeting of the Territorial Nor mal school board held at Tempe yester day the resignation of the principal, Prof. E. L. Storment, to take effect at the close of the present school year, was accepted. His successor was cot discussed and the matter will not be considered before tbe semi-annual meeting in June. A resolution was adopted by the board expressive of appreciation of Prof. Storment's ability, -industry, energy, education and of Jiis valuable services to the institution and of his high moral character. It also conveyed to him the best wishes of the board for his success in any future field of opera tion. The matter of school section No. 16, which has recently attained notoriety by being jumped and by becoming the basis of several law suits was taken up. The board is supposed to have so m au thority in this land and it bad been requested to exercise it. Members of the board, however, are not clear as to their rights. It was therefore resolved to submit the matter to the attorney general for an opinion as to, first, whether tbe board is legally authorized to lease the land or empowered to bring suits in ejectment against the persons now in possession. Should these in quiries be affirmatively answeredTthe opinion of the attorney general is further requested as to the advisability of bring ing such suits. Another thing considered was the unpaid claims held by various persons against the original contractor, Madi son for the eoni;rocuin'-of the new building. Though tha board's duty is clear since. it can recognize no other contractor, there is considerable con plication. The contract was sub-let to another contractor, French, who sub sequently gaye up the job, owine money for both labor and material. The con tract reverted to Madison- who again sub-let it to anothar contract or. Napier. Another creditor was created by the assignment by Madison of his claims to a mercantile firm at Tempe so that there is eternal jangle over it. The board decided to act strictly un der tbe contract by which it was to re tain 20 per cent of the contract price until adjustment had been made of any disputes that might arise or any unpaid bills. It therefore authorized the is suance of certificates to the extent of 80 per cent of tbe contract in payment f claims concerning which there i no dis pute. The reet will be paid as soon as tbe claimants can decide among them selves to whom it is to he paid. The work is now completed to the water table of the first story and the secretary was directed to advertise for bids for the completion of the wall and the construction of the rooi according to specifications now in the hands of Architect Heinlein. The advertise ment will be inserted in one' Coconino county paper, in one Yavapai county paper, in the Tempe News and in two Phoenix papers. The construction has so far cost $6389 and considering the extent of work per formed, the architect and all contractors agree that the territory has enjoyed a snap. All the members of the board were present but Territorial Treasurer Cole. THE INCOME TAX. Phcenix Residents Required to Make a Showing. Hon. C. M. Shannon, collector of internal revenue for the district of Arizona and New Mexico, arrived in the citv yesterday on official business. The official bceineES wes relaiive to the income tax and it is a mattpr of con jecture, though not serious conjecture, whether the government will gather enough money from his vitit to pay lhe expenses of it. ,Btit that., was none of Mr. Shannon's business'. He went about his work as seriously ss if he were operating in a city of' millionaires. As the law stood in the first place the citizens of Phcenix would have come within reach of the law, but that por tion of it imposing a tax upon incomes derived from rent having been knocked out by the supreme court, they are placed in a position not to care whether there is an income tax or not. Phoenix will contribute something, though, to the proceeds from an income tax, but it will be paid mostly by corporations. There are in the territory, Mr. Shan non save, ceveial firms aud parsons whom the law embraces.!
