Governor of Arizona, Phoenix, Ariz.. Dear Sit: I have your of August ."th submitted through Mr. Sims K y, pri vate secretary, in which the qaeolkm is taised whether there should be a sepa late ballot relative to the question of Joint statehood, or whether the ques tion to be submitted to the qualified electors should te included 'n, and made a part of the regular official bal lot. .section 2; of the Knabling Act, pro vides that at the general ejection to be lo id on the tlth day of ..November, 1906, all the electors. of the territories of New Mexico and Arizona, raspeii.iv.dy, qual ified to vote at rut h election, are au thorized to vote for and choose del crates to 'orm a con veiitior. lor sail t. i ritori. s; that at said general elec tion, and on the Pame ballots on which the names of candidates to the conven is tion aforesaid are printed, theie shall; be submitted to said qualified electors ! of eac .'i of the said territories, a ques- j tion which shall be stated on the bal- I lot in Fubstaiice and form, as fol lows: Yes. No. "Shall Arizona and New Mexico he united to form on state?" It is further provided in said para graph 24 that such election lifr dele gates shall be conducted, and the cer tificates of such persons elected to such convention issue, as far an may be. in the same manner as Is prescribed by the laws of said territories, re spectively, regulating elections therein of members of the legislature. It will thus be seen that the act of congress ilseif docs not in terras pro vide that the names of the candidates to the constitutional convention and the question as to statehood shall be printed upon regular official ballots upon which the names of all candidatts are to be printed, neither does it de termine whether separate ballots for these purposes shall be provided. It is provided, however, that such election for delegates shall be conducted, and the returns made, and the certificates of persons elected issued, etc., as near as may be, in the same manner as is prescribed by the laws of said ter ritories, respectively, regulating elec tions therein of members of the leg islature. We may therefore, look to the provisions of our own statutes, in so far as they may aid the Act of con gress referred to. Said act, however, express,' provides that the mures of the candidates to Un constitutional convention, and the question whether the two territories shall be i::iited to form one state, shall be sub: :itted on the public ballot. It contains no limitation as to what else, if anything, the ballot may contain, but leaves that to be controlled by the lawa of the territories. That is, it leaves THE ARIZONA IiEl U15Ij1CAX SATUKDAY MORNING SEPTEMBER 1, fij 1 us free to follow the laws of Arizona as to whether the names of the candi dates to the Constitutional convention, and the question aforesaid, shall b-; submitted upon a separate ballot, or whether they shall be submitted upon the regular official ballot, containing Ihe names of all candidates to be voted for at said general eh ction including members of the legislature. Paragraph 2327 (section ati) Tiovised Statutes of Arizona, 1001, provides that "Whenever a question is to be sub mitted to the people r the territory for a popular vote, the secretary of the territory shall duly certify the . line to each county board of supervisors of the territory, not less than twenty-five days before the election, and the hoard of supervisors of each county shall in clude the proposition or question to be submitted in the ballot to be used on election day." The "badot" referred to is the regu lar official ballot. In view of this, it is clear that the statehood question being one that is to be submitted to the people of the territory for a popular vote, must be submitted on the regular official ballot, and inasmuch as the act of congress provides that the names of the candidates to the consti tutional convention must be submitted upon the same ballot thai the question c I' statehood is submitted, it follows that there must be but one ballot, and that all of these matters must be sub mitted to the people in manner and form as provided hv law upon this bal lot. I advise; therefore that the question to be submitted to the people of the territory relating to statehood, as pro vided by said act of congress, be duly certified by the secretary of the- terri tory to each county board of supervis oi s not less than twenty-five days be fore election, and that said supervisors be also advised that such question, as we!l as the names of candidates to the constitutional convention, be submit il fill Jut CZJ tZJ r. n- f f Li Hi ted upon the regular official ballot. Very respectfully yours, K. S. CLARK. Attorney General. o INFORMATION WANTED BY ARIZONA VOIERS Should Be Enlightened Concerning Finances of Two Territories. Attorney General K. S. Clark re turned Thursday from an official visit to the northern counties of the terri tory, says the Journal-Miner. Speak ing of the joint statehood sentiment in the north, the attorney general said: "During my visit to the northern counties I met and conversed with a great many people who are mistaken in many facts relative to joint state hood and have assumed an attitude fa vorable to it. "For instance," he said, "many were much surprised to learn that the total assessed valuation of all property in the territory of Arizona exceeded that of New Mexico by over $10.0uo,0J, most of them believing that the New Mex ico valuation exceeded that of Arizona. "Few of them knew that the terri toial tax rate of New Mexico is more than double that of Arizona. ' Hardly any of them realize that the average county tax rate of New Mexico is much higher than the average county lax rate of this territory, and very few of tiiv'in appear to be aware of the fact that while the territorial indebtedness of this territory is largely made up of tha indebtedness of the several counties which has been funded into territorial bonds, and which is included in our territorial debt, there is a heavy coun n 1 1 n n ET-a j ij tJ ty indebtedness in New Mexico in ad dition to the. territorial debt." "There is also outstanding in New Mexico a karge issue of so-called militia warrants, exceeding, as is reliably re ported, over $l,00o.mio. This being the case, it of course goes without saying that should New Mexico and Arizona ever adopt joint statehood the tirst act of the new state legislature would be to fund the enormous county and militia warrant indebtedness as the representation of new Mexico in the legislature would far exceed that of Arizona. Arizona would be thereby compelled to pay a very substantial share of New Mexico's debts ln addi tion to her own. "Very few people in the north appear to be awaie that although New Mex ico's population is nearly double that of Arizona, that New Mexico expends muc h less money annually in her public schools than this territory. Under joint statehood it is easily seen that if the New Mexico schools are to be graded up to the present standard of our schools that this teri itory would be compelled to pay a heavy tax for the maintenance of New Mexico's schools. "When I made these statements to some of the citizens they were sur prised. In my opinion there should be a comparative statement compiled from the official records of both territories by the joint statehood committee show ing the, true fac ts with relation to the two territories and a copy of the same placed in the hands of every voter in the territory. "It only requires a consideration of the facts to convince any resident o Arizona that joint statehood would be disastrous to this territory. No argu ment is required. The facts are suf ficient and r.o Arizonian can consider them w ithout becoming unalterably op posed to joint statehood."

I 1EMPE CONVENTION PROMISES TROUBLE The Brethren Are All Loaded Hair Trigger Action. tor When The Republican yesterday morning laid bare the secret thoughts, hopes and ambitions of certain of the local democracy, it was not supposed that any real harm would be done, and of coutse none was intended. The Republican is for peace, always, even among the democrats, and proposes to let them have it even if it has to make liiem fight for it. The chief trouble at the democratic convention in Tempe today, it is feared, will be between Chairman Smith of the resolutions committee and Neri Osborn. leader of the minority o" the commit tee. No reference was made in yester day's issue to the casus belli. In fact, it had not then been made public, but yesterday's events threw new light on me subject. It is well known that f halt man Smith is a great admirer of Governor Kibbey and it was learned yesterday that he proposed to have him c-ndoised by the convention. Mr. Os born on the other hand insists that a democratic convention ought not to en dorse a republican, even if he were per fect, and forthwith proceeds to receive a telegram from liisbee, announcing i he probability of CJovernor Kibbey making the race for congress on the re publican ticket. The governor of course? denies the possibility of his candidacy, but Mr. osborn puts no faith in the denial. 11 would rather tie himself up to an idea lie originated himself, because he Knows just what it is worth.
