(UNION j -fe-Ju A BCL THOEXIX, ARIZONA, FEB. 20, 1909. HOUSE BILL NO. 59. The unobstructed rassage of the Railway Commission bill through the house yesterday failed to disclose any of the railroad opposition to the measure of which we had heard so much. This opposition was largely Imaginary, conjured up .for the most part by demagogues who sought to Impress upon the people the gigantic nature of the task that was under taken in their behalf. Apparently, the railroad's have be trayed no interest whatever in the course of House Bill No. 59; certain ly none in the legislature or the lob bies, and, so far as we know, none outside. We do not mean to say that the bill has been wholly supported by dema gogues. We have in mind no mem ber to whom that word applies. We believe that most of them are of the honest opinion that the bill, ii" enacted into a law, will be of service, and we also think that the merchants and shippers who are behind it be lieve that it will result in an im provement of conditions. That it would transfer the burden and ex pense of the merchant shippers" or ganizations to the territory, as has been pointed out, is that much in its behalf. The Republican has never believed that a railway commission, that i?, such a body as is usually meant by a commission, could be of great ser vice in the territory, though the use fulness of a regularly organized body, either of private citizens or a body established by law for the purpose of representing shipper and acting as an intermediary between shippers and the interstate commerce commission,, can become beneficial. We are of the opinion that the powers designed to be conferred upon the Arizona Railway Commission are greater than the Commission would find it could exercise. That, how ever, would not prevent the Commis sion from performing the functions of an intermediary or a representative. It has been stated that this bill has been drawn in accordance with sug gestions received from Interstate Commerce Commissioner Lane. The comparatively brief, letter from the commissioner could hardly have fur nished an outline for such a compre hensive and varied measure as House Bill 59, and we cam.ot believe that the commissioner understood that the vesting of a territorial commission with any form of judicial authority was contemplated. But whether or nut the territorial commission should ever attempt to exercise such authority, that would nut prevent the exercise of such other power as would be undisputed and froi; which great god ough to re MR. ST. CHARLES SACRIFICE. Whatever opinion may be enter tained with respect to prohibition leg islation, the act of Councilman St. Charles yesterday in voting for the local option bill must be regarded by both sides as the bravest act per formed in an Arizona legislature in recent years. There was no other member on either side who was not better able to afford the sacrifice he was mak ing. The casual spectator could have had no full conception of it. It is one thing to voice the will of one's constituejits and another to certainly incur their displeasure. It is one thing to sit in the gallery and ap plaud a champion and another for the champion to know that the price of that applause is the wreck of his worldly prospects. Mr. St. Charles had not an encour aging word from even those of his constituents who are prohibitionists. The few who wrote him urging him to stand up bravely were themselves lying down cowardly,' begging in the same letters that their names be not made public Those letters must have made his task harder; they must have tempted him to throw the whole local option business overboard. The average man would have regarded them as a suffi cient excuse for doing so. We trust that when he goes back to his home his neighbors, however just they may believe their cause of resentment to be, will find it over come by pride at having in their midst a man who is not afraid. ' sist Having abolished gambling and put the rollers under the liquor business, It would be almost, adding insult to injury to admit women to the ballot box when there is nothing left to vote for. It would be like inviting an unwelcome guest to a feast after the viands have all been devoured and the dishes put away. Our local option friends should not, in the flush of victory, press forward with too great rapidity. There is still the vote of the people, and peo ple do not like to be hurried. If the friends of the railway bill would leave Wags tied up at home, they would find that they could get somewhere much faster. The people of Eastern Graham have chosen a good name for the child, whether It shall ever be born or not. It begins to look as if we had been' jockeyed out of a place in the state hood race. But there will be another race. LOCAL OPTION BILL UP TO THE (Continued from Page One) the approval of the application o'f the regents of the university for participa tion in the Carnegie Foundation Fund, which had ben laid over for a day. The resolution was passed and sent to the house. The only other business was the introduction of the woman suf frage bill. THE LIGHTER MOOD Which Prevailed in the House During the Afternoon. The house did not convene until 2 o'clock. ' The first business was the presentation of a remonstrance by a dentists' organization against any tin kering of the law regulating the prac tice of dentistry. Mr. DeSouza's bill extending the powers of the district court in relation to delinquent children was passed. Mr. Webb's bill, for the establishing of section and quarter section corners, called out considerable debate and se rious opposition. The bill provides that where a corner has been undis turbed for a period of three years it shall bo an unchangeable corner. In speaking to the bill he referred to in stances in which .great injustice . had been done after the establishment of a corner which had been accented by all the parties interested, and which, after a part of the property had passed into other hands, had been changed by a subsequent survey. The main objec tion to the bill was raised by Mr. Moore, who found that it interfered with the statute of limitations. The bill was passed by a vote of 14 to 1". Mr. Bailey's bill, providing that all executions hereatfer, except in the cases of persons already condemned, shall take ilace in the territorial prison, was passed without debate or opposition. Mr. Peterson was excused from voting on the ground that he was opposed to capital punishment. Tlie bill limiti..g the remuneration of clerks of district courts was passed by a vote of 15 to 8, Mr. Peterson voting with the republicans. The bill had undergone some changes in the judi ciary committee. It does not establish salaries but allows clerks of courts to retain fees as follows: ("Irks in coun ties of the first class, to the amount of $2,400; in counties of the second class, $1,500; in counties of the third class, $1,200; in cqunties of the fourth, fifth and sixth classes, $1,000. There can be no other remuneration. A deputy clerk at a salary of not more than $100 a month may be employed on a certifi cate by the judge of the court that one Is neede.d and the supervisors of the county may employ a second deputy on a certification by the judge, his salary not to exceed J7 5a month. Mr. Morris memorial to congress, asking for fixed regulation of he for est reserve, was passed. The session for the day closed in a burst of merriment, with the commit tee of the whole in consideration of Mr. Hogwood's bill amending the mar riage and divorce laws so that if either party has been insane for ten years and the. insanity has then been pro nounced incurable, that shall be a cause for divorce. The bill had been unfavorable rec ommended by the judiciary committee, and motion to indefinitely postpone it was pending when Mr. Hogwood se cured its commitment to the whole committee. Mr. Hightower was called to the chair. Mr. Hogwood. being questioned, admitted that the measure was in the nature of a relief bill and that one man was waiting somewhere to avail himself of it. Amendments began to pour in. One member wanted to make the period of insanity twenty years; another fifteen and still another fifty years. Mr. Sutter offered an amendment to another section of the law which pro vides that if the husband has not con tributed to the support of his wife for three years, that shall be a cause for divorce. Mr. Sutter desired the amend ment to be that if the wife did not contribute to the support of the hus band for that time he might get a di- Drives Them Out of the House to Die Stearns' Electric Rat and Roach Paste is sure death to rats, mice, roaches, etc ; i oz. box J5o. : 16 oz. box Sl.00.

Mr. Pace took a more serious view of it. He said that If a man had a wife in the Insane asylum and the thought of marrying entered his head he ought to be run out of the com munity. (Applause from the gallery.) Then other gentlemen said the same thing over again in the hope of win ning applause. The bill was dead of laughter before the committee arose. An adjournment was. taken until 10 o'clclock this morning. The council will meet at the same time. I Krouskop FIVE JOINTS GROCERY The Man Who Retails Groceries at Wholesale Prices.
