H COUNTY IS GREENLEE TheName Agreed Upon After a Fierce Wrangle THE SEGREGATION BILL Swept Through the Assem bly Like a Prairie Fire. The Passage of the Rail road Classification and Fare Bill by the Council. Its name is Greenlee, the new county that was out off from Graham yester day, under the agreement which had been reached the day before between the Hill folk and the reluctant Valley folk. The terms of the agreemnt had been put into an amendment offered by Mr. Hampton f the council to the division bill which had been introduced by Mr. Finley. It was ruled that the amendments could not be attached in time to bring the bill to action yester day, and late in the day a new bill covering the agreement was brought into the house. Instead of Lincoln, it christened the new county Greenlee, after old Mace Greenlee, the first prospector who ever explored that country and after whom that rich mining district has long been called. The name was satisfactory to the jenple of both factions, but when it was brought before the 'council, it did not please Councilman O'Neill or the republican members of the council, who had heard about Lincoln county so much that they haI got used to the name and would have no other. A filibuster over it was instituted and call after call of the house was demanded until long after dark: Final ly the name was accepted and the bill was passed. As has been stated, it will not become effective until Janu ary 1, 1911, but the officers of the new county will be chosen at the next gen eral election. The new county will as sume all the indebtedness of Graham county $146,000. The amended bill al so gives Greenlee county a little less area than the first bill contemplated. House Bill No. 1. The first bill introduced into the house in the present session was made ready yesterday to be sent to the gov ernor. It was Bailey's primary elec tion bill, a most comprehensive meas ure. Both houses long after dark yester day adjourned over today to accept the invitation of the Phoenix Real Es tate Board to go on an excursion to Granite Reef. The adjournment of the house car ries it over until Monday afternoon at 1 o'clock. The council will reconvene in the morning at 10. WENT WITH A WHIRL, The Segregation Local Opton Bill Through the House. The expected happened yesterday, but in an unexpected manner. House bill 109, for the segregation of towns and counties, in effect repealing the Pace local option bill, was passed By the assembly within four days after its introduction, by the decisive vote of 16 to 7. It had been plain from the beginning that there had been a re versal of sentiment in the assembly on this subject, and especially on the juestion of a segregation of cities and towns In local option elections, but it w as not supposed that the revulsion of sentiment had been so great that the Hightower bill could be advanced un der a suspension of the rules. This bill was included among those reported from the judiciary commit tee a little before noon, but there was Vio accompanying recommendation. Mr. Sutter at once moved a suspen sion of the rules, and the placing of the bill on final passage. The roll call disclosed a failure of the motion, but before the announcement of the result. Speaker Webb directed his vote to be changed to 'aye." The bill was read the third time, and the first de bate on the prohibition question en sued. The Pace bill had, curiously, passed so suddenly under the pressure .-f its opponents that its friends were denied the privilege of oratory. Mr. Doan attacked the Hightower bill as an iniquitous measure, designed to repeal the Pace bill and all other local option legislation under the guise of fairness to the cities and towns, but the friends of prohibition there were so hedged about that they could hard ly avail themselves of the act. He especially objected to the require-, ment that petitions for local option elections must be signed by twenty five per cent of the voters, and in the case of an incorporated town, by a majority of the common council in addition to twenty-five per cent of the voters. Mr. Sutter replied, defending the fairness of the measure In that it pro tected towns and cities from outside interferencce in matters of Its own financial and' moral concern. Mr. Shaw found in the bill a means of suppressing the saloon business in mining camps which, under the exist ing law, would be helpless. Mr. Woolf spoke at length against the bill. He did not believe that it would be held valid on account of its provision for artificial divisions, which the district court of Maricopa county and the supreme court of the territory hald held could not be established. Mr. Woolf reolied to Mr. Sutter's financial arguments in favor of the bill, saying that the burden of expense incident to the liquor traffic in a town was imposed upon the whole county, thus giving to the country districts a right to be heard. Strong speeches were made by Mr. Pace against the bill, and by Mr. Duffy for it. Others in behalf of the bill were Messrs. Hogwood and Hall, and Messrs. DeSouza, Merrill and Peterson against it. The debate was closed by Mr. High tower, the author of the bill, who said that his sentiments were against the liquor traffic, He wished that things might be so arranged that he could not get at intoxicating drinks. But he had something more to consider than his own welfare. There were the interests of his constituents to be look ed after, and they would best be served by the continuance of the liquor busi ness. "Therefore," said Mr. Hightower, "I'll support this bill if I have to stay drunk all the time." Mr. Doan moved for the reference of the bill to the whole committee on the ground that no opportunity had been given for amendment. This mo tion was defeated by a vote of 15 to 8. Then the bill went to final passage with the following result: Ayes Bailey, Bray, Coalter, Duffy, Hali, Hightower. Hogwood, Moore, Morris, McCormick, Reed, Roberts, Shaw, Sutter. Tobey. the speaker 16. Nays) DeSouza, Doan. Gibbons, Mer rill, Pace, Peterson, Woolf 7. The O'Neill Classification Bill. The O'Neill bill classifying the rail roads for the purpose of fixing pas senger fares, which it was thought the day before would be indefinitely post poned, was brought up for final pas sage. When Mr. Goodrich was reached, he explained his vote in opposition to the bill. He was satisfied that the bill was in contravention of the Hepburn law. whose authority over rates in the territory was exclusive and supreme; that the only result of the proposed legislation would be annoying litiga tion for which the territory would ul timately have to pay. The law, he was sure, could never be enforced. He believed that the legislature had gone to the limit of its authority in the pas sage of the railway commission bill. For the same reasons Mr. Hampton said he would oppose the bill. It was more important' that the legislature should not do useless and expensive things than that it should Indulge In grand-stand plays. The bill was passed by the following votei. Ayes Breen, Burns, Day, Morgan, O'Neill, St. Charles, Weedin, the presi dent 8. Nays Finley, Goodrich, Hampton, Norton 1. The House Session. The morning session of the house witnessed the introduction of two bills, one by Mr. Moore, appropriating $5,000 for a territorial exhibit at the Alaska-Yukon-Seattle-Exposition. This was afterward indefinitely postponed. By Mr. DeSouza, a bill establishing an eight-hour day for employes in laundries. The greater part of the morning ses sion was consumed by the committee of the whole, which, when it rose, rec ommended the passage of the Weedin council bill fixing an - eight-hour day for hoisting engineers and furnace men employed about mines. This bill had been amended so as to exempt small mine owners from its provisions. Bailey's bjll relating to the printing of election ballots. In form of the Colo rado law, was reported without recom mendation. A long discussion ensued over the Peterson bill proposing to increase the road tax to $3. and the bill vas un favorably recommended. The committee on Judiciary returned a favorable report on the Bailey bill to amend the regulations for admission to the bar by removing the require ment that the applicant for examina tion shall have taken a prescribed law course. His examination shall disclose his fitness to practice. Then came the Hightower bill and Its passage. An invitation was pre sented by Mr. Woolf from the citizens of Tempe to a banquet at a conven ient date. A petition was received from a large number of, ladies of Nav ajo county urging favorable action on the woman's suffrage bill. The Afternoon. The afternoon session was devoted generally to the passage of bills or other disposition of them .but every moVe tended to the clearing of the deck. The bill relating to the sales of dry goods in bulk was passed. The ob ject of this measure Is to prevent the defrauding of creditors by selling stocks of merchandise. The bill pro vides that when any one wishes to dispose of a stock, he must make pub lication of that fact.

DEMOCRATS CHOKED OFF And Sundry Civil Rill Pushed Through the House THE TENNESSEE MERGER A Vain Attempt to Mingle That With the Ship Subsi dy MeasureA Committee Appointed On Mr. Cook's Anti-Presidential Remarks.
