JOHN OF BARNEVELT
John Van Olden, who is known to
history as John of Barneveldt, was
an eminent Dutch statesman who
lived during the second half nf the
sixteenth century. He was a Hol
lander and served his country as a
diplomat at several important stations
and in the settling of a number of
vexed questions, for in his day Hol
land cut quite a figure in the politi
cal history of Europe.
Barneveldt for many years was
grand pensioner of Holland and was
aligned with the republican paity.
The animosity between his party and
their opponents was aggravated by
religious dissensions, and Barneveldt
favored the Arminians or Jtemon
strants. The opposition party favored
the Gomarists, and tins party was
supportel by the army, the clergy
and the populace.
When the synod of Dort, in IMS,
condemned the Arminians. Barneveldt
was accused of treason. He was ar
rested on August L'H at the Binnenhof.
where he had gone to attend a session
of the States of Holland. When the
news became known of the great
statesman's arrest, there was great
excitement at The Hague. Barne
veldt was equally popular in France
as at home ,and French envoys la
bored earnestly for his liberation.
In prison Barneveldt had his papers
taken from him and he was deprived
of writing materials, while access to
his room was denied to all his rela
tives and friends. His trial did not
begin till March 7 of the following
year. During the nearly seven months
of his detention a flood of calumny
had been let loose against him such
as had hardly a parallel in history.
He was, if possible, to be dishonored
before he was destroyed.
Every man of those whom P.arne
veldt had raised to high office, whom
he had trained and enriched, fell
away from him. The great soldier
who had been guided by his counsels
and raised to power by his influence
told the French ambassadors that
Barneveldt had been striving to bring
hack the country under the vassalage
of Spain and had spread it about that
he, the prince, sought to make himself
master of the state.
The Frenchmen insisted upon a reg
ular trial according to the laws of
the land that is. by the high court
of Holland, which alone had juris
diction in the case. All their appeals
were disregarded, and at last Barne
veldt was brought to t.ial before a
tribunal of twenty-four, commission
ers a mere packed jury which in
cluded all his worst enemies. The
proceedings against the great advo
cate were, from first to last, grossly
illegal. Barneveldt was accused of having
favored Arminius in spieading new
opinions, of opposing national synods
of recommending toleration, of su
ggesing the enlistment of "Waartgel
ders." or militia, for the prevention
of riots, of receiving presents from
foreign potentates, of charging Mau
rice of Nassau with aspiring to the
sovereignty of the country, of offend
ing the king of Gnat Britain, and.
in general, of so acting as to put the
provinces in danger of civil war.
For nearly three months the trial
went on, and it may be. said that the
atrocities of the French revolution

Interest in the dry amendment is so
great because of the campaign that has
been made in its behalf that no one
knows anything about the wet amend
ment that has been proposed under the
initiative "Providing that no prohibi

eight years from and after such pre
There are four sections of the pro
posed amendment, numbered 17, 18, 19,
and 20. Section 17 provides simply that
no election shall be held for eight years
after this election. If the voter was to
take the title and section 17 for his
cue he might be led to vote for the
amendment thinking that he already
understood the import of it. The
amendment seems to have been drawn
with this design. It bears on its face
every possible evidence of having been
framed to deceive and mislead.
Section 18 begins to reveal the cloven
hoof. It contains 261 words without a
stop. This is in itself a suspicious cir
cumstance. Whenever anyone uses 261
words in one sentence it may be taken
as a settled fact that he is attempting
to deceive. He is concealing some
thing. He is not frank and open. lie

hill and as soon as the $25,000 is received
from the California side of the river,
work on the new structure can be com
menced. The project of a bridge across the
Colorado at Needles has been under
consideration for some time. An ap
propriation f $25,000 for this purpose
passed the first special session of the
state legislature, the conditions being
that an equal amount was to be fur

The bill providing for a similar approp

legislature, as did the one providing
$25,000 for the bridge at Yuma, but it

to conceal the most vicious "joker" ever
wrapped up in ambiguous verbiage.
The lawyer who wrote it deserves every
cent he got for it. He doubtless had
his instructions in advance and fully
met the requirements. He succeeded
in employing the English language to a
purpose that is more or less strange to
it, that of concealing meaning in
stead of revealing it.
Here is the section, judge it for your
self: "Whenever an election has been
held or shall hereafter be held upon

It will be observed that the voter,
having satisfied himself by the title
and the first section of the measure
that it has to do only with the time of
holding prohibition elections and that
nothing else is involved, and, being
desirous of making use of the victory
for eight years, is likely to vote for
the measure without looking into it
any further. This is where the matter
is most dangerous.
Voting to make Arizona dry, the
voter is defeated by this section. He
could not make Arizona drv under it
even if the majority should be over
whelming. In spite of majority rule
this amendment defeats majoritv rule.
It is impossible to make the state dry
at all unless every nrecinct in the state
should go dry. and this is impossible
anywhere. The "jcker" in section IX
simply provides fot the defeat of the
will of the peopl by making every
precinct wet that gives a wet majority,
and this means a wet state from end

wet, and there is no chance to help
yourself for eight years.
Section 19 even provides for "subdi

the framers of the amendment intended
to increase the number of saloons by
dividing the territory. One man who

less of the sentiment of the county or
state or even of the city or town with
more than one precinct.
It will be seen that this so-called
"eight year amendment" is a most
dangerous one. The forces behind this
infamous measure must explain their
intent in framing it or stand pilloried
at the bar of public opinion for delib
erately insulting the intelligence of the
voters of Arizona and endeavoring to
steal an election through false pre
tense, fraud and deception.
