The legislature came to the edge
of one of the big things of the ses
sion yesterday morning the con
sideration of the mine tax bill. The
finance committee of the senate,
which has had it since early the
first of the week, has discussed it,
in meetings of its own and with
the house ways and means com
mittee holding hearings at which
1 lie mining interests and the tax
commissioners were allowed to ex
press their views, reported the bill to
the senate with a recommendation
if its enactment. The report was
signed by Chairman Bacon of the
committee, and Messrs. Lovin, Cam
bell, MaeMillan and Garvin. A mi
nority report adverse to the bill was
presented by Messers. Karns of
Santa Cruz county, and Webb of this
county. The bill was ordered on the
calendar for consideration by the
senate in the committee of the whole
today. It 'is stated that no essential
changes have been made in the
measure since its introduction.
The hearings, that is, the open
hearings have not generally been
given to a discussion of the merits
of the bill. The ta-x commissioners
who are opposed tot in principle,
refused to consider it, but generally
confined their remarks to the ample
provisions of the general taxing law
for the assessment of mines. The
mining' men have devoted themsel
ves for the most part to the impos
sibility of assessing mines as other j
property may be assessed. Refer- J
ence was made more frequently to
the measure In pointing out the
points of difference between it and
the mine taxing law of the last two
years. -jf;
The Savagery of Arizona.
Various things happened early in
the day to disturb the serenity of
the senate and put the members in
to ill-humor. The first was a com
munication from the office of the
adjutant general from one C. fl. Sin
sabaugh, the editor of Motor Age of
Chicago, demanding protection by
the military for tourists against In
dians and brigands, who Mr. Sin
sabaugh understood still infested these
parts. Mr. Sinsabaugh inquired in
what part of the state the road
agents were the most numerous.
This Information was desired, he said
for the Information of the readers
of his publication. He desired an
early reply. He will get it for As
sistant Secretary O. P. cronin pre
pared the following letter, less for
the Information of Mr. Sinsabaugh
than for the purpose of having
spread upon the records of the legis
lature a description of the character

NEW YORK. Jan. 2C John I). Rock
efeller's money gifts to philanthropy
were placed at a quarter of a billion
dollars by his son John I). Rockefeller,
Jr., testifying the second days before
lhe federal commission on industrial
relations which is investigating great
philanthropic foundations and indus
trial urrest. The hulk of 'this huge
sum was given to the Rockefeller
Foundation, the University of Chicago,
the general education board, and the
Rockefeller Institute for Medical Re
search. General defense of these gifts was
made , the son declaring they had not
become a menace to the public, in his
opinion and did not influence stocks,
bonds or universities. Another straight
five hours testimony dealt largely with
conditions in the Colorado coal fields.
After the session Rockefeller shook
hands with "Mother" Jones, and asked
her to discuss conditions with him and
give him information to aid in correct
ing any abuses.
On the stand Rockefeller under ex
amination said he favored the "black
list" when not distributed among other
employers and said he did not believe
employers generally could be implicity
trusted to safeguard their employees'
interests voluntarily.
The commission went deeply jnto the
charges that the Colorado Fuel and
I Iron company' controlled politicians in
the mining districts, furnished deputy
sheriffs with firearms when trouble
was imminent, paid them salaries, con
trolled the utterances of ministers; ex
ercised lhe power of removal from pul
pits, and maintained benevolent abso
lutism in the appointment of school
teachers.
