No action was taken upon it in the course of tie day and no senator was prepared to say what the next move would hp. It was said that the message had been referred to the office of the attor ney general to pa.ss upon the objection which the governor had urged against the hill m constitutional grounds. Thnueh It had hern predicted that th' hill would he vetoed, from the time it wit-: sent to the Governor and though sui'h a eonfinceuev had heen consid ered, evidently the veto caught the sen ators us veil as the members of the house hy surprise.

The amendment made at the surges tlon of Mr. TVInsor. the author of the code, to meet the objections of the newspapermen to that section relating to the dissemination of campaign liter nture.

A motion to expunge all that had so fat ocen done from the records finally car ried and it was observable that all the republican members voted against the expulsion of tho paper from the demo cratic party. Thero w-as considerable other cx purEinji of the record. !r. Galbraith's motion against the quadruple reading of tho election code was expunged and also his protest that tho record should show how the hill was read, so tnat there will be nothing in tho journal ex cept the record of the fact that the bill was read. Senate Passes Dental Bill The senate yesterday passed the denial hill. This bill removes the bars which have surrounded that pro fession for some years, and admits to practive ail who have certificates from other states, without examination: moreover, it relaxes the rigidity of examinations. It Is predicted that d result of such a law, would be to fill up the statu with incompetent dentists, men who years ago held certificates in their own states, granted to them before there was strirt legislative re quirements. Ientist.i point out that tho only new dentists who will be adversely affected will he the young man fresh from dental schools and who will be murai better qualified than the old-timt practitioners who have been forcet out of their own states by competition with skillful dentists and who will nat urally flock here. A bill was introduced into the house hy Mr. C.albraith which turns out to be a quite important measure. It amends criminal procedure in cases in volving the death penalty. That pro cedure was changed by the law of two yars ao abolishing capital punish ment but the restoration of it by the people last fall did not have the effect of restoring the changed procedure in murder cases. Several unimportant bills were passed in the house in the course of the day. Will Amend Education Bill It was expected that House Bill Id would be taken up in the senate yes terday morning. That is the consti tutional amendment, among othr. things, making the office of state school hUperintender.t appointive in stead rif elective and changing the method of making up the state board of education, also increasing the pow ers and Jurisdiction of the board. An effort to indefinitely postpone the bll had been made in the senate, but failed hy a tie vote. Mr. Wilkinson then announced that :,e would offer an amendment that would meet the objec tions of the senators, providing that f ratified hy tho people it should not become effective before January 1 1S2.1. The amendment seems super- fluoxift. since the superintendent of education who will be elected at the same time the pmendment is submit ted would hold his office anyhow un til that date. Tho amendment thougn would delay the operations of the new board for a year. It Is believed that that will be satisfactory to the op position. The following bills were passed by the senate; Bills Passed in Senate Amending the law relating to im provement bonds. The bill making appropriation for co-operation "with the biological sur vey in the warfare against predatory animals and injurious rodents. The expediting of surveys ordered hy cor.cress. Regulating public accounting. The house bill making appropriation for painting the portraits of the pre siding officers of the house and sen ite.

Further action in tho matter of : -esolution Introduced the other day ." the request of the state corporatio commission for an investigation of th charges which have heen informally made agrynst the commission was postponed until today. There is increasing anxiety about the position of House. Bill 60 in the senate where it was sent more than week ago. That is the state land bill which some have begun to suspect has been retained as a handy instru ment to have about the house in the case of an emergency.

The total value of buildings for which permits were issued last month was $134.65t, an enormous gain over the proceeding month, when the valua tion was only $00,665.

C. BAUM SHERIFFS MIT -rca TEW Every Sheriff In Arizona Is Represented At Meeting Held Yesterday At Hotel Adams, To Discuss Needs A bill providing for a four-year term of office for the sheriff will be intro duced in the legislature today, the bill having been draltca at a meeting ot sheriffs or their representatives from the 14 counties of the state, which was held in this city yesterday. The proposed amendment provides not only that the sheriff shall serve four years, but makes the provision that the officials now in office continue their term over that period. It is understood that the bill will be introduced simultaneously in the sen ate and the house and that the judi ciary committee in both houses will stand behind the proposed legislatiion. Leading members of the legislative body, it is understood, are in favor oi the measure on the ground of "effi ciency in government," They are of the opinion that it takes fully a year for a sheriff to "learn the tricks of the trade " and that by the time he has qualified he must begin electioneering for anoth er term or step aside for a new man unfamiliar with the duties of the of fice. Furthermore, they declare that thi sheriff works with the Judge and the clerk of the court, both of whom are elected for a four-year term. Unite on One Measure While the meeting was called to per fect a more thorough co-operation among the sheriffs of the state and to discuss many matters of vital inter est to the state's welfare which coulri only be brought about by legislation It was agreed to concentrate on the on amendment the sheriffs firm of the conviction that with but few days re maining it would be practically impos sible to accomplish more. The four-year term was proposed by Sheriff Eugene Shute of Gila county shortly after the meeting was called to order in tho blue room of the Adam? hotel yesterday morning. The matter was more fully gone into last evening when Senator Elliott of Greenlee conn ty was asked to be present at the ses sion and aid in the passage of the bill. Senator Elliot said he was in thorough sympathy with the bill which would unquestionably tend toward efficiency In office. While Senator Elliot was in accord with the proposed amendment to paragraph 2508, Chapter 4. Title X Revised Statutes, 1913 he declared he could not speak for the legislature which was as temperamental as an actress. Harder For Auto Thieves The meeting was presided over by Sheriff William Mahoney of Mohave county, who was named as president of the newly organized association which will meet twice a year. Sheriff Shute was elected secretary. One of the matters that created live ly discussion had to do with catchin" auto thieves and a svstem of countv tags by way of identification was sug gested. Better police protection was also advocated and a genecl discussion relative to piprehending criminals fea tured the gathering. Practically every sheriff present wa in favor of making it a felonv if a boot legger carried a weapon. The officers held that practically every bootlegge" ger and that they were ready to shoot If necessary. The sheriffs who do not already belong to the International Sheriffs and Police Officers' Associ ations Code signified their intention of becoming a member so that they might use the code when deemed advisable. A resolution which had the endorse- ment of the association was read at the close of the meetinff. ! Resolved, That we. the sheriffs of the i state of Arizona demand the power to j appoint all officers who work out of ! the sheriff's office as deputies as we j are responsible under our bond, for the , actions of all appointees, to be ratified ' by the board of supervisors. I Many Present Among the officers present were Sheriff Mahoney of Mohave county: Sheriff Harp of Navajo county: Sher iff Greenleaf of Yuma county. Sheriff Harrington of Coconino county.

Tucker is proprietor of the Sweetwater store, four miles west of Sacaton on the Gila river, on the reservation. Iast season he bought $51,000 worth of cot ton grain from the Indians alone. "Talk about jour cotton growers," said Mr. Tucker. "They (the Indians) are the ones that grow it There are only two things they ask for the com ing season, and that is the Lord for a little more rain, and the government for irrigating water, and they will pro duce the cotton." Fi Giving chase to an alleged pick pocket, Harry Johnson, assistant coun ty attorney, last evening captured Joe Aldrich who Is said to have operated as a pickpocket at tho carnival grounds. Aldrich in giving flight ran directly 'nto a net of officers, his course lead :ng to the court house. As he tore through the grounds., Johnson fired two shots which brought Deputy Sheriff Jim Troutman to his aid. In a moment Aldrich was taken into cus tody and booked at the county jail on the charge of being a pickpocket. Aldrich's actions at the carnival at tracted the attention of the assistant county prosecutor who had him un der his eye for some time. Aldrich, who was unaware that he was under suspicion, made the serious mistake of approaching the companion of John- son. It was then that Johnson acted, taking his man ia .charge.
