HAS BID OFFICE i Andrew Baumert, Jr., secretary to the board of directors of the" state in stitutions and rated one of the most influential members of the state's re publican organization, continued to re tain hi3 portfolio at a late hour last night at which time he refused to state whether he intended to remain in the official family of Governor Thomas E. Campbell. Reports were current yesterday that the secretary - bad suddenly resigned his office and divorced himself from the administratipn for reasons . of "temperamental incompata bility". Baumert denied the reports, insisting that he was itill on the job. but he evinced no curiosity whatever about the origin of the reports. When asked for an answer to the rumor of his resignation Baumert re plied: . Will Not Deny It "Yes, I heard about the rumors, but no letter of resignation has been sent to the governor by me in so far as I know." The possibility being suggested that somebody else might have done his re signing for him or that he might have resigned by word - of mouth, it was deemed in order to ask the secretary if there were .any "understandings' about : his resignation. This question received a negative' answer. "Then, Mr. Baumert, will you say that you are not going to resign?" To this question Secretary Baumert an swered: '.'Well, I won't just say that!" "The persons who are interested won't be in doubt very long," Mr. Baument volunteered, "inasmuch as rumors are either true or false, and the issue of the rumor will be settled one way or the other pretty soon." The reported resignation of Baumert brings up the words of Governor Campbell at the meeting of the repub lican state convention in Tucson Feb ruary 28 at which time the governor took occasion to refer to a certain lack of . support from the leaders of his own " party. ' Eventually the con vention adopted resolutions supporting Governor Campbell's - administration' and nothing was heard publicly about his refernce to a lack of support. It was known that a terrific contest was on preceding the county committee meeting, here, in " which Secretary Laumert "worked on the floor" during the entire proceeding and easily proved himself a dominating factor present. At the county meeting, mentioned above, the division of opinion con cerned the choice , of delegate to tie state convention, one faction desiring delegates who tavored George Elias .is a dele?te to the national convention' from th Maricopa district ani the other faction desiring delegates who favored R- E. Floane as a delegate to the national convention. The Elias crowd were working in part for 'the SANTA FE 1 RESUME PUBLICATION OF ITS C MAI The Santa Fe Railroad company will resume publication of its official paper, the Earth, with J. F. Jarrell, former editor, in charge,' according to an an nouncement made today by . F. P. Cruice, assistant . general freight and passenger agent. The first -number will appear Auril 1., Mr. Jarrell is in Phoenix today, arranging with Harry Welch, secretary of the chamber of commerce, for an article about the Salt River valley. "The Earth Is one of the Santa Fe's contributions to the general scheme of building- up :the country,". Mr. Cruice said. "It contains illustrated stories about the development of the territory served by the Santa Fe lines Phoenix and the Salt River valley, for instance and the distribution is among those who .make inquiry regarding this terri tory. Before the war, the Earth was instrumental in. directing, the attention of a large number of honieseekers and other desirable investors to. Arizona, and a good many located here as a re sult - of the company's 1 cooperation. The Earth will continue to be a booster for Phoenix and the Salt River valley." Mr. Jarrell said that during federal control of the railroads the Santa Fe kept a careful recorcU of all Inquiries coming in about Arizona, and now is prepared to give inquirers the informa tion they want. "Due to crowded conditions In the east," he said, "farmers must come to the west where land Is available, and Arizona offers unusual advantages. Land here can be purchased at reason able prices, and there cannot be a fail ure 9f crops because diversification is the rule. First class markets can be found within reach of every producer. The climate is ideal, and living condi tions are satisfactory. Arizona is due for big agricultural development, and 1 look for a heavy increase in the state's population in 1920 and 1921." . o IT'S A BIG ORDER THESE BOYS PICKED CHICAGO Indians!

Baumert's c-rovd, favoring Elias, won the local fight and the delegates who went from the county committee to the state convention proved to be Elias men as Elias was elected to be the del egate to the rational convention. . . When Baumert was asked last night if the report of hi resignation had anything to do with the Tucson affair he answered cryptically: t "The public will have to wait and see."
