complaint asks that the defendants be
commanded to pay the amount of the
bonds in full as follows: Maricopa
county, $203,550; Yavapai county, $248.
268.71; Coconino county, $101,167.29,
and Pima county, $319,791.23.
The complaint was filed by L. M.
Laney, county attorney of Maricopa
county, and C- B. "Wilson of Flagstaff,
special attorney for the counties. It
was signed by Kirke T. Moore, county
attorney, and K. B. Ftawley, deputy
county attorney of Fima county; Neil
C. Clark, county attorney, and E. S.
Clark, deputy county attorney of Yava
pai county; F. M. Gold, county attor
ney, and George W. Harbin, deputy
county attorney of Coconino county,
and Mr"Laney and Mr. Wilson.
According to the complaint, the bonda
were issued by the counties under an
act, No. 35, of the twelfth legislative
assembly, territory of Arizona, In 1883,
entitled "An act to promote the con
struction of a certain railroad." Pima
county, under the act, was required
to issue $200,000 in bonds, Yavapai
county to issue $292,000, and Maricopa
county to issue $200,000. In 1891, Coco
nino, formerly a part of Yavapai, be
came a county and the boards of su
pervisors of these bounties then ap
portioned the bond Issue, one-third to
Coconino and the remainder to Yavapai
county. In the validation of the bonds
by congress, the accrued Interest at
that time was added to the bonds,
which increased the original issue to
the present amounts asked for by each
county as the bond issue
Section 25 of the act enabling Arizona
to become a state added a clause that
after the land had been sold and the
bond issue refunded to the four coun
ties, the remainder of the land fund
was to go to the common school fund
of the state. The county attorneys of
each county interested and Mr. Wilson
met In Prescott on June 21 and decided
to file mandamus proceedings. The
state school board at that time refused
to enter the suit.

physical appetite. .
