Phoenix. Feb. 13. (Special) This
week several of the most important
Litis of the Legislature will be taken
up for consideration. The two bills
attracting the widest comment here,
tho ranger bill and the "sheep" bill,
will be reported upon by committees
within the next few days. The bill
to abolish the rangers introduced gy
Mr. Ruiz is now in the hands of the
and .ways and means committee of which
Mr. Roemer is chairman and Messrs.
Bark and Rice members. All three
of the committee have announced
themselves as opposed to the passage
of an act to abolish the rangers and
it is certain that the report of the
committee upon the bill will be un
favorable, but the fight seems then to
oe begun, with Councllmen Ruiz, Per
ry, Downs, Page Looney, Cutting and
possibly Hnut favoring the passage of
the bill. It will be a close fight.

members of both houses from the
northern part of the terrlttpry, ana it
seems probable that before a vote on
either blll is called that a compro
mise will have been reached between
tiie sheepmen and the cattlemen
whereby the interests of both are
conserved by the passage Dy neither
ot these bills.
The bill introduced by Mr. Ander
son, of Prescott, providing for the of-
llce of a public examiner for the ter
ritory to attend to the general super
vision of the county and territorial
hooks and act as bank comptroller, ,is
causing gossip here as to who will
land the Job In case the bill becomes
a law. l'he name of E. R. Wells, of
Prescott, is mentioned here in con
nection with the appointment.
The Superior Court bill is Deing

of the house from Cochise county but

members from Maricopa ana uieir al

Is nearly always up to date and there
is a strung uppusmuu iu iuc unus

Mr. Kruger's bill for the taxation of
the mines of the territory in accord
ance with their yearly output is ex
pected the middle part of this week
and its introduction is being looked
forward to with great interest. Mr.
Kruger will not divulge" all the feat
ures of the blll. but states that he
thinks that all mining property in the
territory should be taxci to help pay
the expenses of the territory and
that this bill will provide for a just
method of getting at the valuation of
the mines to be assessed.
