sands of men are out tonight pitting
their ingenuity against the cold in an
effort to save from further damage
the Southern California citrus crop,
valued at $50,000,000.
What the loss entailed by last
night's freeze was cannot be esti

WASHINGTON, Jan. 6. A score

House committee of ways and

sharp revision of the Payne-Aldrich
iariff law coming before the extra
session of Congress.
The discussion ranged Irom poker

to laundry soap. The burden of the
arguments was the maintenance of
the present tariff instead of the

chemical tariff revision bill put

House veto last year.

LONDON, Jan. 6 The first stage

regarded by diplomats as largely as
one of pretense on Turkey's part
to avoid the appearance of yielding
to the demands of the allies without
pressure from powers, is now over.
It is expected the second stage
will now soon begin with the pow

which will compel Turkey to con

PHOENIX, Jan. 6. Application
was this morning made to the Su
preme Court for a writ of manda
mus compelling J. C Call aghan,
Auditor of the State, to approve for
payment, a claim of the Arizona
Motor Company for the purchase
price of an automobile contracted
for with the selling concern by the
State Board of Control. The appli
cation had been made Saturday to
Justice Cunningham but he desired
to consult the other members of
the court before entering the order
for the appearance of the State Aud
itor and a hearing, and suggested
the application be renewed Monday.
The Supreme Court this morning
refused to hear the matter, the par
ties being unable to agree or stipu
late as to the facts. The' court has
a rule only to hear matters where
the facts are established, consequent
ly the application for an order for
Callaghan to appear and answer will
be made tomorrow morning to
Judge Phillips of the Superior Court
of this county.
Tne situation which makes a
merry tempest in the political tea
pot of Arizona all came about
through a series of circumstances
transpiring about as follows: Appli
cation was made by the prison offi
cials at Florence to Ihc Boara of
Contral for an automobile, it being
set up that with the working of
the convicts on the roads and the
maintaining of the several convict
road camps now in existence, the
use of an automobile would be a
saving to the state and expedite the
administratioin of the duties of
Warden Simms. The Board of Con
trol trfok kindly to the suggestion
and ordered an advertisement for
bids for an auto.
On the opening of the bids the
contract was awarded the Arizona
Motor company for a 44-horsepower
7-passenger car, the total price be
ing $2,343. It -will be recalled that
during the territorial administration
an auto was purchased and given
over to the use of the Governor's
office where it remained until the ar

Detroit, when a switch was made
and the old car was sent to the
prison at Florence and the new car
was taken in charge by the chauffeur
of Governor Hunt. The car is m
such use today.
The fact that tfie new car did not
get to the prison, the institution for
the use of which it was originally
advertised for, seemed to be of lit
tle concern of any one around the
capitol. There was some jokine
with Governor Hunt over his ap
propriating the new car and sending
the old one to his pet state institu
tion and other jokes over the gov
ernor using a car at all, it being
recalled that he had exhibited un
usual walking proclivities on the oc
casion of his inauguration. Every
thing went well until the claim was
presented to the auditor for pay
ment of the -car.

prove ihe clairiJj tahing the position
that the car was not in -use by the
institution for which it was purch

should some taxpayer raise the -ucs-tion
of error in payment.
Auditor Callahan declined courte
ously but specifically to discuss the
case about to b? brought, but
from sources outside the Auditor's
office it was learned by your corre
spondent that the position of Audi
tor Callaghan is taken, Hot on the
question of the necessity of a car
for the Governor or Board of Con
trol, but because of the fact that the
contract with the motor company
specified that the car was for the
state prison and claim for payment
of same was drawn against the
prison fund, although the car was
delivered to the Governor and used
by him since delivery last November
up to date.
If the auto can be paid for in such7
a manner, other state funds might
be used; those of any state institu
tion, for the Board of Control or the
Governor's office. Callaghan oppos
ed the purchase of the new car
from the beginning and according t
the records of the Board of Con
trol made a motion that all bids be
reiccted at the time the Arizona To
tor Company bid was accepted.
