PAGE TH&EE ( 80 NEW W ON: STATUTE BOOKS IN FEW BAYS REFERENDUMS TOy HOLD UP REDLIGHT ABATE MENT, ANTI-GAMBLING AND MINIMUM WAGE LAW FOR WOMEN. (From Friiiaj'i Daily.') Within the next few days SO new laws, placed on the statute boojes by llic Third State legislature and ap proved by Governor Campbell, will become effective. Unless it carries the emergency clause, a law does not become effective until 90 days after i's approval by the governor, but as I-c legislative session came to an end on March S and most of the laws were approved promptly by the gov ernor, they will, with the exception of those against which a referendum his been invoked, became effective drr ng the first part of 'his month. Throe of the laws passed by the last legislature and signed by the governor will not go into effect at this time, referendum petitions bear ing the required number of signatures having been filed against them with the secretary of State. They arc the redlight abatement law, which was I?ttcrncd after the California statute, and which penalizes landlords: the : rti-gambling bill which makes the participant equally guilty with the keeper of the game anil wliicli sought to include punchboards within the list of forbidden amusements, and the minimum wage for women. All of the measures will now have to be re ferred to the people for approval at the next general election. Referendum petitions arc also being c:rculatcd against the county highway commission bill, the high school cadet bill and the bills creating game pre serves in various parts of the State, fn spite of the popular denunciation of its action in attempting to file a referendum against the bill providing for military training in the high schools, the Socialist party has per sisted in its efforts to refer the meas ure. At Socialist headquarters in Phoenix it was stated that the work rf securing signatures to delay the operation of the law was still going on. Opposition to the creation -of four game preserves m addition to the large areas now forbidden to sportsmen on Indian reservations has been general in many parts of the State. In spite of the referendum, how c.cr, a number of laws aimed at rcgn lr.tion of the health and morals of the State will take effect this month. Im portant among these arc the drastic :.nti-cigarcttc law, which makes it a misdemeanor for a minor to buy, or accept, tobacco in any form, or to sell or give tobacco to minors. Another law, designed to strengthen the pro hibition amendments, fixes penalties :i:id provides for the destruction of liquor seized by officers of the law. Still another prohibits the manufac ture or sale of Julapai, tiswin or corn beer, by Indians. Among the health measures may be mentioned the law abolishing the common towel and common drinking cup in all public places. Divorced persons will be compelled to wait for one year before remarry ing under a new law which goes into effect June 12. While there has been some question as to whether the law would apply to divorces granted be fore that date, it is generally taken that it will not. As a result there has been noted a marked increase in the number of divorce suits filed since the law was passed. Important among the new laws v l:ich take effect today is that creat ing the commission of State institu tions. This new body is to be com posed of three members, appointed by ihc governor, and is to take over the administrative functions of the board .f control, which is abolished by the. same measure. The new commission will, however, have complete supcr- ifion not only of the corrective and 1-cnal institutions of the State, but :.lso of the educational institutions, including the State university. An cthcr important law is the widow's pension law, which was passed in the last few minutes of flic session. It provides for pensions of from 15 to V50 per month for widows with del-indent children who have resided in rizona for one year. Another measure that is of impor tance to the people of the State i. that combining the offices of county rnd city assessor and county and city tax collector. Under the provisions cf this measure the office of city as sessor is abolished and the county assessor also assesses the city taxes. The office of city assessor and city tix collector is abolished except in the cases of cities operating under a special charter, which may amend their charters so as to conform with the new law if they so desire. Other laws which will shortly take effect arc the brokers' license bill, v hich requires an annual license fee cf 200 from each brokerage house c Derating in the State and the filing of a $5,000 bond; the bill providing for hc establishment of free employ r cnt offices under the supervision of the commission of Stale institutions n co-operation with the Federal de partment of labor; the law forbidding the printing of anonymous advcrtiM"-l'.cnt'- in connection with any initiated, i r referred measure or amendment to' ihc- constitution: a law providing a( method for the extermination ol prairie dogs by the various counties, Mid a law making it possible for every j county in the State to hold a counts lair once a year if it so desires. Thej lat-named measure carries au appro-1 priation out of Stale funds of $l,000j f.r each county that desires to hold such a fair. 'THROOP Among the appropriations, which ' will be available immediately for State i 1 uildings are $125,000 for an addition to the State capitol building: $30,000' tor a mining exhibit building at the' State fair grounds, and $7,000 for the' purchase of the old gubernatorial j mrnsinn at Prescott.

McCaffrey v.-as seized with hemorrhage of the lungs in his room at the Pioneers' Home in this citv, Wednesday cven- dis-.ing, and a few minutes later passed away. The death of this widely known Arizonan takes away another old- time resident, and as well one of the V- " . " " i-.-r Returning to the southern section oi i the State he became interested in I Tombstone, and also went into Mcx- ico, where with other Americans he fared badly in mistreatment given by certain officials of Sonora. It was at this time when Captain McCaffrey as- scrtcd his rights to command an ex pedition to recover what was unjust ly exacted from the American by the Mexican, but his purpose failed when interference with plans came from the Federal service. Again, xcturning to' the north. Captain McCaffrey secured by location what fVnow known as the I .onia copper group, situated near Kirkland valley, where ho outlayed quite a large sum in development. fter his physical breakdown a few years ago, he entered the Pioneer";' Home, and made a will of this prop erty to the Sisters of Mercy of Pres cott. The early life of the deceased was attended with a military career of conspicuous daring. He was admit ted to West Point from Ohio and graduated therefrom in 1856, as an en gineer, ranking at the head of the class. When the- Civil war occurred he entered the Confederate army, and chose artillery as his arm of the ser vice. He was in the command of Gen eral Beauregard, and his record wa exceptional. Several times' he was offered promotion, but refused the honor. When Colonel A. O. Urodic was chief engineer of the Walnut Grove dam, in 1889, the ability of Cap tain McCaffrey was recognized by his being appointed as an assistant to the former, when construction of the lower clam proved the skill of both engineers. When the Spanish-American war occurred, Captain McCaffrey tendered his services to the nation and would have been accepted had not his physical condition disbarred him from active duty. He was of a fine type of the Southerner, and withall an exceptional man, clean in all deal ings and generously inclined. lie was born in Baltimore 85 years ago. The funeral will probably take place on Saturday morning at the Church of the Sacred Heart, where a requiem high mass will be observed. STRENUOUS LIFE TO BECOME OFFICER (From Friday's Daily.) Writing from Fort Logan H. Roots, Arkansas, Emmet T. Morrison, who is training for a commission in the regular army,, has the following to say to his father, Attorney Robt. F Morrison, of his military experience: "Believe me, if they intend to make us officers, they are certainly doing their darndest. We work fully 12 hours per day, and every little detail is diligently gone through with clock like precision. We get up at 5:30 'clock in the morning and arc given or.ly ten minutes to dress for personal inspection. Rrcakfast is then served and when the lights go out it is 10:30 o'clock at night. During the instruc tion period there is not a minute but what something is doing. When I arrived at the camp I was the crudest looking rookie, but have been shaped up and now am a corporal of my squad. Xcxt week will have to drill the company. The weekly hike of ten lies is some exertion. Wc carry a prrk of mess kit, shelter tent, pancho, title, ammunition, and other cquip i lent which weighs 60 pounds. I am all in, but that is not exceptional, for all feel the same, and there arc 2,500 of us who go through the ordeal as the orders are given. I am in a command t i r i i i .t ,,r '.

On the inarch wc sing familiar songs, and all arc as happy as can be. For myself will say that I was never so happy or contented in all my life. For th? present my arm of the sen-ice is the cavalry, but later the branch I will Tccide to enter will be chosen by my self. The program changes frequent Ij, and we have to keep on the jump to become conversant with military duties of a very exacting nature to bei observed, and particularly so if field! I'ction takes place. I will be here for fcveral weeks." LIBERTY LOAN'S AD CAMPAIGN IS GREATEST (From Thursday's Daily.)

Midglcy, formerly owner of the Vahnda Rancho in Wil liamson valley, has again entered mili tary life, and recently assumed charge of the Clarkdalc Home Guard, a com mand of over 100 men, which body he i instructing in the art of war. His past record was with the National Cuard of California. He will remain at Clarkdalc to get his company In' good shape, when he returns to a coast training camp to instruct an other company of soldiers.

BISBEE, June 6. While the cop per producers of the State arc con fronting and combating more or less unrest attendant upon the work of rifitators in their districts and the out come is yet uncertain with regards to maintenance of output of the metal at the high figure which patriotism snd the needs of the government and its Allies dictate the necessity of. there is no abatement of new devel opment work in all of the districts nor in the attractiveness which these extend to investors. It is a notable fact in this connec t-on that there is at the present time more money engaged in, the develop ment of new properties in Ari7ona that has come direct from the pockets of miners than in any previous period of the industry. It is safe to say that two-thirds of the men employed in operating the producing mines of Arizona arc the possessors of more or less shares in the properties of dc- eloping concerns. Those invest ments run from a matter of $25 up to $6,000 and more. The $6,000 figure is mentioned because it happens to be the amount that one Risbec miner drew from his savings and put in a single Jerome company which is now developing its propcr.ty. In this same cr-mpany other Risbec miners arc said to have upwards of $150,000. In other Jerome companies it is known that there is more than $250,000 distribut id by Risbec miners. The latter also have investments in Globe, Miami, Ray and Superior developing proper- tics, as well as investment in "the shares of several Warren district i ropcrtics which arc under develop ment. On the whole it is a conservat ive guess that they have nearer ont million dollars than half a million dollars invested at the immediate time in mining development work o the State, all entirely aside from the imcstnicnts they arc carrying in the properties of producing companies and from which they are drawing ; dmdends. The existence of this situation com pels the inference that there arc many tiitn in Arizona, workingnien, who bttvc a positive manner of interest, ficm the financial viewpoint in the lestoration of general conditions of activity and undisturbed inflow of r'oncy to desirable new development ir the State. The Bisbce district while probably the largest investor, because it is the biggest camp in the State, is no exception to the rule in l.oint of investment by its miners, The miners of every other district have been going just as strong pro portionately. The strike at Jerome put all of ils developing companies out of com mission, with exception of Arkansas & Arizona. The majority have sustained damage amounting from several hundred up o a number of thousands of dollars mainly through water that has come in upon them. Such loss is sustained, whether in time or money or both, comes back to the shareholders, The possibility of State-wide trouble is in consequence of the general in vestment which miners have made in stocks presenting quite as big a prob tJ ,lW., .f.fet,..., ,..V1.w. .,.., -ro rAnfmnnrr ThU situation without doubt is entering (materially into the greater attitude lf conscrvatisln that has developed , , , g , ,ast !.,., . i. ntn.i v . rv ti i i ii laiu k ittj uvvu -i-.i.i . 4 ti-.i.

" ""-'" for the closed shop, the contract and lhc check-off system, about both of which latter features organized labor in the State is openly and bitterly divided. Meantime the conservative miner v. ith money invested in both produc ing and developing mines knows that the country needs the output of the mines as a war necessity and that there is need of bringing in new mines to increase output as speedily as pos sible because of government require ments or possible requirements. On the personal side he is anxious to get as much production from operating mines while metal is high as he can, fot that means more returns on shares investment, while there is even more incentive for his wish to sec new pro ducers come in that hc may have have share investment in while the market is high. Another important item coming up along this line ofj consideration is the shrinkage in share values in the market which would at tend any general disturbance of pro duction and development in the State. It is not believable under the cir- cwmsUnces that any general trouble c;in be brought about in the. State to shorten metal production materially,; i l-o" matter wb'at efforts enemies ot' the government may nut forth in that jd:rection. . POSTERS BEING SENT i ALL OVER ARIZONA (From Friday's Daily.)
