That "Perfect Constitution"
Has Many Kinks That
Need Straightening.
t B5" Geo- - Clements.)
, Phoenix, Ariz., Nov. 1. When the
j constitution of Arizona was handed
over a year ago to the people of the
state by the constitutional convention
fOF discussion and ratification it -was
1 declared by its makers and their spoa-
i , . . - -
to one of the most perfect
man-made instruments extant and
those who dared to criticise any of its
provisions were held up to public
scorn. A full list of state officers and
a state legislature running with the
constitution as a platform were elect
ed to office, but when the "perfect"
document was put to the practical test
it was found full of flaws before the
new government had been in power 30
dajs and there was an immediate rush
to patch it up. The result has been
that the people are asked to accept or
reject seven amendments to the funda
mental law on Tuesday next Of these,
four were recommended by the legis
lature and one, the woman suffrage
amendment, was proposed by iniative
petition Besides the amendments to
the constitution, the voters will, also,
be required to pass judgment on eight
laws enacted by the first state legisla
ture, but ordered to a referendum by
petition of the people. Those of these;
aefs relating to the regulation of rail
roads have hitherto been discussed In
these columns. They number six: of
the remaining two, one provides that
liens may lie against mines and min
ing claims for labor performed and
the other is intended to regulate the
killing of game birds and animals
within the state in such manner that
game of all kinds may not be unduly
slaughtered and that a revenue may
be derived from the sate of licenses to
Weakness of Constitution.
Of all the measures to be passed
upon, the proposed amendment pro
viding that the assessing, equalizing
and levying of taxes throughout the
state shall be subject to the action of
the legislature, is the moBt important
and its necessity discovers the most
vital of the many weaknesses of the
constitution. V
The constitution as it aow reads
creates a tax commission, but leaves
it Dowerless as in another section n

In former years producing mines
were assessed upon the basis of 26
percent of their output with an ad
valorem valuation upon smelters, con
centrators and other tangible evidences
of wealth over ground. This year,
however, that method was abandoned
and efforts made to discover the
value of the ore in the ground as well
as upon that taken out and all lumped
with smelters, concentrators, mills,
etc . on top on an ad valorem basis.
The miners and mine owners pro
tested that the new system meant con
fiscation and suggested that Inasmuch
as ore in the ground In a mine which
'heinir nnerated and not held for
speculation purposes is valueless until
taken out and reduced to metallic
form, it should not fee taxed, and sug
gested further that if more revenue

SenatorsJClark Fights Assessment.
In the case of the United Verde mine,
at Jerome, in Yavapai county, the as
sessor and board of supervisors re
fused to assess the property In ac
cordance with the recommendation of
the tax commission, and the matter
was taken to the state supreme court,
where .the tax commission was up
held. It Is said, however, that the
United Verde company, which is dom
inated by former United States senator
W. A. Clark, of Montana, will carry
the question to the United States su
preme court and it is generally be
lieved by lawyers who have looked
into the matter that It will win, owing
to the constitutional conflict between
the assessors and the tax commission
ers, all of whom are constitutional of
ficers, each vested with full authority
to do what the other Is empowered
to do
Tt is amone: the possibilities that all
the mining companies in the state may
refuse to pay their taxes under the
new assessment until the United Verde
case is settled, should It be taken to
the United States supreme court, as
senator Clark, in an Interview at Al
buquerque several days ago, said It
would be V,
Mine Owners "Want to Settle.
The mine operators do not want to
refuse to pay their taxes or have any
other trouble with the state and are
doing all in their power to arrive at
an equitable basis of taxation to be
adhered to or followed In future, while
irf the meantime it is noped the amend
ment to the constitution, correcting
the mistake which causes the conflict,
will b adonted
' At a conference held this week be
tween representatives of the heavy
taxpayers among the mining compan
ies of the state and the assesors and
supervisors of the counties most deep
ly interested in mine taxation, there
was the utmost harmony, all being tde
sirous of doing what was- best for the
state without imposing unjust burdens
upon the mine owners
Mine Operators Proposition.
The mine operators made the fol
lowing proposition which was taken
under advisement and may be em
bodied in whole or in part in a bill
to be submitted to the legislature at
the special session, which governor
Hunt is expected to call soon after

assrssed per acre at the price paid to
the United States government there

upon said mines be assessed by the
state tax commission at the same

Europe Thinks Defeated

isn. army on which the fate of the Ot-
toman empire depended, has been out
generaled and outfought It has made
what is believed to be the last stand
against the victorious Bulgarians.
Grave doubts are expressed in mili
tary circles and repeated even in the
Turkish capital as to whether the rem
nants of the immense army of the sul
tan will make any serious attempt to
hold its line. Foreigners in Constan
tinople are fearful for the safety of the
Christian populations of Turkish towns
and the European powers have taken
steps in this connection by dispatch of
warships to Saloniki, Constantinople
and other Turkish ports for the protec
tion of their citizens. This is the most
pressing question of the moment.
Christians Endangered.
One correspondent m Constantinople
voices the fear of Europeans in that
city that 1 the Turkish retreat from
Tchatalja might result in massacres
and pillage-by what is no longer an
army, but a mob.
Old residents of Constantinople who
know the Turks thoroughly say foreign
warships could afford some protection
at saioniKi. Constantinople and other
ports, but declare the widely scattered
missions and Christian populations are
already seriously endangered.
Bulgnrlans Continue Advance.
The Bulgarian trooDS who have
shown such nash since the opening of J
tne campaign are not JiKeiy to give ue
Turks much time to reorganize. It Is
true they have hundreds of dead and
wounded, both Turks and Bulgarians,
to dispose of. and this must delay -them
somewhat. They had, however, 'similar
difficulties to contend against after
Kirk-Kilisseh and around Adrianople,
but there was not much lull in the
fighting then.
News comes today of the Bulgarians'
occupation of Demotica, thus shatter
ins: any hope the srerrison of Adriano
ple may have had of deliverance from
that quarter.
Other parts of the line of the in
vaders are pulling themselves together
for another soring, -which tbev booe
will definitely put an end to Turkish -j
ruie in Europe.
Armies Advance en Saloniki.
The Servians, having completed the
occupation of Macedonia, are establish
ing civil administrations there and re
leasing some of their troops to go to
the assistance of their allies at Adri
anople and for an attack on Saloniki.
Armies are converging from three
directions on Saloniki.

New York, N. Y-. Nov. 1. When he

from the Bronx, governor Woodrow

leaned over the rail and called to the

INCREASE $1,140,624
El Paso county has a total tax valuation of $40,743,146, an increase of $1,140,
624 over last year, the valuation at that time being $39,6QS522, according to the
tax rolls for the year 1912, compiled by George W Hoffman, county t.x aasesssr
It & estimated by the assessor that the valuation next year will show a $2,000,000
increase. The present increase is attnbuted to added intprdvejnents and enhanced
value of the valley lands.
On the basis of the present valuation, if all the taxes arc collected, the amount
will be $317,651.26. Of this amount the state will receive $11902438, and the
county $198,622.83.
Bl Paso county has 2.797,30 ceres of taxc'ycj Isnds. The state land nnso'd
is not subject to taxation. There are over 6030 property tax payers es the canaty
tax rolls. That figure includes nonresidents and all persons paying taxes.
The total valuation of the properties belonging to the railroad, telegraph and
telephone companies as shown by the tax rolls is $7,144,84.
Before Culberson county was segregated, V" total valuation of the combined
counties was $42,558,576. Culberson county took three million of that amount.
la order to complete the tax rolls Mr. Huffman, with an additional office force,
has been working since January 10 to the present time. From January 10 to
April 20, the assessor was in the field making t be assessments. Before beginning
on the tax rolls, all building permits and transfers of property gathered by th
assessor himself were posted up From August 1 Mr Huffman and his assistants
worked day and night to finish the rolls. With the exception of comparing the
figures, and then submitting the whole to the commissioners court, the work is
finished. A copy will be sent to the state controller.
