LEGISLATURE ST
PHIENLIIITIIIG
(Continued From Iage 1.5
Senators began to drift out of the
chamber and to confer with members or
the house. President Cunniff went over
and sat by speaker Linney. whispering
confidences into his ear Soon thereafter
the house went into executive session.
It was more than an hour before
the gallery was opened and the attaches
were admitted back inside the house
chamber. The senate then admitted the
public, and a few minutes later a con
current resolution was introduced by
C. B. Wood, chairman of the committee
appointed several days ago "to expedite
business."
Agree To Stick.
This rpenlnfinn Wa to the effect that
the legislature remain in session till
the governor took action on the penal
code. When it was put to a vote, sen
ator Hughes was alone in his opposi- I
tion. The majority of the house mem
bers had agreed to it Most of the
employes were discharged. Only the
reading clerks and a few stenographers
are, retained. The stenographers are
kept partly for the purpose oi cuwmus
up the work on hand.
Legislators Leaving.
A number of the lawmakers left to
dav isn-thirds of the members of
both -houses are still here, however, in
order to take up anything at a mo
ment's notice. Those who are gone are
not beyond call, and will be brought
back if their presence is necessary.
Graham's mine tax amendment to
senate bill No. 3 was finally agreed to
by the senate, after the most stubborn
i ly fought contest that has character
I ied any session of the present legls
1 lature. It provides that producing
. mines shall be assessed on four times
their net output plus 12 1-2. percent of
i the gross and the full value of physical
lmnrovements. Under its nrOViaions the
mines of Arizona will be assessed for
nearly tl3e.wo.000 this year, as against
$45,000,000 in 113.
Ulor Tax IlIaPHMslen.
There was much discussion in the
senate over the measure.
Wood took a shot at socalled "pro
gressle" newspapers that have been
advocating the Graham amendment.
Worsley also stated that be was vot
,ing for the amendment against his
batter judgment. 'There will come
a day of retribution," he declared.
vi hen the senate approved the San
Irancisco fair appropriation, house
bill Iv, by cutting it to appropriate
$50,00 .for San- -JPranetooo and $35,000
fn. San Di.trn WflrsUv mad another
violent attack on San Diego, which he '
i dmounced as a scab city. The wont
scab" constituted about half of Wors-
lej's talk. The exposition is to be a
scab fair, he said. He pronounced San
Diego s request for an appropriation a .
piece of "monumental audacity."
CoMHty Seat Meaanre.
The two houses finally came to an
agreement on the county seat bill. It
is satisfactory to most of the Cochise
county representatives in the senate
and to senator Sims. ttoDens, ot t,o-
cowe, opposed th compromise to the
last.
All by himself, senator H. R. Wood
signed a minority conference report
on this bill. Tneiaajorlty report was
signed b senators Sims and Willis, and
representatives Murphy, Ball and
Cocke. This report was adopted, over
the opposition or m. k. woot, ounni",

express companies, was finally dis
posed of when a conference committee
report to the effect that the house ac
cept the senate amendments, was
adopted. The amendments were of
minor importance.
Freight Rates.
The senate refused to concur in the
removal from the corporation commis
sion code of the paragraph fixing IS
cents a ton mile as the maximum
freight rate to be charged in this state.
There a as little opposition to the mo
tion that the senate not concur. C. B.
Wood, Breen and Roberts were named
as a conference committee. Lynch.
Maddock and Murphy were appointed
from the house.
Word was received from governor
Hunt that he had signed senate bill

Says It Is Divorced From All
Other Oil Companies.
Chicago, 111, May 16. Absolute di
vorce of the Standard Oil company, of
Indiana, has been effected from all
other oil companies, according to J. L.
Drake, vice president of the corpora
tion, who testified in the ouster suit
brought by the state of Missouri. The
company seeks to remain in Missouri.
He testified that he formerly was a
director in the Standard Oil company,
of New Jersey, but when he became vice
president of the Indiana company, his
former relations ceased.
"Our business in Missouri and else
where is absolutely independent and
we take no dictation or suggestion
from any other company," said Xr.
Drake. "Should we be allowed to re
main lu Missouri we are prepared te
spend $3,000,000 to extend our business
so that we may compete with other
companies."
The hearing was transferred to Chi

Senator Shafrolh, of Colorado, plead
ed for IB minutes jesterday with sec
retary Lane at the interior department
reclamation heating to sue the people
of his state. The senator proposed in
this v.ay to get a determination of the
government's rights to use the waters
of the Rio Grande to fill the Elephant
Butte dam for the irrigation of 20.000
acres in Mexico and 100,000 acres in
Texas and New Mexico.
Senator Shafroth contended that Col
orado had a right to construct reser
voirs which would otherwise flow into
the Rio Grande and that the govern
ment had no right to stop them for the
benefit of the Rio Grande project in
Texas. New Mexico and Mexico.
"It will make the biggest scandal ever

and spends some several million dollars '
constructing the Elephant Butte dam
and then finds out that it does not have
title to enough water to fill it." said '
tne senator. "He cant sue the United

The secretary nad no comment to
