FRIDAY, JANUARY 6, 1911.
IN ANNUAL REPORT.
Arizona's growth and progress is
well set forth in the annual report of
Governor Sloan for the fiscal year
ending June 30, which was made
public this week in a document con
taining thirty-three printed pages.
It is a year's record in which every
citizen can take a just pride it is a
story ot success told in facts and fig
Jtiücatiou at the passage of the
Mag Act and hope of statehood
pressed, the growth in popula
tion in ten years is shown and the
condition of all publie institutions
are manifested as bettered and im
proved. The expenses of the prison
have been decreased by more than
$19,000, while conditions foi the in
mates have been greatly improved.
The asylum for the insane, the in
dustrial school and public buildings
are covered, and it is stated that the
Pioneers' home will soon be opened
Arizona takes pride in her public
school system. The report of the
governor shows that at the Univers
ity, Normal scboois, and the High
schools and Grammar schools in the
various school districts the territory
has more than kept pace with de
mands, has easily met with accom
modations an increase of more than
2,000 in the year, that new schools
have been opened and the corps of
instructors increased, while the
course of study is enlarged and im
proved. Agriculture, horticulture, fruit
growing, irrigation, and the livestock
Industry are all treated' and in ike a
splendid showing oi growth and pro
gress; public highways are improved,
the organization of the National
Guard is completed, the railway
commission and its work is described,
and the most important work of Ari
zona, mining, is shown to have grown
tc a satisfactory extent, although its
activity was to some extent limited
by low prices of metals.
Births exceed deaths, despite the
fact that many come to Arizona as a
health resort, ana after their dis
ease has progressed too far to be
checked or cured, the births number
ing 3,008 and the deaths 3,049, thus
showing that the growth of Arizona
is largely caused by immigration.
The deaths from tuberculosis number
more than Cut), and of these Maricopa
county furnishes more than half.
The financial conditions of Arizona
are shown to be prosperous, her gov
ernment economically conducted, and
her banks to have grown in deposits
and prospered. The territory is
larger, richer, better and more fitted
for further progress in the present
Andrew Carnegie, whose bene
factions amount now to 180 millions
of dollars, has just added a donation
of ten millions of dollars for the
promotion of peace throughout the
world. The nations will continue to
build battleships and levy armies, but
it is impossible that a donation so
munificent shall not have the
influence of its inspiration. The
Se. -retar, f War has ju-t re Uroed

slatted ConjrreM by a eOntidt ntial
document sunt to the House of Re
presentatives stating that this coun
try, is unfit for war, lacking the right
kind of men, guns, ammunition and
fortifications. This confidential re
port is said to be sensational in its
details. In view ot .Mr. Carnegie's
ten million dollar douation to the
v ause of peace, this i court from the
Secretary of War i puliaiiv clash

DISCREPANCY IN ARIZONA
NEW MEXICO BOUNDARY.
The attention of the Era has been
called to an evident discrepancy be
tween the western boundary of New
Mexico and the eastern boundary of
Arizona as fixed by the constitu
tion adopted by the constitutional
conventions of the respective ter
ritories. The constitution of New Mexico
fixes the western boundary of that
territory as the Thirty-Second Me
ridianof Longitude West from vVa-h
iugton. The Washington Meridiai.
is: 76 deg. 33 min. 66.7 sec. west ol
Greenwich and fixing the thirty-second
Meridian west from Washington
as the western boundary of New
Mexico gives the boundary as 108
deg. 33 mm. 56.7 sec. W. Green wich.
The eastern boundary of Arizona
as fixed by our constitutional con
vention is 109 deg. 02 min. 5-J.29 sec,
leaving a gap of 0 deg. 29 min. 02..V.
During ihe week the description ol
the eastern boundary of Arizona, as
fixed by our constitution, and the
western boundary of New Mexico, as
fixed by the New Mexico constitu
tion, has been checked by a compe
tent surveyor of this district, with
the above result. The difference in
the description between the two
boundary lines is computed to be a
gap approximately thirty miies wide,
a strip of "No Man's Land, '' running
north and south between Arizona and
New Mexico. The attention of Dele
gate Cameron is called to the above
discrepancies between the boun
daries of the proposed new states.
Arizona has fixed one Meridian as its
eastern boundary, and New Mexico
has fixed another. If the printed
I copies of the two constitutions are
j correct, there is a discrepancy exist
ing, which, as in the case of Texas
! and New Mexico, will call for a legis
lative enactment to correct. An
, other suggestion is made that the
j strip be set apart as an abiding place
for the strenuous advocates of the
I recall of the judiciary
Representative Hubson of Alabama,
he who sank the old ship in the har
bor entrance at Santiago has intro
duced a bill in Congress for the ap
pointment of a Board of National
Defense, the object of which is to
secure cooperation between the ex
ecutive and legislative branches of
the government with a view to har
mooy in a defensive policy By the
terms of the bill the War Secretaiy
is to be president of the council, and
the other members the Secretary ol
the Navy, the Chairman of the House
Military and Naval Affairs, and also
the Senate and House Finance Com
mittees. The man in Hot Springs, Ark., who
lived thirty-two days without eat.ng
is probably trying to solve the hih
cost of living problem. Also he is in
a fair way, no doubt, to solve the
problem of the low cost of dying.

TO THROW OFF THE YOKE.
The re-u . of the labors of the con
si itutional conv, ntion is the best or
ganic laws ever written for a people
to live under, and 'he people should
realize that the republican politician
is against the adoption of the con
stitution, principally because he fear
the. loss of his office and the oppor
tunity to help the corpor e inter
ests that have controlled the affairs
ot the territory under republican
rule. Ii is up to the people now to
throw off this yoke and become free
and independ nt. The constitution
is good in every section and in the
inierest of tho.-e who have to live
under it. Safford Guardian.
