Osborn, three-time loser, swaggered into the Democratic gubernatorial primary two years ago, he engaged in no small amount of bluster and bombast. His formal announcement said many things which will make a gigantic dish of crow for Mr. Osborn to eat in the approaching campaign. “Contrary to the defensive claims of those who lack the will or the ability to exercise them,” Osborn said with chracteristic egotism, not unmixed with sarcasm, his principal stock in trade, “the governor of Arizona has tre mendous powers. Much of his authority is specifically set out by statute, but his inherent powers are even greater than his statutory powers.” That is what Sidney P. Osborn said in his announce ment for governor two years ago. And some 50,000 voters believed him. It must have been the “inherent” power, mentioned in his announcement, he sought to weild when he demand ed. in his inaugural address, the resignation of all com mission members and department heads. Certainly such authority wasn’t “specifically set forth by statute” because the commissioners and department heads whose terms haven’t expired continue to serve effi ciently in their respective capacities. It must have been another burst of “inherent” power which gave Gov. Osborn the “courage” to “oust” two in dustrial commissioners. Certainly such authority wasn’t “specifically set forth by statute” because the State Supreme Court ruled that the governor had grossly exceeded his authority in seeking to remove the commissioners for political reasons. After that happened, a wail of anguish rose from the executive offices. Frustrated in his hitleristic moves, the governor railed and ranted at the distinguished mem bers of the state’s highest tribunal. Squelched, and with his ears neatly pinned back, the governor was anything but the blustering promiser of the preceding campaign. He wailed to high heaven about the total lack of authority reposed in a chief executive. No longer is he boasting—as he did in his campaign announcement —that: “When I tell you thes things, I speak with the kowledge that a governor who is so de sirous is not without the means—but he must have cour age to do it!” It was Woodrow Wilson who sid: “Big men grow; little men swell up.” • Mr. and Mr*.

A Compendium of Kpy] Arizona Political gteCtfl CommenL^^g^jg^ PHOENIX, May 29. —Renewed promises of support have been giv en ex Gov. R. C. Stanford, it is learned from usually reliable sources, if he will cast his candi dacy for the State Supreme Court. Just when it was thought the planned "purge” of the state’s highest tribunal had been shelved for the time being, persons close to the ex governor and former Maricopa county jurist began mak ing inquiries of possible support for his candidacy for the bench. It is an open secret the Osborn organization, from the governor down to the lowest jobholder, has been planning a purge of the court since Its ruling In the Industrial ] commission case. At that time. Gov. Osborn Issued a public state ment excoriating the court be cause it refused to uphold his at tempted political ouster of two commissioners. Several Phoenix attorneys say they have been approached by Osbornites with a promise of state administration backing if they would oppose .Chief Justice A. C. Lockwood. In each instance the of fer was declined. Judge Stanford is said to have rejected the suggestion of his can didacy when it first was made sev eral months ago. He reportedly said he would not lend his name to any ’‘spite’’ maneuver. Longstanding friends of the kindly ex-governor refuse to be lieve he can be persuaded to help Osborn wreak vengeance on the supreme court. • • • A detonation as loud as the ex plosion of a two-ton bomb rever berated along the political rlalto this week when word filtered from Florence that a campaign kitty was being collected from employees at the state prison. Although lacking verification, as such reports usually are. It was said similar campaign collections have been started among em ployee at other Institutions di rectly under control of the gover nor. Information on prison em ployes' kitty came close on the heels of the public demand by James Smith, Osborn appointee to the State Highway Commission, that reputed collections from high way department employes be re turned. Jones and McKinney supporters gleefully spread the word that the Osborn organization was caught doing the very thing it was pub licly accusing others of doing. • • • Considerable consternation was caused in the growing ranks of congressional hopefuls this week over the report that Wilson T. Wright. !<tate corporation com missioner. has "just about deci ed” to enter the race for one of the Democratic nominations. Since hiß entry on the state political stage in 1932, when he beat the veteran Mit Simms for the Democratic nomination for corporation commissioner. Wright has been a potent vote-getter. He won renomination in 1938 by a NOTICE Pursuant to Section 54-603, Arizona Code, Annotated 1939, as amended, notice is hereby given that on Monday, June 15. 1942, at eight (8) o'clock P.

A former postmaster and city clerk at Globe, immediate past commander of the United States Spanish War Veterans, Wright probably has a larger personal acquaintanceship throughout the state than any other candidate for congress. Gov. Osborn's recent plaint that a chief executive in Arizona lacks powers sufficient to effectively dis charge his duties has come back to plague him. Two years ago. Gov. Osborn’s announcement contained this state ment: “The governor of Arizona has tremendous powers. Much of his authority is specifically set out by statute, but his inherent pow ers are even greater than his statutory powers. "1 will accept the responsibili ties of the office. And I will ac cept responsibility for government expenditures, too.” • * • Anticipated for some time, form al announcement of the candidacy of Warren Peterson, state tax com missioner, is being made today.

In recognition of his services he is now seeking a term in his own right. * * • Reports were circulated within the week that Albert M. Sanies. U. S. district Judge at Tucson, con templates retirement. Speculation followed on a likely successor. Dopesters immediately decided that should the recommendation for appointment rest with U. S. Sen. Ernest W. McFarland, the berth go to Howard C. Speak man of the Maricopa county su perior bench. Judge Speakman, recognized as one of the most able jurists in the state, and Sen. McFarland are for mer fellow Oklahomans. Judge Speakman played a major role in sending his personal and political pal to the U. S. senate. Judge Dave W. King, highly capable occupant of the federal lifhch in the northern district of Arizona, received his appointment op recommendation of ex-U. S. Sen. Henry F. Ashurßt. * * • Still another name was added this week to the growing list of potential candidates for the Demo cratic nomination for state treas urer.
