l A WIDE OPEN TOWN.
A wide open town is Phoenix at
i present. Gambling halls arc cheered
\ by girls and liquor is sold in the same
room, thus embracing three great ovijs
under one big tent. It is not diffi
cult to answer the question “where is
your hoy tonight V Those affairs can
be regulated by the city. It requires
no additional territorial laws to ex
clude the songstresses from saloons
and to regulate gambling, either thro'
high license or by segregating it from
the salpon. The present state ot as
fairs (Joes not appeal to men of family
to locate here. —Enterprise.
The time has come when the com
monest, sense of decency demands that
“wide open towns’’ should be p* i
nii'.ted no longer in Arizona, The
spectacle of tip* “wide open” saloons
in Phoenix, wlxn* < ambling of every
character is carried on and where the
piano girls lure the unwary to the
gambling tables for play, to »he bar
for b'-er and to the wineroom, is .a
standing disgrace to Arizona Such
flagrant exhibition of loos? morals at
qne tipie was to he expected.in isolated
pioneer mining camps, but in Phoenix,
the Capital of the Territory, where
tfhousapds of strangers come from the
east every year to reccivo the benefit,
of Arizona’s climate, such a displ.iy of
unrestrained machinations of the
devil is inexcusable. By tjjese “wide
open” pitfalls Arizona is advertised as
possessing a very low standard of
morals, to our manifest injury.
The pr. ss of Arizona should 'ake
this matter in hand now and drive
this “wide open’’ business from public
' .view. Bulletin.
Investigation of the causes, effects
and means of prevention of for. at fires
in the west will lie carried on this
summer In Washington, Oregon, Cali
sornia, Arizona. New Mexico, Utah,
Colorado. Wyoming, Moutana, Idaho,
and South Dakota. Besides field
study, design»d chiefly to discover
means of preventing the evil, the
Division is making a historic record
of all important fires which have oc
curred in the United States since
1754. While yet incomplete, this in
dioates that the annual recorded loss
by forest burnings in the United
States is, at the very lowest, $20,000,-
000. It will probably run far above
this sum, as the Pacific coast states
have been only partially examined.

holders in an insurance company to
live up to the contract of insurance.

j the amount of the policy, and the j
superior court gave' her a judgment,
The supreme court has reversed the
lower court. The contract of insur
ance shows that one of the terms of
insurance was that the jnsured wculd
within sixty days of loss, 61e proof of
the loss with the company, and the
evidence showed that this had not
been compiled with. The court hnlds
that a contract of insurance is as bind

United Marshal Griffiths does not
.believe that federal office holders
should attend ihe Republican con
ventions as delegates and says so
frankly to a reporter for the Republi -
can. Mr: Griffith has a proper s use
of the proprieties. It is to be hoped
that other office holding republicuns
in the territory will adopt this view.
The national committee dees not ap
prove of the appointment of federal
officers as delegates, and if the repub

much more consideration at the hands
