Navajo blankets are going to be cheaper in the near fu ture because of an economic pinch among the" Navajo Indians, according to present indications, the low price of sheep and wool being hard on the Indians who subsist cheifly on sheep. With the market for wool weak, the Indians are converting their wool into blankets, creating an abnormal sup ply, which is driving the price down. The situation is expected to ease up in the fall, when the pinon nut crop is harvested. REAL LIVE ARIZONA SHERIFF INTERESTS BOSTON SEEK TO LOWER FREIGHT RATES ON ARIZONA HAY Relief to starving cattle in Ariz ona as well as for the farmers of the Salt River valley is sought in an ap plication before the Arizona Corpora tion commission seeking a reduction of 2o per cent m the intra-state freight rate on hay. Hay growers who attended the hear ing testified that they would be bene fited by hay movements which the re duced rate would bring, and cattle men gave evidence to show that cheap hay is sorely needed at this time for range stock of drought stricken dist ricts. Before the recent advance of 25 per cent imposed by the Interstate Com merce commission the rate on hay from Salt River valley points to Tuc son was $5 per ton. The present rate is $6.25. The cattlemen are seeking to have the old rate temporarily re instated. NAMES OF PADONED MEN NOT TO BE MADE PUBLIC Names of paroled and pardoned prisoners from the state penitentiary at Florence will not be given out in the future, according to the announce ment of W. J. Galjraith, attorney gen eral, on his return Sunday to Phoenix from Florence, where the board of pardons and paroles held a two days' session. Galbraith said that the ruhngwas made at the request of the prisoners, one of their number appearing before the board and urging the members to aid them in making a clean start He said that the men after having served the punishment dealt them by law. had paid the price of their mis take. v "Do not keep alive the fact that they are lawbreakers, urged the con vict. The board agreed to suppress the names, a policy that has heretofore been in effect in the matter of paroles and pardons from the industrial school at Fort Grant. An 18-year-old boy from Pima county, who was in prison was paroled to the Fort Grant insti tution at the meeting, where 72 cases were considered. There will be no further meetings of the board until September. Galbraith said. Of the number of men who came before the board at its last session this summer, 16 receiver paroles and in two cases paroles were revoked and the prisoners returned to prison. All but two of the many matters that me to the attention of the board were disposed of and these two will re quire detailed investigation. o HYDROPHOBIA SKUNK BITES COWMAN NEAR BENSON Bitten bv a hydrophobia skunk, which attacked him while sleeping on the ground, John W. Miller, a cow- n, is en route to El Paso where r-e will take the Pasteur treatment. Miller, who was night herding a bunch of cattle, had placed his tar paulin and bed on the ground at a point several miles from Benson, pre pared to spend the night there. Upon going to bed the cowman says he smelled a skunk, which caused him to cover his head with his tarpaulin. He slept through the night without molestation and upon awakening Sat urday morning, as he threw the cover from his head, was attacked by the skunk. The animal fastened its teeth in Miller's lower lip and in tearing loose its hold, the lip was badly lac erated. After killing the skunk, Mil ler rode to Benson and took the first train for El Paso. He took the body of the skunk with him for examination by Dr. Hugh White, physician in charge of the Pasteur Institute of that place. Sheriff Robert Lee Newman, of Nav ajo county, Arizona, put into Boston yesterday, sombrero, khaki knee breeches and all, on a man hunt that has led him a long crooked trail from "God's country." In Everett yester day, with the assistance of Chief of Police Hill, he "lassoed" his man and as soon as the extradition fight is o,ver starts back with the prisoner chained to him, Arizona fashion, on a four-day railroad jaunt to the Navajo county jail and justice. The prisoner now in the custody of the Massachusetts State Police, is wanted back in the cattle country, ac cording to Sheriff Newman, for forg ery. The warrant for his arrest in the sheriff's pocket charges Preston Simms, a half Negro and half Mexi can, with forging checks for $390, $100 and $800, respectively, on the Jen nings Auto company, the Ford Auto company, and the Round Valley bank, all of the city of Holbrook, Ariz. The money involved in the capture is hardly worthy of the effort and expense to get the prisoner. Be sides Sheriff Newman says he likes the wide open spaces better than the cowpaths of Boston streets. But out in Arizona, when the sheriff says he's going after a man, he doesn't gener ally come back without him, is about the way this veteran of the old school of sheriffs puts his last man-hunt case Boston Post. STATE LEGION POSTS TO MEET IN PRESCOTT The annual convention of the Ariz ona Chapter of the American Legion will be held m Prescott, August v the convention to be composed of the! delegates from all the posts in Ariz ona. o SECRETARY HALL REFUSES TO CALL SPECIAL ELECTION Secretary of State Hall in a letter to the attorney general made it quite plain mat tne petition nieu agamsi house bill No. 83 has blocked the ef fort to hold a special election next November to determine whether the state shall guarantee bonds of private irrigation projects. The letter was in answer to a communication from the attorney general in which he declared that, in his opinion, tne secretary oi state should disregard the referendum petition directed against paragraph 4 of house bill 83 on the ground that it amounted to a "referendum oí referendum."

In reaching his decision, becretary Hall points out that the opinion of the attorney general dealt with house hill 83 as a whole, whereas the lef- erendum was directed at section 4 only and calls attention to the fact that the lower house recognized that 8 referendum could be filed against the section mentioned and placed an em ergency clause to the bill, which Secretary Hall, was stricken irom tne measure by the senate, becretary clause, for some reason not known to Hall, in his reply, says: "I can find nothing in your opinion as to why I should not obey the con stitutional mandates and submit the referendum against section 4 of house bill 83 to the people at the next gen eral election, and at the same time submit the amendment to the constitu tion as proposed in house bill 93, with the exception of section 4 of said bill. I do not see houw I can refuse to obey a constitutional mandate concerning my official duties, even though sup ported by your official opinion." Secretary Hall advises thope who think he is not performing his duty properly to "institute proceedings at ence." o- There has been much trouble ia the past arising from trailing sheep from the northern ranges to the win ter ranges in the south, and but few know just what the law is on the sub ject.

The present rate on wool from Cal ifornia terminals to New York is $1.66 1-2 per hundred and this rate it is proposed to cut to íii. me present rate from Kingman to New York is $2.73 and from Maricopa to New York, $3.33. In its petition of protest to the L C C, the Arizona commission points out: That wool growing is one oi ne principal industries of Arizona. It is a matter of common knowledge that practicallv all of the wool shipped from Pacific coast terminals is import ed from Australia and New Zealand and other foreign countries, and to permit the continuance of existing high rates from Arizona- and inter mediate points between the coast terminals and allow substantial re ductions in the Pacific coast rates would have the effect of defeating the The treasury department reports that in Arizona $2,780,166 was collect ed from income and profits taxes for 1 purpose of the emergency tariif on last year.
