Barnes' amendment allowing sub sidies after a two third vote in favor thereof, came up. Norris sought to amend by limiting to two thirds of the qualified electors. Birnes accepted the amendment and withdrew his own Alexander moved to limit the voting to electors and properly owners. Herring supported the subsidy under proper restrictions, and reflect ed severely upon the strangling effect of the Harrison Act on all progress. Arizona's people will strangle the constitution if that instrument tries to strangle the people. Taxpayers can be trusted to vote on improper subsi dies. Barnes opposed the limit of voting to property owners. It was the con sumer not the taxpayers who ultimate ly paid the tax. Consequently the consumer ought to vote, whether be owned property or not. Siuith opposed any limit on the voter. Alexander's amendment was lost. Norris' amendment was carried. Herring moved a section prohibit ing the legislation of lotteries, gamb ling or games of chance. Williams moved to limit the articles to lotteries only. Barnes opposed the section as out of place; alto AniWson. Alexan der supported it. The section was lost. Oraml Jury I.l.

All of her clothes had been burned off on one ride and her hair was nearly re moved by the flames, her eyebrows were completely burjied off. She was immediately cared for and nothing serious is anticipated, although her burns are painful. Had it not been for her son she would probably have been fatally burned. Ben F.

A case came up in Detroit wherein a Chinaman was ordered back to China who had crossed from Canada. Tin Chinaman was brought before tin court on a writ of habeas corpus am: the judge decided that the Cliinamai. was wrongfully held and should be re turned to Canada, The most suitling part of tho pro ceedings is contained in the following later dispatch from Washington: "Acting Secretary Spaulding toduj directed the collector at Detroit, Mich to return to Canada the Chinaman whom United States District Judge Swan yeterday decided to have come from Canada. This decision the ex act text of which was unknown, yes terday by the treasury department has created some confusion as it overturns the practice of the department and the opinion of the .Attorney General on the meaning of the phrare'whence he came."
