County Seat Removal
The biennial county seat removal bill
has bobbed up again in the legislature,
with an emegency clause attached to it.
This county' has not yet advanced to
the poiut where it is neccessary, to the
masses thereof, to either divide the co
unty or remove the county seat for
economically transacting the public
business. The scheme is simply to force
the divison of the county on a compro
mise so as to provide a certain set of
Douglas and Bisbee politicians with
lucrative official positions disregarding
the pockets of the taxpayers entirely.

Bowie Bank Was
"Talked to Death"
PHOENIX, Feb. 3 Because the
Bowie Bank and Trust Company was
"talked to death" and a run was being;
made on the institution. Cashier G. J.
Armstrong, locked the safe, closed the
bank building and took the next train
for El Paso. The reasons for thc sud
den closing of the institution were set
forth in a letter from Armstrong to
State Auditor J. C. Callaghan yester
day. In his letter Armstrong says that the
bank was one of the strongest in the
state, but that enemies of the institu
tion circulated reports as to its condi
tion. Heavy withdrawals, which prac
tically amounted to a run on Friday,
followed. In view of these circum
stances Armstrong said, he thought
that the best thing to do was to close
the bank and leave town. Armstrong:
said nothing in his letter as to whether
or not he expected to return to Bowie.
Deputy State Auditor James B. Or
mond and Assistant Attorney General
George Harben are at Bowie, and are
investigating I lie condition of the bank.
While no statement has been issued as
yet. Deputy Ormond, in a telephone
message to Auditor Callaghan yester
day said that he thought that the de
positors were well protected, and that
the affairs of the institution would be
adjusted without serious loss.

due entirely to local circumstances and
do not in any way reflect banking con-
ditions in the state. ' said Auditor Cal-
