A FAIR PROPOSITION TO ALL. Tho following correspondence, which speaks for itself, has been in tho possession of tho Guardian for somo time, and tho recent action of certain acuto Bcpublican politicians and ofllco holders of Graham county, makes it very interesting to tho public at this time: Ofllco of District Attornoy. Solomonville, Arizona, April 22, 1895. To tho County Treasurer, tho County Recorder and Probato Judge, of Graham county, Ari- zona. ' Gentlemen: I respectfully direct" your attention to tho follow- lacts and ask your co-operation in "tho matter heroin roferred to: Tho records of tho Boards of Supervisors office, of Graham couifty, Arizona, indicato that there, aro now outstanding against our county unpaid demands to tho amount exceeding 10,000 and it may reach tho sum of 12,500. Tho increase m salaries of county officers on tho first of tho present 3ear, leads mo to fear that within twelve months tho amount of outstanding unpaid demands against tho county will not bo far below 18,000. Demands against tho county havo been sold recently at a discount of twenty-five cents on tho dollar. If this is true now, what will bo tho condition ono year from this timo or at tho end of our present terms of ofllco. It is a serious matter to tho taxpayers and a most serious matter to us as county officials. If tho amount of unpaid demands constantly increases, of courso, just as certain as night follows day, tho discount upon outstanding demands of county increase propoi tionatoly . Instead of receiving tho salary provided by law, you will only demands against tho county which can bo cashed at tho timo for from sixty to soventy per cent on tho dollar, while the difference goes into tho hands of tho monoy lender. Tho official loses it, tho speculator gains it, while tho county pays it all and tho people bear tho burden. This is tho actual fact. Tho law known as tho "Classification Bill" was approved by tho Governor to take effect in thirty days from its approval, which will bo on tho 22nd of April,-, to-day. It has been asserted that on account of certain defects or matters touching its enrollment and final passage, tho law cannot bo entorc ed in tho courts. As that is a for futuro adjudication, I now suggest to each of you, at this timo, that each and all of us abido by tho terms of tho Classification Law as it now is and accept from this date no moro than tho compensation provided by it, no matter what tho judicial decision may bo. Let us mutually agreo to it in advance, sign tho agreement together and filo it with tho propor officer, that it may be binding on all of us alike. It is horcby proposed that no ono of us mako tho reduction alone, but that all of us, in good faith, mako this concession together. Affor all it is not such a sac rifico as you may at first imagine when you considor tho great and rapidly increasing discount which attends tho sale of a demand there is monoy in our county treasury to meot it. By all of us, at this timo entering into tho agreement herein proposed, it will result in a saving to the county during our terms of of about 8,500 or 9,000. Also wo can reasonably expect that at tho end of our present terms that our domands will not bo at tho great discount which we now see. Tho sooner wo can bring our to par, or tho sooner wo can take a step to that ond, the bettor it will bo for all of us, the better it will bo for tho people of tho county, and tho bettor it will bo for all those who contemplate investing in taxable prop. erly ot any kind within tho county. There is now no election contest pending in tho county and wo can easily enter into this agreement, at this timo, of our own volition, without incurring the danger of improper charges being mado against us. Wo represent different political parties, and wo can enter into it voluntarily, without tho heat of a political canvass influencing our act. Most respectfully yours, Wiley E. Jones, Dist. Atty. Graham County. a responsive howl. Tho foregoing lottor, by copy, was delivered to each of he county officials designated abovd It was a fair proposition, and- as it was jcnowninavefcinoMMon miffing nfj a piivate agreement, not before mado public, thai they would accept from tho county, if elected, only ono half the amount allowed in first class counties, it was of courso expected that thoy would accopt tho foregoing proposition at once, and that there would bo no necessity for bringing any action in Graham county to enforce tho Classification Law. None of tho officials addressed mado any response except tho county treasurer, who returned tho following reply which indicates his greived feeling at tho timo of writing it: Office of Frank Dysart, Treasurer Graham County. Solomonville, Apr. 23, 189G. Wiley E. Jones, Esq., District Graham County, A. T. Sir: Your favor of the 22d inst. in regard to tho County classification bill is at hand and contents noted, but as you havo delayed 3'onr suggestion until after you know that tho officers addressed had arranged with your friend W. II. Barnes to test tho validity of tho law referred to and could not not now mako tho arrangement suggested, I am compelled to conclude that you aro only "playing to tho galleries." Very Respectfully, Frank Dysart. It is amusing to note tho foro going letter and then wonder how any ono could bo responsible for Mr. Barnes' employment except thoso who retained him oniThursday night April 12th last during court weok when tho arrangements wore mado at a littlo meeting in the Recorder's office by lamplight, which was attended by the County Treasurer, Recorder, Clerk of tho Board and tho County Assessor. Just what tho terms of tho agreement woro is not known, but at that conference tho employment was mado. On May 2d instant tho District Attornoy prepared and presented to Sheriff Wight a complaint for his signature wherein Sheriff Wight was Plaintiff and Assessor Defendant, asking for an adjudication of the question involved in tho Classification law. Mr. Wight for somo reason not explained, hesitated to sign tho camplamt and bring tho action. Tho District Attorney next morning brought an action for tho County making both Wight and Michelena Defendants, so that tho question could bo brought to a speedy hearing. After consulting with friends Mr. Wight about a weok later, filed a complaint against Mr. Michelena, somewhat similar to the first action proposed by tho District Attornoy. In tho meantime tho Republican heads wore in communication with tho Chairman of the Board of Supervisors, to head off tho District Attorney in somo way and help tho Ropublican officials out of tho holo into which thoy had been placed. Without any poblicity a meeting of tho Board was secretly called, and on last Wednesday morning it met, as Chairman Hill said: "To employ two lawyers to lepresenttho County in tho caso". That it was all fixed and thoy would do it". Tho action of a Ropublican Board hir ing two Republican Lawyers with no limit to their fees or compensation to cut down tho salaries of tho Republican officers of Graham Coun ty is too thin for tho public to swallow. If tho District Attornoy had never mado tho foregoing proposition to tho other officials, and had never filed any action upon their refusal to accopt tho proposal, tho Board novor would havo attempted to displace him in that way. The District Attornoy and Judgo Moorman havo boon industriously working upon tho caso, havo collected about Nenoty decisions upon it and prepared an elaborate brief thereon Both of thorn declare emphatically that tho Classification Law will stand, taking effect on April 22d last, and tho District offers to wager upon it anything from a straw hat to 100.00. Ho says that "there will bo dust on tho sea beforo tho case shall bo Jobbed in tho interest of Ropublican officials, and beforo Graham Coun. ty shall bo permitted to pay ono cent out of hor treasury in that direction."

Motion mado to employ M. J. Egan and J.H. Kibboy as attorneys in tho casoof Arthui Wight against Pedro Michelena brought under tho classification law. Tho District Attornoy mado a vigorous protest orally against said proposed employment, alleging that he had carefully examined the caso and collected between 80 and 100 decisions upon tho matter and had prepared a thorough brief and that tho caso was ready now for argument beforo the court at tho earliest opportunity. Judgo Moorman also appeared beforo the board and stated that ho had worked earnestly upon tho caso with tho District Attorney -and from the many authorities collected, was fully prepared for tho hearing and argument of tho caso. Tho District Attornoy filed tho following protest in writing with tho Board, which was entered upon tho minutes. Solomonville, May 15th 1895, To tho Honorable board of Supervisors, Graham County Arizona. Gentlemen: I hereby protest against tho Boardemploying counsel in the caso to test tho law known as tho County Classification law, as tho same was drawn by mo, was subsequently awarded and passed and is now a law, that I havo fully prepared and collected authorities in tho case, I and that the employment of counsel is aiccaicss expenditure of the peoplo's money. 1 h9 made a nrminsitinn t.n nfhnr onnnfv nflifl!!' - -- ---.. v to accept only tuo compensation provided by the Classification law, and I now predict that tho law will stand. Wiley E. Jones. Dist. Attorney, Graham Co. -Ariz. Tho District Attornoy declared that ho would enjoin tho Board from tho payment of any thing from tho County Treasury under said proposed and pretended employment, also that at tho July meeting ho would enjoin tho Board from tho payment of salaries abovo tho sums specified undor tho classification law. After considerable discussion and sovoral warm words passing to and fro, in which tho District Attornoy was criticised by tho Chairman for bringing tho action, a voto was taken upon tho motion to employ counsel which resulted as follows: Hill and Hays voting "yes," and Bennett voting "no". The Ropublican officials wero elated. Tho Clerk was instructed to for tho completion of tho hospital coutract vacated, by tho death of County Physician Coffman, Dr. R. M. Dudley to conduct the hospital until tho bids aro opened in July. Board adjourned sine die. ijolomonvlllo XtiiinlIInK. On Sunday last Sheriff Wight arrested J. P.

Adjt. Gen.

Tho request for troops came from Willcox, and from a dispatch responding, thero is no doubt serious troublo is expected. CoL, Ward refused to say anything tonight, merely reaffirming tho statement that ho was confident that thfr person making the request for-troops was a reliablo party, and ono n't likely to bo influonccd by idle rumors. It is known that a largo number of miners havo gontt into tho Dragoon Mountains sine tho opening of spring, and as fow aro armed it is possible massacre has taken placo. Capt Pritchcr is under orders tr make a force march and to send reports of the actual situation as soon as ho reaches tho grounil wlicro tho conflict occurred.
