Voters of Saff ord for Second
Time Have Determined
To Be Dry
The second local option eleetion
closed in Safford at 6 oclock last
Wednesday evening when the vote
polled said the town must remain
dry The vote stood 79 to 77 two
majority in favor of prohibition
The election went off quietlywith
no arrests nor any particular dis
turbances but each side working
The polls opened early and sev
eral amusing things followed during
the day They closed at 6 in the
evening and the result was announ
ced in less than an hour
One thing that attracted a large
amount of good natured comment
and attention was when twenty
eight women marched from the
Jones Hotel to the polls and de
manded a vote This was refused
them by the board and they left
These ladies had no doubt been mis
led by the opinion of the county at
torney which was written and wrap
ped up in the package of supplies
together with nrintod affidavits for
them to swear in their votes and
which was opened by the election
board The opinion of the county
attorney was that women could vote
and the board bo ruled
This developed opposition and
County Attorney Crosby was sent
for He maintained that the wo
men had a light to vote but the
unanimous opinion of the other at
torneys present was that no one
could vote whose name did not ap
pear on the great register then the
board reversed its first decision and
decided that the name of all voters
must either appear op the regjatr
or thjtlie furnish satisfactory ovi
uuce that he had registered before
a compitent officer Sixteen votes
were sworn in
Some of the ladies felt very much
achieved when they were denied
the nrivelpge pf vpng heir
nainerf veje not on the register and
therefore hadnorjghtto vote Had
they been permitted to do so it
would have made the election illegal
for the purpose of the great register
Is to compel every vote to be cast
This election probably forever
closes the local option question in

about one half year the famous
boot legging cases were finally
disposed of Wednesday when a 20
fine on each offense was inposed by
Judge Shute in the Superior Court
on ten cases and the fines were
These cases will readily be recalled
from the fact that two detectives
from Los Angeles collected the evi
dence and caused the arrests to be
made All were first taken before
the Superior Court but dismissed
for want of jurisdiction New war
rants were immediately served and
all the defendants taken before the
justice of the peace at Central
where they were all excepting one
found guilty and fines imposed
ranging from 50 to 200 The
cases were all appealed and later
the case against Ed Branch was
tried in the Superior Court and a
verdict of guilty was returned and
a fine of 300 imposed An appeal
was taken and the other cases post
poned pending the decision of the
Supreme Court
The Los Angeles detectives were
present at each trial with the evi
dence they had collected and al
though the Supreme Court has not
yet handed down a decision in thee
cases they were finally dismissed on
Wednesday through a plea of guilty
and a fine of 20 each
On Wednesday a demurrer to the
indictments charging rout against
Jos H and Newt Hiiiton and the

Capital Punishment Necessary
for the Proper Protection
Among the subjects recommended
to the Arizona Legislature by Gov
Hunt is the abolition of capital pun
ishment For the benefit of our law
makers we reproduce an article
written for the New York American
by Walter No Thayer who was
warden of Dannemora penitentiary
for seven years
One of the questions now being
agjtated is whether capital punish
ment shall be abolished and life im
prisonment substituted As I have
had some experience with capital
punishment will you kindly permit
me to state my views
For seven years I was warden of
the State Prison at Dannemora and
during that period there were nine
executions Naturally my Dosition
brought me in contact with the
criminal classes of the professional
type as Dannemora is a orison for
men who have served at least wo
previous terms
Capital punishment is intented
as a deterrent of murder Would
life imprisonment have the same
deterrent effect I dont bfclieve it
would Let me try to Drove it
Michigan has abolished the death
penalty When I was attending the
National Prison Congress at Austin
Texas in 1897 I met General Cham
berlain the warden of the orison at
Jackson Michigan He told me of
a murderer sent to his prison for
life This man deliberately killed a
fellow convict before he had been a
a month in prison Shortly after
ward he killed one of the prison of
ficers As he was serving the high
est penalty known to the law noth
ing could be done to him
Kornell Loth of Schenectady
whose execution took place at Dan
nemora while I was in charge told
me that the husband of the women
whom he had murdered by chop
ping her to pieces with an axe gave
him 20 for the job I remarked
that that was a very low price to
receive for killing a person and he
replied that he would kill any one
f6r10 Washe fit to live
Charles N Davis was executed
during my time at Dannemora for
outraging and killing a six-year-old
girl at Cohoes Will any father or
mother say the punishment was too
I was once talking with a man
who was an ardent advocate of the
abolition of- the death penalty- and
neither was able to convince the
other Later during the conversa
tion I inquired after the health of
his son a fine young man He
answered me that he was well but
in business in a tough part of the
city I asked him if -some tough
should kill his son what punishment
should in his estimation be meted
out to him He replied The law
would never have a chance Id kill
him in court Still he would have
thought life imprisonment sufficient
for the murderer Are we not
prone to deal more leniently with a
man who murders some one elses
child or wife than we would be f it
was our own
I am not of a blood thirsty dis
position but 1 believe laws should
be passed making it a capital offense
to attempt to take the life of a
president governor or mayor
I believe the delay in trial con
viction and execution of a murderer
is encouragement to the criminal
