DELEGATES RETURN FROM
MASONIC GRAND LODGE
Mr and Mrs W C D Cochran H
D DuBois and D J Kennedy returned
Friday from Tucson where Mr Du
Bois and Mr Cochran attended the
annual session of the Masonic grand
lodge which met In that city last
week aa delegates from Safford
lodge No 16
They report an unusually Interest
ing and well attended session The
question of building a Masonic home
came up and after a thorough Inves
tigation it was found that while the
money is available for that purpose
there would be no guests for a home
and that under these conditlous It
would be better to keep the fund on
interest rather than put it Into a
building for which there Is no Im
mediate need
Had the building of a home at this
time been found necessary Safford
would in all probability been chosen
as the location as it had the support
of all the lodges In the south and
east of the state
The trustees of the Stewart estate
located at Oracle Arizona offered

COUNTY
TO ELECT
-
3HT
NUMBER 5
NEW
SUPERVISOR
PHOENIX Every county in Ariz
ona must elect three new supervisors
at the next general election and
there will be no hold over supervisors
This is the interpretation which has
been placed upon tho new supervisor
law by W J Galbralth attorney gen
eral
In an opinion handed down Friday
Galbralth rules that it Is mandatory
upon all counties to divide the coun
ty Into three districts and to elect
supervisors for each of these districts
Heretofore the district plan has been
optional
There is said to be Intense Inter
est over this question In Gila and
Cochlso counties and regardless ot
the attorney generals opinion a
Is almost certain that proceedings
will be brought to test the law
which waa enacted by tho last leg
islature
The attorney generals opinion Is In
response to threo Inquiries as fol
lows
1 It Is obligatory upon the boards
of supervisors to divide tholr several
counties Into supervisoral districts
2 May a county be divided Into su
pervisoral districts ot unequal value
and population
3 When a county Is divided does
the office ot the hold over supervisor
expire
Answer to Inquiry No 1
The amendment to Paragraph 2401
In Chapter 45 Session Laws 1921
makes It obligatory upon tho boards
of supervisors to divide their several
counties into three supervisoral dis
tricts each which districts shall bo
numbered respectively Districts one
two -and three -
Answer to Inquiry No 2
Paragraph 2401 as amended pro
vides that the supervisors shall divide
their several counties Into three su
pervisoral districts each which dis
tricts shall be numbered respectively
Districts one two and three and they
ill all define the boundrles and limits
of each district so tar as possible
and shall make such division in such
manner that the said districts shall
be as nearly equal In population and
assessed valuation of property as is
possible
This provision of the law must bo
follewed by the board of supervisors
and when they shall have subdivided
the county the presumption is that
they liavo subdivided the county into
threo equal parts as nearly as is pos
sible and in the absence ot fraud
their action must bo deemed sufficient
and final
Answer to Inquiry No 3
We are of the opinion that tho su
pervisor elected to the four years term
under the provision ot Paragraph 2400
holds such four year term of office
subject to tho contingency that tho
county may bo divided Into supervi
soral districts before the expiration
