WHY THIS SILENCE?
From Arizona Gazette-
The constitution of the State of Arizona declares in unmistakable
language that Fred T. Colter may not at this time be elected gov
ernor of this state. This feature of the constitution is known to Can
didate Colter, has always been of the knowledge of Governor Hunt
(who would be the beneficiary in the event that Colter receives the
highest number of votes in the November election) and was known
to each and every member of the democratic state executive com
mittee at the time of meeting last week. Notwithstanding1 this know
ledge on the part of those in' charge of the affairs of the democratic
party at the meeting of the party council the candidacy of Fred T.
Colter was endorsed without a word of explanation to the partv
voters, who are demanding that their candidate be eligible to the
office for which he asks their suffrage.
In the event Colter beats Campbell the republicans will not con
test. The only contest they could make would be to have Colter
declared ineligible, in which event Campbell would not be seated, but
Hunt would remain in bffice. There is no dispute as to this. The
law is explicit. Hunt would keep the office for the entire term. The
situation, then, in the event Colter is elected, is this:
Hunt would let him take his seat and the republicans would not
oppose him. However, hisfirst official act that happened to be of
importance to some one would cause the person affected to raise the
question of his eligibility and there would be no question as to what
the court would decide. .
For instance, some bonding' company might be affected by the
action of the governor, or financial interests might be involved,
which would necessitate unquestioned legality of procedure. In many
ways his eligibility would be brought up and a court decision re
quired, which would return George W. P. Hunt to his old seat.
Have the party managers and their candidate solved the problems
by which the constitution the supreme law of the state may be
evaded? If they have any such knowledge why do they hesitate to
enlighten the voters, who are demanding to know? The voters will
decline to be led blindly by a set) of politicians in whom they have
little confidence. They wish to know by what means Candidate Col
ter, in the event of his election, expects to hold his seat, which the
constitution plainly says he may not do. '
Why this silenc on the part of the party leaders and their can
didate? In the only public statement that) he made since his nomination
(which statement was made in the leading republican paper in the
state) Candidate Colter made light of his ineligibility; declared there
was nothing in it and assumed full responsibility, relieving State
Chairman Stoneman and the party council as then constituted of
taking any action looking to establishing the eligibility of the party
candidate. The new state committee has met, organzed and en
dorsed the candidacy of Candidate Colter without a word of explana
tion to the voters, who are left to go it blindly and follow the lead
of a party minority, who are forcing the majority to accept a situ
tion that is highly objectionable to them and which, however it
terminates, will be to the disadvantage of the greater number of the
The election of Fred T. Colter at the polls in November means but
one thing the continuation of George Wiley Paul Hunt in the guber
natorial chair for two years. This is known to Hunt and HAS BEEN
KNOWN BY HIM EVER SINCE THE BILL ENACTED AT THE
LAST REGULAR SESSION OF THE LEGISLATURE, WHICH IN
CREASED THE SALARY OF THE GOVERNOR, BECAME A LAW.
At the time Fred T. Goiter, a member of the senate that enacted thatv
law, expected to be and was an active candidate for the democratic
nomination with the full knowledge of George Wiley Paul Hunt, whose
support had been asured to him.
George Wiley Paul Hunt was president of the convention which
drafted the constitution of the state of Arizona. No man in Arizona
Is more familiar with that document than is he. At the time he
promised Fred T. Colter his support for the democratic nomination
GEORGE WILEY PAUL HUNT KNEW THAT COLTER WAS IN
ELIGIBLE AND THAT HIS ELECTION WOULD MEAN THE CON
TINUATION OF HIMSELF IN OFFICE FOR TWO YEARS MORE.
There is no question of the law. Here is one point upon which
there is no division, even among lawyers. The failure of an election
In November, which, would be the result in event that Colter receives
the highest number of votes, means the continuation of Hunt in office
for two years.
Why -are the party leaden and Candidate Colter silent on the
question of his eligibility?

dage journeyed to the country south
of Seligman the latter part of last
week and returned home Tuesday with I
a nice young buck. The deer was the
result of a shot from the rifle of Mr. '
Murphy and had it not been for a1
poor shell in the gun at the right
time, Mr. Brundage would have se-j
cured his buck. This last is Mr. Bon
dage's personal statement as regards
why he got away, but all of his friends
say that he stood still on the bank of
the little lake and pumped all of his !
shells out of the gun, under the im-1
presion that he was killing deer all j
around him, but when he came to, he I
found that not a single shell had been
exploded. It's hard lines to have this '
occur, but all of the old time hunto b I
teljf us that this is a common occur-'
rence; that all beginners have to pass
the "buck fever" stage before he can
hope to be able to see a deer through
the sights and pull the trigger with
intent to kill.
"Ted" Carter was one of the for
tunate deer hunters of the first of the
week, returning from the country near
Pica east of here with a beautiful
young buck. Ted was good to all of
his friends by seeing that they shared
a goodly portion of the kill.

CHROME ORE WANTED
The government is in need of
chrome ore and the buyers of ore that
will run in excess of 38 per cent oxide.
Chromic oxide will pay $1.25 per unit,
It is possible that Arizona may pro
duce this metal, as it has practically
all the metals somewhere within Its
borders.There is considerable iron ore
in this county, but so far there has
been no supply of chrome found. The
ore is usually easily mined, and if
close to transportation should net a
good sum per ton.
STUDY OF THE PAST
The chains of the mind are not brok
en by any form of ignorance. The
chains of the mind are broken by un
derstanding. And so far as men are
unduly enslaved by the past it is by
understanding the past that they may
hope to be freed. But, secondly, it is
movement which did not draw inspir
ation from the knowledge or the ideal
ization of the past." Gilbert Mur
