The Legislative Mill.
With the air surcharged with war the senate last week took up Senator Campbell’s bill pro viding for compulsory military training in the high schools, and the bill was recommendad to pass. Just how the house will feel about war remains to be seen when the bill comes before them. Gov. Campbell slipped a veto on the proposition of exempting the Lowell estate at Flagstaff from taxation. He based his veto on constitutional grounds. The governor signed S. B. 4 amending the penal code relating to lewdness; S. B. 8 creating a game refuge in Graham county; House Roll 24 relating to the establishing and maintenance of high school districts; House Roll 25 appropriating SIO,OOO for the Northern Arizona Fair. The house put in all its time last week fighting over the ap propriation bill, and the mon strosity was finally passed with everybody opposed to it, but vot ed favorably to get it out of sight. The Roberts bill making the second conviction for bootlegging a felony is now ready for the governor’s signature, and it provides a penalty of from two to five years in the penitentiary. The special committee appoint ed to investigate the alleged sale of the experimental farm by the regents of the university report ed that the sale at least showed the lack of business acumen, and censured the university for ex ceeding their rights. The uni versity seems to have acquired the habit of doing just as it pleases without regard to law or decency, and so far has been able to get away with it. It is about time the legislature was roused to some drastic action and put the university management on the skids. The senators were musically inclined Saturday, and took up and passed a state anthem. Aside from the fact that the tune will be inflicted upon the people at every public gathering, and the writer will gain a little temporary notoriety, there is no harm done. The* senate also considered favorably the two reform bills from the house. One prohibit ing the sale of cigarrettes to minors, and the “red light’’ abatement law. This law puts responsibility and liability on the owner of premises whose tenants are convicted of maintaining houses of prostitution. Both bills are ready for the signature of the governor. A good roads bill was intro duced by Senator Wisnor. It pro vides for the appointment of three county highway commissioners by supervisors who shall serve without pay, the appointments to be made at the time a road bond election is called. If the bonds carry the commission shall have sole charge of the expendi ture of the money derived from the sale of the bonds, and have direction of all the improvement work. Senator Mattox’s bill amend ing the present law relating to public libraries has passed the senate and is now before the house where it will probably meet with but little if any op position. This bill will make it possible to establish public libra ries in towns of 2500 population, and provides for levying a half mill tax for its support. Gov. Campbell was not ena mored of the brilliant created rag that was to be known as the “state flag,’’ so he vetoed the bill. This bodes evil days for the state anthem also. The gover nor is not interested in fancy ferbelows and gaudy trimmings so much as he is in a sound busi ness administration. The house is putting in all its time trying to-find out just where they are at with the appropria tion bill, and as a short cut of the tangle it has been proposed to j introduce a new bill and start all over. Senator Sutter took a mild j fling at the house in the senate Monday, during a discussion of the bill creating a home for the' feeble-minded. He was inclined to oppose the bill on the ground that there were not enough feeble-minded people in the state to justify the expenditure, but since he had been watching the; antics in the house he was not ’ sure but the bill should pass. The senate killed Senator Mat tox’s bill that drivers of vehicles must stop, look and listen when crossing a railroad track. Per haps the bill should read making the railroad trains stop or there will be some calamities to record. The senate seems to be anxious to clean up all the important legislation and dispense with an extra session, but the house evi dently wants to come back. At a conference of educators in Lincoln, Neb., last week the condition was considered deplo rable that trained lady teachers cannot be held in the schools only for a year or two, and just about the time they are getting really efficient they slip off to get mar ried. Perhaps it would help some if the Arizona legislature would pass a law making it a felony for a lady teacher to get married until she has reached the age of thirty-five years. This suggestion has the full ap proval of Superintendent Cor nelius of the Winslow schools, who has to put in all his time hiring teachers for the next school year to fill the vacancies created by matrimony.
