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.
