Determined to Preserve Her Identity
and Will Refuse Jo:nt Statehood.
Phoenix, Ariz., Oct. 15. The terri
tory of Arizona, rich in American citi
zenship, as well as natural resources, is
making a determined fight to retain its
identity. The people as a whole are
bitterly opposed to the plan of joint
statehood with New Mexico. They ad
vance various reasons for their opposi
tion, some of them potent and others ol
little apparent weight. Whatever the
reaeon, they are overwhelmingly again?t
joint state hoot, and will kill the prop
osition at the polls next month. The
leader of the "jointists in Northern
Arizona acknowledges that he does not
count upon more than 15 per cent of
the vote in favor of jointure.
The chief objection to union with
New Mexico appears to be based upon
the disparity in size and quality of
population. The Mexican element in
New Mexico numbers at least fcO per
rent of the total popalation. In Ari
zona the Mexican vote is about 15 per
cent of the total. Much of the Mexi
can popalation in Arizona is floating,
consisting of laborers on raliroads and
irrigation enterprises, etc., while the
Mexicans living in New Mexico are, as
a rale, native ol tne territory.

provided such doe not exceed 20 per
cent nor go over 1,200.
Grower having from 1,200 to 2,000
sheep in the reserve this year will I
cut 20 per cent, provided such a cut
will nut reduce the number letow
1,200. those having from 2,000 to

Say Railroads Discriminate in Freight
Rates to Pacific Coast.
Washington, Oct. 15. A complaint
has been made to the Interstate Com
merce commission by the North Caro
lina Caseworker)' association, whose
membership consists of firms engaged
in the manufacture and sale of furni
ture, against many lines of railroads in
the West, because of alleged unjust and
discriminatory charges for the trans
portation of furniture, especially trom
High I'oim, N. C, and Danville, Va.,
to Pacific coast terminal points. .
The complainant declare that the
railroads charge them f 1.70 per hun

from the North Carolina territory to
Pacific coast points, and insist npon a

Hard to Reconcile Them.
Cienfuegos, Oct. 15. Consul Gener
al Steinhart' endeavors to settle local
difficulties and reconcile the hostile
factions have not yet borne much fruit.
The Liberals continue to demand the
removal of all the police and would be
glad to have the mayor of the city oust
ei. The amnestying of all persons
connected with the murder of Congress
man Villuends last year is serving to
quiet the had feelings that have pre
vailed. The volunteers, instead of
turning in all their gnns, have conceal
ed some and buried others.
Hood River Land in Demand.
Hood River Pales of ranch and city
property aggregating lou.uuu in one
day are reported by Hood River real
estate men, who said that the demand
here for apple land was never better
than at present. The statement was
made that O. L. Vanderbilt had been
offered 100,0U0 for his apple orchard
known as Buelah Land, which he re
fused because he haa a $15,000 crop of
apples on it, which the intending pur
chaser wanted included in the sale.
Vanderbilt confirms the sa'e. The
ranch of F. Chandler, 60 acres, was
told to the real estate firm of Albee,
Benbain & Co., of Portland, for $15,
000. The ranch is situated near the
city, and it is expected that it will be
cut up into lots.

favor the placing of all all state normal
schools nnder the control of a single

President, L. R. Alderman, nf Yam
hill; vice president, K. K. Bragg, of
Union; secretary, K. F. Neff, of Wasco.

mum term fiti per cent, and increasing
the minimum coonty levy 33 per crt.t
One recommendation of general interest
to teachers is that an application be
granted but one second 1 r third grade
ceitificate in this state. At prevent
only one such cer ti finite may be obtain
