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.

Salem If the legislature of 1907 hal! grant any considerable portion of the recommendations of the county reboot superintendent ol Oregon, the public schools of the state will have more funds, longer term and better paid teacher. In annual session here the superintendent and principal agreed upon many desired change in the school laws, some ol them ol ninrh importance and interest not only to teachers and offic ers, but to taipayes and school patrons generally.

At prevent only one such cer ti finite may be obtain ed in a connty. hot by going from one ?oantr to another a teacher may get 33 third grade certitua'e-. The proposed change in the law will compel teachers to advance from year to year in their educational qualifications.

Composition, o kkreping and general history were snggered as proper subjects to be included in the examination for first grade county cer titic'tes, but only the two mentioned were approved.
