Congressman berger has introduced
a old-age pension bill, with a mini-

Very few if any of the friends of

per cent of the taxes tor the second

short in its fund early this year, on ac

ed that Mesrs. Dunaway and Oliver
have acted n a straightforward, busi

Lakeview and in appreciation of his
work Mr. Oliver on tne occasion of his
last visit was tendered a dinner by
the right of way committee. There is
no misunderstanding whatever, and
Mr. Oliver's reasons for desiring
the location of the depot grounds at

to all. Even should everything occur

NEW STATE FUND
FOR GOOD ROADS
Money Collected for Auto
Licenses Could Be Used
For This Purpose
Salem Statesman: Because of
fact that under the present law the
funds collected for automobile and
motor cycle licenses are turned over in
to the general fund of the state, thu
affording no permanent benefit to tho
autoist himself, it hai been suageste.i
bv several that the money be turned
into a good roads fund. Thia matter
was discussed by Secretary of State
Olcott yesterday, ha being in favor of
such a plan if a no lsw can t pmsol
by the legislature at the next eeion.
Under the new automobile law
through the operation of which thu
state has been collecting licenses since
several weeks ago. a substantial rev

says the message in part, "the joint

If 1 signed it, I do not see how 1 can
escape the responsibility kfor judicial
recall in the Arizona constitution.
"This provision, in its application to
countv and state judges, seems to me
to te so pernicious in effect, so des
tructive to the independence of the
judiciary, so likely to subject the
rights of individuals to the possible
tyanny of popular majority, and there

The motive this measure would
offer unscrupulous combinations to seek
the control of politics and the judges
is clear. These would profit by the
recall. Don't they include those hav
ing money enough to employ fire
brands and slanderers in the commu

The character of a judge would then
deteriorate to that of the trimmertar.d
time servers, and independent judicial
action would be thing of the past."

are upwards of 100.000 acres, it means
that eventually there will be in the

this does not include the added popu

larger portion of the products from this
