OH AS. R. DRAKE, .
J. KNOX CORBETT, Chairman.
J. W. Dorrington, publisher of the
Sentinel arrived home from an ex
tensive eastern trip, which included
the Republican National Convention
at Philadelphia, on the 23rd inst.
Mr. Dorrington was a member of the
committee who gave Mr. McKinley
the official notification of his nomi
nation and he was the onl one on
the committee who had acted in a
similar capacity for the second time,
he having served on the same com
mittee four years ago, and in both
instances the members made a trip
to Canton, Ohio, to fulfill their mis
sion. The Sentinel's new plant is here, j
LEFT A WILL
FREDERICK BUCK MAY NOT HAVE
DIED INTESTATE AND POOR.
Some Thousands of Dollars of His
Said to Be on Deposit Both in Los
Angelese and Phoenix Banks
Also Some in Yuma.
Letters of administration were
granted Mr. L. F. Bradshaw in the
estate of .Frederick Buck, on the
20th of last month, who, it is sup
posed perished on the desert the lat
ter part of July while hunting his
The letters were applied for and
granted to protect deqeased's min
ing interests, which are said to be
quite valuable, and because of him
having died intestate, and nothing
being known of his connections.
After Mr. Bradshaw had been
appointed administrator, Patrick
Fitzgerald arrived in Yuma and
made the following statement to a
representative of the Sentinel:
''I have known Mr. Buck inti
mately for over twenty-three years,
during which time I spent a part of
my time nearly every year with the

He has been in this section of An-

nas ior a long time ueen kuowu as
"Hermit Buck.' D uriug all these
years he and his wife had no direct
communication with one another,
but indirectly they kept compara
tively well posted, and both seemed
to be satisfied as no effort was made
to secure a legal separation.
"Mr. Buck also told me that he had
considerable sums of money banked
both in Los Angeles, Cal., and
Phoenix, Ariz., besides having
money in a safe in Yuma."
Should the above prove true
there is also a possibility that a will
may be in safekeeping somewhere.
The hook and ladder boys are
drilling several times a week and
are rapidly perfecting themselves
as fire fighters. This is an effort in
the right direction. A practical
knowledge of apparatus is an essen
tial to efficiency at fires.
Richard Darling, a well-known
mining man of St. Louis, is in town.
Mr. Darling is interested in a group
of mines near Tysons' Wells, this
county. Prom the best information
that we can'' receive, this group of
copper mines bids fair to rival the
famous United Verde mines at
Miners' Wages Raised.
The leading mines in this camp
have announed an advance in miner's
wages of 50 cents per day. Of course
the card wasn't up 10 minutes till
it was pronounced one of McKinley's
campaign tricks. We only wish all
politicians were full of such tricks.
We are willing to be tricked that
way all our lire, especially when
there is no chance to vote for the
indivual who played the trick. Some
people would kick if they had both
legs broken. Many miners have
sought other $3.50 camps, when it is
a well known fact that the mines in
this camp are the pleasantest in the
territory in which to work. The re
sult will be immensely beneficial to

The News From Mohawk.
Col. Geo. W, Norton of Mohawk
was in town Monday. He informs
us that the station on the Southern
Pacific has been moved from Texas
Hill to Mohawk Summit, from where
his stage line to the King of Arizona
makes close connection with the east

Mr. Norton has taken a contract to
open a wagon road from the King
to Tyson's Wells mining district.
The route has been surveyed, and
found feasible, with no heavy grades
and plenty of water. The opening
of this road will divert the trade of
that prosperous miuing district to
the King of Arizona and Mohawk.
Mr. Norton states that Mohawk is
quite a bustliDg town. Also that our

! Gov. Murphy spent Sunday in
Yuma and returned to Phoenix the
same night. The governor gave us
the pleasing information that his

the Santa Fe railroad, had returned
from his trip to Europe, greatly
benefited by the trip, and thought
that he would soon be able to take
an active part in the affairs of his'
