(From Saturday'. Daily)
In an effort to fill the appointment
ef examiner of this county, at Thurs
day's meeting of the board of super
visors, a deadlock resulted. There
wore three applicants for the posi
tion, B. C. Davis, nominated by Su
pervisor Stewart, H. L. Fishel by
Snpervjsor bmith, and Harry Colvig,
by Chairman Harrington. One vote
-was taken, and no selection was made,
each candidate receiving one vote.
At tt) next meeting of the board, the
matter -vill again be taken up. The
offiee was created by the last legis
lature, with a stipulated salary of $10
a day, while duties of the office are
being performed in examining the
accounts of the various offices. Last
year those who filled the position
were L. A. Kerr nnd D. C. Kurtz,
and the aggregate sum paid for ser
vices rendered by both was about
kinds of agricultural prospects.

DEAL REPORTED CLOSED
DOUGLAS, April, 13. Yesterday
afternoon there was completed a
transfer of mining property in the
country west of Cumpas. This is the
San Lorenzo, which is located across
the divide on the Sonora river side of
the mountains and adjoins the Wash
ington property. It was originally lo
cated and worked by Martin Hickin

He is still to have charge as super-
the farmer should recognize that his
cuccess depends largely upon vhis con
serving every drop of moisture that
falls upon his land.
He also held it of great importance
that the seed should be adapted to
the soil and climate in which it
would be used and strongly advocated
the use, in all cases, of seeds raised
without irrigation, because of their
fight with a Mexican, which occurred
in Portland place shortly after 12
o'clock last night.

inary steps toward the early re-opening
of the Cababi Mining company's
property in the Comobabi district
southwest of Tucson were taken at a
special meeting of stockholders, at
which 1,700,S49 shares of stock were
represented, held at 3:30 o'clock yes
The direct action of the company
consisted in increasing tne board of
directors from three to nine mem
bers. All the new members are resi
dents of Indianapolis, Indiana. It
was further decided to re-open the
operations at the mines in the very
near future, after installing a large
amount of new machinery, a portion
of which will consist of a sinking
pump and a station pump. The latter
pump will be placed at the 200-foot
level and it is the belief of the di
rectors that these pumps will be
adequate to overcome the flow of
water into the mine.
The shaft is now down about 400
feet. It will be sunk another 400
feet by a largely increased force of
miners, the object being to nneover
and block out the ore body.
The lighter machinery now at thc
mine will be moved to an adjoining
claim and used to develop it.

After skuUfully and successfully
plying his vocation as a deaf, dumb
and blind man along the Santa Fc
for several weeks, James Trent pulled
into Ash Fork late last week, and
worked that town to a frazzle. He
went into the Pullmans, and tiring
of the job, disrobed, and was found
in bed contented in the embrace of
Morpheus. On being awakened sud
denly, his eyes were wide open, -his
tongue began to glibber, and his
hearing reappeared when he answer
ed questions with all the gullibility
of a parrot. Trent had accumulated
considerable money, but when it came
to paying $30 or as many days in thc
county jail, he kept the cash in his
pocket. On being taken from the
train, he showed trained ability with
his fists, and it took the crew to
eject him. Deputy Sheriff Bartlett
took a hand in the fracas, and Trent
was brought to the city yesterday
with his physical structure in. perfect
working order and without a flaw.

VERDE VALLEY GREAT
IS REPORTED FINISHED
(From Thursday's Daily.)
The interest in the visit of Doctor
Cooke, Director of Dry Farming for
me state or Wyoming, remains un
abated all over the county, as was
evidenced by the turnout of farmers,
mostly "wet," at tho Camp Verde
xehoolhouse at 11 o'clock this morn
ing. The eminent agriculturist prefaced
his remarks with the statement that
his branclx of the science of farming
should interest the irrigators as well
aa the dry land men, as the methods
of the latter are being used all over
the world by the irrigationists; that
is to say, that the principles of dry
fanning, viz, deep plowing and thor
ough cultivation are applicable to
the irrigationist and are so recognized.
Dr. Cooke paid a handsome tribute
to tne picturesquencss of the scenery
and the fertility of the soil of the
Verde Valley, remarking that their
opportunities for future development
are unsurpassed. They have the
greatest possibilities for developing!

dinary importance have been affect
ing tho stock of the Shattuek and
the Denn companies. Last fall the
Denn mine was closed down, the
pumps were pulled up and no effort
has beeu made since then to unwater
the mine or develop it in any manner.
In this period, however, the value of
the stock has advanced more than $1
a 'share to sales this week at $6 arid
$G12 on the Duluth Stock Exchange
The advance of a stock under such
circumstances may be regarded as un
natural, and due entirely to abnormal
conditions. The support in Denn has
come from tho "inside." One of the
officers of the company in the period
indicated is said to have purchased
Denn stock to tho value of about
$1,000,000. On the other hand the
stock of the Shattuck-Arizona, con
trolled by the samo people who own
the Denn, has declined between six
and seven points to $18.25, although
within the last twelve months it has
gone on a dividend basis of $4 a
year and is known to have not only
a large tonnage of rich, copper ore in
the small area developed, but its
capacity for production is large. It
could easily produce sufficient ore to
net shareholders more than $2 a
quarter even with, copper selling under
13 cents. Its costs are so low and its
management so efficient that it can
sell copper at a profit on a market
that would' force a majority of copper
producers to operate at a loss.

S, L. Duncan, general manager of
the Climax Mining company, while
in the city yesterday, stated that a
clean up of a recent mill run, was
being made, and the results would
show satisfactory values in free gold
He also stated that the long tunnel
through the mountain had been finish-
ed, which would give connection for
a direct route to the mill tramway,
thereby affording economical trans
portation of ores for reduction. This
work had been under way for many
months, and stoping would begin at
points opened and made accessable
for immediate reduction. It is his
belief that the mill will be operated
on a permanent basis, while ore ex
traction will be energetically con
ducted. The clean up is the third one with-
in the past six weeks, over $3000 in
bullion reaching this city previously,

with thc old Humboldt smelter in

as a motorcyclist, making the trip
from that point to Prescott in less
tihan an hour. As a mechanician he

suspended went to Portland, Oregon.
He returned to Prescott a few months
before the rebuilding of the works
was started last year and secured a
considerable sum by forging the
names of two business men of this
citv and Humboldt. He left for
Louisiana soon afterward, and was
arrested near Xew Orleans later.
After a sensational defense he was
brought to Prescott, and in the hear
