WEEKLY JOURNAL-MINER, WEDNESDAY MORNING, JANUARY 15, 1913.
Taken Over by the Hays
Final negotiations between the
Hays Cattle Company of California
and several land and cattle owners
of Peeples Valley, were concluded
in this city yesterday, involving one
of the largest transactions of its
character that has ever taken place
in this county, the purchase price
reaching close to $100,000 it is re
ported. The corporation took over some
time ago the holdings of the five
Akard brothers, embracing about
850 acres of land and several run
dred head of cattle. Following that
deal H. L. Jaycox, Bishop & De
Armond and Charles C. Evans dis
posed of their interests in the same
locality, which aggregate over 1,000
acres and live stock running into
several hundred head, all deeds be
ing filed for record yesterday.
Associated with the transaction
it is reported the Hays syndicate
has outlined a very large plan of
improvement to be given their land
interests in the valley proper, sub
dividing the 2,000 acreage into a

One by one the ranks of the con
firmed bachelors become decimated,
as Cupid smiles and leads them into
the yoke of matrimony. This fact
was exemplified at Seligman on
Thursday night when Deputy Sheriff
Frank Burnell was captivated by
as fair a young woman as ever lived
in that country, in the person of
Miss Eva Gibbons. Judge G. B.
Naill tied the hymeneal knot.
The occasion was so popular that
the marriage was attended by prac
tically every resident of that com
munity. Bride and groom enjoy a
splendid name, the former for her
lovable disposition and charming
personality. The groom has won the
esteem of all in that and other sec
tions of Arizona, being one of the
most fearless officers in the state,
and with a record thai places him in
a class by himself in efficiency and
courage. In addition he is also in
the detective service of the Santa
Fe Pacific railroad, stationed on the
main line, and has come into promi
nence in recent months through
running down many of the crimin
ally inclined. Mr. and Mrs. Bur
nell will enjoy a honeymoon 'trip
to the south m -a short time. Their

TO DEVELOP CLAIMS
(From Wednesdays Dally)
John S. Rielly, T. H. Biles and
J. S. Thurman "have established a
camp in Copper "Basin, and will
prosecute extensive development on
their holdings, which comprise frac
tions of claims, surrounded by the
Mr. Reilly has gone to take charge
of development and for the present
will have his headquarters at the
J. J. Jackson camp on the Copper
Hill group. The firm contemplates
performing extensive development,
and a shaft will be sunk on what is
believed to be the same mineralogi
cal condition that has been deter
mined on the Commercial.
OIL CONCERN IS
ENLARGING ITS HOLDINGS
(From Thursday's Daily.)
The Tempe-Verde Oil Company,
drilling on the Turner ranch, of the
Middle Verde Valley, is enlarging its
land holdings, closing the deal a few
days ago taking over S00 acres of
oil lands owned by C. C. Colloway
W G. Wingfield, A. K. Lee, W. T.
King. William and C. W. Stephens
r.nd E. M. Thompson. The land will
be occupied later to conduct exploi
tation for oil. The price paid was
in Peeples Valley
feeding and pasturing center, which
will be reclaimed through a system
of water storage at the upper end
of the valley, and where living
springs and subterranean channels
will afford a bountiful supply at any
season of the year.
Orchards are to be cultivated also,
and in fact the scheme of making
the land productive commends it
self as a practical move and one
that will meet with success. The
large area which the purchasers will
control in range rights is also an
important and valuable asset.
The Hays people come into the
Arizona field from California, and
are located in the Coalinga section.
J. L. Hays, president, J. Zwang,
secretary, and A. Kreyenhagen and
R. W. Forbes, stockholders, partici
pated yesterday in winding up the
various transactions, and leave today
for Peeples Valley to assume charge.
Mr. Evans, one of the sellers, re
tains his interests in Kirkland val
ley, where he will continue to re
side. RESULTS FROM
NEW PROCESS PLEASING
(From Wednesday's Daily)
F. M. Murphy, who has returned
from an inspection of the workings
of the new plant at Crown King,
which is treating the old tailings
dump of the Crown King mine, ex
pressed himself as .decidedly well
pleased with the output in concen
trates. Three grades are being pro
duced, a zinc, iron and gold yield,
all distinctive, and the separation
process is conducted by a Hunting
ton mill, Wilfley tables and Vanner
tables. The. extremely cold weather
of the past three days has caused a
temporary suspension of the plant,
and in the meantime certain repairs
and adjustments will be effected to
make the treatment practically per
fect. Mr. Murphy is elated over the
principle introduced of handling this
old-time tonnage that accumulated
after several vears run of the ores
from the mine, ft being the first
pratclcal demonstration of a mcchani
cal appliance that has been able to
solve a reduction problem that baff
led mineralogists and others of prac
tical training. Each separation made
carries gold values, and in the ag
gregate the loss is but nominal.
Mine owners of the Bradshaws are
very much elated over the success
being made, all ores in that region
carrying the same mineral character
istics as the Crown King, and with
the same results in treatment as are
reflected in the tailings dump that
is being handled at present with
marked success. Mr. Murphy con
tinued his journey yesterday to the
southern part of tire state on min

Rtf Health and Strength Back
Again by The Use of CarduL
Tampa, Fla. In a letter from thli
city, Mrs. E. C. Corum writes: "l was
all weakened and worn out with wo
manly troubles. My husband brought
me some Cardul as a tonic, and, from
the first day. It seemed to help.
I had almost lost my reason, but,
tbankB to Cardul, I did not. Soon, I
felt and looked like a new woman. I
think the remedy is wonderful. I
recommend it to my friends, for I hare
received great benefit from it."
Cardul acts specifically on the weak
ened womanly organs, strengthening
the muscles and nerves, and building
them up to health.
It helps to refresh the worn-out ner
vous system and relieves the effects of
overwork, both mental and physical.
Fifty years' successful use fully
prove the merit of this purely vege
table, tonic remedy for women.
In every community, there live some
who have been benefited by Cardul.
The beneficial effects of this time
tested woman's remedy, soon show
themselves in many different ways.

HE OLD PUEBLO
Tucson Was Not Prepar
ed for the Chilly
(From Saturday's Daily.)
Father Mandin, who returned yes
terday from Tucson, atfer confer
ring with other Catholic priests on
church matters affecting that deno
mination in this state, reports the
theme that engrossed more discus
sion than any other topic of recent
date, was the cold weather.
On Tuesday morning the thermo
meter registered two degrees below
zero, which was regarded as simply
astounding when it is taken into
consideration that ice. seldom forms
in that low elevation at any time
during the winter months. To add
to the freakish actions of the ele
ments, flakes of snow also fell,
which was the first visitation of that
character in over thirty years. The
cold burst also occasioned consider
able suffering and some damage to
property, the sudden drop in the
temperature not being expected.
KANSAS CITY STOCK YARDS,
Jan. 6. Finished beef steers work
ed a little lower last week, and feed
ers and stock cattle gained a little,
butcher grades about steady. The
run of cattle here today is 12,000
head, and the same general tendency
in the market rules today. Where-
ever steers are a little too good to
go back into feed lots there is
weakness, but below the line where
feeder buyers begin to look at them
there is strength. The last day of
August an Illinois buyer purchased
some feeders here at $6.80, which he
sold in Chicago two weeks ago at
$8.65. Feeding steers similar to
those would cost ?7.50 today, which j
shows how much the gap between
the two classes has closed up since
last fall. It is not very far to a
repetition of the character of the
cattle market of two years ago.
when feeders and fat steers sold
Dealers generally believe there
will be good runs of cattle this
month, which will this trend to
continue, but after that, if the belief
of some rtadesmcn that runs will be
lighter be true, fat steers may draw
away from the feeders again.
Sixty loads quarantine arrived to
day, largely meal fed steers, which
sold a shade under a week ago. The
Gatewood steers brought $7.25 to
$7.45 today, against $7.20 to $7.55
last Monday, and $7.40 Thursday
Other meal fed steers sold at $625
to $7.25. Bulk of the native cows
bring $5.00 to $6.25, heifers $6.00
to $7.00, best veals $10.00. Hogs
overran the estimate today, 'the
count footing up 7500 head. The
market was strong to 5 higher, top
$7.45, bulk $7.20 lo $7.40. A gen
eral storm today will probably ham
per shipping operations, and runs of
all kind of stock later this week
will be reduced on -account of it

lambs are worth up to $8.50, weth
ers $5.50, yearlings $7.35. Shipments
from native feed "lots do not threat
en the market at any point. Colo
rado shippers from the San Luis
Valley will "be "kings of the local
market for the next two or three
weeks, and it looks like they will
land on a good spot.
"JUICE" TO SOON
PUMP CITY WATER
(From Wednesday' Daily.)
The Arizona Power Company yes
terday installed transformers at their
station in this city which will fur
nish power for pumping water from
Del Rio to the city reservoir.
This service will be connected
with the Willow creek sub-station
pumping plant, and in a short time
the other battery of transformers
will be placed in position at Del
Rio, when electrical power only
will be used in conducting the water
to this city, under the contract re
cently entered into. The company
reports eastern manufacturing hous
es as congested with orders for elec
trical apparatus hence the delay in
installing the service. The saving to
the city it is expected will run into
several thousand dollars annually.
