EEEVES COUNTY IS
WITHOUT A JUDGE
Peculiar SItuntlon Develops "Which At
torney General Ik Axked to
Unravel With on Opinion. ,
Pecos, Texas, Jan. 15. A puzzling
situation confronted the Reeves county
commissioners when they met here.
Last month T. F. Tucker, commissioner
of precinct 4, was shot and kill 3d.
County judge John Y. Leavell last
week appointed J. B. Sullivan to the
position, but had never approved Sul
livan's bond or qualified him, when
judge Leavell himself succumbed to
valvular heart trouble and died. This
leaves two vacancies on the board.
It was presumed that the three re
maining commissioners would consti
tute a quorum and would be able to
elect a county judge to succeed judge
Leavell. In accordance with this idea,
the court -was called to order. There
were four applicants, F. P. Richberg.
Harry MacTier, "Will P. Brady and H.
N. McKellar. The last named appli
cant, who was until November 11 dis
trict and county clerk of this county,
was the successful applicant. He soon
made his bond and took the oath of
I Some of the attorneys, however;
started looking into the matter more
closely and announced that they did
not believe the appointment regular.
This was based on a supreme court
decision which stated that, in the ab
sence of the county judge, three mem
bers of the board 'would not constitute
a quorum. Still another decision of
the criminal appellate court was dis
covered that seemed to bear out the
appointment, but the latter case was
hardly "on all fours" with the one in
hand, and rather than endanger the
legality of their proceedings by acting
on what might be a false basis, judge
McKellar and the commissioners de
cided to put the case up to the attor
ney general of the state.
It is probable that the situation is
absolutely unique in the history of thi3
state, or perhaps of any other. Ac
cording to the statute, Mr. Sullivan,
the new commissioner, though he has
been duly appointed, cannot take up
his work until his bond has been ap
proved by the county judge. There
was no county judge to approve his
bond and qualify him. Some hold that
his fellows, without a. Judge, do not
constitute a quorum, and therefore
have not the power to appoint a suc
cessor to judge Leavell. A special
judge appointed by the governor -would
not have jurisdiction in anything save
cases in county court, and if the
hypothesis is correct, nothing but a
special election for the choice of a
county judge would now solve the
problem. This election would have to
be called by governor Colquitt, and the
elected judge's bond -would also prob
ably have to be approved by the gov
ernor, since there could be no quorum
of the commissioners until after the
qualification of the new judge.
The funeral services of judge John
T. Leavell were held from the Leavell
home. Practically the entire citizen
ship of this place and numbers of
friends and former associates from the
snrrnundinir countrv. attended thft ser
vices, which "were conducted by" Rev.
J. B. Cole, pastor of the First Baptist
An Interesting item of the session of
the county commissioners was the pre-,
sentation for bounty certificates of
more than 200 coyote pelts. One man
from Loving county (attached to
Reeves) brought in 82 pelts, -while an
other had more than 40. Upwards of
30 bobcat skins were in the lot.
Courtland District Has Rec
ord Year's Production '
and Big Payroll.
Bisbee, Ariz., Jan. 15. Continual ru
mors regarding the absorption of the
Saginaw, Denn and "Warren mines by i
larger companies are now afloat here,
but to date nothing definite looking
towards an absomtion has transpired.
The Saginaw is controled by the C. &-
ren is an independent mine. -One of the
most current rumors about the Sagi
naw is that the C. & A. is about to run
a drift from the Junction shaft to the
Saginaw shaft. The Denn property lies
between the C. & A. and Saginaw prop
erties and this has given rise to the re
part that the C & A. will take over
The Copper Queen is very busy in
new development work and construc
tion work. Besides the extensive work
now under way. officials say that more
is planned for the new year and will
soon be announced. The mine is con
tinuing its record breaking production
and is working Sunday shifts on the
new smelter at Doug-as. Another unit
to the reverberatory plant is being
built at the smelter.
In the Courtland District.
Reports of the year's work at the
Courtland district have been received
by mining men in this city and show
that that camp has made an excellent
record for the year. A total of
1171 cars of ore were shipped,
711 going out since the first day
of July. For the year 1911 the pro
duction of the camp was but 462 cars
and the gross production of the Great
Western Copper company 1323,408, or
an average of S700 a car. During the
early part of last year, however, the
price of copper advanced nearly 50
cents so the statement, made at the
close of 1911, that the production in
1312 would be more than a million
dollars Is amply justified. The pay roll
of the camp in 1911 was $8500 a month,
while now it is close to $20,000. The
camp looks forward to a prosperous
year. The new Commonwealth Ex
tension company will soon begin opera
tions, as the stock of tae company has
been successfully floated here. A Chi
cago syndicate has recently purchased
14 claims at a cost of $60,000 and ex
pects soon to start development work.
The Leadville company is preparing for
extensive work. There is not a vacant
house in the camp and all the hotels
Sontn Rosalia to Resume.
Charles E. Edmondson, or Cananea,
was in the city and stated that the
Santa Rosalia, which has been shut
down for some time, will soon com
mence operations again. Henry Hill, of
the Calumet and Hecla, has been placed
in charge. A meeting of the stock
holders was held last week and the
same board of directors .was reelected.
Blnbee Sllnes Have Record Tear.
Although the final figures for the
year just ended have not yet been com
piled, it is estimated that the 1912 out
put of the Copper Queen was 125,
000,000 pounds of copper. The C. & A.
comes next in the district with an es
timated output of 53,000,000. The fig
ures, in both cases, are 'record break
ers. Parker "Woodman, president, and J. S.
Williams, a director, of the newly or
ganized Commonwealth Extension
Mining company, have returned to the
city after an inspection of the prop
erty, -which adjoins the Commonwealth
mine property. Mr. "Williams gave it
as his opinion that the property is an
exceptionally good one. It is the opinion
of competent mining men that the rich
veins of the Commonwealth mine,
which have produced millions, continue
into the Extension property.
The officials of the new company
have not yet decided when the work of
developing the property will begin, but,
it will be in a short time.
The Copper Queen is continuing ex-
csvation work for the foundation of

RESUMING WORK AT
ARIZONA GOLD MINE
Wickenburg. Ariz., Jan. 15. A full
force of men is at work at the property
of the Interior Mining company, better
known as the O'Brien mine, 16 miles
northeast of Wickenburg.
This is one of the most promising
mines In the Wickenburg section. It
is equipped with a 20-stamp mill and a
cyanlding plant. The deepest working
is a 400-foot shaft, with an incline
leading off from that.
The Interior is a gold property. Large
bodies of gold ore were developed be- '
fore work was suspended on account
of the panic. A considerable quantity
of good milling ore is on the dump. ;
"Within a short time the mill and cy
anide plant will be started up and the
Interior will be added to Arizona'&long ,

development work is still being pushed
with satisfactory results. Drills are
working and other development work
is underway on the Copper King prop

sunk 200 feet further and the sinking
there is being continued. The plugger
drill is being used in this work and
is proving verysuccessful. The timber

is said to be one or the largest in the
camp, but indications are that it twists

concerning the amalgamation of the

has it that the stock of the latter is
to be taken over for that of the former
