Efficient and quick work was shown
by Sheriff Mahoney in the capture of
one of the two youthful burglars who!
entered the stores of H. H. Watkms,
and the Arisona Stores company on
Watkin's Drug Store was entered
from the rear, a couple of revolvers,
some razors and pocket knives being
taken besides a small amount of
change out of the cash register.
At the Arizona Stores the boy al
so entered the back door and after
partaking freely of a lunch of cookies
honey and cheese washed down with
four bottles of grape juice, the boy?
helped themselves to some batteries
for their searchlights. They then
took a loaded revolver belonging to
John Hopkins and evidently not lik
ing it exchanged it for one in the
show case with amunition to fit it.
They also ransacked the place for
The robberies were discovered early
Friday morning by employees of the
stores, and the sheriff's office was im

honey upon examination of the ground
decided that the work was probably
that of young hoboes. He then wired
officers at different points along the
line and late the same day received
a wire from officers at Ashfork, stat
ing that they had picked up two young
hoboes, who had the stolen goods in
This is the first case for Mahoney
since taking office on the first of this
month and the speedy work shown in
this case seems to point to the fact
that the new sheriff of Mohave county
is there with the goods.
The sheriff left on No. 2 Friday
evening for Ashfork and will return
Saturday with his prisoner.
RAY RAUCH BACK IN
KINGMAN NEXT WEEK
Ray Rauch, will return next week
to take his old position with the Cit
izens Bank of Kingman.
"Rauch has been in the aerial ser
vice and recently returned from En
gland. He will be one of the first
to arrive in Mohave County across
the "briney." .
UTAH WORKING ON
The State Engineer of Utah has
been working on several projects for
the reclamation of 250,000 acres of
land in that state. One of the pro
jects is the taking of water from the
Green river and the other from the
Virgin. The projects contemplate
the darning of the rivers and bnng

The Virgin project is in the south
part of the state, near the Mohave
CAPTURE A BIG
Federal officers captured a consign
ment of 24 cases of whisky and a few
barrels of beer at Ash Fork, a few
days ago. The liquor had been con
signed to merchants of Needles and
the greater part of the shipment had
been unloaded at that place, the bal
ance remaining in -the car for ship
ment to Prescott and other points.
It was thought that the car would be
taken out on No. 2, which would bring
it into Ash Fork during the night.
Instead No. 8 took the car out and
arrived at Ash Fork the following day.
A federal officer went through the
empty express cars and found three
Mexicans and the big package of
booze. The men were armed with
sawedoff shotguns, rifles and revol
vers, but the officer came upon them
so suddenly that they had no chance
to use their weapons. They stuck
their hands up when he called upon
them and were marched out into the
arms of other officers. The booze
and' prisoners were taken to Prescott,
where the men will be tried for viola
tion of the Reed law relating to ship
ments into dry territory.
$30,000 FIRE DAMAGE
Holbrook was visited by the fire de
mon Wednesday night and a loss es
timated at $30,000 imposed. The tog
gery shop of L. Caldwell and company,
the telephone and a few small build
ings were consumed. It is probable
that the building could have been sav
ed, but the hydrants were frozen as
were chemical engines and no water
could be had to fight the flames. For
a time it seemed as though the great
er part of the business district would
be swept by the flames, but the
wrecking of two small buildings pre
vented its spread from the Caldwell
and Paulsell building.

WEDDING OF GEORCE
. FANCHER AND HARRIET
B. THORNE AT ONTARIO
At the home of the bride's sister,
Mrs. James O. Bailey, 307 East D.
street, Ontario, Calif., George Fancher
of Kingman, Ariz., and Harriet B.
Thome of Bryson, Calif., were mar
ried at 8 p. m. on Dec. 26.
The impressive ring service was us
ed. The bride was becomingly attired
ih blue silk crepe de chine and satin.
Pink carnations and asparagus ferns
were used effectively in decorating.
Immediately after the ceremony a
"regular Christmas feast" was served
by the bride's sister.
The newly married couple will
spend a short honey moon in Calif, and
then return to Kingman, Ariz., the
home of the groom.
Senator Ashurst yesterday introduc
ed a resolution in the senate asking
for an investigation into the damage
growing out of the internal conflict
in Mexico since 1912. Americans
have undoubtedly been damaged far
into the millions of dollars and it is
now time that reparation be demanded
of the Carranza government. Ameri
can interests in the sister republic
run over a billion dollars and this vast
amount has been depreciated to the
extent of several millions by the fac
tional fiehts and robberies committed.
No American is really safe today in
the republic and his property is in
the hands of the banditti at all times.
We are now in a position to make the
renublic of Mexico resuect Americans
and American interests and we might
just as well start the ball rolling- now
as later on.

to the persons who wish to visit in
neutral or enemy countries and to ap
ply to enemy aliens the same as to
citizens of the United States and the
allies. Applications do not have to
be made through the local draft board,
but must be made drectly to the Com

ture from the country the applicant
must appear before the commissioner
and make formal application. This

partment will issue the passport, the
applicant being notified by the Com
missioner. Aliens who desire to de
part from the country within 30 days
and no charge being placed against
them may be allowed to depart on pro
per certification. This does not ap
ply to citizens of allied countries who
wish to return to their home country
or who are on duty for their govern
ments. All information regarding passports
can be obtained by applying to the
Commissioner at Kingman, who is in
possession of the necessary informa
tion for all applicants. No passport
will be issued by the government with
out the permit from the local officer

to a California plant, situated some
distance from Los Angeles, where it
will be tried out. If successful many
