"flustered," Mr. Mineral Wealth, Harry William's baby is the biggest kind of a ooy. The weather yesterday was rather chil ly, but this is accounted for by the near proximity of the 4'h of March. The Clacks and Davis will have a car load of ore at the sampler from the Oro Plata mine the first of next week. R T. Root and several gentlemen rep resenting the Excelsior Mining Company went out to White Hills Monday. Mis? HelerA. Tolman returned Tues d3y night from Fort Mohave, where she has had a delightful two weeks' outing. There was born ro the wiie of Kean St Charles la3t Tuesday night a baby girl. Mother and child are getting along nicely. Mrs. J. K. Mackenzie ba3 bSiumed the management of the Kingman House and we predict for her a successful business future. Mrs. C. E. Sherman, of Mineral Park, came in on last night's staye and is stop ping with her sister, Mrs. Kean St. Charles. The roof is being put on the Mulligan and Hubbs building and the outside work will be completed within the next ten days. About twenty -five new windmills have been ordered for Kingman wells Kinir man is fortunate in having so much wa ter close to the surface. George M. Bowers is plowing his ground in the Bowers addition and will seed part of it and the balance will be set out in fruit and vines. By Sherman, one of the early settlers of Mohave count', will soon take a trip to Wallapai mountain, where he has sev eral rich silver properties. The warm dayB of the middle of the week started the buds on the cottonwood trees. The frosts of next month are lia ble to cause havoc among the trees. Harry F. Williams, the genial day operator at the depot, is now the proud father of a handsome baby boy. The little one made itB appearance last Mon day. George A Bjiielii has been on the sick list this week, but is getting around again all right. It takes more that a well developed dose of la grippe to hold George down. Rich discoveries of gold in the neigh borhood of Kingman were made a few week's ago, but the owners are keeping it quiet. The Miner man will visit the properties next week and giye a full ac count of them. Thomas Davis came in from the Ora Plata mine the early part of the week to haye a piece of steel removed from his eye. Dr. Knight removed the foreign substance anil Tom returned to the mine the following day. Thomas Howard, who has charge of the loading of freight for the Excelsior Mining Company, is in Kingman. Mr. Howard has been supervising the con struction of the company's large barn near the old Cross ranch. Rev. Thomas, of London, one of the new White Hills Mining Company, will preach in, the M. E church tomorrow night. Yesterday was arbor day in Arizona, but in this neck of the woods tree plant ing can be indulged in at all times with out fear of overdoing the thing. J. N. Cohenour lost a drill in the Roe well on Beal street this week and after fishing for it for several days wa com pelled to abandon it and sink a new hole. John Cross has put chased the stage line of Mike Scanlon and will hereafter conduct the business. Mr. Cross is an old time staj.e m in and will mane a suc cess of the venture The Saginaw Lumber Company, of which the Kingman Mercantile Company is agent for Mohave county, is about to rebuild its large plant at Williams, de stroyed by fire nearly a year ago. Mr. Bliss, of the -1. M. Dennis Lumber Company, of Williams, was in Kingman yesterday conferring with the agents of the company, Messrs. Gaddis & Perry, and getting acquainted with our people. Thomas Baker, who has oeen under the care of a physician in California for some months past, is said to be fully re covered in health. We hope Mr. Baker will now return to Mohave county and enter into business again. There are even or eight men at work on the Lookout m;ne, south of Kingman, owned by J. 8 Withers and all are get ting good ore. When properly opened up the mine ought to become a big pro ducer. W A Lswtll hvs his liyery stable, south of the Mixer offije in full running trim and now people can he accommo dated with any kind of a turnout they may desire. Mr. Laswell also doe3 a general fe?d and sale business. J. W. Grritt, we understand, has bonded the Engle mine at Cedar and will put a force of men to work on it. Mr, Gerritt is a rustler and we hope he will make a success, as the property is one of the be3t in southern Mohave county- - Owing an error in the apportion ment of school moneys Kingman school will close in about two weeks It looks to us that an error of this kind should be remedied so that the largest district in the county could get the benefit of a full school term. The Kingman baseball club will play a matched game of hall at Needles on the 15th of this month. In the evening of that day the 0 R. C. will give their an nual ball to which hundreds of people have been invited. The ball game will be one of the fsatures to interest the vis itors. The Kingman Dram itic Club have re turned from Needles and are enthusias tic in praise of the treatment accordpd them by the eood people of Needles. They report crowded houses the two nights they played the town and the Needles people say that few travelling show3 excel the performance given. We rather think Gold Basin will bloom out into a boom compared with which Cripple Creek boom will pale like the sickly lighl of a candie under the beam of an arc light. In the Gold Basin there are some of the most magnificent bodies of ore to be found in Arizona. L ick of water has been the great drawback, but capital can overcome this defect. A report comes from Berkely, Califor nia, that Isabelle, the eldest daughter of Samuel Crozier, was seriously ill. A delicate surgical operation had to be per formed from which it was feared she would not survive. The many friends of the family in Mohave county will earn estly pray for the young lady's speedy recovery. 03car Vandercook. of Salt Lake City, who has had charge of the Cedar Valley mill for many months past, is in King man. Mr. Vandercook will leave in a day or two for the Mocking Bird mine, where he will put the mill in repair and take full charge of it. He is a thorough mill man and will undoubtedly make a success of the Mocking Bird property. An immense grey wolf was killed early Thursday morning near the slaugh ter house by J. F Phelan. It was run ning with some Indian dogs when first seen and Mr. Phelan had to follow it a long distance before getting a chance to shoot it. It is supposed that this wolf has caused great destruction among the calyes in the Wallapai mountain coun- try for a year or more past. The animal was on exhibition in the meat market Thursday. It weighed ninety pounds. W. N. Parker and wife, of San Fran cisco, are at the Hubbs. Julius Oleson, lepresenting that live: newspaper, the Albuquerq'ie Citizen, made a pleasant call this morning. Frank Morrell, deputy U. S. marshal, was in Kingman this week and arrested a man for selling liquor to Indians. Thursday night two tough characters shot up two of the White Hills saloons. Tough men should be taught a lesson by being sent to jail for a few months and placed on light diet. James Uncapher has been developing the Qaeen Bee mine, at Mineral Park, and has opened up unmp' -e bodies of gold and silver ore. The Queen Bee is a fine property for a company to handle W. H. Taggart and A Ver Mehr are home again from White Hills, where they have been taking inventory of stock preparatory to turning the branch store and contents over to the White Hill? Company. The W. H Taggart Mercantile Com pany hts disposed ot their White Hills store and stock of general merchand' to the White Hills Company. They will now devote their entire attention to their rapidly growing interests in Kingman. Thomas Chidister has leased George M. Bower's stables and corral in the western part of town and will do a gen eral teed business. Mr. Chidister is also fitting up a blacksmith shop for the con venience of teimsters using his corral. J. W. Smith yesterdav commenced the construction of a telephone and telegraph line to White Hills. The line will be completed within a month. If. will be one of the conveniences the people of White Hills has long felt the lack of. Now for the railioad. Not a passenger train arrives in King man without bringing mining men from all parts of the globe in quest of good mining properties. Miners are also flocking into town on their way to the surrounding mining camps. The rush fa sure to come within the next few months. William McFarlane, who has the con tract to build the forty s'amp mill at White Hills, says that the machinery and material necessary for the oonstinction of the mill wili weigh 503 tons. The new company will furnish all the teams in the county many months hauling, judg ing by the vast quantity of freigh; ar riving daily. In Weaver district is a group of gold mines embraced in what is known as Eigle camp that will compare favorably with any mines in the county. The last run of the mill at Murphy's landing paid well, but, the owners thinking thav had a better thing on 'hp Nevad i side of the river, moved the mill across and the mine was allowed to lie idle over since. J R Moore, of S -;kron Hill, was in Kingman this week Mr Moore owns several valuable properties at the foot of the mountain upon which he is doing considerable work. Above water level one of the claims produced thousand of dollars in rich ore and the last, work done bel"w the tunnel level showed the ore still going down. With pr per appli ances this mine would to-day be a big dividend payer A mining man of wide experience said in the lobby of one of our hotels the other evening that never before had he seen such vast bodies of ore as are blocked out in the White Hills mines. Regarding the values of the ores he said they ran away and above any thing Col orado has ever seen. He predicted that White Hills would in very short time be the scene of the greatest excitement ever witnessed in a mining camp on the Amer ican continent. In our opinion freighters are dotm business ontoo small a margin to make it pay. When warm weather comes the repair bills will eat up the scant profit J and many teamsters will go the wall, j While we are in favor of the miner get- i ting all the advantages we also recognize the fact that the teamster was put on earth to live and thrive with olier men. We know something of the ups and downs of freighters in Arizona and are sure that the downs are far in excess. Last night one of the most important deals in the annals of Arizona mining was closed whereby the Excelsior Min ing and milling company acquired title to thirty claims in Indian Secret mining district. The amount paid for the prap erties is said to have exceeded 2,000,000$. R. T. Root engineered the deal and an English syndicate is. the purchaser. Later we will give a review of the work mapped out by the new company. Life in Mexico. Wesley Falls has returned from an ex tended trip through Mexico. "I would not care to live in the City of Mexico," said he at the Albany hotel last night. "The city is built upo- the site of an an cient lake and the ground is saturated with water. The boasted sewerage sys tem is a fake. I believe the city is un healthy, and if I were obliged to make headquarters in the region, I would cer ainly take up my residence outside of the city. The hotels are abominable and all the time I was in Mexico I never tasted real butter but once and it was imported Irom the United States. The Mexicans never put sali into their butter and their lack of taste in seasoning is svsarisome to a foreigner. As to beans, the Mexican cooks lead the world. Why, if there were a dearth of the bean crop I shudder to think of what might become o the Mexicans. They would never get dong at all without beans." Denver News. When a school master entered the tem ple of learning a few mornings ago, says an exchange, he read on the blackboard the touching legend : "O.ir teacher is a donkey." The pupils expected there would be a combined cyclone and earth quake, but the philosophic petagogue contented herseif with adding the word "driver" to the legend, and- opened the school as U8u D. W. Earle, representing the El Pao smelter, is at the Commercial. Mr. Earle has examined many mines in this county and is well pleased wi h the prospects. Harris, Morgan and Wilson have b Hided their gold property in Weayer district to Montana parties. W. B. C.impnell, the prosperous mine owner of Campbell, is in Kingman on business. G W. Beecher is moving one of his residences on a lot on Oik street. Weather Report. Signal, Ariz , February 1, 1897.

Somers Cole, of Port Elizibeth, N. J, while repairing the old Hays homestead, f )iind a box of gold and paper money in the eaves of the house amounting to 25, 000$ The money was ancient money and bank notes, and owing to its age is worth considerable more than its fare value. The Hays homestead was built bolorf the revolutionary war and the m ne" was secreted there bv John Hiys, who was one "of the pioneer settlers of New Jersey. A striking illustration of the influence of fatigue upon the neryons system is af forded by an experiment conducted by an Italian physician some months ago. Twenty four bicycle riders who had rid den thirty-two miles in two hours and a quarter were examined with reference to their hearing, and ic was in nearly every ins'ance found to be defective. Af ter'tvvo hours' rest the hearing had be come nominal in most of them Ex Now let the legiahuure amend that bill to "define a legal newspaper" by mak ing it further read "and wholy piinted at place of issuance," and they will have taken a step in the direction of encour agemetit of home enterpiise which will meet with the hearty endorsement of a large majority of Arizona publishers Holbrook Argus.

In his metf-ae io the Nineteenth leg islature, among oiber excellent suggest ions, Governor Franklin calls attention to the matter of mileage allowed the leg islators, and reconimmds lhat instead of the present svelem, each member is di rected to file an itemized sworn state ment of the actual expenses, in going to and coming from the sessions of legisla ture. By all means, this suggestion should be acted upon and become a law. The counties are obliged to pay this mileage, and as many of the members ride on passes, which they receive simp ly because they are members, the mile age is a bonus to which they are not en titled by any manner of means. If the legislature n really seeking to legislate in the interest of economical government, it cannot consistently overlook this very excellent suggestion of the governor. Arizona Citizen Comme'iting o i th an jj -ct A suicide, the Butte, Mont., Miner Buys: "It is better even to oreathe the suiphur smoke in Butte thin to breathe it in the ortho dox smelter town of eternit, where the victim not only gets the smoke, but also feels the fire. There is more enjoyment in giving trouble and laughing and wink ing at adversity than in having your enemies laghing at your corpse and dancing jigs on your grave. It is better to see the sun rise th in to run the risk of finding that the atheist is right and the grave the end of all. It is far better to suffer a little imaginary pain here be low than to go into the other world un der circumstances which will keep you on the treadmill of punishment fir ages."
