O K Parker who passed through
Kingman a few weeks ago on his way
to the Grand Canyon and Albu
querque for the purpose of logging
and mapping the road between Los
Angeles and the latter place was a
passenger on number ten yesterday
on his way to Peach Springs at which
point he had stored his car After gc
ing to Peach Springs from Kingman
he made the trip into Diamond Can
yon and incidentally drove his car
right to the rivers edge in the Grand
Canyon On this trip he obtained
some of tho best views ever taken of
canyon scenery and in Los Angeles
had the films developed and printed
The pictures were so good that he and
the Club had them enlarged and
mounted and covered them by copy
right The people of Los Angeles
who were shown the pictures declared
them the most beautiful they had ever
seen Mr Parker is enthusiastic over
the Canyon scenery and states that a
good road may be built to the river at
small cost He is going on from
Peach Springs to map the i oad to Al
buquerque and will consume several
weeks on the trip
Prosperous Mohave
At the close of business on the third
Monday of December the Treasurer of
Mohave county ascertained that out of
a total tax levy of 15093302 he had
collected 14201400 or 9532 per cent
leaving only 14939023 uncollected
Since that time a great deal of this
delinquency has been collected and it
is expected that less than two per
cent will remain by the first of Feb
Can any county in the state beat this
tax collection It shows in what pros
perous condiiion the county really is
and indicates its growing importance
Last year the levy was close to 80000
of which only 90 percent was collected
before delinquency Now with double
the tax roll the delinquency is only
one half of that of last year
Another indication of the prosperous
condition of Mohave county is evi
denced in the enlargement of the
quarters of the Arizona Central Bank
More than three times the floor span
now being occupied by the baiikg
quarters will be taken in and even
then sufficient room cannot be had
The bank has been growing in import
ance until now it is second to none of
the banks covered by the charter of
this big institution Within a year
the bank will probably have to secure
larger quarters should its business
continue to expand
Legislative Session
Governor Hunt is said to have de
termined on calling the legislature
together on the 3d day of February
1913 to enact some necessary laws and
provide revenue for the state for the
years 1913 14
Just what will be the outcome of
this calling together a defunct body is
hard to guess but it would seem cer
tain that should the present supreme
court decide in favor of its legality the
U S Courts will certainly hold the
other way The Arizona constitution
is quite positive on the term of the
members of the legislative body and
no court can legislate it into life
The term of a legislator ceases at a
certain time and there is no continu
ance in office as in the case of other
officers therefore it is certain that
any act of theirs in the making of laws
will be void The calling together of
these law makers will cause endless
litigation especially where the in
terests of the interstate roads are af
fected and where tax be levied upon
corporations having the right to go in
to t lie U S Courts for redress
T J Purdy president of the Yucca
Mining company was a Kingman visi
tor lat Sunday coming up from the
mines at Cedar He reports that the
drift on the 700 level has opened up
a splendid body of ore and exhibited
some of the samples from the vein
that were literally tilled with gold
The rock is peculiar in that it carries
the gold in a free state although the
ore is a heavy copper lead sulphide
A carload of the rich ore is being
hauled to the station at Yucca for
shipment to the smelter The assort
ed ore will run about 1000 in gold

ore will be placed on the dump and
later milled The vein appears to be
getting better as work progresses
