VmW RELIEF GEIS The committee for the relief of the babies in occupied iTance and Bel-j gium, Mrs. Charles H. Granger, chair- i man, and Mrs. Lucy Bulkley, assist- ant, have made report of their first wn weeks' work in Kinsman. The col- lections amounted to $18, and came through the placing of milk bottles in public places in town, ihe puouc w Vinrtlv to the nroDOsition and many pennies and nickels went into the bot tles. The following is the collections at the various places: WatHns Drug Store $ 4.05 .85 .55 3.50 1.05 1.70 .80 Beal Hotel Brunswick Hotel Harvey House Cherry Drug Store Kingman Meat Market . Arizona Stores Co. Central Commercial Co. Citizens Bank 1.25 Lang's Theater $18.00 Total Besides these collections Mesdamc3 Bulkley and Granger sold 250 button; it-h S2S was realized- All of this money has been sent to headquar ters at San Francisco. The relief of the babies in the occu pied territory is occasioned by the fact that the Red Cross cannot operate m that section of France or Belgium and the poor babies and children have to be reached in some other way. The present organization, having its head quarters for the Pacific coast at 337 Mills building, San Francisco, has been active in speeding relief to the little ones and getting good results. Your mite may save a life and you will nev er miss it. BALL GAME BRINGS CASH The ball game last Sunday between the Wallapai nine and the Kingman boys was rather mixed, but the results was what was looked after and not the quality of the playing. The game brought $16 to the coffers of the Red Cross and the good women in charge of that organization will see that these dollars go where they will do the most good. i cop-jTAKES BIG CHANCE IN JUMPING OFF TRAIN jack Beach, who was arrested last was being taken to New Mexico by a;convince the most skeptical that Mo- New Mexican sheriff, escaped from ihave county is moving right along and that officer by jumping from theldoinS well we .thank you. ihe 1.

Miller and fami.y were m Kineman Monday last fron their home at Lookout ranch laying in sup- pnes. iney uepurteu 10 their home the healthy growth it has shown in the past five years. It will be noted that three big mining companies have dropped from thi dividend class dur ing the year, the Goldroad, the Golcon da and the Tennessee, but nevertheless on the taxroll. At the same time there are many mines in the develop- fol-lment stage that will be producing be- lore the first of the year and this win i A. . increase next year's tax roll largely. It will be noted that mining and the railroads pay over 70 per cent of the tax oi the county, the other interests paying less than 30, per cent, mining paying on more than 40 per cent of that amount. Cattle owners pay less than S per cent of the total tax, and the fanners pay about 2 per cent. rri e :ai a. .1. : -!rl,.i Therefore, without the mines Mohave county would make a sorry showing of taxable property. Mining is the backbone and mainstay of the county and will continue in that position throughout all time. At the present time not one of its mines has been scratched, and it will be so far into the dim and distant future before any of them are worked out that it will not interest future generations in the least But that Mohave county is progress- ; ing our taxroll will prove, and that it t Ulg UU1 UlAiUIl Mill lLit .

SUPERVISOR CANDIDATE HERE A. M. MacDuffee, of Chloride, was in Kingman yesterday, having come ever here to look after business of the Adamana Oil and Lan dcompany. He also showed himself among the voters man COUNT! At a depth of 140 feet the Rico Exploration company this week enter ed the vein which had passed out of the shaft on its dip about 40 feet above. The vein at this point was found to be 44 feet wide, feet of which gave average assay results 01 SU1.U5 in gold and silver,. The bal ance of the vein ran better than $?20. A five inch streak assays over 800 ounces silver to the ton. This was not reckoned in with the average. At the 100 level the average of an 18-inch vein of ore was 80, which would in dicate that the values are increasing with depth. The new ore is out of the oxidized zone and would appear to be what may be termed the permanent oie body. The company is now being financed, a goodly treasury having already been provided for. The company is shap ing matters up to continue the shaft to the 200 level, where a station will be cut and the vein exploited at that depth. The men in charge of opera tions believe they have one of the best properties in the Cerbat mountains, the Rico being the northwesterly ex tension of the C. O. D. mine, which has been one of the big producers of the district. The vein can readily be traced through the property and into the extensions near the summit of the range. The hoist and other machinery was but recently placed on the mine and has been working nicely. Other machinery is to be put in and every thing possible done to produce results - - in tne least possible time. The Rico is situated about 1 miles6 north of Kingman, in the Wallapai mining district, and in one of the best mineralized sections of the Cerbat mountains. This belief is warranted by t'ic opening of the ore bodies at the present depth, and especially the cutting of the rich ore at the 140 level The management ol the mine is in good hands and every possible advan tage will be token of conditions ob taining to get the best results from the expenditure of money. ADJUDGED INSAXE Manuel Pereira, who was arrested last week on a charge of making sedi tious statements and beating up a clerk at Gold Road, was taken before Judge Paul C. Thorne and two physi cians last Monday and declared in sane. He was committed to the state asylum for the insane and Deputy Sheriff J. W. Harris departed the same evening to Phoenix with him. Pereira had an operation some time ago and was also suffering from an incurable disease, which undoubtedly undermin ed his constitution and brought on brain aberation. VISITING IN CHLORIDE This week Tom McGraw and daugh ter snent several days visiting friends and also looking after political affairs in Chloride. They report that Chlo ride is looking good and that the peo ple of that camp feel that better things are in store for it in the near future. ODD FELLOWS BANQUET GRAND MASTER WATKIN3 Last Wednesday the local lodge of Odd Fellows was visited by E. W. Watkins of Bisbee, grand master for Arizona, and a general good time was had. The grand master was banquet ed right royally and appeared to en joy the occasion immensely. His visit here was an annual inspection of the lodgeg in kis jurisdiction and he was pleased with the condition financially and the progress the lodge had made in membcrs-bip. WILL RAISE IHE T AGE L As soon as congress reassembles Secretary Baker will ask that the law be amended raising the age limit from the present limitations of from 21 to 31 years to that of from 19 to 36 years, or approximately these ages. Nothing definite has been decided up on, but it is the general belief of the armv that few men who could make 1 I good could be had over the age of 36 years. While this may be so it would be better to raise the limit to at least 45, which would bring many non workers into the fold where they could be made to perform some service for their country. And yet there are many men abuvc 45 who could be depended upon to perform prodigious services on the firing line or in any other place that war exigencies might place them. PRISONERS MAKE ESCAPE FROM MOUNTAIN ROAD CAMP Charley Dan and Jim Brown, who were awaiting trial on bootlegging charges, made their escape from the road camp on Copperville hill, a few days ago. So far there has been no report of their capture, and we sup 'pose no expense will be incurred in trailing them up- The county rould be better off without these felIow3 and will hold their indictment over them for future use. Charley Dan had I just served a term for bootlegging, ' but this was Brown's first time at bat. QUICK WITTED WOMAN EN TRAINS BELATED OFFICER A few days ago an officer and pri vate went over to forage while the ' train was waiting at the depot, and when they returned the train was .some distance up the track and gain ing speed rapidly. The officer gazed blankly after the retreating train non plussed, but Mrs. George Kayes solv ed the situation by inviting the men into her car and the race after the train began. . It is said that she had Barney Oldfield beat a city block be fore she had gone a hundred yards and was fast overtaking the train when the absence of the officer" was discovered land the train brought to a stop east of town. It was but a minute until the men were aboard and the train again under way. E SHIPPING RICH ORE This week the Middle Golconda ship ped to the smelter one of the richest cars of ore ever taken from that property. The ore shows masses of ruby and native silver and also car ries some gold. John Mulligan, who looked through the property this week, reports that Supt. Bell has opened up. six feet of splendid ore in the deep level and that it is from this level that the big body of ore has been shipped. The opening of this body of ore has brought the property into prominence what may be expected at still greater depth. The work of driving on the ore body is progressing, as well as the raise to the level above through the ore. Samples brought to, Kingman from the property look much like the old time ore taken from the Cupel and Nighthawk, being heavy masses of native and ruby silver. T LEASERS HAVE $700,000 The striking of the great ore body in the Higgins lease at Bisbee has cre ated some excitement in that great camp- The men have so much ore in sight that they expect to make a clean up of $700,000 by the first of next February, the date of the recission of their lease. The Higgins company then expect to take up the work of further developing the property and expect to make it one of the big mines of Warren district. I GOES TO PHOENIX ! Attorney Charles W. Herndon has I gone to Phcenix, where he will look ! after legal and other business. MEREDITHS RETURN Mr. and Mrs. Frank Meredith, who have been visiting throughout Texas and other states, returned to Kingman yesterday evening and will go on to Chloride today. They report having had an excellent time and returned in the best of health. SMOOTH UP STREETS The board of supervisors is bringing in the big tractor from the Signal country and will soon have it at work on the streets of Kingman and the roads leading out into the country. The roadbed will first be broken up with a scarifier, wet down and rolled. More sand will probably be added to take up the surplus oil that has caus ed the roadbed to roll and wrinkle like a choppy sea. Kingman should have good streets. The people paid for the oil and aided in every way to build up good roadways. No county moneys were used in the work and the proper ty owners are deserving of something for their money.
