Ten years of incessant litigation large sums of money expended, and a persistency attended with unflinch ing determination to have her rights judicially established, have finally re warded Mrs. S. B. Mayer in secur ing title to the Winnifrcd placer hold ing in the town of Mayer. A telegram giving her absolute pos session, and free from further legal troubles, was received yesterday by her attornc3 T. G. Norris, who was officially advised from Washington that the commissioner of the general land office had, on Thursday, author ized patent to issue for the claim in controversy. This decision reverses', in two in stances, that of the Phoenix land of fice, and quiets future title to the tract involved. The history of this litigation is in tercsting. Over 10 years ago, when Joseph Mayer, the husband, was alive, the government filed protest to the application for patent to issue to this placer ground of 20 acres, sit uate in the heart of Mayer, under the supposition of it being non-miner al, and as being valuable for town- site purposes. The second applica tion was" made by Mrs. Mayer, and the contiiition of the government was maintained on the same principle, in which the Phoenix land office gav an adverse decision to her, stipulat ing, however, that patent was with held on the ground that there was not sufficient showing in work re quired. In deciding the issues of the two applications on Eppeal, the gener al land office holds that the ground is mineral, and is subject to location as placer. Patent thereto, is ordered 'o issue, and the decisions of the Phoenix land office arc reversed. The tract in controversy had been prospected scores of times by agents of the government, who maintained the grounds were non-mineral, when it was conclusively proven to the con trary by the placer- gold values re covered. Tiie Winnifrcd tract is sit uated to the cast of and adjoins the main settlement of Mayer, and takes in the right-of-way and buildings of tlih Brjidshaw Mountain Railway Com pany. It is desirable to the town. and is improved by several resi denccs. Mr. and Mrs. Joe Mlaycr first drove their homestake in what is now the thriving town of Mayer, over 30 years ago. A modest little eating station was established for stage travelers and miners passing in and out of that region. Their business prospered, and step by step the place grew, finally reaching an established center of abode. One building after another went up, and finally in a later era Mayer prospered as a permanent md attractive settlement. The found ers of the town have always pursued a generous disposition toward those within and without its confines. The tract of land on which stands the new school house was donated to pub lic education, as well was a strip of the Winnifrcd location also offered for this purpose. In short the energy of the Mayers from first to last to build up has been admitted, and their liber ality in dealing with the many is a tribute to their good citizenship. o SOLDIERS' PAY HELD UP PHOENIX. August 21. Under the ruling of the auditor in refusing to sign warrants for the expense of the national guard, Adjutant-General C. W. Harris sa3's it will have the ef fect of practically' disbanding the guard, unless the banks will cash the certificates issued. Vouchers have been made out for the pay of the members of the guard for the time which they spent in camp at Garden Canyon, but under the ruling of the auditor warrants will not be issued for them. General Harris says that the camp was ordered under the im pression that the decision of the Su perior court would not be appealed from, and further alleges that the law- has not been changed from what it has always been, under which war rants were issued without any ques tion. o For quick and artisiic job work. the Journal-Miner is the place. FATHER FAILED; SON TAKES UP THE WORK (From Saturday's Daily) Heeding the request of his father, Silas D. Preston, whose death oc curred a short time ago at Waco, Texas, his eldest son, A. W. Pres ton, has arrived in this city, and is on the interesting hunt for certain treasure, supposed to be cached in a marked country east of Gillette, in this county. The deceased, it will be rcmem bered, visited Prescott about two years ago, leaving later for Phoenix to outfit for the expedition, and to secure the services of a certain guide to begin his limit for what he stated was a very large sum of money. He was in the field but a short time, how ever, as owing to his old age and ill health, he was physically unable to travel that rough country on foot His version of the lost treasure was freely imparted to a few friends, and was founded on what was later sub stantiated by old-time residents who recalled the episode of the attacl; made bv Indians on the mail coach from Fort McDowell to Fort Whip pic, when the Apaches looted the mail sacks and left with all valuables carried thhrein, traveling northeast from the point of robbery. Mr. Preston, at that time was a trooper of the sixth U. S. cavalry, and in later years came into possession of information from a Mexican wo man at Fort Lowell, near Tucson when his command was transferred from McDowell, that was closely guarded until he left the service. He made five trips to the designated region and failed in each instance to 'ic rewarded, although he stated thcr was no doubt but what the cache was still untouched. The visitor will attempt to unravel the mystery of this hidden wealth and from the lips of his father, will lie guided in his quest. Coincident with this interesting re search ,it will be remembered by many in Prescott that Thomas .D. Long, who passed away several years ago, made annual pilgrimages to the above locality in search of -a- gold cache, and the fact of his also being a trooper of the sixth cavalry, farms a connecting link in this lost treasure hunt, which forms a parallel that has a decidedly fascinating coloring to stimulate the untiring will of those who believe in its reliability. Mr. Long also failed, but he persisted, however, until ill health overtook him, as it did Mr. Preston. Official rec ords of the military show that a rob bcry was committed and the large sum of money aboard the stage was to pa the soldiers at Fort Whipple, Camp Verde and Fort Wallapai, in fhis county, although the exact amount was never given publicity Indians were supposed to have com mitted the crime, but many old timers were of the opinion Mexicans were the perpetrators of. it. Pres ton's and Long's versions of this af fair arc tenable, for the reason they were cavalrymen at that time, and both were in the field to run down the outlaws, who were trailed for man- miles by .their moccasin track1!, THE SAME OLD STORY PORTLAND, August 21. Six offi ccrs and salesmen of the United States Cashier Company, charged with conspiring to fraudulently use the mails for the sale of stocks, were convicted in the United States district court today. o RUEF PAROLED SAX FRANCISCO.

NEAR DEATH BY SMOTHERING Bat Husland, With Aid of Cartlui, Effects Her Deliverance. t Draper. N C Mrs. Helen Dalian, dl this place, says: "I suffered for years, with pains in my left side, and would often almost smother to death. Medicines patched me up for awhile but then I would get wojse again. Final ly, my husband decided ne wanted me to try Cardui, the woman's tonic, so he bought me a bottle and I began using it. It did me more good than all the medi cines I had taken. I have induced many of my friends to try Cardui, and they all say" they have been benefited by its use. There never has been, and never will be, a medicine to compare with Cardui. 1 bel fe it is a good medicine for all womanly trou bles." For over 50 years.
