WEEKLY JOURNAL-MINER, WEDNESDAY MORNING, JUNE 14, 1916.
PAGE FIVE REPUBLICANS NOMINATE HUGHES AND FAIRBANKS Jurist is Chosen on Third Ballot By Chicago Convention; Selection Is Unanimous by Delegates. CHICAGO, June 10. Colonel presidency by the Progressive national convention today after four days of uproar and tumult in which delegates never wavered in their allegiance or cast a passing glance at another man. Three minutes before the convention adjourned, Chairman Robins read a brief message received from Colonel Roosevelt declining to accept the nomination at this time. The significance of the message, with the announcement that if the Progressive national committee found subsequent statements of Hughes to its liking his non-acceptance of the nomination should stand as the last word, was lost on the tired throng, worn out by its own enthusiasm and long delays over the peace parley with Republicans. John M1. Parker, of Louisiana, was nominated for vice-president after such action was urged by Governor Hiram Johnson, who said it was proper that a "man from the South should be the running mate of our leader." Both nominations were made by acclama tion. Before they left the hall, dele gates promised more than $80,000 to carry on their fight. The only pro test of the day came when a rule to permit the notional committee to fill vacancies was proposed. The rule was quickly adopted, however, when lead ers explained that it was the perfunc tory thing done by all conventions to provide for "death and other casual tics." Nothing to Say. OYSTER BAY, June 10. Colonel Roosevelt summoned press corres pondents to Sagamore Hill at 6 o'clock tonight to ttll them he had tentatively refused the Progressive nomination to the presidency, and that had nothing to add to what he said in his telegram to the convention in regard to his present position.

Charles Warren Fairbanks, of Indiana, elected vice-president with Roosevelt in place on the Republican ticket.

Loving on the Copper Basin road on Friday night when their car struck a boulder seven miles out of thc .city, which compelled them to abandon thc trip, Mr. Loving walking to thc city fcr assistance.

Thc war office announced today that, continu ing their successes in Volyhnia and Galicia, thc Russians have captured 97 officers and 5,300 men". THREE-CENT FOR PEOPLE OF Zl (From Sunday's Daily) PHOENIX, June 10. Three-cent passenger fare on thc lines of the Santa Fc, and Southern Pacific, and rates of 3'i and 4 cents a mile on thc Arizona Eastern are prescribed in an order of thc Arizona corporation com mission issued Saturday. Three cents a mile is also prescribed on thc line of the Ray & Gila Valley railroad. Existing passenger rates on other railroads operating in Arizona are not disturbed by thc order, which be comes effective August 1st. The commission's order affects all thc lines of thc Santa Fe and South ern Pacific within the State, including both main and branch lines, or lines being operated under lease. Thc three-cent rate, however, docs not ap ply to the Arizona Eastern railroaJ, a subsidiary of thc Southern Pacific Company, connecting Phoenix and thc Salt River valley with the main line of thc Southern Pacific at Mari copa, and thc Globe-Miami district with thc main line at Bowie. Thc passenger fare on the Arizona East ern is hxed at four cents a mile on thc Globe and Cochise divisions and at three and one-half cents on thc Phoenix division, which includes thc line to Florence, Haydcn and Winkcl man. Thc order, as it affects thc Arizona Eastern is effective for 90 days ,at thc end of which time thc road is to furnish thc commission with certain data to be prescribed as to expenses and profits under thc new order. Thc commission's order is the re' suit of an exhaustive investigation of passenger rates within thc State ot Arizona. When Arizona became State one of thc first bills to pass the legislature provided for three-cent fare on all thc railroads of thc State. A referendum was invoked against the measure, but before the next dec lion thc State Supreme court handed down a decision which left all regula tion of railroad rates to thc corpora' tion commission. The referred meas ure was approved by a large majority at thc general election in 1914, but thc vote on thc question had no effect at that time in thc light of the Supreme court decision. Existing passenger rates range from four to ten cents a mile, thc latter high rate applying on some of the smaller roads to mining camps. NEW BUILDINGS PLANNED FOR JEROME Special Correspondence. JEROME, Junc 10. Building opcr ations on an extensive scale arc about to be commenced in Jerome by out side parties who have decided thai this is the best camp in thc State at present and one whose future is as surcd. In the sale of I,ots 7 and 8 of Block 3, next to the Grand Central hotel, by Louis Issoglio and wife to C. R. Welch, a Colorado man, rumor has it that .1 substantial brick build ing will be erected on thc lots with thc 50-foot frontage. There arc two other men in thc city who arc contemplating thc crcc tion of a building fronting on both Main street and Hull avenue. This will also be a brick and concrete structure In this connection, it might be statec.' that Hull avenue is looming up as business street down near its junc tion with Main. Thc Bank of Arizona is doubling its office space by using thc adjoininp room to its present quarters. Other improvements in thc way of fine residences arc both under way and contemplated. GALA ATTIRE IS ASSURED FOR BIG SHOW (From Sunday's Daily) That Prescott will be in gala atlin for thc Frontier Days' cclcbratioi has already Lean determined by th Frontier Days management. Every cowboy attending the Frontier Days will be here in his bright cowboy out fit to line-up for thc grand parade ol Frontier Days' contestants and visit ing horsemen from Frontier Days' headquarters, around thc plaza and tc thc Frontier Days grounds. Thc following prizes will be award cd to the five horsemen appearing ii all three days' parade having thc mos' handsome and best outfit and horse and displaying thc best horseman ship: First prize, $25; second, $20: third, $lo; fourth, $10; fifth, $3. It will behoove every person in Prcscot to make arrangements early for their show shirts and hats, so that when thc big celebration opens their ap pearance will correspond with tlr. spirit of thc day. "L)oc" Norwood has already entered into competition with "Eddy" Kastner as to which shall be crowned "queen of thc Fron tier Days," and each insists that thi honor will fall to himself. Already, many inquiries have been received by thc management as tr. whether the Frontier Days hats will he in evidence again this year and to this end Dave Biles has ordered a supply of 250 of thc big Prescott Frontier Days chapcaus. and these will be sold to those placing their orders first. Although thc bright Frontier Days shirts will be at :i premium this year, due to til" fact that German dye cannot be had yet most of the stores will carry a good supply of Western shirts in reds, pur R N ples, yellows and pinks. Now is the time to prepare for your attire and each and -every citizen should sec to it, that his appearance lends to thc spirit of thc "good old days when the cowboy was king." Many of thc cowboys are drifting in daily, getting themselves lined up for the various events. "Lone" Jor dan drifted in yesterday with thc good new's that Tie had spread the Frontier Days doctrine to all of thc boys in the Globe section and that no less than 15 will be in from that dis trict to compete for the prize monies. In fact many of them arc so sure of cutting in the money ,that they have planned to go from the Prescott Frontier Days to thc "Stampede" at New York City, on thc winnings they will make here. He stated that keen interest is being taken by all the cow boys and cowmen throughout the State in the world's championship broncho busting contest and it is with thc intention of striving for this hon or that many of the boys from thc south will ccmc up and tackle the Frontier Days "outlaws." 5 CONVENTIONS DURING JULY IN PRESCOTT (Fiom Friday's Daily.) During Frontier Days, Prescott may well be termed the "convention city" of Arizona, for at that time no less than five conventions will be held here. Indications now point that there will be a record-breaking crowd in at tendance during the four days' cele bration. It is roughly estimated that these conventions will bring in no less than several hundred extra visit ors. Commencing on the 1st of July and extending to the 2nd, thc Knights oi Columbus will start thc ball rolling, when drill team work will be held, with at least 50 outside members in attendance. On thc 3rd, thc Yavapai County Cattle Growers' Association will meet, and at noon on the Fourth, the Phoenix Chamber of Commerce will arrive with a special excursion train from thc Salt River valley. On July 5th, thc grand Frontier Days ceremonial of thc Knights of Pythias, will take place, when El Yemamah Temple, No. 65. will hold its famous Dokcy celebration. On the 6th, will be thc meeting of the Republican State convention, which adjourned here from Tucson. It is expected that no less than 225 delegates will be in attendance. While not properly termed a con vention, during thc Frontier Days a reunion of the public school class of 1875 and 1876 will be held. John Rob erts and I. P. Burnett arc taking charge of this reunion and are arrang ing for a reunion of the old-timers of Prescott. With C. E. Gentry, in full charge of thc accommodations committee, every one visiting Prescott is assured of comfortable accommodations. It has been thc boast of Prescott that through Mr. Gentry's capable work, and that of his assistants, no visitor has ever gone wanting for accommo dations during one of these celebra tions. Thc Frontier Days committee has urged upon all those desiring to attend this year's celebration, thcad-visabilitj- of making their reservations early. Concessions men arc arriving daily to make arrangements for the various "hot dog" and other stands during thc celebration. No less than ten have interviewed the concessions com mittee during the past week, and it now looks as though plenty of amuse ment will be on hand for the child ren. including a mcrry-go-round. Thi grounds committee has been busily at work getting the track in shape and thc roads leading thereto. Jaynes Is Honored As Committeeman & 5 Special to thc Journal-Miner. CHICAGO, Junc 10. Allan B. Jayncs, publisher of the Tucson Citizen, was today un animously elected Republican national committeeman for Arizona. Although there were other open and tentative can didates for thc honor, it went to Mr. Jayncs by reason of thc fact that he conducted thc Hughes campaign in his own State, and therefore was con sidered thc logical man for thc place. Another consideration was that Mr. Jayncs runs one of thc only two Republican dailies in Arizona, thc other being the Prescott Journal Miner. Thc publishers of the latter supported thc candidacy of thc Tucson newspaperman and were the first persons to broach his name for thc posi tion at thc convention in Tuc son, May 6th of this year. O 'J 5 5 -3 O 3 5 O 5 6 5 5 5 CONTRACTORS TAKE OVER GRANITE WORK (Fiom Thursday's Daily.) Actual construction work on the new court house in this city is ex pected to begin next week, or a short time after the arrival of two carloads of machinery that arc due today, con sisting of three large derricks, two surfacers, and air compressor, and a large assortment of tools. This equip ment is to be installed at the Larkin granite quarry on thc Denny ranch, in Miller valley, which has been taken over by Contractors Rogers & Ash- ton. That point for several mouths will be the principal operating center in providing a supply of this building material. Thc granite will be shaped at these works and cxpcr stone ma sons arc to arrive later. Thc above contractors arc very much pleased with the high class, character of gran ite at tnc aboc point, and with the short haul to the city of less than 1'.. miles. HIGHGRAOERS INDENTURE IL A&OOO SMELTER OF FOUR IDLE QUARTZ MILLS NEAR THIS CITY ARE RE LIEVED OF THEIR COP PER PLATES. (From Sunday's Daily.) An attorney of this city, who repre sents four defunct mining companies, which have milling plants on their idle properties, imparted thc surpris ing news yesterday that he had been advised of highgraders entering these premises and taking away full sets of copper plates used in each of these mills. Thc aggregate weight of these util ities is estimated at over 2,500 pounds, and their value runs to over $2,000. In each case there was no keeper at thc plant, and thc thieves were per mitted a free hand without being mo lested. An examination of thc grounds showed that ?. team had been used in one robbery, and the tracks of thc wagon were followed to a certain point on the main highway. After ripping off thc copper plates other sections of thc mill .buildings were visited, and every article in which copper figured was also stolen. Thc copper plate attachment to a quartz mill has as a rule a high valuation, based on age aud usage in absorbing gold. A case is recalled where a set of plates from a five-stamp mill in this county, shipped to thc Sclby Smelt ing Co., in San Francisco, brought a total of $762, and from which it is be lieved the gold recovered represented over half thc above sum. Thcoldcr the plate thc more valuable is a term to be generally applied to these nec essary attachments to thc standard gold mill. Thc robberies follow those of a few weeks ago in this city when the idle plant of thc Arizona Brewing Co., was entered, and thc copper bottoms of two large tanks were sawed off, and these vessels made worthless. Thc brewery plant was also relieved ot other articles in which copper formed a base in making. The bold ness of the jobberies going on is oc casioning wide comment, and mill owners arc diligently protecting their interests in certain cases. SAD MEMORIES OF LONG AGO REVIVED (From Sunday Daily) Recollections of Apache days in this section arc revived by the arrival from Glrti Ell n, Cal.. of T. L. Lchi, -.rn cf M. V. Lchi, who was a victim ol the Indian over 42 years ago, when he was killed in Bell s canyon, neat Kirkland valley, afterwards being scalped and burned. Mr. Lcni was an Indian agent, with headquarters at Fort Whipple, and thc mission of his son is for no other purpose than to investigate his death and place in thc family memoirs data thereof. Thc deceased bore a prom inent name in early days of this re gion in temporizing with the Apaches through moral suasion and Christian teachings. For a time nc succeeded, and to his credit over 75 Indians were pacified and converted. On h's last trip in a buckboard from Whipple to Camp Date creek, he was waylaid in Bell's canyon, by the Indians he knew so well, and shot down, with his clerk. Thc body of thc latter after death was not disturbed, but that of Mr. Lchi. however, was frigntfully mutilated. placed on a huge boulder and burned to a crisp. Lehi's death occasioned nation-wide comment at the time. When killed he was en route to San Francisco to join his wife and family, among thc lattct bcinc his son who is now in this city. a baby boy at that time in thc craJIc. Thc visitor will leave in a fcw days to nhototrranh the scene where his fath cr was killed, and which place still j shows thc charred boulder on which thc body was cremated.

Friday night at about 9:30 o'clock fire destroyed thc sampling mill, thc ore bins and a portion of thc aerial tramway of thc Consolidated Arizona Smelting Co., at Humboldt, with a loss approximately of over $50,000. The fire originated, it is stated from an electric motor, and when dis covered had made such headway as to be uncontrollable. Thc switch en gine of thc S. F.

Thc property de stroyed will not disturb future smelt ing operations of the company so far as its own holdings arc to be consid ered. The custom service however, will be affected, until a new mill is in stalled. MIRACULOUS IS THE ESCAPE OF FRANK WAGER (From Saturday's Daily) Frank E. Wager, one of the best known mining men in this county, was. the victim of a frightful acci dent at his camp in Tiptop district Wednesday afternoon, when a box of giant powder exploded in his hands, tearing awav one side of his face, in juring him internally, and one of his eyes being destroyed. It is stated that Wager procured the powder trom an old warehouse where it had been stored for over 14 years, and while removing the saw dust from the inside, that had become packed in a solid state, his pick struck with force sufficient to cause thc explosion, that was so terrific as to throw him several feet in the air. His escape from instant death under thc circumstances seems a miracle. Powder of the age above mention ed, is a dangerous article to handle even in a careful manner. stated min ing men yesterday in this city, ow ing' to its crystalizcd state, thc nitro glycerine content being susceptible to exploding by thc slightest disturb ance. Wager was taken to Phoenix a few hours later by N. H. Getchcll and John Lindell, in their auto, and placed in Mercy hospital.
