PAGE THREE LEDGE m flir SPECIAL STOCKHOLDER'S MEETING AUGUST 3 TO ACT ON PROPOSAL TO TAKE GREAT WESTERN SMELTER CORPORATION (From Wednesday's Daily.! A special meeting of the stock' holders of the Rig Ledge Copper Company has been called to be held Tit the company's offices, Sellwood brildiiig, Dulnth, August 3, for the purpose of acting upon a proposal to take over the Great Western Smel ters Corporation. This will involve increasing the capitalization from the present amount of 1.500,000 shares, of a par value of 5 each, to 3,000,fxX) shares. It is reported that with the pro posed changes becoming effective strong financial interests will take T-art in the affairs of the company. Unification of the Rig Ledge interests will be brought about by the pro posed consolidation, which should operate to the distinct advantage of all interests directly affected. The following letter to stockholders was rcnt out with the proxies: "Realizing the fact that a large proportion of our stockholders live at a great distance from this city, we wish to make a brief statement of the reason for calling this meeting. It has been the opinion of many that the connection between the Rig Ledge Company and the Great Western Smelters Corporation should be di rect, and nol merely contractual, as at present. This has been our 'belief from the start, but it did not seem a v se step in the inception of the Rig 1 edge enterprise. We have always intended that, at some opportune time and when it could be done with cut affecting the financial arrangc ncnts of the Rig Ledge Copper Com pany to give your company the op portunity to take over the Great Western properties. We have con cluded that the lime is here for this action. "The reason for tire proposal to in crease the capitalization of your com jinny is for the purpose of taking over the smelter corporation at a low valuation, and for further enlarge ment of the smelter, so that the dc vclopment of both will be carried along co-ordinately and more eco nomically than possible when they arc separate organizations. A full discussion of the said proposed pur chase will be had at the forthcoming meeting, so that all stockholders will be informed as to the values and pos sible benefits of the transaction. It is contemplated that some suitable ar rangement be made to include a treasury reserve for our protection and for the future acquirements of properties such as arc now under consideration. "The aim of the management has always been to further the intrinsic 2luc of your stock both by the de velopment and acquisition of addi tional properties. "Owing to labor troubles through- cut the entire country wc are in the same position as nearly every "other operating copper company, having been confronted with a labor strike and demands which cannot be grant ed. Our properties at the present lime are closed and wc feel this is an opportune time to make this ad justment. " t no time have your properties looked so well, nor have they shown o great ore reserves as at the mo 1'icnt they were closed by these labor demands." DEATH REWARDS FIRM FRIEND IN LIFE (From Wednesday's Daily) Consideration for the afflicted, tempered with many kindly acts in 'lcviating the sufferings of a young ia-i before death occurred, is to be -. rncrously remembered, and Mrs. '. lara Klopfer of this city is the beneficiary of a very large inheritance of the estate of Harry Kathmcycr, v. hose death took place in Prcscott '.it December. This young man of only 26 years was stricken with tuber culosis in Xew York State, and came YVe-t later, arriving in Los Angeles, . i.d stopped at the same hotel as ."irs. Klopfer. The latter noticed his t mariated form, and with a kindly lisposition proffered her services v. i'.hout any remuneration whatever. Strong and fervent friendship be ron the two crystallized in time, .ml under the advice of the deceased it was suggested that Prcscott, Ari zona, would be a fitting place for nurn niL ULl SMELTER him to come for the benefit of a change of climate. Hither both came, ! ?nd Mrs. Klopfer refused to accept any remuneration in making the trip or in caring for 'lier patient. She was unaware of the fct he was well-to-do. The young man failed to rally, and with Mrs. Klopfer at his side the end came. During his last illness Mr. Kathmcycr revealed his circum stances, and when nearing the end was advised that by the death of an aunt, he was the heir of a very large fortune, which in addition to a large amount left by an uncle, made him very wealthy. His conscientious na ture was beautifully typified as his own life was closing, when his will was drawn, wherein he bequeathed to his nurse a large portion of his wealth. The estate is being probated now in the Superior court of this county. She left for Xew York on Monday night, and it is stated is call ed to the old home of her deceased friend in order that the estate may be distributed as the will of Mr. Kr.lhmeyer ordains. En route East, Mrs. Klopfer will visit friends in Chicago. After leav ing Xew York she will visit her old home in Pittsburg, and is to return to Prcscott during the Autumn, en route to Los Angeles, where she will reside. Special Correspondentm- KAXSAS CITY STOCK YARDS,- July 16. Cattle today 32,000 head, biggest run this Summer, market steady to 15 lower, but the best mar ket for the size of the run anybody ever saw, top natives 13.55. Hogs today 10,000, market steady, top $15.S0, same as top in Chicago. Sheep and lambs today 3,5(0, market steady, no choice lambs, but that kind quot able up to 15.50. Beef Cattle. Kansas furnished the biggest share of the rim today, Oklahoma next. then Texas. A large part of the sup- ply was light. weight grass steers, on the fence "between killers and stock crs, and there was some loss on that kind. Prime Missouri steers topped the market at 13.55, highest price ever paid here on the open market. Kansas grass steers sold up to 11.8,5 ranging from 9.25 upwards, and Oklahoma grass steers to killers sold mostly at 9 to 10, some light ones to 7. Xorth Texas cake fed steers sold at 10.20 to 11. Cows sold steady to 10 lower, grass cows $7 to SS.75, canncrs 6 to 7, bulls 6.75 to $8.50, veals up to 13.75. Stockers and Feeders. Corn prospects arc not far enough along to cotmt on for sure, and the country is not quite ready for a run of the proportions of that of today, but best stockers sold steady, $9 for several lots, and downwards, the com mon stockers selling at 6.25 to 7.25. Feeders brought 7.50 to10, stock cows and heifers 6 to S.25. Hogs. Supply at the combined markets fell short of last Monday, and steady prices resulted, choice heavy weights selling up to 15.80, best medium weights 15.70, best lights 15,30, bulk of sales 15 to 15.65. The country promptly quit shipping last week when the market declined 30 to 40 cents, indicating plenty of faith in future prices. Corn is costing big money, but owners refuse to be rush ed in putting hogs on the market There is some bear sentiment, but most dealers believe the market is on a safe footing that will extend through August and September. Sheep and Lambs. Prices have remained unchanged since the first of last week, including today, best lambs worth 15.50, ewes ?9, wethers 10, yearlings 11.50. Fresh mutton and lamb are selling better at Eastern consuming centers than a week ago, and sonic improve ment may be noted soon. Feeding lambs sold at 14 today, at which price it is easy to figure a profit, pro viding fat lambs do not fall below 15 cents a pound. Feeding lambs for Fall delivery arc selling on the rangL around 15 cents a pound. DESERT TRAGEDY IS NARROWLY AVERTED (From Thursday's Daily.) Thomas Gwynnc and S. D. Morgan, miners of this section who arrived during the week from a camp near Searchlight, Xcv., report that a man named Ren Thompson had been pick ed up on the desert near Manvcl in a dying condition for want of water. He was seen .wandering around by an auto party, and after being resus citated, was partially restored to a normal state. On his jcrson were found letters written from Jerome by a woman, and it is surmised he had been cm- ployed by the A. & A. Company. Messrs Morgan and Gwynnc arc re turning to work at Jerome, and arcj to be followed in a short time by others. ME MARKET hABULOUS PRICE FORJMDOL BUYERS OFFER 5G CENTS A POUND; ONE SHIP MENT SOLD. ON CARS WITHOUT WEIGHT QR QUALITY INVESTIGATED (From Thursday's Daily) Range supremacy is now centered to the sheep growing industry, and this distinction is generally admitted in livestock circles from the remark able leap in wool prices during the short period of less than one year. The price a year ago was "below 35 cents and has advanced to the present market quotation of 56 cents a pound. This high price has proved astound ing to the grower, and to substantiate what is actually prevailing in pur chasing centers, G. II. Daggs, a visi tor yesterday from Williams, stated he had refused the above sum for his wool, and would hold for a higher price. Mr. Daggs also stated that he had sold a bunch of 150 bucks, -for which he had been paid 25 per head, or in the aggregate 3,750. "Wc" are playing the game, and the cards arc coming our way; when the break takes place is not material, it cannot be very soon; the tide is carrying our industry on a high wave that is far beyond our expectations,"' was his manner of expressing the situation that has developed since the Euro pcan war broke out. In line with the market conditions at present, and of much interest lo cally, was the transaction made yes terday by A. A. Johns of the Aubrey Investment Co., one of the big sheep outfits of the State, who described a sale which was startling from a bus iness standpoint. His firm had en route to a Roston commission house a large shipment of wool, and while on the cars negotiations for the pur chase were closed on a basis of over 50 cents a pound. After wiring his acceptance, and without the buvcr being aware of the quality of the article, a certified check for 1S,750 was mailed to Mr. Johns, and by him exhibited yesterday. The wool prob ably has reached Roston by this time, and the buyer is in possession. Said MY. Johns: "This market game is a revelation, and brings back recollec tions of the time when the venture some bucked the game of chance by putting his money on a card. Wc sheepmen arc doing the dealing and the 'game is very popular from the number of high-class players. The price received for wool is not only startling, but from present indications is to go higher, if conditions can be accurately judged from supply sources that have been drained recently. Who ever believed that wool would reach such a fabulous price? It is reason able to expect a mining boom from a strike made or an ore content running into the millions in value. Rut this sheep stunt dwarfs any expectations even the wildest of dreamers ever advanced." POULTRY SHOULD BE CHEAPER IN AMERICA WASIIIXGTOX, July IS. A prcs- cnt congestion in the frozen poultry market, shown by figures of the United States department of agricul ture, can be relieved if the retail dealers will handle the goods at a reasonable advance over wholesale prices. This action would make poultry available at prices comparing favorably with other meats according to the findings of a conference just held here between wholesale poultrj distributors and officials of the de partment of agriculture. Roth par ties to the conference say that more poultry should be eaten when the facts are understood by the consum er; an -increased use of poultry now, in the opinion of the department, will tend to conserve other meats which arc of more importance to Americans and their Allies in Europe. The re tailers, as well as wholesalers, it is poiuicu out, sitouiu am m relieving the congestion. Rroiling chickens arc especially abundant and those of prime quality sold in June on the wholesale market in Xew York at an average price of 22 cents a pound. A year before tin average price was 27 cents during the same month. There arc unusually heavy holdings of dressed poultry in cold storage. Unless these stocks are moved quickly, farmers who have in creased this year's flocks iii response to a patriotic appeal will not have normal marketing conditions when their surplus comes on the market. 'I'lii. mrttHC 4 ! -T.f.. . ....... ,. . .b.vm ..... t...Kv.- aui.imi.-s u. poultry in the Summer of 1916 were unusually low because of small orig- inal holdings and large export dc mands. This resulted in unusual! high prices to producers during the Fall and Winter of 1916. The supply was unexpectedly heavy and large stocks were stored at high cost Then export demands fell off, th wave of economy affected the home demand, and the storage stocks mov ed slowly. The net results, accord ing to the department, is that almost everybody ought to enjoy chicken dinners now at decidedly reduced prices, and without a feeling that they are using up needed meat sup plies. In short, it is said to depend on the retailers whether cheaper chickens will be available. SILVER LANE IS IN RUBY ORE AT 300 FEET (From Thursday's Uaily.) The, tunnel on the 400-foot adit now being driven by the Silver Lane Min ing Company whose property is locat cd eight miles south of Crown King, is in 300 feet and has encountered ruby silver in the breast. This tun ncl is being driven on the vein to get- under the shoot which was stoped from the 200 adit in the early "SOs, The vein is four feet wide, a fissure in granite, and is one of the famous early-day producers of Yavapai conn ty. The tunnel will be run to the 700- foot point. The main ore shoot should be encountered at 650 feet. The presence of high grade silver at this stage of development lead the management to believe that they arc close to a shoot of ore. Th Lane ore averages better than 200 ounces silver. The company is full financed, principally by Ttisbcc ant' Douglas capital, although a" few this section arc fortunate to be stockholders. Xo stock is offered for sale. i The Rose Marie Mine. A recent strike of high grade gob: ore has been made on the Rose Marie. The ore runs well over 2,000 per ton in gold, and the lucky owners have taken out over 50 sacks of thi grade" of ore during the past week. The Rose Marie has produced quite a bit of bullion in the past the best grade ore being run through an ar- rastra. The Rose Marie is located within two miles of the Silver Lan mine, and is in a proven high grad district. The vein is from 2xi to four feet wide and is a good milling propo sition. The Green Gulch Company. Preparations arc being made to in stall a drill on the holdings of th Green Gulch Mining Company. Thi company owns 40 claims in the same district and adjoining the Silver Lane mine. They have a good copper show ing over a large area ami arc pre paring to prove up the ground.

Among the trophies of Tuesday morning's Wobbly drive were several I. W. W. song books with blood red covers. The covers carry a reproduc tion of the I. W. -W. emblem and a line announcing that the publication is "to fan the flames of discontent." Xcarly all the songs arc violently seditious in character, but not more so than one by John F.

Cobtirn, recently of Globe. property occupies one of the sightly locations in the town, com manding a wide panorama of the I j valleys and mountain peaks surround- J . ing the city. The modern complete- j ncss of the dwelling, and the high cultivation of the grounds about it, make up residence conditions that arc possible to few other places than this favored section. Mr. and Mrs. Hope will continue their residence in Prcs cott, and no change is contemplated so far as their interests in The Bash-ford-Burmister Company are con cerned. Mr. Coburn and his family are de sirable and welcome acquisitions to . the community, and their residence will be permanent, as they have be come prominently identified with this section. Mr. Coburn and his brother recently purchased the cattle range and holdings of Fain & Heath in the Bloody Basin district. They also have large cattle interests near Globe. COURT GIVES MRS. DICKSON FREEDOM (From Thursday's Daily.) Cora Brink Dickson got her liberty, her three children, alimony amount ing to 25 a month and her costs and attorney's fees, and Duff Dickson got I J his freedom and a severe lecture on j improvidence from Judge Frank II. Lyman, all in the course ot settling the divorce suit of these people yesterday. Kirklam) i There was a great deal of discus sion of the affairs of this family. The plaintiff contended that Mr. Dickson ! worked but scnii-occasionally and then won but scant wage. He con tended that everything he made, he turned over to his wife, and that she did all the spending in that family. j Asfccd ,)mv n,a(,e am, her, he was compelled to state that it wasn't very much. The question of food and clothing for the wife and three children was very thoroughly threshed out by the attorneys and Judge Lyman himself took a hand in the questioning. Mrs. Clark Brink, a sister-in-law of the plaintiff, asked if Dickson provid ed enough clothes for his family, stated naively that they didn't wear much clothing in Kirkland, aii asser tion that will no doubt cause Kirk land to be regarded as a sort of inin iaturc and modern Garden of Eden. NAVY AGREES WITH FARLEY, HE WRITES (Fom Friday's Daily.) Gaining 15 pounds in weight and all muscle, Jimmy Farley, former deputy clerk of the Superior court, has found that navv life agrees with him.

"I have gained 15 pounds and have not an ounce of surplus flesh on .my -frame. Hard as nails from the cold Shower at 5:30 a. m. every day. This is sure the life; you couldn't drag me away from it. It is far better than one would imagine." The rookies get shore leave" three times a week.
