Tyo hundred and twenty-two men out of the first 794 called for physical examination by the local board have failed to put in an appearance, al though over a week was given be tween the time of the summons and the date set for their reporting. Since that time, five days more elapsed, dur ing which any of them were privil eged to show up without penalty. Of the following list, 152 arc judged to be aliens by their names. The aliens include Mexicans, Austrians, Germans and Serbians, apparently though some of them may have taken out their first papers. These will be offset by the men having English names, who arc natives of Great Brit ain, Ireland and Canada. Seventy of the following arc judged to be citizens: Called for August 7th. 357 358 365 371 372 384 3S9 390 391 409 411 415 417 419 420 427 42S 439 443 444 446 450 456 459 464 469 474 476 4S1 485 496 505 509 510 51S 520 521 522 524 526 539 3 5 9 10 11 13 16 17 22 26 30 36 40 51 55 56 5S 61 69 78 81 84 92 99 1Q0 102 103 113 114 117 118 122 123 126 128 130 134 135 137 142. 146 147 151 155 165 169 175 178 183 185 189 192 193 199 211 212 216 219 224 226 237 240 241 244 246 247 253 258 259 260 263 266 269 271 275 278 279 286 2fl) 295 296 3()3 305 307 310 314 323 325 330 336 344 349 351 353 Carter, Geo.

LARGE NUMBER ASKS TO BE EXCUSED EXEMPTION BOARD IS ASKING HELP OF THE CITIZENS IN EFFORT TO SPOT FRAUDS OF WOULD BE SLACKERS. (Continued on Page Six) In an effort to determine just who is really entitled to exemption and who is not, the local exemption board yesterday issued a call to the citizens of Yavapai county, asking them to aid the board in every possible way, especially in the matter of supplying information which will tend to "show up" any drafted man who is attempt ing to claim an exemption on fraud ulent grounds. Owing to the large number of exemptions which has so far been filed, it is next to impossible' for the board to spot any fraudulent claims, and for this reason it hopes that the residents of the county will co-operate with it in the effort to pick out any "phoney" claims. The list of those who liavc claimed exemption from among the number which were examined on August 13, 14 and 15, is published herewith, and if anyone has any personal knowl edge regarding the genuineness of the exemption pleas, the board will welcome a communication stating the circumstances. All information of this kind will be held in strict confi dence, and if a slacker is caught filing an exemption pica which is not back ed up by facts, he will be taken in tow by the authorities, and the name of the party who furnished the infor mation against the man will never reach the latter's cars. The exemp tion pleas in the following list come from men whose serial numbers arc from 795 to 1558. Win. W.

Judgi e Smith Hears Probate Matters (Continued from Page One) 'A number of probate matters were up for the consideration of Judge Frank O. Smith in the Superior court yesterday afternoon, and at this time a number of estates were settled up and the administrators relieved from further responsibility. Decrees establishing notices to creditors were made and entered in the estates of Hincs II. Beavers, G. L. Coleman and James H. Wright. A decree of distribution was enter ed in matter of estate of the late Ernest P.cssi, and the second annual report of the administrator of the es tate of W. J. Mulvcnon was filed and approved. M'rs. E. M. Thomas has been named as administratrix of the estate of E. G. Gray, deceased, and her bond fixed in the sum of SI, 000. Xo ap praiscrs were appointed for this es tate, as the property consists cntircly of cash. The notice to creditors was ordered published. P. W. O'Sullivan was named as ad ministrator of the estate of Charles Kingslcy, deceased, and filed his bond of $1,000. Messrs. P. J. Kcohanc, C. E. Gentry and E. A. McSwiggin were named as appraisers. The customary notice to creditors was ordered issued. A decree of distribution was order ed in matter of estate of the late Clara Lanzandorf, the final account ing of the administrator having been filed and approved. It is understood that the bulk of the estate will go t European relatives of the deceased. C. E. Chaiupic, administrator of the estate of F. A. Lchmaiin, filed his final accounting together with a state ment to the effect that the estate is worth $1,063 after the debts have been paid. The reports state that the property left by the deceased con sisted entirely of mining claims in the Castle Creek district, near the Maricopa county line According to the statement of the administrator, the property was worthless financially until much work and exploration had been done on it, and that after some development had been carried out, the group was sold for sufficient money to discharge all indebtedness against the estate and leave the bal ance above mentioned. The petition for the administrator's discharge will come up on August 31st. THREE COUPLES WED (From Saturday's Dailw. Rev. J. H. Lcwin, pastor of the Prcscott M.

The right of sheriffs and deputies to search and detain much be exercised with caution and judgment and with the least incon venience and expense to the public Henceforth, I shall look to the of ficials of Cochise and all Arizona counties for co-operation in the en forcement of our laws. It will be a disgraceful blot on the history of this State if we, the responsible officers, arc obliged to admit that our proper functions, for the administration and preservation of law and order, have broken down and that the last resort, martial law, must be invoked. Labor unions responsible to cen tralized authority and founded upon sane, economic principles, arc right fully a part of our industrial system, and must receive from you and mc that consideration which is legally and morally their right; in like re gard do I hold the law-abiding work er, who is not affiliated with unions, believing that every one has the right of opinion and action, within legal bounds, without interference with, or intimidation of, personal liberty, the mightiest pillar in our sacred consti tution. But, the principles of the Industrial Workers of the World arc a stench in the nostrils of decent Americans. Insofar as my power, as governor of Arizona, extends, I shall not tolerate, in the remotest degree, their applica tion in Arizona. A menace to civic well-being and industrial progress in time of peace, the toleration of such doctrines, during a state of war, is treason. In my inaugural address, I express cd the belief, in reference to the sub ject of labor and capital: "A due regard for the interests and future prosperity of all the people and a full development of our industrial and natural resources demand the cs tablishmcnt of correct principles in our economic laws and a better un dcrstanding between labor and capi tal. This problem is charged witl: great difficulties and is one which is of highest importance to solve on lines of common sense and a devo tion to the right. We arc living today in an age of federation and combina tion. Business men find they must work through corporations, laboring men find it necessary to work in fed eration, and both have become factors of modern industrial life. Both kinds of federation, capitalistic and labor. can do much good, likewise they can do much evil. Each must refrain from arbitrary or dictatorial interfer ence with the rights of others. Or ganized capital and organized labor must know that in the end they must be brought into harmony with one another in the interests of the general public: and the conduct of each must conform to the fundamental rules ot obedience to the law, or individual freedom, and of justice and fair deal ing to all. Every employer, every wage-earner, must be guaranteed his liberty and his right to do as he likes with his nroucrty or his labor, so long as he docs not infringe upon the richts of others. "It is. of utmost importance that employer and employe should en dcavor to appreciate each the view point of the other and the ultimate disastrous result if either constantly maintains an attitude of hostility and distrust. Class prejudice is more in jurious and destructive to industrial riwl sncial welfare than sectional. racial or religious animosity. W c can get good government and enjoy pros perity and contentment only upon condition that we keep true to the principles upon which this nation was founded, and judge each man upon his individual merits and not as a part of a class. It should be under stood by all that the only attractive field for business investment, honest labor and contented people is where law is the rule of conduct and where courts, not mobs, execute its man dates. So far as the constitutional powers of the State relate to these matters of general and vital moment to the welfare of the State, they should be exercised in conformity with the principles herein set forth. "We, as a people, have a govern ment worthy of our full respect and affection, a domain magnificent in ex tent, good to look upon, a place for hanpv homes and full of generous suggestions to enterprise anu iar. , t t i God has placed upon our lands a,. ACTIVITY IN THE CON STELLATION FIELD SHOWS RESUMPTION OF OLD MINES BY NEW OPERATORS. (Continued on Page Six) "This Fall will sec more activity, backed by heavier investments, than has ever been known in the Constella tion country," writes Sam F. Powell, an old-time resident and mine owner of that field. Powell reviews condi tions by mentioning the following movements: "The Inspiration Company is shap ing up its affairs in a manner to at tract comment, and a new wagon road is now being constructed from the railroad to the camp, for hauling in a large operating equipment. Mine work also has started on the Eagle claim, which is making an excellent showing. A large outlay is to be made and quite a camp is to be established. "The old Margarctic property, bet. tcr known by the name of the Unieda Mining Co., situated near the Monte Christo, for many years idle, is now working in full blast, and reports from the camp would indicate an at tractive proposition. The death of the original owner handicapped this property from becoming active, bin finally its affairs have been shaped up by which large and permanent opera-, tions have started at last. "The Abe Lincoln has been revived and the payroll now numbers 58 men, while the Gold Bar, situated close by has reached a depth of 600 feet and is one of the most active properties in the district. "The affairs of the White Gold Mining Co. have been adjusted by which operations are to begin imme diately, the receivership having been taken out of the courts, after several years of litigation. There is very much interest shown over this movc mcnt; froni the fact that the mine had a fine showing, when suspension oc curred after the mill had been de stroyed by fire It is probable Leon ard L. White will again be in charge owing to his knowledge of under ground workings and his capability to direct. "The Wulfernite Company, in mine and mill operations, flow has a force of 20 miners employed, and good re ports are being received from thi new camp. "The Golden State has been revived with a small force employed, .while the River nunc also is getting in line to become active early in the Fall. "The Monte Christo shows no change in depth made, and continues to be the center of admiration of the mining country for its marvelous values in the white metal. With sil ver over 87 cents, it is reported that heavy production may follow. The tonnage is of such immensity as to be incalculable, not even the owners having the slightest knowledge of its resources." John Ward Takes The Back Track After Many Years John Ward, who in the early 'SOs - . . r T- t . was a mining operator oi iuikcj creek, has returned from Goldfield, Xcvada, to again become identified witli this county, but in the pursuit of oil, being a principal of the ncwly organized Chino Oil Mining Co., ... . - .t . i,ni.t wlucil lias acquircu iauusui wir ings in the field where a rush is now going on. lie nas maac inspttiiuna f the formation, from which lie de cided to become heavily interested.
