WEEKLY JOURNAL'-MINER, WEDNESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 4, 1917.
PAGE FOUR IS OF THISJIATE IN LETTER TO GOVERNOR CAMPBELL, COL. YULE COMMENDS MEN FOR GOOD DISCIPLINE AND LOAN CONTRIBUTIONS. (From Friday's Daily.) The following letter from Colonel F H. Yule, commanding the 340th Field artillery, national army, to Gov ernor Thomas E. Campbell is of such importance in regard to the doings of the Arizona boys, that it is herewith published: Headquarters, 340th Field Artillery, X. A., Camp Funston, Kansas, October 31. 1917. From: E. H. Yule, Colonel, 340th F. A.. X. A. To: Hon. Thomas E. Campbell, Governor of the State of Arizona, State House, Phoenix, Arizona. Subject: Amount subscribed for bene fit of football teams, ct cetera. 1. I ajn in receipt of your two let ters of October 19th and 23rd, enclos ing checks for $157 and $172 respect ively. T have turned this money into the regimental fund, and immediately had it checked out to the eight organ izations of the regiment, one-eighth to each, viz; to Headquarters Com pany, Supply Company, BattericsA, B, C, D, E and F. 2. All of the above organizations have football teams, and they certain ly appreciate having ihc money. We have had several intra-rcgimcntal games, but have not, as yet played anybody outside of the regiment. The men derive a great deal of benefit from playing football and practising. 3. Within the last three hours, a football has struck my office window once, and hit the papcroid roof twice so I guess they arc getting some en joyment out of it. Occasionally T attend "sick-call" and I find that a great many men arc reporting, "bunged up'' from playing football so I guess there is lots going on that I don't sec: all of which goes to make a good regiment. As you say in yom letter you have gotten lots of enjoy ment out of football: 1 might say that I also have, although 1 never played the game. During my college days. I was considered too scant and light for football, and was worked oil the track-team; was in all the long-distance runs, which, in a way, calls for about as much courage as playing football. 4. I am sure that all in the regi ment appreciate getting the remit tance from home, and it will be spent' for football supplies only. In fact. most of the outfits have already spent ' moiiy for football outfits raised by subscriptions from the men. Xow that money is coming from home, this! releases that much of the battery funds, which they can use for other purposes. 5. The regiment is doing very nice ly, considering the equipment that wc have to work with. At present wc T HIGH PRASE VN HANK The full text of President Wilson's revealed in us.

I am very much pleased at the conduct of the Arizona men. There have been no infractions of discipline, which savs a whole lot in itself, con- jsidcring that the men have suffered quite a little hardship here on account of the variable weather. 7. The regiment did wonderfully well on the second Liberty Loan cam paign, subscribing $135,100, which is $83.40 per capita. Most of the time during the campaign wc led all of the regiments of the division, but at last the Missouri troops beat us out. The officer 1 had in charge was requested to figure the per capita amount to sec if wc had pulled up into the lead, aftct a little quiet canvassing that wc did: he informed me that our per capita was sufficiently ahead of the other regiments but it turned out that he was mistaken in his figures and wc lost out. Wc all confidently expected to win in the campaign. About $4,000 more would have put us in thclcad. I have $1,000 more up my sleeve and could easily have raised the other (with a little coercion). I am very much disappointed over it and I guess the entire regiment is. How ever, you can assure the State of Ari zona the regiment came across nobly just as I am sure it will always do. (Signed) E. H. YULE, Colonel, 340th F. A., X. A., Commanding. CITY SPRINGS UP ON SHORES OF FRISCO BAY SAX FRAXCISCO, Xov. 7. The L'nitcd States government has taken over the site of California City, "the city that was to be". on the East Marin county shore near here. It is now buzzing with enterprise, centering around a big coaling sta tion. It was recently mentioned as the site for a naval base and the "city that was to be" is gradually being shaped into "the city that is," a war time. Federal city. Thirtv or so years ago a band of capitalists planned a city which was to rival San Francisco. Ringed by hills on three sides, with a perennial calm "sub harbor" on San Pablo bay connecting with San Francisco bay and the Golden Gate, the place was thought to offer an ideal site. To the northeast loomed Point San Qucntin like a fortress. Xearby was a cove where condemned boats were burned. Many a bark which had sailed all oceans was brought there and stripped of her copper and all metal fittings. Then the torch was applied, usually at night, and half of the great bay was illuminated as the vessel burned to the water's edge. The flames would bring out the frowning pillars of the prison on San Qucntin point, black and monolitic against the fire crimsoncd sky. For various reasons the city ven ture collapsed. Money was lacking and colonization efforts failed. A large powder mill and a brick works which were started closed down and the place was left to much of its ele mental loneliness until recently. supply the needs of those associated with us as well as our own. A new light shines about us. The great duties of a day awaken a new and greater national spirit in us. Wc shall never again be divided or wonder what stuff we arc made of. "And while wc render thanks for these things let us pray Almighty God tllat in all humbleness of spirit we may look always to Him for guidance; that we may be kept constant in the spirit and purpose of service; that by His grace our minds may be directed land our hands strengthened: and that l m ins goou nine uucuj anu sciumj and peace and the comradeship of a common justice may be vouchsafed all the nations of the earth. "Wherefore, 1, Woodrow Wilson, president of the United States of America, do hereby designate Thiirs day, the 29th day of Xoveinbcr, next as a day of thanksgiving and prayer iand invite the people throughout the of nations. "In Witness Whereof, I have here onto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.

WASHIXGTOX, Xov. 8. Shall the present selective conscription act be amended? Shall the ages of those subject to its operations be revised both upward and downward? These arc to be among the big questions argued as soon as congress assembles for its regular session in December. Congressman Julius Kahn has announced his intention of pro posing an amendment to compel the registration of all citizens from 18 to 40 inclusive, giving America a reserve of 21,000,000 to draw upon. The present ages arc from 21 to 31. The war department's original plan was for men from 18 to 25. There was objection to taking those who did not yet have a vote, and congress amended the act to make it read from 21 to 40. Then there was objection that between the ages of 31 and 40 a vast majority of men had dependent families. So the present figures were finally reached. Right after Kahn announced his in tention of proposing an amendment in December, it was stated that Secre tary of War Baker was opposed to any change. Kahn wired back from California that at least part of his amendment was misunderstood. He docs not mean that boys of 18 to 21j,iustry jlavc i,ccn drawn up and will shall be sent into the trenches, but jjC ,)Ut jnto operation as soon as the he docs want them registered and given preliminary training, so that when they become 21 they will be ready to take their place in the fight ing lines. He also said that no man over 31 would be called for active service until those in the present draft limits had all been called up for ex amination and possible service. "Wc must make preparations," said Kahn, "as if the war were going to last forever. That will be the surer way to bring the war to a successful end and to establish a peace that will last.'; Major General Crowdcr, provost marshal o.f the army, who drew tip the practical working arrangements for the draft said: "1 have no official opinion to voice on the question of raising the age limit above 30 years. As a practical matter, it is not necessary to raise the. age limit. Wc have a great reservoir still untapped in the men between 21 and 31. Wc examined only a little more than 2,000.000 out of the 10,000. 000 registered, in order to secure our army of over 600,000, and all wc have to do is to go on and examine the other 8,000,000. "The statistics of the draft have not yet been compiled, but it is easy to guess that between the ages of 26 and 31 the causes for exemption art more numerous. "Matrimony is not the most favor able institution for creation of an army; wives and home tics form an antagonistic interest to army work. The younger men have fewer of these tics. "There may be good teasons for discussing an increase in the age limit. I have no doubt Congressman Kahn has excellent reason for intro ducing his proposal." COUNTY EXHIBITS ARE FORWARDED TO PHOENIX (From Thursday's Daily.) A carload of exhibits from various parts of Yavapai county, to be shown at the coming State fair at Phoenix, left this city last night, after a whole day had been spent in loading the articles in the big car which had been furnished free by the Santa Fe Rail road Company. In the shipment were 35 boxes of fruit, ten bales of hay, 30 crates of vegetables, 106 sacks of minerals and ore, crates of pictures, much decorat ing material and many other miscel laneous displays. The county's agricultural and horti cultural display at the fair will be in charge of John I'.iaiicoui, while Miss Grace M. Sparkcs, secretary of the chamber of commerce, will have per- onal supervision over the mineral ctf- hibits. The displays which were for warded yesterday are said to be among the finest ever sent from this countv to the State fair, as great strides have been made in the way of agricultural and horticultural produc tion in the county since the last ses sion of the Phoenix fair. The mining exhibit is also said to be perhaps the best ever sent from this county, and the exhibits of former years were no small things, either. USE HAY BOXES TO SAVE COAL SUPPLY THE HAGUE, Xov. 7. Holland ers are using "hay boxes" or home made Tireless cookers, to save the diminishing supply of coal. These articles arc ordinary wooden boxes thickly lined with hay but in some caes a heavy padding of uewspapei is used for packing. In many towns tfie bakers arc cou- centrating in a, few central establish ments. Public kitchens seem likely to become a general institution in the coming Winter, not only among the poor, but among the more well-to-do. A coal rationing system has been in force in Holland for some time, the amount apportioned to each user be ing changed as the supply increases or diminishes. Further economy in coal consumption is inevitable. Railroad traffic is again to be cut down. The closing of factories for lack of fuel is increasing and public lighting has been reduced. The use of gas and electric light is to be rationed through out Holland during the Winter months. The production of the country's own coal mines is only a fifth of the normal consumption. The unrestrict ed submarine war, coupled with con ditions imposed by the British gov ernment, almost entirely stopped the supply of coal usually imported from the United Kingdom. Germany some time since cut down its coal deliveries to the Xcthcrlands to 330,000 tons a month. The Germans offered to guar antee a certain fixed coal supply again but intimated that if Holland wanted more it should send Dutch labor to the German mines to raise it. But it was publicly declared by the govern ment that this was impracticable. Fear of complications with the En tente Powers would alone probably suffice to keep Holland from adopting Lthis plan. BREAD INDUSTRY SOON UNDER U. S. CONTROL WASHIXGTOX, Xov. 8. A nat tcmpt to reduce bread prices will be the next move of the food administra tion in assuming control of the prin cipal food commodities. At the re quest of Administrator Hoover, Presi dent Wilson will issue within a few days an order directing that every baker in the country be required to do business under Federal license. Retaliations governing the baking in- executive order is issued, mey win provide a standard sized loaf of prob ably two sizes and standardization of the bread content. A bread formula has been selected and bakers will be permitted to use no other. The new war bread will contain a" reduced amount of fats, as both the lard and milk content will be cut down considerably. It probably will be pro duced in 20-ouncc and 10-ouncc loaves. j;0 ,,r;cc w;jj be fixed outright, but the regulations will prescribe tliat only reasonable prices may be charg ed. Consumer's committees have re ported to the administration that in most places loaves of this size can be sold at ten and five cents respectively. It is believed likely that before many months, bakers may be required to add a certain amount of corn flour in.baking bread. Dietetic experts now arc working out formulas containing wheat flour substitutes. MANY PROFITING BY NEW MINING REGULATION By Associated Press. A great many mine owners and prospectors, have already taken ad vantage of the Federal law, recently enacted, which exempts all mining property from annual assessment work during the years 1917 and 1918, and according to County Rccordct M'cSwiggiu, a great many of the re quired notices of intention have al ready been filed in his office, and the indications arc that more than 2,000 of the notices will be on file by the first of the coining year. The notices must be on file by the 31st day of December next, and arc merely the expression of the intention of the owner of the claims to continue holding them without doing the usual work. The affidavits do not, how ever, exempt a locator from doing the original location work, this to be per formed as usual within a period of 90 days from the time the location no tices are filed. The exemption from assessment work was the result of an agitation started in congress some months ago, it having been represented to that ( bodv that on account of being drafted into the army, many prospectors and mining men would be unable to ar range for work to be done on their ground, and that in fairness to the men who were serving their country :.. ti, ..r.t- iim ,iom1 work should be wiived COLORED BOYS IN CAMP FUNSTON ARE HAPPY (From Thursday's Daily.) Charles C. McCIendon, one of the well known Prcscotl colored boys, who was a member of the special con tingent which left this city last week for Cami) Funston. writes back to the home folks to say that the lads in the J party are feeling pretty good over their lot, as all of them have been made sergeants or corporals. Mr. MrClcndou's letter says, in part: ' "We arc all well and feeling fine at the present time. We have a nice place to stay apd get plenty of good things to cat.

I MEET TUESDAY 27 SUPERIOR COURT ACTING ON REQUEST OF COUN TY ATTORNEY AND SHERIFF SUMMONS THE INQUISITORIAL BODY. (From Friday's Dailv Orders were issued out of the Su perior court yesterday afternoon, fol lowing a written request filed by County Attorney F. L. Haworth and Sheriff J. F. Young, calling for a ses sion of the grand jury, the body to convene in this city on the morning of Tuesday, Xoveinbcr 27th. The clerk of the court was instructed to draw the jury on Xovcmbcr 12th. While the court officials refuse to disclose the reason, if any exists, for the summoning of the grand jury, it is generally believed that the session is desired for the purpose of investi gating the gambling which is report ed to be going on in various parts of the county. While the recent crusade against the alleged participants in this forbidden form of amusement is generally supposed to have put a stop to a large part of the gaming, it ap pears that there urc indications that many .other gac.es arc being operated which divers officials have apparently failed to put a crimp in, and the ef forts of the jury are desirable at this time in an attempt to eliminate the activities of the devotees of the god of chance. Yavapai county has not been blessed with a session of the grand jury since 1913. The present session was called at the instance of Sheriff Young and County Attorney Haworth, who inti mated to the court that there were a number of odds and ends which a jury might aid materially in cleaning up. No Notice of Trial. Counsel representing the Arizona Copper Queen Mining Company yes terday petitioned the court, asking for a suspension of the judgment which had been rendered against the com pany in favor of Horace E. Mann, the plaintiff having been awarded the sum of $1,000 for personal injuries. Ac cording to the statement of the de fendant's attorney, the company did not get a formal notification of tlu fact that a suit had been started against it and hence did not appear in court to contest the case at the time it was tried by a jury. In view of this fact, the company believes that the judgment should be suspended. The matter was taken under advisement, and a decision will bc rendered on December 1st. Declared Insane. Louis Matlyjak, a resident of the Jerome district, was yesterday de clared to be of unsound mind by a lunacy commission composed of Drs. Looncy and Judge. The man was or dered to the State insane asylum, and was taken there yesterday by Sheriff Joe Young. Mrs. Rcish, who was found to be insane several days ago. was also taken to the Phoenix insti tution yesterday. Welsh Still In Custody. Mat Welsh, now held in jail on a charge of gambling, appeared in court yesterday by his attorney and asked that he be released from custody, having secured the signatures of Henry Brinkmcycr and George RufT ncr to his bond. Welsh had been at liberty under a bond of $300, but his bondsmen surrendered him and col lected the cash which they had had up for his appearance. When the matter came up again yesterday, the court decided that it would bear fur ther investigation, and continued the case indefinitely. MILL IN ACTION (From Friday's Daily.) Arrivals yesterday from Hooper re ported the mill near that place of M. Roland as running day and night on ore from his Little Hoy mine. It vias rcponcu uic recovery was rumuiiK high, the values being gold. Roland luas auc tiircc runs (luring mc aum incr, developing the ore and running the mill without help. He now has a force of three miners employed, and the cleanup from present indications will reach to over $3,500 from a batch of less than 100 tons. Only the first class ore is being treated for the present, all free milling. USE WINDOW BOXES FOR RAISING FOOD SAX FRAXCISCO. Xov. 8. Food conservationists here are preparing to conserve with a vengeance. Certain residents believe that win dow boxes can produce something be side flowers, and in places where there arc no backyards these boxes can be "put out" in potatoes, carrots, beets and other vegetables. "There is no reason why every oo cupant of an apartment or other habi tation where there is no back yards should not do his or her bit toward helping along the food saving cam paign," these conservationists state. Special window boxes, bigger and deeper than the average, and capable of producint: a good supply of vege tables, art chcduled to make their appearance soon. GRAND NOVEMBER JURY SESSION OTPER BASIN IS NOT A CAUSE TO HAVE FIRST FOR ALARM ; ILL PLANT OFFICERS WHO CALLED SESSION OF INVESTI GATORS SAY THEY HAD NOBODY IN MIND; JUST A MATTER OF FORM. (From Saturday's Daily.) A county official who was dircctly connccted with the matter of calling the grand jury which is to convene on Xoveinbcr 27th, was yestcrday qucstioncd as to the significance of the calling of the body, and asked if any particular happening or circum stances occurring lately had made it advisable to have the inquisitorial body gather. In reply to the question, the official replied as follows: "In calling for the session of the grand jury, wc have had in mind no particular chain of circumstances which made it necessary for the jury to convene, but wc merely feci that inasmuch as the county has had no grand jury for more than four years, the presence of such a body may be instrumental in giving a number of citizens a chance to come in and tell their troubles, and cite cases of law- violation if they can do so. Wc un derstand that many persons are con tinually making complaints to the peace officers regarding some alleged lawlessness, and whep the complain ing parties arc asked by the officials to swear out a complaint against the law breakers, the kickers refuse to do so, and wc believe that they can now have their inning by telling their trou bles to the jury. "It was the original plan of the laws in the Western States to have the grand juries the sole instrument through which charges could be made against an alleged law breaker, and in the early days, before the practice of filing informations came into vogue an offender sometimes had to stay in jail for six months or a year before a session of the jury was held which could cither free him or bring an in dictment against him. As the jury could not be in session all the time, and a great injustice was sometimes worked on persons who were not guilty of the crimes with which they had been charged, the plan of having the county attorney file informations against the offenders was originated, and the usefulness of the grand jury gradually lessened. However, the Arizona laws provide that a jury can be called at least once a year whether there appears to be any need for its services or not. The policy of the county ajtorhcys hereabouts of late years has apparently been against railing for sessions of the jury, and the body has not been called sinci the early part of 1913. "While in all probability there arc a number of flagrant cases of law-brcak-mg, particularly among the whiskey sellers, which will receive the atten tion of the jury, wc had no specific case or cases in mind at the time the call was issued. There is no doubt but that thecall for the jury will serve to temporarily check the activities of i number of the gamblers and boot leggers, because such persons always rightly fear the consequences of a brush with this body, and the calling of the jury will be worth while if it only causes a few of these law-breakers to suspend business for only a ihort time." SIDNEY CRAIG IS NOW STATIONED IN ENGLAND (From Saturday's Daily.) The Journal-Miner is in receipt of i letter written by Sidney X. Craig, now stationed at Reading, England, the young man being a member of the 31st Aero Squadron of the Tech nical Training School of the Ameri can Expeditionary Forces. In part, Mr. Craig says: "I wish to thank you for your kind ness in sending mc the copies of the Journal-Miner, and to let you know how much I appreciated getting the news from home again.

GARFORD SYNDICATE DE CIDES TO EQUIP COP PER HILL WITH RE DUCTION WORKS IN IM MEDIATE FUTURE. (From Friday's Daily.) The Garford syndicate is to install on its Copper Hill mines in Copper Basin a reduction plant, and at pres ent a force is employed in dismant ling a mill on Cherry creek, purchased a short time ago. This action results from the large ore tonnage developed and is also for the purpose of reducing the cost of transportation, the raw product now being shipped to Wickcnburg, wher& it is reduced into a concentrate yield. It is reported that the mill is to be equipped with flotation, and after the product is shipped to the East will be submitted to a special process by which recoveries in a separate state will be given the molybdenum, cop per and gold contents. A new hoisting plant also is to be installed immediately, while several buildings at the camp arc ncaring completion, all of which arc to be steam heated. CATTLE MARKET Special Correspondent!.
