PAGE THREE CAM FIGHT WAS OF L FORMER STATE ENGINEER TOM MADDOCK GIVES IN TERVIEW SHOWING DE TAILS OF LONG GAUNT LET THROUGH WHICH REPUBLICAN GUBERNA TORIAL CANDIDATE HAD TO PASS IN HIS EFFORT TO ACQUIRE THE HON ORS WHICH WERE HIS. PHOEXIX, Dec 26. "Even as Republican, I never was proud of the political decision rendered in the HUycs-Tildcn case, although it was rendered shortly after emerging from the bitterness of the Civil war," said Thos. Maddock, who made the fight for Governor Campbell in reviewing- the political obstacles placed in his path in the battle through the court. "The necessity for arbitration in these war times is obvious, but we can understand the distaste of men to empower individuals of another country to decide the destinies cl their own, when it is difficult, within our own country, to secure other than pob'tical decisions. "I am extremely sorry that the de cision in the Arizona Supreme court unanimously replacing Geoige V. P. Hunt as governor, reverses that of Judge Stanford, whose sense of jus tice was superior to his party pre judice. An Awful Gauntlet "What an awful gauntlet Tom Campbell has had to run: Registra tion officers refusing to register Re publicans and conservative Dcmov crats and, although registering them, in some cases omitting their names from the poll list, as in Cochise county. "The registration of frauds; aftci the close of the great register, in some cases up to and including elec tion day, as in Xavajo county. "The appointment of numerous election boards, all of the political faith opposed to Campbell, by count b'-ards of supervisors, who allowed unregistered voters to cast their bal lots on blank A's and in other illegal ways, as in Yuma county. Politicians in Office. "The refusal of the democratic Secretary of State to issue a certilt-. cate of election on the returns there of, although he allowed this certifi cate to be made a basis of barter by the counsel for Hunt, in exchange for the right to resume legal procccd ngs in the Superior court. Also, his neglect to place the name of the pro. hibition candidate for governor on the ballot, except in strong Campbell counties where it would provide ad ditional competition. "The opposition of the attorney, general, however impotent and in temperate, as to the consolidation of contents brought in different coun ties, into one case in Maricopa coun ty. A Hostile Legislature. "The action of the legislature, ir refusing to confirm the governor's appointments, absolutely essential foi his proper supervision of state in stitutional matters, until the creation cl the Commission of State Institu tions, six months after his inaugura tion. "Innumerable paltry political acts- of Democratic officials, tending to cripple or nullify the efficiency of the executive, as the continual assertion that his tenure o fiffice was insccurts and the repeated and confident pre diction of his early removal. Played Politics Before. "I have not yet had time to read the decision carefully. Knowing th& case very well, the action of the Su preme court would have been a se vere shock, had I not remembered the decision in that remarkable case. which ignored the constitutional pro vision, providing for a state election in 1912 and which extended the terms of the faithful two full years; and, had I not heard the many rumors cir culating during the past six weeks, as to the conclusion today reached. The Greatest Outrage. "It may be the law that Campbell should pay the costs of both sides in defending his election as governor, rendered by the legally constituted election machinery of Arizona; hav ing his salary held up and then given to one who rendered no service, but, to the laymen, this appears an outrage and practically means that no man in Arizona dare start to de fend himself against a contest brought by a member of an intrenched politi cal party. The Higher Court 11 lift) Ut.t.11 JAIU llialL UICIC 19 X i higher law than the constitution; al so, that there is a higher court with- in our state, than its Supreme court the will of the people. - i "Correction in our present election I law is obviously necessary. The making of our judiciary nonpartisan, both at the time of nomination and election. Under the present law an aspiring candidate must face the most dangerous hour in his career. An Industrial Menace. ; "I am sorry for this decision, as a, citizen of Arizona, on account of the industrial menace it may hold. "Because of an interest in State highway work, in particular, 1 am glad that the decision has finally been given. We arc now free from the uncertainty which has permeated every department of the State to the great depreciation of the morale. A Partisan Government. "As a Republican and a believer in a strong representative central gov j crnment, I am highly pleased over the actions of those now in the con tiol of the Democratic party of Ari zona, fronl the date of the last state election to the present time; for 1 am of the opinion that the avcragN citizen is not a violent partisan and that he will resent oppression and in t rfcrence, such as has been witness ed during this case." WIFE WANTS TO PENSION HER HUSBAND (From Thursday's Daily) That -Mrs. Elizabeth Jones of Hum boldt is willing and ready to pay to William Jones, her husband, the sum of $40 a month if he will only desist in his efforts to fightcn trade awaj from the former's boarding house in that city, and let her have a divorce, is made plain from reading the di vorce complaint which the lady filed in the Superior court here ycstcrda afternoon. The complaint sets forth the fact that Mr. and Mrs. Jones were married in Pennsylvania in 1881, and that for many years their domestic life was of about the average. Several years ago, however, the complainant alleges, Mr. Jones ceased to provide for his wife and family and the wifa was compelled to open a boarding house in Humboldt in order to sup port herself. Friend huslJand evi dently resented the actions of his wife, for, according to the complaint, he- has been making continual efforts to scare away all of the patronage which the house has attracted, and in pthcr ways making something ot a pest out of himself, as far as Mrs. Jones was concerned. The complaint definitely sets out the willingness of the plaintiff to pay the stipulated sum of 40 as a sort of a pension to Col. Husband if he will onlv stay away from the board ing house and also allow his wife l cct the decree which she seeks. The pension act is to hold .good for period of two years from the date ol the issuance of the divorce decree. iirs. Jones states that she owns property in this county valued at 512,000, and asks that the court ad judge her sole owner of the same. Serious Charge. Grace McDowdclI, married only a few months ago to W. H. McDowdclI yesterday filed suit asking for a di vorcc, alleging that her husband had been attempting to cause her to lead a life of shame in order that the fam ily might be supplied with money The complaint states that the couple. was married on April 17, 1917, and that they separated on December 9, after the husband had become insis tcr.t tha- she enter one of the local re ,oi is and make money in a mannei somewhat easier than washing and ironing for it When Mrs. McDowdell refused to consider the ghastly suy. gestion made by her husband, the latter is alleged to have administered a beating to his wife and it was fol lowing this ruction that the plaintifl quit n;m cold. Wants Damages. Wyatt Smith was yesterday made the dcicudant in a suit filed by J. W. Rollins, the latter asking a judgment in the sum of $500 and costs againsi Smith. The latter is alleged to have sold - Ford and a lot of auto acces sories belonging to the plaintiff and pocketing the money. It seems that the car had been turned over to Smith by ihc owner. Smith to operate tin machine as a jitney. The defendant is said to have disposed of the car on September 23, 1917. REGISTRANTS RE ASKED ABOUT CITIZENSHIP (From Thursday's Daily.) While as a general thing the work cf filling out the questionnaires is progressing satisfactorily, the local exemption board reports that thert is one thing in connection with the matter that is causing much confu sion, not to say grief, and that is the fact that most of the registrants are failing to fill out Section 7, Page -8, the part relating to their citizenship. The first question in this scries asks whether the draftee is a citizen, and states that in case the question is answered in the affirmative, tht questions which follow relating to the subject do not have to be answered. However, since printing the blanks, the war department has decided that it should know all about a man whether he is a citizen or not, and has issued instructions to the effect that the nine other questions relating to the citizenship must be answered, and while some of the members of the advisory boards have been thus instructed, it seems that the ruling has not yet become generally knowii, and many of the blanks arc sent with out the desired information. By this evening, the questionnaires numbered from 1 to 2156 will Jiave been placed in the mails by the Yava pai board . CHALLENGE TO MEET HIM AT THE POLLS DECLINED HUNT SAYS "NOT ME" WHEN CAMPBELL O F FERS TO SETTLE ISSUE AT THE ELECTION NEXT "NOVEMBER. (Special to the Journal-Miner) PHOEXIX, Ariz., Dec. 26. When Tom Campbell turned over the gov ernor's office at 10 o'clock Tuesday morning, he challenged George W. P. Hunt to meet him at the polls next fall. Hunt's only reply was "Not Me.n The position taken by Hunt con firms the reported agreement in Democratic circles that Hunt is not to run again. It is said that he has let it be known for some time that if defeated, he would not make the race, but if Campbell was seated, he would go into the fight. Hunt has now formally refused to put the decision of the Supreme court seating, him as governor up to Un people of the state. Campbell Refuses "Gift". On taking his office. Hunt called upon Rudolph Kuchlcr, member ol the State Tax Commission, who suc ceeded Campbell in that office, to tender his resignation and then of fered the place to Campbell as a Christmas present. Campbell politely refused, saying that he was not look ing for a job, that Hunt was offering him something that he. Hunt, did not have and that he, Campbell, did not want. In turning over the office to his successor, Tom Campbell was very gracious. He was personally pres ent, although Hunt had left his secre tary to do the job when he was ousted by mandamus proceedings of the Supreme court. Campbell greeted Hunt, saying that he wanted no unpleasantness: that Hunt had won in the Supreme. court and that his one hope was that they could test out the Supreme court's decision before the people of the State. "Not Me," Says Hunt It was then that Hunt said; "Xot inc". Thomas Maddock, manager of Tom Campbell's campaign gave out the following statement: "I am almost converted' to both the recall of the judiciary and the re call of judicial decisions. If Hunt wanted to give Campbell a Christmas present, why did he not ask- soml good Democrat to resign instead of the lone Republican candidate. I do not believe Hunt will dare to accept Tom Campbell's challenge to submit the, issue to the people of the State". To Reside in Phoenix. Governor Campbell announces his intention of remaining a resident ol Phoenix. Republican leaders say that he will undoubtedly be the party standard bearer next fall, and Mr. Campbell himself says that he will ppcal his case to the people of Ari zona. Governor Campbell's last official a-, t was to hand tlic following state ment to the press: "In this time of turmoil, strife and sacrifice, let us forget partisan rela tions, industrial differences and class distinctions. Let us support those who have been chosen to carry tht heavy responsibilities of leadership. "Our combined efforts as a whole people, undivided, arc necessary tt make possible the ideals of our gov ernment recognition of represented i ulhority and enjoyment of all right lul liberties in the State, the nation and the world. Only by so doing car. we carry out the spirit of this day and honestly proclaim His words, 'peace on Earth, Good Will to Men'." TIME CHERISHES FOND MEMORIES OF LONG AGO (From Thursday's Daily) Seldom docs -it fall to the lot ol man to face and endure such a pathe tic scene as was so tenderly shown yesterday when Rev. Joel F. Hcdg pcth paid a beautiful tribttc to the memory of the dead, during the fun cral of Mrs. Agnes A. Lee in this city. The days of thc shadowy past were recalled, and the tecling manner m which this officiating minister dre the curtain back from life's early days, was a noble picture for the liv ing to cherish in fond recollection ol her who was cold in death. The scene was dramatic, and yet true. Rev. Hcdgpcth called back the days in 1875, when his father and mother. Rev. J. L. Hcdgpcth and wife, were journeying from Walnut creek to Prcscott, and reaching th'c American Ranch were overtaken by their team of horses refusing to go on, both having been poisoned by loco weed. Mrs. Hcdgpcth also was ill, and when her pitiable condition was made known to Mrs. Lee, tin. latter, with a sweet smile on her lips and a soul filled with benevolence, kindly opened the door to her homt,j and bid man and wife welcome. It was probably due to this Christian j i : : deed the life of' Mrs; HedBpctlr was.: . r-i-mt rP 1 1 1 clrnnnor miiC(e rnmim1 j cd for over two weeks, but as time J wore away, the heart still cherished! j its fond memory of the past, and the son who was born two years late, I or in 1877, stood at the portal of death yesterday to rekindle the past : in remembrances which arc familiar ly and devoutcly stored away. Mr. Hfcdgpcth time and again told the story of the long ago to her son, and as Rev. Hcdgpcth faced one of the saddest duties in his religious cause-, his eulogy to the friend of his tnothei was one of the most emotional, purest and deserved the living could bestow to the dead. The coincidence was strange and sad, and in years which passed, death only cemented the long chain of friendship and good will borne for her, who was closing life's long journey. The funeral of Mrs. Lee was well attended and as she is the last of the pioneer women in Ari zona to be called away, the curtain dropping again revives cherished memory. Mrs. Lee was laid away in Mourn tain View cemetery by the side of hct husband, burial being given by W. M. Poulson & Co. All pall bearers were pioneers also, comprising E. Y. Wells, J. I. Gardner. John Duke, Mor ris Ashcr, II. II. Weaver and J. C Stephens. J WAVE OF ACTIVITY IN THE OIL FIELD nimrvrv ' . t- 26,- LA vices received here from Prcscott arciinK camps, to the effect that a great wave of ac - tivity is now prevailing in Chino Val - ley, the new oil fields of Arizona, According to a wire received today, the business transacted in the County Recorder's office at Prcscott broke all records as a result of the numerous oil land transfers flic advices stafe that more tltaV 50 companies have" .been organized In the district and that, a great many ofj thrill will he in oneratinf sliane verv 1 shortlv i The stimulated interest shown in! the activity of the Arizona Oil & Re - ' n ... ... lining Company, which now has its. rnr on the . nroner v. has nroven an impetus to many of the other com panies, who arc becoming rapidly nn.l -.Mil ennn 1... . tion to drill for oil.

Oil geologists who have care fully examined the district arc united in their opinion that the Chino Val ley fields are destined to become a ,T -1 , V .. uig 011 producing section. it is an established tact, well known 10 uiosc who arc laminar w ui uic imno vauey, mat on 01 a nign grav-,,.. ity -paraffin base was found in thc dis- covcry wen ciriucu uy j. xicmci, the pioneer of the district, who is head of thc Chino Valley Oil Co., the first company who hailed the Chino Valley as an oil section. Thc records of this well show that at a depth of 1900 feet the drill en tered oil bearing sand, which it pene trated at a dfstance of 110 feet. Water had been encountered at a shallow depth, but was cased o(T, so the dril ling was continued through this col umn of water until thc oil bearing sand was penetrated. Improper hand ling of thc water question is said to be responsible for the failure to bring in an oil producing well for thc Chino Valley at that time. Because .of thc improper handling of this water, the quantity of oil that the first well was capable of produc ing could not be determined, but the fact that the gas pressure from below forced the oil through a column of water 1900 feet to thc surface, gives an idea of the gas pressure that was present at that depth. In addition, while the oil sand penetrated in thc Chino Valley was 110 feet in thick ness, it is a well-known fact that the wells in Oklahoma arc producing from 500 to 1000 barrels per day in less than 50 feet of oil sand.

TRENCHES AND IN THE TRAINING CAMPS; NEARLY 2000 MEN VOL- - UNTEERED FOR DUTY. (From Friday's Daily.) A total of 5,311 Arizona boys arc serving Uncle Sam in some militar; capacity, according to figures ac curately and carefully compiled by the welfare division of the Arizonu council of defense. Of this number, approximately 35 per cent, or 1,839 men, have volunteered their services. These figures show that approxi mately 2 per cent of the total popula tion of the State is in the military service of the country. More than j that, they show that Arizona has done more than its share in support of tht. war for world democracy. Estimating the total population of the state at 250,000, Arizona has sup plied almost 254 per cent of its in habitants for Uncle Sam's army and navy. If other states had contribut ed equally as large a per cent of men. the total fighting forces of the United States would now be more than 2, 000,000 men, but the actual figures fall considerably below that mark.

Some arc paying $5 monthly and a few arc paying as high as $15 month iy- In countless instances, almost, men arc assigning practically their cntirt monthly pay to various purposes. For instance, one man is receiving $30 month compensation; $10 of this amount is assigned to apply on his Liberty Loan bonds; and $18 more is assigned to dependents, leaving thc man a total of $2 for spending money each month. COULD GO OVER THE TOP WITH GREAT EASE (Fiom Friday's Daily. Many compliments have been ten dered recruits enlisted from Prcscott, in army, navy, engineering, aviation and other arms of the fighting serv ice, but now the climax is reached in this city being accorded the distinction of having in the artillery ranks the tallest man enlisted to date in thc new national army. His name is Henry G. Fredericks, and he went from Norwalk, Cal., to Los Angeles to be examined and to serve his country, and crept into tht service by thc skin of his teeth. He stripped for physical examination, their fitness as city mail carriers. Al and his hcighth of 7S'2 inches nearly ready hundreds of them arc employed lost him a job. owing to having i. as rural mail carriers, but not carry- scant half of one inch to spare to be rejected. Mr. Fredericks is a native of this city, of the age of 25 years, the son of Eric Fredericks, who will be remembered as formerly employed by thc Bashford-Brumistcr Co. Press accounts of this exceptional incident in military requirements, dwell at considerable length in at hiding to such an unusual physical qualification, to face Fredericks, and one ncwsfiapr-ays: "This young man of patriotic for vor and splendid physique is the tall est man in the artillery service, and is. -attached to the California Coas. unit. Further, he will go to the head of the column, and if there is ant fighting to be done he will be the very first man to step out of thci trenches and go over the top without' any physical exertion. It's all in tncl army regulations. (Incidentally, Mr. Fredericks stands, higher, speaking. literally, than any other man enlistctit to date by Lieut. J. G. Lynch, medical cxamining officer of the regular army and if this recruit had reached a hcighth of 76 inches, back to civil life would he go. He had a scant half-inch to spare." BOSTON WORKED UP OVER USE OF A WORD ' (Prom Friday's Daily.) Wm. M. Warren, one of thc best known newspapermen in the United States has never forgotten his visit to Prcscott in 1916, when he witnessed the Frontier Days' sports. At that time, he was shown considerable o. thc country by A. L. Smith and fam ily, F. I- Haworth, Doc Pardee and Secretary Grace M. Sparkcs. Since that time, he has always, been inter ested in thc development of Prcscott and never misses an opporunity to" t'o a little publicity now and then for the Mile High City. He has been on the mailing list of the Chamber ol Commerce for copies of thc daily and weekly papers and the Yavapai maga zii.e. In an issue of the Boston Herald, of Dec. 8th, Mr. Warren made an editorial comment regarding Hoose gow, stating that the Journal-Miner of Prcscott, Arizona, in its issue of Nov. 18th, printed the heading: ".Mili tants Tire of Life in thc Hooscgow Will someone rise to explain thc ori gin of the unfamiliar word unfamil iar at least in the 'Classic prcsink of Boston'." As this question brought out an interesting answer, Mr. Warren has sent a copy of the Boston Herald, containing thc query and thc answer under a caption, entitled, "As the World Wags." "In your issue ol Dec. 8th, you ask for an explanation of the origin of 'Hooscgow'. After living sometime in Spanish-spcakinf. countries most Americans add a few Spanish words to their routine Eng lish vocabulary; this, to a lesser ex tent, is also true in the Southwestern part of the United States, due to con tact with Mexicans, and everyone out that way knows the meaning of 'rodeo', 'hombrc" and 'amigo. Othci words have been corrupted by the cowboys, c. g.', 'chaparrcras. tochap.-, 'Mcstcno', to mustang, 'caballcrango to horse-wrangler, etc Hooscgow furnishes an analogy, as the Spanish word -'juzgado", defined as a tribunal or court of justice. Is pronounced without the 'd' by the average Mexi can (whose cacocpy is the principal part of his Spanish) to give a com bination described perfectly by thc word you ask about.

YAVAPAI CLUB SCENE OF GAY CELEBRATION (From Thursday's Uaily.I Thc members of the Yavapai club staged one of thc biggest stunts on their calendar for the year on Christ mas Day, the occasion for the gath ering being the annual limerick luncheon given at noon. The lunch con was strictly a stag affair, thert being about 60 of the members pres ent to enjoy thc fun and the turkc dinner which was served.

HUNT APPOINTS YOUNG PRESCOTT AT- TORNEY TO FILL UNEX PIRED TERM OF F. O. SMITH, RESIGNED. (From Friday's Daily.) John J. Sweeney of Prcscott was yesterday morning appointed judge of thc Yavapai Superior court by Governor Hunt, the appointment hav ing been made to fill the vacancy caused by the recent resignation ot Judge Frank O. Smith. Mr. Sweeney will in all probability be given tht oath of office on Saturday and. will take charge of his new duties at once, although there will be no further ses sions of the Superior court until about January 2d, at which time thc call of the calendar will be made and such other business as is necessary will be taken up. The oath will bt given by another Superior judge, who will be designated probably today. Mr. Sweeney, who is 31 years ol age, v;ill be, with the exception o? Judge Ellis of Kingman, the young est judge in the State to occupy the superior bench. He. was admitted tu thc bar something over two years ago, and has been a resident of Prcscott for the past 19 years, and is pretty well known throughout the county. He was elected to the second legisla ture in 1914 in the capacity or rcpre cntativc, and served as legal advisor of the session of 1917. He is at pre ent acting as city attorney, having been appointed several months ago to succeed Attorney Mitchell, now b. the army. Thc honors which have been thrust upon young Mr. Sweeney have come about, no doubt, by reason of thc fact -that for several years he has. been one of the staunchest of thc Hunt supporters in Yavapai county, and has for a long time been in close contact with Homer Woods, anothei of the premier Hunt boosters of this part of the S'ae. During both ot Governor Hunt's campaigns, Mr. Sweeney was active in behalf of thc democrat and stumped the county It. his interests. Thc notification of Mr. Sweeney's appointment came yesterday morning in the' iorm of a telephone message from' the Governor. The latter in formed Swcenev that he had decided to confer the judicial position upor. him, the matter having been discuss ed during the day bv Hunt and Homer Woods. Mr. Woods is now at Phoenix and has taken over hi new position as member of thc com mittee on State institutions.

ELECTRIC POWER HAS ENTERED BRADSHAWS (From Friday's Daily.) Construction of thc new electrical transmission line by the Arizona Power Company, into the Bradshaws, has been at last finished, was the important information given out yes terday by arrivals from that country. The first plant connected up was that of thc Bradshaw Development o., at uown mng, anu in u ic,v uiijra its larce mill begins to grind. This company is largely interested in that belt, and is operating thc Wild flowcr, to which camp thc clectrn. service is now being extended. Ore reduction is mainly by flotation and thc mill has a capacity of over 150 tons daily. It has been thoroughly tried out and returns have provcu satisfactory. Thc electric service is also being extended south, and thc line is enter ing the old Tiger camp, three miles south of Crown King. The Iattet holding also is to become active at once, thc Bradshaw Development Co. being behind its revival. It is also stated that the main power line is to be extended four miles farther south of thc Tiger to tap the Harrington country, as well will a score of individual properties be permitted to go ahead under ad vantageous power conditions. This utility means a complete revolution in mining in the Bradshaws, and is believed to be the forerunner of fai more extensive operation that hereto fore known. Fuel has been a great drawback to this country, owing to snow blockades and other climatic troubles, but which is now relieved of any further burdens and disturb ances. The novelty as well as con venience of mine lighting by electric ity is another forward move, and the coming of thc juice marks another advance for one of the oldest and strongest mining divisions of thc Southwest.
