pa;ge THREE YOUNG OFFICER IN IMPORTANT SERVICE LIEUT. E. L. TOMLINSON, RECENTLY COMMISSION ED IN ARMY, COMMANDS MACHINE GUN COMPANY AT CAMP LEWIS. (From TTHiriay's Daily.) Ed. I- Tomlinson, who successful ly passed the examination at the of ficers training school at the Presidio, San Francisco, is on duty at Camp Lewis, Washington, as" a lieutenant, and has been assigned to important duty, commanding a machine gun company, with a full battery. He has received orders to proceed to Fort Sill. Oklahoma, for snccial instruc tion, and it is stated that he will later be given a commission as captain. Lieutenant Tomlinson entered the service from Nevada, but retained Prescott as his home in the applica tion lie made. In Nevada he left a lucrative Dosition as superintendent of a mining company, and spurned all overtures made to withdraw his ap- nlication. even at an advance in salary. He made Prescott his home for many years, following mine en gineering, and is the eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Tomiinson, who are residing at the Venezia camp in Crook canyon. AUSTRIAN ATROCITIES TIPOM SERVIANS ALMOST BEYOND HUMAN BELIEF LONDON, Jan. 9. Compelled to illtr their own graves, drowned, bum ed alive, hanged, or shot down with machine cuns. the Serbians of Her zegovina, Bosnia, Istria and Dalmatia were 5 he victims of Austro-Hungar- ian atrocities, surpassing the human imagination, recently declared Dr. Trcsic Pavieic, a Slav member of the Austro-Hungarian Chamber of Depu ties. Narratives of Serbians made prisoners in Austrian jails and fort-j resses were related in detail before the Austrian parliament by the Slav deputy. ' Acording to Dr. Pavieic, these out. rages were practiced upon the civilian population, old men, women and chil dren, when orders were given by General Potiorek, described as the autocrat of Bosnia, to remove all the Serbians from the frontier districts. The inhabitants of the village of Svice, young and old, were all led away and on arrival at Mount Rudo, were compelled to dig their own gra ves and to lie down each in his own, Many women, the deputy said, lay down;in their graves with children in their anus and the soldiers then shot them one after another, the living putting earth over the dead until their own turn came. The ordinary method of executing these civilians who should have been interned, said the Slav deputy, was to hancr them, but instead the whole Scrbo-Montcncgrin frontier has been transformed into a desert. Uighty two persons, he said, were hanged without trial at Zubac. 103 at Trebin- jo, 71 at Foca and 300 at Tuzla. He gave the names of victims ana tne ,ntc and localities of the outrages nf tlmsp who were not executed, he declared, the very young and the aged died of destitution. It was the vigor ous. competent, and courageous who were arrested, fasely accused, con .loinned. tortured and executed. The deputy was informed he said, that 5, 000" persons had been arrested in Dal matia, Istria and Carnoiola. Dr. Pavi eic was one of those arrested, herded with brigands, insulted by Hungarian soldiers and beaten with rifle butts. Many of his fellow prisoners lost their reason and he saw one hurl him self from a train under the wheels of another which was passing. Thous ands of Serbians, he declared, were taken for interment to Mostar, Her zegovina, to Ooboj, Bosnia and to Arad, Hungary. Upon these unfortunates their jail ers inflicted peculiar punishment ac cording to the narratives of two sur vivors related by Dr. Pavieic One of these jailers at Mostar was char acterized in the speech as a "feroci ous beast" who beat his prisoners with a hooked baton of iron which he called "Kromprinz." A priest named Tichy afterward died at Arad, Hun gary, as the result of the tortures this jailer inflicted. If those gathered at Mostar sur vived, they were transferred later to Arad where "thousands of living skeletons were congregated from Bos nia and Hcrzcgovian," said the de puty. Famished, naked, half-dead from the blows of rifles and bayonet thrusts they were driven to the case ments of the Arad fortress. In its subterranean corridors they died in masses from typhus. "As the davs become colder." said Dr. Pavieic, "they took clothing from the dead to clothe the naked, the number of deaths at Arad is estimat ed at between 3,000 and 4,000." At Doboj things were worse. Along with Serbian and Montenegrin pri soners came crowds of civilian old men, women and children driven from home and forced to travel in open cattle trucks. Hunger was found to i be the simplest and encapest means of sending these people to another world. Oftcn-.thc mother would be dead when her little child shook her to ask for bread. Trustworthy figure's show that more than 8,000 innocent victims met their death in these places." GREEN MONSTER WILL DEVELOP BKOUK-SriltCB, T F.ROME. Ian. 9. At a meeting of the Grctn Monster directors, held here this week, it was practically de cided to start development at the old Rrookslurc workincs. A dctinitc de cision will probably be reached at another meeting to be held here two weeks hence. When Gcorcc Brookslnrc owned part of the present Green Monster estate a shaft was sunk about 200 feet on a promising showing and splcnd"d indications were opened. That Shaft is now filled with water. A lnne tunnel was run to cut under the shaft about 250 feet from the bottom, but it was never completed. One year ago the Green Monster Pomnanv had tracks laid in the tun nel, and had all plans made to ex tend it under the shaft, but that plan laQ dronncd for lack of power. The tunnel will not only open one of the most promising ot the Urecn Monster showings, but it will provide This is the principal ad vantage to be gained by tunneling rather than sinking. President Ncill E. Bailey, W. S. Humbert. W. W. Lawhon and Dave he directors in at- tnnilniiri at the mcctintr. llailrv. Humbert and Morgan made an examination of the Green Mon ster while here. They found that the crosscut west from the Dorothy May shaft, on the 500-foot level, was not through the ledge to the footwall. If ore is not found on the footwall the shaft will be continued to greater depth. In the Gorge tunnel workings a drift has been run 90 feet through altered dioritc, well impregnated with chalcopyritc No average samples have been assayed, but individual samples run all the way from 1 to 10 per cent copper, lnis showing is now to be crosscut to determine its width and a winze may be sunk.

ILL-FATED REWA WELL KNOWN TO LOCAL MAN (From Friday's Daily.) In connection with thc report of thc torpedoing of the British hospital ship "Rcwa" by thc Germans, thc ac count of which appeared in thc Journal-Miner of yesterday morning, a very interesting local story has de veloped, Alfred E. Landman, Pres cott auto dealer, writing that his brother. Dr. Leo Landman, had charge of thc ill-fated steamer for a period of about two years, and that he was but recently transferred to a job on land. Mr. Landman's let ter of jestcrday is as follows: Editor Journal Miner: I sec in this morning's paper under the heading "Huns Indulging in Fa vorite Pastime" an account of the sinking of thc hospital ship, Rcwa. To show how far the effects of this war reach, I am enclosing a letter from my eldest brother, who for more than two years had charge of the Rcwa. Thc enclosed letter, written at thc time he took charge, shows that there were more than 800 pat ients aboard. From thc story in the Journal-Miner, I note thit at thc time jf the sinking there were for tunately but 55 persons on board. The Rcwa had never been anything but a hospital ship, and it was stationed most of the time near Malta, so thc sinking by the Germans must have J been deliberate in everyvay. A. E. LANDMAN The letter from Dr. Landman, is 'dated August 8, 1916, and is, in part as follows: " you will see by this letter head that I now have a new appoint ment, and so far I like the change very much. We arc a merry crowd of doctors, although at times we are very busy. We had more than 800 wounded men aboard a short time ago. Now we are empty, and are en joying life somewhat, playing cricket on deck as a pastime. 1 saw my chil dren a few days ago for the first time in more than a year. "Your brother, "LEO."

Hill, the well-known Pres cott Mtorney, died quite suddenly at about 5 o'clock yesterday evening on the train upon which he had started for Phoenix with the hopes of bene fiting his failing health. Neuritis was the cause of the sudden taking off of this popular business man. The train left this- city at about 4:30 in the af ternoon and when it had reached Iron Springs, Mr. Hill was seen to grad ually cease breathing, his'death hav ing been a most peaceful one. In company with his sister. Miss Molli.; Hill and Attorney Robert E. Morrison, Mr. Hill boarded the train here, and, for lack of a Pullman, he managed to make himself comfort able on two scats which had been turned so that they faced each other.

INCOME TAX MAN COMING TO HELP MAKE OUT RETURNS (From Yvednesday's Daily.) In a communication received by this paper. Collector of Internal Revenue, Louis T Carpenter, an nounces that a federal income tax of ficer will be sent into this county on January 21st and will be here until January 31, 1918. He will have his office in Prescott and will be here every day ready and willing to help persons subject to the income tax make out their returns without any cost to them for his services. Returns of income for the year 1917 must be made on forms provided for the purpose before March 1, 1918. Because a good many people don't understand the law and won't know how to make out their returns, the government is sending in this expert to do it for them. But the duty is on the taxpayer to make himself known WHILE ENROOT PHOENIX to the government. If he doesn't make return as required before March 1 hn mfiv lirv tn nnv n npnaltt- ranc. t J - - - - i j j o . ing from $20 to $1,000, pay a fine or go to jail. So if you don t want to take chances on going to jail, you better call on the income tax man. If you arc not sure about being sub ject to the tax, better ask him and make sure. Whether you see the in come tax man or not, you must make return if subject to tax. Of course, persons resident in other j counties may, if they want to, come and sec the income las man who will be at Prescott. The collector suggests that every body start figuring up now his in come and expenses so as to be ready with the figures when the expert ar rives. Expenses, however, don't mean family expenses, money used to pay off the principal of a debt, new ma chinery, building, or anything like that. They mean what yon spend in making your money interest, taxes paid, hired help, amount paid for goods sold, seed, stock bought for feeding, rent (except for your dwel ling), etc. Income includes about every dollar you got. BREAK THE DULL GLOOM OF LIFE AT KEARNY (From Wednesday's Daily.) Hanv who have returned from Camp Kearny during the past two weeks dwell on one matter of inter, est in that military center, and that is thc neglect of friends and relatives to write the soldier boys, which creates the impression that they have gone only to be forgotten A message from home is received j with that satisfaction and elation that) only thc absent one knows, and ondustry generally and tor Copper Ba the arrival daily of the mail the long: sin specifically. The new company line sees many an anxious one who is i has extensive mining and oil inter- eagerly anticipating news from some one at home. Observing, the disappointment ol several a short time ago as they turn ed their backs to return to quarters, said a recent arrival, thc scene was trying and on the other hand those who were remembered showed by the gleam in their eyes that the world seemed brighter and with a cheery smile told the news to the one who had been forgotten. Said an arrival from Kearny a few days ago: "Army life- has passed out of its novelty, and is now of thc dull monotony; a letter from a friend or a bit of tobacco evokes decided expres sions of pleasure and contentment I was there when Red Cross packages were freely distributed and it was re-markablt- to witness thc appreciation of thc Yavapai boys as each received thc silent message of good will from home. Neglect induces homesickness and a little bit of personal considera tion brushes away the gloom. Keep our boys in action with tidings from home. They dispel that feeling of anxiety and freshen up their dull life. Keep homesickness . away from Kearny, and do your bit cither by word or deed. The Yavapai boys arc making good, and you'll hear from them. But in thc meantime let them hear from you." PRESCOTT PAUPER WORTH $250,000 (From Wednesday's Daily.) Advices have been received in Prcs cott from Denver which will occasion very much surprise when it is learn ed ;lut John Knowlcs, who died in that city on December last as an im mate of the county hospital, friend less, alone and apparently penniless, was the owner of an estate valued at approximately 5250,000. This state of affairs was revealed after an investigation was made of his Denver holdings, in which a local real estate dealer gave out this informa tion, stating that he had busines dealings with thc deceased1, for many years, or during his absence from that city in Arizona. Knowlcs, it was learned yesterday, wor.c"l at placer mining on Willow crcetc, occupying one of thc old cab ins of Frank Spcncc, and he made ef forts to be admitted to thc county hospital here to be treated for rheu matism. He subsisted to a large ex tent from refuse of restaurants and appeared to be of the pitiablt class ol paupers. He was about 70 years of age. YAVAPAI COWBOYS WHEEL INTO LINE FOR THE RED CROSS (From Friday's Daily.) During thc past week several cow boys, who visited the city formally agreed at Dr. C. W. Pardee's stables in a preliminary meeting, that they were desirous of assistang any cause where the war figured, and yesterday thc Red Cross was decided upon. Thc plan is to hold a range tourna ment, one week from tomorrow, but the selection of a place is held up. If weather conditions are favorable Prescott will be chosen, if not Kirk- land V3lley. Many of thc range boys have friends in the army, and this will be their first opportunity in a collective way to assist them and thc good cause. A dance will close the day, and every cent outside of actual expenses is to be contributed. COMMITTED TO ASYLUM (From Friday's Daily.)

OPERATORS BASIN FIELD -. ,,,o WELL-KNOWN MINING SYNDICATE TAKES OVER THE ARIZONA PORT LAND, THIS WEEK AND OPERATIONS BEGIN. (From Friday's Daily) What is regarded as one of the most important mining movements in many years in this field, is the an nouncement made by those interested of the sale of the copper holdings o! thc Arizona Portland Company in Copper Basin, the operators succeed ing to this holding being the Inter national Syndicate of Mines and Smelters, a corporation holding a charter from thc State of Delaware. Thc representative in this big deal was L. P. Morgan, who is the con sulting engineer, and who also is to direct operations as general manager. Mr. Morgan is now in this city, and stated yesterday the formal transfer of the property was consummated this week, and initial exploration has started. Thc fact of the above large tnining company entering thc above field, to gether with Mr. Morgan deciding to i make this city his principal base of onerations. are matters of very much importance for the future of the in- ests throughout the nation, and ona of their principal holdings is that of the famously known La Bonito Oro of Mexico. Mr. Morgan, through whom this deal is due, is a geologist who enjoys world-wide prominence, his fields embracing Africa, South America and thc United States. His advent to Arizona is due to observa tions made several months ago in Copper Basin, where he quietly con ducted investigations, and arriving at absolute determinations, concluded to act in taking over the Portland. Negotiations had been progressing for some weeks and the climax came only a few days ago. In outlining plans for thc develop ment, Mr. Morgan stated yesterday depth will be the integral factor of this undertaking, and from which he is sanguine of results. "There is only one solution for successful mine op erations, and that is to give great depth," he said. Continuing, he stat ed that Copper Basin has an attrac tive inducement for this action to he extended, and his company is equip ped' to accomplish that purpose. Under this new arrangement the Portland has swung into activity al ready in a practical and energetic manner. Two shifts arc at work, ma chinery is en route to increase the power facilities, and a complete elec tric system is to be installed forth with. New camp buildings arc to bo erected, and an incidental line of im provements made. "But," said Mr. Morgan, "thc essential consideration of my company is to be centered to ward mining, and after we have made headway and if conditions warrant, the big' camp will come." Thc first car load shipment of ore will leave later in thc month for Humboldt, and arrangements arc be ing made to ship to thc Selby Com pany at San Francisco, which has facilities to handle the molybdenite which is associated with the main values in copper. The new operators are also think ing of bringing a plant from one of their units in New Mexico, that has a. capacity of 500 tons, and this will be done just as soon as the Portland situation warrants. THESE BOYS HAVE FAILED TO SEND IN ANSWERS (From Wednesday's Daily.)

The five who were removed from thc laggard list are thc following: Duro Donzett, Jerome. Antonio Chavez, Flagstaff. George Marro, Dewey. Philip Kauzlarich, Jerome. William Pruett, Humboldt. VENEZIA REVIDED. (From Thursday's Daily.) J. B. Tomlinson, general manager of thc Venezia Gold Mines, was a visitor yesterday, stating that the property was again in action after a suspension of several years, and so far as preliminary operations were to be considered, conditions were grati fying. The Satisfaction claim is the point where operations have been centered, and where Mr. Tomlinson states, some very important deter minations have been made during the past jnonth. The property is to be kept moving, and later the mill starts to drop stamps. Journal-Miner for fine job work. Pin UIU ENTER
