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.
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
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

Quite an array of legal talent was
in the Superior court yesterday after
noon when the argument of the law
points involved in the action of the
Copper Queen Gold Mining Company
vs. the Arizona Binghamton was
opened before Judge Sweeney. Norris
and Spalding, assisted by A. H. Fa
vour, were present to represent the
plaintif', while the defendant's inter
ests were in the hands of LcRoy
Anderson, assisted by Attorney Geo.
Purdy Bullard of .Phoenix. The
Queen is suing the Binghamton tor
$200,000 for alleged breach of con
tract, tl'.e companies having at one
time entered, it is said, into a con
tract whereby the defendant was to
treat the ores of the plaintiff. The
complaint charged that the Bingham
ton had failed to carry out its part
of the agreement, thereby causing a
material loss to the plaintiff. The
attorneys representing the defendant
were given ten days by the court in
which to cite and file; .authorities
supporting their contentions. The
defense was given a like period to
prepare and file an answer, and then
if the plaintiff so desired, it could
have five days additional in which
to file a reply to the defendant s ans
wer, f ollowing this process, inc case
will come to trial.

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.
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

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
to the government. If he doesn't

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.

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:

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

less, alone and apparently penniless,
was the owner of an estate valued

This state of affairs was revealed
after an investigation was made of his

dealings with thc deceased1, for many
years, or during his absence from

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
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.

(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.
