' iWEEKEYt JOURNSL'-MINER. WEDNESDAY MORNING, APRIL 24, 1918. UN SEA VOYAGE TO FRANCE ATTORNEY ANDERSON IN RECEIFT OF INTEREST ING LETTERS FROM HIS FORMER LAW PARTNER, NOW "OVER. THERE." (From rriday's Daily.) Attorney LcRoy Anderson last night received a set of very interest ing letters from Sergeant George Xilsson, a former law- partner of the recipient, the young man having landed in France but a short time ago. The letters were unusually in teresting in that they set forth the manner in which the Arizona lads were inarched away through the inky darkness of a winter morning from the cantonment to the port of embark ation, and of how the boys wore their life preservers continuously during the sea voyage while the ship was in imminent danger of bumping into one of the kaiser's sea skunks. Through the courtesy oT Mr. An derson, the Journal-Miner is per mitted to print the letters, which arci as follows: At Sea, Monday. March IS. 1918. Dear Mr. and Mrs. Anderson: I understand we arc ncaring France so I am getting this ready to post as soon as we get there. I hope I will be able to cable you my address as soon as T am located, but if cable is inaccessible I will write you at once. Please put my address in the Journal Miner so all my friends can see it and write me. I should also like to have the daily Journal-Miner sent to me. I think it will be best to tic them up and send them once a week. I am feeling fine and, fortunately, was not a bit sick. The sea has been good all the time. Many of the boys, however, were sick the first day or two. Wc left Camp Mcrritt. Xcw York, at 5:15 a. m. one morning. It was pitch dark and raining and wc marched quietly through the rain and mud to th': railroad station. We took the train to the port of embarkation and marched a mile through the city to the pier. While waiting our turn to embark the Red Cross gave us hot coffee and buns. The men arc quartered in the hold of the ship three bunks to each tier. Everything is crowded, but this is to be expected. The sixth day out I was able to get a bunk in a 2nd class stateroom so it is much more conven ient and pleasant than down below. Please be sure to keep Frank Brown posted as to my address. lie was going to secure a Masonic di ploma for mc but I have not yet re ceived it. A cruiser escorted us up until this morning when a fleet of destroyers took us over and the cruiser turned back toward home. Yesterday was a beautiful day, with a calm sea. Last night it was moon light. AH the decks were crowded with soldiers. All the guns were fully manned and everything was readiness and watchfulness. It was very thrill ing. Wc now sleep fully dressed and wear our life belts all day. The trip has been uneventful. Will you please send my address to Alfred. Also let mc know if you can when he leaves so I can be on the lookout for him. Please remember mc to all of my Prescott friends. 1 think of you all a great deal. Have plenty of time to think here as there is little chance to do anything. Lights go out at six so we can do nothing in the eve nings. My love to both of you. Affcctionatelv. GEORGE NTLSSOX, Bn. Sgt. Major, U. S. A. Depth Bomb Fired In a French Port, Wednesday livening. March 20, 1918. Dear Mr. and Mrs. Anderson: ' Yesterday afternoon one of our destroyers fired a depth bomb at what was supposed to be a sub. Wc did a lot of maneuvering and nothing more came of it. Last evening I went to bed fully clothed but could not sleep. About midnight 1 heard a lot of commotion on deck so went out and found our rudder was broken. It seems one of the destroyers signalled danger and in trying to make a quick turn our ship broke its rudder. Wc were unfortunate in having beautiful moonlight every night while in the danger zone, but we came through all right. . We put into tli port for repairs and will run 'Xt miles to our destina tion tomorrow. It seems good lo lie still once more aft' r all the rocking, and they have allowed the lights to remain on this e . riling: Thursdav noon We weighed an chor at 6 a. iil and arc now steam ing along the coast of France. Wc expect to tie up at the pier some time late today. The scenery is very pretty along the coast, forest, picturesque villages and nice looking towns. Wc arc past all danger now. Love to all, ALFRED. "Send Us Some Books" In Harbor, France, March 2., 1918. Dear Mr. and Mr. Anderson: We hae not vet docked because our csscl had a little too much draught for the river and wc had lo stay I. ere to unload mine of our cargo on liters. I understand we 1' a r he;c thi- aft nioon and 1 sup po" wc will laud l :orrov , Sunday. I arrived at and left Camp lunstoii on Sunday, so it seems Sunday is my day. I wish you would read the follow ing books: "Scars and Stripes," by Porter Emerson Brown, and "A Stu dent in Anns," by Donald Hankey. If you have any books you don't want and care to send away, or care to do something, I wish you would send them to cither of the following men, as they have been more than kind to mc in many ways: Lluef Lom missarv Steward J. T. Campbell, and Chief Commissary Steward Ernest Erath. Address thcin U. S. S. Mer cury, care postmaster, New York City. Am feeling fine but will be glad to be on land again. Love to all. Affectionately, GEORGE. GOOD NEWS FROM CROWN KING MINES fFrom Saturday's Daily) Francis S. Viclc, president of the Arizona Power Company and also of the Bradshaw Reduction Company, motored to Crown King Tuesday ac companied by several of the direc tors of the last named company which is a close and rather exclusive cor poration. They returned yesterday and report thoroughly satisfactory progress both at the Wildfiowcr mine and at the reduction plant at Crown King. nA..nln... i.-nrl tt ill Wilrl- (lower has opened sonic unexpected j chutes of ore of godd grade. Produc-j tion continues satisfactorily. Thc wax tramway has been getting the , ore down to the mill with all antici pated expedition and economy- of operation. Work at the mill is producing thor oughly satisfactory results. The process employed enables the refrac tory ores of the Wildfiowcr to be worked to good advantage. Xonc of the properties in the im mediate neighborhood of the mill at Crown King is being operated at the present time. "The trip to Crown King was made by automobile in four hours." said Mr. Vielc. "The road was in very good condition till the branch to Crown King from the Canyon road was reached. The Bradshaw- Reduc tion Company had spent several hun dred dollars on the road and had made it passable. With a little morel money and proper attention in the j way of upkeep, wc could have a good read to Crown King and the forty miles of the trip could be made eas ily in three hours and a half. The road could be made of so much value to so niany properties and the money required would be so little that it is tnilv denlnralile that the snncrvisorsi cannot see their way to finish up the little stretch that still remains before the Crown King road is finished. "You can say, too, that Crown King is doing its full duty in the mat ter of the Third Liberty Loan. Al ready they have subscribed for $11, 000 worth of bonds. This includes the subscription of the town people as well as the employees of the Brad shaw Reduction Company. The town's record is 95 per cent pure. If there were not so many buying Thrift Stamps up to the limit of their in vesting capacity, the percentage "of subscribers would be even greater." i i COLORADO PEOPLE IN TIP TOP FIELD (From Saturday's Daily) A. IT. Lord, Bennett Starr and V. L. Tighc, mining operators of Colo rado, are in the Tiptop field making observations, in which silver proper ties arc to be examined, a deal being under consideration. Mr. Lord is now in this cily investigating title to a certain group, and later negotiations may be concluded. He said yester day: "The necessity has at last arisen for the government to take action in plac ing a standard valuation of a dollar an ounce on this metal, which has been anticipated for over a year, and it is now assured that further specu lation and shaky market manipula tion will cease. This will fortify operators, and bring back millions of money for legitimate investment. It is on that belief wc arc in Arizona to look over the country, but wc find one undesirable handicap for operating, and that is the lack of transportation, which must be remedied to permit the low graders to be worked profit- ably. Otherwise this region is finite attractive, and it is surprising to sec what a large number of old mines: went out when the bimetal crash came." GETS OUT OF ALASKA ONLY TO BE DRAFTED (From Saturday's Daily) Writing from Alberta. Canada, of recent da'c, Hamilton Anderson has a "hard luck" story to relate to a Prescott friend, as follows: " finally got away from the Nome country in Alaska, after a two years' nisllc, and returned here to visit with :t married sister, when the jig was up. The third day a province conscrip tion officer handed mc a note which requested my presence at 10 a. m. at his office. I was caught by the draft, and there was no parleying per mitted, so I will take the medicine and go to Toronto for classifying. I made a mistake in not staying in , avapni to complete my naturaliza tion, having tiled ni application ocr four year.- ago to renounce citizen ship as an Englishman. I am over .15 now, i.iul don't you know thev have my age down in this country i as it is. 1 have done fairly well in. placcring. and intended to lake a long lay-off. So here goc for the goodi cause: what's the use of roaring:" j Anderson worked at different camps: 'it thi- lo-alil and It ft Ljnx. creek about tr-o vcars ago with other min-j crs for Alaska. FUNERALOFRGBT. MILLER LARGELY ATTENDED MAN WHO WAS KILLED BY BUD STEPHENS IN THIS CITY MORE THAN TWO WEEKS AGO, LAID TO REST YESTERDAY. (From Friday's DaKy.) The Hmcral services of the late Robert J. Miller, who on April 2nd was shot and killed by Bud Stephens in this city, occurred yesterday after noon at 3 o'clock from the mortuary chapcl of Lester Ruffner. A large crowd was present at the last rites, the larger part of the gathering be ing composed of women. The service was in charge of Rev. Batten of the Congregational church, and .during his discourse the speaker took occa-l sion to draw a lesson from the un-! fortunate man's sudden taking oft while he was yet in the prime of his manhood and far from the allotted three score and ten. "Yc are not responsible for our, birth, nor can wc control the tunc j and method of our death," said Rev. 1 Batten, "bu we arc responsible for' the period between birth and death.; We shape life, and life determines our destiny in the future world. Be not deceived: God is not mocked, for whatsoever a man sowelh that v;hall he also reap. If a man sowcth tO his flesh, he shall of the flesh reapj corruption, but if he soweth to the, spirit, he shall of the spirit reap life . everlasting. There laws are inexor able. Thcv operate alike in the nat ural world and the moral life. Xo' man is foolish enough to expect to gather figs from thistles, or to sow. turnip seed and reap a crop of wheat. I Xo more can he sow to the flesh in bad habits and reap a harvest of de cency in this life and the rewards of virtue in the next life. "Here we sorrowfully look upon the j remains o: a young man who was mc victim of a wholly unjustifiable, cold blooded and premeditated murder, and were it not for the fact that manv men arc wont to violate the laws of God and man, this unfortunate victim would still be alive and in our midst j today. oou lias set liuuscli up as the sole power which is to exercise judgment upon man, and under abso-! ltitcly no circumstances docs it lay within the province of an individual to take the law into his own hands, and go so far as to say that a human life must be brought to a close for some alleged shortcomings of this Imuran hcinc and wlicn a man cocs forth with a gun and terminates the I life of a man, the man be good or bad, he is usurping the powers which belong solely to the Creator. "Wc arc not this man's judge. Judgment belongs to the just and! merciful God and wc leave him in his compassionate care. Whatccr may have been his faults, the ending of his' life as it was, was an inexcusable I crime. Xo individual is justified inj arrogating to himself the punishment J of another. The great lesson wc all should learn from this occurrence isj the necessity of obedience to duly, constituted authority. Whether in the life of the family, the city or the State, this is fundamental to civili zation and essentia! to the safety of society. When wc depart from the orderly operation of law to secure our ends, whether these ends in them selves be laudable or criminal, wc lay the foundations of anarchy in the community and ourselves become members of the criminal class. In the individual life and in the community! life, according as wc sow so shall wcj inn'ttilili- iwn" ' Xonc of Miller's relatives were present at the funeral, nor were the; authorities able to get in touch vvithj any of them. A large number of hisj friends from the Williamson valley district were present to view the re mains for the last time, and the six pall bearers were intimates of the de ceased. Interment was made in the Mountain View cemetery, northwest of the city. DRAFT MEN WILL LEAVE CITY ON APRIL 27TH (From Friday's Daily.)

C, re turned East yesterday, with a unique collection of horned toads, number ing over 250, which he gathered in a few days in the enden cotmtry. Tin se ercati'res, h" stated, arc to be experimented upon lo provide a serum for certain human ailments, in the form of an. anti-toxin treatment to combat specific diseases which arc developing among American soldiers, at home and overseas. A French al-j chemist, he stated, is the discoverer of the horned toad juice and its applica tion has proved remedial in hundreds of instances and has been success fully used in the Allied armies. Later Mr. Rays is to return to the desert region accompanied by assistants, when several thousand of these na tives arc to be rounded up. BELOVED WOMAN CALLED BY REAPER (From Friday's Daily.) Illness of short duration proved fatal on Wednesday night to Mrs. Ida A. Dutcher, at her home in Skull valley. She was born in Allegany, X. Y., September 27, 1855, and was the daughter of Mrs. Orlando Smith. She married Dr. Egbert W. Dutcher September 29, 1878 and with her hus band came to Prescott to reside in July, 1S92.

(From Saturday's Daily) The question as to who paid the rent for Mrs. Rip Van Winkle while the old man was away, or where, Robinson Crusoe went with Friday on Saturday night, isn't exciting half as much interest locally as is the qucry as to which side is going to come out on top of the beautiful row which began popping here yesterday after noon between the members of the Yavapai county exemption board and Adjutant General Harris. Fcelincr that the local board has . J - - i,ccn usurping Ins prerogatives in tlic matter of having the final say as to whether certain of the registered men si,0uld be inducted into the army, Col. Harris waxed wroth while seated in j,;s offices at Phoenix. Yesterday he nnrkcil nn his inninhnuk in his allirra'- tor j)aR allj boarded the train bound for Prescott, bent upon administering a chastisement upon the recreant board members. The reception which the Colonel received from the board was apparently not at all in keeping with the sort of a reception which he imagined would be forthcoming.
