WEEKLY JOURNAL-MINER, WEDNESDAY MORNING, ARPIL 27, 1921
PAGE THREE 1 GATTLE1EN AT NORTHERN MEET (From Wednesday's Daily) E. H. Crabb, president of the Ari zona Cattle Growers' association, ami R. J. Coburn, a prominent local cat tleman, were attending the Montana cattle dissociation meeting Monday and will remain in that state until the middle of the week, getting ac quainted with the northern grazing men. according to word reaching M. II. Hazcltine of this city Monday. Crabb and Cpburn are on a special mission for the cattlemen of Ari zona. It is their object to map out a route by which stock bred in this state can be pastured on the north before being sent to market. Mat ters of finance between the Arizona and northern interests are chief con cern of the emissaries, who will spend several weeks out of the state before they make their reports. ICE SOLD BY POUND, SEE! SMS B. MIS fJournal-Miner Capital Bureau) PHOENIX, April 19. With the approach of hot weather and the busy season for the iceman, the state department of weights and measures is calling attention of ice dealers to section 25 of the weights and measures act which though short, is very explicit. It reads: "Every person, firm or corpora tion engaged in the business of sell ing and distributing ice at retail, shall sell same by weight." This means, according to State In spector Dyas, just what it" states, and the practice of selling ice by "guess" will not be countenanced by the de partment or city scalers of weights and measures. A note of warning is sounded to all sellers of ice to equip their wagons with scales and weigh the ice sold, so that th purchaser may get the exact weight he pays for. Where the householder has no scales with which to rc-wcigh the ice purchased, Inspector Dyas sets forth the following rule for ascertaining the weight in pounds of a piece of ice of any given size: Multiply the length by the width by the height (in inches); then mul tiply the product of that by 0.332 and divide the result by 16. This will give the weight of the piece of ice in pounds. For seven gory rounds, Wild Bill Tanner hammered on the puffed vis age and stocky body of Kid Klemmc and then, pop! A right smash land ed on the Illinois car. the Kid slump ed to the carpet and while Referee Joe Morgan waved his finger ten solemn times, all of the floored fighter that moved was a listless hand. Klemmc was carried to his corner and revived after a little time and Mr. Tanner had earned the right to meet Sergeant Lynch in the -Moose boxing arena, "about the first of May" as the Moose management in dicated. . Except at times, Tanner's blows lacked the put-away steam, but the half dozen times he really jarred Klemme showed he had some mass behind those long arms. Klemmc, on the other hand, did' not land, on Tanner except in clinches, where he hurled himself frequently. But even at close range, Klemme lacked zip, and did not damage his opponent. Early in round one, Tanner drew the liquid from Klemmc's nose and the rest of the fight until the seventh consisted chiefly of the smearing operation by which the blood was plentifully spread over the counten ance and chest of the shorter man. The fight on points was Tanner's from the start. He showed ability to use his feet and a nice sense of time and distance, and when occas ion demanded, could put a good deal of snap back of his blows. How Tanner will fare with Lynch when those two meet, will be the cause for large speculation during the time necessary to prepare for that contest. There is no doubt, however, that Lynch and Tanner will bring before the fans a faster and more scien tific exhibition than that of last night, and there is cause for the an ticipation of the sport follo'vcrs. There was this about Klemmc, however. When he had had his nose hurt and had 'been smartly rapped here and there on his massive per son, he never attempted to evade an issue. While he bored in obviously for shelter, he never feared to meet TIB KAYDS KEE11E IK 7; COOK ITBH one or more wallops that Tanner had in stock. , ".. Before the match) Sergeant Lynch was introduced as .challenging the victor and it .-was also .announced that Young Skinner of Jerome, who could not be present, likewise craved the opportunity of exchanging swats with the best man. A short, fierce and sensational semi-windup' provided interest for the fans. Hume, outclassed in round one of the little controversy with Vailc, who displayed a lightning left and an indomitable desire to use it, swept through two more rather blundery rounds and near the close of the third inning, crashed his op ponent for the count. The fallen gladiator caromed off a corner post and dropped in a sitting position with his legs dangling outside the ring, and there in spite of the very audible count of Mitch Mahone- and ihc frantic rooting of his seconds, he rested, his head dizzy with the im pact. This was while it lasted, a . sen sational little combat and the cus tomers appreciated it. Cook' Wins Grappling Walter Cook, who has appeared in the ring here a number of times, showed his knowledge of the game of grips and levers when he secured two falls from Ben Ecrree. In this match. Cook was substituting for" Loyd Ireland, who was hurt inr the fire that partially ruined the interior of the Moose, hall. Ecrree, outweighed, he said by ' 20 pounds, proved a tough little grap pler, and knowing in the ways 1 of the mat. He made Cook work for his victory and' while the victor showed a wide sagacity in holds and leverages, he had to make both his falls good. After the match, it was anilounced that Cook had accepted the challenge of Cheyenne Kiser, world's cham pion broncho and bareback rider, for a match. Bud Gardner, announcer for the events, issued a challenge to any wrestler in the southwest up' to 160 pounds, though' he weighs but about 150. Kid Karol and Kid Richards ram bled through four rounds that were declared even by-' Referee Mahoney. And it was even. While one fighter had a little blood on his face and the other had none, nobody saw how it came about. It might have been the result of a broken scab. The management of the fight card by the members .of the Moose was of a high type. A very good crowd enjoyed the offerings, and there is hope that more of the same sort of shows can be put on. SHORT UK Proposed Route Would Follow Old Montgomery Trail and Reduce Distance From Pres cott Twenty Miles Construction ot a short line road from Prescott to Walnut Grove, cut ting down the distance between the two towns by about 20 miles, was brqught up at last night's meeting of the chamber of commerce as a pressing need of mine owners and operators below the Climax mine. The road at present into that dis trict is sadly in need of repair for a stretch of several miles, and the situation affords opportunity of con structing at little cost a road which will bring Walnut Grove close enough to this city to divert the large potential trade of that town to Prescott, it was stated last night by Ed Block. The road at present in use leads to Walnut Grove by way of Kirk land, and covers a distance of be tween 36 and 3S miles, while if it were to take the proposed route due south to the Hassayampa and thence to Walnut Grove, the distance would be cut to 16. tapping a section popu lated by many cattlemen and farmers. In addition, the mine operators in the vicinity of the Climax arc hard put to it for adequate road facilities to get into and out of their camps. Among these properties is the Zonia, operated by the Calumet & Arizona people, a . property worthy of con siderable attention. Block stated. Seven miles of the road were con structed last year by the county, and that the road could be continued into Walnut Creek at very little cost. A petition is now being circulated in that part of the county, looking toward the repair of the road in the vicinity of the mines. The road, ac cording to A. C. Gilmore, follows the route of the old Montgomery trail in use in the old days. Gil more believes it is a route which should be revived. The matter will be taken up with the board of supervisors by the chamber of commerce; LIT GROSE T RET EMENT CM Off FOREST (From Thursday's Daily) Plans for the extension of the fire detection sys'lem on the Prescott forest were announced, here yester day by Supervisor H. B. Wales, in connection with the campaign of the forest service to prevent fires dc structive to timber and ranges. Recommendations to the authori ties at Albuquerque, the central of fice for the southwestern 1 district, will be made by J. C. Kirchcr, fire prevention specialist from that office, who has been going over the Pres cott forest with Supervisor Wales, for the construction of four lookout towers in the Crown King district, of this forest. The towers will be lo cated on the tops of Mingus moun tain , Spruce mountain. Tabic moun tain and Mount Union. The plans for this addition to the Prescott forest fire detection system call for the. construction of roads to permit the lookout towers to be reached by niachinc. The towers will be approximately 40 feet high, and will be t constructed of strong timber. Though no funds arc at present on hand for this work, it will be recom mended to the Albuquerque office by Kirchcr that funds be made available. The towers will be a part of the regulation fire detection system ex hibited here last year at the- forestry booth of the X. A. State fair. Look outs from the lop of the towers arc able to spot fires at a considerable distance away, and by means of range finders locate them and phone the information in to the ra"ngcr sta tion nearest the fire. IERDE COBRE IS HEW COPPER GO ORGANIZED (From Thursday's, Dally) Interest is being aroused locally by the organization, qf ,thq. Y.crde Cobre Mines company to take over the Allen Springs group of claims lying about four miles south of the United Verde Extension mines at Jerome. Officers and directors of the company are H. William Stev ens, president; E. J. F. Hornc, vice president; Charles T. Joslin, secre tary-treasurer; W. A. Drake and James A. Hope, directors. The properties which will be ope rated by the Verde Cobre company lie between the Jerome Pacific and the Verde Chief Extension locations, in the same range in which the United Verde and the United Verde Extension arc located. Stevens, who has promoted the properties, has been working on them for some time. In addition to the local men named above, his associ atcs include eastern capitalists. The site of the properties is on Allen Gulch, at an altitude of about 5,813 feet. At one point a cross-cut tunnel is in a little over 300 feet to intercept an outcropping of an in truding cutting the property north east and southwest. About 800 feet farther up the gulch, a second cross cut tunnel has been carried in about 200 feet to intercept an intrusjon of quartz porphyry cropping out on the mountainside on the other side of the creek. It is stated by Stevens that this out-cropping shows decided copper values. The tunnel will have to be driven in another 200 feet be fore ut intercepts the belt and estab lishes the mineralization which it is believed will be found at a depth of about 300 feet from the surface. A third tunnel exists on the prop erty, drifted in on the ore for about 10 feet, with a view to following the ore as far as the Allen shaft from which ore was taken in the early days, and then cross-cutting to the shaft and up-raise to open up the ore body. A fourth tunnel has been driven in a northwesterly direction, at a point farther down the creek.' The Verde Cobre company is be lieved to be one of the promising partly developed properties of the Jerome district. Stevens and his as sociates have been much encouraged by the reports of expert mining en gineers who have examined their holdings. Initial expenditures of the company will be for driving the ex ploratory tunnels with the greatest speed and the least cost possible. No expensive buildings or mill equip ment will be installed until the val ues have been determined beyond doubt. It is understood that the management will install two com pressors in order to hasten the driv ing of the tunnels. PLAN ENLARG OF FIRE DETE WORK ON NORTHERN In a day or two road crews will be placed on the Ash Fork road be tween Ash Fork and Prescott, and on the road between Ash Fork and Scligman, according to County En gineer H. L. Fishel, who has return ed from a 'trip of inspection over these roads with Supervisors W. W. Midgley and C. C. Stiikey. While the roads are for the most part in fair condition, there arc stretches badly in need of repair, and work on these will commence at once. The roads will be graded, ditched and surfaced. Right now, Engineer Fishel says, the county could use more road crews, but has been compelled to cut temporarily in order to reduce expenses. It is his opinion that this condition will not obtain long. Road crews at preseut arc working in the Verde valley, from Jerome to Clarkdate and from Camp- Verde to Stonemau's lake. Another crew is engaged on the Williamson valley road, which passes to the north of the Williamson Valley Farms com pany's ' damsite, . and a fourth is at work on the Black Canyon-road be low Mayer. Engineer Fishel yester day morning went over a part of the Black Canyon road under, process of repair. OEST AS. BE HELD TODAY With the body of Charles J. Mc Nulty. well known mining man who died in the Hassayampa river some time approximately 14 days ago at the mortuary of Lester Ruffner, the coroner last night awaited the find ings of the physicians in an autopsy before proceeding with the inquest. -The coroner's jury will sit W.s morning on 'the case, . That McNulty probably fell from a ledge, two and a half feet high, into the river, and may have met death through this fall, is. the belief of Deputy' Sheriff Murray, one of the party who first found the body. According to Murray, who. returned to town yesterday, the prospector's pick McNulty carried, was lying on this ledge and not in the unfortunate man's hands, as was first reported. The hat, weighted with a stone, lay about 10 feet from the body. The spoy is about' three-quarters of a mile above the point where the old Cotoctin road crosses the Has sayampa. Arrangements for the funeral will probably be announced today, the Prescott lodge of Elks, of which the deceased was a member, having taken part in it. "A plan whereby the old governor's mansion on West Gurley street may be renovated and put into first class condition, and the American Legion at the same time be afforded perm anent and adequate quarters was taken up at last night's meeting of the chamltcr of commerce, follow ing a recent proposal by Supervisor W. W. Midgley that the legion be allowed to use the building provided it sees to it that the grounds and building are put into shape. The county is willing- to place teams and tools at the disposal of the legion for repairing the grounds, and it is believed that money can be found for accomplishing such re pairs as the building needs. Under this plan, the building, it is felt, will be ' kept in the condition due it as a -valuable . historic property, and at the same time serve a purpose in keeping with its nature. Commander W. M. Roberts an nounced that the legion will go into the plan with the greatest enthusi asm, communicating with ex-soldiers who are sons of Arizona pioneers, for the purpose of forming a com mittee in charge, and will set about the work of putting the property in to shape. A working committee will be appointed to co-operate with an auxiliary sub-committee of the cham ber of commerce. The city has approved of the plans for the rehabilitation of the mansion. All that is now needed is to set about put the thing through. Rob erts will report progress of the le gion's activities at next Thursday's meeting of the chamber: INO CR UPON 1 LEGION if Tin mm m m l UU UUI MHUII COURTS GRIND 00T JUSTICE Irrigation Matter Is Heard Be fore Judge Bollinger in "High er" Court and Judge Sweeney Inquires Into Mine Case Some progress was made in two causes-at-law without jury in two court rooms in the county building yesterday. To the visitor seeking the sensations of the usual trial, however, neither Judge Bollinger's court on the third floor, nor that presided over by Judge Sweeney in the regular court room, provided any inducements. The trial of the foreclosure suit of the Phoenix Title and Trust com pany, acting as agents for W. T. Sawyer and Daniel E. Parks against the Alamos Land and Irrigation company, before Judge Bollinger of Mohave county, was a trifle the more interesting of the two on ac count of the warm passages between Judge Parks, counsel and witness for the plaintiff, and opposing 'counsel. At one stage of the cross-examination, Judge Parks interposed objec tion to' a question from his scat in the witness chair, and, 'it having in volved a general discussion and dis closed the fact the question had been answered in an exhibit, the judge's objection was upheld by the judge oir the bench. Walter Bennett of Phoenix, coun sel for the defendant company, had had correspondence read into the record, and Judge Parks attacked the use of the correspondence as "a man's private affairs."- The plaintiff 'is represented by J. E. Russell, and W. T. Sawyer, who with Judge- Parks was original owner of tlie land in the Date , creek coun try, now in litigation, was one of the witnesses. He, said the corpora lion had paid half the stipulated sum' of $80,000 and issued bonds on which interest had not been paid. He had demanded payment of this interest, and also payment of taxes on the land and insurance on the structures. Jerome-Superior In the lower cdtfrt'room, so 'called, not to infer that the bench there was inferior in anything save actual physical elevation, Judge Sweeney heard a reading of depositions that required virtually all day. The case involves a controversy among of ficers and stockholders in the Jerome-Superior Copper company over control of the .corporate affairs. With the moving over to Prescott from the Verde valley of the two I county road crews now at work -in i that section, ' construction of the county's share of the Prescott Whipple road will begin early this week. The road will be graded from Washington avenue, the city limits to the Whipple gates, surfaced and capped with a good quality of gravel, according to County Engineer H. L. Fishel. Considerable work will be entailed I in constructing the road, since from I the city limits to Arizona avenue, the route followed by the present I Gurley street road to the barracks, 1 it will have to be cut through mala pai rock for a distance of 500 feet. Some of this rock is solid, part of it loose. About 1,500 yards of rock and earth will have to bi, moved from this cut. It had been planned by Engineer Fishel to surface and cap the road with crushed rock from' the Puntcn ney quarries, but this ' scheme was discarded when it was found that the rock could not be bought, hauled to Prescott and crushed for less than $6 or $7 a yard. As for cinders. Engineer Fishel finds them unsatis factory for surfacing, being too soft and powdery. The gravel to be used on the road will probably be taken from the bed of Granite creek. This material will be rolled thoroughly into the surface of the road and capped with a good quality of gravel. Work on the city's share of the road is progressing. The city crew is now busy laying the second large culvert on East Sheldon street, and when this and the flumes arc laid, will start the actual street work! COUNT!

Two Soldier Organization Now Brought Into Scheme to Util ize Old Governor's Mansion and Open It to Public (From Saturday's Dally) In accordance with the announce ment at the chamber of commerce meeting Thursday night, April 21st, W. M. Roberts, commander of the American Legion, of this city, has appointed a committee to co-operate with the chamber of commerce, the county supervisors and the city o Prescott in any move that will be made to bring about the restoration and opening to the public of the ter ritorial governor's mansion and the keeping of relics and history of the early days of Arjzona. Asked as to" the suggestion that the Veterans of Foreign Wars or ganization be also included in the plan to keep open house at the. ter ritorial mansion, Roberts expressed himself as heartily in accord. The Committee Alfred Gale, chairman, Dr. Harry T. Southworth, George Nilsson, Em mett Morrison, Ernest Kittredge, Harry Shumate, Alfred B. Carr, A C. Johnson, Harry Smith. Clarence Kessler, Roy Chambers, H. W. Ex ter, Kenneth Aitkcn and Edward M, Harris. Acting on the suggestion that the Veterans of Foreign Wars be given an opportunity to assist in the trust of keeping alive the connection be tween the pioneer days and the present, and have headquarters in the territorial mansion, Roberts confer red with M. L. Ganey, commander of the "Buckey" O'Neill post of the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Ganey at once responded with enthusiasm typ ical of the off-handed judgment of earlier days and as an earnest of his co-operation appointed a com inittee- to co-operate with that of the legion, the chamber of commerce, and other interested organizations and persons. The personnel of this committee includes James Lowry, Jr., Albert Akin, L. C. Neal, William Allen, John H. Shull, George Tracy, and A. Curric. Mayor' Goldwater will be invited by the committees to give the benefit of his long association with affairs of this community and the state, and the various pioneer socjeties, and as many of the pioneers themselves as can be reached will be asked to give their advice and support to the move to provide for the keeping in safety, the marks which were blazed on the early Arizona trail. It is expected that a joint meet ing of the committees appointed to represent the two organizations of the men who served in the world war will be called early next week. At that time a sub-committee rep resenting both organizations -will probably be selected to co-operate with an auxiliary sub-committee of the chamber of commerce. The com mander of the Ernest A. Love post of the American Legion sfated that he expected the committee to report such progress as had been made to the chamber of commerce at its meeting April 28. i LEGION, I. f. I NAME WORKERS HEART DISEASE DEATH Verdict Returned by Coroner's Jury on Death of C J. Mc Nulty; Funeral Services Will Be Held Today (From Saturday's Daily) Charles J. McNulty, pioneer miner of Yavapai county, whose body was found Tuesday in the Hassayampa river a mile away from the McBride McNulty mining claim on which he had camped for 25 years, and three quarters of a mile from the old Ca toctin road; died of organic heart disease, it was found by the cor oner's jury called by Judge Charles H. McLanc yesterday to hold in quest upon the mariner of McNuIty's death. Dr. H. T. Southworthr who con ducted a postmortem examination Thursday, appeared before the cor oner's jury yesterday and reported his finding to be that McNulty had died of organic heart 'trouble. The ycrdict was given upon the basis of tliis testimony, by a jury composed of A. B. Noxon, foreman, Bud Fitz maurice, R. L. Joyce, James Daley, Paul' Ambert, and William Baird. Funeral services for Mr. McNulty will be held at the Church of the Sacred Heart at 3 o'clock fills after noon,' Reverend Father Eustace Fla menco officiating. Interment will take place at the Mountain View cemetery. Charles J. McNulty was born in Minnesota 68 years ago. He came west as a young man, and for a time worked as an expert pumpman in 'mines in Colorado.- He came to Prescott in the early nineties. Since his entrance into that field YAVAPAI'S ROADS IN Chamber of Commerce Member Re ports Condition of Roads at Commercial Body Meet Yavapai's roads are in first-class condition, according to Christ Tot ten, who returned here Thurlday from Phoenix. The roads between here and the state capital, Totten re ported at the chamber of commerce meeting .Thursday night, are excel lent on this side of the county line, compared to their condition from that line to the outskirts of Phoenix. The. Black Canyon road is in very bad shape below the county line, and the other road below Wickenburg; is not all it might be. At the meeting it was moved by Totten that a vote of thanks be ex tended the board of supervisors 'by the chamber of commerce for the excellent condition in which Yava pai's roads are, generally - speaking, to be found. This motion was car ried with an amendment conveying a vote of thanks to the Phoenix chamber of commerce and the auto mobile dealers of that city, as well as to the Phoenix Republican, for the splendid publicity given Prescott and Yavapai county in the "See Ari zona First" campaign being conduct ed in the southern city. DR. URCH RETURNING Dr. W. H. B. Urch, pastor of the First Congregational church here, who has. been on the coast due to illness, writes that he will be in the city in time to resume his pulpit Sunday. INEXPENSIVE INQUIRY WASHINGTON, D. C, April 21.
