PAGE THREE 1 lap BIH MEETS Members of New County Organ ization Will Ratify Constitu tion at Meeting to Be Held Here Saturday Afternoon (From Friday's Daily) A meeting of the Yavapai County Farm Bureau is called for next Sat urday, June -25th, at 2 o'clock p. m., in the rooms of the chamber of commerce, Prescott, for the purpose of ratifying the constitution and per fecting the organization. All mem bers of the farm bureau are urged to be present, and particularly the presi dents of the local farm organizations over the county. Anyone interested in agriculture and stock-growing is cordially invited to attend. There are a number of matters of great interest to be discussed at this meeting, among them the farm bu reau questionnaire, which is sent out by the American Farm Bureau Fed cration, in order that the agricul tural interests of the country may have a nation-wide expression of opinion on federal legislation that will be passed in the near future. It is desired to get a carefully tab ulated vote, of the farm bureau mem bers on these questions and delegates are asked to come prepared so far as possible to vote on them and also to vote by proxy the members of their local organizations. Plans for the activities of the bu reau for the coming year will also be discussed and the matter of se lection of a county agent considered. Everyone interested in agricultural pursuits should make it a point to be present. TO IS Report of Sixty Automobiles Stalled at Needles Unconfirmed by "Wire Denying High Water Reports of high water, said to have held up 60 automobiles at Needles, yesterday were unconfirmed in a wire received by Bob Byrns, of the Ari zona Bus company. Byrns wired E. H. Walker of Kingman, and received the following reply: "No trouble account high water. Short detours. Water falling." The message was sent when it was feared the roads into California might be impassible because of Colorado river floods, and when it was heard that a large number of cars had been stalled at Needles. CHICAGO, June 23. The Waseda University baseball team of Tokyo, Japan, which has just started a sec ond invasion of the eastern states on its fourth quadrennial American tour, left Chicago with a percentage of .357 in games won but had almost an even break on points scored, with 62 runs to 63 for their opponents. In the hit column, the Japanese out numbered their opponents 112 to 104. The Jaanese have played practical ly every large college and university in the country since they landed in San Francisco on April 30.' All of their games have been close, no op ponent scoring more" than nine runs in a game, while Waseda took North western to a neat trimming of 17 to -. The Japs lost to Harvard, Yale, Illinois and Pennsylvania by one point in each game. Baseball, as played by Americans, is exactly the same as played in Japan, but the teams are, as a whole, much faster, according to M. Naka mura, graduate manager and score keeper of the Waseda nine. "And your western teams are stronger than the eastern ones," he added. "Illinois has a much stronger team than Harvard or Yale, I think.' ISE HEME CENTRAL THUH9MT FIDE Origin of Blaze Ending Mine's Development Work Found to Be Heating Torches and Gas Tank Leakage LONG COE SHORT Services for Pioneer Railroad Man of This 'County, Held Yester day, Attended by Many (From Friday's Dally) Funeral services for Edward Mur phy, of Hillside, pioneer resident and railroad man of this county, were held at 8 o'clock yesterday morning at the Church of the Sacred Heart, Father Eustace Flamenco officiating. Burial took place at the Mountain View cemetery. Edward Murphy, for nearly 40 years a resident of this county, en gaged in railroading, dropped dead in Prescott about three weeks ago, of heart failure. He was employed by the Santa Fe railroad at Hillside at the time of his death. The deceased enjoyed a wide ac quaintance among the pioneers of the county. His funeral yesterday was an impressive and largely at tended ceremony. TEN BEST BUCKERS Fred Dugas, of Sycamore, is go ing to bring to Prescott ten head of outlaws to compete in the "best bucking horse" contest. The man agement is offering $100 in cash for the best bucking horse brought in and Dugas figures that there are mighty few in a class with the ten head he is bringing to the arena grounds. These animals range from seven to nine years old and are guar anteed to give the cowhands in this year's contest a trip to the moon, with special letters of introduction to old Mother Earth. SHARP by Jones: Women certainly go contraries. Bones: That's the truth. You tell a woman she is dull and she will go out of her way to cut you. Cartoons Magazine: W FILL FASHIONS (From Saturday's Daily) New fall styles, showing a combi nation of the long coat and short skirt, awakening intense interest in suits, especially among the younger set, are being displayed here. The new coat embodies the straight line, but includes a slight fullness at bot torn of sides or back, that is extreme' ly smart, and is decidedly the thing for the well-dressed woman. Names of the new cloths would fill a book, tyit a few of those for coats are Marvclls, Orlando, Polly ana. Ermine, Velora, Bellvera, Nor mandy, Rivoli, Astralure, Veldette, Velinette. Touraine and Doeskin. In suits are to be found the desired tricotincs and serges, velours and delaines, including suedete, the new striped velours, and the finer duve tynes, of which Moussyne, a new Fortsman & Hoffman creation, is the most important. The fall season always brings back browns in all shades, reindeer and date included. Blues are important, navy and Harding being among the most popular. More blacks will be worn than formerly, and grays and taupes will figure in milady's ward' robe. In furs, beaver and its imitations (nutria and beaverette), are being seen, as are squirrel and the newest things all "curly furs," caracul, baby lamb and lynx show an indica tion of being very popular. Many of these new coats, suits. cloths, etc., were displayed here by C. L. Flaws of the Redfern women's suit and cloak house of Chicago, and purchased by C. W. Lawrence & Son. They may now be seen at Lawrence's East Gurley street store in the Bank of Arizona building. COOPER TO If E A LITTLE LONGER REST Confessed Moonshiner Who Waxed Chatty With Court Gets 30 Days, $100 Fine (From Saturday's Dally) A little longer rest from the weary life of the free and untrammeled will probably enable E. D. Cooper time for enough reflection on the matter of -the recent prohibition laws so that he will hereafter refrain from making of the cup that cheers. Cooper a few days ago pleaded guilty before Judge Sweeney to a charge of having manufactured al coholic liquor, and in quite a confi dential chat with his honor, dis closed his motives and the source of his chemical knowledge. A rearing under the auspices of a Virginia father, than whom as a maker of moonshine few could be than whoomer, enabled Cooper to arrive at some delicious stuff. He was sentenced yesterday morn ing to 30 days in the county jail and to pay a fine of $100. Cooper's family is supposed to have been a factor in obtaining him a light sent ence. Cause of the lire which burned several buildings at the Verde Cen tral mine near Jerome Thursday morning, and put a temporary end to development operations at the mine yesterday was learned to be torches which were being used to warm up the "hot head" of the com pressor engine. It is the opinion of E. L. Bartholomew, mine superin tendent, based on statements of men in the room at the time, that there had been a small leak from the. gaso line tank near the engine and that the flame from one of the torches reached the spilled liquid. Despite every effort of the men in the engine room, the fire spread and the flimsy structure was almost in stantly a mass of flames. Every care was taken to prevent the fire spreading to the head-frame of the shaft and to the oil and gasoline storage tanks nearby and, aided by a high wind blowing directly away from the danger spots, these efforts were successful. The gallows frame took fire more than once but the flames were beaten out before any real damage was done. It is feared that the fire put the hoist engine and compressor beyond repair. The damaged machinery was being examined yesterday to de termine whether repairs would be possible. Arrangements have been made, it is understood, for the ship ment of new machinery if it shall prove impossible to restore the old to operative condition. Development Hit The fire will compel the suspen sion of much of the development work and it occurred at about the most unfortunate time that could be imagined as the west crosscut had just gone 10 feet into the very best showings that have yet been develop ed in the mine. Samples of the new discover' were taken to Jerome- yesterday and some of them were solid masses of chalco pyrite with heavy occurrences of glance and a little bornite. The opening of these new showings proves absolutely the existence of one of the largest ore bodies ever opened in the Verde district and Superin tendent Bartholomew was making preparations to prospect the discov ery at top speed. Officials Absent The officials of the company other than the superintendent are in the east and did not plan to return for some time. They were advised of the accident by wire and have given instructions to have the damage re paired regardless of expense and with the possible minimum of delay. It is hoped that ten days or two weeks will be sufficient to get the plant in operating condition once more, and, by that time, it is expect ed that plans for the further immed iate development of the property on a much larger scale will have been completed and can be made public.

Compete for Contest Honors LICENSED TO WED (From Saturday's Daily) From the remote reaches of Min gus mountain there have been snar ed, enticed and finally corraled, the meanest, orneryest lot of wild out laws that ever trod the range. These, numbering 30, were gathered by Kiser, Overton, Fitzmaurice and Vest. Like the old Indian who visit ed the Northern Arizona State fair, for the first time, coming to civiliza tion sirice his arrival in Arizona and shying at the court house for fear it would fall in on him, the cow boys, gathering these outlaws ' set their alarms so they could bring the critters in during the wee, sma' hours of dawn, knowing if they ever hit the town when the least excitement hovered near, it would have been good-bye wild horses and cowboys. These were gathered on the Dia mond E ranch and will be used in the wild -horse races during the Frontier days. In this event $280 will be awarded, divided: First, $30 second, $20; third, -$15; fourth, $5 awarded daily, and with no entrance fee. The wild horse race is one of the most sensational events of the pro gram and is sufficiently interesting and exciting to keep the grandstand crowds on their feet, busting first with laughter and then excitement until the last man comes across the home-stretch. Each contestant is obliged to furn ish his own outfit and be attired in full cowboy regalia, chaps, spurs, etc, They are allowed two helpers, se lected by the contestant, .-and all three are required to be ready at the call of the arena director. The contestants draw for horses, number one being the first horse led out of the chute. Each horse is led out as his number conies, in rotation, and is turned over to the contestant and helpers as quickly as his hind feet leave the chute door. All horses have halters and halter shank on th,em. The helpers and contestants are allowed to hold the horse bj rein only, until signal is given to start. Until the signal is given, the contestant's saddle must remain on the ground. Neither 'the contestant nor his helpers are per- mittted to "gentle" horse in any way and no foot roping is allowed. When the contestants have been supplied with horses and all are in line, the signal is given to start the race by gun shot. After gun shot, contestant may blindfold his horse if he so chooses. Any infringement on the rules or abuse of horses by con testant or helpers disqualifies all three from this event during the en tire contest. The contestant, winning race must complete half-mile circuit. Mia or jit Mi FLYER . BACK III POST Lieut. Alex Pearson Completes Job at Grand Canyon; Cam eron Obtains Airplane Detail for Frontier Days Flights CASE TOMORROW (From Sunday's Dally) Identification of a head and torso found Friday afternoon at the bot tom of in abandoned twenty-foot shaft about four miles from Hooper, as that of Walter Steinbrook, 48-year-old prospector and rancher, who disappeared about December 26, last, and who is believed to have been murdered, are not yet official, it was brought out lat night in a statement by Judge Charles H. McLane, who yesterday headed a coroner's jury wbich visited the scene at which the remains were, discovered. Indications are considered strong, however, that the parts of a human, body found wrapped and tied in a gunnysack are those of Steinbrook. Examination of the teeth by a quali fied dentist, and examination of such of the body as remains to examine, are being counted on to establish the identification. Strong grounds ex ist for a belief that the coroner's jury when it convenes here; Monday will return a verdict of death by homicide. Visiting the abandoned shaft yes terday afternoon, a party of officials, including Judge McLane, the cor oner's jury, Sheriff Warren G. Davis, County Attorney John L. Sullivan and Lester Ruffner, uncovered the remains from their hiding place at the bottom of the shaft, where they had lain since their discovery Friday. They had. not been touched since they were uncovered by a party from Mayer, which included Frank Wilson, nephew of Walter Stein brook, and Tommy Thompson, May er deputy scheriff. Attention to the shaft was first directed by an odor of decaying flesh and a large number of flies 'buzzing about the mouth of the opening. It was at first believed by some that a beef had been killed and the hide buried in the shaft. Recol lection of the disappearance of Wal ter Steinbrook, however, led to an investigation, and when the party from Mayer dug into the shaft Fri day, they discovered the body tied in a gunnysack. The coroner's party yesterday fully uncovered the -remains and removed them from their hiding place, bring ing them into Prescott, where they now lie in the morgue. Only the head and torso of the body were found, the legs and arms having been severed from the body. It is believed these parts were hidden or buried elsewhere, or are in the sack, all of which was not examined, no indication being found of their hav ing been buried with the toTso, which had been covered with several feet of earth. The abandoned shaft in which the body was found was described by- Judge McLane last night as being located at the top of a hill about two miles from the nearest dwelling place, a farm house where Stein brook, before his disappearance, lived with a man known as La- Grange. The house is about two miles from Hooper.

WEATHER appeal to the state supreme court and a quick decision of that body that Martin's case was closed so far as the state authorities were concern ed. The appeal, taken on the eve of his scheduled execution on June IU, acted as a stay, and as a result, the date passed and the supreme court ordered the case back' to the superior court for the second im position of the death penalty. Martin was brought to Prescott late Friday evening by Sheriff Davis, and it is understood, will be re-conveyed to Florence to the prison upon being sentenced.
