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.
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.'

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.
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.

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'
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.
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
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.

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
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.
