NUMEROUS ARE NUEPHZQ WHIPPLE ILL BE A REGULAR STOP ON HQ (From Wednesday's Daily) Through the co-operation of the officers at Fort Whipple and the management of the Santa Fe Rail way company, arrangements have been completed for the establishment of the post as a regular railroad sta tion. A depot is to be provided and all passenger trains will make regu lar scheduled stops there. All the facilities of a regular station will be established. This information was given out yesterday by Superintend ent Storey. Mr. Storey also stated that the Parker cut-off road had been put in the finest kind of shape and that work is now being pushed to put all the bridges in first class condition on that line. In fact this work would be completed by now, if it had not been for the unfortunate fire which destroyed the Clarkdale bridge, and which required the bring ing of every available bridge crew to that point to rush reconstruction as that bridge put Clarkdale and Jerome out in the country without any . rail road service. The new Clarkdale bridge is finished and is in better shape than before the fire. As soon as the bridges are in proper shape and "as soon as all other necessary details can be worked out, it is the plan of the company to put six of the fast running No. 1270 type engines on between California and Arizona points to speed up the passenger schedule, and it is thought about an hour more can be cut off from the present schedule. The new schedule of-May "cut half an hour off from the old running time. Mr. Storey says the Parker cut-off is in better shape than it has ever been, as thousands of new ties have been put in, and the track ballasted and tamped till it is firm and on account pf the fine stretches of level road as straight as a gun barrel, excellent time will be made.

Pauline Hall, Colored, to Be Sen tenced in City Police Court To day for Minor Offense ' Arrested Wednesday night for dis charging firearms within the city limits, Pauline Hall, colored, yester day appeared before City Police Judge John H. Robinson, for ar raignment. She entered a plea of guilty, maintaining she had fired the gun because she believed someone was in her room. She was remand ed to jail to await sentence, which will be pronounced today. The woman was at first arrested on, a charge involving; the "drawing of 'firearms - on .''another-1 person. But when the identity of the person she claimed had entered her room and at tempted to rob her could not be es tablished, the charge, on trial in the justice court, was changed to that on which she was tried yesterday in the city court. if SERVE ALL E MAIL In Chief Clerk of Railway Mail Di vision Here to Inspect Jerome Route and See If It Can Be Extended to Serve Clarkdale Extension of recently inaugurated motor truck 'mail service to Jerome over other parts of the Verde valley is the object of a visit here of Chief Clerk Raegcr of the eighth division of the railway mall service. Mr. Raeger is going to Jerome to see about a new line to hook onto thr Prcscott-Jcrome, and carry the mail to Clarkdale. At present Clarkdale is served by railroad from Drake on the north and south Santa Fe. On July 1, the Green mail haul ing contract went into effect and since then the Jerome mail has been cut out of the herd here and sent on by motor truck. Service can' be sped up, it is be lieved, by making the entire Verdt valley a part of a motor mail sys tem with Prcscott as the central point. At any rate, the postal of ficial will study the situation, and i! he decides it is feasible to deliver other Verde mail out of the county scat, no doubt there will be a call foi bids on this ndw work. TOIITOjlEST Blaze Located by Prescott As sistant Supervisor; Fire Re ported Sunday on Matazai Range Still Burning A fire thought to be of consider able size yesterday was still burning on the Tonto forest, 60 miles from Camp Verde. i-TKc blaze was located yesterday by Assistant Supervisor Robert Munrofof the Prcscott forest, on the Hualpai Indian reservation near the Aquarius mountains. Super visor Munro ''went as far as Camp Wood to make sure the blaze was not on the Prcscott forest. Another fire east of the Verde, on the Matazai mountains, also was still burning yesterday. ' This blaze was reported to the Prescott forest serv ice office tasf, unday. It is believed to be large, front the fact that it has burned uninterruptedly for the past five days. I Exact location of; the T.onto blaze was made difficult at this o'fficc, due to the fact that readings by the look outs at Spruce mountain and Mt. Union ran in almost parallel lines, providing no cross reading for loca tion. The lookout at Bill Williams mountain was unable to see the fire. GLAD TO BE RIGHT To the Editor of the Journal-Miner: Sir: In justice to 'several people, will you kindly print the following I certainly never meant to convey the impression that Mrs. La Grange was living with both La Grange and Walter Stcinbrook. I don't for a minute believe she was, and do not believe anyone else does. Mrs. La Grange had a good reputation here. I do not care much what is printed of me, but am not willing to be quoted as attacking any person's character. I live nine miics from their place; have never been there, even. It was common talk that La Grange and Stcinbrook were making moonshine there. I thought Stein brook had probably' pulled out for a while, as is sometimes done. As. to 'giving Thompson advice, I made enough: of an ass of myself ever writing him, without writing that. No one could give him any ad vice. Sincerely yours,' RALPH WILLIAMS. Vcnczia, Ariz., July 3, 1921. (If there is any erroneous impres sion in the mind of anyone as a re sult of the accounts above referred to, or any other material appearing in this paper, the Journal-Miner is only too glad to correct it. We do not know what prompted Mr. Wil liams' letter, but are willing every one entitled to it should have a hear ing. Ed.) NON-SUPPORT Non-support was the charge upon which' Frank I Lawhead,' of this'cjty, was- 'arrested yesterday. Complaint against Lawhead was filed with the county attorney's office by Mrs. Lawhead. Her husband has been a driver for the Jerome-Union stage line. Journal-Miner 'Liners Get Results. PRESCOTT AUTO LARGE EIRE ON BOOM TO START IN FEW DAYS -RICHEY Construction of three new ward buildings, with a combined approxi mate capacity of 300 patients, will begin at Whipple Barracks within the next week or ten days, it was stated last night by H. G. Richey, supervising architect in charge of the enlargement program at the post, who returned yesterday from Los Angeles, where contracts for the furnishing of materials for the work were let Only one contract, that for the furnishing of rc-enforcing and metal lath, was let to a Prescott concern, the Arizona Mine Supply company. The contract is a small one, Ritchcy said. Other contracts went to firms in Los Angeles, Portland, El Paso and Tucson. In reply to a question as to when actual construction work would be gin on the three ward busildings, Ritchey said, "Well, just as soon as the railroad can bring the materials from Los Angeles. I don't know how long that will be; maybe a week or ten days. Shipment is being made right away." The three buildings will be of the same type as those now on the ground', two stories high. They will be built on foundations laid when work was going on at the post dur ing the war. They will be ready for occupancy within four months. The work will include provision for light ing, heating and se.werage. Connec tion will be made with jthe central heating plant at the post. The three ward buildings will be erected at a cost of $65,000, Ritchey said. He was unable to state how many more buildings would be erect ed before the program was complet ed. The program will include wards, officers' quarters and other build ings. Between 75 and 100 men will be employed on the construction of the three new wards. They will be em ployed in the open market here.

A notable fact in connec tion with the figures made public is that the United Verde Extensions assessment is just about $3,000,000 greater than that of the United Verde, its larger neighbor. This is explicable by the fact that the extension continued production on a greater1 basis than the United Verde, and hence wilt have to pay more taxes. The figures were returned ap proved to the county assessor by the state tax" commission,- and do not contemplate the physical valuation of the properties. Under the Ari zona law, the production value is figured on the basis of percentages of the gross and net production of mines. Decrease in the production valua tion is offset to a partial extent by an increase in the physical valuation of the smelters at Clarkdale and Cle menceau, according to Mr. Gentry. The production valuation figures are as follows: 1921 United Verde 1920 $34,470,390 $40,095,385 United Verde Extension J37.478.829 $34,561,479 Consolidated Arizona ?1,751,558 $2,153,253 The production value for the three properties for 1921 is $73,700,777 while for 1920 it was $76,710,117. The physical valuation of the mines, according to figures given out at Phoenix by the state tax com mission and published in a Journal Miner night wire from the Associ ated Press, was $88,624,366, divided as follows: United Verde $43,745,521 United Verde Extn 42,209,657 Con. Arizona .. 2,669,179 F OF (From Saturday's Dally) Freedom from marital bonds, at tention for the child from her mother and $35 a month from her husband are the requests made by Rose Perry, complainant in a divorce action filed yesterday. Mrs. Perry alleges failure and neg lect to provide, abandonment and crucltyas reasons why she should be divorced from Wesley Perry. Compelled to work in laundries and without a home provided for her, with her husband seeking the company of his own relatives and leaving her alone, Mrs. Perry claims that married life did not provide her with any jol, whatever. The child, Elmer, aged 2, is in the custody of Mrs. Perry s mother, Airs, lyda Jones, the complaint says, and Mrs. Jones is a proper person to continue caring ,for him. It would be right to provide $35 a month for the child's support, it is claimed, and Perry is able to pay this sum. Nagging, quar reling -and aggravating treatment is complained of by the plaintiff. LEAVENWORTH, Kans.. July 9. Jack Johnson, former world heavy weight pugilistic champion, regained his v freedom today after serving ten months'? of -a one-year sentence in tlie federal prison here for violation of the white slave law. Johnson had two months clipped from his sent ence as a reward for good behavior. He will return to Chicago, his for mer home, next Wednesday, after appearing at receptions here and in Kaifsas City, -Mo., and engaging in an exhibition at Kansas City, Kans. 0 1 SDK M VALUE H FORESTER HE Excellent Summer Camp Sites Around on Forest and Lands Surrounding Prescott That the country surrounding Prescctt, and particularly the Pres cott National forest, abounds in sports affording scenic and practic able camp sites, is the conclusion reached here yesterday by J. D. Jones, assistant forester for the southwestern district of the national forests, after a trip through several sections of the Pcscott forest. For ester Jones is in Prcscott on official business, including an inspection of various phases of work on the forest lands. Excellent camp sites are to be found, Jones pointed out, above the Yacger canyon ranger station, in the vicinity of Jerome, and at Powell Springs. Other camp sites and rec reation grounds exist in plenty, ac cording to information on file at the forest service office here, gathered during a recent -survey of recreation facilities on the Prescott forest, in the Groom Creek and other districts. The best site, Jones states, is that to be found at Powell Springs, where an abundant supply of fresh spring water and plenty of pine shade and cool mountain air are afforded. The camp site in the Jerome district is a dry site, but water is easily acces sible before reaching it. . Value of Camps The growing summer camp trade, and the value of this trade to a com- Jmunity encouraging it, was pointed out .by Jones from statisticsgathered during the past several years, in a special study of outdoor recreation facilities. Jones cited the town of Springervillc, in Greenlee county, as an example. A party of summer campers, he said, is figured as bring ing a return of $12 a day to the community. On this basis, Jones of fered a table showing the increasing trade brought to Springerville from 1912 to the present year. In 1912, 113' automobiles passed through or stopped several days with camping parties. The figures for the follow ing years were: 1913, 194; 1914, 419; 1915. 1,367; 1916, 1,700; 1917, 2,600; 1918, 4,200; 1919, 6,000; 1920, 8,000. Careful records were kept, which showed that between January and April of this year 8,200 automobiles and parties had passed through Springerville" or camped there, each bringing a financial return to the city. Many communities, Jones pointed out, are affording special facilities to attract the camping, or outdoor recreation hotel, visitor. Some com munities furnish electric irons and washing machines, some add shower baths, others arrange camp stoves built of native rock. Statistics as to the desirability of the summer camp visitor were com piled by the Black and Yellow Trails company at Missoula, Mont., where some argued this traffic was harm ful to the city. It was shown that the usual hotel visitor will stay one day, spending about $24. The automo bile camping tourist, it was shown, will stay about three days, attracted by excellent camping .facilities, and spend about $36. The best summer camp, according to Jones' statistics, is to be found at Dodge City, Kans. Pueblo comes second, Albuquerque third, and Flag staff and Springerville fourth. Jones plans to visit the tent city at Pine Dells here and compare it with other summer camp and recrea tion grounds he has inspected. He is vastly in favor of the summer camp as being especially suitable to Prescott and its surrounding country. SELL HUMBOLDT PROPERTY Sale of two lots in Humboldt was recorded here yesterday in a warran ty deed filed in the office of the county recorder. The sale was made by Floyd C. Tcmpleton and Phoebe Caroline Tcmpleton, his wife, to C. B. Hollingcr. The property was de scribed as lots numbered 5 and 6 in block 11 of the Wells addition to the town of Humboldt.
