(Omit ting the fictitious "Special to the Courier). The welfare committee of the legion convention spent the day in conference with Abel Davis of Chicago, chairman of the standing committee on rehabilitation, Colonel R.'C Forbes, director of the veterans bureau, and others, going over the program, of soldier welfare. The famous regulation 57 matter, taken up at the August convention if! Prescott, was successfully carried through at this conference, the ob ject being to define by statute the scope of diagnosis for permanent to tal disability from tuberculosis. Colonel Forbes spoke in praise of Whipple Barracks. E. J. Winslett, national vice-commander of the le gion, who visited Prescott 11 months ago, .sent his regards to the Prescott post which entertained him. The legion may give Arizona rep resentation on the standing commit tee oh rehabilitation. Work for the disabled veterans is shown in the activity of the legion in an effort to get the provisions of the Sweet bill functioning at once. IS ADVANCED TO POST '(rjEROME, Nov: .

IS NEW REPORT! FOR Superior Judge Richard Lamson yesterday recorded the appointment of Mrs. H. B. Wpoldridge, formerly of Jerome,, as court reporter for division 2 of the Yavapai court. Mrs. Wooldridge swung an ef ficient -fountain pen on the smoke damage trial here in August and September, at that time 'as a special reporter for- the United Verde Ex tension Mining company, defendant in the case, .

McKEE-RUSSELL At the home of Mrs. McKee on North Montezuma last evening, there was solemnized the marriage of John R. McKee and Miss Mary H. Rus sell. The members of the families we're present. . Justice of the Peace Charles H. McLane performed the JDURNAL-MINER OFflFOULIS STUKEY WILL LET ILE 2 (From "Wednesday"? Daily) No nearer to Hie solution of the problem of Supervisor C. C. Stukey's double office-holding, the situation yesterday was marked chiefly by the fact that the subject of all these in teresting speculations had returned to town, had learned of his election and was adding his own speculations to those of the angry mob. That he would be the subject of attack on the basis of attempted doubling up on account of his recent refusal to bend the pregnant knee to the hipcracking of some ambitious would-be party dominators, was be lieved to be the certainty to follow any effort of his to obey the man date of the electors of the Miller Valley school district. An attempt to discredit him as supervisor was free ly predicted. 'If- I can serve both the district and the county under the law, I feel I should do it," was about all Stukey had to say when confronted with a couple of questions by the Journal- Miner yesterday. "They wanted . me or they wouldn't have voted for me. I wouldn't go back on the people who elect me." Stukey was elected Saturday by a vote of the school district over Mrs. E. G. Weil, who was running for re-election as a member of the school board. The margin was close seven votes-r-after what was de scribed as a campaign marked by earnest work on both sides. The district lined up very nearly in equal divisions on the proposition of en dorsement of the previous policies of Mrs. Weil. A ruling was said to have been ob tained from the decision-mill of the county attorney's office to the ef fect that the trustee job paying no salary, the supervisor would be per mitted to hold both positions. This is diametrically opposed to an opin ion handed down only last week by the attorney general's office in Phoenix holding that Superior Judge Fred Ingraham of Yuma county was not entitled to receive a school trus teeship at the hands of the electors, and at the same time continue to hold the bench. It is also opposed to certain hold ings of the supreme court in the Campbell-Hunt decision wherein it was laid down that the election of Tom Campbell as governor auto matically vacated his office as state tai. commissioner. Stukey' took no part in the Satur day election nor the work preceding it. He was at -and around Hillside, looking at roads and also inspected the country between the Sandy and the Mohave line, where he said some road work was being done. He indicated yesterday that he had until the first Of the year to file his certificate of election and oath of office and that he might just wait awhile and let the gang worry about it. FIVE STAMPS WORK AT BLUE JOHN MILL Walker District Property Starts Stamps Going; Installations at Davis, Blalock Properties (From Thursday's Daily) .

IIS IKES LABOR SHY Immigration Commissioner to Study Needs of Cotton Indus try to See If It Will Be Neces sary to Import Mexican Labor (Journal-Miner Capital Bureau! PHOENIX, Nov. 2. Whether it will become necessary to again im port Mexican labor from Mexico to aid in harvesting the cotton crops of the state is expected to be defin itely shown as a .result of the final labor survey now being made by Immigration Commissioner P. R. Milnes, who is making a tour ot labor centers in the southern part of the state to ascertain whether or not there is likelihood of sufficient labor being obtainable in the state. Before his departure, Commissioner Milnes said that it appeared to be doubtful whether sufficient labor of this character could be obtained within the borders of the state. While many Mexicans are out of work, due principally to the .closing of the mines, most of them seem in clined to pass up the opportunity of picking cotton at 2 cents per pound, the fixed price being paid by mem bers of the Cotton Growers' associa tion. If it is found impossible to obtain the necessary labor within the state to harvest the cotton crop, the Cot ton Growers' association will doubt less appeal to the authorities at Washington for permission to im port labor from Mexico for the season.

Russell, say they . expect to be sinking on the shaft within 15 or. 20 days. The Franco-American has an ex cellcnt ore showing. ' At the first level carbonate and oxide ore exists, and .at the bottom of the shaft is found chalcopyrite. Approximately 300 feet of laterals have been exca vated.

HUNTERS SAVE HUGE SIS II PESTS KILLED Scope of Work of Biological Sur vey Made Clear in Statement of Records; Mountain Lions in Arizona Most Numerous WASHINGTON, D. C, Nov. 3. Since 1915, when Uncle Sam turned hunter of wild animals that roam the western ranges and prey on the farmer's livestock, he has accumu lated a game bag the like of which was never before witnessed in his tory, according ' to reports to -the biological survey, United States, de partment of agriculture, just made public. By trap and gun the government hunters have killed a total of 156,150 predatory wild animals. That period represents the time of government activity in that kind of work. The result of this labor 'is of incalculable benefit to the farmer and stockman, Listing the predatory animals which go to make up the kill total, the in ventories of the six-year campaign are as follows: 406 bears; 17,842 bob cats and lynxes; 133,604 coyotes; 668 lions, and 3,630 wolves. The total shows the number of scalps taken; it does not include the large number of animals killed by poison, Probably the figures would be doub led if those animals, too, were placed in the list. Many poisoned animals, however, are never found. During the fiscal- year 1921, fig ures show the total number of pre datory animals killed was 27,637, classified as follows: .89 bears, 2,468 bobcats and lynxes, 24,258 coyotes, 128 mountain lions, and 594 wolves. The average destruction by these animals is estimated to be, for each wolf and mountain lion, about $1,000 worth of livestock; each coyote and hohcat. S50 worth; and each stock killing bear, $500 worth. In view of these estimates an idea may be od tninpH nf the tremendous damage averted by the government's skilled hunters. Those figures are averages in some cases, notably that of the Custer wolf, the depredations of in dividual predatory animals have reached much higher figures. The Custer wolf was estimated to have killed at least $25,000 worth of cattle before it was disposed of not long aEo. Arizona and New Mexico account for nearly two-thirds of the total number of mountain lions killed, their totals being 255 and 170, respectively. In- Utah, 71 mountain lions were killed; in Oregon, 43; Colorado, 36; in California, 29; and in Nevada, 24. TO SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 3. Tele graphic advices just received by Gov ernor John U. Calkins of the Fed eral Reserve bank of ban francisco from the under secretary of .the treasury at Washington, D. C, con tain the following interesting an nouncement: "Secretary Mellon today announced that the portrait of Theodore Roose velt will appear for the first time on a covernment security on the denomination of a new issue of treas ury savintrs certificates, which will be placed on sale towards the end of the present calendar year, ine new issue of treasury savings certificates will be a feature of the unified gov ernment savings plan which is now being developed by the secretary of the treasury and the postmaster gen eral, and will be announced later in greater detail.

The securities offered will have a wide popular' appeal, and will be placed on sale throughout the coun try in convenient form.
