the industrial conference, have ex
pressed the opinion that Johnny
Gung'l, of Willcox, will be named
by the board of supervisors of Co
chise county to fill the legislative
vacancy created by the recent rcisg
nation of Dana T. Milner. Milner,
who presented his .resignation De

of personal business which would
prevent his being in attendance at

called for a date early in the new
As a consequence of this law, ir
respective of any further resigna

"Prcscott little realizes the number
of those who require help. I am
sure if the citizens of this community
could but bring home to themselves
the fact that there arc 110 families
in this city requiring help at this'
time, there would be no question but
what immediate attention would be
given." This in a few words sum
med up the situation as expressed
by Mrs. J. T. Richards, chairman of
the associated municipal Christmas
tree and its charity work.
"It is a difficult thing to place
the wants before the public. Wc
want co-operation, financially. The
merchants of Prcscott have come
forward splendidly, but the bulk of
this should not rest upon their shoul
ders. Individuals should donate to
this cause."
Thai concerted action must be
taken, irrespective of the Christmas
work was clearly shown after the
survey of the work had been made
by volunteers. The ministers of Pres
cott and all directly interested in
charity work have lent their efforts
to this cause.
Those having clothes, suitable for
children and grwn-ups should notify
Mrs. J. W. Osburn, telephone No.
Those willing to. contribute to the
Christmas boxes should send their
donations to the chamber of com
merce office, where headquarters
have been established. "That the
work should be carried on aside from
the Christmas time, is my candid
opinion," stated the chairman yester
day. "This will help, but other ac
tion must be forthcoming."
Subscription lists are to be had,
aside from the chamber of commerce
office, at Robinson's, May's, the Pal
ace, the Owl, Scholey's, Antler's and
the Elks' club.

A divorce decree was granted by
Judge Richard Lamson in division
two of the superior court yesterday
to Mrs. Susan Elizabeth McHcnry
from John McHcnry, former catcher
for the Jerome city baseball team.
The prayer of the plaintiff that she
be permitted to resume her maiden
name. Susan Elizabeth Scott, was
granted in' the decree.
The decree was granted on grounds
of desertion, the plaintiff testifying
that shortly after their marriage her
husband had apparently tired of her,
and left her. Mrs. Ollic L. Scott,
mother of the plaintiff, also testified.
The defendant failed to appear in
court to answer summons duly serv
ed. Costs and attorney's fees were
granted the plaintiff, who was reprc
sented by Norman F. Wykoff, of

Basil Wales, supervisor, said yester
day. He' has replied that, according
to the instructions received by him
from Washington, notes will not be
The information that notes would
be acceptable is contained in a com
munication from the Arizona Cattle
Growers' association, which com
munication says: .
"In telegraphic information just re
ceived from Senator Ashurst, it is
stated that Senator Ashurst, Reprc.
sentative Hayden, Governor Thomas
E. Campbell and Mr. Dwight B.
Heard had an extended interview
with the secretary of agriculture on
this matter, pointing out that many
honest, industrious cattlemen in Ari
zona, through no fault of their own,
were not in position to pay these
fees at this time and unless the fees
were extended, these men would be
"Rather than enacting further leg
islation in this matter the secretary
of agriculture has kindly issued in
structions to the various forest su
pervisors, directing them to accept
promissory notes from those permit

unable to pay the grazing fees, m all
cases where the good faith of the
permittee was evident.

sociation requests interested cattle

said yesterday, is cancelled by' the

' PHOENIX, Dec. 20. Returning
from the governors' conference at
Charleston, S. C, and the national
capital, where he appeared before
congress to urge the adoption of a
comprehensive national reclamation
policy and held conferences with
various members of the tariff com
mittee looking to the securing of an
adequate protective tariff on long
staple cotton and other Arizona pro
ducts, Governor Thomas E. Camp
bell arrived in Phoenix this morning.
As a result of representations
made by the governors, following
the Charleston conference, it is be
lieved by Governor Campbell that a
national reclamation bill will prob
ably be enacted at the present ses
sion of congress.
Governor Campbell is also of the
opinion that a federal commission
will be appointed to handle the Colo
rado river basin project.
Contract to provide the county
highway commission with one Dodge
commercial screen car yesterday was
awarded by the commission to L. C.
Dicus of Jerome. This car . will re
place an Olds touring car, which wilL
be advertised for sale by the com
mission in the near future.
Complaints of high prices in Pres
cott have no basis in schedules of
holiday commodities here, it is shown
in a comparison made yesterday by
Henry Hartin with current prices be
ing asked in southern California. Es
pecially is this true of rates asked
for birds for the Christmas table.
Los Angeles dealers, in published
advertisements, are asking 65 cents a
pound for turkeys, while .the price
asked by the Prescott meat markets
is only 45 cents. This relativity is
maintained bv local Einsteins in
other commodities.

Christmas trees, pine boughs and
snow effects last night gave a merry
holiday atmosphere to uie Veterans
of Foreign Wars Christmas dance at
the Frolic, attended by a large crowd.
In charge of William J. Baker, the
dance was a huge and gay success.
The proceeds will be used for Christ
mas work among disabled ex-service
men in Prescott. N. A. Urenn was
assistant manager of the affair, A.
C. Schneider floor-manager, and W.
D. Hooper, commander of Buckey
O'Neill post, had charge of the
fountain. Scidel's orchestra furnished
the music.
(From Thursday's Daily)
Work preliminary to resumption
of operations at the famous Crown
King gold mine, which for several
years has been inoperative, due to
litigation, was begun at Crown King
this week. D. M. Locey, one of the
best known mining men of this
county, where he formerly was en
gaged in mining, yesterday was at
Crown King supervising the prelimi
naries. With him is ,a Chinese cook
and an office man. A crew made up
mostly of men formerly in his cm
ploy has been organized, and work of
rcparing bunk hous.es and other
buildings at the mine is under way.
Announcement of intended resump
tion of operations at the Crown
King, and at the Wildflower and Old
Tiger mines, was made this week in
an exclusive Journal-Miner story to
the effect that Locey had taken over
these three mines, known as the
Murphy group.
Until resumption of mining at the
properties, roads and buildings will
be put into shape. Re-opening of
the mines is considered among the
most hopeful indications of a general
resumption of mining activity. In
dications are that several mines in
the Walker district will sooner or
later be operating on a productive
scale. Among these arc the Sheldon
and the Big Dome, the latter now
being cxploied.

allowed counsel for the Prescott
Lumber company to file an amended
complaint in the case of the com
pany against J. B. Johnson, which,
as will be recalled from a rccent jpx
clusive Journal-Miner story, presents
the strange phenomenon of a law-
suit to stop a law-suit.
Johnson, through his counsel, Rus
sell & Stack, is suing to recover
value of houses removed from the
Kline sanitarium, while the Prescott
Lumber company, through Attorney
Howard Cornick, is suing to prevent

words with which W. Curtis Miller,

the remarkable record made by Camp
Verde in the percentage of high
school pupils to the total school's at
tendance of the district.
A visit to the Camp Verde county
school district by Superintendent
Miller revealed the iact that out of
an enrollment of 1 38, pupils, '38' were
doing regular high school work. This,
he pointed out yesterday, is almost
30 per cent.
Of all the records available for a
school or district employing more

Southern California forest service
officials want 100,000 goats to graze
on the ranges of the Angeles forest.
A communication to this effect was
received here yesterday by H. Basil

from Supervisor Charleton of Los
Angeles, in charge of the Angeles
Enlightened self-interest actuates
Supervisor Charleton, he confesses.
Cropping by goats of the abundant
browse and brush on the Angeles
ranges wiil, in addition to fattening
the goats, considerably reduce the
fire hazard on those ranges. This
is consummation devoutly to be wish
ed, for the Angeles forest has estab
lished a history of annual forest
fires, especially in the Santa Monica
Canyon; where every year the Los
Angeles newspapers find dramatic
stories of fire-fighting to headline.
The proposition is looked on fav
orably tjy Supervisor Wales, who
states 'that range conditions for goats
on the Angeles forest are exception
ally good.
"Conditions on the California - for
est arc different than on the Prcs
cott ranges," he said yesterday. M,'Af
ready the Prescott forest is well
utilized by cattle. ,Qji account of
watershed conditions, it would be
much better that we have no goats
oil our forest. Only one band now
is on the" forest, but I have received
a number of applications for permits
to graze more goat herds. It would
be better for all were the herders to
take their animals to the California
forest." ' -
