WEEKLY JOURNAL-MINER PAGE FIVE Sill S KIT! District Schools in Crown 'King, Blue Bell, and Entire Mayer Region Found to be in Good Shape; Supervisor's Report. Excellent school conditions exist in the Mayer and Crown King regions, according to a report by W. Curtis Miller, supervisor of attendance in Yavapai district schools. The report says: The old school house in the Cherry district has been torn down, and with the addition of a little new lumber a new building has been erected, and is a credit to the district. It is sit uated across the road from they site of the old school and is in a much better location. All the pupils but two arc boys, a condition not often found iu the county. About as many pupils as attended there during the 'boom days were found at the Crown King school. When the train arrived, it seemed that all the people of the district were awaiting its arrival. On in quiry it was found that mining is in a healthy condition. Much work is being done, and there is not a great deal of "boom" talk. Most of the work is being done on leased prop erty from which profits are being realized, although some arc working their own claims. Even though the De Soto mine is being operated only by a few men, there arc enough pupils to keep the school going at Middleton, and others arc expected to conic into the district soon. It was not thought that the Blue Bell district could support a school, and no provision had been made to reorganize the district. Yet there an accommodation school is being kept' hp which is one of the largest rural schools in the county. The camp is a busy one and has well over a hun dred men on the payroll. The Bumblebee school is handi capped through lack of a suitable place to hold school, as their school building burned down lsat year. By using the dining' room of the Bumble- j bee Jiotcl, through the courtesy of V. Jeff Martin, the proprietor, they I are getting along. It is hoped to have a more suitable building before the cold weather sets in. Very little work is being done around Stoddard, and the ' school there is about as small as the law will allow, but because of the recent i gold strike in that vicinity there is likely soon to be an increase in the district's population. At both Stod dard an'd Blue Bell the companies make every concession toward fur nished room and board for the teach ers, which makes these places desir able. A large cnrollmcst with 14 pupils doing advanced work under Principal Johnathan Booth was found at Mayer. Many families have moved into Mayer for the winter in order to place their children in school there, with the result that every house is taken. Provision is being made for a room for another teacher, as one room now has 38 pupils, and another 36. Several families having moved away from the Rim Rock district, the schopl is small; but other families arc now moving in, and there is no doubt that this district will be able to hold its schobl. At Yaba the school iswcll attend ed and good work is being done. The class of work done in all the schools visited is excellent. In all districts, every pupil of compulsory school age is attending school. One excel lent feature of all the schools visited, both in the Verde and Mayer dis tricts, is that practically every boy and girl who finished the eighth grade last year, is cither attending a regular high school or is doing ad vanced grade work at home or in one of the district schools. RESIDENTS TO BUILD SCHOOL Granite Mountain People. Will Put Up a New Structure to Replace that Burned' Sunday; Supervisors Grant Materials. THREE DATS OF T R Ffll The Granite Mquntain district will not be long without a school. Un daunted by the destruction of the dis trict school building by fire Sunday, the district board of trustees immed iately set to w'ork to secure construc tion of new quarters. Interviews with the county school superintendent and the board of supervisors resulted in the announcement yesterday that the new building will probably be completed within the next 10 days. A special dispensation was secured from the board of supervisors grant ing an appropriation from the gen eral fund with which to buy lumber and materials, and the residents of the district will donate their labor and during the. next week proceed to put up the new building them selves. Seven or eight husky men wielding hammer and saw will soon have a brand-new school house where today there are only the charred re mains of an old one. About $300 was appropriated for materials. More than half of the school equipment, including desks and books, were saved from the fire by the timely arrival of several Sunday excursionists in the vicinity, so that the cost of replacing those lost will be comparatively small. The new building will contain a school room to house about 15 pu pils, and an adjoining apartment for the teacher, George Gammill, and his family. R Fair Association Concludes Deal to Secure Daily Program of 28 Pieces to be Set off on Track Each Day of Festival. M'lRCBIE TO TIKE DP ISSUE OF RIGHT TO Ml LICENSE A question raised recently as to the status of Robert McMurchie as a licensed practitipner of the law, will he taken up next Monday by the state supreme court The proceed ings bringing the matter to the at tention of the state's highest tribunal were initiated by Homer R. Wood of Prcscolt, and arc in the nature of a move to disbar the local attorney. Mr. McMurch:?, who is a candi date on the democratic ticket for county attorney, alluded to the at tacks upon him, in his campaign speech Wednesday night. He told the Journal-Miner several days ago that he expeced at that time to ap pear before the supreme court and move to continue the hearing in order that he might obtain depositions in support of his defense against the al leged disbarment proceedings. In brief, the petition of Mr. Wood recites that Mr. McMurchie has no right to practice law in Arizona be cause he was disbarred in the state of Washington in 1915. After that proceeding, it is alleged, he removed to Arizona and obtained his certifi cate to practice on the basis of his previous South Dakota license, but witliQiit disclosing the fact to the Washington disbarment. IS Killing game out of season is a practice whicji must cease in Arizona, according to a pronouncement of State Game Warden Joe V. .Pro chaska, one of whose deputies in the Verde district arrested E. H. Graves between Cottonwood and Thomp son's Crossing on Sundaj. Deputized by the state game war den on complaint of Verde residents that quail were being killed out of season, James Fcustermaker of Se dona began to look into tilings. He found Graves as described, with three birds hi possession. Graves was as sessed the statutory fine of $10 per bird, or $30. MIL FINE D TO CITY PENALTY Buster Wilkinson of the Star Cleaners, yesterday walked out of the sheriff's office after handing George Payne a ?5 bill, and went over to crank up his Ford delivery wagon. "I've got ten days to press, clean and deliver suits in." he said, cheerfully. Then he looked glum again. He was thinking about that $5. Just as if it wasn't enough for Police Judge Robinson to soak him $50 and 10 days for. pulling off a little race with his partner, Bill Craig (who also got fifty-and-tcn), the unsympathetic kangaroo court had hauled him up and fined him $5 before he had been in jail an hour- "Better take a receipt for that five, Buster," said Deputy Roland Moshcr, before he left the office, "or else they'll stick ynu again when you come back." According to an arrangement granted by the city magistrate, Craig will serve his ten days first, while Wilkinson lends to the business in which the two young men are part ners. Then Buster will serve his ten days, and all will be- over but the memory of those fifties. The two young men were arrested Friday night when they were found staging a speed contest on East Wil lis street. Daylight fireworks in which will be included a number of dazzling pyrotechnical displays and set-pieces, will for the first time in the history of the Northern Arizona State fair be shown at the tenth annual fair this month, it was announced at fair association headquarters yesterday.

I TO SEND ARIZONA YOUTH TO COLLEGE The Boolas will git ya if ya don't watch out! With this slogan from the campus ot Old Eh, a committee of Yavaoai county laic men are looking lor a young fellow who can come up to certain requirements. If he can, the Yale Alumni Association of Arizona has $1,500 which says he can go to Yale for, four years. The matter was talked over at a dinner of the Yavapai county branch of the state Yale Alumni association at the Yavapai club last night, and a committee appointed to inquire into the possible presence in the county of candidates for this honor. "Raising the money was easy," committee members said last night; "but finding the, student is another matter." The reason is that the com mittee is seeking a graduate of an Arizona high school who combines an agreeable personality with probity, ability with perseverance, and athletic with scholarly qualifications. The young 'man selected by the state association will be sent to Yale with $600 in his pocket for the fiscal year, and will receive $300 each of the succeeding three years. But he must prove himself before the com mittee will choose him. Applicants may learn details of the plan from Herndon J. Norris, at the law offices of Norris & Norris.

Cerl, and Chuck Dunning; The dinner was held from 7 until 9 o'clock, and 4 was well attended by Yale men of the county. Everyone made a talk, and there was ensemble singing in which "Boola-boola" was not the least stirring chorus. CAMPBELL TO BE HERE 8GT. . H TO SPEI Governor Campbell and the party of republican candidates accompany ing him on a campaign of the state will reach Prcscott the evening of October 26, according to a tentative itinerary issued by the republican state central committee. At present, these speakers are working their way eastward along the Santa Fe main line toward Navajo and Apache coun ties. They have just completed one swing of the circle starting at Phoe nix and taking in the towns along the Parker cut-off, where they turned north into Mohave and Coconino counties. Tin's four took them to Seligman and Ash Fork iii this county, and Williams and Flagstaff on October 4. The governor's party includes: James H. McClintock, for the U. S. senate. Mrs. Emma M.

At noon they are at Cordcs; then Blue Bell at 1 o'clock, Mayer at 2 o'clock, for a meeting; at 4 o'clock they hold a meeting at Humboldt, and an hour and a half later, at Dewey. Prescott is down for a' night meet ing. The party leaves here at 7 o'clock the next morning for the Verde valley by way of Cherry, and j after covering all of the Verde towns they turn south to Skull Vallcj-, Hill side, Kirklaud, Congress- Junction and Wickcnburg and expect to reach Phoenix Sunday, October 29.

Independently of the main party, Judge Otis Baughn, candidate for the .supreme court; Ed Stephens; running for the tax commission, and Jack White, running for re-election as mine inspector, are conducting their canvasses throughout the state. DEMOS SHARE THE BALL WITH SEIIJSHURST Although still at loss, for, a chair man, and rather bewildered by the enthusiastic absence of any world shaking rush to put up the 5 per cent assessments on the part of the can didates, the democratic party has got its campaign under way. A meeting of democratic county aspirants is re ported from Crown King, and to night, (Senator Ashurst, Judge Ross and J. W. Murphy will lead a meet ing at the Odd Fellows hall. Lack of funds has militated against the hiring of a hall for the county candidates, but these aspirants will .recently by a lightning bolt.

The sur- CUTTING MILE OFF TIP Jl FOR MARICOPA Three or four months more work will be 'necessary to carry the new Yavapai-Maricopa county line to the Mazatzals and complete the survey of what the Maricopa county people contend is the true border. F. B. Jacobs, who has been sur veying and engineering, building roads and railways and laying out towns and ranches and counties and cities in Arizona since 1886 is now in charge of the crew, in the place of O. C. Thompson, who was killed QUARREL El S IN LOGAL JAIL senator rises to address the home town crowd on the subject of his re turn to Washington this year as senior Arizona senator. The party will proceed later to Je rome to open the fireworks in the Verde valley. Reports of the activities thus far of the democratic candidates arc marked by a peculiar lack of defini tion in the local so-called democratic press, which, in its stories of the travels of the party, refers to not a single candidate by name. Notices Jiavc been mailed by Presi dent Harry Heap of the Yavapai County Chamber of Commerce call ing the' attention of members to the dinner meeting which will be held Thursday evening at 8. o'clock in the banquet hall of the owl. Besides business of importance which will come before this meeting, an excellent program is being ar ranged with the possibility of one or two stunts out of the ordinary. In order that sufficient time be given the Owl, all members and their guests who expect to ataend, must notify the chamber of commerce of fice not later than today. An excel lent menu will be served. vey party is now working across the Hlassayampa, and Jacobs has made his home ranch the temporary base. The survey started at the western end of the line and is proceeding cast. Instead of running courses as the surveyors did in 1886 when the line was established, Jacobs is trian gulating from coast and geodetic sur vey monuments. These primary bases were located astronomically, and, like the observations by which j Professor Updegraff determined the latitude of a pier near Wickenburg, are found by calculating the positions of the stars. According to Mr. Jacobs, the line will not cut the predicted mile and a half strip off Yavapai county! Only labout a mile will be trimmed from the southern end of this county. At the point where it passes closest to the monument 'established by Prof. Updegraff, the line is about 1,100 feet south. Maricopa county obtained a su preme court order for the survey on the showing 'made by the stellar ob servations, proving that the astrono mical thirty-fourth parallel of latitude was located somewnat to tnc norm of the point where- by. common usage for 40 years, that parallel had been established on the earth.

Robinson upon his return from an inspection trip to the damsitc. The forms are barely go ing up just ahead of the concrete mixers, being built as the pouring ad vances. , That the work will continue to go forward without interruption, was the opinion of the city manager. Exca vation will be completed within' three days. Sands and gravel bins arc full and a sufficient supply of cement is I on hand. LOCAL GIRLS ENROLL A number of Prescott and Yavapai county girls are enrolled for the academic course at the Northern Ari zona State Normal school at Flag staff, it was reported here yesterday upon her return from the north by Mrs. Alice Archambcau, assistant county superintendent of schools.

RETURN TO PHOENIX W. S. Goldsworthy of Phoenix, brother-in-law of Norman Hoffman of this city, yesterday returned to the capital after a short stay here. Mr. A dispute with a friend, a knife flashed. and wielded, a suddeii hasty disappearance. Such was chapter one in a little melodrama in which Felipe Chavez, ' 32, of Jerome, ' played the part of the villain. Now, villains are not supposed to "come back" but Chavez did. Not in the figurative, but the literal sense, he came back to Jerome; and" therein lay the beginnings of further chap ters in his story. In the county jail, he is thinking over the few chapters that have al ready transpired, and guessing as to the probable denouncement of those which arc yet to bq written. ' Chavez' alleged knife - wielding, which Is said to have resulted in a nasty cut across his opponent's ab domen, was followed, as stated, by his disappearance from and return to Jerome. Upon his return hc was promptly picked up by Chief of Po lice J. G. Crowley and lodged in. the Jerome jail. Chapter Three At a pre'iminary hearing in the Jerome court, probable cause was found for holding Chavez, and hc was bound over to the county superior court under bond ct ?1,500. Yesterday afternoon he was brought tq town by Deputy Sheriff Roland M'osher, And there, for the present, the matter rests. Trial in the superior court will re veal the conclusion of his nield-drama.
