MARCH 81, 1910 NUMBER 51 NEWS OF THE TERRITORY. Yuma strawberries are now on the mriPt thp first in that vicinity hav ing been supplied from the ranch of ; S. P. Huss. William Schaefer, an old time pros pector about seventy years of age, died last week at Douglas, as the re sult of a stroke of apoplexy. K. J. Wackford was arrested at Kelvin last week and fined $300 for peddling wouthout a license. He will appeal to the district court and fight the case. Ross Rogers, for the past twenty years a resident of Safford and the Gila valley, died last week at the age of sixty year.-, death resulting from a complication of diseases. Last week a rich strick of sulphide ore was encountered in the Denn shaft at Bisbee. The ore is v?ry high grade and indications point to the discovery of an important ore body. By the end of March the new Ari zona Commercial railroad will be com pleted to the point where the right of way cuts the Superior & Boston prop erty, little more than a quarter of a mile from the end of the line. The mountain resort at duff's ranch at the foot of the Grahams will open for the present season early in May. Many improvements are being made at the resort as well as on the main valley road leading to it. The property of the Arizona E'ec tric Telephone company to Apache and Navajo counties, recently taken over by the Arizona Overland Tele phone -company, will be formally transferred to the new concern April first. In a lit of despondency last week Fred Haas of Douglas attempted suicide by cutting his throat with a pen knife. Fortunately the injuries which he inflicted on himself were very slight and he is little the worse for his experience. A hen owned by M. Clymen, a Douglas rancher, has broken all pre vious records bv laying an egg which weighs a quarter of a pound and measures eight inches in circumfer ence around from end to end and six inches around the smaller way. The niii.-li..st triD ever made be tween Prescott and Humboldt in any sort of conveyance was made last week by Ray Vyne on his two cylin-! der Curtis motor cycle . He covered the distance of eighteen miles over geeep'a'Pg'bad roads in exactly 58: minutes. It was decided last week to bond the Layton school district in Graham j county for a new school building to cost 3,000. The buildiug is to be constructed of cement brick, to con tain four large class rooms, and is to be completed tor the opening of the fall term of school. In order to place on exhibition tte constantly increasing mineral exhibit, the Globe chamber of commerce bas installed three new sections to the mineral cat.inet at the chamber head quarters and as the result, the pres ent exhibition can be very nearly doubled with the additional cabinet space . The preliminary survey of the Buckeye road out from Phoenix has been completed. A 380-acre tract of sage brush land near Glendale, Maricopa county, has been sold for $90 per acre. Mrs. Agnes O'Brien Moore, who has owned the controlling interest in the Tucson Citizen for years, has gone to Los Angeles to take up per manent residence. The Citizen has passed into new hands. The final connections are being made with the recently installed pump at the sixth level of the Superior & Boston mine says the Globe Belt. The steam and water columns are hv-.ncr nut in from the Duroo to the Mr. Bicknell's Resignation. It became known last week that Chairman M. O. Bicknell of the Ari zona railway commission had tendered his resignation to Governor Sloan and that it was accepted by the governor two days later. The friends of Mr. Bicknell, how ever, had known for a month that he would probably shortly sever his relations with the committee to irrcnt thp imnortant Dosition of Forestry Movement. is a concerted plan at the There present time to induce the ranchers j alono- the E.oosevelt road between Mesa and the Eastern canal to plant some desirable shade trees, such as eucalptus or pepper, on either side of the road. The; results of such move if successfully carried out are obvi ous. The Roosevelt road for a long time will be an important thorough fare.

A number of Pittsburg capitalists have associated themselves for the purpose of developing and exploit ing a hydro-electric power and irriga tion project on the Bill Williams Pork, which forms the dividing line between Yuma and Mohave counties in western Arizona. The enterprise it is estimated will require an in vestment of approximately $3,000, 000, for the raising of which the pro moters have practically completed their plans. The management of the Live Oak Development company is about to be nn sinking its vertical shaft from its present depth oi 235 feet to the 400 foot point, where a level will be established and the co-ordinate system of development by means of drifts and raises will be carried on, as has already been done on the 300-foot level. The bottom of the vertical Bhaft at its present depth is in good ore, and from all indications the de velopment work so far has been done at the upper extremity of the ore body, so that exploratory work at greater depth may be expected to de velop a much greater acreage man has been indicated by the drifting on the 300-foot level.

The board of directors of the com pany were authorized and directed to offer the following named compan ies the following respective amounts of the capital stock of the Anaconda Copper Mining company in exchange for all of the properties ana assets of every kind owned or possessed by ' cui-Vi rnrnnrntions: To the Boston & Montana Consoli dated Copper & Silver Mining com pany, 1,200,000 shares.

Bicknell, Chairman, Ariz., Railway Commission, Phoenix, Ariz. Mr. Dear Mr. Bicknell Your letter tendering your resignation as a mem ber of the Arizona railway commission to take effect April 1st, has been received. In accepting your resignation 1 wish to express my appreciation ior tne very faithful and efficient service you have rendered to the territory as a member of the commission and my regret that these services may not be continued during my administration. Trusting you may find the position with the Script Bureau a pleasant one and wishing you the utmost suc cess in your new field of activity, I remain, Sincerely yours, (Signed) Richard E. Sloan, Goyernor of Arizona. The news that Mr. Bicknell had ten dered his resignation developed curi osity as to who would le bis successor. Nothing was divulged at the capital as to the governor's probable action or plans, but it has 1 n learned from confidential though u official sources tnat the name of E. S. DePass is un der consideration as the probable suc- ceaeor to Mr. Bicknell If the tender should come to him it wi"l be in the way of a well merited promotion. Mr. DePass has served tha i-rnnmisiiiin in the capacity of ni. irir pver since its organization, .ir copr sinrp the office of rate clerk has been filled. the trees will be easily attended to as the planting will be done along the i:itr-ra . The disposition ot tne ranchers living on the north side of the road has not been determined, but it is presumed that a part of them at least would be willing to come in on the proposition. They will doubtless realize the effect it would have on increasing the value of their lands as well as making the Roosevelt road through the irrigated district a boulevard. . It is known that the government officials are heartily in favor of the plan and have given it their endorse ment. There is probably no other automobile road in the United States over which more distinguished men have passed than that between here and the dam. The planting of trees rill make an impression that will be one of gratitude to those who travel that way. Phoenix Republican. U. S. Geological Survey Report Adverse to San Carlos Damsite. Advices have been received from Washington to the effect that the board of engineers from the L'nited States geological survey which was designated by the secretary of the interior some time ago to investigate the data covering the San Carlos reservoir site has completed its work and has rendered a report to the secretary setting forth its conclu sions. While the details of the re port will not, of course be made pub lic until given out by the secretary, it was stated that the report is not favorable to the theory that the San Carlos site Is au excellent one; the chief objections to it by the engin eers being, (1) that the bedrock con ditions are not good, and (2) that the cost of constructing a dam at this point would be too great in propor tion to the quantity of water which could be made available for any irri gation system under the reservoir. j If this news is authentic and there . is no reason to doubt it the logical i conclusion is that the secretary of 1 the Interior will, at an early day, ap prove the application of the Arizona Eastern railway for a right-of-way j through the Gila canyon which will , assure the immediate construction of this line. It comes as uo surprise that the engineers of the geological survey , have made the findings as reported. The engineers of the reclamation 1 service reached conclusions to the same effect loner ago. It is known, however, that before the officers ot the geological survey took up the In vestigation they were of the opinion that'the San Carlos site was feasible and more or less attractive. Their findings to the contrary after investi gation confirms the soundness of the conclusions reached by the reclama tion engineers in the first instance.

It was then decided to start at the top, so to speak, by tem porarily organizing a central union. To permanently organize such a cen tral union, Ave local unions must be formed each with not less than six members. It is believed that two or three more locals will be organized and that within a short time the five will be complete. After that dele gates from the locals will regularly organize the central union. The move toward central union was first started last week, when James Iyy presided over a meeting of f-j.-mt.rc in MeU-zer s hall. It is ex pected that further progress will be made at the next meeting. Phoenix Exchange. Saved A Soldier's Life. Facing death from shot and shell in the civil war was more agreeable to J. A.

Southwestern May Have Coast Outlet. A gentleman who arrived in Bisbee from Denver states that on the train with him was Stiles Lantry, a mem ber of the well known railroad con tracting firm, Lantr3 Brothers. This is the concern which built the North and South railway and has done most of the work for the Santa Fe in the west. Mr. Lantry stated that be was on the way to Tucson and that his con cern had the contract for the con struction of a railroad to Port Lobes on the Gulf of California from Silver Bell. This is the road which was plauned by Frank Murphy of the Santa Fe and will give Tucson a close outlet on the Gulf of California. If, as has been stated, the El Pa-o & Southwestern builds into Tucson, it would require but a few miles of track laying to make connection witii this road from Silver Bell to Port Lobos and thus the Southwestern would have a tide water outlet on the Pacific coast. It is stated on good authority that the Silver Bell Port Lobos road wili also make connection with Phoenix. Bisbee Review. Genera!
