HAYDEN, ARIZ., Aug. 15.—The
Mill and Smelter teams crossed bats
on the local diamond today in what
was not the best exhibition we have
seen of late, but there was the cus
tomary ninth inning excitement when
it looked as if the Smelterites would
make a garrison finish and turn de
feat into victory. However, such
was not to be and when the third
Smelter slugger went down in the
ninth the score stood five to four in
the Mill’s favor.
In the Mill’s half of the first frame
Wilde hit safe and was followed by
Duddy who had like success, ad
vancing Wilde to third. Powell re
ceived a free pass filling the bases,
and Zamloch sent a long fly to
center for a safety, scoring Wilde
and Duddy. Bauer grounded out to
third and Zabloch was tagged out
off second, retiring the side. After
this first inning Stevens, tossing for
the Smelterites, settled down to busi
ness and kept the hits well scat
tered. There were goose-eggs for all
until loose work work by the Smelter
team in the fourth netted two more
for the Mill. In this inning Zamloch
was first up and— went to first on
being hit by a pitched ball, and a
moment later stole second. Bauer
followed with a grounder to second
and as the ball was played to third
to catch Zamloch it went through
Lorenson, permitting Zamloch to
score. Later Bauer came home on a
grounder from to'-shortr
JTtVC-if —followed some fast wofk on
both sides with blanks for both until
the seventh when Tom Pierce, at
the Smelter team, pulled the sensa
tion of the day by flying over left
field fence for a homer with Carnes
on, making the first tally for the
ore puddlers. In the eighth Toner
was tapped a little more freely than
usual, resulting in another score for
the Smelter when Whalen went out
on a long fly to left and Stadelll
scored from third on the throw-in. In
the same inning a little loose work of
the Smelter boys presenting two
passed balls, permitted Powell to
reach home. The Smelter boys were
first up in the ninth and after
Carnes had gone out Pierce made a
beautiful hit right for two sacks.
Lorenson fanned. A1 Miller came up
hitting for Duncan and sent a
grounder between first and second
which was fielded by Van. Toner
had stepped to cover first, but Van
threw' wild allowing Pierce to score
and Miller to reach second. This
was all, however, as Ramey, the next
pinch hitter batting for Stevens,
fanned beautifully and the fun was

’ ANOTHER GAME
’ HAYDEN, ARIZ,, Aug. 18.—It was
! beastly unsatisfactory—that score of
’ six to four in favor of the Mines —
i at least as far as local fans were
concerned, but there was plenty
of ‘pep” and a good supply of
* excitement was on tap throughout.
1 The 'visitors were first at bat and
l after Scanlon had fanned and Hes
. ter ha«l gone out on a fly to left,
Demaggle came up and flew to left
1 for a safe one and soon after, with
i characteristic robbery, stole second.
3 Gay received a free pass and a mo
t men! later participated in a double
steal, taking second when Demaggio
advanced to third. Ramage also

WHY THE DELAY?
The traveling public is still waiting for the bridge Kelvin.
How long are we going to have to fight this time for one of the
immediate reliefs that is absolutely necessary? The bond issue
has been made and so far as the taxpayers can see, there is no
reason why the bridge should not be built. How about the supervisors
watching these little things? Simply because the money has been
appropriated by the taxpayers is no reason for relinquishing the
all watching eye they supposed to have on the affairs of this
country. Get busy you supervisors and county engineer and see
that the work is started in a business-like manner and pushed through
to completion so that the people can go and come across the river
without having to swim.
Claims West Os Ray
Con . To Be Developed
A new mining company known
the Ray Extension Copper Co., was
formed at Ray the past week with
the purpose of taking over and de
veloping the Campbell and Cittidini
property which lies due west of and
adjoining the Ray Con. holdings.
A meeting of those interested was
held last night for the purpose of
electing’a board of directors for the
The property above mentioned is In
a primary zone of copper in shist for
mation and bids fair to become one
of the leading producers of this dis
The main showing is on a cross fault
which cuts the shist at right angles
and Indicates a vein of high grade ore
that will pay from the grass roots.
It is the intention of the company
to sink on this vein to a depth of 500
two sacks scoring ''Denutggio and
Gay. Mahoney walked and then
Pendleton sent a hot one to short-'
for a safety scoring Ramage. Brom
ley then went out, retiring the side
with three tallies to the good. In
this same inning the Mill boys got
busy and managed to tie the score
of their adversaries. Galena was
first up and walked. Wilde flew to
center for a two-bagger, scoring Ga
lena ftom first. Daddy hit safe to
short and Wilde crossed the plate.
Powell flew out to center but Zam
lcch grounded safe to left advancing
Daddy from first to third. Cox then
flew out to Hester and Duddy
scored on the throw-in. This play
was the signal for a general wrangle
in which the Ray boys claimed that
Duddy should have been out for his
failure to start from third after the
ball had reached Hester’s hands.
Naturally the umpire stood by his
decision which so angered Bromley,
tossing for the Miners, that he gave
McGilvray a vigorous shove from the
rear. Mac did not seem to approve
of this conduct and gently placed
Mr. Bromley on the bench for the
rest of the engagement, Glavenich
succeeding him on the mound. Van
was next at bat and went cut retir
ing the side with the score tied.
The next excitement came in the
third when the Mighty Ramage
swatted the sphere all the way over
centerfield fence onto the roof of
one of the cottages on the hill and
leisurely took four sacks. There fol
lowed some fast work on both sides
and plenty of goose-eggs for all un
til Mahoney came up in the sixth
with two down and slammed the ball
against centerfield fence for three.
Pendleton followed with a two-sacker
to left scoring Mahoney. Glavenich
fanned. In this same frame Wa
chob sent a hot grounder to left for
to scoring Cox, who had hit safe to
short a few minutes earlier. In the
seventh, Scanlon walked, advanced to
third on Hester’s sacrifice and scored
when Demaggio hit to left for two.
In the eighth, chances looked pret
ty good for the Mill boys to tie the
score again, when with but one out,
Van hit safe to center and Wachob
followed with a two-bagger to the
same locality. Gibson then came up
as a pinch hitter batting for Dent
and at the same time, Driscoll re
placed Glavenich on the mound for
(he miners. All our fandom held its
breath as our favorite pinch-hitter
took his position by the piate but
HE FANNED and great was the wail
that rent the air. Galena then walked
filling, the bases and there was still
hope but Wilde went out on a fly
to third with nothing accompished.
Toner pitched for the locals in the
ninth but there were no develop
ments on either side and the contest
closed six to four in favor of the

TWO MILLION POUNDS
COPPER IN TEN DAYS
JEROME, ARIZ., Aug. 24.—1 n a run
of 10 days duration the new smelter
of the United Verde Copper com
pany, at Clarkdale, produced 2,000,000
pounds of bullion. It was not work
ing to its full capacity at that. All
parts of the smelter have now been
tested, however, and production will
soon be up to the limit.
A full carload of ore is now being
shipped each day from the United
Verde Extension mine to the Douglas
smelter of the Copper Queen com
pany. This rate of production is to
be continued indefinitely. Much of
the ore now handled runs as high as
50 per cent in copper content. All of
it comes from the 1200-foot level.
Nothing has been done toward ex
tracting the rich ore recently opened
on the 1400-foot level.

Thursday morning. He retired Wed
nesday night, apparently in his usual
health, and died of heart failure in
the course of the night. He was about

$1.28722 On SIOO
FLORENCE, ARIZ., Aug. 20.—Pinal
county’s tax rate has been fixed by
the board of supervisors at $.74722
on each SIOO worth of property, the
total valuation being $25,230,532.99.
The state rate is 54 cents, so each
taxpayer in the country will pay a
combined rate of not less than
Following are the items going to
make up the county levy:
Interest on funded debt..... .$0.0255
Interest on sinking fund 0432
County school fund 32788
County general road fund 16
County generaj fund 13869
County road bond interest 0298
County road bond sinking fund .02215
Grand total county levy $0.74722
In explanation of these items, it
should be stated, that the county
sinking fund levy amounting to $0.0432
covers a sinking fund to take care of
territorial bonds, which were issued
in the past cost of erection
of the court house and other
permanent improvements within the
county. Last year no levy was made
to cover this sinking fund, but this
year the tax commission ordered that
it be made and it has been necessary
to double the levy so that a sinking
fund will be provided for two years.
The board of supervisors should be
congratulated to the fullest extent
by all taxpayers for having conducted
the affairs of the county in such an
economical manner, and there hav
ing been no increase in the expenses
of running any of the departments
over the previous year. In this period
of “Everybody Get Busy and Spend
the County's Money,” this is most
county levy has been occasioned by
the tremendous increase in the cost
of operating our schools. Something
like $85,000 will be spent this year
in the education of our children. We
have always been grateful for educa
tion but we do not know that every
dollar which has been spent in the
past for educational purposes has pur
chased a hundred cents worth of edu
cation. The great trouble with our
school laws lies in the fact that there
is no central authority covering the
purchase of school supplies. Each
little school district has its own board
of trustees who are very jealous of
their power and unfortunately those
having this disposition are usually less
experienced in the purchase of mater
ial and have been easily overcome by
the clever drummers and salesmen of
the scßfcol supply houses.
What this county needs is, a busi
ness administration in the purchasing
of its school supplies. Then and not
until then, will we receive our hun
dred-cents-on-the-dollar paid for edu
cational purposes. While there is no
definite law creating a centralized
purchasing power, those boards of
trustees who are broad gauged should
realize’ * that they can combine with
other boards of trustees and conduct
their purchases through the school
superintendent’s office and then they
will not only be able to show a bet
ter per capita cost for educational
purposes, but SAVE MONEY FOR
THEMSELVES AND THE OTHER
In order to give an idea of the
cost of schools, in addition to the
county general fund, it is interesting
to note that FLORENCE, District No.
1, is being assessed 43.77 cents per
SIOO valuation. The Union high
school at Florence will cost the tax
payers of that district 38.06 cents per
The taxpayers of Florence must
pay a county levy of $1.56, to which
must be added 54 cents as the state
levy. With an estimated levy of
80 cents in the town of Florence, each

holdings within the district, but to
those who have to carry the burden,
it is certainly a most serious thing.
Such things prevent men of means
from entering the community, for
they realize that it is foolish to in
vest money where taxes are going to
be a serious menace. This will be a
good time to call upon our good
friends who stated, when the high
school election was being agitated,
that it would only cost the taxpayers
5 cents on the SIOO, but they have
carried their point and we now have
to pay 38 cents.
