THE 11 Official Paper of Navajo County and the Holbrook Oil Field NEWS BiMGLK COPIES TEN CENTS RUMOR BIG GOLD STRIKEAT MOHAVE Mr. McNaughton of the Holbrook Oil Co. is in re ceipt of a letter from friends at Mojave which says that there is a sensational mining boom in that locality. They claim that it is one of the biggest gold strikes ever made in Arizona. l)N)0N OIL TRANSFERS A EMPLOYEES Mr. Burton, manager of the local branch of the Un ion Oil Co. has been trans . f erred to California where he will take charge of a station and Mr. Burtis who has been with him in Hol brbok has been sent to Yuma. Mr. W. W. Cadwell of our city will take over the local... managership, and Quince Gardner will fill the gjsition left vacant by Mr. urtis' transfer. Both of the young men who are leaving have, been well liked and it is with re gret that their friends hear of their departure, but can not blame them for a step up in the world. The new ' manager is well known in Holbrook and there is no doubt that he will be emin ently successful in his con duct of the business. FLOREIiCEJFiSHER ILL Miss Florence Fisher has been extremely ill this past week from the ravages of Eieumonia contracted dur g the recent cold spell. Her mother fortunately bad just returned from her trip and is nursing her daughter. Mr. Fisher came down from his station at Pinta for a few hours to be with the family. ATTENDS STATE FAIR Mr. Smith, Manager of the Standard Oil Station in Holbrook, was a Phoenix visitor this week. He tells us that the Fair was a great success and he enjoyed him self immensely. He says that the time of the winner in the road race averaged within-a fraction of sixty miles an hour. The weather is very pleasant in Phoenix, and the wild-west sports were unexcelled, in his re port. a halloweenTarh Mrs. Miller was the charm ing hostess at a delightful afternoon bridge party last Tuesday. The unique de corations were in keeping with the spirit of the hour and all present had a most delightful sense of the spirit of All Hallows Eve. At the close of the card playing the hostess served a most delicious refection. Every ose of the guests had a most delightful time as the abundant laughter and mer riment would testify. were snowed under The candidates of the two parties have nearly all re turned from their hegira to the southern part of the county. If a candidate got nothing else out of the cam paign he might at least get a good deal of fresh air, judging by the distance most of them travel. We might further remark that on this trip most of them got "snowed under", speak ing literally and not figuratively. WELL ON HIGGINS STARTED BY DECEMBER FIFTEENTH Taylor Interests Have WOMAN HELD ON UJt CHARGE Maybelle Cramer was ar rested yesterday by Deputy Sheriff J. B. Fox and Fed eral Agent Ed Rice on re quest from Phoenix, Ari zona, where Deputy Fox says she is wanted on a Fed eral grand jury indictment charging her with forgery of American Kailway Ex press money orders. Fox stated thftt in 1919 Mrs. Cramer's husband was the agent of the American Railway Express and that following his departure sev eral blank traveler's checks were missing. Later, he said, several of these checks were passed at Holbrook, Arizona, bearing denomina tions of $50 each and were signed Eva Jane Lewis. On January 19, this year, she was arrested and held for Arizona. Deputy Fox said she went to Governor Stephen's office with her husband and seven-year-old baby girl. Governor Stephens, after listening to the evidence, refused to grant extradition. It was stated that the mat; ter was then taken to the Federal eourU and that she was indicted by the Federal grand jury. She was arrested by the police at Inglewood Acres. Los Angeles Examiner. It will be remembered that this was the case in which Gov. Stephens refused Atty. T.R. Greer's request for ex tradition, lhe hnal result has most certainly justified the stand taken by the at torney, and Gov. Stephens will have to bow to the au thority of the Federal Gov ernment. BUSY BILL BRINGS BACK BACON Tony writers say that al literation is no good. But just the same it is justified this time for it expresses in a few trenchant words just exactly what we wanted to say. It points the moral of the tale that if you want a thing well done you must do it yourself. Bill Franklin has been selling cans so fast that he had none on hand most of the time, so he jumped on the train the other day and went down to Phoenix and argued with the heads of the business there to the effect that it was their duty to supply the cars at least as fast as he could sell them. They saw the light and now he has three carloads of cars to sell. That is going some, but we know it wont take him long. Incidentally he took in the Fair and when we asked him what he saw he said he saw a lady get hurt. It developed that .hi lady in question tried to make a parachute jump.and was too heavy and came down too soon, which is a lesson to us never to try a parachute until we have re duced. There are sedans, touring cars, and roadsters in the recent shipment, some of the Willys Knight some of the Overland and some of the Durant family. Dr. and Mrs. Morton were up from Needles during the latter part of last week. DOME WILL BE Machinny On Way When Dr. S. Eirl Taylor returned to Holbrook this week he had completed all arrangements for commenc ing of the well on the Higgins. Dome property. The machinery has been ship ped, and barring train wrecks, will be on the ground at an early date. The drill ing will commence on or be fore the fifteenth of Decem ber. This news is of great in terest to all of Holbrook. The location of the well on the Higgins Dome within sight of town gives promise of great benefit to the com munity itself. Oil developed in such close proximity to the city limits would mean unparalled prosperity for its citizen's. As soon as the machinery arrives it will be placed as rapidly as possible and the work of drjlling will be rush ed. The fact of the successful drilling of the well at Ship rock and the high grade of oil discovered there gives impetus to the interest in this field. From many points of view this is a much more desir able location on account of its nearness to adequate transportation and will give wider scope to the investor because it is not handicap ped by being on an Indian Reservation than will the Shiprock field. Dr. S. Earl Taylor's confi dence in the future of thi3 section is evidenced by his untiring efforts in securing proper means for develop ment. The drilling of the Higgins Dome Well is a con summation devoutly hoped for by all the citizens of Holbrook, and is now to be come a reality. STEADILY DRILLING The Adamana Oil Co. which has had a delay of a week or so on account of a break down of machinery is now working full blast. They have struck very hard rock, but are pushing on steadily just the same. The indications pre very good and the men are greatlyen couraged.
