Mayor Kuchen becker feels very optimistic about the future of Tombstone and in this has the company of others of his town. "The fact that we are offered elect ric light and power service by the con pny." he Said, "is in itself a very strong indication of the fact that k has sufficiently advanced with its investi gation of the old Consolidated Mines properties, which it now owns, to feel confident that there is a long period of profitable work ahead We of Tomb stone have always felt that such would be proven to be the case just as soon as mining ability and abundant funds be came interested in the camp, and we are more confident of it than ever. Tombstone has much growth in mining activity and population ahead. She is going to "come back" with a vengeance. Watch us grow." Bisbee Ore. Shannon Co. Will Resume Operations NEW YORK. Jan. 31. Orders were issued from the headquarters of the Shannon Copper Company here to the manager of its property at Clifton, Ari zona to resume operations at once in at once in both mine and smelter. The property has been closed down 'for the past three months on account of the low price of capper. The company has over 1,000 men in its employ when in full operation. The future prospect of tie copper industry is quite encouraging as the metal has shown a steady increase for the past few weeks. The outlook for the resumption of tbt Shannon Copper 'company's mines at Gleeson is now brighter than ever and it can only be a matter of time when a large force of men will be en gaged in delving for the precious metals f that district. ..axing Children Think.

Huachuca Pipe Line Is Out Again The storm which swept down on Co chise county brought another flood Saturday down the San Pedro river and did a considerable amount of dam age. A bank of Water eight feet high struck the pipe line of the Huachuca Water Company at the San Pedro crossing and pulled the pipe out of the 1 exbansion joint at that point and al though the extent of the damage is not known it is not thought it will require as much expense or time to get the line running again. Manager Gardner states' that it is not the intention of the company to shut the town down to a short supply each day until the repairs are completed but he believes that with care on the part of the users and the fact that everything is soaked that the sup ply in the reservoir will hold out until the repairs are completed. He also stat ed that this thing will probably hap pen at each flood, should any more. come, until the dry season when the line at that point will be put down like it was originally and it was twenty five years before any trouble was experienc. ed at that point. Benson Signal on County Seat Removal "- The biennial county seat removal bill has bobbed up again in the legislature, with an emegency clause attached to it. This county' has not yet advanced to the poiut where it is neccessary, to the masses thereof, to either divide the co unty or remove the county seat for economically transacting the public business. The scheme is simply to force the divison of the county on a compro mise so as to provide a certain set of Douglas and Bisbee politicians with lucrative official positions disregarding the pockets of the taxpayers entirely.

TUESDAY Bowie Bank Was "Talked to Death" PHOENIX, Feb. 3 Because the Bowie Bank and Trust Company was "talked to death" and a run was being; made on the institution. Cashier G. J. Armstrong, locked the safe, closed the bank building and took the next train for El Paso. The reasons for thc sud den closing of the institution were set forth in a letter from Armstrong to State Auditor J. C. Callaghan yester day. In his letter Armstrong says that the bank was one of the strongest in the state, but that enemies of the institu tion circulated reports as to its condi tion. Heavy withdrawals, which prac tically amounted to a run on Friday, followed. In view of these circum stances Armstrong said, he thought that the best thing to do was to close the bank and leave town. Armstrong: said nothing in his letter as to whether or not he expected to return to Bowie. Deputy State Auditor James B. Or mond and Assistant Attorney General George Harben are at Bowie, and are investigating I lie condition of the bank. While no statement has been issued as yet. Deputy Ormond, in a telephone message to Auditor Callaghan yester day said that he thought that the de positors were well protected, and that the affairs of the institution would be adjusted without serious loss. "The suspensions in this case is are due entirely to local circumstances and do not in any way reflect banking con- ditions in the state.
