There is a pos sibility that the ranchers of that place will be unable to raise the nec essary amount of money to insure its construction. Chicago Man Returns. H. .1. Toner, the Chicago attorney who has been spending the week wi li Ed S. Osborne returned to liis home in the Windy City Thursday morning.

It is understood that Judge Collins will give them the limit, and if they cannot pay a stiff fine they will be incarcerated in the Bouse hoose-gow, or put to work on the streets. No favoritism is to be shown anyone, and if people must get drunk they will have to pay the p r? c or go to jail. Locals Defeat Visitors. The Parker Indian School team gave the Fort Mojave School aggre gation a decisive walloping in last Sunday’s baseball game. The visi tors didn’t even make a respectable showing to indicate that they knew anything about the great national game. At the end of the ninth inn- ' ing the scores stood 33 to 2 in fa vor of the home team. The Parker Indians played exceptionally good ball, while the visitors played like a lot of farmers. Next Sunday the Indians will go up against the regu lar Parker team. Tharpe in Town. W. H. Tharpe, who is promoting the proposed new electric railway for Parker, arrived from Prescott Tues day night. He reports the recent sale cl $50,000 worth of Parker Im provement company bonds, the pro ceeds to be expended in installing an electee plant, a gas plant, and in making other improvements which the company contemplates in the near future. Mr. Tharpe also re ports that active work on the elec tric railway is to begin as soon as the right of way has been secured from the interior department, which is expected within the next thirty days. Thieves Steal a Boat. Some unknown thieves got away with a row boat belonging to the Chuckawalla Development company last Friday night. The theft was discovered and Constable Clayton, ac companied by H. B. Hull and H. E. Buckingham, started in pursuit the following noon. Since leaving no thing has been heard of the party except that Mrs. Clayton received a message from her husband Tuesday to the effect that he was in Yuma and would be home in few days. It is not known whether the boat thiev es were captured, but it is presumed that they were, as the pursuers had a motor boat, and must have caught up with the fugitives before reach ing the county seat. They are ex pected home Sunday or Monday. Assessor Ming in Town. Assessor A. B. Ming spent a couple] of days here this week making up his assessment list for the coming year, and investigating the ownership of numerous lots in the Parker town site. There appears to be quite a mix-up in the records of the county over many lots located here. Mr. Ming stated that owners of lots have neglected to record their patents and in many cases deeds transfering titles to Parker realty have not been recorded. As a consequence these lots are taxed to the wrong parties. He urges that all patents and deeds be recorded at once so that the fu ture title to the property may not be clouded. The county has been in formed by the general land office at Washington of the lots upon which patents have been issued. These will be taxed against parties who have received patents, and the property will be sold for taxes in case of non payment. Under the circumstances it would behoove all owners of Par ker real estate to assist in straight ening out the county records. AGREE TO EXTEND TIME. WASHINGTON, Feb. 17.—An agreement upon an extension from ten to twenty years of time in which tue water users may pay back to the government the cost of the construc tion of irrigation projects was reach ed at a conference Tuesday night between Secretary Lane, officers of the reclamation service, Senator Smith of Arizona and Representative Smith of Texas, chairman of the congressional irrigation committee. The conference agreed that experi ence has shown the present period of ten years is too short to enable settlers to reimburse the government. I JUAN LARA MEETS DEATH.
