Thg baseball fans were out in force i to the recreation grounds last Sun-: day alternoon to witness a game of baseball between the Indians and the 1 "Savages” or white boys, It was eithter a railing good game or else, a very bum one —depending entirely ! from what standpoint one’s inference is drawn. The score at the end of the game stood 56 to 6 in favor of the Indians. If big figures are any criterion for good playing and home runs were not cheap—tg be had mere ly for the taking of them—then both 1 sides, the losers as well as the win ners, played a remarkably good game. WALLAPAI WARD TURNS TRICK ON EDUCATORS “There is nothing that savors of an untutored mind in the case of the Wallapai Indian boy examined hy me at Clarktsdale last week for robbing. the postoffice,” said U. S. Commis sioner Rutherford of Jerome. . This official went into details of th daring deed of this youth of only 14 years, and stated that over SI,OOO in checks had been taken from the box on tiie inside and while in the posses sion of the Indian, some neat pen manship in forgery, and also some crude conceptions of manipulating the get-rich-quick trick were disclos ed. The names of the persons to whom the various sums were drawn, were forged on the back as cleverly as by an expert, and held good in be ing cashed. The boy, however, went too far,in several cases, by substitut ing the signature of the manager of a big mining company for that of the one to whom the check was issued. The same name was placed on the back of the paper to certify to its genuine nature. This conflicting chi rcgiaphy exposed the game and the arrest followed. The boy admitted bis guilt and later conducted officers to four different caches where all the musing checks were recovered. The boy was educated by the government and seems to be making good speed in keeping pace with the criminally inclined of the pale faced race. —Pres- cot r Journal-Miner. Got there too Late. Dan McMahon, who left here a 3hort time ago in company with Toni Flannigan and a couple of burros, with the intention of taking up and prospecting a promising claim in Mohave county, near the Sheep Trail mine, which he had located a few years ago but had to abandon becausa conditions were not propitious at the tim for continuing work, returned to Parker last week looking very dejected. He found when he got rhere that some one had located the claim only two days in advance of his arriva’ and posted a notice there of, which of course was a caution to anybody else having designs on that ciaim to sheer off. He read the notice and the longer he looked at it the more he thought of the untold wealth it covered which might have been his’n for the taking of it, to say nothing of all the trouble he had been put to, hence his dejection. So hi aping mental maledictions upon Hie absent locator who “beat him to it,” and cussing himself for his own blooming tardiness, he turned his burros about and made tracks for Parker, resolving to go back to the “farm” as the oniy place becoming a miner who had drifted into such tardy ways, but evidently forgetting it is quite natural that a fellow driv ing a pair of burros before him jhould always be “behind.” SOUND ADVICE. Opportunity is knocking at your door. Why coninue to snub her? Why not heed her advice? What you possess today is evi of what you did without yesterday. And in the years to come, in ac cordance with what you are saving now, you will be financially indepen dent or financially “broke.” What will it be with you? Are you better able to breast the storms of life now than you will be 25 or 50 years hence? Do without the luxuries now so that you may have them in later life. If you are interested in getting on in the world we would be pleased to have you call. Yours truly, COMMERCIAL BANK. O. M. Spence, Cashier. Has a Garden Patch. Henry Hulbrook has planted a veg etable garden around his bungalow near the Raney place, specializing on radishes. duly cultivated his ground and planted the seed, there is only one thing more he wants —a rain-maker to get busy — since his prayers, like those of the wicked, have availed him nothing in that line so far, giving him occasion to worry not only for the future of his radishes but for his own hereafter Ruby Noses Now Deceive. There seems to be a veritable epi- j demic of la grippe in these parts, for ; the past week or two, and ruby noses j are so much in evidence? that nobody would suspect this to be a “dry” town. Every other fellow you meet j on the street has to stop and blow his “dose” before he can tell you what a “dab” bad “gold” h© caught. STRIKING POINTS IN PRESIDENT WILSON'S MESSAGE. The department of war contep tplatea an increase of the standing force of the regular army from its present strength of 5,023 officers and 102,985 enlistted men to 7,135 officers and 134,707 enlisted men, and sup plementing the army by a force of 400,000 disciplined citizens. It will be for the advantage of the country for the congress to adopt a comprehensive plan for putting the navy upon a final footing of strength and efficiency. Tlie gravest threats against our National peace and safety have been uttered within our own borders. It is necessary for many weighty 1 ’’tcisonc of national efficiency and development that we should have a great merchant marine. It seems to me a clear dictate of prudent statesmanship and frank fi nance that in what we are now about to undertake we should pay as w r e got We- should be following an almost universal example of modern govern ment if we w’ere to draw' the great er part or even the w'hole of the revenues w r e need from the income taxes. We have been put to thg test in the case of Mexico and w r e have stood the test. Whether we have benefited Mexico by the course we have pursued remains to be seen. Our concern for the independence and prosperity of the states of Cen tral and South America is not alter ed. DEMAND FOR TUNGSTEN ORES. Tue intense demand for the ores of tungsten during the past few months has stimulated much interest : in prospecting for tungsten and in the purchase of tungsten mines. As yet. uowever, there is a large unfilled demand for properties both in the prospecting and developed stages showing ores of tungsten of suffi cient value to work. During the past few w'eeks the Arizona State Bureau of Mines has had inquiry from responsible pur chasers in the east desiring to pur chase tungsten mines, and the Bure ail will be pleased to communicate the details of any tungsten properties that may be called to its attention. Arizona should be ready to pick the fruit w’hen it is ripe, and the time is now ripe for the sale of tung sten properties. Those having such properties for sale should communi cate at once with Professor Charles F. Willis, director Arizona State Bu reau cf Mines, Tucson, Arizona. I ■ - GULLIVER WAKES UP. PARIS, Dec. 9.—A Figaro article! captioned: “Gulliver Wakes Up,” cony ments extensively on President Wil son’s message, declaring it to be animated by righteous anger, not al- ! together free from metaphysics. The article says: "The more one reflects,! the more convinced he becomes that! the economic and political absorp tion of America is one of a great and secret design on the Germanic Empire, and consequently nothing is more inevitable than an eventual con flict between Germany and the United States.” Other papers ap prove the message. PEOPLE PRAISE SIMPLE MIXTURE Many in Parker praise the simple mixture of buckthorn bark, glycerine, etc., known as Adler-i-ka. This rem edy is the most THOROUGH bowel cleanser ever sold, being even used successfully in appendicitis. ONE SPOONFUL relieves almost ANY CASE of constipation, sour or gassy stomach. ONE MINUTE after you take it the gasses rumble and pass ( out. Adler-i-ka cannot gripe and the INSTANT action is surprising. The City Drug Store. Returned from Vacation. Dan Collins, the night operator for the Santa Fe, after a month’s absenca on his vacation, returned to his duties on Thursday of last w’eek, J having visited the exposition at San Francisco and other points of inter est. Among other friends whom he j met while abroad was Frank Hemp stead,formerly of Parker,who he says is now' permanently located at El t Paso. To Work the Empire. J. H. Watson of the Arizona-Em pire mine, w'ho arrived here from Los j Angeles last week, says that the i owners of the mine, or their repre-: sentatives, will be in Parker on the ! 15th instant, when plans will be for mulated for working the mine. This is surely good hews to the people of Parker. PETITIONS FOR RECALL ARE CULMINATION OF AWARD ING OF ROAD CONTRACT No. 1 TO O. AND C. COMPANY; START ED AT MEETING, . Petitions asking the board of super visors to call an election which has for its object the recall of County Su pervisors .1. A. Donovan and J. H. Shanssey, were launched last night at a meeting of farmers held at the Rood school house, and the same will he circulated in Yuma county from this time forward until they shall have either been signed by the requi site number of names to effect a re call election or it shall have been demonstrated that 25 per cent of the electors who voted for the office of supervisor at the last general elec tion are not in favor of the recall of the officials named. The petittions are the culmination of the somewhat bitter fight that was made by a certain element to induce Supervisors Donovan and Shanssey not to sign the O. & C. road con tract. They were drawn Friday by Attorney P. T. Robertson, and yes terday James Meadows, one of the leaders in the movement, took copies to the meeting which was called for the Rood school house last night. The morning Sun received no report from this meeting, but presumes it was held according to arrangements made during the last days of the week. The constitutional amendment on thg recall proposition provides that at least 25 per cent of the qualified electors who voted for the officer de sired to he recalled must sign a peti tion asking for such recall before an election can be held. Provision is also made for the payment by the county of S2OO to each official named in such recall petition, which is for the pur pose of defraying the expenses neces sary for him to incur during such recall election, this money to be paid after the election is called. In the instance at hand, it is stated by some of those who have given the matter attention, about 450 names will be required on the petition before an election can be had. —Yuma Sun, sth inst. Arrived in Nebraska Home. Word from Mr. and Mrs. O. L. Bab cock, received by Parker friends, is 1.0 the effect that they arrived at their new home in Winnebago, Neb., by auto without any mishap or se rious delay. This side of Albuquer que Mr. Babcock broke an axle, but this was quickly remedied and they proceeded on their way without much delay. PENCILGRAPH3. (Mostly stolen.) Tell a girl that she has a pretty nose and she will get cross-eyed try ing to look at it when there isn’t a mirror around. If people always told the truth there wouldn’t be much talking done, but there would be a hospital on each street corner. When you tell a girl that she sings like a bird she is so pleased l that she forgets that the crow and the pelican are both birds. Women are such natural born ham mer weilders that it seems strange that there are not more female black smiths and boiler makers. No matter how far down and out a man may he, he can always truth fully brag that there was a time v\ hen tie rode in his own carriage. Maybe the reason why the Women don’t discard the tight skirt and wear trousers is because it would take more goods to make the trous ers. A man will roar about economy until ins wife makes him a shirt with her own hands and makes him wear it. Then he shuts up for keeps, and bnbes the laundryman to lose the shirt. After doping the matter out for some years, an eastern high-brow has decided that you can keep a baby a month for $5. Maybe. But we'll bet $5 that the high-brow can’t be coaxed into keeping a baby an hour foi that amount. No. 31.
