THE MOHAVE C(HT'TY MINER AND OI'R MINERAL WE LTIL, PAGE FIVE V ' i h ' , s. REPRESENTATIVE OE STATE BUREAU OE NINES WILL SPEAK IN KINGMAN Mr. George R. Fansett, mining engineer of the Arizona State Bu reau of Mines of the University of Arizona, will soon repeati his suc cessful extension lecture "Prospec tors' Mineralogy," in all the larger towns and camps of the state. The purpose of this lecture is to stimu late the search for and aid in the discovery and development of de posits of valuable minerals. Thislecture, as given, is primarily intended to reach all people, both young and old,' who'have very little, if any, knowledge of mineralogy, chemistry, and allied sciences. For that reason the work is handled in the simplest and most direct manner in order that it may accomplish the be& results and make it possible for those who attend these lectures to make their own tests for the de tection and the determination -of minerals. 1 Mr. Fansetffe technical training and practical experience in mining and prospecting make him especial ' ly welPqualified for this particular work. He is a graduate of Yale University, later flaking1 a post graduate course in mining at the Columbia School of Mines of New York City, and the University of "Washington School of Mines at Seattle, Washington. In addition to this technical training he has had over thirteen years' practical experi ence in mining work in Arizona, Cen tral America, and South America. Mr, Fansett is a member of the American Institute of Mining En neer, the Southwestern Society of Engineers, the Yale, Engineering As sociation, and other engineering or ganizations, and through his exami nations and reports on properties, lie has Ixyen directly responsible for the development of several produc ers, thus adding to the world's list of producing mines. His close, asso ciation and contact with minersand prospectors has enabled him to un derstand what they especially need in this line, and how to present this subject, which is of the greatest importance and use to them, so that they can fully understand it and be able to do the work themselves. Owing to the fact that his lecture, "Prospectors' Mineralogy" fills a lori? felt want in this state of mines J and mineral possibilties, it is nopea that? those interested will take ad vantage of this course when Mr. Fansett comes to Kingman. SCHOOLlPPiTIONMENT ARMY PLANES CRASH AT PHOENIX GLLF TO PACIFIC SQUADRON IN ACCIDENT FOR MOHAVE COUNTY Mohave County schools have jus,t received the apportionment of the state in the sum of ,$5,517.29, the smallest amount apportioned to any of the fourteen counties. Mohave is shy on children of school age, having but 1,061 children out of a total of 73,698 in all the counties of the state. The total sum distributed by the superin tendent of public instruction was $383,229.60. Maricopa has the. great est number of children, 18,035, Cochise being next with 12,677. Four million starving war victims in western Asia. Help them out Feb ruary 3-10, the week of the Armenian Belief Campaign for the Southwest. THOENIX, Feb. 3. The first air plane crash in the history of Phoenix occurred yesterday afternoon, when the first army air squadron which has visited this city arrived from Tucson en loute from Ellington Field, Houston, Tex., to San Diego, and landed on the golf grounds of the Ingleside Country Club. Of the four machines, two smashed. None of the birdmen were injured. Blame for the accident was laid by the aviators on the soft condition of the soil of the landing field. Although only two of the big De Havilands suffered accident, the oth er two, the first and last to land, narrowly escaped, their wheels plow ing deep into the sandy course. The less fortunate machines tipped for ward when their landing wheels were clogged in the earth, one turning completely over, forward. The other halted in mid air standing periously on its nose. As a result, the army airmen will not be able to continue their flight westward from Phoenix at once, as was planned, and may be delayed here several days, vlt will take some time to repair the plane which turned turtle, and Ellington Field will have to be sent to, for spare parts. It was only at 2:3ft o'clock yes terday afternoon that It was defini tely announced from the chamber of commerce that the places, which had bden delayed in leaving Tuscon, would start their flight from that city at 4 o'clock, landing at the Ingle side grounds. Before that time, it was not known whether the squadron would land here at Hall Field, which had been accepted for. army use by the military aeronautics at, Washing ton, or the other field offered. MADE FAST TIME The flight from Tucson, Lieutent ant Louis Lewyn, official photograph er of the party which is mapping aerial routes, said, was made with out Incident and in record time, the distance of about a hundred and ten miles by airline being made in prac tically an hour of flying time. The squadron was sighted from the Ingleside grounds, where a small crowd of perhaps three hundred had 'gathered the few who knew definite ly when and where the planes would alight at five minutes after five, flying in perfect squadron formation in the shape of a large diamond. The planes nrew rapidly nearer, and the hum of their motors beihg heard al most as soon as they were seen. After the great army birds were sighted against the mountains to the south, they circled around to the west, passing between Scottsdale and Phoenix, then heading for the mark ed field. CONTINUES ITS FLIGHT The first landing of the squadron was made at 5:20 o'clock, when the first of the DeHavilands the first of its kind ever seen in this district, and one of the best two-seated models made in this country during the war took the ground for a per fect landing. Trouble' was immedi afelv encountered in the shape of the weVsandy soil on the grounds,, but the big plane came safely to a stop, Its wheels buried up to the spokes. Lieutenant "Seurle, commander of the squadron, and his companion, Lieutenant Jones, aided by spectator volunteers wheeled the machine away quickly and prepared to signal their companions in the air as to the na ture of the soil. Both officers, were considerably surprised at the soft ness of the ground. PLANE TURNS TURTLE It was, the second plane, which landed shortly after the first, 'vhich turned turtle. Its disaster, so nearly tragic, gave the onlookers a distinct thrill and three hundred persons caught their breath as- the big ma chine tipped straight forward, poised for a moment on Its nose, and fell over with a crash on its back, the two fliers, Lieutenants Nelson and Billheimer, remaining safely in their seats. " The upper wing of the plane was badly damaged in the smash, a num ber of struts broken, 'and the pro peller snapped. It will take some time to effect repairs on the wrecked machine and it is possible that it be' left for repairing while the rest of the squadron will continue their flight. The third machine, like the second, tipped forward almost as soon as it landed, its wheels clogging in the sand. Skillful manipulating by its pilot, Lieutenant Charles V. Rugh, baved it from complete catastrophe, however, and it stopped in midair, its nose buried in the soil and its tail high in the air. The only damage suf fered was a broken propeller, and the plane itself was righted without much trouble. It can be repaired quickly.. . The last DeHaviland to take the ground was piloted by Lieutenant Burkett, with Sergeant Kane, me chanic of the party, for passenger. Lieutenant Burkett did not tell his emotions as he soared to earth with in a short distance of his two strick en comrade planes, but they can be easily imagined. The landing was effected' without mishap, but with plenty of thrill, the plane narrowly escaping the nose dive taken ly the two others. Its landing was great ly aided at the last minute by Ser geant Kane, who left' his seat and clambered back on the tail of the. plane in an effort to keep it down. PREPARE TO STAY Whil the spectators gathered around and took in the novel sight of the four Liberty-motored planes, one lying flat on its back, the aviat ors lost no time in preparing for the night. Tanks were drained and places covered, while the gas tank of the wrecked machine was care-' fully emptied to avoid danger of fire. Efiorts were maae, Dy awacn- incr roDes manned by volunteers and birdmen, "to right the upset machine, but the first three attempts were fu tile, the rone breaking m each case, After completing their Bprepartions for the night, and perhaps for a sev eral day's stop, the aviators, with members of the chamber of commerce committee in charge of the landing, adjourned to the Ingleside l.iud near Kir fnr dinner, coming into the city last night, where they were the guests of the Arizona Club. Their plans today deal wiui repairing mo damaged planes, and no definite time has been set for their departure. The Ladies Aid Society of the M. E. Church are going to have another one of their famous- cooked food sales on Saturday afternoon, at 3 o'clock on March 1st, 1919, at the City Meat Market. All are cordially Jnvited.

R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Co., Winston-Salem, N. C. prominent mining investors of the country, died at his home in St. Louis last Saturday from a complication of disorders. Mr. Millikin was the own- er of various mining and milling properties of Cripple Creek, notably the Golden Cycle mill, but sold them to a syndicate about ten vears ago, realizing about $15,OBO,000 Nc;ash. He had many other holdings of min ing property and real estate in St. Louis, Denver and Colorado Springs that are said to have value far lino the millions. He was a man who believed in keeping his money on the move and having a knowledge of mining he in variably was successful in his un dertakings. He stood ready at all times to help a friend or prospector, and many were his benefactions dur ing his long life. ORGANIZE COMPANY TO ItylNE GRAPHITE An eastern company has been or ganized to mine graphite in the north part of Los Angeles county, California. The veins are said to carry very rich material, the ore being flake, graphite. A plant is to be established 'at the mine,, and a number of men employed in the work. , While there is no flake graphite in this county there are many deposi tions of the granular material. East of Mineral Park there is a vein of fairly good material, while over in the river range and in the Cheme huevis are many deposits. The costs of handling graphite are high and the material has no steady market. The poorer quality is used in the manufacture of black lead crucibles, while the pure granular graphite with a small percentage of foliated is used in the making of lead pen cils. Heretofore all foliated gra phite has been obtained in the East Indies. r LARGE ARSENIC PRODUCTipNS There were available for consump tion in the -United States during 1918 approximately 12,000 short tons of arsenic, which quantity about equals the estimated demandand is 3,850 tons greater than the average yearly supply (8,150 tons) for the period 1911-1916, inclusive. The domestic production of arsenic in 1918, as eatimatedjtrom the known production 'during 11 months, was about 6,395 short tons and was made by four companies. This quantity is 10 per cent greater than that produced in 1917. The value of the output in 1918 at a price fixed at 0" cents a pound was $1,151,100, but the actual value was probably slightly greater, as that price was not fixed until February, 1918. Owing to the lower prices fixed under governmental reg ulation this value is lower by $150, 000 than the value of the 5,826 tons produced in 1917. PROCLAMATION DESIGNATING SUNDAY, FEBRUARY THE NINTH, 1919 AS ROOSEVELT MEMORIAL DAY is a world loss. As night brings, out the stars, the passing ot this ex-president, statesman, and scholar bus brought into bold relief those traits of heart and .mind which 'endeared him to the NAmerjcan people and made him aninternational figure. Americans are not a race .of hero worshippers, but they are ready to pay homage tto such men as Theodore Roosevelt, 'concerning whom it has been said with truth: "Strong' of will, big of heart, in- ! tense of purpose, grea in his en- vnusiusnis, iure in tne numuer mm quality of his achievements, extra ordinarily convincing in speech, ac complished in' writing, of a versatili ty of mind remarkable, and with an active imagination, loving his friends and his cause with equal ardor, he held the friendship, the confidence and the affectionate regard of mil lion's of his countrymen. When Ger man aForession became uncovered he took his stand of uncompromising loyalty and became the great pro phet of Americanism. He was the most potent force to arouse Ameri ca from her lethargy and indiffer ence; his was the demand for pre paredness; his was the voice that called to arm." He was not only a great man but la national inspiration, raising the standard in. American political life and by precept and example chang ing the mental attitude of the peo ple and instilling in them the true obligations of citizenship. His char acter, rugged and energizing made a peculiar, appeal to the West. His love for this broad expanse of coun tmwith its promise of future great ness beyond the ken of human un derstading found lasting expression in that great engineering, achieve ment, the Roosevelt Dam, the living waters of which have made glad the hearfr of the Salt River Valley and caused the desert to blossom like the rose. To Theodore Roosevelt more than any other 'one public man can be' at tributed the bringing into being of that national consciousness which has demanded that the flag shall follow those who claim allegiance to it and protect the rights of person and property inrevery part of the world. Typical of a more forceful and bet ter race, a strong and virile people' backing right for right's sake and ready to champion the cause of the oppressed, he foreshadowed the dawn of that great day. "When the war arum shall throb no longer And the battle flag Is furled In the parllment of man The federation of the world." It is therefore meet and proper that as a nation and a state, we should pause and pay ,tribute to our Peerless-Leader who, although de parted this life, has left a marked impress upon his country's life and history. The congress of the Unit ed States has set aside Sunday, Feb. the Ninth as the day when it shall conduct services in his honor. NOW THEREFORE, I, Thomas E. Campbell, Governor of Arizona, by virtue of the authority 'vested in me, by the law, do hereby set aside Sun day, February the Ninth as Roose; velt Memorial Day and urge the people of the various communities on that occasion through the medium of public meetings and church ser vices to pay honor to the memory of this great American. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the State' of Arizona to be affixed.
