Hunt will leave on the nineteenth of next month for Siam, where he will hold down the post of minister to that country. For a time it was thought that he would fail of confirmation by the sen ate, but as a tribute to Senator Mark A. Smith the United States senate agreed to his confirmation. Siam is a most peculiar country and one of its peculiarities is in its plural marriage system. If a man goes to jail he can be given his liberty by marrying any girl who may put in -9. bid for him, no matter if he is the husband of sev eral wives at the time. The king, we believe, is a graduate of Yale, but al though he has in a way adopted the ways of the western hemisphere he still clings to some of the peculiar customs of the orient. The country has held aloof from the influence of Japan, which influences have domin ated nearly all the nearby countries of the orient. It is a country of ro mance and it is said that those who go from the staid countries of the west are sure toput in the balance of their lives amid the tropical clime of that old world. , GRADUATES FROM NEVADA UNIVERSITY Miss Nellie McWilliams, of Las Vegas, was graduated from the Uni versity of Nevada at the last tem of that institution.

Mr. Mc Williams was a well-known civil en gineer and surveyed the Sheeptrail mines for patent. After the mar riage of the couple they removed to Flagstaff and ater went, to Vegns, where th'ey made their home "up to the present timp. Many people here will pleasantly remember Mrs. McWil liams, as she used to come here with the other teachers to the dances and entertainments in Kingman.

FORJRRIGATION Gov. Thomas E. Campbell will leave in a week or so for Chicago, where he will attend a meeting of the republi can national committee and urge the adoption of a plank m the platform pledging the party to irrigation meas ures. Gov. Campbell has 'also ad dressed a letter to Senators Ashurst and Smith asking their aid for the Boulder Canyon dam to secure an ap propriation of $50,000 to complete the surveys of that great project. The governor is president of the League of the Southwest and is working hard to bring about the great reclamation scheme that the building of the Bould er Canyon dam contemplates. He ex pects to go on to Washington to ex plain to the congress the great im portance of this project to the states adjoining'and to the nation as a whole O WEALTHY IMMIGRANTS That all the wealth of the country was not absorbed by the profiteers of the United States was evidenced the other day when the immigration of ficials at the port of New York were investigating the conditions of newly arrived passengers from South Amer ican liners. One family is said to have displayed wealth in excess of $300,000 and one woman, when quiz zed by the port officer, stated that the smallest amount she had was a check on a Pacific coast bank of $11, 000. A Syrian woman, travelling with her mother, carried $2,000 in her sock and had letters of credit for many more thousands. These people came to the United States to get away from unusual conditions in their native countries and brought their en tire belongings with them. Some of them had wonderful collections of jewels, such as would make a movie actress envious. 11 Bill rjrSyJlLL Boll ji)1 r ? 1 ' mr, I LtrtitA' Til. iHI I Mr Ik Use Checks LOOK FOR.THE CLOCK A bank check is a receipt, a safeguard, , a convenience, a proof of credit, a business necessity, a prime factor, ,in industrial ef ficiency.

Fee, Passenger Traffic Manager of the Southern Pacific is advising the railroad's local and east ern representatives of new irrigation projects involving the reclamation of thousands of acres lying along the Sunset Route in a territory where farming was undreamed of a few years ago.

Gillispie of Tulsa, Oklahoma, is the moving spirit in the enterprise.
