A home run in the last half of the
-ninth inning with a man on first,
broke up a real ball game at Williams
last Sunday with Kingman on the
short end of the score.
Bcore Kingman 6, Williams 7.
The Kingman "Wildcats" started
Tight after Lipton the Williams pit
cher and by heavy hitting and fast
"base running, scored three runs in as
many innings. The Williams defense
then tightened and until the eight in
ning Kingman got' but few hits which
were scattered, and not dangerous.
In the third and fourth innings Wil
liams hit the ball hard, and scored a
run each time. Wjth the score stand
ing 3 to 2 in favor of Kingman, both
teams settled down to heavy woric,
and the fastest base ball of the season
was handed to the faithful fans. It
looked like a pitcher's battle-until the
last half of the seventh, when Wil
liams with the aid of two hits and 'a
lucky break garnered three runs.
Score Kingman 3, Williams 5.
The "Wildcats" had hard luck in
this inning as a high fly close to the
third base line 'could not be fielded
by MacMillan, as an automobilevwas
parked where it had no right to be.
The ball rolled under the rear of the
machine and two runs came in on the
nit However, Mac heaved the ball in
time to catch the batter as fto was
sliding into the plate.
In the eighth two clean singles put
a man on first and second for the
Wildcats, and then Howard Smith
cleaned the bases with a mighty wal
lop over the right fielders head. It
,was a beautiful drive and put King
man in the lead again, by a score of
Then came the fatal ninth. "The
second man up for Williams hit
speedy grounder to Fennel which took
a bad bound and the runner was safe
on first. Knorr served Proctor pne
down the groove and he hit it beyond
the reach of Hayes in center field, and
the game was over.
Bill Klein umpired behind the plate,
and as usual his decisions were never
i.. nocfirTil. The umpiring
was absolutely impartial and fair, and
the game went qulcKiy, ior noi
moment was consumed in wrangling.
Kingman played a good fast game,
and with their usual stick work would
have easily brought home another vic
tory. It is the first time this season
aeven runs have been enough to beat
I the "Wildcats".
The entire team wants to go on rec
ord ,in declaring that it is a real pleas
ure to play base ball with Williams,
for both their team and their fans are
fine sports, good rooters, and care

The abstract of Mohave county's
taxroll shows a gain over last year of
about $160,000 although the mines of
Oatman sjiows appreciation of more
than $400,000. The falling off in the
production of the Oatman mines for
the past year was due entirely to the
lack of miner3 and other labor, and
not to any depreciation in the value of
ore, '
With full crews of miners operatmg

of the year Mohave county next year
will show big gains. The valuation
for the year is close to $24,000,000,

counties. He reports that Utah is
experiencing some depression, but
that all lines of business are looking
forward to great activity this fall.

democratic national convention at San
Francisco and is much pleased with
the, platform and candidates. By the
way, the many friends of Mr. Johns
are feeling badly because he failed to
allow his name to go into the state
primaries as a candidate for governor,
but on the other hand it is more than
probable that he will again stand for
the office of senator, which he so ably
filled during the past several ears

terests of the state and in fact every
other interest that makes for the

roof of stope 30-20 of the Aztec mine
of the Tom .Heed estate at Oatman.

that it took rescuers more than one
hour to recover the body. The man
had been working in the mine only a
short time, having arrived from Jer
ome only a few days before his death.
In the 'examination of the body of
Trujillo, there was found three bullet
wounds that had healed over, each ev
idently been made by a large or soft
nosed bullet, which gave the impres

in one of the various Mexican armies

The first of this week the cattlemen
of Mohave county were f , feeling no
little concern on account of the long
dry spell which lias not only been
making the feed bad, but making a
serious condition regarding the water
supply as well.
About 4000 head of cattle had
gathered at the Red Lake tank' and
steps were taken to moe some of
these before the water gave out, as it
would nave been a difficult matter.to
move them 30 or 40 miles to. other
water after the tank had gone dry.

week with prospects of more in the
near future has relieved the situation

ing a serious situation.
The people of Mohave County have
not felt it as much as many places on
account of the fact that oil and gas
are used here for so many essential
industries. There are but a few dis
tricts in the west where this holds
true and those using gas for pleas
ure trips only should bear this in mind
and limit themselyes to as small quan
tities as posible or the county may
find itself in the short condition that
other places are facing..
Fuel oil is also under fire. The
Desert Power and Water Co. has had
notice, of the fifth raise in price of
oil this year.
, These raises are all the way from
5 to 25. The last raise which went
into effect to-day is one of 8.

Mr. Parker expects to go in to the
coast for a couple of weeks stay about

Jim Curtin returned.this week from
the coast where he took a couple of
cars of beef cattle. This is some
thing new in the line of cattle sales

ern. California.however has .made beef
cattle 'scarce this1 year. - '
Judge E. Elmo Bollinger returned
from the coast Thursday, after spend
ing a few days there following the
Democratic Convention, where he
went as a delegate from Arizona. He
says that in the 44 ballots cast, the
Arizona delegation had never cast
less than one nor more than 5 votes
for Cox, and that everyone seemed
well pleased 'with the selection made.
The night before the convention all
the delegates and visitors from the
western states were banqueted by the
California delegation at the Fair
mont. There were about 250 present
and the purpose of the meeting1 wa3
to organize in order that the western
states might be represented in the
Democratic platform. Governor Sam
B. Stewart, of Montana, was elected
president of the organization, which
will be a permanent one, and E. E. .
Bollinger, secretary. During the
evening the gathering was addressed
by Senator Key Pittman, of Nevada,
Gavin McNab, of San Francisco and

ed on a committee to consider matters
ofv interest to western states and from
it a sub-committee appointed to draft
a plank" onNreclamation, to be sub
mitted to the platform committee.
Mr. Bollinger was again given recog
nition by being placed on this com
mittee where he served with Will R.
King, of Oregon, now chief counsel
of the U. S. Reclamation Service, and
L. R. McCandless of the Hawaiian Is
lands in drafting the reclamation
plank that finally went into the Dem
ocratic platform. The committee was
assisted by Carl Hayden, who is well
informed on 'needed power and recla
mation legislation. This plank doe3
not refer to the Colorado river 'espec
ially for reasons readily seen, but it
is universally understood that the Col
orado will receive first attention if
anything is done in the west along
tins line. '
Judge Bollinger says that all visi
tors from Mohave County and Ari
zona were sealed at the convention
anytime they visited there despite the
scarcity of seats.
