MOHAVE COUNTY MINER AND OUR MINERAL WEALTH OFFICIAL PAPER OF MOHAVE COUNTY VoLXXXIX. Kingman, Arizona, Saturday, November 20, 1920. No. 4. 10c Per Copy $3.00 a Year TESTIMONY COMPLETED IN UNITED EASTERN-TOM REED APEX SUIT At the conclusion of the testimony of their witnesses, Monday night, John P. Gray, R. L. Anderman and ,C. W. Herndon, attorneys for the United Eastern, rested their case. There were three points brought out by the defense: First that regardless of whether the two veins were a part of the same vein in the beginning, they are now wholly two separate and distinct veins. That the Big Jim vein has its apex in, and is wholly below the lines of the Big Jim claim and that the Gray Eagle vein has its apex and ends wholly in the limits of Tom Reed ground. Second that if the veins were orig inally parts of the same vein and the portion in the Gray Eagle ground is the top part of the vein, the Tom Reed could not follow the vein on its downward course, as, contemplated by the apex law', but would have to go up more than 400 feet on the fault, to reach the apex of the Big Jim vein. Third that if the general vein was originally the same, and separated by a fault, the fault movement was oblique, and the vein now in Gray Eagjc ground was never the portion of the vein originally connected with the Big Jim vein. Witnesses called by the Eastern were Horace V. Winchell, past presi dent of the American Institute of Min ing Engineers; Dr. Emmons, profes sor of geology of the University of Minnesota and head of the geological survey of that state; J. A. Burgess, former superintendent of the United Eastern; Fred Searles, eminent geo logist; and Ray W. Moore, present superintendent of the United East ern. Models fully as elaborate as the Tom Reed's were furnished by the United Eastern. One particularly in teresting was the reproduction of the veins, under glass showing the rela tive width, depth and slant of each vein, thus showing everything but the formation in between. Another model showed a cross-sectional view, giving one a very good idea of the veins themselves. To further acquaint the Court with the actual situation, Judge Bollinger will pay a personal visit to the mines for the purpose of studying the situ ation underground. This trip will be made December 1. Mr. Winchell and Mr. Phelps will accompany the Judge on this underground reconnoitering, explaining the different phases of the situation. On January 17 council for the Unit ed Eastern and Tom Reed will argue the case before Judge Bollinger. At this time also they will submit briefs. Sometime within sixty days from January 17, Judge Bollinger will make his decision. This is a most interesting suit in the mining world, owing to the fact that it opens up something new in apex law, namely: can a vein be fol lowed down and then up again sev eral hundred feet. HICHflRADE STRIKE ON AMERICAN 670 Last night at nine o'clock a report was received from Oatman that the United American, on its 670 foot level, had encountered some high grade ore showing considerable free gold. This morning the report was con firmed and in fact the new strike is reported by those who have seen it to be the richest ore ever taken from the Oatman district. As yet no as says have been run but when one tak es into consideration the highgrade that- has been struck in the Tom Reed and United Eastern, one can Readily figure that this ore will go into the thousands of dollars per ton. This strike is in the new drjft head ed toward the Tom Reed in whicli an underground connection will be made with the Tom Reed's 400 workings when both companies get to their end lint. As we go to press the excitement is getting intense and several auto mobile loads of United American stockholders are on their way to the mine.

CLOSES MONDAY H. L. Horner, in charge of the Red Cross Membership campaign in Mo have County, reports that member ships are coming in in the usual sat isfactory manner.

The quota for Mohave County this year is lzUU membersnips. Last year there were but 960. It is thought tliat the 1200 names will be enrolled this year without doubt. One thing that is not generally. known is the fact that half the money raised in the county stays here with the Mohave County Chapter to help carry on the Red Cross work here. In speaking of the Red Cross Roll Call,, Our President has said: "Sound patriotism and genuine human service are continuous, not in termittent, not contingent merely up on the excitement of war. If there is in some of us an inward cooling of the fine fervor which animated us in the crisis of the nation's stress and peril, a contraction of the spirit which en nobled us as individuals and as a na tion, now, during the 'Red Cross Call,' is a fitting season to take counsel with our inner selves, to re kindle the old flame, to reaffirm al legiance to practical patriotism and practical humanitarianlsm, and to symbolize the regeneration of our bet- J ter thoughts and handsomer selves by re-enlistment in a great army mobi lized for the common good." The Red Cross Roll Call for Mo have County closes this coming Mon day. BOY SCOUTS BANQUET NEXTJUESDAY NIGHT The Boy Scouts are going to have a banquet next Tuesday night in the basement of the St. John's Methodist Church.

ELLIOTT The funeral of the late Mr. J. O. Elliott, who met a tragic death at the Fourth Street Crossing in Kingman, last Saturday afternoon, was held Tuesday afternoon from Van Marter's Chapel. Death came suddenly, Mr. Elliott, with others, was waiting to cross the track, while an oil trafn was being broken. Two other machines had al ready crossed when he started up the truck he was driving. A freight en gine on the track next to that which the oil train was on, backed down upon him just as he was approaching the track. Tom Murphy who was with him, jumped, and it is thought that Mr. Elliott also jumped, but be ing on the side toward the approach ing train, he was caught as the train hit the truck and instantly killed. Muiphy ran down the track just ahead of the train as, dragging the' truck with it, it went on several fCet be fore it could be stopped. Coroner Smith was on the scene within four minutes after the acci dent and soon had a jury together to vie; the remains. They went into session soon after that, and then ad journed until the next morning, when they brought in their verdict as fol lows: That Mi-. Elliott met his death by being struck by a Santa Fe freight train; that the jury believed that the Santa FeVailroad was responsible for the accident, due to the carelessness of its employees in not taking prober precautions in the handling of traf fic over what is known as the Fourth Street crosing. The following men were on the Coroner's Jury: A. F. Harris, John Lako, Dan Lynch, W. Salter, Charles Etandish, H. B. Ma haffey, Robert Rosco and Murray Chappell. It was not the sense of the jury to blame the flagman for the accident. Mrs. Elliott was on the ranch at Lne time, ana was urougrn. m wiuruy iaiterwaras Dy Dupi. una lurs. vv. n..

PARK-TO-PARK HIGHWAY MEETING OUTLINES FUTURE PLANS PYTHIAN SISTERS DANCE THANKSGIVING EVE The committee of Pythian Sisters, who have the management of the dance Thanksgiving Eve, desire to make known to the public, the fact that the program for the dance will include schotisches, rye waltzes and quadrilles, for the benefit of the old er people, who like to dance these dances, as well as all of the other regular dances usually had. A very complete program has been arranged and all are assured of a good time on this evening, so no one will be using poor JuVlgment in be ing present. THAUlu DAY At 3 o'clock Thanksgiving Day the Mohave' County High School boys meet the boys from the Williams High School in a basket ball game at Kingman. The game will be play ed on the out-of-doors basketball grounds, recently arranged on N the baseball grounds. This promises to be one of the best games of the season. The local boys have been training hard the past few days and are in good condition. The Williams boys have the advantage of having played together for the past three years, having lost but one game last year, and that to the Phoenix High School, in a game played at Phoenix. They are a fast bunch, but the Mohave County boys are deter mined to make the going hard for them, and wipe out the defeat of a couple of weeks ago when they play ed the same team at Williams, when the game ended with a score of 42 to 14. The boys'from among whom Coach Kilburn will pick five to start the game off Thursday, are Bill St. Char les, Walter Jones, Chester Minear, Brad St. Charles, Ralph Johnsqn, Ed win Hilty, Glen Goodwin, Leon Har ris and Toler White. It is probable that most of these boys will get into action before the game is over. The admission will be 50 and 25 cents and it is hoped a record crowd will turn out to help the boys in this their initial effort to do in basketball what the Kingman "Baseball Team did in baseball. Besides, the Athletic Association needs money to carry out their program. They started off with $20, which they cleared from a dance, to which was added $100 given them by the different classes. The suits and expenses of $92 to Williams, though, have more than eaten up this amount. The gate receipts from Thursday's game however should more than put them in the clear. Athletic competition among the High School students should by all means be encouraged. Alta Miller has been chosen Cheer Leader and she and the other girls and boys are going to help put "pep" into the team from the word go. SMASHES WORLDS RECORD IN CALF-TYING EVENT Lee Robinson, who was announced at the State Fair as "the pumpkin rol ler from Mohave County", smashed the world's record at Phoenix last week for tying one calf. The new record hung up was 21 seconds. The old record was 23 seconds. Robinson was the only Mohave County boy who participated in the Rodeo at the Fair, won in all $925 in prizes. EPISCOPAL SERVICES 1 According to announcement last ' made- by Rev. Luther Moore of the i Episcopal Church of Flagstaff; Even ing Services and Sermon will be held downstairs in the Odd Fellows Hall at 7:30 P. M. Monday evening, No vember 22, 1920. The Holy Communion Service will be held upstairs in the Odd Fellows Hall, Tuesday morning, November 23, 1920, at 7:30 A. M. The Public is cordially invited to attend. By ANSON H. SMITH. As the fruition of years of hard work Gus Holmes, of Cody, Wyoming, last week saw his dream of a high way connecting the parks of the great west entering upon a tangible exis tence. , After 78 days of traveling over good and bad roads that made up .the highways leading from Denver through all of the National Parks and covering a distance of nearly 6000 miles, the big motorcade reached Denver on the 8th of this month. On the 11th delegates from the 11 state3 through which the highway is map ped, arrived in Denver and went into session' for the purpose of working out some plan of action whereby the Congress of the United States. may be induced to appropriate the neces sary money to lay out and hard sur face the entire roadway comprising the circle of Parks. The matter was' thoroughly discussed and we believe put on a basis for eariy consumma tion. During the session 132 delegates took part in its deliberation. From Arizona 11 delegates were present. K C. Becker and H. E. Gibbons, rep resented Apache County; Rev. Fr. Vabre, Fred Gearing and T. C. Wol fack, Flagstaff; C. E. Larsen, and W. C. Rittenhouse, Wiliams; R. B. Wal ton, Winslow; Judge C. G. Krook and Anson H. Smith, Kingman; IE. A. Rit ter, Oatman. The delegates were highly enter tained during the Session by discus sions relating to the manner and method of building the great roadway and maintaining it after it becomes an entity. Delegates told of the im mense importance that good roads have been to the various communi ties that have been favored by good highways, Denver and Salt "Lake City apparently being the most favored of all sections. Salt Lake representa tives told the convention that more tourists had passed through that city this year than through any other city on the continent. While this is not quite believable, we know that Salt Lake has received a fair quota of the travel across country. But statistics compiled by the auto clubs of Califor nia show that more travel has come to that state over the National Old Trails Road than all the other high ways combined. And right here, as an illustration of the enormous travel that has gone over the Old Trails this season the records show that more than 13,000 cars passed through Kingman, carry ing four and a fraction people to each car, or close to 60,000 as a total. This record is official. We know Kingman does not appreciate the fact that she entertained 60,000 guests this year, but she undoubtedly did, and large benefits accrued to every class of business through it. Kingman and Oatman may well feel (Continued on Patra 12) Those fullly accredited by the State Board of Education, University of Arizona and "North Central Associa tion are: Bisbee, Douglas, Gila Nor mal College, Glendale, Globe, Mesa, Miami, Nogales, Phoenix, Prescott, Safford, Tempe, Tucson and Winslow.
