Phenominal oie li now being taken
from the Tellurite vein in the Tom
Reed estate The drift is now in 100
feet on the vein on the 500 which
is synonomous with the 400 level of
the Telluride and 18 inches of oie
is being carried in the drift that gives
an average value of 500 per ton
The drift heading is still 125 feet from
the end line of the Telluride which
gives the Tom Reed company a big
block of this rich ground This strike
is one of the most Important l ever
made in the east end of the Tom Reed
-estate and i3 an indication of the big
things that part ofthe property may
bring forth under intensive develop-
As the Telluride has opened this
vein at the 500 level 150 feet belpw
the present level of the Tom Reed
where the vein was 8 feet wide and
carrying an average content of 35
is to be expected that the Reedvetn
will also be found larger and as good
at the lower depth The drift on this
important vein is sure to be a wonder
when complete development has been
carried out especially if it rakes to
the west which is the usual thing in
the mines of that camp The devel
opment of this ore body means great
things for the property because of
its association witlrthe paralleling
veins as it is possible that the other
Veins lying contiguous may be just
aa important in bearing ore bodies
A body of ore of the potentialities
jf the one just opened is one of the
most important items of news hat
has ever come out of the Oatman
The Tom Reed is also driving its
crosscut into the faulted segment of
the Aztec vein at the 300 and expects

Jury Term First
Week in November
The trial jury that was called for
a jury session this week found that
there was no business for it and an
adjournment was taken to the third
Monday in November at which time
it is expected that all criminal and
civil business will be cleared up The
failure of the present jury session was
caused by the illness of attorneys who
had causes before the court and the
unpVeparedness of some of the law
yers Litigants were scattered and
unable to be present in other cases

Quite a number of engineers both
of the federal government and the
J Southern California Ediscn have been
looking over the Glen Canyon Dia
mond Canyon and Boulder Canyon
damsites the past week Part of the
engineering force is under the direc
tion of E C LaRue who has been in
the hydrgraphic branch of the geolo
gical survey and who was recently
loaned to the state of Arizona for
the purpose of making a survey of
the possibilities- of the Colorado river
in relation to the reclamation of lands
in this state The work will be done
under the direction of the water com
missioner The engineers were accom
panied by Director Davis of the fed
eral reclamation service the secretary
to Sec Hoover and many other im
portant personages in the government
especially those having to do with re
clamation projects
The examination into the various
projects is of importance especially
when it is understood that many of
the men who are nowlooking into the
As the touch of fall starts to make
itself felt in the air the minds of
spoitimen turn to hunting and from
all indications thi3 is going to be a
gala year for hunters
A great number of hunting parties
have been organized for deer hunting
Some will go to Seligman some to the
Wallapais some to the reservation and
pne party at least will go across the
river Again this year there will be
keen competition as to who will bring
in the first buck
Quail are going to be bountiful this
fall Right along this line Gamewar

Lover the shooting of quail out of sea
son Mr Robinson says this practice
muststop and that anyone caught do

has appointed R L McMillan deputy
game- warden and hunters of King

Another thing to be considered are
the turkeys in the Wallapais The
game laws say that turkeys may be
shot from October 1 on This does
not apply to Mohave County where

LaRue favors the building of a loose key Mohave County is subject to
rock dam at Glen Canyon although
in this view he is opposed by practi
cally every engineer of repute in the
world It is this view of Mr LaRue
that has caused some comment by men
who know nothing of the condition of
the Colorado river and the immense
and the Tom Reed mine and mill I force of its current as opposed to the
going through the Big Jim shaft and currents of clear water streams From
jnto the Aztec and incidentally ex- j all sections of the country come en

The vote of the state at the recent
primary and special election was not
so heavy as anticipated there being
only about 60000 votes out of a pos
sible 80000 cast WJiile then has
been no tabluation of the vote on the
constitutional amendments it can be
j eadily seen that everyone of the pro
posed enactments have been defeated

The last round of holes in the Oat
man Gold this morning showed a
change of formation The rhyolite has
almost entirely been replaced by
quartz The quartz has considerable
iron in it and consequently it was dif
ficult to say just what it ran i
Superintendent Pugh however thinks
it highly probable that he has the
vein though he would not say so
for a certainty yet He expected the
hanging wall of the vein to carry rhy
olite andesite forming the footwall
The next round will be shot this
afternoon and results will be known
tomorrow morning
Until the next round is shot and
assays are made it can not be stated
whether they have the expected vein
Last Tuesday the contest case of
George Connel against the Willows
Cattle coinpany covering a land en

acted as official reporter in the mat
ter and volluminous testimony was
submitted the case going over into
Wednesday afternoon D V Mulhem
was counsel for contestant and D E
Morgan for contestee Both gentle
men were from Phoenix
The matters connected with this
cause was tried out early in the year
before a jury in the superior court the

Connel made an entry on the lands
whichare claimed by the Willows Cat
tle company and it is now to be
heard before the register and receiver
of the U S Land Office at Phoenix on
submission of the testimony taken
Tuesday and Wednesday last The
property is over on Knight Creek
about twelve miles from the old Wil
lows Station A home ranch was es
tablished at that place a number of
years ago when H B Imus was con
nected with the cattle company Later
men were put on the ranch and it is
pupposed or asserted that there was an
abandonment of the place by the com
pany Anyway the place was entered
several times by homesteaders but
each one either abandoned his entry
or relinquished until it passed into
the hands of the present ehtryman

The crosscut from the 600 level of
jthe Telluride mine is in about 20 feet
and it is expected to enter the vein
within the next few days The entry
of the vein on the 600 level is con
sidered especially important as it will
be the deepest level in that part of
the territory especially on the veins
radiating out of the Tom Reed ground
being about 200 feet below the present
workings of the Reed In the winze
which stands at a depth of 550 feet
eight feet of clean ore running 35
per ton was cut this being the largest
vein ever opened in the DroDertv TIip
development of the mine at the deep
level indicates possibilities heretofore
unknown in that part of the district
it is announced that at the present
time the Telluride has in the npiolihm

steps of the gallows Theodore West
lost his nerve and he had to be as
sisted in his climb to the gallows
where lip paid the death penalty for
the murder of Lem Smith in Mohave
county in July 1921
West maintained his claim of in
sanity to the last and steadfastly re
fused to make a confession The con
demned mans demeanor this morning
was in marked contrast to his behav
ior last night when he raged up and
down in the death cell cursing the
attendants and his fellow prisoners
This morning he was more subdued
and ate a light breakfast of soft boil
ed eggs He slept from 1030 last
night to 330 this morning when he
awakened and complained that he had
been disturbed After he had eaten
breakfast two clergymen were admit

to recognize either of them although
they have been visiting him regularly
for several weeks
A few minutes before 5 oclock West
was led from the death cell to the
executjon chamber He asked that he
be allowed to make his own way up
tne stairway leading to the jrallows
His request was granted but he had
to be assisted in his climb as his
nerves appeared to be going Arriv

with his guards Finally he had to
