There were hunters there from all parts of the county and guns of all sorts were in evidence, as well as clubs for the "close in" work of extermination.

Mr. Fred Wilson, a mine ex pert, who has been spending several days looking over vari ous mining properties in this dis trict, left Tuesday morning lor Phoenix, where he will remain a few days before returning to Patagonia. Sunday Mr. Coats and Tom Fraizer returned to Patagonia from their trip to Texas and Mexico. Mr. Fraizer left imme diately for the Nogales pumping plant on the Santa Cruz river, where he has the contract for the new city well. A dispatch from Phoenix re cently states that Fred T. Colter of Colter, Arizona, who was a candidate for governor of Ari zona in 1918, will leave within a short time for an extended trip to the Orient. He will be gone from six months to a year, visit ing China, Japan, Egypt, and other foreign countries, studying historic facts en route. Mr. and Mrs. Pete Etchells, who bad been visiting in Pata gonia for several days, returned to their home at the Mansfield mine, where Mr. Etchells will establish a mercantile establish ment at the camp. There is much activity in mining adjacent to the Mansfield mine and a store will be a great convenience to the miners and other residents of the neighborhood. H. E. Huntington, who has been conducting the blacksmith shop of C. B. Wilson for the past year or more, has gone to Winkleman to assist in the erec tion of an ore mill on the Rea gan property, which has shipped many carloads of ore to the smelter since the middle of Do cember. The blacksmith shop will be conducted by another man during his absence. The Farley & Hall lease on the Bender claims of the Hard shell mine are improving with development. While the ore is not all high-grade, there is a large body of low-grade being uncovered which carries much high grade in spots. The body now being developed is by far the largest that has been struck in that neighborhood for some time, according to reports from the camp. Mr. M. N Davidovich and Mr. Leslie, president of the newly incorporated oil well drilling company, have been very active for several weeks in preparation for the drilling of the oil well near Elgin and Sonoita. Mr. Davidovich is a well known San ta Cruz county resident, who formerly was in the cattle busi ness in the Parker Canyon coun try. The gentlemen are very enthusiastic and optimistic over the prospect for a good oil well at the place selected for drilling the test well. T. B. Titus, who has the con tract for the valley road near and including the "red" hill, has finished the work of cutting, filling and grading, and, with some surfacing and finishing touches the road will be in first class shape, it is hoped. There is a stretch of the road yet to be made which will make a new road from Patagonia to the top of the red hill. The part on which no work has been done has not been surveyed, accord ing to report, but it should be put in as good condition as the balance of the road, so there will be no bad parts on the way from Patagonia to the San Rafael valley. THE LABOR SITUATION. The exaggerated reports re garding the employment situa tion in the various camps has led to a great influx of unskilled labor into many of the camps with the effect of increasing the number to be cared for by chari ty. It is unfortunate that such reports go out and it has been wondered if some cities have not been using this means of clearing their own cities of the unemployed. Few camps re port any need of men and only then for skilled men along me chanical lines. Prospector. NO GENERAL STRIKE CAN WIN Wage agreements in anthra cite and bituminous coal fields expire for the first time on the same day, March 31. The United Mine Workers have long been waiting for this dual expiration date as an opportun ity to win the greatest victory in history of organized labor. Those who are familiar with the situation feel that next April will witness the greatest labor disturbance in many years. If the miners strike April 1, as there is every indication they will, limited production will still continue in non union coal fields as but two thirds of the miners belong to the union. This production added to coal stocks on hand, with spring well advanced, would, in itself, break the strike. The greatest danger lies in the fact that the railroad broth erhoods will join with the coal miners in one great effort to win demands on both sides, by para lyzing the country's fuel and traffic systems. The brother hoods are already meeting in joint conferences with the miners Unemployment will not pre vent a strike as the United Mine Workers are led by the most radical leaders of labor organis ations in the United States. They are committed to national ization of mines. In the next two months we may witness the first great or ganized movement for the de finite purpose of nationalizing one of the main branches oC American industry. If such a movement is successful, founda tion of property rights in the United States will begin to crum ble. The Manufacturer. BLACK EAGLE LEASED. The Black Eagle mine, at Har shaw, which produced a few thousand dollars' worth of silver about two years ago and later fell into litigation, resulting in the lessees giving the property bick to its locators, was leased last week to H. H. McCutchan and M. A. Hogan, well known local mining men, who have be gun operations on the property. The location was made by Ma riana Soto and three other Mex icans, who staked it out for a manganese mine during the war demand for that metal, later leasing it to Tom Gardner and C. A. Pierce, who developed it as a silver producer, taking and shipping several carloads of the white metal which netted them quite a handsome sum. While Pierce and Gardner were operating the mine O. K. Franklin of Nogales purchased the interest of one of the origin al locators, who had fled, it is alleged, to Mexico to avoid the military draft. The purchase by Franklin of an interest caused considerable litigation, which re sulted in Franklin winning a suit instituted to compel Pierce and Gardner to recognize hie partnership in the property. The property has been idle for some time, and its lease by Mc Cutchan and Hogan is welcomed by local mining men, as it means just one more active property added to the list in this diatriet. Patagonian. MUST ELECT S SUPERVISORS. Every county in Arizona must elect three new supervisors at the next general election, and there will be no holdover super visors. This is the interpreta tion which has been placed upon the new supervisor law by W. J. Galbraitb, attorney general of Arizona, according to word re ceived from Phoenix this week, says the Patagonian. In the opinion handed down General Galbraith rules that it is mandatory upon all counties to divide the county into three districts, and to elect a super visor for each district. Hereto fore the district plan has been optional. There is said to be intense in terest over this question in Gila and Cochise counties, and, re gardless of the attorney gen eral's opinion, it is almost certain that proceedings will bo brought to test the law, which was en acted by the last legislature.
