This happened on several previous occasions, but the lesson of experience seems to be lost on a certain order of intelligence. At tills time a Californian would be peculiarly desirable :\\ the head of the navy department. and that was the position for which Kniu-lii was considered. Wheeler was urged for secretary of commerce and labor. Thus we presented not only rival candidates but aspirants for two different cabinet positions. This added cross purposes to the tangle and acrimony of internecine conflict. Neither Mr. Knight nor Mr. Wheeler will go into the cabinet. and California will have no representative in the cabinet.

It is much more centrally and is regarded as the only available depot and town site in the district, as it is level and has the added advantage of being centrally located. It is also at the mouth of the road leading to the Cariasa and ElUhorn, where ac>! tivity is now under way. Stockton men have been mis-managing the affairs and mis-appropriating the funds of. the Maricopa Road OH Company, and have threatened and have been endeavoring to force Wagy out of the company by alleged unlawful assessments and delinquent sales. Wagy asks for a permanent injunction restraining Lynch, Miller and Mosher from the management of and the control of the Maricopa Road Oil Com puny.
