Big Game Sighted  What are reliably stated to have  been a couple of silver-tip bears  were sighted a few days ago by a  local resident a few milesfrom town.  The animals were sighted travelling  quite leisurely and seemed to be  little   concerned   over  the presence  of - the   "party    who' saw  I Sorrier doubt has  been   cast  them.  At the  urgent   request of many  residents, F. C. Graham, sec. of the  Phoenix Government Rifle Association, called a meeting of that organization and   all   British subjects   for  the purpose   of discussing'the war  situation asifaffects Phoenix.    The  notice   unfortunately    afforded    but  little   time,   but   the   resppnse   was  prompt, over a  hundred assembling  in the  K.P.   hall, which was generously placed   at  the  disposal of the  rifle   association   by the   officials of  the order.  Before the actual  business of the  evening   was   proceeded   with,   the  secretary   outlined   the  reasons for  calling the   meeting  and   proposed  that the   chair  should   be  taken by  William  Delahay, collector of customs   for  Phoenix.      The   proposal  was   immediately.seconded   by   D.  Patterson and unanimously adopted.  Mr. Delahay in opening the meeting expressed his  pleasure at being -  called upon to preside and remarked  that to be a  British  subject was no  mean' honor.     It   was   a   priceless   -  Vft  iV $  tact is left to^'conjecture.  Owing to the war in Europe and the consequent disturbance, in th<j  markets of the world, the Granby Consolidated have followed .the lead  ofthe mineowners in Butte and elsewhere, and have ordered the closiog-  of their property in Phoenix. ���As to the length of time this inaction wilf  last, rthe officials' df the company profess tbe most entire ig-oOraoce.  two_or three   miles, gold' in paying  quantities^has been-obtained in -the  present channel  of the *creek;-but  the older-channel, where the, operations are" now * taking' place passes  apparently  to,vtbe   east ^of-a .small  mountain   which" separates it  from  the^'present''slre'a'fti.   -Irnmediately-'f     , .     . .  below the falls a tunnel_bas been run j it is rumored that as a result of the recent success   of the  for 'nearly', a   thousand,' feet, with a   the reopening- of the property will   not   be   fong- delayed.  horizon in the United States already shows sigrns  of "clearing-,  take a week or ten days before any   authoritative   statem  safety, be given out.  M. K. Rogers, accompanied by his'brother, S. Rogers were registered at the Brooklyn hotel during the week and paid����a visit to the  Granby mine on Friday.

If the report of a well known and  competent geologist is not included  drop it at once.  Ascertain how much stock is taken  by promoters in consideration of oil  leases. ;��� Promoters are given to gobbling two-thirds of the stock in consideration of a thousand or so acres  of leased lands. This means 'that  the control remains with the promoters, and, moreover, it means that  a lion's share of the-profits, if-any,  goes into their pockets without having put up more than a very small  percentage of the cost of the Undertaking.  Remember that it takes money to  drill for oil, and a company that has  not a sufficient capitalization to sink  several wells at a cost of say a quarter million dollars should not be considered.'  Be sure that men of good character and business integrity are on  the directorate. They are the ones  who will have to look after your interests. You cannot do it yourself.  Astertain if the promoters are free  to sell their bonus stock when and  where they will. If sd^drop the  proposition.
