The page for Sunday, March 31st says:
At office 5:45 A.M. Paying off for month past. Indians around all day. Much incensed at having no money to pay off. Boy gives them Phonograph selections to enliven them. Both Alej and Auriliv Gomez good helps. Trial of Higmio Aprais and Menaro Beira takes place before Governor Stapleton at Quasamambi. Two policemen from Playa de Oro take the witnesses up before Governor Stapleton. He is sole judge on this property. Got Camillio Quinones to work this afternoon for him along with Camillio Sanchez. Mr. E. Russell of very great service to Governor Stapleton with statements. Provisions very low. Mr. Moore says if N.Y office has deposited any more money to his credit on April 1st as promised on the 1st of each month - he would pay himself $2000 - and then off to California. This was said in yesterday's talk. He can make these mines pay for he knows how to wash. Mr. Stapleton very good and very quick but does not know it all. Neither did McKenzie, though he was the only man as far as he could judge the only miner here; Boys are ordered up to Quasamambi tomorrow to watch men while Mr. Stapleton comes down to fix up the indians. Very busy 13 hours. 94° Fahr. A long month. Devotions at night.
