Ourannual Thanksgiving will have soon arrived. This
will be, truly, the first Thanksgiving when Arizona can offer
"up " Thanks" most generously. Statehood has been our most
ardent desire and since that blessing his come to us, after
many years of spirited contest, following which our mines are
yielding more abundantly than we prophesyed, our agricul
cultural endeavors are giving returns greater than ever dream
ed of, the precipitation has been most generous and general,
water being plentifnl. the earth carpeted with luxurient gras

ever before. We have a stable and economical Democratic
state government and to make assurances doubly sure that
Arizona will continue to prosper, the state went overwhelming

Five states voted 01: the question Tuesday, as follows, Ari
zona, Oregon. Kansas, Michigan and Wisconsin.
One of the political surprises was the was the way in

Now that the great national campaign is so happily end
ed, so far as the Democratic party and the masses of the Ameri
can people are concerned, it is interesting to note some of the
developments brought to light in that connection.
The total cost of the Democratic victory amounted to $r,
300000. The Roosevelt wing of the republican party spent
$2,600,000, and it cost the Taft wing of the same party $1,
jco.ooo to secure I2 electoral votes, accoiding to the published
In other words, the party with the smallest campaign fund,
with notice civen to the world that no money from corpora
tions would be accepted, and bidding open defiance to bosses
of both parties, came near sweeping tne country unanimously.
With the expenditure of but $1,300,000 for publicity, it was
able to defeat the two wings of the Republican parts which
made a campaign expenditure of $4,000,000.
President-elect Wilson made 330 speeches in the cam

L450 perfervid utterances upon a patient and lo g-suffering
people. In Wi. son's speeches there vre 475 000 words, in
Taft's 215.000. while it required 1,030,000 for Teddy to ex
press himself. Wilson traveled 19,400 miles in the campaign,
