' THE DEMOCRATIC LANDSLIDE The -Overwhelming democratic land slide of Tuesday leaves the republi can politicians of the state still gasp ing and blinking. They thought that they were getting away with the j of weaitn Dig line 01 DunK and empty promise? I which they were peddling and they ! the I. W. W. would come marching into the state at about the same time to take over the industries of Arizona under the leadership of their gover nor. But will that exodus take place. Well, hardly. Campbell and his fol lowers will grin a little sheepishly and remark to one another: "Wonder what was wrong? That 'Red' bunk worked two years ago but it fell per fectly flat this time." They will then proceed to go about business as usual with the possible exception of .the Governor. No, there won't be any exodus for the next two years, not even a forced one like that at Bisbee. Workman's lives and rights will not be held any cheaper than those of their bosses dur ing the Hunt administration. There will be one law for all and that law will protect all, equally, regardless or class. Democracy will reign again. stall find it hard to realize that the public did not swallow their line. Arizona has had enough of the rule of the few and will now enjoy two years of rule by the people, thru represent atives who really represent them. How easy it was for the republi cans to blame the democratic admin istration for everything two years ago! They knew they were unfair in this and that it was the aftermath of war and not the democratic party that was to blame for conditions. They did not look two years ahead to the time when the very attacks they were making would come back as a boomerang agfeinst the republican administration. The reaction came alright. When conditions grew rap idly worse under republican rule the public came to realize how they had been buncoed and the reaction was inevitable. It has come and all is well. ARE YOU EXPECTINC THE EXODUS? From the charges and warnings which Governor Campbell and his henchmen broadcasted over the state during the campaign, relative to Ex governor Hunt's alleged connection with the I. W. W. one would now nat urally expect to see a mighty exodus of employers headed for other states with Governor Campbell leading the way, some time before January 1st. If the oratorical harangues of the Governor had any foundation in fact, I seems much farther removed from Spud Discing- Weather Again The election went off to suit the great majority of the farmers as is attested by the heavy vote which Ex governor Hunt polled in all the coun try districts. Along with that and, no doubt, largely as a consequence the weather has warmed and cleared and the farmers are again busy digg ing spuds. " For awhile it looked as tho the loss in spuds was going to be extremely heavy due to the sudden cold weather, but the prospect is a' little more encouraging at present. However it is November, and even a democratic administration cannot be expected to hold off cold weather for long at this time of year so it be hooves the farmer to get busy and dig as never before if they are to save the potatoes that are still in tho ground. o FOURTH ANNIVERSARY OF ARMISTICE DAY After a term of enjoying the bene fits of peace and with the terrible world conflagration of war subdued to occasional small outbursts here and there where the dying embers still possess enough life to be whip ped into small blazes by a cross wind ; it seems hard to realize that only four short years have lapsed since hatred, famine, pestilence and war held all humanity in their fell embrace. Some way that horrible human cataclysm us than by the span of a few short years Yet it was but four years ago that two millions of our sons battled on foreign soil to keep back a foe whose ambition it was to hold the entire world under his iron rule. The flower of our nation faced torture, maiming and death that free government might ouivjvc uut democracy might en dure. The defense of the rights of free men called for the sacrifice of America's sons and American moth erhood yielded the human sacrifice sorrowfully, though willingly. And democracy endured. The op pressor was driven back and 3ubdued. Our sons turned the tide of war and civilization triumphed ! Yet some there are "who ask, "Did it pay?", "Was it worth the cost? America alone made the sacrifice purely for humanity's sake her own humanity included. America alone, asked no part in the spoils of war. We fought that the despoiler's hand might be stayed before it reached our , shore, to be sure, but we fought also to wrest that hand from its hold upon nations already in its grasp to save Belgium, to repay France; and that free nations might survive and de mocracy endure. Our help turned the tide and crushed the despoiler. We ask no more. It seems a little hard that our Al lies of yesterday should now revile I us, declaring that we are "dollar mad"; that we fought only to save ourselves; that our sacrifice wa3 in signuicani; mat we are a nation 01 profiteers enriched by the war, and that the height of our callousness is reached when we suggest payment of the loan made to the Allies. It does seem a little hard to be heaped with calumny where we looked for some degree of gratitude. But what of that. 'Twas not for praise from those whom we aided, that we fought, 'Twas not that we might be lauded as the defenders of democracy and the saviors of free people, that our sons died on. the fields of France. j The oppressor was defeated, free na tions were saved and democracy en dures. In that is our reward. Our boys did not die in vain. When history rewritten fifty years from now, after the mists and jealous ies and hatreds have dissipated, the great part played by America will be acknowledged by a freer world and a happier humanity. I Saturday, November 11, we com memorate the cessation of hostilities in this most terrible of wars. It is fitting that on that day we turn our thoughts to the victorious contest put up by our sons under arms, that we honor our soldiers living and dead, and that we rededicate ourselves to help bear the trust imposed in our nation that we may lead humanity to a broader freedom and a nobler civ ilization. - ARMISTICE DAY! Can you not again hear the drums beat, the whist les scream and the guns roar as they did on November 11, 1918, announc ing the cessation of fighting, the promise of peace, the virtual ending of the world war! Can you not again sense the thrill of joy which on that day convulsed our nation from ocean to ocean! Let not the passing years dull our gratitude to our warriors, nor our devotion to the great princi ples for which those who failed to re turn laid down their lives. HENRY SORRELL GETS MEDAL. AND $1000.00 (Continued from Page 1) vestigated by one of our Special Ag ents, and I am in receipt of a report from him. After giving the facts due consideration, it has been decid ed, I regret to say, that your case does not come within the scope of the Fund. "Yours very truly, "F. M. WILMOT, "Manager" , It will be recalled that Henry Red- wine died from gas encountered while digging a . cess pool for J. J. Gilson at the Williams Garage. Herb ert Gilson descended into the cess pool in an attempt to bring up Red wine, but was overcome. By a mir acle his foot caught in the rope and he was drawn to the surface by that foot. "Shorty" Ladd next went down, after testing the well with a light. The light burned when sent to the bottom. Ladd tied the rope about Red wine but as the body was drawn up from the cinders which partly cov ered it, additional gas seemed to be freed and "Shorty" was overcome. Henry Sorrell descended into the well and brought up Shorty, suffering but little from the gas himself. It has been suggested that the cit izens of Williams should raise a fund and present to . Ladd as due recogni tion of his bravery. REDEMPTION OF VICTORY BONDS On Dec. 15th this bank will give you cash or credit for Victory Bonds called for redemption on that date.

Unusually cold weather ollowed the storm, tha severest for the season in many years, causing considerable shrinkage of stock. Light snow fell in southwest ern New Mexico improving conditions in that section; according to reports to the weather bureau cattle are re reported good and the water supply plentiful. Condition of stock and range is also reported good in the White Mountain region but poon on the northeastern plateau and at Selig man and Thatcher. Stock and ranqje are reported fair at Douglas, Nogales Prescott and Williams. Crop Progress in Arizona. Arriving nearly a month ahead of average, the first killing frost of the season in most southern and central valleys, that of November 4th and 5th established two records : the earliest frost and new minimum temperatures for those dates. Coming so early the cold weather did considerable damage. This was especially true of the rank cotton grown in the low damp areas; there but a relatively small per cent had opened and a large proportion of the unopened bolls were immature; such cotton suffered sever ly. Most growers in the higher dis tricts report their cotton well matur ed,, more so than average and accord ingly little damaged. The short staple men voice the opinion that the freeze is all they needed to open up the bolls nearly all of which are rine beyond the point 'of injury. The cold, windy weather slowed up picking- operations and in places whipped the locks out of the husks making the picking more difficult. More than half of the crop is now harvested.

One deals with a medium-priced car driven 20,000 miles through the rocky roads of western mountain country at the conclusion of which the tires looked good for another 5,000 miles. The other instance refers to a day's drive through the al- most impossible roads of the county ELECTED!
