George V. Young, candidate of ihc
progressive p;rty for governor was
burn in Indiana, on February lo, IMiT,
where lie lived until he was thirteen
years old, when his parents moved to a
faim in Kansas. Cnder well nigh in
surmountable difficulties he secured
his education in the various district
and public schools and then took up the
study of law. He was admitted to the
Kansas bar with honors, attaining a
perfection or graue not previously
enuulled in that state.
The call to the southwest was
stronger than that of the law office,
and not long after being admitted to
the bar, Mr. Young came to Arizona
and engaged in railroad construction
work. letter he became a fireman and
afterwards an engineer on the main
line of tile Santa 1 railroad. Three
years atlerwards he became the super
intendent of the Williams public
schools and then bought the Williams
News which he published with credit
to himself and the community. It was
he who, when the project seemed about
to be abandoned, carried to completion

The allies, according to a bulletin
from the French war office. have
successfully resisted another attempt
of the Germans to penetrate the left
center between Fere Champenoise and
Vitry-Le-Francois, where ','ie roads
and '."ail ways are more suited to the
French movements than they would
have been further north. In fact, it
is believed that General J off re pur
osely fell back from Chalons so he
ct ni I choose ground more favorable
tor his army for either defensive, or
offensive operations. In this he
seems to have boon justified, fur not
only was the German attack '.'epulsed,
but at Vitry-Lo-Farncois the Ger
mans actually lost ground. This has
been the scene of the heaviest light
ing of the present battle, for on the
German right, which the allies seem
to have got around, General Kluck
is falling back before the forward
movement of the French and British
forces toward Marne, between Meaux
tvnd Sczanna.
A dispatch to the Kvening News
from Tetrograd says the Paissian
newspapers publish a report from a
highly authoritative source to the
effect that there are signs of a gen
eral retreat of the Austrians on their
whole front between the. rivets Uug
and Vistula. The forts of Prezmysl
and Jaroslau on the viVer San, and
Cracow on the Vistula. 1 ver, are the
only obstacles the Austrians now
have to prevent the Rusnian advance.
Prezmysl is a strongly fortified mili
tary camp, fifty-one miles west of
Lembcrg, with il forts and 42,000
men, who are reinforced by soldiers
who escaped from Lemberg and Po
land. That the Indian forces of the P,rit

in the operations in France is indi
cated by the casualty list.

OIIS AND SCOTT
Differences With Organized
Labor, Which Began

' In-
f ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH)
LOS ANGKLLS, Sept. Organized
labor's differences with the Los Ange
les Times, which began a quarter of a
century ago, occupied the attention of
the federal industrial relations com
mission. Harrison Gray Otis, publisher
of the Times, testified at length.
Charles Scott, organizer of the Inter
national Typographical union, told the
labors' side of the story.
The testimony of the two witnesses
regarding the circumstances surround
ing the open break between the Times
and its union workmen, differed ma
terially. Otis declared the strike was
called on his office while Scott in
sisted the union employes were locked
out after they had made a demand for
increased wages. Scot also declared
that unions were tricked into calling
off a boycott on the merchants who
advertised in The Times in the belief
that a settlement was about to be af
fected. "We do not consider that the affair
ever has been settled" Scott said, ''and
we still stand ready to meet and treat
with The Times."
'July once did Mr. Otis refer to -the
dynamiting of The Times building and
he prefaced his statement by the re
mark that he. would pass over the in
cioent quickly as it was "a sensitive
subject." He was detailing the growth
of the paper with the intention of
showing it had prospered under the
employment of non-union labor, and
the cost of the new Times building
entered into the testimony.
"The rainy clay, or more properly the
fiery day, came as has already been
related," In said, "when the first Times
building was destroyed through the
combined wicked agencies of a union
labor conspiracy, dynamite and fire
with an aggregate loss of more than
half a million dollars and the saddest

! The progressives anil republi-
i cans, owing to the fact that there !
j was no contest in any particular
in those parties, made only a few I
I formal visits to the polls, plae- J
j ing enough votes to insure the j
i nomination of the candidates of
' their parties. The way the votes
ran in Maricopa county it ap-
1 peared that the progressives out-
voted the republicans quite hv-
ily. The socialists polled a very i
i weak vote this time. ;
The count of ballots at the primary
election yeste.-day will likely not be
completed for two or three days. So
long are the ballots, and with the
la 6 candidates in Maricopa county
alone, that an interminable time is
necessary, almost, to complete the
count. The returns came into the
Republican office faster than any
where else in the city, but they were
at that slower than at any 4jther
election ver held in the state. 1 The

the polls until daylight in the ('in

GREAT BATTLE
EAST OF PARIS
Engagement Which is Pro
ceeding Outside French
Capital, According to Mili
tary Authorities, Most
Important of Campaign
ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH
PARIS. Wednesday, Sept. 9. The
battle which is proceeding to the east
of Paris appears to be the mist im
portant and most stubbornly fought
combat of the campaign. Mjlitary
authorities decline to give any indi
cation of the- number of men en
gaged, but hundreds of thousands are
participating on both sides. Accord
ing to those in a position to obtain
authentic information the casualties
have been so great the Germans have
requested tin armistice of twent.v
four hou.'s. The armistice was re
fused with the response: "We wilf
grant you that much time to get out
of France."
The fighting was declared to be
favorable to the allies.
An official communication issifled
r.t the war office shows that tte
German wing, while retreating be
fere the allies, offered the sterne.sV
resistance, delivering several fierce
but .unsuccessful counter attacks.
Fighting today extended along both
the Ourcq and Marne rivers. In the
latter region the British forces have
engaged in strong offensive in the
undulating country. The progress of
the allies has been exceedingly dif
ficult. A sergeant of infantry wounded in
the engagement near Laferte Gauch
er, says:
"I heard cannonading from Friday
evening. Saturday night we received
an order to retire, but during the
night advanced again and took a po
sition on the hillside. E.f.rly Sumlay
morning tried to turn to oar left. W'c
were ordered to hold them until the
troops around Meaux had pushed
back tTe Germans there.
"At noon the enemy commenced to
retire in disorder toward the east.
They rallied, however, to the north of
