I Five I'uints precinct on a final 1 I romit last night a 3 o'clock show I I ed dry by a majority of Tl out ! of a total vote of 920. While the returns in Maricopa coun ty and in the state yesterday will he slow coming in, enough votes have been counted to indicate that the county has endorsed the dry amendmen by a great majority, and that even in the city of l'hoenix which all along had ueen con ceded to the wets, the vote is so close as to leave the matter in doubt until the last ballot is counted. Early in the evening, following the receipt of in formation of his character that the anti-prohibition headquarters both from Muricopa county, Cochise county and other counties of the state, Ned Creighton who has practically been managing the wet campaign conceded defeat, shut up shop and went home. All afternoon of yesterday, informa tion came flowing into The Republican office from nil quarters of the county, and a stream came up until an early hour this morning telling a story of a victory for righteousness in the imper ial county of Arizona. The information was received with smiles of pleasure and ejaculation of satisfaction from the Drys. However, there was no outburst if pleasure on the part of the dry ad herents, they preferring rather to take the fruits of victory quietly find with the better part. ( ther measures on the ballot received attention besides the dry amendment, notably the amendment restricting pro hibition elections for eight years, whic h has been heavily defeated; the gover nor's anti-capital punishment bill which has also been defeated, the legis lative enactment restricting the pard oning and paroling power which has been r.pproved: and the Gila county division bill which was also .heavily defeated.

I" What The Returns Indicate The dry amendment has been carried over the state by a great ma jority. The governor's anti-capital pu-nishment bill has been defeated. The action of the legislature in passing the sections of the penal code, restricting the right of the governor in matters of pardons, paroles' and reprieves, has been sustained. Information from Cochise county is that the big square county has gone dry. Santa Cruz is on the edge of the dry column. Ccconino is dry. Graham is dry. Gila is very close. Yuma is very close. The Imperial county of Maricopa polled such a substantial dry majority as to ama.c people. The anti-prohibitionists concede defeat. Governor Hunt and the entire democratic tiuket i. elected, including Tax Cimmissioner Zander. Smith is elected senator by a good majority. Jones leads the corporation comission. COUNTY BOOTHS I IN MARICOPA WERE ALL BUSY Outside Precincts Show Large Increase in Voting Strength and Poll Heavy Vote in Every Section Count Yerv Slow No election ever held in Maricopa county created the interest or drew out the votes to the extent of the present election. From early morning until late at night men and woman labored at the polls cheerfully and unceasingly presenting the claims of the candidates of their particular choice. The result of this was that there were an unusual number of sciatch ballots which Willi add to the length of time it will take j to complete the count in the heavier precincts. As has been customary for a number of years, Morristown pre cinct was the first to report. Other precincts came in slowly but at an eariy hour this morning while the general direction of the choice of the voters could easily be understood and the re- fult equally well forecasted, the actual igures on majorities of favorite sons must remain unknown until such time as a final and complete count is made. The length of the ballot and the number of propositions contained at the bottom of it naturally took consid erable time from each voter for their decision. But in order to accommo date an additional number of voters in each polling place, additional booths were installed and the officers of the election worked their hardest to get the task done as quickly and completely as possible in the allotted time. While the dry amendment occupied the" greatest amount of attention, there were other matters that were not over looked by any means. The people of the county expressed themselves as against governor Hunt's propaganda for the abolition of capital punishment, and also refused to approve of the ref erendum on those sections of the penal code restricting the operations of the executive in the matter of pardons, parols and reprieves. ' In the accompanying tables a number of precinct votes are given complete, but in a number of others the re turns are so incomplete that it is im possible to give any accurate figures at this time. At 1 o'clock partial returns from Mesa showed the following results: Precinct 1 For Supreme Court: Armstrong 22, Bennett 20, Cunningham 30, Franklin 20, Hayes 15, Ross 22. l'or Tax Commission: Zander 34, Mil ler 25, Parker 21.

All the candi dates and all the. parties seemed plen tifully supplied with workers and au tomobiles, campaign cards and banners, and when it was found a particuar voter had not yet visited the polls an auto and a worker was sent after that one. with the cordial invitation to at tend and do duty. The polls opened promptly at six and it was scarcely light, but that made no difference to the enthusiastic citizen inxious to record his choice, and in about half of the city precincts the first votes were cast by lamp light, and a steady stream of voters kept passing through the polling places until the marshal declared the polls closed for two years more. Some of the pre cincts in Phoenix polled particularly heavy votes, as the record of the pre cinct counts will show, and in some of them it was found that arrangements for the reception of the voters were in sufficient and further additional booths were placed in the polls. Intense interest was displayed in the dry amendment, more so than in any other matter upon the ballot, and both sides worked hard to get out the com plete vote. The fact that Phoenix cast better than eighty per cent of the reg istered vote is Indication enough of the extreme interest in the election. The city apparently has polled a democratic majority all the way down.

E. CAMP PELL HAS MERE CHANCE Not Pcfore Thursday at the Earliest "Will It l ie Known How Closer Contests on Submitted Proposit ions Have (Jone With the count in none of the large i precincts in the state arn where nearly! complete, anil with returns from many j of the small ones relating to only parts j of the tickets and a very few of the j propositions to be voted on, at 3 ' o'clock this morning it seemed certain only that the prohibition amendment had liVn carried and that the entire democratic state and congressional tickets had been elected. Tile management of the anti-prohibition campaign at midnight conceded the adoption of the amendment by a majority of ton. Tnat estimate was based on partial rot urns, generally from the larger towns, with the ex ception of l'hoenix, which it had been expected would vote heavily against the amendment. These figures will probably be increased when the coun try precincts throughout the stale have been heard from. The concession of a "dry" victory was made when a little before mid night word was received from Ilisbee that Cochise county would give the dry amendment a majority of L'"i0. The opponents of the amendment had fig ured on a majority of lui'O against it. A peculiarity of the returns was that in n-ariy all of the p-eeinets in this county where there was a we. majority there was also a majority airainst the eight-year amendment which had been prepared by the fielf Governmcnt League which was oppos ing prohibition. It was explained that at the eleventh hour the supporters of the aniendm nt, alarmed at the probability of prohibition, hastened to undo the work th.-y had done for the eight -year amendment. Another peculiarity was the heavy vote for Cameron in many dry pre cincts, majorities for Cameron and Chafin in the same returns and the number of strar.gc combinations of Chafin and anti-prohi! ation. It was estimated this morning that Governor Hunt had been re-elected by a plurality over Cameron of 300(1, ex ceeding the predictions the night be fore of many well-informed democrats, of 10'iu. Kvidently the entire demo cratic state ticket is elected. The estimate of Governor Hunt's majority is based on tiie partial re turns from the partial counts in precincts of this emmy and of larger towns. Smith has been el: the tiie cted over ''liafin. Early in the night Gila county, it was claimed, would give a. majority of .00 against prohibition. But early this morning it was reported that the vote was very close in Giobe and Miami; that it was equally close in Santa Cruz county, and that Coconino county had gone dry. The ballot was of such great length that tiie count will not be finished in some lVccincts until late tomorrow night. In some of them it is predicted that th(' election boards will be at work on Friday. Correspondents in nearly all parts of the state wir-d The Republican that it was impossible to furnish figures, but were compelled to resort to estimates based on the small number of votes already counted. RESULT IN PIMA Democratic Ticket Generally Safe Prohibition Defeated TUCSON, Nov. 3. V ith the excep tion of a few state contests, in which the results are in doubt at midnight, the entire state democratic ticket car ried Pima county by a safe majority. The exceptions are that Thomas K. Campbell, republican, has apparently carried the county, with Zander and Miller running closely. The contest between Cameron and Hunt is close and in doubt, and the t:ame conditions attend the race for the state attorney generalship between Jones, Morrison and Alexander. Cooper, republican, has apparently Iveen elected judge of the superior court. In other state contests, the democrats have appar ently carried the county. The vote is proceeding slowly and the count will probably not be complete before Thursday. There are several close contests for county offices. The indications are that Pima coun ty will give a majority of approxi mately 900 against the prohibition amendment, the sentiment against pro hibition being even more pronounced (Continued on Page Nine) BRITAIN'S FLEET HARD HIT BY THE GERMAN SHIPS OF THE PACIFIC Five of the Kaiser's -Warships Attack Piitish Elect Off Coronel, Chile, and Sink, Eire and Pottle Up Three SUPMA1HNE SINKS IN NORTH SEA derma n Squadron Also hires on Uritish Ouuhoat llalcvon, Put the Enemv Fiiiailv Retreats Pefusing to (live Further Pattle ASSOCIATED PRESS DISrATClll VALPARAISO, Chile, Nov. 3 'Die German warships Gneisonau, Scharn horst, Nurnberg, Leipzig and Ores den today attacked the Uritish tleet off Coronel, Chile.

Four troops of the Fifth United States cavalry at Fort Sheridan, A, B, C and D, were packed and ready tonight to leave early to morrow for Fort Smith, to maintain order in the Hartford Valley coal strike district.

"I sincerely hope that Secretary Garrison's action will not make of Arkansas another Co lorado." This was the statement of K. A. Cun ningham, president of District No. 21, United Mine Workers of America, with jurisdiction over the miners of the Hartford Valley strike zone, when told of the .e.:ision to semi troops. No out breaks have occurred in the strike dis trict since Saturday night. Four min ers charged with conspiracy against the government surrendered today. President Cunningham expressed the belief th.it "action of the government would no doubt be prompted by some parties taking a prisoner from a fed oral deputy marshal rather than any thing the members of the union have been doing." Federal Judge Youmans and I'nited States Marshal Parker declared tonight that though they have not been offi cially informed by Washington officials that federal troops are the only solu tion of enforcing the orders of You mans, that opinion is reiterated by both officials. R. B. Hull, special agent of the de partment of justice, who has been here several weeks making an investigation, said that following a battle, and the running off of special deputies, and employes of the l'rairie Creek mines last Thursday and the forcible taking of prisoners from Deputy Marshal T. N. Black on Saturday night, he had recommended to the department of justice the sending of federal troops. What the attitude of the miners in the district will be toward federal troops is problematical. Webb Coving ton, former state senator, who repre sents the miners in court, stated he was sure the union miners would wel come the advent of federal troops and the disarming o'f all persons in the Hartford Valley. He said the miners would welcome a thorough investiga tion.

It is reported ,to the state depart ment that the- convenion adjourucl and a committee of six was sent to Mexico City to inform Carranza. There are fears that they will meet in Mexico City until Carranza com plies, and there is danger of Uieir ar rest in a. body. Government officials had no con firmation of Carranza's defiance of the convention, but they credited it j because of previous indications along the same lines received from Ameri can Consul Silliman. Advices to the state department said that while Zapatista delegates bad not been allowed to vote in tho convention because their credentials had not arrived, they expressed themselves as satisfied with tile choice of Gutierrez. Thirty duly authorized delegates of Zapata will ratify the selection in the arrival of their credentials, a period of twenty days being set as the tentative term of the provisional president to give Zapata delegates an opportunity to participate for mally in his election for a longer term.

Sweeping republican gains throughout the country, which reached a climax in this state by the overwhelming vic tory of Whitman, and Wadsworth, were indicated in the early returns from the general elections. The heavy falling off of the progressive vote in many states, the return to congress of Cannon, decisive repub lican gains in New York and Illi nois in the house membership and the overwhelming defeat of Repre senative Palmer by Senator Penrose in Pennsylvania were features of the early returns. The democratic leaders, however, are pleased with a triumph in Mas sachusetts, where former Represent ative MeCall was defeated for the governmship by Governor Walsh. It is indicated that the democrats will retain control of congress with ap proximately no change In the senate majority, but by a decidedly reduc ed majority in the house. At a late hour the results in Illi nois, Indiana, California and Colo rado as to the senatorship were in doibt. In Illinois Roger Sullivan, who had the endorsement of most of the dministration leaders, Sec- irt,a1' Bryan excepted, defeated by a plj.ality Senator Sherman, re- I large .ublican, and Robins, progressive. j according to returns at midnight. The triumph of Penrose in Penn sylvania over Palmer, democrat, who was one of the original supports of the president, and Gifford Pinchot, pr gressive, was overwhelming.
