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

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

Heavy Vote Turns Out
More Than Eighty Per
Cent of 1'li.ocnix Citizens
to Make the People's
Phoenix east a record vote yesterday
with boards of elections in every one
of the precincts, having all they could
possibly do to attend to t lie crowds
who thronged the pulls. 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.

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:
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.
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

FORT SMITH, Nov. 3. "I sincerely
hope that Secretary Garrison's action
will not make of Arkansas another Co

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

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

WASHINGTON, Nov. 3. Villa has

named as pro isional president of
Mexico by the Calientes convention.
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

Government officials had no con
firmation of Carranza's defiance of
the convention, but they credited it

the same lines received from Ameri

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.

NEW YORK, Nov. 3. 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
