Hunt till continue in office. t'n ii. t two years. That is the opinion of the best I ..ilifa d attorneys of the state who feel absolutely . t.nn that Mr. Colter is ineligible, notwithstanding lilim.-iie-s to "assume the responsibility," and t !:!ii;iinln:i; the tlictum. in lieu of a written legal .;r,:on. of the attorney general regarding his elig :.iiit. In the opinion of these attorneys, a vote for Mi. Colter is a vote for Governor Hunt for whom would be no keally elected and qualified siii- This billies us to another matter, a discussion, "t of Hie eharaettr of Governor Hunt, but of the ii' is of Arizona. Tile Republican lias never partici i'il in the personal and violent assaults upon the c..crnoi-. it lias not questioned his sincerity, honesty i loalty. but has very thoroughly questioned his illiquid, d 7.. al and has felt that the influence excr :. I oxer him by radical and sinister advisors has n, of the Rovernor a decidedly dangerous force in 'i v.lopin? class hatred and misunderstanding. We believe a large majority of the fair minded, ! ir thinking people of this state are tired of the i roEram for which Governor Hunt stands and are irvc us for a new era in Arizona of industrial co- ist.on between tile laboring group and the employ- cioup. b.is 'd on enlightened, just and progressive "' i i, -: that Governor Hunt is largely responsible for la-k of this co-operatton we firmly nelleve. I'.i i-aus( of the governor's manifest efforts to drive , 'fu se two great groups apart, we believe that he has I t the confidence of the citizens of Arizona, and that Kate is suffering- today from that loss of con- f.dcmc. Wrhin the last week, whether or not through iry fmlt of his own, the governor has lost ground. T''c b eluiunents of the libel suit in which he was :i complaining witness brought directly before the i" i -pie dam. icing facts which many had hitherto re c.id'd as baseless rumors, set afloat for political pur i os , r carding the governor's intimate association t I'll persons of criminal and disloyal character. All is now a pait of the record. It may be said in behalf of the governor that he i.'l n"t th.n believe that his associates were criminal, .I'll that at the time of his association with them, .il!y was a vaguer thing than it has since he come. I -1 t the istablished fact is that the governor sur-oi.nd-d himself with people of that class, men and omen who preached class hatred and whose interest t w is to Keep class set sgainst class. Thus there -:e, up in Arizona something that has been called II iitism which has held the growth of the state in i : k. Its influence during the past year has been ' pernicious than it would have been but for the v.ir and the consequent exercise of federal control ver industries and conditions that otherwise would have come under the local government. Th' men who with the mistaken sympathy of the I' Vertior would have maintained industrial disturbance and political disorder have been held down by federal authority; some of them are in federal prisons and tilers are fugitives from justice. Hut within the next two years federal control of our industries will be released and we will again be bit to our own devices. We should prepare against lhat time by the erection of a government in which a large majority of the people will have confidence. It is not enough to say, or believe, that Mr. Colter would give Arizona such government, for whatever may be the result of the election, one thing seems manifest, that Mr. Colter will not tie governor, and the voter now might as well clearly make up his mind hat cither Mr. Campbell on Governor Hunt will sit ii the governor's chair for the two years from the first Monday of next January. A Hare-Brained Political Trick The rawest, most senseless campaign move on rec ord is that of the democratic political managers in nddrcssing the proprietors of the moving picture l ouses of the country, soliciting, or rather, command i rrin; their facilities for publicity for democratic cam paign purposes. The proprietors of the Thoenix houses, or at least, two of them have been informed that a srttes of slides has been prepared by the Democratic national committee to be forwarded to them to be used between the present and the end of the campaign. There re set forth in these slides the reasons why ib 'nooratic congressmen should be elected because the president who is a democrat wants them elected. The committee fails to take into account that all proprietors are not democrats; that their houses ar not conducted for political purposes and, further, that they may not care to offend a part of their audiences by a display of partisanism. This is the insanest party trick we have ever heard of. Il indicates a crazy belief on the part of the committee that the people of the country, with the ,.osillt except ion of small groups of republicans here iid there, have been led by their loyalty to the com-nandrr-in-ehicf of the army and navy to become ermxrats and throw overboard all of those principles .bich have made them republicans. It is a perversion of well known facts and the rec ord, to state that the republican party in congress ias not given the president and the nation at war all tieedtd aid. Only one prominent republican, LaFollette tried to obstruct the war and the bitterest condemna tion and severest punishment has come to him from In republican colleagues and the republican news papers of the nation. On the democratic side, and in both houses of congress there were many obstructionists to our en lume into the war and to our part in the war after we had inteted It. A majority of the democratic m mbri ship of both houses opposed every prrpnred iks imasurc pioposed before we got Into the war. The leaders of the democratic party, the speaker of the house, the chairman of the committee on ways and means, the chairman of the committee on military affairs of the house and the chairman of the senate committee, and the chairman of the committee on foreign relations of the senate, all were opposed to to the most necessary measures dfter we entered the war and some of them to our very entrance into the war. As a matter of fact, a comparatively few of the recognized democratic leaders in congress stood with the president. The powerful influence of the president would not have been sufficient to put the war measures through hut for the knowledge of the recalcitrant majority that the republicans, almost to a man stood behind the administration. It was this situation that made possible our successful participation in the war. All this is a matter of record, a subject of common and certain knowledge. It appears in the roll calls of the house and senate during April and May of 1917. It was shouted in the speeches on the floors of both houses. No democrat of intelligence will stand before an intelligent audience and declare that these things are not so. Hut once the democrats were forced under way, pulled along by the president and pushed along by the republicans, they became intensely loyal. They claimed the war for their own. They resented all criticism by republicans and patriotic democrats as well, of the hesitation, slowness and ineffectiveness with which the great power placed in the hands of the adminis tration was being exercised. And right here is the test of loyalty which the democratic national committee is applying. No matter with what patriotism one came to the support of the president in his trying hour, if afterward ho manifested impatience at the blundering and the in s competence of the war department, at the misinforma tion that was fed to the people regarding our prog ress in war work, he is now disloyal. Yet, it was this impatience and criticism that removed the incompe tents and at last enabled the country to do something beside raise money. No matter how recalcitrant and obstructive a democratic member of congress may have been at the beginning; no matter with what stubborness he opposed the declaration of war and the draft law if he afterward rose in resentment of criticism, he is now adjudged to be loyal. Democratic hope of retaining control of the house rests on the ability to defeat a certain number of re publicans who are candidates for re-election in re publican districts. A list of forty such candidates has been made up. It is not charged against them that they were disloyal to the country, that they were obstructive of the war, but that they were disloyal to the administration, in that some of them joined in the criticism of the administration when things were going badly, and others had voted for measures to place a check upon the power that had been given to the executive; to hold him to an accounting to the nation. If such a test of loalty should be accepted by the people, the elections a week from next Tuesday will disclose that we have made a dangerous advance toward autocracy. Mr. Daniel's Navy Our readers must have observed for the last year or more that when The Republican has had occasion to speak of .losephus Daniels it has done so in a com plimentary way. This has been to us a pleasing pen ance for having so misjudged him in the beginning of his administration. That was less excusable by rea son of the fact that he is a newspaperman. Clannish ness alone should have given us a clearer view pi him. We should have known that he would rise to the occasion. He has done so. While he was making those innovations in the navy, substituting grape juice for something more exhilarating, and abolishing old distinctions that were , humiliating to enlisted men, he was making for a greater efficiency as we have since seen, and was not merely mediling to appear to be doing something. He was removing barnacles and as a result of his work, when we found ourselves at war the navy de partment alone was ready, Mr. Daniels evidently does not share with other statesmen this side ot the Atlantic (there are none but dreamers on the other side who share it,) the no tion that disarmament and unreadiness will guaranty a perpetual pcece. He has just asked congress for an appropriation of $600,000,000 for another three years naval program and congress will be very shortsighted If it should withohld the appropriation. There will be people in the world after the war, very much the same kind of people as inhabited it before the war. They will be somewhat shocked and weary of war for a time, but they will be as selfish and ambitious as the people before the war were. There may be a league for peace composed of the strongest and best intentioned nations, ,but "agreements more often than not have to be enforced. It is for that in civil life that we have sheriffs, constables, posses comitatus and jails. It we depended wholly upon good will we would soon be into a state of anarchy, the strong would triumph and might would rule. Force must prevail on earth and it is better that it should be organized force. For the same reason that Mr. Daniels wants a stronger navy, this nation should want universal mili tary training, service and readiness instead of dreams of a peace which is to be maintained by universal acquiescence. Texas Prohibition We do not know in what respect the prohibition law of Texas has been found invalid by the court of appeals of that state. But the relief the liquor dealers and drinkers find in that decision will he brief. The liquor trade will hardly be able to re-establish itself before the lid will be clamped down on the whole na tion, on July 1 of next year to remain on until the war is over and until the troops have been demobilized. Before the latter has been accomplished, in all prob ability the national prohibition amendment will have been ratified by 36 of the states. The Texas law is said to resemble the New Mexico law which became effective on October 1. That too, will probably b assailed but that would not mean that the assault would be successful. Appellate court decisions are often matters of taste rather than of law. An unfavorable decision in New Mexico, though, would propably reopen the sources of the Arizona boot leggers' supply at Gallup and Lordsburg. A Missouri congressman has warned his constitu ents against the prevalence of Spanish influenza which is prevailing in the national capital. This leads us to wonder why congressmen never thought to pro tect themselves againt a greal deal of annoyance by quarantining AVashington perpetually against their constituents. The Huns are willing to get out of France and Belgium but they object to being tagged along by a lot of hooting Americans, British and Frencn.

LUKE SENSATION 0 F U 1 PARIS HERALD S S MISS KISER'S TEAM The many daring exploits of Lieu tenant frank Luke, Jr., of Phoenix, the American aviator whose daslnnw and dare-devil acts in destroying so many Hun balloons and airplanes have put him at the top of the list of "aces,'' have made him equally famous in Europe and America. His exploits have been discussed and reviewed in all the great newspapers of both coun tries. t ' The Paris edition of the Xcw York Herald on October 3, a copy of which has just been received by Mrs. Claude D. Jones from Captain Jones, gives to Lieutenant Luke preferred space, the top of the first column, first page. This account, which says that Lieu tenant Iyke sailed away on a Satur day night and did not return, gives the impression that this famous avia tor of Phoenix now is missing. But that is not correct. Since tho date of the account in the Paris paper. October ... Lieutenant Luke has been heard from. The account says; "Lieutenant Luke, at once one of the mysteries and sensations of American aviation, sailed off Saturday night, did not return, was set down as musing, as he is known to lie a dare-devil, playing a lone hand and Jaking chances few fliers ever take many times. "On Monday evening the following note was-, dropped by an aeroplane passing over a balloon observation post: 'Watch for burning Boche bal loons. Luke.' The observer was told to keep his eyes open. In ten minutes he counted three Boche balloons which came down in flames. "Lieutenant Luke frequently lands in a field and passes the night sleep ing in a blanket. He flies off in the morning, getting gasoline in any field he happens to appnoach. He is a mere hoy and comes from Phoenix, Arizona." IIS LOAN CONTEST ATTENTION!

OUR SOLDIERS ARE READERS There are at present more than 3. 200,000 Americans under arms, and the American Library association has dis tributed among them nearly 4,000,000 books, of which 3.200,000 have been given by people all over the country, and about 600.000 purchased, the latter mostly technical and scientific books. F.esides this war library of more than one book to each man in the armv. more than 3. 000.000 magazines have been distributed among the men by the association.

MAKEB E GOMPUMENr TO JUDGE FRANKLIN The appointment yesterday by Presi dent Wilson of Judge Alfred Franklin, chief justice of the supreme court of Arizona, as collector of internal revenue. for the district composed of Arizona and Xew Mexico, confirms the rumor that could not be substantiated because of the absence of Judge Franklin from the city. It is regarded by government offi cials here, however, as a fine appre ciation of his character and services. Judge Franklin's term will expire Jan- urary 1, at which time if he does not resign before, he will take up the du ties of the position recently vacated by- Lewis T. Carpenter. The new appointee is in Washington at present. His selection came as a surprise to his friends, as well as to several men in Arizona and X'ew Mexico, who had aspirations in that direction. It was generally believed that a Xew MexicoJ man would be named, owing to the fact that Arizona had the last appointment. o Open Letter to Senator Colter 4TII OF SERIES Phoenix, Arizona, Oct. 24, 1918. Hon. Fred T. Colter, Phoenix, Arizona. Dear Senator Colter: On the afternoon of the 8th day of January. 1917, you and I, together with the other members of the State Senate, solemnly and with uplifted richt hand, took the following oath of office admin istered by the Chief Justice of Arizona in the Sen ate Chamber at the State Capitol Building. "I solemnly swear that I will support the Constitution of the I'nited States and the Constitution and Laws of the State of Arizona; that I will true faith and alle giance bear to the same, and defend them against all enemies whatsoever, and, that I will faithfully and im partially discharge the duties of Senator according to the best of my abilities, so help me God." Page Four. Journal of the Senate, Third Legislature. The binding obligations of that oath of office still rest upon us. Now you are seeking to attain the high office of Oovernor, to which office you are not at this time eligible to be elected under the Constitution. On the other hand, by reason thereof, T must con cern myself in the keeping of my oath as State ' Senator to defend the Constitution, by disclosing to my constituents of Marjcopa County your in eligibility, and showing them that no one of them can uphold the Constitution and vote for you at this time. In other words, I am calling upon my fellow citizens of Maricopa County, each and all, to preserve the Constitution. Furthermore, in the absence of any clarion call from His Honor, the Governor, to the citizens of Arizona to arise and preserve the Constitution in violate and from whom the announcement of your non-eligibility should have long since rung forth in no uncertain terms In the absence there of, I say, T shall proclaim to all the voters of the State that you are not eligible and that they can not, in voting for you, uphold the Constitution. Very sincerely yours, II. II. WILKINSON". State Senator, Maricopa County. P. S. LEST YOU FORGET. "No member of tho Legislature, during tlio term for which he shall have been elected, shall be appointed v or elected to any civil office of profit und-er this State, which .sVuill have been created, or the emoluments of which .shall have reen increased, during said term." Article Four, Chapter Two. Section Five, Constitution of Arizona. PLEDGE TO GET LABOR THROUGH U. S. OFFIC E "Follow the action of San Antonio!" is the suggestion of the state council of defense. On the initiative of Mayor Bell of that city, a meeting of busi ness men was recently held, at which a resolution was adopted that pledged every employer of labor to secure such help as they needed through the United states employment service. This applied to both male and female help. The object of the plan is to as sist the department of labor in estab lishing that section upon a firm basis. o A SEAGOING CANAL BOAT Ship building reduced to its simplest terms is exemplified in the seagoing canal boat, R. L. Barnes, constructed by Captain McDougal of Duluth. orig inator of the famous "whaleback" of the Great Lakes. The completion of the New York State Jlarge Canal in spired the new type of boat, which is designed to cross the Atlantic. The feature of the It. l.. Barnes, as described in the 'entific American, is her strictly rectangular shape; she is flat bottomed, flat decked, and her sides are parallel. The length of the boat is only -5.SVj feet, but her dimen sions permit of a maximum capacity, she is remarkably cheaply made of standard fabricated steel shapes. The superstructure is removable so that the boat may be cleared for passage under bridges. Demonstrating the seaworthiness ot the seagoing canal boat, the K. 1,. Ilarncs was recently caught in a severe gale in Long Island Sound. With her' flat, broad bottom, the motion was re duced to a minimum and the heavy seas, falling on the deck, which has a slight crown and no bulwarks, slid quickly overside, like the proverbial water off the duck's back. inc.

Do All You Can To Prevent SPANISH INFLUENZA Every precaution should be employed at this time to safeguard your family. You can't do too much. Gargles and sprays for the throat and nose are used, but do not overlook the proper disinfecting of your home, keep all trash and rubbish burned and every day go over the woodwork in the house with a suitable mop or broom moist ened with GERMO, this preparation is highly recommended by local doctors as a perfect germicide and should by all means be in every home in the city. Place a little GERMO in cups or sauc ers and place in each room, nothing will help more than this to keep down the influenza epidemic. If any one in the family is already sick, by all means get this preparation and use it freely. It may be the means of keeping the other members of your household from con tracting the disease. Be sure and report any sickness at once to your doctor. GERMO is sold exclusively by Mason's riiarmacy. Second street, and East Washington.
