OFFICIAL GflUHT IH'KUGE CAMPBELL LEAD Every Proposition Submit ted At Election Probably parried Except the Work men's Compensation Act Official returns were received by The Republican last night from the clerks of boards of supervisors of seven of the fourteen counties of the state. The changes made from the figures of the. official returns from those counties will not amount to more than ten votes. In Maricopa county where the returns of only 32 of the 85 precincts have been canvassed, there were no net changes. In tho morning an error was discovered in the figures from Alma precinct A Mock of five that had no existence, had been counted on the Campbell side, but later in the day it was found that a Tvgure "3" in the unofficial figures from Jhi precinct was really an "S'. That evened matters. Only Slight Changes Taking the unofficial figures of the republican state committee as a basis, 1ho following changes have occurred: V loss of 10 for Campbell in Pima, a loss of 16 for Colter in Yuma: a loss of r for Campbell in Coconino; a gain of for Colter in Navajo and a loss of 2 for Colter in Santa Cruz. The repub lican commute carried Colter's major ity in Mohave at 3S2, though there were eight precincts unheard from by the committee. These, according to of ficials figures for governor last nigt increased the Colter majority in that i ounty to 372, less than the republican committee had expected. , The seven counties from which The Itepublican last night hail received complete returns are Pima, Santa Cruz, Coconino, Greenlee, Yuma, Gila and Cochise which include four of the Col ler strongholds. The figures in those counties give Colter 13,351; Campbell 11.822. The remaining Colter counties 10 come in have been accounted for in lhe figures already received by the re publican committee. There are yet. to bo reported for Campbell, Maricopa which unofficially gave him 27M, and Yavapai which gave him 25. The most surprising reatures of the i fficial returns are the heavy vote on lhe various propositions submitted to the people and the probability that all of them have carried, with the exeep- lion of the Worn-men s Compensation i v mi ii wan ut t i v ut iiiiiiiiy m'ltaicu everywhere. It was expected that the legislative districting bill would fall be hind in the large democratic counties and that the propositions to restore capital punishment and to restore the public contract system would suffer in lhe large mining counties. Put these propositions, as well as the bills amend ing the land laws, carried in all those count ies. It curiously happened that the close iind northern county of Coconino was lhe only one of the seven to express general disapprobation of the submit ted measures, ihoush it voted for the lestoration of capital punishment. Vote In Seven Counties The following is the total vote on these measures in the seven counties: legislative districting, Yes, 85SS; No. 5693. Kirst land bill. 104-105: Yes, 6.678; No. 5.361. Se.ond land bill, 106-107: Yes, 5,797; No. 5,737. Restoration public contract system: Tea. 6,277; No. 5.727. Restoration capital punishment: Yes, S.902; No, 6,053. Anti-vaccination bill: Yes, 7,521; No, 7,347. STEAMSHIP IS ABANDONED TtOSTON, Nov. 18 The steamer Casca-Pcdia, which has been abandoned in a storm off Cape Race, sailed from lhi.t,city for St. Johns, N. V., Novem ber 9, with passengers and a large cargo. She. touched at Halifax where home of the cargo and all hut one of tho passengers are believed to have been landed and resumed her voyage to St. Johns Friday. The steamer had only recently been put in service by tho Nova Scotia Steampship, Limited. i ARIZONA LEADS ALL OVER-SUBSCRIPTION TO UNITED WAR WORK Maricopa County Has Al most Certainly Raised 50 Pep Cent More Than Her Quota State May Have Won Two Huts Ifeading the entire United States In oversubscription to the United War Work campaign, Arizona now seems fairly certain of having two out of the 22 honor huts given in the drive named after it. The first hut will hear the name Arizona because the Baby State was among the first eleven to reach its minimum quota and the second, if finally won, will come because Arizona will have been among the 11 states which farthest oversubscribe that quota. New York has announced that Arizo na had reached 202 per cent. This caused some quick figuring at state headquarters when it was discovered that national headquarters is still car rying Arizona at a quota of $239,000, which was the figure placed last sum mer. The state, before the drive start ed, voluntarily raised its minimum quota to $306,000 and that figure has not been doubled or anything like it, as the New York report would indicate. However, Arizona has comfortably passed the highest figure asked, that of $459,000. Just what the final total will be will not be known until all re ports are in. The extension of the drive for two days, while many will not avail themselves of the extension, will mean a delay in the announcement of final figures at state headquarters. The drive formally closes Wednesday night and it will be Thursday evening, at the earliest, before all figures will be in and in shape for tabulation. Maricopa Close to Its Goal Maricopa county has surprised even its warmest admirers in the past three days. It was a slow start in this coun ty but it now looks as though Mari copa would add enough to reach the desired quota of 100 per cent with an oversubscription of 50 per cent. It is feared, however, that the county will not win one of the honor trucks for having been one of the four counties in the state to farthest pass its quota. At present Maricopa is headed by Ya vapai, Gila, Greenlee and Pinal counties in competfion for the honor truck. It should always be understood that corporation gifts do not count in the honor truck competition which is a competition of individual effort, only. riowever, corporation gitts are finally j to be added to the total county show- log. With the corporation gifts included the order of the counties of the state in total amount so far reported all figures being only up to 3 o'clock yes terday afternoon when last reports were tabulated is as follows: Cochise, Gila, Maricopa, Yavapai, Greenlee. Pinal, Pima, Yuma, Navajo, Santa Cruz. Graham, Coconino, Mo have, Apache. The counties which yesterday passed their minimum quotas which up to -n i Dwight B. Heard last evening I said: I "From the way returns have been pouring in today from the I outside school districts it now looks r as if Maricopa county had raised : $90,000 for the United Vvr Work drive, or over 50 per cent of our I minimum quota of $60,000. A few ! school districts which have not I-reached their quota during the ex I tra two days which have been granted will undoubtedly pass their quota, and in a few days a full statement of the amount raised in Phoenix and every school district will be published. "The spirit of the people in re sponding to the appeal' for the boys who have won the fight has been wonderful, the organized work of the workers has been superb and those who are on this great honor roll of contributors will, for all time, be proud of the support they have given this great welfare drive. On behalf of the executive com mittee I most heartily thank the small army of loyal workers and the generous people who by their backing have made this great suc cess possible. -0 - Tastes like some fine blend of coffee but, corrtainsmo caf f ei ne" Tikwusually taste of WSTAMT makes many people prefer it to coffee.

There V a Reason s Wonderful Work Done By Victory Boys and G-irls Was Great Aid Arizona is not only over the top for its minimum and desired quota in the United War Work Campaign but the Victory Boys and the Vic tory Girls have also made their quota even though the Victory Boys in Maricopa have not as yet enrolled their desired number 619. The total is 3,944 boys enrolled and 3,120 girls, a total of 7,064 as against a quota for the state of 6,000. It was Cochise which turned the trick last evening when a wire at state headquarters showed 1,044 boys enrolled who had subscribed a total of $3,396.25. In Maricopa the Victory Girls have made their quota of 619 but the boys are still far behind in the game. The grand total for the state in money subscribed by the Victory Boys and Girls is in the neighbor hood of $24,000, a not inconsiderable part of the state's total gift to the great welfare cause. Pima county boys have made the best record with 389 enrolled who have raised $1,869.25 an average of $5.80 per boy. In Gila county 360 boys have enrolled who have raised $1,800 or an average of $5.00 each. In Yuma county 140 bovs have enrolled with an average of as also or a total ot tu. The Monroe, Adams and Grant schools of Phoenix have enrolled 209 boys who have raised $483 and 213 girls who have raised .$305. These three schools have enrolled a third of the total for Maricopa county: In the Phoenix high school 119 boys have pledged $606.50 and 167 girls have raised $645. Last year's record for the high school was 225 boys and $1,168 and 250 girls and $1,253. In the Riverside school 19 boys have pledged $44. The total for Maricopa county is 467 boys who have pledged $1,001 and 688 girls who have pledged $2,225.25. In the state the total number of boys enrolled is 3,944 and girls, 3,120. that time had been behind are Yuma, Santa Cruz, Pima, Mohave. Two counties which have not yet made their minimum quotas are Apache, Coconino, Graham and Navajo. Lagging Districts Hustling There are several lagging districts in Maricopa county which will have to hustle to get over even the mini mum top. However, some of those dis tricts came in strong last evening and it is hoped to have a record of 100 per cent accomplishment for the county when all returns are in. No county in the state has had a heavier handicap than this in the way of influenza. Because of size and pop ulation a concerted action was needed to put this agricultural community over the top and witn lntluenza on every hand the battle against odds was really a tremenduous one. Perfect or ganization alone accomplished the re sult gained. Dwight B. Heard was much gratified yesterday at securing the twentieth member of the "500 or. More" club. One members subscription had been conditional on securing nineteen other members of the club, and the nine teenth was secured yesterday which made it possible to secure the twen tieth. PATROL BOAT WRECKED WASHINGTON, Nov. 18. Coast pa trol boat Number 1092 was wrecked Friday night on the jetty at the mouth of Brazos river, near Freeport, Texas, with the probable loss of two mem bers of the crew. The navy depart ment was informed today that the ves sel may be salvaged. Search is being continued for the missing men. They are: Mack Shock ley, Galveston, Tex., and Tony Baynes, Crockett. Tex. S3 8 lot s II E fill i in hi 8 H P Pi o Pi lot m (si m " SECRET AGENTS T IN UHLSnKS Ten Women, Identity Un known, Will Aid Others In Learning Whether Actual " Prices Same As Published Ones As a further check in the matter of fair prices arrived at by the Phoenix Fair Price committee, of which Don ald Dunbar is vice-chairman, ten wo men, whose identity is to remain se cret, have been appointed by County Food Administrator S. J. Buckingham to act with six others, appointed some time ago as price reporters. The duty of these reporters will be to report prices actually charged b - Phoenix stores. These prices will be forwarded d'-j rect to the fair price division of the food administration at Washington. Any discrepancies between the prices published in the newspapers and those charged consumers will be grounds for an investigation by government agents. System in 40 Towns The fair price system is said to be working out to the decided advantage of the consumer in all parts of Ari zona. Fair price committees are in operation in 40 towns of the state, and other smaller places are governed by the nearest larger town. Comparisons of prices of the various commodities listed are made by an ex pert connected with the state office of the food administration, and in this way it is possible to check any inclina tion toward rising profits. . Hiqhest Prices at Yuma A recent comparison of meat prices, for example, showed thot Yuma was maintaining the highest meat prices in Arizona. An inspector was sent there to study lhe rituation. to determine whether conditions warranted the high i prices; if not. the dealer will sum ; marily be ordered to lower their prices, i In this connection the food adminis j tration calls attention to a recent or i der granting full authority for the en- forcemont ot fair prices as determined upon by the fair price board and ap proved by the federal food adminis trator. The Yuma situation is peculiar in that in other lines many commodities are lower than elsewhere. When last summer the price of ice at that point was under consideration, the manufac turers voluntarily reduced the price five cents, and in other matters the merchants have displayed the utmost loyalty in following the suegestions paid dowr by the food administration, it is stated. "JIKlfTO BE Rather indefinite instructions have reached the state council of defense from AVashington, announcing a new drive. This time it is to be a con certed effort to collect old paper, cot ton, woolen rags, scrap metals and rubber. November -'0 is the approxi mate date set for the commencement of the campaign. The indefinite part of the proposi tion is the fact that, beyond the ap pointment of a committee of ten by the mayor of every city of more than ,000 people, no plan has been sug gested for the disposition of the ma terial gathered. Nor has the purpose of the drive been explained. The mayors of all 5.000-cities in the state have been advised of the move ment, each one of them being re quested to appoint a committee in charge to represent the leading or ganizations of the country, such as the Y. M. C. A.. Red Cross, Federation of Labor. Council of Defense. Jewish Welfare board and women's clubs and other public-spirited bodies. It is undei-stood that more, elucidation of the idea will be forthcoming by telegraph within a few days. o 01! USEFUL GIFTS From the national council of defense has come a list of recommendations for Christmas shopping, according to announcement made yesterday by the state council. It is urged that these suggestions be carried out in lull, in order to relieve the congestion and su perfluous giving that always attends the festive season.

This plan has been approved by President Wilson. ; The chapter will provide the brassard without charge, to the widow and par ents of the soldier or sailor. To other members of the family, they will be furnished at ccst. These brassards consist of a band of black broadcloth, three inches wide, to be worn on the left sleeve, midway be tween the elbow and the shoulder, witb the star sewed on about midway of the length of the band. If two stars are worn, the first is placed one inch nearer the seam. These stars might be at tached to any fabric according to the texture of the garment worn. They may be obtained at the office of the service section, room 23 War Workers builUins. THE NEXT I N AT CHRISTMAS IKE RED CROSS PROVIDES ill lb BRASSARD that s we provided 'way ahead for your wants! CALLED BY DEATH TEMPK, Nov. 13. The community is greatly saddened by the loss of two of its well known and popular -women. Both were in the early thirties and both were victims of influenza. Mrs. C.
