THE AKJLZUjNA HiUf U JSIjIUAin , iumiiii iiiuimu,
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,
TtOSTON, Nov. 18 The steamer

cargo. She. touched at Halifax where

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
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-
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
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.

There V a Reason
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
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
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
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
In the state the total number of
boys enrolled is 3,944 and girls,
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.

yesterday at securing the twentieth

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
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.
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.
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. The advice is as
To citizens:
You are urged to confine Christmas
giving, except for young children, to
useful articles; to use every effort to
spread your holiday purchases over the
weeks still remaining betore ennstmas;
to carry home your packages when
To merchants:

during the holiday season: to call at

through your advertising.
The Red Cross has prepared a bras
sard as a substitute for mourning by
the relatives of those soldiers and sail
ors who have lost their lives in the ser
vice. 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

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. L. Walmsley died at the emer
gency hospital, Sunday night at 8:30
o'clock of pneumonia and other compli
cations following influenza. Her three
children are ill of the disease in the
hospital having been taken down at the
same time- their mother was.
Funeral arrangements cannot be
made until relatives in the east are
heard from.
Mrs. Walmsley was a delightful wo
man, loved by all who knew her and
full of the zest of life. The sympathy
of all is with the grief stricken husband
and children.
Mrs. Elihu Rowand passed away at
7:30 o'clock Monday morning. She is
survived by her husband and son Ed
ward, aged 8. The funeral arrange
ments will be made following word
from her people in Missouri.
Mrs. Rowand had been a great suf
ferer for many years, being helpless and
confined to her bed much of the time.
Last September, however, she began to
improve and her friends hoped for her
eventual recovery. Her patience and
great fortitude in all her trials and her
lovable disposition won her many
friends who sympathize with the hus
band and son in this bereavement.
Returns From Los Angeles
L.. E. Pafford returned Monday morn
ing from Los Angeles and brings the
good news that unless further compli
cations set in, his brother will recover
from the serious illness which called
Mr. Pafford to his bedside.
