Practically every frame building; on the beach front was destroyed, .to gether with most of the boats moored there. The residence section on the hill was slightly damaged and a few houses were unroofed. The damage was caused mostly by the tidal wave driven in from the north by a gale estimated at from 65 to 70 miles an hour. The official re cord of the tide placed it at ten feet six inches deep, but many say the water was 15 feet in depth on the beach. Chaparral and Mesquite streets, in the business district, were flooded and while the water has receded tonight they are filled with debris. Under Military Rule. Military rule was put into effect this afternoon. The storm started here Saturday night with a light breeze from the north, steadily increasing In intensity, while the tide rose rapidlv.

WATER USERSTaVOR STEAM LM TO Plans for the Installation by the wa ter users" association of a $600,000 steam power plant auxiliary to the Cross Cut plant near Tempe were pushed another step forward yesterday afternoon at the meeting of the council of the association, which approved the plan to bond the power receipts for a period not to exceed ten years and to ask the board of governors to call a general election of the share holders to secure authorization for the project. As 30 days must elapse after ac tion by th,e board of governors, Novem ber 1 has been, set as the earliest pos sible date cn which this election can be held. The proposed plant will have a ca pacity of 5.000 kilowatts, which will be used to supplement the 2.000 kilowatts available during four months of the year when very little water passes through the canals. Present power cor tracts with big consumers like the inspiration mine at Miami are made with the stipulation that no more th"n 2.000 kilowatts will be generated during the months of slack irrigation. If the 5.000 kilowatt steam auxiliary plant is installed, full rates for a 12 months- maximum con sumption of power can be charged, with a resulting saving to the associa tion. Further action of the council at yes terday's meeting consisted of approval of the plan to spend $75,000 a year ii the installation of pumping plants to drain the valley and removed the un derground water menace. This plan, voted down through a mis understanding at the election of share holders last spring, is assurred of rati fication by the board of governors at next Monday's meeting, and will no doubt be resubmitted to the share holders tor a vote at the same time as the auxiliary steam power plant propo sition.

It is estimated by officials In that office that there will be about 1.250 more motor licenses issued by the end of the year, making a total of 30,893 for the year 1919. The number of motor car licenses is sued last year was 23.905. thus showing an increase this year of 6.988. "Some old license numbers on new motor cars have been noticed," declared a motor license official yesterday. This is not in accordance with the law. and sooner or later those owners will be spotted by the inspectors. The license number goes with the car in this state. In some states it is the property of the individual, but not in Arizona." Andy Miller, manager of the Owl Drug company of Phoenix, rumors and other reports notwithstanding, was re joicing yesterday over the return of Eugene L. Sutherland, who has been his assistant since 1905. Sutherland was two years in the service, and spent considerable time in the big drives which finally broke the Hindenburg line. Sutherland has just been mustered out of the service and returned to Phoenix and to the Owl as fast as the trains could bring him. Miller wishes it understood that in spite of a printed report that he had engaged a new man ager ,he is still conducting the destinies of the Owl. CROWDED ARCADIA STAIRS J. A.

Mrs. Ellsworth told the court that after her marriage in Globe in Sep tember, 1918, she came to Phoenix with her husband.

The decision to extend full water rishts to 16,000 acres of "dry" or tem porary land in the Salt River valley for the year beginning October 1 was reached yesterday morning by the board of governors of the association. These 16,000 acres include land vhich were left off the farm units plota by the survey board when permanent water rights in the reservoir were al lotted, but to increase food production during the war they have been given temporary water service. The present excellent condition of the leservoir, standing at an elevation of 173 feet, had a great deal to do with 'he decision reached by the council, as it was .computed that during the com ing Irrigation year, there will be suf ficient water to supply the permanent lands and the temporary lands as well.

With 1,150 students present, the Phoenix Union high school yesterday morning opened to the greatest year in Its history. For once, the auditorium was not sufficient to accommodate the entire school body, for with every seat on the main floor and balcony filled, there -were about 100 standing at the assembly at 9 o'clock. Although a large increase in atten dance at high school had been antici pated, the officials and teachers were not prepared for such an overflow as presented itself. On the opening day of high school last year there was an attendance of about 800, it was stated. The great gain in high school atten dance is indicative of the correspond ing increase in population. It is ex pected that the total attendance in two weeks will reach 1,250 or 1,300. Normal Capacity 750. The normal capacity of the high school ia 750, A. A. Betts. president of the board of trustees, said yesterday and stated that they were unable to say what would be done to care for this over-capacity. "It may be necessary to arrange an alternate day plan," Mr. Betts said. Freshmen registered yesterday, there being 400 on the roll at the close. Soph mores and juniors will register today, and seniors on Wednesday. There were about 250 freshmen registered on the first day last year, the gain this year being more than 60 per cent.

One of the outstanding causes of the HIGH COST OF LIVING is the fact that the de mand for most commodities is greater than the supply. This condition can only be set right by increase in production , or by de crease in consumption. It is just as important to cut down personal needs now as it was during the war. The individual who practices economy in his personal requirements is actively help ing to restore normal conditions. No other measure of the success of such economy is as satisfying as a steadily growing Savings Account. The Valley Bank suggests purposeful saving as an effective remedy for the prob lems of today. Your account is invited. IH TO FACE CHARGE OF STEALING Ai AUTO The chief of police yesterday received word that officers were on the way here from Colorado Springs to take back J. F. Perdue and William Hutch ins, alias Walter Williams, wanted there on the charge of stealing an auto mobile, which was recovered here. Perdue and Hutchlngs were arrested when Perdue was noticed to be keeping a. very close watch on the activities of a local bank from a point of vantage across the street. His actions were noted and he was taken into custody by Detectives Mc Grath and Crowe. He then confessed that he and Hutchings had stolen a car in Colorado Springs, sold it and that Hutchings had the check. He was watching the bank, he said, for fear his partner would cash the check and not share the proceeds with him. Hutch ings later was captured. The motor number of the car had been changed so that it waa higher tha.n the number of motors manufactured by the company. Both men had waived extradition, and are willing to return to Colorado. The owner of the car arrived in Phoenix yesterday to reclaim his property.

Stephens, secretary of the live stock sanitary board. Already more than 3,000 applications for re-recording have been received. Some of these brands have been trans ferred eight and ten times, and only through a long and tedious correspond ence are the brands cleared up and their proper ownership ascertained. In the work of re-recording the many cattle brands in this state many have been found on which the tax has not been paid. Many hundreds of dollars have been collected- in this manner. Many applications for re-recording are received with bills of sale attached. As the livestock sanitary board received $1 for recording a bill of sale, it is esti mated by Secretary Stephens that if the board is given authority to use this money and the money collected through back brand taxes there will be suffi cient to complete the work of re-recording aJl the brands.
