Tax Commissioner Reports Administration of
Campbell Cost People of Arizona Approximately ,
$2,000,000 More Than Under Democratic Regime
PHOENIX, Oct. 15. That three years of Republican administration
cost the people of Arizona approximately $2,000,000 more in direct tax
levy than five years of democratic administration, is proveu in authentic
statement bearing the signature of Charles R. Howe, state tax commis
sioner, the statement is as follows:
"Replying to your request of a recent date of the amount of taxes
levied against the taxpayers of Arizona since statehood, the records of
this commission show as follows: Total state taxes levied for all pur
poses 1913, $1,860,510.95, Democratic administration. 1914, $1,812,339.89,
Democratic administration. 1915. $2,270,875.02, democratic administration.
1916, $1,945,026.07, Democratic . administration. 1917, $3,731,707.41, repub
lican administration. 1918. $3.252,GS0, Democratic administration. 1919.
$5,131,348.32, Republican administration. 1920 $4,201,164.42, Republican
administration. Total for three years of republican administration since
statehood $13,064,280.15; total for five years of Democratic administration
since statehood $11.142.040 01. Difference between the two $1,922,240.14.
(Signed) CHARLES R. HOWE, State Commissioner."
These figures speak for themselves and they are paitlcularly signifi
cant in view of Governor Campbell's famous campaign promises before
the last election, that he would reduce the taxation levied on the Ari
zona public.

DETROIT, Oct. 15. Governor
Cox announced tonight that his
campaign would be-fought square
ly upon the league of nations is
sue as drawn by Senator Harding,
in the letter's Des Mo'ina, Icvva,
speech, in which the senator said
he favored "stsyjng out." f
The governor's announcement was
made in a statement replying to that
issued by thiry-one prominent Repub
licans headed by Elihn Root, Herbert
Hoover and others, declaring their
support of Senator Harding.
That he did not see how the signei?
could support Mr. Harding consistent
ly was asserted by GcA'erur Cox. The
governor's statement' said.
Makes Issue Known
"The gentlemen say 'the question is
whether we shall join an agreement
containing the exact provision nego
tiated by President L. Wilson, or aji
agreement which omits or modifies
some of its provisions.' It is to be
inferred that any one wno stands for
the covenant as adopted with or with
out reservations is friendly to the
league, and that any one who Is
against the covenant, with or without
reservations, is clearly opposed to the
league. Senator Harding, in his Des
Moines speech, said: 'Governor Cox
favors going into the league and J fa
vor staying out. It is not interpreta
tion, but rejection I am seeking. I
leave the people of America to decide
the case just as these gentlemen have
presented it. I submit in answer the
spoken words of Senator Hardin;. If
these gentlemen do not accept what
he has said to the American people
then it is past my understanding how
they can, as a matter of ethics, advo
cate his candidacy.
Stand Puzzles Cox
"If; on the other hand, they do ac
cept in good laiih what he has said,
then I cannot see how they " can,
as friends ofhe league, afivocale his
candidacy. They attempt to Justtry
their most astonishing position on the
theory that President Wilson was un
bending his attitude on the league.
On the subject they say Mr. Wilson
insisted on the agreement absolutely
unchanged. These gentlemen, upon re
flection must realize that this is. not
justified by the facts."
Citing the reservations offered by
Senator Hitchcock of Nebraska, ad
ministration leader in the treaty con
test, Governor Cox recounted that
President Wilson had written Senator
Hitchcock stating that he could accept
the reservations "as they stand."

WASHINGTON, Oct. 15. Consumption of the
resources of soviet Russia and exhaustion of the pa
tience of its people give promise of enough internal
weakness to make the position of General Wrangel,
anti-bolshevik leader, most favorable, according to a re
port received today in official circles.
SEBASTOPOL, Oct. 15 General Wrangel's advance across the
Dnt.iper is proving, successful in spite of stubborn bolshevik resistance
afnd counter movements by the bolsheviki in te xlirection of Polcgu
station on the northeastern front. x
The south Russian anti-bolshevik forces have not as yet felt
reaction of the Polish-Russian peace agr?ment (which It has been -sumed
would release soviet forces from the north for action agi
In the opinion of observers, a successful termination of the prt-.ent at
tack would enable General Wrangel to retain his position and resist for
many weeks any new Bolshevik attacks.
General Wrangel realizes the grave dangers aheaft because of the Polish-bolshevik
peace, but has expressed the belief that any mew offensive
on the part of the bolsheviki is months away.
HALLE. Germany, Oct. 15. Addressing the socialist' party gathering
here today M. Zinovieff, one of the four leaders in the Russian soviet gov

and America.
The speaker denied that the bolshevik would use Germany to attack
France, but he declared that if the Germans joined the Third Internationale,
they must, accept Moscow's orders.
Zinovieff's residence is unknown, except to the communists who have
refused to disclose it. t
In his speech. Zinovieff predicted that it would require a generation to

invited the convention to fortunate conditions which would facilitate ne
