More than a million books have been sent over seas, but millions more must be sent. INSURANCE PAID ON BURNED DEL RIO PLANT (From Thursday's Daily) The city of Prescott yesterday re ceived a check for ?5,000 which rep resented the amount of the insurance policy which was carried on the Del Rio municipal Dumping plant, which was destroyed by' fire several weeks ago. According to Mayor Heap, this amount will fully cover the loss oc casioned by the blaze, by reason of the fact that the huge pumps were not damaged to any great extent by thc fire and were put back into operation in about two weeks after the fire. The main item of the city's loss was one large motor, which was pretty badb wrecked, and the build ing, which was also a total wreck. Electrical experts who have inspect ed the big motor, state that it may be possible to rewind it and thus put it back in good running order again. Tf tliic rnn Vi Hnnp flip nillOllnt of the loss may not greatly exceed the cost ot the building, tuc motor was valued at about 1.100. Fortunately the heat of the fire was not sufficiently great to cause any 4lm minintti(r mnrhlnprv to be 111 JHIIIIJJiHK ............ -j -warped out of line, and the only re pairs necessary to rcnammaic u was new babbitting all the way around.

The gov ernor of Trieste has handed over the cornwipit atfa-rs to the committee of action, composed of socialists, na tional liberals and Sloaks. CAPT. MITCHELL ST. MIHIlL til (From Sunday's Daily.) Captain E. J. Mitchell, a member of the 91st Division, A. E. F., has been right in the thick of things on the Western Front, according to a letter recently received by his wife, who is now a resident of Los Ange les. Capt. Mitchell has been under fire since September 11th. The divi sion to which the Prescott officer is attached has the distinction of be ing the largest division in point of stature among the American army units now in France. When the men were outfitted, the large sizes in the run of uniforms were soon exhaust ed, and calls had to be made to the eastern cantonments for more of the extra-size garments. On June 26th, Capt. Mitchell was the only captain selected from his regiment in the 363rd infantry to attend the officers' school of instruction in France. And after creditably finishing his course. lie was sent oacK 10 ms regiment anu took part in the big drive which Gcn Pcrshing launched in the St. Miln'el sector. Through the courtesy of Mrs. Mitchell, the officer's wife, the Journal-Miner is permitted to copy as fol lows: "Thank you for your letters just received here 'way off in the woods in France. I sent you a short note several weeks ago saying that I was leaving for the front. Well, ever since we have been on the march, inarch, march by night and hiding in the woods by day so that the en emy airplanes could not sec us. In a few days you will have read all about what we have been doing and where I am. "In our present position we're hid ing in the woods with big shells fly ing spasmodically over us. We have also had some gas alarms. The night before last, a German airplane flew ncht over my tent and tired its ma chine gun at some horses which were picketed about :0 yards away, but we arc getting used to such things by this time. Some of the dug-outs which arc occupied by some of our troops, are quite comfortably fur nished, and have electric lights, etc "Just now the bochc is shelling some roads in our rear where they think some of our troops arc, and the shells arc whistling right over my head. I found some forget-me-nots in a little stream (the coldest water you ever saw here) when I was look ing for a pool in which to bathe. I am enclosing the flowers, as they are like those you have back home. It has startcd.to rain, so I have to come into my tent and am all doubled up on top of my clothes, covers, etc.. so you may have trou ble in reading this from this point on. (BANG! There goes another shell right close.) You can t realize the dititcuitics the boys go through over here. Long marches' with back-breaking packs, blistered feet and short rations, just as we have at present short of cigarettes and water. None of the water in France is fit to drink until it has been chlorided. We often have to sleep in rat-infested billets, etc, etc, but under the most adverse con ditions, the spirit is wonderful. The men arc all obedient and willing, even eager to do and perform any thing that is asked of them, notwith standing the privations involved. hen wc get through with this drive, will write more fully. . In the mean time, don t worry, as no news is ood news. "NED." JEWS ACTIVE IN BEHALF OF THE SOLDIER BUYS I (From Sunday's Da'lv) Regardless of war conditions and whether or not peace will come, it will be absolutely necessary for the work which is being done by the seven great agencies, making up the United War Work campaign, to have at their command sufficient means to carry on their work. The American soldiers and sailors must be cared for and these agencies have been of ficially designated by the war de partment to carry on their particular branch of the work. An overseas doctor serving with the Y, who re cently visited Prescott stated that rc- lardless of when peace might conic, that it would take from two to five years before the soldiers and sailors could be returned to their homes. There will still be work to 'be done in chaotic Europe by the American soldiers and sailors. While they arc doing this, it is of paramount im portance that they receive the best that is possible under the circum stances and through the organiza tions which make up the United War Work campaign, this will be given to our men. Manv questions have been asked with respect to the work of the Jew ish Welfare Board. This board is a "win the war" organization helping the United States government ' to build up the morale of more than 100,000 Jewish men in the army and navy. It is a national body ex onerating with and under the super vision of the war department com mission on training camp activities, having been created in the spring of 1917 by the joint action of represen tatives from some ten or twelve na tional Jewish organizations, in order to meet the emergencies precipitated by the war. It docs its work in camp by sending trained workers to camps, cantonments, forts and naval train ing stations tq provide for the rec reational and spiritual needs of all men in uniform. There are more than 2P0 workers in the various camps including rabbis, teachers, -ofal vir-rkcr-. and prrtfc--ton.il and business nir-n. Buildings with auditorium-, rest and writing rooms, WA N THE libraries with English, Yiddish and Hebrew literature, victrolas, pianos, .etc.. have been erected. Is repre scntatives perform a variety of per sonal services for the men, visiting them in the hospitals, barracks and guard houses. Classes in English, history. Hebrew, current events, etc., have been organized. By co-opcrat- mg with other agencies, it arranges for concerts, theatrical and minstrel shows, patriotic celebrations, lec tures, debates, etc. Religious servi ces are conducted under its auspices. The Jewish Welfare Board has branch organizations in over one hundred and fifty cities, which have established community centers for soldiers and sailors, containing rest, reading and social rooms, sleeping quarters, baths, etc. At the present time, fifty buildings are being erect ed and more arc continually being authorized. The work of the board docs not conflict or duplicate the work of the Y. K. of C War Camp Community Service, or other similar agcitcics. It has a place of its own in camp life, stepping in where the other agencies would be less effect ive and it works with the Y. K. of C and other welfare agencies making the Jewish contribution to the larger welfare program of the country. Dr. John R. Mott, Director Gen eral of the Unite War Work cam paign says; "The mosj distinctivfc vital function of the Jewish Welfare Board is the safeguarding and de veloping .of the religious life and conviction of the Jews. This cannot be done by any other organization or worker. It is a matter of utmost im portance, and fully justifies the de veloping and carrying out of a pro gram to make it possible." The Jew ish Welfare Board itself vigorottsly opposcs any attempt at segregation. Its aim is, rather, to help the Jew ish boys to adjust themselves to un derstand and sympathize with their Gentile brothcrs-in-arms and to be in turn, understood by them. The work of this board has been ex tended overseas Headquarters have been established in Paris, and a special commission" has iust returned from France with recommendations as to how the organization can ren der the most effective service and their suggestions have been received by the executive committee. An overseas force of over 100 men is now being recruited. At the present time there are eight Jewish chap lains in the service, seven in the army and one in the navy. Six have already been sent overseas and others will follow shortly. Twenty-five additional chaplains arc soon to be appointed, having been recommended by the Jewish Welfare Board to the war department The Jewish Welfare Board has co-ordinated all the activi ties of all Jewish organizations do ing welfare work in the camps. Its administrative council, now being formed, will represent all sections- of the country and all elements and groups of Jewish life in America. Every mail brings letters to their headquarters from the boys, "not only Jews, but Protestants and Catholics in service who have high praise for its work. METAL COUNTIES LEAD STATE IN LOW PRICES (From Sunday's Daily) It is true that, the mining counties of the state have taken the lead in endeavoring to assure the public of fair prices. Their interest in keop ing dissatisfaction at the minimum, in providing the most that is possible to give to their people by way of enabling them to remain at work in the production of the all-important war metals has, of course, provided a larger incentive than has been brought home to some other coun ties. The fact remains that thev have accomplished much, acting inde pendently, and that a great deal of it can well be emulated generally. There is in mind the fact that Hay den has been on a cash basis for a year, and that its people and mer chants arc much better off in conse quence; that A jo has had a co-operative company store making dividend returns that materially decrease tile cost of living; that Globe-Miami have cash and no free delivery plans, and have abolished solicitors, with the result of decrease in costs of living expenditures; that Superior and Ray managements impressed upon the merchants effectively that profiteer ing would result in stores operating on a cash basis; that the mining com pany stores in Bisbce, Clifton and Douglas have kept prices on a nomi nal profit basis in those communities. The recent announcement that the stores of the Phelps Dodge Mercan tile Co: in Bisbce, Lowell, Warren, Douglas and Morcnci were no longer to collect store accounts through thp company payroll has been another step towards chancing to a cash basis and permitting of lower prices. Mercantile stores in mining camps have a particularly hard row to hoc, due to the fact that it is impossible for them to keep the wage scale of their employees on a par with the wages of the mining companies operating in the vicinity, without raising prices to an abnormally high level, and every effort that can be made to keep down the number of employees by the use of cash stores, non-delivery systems and the abolish ing of solicitors, means a reduction in prices. DEATH REPORTED (From Sunday's Daily) ) Samuel Chadwick, who got aboard the train at Hillside last week, suf fering with a mild attack of influ enza, going to Phoenix for treatment, is reported to have "died three days later. He had located mines near Date creek siding, and it is stated was in noor health. He came from Marysvillc, Cal., and was aged about 55 years. PROSECUTIONS DUE SOON WXSimXGTON. (Nov I.

The following letter has been re ceived from France by Mr. and Mrs. S. W. Holder, of Prescott, and will be read with pleasure by the many friends in this county of the writer, Sergeant C A. Johnson, of the artil lery arm. He says: "Have not had time to cither write or get my mail from Prescott, as wc have been hitting the high places for the past month. I was rarin' to get in action, and believe me, have had enough ol the rough work to satisfy my curiosity. In fact we have been in the last big drive for the past month, and now wc are in camp for a short time. This place was in Ger man hands a few days ago, in fact it had been theirs since the war start ed. I won't exaggerate and just lis ten. I wish you could sec this dug out. It was a sort of artillery em placement just back of the. trenches, and talk about the comforts of a home, the Hun surely had them here. These dugouts arc built of concrete, with hot and cold baths. There were pianos and upholstered furniture, in fact everything for a neat and cozy home. We all verc dazed with the splendor of the scene. On one of the doors of a dugout was carved the fol lowing: "Gott Mit Vus, 1914-1917." I guess thev think that "Gott" quit them in 1918.. "Here the Hun was taken by a complete surprise and they didn't have time to take away anything large or small. It was a scoop and thev took to the peak at a swift pace, you bet If I had any way of send ing you souvenirs could supply you with a wagonload. and no two alike. Will bring back many when I return home. As yet have not been even scratched, but it is certainly surpris ing how I have escaped. A shell can come close and burst without hurt ing one, but that s luck. Anv tim hey tell you then are not scared the firt time a noisy shrapnel comes along and goes off, they arc not talk ing to me. But after you get used to them vou don t seem to mind it. Whenever one comes along whistling "Nearer My God to Thce., don't get- excited but duck down to the cround, and d d quick about it too. Lay low as flat as a pancake and when it goes off it's a 10 to 1 shot vou won't get hit with the flying fragments. And believe me. no one can hug the formation any tighter than me "It's some real sport to sec an air lattlc, and have witnessed many of 'cm. Have had the satisfaction of seeing many Bochc boats come down in flames. "This is a hard life, and yet it is fascinating. And while wc all will be glad when it is over, am having the time of my life, and would not 'lave missed this msxiip for the vorld." "Very truly. "Scrgt C. A.

While riding to the city on Sunday afternoon at about 5:00 o'clock the auto in which were seated Miss Alice Rcif, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Rcif, and Donald Bradley, son of Mr. and Mrs. Mark -Bradley, with others aboard, suddenly careened and turned over, with injuries to both above young people that arc quite rerious. The trouble was due to a tire blowing out, and the unfortunate feature of the accident is that where it occurred is .the concrete crossing of the creek near Mercy hospital, onto which formation both were hurled violently. Miss Rcif has an ugly fracture to her left wrist and thp bone protruded therefrom. She is considered to be severely injured, but later (he fracture was reduced and she will recover. She also sustained other minor injuries. The Bradley boy lias a crushed right leg, and was taken at once to Mercy hospital, and whether any bones were fractured was not known, lie also is badly hurt. An cyc-wit-ncss states the car was jogging along at slow speed, and the accident is termed as unavoidable. THESE TWO PEAS WERE NOT FROM SAME POD (From Tuesday's DailjO Strange things arc happening in this war, and th"e following letter front France, written by Erick Eb hcrs, to his mother, Mrs John L. Mc Vcy, no doubt will prove interesting rs well as surprising. Sergeant Eb bcrs is with an artillery battery and formerly served in the regular army, having been honorably discharged at Fort Whipple in 1905, when attached to the machine gun platoon. He rc cnlistcd a,t Douglas about a year ago, and owing to his past military train ing was given a non-com-missioned rank. He says: "Just think of it When wc were on the drive a few weeks ago I was going to the mess tent, when all at once heard a German prisoner in his tongue say: "Ebbers, they got you too." Stopping, and turning around. addressed him as follows: "What do you nietii," whereupon the Hun looked surprised as 1 spoke in German, too. Advancing to the stockade engaged him in conversa tion, when tile other libbers butted :n. 1 then told thent botli that my name was Ebbers, and you would have laughed at the astonished Huns. Thf mof I tjIKcd I Tic r.'ort cxrited thev became, and the Htm F.bber trad to scrapL i.p a relationship, but ! I told him there was nothin doing. He I was very bitter against the Yank, ' and seemed to regret being captur , ed, saying he would rather be dead. I then told him he would have a chance to croak by making hs es cape, and also it would be a pleasure for me to be around about that time. "So now, since that incident, my commanding officer has given me a special detail to do a little under ground work in mingling with cap tives. I have found out some things that arc beneficial, but let me tell you I don't talk, only listen. When thcy say the Hun is not on it for the Fatherland, don't pay any attention to that stuff. They arc vicious in captivity and resolute for the cause. Wish I could write fullv. but it won't get through. Anyway don't want to tell you. Wait until I get back, will keep you warmed up with thrilling things. Am now off the firing line, and have been suggested for a real commission. I l FUND IS VOTED TO COMBAT THE INFLUENZA (From Tuesday's TJaily.') Acting upon motion of Supervisor C C. Stukcy, the board of super visors, at its meeting yesterday, vol cd to appropriate $10,000 to be used in combatting the so-called Spanish influenza in Yavapai county, the funds to be expended where and in such manner as the health officials of the county think the best results may be obtained. While the report of new cases yes tcrday does not show any appreciable increase in the progress of the epi demic locally, and .although similar information comes from other parts of the county, it was deemed the bet ter part of discretion to prepare to actively combat the spread of the disease, inasimich as it is realized that it will probably be a matter of several more weeks before the health authorities can hope to eradicate the epidemic, which, in Europe, requir ed some three months or more to run its course. Alarmists spreading false reports as to the number of new cases and deaths, according to local physicians, have had much to do with- the actual spread of the disease, as the psycho logical effect of fear upon many is said to make them predisposed to contract the contagion, and plans are now under way, it is said, looking to the securing of daily reports of new eases and deaths, from the health officials, as is done in practically all other communities affected, in or der that the local people may be ap praised of the exact situation and the work of the alarmists counter acted by publicity. Since the influenza made its ap pearance in Prescott, there are said to have been about 125 cases report ed, with a total death list directly at tributable to the disease of some 12, which is less than one per cent of the number of cases reported. With the general use of masks and other preventive measures taken, together with the good expected to be ac complished in the expenditure of the funds voted yesterday by the super visors, it is not believed 'that Pres cott will suffer as greatly from the malady in proportion to population as other places of the state, owing to its comparative freedom from Mexi can and foreign population, among which class of residents in other cities the toll has been heavy, be cause of their disinclination to take precautionary measures. Supervisor Stukcy stated that if more money is needed for the pur pose the board will furnish it ARIZONA DOES MORE THAN HER PART (From Sunday's Daily) In spite of the almost phenomenal increase in the production of copper in the State of Arizona, the counts is a whole is falling behind in its production and needs. The produc tion of refined copper for the tirst seven months of 1918 was 1,425,000- C00 pounds, compared with 1.49S.000,- OGO nounds m the corresponding per iod of 1917. Figures for the month of July show a falling off of a.OW.WU pounds in comparison with the June returns. While many important increases have been made, and there have been many new prpduction problems oc casioning much expert thought and careful consideration, there are still serious obstacles to overcome. bcfcJVe output climbs to its full capacity. Arizona is doing more than her share in spite of high costs, for by its increased production it is mak ing up in a large measure for the narts of the country which arc fall ing down. Close cooperation between the operators and employees is, without mtcstion, responsible in a great part for the big results that arc being ob tained in production. The operators of the state arc doing everything pos yihlr to imorovc living conditions, and from the above figures of pro duction, it will be seen that the em ployees arc appreciative of efforts made in their behalf.

BURKE, A FOPULARLY KNOWN PIONEER ARIZONAN, PASSES AWAY AFTER LONG ILLNESS. (From Tuesday's Daily.) Dennis A. Burke, one of the most prominently known of Yavapai pio neers, but since 1909 a resident of Bouse, passed away at Mercy hospi tal in Prescott on Sunday afternoon. His fight against the inevitable was heroically endured for nearly two years, his illness being due to the bite of a vinegcron, more commonly known among the Indians as "The Child of the Earth." a small-sized in sect He was attacked by this dead ly creature at night while sleeping out on a cot at his hotel at Bouse during warm weather, the fangs penetrating his hand and from that day his health declined. The wound for months afaerward did not appear 13 cause him any serious trouble, much less was there pain at the time. After the infection developed Mr. Burke consulted many specialists, but obtained little relief. He came to Prescott last summer for a change of climate, and it was noticed he was rapidly failing, symptoms of tuber culosis being pronounced. The death of this popularly known Arizonan takes away another pioneer of splendid fellowship and an exem plary citizen. He arrived in Pres cott during 1878. He was an ac countant of a high order and was chief clerk of the quartermaster of the military department of Arizona, when headquarters were at Fort Whipple, afterward resigning to en gage in civil pursuits, when he re- " rioved to Prescott In later 3ears Mr. Burke began a public and busi ness career, making a success. With M. J. Hickcy, deceased. Hotel Burke was founded, giving at that time to 1'rcscott its first hotel on modern, lines.
