Smith's plurality, 745.
This, approximately, is the result of
Tuesday's election in Arizona, bused
on incomplete returns and estimates
(or the districts not reported says the
Republican. Apache county has not
yet reported, but it is safe to say that
Fowler's plurality in that county will
be more that 125 rather than less In
the remainder of the counties the re
turns are more or less complete. It is
apparent at a glance that Smith is still
invincible in southeastern Arizona,
The diminished vote for him in Gra
ham is easily accounted for. It is
found in Gila county, where many
Graham county voters are employed,
either on tho railroad or in connection
with tho government works in tho
Tonto basin. The vote in .Gila has
been greatly augmented by cause of
the activity at tho reservoir site, in
Cochise county, while the result is not
a great deal short of the anti-election
claims made for Smith, there are some
surprising returns. Bisbee and Doug'
las give a greatly increased demo-
cratlc vote. Tombstone, hitherto al
most solidly democratic, was almost
an even break. Fowler also made
great gains at Benson and at several
small precincts over tho republican
vote of two years ago. Smith's great
est strength, was with the migratory
population of Bisbee and Douglas and
with tho Mormons of Graham county.
One of his former banner counties,
Mohave, which never bofore gave him
less 300 majority, has fallen off two
thirds. It is especially notlcoablo that, with
the exception of Graham, the counties
which have a permanent population
that is, a citizenship financially inter
ested in the wolfare of the territory,
are for Fowler. Of the soven counties
carried by Fowler, but two, Apache
and Coconino, have been classed as
republican one year with another.
The figures in the above table are
made up from telegrams to the terri
torial committee and special dispatches
to The Republican.
The count In Cochise county gives
approximately 650 plurality for Smith
The revised figures on Graham
county, with several precincts yet to
hear from, indicate that Smith's ma
jority in this county will not exceed
350, and it may be less than 300.
With three small precincts to hear
from, Smith's plurality in Gila county
Is 327. Tho complete returns will in
crease his plurality to 375. The dem
ocratic county ticket is elected, with
two exceptions. Fisk, republican, is
elected recorder by a large majority.
Butler, republican, gets the long term
A special from Kingman says: Al
though 'Kingman, the county seat, is
normally democratic by three to one,
it gave Smith but 10 plurality. Other
precincts in the county have brought
kins 1433, Hull 1384, Anderson 1379,
Bradley 1256, Biles 1216.
Sheriff Lowry 1784, Roberts 1281.

All precincts in Pima county have
reported except three. Fowler is 160
ahead of Smith, and the remaining
precincts will increase this plurality
to about 200. The entire republican

ful in Navajo, the republicans elect
ing the sheriff, C. I. Houck and treas
urer, F. J. Wattron. F. X. Woods

the regret of all good citizens. There
