FLOOD WATERS ARE RECEDING Stratford With the organization of a skele ton organization of a club to be known as the Ninth District Civic organization, the district to the north, covering more territory than any other part of Stratford, practically every one of the new voting districts has swung into line with a similar organization, nonpartisan as far as the old party lines are concerned, but with the obvious idea in view of ultimately deciding upon a candidate that will do the best by the district and town under the council-manager plan, whether or not he be Demc ocratic or Republican, as far as state and national politics are concerned. About 5 0 voters from the Ninth, including a few of the fair sex, met Friday evening in Putney chapel, and effected an organization, electing as temporary chairman, George B. Chase, and choosing Miss Harriett Beard as temporary secretary. Work will be begun immediately toward making the organization permanent, and it is expected that at the next meting, to be held on Friday even ing. Sept. 2. that the organization -will be on a permanent basis. The American Legion will meet in regular session this evening. The sewer installation has been so handled at the intersection of Main street and Yongbrook avenue that traffic was not interrupted. One half of the entrance to Longbrook has been completed, and today work has been started on the other half and will now be pushed rapidly north. Jtra. R. H. White of 481 Wood ave- Phoenix, Ariz., Aug. 22 Flood waters in the state capitol building were slowly receding early today, after reaching a level of two feet in the first floor offices of the gover nor and his chief assistants. The damage to the capitol was estimated at ?300,000 by H. M. Alexander, cus todian, in addition to the loss of irre placeable records in basement store rooms which were flooded. Two companies of the state troops werec ailed otu to guard the flooded aera. Residents of Northwestern Phoenix were warned by the sheriff yesterday evening to move to higher ground and a few minutes later the water entered the city, having cut its vBy through the grand canal, one of the large arteries of the irrigation system two and one-half miles north of the city. This canal had with stood Friday's flood. RETOICHIXG DECORATION'S. Workmen by rapid work over the week end have constructed an Intri cate scaffold within the interior of the First National Bank, from which retouching of the decorations will be made after banking hours during the present week. Seymour Wells, it is understood, has declined with thanks an oppor tunity to run in the Seventh District. Ralph Sherwood has been endorsed by the Civic club and will no doubt make a strong bid for the honors, and many believe that he will be the successful candidate. Another men tioned has been Mrs. Harry Wllcox son, who was also a strong supporter of the charter movement, and for this reason it is deemed possible that one or the other may withdraw to give a clear field to a person known to be in hearty accord with the council-manager plan. One of the odd coincidences of the recent campaign at which time the new government plan was put over, was that the expenses contracted by the committee have totalled about $225. which apportioned all around means about $2.- to each of the vot ing districts. Those who fostered the idea in the first place expected to have to foot the bills themselves, but since the successful election, and the formation of organizations in the various districts it seems evident that each district will deem it only fair and right to contribute S25 each, so that no individuals will have to foot the bills.

Evidence supporting rumors that the (Internationalization of China is being contemplated by the powers is to toe seen, asserts the Ti Shih-Pao, a non partisan newspaper of this city, in the American reply to Japan's effort to obtain an outline of the agenda of the conference on disarmament and Far East questions to be held in Washington this autumn. In an edi torial discussing the proposed con ference, the newspaper says: "The American note to China merely said the conference would discuss Pacific and Far Eastern ques tions, no restrictions being placed upon the scope of the discussion. The note to Japan, however, says that America, while unwilling to accede to the demand of the Japanese gov ernment to restrict the scope of the conference, still hopes the American government would be able to an ex change of opinions with a view to reaching some agreement. This shows a preliminary confer ence between the big powers la bound to occur. Why should America agree to a preliminary conference with Ja pan and England, and omit mention of China? Whether this ibetrays the secret desire of those three countries to dispose of us 'in camera' or whether during the preliminary con ference Japan will give part of the spoils to England and America, and so win their good-will, is less im portant than the fact that the idea of a preliminary conference can lead only to a repetition of the Versailles conference, where important ques- . tlons had to be decided by the coun cil of four before being submitted to the reperesentatives of smaller na tions, making UP the assembly."
