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.

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.
Workmen by rapid work over the

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
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.

Peking, Aug. 22 (By the A. P.)
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."
Last test flight of the R-38, which
