SEEKS RE-ELECTION. Hon. James L. Ed wads of Yuma, member Q f the Second legislature, announces in this week's issue of The Post that he is a candidate for the nomination of state representa tive at the Democratic primary elec tion to be held Sept. 12. During the last legislature air. Eld wards made a good record and was ever alert to the needs of Yuma county. During the three sessions of the house he served faithfully on the following committees: Good roads, Appropriations, Suffrage and Elec tions, Agricultural and Irrigation and Corporations. Rio graphically, it may be stated that James L. Edwards was born am Hamilton county, Texas, thirty years ago the 26th day of the month. He was raised on a farm and secured a j good, practical education in the com , tmion schools of his county, a brief ! term at the Howard Payne College ! of Brown wood, and by his own hard : efforts. After reaching years of ma j turity he was a traveling salesman j for three years. In 1968 he located jin Yuma, just in time to take an inter ! esit in the last territorial election. ! From that time until the present he has made this county his home, first ias ,a farmer, later as a real estate dealer. CAN'T AGREE ON SLATES. Democrats generally have been haw ing a lot of fun with local leaders of the Republican faith because of the latter's effort to fix up a slate for the approaching primaries. About half a dozen attended a caucus last Friday nighit, but the “Pnogreessdves” wanted most of the honors and it is said the standpatters kicked over the traces. At any rate a full county ticket wias not agreed upon, presum ably for the reason that nearly ail those that are registered as Republi cans wlant the honors, and there be ing two or three more registered there are offices makes It very dif ficult to satisfy the “hungry horde.’’ —Yumja Examiner. ',' 4 - RUSSIAN DRIVE CONTINUES. The Russians, after a considerable period of inactivity in the Carpa thians, are moving aggressively against the Teutonic forces there. Following the taking of Jablonitza, one of the chief gateways to Hung gary, they have captured a series of heights west of Vorokhta and Ardze moy. Russian captures of prisoners from June 4to Aug. 12 are officially re ported by Petrograd to have totaled : more than 385,000 mien. 5,000,000 PRISONERS. Dir. John R. Mott of the Y, M. C, A. organization says there are' more than 5,000,000 prisoners of war in the various detention camps j of Europe. Os this vast number j Germany holds more than one-third, or 1,750,000; Russia is next with 1,500,000. and Austria ~ third with 1,000,000, followed by Flrance, Italy, Great Britain and Turkey. He finds that all of the prisoners are treated as well as the armies of the coun tries which are holding them. Rus sia’s prisoners are increasing rapid ly, and in the recent big drive, , he sayis, more than 400,000 were added to the camps. In six weeks 230,000 passed through Keiv. This shows only one phase of the wastage of war, but it is startling nevertheless. WANTED: YOUNG MiBN WITH NERVE.

BUSH’S FERRY Prompt* Service EVERY HOUR IN THE DAY WE AIM TO PLEASE GASOLINE, DISTILLATE AND OIL WHOLESALE AND RETAIL REGISTRATION CLOSES SEPT. 1 INCLUDING SATURDAY, AUG. 12, 2,132 HAVE REGISTERED SINCE I BOOKS WERE OPENED FIFTEEN WEEKS AGO. » The registration books throughout Yuma county will close September 1, and Will remain closed until after the primary election, which is to be held on September 12. If you desire to vote at the primary election it is es sential that you register now'. During the fifteen weeks that the registration books have been open 2132 have registered in the county, and 127 in the Parker precinct. These figures are up to August 12. If is expected that at least 500 will register between now and the date of closing the books on September 1. The number already registered com pares favorably with the registration of 1914, the previous one. On Au gust 28, 1914, a total of 2,528 names appeared on the books. ' For the 1916 registration to show a number equal to the 1914 record when the hooks on Septemtepr 1, an average of '25 per day must register from this time forward. The average for the past number of weeks has not reached this figure, but it is thought the. last week before the first closing of the books will greatly increase this aver age, and that more names will appear on the register for the first period of this registration than two years ago. Politically the registration list is divided as follows: Democrats, 157i2; Reepublic&ns, 406; Socialists, 97; Progressives, 15; no party, 22; non partisan, 7; independent, 6; Pro hibitionists, 3; Progressive Republi cans, 2; none, 2. In the figures given above there is every indication that the Democratic majority in Yuma county this year will be the largest, in the history of the county. COLONEL BOOSTS PARKER. Supervisor J. K. Shanssey and C. M. Hiindtaian returned Monday even ing from a trip to Parker on road business, having made the trip in the county car. Mr. Shanssey was very much impressed with the mining ac tivity in the northern pant of the county. He said yesterday that Par ker wins the making of one of the best towfns in the whole section of country where it is located, and that already evidence of a more substan tial growth than heretofore were prolific. The thing he thinks neces sary to give the tow r n the greatest impetus in its history is for it to get out of the Indian reservation. He says all over the northern part of Yuma county the mining activity is simply wonderful. # New properties are not, only being opened up but old properties which have long remained dormant are- being developed and turning out mineral wealth that is even a surprise to the most optimis tic. He also spoke of Bouse, and said in that country there was also evi dence of increased prosperity.—Yu ma Sun. SETTLEMENT IN SIGHT.
