W. A. MOUER.
Candidate lor Democratic Nomina tion for Governor. Born in Tennessee 1856; moved to Texas in 1871 and engaged in stock raising and farming at an early age. Came to Maricopa County, Arizona in May 1893 and immediately engaged in stock raising and farming. Elected to the Board of Supervisors at first state election' in 1911; re elected to same office in 1914, and was Chairman during both terms and re signed June 30th, 1915 to accept the office of State Land Commissioner, which I still hold. Have taken a great interest in schools, serving as Trustee a great part of the time that I have lived in Arizona. Assisted in formation of Phoenix Union High School District, and served on first Board of Trustees; assisted in organizing Tempe High School District and have served con tinuously on Board of Trustees since. To the People of Arizona: In offering myself as a candidate for the nomination on the Democratic ticket for Governor, of the State of Arizona, I wish to submit to the vot ers and citizens of this state the fol lowing reasons why I am asking for your support to the highest office in the state and my position on some of the vital and leading questions, and pending legislation, which in my opinion should be worked out and finally adjusted to the mutual benefit of all concerned. First — l pledge my support in ev ery way to the President of the Uni ted States in the vigorous prosecution of the great war in which we are in volved to a final and successful con clusion. -1 *m\ Second—l am in favor of and will lend my assistance to the develop ment of all the great resources of our commonwealth for the benefit of the nation and the citizens of the State. Third—l will encourage and pro tect, as far as in riiy power to do so, capital invested and used in the de velopment of our State and its re source*. Labor disturbances in the great mining centers of Arizona in the past four years indicate that some remed ial legislation is necessary to prevent the continuance or recurrence of such conditions. Our country is in need of every pound of copper our mines can produce, and in order to secure the best results, capital and labor should put aside their differences, great or small, and all work for the common good, to the end that our Government be not deprived of the useful and necessary mineral com modities for the successful prosecu tion of the war. On the shoulders of the laboring men and women fall greater and more difficult burdens, all the necessaries of life have advanced in price, and will continue to ad vance, and to meet these conditions employers of labor must realize the necessity of increasing wages in pro portion to the increasing costs of liv ing. Legislation regulating the com pensation of working men and womer is a difficult and delicate problem, but there is no reason why some fair and equitable basis may not be reached, whereby those who produce the wealth of the State will in a greater measure share in its profit*. Strikes and labor troubles being disastrous to the men who strike, as well as to the business interests of the State, deprive the Government of the copper product of our State, which if essential to the successful conduct of the war. With a view of adjusting these matters so that capital will be. protected in its investment, and the) laborer be given a just and equitable wage, in order that he may be able tc meet his obligations, take care of his family and thus remove the cause of discontent and put an end to strikes and labor troubles, I promise the peo ple of Arizona, if nominated and elect ed Governor, that I will support prop er and constructive labor legislation and the administration of the same, to the end that our laboring class of people receive proper compensation and consideration. A just, equitable and uniform com pensation or liability law should be placed on our Statute Books. The present makeshift is not satisfactory to either employer or employee. I would favor the appointment of a joint committee of employer and em ployee with power to jointly formulate such a system of laws as would fairly and reasonably compensate the injur ed employee or his family in case of death, for submission to the legisla ture for proper action at the earliest convenient time. Fourth—l will insist that all public offices of the State and County are administered efficiently and economi cally, so that the burden of taxation may be held down to the minimum, and will advocate and work for such laws that will be the means of bring ing about the often promised and seldom realized economy in State Government. Fifth —l am for supplementing our Prohibition Law, by proper and ade quate legislation, in order that the same can and’will be effectively en forced. Sixth—l pledge my support to the end that the Red Light Abatement Bill, House Bill No. 4, passed by the Third State Legislature and referred to the voters on a referendum peti tion, becomes a law. Seventh—l will endeavor to have our election laws amended and revis ed in such manner that they may be clear to all citizens, electors and ad ministrative officials of the State. Eighth—l favor the ratification of the Constitutional Amendments by our state of the nation-wide Prohibi tion and Woman’s Suffrage Laws. Ninth—l am for a continuation of our Highway system and additional good roads. Will also insist that the Federal Government build a system of good roads along the southern boundary of the State, the same being in my judgment a vital military nec essity for our present and future pro tection. I believe that the full authority of the Legislative and Executive branch es of the State Government should be exercised in the enactment and en forcement of adequate laws for the protection of life and property along the Mexican border. Tenth—l favor continued and ade quate appropriations for the mainten ance of the. Public Schools and Insti tutions of the State, in order to keep them up to the highest standard. Realizing our total unpreparedness when entering this world’s greatest of all wars, and knowing the necessity and importance of specialized training and advantages of same, I am in favor of additional appi-opriations and rev enues for our schools in order that we may give our boys and girls vocation al, industrial and military training of the highest order. Eleventh—As Commissioner of the State Land Department, I have en deavored to secure for the State the greatest amount of revenue consistent with good business policy in the leas ing and sale of the State and Institu tional lands. My report to the State Land Department will show the re sults achieved and I assure you that I feel a great pride in this Department of State, and am in favor of a con tinuation of the present broad con xtructive land policy. Twelfth—Lam for legislation that will deal effectively with those peo ple who in any way hamper or hinder our industrial, military and financial efforts to speedily and effectively prosecute the war. There should be no temporizing or half-way measures. Our soldiers are in the trenches offer ing their lives for a great and noble cause, and we should as individuals and officials see that nothing is left undone and that there is no interfer ence in our efforts to back them up tc :he limit with our moral, financial and physical forces and unsure us a speedy and complete victory. I am heartily in favor of legislation extending the franchise to electors of ;he State of- Arizona in the military rnd naval establishments of the Um .ed States, wherever they may be stationed. ’ . . I submit the above for your earnest ■onsideration and ask your support. Respectfully, W. A. MOEUR. Notice of Election.

M*«t Supply Here Considerably En larged Food Administration, However, Warns Against Waste. The allies have made further and Increased demands for breadstuff*, these enlarged demands being caused to some degree by shortage In arrivals from the Argentine. It is, therefore, necessary for the U. S. Food Adminis tration to urge a still further reduction In the consumption of bread and bread stuffs generally If we are to meet our export necessities. The Food Admin istration has Issued a statement ex plaining the situation in detail, partic ularly the reasons which lead it, for the purpose of centering effort for the time being upon the cereal situation to relax temporarily the restrictions on meat consumption. Experience shows, this statement says, that the consumption of bread stuffs is intimately associated with the consumption of meat For various reasons our supplies of meat for the next two or three months are consid erably enlarged, and we can supply the allies with all of the meat products which transportation facilities render possible and at the same time some what increase our own consumption, in these circumstances the Food Ad ministration considers it wise to relax the voluntary restrictions on meat con sumption to some extent with a view to further decreasing bread consump tion. Conservation of food must be ad justed to meet necessities from time to time, for neither production, nor al lied demands are constant factors, nor can any of these factors be anticipated for long periods in advance in the dis turbed conditions in which we at pres ent live. While the world situation is not one that warrants any relaxation in the efforts to eliminate waste or to relax economy In food, the Adminis tration desires to secure better adjust ment in food balances. So long as the present conditions continue the only special restrictions we ask are the beefless and porkless Tuesday. The meatless meal and the porkless Saturday are no longer asked. The farmers of the United States are responding to the national call to increase hog production. Their In crease, to all appearances, Is being at tained more rapidly. Os more Imme diate Importance, however, are several complex factors which have effected an immediate increase in meat sup plies. The transportation shortage before the government took over the rail roads, the bad weather In January and early In February, the large percent age of Immature corn In the last har vest and the necessity of feeding this corn as rapidly as possible to save It from decay, have not only resulted In backing up the animals—particularly hogs—on the farms for a longer pe riod of feeding, but have resulted in a great Increase In their average weight and will result, with Improved trans portation conditions, which already ap pear, in larger than normal arrivals at market for the next two or three months. The weight of hogs coming to the market for the past two weeks indicates an Increase in weight of from an average of 203 pounds last year to the almost unprecedented average of 232 pounds, or a net in crease In their meat value of over 15 per cent This Is a distinct addition to the nation’s meat supply. It there fore now seems certain that we have such enlarged supplies for at least some mouths to come, that we can not only Increase our exports to the allies to the full extent of their transporta tion facilities, but at the same time can properly Increase our domestic consumption. The response of the public to our re quests for reduced consumption of meat during the past few months has been most gratifying, and this service alone has enabled the government dur ing this period. to provide such sup plies as transportation to the allies permitted. The Administration also suggests that In those parts of the country where the old fashioned home preser vation of pork is still the custom, this practice should be extended at the present time, as It will relieve the bur den upon transportation to and from the packing houses and is economical ly sound as saving the cost of packing operations and at the same time will provide home supplies of pork to last over the months of decreased supplies. The Food Administration desires to repeat that It does not want to give che impression that these are times when simplicity and moderation of liv ing are not critically necessary, but that Its sole desire is to secure an ad justment between our different food supplies and meet changing conditions from time to time and to keep the pub lie fully and frankly advised of its position with the full confidence and reliance that whenever it becomes nec essary renewed appeals for saving will met the same loyal response as in the k£*S.
