CAMPAIGN The influenza epidemic will not be allowed to interfere with the plans for the great United War. Worlc campaign for 8170,500,000 for the seven civilian welfare organizations, according to a telegram received from the national campaign headquarters in New York" by Major P. A. Oakes, executive secretary of the Southern Department campaign publicity bureau, Wednesday afternoon. The telegram Which quotes Dr. John R. Mott, Director General .of the United War Work Council, to the effect that "the disadvantages of putting off the campaign outweigh any apparent advantages of such delay," follows:- "Major A. P. Onkcs,t-Dallas," Texas: The date of November 11 to 18,- originally set for the, United War Work capmaiign, will be adhered to in spite of the country-wide influenza epidemic. This announcement was mado to day by Dr. 'John R. Mott, Director General of the United War Work Council.- . This decision was reached only after careful consideration, wide consultation and a personal conference with President Wilson and members of the War Department,, today. 'The disadvantages of puttirigyff the campaign outweigh any apparent 'advantages- of such delay", Dr. Mott stated, 'Although health .regulttioris will probably prevent the holding of large mass meetings, the local lead-rs throughout the country can be defended -upon to exercise their best Judgment and ingenuity in adopting plans to meet the changed conditions. The Fourth Liberty Loan was carried to a stupendously successful issue, even in the midst of the epidemic. Certainly the United War Work campaign will not bo adversely affected by the unfortunate conditions prevailing.' . ,t " 'The lack of large mass meetings to push the campaign will leave people more time to read, think and decide,' Dr. Mott continued. "The press will be called unon and will volunta rily lend even, greater advantage than they have planned to do, for a wider use must be made of the printed page to help offset the lack of big' meetings in carrying the campaign, thrdugn to a successiui ximsn.- r "(Signed) LEFFINGWELL, JUDGE A.

The epidemic of influenza is rapidly abating and conditions are much improved in Flagstaff, and seemingly all over the United States. Flagstaff was fortunate in having plenty of good water, a good sewerage system and a general condition favorable to good health, Physicians now say that they believe the worst is over and all needed now is good care for the new cases, and there are but a few of them' comingyin now for, treatment. Care. , More Care Less Scare, And Flagstaff will soon be back to its old healthy condi tion again. Republican Candidate for Judge the Supreme Court. A. A.

REPUBLICANS RESENT STATEMENT NEW YORK. Oct; 27. Will H.Hays, chairman of, the ' republican national committee, made public here tonight a statement in which, he replied, in behalf of his party, to President Wilson's appeal to. the nation to return a democratic congress. In liis statement Mr. Hays said : "President Wilson has questioned the motives and, fidelity of your representatives in congress. He has thereby impugned, their loyalty and denied their patriotism.. His challenge is to you who elected these representatives. -You owe it to them, to' the honor of your great party, and to your own self respect, to meet that challenge squarely, not, c-nly as republicans, but as Americans. I, as , , your chairman, call upon yoji to do it. Calls Veracity Into Question. "Mr. Wilson accords the republicans no credit whatever for having supported the 'war measures' proposed by his administration, although they have done so with greater unanimity than the members of his own party. Despite that fact he accuses them .of having tried to usurp his proper functions. , "At no time and in no way have the tried to take control of the war out of his hands. The president knows that. The country knows it. You 'know it. A more ungracious, more unjust, more wanton, more mendacious accusation was never mad' by the most reckless stump orator, much less by a presidmit of the United States, for partisan purposes. It is an iniHnot only to every loyal republican in congress, but to every loyal republican in the land. It fully merits the resentment which rightfully.and surely will find expression at the polls;. , Wants Antirwar Democrats. Mr. Wilson grudgingly admits that the republicans have been 'pro-war'. Then why does he demand their defeats Because they are still pro-war? Hardly that. No. It is because they are for peace, though not without victory; because they consider that 'U. S.' stands for unconditional surrender as well as for the United States and Uncle Sam. The democratic congress does not. .Mr. Wilson does not. There is the issue clear as the noonday sun. The country will decide. ' "Mr. Wilson wants only rubber stamps, his rubber stamps in congress. He says so. No one knows it better than democratic congressmen. He calls for the defeat of pro-war republicans and the election of anti-war democrats. He, as the executive, is no longer satisfied to be one branch of the government,, as provided by the constitution., Republican congressmen must foe defeated and democratic congressmen must, 'as they would, yield in everything. That is evidently his idea (the idea of an autocrat calling Tiimself the servant;iby. bidding for the mastery of this free people. Republicans Good When Needed. "Republicans in congress have seemed to him good enough when they assented, as they did assent, with highest patriotism, and sometimes against their best judgment,, to his proposals. Republicans at home have seemed to him good enough to send fully a million of their sons into battle, to furnish at least. half of the army, and far more than half of the money, for winning of the war, but they are not considered good enough to have a voice in the settlement of the war. "But Mr. Wilson's real purpose has nothing to do with the conduct of the war. He has had that from the beginning, has it now, and nobody dreams of interfering with his control. He wants just two things. One is full power to settle the war precisely as he and his sole, unelected, un-appointed, unconfirmed personal adviser may determine. The other is full power as the 'unembarrassed spokesman in affairs at home,' as he actually demands in his statement, to reconstruction peace times, the great' industrial affairs of the nation in the same way, in unimpeded conformity with whatever socialistic doctrines, whatever unlimited government ownership notions, -whatever hazy whims may happen to posseshim at the time; but first and above all, with absolute commitment to free trade with, all the world, thus giving to Germany, out of. hand, the fruits of a victory greater than she could win by fighting a hundred years. A republican congress will never assent to that. Do you want a congress that will? Germany does. , Wants Republicans to Surrender. "Mr. Wilson forced the republican party to lie down f or fight. I say fight! Answer with your votes ! "Mr. Wilson is for unconditional surrender yes, for the unconditional surrender to himself of the, republican, party of the country, of the allies, all to him, as the sole arbitrator and master of the destinies of the world. Do you stand for that? Answer with your votes!" H. E. MATTHEWS cw ' '&iZ3nU. PEACE QUESTIONS ' COME RIGHT HOME: TO EVERY ONE tr Reconstruction Not 'Academic Problem, But One Vital to Each and Every American. IT IS NOT A PARTISAN ISSUE Republican Citizens Have the Right to Demand That They Be ' Consulted. H. E. Matthews H. E.' Matthews, candidate for State Superintendent of Schools, is a native of Iowa and was educated in the schools of that state. He is a graduate of Ellsworth College and took a post graduate course in addition at Iowa and Chicago Universities. Professor Matthews is married and has four children. He has had ten years experience as superintendent of grade- and high schools in Iowa and Arizona. He has had eight years experience in supervising school work in Graham and Maricopa counties. Professor Matthews was, for a time, superintendent of the Adams, school in Phoenix, and is now Superintendent of Schools, at Mesa. Professor Matthews is a progressive educator of the highest type and if elected to the office of State Superintendent of Schools will be a great acquisition to the educational system of the state. J.

Dr. KedewiU of Phoenix, was in Flagstaff'ihelping the local physi cians with1 the examinations.' i OF PRESIDENT TIT DEMOCRATIC BE CONGRESS CONTINUED Excerpts from republican leaders' statement replying to President Wilson's appeal for a return of a .democratic congress at the November election: "The voters of Michigan, for example are; called uponto support Henry Ford notorious for his advocacy of peace at any price, for his contemptuous allusions to the flag. "If the republican party controls the house we can point out some of the things they can do. They will give the country a speaker that did , not oppose" and would never oppose a draft bill, and would never say, as Speaker Clark did, that there is precious little difference between 'a conscript and a convict. " not the president's personal war. This is not the war of congress. It is not the war of the democratic or republican party. It is the war of the American people. of the civilized world against the barbarism of Germany. In this great burden and rpnnnnaihjHtv the republican party, representing more than half of the citizenship or tne country, aemunus its rightful share. "If the republican party is entrusted with power in either, or both, houses, they will do everything possible to drive forward the war and hasten the day of victory. "The republican party stands for unconditional surrender." DEATH OF MRS. A. W. BROWN. One deeply regretted event of the past week was the death of Mrs. Austin W. Brown, whose illness of one short week was due to the prevailing epidemic, which resulted later in pneumonia. Untiringly both doctors and nurses worked to. save her life but on Saturday, Qct. 26, 1918, at? 8 o'clock, P. M., Mrs. Brown passed beyond. Ethel Pearl McGuire was born In Londonville, Ohio, on June 5, 1887. Her girlhood was spent in Ohio where after completing' her schooling, she taught for one year. On August 30, 1908, she united in marriage with Mr. Austin W. Brown and to this un ion was born one child, Karl Edward, who later died at the early age ot four vears. Mrs. lirown early laentuiea ner-self with the church and its activities,, first becoming a member of the First Baptist church of Londonville, Ohio, later of the First Congregational church of Tombstone, Arizona, and of recent years a member of Vincent M. E. church of Los Angeles. Her church affiliations in Flagstaff for the past two years have been marked with the deepest sincerity and faithfulness and it is in these circles where she will be most sadly missed by the hosts of friends she had made since she and her husband chose Flagstaff for their home. The body was shipped to Los A FOR STATE AUDITOR ,New York The greatest executive heads of industry, whose offices arc located here, arc discussing what they would have to" face in case they found tnemsclves suddenly confronted by a declaration of peace. Many think their situation might be more serious than it was -on the declaration of war. An idea of what, these industries would have to contend with has been furnished by a writer in the New York Sun, who was asked the following questions : "Ihe new town of Hopewell, Virginia, contains an immense population, all occupied entirely in the manufacture of explosives. Beace will undoubtedly cancel this town,, and what are the inhabitants going to do? Where are they going, and how are they gojng to getlfresh jobs? What are the merchantsof this town going to do? , "What is going to happen to the hundred thousand war workers who have been added-to the city of Bridgeport? "What will happen to the huge plants now working on tanks, aeroplanes, shells, rifles and guns ? "What is to be the fate of the hun-.dreds of thousands who are making army cloth and army shoes? "How long will it take to re-fit the innumerable hospital ships for freight and passenger traffic? "How long will it take for new credit books to be prepared throughout the world so that bankers will know what foreign merchant's credit is good? "Do wc know what American goods are required by France and Belgium and by Roumania and Russia? "How long will it take the Reconstruction Committee Jo find out how much and what sort .of goods we require and to arrange a system of credit for these buyers which" should be bankable? What of the "Little Fellow?" "How the shipping facilities to be distributed after theiwar? Is..cargo . space to be given to'the'highest bidder, and will the small shipper find the cargo space all taken up by his big competitor? "Is the Government going to retain the control and management of railroads after the war? Shall we con tinue to pay the present enormous increases in freight, passenger and express rates? "Will tne manuiacmrer continue w pay excess profits taxes, or will he be' allowed to use thjs capital to support and carry' on his business ? "What sort of new tariffs are foreign countries going to place upon American goods, and will this tariff make it impossible for American producers to sell in .the world markets? "What sort of new tariffs must America have to protect her increased industry? . "What sort of new organization laws will be required? If industrial conditions in enemy and allied countries are' bad, are we to permit an unlimited' flow of imieration to Ameri ca which may easily make American industry-conditions equally naa; . ,ml Li - U ..Maura, tn fl sells the most who asks 'the most people to buy, most frequently and most persuasively, it certainly pays to ask." . u - o ' Charles W. Fairfield, who has been nominated for State Auditor, has had experience in that work, for he held the office of Chief, Clerk in the. office of the Territorial Auditor of New MnrJrn for three vears. Mr. Fair field is a native of Colorado Springs, Colo., having been born there in 1002. He went with his parents to California in 1887. and was educated in the common schools of that state, and later located in. New Mexico in 1903. Mr. .Fairfield .followed mercantile accounting from 1903 to 1909, He was married in 1910 and has one child. He located in Winslow, Arizona, in 1913, accepting a position with Babbitt Bros., and he still connected with that firm. He is a Thirty-second Degree Mason, a Shriner, and a Son of the American Revolution. 0 Word has just been received that Wesley Marlar, brother of Will Mar-lar, the druggist, and a well known Flagstaff boy, had been wounded recently during a battle in France. No information was received as to the exact nature of his wounds. gelesfor burial on Wednesday, where it will be placed beside the little son.

However, the next Congress, which is to be elected November 6th, may well be called the Reconstruction Congress, and will have very largely to do with the solution of these questions.

It is no time for petty politic and personal jealousies, but a time when all the great men should, be assembled to bring about a readjustment of world affairs a preparedness to meet the crest Questions which even now confront the whole - civilized world.
