18 MEN

The Steere farm water proposition
was passed yesterday by a vote of
three to one. Out of the 2,327,.votes
cast in all districts, 1,791 were in fav-
or of the change, and 536 opposed to
it. All the seven wards in the city
gave a majority in favor of the resolu-
tion, and in some cases the results, as
expressed by the men at the head of
the election, showed that an amazing
number were in favor of it.
According to the men at the head
of the. movement, the results have
proved exceedingly satisfactory. One
of the most hopeful men stated that
the figures for the changing of the
water system were even larger than
expected. He said that the fact that
every ward in the city was in favor of
the proposition was an indication. of
the extreme necessity of the change.
Out of the votes from each of the
wards, the following are the results:
First Ward, yes, 214; no, 38; Second
ward, yes, 199; no, 161; Third ward,
yes, 188; no, 126; Fourth ward, yes,
206; no, 88; Fifth ward, yes, 115; no,
33;' Sixth ward, yes, 342; no, 38; Sev-
enth ward, yes, 527; no, 60.
An amendment to the city charter
relative to the changing of the salar-
ies in the city treasurer's office, and
of the supervisor, was passed, with a
large majority. The proposition con-
cerning the election of county audit-
or's by the board of supervisors in the
place of being elected by the people at
large was also passed.
Aldermen, constables, and super-
visors were elected in each ward, but
the results show that there have been
very few changes made.

er Washington, April 1.-A French of-
is ficial estimate of the German losses
in the great battle on the western

Washington, April 1.-Plans for a
super-cannon, a great gun of long
range, possibly similar to the one with
which the Germans have been bom-
barding Paris; have been submitted
to Secretary Daniels by naval ord-
nance experts after months of experi-
ment. It is understood, however, that
the ordnance officers do not believe
the military value of such a weapon
would compensate for the time and
money which must be spent in per-
fecting and developing it.
The reports were heard in some
quarters today that the range of 105
miles was expected of the proposed
gun. Secretary Daniels would not
diiscuss the matter in any way, but
other officials declared that- no defi-
nite data was at hand on which to
make any estimates.

University women "will elect officers,
for their various campus organiza-
tions from 8 to 5 o'clock today, in
the Women's league room in Univer-
sity hall. The names of the nominees
for the various offices were announc-
ed in The Daily some time ago.
FoodSliortage Causes Loss of Weight
Zurich, April 1.-During a discussion
at- a conference of the Medical associ-
ation at Munich, it was stated that the
shortage of food had b'ought about an
average loss of weight of 15 per cent
in the male population of Munich, and
10 per cent among the female popula-
tion. In villages, however, the loss
of weight has been only two to four
per cent.
The reduced dietary, it was stated,
has caused the almost complete disap-
pearance of gout and alcholic diseas-
es. On the other hand, there is an
alarming increase in tuberculosis.
