M icArthur, governor-general of the Phil

McCraken's majority over all 1,053
President McKinley carried Mult
nomah county yesterday by approximate
ly 5000 plurality over Bryan, and more
than 4000 majority over Bryan, Wooliey,
Barker and Debs. Returns from 70 of
the 80 precincts in the county give him
5459 plurality, of which the city of Port
land contributed 4839. The precincts
yet to be heard from are expected to
increase the plurality to 5500, with votes
to spare. .
Colonel John McCraken, the republi
can candidate for representative to fill
the vacancy caused by the death of A.
J. Knott, ran 200 behind McKinley,
but he easily distanced Jeffery, his demo
cratic opponent, and had a handsome
majority. His plurality will exceed 3500.
Jeflerv did not get the full Bryan vote
The vote was t uprisingly light for a
presidential election and weather that
was springlike. Little interest was
manifested by either republicans or
democrats, ami it was appaient early in
the day that the poll would fall far under
the spring registration. In Portland the
vote was about 3000 less than the regis
tration, and in the entire county about
3500 lees. The total vote of tho county
is over 3000 votes less than the poll for
president in 18. Comparad with 1S90,
McKinley's vote is 1931 less this year
and Bryan's is 2019 less. Final returns
will slightly reduce these shortages.
Notwithstanding the republican de
crease, McKinley s plurality la auout
5500 this year, against 5371 iu 1890.
The prohibition, regular populist and
social democratic vote was comparative
ly light. All told, it will not begin to
touch Bryan's vole in Multnomah county
iu 1890, which was 0453.
Keduced Wheat Acreage.
Oiieoon City, Nov. 5 Farmers have
not sown as much fall wheat as usual,
for the reason that the continued dry
weather did not put the ground in fit

plurality approaching 10,000, and it may
possibly exceed that figure. The task
of obtaining accurate returns from the
from the state has been attended with
nunsual difficulties, and from many
counties it has been 'passible to obtain
only statements of majorities, actual or
estimated. Tho western Washington
counties, except King, have as a rule

Walla Walla, on the east side, give9 050,

Oliver Miller, 4 years old, lost his life

children, and crushed to death.
F. A. Miller, the lather, has charge ol

about 5 o'clock, he started out in the
field, accompanied by his two sons.
Little Raymond wanted his papa to roll
a log down hill -to see it roll. Mr. Miller,
in order to amuse him, got a good-sized
log in place all ready to roll. The little
fellow was to start it. In eome way or
other his clothes were caught upon the
log, w hich thiew him over it and directly
in its path. Iti-a IWtsh, even before the

OREGON HAS NO
USE FOR BRYAN
lesterday e addition to the returns
of the Oregon election slightly increased
the republican plurality in the state
from 14,105 to 14,225. These figure are
yet tuhject to material change, however
for they are baaed on unofficial reports
from only fiiiO of the 709 precinct In the
state, tho results in the other precincts
being estimated. The 500 precincts rs
port votes as follows:
Woooley , 1,340
Debs 85 J
Total . . . 70,935
McKinley's plurality 12,347
It is estimated that the unreported
precincts will add 1808 to the republican
plurality The precincts from which no
return has yet been received are the
smaller and remoter ones. Probablv
the total vote of the state will not reach
85,000. In the precincts that have been
reported there hag been little attention
to giving the votes of the three minor
parties, and the official figures will
surely show a material increase for them
above the totals given this morning.
Hcalp Itounty Fund.
Sai.em, Nov. 7. State Treasurer Moore
received today from Malheur county
t937.8J,to be credited to the scalp bounty
fund. This amount is about one-tenth
of the Bum already received from that
fund by Malheur county. Ono of the
peculiar things about this scalp bounty
fund is that the counties which receive
the largest amounts therefrom are as
tardy as those who receive almost noth
ing, in collecting and forwarding their
share of it. Almost all the big sheep
counties have so far failed to send in the
amounts levied against them. It must
be that they are not anxious to have the
law continued or they would shown
willingness to contribute their share to
make it operative.

NO TIME IS
TO BE LOST
Filipinos to Be Forced Into Absolute
Submission An Ajjs;rcssive Policy
England Must Suppress the
llonj Kong Junta at Once.
New Yokk, Nov. S A special to the
World from Washington savs : Great
Britain will be requested by the govern
ment to suppress the Filipino junta at
Hong Kong. The administration has
had this in contemplation for some time.
I and now that no political obstac-ia tr.
8ent itself, the actiou is to be taken
Secretary Hay has already Wen ad
vised of the administration' wishes in
the matter. He will direct Ambassadcr
Choate to represent to the Bi itish govern
ment that the Filipinos are maintaining
at Hong Hong for the purpose ot aiding
Filipinos in their rebellion against the
authority of the United States in the
Philippines, and that they are practically
making Hong Kong a base of supplies
for the insurrectionists. Objection will
be be based on the ground of a violation
of the laws of neutrality.
Great Britain is expected to promptly
comply with the request, lo this Bati.e
connection it may be said that Lopez.
the representative of Lgoncillo, who re
recently came to to the United States
from Kurope, will be closely watched
and if excuse be found by reason of his
conduct he will not be permitted tore-
main within the borders of the United
States. The suppression of the junta at
Hong Kong is in accord with the policy
now to lie pursued with respect to the
insurrection in the Philippines.
Accepting the result of the election as
unqualified indorsement of the presi
dent' Philippine policy and giving as
surance that the American people have
ex pressed approval of tho attem pted sub
jugation of tho natives, military opera
tions will now be carried on in the Philip
pines with greater vigor. The rainy
season is now near the end, as soon as
troops can be moved freely about the
islands the most strenuous efforts will be
made to suppress the insurrection and
force the Filipinos into absolute sub
miesion. Instructions sent to General
MacArthur several days ago were in con
templation of this programme. He was
directed to assemble his trooo into
larger commands that they mUtit be able
to inflict severe punishment on a:y
bands of Filipinos enoiintered.
With the return to Manila of troops
sent to China, General MacArthur will
be able to inaugurate a campaign which
it is hoped in official circles hero will ac
complish the deeired object. It is aleo
counted upon here that the rn ling of
rainy senson will permit of the return to
the-ranks of a large percentage of the
soldiers from die hospitals, incapituted
by the diceases brought on by tho rains
and excessive heat prevailing during tho
summer and fall months.
