Portland. Me.. Serjt. 11. The
I , I L
I result, of the election in this state
yesterday evening, when therepub
lican Dlurahtv for governor, which
usually approximated 25,ooo, was
reduced toabout 8,000, while at the
same time the total vote was greatly
increased over the figures of four
years ago, is attributed by leaders
j of both parties to popular feeling
over the operation of the prohibito
ry liquor laws. Although the re
publicans reelected Governor Cobb the lour congressmen ana
will nave a working control of the
leeielature. the pluralities were so
generally reduced es to cause sur
prise. Governor Cobb and Congressman
LitUefield. in whose district the
most vigorous battle of the cam
paign was waged, and whose major
ity was reduced from that of four
years ago by several thousand, are
of the opinion that the Sturgis law,
providing for the enforcement of
the existing prohibitory law by
sta'e liquor deputes, was tte Lad
ing factor in the result, ine dem
ocrats made re-eubmisBion of the
liouor prohibitory amendment to
the people a part ot their piatiorm,
while the republicans stood square'
ly for indorsement of the prohibi-
torv plank and its strict eniorce-
The city of Lewiston was one of
tbe most important factors in re
ducing Littlefield's plurality, for it
gave to McGilucuddy a vote ot 143U
in excess of that given to JLittie-
eld. Four veara ago LitUefield
divided votes evenly with bis dem
ocratic opponent.
Of a etartliue nature was'the vole
for governor. Mr. Cobb failed to
carry his home city, Rockland,
where Davis received a plurality of
17- Augusta, the capital of the
state, went democratic by a small
margin. Sixteen out of 20 cities in
the state went democratic. Two
years ago when the candidates for
governcx were the same as this year
Cobb carried 18 of the 20 cities.
Littlefield's vote was 17 321, Mc
Gillicuddy', 16,187. Littlefield's
plurality ia, 1,134.
The legislature is republican, in
suring the reelection of Sanator
Frye. Republican claim 90 rep
resentatives in the legislature out
of i51. The v claim 24 out of 3I
senators. Officials at the headquar
ters of the Federation of Labor re
gard Litt efie'ti'j narrow escape as
a victcry, and are preparing to re
double their efforis to defeat other
candidates on their list.
The democratic vote for governor
is the largest cast by that party
since 1880. Two yearB ago Gmr
nor Cobb had a plurality of 26,ooo;
four seais ago the republican can
didate for governor had27,ooo Go
ing back to 1890, they ar ol the big
democratic tidal wave the republi
can plurality Wis 18 joo.
The republicans explain yester
day's slump by pointing to the dis
affection due to the Sturgis liquor
law, but this does not explain the
big democratic gains in all four
congressional districts.
Congressman Littlefield was Hot
ly fought by Simuel Gompers, pres
ident of the American Federation of
labor, but this antagonism did not
extend to the other three districts.
Secretary Tafr, Speaker Joe Can
non, Secator Beveridge, Senatoi
Lodge and other republicans of na
tional repute, went to Littlefield's
aid. The democrats relied on home
talent and Gompers. The result
was that Littlefield's plurality of
5,419 is cut to about 1,200. In the
other districts the democrats got no
help even from Gompers, yet they
cut the plurality of Allen in the
First district from 4,9oo to l,6oo
the plurality ef Burleigh in the
Third from 6,800 to l,5oo, and that
of powers in the Fourth from 8,900
to 4,ooo. -
., But for the country vote Gover
nor Cobb and Littlefield would sure
ly have been -defeated and both
Burleigh and Allen would probably
have fallen by the wayside. Th
democrats gained about 40 mem
bers of the legislature, but that body
remains republican by 45, against
a majority of 123 two years ago. 1

with iron rails. It was the greatest
event celebrated up to that
time, and eclipsed anything

elected to any office within the gift
nf the Oregon people when bearriv
el September lo, 1883, at night,
but all he asked for, after he attend
ed, was to visit the Chinese theatre
Portlanders were enthusiastic, how
ever, and while Villard and as many
of his party of German nobles and
British Lords as could crowd into
the Chinese opera house were smell-
log punk sticks, the citizens were
gazing at Portland's greatest illum
ination, at that date. .
There waa a celebration which
spread over several deys. It began
the night of September 8 and reach
ed a climax September 11, in a gi-
nantic parade up and down rust
street. For ten blocks, Salmon to
Vine streetB, First street was decor
rted as it never beenbefore nor since.
There were three large arches, while
everv building on each side of the
street was a mass of evergreens
flags, bunting, gas jets and pictures
Not even Presidents Koosevelt or
Harrison receiv d such a reception
Symbols ot nre were placed on
buildings on First, Front and Bide
streets, but the principal effort, to
decorate and illuminate was on
First. There were three miles of
gas pice required for the illumina
tions on First street alone, and on
the arches and buildings were 25,-
000 gas lets, i Electricity was not
used in Portland in those days, and
6uch a collection of gs jets had, up
to that time, never been dreamed
of. Busicefs bouse, were requettei'
to ba sparing with the gas in the'r
stores during the illumination in
order to keep a BtroDg pressure on
decorative jets.
As it was the "last spike" of the
Northern Pacific railroad, the local
office spread itself on decoiatioos
and bought 5J0 yards of banting
from one store. To illumkat9 the

dozen Chinese lmterns wire bought
