Ben Selling was s'.u refill in win
ning the Republican nomination for
United States senator over Senator
Jonathan IJourue, tiie present incum
bent. There were many surprises in the
vote and Selling was victorious In a
number of counties which had been
confidently counted in the Bourne col
umn, liourne carried Multnomah
county by a substantial plurality, but
this lead was overcome by the plur
alities for Selling In the outside coun
ties. In the republican vote on United
States senator Jonathan Bourne has
carried only Curry, Jnckson, Multno
mah and Tillamook, with Josephine,
where Selling leads, close in the In
complete returns. The counties that
Bourne is known to have carried were
all conceded to him by Selling prior
to election with the exception of Mult
nomah. Lowell Carries Home County.
Judge Lowell received a handsome
recognition from the voters of his
home county of Umatilla, obtaining a
majority of all the votes cast. Judge
Lowell also carried the neighboring
county of Grant and also Morrow.
All other counties not mentioned in
the foregoing went for Selling. In 13
counties Mr. Selling led Bourne on a
ratio of two to one. namely: Columbia,
Coos. Hood River. Lane, Linn, Mal
heur, Marion. Morrow, I'oik, Umatilla,
Wallowa, Washington and Yamhill.
Wasco county, which has large wool
interests, gave Selling three to one
over Bourne, and the neighboring
county of Sherman did likew ise.
The vote counted on sena'or now

where Fields is be.;t known, was car
ried by his opponent.

for the nomination for Justice of the
Supreme Court, has won, of course.
For dairy and food commissioner,
John D. Mickle is in the lead In most
counties outside of Multnomah, and in
Multnomah W. I. Cottel has the ad
vantage. The returns from outside
counties indicate that Mickle will have
the nomination when the official vote
is canvassed. A. H. Lei seems to be
Clyie B. Aitchison and Thomas
Campbell have been renominated for
railroad commissioners in their re
spective districts. They have held the

Convention Delegates Uncertain.
Under the Oregon system, the 10
delegates sent to the republican na
tional convention at Chicago are in
structed to vote for Roosevelt, al
though the delegates receiving the
kighest vote are personal friends of
I,a Follette and Roosevelt. Thomas
Mc'"usker, La FolIett's campaign
manager in Oregon, lead 'he ticket
among the candidates for delegate.
The delegates are in doubt, other
than Thomas McCuskcr. Henry Wal

delegate selected . Not until the com

The result as to the nomination of
five candidates for presidential elector
on the republican ticket also will not
be finally deeded until the vote of the
state has been counted. Judging from
the returns in this county, however,
It Is evident the voters very generally

dates for president and wrote on their
ballot the name of one of the five fol

J. MacMahon and Grant Thomas, of
Multnomah county; William Hanley
of Burns, and E. V. Carter, of Jackson.
