Donell tor Assessor, Brooke
At the election yesterday, results in
Portland and Multnomah County were
mixed. Incomplete returns from 54 pre
cincts in Portland and complete and incom
plete returns from 20 of the 26 country
precincts appear to show that the "Citi
zens" Legislative ticket has won a partial
victor'. Two, and perhaps three, of the
four candidates for Senator are probably
elected, and the results are uncertain as
to the remaining. For the Lower House
there is an exceedingly close contest. Out
of 3000 votes counted, no conclusion can
be reached, except that indications appear
to favor a split delegation. Mr. Inman
is doubtless elected Senator, and both Mr.
Mays and Dr. Smith are In the lead of
the Republican candidates. Mr. Chamber
lain leads Mr. Sewall for District Attor
ney, and if his present lead Is not brought
down, will be elected.
Mr. Moody for Congress has carried the
county by a majority of about 5000, and
Mr. "Wolverton, for Supreme Judge, will
have In the neighborhood of 4000 plurality
and probably more.
Judge Sears and Judge George are doubt
less re-elected. On the county ticket.
Republicans were generally successful.
Mr. Frazler Is leading for Sheriff by a
narrow margin. Mr. Brooke has appar
ently beaten Mr. Hoyt for Treasurer, and
Captain McDonell will in all likelihood

of the -Circuit Court, Holmes- for Clerk of
the County Court, Beach for Recorder,
and Hurlburt for Surveyor have large
majorities. Mack and Showers are elect--ed

controversy between Rowe, Storey and

THE CITY HAY SURRENDER
Thoush at a Council of Generals
Last Week It Was Decided to
Resist to the End.
LONDON, June 5, 3:20 A. M. Of official
Intelligence regarding what Is transpiring
outside Pretoria there is little or nothing
today. Lord Roberts Is silent. Never
theless, by piecing together Items from
various correspondents, it would seem ".hat
HO. MALCOLM A. MOODY
Lord. Roberts Immense army is all-Cia-v
pJoyed north of Johannesburg, except one
brigade, which Is at Johannesburg, and
that six columns are converging on Pre
toria. A undated news agency message
from Pretoria, via Lourenco Marques,
June 4, says:
"Pretoria is now invested by the British.
No resistance will be offered. The city
will be surrendered by the Burgomaster
as soon as formal demand Is made."
This message purports to come in cipher.
President Kruger commands the telegraph
east-X-ard from Pretoria, and telegraphic
news from Pretoria to Lourenco Marques
haa ceased, but the messengers of news
paper correspondents continue to pass to
and fro on the railway. The latest to ar
rive at Lourenco Marques bring events at
the Boer capital down to a late hour
Friday night. At that time, according to
these sources of information, the Boer
leaders had quite recovered from the
panic, and had determined to defend tha
town. "One message, which ia dated June
"Pretoria is full of strange burghers,
but most of the commandos are laagered
outside. A. great war council of Generals
has Just concluded its deliberations. The
decision as to the future military course
has not been made known. Louis Botha
and Delarey sat in the council."
Another dispatch brought to Lourenco
Marqis by messenger and dated at Pre
toria Friday at midnight, says:
"The "war council assumes the powers
of the government. Its members declare
that the capital may still be successfully
defended. One Commander declared: "With
the help of God, the hour will come when
Great Britain will acknowledge the inde
pendence of the two republics. A tre
mendous change will yet come over tho
situation.' General Delarey said that
Pretoria would be defended to the utmost,
adding: 'There is every chance that we
will yet beat the enemy out of the coun
try.' President Kruger is somewhere to
the eastward, but is in constant wire com
munication with the leaders here. There
Is, however, a deep feeling of anger
against him on account of what is now
called his unnecessary flight, and because
he and the officials took all the gold and
left their subordinates unpaid. The lat
est phase of public opinion is a marvelous
revival of courage."
From Xiourenco Marques comes a dis
patch, dated June 4, saying:
"It Is known that some great British
movement Is In progress-outside of Pre
toria. Tho mysterious movements of
President Kruger's secretary and physi
cian, particularly their visit to the Dutch
warship Frlesland, which is in the harbor
here, has aroused suspicions that Import
ant personages are expected."
The news fronl the minor theaters is less
cryptic The JBoer operations to break
Lord Roberts' communications have been
completely baffled, and the Boers are in
danger of being surrounded by the British
forces at FicRsburg, Senekal. Heilbron and
Lmdley. General Rundle, Instead of
throwing himself against the Boers In
trenched at Bedulphberg, moved toward
Ficksburg and established communication
Tvlth General Brabant. The Boers marched
parallel with Rundle. intending to seize a
strong position ofl the Ficksburg road, but
General' Rundle got there first. The 1500
Boers who were in this movement are now
reported to be going elsewhere. Tho cor
respondents' with General Rundle continue
to point out the hardness of the fight of
last Tuesday, but they believe it will be
the last real resistance. Colonel Lloyd
was thrice: wounded. Drummer Haynes,
while aiding Colonel Lloyd, was shbt In the
hand, which was resting near the Colonel's
General Buller's guns throw a shell or
two toward the Boer positions in front
of him occasionally. General Baden
Powell Is still at Mafeking. General Hun
ter's column Is marching unopposed into
the Transvaal beyond Llchtenburg.
A new phase of the Anglo-Dutch con
flict is opening in Cape Colony. The lead
ers of tho Afrikandcrbund propose, it s
asserted, to block business in the Cape
Parliament until the British Government
acts on the resolutions adopted by the
.people's congress at Graaf Relnert, declar

HAVANA June -4. Acting Director of
Posts Erlstow today inquired as to tha
amount of postal funds taken by C. F.
W. Neely In May, 1S99, and ascertained
that it was $31,312 95". Neelv's monthly
average was about $17,000. 113 system of
bookkeeping was simplicity itself. Ap
parently he merely divided the amounts
received, taking one-half for himself and
accounting for the other.
This morning the examination of Estes
G. Rathbone, ex-Director of Posts, was
continued. It lasted more than four
hours. The most startling fact devel
oped was that May 26 of la-?t year Mr.
Rathbone ordered Special Agents Leath
erer and Sullivan to exaiplne his accounts.
They found a shortage, but It was not
thought that anything had gone wrong.
They reported, however, that there was
no check upon the Bureau of Finance,
and they recommended that certain blank
forms be made, which would answer the
purpose, such as all postmasters use
when making their reports to the de
partment monthly. Mr. Maynard. then
chief agent. Indorsed the recommenda
tion and forwarded It to Mr. Rathbone.
The latter approved It and sent it to
Auditor Reeves, -who Initialed It and for
warded it to Neely. After h.j had In
itialed it. Instead of putting the scheme
into operation, he quietly pigeon-holed
it. and it did not see the light until May
15 of this year, when the plan was put
Mr. Bristow says he Is almost sure that
the extent of the steal will amourit to
something between $50,000 and $100,000, but
that this will not touch the item of sur
charge stamps, -which Is $411,000. As to
how manv of these were burned and how
many sold. It is Impossible to obtain
definite Information. As many have
been traced, it is known positively that
all were not destroved. but if Neely sold,
say. $50 (SCO or $100,000 werth. It would not
be surprising to Mr. Bristow to find them
scattered all over the world. The postal
inspectors say it is astonishing that a
system so rotten could have been con
cealed beyond the first month. Every day
only adds to the surprises.

Returns received up to 3 o'clock thia

fell considerably short of the registration,
and for the most part the election was

Moody is safe for Congressman in tha
