FURXISH STILL HOrCFUL.
Republican Lenders In Umatilla Con,
fident He Has Won.
PENDLETON, Or., June 3. Mr. Fur
nish, Republican candidate for Governor,
was seen by the correspondent of The
Oregonian at 9 o'clock this evening and
asked if he conceded, as was reported, f
the election of Mr. Chamberlain for Gov
ernor. Mr. Furnish was in excellent spir
its, and replied that ho had only received
returns from a small portion of the state,
and nothing definite from Multnomah
County, and that he could not very well
concede the overthrow of the Republican
party of Orfgon before hearing from the
entire state. Republican leaders here are
still confident that Furnish is elected Gov
ernor. Chamberlain Convinced of Victory.
Mr. Chamberlain, who was worn out by
the ardors of his campaign, felt con
vinced of his election early last evening,
and at 10 o'clock went home and retired.
When seen at his office Just bsfore he left
It, he said:
"While it is too early to make any ex
tensive claims, I am sure that I shall
carry the state by from 1000 to 1500, and
that Multnomah County will go for me
by at least 500. Beyond that I do not care
to make any statement Just now."
Repnbllcnn Chairman Concedes It to
Chamberlain by OOO.
BAKER CITY, Or., June 3. Unofficial
returns from 33 precincts out of 37 in
this county give Chamberlain 5S5 majority
over Furnish for Governor. The same
precincts give Butcher 34S majority over
Williamson for Congress. At Democratic
county headquarters the unofficial returns
from 36 precincts give Smith, Dem., a
lead of nine over Rand, Rep., for State
Senator. The same precincts give Rob
bins, Dem., 15 majority In the county
over Chandler, Rep- At Republican head
quarters, unofficial returns from prac
tically the same precincts give Smith, for
Senator, a lead of four votes over Rand,
while it is a tie vote between Robblns
and Chandler. Chairman Lachner con
cedes the county to Chamberlain by about
600 majority. The Republicans elect the
following county officers: Harvey K.
Brown, Sheriff; R. W. Henry. Recorder;
P. R, Palmer, Treasurer; C. M. Foster,
Surveyor; T. N. Snow, Coroner. The
Democrats elect: A. B. Combs, clerk;
George W. Jett, Assessor; W. W. Travil
lion. Judge; J. C. Brooks, Commissioner.
The vote Is close between Henry and
James for Recorder, with odds In favor of
Henry. The vote Is also close between
Combs and Chord for Clerk, but Combs
has the advantage. It will probably re
quire the official count to determine who
has the majority in this county for Sen
ator and Representative. Both Rand and
Smith claim Malheur and Harney Coun
ties. The Senatorial election became very
exciting toward the last, and considerable
feeling was aroused between the friends
of the two candidates. Robert Eakln. for
Circuit Judge, will carry this county by
250 majority, according to present indica
tions. Returns are coming In very slowly.
Chamberlain carried every precinct In the
county, except five.

OREGON -SAYS STAY
Its Vote Declares for Reten

NATIONAL CAPITAL COMMENT
Result Is Interpreted ns a Hearty In
dorsement of Republican Poli
cies Vle-nrs of Oregon' Dele
gation on the Result.
WASHINGTON, June 3. Although this
Waa a very busy day at the Capitol, yet a
large number of Republicans found time
to express their gratification that on Na-
tional issues Oregon had recorded Itself
as It was expected she would do. In favor
of expansion, the retention of the Philip
pines, and all Republican policies. Sena
tor Hanna, chairman of the Republican (
committee, 'voiced the sentiment of near
ly all those who spoke, saying that it was .
indeed glorious news to know that Repub
lican principles were indorsed, and that
the Congressmen who represented the Na
tional Issues were elected by great major
ities. He was especially glad to learn
Tongue had been elected by an increased
majority. Like other Republicans, he,re
gretted that factional differences should.
have marred the complete victory, and.
give the Democrats an opportunity to
boast of a crumb of comfort In the cam
paign. Had it not been for the Demo
cratic success In electing a Governor, the
dispatch from Oregon showing the re
turns would have been read in both
houses as an indorsement of Republican
policies. It is more than probable that
the returns when wholly known will be
the occasion of some comment, as the
Republicans consider the majority given
members of Congress an Indorsement or
their position. Under the heading, "Ore
gon and Expansion," the Evening Star
has quite a long editorial on the election,
of which the following is an extract:
Owson leads In favor of expansion. The two
member from that state in the next House
will -vote for the retention of the Philippine
Islands. The ls3n was squarely made between
the two parties. "To etay or not to stay," was
the question. Oregon eaya "Stay." Does this
presage the general result In November?
Expansion, we are told, has from the outset
been popular In the West, the people out there
having hopes of the Eastern markets. They
have faith in what may be done In the Orient
with Manila a the principal base of American
activity. They may be dreaming. The antl
expanslonlata smile at their credulity and
wonder that practical men should surrender to
such notions. But the West has surrendered,
and Oregon speaks now on the subject as she
spoke two years ago. Nothing has taken place
elnce then in the Philippines or elsewhere to
chanse her view of the opportunity, and how
It should be improed.
VIEWS OF OREGON DELEGATION.
All Rcjrret Kniflnfr of Furnish
Pleased at Vote on Consrressnirn.
WASHINGTON. June 3. Senator Mitch
ell was. of courae, very much pleased to
note the Republican victory on Congress
men, and was also very glad that General
Williams had been elected Mayor of Port
land. He regretted that the Republican
nominee for Governor could not have
polled the full vote, but he explained to
his colleagues, who discussed the sub
ject with him, that the factional differ
ences in Portland and other parts of the
state could not be overcome. The Repub
lican Senators generally were glad that
the Legislature Is Republican, and a Sen
ator representing Republican principles
will be elected.
Speaking of the election, Representatlvfc
The election of a Democratic Governor
la very much to be regretted. If there is
to be a Democratic Governor, I know of

no one whom I should prefer to Mr.
Chamberlain, but from a Republican
standpoint, and, believing as I do that
the success of the Republican party
means continued 'prosperity of the coun
try, his election will be a serious misfor
tune. While it Is true he has not been
elected because of the .political principles
of the Democratic party, but rather in
spite of them, aided somewhat by hia de
clared differences with his party, yet the
moral effect of hia election and Influence
upon the elections this Fall In other
states ha3 a tendency to discredit the
Republican party, and to strengthen and
build up Democratic policies. Of course,
It Is gratifying that the state generally
has given a good Republican majority,
with what I am assured Is an. increased
majority In my district. This expression
of confidence on the part of the people
whom I have tried to serve faithfully Is
Itself pleasing, but in addition to that it
strengthens my hands here in Congress
with the Administration and In the de
partmentsit places the public behind me
and gives me their support. It brings
with It Increased responsibilities. To my
friends, who, during my absence from the
state, have taken up the campaign in my
behalf, I can express only the deepest
gratitude. Nothing I can do will ever
enable mo to repay tholr efforts in my
interest. The best I can hope for is to
continue to merit their confidence and ap
Mr. Tongue says that In electing Judge
Williams Mayor, Portland confers mora
honor upon herself than upon Judge Will
lams. He sajs Judge Williams ia an ex
ception to Mayors of large cities, who are
so often elected by corrupt Influences.
He also applauds the election of the re
mainder of the Republican ticket.
Representative Moody regrets that the
Republican victory in the state was not
a complete one, but Is gratified that the
revolt did not extend to the Congressional
or Legislative tickets.
FOR HIS PEOPLE'S GOOD.
Bnenenmino Explains Hit Motives
to House Committee.
WASHINGTON, June 3. Senor Buenca
mlno continued his testimony before the
House committee on Insular affairs today.
He was questlbned by the minority mem
bers with a view of bringing out the fact
that he had at times favored the Filipinos
and at others favored Spain and the
United States. Buencamlno insisted that
in each case his motives were for the best
interest of his people. There was some
controversy over the address to Congress
written by Buencamlno, In which ho fa
vored Filipino independence. The com
mittee adjourned in order to give him
an opportunity to examine it more closelv.
In the address of Buencamlno to Con
gress, the witness declared that President
McKInley was seeking by force of arms
to impose American sovereignity on the
Philippines and that thereby brothers
were being dhided and the country rent
asunder. Senor Buencamlno said this
was written In August, 1S30, at which
time he believed that independence was
the only means of protecting life and
property In the Philippines, and that no
confidence could be placed In any for
eign sovereignty. Since then, however,
he had come to better understand Ameri
can sovereignty and to uphold it as
suited to Philippine condition?. ,
When Jones sought to develop Incon
sistencies between Senor BuncamInos
statement and his present attitude, the
witness arose and declared that he and
his people were not so much interested
In past acts as In curing the wounds of
war and looking to the future. This
brought on a sharp controversy among
the members as to holding the witness to
a strict response.
Strike Riots In Gnllcla.
VIENNA, June 3. There were further
strike riots at Lerabourg, Galicia, last
night, during which a detachment of
hussars charged a mob. It Is reported
that several children were killed. A num
ber of persons wounded during yester
day's riots have died in the hospitals.

WILLIAMS SURE FOR MAYOR
Chamberlain's Majority Will
Be About 400.
McGinn, Rep., Elected Over Lane
Close Contests on Two or Three
Minor Places Onl William
son's Majority 4500.
George E. Chamberlain, for Governor,
has carried Multnomah County by from
300 to 500 majority over W. J. Furnish,
and George H. Williams, Republican, U
elected Mayor by a majority" over Inman,
Democrat, ranging from S00 to 1000. Com
plete returns hae been received from 41
city and 7 country precincts, and Incom
plete returns from 15 city and 1 countrj
precinct. Five country precincts are jet
to be heard from in Multnomah County.
In a number of the city precincts the
count had not been finished at midnight,
and the labors of the wearied clerks and
judges will in some of theee not be ended
until this morning. A total of about 250C
otes remains either to be counted or Is to
be found in the tie mlsaing countrj pre
cincts. In the figures which follow, near
ly six-sevenths of the vote of city and
county is represented. Williamson, for
Congrees will have a plurality over
Butcher, Democrat, ranging from 42C0
to 4500. Robert S. Bean. Republican, for
Supreme Judge, will have somewhat more,
and Ackerman, for Superintendent of
Public Instruction, will have over 6000
majority. The low est majority of any Re
publican candidate on the state ticket is
Whitney, for State Printer, who w;lll have
in the neighborhood of 3000. The Repub
licans have made afclean sweep of every
candidate on the Legislative ticket. The
cloeqst fight was between McGinn, Re
publican, and Lane, Citizens, for Stato
Senator. The former is doubtless elected
by from 00 to 400 votes. He already has
a lead of nearly 300 over his competitor,
and the remaining ballots will probably
The highest man on the Republican Leg
islative ticket Is A. A. Bailey, with SO
votes. He defeats Frank A. Heitkempir,

with 5633, by over 1300 votes. The lowest
man on the Republican Legislative ticket
is Willard N. Jones, who will defeat Heit
kemper by 600 or more.
On the county ticket the Republicans
hae elected nearly all their candidates.
Storey, for Sheriff, goes in by 1000 plural
ity over each of his competitors. Ken
nedy, Citizens, for County Clerk, is push
ing Fields, Republican, hard, but Is prob
ably defeated. McDonell, Citizens, for As

the Treusurershlp. Wcrleln, Citizens, has
a lead of 100 over Jameson, Republican.
