CLANGYS DEFY LAW
Disgraceful Scenes at Seattle
JUDGES SIT ON BALLOT-BOXES
Police Protection to Challengers of
Little Avail Against Notorious
Bosses In the First Ward
Two Sets of Returns.
SEATTLE, Wash., April 2S. (Special.)
Not even the presence of the police, or
dered by the Chief to protect challengers
In the First "Ward, could prevent the
election judges from carrying: out the
Clancy programme today. As a result
protests are being prepared and contests
will bo filed against at least three of the
Beven precinct delegations of the ward.
In the third precinct of the First Ward
the election Judges refused to receive
ballots for more than five hours. The
Judges Insisted that no challengers could
be permitted Inside the room where vot
ing was carried on. The police, acting
under the orders of the Chief, who had
secured legal advice, Insisted that each
(action was entitled to one challenger,
and prepared to protect tho challengers If
necessary. Less than an hour after the
polls opened the judges had turned the
ballot-box over and sat on it until 7:40
o'clock this evening, when it was opened
egaln for 20 minutes.
In the meantime the voters present
elected new primary officials and another
ballot-box was opened in the same room
under police protection. Two sets of re
turns were made tonight for the county
In the second precinct 2C affidavits have
been prepared for seamen and officers on
vessels which Ho at docks in the precinct
who wero refused a vote. These affidavits
are to be signed before the men's boats
leave In the morning. The Pacific Coast
Company, which registered its steamship
employes in this and other water front
precincts, is behind the contests. The
Clancys, on the face of the regular re
turns, won the precinct by 17 votes.
In the fourth precinct, after the police
Jiad given the challengers protection, the
primary officials demanded of anti-Clancy
voters an affidavit from a freeholder that
they were entitled to a vote. This Is a
lodging-house and saloon district, where
euch affidavits could not be provided. Ir
regularities on which contests may be
based are reported from the fifth pre
cinct. The First "Ward complications affect
two Legislative districts, the County At
torney and Sheriff's fights. The Piles
committee will support the contesting
delegations from sympathy with Legislat
ive candidates. J. H. Dawes, who car
ried the Fourth Ward, might be defeated
for tho Legislature If the contesting dele
gations from the First Ward are not seat
ed. He has, on the face of the returns,
Just half the entire vote of the district
James Weir, with whom Dawes Is allied,
carried one of the two First Ward pre
cincts the Clancys lost The Clancys
lost the sixth by a bare majority.
Bitter personal and factional fights oc
curred all over the city and in a few
country precincts during the primaries.
Outside the First Ward tho only precinct
in which the Pacific Coast Company
clashed with rival political Interests was
the third precinct of the Fourth Ward.
There the right of seamen to register
from a vessel or pier was questioned, but
the Pacific Coast Company vote, insuffi
cient to carry the precinct, was counted.
Legislative fights were the principal
ones that caused bitterness In the primary
contests. There will be two or three re
nominatlons In the county, but there Is a
probability that Joseph Lyons will be the
only city member of the last Legisla
ture to be renominated. Ho was an antl
McBrlde man. There Is a chance that
W. H. Lewis, a McBride man, might win
out in a combination with the Third
Ward, though he is second in the fight
in his own ward.
In the country the fight over Sheriff
caused the larger number of contests, in
which there arose a feeling of bitter
ness. From the returns received tonight
there is hardly any question but that
L. C. Smith, of Auburn, the candidate
of State Senator J. J. Smith, John Wood
ing and their friends, has carried the
county by a big majority.
The County Convention will be held
next Tuesday. This leaves four days In
which combinations can be made that
would make the convention ,a programme
affair. The situation can easily be worked
out in that manner.
CLARK GOES AGAINST M'BRIDE
Railroad Men Will Be in Complete
Control of Convention.
VANCOUVER. Wash., April 28. (Spe
cial.) The anti-McBride faction was
strongly in evidence at the Clark County
primaries this afternoon, and won hands
down. When the County Convention meets
Tuesday the McBride delegates will be
outnumbered two to one by the railroad
Xactlonlsts. The anti-McBride people
elocted every one of the 25 delegates in
The result means tho defeat of Superior
Judge A. L. Miller for renominatlon and
nomination of W. W. McCredle for the of
fice; tho renominatlon of State Senator E.
M. Bands is also assured.
The Vancouver liquor dealers are happy
because the defeat of the McBride fac
tion is the downfall of Prosecuting At
torney Donald McMaster, whose renom
inatlon they have fought because he rig
orously enforced the Sunday closing law
some months ago. W. W. Sparks, who
was appointed Paymaster-General of the
Washington National Guard by Governor
McBride some time ago, recently side
stepped Into the anti-McBride ranks and
it is generally understood that he expects
the railroad people to give him the nom
ination for Prosecuting Attorney.
This has been the hottest factional fight
ever waged in Clark County Republican
ranks. The last convention was strongly
in favor of McBride, the opposing fac
tion being represented by about 40 to GO
of the McBride delegates.
At a late hour tonight all but ten of the
smaller Clark County precincts had been
heard from and a two-to-one majority was
already assured the railroad faction.
In Vancouver the entire delegation of 25
is anti-McBride. In North Vanucouver
precinct, where W. W. McCredle held
forth, 240 votes were cast and the lowest
railroad nominee beat the highest Mc
Bride man by a majority of 25 votes. The
North Vancouver delegates will be Dan
Crowley, W. W. McCredle, A. M. Blaker,
C. D. Hayes, F. E. Vaughan, F. Eicben
laub, Charles P. McCarty, M. R. Sparks,
James Waggener, Jr., and Chat Knight.
In both West and East Vancouver pre
cincts the McBride faction was beaten
two to one. West Vancouver will be rep
resented by A. B. Eastham, B. R. Scho
field, J. A. Webber, J. C. Shepard, H. A.
Boardman, Jr., Frank Wilcox, Steven
Preston, James Crowley and W. E. T.
Mattschas. East Vancouver will be rep
resented by J. R. Harvey, S. A. Reed,
James Padden, Milton Evans, J. P. Sta
pleton and W. W. Sparks.
The latest reports received at Vancouvor
tonight were: Harney, 4 McBride and 2
nnti-McBride; Lincoln, 3 anti-McBride: La
Center, 2 McBride and 3 anti-McBride;
Tacolt, 2 anti-McBride; Battle Ground, 1
anti-McBride and 2 McBride; Fourth
Plain, 3 anti-McBride and 1 McBride; La
Camas, 4 anti-McBride and 2 McBride;
Mill Plain, 6 McBride; Fruit Valley, 6
Among those prominent in the McBride
ranks have been Mayor L. B. Clough, of
Vancouver, ex-Receiver of the Vancouver
Land Office, who was required, some time
ago, to step aside to make room for A. J.
Cook, a prominent railroad and Ankeny
man, for the Receivership. Postmaster
Lloyd Du Bols, who, contrary to expec
tation, has not been deposed for either
Amos F. Shaw or Dan Crowley, has also
been an enthusiastic supporter and lent
the entire support of his weekly paper,
the Vancouver Independent, for McBrlde's
renominatlon. Attorney W. H. Metcalf,
F. W. Bier and John H. Elwell have also
been ardent supporters of McBride.
Among the leaders of the rallroad-An-keny
faction of the Clark County Repub
lican party is State Senator E. M. Rands,
who is said to desire renominatlon and is
regarded as a shrewd and astute politi
cian and a man of considerable influence
in the upper house of the Legislature. At
torney W. W. McCredle is said to be slated
for the nomination for Superior Judge of
Clark, Skamania, Klickitat and Cowlitz
Counties and as he has been a shining
light in the anti-McBride coterie he will
very likely receive the nomination.
W. W. Sparks, who was appointed Paymaster-General
of the Washington Na
tional Guard, by Governor McBride, has
until very recently been regarded as a
strong McBride supporter, but he recently
wandered into the railroad ranks and
climbed into the Ankeny bandwagon and
Americans,. But -They Didn't Tote.
is said to have quite a following for tho
nomination for Prosecuting Attorney.
Among other prominent railroad work
ers have been ex-Mayor A. B. Eastham,
H. L. Boardman, secretary and manager
of the Vancouver waterworks; ex-Alderman
J. A. Weber, Councllmen E. R. Scho
field and John Harrington, a prominent re
tired capitalist. Attorney J. P. Stapleton,
said to be an aspirant for Legislative hon
ors, has taken an active part in tho rail
A third faction, lead by Dan Crowley
and Frank E. Vaughan and supposed to
occupy middle ground, caused considera
ble doubt until yesterday, when it was
understood that it was secretly favorable
to the success of the railroad faction. The
defeat of the McBride faction will very
likely result In the failure of certain coun
ty officials to secure renominatlon, and
among them is Auditor A. Burnham, who
Is said to be marked for defeat in favor
of Dan Crowley.
The liquor dealers throughout the city
are said to have sided with the railroad
faction largely because Prosecuting At
torney Donald McMaster has stood with
the McBride faction and has been a can
didate for renominatlon In case of the
success of the anti-railroad movement.
The Vancouver Liquor Dealers' Associa
tion has been out with a long knife for
McMaster's scalp because he has been
more or less vigilant In closing up gam
bling and enforcing the Sunday saloon
However, In this connection, it may be
well to remark that no effort has been
made to enforce the Sunday saloon-closing
law for several months previous to yester

Bay City Street-Car Company Re
fuses More to Its Men.
SAN FRANCISCO, April 28. As the day
approaches for the expiration of the
agreement between the United Railways
and the Carmen's Union, the hope of a
strike being averted is dwindling away.
Late today Arthur Holland, president of
the United Railways, Issued a statement
In reply to a request for further consider
ation of the demands made by the men.
The statement says:
"After earnest consideration, the board
of directors directs me to state that the
final agreement submitted to you April 21
Included every concession this company
can make and retain the control of its
business and enable it to perform its du
ties to the public"
The executive committee of the union
considered the statement of the company
tonight and will prepare a brief reply.
The members of the union will probably
be called on to vote tomorrow or Satur
day on the question of striking.

Williams Pays Speaker Tribute.
Williams, following the reading, which
was punctuated with general applause,
said it was a great thing to be Speaker
of the House of Commons of the Ameri
can Republic, but it was a greater thing
not to permit promotion to that place,
one of the most exalted in the world, to
turn one's head in the slightest degree,
or to deflect ono from the course hitherto
pursued, of being a plain American citi
zen, with extraordinary common sense
and a remarkable fund of that most char
acteristic of all American qualities
This utterance provoked great applause
from both sides of the House and the gal
leries. Williams convulsed the House by
referring to a conversation he once had

"I will always think that you are fair,
as I believe vou will be."
Tho Speaker, he said, replied: "John, 1

Williams said the Speaker did himself
an Injustice when he put that limitation
on his statement, "but," said Williams,
"it was characteristic of the frankness
and candor of the man to put in the 11m.
He then moved the adoption of tho reso
lution, and that a committee be appointed
to bring the Speaker In. There was an
other outburst of aplause. The resolution
was unanimously adopted on a rising
Richardson then selected Payne (N. Y.),
Hemenway (Ind.) and Williams (Miss.) to
escort the Speaker into the hall. In a few
moments, the committee escorted the
Speaker down the center aisle, and pan
demonium reigned. Democrats and Re
publicans alike shrieked and applauded,
the occupants of the galleries joining.
When the Speaker had mounted the ros
trum, Williams, standing by Cannon's
side, read him the resolution which had
been adopted. The Speaker was visibly
affected, and as he began to address the
Houso h'e barely spoke above a whisper.
However, he soon recovered his compos
ure, and, speaking In a distinct voice,
"I would be less than human if I did
not voice my thanks to the members of

me more than I can express. For almost

Canal Payments Will Be Made by
Trade Bank Balances.
PARIS, April 28. Some of the most im
portant details of the payment of J40,
000,000 to the Panama Canal Company for
the canal concession are still open. This
Is due to tho desire to effect the payment
without causing a disturbance of the
French market Some of the leading
financial Institutions, including the
Banque de France, which Is a govern
ment Institution, report that the sudden
dumping of $40,000,000 on tho French mar
ket may cause a disturbance. Therefore,
It has been considered advisable to make
the payment so far as possible by trade
bank balances, thus avoiding the ship
ment of 540,000,000 in coin.
