SALEM, Or-. -lCov. 10. (Special) If the
local option law succeeds all previous
laws regarding . the sale of liquors, the
State Fair will be "dry" next FalL CheT
mawa precinct in which the fair grounds
are located, voted in favor of prohibition,
the vote being 109 for and 32 against.
'Unless laws heretofore in force remain
in effect, the barroom at the fair grounds
racetrack must be abandoned or the Leg
islature must make special provision for
the sale of llauors there.
Prior to 1901 the sale of liquors at the
flar rounds was governed by the general
laws of the state, and the man to whom
the barroom privileges were let secured
. ifrPTiHf. from the County Court. In
order to secure a license he was compelled
to procure the signatures of a majority
of the voters of the precinct, and this
was sometimes difficult.
' For the purpose of removing this trou
ble, the Legislature passed an act In 1301
permitting the State Board or Agricul
ture to license all kinds of business on
the fair grounds and to authorize the
sale of liquors for 30 days. Since that
time the bar privilege has been granted
among the other concessions at tne lair,
and the board has had no trouble in se
curing a good price for the privilege. As
the recipient of this privilege had no
county license fee to pay and need not
incur the expense of procuring the neces
sary signatures to his petition, he could
afford to pay a higher price ior tne con
When the prohibition question was pre
sented in the recent campaign, no spe
cial thought was given to Chemawa pre
cinct, and nothing was said as to the
possible effect of the vote upon the sale
of liquors at the fair. The majority in
favor of prohibition in that precinct, how
ever, raises the question whether liquor
can now be sold there. There seems to
he no legal reason why the local option
'law should be less effective there than
elsewhere, for the law expressly forbids
the sale of liquor in any precinct where
a majority of the vote was in favor of
The Legislature has power to renew the
special authority to the State Board of
Agriculture to grant licenses to sell liquor.
and this the Legislature may be asked
'to do. In the act of 1301 the Legislature

SALMON CAUGHT ILLEGALLY.
Clackamas People Call Situation to
Attention of State Representative.
OREGON CITT. Or.. Nov. 10. (Spe
claL) Complaint of flagrant violations of
the salmon fishing law are being made
by Interested Clackamas County people
to Representative-elect C. G. Huntley, of
this city, who, as a member of the State
Legislature, will seek to have corrected
existing abuses and their repetition in
the future. These complaints have been
made to Fish Warden Van Dusen. who
has declined to remedy the situation be
cause of a lack of funds.
Fishing is by law prohibited within
two miles of any hatchery, but this law
Is being notoriously transgressed. There
Is made a provision In the same law for
the -patrollng of the Clackamas River
within the, restricted "districts about a
"hatchery, DUt fishing -for salmon with nets
is being openly carried on within one
half mile of the Government hatchery
near the city, with, the result that the
take of salmon at the hatchery will not
exceed rone-third that of last year. At
this, time last year. 10480,000 eggs had
been secured for the Government hatch
ery while but 3,000.000 eggs have been
taken this year. Of this season's take
Superintendent Walllck reports more
than 1.000,000 eggs have been taken dur
ing the past 10 days.
Much indignation exists among the
people of Oregon C&y with present con
ditions, and local fishermen are known to
be fishing in violation of the law for the
reason that nothing has been done to
regulate the practice at other places.
Oregon City people view the situation as
one of great importance to the Industry
Itself, and question whether or not the
Government In Its efforts to promote
the propagation of this fish will not be
discouraged by the lack of Interest and
the failure of the state authorities to
provide the needed protection by enforc
ing the statutes as they are now framed. (

OLYMPIA, Wash., Nov. 10. (Special.)
In accordance with an agreement reached
at the time of the State Convention at
SEATTLE, Wash., Nov. 10. (SpeclaL)
King County gives Roosevelt a plu
rality of 15,000; Mead carries this coun
ty by 7000. Pierce goes Republican on
National issues by 7500 and gives Mead
1750. Spokane is more than 4500 strong
for Roosevelt though Turner carries
the county by less than half its esti
The State of Washington placed no
limit on its Roosevelt vote. Three
fourths of the voteYs who cast ballots
for him might have stayed at home and
still he would have carried the state.
Though the state count is still lncoxn
pleted and Inaccurate, It is evident the
Roosevelt electors have a plurality
over Parker of 70,000 or better.
This is 30.000 stronger than the wild
est Republican estimates made it be
fore election, and as much better than
the first returns indicated. The state
was practically unanimous, for the
sparse 24,000 Parker votes out of
total that will exceed when off-party
totals are finished 125.000 is not to
be seriously considered.
Shrewd political observers thought
the Gubernatorial contest close, though
they gave Mead the benefit of the . dis
tribution of votes. He has a plurality
of approximately 20,000, a result no po
litical forecast based on observation,
knowledge of conditions and trend of
sentiment showed. Mead is elected by
the greatest plurality given a candidate
for Governor, principally because the
state was Roosevelt to the core.
The completed returns lor King
County have not been officially can
vassed. Unofficial counts, secured when
the precinct count was completed at
1:30 P. M. today, give Roosevelt a plu
rality of 15,059, and Mead 6996. These
figures will be changed in the official
canvass but slightly, only as the a ecu
rate count changes an unofficial and
hurried canvass. As they stand they in
dicate a cut of 4000 Roosevelt voters on
the head of the state ticket
No politician figured on more than
half this cut The Oregonlan forecast
of a 3000 plurality for Mead, the near
est correct ever published, was based
on a cut of 2000 Republicans, and the
best forecast made of this county failed
to appreciate what the "silent vote'
meant It signified Rooseveltism, just
as it did everywhere In the state.
Next to Roosevelt's big plurality the
independent voting on county and state
candidates was the feature of the elec
tlon. The state canvass is not complet
cd now, 48 hours after the polls closed.
The following, though, is approximately
correct on Northwestern pluralities

CRUSADE ON THE GAMBLERS.
Thurston County Attorney Will HaYe
Revenge for His Defeat.
OLYMPIA. Wash., Nov. 10. (Special.)-
County Attorney Frank C. Owlngs has be
gun a crusade against violations of the
law by saloons In this city.
For several months past gambling has
been running wide open, and roulette, faro
and stud-poker games have been as open
to access as in the days prior to the pas
sage of the law making the conducting of
gambling a felony. The closing of gam
bling In Seattle, Portland and Spokane has
caused a large Influx of hangers-on of
such places to Olympia, and on the recent
campaign this class of people was lined
up solidly against the Republican state
and county ticket
Owings was one of those who went down
to defeat as a result, and the full "returns
from the county hardly became known
before Owlngs instructed the Sheriff to
notify all saloons that gambling must
cease and that the city law requiring the
closing of saloons at midnight and all day
Sunday must be observed to the letter.
This notice was served yesterday, and last
evening not a gambling game was run
ning, while all slot machines were turned

Robber Is Identified While on the
LOS ANGELES, Cal., Nov. 10. A
Bensatlon was unearthed at the Los
Angeles police headquarters today
when Fred West who was wounded
last night by Policeman Hendrickson
while he "was attempting to rob s
dwelling, was identified on the operat
ing table at the Emergency Hospital
as P. David KInrey, wanted in Oakland
for the murder of Policeman James H.
Smith on November 27, 1903, and for
whom a reward of $1250 is standing.
The identification was made by Detec
tive-Paul Flammer, who, In examining
the mouth of the prisoner, discovered
a false porcelain tooth, which cor
responds with the printed description
of the murderer of Smith.
The crime for which Kinrey is
wanted was one of the most sensational
in the police annals of the state. After
a long" series of burglaries in Oakland
during the Fall of 1903, Kinrey, to
getber with Frank Goldstein, was de
tected on the night of November 27 at
tempting to enter a private house there
A pistol duel between the officers and
the burglars ensued, In which the offi
cer shot and killed Goldstein and was
pursuing and firing at Kinrey when
the latter turned and shot the officer
Kinrey succeeded in making his es
cape from tne city, and while a search
for him has been kept up from the
date of the crime, no trace of him has
been found until today.

FOREST GROVE, Or., Nov. 10. (Spe

366 to 175 against prohibition, was an un
expected blow to the anti-saloon element
of this place. Forest Grove had never,
voted against prohibition before, and the
south precinct which was thought to, be
the strongest temperance precinct in
Washington County, gave & majority of
iz against prohibition. The common opln

ordinance, and Mr. Owings would not say
today how he had decided to proceed. It
is probable that the gambling games will
remain closed throughout the balance of

" Dear. Mrs. PddxbAM : I am one of the many of your grateful friend
who have been cured through the use of Iiydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound, and. who can to-day thank you for the fine health I enjoy. When,
I was thirty-five years old, I suffered severe backache and frequent bearing

and reading of the cures your Compound had made, I decided to try it. I took
only six bottles, bnt it built me up andcurftd m -entirely of all my troubles.
My family and relatives were naturally as gratified as I was. My niece
had heart trouble and nervous prostration, and was considered incurable.
She took your Vegetable Compound and it dhred her in a short time, and she
became well and strong, and her home to her great joy &'ad her husband's
delight was blessed with a baby. I know of a number of others who have
been cured of different kinds of female trouble, and am satisfied that your
Compound is thebest medicine for sick women." Mia. Elizabeth: H. Thoxtsoit,
