Governor Chamberlain. Democrat, has
carried the state of Oregon for United
States Senator over H. M. Cake. Repub
lican, by a majority ranging: from 1000
to 1200. Returns from all the counties
are nearly enough complete to leave no
question of the result. Chamberlain has
. been successful in 14 out of the 23
counties, as follows: Baker, Clackamas,
Clatsop, Crook. Douglas, Jackson, Jo
sephine, Lincoln, Linn, Malheur, Marlon,
Multnomah, Polk and Union, and prob
ably in Lake. v
Mr. Cake has carried the remaining
18 counties, but his average pluralities
are much smaller than, his opponents.
The largest margin given by any county
for the Republican candidate was BOO in
Lane, where the unpopular action of the
Democratic Governor in vetoing the state
university appropriation had a great in
fluence on the voters! Cake's smallest
plurality was 18 in Benton. The County
of Baker, which the Portland Republican
candidate for Senator carried by a large
plurality in the primaries, reversed its
friendly attitude towards him and gave
his rival more than 300. The same re
sult occurred in Clackamas. The East
ern Oregon counties, however, as a rule,
although they were for Fulton in the
primaries, gave, the Republican candidate
pluralities, although they were small in
nearly every instance. Umatilla, how
ever, which Is the home of Senator Ful
ton's strongest friends, rolled up over
800 for the man who beat him In .'April.
Wasco, which was yesterday thought to
have gone for Chamberlain. comes

Governor Chamberlain had the unex
pectedly large plurality of BOO In Clacka
mas, the home of Statement No. 1, but In
Clatsop, the residence of Senator Fulton,
where the Democratic nominee relied on
a plurality of from 600 to 1000, he had
only 300. It Is not denied, however, that
many of Senator Fulton's Astoria friends
vigorously knifed the Portland Repub
lican nominee, but the results of their
slaughter were not 60 serious to him as
they might have been In view of the fact
that the large fishing contingent In the
lower river town was hostile to the
Democratic Governor, and declined to
support him. In Crook County, the home
of ex-Representative Williamson, a
warm friend and supporter of the Astoria.
Senator, the Democratic nominee had a
decided plurality. Linn, the old home of
tne Governor, gave him more than 400. In
Marlon the margin is very close, prac
tically complete returns, however, showing;
a Democratic lead of about. 100. In Multno
mnn tne early expectations that Gov
ernor Chamberlain would have from 1200
to 1500 are not borne out by the later re
turns. Indeed, It appeared to be probable
from the reports of many precincts yes
terday morning that Chamberlain bad
carried the largest county in the state by
only the slenderest vote, if at ell; but
later in the day, when the heavy East
Side precincts began to make their re
ports, the figures In his favor began again
to Increase, until there was more than
700 plurality, with about three-fourths of
the count In the county complete. Final
returns in Multnomah will give Chamber
aln at least 900 over Caks and perhaps
In the figures on Senator which The
Oregonlan presents this morning,
every county In the state Is fully rep
resented except Lake.. Many of them
are complete. Lake has probably
gone for Chamberlain, but there Is a
dispute as to the result and The Ore-
gonlan In Its completion estimates it
to be a tie. There is no chance for

Immediately after the ruling the de

Hensel outlined the defense. He
said he spoke for all the defendants and
denied collusion or falsity in measures of

"" cess In the Big Cities. -
DES MOINES, Iowa. June "2. (Spe
cial.) While both sides In the Sena
torial contest claim the victory In to
day's Republican primaries, the indi
cations at a late hour are that Gov
ernor Cummins has defeated Senator
Allison by a small majority. This Is
the first test of the new primary law.
There were many " surprises in the
returns. Southern Iowa seems to have
(rone throngh a revolution. The City
of Clarlnda, home of Congressman
Hepburn, gave Cummins 426 and Alli
son only 208, and this victory by the
Governor is taken by his adherents as
a sample of the results that will be
reported from the stand-pat territory.
At the same time, the Governor Is
holding his own or showing gains in
Northern Iowa, which is 'the natural
Cummins Claims 25,000 Majority.
However, the Allison people do not
concede anything At this hour, and still
claim the"electlon by a small major
ity. At the Cummons headquarters a
statement was issued claiming at least
25.000 majority for the Governor.
The City of Burlington, home of J. W.
Blythe, leader of the stand-pat forces,
went for Cummins. Sioux City, the home
of George . D. Perkins, who -was the op
ponent. o , DoVernor " Cutmnlns for the
nomination two years ago, is claimed by
the Cummins men, thougn the Allison ad
herents had expected to carry. It by 1000.
Davenport, on the other hand. Is claimed
by the Allison people by about 1500 and it
is thought that Scott County has gone
heavily against the Governor, because of
his enforcement ot the law compelling
saloons to close there.
At 11 o'clock 94 precincts had given Al
lison 33S5 and Cummins 0493. This would
give the Governor a majority In the state
at the same ratio of about 25,000. This
total does not Include IS precincts in this
county. Polk, the home of the Governor,
which gave him 1552 majority, indicating
a majority for him in the county of about
3500. At Sioux City the Allison men were
conceding the Eleventh District to Cum
mins by S500 to 4000 majority. Chairman
Adams, of the Allison headquarters, con
ceded it Monday night by only 2000. In
Sioux City and Woodbury County the pro
gressives made an .amazing fight and
claim to have carried the county.
Wins Heavily in Every Precinct.
In Creston- the indications were that
Cummins had carried the city. In
Ottumwa the Cummins men seemed to
have carried every precinct but two or
three; In Wapello County the Allison men
scaled down their original claims of 750
majority to 300.
In some sections of the state Demo
crats are alleged to have voted the Re
publican ticket. -
