OCTOBER'S GAIN GREATEST
Postoffice Receipts Alone
Show 22.65 Pet. Increase.
SEATTLE IS LEFT IN WAKE
Despite Election Campaign's Prog
ress, Bank Clearings, Building,
Shipments and Realty Activity
Show Big Growth.
October waa a great month for Port
land, closing yesterday with a record of
industrial and commercial growth far
exceeding that of any corresponding
month In the city's history- Nearly all
lines of activity show healthy Increases.
That the advancement was made In the
midst of the election campaign, when
there 1 usually more or leas a feeling of
retrenchment, is considered particularly
creditable and Indicates that Portland Is
the one Important city that cannot be
checked under ordinary circumstances.
Most gratifying is the large volume of
business of the Portland Postoffice. The
receipts for the month amounted to $82,
019.36, ss compared with $66,870.91 in Oc
tober, 1909, with an Increase of 22.65 per
Postal Receipts Take Jump.
The total of receipts is not only among
the largest ever reached at the local
Postoffice, but It will also exceed that of
Seattle. It Is admitted, by a comfortable
margin. The receipts for September
also gave a healthy Increase over Seat
Bank Clearings, realty transfers, lum
ber and grain shipments as well aa
building permits were strong for the
month, each surpassing the volume of
business in October, 1909. except building
permits. Compared with the records of
other cities Portland has made remark
able progress for the month. While the
building permita will not quite equal
the figures of the month last year, the
total number of permita issued and the
aggregate of capital represented have
Building permits for the month
reached 464, representing Sl.409.670 and
bringing the total amount of money
Invested during the ten months of the
year up to SI 4.770,333. The permits so
far Issued this year exceed the total
amount last year by over $1,280,000.
Realty Activity Great.
Activity in real estate was large and
showed substantia Increase since last
month. The larger number of trans
fers were for residences and home
sites. The aggregate amount invested
In real property waa SI. 730. 900. The
first ten months of the present year far
surpass the record made for the corre
sponding period In 1909. The total
amount to date is S26.104.930 against

STANDPATTERS ARE ANGRY
Alleged Aid by Insurgents to Demo

Three or Five Democrats
May Go to Congress.
TOPBKA. Kan., Oct SL (Special.)
With one week more for campaigning,
both parties are laying claim to the state
by substantial majorities.
Chairman Dolley, of the Republican
committee, says Governor Stubbs will be
elected by more than 80,000 majority, and
that all of the eight Republican Con
gressmen will win. Chairman Martin, of
the Democratic committee, sneers at this
forecast and says (Jeorge H- Modges. the
Democratic candidate for Governor, will
be elected by from 12.000 to 16,000 major
ity, and that the Democrats will elect
three, and possibly four Congressmen.
The Eastern forecasts on the Congres
sional elections In Kansas give the
Democrats three out of the eight Con
gressmen. The three districts given to
the Democrats are the First, Third and
Sixth. The publication of these fore
casts has stirred up the Kansas standpat
Republicans to a high pitch, and they
are demanding of the Insurgent Repub
licans an explanation. The First and
Third Districts are represented by An
thony and Campbell, who were the only
standpat Congressmen that secured re-
nomination at the August primary elec
tion. Anthony won oct by something
over 600 majority, and Campbell was re
nominated by more than SOOO. ,
Chance Seen for Chapman.
In the First District the Democrats
were so sure that McNeal, Insurgent,
would win that they did not put up a
candidate In the field, for they figured
that with McNeal as the Republican can
didate they could not elect. Now J. B.
Chapman, a progressive Democrat, is on
the ticket as an independent candidate
against Anthony, and many affect to be
lieve he will be elected.
The charge is made by the Anthony
standpatters that the Insurgent Repub
licans in the First District who sup
ported McNeal at the primary are' now
openly declaring for Chapman, and that
they do not intend to abide by the de
cision of the primary election.
In the Third District it is openly
charged that the Insurgents are support
ing Botkln, the Democratic candidate.
and 11 is said he haa a good chance of
election, for if the insurgent vote Is
added to the regular Democratic strength
It will be sufficient to defeat Campbell.

"BABY" WRIGHT CRAFT USED
Grahame-White and Moisant
Have Falls; Both Unhurt.
DREXEL IS VERY ANGRY
Englishman's Challenge to Moisant
for Another Race Around Statuo
of Liberty Is Ignored by
Chicago Aviator. -
NEW YORK, Oct. 31. A "baby"
Wright machine, Ralph Johnstone at
the wheel, glided gracefully to earth
In the twilight at the close of the ln-
altitude. The little machine of only
36-horsepower had been up 971 feet,
exceeding by 528 feet the height at
tained in France. October 11, by Henry
Wynnmalon of Holland.
Johnstone's sky-climbing feat was
not the only notable incident of the
closing day of the meet. Claude
Grahame-White, the British aviator
who carries away the Gordon Bennett
trophy, which takes the next Interna
tional tournament to England, sharp
ened the sporting appetite with a chal-.
lenge to John B. Moisant of Chicago,
for another race from the park around
the Statue of Liberty . and return.
Moissant. who won J10.000 for his
fast flight around the statue yester
day, refused to consider the challenge
unless Grahame-White agreed to fly in
a BO-horsepower Bleriot, a machine
equal in power to his own. White, who
made the statue flight in a 100-lior.ie-power
Bleriot, declined to entertain this
counter offer, so that the chance for
another thrilling flight over Brooklyn
Disgusted . because Grahame-White
was not .allowed a second try for ; the
Statue of Liberty flight, J. Armstrong
Drexel caused a sensation tonight by
announcing that he would withdraw .
from the Aero Club of America.
Grahame-White Has Accident.
Then Grahame-White, denied anoth
er chance for a visit to Miss Liberty,
sent a thrill through the spectators
when at the close of a speed race with
J. A. McCurdy, of the Curtiss team, his
propeller snapped, his monoplane dug
Into the ground in front of the grand
stand, turned turtle, and burled the
aviator underneath. He was uninjured
and won the race.
Moissant's winning of the $3000 distance
prize offered by the Aero Club of Amer
ica was the other big event of the day.
w traveled aDoroxlmately SPA miles in
two hours. In landing, after winning the
event, he smashed his propeller and
broke a running wheel, but escaped un
scathed. Wrights Are Jubilant.
The Wright brothers were Jubilant at
Johnstone's success. It was the first
time he had ever flown their tiny road
ster and he had set a new world mark.
Arch Hoxsey, his friend and rival, was
one of the first to congratulate Jonstone.
As- the crowds about the Judges' stand
cheered end cheered the announcement of
Johnstone's wonderful air feat. J. Arm
strong Drexel swooped down to tha
earth. He had been battling in the air
with the Wright "pupil," but had at
tained only 8870 feet. Johnstone had
easily won the altitude event, with lta
$5000 prise. "
It was an ideal day. The air was
clear and crisp, the' sun shone from a
clear blue sky and there was Just enough
wind to stir the row of flags along the
top of the grandstand. Tho first event
was the two-hour distance race for a
purse of $3500, donated by members of
the Aero Club of America.' The purse
was split into three prizes.
, Race Is Fast One.
The roar of applause had hardly died
away when far across the field the white
wings of a monoplane shot up from the
ground and swept toward the starting
line. It was Moissant and he was flying
the same machine with which he won the
Statue of Liberty flight. "Bud" Mars,
of the Curtiss team, and Simon and La
tham, of the French team. followed
quickly and soon were chasing Moissant
about the couree at almost a mile a min
Mars was soon down with a broken
engine and after a few laps, Latham's
engine became balky and he was forced
to descend in front of his hangar.
Moissant ,and Simon were alone in tho
air, flying close to each other. When
he passed the grandstand, Moissant let
out his speed a notch and .shot ahead.
Simon came to earth before the lap was
finished and Moissant" was flagged. Then
It was announced that Simon had pro
tested that Moissant had fouled him by
passing too close to him in the air.
Moissant Is Penalized.
The Judges penalized the Chicago man
three laps, but in a few minutes he was
up again' whizzing around only a few
feet in the air. Latham and Simon were,
once more in the contest and Moissant
appeared to be keeping out of their way. ,
It was a queer race.
