Election as First Choice of

of the Early Returns.
COUNT ONE -FOURTH MADE
At 2 A. M. Albee Has Strong
Plurality Over Other Can

At 3 A. M. Albee had 6366 first choice
votes. Rushlight running second with
49SS first choice votes. Albee's lead
Is 13S0. If the count continues at this
ratio Albee will finish with a lead of
about 5500 over Rushlight on first
With one-fourth of ' the total vote
counted at midnight, H. R. Albee was
leading-, so that if the ratio continues
to the end he will have a plurality for
Mayor of about 6500 votes.
With second and third chotce votes
Included Albee's lead would be reduced
slightly. Albee on the present count
exceeds Rushlight by 1241 votes when'
all three choices are included. On the
same basis he is S3S8 votes ahead of

laher. In the best residence sections
Mr. Albee led Mr. Rushlight, his nearest
opponent, as high as 4 to 1.
in such precinct as those in the
North End. South Portland. Lower
Albina and the South Kaat Side- Mr.
Rushlight led Mr. Albee some, but not
nearly enough to make his election
at all certain. He will be unable, to all
appearances, judging by the way the
votes were being counted at 2 A. M..
to overcome the big lead of Mr. Albee.
l.lKht Vote Is Cast.
With one-fourth of the vote count
ed at z A. M. Mr. Albee had a lead
over Rushlight of 1380 in first-choice
votes, and the count, as it was in
progress, indicated a continuation of
this ratio. There seems little reason
to doubt at 2 A. M. that he is elected
by a substantial majority, and that he
will head Portlands first commission
for the next four years.
Ideal weather failed to bring out as
large a vote as was hoped for, but in
dications are that about 60 per cent
of the registered vote was cast, or
about 45,000 total.
For Commissioners. Ralph C. Clyde.
W. L. Brewster, Robert G. Dieck. Will
M. JJaly and George L. Baker
are leaaing and it is indicated that the
four men who will servo with the new
Mayor will be chosen from these five.
In all probability first, second and
third-choice votes will have to be
counted to determine the result.
At A. M. the vote so far as counted
was as touows:

Once too often has ' the banter gone

This accusation one of years' stand

WASHINGTON, June 2. The Senate
struck out boldly tonight on the trail
of the "insidious lobby," which Presi
dent: Wilson declared is operating to
modify the tariff bill. . At the rate of
four Senators an hour the colleagues
of 'the five men on the Investigating
committee . stepped to the witness
chair, took the oath, and then told
their stories of Senatorial wealth, or
poverty, or moderate circumstances of
business and professional connections
and of their interest or lack of It in
the tariff measure. - Suspicion that the
trail might prove a winding one with
many a strange turning brought out
a good-sized crowd that listened in
tently to these tales from Senatorial
Existence of Lobby Denied.
As Senator after Senator denied
knowledge of the existence of an or
ganized lobby, declared , that improper
influence had . not! been exerted, upon
him, and that money to Influence
legislation had . never appeared on the
Congressional horizon at the present
session, the crowd slowly thinned out.
Senators who had served In Con
gress for -many, years repeatedly test!
fled that they believed there was less
personal appeal to members of the two
houses now than at any tariff revision
of recent years. Nearly & dozen and a
half Senators had been examined be
fore the end of tonight's session, and
while they disclosed freely their per
sonal business affairs and the extent
of their property investments, the
committee found no evidences of Sen
atorial or outside influence to affect
improperly tariff legislation.

The majority of the Senators de
clared they did not consider men who
legitimately appeared to present argu
ments to Congress as lobbyists. Both
Democratic and Republican Senators

Japanese Ambassador Announces Ac

No Bearing; on California Law.
WASHINGTON. Jiyie I. Viscount
Chinda. the Ambassador from Japan,
late today called on Secretary Bryan
with formal notification that Japan
had accepted in principle the proposed
plan advanced by the XTnited States for
universal peace. .
Signatories of the treaty proposed in
Mr. Bryan's plan would agree to re
frain from hostilities for a period of at
least nine months while any conflicting
claims were under consideration by, a
joint international commission.
In the case of Japan, as with ten
other nations that have received the
proposal favorably, the response replies
solely to the general principle involved
and none has committed itself to ap
proval of any of the details of the
project. Therefore ' it may be many
months bcfore the tentative draft 't
the , convention which Mr. "Bryan sub
mitted to the various embassies and
legations can be reduced to a form
which will receive their unqualified ap
proval. . .

bassador that his. government will be
prepared to give careful and favorable
consideration to the peace proposal has
no bearing' whatever-upon the nego
tiations now in progress between the
two countries regarding the California

subject from various angles for half an

"plant" dynamite in the houses of th
textile strikers at Lawrence was in
troduced y the state today.
When the trial of Wood. Atteaux and
Dennis J. Collins was resumed. District
Attorney Felletler called to the stand
Arthur Plera, a taxlcab chauffeur, v .10
testified that on the evening of Jan
nary 19, 1912, the date upon which the
dynamite was "planted," he drove a
man resembling Atteaux from the Bos
ton residence of President Wood to
Franklin and Washington street,
thence to a saloon in Court street, back
again to Franklin str -t and then to
the clubhouse of the Boston Athletic
Story Partly Corroborated.
Earlier In the trial. Collins, who
turned state's evidence, told of assist
ing John J Breen in placing the explo
sives. Breen, who also confessed com
plicity, said that ttenux paid him
1700 to do the work and that Ernest
W. Pitman, a building contractor ot
Andover. had furnished the dynamite.
Breen's story of Pitman's part In the
affair was corroborated by William
Brice. a quarryman. who testified that
Pitman had obtained the explosive
from him and tht he had seen the con
tractor deliver the explosive to a man
resembling Broen at Franklin and
Washington streets. Plera's testimony
agreed In essential particulars with a
portion of Breen's testimony. ' Breen
had told of two meetings on January 1!
with Atteaux at Washington ami
Franklin streets, at the . second " of
which Atteaux had dropped a package
containing JB00, the first Installment
In payment for the "planting."
Identification V Positive.
j?iera was unable positively to iden
tify Atteaux as his passenger o.- Breen
as the person met. Piera, however,
was quite positive that no package was
dropped by his passengers or picked up
by the other man.
Plera's story also tended to corrobo
rate the testimony of Orva A. Reddig, a
chauffeur formerly in Wood . employ,
who testified that on 'he night of Jan
uary 19, 1912, he took Atteaux In an
automobile from the Boston Athletic

which were distributed to tht strikers.
' Paper Placed In Evidence.
On th first page of the newspaper
offered as evidence by the prosecutor
appeared a letter from President Wood
advising the strikers to return to work,
and an account of the finding of the
dynamite. The detenso objected to the
introduction of the whole paper and the
judge said he would aam.t the letter.
but would exclude the headlines and
the story of the dynamite. The Dis
trict Attorney persisted that the paper
should go In in its entirety.
I offer It," he said, "to show that
the intended result of this conspiracy
was to affect public opinion.
"A large number of copies were
bought and placed in circulation. In
one column It tells of the finding of
the dynamite, in another Is Wood's
fatherly letter advising the operatives
to return. At once public opinion is
