SALEM, Or., Tuna 11. (Special.)
Charles I McNary, Justice of the Su
preme Court, and Henry L. Benson,
Circuit Judg-o of the Thirteenth Dis
trict, are tied for the Republican nom
ination for Justice of the Supreme
Court, according- to Information re
ceived by Justice McNarr tonight.
Expert accountants of Judge Benson
yesterday discovered a mistake of 20
votes in the official count In Judge
Benson's favor in Multnomah County.
Justice McNary tonight received tele
grams that a mistake of two votes had
been- made in Judge McNary's favor in
Yamhill County and a mistake In his
favor of five votes in Wasco-County.
This reduces the plurality of seven
announced this morning- in favor of
Judge Benson to a tie.
"I received a telegram from an offi
cial source in Yamhill County tonight,"
said Justice McNary, "that a rechecklng
of the count there showed I had gained
two votes. The chairman of the Repub
lican central committee of Wasco
County wired me tonight that he had
discovered five votes there. In my
Recoaat Suggested to Benson.
Before receiving the telegrams from
Yamhill and Wasco Counties, Justice
McNary wired Judge Benson, who Is tn
Portland, that he would like a friendly
contest requiring a recount of the bal
lots tn Multnomah County, and. If ad
visable. In other counties.
Justice McNary said that the mistake
discovered by Judge Benson's experts
In Multnomah County and the mis
take discovered In Yamhill County Indi
cated that there might be other mis
takes, and that he thought it but right
that an attempt be made to determine
If there are any more errors In the
Judge McNary's telegram to Judge
"Am informed by the press that
experts employed by you have discov
ered an error in the votes in Multno
mah County. If this be true, I propose
a friendly contest Involving- the re
count of the ballots in Multnomah
County and such other counties as
you desire with a recount of the tally
sheets of each county in the state,"
Reasons for Recount Told.
After receiving the telegram from
Yamhill County, Justice McNary issued
the following statement:
"Relying upon the article " In The
Morning Oregonian of this date, I as
sumed that Judge Benson would com
munioate with me concerning the al
leged discrepancies in Multnomah
County. But not having heard from
him I felt, on account of the closeness
of the vote, that it was advisable to
send htm the telegram which I did.
"A turther incentive is a report which
I received tonight from the County
Clerk of Yamhill County to the effect
that Judge Benson had been credited
with two votes in excess of those he
"In view of the size of the vote.
Its closeness, as well as the apparent
discrepancies discovered In the returns
from some of the counties, I feel that
an attempt should be made to ascer
tain If there are any more errors In
Emery, who has been night policeman
for a number of years. No charges
were presented aaginst Emery, and no
reason was given him for the election
at this time, but It is rumored that a
jail delivery of a week ago has been
laid to him.
A local prisoner, held for giving
liquor to minors, disappeared one night
from the Jail, the door having been
opened with a key. The key had been
kept In a hiding place In the chief of
police's office, and it was supposed no
one but the chief and the night police
man knew of It. The escaped prisoner
was recaptured and swore that he had
been liberated, and Intimated that his
liberator was the night policeman. The
officer, however, denied the accusation
and secured legal counsel to prove his
innocence. This is believed to have
been the cause of the summary elec
tion of his successor last night.

ERROR REPORTED BY COFFEY
Cleric Tells Secretary of State of
Change In Vote Here.
County Clerk Coffey yesterday noti
fied Secretary of State Olcott of the
changes he had made In the abstract of
the vote for Supreme Court Justices.
These changes were made here on a re
count which show that Judge Benson
has defeated Justice McNary for the
nomination for Supreme Court Justice
by seven votes Instead of Justice Mc
Nary defeating Judge Benson . by 13
The mistake In the count for Justice
McNary was In Precinct 78, In which he
was credited with 54 votes Instead of
84. This reduces Justice McNary's total
from 13,241 to 13,221 and gives Benson
a lead of seven.
Another error found gives Circuit
Judge Cleeton 10 more votes for Su
preme Court Justice. The change in
his vote Is in Precinct 24. He should
have had 38 votes Instead of 28. This
makes Judge Cleeton's count 14,747 In
stead of 14,737. He, however, did not
need the extra 10 votes for his nomination.

leged breach of promise has been
brought by Alice Moore against George
Pierce, prominent cattle , man and
The complaint alleges that the de
fendant promised to marry the plaintiff

frequently urged Mr. Pierce to fulfill
his promise, but he postponed It -repeatedly.
It further alleges thr on or
about October 15, 1911, another promise

ceremony Mr. Pierce declined to go
through with It
Both have had trouble recently, in
which Jealousy Is thought to have
played a leading part. This breach of
amicable relations Is believed to have
led to the present action.
