10 CONCEDE AGAIN
Justice McNary's Opponent to
Go Before Canvassing Board
One Vote Ahead.
COUNT IS SET FOR TODAY
Time I- Declared Too Short for Re
count in Sixes Precincts, Carry
County, in Reply to Request
of Governor West.
SAXiElI, Or., Sept. 4. (Special.)
Baying that he was unwilling further
to concede stipulations with Justice
Charles L. McNary, Judge Henry L.
Benson has replied to a request made
to him by Governor West for an agree
ment to a re-count of the votes In
Sixes Precinct, Curry County, where it
is said 15 ballots were thrown out be
cause the voters had voted for two
candidates for Governor. This would
have meant a delay of the offclal can
vass, set for tomorrow.
Judge Benson stood one vote ahead
of Justice McNary, for the Republican
nomination for the Supreme bench,
with the amended returns from Harney
County, which were received today by
the Secretary of State.
By Judge Benson's consent alone can
the votes be recounted and the time
for the contest has lapsed.
Benson Position Given.
The letter received today by the
Governor from Judge Benson was in
response to a second appeal made by
the executive for a recount of the vote
In Sixes precinct.
"I note what you say as to there
being ample time to recount the ballots
in Sixes precinct, in Curry County,
which leads me to suspect that you are
not fully conversant with the travel
ing facilities In that region. I am con
vinced that even if I were- willing to
concede further stipulations with
Judge McNary (which 1 am not), it
would be utterly impossible to get of
ficial returns from such recount back
to Salem in time for the canvassing
board to act thereon at the date nxed.
So far as I am concerned this must
conclude the discussion."
Denning his attitude with relation to
the contest the Governor today gave
out the following statement:
"Had a strict construction of the law
been complied with and the votes can
vassed within the time fixed by law, it
is difficult to say which candidate
would have been declared elected,
owing to the confusion which prevailed
on account of the numerous errors
which were found, and the corrections
made In the official returns."
Correction Declared Purpose.
"It was for the purpose of securing
correct results as to the will of the
people in this contest that by common
consent the date of canvassing the vote
was deferred. If the date fixed by law
was deferred in one Instance by com
mon consent It should be deferred In
another, If It is found that reported
errors have not been corrected.
"This office is interested in seeing a
certificate of nomination issued to the
candidate who received the highest
number of votes in the primaries, and
neither technicalities nor sharp prac
tices will control my actions in my
efforts to obtain the correct results."
ELOQUENCE WINS LICENSE
Attorney's Plea Causes Council to
Reinstate Second-Hand Dealer.
Eloquence, it was shown yesterday,
will touch the hearts of members of
the City Commission where pleas fail.
The proof came when John F. Logan,
an attorney, made an appeal for the
Council to grant a license to Ben Se
Kill to conduct a second-hand store.
Segill pleaded to be allowed to con
tinue his business, at the time his
license was revoked because of a vio
lation of the law. Wednesday he again
pleaded, but was refused.
Yesterday Mr. Logan won the fight
for Segill. who will be permitted to
resume his business October 1. The
original revocation of license was or
dered by vote of all the Commissioners
excepting Mayor Albee, who was not
at the meeting.

POLICE CHANGE DISLIKED
Objection Made to Wearing Uniform
When Going To and From Work.
The suggestion of Police Chief Clark
that patrolmen wear their uniforms
while going to or from work has met
with opposition from the men. Many
meet their families after work and go
shopping CV on pleasure trips, and feel
that the uniforms might prove em
barrassing. "The men will go home after work, If
they wear their uniforms. Instead of
to other places," says Chief Clark. "If
they go home they will get their rest
and be in better shape for work."

CENSORSHIP IS PROTESTED
Cable Companies Say Scheme Form
of Unreasonable Search.
Censorship of cable messages from
the United States, as a result of the
war, as proposed by the Government of
this country, has brought formal pro
test from the Commercial Cable Com
pany, acting in conjunction with the
Postal Telegraph Company.
The protest was placed with the
Government authorities at Washington
August 14 and stipulated that the util
ity heads saw in the censorship plan
unwarranted curtailment of commer
The protest pointed out that a sub
marine cable was different from a
wireless message and that a cable mes
sage to the belligerent country might
be considered in the light of supplies,
which were not prohibited. It was
further cited that a message was a
personal letter, not subject to censor
ship. The protest also said the Com
mercial Cable Company would feel
obliged to contest, as a form of unrea
sonable search, the placing of censors
In Its office.
A letter has been sent to the patrons
of the companies Involved, inviting
them to join in the protest to the Gov
ernment. Copies of the protest were received
in Portland yesterday.
