Candidates Are Certain
. Success and Estimate
Plurality at Count.
C B. Moores Decries -Claims of Foes
and Says They Are Absent In
Places Where Money Is to
j Be Found on Outcome.
On the eve of the election campaign
Managers, state and county chairmen
and the candidates alike were confi
dent of success. The usual glowing
reports of sweeping victories emanated
last night from every political head
quarters in the state.
Republicans. Democrats. Progress
ives and even the Prohibitionists and
Socialists were confident.
Following are some of the predictions
made last night by the various cam
paign managers and candidates:
Booth Aaaured of Election.
C. B. Moores. Republican state chair
man The "estimates" emanating from
the Hanley and Chamberlain headquar-
ters are so manifestly absurd as to
throw discredit. In a way, on all esti
mates from whatever source they come.
The remarkable drift, however, towards
Booth during the past two weeks has
been apparent to everyone. It Is in
the atmosphere, everywhere, and the
conviction that he is certain of elec
tion is reflected In the poolrooms,
where Booth money is abundant. From
every district in the state assurances
have come into headquarters that
Booth is forging to the front and the
enthusiasm of workers everywhere is
apparent. "With a Republican majority
f about 110,000, according to the com
- pleted registration lists and with Han-
ley cutting far more deeply into Chara-
berlain than into Booth, there comes
the news from every section that while
there Is here and there some deflection
to Hanley and Chamberlain, largely on
the liquor question, there is nothing to
' indicate the possibility of reaching the
enormous Republican lead, and thou
sands of voters are coming to Booth
from the other parties. It is apparent
lv the policy of the Progressive and
Democratic parties to claim everything
for the moral effect of it. Instead of
designating the counties they are to
carry, they should simply claim all the
counties. It would save Bpace. These
gentlemen are not In evidence, how
ever, around the poolrooms taking any
of the Booth money. This money is now
talklnsr in tones louder than the com
blned chorus of all the spellbinders and
it is calling especially for Bert iu.
Haney and O. C. Leiter. Idle boasts
count for nothing. Hanley has made
enormous Inroads into Chamberlain's
' strength, but he will not carry a single
county in the state. The majority for
Dr. Wlthycombe will exceed that ever
before given for a candidate lor uov
' ernor in the State of Oregon. Mc-
Arthur's friends declare that he is
aure winner in this district.
Chamberlain Seea Success.
Bert E. Haney. Democratic state
chairman Chamberlain will carry
Multnomah, Baker, Union, Umatilla,
Harney. Malheur. Wasco, Crook, Curry,
Josephine, Lincoln, Benton, Grant, Lake,
Klamath. Jackson. Douglas. Linn, Clat
bod. Yamhill. Polk. Tillamook and
Clackamas counties. It is certain that
Senator Chamberlain will carry all the
above-named counties, and it is prob
able that he will carry several of the
others, but in them the race may be
more closely contested. Dr. C. J. Smith
will be elected Governor by a tremen
dous majority. In the Third Congres-
- clonal District I believe Mr. Flegel will
win by more than 6000 plurality.
Clarke Leiter, manager for William
Hanley. Progressive candidate for
United States Senator. My previous
predictions that Mr. Hanley will win
by approximately 13,000 votes over Sen
ator Chamberlain remains unchanged.
Mr. Hanley is strong in Eastern, Cen
tral and Southern Oregon, as well as
in the .Willamette Valley and Multno
mah county, we nave made a good
clean campaign and are confident that
we will be successful.
C N. McArthur, "Republican candidate
for Congress in Third District. I ex
pect to win by approximately 10,000
votes over Mr. Flegel. I believe A. W.
Lafferty will be third in the race. I
expect to carry 300 of the 326 precincts
in the county. Moreover, I believe
Multnomah County will return a ma
jority for the whole" Republican ticket.
A. F. Flegel, Democratic candidate
for Congress. My canvass shows that
I will win by from 5000 to 10,000 votes.
I have recelveda whole lot of en
couragement In the last 10 days and
am confident that I'll win. I have
tried to conduct a clean campaign. I
don't know whether Mr. McArthur or
Mr. Lafferty will take second place. I
believe It will be a close fight between

they have no real value. But I pro

and have a lot of strength this time
that was not evident then.
Drjn See Victory.
Victory for the drys of from 10,000
to 15.000 majority was prophesied last
night by J. E. Wheeler, chairman of
tho Committee of One Hundred.
"We have made as fair and as clean
a fight as we know how," said Mr.
"We have kept the contest to the one
real Issue, which is: Do the people of
Oregon want the saloon or do they
"There can be no side issues, such as
personal liberty, etc
"We have done so 'muckraking" and
have not entered into personalities.
"At the same time I should like to
congratulate our leading opponent, A.
M. Eppstein, for having carried on a
Institutions, hospitals, penal institu
tions social service workers, the keen
politicians and the progressive mak
azines, periodicals and reviews must
go down; and this Is the condition of
the liquor traffic in 1914."
A. M. Eppstein, manager of the Ore
gon Brewers' Association, was Jubi
lant yesterday over the outlook for an
overwhelming "wet" vote in Oregon.
"We will retain the local option and
home rule laws of the state and de
feat statewide prohibition by 30,000
majority or more," declared Mr. Epp
stein. "I have reports from practically
every precinct of every county of the
state and the same etory of a sweep
ing defeat of the proposed abortive
prohibition amendment is told uni
formly In these estimates. -Lead
la State Reported. .
"We will come up to Multnomah
County with a good round majority
and will carry this county by 20,000 or
better. The big surprise, according to
our estimates, will be in the outside
counties, where the 'drys' look for their
greatest strength. Marshfield's pri
mary vote Saturday, In - which the
'wets' swept the field, is only a fore
runner of the victory today.

Rev. Huber C. Herring, D. D.
The . Congregationalists of
Portland and vicinity will have
the opportunity of hearing their
National leader, the Rev. Huber
C. Herring, D. D., on Friday
evening, November 6, at the
First Congregational Church,
Park and Madison streets. Dr.
Herring comes as the secretary
of the National Council, a new
office that was authorized at the
last National Council. This
council recommended certain
measures looking toward a
closer federation of the activi
ties of the denomination, and
this secretary is the exponent of
. these measures.
Dr. Herring was in attendance
at the late State Conference of
Congregationalists at Forest
Grove. His addresses during the
session' were among the most
interesting features.
"I wish to compliment all forces
fighting against the prohibition amend
ment on the clean campaign that has
been made. No mud-slinging has been
indulged in by them and the voter has
had a full chance to hear our side of
this important issue. For a campaign
in which harsh feeling is bound to be
engendered, I honestly can say I have
never seen a cleaner, out-in-the-open
fight. Passions in some Instances may
have run too high, but such things are
to be expected in any campaign. These
feelings will disappear quickly after
election, when I firmly expect the de
feated 'drys' to accept the verdict as
the best Judgment of the majority of
their brothers and sisters of the state.

Harry Thomson's Act. Rich
Brogue, Furnishes IS Minutes of
Amusement Other Acts Win.
Two fine numbers make up the biggest
part of a good bill at the Empress
Theater on the week's turn of the pro
gramme. Both are humorous.
The first Is "Mag Hagerty's Father,"
which is a realistic depiction on the
order of the comic series by McManus,
and the other is the favorite of many
a show in Portland. Harry Thomson,
the "Mayor of the Bowery."
Hagerty is the father of the daughter
of the same name. Daughter marries
rather comfortably and takes father on
a trip after his retirement as a hod-carrier.
But father can't get accustomed to
riches and metropolitan bellhops, and
therein lies the opportunity for comedy.
Thomas J. Ryan as father Is one long
laugh. He is capably assisted by Edna
Harry Thomson's act cannot be de
scribed without a press that will print
an Irish brogue and half a dozen other
dialects, all of which he brings in dur-
ince the election of 1910 when Oregon
went wet by 18,000. In reality this de
feat was due to the apathy of voters.
Women Vote Expected.
"If the women -of Oregon vote as
they say they will then it is impos
sible to say how large our majority
will be, but I am confident it will not
'-be under 10,000.

Grange have come out dry as never
