HOQUIAM. Wash.. Nov. 3 (Special.)
Chehalls County has been carried by

a large majority and the complete
county ticket has been elected. Returns

The vlte in Chehalls County was well
over 80 per cent of the registration. Ho

SALT LAKE CITY, Nov. 3. At mid
night, with straight ballots counted on
almost half the vote of the state. Sen

the vote of Salt Lake County, which

Sixth and Alder was the center of
interest In Portland last night.
Thousands of persons crowded this
ntersection until well after midnight
to see the election returns flashed on
big screen across Sixth street from
The Oresonian building.
xsy means of a well-organized, and
veteran bulletin corps. The Oregonian
was aDte to give the returns to the
eager crowd within a few minutes
after they were received.
The crowd occupied everv foot of
both streets from which a glimpse of
the screen could be had. and while it
was a serious crowd for election night,
it gave evidence of its appreciation of
Crowds Sing as Retnrna Come In.
The- political sympathies of the gath-
ring were polyglot. Chamberlain and
Uncle Joe Cannon were cheered lm-
artialiy. wet and dry sentiment
seemed about evenly divided, with the
wet. If anything, a shade stronger in
the cheering. Word seemed to be a
favorite one minute, but Hurlburt was
pplauded the next when a bulletin
was flashed that was to his advan
tage. When a bulletin was given that
Vale, county seat of Malheur County,
had gone dry the crowd broke out with
the chorus, "How Dry I am." and sang
Favorable returns for Dr. Withy
combe were applauded, and when his
picture was flashed on the screen he
ceived a rousing "hand."
A smiling portrait of President Will-
son was given an ovation.
But the people were eager for fig
ures, and they couldn't come to fast
Verses and Cartoona Amuse.
The brief Intervals between bulletins
were occupied with verses written by
Dean Collins, of The Orepronian staff.
and illustrated by rapid-fire pictures
drawn by Cartoonist "TIge" Reynolds.
A bulletin telling of the progress of
the count on the prohibition issue
would be followed by a verse from
Mr. Collins, of which the following is

When he predicted wet,

If Father Noah lived today,
I wonder how he'd beu
Because lie would not need the ark
Unless the state went wet;
And so I wonder, by the by.
Would Noah vote it wet or dry?
Opinion Quickly Divides.
'He'd vote It dry7" came a voice.
while others Insisted that the ancient

Returns from the East, showing gen
eral Republican gains in the Congres
sional elections, were greeted enthusi
astically and the sorry showing of the
Progressive candioates was one of the
star Jokes of the evening.
Painless Parker was one of the
crowd's favorites, and returns favor
able to his bill were cheered.
It was apparent last night that the
count would not be completed In Mult
nomah County until tonight, and that
returns from many precincts In the
state would not be received until to
night at least.
A bulletin announcing these facts
and saying that returns would be
flashed again tonight was thrown on
the screen at intervals during the
Walla Walla Favoring Drjs.
WALLA WALLA. Nov. 3. Vote
counting in Walla Walla County is the
slowest It has been In years. But two
complete precincts have been recejved
as yet, at 11:30 P. M. Incomplete counts
gathered from a dozen others give the
drys 691 and the wets 680.
