AT BIG VOTE OUT

Good "Weather Help.
Multnomah County cast a heavy vote
yesterday, and, paradoxical as It may
teem, every contending element inter
ested in the election, took a heap of
comfort from this situation.
"A heavy vote ought to helj us,"
commented C. B. Moorse. Republican
"We have the bulk of the registra
tor!. The more votes that come out
the more votes the Republicans will
tret. I can't see how you can figure
out anything else.
"Tea, I'm glad to see it's a nice day
anrt that the vote is big.
Similar expressions came from Bert
E. Haney, Democratio state chairman.
"The ordinary stay-at-home vote, J
think, is apt to be Democratic when
It Is recorded at the polls at all, was
his delcaration. "For that reason 1
am sure that a heavy vote will he a
bier heln to us.
"I can't see anything but a good
omen In the fact that the vote is big,"

Farmers' Vote Expected.
"We figure that we are strong among
the farmers and if the vote is big it
Indicates that the farmers are out.
Probably the most encouragement
trom the size of the vote came from
the "dry" headquarters.
"We are depending largely on the
votes of the women and the farmers
to win the dry election," said Orton E.
Goodwin, publicity manager for the
Committee of One Hundred, in charge
of the "drv" campaign. "If the vote
Is big it shows that the women and
the farmers have gone to tne pons.
On the other hand, the "wet" forces
seemed equally confident that the tre
mendqus outpouring of voters was
helpful to them. They declared that
the element opposed to prohibition is
keenly alert to the importance .of main
taining the state "wet" and that the
heavv attendance at the polls was duo
larrplv tn the fact that the "wets" went
there to vote.
Interest at High Pitch.
Probably no previous election In
Multnomah County aroused so much
interest. The fact that the most im
nortant offices in the state as well as
39 referred and initiated measures of
more or less importance were at issue
brought out almost every element of
citizenship. With 142 names on the
ballot in Multnomah County, a citizen
must have been obscure and unin
formed indeed if he or she did not have
a personal interest in one or another
of this unprecedented array oi oince'
Besides this, several of the measures
.made profound appeals to a large pro
portion of people.
The main interest, however, centered
. in the prohibition amendment. Lead
ers on either side of this question had
: canvassed the county thoroughly, with
Doth printed appeals and personal so
licitations. As a result almost every
voter with any opinion on this sub
ject at all was out.
Contest Watched Closely.
The contest on this issue was ex
ceedingly hard-fought. Both sides
were careful to protect against frauds
at the polls. Based on the fact that
more than 6000 of the state booklets
had been returned to the Secretary of
State because the postal authorities
were unable to make deliveries to the
addresses given at the time of regis
tration, the "drys" were prepared to
challenge any and all of such regis
tered persons whose pamphlets had
not been accepted. In one North End
precinct alone 11 men were challenged
However, the election was compara
tively free from disturbances and so
far as known from irregularities.
Word came to the Sheriff's office
yesterday that a woman election offi
cial in an outlying precinct was giving
Instructions to women voters as they
went to the booths to vote. Investiga
Hon proved that this practice was not
It was the first state-wide election
In which women had the privilege of
participation . and. Jthey made free use
of their franchise.
PUPILS ASK PLAYGROUND
Xadd School Delegation to Request
Block From Council Today.
A delegation of pupils from the Ladd
School will appear before the City Com
mission this morning to urge that body
Vo grant them the use of one of the
Plaza blocks of South Parkway as a
school playground. The question will
be before the Commission in the form
of a report by Commissioner Brewster
Against the request.
The youngsters will endeavor to win
the day over the recommendation of
Commissioner Brewster. They have
Commissioner Bigelow and possibly
one or two of the others on their side
and they hope to win the others.
Ladd School has no playground, which
caused much complaint on the part of
the children. Some time ago they de
cided that the plaza block would be the
-proper place for them to play. But
when they reached this decision they
were blocked in their plans 'by park
officials. Residents of the neighbor
hood protested. On Halloween the chil
dren showed their disapproval of the
opposition by posting the plaza block
fence with cartoons.

Involved In the trade just consum
mated between the O.-W. R. & N. and
the Southern Pacific railroad compa
nies, according to valuations placed on
the various parcels yesterday by Presi
dent Farrell, of the O.-W. R. & N.
For a one-half Interest In the Steel
Bridge and fractional lots located near
It at either end. the O.-W. R. & N.
Company received the nine full blocks
of land bounded by East First. East
Second, East Glisan and East Oak
streets and numerous pieces of land
located near the bridge..
The bridge was built by the O.-W. R.
& N. Company at a cost of 2,22B.00O,
and the one-half interest is regarded
as being worth in excess of $1,000,000.
In addition to the bridge and prop
erty titles located near it, this com

20 Cents, Due to Higher Grain.
The Portland Merchants' Exchange
was the only official grain market in
the country that was open for business
yesterday. In all the Eastern cities
the exchanges were closed on account
of the election.
The' local market was strong and
the demand for wbeat was keen. A bid
of $1.12V4 for 100,000 .bushels of club
was made by a local exporter. One
lot of 5000 busheis of club changed
hands at $1.13, the price paid the pre
Muling bluestem was again the
strongest feature of the market. While
$1.15 Mi was offered on spot, there was
a sale of 6000 bushels of December de
livery at $1.20. For May bluestem $1.25
was bid and $1.28 was asked by
sellers. Red fife, for December deliv
ery, sold at $1.09.
Dealers also sought to purchase In
the country markets, but not much
wheat was forthcoming. Farmers are
certain now that higher prices will
prevail and they are letting go of lit
tle of their stocks.
The country barley and oats markets
are also strong. There was a sale
locally of oats at $30 for the last half
of December delivery. Spot oats were
held on the Exchange at $29.25.
There was an advance of 20 cents a
barrel In flour prices as a direct re
sult of the higher price of wheat.

USE BY WEST DENIED
State Forester Resents Charge
of Playing Politics.
GOVERNOR MERELY VOTES
F. A. Eliott Replies to Communica
tion of Josephine County Timber
man Who Alleged OlTlco
Favored Railroad Lands.
SALEM. Nov. 2. (To the Editor.)
The charges made by a . Josephine
County timber owner and appearing in
The Oregonlan of November 2, to the
effect that the powers of the State
Board of Forestry have been used by
Governor West to gain political advan
tage and to favor the Southern Pacific
Company In the matter of the fire pa
trol assessments in Josephine County,
are absolutely false, as the following
I am not an appointee of Governor
West, as the article states, but was ap
pointed by the State Board of Forestry.
Although the Governor is chairman, he
has nothing whatever to say as to. the
personnel of the other six members of
the board, since, under the provisions
of section 1, chapter 278. Laws of Ore
gon for 1911, he is only authorized to
appoint the men recommended for ap
pointment by such organizations as the
State Grange, Oregon Wool Growers'
Association, Oregon Forest Fire Asso
elation, etc. In selecting the State For
ester the Governor has but one vote
out of seven, and the charge that
am his appointee is absurd.
Political Action Denied.
The assertion that the powers of the
board have been used to gain political
advantage Is. I feel, fully answered by
an interview given out by me in the
fire season of 1912 and a letter which
was sent to all of my supervising war
dens in the past fire season. The in
terview and letter are reproduced
Portion of interview in The Ore
gonlan May 18, 1912: ,
I also wish to emphasize the fact that
the forestry work of the state 1b directed
by a non-political Board of Forestry, and
th political backing; which soma applicants
have considered necessary to secure under
no circumstances will have any Influence
in considering their applications. It Is
suggested that men believing; themselves
qualified for forest patrol work apply di
rectly to the State Foresters office instead
f the Governor or any other state officials
This plan will relieve other offices from
needless work In referring; letters to the
tate Forester's office, and result In more
prompt attention to applications.
Copy of letter sent to supervising
wardens, August 5. 1914:
To Supervising; Wardens: It has been re
ported that some of the employes of this
office are manifesting- undue political activ
ity, rroor that such reports are true will
result in terminating; the appointments of
the employes concerned. The duties of
upervlsing wardens, state wardens and
Federal patrolmen are to administer the
forest fire laws and to protect our forests
xrom lire. All employes, of course, have a
right to their own opinion, but working for
or against any political measure before the
votors of the state while In the employ of
this office will not be tolerated.
Supervising wardens will, therefore, ob
serve the policy outlined above, and will see
to it that all Federal patrolmen and state
paid wardens do likewise.
Very truly yours,
F. A. ELLIOTT, State Forester.
Forester Said to Rule.
Our files are open to Inspection and
will show that all applicants for posi
tions who have attempted to brine: po
litical pressure to bear were considered
adversely. In this connection I wish
to emphasize the fact that I have been
given free rein in selecting my field
force, and that at no time has the
Governor shown any disposition to in
fluence such appointments.
As to the alleged favoritism shown
the Southern Pacific Company: The
Josephine County Fire Patrol Associa
tion was organized July 3, 1913, with
the assistance and co-operation of this
flice and under the provisions of
chapter 247. Laws of Oregon for 1913.
contracted with this organization for
the patrol of all unpatrolled timber
land coming under the law in that
county. On July 1, 1913, Judge Wol
verton, of the District Court of the
United States for the district of Ore
gon, rendered a decree restoring abso
lute title to the Oregon & California
Railroad grant lands to the United
In view of this decision the Attor
ney-General rendered an opinion that
the lands In question were not sub
Ject to the provisions of the so-called
compulsory patrol law, since Judge
Wolverton s decree made them a part
of the public domain. During the sea
son of 1913 the Southern Pacific Com
pany, despite Judge Wolverton's de
cree, ' contributed toward the ex
penses of the various fire patrol asso
ciations whose districts contained any
of the grant lands.
Railroad Offer Reported.
At tne close or the 1913 fire season
met the Southern Pacific official
who, had charge of the Oregon & Call
fornia Railroad grant lands in Grants
Pass for the purpose of taking up this
fire patrol assessment matter with the
Josephine County Fire Patrol Associa
tion. The railroad company offered to
pay one-half of the patrol expenses
incurred by the association and I rec
ommended to the association that? the
offer be accepted. I considered that
neither the association nor the state
had any legal claim against the rail
road company for patrol services ren
dered during the season of 1913, and
I felt that the acceptance of the rail
road company's offer represented a
clear gain to the association and to the
timber land owners of Josephine
The association, however, refused
this offer and consequently the board
considered it best to place fire patrol
assessments against the railroad lands
on the tax rolls of Josephine County
in the same manner as assessments
were placed on the tax roll against
lands whose owners failed to provide
The State Board of Forestry did not
feel justified in continuing its co-operation
with the Josephine County Fire
Patrol Association because the associa
tion work was so managed that the
overhead charges in connection with
collecting fire patrol assessments
amounted to 57 per cent of the total as
sessments collected. In 1913 the ex
penditure of the State Board of For
estry for patrol work in Josephine
County was more than six times the
amount spent by. the association, and
in spite of this fact the association de
manded almost entire control of the
work. The association persisted in this
same attitude in the commencement of
the 1914 fire season and it was there
fore not considered advisable to con
tinue our co-operation with it.
I need hardly add that the matter of
fire patrol assessments on the Oregon
St California grant lands had nothing
whatever to do with our decision not
to continue co-operation with the as
sociation and I am convinced that the
officials of the association are aware
of this fact.
Unfair Inference Alleged.
The article draws an unfair infer
ence as to the cost of the patrol work
under the association during 1913 and
under state control during the past
season. During the season of 1913 the
state furnished four patrolmen, while
the association had but two men in
the field. The fire-fighting expenses
paid by the association amounted to
less than $10. As everybody knows.
the fire season of 1914 was the dryest
we have had during the past SO years
and the expenses Incurred In controlling
and extinguishing forest fires were un
usually large in- all portions of the
state. It cost approximately $3600 to
control the numerous fires in Jose- j
phlne County. This additional expense,
over and above the regular patrol ex
pense, made necessary an assessment
of 4 cents an acre.
The article further says that the
board charged the Oregon & California
grant lands only $632.82, or about two
fifths of a cent an acre, for the patrol
of its timber land in Josephine County.
The State Board of Forestry had no
dealings during the season of 1914 with
the Oregon & California Railroad Com
pany relative to the patrol of the grant
lands, for the reason that Congress
recognized the Government's responsi
bility for the care of these lands in
that it appropriated $25,000 for their
protection from fire and trespass. This
fund was expended under the direction
of the United States Forest Service,
and In handling it the Forest Service
co-operated with the state and the
various patrol associations.
So far there has been spent from this
fund in Josephine County $632.82 for
patrol and fire-fighting work. The
matter of apportioning the unexpended
balance of this apropriation is now be
ing arranged for by the Forest Service
and it is expected that Josephine Coun
ty will receive an additional sum from
this appropriation. If such an allot
ment is made it will be used in fire
patrol work during the season of 1915,
thereby lessening the acreage cost of
such work to the timber owners in the
The above statements, which can be
verified by our records, show that no
discrimination was made botween Ore
gon & California grant lands and pri
vate holdings in 1913, as the Oregon &
California lands were placed on the
tax roll at exactly the same figure
as the private holdings were assessed
and that during 1914 the Oregon &
California lands were considered as
Government lands and not taken into
consideration in levying the assess,

LARGE SUMS CHANGED
ELECTION BETS ESTIMATED
Even Money Risked on Prohibition
Issue, While Smith's Supporters
Seem to Admit Defeat.
Wagers estimated at more than $300,
000 were made on the uncertainties in
yesterday's election. This was prob
ably the largest amount of money bet
on any state election in the history of
Oregon, and the betting was an elev
enth-hour surprise, the general impres
sion up to Monday night being that
there was comparatively little money
Thousands of dollars were placed on
the outcome of the dry and wet Issue.
When the polls closed last night the
betting was brisk at even money, al
though during the entire day the
"wets" were installed a 10-to-8 favor
ite, with a number of backers. The
favorable weather throughout the
state caused the dry supporters to
open their pocketbooks and take in
all of the wet money in sight.' The
result was that even money prevailed
toward the closing hours.
A number of large bets of $500 to
$400 were made, with the "wets on
the long end.
Little money was risked on the
chances of success for Dr. C. J. Smith
The Smith supporters, who were few
in number, were willing to wager that
Dr. Smith would not be beaten by a
20.000 majority. This money soon was
covered by the Withycombe men.
McArthur was the choice for Repre
sentative againBt the field. Several
large wagers were placed on this re
suit. There were also several hundred
dollars placed on Lafferty's defeat of
Considerable money wasbet on the
race for Sheriff. Word was a favorite
in many betting places, but the Hurl

even at ooas.
As to the outcome of the Senatorial
race, sentiment among the members
of the betting fraternity was at times
in favor of Chamberlain at 10 to 8
odds, but toward 6 o'clock the betting

. D1EGK HELPS TRIM
ADDITIONAL 923,000 CUT
PUBLIC WORKS FUND.
Reduction Brtnsr Total Pruned From
Commissioners' Badget Estimate
to Approximately $103,000.
The City Commission, assisted by
Commissioner Lieck, sitting as a com
mittee to consider the budget of esti
mates for conducting the city govern
ment during 1915, yesterday trimmed
out $23,000 more from the estimates of
the public works department Commis
sioner Dieck, seeing that the Council
had determined to cut his budget to the
bone, made suggestions lor elimina
tions. These were all adopted and sev.
eral thousand dollars of other appro
priations were lopped off at the same
time over Mr. Dieck's protest.
This makes a total of about 1105,000
cut out of Mr. Dieck's budget since the
Council began Its consideration. In
several sessions at which the public
works estimates have- been considered
the estimates have been pruned severe
ly. It has been the opinion of the
majority of the Commissioners that
there will be only a small amount of
Improvement work next year and for
that reason the public works forces
should be cut down materially. It was
decided also that too much special sur
vey work has been done by the depart
The largest single Item cut out by
the committee yesterday was $3,000 for
continuation of traffic surveys. It was
decided that this is an unnecessary
expenditure. Other cuts were made In
supplies and materials.
The Council completed its work or
going over all the budgets for the
lirst time. All will be scanned again
before the end of this week and addi
tional eliminations made. Upon com
pletion of this work arrangements will
be made for public meetings at which
appropriation matters will be con
sidered. So far the Council has cut down
estimated about $420,000, which gives
assurance that the tax levy for 1915
will not be more than 7 mills. This will
be the smallest levy in three years.

fallen off greatly since the war began,
that in gasoline and naptha showed an
increase in September of 3,000,000 gal
lons over the same month in 1913. With
the knowledge that much of this was
being shipped from neutral to belliger
ent nations. Great Britain felt Justified
in holding up the Rockefeller, states
a letter sent by the British Ambassador
at Washington to Robert Lansing, coun
sellor for the State Department, a copy
of which was received in Portland yes
terday by Consul Thomas Erskine.
In his communication Sir Cecil Spring
Rice makes it clear that his nation will
insist upon knowing the real destina
tions of cargoes shipped to neutral na
tions. This is following the doctrine,
he says.-laid down by the United States
in 1863, thatt he character of goods is
determined not by their Immediate but
by their ultimate destination.
All contraband cargoes that have been
retained have been paid .for, the Am
bassador insists. Cotton will not be
treated as contraband, he asserts, in
reply to an inquiry from Mr. Lansing.
