There is one precinct with fewer that 20 votes to be counted in Mult nomah and a very few small precincts in Hood Kiver and Clatsop counties to be heard from. Larger deficiencies in the total vote exist in Harney, Gilliam, Morrow and Columbia. From ail other counties complete unofficial or official returns are included in the totals. Figures on the Lowden and Hoover vote are not so near complete as those on Johnson and Wood, but the varia tion , is not large. At present they stand: Hoover 13,970. Lowden 15,660. Sanfield MncDonnltl Fifth. Revision and correction of figures previously received and additional re turns from throughout the state yes terday brought about a change in the rotative standing of the leading can didates for delegates at large to the republican national convention. As a result, Sanfield MacDonald is now J - : j-. t 1 t t I 1 . running fifth. John j. Hand, JtsaKer, is third high man in the count with Conrad P. Olson, who has a lead of about 900 votes over MacDonald, in fourth place. Wallace MeCamant and Charles H. Carey are . the two high" men. The defeat of MacDonald is indicated .by the caunt, which, while incomplete, is sufficiently advanced that the John son manager can hardly expect to overtake Olson. If MacDonald has been eliminated an interesting situa tion is presented in the personnel of the Oregon delegation to the Chicago convention. Although the state has Riven a plurality of probably 2000 to Johnson, the individual preference of nine of the ten delegates is "Wood, while the tenth delegate, Hamilton Johnstone, of the 3d congressional district.

WEST AS RATE UNIT URGED BY SHIPPERS Outcome of Traffic Case Is Discussed. FLAT INCREASE DISLIKED Question of Spreading; Proposed Rise Over All Traffic In terests Coast. The question of whether or not pas senger rates will be increased by the interstate commerce commission; as well as freight rates. In order to give the corporations the income guaran teed by the .transportation act, is receiving considerable thought from traffic men and shippers. It lias been understood to be the thought of the members;, of the commission to apply the entire increase to freight traffic, probably on the theory that the prac tical discontinuance of low fares in the sense formerly in common use has taken place and that on the aver age the Increase in passenger rates was much higheV than other rates when a flat rate of 3 cents a mile was fixed for the entire country on both interstate and intrastate move ment. Where 2-cent fares were in effect the increase was 50 per cent and where 2 cents a mile was charged the Increase amounted to 20 per cent. On the Pacifio coast and in the Intermountain states the increase generally was. nil, because 3 cents a mile was the ruling rate. Shippers Favor Average Rise- But from the standpoint of the heavy shipper of freight the situation is viewed from the angle of what the increase m rates will have to be on the average to raise the necessary revenues for the carriers. If applied to both passenger arid freight traffic. the rate will be raised approximately 17 per cent on all traffic of the coun try. If applied to freight traffic alone the increase will be such as to average 24 per cent. Since the in crease is for the purpose of increas ing the income of the railroads as a -whole,-'it is argued by those who have studied the question that the burden will be most equitably dis tributed if applied alike, as nearly as possible, to all classes of traffic. The lumber inte-ests of the Pacific northwest, as the heaviest shippers in any particular line, have given con siderable attention to the subject. The West Coast Lumbermen's association is represented by J. N.'-Teal as attor ney, who also is representing other shipping interests. Traffic Manager Prebstel, formerly with the Northern Pacific, accompanied Mr. Teal to Washington. R. G. Donafdson of the Willamette Valley Lumbermen's asso ciation was the only Oregon man who was in Washington Monday when the hearing opened. Mr. Teal and Mr. Proebstel were duo to arrive this morning. George T. Gerlinger of Dal las and A. C. Dixon of the Booth Kelly Lumber company, Eugene, are now on their way to be in attendance when the commission reaches the hearing of application of the western roads. Coast Risen Protested. An angle of the situation that is of concern to the Pacific northwest is that the railroads in this part of the country have had higher rates than were in effect In most sections previ ous to and during federal control. The transcontinental lines servlnsc this territory generally have shown satisfactory' earnings, say shippers, and should not be burdened with a large increase in rates to furnish the excess to the government to carry the deficits of railroads that have been earning lower rates. Statistics published indicate that whereas the railroads of the country on an average must have income equivalent to an increase of 24 per cent on the existing rates, based upon trairic as it has averaged over a period of years, the increase neces sary to make southern roads self-sus taining would be on the average 33 per cent, as against a very slight in- craese or none at all for northern transcontinental lines reaching the Pacific coast.- , Group Plan Suggested. There has been a suggestion of groupings of the roads that would enable a more even distribution of the increases as required by definite sec tions. As at present divided the west ern, classification territory that in cludes the entire facmc coast also covers Texas. Arkansas and southern territory that comes within the low earning group of railroads. It is a territory with which this part of the country has only limited business, say the experts, ana snouia not be grouped with the Pacific coast for rate-making purposes. The conclusion of the interstate commerce commission will probably be contingent upon the show ing made by different sections in the hearing now In progress. It Is the consensus of opinion among traffic men who have studied the situation that the Pacific coast will be included with the Chicago territory and Mis souri valley states, with which this section does a very large volume of business. DELEGATION CHAIR ATTRACTS Sanfield MacDonald and Hamilton Johnstone Are Aspirants. If he is certified as a delegate at large to the republican national na tional convention. Sanfield MacDonald wants to be chairman 01 the delega tion. There is also some talk of Charles H. Carey for this position, but the sentiment points to having Judge Carey as Oregon's delegate on the platform committee. The most active aspirant for chair man of the delegation is Hamilton Johnstone, an aspiration which appar ently does not meet with ready re sponse from other delegates. Mr. Johnstone is said to be a Lowden "plant" in the Oregon delegation; at least, that is the view of the Johnson and Wood men. Mr. Johnstone is merely a delegate from a district and not a delegate at large, and the usual custom is to select as chairman of a state delegation some one of the dele gates at large. Mr. MacDonald f iguresthat he is entitled to the chairmanship of Johnson delegation, inasmuch as he was manager for Johnson in Oregon, and Mr. MacDonald. says that this view is also taken by his recent man agerial opponent, Dow V. Walker, who guided the forces lor general wood. SENATOR JOHNSON THAXKFCL Telegram Received at State Head - quarters From Candidate.

Figures Prepared by Accountants Are Submitted to Court in . 313O00 Suit. VANCOUVER, Wash., May 26. (Special.) In the cases of the Siler Mill company and the Hanlfy Lumber company, of south uena, wasn., against the United States Spruce production corporation, in which the companies sought to collect $434,000 for alleged breach of contract, depo sitions were received today from General Brice P. Disque, Colonel C. S. Breece and Colonel J. Van D'Crisp. Colonel D'Crisp was the one who signed the contracts and testified as to alleged statements he made that the government would take capacity production even if the war should ene the next day. . lie states mat ine contracts called for a fixed amount in nearly all cases. General Disque, then colonel, denies that he promised these companies that "if ihe war should end tomorrow the erovernment spruce programme would call for full deliveries for 18 months." He says he could not re call any statements he made to Mr. Cramm, secretary or the company, and that a statement he Is alleged to have made in a speech in Aber deen to lumbermen, to the effect that the erovernment would protect the lumbermen for the "next 18 months in the event of the war ending to morrow," was ridiculous. A. P. Stockwell and a Mr. Stewart were on the witness stand today and testified that they heard General Disque make these statements. Figures prepared by the expert accountants were submitted to the court. The case probably will be completed tomorrow. t PRUNE FETE DATES FIXED Vancouver Festival to Be Held Sep tember 16 to-18.

USE OF NAMES DENIED Summons to Court Is First w Some Complainants Have That They Aro Suing County. Just who is . emtiloyiiur James E. Fenton to prosecute the suit of Noran Withrow and other residents of Gres- ham against the county commission ers, former roadmaster and contrac tors of the Vista House and Just how some of the plaintiffs became con nected with the case were two ques tions that puzzled at least half a dozen attorneys representing the 17 defendants who sat through the trial in, judge Tuckers courtroom yes terday. When several of the Plaintiffs took the stand and admitted they did not know they were connected with the case until subpenaed ' and that they did not expect to pay any share of the expenses, an air of mystery set tled around the trio of attorneys handling the prosecution. When all the witnesses had been heard and argument set aside -until todav. Mis Fenton called Will H. Bard to the stand to state his opinion of the value of the job, should the suit be won. Mr. Bard placed it at $10,000. Mr, Fenton himself was compelled to go through a grilling while the legal advisers of the long list of defendants attempted to obtain from him an ad mission as to whom the business transactions had -been handled through. Fenton said that he had received a $50 retainer from one of the- Joyce brothers, restaurant pro prietors. Total Cost Is K,14S. The suit involves the taxpayers' right to question, expenditures of public funds, it being maintained in the second amended complaint that the Vista house is intended as an observatory and a monument to Ore gon pioneers. The defense alleges it was built for the primary purpose of a comfort station and that its loca tion at a sightly point called for a substantial and appropriate building. Total cost of improvements put in there was $99,148.05, of which $3812.35 was raised by subscription. John B. Yeon, who at the tjme of its erec tion was roaamaster, testified that but $68,274 went into the building it self and the remainderwent toward the :ost of the retaining wall, grad ing and paving and would have been necessary an a part of the road at this point. "It had been originally Intended to build a $16,000 structure," said Mr. Yeon. "but I was very much opposed to this because of the impractibility of a wooden building. It would stand up against the high winds m winter with difficulty and would not have been suitable to the location. As high as 25,000 pass that spot on Sundays. We felt that there Is only one Crown Point in the world and it would be a shame to waste it. "The present building has been out grown today and the first proposed structure would have been the worst kind of a waste. I understand that when It was first attempted to raise the money by subscription it was in tended as a memorial to the pioneers, but when it was taken over bv the county there was no other consider ation but for a comfort station. All proceedings in connection with the erection of the Vista house were han dled openly." I e of Xante Aaai. ' .Nora Withrow, whose name heads the list of plaintiffs, testified that she signed the petition circulated by waiter x. McwuirK, attorney, protest ing the expenditure of so much monev for such a building because he had not been able to fjnd anyone willing to put down his name at the top of the list. "I didn't sign the paper' or know my name was being used uatti I I got my Bubpena, declared M. J. Alls- house, another of the plaintiffs. "I don't know McQulrk, but I talked with Mrs. withrow and she told me she was bringing suit, but I never knew I was in on it. I don't remember saying I would join in. A. E. , Kessler was another, who. though he had signed the petition, did not Know he was to be a plaintiff.
