St. Paul's Church of Salem to
Hold Exercises Tomorrow.
SALEM, Or., July 29. The corner
stone of the new St. Paul's church
will be laid at 11 A. M. Tuesday. The
old church building was erected in
1S54 and consecrated on April 22,
1855, by the Right Rev. Thomas
Fielding Scott, D. D,, bishop of Ore
gon. The mission became a parish
in 1864. During the life of the par
ish there have been 16 rectors, the
present rector being the Rev. H. D.
Chambers, who was for 18 years
arch-deacon of the diocese. He took
charge of St. Paul's on January l'of

the solicitation of funds for a new
church and rectory, rebuilding the
old church over into a parish house.
The total cost of the improvements
will be between $25,000 and $30,000.

not a pin. They assured Mrs. Spagle
that pennies taken internally would
not hurt her child, and might fur
nish a benevolent ration of brass
for his diet..
"Shure, an' you fellows made as
much fuss about that penny as if it
had been a $20, gold piece," Forken
remarked to the desk force when he

It is the tentative plan xto open
the ballot bo,xes in Marion county,
in the disputed precincts, Monday
morning. What will happen when
the ballots of Marion . county are
tallied remains to be seen. Hall's
lawyers say that instead of having
the ballot boxes from all the other
counties escorted - to Salem, the
court, attorneys, checkers and, the
rest of the personnel -will travel
from one county seat to another.
In either course much time will be
Alleged Illegal Voter Listed. ,
Late yesterday afternoon Hall's
attorneys served Olcott's legal rep
resentatives with a list of individ
uals in Marion county who are
charged with voting illegally. The
programme calls for having these
people ca.lled to the witness stand.
The best-known name on the list of
those alleged to have voted illegally
is that of George Putnam, editor of
the Salem Capital Journal.'
In general, the charges made by
the Hall people are that votes were
cast by non-citizens; that votes were
cast by citizens who were not reg
istered: that voters voted in pre
cincts in which they were not reg
istered; that persons were permit
ted to change their registration to'
the republican party from 6ther
parties. In the list of Marion county
residents alleged to have voted Ille
gally, Hall's lawyers have not spa
cified in what respect the vote was
illegal. Most of the names are those
of residents of Mount Angel, St.
Paul and Sublimity, in which sec
tions Hall received very few votes
and Olcott very many. -Three
Tellers to Act.
As Jay Bowerman, for Olcott, and
W. S. U'ken, for Hall, figure the
procedure, the court will appoint
someone as a teller and there will
be a teller for Hall and Olcott, thus
three tally sheets will be kept.
Not only must the votes for Olcott
and Hall be tallied, but the checkers
must maintain a record of the votes
cast for the "also-rans" who par
ticipated in the republican guberna
torial primary. !
Each ballot taken from the box
will be opened and spread 'out and
quickly scanned for distinguishing
marks. Where there are no such
marks and the ballot Is normal, it
will be counted without further ado.
Ballots with distinguishing marks,
however, or where too many can
didates were voted for on this office
or other features which indicate a
defect, will then be laid aside and
argued before the court. Probably
95 per cent or more of the ballots
will be opened, spread .and counted
without a question being raised. A
ballot properly marked, even if il
legally cast, looks the same as any
Mr. Halljs attorneys are of the
opinion that after they get the ma
chinery for the recount moving
smoothly and mechanically it will
be possible to put on two or perhaps
three or more counting boards, and
these boards can all be checking
simultaneously in the courtroom to
expedite matters. How far this plan
can be carried out depends on the
court and the adaptability of the
Counties to Be Visited.
Multnomah county will probably
be visited by the court and entour
age following the cleaning up In
Marion county and thereafter one
county after another will be vis
ited if the programme of moving
court Is preferred to the suggestion
of carrying the boxes to Salem.
If the court is to go into each
county mentioned in the petition
t F ,
for the contest, it will visit practi
cally every county seat in Oregon. '
Witnesses will be asked for whom
they voted, and, possibly, why they
voted for the candidate they did.
Witnesses who changed from some
other party to the republican ranks
in the primaries also will probably
be asked why they changed and
whether it is their intention to vote
for the republican ticket in Novem
ber. It is probably a safe guess that
the contest will not be completed
until about a month before the gen
eral election. 1
