From early returns which are coming In slowly indications point to the elec tion of Percival P. Baxter, governor, and Frederick Hale, republican can didates for governor and United States senator, respectively, by a majority of 25,000, although there is quite a noticeable - gain In the " democratic vote over two years ago.

France, United States sen ator, was renominated by the re publicans in yesterday's primary. Returns early today showed that he had carried 10 of the 27 voting units In the etate, including Baltimore city, and had an apparently safe margin in several others, which would give him considerably more than the necessary 67 convention delegates. In the three-cornered democratic contest William C. Bruce appeared assured of the nomination, although the preferential voting delayed the counting of the ballots and caused confusion in some districts. T. Alan Goldsborough, representative, demo crat, the only member of the present congressilona.1 delegation whose re nomination was contested, won a decisive, victory, i 4 Similar Appearance and Employ ment on Same Ranch as Thief Suspect Cause Arrests OREGON CITY.

Fred Hansteen, held here on the suspicion that he was Russell Dov, wanted in connection with the Louis Palm house .robbery in Fair field, la,, is not, according to Sherfff Harris and County Attorney -Munro, of Fairfield, the man who was Con nected with the crime. Following a habeas corpus hearirrg before Judge Campbell here today, Hansteen was released and a peculiar story of mis taken identity was revealed. Hansteen was arrested near Bull Run. September 2, by Sheriff Wilson at the .request of the Iowa authori ties. At the hearing today it de veloped that the information upon which the arrest was made was re ceived by the Iowa authorities from the father of Dov's pal. This man, Ira Vernon, employed on a ranch in Washington, wrote to his father that Dov was with him and that he was going under the name of Pete Wells. The father, then living in Devers, Wyo., notified the officers, who searched for the pair. Wells, or Dov, eluded them and in the meantime, according to the stories told in court, Hansteen became employed on the ranch in Dov's place. Because of similarity in physical description, Hansteen was mistaken for Dov, was followed and later ar rested. . . LAD, 6, KILLED BY AUTO Newell Miles of Gladstone Is Run Down Near Bridge.

DOCKS AND TRAMWAY SAVED Power Plant and Two Dry Kilns Wiped Out. OVERHEATED BOX CAUSE Dynamite Used on Burning Struc ture to Save Company Of fices and Residences. ASTORIA, Or., Sept. 11. (Special.) A property loss of close to $1,000.- 000 was sustained, more than 600 men were deprived of employment and the city was "robbed of a payroll exceeding $75,000 a month by a fire. the most disastrous Astoria has suf fered in many months, which start ing at 5 o'clock this afternoon destroyed the Hammond Lumber company's main mill, two dry kilns with their contents, and the big power plant. The outer docks, an elevated tramway, a large quantity of lumber and a substantial portion of the lumber stored In the yard were saved. About 20 railway cars loaded with lumber ready for shipment were hauled away from the plant to safe ty while the fire was in progress. Fire Originates in Kdgcr. The mill took fire from an over heated box on the big edger in the main mill about 5 o'clock, just as the night crew was going to work. Within an instant it had spread throughout the plant and before the fire-fighting cr.ew could get water on the blaze the entire structure was in flames. The city department re sponded to the general alarm and its big pumper was sent to the "river side of the plant, preventing the flames from spreading to the wharf and confining them to the main buildings. There was but little wind and the firemen working on the shore side of the plant were able to eave the company offices, stores, hotel and the residences, although to accomplish this dynamite was used to blow up a portion of the burning structures. Low Is f 1,000,000. The loss is roughly estimated at about $1,000,000 on which some in surance was carried. As J. H. Ran kin, manager of the mill, is in Cali fornia no figures on the insurance could be obtained, nor could any an nouncement be obtained as to whether the plant would be rebuilt. The Hammond Lumber company furnished the Pacific Power & Light company electric power for lighting the city, and as a result of the fire Astoria was without electric power and lights for more than two hours, or until the recently constructed (Concluded on Page 2.

Mrs. Harding was said to be "get ting along very nicely" by Dr. Carl Sawyer, son of Brigadier-General Sawyer, at 10:05 o'clock tonight. "Her Improvement is continuing," he said to newspapermen as h,e en tered an automobile for a ride with Mrs. Sawyer and Chairman Lasker of the shipping board. It was learned that President Harding retired at 9:30 o'clock to night. (By Chicago Tribune Leased Wire.) WASHINGTON, D. C, Sept. 11. Mrs. Harding, wife of the president, who has been seriously ill since last Thursday, was so much im proved today that her physicians were much encouraged. The danger point, however, has not been passed. General Sawyer, the White House physician, said in an interview that there were many encouraging signs in Mrs. Harding's condition, but that it would be too much to say the crisis was over. The distinguished patient passed such a restful night, with the fever decreasing and her strength gain ing, that it was determined this morning by the consulting spe cialists to defer a decision a'S to the necessity for surgical relief. Again this evening the attending staff of specialists agreed that the continued improvement warranted continuing the treatment of the patient without resorting to an operation. All thought of operation has not been abandoned, but if Mrs. Harding continues to gain as she has in the last 24 hours, it may be unnecessary for her to submit to surgical treat ment, which, all admit, would be dangerous at her age and in the weakened condition brought on by the strain of the last week. "Mrs. Harding is considerably better," said Dr. Sawyer to the correspondents at the White House, when he, accompanied by Dr. Charles Mayo, Dr. George T. Harding Jr., and others in attendance upon Mrs. Harding, appeared on the lawn to have their pictures taken. "Mrs. Harding has had a restful day," Dr. Sawyer continued? "Her fever is much less and we are grad ually removing the poison from the system, without resort to surgery. The increased elimination has given us a sense of relief we have not had before. She is gaining in strength and spirits. For-- the first time since her serious illness she asked for nourishment. That is a very good ' sign. We are all very hopeful for continued improvement." "Could you say that the crisis of her illness has passed?" Dr. Sawyer was asked. "No, I would not dare to say that," he replied. President Harding was reported by his intimate associates to . be greatly cheered over the favorable turn in his wife's condition. For two hours this afternoon he walked on the -White House grounds with Will Hays, ex-postmaster-general. It was the first time he had been out of the executive mansion since Friday afternoon. "The president is much cheered up," said Mr. Hays afterward. "We (Concluded on Page 3. Column 1.) THE FLY IN THE SOUP. WROHGVtTH i sir?. Weather 3L.-.

"I'm inclined to believe these circulators are a bunch of crooks," declared Mr. Spence in a etatement to Circuit Judge Bingham, made in open court. "If they are not, the witnesses I have heard today are the biggest liars I ever saw, which I refuse to believe. What I wish to make clear to the court, how ever, is that the state grange had ho part in these dishonesties. . Specific Instructions Given. "These circulators were recom mended to me by people of Portland who told me that they had handled such work before and let me say right here that I don't believe they confined their crooked methods to the Income tax bill. Their Instruc tions from us were very specific. I told them that we wanted only the names of legal voters and that truthful statements concerning the nature of the bill only should be made. T listened to some of them and never heard one use the arguments produced here in court, except the claim that the bill' would "reduce taxes, whtch is legitimate because it would, reduce existing taxes and relieve the land-owner from part of his burden." 110 Witnesse Heard. "In spite of what you have heard in this court, do you still Insist that this measure be placed on the bal lot?" Wallace McCamant, attorney engaged in attacking the validity of names on the petitions, asked. "I do, if there are enough legal names still on the petitions to justify its presentation." One hundred and ten witnesses I were heard yesterday, which meant the elimination of very near that number of names from the petition, believe those seeking the injunc tion to prevent the measure from going on the November ballot. The plaintiff contends that the dropping of 495 names is all that is necessary to invalidate the petition, the de fense holds that 613 names filed late must also be challenged, or total of 1108. Wholesale Forgeries Disclosed. Wholesale forgeries were dis closed when Attorney McCamant took a new tack yesterday. Hith erto, attention has been focused solely on the names which had been rejected by the county clerk but were certified to by notaries. Yes terday approximately 30 names were picked at random from the petitions containing the certif icationof the county clerk that the names there on were of registered voters. Called as witnesses, none of these persons recognized their signatures on the petition and all branded them as forgeries. This confirmed the suspicion that some of the paid circulators had obtained a, list of names of voters and had written them in on the petitions without consulting them asNto their wishes Deputies Not to Blame. There is no reflection against the deputies in the office of the county clerk contained in this discovery for the signatures were not compared. only the names being checked against typewritten file cards in the registration office. E. Dappen of 775 Williams avenue not only testified that it was not his signature on the petition but that he was an alien and not entitled to vote. Mrs. N.

Rachel Dickson, 937 East Stark street, and Ethel Payne, 603 Knapp street, testified that they were told the petition was to restore the five cent fare on the street car lines. Mrs. J. W.

Girls ot Oregon who are Identi fied with industrial club work are putting forth especial efforts this fall to make their displays at the various county and state fairs no table, for aside from the usual cash prizes and trips to the Oregon agri cultural college offered, there is held out the possibility of a Eur opean trip to those who stand the elimination tests at the sectional contest which follows at the Pacific International Livestock exposition in Portland this fall. A three-months' trip to Europe for four county girls, with all ex penses paid, is the prize offered for winning members! of canning teams of the United States, the American Committee of Devastated France providing the trip, for which 55,000 girls the country over are expected to compete this fall.

The local clubs of Marion and Polk county are doing their best work in years, in all branches of work, with girls and boys both demonstrating especial interest in livestock. Miss Bessie Bloom, a 15-year-old girl, of Silverton, will come back to the state fair again this year, en tering in both the industrial club exhibits and open classes. Homer Bray, 16, of near Salem, won the cup in the Jterion oounty judging team at the state fair last year, and also at the livestock 'Ex position in Portland. He is on the team again this year.

RADICALS GIVE AFFRONT Socialists" of Episcopal I'pprr House Clutter Walls at Night With Militant Poslors. Right Rev. Taul Jones, Episco palian bishop of Utah, who was forced to resign his charge because of pacifist utterances during the war, will be nominated as bishop of eastern Oregon In case the resigna tion of Bishop Robert L. Paddock Is accepted, It was announced yester day by members of the radical wing of the house of bishops. As a ort of advance campaign for the reinstatement of the de posed prelate, scores of placards, ap pealing to the bishops "to do justice to this godly young man." were plastered on telephone poles, blank walls and woodpiles In the vicinity of the auditorium by some myste rious persons some time after mid night Sunday Members of the op posite wing of the church, offended by the posters, either tore them down themselves or requested the police to do so. Radical Support Assured. Whether Bishop Jones can muser a following In the house of bishops sufficient to put him back into the episcopate as the spiritual leader' of the missionary district of eastlrn Oregon la a moot question. That he will receive the undivided support of the radical, or liberal, party of the church Is an acknowledged fsct. Bishop Jones, in charge of the mls Blonary district of Utah during the war, uttered statements which were Interpreted unpatriotic by many members of the church. fie was accused of having said that every American soldier in France should have been branded with the word "murderer." Bishop Jones was allowed to re sign under pressure. Though he holds no official position, he is Mill a bishop and entitled to sit In de liberation in the general convention. The house of bishops alone holds the power to restore him to scilvs duty. (Mncere, Bat Indlnrrert. "Bishop Jones Is a thoroughly honest and sincere man, though It is generally admitted that he Is indiscreet In his utterances H seems to lack the balance to give the other fellow credit for being honest and sincere, too,", said one of the prominent bishops, who re fused to allow his name to be used In connection with the rase. "While I would not vote to return him to the charge of a diocese where there waB much administrative work, I believe that he Is fitted for the work in eastern Oregon. In case Bishop Paddock's resignation is accepted, which I feel certain It will be. Bishop Jones will be named to head the missionary dltrlct of east ern Oregon." The Identity of the persons who started the poster campaign for the return of Bishop Jones to spiritual power Is a mystery. When dele gates arrived In the vicinity of the auditorium, yesterday, dorms of the placsHMie, bearing larse pictures of the bishop, greeted them on every wall, every telephone pole and woodpile In the vicinity of the con vention hall. By noon, the placards had disappeared. . "I complained to the polleo about It," one young rector admitted, "I knew that such actions were against the city laws." Blsbop Jones socialistic.
