PORTLAND, June 2 (2 A. M.)
Chamberlain's vote in Multnomah has
teen cut down materially since mid
night. Of the 5600 votes counted he
is in the lead by only 290. Late re
turns from Marin show Cake making
gains there. At 1 o'clock, Baker City
reports that Cake is ahead in that
county. The last report from Wasco
estimates CUamberlain's majority to
be 250, with the rest of the Republi
can ticket elected. It is estimated that
Chamberlain has carried Jackson by
200. Little attention is being paid to
Tailroad commissioner, . but from the
meagre returns it is conceded Aitchi
on has been re-elected bv a sub
stantial majority. Only one complete J
precinct Portland counted, number
seventy-three and a half, Rose City
Park addition gave Chamberlain six,
and Cake four. Returns slow, will file

PORTLAND, June 2 (1:45 A. M.
At 11:20 last night it was thought that
Cake would carry Clackamas county
by 200 and that Hawley would get it
by 1200, but while the count was slow,
Chamberlain was in the lead. It is
said that the early morning vote fa
Yored the Republican nominee. Hood
River City will go for Cake and j
against prohibition but it is thought
the bill making Hood River county
out of a portion of Wasco has passed
by a safe majority. Yamhill county
will probably swing 200 votes into J
the Cake column, but it has defeated
the single tax and tavored. tne univer
sity appropriation. In Malheur, Cake
and Chamberlain are running so close
that no prediction have been given
out since early in the evening.
Prohibtion seems to be leading there
two to one. Woodburn is against pro
hibition. At 11 o'clock last night the
count in Clatsop gave Chamberlain
248 and Cake 215. It is exected that
Chamberlain will have a slight lead.
At II o'clock last night Union had a
light lead for Cake from the count on
majority of the precincts. Prohibi
tion has carried the county. Meagre

friends here are showing that he will

Democratic convention in Denver.
The city is excited over the election
PORTLAND, June 1 (12:50).-The
indications are that Chamberlain has
carried Multnomah county by 1500,
although this may be decreased when
the vote from the country and pre
cincts is counted. A rumor has it
tonight that the friends of ex-City Au
ditor Tom Devlin fought Cake al
leging that the senatorial candidate
and his brother who is now county
central chairman knifed Devlin at the
Mayoralty primaries a year ago. It is
also said that all federal officials here

It is thought prohibition will make a
clean sweep in Clackamas which

lead for Cake. 1 he Kepuoncans nave

tholIglt that Cake's majority will be

that Chamberlain may win yet. Union

PORTLAND, Juno l.-At 9:30 this
evening returns from Morrow reports
that Cake will carry the county, and
he is ahead on the first counts in
Marion. Multnomah is runniny very
close. Portland gives an overwhelm
ing vote for the university nppropria

Cake in the lead. Tom Word, Mult

ago, is being completed snowed under
by the present sheriff, Stevens. It is
the hevaiest vote cast in the State's
history. The woman suffrage has lost
but the fisheries vote is in the air.
O'Day, appointed circuit judge of
Multnomah county by Chamberlain,
is running behind.
PORTLAND, June 1-At 9:30 to
night the indications arc that Gover
nor Chamberlain (Democratic) has
carried Multnomah county (Port
land), largely. Returns from the
country show Cake (Republican) to
be slightly in the lead. If the pres
ent ratios continue. Chamberlain will
win, but it is too early to venture any
prediction by what majority.
PORTLAND, June 1. In some of
the Williamette Valley counties Cake,
Republican, is running well, and in
other counties the candidates neck

impossible to declare anything on
them at ths writing.
OAKFIELD, Wis., June 1. While
attending services at the Methodist
Episcopal Church yesterday, Grant
Pool, aged 35 years, shot and killed
Mrs. E. IT. Orvis, a leading resident
of the village. Rev. Sabin Halsey
had completed the services and had
gone to the vestibule door to shake
hands with the members of the con
gregation as they left the church.
Pool occupied a pew in the church
directly in front of Mrs. Orvis and
followed her to the door. Mrs. Orvis
was about to shake hands with Mr.
Halsey when Pool pulled a "revolver,
firing three shots in rapid succession,
one bullet entering the heart, causing
instant death. Mrs. Orvis fell into
the arms of her husband.
Mr. Halsey asked the congregation
to remain and offer prayer for the
dying woman. The congregation was
panic-stricken, however, and fled from
the church in haste. The pastor re
mained and prayed over the body.
It is said that Mr. and Mrs. Orvis
objected to Pool's atentions to their
daughter, and that this was the cause
of the shooting.
"Anarchism and the Law of the
Land" was the subject of the address
at the Unitarian chapel last night,
delivered by Rev. W. G. Eliot, Jr.
A large audience greeted the speak

FIRE DESTROYED RECORDS
Library Returns Which Was Sent on
Its Seafaring Journey Oct. 17, 1866,
Which Was Two Years Before the
Roosevelt Athletic Club Sent Theirs
NEW YORK. June l.-No trace of
the shin's library which President
Roosevelt presented for the American
Seamen's Friend Society in hi-- maiden
speech forty years age has been dis
covered by the office... of th. t organi
ration to-day. That this chest of
books, which was launched on the
clipper-ship "Rival" by the President
in his tenth year, may still be tossing
on the high seas was proved po-.sible
by thte return this week of a similar
library which was sent on its travels
October 17th, 1N66, two years before
the "Roosevelt Athletic Class" sent
out theirs. Records of the ,25,742
book chests circulated by the society
ince 1859 show, however, that a life
of forty-two years for these volumes
in the forecastle is exceptional.

set sail for San Francisco on Decem

ping records. Only one report, how
ever, was received by the society on
the corresponding library shipped two
years before for Galveston and just
now finally returned. On December
16th, 1873 this book chest was report
ed transferred to the "Piscatauqa," a
Gloucester fishing craft. Its return
by express from its forty-two years of
service, by Captain Israel Bartlett of
this vessel, brings the first tidings of
it for thirty-five years.
From 3,000 captains, mates and sea
men the American Seamen's Friend
Society has to-day exact records of its
loan libraries now known to be afloat.
These records show that 618,400 vol
umes have been read by 442,230 sea
men, while 129,315 jackies of Uncle
Sam's service have read 39,415 books
especially sent out in navy bottoms.
More than a hundred and fifty of
these chests of books have been re
ported as in use in U. S. Life Saving
Stations where 1,327 keepers and surf
men have read their 6,336 volumes.
Each library is numbered and regis
tered, and reports of its voyaging
ntadc to anyone who may launch and
keep it afloat by paying twenty dol
lars. A weather-beaten case of these
books is today awaiting reshipment at
the society's headquarters after hav
ing served for two years on board the
Peary Arctic Club's steamer "Roose
velt" in quest of tthe North Pole.
During the long Arctic night from
October 12th to March 6th, Lieut.
Peary declared, every book was read
and re-read by every member of his
crew. These libraries, of which al
most 300 have been sent to sea this
year, contain forty-three volumes of
travel and adventure, biography, ref
erence and religion. A bible, diction
ary, atlas and Pilgrim's Progress arc
included with many of the latest and
most suitable works of poetry and fic
tion. Half a dozen of these books are
in the Swedish, German and Norweg
ian tongues, Records of tthc 100 li
braries sent through the society as a
memorial to the heir of Aberdeen by
tthe Dowager Duchess of Aberdeen in
1870 show tthat many of the books
dedicated to this wandering "George
