THE FIGHT EXCEEDINGLY BITTER
The Simon Forces Beat the Hume-Fruk-Mlnto
Portland, April 2. Republican pri
maries today give promise of being the
moBt hotly couteated in the history of
the county. There are two tickets in
the field, Simon and Mitchell. The Si
mon ticket is headed "For Low Taxes."
The Mitchell ticket for J. H. Mitchell."
The Simon forces have control of the
polling places, while the others have
control of the police and special deputy
sheriffs to the number of four hundred.
Should any underhanded work be at
tempted serious trouble is threatened.
A noticeable thing is the presence of a
large number of strange men in the city
who, it is charged, have been brought
here for the sole surpose of voting both
early and often. Both sides are confi
dent and deter'n'.isJ.
At 2 o'clock an attempt was made by
the police to arrest Larry Sullivan, a
sailor boarding house keeper, for intimi
dating voters in the Second ward. The
polling place is located in Sullivan's
bearding honse and when the officer ap
proached Sullivan, he retreated into an
upper Btory of his "castle," and secur
ing his shot gun announced to the surg
ing crowd that the first man who at
- tempted to arrest him would be killed.
He took a seat in the second story
window, shotgun in hand, and, sur
rounded by eeveral of his peelere,
watched the proceedings.
In the Third Ward Pete Grant is di
recting affairs for the Simon faction.
The crowd is lined up for blocks away
and it is probable many voters will be
kept from the polls.
The principal points of interest on the
west side of the river are at the Second
and Third wards. Here the voters are
lined up for about two blocks waiting
their chance. Voting is very slow ow
ing to the number of challenges and the
manifest attempt to keep voters from
voting. In the lines are all conditions
and classes of men. Business men are
sandwiched in between morphine fiends
and hoboes. No attempts at repeating
have been discoverel yet. Simon is con
ducting the fight in the Second ward in
Voting was suspended in the Eleventh
ward (Albina) late this afternoon by
arresting one of the judges.
Among the placards on the many
- hacks at the polling places "taxpayers
against taxeaters" is the most conspicu
ous. Long before the polls opened mot
ley crowds of intending voters gathered.
At some polling "places objection was
made to some of the judges but without
avail. Simon men would not yield.
The polls opened at 1 o'clock and. the
The Oregonian today devotes six col
umns of its space to the results of the
primary elections. We excerpt the fol
lowing: The Frank-Hume-Miato combine was
defeated at the Republican primaries
yesterday by the taxpaj-ere, notwith
standing a most desperate and violent
means adopted by the office-holders'
rinz to defeat the will of the Republican
party, and to control the city and county
. convention. The scenes at a majority of
the polling places were without parallel
in the history of the Northwest. The
entire police force of the city ' was de
voted to the use of the ring, and, by
most flagrant and indecent misuse of its
authority, intimidated voters." threat
ened, and even assaulted judges, and
abetted and connived at violence, fraud
and outrage. ' There was no pretense on
Highest of all in Leavening Power. Latest U. S. Gov't Report
the part of the bine-coated minions of
the law that they represented the in
terest of the people at large; but they
openly espoused the cause of the com
bine and used all the means in their
power to secure its success. "
The total number of votes cast waa
6569. The county and city convention,
to be held Saturday, will number' 124
delegates, of which the taxpayers will
have at least 80 votes. The taxpayers
carried the first, second, fourth, fifth,
sixth, part of the eighth, and the tenth
wards, in the city, and the Frank-Hume-Minto
combine carried the third,
seventh, part of the eighth, ninth and
eleventh wards. The taxpayers have 68
votes in the city convention ; the com
bine 35 votes.
Today was marked by many sensa
tional episodes. In Upper Albina the
police deliberately broke into the poll
ing place, confiscated the ballot-box, ar
rested the judges, and dragged them to
the central station, because they refused
Democratic rote. In the second ward
there was a vast mob of heelers, thugs,
vagrants and law-breakers of all kinds,
and with the able and willic assistance'
of the police, they had the space in front
of "the voting place all day, and drove
hundreds of citizens from the polls.
Only 293 votes were cast, though at least
1000 Republicans were on hand ready to
vote. These votes were cast largely by
the riff-raff, who held their places in
line and managed to put in a ticket
when it was not rejected by the judges.
Thi.s primary was the scene of several
exciting episodes, and was a center of
uproar and commotion all day. "
No one was killed. The same scenes
were repeated with somewhat less evi
dence of violence, at third ward. All
was comparatively quiet in the first,
fourth, fifth and sixth wards, in which a
free expression of Republican opinion
was allowed, and which, in consequence,
were carried by the taxpayers. In the
seventh ward, there were disgraceful
scenes of violence. On the East Side,
except in Albina, there was compara
tive quiet. Because of the tactics of the
police, not more than one-fifth of the
fall Republican vote was cast north of
Finar Del Rio Barnad.
Havana, April 2. The capture of Pin
ar del Rio and Santa Clara by the insur
gents, who occupied them several hours
and left them in flames, is a severe blow
to tbe Spanish armies. General Fando
and General Juarez Valdez, the military
governors of the destroyed cities, have
been ordered to return to Spain by Gen
eral Weyler. The capt. -general is badly
worried over the situation. He thought
be had Pinar del Rio so strongly guarded
that it was absolutely impossible for
Maceo's forces to break in. But in the
middle of the night of March 25 they
came and literally laid tbe townjin ashes.
Of several hundred residences, not more
than a couple of dozen were left unin
jured. ' '

edy referred to and want their customers

always starts in the head and afterwards
extends to the throat and lungs. By
nsing this remedy freely as soon as the
cold has been contracted it will cure the
cold at once and prevent it from extend
