A laborer at the Cascades got into a
row with some Chinamen this morning
at Seufert's cannery, resulting in a war
rant for bis arrest by A. A. Urquhart,
who made the arrest this afternoon.
While the man was working at a fish
wheel a chinaman accidentally spat in
his hat.' He mistook the Chinaman's
intent and commenced beating him,
finally pushing him down a shaft about
thirty feet deep, ; This ' made the boss
Chinaman mad and he floored the white
man with an iron bolt, nearly breaking
his jaw and splitting bis ear the entire

G. W. M'COY LOCKED UP,
The Fonndfr of the Famous Ditch Is
Now In the County Jail.
Mr. G. W. McCoy, founder of the Mc
Coy ditch, occupies a cell in the county
jiil. He was arrested Saturday in Port
land by Sheriff Driver and brought Jo
this city, on a warrant charging him
with obtaining money under false pre
tenses. Many of the workmen who
have, been employed on the ditch are
now in the city, and, by the way, voted
at the polls yesterdav. We are in
formed that as long' as these men are
here Mr. McCoy will remain in jail,' as
the officers fear personal violence. The
McCoy ditch workmen failed, to get
their money for labor performed, though
who is to blame will yet have to be as
certained. . . - ,

Almost the Entire - Republican Ticket
- Elected In Wasco County. -'
Wasco county declared in no uncer
tain terms what jt believes is responsi
ble for the hard times noxv afflicting the
country, and that it is willing, nay nnx
ious, to place the reins of government
once' more in the hands of the Republi
can party, that party ud-r which it haJ
Renjoyed uninterrupted prosperity until
Cleveland's election the first time.
' For congressman Bennett has, so far
as heard from, a small plurality, but the
precincts yet to be heard from will
lessen that plurality, arid perhaps over
turn it. But this being Bennett's home,
has an influence to swell his vote locali
ty. News from Portland indicates to
a certainly the election of Hon. W. R.
Bean' for supreme judge, Jayne. for
prosecuting attorney, Michell ' for j lint
senator and Huntington for joint rep
resentative are among the certainties,
while the election of Jones is almost as
sured. The only defection on the Re
publican senatorial ticket is W. H.J
Moore of Sherman county, and there i
yet some hope for him. .
ine county tic et is almost a c!e
sweep, li not lully eo. UlaKeley ga4e
Mays a close race for county judge, bit
indications point to the election of Mays
Driver for sheriff is re-elected by a hand
some majority. Kelsay for clerk and
Gilbert for county echool superintendent
got surprisingly large votes. ., The . bal
ance of the Republican county ticket ib
probably .elected, though the vote fot
assessor is very close, and will be de
cided by the precincts yet to be heard
: For precinct officers the Democratic
candidates were eleeted. In the. case of
justice of the peace this was caueed by
the large independent vote for Davis,
who did not fall far behind either the
Republican or Democratic . nominee.
Filloon received 369 votes, Farlev 326
and Davis 304.
For constable Hill received 562 to
Wiley's 463. ; ' .
1 The result as a whole is more than
satisfactory; and indicates the triumph
in November of the grand old . Republi
can party through t the states.

Pobtland, June 2. Never have tickets
in Oregon been so scratched as at the
election held yesterday. . The count is
progressing with' phenomenal slowness
throughout the state. The only things
certain are that 'the Republicans have
elected Bean supreme judge and. baa
been successful in most counties with
local officers.' '. - --,".. -i j
t it is impossible yet to determine
whether the Republicans will control the
next legislature or whether it will be in
