THE DALLES, OREGON, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER, 15, 1896
MAINE IS ALL RIGHT
An Unprecedented .Republi
BY A PLURALITY OF 50,000 VOTES
Largest in the Btit-Poweri
Elected Governor by Over
Augusta, Me., Sept. 14. Maine has
followed the example of Vermont and
declared for the Republican ticket by the
largest majority iii its history. Accord
ing to the latest returns tonight, the
plurality for Powers, Republican, for
governor, will be-over 45,000, and prob
ably in the neighborhood of 50,000. ' .
Hon. Thomas B. Reed is re-elected to
the house by over 10,000 plurality. The
returns show a plurality of about 10,000
for Dingley-for congressman from the
Second district; over 12,000 for Milliken
in the Third district, and practically the
same for Boutelle in the Fourth district.
In the state legislature, the Democrats
will apparently have less than half-a-dozen
of the representatives in the house
and not one In the senate. As antici
pated, the Republicans polled a tremen
dous vote and secured many Democratic
On the other hand many disaffected
Democrats remained at home, and only
a few voted for the nominee of the gold
Btandard wing. The Populists and the
Prohibitionist votes have been received
from only a few towns, but it is evident
that 'neither party polled as large a vote
as two years ago.
The successful candidate for governor
is the Hon. Llewellyn Powers, of Boul
ton. Republican.. The nominees of the
other powers were: Hon. Melvin P.
Frank, of Portland, Democrat; Luther
C. Bateman, of Anburn, Populist;
Ammi S. Ladd, of Calais, Prohibitionist,
and Hob. William Henry Clifford, of
Portland, gold Democrat.
Hon. Thomas B. Reed, of - Portland,
from the Fir6t district; Nelson Dingley,
of Lewiston, from the Second district ;
Seth Milliken, of Belfast, from the Third
district, and Charles A. Boutelle, of
Bangor, from the Fourth district, who
have for years represented Maine in the
national bouse, are the congressmen

Bids Opened for Constructing
W ashington, &ept. 14. At the navy
department today bids were opened for
building the three coastline battle-ships
authorized by congress at its laat ses
eion. Several prominent shipbuilders
have already arrived to witness the
opening. Among these are President
Scott, of the Union iron works ; John
Deloge, of Camden, and Charles Cramp,
of the Cramp ship works, Philadelphia
The cost of each of these vessels is lim
ited by law to $3,750,000, exclusive of
The new vessels are to be combina
tions of the best features of the Iowa and
Kearsarge, now under construction,
modified by such improvements as ex
perience has suggested. They will be
368 feet long on the water line, and
. eeventy-feet wide in the middle. The
vessels will be propelled by engines of
10,000 horse-power and will be expected
to make a speed of 16 knots an hour.
Offensively, each of the three new
ships will possess two very powerful bat
teries. The main battery will be com
posed of four 13-inch breechloading
rifles and 14 6-inch rapid-fire rifles. The
secondary battery designed to repel tor
pedo boats and light craft and to sweep
the unarmored parts of an enemy, will
consist of 16 6-pound rapid-fire guns,
fonr 12-pound rapid-fire four machine
or Gatling guns and one field piece.
In addition to this force, an allowance
of gun cotton for submarine mining and
eight automobile torpedoes to be dis
charged from the two tubes on each
broadside amidships, will be carried for

AFTER A :
Jenny Rnst is
San Diego, Cal., Sept. 14. Twoof the
happiest people in San Diego today are
James F. Rust and his daughter, Jenny,
for they have just found each other after
a separation of 10 years. ,
After her parents were divorced in
1886 Jenny was adopted by a rancher
and his wife, who live at Encindatas, 30
miles north of this city, and Rust trav
eled over the country in search of work.
From Idaho he went into Washington,
and after nine years of straggling struck
a rich mine, which he subsequently dis
posed of for a sum to a syndicate. Then
he resolved on a journey down through
Oregon and California to find his children.
He purchased a stoat buckboard and
a fine horse and lett Seattle July 3,
bound for San Diego. He had obtained
the address of one of his children at
Bakerfield, and so far as be could learn
his pet daughter, Jenny, was still at
the home of her adopted parents in this
country. On the way down, he n
across two other married children, a eon
and a daughter. . '
Coxey's Success In Speaking From
Capitol Occurs to Him.
Evansville, Ind., Sept. 14. W. J
Bryan today denied he would speak
from the steps of the national capitol.
He said he heard of such a rumor and
had telegraphed the committee in charge
of the meeting at Washington that to.do
so would not be in accord with his
"It would be a bad precedent," said
Bryan, "and one I would not wish es
tablished. So far as I know, no candi
date for presidency ever spoke at the
capitol and I do not care to be the first."
Bryan Rendered Speechless
Louisville, Sept. 14. Mr. Bryan was
seen by a representative of the Aesoci
ated Press tonight and shown the bulle
tins from the Maine election, and asked
for his views: "Just .say,"' said, he,
"that I decline to be interviewed."
