hours dragged along, some showing
heavy majorities for Chamberlain,
some equally good for Furnish, but
all the time it was becoming more
and more evident that the Eastern
Oregon candidate was losing ground
in his own county, and when morn
ing dawned it was conceded that
Chamberlain's majority in Umatilla
county would be anywhere from 200
The first 28 precincts heard from
out , of the 35 in this county, gave
Chamberlain a plurality of 276 over
Furnish, and while it was believed
that the remaining seven precincts
might cut this down somewhat it
was seen that they could not change
the ultimate result.
The precincts heard from up to
the hour of going to press and their
respective votes for the two leading
gubernatorial candidates are as fol

State Returns Scattered.
As yet the returns from other coun
ties on the state ticket are but frag
mentary, owing to the length of the
ticket and the long time required to
make the count. Another cause of de-'
lay in getting complete returns Ib
that many of those who are interest
ed in some particular candidate are
sending in only the figures regarding
their favorite and omitting any refer
ence to the other candidates.
Consequently it is impossible to
give any accurate figures . regarding
the vote in the different counties at
this time. By tomorrow evening,
however, practically full returns
should be available.
At 2 o'clock this afternoon the lat
est figures available at democratic
headquarters gave Chamberlain the
state by" 4000 majority and Multno
mah county by 1500.
Raley May Be Elected.
The latest returns from different
parts of the state, taken with the
splendid vote given J. H. Raley, the
democratic candidate for attorney-
general, In Umatilla county, wherein
he receives a majority of 750 votes
over his republican opponent, gives
good grounds for hope of the election
of Mr. Raley.

Sumpter, Or., June 3. J. H. Rob

for representative on the democratic
ticket, is 28 votes ahead of George
Chandler, his republican opponent,
with two or three precincts to hear
from, which will increase Mr. Rob
bins' plurality to about 50.

HOW THEY FEEL ABOUT IT.

the East Oregoniau a few days pre

"I never felt better or had less."

A. D. Stillman, democratic central
committeeman, was the next man

L. B. Rceder.
"The result of tho election was duo
