RUTH AND THE SENATOR.
Pointed her Finger and Told the
Great Man to Go.
It will be remembered that for
some time after the birth of little
Ruth Cleveland, when her father was
president, it was rumored that she
was a deaf mute. Nothing could
have been more unjust or unkind.
The rumor grew out of the displeas
ure of those who resented the with
drawal of the child fiom the White
House grounds, whore she was annoy,
ed by sightsoma.
General Wade Hampton was fond
of telling an incJloa; that entlnij
refutes the charge. On 3 day he had
been to see the president. After
leaving the room he was waiting in
the hall for the elevator reserved
for the president's own use In a lil
tle while little Ruth and her nurse
came along. He went up and spoke
to her. She was hardly 2 years old
a mere baby.
"I talked to her," said General
Hampton, "until the elevator came
in sight. Then she raised her little
hand, pointing her little finger and
said: "Go, now!" Afterwards I
laughed and told the president she;
had evidently caught the words from
him when he was tired of some per
sistent office-seeker." New York

STRIKE IS SETTLED
Trouble Ended After a Con

of the Warring Factions.
PRACTICALLY A VICTORY
FOR THE MEN.
But Still Later Returns Give the Democratic Candidate the
Governorship by From 300 to 400 Votes, and the Ore
gonian, by Editor Scott Personally, Concedes His Elec
tion, Portland, -June 5. The latest figures give Chamberlain for governor,
404 in the state. Tht Oregonian concedes 300 to 400. The Journal has
verified these figures as far as posssible, giving 404 safe. Chamberlain
carries Multnomah county by 762.
Throughout the forenoon the result was much in doubt. The returns
began to show badly for Chamberlain. Corrections from Umatilla jump
ed up Chamberlain's vote. Union county did the same and changes In
half of the counties of' the state netted a gain for Chamberlain over the
Oregonian's morning figures, which were 10 -for Chamberlain.
There was intense excitement Importunate demands for news came
from many towns and numerous persons. The status was changed a half
dozen times; first Chamberlain, then Furnish leading. Gradually the at
mosphere cleared and the Portland man -egan to climb up again. At
noon the republicans weakened and the democrats banished gloom.
At 2 o'clock your correspondent asked the Oregonian for figures.
Its answer was: "We concede Chamberlain's election by 300 to 400." Mr.
Scott personally said: "I concede It by 400 to 500."
THERE WAS HEAVY BETTING.
During the day scores of bets were made, Chamberlain men winning
immense sums, if the final count holds out as it is, as no one now doubts.
CHAMBERLAIN LEADS IN THE RACE.
Portland, June 5. The situation for Chamberlain was made exceed
ingly scaly this morning by receipt of election returns from back country
districts. At one time figures showed In favor of Furnish by 142 votes,
but inaccuracies in reports made this the case and Chamberlain still
leads In the race.
LAKE AND CURRY UNREPORTED.
Much depends upon the returns from Lake and Curry counties, which
are not yet in. In 1898 these counties gave Geer a plurality of 149 votes,
Curry giving him 58 and Lake 1 iO votes. If they do not give Furnish a
larger vote than they gave Geer, Chamberlain will win. On the other
hand, If they give the Pendleton man a much Increased vote he will bo
the governor to succeed Geer, Chamberlain being beaten by a very nar.
CHAMBERLAIN IS AHEAD.
Portland, June 5. Chamberlain's majority Is now cut down to 240,
with partial returns from every county in the state. The republicans ap
parently are willing to concede defeat, but make no statement.
OREGONIAN GAVE CHAMBERLAIN LEAD, OF 10.
Chamberlain is undoubtedly elected by at least 200 majority, the fig
ures being based upon isturns fiom every county in the state, corrections
being made to those given out this morning. In a number of counties a
complete count gave Chamberlain added majorities, thus disproving the re
port in the Oregonian this morning that he was only 10 votes In the lead.
Great excitement exists here on the governorship and, though the minor of
fices are in the same instances In doubt, no attention Is paid to any but
the head of the ticket. Both parties are looking for discrepancies and
sending out In all directions, warnings to watch the ballot and the official
count which is now progressing In most of the counties.
WHAT CAUSED THE SCARE.
Portland, June 5. The Oregonian in It" issue this morning, gave tho
following figures, which Is the news that re-created the liveliest interest In
the election returns:
Corrected returns up to 1 o'clock this morning, gave Chamberlain,
democrat, for governor, a lead of only ten votes over Furnish. No re
turns have been received from Curry, Grant, Malheur and Lake counties.
In 1898 these counties gave Geer, re-publlcan, a net majority of 116.
Late returns Increase the republican majority In the legislature,
which 6tands as follows:
Senate Republicans, 24; democrats, 6.
House Republicans, 48; democrats, 12.
Joint ballot Republicans, 72; democrats, 18.
