BE WISE IN TIME-TRY
New York With returns missing
Saturday from only one congressional
district in the United States, the Re
publicans and Democrats each had
elected 215 representatives. The vote
in New Mexico, which is still in doubt,
probably will determine which party is
to have a plurality of one over the ottv
er. The present member from New
Mexico is a Republican.
The balance in the next house will
be held by four men, one a Progres
sive-Protectionist from Louisiana, one
an Independent from Massachusetts,
one a Progresssive from Minnesota and
the other a Socialist from New York.
Their action apparently will determine
the choice of a speaker, as well as the
fate of legislation which is supported
or opposed on purely party lines.
In addition to the hope of electing a
congressman-at-large from New Mex
ico, the Democrats had one grain of
comfort. It was that an official count
may disclose that Thomas J. Scully
has been re-elected from the Third
New Jersey district. They contend
the chances were that Scully had been
the victor by a few votes over Robert
Carson, his Republican opponent, to
whom the election previously had been
conceded by a narrow margin.
A reversal in Iowa, where complete
returns showed the election of George
C. Scott, Republican, over Congress
man Tom Steele, in the Eleventh dis
trict, and the election of Republicans
in the Second and Third West Virginia
districts, brought about the present
tie. Four members of other parties
have been elected.
Late returns appeared further to
complicate the congressional situation.
Congressman James J. Britt, Republi
can, of the Tenth North Carolina dis
trict, was reported to have defeated
his Democratic opponent, whose elec
tion previously had been conceded.
The senate remains unchanged, 54
Democrats to 42 Republicans.
Villa's Gains Delay Decision of
Atlantic City, N. J. Confirmation
of reports of the Increased strength of
various reactionary movements in
Mexico served to oftset, Saturday, the
apparent determination of the Mexican-American
joint commission to
effect an early adjustment of the prob
lem the two governments are facing.
Until official reports reveal the
truth of the stories of Villa's successes
in the North and of the progress made
by other reactionaries in the south,
there appeared a probability that an
agreement would be entered into, per
haps next week. That appeared less
likely, and the chance of a formal ad
journment without an agreement other
than one of the most general character
seemed more probable.
Reports received by the Americans
from official sources, and others re
ceived by the Mexicans from their
government, dealing with the activi
ties of Villa, were studied at the con
ference Saturday. The. result of the
comparison of the reports was to dis
close that General Carranza is now
conducting a defensive campaign
against Villa with a battle at Escalon
imminent, instead of prosecuting an
offensive campaign against him.
From the source come reports, ac
cepted as reliable, that Felix Diaz'
forces are in possession of Rincon An
tonio, a station on the Tehuantepec
railway, which extends from Salina
Crua, on the Pacific, to Puerto Mexico,
on the. Gulf of Mexico. Diaz was re
ported in the state of Chiapas. It was
believed that the men in command of

OREGON GOES REPUBLICAN
FROM TOP TO BOTTOM
Portland, Nov. 9. Oregon's five
electoral votes will go to Charles E,
Hughes. He will carry the Btate over
President Wilson by a plurality of ap
proximately 7500 votes. The figure
may be as high as 8000, but not more.
Returns from every county In the
state, excepting Harney county, give
Hughe's a lead of 6272. The present
figures are: Huhges, 105,898; Wil
These returns represent approxi
mately per cent of the vote cast,
The missing precincts are in the out
lying districts of the state, including
somejn Multnomah county, and are
not expected to affect the result much
Hughes has carried the outside coun
ties by a plurality well over 2000 and
is maintaining his early lead in this

CONTROL OF HOUSE IS CLOSE;
DEMOCRATS LEAD IN SENATE
New York, Nov. 9 Although the
Democrat b have assurance of control
of the senate by a working majority, 1
control of the house was still in doubt
at an early hour today. The Demo
crats had made slight gains however
in the late returns in Montana and
Kansas. At 1 o'clock 208 Democrats,
198 Republicans. 2 Progressives. 1 So
cialist and 1 Independent had been
elected, with 25 congressional districts
yet to be heard from. Republicans
did not give up hope of winning . control.
The situation in the house at this
hour is so indefinite that it is impossi
ble to declare whether the Democrats
will maintain control. If they do it is
certain to be by a greatly reduced
margin and one that will scarcely give
a good working majority. In fact, un
less Democratic gains are made in the
districts yet undecided, independent
minority members might seriously in
terfere with the re-election of Speaker
Clark and the organization of import

1,500,000 Pounds of Wool

Involving about 1,500,000 pounds of

days. One of the transfers was a

Bold have been held here since early
summer by the Columbia Basin Wool
Warehouse company and the Portland
Wool Warehouse company. The prices
realized were not made public, but it
is known they were the highest prices
ever paid for wool in this state.
The bulk of the wool sold went to
Eastern woolen mills, but Boston deal
ers also secured several large lots.
Three or four million pounds remain
unsold in the local warehouses.
Stocks of wool in Portland have
been larger than anywhere else In the
West, except Chicago, ' and this fact
has turned the attention of buyers to
this city. This is what the wool men
and warehouse men of Oregon have
been striving for, the making of Port
land a wool center where stocks could
be accumulated and sold direct to the
As the holders of the wools just sold
have realized a good advance over the
prices prevailing during the early part
of the season, they have demonstrated
their wisdom this time, at least in
not taking first offers, but in holding
for the late market.

In compiling his forthcoming bien
nial report, Superintendent of Public
Instruction J. A. Churchill, finds that
there are 1628 teachers in Oregon who
hold life state certificates or life diplo
mas. The number of teachers holding
life papers is 112 greater than in 1916.
! The regularity with which the chil
dren attend school in Oregon is worthy
of notice. Through the efforts of the
country teachers to keep the attend
ance up to 92 per cent, the average re
quired before a school may be consid
ered standard, the percentage of daily
attendance in the rural schools is
slightly over 90 per cent, which is
higher than in any other state in the
United States. The percentage of at
tendance in the city schools is still
higher, so that the average attendance
for the entire state is 94.8 per cent.

was 2,317,410 less last year than dur
