noon there was a large crowd of

Portland, Me., Sept. 15. Returns
from small towns and plantations in
distant parts of the state are, as usual,
coming in slowly. It is not probable
that all of them will be beard from
before tomorrow. The votes from the
cities and towns which poll more than
two-thirds of the entire vote indicates
bowever, a republican plurality of
between 48,000 and 60.000, the largest
in the history of the state. In every
county the republican ticket was suc
cessful. Almost every town shewed a
republican gain. The democratic vote
is about 40 per cent less than in 1892.
About 20 per cent of this has gone to
the republican ticket, tbe other half
are stay at homes. The vote of the
populists and prohibitionists through
out the state shows a loss from 1892 of
about 26 per cent.
The vote from SOO of the 519 cities,
towns and plantations is 60,921 for
Bowers, 27,143 for Frank. In 1894
when Cleaver was elected by the
majority of 40,000, these towns
gave the republican ticket 56,499, the
democrat c ticket 24,432, a republican
gain in plurality of 2913 this year. If
this proportion of gain is kept up, the
total vote of 124,000 is estimated to be
in round numbers as follows: Re
pulican, 83,160; democratic, 34,340;
scattering 6500, a republican plurality
Fire at McMinnville.
McMinnville, Or. Sept. 13
About 11:30 last night, the Cumber
land Presbyterian church, of this
place, was discovered on fire. In 20
minutes the whole structure was
ablaze. The fire companies were on
hand and worked nobly to save the
parsonage, which was separated from
the church by only six feet. The
parsonage was damaged considerably
by fire and water, but It was due to
ibe heroic work of tbe firemen that it
was saved at all. For a time it seem
ed tbe residence of N. E. Kegg was
doomed, and everything In it was
taken out, and his household goods
were damaged considerably. His loss
is covered by insurance. The fire
started in Rev. E. E. Thompson's
study in the church, which contained
his valuable library, and as there was
no fire or light there yesterday, it was
no doubt Incendiary. Thechuroh was
Insured for $1200; the library for $250,
aud tbe parsonage and contents for
$500. They will .probably be rebuilt.

aunt, bad arrived from Kansas two

Mr. Wm. Elkins had a close call
yesterday morning from being Instant
ly killed, and as it was his kw was
broken, besides receiving severe
bruises. He was working as usual at
the paper mill, and in attempting to

was caught someway in the machinery
striking his jaw and neck with terri
ble force, knocking him down and
breaking his left jaw. It is a great
wonder that bis neck was not broken.
