PoitTLAND, Juno 0. The olllclnl
vote or Curry county, received Satur
day night gives Tongue 283, Vander
hurg, 133. Tongue's 'plurality In the
district Is now 44 votes. Tho olllclnl
returns have been received from nil
but five counties and from these coun
ties complete returns havo been re
ceived. Unless the olllclnl count In
these live counties changes the result
Is that Tonguo Is elected.
IN MAKION COUNTY.
The work on tho official count was
resumed at tho court house today, by
Deputy Clerk Allen and Justices John
son and IlayB of Woodburn. It Is
doubtful if any preclnts will bo
thrown out, unless an action Is
brought to compel tho canvassing
board to do so. In the faco of defect
ive returns,' tho fact seems to bo that
somo of tho ofllccrs wcro sworn,
although tho poll books do not show It.
All day Sunday and today tho Popu
lists and somo silver Republicans who
voted for Vandcrburg havo been in
tho city and aro enraged not a little J
at what they declare Is an effort to
countout their man. Populist leaders
say tho fact that they were not
allowed to name one of tho precinct
judges, and tho fact that all tho mis
takes discovered havo been on tho
side of tho Republican cnndldate, Is
ovidencoof Intentional fraud.
A petition was circulated for signers
Sunday to ask tho state officials to
not Issue a certlllcatc of election
until there can bo a recount of tho
ballots. If cither Tonguo or Vander
burg had 2,000 plurality tho little
mistakes discovered in footing tho
precincts by tho county boards of
canvassers would not havo been com
mented upon. As it ls,a great deal of
excitement Is caused by tho close con
test. MARION PRECINCT.
Mr. A. II. Cornelius was In town
today and 6ald at tho Marlon precinct
election tho officers wero sworn Just
as they always havo been in tho past.
Ho says if thero was nny irregularity
it was unintentional. Sid Russell,
tho chairman, swore all tho other
officers and he was then sworn by one
of the Judges. The return Itself is
Editor Journal! If tho people
cannot get u fair count from an
official board of canvassers, they want
to know the reason why. All parties
ought to bo represented on that
board, and if the Republican party
will not give tho people u fair show
they will bo wiped out of power In
Oregon. Tho people will not stand
it to have their rights taken from

thero Is "amplo proof that a high

fraudulently counted out, and Hon.
Thos. H. Tonguo Is being, counted In,

alarms of llro added to tho terror of
the situation. Thousands of sparrows
