Elections in the State of Ore gon. Lord Has a Big Plurality for Governor. Tbe Oonnf lnc la Slow aad tha Flood Freveate th* Beady Com ing la ef Kb lafte By the Associated Press. Portland, Ore., Jnne 4.—The elec tion in this state today was a great vic tory for the Republicans. Jndge Lord, Republican for governor, is elected by not less than 15,000 plurality. The counting is slow and in this city tbe connt will not be completed before Wednesday night. At 1 a. m. only 1000 votes out of 16 000 in this city had been counted. Of these Lord received 628, Galloway, Democrat, 250, and Pierce. Populist, 202. If this ratio is kept np Lord's plurality in tbe city will be 4500. For congress in this oity Ellis, Repub lican, has 614; Ralev, Democrat, 206; Waldrop, Populist, 180. For mayor, Frank, Republican, 505; Inman, Democrat and Populist, 389; Honeyman, Independent, 96. The entire Republican legislative ticket in this county is elected, and from meagre returns outside this city it is be lieved tbe Republicans will control both branches of the legislature. Owing to the flood this city is entirely ont off from Eastern Oregon, and not a word of election news bas been received from more than half of tbe state. Out of 300 votes connted in this city, Judge Lord, Republican, for governor, received 180. If this ratio is maintained throughout the state he will have a clear majority over all other candidates, and a plurality of more than 15,000. The entire Republican state ticket is elected. The vote for Ellis, Rep., for congress in tbe Second district is slightly below that of the eovernor, but bis plurality would not be short of 2000. Hermann, Rep., for congress in the First district will have at least 1500 plurality. George P. Frank, Rep., is elected plurality. Portland, Ore., June 4. —Based on the few scattering returns received np to 10:30, Lord's (Rep.) plurality for gov error will not fall short of 5000 and may reach 10,000. _ LIVELY ELECTION. Ths Republican! Make a Sweep In Oregon Thia Time. Portland, Jane 4.—The most excit ing election in the history of the state took place today. Lord, Republican, for governor, is nndonbtedly elected by a large plurality. The entire Republican state ticket is elected, with the possible exception of Irwin for superintendent of schools. The legislature will be very close and the Populists may hold tbe balance of power in tbe senate, though the Republicans claim they have a ma jority in both houses. Herrmann, Republican, is returned to congress from the first district by from lvii to 2000 majority. Ellis, Republican, is in tbe lead in the Second district, but the greater part of tbe Second district is cut off by. the flood and no returns will be received for several days. ARMOR PLATES. The Investigation ot tha Monterey's CoTerlng Kesumeda Washington, Jnne 4.—The armor plate investigation was resumed today. Lieutenant W. 0. Oowles, of Marble head, viae the first, witness. He wae appointed inspector at tbe Homestead wotka in 1893. The first plates had been famished in January, 1892. While it would have been possible to re-treat iho plates, the lieutenant did not think it hud been done. The witness eaid be never knew of test plates being re-treated. In his opinion every plate of the armor now on the warships would come up to the min imum tests. The witness said he had inspected all the plates on the Monterey, not one of which was defective so as to endanger the chip in time of war. One plate had a huge blow-bole about 18 inches in length. Chairman Cummings remarked that the hole waa large enough to receive a baby's head. Lieutenant Holcomb of tbe navy, one of the inspectors of the Carnegie works, Btated that his observation led him to the conclusion that tbe Carnegie com pany and the government were at the mercy of the employees. The latter could commit irregularities in spite of tbe company or the government. Officers of tbe company told the witness that workmen were using false scalps and bad material In order to "get even with the company for the re sults of the ttrike of '91. Lieutenant Holcomb 3aid rive government inspectors could trace every plate from the time it was an ingot until it was finished armor Tbe witness said no underhand work was beiug practiced now at tbe Carnegie works. He had observed there was a bitter feeling among the workmen against the Carnegie company. Further testimony will be taken on Wednesday. Presbyterian League.

Beleaa* of Tare* Hostages Whom Thoy Bad Kidnaped to otreat Fresldeat Oaldarwood's Supposed Arrest. Cripple Ckickk, Colo., June 4.—A skirmißh took plaoe today between three miners and five deputies, thrown out in advance of tbe main bodies as pickets. John Davis, a miner, was Bhot in tbe arm and seriously injured. Be sides taking President Woods of tbe Victor Towusite company in custody, the miners last night captured Clarence O. Finch, county superintendent of schools, and D. E. Wilkins, a Colorado Springs school teacher. They are held prisoners as hostages for President Cal derwood or any other miners who may be arrested. John Skaten, editor of the Herald, organ of tbe Miners' union, has been arrested by deputies. There is a reign of terror in tbis city, and women and children are being removed to dlbcob of safety. Seventy-eight Fre mont county minera today joined the j orce on Bull Hill. _ the leaders of the strikers today and in terceded for the release of Mr. Woods, wbo, they represented, bad always em ployed nnion men and treated tbem well. Upon learning that President Calderwood ot their union bad not been arrested, the strikers released their prisoners, Messrs. Wood, Finch and Wilkins, whom tbey were holding as hostages. Mr. Finch left immediately for Colorado Springe, vowing to swear out warrants for his captors. The strikers have spent today in per fecting their defenses. Their forces were increased today by 300 men, wbo came from the direction of Pueblo. Women and children have been streaming towards this place from Victor and Alt man. Tbe miners have loaded beer kegs with dynamite, scrap iron and rail road spikes, and have placed them on the crests of Globe bill and Battle moun *•!.?• ... The defensive movements of the strikers have been decided upon, and are about as follows: Mounted scouts, wbo are spread out in all directions, npon discovering tbe advance of tbe deputies will hasten to camp with the information A prearranged signal will be sounded on the steam whistle at Pike's Peak mine, when the strikers will take their rlesignated positions. The skirmishers will fall back slowly, keep ing the deputies engaged until they reach the bairicades erected at the foot of Bull Hill. Behind the barricades the strikers will make a stand, defending themselves with guns and bombs. If driven from the barricades, they will hasten up the slope to the fort. Should the deputies follow them, the dynamite mines, which have been planted at every few yards, will be exploded. WAITE WANTS ADVICE. Denver, June 4.—Governor Waite has requested Assistant State's Attorney Sales and Judge Stephen A. Pratt to give him an opinion on the Cripple Creek situation and his duty ac gov ernor. They havo replied to the effect that the governor should grant Sheriff Bowers' demand for troops to aid him in disarming the strikers What action the governor will take has not been an nounced. THERE WAS NO CONFLICT. Cripple Crkkk, June 4.—A1l rumors of a conflict between strikers and depu ties are erroneous. There has been no conflict and there is no likelihood that there will be one before tomorrow or Wednesday. The deputies are awaiting rifles, a Galling gun and ammunition, which will not reach tbem before to morrow, and it is no part of tbe strikers' plans to make an attempt upon the deputies. reinforcements. Rico, Jnne 4.—Fifty miners armed with Winchesters and having sufficient provisions to last several days, left here today to reinforce the striking miners on Bull' bill. The deputies will probably attempt to prevent their reaching the stronghold of the miners.

T., Jnne 4.—The dis bursement ol tbe $6,500,000 to the Cherokee Indians began here today. I* will take tbe treasurer two weeks to com plete payment at this station, after which he will go to other points and .distribute the funds until each Indian has received his per capita. One million Bix hundred thousand dollars now re poses in the treasury office and 100 mem bers of tne Cherokee guards, the bui eat shots in tbe service, patrol the grounds, the upper and lower corridors of the state bouse and the principal streets of tbe town. Should the Daltons or any gam attempt to carry away tbe treasury they would be riddled with bnlleta be fore they oonld walk across the street. None but persons of the Cherokee blood are allowed In tbe state houee while the payment is going on. At 10 oclock this morning the pay ment began. All day Friday, Saturday and Sunday the Cherokeescame pouring in, most of tbem camping oat of town. During the night preceding the opening of the disbursing, flaming torohes, stuck in the ground, threw a weird light upon the guards patrolling the streets. Among the crowds were Cherokees of all ages. Every infant, by the way, draws its per capita. $205.68, tbe same as any adult. It is said there have been 500 Cherokee babies bom within tbe last three months and some of tbem are not over 24 hours old, and they will also come in ior their The districts now being paid are the Tahlequeh and the Going Snake dist ricts.

After getting his money be haa to pass the uanntU* ol the BOll»»*o»e ot the va.Tko.tu firma who have debtors among the Cherokees. The Indians became indignant this evening and tore down the wooden rail ing tbat had been erected to permit tbe collectors to dun the Indians. One man was standing in line ready to oatcb bis debtor. He had out over $250,000 and he freely admitted that be could lose 25 per cent, of this and still make a good profit. There were many amnsing incidents. Those wbo proposed to pay their debts when tbey pleased would dodge under tbe ropes, along which they had to walk, and thus escape the collectors. Another, who owed a merchant $210, threw the collector a $10 bill and said: "Not another d d cent till I get ready." A weary-looking old eqnaw, who came out clutching $700 in crisp bills, was headed off by a collector, and when she got to the end of tbe line she had not a cent left. She walked away sobbing bitterly. When the treasurer closed the doors tonight $7000 bad been paid out. It will take 12 days to complete the pay ment here, and by September Ist the whole amount will have baen distrib uted. Sheriff Harris fears no trouble. MOSQUITO MATTERS. American Interests Mint.
