Is Close
Reportt From Portland at an Early
Hour This Morning Predict Defeat
of Wlthycombe, Republi
can ' Candidate
By Associated Press.
PORTLAND, Ore., June 4.— At 11:30
p. m, there are Indications that Gov.
George E. Chamberlain, Democrat, Is
re-elected over Dr. James Wlthycombe,
Jonathan Bourne, Jr., Republican, ap
peared to be fairly certain of receiving
the popular nomination for JJnlted
States senator over John M. Gearln,
Democrat, incumbent.
In the congressional race both the
Republican candidates are slightly in
the lead.
These estimates are based on very
meager returns, but Bourne Is reported
ahead in nearly every part of the state;
this with the fact that in the same
precincts in which Mr. Bourne leads,
Governor Chamberlain is also leading
Dr. Wlthycombe hy a greater margin
than that of Bourne over Gearin, seems
to justify the prediction made.
The equal suffrage amendment to the
state constitution appears to have been
defeated by a large majority.

WASHINGTON, June 4.— Speaker
Cannon has demonstrated a .resentful
feeling toward Callfornians during the
past few days. '
He has killed the 5 per cent school
land bill for this session, and today,
without apparent reason, cut off con
sideration of the Little bill, appropriat
ing $10,000 for monument to Commodore
Sloat at Monterey, after permitting sev
eral similar bills to pass and after he
had promised to recognize the Sloat bill.
The speaker's bad feeling is under
stood to be caused by the Caltfornlans'
attitude on the statehood bill. He has
his heart set on the admission of New
Mexico and Arizona as single state,
bceause he passionately opposed any
increase of United States senators.
He believes the senate is already too
strong as compared with the house, and
he fears If New Mexico and Arizona
are not forced Into the union as one
state they will be admitted separately
later if Democrats should get control
of congress.
A senator said today that Speaker

CHICAGO, June 4.— "We're in for a

saloon-keeping aldermen so ashamed of
themselves and their business that they
won't dare show themselves in the
streets, and we're going to aro,use such
a white-hot hatred against the liquor
traffic in the Christian church that it
will sweep every saloon out of this

With this platform" E. Tennyson

nor's call for the extra session have

diciary committee embracing legisla
tion for the city of San Francisco.
In neither branch of the legislature

economy were numerous today. A
resolution by Johns of San Luis Obispo

justment of commercial, legal and other
interests disturbed by the period of

afternoon gave prolonged consideration.

meeting, where It was amended in many
minor .respects, will crowd the calen

Claim Set Up That Millionaire's
Brother Waa Cheated Out of
$608,000 by Former'a
By Agsoclnted Press.
practically Amounts to a contest of the
vast Stanford estate was filed In the
county clerk's office this morning by
Annie Stanford, a niece of the sen
ator, against Charles Gardner Lathrop,
Timothy Hopkins, Joseph D. Grant,
Whltelaw Reid and T. O. Crothera, as
executors of the will of the late Jane
Li. Stanford. ,
Tho action takes the form of a suit
for $108,000 accruing to Asa Stanford
since the death of his brother and the
restitution of 1600,000 worth of stock
alleged to have been fraudulently
withheld hy Mrs. Stanford to cheat her
brother-in-law in his old age and des
The complaint fairly bristles with
sensational charges. It accuses Mrs.
Stanford of conspiracy and fraud of
the most aggravates nature and re
hearses the story of an old man cheated
out of the fruits of his labors, In con
stant apprehension of the poor house
and finally driven into -the grave by the
harsh treatment of his brother's widow.
Unjustly Treated
According to the plaintiff, A. Stan
ford did not receive just treatment
from Mrs. Stanford after the death of
the latter's husband.
The chronicle begins as far back as
1869, when Asa Stanford was one of
his brother's directors of the Central
Pacific railroad, of which his brother,
was the founder and president. At
the. solicitation of Leland Stanford he
■withdrew from his position and sur
rendered his sixth share of the total
For this transfer of power and stock
Leland Stanford agreed to pay his
brother $1,000 a month during his life
time and to leave him $500,000 worth of
stock at his death.
This agreement was faithfully exe
cuted by the senator, who Invariably
made the monthly payments and left
$500,000 worth of the capital stock in
his safe to be paid to his brother when
he should pass' away.
Did Not Pay Stipend
It Is set forth in the p papers which
were -filed today that ; Mrs. Stanford
not only took possession of the stock
that is said to have been left her
brother-in-law, but refused to pay him
the thousand dollar monthly stipend. .
After Asa Stanford had made fre
quent demands for the money It is
said he was told that Senator Stan
ford had hardly left enough property
to pay the debts he had incurred and
that if his claim were pressed he would
throw the estate Into bankruptcy.
Finally, it Is stated, Asa Stanford
released all his claims against the es
tate for a consideration of $10,000.
Annie P. Stanford asks that the re
lease signed by Asa Stanford be de
clared void and delivered to her along
with the letter he ■was forced to sign,
that It may be destroyed.
She demands $100,000 which accrued
in the nine years intervening between
the death of Leland Stanford and his
brother, and finally she asks for the
questioned stock in the Central Pacific
or $500,000 as an equivalent.
Her attorneys are Cameron H. King:
and Henry J. Power.

So Says Former Mayor Phelan in Mes
sage to New York — Four Million,
Not Fifteen Million Dollars,
Special to The Herald.
NEW YORK, June 4.— James D. Phe
lan, chairman of the relief committee
at San Francisco, in a telegram today
to Herman Oelrichs stated that the
city was in immediate need of funds.
Coming on the heels of the action of
the San Francisco banks last week in
starting to return $30,000,000 borrowed
money to New York bankers, the mes
sage caused surprise.
The San Francisco banks in the last
few days havi sent back more than
$5,000,000, and it is said on "Wall street
that the balance Is expected in a few
weeks. When the money went from
New York to San' Francisco It was un
derstood that It could be kept as long
as it was needed and for any purpose.
"There are funds in the east held
specially for rehabilitation of which
we have knowledge," says Phelan's
message, "but which have not been
turned over to us. ■ We have been in
communication with parties and we
are promised such funds. . -. - •• I
"Relief work at once accomplished,
we Intend to Incorporate and use all
available funds for rebuilding. This
will be a' most important and costly
work." . i
Phelan says the general Impression
that $15,000,000 has been received by
the San Francisco committee for re
lief work is erroneous, only $4,000,000
having come In. He advises New York
to refrain from sending any more sup
plies, but all the money that can be
forwarded will be appreciated.

President Roosevelt today sent; the

"To the Senate and House of Repre-
"I transmit herewith the report of
Mr. James Bronson Reynolds and
Commissioner Charles P. Nelll, the
special committee -whom ■ I appointed
to Investigate the conditions In the
stockyards of Chicago and report
thereon to me.
"This report is of a preliminary !na-*<

it shows the urgent need of immediate;.:
action by congress in the direction- of £
providing a drastic and thorough

brought to my attention they showed

immediate Investigation by men not
connected with the bureau, and ac- '
cordlngly appointed Messrs. Reynolds

Now Making Examination
"It was Impossible under the exist

be done by the bureau of animal Indus

the way In which the work actually
was done. Before I had received the
report of Messrs. Reynolds and Neill
I had directed that labels placed upon,
any package of meat food- products
should state only that the carcass of
