Portland, Or., June S. —With the i exception of the United States Sena- j tor, the entire Republican state tick- ! et has bfeen elected. The Senatorial I contest Is still In doubt, with H. M. j Cake, Republican, and Qeorge E. j Chamberlain, Democrat, running 1 close. Returns from ten of the 38 counties of Oregon, outside of Port land, give Chamberlain a lead of 2tii. Multaomah may give Chamber lain n majority of 600 or less. There are 14 Statement No. 1 Rep resentatives and 18 Senators in the next Legislature, according to re turn now in, ten of the Senators be ing hold overt. Prohibition carried in many coun ties which were already dry and in which the question was resubmitted. The prohibitionists gained in n num ber of counties which had been part ly wet, bnt in places like Portland, Salem, The Dalles and other Import ant centers where the question waa submitted, the local option people were defeated. In Lincoln county, formerly dry, the weta captured sev eral of the larger communltlea. In Clackamas county, where the closeat fight of ths series waa en acted, the weta lead with about 10 votea, with SO per cent of the vote to hear from. Reports from the followlnng coun ties show that they have carried as a whole for Prohibition: Polk. Malheur, Josephine, Doug las. Columbia, Wheeler, Yamhill, Tillamook, Columbia, Lane, Morrow, Union, Crook, probably Lincoln and Clackalaas. Marlon County remalna wet by a aubstantlal majority.

The appropriation for the State University has carried, and bo has the appropriation for the armories. Equal suffrage has lost again, but the recall Is running well, also the' amendment to the constitution to in crease the number of Supreme Judges. The corrupt-practice act to limit the amount of money spent by candidates in election has probably carried. Information on the amend ments, however, is unsatisfactory and there will be nothing definite on these questions until the complete returns are in. Cake has carried the following counties: Coos, 39; Douglas, 34; Josephine, 100; Lane, 24-7; Lincoln, 17; Marion, 50; Tillamook, 81; Uma tilla, 249; Washlnngton, 91; Wheel er, 96. Chamberlain has carried Benton, 26; Clackamas, 229; Clatsop, 250; Crook, 164; Jackson, 139; Malheur, 100; Union, 64; Yamhill, 24. Counties not heard from are; Ba ker, Columbia, Curry, Qllllam, Har ney, Grant, Klamath, Lake, Linn, Morrow, Sherman, Wallowa and Wasco. Multnomah looks like Cham berlain. Aside from the Senatorial fight, the Republican ticket made a clean sweep from Supreme Judge to Rail road Commissioner. W. R. Ellis was elected Representative from the Sec ond Congressional District by an Jm aense majority. J. W. Bailey was again re-elected to the office of State ; Food and Dairy Commissioner. Clyde B. Jkltchison has been elected Rail road Commissioner, with A. N. Ham ilton, who was defeated in Repub lican primaries for the nomination, as seeond. With many counties yet to hear from, the Statement No. 1 members have an excellent opportunity of controlling tie Legislature. They have 18 members of the Senate, against five Anti-Statement Senators nd three unpledged. This leav s our Senators to be heard from. In •he House there are 27 Statement No. 1 members, eight anti-statement and four unpledged. This leaves 21 members to be heard from. With the 18 in the Senate and 27 in the House, there are 45 Statement No. 1 men already known to be elected, which lacks Just one of enough to control. With complete returns in from on!S 62 precincts, in few of which •as a heavy voe cast, the lnd'ca tions are that the entire Republican ticket In Multnomah County has been victorious.

The bill gave rise to a good deal of criticism of the Speaker by several Democrats, as they charged that he showed favorit ism in allowing that particular meas ure to be consider while others of a simillar character must remain in committee. 1 Humphrey, of Washington, urged I the passage of the bill, pleading that the hatcheries were necessary In order to prevent the salmon from becoming extinct. | The bill was opposed by Williams, Spight and Canler of Mississippi. It was supported by Payne of New York, who said that It was a case of legislating for the whole country. Acting presumably upon the ad vice of Secretary Edward A. Moselsy the Interstate Commerce Commis sion has isued a rule to the effect that none but union men shall re ceive appointments as Inspectors un der the safety appliance act. This action has aroused the greatest In dignation among railway managers, who Insist that it is another attempt on part of the commission to curry favor with the labor organization It is understood that a majority of commission was strongly opposed to to making this official recognition of railway labor organizations.
