Complete returns have now been Q iW'i Jikfcrifthttiiii.liir , MUtxmttLtitm Cciiitrcwsmmi SATURDAY, APRIL 18. 10. 1 1S STRONG received hire from 27 precincts of j ,ni" cu,1,y theV practically repre sent tho vote of the county for the j reason that the points not yet heard from have but few votes. The sum mary of the voting ln the 27 precincts shows the following: For United States Senator II. M. Cake, 727; C. W. Fulton, 704. For Congressman W. R. Ellis, 1033; T. T. Geer, 304; George S. Shepherd, 103. For Representative of Umatilla Co. C. A. Parrett. 815; L. L. Mann, 841; C. W. Sleen, 709. For County Recorder jr. W. Hendley, 843; C. E. Comber, 442. For Coroner Ralph Folsom, 764; C. W. Li Count Commissioner Mac- Wall Joe Bailey, 450; A. H. Sunderman, 232; Horace Walker," 666. In the city of Tendleton Ellis won over Geer by a vote of 4 to 1, while in the county at large he received more than a 3 to 1 vote, doer failed to carry a single one of the precincts thus far heard from and In four of those now reported upon he failed to receive a single vote. In view of the neck and neck race eeing run in this county between Ful ton and Cake It will take the official count to tell definitely how the coun ty has gone upon the senatorship. L. j. Minn and C. A. Rarrett are both assured of being nominated for representatives though the returns from some of tho north end precincts ft -e not yet in and they may lessen tl.e tip between those two men and S ecu. However. It Is Improbable thai Steon can pass Barrett. F. W. Hendley has easily won from his opponent for recorder.' while Ralph Folsom has -apparently a safe lead over Wall for coroner. However. Wall's race was a strong one and he carried the city of Pendleton by a majority of six votes. For commissioner Horace Walker Is safely nominated with Joe Bailey as bis closest competitor.

Raker City, April 18. H. M. Cake is leading C. W. Fulton for the sen ate by 162 this afternoon In Baker county with but a few outlying pre cincts to hear from. Geer Is ahead 60 votes at 2 o'clock with a few pre cincts to' hear from. Cake and Ellis Carry Union. La Grande, April 18. Cake and Ellis carried Union county In yester day's primaries by strong pluralities. The vote on senator and congressman In this county was as follows: Cake 833; Fulton, 505; Ellis, 807; Geer. 442; Shepherd, 129. Many Complimentary Votes. Upon both tickets yesterday many (names were written ln by voters and several democrats were given gratui tous nominations. Whether or not they will accept the Invitations to run remains to be seen. C. H. CaFter received quite a num ber of votes for district attorney Homer Watts, a' sufficient number to nominate him for school superintend ent, while T. C. Frazier of Milton wa also given the democratic nomina tion for county clerk. At Echo, Col. H. G. Newport re ceived 65 votes for sheriff and he al so received a few votes for that of fice In at least one Pendleton pre cinct. However, Sheriff Taylor also received many votes for the repub lican nomination for sheriff. In North Pendleton he was given 15 complimentary votes; while a goodly number were cast for him in the other local precincts. In Pendle ton precincts he was given In the vi cinity of 50 votes, but the Judges re fused to count them, through a mis apprehension regarding the law. In several precincts Assessor Strain also received votes on the republican ticket, while on the other hand many complimentary democratic votes were cast for republican officials having no opposition. In eases where a man Is voted for by members of the opposite party the votes should be counted for him, ac cording to District Attorney Phelps, and if he receives a greater number of votes than any other man he is en titled to the nomination, even though he be of a different political faith. There is little doubt but that Sheriff Taylor was given the republican nom ination also, in which case he will be (Continued on Page Nine.)

SAYS THAT MARRIAGE WITH OSBORNE IS LEGAL. Tlie Poe Could Not Even Brine About Further Ceremony Which Church Would Sanction Mias Mo loney a Striking Beauty Would Prefer Samuel Clarkston to Whom She Was Married in Montreal Maloney Family Will Not Sanction Latter Marriage. Philadelphia, April 18. Pretty Helen Maloney has lost her efforts to get the Catholic church to sanction her marriage with Samuel Clarkson, a young Englishman-. Today Arch bishop Ryan has announced this fact. Bishop Ryan stated that what the millions and the power of Henry VIII. could not do 600 years ago, tho millions of Martin Maloney could not do today. The archbishop declared that if a legal wedding was performed when she eloped with Herbert Osborne, the stock broker, no power on earth, not even the pope, could bring about any ceremony which the church would sanction. Miss Maloney is 22 years old and strikingly beautiful. In 1905 she eloped with Herbert Osborne, then a Princeton student and was married under an assumed name. They de clare the marriage was never con summated and was always consider ed a joke. Last October Miss Maloney eloped with Samuel Clarkson and was mar ried at Montreal. Now the Catholic church, of which the Maloneys are very devout members, refuse to sanc tion the latter marriage. AXXTAL PARISH MEETING.
