load the deep sea vessels here Instead
of at other points on the river.

McKINLEY'S ELECTION ASSURED.

Doubt of Bryan's Defeat
Portland, October 21. Samuel El
more, of Astoria, a well known Colum
bia river canneryman, arrived In Fort-
land today on his return from an ex
tended Eastern trip. Mr. Elmore ex
pressed great confidence In the election
of McKlnley at the coming election.
"Of course, there Is not a shadow of
doubt that McKlnley will carry all the
Eastern states by heavy votes," said
Mr. Elmore tonight. "That Is conced
ed. Why, in New York, the streets
and buildings are plastered with Mc
Klnley flags, banners and streamers
and Republican sentiment pervades all
things. I was th New England and
found the same thing there. I made

told me that the Republicans had a
very excellent chance of carrying Mis
souri. "Illinois Is absolutely safe for Mc
Klnley by a big majority. Indiana can
be counted on with absolute certainty.
"The vote of Minnesota Is assured
for McKlnley. It was by no means
certain eight weeks since, but It Is not
on the doubtful list now. Iowa la all
right. I heard more Populist talk In
Nebraska than anywhere In the Middle
West Bryan may carry his own state."

that the gold was for the account of a
