Boston, Nov. 8. After a canvass
without state issues and confined ai
most, entirely to four congressional
districts, and the republicans hare
again carried Massachusetts and elec
ted Roger Wolcott governor for the
fourth time, as well as the entire state
ticket by a safe majority.
Governor Wolcott's plurality over
Bruce, bis democratic opponent, will
be about 70,000. or 15.000 less than his
lead Uat year. The vote this year was
heavier than in 1897, and Bruce made
substantial gains over Williams, the
democratic candidate last year.
Boston, Nov. 8. Returns received
at midnight from the three doubtful
congressional districts, the fifth, ninth
and tenth, indicate that the republi
cans have won in thefifthand the dem
ocrats in tbe ninth and tenth. This
is a loss to the republicans of tbe
tenth district. In which NappeB.dem.,
has defeated Barrows, rep., by about
2.000 plurality. Fitzgerald, dem., in
the ninth, returns with 2,500 plurality,
while Knox, rep., in the fifth, goes
back with about 1,100 plurality.
la Old Kentucky.
Louisville, Ky.. Nov.8. The dem
ocrats of Kentucky today carried nine
and possibly ten out of tbe eleven con
gressional districts in tbe state, a gain
of two or perhaps three over their last
delegation. The republicans carried
only one district.tbe Eleventh.solldly,
but this was always conceded by their
opponents, as it has been a republican
stronghold for years. In the Ninth
district the race between Pugh.repub
lican, and Williams, democrat, is very
close, both sides claiming it. Tbe re
publicans in the Fifth (Louisville) dis
trict talk of contesting tbe election of
Turner, democrat. Tbe vote through
out the state was the lightest known
ia years, and tbe election was entirely
devoid of exciting iacidents.
Both Claim Indlaaa.
Indianapolis, Ind., Ncv. 8. At
midnight only about 220 precincts, out
of 3,229 have been beard from, no one
county having reported in full. Re
turns .come in slowly owing to the
great number of candidates running
on the various tickets, and both par
ties claim tbe state. Chairman Martin
of the democratic committee expresses
himself as confident that the demo
cratic state ticket is elected by about
15,000 majority, together with a ma
jority of tbe legislature. The repub
lican chairman makes the same claim
for his party.
Jacksonville, Fla., Nov.8. The
vote today, judging from returns now
in, is from 10 tc 20 per cent lighter for
both parties than in 1896. The whole
democratic ticket is elected. The
light vote Is due to tbe feeble resist
ance offered. Tbe constitutional
amendment requiring that bonds of
state officers be In sound security and
guarantee campanies was overwhelm'
ingly carried. Tbe republicans and
populists will not altogether elect over
five members of the legislature, if that
many. The legislature elected today
will choose a successor to Senator
San Francisco, Cel., Nov. 8. In
complete returns in tbe Eight legis
lative district give Gage, rep., for gov
ernor, 185, Maguire, dem., 194. Re
turns from precincts in Fresno and
Sn Diego counties indicate that
Maguire's vote is less than that cast
St. Paul, Minn.. Nov. 8. At 10
o'clock tonight both parties were claim
ing the result on the state ticket. On
the legislature the republicans have all
along claimed a victory. Returns on
congressmen are insufficient to decide
auythirts'Vliough it is probable the
r e pub have at least four of the
delegattlrobably more. Apparently,
tbe result will be decided by the coun
try, jfr the two cities are about

B. Cook of the democratic state com
mittee, is confident of the election of
the state ticket by about the same ma
jority ai ia 1896, the party will hold
all tbe congressional districts carried
two years ago, and possibly carry one
of tbe three St. Ltuis districts with
several republican congressmen.
While there are no returns at repub

Richard Kerens is very confident that
the republicans will carry or come
nearer carrying Missouri than ever be

lican state committee than in any
previous campaign, and he expects to
see surprising results.
Tata Koaga. SUder Win..
Nw York, Nov. 9. The latest re
turns available show that Roosevelt's
plurality In tbe state is not far from
20,000. Only ten counties in the state
gave Van Wyck pluralities, and they
were all In counties swaed by cities.
The small pluralities for Roosevelt,
as compared with Black two years ago,
is due to a decrease in the republican
vote up tbe state of 61,000 and In
Greater New York, cf 62,000. Against
this Van Wyck gained 20,000 above
the Harlem and 63,000 below it, as
compared with Porter in 2896.
The result on congressmen in this
state seems to have surprised even
the democrats themselves. Nineteen
ot tbeir candidates were elected, the
republicans getting but fifteen. In the
present bouse the New York delega
tion stands twenty-seven republicans
to six democrats. In the Greater New
York all tbe democratic candidates
After tbe gubernatorial contest as
much interest was taken in the state
egislature as in anything else. The
state senate will be republican by four
and tbe assembly by twenty.
Baltimore, Nov. 8. Full and semi
official returns from tbe city of Balti
more and partial returns from tbe bal
ance of the state make it reasonably
certain that Maryland has returned
four republicans and two democratic
congressmen! after an unusually close ,
but entirely listless, election. This Is
a democratic gain of two. The suc
cessful candidates are John W. Sml th

The democrats succeeded in obtain
ing a majority of tbe popular vote in
Baltimore city for the first time In six
years, ana mere is but little aouot
tbey would have sent five congressmen
to tbe next national legislature if an
active and aggressive campaign had
been made. Tbe entire delegation.
with the exception of Messrs. Mudd
and Baker are new timber and are
looked upon as favoring a gold stand
ard of currency.
Utah U Democrat!.
Salt Lake, Nov. 9. Enough re
turns are at hand to indicate beyond
a doubt that Baskin.dem., for supreme
court judge, has been elected over
Zane, rep. From the best estim ate on
latest returns, the legislature will
stand forty-three democrats, eighteen
republicsns and four fusion.
Tenneeaee la Democratic.
Nashville, Nov. 9. Comp lete and
partial returns from eighty -four out
of ninety-six counties received tonight
give McMillan, dem., an estimated
majority of 38,000 for governor. These
figures will, however, be .reduced by
full returns and It seems tonight that
bis majority will be between 25,000
and 30,000. Tbe decrease in tbe re
publican vote is so phenomenal that
an accurate estimate of tbe total vote
in the state is impossible.
Sweep North CaroUaa.
Raleigh, N. C, Nov. 9. It looked
today like tbe democrats had made a
clean sweep of congressmen. Tbey
have certainly carried the First.Third,
Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Seventh and
Ninth. Fountain, populist, indorsed
by tbe democrats, has 1,300 majority in
tbe Second, with two counties to hear
from. His election is conceded by
some republicans. In tbe Eighth dis
trict, Lin ney, republican, is probably
elected by a small majority.

Boise, Nov. 9. -Only forty -seven
precincts In tbe state, embracing one-
eighth of tbe vote, have reported.
Theygiye Moses, rep., 2,012; Stuen

Forty-six precincts give Heyburn,rep.,
for congress, 1,926; Wilson, fusion, 2,
632; Gunn, pop., 839. The fusion tick
et is all elected by pluralities ranging
from 5,000 to 8,000. The legislature
will be controlled by tbe f usionists.

the large ticket and extensive cu tting
by independent voters the returns are
slower than usual. Enough is kno wn.
however, to indicate that William A.
Stone, rep., is elected governor by a
large plurality. Tbe vote of Swallow
in tbe state will probably be under that
of last year, when be received 118,969
for state treasurer. This city Is the
Swallow stronghold, however, and a
large vote here may increase his total
beyond last year's figures. The vote
on the legislative ticket in counties
where the republican opponents of
Senator Quay have fused with tbe
democrats is very close.

Detroit, Mich., Nov. 8. The re

gree's election by from fcO.OOO to 60,000
majority. The democratic state com
mittee does not yet concede defeat.
The balance of tbe republican state
ticket is elected. The upper peninsula
gave its usual republican majority,
but there was a great amount of split
ting on governor in tbe lower pen
insula. The vote on congressmen is
close in half of the twelve districts.

republican majority, but whether Pin-

Tae mooilizatioa of tua western

Ano:Ler striking index to the situa

Dover announcing that the French
northern squadron is about to sail
from Brest for a cruise. It is not

1,500,000 pounds of biscuit and 160,000
gallons of rum.
