A dispatch from New York at mid
It became evident at a very early
hour that the election of McKiuley
and Itoosuvclt was an assured fact.
The pivotal state of New York lias
gone on unmistakable terms, although
by a reduced majority, for the republi
can candidate. As the count progressed
it only served to confirm this judgment.
The returns from Illinois betrayed a
like condition. Tlio republican plur
ality of 1890 was greatly reduced, but
it was still far too large to be over
come. The count in several of the far west
ern states is usually so deluyed as to
give no indication of the outcome, but
they had ceased to have a determining
effect, and before 10 o'clock the demo
crats had given up the contest and It
was announced Mr. Uryun had gone to
bed and was sound asleep. The whole
story was easily und brieliy toid. The
republican ticket would have a larger
electorlal vote than four years ago, but
in the larger states of the east and
middle west the pluralities had been
l'alutlnj l'ortralt of Shalt.
