State Journal says:
Election returns received so far In
dicate that McKinlcy's majority In
Nebraska will reach tho seven thou
sand mark. Returns for seventy-six
counties have been received and tabu
lated, and these tlgiucs bear out this
assertion. Taking tho vote Iu the
missing counties four years ago, with,
tho figures so far received, the majority
for McKlnloy electors is 0,885.
The returns on governor come in
slowly. This voto was much lighter'
than on presidential electors and the
republican candidates on the state,
ticket will not receive nearly so lnrge
a majority ns tho presidential electors.'
Returns from sixty-three counties on
governor show R ( majority for Diet
rich of 3,550. Tak'lng tho voto on Hay
ward aud Poynter iu 1898 for the
twenty-seven missing counties and
subtracting Poynter's majority from
Dietrich's apparent majority, it still
leaves him 609 votes to the good. A re
publican gain will be shown by the
twenty-seven missing counties, and
tills should bring Dietrich's maiorltv
above one thousand.
The vote on state ofllcers has no
been received fully enough to deter
mine the result, but it is believed that
the remainder of tho state ticket wll I
make even n better showing thun that
made by Dietrich.
A difference exists in return received
on the state ticket sufllciont to make
a considerable chuuge. Until all fig
ures are verified and the result is defi
nitely known, interest In tho receipt
of additional returns will be taken.
The voto on congressman seems to
bo very close in tho Third and Sixth
districts, and it would not be surpris
ing If a republican congressman would
be added to republican gams.
The personnel of the legislature has
