TEN SLAIN AT THE POLLS.
Election Riot at Phoenix , S. C. , Leads
to "Wholesale Murder.
Ten negroes are dead as a result of the
election riots at Phoenix , S. O. The ne
groes threaten to make a desperate fight
to avenge the death of their fellows.
The- trouble at Phoenix began -with an
effort to prevent several negroes from vet
ing. J. R. Tolbert , Federal collector at
Charleston , whose home is at Phoenix ,
entered into the discussion and declared
the men must not be disfranchised. He
directed the negroes to deposit their bal
lots in a separate box. This action anger
ed Bose Bthridge , an authorized poll man
ager , and he vigorously objected. Blows
were struck and then some one in a group
of negroes shot and killed Ethridge.
The shooting \vas returned and five ne
groes were wounded , among them Thomas
Tolbert , son of the collector. The negroes
took to their heels , but eleven of the crowd
were captured. The prisoners were taken
to Rehoboth , where a crowd of angry

Ballot Machines Again Used.
For the second time in the history o ;
Rochester , N. Y. , ballot machines wer <
used. On the previous occasion mucl
trouble was experienced in operating th <
machines , but this time there was n <
trouble whatever. It required just hal :
a minute to vote a split ticket on the ma
chines and but a couple of seconds t <
vote a straight ticket. The polls wer <
closed at 5 o'cli-ck , and a half hour late ;
the result of the vote in the entire cit ]
was known in the newspaper offices' .

The former President was in the bootl
only a few moments.
John Anderson , colored , was lynche <
by a mob at Lafayette , Ala. , for the mur
der of Charles Holmes. It has since beei
learned that Anderson was innocent.
Col. Roosevelt , Republican , is elect
Governor of New York by about 20,0
plurality. The Democrats carried elevi
counties as against only one two yea
ago , and Greater New York gave V :
Wyck 85,000 majority. As compan
with the election of 1896 , when Black d
featcd Porter , this shows a Republic :
loss of from 190,000 to I9o,000. Rees
velt cam to the Harlem river with lOi
000 plurality , and Van Wyck had but Si
000 in Greater New York with which
meet it. The vote outside the city sho\
that Roosevelt lost 61,000 as compan
with Black. In the city his vote was 6 ]
000 smaller than Black's. In the count !
districts Van Wyck ran about 20,000 ai
in the city about 51,000 ahead of Porter.
The next congressional delegation fro
Michigan will be Republican , Congres
men Todd and Brucker , Democrats , b
ing succeeded by Washington Gardn
and J. W. Fordney. Gov. Pingree hi
been re-elected by a plurality of 70,00
The vote throughout the State was ligh
and , although the Governor was badly ci
at many points , his Democratic frieni
rallied to his support with more thr
enough votes to offset the Republican d
fection. Of the thirty-two State Senate :
the Democrats elected five and possib
six. In the House they will have fii
votes , while eight others are in doubt. Tl
Republicans will have a majority <
eighty-seven and a majority on joint ba
lot of 104.

iidates in the eleven congressional di
tricts of the State , the safe ones by swee ]
ing and almost unlooked-for majoritie

jer of Congress , defeated Gen. James I
iVeaver by a plurality of 1,234 , a gain c
53 over his plurality in 1896. The Sixt
listrict was the central battle ground du :
ng the campaign. The Republican Stal

Che falling off in the vote is about 15 1

Estimating from incomplete returns ,
Illinois Democrats have probably elected
seventy-three members and Republicans
eighty , leaving a Republican House ma
jority of seven. For the Senate the Dem
ocrats have elected sixteen members , the
Republicans thirty-four and the Potmlists
one , giving a Republican majority of sev
enteen. The Republicans will probably
have a majority of twenty-three or twen
ty-four on joint ballot. The average plu
rality for the Republican State ticket is
about 30,000. The Democrats elect eight
Congressmen out of a delegation of twen

four counties missing , gives Stone , Rep. ,
455,782 ; Jenks ; Dem. , 337,783 ; Swallow ,
Pro. and honest government , 124,437 , a
plurality for Stone of 122,089 , which will
be increased to about 125,000 by the com
plete returns. The total vote in the State
will approximate 950,000.
Returns by counties Wednesday night
indicated a scaling off of Republican
gains , making the State ticket in doubt
and so close that the official count may
be required. The Legislature is probably
Republican on joint ballot.
Wisconsin elects a Republican Governor
by 30,000 plurality , the remainder of the
State ticket by about 10,000 more , ten
Republican Congressmen , thirty-one out
of thirty-three Senators and eighty-one

RETURNS AT "WASHINGTON.
Chief Interest Centered in Congres
In Washington intense interest wa
manifested in the election returns. Th
results of the various State and Congres
sional district campaigns , to which s <
much attaches in Washington , attractei
thousands to the bulletin boards in fron
of the newspaper offices. The theater
and clubs received bulletins. The tw <
Congressional headquarters had specia
wires and long distance telephone se'-vici
for those who were figuring up the re
suit of the battle for the control of thi
next House of Representatives.
Many of the cabinet officers and highe
officials of the government had gone hem <
to vote , and owing to the absence of thi
President , who traveled to Ohio to deposl
his ballot , there was not the brilliant gath
ering of political notables at the Whit <
House which has assembled there fre
quently upon similar occasions in the past
But the returns were received at thi
White House and closely tabulated. Th <
chief interest , of course , centered in thi
complexion of the next House. Legisla
tion during the coming two years , sup
port of the administration , and man :
hundreds of offices were involved in thi
result , and the returns from the close dis
tricts were eagerly scrutinized by thi
