Des.Moines , Nov. 7. For the first
time in many years the gubernatorial
result In Iowa is in doubt. Although ,
both Republican and Democratic
state managers claim the election of
their candidates for governor , all the
returns received so far , numbering
about 250 , indicate that only a com
plete count will determine the result.
The 250 precincts already received
show a loss for Cummins of nearly
40 per cent , which , if maintained ,
would mean the election of Porter
( Dem. ) by a small plurality.
Iowa will have ten Republicans in
its next congressional delegation. It

Attorney John B. Moran of Boston ,
the candidate of the Democratic and

larger vote than that given the Dem

two-thirds of the state vote tabulated ,
Mr. Guild's plurality was estimated at

The outcome of the election was a
considerable disappointment to Mr.
Moran and his fellow campaigners , E.
Gerry Brown of Brockton , candidate
for lieutenant governor and George
Fred Williams of Dedham. The Mcran
campaign was handicapped by lack of
organization , a meager campaign fund
and opposition from a large number
ol ! former leaders. The vote came
from the wage * earners principally , as
was shown by the strong indorsement
given the Suffolk county district attor
ney in nearly all the mill cities and
other industrial centers.

New York , Nov. 7. According to
incomplete returns from all over ths
state , Charles E. Hughes , the Repub
lican candidate , has been elected gov
ernor of New York over William Ran
dolph Hearst by approximately a
plurality of 50,000.
Outside of Greateer New York , with
160 election districts missing , Hughes
had a plurality of about 124,000. In
Greater New York , with 69 election
districts missing , Hearst had a plu
rality of 75,036.
No definite figures are yet available
as to the results with regard to the
subordinate state officers and both
Democrats and Republicans are claim
ing victories from lieutenant gov
Neither Mr. Hearst nor his cam
paign managers would concede the
election of Mr. Hughes , maintaining
that when all votes should have been
counted Mr. Hearst will have a safe
As was generally expected , Mr.
Hearst showed his greatest strength
in the cities through the state and
took out of the Republican column a
number of the more important munic
ipalities which heretofore have been
Republican. Among the cities which
gave Hearst a plurality were Buffalo
Rochester , Utica , Troy , Elmira , Rome ,
Little Falls and Janiestown. All oi
these , except Rome and Utica , were
Republican two years ago. Mr.Hughes
did not gain a single city. The Re
publican ticket v/as successful , bul
sustained serious losses In Syracuse
Gloversville , Amsterdam , Ithaca , Sclie-
nectady , Watertown and Plattsburg.
State Senator Thomas F. Grady oi
Tammany Hall has been re-elected
over Thomas Rock , who has been
known in the campaign as "Eight-
Hour" Rock , and who claimed he had
been "tricked" by tie Independence
There were many odd turns to th
balloting. Here in New York , it was
Richmond borough that defeated Mr.
Hearst for mayor a year ago and it
was Brooklyn , with a big plurality ,
which helped him to make the race
so close. Mr. Hearst barely carried
Brooklyn yesterday , but ran ahead in
Richmond. In Schenectady , one of the
best organized labor cities in the Unit
ed States , it was expected Mr. Hearst
would have a substantial plurality.
The Republican ticket was successful
by 374 votes , as against a Higgins
plurality of 1,621 two years ago.
Election Night Crowds.
New York turned out its myriads
of people last night for the usual elec
tion night revel. All the pent-up en
thusiasm of an unprecedented state
campaign was vented in a frenzy ol
noise. Broadway from Forty-second
to Fourteenth street and along Parl ;
Row , from the Brooklyn bridge to the
end of "newspaper row , " was one
mass of shouting , shoving people. Ol
noise , there was every variety it was
possible to create with the use ol"a
good pair of lungs and a tin horn , a
cow bell tir other devices. It was a
boisterous crowd , but good naturecl.
Beginning at Times square , at Forty-
second street , Broadway was impassa
ble to everything except pedestrians
as far down town as Twenty-third
street. The greatest crushes were
around Times square , Herald , Madison
square and Park Row. At these
places , as well as several other points ,
bulletins were flashed upon screens
and everybody cheered impartially.
Around Herald square the jam was
terrific. Street cars could not get
through and only by getting in the
currents that surged up and down
Broadway was it possible for a pedes
trian to make progress.
San Francisco , Nov. 7. General
George Stone , chairman of the Repub
lican state central committee , said to
the Associated Press : "Reports from
the state are coming in very slowly.
There is no doubt as to the result , it
is only a question of plurality. Gillett -
lett has carried San Francisco by a
plurality of from 500 to 1,000 , and the
enure Republican state ticket , includ
ing eight congressmen , has been elect
ed by a plurality exceeding" 25,000. "
Seattle , Nov. 7. Late returns point
to an overwhelming Republican vic
tory in the state of Washington. W.
E. Humphrey , Wesley L. Jones and
Francis W. Cushman , congressmen-at' ,

' 'REDEEMING NEBRASKA- "
There is a certain grim , sardonic
humor in the contention of the re
publican party of Nebraska that
it , and it alone , must be given the
high privilege af redeeming the
state from the shame of years of
There is no freshness in the
joke , however. It is merely an
old , old republican "chestnut , "
reburnished and clad in new words
to fit a new occasion.
The high protectionists , guard
ing the citadel of government fav
or of the "interests , " have insisted
that the tariff structure must be
saved from the profaning touch of
democracy that revision demand

from within the republican party
from the friends of the tariff
idea. And what revision have \ve
The spokesmen of the great in
dustrial trusts entrenched in the
United States senate declare that
the'y , and they alone , must be en
trusted with the task of devising
ways and means for trust regula
tion. They profess a holy horror
at the mere thought of interven
tion by the "demagogues" of
democracy. And what relief has
the senate yet made effective ?
In Nebraska the argument is
even more grotesque. "Reform"
must be left to that party which ,
throughout its years of power :
has fastened the burdensome evils
upon us. The tariff must be re
vised only by the friends of the
tariff ; the trusts must be regulated
only by the friends of the trusts ,
the cure of corruption in Nebraska
must be entrusted to the authors
What honest reform dare the
people hope _ for in such event ?
