Early Returns. -
Lincoln , Nob. , Nov. 4. Based on
returns from 115 voting precincts out-
tide of Lancaster county ( Lincoln )
and Douglas county ( Omaha ) the Re
publican state central committee made
the claim of the election ot the entire
Republican state ticket by not less
than 10,000 plurality. This claim Is
considered conservative and newspa
per returns tend to confirm it. The
Tote for the 115 precincts gave
Barnes ( Rep. ) 9.G42 , Sullivan ( fus. )
8,192 The same precincts two years
ago gave the Republican candidate
9.615. with the fusion 8,107 , a change
BO slight that it will require a fusion
landslide from an unexpected quarter
to overcome the Republican plurality
of 12,000 of two years ago. First re
ports were all favorable to the fu-
eionists , but the fatcr returns have al
most wiped out the early gains Lan
caster county will give Barnes 2,000
plurality , and this Is expected to off
set Sullivan's expected plurality In
Douglas Returns from Itifi precincts
Including part of Lancaster countv.
give Hnrnes 14,513 Sullivan 10,7b3 a
not Republican loss of 142. or less ,
than one to n precinct. It will re
quire eight to a precinct to overcome
the Republican plurality of two years
ago on the same relative vote which
eeenis to be maintained The Repub
llcan candidates for university regents
are running'ahead of Raines
Returns are coming In slowly , 304
precincts outside of Douglas having
been heard from , casting h.oro than
45.000 votes Out of this number
Barnes had 23,934 and Sullivan , 20 ,
141 The same precincts two years
* o gave Sedgwlck a majority of 521
more than they give Barnes this year.
The count In Omaha and South
Omaha Is proceeding slowly A tabu
lation o' fifty-eight out of the 102 voting
ing districts in Douglas county gives
Barnes 4.C78 and Sullivan 4.GG1. Last
year these same precincts gave
Mickey ( Rep. ) for governor 5,135 and
Thompson ( fus. ) 0,105.
It looks as If the entire Republican
county and Judicial tickets In Doug
las county were elected , with the pos-
elblo exception of Unttt for county
cleric , although complete returns will
be necessary to make sure of this

Republicans Elect Entire State Ticket
Large Vote for Off Year.
Boston , Nov. 4 Although some
what pushed by the exertions of their
opponents , the Republicans re-elected
Governor John L. Bates by practically
the same plurality as last year The
rest of the state ticket was also
elected and the party probably will
have the usual proportion of two to
one In the legislature of 1901 The
weather was fine and the vote remark
ably large for an off year.
The early returns showed that Gov
ernor Bates had made slight gains In
some towns and cities , but this was
overcome by the Democrats , who
rolled up a big vote In Boston for
Colonel William A. Gaston , the Dem
ocratic candidate for governor The
hard work of the managers In this
city resulted in Colonel Ouston's plu
rality of 13.000 last year being In
creased to nearly 20OnO this year In
addition to electing their state ticket
and holding the legislature , the He-
publicans wore also successful in re
taining control of the governor's coun
cil , which will be composed of five Republicans -
publicans and one Democrat
The Socialist vote , from early re
turns , showed a falling off .from last
year and that party also lost a repre
sentative from one of the Plymouth
county districts , so that the party will
have but two members In the coming
The Prohibition and the Socialist-
Labor vote averaged about the same
as In previous years.
With returns complete from every
town and city In the state , the total
vote for governor was : Bates ( Rep )
199,393 , Gauton ( Dem. ) 163,544.

licans In New Jersey elected four of
the six state senators and enough of

et was elected In Union county , which

Kean. The Republican nominees who
were favorable to his return to the
senate were openly opposed at the
polls by the antl-Kcan faction In that
county. The next senate will stand
fourteen Republicans and seven Dem
ocrats. In the house at least thirty-
three of the sixty members will bo
Republicans The Important elections
In the state outside of the legisla

The day in Louisville was an excit
ing one and the election was bitterly
fought. The Republican managers
claim they have proofs that in thirty-
two precincts In this city the polling
places In Republican precincts were
cither kept closed all or a part of the ,
time or removed to obscure places * "
They also charge ballot box stuffing ,
the forcible ejection of Republican
officials and the Intimidation of negro
voters. Thcso conditions led to many
fights , the most serious of which oc
curred between Tom Klley , a Demo
cratic election officer , and Jacob Krieger -
