Special to The News : At 11 o'clock this morning the majority of Judge Barnes In Doug las county is placed at from a few to 1,000. Ho will not run higher than 1,000 but he has a major ity hero without a doubt , according to figures received at this hour by the Bee. The World-Herald - now con cedes Barnes' election by possibly 8- 000. There is no question as to his election and the only uncertainty Is as to the majority which will bo rolled up. Lincoln , Nov. 4. Special to The News : At 12 o'clock , noon , today , the majority for Barnes Is estimated at 10,000. Douglas county breaks even as nearly as can bo learned. 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 outcome. The weather conditions throughout the state tfero bad , BO that the vote is euro to bo light.

MASSACHUSETTS. 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 legislature. 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. New Jersey. Trenton , N. J. , Nov 4. The Repub licans In New Jersey elected four of the six state senators and enough of the assembly to claim both houses. The entire Democratic assembly tick et was elected In Union county , which is a defeat for United States Senator 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 tive contests were the mayoralty fights In Jersey City and Trenton. Mayor Fagan ( Rep. ) was re-elected In Jersey City by 1,000 majority. In Trenton Mayor Katzonbacs ( Dem. ) was ro-electod by 475 majority. Revised returns from Monmouth county show the election of three Democratic mcmbors of the assembly there The new house of assembly will consist of thirty-eight Republicans and twenty-four Democrat ! .

Judge J. 1 \ Hoyd Is reelected for the bench In the Ninth Judicial dis trict by u majority of about 1700. He- tuniH show that his majority In Ante lope county IH SOD ; Madison county , fiJi > ; Wuyno county , 100 ; Ktiox county 100. Cones gets u majority In bin own county , Pierce , of about 125 , ( him giving Judge Hoyd about 1700 lead. The returns are practically complete - ploto on this ticket. Judge Hoyd car ried the live counties Htrongor. as a whole , than any olh'U1. Judge Barnes IIIIH u slight lead In NVayno , but the majority for Hoyd IH better.Vuyne county Itself on the county ticket went democratic by about 100. The vote on district Judge In Kuox county was stronger than on ( behead of the ticket. There were 1,1182 voton east for Hoytl. 991 ! for COIIOH. There were 1,227 for Barnes and 911 for Sul livan. The county ticket hero also IH republican. Handsome Majority in Antelope. Antelope county , the home of .ludgo Hoyd , gives him n handsome majority of 800. The normal republican ma jority la 50. Judge Barnes carries this ) county by about 300. The republican ticket was elected with the exception of the clerk of the district court. Rice , and the surveyor. Madison county did well by Judge Hoyd. IIln majority runs pretty well with the head of the ticket which Is iiulto a remarkable record when It Is considered that Judge Barnes IH from Norfolk. Madison county gives Hoyd about 300 majority. Pierce county Is the only one In which , regardless of oilier candidates , Judge Hoyd docs not receive a major ity. This is the home of Judge Doug las Cones and to him his neighbors gave a complimentary majority of about 125. Three more precincts are to bo heard from at this hour. Late Election Returns.

Nov 4 With the close of an election characterized by an unusually heavy vote , numerous disorders and evidences of many gross irregularities , the re-election of Governor Beckham ( Dem ) over Colonel Morris B. Belknap ( Rep. ) by a majority of fully 15,000 seems as sured The Repifnlicans concede the election of Governor Borkham 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 - gor , a Republican officer. The men used pistols and Klley was seriously wounded At Danville , Ky. , Fountain Ilaeby's skull was crushed during an election row. At Troy , Philip Rcllly was shot by a deputy sheriff for venturing too near the polls At Lawronceburg Con stable James Edwards was fatally cut by Oliver Carey during a fight In an election booth. Rhode Island Is Close. Providence , 11. I. , Nov. 4. The re turns indicate the ro-eleellon of Gov ernor Garvln ( Dem. ) by a greatly re duced plurality. The vote Is very close , however , and the result prob ably will be In doubt until the last dis trict Is heard from. The Republican state central committee claimed that later returns would o\ercome Garvln's lead over Colonel Colt ( Rep. ) . In Providence , Mayor Miller ( Dem ) was re-elected. Owing to the Isolated sit uation of many towns complete re turns have not been received. Democrats Sweep Virginia.
