What Is Shown by Figures from New
York, Massachusetts, Illinois, Iowa,
Colorado and Other States East and
has been won by Eugene E. Schmltz
(onion labor) the present incumbent,
.whose plurality on the partial count
is now 3.434 over Henry J. Cracker,
republican candidate. The. onion
labor and democratic parties hare
captured nearly every office so fir
as the returns show.
OMAHA Complete returns hare
been received from forty-nine of the
ninety counties in the state and par
tial ones from practically all of the re
mainder. The forty-nine counties
complete, including Douglas and Gage.
represent considerably over half the
total vote of the state. In these coun
ties Barnes, rep., for supreme judge,
has a plurality of 5.107. In the same
counties two years ago Sedgwick had
a plurality of 9,166. These figures,
taken in connection with the partial
returns from the remaining counties.
Indicate that the plurality of Barnes
In the state will be 10,000. The heav
iest loss for Barnes, as compared with
the Sedgwick vote, was in Douglas
county, where it averaged almost
twenty to the precinct. Out in the
state, particularly in the counties hav
ing no large towns, he has not lost
greatly. There Is nothing at hand on
which to base an accurate estimate
of the vote for regents, but the mea
ger returns would indicate that they '
will have a larger plurality than the
head of the ticket
TRENTON. The republicans In
New Jersey elected four of the six
state senators and enough of the as
sembly to claim both houses.
DENVER The latest returns from
the election in Colorado show that the
plurality for Campbell, rep., over Wil
son, dem., for Justice of the supreme
court will not be far from 7,000. Wil
son carried but eleven 'of the fifty-nine
counties in the state.
Chinese Greatly Enraged at Russian
Proceedings. Demand Repeated far

BALTIMORE The returns this
morning from 254 precincts of the 30S
in Baltimore city have been counted
and these show a majority of 4,842 for
Edwin Warfield, democratic candidate
tor governor. It is quite certain that
the returns from the remaining fifty
four precincts will increase this lead.
NEW YORK After a remarkable
campaign, in which there was united
against him nearly all the newspa
pers and practically every minister of
religion in this city, George B. McClel
lan, son of the civil war general, was
Tuesday elected third mayor of the
greater New York over Seth Low. fu
slonist, the present mayor, by a plu
rality of about 70,000. Edward M.
Grout was elected comptroller and
Charles V. Fornes president of the
board of aldermen. These two men
were originally on the fusion ticket
and were indorsed by Tammany.
George B. McCIellan's plurality is
63,01 . complete unofficial returns
having been received from every elec
tion district in the city. By the same
returns, Comptroller Edward M.
Grout and Charles V. Fornes, presi
dent of the board of aldermen, run
ning for re-election on the democratic
ticket, though elected two years ago
as fusionlsts, defeated their fusion op
ponents by 66.790 and 64.973 plurality
respectively. Comptroller Grout lead
ing the city ticket.
BOSTON With the exception of the
socialist vote, the election in Massa
chusetts very nearly paralleled that of
last year. Governor John L. Bates is
re-elected by the republicans by a plu
rality of 35,849 over Colonel William
A. Gaston in a total vote only slightly
under that of 1902, when Bates won
by 37,120 plurality.
LOUISVILLE With th close of
an election characterized by an un
usually heavy vote numerous disor
ders and evidences of many gross ir
regularities, the re-election of Gov-
; ernor Morris B. Belknap, republican.
by a majority of fully 15,000, seems
assured. The republicans concede
the election of Governor Beckham.
PHILADELPHIAThe polls closed in
Pennsylvania at 7 p. m. Information
received from various parts of the
state indicate that while ideal elec
tion weather prevailed the vote was
unusually light, owing to the lack of
Inte-est in the contest. The repub
lican state ticket was elected by a
majority exceeding 150,000. Reuben
Moon. rep was elected to congress
from the Fourth district, to fill the
vacancy caused by the death of Rob
ert H. Foerderer, rep. Mr. Moon's op
ponent was Raff. ind. dem.
PHILADELPHIA Latest estimates
from the country districts indicate
that the republican state ticket will
have majorities ranging from 225,000 (
to 230.000.
In the counties where judges of
common pleas court were chosen, the
republican percentage of victories was
far greater than that of the democrats.

PEKING Yuen Shi Kay. viceroy
of Chi Li province, who, as cabled to
the Associated Press, was dispatched
to Mukden by the dowager empress
with instructions to investigate affairs
there and if possible to arrange a set
tlement with the Russians, did not
go any further than Tien Tsin. which
he reached Thursday evening. It is
now considered doubtful whether he
will go to Mukden at alL
The Chinese are more enraged at
the Russian proceedings at Mukden
than they have been by any events
since the capture of Peking. Some of
the hot-headed members of the coun
cil have advised the dowager em
press to declare war on Russia and
send troops to release the tartar gen
eral, whose detention at Mukden,
growing out of the decapitation of a
Chinese bandit who had enlisted in
the Russian service.but who fell into
the hands of the Chinese after the
Russians had evacuated Mukden,
wounds Chinese susceptibilities since
it is considered to be not only an in
sult to a high official but an insult to
the Chinese government itself.
Better informed officials, however,
realize the helplessness of China and
the madness of attempting to go to
war with Russia. Their counsels
have hitherto prevailed, though there
is much baseless war talk in the na
tive press and among the younger
Chinese officials.
Paul Lessar, the Russian minister
to China has repeated the demands
1 of Russia for the execution of Major
Wong, who recently decapitated a
noted brigand in Russian employ and
the dismissal of Yuen, the taotai of
Mukden, who is Wong's superior officer.
Ha Outlines FwjKJan ef United States
in Panama Affaire.
WASHINGTON The United Slates
eat has recognised taw de

announced at the state deceit sisal af
ter the return of Secretary Hay frost
the cabinet meeting that iastnsetkms
have been sent to United States Mia
ister Beaupre at Bogota (assuming
that he has not left the capital yet)
and to Mr. Ehrman, the United States
vice consul at Panama and now act
ing consul there, to inform the govera
ments of Colombia and Panama re
spectively that the de facto govern
ment is recognized.
The decision to recognize the de
facto government of Panama was ar
rived at after a protracted session, of
the cabinet Friday, at which every
member was present except Secre,
taries Root and Wilson. The presi
dent emphasized the importance of
the recognition of the de facto gov
ernment. With the withdrawal ef
the Colombian officials the isthmus
was left entirely without a govern
ment, unless that established by the f
secessionists should be recognized.
and this step seemed necessary for
the transaction of the routine busi
ness of the United States on the isthmus.

in a democratic sweep of the state.
There were few contests, the fields as

cided. Surprises, however, appear in
the defeat of the democratic nominees

Powell Cables for Warship.
WASHINGTON A cablegram has
been received at the state department
from United States Minister Powell,
dated at Domingo City, stating that
the insurgents are marching on that
city and asking that a warship be at

more, which sailed from Hampton
Roads several days ago, is now due
at San Domingo and the state depart
ment believes that her presence there
will be sufficient.
How News la to Be Broken to the Gov
ernments Concerned.
WASHINGTON The following tel
egram was sent to the state depart
ment to Mr. Ehrman, the acting con
sul general at Panama:
"The people of Panama have by
an apparently unanimous movement
dissolved their political relations with
the republic of Colombia and assumed
their independence. When you are
satisfied that a de facto government,
republican in form, and without sub
stantial opposition from its own peo
ple, has been established in the state
of Panama, you will enter into rela
tions with it as the responsible gov
ernment of the territory and look to
it for all due action to protect the
persons and property of citizens of the
United States, end to keep open thD
isthmian transit, in accordance with
the obligations of existing treaties
governing the relations of the United
States to that territory.'
Immediately after an instruction
was sent by telegraph, to Mr. Beaupre,
the United States Minister at Bogota,
in about the same terms.

HAVANA. The regular session of
congress opeaed Monday afternoon.
The recomssendatioas in the message
of .President Palma were chiefly of a
general character. The much dis
cussed loaa taxes are not gone into at
: length, aad no amendment to the loan
law is suggested. The president
promises a special message with ref
erence to the negotiations of the loan
commissioners who went to New
York, who, the message says, are cer
tain that the loan can be obtained
in the United States
. Continuing, the message assures
congress of the president's zeal in
carrying out the payment of the revo
lutionary army and Senor Palma de
fies all assertions to the contrary
made by persons whom he terms "cer
tain turbulent spirits."
Referring to the relations between
Cuba and the United States, the mess
age says:
Our political relations with the
United-States have been definitely set
tled by treaties founded on terms of
the constitutional appendix and the
latter could not be eliminated from
the constitution by the mere reading
of these treaties.
Congress can appreciate that with
in the precise terms of the Piatt
amendment Cuba has obtained no few
advantages. Of the two forms of ces
sion of naval coaling stations by sale
or by lease the one least harmful to
Cuban sentiment was adopted and the
smallest limit as to the number of
stations granted was made, the regula
tions in the cases contain other limi
tations favorable to Cuba. The gov
ernment is acquiring territory within
the stations and will soon formally de

sion for the purpose of taking action
on the pending reciprocity treaty,
from which we hope to receive such
great benefits.
Trustworthy information has been
received by the executive which war
rants the belief that this treaty will
be ratified.
The president congratulates the
Cuban people on their love of order,
evidenced by the cry of "indignation
which resounded from one end of the
island to the other when a few men
sought to create disturbances." He
says instances such as these have
shown the capacity of the Cuban peo
ple for self-government President
Palma condemned the leaders of this
movement, whom he said were too
cowardly to make themselves knewn.
