as the oUlcors to DO elected are all county
otllcials. The polls closed at 4 o'clock and
at tills hour , G p.i m. , ; the Journal ( rep )
takes a dismal view of the situation and
practically concedes. a democratic victory.
The hottest light is between Stephens ( rep )
nnd Crawford ( dem ) tor the recordorshlp.
Upon this point the Journal says :
"Mr. Stephens has driven all over the city
to-duy and told a gentleman that though ho
had fought a hard light ho did not feel alto
gether conlldent of victory. It is conceded
at headquarters that Crawford has made
big Inroads In the ranks of organized labor
and that In consequence ho has run away
from his ticket.1

This would Icavo a Httlo over 12,000 In

The loss by Foraker of Hamilton county ,
which gave him u plurality of nearly 7,000
two years ago , has boon largely effected by
defection iu tlio German republican wutus ,
The loss In ainirlo-precincU in notr.o of these

The democrats full conlldent that Camp
bell would suffer attho hands of those mom-
berg of his party who swear by ox-Prosldor.t
Cleveland and ti'rlflt reform. All this com
plicated the situation and the republicans
wcro prepared for Fornker's election by a
plurality of 10.000 or his defeat by a plural
ity not qulto so large , pcriiaps.
The whisky question cut no small flgure
tn the content. The impression prevailed
that the brewers , distillers and dealers gen
erally were democrats this autumn nnd
many members of the democratic party In
favor of restricting the liquor trnfllc were
nulto content to vote the republican ticket
and to thus defeat the supposed pur
poses of those niou who seek to
amend the present liquor laws.
Here asnin was another complication
nud there was indeed "no logic of tlio situa
tion. " It was a plain case of unfathomable
uncertainty.
At 12)0 : ! ) the republicans feel positive of
having the legislature , which if true moans
a republican United States senator Instead of
Henry B. I'a.yno. In the western reserve
the republicans have gained almost in every

Chairman Neal , of the democratic stnto
nxccutlvo committee , claims Campbell's
election by from 6.000 to 10.000 plurality.
As to the legislature ho is in doubt. Ho
thinks , however , it may bo democratic on
joint ballot. The entire legislative ticket in
Hamilton is claimed by the democrats , and
gains elsewhere.
Ex-Chairman Coppeller , 'feels confident
that Forukor is elected. Ho does not con
cede Hamilton to thejdomocrats by more than
4.000 votes , und says the democratic gains
elsewhere in ttio state must average tlvo and
one-half votes to elect Campbell. Ho is sure
the republicans will gain in the country dis
tricts. The republicans claim they bavo the
legislature surely.
liliOu. m. Later returns seem to assure
the republicans u majority of the legislature
on Joint ballot. The republican state central
committee has Issued the following : "Tho
republican state executive committee claims
the election of the legislature- and ctuto
ticket except Governor Foraker , who is in
doubt. If the republican counties in the
Western Reserve nnd other paits of the
state hold up to expectations Forukcr will
pull through by a small majority. "

BOSTON , Nov. G. To-day's oxporlenco

of the Australian system of voting.
In this city the voting places presented a
rcinnrKably quiet appearance. The voting
proceeded with dispatch ana the voters en
joyed u freedom from the Importunities of
the ballot distributors never known before.
There was some slight friction i-aused by
a conflict of opinion regarding the duties of
precinct and other ofllcurs , but it was insig
nificant , and made but little trouble.
With rozard to the ballots themselves ,
thcro was little or no complaint. From all
over the state the reports indicate a very
quiet election and a light voto. The returns
como In slowly. There is probably not the

for governor ia elected by a good majority.

BANK CIRCULATION PROBLEM

National banks having 4j per cent bonda
deposited with the United Suited treasurer ,
to secure circulation xvould do xvcll to wait
at least u few months before changing thoiu ,
to 4 per cents. This is the tulvico of the
treasury olllclals.
The impression obtains in the department
that congress xvill take some notion to re-
Hnvo the stress upon the national banks duo
to thu near approach of maturity of the 4)
per cents. It Is true that they become duo
In twenty months ; that their premium for
that reason is fust diminishing , but there are
reasons for believing that the premium ot
the 4s ivlll depreciate quito ns rapidly , so
thai thcro can bo only the risk In xvnlllnij
that there may bo Hi a "corner" on the 4s
not already In the hands of the banks. It ia
not knoxvn yet what recommendations Secre
tary Windoui xvill malto in his annual report
relative to national bank circulation. It
is not a party , but n business proposi
tion , nnd not a theory but u condition
that confronts him. The bulk of the -IK per
cent bonds are noxv , deposited in thu vaults
of the treasury to sccuro bunk circulation.
They fall duo September , IbOl , uiul unmo-
thing must bo done to glvo the banks niiolhor
b.xsls for circulation , otherxvtso tlio exlstenco
of the circulation of n great many banks xvill
bo wiped out iu loss than txvo years. A
stringency xvill folloxv in the money market
and n < panic ensue xvhich xvill very materially
ufTuct the best Interests ot the country. The
secretary la very anxious not to disturb the
present circulating modlum , but In this re
spect nnd to this extent ho is compelled to
net.
net.It xvill bo recalled that Comptroller Tron-
helm , at the convening of the last congress ,
suggested three or four remedies for the
troubles xvhiuh nro noxv very ncjir the na
tional banks. Ho first recommended the
Issuance of n 2 pur cent bond to run say 100
years , the national hanks to liavo the pre
ference In thu purchase , the Intention of the
Issue being to glvo another and bettor
basis for national bank circulation. If this
should not bo accepted ho thought n reduc
tion of Uio minimum of Uio deposit to secure
circulation , the proper llilnir. At present a
bank must deposit 25 per cent of its capital
stock und Uike out circulation on that basis.
For Instance a bank xvl'.h $100,000 capital
must buy ? - . " > , OUO xvorth of bonds , bonds to
thu par value of . ' 5COO , nud deposit them
with the treasurer to secure circulation.
But the bank docs not get that amount of
circulating notes , although it must pay n pro-
' ' .nlum of about 28 per cent to get Uio bonds.
It gets bank notes aggregating 00 to rep
resent this Investment of $3J,000 Jn bonds ;
n decrease in the deal amounting to nlnfost
$10,000. Comptroller Tronholin thought in ,
the event the loxv priced bond uroposltlon
failed that this minimum of deposit might.
. bo reduced from 25 per cent of the capital
stock of a bank to suy 2 or 5 per cent. Ho
held that since the object In mailing the
deposits and taking out circulation xvns sim
ply to niako a connection botxvceli private- In
terests nnd the federal government , it xvould
do Just as xx'cll to deposit $1,000 as f . ' 5,000.
In any event ho thought a bank , especially la
view of the fact that bonds nro at. a high
premium nnd the covornment never depre
ciates its own obligation * , should bo given
circulating notes to the full par value of the
bonds deposited to secure circulation. The
house committee on banking nnd currency
put a bill of this character on the calender ,
nud it would -have passed both houses or
congress hud u day been given to it. It 1
boliox-cd that Secretary Windoui xvill recom
mend ono or more of these suggestions ana
congress xvill take action. In any event It IS
given us the best advice attainable at the
treasury department that national banks ,
liavinir 4J4 per cent bonds deposited would
do xvell tovait awhile before making any
move.
MAHONK'a MANIEUVIIIS
Virginia's unreconstructed confederates
are drunk on xvhisky and Joy to-night.
They have provenied General Mahono's
election as governor , and in the phraseology
of the rebel yell , the commonwealth is safe.
1 linro is a barn probability , however , that
the republicans have elected a majority of

Ho know tin1 bourbons xvould defeat him for

to-day , but ho thought no might , with Uro

When-tho bourbons xvako up to the situa

niako the legislature democratic , though a
