iWyck's plurality over Low , SG.CGS.
NEW YOIIK. Nov. 2. Tammany's victory
in the "first , municipal election In Greater
Now York' Is a sweeping ono. The only
question remaining to be settled at 11 o'clock
ia the one of the plurality by which the
cntlro ticket headed by Robert A. Van Wyck
lias carried the gigantic municipality. It
con scarcely be less than GO.OOO and maybe
bo larger than that. Van Wyck has polled
n vote which falls possibly 40,000 under the
combined votes ot General Tracy ( republican )
and Beth Low ( citizens' union ) .
The latter was successful to the extent
of polling an aggregate vote in excess of
the 140,000 pledges Implied by the signa
tures to the petition upn which he became
the candidate of an Independent movement
which at the outset offered to join hands
with the republican party organization in a
concerted vote to exclude Tammany from
power In the greater city to come Into being
on January 1. 1898. The offer was declined
on the ground that In such a movement
the republican organization would participate
only colncldcntly with the other party to
the compact , and the citizen ! : ' union , on
the other iKiid , refused to call off Its nom
ination of Mr. Low In order that the form
of - -selecting- candidate might bo carried
out conjointly with the republican organiza
Thn total number of votes cast was not
far cither way from half a million. The In
dications are that Van Wyck received 210-
000 ; Low , 145,000 ; Tracy , 100,000 , and George ,
15,000. The aggregate Is swelled by a few
thousand votes cast for Gleason , Independ
ent democrat ; Ennlel , socialist , and Ward-
[ well , nrohlbltlonlst.
VAN WYCK'S RUNNING MATES.

Charles S. Falrchlld , who was secretary of
the treasury during Cleveland's first presi
dential term and whom the citizens' union
put up for comptroller , did not hold the pace
with Mr. Low. Ashbel I' . Fitch , originally
a rcpubllcrn and afterward a democratic
member of congress from a Tammany dis
trict of this city , was the ropublloia nom
inee for comptroller. He Is defeated by
about the s.imo _ vote * as the head of bib
ticket , Ihi was nominated with General
Tracy In recognition of the bervlcos he ren
dered In the presidential campaign last year ,
lighting as a gold standard democrat against
the democrats who had accepted the 1C ti > 1
platform of the Chicago convention. Color ,

Charles W. Dayton , late postmaster of this
city , who was nominated for comptroller on
the George ticket , polled probably half -is
many votes again as were given to Mr.
The legislative 'branch of the city govern
ment is Tammany-democratic. It Is a
doublchcadcd body , ono branch being the
jnunlclpal council , ccnslstlng of the presi
dent and twenty-eight members , and tbc
other , the board of aldermen , comprising
sixty members. The precise number of
democrats chosen cannot bo ( stated at the
jirescnt writing. There appears to be a strong
probability that the democrats have won a
majority ot the county nmd borough olllccs
alone with the muoilclpal places.
NUMIIEH OF VOTES CAST.
The vote of Van Wyck In Now York county
Is approximately the tame as was cast for
Bryan In 1SOB , which was 135,624. Guicral
Tracy , republican , polled approximately 65-
000 , agolDSt McKlnley's vote ot 150,359 In
Now York county , while Low , cltlzcna' union ,
polled approximately 77.000 anJ George , Jcf.
forson democrat , 12,000.
In Kings county , which Includes the city
of Brooklyn , the Ilryan vote was 70,882 , wbllo
Van Wyck's will bo almost the same. Against
McKlnlny's vote of 109,135 General Tiacy
liolls approximately 35,000 , while law's vote
Is approximately C5.COU.
In these two counties the straight repub
lican vole shows a falling off of nearly
17D.OOO , or In OXCCHS of the total votn for
Beth Low , whllo the Tammany vote equals ,

The palling come within about 50,000 of
the en tire registration , which , considering
the weather conditions under which the elec
tion proceeded , was all that could be ex

to a degree. It was such a day as , In the
years gene by , when voters Ikied up In the
streets to await tliulr chance to rant their
ballots to the judges Inside , was called "good
democratic weather. " Under the altered con
ditions , the voting being done within doors ,
this characterization cannot well apply. There

nearly over ) body who was qualified hail the
opportunity of voting. It v\as only lu the
outlylntf sections that the excrete'of the
tight of franchise was attended with any
luconvcnlcnce , And at night the whole city
was alive to the occasion. Bulletin boards ,
searchlights , newspaper extras , readers on
the Etaisra of scores of theaters , told the story
of the election , The jubilant had recourse
to the discordant fish hews for expression
of their joy , while Iho saloons , closed dur
ing the hours whllo the voting was In jrog-
rcasf did business on a scale tbatJyy-pmlscd
to compensate for the period of euforcaJ
( hirst , noisy ami brilliantly Illuminated. The
enthu U m In the vicinity of Tammany ball
was particularly great.
QUIGO IS GLUM.
Chairman Qulgg of tbo republican city and
couuty committee 'wu very gluia ud Jifl
the headquarters at 340. ! Ho refused to
make a formal statement and was very loath
to discuss the situation , At the headquar
ters there were few prominent republicans
present and they left the place shortly after
Qulgg did. No one would make a statement.
The republicans kept up their appearance of
confidence until Ihc early returns showed
the gains for Van Wyck and then collapsed
entirely. It Is impossible to describe the
gloom at the republican headquarters. If
anything , the depression was more apparent
than at the George headquarters. At 9
o'clock there were only ono or two repub
licans about. General Tracy did not appear
at headquarters at all.
Lemuel E. Qulgg of the city and county
committees went sadly up the stairs of the
Fifth Avenue hotel , leading to the state
headquarters parlor at 8:30 : and looked In
through the door. Then he turned and walked
"What do you think the outcome will be ? "
was asked of him.
"It seems to bo all outgo , " ho replied
with an effort to smile.
Senator I'latt remained In his apartments
ami declined to be seen ,
Outsldo the hotel Madison Square and the
streets branching oft from It wore packed
with a cheering , noisy crowd , watching elec
tion returns bulletined by a newspaper. It
was a great contrast to the silent little
gathering of republicans In the parlor.
THE GEOUGE VOTE.
Whatever might have been mo result Iwil
Henry George survived the campaign the de
ductions from earliest returns were that the
substitution of the BOH for the father as
thu mayoralty candidate of the Thomas Jef
ferson democracy had proved a failure from
any but the Kentlmantal point of view. In
Met , the George candidacy has made but a
beggarly showing , scarcely 5 per cent of the
votes In Now York City having been cast
for the son of the author of "Progress and
The George vote possibly buffered by the
failure of the voters or of the election offi
cials to supply 11 largu number of the pre
cincts with pasters to attach to the voting
papers. The law requires that In the event
of the death of a candidate before the date
of the election and after the voting papers
have been printed there shall be printed and
supplied to each precinct rosters upon which
Is printed the name of the person selected
In the prescribed manner to succeed the
deceased candidate , the pasters to be at
tached to the billet over the muno of the
original nominee. Although In the case of the
Thomas Jefferson democracy's ticket the per-
83n substituted was of the same name as
the candidate who died , Henry George , the
election board held that the letter of the
law should bo observed and pasters were
ordered printed and distributed In the pre
scribed manner. As already stated , the dis
tribution was noli done In all cases and con
sequently voters were under the necessity
of writing In thu name of the second Henry
George or voting the ticket as It st-od ,
neither of which , It Is claimed , was a literal
compliance with the law. In some cases
citizens who had Intended to vote for George
would not do so , anticipating that an attempt
would result In the vitiating of the ballot
as a whole. It has been held In previous
eases of a somewhat similar character that
the evident Intent 'of the voter should be
considered by the judges and the vote
counted QB regular , and this rule has In all
probability been followed in many casss to
VAN WYCK'S MOVEMENTS.
The headquarters of Robert A. Van Wyck
at the Bartholdl hotel was the scene of great
Joy aa the returns began to Indicate a
sweeping Tammany victory. A score or more
of people were in the rooms where the re
turns were being received and they cheered
lustily. Hut It was a feast without the host.
Mayor-elect Van Wyck did ijot appear at the
headquaiters at any time during thu night.
He left the headquarters at 4 p. m. , going
to pollco headquarters with former Mayor
Hugh J. Grant , where he entered a private
room In the ofllco of the holler Inspector. He
stayed there until 7 o'clock receiving re
turns. Ilu then left , presumably for the
Murray Hill hotel. It uns expected that he
would bo at headquarters some time during
tlio night , but at 10 o'clock the mayor-
elect's private secretary , Alfred Johnson , an
nounced that he would not be at the head
quarters at all and could not be seen. lie
also said that Judge Van Wyck cou'.d not
bo seen at all.

COLUMBUS. 0. , Nov. 2. The result In
Ohio Is so close that It may require the
fficlal count to determine the result , cspe-
lally on the political complexion of the
eglslature. The republicans and the demo-
rats are both claiming the state and the
eglslaturo with such persistence that It will
oqulrc the official count at lc.ast to got
113 or the other to concede defeat. In-
omplctu icturns Indicate the election of the
cpubllcan state ticket by from 10,000 to
2,000 , but the result on the legislature Is
o close that no definite figures can be given
n It tonight. The democrats claim confl-
ently a majority In both branches ot the
eglslature , but give no llgures on the num-
ier of state senators or rcprcscntatlvEs. The
cpubllcans claim fifty-four representatives
nd seventeen senators sure , or seventy-cms
otes on joint ballot , sovcnty-threo being
necessary to elect a senator. They also
lalm all of the twelve representatives whoso
ountlcs have not been definitely heard from
and all of which are In the doubtful list.
CLEVELAND. 0. , Nov. 2. Governor Dush-
ncll has carried Ohio by a majority ranging1
rom 20,000 to 25,000. This Insures the elec-
lon ot a republican majority In thei general
assembly and the return of Marcus A.
lanna to the senate. In Cuyahoga county
ho republicans have a majority from 3,000
o 5,000 and three republican scaatoro and
nine republican representatives. In the legls-
aturo are elected.
( Signed ) THE LEADER.
The Plain Dealer makes the following
tatcmcnt at 10:30 : tonight :
"The republican legislative ticket Is run
ning 10 per cent behind the state ticket and
he state ticket Is losing In Cleveland am av
erage ot 22 per precinct. This defection will
educe the republican plurality to a close
nargln , though It is probible tbit the re-
mbllcan state and legislative tickets will
) o elected. Sufficient retunw are In to In-
llcato that the republicans will carry Cuya-
mga county. Senator Hanna's homo , by a
ncager plurality. "
COLUMBUS , O. , Nov. 2. At 10 p , m. the
cmocratic state committee claimed the elcc-
lon of Its state ticket by from 8,000 to
0,000 plurality and a majority of the
eglslaturo on Joint ballot for "United
States senator. No figures -were given on
ho thirty-six state senators and 109 rcpre-
entatlves , but It was claimed that the re-
mbllcau loss of fourteen membsrs of the
eglslature lu Hamilton county would Inure -
uro democratic control ot the legislature.
The democrats also claim twelve members
of the legislature from Cuyahoga county ,
vhlch includes Cleveland , the homo of Sena-
or Hanna. The republican state commlt-
ce conceded the loss of Hamilton county ,
> ut claimed that there were not sufficient
retuins from Cleveland on which to base
any estimate. AVlth the loss of fourteen
nembers of the legislature In Hamilton
county and of twelvu members In Cuyahoga
county the republicans < do not expect to
carry the legislature. The republican state
committee claims It will carry Cuyahoga
county and make gains In other counties.
t states U had anticipated losses In the
cities on account of tights on bosslsm and
other troubles , but It had best reports
Irom the rural districts.
A heavy , continuous rain prevailed all day
and no doubt affected the rural vote. The
republican gains &ecm to como from the
rural democratic counties and democratic
gains from the republican counties , In which
the largo cities are located. The repub
licans at this hour do not conccdo the loss
of their state ticket or of the control of
the legislature , but admit that the legisla
ture will be close on both.
At 11:30 : p. m. the democratic managers
at their state headquarters had not changed
their earlier claims on the election of Chap
man as governor and on securing- majority
on Joint ballot In the legislature for senator.
No definite flgurca were given out and It was
conceded that some doubtful counties and

Chairman Nash at the republican state
headquarteis would uot give out any state
ment at this hour , but his assistants , who
were tabulating the returns , announced that
Ilushncll was elected governor and the cntlro
republican state ticket was elected by from
5,000 to 10,000 plurality. The basis of demo

Hiilt IN Plainly
The republicans of Omaha and Douglas
county have swept the board clean. Every
republican candidate , with possibly two or
three minor exceptions , has been elected by
decisive majorities , in some Instances the
majorities exceeding anything that has
been teen In this county for years. The
ticket all along th ? line has kept remark
ably oven and the variations between the
top man and the low man nro not abnor
On the state ticket the candidates for su
preme Judge ncul legents polled moro than
the full party strength , and while returns are
not complete they are sufficiently nearly so ii
to show that the majorities over their op-
ponoiits on the tripartite ticket will ap
proximate 2,000. The features of the returns
are the decided railing off of the total vote
duo chiefly to disgusted democratic and popu
list stay-at-homes and the wonderful ro-
vci'sal of the majorities given last year by
the country precincts In this county. In
Omaha , too , It begins to look ns If there were
no longer any sure democratic wards , only
ono \\ard , the Second having gone demo- jjj
cratlc right through.
Taking Into consideration the fact that
Holcomb carried Douglas county only a year
ago by 597 , the re iiUs.-lcnllcaled by the
tables that follow entitle the republicans to
" * *
more than ordinary credit.
Big John McDonald leads his ticket ami ,
the race with a majority over Hector of J
nearly 2,000. In view of the fact that
Hector was considered the" strong man on
the ticket , McDonald has Rurnrised even
hlmcelf. McDonald carried every ward la
Omaha except the Second , carried the country
precincts and held down Hector In bis own
town of South Omaha to less than half his
claims. His majorities are , with a few pre
cincts mlfslng : First ward , 3G ; Third ward ,
125 ; Fourth ward , 543 ; Fifth ward , 229 ; Sixth
word , 550 ; Seventh ward , 119 ; Eighth ward ,
! ! 0n ; Ninth ward , ROD. i
Mel Uoilfield , ton , Is scarcely less badly
beaten than Hostor. Iltdnclrt failed to draw
the icpubllcan support of which ho boasted
and w > 2K cut frightfully In democratic
strongholds. I ) . M. llaverly will be Iho next
The other candidates on the ticket had no
difficulty In holding their own. Treasurer
Hulmroil , Judge Baxter and Superintendent
Iloducll wore elected hands down. So were
Tom Crocker for icglster of deeds , Ncs ! I * .
SwaiiHOii for coroner and George McUrldo
for surveyor. A. C. Harto will bo commis-
sloner from the First commissioner district
by a majority that hardly leaves Frank
Kaspar enough nwtcilal to make him be
lieve hoas running.
The general republican wave has carried
the regular republican school board ticket
with It. The members-elect nro : For the
full term of thico years. A. A. Buchanan , J.
F. Ilurgcfs , J. 0. .Moore. II. J. Penfold , n. P.
Thomus ; for the two-year term , A. W. Johrv-
son ; fnr the one-year term , Andrew Klewlt.
AH to the bonds , no definite figures are at
huii'l , but both bond propositions seem to
have carried by the icqulBlto majorities.
