NEW YORK. Nov. 4. In spite of phe
nomenally large votes In New York and
Kings county for Bird S. Coler (dem.) the
return up to a late bour Indicate the re
election of Benjamin J. Odell (rep.) to the
governorship of New York atate by from
6,000 to 9.000. Coler'a plurality In Greater
New York exceeded 116.000. a aurplus of
3,000 above the claim made by Cbarlea F.
Murphy, leader of Tammany hall, but even
that large vote wss not aufflclent to over
come the republican majorities from up
the state.
Odell's vote in the country districts waa
lighter than two years ago, but Coler's was
also lower than Stsnchfleld's. In New York
cjty Coler's plurality was approximately
117,500, made up as follows: New York
county, S3, 000; Kings county, 26,500; Queens.
1,500, and Richmond, 2,800.
Oyster Bay, where President Roosevelt's
country home is situated, and where he
voted today, was carried by Coler, his
plurality being 131. Two years ago Odell's
plurality was 12.
Revised figures received up to 2:45 a. ra.
take Odell's plurality In the atate 11.240.
MONTGOMERY. Ala., Nov. 4. Alabama
democrats today returned a solid demo
cratic dalewaioa-to eongre,.ond xe-elctl
Governor William D. Jelks by a majority
of 25,000 ever J. W. Smith (rep.).
The negro voters remained away from
the polls, ths republican state convention
having proclaimed a "Illy white party."
The vote was very light.
LITTLE ROCK. Ark.. Nov. 4. Less than
CO per cent of the normal vote was polled
in the election tor congressmen in Arkansas
today. All the seven democratic nominees
were elected by majorities ranging from
1,000 to 8.000. In six districts there were
republican nominations.
In some placea the negro voters re
mained away from the polla. Rains and
confidence of a democratic victory seemed
to keep many votera at borne. At tbe elec
tion in September last, for state, county
and township officers, the vote was 121.000.
The total vote today will hardly exceed

the city and state. These indicate that tbe
governorship is very doubtful. Lans (dem.)

throughout the state.
The legislature will probably be repub
lican. Tbe vote on congressmen in the
Fourth and Fifth districts Is close. Re
turns at hand indicate that Kahn (rep.)
will be elected by, a amal plurality.
In the Fifth district Loud (rep.) is run
ning behind In tbe strong labor districts
In this city. In the Second district the
returns Indicate the probable defeat of
Combs (rep.).
DENVER. Colo.. Nov. 4 Returns from
the state Indicate that Colorado baa elected
a full republican ticket by small majorities.
This la conceded by leading democrats
though not by Chairman Smith. The dem
ocratic congressional candidates are claimed
to have run ahead of their ticket and one
or more of thera may be elected.
The legislature will undoubtedly be dem
ocratic on Joint ballot, as there are seven
teen democratic bold-over senators. This
Insures the return of Henry M. Teller to the
I'nited States senate.
The democratic county ticket in Arapa
hoe county is elected by from 2.006 to 4.000.
It Is believed the constitutional amend

the county of Arapahoe aad giving the riiy

NEW HAVEN, Conn.. Nov. 4 Connecti
cut today elected the full republican ticket
for stata offices, and all the Ova republican
candidatea for congresa. Returns received
from 150 of the 168 towns in the state, not
including tbe important citlea of New
Haven, Hartford. Bridgeport and Water
bury, indicated that the plurality for Cham
berlain, republican candidate tor governor,
would bo at least 15.000, an Increass of 1.000
over tmo years ago.
The lepubllcaa candidate for congress
man at large. George Lilly, la elected by
approximately the same plurality, while
the four congressional districts are also re
publican by aafa figures.
The state legislature will be republican,
thus Insuring the retura of O. H. Piatt to
the I'nited Stales senate. The greatest
surprise lo the election waa tbe vol of

He-suits of the election f hrmicliout the country yesterday show that the

proved by tbe iteopK The next congTVss will lie republican in both
btaucliee by m pood working majority, thus Insuring a continuation of
the Kdicy of that party. In New York, whjf'; the democrats had bullded

puhllcau ticket. In Iowa the republican leaders aecoti e fact
that the plurality for that party is only 70,i"i by saying thai ' due to
the lack of Interest on part of tbe voters In the election. In l Third
Iowa district, where Horace Boies was running for congress, the republi
can majority Is reduced somewhat, but Boles Is lieaten. Tbe vote in the
econd Iowa district will be close, but all the other districts are republican
by safe majorities. Colorado has elected the entire republican state ticket
by small but safe majorities. From all states come reports of republican
turns, returned a plurality for the repub
lican state ticket.
NEW HAVEN. Conn.. Nov. 4 The demo
cratic state organization conceded the elec
tion of the entire republican ticket In Con
necticut, with the general assembly safely
republican on joint ballot.
With complete returns from 140 of the
168 towns In Connecticut, the republican
plurality Is conservatively estimated at
WILMINGTON, Del., Nov. 4. In addition
to the evident election of Buckmaster, in
the first representative district, the demo
crats have also elected their candidatea
In the Fourth and Fifth representative dis
tricts. Both districts were represented by
democrsts In the last legislature. This
gives them three of tbe five districts In
George W. Sparks, regular republican,
who waa endorsed by the democrats, Is no
doubt elected in the fifth senatorial dis
trict of Wilmington over James W. Rob
ertson, union republican.
James P. Jones, (union republican). Is
apparently elected In the Second repre
sentative district of Wilmington. He is
the only Addlcks republican to be elected
In tbe city. There are two senatorial dis
tricts and five representative districts in
Wilmington. In the Second senatorial dis
trict Frank P. McNulty. democrat, holds
The returns from the state below Wil
mington are coming In slowly.
ATLANTA. Ga.. Nov. 4. Georgia today
elected a solid delegation of eleven demo
cratic rorgressmen. So little interest wee
taken in the election that the figures In
the eleven districts were not collated to
night. Except In the Seventh district, the
democrats had no oppoaltion and In that
district It was Inconsequential. The vote
polled was very light. The election waa
for congressmen cnly.
JACKSONVILLE, FLA.. Not. 4. A light
vote waa polled throughout the state. Con
gressmen Sparkmsn and Davis are re
elected from the First and Second dis
tricts without opposition. Attorney W. B.
Lamar la elected In the new Third dis
trict. There Is no opposition to the demo
cratic ticket, state or congressmen.
The legislature elected today will, elect
United States Senator Mallory, to succeed
himself, he already having been nominated
by primary.
The proposed constitutional amendment
providing for three new members of the
supreme bench was carried.
CHICAGO. Nov. 4.-Meager return, pre
vented anything like an accurate state
ment of tbe result In Illinois, although
here Is every Indication that the repub
lican ticket ha sbeen elected by a good
majority. The next legislature will be re
publican without a doubt and the suc
cessor to United States Senator Mason is
certain to be a republican.
In the Sixth congressional district, where
ex-Congressman William Lorimer has been
making a desperate fight to recover the
position be lost in the last election, the
contest is exceedingly close. Lorimer with
two-thirds of his district to hear from
had a lead of forty-one votes, and it will
be impossible to arrive at the result be
fore tomorrow.
The fight in (be Third district Is also
very close, but Wilson, tbe republican has
a lead of 200. with half of his district yet

INDIANAPOLIS. Ind.. Nov. 4 -Indiana
went republican today by from 23.000 to
40.000. The congreasional delegation re
maina the same, with nine republicans and
four democrats. The legislature will be
about twenty-Ore on Joint ballot and Sen
ator Cbarlea W. Fairbanks will be re
elected to tbe lulled States senate.
Throughout the state the republican leg
ialatlve ticket led the local candidate.
This waa due to ths strength of I'nited
States Senator Fairbanks, whose re-election
depended upon the result, and whose
strong campaign added much to tbe
chances of republican victory.

WASHINGTON. Nov. 4 Although the
returns from the doubtful congressional
districts were alow In arriving, the Indi
cations at midnight were that the repub
licans would control the next house of rep
resentatives by a narrow margin. In the
present house, with a membership of 357.
the republicans have forty-eight majority.
Vnder the new apportionment the Fifty
eighth house will consist of 88 members,
a majority of which is 194. The thirteen
southern ststes. not counting West Vir
ginia, but including Missouri, hsve 125 rep
resentatives. The democrats have carried
118 of these districts and the republicans
probably five, two tn Tennessee, one In
Kentucky and two in Missouri, with two
In North Carolina and one in Virginia. To
obtain a majority In the next house it was
necessary, therefore, for the democrats to
secure seventy-eight votes in the north and
west. In this territory they have at pres
ent fifty-two representatives. The latest
returns Indicate that this strength has
been held with the exception of one seat
each from Idaho, Montana and Nevada, as
to which the returns at this hour are In
conclusive. Adding 49 to 116 gives the
democrats 165.
The democrats show they have made a
gain of three la Pennsylvania, one In Ne
braska, one In Delaware, one in Wiscon
sin, two In Maryland, one in Colorado and
probably four in New York, swelling the
total to 178. This leaves them sixteen
short of a majority, Ub the .result In four
doubtful southern districts (o be heard
from and doubtful districts tn the north
and west front which the returns are as
as yet inadequate, as follows: West Vir
ginia. !: Ohio. 1; Indiana, 2; Illinois, 2;
Iowa, 1; Nebraska, 1; Kansas, 1; Minne
sota, 2; Michigan. 1; California, 2. and
Utah, 1, a total of 21.
Returns at 1 o'clock add one democrat
In New Jersey, one In Minnesota, one in
Illinois, one in Alabama and two In North
Carolina, a total of six. But two of tbe
gains credited to tbe democrat In Penn
sylvania should properly be set down as
fusion republicans, making tbe democrats
actually elected 184, with the doubtful dis
tricts In Minnesota having gone demo
cratic, tbe one in Kansaa republican, Kan

one in Iowa republican. Three of the four

WASHINGTON. Not. 4 The next United
States senate will be republican by at least
16 majority, against the present majority
of 20. The present senate containa fifty
four republicans and thirty-four democrats
in a total of ninety seats, there being two
vscancles from Delaware, where the re
publican legislature failed to elect. The
terms of thirty senators expire with the
present congress. There is also a vacancy
from Michigan, cauaed by the death of
Senator McMillan.
Of these thirty-one seata to be filled, not
including the two from Delaware, but In
cluding the McMillan vacancy, nineteen are
now republican and twelve are democratic,
Wellington of Maryland being classified as
a republican and Harris of Kansas. Mc
Laurin of South Carolina and Teller of
Colorado as democrats.
Seven states have already elected sena
tors to take their seats March 4, 1903.
Maryland has chosen Gorman, a democrat,
to aucceed Wellington, a republican; Ken
tucky, McCreary. a democrat, to succeed
Ieboe, a republican; loma has re-elected
Allison, a republican: Ohio has re-elected
Foraker, a republican: Louisiana baa re
elected McEDery. a democrat; Vermont has
re-elected Dillingham, republican, and
Georgia today re-elected Clay, a democrat.
Four democrats and three republicans,
therefore, "are already elected, leaving six
teen republican and eight democratic aeats
to be filled. The legislature la Oregon,
which will choose a successor to Simon,
has been elected and is ' republican. In
cluding Delaware, therefore, twenty-five
senstors mill be elected by the legislatures
chosen today.

The result of the contests Is still in doubt

It was only a raw wind that made elec
tion night disagreeable, but the crowd on
the streets was not abnormal nor particu
larly demonstrative. In fact, considering
how repeatedly the district has been as
sured that the retirement of David Henry
Mercer would be a great and eternal ca
lamity, the people seemed to bear up with
remarkable fortitude when his defeat be
came generally conceded.
Bulletins favorable to Mickey were
cheered, and so were those favorable to
Thompson, but the one kind followed the
other tn such constant succession that the
crowd soon realized that definite results
would not be forthcoming before the morn
ing, and the midnight cars carried home
all but the Hitchcock celebrants and tbo

novelty of the thing.
The republican county headquarters were
crowded all evening, as special reports by
telegraph and telephone were being re
ceived there. Special reports wero being
received at the state fusion headquarters
at tbe Dellone, but the crowd there was
only a baker's dozen or two and news
meager. Cliff Cole had installed a special
telegraphic service and was making up his
bets from the bulletins received.
The Jacksonlsn club and County Democ
racy quarters were comfortably filled, but
there was "nothing doing." as one of them

years gone by and quit $37 loser by the
The Mercer organ, which at 4 o'clock had
declared Mercer elected, distinguished itself
by a punctilious flop five hours later and
conceded that "it looked like Hitchcock."
During the evening there were many
whose hats were on one aide and probably
won't fit at all this morning, but there was
no exchange of physical discourtesies.
Neither had there been any arrests during
tbe day. The railroad colonizers sent two
men to East Omaha as "feelers," but when
they found four sheriff's deputies there and
were put through a cross-examination that
unearthed their history back to tbe fourth

Incomplete, but represented prsctlcally

the voting. They show a net gain of prac

over the majority given for Dietrich in
these same precincts two years ago. If
this ratio of gain continues throughout
Mr. Mickey will come to Douglas county
with a plurality of about 7.650.
At 11:45 p. m. Chairman Charles B. Scott

"Eighty-two precincts outside Douglas

to the precinct over the vote of 1900. Es
timating that Douglas county will give
Thompson 1.E00 majority and that that rate
of gain continues, Tbompscn will be elected
by from 6,000 to 10,000. Hitchcock Is safely
1.500 to the good, and Robinson will be
elected congressman from the Third dis

off of about 124 per cent from that of two

county the vote waa very light. The fine
weather kept the farmers In the field and
they could not be persuaded to go to the
polls. Tbe Indications are that Hanks haa
carried the county and Mickey will have
only a small plurality. The republican
state ticket appears to be In the lead.

In Omaha the fight against the attempt
of the combined corporations to foist Da
vid II. Mercer upon this district for a
fclxth term in congrees hss resulted in the
oveimbelming defeat Of the nonresident
and the election of G. M. Hitchcock, dem
ocratic candidate, by a plurality that will
reach betweeu l,20ti and 1.600 this In a
district that tno years ago gave Mercer
1.600 plurality. Mercer's local newspsper
orpan conceded his opponent's election
early in the evening.
Despite the lavish expenditure of barrels
of boodle, the revolt against Mercer as
serted Itself all over hi district and re
publican strongholds have given msjorltlea
for his democratic opponent. The Fifth
ward in Omaha, for example, that gave
Mercer 177 majority m 1900. this year
gives Hitchcock a majority of 154.
Upturns from fifty-four, or more than
half the precincts in Douglas county, ex
clusive of South Omaha, trive Mercer 6.183
as against 5.532 for Hitchcock, when the
same precincts two years ago gave Mercer
7.356 as against G.Of.5 for Edgar Howard.
In other word, in these precincts, mostly
republican, the majority for Mercer in 1900
of 1,301 has been transformed Into a ma
jority for his opponent of 350. Three wards
of South Omaha, tbe democratic strong
bold, already heard from, but not Included
In these figures, lve Hitchcock a majority
of 185.
While considerably lighter than It waa
two years ago, the vote on governor seems
to follow that on congressman, Mickey
(rep.) running If anything behind Mercer
and Thompson (fua.) running ahead of
Hitchcock throughout Douglas county. Fifty
precincts completed, exclusive of South
Omaha, Bhow 4.557 for Mickey and 6,376 for
Thompson, a majority for the democrat! o
candidate of Sl, where th same prow
rincts In 1900 gave Dietrich (rep.) a major
ity of 907. If the same rats ot gain Is
maintained, Thompson will have some 1,100
majority In Douglas county.
No definite figures are yet obtainable on
other offices. The vote on many promises
to be so close a to require complete re
turns to tell which are elected.
Blsrkssrs Hope Against Hope.
Shortly after midnight, when Chairman
Blackburn of tbe Mercer congressional com
mittee was about to close his office for the
nicbt, he gave Tbe Bee this statement -
"Forty-nine precincts of the district. In
clusive of Blair and Fontanelle in Wash
ington county, give Mercer a majority of
30G. Sarpy county gives Hitchcock a ma
jority of 285. reducing Mercer's lead in
Sarpy county, and forty-nin precincts In
the balance of the district to 21. Our
figures satisfy us that Mercer will be
elected by about 500 majority, though it
may take the official count to settle th
contest. We have twenty republican pre
cincts and seventeen democratic precincts
in the city to hear from. We hav returns
from only six of the fourteen country
precinct and returns from only three of
the South Omaha wards. South Omaha will
not go more than 300 against us. The
balance of Washington county can be
counted on safely for an additional 100 for
Mercer's msjority. I concede th defeat of
no one."
Shortly after 11 o'clock Chairman Goss
of the republican county central committee
said: "The indication are that the county
ticket. Inclusive of the legislative ticket,
is elected. There seems to be no such
cutting on It as on Mercer and Mickey.
Reports would indicate that the vote la
the county is about a atandoff between
Mickey and Thompson. While not in such
close touch with the congressional situa
tion aa Is the congressional committee, we
do not concede Merr's defeat."
Hitchcock's Claim Way 1'p.
At midnight Mr. Hitchcock smilingly said
goodnight to the friends in his office and
started home. His last statement was: "I
believe my majority will be nearly t.000.
I believe, too, that Thompson will pull
through all right, but I have no figures
here in my office to baae an estimate on."
Two hours earlier he had said: "I believe
I have a majority of l.iOO. for 600 of which
I am Indebted to South Omaha." The
South Omaha calculation he later revised
to 50.
Vice Chairman West of the democratic
county central committee gave this as his
final statement for- the nlgbt: "I think
Thompson has carried the county by 2.000
to 2,500, but I am not getting direct stste
returns and cannot speak tor other counties
further than to stand on my first predic
tion of a state majority of 10.000 to 15,000.
Hitchcock is elected by 1.500 snd the legts
lstlv ticket and county attorney will hug
that majority very closely. So will Lobeck.
but I am not in position to estimate the
showing of the other candidates."
Merrerile Money Vanishes.
Early in the evening tbe little Letting
that was dune was at even money, but at
11:30 the board at Cliff Cole's had been
decorated with odds of 25 to 10 on Hitch
oock. 60 to 30 on Thompson, 60 to 30 oa
English, with takers for only the latter two.
