complete returns from all over the state,
i received tip to 10:30 p. m Charles K.
Hughes, thu republican candidate, has been
elected governor of New York state over
William Randolph Hearst, the nominee of
the democratic party nnd the Independence
league, by approximately a plurality of
',0tt. Two years ago Governor Illggina was
elected on the republican ticket by S0,3.
There was some doubt expressed tonight
as to tlio fate of the democratic nnd Inde
j iiendence league tickets outside of Mr.
, Hearst, several of the New York news
impers which have been supporting Mr.
Hughes doctoring that there was a chance
that the subordinate officer of the demo
cratic and Independence league combination
hud been elected.

i paign as 'Kight-hour"' Rock and who
claimed he had been ' tricked by the In

there has been a notable falling off In the
ote from 1!M. which was a presidential
year. The republican ticket showed the
greatest loss in this respect, especially ill
statement by Republicans.
In claiming the election of Mr. Hughes
tonight by a large plurality Republican
State Chairman Woodruff said:
I knew all along we had lost the labor
vote. Kvery possible tiling was done to re
tovrr It, but 1 think without avail.
Mr. Hughes raid:
I am very gratified If I am elected, as
now cenm to tx the east. Whatever my
i.lurulity may be my f.eling is nut of ela

Neither Max F. lhniseti, chairman of the
Independence league, V. J. Connors, cliafr
nian tf the democratic committee, nor Mr.
Hearst were willing to admit that they
had been defeated at a late hour tonight.
There were many odd turns to the bal
loting. Hero In New York it was Rich
mond borough that defeated Mr. Hearst
for mayor a year ago, and It was Brook
lyn, with u. big plurality, which helped lilm
make tha race so close. Mr. Hearst
Ivarely carried Brooklyn today, but ran

ganised labor cities in the Vnited States, it
was exacted Mr. Hearst would have a

Nearly every polling place was plugged by

graceful election has never been held here.

Republicans carried Douglas county In
spite ot many oliKlailes. - They curried it
in spite of the newly Installed democratic
city administrations in both Omaha and
South Omaha. They curried It In spite of
the home rule dodge raised by the demo
crats. They curried it in spile of the di
version created by the telcphono light,
which furnished the democrats their sinews
of war. They curried It In spite of the
combined opposition of the railroads, who
lined up with the democrats on a promlao
of protection on terminal taxation.
The two places where the republicans fell
down arc those of congressman and county
attorney, on which the opposition centered
Its fire moat. O. M. Hitchcock will go back
to congress with a majority In tho neigh

two years ago took the pluce then occu

Republican Mate Ticket.
The republican slate ticket runs a little
better In Douglas county than Sheldon.

The Independent telephone franchise wu
ratified by un overwhelming majority.
Scarcely a precinct In the Whole city failed
to register in favor of a second telephone.
The Improvement bonds were also carried
nnd presumably the referendum propo
sition, too, although people paid little at
tention to It. The vote on tho constitu
tional amendment for railroad commission
was almoft unanimous.
Vote Starts Karly.
The voting started out brisk as soon aa
the polls opened, but the day was Inter
rupted wllh Intermittent showers, which
Interfered w ith the at tendance at the poll.
Workers were well In evidence, however,
especially thoso retained by the opposing
telephone companies. The total vote was
short considerably of the registration, but
still ulte well polled under adverse condi
tlens. The republicans carried nine out of
the twelve wards In Omaha, but the demo

very rapidly aitcr tho polls closed at 6
o'clock and grut crowds gathered around
tho bulletin boards and political head
quarters. The results, therefore. Were
known comparatively caily.

The fact is Omaha was deeply concern, d
In the returns. Further evidence of this
fact was supplied by the thousands of peo
