A report was received last night from the Com?
mittee on Wat? hers, giving information about
extensive frauda which were piactlsed by Tam?
many men at the polis on Election Day, with the
evident conaent and connivance of Tammany
and Republican election ofT.cers. The Execu?
tive Committee authorized the empio; ment of
epeclal counsel to take the evidence submitted
by the Citizens Union watchers and proaecute
the guilty election officer? In regard to the
evidence, James W. Pryor said after the meet?
"There ?rill be sufficient evidence to send a
large number of election officers t > prison, and
the evidence Is of such a character that ?
court will refuse to convict the offenders. Votes
were bought openly by Tammanj worker? near
the polling placca, and the election officer?
Illegally threw out or miscounted enough x ite?
In pom? district? to make a material chai .??
the result of the election SO fai ns some ?f th??
candidates for district office? were concerned.
We Will be working for the future In seeing that
the election officer? ??? | unlshed and the purlt)
of the ballot is safeguarded."
Other members of the Executive Committee
declared that the evidence of fraud in the el<
tlon would be sufficient to rend some i.f the
flection f.Hirers to sine Hing. F t ?? ? irent rea?
sons, they paid, th?? evidence could not be dis?
closed until it had been brought to the attention
of the Grand Jury and the guilty offlctre had
bepn piaceri under arrest.
Some of the members of th? Executive Com?
mittee at the meeting said that, while thrro had
been evidences of a deal between th>- Tammany
and Republican leaders, bj which many Repub?
lican votes were thrown to Van Wyck. that
was a matter they did not care t ? discuss at

made the following statement to-day: The result
In New-York Is simply what might be expected
from a division In the ranks of the people who won
the victory last year. Tills is all there Is about It,
When it became Impossible to make a union of

As to responsibility, every man will have to decide
thai for himself

I found quite a number of mer, who intended to

of the Greater New-York territory, making S Dem?

were much gratified at thi? suggestion, but no

has visited London, and has had an opportunity
to barn the views of the Foreign Office as well
as the mate of Hritish feeling on the subject.
All the tendencies on the other side art favorable

OHIO LEGISLATURE CLOSE?

CRATP-TAI.K ???G? A COMBINE AGAINST
????? Sl/BSIDHS-CHARCIES OF ffRAt'D
MADE BY THE DEMOCBATIC
Columbus. Ohio, NOV. 4.?The talk about a
combine) In the Legislature against Senator
Hanna has subsided, pending the Interest In
the official counting of the vote In close counties.
As the official canvass of the vote In the eighty
eight counties proceeded to-day the Republican
plurality on the State ticket increased, and on
the legislative ticket? It appeared to be getting
toward I very etose shave. While the Republi?
can plurality on the State ticket exceed, ?? 000,
the vote on the legislative ticket Is almost aa
close as u could be. For this reason there la
still ttstssual anxiety at the respective State
headquarters of both parties.
The Republicans assert that the Legislature
stands 7."? Republicans Ul 7<> Democrats a? Joint
ballot for Senator, and their candidates for Rep
re^entatlves In three of the close count,es have
been elected by the following pluralities: Dela?
ware. County, 2?); Wood County, 28; Noble
County, BS; a total of 142 In th? plurality of
these thr^e cousttoa A change of ? vot?e
properly distributed In these three counties
would, therefore, have turned th-? result In
tlM Legislature by giving these Representatives
10 the Democrats. Then the Legislature would
have stood 72 Republicans and 73 Democrats
on Joint ballot
When It is remembered that the total vote
of Ohio last year was over I.OWtOOQ, and is
almost as large this year, it Is rtAdlly seen
that 7- is a very small percentage, and this
Is what makes the Democratic State Committee
continue t? claim the Legislature and the Re?
publican Stato Committee to bo so closely on
guard In watching the counting In the clos?
counties The ufficiai count of Delaware County
Is in, but with protests and notices of con?
test from the Democrats, and the same Is true
of Noble County. The officia] count of Wood
Count' may not be completad until Saturday,
although they expect to get through tO-nsOfTOW,
In Wood County to-day the Democrats pro
tested against counting the vote of a precinct
ubere the place of voting was outside the pre?
cinct, hut within the ward. Had this precinct
been thrown out. It would have elected the
Democratic candidate for Representative by a
plurality of five, instead of the Republican can?
didate by twenty-eight. The vote of the pre?
cinct was counted, and the Democratic protest
filed. Other technicalities are expected In the
I regress of the vote in that county to-morrow.
In Noble County there was a long contest over
twenty-seven scratched tickets that were finally
thrown out because they were not properly
marked. This was a Republican lota. Every
point Is being contested in the official count of
the close counties.
Chairman Nssh says to-night that the Repub
llcans have a safe majon'y of five on Joint
ballot In the Legislature. He admits that the
; pluralities are small in some counties, but says
I they are safe. He has no doubt of the result
In many of the counties which he claims, except
I possibly Wood County, and in the event of the
I loss of that county's Representative, he says
j the Legislature would stand seventy-four Re?
publicans to seventy-one Democrats, and the
j Republicans haw a majority of three on Joint
I il Mr, Nash said that the returns from
the Thirteenth District Showed that the Repub?
licans had a plurality ?<? 4,322, s?, that there are
no longer any of the State Senator? In doubt,
and the Senate will stand nineteen Democrats'
to seven?, en Republli ana
At Republican state headquarters Summit
County is not considered to be as doubtful as
heretofore, and ItS tWO Repr?sentatives are be?
lili coi.e-de l to the Democrats. This would
make th?? House ",s Republican? and ?1 Dem?
erits. Chairman sfcConvtlle does nm admit
that th.? Republicana have carried the Ninth.
District for their candidate for Senator, and he
still ? lalms the Representative? from Noi la,
Delaware, Wood. Muskingum and Other counties
clalnn-d by the Republicans ]|. also expects
the official count to give the Democrat? two of
the twelve members of the Legislature from

Late to-night It became known that the courts
would be resorted to for th.? purpose of pre?
venting Hoards of Election from issuing
cert Ideates to the Republican candidates In cer?
tain counties. The caaes will b<? brought In the
lower courts and th -noe tak.-n to the Supreme
Court ns soon as possible. The Republics?
state Committee also has lawyers preparing
cases of contest. As each branch of the LtglS?
la.tur?? Is the tribunal of last resort in Judging of
the qualifications of Its own members, the Re?
publicans have an advantage In their control of
the House over the Democrats, who control the
Senat ?. There are thirty-six Senators, with
only two or three contests possible in that body.
In the Mouse there are |ts9 members, with a
dozen or more seats that can be contested, and
the Republicans claim a majority of seven In
