JOY A T STA TEHEA DQUARTERS
CORRIDORS OF THE FIFTH AVENUE HO
Senator Platt walked Into the Fifth Avenue
Hotel soon after S o'clock last night, with a
quiet smile of satisfaction on his face. He had
Just returned from hi* home in Tioga County,
whither he had journeyed to cast his vote. The
satisfied expression that hie face bore came of
the knowledßf that even thus early in th*- even-
Ing: it was apparent that McKlnley had carried
the State by a large majority. Senator Platt
went directly to the rooms of the State head
quarters, and there h«» stayed until there was
no longer room to doubt that McKlnley had
been selected by the people to preside over the
country for another term. Comparatively few
people were gathered in the rooms which for
weeks have been the centre of hustle and ac
tivity. William Barnes, Jr.. chairman of the
Executive Committee of the Republican State
Committee, was at his desk receiving reports*
from all over the State. Senator Platt seated
himself near Mr Barnes, and listened to the re
ports which came over the telephone. These
were eminently gratifying, but it was rarely
that the Senator commented upon them. When
some district captain would report some par
ticularly satisfactory majority for McKinley the
Senator's appreciation was expressed In a nod
of the head or a smile. Mr. Barnes, on the
other hand, was inclined to be enthusiastic, and
frequently he would remark to the man at the
other end of the wire: "Good: you've done cap
itally," "I congratulate you," and so on.
The attention of Senator Platt and Mr. Barnes
was devoted almost entirely to the State re
turns. For information an to how other States
were going: they depended solely upon occasional
bulletins that wens sent down to them from
Parlor DR. Among the few people who were
admitted to Mr Barnes 1 room were Colonel
A E. Baxter, clerk of the Assembly; Cornelius
Van Cott. Jon E. Hfdges. Reuben L Fox, Frank
H. Platt, ex- Governor Cornell, D wight Lawrence
and Anderson Lawrence.
Upstairs in Parlor DR conditions were en
tirely different. There were gathered a large
number of Republican leaden to learn the oat
come of their efforts for the success of their
party. The room is one of the largest In the
Fifth Avenue Hotel, but it was packed to the
doors. At one »nd of it was a long table, on
which was a telegraphic Instrument, which was)
ticking off the returns without •> break. Am

they were received they were read aloud by
Luther Little, and as the evening wore on and
the victory of McKinley became assured, the
enthusiasm grew In intensity. The cheerlna;
wa* constant, and when from time to ttme news
was received that State after State had gone
for McKinley the applause wae intermingled
with exuberant Vries: "We wish to remain a
free p«ople!" "We wear McKinley badges on
cur coats and In our hearts!" "How about
Croker's banners now?" and "We're safe for
another four years," were some of the com
The corridors of the Fifth Avenue Hotel were
so densely filled that It was Impossible almost
to move. The crowd was a joyful one, and the
gay spirit that pervaded It was fre
quently vented In cheers, In the blowing of
horns and the twirling of rattles. Republicans
of prominence, who usually .are patterns of
sedateness. joined as lustly as did the younger
element in calling for cheers for McKinley and
Roosevelt, and In singing "Bryan's in the cold,
VOTERS SHUT OUT IN XXIST
CONGESTION IN THIRTT-FOrRTH ELEC
FORTY-TWO MEN IN LINE WHEN THE
POLLS CLOBED— REMARKABLE PLUCK
OF A CRIPPLED REPUBLICAN.
Eight hundred and seventy-two voters of the
1.098 registered In the Tblrty-fourth Election
District cast their votes at the polling place In
Eighth-aye. near One-hundred-and-thirteenth
st. yesterday between the hours of fi a. m. and
5 p. m. When the polls were declared closed
there were forty-two anxious and angry voters
still In line. It is probable that about ow hun
dred and fifty voters were «hut out on account
of the excessive number of voters in the district,
for during the day many men came to the polls,
noticed the long line of waiting men. and then
went away again. Just before the polls closed
the shut out voters made a regular football rush
to get inside the temporary polling place along
side the pavement, knowing that If they could
only gain entrance they would cave their votes,
whether they had the ballot In their hand at 5
o'clock or not.
The election Inspectors and poll clerks were
bitterly criticised for allegsd slowness. In order
to facilitate matters, as they thought, the reg
ular method of giving a voter a ballot ap soon as
he reached the guard rail was not observed. In
stead, the officials In charge gave out the ballots
In blocks of twenty. Then the twenty went into
the separate booths, marked their ballots and
stood In line until there were twenf. when the
official in charge of the ballot box w uld receive
the waiting ballots The inspectors and clerks
asserted that they made time by this, but it
was a departure that came in for denunciation
from those who failed at the last to get their
There was not the slightest disposition among
the voters to make trouble for the police or the
election officials until about 5 o'clock, when It
became apparent that In spite of all the crowd-
Ing many voters wot' '3 be shut out. The rush
attempted then nearly carried the policemen off
their feet and for a time blocked the Eighth -aye.
cars. At 5 o'clock the streets were lined with
spectators attracted by the knowledge that the
election officials were racing with time in order
to get all the votes in.
The Thirty- fourth Election District Is bounded
by One-hundred-and-tenth and One-hundred
and-fourte^nth sts.. and by Seventh and Morn
ingslde ayes. The Republican and Democratic
captains dlr covered just before registration time
arrived that there were about thirteen hundred
voters in the district. Of these 1.098 registered.
C-eneral Rodenbough, chief of the Bureau of
Elections, and General Greene tried to arrange
matters so that the counting would be facilitat
ed, and had a number of reputed experts trans
ferred from nthf»r districts to this overcrowded
one. How well they succeeded in getting the
votes in has already been noted.
Ex-Justice William N. Cohen called up Mr.
Gruber. the Republican leader of the Assembly
district. In the afternoon, and suggested that if
thH voters at the close of the day could be got
inside they would be entitled to vote, even If
their votes were not deposited until after 5
o'clock. This suggestion did not apparently
have much weight with the election officers. At
5 o'clock there was room for fifteen or twenty
more voters inside the polling place, If the elec
tion officers had simply allowed them Inside.
There was an abundance of room back of the
guard rail, but the space in front was so
cramped that that was quickly congested.
The Republican watchers were unanimous in
