How Sir. Dana's Journal Summarizes the
Landslide of Yesterday.
New York, Nov. 8. Special Tle Sun
Fays: The elections throughout the Union
yesterday resulted in sweeping Demo
cratic -victories. Mr. Cleveland
was elected President, and a Democratic
House of Rspresentatives was chosen.
Some of the States which heretofore
have been solidly in the Republican column
gave substantial Democratic victories.
Some of the features of the election were
the very great majorities rolled up by
New York and Brooklyn, the cutting down
of majorities in the strong Republican
counties of the interior, and the great
change in the voting generally throughout
the Western States.
In the South the Third party cut a sorry
figure, their most crushing defeat, perhaps,
being in Georgia, where Tom Wat
eon was beaten by 4,000 br his

for its Ocala platlorm and agitation,
the Third party was in a hope
less minority. In Arkansas, the Third
party Iusion with the Republicans had no
effect whatever on Democratic suc

Washington, Nov. a At midnight it
is evident that the Congressional estimate
made in The Dispatch ten days ago of a
reduced Democratic majority is very nearly
ascurate. There have been slight changes
in some of the States, but they about
offset each other. In Connecti
the Democrats maintain their
present represention where a reduction was
predicted and almost conceded. Arkansas
and South Carolina probably each elect one
Republican Congressman, which is really
better than expected.

SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DIBPJLTCH.l
New York, Nov. 9. 1 a. m. The Sun
says: New York City complete gives
Cleveland 174.S85, Harrison 93,760. Cleve
. land's majority 76,125.
Cleveland carries New York State by
35,000, also Connecticut, New Jersey, Del
aware, Indiana, Illinois, and is over
A special from Washington says: Gen
eral Harrison and bis Cabinet at midnight
conceded Republican defeat.
At 2' a. M. the Democracy claims the
election of Cleveland and Stevenson bv a
decisive majority, and the Republicans,
while pointing out that the returns are not
complete, are disposed to concede that
Harrison and Reid are defeated. Tre
mendous Democratic gains were early
reported from New York City and Brook
lyn, indicating that Tammany and the Kings
county machine had performed effective
work. When the interior of the Empire
State showed Republican losses on a com
paratively light vote it was demonstrated
that 36 electoral votes had been transferred
to the Cleveland column.
The Democratic majority in Connecticut
was hardly expected by the party managers
themselves. Cleveland carries the Nutmeg
State by nearly 2,000, and bis lead in New
Jersey is about the same as In 1888.
The returns from Indiana are very mea
ger, and the majority will hardly be much
over 1,000 either way, with indications
slightly in favor of the Republican I
ticket. From AVest Virginia prac
tically no advices have been re
ceived, but the Democrats are claiming
the State rather more vigorously than their
opponents. The Republicans think they
have broken the solid South by carrying
Delaware, but there is a lack of figures to
support the statement.
Illinois furnished the surprise of the day,
and it was when the bulletins from the
Sncker State came in that the friends of
President Harrison practically gave up the
struggle. Republican leaders at Chicago do
not concede yet, but everything indicates
that Cleveland has a small plurality in the
once banner State.
From the farther West comes the intelli
gence that Wisconsin has returned to the
Republican fold, and that Iowa is probably
in line, too. The Populites claim Kansas,
Nebraska, Colorado and others of the
smaller granger and silver States, but there
is not much definite information from those

given in each State in 1889, and the retnins

CARTER STILL CONFIDENT
That Harrison Will Sncoeed Himself,
Though Conceding New York Ho Fig
ures on Several Close States as Republi
can in the Electoral College.
New York, Nov. 8. Chairman Carter
The abnormal Democratic majorities In
New York City and Brooklyn will be diffi
cult to overcome by Republican (rains
throughout the State. Our Demo
cratic friends seem to have under
stood their needs in the State
of New Voile when they enacted
the present ballot law. Fortunately
the National Committee relied upon three
distinct combinations, and two of them yot
remain intact, even It the loss of New Tork
should he conceded. With Indiana the elec
tion of Harrison Is assured, and Republican
victory in that State is assuiod. I am in ie
ceipt of a telegram fiom a reliable and thor
oughly posted citizen of Indiana w ho says:
"The lull Republican vote has been polled
fluoughout the State, and returns up to 10
o'clock to-night Indicate Republican paint-,,
and the commute Is confident the State has
been carried for the Republican ticket."
The vote of Indiana, added to other relia
ble Republican votes In the Electoral Col
lege, insuies the re-election of President
Harrison. Eliminating entirely fiom con
sideiation tho State of New Tork, the
Republicans can still elect, with the
vote of Connecticut, West Vir
ginia and Delaware, without the vote
of Indiana; but having the vote
of Indiana assuicd, ue are not driven to
our thiid line. Benjamin Harrl'on will be

WHAT REID'S, PAPER SAYS.
It Think. IUlnol.,or Indiana Will Elect
New Yoke, Nov. 9 The Tribune will
say this morning:
1 he returns received at the-hour of writ
ing are not satisfactory to Republicans.
It can only be said at this hour that re
turns are not at hand to Justify the
assertion that several great Western
States have given their electoral votes
to Mr. Cleveland, and without those
votes he is still in danger of disappoint
ment. The Republicans have failed to carry
New York. The machinery in great Demo
cratic cities has turned out majorities suffi
cient to overpower the votes of Re
publican counties, which appear to
have been cut down below expecta
tions. In the absence of leturns
from any considerable part of New Jersey
It can only be assured that the State has
cone Democratic on the Presidental ticket
as usual. Connecticut is claimed with con
fidence In dispatches by both parties, but
tho returns thus far received appear to fa
vor the Democrats. With New Tork,
New Jersey and Connecticut, four or five
probable votes for Michigan, and a South
made solid by irand and wholesale denial
of suffrage, Mr. Cleveland would have about
216 electoral votes, needing only those of
Indiana or Illinois to assure his election. At
present writing Indiana and Illinois are
claimed by both parties, but without suffi
cient full returns to place the result in
either State beyond doubt..

No Totals From Precincts Received, but
Both Sides Claim Victory.
Wheeling, W. Va., Nov. a At mid
night very little more Is known abont the
election in West Virginia than when the
polls closed. Not a single precinct has
been heard from in Wheeling. The ballot is
lengthy and the counting process slow.
Every county from which estimates have
been received np to midnight show Repub
lican gains, except Kanawha, where Chair
man Dawson of the Republican State Com
mittee claims the election of the State
Republican ticket, and that the State has
gone for Harrison. The Democratic claims
are quite the contrary. No figures have
been received and will not be before to
morrow. There is no possible way to estU
mate the Congressional delegation.
Carter Still Thinks Harrison and Reid
Hare tho Best of It.
New Tork, Nov. 9. Chairman Carter
issued the following bulletin at midnight:
On returns received by tho Republican
National Committee at midnight, Harrison
and Reid have .carried the States or Call,
fornla, Maine, Massachusetts, ten votes in
Michigan Ohio, Oregon,
Weaver Probably Has the Electors An
Lincoln-, Neb., Nov. 8, Special. As
a result of a careful poll during the voting
throughout the State and meager returns,
the situation in Nebraska can;be said to be
like this: On joint ballot in the Legislature
ttje Democrats and Independents can elect
a United States Senator by six majority.
The Republicans elect the Governor, with
the rest of the State ticket divided between
all parties. The Democtats get two Con
gressmen, the Independents 1 and the Re
publicans three. The electors are more un
certain, but everything points to Weaver.
The committees estimate the situation
thus: Democratic The strength of the
three parties has been about equally devel
oped. Cronse, Republican, is probably
elected by a small plurality. The Legisla
ture is 25 per cent Democratic, 10 Inde
pendents and the balance Republican. No
Republican United States Senator can be
returned. It is reasonably sate to count on
the electors for Weaver. The Republicans
get one Congressman, Hainer in the Fourth.
The Democrats get four and the Inde
pendents one Kem, in the Sixth. Bryan's
plurality for Congress is probably 1.500.
Crounse (R) is probably elected Gov
ernor. The vote lor the three Gubernator
ial candidates stands about as follows:
Crounse, 80,000 to 85,000; Van Wyck
(I), 70,000 to 75,000, and Morton (D), 60,
000 to 55,000. Three Republican Congress
men are proDaoiy returned, with the other
three districts close. The Republicans will
control the lower branch of the Legislature,
but on joint ballot the Democrats and In
dependents have a small majority. The
situation with reference to the electors is
too uncertain to judge at present.
Democrats WiU Have a Solid Congres
sional Delegation Watson Downed.
Augusta, Ga., Nov. 8. Richmond
county will give Black (Dem.) nearly 9,000
majority over Tom Watson, of ''Where-am-I-at"
celebrity. Returns from other dis
tricts indicate the Democrats will carry
every district, and that Georgia will send a
solid Democratic delegation to the next
Congress. Third party candidates were run
in every district, but'were snowed under.
Speaker Crisp is re-elected by an increased
The delegation 'till stand as follows:
First, Rufus Lester (re-elected! ; second,

vote in this city was light, and it is pre
sumed that there was a light vote through
out the territory. The indications are that
Antonio Joseph (D.) is re-elected delegate
to Congress by from 1,200 to 2,000 majority.
Cleveland's Majority 20,000 Republicans
May Get One Congressman.
Charleston, Nov. 8. Special This
Slate chose to-day a Governor, nine Presi
dental electors and seven Congressmen. At
midnight the indications are that the Demo
crats have elected Congressmen in every
district, the close vote being in the Sev
enth, which will require an official count.
Cleveland's majority in the State will ex
ceed 20,000. The Weaver vote is very light,
not over 2,000 at the most.
The Congressional delegation will stand
as follows: First, W. H. Brawley (re
elected); Second, W. Jasper Talert; Third,
X A. C. Latimer; Fourth, George W.
Shell (re-elected); Fifth, T. J. Strait; Sixth,
John L. McLaurin.
In the Seventh district the candidates
are General K. W. Moise, Democrat, and
G. W. Murray, colored Republican. The
district has a very large colored majority.
It is represented in the present Congress by
William Elliott, Democrat, who received
3,700 votes against 4,700 cast for two Re
publican contestants. It is quite possible
that General Moise may secure the election,
making the delegation solid.
Cleveland May Get 85,000 Plurality
Chicago Heavily Democratic
Chicago, Nov. 9.-12:30 a. m. The in
dications are that Illinois has gone for
Cleveland and Stevenson by from 5,000 to
10,000 plurality, and that the entire State
Democratio ticket is elected. Later re
turns may change these figures, as the
country districts, yet to be heard
from are likely to cut down
the Democratic gain in the country pre
cincts. Chicago ijnd Cook countv will
give Cleveland 'and Stevenson and
Altgeld, the Democratic candidate for
Governor, not less than 15,000
plurality, which will probably more than
offset the Republican majority in the coun
try precincts, as the country thus far has
shown the Harrison vote to be less than in
18S8, when Harrison had a plurality of 22,
000 in the whole State.
Two hundred and twenty precinctsin the
State outside of Chicago give Harrison
41,259; Cleveland,. 35,839. The same pre
cincts in 1888 gave Harrison 38,748
and Cleveland 31,805, so that
Cleveland's net gain is 1,523. The
City Press Association sows that 500
precincts out of 693 Cleveland, in Chicago,
gets 97,344; Harrison. 72.190. This gives
Cleveland a lead of 25,154 thus far in Cook
connty. As Harrison's plurality in the
State outside of Cook county in 188S was but
21,000, and the county returns thusfarshow
a falling off of 1,523 in J!20 precincts, it
would seem that the result must be very
close probably not over 5,000 for Cleve-'
land. The Democrats have probably
elected both Congressmen at large, and have
carried not less than 10 of the 20 Congress
ional districts in the State.

Jacksonville, Fla., Nov. 8. Special
This State to-day elected four Presidental

at midnight are that Florida's solidly Demo

People's party, but that it will be lighter

Chairman Dick, of the Republican State
Committee, claims that the Harrison
electors in Ohio will have a plurality of
from 23,000 to 25,000. He has heard from
only two Congressional districts the first
and the second and claims the election of
the Republican candidates by about 2,000

CSrECIil, TELEGEAM TO TITE DISPATCH.
Washington, Nov. a Four years ago
to-night President Harrison sat in his
modest little house in Indianapolis, and
received the joyful tidings that his country
men had elevated him to the highest public
office at their disposal. On that oocasion he
was surrounded bv his family and a few
personal friends. His beloved wife was by 1
his side to share bis triumph.
But the scene enacted upon that occasion
differs somewhat from the picture presented
at the White House to-night The Presi
dent, Secretary J. W. Foster, Attorney
General Miller and Russell Harrison re
ceived the returns in the library, while
Mrs. McKee and Mrs. Russell Harrison
entertained a few friends in the private
part of the house. Naturally they took a
keen interest in the contest, and they were
supplied with information from various
points throughout the evening.
Between 8 and 9 o'clock the returns from
New York commenced to come in with some
degree of reliability, and the President
and those with him began to lose the con
fident air which they exhibited a few hours
previous. There was nothing in the Presi
dent's manner indicating wounded pride or
disappointment at the strength ot the
Democratic tide, but be laughed and
chatted goodnaturedly about the bulletins.
Tracy and Poster Give It Up.
At 11 o'olock Secretary Tracy and Secre
tary of State Foster concluded that they
had heard enough to convince them that
their party was defeated. As the two Sec
retaries were leaving the White House a
rep orter of The Dispatch asked Secre
tary Tracy how be accounted for the defeat
of the President in New York and
Indiana. With an attempt at pleasantry
he replied: "By the want of votes on the
Republican side. He said there was
nothing he could say further that could
throw any light on the subject, as the re
turns speak for themselves.
Secretary Foster could not give any in
formation concerning Indiana because he
has been away from State so long that he
has lost the thread of the political situa
tion there. He was less communicative
than his naval colleague, and advised the
newspaper men who gathered around him
to "go home and go to bed."
The President Calm Under Defeat
President Harrison received the news of
his defeat with his usual composure and
without any indications of disappointment
He was confident of success until . the re
turns from New York State showed that he
was running behind his vote of 1888 in the
same districts. He derived 'some consola
tion irom the fact that Cleveland also
fell off in the same localities. It was, the
returns in the Western States that caused
him and his friends the greatest surprise.
He was not disposed to give up Indians,
although the Democrats insisted, in bulletin
after bulletin, that the State was theirs by
a comfortable majority.
As the returns became more and more
discouraging the members of the Cabinet
who were present concluded it would be
advisable for them to withdraw. Just as
they were about to take their departure
Rev. Dr. Hamlin, pastor of the Church of
the Covenant, where the Presidental family
worships, called and remained with the
President until near midnight

State to-day chose eight Presidental
electors and six Congressmen. Cleveland's
plurality is 19,000. A large vote has been
polled, the Democrats making gains in

New York, Nov. a Special Never
did sky and air come more nobly to the aid
of an election, to make it as a complete ex
pression of the people's will, than did New
York's sky and air to-day. It rained until
a few minutes before the hour for opening
the polls. Then the streets being eleaned
and the air freshened, the clouds broke

It sometimes happens that the efferves
cence of spirits, both natural and alcoholic,
on a fine holiday causes a number of out
breaks and gives the police something to
do, but to-day no one saw drunkenness at
all, although most of the people-were in the
streets. The people all seemed to be in
high good hnmor. Everyone had on his or
her good clothes, and the avenues were
crowded with promenaders.
The polling places were models of good
order. No honest voter was disturbed , ex
cept in a few cases. The deputies seemed
subdued by the good humor and quiet. Dur
ing the afternoon the streets were enlivened
by small bands of boys, most of them in
knickerbockers, prowling about looking
for the materials wherewith to celebrate.
The politics of these predatory youths were
as impartial as their thievings. They made
ready to celebrate, no matter who was
elected. In many instances they showed
themselves to be very sharp, sly and bold.
A Peaceful and Happy Day.
Altogether, it was a peaceful and happy
day for .New York City. The secret ballot
complications puzzled a good many edu
cated no less than ignorant, but everyone
got through all right, and everyone had a
chance to say who and what should rule
him, without interference and in perfect
A very large vote was polled very early
in the day in the First Assembly district.
It was one of the quietest elections ever
seen there. The United States marshals
had nothing whatever to do. In most in
stances they merely hung around the out
side of tbe polling places and smoked
cigars. Davenport's men made a large
number of arrests in the neighborhood of
the Bowery, the region of the cheap lodg
ing houses. Big preparations bad been
made for this purpose, and at some polling
places there were from eight to a dozen
marshals. In a great many instances the
men arrested returned and swore in their
The Day a Remarkably Quiet One.
Bnt in spite of these arrests the day was
remarkably quiet There are usually half
a dozen rows in the neighborhood of Pell,
Doyer and Mulberry streets. There was
only one to-day. That took place in front
of the polls at 9 Chatham square.
Cherry Hill surprised the police. There
never was so quiet an election in' that
usually turbulent locality. The police of
the Oak street station reported not a single
arrest The vote was heavy and early.
In the neighborhood of the Bowery there
were some right lively times. The polling
places were surrounded by Davenport's
men looking for voters from the cheap lodg
ing houses. The arrests were made with
little disturbance, however, for the polls
were all well policed and there was no
clashing of authority. From the Fourth to
the Twelfth districts, inclusive, everything
was reported quiet, the voting early and ar
rests few. There were some few minor dis
turbances in the Eleventh, in the negro
quarters, but nothing of importance.
It was ex-Wieked Gibbs against Polios

Very Pew Arrests Were Made.
Davenport's army of deputies was partic
ularly active in the Fourteenth Assembly
district, but made only one or two breaks.
JaufesB. Keating, the Tammany leader in
the district, made his rounds among his cap
tains before daybreak, and gave them in
structions to give the Federal officers no ex
cuse to be aggressiTe.
In the Fifteenth Assembly district the
boys, after barrels for bonfires, made the
only noise of the day. The voting was slow
and the voters appeared to be unfamiliar
with the ballots and the way to fold them.
There was only one arrest
The fight in the Seventeenth Assembly
district was very bitter. The Republicans
accused Tammany-Hall of sending Senator
Plunkitt and a number of other prominent
politicians out of their own districts to try
to influence the vote of the Seventeenth.
The Democrats, on the other band, said
that the Republicans flooded the 'district
with money, in a trantio effort to defeat
Kerrigan for Assemblyman.
Only a LMttle Cloud of Trouble.
The first trouble in the Eighteenth As
sembly district occurred at 11:30 o'clock in
the morning, at 209 Tenth avenue, the poll
ing place ot the Eleventh election district
The crowd surged in against the election
officials. Captain Devery forced his way
into tbe ballot box and ordered the crowd
to fall back. Tbey did not move.
"I call on every official here, whether
city, State or national, to see that the law
is enforced, and that these people are kept
back," said he.
The crowd fell back and Captain Devery
hunted up Supervisor Jacob Files and
notified him that unless his men aided the
