Associated Press Dispatches.
San Francisco, Nov. 6. —Late this af
ternoon complete returns had been re
ceived from more than one-half the
precincts in California, outside of San
Francisco, and from about two-thirds of
the precincts in this city. These returns
give Markham, R, for governor, more
than 10,000 plurality over Pond, D.
They also show that the Republicans
have carried the entire state ticket by a
generally similar plurality. The entire
Republican ticket in this city, with the
exception of one minor office, is un
doubtedly elected by pluralities ranging
from a few hundred to four
thousand. The returns from the pre
cincts heard from, give Sanderson, R,
for mayor, a plurality of 2500 over
O'Donnell,!. There seems to be no doubt
that tha Republicans have elected five
out of the six congressmen in the state,
and indications are that the entire con
gressional delegation will be Republi
can, though the contest in the
first district is close. Returns from
a little less than one-half the
precincts in the first district show
that Barham, R, is leading by 116 votes.
The legislature, which will elect a
United states senator, will have a large
Republican majority in both branches.
Indications are that tbe Democrats have
elected but three of the twenty assem
blymen in this city, and that the tJve
senators from San Francisco will be all

WHAT THEY SAY.
Some Opinions as to What Caused the
Washington, Nov. 6. —Senator Gor
ham in an interview here today said the
victory of the Democracy was an ex
pression of the people against radical
measures, such as the Republicans had
brought forth during this congress. The
senator was asked if he thought the vic
tory would be lasting; if it would gi.'e
the Democrats the next president. "It
depends upon their course; if they are
cautious and conservative they may ex
pect a long lease of power."
Senator Dolpli's Theory.
Senator Dolph, in explanation of the
result of the election, said today it was
an "off" years, and the friends of the
tariff were inactive, while those on the
other side were working with all their
might. "The manufacturers," he said,
"got what they wanted when tbe Mc-
Kinley bill was passed, and they did
nokcare uaj more about it. The result
would have been different if the passage
of the bill had not been delayed until
just before election. Artificial increase
in prices, made in some commodities
wit'iout the slightest reason, also had
McKinley's Only Solace.
Canton, Ohio, Nov. 6.—McKinley
said this afternoon to an Associated Press
reporter, that while conceding his prob
able defeat by a small majority, he is
greatly satisfied with the result. He
said tiie issue was between ptotective
tariff and tariff for revenue only,
clear and distinct, and nothing
else entered into the canvass. His bill
was the center of assault. The result he
regards as a signal victory. The majority
of over 2900 Democratic in this district
last year was reduced to about 200 this
year. He carried his own ward and city
and county by large majorities, showing
What John Sherman Says.
New York, Nov. 6. —Senator Sherman,
in an interview tonight, said Major Mc-
Kinley told him before the election that
he did not expect to succeed, with such
odds against him. The senator added :
"But I.shall not be surprised if it
him governor of Ohio next year."
I to_ the general result of the
congressional elections, Sherman paid:
"I have seen such convulsions a dozen
times or more, but they have had no
permanent effect. Ido not regard the
present situation with apprehension.
The country will be wiser next year and
better able to pass upon the issues."
The Thunderer's Opinion.
London, Nov. 6. —The Times, com
menting upon the results of the elections
in the United States, says it will not be
easy for the Democrats to find a more
able presidential candidate than Mr.
Quay Wants to Saw Wood.
Pittsburg, Nov. 6.—Senator Quay
passed through the city last night on
his way to Florida. In reply to the
query, "To what do you attribute the
result of the election?" he said: "To a
lack of votes. It looks to me as though
the best thing to do just now is to saw
wood. The returns indicate that the
farmers and laborers had done the busi
ness for us in this state."

Associated Press DisDatches.
Indianapolis, Nov. 6. —Congressman
Bynum, in an interview tonight, an
nounced his candidacy for speaker of
the next house. His majority is 450(K
the largest he ever received, and nearly
three times as large as his majority two
years ago. He thinks the propriety of
putting a northern and western man in
the chair will be recognized by the
majority of the Democrats, and that his
chances are excellent.
St Louis, Nov. 6. — Congressman
Hatch tonight informed a Republic re
porter that he was a candidate for
speaker of tho next house. A dispatch
from Springfield says Congressman
Springer also is an active candidate.
Chicago, Nov. 6. —The Chicago News
(Ir.dept.) makes a forecast of the make
up of the Fifty-second congress. Count
ing the Farmers' Alliance men with tbe
Democrats, it shows a total of OS) Repub
licans, 223 Democrats, a Democratic ma
jority of 188.
Ingalls Doomed to Have His Head
Kansas City, Nov. (1. —Returns re
ceived today from Kansas do not change
the situation materially. Theonly posi
tion changed is the certain election of
Broderick, R, over Moonlight, D, in the
first congressional district. The state
ticket is still in doubt, with the chances
favoring the Farmers Alliance.
The estimate of tho result of the
legislature of Kansas gives the follow
ing : Republicans, 75 ; anti-Republicans,
including Farmers Alliance and Demo
crats, !)0. Of the seventy-five Repub
licans about fifteen senators have
pledged themselves to vote according to
the will of the people of their districts as
expressed in their vote for representa
tives. Nine of these districts returned
Alliance men. To secure Ingalls re-elec
tion he must secure eighty-four votes.
The legislature is now apparently
against him by fifteen votes at least,
and possibly 24.
Kansas City, Nov. 6. — Chairman
Buchanan of the Kansas Republican
state central committee, telegraphed the
Associated Press that Humphrey, R, is
elected governor. All but eighteen
counties give a plurality of 4989. These
eighteen counties have a total vote of
only 30,000, and they may be counted
upon to increase his plurality, Buchanan
General Palmer's Election to the United
States Senate Assured.
Springfield, Nov. (i. —General Palmer
this evening received a telegram from
Carthage, saying Edwards and Myers,
two Democrats, are shown by the official
count to have been elected to the legis
lature. General Palmer on reading the
dispatch said : This makes 103 Demo
crats on joint ballot, a majority of one.
The 103, the general explained, included
the F. M. B. A. men, all three of whom,
he claimed, were pledged to his support
on the ballot for Unite! states senator.
Chicago, Nov. 6.—The Republicans
carried Cook county, in which Chicago
is located, for the head of their ticket.
With all the precincts heard from (un
officially) the figures give Gilbert, R, for
sheriff, 824 plurality over Lawler, D.
Kern, Democratic candidate for county
treasurer, is victorious, however, by
3305 plurality. Kern is a German and
made gains in the districts where the
Lutheran vote is strong.
Eighty-four counties of Illinois, in
cluding Cook, out of a total of 102, give
Amberg, R, for state treasurer a plu
rality of 2811, over Wilson, D. Raab,
D, for state superintendent of public
instruction, has a plurality of 31,728,
over Edwards, R. Raab carried by a
heavy majority, not only Cook county,
but also had a long lead "throughout the
state, generally. Harrison's majority
in the state in l"888 was 22,000.
Pattlson's Plurality is 10,033, a Oaln of
r.0,.-.H 1 in Two Years.
Philadelphia, Nov. 8. —Complete re
turns from every county foot up a plur
ality for Pattison, (Dem.) for governorof
10,933, a Democratic gain, compared
with 1888, of 59,584. Though Dela
mater, the Republican candidate for
governor, is thus defeated, all his col
leagues on the state ticket are elected
by a decisive majority.
Alex K. Craig, D, "is elected to con
gress in the Twenty-fourth district, de
feating Andrew J. Stewart by over 1000
votes. This district in 188S gave Ray,
R, 4338 majority. Complete figures
now received from every district in the
state show that the new delegation will
stand seventeen Republicans and
eleven Democrats, a Democratic gain of
The Democratic Candidate for Governor
In the Lead.
Omaha, Neb., Nov. 6. —Seventy-one
counties in this state give the following
vote for governor: Boyd, D, 65,143;
Richards, R, 61,040; Powers, A, 59,594.
There are eighteen counties yet to hear
from. These gave a vote for Harrison
two years ago of 14,065; Cleveland, 8495.
With exception of Saline and Clay, these
counties are all located in the remote
western section of the state, and it is
doubtful whether they will poll as full a
vote ;is in the last presidential election.
A fair estimate of the total vote of the
counties would be 18,000. It is very
difficult to make a reliable forecast i s to
what these counties have done this ,'ear
for either of the three gubernatorial < an
didates. The total vote of the state
will be from 200,000 to 210,000, and the
candidate who receives 70,000 votes is
certain of election. Bovd is now in the
lead, but still lacks 4858 of that number.
The chances are that his vote will ex
ceed 70,000, because the Alliance in the
western part of the state is chiefly made
up of Republicans.
Most of the Republican state ticket
below governor is elected. The Farm
ers' Alliance have the legislature, two
congressmen, and most of the county
Not a single Ui(publican Congressman
Sr. Paul, Nov. 6.—Official and unof
ficial, but complete and estimated returns
from all but seven counties of the state,
give Merriam, R., 83,658; Wilson, D.,
76,343; plurality for Merriam, 7310. The
remaining counties are expected to cut
this plurality down. The Republican
committee is claiming Merriam's elec
tion by over 1000, while the Democratic
committee's claim is 600 for Wilson.
Halverson (Farmers' Alliance) is proba
bly elected to congress in the Fifth dis
trict, over Comstock, R., and Whitman,
D. In the Second district, General
Baker (Alliance with Democraticendorst -
ment), claims election over Lind, R. If
this proves to be the case, the next con
gressional delegation from this state will
be three Democrats and two Alliance.
Large Democratic Gains on the State
Der Moines, la., Nov. 6. —Complete
unofficial returns from seventy-four
counties give McFarland, R., for secre
tary of state, 146,607 ; Chamberlain, D.,
146,152, a gain of 7783 over last year's
vote. The twenty counties unreported
gave Hutchinson.'R., for governor, 655
plurality in 1889. This indicates the
election of McFarland by 3600 plurality,
and the remainder of the Republican
state ticket by a plurality somewhat
The latest congressional returns elect
Henderson, R, in the Third district,
Flick in lhe Eighth. The state delega
tion to congress will stand six Repub
licans, five Democrats.
The Democrats Scoop a Part of the State
Denver, Nov. 6. —Unofficial returns
from the state give the following majori
ties: Townsend, R., 6385: Routt, R.,
3044. The Republicans will elect the
remainder of the state ticket, with the
exception of the treasurer, superintend
ent of public instruction and attorney
general. The legislature on joint ballot
will stand: Republicans, 49; Democrats,
26; a Democratic gain of 14. This in
sures the re-election of Teller to the
United states senate.
The Domocrats Have the Legislature on
New York. Nov. 6. —Associated Press
reports show the election of 68 Demo
cratic assemblymen in New York
and 70 Republicans. The for
mer will have on joint ballot 81
votes against the letter's 76, which in
sures the election of a Democratic suc
cessor to Senator Evarts. The Demo

Portland, Ore., Nov. 6. —Complete
and incomplete returns from all but
three counties in the state of Washing
ton, giye Wilson, R, for congress, 13,050;
Carroll, I), 13,021. As the vote through
out the state was light, this is thought
to be considerably more than one-half
the total vote. Wilson's majority will
probably be between 7000 and 8000. In
1889, Wilson's majority was 9947. The
legislaturn now stands: Senate—Re

the house, and the Democrats claim
from two to sixteen.
An Alliance Victory Both as to Governor
Chicago, Nov. 6. —A special from Min
neapolis says : The latest returns from
South Dakota show, that the result is an
Alliance victory, and that Loucas is
elected governor. The legislature will
also be Alliance, thus insuring the defeat
of Senator Moody.
The Democratic Majority Now Foots Up
Indianapolis, Nov. 6. —Returns from
half the townships of the state indicate
a Democratic majority of 20,000. The
Democrats elect eleven out of thirteen
congressmen. The legislature is Demo

Libel—Lieutenant Tronp and
Associated Press Dispatches.
New York, Nov. 6. —H. M. Stanley
arrived on the steamer Teutonic this
morning, and was met by his manager,
Major Pond, with a party. Stanley was
asked to say something about the stand
the London papers have taken since Mr.
Stanley's departure from England. "I
do not wish to say much about it, and
have not read the London papers care
fully enough to express an opinion, and
do not wish to stir the matter up unless
lam forced to do so. The log books of
the rear guard were signed day by day
by the officers of the day—Barttelot,
Barre or Kingston—while in camp, to
gether with the official reports of the
officers. I am justified by all in my
censure of the rear guard, which was
the cause of the attack made on me."
With Stanley were his wife, her
mother, Mrs. Tennant, Hamilton Aide,
a dramatist who will act as historian of
the party, and Lieutenant Mounteney
Jephson, a favorite of Stanley's.
In]|another interview, referring to
Bartelot's diaries and LieutenantTroup's
book, Stanley repeated what he had
already said as to the condition of the
rear guard. When he reached Lake
Albert Nyanza he wrote at once to the
relief committee, telling them the
rear column was wrecked by the neglect
of its officers and their indifference to
the interests of the expedition. Refer
ring to Troup, Stanley said when he got
to Zanzibar one of the first things he
found was a long letter from Troup vio
lently abusing Bartelot. "I never
answered this letter," said Stanley,
"because it needed a personal interview,
as there were many questions I found it
necessary to ask himself, the principal
one being why he and others preferred to
remain and starve at Yambuya instead
of moving on; why they Btaid until so
many of their men died from disease or
had been killed. I never could get a
satisfactory answer from Bonner, and
hoped to get one from Troup.

and answered that it he would revise it
I would publish it, as it contained many
things unfit for publication. He was so
obstinate that he would not revise it,
and sent it back, demanding that I
should publish it. I did not; then
Troup wrote me threatening letters,
saying I would have to be prepared to
meet such measures as he might see fit
to employ to vindicate himself. I wrote
him saying if he thought he was
maligned unjustly, to go ahead. I could
see many things connected with the rear

public, but if he wished to publish
everything, he could do so.

that I was justified in m}' censure of the

Stanley this evening received several
reporters at his hotel, and talked at

he said, was the major's violent temper.
As soon as he reached camp from Nyanza

first person that refused to stop the
noise, and taking a revolver went out.

who was singing, and men dramming.

struck and kicked her. Her husband,
