The Republicans Dazed By
Their Loss of Power.
Their Signal Overthrow Quite
Two More Democratic Congressmen
North Dakota May Contribute One and
Michigan Several More—The States
Associated Press Dispatches.
Chicago, Nov. 7.—At last the returns
from the state of Illinois are sufficiently
complete to announce decisively the re
sult on the state ticket. The Demo
crats have won, and Kdwin s. Wilson,
of Olney, is elected state treasurer by
11,436, and Henry Raab, of Belleville,
superintendent of public instruction, by
36,144. No compilations have been
made yet on the trusteeships of the Uni
versity of Illinois, but the indications
are that the three Democratic nominees
are elected by a slight majority.
Not until today have the Republicans
of Illinois realized the full extent of the
avalan-me which has obliterated their
old-time majority in the state. Fuller
returns today showed that in addition
to the Democratic gains heretofore an
nounced in the congressional districts,
Congressmen Payson and Hill also have
been defeated, and Snow and Stewart,
Democrats, elected. Both Hill and Payson
have telegraphed the Associated Press
conceding their defeat, the former by
650 and the latter by 500 to 700. This
makes the congressional delegation from
Illinois stand fourteen Democrats and
six Republicans. The congressmen
elected are as follows: First, Taylor, R;
Second, McGann, D; Third, Burrow, D;
Fourth, Newberry, D; Fifth, Hopkins,
R; Sixth, Hitt, R; Seventh, Henderson,
R; Eighth, Stewart, D; Ninth, Snow,
D; Tenth, Post, R; Eleventh, Cable,
D; Twelfth, Wilke, D; Thirteenth,
Springer, D; Fourteenth, Scott, D; Fif
teenth, Busey, D; Sixteenth, Fithian,
D; Seventeenth, Lane, D; Eighteenth,
Forman, D; Nineteenth, Williams, D;
Twentieth, Smith, R.
The great delay in arriving at an
authentic conclusion in this state has
been due to the lateness of the returns,
owing to the tremendous amount of
scratching. All the estimates on which
the previous reports were based were
valueless in view of the political tidal
wave which swept over the state, and
which is unprecedented in the history
A Srant.Republican Victory—Pierre Gets
St. Paul, Minn., Nov. 7.—ln South
Dakota the Independents have conceded
the election of the Republican state
ticket, and the latest reports seem to
indicate the election of a Republican
majority in the legislature, insuring the
re-election of Senator Moody. Pierre
has won the permanent capital, by from
8000 to 10,000 majority, although Huron
does not concede the fact. Late today
Chairman Peemilier, of the Democratic
committee, conceded the election of
both the Republican congressmen and
most of the state ticket, but claimed the
governor and enough of the lecislature
to give a majority to the Alliance and
Sioux Falls, S.D., Nov. 7.—The Press
(Rep.) has returns showing that the en
tire Republican state ticket is elected.
Reports from all but two senatorial and
nine representative districts, show that
the Republicans have one majority in
the senate, the house standing sixty-one
Republicans and fifty-three Democrats
and Alliance men. Thirty-one counties
out of fifty-one give Pierre" 7659 majority
for the state capital.
The Republicans Lose Everything Save
One Lone Congressman.
Milwaukee, Wis., Nov. 7.—Official
returns from the First district today
show the elect ion of Babbitt, D, over
Cooper, R. This leaves only one Re
publican congressman in Wisconsin,
Haugen, in the Eighth district, who has
about 1000 majority. The Republicans
suffer a net loss of six congressmen,
besides the legislature, which will prob
ably elect ex-Secretary Vilas to succeed
Senator Spooner, although other candi
dates are springing up. Peck, D, for
governor, has a majority of 30,000.
Honors Divided Between Republicans
and Farmers Alliance.
Kansas City, Nov. 7—The official can
vass of the votes in Kansas has pro
gressed far enough to show that the en
tire Republican state ticket is elected,
with the exception of Kellogg, who is
defeated for re-election as attorney-gen
eral, by Ives, Farmers Alliance. The
Republican majority is placed at about
10,000. The vote on congressmen is not
changed by the official count. The
Kansas delegation stands two Republi
cans and five Farmers Alliance. The
legislature is still believed to be Farmers
The Democratic Candidate for Governor
Omaha, Nov. 7. —Returns from eighty
five out of eighty-nine counties in Ne
braska, give tho following figures for
governor: Richards, R., 69,236; Bovd,
D., 72,325; Powers, Alliance, 71,143.
While the contest is very close, a careful
estimate gives Boyd a plurality of nearly
1000, but indicates the election of the
remainder of the Republican state ticket.
The total vote of the state so far exceeds
by fully 15,000 the presidential vote of
1888, an extraordinary increase for an

Hartford, Conn,, Nov. 7—The offi
cial vote of the state by the first returns
which cast out the prohibition vote in
many towns, shows that Morris has 57
Elurality; with the prohibition vote in,

Later.—An apparent error in some of
the returns gives Merwin, R., for gov
ernor, eighteen additional votes, reduc
ing Morris's apparent plurality to twen

either is elected. The legislature is Re
Governor Merriam Ke-electnd hy a Bare
St. Paul, Nov. 7.—With all but three
counties reported in Minnesota, and
most of them official, the vote for gov
ernor stands: Merriam, R., 82,220; Wil
son, D., 80,66.3; Owen, Alliance, 52,440;
Merriam's plurality, 1557. The returns
from the other counties, and the official
figures from some of the counties already
included, may change this a little, but
not materially. Governor Merriam ran
behind his ticket, and all the rest of the
Republican state ticket is elected, save
auditor, Biermann, I)., with Alliance en
dorsement, securing that place. The
Alliance vote will be increased by later
figures from the filth district, which was
its stronghold. Irs that district these
seems no doubt that Halverson, Alli
ance, is elected to congress by a plural
ity of over 2000. Linde, R., wins over

ence of prominent Republicans is being
held to consider the legislative situation.
Boston, Nov. 7.—A special from
Nashua, N. H., says there is no doubt
that the Republicans will have a special
session of the present legislature in
December. It is now Republican by
thirty-five majority. They will then
officially recognize the new censuß re
turns and admit new members, giving
them a majority in the legislature.

Dcs Moines, Nov. 7.—Returns received
from ninety counties give McFarland
173.179, and Chamberlain 170,543, Mc-
Farland's plurality, 2636. It is esti
mated that the other nine counties will
increase McFarland's plurality to 3901,
a net gain of 10,500 over last year. This
ensures the election of the entire Re
publican state ticket, by about 4000
Only Two Republican Congressmen Creep
Indianapolis, Nov. 7.—Official returns

ning to come in. The Democratic ma
jority will be about 18,000. The only

Associated Press Dispatches.
San Francisco, Nov. 7.—Additional
returns which have been received today,
do not materially alter the result of the
state election as announced yesterday.
Returns have been received from nearly
three-fourths of the precincts in the
state, including all but thirty-nine pre
cincts in San Francisco. The result
shows a plurality of ten thousand for
Markham, R, for governor. Markham
is leading Pond in this city by about 100
votes. The Republicans have elected
their entire state ticket, and in this city
have elected all the municipal and
county officers, except the public ad
ministrator and. one superior judge.
Sanderson, R, for mayor, has a plurality
of 400 only. The places where the re
sult is in doubt, are the first and second
congressional districts. The Republicans
have carried the other four districts.
Blanchard, R., is leading Caminetti, D.,
by 400 in the Second district, with less
than one-third of the precincts to hear
from. Returns have been received from
less than one-half of the precincts in the
First district, and show "that Geary, D.,
is leading Barham, R., by eight votes.
San Francisco Returns,
Returns were received this morning
from three of the forty-two city precincts
believed to be inaccessible on account of
the bulletins having been sealed up in
the official envelopes, which cannot be
opened until Monday. These three pre
cincts increase Markham's vote in the
city to 23,994; Pond's, 23,126. Waite,

Fifteen hundred and twenty precinctb,
including 262 precincts in San Fran
cisco, give Markham, R., for governor,
103,645; Pond, 94,307. This leaves 671
precincts to hear from, many of which
are small mountain precincts. The re
turns present a total of nearly 200,000
votes. The total vote at the presidential
election was 250,000.

close, tbe result will probably not be
known until the total county returns j
can be obtained from the county seats.
Returns from 261 precincts out of a
total of 404, in the Second congres
sional district, give Blanchard, R, 18,
--990; Geary, D, 13,736. The returns

Lexington, Ky., Nov. 7. —A terrible
election-day duel in Estill county, of
which only meager mention was made
in the dispatches Wednesday, turns out
to have been one of the most desperate
encounters ever witnessed in Kentucky.
The men engaged in the affair were Dr.
Lilly, a prominent young physician,
and John Wilson, commissioner of com
mon schools in Estill county. Lilly was
a Republican and Wilson a Democrat.
Lilly brought up a negro to the
polls to vote, whom Wilson challenged.
The judges sided with Wilson, and the
negro was rejected. This fired up Lilly
and hot words ensued, resulting in the
drawing of pistols by both men. Lilly
got his weapon out readily, while Wil
■on's hung in Lii pocket and was acci
dentally discharged before he could level
it. In the meantime he received two
balls from his antagonist, both lodging
near the heart. The wounds, however,
were not immediately fatal, and the
dreadful combat was continued. Wilson
got his weapon free and fired two shots,
one of which strck Lilly near the heart,
About this time Wilson's brother in
terfered, and succeeded in wresting
Lilly's weapon from his hands. Nothing
daunted him, however, and almost in
the throes of death, he drew his knife
and made several f ital stabs
in his enemy's body. Both fell
to the ground, but the terrible
duel was not over. With his last eb
bing strength, Wilson raised up ar.d
fired the last load in hie pistol at Grant
Lilly, the brother of Dr. Lilly, who had
appeared on the scene, inflicting a fatal
wound. Not satisfied with this, Wilson
crawled over to where his antagonist
had fallen and buried the hammer of his
pistol in his head. Lilly died in a few
minutes, while Wilson" lingered until

Every House In a Village Burned tfjj
Petersburg, Ind., Nov. 7. —A terrible
conflagration occurred at Winslow, Pike
county, this morning. The whole town
is wiped out of existence. The houses
were all frame structures, and the fire
spread rapidly, and so fiercely that all
the efforts of the people to extinguish it
proved unavailing. Not a bouse
is left standing, and four hundred
persons are left homeless. There is no
fire department, and no provision was
made for the sudden coming of such a
calamity. How the fire originated baa
not been ascertained, but it is supposed
to have been caused by a defective flue.
