Uzw York, Nov. 8. Harrison has un
OQbtedly carried New York State with a
3lcrality of nearly 10.000 not more. Thit
s conceded by the Times, the Star and the
The Evening World, in a late extra,
-Luetes Chairman Brice of the Democratic
National Committee as having said: "ffi
concede nothing, and from latest return
there is a fair indication that Cleveland
has carried New York State," and con
tinucs: This is what they say at National
Democratic headquarters, and it was given
outasthcofiicia. utterance of the National
Committee to the crowd of anxious visitors
who thronged the parlors yesterday morn
ing in earch of the latest news. The
statement is based upon the fact that the
corrected returns from the interior coun-
ties of the State show a large cutting
down of the earlier Harrison gains and
many of the countie-. whTe pluralities
Shad already been given purporting to be
fall are still found to be incomplete.
Especially in this tr;ie, it is claimed, in
Kings Comity where, it is said, there will
be a nght before the count is completed.
When it was learned that Illinois and

Colo el Quay said: I can't say any
thing till it is all over. Of course Harri

a Kings County to steal the State, but
t&ey can't do it."
Iwdiakapolis, Itid., Not. 8 At 10:30
fast evening the Democratic committea
uraoms were deserted. The janitor had full

the Associated Frees correspondent
pleasantly and, in answer to the sug
gestion that he might have something te
soy regarding the political situation in the
State, said: "The indications are that the
Republican Electors have carried the
State, but the official count may show

Topeka, Can., Nov. 7. The vote has
been very large in this city, and can ni
be counted beforo this evening. One Sen
ator and three Representatives haTe beea
elected by the Republicans in this county
as well as all others ou the ticket.
Reports received at Republican head
quarters show nil seven members of Con
gress have been elected by good majori
ties. Turner, of the Sixth district, proba
bly leading. Judge Martin does uot claim
any thing for any portion of the Demo
cratic ticket. The Union Labor vote wa
not as large as anticipated. From roportje
received Humphrey will have a majority
of 25,000, all the State ticket keeping u
with those figure.
Partial returns from yesterday's electioi
in Wyandotte County indicate a Demo
eratic majority of 200 vote ou the Na
tional, State and Congressional tickets,
aud a somewhat heavier vote for the can
didates on the county ticket. Throughout
the county the fight was between Billr
Buchan and Fred Hutch in g for the Stat
Senate, and it was the most bitter fight
ever made in the county. At 2:) this
morning the Democrats claimed the elec
tion of Hutchiugs by a majority of 40C,
which U not accepted by Republicans.
The election at Leavenworth passed o
very quietly. The entire Democratic
county ticket, excepting Thomas P. Fen
Ion for the Legislature, was elected. I
his district the Union Labor candidate for
the position drew largely from the Demo
cratic vote, thus electing J. F. Legate,
and Ed. Carroll, for the State Senate, re
ceives a majority over Fortesque.
An unuMiaily large vote was polled at
Wichita. Harry Hill, Democratic candi

lican gains that indicate a Republican
plurality of 3-1.000 for Harrison. The State
ticket is but little behind and tho Railroad
Commissioners are not scratched as badly
as was supposed. Tho Republican candi
dates will all be elected. Republicans
have elected every Congressman but one
by sweeping majorities. Weaver and
Anderson, two Independents in the last
Congress, are both defeated by large
majorities. The only Democratic Con
gressman elected is Hayes in the Second
