The Stale board of canvassers motj
in Richmond Mouday and canvassed
tlie returns for Presidential electors
nnd Congressmen. Tho News pub?
lished tho vote by Congressional
districts somo timo since. Tho offi?
cial summary give the following fig?
ures, taking the highest ou each
ticket: Cleveland, 163,977; Harrison,
113.25r>; Weaver, 12.274; Rid Well,
2,73G; Cleveland's plurality over Har?
rison, 50,722; Cleveland's majority,
NARROW MARGIN IN CALI?
The official vote of all tho counties
in California with the exception of
San Francisco, give Harrison a plur?
ality of 6,4.22. The returns from all
but nine precincts in San Francisco
give Cleveland a plurality in the city
and county of 0,112. A number of
irregularities in tho returns from the
tho remaining precincts in the city
may delay tho canvass for a few days
The figures given from outside coun
ties are based upon tho average vole
given for Republican and Democratic
electors. Tho plurality is so narrow,
and in view of the fact that the vote
for electors varies, it is possible that
when tho otlicinl vole has boon com?
pleted upon individual electors the
electoral vote will bo divided be
bween Harrison and Cleveland.

DEATH OF^RE^TdENT H AR
Rev. John W. Soott, the father-in
law of President Harrison, died at
?1:10 Tuesday afternoon. Dr. Soott
was born January 22, 1800, in Dear?
er county, Pn. Upon reaching man?
hood lie became a minister of the
Preabytei inn chinch and tilled sovor
al pulpits acceptably, but in a few
years his voice failed and ho was
forced to give up Ida vocation. Dur
ing the time General Harrison was a
United States Senator, Dr, Scott was
appointed to a clerkship in the Pen
sion oilice, and he held this position
until his son-iii law became President.
Ho resigned then, nnd moved to tho
"White House, where he had resided.
