Virginia Holds Her Place in the Democratic
Column of States by Forty
Thousand Votes.
COLONEL HOGE MAKES A POOR SHOW
rolled a Small Vote Where He Was Expected
by His Republican Friends to Do-Much,
and Democrats Are Jubilant.
EASTERN-COUNTIES CAME UP HANDSOMELY
Captain R. S. Parts Defeated for the House and Col. Catlett for the Senato.
The Fusionista Win in Norfolk County and the Trehy Faction in Nor?
folk City?The Democrats Jubilant Over Victories in Southwest.
Republicans Gain About 20 Members of the Legislature.
The Democrats have carried the State
by probably 40.000 majority for Montague,
Willard and Andersen.
All the returns indicate that thc Dem?
ocrats have, done better, even than they
expected. They not only elect their
State ticket, but will have fully four
Jifths of the Legislature.
Thc early returns indicate that the
.Republicans have not elected more than
I wont y of the members of the General
Assembly.
GOOD MEN DEFEATED.
It looks as if Captain R. S. Parks is
defeated for thc House in Page and
Rappahannock. He is one of the most
distinguished members of that body and
has served several terms. He is the
member of thc Constitutional Convention
from his county.
Major John T. Cowan appears to be de?
feated in Montgomery county, by Mr.
C. A. Heermtnf?, a Republican lawyer, of
?considerable reputation.
Colonel Robert Catlett is probably de?
feated in the Lexington district for the
State Senate by Mr. George ?. Rever?
comb. his Republican opponent, but later
?returns may change the result.
FUSIONISTS WIN.
G,?? Norfolk county, where there has
been a hot factional light, it looks as u
Mr. Cromwell has defeated Mr. Coleman.
Thc Democrats ?did; much better than
? they expected west of the Blue Ridge
Mountains, and they surpassed their ex?
pectations in thc eastern portion ot the
State.
The ?,-ote was nowhere very heavy. Ther;
was no disorder anywhere to amount to
very much.
Tho Republicans seem to have elect-id
their nominees in Rockingham and in
Rockbridge, and they have defeated Mr.
? Josiah Stickiey in Shenandoah.
MR. EDWARDS RETURXED.
The returns from Hanover and King
William indicate that the result is close
between Mr. Edwards (Dem.) and Mr.
Mitchell (Ind. Rep.) for floater delegate.
The result in the House district-em?
bracing Bath. Allegheny and Highland
seems to be in doubt, with chances favor?
ing Judge Moore, tlie Democratic nomi?
nee.
In Norfolk city the Trehy l'action
easily won out and? elected Messrs. "Wood?
ward and Whitehead to the House.
REPUBLICAN VOTE
The Republicans did not poll the vote
they expected in the Ninth District.
Hogo's canvass there seems to have fallen
rfint of results.
It looks as if Dr. A. B. Fttzpatrick has
been beaten iti Nelson by Mr. Goodwin,
Independent Rep?blica ?.

This is the rctntlt oC the election held
in Richmond yesterday. >ir. Montaguels;
majority over Colonel Hoge Is about fif?

Colonel Il?ge'S canvass hen? was a per?
fect failure. His followers (if he had
any) took no interest, either in-their
erstwhile "strongi-old of Jackson Ward
or eisewhere. The Democratic vote Itere,

ALI i SWEPT THE DECK.
The election here was for Slate offi?
cers, two Senators and live. House mem?

hy majorities ranging close to that of Mt*.
p.b/tjvtagi!.?- ,'over Co,'onel .-Kegc?. Tickets
ifor amending the Constitution in regard
to the oyster question -were at the polling
places, but few voters paid any atten?
tion to them. '
Tho polls -closed at 5:C? o'clock P. M.,
and the judges and eler^y did their count?
ing in ,a? hurry. First Madison was the
first pr?cin,'2t ?o report, and the others
passed--in rapidly, first Clay being- the
la*?5t. All ."?veje in by 0 o'clock.
The bar-.roo.--ns were all, closed until
sundown, and there was little or no drink?
ing around tho polls. Never did an elec?
tion day in ?Richmond seetn more quiet
People went about their business as
if there was no voting in progress, and
so quiet did it appear at some of the
precincts that it was with some difficulty
that the polling places in some parts of
the city were discovered by a passer-by.
-Tlie day being- cool, most of the voting
\vas done indoors, and few booths were
seen on tire streets to indicate where
the voting was being done.
LEADERS HAPPY.
Chairman Doherty has done faithful
work, and he was happy last night, as
he had a. riebt io be.
Chairman Ellyson was likewise in high
feather over the splendid result in tlie
State, lie was warmly congratulated,
and he showed that he was justly proud
of the line victory to so much of the
credit of which he himself is entitled.
Mr. Montague returned from Danville
last night and received the returns at
his home, lie expressed himself as highly
gratified at. the result as far as it had
been reported, and was especially jubi?
lant over the way lite Southwest held up
iter end in the race. The young Gov?
ernor-elect was warmly congratulated on
all hauls last night, tiie telephone wire
tn his residence being kept hot witli
messages on this line. A number of Mr.
Montague's close political friends re?
ceived the election bulletins with him at
his home last night, and they were, like
him;-?happy over the result.

OF THE RETURNS

Which Ga\~e Them Out.
BIG CROWD GATHERED EARLY*
Many Lnsty Cheer? Went Up When Monta
Site's Big Majorities in Richmond and
Elsewhere Were Made Known.
Some of the Features of the
. Evening, and How-.Jhey
Were Received.
Three pretty maidens were the victims J
of a large and influential jolly last night, j
Somebody told them Hampton Hoge wtis j
leading the ticket in a spirited race for I
thi linish, aud that Montague, the Red
Fox candidate for the gubernatorial chair, j
couldn't possibly catch up. These three ?
little maidens grew excited, and with
flushed cheeks bolted for The Times of
licc-, tho acknowledged headquarters in
Virginia for election returns.
"Do tell us." .they, cried with flushed
cheeks and half out of breath, "how about
the election? Is Montague beaten? The
reports up our way say Hoge Is elected
i and Montague gives up the fight. Is it
so?"
"Not on your tin-type," growled a mat?
ter-of-fact newspaper man. busy with a
mass of election returns, an avalanche of
j bulletins from hither, thither and yon.
! and a wilderness of specials accumulated
from places on tho map and other points
| ignored through lack of population.
Then the three little maidens heaved
! three sighs of relief, smiled gayly with a
| merry three-by-four sunburst each, and
were lost in a frivolous chatter down the
elevator shaft. They were serenely con
; tent over the result. Like Frederick the
Great, who hated' three religious sects
I without knowing? wherein they differed,
the trio of maidens had it in for Hampton
1 loge. The assurance of his defeat was a
welcome bit of news.

Tammany Defeated in Greater New York
.by Majority Ranging From Thirty
to Forty Thousand.
DEMOCRATIC GAIN IN MARYLAND
Ohio Elects Nash, Republican Go\rernor,by Reduced
Majority Over Kilbourne, Nominee of
Democratic Party.
REPUBLICAN VICTORIES IN OTHER STATES
Democrats Carry Kentucky and Mississippi and Make Inroads Upoa
Pluralities of Their Opponents in Other States?Colorado -in
Doubtful Column, Both Sides Claiming It?General
Result Something of a Stand-Off.
Tita result of the battle of the ballots
throughout the country yesterday, while
in the nature of a stand-off, is regarded
as being slightly more favorable to? the
Republicans. Seth Low. the Fusion can?
didate, was elected Gver Edward M. Shep?
herd, the Tammany candidate by a plu?
rality of from 30,00?) to 40,0000, while the
whole Fusion ticket, with few exceptions,
was elected.
The latest returns from Maryland Indi?
cate that the result in Baltimore city is j
very close, while the Democrats made j
gains ln the State.
In Ohio the Republicans elected Nash i
Governor over Kllbourne, the Democratic
norrinee, by a. majority considerably re?
duced from, that of 1S90.
The vote in Pennsylvania was light,
but the Republican candidates were elec
ed. though by reduced majorities.?,.
The ; pemocirttts , c-rn*ried _ Kcntncfey^l
where Interest was centered in the legis?
lative contests; on which hung the elec?
tion of a United States Senator. The Re?
publicans carried New Jersey. Iowa, Ne?
braska, Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
The Democrats, of course, carried Mis?
sissippi.
Tho vote in many place was light, and
the day passed off quietly and without
?striking incidents. In New York city quite
a number of arrests were made, but few
cf the cases were of serious enough
nature to be held by the magistrate.
There w,t?re a number of tights at the
polls, but thej^'did not result in arty way
seriously. Mr! Croker took the defeat of
Tarrmnny after a rule of seventeen
years quite philosophically, and attributed
it largely to a desire for a change on the
part of the people. Tammany, he hopes,
will be improved by the defeat.
Mr. Low was greatly gratified at the ;
result, and was generous in attributing !
the success of his ticket to the aid of the j
newspapers. On tho whole both sides are
fairly well satisfied with the day's re- j
suits, the Republicans because of vic?
tories in mest of the places-, and the Dem?
ocrats are gratif.ed at having made in?
roads upon the pluralities of their oppon?
ent*.
UNWONTED QUIET.
Election in New York Passed Off Quietly
Few Prisoners Held.
(By Associated Gp-ss.)
NEW YORK. Nov. ?.?Seth Low. former
president of Columbia L'niversity and
fcur years ago the Citizens' I'nion candi?
date for thc first mayor of Greater New
York, was elected to-day the second
mayor of Greater New York by a plurality
ranging? anywhere from .''0.000 to 40,000,
defeating Edward M. Shepherd, of Brook?
lyn, the Democratic nominee.
The campaign was an exciting one. ar.d
the vote, though somewhat less than thc
Presidential election a year ago, tras the ?
largest ever polled in a municipal contest
iu this country.
Ir: addition to the canvass for mayor,
public interest largely centered in the
nomination by the Fusionists of "William
Jerome for district attorney, and Mayor
Robert ?. "Van "Wyck by the "Democrats for
justice of the Supreme Court, voted for
only in the territory contained in New
York county. Returns received up to It
P. M.' indicate that Jerome had been
elected by a comfortable plurality and!
that Mayor Van "Wyck had been defeated,.
thi latter ?-Tinning- behind his ticket from
15,000 to 20,000.
Returns also indicate the complete tri?
umph of the Greater Xew York Fusion
ticket. Charles Vincent. Fornea, the nomi- !
nee of. the. Citizens' Union and the Repub?
licans for president of the Board of Alder?
men; de-fir-stin??*: George M." Van Hocsen, the
Democratic-liomlnee.
E. M. Grout, for the past four years?
Democratic president of the Borough of ?
Brooklyn, now tho Fusionist nominee for
comptroller, also defeated W. W. Ladi.
Jr., Democrat.
NEW YORK. Xov. 5.?After several
weeks' of the hottest campaign ?ghtinfj
ever witnessed in th!.?? city over a muni?
cipal election, the day when the ballocs
were cast passed with unwonted quiet, j
considering the high feeling which had I
previously been " exhibited. There were
a few fights at ?rue polls among indi?
viduals, but. none of a rrerious nature, ,
and out of ihe'scores of arrests made?? ?
and most of these were on charges of I
a technical character?but few prisoners I
were held by the magistrates.
The great fciture of the voting ?aa
the early casting of- ballot?. This ap?
plied to the brown storie, as to the tene?
ment house district??. There was a driz?
zling rain up to D o'clock, hut after that '
hour there was nothing to keep even
the most fastidious voter from the polls.
The practical use of a voting machine
was demonstrated! in the Figbieenth, th<?
First Assembly District. Brooklyn, a ? id)
the result was known at 5:25 in the after?
noon, immediately after the poll was
closed. Xo difficulty was experienced ?a
recording the vote, and in many In?
stances p??? cast their votes in less than
three seconds.
An Incident which attracted attention
in Xew York city was tho refusal of thar
election judges in. one district to allow
one voter to cast his ballot because ha
had made a bet of a box of cigars on the?
result of the election.
Richard Croker received the returns in
what is known'a;?, the private room off
Tammany l?a!!.,- Tho loader was sur?
rounded by a trotad ?G men long promi?
nent in the organisation, among then??
John F. Carroll, deputy leader; Mayor
Van Wyck. Corporation Counsel Whalen,
