REPUBLICAN ASSURANCES.
(Special DUpui' ti to The Tribune.)
ST. PAUL,, Nov. 4.—Later returns do,not
materially change the figures which wore
telegraphed yesterday. There seemed at
first scarcely a doubt but that the repub­
licans had swept the field on both presi­
dential and congressional candidates but
the latter is somewhat in doubt, although
the next congress is claimed by the re­
publicans by eleven majority and the
house by one. The democratic national
committe, however, claim those by good
working majority omitting figures.
The Pioneer-Presf table this morning
divides the house as follows:—The Na­
tionals being counted according to their
antecedents:—

ILLISO^.
REPUBLICAN GAINS.
CHICAGO, Nov. 3.—Cook county gives
Garfield 10,740 majority and the state
gives him about 45,000. Returns from
449 towns and precincts in Illinois out­
side of the city, show net republican
gains of 4,403. These later returns have
been from democratic counties, and show
greater democratic gains relatively than
in the first counties heard from, but not
enough to change materially jjrevious es­
timates.
HEVADA.
DEMOCRATIC.
VIRGINIA CITY, Nev., Nov. 3.—There
seems to be a radical change in the vote.
Cities heretofore republican have gone
democratic and it is very probablo that
the democrats have carried everything.

NEW OKLKANH, La., Nov. 3.—Hancock's

ST. PAUL,' Nov 3.—Incomplete returns
from St. Paul indicate that Hancock has

CONFIRMED.
WASHINGTON, Nov 5.—Last night's dis
patches sustain previous ones fully in
the general results.. There are some
changes in the returns previously tele­
graphed, but the situation is virtually ij.ip

SOUTHERN* COMMENTS.
The comments of the various Southern
newspapers are generally unanimous in
attributing the defeat to Kelly and the
Wifac ,T\!'5T

Mllml
blundering of the national committer.
The Vourier-Jonrudl calls it a defeat of
politicians and not of the party. A series
of accidents and mistakes followed by the
revolt of Keily the obdurancy-- of Hen­
dricks the nomination of Landers and
ruling ol Indiana supreme court and
nomination of English, all combiijed with
silly attacks on Garfield's character, to
cause the defeat. Ti.e Journal adds ihat
it is evident he republicsns eun elect any
ticket they put in the yield, but the pres­
ent alignant
parties
cannot continue, lhe
Richmond State .says the democrats are
beaten, perhaps
NEVER TO RISE AGAIN.
The Memphis Acahinrhv says the dem­
ocrats made buf feeble efforts to convince
voters a change was necessary and ex­
pended all foice iu assailing the personal
character of Garfield. The low tone giv­
en the canvass by the seiection ot Bar
num, as chairman, was a blunder. I he
X'esult- of the election will be tlie dissolu­
tion of two solid sections now arrayed
against each other. The Memphis Appeal
stys the de iK)crats suflered a Waterloo
defeat and the solid fcoulh stands atone
ior democratic principles anil ascribes the
result to the appeal of the lepnbhcans to
the sectional feeling,
•GARFIELD'S CABINET
Rumors about the formation of Gen.
Garfield's cabinet are already springing
up. A rumor says that Conk ling will de­
mand the postmaster-generalship lor
Thos. C. Plat!, of New York.
CONGRESSIONAL CHANGES.
There are some changes in congressional
elections, but they do not wipe out the
republican majoiity. The majority will
be small, but there is no reason tor. lhe
belief that it will not be large enough to
place the organization in the hands of the
republican party. The New England
delegation has been affected but little.
Republican districts have liely {heir o» u'

and it is the belief that one of the demo­
crats, Moore, of Massachusetts, will bo
dislodged. The net republican loss .in
the Middle States is two, four liaviug
been lost in New York and Indiana and
two gained in Pennsylvania. In Califor­
nia the republicans lose the first district-,,
but in this respect the delegation is un­
changed. The Colorado, Maryland and
Nebraska delegations are politically the
same, but the Newula reproser.talive will.
i):f a democrat. In Alabama the defeat
of Lowe. greenbacUer, makes the: delega­
tion solidly democratic. The contest
seems close in the first Georgia district.
The upheaval in Virginia and Tennessee
has unseated one democrat in the first
named stale and two in the latter, and
their .ce:" wiii be held by lepnbiic.ins.
In Louisiana 1
he democratic lines hav
been broken.
ACKLEN WILL YL%Li
to a republican. 1
here arc indications
that the solid delegaL'M of Kentucky,
wiil he compelled to admit a republican
member in the ni.iih district, which is
still in doubt. --In Missouri two republi­
cans have beon elected. North Carolina,
will semi but one republican, as before.
In West Virginia the struggle for the iirst
district indicates the possibility a re
publican gain there. Late teiegmphio
advices declare that in the state oi' Sena-,
tor I
lamp'.on the first district, has been
carried against the democratic frauds ami
intimidations. This will break another
solid delegation.
SENSATIONAL RUMORS.
There was a sensation:!I rumor ycslcr-.
day that the national democratic com­
mittee. intended to cor lest the New York:
election, aurt Bsrnuni went so far on Wed­
nesday night as to telegraph to various
state committees that there was every rea
son to believe New York had really gone
democratic by ojOCO majority.. He
claimed enormous republican frauds in
Ncv York city and Brooklyn, aud hinted
that every district was to be carefully re­
counted by democrats, and if there wan
any reason to believe that fraud existed^
a contest would be made. The stntv.
however, has undoubtedly gone republi­
can by 15,000 «r 20,000—too great to give
the democrats fresh hope to build on.
The congressional delegation,.so far as.
known, stands: Republicans, 140 deiiU

DAKOTA.
BURLEIGH COUNTY.
The eleciioiv in this county passed oil
quietly and the largest vote ever polied
was csst. 1 here were three stra'.gnt tiesi^
ets in the field, and thirty-nine splits.
is doubtful if a third of the vrttes cast
\yej'« straight "tickets, //.he r.fepublicar.ti
made a hard fight "but the opposition \ya«
too strong. Tlie independents worked,
but they had only a few in their ranks ta
scatter at the "different precincts, and
wherever the democrats had posted the
circulars that the Independents had witlir
drawn, scarcely ary votes were cast
the ticket. The main fight in the cam­
paign was for cnunty treasurer. Th
good-.men were iu the field, but Mr.-Bell,
the democratic nominee, is 'probably
elected by 170 votes over all. McKenzu:
for sheriff, is elected by 500 votes over all,
and the balance of the county democratic,
ticket by reduced majorities. For deie
gate MeCormack has majority of:
with TVTO preciuts to hear from. Smith,
democrat, ovei Wallace for the council
has about 150, and Kelliher over Wei!»i
for the house about 10t). At the lanuiui?
precinct there was -v
LARGE FRAUDULENT VOTE
which will be contested and in all probaT
bility thrown out. Thiswili give Vyyiti,
republican, a clear majority, bi^t will not
materially change ihc majority ot the
other nominees on the straight democrat­
ic tickei. For district attorney Job a C:«i
land will leave the county with 0J0 ma­
jority and possibly more. For regislei oi
deeds John Richards rs'ceiyes a majority
of at least 210 over Mr Snmtgrass^ ijiV.
Independent and republican caudjclate.
The vote for county commissioners js so
divided that it is Impossible to tell yet
who are elected. There aie three pre,
cincls yet to hear iroin, but- the returas in
show that ai^oiu 11(50 votes were cast, in
the county, two-thirds ot which are rlemT
