.Whatever excitement • there was yes
teiday In the city over the election was
confined to . the - office lot - the Registrar.
The people of the city generally had re
turned to their ordinary, occupations. Now
and again some interest. was created by
the ludicrous street scene of some one
paying an election bet, .but however ab
sued the debtors of nonsense made them
selves, little attention -was paid to them.
In the purely local field there was but
one close contest, and this was spirited
enough to overshadow for a time affairs
of greater Importance. This contest was
that between Dalngerfleld and Graham
for Superior Judge. < which Graham has
won by the extremely narrow margin of
386 votes, leaving out of consideration the
Twelfth Precinct of the' Forty-flfth
Assembly District. Even were Dalnger
fleld to receive the complete vote of this
precinct, which he did not, he would not
be elected. It is. probable, however, that
be 'will make a contest.
In the Legislative field the one topic of
congratulatory comment, In addition to
the Republican success, was the over
whelming s "defeat of Henry C. Dibble In
the Forty-first Assembly District. It was
the general opinion yesterday that the
disaster to Dibble's campaign was the
end of his political career.
The percentage of registered votes cast
yesterday . was 88.09. In 1S96 the percent
age was S8.78 and In 1888 It was 87.77. The
registration this year. was 73,623, and the
number of votes cast was 64,863. Of these
the highest Elector : on the Republican
ticket, S. M. Shortrldge, received 35,112
and the highest Electoron the Democratic
ticket." J. H. Seawell, received 25.151. giv
ing a Republican plurality of 9961 votes.
office from daylight until dark. It was
regrettable that some of the election offi
cers were either negligent or inefficient
and the returns in some precincts were de
layed or misplaced. Messengers were sent
with all haste after the derelicts and at
last all but one precinct, the Twelfth oi
the Forty-fifth Assembly District* was ac
counted for an-1 the results of. the election
were tabulated. The missing district In
the unofficial returns cannot be counted
until the official count is made. There
will be no change In the result, however,
as the Twelfth Precinct of the Forty-fifth
District has only 250 registered votes,
which would not change the status of
any candidate In the closest contest.

SAN FRANCISCO has enrolled
herself among the banner Repub
lican, cities of the American
Union. The unofficial returns of
the election, with the exception
of a single precinct, have been completed
and show that McKinley and Roosevelt
have carried the city over Bryan and Ste
venson with a plurality of 9961 votes.
Never before has the city recorded such
a splendid Republican triumph. On this
tremendous wave of success many other
Republicans have been carried. Out of
eighteen Assemblymen elected in the city
fourteen are Republicans; of five State
Senators chosen four are Republicans.
Both Republican Congressmen recelvea
'an enormous vote, Julius Kahn winning
in the Fourth District by a plurality of
5300 votes and Eugene F. Loud receiving a
plurality of 4500 votes in that part of the
Fifth Congresional District which Is in
San Francisco. The success which attend
ed national. Congressional and Legisla
tive nominees marked the fortunes of
others. The Republicans won three out of
the five Superior Judges and the five Jus
tices of the Peace who were elected are
all Republicans. This in outline is the
contribution which San Francisco made
on Tuesday to the national Republican
triumph.
Although the results In most contests
were known yesterday morning, excite
ment reigned all day at the office of the
Registrar. Anxious candidates and ex
citable friends of candidates thronged the
Judge Daingerfield Defeated by Graham Jn
an Exceptionally Giose and Ex
citing Contest.
The City Gives to McKinley a Plurality of
More Than Nine Thousand Nine
Hundred.
SAN FRANCISCO'S
GIFT OF VOTES
Chairman LIndsey of the Republicans
claims to-night that McKinley carried the
State by 7000 or more, the Republican
State ticket wins by 5000 to 7000, and that
the Republicans have a majority of 17 in
the Legislature. Republicans claim elec
tion of Mercer and Burkett for Congress
and election of Pope, Moreland and pos-
Ftbly Hays. Against this the Democrats
claim Bryan hns carried the State, though
by a narrow margin of perhaps not over
a thousand; that the Fuslonlsts have a
safe working' majority In the Legislature;
that Fusion State officers have been elect
ed by 3000 to 5000, and that, conceding the
election of Mercer and Burkett, Fusion
has pulled through Robinson, Stark,
Shallenberger and Neville. The latter is
the only Fusion Congressman conceded by
the Republicans. The Legislature will bo
in doubt until complete returns are in.
COMMITS SUICIDE
BECAUSE HE THINKS
BRYAN IS ELECTED
NEW YORK. Nov. 7.-Driven to
desperation by the report that
Bryan had been elected, a man
whose identity has not been estab
lished jumped from a Hoboken
ferryboat iast night. . and was
drowned. The ferryboat Lacka
wanna of the Fourteenth-street
line was on its 7:45 o'clock trip from
Hoboken and had reached "mid
stream, when the man climbed over
the gates and stood on the bow, of
the boat.
"Ladles and gentlemen." he be
gan, "being cure that Bryan is
elected, I might as well do it now."
He was proceeding to speak, when
Benjamin Frederickson of Hobo
ken. one of the passengers, climbed
over the gates and seized him.
The man shook himself loose and
plunged into the water, almost
dragging with him Frederickson,
who saved himself only by seizing
the gates. The suicide struck the
water directly in front of the pad
dla wheel ond was .struck by. it.
The Lackawanna was stopped and
a tugboat steamed up to aid In the
search, but the man had disappear
ed beneath the water and was not
seen again.

NEW YORK, Nov. 7.— Richard Croker

CEOKEB'S HEAVY BETTING.
NEVT YORK, Nov. 7.— No news
that materially changes ;he re-
FUlt cf the Presidential elec
tior.s remains to be given. Mc-
Kinley is !'kely to have 295
votes In the Electoral CoHcgo to probably
B2 for Bryan. The cr.ly doubtful State
appears to be Idaho, which has three elec
toral votes. Kentucky, Nehru- £~ and
If'aho, should Bryan get ther\ vrild not
materially alter the result. The ds^atches

ir. that State may not l-e definitely known
until the official court .s had. A thorough
f tatement of the situation is that McKI.i
loy has the State by 4000 and that Deit
rich (R.) is beater for Governor, but all
the other Republican State car.dids.trs are
e-'.ected and that the Republicans control
the Legis'afure rn joint ballot
Sources apparently very close to Mr.
Prj-an mako the ar.r.oi'r.cements of inter
est to those who Jire concerned about his
future. It is raid that under no circum
stances will Bryan be a candidate for the
United States Senate. It is also said that
be is rot training for renoralratlon Icr
the Presidency, and that he v;ou':d only
boccne a candidate in response to very
urgent and genera! Ccmnr.ds from his
party, and that he contemplates devoting
his time to literary work, preferring em
ployment on magazines to da'ly newspa
pers.
Republican and Democratic hopes as to
Kentucky rose and fell all day to-2ay. As
wired The Call early this morning the
chances se^m to be that Bryan has a lit

that they have carried the election, but
are being counted out. There is r.o pros

of the strife and violence that have con

In the Congressional field the magnitude

ir.fi majority of thirty-five in the House

when the Herald went to press at 3
o'clock Wednesday memir.g. the Republi
cans are likely to have a majority of for
ty-eight. The Senate is likely to be safely
Republican until the next Presidential
election. To the surprise- even of the Re
publican Cor.gTessior.iLl Committee, the
Republicans have elected two Representa
tives in North Carolina.
Secretary Kerr of the Democratic Con
gressional Campaign Committee late to
night conceded the House of Representa
tives to the Republicans. He save out

Mr. Bryan's Faith.
OMAHA, Nov. 7.— Returns in Nebraska
are so close as to be watched keenly.
It Is generally believed in Wall street
that Mr. Croker did not quit much loser
on the election for the reason that he
hedged his wagers by purchasing stocks.
He took over, it is said. 20,000 shares that
have netted him an average profit of ten
points. This leaves him with $200,000 out
of which to make good $160,000 which he
lost on Bryan.
REPUBLICAN'S CLAIM NEBRASKA
At the Hoffman House to-day It was
said that Mr. Croker placed his final
850,000 so that had fortune favored him ho
would have realized about $430,000. In
view of the result of the election Mr.
Croker may console himself that the odds
made no difference to him, as h© would
have lost as heavily at even money as
he did at the longer price.
Under the weight of this money the
edds against Bryan fell to two to one,
and Mr. Crocker is believed to have fol
lowed them down the scale, placing his
money as best he could. Then came the
rally of the Republican financial strength
and the odds receded. Mr. Crocker
stopped betting when he was offered
three to one, but again reached Into his
pocket when McKinley men offered as
good as five to ope.

fident of Democratic success that he was
