AvorsTA, Mfc, Not. 8. This city has been
xcltcd all day over tho election returns,
ilanjr congratulatory dispatches woro re
telred from all quarters by Mr. Blalno. About
noon Senator Mahone telegraphed a conflma
tlon of tlio report previously rccch cd from
John S. Wlso, that Vlrtrtnlajhacl gono republi
can. This news was very consolatory to thoso
of Mr. Blatno'a friends who woro still doubtful
about New York. Early lu the evening n dis
patch was received announcing that California
had declared for lllatuo and Logan by & ma
jority of 10,000, Kevada by a good
majority, and Oregon by at lcait 1,000.
Several discouraging dispatches were received
rom Indiana, which had previously been
regarded as certain for tho republicans. But
Mr. Blaine's friends were not disturbed, be
causo they claimed that their candldato could
bo elected without Indiana. About 9 o'clock,
however, a messogo was received from Mr.
Mlcbcncr, tho secretary of the Indiana repub
lican etato committee, stating that although
tho statowas closo Blalno and Logan would
almost certainly bavo a small plurality. Al
most Immediately after this came tho follow
ing from New York!
"I have accurate returns from every election
district savo 187 In tho state, and, mating
amplo allowance for theso latter, I am sure
you bavo carried tho etato.
"S. B. Tnreat,
"Superintendent Board of I'ollco."
Trora New Orleans came tho announcement
of republican gains on members o' congress
and from Wisconsin and Michigan assuranco
that thoso states were "all right."
Mr. Blalno remained quietly at homo all
day receiving tho returns, and being still
somewhat hoarse lie spent most ot tho tlmo
In his room to avoid the fatigue of talking, to
which ho would havo been subjected had he
remained among his friends as he did last
evening. About 10 o'clock a rrh ato dispatch
was recched announcing great republican
fains In Indiana and certain ictory for Blalno
and Logan. About 10 30 more congratulations
camo In from widely separated points, Indi
cating that the news of Mr. Blaine's election
Bod gono all ov cr tho country.
Indianapolis, Ind.,Noy,6 Gov. Hendricks
has been In rciclpt of telegrams from arlous
sources all day, but has had nothing from the
national democratic committee since morning.
Ho answered a telegram of Mr. Joseph IM
lltzer, of Iho New York H'orW, who nsked his
opinion or the result and the reasons that In
his belief Id to It, and attached uu Inquiry ns
. ujn nci, Juih unu guilU. ill
response, Mr. Pulltzor telegraphs 1 that
New York had given Cleveland andlleudricks
a small plurality, which might bo Increased,
sard how the slato was sure for tho democrutlo
electors.' The lollowlng telegram from tho
Young Men's Independent commlttco gave
Mr. Hendricks considerable personal grutltlca
tlon, but It was not tallsfylug as to tho actual
facts;
"l)cllc lug that the war Issues aro tcttlcd.the
Independent republicans havo given voutbo
Hale, and voted In favor of odnunUtr '-a re
form." This evening an Associated Frcss reporter
called upon Gov. llendrlcks,and was accorded
a brief lutcn low. "I (Irmly believe." said tho
Eovernor, "that Indiana has gono dcmocratlo
u decisive majority, and am Inclined to ex
tend my estimate of last night of 6,000 to 8,000.
As to Now York state, of course, 1 can not bo
so certain. If tho Associated Press tljurcs aro
correct, they settle New York state against
Cleveland. The division of tho democratic
vote, between Cleveland anil Sutler, was duo
to the employment of the latter to work in tho
interests of Blaine, 'lliero is no doubt that
Butler v. an working for republican manasern."
At the democratic commlttco rooms, whilo
tho claim of carrying tho state by over 10 tioo
Is still kept up, a furthir claim Is made that
tho republicans aro "doctoring" tho returns to
dccolvo tho peoplo. Chairman Henderson

Anxious to Know the licialt.
The greatest Interest In tho election returns
yesterday was manifested all over tho coun
try. Tho dispatches on Tuisday evening had
been so conflicting that both republicans and
democrats had gouo to bed very much dls
eatlsfled, and so at tho earliest possible hour
yesterday crowds thronged about tbo various
newspaper offices iuall Iho principal cities
and eagerly scanned tno later aud fuller re'
turns. The republicans who had flt some
what cast down the night before gathered
now hopes and fresh courage as the dispatches
becamo moro favorable ror Mr. Blalno, and
tho democrats who had retired full of enthu
siasm felt their conlldence slowly slip away as
tho news showed steady and Increasing gains
for tho Plumed Knight,
In New York city almost every kind of nows
could be obtained. Tho Timet, World, and
Herald Insisted that Cleveland had carried tho
stato and was elected. The &un maintained
that tho news was not sufficiently
accurate to state positively who was
elected, whilo the Tribune, In an extra,
asserted that Blalno had carried New
Y'ork and was elected. Tho most lntcnso
anxiety was felt as to tho result In tho stato,
for It w as felt that either candldato who should
carry New Y'ork would bo elected, As the re
turns from tho Interior ol the stato began to
show large republican majorities, calculations
were made ution the remaining counties,
assuring slmtllar gains, aud the conclusion
was readied that Blalno would como down to
Harlem river with a plurality sufficiently largo
to ovcrcomo Cleveland's plurality up to that
point, with a good margin to spare, and at
noon tho J a aid conceded tho stata and elec
tion to Blaine. Thealtcruoon pajiersudmlttcd
tbut such an ot cut was possible, and tho Com
mercial AdnrtiHr emphatically asserted
Blalno's election, undtnnt he had carried Now
lorie by a huuusomo plurality.
Tho crow els around the vurious newspaper
offices were simply enormous, aud completely
blocked travel both ou llta sidewalks and lu
tho ttrcots. Those seeking republican in
formation gathered around the Aim and
lYibune, while the llaal'l captured the demo
crats, and all day long thu crowds still re
mained. So great was tlio general Interest felt
thut conductors on the elevated railroads
would Jump off at tlio various stations, get
bulletins which vrcro awaiting them, there, aud
read them to the passengers, who cheered as
the news coincided wltu their s) iupathlcs.
At a large number of places up town bulletins
wcro displayed aud were eagerly scanned by
large numbers or people, although tho crowds
were not so great as thoso dow n town, Ev ery
class of people seemed Interested; merchants
and brokers neglected tbclr business and
mingled with thu crow ds nbout tho newspaper

In Brooklyn thero was n Jojous fraterniza
tion between tho democrats mid independents
early In the morning because they thought
ibeyhad won n victory. The democrats ad
mitted that they could not lint a polled so largo
a voto without the assistance of tbo "mug
wumps," nnd wero consequently grateful for
the aid that the bolters hactglvunihcm. Tbo
independents felt that they had administered
n Just rebuke to tho republicans for nomina
ting a candldato whom they could not support.
They were accordingly tatlslled with them
selves nnd tho democrutlo nurtv. Later in tbo
uay ncituer democrats nor inucpcneionts wcro
so much satisfied. Both began to feel that
their labors had been In vain, and the luiley
