BY 25,000 MAJORITY
REMAINDER OF STATE TICKET C
STILL IN DOUBT.
Chances in Favor of Bruce.-Official
Count Will be Necessary to Deter
mine Result for Subordinate C
New Yorw, Nov. 7. - Incomplete
returns from two-thirds of the couin
ties in the State of New York made it
impossible up to 11 o'clock tonight
to give definiite figures oi the State
ticket other thain for governor. Char
les E. Hughes, Republican candidate
for governor, has a majority of 52,
000, approximately, but the remain
der of the candidates are in doubt.
For lieutenant governor, Lewis I
Stuyvesant Clialier, Democratic-Inde- t
pendeice league candidate, has a lead
in the city of Greater New York of
134.941. UJp-Stite, Bruce, Republican
candidate for lieutenant governor, is
rullliig slightly ahead of Mr. Hugh
Cs' vote. As Mr. Hughes came down
to Greater New York with a lead of t
approximately 129,000, it will readily
be seen that tile vote for second place
ticket will be very close and only the
coiplete officlial counit will deterinile
the successful can(lidate.
Returns are. coming in very slowly
from up-State counties. At 11 o'clock
40 out of the 61 counties in the State I
had completed the count. "d turned
in the figures. From tliese it was
impossible to predict the result of the
entire count as to the subordinate
places on the two tickets. At Repub
lican State headquarters no definite l
statement of claim could be had, but t
based upon returns already in it ap
pears that Bruce is elected by 5,000.
It was stated that as there were still
about, 20 counties to be heard from
officially, nothing would be given out
until these have been reported.
flov.-eleet. Charles E. Hughes to
night gave out. the following state
"It. is a victory for sobriety and for
decency in the administhIio6 of g6v
ernment. But"the people vill tit, t
crate indifference to public wrongs.
They desire neither exaggeration nor
inflamatory appeal on the one hand,
nor moral or politi6al obtuseness oni
the other hand. The oleetion is a 1
.rbu*e to .demagogical methods and
it is %iA%prqssive in its demands for I
responsible leadership. I shall ad
dress myself to the task of squaring
.Me administration of government

a saiteient alle.-ed to have been made
with I regard to the matter by Col.

".. The negro t roops would never
have been quartered at Fort Short

''This alleged statement by Col.
Pitcher having been brought to the
attention of the President, the fol

it. was sent to the war department by
