majorities ranging fiom 5.000 to 100,
00. In each of tne above States the
Democrats lose Congressmen, whiCh
Iesures the next House to the Rp'pub
licans by a good majority.
The Dem-ocrats have carried Alaba
ma, Ar kansas, Florida. Georgia, Ken
toek), Louitlaun, Maryland, Missuesip
pt. Norin Carolina, Texas, Tenneisee,
Virginia and West Virginia. In sev
ral of thebe States te Republicans
ilaim gamns in Congr, ssmen. They
claim the defeat of Wilson, in West
Virginia, the father of the tariff bill
passed by Corgress in the summer.
The Republicans also claim that
oweus. who was running In Brecken
ridge's old district in Kentucky, is
detsated. They also claim that they
have elected two Congressmen In
Louisiana and two In Maryland. The
Democrats do not concede these gains
to the Republicans, as the districts
elaimed are very clcse and it will re
quire an official count to determine the
result in them.
It seems that the Republicans have
swept the country, with the exception
of the Solid South i hich remains solid,
ana is the only bright spot in Tuesday's
disaster. The Populists have fared
equally as bad as the Democrats as
they have falled to hold their own in
any State. Kansas and aome other
Sates that tley carried in 189 have
returned to the Republicancolumn.
Definite returns have not been re
ceived from some of the far Western
States, but it is hkely that they have
joined in the general landslide to the
Republican party, and have declared
against Democracy and Populists. The
Democrats here, including the Chair
man of the Congressional campaign
committee, concedes that the next
House will be Republican by a small
majority, but the Republicans claim a
maiority of abaruLAty, which figure
is awout rorrect.
The 15epublicans are very jubilant
while the Democrats are very much
east down. It is a great victory for
Republicans, and they know it. They
have recaptured all the States the Dem
ocrats captured from them in 1892, and
made great inroads in several States
that have heretofore been uncomipro
CBICAGO, ILL., Nov. 7 -A survey of
the returns or yesterday's election this
morning confirms the hasty estimates
and partial returns of last night. In
the West, Northwest and on the Pacif
ic coast the Republican landslide seems
to be overwhelming, and In the South
west the Republican gains reported
are of such magnitude as to suggest
almost a revolution. The only excep
tions to the rule appear to be in Cali
fornia and Nevade. In the former
State the Democratic candidate for
Governor (Budid) is apparently in ad
vance of Estee, tis Republic'an tomon'
itor, although the rest ot the Reuubih
can 8tate ticket seems to be certain of
election. In Nevada the silver party,
which exists as paity in that State
only, has to all appearances beaten the
Republicans, Demccra's and regular
Populists, electing its State tieket and
Congressman. 'I here is also an ele
ment of doubt in Nebraska, where the
election of Majors (Rep.) over Holcomb
(Pop-Dew.) is by no means assured.
With t hese exceptions, however, the
tide of Republican success appears to
be overwhelming. Ohin has given the
largest Repx'blican majority in its his
tory, wipinw out not only McKinley's
plurality of 85.000, but going above
high water inark ethby John Brough
in 1863 of 101.000. It is thoughbt that
the omfcial returns will show a Rapab
lican plurality of 140,000 to 150.000.
Colorado has repudiated Populist doc
trines and swung back Into the Repub
lican column, electing a full Republi
can ticket and b)oth Congressmen.
Kanss, toe', has returned to the Re
publican filth and Jerry Simpson is
bumied under a landslide along with
other Populist candidates. Wisconsin
has reverted her verdict of two years
ago and has elected a Republican State
government and nine out of ten Con
gressmen of the same political faith.
In Illinois the Democrats have met
a crashing defeat. Not only has the
State shown preference for Republican
candidates as expressed by some 40,
000 or 50,000 plurality, but the Conures
sional delegation hass been turned over
almost bodily to the Repubicans, Win.
M. Springer going down with his party
in the Seventeenth District. The city
of Chirago, too~has cast 25,000 plurality
against the Democrats. The Legisla
ture is Republican cn joint ballot and
the result of the calloting Is a comn
plete reversal of the political situation.
Indiana Is in fall shion, too. Re
turns are incomnplete,but there seems to
be little doubt that the Repu2blican
State ticket will have from 20,000 to
25,000 plurality and the victors wil
gain four CongressmneD. It Is signli
Scant of the general upset thbat thne elec
tion of lion. Willham Holman in the
Fourth District Is more than doubtful
and the Republicans claim that an
official count will retire the great on
jector from the National Legislatrure.
Minnesota is Republican by 30,00 to
40,000 plurality,Nelsufn winning against
the Democrats and the PApulists.
Michigan gives a Republican plural
ity of 40,000 and, unless the offlial
count changes the outicok greatly. thne
entire congresional delegation will be
Republican, It is pract~icaily the same
way in Iowa, although the Democrats
of the Hawkeye State have the proa
petof aving one Congressman
Hay es-in the Second District. The
State of Washington is Republican by
9,000 to 10,000 plurality, Including Con
grsmen. Idado's contributica to the
andslide is 2,i00 plurality and the Con
gressman from that State. North
Dakota has endorsed the Republican
ticket by 1,000 to 3,000 plurality, arid in
the territory of Oklahoma the Republi
cans have elected the delegate to. Con
gess by a plurality of 1.500. So much
fo States with R -publican pluralities.
Turrdtg to tnose Nch retain their
allegiance to Democracy there are s4ll
evidences of the prevailing trend ot
politickl opnion. Atkarsas returns a
solid Dweaocratic delegalton, but by
reduced pluralities. In K'ntucky It is
possible ard even probable that in the
Atland district, her tcfore the blI
wagik ot Democracy, will be represPnt
4 d iu tte Fifty fouith Corgress by Mr.
Deiny, Rqfubttcan. This will, how
-ver, t:e oue more to dts--ffrction of
Breckinridgo D'mocrats than to any
grouth of R';ublican 'entiment. In
Tout-ieana D-mocratic Iluralities bave
tu en cut down to such an ext eut. tbat
Republicars claim two Coogrcssmen,
whelber upon god grounds or not the
official count will detern:ioe.
TeDnfssee is all mixed up. There
are c-Ificring cla!ms as to rnigress
meii, a.d even the result of the guter
nauorial contest appears to be involved
in s( me doubt owing to s-rious arf: c

nearly 7,000 votes in San Francisco and
Conair man Gould of the Democratic
btate Committee vit is that his plural
ity will react 12.000, which will be suf
dient to elect him,ail Indications point
ing to a smaller vote for Estes in the
interior than was antieipwi ed. Hepubli
caamanagers concede the city to Budd,
Dut are hopeful that the co;nty vote
will be large enough to overcome Budd's
city plurality. Budd's associates ir the
State fight ar pear to have been sacri
ficed In his interest. It is apparent
that the Republicans have elccted six
of the seven C-.ngres-smen, Maguire in
the Fourth District being the only D
mocrat who will represent Califoruia
in the next Confress. Returns mndicate
that the next Logislature will bs R
publican by a good mejority.
St. Paul, MIon., Nov. 7.-Nelson,
Republican nominee for Governor, Is
elected by a majority of 30,000. The
entire Republican State ticket Is pro
bably elected although the Republicans
concede that Biermann, Democratic
nominee for State Auditor, ran consid
erably ahead of his ticket and It is bare
ly possible he has won. Republicans
claim the eleetion of all seven Congress,
men but indicatiorns point to the elec
tion of Hall, Democrat, over Heatwole
Republican, in the Third District.

Philadelphia, Nov. 7-Latter re

defeats Hart (Dem.) in the Eight Con
gressional District by 300 maj )rlty.
Complete returns have now bi-en re
ceived from every Congreasional DIs
trict in the State, and the result is that
the Democrats will have but one of the
30 representatives from this State In
the next House. The lonely D mocrat
is Erdman of the Nlntb, who is re
elected by a majority of 2,350. His
majority In 1892 was 10.958. In thne
last House the Democroats had ten
members from Pennsylvania.
BROOKLYN, N. Y.. Nov. 7.-The entire

THE SAME OLD STORY
H ARTFORD, Con, N ov. 7.-Up to 2
o'clock this afternoon returns from
156 -- the 188 towns in the State give
Cffia, (Rap.) for Governor a plurality
over Cady, the Democratic nominee,
of 17,178 His msjority over all can

Republican Governor has be-en elected
by the people in about fifteen years.
All the Republican candidates on the
State ticket are elected by large majori
ties, includmng Mead for Comptroller.
He defea-s Staub. the Democratic nomi

counties Coffin has majoi-ities ranging

will be Republican by 140 meajority and
the Republicarns have elected 23 of the
24 Senator?, tteFrst Hartford District

in the State has gone Republican by
good majorities. The greatest surprise
is in the decond District, where Perry

this city Burdett (Rep ) for Representa

COLUMBIA, 8 0., Nov. 7.- Iesterday
was a cold day fcr the Independents
and their Republican ally. They woo
routed horse, foot and dragoon, and the
Democratic State ticket and all seven
Congressman were elected by eomfort
able majorites. Avery county in the
State went for Evans except Bichland,
charleston, Beaufort and Georgetown,
lich four counties went for Pope.
At 1 o'clock this morning Senator
irby eatimsted that the betal vote east
for Governor would be 75,000. He gave
Pope 20,000 of this, leaving Bvan a 5,
00, and.lving him a majority of 35,

and a general knowledge of the coun
ties, a representative of The Register
gives the following table as an estimate
of tbe majorities by which each eounty
will go for Pope or Evans, as the ease

PECULIAR THING IN MARTLAND.
BALTIMOE, Nov. 7.-One of the
peculiar things about the election in
this State yesterday Is the fact that the
Democratic counties which have
secured the largest share of the Federal
cffies have gone Republican. Carroll
County, which has the Collector of Cus
toms, te bwet offis3 in the State. te
special deputy collector and % large
number or minor offizes, went Republi
can for the first time since 1866. Har
ford County whi'ch has the Collector of
Laternal Revenue and moro, minor
paces than any other county-'in the
State, In spite of the usual large D -
cratic majority, went Republican.Se -
tor Gibson's county. Talbott, which'
has eighteen men in good Federal cffi
ces, also went Republican, and other
counties with large numbers of offices
to their credit went Republican, or
showed a large falling off in the Damf'
cratie vote. It is nooiceale also that
the precint in Howard County in whicb
Grman resides and votes gave a m

TOPEKA, Ki., Nov. 7.-Ceairman
Brieaenthal, of the People's party State
central committee, cone-des the elec

men. He also concedes that the R
publinans have elected a m.j ,r'ty of

CLEAN SWEEP IN MICHIGAN.
DETROIT, Mio., Nov. 7 -Thi next
Legsiaure of Mitga will be com
posrd ent!rely of Republicans. The
Repu tslicau 5:-ate central com:nittee
Pas receivod full returna from every
Representative and -natorial district
in the State and* aucounce positively
this afternoon that the Republicans
have been eleeted in every district.
This result Is entirely unexpected. It
was not figurtd on; its effect on the
United States Senatorial succession
cannot yet be determined. It looks as
if every county has elected their Re
publican tIcket as well as giving a
plurality on the State ticket. The
pluralitifs in all Congressional distrlcts
are piling up and the smallest majority
received by a Republican candidate
will be 3,000.
HOLMAN STAYS AT HOME.
h.DIASAPOLI-, Ied., Nov. 7.-Re
turres received at Repu-alican State
committee beadquarters this morning
indicAte that the Republicans will
capture every one of the thirteen Con
gressional districts by clean majority.
The only one in doubt is the eleventh.
In the fourth Watson has carried two
counties and the defeat of Holman by
at least 500 seems sure. In the fifth
Cooper has ben besten and in the
third Tracewell (Rep.) has pulled
through by at least 1,500. In the sixth
Johnson is elected without a doubt
ad in the seventh Henry has defeated
Bynum by at least 2,000. Tne returns
from the other districts still meagre.
from the figures already received it is
doubtful if the Democrats will capture
a single Congressman. Returns from
the State show that Indiana nam gone
Republican by about 45,000 maj rity,
perhaps 50,000, the Legislature being
NORTH CAROLINA DOUBTFUL.
RALEIGH, N. C., Nov. 7.-Tne State
Judicial ticket is 80 close that it will
require the official vote to decide. The
Legislature is in doubt. The Demo
crats hope for it, but make no claims.
Populisu and Republican leaders are
very confident. The situation looks
bad for the Democrats. Indications1
are that the fusion ticket has defeated
the Democratic candidates in the First,
Fourth, Fifth, Seventh, Eighth and
Ninth Districts, making the Congress
ional delegation stand three Demo
crats, two Republicans and four Popa
lists. The Democrats, however, are
still claiming the Seventh, Eightn and,
TWO OUT OF THE WRECK.
PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 7. -While the
Democratic National committee claim
four Congressmen In Pennsylvania the
fact remains that the Republicans have
elected twenty-eight of the thirty rep-.
resentatives certain. Of the other t wo
disticts. Erdman (Dlem.) is re-elected
in the Xnth District by a greatly re
duced majority and in the Eighth dis
trict it will require the complete re
turns to decide whether Kirkpatrick
(Rep.) oi Hart (Dem.) has been chosen.

The Republicans elect the Governor

NEW ORLEANs, La , Nov 7.-Repub

equal majority and Price in the third
will h ave 5,000 votes to spare. Returns
today practically insure the election of
Boaner in the Flftb. Ogden in the

the Populist opponents. Republicans

A COMPLETE ST AMPEDE
NEW YORK, N o-v i -Not since the
war timies have Republicans swept tne
Eastern States as they did at the polls
yesterday. The size or the victory
grows as fuller returns come in. In no
State and in no city have Democrats
been able to check the stampede of
voters to the Republican standard
bearers. In rock ribbed Republican
States like Pennsylvania enormous
pluralities have be piled up, and in
States like New York and New Jersey,
which are usually classed in the Demo
cratic column, Republicasns have made
clea sweeps. The latest estimates
from Pennsylvania indicate that the
pluralty of General Hastings will ex
oed 210,000. Ltvi IP. Morton has car
ried New York State by close to
150,000, defeating David B3. Hill
after a phernominal campaign.
The CongressIonal delegation which
stood 19 Democrats to 1n Republicans
in the Fifty-third Congress will be 29
Republicans and 5 Democrats in the
Fityfourth Congress. The State As
sembly will stand 104 Republicans to
4 Democrats. The constitutional
amendments framed by the late con
rtcutional convention have been car
re. by big majorities.

COLmU IA, S. C., Nov. 9.-f ne 1g- jai
iter this morning says: sr
Ivans' majority over Pope and the to
result on the constitutional convention
question are still in some donot, as the at
correct Agures from the various coun- B.
ties could not be secured here yester- bt
day. The estimate of the Register,
howoy'r, that the convention will win
by. inajority of between 2.000 and
1.0004 accepted by nearly all the poli- G
n ft"Ma as correct. Senator Irby him
self a that i; is correct. Even the
oppoSents of the convention are get- C
ting 'shaky. The newspaper which
boasted so loudly on Wednesday that
the convention had been defeated yES
terday expressed doubt as to the result.
Those who had bets on the defeat of
the convention are now trying to
All the indications point to a major- lu
ity of at least 2.000 for the convention.
The official count of the State Board of
Managers may be required to decide to
the- satisfaction of the opponents of
the convention. ne
The Western Union Telegraph Corm
pany, which has bsen getting and
sendng out bulletins of the election, bit
last night issued a bulletin stating that
the total vote up to that time, with a R
number of precincts to hear from,
stood 21,034 for the convention and 21,- at
518 against. This leaves a majority of
less than 500 to overcome and nearly Ca
all the missing precincts will favor the 10
convention. The Western Union puts .i
the vote for Governor up to date at 31,
109 for Evans and 16,184 for Pope, a
majority for Evans of about 15,000.
The missing precincts will send that
majority to 20,000.
A-ielegram received by the Register of
yesterday from Spartanburg stated that tb
the majority in that; county for Evans
was 1,250 and against the convention is WE
400 less than the Register gava in its bi
satimate yesterday. bE
The betting man can put his money th
on the convention. It is going to win. ta
The State Board of Canvassers will
meet about the 19th of November to '31
tabulate the vote. All the county
boards meet on Tuesday of next week.
The State this morning says:1:
Every body yesterday was asking far
the latest returns Frotm Tuesday's elece bi
tion~with as much interest as if it wer w
the night of the election. All knex
that the voice of the people, freely en- 1
pressed-had the votes not been wani- bi
plated and the rankest fraud practiced t
to carry the scheme through-was em
phaticaly aqgainst a Constitutional con- h
vention. tnowing this, all were, of hr
course, anxious to see from the figures a
as they came in how the majority ap- 4
parent on the face of the first night's
returns, despite the fraud practiced in
the election .itsslf, would be scientific- bl
ally shaved down. And when they bm
peruse the figures below they will see
how It has been done.t
The State yesterday telegraphed to t
all its correspodents at the several e
county seats to wire the complete re- d
turns for their counties. Some of the 0
"complete"l returns, when compared a
with the totals of the several precincts 0
ithe respective counties-actual fig- ce
urea received from these precincts on t
the night of the election-show a most
remarkable shrinkage in the Pope and P9
"No" convention votes, while the Evansw
and the "Yes" votes show just as s
wonderful an increase. For instance sa
the actual figures received from the
towns of Kershaw and Camden and ~
four country boxes on the night of the
election showed these totals: Evans 423, ag
Pope 618, "Yes" 270 and "No" 854. h
New the total returns for the county at
mainus four county precincts, as receiv-b
ed last night, show these figures: Evansm
664, Pope 835, "Tes" 683, "No" 444.
This would seem to indicate that theret
has been some very expert counting
going on since the first returns came in.
As to the other evidences of fraud all
over the State, one but needs to refer i
the special telegrams publistied be
low from various portions of the State,
and to the announcement of the r
Republican State executive comn-t
mittee with regard to contesting t
the Congressional districts. It is need -
1ess to summariss the evidences here. ci

In this appeal to the people to aid in

RALEIGH, Nov. 8.-In the absence
of the figures the following carefully
prepared estimate may be relied upon as
latest figures on the Populist-FuKOnst
mejorities. It must be noted that the
present Associate Just'ce Walter Clark
will keep his seat as he ran on both
tickets and got nearly all the votes cast.
The next Iimted Srates Senator3 will
probably be Marion Butler and Mott
with a chance for Pritchard, but Mott
has the g now.
-Jongressional results follow:
F.rst Dit-ict, Skinner (Rep.) 2,000;
Second D'strict, Woodward (Dem.)
2,600; TnIrd 2.strit, Shaw (Dam.)

750; Egbth District, Linney (Pop.)
100; Ninth District, Pearson (Rep.) and
Crawford (Dem.) both claims that the
official count Is necessary to eecide.
The State and Judical ticket of the
Fasionists is elected by soveral thou
Band. Marion Butler' tbe Popiulist
leader, claims 20,000. Tae Legislatuce
cn joint ballot will probably be Fusion.
RALEIGH. N. C., Nov. 8 -Sim! i1fi.
cial returns from nearly every county in
the State indiicate that the Fasion ticktt,
State, Judicial and legislative, put out
by the Republicans and Popuhets is
elected by some 20,000 mejority. This
vlves them the State Treaeurer, Chief
Justica and two Associate Jastices cf
the Supreme Ccurt and five Judgts of
the Su'"erior Court.
Cbirman Butler of the Populie.s
claims the State by 30,00 and says that
the Fusionists will hav, a m.j 'rity on
joint ballot. Thiis latter rstimrte 13 be
lieved to be correct. Taey w!ll have
the Senate Dy ten majority. I; is not
yet possible to estimate their strenth
in the House. Only three Deanocrt'c
Corgressmen have bec.n clected. Wood
ward in the Second; Shav in the Third
and Lockhart in the S xth. Crawiord
is defeated by Pearson .n the Ninth by
a very small majority.

Clark has been defeated by Treloar or

tion tendencies. Bartholdt in the Tenth,
joy in the Eleventh and Rmuey in the
Thirteenth, swell the Republica ns
column. The "Swamp Angel" District
of the S.utbeast where only Democrat3
were supposed to live, have elected
Mosely, the R spublican candidate. For
the first time in twenty-five years the
Southeast has railed to come up rock
ribbed for the Democratic ticket. Coun
ties which have nevar gone Republican
since the ex-Confederates were restored
to citizenship have elected the entire
Eepublican ticket. Analysis of the vote
as shown by returns received at Demo
ratic headqurters shows that no par
tion of the Srtate has been exempt from
the shakina up. It is just as bad down
along the Arkansas line as it is up on
the Iowa border. The Mississippi Rive:
coundies are as badly "slumpad" as ts
the tier which borders Kansas.
T wo yeas ago the Democrats had
nintytwo members in the lower house
of the Legislature and the Republicans
forty-eight. This time the Dsmocrats
and Populists combined will not be able
to muster more than a strong miaority.

The r~oard, in addition to preparing

cause of the lack of ficarcss to know
that the Trustees reduced the price of
board from *7 a month to $6, to take
effect from the next session, wbich opans
in February. Tnis is cheaper than at
any institution of the kind in tfle Unite d
States. The Trustees think th9-t the
price of board can be permanently kept
at 6 a month. The students will be
iven the same bill of fare as now and
will be allowed all they want to eat.
The Trustees will call on the Legisla
ture for an appropriation to aid the col
Lege next year. It has not been decided
what will be asked for but it may be
somtting like $30,000. This appropria
tion wilt be necessary for several rea
ons. Oiie is that the loss of the main
buildwg by fire ;this summer entailed a
serious loss on the college. Another is
that the insitution bas spent a great deal
of money this year in completing the
various nuildings which are abolutely
necessary to the successful carrying out
of tne work to be done. Still another
reason is that the income frooi fertilizer
tags next year is expected to be very
much reduced. This is because the low
price of cotton has put the farmers in
such condition that they will buy little
ertili:r next year.
The present sessiao of the college has
been shortened. It was to end Decem

:eason for this is that thc heating fa
