Chairman Rob -rt 3laz -t Defeated For
NEW YORK, Nov. 9.-The receipt of
later returns of yesterday's election in
this city and state shows practically nc
changes in the figures given cut last
night. In New York county the entire
regular Democratic ticket was elected
by pluralities averaging about 50,000.
Of the assembly districts in New York
county, the Democrats elected 31 assem
blymen, a gain of four. The Republi
cans will probably have a majority of
U4 in the assembly, a Republican gain
In Kings county (Brooklyn) the Dem
ocratic ticket was elected by pluralities
averaging 14,000, except that Gray,
(Dem.) for registrar, was defeated by
Howe (Rep.) by 166 votes. This was
due to internal strife in the party, a
number of the Democratic leaders hav
ing practically withheld support from
Practically all political interest in this
city and even throughout the state is
now centered in the question as to
whether or not there will be a contest
made by Robert Mazet (Rep.), who was
defeated yesterday by 400 votes by
Perez M. Stewart, Tammany and Citi
zens' Union candidate for assembly in
the Nineteenth Ne w York district.
While the Republicans admit that
Perez M. Stewart received the greater
number of votes in the Nineteenth as
sembly district, they unanimously de
clare that Mazet will again occupy his
seat in the assembly. Stewart's plural
iy is less than the number of alleged
fraudulent votes cast in the district for
the Tammnany ticket. It was announced
that Mazet would miale a contest and
there was ample evidence to justify a
Reublican legislature in throwing out
more than 400 votes which were cast
REPUBLICANS CARRY OHIO.
Plurality of Nash Miay Reach Sisxty
CoLttxnLs, 0., Nov. 9.-The Demo.
cratic state committee has no additional
returns today and nothing to anncunce.
It is understood that Mr. McLean may
make a short statement soon bearing on
the causes that brought about the re
sult. Judge Nash, the governor-elect,
has received many congratulations, es
pecially over carrying his own county
of Franklin by over 2,000. The county
was carried by the Democrats for gov
ernor by 1,300 two years ago.
Chairman Dick today has revised his
fiures so as to claim from 55,000 to 60,
000 plurality for Jlud;;o Nash for gov
ernor and the rest of the Republican
state ticket and an unusually large ma
jority in both branches of the legis
lature. No senator, however, is to be
selected by this legislature.
The total vote was perhaps exceeded
only at the last presidential election. It
will reach 920,000, as compared with
704,000 last year and 64,000) in 1897,
with which year the vote was compared.
The plurality of Judge Nash exceeds
that of President McKinley mn 1806 and
almost doubles that of Governor Bush
nell in 1697.
The Jones vote, although the largest
ever polled for a third candidate, is not
regarded as large today as indicated in
the earlier returns last night. It is not
likely to exceed 100,000 and almost half
of this vote was cast in Cleveland, C.n
cinnati and Toledo.
The senate stands 19 Republicans. 8
Democrats, 4 d oubtful, inclnding 3 from
Hamilton county. The house stands 58
Republicans. 34 Democrats and 17
doubtful, including the 10 members

ALBANY, Nov. 9.-The result of the
election in th~e state shows Republican
gains in assembiymen and a gain of mu
nicial offices in many of the cities.
In Albany, which is normally Demo
Icratic, only three Democrats have been
elected on the city and county tickets
and the common council is Republican.
In Troy, th~e mayor elected is aninde
. lMayor Molloy, who is a membr of the
state Democratic committee.
In Rochester, the Republican organ
ization, headed by Georgo W. Aldrich.
elected their candidate for mayor over
the present Democratic mayor, who
was returned twice by large pluralities.
In the city of Amsterdam, a Demo
cratic mayor is replaced by a Republi
can, Samuel Failin. The Democrats
re-elected DeWitt mayor of Binghamp
ton by a plurality of L160.
In Syracuse the Republicans did not
gain, former Attorney General Han
cock, the candidate for mayor, being
defeated by the preseut mayor, Maguire.
In Utica, the Republicans gained, but
the Democrats still control.
In the city of Rensaiaer, the Demo
crats gained, electing the mayor.
In the assiembly the Republicans will
have more nembers than their most
sanguine leaders claimed Lef ore o'ection.

from all but 13 counties in the state,
some of which are uncfi hial, and with
the vote of 1897 as the basis Gf calcula
tion, at the same ratio of Renublican
gains, Taylor's pluralty in the state
A majority of the ni.simg counties
are frcm the Eleventh district, which is
large'y Republican. At Republican
headquarters it is still maintained that
Taylor's plurality will reach 15,000.
Complete re-urns from every precinct
in the cizv of L-nisville give Gorbel 15,
006; Brown, 21,7-J, and Taylor, 1.3,60,
giving Tayor a plurality of 3,::54
Chairman Blackburn of the Demo
cratic stato campaign committee gave
out the followinz s:atement at noon:
"Goebel is elected by 3,000 to 4,000
mojority on face of returns. If contest
is made his majority will be increased.
Legislature is safely Democratic, both
branches Democratle, majority on joint
ballot not less than 20."
Chairman Long of the Republican
committee said at 1 p. m.:
"We have received oflicial returns
from two-thirds of- the counties, and
these, based upon very conservative es
timates from the missing counties, give
Taylor a plurality of about 10,000. As
the reports come in they are more fa.
vorable ann will undcubtedly increase
the Republican plurality. Every effort
has been made to circumvent any fraud,
should it be attempted."
REPUBLICANS CARRY IOWA.

DES "OINEs, Nov. .-Election re
turns come in slowly, but continue to
be more favorable to the Republicans.
Governor Shaw's (Rep.) plurality,which
last night was figured at 52,000, is now
declared to be 61,000 by the Republican
committee, the Democrats conceding
Comparison with the vote of two
years ago shows Republican gains, al
though the vote is much lighter than
then. Several counties heretofore Dem
ocratic, notably Monroe, have given
good sized Republican pluralities. The
67 counties so far reported give Shaw a
plurality of 40,301. T wenty-three coun
ties are yet to be heard from.
The indications point to Republican
gains in the lower house of the legis
lature. Cummins, candidate for United
States senate, claims he will have a
clear majority in the house and that the
senate will be evenly divided between
himself and his chief opponent, Gear.
The indications are that the result of
the senatorial contest will not be de
cidod by yesterday's election and that
the nomination will depend on the leg
islative caucus in January.

PHILADE:LPHIa, Nov. 0.-In this city
yesterday the total vote cast was 15',

Th~ese fitgures would indicate that as
a result of the attack on Barnett's mili
tary record he was cut about 10,000
votes in this city.
The latest figures indicate that Bar
nett had from 110,000 to 120.000 plural
ity in the state. The extent of the cut
ting cannot yet be ascertained properly,
but it is lelieved that he suffered the
loss of at least 20,000 votes in this way.
There was searcely any signx of a fight
in thfestate at large, and the vote gen

The vote of 1898 was: Wolcott, (Rep.)

Comment among Republicans today
was in effect that the result was an in
dorsement on the part of the Massachu
setts people of the policy of the national
administration in the Philippines.
On the other hand the Democrats
point to the great loss in the Republi
can vote and claim that Massachusetts
thereby has entered a protest against
expansion. Especial emphasis is laid
on the fact that 2:2,000 Republicans re
frained fronm voting.
The Democrats are jubilant over the
victory in Boston, wvhich, after giving a
Republican plurality for governor in the
past three years, gave Paine a plurality
of 6,200. It is claimed that this fore

in the country precincts. The total vote

amendment is undoubtedly defeated,

Many electors neglected to vote on the
