IrANA'OLIs, Nov. 8.-Full returns
have been received from 24 counties out
of92, which show a net republican gain
of ,855. The daily evening News today
says: The republican committee claims
to have returns showing Harrison would
carry the state by 5,000 plurality.
Indianapolis, (midnight) Nine hundred
prlcincts give Harrison 148,185; Cleve
iand, 135,185. The same precincts in 1884
gave Blaine 129,848; Cleveland, 128,589.
Missouri O. K.
ST. Louis, Nov. 8.--The democrats
state that the committee has complete
and incomplete returns from about 50 of
the 114 counties in the state, which indi
cate that Cleveland will have a plurality
of 30,000 in the state. Francis, governor,
will have a plurality of 14,000. These re
turns embrace the vote of St. Louis,
Kansas City and other large cities in the
CntcAoo, Nov. 8.-The vote of 84counu
ties in the state of Illinois show Harri
son's majority to be 28,570. At this hour
the best bulletins give Harrison's plural
ity in the entire state at 20,000. Thirty
three counties out of 99 give republican
gains of 4,6002. The republicans claim
every congressional district except the
NEW YORK, Nov. 8.--The latest re
turns underrate the election of Harrison
and Morton. Hill is elected governor by
20,000 plurality. The vote of all the
counties in the state show Harrison's
plurality to be 11,191.
New Jersey Probably Democratic.

What time Papers of the East Will Say.
WAsmINGTON, Nov. 8.-The Post to
morrow will say: The president takes
the result calmly and philosophically. I
He talked quite freely about the returns
and the increased republican vote, but
expressed not the slightest regret in the
world at any action he had taken during 8
his administration. He is willing to ad- a
mit that his position on the tariff and the a
decided stand he took in favor of revenue t,
reduction may have lost him a good v
many votes; but he still maintains if it 8
were to be done over again he would fol- z
low the dictates of his convictions. The s
president received no telegrams from the p
national democratic committee until late (
this afternoon. Front what lie has heard,
however, he concedes he Is defeated. f
He attributes his defeat to no one in par,
ticular, and says that Hill and Tammany
hall treated him with perfect fairness,
and he has no fault to find at all.
NEw YORK, Nov. 8.-The World says:
The national democratic committee an
nounces that New York is so doubtful an
official count will be necessary to decide
the election. This will take three days. t
The Evening World extra quotes Chair
man Brice, of the democratic national
committee, as having said: "We con
cede nothing, and from the latest returns
there are fair indications that Cleveland
has carried New York state." Following
this the World extra says: This is what
they say at the national democratic head
tquarters, and it was given out as the of
ficial utterance of the national committee
to a crowd of anxious visitors who
thronged the parlors this morning in
search of the latest news. This state
ment is based upon the fact that correct
returns front the interior counties of the
state show a larger cutting down of the
earlier Harrison gains, and many of the
counties whose plurality had already
been given, purporting to be in full, are
still found incomplete, especially in
flings county, where it is said there will
be a fight Ibefore the count is completedt
When it was learned that Illinois and
Wisconsin might be close states, as- well
as Indiana and Connecticut, telegrams
were sent to tlhe chairman of the state
committee in each state. Mr. DeForest
was the only one at the democratic state
central rooms. He said:. We are not in
as bad shapl)e as we were on the day after
the election in 1884. We will concede
nothing. I have wired to every county
for revised returns. Till I receive them
I shall claim the state. There are errors
bsLthe KihngEs county returns, though
how extesive I do not know. The count
will be looked after.

Quay said: "I can't say anything until it
is all over; of course Harrison is elected,
and has undoubtedly carried New York
state. 1 am told that an attempt has been
made by the democrats in King's county
to steal the state, but they can't do it."
McLellan, secretary of the executive
campaign committee, has telegraphedthe
state committees of Illinois and Wiscon.
sin for the latest returns. He says: The
national committee does not concede New
York to the republicans. No returns
have been received to show anything
more than that the state is close. Con
necticut and Indiana have been won.
California is very favorable to the demo
Several inquiries have been sent to the
republican national committee inquiring
as to the correctness of the report ac
credited to Senator Gorman, alleging the
discovery of errors in the returns from
King's county which, when corrected,
will give New York state to the demo
crats. Col. Dudley at 4 p. m. sent the
following to Gen. Harrison: Positively
nothing in it. Our people are guarding
the returns from King's county and other
precincts and counties with labsolute
vigilance. Fraud is barely possible, but
will not be pernmitted, if the most perfect
watch by honest, brave men can prevent
it. The state is now ours. The latest re
turns are sure to give you 15,000. If any
change, it will be more.
The times says the democrats will have
a majority in the Fifty-first congress
somewhat larger than in the Fiftieth.
The result of the election in Kings
county was a surprise to the leaders, who
expected 23,000 plurality for Cleveland.
The shrinkage is accounted for by the
mugwumps and prohibitionists to the re
publican party. The majority will not
exceed 13,000 in Kings county.
Senator Quay, chairman of the repub
lican national committee, authorizes the
following statement: "The republicans
on Tuesday carried by increased majori
ties all the states that were carried for
Blaine in 1884 and in addition have New
York by a plurality of 25,000 and Indiana
by from 4,000 to 0,000. West Virginia is
in doubt. General Harrison's election is

The wind blows raw, and my' hopes re

But hope springs ever, I learned at
So we won't turn tail, though a fool
But face it out in our old bluff way

DIED 1I JERUSALEM.
It. G. Spofford, the Man Who An
nounced Himself the Second
Chicago dispatch, October 31st: H. G.
Spafford, an old resident of Chicago, who
announced himself as the second Mes
siah, died in the city of Jersalem on Sep
tember 25th. lie had gone there to con
vert all Hebrews to Christianity. Mr.
Spafford was one of the best known citi
zens of Chicago at one time. He was a
successful lawyer and in 1859 was the
professor of medical jurisprudence in the
Chicago medical college. He acquired
wealth in his profession, but the great
fire of 1871 made him comparatively
poor. In addition to his loss he had a
more serious one about the same time.
His wife and children had been in
Europe, and took passage home on the
Villa de Havre. The vessel was wreck
ed on the voyage, and among the drown
ed were all his children. 'rhis seemed
to weaken his mind, and in 18840 he went
to Jerusalem with twelve disciples, five
of whom have since died.
On Monday evening next, 12th inst. at
