Democracy Sweeps the
Over One Hundred
ty in the Next
CLAY EVANS RETIRED IN GOOD
Buchanan's Majority Away Up
Among the Tens of Thousands.
Last Tuesday's elections proved a
Waterloo for the Republican party.
In our limited space it is impossible
to give more than the general outline
of the result, with a few of the prin
ciple details. The first thing for
which the people of this Congression
al District and of Tennessee in gener
al have to rejoice, is the defeat of Clay
Evans and the election of II. C. Snod
grass by a majority of about nine
Following are the majorities, offi
cial and estimated, as given by the
Chattanooga Times of Thursday :
Van Buren 300
give them a majority there, they will
elect a democrat to succeed Senator
Kansas for the first time breaks its
solid republican delegation in Con
gress, and returns only one republi
can out of seven. One democratic
Congressman is elected from that
state, and 5 alliance men. It is also
claimed that Ingalls, whose term in
the U. S. Senate expires next March,
will be retired from that body.
The gubernatorial race proved a
surprise in the small vote received by
Kelley and Baxter. Buchanan will
have a big majority over both of
them. Kelley's vote, from present
indications, will not reach 15,000, and
Baxter's will probably not exceed
75,000, while Buchanan's will go
something beyond 100,000.
In the First Congressional District
of this State, Alf. Taylor, the regular
republican nominee, defeated Rod.
Butler, republican independent, by
about 500 majority.
In the Second District Houk's ma
jority was reduced from 13,000 to
Democrats were elected in the other
eight Districts as follows : 3d, II. C.
Snodgrass; 4th, Benton McMillin;
5th, Jas. D. Richardson ; Cth, Jas. E.
Washington ; 7th, N. N. Cox ; 8th,
B. A. Enloe ; 9th, Rice A. Pierce ;
10th, Josiah Patterson.
All of the democratic
unseated by Czar Reed and his min
ions, have been re-elected, by in
creased majorities in most cases. The
democrats have won all of their old
districts, carried all of the doubtful
ones, and gained a number of others
which were thought by both parties
to be safely republican. It has been
a glorious victory for democracy all
along the line, and a stinging defeat
to tho republicans. We print a table
elsewhere showing how the next
Congress will stand.
McKinley of Ohio, and Cannon of
Illinois, are both defeated.
The democrats also gain control of
several more states previously held
by republicans. Patterson, demo
crat, was elected governor of Penn
sylvania by a good majority. Massa
chusetts, New Hampshire, Connecti
cut, Michigan, Nebraska and Wiscon
sin, it appears now will all have
democratic governors. Wisconsin
and New Hampshire have elected
democratic legislatures, which will
retire Senators Spooner and Blair,
and elect democrats in their stead.

York legislature, and if full returns

majority for the State Senate will be

lturk'8 Circus a lilg Thing.
Augusta (Ga.) News.
Because but little notice has been
made in the local columns of the
Evening News this week of the com
ing of this splendid show, it must not
be taken for granted that it is a poor
thing or a one-horse affair. Quite the
contrary, as those who are being en
tertained by the thousands upon Mar
ket street this afternoon will testify.
This Is one of the neatest, cleanest
and best conducted circuses ever in
Augusta. It is a museum, a Roman
hippodrome and a first-class circus
There are fifty arenic stars and that
wonderful school of educated and
trained horses, thirty in number,
which is worth five times the price of
Death of Mr. John K Bentley.
Mr. John E. Bentley, after an ill
ness of four weeks from fever, died at
tho residence of his mother-in-law.

eling for his firm for the last several
