George B. McClellan Elected May
or of Greater New York by
a Plurality of 61,414.
BECKHAM, KENTUCKY, REELECTED
In Ohio the Republican Ticket Was
Elected by a Plurality otProb-
ably Over 100,000.
Gov. Bates Was Re-Elected In Massa
chusetts By Practically the Same
Plurality as Last Year Con
tests In Other States.
Cincinnati, Nov. 4. Complete returns
from the city of Cincinnati give Herrick
U.UO, Johnson 17,335, a plurality for Her
rick of 26,814, making a republican gain
of over 11,000. The entire republican tick
et of Hamilton county is elected, includ
ing three senator and ten representatives.
The republicans carried every one of the
24 wards of the city.
Columbus, O., Nov. 4. Tho democratic
state committee gave out no statements
Tuesday night. Tho republican state
committee at 10:30 p. m through Chair
man Dick, announced that the plurality
for Herrick over Johnson for governor
would exceed any plurality ever given a
governor in Ohio, and that tho republican
majority on Joint ballot in the legislature
for the re-election of Senator Hanna
would be over 100.
Columbus, O., Nov. 4. The republicans
broke their record In Ohio Tuesday in
pluralities for governor by electing Col.
Myron T. Herrick, republican, over Tom
L. Johnson, democrat, by considerably
over 100,000. The plurality on Joint bal
lot of over 100 in the legislature for the
re-election of Senator Hanna more than
doubles any previous record. Senator Fpr
nker had a record-breaking majority of
5 on Joint ballot for his re-election two
years ngo and that for Hanna this year
is twice that majority. Hanna suc
ceeded John Sherman in tho senate
March 5, 1897, by appointment from Gov.
Bushnell, and when Hanna was elected
for the unexpired Sherman term and tho
full term of six years ending March 5,
1903, ho had only one majority after tho
most bitter contest that was ever waged
in an Ohio legislature. Senator Hanna
will have tho distinction of having the
largest as well ns the smallest majority
of any senator elected from Ohio.
On account of the vote on five consti
tutional amendments the counting was
delayed nil over Ohio and when returns
wero received they could not be corn
spared with those of any previous state
election as tho 71 municipalities with
D.000 population or over had been re-dls-trlcted
under a new municipal code that
went into effect this year, and changed
the voting precincts in those reorganized
At 9:30 it was estimated that the repub
lican plurality would not be less than
125,000, and that It might beat tho record
of 137,000 in tho panic of 1894. The repub
licans at that hour had carried all the
doubtful counties for members of the leg
islature that were heard from.
' Returns from about one-third of the
precincts indicate Herrick (rep.) for gov
ernor will have about 3,000 plurality In tho
city of Columbus and about 2,200 In
Franklin county. Two years ago Kll
bourne (dem.) for governor carried tho
county by 2,270. Indications are that all
four of tho republican representatives In
the county will be elected, although the
Vote on one candidate will be very close.
An hour after midnight Chalrmnn Dick.
of the republican state committee, gave
out his last announcement for Tuesday
night that the republican plurality would
exceed 1,000; that the republicans had
elected 2C and the democrats four state
senators, with three districts not heard
from; that the republicans hnd elected S7
representatives and the democrats 11, with
12 counties not heard from, assuring a
republican majority of S3 on Joint ballot
for senator with 15 votes not yet deter
mined. The repullcans elected J. E. Harding in
tho district that Includes Butler, Brown,
Clermont and Warren counties, all demo
cratic except Warren. Butler Is known
In the state as the "Gibraltar of democ
racy." The republicans never before car
ried this district.
Cleveland, Nov. 4. The Leader, repub
lican, clalnjs that this, Cuyahoga county,
will give Herrick, rep., for governor, a
plurality of 4,000.
'Toledo, Nov. 4. Twenty-three precincts
out. of 102 In Toledo indicate Herrick will
have 2,600 plurality and republican legis
lative ticket will have 4.800.
Steubenville, O., Nov. 4. Weems, repub
lican candidate for congress in the Six
teenth district, elected by 5,000 majority.
Cleveland, Nov, 4, At midnight Chair
man Salcn. of the democratic state execu
v tlve, committee, conceded the county to bo
republican by 5,000 majority. He also
conceded the election of the entire repub
lican county and legislative ticket. At
the same time Mayor Johnson sent a
message of congratulation to Col. Herrick
on his election,
New York, Nov. 4. After a remarkable
campaign in which there was united
against him nearly nil of the newspapers
nnd practically every minister of religion
In tho city, George B. McClellan, son of
thq civil war general, was elected third
mayor of the Greater New York over
Seth Low, fuslonlst, the present mayor,
by a plurality of 01,414.
Edward M. Grout was elected controller
and Charles V. Fornes, president of the
board of aldermen. Theso two men were
originally on the fusion ticket and were
endorsed by Tammany, whereupon the
fuslonlstB took tho names from the Low
ballots and nominated other candidates.
It was tho nomination of Grout and For
nes by Tammany that caused Hugh Mc
Laughlin, the veteran leader of the Kings
county democracy, to bolt and declaro
that he wpuldn't support men who, were,
not democrats. In spite of his defection,
however. McClellan, Grout and Fornes
carried Kings county, Tho management
of their campaign there wbb takqn over
by State Senator Patrick II. McCarren
when McLaughlin refused his aid.
A surprise was the low vote for Wnl.
S. Devory, former chief of police, who
ran on an independent, ticket,, whjch was
given practically no support. The re
sults phow a tremendous change of pub
lic sentiment since Mayor Low's elec
tion two years ago when ho won by 31,
fi32. At that tlmo he carried nil the bor
oughs but Queens, his plurality In Man
hattan and tho Bronx being 5.CC3 nnd
Brooklyn 25,767 and in Richmond 763. In
Queens, Shepard, dem., had a plurality
Tuesday McClellan carried Manhattan
and the Bronx by about 58,000, a gain of
63,000; Brooklyn by about 6.000. a gain of
31,000, and Queens by about 5,000, a gain of
more than 4,000. This makes a total net
gain for McClellan of about 103,000 as com
pared with Shepard's vote of two years
Low carried only one borough Rich
mond by about 200 votes.
The result was known early nnd nt 5:15
Mayor Low sent a telegram of congrat
ulation to Col. McClellan.
Returns from tho state Indicate the
election of republican mayors in Syra
cuse, Rome, Elmlra, Plattsburg, Roches
ter, Albany, Blnghamton, Watertown and
Oneida. In Oswego, Utlca, Schnectady,
Troy and Amsterdam democratic mayors
Returns from the assembly districts up
state indicate a few gains by the repub
licans, the returns up to 11 p. m. show
ing four republican assemblymen in dis
tricts formerly represented by democrats.
Fronrmany of the up state assembly dis
tricts, however, no reports had been re
ceived. In New York county the repub
licans had gained one assemblyman, sev
en districts being unreported. The re
publicans gained a state senator in the
23d district, where a republican succeeds
Charles McClelland, democrat, who re
signed to nccept a federal appointment.
The senate holds over and Is strongly re
publican. Tho latest returns indicate that the ca
nal proposition to widen and deepen the
.state canals to admit of the passage of
1,000 ton barges, has been carried by a
majority of about 175,000. The proposition
carries with it an appropriation of $101,
000.000. Returns at midnight from nil assembly
districts of the state gave the republicans
a net gain of seven In the assembly with
two districts In doubt, thereby increasing
the republican majority In the state as
sembly. Harvey Watterson, son of Col. Henry
Watterson, of Louisville, was defeated by
a very close vote In a strongly republican
district in Manhattan.
Revised returns from Brooklyn with
seven districts missing indicate that Bor
ough President J. Edward Swanstrom
fusion, has been re-elected by a small
plurality. Earlier returns gave the elec
tion to Martin W. Littleton, a McLaugh
Boston, Nov. 4. John L. Bates was re
elected governor of Massachusetts Tues
day by a plurality of about 37,000 over Col.
William A. Gaston, tho democratic candi
date. With a dozen -cities and towns to
hear from, Bates had a lead of 32,315, but
as the missing towns are all strongly re
publican, there was every Indication at a
late hour Tuesday night that the plurality
of the republican candidate would be
practically tho same as that of last year,
although tho total vote may run higher.
Tho legislature remains practically un
changed so far ns tho democrats and re
publicans are concerned, but the socialist
party, which had three members last
year, will be represented by only one, a
member from Brockton. Tho socialist
vote fell off considerably from last year,
and the failure to re-elect Representative
Carey, of Haverhill, one of the party
leaders and a member of the lower
branch of tho legislature for the past five
or six years, was one of tho features of
Boston, Nov. 4. With returns complete
from every town and city In the state,
the total voto for governor was: Bates,
rep.; 199,393; Gaston, dem., 163,544.
Louisville. Ky., Nov. 4. Louisville, or
Jefferson county, gave Beckham 5.200 ma
jority over Belknap In round numbers.
Yerkes, rep., carried Louisville and Jef
ferson county at the Inst gubernatorial
election by 5,100. This gain of 10,000 votes
addpd to Beckham's majority of 3,500 at
the last election Insures him a majority
of 13,500 If all the other counties in the
state duplicate their vote at the last gu
bernatorial election. Beckham, however,
has made a total gain of nearly 2,000 In
his total voto from the twenty odd coun
ties heard from.
The Eleventh district, composed of re
mote mountain counties, Inst yenr fur
nished 19,000 republican majority nnd will
probably duplicate It this year. .Returns
from that district will not bo completed
before Thursday night. Beckham's ma
jority outside tho Eleventh district Is es
timated at 35,000. Nono of the counties In
the dlstrlbt has been heard from.
Philadelphia, Nov. 4. Estimates from
the 67 counties of the state Indicate a
plurality for Mathues, rep., for state
treasurer, of 217,784. Snyder, for auditor
general, and Morrison and Henderson for
Judges of tho superior court were given
approximately tho same immense plurali
ties. Snyder, who became the object of
criticism because as a state senator he
voted for what is popularly known as the
"Press Muzzier" law, was apparently cut
very little. Tho returns indicate repub
lican gains in 49 counties and, democratic
gains in the remaining 18 counties.
It Is apparent from the nature of the
estimates received during the night that
tho official count will Incrense the repub
lican plurality to such an extent that It
may exceed 225,000.
Tho city complete gives Mathues, rep.,
for stato treasurer, 163.316; Hill, dem., 26,
767; Patten, pro., 1,154; Smith, soc, 2,765;
republican plurality, 136,549.
Lincoln, Neb., Nov. 4. Based on returns
from 115 precincts outside of Lancaster
county (Lincoln) and Douglass county
(Omaha), the republican Btate central
committee at midnight made the claim of
the election of tho entire republican state
ticket by not less than 10,000 plurality.
This claim is considered conservative and
newspaper returns tend to confirm it.
At 2 o'clock Wednesday morning the
defeat of John J. Bulllvan, democratic
candlate for tho supremo bench, by John
B. Barnea, republican, Is conceded. The
majority will bo between 4,500 nnd G.OOO.
Sullivan carried this city by 1,200, but this
mnjority was wiped out In the state. Tho
entlro Btato ticket is elected by majori
ties ranging from 6,000 to 7,000 In favor of
tho republican candidates.
At 2:30 Wednesday morning Chairman
LJtylsay, of the republican, committee, re-
vWcd Ms sffiTetiienC ClSt Carnes was
elected by 10,000.
Des Moines, In., Nov. 4. Returns re
ceived Indicate the re-election of Gov.
Cummins by a plurality of 60.000 and of
his associates on the republican ticket
by substantially the same pluralities. At
democratic headquarters so large a plu
rality Is not admitted. Tho legislature
returns, although not compete. Indicate
little chango from two years ago when
the house contained 82 republicans anil
18 democrats and the senate 40 republic
ans and 10 democrats. The democrats
mny gain two or three members of the
Trenton, N. J., Nov. 4. The republicans
In New Jersey Tuesday elected four of
the six state senators nnd enough of the
state assembly to claim both houses. The
entire democratic assembly ticket was
elected In Union county, which Is a de
feat for United States Senator Kean. Tho
republican nominees who wero favorable
to his return to the senate were .openly
opposed at the polls by the antl-Kean
faction In that county. The next senate
will stand 14 republicans nnd 7 democrats.
The house will stand 36 republicans and
Jackson, Miss., Nov. 4. From returns
received at midnight it Is doubtful If the
vote will reach thirty thousand. The
ticket, headed by J. K. Vardaman for
governor, is elected. An entirely new leg
islature was elected which will elect two
United States senators. Senators H. D.
Money and A. J. McLaurln, who were
nominated in the August primary, will
have no opposition.
Baltimore, Nov. 4. At 1 o'clock Wed
nesday morning the returns from Balti
more city and the Maryland counties are
meager owing to tho length of the bal
lots, nnd therefore It is Impossible to ac
curately estimate the result. The Indica
tions, however, point to the election of
Edwin Warfleld, dem., as governor over
Stevenson A. Williams, rep., nnd that the
legislature, which will elect a United
States senator, will also be democratic.
Providence, R. I., Nov. 4. At midnight
the returns Indicate tho re-election of
Gov. Garvin, dem., by a greatly reduced
plurality. The vote Is very close, how
ever, and the result probably will be In
doubt until the last district Is heard from.
The republican state central committee
claimed that later returns would over
come Garvin's lead.
Richmond, Vn., Nov. 4. The elections
In Virginia, which was for members of
tho assembly, have resulted In a demo
cratic sweep of the stnte. There were few
contests, the field as a rule being left
open to tho democrats. At 11:30 o'clock
the outcome at the hardest fought points
wns still undecided,
Denver, Col., Nov. 4. With nearly full
returns from tho election In this city and
scattering returns from various parts of
the state, there seems little doubt of the
election of John Campbell, rep., for mem
ber of the supreme court. No other of
fices was filled by this year's election.
San Francisco, Nov. 4. Incomplete re
turns received up to 9:30 p. m. Indicate
tho probable re-election of Schmltz, the
union labor candidate for mnyor by a
small majority. Partial returns from 117
precincts give Schmltz, 1,450; Crocker,
rep., 1,252; Lane, dem., 7C0.
Salt Lnko. Nov. 4. Returns from 11 of
the 52 city election precincts give Knox,
rep., for mayor, 1,936; Morrlss. dem., 2.
2f0. Tho returns Indicate Morrlss' elec
tion by nt least 1,000 plurality.
KILLED IN A BOOTH.
A Political Dispute Ends In the Mur
der of Two Men.
Bristol, Tcnn., Nov. 4. A fatal elec
tion row occurred In an election booth
at Falrvlew, Scott county, Va., Tues
day. Two men were killed, ono other
fatally injured and ono seriously. Tho
dead are John Osborne and Ezeklel
Nickels. The wounded are J. H. Ca
tron, shot through tho neck, will die;
Alexander Keys, shot In the right hip.
The trouble arose over objections be
ing made to C. P. Roller serving as a
republican judge. Roller, It is claim
ed, had been selected by democratic
election commissioners for service.
Osborne and Nickels, the two dead
men, were democratic judges and were
brought Into tho quarrel on account of
their official connection with tho elec
tion, Tho two men who were killed

Twelve Shots Were Fired at Him In
Lexington, Ky., Without Results.
Lexington, Ky., Nov. 4. Twelve
shots were fired at Capt. B. J. Ewen,
'tho star witness in the feud cases re
cently tried in Breathitt county, as he
passed along the dark end of Walnut
street Tuesday night. The shots were
fired from a blind alley. One went
through his hat and another through
the lapel of his coat, but none of them
touched him. He was walking along
with Judge W. H. Mann, at whose
home he is stopping, and the Judge
had just crossed the alley In front of
Ewen when the firing began. Capt.
Ewen returned the fire.
Bloodhounds have been sent for and
will bo on tho trail of the would-b
assassin before daylight. The assail
ant is believed to be wounded. Ewen
had remained in front of the Herald
office watching bulletins of election re
turns which were displayed until after
9 o'clock, when he started home with
Judge T. F. Mann. As they were pass
ing a dark alleyway within 20 yards
of Mann's homo Ewen was fired upon.
Mann had crossed the alley and Ewen,
who was walking behind him, had just
emerged into the alley. The form of
a man rosetfrom behind a stump and
opened fire upon him. Mann ran as
hard as he could without looking back.
Ewen had his hand on the handle of
his revolver as has been his usual cus
tom since his experience in Breathitt
county and because of threats against
Ins life. He returned the fire. Assail
ant and victim continued to fire until
their pistols were empty and Ewen
A UNIQUE DISTINCTION.
For the Third Time Beckham Will Be
Frankfort, Ky., Nov. 4. When Gov.
Beckham, of Kentucky, is again inau
gurated ho will, technically at least,
enjoy the unique distinction of having
threo times assumed tho office. As
lieutenant governor he succeeded to
tho position upon the assassination of
tho lato Gov. Goebel, but In accordance
with the stato constitution could not
serve out the unexpired term, because
Gov. Goebel had not been in oillce a
year. Tho matter was again referred
to the voice of the people, and he was
elected to fill the unexpired term. He
has just been re-elected.
It has not been the custom to re
elect the chief executive in Kentucky,
and it has been 93 years since any of
Gov. Beckham's 33 predecessors have
been so honored. In fact, besides the
present Instance, only the first two,
Isaac Shelby and James Garrard, have
served more than one term.
