New Yorh ,Nov. B. M. A. Ilanna,
chairman of tho Republican national
committee, says sufficient returns havo
hen recoived to satisfy him that tho
following states havo been carried for
McKlnloy anil Hohavt without n doubt:"
California, 0: Connecticut, C; Dola
waie, 3; Illinolo, 24; Indiana, 15; lown,
13; Malno, 0; Maryland, .8; Mnssnohu-

Ilhodo Island, 4; South Dakota, 4; Ver
mont, ljWcst Virginia, fl; Wisconsin,
12; Wyoming, 1. Total 2G3.
"Another most significant fcaturo of
this victory," said ho, "Is In tho fact
that McKlnlcy and Ilobart's election
hnB been scan cd by a plurality of over
1,000,000 of tho popular vote tho larg
est evor given.
"I am confident that wo will scctiro
tho other two electors In Wyoming and
ollnn (11) is in doubt.
"The importance to tho country of
this result cannot bo ovciestlmatcd and
is a matter of congratulation to all
loyal a.vd patriotic citbc-.is of tho Unit
ed States. Incendiary utterances and
pretended claims which puco:lon the ac
curacy of this stutomnt should not dis
turb I lie public mind."
Louisville, Ky.,Nov. 5. With two
whole countirs, Leslie nnd Knott, and
1C precincts missing, Bryan has a plu
rality of 21S votes lu tho state, but
many of tho returns arc unofficial and
It ceuras highly probable that tho j'.ato
board will have to dccldo tho result.
Of the two missing counties, Lcsllo
is Republican and gavo Bradley 716
majority. Knott Is Democratic and
cavo Hardin (D.) over Bradley last
year 349 majority. Tho mlFjIng pro
clncts nro distributed about equally
among Republican and Democratic
counties. Three missing precincts In
Bollalro nro strongly Republican, two
precincts In Clay aro likewise, one In
Letcher Is Republican, ono in Grant is
safoly Democratic, na I ono in Pen- .
dlcton and three in Harrison.

On tho strength of added returns
