Comment On the Avalanche Plu

Columbus, O.. Nov. B. Latest re
turns indicate that John M. Pattlson
has been elected govornor of Ohio by
a plurality exceeding 45,000. The
Democrats will havo a working
majority In both house3 of tho legis
lature, but there la still somo uncer
tainty as to tho balanco of tho state
ticket Tho earlier returns of tho day

until fullor returns from tho country
districts cut Into his voto eovorely
and ho Beemed to bo over 40,000 votes
bohlnd tho balanco of Mb ticket. If
that difference stands tho victory on
theso offlcos will depend on tho size of
Pattison'o plurality, with tho chances
in favor of tho Democratic ticket.
Chairman Garbor figured pluralities
for Pattlson that aggregated closo to
C5.000, in which event tho entire Dem
ocratic ticket waa safe. Tho Repub
licans have given out no later esti
mates slnco that of Chairman Dick,
conceding the election of Pattlson by
25,000 plurality, "but later reports ro
colved at headquarters indicate that
a larger figure Is correct.
Tho state officers and legislators

tho stato officers and legislators
chosen In November, 1908, will fi3

In 1908 will chooso a United States
senator in succession to Senator Fora
Uor. For some timo there was con
fusion on this point, and it was widely
but incorrectly asserted that tho leg
islature just chosen would name Fora
I or'a successor.
Republican ostlmatcs glvo the Dem
ocrats two to five majority In the next
eenato add from ten to fifteen In tho
house, and these nro probably tho
minimum estimates, Tho Democratic
claim Is a majority of flvo In tho son
ata and over forty in tho house.
Lutor reports to Chairman Oarber
from all doctlons of tho stato indi
cated a plurality for Pattlson of more
than 55,000, and ho said ho believed
that if tho gains continued it might
reach 60,000. Republican advices indi
cated that, leaving out tho livo largo
counties, tho Herrlck loss In tho re
maining 83 counties would average
600 yotoa to the county, or a differ
4njq of nearly 60,00(1 betwcea Uw
voto cast for' Herrlck and that for tho
romalndor ot tho Republican ticket.
Tho other Republicans, being thus
nbout 60,000 ahoad ot their chief,
would win If Pattlson were less thnn
60,000 ahead of Herrlck, but as tho
figures Indicated that Pattlson had
considerably mora than tho necessary
60,000, whllo tho dlffcronco botweon
Horrlclc and tho other Republican
candidates scorned to bo narrowing
slightly, It was safe to assumo that
tho entire Democratic ticket had been
elected, ovon though tho fullest repoit
had not boon rccolved as to tho voto
fqr thoso offices.
Following Is Chairman Dick's Btato
raont: "Estimates based upon roports
from 43 counties. Including 1.9C1 pre
cincts, and tho assumption that tho ,
samo ratio of Democratic gain win
contlnuo in tho 1,544 precincts yot to
hear from outsldo of Cuyahoga and
Hamilton counties, show that Pattl
son Is probably olected by n plurality
approximating 25,000, with tho legis
lature In doubt."

In Hamilton county tho Democratic!
city and county ticket was elected, In
cluding tho legislative delegation. For
mayor of Cincinnati Judge Edward I.
Dompsey has 0,000 plurality. Mixed
results obtained in Franklin, tho Dem
ocrats capturing tho offices of sheriff,
probato Judgo and county auditor.
For mayor of Columbus Dewltt C.
Badgor (Dom.) has a plurality of
4,720. Herrlck carried tho county by
2,074. In Cuyahoga tho cntlro city
arranged slato. It was natural to ox
poet that soonor or later this would
bo roscntod. In largo part that is
what tho defeats ot Tuesday meant. It
will bo oasy to euro this trouble. Tho
way Is to roturn to tho old-fashlonod
practlco of having real conventions, at
which all who asplro to nominations
will have an equal chanco. Thoro woro
other causes that contributed to our
defoat that will occur to ovory ono
familiar with tho situation, but I don't
caro to dlsouss thorn, for thoy will
pass away with this election."
When asked to explain tho result,
Chairman Garbor said: "Tho causes?
When any party hasboon for a long
time In powor It Is Inclined to bocomo
dictatorial and In tho courso of timo
few men aro apt to try to run things
In short, 'Bosslsm' nrlsos. Then comes
revolution. This Is tho revolt of tho
pooplo against all that sort of thing
which was accomplished by Cox and
hl3 methods in Hamilton county. Thon
this year for the first timo in many
years wo had all of tho elements of
tho Democratic party working togeth
er unltodly and harmoniously. And
our organization has boen good In all
but half a dozen counties.
"Again, thoro was tho Brannock
law and tho governor's actions In ro
gard to It, which aroused tho best
people of the stato, aligning them all
against tho party In power. And tho
Inheritance tax and all tho other
vicious legislation for which tho Re
publican party was rosponstblo con
tributed to the result."
Governor Horrlck refused at this
time to make any statement, explain
ing that until ho had soon fuller re
turns than had yet boen rccolved it
would bo impossible for him to ana
lyze tho figures and learn what wero
tho actual causes of tho defeat ot tho
Republican candidates. The gov
ernor, howover, promised a statement
for Thursday night.
COX WILL QUIT.
He Surrenders Political Leadership
In Hamilton County.
Cincinnati, Nov. 8. Georgo B. Cox,
tho well known Republican leader,
gave out tho following statement with
drawing from active servlco In tho
Ropubllcan party: "Now that the elec
tion is over and the people havo sig
nified their preference for city, coun-
and county Democratic ticket wns
elected with tho single exception of C.
W. Stage, who was beaten for probato
judgo by Alexander Haddeu (Rep.).
Tom L. Johnson was re-elected by a
plurality of nearly 12,000, Pattlson
carried thp county by about 13,000.
Brandt Whltlock (Ind.) was elected
mayor of Toledo by 5,000, whllo Her
rlck lost Lucas county by a Bmall
plurality. In Montgomery county the
Republicans elected all tho county of
ficers by majorities ranging from 2,
000, to 3,000, and tho entire city ticket
excepting tho mayor, by majorities of
botweon 100 and 1,500. Mayor Snyder
(Dom.) was elected over Isaac Kin
soy (Rep.) by 1,230.

"Tho defeats wo havo sustained In

having spent tho night at his home in
