CONGRESS SAFELY REPUBLICAN WITH A COOD MAJORITY.
.A Very Heavy Vote Was Polled In the Tuesday Elections in Nearly Every State of
the Entire Country.
From the time that the news began
tQ'come in over the wires last evening
there was every indication that the
Republican National ticket was not
only safely elected, but that McKln
ley's majority in the Electoral College
would far exceed that of four years
ago. Every report from the country
was most flattering to the Republi
cans and at an early hour the Demo
cratic managers began to concede to
the Republicans the states .that were
up to yesterday considered doubtful
or oven in the Democratic column.
The figures from Greater New York
"were a surprise to both parties, for It
had been given up that the city was
under the control of Boss Croker and
the ring, And that the only hope of the
Republicans lay in carrying the state.
Now, however, it Is safe to say that
.the Republican ticket 1s elected In
Tew York by from 100,000 to 150,000,
Kentucky and Maryland also failed
t'he Democrats, who were confident of
carrying both states, and at a late
hour they, with Indiana and Illinois,
were claimed by the Republicans at
-substantial majorities, while their I033
was conceded by some leading Demo
crats. Tht Now England states, New
Jersey, Iowa, Wiscinsln and (Michi

with each succeeding report. North
Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia,

their places as expected In the Demo

any, figuie-, owing to tho unusually
moagie letiirns which hae been le
ceived Tho Democrats hae gained
aljjiit 1,000 in Cle eland, as much In
Cincinnati and less In some other cit
ies. Tho Republicans gained In the rural
district- and in this city, Canton, the
ko'mo of the Pre-ildent, In Ala on, the
home of Chairman Dick, and in a few
other cities Demociatic State Chair
man Long concedes tho state to the
Republicans, but expects a gain of one
congressman over the last delegation
from Ohio In congress, which stood
1G Republicans and five Democrats. Re
publican State Chairman Dick stands
by his poll of the state, which he in
sists shows from 73,000 to 80,000 for
MoKlnley, and he insists that the Re
publicans will gain two or three con
gressmen. At this hour the indications aie that
McKinley has gained largely In Ohio
over his plurality of 189G, and that
mSLof It came from .the rural clls
tricts, with the exception of Columbus,

and Isoon afterwards the lights were

guests, and gave no sign of either fa
tigue or disappointment. The feeling
Is quite general that Bryan will say to
morrow that he does not doubb the
election for the second time of his rival
for whllo ho has given no direct ut
terance of such concesslon,he indirect
ly admitted tonight to friends that ho
does not hope for more than to re-
duco the Republican majority in some
of the eastern states.
