585 behind Hill in 1883, while Fassett was
2.630 behind Miller. And this difference
was kept np, and increased, right along.
In the meantime the returns from this
city and Brooklyn continued to swell

. Some of the Early Estimates.
Before 11 o'clock last niirbt the rltv
Press association said Flower's majority
It the state would be about 25,030. A
Vorld bulletin gave Flower a plurality of
15,000 in Kings county. Tbe Tribune
said that Flower's plurality in the state
was estimated at 15,000. Tbe Press bul
letin said the Republican state committee
conceded Flower's election. A Herald
bulletin at midnight said that fifty coun

The returns indicate that tbe Republicans

Returns at 2 a. in show that tbe New
York senate will stand 19 Republicans to
13 Democrat.. The assembly, 63 Repub
licans to 65 Democrats On joint ballot
tbe Republicans will have 81 votes to 79
D.-niocrats, an increase of 2 Republicans.
The Herald says that the state legisla
ture stands as follows: Seuate Repub
licans, 18; Democrats, 14. Assembly
Democrats, 59; Republicans, 69. Repub
lican majority on joint ballot next year
14. Last session tbe Democrats had a
majority of two on joint ballot.
New York, Nov. 4.-8 a. m. One thou
sind six hundred and nineteen election
districts in New York state outside of
New York and Kings counties give
Flower 177.6S6, Fassett 190,000. The same
districts in 1888 gave Hill 197,824, Miller
242,279. The 1,734 districts outside New
York and Kings not yet heard from
give in 1888 Hill 201,234 and Miller 820,915.
Miller thus had in these districts a
plurality of 19,661. In case Fassett
should have this same plurality in the
districts yet to hear from, bis total plu
rality outside of New York and Kings
tounties would be 81,975; Flower's plu
rality in New York city being 58.290 and
in Kings county about 16 000. It would
thus appear probable that Flower's plu
rality will be something over 40.000.

Returns are unprecedentedly slow.
Twenty-one towns give an average Repub

Republican gain in 354 towns of the state
of 5.824. Russell's plurality last year was

Elected a Successor to Bardsley.
The hotly contestod judicial fight in Al
legheny, Lancaster, Bedford. Dauphin
and Lebanon counties served to bring
out a large vo te. As most of these coun
ties are Republican tbe general effect will
favor that party's state ticket, though
tbe Democrats secured many votes for
Wright and Tilden by trading their local
candidates. City treasurer of Philadel
phia, William Redwood Wright, Dem.,
who was appointed by Governor Pattisoo,
to succeed the notorious John Bardsley,

above that you can use your own figures,
for we're snowed under."
"How about the legislature?" be was
Well they take that too, but I cannot
tell by what majority."
This is the first news given out at Dem
ocratic headquarters, but it had been
noticed that no high degree ot animation
had been felt there all evening since the
Drst returns" were received. Hilarity
reigned supreme in all Republican bouses.
Later Returns at Cincinnati.
One hundred and twenty precinct out
of 55 in Hamilton county give McKiuley
a plurality of 1,611. It the returns con

' Governor Campbell's Concession.
Governor Campbell virtually concede
the election of McKinley, though not In
so many words. The United Press called
upon Campiwll at bis office at midnight
and found him in anything but a cheerful
mood, surrounded by members of his fan
ily aud intimate friends.' Said be, upon
being asked for an interview: "I have
nothing so say." But being questioned
further, he continued: "The situation, I
will admit, looks anything but favorable
for me. All private advices until now
have been very flattering but in consistent
with the returns by Western Union wire.
I don't know where these election returns
come from, but if they are true it looks
as if I am defeafed."
Twenty Thoasand for McKinley.
The latest concession at Democratic
headquarters is 20,030 plurality for Mc-
Kintey. They have received no informa
tion on tbe legislative ticket, but are
ready to adirit their hopes in that direc
tion are decidedly dampened.
