Des Moixes. Nov. 5. Complete official
returns have been received from thirty
four counties. These give Boies a major
ity of 12,222 over Wheeler. This is a net
gain for Boies of more than 1,000 over the
rate two years ago. The other state offi
cers are well dd with him. Governor
Boies' majority cannot, by these figures,
ba less than ,500. The full count of the
state will not he completed before today

the legislature remains about the same
as before reported. The Democrats have
surely elected 45 out of 100 members of
From Inofficial Returns.
Unofficial returns indicate Boies' plu
rality at 10,000. Eighty-eight counties
give him 12,806. The other 11, two years
ago, went 8,084 Republican, reducing
the first figure to 9,722. But proportionate
gins in these 11 should increase the plu
rality to 10,000. Democrats claim the
election of the whole state ticket, as it
runs well up with Boies. Dey, for rail
road commissioner, runs ahead in many
counties. Tbe senate stands 25 Democrats,
24 Republicans and 1 Independent. Repub
licans have a majority of 2 or 8 in the

low citizens: Let me thank you for this

to rejoice. The Democratic party of Iowa
has won a rreat victory. Cheers. Now,")
If we will learn to use the power we have
obtained fawly and justly, Iowa will con
tinue to be a Democratic state; and now,
after thanking you again, let me bid you
good night." The crowd then dispersed
and Governor Boies went to bis rooms at
the Savoy hotel.
