sip and Aate-Electio Figures.
Chicago, Npv. 9. The election is over,
but the counting is not. Both parties are
claiming the president and the Democrats
claim Illinois. Dispatches from New York
give the following claims at headquarters:
Democratic Alabama, Arkansas, Dela
ware, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illi
nois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mary
land, Mississippi, Michigan (6 rotes), Mis
souri, New Jersey, New York, North Caro

What the Republicans Claim.
Republicans insist that Harrison has the
following states: California, Maine, Mas
sachusetts, ten votes In Michigan, Ohio,
Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode bland, Ver
mont, Idaho, Colorado, Illinois, Iowa,
Kansas, Minnesota, Xew Hampshire, Wis
consin, Montana, North Dakota, South
Dakota, Washington, Wyoming, Nebras
ka, Indiana aiid Delaware, or 229 electoral
votes, a majority of six in the electoral
sollege. The Republican committee also
claimed an even chance in West Virginia.
The Congressional Situation.
The latent returns on representatives in
congress seem to show tbe Democrats
have elected 226 members and the Repub
licans I'M. Both the chairmen at New
York are positive that the final returns will
how their ma elected. The Populists
have undoubtedly carried Nevada, and that
is at this writing the only state they are
known to have won, though they claim
The United States Senate.
If tbe states elaimed by the Democrats go
as claimed tbe Republicans have lost con
trol of the United States senate. This
will make the whole government Demo
crats: for tha rat time in thirty years.

"0" on Their Estimates of Votes.
Contrary to the general expectation the
number of votes cast in this city fell con
siderably below the estimates made by the
election expert mathematicians. As early
as 6 o'clock the Democratic managers ad
mitted that the falling off amounted to
more than 7 per cent, compared with the
vote four years ago. Various theories
were advanced as to the cause. ; It is ar
gued that hundreds of ritizens who visited
the poll were obliged to stand in line
awaitingheir turn until their patience
became exhausted, and they gave it up.
The result is a considerable decrease in the
ballots cast far the candidates for each

Th Republicans acknowledge the falling
off in votes and claim that the loss caused
by the delay at the booths affected them
more seriously than the Democrats. The
latter suffered more through the chal
lengers of the Republicans and the arrests
on charges of illegal registration. On the
, whole in the decrease both iiarties suffered
about equally, and the result will, there
fore, be according to the party strength on
both sides. J
I Scenes at Headquarters.
! The wires at Democratic headquarters
began to tick at 6:20 J. m. yesterday.
When it was reported that 520 New York
City districts had given Cleveland a plural
ity of nearly 42,000 unqualified satisfaction
Was expressed; and when the returns from
the state "above the bridge" showed that
there was a falling off in tbe votes of both
candidates compared with 18s, but that it
was greatest in the case of Harrison, and
aVso that the heavy losses were almost uni
fomily Republican, the committee saidi
"The state is ours for sure. We will have

U'lu-n came returns from 3tKl city elec

ment. The returns from the interior of
the state came pouring in, showing a Re
publican loss in nearly every case. Chair
man Jiarrity was overwhelmed with con
gratulations, but he would not commit
himself. -It looks very much like a Re
publican slaughter," he said, "but it is too
early in the day yet to shout " As the re
turns came into Democratic national head
quarters they were duplicated by special
wire to Mr. Cleveland at) his house on
Fifty-first street. 1 ;
iHow Cleveland Heard the News.
When the news from Connecticut, New
ersey and Illinois came ;in the tidings
were taken to Mr. Cleveland and later to
the feminine coterie who were; visiting
Mrs. Cleveland in another room. ' It was a
pretty and interesting scene. There was a
lull in the receipt of tbe returns between
10 and U o'clock and politics were almost
forgotten for the moment, while the family
and friends; indulged in small talk, sand
viched in with an occasional story that
caused the room to ring with laughter.
All anxiety and tension had disappeared in
the face of the New York returns on the
principle of the old adnce that "As goes
New ork ko goes the Union." 1
At Hepubliran Headquarter.
It was late in the night lief ore the' Re
publicans at hendquartcifs would give up
the state, and even thijn the news that
Indiana had gone Republican and that
West Virginia was in doubt helped to
keep up their courage and pve them hope
