Republicans Have the Legislature
on Joint Ballot.
CLOSE CALL FOB THE PR?SIDENT
MAKER?RE-ELECTION OF GOV?
ERNOR BUSHNELL CONCEDED BY
Columbus, Ohio, Nov. 5.? Yesterday
was a day cf anxiety with the Ohio pol?
iticians. Itontnetl with the Bepubll
caus and Democrats both claiming the
election of their State tickets and n ma?
jority of the rr embers of the legislature.
Before noon the Democrats conceded the
election of the Republican State ticKet
by larger pluralities than were given
in the earliest dispatches as the claims of
the Republicans. At night the Demo?
cratic State committee announced no
deilnite claims on the legislature, nud
the Republican State committee raised
its claims to a majority of live on joint
ballots, as follows:
Senate?17 Republicans, 19 Democrats.
House??r>8 Republicans, 51 Democrats.
Totals?7? Republicans, 70 Democrats.
Wood county had been conceded to the
Democrats until last night, when the
complete returns caused the Republicans
tc claim it. On the returns complete at
Republican State headquarters the Dem?
ocrats will have a majority of two in the
senate, and the Republicans of seven in
In these clnims the fusionists from
Cincinnati are all counted as Democratic.
The Republicans cau organize the house
without fusion. There is only one of the
four senators, elected on the fusion
ticket in Cincinnati, who is a Repuhli
<? in, and he now becomes a factor. If
Senator Volght, of Cincinnati, who is a
Republican, and elected on the fusion
ticket, shou'd vote with, the Republicans
on the organization o< the senate or on
anything else, that body will be a tic,
with Lieutenant Governor Jones, Repub?
lican, having the deciding vote. If the
Democrats had secured a majority of the
legislature or the fusionists held the
balance of power, it is said that the
fusionists would have voted with the
The Republicans now expect two or
more of the fusion Republicans to vote
with them for senator, in which event
*hey claim a majority of 7 on joint ballot,
with 77 Republicans and (58 Democrats.
None of the fusion votes for senator
were counted on by the Republican ?nan
agers in the event they would be needed
by the Democrats to elect the'r nominee,
but now many speculations are made
about the fusion votes.
There is an alleged movement which is
causing much more comment, ami that
is the rumor that Governor Bushnell will
be brought out for Senator against Mar?
cus A. Hanna. Allen O. Myers, one of
the managers at Democratic State bead
quarters, announced that Senator Hanna
would never bo elected to the Senate on
the close joint majority that is claimed,
although Hanna had been indorsed for
Senator by the last Republican State con?
vention, the same as Foraker was in?
dorsed by the Republican State conven?
tion two years ago. Mr. Myers said if
the close call on the legislature went,
against the Democrats in theoflicinl count
of the close counties, that the Democrats
in the legislature would joiu with a dozen
or more Republican members of that
body in electing Bushnell instead of
Hanna to the Senate. Governor Bushnell
and all others involved in this movement
deny any knowledge of it or that they
would have anything to do with it.

ENDS HIS CAREER.
Washington, Nov. 4. ? Senator Gor?
man's defeat In Maryland ends his politi?
cal career. He began life as a page in
the Senate in the early fifties and has
been on the government payroll almost
steadily ever since Since he has been
the leader of Democracy and boss iu
Maryland he has controlled matters :n
such a way as to eanse a popular lerolt.

HOW IT HAPPENED.
Baltimore, Md., Nov. 4.? The next
Maryland legislature will elect a succes?
sor to Senator Gorman. It, will be Re?
publican, in all probability, by seven ma?
jority on joint ballot.
There has been great excitement In this
city. For many years the election has
not been so clqse and even yet the returns
are not all in. Tuesday night, wheu the
figures from Bnltlmote city were first
displayed and it became certain that the
Republicans had swept the city, even
carrying Democratic Strongholds, the
impression became general that Senator
Gorman bad been defeated. As the night
wore on, however, and the returns from
the counties began to arrive, it was quite
evident that the Republican landslide in
the city had imt extended to the counties
and consequently the friends of the Sena?
tor faced the situation with renewed
There was ercry reason, too, for this
encouragement. The Eastern Shore
seemed practically solid for the Demo?
crats. Such of the lower tier as were
heard from were likewise Democratic,
and even Washington, in which Ilagers
town is situated and which is always Re?
publican, had gone over to the Gorman
column. It was, therefore, with abso?
lute confidence that the Democrats
claimed a majority of the legislature,
and indulged in mutual congratulations.
Such '?-ns the situation. Yesterday
morning the conditions began to change.
It was found that the Democrats had not
elected a solid delegation to the legisla?
ture from Washington county, and in
other counties the official returns lopped
off one Of more membeis. Finally, the
Democrats brought their figures down to
5(5 Democratic and 57 Republican mem?

Late at night it whs learned definitely
that St. Mary's goes Republican by 319
majority, electing the entire ticket, and
that Calvert is Republican by 300, elect?
