Special to Tiik Astoriax.1
Oantox, Nov. 6. McKinley 6aid
this afternoon to a reporter that,
while coucedius his probable defeat
by rt sranll majority, he is greatly sat
isfied with the result. He said, the
issue was between a protective
tariff and a tariff for rev
enuo only. It was clear and
distinct and nothing else entered into
the canvass. His bill was tho center
of assault and the result he regards as
a signal victory as a majority of over
2,900 democratic votes in his district
last year was reduced lo about 200
this year. Ho carried his own ward
and the city and county by a large
majorities, showing unprecedented
San Fkanscisco. Not. G. The lat
est returns from the interior denote
no material change from previous
figures. The state legislature will bo
almost solidly republican and the
chances are that the entire congres
sional delegation will also be repub
lican, as the latest reports from the
first district give tho republican can
didate over one hundred more votes
than his opponent.
Chicago, Nov. C Chairman Jones
of tho republican state central com
mittee concedes the legislature to tho
democrats, but claims tho election of
the lepublicau state ticket by from
6,000 to 8,000. The democratic stato
central committee is unwilling to con
cede tho claims of Jones in regard to
tho state ticket Tho official returns
from twenty-seven counties out of 103
in the state, show a net gain . f 10,000
for the democrat state ticket.
Judging from the latest returnsSena
tor Fnrwcll says he will not be Iho
next senator from Illinois, but John
M. Palmer will.sncceed to Ibn honor.
SruixoFiEEb, Nov. 6. General
Palmer this evening received a tele
gram from Carthage saying that Ed
wards and Myers, the two democrats,
are shown by the official count to have
been elected to tho legislature. Gen
eral Palmer, on reading this dispatch
said: "This makes 103 democrats on
the joint ballot, a majority of one."
Tho 103, the general explained, in
cluded the F. M. B. A. men, all three
of whom he claimed were pledged to
support him on a ballot for United
Kankakee, Uov. 6. Indications
now point to tho election of H. W.
Snow, Dem.," as congressman from the
Ninth district. Payson, Eep., carried
this district by 2,000 majority in 1888.
Kansas Grrr, Nov. 6. There is now
but little doubt that the next Kansas
legislature, on a joint ballot, will be
under control of the farmers' alliance
and the democrats combined, and pos
sibly the alliance will have a majority.
This means sure defeat for Senator
Ingalls. Returns from the country
districts are coming in slowly, and
both republicans and alliance men are
claiming the victory in the guberna
torial contest, but so far, Willets, Al.,
is in the lead. In the First congres
sional district an official count will be
necessary to determine whether Moon
light, Dem., or Broderiok, Eep., is
elected! The remaining-six congress
men were elected by the alliance party.

Tacoma, Nov. 6. Thos. Carrol,
when interviewed by the United Press
reporter to-day said:
"I am satisfied with the result and
shall not contest Mr. Wilson's seat in
congress, and although lam certain
that fraud was used in many 'cases
and that the democratic house would
seat me, I believe Mr. "Wilson's ma
jority would offset all fraudulent
votes. Hence 1 will not contest."
Nov. 6.- -Boyd,
Omaha, Nov. 6.--Boyd, Dem., is
elected governor by from 4,000 to
5,000 plurality. Most of the republi

is elected. The farmer's alliance have
the legislature, two congressmen and
most of the county officers.
Concobd, Nov. 6. The republicans
concede the election of Daniel, Dem.,
in the Second congressional district
This gives the democrats the two con
gressmen from this state. Both parties
claim the legislature.
Concord, Nov. 6. Returns from all
but nine towns'give Tuttle for gov
ernor, 40,586; Amsden,Dem., 40,000;
Fletcher, Pro., 1,277. The republi
cans have elected congressmen in the
Third an Fourth districts and the dem
ocrats carry the Fifth; both claim the
first There is no choice in the
Second. The republicans claim thir
teen senators and concede eight to the
democrats, with.no choice for the re
maining three. The democrat claim
ten, concede twelve to the republicans
and say there is no choice in the other
two. The republicans claim ten to
twenty majority in the house and the
democrats claim from jswo to sixteen.
Denvek, Nov. 6. Unofficial returns
give Townsend 3,685; Eoutt, 3,644.
The republicans elect the rest of the
ticket except superintendent of public
instruction and attorney-general. The
legislature, on a joint ballot, will
stand, 47 republicans, 26 democrats, a
majority gain of 14. This insures Mr.
Teller's re-election to the United

The Way Klaac Clear.
One of the most serious obstacles to suc
cess In the way of man Is planted right in
the middle ol the road to health. How to
restore and to maintain a regular habit of
body and digestion Is too often a source of
needless and unhappily, of vain inquiry. It
Is not necesjary to inveigh against drastic
puigatlves. They who havcused them con
tinuously know the consequence. A remedy
which unites theaction of aregnlating med
icine for the bowels with that of a tonic
both for those organs, the liver and the
stomach, is ilostetter's Stomach Bitters,
sanctioned by the best medical authority,
and receiving daily the indorsement of our
fellow countrymen. "With this effectual,
though gentle, laxative at hand, it Is possi

productive of constipation, as well as con

It is Demanded, as an Imperative
New York, Nov. 6. A Tribune's
Washington special says: The elec
tion of a democratic house makes it
the duty of the present congress to
pass an apportionment law more im
perative than ever, for the reason that
tho democratic majority in the Fifty
second congress could not be trusted
to deal with that subject With the
democrats it is purely a partisan ques
tion, and their conduct in regard to
it would be shaped and controlled by
partisan motives, regardless of the re
quirements ot the constitution or the
demands of equity. They fully realize
that proper apportionment of represen
tatives will seriously impair their pros
pects of success in the presidential
election of 1892, and if they had power
to postpone the enactment of an ap
portionment law until after the elec
tion there is every reason to believe
that they would use it. It is known
that down to the time of his departure
for Indianapolis on Monday, the presi
dent adhered to his opinion that a
