NEW YORK , Nov. 8. An extra World
Jays that Chairman Brlco of thu democratic
national committee , concedes the election of
Gcrcral Harrison , The World puts Califor
nia and Indiana in thu republican column ,
and gives Harrison ) votes In the electoral
college.
In regard to the congressional situation ,
thu extra World says : "As the belated rc-
turns'lrom the congressional districts como'
in the complexion of tlio next house grows
moro and more doubtful. Thu
republicans are claiming that the full
returns will give them ttio houso. This is
improbable , but n distinct possibility. There
have been some surprising republican gains.
Democratic St. Louis has elected throe r -
publican congressmen. The republicans
IIIUKO rpparontly well-based claims to three
gains m Michigan , but the democrats gain in
Virginia. New York's delegation is un
changed us to parties. The fact on the situ
ation is there are enough districts uncertain
to turn the house majority either way.
INDIANA.
, Nov. 8. On Washington
nnd Illinois streets were gathered large
crowds shouting und cheering for General
Harrison. The crowds were naturally of a
hilarious and humorous disposition , it is
therefore not to be presumed that any dis
respect , of the president was Intended by
the roars of laughter nnd cheers that greeted
n wagon which passed through the streets
drawn by u mule. Within was a bit : colUn.
On the top of the coflln sat half a dozen
mourners carrying huge boquets in their
hands , nnd , as mourners , acting with n great
lack of decorum , for every few minutes
their feelings'overcame them to such an ex
tent that they stood up und waved their bo-
iincts and than sat down and wiped mock
tears away with' brilliant bandanas. From
the head cf the coflin hung a picluro of Presi
dent Cleveland. The eyes of the picture
were black , wlnlo below was inscribed ,
"Thoy done mo up bad. " As the funeral
wagon passed along Pennsylvania avenue it
was greeted with fitorma of applause and the
blowing of a thousand horns.
Probably no city In the union over wit
nessed Much extraordinary nnd outlandish
scenes of enthusiasm , nnd chaotic but good-
natured disorder , as prevailed hero this
afternoon nnd to-night. Certainly the citizens -
zons of Indianapolis never before saw such
nights. The demonstrations that occurred
immediately following the news of General
Harrison's nomination sink into insignifi
cance ns compared with the scenes to-day
and . tha whenever
to-night. Throughout day ,
ever the rain ceased falling , the distant boom
of cannon re-echoed the enthusiasm of ten
thousand celebrating republicans. About 4
o'clock the rain which had bcon pouring
Bte'adily for live hours , ceased , and in an in
credibly short tlmo the streets were again
swarming with yelling , hooting , horn blow
ing thousands , marching back and forth , re
gardless of the mud and water. Pennsyl
vania nvonuo , in front of the post-
ofllco und around ttio New Deni-
Bon , in ono of the big storerooms of
which building IB located the republican
county headquarters , was so cro\ydcd that
the muddy street was the pedestrians' only
unthwuy. On both sides of the avenue , as
fur down as Washington street , the howling ,
Bcrccchlng crowd had full possession , while
thu ( tame condition of affairs prevailed on
Watihinuton street for foursquare. * , and also
ulong Illinois street for two ftquarcs.
All trains arriving in thu city since early
morning brought hundreds of country people ,
who were .swallowed up by the crowd and
noon became imbued with the sumo wild
xpirit of enthusiasm , which seemed to attack
nnd possess everybody , even many demo
crats. It was a regular carnival day. Proba
bly the most uniquu feature wus the way in
which hats wore marked with red und white
chalk. On the back of hundreds were the
figures 544 , the number of votes
General Harrison received at Chicago.
Others had "Now York 11,000"
chalked on their backs , while every
lint bore Rome letters or figures. In the New
Douison and on the street corners were
half n dozen professional chalkcrs doing a
land ofllco business. Diulish young men
would submit to have their garments artis
tically marked with all sorts of humorous
characters. This dcvico that afforded the
throngs thu most amusement was a minia
ture canoe , four feet long , carried through
the HtrcutH by four men. Within the canoe
at n small chubby figure bearing u striking
resemblance to the late candidate , holding
the oars extended. The cards attached sug
gested n trip up the niythio.il Salt river ,
while n hundred men and boys followed ,
singing , "Good-bye , oh Ororor , good-bye. "
The celebration was of the most humorous
and Impromptu character , and certainly wna
nntj.designed as a murk of disrespect to
President Cleveland , us inuiiv southern
readers of this account mik'ht otherwise sup
pose. The Associated press corrc-
| iondcnt Bin-lit several hours on tha
Btrcols wll. .3slng the demonstration ,
but ilid not ln..ct : a single expression
( if personal disrespect toward President
Cleveland , und while the devices dchcribod
vruro HUggcstlvo of a certain broach of pro
priety towurd the chief magistrate of our na
tion , thla fooling will bo moro pronounced
with the reader than with the spectator , for
the good humor of the crowds and the enthusl-
HHIII permeating thu very atmosphere offer an
explanation that the distant reader cannot
fully appreciate.
As evening came on the factories am.
store a added their hundreds to the howling ,
screaming rabble. Between T nnd 8 o'clock
the excitement nearly reached the frenzy
point , A few buildings were illumlnatui
with Chinese lanterns , and thu noise of
cannon , the anvils , firecrackers und tin
horns , which continued until after U o'clock
could bo plainly heard us far out a Genera
Harrison's residence. The general and hs
family , except for these distant echoes , were
unconscious of the stirring scenes in the
city.
Except for n short walk yesterday and this
morning , General Harrison has not luft his
rciBldenco since election day , Just bo
fora dark n train \oad \ of enthusiasts
cauio la from Danville. They word
mostly members of thu ilrsl Lincoln lea ue
orguni7cd lu the -state. With fltttts Hying
men , pushing , Ringing and shouting , drums
tm hpnis , brass lands and cannon , nil unit
ing to truke nu indescribable ml'dley , tha
Harrison rculdenco wus reached. As tno
crowd surged into the yard General llurrl
koii ventured to look out of the south ba ;
window , Ho was teen Immediately and th
crowd broke for thu window. By thin tim
the spokesman of tlio delegation , lion , J
lj 'Uad Uvea uslim'd Into the library. H
said that all they wanted was to tender their
congratulations , nnd that no speech would bo
asked , and thu general accompanied him to
lie front stops. For n time each member of
ho club mudo supreme endeavors to convoy
ils individual congratulation , but Dually
ulet was restored and .Mr , Hull delivered a
ongrutulatory address , saying that "tho
> coplo after four year * of search had found
lie keystone who o loss has threatened the
lostnii'tlon of the whole fabric of the gov-
riiinrnt , anil now the arch Is perfect and the
icoplu are saved. " ( loiioral Harrison shook
lands with a few ami then bade thum a
pleasant "good night" and retired.
Fiom nearly complete returns from all
ongresslonal districts , it Is claimed that the
ndiana delegation in congress will stand ,
Icmoe.ratlotf , Republican 5.
General Harrison began to receive con-
rrntnlutory telegrams from Now York and
ho cast as early as U o'clock election nljht ( ,
vhcn the llrst nn-ugro returns indicated his
irobablo election. From that moment to
lin present writing , telegrams and letters of
ongrntulatlon have poured in upon him from
rvcr.v city in the union. The table in his
Ibrary Is piled with bundles of thcso tele-
rrams , there being fully live thousand. So
eng ns there was a shadow of doubt resting
ipon the result of the election , Goncrnl Harrison
risen was not disposed to submit for publica-
ion any congratulatory communications. The
abor of assorting the telegrams , which con-
Intio to arrive , was begun this evening ,
\mong the congratulations wore those from
.limit-man Quay and Huston , James G.
Maine , John Sherman , cx-Gov. Alger ,
Jlmuncey M. Dopew , Congressman Me-
Cinley , Mrs. Balva Lortkwood. M. M. Estec ,

NRW YOIIK , Nov. S. [ Special Telegram to
I'm : BIK. : [ Thu bulletin board lu front of
he Mail and Kxpro.ss building was the
center of Park llow attractions throughout
estcrduy. When positive and chcerlul
icws of Indiana's loyalty appeared on the
> oard about : i o'clock the enthu-tlasm of the
crowd knew no bounds , and three rousing
cheers wore sent ulong the line for Colonel
Elliott F. Shepard. Several hundred citi
zens entered the building cheering , and a
committee of six , with huge roosters on the
crowns of their hats , were then appointed to
wait upon Colonel Shepard in his oftlce on
tno fourth floor and request him to spealc
a few words to his friends below
regarding the great victory. Colonel Shepard
lescendod in the elevator with the commit-
: uc , und when he emerged on thu ground
\oor \ the shouts which greeted him were
deafening. Colonel Shepard tried to escape
without making a speech , but his admirers
would not have it. nnd he was carried bodily
out to thu front of thu building , where , nuiid
frequent interruptions from tlio crowd , he
delivered n short but pointed speech on the
victory of Harrison , Mortlon and protection ,
und the rescuu of the nation from free trade.
The Harrison and Morton banner still
waves triumphantly in front of the repub
lican national headquarters , but thu house
where Senator Quay directed his forces to
victory is no longer ulivo with campaign
workers. Colonel Sword , sorgcant-ut-arms.
had charge of thu building to-day , and
wus having the furniture und paraphernalia
rcinovid. Colonel Quay was smiling us
usual , and said , in reply to a question , that it
wus true ho had won something like 4r > O,000
on General Harrison. Senator Delamuter ,
of Pennsylvania Chairman ' able
, Quay's sec
retary , said that Mr. Quay would remain in
N'cw York until the ollleiul count wus made.
Secretary Faisott is still in the city and
will not depart for several days. Assistant
Secretary Oliarles A. Bull , who volunteered
to leave his business in Wellcsvillc and as
sist Senator Fassett , has gone home. Ho
; uinc nearer than un.vof the prophets hero in
mining Hurrison's plurality in the state.
Niw VoitK , Nov. 8. The campaign is at
ant ended In this city , and things are fast
settling down to their normal condition. The
various campaign committees have closed
their headquarters , with the exception of the
republican and democratic national executive
committees , nnd those will probably be
abandoned to-day. The national democratic
coin mil toe now concede for the llrst titno the
election of Harrison. They make this state
ment : "When the national democratic eoin-
tr.iUou claimed the state of New York on
Tuesday evening by 10,000 to 15,000 majority ,
the llgnres of the returns then received fully
justified the estimate. Hcports from New
York City and from large communities
In the interior of the stnto showed
democratic gains , and the llrst reports
from Brooklyn were to the effect that the
majority there was 19,000. The telegraph
wires were very crowded , and the trans
mission of the committee's bulletins to the
west were considerably delayed. There is
evidently a misapprehension in some parts
of the west as to the time at which tbo dis
patch was sent. "
The particular dispatch referred to was re
ceived in the west from the democratic com
mittee claiming Now York by 10,000 to 15,000
majority. When thu dispatch arrived out
there it was wholly at vuriunco with the re
turns from this state , The democratic com
mittee say it was not intended to deceive
any one , und ut the hour it wus written the
bulletins of the New York papers were
giving the state to Cleveland by 18,000 plu
rulity.
NKW YOHR , Nov. 8. An extra edition of
thoTolegram says : "Tlio house of repre
sentatives is remarkably close. " The Her
aid and World agree thut the majority is
very uncertain either way. The Herald
tlKiires a majority of two for the democrats
on very incomplete returns. The Star says
thut reports from : ) ! ' ) out of .T-5 congressional
districts give 1G5 democrat * and US republi
c-ads , leaving twelve districts In doubt , with
good chances of continued democratic con
trol of the houflo of representatives. The
New York Times figures a democratic ma
jority , while the Philadelphia Times exactly
reverses the estimates , giving three to the
republican party. McPhoraon Long , the re
publican clerk of thu house of representa
tives , estimates the republican majority at
17 , and the Tribune nccopts thcso figures.
The Press roaches the same result ,
Democratic losses have exceeded republi
can ones apparently , and thu democrats have
only u leeway of fifteen seats In thu present
house. While it takes the oflleial count to
nettle the question , it looks as if thu Fifty-
tlrat congress would bo republican in Doth
branches. _
IOWA.
CAHHOI.L , It. , Nov. 8. [ Special Telegram
toTiiBllitK. ] Preparations-for a great bar
becue and ratification meeting to bo held

republicans. Three hundred dollars have so

Iowa has gone wild over Harrison's election.

KANSAS.
Torr.iu , Kan. , Nov. S. [ Special Telegram
to Tun Bnt : . ] The dispatches received by
the republican sUUe central committee from
i-vory county in the state show that the vic
tory achieved by the republicans of Kansas
wus the grandest in the history of the state.
In spite of the desperate fight made by the
democrats , nnd the active opposition of the
union labor party and the the third party
prohibitionists , the republican candidates
have undoubtedly received the largest ma
jorities ever given to n republican candidate
in Kansas. Secretary Hutch ins , of the re
publican state central committee , states that
from telegrams received from almost every
county in the stuto General Harrison will
receive a plurality of 70,000 , nnd
Hovernor Humphrey's ' plurality will without
loubt bo (15,000 ( , but the greatest victory was
in the election of n legislature which is more
unanimously republican than > t has ever
been before. Up to 0 o'clock the connnlttpo
had information of the election of only live
omtosition members of the legislature. In
view of the fact Unit in nearly every county
n the state thu democrats and labor union
mrty had combined on members of the leg
islature nnd made n desperate tight to secure
nn opposition legislature , makes the victory
all the more satisfactory. Wyamlotto
county , which has always boon a democratic
stronghold , elects the entire republican
ticket. Cherokee county , which is another
democratic and laborunian stronghold , elects
tbo republican county ticket for the llrst
time in its history.

RAX Fiuxc.ii.co . , Nov. 8. The count of
41,402 votes In the city out of a total of r.5,370
gives Harrison 20,007 and Cleveland 21,4.V > .
It is expected that the canvass of the vote of
the city will bo completed this afternoon.
The republican stuto committee estimates
that the democratic plurality in the city will
bo about live thousand , but contend that out
side counties will furnish n republican plur
ality of 14,000and thut the republican electoral
ticket will be elected by ' .i.OOO plurality. The
prohibition vote , ns far as canvassed , falls
beloiv that of 1SS4. M. II , Do Young , chair
man of the sub-committee of tlio national ex
ecutive committee , telegraphed to Chairman
Quay last night thut all ttio Pacific coast
states had gone for Harrison , and California
particularly , by a rising vote of 8,000. The
estimates of the democratic state committee
does not vary from the one made yesterday ,
of a probable plurality of 'J.OOO to JJ.OOO
in the state. The Examiner editorially claims
California is still in doubt. The Chronielo
says ; "Wo think we are entirely safe in
saying that California has gone republican
by from four to live thousand.

MIJ/WAUKZE , Nov. 8. Returns nro coming
in slowly , but enough uro in to make it cer-
taid that the state has gene for Harrison by
at least 18,000 , and probably 21,000. Chair
man Usher of the democratic committee , con
cedes the state to the republicans by
Blaine's ' plurality in 1884 , which was
14,500. , Tlio legislature is overwhelmingly
republican , there being a republican majority
on Joint ballot of over fifty out of a vote of
133. Of the nine congressmen voted for in
this stuto seven are republicans and two
democrats. The democrats reclaimed the
Second district , which wus represented by a
republican for the llrst time in Its history ,
and the republicans have offset this loss by
the gain of the Fourth Milwaukee district ,
represented by a union labor congressman.
KENTUCKY.
COVINOTOX , Nov. 8. A story is In cir
culation in hero , that Speaker Car
lisle Is to be deprived of his certificate of
election. The ground of this action is the
alleged illegality of ballots cast for him in
Campbell and Ken ton counties. It is as
sumed that if they are thrown out bis ma
jority in the district will bo overcome. The
Kentucky law requires that a ballot shall bo
on plain white paper , with no distinguishing
features , but the Carlisle ballots wore
printed on largo sheets of perforated paper ,
so that when the tickets were torn apart
perforations appeared on the edges and
mode them easily distinguishable from the
other tickets. Color is given to the story by
the fact that the canvassing board in Campbell -
boll county is republican.
CINCINNATI , Nov. 6. In regard to the
effect of tickets with perforated edges , that
were voted for Speaner Carlisle in Covington
and Newport , the common opinion of leading
republicans und democrats in Cincinnati , as
well us in Covington and Newport , is that
they are not marked tickets within the
meaning of the Kentucky law. Further
more , it is the general opinion that perforat
ing the sheets on which they were printed ,
instead of rutting the tickets apart , docs not
show any intention to mnko thorn so that
they might bo distinguished as the voter
hamlcd them to the Judgo. In any event , if
all the tickets thus technically marked wore
thrown out it would not bo lilculy to elect
Carlisle's opponent.
WEST VIRGINIA.
WIIERMXO , Nov. 8. Dispatches just re
ceived to-night from the capitol of the state
announce that the democratic state treasurer
urer , Thompson , concedes the state to the
republicans by from -100 to 703 majority.
This Is simply a confirmation of the steady
republican gains that have been coming in
to-day. Thu republican state committee
here claims the state by a much larger ma
jority. They claim to have nt least three ,
and probably 11 solid delegation of tlvo con-
pressmen. They claim majorities for the
electoral ticket and a majority lu the legisla
ture.
ture.Tho scene of republican enthusiasm In this
city to-night is unprecedented. Thousands
of | > cople have crowded the streets in front
of tha Intelligencer building lo rend "tho
bulletins , und on every hand is heard the
cry thut the "solid south" is broken at lust
by the vote of this stuto.
MICHIGAN.
DRTUOIT , Nov. 8. Harrison's plurality In
Michigan will reach 23,000 , against 8j,000 : for
Blalno In 1SS4 , The combined greonbackcrs

exceed 0,000. Comparatively few counties
have mode returns of prohibition vote , but

nearly one-half. Luco ( rep. ) for governor ,
will have a plurality of ubsut 13.f > 00. Ho was
bitterly opposed by the luiuor men , and ran
behind In all the largo cities. In tuis county
Cleveland's plurality is 4,404 , uni ! that of
Hurt ( dem , ) for governor , is 11,013. In the
country , however , Luco more than held his
own , Thu republicans have carried eight

licuns gain two. The republicans will have

Hill ItocrotH Cleveland's Defeat.
ALIIANV , Nov. 8. Governor Hill was ser
enaded to-night at the executive mansion ,
and in his address to the thousands of per
sons who thronged the terraces occurred
these utterances : ' 'Our ' success in the gub
ernatorial contest , however , is marred by the
shadow of national disaster. In common
with every true democrat , I greatly regret
the defeat of President Cleveland in this
state and In the nation. Ho deserved better
at the hands of tha people of this country.
Honest , bravo and courageous , he gallantly
led his party in the great contest for tariff re
form , und suffers defeat , owing to false
clamor , unjustjprejudices , ' unfair represent
ations and the gigantic and combined efforts
of all the monopolies of the country. He did
his duty , as ho understood it , regardless of
personal or political considerations , and ho
should have been sustained by thu tax
payers , consumers and masses of the people ,
whose true interests ho desired to subserve
und whoso rights ho unselfishly endeavored
to maintain. It is not necessary or profitable
to inquire whether the issue which ho so
boldly tnado might not moro wisely have
been earlier presented or postponed to a
later period. It Is sufficient to say that as
the trusted leader of the democratic party ,
after a full and careful consideration of the

loudly cheered , Ho said that Lord Hurting-

recently said that the homo rule question

Mr. Gladstone illustrated nt length the in-
oqalitics in the laws under which the Irish
suffer , cspucinlly the laws dealing with com-
inutions , public meetings , and the prison
: roatmeht of political offenders. Lord
llartinglon , ho said , charged the liberals
with thu responsibility for the evictions in
Ireland. The responsibility in reality bo-
.ongs . to those who refuse to give to the Irish
: onant the relief from arrears that had been
jlvon to the Highland tenant.
When Mr , Gladstone referred to the two
wings of the liberal party for the purpose of
denouncing the broken pledges of the dissi
dents , some one in the hall shouted , ' 'Ono
wing has no feathers 1" This sully was
greeted with much laughter.
Mr. Gladstone wont over the old ground
of the historyof the union. He .said that at
the oloso of the lust century the Protestants
and Catholics In Ireland Joined hands , but
the tory wire-pullers made it their business
to introduce , mainly through Orange , lodges ,
religious animosity and intolerance between
them , In conclusion , ho asked what
the dissidents could look for except speedy
extinction. Could they reasonably expect
Irishmen , under the present favorublo cir
cumstances , to change opinions thut had
been hold for seven centuries ? Why persist
in such n hopeless battle now that Ireland
wus lighting not with threats of separation
nor Fenian lam , but with confidence in a
powerful party whoso irrevocable decision
she knew was supported by the affection of
England ? It would bo bettor to endeavor
to promote and consolidate the affection that
was ready to burst from every Irish heart
und voico.
Mr. Gladstone resumed bis sent after
ppcaking for nearly two hours. The close
of his address wus the signal for prolonged
cheering. Sir William Vernon Harcourt
proposed a vote of thanks to Mr , Gladstone ,

was adopted. Mr. Gladstone made a brief

A "Woman Driven Insane Br thfe Ex-
CniCAfJO , Nov. 8. [ Special Telegram to
TUB 13KB. ] There was n remarkable , case
this morning among the unfortunates who
were brought into the insane court. Mrs.
Sadie Walters , a well dressed und comely
woman , twenty-eight years old , was ad
judged insane and will be sent to an asylum.
She is the wife of Joseph C. Walters , a
traveling salesman. The witnesses in tbo
case were the husband , George Stung , u
brother of the lady , and a Mrs. Peterson , a
friend of tbo family. Both the brother and
husband testified that in their opinion Mrs.
Walters' insanity had been caused by the
excessive use of cigarettes. She hud been
ailing for a year , and about five months ago
begun to show signs of derangement and on
Sunday night last she became violent , and
Mr. Stung had her removed to the detention
hospital for the insane. In court Mrs.
Walters was quiet , and she sat in bur chair
before the Jury Jauuhing ut the testimony
given by her friends. From the testimony
in court , and the statements of the husband
und brother made subsequently , it appears
that about two years ago Mrs. Walters suf
fered from hay fever. She was recom
mended to try cubeb cigarettes , which she
did. From this use she contracted the habit
of using the tobacco kind , and the desire for
them became so strong that she smoked al
most constantly. Her friends admonished
her and tried to induce her to quit the prac
tice , but without avail. When she wus
brought to the Jail a package ot the noxious
things , nearly full , wus found in her pocket.
