Elected Governor of Kentucky, i - The Result In Detail. New York, Nov. 6. State elections were held yesterday in 12 states and one territory (Utah) but in only six of the states were governors elected. Though this is what is termed an off year, the elections were important, particularly as showing the relative voto of the two prin cipal parties in the year preceding a presi dential campaign. The following is tho result in the va rious states: States. . Pluralities. New York, Republican 71,000 New Jersey, Republican 20,000 Pennsylvania, Republican 150,000 Ohio, Republican 75,000 Maryland, Republican 20,000 Massachusetts, Republican 75,000 Iowa, Republican 75,000 Illinois, Republican 30.000 Kentucky, Republican 10,000 Mississippi, Democratic 30,000 Nebraska, Republican 15,000 NEW YORK. The Empire State Elects Republican Offl cers and Legislature. A LB Ax Y, Nov. 6. New York has not added another landslide record to the fa mous ones of the past two years. The par ty which came in power by one of these landslides is not, by the vote of yesterday, dismissed, as was predicted, except as re lates to a few municipalities. The state officers elected two years ago by tho Re publican party have been re-elected, and two branohos of the legislature remain, as before, under the direction- of the Repub licans. The election throughout the state was orderly and rapidly conducted, and the results Were so quickly compiled that all the talk about the difficulty of han dling the blanket ballot wont for naught. So far as the success or failure of the blanket ballot was concerned, the advices from all over tho state show that there was little or no trouble, and that the bal lot was so much of a success that the vote was polled quickerthan ever before. At an early hour it was apparent that the Democratic gain, while considerably over tho vote of 1893 and 1894, was not sufficient to carry tho state. Some of those earlier, returns stowed a rather signifi cant fact, so far as New York city was concerned, and that was that while there was a large increaso in the Democratic voto over tho past two years there was not tho same percentage of loss to bo attribut ed to the Republican ticket and this fact was also evident In tho districts received early in the night from outside some of the big cities. This was accounted for by the fact that the Democratic vote of 1S93 had been greatly reduced by people of that party remaining away from the polls. Tho following are the state officers elect ed: Secretary of State John Palmer. Comptroller James A. Roberts, i Treasurer Addison B. Colvin. Attorney General Theodore E. Han cock. - State Engineer and Surveyor Camp bell W. Adams. i Associate Judge of Court of Appeals Celora E. Martin. The legislature will be strongly Repub lican. Of the 50 senators elected 3 are Republicans, 13 Democrats and 1 Inde pendent Republican. The Republicans have elected 109 assemblymen and the Democrats 41. Nyack, Nov. 6. Rockland county gives a Republican majority, and Senator Lex ow is re-elected. Utica,Nov. G. Henry J. Coggeshall has been elected senator for the Thirty-fourth district by an approximate majority of 8,500. New York, Nov. 6. Returns from the counties north of tho Harlem river give Palmer (Rep.), for secretary of state, 344,709, King (Dem.) 224,715, a Repub lican plurality of 119,994 outside of New York and Kings county, showing a Re publican gain of 26,333 compared with 1893. The gains over the vote of 1893, when the present Republican state officers wero first candidates, were made chiefly in the Interior of the state. Despite the fact that the Democratic party carried New York citv by a plurality of 42,000, there was a ; relative gain for tho Republicans, as com pared with 1S93, .when the Democratic state ticket carried the city by 67,000 plu rality. In Kincs county, however, the Democrats made a positive gain over 1893, when the Republican state candidates had a plurality amounting to 7,000 votes. This year the Democrats appear to have carried the county by a plurality of 5,000 The Republican party eleoted a majori ty of its candidates for the legislature. It looks as though the senate would have as its members 37 Republicans, 12 Democrats and 1 Independent Henry J. Coggeshall, who had a Democratic indorsement. In tho assembly there will be 107 Republic ans and 43 Democrats. This gives the Re publicans a majority on -joint ballot of 88 votes. The term of office of David B. Hill as United States senator will expire in 1897 The Republican senators just elected will vote for Mr. Hill's successor. With a Re publican majority of 25 in the senate al ready assured, Mr. Hill must manage to elect 89 Democratic assemblymen in 1896 In order to be re-olected. This would give him 89 assomblymen and 13 senators, if Coggeshall should vote for him, or a tota of 102 votes, and the Republican party would be in the minority, with 37 sena tors and 61 assemblymen, or with a tola vote of only 99 on joint ballot. Mr. Hill, therefore, will have to increase the Dem ocratio vote In the assembly of 1896 to 89 votes, or to make a gain in the fall of 189S The following is the estimated plurali ties of the state ticket by counties: Palmer.

New Jersey elected a governor, seven state senators and tho lower branch of the state legishv ture. The candi dates for govern or were Alexan der T. MoGill (Dem.), John W. Griggs (Rep.), William B. Ellis (Pop.), Henry W, Wilber (Pro.) and Joseph B. Keim (Socialist-La bor). Important state issues were involved, and the campaign was J. W. GRIGGS. hotly fought. The Republicans made their fight largely on the exposure of certain alleged frauds in connection with the statehouse, and the Republican position on the excise ques tion furnished ammunition for tho Demo crats. .lohn w. unggs nas Deen elected gov ernor of New Jersey with a Republican plurality of 20.000 votes. This is his tri umph in a state which in the preceding election for. governor gave a plurality of 7,625 to Werts, the Democratic nominee. In the counties considered doubtful, if not positively Democratic, Mr. Griggs ran ahead of his ticket. The Republicans swept the state in a way that surprised even the most san cuine members of the party. The normal Democratic counties of Union, Middlesex, Morris and Sussex gave Republican ma- iorities and returned Republican assem blymen. Tho next assembly will contain an over whelmine Republican majority of Its 60 members, and the senate also will be Re publican. There will be at least. 40 Repub lican members of the assembly.

Philadelphia, Nov. 6. Returns Indi cate that Benjamin J. Haywood (Rep.) has been elected treasurer by 150,000 plu rality, a Republican gain over 1893, which was also an off year, of about 15,000. This 6tate also elects seven judges of tho new superior court Of these the six Republic ans nominated James A. Beaver, Ed ward N. Willard, John J. Wickham, Charles E. Rioe, Howard J. Reeder.George B.

William w. ueary, wno is regarded as David Martin's representative on the tic- set, was cut to some extent, but not as much as had been expected. 1 OHIO. The Buckeye State Elects a Republican Governor and Legislature. Columbus. Nov. 6. There was an un usually hot . fighfc in Ohio, and the cam paign was ex tremely spirited. ending in the elec tion of Asa Bush nell for governor and the entire Re publican state ticket. State ofll cers were elected, and also members of the state legis lature, which will : choose " a senator to succeed Calvin S. Brlce, whose term of office ex pires on March 3, 1897. The gubernatorial candidates were James E. Campbell (Dem.), Asa S. Bush nell (Rep.), Jacob S. Coxey of common weal fame (People's Party) and Seth II. Ellis (Pro.). Early in the evening it was thought that tho tidal wave of tho past two years had continued in Ohio, although no esti mates would be given. The Democratic 6tate committee, in comparing tho vote with that of last year, when the Republic an plurality was 137,000, 6hows Dem ocratic gains, but not enough for them to claim any close result on the state ticket or more than one-third of tho members of the legislature. The Republicans, in comparing the vote with that for McKinley and Neal for gov ernor two years ago, claim that they wil approximate the plurality of .SO.UUO ro ceived by McKinley and have two-thirds of the legislature. At their headquarters they say they have polled a much larger vote than In 1893. and that tho Democrats polled a much larger vote than that year. The total voto is about 850,000, the largest ever cast in the state. The Republicans say their plurality win not iau ceiow 00,000. While the high water mark of 137,000 Republican plurality last year for secre tary of state will not bo reached, the Re publican starve committee claim that their record will be broken on the vote for gov ernor. The highest Republican plurality for governor heretofore was that of John Brough over Clement L. Vallandlgham in 1863, when the latter was a refugee in Canada. The Republicans claim this plu rality will bo surpassed, and tho Dem ocratic state committee Conceded tho state to the Republicans at 11 o'clock last night, when they closed their headquar ters, by 80,000, or as much as the plurali ty of two years ago. Chairman Anderson of the Democratic committee had no figures to give out on the legislature. Chairman Kurtz of the Republican state committee states that the Republican plurality eleoted 77 out of 113 members of the house of representatives and 27 out oi the 37 members of the sen ate, a majority of 47 on joint ballot for senator. Ex-Congressman Charles Manderson, chairman of tho Democratic committee, gave out the following: "We concede the state to the Republic ans by eo.uou plurality ana ootn branch es of the legislature by a large majority. The Populist vote of over 60,000 for Cox ey for governor hurt Us. The hard times were too fresh in the minds of tho people to be forgotten, and this led to our defeat." MASSACHUSETTS. As Usual the Old Say State Eleots a Repub lican Gorernor. Boston, Nov. 6. Massachusetts elected I Its full list of state officers and legislature and a representa tive in congress from the Sixth district to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Wil liam Cogswell (Rep.), who was elected in Novem ber last. The can didates for gov ernor were Fred erick T. Green halge (Rep.), for T. T. GREENHALGE. re-election; George Fred Williams (Dem.), Eldridge Gerry Brown (People's Party) ind Edward Kendall (Pro.). The people ' 3f Massachusetts qualified to vote for school committee, which inoludes the women, also voted upon the question whether it is expedient that municipal suf frage be granted to women. The political battle of 1S95 in Massa chusetts is over. The ballots have been counted, and the result is as pleasing to the Republicans and their candidates as t is distasteful to tho friends of the Dem ocratic party. .The question from the first was ono of majority, since the Democratic leader admitted the re-election of Govern or Greenhalge. How strong his indorse ment would be was the point upon which the two parties differed. Results show that the claims of the Republicans, mado prior to tho election, were well grounded, since Governor Greenhalge and the entire Republican ticket is indorsed by a plural- ty practically the same as that of 1S94. The legislative department of the gov ernment is also olidly Republican. 33 of the 40 senators elected being of. that po litical belief. This is a slight gain for the Democratic party, the senate last year having stood 36 Republicans and 4 Dem ocrats. In tho house of representatives the Re publicans have practically the same ma jority as last year, which was an over whelming one. The governor's council will contain but one Democrat as an ad viser in the executive chamber. In brief, the result is a clean sweep for the Repub lican party in tho state. The hopes cf tho friends of female suf frage have been burled beneath an ava lanche of ballots. Hardly a town that vot ed shows a majority in favor of the propo sition to grant suffrage to women in mu nicipal affairs. A fair estimate of the re sult would be 3 votes against female suf frage to 1 in its favor. KENTUCKY. The Tote Is Very Close, but Bradley (Rep.) Is Probably Eleoted. . Louisville, Nov. 6. The campaign find election furnished the most exciting ana vigorously fought contest that has occurred in Kentucky, in recent years. A full list of state offioers were elect ed, the Republic an candidate for governor being Colonel William O. Bradley and the Democratic Parker Wat Hard in. The Prohibi tionists and the Pnnn 1 i t;g liar! nominations, but TOlIAMa bradlet.. they were not conspicuous. The Kentuck ians also elected a state legislature, which elects a United States senator to succeed Joseph C. S.

MARYLAND. The Republicans Elect Lloyd Lowndes as the Chief Executive. Baltimore, Nov. 6. Yesterday's elec- tion ends an unusually vigorous and some what acrimonious political struggle in this state. It has been intensely sultry in Mary land. The guber natorial candi dates were John E. Hurst (Dem.), Lloyd Lowndes (Rep.), Henry F. Andrews (Peo ple's Party) and Joshua Levering (Pro.). Besides LLOYD lowsdes. the other state officers comptroller and attorney general there were elected members of the legislature, which will chooso a United States senator to succeed Charles H. Gibson (Dem.), whose term will expire on March 3, 1897. The Repub licans mado a heroic effort to oarry tho Etate, while the Democrats were seriously divided by a factional quarrel between the Gorman and anti-Gorman elements of the Domocratic parry. The Herald of this morning concedes Lowndes' (Rep.) election, and says his majority in the state may reach 20,000. It also concedes the election of a Repub lican legislature, which insures a Repub lican successor to United States Senator Gibson, and says the entire Republican state and city ticket is elected by good majorities. UTAH. Statehood Wins, and Republican Offioers v Are Elected. OGDE3T, U. T., Nov. 6.- Reports mostly from railroad towns show small Repub lican majorities. Salt Lake, Park City and Ogden have elected Republican city tickets without a doubt. The indications are that the territorial legislature will be Republican by a small majority, insuring the election of Republican senators. Al len (Rep.), for representative, is probably defeated by Roberts (Dem.) by a small margin. The state officers are still In not be doubt, and the majorities will large. The vote against the constitution has been large in the cities, but not sufficient to defeat statehood. Populists were ac tive, but their voto was not up to expecta tions. No Prohibition vote. " In general the results obtainable are discouraging to the Republicans, as com pared with the walkover conceded to them a week ago. IOWA. Republicans Elect Colonel Drake by st Large Majority. Des Moines, Nov. 6. The Republican gains over two years ago are nearly 24 to a precinct. This will give Drake (Rep.) for governor a plurality of over 80,000 if tho present rate of gain is continued. Republican state committee claims state by 80,000 or over. The committee claims legislature bf two-thirds majority. The indications are that the Populista 6, 1895. have made large gains all over the state, their total vote being something like 50,000. Virginia. Richmond, Nov. 6. The election in Virginia, which was for half the senate (20) and the whole membership of the house (100), has brought about some sur prises. The indications are that the Dem ocrats have lost half a dozen senatorial districts and a number of house districts which had been counted upon as safe. There is, however, no question that the Democrats have the legislature, and pos sibly two-thirds of the two houses. The issue upon which the contest was fought was for a change in the present election laws. It is said that among the Democrat ic candidates for the house is Dan Lee of Stafford, a brother of General Fitz Hugh Lee, who was defeated for the same place In the contest of 1881. Illinois. Chicago, Nov. 6. The Republicans carried the election by pluralities of about 30,000 on the entire ticket. Ball, the Re publican candidate for judge of supreme court, has defeated Morrison (Dem.) by 40, 500. The Republicans elected five of the trustees for the 30,000,000 drainage canaL Mississippi. J ACKS05T, Miss., Nov. 6. The Dem ocratic majority over the Populists for btate officers in Mississippi is 50,000, thus electing D. J. McLaurin as governor. Michigan. Detroit, Nov. 6. Mayor Plngreewas elected for his fourth term by upward of 10,000 plurality over Goldwater (Dem.) His majority is over 5,000 greater than two years ago. : From Oral to Written Story. Herbert Snencer in The Contemnorarv Eeview works up that long past period whence by transition there came biog- rapuciB, uisiunauB, yueia uiu uuveubis. i mamI. j ir xne remote ancestors oi juacaniay, xen- nyson, nawtnorne, xreBcott, the primi tive orators, poets or musicians, sat around the campfire after the chase or the fight was over, and they chatted. There was not any introspection nor re trospection, as we use tho latter term to day. It was present human action which interested them. The hunter told of the hard fight he had had with toothed bear or the elephant ; another, a warrior, told how ho had brained hia foe with hia stone ax or mace, and unquestionably there were much bragging and boasting. This was the first state. Then came ref erence to the deeds of a man's father or his great-grandfather, and the group around the fire heard something like bi ography. Man naturally takes an easy subject to talk about, and the audience understands it. These aro matters com- prehensiblo by the . lowest intelligence. .' it was the stories of adventures which excited and pleased listeners, just as we like Stevenson today. Unquestionably ; tho old women spun their yarns. Then came in time tho further development, and the priest poets had their say. First Burning of Heresy In England. It is quite certain that there wero ! several cases of burning for heresy in England bef ore 1401. This question is i discussed in the preface of Arnold's ?di i tion of Wyclirs works," and lit l re i member rightly, for I have no present means of reference) in the preface to my I edition of the third text (C text) of "Piers the Plowman. " William Sautre ;' was tho first person burned for heresy i. under tho new act passed in the begin- ning of the reign of Henry IV. All that this act did was to facilitate the proc . ess. Before it was passed tho ecclesiastics ' who condemned the heretics were pow erless to carry cut the sentence them selves. They had to hand over the crim inal to the secular arm. The now act did away with this necessity, and so rendered the criminal's fate the more swift and certain. And that was all tho difference; hence the popular notion that no one was burned before 1401 is a mere delusion. Notes and Queries. ' Queen Victoria's Tasto In Flays. I suspect that the queen would be a much more frequent patron of the drama were it not that so few plays produced in recent years have been suitable for pres entation at court. To obtain the entree, a play has to have as clean a record as a debutante, and it must be admitted that plays have very rarely come up to that description of late. Of plays with a pur pose, the queen ha3 a wholesome horror. Her majesty has almost as great an ob jection to make the acquaintance of wo men with a past on tho stage as in real life. The kind of play most to her maj esty's liking is a broad comedy, with a good dab of sentiment in it. 1A11 tho Guelphs have a big vein of sentiment in their . composition, and if anything Queen Victoria has moro than her proper share. London Figaro. Schlegel's Conceit. "Here is a pleasant trait of amour propre supplied me by Schlegel. One day he read me a letter he had addressed to one of his friends Shortly afterward I happened to see that the friend had died. I spoke of it to Schlegel, who re plied, 'Yes, he is dead ; but, however, he had time to receive my letter before dy ing. ' As if, comments Constant, the destination of the friend had been above all to read Schlegel's letter, and that having read the letter, he might depart in peace.'

Surpassing In Splendor tne Other Inter national Marriages of the Tear Profos and Exquisite Floral Decorations Ulcb, and Beautiful Gifts. New York, Nov. . The wedding of Ihe Duke of Marlborough and Miss Con luelo Vanderbilt closed in splendor a year that must long be famous in the social history of two worlds for the brilliancy of Its international marriages. Tho ceremony which made the richest heiress of America amember of the historic house of Marlborough took place In St. Thomas' Episcopal churoh, the fashionable worshiping place on Fifth avenue, whose pastor is the Rev. Wesley Brown, D. D. The floral decorations of the ohurch cen tered from the top of . the dome, 90 feet above the chancel. From the center of this dome ropes and streamers qf flowers ex tended along each support of the dome - a Kosa. Tha north and south pillars of the chancel were covered with flowers, and the chanoel itself was banked with palms and potted plants. Spanning the steps leading to the altar a floral arch was erected. Every one of the pillars in the body of the church wa3 entwined with flowers, and the choir loft was so decorat ed as to give the color effect of white and gold. The walls of the vestibule forming the rear of the audience room of the church was solidly banked with flowers. Each pew had a floral entrance. The music was of the nature of an inno vation. When it was first decided that Miss Yanderbilt's wedding should take place in St. Thomas', the ortranlst of tha J church, Dr. George William Warren, pro- ' posed a choral marriage service, the musio ; to . bo ed by the full choir of 40 , uivboi iius. v auuci uiiu uiu uvrv Ckyyijw of the suggestion, and there was no vocal music Instead tne jio was furnished by the New York Symphony orchestra of 60 pieces, personally conducted by Walter Damrosch. The orchestra was stationed in tha north gallery. An hour before the cere mony the first number of the musical pro gramme Mr. Damrosch had arranged was rendered. Following that Dr. Warren played a solo on the great double organ of the church. From then on, until the bri dal party arrived, orchestra and organ al ternated. ' The ceremony was celebrated by Bishop Potter, assisted by Bishop Littlejohn of Brooklyn and Dr. Brown. The Brooklyn bishop baptized the bride in infancy. These bridesmaids took part: Miss Marie Winthrop, daughter of Buchanan Winthrop; Miss Evelyn Burden, daugh ter of I. Town send Burden; Miss Elsa Bronson, daughter of Frederic Bromson; Miss Daisy Pjst, second daughter of Wil liam Post; Miss May Goelet, daughter of Ogden Goelet; Miss K&therine Duer, daughter of William Duer, and Miss Julia Jay, one of the daughters of Colonel Wil liam Jay. The best man was the Hon. Ivor Guest, cousin of the duke. The large church was crowded, as 4,000 invitations had been sent out. Miss Tanderbilt's Bridal Gown. Miss Consuelo's bridal gown was the richest and most expensive garment of its kind ever constructed. The material was heavy white satin of the richest qual ity, trimmed with a profusion of the rar est and costliest laces. The skirt had five flounces of point d'Angleterre lace, each ruffle being 8 inches deep. The high neck bodice and full puffed sleeves of white satin reaching to tho wrist were trimmed with double ruffles of old lace, while the soft vest of chiffon was covered with nar row lace. The collar was of lace and was finished at the back with small ends, and diamond buckles were fastened on either side. Around the waist was drawn a hrnad helt ftf man v folds of satin. The feature of tne toilet was the court train, which was attached to the shoulders and draped downward, sweeping along the floor to the length of five yards. It was trimmed with a band of embroidery 4 Inches wide set with pearls and was lined with glistening ivory satin. Satin slip pers, embroidered with pearls and silver, made up the toilet of the bride. The slip pers did not have the high Louis Qulnze heels, but low ones, because the bride did not wish to - increase her height unneces sarily, as she is taller than the duke. Tho costumes of the bridesmaids were simple but effective. The bodices and skirts wero of white satin, and pale blue sashes, which fastened in front and toward tho left side, wero worn. They had full sleeves and plain collars. Huge Gainsbor ough hats of blue velvet of the same shade as the sashes and trimmed with rfcSi plumes of the same tint were worn. . Tho ceremony at the ohurch was follow ed by a reception at the palatial residence of Mrs. W. K.vVanderbllt. Of course there was a flood of presents. Pinched as the duke is for ready cash, he wa3 able, however, to buy f 100,000 worth of presents.before leaving London for New York. The Vanderbilt relations did the best they could in the gift line, and the other multimillionaires in their circle vied with one another.
