This v%s followed by denunciations from Love, who declared that no man of honor would pull a dog's tail. A general fight ensued, In which Love's father-in-law, brother, and brother in-law were seriously and probably fa tally wounded by Uira. He himself received TTslight wound. The weapon used by Love was a Colt's navy revolver. One of the other men was armed with a 6inall posted. The affair creates great excitement in the neighborhood In which it occurred.

OHIO CLOSE. Returns Favor Demo cratic Success. BRILLIANT OUTLOOK. Hoadly's Election Almost Cer tain. THE OTHER CONTESTS. IOWA REPUBLICAN BY A RE DUCED MAJORITY. The Republican Gains In Ohio Not Large Enough to Overcome Last Tear*« Demo cratic Majority—Tho Prohibition Vote* Both parties claimed Ohio by a small ma jority, last night, bat the drift of the re* tarns seemed to indicate a partial, if not a complete, Democratic Tlctory. Despatches to the late edition of to-day's Gazette will doubtless tell the fall story. Meanwhile, a summary of the result, aa given In tho morn ing papers, is published : [New York World Special*. ] Cincinnati, Oct. 9.—-Hamilton county will give Hoadly from 8,0(H) to 4,000 ma jority and at midnight the returns able to Hoadly in the whole State, though the majority is not likely to be more than 10,000 either way. The Legislature returns are meagre, but hopeful to tbe Democrats, Jons K. McLean, Editor of the Enquirer. FROM COLUMBUS. favor Cblumbus, O., Oct. 9.—The battle to day has never been approached in general interest, and tbe largest vote was polled of any contest in the State sinco the war. The campaign closed with no appreciable ad vantage on either side, the Republicans claiming the election of Foraker by a small majority, while the Democrats were san guine of giving Hoadly by the same majority that Secretary Newman received last fall. The temperance agitation that has swept the State had the effect of giving tbe canvass a most unwelcome uncertainty, and witnin the past few days neither party were very loud in their boasts of wbat they ex pected to do. Th* dav was a beautiful one, and from present indications an unprece dented vote was polled. Telegrams received by both committees during the day were to the effect that every body was voting, and this fact tended to encourage Republicans, who have claimed that on a large poll tbe State would be car ried by that party. In ^w'umbua the fight centered on the Legislature, it being admit ted that Hoadly would have at least 2,000 majority here. THE GOOD NEWS. Telecrams were received from Cincinnati early in the evening predicting 12,000 major ity for Hoadly in Hamilton county. One came Irom Cuyulioga predicting3,000 major ity, with the complete success of the Demo cratic legiblative ticket in both counties. This was the first news received, and the Democrats were jubilant, foreshadowing as it did, the Hoadly. were in the Board of Trad-» rooms, Hon. John G. Thompson presiding, and as the telegrams were received the enthusiastic Democrats yelled themselves hoarse. The Republicans held the fort in the City Hall, Chairman Oglevec presiding. On ac count of the heavy vote returns came in slowly aud lor several hours no definite in formation as to the final result could be gained. Alternate Democratic and Repub lican gains ran through all reports and It was 10 o'clock before any news of valr.e was received. The first computation of seven precincts from different part* of tbe fit ate showed a Democratic gain of 1,281. In the first ten precinota Second Amendment had a majority of 1,078. triumphant election of Judge lie Democratic headquarters FROM CLEVELAND. Cleveland, ()., Oct. 9. —The weather has been warm aud pleasant to-day and the excitement over the election was greater than Been in teu years. The fight has been very close. Much scratching of tickets and trading of votes was noticed in both the city and county. W. G. Rose, Republican candidate for Lieuteuant-Governor, developed unusual strength iu all localities in this city. Many Irish Democrats worked for him at the poils. The vote is the largest ever polled in the city or county aud as far âf heard from everything has been orderly in the northern Ohio towns. At the Thirteenth ward polls this morn ing two Republican ticket peddlers were ar rested for distributing illegal tickets in the interest of 8. C. Burnett, Republican candi date for Representative. One of them was Burnett's bookkeeper. TOE ISSUE AND THE VOTE. Columbus, O., Ôct. 9.—Th© election to : day was for State offices entire, with tho ex ception of Secretary of State, and for mem bers of the Legislature—which will elect a United States Senator to succeed Pendle ton. The election to-day was also on the ption or rejection of three amendments he Constitution, as follows: The first pro csed amendment is intended to reorganize the judiciary of State; the other two proposed amendments relate to liquor traffic and are in the iollowing lan guage: First—''The additional section," in and with section 18 oi the schedule, shall be pealed, and there shall be substituted for it the following: The General Assembly, State of Ohio, shall regulate the traffic iu intoxicating liquors so as to provide against evils result ing therefrom; aud its power to levy taxes or assessments thereupon is not limited by any provision of this constitution. The other proposed amendment is as fol lows: Second—" the additional section"— in und with section t igliteen of the schedule shall be repealed, and theie shall be substi tuted for it the following: ''The manufacture of and thç traffic In In toxicating liquors to be us xl as a beverage ere forever prohibited and the General As sembly shall provide by law for the enforce ment of the provision." Amendments to the constitution to carry must receive a majority of all votes cast for Governor. The comparison of returns to night will be made with the vot© for Secre tary of State, Newman. Returns from 165 wards and precincts show a net Republican gain of 1,186 in a to tal vote ol 34 438. The first amendment re cel vtd 5,279 and the second 18,620 votes. Few returns have beet received from the large cities. 11 p. m.—The returns from 201 wards and ado to t precinta «how a net KepubJlcan gain of 1,340 votre In a total of 47,807. 12.10 a. m.— Returns from <301 wards and precincts show a net Republican gain 1,404 in a total vote of 100,002. The first amendment received 14,400 and tlic second 51,193 votes. Cleveland, O., Oct. 0.—Seven wards and townships In Cuyahoga county, show a net Republican goln of over 400. ond amendment will certainly carry In this county. Warren gives a Republican majority of 364, a net Democratic gain of 1110. The second amendment Is carried in the city by 25 majority. This will make Trumbull county give a majority of several hundred for the second amendment. DaWon, O., Oct. 9.—At this hour—11 p. m —it is safe to say that the entire Demo cratlc county ticket Is elected. There are slight Republican gains all round. A heavy vote was cast for the second amendment. Cincinnati, Oct. 9.—An enormous vote county. Irom at of The sec baa. been polled in thia Only five precinct. had 10 p. m. Tbe returns give a net Republican gain of 202. Both parties claim the county. The reform Democratic vote was small, probably not exceeding 1,500 votes. The Republicans claim largegalnsinthe German wards, and say that Foraker will overcome Newman's minority of last year, which was Democrats are equally hopeful that they have carried the entire county and State ticket. Information is not yet at hand on which to base an Intelligent or inton. Midvioijt. —Indications from official re turns of Hamilton county at this hour are that Iloadly will have not less than 3,000 majority; that the entire Highland House Democratic ticket ha* been elected, with possibly one or two exceptions on county officers, and that the Prohibition amendment has received a larger vote than any one tlcfpated. This estimate Is bated on the general tenor of the very lew official returns In from the 95 precincts In the county. Columbus, O., Oct. 9.—Forty-one wards and precincts show a net Republican gain of 446 In a total vote of 6,127. The same ratio of gall s will give Foraker 5,000 majority. The Indications are for a close contest. The second amendment has 2,450 majority in the above precincts. Secretary Newman had a majority of 19, 115 last year. There are 1,819 wards ar.d precincts in the 8tate. Returns from 24 wards and precincts show a net Republkan gain of 291. Tho First amendment gets 325, and the second 1,916, out of 3,089 votes. The returns are nearly all from country precincts and small towns. Fifty .four wards and product* show a net Republican gain of 557, out of a total of 10,417. The first amendment gets 1,394 and the second 5,840. On* hundr-d wards and precincts, show a net Republican gain of 682 In a total vote of 22,032. The first amendment received 2,880 and the second 11,369 votes. (Hamilton) been heard 10,689. Tbe BOMB LATE ESTIMATES. [Baltimore Sun Specials.] Columbus, Ocfc. 9.—11.80 p. m.—Returns are coming in very slowly. Calculations based on those received at 11 o'clock disap point both parties, and are not regarded as giving a fair idea of the result. The Repub lican hopes from the rural districts are not realized, for from 600 wards and precincts, representing one-ninth of the State, and quite half of them from rural district, where Immense Republican gains were promised, the gains make tbe Republicans still several thousand votes short of overcoming the Democratic majority. On the other band the few returns from Cincinnati, where, according to Democratic calculations, an immense majority was tobe polled, indicate Republican gains, and the Republican chairman telegraphs that the German wards did not, after all, snow Foraker heavily under. Word comes from Cleveland that no returns may be expected belore midnight. Cincinnati will probably be equally slow. This indicates free use of the pencil on ballots. Midnight indications from official returns of Hamilton county at this hour are that Hoadly will bave not less than 3,000 major ity; that the entire Highland House Demo cratic ticket has been elected, with possibly one or two exceptions, on county officers, and that the prohibition amendments have received a larger vote than anyone antici pated. This estimate is based on the general tenor of the very few official returns In Irom the 95 precincts in the county. If the ratio of returns to midnight is kept up the Democrats will cairy the »tato. One sixth or tho State shows Republican net gains of but 1,658. They ought to reach at least 3,500 to meet the Republican expecta tion, for they cover fully half of the rural districts, on which tho Republicans had de pended to elect Foraker. At this writing the Democrats will win by 9,000 majority if they can hold the majorities at Cincinnati and Cleveland, which are only beginning to come in. Returns from eight wards in those cities, however, 6how a net Republican gain of 500. Returns from 12 voting precincts ij Day ton give a net Democratic gain of 95. .Only six more precincts are to heard from, HAMILTON COUNTY. Cincinnati, Oct. 9.— The veto of this election, as indicated soon alter the close of the polls by unofficial returns from a few city precincts, will prove to be the largest ever polled here. Reports from the country give the same indications,and these are supported by returns from a few points in other parts of Southern Ohio. The strength developed by the prohibition amendment Hamilton county astonished everybody. In the German wards, second amendment tickets, printed in German, were held at the polls along with holders of anti-prohibition tickets. TLe early unofficial returns were displayed by the Lincoln Club by stereopti con. Indications from other parts of Southern Ohio, as far as received at this hour, Governor. movement In that the vote will be very close for IOWA. The Republicans Victorious, Though Not by and "Old Time Majority. " Des Moines. Iowa, Oct. 9.— -The weather was fine all over the State to day, being warm and clear, a condition which had always favored the Republicans. A very heavy vote wa6 polled everywhere, and everything was orderly, although thefe was a very deep feeling on all sides. During the morning there was a report of a fusion in several portions of the State on the Demo cratic aud Greenback tickets, but these re ports could be traced to no certain au thority. In Des Moines a very fccavy vote was polled, but very quietly. A great many ladles were at work and had lunches and coffee near the polls.
