It became evident at a very early hour this evening that the election of McKinley and Roosevelt was assured. At half past 8 o'clock re turns from nearly wo-thlrds of the elec tion districts of Greater New York had been received, indicating beyond Question that Bryan and Stevenson could not ex pect more than 23,000 or 50,000 plurality In this Democratic stronghold, and unless there was a landslide in the outside coun ties beyond all reasonable expectation, the pivotal State of New York had declared !n unmistakable terms, although by a great ly reduced majority, for the Republican candidates. As the nlsht progressed it only served to confirm this Judgment The returns from Illinois betrayed a like con dition. The Republican plurality of 1806 was greatly reduced, but It was still far too large to be overcome. On the other hnd. the returns from Indiana, Michigan, the two Dakotas, Utah e.nd Wyoming, as well as Nebraska, seemed to Indicate strong Republican gains over 1S06. Delaware, Maryland and West Virginia had given decisive Republican pluralities. The count In several of the far Western States was naturally so de layed as to give little indication of the outcome there, but they had ceased to have a determining effect and before 1C o'clock the Democratic leaders had given up the contest, and It was announced that Mr. Bryan had gone to bed and was sound asleep. The whole story was easily and briefly told. The Republican ticket would have a larger electoral vote than four years ago, but In the larger States of the East and middle West the pluralities had been greatly reduced. Massachusetts had fallen from 174,000 to SO.OOO; New York from 2&S.00O to 135,000 and Illinois from 142,000 to 100,000 or less.

PAYEE'S STATE JIEXT. lie Thin Its McKinley Villi Have 299 Votes When All Returns Are Iu. CHICAGO, Nov. 6. At 11 o'clock Vice Chairman Payne, of the Republican na tional committee. Issued the following statement: 'McKinley has surely carried all the States claimed by me, excepting possibly Kentucky, and returns indicate that we have beaten Bryan in Nebraska." There was high good humor at Republican head- Quarters all through the early part of the night and as the returns kept on in a way to add to the good feeling, the crowd that thronged the headquarters rent the air with applause and cheers. At 6:30 Mr. Payne announced that the Republicans would carry New York by 100,000. Perry WEATHER FORECAST. Fair la Southern Indiana Rain In Northern and Central Portions. WASHINGTON. Nov. 6.

C 4 14 0) 1 43 Heath came in at 7 o'clock from Indian apolis with the positive assurance his State would certainly go for McKinley by "at least 1S,000." Later arrivals at headquar ters were Richard C. Kerens, of Missouri, and Charles G. Dawes, the controller of the currency. The first complete return was from the city of Buffalo, which gave McKinley a plurality of 2,&a), something less than was anticipated. A messace from the President was re ceived by Mr. Payne, reading as follows: "All New England. Maryland and West Virginia are in the Republican column."' The hilarity rose high when a message was received saying that Sioux 1-alls, S. D., the home of Senator Pettigrew, had given McKinley a plurality of 43. There was loud laughter mingled with cries of "Good bye, Pettigrew," and Mr. Payne wired to Chairman llanna: "It's time to fill up." A dispatch, following close upon that from Sioux Falls, declaring that Congress man John J. Lentz had been beaten In Ohio, received even a more boisterous wel come. Dispatches from Bloomington stating that Stevenson's precinct had been carried by McKinley by 206 to 112 was received with great cheering, which was redoubled later on by the announcement that Bryan's pre cinct had been carried by McKinley by 20S to 103. Word was received that Vice-chairman Stone, of the Democratic committee, re fused to acknowledge the election of Mc Kinley, saying that the early returns were always in favor of the Republicans, and there was much ironical applause for Chairman Stone. News was slow from Indiana, and finally a telegram was sent to National Commit teeman New, at Indianapolis, asking for particulars. The reply came as follows: I am not going off half-cocked, but we have certainly carried Indiana by an in creased plurality over 1836." Notwithstanding the fact that the tele grams poured Into the office In a perfect stream, there was, from the first, not more than one or two that contained statements calculated to lower the hopes of the Re publican party, and they were unimpor tant. AH the rest were of a joyous char acter, and coming, as they did, from all parts of the country, they seemed to the partisans gathered around Mr. Payne's desk to foreshadow a sweeping victory for their party. "Besides the States we have already claimed," said Mr. Payne at 11 p. m., "we now hold the following: Kansas, 10; Cali fornia, with the one vote Bryan got in 1SD6; Nebraska, 8; Nevada, 3; South Da kota, 4; Utah, S; Washington, 4, and Wy oming, 3 votes, making a total of 295 elec toral votes for McKinley. To these will probably be added Kentucky, with the one vote lost four years ago, and Idaho, with three, making a total of 209 votes." By midnight the headquarters were near ly deserted, only the officials and a few en thusiastic politicians remaining. Reports confirming the defeat of Senator Pettigrew in South Dakota were received at 11:30 by Vice Chairman ' Payne and that gentleman gave vent to lively expressions of pleasure. "We, have beaten Pettigrew," he cried. waving a telegram over his head. "Send the news to llanna. He promised to cele brate with me if we beat Tettlgrew and I guess we do it. "There have been three important things in this campaign," said Mr. Payne. "First to beat Pettigrew, second to elect McKin ley, third to carry Nebraska, and we have done all three of them. I guess we are doing pretty well." i Just at this time word came from Com mitteeman New, of Indianapolis: "We have carried Indiana by CO.00O." Crowds of enthusiastic marchers tramped by the headquarters during the latter part of the evening, serenading with tin horns. The headquarters were" almost deserted after midnight and the news came more slowly. "We estimate 200 electoral votes for McKinley," said Mr. Payne, "and we will have that many or more. We have beaten Bryan again and beaten him worse than before." At Democratic Hendqunrter. CHICAGO, Nov. G. The belief prevails at the Democratic national headquarters that the battle is lost and that McKinley has been re-elected by a larger plurality than he received four years ago. Senator Jones, near whom was seated ex-Governor Altgeld, of Illinois, and ex-Governor Hogg, of Texas, was busy reading bulletins from various States and commenting upon the figures. As he read a bulletin he said: "This shows a heavy falling off for Bryan, or a heavy falling off for McKinley," but when asked to express his opinion as to the result, he said: "I do not know yet. The returns are too meager to make a predic tion." "We are going to win yet' said ex-Governor Hogg. "These figures are doctored and are the work of tho Wall-street gamblers. They do not represent the will of the people.". "I do not know how the result will look," said ex-Governor Altgeld. "The returns are not sufficienty complete to make an esti mate." While conversing with the two ex-Governors Senator ones was shown a tele gram from New York stating that W. J, Stone had conceded that State by over 100.000. His only comment was, "Well, that may be right, but I am not going to con cede anything now." The returns received at headquarters from Nebraska were not very encourag ing, and by midnight the crowd at the headquarters had thinned out so that there were less than one hundred people In the room. At midnight Senator Jones arose from the large easy chair at his desk, stretched his arms over his head, and said: "Well, I'm going to follow the example of Mr. Bryan, who told me a few minutes ago over the long-distance 'phone that he was going to bed and get a good sleep." Five minutes laUr the senator was in his room. Tressed for a statement either con cerning or claiming the election, he said: "When I come down in the morning and learn the result in Ohio, Maryland, Cali fornia, West Virginia and Indiana I can tell you what I think about It." "Do you mean that you concede New York to the Republicans?" "Well." replied the senator, "the Repub licans claim New York and It looks like they have got It, bit I am not going to concede anything to-night." "After the senator's departure ex-Governor Altgeld and ex-Governor Hogg re mained for some time at headquarters read ing bulletins to a few who still clustered about the chairman's desk, but before 1 o'clock they, too, went away, and shortly afterwards the rooms were locked up and deserted for the night. M'KIXLKY'S OWN STATES. Republicans Claim a Plurality In Ohio Of 75,000. COLUMBUS, O., Nov. 6.-McKlnley has carried his own State without doubt by an increased plurality, but at midnight it is impossible to give the figures, owing to tho unusually meager returns received. The Democrats have gained about 3,000 In Cleveland and as much In Cincinnati, and less in some other cities. The Republicans have gained in tht rural districts and in this city, in Canton, In Akron, the horn of Chairman Dick, and a few other cities. Democratic State Chairman Long concedes the State to the Republicans and expects a gain of one congressman over the last delegation from Ohio In Congress, which stood sixteen Republicans and five Demo crats. Republican State Chairman Dick stands by his poll of the State, which he insists shows from 73,000 to SO.uOO for Mc Kinley, and he insists that the Republicans will gain two or three congressmen. At this .hour the indications are that McKinley has gained largely In Ohio over his plurality of 1S:C, and that most of it came from the rural districts, with the exception of Co lumbus, Toledo, Canton, Akron, Springfield and a few other cities. Democratic Chairman Long at midnight gave out the following: "The returns from Hamilton and Cuyahoga counties show sub stantial Democratic gains.- While a ma jority of the country precincts reported fchow RcDUblican eains of 5 to a precinct. with about 120 hearU from, this ratio of gain, if kept up with corresponding Dem ocratic gains in the cities, as now indicated, will give McKinley the State about the same as lS'j. Comparisons are made on the vote of 1&06. Lentz's election to Con gress in Columbus district is reasonably sure. We have no advices from Dayton or the Twentieth district, where, we be lieve, the Democratic candidates are elected. This means a gain , of one congressman. The northeast part QX the State will show lcrge Republican gains in counties near Pennsylvania, where there has been whole sale naturalization of Finns, Hungarians and Poles, regardless of certainty of legal residence. They uniformly were voted for the Republican ticket." It will probably require an official count to determine the Twelfth congressional dis trict. Both Thompkins, Republican, and Lentzr Democrat, claim .to be elected, and returns from 415 of the precincts Indicate that neither candidate will have as much as 10O plurality. At 1:30 a. m. no changes were announced on national and state pluralities, but the Republicans claimed the election of Robert M. Nevin in the Third and Emmett Tomp kins in the Eleventh congressional dis tricts, leaving only the Twentieth district in doubt, in which the Republicans have two candidates. Chairman Dick claimed tho Twentieth district at that hour and held that the Republicans would elect sev enteen of tho twenty-one congressmen, with a chance for tbe eighteenth Republic an member on reports from the Fifth dis trict, in which Snook, Democrat, and Hay, Republican, are the candidates. Complete returns in Columbus give Mc Kinley 17.613, Bryan 14.15f). McKinley's plu rality 3,456, a gain of 2S8 compared with 1S06. Hamilton County's Vote. CINCINNATI, Nov. 6.-IIamilton county, twenty precincts out of 253 give McKinley 3,277, Bryan 2,836. Same in 1S96 gave Mc Kinley 3.4C7, Bryan 3.0C2.

NEBRASKA REDEEMED. Fnslonlstn Defeated Probably by 2,000 to 8.000 Flurallty. OMAHA, Neb., Nov. 6. At midnight 200 precincts out of 1,611 in the State had re turned results of to-day's election, thirty of these being from Omaha and Douglass county. A majority of them give Repub lican gains, which, if they hold good throughout the State, would Indicate a Re publican plurality of from 2,000 to 5,000 However, the fuslonlsts say these returns are not significant of the real results, that the outlying districts will overcome these gains and give the State tp Bryan by from 5,000 to 8,000. Tho result of the vote on the national ticket will, no doubt, also deter mine the victories on the State ticket, both running very close together in nearly all cases. Although not a factor, the Prohlbi tlon ticket shows a gain tover four years ago. It will require a pretty full count to determine the complexion or the Legisla ture. and both tides are claiming a major ity on joint ballot. Chairman Hall, of the Democratic State central committee, was reticent with re gard to the result, and refused to give any tigures. Chairman Lindsay, of the Repub lican State central committee, said all the returns indicated a complete Republican victory, with a plurality of from 8,000 to 10.000 for McKinley, with no definite returns or. tho State ticket and the Legislature. The state ticket is running about the same a3 the national candidates Twenty one precincts In the city of Omaha give .McKinley 3.U.JJ. isryan .'.usj.

Bryan "Was Sleepy Lnst Mgltt. LINCOLN, Neb., Nov. 7. Bryan's friends practically conceded McKinley's re-election last night. Mr. Bryan remained in hia pri vate apartments during the entire evening and clept the greater part of the time. He did not make his appearance in the parlor of his house, where the newspaper corre spondents were congregated, until 11 o'clock, and 1:1s coming at that time was lor the purpose of notifying the press that he would hav nothing to say for publica tion during the night. He added that he mlcht give out a statement to-day. After this assurance the visitors to the house withdrew, and soon afterwards the lights were extinguished and the house pre sented no signs of animation. Mrs. Bryan spent the evening entertaining her guests, and gave no sia either of fatigue or dis appointment. The feeling is quite general that Mr. Bryan will say to-day that he does not douot the election ror the second time of his rival, for. while he gave no direct utterance to su :h concession, he Indirectly admitted last nicht to friends that he did not hope for more than to reduce the Re publican majuru)' m some oi tne eastern States Precinct A, of t'j Fifth ward (Bryan's precinct) gave Mr mey, 208; Brya;j. 106. ned tn Lincoln.

McKinley Carried the City of Chlcngo as "Well as the State. CHICAGO, Nov. 7. 3 a. ro.-Complete re turns from fifteen counties In the State and partial returns from the others. Including the. full vote of Chicago, In Cook county, indicate a plurality for William McKinley that will probably exceed 90,000. Chairman Watson, of the Democratic State central committee, at that hour conceded the State to McKinley by 50,000. Returns also indi cate the electlpof the full Republican State ticket by majorities considerably un der the presidential figures, the scratching on the State ticket being confined almost entirely to Cook county, where Mr. Alschu- lers personal popularity told .heavily in favor of the Democratic nominee, so much so in fact that It is probable that the coun ty was carried for the Democratic aiaie ticket. Returns so far also Indicate that the Republicans have lost two and possibly three congressmen in Chicago, the most sensational defeat being that of William Lorlmer, one of the most prominent mem bers of the Cook county Republican or ganization, in the Second district. Out side of Cook county the congressional del egation is in doubt. The Democrats claim gains In one or two districts, but Republic an leaders assert that the delegation will remain unchanged. It is practically assured that the next Legislature, which will elect a United States senator to succeed Shelby M. Cul- lom, will be Republican on joint ballot at least, and by a sufficient majority to elect a senator. Democratic gains have been made in several legislative districts Ii Cook county, and it U claimed by Chair man Watson that the lower house will be Democratic by from 1 to 3 majority. Chairman Rowe, on the other hand, claim a working majority In both branches of tne legislature. In Chicago McKlnlev's vote of 1S96 was cut down materiallv. the total vote showing a plurality of 8,44tJ, hardly a quarter of what it was rour years ago. The Prohibition ana Social Democratic votes, which were ex pected to cut into the strength of the big parties, did not cut much figure. Wool- ley's total vote In Chicago was 3,335 and that of Debs 5.022. Barker, the middle-of-the-road Populist candidate, received but 189 votes out of a total of over 302,000. Returns on tho legislative and county tickets came in very slowly. On the latter tne vote ran close and the election was claimed by both parties. One of the most bitter fights of the election wras over Lloyd J. Smith, candidate for drainage trustee, who was acquitted on Monday of a charge of manipulating warehouse grain receipts. bmith received much Democratic support and is probably elected. The Democrats claim a gain of eight members of the Legis lature, while the Republicans concede five. It may take the official count to decide the result in several districts. Streeter Electa Himself. CHICAGO, Nov. a An election was held to-day In the so-called district of Lake Michigan, a portion of the lake front claimed by Captain George W. Streeter, over which there has ben much con tention with tho city authorities. Streter was elected district representative by his followers, and declares than on March 4 he will go before h? committee on privi leges and elections of the national House of Representatives, and that ho will en deavor to be seated as the legitimate rep resentative of the 'district" in Congress. Stevenson' Home Precinct. BLOOMINGTON, 111., Nov. 6. In Adlai E. Stevenson's home precinct the vote was McKinley, 305; Bryan, 112. KENTUCKY IX DOUBT. Both Republicans and Democrats Claim the State. LOUISVILLE, Ky., Nov. 6. At midnight the result of the election In Kentucky was In doubt, with both sides claiming the State and presidential tickets. The Democrats may be considered to have a trifle the better of the. argument. Ex-Governor J. B. McCreary, chairman 0 the Democratic State campaign committee, said: "Bryan and Beckham have carried Ken tucky by safe majorities. The Democrats have elected nine out of eleven congress men, including Gilbert, of the Eighth, Kehoc, of the Ninth, and Rhea, of -the Third district." Chairman Leslie Combs, of the Repub lican campaign committee, said: "Official returns from twenty-eight counties have been received. In three counties, Beck ham, for Governor, has gained 1.033 over Goebel last year, while Yerkes has gained 1,302 over Taylor in the same counties last year. Jefferson county (Louisville) is not Included in this estimate. This indicates that Yerkes has been elected by a safe majority. In the presidential race Mc Kinley has probably run 1,200 behind Yerkes in the same counties. The Courier-Journal at midnight says re turns from two-thirds of the counties In the State now show Bryan and Beckham majorities. The result will depend on the size of the majority in the Eleventh con gressional district, which is heavily Repub lican. At 4:15 a. m., the Courier-Journal says Bryan and Beckham have carried Ken tucky by good majorities. Democratic Gains. LOUISVILLE, Ky., Nov. 7. Returns up to 1:30 a. m. continued to show Democratic gains, though both sides still claim the election. In 0S4 out of a total of 1.8S4 pre cincts in the State, including Louisville, the results showed: Bryan 22,563; McKin ley. 13.931; Bryan's majority, 8.5SS; Beck ham, Democrat, for Governor, 21,583; Yerkes. 15.889; Beckham's majority, 5.6A4. A total of sixty-two counties out of 117 In the State is Included in the precincts heard from. Out of seventeen counties in the Eleventh district, the Republican Gibraltar, eight counties have been heard from, each giving McKinley and Yerkes an average majority of 1.OU0. The Republicans claim the entire district by 20,000 majority on both state and national tickets. McKinley Carries the Capital. FRANKFORT, Ky.. Nov. 6. The city of Frankfort gives McKinley 969; Bryan. 861 Yerkes, for Governor, 975; Beckham, 857. Lexington 1,000 for McKinley. - LEXINGTON. Ky..

Nov. 6.-Ccnnectl-cut dx:ided to-day that her electoral vote of six should be placed m the McKinley columns: the entire Repuolican State tick et was handsomely indorsed, the four con gressmen wtre re-elected, and a General Assembly cvc-rwhelmingly Fepublican was chose:. Tho plurality for McKinley, with practically all of the returns In, 1 fixed at about 2X000. Tho surprise of tho day was occasioned by the fact that the" Re publican State ticket follower closely the i;gures of the presidential contest, and was electe1 by pluralities of over 21.0QO. The Republican congressmen were elected by majorities ranging from lO.W) In th First district to a narro-v margin in th Second for Sperry. - lr The Connecticut General Asfercbly will seat nearly all of its senators as Repub licans, while the lower houje whl be sur prisingly Republican in its complexion. To the surprise of the Democrats, nearly all of tho cities of the Slate gave safe Republican majorities. The feature of the day wa3 the tremendous vote cart. GOOD-11YE PETTI (i It E W. South Dakota Lrgialature Is Over vrhelmlngly Republican. SIOUX FALLS, S. D.. Nov. 6. No doubt remains that the Republicans have won a complete victory In South Dakota, Re turns received- at- fusion and Republican State headquarters show Republican gains In this city In every precinct reporting. MdCi rVTio J4 I I IflM It Raised the Vote Frank Crane, chairman of the Republican State committee, who has persistently re fused to be quoted during the present cam paign on the probable outcome ot the elec tion, at midnight said: "We have secured sufficient returns from the counties to conclusively show that we have carried thj State for McKinley by a plurality of from 10,000 to 12,000 and that we have elected our two nominees for Congress and our entire State ticket. We will have a ma jority of forty on joint ballot In the Legis lature, Insuring the election of a Repub lican to succeed Senator Pettigrew in the United States Senate. The result has been a surprise to both sides, as the fusionists expected Brj'an to carry the State, while the Republicans did not expect McKin ley's plurality to reach more than 6,000 or ,000." The chairman of the Republican State central committee at midnight estimates plurality for McKinley, congressional nom inees and State ticket of from 10.000 to 12,000 and that the Republicans will have 40 majority on Joint ballot in the Legisla ture. SURPRISE IX MARYLAND. Democrats Snowed Under by an Ava lance of Republican Voten. BALTIMORE, Nov. 6. President McKin ley carries Baltimore city by a majority of 6,995. The returns from the country are meager, but official advices from eighty-one scattered precincts out of 354 give him 18.2S5 as against 16,197 for Bryan, thus assuring him a majority of at least 10,000 in the State. The defeat of the Democrats has been thorough and surprising, it being cer tain that they have lost five out of the six congressmen with the probabilities in favor of a clean sweep by the loss of other. The doubtful district is the second, in which ex Congressman J. Fred C. Talbot is the Democratic candidate and A. A. Blakeney the Republican aspirant. The returns, with one precinct missing, show a majority for Blakeney, and it is regarded as nigniy proD able that he is elected. This means a net loss of two congressmen to the Democrats, the Fourth and the First districts having been represented by Democrats, though Governor John Walter Smith, who was elected in the First, resigned soon after ward to become Governor of the State. His business partner, State Senator John P. Moore, was nominated by the Democrats, to succeed him, and his defeat was a source of surprise, it being considered that he was practically sure of election. LOSS OV NEARLY lOO.OOO. Republicans. However, Carried Massa chusetts by About 80,000. BOSTON, Mass., Nov. 6. President Mc Kinley has carried Massachusetts by about 0,000 plurality, a reduction of nearly 100, 000 from that of four years ago. The Re publicans have elected possibly eleven of the congressmen, a few by an Increased plurality over 1S96, but in the majority of the districts the candidates ran behind those of four years ago. "While the total vote for Governor was somewhat behind that given the national candidate, Wm. Crane was re-elected by a somewhat larger plurality than that received by President McKinley. The reduction In the Republican plurality was due, not so much to the falling off la the party vote, but to the return of the so-called Gold Democrats of 1S98 to the regular Democratic ranks. Outside of the vote for President, the in terest in the election centered in three of the congressional districts, the Third, Fifth and Sixth. The returns of the first-named district are so late that at this hour no definite result can be given, though the election is being claimed by the managers of both candidates. In the Fifth district the present congressman, Wm. S. Knox, was re-elected, although his opponent, J. J. Flynn, gave, him a stiff fight. In the Tenth district returns up to midnight in dicate the re-election of Congressman Henry F. Naphen. As usual, the Demo crats elected their candidate, Joseph A. Coney, in the Ninth district. The plurality in this city of 8.4C6 for Bry an, with one precinct to be heard from, came as a surprise of the election In east ern Massachusetts. Bryan polled through out the city 44.S13 votes; that is 14,999 more vctes than he received four years ago. This Is a gain of about 50 per cent, for the Democratic presidential candidate. McKin ley's support numbered 36,347, which was a loss of approximately 24 per cent, over l&Oo, when he received 47,922 votes. Bryan ran very strongly In Republican wards and seemed to lose In sev.eral Democratic wards. NEW HAMPSHIRE'S PLURALITY Democrats Concede 1.1,000 and Repub licans Claim Over 1S.OOO. CONCORD. N.

Mc Kinley presidential electors have carried the State by over 60,000 plurality, some estimates andiclalms going far beyond th;U figure.
