Official Count Necessary to Determine Result
in Kentucky, Nebraska and Idaho.
Indications, However, Are That the Bluegrass Com
monwilth's Vote Will Be Unfairly Counted
for Bryan and Beckham by Goebelites.
AIR. BRYAN'S STATE IS VERY CLOSE
Legislature Is Possibly Fusion, but McKinley
Electors Are Claimed by Republicans.
Nothing Definite from Idaho, Where Returns Are Be
lated Committeeman Manley Claims 305
Votes and Payne 308 for McKinley.
As announced by the Journal yesterday.
President McKinley will have at least 2S4
votes In tho Electoral College. Dispatches
received last night enow no change In
States definitely announced as having been
carried by Republicans. On Wednesday
Kentucky, Nebraska and Idaho were In
doubt. Latest returns do not clear the
situation In Nebraska and Idaho, but Ken
tucky may have been counted for Bry
an and Beckham. A Western Union Tele
it graph Company bulletin Issued last night
"Returns from seventy-five counties com
plete, or nearly complete, embracing 1,215
precincts out of a total of 1.S77 precincts In
the State of Kentucky, give Bryan 156,759,
McKinley 137.243, Beckham 134.0CC, Yerkes
12S.877. Of the forty-four counties not yet
heard from or reported sparsely, sixteen
rave In the last presidential election 7,243
Democratic plurality and twenty-eight 19,
. C27 Republican plurality."
Republicans are sanguine, however, of
having carried Kentucky for McKinley and
Yrkcs, but the Democrats are claiming the
State. The Louisvllla Courier-Journal, last
night, gave out a statement saying that
1.T0Ö out of 1.SS4 precincts gave Bryan a
majority of 8,000 and Beckham, 4.0CO.
Advices from Nebraska show the State
is very close, with the chances favoring
McKinley. The Legislature, however, may
In Idaho returns aro so meager that the
nölcial count may be necessary to decide.
A dispatch from Boise, says: "Returns
from Nez Perces and Latah counties show
those counties have not held up to the
former Republican majorities. This makes
a radical change, and it Is probable the
State has gone for Bryan and the Demo
cratic State ticket, though Morrison, Re
publican, for congressman, may pull
through. The Republican State committee
claims forty members of the Legislature,
a. majority of ten on Joint ballot, but there
Is much uncertainty yet on this point."
At New York last night J. II. Manley,
vice chairman of the Republican national
committee, said that McKinley would havo
2)5 electoral votes; that he has carried
every Northern Stato with the exception
of Montana, Nevada and Colorado, and
that he has carried four Southern States
Kentucky, Maryland. Delaware and West
Virginia, Mr. Manley said there would be
twenty-three additional Republican mem
ber! of Congress to the present number,
and. tlx additional senators, with a loss of
ere la Colorado, making a net gain of five.

and electoral votes, based on unofficial re

3IIt. PAYNE'S STATEMENT.
He -mv Claims 308 Votes for McKin
ley, Counting Kentucky.
CHICAGO, Nov. 7. Republican national
headquarters was the scene of a continuous
love feast all day and well into the night.
Returns received from the various mem
bers of the national committee all went
to confirm the general result announced
last night, though in many Instances the
oversangulne committeemen were obliged
to reduce their first predictions regarding
the size of Preslednt McKlnley's plurality.
Nothing was received, however, that caused
any ff?fuietude. Vice Chairman Payne re
marked: "We know we have won and
won easily. Nothing can worry us now."
During the afternoon Mr. Payne issued a
etatement claiming 20S electoral votes for
McKinley, but he seemed none too confi
dent that this number would be the result.
The 303 included the vote of Kentucky, and
notwithstanding tho assertions of the Re
publicans from that State that they had
carried the State, there was not much con
fidence felt in the headquarters that Ken
tucky had gone Democratic. On Nebraska
the feeling was positive and the assurances
from Republican leaders in that State all
stated that McKinley had certainly carried
the State by anywhere from 3.000 to 7,000.
The Republican leaders will be greatly dis
appointed if they fail to carry Mr. Bryan's
State. They want it not for the reason that
Its electoral vote is necessary to the elec
tion of President McKinley, but for the
comfort of having Bryan repudiated In his
Congratulatory telegrams poured into
headquarter?; all day In a itrfect stream.
Every State in the Union teemed to pro
vide .it least a score of them. Mr. Payne
issued an address late in tho day declaring
that the result had thown that the psople
of tht country upheld the policy of the
present administration, that the yDung
men of the country had arrayed themslvs
on the sida of the Republican party, and
offering thanks and congratulations to nil
whose work had elded in the success
achieved by the party.
KENTUCKY VERY CLOSE.
Democrats Say 4,504) for Ilrymt and
Republicans Claim 2.SOO for Yerkes.
FRANKFORT. Ky.. Nov. 7.-The Ken
tucky governorship is still being claimed
by both parties at the state capital. The
Democrats are claiming .advices showing
ReckhanYs election by from 4.500 to 6.000.
while the Republicans claim the election
ot Yerkes by 2,500. Independent voters are
charging that the Republicans are holding
back the returns in tho Eleventh district
and that the Democrats have done likewise
In the First the , Republican and Demo
cratic strongholds, respectively, each wait
ing for the oher tide to make a show
down, and that thi3 is lesponsible for tho
delay In ascertaining tho result.
The "C. J." Carries the State for Bryan
LOUISVILLE, Ky., Nov. 8. At 1:30 a. m.,
with returns from all but sixty-two out
of 1.SS4 precincts In Kentucky, tho Courier
Journal puts Bryan's majority at 7,781 and
Beckham's at 4.0GS. The missing precincts
are about evenly divided between the Dem
ocrats and Republicans.
Governor Beckham, at Democratic head
quarters, said to-night: "I am absolutely
certain that I have been elected Governor
by a majority of between 3,000 and 10,000
Leslie Combs, chairman of tho Republican
State campaign committee, said: "V"e still
believe that Mr. Yerke3 has been eitcteJ
by & majority of 3,000 votes. Our ligurej
show that McKinley has run 00 votes be
hind Yerkes. At least 3,000 Republican bal
lots have not yet oecn counted in certain
counties, and these will increase the Re
publican vote. Wo also claim the election
of four Republican congressmen, namely,
Borelng, in the Eleventh district; Irwin,
in the Fifth; McKenzlo Moss in the Third,
and Hopkins In the Tenth. We are also
of opinion that Sam J. Pugh has been
elected over Kehoe In the Ninth district.
MR. BRYAN'S STATE. -
Nebraska Probably Republican,
Thoaffh Fualonlati Claim It.
OMAHA, Neb., Nov. 7. Election returns
In Nebraska are clote. Chairman Lindsey,
cf the republican committee, claims to-
night that McKinley carried tho Ötate by
7,000 or more, the Republican state ticket
wins by 5,000 to 7.0 and that the Republic
ans have a majority of seventeen In the
Legislature. They claim the re-election of
Mercer and Burkett for Congress, and the
election of Pope, Moreland and possibly
Harris. Against this the Democrats claim
Bryan carried tho State, though by a nar
row margin of perhaps of not over 1,000;
that the fusion ticket has a safe working
majority In the Legislature; that fusion
etate officer are elected by 3,000 to 5.000.
and, conceding the re-election of Mercer
and Burkett, that fusion has pulled
through Robinson, Stark, Shallenberger
and Neville." The latter Is the only con
gressman ponceded by Republicans.
The Legislature will be in doubt until
complete returns are in. Indications are
that it will be fusion by a small majority.
Both parties are claiming the lead on Joint
Later. Complete figures were received
from twenty of the ninety counties in the
State. These counties polled 75,000 votes,
or approximately one-third of the vote
of the State. The vote of the twenty coun
ties returned was as follows: Bryan,
37.S90; McKinley, 40,003. These counties
four years ago gave Bryan 2S.0D2; McKin
ley, 31.4S1. Tills change, If maintained,
would come Very near wiping out the Bry
an plurality of 13,000 of 1SUG. Scattering
returns from other counties show a smaller
percentage of loss, and indicate that the
fusion electoral ticket may win out by a
lead of about 1.2C0 or 1,500.
In Douglass county the Legislature elec
tion Is fusion by majorities ranging from
100 to COO. At least one State senator out
of three and two representatives out of
nine are Republican. .
Tho World-Herald (Dem.) to-morrow
will say: "The Legislature of Nebraska is
fusion by 72 votes out of 123 on Joint bal
lot. In tho Senate there will be 14 Repub
licans and 19 fusionists. In the House
there will be 47 Republicans and &3 fusion
ists." The World-Herald then prints tho
names of those elected.

SIOUX FALLS. S. D., Nov. 7. "I predict
the formation of a new party based on the
protests of tho outraged people against Re
publicanism as taught by Mark -Hanna,"
declared United States Senator R. F. Petti
grew this morning. He had just left his
home, to which he withdrew last night
when the first considerable batch cf tele
grams arrived from South Dakota.
'I saw how It was going and went home
he continued. "For weeks I have told tho
national committee we were defeated In
South Dakota, but they have kept claiming
the State, and I have been working for po
litical effect. No, I was not disappointed.
I slept well last night. I will remain In
Sioux Falls, and am now going to resume
my mill north of town. Defeat is the more
sweet as it has come than victory If it had
come by indorsing the ort of policy which
the Republican party represents.
"Yes, of course, I will be in the new
party. What It will be called Is of little
moment It may be 'social labor' or It may
be the new democracy. It will be made up
of persons discontented with the elements
In politics, as a protest against the existing
conditions and the present tendency of
things. The movement will grow rapidly,
and I believe will defeat the Republican
party In 1301. The Mark Hanna Republic
anism menaces the Republic. Ihe concen
tration of wealth will create an influence
soon to restrict the right of suffrage, until
capitalists will say no one is fit to take part
in the government who does not know
enough to make money. At first the limits
will Include a small minority, and then the
amount will be raised until there is nomi
nally a simon-pure Illiteracy.
"The election does not stand as an in
dorsement of all the administration stands
for. The cry of prosperity and the racial
trait were more apparent now than ever
before. No Anglo-Saxon nation ever voted
against the party In power while involved
in war, though I thought it would be dif
ferent this time because of more general
dissemination of knowledge. There will
likely occur a divorcement of the Democratic-Populist
party, but the new party
will be the popular one. I cannot say
whether Mr. Bryan will affiliate with It or

CLEVELAND, O., Nov. 7. Speaker Hen
derson, of the national House of Repre
sentatives, was entertained at dinner at
the Union Club by about twenty prominent
Republicans of Cleveland on the eve of
Oct. 31. when he delivered a campaign
speech in this city. He greatly surprised
seme of his hosts during the table talk
by telling them that Senator Hanna s
campaign tour of the Northwest had ro
stirred up that section of the country that
the senator was being talked about there
as a presidential possibility four years
Senator Hanna was asked to-day wheth
er he had heard anything of any such
sentiment in the Northwest. "Yes," he
answered. "I have heard rumors to that
effect. At some of the meetings I ad
dressed in the Northwest cries were raised
about the next presidency, which I could
not help hearing. There has been some
talk of the character you mention. But
1 don't want to be the next President
after McKinley. I won't have anything to

and public life to suit any one."

At the headquarters of the Democratic

Republicans to a majority of from 40 to W

Special to the Indianapolis Journal.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 7.-Like tho battle
of Blenheim, the election yesterday was a
"famous victory." President McKinley is
re-elected by a greater electoral vo;e than
he had before, the icw House will have a
greater Republican majority than the pres
ent one, and the Senate have at least ttty
two Republicans to thirty-eight Democrats
and six independents, classifying Senator
Wellington as an independent. In Vva
calculation 1 is assumed that the Leglsli
ture of Nebraska .vili be Republican, and
that of Delaware Democratic. The Hons
now hac a Republican majority of nlre
teen, with five vacancies. In the new
House it will be more than flfiy. Conserv
ative Democrats, ev-jn when they voted for
Bryan, do not conceal their satisfaction at
the result. Their or.Jy regret Is that Bry
an's defeat was not even more sweeping
than it was. They. I elicve that he is now
eliminated as a presidential candidate, arI
that the control of the party will ba tikn

nine Independents, with the Legislatures In

of electing five senators at this Uae. Tfca
Legislatures in doubt are Delaware and

Official counts will be needed In several of
the counties or legislative districts to de
cide the personnel of the next Legislature,
but there is no doubt about Its complexion.
It will be Republican by an increased ma
jority. The Republicans have fourteen
holdover senators and certainly have elect
ed nineteen, a minimum total of thirty
three, giving them a majority of sixteen
over the Democratic force of eleven hold
overs and six certainly or possibly elected.
The Republicans have elected forty-three
representatives, with almost a certainty of
securing Aiken, of Bartholomew, as well
as the two seats from Vigo. Fourteen
joint representatives are assured, with a
probability of getting Ohio and Switzerland
counties, where F. N. Miller la making a
good run. This makes sixty-one members
of the lower house, with a good many pos
sibilities still out. The Deihocrats are sure
of but twenty-eight of the remaining thirty-nine
scats, and probably will lose some
of these. At all events, the Republicans
are sure of a majority of 'forty on joint

Cut in Two of the Districts,
Heaviest Republican Gains Alade in the Bourbon
5trongholds A Few Counties, Narrowly Held,
Are Lost To the Democracy.
Special dispatches received by the Journal
during yesterday and last night show no
indications that the Journal's claims of a
plurality of S0.000 or more for McKinley is
excessive. They rather tend to confirm
that estimate. The State ticket is running
only slightly behind the national ticket.
The Indiana delegation In Congress is un
changed, the Republicans carrying the nine
districts carried by them In 1S38. Mlers
(Dem.) Is elected by a reduced plurality In
the Second, as Is Grlfilth in the Fourth.
While it is certain that the Republicans
have increased their working majority in
the State Legislature, the count on these
tickets is so slow that the details of the
changes are not available. Tipton county
has gone Republican for the first time In its
hi3tory, and In Switzerland county the Re
publicans have made a gain of over C00, and
have carried the county. Floyd and Clark
counties havo gone Democratic.
IXDIAXA IX COXGKESS.
Republicans Carry the Same District!
Carried ly Them In 18'JC.
According to reports received by the
state Republican committee yesterday the
Republicans of Indiana elected nine con
gressmen. It was hoped to carry two of
the Democratic districts the Fourth and
the Twelfth and until yesterday afternoon
It was not positive ly known that Nathan
Powell had been defeated in the Fourth dis
trict. According to present figures the In
diana representation in the House of Con
gress will be as follows:
1 James A. Hemenway, Boonville, Rep.

The Democrats some of them were
claiming yesterday that Mr. Holllday had
been defeated In the Fifth district, but
Chairman Ilernly says Mr. Holllday's plu
rality will be at least 1,500. As to the
Fourth, Chairman Ilernly was much in
doubt, and during the afternoon was in
formed that it would require the oJTlclal
count to determine the result Later re
turns, however, Indicated that Mr. Powell
had been defeated by a small majority.
Chairman Ilernly says that In all the dis
tricts the Republican congressional candi
dates made gains. Chairman Keallng, of
the Seventh district, said last night that
he would not be surprised If Jesse Over
street received a plurality of 6,0y0. Mr.
Keallng gald Johnson county gave Mr.
Overstreet's opponent about 6Ö0 majority.
This, ho said, showed a gain over the vote
of two years ago.
DECATUR. Ind., Nov. 7. Fifteen out of
thirty-one precincts in Adams county give
McKinley S12, Bryan 1.6SS. The same m
gave McKinley 822, Bryan 1.413. The
state and county tickets received practical
ly the same vote.
HARTFORD CITY, Ind., Nov. 7. Unof
ficial returns to-night show that Blackford
county has gone Democratic by 70 on the
national and state tickets. Amos Curry
was re-elected, the only Republican county
candidate elected on that ticket. The
Democratic majorities on the county ticket
ranged from 10 to 40. There were big Re
publican gains over the vote of 156, and 73
votes thrown out in one precinct lost the'
Republicans the county ticket.
LEBANON, Ind., Nov. 7. Returns from
only half the precints In Boone county
have been reported, but it Is certain
now that Bryan has carried the county by
about practically the same plurality as
in l&G. The State, congressional and coun
ty tickets run about the same. The entire
Democratic county ticket is elected.
