Kew York Fusion Candidate
Buried Under Avalanche
of Hughes Votes.
Upstate Republicans Scratch the

Hughes' plurality over Hearst is
60,000 in entire state.
Hughes' plurality up state is
Hearst carried Greater New
York by abou* 75,000.
Hearst carried city of Buffalo by
small plurality.
Brooklyn went for Hearst by a
small plurality.
Treachery of Odell faction is
blamed for light vote up state.
Hearst carried Rochester, Utica,
Troy and Elmira.
Hughes did not gain a single city.
New York, Nov. 7.Revised returns,
tome of them based on estimates, indi
cate a plurality of about 135,000 for
Hughes above the Bronx. This would
make his plurality in the state about
Conected figuies from Westchester
county in favoi of Hughes make up
most of the difference trom the former
estimate ot Hughes' pluiahty.
Republican pluralities in Albany, Co
lumbia, Ene, Madison, Montgomery,
Oneida, Onendoda, Rensselaer, Sche
nectady and Tompkins show Bruce
(rep.), for lieutenant governor, about
700 ahead of Hughes.
On the basis up state of 135,000 for
Hughes, this would seem to show
Bruce's election bv a narrow margin
but as the democratic candidates for
the other state offices ran ahead of
their tickets, they appear now to be
elected, including Jackson of Erie coun
ty tor attorney general.
McCarren's Fight Fatal.
William R. Heaist apparently car
lied only two counties in the state out
Bide of Greatei isew Yoik. These were
Chemung and Schoharie.
It was in his home city, however,
that he encountered the .bitterest and
most determined onslaught.
While Mr. Hearst succeeded in car
lying the county by a pluiahty of
4,363, the returns for the,remainder of
the state ticket show that his trouble
with McCarren cost him dearly.
The plurality of the county of the
democratic candidates who were not af
fected by McCarren's trouble exceeded
that of the head of the ticket by more
than 30,000. Had Hearst received these
votes it would cut his opponent's lead
to state practically in hilf.
Republicans' Faithlessness Upstate Pre
vented a Landslide in New York.
Special to The Journal.
New York, Nov. 7.Boss Murphy of
Tammanv Hall, who made the deal with
Hearst at Buil'alo that gave Hearst the
regular democratic nomination, has
pulled thru his judicial ticket in New
York county, which had upon it three
Hearst men. Tammany preserved its
reputation for regulantv, surprising
rett much everybody by failing to
Tammany's regularity and apparent
republican treachery u the state pre
vented a Hughes landslide. The Tam
many forces went into the booths and
voted their tickets straight, acting un
der the final oiders ot their leaders.
Thousands of them did it with bowed
heads. A small minority did it with
the slightest show of enthusiasm. They
merely were soldiers obeying orders.
Had they followed personal desires and
had not the leaders made their last
orders peremptory, Hughes would have
come close to carrying the greater city.
Up the state the returns show that
the republicans who at various stages
of the campaign have been accused of
sulking, and who always thru their
leaders denied the chaiges, failed to
give assistance to Hughes. They did
not vote for Hearst, they simply did
not vote at all.
The fact that there had been
treachery in the republican ranks
was emphasized by the compari
son between the total vote and the
registration. In localities where the
registration this year was equal to or
even in excess of that of the last presi
dential year, the ballots fell far below
those cast for Higgins and Hemck,
with Hughes the one to suffer, allowing
for the disaffected democrats and the
republican labor vote that was cast for
In the home counties of some of the
old leaders the latter had reason to
make a good personal showing for the
ticket of the new regimeto prove
their "regularity," as Tammany
proved its regularity, but elsewhere
their followers were permitted to re
main apathetic.
Hearst Buried Everywhere.
Defeated in New York, altho not by
a tremendous plurality, overwhelming
ly beaten in Massachusetts, where his
man Moran was running for governor on
the democratic ticket,and his ticket in
Chicago buried out Of sight, the politi
cal future of William R. Hearst is still
a problem. The general disposition is
to regard him as thoroly discredited in
spite of his run in this state and to
count him out of the reckoning in con
nection with the national campaign.
But there are skeptics- They point
to the fact that the republican mana
gers assisted by the plans of the old
line democratic leaders to-eliminate him
by burying Hearstism under an ava
lanche of votes in the ^ates where it
raised its head the highest, has failed.
It is expected that a cry^ of fraud
will go up.
Not Done I Is Feared.
It is expected that Mr. Hearst thru
his newspapers will continue the war
fare in support of his propaganda and
that he will continue to be a thorn in

Who Will Succeed Himself In the Fourth
District Judiciary.
Hammond Elected in Second by
Several HundredOnly Break
in Delegation.
The returns seem to indicate,the
election of Mr. Hammond. He is
ahead on what we have received,
and I hardly think the remaining
precincts can change the result.
Congressman James T. McOleary.
Congressman MeCleary met his Wat
erloo yesterday. Winfield S. Ham
mond, the able St. James attorney nom
inated for congress by the democrats
o the second district, is elected by a
small margin, retiring one of the most
prominent men in congress and one of
the Nestors of the Minnesota delega
tion. Hammond apparently receive^ the
votes of 6,000 or more republicans who
jwere determined to Tetire MeCleary*
1 on account of his standpat'' atti
tude on the tariff. They were not con
tent with giving him a scare in the
primaries, but went after him at the
4olls Hammond claims 600 to 700
Mr. MeCleary will retire from con
gress after fourteen years' service. He
is one of the leading members of the
ways and means committee, and the one
Minnesota congressman who has taken
a positive stand against tariff revision.
This was responsible for his downfall.
Hammond made an appeal to Independ
ent republicans which was a winner.
Blue Eaith county gave Hammond
2,775, MeCleary, 2,775.
Murray county: Hammond 856, Me
Cleary 858.
Pipestone with one precinct missing,
gives MeCleary 32.
All Others Safe.
The other eight districts in Minne
sota elect republican congressmen, but
in every district where there is a con
test the republican pluralities are cut
down. There wasn 't much of a fight in
the first district, but Congressman Taw
ney 's plurality of over 10,000 two years
ago seems to have been cut to 2,500,
the closest shave he has ever had. This
of itself is a strong indication of a
slump for republicanism in Minnesota,
for L. L. Brown's great fight was only
able to cut Tawney down to 5,000.
The sixth district elects C. A. Lind
bergh, it is estimated, by 3,000 over
M. C. Tifft.
State Chairman Says the Govern
or Will Have More Than
Des Moines, Nov. 7.Beports from
about one-half the counties of the state
indicate that the republicans carried
the state for the entire ticket.
Chairman Woods says that all the
late reports increase the plurality for
the head of the republican ticket, and
his latest estimate is that Cummins will
have more than 25,000 plurality.
At the democratic headquarters the
claim is made that the reports^ show
that Porter will have a plurality of
about 5,000.
There is no doubt as to, Hamilton for
congress in the sixth district, but the
first district is still in doubt.

Mayor Jones Concedes Haynes' Election,

James C. Haynes will be mayor of
Minneapolis after Jan. 1, 1907, to suc
ceed Mayor David P. Jones. Mayor
Jones succeeded Mayor Haynes two
years ago and now the compliment is
returned. Bepubliean votes have again
elected a democratic mayor for Minne
apolis, while every other city office is
overwhelmingly carried by the repub
An analysis of the returns show that
the republican candidate was slaugh
tered even in the house of his friends.
Heretofore Mayor Jones has always car
ried the fifth ward, his home ward, by
at least a safe majority. I will be
a close' squeeze this time. Mr, Haynes
has always lost the second, his home
ward, and loses it again fchi year. Of

Lighter than Primaries.
The vote in many instances is lighter
than at the primaries. This is the case
in several of the so-called republican
wards and the doubtful and democratic
districts on the other hand .are up to
the primary vote or ahead. In the
tenth, twelfth and thirteenth* wards
Jones has less votesthan at'the pri
maries. In these -same wards the vote
for Haynes practically corresponds to
the Williams vote at the primaries.* In
the sixth and eleventh wards, both of
which Mr. Haynes carried^ Mayor Jones
shows an increase over his primary
vote, but Haynes has a- heavy vote
equal to nearly all other votes cast at
the primaries.
Scores of explanations of the Haynes
slide may be heard about town today.
One thing is certain, the'Haynes peo-
and Burglar Loots Studio of Cash
Valuable Apparatus.
Burglars entered A. H. Opsahl's pho
tograph studio at 26 Sixth street last
night and stole a lens valued at $300,
$51 in cash and $8 in checks.
The thieves first broke thru a rear
window and finding the door to the
operating room locked they sawed a
hole thru the partition and went into
the other part of the building. There
they took the lease and tapped the till.
Mr. Opsahl heard the men at work in
the night, but thought the noise re
sulted trom the election excitement and
did not get up.
le almost as greatly'surprised at
victory as were the tTones people
at their defeat. Tho a bold front was
kept up by the Haynes forces, and
tho, when things started their way,
they assumed all the credit* it is never
theless a fact that hundreds of Haynes
supporters were badly frightened last
night. Thousands of dollars of Haynes
money was hedged last evening and
out-and-out Haynes men admitted that
they considered themselves' licked to a
finish. Ardent Jones men* refused at
fiTst to believe the returns as they
came in. There was a large surplus of
My only regret is that the city for its own sake could not accept a standard
which the administration believed it practicable to establish.
As for myself, I feel that a great load has rolled from my shoulders. I had
been wondering how, in case of my re-election, it would be physically possible
for me to perform the tasks of the next two years. Now all that is settled,
and personally I have a sensation ofrelief. Mayor D. Jones.
I stand on my opening statement of the campaign," said James O.
Haynes early today, referring to the "lid" question. "It is hardly the time
to discuss policies," he added, "but I shall stick to what I said about the lid."
Growing-more earnest, Mr. Haynes added: I made that statement con-
cerning the maintenance of the lid in my opening address, and, while my sin-
cerity has been questioned frequently, I am not in the habit of making state-
ments of policies that I don't keep.
I took that stand after full deliberation and knowing full well what I
was doing. I was not for political purposes."

joy in one camp and an equal surplus
of gloom in the other.
Tracing the Defeat.
Politicians on both sides who have
followed Minneapolis city politics for
years trace the Jones defeat to abnor
mar conditions in both parties. Mayor'
Jones secured his nomination after a~
most bitter primary fight, and Mr.'
Haynes was nominated almost without
effort. A hard fight was carried on'$Mi
all over the city for the Jones nom
ination, and naturally it left many-,
sore spots.
While the-re was not perfect har
mony in the democratic organization,
there was still less harmony in the
republican organization, and Mayor
Jones and his supporters chose to han-
llle^'-their campaign almost indepen
the- regular organization?
The'.democratic organization was plen
tifully supplied with money, which was
freely used. On the other side, the
republican organization had little to
work with. Half the city and county
candidates, after hard primary fights,
in most instances took the stand that
they owed the party nothing, and that,
as they were reasonably safe with the
normal heavy republican ma-jorities of
the city and county, they would stand
alone. This assisted the disorganization
of the republican campaign. The demo
crats, moreover, took advantage of a
popular head of the state ticket,
backed by a committee with more
funds. The republican organization re
ceived only a small amount for the
state organization and was obliged to
work with a ticket that was but in
differently supported by the repub
licans of the city and county.
Irregular Ticket.
Another thing which as much as any
other, and possibly more than any
other, contributed to disorganization in
republican ranks, was the open opposi
tion of many well-known republicans to
different candidates on the ticket.
Among the strong republican stand
patters, the greatest indignation is ex
pressed that republicans who have re
ceived favors at the hands of the par
ty or are receiving them, were openly
against the ticket and in some cases
worked against it. Men who have in
the past or who are now drawing sala
ries as the result of favors from the
