Seth Low, former president of Columbia university, and four years ago the citizens' candidal '3 for first mayor of Greater New York, was elected today the second mayor of Greater New xork by a plurality any where from 30.000 to 40,000, defeating Kdward M. Shepard of Brooklyn, th; democratic nominee. The vote, thougn somewhat less than at the presidential election a year ago, is the largest Iolled at a municipal election. In addition to the mayoralty, public interest was largely centered in th- nomination by the fusionists of William Travers Jerome for district attorney, and Mayor Van W'yck by the demo crats for justice of the supreme court, who were voted for only in the terri tory contained in New York county. The returns up to a late hour indicate that Jerome has been elected by a com fortable plpurality and that Van W'yck has been defeated, the latter running benind his ticket between fifteen and twenty thousand. Returns indicate the complete tri umph here of the fusion ticket of Greater New York. Reports from various sections of New York stato show that the republicans will retaii control of the lower house of the legis lature. In various municipal contests reported from up state the most inter esting elections noted are those at Al bany. Troy. Rochester, Syracuse, Buf falo and Albany, which were carried by the republicans. Tonight Seth Low gave out a formal statement, in which he said: "The out come of this election is a splendid vin dication of universal suffrage. From all parts of the city have come votis tnat have rebuked the Tammany orgie j of the last four years. All the patron- j nge of the city and limitless money) nave not availed against me arousei Indignation of the people, and it is safe to say that an absentee government and a government for private gain will not be seen again in New York for many a day. This is no man's triunipa, but it is the jKtople's victory." Low is in receipt of hundreds of tele grams from prominent men, not only in the city, but also from different parts of the ?tate and country, among 'hem being congratulations from Presi dent Roosevelt and Senator Foraker of Ohio. Kdward M. Shepard mode public acknowledgement of his defeat tonight at his headquarters In Brooklyn. He sent a telegram of congratulation to iw and dictated a statement to the reporters, in whic h tie expressed nls hpe that the incoming administration will be a successful one. His telegram read: "With all sincerity I wish you the utmost success In the great ofll'-e to which the people of Orealer New York have called you." CROKER ABDICATES The Boss Surrenders the Leadership of Tammany. New York. Nov. 5. Croker. Maurice Cntermeyer and Senator T. I". Sullivan were together at dinner tonight, and it iS said on good authority that a lit tle later t'roker said this was his in at I political light, broker asked Senator Sullivan whom lie desired as a leader. Sullivan answered that John F. Carroll would be pleasing to him. Then and there, it is said. Richard broker abdi cated the leadership of Tammany Hall and turned it over to John F. Carroll. There was some discussion as to the plans of the reorganization of Tam many, In which t'roker took no part, except to suggest that younger blood be admitted to the inner councils of the organization. The party proceeded to Tammany Hall, where John F. Carroll was await ing them. He was apprised of the pur pose of Croker. but said nothing. He accompanied Croker to the democratic club, and coins up stairs remained closeted with him for nearly an hour. It was after this conference that Cro ker announced; "This is my last cam paign." It Is now said that Daniel F. Me diation will call a meeting of the ex ecutive committee w tthin a week, when Croker will tender his resignation, and on motion of Senator Timothy I. Sul livan, John F. Carroll will be elected the new leader of Tammany Hall. Before retiring tonight Croker told some of his Intimate friends that this was the last campaign he would per sonally conduct. THE END OF THE FIGHT Chief Croker Explains the Causes of Defeat. New York, Nov. 5. After several weeks the hottest campaign light ing ever seen In this city over a mu nicipal election, come to and end today when the ballots were cast. It passed with unwonted quiet, considering the nigh reeling that had previously been exhibited. There were a few tights at the polls among individuals, but none of a serious nature, and out of the stores of arrests made few prisoners were held by the magistrates. The great feature of the voting was the early casting of the ballots. There was a drizzling rain up to 9 o'clo... but after that the weather cleared up. Seth Low cast his ballot before 8 o'clock while Shepard voted at half past eleven. Richard Croker and his two sons were numbers one, two and three at their polling place, one minute after six. Senator Dcpew deposited his ballot shortly after 9. while Mayor Van Wyck waited until 3 o'clock. The practical use of the voting ma chine was demonstrated in the Kigh teenth precinct in Brooklyn, where the resuit was known two minutes after the polls were closed. An incident which attracted attention in New York city was the refusal of the elec tion judges in one district to allow one voter to cast his ballot because he had made- a bet of a box of cigars on the result of the election.- Croker read the returns at the headquarters of Tam many Halt. 'Kp -was surrounded by a crowd long prominent In the organi zation, among them were John Carroll, Mayor Van Wyck. Corporation Coun sel Whalen and others. Croker listened with his customary stolidity as the bulletins were read. Tonight Croker. commenting u;on Shepard's defeat, said he could not as cribe it to any issue. "The people wanted a change." said he, "and the organization bows to the will of the people. Tammany Hall has been in power for practically seventeen years. If any one party were to remain in control for too long a period the ten dency would be toward a perpetuation of power until the result would re semble a monarchy. Tammany Hall has always proflied hy defeat. I hop it will do so this time." Croker said all dissatisfied persons had rebelled against the democratic nominees, and that had done much toward the result. As to his own plans for the immediate future he had noth ing to say. He said, however, that Low would have the good wishes of the democratic organization in his admin istration. CONTEST IN THE STATE The Republican Municipal Victories Throughout New York- New York. Nov. 5. The eiection in Troy was a lively one, a number of ar rests for illegal voting being made. Former United States feenator Murphy headed the tight for the candidate the democrats, while former Governor Black managed the campaign for th-j progressive democratic-republican tic it -et. Daniel K. 'onway, candidate for mayor supported by Black, was easily elected. In Buffalo the entire republican citv and county tickets were elected. Krastus C. Knight, the state comptrol ler, being chosen mayor. The result In Rochester was close, but Mayor War ren's friends claim the election of the republican candidate.

PRESIDENT PLEASED He Wires Congratulations Mayor Elect. to the Washington. Nov. 5. 1 'resident Roosevelt returned tonight at !:30 from Oyster Bay, where he cast his ballot. With him were Mrs. Roosevelt, Secretary Cortelyou, Private Secretary Ioeb and Dr. Rixey. The party occu pied the private car 'Lucanla." which was attached to the rear Florida & Southern express of the Pennsylvania railroad. On his arrival here the pres ident, after shaking hands with the porter, led the way with Mrs. Roose velt to a carriage in -waiting and the party was taken directly to the White House. Quite a number of persons assembled at the station, and the pres ident lifted his hat several times In re sponse to salutations. An extra detail of police and a large force of secret service officers were on hand to see that no harm befell the chief executive. The president's trip from New York to Washington was without special in cident. The party remained in the car and avoided moving about to any ex tent. At Jersey City. the president shook hands with a number of friends while waiting for the train to leave. President Roosevelt was kept in fcrmed of the results of the election during the evening while aboard the train returning to Washington, and later at the White House by Associated Press bulletins and private dispatches. While anxious for news from every quarter, his greatest interest centered in the result in New York city. He expressed keen satisfaction over the election of the fusion ticket there. Soon after reaching the White House he telegraphed congratulations to Mayor-elect Low, and afterwards, when the election of Jerome appeared to be beyond any question, he sent a tele gram to the new district attorney. OHIO'S SHOWING The Republicans Gained Almost Everywhere. Columbus. Ohio, Nev. 5. The repub licans have gained in Cincinnati, Cleve land, Toledo.

Franklin, with a democratic gain of 3.000 than If he had been elected governor wuhout carrying Franklin. The greatest re publican demonstration here tonight was over the returns from Toledo, showing that Nash carried Lucas coun ty, with the legislative ticket. The extent of the republican success is attributed to the silver democrats not voting: to the attitude of John K. McLean, the democratic candidate for governor two years ago, and the Oh!o member of the national democratic committee: to the suporior organiza tion of the republicans, and oth.;r causes. The republicans attribute the result largely to a popular desire not to disturb the prevailing prosperity. In accordance with Senator Manna's cam paign argument. THK RUSL'LT IN CLKVKLAND.

COTJSTY ST ITEHOOt) C DMMITTEE Proceedings of Last Sight's Board cf Trade Meeting. . The board of trade held a meeting at which action was taken to keep alive locally tne enthusiasm now existing on the statehood question and to give the cause a new impetus outside the terri tory in various ways. In order U, accomplish this purpose it was decided to appoint a committee of twenty-five men. to be known as the Maricopa county statehood committee, which organization will have charge of this especial work. A committee con sisting of J. W. Dorris. H. I. Latham and B. A. Fowlor. was appointed to co-operate with President Ford of thti board in the selection of the committee of twenty-five, themselves to be of th? number. Upon the organization of the statehood committee that body may ta ke action such as it deemed best for local work. but it is charged by the board with one duty. which is to at once be gin a campaign of education against the members of congress, opening cor respondence with each senator and representative and placing before each one the reasons why Arizona, should b admitted. The board of trade will also keep up its work along the same line and in addition will endeavor to secure the co-operation of other commercial or ganizations throughout the country, thus swelling the already rapidly grow ing influence in favor of statehood. It is altogether likely that, following the lead of the Maricopa county board of trade in this matter, the other counties of the territory will organize similar statehood committees, thus multiply ing the force that will be brought to bear upon member of congress. After the statehood subject was dis posed of Mr. B. A. Fowler, who has charge of the work of securing the bonus for the sugar factory, reported that the committee was making good progress and that it was nearing the end of its labors. Everything is en couraging at the present time and h feels assured that the committee will have an altogether pleasing report to make at an early day. SLEEPING ON IT Probability of a Hung Jury in the Plores Case- When at half past nine o'clock th Jury in the Flores murder case sent word down that more blankets wew wanted, those who had been waiting about the court house to hear the ver dict went home to bed. It is not be lieved to be probable that an agreement will be reached. It is surmised that the questions mainly before the Jury are those of manslaughter and acquittal. The evidence in the case was all put in early yesterday. The aft moon was taken up with the arguments. At half past three o'clock the matter was left with the jury. The testimony left the case very much clouded. The defendant, who s said to be only 14 years old, and a Yaqui, about three months ago shut and killed another Indian named Moloque at a settlement seven miles south of Tempe. Moloque had beaten the boy a short time before. At the time of the shooting both parties and all the witnesses were drunk. The de fense claimed that the shooting was accidental; that the defendant, boy like, was fooling with a loaded gun. That theory was not supported by much of the testimony: neither was it made to appear that the shooting had been preceded by premeditation. The case of George McDonald, charged with the killing of E. P. Gard ner, the train watchman at RIngling's cricus, will be called this morning. It was set for Monday, but was crowded out of place by the Flores case. It will probably be the most Interesting Inci dent of the term. Mrs. J. Brawley was granted a di vorce from Milton Brawley on the ground of abandonment and failure to support. These parties were married In 1S94 and lived together two years. The Evans Loan and Investment Co.

Preparing to Petition Congress to Grant Autonomy to the Philippines An Outline of the PI in by Which This Country Will Remain in General Supervision Over the Islands. Manila, Nov. 5. A plot to massacre the American garrison at Moncada, j province of Tarlac. in the island of L.uzon, nas oeen revcaiea ny tne wite of one of the conspirators. Several town officials are implicated. The woman who revealed the plot hid a de tective beneath the house in which the leaders of the conspiracy had a. meeting. Arrests followed and many incriminating papers were seized. The plan was to set fire to a house clo?e to the barracks after dark. When the soldiers came out to assist In ex tinguishing the flames 2r0 conspirators, armed with bolos. were to rush on the guard, capture their arms and pro ceed to massacre the garrison. Commissioner Wrigr.t today took the oath of office of vice governor. He will be acting governor during the conva lescence of Governor Taft. who prob ably will be unable to resume duty for several weeks. The newspapers ap prove of the appointment. The United States Philippine com mission today passed the treason lawn with slight alterations. Several of the Fill pi noes spoke against them. The federalists are holding "a convention to arrange a petition to congress, asking that body to grant autonomy to the Philippines, with a governor accepted by the president of the I'nited States, with a veto power over the two houses: the senate to conpit of thirty 'members, fourteen of them to b3 named by the governor and sixteen to be elected. In cuf? of th death of the governor. It is proposed that his da ties shall devolve upon the president of the senate temporarily. The lower house, according to the proposed plan, shall consist of a representative for each 100 inhabitants. Finally, the fed eralists desire that every Filipino Fhall be pardoned for offenses arising from -political causes. "The petition," Buencamino said, "is to be sent to congres, and must be as pure as crystal. It would not be so if Paterno were allowed to participate in It." ' Paterno was formerly president of the so-called Filipino cabinet. Buen camino is one of the directors of the federal party, and was at one time a member of the eo-called Filipino congress.
