Their Signal Overthrow Quite Discomfits Them. Two More Democratic Congressmen From Illinois. North Dakota May Contribute One and Michigan Several More—The States in Detail. Associated Press Dispatches. Chicago, Nov. 7.—At last the returns from the state of Illinois are sufficiently complete to announce decisively the re sult on the state ticket. The Demo crats have won, and Kdwin s. Wilson, of Olney, is elected state treasurer by 11,436, and Henry Raab, of Belleville, superintendent of public instruction, by 36,144. No compilations have been made yet on the trusteeships of the Uni versity of Illinois, but the indications are that the three Democratic nominees are elected by a slight majority. Not until today have the Republicans of Illinois realized the full extent of the avalan-me which has obliterated their old-time majority in the state. Fuller returns today showed that in addition to the Democratic gains heretofore an nounced in the congressional districts, Congressmen Payson and Hill also have been defeated, and Snow and Stewart, Democrats, elected. Both Hill and Payson have telegraphed the Associated Press conceding their defeat, the former by 650 and the latter by 500 to 700. This makes the congressional delegation from Illinois stand fourteen Democrats and six Republicans. The congressmen elected are as follows: First, Taylor, R; Second, McGann, D; Third, Burrow, D; Fourth, Newberry, D; Fifth, Hopkins, R; Sixth, Hitt, R; Seventh, Henderson, R; Eighth, Stewart, D; Ninth, Snow, D; Tenth, Post, R; Eleventh, Cable, D; Twelfth, Wilke, D; Thirteenth, Springer, D; Fourteenth, Scott, D; Fif teenth, Busey, D; Sixteenth, Fithian, D; Seventeenth, Lane, D; Eighteenth, Forman, D; Nineteenth, Williams, D; Twentieth, Smith, R. The great delay in arriving at an authentic conclusion in this state has been due to the lateness of the returns, owing to the tremendous amount of scratching. All the estimates on which the previous reports were based were valueless in view of the political tidal wave which swept over the state, and which is unprecedented in the history of Illinois. SOUTH DAKOTA. A Srant.Republican Victory—Pierre Gets the Capital. St. Paul, Minn., Nov. 7.—ln South Dakota the Independents have conceded the election of the Republican state ticket, and the latest reports seem to indicate the election of a Republican majority in the legislature, insuring the re-election of Senator Moody. Pierre has won the permanent capital, by from 8000 to 10,000 majority, although Huron does not concede the fact. Late today Chairman Peemilier, of the Democratic committee, conceded the election of both the Republican congressmen and most of the state ticket, but claimed the governor and enough of the lecislature to give a majority to the Alliance and Democrats. Sioux Falls, S.D., Nov. 7.—The Press (Rep.) has returns showing that the en tire Republican state ticket is elected. Reports from all but two senatorial and nine representative districts, show that the Republicans have one majority in the senate, the house standing sixty-one Republicans and fifty-three Democrats and Alliance men. Thirty-one counties out of fifty-one give Pierre" 7659 majority for the state capital. WISCONSIN. The Republicans Lose Everything Save One Lone Congressman. Milwaukee, Wis., Nov. 7.—Official returns from the First district today show the elect ion of Babbitt, D, over Cooper, R. This leaves only one Re publican congressman in Wisconsin, Haugen, in the Eighth district, who has about 1000 majority. The Republicans suffer a net loss of six congressmen, besides the legislature, which will prob ably elect ex-Secretary Vilas to succeed Senator Spooner, although other candi dates are springing up. Peck, D, for governor, has a majority of 30,000. KANSAS. Honors Divided Between Republicans and Farmers Alliance. Kansas City, Nov. 7—The official can vass of the votes in Kansas has pro gressed far enough to show that the en tire Republican state ticket is elected, with the exception of Kellogg, who is defeated for re-election as attorney-gen eral, by Ives, Farmers Alliance. The Republican majority is placed at about 10,000. The vote on congressmen is not changed by the official count. The Kansas delegation stands two Republi cans and five Farmers Alliance. The legislature is still believed to be Farmers Alliance. NEBRASKA. The Democratic Candidate for Governor Pulls Through. Omaha, Nov. 7. —Returns from eighty five out of eighty-nine counties in Ne braska, give tho following figures for governor: Richards, R., 69,236; Bovd, D., 72,325; Powers, Alliance, 71,143. While the contest is very close, a careful estimate gives Boyd a plurality of nearly 1000, but indicates the election of the remainder of the Republican state ticket. The total vote of the state so far exceeds by fully 15,000 the presidential vote of 1888, an extraordinary increase for an off year. CONNECTICUT. It Is Not Decided Yet Whether a Gov ernor Has Been Elected. Hartford, Conn,, Nov. 7—The offi cial vote of the state by the first returns which cast out the prohibition vote in many towns, shows that Morris has 57 Elurality; with the prohibition vote in, c is defeated. Later.—An apparent error in some of the returns gives Merwin, R., for gov ernor, eighteen additional votes, reduc ing Morris's apparent plurality to twen ty-seven. It is not decided yet whether either is elected. The legislature is Re publican. MINNESOTA. Governor Merriam Ke-electnd hy a Bare Plurality. St. Paul, Nov. 7.—With all but three counties reported in Minnesota, and most of them official, the vote for gov ernor stands: Merriam, R., 82,220; Wil son, D., 80,66.3; Owen, Alliance, 52,440; Merriam's plurality, 1557. The returns from the other counties, and the official figures from some of the counties already included, may change this a little, but not materially. Governor Merriam ran behind his ticket, and all the rest of the Republican state ticket is elected, save auditor, Biermann, I)., with Alliance en dorsement, securing that place. The Alliance vote will be increased by later figures from the filth district, which was its stronghold. Irs that district these seems no doubt that Halverson, Alli ance, is elected to congress by a plural ity of over 2000. Linde, R., wins over Baker, Alliance, in the second, by over 1000 plurality. NEW HAMPSHIRE. Republicans Going; to Use Their Power While It Lasts. Concord, N. H., Nov. 7.—A confer ence of prominent Republicans is being held to consider the legislative situation.

The Republican State Ticket Elected hy About 18,000. Dcs Moines, Nov. 7.—Returns received from ninety counties give McFarland 173.179, and Chamberlain 170,543, Mc- Farland's plurality, 2636. It is esti mated that the other nine counties will increase McFarland's plurality to 3901, a net gain of 10,500 over last year. This ensures the election of the entire Re publican state ticket, by about 4000 plurality. INDIANA. Only Two Republican Congressmen Creep In. Indianapolis, Nov. 7.—Official returns from the state at large are just begin ning to come in. The Democratic ma jority will be about 18,000.

Three Men Killed and Three Wounded in a Most Desperate Hand to Hand Encounter. Associated Press Dispatches. Lexington, Ky., Nov. 7. —A terrible election-day duel in Estill county, of which only meager mention was made in the dispatches Wednesday, turns out to have been one of the most desperate encounters ever witnessed in Kentucky. The men engaged in the affair were Dr. Lilly, a prominent young physician, and John Wilson, commissioner of com mon schools in Estill county. Lilly was a Republican and Wilson a Democrat. Lilly brought up a negro to the polls to vote, whom Wilson challenged. The judges sided with Wilson, and the negro was rejected. This fired up Lilly and hot words ensued, resulting in the drawing of pistols by both men. Lilly got his weapon out readily, while Wil ■on's hung in Lii pocket and was acci dentally discharged before he could level it. In the meantime he received two balls from his antagonist, both lodging near the heart. The wounds, however, were not immediately fatal, and the dreadful combat was continued. Wilson got his weapon free and fired two shots, one of which strck Lilly near the heart, About this time Wilson's brother in terfered, and succeeded in wresting Lilly's weapon from his hands. Nothing daunted him, however, and almost in the throes of death, he drew his knife and made several f ital stabs in his enemy's body. Both fell to the ground, but the terrible duel was not over. With his last eb bing strength, Wilson raised up ar.d fired the last load in hie pistol at Grant Lilly, the brother of Dr. Lilly, who had appeared on the scene, inflicting a fatal wound. Not satisfied with this, Wilson crawled over to where his antagonist had fallen and buried the hammer of his pistol in his head. Lilly died in a few minutes, while Wilson" lingered until next noon. In addition to the men already named as having been shot, three outside per sons received balls, but were not seri Golden Eagle Clothing Co. HARROWING ANNOUNCEMENT!
