If Boies's plurality is 8000, the rest of the Democratic ticket is elected by small pluralities. The Republicans have some hopes for ■ Van Houteu, for lieutenant-governor.

The Herald says: "We are convinced that the election of Flower will prove to be sort of a boomerang to the Demo cratic party in the presidential campaign next year and a blessing in disguise to the Republicans." clrvkland's opinion. Ex-President Cleveland today gave bis opinion on the result of the election: "Any man who still thinks tariff reform settled and an obsolete issue, or that the importance of sound and safe money, questions upon which the people can be blinded, is either wilfully wrong or dan ' gerously dull. It seems to me, too, that the Democrats ought to be satisfied that staunch adher ence to the principles of their party does not require the abuse of those who show an inclination to help us. I very much regret the defeat of Governor Campbell. He has been a brave and honest official. This, and the splendid canvass he made, entitled him to success. While the election of Flower, Russell and Boies ought to cause the ut most rejoicing among Democrats, they should not forget that with these things comes the obligation to be true to the people, honest in the advocacy of our people, and decent in all things."

He jtjl? made the best fight they could tjFCo© face of a Republican majority of 11,000 to start on and the com bined opposition of the manufacturers and capitalists. Besides all this, it was a life and death struggle with the Re publican party. To defeat Major Mc- Kinley one of ita national leaders and the representative of its chosen idea, protection, meant the downfall and dis integration of the party itself. Party lines were closely drawn, he said. * i 4 MASSACHUSETTS. Governor BnssaU's Plurality I« Over sOoO—tha Legislature BepnbUean.

R The ■•Hiinort to Be Attacked and I ili fornla Sea Ports B omhardetl. Lies of British Naval Officers. Associated Press Dispatches. Valparaiso, Chile, Nov. 4.—The dis covery of a plot to assassinate Colonel Canto created great excitement here to day. Canto led the forces of the Junta which landed at Quintero bay, and Which after a aeries of fights, captured Valparaiso and led to the downfall of Balmaceda. He has as a consequence been the object of the cordial hatred of such of tha partisans of the late president as are still in the country. It was among these tbat the plot was discovered. Just how the clew* came - iftto the hands of the authorities and ; ti»efull details have not been made pub lic, but enough is known to indicate that Canto had a narrow escape from :|eath. _ WAR INEVITABLE. v 'A Rumor That Chile Is Going; to Move On Our Works. ' London, Nov. 4.—A private Valpar aiso dispatch says: There is reason to be lieve that the Chileans, believing war inevitable, will not allow the United States to select their own time to declare war, but will suddenly give Egan his passport and at once attack tbe Balti more, so as to have the advantage of the first blow. It is not believed among the foreign residents of Valparaiso that the other foreign men-of-war in Valparaiso harbor would permit this treacherous act, but Captain Schley is keeping a vig ilant lookout. A LESSON TO CONGRESS. New York, Nov. 4.—A Washington special says: The suggestion that San Francisco might be bombarded by war ships of Chile ought to carry a lesson to congress and the country. It is a seri ous fact tbat San Francisco would be to day at . the mercy of the Chilean Host, and, while the existing forts would en able us probably to prevent the approach of auch a fleet, the warning is none the less clear to put the Pacific coast in a proper state of defense. Chile is not the only or the chief power to be guarded against, and even defense against Chile's crippled navy might take away the torpedoes, guns and mortars intended for the Atlantic coast, and per haps needed- here, should, the captain Pratt be free at the right moment to at tack. What then can be done to pro vide proper defences for San Francisco ? One specific thing is the establishment at Benicia or elsewhere in California of a government gun factory like those now existing at West Troy for the army, and at Washington for the navy. CONCILIATORY TALK. New York, Nov. 4.—The Valparaiso correspondent of the Herald says: "I am just in receipt ot a report from San tiago to the effect that Minister of For eign Affairs Matta has sent a dispatch to Minister Egan relative to the Balti more affair. It is said to be couched in a conciliatory tone, and to evince in every way a desire to ccc that justice is done as Boon as tho inquiry in this city is con cluded." A FAI.SU REPORT. Washington, Nov. 4.—The dispatch stating that the three commissioners for the world's fair in Chile have been with drawn by order of the director-general is pronounced at headquarters in the Pan-American bureau In this city abso lutely false in every particular. • BRITISH FABRICATION. Officers of B. M. S. Champion Malign the V. H. 8. Baltimore. Victoria, Nov. 4. —The officers of H. M. 8. Champion, which arrived last evening, state: "Everybody who knows anything of the subject'(and we saw the whole maneuver) is very bitter against tbe United States steamer Balti more for her action in making herself a spy on the Congressionalists. Tbey landed at Quinteros and marched to Concon. At the time we were lying alongside the Baltimore at Valparaiso. The Baltimore steamed around the point to Quinteros, watohed the entire landing of the troops and then returned and went deliberately to tbe government wharf at Valparaiso. She was at once boarded by a government official, and the next day the newspa pers came out with flaring headlines, stating that owing to the kindness of the American officers, the government was in possession of the facts that the revolutionists were marching on Concon. It was an unar countable act, and coming as it did from tbe flagship of the squad ron of a nation priding itself on justice and fair dealing, it was astound ing." The officers furnish an inteiest ing account of the war, hav ing been spectators of most of it. Exhaustive reports of battles, naval engagements and everything that could furnish a lesson for modern war have been forwarded to the British au thorities. The Champion's officers were ban queted by the Congreasionalist leaders before leaving, as a mark of apprecia tion of their conduct during the war. According to Captain Scott, of the steamer West Indian, a band of organ ized garroters is responsible for the murder of the Americans at Valparaiso. Tbe Chileans are prepared to fight, r.ither than accept the responsibility. San Francisco, Nov. 4.—The Victoria story of the actions of the United States steamer Baltimore at Valparaiso is re garded with incredulity here. The , charges of acting as a spy have hereto fore all been directed against the cruiser San Francisco. The Baltimore was not at Valparaiso at tbe time. CAIII.K FLASH KB.

REVOLUTION IN BRAZIL. SENSATIONAL REPORTS FROM THE EMPIRE REPUBLIC i Congress Dissolved and Martial Law De clared in Bio and Throughout the Provinces — The Inadequacy of th* United States Navy Again Felt. * London, Nov. 4.—A dispatch received here from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, brings news of what seems to be another rev olution. Congress, the dispatch says, has been dissolved, and martial law has been proclaimed at Rio de Janeiro and throughout tbe provinces. The cable gram announces that a dictatorship has been established in Brazil. BRITISH INVESTORS SCARED. Fuller dispatches regarding the rev olution announced to have broken out in Brazil are anxiously awaited here by financiers and merchants who have laTge interests at stake in that country. The pope has expressed the hope that the news received is not as serious as at first outlined. London, Nov. 4.—The Times's Rio de Janeiro correspondent says troops are guarding the public buildings. THE CAUSE OF THE CRISIS. Lisbon, Nov. 4.—A cipher dispatch from Rio de Janeiro attributes the crisis there to the action of the Brazilian con gress in passing a bill depriving the president of the right of veto. All tele grams are subject to strict censorship. our inadequate navy. Washington, Nov. 4.—The reported revolutionary movement in Brazil, ac companied by a declaration of martial law and the establishment of a dictator ship, is likely !o cause another demand upon the already strained resources of the navy; for it is regarded necessary for the protection of American interests that a naval force be at hand there in case of a formida ble outbreak. The only vessels attached to the South Atlantic station in the vicinity of Rio de Janeiro, are the Essex and Tallapoosa. The first is an old wooden cruiser, the second is worn out and offered for sale. The Boston is somewhere off the Brazilian coast, en route to the Pacific, but it is not prob able that she will be detained. The Yorktown, however, was at Bahia, Brazil, Saturday, and will probably be ordered by cable to remain there or re turn to Santos, notwithstanding the fact that she is also on the way to the Pacific station. Meanwhile the work of repair on tbe Newark at Boston is being pressed, and in a case of emergency, Ad miral Ghenardi's flagship, the Philadel fhia, now on the way to the West ndies from New York, could be ordered by cable to proceed to Rio de Janeiro.
