Stevenson Will Wield the Gavel in the Senate. Reid Will Continue to Grind tbe Tiibnne Organ. A Democratic Landslide Strikes the United States. The* Republicans Lose New York, Illinois and Indiana. Muny Leaner State* In the Democratic Column —A Glorious Triumph for Honeat Government and Tarlfl' Iteform. By the Associated Press. Nkw York, Nov. B.—Chairman Har rity of the Democratic committee says he haß no doubt Cleveland and Steven son are elected. He claims New York, New Jersey, Indiana and Illinois, and thinks Harrieon has lost some of the western states. Cleveland about midnight began to receive telegrams of congratulation from his friends in this city. Most of the members of the campaign com mittee sent dispatches aspuring him of his election. Messrs. Whitney, Harrity and Dickinson all sent congrat ulations. Dickinson called on Cleve land about I:3U this morning and per sonally tendered his congratulations. ADLAI CONGRATULATED. Bloomlngton Ia Wild Over General Stevenson's Election. Bloomington, Nov. B.—Stevenson was busy all evening reading telegrams of congratulation from different parts of the country. At midnight a constant stream of friends was rushing to bis house to extend congratulations. M r.Steveneon, of course, expressed extreme gratifica tion at the result, and said he considered it due to the revolt on the part of the farmers and wage-earners against the McKinley tariff and high protective pol icy. The Democracy, said he, are under everlasting obligations to Senator Hill and Tammany for their splendid work. He could not too earnestly express his gratitude. At an early hour this (Wednesday) morning the city is bedlam. Bands of marching men with rockets a nd Roman candles and shrieking for Cleveland and Stevenson are parading the streets. HOPING AGAINST HOPE. Chairman Carter Holds That Harrison I* Elected. New York', Nov. B.—Chairman Carter saya: "Our Democratic frienda seem to have understood their party needs in the state of New York when they en acted the preaent ballot law. Unfor tunately the national committee relied npon three diatinct combinations, and two of them yet remain intact. In fact, even if the lose of New York is conceded, with Indiana the election of Harrison ia assured, and Republican victory in that etate ia assured. The vote of Indiana, added to the other Republi can votes in the electorial colleges, in sures the re-election of Preeident Harri son. Eliminating entirely from consid eration tbe etate of New York, the Re publicans can still elect, with the vote of Connecticut, West Virginia and Dela ware, without the vote of Indiana, but having the vote of Indiana assured, we are not driven to our third line. Ben jamin will be the next, president of the United Siatee by virtue of a majority of the votes cast in the electoral college." Chairman Carter iastied the following bulletin at midnight: "On returns re ceived by the Republican national com mittee at "midnight, Harrison and R-id have carried California, Maine, Massa chusetts, ten votes of Michigan, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Idaho, Colorado, Illi nois, lowa, Kansas, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Wisconsin, Montana, North Dakota, Bouth Dakota, Washington, Wyoming. Nebraska, Indiana and Dela ware, or 229 electoral votes, a majority LOS ANGELES HERALD. of cix in the electoral college. Our own advices at thia hour also show that we have more than an even chance to carry West Virginia." Whltelaw Hold's Organ Is Slow to Ac- N«w York, Nov. B.—The Tribune will tomorrow morning say: Returns received at the hour of writing are not satisfactory to the Republicans. . . It can only be said the returns are not at hand to justify the assertion that several great western states have given their electoral votes to Cleveland, and without those votes he is still in danger of disappointment. The Republicans failed to carry New York. The ma chinery in the great Democratic cities turned out majorities sufficient to over power the votes of the Re publican counties, which appear to have been down below the expect ations. In the absence of returns from any considerable part of New Jersey, it can only be assumed that the state has gone Democratic as ueual. Connecticut is claimed by both parties, but the returns appear to favor the Democrats. With New York, New Jersey and Con necticut, four or five probable votes from Michigan and the south made solid by fraud and wholesale denial of the rights of suffrage, Cleveland would have about 216 electoral votes, needing only those of Indiana and Illinois to as sure his election. At the present writing, Indiana and Illinois are claimed by both parties, but without pufiicient full returns to place the result in either state beyond doubt WEATHER CONDITIONS. An Almost Ideal Election Day All Over the Conntry. Chicago, Nov. 8. —Nearly an ideal election day throughout the United States was what weather reports from all sections of the conntry, gathered here, showed today. According to the official government dispatches, no serious ob stacle to free voting existed anywhere, from Maine to California. Telegrams from oil er sources rnf.de it certain that, despite the quietness of the campaign, interest has been of the most earnest description. Almost everywhere an unusually heavy vote was polled. The big storm that was yesterday re ported sweeping down in tbe form of a blizzard from the northwest, was today chasing from the St. Lawrence valley and out. into the Atlantic ocean. New York state, however, was cloudy, with no prospect of clearing, and threat ening in some parts of aft slight snow after last night's rain. New England reported some rain, but nothing serious. The southeast Atlantic btates sent word of occasional showers, but with these exceptions the almost unvarying report elsewhere was generally fair, particularly in the west. Michigan telegrams eaid it was snofring, but not much, and Southeast Texas wires stated that it was raining a little. The northwest was still somewhat arctic. Moorehead, Minn., had this cheerful intelligence: "len below, but getting warmer." Early advices from all over the coun try were to the effect that a very heavy vote was being polled, indicating that although the canvass had been phenom enally quiet, interest in the result was none the less earnest. THE OLD EMPIRE STATE CASTS HER VOTE FOR CLEVELAND AND STEVENSON. A Democratic Majority ln the City of 70,125-Thls Ear Exceeds the Republican Majority In the State. New York, Nov. B.—Tbe day dawned cloudy but coon cleared away and with delightfully mild temperature made an ideal day for polling. Advices indicate about tbe same conditions almost throughout the entire state. Voting began promptly, with large numbers around the polls, though the progress of the polling was somewhat delayed by the unfamiliarity of the voters with the Australian system. United Statea Commissioners Shields and Duel were kept uretty busy hearing the caaea of men arretted on the charge of illegal voting. Fully 60 were arrested before 10 o'clock. Among them were 20 from tbe city inetitutiona on Black well's island. At 9:30 Chairman Sheehan of the Democratic etate committee claimed that Cleveland had carried New York statx by at least 30,000 majority. A Herald bulletin cays Delaware has probably gone Republican. The Mail and Express says Cleve land's majority south of Yonker's will be 75,000. It claima that Harrison carries Connecticut by 1500. The city of Watertown, Jefferson couutv, N".

Philadelphia, Nov. 8. —The official count is progressing very Blowly, owing to tbe complicated ballot and the un usually heavy vote on the state ticket. It is generally conceded that Lilly and Major McDowell, Republican candidates for coDgressmen-at large, am. John Dean, for tbe supreme court, will be given a heavy msjority. Of Philadelphia's five congressional districts the Republicans carried the First, Second, Fourth and Fifth. The greatest interest centered in the Third, Samuel Randall's old district. Though heavily Democratic, it is con ceded that it has been carried by the present incumbent, McAleer, who is endorsed by the Republicans and Inde pendents.

NEW HAMPSHIRE. Bennle Seems to Have Carried the Gran ite State. Concord, N. H., Nov. B.—Returns will be very much later than in former years. The delay is owing to the secret ballot, which went into operation today. Several towns heard from by telephone and messenger show Democratic gains. In this city the Democrats gained heavily. Concord, Nov. B.—Returns from 22 towns and wards give Harrison, 2783; Cleveland, 2474; Bidwell, 149; scatter ing, 17.

There was no election for congressman in either of the two distric's. The R u publican can didates had a slight plurality. New Jersey. Jersey City, Nov. B.—Throughout the state of New Jersey the poll of votes is very heavy, and the amount of scratch ing is unprecedented. The voters of both parties, as a rule, voted the head of their ticket straight, but for governor and other candidate' the vote is mixed and very confusing. The Reading com bine bill was an important factor in the election in different sections, and local influence counted for more than party fealty. There were few incidents of an untoward nature during the day. Massachusetts. Boston, Nov. B.—A more glorious day for the election through New England, as far as atmospheric conditions are con cerned, could not be desired. The effect of perfect weather and the soft, warm air of the Indian summer made itself manifest in the enormous vote rolled up In Massachusetts it is Bate to say tbe vote is the largest ever cast. Reports from New Hampshire and Connecticut also indicate a large vote. The result will be slow returns. Eighty towns give Cleveland 14,754, Harrison 19,808, a net Democratic gain over 1888 of 665, and a Republican gain over 1801 of 410. MONTANA. Harrison Seems to Have Carried tne State by a Small' Morality. Helena, Mont., Nov. B.—The Austra lian system makes the count slow. Weather fine; vote heavy.

These incomplete returns show the following result: Cleveland, 21,606; Harrison, 16,361; Weaver, 1537; Bid well, 337. Complete returns from 35 out of 275 precincts in thia city giye Cleveland, 2752; Harrison, 2544; 241; Bid well, 67. The total vote i v< .eco ia 60, --749. Cleveland i S n \ otea more than Harrison. V over's vote is light. Complete retu as from 202 precincts in California out m oi San ""rancisco give Harrison 91 Si , Cleveland, 8408; Weaver, 1464. The total number of precinctt iv the atate outside el San Francisco is 1924. Complete returns from 51 precincts in 38 counties, give Harr son 1497; Cleve land, 1336; Weaver, 169 The aame in 1888, gave Harrison 1527- Cleveland, 1347, a net Republican losa of 37. Preliminary bulletina indicate that Weaver's vote waa drawn largely from the Kepublicane. The Republicans claim the entire Al ameda county ticket, with the exception of the sheriff and tax collector. It ie thought Ingler, Rep , for the assembly, has been defeated by McElroy, Dem. The Republicans claim that Hilborn, Rep., is elected congressman from the Third district. The People's party claim that Marion Cannon, Dem. and Pop., for congress from the Sixth district ia elected, while the Republicans claim the election of Hervey Lindley. In the Firat district Geary, Dem , is aaid to be re-elected. 3 a. m. —Following ia the result of the congressional election in California ao far as counted at this hour: Returnß from 37 out of 432 precincts in the First district give Davia, Rep., 1311; Geary, Dem., 1887. Forty out of 451 precincts in the Sec ond district give Davis,Rep., 1672; Cam inetii, Dem., 1773. Twenty-six out of 238 precincts in the Third dißt net give Hillborn, Rep., 1326; English, Dem., 1221. Twenty-nine out of 275 precincts in the Fourth district give Alexander, Rep., 1972; McGuire, Dem . 1742 Fourteen out of 184 in the Fifth give Loud, Rep., 684; Rvland, Dem , 674 Twenty out of 275 in the Sixth, give Lindley 755; Cannon, 1067.

Special (o the Herald,] Santa Ana, Cal., Nov. 8. — Cha Demo crats have certainly elected Theodore Lacy sheriff by an enormous majority. W. H. Bowers, the Democratic nominee for recorder; J. G. Scarborough, for dis trict attorney, and S. H. Finley, for sur veyor, on the Democratic ticket, are be lieved to be safe. Berck, the Repub lican nominee for clerk, is elected. Wellborn, the Democratic candidate for congress, is running ahead of his ticket, and may carry the county. The Demo crats have made material gains. Ben nett, the People's party and Democratic nominee for assemblyman, is believed to be elected. Manly, for state senator, is running ahead of his ticket. Returns received at 12:40 a.m. bear favorahle prospects for the Democratic four of the county candidates. They are surely elected, a gain of two over last year. Manly, for joint senator, is running well and polling his full party vote. C. F. Bennett, People's party and Democratic nominee for assembly, is probably elected by a email majority. Wellborn, for congress, and Cleveland are running ahead of the balance of the ticket. The Democrats here are cheer ing lustily, and feel that a great victory has been won. Returnß received at 12:40 a.m. leave the county election still in doubt. Brock, Rep., is elected coonty clerk; Lacy, Dem, sheriff; Bowers, Dom., recorder. The balance of the county ticket is in doubt. The Repub licans and Democrats both claim the surveyor, district attorney and treasurer. PRICE FIVE CENTS. The reeult of the senatorial and assem bly fight is doubtful. Cleveland and Wellborn are running a little ahead of the ticket. Both paities claim the couuty. The People's party vote in the county is about GOO; Prohibition, 200. The streets are throDged with good natured crowds. Santa Ana, Nov. B.—[By the Associ ated I're»s.] The election oaesed off pleasantly today. The People's party has polled about, 500 votes in the countr and probably elected C. F. Bennett to the assembly, who has received the Demo cratic endorsement. Harri6on will carry the county by about 100 majority, a h'sa over last election. Lacy, the Democratic nominee for sheriff, and Brock, the Re publican for county clerk, are certainly elected. Returns are coming in slowly. Monrovia Returns. Monrovia, Cal., Nov. 9.—The Austra lian system worked well. Lindlev was cut badly and ran over 30 votes behind in this precinct. The vote is: Harri sion, 92; Cleveland, 35; Bid well, 17; Weaver, 26; Lindley, 60; Cannon, 77; Andrue, -#9; Cline, 77; Marsh, 18; Rommell, 13; Ward, 87; Cullen, 33; Sonneman, 23: Durfy, 17; Banbury, 62; Shorb, 43; Wardall, 43; Yarnell, 12. ILLINOIS' GREAT SLUMP. THE SUCKEB STAT/ I CARRIED BY CLEVIS AM STEVE, The Plurality Estimated at from 5000 to 10,000— Altgeld Elected Governor and 12 Democratic Con gressmen Chosen. Chicago, Nov. 9.—12:30 a. m.— lodi* cations are that Illinois has gone for Cleveland and Stevenson by from 5000 to 10,000 plurality, and that the entire state Democratic ticket is elected. Late returns may change these figures, as country dis tricts yet to be heard from are likely to cut down the Damocraiie g-tina in the country precinct's. Chicago and Cook county will give Cleveland and Steven- Bon and Altgeld not less than 15, --000 plurality which will probably more than offset the Republican majority in the country precincts, ns the country thus far has shown the Harrison vote to be less than in 1888, when Harrison had a plurality of 22 000 in tbe whole state. Two hundred aud twenty precincts in the state, outeide of Chicago, give Har rison 41.259; Cleveland, 35,839 The same precincts in 1888 gave Harrison 38,748; Cleveland, 31,805, so Cleveland's net gain is 1523. The City Presa association claims that 500 precinctß out of 693 in Chicago give Cleveland 97,344; Harrison,72,l9o. This gives Cleveland a lead of 25,154 thus far in Cook county. Harrison's plurality in the state, outside of Cook county, in 1888, was 21,000, and as the country thus far showa a falling oft' of 1523, in 220 precinct", it would seem that the result must he very close, probably not over 5000 for Cleveland. The Democrata probably elected both congreasmen-at-large and carried not less than 10 of tre 20 congressional dis tricts of the state. Chicago, Nov. 8. —As the returns come in it ia conclusively demonstrated that Illinois today cast the heaviest vote in the history of the state. All parties ap pear to have polled practically their en tire votes. The surprise of the day in the city is the little disparity between the Cleveland and Altgeld vote. Scratch ing was unusually heavy. The probability ie that Cleveland has carried Illinoiß and that Altgeld the Democratic candidate for governor, is elected by 12,000 to 15,000 majority. Chicago will give the Democrats 30,000 majority, and the balance ol Cookconnty will reduce that to 25,000. Republican headquarters do not claim over 10,000 to 15,000 for Fifer outside of Cook county. The Dtily News extra at 10 p.m. claims Illinois for Cleveland by over 20 000. Returns from 12 nut of 67 counties show a gain for Cleveland of 4300. Chicago, Nov. 9 —The returns from Illinois are still incomplete at an early hour this morning, but the indications point to the carrying of the state by Cleveland and Stevenson, by a plurality of from 8000 to 10,000. It also appear! at this hour that the entire Democratic stale ticket is elected, and that the Democrats have a majority of the congressional delegation and tbe control uf both branches of the legisla ture. In view of the fact that the state isito be redistricted the coming winter, the election of the governor aud both branches of the legislature by the Democrats ie of the utmost importance to that party. The Republi cans, however, insist that there is a possibility of Republican mpremacy iv the lower house oi the general assembly. The Democratic victory is undoubtedly due to the large general defection of the German Lutheran votes irom the Republican party on the school law question. I*, is considered probable that the Democrats have elected two congres-men-atlarge, besides the congressmen in the second, third, fourth, eighth, ninth, twelfth, thir teenth, seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth districts. The Republicans have appnrai.tly elected the congress mpti in the hist, fifth, sixth, seventh and twentieth districts. THE BUCKEYE STATE. Harrison's Plurality In Ohio Estimated at About 23,000.
