"^UMTxLYI---NUM1]ER 03. WHEELING. W. YA., THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 1897. PRICE TWO CENT8. aTbvcoons if you please. UTTiU, I Gue?? Y?t." COLUMBUS, Ohk>, Nov. 3.?Unofllclol but complete returns show a Republican plurality of 26,520 In Ohio. Both sides still claim a majority of the legislature, Republicans by five; Democrats by three majority. f I COLUMBUS, O.. Nov. 3. ? This has ' been a day of anxiety with the Ohio politicians. It opened with the Republicans nnd Democrats both claiming the election of their state tickets and a majority of the members of ?he legislature. Before noon, however, the Democrats conceded the election of the Republican state ticket by larger pluralities than were given lust night in the earliest of these dispatches as the claims of the Republicans. To-nSght the Democratic state committee announced no definite rlalms on the legislature, and the Republican committee raised Its claims to n majority of Ave on Joint bulloi, as follows: Senate?17 Republicans, 19 Democrats. House?58 Republicans. 51 Democrats. Total?75 Republicans, 70 Democrats. Wood county has bwn conceded to the Democrats until to-night, when the complete returns caused the Republicans to claim it. On the returns complete at Republican headquarters the Democrats will have a majority of two In the senate and the Republicans reven in the house. In these claims the fuMonists from Cincinnati are all counted oh Democratic. The Republicans can organ fxo the house without fusion. There is only one of the four senators elected on the fusion tlqkot In Cincinnati who 1s a Republican, and he now becomes a factor. If Senator Volght, of Cincinnati, who Is a Republican elected on tho fusion ticket, should vote with the Republicans on the organization of the senate or on anything else that body will be a tie, with 1 / eu t e na n t - Governor Jones, Republican, having the deciding vote. If the Democrats had secured a majority of the legislature, or the fu?ioni-?ts held the balance of power. It is said the fuslonists would have voted with the Democrats. WHAT RCPUBLILCANB EXPECT. Tho Republicans now expect two or more of the fusion Republicans to vote with them for senator, in which event they claim a majority of seven on Joint ballot, with 77 Republicans and 68 Democrats. None of the fusion votes for senator were counted on by the Republican manager! In the event they would be needed by the Democrats to elect their nomlnt' . but now many simulations are made al*>ut the fusion votes. When it wns thought to-day that the control of the 1 'glfdature mlirht depend upon one vote there was apprehension of trouble in ?> >nv* counties. TOmtssartes were ? rit out from stat-* headquarters to elor*' counties to wateh the counting. The Ohio law provides that "not l"ss I than one nor more thnn live days from the date of e|"etlon tit- deputy state supervis.,r? in each uinty shall begin the omclal canv i f the vote, and oontlnuo from day to day nil completed/' In event of protract" l contests In the close counties the hu??|m ii.m. of to-day might have b-en continual until the legislature met next January.

And thfs* may allow the close margin of the Republicans on Joint ballot for senator to go uncontested In any of the close counties or before the committee on elections In the general assembly There 1s another alleged movement which Is causing much comment, and that Is the rumor that Governor Hushnell will be brought out for senator against Marcus A. Hanna. Allen 0. I Myers, one of the manugers at Democratic headquarters announced to'-nlght that Senator Hanna would never be ' elected to the senate on the close Joint majority that Isclaimed, although Hanna had been endorsed by the last Republican convention, the same as Foraker was endorsed by the Republican state convention tiro years ago. Mr. Myers said that If the close call on the legislature went against tho Democrats in the official count of the close counties that the Democrats would Join with a dozen or more Republican members of that body in electing Bushnell Instead of Hanna to the senate. Governor Bushnell and all others Involved In this movement deny any knowledge of It or that they would have anything to do with it. McCONVILLE'S CLAIMS. a# Hnth Rmmhliean and Demo cratlc state headquarters to-night figures are being substituted for the claims of last night and to-day. Chairman MoConvllle, of the Democratic state committees, concedes the defeat of his state ticket, but statee that they have reduced the Republican plurality ol 51,000 of last year by over one-half. Although others at Democratic state headquarters concede that the legislature will be Republican on a close majority of one or more. Chairman McConvllle does not concede the control of that body to tho Republicans. He Qh&fgefi frauds in Noble and Wood counties amj In tho Marlon-Logan district In the event of the Republicans securing tho legislature on as close a margin as is now claimed by them and not conceded by the Democrats, Chairman McConville predicts that Senator Hanna will secure tho caucus nomination but fall of election, as did Dr. Godfrey Hunter, at Frankfort, Ky., last winter. There are reports to-night that certain antlljanna Republicans and Democratic managers have held conferences for a combination to bring out another man If Governor Bushnell refuses to allow tho use of his name for senator. The Republicans claim Chat tho organization of the senate depends upon the attitude of Senator Volght, of Cincinnati, who Is a Fusion Republican. The Republican state committee claims that the two representatives from Summit county are the only ones in doubt to-night and that the returns show tho house to stand fifty-eight Republicans, forty-nine Democrats and two doubtful, and that In tlfelr claims of sevetUy-flve to seventy with a majority of Ave on Joint ballot for senator they have so far conceded Summit county to the Democrats, although they expect the official count to give them at least one of the two representatives from that county. Flrtt Time In Thirty Year*. SPRINGFIELD. O.. Nov. 3.-Gover nor Bushnell arrived home this evening. On learning of bis return on Impromptu parade ws?
