COLUMBUS, O., Nov. 5.?The Ohio ]
] lature stands 74 Republicans, 70 <
rata and 1 doubtful on tho returns *
.. i up to to-night. With ft dozen j
r more of the S8 counties very close
,lir have been no material changes exI
t in WdoJ county, which will be
c!?*mcJ by both parties till the courts <
on the notion of the supervisors.
There have been no unusual proceedings
before the returning: board of any of
>e counties except that of Wood, although
both parties have had their repi
.M utatlves and attorneys in the county
seals wherever the vote was close.
Chairman McConville, of the Democratic
state committee. ha? not changed
li!- .-lainis of a Democratic majority on
joint ballot and will not do so till the official
returns of all counties are in and
show the final results to differ from those
he has at hand.
Chairman McConville and others from
the Democratic state headquarters went
to Cincinnati to-night to confer with Mr.
John it. McLean nnd other party leaders
regarding the contests that are to be
made In the close counties.
Chairman Nash insists to-night that
thtf legislature stands 75 Republicans to
70 Democrats, and the majority on Joint
ballot for senator will not be less than '
five. He says he is to-night satisfied j
with the situation In Wood county. What !
he feared was that the official count '
might wipe out the small Republican i
plurality In that county. Since the face i
of the official tally sheets shows a plu- I
rallty of :tl for the Republican represen- I
tatlve. Judge Nash says says he is will- I
ing and ready to "have any court pass on I
caae. ne sayn ine law yruviucn umi
th'- members of tho board of electloit
cannot behind the returns, and the
supreme court has held that they have
no ministerial powers whatever, cannot
hoar evidence or use their discretion in
throwing out any votes. That is left to
the court and to each branch of the legislature
In passing on the credentials of
Its members.
In Wood county to-day Norris, the Republican
candidate for representative,
filed a protest against tho board counting
the vote of Freedom township, be-*
cause the ballot should be tallied in
blocks of five.
This precinct gave Norrlfl 151 and
Mears, the Democratic candidate for rep-,
resentatlve, 2(5.1. If the vote of the township
had been thrown out, It will have
Increased the plurality of Norrls by 112,
but it wa:< counted. The Republicans
Insist that N vri- tvlll be declared elected
in Wood and that the legislature

COLUMBUS, Nov. 5.?Information
was rece ived at the state headquarters of
both parties tills afternoon that the Republicans
claimed the election of their
representative In Wood county by 2S and
th*1 Democrats claimed their representative
had a plurality of 14. When the
hoard of elections took Its noon recess at
ll?w!lng Oreen the two Democratic raemb"M
of the board of elections refused to
sign the official canvass of the vote of
Wood county unless the vote of one precinct
In Center township was thrown out.
The vote of this precinct makes a difference
of forty-two votes on tho Wood

the Republican representative will have '
a plurality of 28 and If It thrown nut the

COLUMBUS, 0., Nov. 5.?Hon. fharle
R. Kurtz, who was chairman of the Re
publican state committee In 1894 and 1895
says there is nothing whatever In thi
:alk about certain Republican member
5f the legislature combining with thi
Democrats to elect Governor Uushneil
i>r any other man senator In place o
Senator Hanna, who was endorsed bj
[he last Republican state convention fo
&oth the short and the full terms for sen

oir. j\ una any a no Jiepunucan mcniuc
?ouId afford to bolt th? caucus nomlna
lion, and he does not believe a single Re
publican member could be found wh<
would go Into such a combine.
As Chairman Kurtz was defeated fo
pe-electlon as chairman by Senator Han
na, and admits ho Is unfriendly to th
aenator himself, thin statement is be
leved to bo the last that will be heard o
:he combine against Hanna as the Re
publican senatorial nominee.
At Republican state headquarters tin
reports have never received any cred

a Special Dispatch to tho Intelligencer. wt
WASHINGTON, D. C., Nov. 5.-Hon. of
[ C. F. Scott, formerly of Parkersburg, ?
0 West Virginia, was the recipient of ha
- numerous congratulations upon hlsap- ini
f polntraent this afternoon as police Judge Jti
of the District of Columbia. As has ^
B been stated In the Intelligencer, tho 0f
- death of Judge Miller, of tho United en
States branch of the police court crea[
ted a vacancy which had to be filled at {n
once, the business of the court being wt
more than ono Judge can conveniently Pr
handle. Hence it was that steps were
at onco taken to acquaint the President ot|
d with the situation und urge him to has* tm
. ten the choice of a successor to the late frc
incumbent.
Judge Scott's friends moved lmmedl- f?
ately In his behalf. He had at his back ini
" JuKtlces Cole and McCombs, of tho

e mltteemnn for the district, Judge Jere J
e M. Wilson, and numerous others of the th
* district bar. The commander of George vo
1 J. Meade post of the G. A. It., of which w!
i Judge Scott is a member, In addition to V*
- others of the same order, was warmly lnl
e endorsed by Senator Elklns and the
i. Republican representatives in Congress 8ti
e from West Virginia. *d
A delegation callcd upon President tin
e McKlnley to-day In Judge Scott's In- as
e terest. It preceded a similar delega- W
tlon for another candidate, and there
were influences at work for yet other nr
- aspirants, one of whom was an Ohio Hi
V man, said to be endorsed l?y Senator Pn
f Hanna. r<'<
!? It may bo remarked that Judge Scott
c was himself a good enough Ohio man In
- to got Influential support from that
* state, and when ho had boon hoard the ?'l
I President directed Attorney General bo
i McKonna to make out a commission TI
0 for C. F. Scott, which was done, and la
J the same delivered this afternoon with es
f the big seal attached. It Is said PresI- Se
J dent McKlnley's long acquaintance tic
s with the West Virginia mnn prompted
him to say that It gave him much pleas
ure to confer the appointment upon him, Bp
1 nnd that ho was the more pleased after ]
- hearing the testimony as to his quail- j
1 flcatlons from those who knew the re- .'
* qulroments of the position.
1 Judge Scott will assume the duties wl
4 Monday. Tic has but. one day In which
r to wind up the business of his office as nil
- Justice of the peace. The new position ml
' pays $3,000 per annum. en
