But Read the Great, Grand and Glorious
Result.
ection day in Helena closed with the
snow storm of the season and the
lery Hakes proved bnt prophets of the
ical storm that raged yesterday from
and of Montana to the other and
red under deep and effectually the
ocratic candidate for Delegate to
pesa, Hon. W. A. Clark. Hon.
mas H. Carter, the gallant Republican
dard bearer, is now our Delegate to
;ress, the first Republican to hold that
b since Billy Claggett stepped down to
place to Maginnis 16 years ago. And
t is more, our able young delegate will
;o the National Capital with as big
ajority as that which sent Mr. Toole
:e two years ago, More, too, Montana
harmony with the new administra
and President Harrison will take the
r on the same day that Delegate Car
goes to Congress. It was a grand
glorious victory and Montana has
on to be proud of the noble
in which she spoke yesterday for Pro
ion, for Harrison and for Carter,
he election in Helena was the most ex
ag and animated we have seen for years,
m early hour five hundred people were
vded about the polls and so
scene remained all day. The vote
vy and fully polled. At the close it
i known almost to a certainty that Car
was ahead, but the final count was not
ipleted till early this morning,
ly 4 o'clock in the afternoon a large
wd besieged the Hebald office, where
letins were out from that time until
sr midnight.
HEABIXG THE SEWS,
he first encouraging news came from
te and Billings for Carter ; then Deer
i
?
/
Lodge, Anaconda, Missoula and Helena
were announced Republican, and that
settled the question. By 7 o'clock it was
known almost to a oertainty that Mr.
Carter was elected, and the surging crowd of
five hundred people watching the Her
ALD's stereopticou bulletins cheered en
thusiastically as fce majorities from the
West and North came rolling in. At nine
o'clock the enthusiasm could no longer be
restrained and about 300 Republicans,
headed by a brass band, started on a
triumphal march through the city and pro
ceeded to the residence of Mr. Carter,
where they serenaded our next Delegate.
They afterwards returned to the Hebald
office and stood until after midnight
watching the bulletins and cheering for
Harrison and Carter. It was a great night
indeed, and never did Helena see such en
thusiasm on the close of election day.
GATHERING THE RETURNS.
Returns were receivod by the Hebald's
special wire in the counting room, where
Operator Wheaton took the good news off
the wire with his accustomed facility.
From the Herald's special service, the
Western Union and the Associated Press
service, the Hebald was enabled to re
cieve the news promptly and announce it
ahead of any other newspaper by means
of an illuminated bulletin worked by a
stereopticon. It was a novel style of bul
letin service and proved eminently satis
factory as the cheering hundreds
watching its changing shadows last night
will testify.
Following are returns that came in by
the Hebald's special service:

the Herald.]—Carter will make a sweep on

The M orld Concedes Harrison's Elec
tion.
New York, November 7.—An "extra"
of the World (Dem.) says: At 7 o'clock
the probabilities are that Gen. Benjamin
Harrison, of Indiana, ha» Wen chosen
President of the nation, and Levi P. Mor
ton, of New York, Vice-President. The
returns thus far received indicate that the
tariff reform issue proved strongest and
the State is hopelessly Republican. In
Illinios, Minnesota, Iowa and Nebraska
the Democratic ticket made large gains
upon the lines foreshadowed in the recent
tariff" debate in the Honse. These gains»
though encouraging, have not bean suf
ficient to offset Republican majorities.
The Tribune's Figures.
New Yobk, November 7.—The Tribune
says: The House of Representatives in
the fifty-first Congress will be Republican
by from 20 to 25 majority. The indica
tions are that this may be slightly in
creased. The New York delegation will
stand 18 Republicans and 16 Democrats.
In Connecticut the Republicans gain
two Congressmen and in New Jersey they
lose one. Some notable gains are recorded
