CHICAGO, Nov. 10.—An error has been discovered in footing up the returns of the second senatorial district and it now appears Kinney, the democratic candi date for representative, was elected, in stead of Hopper, republican, as reported. Owing to this fact the two parties have been thought to be a tie in the legisla ture. This discovery is of considerable importance. If the official count veri fies the election of Kinney, the demo crats will have 102 votes in the assembly and the republicans but 100, thus making the election of John M. Palmer to the United States senate the next thing to a certainty. Excitement on Wall Street.

The power of the "bean was concentrated upon the Villard shares, and stocks as a rule would un doubtedly have advaooed had it not been .tor the depressing influenoe of the slump in those shares. The movement proba bly winds up the last combination in Wall street The stocks being well dis tributed and the general business of the oountrv in a prosperous condition, which the adjustment of the existing railroad difficulties has brought about, and an easier money market assured, there will be an improvement in the stock market.

Merriam 'Way Ahead. ST. PAUL, Nov. 6.—Election returns have been coming in slowly to-day and to-night both committees still claim the state ticket, the'democrats by 600 and the republicans by 3,000. Official returns and careful esti mates from all but seven counties in the state give Merriam 83.658, Wilson 76,8448 Merriam's plurality 7,310. The alliance vote Is considerably above 40,000. In the Fifth congressional district Halverson, ailiance, seems to have been elected over Comstock and Whitman, while in the Second district Baker now claims the de feat of Lind and his own election. This would wipe out oar republican delegation in congress completely. Sufficient returns to substantiate Bakers claim have not yet been received, but the vote for congress man in the Second district will be very close. Desperate Democrats. DULUTH. Minn., Nov. 6.—The democrats of St. Louis county are considering the matter of taking steps to have the vote of the towns of Duluth and Breitung thrown out on the ground that the proper polling place in the former district was at the poor farm, whereas the election was held at Lakeside, contrary to the advice of the attorney-general. They propose to have the vote of Breitung, which includes Tow er, thrown out on the ground that men were naturalized on Monday preceding the election, and registered contrary to the provisions of the Whitman election law. If this vote is thrown out it will re duce Merriam's plurality in the county over Wilson by 677 votes and elect a democratic county attorney and democratic surveyor, superintendent of schools, clerk of court and alliance and democratic candidate to the legislature. The only thing that de ters them is the fear of Injury to Whk man's chances for congress. Death of Greever. KANSAS CITY, MO., Nov. 8.—David A. Greever, the wealthy cattleman who was shot Friday afternoon by Charles Clif ford, a New York lightweight pugilist, died from the effects of his wounds this afternoon. Clifford will be arraigned Monday, charged with murder. A Good Republican Majority. PHILADELPHIA, NOV. Of the 204 members of the house of representatives elected yesterday, 128 are republicans, 79 democrats and 2 independents. This gives the republicans 56 majority on joint bal lot. Death From Surprise, EAU CLAIRE, if Nov. 6. —Isidore COOK, elected sheriff, Tuesday, on the democratic ticket, died this morning from a collapse following the excitement caused by the success of bis party. REPUBLICANS DIDN'T VOTE. That is the Principal Be anon Why They Were Defeated In Wisconsin. MADISON, Wis., Nov. 6.—In an interview with Governor Hoard to-night he said: "It is impossible for me to generalize any par ticular statement concerning Tuesday's re sult. The very best politicians in both parties are unable yet to give any intelli gent judgment as to the causes. Of one thing 1 am assured, and that is, that the republicans were defeated by a stay-at home vote. In Dane county, alone, over 1,300 republicans did not vote. It was largely so all over the state. The demo cratic vote is not increased over that of two years ago." A MAJORITY OF ONE. General Palmer Claims That the Illinois Legislature Will be Democratic. SPRINGFIELD, Nov. 6.—General Palmer this evening received a telegram from Carthage saying that Edwards and Mey ers, two democrats, are shown by the of ficial count to have been elected to the legislature. General Palmer, on reading this dispatch, said: "This makes 103 dem ocrats on joint ballot, a majority of one." The 108, the general explained, included the Farmers' Mutual Benefit association men, all three of whom he claimed were pledged to his support on the ballot tor United States senator. Warwick's Majority Over McKinley. CLEVELAND, O., Nov. 6.—With the official returns from Wayne, Holmeg and Medina counties, and coiupldte utTdmciai returns from Starke county, Warwick's majority over McKinley in the Sixteenth district, is 220. The republican state com mittee still claim the election of Poorman, republican, in the Seventeenth district, over Pearson. No returns have been re ceived from one county. It is known that Poorman made heavy gains in his own (Belmont) county, and as the district was only about 500 democratic, the republicans believe they have ground for the claim. New Hampshire Very Close. CONCORD, Nov. 6.—Returns from all but nine small towns give Tuttle (rep.) for governor 40,568. Amsdeni (dem.) 40,000, Fletcher (pro.) 1,272. The republicans claim ten to twenty majority in the house and the democrats from two to sixteen. The result will hinge upon the question of the admission of members elected under the new census apportionment and "classed towns," where the population has decreased. A good deal depends upon thw course taken by the republican clerk of the last house, who makes up the roll. Latest Returns From Illinois. CHICAGO, MO V. 6.—Eghty-four counties in Illinois, including Cook, out of a total of 102, give Amberg, republican, for state treasurer, a plurality of 2.811 over Wilson, democrat. Raab, for state superintendent of public instruction, has a plurality of 31,728 over Edwards, republican. Raab carried by a heavy majority not only Cook county, in which Chicago is situated, but also had a long lead throughout ttie state generally. Harrison's majority. in the state in 1888 was 22,000. Not Much Chance In Kansas. KANSAS CITY, NOV. 6.—Returns received to-day from Kansas do not change the situation materially, as announced hereto fore. The only positive change is the cer tain election of Broderick, republican over Moonlight, democrat, in the First con gressional district. This will majce the Kansas delegation stand: Republicans, 2 farmers' alliance, 5. The state ticket is still in doubt, with the chances favoring the farmers' alliance. McFarland's Plurality. DES MOINES, NOV. 6.—Complete unofii ial returns from seventy-four counties give McFarland, republican, for secretary of state, 146,607 Chamberlain, democrat, 146, 152, a gain os 7,788 over last year's vote. Twenty-five counties unreported gave Hutchinson, republican, for governor. 650 plurality in 1889. This indicates the elec tion of McFarland by 3,600 plurality and the balance of the republican state ticket by pluralities somewhat smaller. North Cerollna. RALEIGH, N. C., Nov. 6.—The majority of the democratic state ticket is estimated at 40,000. The congressional deleeation stands 8 democrats and 5 republicans. The legislature is largely democratic. Oklahoma All Right. GUTHRIE, NOV, 6.—Oklahoma territory went republican. Harvey, the republican candidate for delegate to congress, is elected to congress by 1,878 plurality. Bynum Would Like to be Speaker. INDIANAPOLIS, NOV. 6.—William D. By num, who has just been elected to con gress for the fourth term from this dis trict, will be a candidate for speaker of the new house. Bynum's majority is 4,500, be ing the largest he ever received, and is nearly three times as large as his majority two years ago. He said to-night to a rep resentative of the Associated Press: "1 am a candidate for speaker, and think that my chances of being elected are 'excellent. I think so, for the reason that 1 believe that the propriety of putting northern and western men in the chair of the house will be recognized by a majority of the democratic members, and becausc of the political position which Indiana occupies, and the relations which th$ Indiana demo crats hold to the natioal organization. ANOTHER CANDIDATE. MACON, Ga., Nov. 6.—In the daily Tele graph to-morrow, Congressman JameB H. Blount of the Sixth Georgia district, will be announced as a candidate for speaker of the next house of representatives. Mrs. Parsons Still In Jail. NEWARK, N. J., Nov. 8.—Mrs. Luoy Parsons and her eight anarchist friends are still in jail, she and four of the men being unable to procure bail. ."Five other anarchists were unable to pay their fines. HughO. Pentecost called on Mrs. Parsons this afternoon, but was refused admission to jail. Pentecost strongly condemns the action of the po lice in preventing the meeting and mak ing arrests. There has been so much of the anarchistic element displaying itself here recently that, the ponce deter mined to crush it out. There is a flour ishing international socialist society here, composed mainly of Russians, Poles and Germans, and meetings areheld frequent ly. The polioe say they will allow no more public anarchistic oelebrations. Reeeptlon to Dillon and O'Brien, PHILADELPHIA, NOV. 6.—Dillon and O'Brien, the Irish leaders, were given their first public reception in America at the academy of music in this city to-night, a la^e and enthusiastic crowd being pres ent PIERRE REJOICING. The Latest Returns Give Pierre the Permanent Capital by 11„000 Majority. Since the News Was Received at Pierre the Citizens Have Been Celebrating, And the City on Wednesday Night Was a Perfect Bedlam Till Horning, Whistles Blowing, Bells Ringing, People Shouting, Bands Play ing, Processions Moving'. Col. Price of Sedalia, Mo., Shot by Judge Higgins of the Pitts County Court. 11,000 Majority for Pierre, PIERRE, S. D., NOV. 6.—The scene in this city since the news that Pierre had received a big majority over Huron for the permanent capital beggars description. All night long crowds surged back and forth through the principal streets headed by bands and with transparencies, and the town was a perfect bedlam until daylight this morning. It was impossible to main tain order and the place was turned over to the howling but good natured mob. Each train brought hundreds of Pierre's workers and others who came to join in the celebration. The bulletin board was closely watched and each fresh telegram that came in favorable to Pierre added re newed fury to the rejoicings until the whole population seemed to have been driven insane. To strangers the scene was incomprehensible, but to the Pierre citizen it can easily be understood. People have been fighting for the capital of South Dakota for eight long years. Once the leg islature at Bismarck passed a bill making Pierre the capital, but the bill was vetoed by Governor Pierce, and again the capital commission of 1887 decided on Pierre, but changed their minds. Last year Pierre won the temporary capital and now comes a complete victory, and therefore the peo ple cannot be blamed for their overjoyous liess. Crowds kept on the streets and as evening drew near it increased and to night the celebration keeps up. Red lights, fireworks und illuminations are being dis played, whistles are blowing, bells ring ing and the shouts and hurrahs of the crowd are mixed up in one grand bedlam. Never before was there such a scene in the state. A party of Pierre's workers who came in on the evening train are being carried up and down the streets on the shoulders of the crowd. There is no doubt but that this will keep up all night. The latest reports give Pierre 5,500 major ity east of the river and 6,000 in the Black Hills, thus giving Pierre 11,500 majority. Col. Price Shot. SEDALIA, MO., Nov. 6.—Col. Thomas B. Price, president of the Gazette Printing company of this city, owner of the Vandal farm mid one of the best known men in Missouri, was shot and mortally wounded at 5 o'clock this afternoon by Judge John Higgins of the Pitts county court. Both men were eu route to their homes on the Missouri Pacific train. Judge Higgins was a candidate for renomination before the democratic county convention and was defeated by Price. Since then he has en tertained a hitter feeling against Price. The two men were in this city on business to-day and took the afternoon train for their homes. Just what led to the trouble is not known, but Price and Higgins en gaged in a quarrel. Higgins drew his re volver and shot Price in the abdomen. Price was taken to his home at Houstonia, where Higgins also lives. Higgins gave himself up to the authorities at that place, and the sheriff here received a message this evening summoning him to go after the prisoner at once, as'fears of lynching are entertained. Colonel Price is a very prominent Mason and is very popular among a large following. A special train has gone from here bearing physicians to attend the wounded mau. The train also carried a large number of Price's relatives. WAS IT BLACKMATL? A Kansas City Man Shot by a Drummer in His Wife's Room. KANSAS CITY. NOV. 6.—D. A. Greeve", a well known cattle dealer of this city, was shot and fatally wounded by Charles Clif ford, a New Tork traveling salesman at hotel Andrews. Greever Had paid consid erable attention to Mrs. Clifford, and her husband suspected that their relations were not entirely innocent He found them in a room together and Mrs. Clifford said Greever insulted her, whereupon Clif ford fired four shots, striking Greever in the side. He will die. Greever says it was a case of attempted blackmail., A Bad Man Killed. MONTGOMERY, Ala., Nov. 6,—Ex-Mayor Cottrell of Key West, who a few weeks ago terrorized the Florida federal officials and escaped to Alabama, a fugitive from justice, was shotatad instantly killed at 11 o'clock this morning by Chief of Police Gerald, of this city. Cottrell was druuk last night and was arrested by the police. He insulted the chief and challenged him to fight a due'.. The chief, who in conse quence of the threats of Cottrell had armed Himself with a double-barreled shot gun, was sitting outside of his office this morn ing when Cottrell drovjB up in a cab. Altera few words had been exchanged both men began firing, with the result idven above. Dan's Trade Review. NEW YORK, Nov. 7.—R G. Dun & Co/s Weekly Review of Trade says: "The vol ume of business, both .domestic and for eign, continues large beyond precedent and in character prosperous. The elec tion interrupted business but little, and the result has no preoeptible effeot as yet upon trade, thom^r some fear of ex tension of manufadr^ts may be oheoked by uncertainty. Thtroonetary situation is substantially unchanged. Reports from all parts of the country show that business is large and healthy. Chinese Blown to Atom*. SHANGHAI, Nov. 7.—A terrible aocident occurred at Tai Ping Fu, at which place are situated the government mills for the the manufacture of powder. While the workmen were employed about the mills an explosion occurred which entirely de molished th6 buildings. The loss of life was enormous, 200 porsona being killed. The cause of the explosion is not known. SOUTH DAKOTA. It Is Katlmared that the Republicans Will Have a Small Majority in the Legisla ture. Sioux FALLS, S. D., Nov. 7.—This morning's press has the following in re gard to the legislature: ."From reports received from every senatorial district except two and from every representa tive district except eight, it is figured that the republicans will have a certain majority in the house and possibly a ma jority in the senate. There are forty-five members in the senate and the returns show that the republicans have elected twenty-two and the fusionists twenty one with two districts yet to hear from, the Twenty-fifth and Thirty-seventh. In the house there are 124 members, of which the republicans have elected sixty one and the fusionists fifty-three, with eight districts, having eleven members, yet to hear from. Carland, democrat, in this county, is defeated for the sen ate by less than fifty votes. Many demo crats claim he is elected and will try to get a recount in hopes of pulling him through. Some of the candidates are howling fraud and threatening contests. Mellette is surely elected governor by a small plurality, with Loucks, independ ent, second. Pierre's majority for per manent capital will be about 8,000. INDEPENDENTS DIE HARD. HURON, S. D., Nov. 7.—The independ ents no longer claim the election of Loucks for governor. They concede Mellette's success, but grit their teeth as they do so. From all reports here the republicans have certainly carried the legislature, as they are known to have 77 members and only require eight more to make a majority. For theEe they have twelve counties to hear from. The inde pendents now claim only 69, but five of these are in doubt and possibly more. The democrats claim 24. Huron has not conceded the capital to Pierre yet. A DEMOCRATIC VIEW. YANKTON, S. D., NOV. 7. Chairman Peemiller of the democratic state cen tral committee has received advices this afternoon from points over the state whioh lead him to claim the election of Taylor, democrat, for governor over Mellette by a slight plurality. He also claims that Weeks, democrat, for auditor has defeated W. W. Taylor, republican. Peemiller concedes the election of Pick ler and Gamble £nd all the republican state ticket with the exceptions. He thinks the legislature will be almost evenly divided between the parties. This would mean the defeat of Moody for senator and more than probably the elec tion of Bartlett Tripp to succeed him. It is also rumored that Loucks, the Farm ers' Alliance candidate for governor, is elected by a small plurality, but this re port is disbelieved. ANARCHISTS ARRESTED. Wnlle Mrs. Pamons was Addressing a Crowd, She and a Number of Others Were Arrested. NEW YORK, Nov. 7.—A week ago Saen- ger hall was hired by people represent ing the International Workingmen's so ciety. The proprietor of the hall did not know that the people were anarchists until the bills were posted throughout the city announcing the celebration of the third anniversary of the hanging of the Chicago anarchists. Lucy Parsons, Herr Most and Hugh O. Penticost were advertised as speakers. When the the speakers appeared this evening the proprietor refused to allow them to enter the hall. A big crowd had congregated in the street, and Mrs. Parsons mounted the hall steps and began to harangue the crowd. Polioe Captain Glorie stepped up and warned her to desist. She defied him with strong language and several anarohists urged her to continue. The captain gave a signal and officers and de tectives grabbed the ring leaders in short order and marched them to the fourth precinct station. Those arrested are Ja cob Dick, John Schmidt, Edward Klnmp, Englebert Hummer, Simeon Cortman, Charles Yager, Adam Dasing, Sebastian Mohr and Mrs. Parsons. Herr Most escaped in the crowd. The pris oners will be examined in the morning. DIDN'T LIKE RELIGIOUS WORK, Why the Wife of a New Jersey Pastor Se cured a Divorce at Fargo. PASSAIC, N. J., Nov. 7.—No little sur prise was caused in this city by a dis patch from Fargo, N. D., announcing that Mrs. Howland, the wife of the Rev. William Howland, rector of St. John's Episcopal church this city, had se cured a divorce from her husband, awarding her the custody of their bright little 6-year-old daughter and alimony of (3,600 a year. The pastor's salary is but $1,500. How he can be expected to pay Hie alimony set by the far-away court no one knows. Mrs. Howland is the daugh ter of Mrs. Heniy of Flushing, L. I., and was married to the Rev. Mr. Howland ten years ago. With tastes that led her to parties and all gayeties rather than church work, she steadily drifted away from her husband. Her temper brooked no opposition, much less control. In April, after a period during whioh she would neither Bit at the table with him nor come to his room, she left lum alto gether. He had refused to co-operate with her in her determination to secure a divorce, but when a Brooklyn lawyer came here and proposed a separation he agreed to an arrangement of that nature. Not satisfied with this.'she has now se cured a divoroe. •=,"* I sr All but the Governor. LINCOLN, Neb., Nov. 7.—The following statement is given out from the republi can headquarters at midnight: "The election of the entire republican state tioket with the exception of governor by pluralities of 1,600 to 6,000. Re turns from all but six oounties make fig ures on the governor as follows: Richards, republican, 67,608 Boyd, demoorat, 69,880 Powers, independent, 68,417. The independent headquarters olaim the election of Powers by a plural ity of 1,000, but ooncede the balanoe of din tioket to the republicans. The re maining oounties will add to Powers rel atively, but probabably hardly sufficient to overcome Boyd's plurality. A FALSE ALARM. Everything is Not so Democratic as the Press Reports at First Gave Oat. The Official Connt in Kansas Shows That the Entire Republican State Ticket Has Been Elected With the Single Exception of Kellogg for At torney General. The Count in Iowa ThuSj.Far Would Indicate the Election ot the Re publican State Ticket. Governor Merriam's Plurality in Minnesota is Now Reduced to About 1,000. Fargo Celebrates the Victory. FARGO, Nov. 7.—Johnson's majority for Congress is about 6,000 Burke's, for governor, 5,185. Benton says he will contest Johnson's seat, and has already commenced serving affidavits. There publicans celebrate their victory in this state to-night. M'INTOSH COUNTY. EUREKA, NOV. 7.—[Special.]—Returns from Mcintosh county are as follows: Johnson 393, Benton 116, Burke 375, Roach 104, Muir 30 about 385 rest of state ticket for the republicans and 110 for the democrats. Senate, Worst, re publican, 414, Simpson, democrat, 94 house, Fay, republican, 389, Fiske, 357, Dwyer, demoorat, 140, Briggs, 117. The votes average on county ticket, republi can 395, demcratic 114. Kansas Still Republican. KANSAS CITY, Kas., Nov. 7.—The offi cial canvass of the votes oast at the late election in Kansas is being made to night at Topeka and has progressed far enough to show that the entire republi can state ticket has been elected with the exception of Kellogg, who is defeated for re-election as attorney general by Ives, the Farmers' Alliance candidate. The republican majority is placed at about 10,000. The vote on congressman is not changed by the official count. The Kan sas delegation will stand two republicans and five Farmers' Alliance men. The legislature is still believed to be Farm ers' Alliance. And Iowa, Too. DES MOINES, la., Nov. 7.—Returns re ceived from ninety counties give MoFar land 173,199, and Chamberlain a net gain of 179,613. McFarland's plurality is 2,686. It is. estimated the other nine counties will increase McFarland's plurality to 10,500 3,900, over last year. This apparently insures the election of the entire republican state ticket by about 4,000 plurality. Republican Congratulation*. COLUMBUS, O., NOV. 7.—The republi can state committee to-night issues an address to the republicans of the state, congratulating them upon the viotory of Tuesday in spite of the exertions of Chairman Brice of the national demo cratic committee and his presence in the state preceding the election. The com mittee says the result is an endorsement of the McKinley bill and the administra tion of President Harrison and is a de cision in favor of American as against foreign interests. The democratic com mittee points to what they consider a substantial victory in the state, consid ering the circumstances and disadvanta ges of an extra legislative session, and the chairman says the McKinley bill was the leading issue. Like the republicans, the democratic committee recognizes the efficient services of Chairman Briee, es pecially in close congressional dismaCv and the state. His attitude was that off advisor and worker, rather than dictator, the term which they apply to the repub lican national chairman. ILLINOIS STATE TICKET. It Is Now Beyond Doubt That the Entire Democratic State Tioket Has Won CHICAGO, NOV. 7.—At last the returna from the state of Illinois have become sufficiently complete to announce de cisively the result on the state ticket The democrats have won and Edwin S. Wilson of Olney is elected state treasur er by 11,436, and Henry Raab, of Belle ville, superintendent of publio instruc tion by 36,144. No compilations have been made yet on the trusteeship of the University of Illinois, but the indications are that three democratic nominees have also been elected by a slight majority. The exact vote will not be ascertained. until the returns have been canvassed and sent to the secretary of state at Springfield. But the ootaplete returns leave no doubt that the result is as here in stated, and that the entire democratic state tioket is effected. Returna received BO far are official from all oounties in the state except eight.
