The election has come and gone, and
the "I told you so," men are quite busy
in telling how the result came about.
With the opposition operating against the
republican ticket; with the democratic
combination with the farmeis' ticket;
with the relishing influences of cold din
ners, the republicans have ciuse to lift

REPUBLICAN GAINS IN MARYLAND.
Baltimore, Nov. 6. Maryland went

gence received at the state democratic

and that the democrats will have oyer

over two-thirds majority in the senate.
A POSSIBLE CHANCE FOIt HUTCHINSON.
Des Moines, la., Nov. G The Register
says: Six hundred and eighty precincts
representing almost one-half the vote of
the state, give Hutchinson 78.223, and
Boies 7o,s58, a net republican loss of 8,
774. The average ratio of republican loss
this morning on the 70 precincts com
pared is three and four-tenths per cent
as against seven per cent last night, in
dicating a slight chance for the election
of Hutchinson and a good chance for the
election of the rest of the republican

DEMOCRATS IX NEW YORK.
New York, Nov. "6. A 10.30 edition
of the World says that the democratic
victory is sweeping in the light of to
day's returns. It says the democrats have
not only carried this state bv from 30.
000 to 2o.000, but have gained ten mem
bers of the legislature.
CROW OVER THE SUCCESS.
"Unmerciful scratching on both, sides
caused the return to be late in coming
can but smile at the scheme laid by the
democrats to elect their candidate for
sheriff. J. N. Fike went to Summers
township and Thomas MeCue to Rovohl.
These are the two best workers in the
party and it was claimed by the demo
crats that T. P. Feehan would surely
carry Morgan township and then with
Rovohl and Summers, he would un
doubtedly be elected. Summers and Ro
vohl were delivered by Fike and McCue
alright but in Morgan, Feehan votes fail
ed to show up.
A glance at the above table will give
the true statis of the election so far as
majorities and pluralities are concerned.

SPOKANE FALLS NEW LINE.
The Union Pacific Railway, having complet
ed its line to Spokane Falls. Washinjrton terri
tory, is running its trains direct to that point,
thu3 forming the most desirable route f ro'm

sleeping cars, Pullman dining cars, and free
Pullman colonist slcegers.
Spokane Falls is situated in the Palouse
country and is thedistributing centre for av

000 bushels of wheat have been raided from
1,000 acres of land. Another feature of the

remarkably productive region on reasonable
terms, and a more favorable opportunity for
