Philadelphia, Nov. 5.—An unusually large vote was polled here. At many places long lines of citizens were to bo seen lie tween 8 and 10 o'clock patiently waiting their turn for depositing their tickets. It was said by many veteran politicians—the men who are al wuys to be found at the polls work ing for the candi dates of their re spective parties— i there hod never before been ob- J served as much careful scrutiny of ballots. The local Republicans wore chiefly concerned GM («bout Delamater, their nominee for " governor, and Thompson for comptroller.

PATTISON. come to Philadelphia with not less than 30,000 majority. Complete returns give the Republicans 21,276 majority in Phila delphia. Returns from different sections of the state show large Democratic gains. The Republican ticket is probably elected by a reduced majority. Thirty-five counties, including Allegheny and not including Philadelphia, give Pattison, Dem., a net plurality of 7,775. Twenty-four counties, including Allegheny, but not including Philadelphia, give Pattison, Dem., for governor a net plurality of 7,165. These twenty-four counties in 1886 gave Beaver, Rep., a net plurality of 12.570, showing a net Democratic gain of 19,735. Pittsburg—In Allegheny and Pittsburg an extremely heavy vote was polled. There is but little donbt that Pattison, Demo cratic candidate for governor, will receive « majority over Delamater, Rep., in Pitts burg. Delamater has a majority in Alle gheny City. A private dispatoh from Sen ator Quay ts reported to contain the fol lowing: "Delnraater will carry the state by 15,000 majority. His majority ia Alle gheny county will reach or exceed 3,900."

Burns, Dent., is elected in the Third district; Buchanan, Rep., is re-elected to congress by a reduce«! majority. Mnj. An dei-sou, state comptroller, figures that the Republicans have elected senators in Cam den, Salem, Gloucester, Somerset uud Union counties, which insures a Repub lican majority. The Democrats win in Hudson and Warren, but Essex is in doubt, fie says Republicans have gained an assemblyman in Hunterdon. There are several doubtful places to bear from. The political complexion of the assembly cannot now be given. The next congres sional delegation will consist of four Dem ocrats and three Republicans. Newark—Cadman, Dem., is elected for congress in William Walter Phelps' dis trict. His majority will reach 300, a Demo cratic gain of 130 over Cleveland in 1888. Elizabeth—Stephen R. Mullen, of Som set, Republican candidate for assembly In the Second district of Union county, was arrested on a charge of attempting to bribe voters. Mullen was released on $500 bail. Asbury Park—The indications are that Anron T. Johnson, Charles H. Ivins and William D. Campbell, Democrats, - are elected to the assembly by a majority of from 500 to 800. Thomas S. R. Brown, Dem., will have about 1,000 majority for the senatorship. Jacob A. Geiseuheimer, Dem., will have about 1,000 majority for congress. Keyport— Tho election was the quietest in years, the vote being light. The new voting system worked well. At this hour the indications are that Geiseuheimer, Dem., for congress and Brown, Dem., for state senator are elected. The Republicans concede nil three assembly districts to the Democrats. It is believed that Johu T. W'right, Dem., has been elected county clerk by 400 majority. United States Sen ator Blodgett says the whole Democratic ticket is elected. The Democrats claim 37 of the 00 mem bers of the assembly. E. A. McDonald, Democratic candidate for congress from Hudson county, is elected. Secretary of State Kelsey says the Democrats will have a majority of one in the senate. He says they have elected senators in Union, Mon mouth, Essex, Somerset and Warren counties. Three Republican counties, Camden, Gloucester aud Salem are yet to be heard from. Samuel Fowler, Dem., has been re-elected to congress in the Fourth district. Thomas D. English, Dem., is beiieved to have a majority of 1,700 in the Sixth district. FROM SOUTH CAROLINA. Tillman Carries tbe State by 95,000 Ma jority. Charleston, S. C., Nov. 5.— Tillman, Farmers' Alliance and Democrat, is elect ed governor by not less than 25,000 major ity. The total vote in the state will not A » / ri v 0 V - B. R. TILLMAN. exceed 75,000. The election was quiet Neither whites nor blacks displayed any enthusiasm, aud thousands remained away from the polls, some because they could not support Tillman and would not vote for Haskell. The negroes, having no Republican ticket in the field, declined to choose between tbe two Democratic nomi nees. The vote in Charleston was only 1,500 out of u registration of 10,000—the lightest vote ever polled here. Returns from congressional districts are still in complete, but assure the election of Braw iey, Dem., First district; Tillman, Dem., Second district; Johnstone, Dem., Third district; Shell, Alliance- Dem., Fourth dis trict; Hemphill, Dem., Fifth district; Stackhouse, Alliance- Dem., Sixth district. The result in the legislature will be over whelmingly Democratic. This body will choose a successor to United States Senator Wade Hampten, and it ia feared that he will not be re-elected, though the Tillman ites have not united on a candidate so far as known. AH the Democratic state officers and candidates for congress are elected with the possible exception of congressman for the Seventh district. From WUronsIn. Milwaukee, Wis., Nov. 5.—A large vote was polled in this state, and owing to the Initial use of the new election law the re turns come in very slowly. As an evi dence of the large Democratic gains, 100 precincts in Ml Wisconsin, inclnd- ÄK4 f ing fifty-five pre- wj . cruets in this city, show a net Demo cratic increase of 6.280. John L. Mitchell, Dem., ^ has a majority, it ; is estimated, of 5, 000 in the Fourth congressional dis trict, over Spencer, Rep. The district, was formerly Republican. George W. Peck, of "Peck's Had Boy" fame, is probably elect ed, but the state is vsry close and his ma jority over W. D. Hoard, Rep., will not be very large. The campaign this year has been of a most exciting character, on ac count of tbe fight of the Democrats and Catholics against tbe Bennett compulsory education law. The repeal or continuance of this law was the issue of the campaign. F ram Maryland. Baltimore, Nov. 5. —Cummings, colored, Rep., candidate for city council from the Eleventh ward, has been elected. This is the first colored man ever elected to office In Baltimore. Maryland sends an unbroken Democratic delegation to congress. McKaig defeats McComaa by about 300 and Compton wins over Mndd by 800. The other Democratic majorities are in the thousands, being a gain of two Democratic congressmen. vS\\j8 G. W. PECK. RUSSELL IS A WINNER. The Republicans Defeated in the Old Bay State. McKinley probably elected. Ill« District Is Close, but He Probably Pulled Through—Cannon I Undoubtedly Ke-electcd In Illinois—I.urge Democratic U »lus In New llampiliire. Boston'. Nov. 5.—Tho Bay state shows large Democratic gains. William K. Rus sell, Dorn., is elected governor by a plural ity of at least 5.030 over Gov ernor J . Q. A. Brackett, Rep., and 165 towns and cities, including Boston, Fall R i ve r, Taunton, Brockton, Haver hill and Newbury port, give Blank nier, Pro, 7,057; Brackett, Rep., j/ 65,133; Russell, Dem., 78,838. Same towns last year gave Black mer, 8,763; Brackett, 65,683; Russell, 03,01)0 —a net gain for Russell of 10,819. A heavy vote was polled. Rlissell carried Boston by over 13,000 majority against 5,000 at the last eh-ction. I 4 N 4r id W. K. BUSSELL. Brookline, the home of Congressman Candler, which was expected to give him a good majority, votes as follows: Brackett, 693; Russell, 878; Blackmer, 38. The Globe says that Hoar, Dom., is elected to con gress over Fox, Hep., in tho Fifth district; Williams, Dem., over Candler in the Ninth; Andrew, Dem,, over Fierce, Rep., .in tho Third; also O'Neil, Deni., in the Fourth, with the Eieveuth (list riot in doubt. Lodge, Rep., ia re-elected in the Sixth. The Democrats have gained two congressmen. The vote of Boston for governor, com plete, gives Russell, Dem. , 82,086; Brackett, Rep., 10,476; Blackmer, Pro., 1,464; Rus sell's plurality, 18,110. The vote last year waa: Russell, 38,308; Brackett, 23,754; Blackmer, 1,516; Russell's plurality, 5,454. Democratic gain, 4,778; Republican loss, 3,878; Democratic net gain, 7,450. The Democrats claim the state by 10,600 plural ity, and the Republicans' state committee concede Russell's election, although they will uot uame any figures. From Ohio. Columbus, O., Nov. 5.— Two private tel egrams have been received at the Repub lican headquarters, which, if true, insure the election of Maj. William McKiuley. One of the telegrams states that Wayne county gives Mc Kinley 900 major ity, which shows a change of 1,800 votes in his favor, j The other dispatch J states that in (our- f teen precincts of 1 Stark county, Mc- 1 Kinley's home, he made a gain of 846 votes. MeKin- —» ley's own ward&t. complete gives gain of 885. ThisO makes McKiuley'sM gain 810 ill four-™ teen of the sixty ty-four precincts in Stark county, which went 1,100 for Campbell last year. One precinct heard from in Medina county gives McKinley a gain of twenty-seven. Donovan, Dein., is elected over Brigham, Rep., in the Sixth congressional district, lu the Second congressional district Cald well, Rep., is elected over Brown, Dem. Returns give Orr, Rep., for congress, 384 majority. This district gave Cleveland 2,564, and Campbell 3,857 in 1889. Returns from nearly every section in the state indicate a Republican victory by ma jorities ranging from 12,000 to 20,000. The result is no surprise, however, os Ohio may be relied on to give a decisive Repub lican majority when there are no demoral izing agents at work In the party. Not only were the Republicans at peace with each other this year, but their opponents were afflicted with the worst case of apathy they have experienced for a long time. There was much more interest centered in the congressioual campaign than in the state contest. As will lie remembered, the Democratic legislature last winter so ger rymandered the state ns to be morally cer tain of electing a majority of the Ohio delegation in the national house from their party. Based upon the returns of last fall, tbe gerrymander showed that sixteen Democrats and five Republicans would be elected. The results of lost fall's election could not lie relied upon, however, as indicating the exact political status of the new districts, as there was a factional tight in the Republican party at that time. None who correctly understood the situa tion believed there would be a delegation of sixteen to five. It now looks as though the result would give the Democrats a Imre majority in the delegation. 'The fight in the Hixteentb dis trict between Maj. McKinley, tbe author of the new tariff law, aud ex-Lieutenant Governor Warwick, has attracted national interest. No other district in the United States has been watched more close than McKinley's. With a majority of nearly 3,000 in favor of Warwick, it has been gen erally held that McKinley's defeat was in evitable. But the majority of Governor Warwick, as claimed by the Democrats, has beéu slowly dropping down, until yes terday morning they ouiy claimed his elec tion by 000, Cleveland — The indications are that Johnson, Dem., for congress, in this dis trict, is elected. The Republican county ticket, except perhajis the candidate for sheriff, is elected. Tbe Democratic congressional committee of McKinley's district concede his re-elec tion by a small majority. The Democratic state executive committee admit that they are afraid it is true. % WILLIAM M'KINLEY. From Indiana. Indianapolis, Nov. 5.— President Har rison arrived yesterday, and was met at the depot by R. S. McKee and family. He was driven to their residence, and an hour later went to the polls to vote. A few minutes before his arrival a fing was stretched over the entrance to the looth, and the president bowed his bead when passing under it. He was in the polling room just three minutes. As he dej oslted his ballot and bad his name nevrded, Judge Landers said, "It's plain Ben Har rison, now." "Yes, sir," said the president, ' and hie vote counts but one" The Republicans concede a Démocratie victory in this city and county. Advice» from other parts of the state a; Tee that the new election Vnw worked admirably. The chairman of the Democratic com mittee claim* a majority of not lea* than 7(1,000 on state ticket and eleven out of the thirteen members of congress. I'rmn Connecticut. Haut ford, Nov. 5.— Doth Republicans and Democrats claim the state. Dozon B, Morris thinks that lie will be elected by the people by a small majority. On the other hand Gen. 8. B. Mamin hopes to be elected by the legislature. The Democrats show gains ou all sides, and tho only doubt is in the fact whether or not Morris can he elected by the people. He show's gains in every voting precinct. Senatorial districts One, Four, Five, Six, Seven, Eight, Seven teen, Nineteen, Twenty-two and Twenty four are Democratic districts and Two, Three, Sixteen, Eighteen and Twenty-one are Republican. The other seven districts are still doubtful. One hundred and thirty six out of 188 towns give Merwln, Rep., 51,011; Morris, Dem., 52,844; Augur, Pro., 3, «7. The legislature is apparently Re publican on joint ballot by alsmt 26. Sperry, Dem., in the First, and Wilcox, Dem., in the Second district, are elected to congress. Russell, Rep., is elected in the Third, and the Fourth is still uncer tain. From Mlnneaotn. Minneapolis, Nov. 5.—The Republican state central committee claims the state by 8,000 to 10,000 plurality.

The returns thus far indicate the election of ,Cooper, Rep., for congress. The Democrats claim three congress men in First, Third ami Fourth districts and are tr W. U.

II., Nov. 5.— Tho Democratic state committee claims Amsden's election as goveruor by the people, and the elect ion of McKinney and Dauiels to oongresa; also a majority of tlie house with the senate in doubt. Senator Chandler, ex-Congresn man dilligan and Hou. F. C. Churchill, chairman of the Republican committee, assert that the election of governor by the people, that the result in the First congres sional district Hnd the legislature are in doubt and that Moore, Hep., is probably re-elected to congress in the .Second dis trict.
