TWENTY-SIXTH YEAR. NO. 41.
GAGE'S GREAT MAJORITY Will Carry the State by Fully Twenty Thousand • SMALL SOLACE FOR THE DEMOCRATS Found in the Probable E'ection of Van Dyke and Conley for the Supreme Bench and Thompson for Secretary of State Associated Press Special Wire SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 9.—The latest returns received from every portion of the state confirm t he earlier reports of a sweep ing Republican victory. The plurality for Qage is not placed tit less than 20,000, and may exceed that figure. Jacob Naff, the Republican candidate for lieutenant -gov ernor, has everywhere run up with the head of the ticket, and in some counties has scored a good lead. Curry, for secretary of Htate, made a poor showing compared with the other nominees, and has probably been beaten by Thompson, his Democratic opponent. The contest for supreme court justices was very close, and the Democrats are now claiming the election of both of the Fusion nominees, Conley and Van Dyke. The Republicans, however, do not concede this, and assert that McFarland and Van Fleet have been chosen, although the ma jority for the latter will not be large. The complete count may be necessary to deter mine the result with certainty. The Republicans have elected ihe eon grsstnen in every district except ihe Sec ond, where De Vrics has been returned by a good majority. There is no doubt that the next legisla ture will be Republican, and that a Repub lican United States senator will he chosen. R. Porter Ashe, Democrat, has been elected to tho state .senate from this city,defeating Leon Dennery by twenty votes. The center of interest in the San Fran cisco municipal contest has been the tight for mayor. Charles L. Patton, the Repub lican nominee, although a novice in poli tics, made a good showing, but James D. Phelan, the present incumbent, has been re-elected by v substantial majority. As sessor Siebe will have to retire in favor of Or. Washington Dodge, whose majority will be huge. Judge Wallace has been beaten for supe rior judge, and Barclay Henley for district attorney. The hoard of supervisors, us well as about all the other city officials, will be Republicans.

The Republicans elect the auditor, tax collector, treasurer. They had no opposition. The figures for the equalizer are about the same as for governor. The five small precincts still to hear from will not change results. A Full Vote RIVERSIDK, Nov. 9.—The election is over, and there are a good many disap pointed people in this city and county. The result of the local fight was far from what was expected, and now the defeated candi dates are wondering just how it happened that they got left. The returns are not all iv from the country districts as yet, and some of them will not reach the city prob ably for a couple of days, but enough figures have been received to show that the Repub lican ticket hus a majority in the county ranging from 000 for Cage down to half that number for some of the lesser candidates mi the ticket. tJa;;e ran ahead of his ticket iomeWhat. J. L. Needham, for congress, received a majority of over 700, he even carrying precincts where the vote went for Maguire. A. 8. Milice, the Republican candidate for assemblyman, had a walk-over, for he defeated his opponent, Mr. Myers, about two to one. The county ticket as elected is as follows: A. ,s.

Lillie, Democrat, First district; Dr. Craven. Republican, Second district; A. T. Kimball, Democrat, Fourth district; John Shaver, Democrat, Fifth district. The vote in the case of the office of coroner is very close, and it may be that later returns will elect Mr. Dickson, the Republican nominee, but it is not probable that such will be the case. The vote throughout the county was heavy; in fact, fully 95 per cent of the registered vote was brought out. The fusion managers account for the victory of the Republican party largely on the ground that there has been a large registration of THE HERALD MAGUIRE'S PHILOSOPHICAL ACCEPTANCE The Right Has Been Defeated and the People Have Vindicated the Southern Pacific Gage Be Strong Enough to Resist? SAN FRANCICO, Nov. o.—(Special to The Herald.) Judge Maguire makes the following statement: 'I do not desite hastily to make m% any statement concerning the causes of our defeat, although, of course, I feel interested in knowing and in having the people know to what c £ cailse it is to be attributed. I accept the situation philosophically and come as near to disregarding my personal interest in the result as any eJU cX, man can. ?T *jL "The disappointment of my personal ambition to become chief executive of this great state is a matter of no public consequence whatever; , U e-L nor, indeed, would that honor be much greater than to have led more than one hundred thousand of my fellow-citizens in a glorious, though r'L unsuccessful, struggle for the eternal right. In this fight we had not one corrupt or corrupting influence sustaining us. We spurned and .JC /L opposed and fought them all, and, for my part, I would rather go down to defeat fighting such, interests and influences than to succeed by ca- if, tering to any one of them. T JL "I trust that Mr. Oage, as governor of California, will be strong enough to resist the demands and blandishments of the corporate mo- nopolies that were banded together in support of his party. If he does, he will deserve the encouragement and applause of all lovers of just •2k ice, and none will be more ready than Ito accord the meed of praise to which he will be entitled. I feel, however, that no man should be sub- t 2* <-Jj jected to such an ordeal. "** "As to the effect of the election upon the railroad question, there can be no possible doubt. The people have vindicated the contention X egjt of the Southern Pacific company that we have not represented the public sentiment of California during the past five years. That does not, however, alter the fact that we have been in the right and that even a majority vote of the people does not alter the relations of right and J, wrong." JAMES G. MAGUIRE.

As usual it was a complete surprise. No election Bince the county division fight has excited more in terest. i Two years ago McKinley carried the county by 227 majority against the united forces of fusion. This year found the Demo crats as well prepared for battle as ever, minus only money. They were well enough prepared in every other respect. The election was very quiet and orderly all over the county. The result is the Democrats have elected as a net result of the tidal wave the following offices: Sheriff, Theodore Lacy over Joe Nichols, the present incumbent ; J. C. Joplin, treasurer, over Walter Robin son; Captain S. H. Finley of Company L, surveyor, against Mr. Sherwood; Fred Rob inson of Orange, tax collector, against Mr. Jennings of Anaheim; D. C.

I PRICE FIVE CENTS BABCOCK IS SURE OF REPUBLICAN CONTROL OF THE HOUSE KERR EQUALLY CERTAIN » THAT VICTORY HAS BEEN WON BY DEMOCRATS RETURNS COMING SLOWLY But the Prospects Indicate That Re publican Boasting Is Premature and May Be Unwarranted Associated Press Special Wire WASHINGTON, Nov. 9.—Chairman Bab cock of the Republican congressional com mittee said this evening that the house of representatives of the Fifty-sixth congresa would be Republican without doubt. Throughout the day and evening a of political statisticians have been at work in the Republican headquarters compiling the returns. In a statement to the Associated Preaa this evening Chairman Babcock said: "There can no longer be a reasonable doubt over the political complexion of tha next house of representatives. It will bo Republican, beyond the shadow of a doubt. Our advices show the certain election of 186° Republicans, six more than enough to give us control. These the straight Rcpublicana and our majority will be over the combined) opposition. Our information induces us to place nine districts in doubt. These are tha Seventh in California, the Third, Fourth, Fifth and Sixth in Nebraska, the Seven teenth, Nineteenth and Twenty-ninth in Pennsylvania and the Twelfth in Texas. Wa are reasonably certain to get some of them. Without them, however, we have a clean majority and are resting perfectly easy. "The Sixth lowa, which was in doubt for a time, has certainly elected Representative I.acey, Republican. In Kentucky we have elected not only Seitz in the Tenth, but Pugh in the Ninth. In Kansas we have a solid delegation, although it was not until this evening that we put Kirkpatrick of the Third district in the certain Republican col umn. In Maryland we concede the defeat of Jackson in the First district and Mc- Intyre in the Fourth; Minnesota returns a solid Republican delegation, Judge Morris having defeated Charles Towne in the Sixth district; in Massachusetts we concede the election of Democrats in the Third, Ninth and Tenth districts; according to our ad vices the delegation from New York will stand Id Republicans and 19 Democrats; In North Carolina we claim the election of White in the Second district and Linney in the Eighth, but we may be counted out in both of them. In Pennsylvania the delega tion stand 20 Republicans, 7 Democrats and I 3 doubtful. Texas stands 1 Republican, 11 Democrats, 1 doubtful, the Twelfth district, and in West Virginia we carried the First, Second and Fourth districts, while the op position carried the Third. "From our view point that is the situation as it is tonight. 1 fully believe that the re turns we shall receive tomorrow will in crease the figures I have made tonight." DEMOCRATS ALSO CONFIDENT At the headquarters of the Democratio congressional committee, confidence is ex pressed that the Democrats will control the next house of representatives. Secretary Kerr will not concede any of the claims made by Chairman Babcock of the Repub lican committee and says that in a large number of districts it will require the offi cial count to definitely determine the result. "It is certain," said Secretary Kerr to the Associated Dress, "that we have elected 183 members of the next house, the Republicans 103, and that 11 districts are doubtful. In New York we will have 21 members, in Pennsylvania 9 and peuhups 10; in Kansas •it least 4 and and perhaps 5. In Nebraska 4, in North Carolina 9 and in California 2 or 3. In formation is slow in coming in because the count in so many districts is very close. Our figures are based upon definite returns and I am satisfied that they are entirely ac curate."
