But the Democrats Suffered a Waterloo Every where Else. RETURNS ARE COMING IN SLCWLY Gorman, Hill. Brice anil Campbell Are Knocked Out—Amos J. Cummings’ Pop ularity Pulled Him Through—Repub licans Have Made Big Gains. New York, Nov. 5.—The Wpubllrans carried New York state by 80,0000 majori ty, New Jersey by over 15,000, Maryland by 10,000 and claim to have captured Kentucky. Besides swinging the states over Into the republican column, they increased their annual majorities in Mas sachusetts, Ohio, Iowa and all other states where election were held. It was a democratic Waterloo. Tammany elected her local ticket by about 30,000 and New York city went democratic for secretary of state by 41, 000, but the republicans came down to the bridge with over 100,000 votes to spare. In the Tenth congressional dis trict Amos J. Cummings, democrat, was elected, but his success was plainly due to his personal popularity. Of the fifty senators in this state the democrats elected only sixteen, and of the 150 as semblymen only forty-six. The senate elected today will have part in the selection of a successor to David B. Hill, and it is plain that he will not be a democrat. The republican gains were generally all over the state. In this city and Brooklyn republican senators and assemblymen were elected where demo crats have been returned year after year. In Brooklyn a democratic mayor pulled through by a narrow plurality. In Al bany, Buffalo and other cities big re publican gains were made.

Baltimore, Nov. 6.—The vote in Balti more was the heaviest for years, and as scratching was largely indulged in the count will be slow. Four election districts In the city give Lowndes, republican, for governor 780 and Hurst, democrat, 612, a net republi can gain of 101. The Baltimore Sun says indications from scattering precincts are that Lowndes, republican for governor, and Hooper, republican for mayor, carry the city. The American claims the election of Lowndes for governor and the entire re publican ticket by 10,000 in the city and 10,000 in the state, making 20,000. Baltimore.

Senator Gorman resides in How ard county. There were big republican gains in Anne Arendul county. Eaton also shows heavy republican gains. In Baltimore city the republicans carried the eighth precinct of the Tenth ward for the first time in twenty years. KENTUCKY, Louisville, Ky., Nov. 6.—The election Is passing off quietly throughout the state today, but aa it Is by secret ballot, it Is impossible to get anything definite. An unusually heavy vote is being polled and both republicans and democrats are claiming a victory. At Versailles, a party of negroes from Frankfort, who were sent here this morn ing to work fbr Hardin, Were driven out of the town by a mob of republican ne groes At Frankfort there was much scratch ing of the municipal ticket and a large vote was polled. At Lexington a heavy vote was polled early in the day for members of the board of education. The voting was slow. The colored women voted the democratic ticket. The women officers of the elec tion were nearly all late in opening the booths. Lexington, Nov. 6.—The republican chairman says Louisvile and Jefferson counties will give Bradley, republican, 10,000 majority. Rowell county, usually democratic, gives republican Harrison and Fayette counties, democratic, show light republican gains.

At midnight Chairman Norman of the democratic state committee lowers his estimate on Hardin’s plurality, but still claims his election by a safe plurality. Returns from about half the precincts in Louisville indicate that the city will give a republican plurality of about 4000 on the municipal ticket and probably a larger plurality for Bradley. OHIO. Cincinnati, Nov. 6.—Twenty-seven pre cincts outside of Cincinnati give Bush nell, republican, 3304; Campbell, demo crat, 2927. Same In 1892. McKinley, re publican, 3187; Neal, democrat, 2858. Columbus. No •. 5.—Though the returns from Ohio are meager at htls hour, 8;30 p. m., only 130 precincts being reported, it ts evident that the republicans have carried Ohio by a plurality equalling that of McKinley two years ago. That was slightly over 80,000. These precincts show a net republican gain of one vote per precinct over that vote. As there are 2952 precincts In the state these fig ures Indicate that BushnelTs, republi can, plurality will be about 83,000. Though no reports are received yet as to the legislature, It Is altogether likely that the republicans will have a larger majority on Joint ballot than they have In the present one. Cincinnati, Nov. 5.—The Blaine club estimates BiishneH’s majority in Hamil ton county at 12,000. One hundred and twenty-seven pre cincts outside of Cincinnati give Bush nell, republican. 17,983; Campbell, demo crat, 14,758. Same In 1893 gave McKin ley 17,649; Neal. 14,795. Cincinnati, Nov. 5.—One hundred and ninety-three precincts otitslde Cincinnati Bushnell, 26.314; Campbell, 20,572. Same In 1893; McKinley. 25,801; Neal, 17,227. Five hundred and fifteen precincts out side of Cincinnati; Bushnell, republican, 81,644; Campbell, democrat, 58,484; Ellis, 2,213; Coxey, 6.308; Watkins, 303. Same In 1S93 gave McKinley 80,833; Neal, 61,183. Columbus, O., Nov. 6.—As later and more reliable returns come In from Ohio the plurality given the state republican ticket seems to increase. At this hour, 10 p. m., Governor McKinley says the plurality for General Bushn -11, republi can candidate for governor, will reach 100,000. He has sent a telegram to Gen eral Bushnell congratulating him upqa his magnificent election as governor of Ohio. General Anderson, chairman of the democratic state executive committee, at this hour admits that the face of the re turns so far received, indicate a plurality of at least 40,000 for Bushnell. He hopes that later returns will be more favorable. It is almost certain that the republi cans will have a large majority on joint ballot in the general assembly. IOWA. Des Moines, Nov. 6.—Reports from va rious parts of the state indicate a very large vote. The polls closed at 6 p. m. and at 7 p. m. but few returns were re ceived. The democrats claim a victory and believe that Babb will be elected. Des Moines, Nov. 5.—The republican state committee claim the senate will be forty-two republicans and seven demo crats. The house will be seventy-four re publicans and twenty-three democrats. On Joint ballot, republicans, 117; demo crats, 33; republican majority, 84. Iowa returns come In slowly, as the polls generally remain open till 8 o'clock. Reports from the state indicate a gener ally light vote. Scattering reports, how ever, show that through the state the re publicans have gained and the democrats lost despite the falling off in the total vote. The populists will, from Indica tions now at hand, double their vote of 35,000 a year ago. Bast year the heud of [ the republican ticket carried the state by) 79,000. These figures will about be equaled by Drake, republican, for govern or. The republican state committee claim 75,000 as the lowest plurality. Ac curate estimates are impossible now. Two hundred and five precincts In Iowa give Drake, republican, 34,305; Babb, democrat, 10,743, a net republican gain of 3595. The republican state committee state that if the present ratio of gains contin ue Drake has 75,000 to 80.000 plurality. Twenty precincts In Iowa give Drake 2016 and Babb 1324. In 1893 these pre cincts gave the republicans 1956 and the democrats 1726, a net republican gain of Thirty-five precincts in Iowa give Drake, republican, 6335; Babb, democrat, 2500. This is a net republican gain of 887 over 1893. PENNSYLVANIA. Philadelphia, Nov. 6.—Pennsylvania has elected Haywood, republican, for state treasurer by a majority approxi mating 175,000, against 135,146 majority In 1S93 for Jackson, republican, state treasurer. The six republican candidates for superior Judges are elected by major ities slightly below that for Haywood. The choice for the minority party's rep resentation on the superior court bench is, from Indications at this writing, either Herman Yerkes of Buck county or Pe ter P. Smith of Lackawanna county. Philadelphia gives Haywood about 70,000 majority, with Yerkes leading the demo cratic candidates for superior Judge. Philadelphia Nov. 5, 11 p. m.—But few returns have been received at this hour. Still enough Is known to show that the entire republican ticket has been elected. Both parties were excedingly apathetic during the campaign and the result was apparent In the light vote cast on both sides. The republicans elect a Judge of the court of common pleas, district at torney, recorder of deeds, city comptroll er, coroner and clerk of the court of quar ter sessions. On the state ticket the re turns indicate that Philadelphia will give ever 65,000 majority for Haywood, repub lican, for state treasurer. Smith and Yerkes, democratic candidates for supe rior Judges are running ahead of their ticket in every ward in which the count has been completed. KANSAS. ~ Topeka,'Nov. 6.—There was a light vote polled today. Little Interest was taken in the contest for chief Justice. David Mar tin. republican, was generally considered a sure winner, but the returns from the few precincts heard from Indicate that the vote for Charles K. Holliday, inde pendent free silver, will be much larger than was anticipated, the populists gen erally voting for him. Martin's majority may be reduced to 2000. In this county Holliday will cut down the usual republican majority by more than 20.000. but he does not expect to -do as well elsewhere. Out of eight district judges the republicans'wijl elect five and the populists and democrats three, being a loss of two to the republi cans. Returns are coming in slowly. MICHIGAN. Detroit, Mich., Nov. 5.—The city elec tions here today passed off quietly. The weather was perfect, but a light vote was polled. H. S. Prlngree, the republican nominee for mayor, carried the city by 8000 majority, over Samuel Goldwater, democrat. The entire republican ticket is elected. A majority of sixteen aider men are republican. ILLINOIS. ^ Chicago, Nov. 5.—Four hundred pre cincts for judge give Ball, republican, 32,303; Morrison, democrat, 22,255. St. Louis, Mo., Nov. 5.—Returns from the Eighteenth Illinois Congressional dis trict Indicate the election of Ex-State Senator Handley, republican, to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Edward Remann last summer. Mr. Handley's op ponent, Ex-Congressman Edward Lane, failed to carry any of the six counties In the district. The contest attracted a great deal of attention by reason of the fact that the free silver, represented by Mr. Lane, was pitted against sound money. St. Louis, Nov. 5.—A special to the Chronicle shows light gains for Harley, republican, for congress In the Eigh teenth Illinois district over Lane, demo crat. The district is close. COLORADO. Denver, Col., Nov. 5.—The elections In Colorado were for county offices. A light vote was cast in many counties, due to a snow storm, lasting most of the day. In the three leading counties, Ara pahoe, El Paso and Puehlo, the republi can party seems to be defeated. In Den ver the interest in the election was in tense and the fusion ticket will probably win. Armstrong for sheriff is certainly elected over Webb, the republican candi date. The women voted about as gener ally as the men. NEBRASKA. Omaha, Nov. 6.—Nebraska votes today for one justice of the supreme court and two regents of the state university. The fight in Omaha is between a combina tion of dissatisfied republicans and the American Protective association ticket. Omaha, Neb., Nov. 5.—Nearly complete returns indicate that the republican city and county tickets have been elected by about 1000 plurality. Mississippi. Jackson, Miss., Nov. B.—The election is a very tame affair, there being no excite ment and very little Interest manifested in this city, where the city wears a Sun day aspect. The weather is May-like and fine, so that the probability is a full vote will be polled everywhere. If it is the democratic majority In the state will not fall far short of 50,000. No disturbs ances are reported anywhere. Jackson, Miss., Nov. 5.—The indications are that the entire democratic state ticket is elected by from 30,000 to 40,000. -o Hardin Wins. Louisville, Nov. 5.—The exciting cam paign In Kentukcy was followed today by a quiet election. The polls closed at 4 o'clock, but the blanket Australian bal lot, with much scratching, makes the county returns slow. The democrats claim the election of P. Wat Hardin as governor by 20,000 or 25, 000 plurality. The republicans claim the election of Hradley by a small plurality, but give no estimates. The returns so fur as received from the state show that Hardin has run with his ticket and in a few counties ahead of it, and if this ratio continues his election is assured.

Dr. Hurst in the same direction. Their combined efforts had a salutary effect. The disturbances, however, called forth a protest against the slipshod methods of the police department, Hon. George L. Wellington, chairman of the republican state central committee, calling atten tion of Marshal Frey to the police derilec tion. Mr. Wellington in a letter to Mar shal Prey said: “If you do not perform your duty I will make it known to the people of this city and state and put you in the pillary of public opinion for having assisted the criminal element in preventing a fair elec lion.” Notwithstanding the stringent orders of Marshal Frey, most of the saloons of the city were wide open and a good deal of drunkenness characterized the day.
