Chairman Aikens continued: "If th»
remaining counties in the State show
similar gains, and Gt. Louis. St. Joseph
and Kansas City roll up their Uimal Re
publican majorities, I see no reason why
our State and national tickets should not
be successful. I know that the senti
ment in the State is ample to elect the
entire Republican State and national
tickets in Missouri."
Thomas G. Aikins. chairman of the
Republican State Committee, stated that
the county . chairmen of Butler, Noaway,
Green and Lawrence counties- had re
ceived enough returns to indicate that
McKinley and Flory, Republican candi
date for Governor, had carried them.
These counties, he said, showed Repub
lican gains over the vote cast in 1S96 of
from 400 to 1000.
j ST. LOUIS, Nov. 6.— Up to midnight the
returns from the State and city were very
meager, owing to the operation of the
new and untried Nesbitt election law, the
unusually heavy vote and the fact that
the counting of seven constitutional
amendments had been done first. Noth
ing definite as to the result of the vote
on State or national rickets could be had
at that time. It was known, however,
that the , following Democratic Congress
men, were ~ re-elected: ,W. S. Cowherd.

NEW HAVEN. Conn.. Nov. 7.— The plu
rality for McKinley Is about 23,000. The
surprise of the flay was occasioned by the
fact that the Republican State ticket fol
lowed closely the figures of the Presiden
tial contest and.w-as elected by pluralities
of over 21,000. The Republican Congress
men were elected by majorities ranging
from 10,000 in the First District to a nar

this cannot be said positively.
Milton Smith, chairman of the Demo

night made the following statement: "I
am satisfied that Brvan has carried this
State by from 40,000 to 60,000, and the fu
sion State ticket will not run 5000 votes
behind him. The Republicans have not
elected more than 12 of 65 members of the
Legislature. Congressman Shafroth has
a majority of 12,000 and Bell in the Sec

LOUISVILLE, Nov. 7.— Returns up to
1:30 a. m. continue to show Democratic
gains,- though both sides stiH~cIaim the
election. In 964 out of a total of 1884 pre
cincts in the State, including Louisville,
the reports show: Bryan 22.569, McKinley
13.9S1; Bryan's majority S5S3. Beckham
The Courier-Journal at midnight says
returns from two-thirds of the counties
in the State show Bryan and Beckham

size of the majority in the Eleventh Con

"Official returns from twenty-eight coun
ties have been received. In these counties
Beckham for Governor has gained 1039
over Goebel last' year, while Yerkes has
gained 1302 over Taylor in the same coun
ties last year. Jefferson County (Louis
ville) is not included In this estimate. This
indicates that Yerkes has been elected by
a safe majority. In the Presidential race
McKinley has probably run 1200 behind
Yerkes in the same counties."
"Bryan and Beckham have carried Ken
tucky by safe majorities. The Democrats
have elected nine out of the eleven Con
gressmen, including Gilbert In the Eighth,
Kehoe in the Ninth and Rhea In the Third
Chairman Combs of the Republican
State Committee said:
LOUISVILLE. Nov. 6.— At 10 o'clock
both Democratic and Republican commit
tees claim the State, though they furni=h
no figures in support of their claims. The
Louisville newspapers claim that Bryan
and Beckham .or McKinley and Yerkes
have gained the victory in this State, Just
according to whether these papers sup
ported the Democratic or Republican
tickets in the campaign. McKlnley's ma
jority in 180 out of 200 precincts In Louis
ville and the county is 4059. In the same
precincts the majority of Yerkes. Repub
lican candidate for Oovernor over Beck
ham, Democrat, is 4498. The Democrats
are claiming gains In the State.
LOUISVILLE. Nov. 6.— At midnight the
result of the election in Kentucky was in
doubt, with both sides claiming the State
and Presidential tickets. The Democrats
may be considered to have a trifle the bet
ter of the argument. Ex-Governor- Mc-
Creery, chairman of the Democratic State
Campaign Committee, said:
KANSASvCITY. Nov. 7.-At 1 a. m.
Chairman Albaugh of the Kansas Repub
lican Committee claims the State for Mc-
Kinley by 30.TJO0 plurality and for Stan
ley by 25,000. He claims the election of
the entire Republican Congressional dele
gation and that the Legislature on joint
ballot will be Republican.
DES MOINES. Nov. 7.— It is apparent
that Iowa is Republican by 100.000 and
that a solid delegation of eleven Repub
licans will be sent to Washington. Five
hundred and twenty-three out of 2137 pre
cincts in the State have been heard from
These give McKinley 299,707 and Bryan
203,842. a net Republican gain of 20 to a
precinct, if this ratio is maintained Mc-
Kinley's plurality will be 104.000. the larg
est on record in the State. The entire Re

largest plurality ever had in Iowa.

DETROIT, Nov. 6.-Presldent McKinley

The Evening Newts bays that if MoKin
ley's ratio of majority in the 110 districts
heard from is maintained throughout the
State his majority will be 90,000. The Re
publican State ticket also haft been elected
by a smaller majority.
At 10 p. m. it is (nought the Republicans

nominees. . . ...
President McKinley has carried the
the. State by. about 80,000. a reduction of
nearly a hundred thousand from that of
four years ago. The Republicans have
elected ten Congressmen. While the total
vote for Governor was behind that given
the national candidate. W. M. Crane was
re-elected by a larger plurality than that
received by President McKinley. The Re
publican vote showed a net loss of about
15 per cent.
BOSTON. Nov. 7.— The plurality in this
city of 8466 for Bryan, with one precinct
to be heard | from, came as the surprise
of the election in Massachusetts. Bryan
polled throughout the city 44,813 votes—
that is, 14.999 more votes than he received
four years ago. This is a gain of about
50 per cent for the Democratic Presiden
tial candidate. McKinley's support was
36,347, which was a loss of 24 per cent over
1S96. Bryan ran very, strongly in Repub
lican wards and seemed to lose in several
Democratic wards.
McKinley carried Baltimore city by 6995.
The returns -from the counties are mea
ger, but official advices from eighty-one
scattered precincts out of 354 give Mc-
Kinley 18,285, Bryan 16,19"). assuring Mc-
Kinley a majority of at least 10.000 in the
State. The defeat of the Democrats has
been thorough and surprising, it being
thought certain that they have lost five
of the six Congressmen, with the proba
bilities In favor of a clean sweep by the
loss of the other. The doubtful district is
the Second, in which Congressman J. F.
C* T.ilbot Is the Democratic candidate and
A. Blankeney the Republican aspirant.
The returns, with one precinct missing,
show a majority for Blankeney. and it is
regarded as. probable that he is elected.
This means a net loss of two Congressmen
to the Democrats, the Fourth and First
districts having been represented by Dem
ocrats, though Governor John W. Smith,
who was elected in the First, resigned
soon afterward to become Governor of
the State. His business partner. State
Senator. John P. Moore, was nominated
by the Democrats to succeed him, and
his defeat was a source of great surprise,
It being considered that he was practical
ly sure of election.
BALTIMORE. Nov. 6.— McKinley has
carried Maryland, beyond the shadow of
a doubt, the only question to be settled
being the size of his majority. With prac
tically complete returns from the city he
has a majority here of about 6500, while
from the State scattering returns indicate
an additional surplus of 3500, making his
toial majority in the State about 10,000.
There is no reason to believe the final
figures will vary greatly from those given
above. Chairman Vandiver of the Demo
cratic State Committee admits Bryan's
defeat in the State, while Chairman Golds
borough of the Republican Committee
says that McKlnley's majority will reach
14,000 at least. It is also certain that the
Republicans have elected four of the six
Congressmen, while the remaining two
will probably be Democratic, although
later returns may change this outlook.
Out of seventeen counties in the Elev
enth District, the Republican Gibraltar,
eight counties have been heard from, each
giving McKinley and Yerkes an average
majority* of 1000. The Republicans claim
20,000 majority on both State and national
tickets. , . _ ¦ , ¦ .

total vote in the city of New York is ap
proximately ,60,000 larger than it was in
1896, and up the State the increase is
about 30,000. In the city Bryan wipes out
the' plurality of 60.000 which McKinley

national ticket will no doubt' also deter

both running very close together.
