Most of the republican state officials, who are candidates for re-election, received re turns at the Severin. As the returns came from Indianapolis, indicating a sweep toward the republicans beyond anything the most sanguine party workers had predicted, a smile of satis faction spread over the fa':es of the men assembled there. SHOW TREND TOWARD O. O. P, Returns from scattering precincts in the state gave evidence toward the re publicans and early in the night, on the basis of figures from precincts in wide ly scattered portions of the state, the prediction that the state ticket would be carried by 4 0.000 to 50.000 was offered. 3.E00.
