UPHEAVAL In htNNMLVfihiM REFORMERS ELECT TH E STATE TREASURER AND PHILADEL- PHIA CITY TICKET. I Philadelphia, Nov. 9.The political revolution in this city and state was the greatest that has occurred in Pennsylvania in nearly a generation. There have been previous upheavals, but this is the first time in years that every office for which there was any semblance of a contest has been lost to the regular Republicans. It is also the first time in a quarter of a century that the regular Republicans have been defeated tor control of the state treasury. The plurality of William H: Berry, who was nominated by the Demo cratic, Independent party, Lincoln party and Prohibitionists for state treasurer, will be nearly 100,000 and luay go above those figures. J. Lee Plummet, the Republican candidate, ran far behind his ticket in nearly svery county in the state. The re mainder ot the Republican ticket was elected by the usual Republican plural ities. President Roosevelt's plurality last ear was more than half a million. The victory ot the City party, the felorm organization, o\er the regular Republicans in Philadelphia was com plete an beyond the expectations of the retoini leaders. The Cu\ party's plurality is 4[},'\Z3. The reiorm wave earned Berry along with it he defeat ing Plummer the cin by '.o,tH pluiality Rc-^'b'iccns Car'y l-idiar.srjolis.

Full returns from every elec tion district give McClellan a plurality ot 3,4SJ, hut this is so smallonly a little more than on halt of one per cent ot the vote castthat a recount and TPinspection ot the ballots might easily sweep it away and sho*w Hearst the winner. Indignant at what he be lieved to be suspicious holding back of returns and roused to passionate resentment by stones of violence and outrage at the polls told at his head quarters by scores ot his followers Mr. Hearst refused to admit defeat an declared that he would see that every man that voted for him got a tair count of his vote In his demand for a re count Mr Hearst is supported by Dis trict Attorney William T. Jerome, him selt \i in his 'single-handed fight against the great Tammany ma chine Bird ii.

JEROME CHOSEN DISTRICT ATTORNEY CANDIDATE SOLELY ON HIS FORMER RECORD. REFORMERS WININ PENNSYLVANIA ELEdT STATE TREASURER AND ENTIRE CITY TICKET OF PHILADELPHIA. New York, Nov. 9.The city of New York, complete but unofficial, gives McClellan 3,485 plurality over Hearst. The total vote was McClellan 22S.651, Hearst 225,106, Ivins 137,049. District Attorney Jerome, Independent, was re elected by a plurality of over 11,000. William R. Hearst, Municipal Own ership candidate for mayor, charges Tammany Hall with fraud and will contest the election. Mr. Hearst in making his contest may demand that ^ach ot the i,48U ballot boxes used in the election be biought betore the board ol aldermen and a count of the ballots made by that body. Then if dissatisfied Mr. Hearst may throw the whole matter into the courts for de tision and it that is done the battle irohauly will be a long and intricate one.' iu addition to the procedure be tore the aldermen and the regular con- I test in the courts Mr. Hearst may, of i course, bung to the attention of the I authonties each individual case oi iraujd or 'violence that may be dis- i covered. Although McClellan on the face ot the complete, but unofficial re turns, was elected by a plurality of I 2,483, the Democrats lost heavily in the contest. The election of William T. Jerome, Independent, as district at- I torney is a severe blow to the Tarn many organization, which exerted all the toice at its command" to defeat him. His victory is remarkable when it is considered that he was the can didate of no party and made his ap peal lor \otes solely on his record in ofuce lor the last four years and that every man who voted for him voted a split ticket The board of aldermen, too, is lost to Tammany, they having but 25 members of the board, against 38 Republicans aad 9 Municipal Own ership members.
