JDDGG FLEMING IS ELECTED
And the Desperate Schemes of
the Tricksters
WHO CONSPIRE TO DEFEAT HIM
And Deàat the Honest Will of the
People,
WILL BE TRIUMPH4HTLI FOILED.
The Only Danger to Democratic Victory is
Fraud, and It Cannot Prevail—Latest
Returns Elect Judge Fleming Be
yond a Shadow of Doubt.
Yesterday's news brought joy and glsd
neis to the Democratic hejrt. It ssttles
that Jadga Fleming bas been elected Gov
ernor, and takes away the remotest possi
bility of Democratic defeat For two days,
all has hung on the returns from Fayette^
McDowell aril Wjoming. Hope baa risen
and fallen as tumor after minor has been
pat ia circulation. The Bsc:ister has re
trained from publishing thsee unfounded
reports and quietly awaited nntil tome
infoi uiation could be obtained from author
itative sonne*. It has laA the work ol
Luanaiacturirg majorities to a contempo
ru-y more »xperienced in this pirticnlar
field of journalist:.' labor, and thns Gen.
GofFs majority has grown apace.
Tj-day official and semi otlicial returns
are at hand from these coun-ie», and Geo.
Gad's padded pluralities s.nk oat of Bight
nnier the wave of triomphant Democracy.
Fayette county give« a Republican majori*
ty of 7:»-.J instt-ai of 997. McDowell give«
57 iustead of 141, and Wyoming tills the
cup of Democratic joy by holding GofTs
boodlers down to :i> instead of 75, m the
Republican o».;an has claimed. This is a
net gain of 2W over the padded R-publi
can Agar* s Numerous other reports re
ceived yestsrday mate up a* mach more.
(iloriotis little Calhoun prove« equal to thd
emergency and comes up with 309 majority
for Flenr'ng bd1 honett government in
stead of 292, as it has been p-evioaaly esti-|
mated. Greenbrier's majority for Flem
ing is increased by the fall re'arns from<
693 to 729. Wirt county's cfficial report
gave F.eniog an increase! vote of 38 more,
making it 140 instead of 10*2, and thus
Jat'gj Fleming's majority looms ap into
the hundreds.
The table by which it was ever made to
appear that Geo. Goff had even a shadow
of plurality was full of inaccuracies and
willful m srepreeeatat lons. Nothing more
or less than dslifcerate falsehood repre
tented Jadge Fleming's majority in Bar
bcur a: 18 in-tjad of 3». Vhe same tac
tics will f'dlty misrepresented Democratic
œiij oritiee in evtry Democratic coanty.
I: was a part of the despicable scheme of
the Repoblican tricksters to steal the
State from Democratic ccutrol. They
hope by aodacioas claims to conceal the
weakness el their own case. Bat it will
not avail. Democracy has triumphed in
Wesl Vugitia. Tae ligures giv»n above
are reliable. They make oar victory
sure. Judjje Fleming has been elected
Governor by a majority that docs not ad
mit of donbt, and he will not be cheated
out of his victory.
Bat tie triomphant election of the
State ticket does not alone reprenant the
fallneee of Damocriatic victory. Toe re
turns now show Ju ige Jackson's election
ia the Foarth District by a close vote, bat
it will be sufficient to hold. Roane gives
him 177 majority, and with the othcial
counts and recoants complet«, Judge
Jackson has a plarality of foar. The fig
ures will not be changed, uuless by palpa
ble error or fraud.
Alders in is still ahead ia the Third,
though th* contest is close. Wilson has
353 majority ia the Second, and Pendle
ton's chances are brighter than ever in the
F.rst disti ict.
Tb« Législature u oar oy a majomy w
at least one on joiat ballot and poesibly
threa. The election of a Democrat;» U. S.
Senator is arsorcd, and a Democratic Leg
islature will see to it tbat no fraud lobs
Jadge Fleming or the State officials of
their ^ard-earned trinmpb.
Su«plclou* Taetlca.
There are some facta onnected with the
rise and fill of Kipublican mfjorities in
the Intelligencer, that that veracious sheet
has not made public. There ire no two
Republican politicians in the State more
noted in their peculiar fields of labor than
Hon. S. 0. Bi rdottk, of Charleston, and
Hon. James B. Mkxagik, of Pt. Pleas
ant. Both of the» gentlemen have been
in Wheeling rtcantly and were in close
coafeieaca with Chair m in Cowdks and
his colleagues.
The council of war held over some days.
At its conclusion Mr. BuBDrrrcwa* hast
ily dispatched on pressing business—that
business bang to look after the Third dis
trict returns. Since then the Intelligencer*t
columns have been loaded with false and
misleading dispatches, in every case in
creasing Gofk's majority over any previ
t ous information. Some of these dispatch««

HOUSE
Ii Democratic—Six Districts Undecided, With the
Democrats in the Lead by One—Three
West Virginia Districts Classed
as Doobthtl.
Washington, D. C., November 16.—
Geoer.il John R. Clark, Jr., the clerk of
the House of Representatives, believes that
160 Democratic Representatives have bean
elected and that six districts are in donbt.
Tais calculation is based upon the assump
tion tbat Wilson, Democrat, is elected in
West Virginia. The doobtfal dihtricts in |
General Clark's estimate are tie First Cal
ifornia, Tenth Kentucky, Second North I
Carolina, and the First, Third and Foorlh
of West Virginia. These districts he sets I
down as doubtfal because they are claimed
by both parties on majorities so small that
the ofiicial count matt be awaited to de- [
termine the result. In the case of Repre
dantative Bacon, Democrat, of New York,
who is reported to have been defeated by
eighty majority, General Clark exp-cte
that a contest will ensue.
Of one thing be is confident and that is
that the majority in the next House will
not be over iiveeitherway. Relative to the
functions of the clerk in the organization
of the new House and the power he is tap
poned to be able to exercise in seating or {
unseating members, Gen. Clark fays tbat j
his dut'e) are fixed by statute and are
purely miaisteria'. If a member-elect pre
sents a proper certificate of election his
name will be placed on the roll and not I
otherwise.
