He has carried New York by not less than 10,000, Indiana by 5,000 and the solid north, only excepting New Jersey, which is Demo cratic by 6,000 and Connecticut, which gives Cleveland a plurality of 385. HAURISON'S HOME MHS HAIUUSON. California and Nevada are regarded t sntoly Republican. West Virginia is uncertain, with tho chancer in favor of the Republicans. Missouri is also quite close, there being Republican congressional gains in the state, and also in Louisiana, Maryland and Ten-nes-sve. Delaware has elected a Republican legisla ture, and for tho first time in its history will have a Republican United States senator. The latest returns from various othor states are as follows: Virginia Claimed by the Republicans by' 4,000. Louisiana 30.000 Democratic. New Hampshire 3,000 Republicans. South Carolina Heavily Democratic. Pennsylvania 72,919 Republican. Nebraska 25.000 Republican. Missouri 30,000 Democratic. Michigan 20,000 Republican. Georgia 25,000 Democratic. Wisconsin 14,600 to 20,000 Republican. Montana 4,500 Republican. Kentucky 40,000 Democratic. Illinois 3i, 00J Republican. Chairman Brice, of the Democratic National Executive committee concedes the election of Gen. Harrison. Cnpt. McClollau, chairman of the campaign committee, was the only member of the National committee at headquarters in the morning and he made the authoritative announcement of Chair man Brlce's concession of Republican vic tory. How Grover Taken It. New York, Nov. 8. The Herald's Wash ington correspondent telegraphs an inter view he had with the president Weduesday afternoon. Iu reply to the question as to what cause be attributed the loss of New York state be said: "I answer frankly that I do not know, I am not indifferent to tho result. It is not a personal mutter. It is not proper to speak of it as my victory or my defeat. It was a contest between two great parties battling for the supremacy of certain well defined principles. One party bos won and the other has 1 st; that is all there is to it" 'Do you think, Mr. President," asked the correspondent, "that Governor Hill acted in fnmi fnir.h fiwnni vnn?' "I have not tho slightest doubt of Gov-1 omor Hill's absolute faith and honesty in the 1 canvass. Notbimr !uos ever occurred to in-' terrupt our kindly relations since wa ran on ' the ticket together as governor and lieuten ant governor." "I would like to inquire, M. President, how Mrs. Cleveland bears your defeat." "Oh, she feels about it just as I do. You know tbe defeat brings its compensations. Wo shall now have some time to ourselves, and can live moro as other folks do." "Shall you continue your residence at Oak View or return to Buffalo?" "I haven't given that subject a thought, nor shall I for tho present. There is no hurry about it. My future movemonts are as yoD wholly unsettled." Presidont Cleveland does not regret his stand 011 tho tariff question. Secretary Whitney says that President Cleveland's dofeat was not because of nuy trading or disloyalty on tho part of Hill. Neither was there inefficiency Jn the Demo cratic campaign committee. Mr. Whitney added that while tho man ngemont of the campaign had beeu masterly, the workingmen of New York had not had MEfP time to propeny understand the tariff ques tion, mid as tho Republicans hnd represented the Democratic party as pledged to absolute free trade, it was not surprising thnt thou sands of worklngmen had voted the Republi can ticket. Mrs. Cleveland, who had spent Tuesday night at the White House with the president, drove out to Oak View shortly after noon. She was pale, and there was a. careworn look on her face which showed more eloquently than words how keenly she felt the detnat of her husband. The president was inaccessible to all newsparer men. Col. Lamont said they hnd not received any news of an en couraging character. Not a word hnd been received from either Brice or Senator Gor man, nnd he accepted the verdict of tbe prcs that Harrison had carried New York as eonect. When asked wb r brought about this state of things Lamont declined to venture an opinion. He said, however, hs was cer tain Governor Hill had used his best efforts to secure the presidents re-electon, and the fact that tho governor ran ahead of the Na tional ticket was not to bo accepted as indi cating a. trade of any kind He confessed that he did not understand the idling vff of the vote in Kings county. At Harrison's Home. iNDiAVAr-OLis, Nov. 8. All day Wednes day the streets were crowded with tbrong3 of enthusiastic people. The general himself was outwardly the calmest man in the city. The drizzling rain failed to put a damper on the hilarity; only whilo New York and Indiana hung In the doubtful balance was anxiety depicted on the face of the Indiana- 1 politan. Every encouraging bulletin was received lth yells of happiness, and tbe news that Harrison's plurality in his own state was estimated jxt 6,000 was only clouded by the certainty that his own county went against him. Thousands of telegrams which are not yet given to the public were received by Gen. Harrison. The rain prevented any street demonstra tion upon tho final result, but the crowded hotel lobbies, the throngs of wild umbrella carriers who couldn't stay in, and the omni present tin horn gives evidence that tho Hoosier capital is bubbling over with pride and happiness that is echoed back in rejoic ing all over the state. Of course, both sides claim that frauds were perpetrated, but that don't change the result. In an interview Mrs. Harrison ex pressed her satisfaction at the result of the election and hinted at a -return to Jeffer sonian simplicity in the conduct of the presi dential palace, over which she is to reign. Tho general is reticent though evidently ap preciating the situation for all it is worth. As an afterpiece to the great contest, Harry S. New, Brainard Robison, Daniel Jameson and Richard Thompson, colored, arrested for violations of the election law by deputy Federal marshals, each brought damage suits for $5,000 against Edward Hawkins, Federal marshal, for false impris onment. Harrison, Hines & Miller represent the plaintiffs. .Tint (jo Tliurman is PhU8oplilca1. Columiius, O"., Nov. 8. Judge Thurman spent Wednesday evening at his residonco and received tho news from his son Allen, who, with Outhwnite and otnor prominent Democrat, remained until late at Thur man's law office, Thurman would receive no one, but made one statement through his son in answer to a question. He said: "1 seo Brice has sent out a dispatch saying New York has gone Democratic by 15,000. Returns do not bear him out iu this. I can not bear him out in this. I cannot see the object of sending such news. From tho figures we have here I estimate the Repub licans have certainly carried New York by at lea,t 10.000. "Now Jorsey seems to have gone Demo cratic, but that is small comfort. Wo here have received only one report from Con necticut, and that was anything but fnvora ble. As to Indiana we have nothing except what everybody knows. In fact, it looks us if the people of the United State hud de cided that tariff is not a tax, and they are the arbitrators in this case. If they have, decided so nobody will acquiesce in their de cision moro quickly than L" Mrs. Cleveland's Plan. Washington, Nov. 8. Mrs. Cleveland in tends making her last winter in tbe White House the most memorable, of her career there. She will have lots of friends to stay with her from time to time, and she will vary the beaten track of ofllclal hospitality by a number of less formal events, which she will arrange for tho pleasure of her guests. As long as Indian summer lasts the presi dent aud Mr3. Cleveland will remain at their country place, but they intend to spend a pleasant winter at tbe White House. A lady intimate with Mrs; Cleveland said to-day : "She is not the disappointed woman that people suppose. She has had enough flattery to turn an ordinary woman silly, but it has not affected her a particle, and you will find she is just the kind of a woman to show all kinds of thoughtful little courtesies to the family who will succeed her at the White House. Really she fools the defeat more for the president's ambition than her own sake." The Fifty-First Congreju. New Yokk, Nov. 8. The Press claims that the Republicans will have a majority of j fourteen in the house of representatives, and ! flint: tit.. Bonnt. urtll Ka n M ATfi.a Pi-...i1mit'. that the senate will be a tie. Vice Provident, Morton having tho deciding vote. It says Riddlebqrger's successor, Barlow, is a Demo crat, which makes the senate stand IW to Jb. New Jersey wilt elect a Democrat in place of McPherson. The Republicans may secure tho legislature in West Virginia. If so they will have one ma jority iu tho senate, but if Konna's successor is a Democrat the sonata will be a tie. Tho World says the Democrats will have a majority of 7 iu tbe bouse, aud ma- lose one senator from Delaware. The Sim says it may take the ofllciul count in several doubtful districts to determine the political complexion of tho housti in the Fifty-first congress. The Republicans mado a surprising sweep of the city of St. Louis, and carried three Democratic distilcts. They have carried, apparently, three close dis tricts in Michigan, now represented by Dem ocrats, ami have captured the dUtriuts of Weaver and Anderson, Democrats, in Iowa. Jehu Baker, Republican, is beaten iu Morri son's district. Tho Republicans have car ried tbe Cleveland districts iu Ohio, and two Minnesota districts, now represented by Democrats, One Republican congressman has been y;uiued in Tennessee. The Demo crats have gained four or live districts iu Virginia. There are enough doubtful dis tricts in Virginia yet unreported iu various counties to turn the majority live or six either way. The New York delegation is unchanged. The Republican-elect Stiver Bacon, in the Orange district, and thu Dem ocrats, Wiley over Crowley, in tlie Niagara district. The Tribune says the Republicans will have n majority of from 25 to 30 in the house of representatives of the Fifty-first congress. The Times says the Fifty-first congress will be controlled by the Democrats by an extremely small majority, which may be wiped out altogether by the corrected re turns from -everal disputed districts. The Herald says tho housd will be made up of 103 Democrats, 101 Republicans and one member of the Labor partv. The Siiii'h figures. New Yokk, Nov. 8. The Sun says that Harrison has 11,702 plurality iu New York litate, and that Hill hns 18J.VJ. WISCONSIN. Milwaukee, Wis., Nov. 8. There can be no possible doubt thut Wisci n-lii hns gone Republican by from 10,000 to 0,000 major ity. The returns are coming in slowly, and only thirty-four of the sixtv-seven counties in the state have sent in their figures. These show large gains for tbe R-puitiicans, and it is estimated that itr will result iu a gain of 83 per cent, over the vote of 1SS1. A curious feature is the fact that the Re publicans have made their largest gnitw in Democratic counties, and this is particularly noteworthy in Dane and Ashland counties, waere tbe Republicans have majorities of over 1,000. Tho cotgresslonal contests have resulted in the Democrats gaining a con gressman in the Second district, which is off set by the Republicans getting back their congressman in the Fourth district. Both branches of the legislature will be strongly Republican. Gabe Bouck, one of the best known men in the state, an ex-congressman and a war horse of the Democracy, is defeated in th Third assembly district by Schmidt, a Republican. Schmidt's majority is only XI, but Bouck's defeat was not an ticipated by the Republicans. MINNKSOTA. St. Paul, Minn., Nov. 6. It is estimated that the state gives Harrison aud Morton 28,000 plurality and Merrlam, Republican, for governor 20,00o moro votes than Wilson. All of the congressional districts in the state elect Republican congressmen, Hull beating McDonald in the Third by 1,300 and Dunnell having about tbe same plurality over Wilson in the First. The Globe, Democrat, concedes that the state has gone for Harrison by 1:0,000; f r Merriam, Republican, for governor by 10,000 and that Republican congressmen are elected in all districts. Tho Prohibition vote seems to have been very light. The Republicans have made gains in the legislature and county officers. onio. Columbus, O., Nov. 8. The pluralities as reported to Republican headquarters by county chairman by counties, the aggregate plurality for Harrison being 20,!;, which Chairman Cappellsr says is not likely to be changed much by the official count. Ilaynrx Defeat Itomels. Toledo, O., Nov. 7. William E. Hnynes, Democrat, has defeated Jacob Romeis, Re publican, for congress in the Tenth district, by a majority of 1,50(. This Ls Frank H. Hurd's old,distTict, but has been represented by Romeis for three consecutlvo terms. FI.OKIDA, Jacksonville, Bin., Nov. 8. Florida gives Cleveland electors and Democratic state ticket a majority of something less than 5,000. Returns from precincts in Second district come in very slowly. Baker, Bradford, Bre vard, Hamilton, Lake, Madison, Marion and Orange counties give safe Democratic major ities. A careful estimate places Bullock's, Democratic, majority for congress in tho Second district at 1,033, though tbe llepubli cans still claim it. Nine counties elect Re publican ollleors. This city and county are largely Republican. CONNKCTICUr. HAnTKOHD, Conn., Nov. 8. There is no truth in tho report that an error in New Haven will change the result in Connecti cut. The states goes for Cloveland by about .S50. Two Republicans and two Democrats are elected to congress. Completo returns give Cleveland 74,l0;4 Harrlsou, 74.U19; Fisk, 4,181. Cleveland's plurality, 3S5. For governor, Morris, Democrat, 74,0' t; Bulkley, Republican, 73,420; Camp, Prohi bition, 4,130. The legislature is Republican on joint ballot by 40. Tbe legislature will elect Bulkley as governor. ILLINOIS. Chicago, Nov. 8. The returns from all the counties in Illinois on the vote for presi dent and governor indicates that Gen. Har rison has carried the state by over 1:1,000 plurality, whilo "Private" Fifer, Republican, for governor, has run attoad of Gen. Palmer 13,000 votes. The Democrats elect congress men iu the Second, Twelfth, Thirteenth, Six teenth, Seventeenth and Nineteenth. The Eighteenth will be very close, but the Re publicans claim John Baker ra-elected by a small majority. The Republicans elect four teen congressmen. COLOUADO. Denvek, Col., Nov. 8. Returns have been unusually slow in coming in. It is plain, however, that Townsend, Republican, has neon eiectea to congress Dy a good majority, Tho Republicans will have a majority of thirteen in the senate and twenty-nine in the house. Roturus from twenty-three countfes give Cleveland, 5,044; Harrison, 7,001. Governor: Cooper, Republican, 0,910; rattoison, uomoorat, 0,110. IOWA. Des Moines, Iowa, Nov. S. Twenty three counties, completo voto, givo steady Republicans gains that indicate a llepubli. can plurality of 30,000 for Harrison. Tbe state ticket is but littlo behind and the rail road commissioners are not scratched as badly as was supposed. The Republican candidates will all be elected. . The only Democratic congressman elected is Hayes, in tho second district. CALIFORNIA. Chicago, Nov. 8. A special dispatch from San Francisco to the Dally News says: M. M. Morrow, Republican, is elected to congress from the Fourth district. Tho Republioun majority In California Is about 10,000. AKKANmAS. Little Rock, Nov. 8. The Democrats have curried the state safely, but there is likely to be a contest iu tho First nnd Second congressional districts. Nhw York Cltj's Vote. New Yokk, Nov. 8. Tho voto fop tho Re publican electors in this city was 106,750, and for the Democratic electors it was 102, 003, leaving n total majority for Mr. .Cleve land in this city of 07.J13. The vote for Gen. Fisk, tho Prohibition candidate for president, in this city was 1.20J, against 1,031 for St. John in 1831. But Cowdrey, the Lnbor enndiduto for president, received only 1,559, against 3,499 for Butler in 1SS. Tho figures are practically correct, as they nre from the reports of tho most careful can vassers. In the table of votes for governor, Mr. Miller's voto falls below that of Mr. Harri son, while that for Governor Hill has a cor responding increase over that for Cloveland. This variation is due, no doubt, to the trickery of Hill's managers, who declared that they would knife Cleveland, nnd to the bargaining with the ram element. Hill's total vote in this city is 107,','01, or 08,553 over that cast for Miller. The voto cast for Jones', the Prohibition candidate for gov ernor, was 1,120, a slight falling off from that for Fisk for president. The votes cast for tire three inayorality candidates showed that Uol. Erhardt was second to Mr. Grant, whoso majority was 39,900. Mr. Hewitt's vote was ,100 below that cast for Col. Er hardt, while Mr. Coogan, who, it ls esti mated, would poll 30,000 votes, had a total of 0,680. Mr. Hewitt's vote was 20,014 less than that cast for him in 18SrJ. The story which got abroad in New York Wednesday that a mistake had been mado in the Kings county returns sufficient to give the state to Cleveland proved to bo un founded. It scared Chairman Quay, how ever. Went Virginia Congressmen. New Yokk, Nov. 8. The Republican Na tional committee has received a dispatch from West Virginia claiming that tho Re publicans had elected three congressmen iu that state and u majority of tbe members of the legislature. New Jersey's Legislature. New York, Nov. 6. The lntest returns from New Jersey indicate that tbe Demo crats will have a majority of 5 on joint bal lot iu the next legislature. Sir Joint 3Iucdoii:ilil Interviewed. , Ottawa, Out., Nov. 8. Sir John Mac donald was interviewed on tho subject of the-eloctions in the United States. He said: "I cannot tell the cause which won the elec tion for Mr. Harrison. As to the inter national difficulty, President Cleveland re mains in power until March next, and what course he will adopt I cannot say. I have no reason to believe that tho Republicans are hostile to Canada. They favor a pro tective tantf not unlike our own. There is no great urgency in settling the fisheries question. The fishing season is over for thi3 year. The treaty negotiate 1 lust year U dead. It w as rejected by the United States senate, not by the Canadians. Of course, if negotiations were resumed a new treaty could be framed on the same terms. At any rate all the negotiations will have to bo com menced anew, but I cannot forget that the Washington treaty of 1S72 wus negotiated by a Republican president, with u Repub lican majority in the senate. Is it not rea sonable, therefore, to suppose that the Re publicans will manifest in 19 the same spirit which actuated them iu 1871." COST FIVE L1V S. A Hlooily Political litittle at Livingston, Kentucky. Louisville, Ky., Nov. s. In tho shoot affray at Livingston, Ky., election day, five men were killed and another mortally wounded. In a political discussion Cham pion Mulllns and John Martin pulled their revolvers and commenced firing at each, other. The former was a prominent Republican, the latter a government official. The friends of each took up the quarrel, aud twenty pistols were pglled and a f usilade of shots fired. The desperate men fought for several squares. The fight continued for a quarter of an hour, when, for want of more ammu nition, the sanguinary affray ceased. It was then found that Samuel Ward, a member of tbe Kentucky legislature; John Clifford, an agent of the Louisville & Nash ville railroad; John Martin, government storekeepei ; Frank Stowart, an employe of the Kentucky Central railroad, and Cham pion Mullins were killed, aud J. Shainbrook, a merchant, badly wounded. Fight Hetweou Whites and Hlacks. Norfolk. Va., Nov. 8. A riot occurred in Portsmouth, Va., last night between whites and blacks. Four hundred negroes marched through the streets singing: "Hang Grover Clevelaud on a sour apple tree." ' l They encountered a party of whites and & free fight occurred. Between forty and fifty pistol shots were fired and three white men wounded two of them seriously. The negroes were finally dispersed and the ci$y is now under military protection. One hun dred special policemen have been sworn in to preserve order as more trouble is anticipated. Both classes are well armed. tinnier at Marlon, Ohio. Mawon, O., Nov. 8.
