The official count of the election return of Tuesday began at the court house at noon to day, promptly at IS o'clock, and at this writing it doesn't look as if the work will he completed before five or six o'clock. Judge Beehtel and Marr are presiding. The board consists of tbo following : Harry Scllgmau, Cbarle N. McQinness, J. J. O'Connor, Harry liaag and Albert Ibihtlir. There are several lawyers in attendance to look after the Interest of the various candi dates. Their presence is due to the narrow margin by which several of the candidates aro claimed to be elected. TIkho represent ing the Republican candidates are Charles A. Snyder, W. J. Whltchonsc. and A. L Sbay, Ksq., while the interests of tho Democracy are guarded by George J. Wadlinger, M. P. MeLoughlin, lfeq.9., and Representative Noeacher. The majorities given above aro semi official, but they will not be changed materially by the oflieUl count. They have been computed by careful statisticians, and the results each secured tallied one with the other. The exact status of the Treasurer and Commissioner contest, as well as the Recorder, Is fully established. There is no doubt of the election of Doerflinger over Depew, Nlehtor ove Jenkyn and Eaitner oyer Brennan. Early this morning Kantner led Brennan by CO votes, but since then it was found that those figures should bo increased to 70, four votes having been discovered in Kantner's favor. The official count is tedious and slow. At three o'clock this afternoon Mlddleport had been reached, not quite half of the districts. Up to that time no material change had been found in tho result as reached in the semi official count as made last evening. The only change was In adding one vote to Kantner, thus bringing his majority to 71; and five votes were found in favor of Depew, reduc ing Doerfilnger's majority to 48. At 4 o'clock tbiaafternoon they had reached Pottsville and no further changes had been found. PACTIONAL FEEMNO. Tho result has oauted much bitter feeling in both parties. The success of Wadlinger and the defeat of Carey and Depew is some thing the Democrats did not figure on. They were confident that the Delano man would lead the ticket, and tbat Carey's ac knowledged strong Democratic tendencies would cause the voter of that party to rally to his support to a man, hnt in this they were mistaken. If there was ono man on the ticket whose loyalty to the party nominees in the past tbat deserved recognition, it was the Butler township statesman. Both Carey and Depew were special favorites with the leaders who had In charge the Wadlinger campaign, and their defeat causes much dis appointment. Cass township cut Depew, several of the Democratic leader in that stronghold work ing openly against him. Cass, it will be re membered, bad a candidate for Treasurer be fore the Democratic convention, and his as pirations in that direction were given no sonsideration. It is reported that Judg Dunn took an active part In Tuesday's con test, opposing the election of Opie. This is accounted fur because of tho persons! in terest manifested by Sheriff Toole In the Donaldson candidate. Them was never much friendship lost between the Judge and the Sheriff, but now the breech is wider. North-of-the-muuntain Democrats also have their grlevaucas. All the defeated caudi' dates come from that section, notwtthstaud lug the fact that that is the Democratic stronghold and is always depended upon to roll up the majorities. Without the assistaace of those strong Democratic districts in the 30tb Senatorial district the Democratic party wouldn't cut much of a figure In this county. Said a promiueut Democrat from that sectiou to-day : "We have been slaaghtered in the house of our friends, but it Is only a repetl tion of history Breuna, the defeated can didate for Commissioner, has simply met the same fate that P J Ferguson did when south-of-tbe-mountaiu Democrats elected Absolutely Makes the food more oyu & O'CLOCK TO-NIGHT. Martin at the sacrifice of Kerguteu. there Is a day of reckoning." But Tho Pottsville Chronicle, the Democratic mouth-piece, size up the situation in this manner : "A sure Kopubllean or a sure Democratic vote in Schuylkill county I a thiug of the past. The strong man on tbe day after the nominating convention of either party may lie dofoated on election day. while the weak man ou oouventiou day may turn up the strong nun In November. This truth was fully exemplified yesterday but tbe story which the Chronicle is compelled to tell to-day a story of disappointment might have been ninth more cheering to Democracy had the management of the party ben less exclusive." The Chronlels Is correct. Tbe result k a disappointment to the Democrats in more ways than one. Besides losing the most im portant offices, politically, the one man the rabid free silver men were anxious to see de feated was elected by a large majority. That man is George J. Wadlinger, tbe Judge-elect. Tbat is the most bitter pill of all. aud shows conclusively that the sllverltos in the Demo cratic party, or rather their self styled leaders, cut very little figure in the political arena in this county. While the Democrats have their troubles, the Republicans also have grievances. Messrs. Brumm and Whitehouso come in for the greatest share of censure. It Is well known that Brumm was interested particularly in the election of Henning and Berger, while Whitehouse's especially favorite was Doer flinger. lis is also blamed for the defeat of Jenkyn, It being openly charged that Wblto house requested bis Republican frieuds "not to bo too bard on Nichter," the Democratic candidate. So you see, dear reader, many sores have been left as a result of Tuesday's election, which will take a long while to heal. QUAIL'S LAMENT. Chairman C. E. Quail, who labored inde fatigueably for the success of the Republican ticket in the campaign just closed. Is not backward in offering deserved admonition for the defeat of a portion of tbi ticket in this county on Tuesday. In speaking on tbe sub ject be said : "The Republican parly in Schuylkill county was Tuesday taught a leswn from which it should profit. It bas been demon strated that when good men are placed on the ticEet they can be elected where tbere is unity of purpose and a prevalence of harmony within the party rauks. It is in evidence, and the registration books of the county show it, that there Is a normal Republican tendency among its voters, but with each recurring election there arises that same hydra-headed mouster of jealousy, petty prejudice and per sonai vilification ana avarice which means certain ignomlnous defeat to the true princi pies of the Republican party, which, in this instance, was the means of defeating our able candidate for Judge, Hon. D, C. Henning, There Is lacking that unanimity which must alone servo to the end of winning in Schuylkill county. What some build up others would attempt to tear down, and in consequence there is the repeated, Ineffective display of these conditions. Pretending party leaders resort to personal vilification. slander, and party sacrifice owing to a satiate desire to get even, or with an apparent eager nesa for personal or political selfaggraudize- ment. What the Republican party needs in Schuylkill county, in tbe future as in tbe past. Is centralization of purpose, a greater prevalence of harmonious and coacerted action. It wants to rid Itself of these con tamlueting influences, and victory will perch on its banners with each renewed effort And in this connection I would not exempt the press. We need more aggressive Republican organs, free and untrammeled exponents of the cause, which will stand. shoulder to shoulder, with the party and IU chairman. Had tbe Republican pre In Schuylkill county entered upon the ad vocacy of the entire ticket earlier in this campaign the result to-day might be more gratifying. On tbe other hand I contend that greater consideration should be shown tbe press by the party, and the newspapers which are loyal to the oauso given the just recognition their energetic efforts in our be half entitles them." llauser's Up-to-Date Mrat Market, unerry ana unestnut streets.

Nor I. --The statistician at th Republican headquarter work ed all day and night endeavoring to swurt some an orate figure on th ptamllty of Judg Nah. the Republi can candidate for governor, and this morning an unofficial table of plurali ties by counties was completed. This how that In 57 counties Nash (Kep ) has SI.SM over Mclean I Dem.). and In SI counties McLean has 14. OSi over Nash. This gives Nash over McLean In the state Mi.JW. It Is not believed the oftklal returns will make any Im portant change In these fltrurss No figures are available on the total vote In th state, as the committee sought to obtain only pluralities. Notwith standing effort were made to pet the vote for Jonee. returns have been se cured from only 40 of the S counties. These ' Include tbo rountlee In which the heaviest Jone vote was polled and show a total of 91.000. The remain ing counties will swell the Jones vote to 100,000. There Is an unusually large Republican majority In both branches of tbs legislature. H Is understood Mr. McLean may make a statement bearing on the causes thst brought about the result JudsD Nash, the governor-elect, has re ceived many congratulations, especi ally over carrying Mn own county ol Franklin by over 2.000. The county was carried by the Democrats for gov ernor by 1,300 two years sgo. The total vote was perhaps exceed ed only at tbe last presidential election It will reach 020.000. as compared with 784.0O0 last yenr and 84,000 In 1897. with which year the vote was com pared. The plurality of Judge Nash exceeds that of President McKlnley In 1SSHS and almost doubles that of (kv ernor Hushnell In 1887. The Jones vote is the largest ever polled for a third candidate. The Republican figures on the legis lature are- House Itepuhllcans, Si; Democrats, 45; doubtful, 1. Senate Republicans, 18; Democrats.il; doubt ful, 2. A KENTUCKY CONTEST. tlotli RIAp CIaIiii (.ovrrtinrohtii. Hut thi I.tttflnlHttirf Ih lmiMmt!t. Louisville. Nor 9. -No nutter what result the face of the returns of Tues day's slate electron shows, a contest is very likely to occur. Additional re turns received continue to show Re publican gains, and basing an estimate upon the normal complexion of the precincts still unreported, indicate a plurality of 6.000 or S.000 for W. S. Taylnr for governor. The belated re turns are mostly from mountainous counties, which are strongly Republi can. The Eleventh district, which In 1896 gave McKlnley a plurality of 19.- CC0, Is only about half reported. Klaven out of the 19 counties In this district cive Taylor pluralities aggregating 12. 0C2, Indicating that the Republicans carried the district by about the same figures as in 159. The (loebel people cling to their claim of a plurality of 5,000 in the state, these figures being the estimate made by the nominee himself. At Republican headquarters In this city Taylor's plurality Is placed at S.CO0. In neither case Is It possible to the figures upon which the claim Is based, each side evidently fearing that giving publicity to the reports of Its agents throughout the slate might work to the advantage of Its opponent in tne event or a contest. Almost complete returns from Louis ville and Jefferson county do not change the previous estimate of a Re publican plurality of a little over 3.000. Governor Bradley Is still In the city and announced that he will remain here for several days. In view of th probability of a con test over the vote for governor, this statement, made by Chairman Long, of the Republican committee. Is sig nificant. Said Mr. Long: "The legislature Is close, hut I think we have lost both houses. From semi official returns from all counties ex cept 12 and careful estimates from these we have carried the state by $.000 plurality for Taylor." In the event of a contest It will come before the legislature. This Is the case only with the officers of governor and lieutenant governor. The latest developments bring the legislature Into prominence, because of the pmtabllity that It ultimately will have to de termine who Is to be the next Gover nor of Kentucky!
