Kent county yesterday repudiated the
ring of Democrats who have so long
ruled the county, and gave the Republi
can ticket a majority of over 625. Out
of eight ltepr; sjutativo districts heard
from the Republicans carried them
all in majorities ranging from
15 to 209. Complete returns
from two senatorial districts show the
election of .1. Frank; Allee, Republican,
in the Third and S. J. Abbott, Republi
can, in tbe Fifth. Partial returns from
the ?jj»t Senatorial District gives Dr. T.
C Moore, Republican, a plurality of 30.
Partial returns from the Second Senator
id district gives Gamaliel Garri
Republican, a majority of 45.
I, is not thought that returns
fr nn lhe Second and Third Repretenla
ti a Distr.ets will change the pluralities
o; Moore and Garrison. As it stands
jiow, the Republicans have elected 10
