NEW YORK. 9:30 a. m., Nov. 43"“Ail extra 1
of the Werld just says: The latest returns 1
this morning show Flower’s plurality over 1
Fassett, in the state, ”40.055. The whole I
democratic state ticket’is elected In this I
city Flower’s plurality is 58,857, showing a ‘
democratic falling off of Inore than 10,~ f
000 from the vote for Hill in 1888. The ‘
assembly goes demOcratic by eight, al- ‘
though the republicansclaim they have it. i
The Herald says: We are convinced the :
election of Flower will prove a sort of l
boomerang to the democratic party ‘
in the presidential campaign next year and 1
a blessing in disguise to the repubiicans.
Returns received from the Associated
Press up to noon today show that the dem
ocrats elect 14 senators ‘and the republi- 1
cans 14, with four districts still in oubt, 1
but returns so far' received indicate that 1
the democrats will carry three of these and ‘
the republicans one. ’lhfieflsame returns in- .

figemocglgic, who Is enddrscdkbqy’g’ghgggggflz‘ ,
licans. Of the democratic senators, four
are still in some doubt and of the republi
cans one. ,
New YORK,_ Nov. 4.—Returns received
up to three this afternoon, makes the state ‘
legislature a tie on joint ballot. The dem— l
ocrats have a majority of two in assembly ,
and the republicans a majority of two in 1
the senate. .
wnAr CLEVELAND sArs.
NEW YORK, Nov. 4.——Ex-President Grover
Cleveland today gave his opinions of the
result of Tusday’s election, as follows:
“Any who still think tariff reform settled ,
and an obsolete issue, or that the import
ance of a sound and safe money question 1
. upon which the people can be blinded are
either wilfully wrong or dangerously dull. l
, It seems to me, too, democrats ought to be 1
‘satislied. To a staunch adherent of the l
principles of their party it does not re
quire abuse oi' those who show an inclina—
tion to helg us. Ivery much regret the
defeat of ‘overnor Campbell. He has 4
been a brave and honest oflicial. This .
and the splendid canvass he made. entitled
him to success. While the election of ‘
Flower, Russell and Boies ought to cause ‘
the utmost rejoicing among the democrats,
they should not forget, with these things
comes obligations to be true to the people‘
honest in advocacyvof our principles and
decent in all things.”
MASSECHUSET’I‘S.
BosTON, Nov. 4.—-Tt is estimated in the
whole state Russell, has 156,000 leaving the
governor’s plurality about 5,000. Lieuten
ant Governor Hale and the balance of the
republican state ticket is elected by ample
pluralities. The state auditor, ’l‘refy,
(democrat) is defeated». Returns for the
legislature are very incomplete. The sen
ate will be republican. l‘he house has
complete returns from 137 members, little
more than half, and these stand 92 repub—
licans to 45 democrats. The executive
council will probably stand seven republi
cans to one democrat.
Governor Russell this morning claims
his election by abour 0000. He said: “It
means that Massachusetts is earnestly for
tariil' reform on a line of free raw material.
which has been the chief issue in this state.
It also means that she is lirmly and ag
gressively for a sound currency.’
Bos'ron, Nov. 4.~Thc Journal, rep, at
noon concedes the election of Russel by
8000.
Dispatches indicate that the popular vote
yesterday favored an amendment to the
constitution abolishing poll tax. _
The legislature shows a decided republi
can gain. The republican party will have
a good majority in both houses.
CHICAGO REPUBLICAN
CHICAGO, Nov. 4.——Complete returns from
every precinct in Cook county shows that
the entlre republican ticket was elected
yesterday. The republican candidates for
county commissioners 1n the city district
appear to have received a majority vary
ing from 7,000 to 14,000. The only demo
crat elected was Lyman E. Cooley, drain
age trustee, who comes in as a. minority
representative. A significant feature of
the election is that nearly every man en
dorsed by the American "Know—Nothing"
association appears to have been elected.
OHIO REPUBLICAN. 4
CINCINNATI, Nov. 4.-—Reports would in
dicate that the legislature will be republi
canon joint ballot by a majority of thirty
eight. In Hamilton county 166 precincts
show a net democratic Igain of 2,278, indi
cating a plurality for it cKinle‘y of 5,300.
The new election law delays the returns
in Hamilton county beyon precedent. At
10 o‘clock today there were a number of de- 1
linquent judges who had not reported and 1
the board of elections are about to issue
warrants for their arrest. The plurality
' for McKinley will approach 5,000. The en—
' tire republican legislative ticket is elected.
I COLUMBUS, 0., Nov. 4.——Rcturns from the
l elections still come slowly. At the state
) headquarters of the two parties, unofficial
1 information has been obtained from prob
: ably half of the 88 counties. Chairman
Hahn of the republican committee, claims
goglurality for McKinley of between 10,-
and 21,000 and that the republican ma-
jority in the general assembly will be thir
ty-seven on joint ballot. Chairman Neal
of the democrats, says McKinley’s plural
ity will be at least 12,000 and may reach 20,-
000 and that the mfiublicans will have
twenty-eight on joint allot. A feature of
the result is the complete drop out of the
people’s party. Their vote in the state will
not exceed 11,500 and they claimed belore
election at least 75,000.
CANTON, Nov. 4., Major McKinley has
gone to the hotel in order to accommodate
the crowds of people calling to congratu
late him. He is receiving numerous tele
grams of congratulation.
PEOPLE’S PARTY DOWNED.
‘ KANSAS Cx'ry, Nov. 4.—-—Election returns
‘froni Kansas are coming in very slowly.
Nothing has been heard from any counties
in the western part of the state. Almost
all the counties of the eastern portion have
made partial returns. Such returns as
have been received indicate that the peo
ple’s party has lost its prestige; out of
lifty counties from which returns have
been received six will probably elect the
people’s party ticket at greatly reduced
pluralities. The other counties will elect
straight republican and democratic tickets.
As there is no state officers voted
for and on account of the fusion of the re~
publicans and democrats or democrats and
people's party in many counties it is im
possible to make anfy satisfactory compari
son With the vote 0 last year. i
KANSAS CITY, Mo., Nov. 4.—_Dispatches‘
received by the Star from all parts of Kan
sas indicate republican success in most of
the counties. These dispatches are from
about 65 of the 106 counties of the state.
The people's party are successful in not
more than six of the counties reported, ‘
and all over the state there is a
large decrease of the people’s vote,
while the republicans made heavy gains,
the judges were elected in the judicia dis
lricts and a hard fight was made in each
instance. The people’s party and demo
crats each elected one. The others are re
publicans.
IOWA LEGISLATUIIE 0. K.
DES Momma, Nov. 4.—The situation in
this state has not changed materially. Up
to 1 o’clock 504 precincts out of a total of
1940 are regorted. They give Wheeler,
rep., 68,000; oies, dem., 69.035; the same
precincts last ear gave Hutchinson, rep.,
59,314; Boies, gem” 59,932, a net democratic
gain of 325. The republican committee is
still hopeful on account of the country dis
tricts which have been slow in reporting.
The democrats claim the whole state ticket
elected. The republicans claim all‘but the
governor and will not concede that until
the back precincts are heard from. The
democrats concede to the republicans the
lower house of the legislature and claim
the senate to be a tie. In the senatorial
disrrict in doubt the chances are conceded
to be with the republicans. If the republi—
carry it the senate will stand, republicans,
27 "to democrats 25. ,
The republicans claim the election of
Van Houten lieutenant governor. The
house is republican by four. The senate is
in doubt on account of the Appanoose and
Davis districts. in this the republicans
have the better chause. If the republicans
carry this thesenate will be a. tie with the
presuiing olflcer probably a republican.
SOUTH DAKOTA.
ST. PAUL, M,nn., Nov.4.—Returns from I

people’s party. The entire republican city

A TREACHEROUS BLOW SAID TO

A Concllatory Dispalch From San
tlago Which Does Not [look
Like War.
LONDON, Nov. 4.—A private dispatch
from Valparaiso says there is reason to
believe the Chileans. believing the war in
evitable, will not allow the United States
to select their own time to declare war, but
will suddenly give Egan his passport and
at once attack the Baltimore, so as to have
the advantage of the first blow. It is not
believed among foreign residents oi Valpa
raiso that the other foreign men-of~war in l
Valparaiso harbor would permit this
treacherous act, but Captain Schley is ;
keeping a vigilant lookout. ‘
CONCILIATORY.
NEW YORK, Nov. 4.—-The Valparaiso cor
, respondent of the Herald says: “I am just
in receipt of a report from Santiago to the
‘ effect that the minister of foreign afl'airs,
3 Matta, has sent a dispatch to Minister
- Egan relative to the Baltimore affair. It is
, said to be couched in a conciliatory tone
and to evince in every way a desire to see
l that justice is done as son as the inquiry in
- this city is concluded.”

A BOLD ROBBERY.
ANOTHER CLEAN SWEEP IN AN OR
EGON BANK.
They Got Away With Nearly Five
Thousand. Dollars and Took
to the Timber.
LAGRANDE, Ore., Nov. 4.—A robbery
which exceeded the recent Enterprise af
fair in the amount token, was perpetrated
upon the Farmers’ Mortgage and Savings
bank of Summerville, in this county, last
night. Summerville is a village three
miles from Elgiu, on a branch of the Union
Pacific and sixteen miles north of this city.
As the mails reach the village late in the
evening and leave early in the morning, it
was the custom of H. C. Rinehart, cashier
of the bank, to attend to his correspond
ence after supper. As he was leaving the
bank about 9 o’clock last evening, he was
met at the door by two men with sacks
over their heads who pressed pistols to his
head and ordered him to go back and open
the safe. He stepped backed into the
room and they followed him, pulling down
the blinds and lightnlng the lamp. They
displayed great coolness, not only taking
all the money? in the‘ safe but examining
apers as well. The amount taken was
S4BOO. After leaving the bank they went
on foot toward the timber. There is much
excitement in Summerville this [morning
and preparations are being made to insti
tute a thorough search for the robbers, 1
who. it is su )posed, are residents of the
neighborhood. ,

AN AWFUL DEATH.
1 SEVEN'I‘EEN MEN ARE DASIIED 'l‘o
3 PIECES.
Breaking. 0! 3. Hope in the Ann
conda Mine, at Butte,
Montana.
BUTTE, Mont., Nov. 4.—At midnight last
night, when one of the shift men at Ann.
conda mine was relieving another, 17 men
were killed by the falling of a cage and two
fatally injured. The cage was full of
miners returning from work. As they
stepped out into the open air their places
were at once taken by 19 men who were to
take up the work they had just abandoned,
and the cage started to the depths below.
The rope had been unwound but a couple
of times from the slowly revolving wind
lass, when there was a sudden snap and a
cry of horror from the shaft. The rope
had been broken and the cage with its 19
inmates precipitated in the bottom of the
mine. It was some little time before as
sistance could be sent to them. A number
of miners who were through work and
Waiting to be relieved at the bottom of the
shaft, were waiting for the cage to take
them out. Amidst them, narrowly miss—
ing some, the cage dashed. Little could
be done. "‘0! the“'l9‘men who‘made the‘te‘rr
rible ride. 17 were dead. Their forms were I
crushed beyond all resemblance to human 1
beings, while two were breathing, but there 1
are no hopes of their recovery. (

Discussion as to the validity of the city
bonds was before the council last night,.
and Mayor Horr, the city attorney, and
Councilman Ford were appointed to look
after the matter, and institute proceedings
to tesq the legality of the bonds should they
deem it advisable. The mayor and city at
torney will probably visit Seattle to con
sult with Judge Struve.
A letter received by the city clerk, placed
the matter in a different light. The letter
read:
“DEAR Sm: Have the purchasers raised
any legal questions about your bonds ? if
they do we will be geld to take the bonds
on our bid at any time. I feel sure they
are all right, but a teclmical attorney
might refuse to pass them.”
The following statement shows the city’s
‘ financial condition on October 1, 1891. The
, statement was prenared by the city clerk
f and forwarded to tie attorneys in. the city

Press-Times: The National guard is
thoroughly loyal to Colonel Holmes in his
difficulty with General O’Brien, and a
number of the boys_ are gomg over to
Olympia with him. He stands triul for
conduct becoming an oliicer and gentle
man, in having wiped the perspiration
from the adjntant general’s more or less
fevered nose,‘some time ago. The trial
takes place tomorrow evening. General
O‘Brien will be there with his wounded
feelings and uniform. It is understood
that he will put in the music and the
words of ”The Old Settler” as evidence.
Now,if he had only got an old settler when
Haines toyed lovmgly with his probocis it
‘would have saved a lot of trouble—might
l have put his nose out of joint, as it were.

Editor Tribune:
I do not think the Baptists were treated
fairly or generously by the proprietor of
l the Olympia theater. He charged them
SSO for the use of the building one night for
their carnival,’ while afew weeks ago he
gave the buildmg for one night to the re
publicans for $25. Isn't this discriminat
ing? One was for the benefit ofthe church
and the other polities. BAPTIHT.
