Republicans Will Again Take the
Reins of Government.
A Republican' President and Repub
lioan Majority in Both Houses
of Congress.
Later returns have not materially
changed the national vote from that
given last week. The oflki il count
stands Harrison 2-\d and Cleveland
162 votes in the. electoral college, i
counting West Virginia's six votes!
for Harrison, though the official count!
may give them to Cleveland. The re
turns from the mountain districts of
that state are blow coming in and both
sides claim the victory by a small ma
jority. The republicans maintain their!
majority in the senate and gain con- !
trol of the home by aboti tls majority,
which is tha best news the territories
could receive. Tin; republican con
gress will admit those territories knock- j
ing at the door of the Union with the,
greatest possible dispatch.
In the tcnitory John J5. Alien, dele
gate to congress, is ahead by about !
GOOO, it is thought, when complete re- '
turns are in. So far as reported, up j
to the time of going to press, only five
counties have given Voorhees a major- ;
ity, and these majorities give a total cf '•
not much more tiian a hundred. With \
Allen's majority at 6000 this shows a
gain of over 8000 to the republicans
over delegate vote of 1880. The ter
ritorial legislature will be republican
in both branches. It is reported that j
only one democrat has been elected to
the council. Returns thus far received
give the republicans 20 and democrats
4 in the house. The vote of Whit
man county, as canvassed by Auditor
Turner, Probate Judge Liv by and \
Deputy Treasurer Smith, is given in
detail in the table. Allen gets ama
jority of '241, a gain of ■"■'.'l to the re
publicans, compared with delegate vot<
of 188 G. Of the county officers, re
publicans elect 8 out of 11. The
official count gives Mr. Bean, candi
date for school superintendent, :*. ma j
joiity of 89. The republicans have two
legislators and the democrats one.
Republican majority in county about |
"205, a gain of forty. Thus fully
equipped in republican majorities we
are ready to hold a stnto election at
the earliest opportunity.
Uniontown is still the deaioeratic]
stronghold, the party vote lieing about!
four to one.
'C^Ljcpublican tnnjority \u Whit—
. in county, as sliouh l«y the vote for
military officers, is about 295. In I
1886 it was 253.
The phenomenal majority of 12-19
lor the republican candidate for pro
bate judge exceeds the total vote cast
for t!i i deal »oriti: cmli i ite.
For coroner the democrats had no j
regular candidate, th.> convention noui
ioee declining to run. Fourteen per
sons racteved votes for coroner.
Ed. Jones, republican candidate ;• r
sheep commission) r, was reelected by
a bandaome plurality over the 27 per
■oot who received votes for the ofii •.
Clinton is the banner republican
prt-cinct, castiog its entire '■'■'■> votes
for Allen. The political complexion
of the precinct, as shown by tha vote
for other otlicvrs, U 29 republican to
4 tleruccratic.
The prohibitionists jiollt-il lcsi than
one-halt the number of votes claimed
by them before the election, Rogtr S.
Green, candidate for delegate, receiv
ing 113 in the county. The highest
prohibition vote was for C. M. Kin
ciid, candidate for prosecuting utter
my, who receive,l 157. The prohibi
tien vote being so bid all and scatter
ing it is omitted from the table.

Pierce county is"s2G. The prohibi
tion vote for delegate was 84.
Voorhees had majorities in Colum
bia, Douglas, Franklin, Mason aud
Skamania counties, totalizing at some
thing over 100. -~-
In Walla Walla county the repub
licans elected everything but probate
judge and coroner, by majorities rang
j> ing .from 7 to 438.

'VViui elected a sheriff in Walla Walla

Cleveland's official majority in
' Georgia i 3 00,003.

is 79,879. Elaine's plurality in 1884
Republicans gain one congressman
in Kentucky, making t*o in the dele
New York and Indiana, with their
•11 electoral votes, inarched out of the
"doubtful" column in fine style.
Ex-Senator Mahone, of Virginia, is
confident that a fair canvass will give
I the state's electoral vote to Harrison.
The Chicago Tribune figures the
next congress as follows: Senate—Re
| publicans 38, democrats .'57, with one
j state to hear from. House—Repub
licans 175, democrats 150.
The result of the election in Kings:
j county, N. V., was a surprise to the
democratic leaders, who expected 23,
--i 000 plurality for Cleveland. The
shrinkage is accounted for by the re
; turn of mugwumps and prohibitionists
lof four years ago to the republican
: party.
In Delaware the democrats have a
movement on foot to unseat a republi
can elected to the legislature, which
would make it a tie on joint ballot and
1 prevent the election of a V. S. senator,
thereby placing the appointment in the |
hands of the governor, who would be
expected to name a democrat.
The latest tables on the complexion i
| of the next national house of represen
tatives show that the republicans have
elect* I 25 members from the southern!
states, viz : Arkansas 2, Florida, 1, :
Kentucky 2, Louisiana 1, Maryland 3,
i Missouri 4, North Carolina 1, Tennessee
13, Virginia 4, West Virginia 2. The j
house seems to be republican by about |
15 majority.
In West Virginia the all important I
: official count iv the mountainous parts
\ of the state is not complete, and until it
j is no one will know definitely whether !
the electoral ticket is republican or
I democratic. The majority cannot be |
more than 200 or 300 either way. The
. republican state committee has raised
its estimate from 125 and 200 to the
above figure?, as it claims, while the
I democratic claim it from 400 to 500.
George William Curtis, chief mug
I wunip, accounts for Cleveland's de-
at as follows: "1 think the result
was due chiefly to the presentation of
a ingle issne'which the president's
party accepted but did not desire,
which was new and unexpected to the
country. Much is due also to disap
pointment with the president's admin
istration of the civil service reform
laws, to trading of votes, and to lack
■ of personal popularity."

The Gov^rhou Pmoclaims —The
governor of Washington territory has
issued a brief but beautiful Thanksgiv
ing proclamation. He. gays: "By
authority of the established custom of
this country, I hereby designate the
last Thursday of November as Thanks
giving day for the year 1888. I recom
mend that on that day the people of
Washington territory do assemble", in
their places of worship, in their school
houses am] society halls, in their log
gers' camps and miners' cabins, on
their ships and by the firesides cf rich
and poor, in city and country, and
there give thanks to Almighty (bid for
his infinite goodness.to us and all men.
If any homeless ones be seen standing
by the byways on that day, I tru*
that those who are more fortunate will
care for them, that they may see the
silver lining of the clouds and feel -the
sunshine of kindness for a moment,
and so not despair of human nature.
Such bread will return, in blessed form,
, to those who east it upon tliu waters."
