THE FAIR SWEEP News of Republican Land Slides Received With Much Enthusiasm. COUNTY TICKET VERY CLOSE The Democrat, Will Elect Sheriff, Treasurer and Commissioner,— Legislative Ticket Close. The returns which were flashed on the canvas in front of the Lewiston National Bank building last night brought out a large crowd who waited in almost breath less suspense for the returns to come. Democrats and republicans mingled to gether. The crowd was most orderly, no fights or mishaps occurriug. The returns from New York and Illinois coming as a landslide for McKinley showed fully the sentiment ot the American people. Re publicans in the crowd were jubilant and the democrats looked on in silence at the one-sidéd affair, a great many refusing to believe that the reports which were chronicling republican victories, were true. The returns from Massachuesetts which at first showed democratic gains, and which lent enthusiasm to Bryanites, rolled into line later with republican majorities, freezing the countenances of the Biyanites. Early returns from New York City showed McKinley to tie run ning well, but Bryan's increase from time to time lightened the hearts of his ad mirers. The plurality of Bryan in the city was much less than he had expected. The state returns showed McKinley's strength outside of New York City, but the proportion of gains for Bryan were largely' in excess of New York City gains, which were cut from the estimates. The crowd roared and cheered when the Illinois returns were flashed and the heavy gains by McKinley in Cook county and Chicago only tended to dampen the spirits of the Bryanites. No returns from the State of Idaho were received last night but the county furuished two country precincts giving a majority of two. This was some little consolation to the demo crats though by midnight the most of them had gone home. The bulletins were kept open until 4 p. m., when they were discontinued. This morning's re turns from country precincts were being received at the board at 4th and 5th streets the early returns received showed every thing democratic. West Lewiston pre cinct showed a total of about 792 votes cast, McKinley electors carrying the pre cinct by 73. The state ticket also went about 75 republican. The republican county ticket was car ried by about 75 majority although Lydon the democratic treasurer and Kroutinger démocratie sheriff both ran ahead of the republican ticket. Leeper ran ahead of Isaman while the other two republican commissioners made safe majorities. East Lewiston precint showed a vote of a little over 400. It showed the republican ticket ahead about the same proportion as in West Lewiston, though Leachuian, for sheriff, ran ahead of Kroutinger. Outside of Lewiston, returns received show strong democratic gains, and Leland, a strong republican precinct, gave a democratic majority of 25 Returns from Spalding, Heemati, Bedrock, Ilatwai, Waha and Tammany showed democratic gains with a fair show of carrying the county. At the time of going to press, sixteen pre cincts heard from give McKinley about 100 majority. Eight precincts yet to hear from, however, it is generally con ceded that the democrats can now only carry five of the offices: Sheriff, treas urer and commissioners, though a heavy majority in two precincts would give the commissioners to the republicans. Nevada. Reno, Nov. 7. —The republicans con cede their defeat by Hoc. The democrats I claim 300. Newlaml is re-elected to con I gress. McKINLEY and ROOSEVELT Sweeping Republican Victory in the Nation —305 Votes in the Electoral College. A LANDSLIDE AGAINST BRYANISM To the Republican Column Must be Added Nebraska, Kansas, South Dakota, Washington and Wyoming. Latest ofldatao. Boise, Nov. 7—[Special to the TEDDER received at 5:30]. State for McKinley very close with republican congressman and legislature and democratic state ticket. Chicago, Nov. 7—The nation has gone overwhelmingly republican with the coming of daylight and conservative esti mates from recent returns from the var ious states there seemed no doubt what ever that there is a republican victory in all states which were thought to have a betting chance either way. McKinley's majority is so large that nothing but a clean endorsement can be figured. Ary an's standing is remarkable in Missouri. Where it was expected he would run strong this morning's figures give Bryan a loss all along the line. St. Louis, how ever, went democratic by one thousand, though the normal republican major ity is sixteen thousand. The best information now obtainable shows that the next house of congress will have two hundred republicans 149 democrats and 8 independents. The republicans carried both the state and national tickets in Kansas. Indiana was given up by the democratic chairman after midnight, while Kentucky is claimed by both parties. South Dakota and Minnesota are undoubtedly republi can. London, Nov. 7.—The papers say 16 to i killed Bryan. We are jubilant. Bryan Loses Nebraska. Lincoln, Neb., Nov. 7.—"We have been shot full of holes,'' is the way Bryan's closest friends refer to yesterday's electiou. The crushing defeat of the Ne braskan has brought deep gloom to the populist national headqnarters. Bryan's choicest hope was for a plurality of the popular vote whether successful or de feated and the blow staggers him. The great republican gains in Lincoln and the state were least expected. This morning it appears more than probable that McKinley has carried the state. The fusionists yet hope to carry the legislature which will insure Bryan a seat in the United States senate. As soon as Bryan heard of his defeat for president his first question was concerning the leg islature. The race between Poynter, fu sionist and Deitrich, republican, for gov ernor is very close. Another sorrow for Bryan is the blow dealt his friend Petti grew of South Dakota. "Returns Slow In Idaho. Boise, Nov. 7.—The returns are slow. Republicans show gains through the state, but not sufficient to overcome democratic plurality. The state is probably for fu sion. Oregon 15,000 Portdand, Nov. 7.—The republicans claim Oregon by 15,000. The democrats make no claims, completely abdicating the state, explaining that their vote did not come out. The republicans carry all but four counties. The returns from the state are 10,000 less than in the June elec tion, but are not all in yet. Portland complete gives McKinley 8744; Bryan, 3835- __ t __ Shoshone County Latest advices received at democratic headquarters say that part of Shoshone county, as far as heard from gives Bryan 500 majority. Hunt, democrat, for gov ernor 350 majority. The balance of the democratic ticket has a majority of 110 Angus Sutherland, republican, for sheriff and anti-Sleunenberg commissioners' election is conceded. Washington For McKinley Seattle, Nov. 7. —Washington is probably republican on the national ticket, with the democratic governor, Rogers re-elected by a narrow margin. The returns shaw that both republican congressmen are elected. Seattle gave a small republican majority. Some of the democrats, including Cudabee. sheriff, were elected. Idaho County Democratic. Mt. Idaho, Nov. 8.— Special to Teller. —In twelve precincts heard from Idaho county goes democratic. State senator received 112 majority. The democrats have all the county officers, though Prank Brown, (rep ) commissioner for northern district, has a fighting chance to wiii. Where Croker Failed New York, Nov. 7.— Croker's boast to carry New York by eighty thousand dwindled to 27,114. The state goes re publican by 152,386. McKinley came to line with 176,500. The legislature is overwhelmningly republican. Croker telegraphed Bryan condolence. Urofino Republican Orofino, Nov. 7 —[Special to the Tedder ] The city of Orofino, Shoshone county, went republican with one exception. Moody (fusion) for state Senator received 103 majority over Dunn (republican). Clark Wins. Butte, Mont., Nov. y .— Montana is democratic-fusion by considerable major ity. The fusionists will have control of the legislature when Clark conies up for re-election. Democrats Carry Arizona. Phoenix, Nov. 7.— The republicans this morning abandoned hope, conceding election of Smith, the democratic dele gate congress by a small nm?ority. Kansas. is Topeka, Nov. 8.—No doubt the repub ' Means have carried Kansas both for the national and state tickets. Peck Precinct.

Clerk, (dem.) received majority of 4 for senator. Treisch (dem,) foi legislature received e majority of 28 end Mounce (dem.) e majority of ai. Kroutinger, for sheriff, received e majority of 19. Me Cou ville, for treasurer 11 majority, he ritor end Johnson had small majori tie«. Ward, majority aa; Watson, a; Cheney, 4; and democratic commissioners re ceived smell majorities. McKinley 292 Sore, N*w York, Nov. 7 —McKinley's vote in the electorial college probably will be 292, a gain of ai votes over 1896. The indications point to Bryan receiv ing 153 •• agoinri 176 in 1896. McKinley carried ell eûtes that he did in '96 except Kentucky, where indications favor Bryan but republican count seems otherwise. McKinley captures Nebraska, Kansu, lltah, South Dakota, Washington, Wy oming, from the democratic column. The popular vote will show e decrease from that cut in 1896. Congressional Claims. Chicago, Nov. 7— Chairmen Babcock of the republican congressional commit tee, said he wu sure of a hundred ninety five republicans in the next houae with sixteen or seventeen yet to hear from and from these he expects to make the republican membership of the house over two hundred end possibly more. The gains so far are: California i, Idaho 1, Ne braska t, New York 7, Ohio, i, Penn 6, Utah t. The losses are probably, one in Massachusetts, one in ' Missouri, North Carolina and probably five in Illinois. How Bryan Feels. Lincodn, Nov. 7— -Bryan cannot con ceal his feelings. He looks disappoint ed and acts the part. He breakfasted at nine o'clock and mid he got a full nights rest. He promised a public statement soon, analyzing the vote. He is cut to the quick over the negative position of his town people. It la predicted he won't remain long in Lincoln. At ten thirty the state manager informed him that the Nebraska legislature was safely fusion. The contest, however, ia dose. From Latah County. Moscow, Nov. 7,—[Special to the Tedder].
