Official, or rather semi-official, returns
havo been received so far from about
forty-five out of the eignty counties of
the state, but these are suflicient to set
tle the makeup of the Minnesota dele
gation in the lower house of the next
congress. In several of the districts
the contest is close, and the victors
have had few votes to spare. This is
true in the Seventh, where Boeu,
Hie People's party candidate, wins by
Bbout 1.200, and in the Sixth, where
where Maj. Baldwin is ahead about
1.000. Congressman Hall's majority
will reach 2,000. lie carried Meeker
county by 44, a train of about
410, "and gallant old Scott rolls
up about 1,800 for him. Dakota
slumped a couple of hundred,
but McLeod, Carver, Sibley and Le
Bueur nil came to the front and center
with substantial evidences of their
Democracy, Goodhue gave Heatwole
1,400, Rice about f>oo and Reuville less
than 200.
And yet Chairman Jamison, of the
Republican state committee, has been
claiming that the district is doubtful. '
In the Sixth district Maj. Baldwin
surprised the ooposition. Lie carried
Steams by 2.200, the home of his op
ponent, a pretty substantial proof, by
the way, of the Democracy of the men
Of old Steams. Duluth turned around
and gave Maj. Baldwin the hand
some majority of 451, which
absolutely insures his election
by at least 1,000. This is a triumph
worth winning. The fight was against
great oilds, and its results will have a
tendency to stop Kindred-Nelson ex
hibitions iv the future in this state.
As to the state ticket the returns are
bo tar from complete that it is almost
impossible to make an estimate. There
is no way of figuring out the
returns of this election. Hardly
any two counties bear any resemblance
in the way of loss or train. In the Red
River Valley Donnelly seems to come
nearer holding the Owen vote, and
in Kittsou, Marshall, Polk, Wil
kin and Clay the loss to the
new party seems to be found in both
the old party camps, but with Lawier a
little ahead. Lawler's plurality over
Nelson in Polk is 230, a train of nearly
100. In Marshall about 300 are gained",
and in Kittson about 200. In
Otter Tail and Grant Nelson has
profited slightly more than Lawler from
the "eclipse of the Satre." Lawler's
plurality in Ramsey exceeds tnat given
Nelsoii in Hennepin by about 500, and
Lawler gains over 800 in St. Louis.
There are losses in several First district
counties, because that was Judire Wil
son's old home, but there are handsome
gains in the Second and Third.
On the basis of the returns so far re
ceived Mr. Nelson will not carry the
state by over 5,000, and Lawler is by no
means impossible. In the. reports so far
received it must be considered that
every one of Nelson's home counties,
lope, Douglass and Grant, are in and
ha\e been counted.
The legislature is close and will not
be five either way.

Civcinnati, Nov. 10.— The Commer
cial Gazette, on carefully compared and
semi-official returns from eighty-one
counties In Ohio and conservative esti
mates on the other seven counties, esti
mates Cleveland's plurality in Ohio at
078. In some parts of Ohio Republican
scribes seem to have been figuring for
Hamilton county on Taylor's ra-lity
for secretary of state, whereas Taylor
ran 500 votes in round numbers ahead
of Harrison in Hamilton.
Sufl'cr a Relapse.
Coi.umhus, Nov. 10.— At 6p. m. the
situation in Ohio is that the official
count alone can decide the result.
The Republicans suffered 8 relapse
this afternoon by discovering a
mistake of 1,000 in their footings.
This reduced the supposed Republican
plurality of 1,700. These figures are on
S. M. Taylor, the head of the . state
ticket, and, as lie runs ahead of
the Harrison electors slightly,
the indications are that the
Cleveland electors, will be chosen. S.
M. Taylor's nominal plurality of 700 at
this writing is likely to be cut ou ac
count of a discrepancy of 500 in the re
turns from Hamilton county. The vn T
official returns show that he ran 500
ahead of the Harrison electors there,
which does not seem probable.. ________
All the counties in the state except
four have been heard from, ana there
can be no great change. The Demo
crats are claiming the election of. the
Cleveland electors by 500 plurality, but
think the official count aione can decide
the results on state ticket.
Getting Very Close.
At the Republican headquarters at
midnight official returns of the head of
the ticket had been received from
fifty-four counties. and with
the others carefully estimated
showed a plurality of 1,440 for
Taylor, Rep., for secretary of state.
The gains on the official returns have
been gradual and steady for the Repub
licans. The chairman thinks these fig
ures will be about as nearly correct as
possible until the official canvass is
• At Democratic headquarters they
have been receiving additional inform
ation all day, and while they recognize
that the tide is aeainst them they do not
dispute the correctness of the Repub
lican figures. They authorized the
statement at 11 p. »n. that figures then
indicated a small Democratic plurality.
They said
"We think it proper to await the of
ficial count for final result. In justice
to our party friends and the public we
hope they will have confidence with us
to await the official count.
"The committee is claiming COO plur
ality. The Republican committee also
claim the selection of the presidential
electors, although Taylor. Republican,
runs a little ahead of Harrison.
Cleveland Undoubtedly Carries
the Golden State.
San Francisco, Cal., Nov. State
returns still come very slowly and in
dicate that the presidential vote will
have a narrow margin either way. Six
teen hundred precincts give Harrison
101,727, Cleveland 104,201, Weaver 18,
--933. Five hundred and niuety-niue
precincts are still to be heard
from, mainly, from country and
mountain districts. Later re
turns on congressional candidates
do not change former estimate of three
Republicans, three Democrats and one
fusion of Democrats aud-People's party.
Elert, the non-partisan candidate for
mayor of San Francisco, is leading the
six other candidates on unofficial re
turns. Two proposed amendmeuts to
the state constitution, providing for the
election of United States senator by a
direct vote of the people and an educa
tional qualification for voters, appear to
have been carried overwhelmingly. The
legislature is still in doubt.
Sufficient returns have been received
from California to show that Cleveland
has carried the state by at least 3,ooo plu
rality. Returus are in from nearly three
fourths of the precincts in the state,
and those give Cleveland a plurality of
230. Nineteen counties, from which less
than half the returns have been re
ceived, gave Cleveland a plurality of
nearly 500 in 1888. The chairman of
the Democratic state committee claims
that Cleveland's plurality will be 4,200.
The Republican committee admits that
the sta}e has gone for Cleveland.
; The congressional contest is still in
doubt. Three Democrats and a fusiouist
(Democrat and People's party), are
elected, and probably three Republic
ans. The Republican committee admits
that the Democrats will have a majority
of one or two ou joint ballot in the legis
lature. The Democrats claim a major

Madison, Wis., 10.— It is an ab
solute impossibility; to yet give the def- 1
mite results of the election in this state. '
The counting has not , only been slow
to : an unparalleled extent, owing to
the size of the., ticket, but very
nrany precincts are remote from rail
way or telegraph stations. Even in this :
populous portion the full returns are
not in. A portion have not yet come
lrom the counties of Burnett, Manitou,
Oconto and Oneida . and from many
others the reports are unreliable. While
the the latest information some
what reduces the plurality of
Peck, (Dem.) for governor, it clear
ly exceeds 5,000 and Cleveland will
run 2,000 better than he did. Peck's plu
rality will be the smallest of any Dem
ocratic candidate on the state ticket.
State Treasurer Hunher and Secretary
of State Cunningham ran the best, as
they also did two years ago.
The Democrats have elected 11 sen
ators and the Republicans 4. The Re-,
publicans have but 2 hold-overs and the
Democrats 10. The senate has 21 Dem :
ocrats and six Republicans. One dis
trict is in doubt still, and is not in
cluded in the above compilation. In
the assembly there will be 54"
or 55 Democrats and 45 or 46
Republicans, one district being in
doubt. The Democrats will have a ma
jority on joint ballot of twenty-nine,
thus insuring the election of a Demo
cratic United States senator in place of
Philetus Sawyer. Late returns do not
change the congressional situation.
Cleveland's Plurality in the State
, -_•' Will Be 20,000. '
Chicago, Nov. 10.— Six hundred and
ninety-three voting precincts in a total
of 710 outside of Cook county give Har
rison 139,303; Cleveland, 127,507. The
vote on governor is very close to
these figures, Altgeld running a
little behind Cleveland and Fifer
ahead of Harrison. Cook county
has given Cleveland a plurality of 32,000
and Altgeld one of 30,000. The remaiu
mg precincts cannot alter the result,
and it is safe to say that Cleveland has
the state by 20,000 and Altgeld by 17,00.0
Tne Republicans in this county have
plucked a brand from the burning bush
by the defeat of Van Praag for the state
legislature. That and the victory of
Aldrich iv the First congressional dis
trict are all they have to content them.

majorities given. They are as
follows: Weaver.3o,449; Harrison, 4s7.

' The legislature so far as heard from
is estimated as follows: Senate, Popu
lists and Democrats, 12; Republicans,
11. Of the hold-over senators 6 are
Democrats, 5 Republicans and 1 Peo

Swapping Greatly Reduces Cleve
;v; land's Mammoth Majority. ■
•v Austin, Tex., Nov. 10.— Cleveland's

years ago. There has been much swap
ping because of local and state elec
tions, and the Hogg men have
scratched Cleveland extensively.
.The ..-.Populist ■ ticket ■ has devel
oped unexpected strength all over
the state. Speculation is rife here that
Hogg, if the legislature is with him.
will go to the United States senate in
place of Roger Q. Mills. Mills has
alienated the ; Clark nren by deserting
for Hogg, but has not .won over Hogg
supporters - because he left the state

Labor Inspector* Capture Thirty
Belgian Glass Blowers Who
Were Under Contract.
They Were to Take Strikers'
Places in a Pittsburg Glass
New York, Nov. 10.— The Ellis isl
and officials today made an important
detection of a crowd of contract labor
ers who were coming to this country to
take the places of strikers at Pittsburg.
Several days ago Contract Labor In
spector R. D. Layden, of Pitt6burg,
telegraphed to the contract labor bureau
that half a dozen Belgian glass blowers
had left Antwerp Oct. 20 for this port,
under contract to work at a glass-blow
ing establishment at Pittsburg. The
men had been engaged to take the
place of strikers and work for less pay.
The steamship Frlesland arrived from
Antwerp Wednesday, and it was re
ported that there were no steerage pas
sengers on board the vessel. The labor
inspectors found Francis Videl, a
former foreman In the Pittsburg gas
works, with the fiyo contract workmen,
in the second cabin. Afterwards labor
inspectors discovered twenty-four more
glass blowers under contract among the
Second cabin passengers on the Fries
land. Today the men were taken to
Ellis island and accused of coming here
in violation of the alien contract laws.
i They were placed in detention. The
I capture of the thirty glass blowers is
considered the most important that has
been made in a long time. If a good
case is made out against the owner of
the glass-blowing factory he will be
