GOT THE WILY SAGE, This Is Just What the Men Who Voted for Owen Did. Connelly's Vote Is Only a Trifle Over the 40,000 Mark. Judges Buck and Canty Win by Majorities of Nearly 30,000. The Republicans Secure the Legislature by a Nar row Margin. Ignatius Donnelly's total vote last Tuesday foots up a trifle over 40.000. This is 18,000 less than the vote polled by S. M. Owen in 1890, and shows in a convincing manner that the Sage of Nininger does not possess the strength with the people that even his opponents credited him with. His failure to poll the Owen vote of 18'.K) made the election of Knute Nelson certain. There is every reaspn to believe that had Mr. Owen been the nominee of the July convention he would have received at least 70,000 votes; (50.000 would have been the lowest possible figure. But Donnelly had control of the inde pendent forces and he so handled them as to render the Republicans the great est possible service. This may not have been intentional on the Sage's part, for his inordinate vanity undoubtedly led him to believe that he had a chance to win. But, while Mr. Donnelly does not seem to be aware of the fact, the peo ple of Minnesota are very tired of Don nelly and Donnellyism in politics. Don nelly, the amiable and witty lecturer and man of letters they admire. Donnelly's candidacy was the one thing that saved the Republicans in the campaign, Had another man been named by the People's party, or had no nomination been made, nothing could have saved Nelson. And the so-called Scandinavian vote did not save Mr. Nelson. In the coun ties containing the honest Scandinavian population, Mr. kelson received but few more votes than did Gov. Merriam two years auo. This is a fact so plainly shown by the returns from Marshall, Clay, Otter Tail, Swift, Becker, Polk; and other counties that any one wlio will glance at the returns can see it. in this campaign the Norwegians of Min nesota have shown- conclusively that they cannot be deluded by an appeal to national pride. Mr. Nelson was elected by the votes of men who refused to vote for Ignatius Donnelly. They are of all nationalities and creeds; and this refusal sent enough of them back to the Republican party to give him his paltry 12,000 plurality. To Donnelly and Donnelly alone does Mr. Nelson owe his election. _ Returns from several., close districts leave -no. doubt as to the complexion of the lower house of the legislature that will meet in this city in January. The Republicans will have a majority of four and possibly eight in the lower house, thus giving them control on joint bal lot. A United States senatorship will be at their disposal, and the least that the party can do is to bestow it on Ignatius Donnelly in recognition of his great services to the Republican ma chine. Any other disposal of this great honor will be the basest ingrati tude. Were the Democrats as liyuo criiical as their Republican brethren they could say at the present time that they are delighted over the situation because the Republicans will be en tirely and solely responsible for the do ing and misdoings of the coming legis lature. But "the Democrats will not say this because they regret that an advocate of McKin leyism should be sent to _tlie United States senate, there to misrepresent the people of the state for six years. But the Republicans have lost the supreme court. While complete re turns on the supreme court judsres have been received from only twenty-three out of the eighty counties, enough is known* to assure the defeat of Judges Vaiiderbursrh and Dickinson by ma jorities that will exceed 20,000 in each case. In twenty-one counties, includ ing Ramsey and Hennepin, Judges Buck and Canty are 0,000 ahead. Neither Polk, Otter Tail, Winona, Wa basha. Carver, McLeod, Steams, Clay, or many more of the counties in which Judges' Buck and Canty are strongest have been heard from, ami so their ma jorities can hardly be estimated. As will be seen from the returns from these twenty-three Judges Buck and Canty are everywhere receiving the solid vote of two parties, as well as many Repub lican votes. Judge Buck will certainly have 25,000 more votes than Judge" Dick inson, and Judge Canty will have that many more than Judge Yanderburgb.

Dixon had the advantage of the first two rounds, the "Bud" doing little offensive work, lie got in a good right-hand punch on Dixon's heart in the second round, however, and sent the colored boy to the ground.

He gave as much punishment as he received, and the lighting was hot all over the ring.

The Buckeye Tangle Still Bothering the Party Leaders. It Will Require an Official Count to Decide the Question. Each Side Concedes the Other One of the Electoral Votes. Harrison Saves Nebraska, but the Legislature Is Anti- Republican. Columbus, 0., Nov. 12.-The Ohio tangle is in as complicated a condition as ever. Both sides claim the state, in cluding the electoral vote and state officers, but each side concedes one elec toral vote to the other. One thing is now apparent. It will require the official count to decide, and in this the Repub licans have the advantage, if any is to be gained therefrom. The publicans claim tiie secretary of state by 1,055, and the election of twenty-two out of twenty-three electors by 957. The Dem ocrats give out no ligures today, but they still adhere to the statement made at midnight that their secretary of state and twenty-two electors out of twenty ' three are chosen for Cleveland. The Republican state committee re ceived the returns from Hamilton coun ty at midnight. It shows a gain over estimates for Taylor. Republican, tor secretary of state of 79, and makes his plurality in the state 1,054. The plurality of the Republican elect ors is 872, with the excep tion of Seward, who heads the Democratic electors. The official re turns from twenty-one counties at the office of the secretary or state show that he has run ahead nearly 500 votes, due to Democratic blunders in voting, and the same facts are true of Danfonl, who heads the Republican electors. The Republican gain in the twenty-one counties over estimates and unofficial reports is 32. . NEBRASKA. Republicans Carry Everything but the Legislature. Omaha, Nov. 12. —Seven counties of Nebraska have not yet been heard from in the way of election figures, but they are all border counties and cast light votes, and can in no wise change the iesulr. Harrison carries the state by about 3,800. while the Republican., state ticket is elected by pluralities, of . from 9.000 to 12.000. The legislature is anti- Republican on joint ballot-, ,.,.... . .■' WISCONSIN. Cleveland's Plurality Will -.Be Tzi?'C:\\: About 5,000. > ';,•-. Milwaukee, Nov. 12.— 1t is reported that the Democrats of this county will try to count out the Republicans elected to county offices by throwing out the soldiers' home vote. Some of the Dem ocratic leaders claim that the veterans at the home are non-residents, and that they should not vote. The Republicans elected have each engaged attorneys to defend their interests.' The returns from the sixty counties of the state are nearly complete. Tim Democratic plurality, with the vote es timated in a few counties, is about 3,000. Peck is about 500 votes ahead of Cleve land. Late returns make no change whatever in the congressional elec tion status. In the legislature the Democrats have a majority of thiity one on a joint ballot. '1 lie Democrats have twenty-six members of the senate, and the Republicans seven, while the Democrats elect fifty-six assemblymen, and the Republicans forty-four. CALIFORNIA. It Will Take the Official Count to Decide. San Francisco, Nov. 12.— Final com putation have been made upon the re turns from California on the presiden tial election. The official count next week will determine the result defi nitely. The -last returns are from all but 333 precincts in this city and state at large, and they give Harrison 109.715, Cleveland 105,529, Weaver 22, --816. Harrison's plurality 4,180. Thie plurality will probably not be changed materially by additional returns. \ There is no change in the congres sional contest. The Third district is the only one in which there is any doubt, and chances there are In favor of llilborn, Rep. The other six districts will return three Democrats, one fusion- j ist and two Republicans. The latest returns indicate that the Democrats will have 62 members in the legislature, giving them a majority of two on joint ballot. . ■ ■ - WASHINGTON. Nearly Complete Returns Give Everything to the Republicans. Tacoma, Nov. 12.— Nearly complete returns from all counties in the state give Harrison a plurality of 4,021. Mc- Graw, Rep,, for governor,' has a plural ity of 2,958. These figures may be increased slightly on later returns. Wilson and Doolittle, both Republican, are elected to congress by 2,500 plu rality. The entire Republican state ticket is elected, The Republicans control both branches of. the legislature and have a majority on joint ballot.. INDIANA. Returns Received From All but One County. Indianapolis, Nov. 12.—Semi-offi cial returns from all counties except one give the Cleveland electoral ticket a plurality of 8,303. The one county not yet reported is Crawford, which at the last election gave a Demo cratic plurality of 183. The complete returns will show the Democratic plu rality to be not far from 8,500. PENNSYLVANIA. ■ Harrison's Plurality Decreased 20,000 From 1888. Philadelphia, Nov. Official re turns - from all of , the sixty-seven counties of the state show a plurality for Harrison of 59,424, a decrease, com pared- with ISSB, of 20,034. The Pro hibitionists displayed about their usual! strength.: The Weaver vote was very : light and the socialist labor vote was ■polled in ; only a few. localities and amounts to only a few hundred through out the state. The new ballot law seems [ NO. 3 18. to have had the effect of keeping many away from the polls, since tin: weather conditions were favorable to a large vote. The total number ot ballots cast in 1888 for the Republican and Demo cratic candidates was i>72,72tj. whereas on Tuesday last only '.(04,514 were put into the boxes for the electors of thus© parties, a decrease of over 8,000.

They also concede that the Populists have a small majority in botn branches of the legislature and that a Populist will probably be elected to the United States senate to succeed Bishop W. Perkins. E. 11. Funston, Repub lican, has been elected to con gress in the Second district by a majority of less than 200. Already the Populist candidate. H. L. Moore, has begun taking testimony with a view to contesting Funston's election. He claims to have proof of the casting of 150 illegal votes in Wyan dotte county alone. IDAHO. The Electoral Vote Will Go to Weaver. Boise, Idaho, Nov. 12.— Returns from three-fourths of the counties of the state give Weaver electors a plurality of 2,000; McConnell, Rep., for governor, 1,100: Sweet, Rep., for congress, 2,000.
