New York, Nov. 6.—The Republi
cans have carried New York state by
estimated pluralities ranging from 130,
--000 to 150,000. These rigures represent
the probable plurality of Levi P. Mor
ton, Rep., for governor, over David B.
Hill. Dem., based upon the vote of New
Yoik city and Brooklyn complete and
returns from more than one-half of the
election districts above the Harlem
river. The total vote for the two lead
ing candidates is considerably in excess
of that polled for Fiower and Fassett
tor governor in ISDI, in addition to
which is the vote cast this year for
AY heeler. Ind. Dem., which wilt exceed
20,000. The tremendous Republican
sweep in the city and state, it is esti
mated, has elected twenty-three Repub
lican congressmen, a gain of eight over
the present representation in congress.
It was the expressed belief of those
conducting the campaign for the Demo
crats in the state that depreciated ma
jorities below the Harlem for the party
would be offset by increased majorities
above the river's banK for the Democ
racy. The most sanguine expected
that the Democratic party, with Sena
tor Hill at its head, would show recu
peration from the vote given for May -
nard iv IS'J3. In place of all anticipated
results comes a sweep of such propor

made by ihe Republicans.
From pluralities ranging from 85.000
to 1.25,000 in the district below the Har
lerii for the Democratic party, the Re
publican party turns the city vote into
20.000 plurality for its state candidates.
In all the Democratic estimates given
ou the eve of the election it was con
tended that the Democratic plurality
below the Harlem would be at least
85,000. The surprises are not confined
to this change of vote, but an analysis
Bbows that Senator Hill will run behind
even the vote of Maynarcl, while in the
state lie fell below the vote cast for
Gov. Flower in 1&91. An analysis of

The vote in Albany county was one of
the many surprises of the election. For
years Albany county, in state and na

a reliable Democratic stronghold, good
for from 1,000 to 2,000 Democratic ma
jority. The Democratic managers, in
view of this fact.and that it is the home

New York, Nov. o.—Tammany is de

usually polled by the organization in
New York city has been obliterated.and
an opposition non-partisan majority of
40,000 to 45,000 has been piled up, mak

which the revelations concerning the

This Is How the Advertiser Glories
in tho G. O. P. Victory.
Nkw Fork, Nov. o.—The Advertiser
will tomorrow say: The battle is ovt-r.
The enemy is routed. Republicanism
has triumphed. Protection will still
protect, and Tammany is overthrown.
The victory means that the great
American people have been aroused,
and liuve shown themselves worthy of
their glorious heritage. It means the
death beyond all possibility of resusci
tation of that purty which lor forty
years has never had power without
showing an increased capacity for
blundering and iucompeteTicy.
Finally, the victory means that from
the lakes to the gulf, and from the
Atlantic to the Pacific, we should give
thanks for the downfall of the Demo
cratic party and all it stands for, and
the triumph of protection, law, order,
trond government and all that makes for
the glory of the nation; the Democratic
party is indeed dead. "Praise God,
from whom all blessings flow."

Washington, Nov. 6. — Senator
Faulkner, the chairman of the Demo
cratic congressional committee, made
the following statement at midnight:
"Indications seem to point to a Re
publican victory in the congressional
contest. However, the information 1
have received does not justify me in
giving up the organization of the house
by the Democrat*, nor does my infor
mation justify me iv giving up the elec
tion of Mr. Wilsou. I have men at ev
ery doubtful point who will telegraph
as soon as the returns are made. I
have received no word from any
of them and am certain that the
counts have not been completed. We
have won in the Third aud Fourth
West Virginia districts, but the chair
man of the First district admits the
election of Doveruor (Rep.) by 1,500 to
1,700. That district has undergone the
most remarkable change ever kuown in
the politics of the country, due to a
great extent to the A. P. A., and
partly to manufacturing interests. It
is supposed that CumuQings is defeated
by 14 votes in New York city, but that
is not sure. 1 understand that our
friends in Michigan admit that the Re
publicans have carried tha state
and all but two members of con
gress. We have heard nothing au
thentic from Wisconsin. Taisney's
election in Missouri seems to be
in doubt. The A. P. A. has been
active against him. In the South I
know of no losses, but several gains, in
cluding the seat now held by Murray,
colored Republican, of South Carolina.
There seems to be no possibility of a
loss of more than one district of Vir
ginia. It the reports of the Associated
Press are correct it will bo impossible
for the Democrats to organize the house.
"The Republicans are claiming every
thing, but i pay very little attention to
their claims. We expect to receive tel
eerams from every Democratic district
for congress, and then will have some
thing definite upon which to make an
estimate." v
Senator Faulkner declined to express
an opinion of the causes which brought
about increased Republican majorities.
The Democratic headquarters were
deserted before midnight by all but the
clerks of the committee.

Aujaxv, N. V , Not. fl.—A very wet

the early rotor* at the polls today.
About 10 o'clock the sun came out.
There was evidently a disposition to
vote early. - - !
Iv was shortly after 9 o'clock when to
the upper district of the Ninth ward
there walked a well-built man, with
hands thrust dowu deep in his overcoat
pockets. As he stepped into the polling
place to net his ballots, several persons
made way for him, and one of the in
spectors said:
"Let Senator mil vote."
Then somebody proposed a cheer tor
"the rie^t 'governor-.", and -there was fl
hearty Hurrah, Souator Hill refused to
take anybody's place in the line aod
waited his turn, chatting pleasantly
meanwhile with those nearest him.

A Republican watcher was arretted

What the^ World Sees in the
New Yoisk, Nov. 7.—The World will
say today editorially: The result in
New York and throughout the country
was never more in the hands of the peo
ple than it is in America now. That
was the moral of the overwhelming
defeats sustained by the Harrison ad
ministration, and it is the lesson now.
when popular discontent with existing
adininistrations.local,state and national,
has shown itself so emphatically. The
Democratic party or the future will
be a fa- better party because of
the action of the Democrats who.
in behalf of party principle, arrayed
themselves yesterday against party
leaders who had betrayed or abandoned
principles. Every Democrat ca:i
leel gratified that regardless of
temporary considerations of party
the people, animated by the
Democratic instinct. have shown
themselves the governing power in the
country; that they have made it once
more apparent how much greater they
are than any great man or any number
of great men; than any autocrat, any
senate, any machine. The people are in
prwer, and they have shown it. Thai
is what it means.
It Crows Very liike a Young
New Yokk, Nov. 7.—The Press will
say today editorially: The Republican
party has won the most sweeping tri
umph since 1572. The elections of yes
terday secured to the Republicans con
trol ot the next bouse of rep
resentatives, and have brought nearer
the time when the Republicans will
ascain have a majority in the senate.
The Atlantic states -have given em
phatic majorities for Republican candi
dates,and the Empire state of New York
is once more in the Republican column
by a vote that shows that a political
revolution has taken place. Tue most
extraordinary and memorable triumph
along the line is the rescue of
the city of New York from Demo
crat Tammany rule. Yesterday New
York was shackled in fetters of shame
that held her in degrading subjection
in. the criminal conspiracy of Tam
many Hall. Today she stands erect and
emancipated, the premier member of
the grand Republican sisterhood of
states, no longer under the confederate
symbol of free trade and the black fiat
of Tammany, but ranked henceforth:
with those loyal commonwealths'-that
stand for 1 American » industrial ihde
pence in phalanx under the stars and
stripes. ' ;•

The Republicans have again carried
Minnesota: this time by a larger plural
ity man for several years past. As the
Globe predicted, the Populist move
ment had more wind than votes, and
through the inability of the Democratic
committee to make a vigorous and ag
gressive campaign tn every county
many Democrats seem to have gone
direct to Mr.Owen in certain parts of the
country, while in the cities of St. Paul
and Minneapolis a very large number
of Democrats were taken over to Gov.
Nelson. While it is yet too early to
give aoy definite figures, it seems like
ly that the vote of Gov. Nelson will
reach nearly 100,000. that of Mr. Hille
boe, the Prohibition candidate, at least
18,000, while the remaining 140,000 will
be divided pretty evenly between G»n.
Becker and S. M. Owen.
Auditor Biermann lias undoubtedly
made a great race in the counties, and
has drawn largely from the Populist
Candidate, Mr. Stromberg, es well as
from Mr, Dunn, and it will take the of
ficial returns to decide whether the
farming districts have elected him
or not. The remainder of the Dem
ocratic ticket has run at least 5.000
ahead ot Gen. liecker, and perhaps
more, showing conclusively, particu
larly in St. Paul, thac the Republican
campaign for Democratic votes for
Gov. Nelson succeeded admirably in
its purpose. These men, or many of
them, voted for Nelson and the Demo
cratic ticket below Gen. Becker.
The returns fiom all the congres
sional districts are meager, but there is
no doubt of the election of Congressman
Hall In the Third, Tawney in the First,
McCleary In the Second, Keifer in the
Fourth and Fletcher in the Fifth.
Probably Boen in the Seventh has
pulled through, as the Democratic vote
has gone to him nearly solidly. Mc-
Lean's vote will not exceed 2,500, or
about one-third of the number eiven
lion. W. F. Kelso two years ago. The
coutest iv the Sixth is close, with the
odds rather in favor of Towne, Rep.
The legislature will be ciose. Le-
Sueur, Sibley and Winona have been

With a Plurality That Stamps the
. Third as Keliably Democratic.
Congressman Hall has carried the
Third district by nearly the same
plurality he had two years ago. In the '
home of his opponent, North field, he
scored a gain of nearly 100, which will
reduce the plurality of Candidate iicat
wole to 300 in Rice county. The Dem
ocratic counties of the district have held
their own in splendid shape, and give
majorities tully up to those of 1892.

tney are elected by good majorities.
There is also an occasional Democrat
saved on the legislative ticket. The
encouragemeut given Populistsof prom
ises to vote for Owen proved disas*
trous to the county ticket.as they polled
a heavy vote all along the line. Nelsou,
for governor, carried the county by a
large majority. Gen. Becker is second,
with Owen a close third in this county.
Edward G. Rogers leads his ticket, and
is elected by over 2,000 votes over Air.
Van Slyke.
Hon. P. 11. Kelly, the veteran legis
lator, is elected !>y a good majority in
the .Second ward. Sehurmeier in the
Third ward, and George Gerlach iv
the Eighth ward. Hon. John 11. Ivea
is elected senator in the Twenty-seventh
district. Beyond these the complete
Republican legislative ticket is prob
ably elected, although it is close enough
between some of the senators and rep
resentatives to require the official count
to decide. The headquarters of the
Democratic and Republican county
committees were quiet all day, witb but
few callers daring the day.
The defeated Democrats gave up horn

The Scenes at the I>ulU

was a very quiet day all over the city.
There were no crowds at any of the

and after casting their votes went about
their work or business. But little gen
eral interest was manifested in the re

There were not the usual crowds about
the bulletin boards, and even the Re
publicans did not show an unusual
amount of enthusiasm. There were but
few workers about the polls. The day
was raw and cold and the streets were
quiet. Many of the places of business
were closed, and apparently the peo
ple either stayed at home or about
their places of work or business. The
saloons were closed. The general ap
pearance of the city was that of a more
than ordinaryly quiet Sunday. The Re
publicans for the most part voted their
ticket straight, with the exception of
governor. An Inspection of the vote by
precincts will show that some Republi
