The victory is a most decisive one for the
Democrats, not alone for the time hciui;.
hut for the future. For years at least one
branch of the legislature has lieen liepulc
lican, no maLter how the state went on the
general ticket. Kven in cases wherein
Democratic state candidate had won by
majorities ranijinn froiuO.uiKitotiiyWiO, the
Itcpublicaus have frequently captured the
legislature. Now, however, the Ih-miM-rats
have both brunches of the legislature, with
" Koswell Flower for governor, and they
openly express their intention of reilis
tricting the state to their own advantage.
They want not only justice but revenue.
THE BOARD DOES ITS WORK.
Ieane lleclared Defeated anil Sherwood
The state board of canvassers met in the
office of the secretary of state a few min
utes before 9 o'clock last evening. They
waited until as late iu the day as they
could, but no other returns from Dutchess
county appeared than the Alyhsl return,
which the court of appeals held was valid
and could lie supplanted only by u new re
turn. 'omich return appeared, and the
lHiard, under the decision of the court of
apieals and the mandatory provisions of
the election law, was compelled to go on
at once with the returns before it. The
Dutchess district was first, taken up
and Osborne, the Democrat, declared elect
oil by the returns us sent to the twianl.
Itepuhlleiin and IlemmTHt Seated.
The result iu the Troy district was de
clared: Derby, Republican, l'.'.l 1'J; Collins,
Democrat, 18,4N. The board voted unani
mously to tt'iw the certificate to Mr. Derby.
In the Syracuse district, following the de
rision and opinion of the court of appeals,
tlie vole was announced: Nichols, Demo
crat, IH.si-:; Peck, Republican, ViSm. The
decision nf the court of appeals directed
the deduction of 1.2SS fraudulent and ille
r:v1 votes from 1'cek's vote as originally
made up, and the final iiiinoiiiicenient was
in conformity to the decision of the court.
The lmurd unanimously resolved to give
the certificate to John A. Nichols.
Tweiity-Hevetith Sent to the Senate.
"When it came, to the Twenty-seventh,
the Steuben district, Stat Treasurer Dau
forth offered a resolution declaring that as
tlie court bud declared Sherwood (ineligible
(owing to tlie fact that he held the oflice of
park commissioner at the time he was
leEfid), Snd as there was no return before
the loard showing the election of any
other man, the senate shall determine the
case lor itself. The resolution was adopt

out orders from Washington.
Carza ot To He Sneezed At.
Curza's proHised invasion now excites
lss ridicule than it did inSeptemlier.wht n
first promulgated. He has siiowu himstlf
a capable lender, ami while avoiding pur
suers ou both sides of tile river he has in
creased the number of his forces to such an
extent as to excite alarm on Is it h sides of
the river. Captain J. C. Itourke is author
ity for the statement that every Mexican
ou the American side ia a supporter of
(area's cause, and the masses of northern
Mexico are similarly inclined. A private
telegram from Monterey says it is beJievtd,
that (iurau has a very strong secret follow
ing in that city who have made every pn p
arai ion to join their leader at a moment's
l&ecrultlng an American Soil.
The fact that Carza continues to recruit
followers from tlie American side increases
the resHnsihility of the Americans forpcr
nuttiug violations of the neutrality law,
and American oflicials concerned immedi
ately are much exercised. There arc but
three sists on the liorder Fort Mcintosh,
near ltnslo: Fort Ringgold, I'M miles
south, and Fort Drown, near Hmwnsville.
These are but slightly garrisoned. While
the f client I troops on tlie border have lieen
re-enforced by Texas rangers, the frontier
is of sin h a bushy character that it is stiil
very inadequately protected to prevent the
operations of Caret's men.
The t'hler ltandit on Texas Soil.
It whs learned from Rio Cramle City
yi-sterday that Oar.a himself is still on
Texas soil. Authentic information has
Im'cii received thai Caiza amr his men are
Wing protected and sheltered by Mexican
ranchers seven miles north of Roma. Tex.
Ignacio Kanioircz is his recruiting ollicer,
and is enlisting men for Cura .daily at a
ranch near t'asa li'auco. A great many
names have been secured, and warrants
wil! be issued immediately for their ar
rest. The fact that Curza's men attacked
I fisleral troops will hinder revolutionists on
Ibis side, as every mile of the river wid
soon lie protect tl.
. A arrants tint for His Men.
At Rio (irande City warrants have 1-ecn
ordered issued against liaiza's men for the
killing of Corpoi.J Kdstn.tii the 2d iust.,
and several suspic ious i h.tracters have lict n
put in jail. Cara's bands atv so lstdly
scattered and this side of the river is so
carefully guarded that it ui'l be impossi
ble tor him to cross any laive liojy into
MeNieu. us has been his intention. His
men can now cross only in small numbe is
and reiidczvoiir. ou the other side.
