LINCOLN , Neb. , Nov. 10. Complete
returns from counties polling nine-
tenths of the vote of the state give
Holcomb a plurality of 13,584. These
same counties last year gave Poynter
a plurality of 2,115 and his total plur
ality in the state was 2,721. Allowing
for the same rate of gain in the re-
mainlng counties as Holcomb has
made in those reported his plurality
will not be very far from 15,000 either
way.
Additional returns from the Sixth
congressional district show that Ne
ville Is elected over Kinkaid , but they
are not sufficiently complete to give
n definite Idea of the size of the ma
jority. Neville claims that it will be
:5,000 : , though the republicans are not
willing to concede so much.

DEMOCRATIC CLAIMS IN OHIO.
It Is That Their Lieutenant Governor
nan Ileen Elected.
COLUMBUS , O. , Nov. 10. A Hurry
was created In political circles today
by the claims of the democratic state
committee that Patrick ( dem. ) had
been elected lieutenant governor over
Caldwell ( rep. ) . The returns show
that Caldwell had been cut heavily as
the result of the flght made against
him by the Anti-Saloon league , but
the-republican committee had not glv- '
en the matter any serious attention.
Today , however , county chairmen
were asked for the vote on lieutenant
governor. Last night returns had been
received from seventy counties , which
gave Caldwell a plurality of 8,278. The
remaining counties gave Nash a plu
rality of 12,166 , and as they are strong
ly republican Chairman Dick claims
the election of Caldwell with the great
est confidence. It is claimed Cald-
well's plurality over Patrick will not
be less than 5,000. Revised figures on
the head of the ticket show that Nash's
plurality is 50,512.

SIOUX CITY , la. , Nov. 10. Ex-Gov
ernor Altgeld of Illinois spent yester
day in Sioux City and last night lec
tured at the opera house under the
auspices of the local Trades and Labor
assembly. Mr. Altgeld was asked to
express an opinion on the recent elec
tions. He caid of course it is to be un
derstood hs Is more than pleased with
the showing of the fusionists In Ne-
Ltaslca. So fr.r aa South Dakota is
concerned he expresses no apprehen
sion as to the situation with his party
in that state , even though It has gone
republican this time. Mr. Altgeld says
the fact that the republicans got a
majority at all Is because the demo
crats and populists did not go to the
polls. He says the voting was done
by the icpublicans in the towns and
cities and the followers of Bryan in the
rural districts did not take enough in
terest in the election to go to the
polls.

which he denies that he had said ,
"If my race has In any way contrib
uted to the success of John R. Mc
Lean and a rebuke to the Infamous
policy of the administration , I feel
it has not been in vain. " Mayor Jones
then says of imperialism :
"I believe the non-partisan vote of
Ohio may be recorded as favoring a
Christian policy toward the Philip
pines. Personally , 1 believe the Filipinos
pines have a right to be free as well
as the Americans , and I have frankly
said so whenever the question was
raised , but r have no thought whatever
of trying to represent any other man
as believing as 1 do. I want all men
to be free to speak for themselves. "

recent date transmitting sample of
coal found In Dakota county , request
ing analysis of same , I herewith hand
you copy of analysis , together with

the quality may Improve as depth is
gained on the drift. This can only be
ascertained by further development of
the vein In question. Yours very T .
