Returns from Wisconsin up to 10 o'clock, though comparatively few, show on their face, when compared with the vote of four years ago, that McKInley has carried the state by a large plurality, equal, if not exceeding the figures of HOC, which were 102.C12. Robert M. La Follette, the republican candidate for gorernor is running about equal with the presidential candidate and is likewise sure of carrying the state. While few returns hare been received from the congressional districts, these show the republican candi dates for congress to be running equal with McKInley and the Indications are that Wit cousin's delegation will be solidly repub lican MILWAUKEE, Nov. 6. ri'ty-one scat tered precincts In Wisconsin give McKInley, 6.73?; Bryan, 2,531; u net gain for McKIn ley of SOS.

Returns from Nebraska precinct outslds of Omaha and Douglas county are compar atively meager, yet indicate steady and substantial gains for McKInley and the republican ticket. The returns from 260 odd precincts outside ot Douglas county are 14,062 for McKInley and 12,799 for Bryan, being a majority for McKInley of L263 These same precincts in 1896 gave McKIn ley 11.242 and Bryan 12,437, or 11 majority for Bryan of 1.195. The change in these precincts, therefore, transforms a Bryan majority into a McKInley majority, repre senting a republican gain of 2,458 out of some 26.000 votes, or nearly 10 per cent. If this ratio of gains keep up throughout the state McKinley will secure the elec toral vote of Nebraska by a substantial majority. On governor, returns are now more In complete, but ro far as received point to Dietrich's election as the republican candi date, by a margin over Poynter, about the. same as on the presidential ticket. On tho other offices no definite flgurcR can be offered At 9:45 p. m. Chairman Lindsay of the republican state central committee tald: 'It is reasonably certain that McKlnlry hat carried Nebraska by from 6,000 to 7,000 plurality, and it may be larger. We have recehed reports from fllty-two precincts from the towns seatte-ed over the .atat" Mid theso gtvr WcKlnUy t.Vfli. Urjan liCLt, ae compared with McKinley 5,140 and Bryan 4,573 in 1896, a net republican gain of 471. This ratio of change, if kept up, will give Nebraska to McKInley. Returns on the state ticket are indefinite, and it looks as if the contest between Dietrich and Poynter will be very close. Both of these, nccordlng to meager reports thus far received, arc running behind tbelr tickets. Nothing has been received nt this hour on the rest of the state ticket or on congressional candi dates that would Juitlfy a prediction. Shortly after midnight Chairman Lindsay said: "Everything goes to indicate that we have elected our state ticket and that McKinley will carry the state by from 10,000 to 12,000. We have received reports up to this hour from 1SS precincts and they give McKinley 17.787 and Bryan 14,168 The same precincts In 1S96 gave McKinley I 15.027 and Bryan 14.671. a net republican gain of 3,263. This shows a change In favor of the republicans of more than twenty-three to a precinct and as there are approximately l.fcOO voting precincts In the state, 1 Indicates a good republican majority. K. porta on tho state ticket are still meager, yet they aro such as to indi cate the election of the entire date ticket. or course, only a scattering report has been received, but I am confident that it takes in such a wide range that it provides a safe and conservative basis for computu Hon as regard's the general result." Chairman P. L. Hall at 10 o'clock gave The Bee the following statement: "At present It looks like McKInley was elected, that he has carried New York, Ohio and Illinois, and that elects him. The returns from Nebraska are too meager to base an estimate upon, but Bryan will carry the stnte. From present returns .ie will receive from 5.000 to 10,000 majority." NEBRASKA'S. -1896- McK.

O.. Nov. C. The president In person read aloud eomo of the returns, but refrained from making any comment what ever on the result and accepting with un ruffled composure the favorable reports, which began to come in -at an early hour. Secretary Cortelyou read most of the dis patches, some of the more cheering an nouncements being heartily applauded by the guests. Most ot the early advices were fragmentary and inconclusive, but the strong Indications that New York and probably Illinois hod gone for McKIn ley were received with great satisfaction. At 9 o'clock the president received a dispatch from an enthusiastic individual stating that New YorK and Illinois cameo, the day for McKInley and that he was re elected. The responsible leaders made no early claims, however, although their dispatches told of gains at many points and breathed the spirit of victory near at hand. The president's first congra'ulatlons from headquarters came from J. H. Manley. at New York, as follows: "Praise God. from whom all blessings flow. Your triumphant re-election 1b con ceded by democratic managers. I tender my earnest congratulations. We are very happy at headquarters." Up to 11 o'clock the president gave no Intimation to those nearest to him as to his own convictions on the results, although It was the general view of those at the house that his re-election was assured be yond a doubt The advices from head quarters here have been uniformly lover ably. The announcement that Croker eon csded New York and Illinois to McKInley was greeted with applause.
