NEW YORK, Nov. 8. After a remark
Able campaign, In which there was united
against him nearly all of the newspapers
and practically every minister of religion
In this city, George B. McClellan, son of
the civil war general, was today elected
third mayor of the greater New York over
Beth tow, fuslotiist, the present mayor,
by a plurality of about 70.0H0. Edward M.
Grout was elected comptroller, and Charles
V. Forties president of the board of alder
men. These two men were originally on
the fusion ticket, and were Indorsed by
Tammany, whereupon the fualonist. (took,
tbelr names from the Low ballots-and nom
inated other candidates. It was the nomi
nation of Grout and Fornes by Tammany
that caused Hugh McLaughlin, the veteran
leader of the Kings county democracy, to
bolt and declare that he would not support
men who were not democrats. In spite of
Ms defection, however, McClellan, Grout
and Fornes carried .Kings county. The
'management of their campaign there was
taken over by Stat. Senator Patrick H.
McCarren, when McLaughlin resigned: A
surprise was the low vote for -William 8.
Devery, former chief of police, who ran
on an. independent ticket, which was given
practically no support. This result shows
a tremendous change of public sentiment
since Mayor Low's election two years ago,
when he won by 81,632. At that time he
carried all the boroughs but Queens, his
plurality In Manhattan and the Bronx be
ing 6,668 and Brooklyn 25,767, and In Rich
mond 768. In Queens, Shepard, dem., had a
plurality of 606. Today McClellan carried
Manhattan and the Bronx by about 68.000,
a gain of 63,000; Brooklyn by about 6,000, a
gain of 8,000; aud Queens by about 6,000,
a gain of more than 4,000.
This makes a total net gain for McClel
lan of about 108,000. as compared with Bhep
ard's vote of two year ago. ,
Low carried only one borough Richmond
by about 200 votes. The result was known
early and at 8:15 Mayor Low sent a tele
gram of congratulation' to McClellan, as
follows: '
I congratulate you on your election. If
I can be or service o yon, rJ
me. tSigned.) - BK1H LOW.

COLUMBUS, O., Nov. 8. The republicans
broke their record In Ohio today tn plurali

son, dcm., by considerably over 100,000. The I
plurality on joint ballot of over 100 in the I
legislature for the re-election of Senator
Itanna more than triples any previous rec
ord. Senator Foraker has a record-break
ing majority of thirty-five on Joint ballot
for his re-election two years ago and that
for JIanna this year Is three times that
majority. Hanna sucoeeded John Sherman
In the senate March 6, 1897, by appoint
ment from Governor Bushnell and when
Hanna was elected for the unexpired Sher
man term and the full term of six years
ending March 5, 1906, he had only one ma
jority after the most bitter contest that
waa ever waged in an Ohio legislature.
Senator Hanna will have the distinction
of having the largest as well as the small
est majority of any senator elected from
On account of the vote on five consti
tutional amendments the counting was de
layed all over Ohio tonight and when re-
turns were received they could not be com- j
pared with those of any preceding state
election as the seventy-one municipalities
with 6.000 population or over had been re-
dlstiicted under a new municipal code that
wont Into effect this year and changed
the voting precincts In those reorganised
municipalities. Almost all the returns re
ceived were from th'e cities in which .the I
usual rate of gains or losses could not
be definitely determined, but most of them
made such republican gains over their vote
of last April, with which comparisons
could be made as to Indicate that the drift
was with the republicans In the towns
even greater than In the rural districts,
where the republicans were gaining a doxen
to the precinct over the vote of last year,
when the republicans had a plurality of
over 90,000. At the same time the repre
sentatives of the county men, so far r.s
heard from; Indicated that the republican
tidal wave had carried without the close
or doubtful districts and counties for state
senator and representatives so that the
republican majority on Joint ballot was
larger than ever before.
As early as 10 o'clock Interest slackened,
sji there was rt longer any doubt about
the result and the only question was as to
the site of the state plurality and the ma
jority on Joint ballot for senator. It is
said that the democrats who opposed John
son today will continue their organisation
to prevent him from controlling the next I

democrats, one with and the other without
the endorsement of the state committee for

feature of the election and led to a heavy
vote In that county. At 11:30 o'clock the

Carrying; of Braoklya for McClellan
Caased Great Astontehment
Hay Prove to Be Downfall
of McLaughlin.
NEW YORK, Nov. 8. The victory In
this city, great as It Is for McClellan, Is
of more significance to Mr. Murphy, who
made up the democratic ticket, and who
managed the campaign. Defeat today
would have meant for him deposition from
his post as leader, with all Its powers and
opportunties, and the accession to control
of another faction. Indeed, plans had been
made by certain Independent democrats,
based on the belief that Low would be re
elected, to reorganise the democracy of the
To Mr. McCarren, bIao, the result meant
much, for had Mr. McClellan lost, Mc
Laughlin would 'again have been In control,
and McCarren and his friends would have
had little to hope for. The carrying of
Brooklyn for McClellan caused astonish
ment, as It was believed the cry of "No
red lights In Brooklyn" would cause an
Increased vote for 1aw In that borough.
The campaign was one of the mont In
teresting In the history of New York.
From the day Mayor Low was renomi
nated his supporters urged his re-election,
on the ground that no partisan question
was Involved,' but that every man' should
vote to uphold the existing administration,
because It had given the city a business
like conduct of affairs, and because It had
done much to stamp out the "red light"
evil of the east side.
Bitter Fight on McClellan,
It was argued by fuslonlst orators that
the return of Tammany men to office
would mean a ' "wide open town," unre-
stricted lawlessness, and the renewed ter
rors of the infamous system by which ig
norant girls were forced Into lives 'of
shame, 'their earnings going to men whom
they supposed to be' their husbands. Mr.
McClellan wis attacked by the speakers
for the fuslonlsts becauBe they tilleged
he had sold the name of his honored
father to cloak the designs of evil men.
To these statements the democrats re
sponded with the charge that Low's non
partisan claims masked an attempt to ke
cure control of the city In the Interest of
Governor Odell; that all the credit for the
800a U8'" administration unaer ixw oe
longed to Grout, who waa on the demo
cratic ticket, and that every democrat
should cast his ballot for McClellan in view
of the important bearing this city's vote
would have on the presidential election next
Both candidates made nightly speeches.
Low's principal supporting orator was Dis
trict Attorney Jerome, who bitterly op
posed the mayor's , renominatlon on the
ground that he was unpopular, but who.

I majority of fully 15,000, seems assured. The
I republicans concede the election of Gover-
nor Beckham.
The day In Louisville -;ras an exciting one
and the election was bitterly fought. The
republican managers claim they have
proofs that In thirty-two precincts In this
c,tv the polling places In republican pre-
clnts were either kept closed all or a part
of the time or removed to obscure placer
They also charge ballot box stuffing, the
forcible ejection of republican officials and
I the Intimidation of negro voters by the
I policemen and firemen of the present demo-

These conditions led to many fights, the
most serious of which occurred between

and Jacob Krleger, a republican Officer.

As showing the relative strength ot th

ball elevens, local foot ball enthusiasts are
looking forward .with Interest to the game
between Crelghton and the Haskell In
dians In this city Saturday.
The Haskell Indians were defeated by
the score of 17 to 0 by the Comhuskers.
Crelghton has no hopes of a victory, but
the question Is how low can the score be
kept. The Haskells are a whirlwind In
both defense and offense and Crelghton
will have Its hands full. It Is expected
that Captain Callahan will be back In the
game and he will be able to direct the
team to the satisfaction of Its supporters.
As Crelghton will not play the University
of Nebraska, the game Saturday with the
Haskells will give local foot ball enthusl
asts some Idea of the relative strength of
the Crelghton team a. compared with the
university team.

DES MOINES, la., Nov. 8. (Special Tele

state of Iowa Indicate that Cummins, can
didate for governor on the republican state
ticket, was elected by about 60,01)0 majority
over Sullivan. Returns have come In
slower than usual, as not Over one-fourth
of the state was heard from tonight. Gov
ernor Cummins estimates his majority at
about the figures given, but the demo
crats, with fewer precincts hesrd from,
Insist that the republican majority Is not
above 40,000.
The returns from 400 precincts show that
th democratic) gain was about 13 to a
precinct, which would make the republican
estimate about right. In these precincts
Cummins gets 40.943 and Sullivan 88,046.
The Cummins vote Is about as It was two
years ago. but th democrats have polled
a fuller vote than before. Ther was much
scratching done, v
In the legislative districts the democrats
have poHHlhly made slight gains. They
had seventeen In the house last year, and
claim twenty-five this year, but the re
publicans do not concede over twenty.
Thomas Stapleton was elected senator
by democrats In the Iowa-Johnson district.

On 430 precincts In Iowa the Vote is:
Cummins, 62,561; Sullivan, 84,111, or a total
loss to Cummins of 4,205, which is loss than

DES MOINES, Nov. 8. (Special) Elec
tton day in Iowa waa a pleasant one and
generally favorable to a good vote. The
morning opened cloudy and" with threats
of rain, and th. night previous rain fell In
a large part of the state. As th. day
progressed the sun came out and reports
from nearly every part of the stat. in
dicated that the day wa. a good on for
yotlng. Th democrat had been hoping
for a wet and disagreeable day, claiming
that would be to their advantage, but
the day was more favorable to a full vote
and fair . expression , of opinion. Tha re
turns, however. Indicate that the vote was
not as full aa. expected and only in a few
counties jmum there, sufflniert -local. joit
merit to make th voter turn but. In many
counties of the state the falling oft in the
vote was marked.
.The returns . Indicate that the repub
licans have held their own pretty well and
their total vote will compare favorably
with that of two years ago, when they
cast 226,000 votes. The entire vote at that
time waa about 890,000. The vote last year
moved up about 6,000. This afternoon Gov
ernor Cummins estimated that his vote
would be about the same as two years
ago and that he would have about .'.0,000
plurality, which is the normal plurality of
the party In the state at this time. He
estimated that the democratic vote, be
cause of the personal popularity of the
candidate, and for other reasons, would
be at least 15,000 more than two year. ago.
Returns tonight Indicate that these figures 1
are not far from right.
In this city and county ther was no
local contest and the voting was dull end
Incomplete. A . great many republicans
bolted the ticket because of the all but
open bolt of a number of "stand-patters"
on the head of th. ticket and the deter
mination to cut down the Cummins ma
jority aa a personal affront to him. The
plurality on the state ticket will not reach
that of two years ago by at least 1.500
Returns are meager-and unsatisfactory be
cause of the lack of local Interest.
Congressman J. A. T. Hull and Governor
Cummin, walked to the polls together and
would have voted at the same time In the
same precinct but the congressman made
th discovery that he was not registered.
He had been too busy making speeches to
register and he had forgot that he lost
his vote last year by remaining In New
York tn charge ot the congressional cam
paign. DES MOINES, Nov. 8. Returns received
up to midnight Indicate the re-election of
Governor Cummins by a plurality of 60,000
and some of his associates on th. repub
lican ticket by substantial pluralities. At
democratic headquarters so large a plur
ality is not admitted. The legislature re
turns, although not complete. Indicate lit
tle change from two years ago, when the
house contained eighty-two republican, and
eighteen democrats, and thesenate forty

without giving figures, expressed a belief
that th democrats bad mad a gain over
two years ago, when Cummins was elected
by 88,000. and expressed satisfaction with
th. outcome of the campaign.
