State and Liberty Streets, Little Rock, Ark., Sept. 8. Carroll Armstrong, chairman of the Demo cratic state central committee, says the indications are that there were lOo.OOO votes cast in yesterday's elec tion. The combined vote of the oppo sition reached 50,000, giving a-majorlty of 65,000 for the Democratic ticket. The campaign was fought on finan cial lines, the Democrats standing for free silver, Republicans for the gold standard. This Is double the ma jority the Democrats received in the elections two and four years ago. REPOUTS LAST NIGHT. The city of Helena gives the Demo cratic ticket a large maJority,although Kcmmel (Rep.) for governor ran far ahead of the Republican ticket. In Lafayette county every Democrat is elected. Tlio Democratic majority in Franklin is from 700 to 800. The es timated Democratic majority in Mil ler county Is 800,although one county ofllceris in doubt. "Woodruff county is considered safe for the Democratic ticket. Many negroes scratched the ticket and voted for Jones for governor. Johnson county gives a large major ity for the Democratic ticket. Jack son county elects the entire Demo cratic local ticket and the county votes favorably on license. In Lonoke, the Democrats win easily- White county Is claimed for Jones by about 100. Sharp county goes Democratic by 17,000 majority. There were but two full tickets In the field, Democratic and Republican the Populists contenting themselves with a candidate for governor. Gen eral Jones and Mr. Remmel, the Re publican candidate made an active canvass of the state, but Files, the Populist nominee, made no speeches.

At most, these three candidates have re ceived not over 00,000. This would leave Jones with C-1,000 major ity over all. Over 13,000 more than it was claimed he would get prior to the election. Two years ago when Governor Clarke was elected 126,000 votes were polled. AN UNION FOR SILVER. Washington, Sept. 8. An address was Issued today from Populist head quarters.
