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.
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
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.
Additional returns received up to
noon Indicate that Colonel Dan. "W.
Jones and the remainder of the Demo
cratic state ticket won by 05,uoo or
70,000. This beats all former records
in Arkansas. Estimated that 180,000
yo's were polled. It is generally con
ceded that Reramet, Republican, will
have about 40,000. Files, Populist.
45,000, Miller, Prohibition 2,000. 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.

party to turn down the Cleveland ad
ministration and adopt the principles
of the People's party and as the ac
tion of the Democratic party in future
is uncertain, all citizens who believe
in the government, as administered
by Jefferson, Jackson and Llncoln.are
urged to upbuild and strengthen the
People's party. Th address closes
with an appeal for a contribution, of
one dollar, to the campaign fund from
every individual able and willing to
contribute. i
