Philadelphia, Nov. 9. —Pennsylvania
has been carried by the Republicans by
a plurality not much short of 100,000.
Returne have come in slowly from
the city and state, but State Chairman
John P. Elkin claimed early this morn
ing that enough had been received to

At the Democratic state headquart rs
the election of the Republican state
ticket was conceded, but no figures are
given out.
The Republicans will have a large
majority in the state legislature, and
Senator Quay will doubtless be his own

Philadelphia, Nov. 9.—Legislative re
turns from the state thus far show
Democratic and fusion net gains of 13
in the assembly. Districts not yet
heard from will probably elect 10 or 15
Democrats to seats now held by Re
publicans. The Quay leaders claim that
a majority of the Republicans elected
will favor the re-election of the sen-

Providence, >}ov. 9.—The voting has
been light throughout the state, as the
election of both Republican candidates
for congress was a foregone conclusion.
The revised constitution has probably
been rejected. The country districts
voted against it. and unless the vote In
the cities proves larger than expected

New Haven, Nov. 9.—Tlie result or
the election in this state shows a gen
eral victory for the Republican ticket.
The majorities of the candidates on the
state ticket will average fully 15,000,
with some changes likely when remote
districts are officially heard from. The
vote shows a falling off of about 5,000
from that cast at the election of two
years ago. The Republican candidates
appear to have suffered most from the
general decrease in the vote, but no par
ticular disaffection can be said to be
shown by the general result. The only
real contest was In the Second district,
where Congressman N. D. Sperry, the
Republican nominee, and James H.
"W ebb (Dem.l were the opposing candi
dates. Webb succeeded in cutting Sper

a safe majority. The returns Indicate
that the Republicans will have a ma
jority of at least 50 in the general as
The returns also Indicate that the Re
publicans have elected their candidates
for sheriff In each of the eight coun
ties. The fine weather which prevailed
yesterday brought out an unusually
large vote for a state election, and at
some places in the state the vote Is not
falling far behind that of two years

St. Paul, Nov. 9. At midnight the
Democratic state committee claimed the
election of Bind for governor, but would
give no figures. The Globe (Dem.)
claimed that he was elected by 10,000.
The Republicans simply say that the
result is still in doubt and that the re
turns are too meager to decide the re
sult. They also claim all the congress
men, although the Democrats are posi
tive they have the Seventh district and
possibly two others.

Columbus, 0., Nov. 9.—Returns indi
cate that the Republican plurality on
the state ticket will exceed the plurali

in 1896 and probably double the plural
ty of 28,105 Jor Bushnell for governor
last year, 'rnc Republicans elect 15 of
the 21 congressmen and four districts
are carried by the Democrats. Two dis
tricts, the Third and Twelfth, are in
doubt. The present delegation in con
gress is 15 to 8.

Chicago, Nov. 9.—The indications are
that the Republicans have elected their
entire state ticket, but the figures are
coming in slowly from outside Chicago
and nothing could be estimated with
accuracy. The Democrats in many
counties have shown gains over the
vote of 1896, and they have apparently
secured several congressmen in Cook
county and some outside of it.
New Hampshire Elects Rollins.
Concord, Nov. 9.—Senator Jacob H.
Gallinger, chairman of the Republican
state committee, Issued this statement:
"The indications show the election of
Rollins for governor by from 8,000 to

In Detuil by Counties.
New York, Nov. 9. —Theodore Roose
velt (Rep.), late colonel of the First
United States volunteer cavalry, has
been elected governor of this state by
a plurality anywhere from 25,000 to 30,-
000. All Colonel Roosevelt's associates
on the Republican state ticket are
probably elected with him. The returns
both from Greater New York and from
the counties outside of this municipali
ty are incomplete, but enough have
been received to Indicate a heavy fall
ing off in the vote up the state, while
that in the city was well sustained.
The consequence Is a falling off in the
Republican plurality in the state from
212,000 to the approximated figures giv
en above. Outside of Greater New York
the vote of Van Wyck is only aoout
one-fifth of 1 per cent above that of
1896. There appears to be a loss of four
Republican congressmen in the Brook
lyn districts—the Second, Fourth, Fifth
and Sixth—and it is probable that Con
gressman Quigg, who had a majority of
about 9,000 at the election last year,
has been defeated by William Astor
Chanler. In the Albany district—the
Twentieth—Glynn (Dem.) has been
elected to succeed Southwick (Rep.).
Congressman Sulzer (Dem.), whose
district renominated him upon a free
silver platform, is undoubtedly re
The returns from many counties up
the state were incomplete up to an ear
ly hour this morning, and in some cases
missing altogether. The indications,
being computations upon the figures at
hand, point to a Republican plurality
in the counties above the Harlem of
about 100,000, to offset which the Dem
ocrats can produce only the 80,000 plu
rality of Greater New York.
The soldier vote will not be counted
until Dec. 1, but it is not likely that the
ballots from the camps will materially
alter the result. There would seem to
be the greater probability that the ma
jority for Roosevelt will be increased.
The Republicans had in the lna/t leg
islature a majority of 28 on joint bal
lot, and lenders of the party assert that
there will be no material diminution of
that majority. A Republican legisla
ture will mean the election of a Repub
lican to the United States senate in
place of Senator Murphy.
Every condition was favorable to the
polling of a full vote in all parts of the
state. In this city there was no fulfill
ment of predictions of trouble at the
polls. The state deputies authorized by
act of the last legislature were most In
evidence In the east side districts, where
the cheap lodging houses are located.
The number of arrests made was below
rather than beyond the usual record of
a general election, and In many cases
the occasion was found to be In the
carelessness of registration clerks.
Fights at the polls were few and easily
quelled. There was no friction between
deputies and police, one lending assist
ance to the other in the preservation of
On the streets down town there were
the usual election night noises and
scenes. Retu-ns were displayed in front
of the newspaper ollces and in numer
ous public places. Democrats good na
turedly accepted the fact of the defeat
of their state ticket, which was appar
ent from the returns displayed early in
the evening, and found what compen
sation they could in the result in the
Democratic Congressman Chosen.
Pottsvtlle, Nov. 9.—Returns indicate
that Charles N. Brumm (Rep.) Is de
feated for re-election in the Thirteenth
district by James W. Ryan by about

Washington, Nov. 9. —Chairman Bab
cock of the Republican congressional
committee has just made the following
"While I am satisfied that the Repub
licans will control the house of repre
sentatives in the Fifty-sixth congress,
It is impossible at this hour to indicate
what our majority in the house will be.
Thus far we have no definite returns
from Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota,
lowa or Kansas. Ohio has elected 15
Republicans certainly, and two districts
seem to be in doubt. From Michigan the
returns indicate a solid Republican dele
gation. Representative Hawley is re
elected in Texas. Vincent lloering Is
elected in the Eleventh Kentucky dis
trict. S. J. Hugh is probably elected in
the Ninth Kentucky. The aleotion of
George M. Davison in the Eighth Ken
tucky is in doubt, with chances seem
ingly in favor of his election. A dispatch
from Maryland shows that we have
elected four representatives certainly.
Nineteen members of the delegation
from New York state and perhaps more
will be Republicans. I. F. Fischer of the
Fourth New York district, Brooklyn, Is
the only member we have elected In
Greater New York. The election of
Cochran in the Nineteenth New York
and of Mahany in the Thirty-second
(Buffalo) district is In doubt. From
Pennsylvania we have thus far received
meager returns, but the indications are
that we have sustained some losses
there. Kirkpatrick of the Eighth dis
trict and Arnold of the Thirty-eighth
seem to he defeated. Unofficial advices
from western states show that we have
more than held our own, and. my con
viction is that we shall control the
house by a safe majority, probably not
far from the figures which I gave out
last week."
The figures referred to by Mr. Bab
cock were contained In his predictions
that the Republicans would have a ma
jority over all of about 25.
Since early last evening Secretary
Kerr of the Democratic congressional
committee and a small corps of politic
al statisticians have been working on
returns received at Democratic congres
sional headquarters. Secretary Kerr
