Philadelphia, Nov. 7. Heturns from
tho senatorial and legislative districts
of Pennsylvania indicate that M. S.
Quay will not have less than 145 votes
on joint ballot for United States sena
tor, or seventeen more than the num
ber necessary to elect. Of the '204
membjrs of the house the Democrats
have elected less than fifty, as against
seventy-ono straight-out Democrats
two years ago.
The anti-Quay ltepubllcans will
probably not muster over fifty votes
of the 234 on joint ballot.
Governor Stone's Opinion.
Tlatrlsburg, Nov. 7. Governor Stone
said tonight that the result of chc
election in Pennsylvania on the legis
lative tlclcei is, as ever should be, a
triumph regularity over irregularity.
The verdict of the people is that Sen
ator Quay having received a majority
of the Itepubllcan votes in both houses
of the last legislature he should have
been elected by that body and that
he will be elected by the next.
"Thus is settled In a sulrited con
test." the governor continued. tho
right of tho majority to rule, and I
hope settled forever. It will result in
a harmonious unification of ail the Ke-
publlrans if Pennsylvania. It is not
a compromise nor a concession, but :
complete victory for thoc who upheld
the will of the majority. It is a great
vindication for Senator Quay. Ho has
made his light openly and manfully.
Ho has met very issue squarely and
the people have given them their ver
dict. Further attempts to defeat his
election am not only futile but fool
ish. "When the legislature convenes
all who claim to be ltepubllcans should
go into the caucus and abide by the
result. The caucus will renominate
Senator Quay and lie will bo triumph
"Tho people have spoken and there is
no appeal from their declaration. Tho
house and senate will be organized by
those who have upheld the proposition
that the majority should rule. Tho
people have given a vote of confidence
to what is known in the politics of the
state as th organization. It remains
for tho organization by wisdom, care,
caution and conservatism to justify
the confidence of the people. There
should be no harsh or vindictive de
sire for punishment or revenge. The
legislature should perform tho duties
for which It will convene, adjourn
