suspected. The stranger loft during the
night without paying his bill.

Washington, Nov. 7. The loss of
Kansas, New Jersey and South Carolina
reduces the present democratic total in
the senate from )! to 41. The present
republican strength in tho senate f 38
promises to bo increased by senators
from New Jersey, Kansas, Montana,
Washington and Wyoming, the last three
being vacancies. The republicans are
likely to lose Nebraska. This makes a
gain of five and a loss of one, or a net
gain of four, raising the republican total
to 42. The populists now have three
senators. The returns indicate for them
in South Curolina and Nebraska, making
their total five. Senators Jones and
Stewart, of Nevada, have of luteatliliuted
with the populists, so the populist
strength may be increased and the re
publicans decreased by two. An esti
mate of the next senate by Chairman
Ilabcock gives the republicans 44 out of
88 senators. He counts upon PefTer's co
operation to organize.
The Next Heuute.
W amiington', Nov. 7. Chairman llab

committee, claims the republicans will
organize the next 1'nited States senate.
II is information is that the Tennessee
legislature will send a republican to suc
ceed Harris. Ilabcock also had a dis
patch Btating, Denny, republican, in the
seventh Kentucky district, is elected by

represented by Breckinridge.

Nkw Yoiik, Nov. 7. A survey of the
returns this morning confirms the hasty
estimates and partial returns of last night
in the West, Northwest and of the
I'ueitic coast. The republican landslide
is overw helming, and republican gains
in the Southwest are of such magnitude
as to suggest almost a revolution. Ohio
has given the largest republican majority
in its history. It is thought the official
returns will show a plurality of 140,000
to 130,000. Wisconsin has elected a re
publican state ticket and nine out of ten
congressmen. In Illinois the democrats
are crushingly defeated, tne state going
republican by from 40,000 to 50,000
plurality. The congressional election is
almost solidly republican. Indiana is
republican by from 20,000 to 25,000
Admiral Oherardl Ketired.
Washington, Nov. 7. Secretary Her
bert has issued a formal order retiring
Admiral Gherardi, senior admiral of the
navy, and commandant at the navy-
yard, on the 10th inst. The following
details are also made: Superintendent
of naval academy, Captain Philip
Cooper, now in command of the United
States ship San Francisco. Cooper is
one of the youngest captains. The sec
retary expects to detail Admiral Walker
to the lighthouse board to succeed Ad-
niral Greer, who will shortly retire.
Commodore L. H. Pythian has been
detailed ub superintendent of the naval
observatory, to relieve Captain McNair.
Captain McNair to be on tho examining

Sax Francinco, Nov. 7. Returns re

materially change figures sent out at 3
I o'clock. P.udil, democrat, for governor,

which will be snllicient to elect him.

I F.9t , rep., in the interior than was ex
j pected. Republican managers concede
the city to liudd, but are. hopeful that
the country vote will be large enough to
overcome Budd's plurality. Budd's as
sociates in the state fight appear to have
been sacrificed in his interests. In this
city they are behind the head of the
ticket, and the interior returns indicate
a similar condiiion. It is apparent that
th republicans have elected six or seven
congresenien, Magnire in the fourth dis
trict being the only democrat w ho will
represent California in the next con
gress. He leads his republican oppo
nent, Shannon, by about 4,000 votes.
Returns indicate that the next legisla
ture will be republican by a big major
ity. At 11 o'clock this morning Chairman
Cornwall, cf the republican state central
committee, was seen at headquarters,
and when asked to give an opinion as to
the outlook in the state, said that the
returns were coming in so Blowly and
were so conflicting that it would be im
possible to give anything like a definite
statement until tonight or tomorrow
morning. The count in this city had
reached such a stage, however, that the
indication favored the election of Budd,
deui., for governor. Mr. Cornwall was
of the opinion that the remainder of the
democratic state ticket would be defeat
ed. He said the legislature would ba
certainly republican, thus insuring the
return of a republican successor to Sena
tor Perkins. The republican chairman
was also equally certain of the election
of six out of seven congressmen in the
state. He said that the principal fight
had been made on the election of the
republican candidate for congress, and
he considered altogether that the state
had done its duty to the republicans.
Half of the city vote counted by noon
gives Budd 6,500 plurality. Temple,

"Without much concert of effort by

Though th changes may benefit us
little, the rebuke will nevertheless be

Ixn isvii.le, Ky., Nov. H. In today's
Courier-Journal, under the head, "Have
We a Democratic party?" Mr. Watter
son says :
"Never did a great party go to the
people under such handicaps as were
carried by the democrats into the cam
paign just ended. Tho hard times were
bad enough, bat they might have been
parried. Faction fights among small
claimants and rival place men were bad
enough, but parties have met and over
come such obstacles before now ; but
with the record of perfidy and dishonor,
as Cleveland aptly described it, to face
and defend in a hand-to-hand fight with
the united republicans, led by Harrison,
McKinley and Reed, it was dishearten
ing for the democrats to have to face
also the dull pelf-sufficiency and stolid
indifference of an administration that
made no sign, uttered no word, and at
least in the state of New York, seemed
to desire to defeat the regular democratic
nominees. The battle for tariff reform
will have to go down to tho foot and
take a new start. The battle over the
monev issue w ill soon be upon us. We
shall eee if there is democracy enough
left of the true-blue stripe to make a
greatcoat good against all weather, or
whether we must still wear a coat of
many colors, covering not a homogenous
party inspired by faith and trust, but a
mere bundle of factions thrown together
by the upheaval of the times."

Baltimore, Nov. 8, Ambassador
Thomas F. Bayard said today: "I had
great apprehensions as to the result of
the recent elections for some time. I
don't want to run afoul of these gentle
men responsible for the delay in passing
the tariff bill, but the patriot's duty is
unmistakeable. The necessity for pure
democratic tariff legislation was never so
great as it is now. Bills for free raw
material should be passed immediately
and then the country would be able to
contemplate the democratic idea of the
tariff in full working order for two years
before the national election rolls around.
If this is done I have little fear tiie ver
dict will be unsatisfactory in 1S9G."

a crushing defeat. The Montana re

Washington, Nov. 8. Chairman
Babcock, of the republican congressional
committee, received the following letter
today from A. E. Holtou, chairman of
the republican state committee of North
"We won a complete victory at the

judicial ticket by estimated majorities
of over 40,000, and have both branches
of the legislature, with four republican
