Only one doubtful state remains Ken

for Bryan by 7800; the Republicans also
claim the state, but give no figures. It
will require the official count to deter
mine the result.
McKlnley carried Nebraska by at least
2000. The Legislature .Is In doubt, and
will not be determined until the official
count of Douglas County is in. The Re

IiOUISVDLIiE, Ky., Nov. 8. At' 12:30 A.
M. the Courier-Journal, with returns
from all but 11 of the 1S84 precincts in
Kentucky, puts Bryan's majority at TBOu
and Beckham's at 4150. These 11 precincts
are sparsely settled and gave In the last
state election combined Republican ma
jorities of less than EO0. In arriving at
the figures, 7800 and 4150 as the majori
ties, respectively, of Bryan and Beck
ham, the usual Republican majorities in
the missing 11 precincts were allowed for.
John W. Yerkes, rep, candidate for Gov
ernor, left tonight for his home at Dan
ville. The Republicans now claim that majorities-will
beshown for McKlnley and
Yerkes when the returning board can
vasses the vote at Frankfort, which It
will do three weeks from election day.
The returning board is Democratic and
the Legislature also Democratic Ex
Governor McCreery, who managed the
Democratic campaign, tonight closed the
headquarters and will return to his home
-In Richmond. He said tonight that he
had heard from campaign chairmen in
every county in the state, and that al
lowing all the Republican claims In th
Eleventh District, the Republican Gibral
tar, he placed the majorities of Bryan
and Beckham, respectively, at SOOO ana
The Louisville Commercial (Republi
can) will tomorrow say the election is
"very close." It will not concede the
defeat of Yerkes and the McKlnley Elec
tors, and will say that the official count
only can determine the result.
Chairman Combs, of the Republican
State Campaign Committee, was quoted
today as follows:
"Willie we have not the figures thor
oughly compiled, yet we are certain that
Yerkes carried Kentucky by a small,
though safe, majority. The result Is
very close. I think that it will probably
require the official count to determine
how the state goes. When I left head
quarters Yerkes had a small plurality,
with 17 counties still to be heard from. I
am Informed that over 3000 ballots were
not counted by Goebel election officers
throughout the state on account of trivial
"We have discovered that not only
have systematic frauds been practiced all
over the state, but In some counties
there was wholesale exclusion of voters
from the poll". In Fayette County, for
Instance, in two precincts, 500 voters were
kept from voting. In Breathitt, 600 per
sons were kept from voting, and chal
lengers and inspectors were also excluded
from the booths. In numbers of counties
the returns were padded by the Demo
crats, notably. In Franklin and Owen

Republicans Stand a Good Chance of
Controlling: the Legislature.
OMAHA, Nov. 8. Complete returns
from two-thirds of the counties and scat
tering returns from the remainder show
that McKlnley has carried Nebraska by
a plurality of at least 2000.
An equal number of Teturns on the
state ticket Indicate that Nebraska has
re-elected Governor Foynter and the en
tire state ticket by pluralities ranging
from 500 to 1S0O over the Republicans, the
Governor being high man. If the rest of
the state shows the same percentage of
gsln and loss, Poynters election is cer
tain, and. the counties to be heard from
being mostly in the western part of the
state. It is fair to presume that this Is
The Legislature will likely bo decided
by Douglas County, in which it will take
the official count to determine the vote.
The World-Herald, dem, claims the Lieutenant-Governor
will cast the deciding
vote In the upper house, and that tho
lower house Is evenly divided, with two
places in doubt.
The stato Republican; committee, which
last night gave out the claim that Dled
rlch and the Republican state ticket were
elected with from 5000 to 7000 majority,
this afternoon scaled down "close to the
danger llnev" and claimed the election of
the state ticket by'lOOO to 2000.
The Republican committee concedes one
State Senator In Douglas to the Demo
crats and on Representative, statins' also
that the official count may be required
regarding two other Representatives.
This would give the Republicans a safe
majority on joint ballot.
The Congressmen In this stato are: Two
Republicans, Burkett and Mercer; three
fuslonlsts, Stark, Shelienberger and Rob
inson, with the Sixth district represented
by Neville, pop, who Is a candidate for
re-election, still In doubt. The Sixth dls-
JUricC so-tar'ss Jieora'from, gives 'Neville
100 lead, but the- counties of this district
which have not been (heard) from are
likely to defeat him.
The State Journal's Returns
LINCOLN, Neb.. Nov. 8.The State
Journal has complete returns on Presi
dent from 73 of the SO counties in the
state. Careful estimates on the remain
ing 14 show that McKlnley has carried
the state by TSS5. The Journal has re
turns on the state ticket from 59 coun
ties. These make Deltrich, rep, 692 votes
ahead of Foynter, fus. The remaining
counties should slightly Increase his lead,
but as Deltrich has run behind McKlnley,
the result Is doubtful. The Populist State
Committee claims Poynter election by
Bo Gives Kentucky Webraslca and
Idaho to McKlnley.
tNIEJW YORK, Nov. 8. As a result of
messages received at National headquar
ters today by National Committeeman J.
H. Manley and N. B. Scott from doubt
ful points, Mr. Manley this afternoon
gave out the following statement:
"Full returns today leave the situation
as It was yesterday. Wje have won by
SOS electoral votes. "We have carried
every Northern state but Colorado, Ne
vada and Montana. "We have carried
Kentucky, Maryland, Delaware and West
Virginia. As we predicted during the en.
tire campaign, they are attempting to rol
us of the electoral votes m Kentucky un
der the power ot the Goebel law. If they
succeed, we shall have 295 electoral votes.
Our candidate for Governor wires that we
have carried Kentucky for the electoral
ticket and elected him by over 7000 ma
jority. The time has come when the
American people ought to insist, at what
ever cost, that the votes shall be counted
as they were honestly cast."
Senator Scott, in answer to telegrams
Inquiring as to the result in Nebraska,
received the following dispatch from Ed
ward Rosewater, member of the National
advisory committee, who is a candidate
for the United States Senate from Ne
braska: "Returns from rural districts are incom
plete, but there Is no doubt whatever
that McKlnley carries Nebraska by not
less than 3000. The Governorship is close,
but the prospects favor the Republicans.
Both houses of the Legislature will be
Republican by a small majority."
McKlnley Plurality -Will Be Cloao
AN FRANCISCO, Nov. 8. Nearly
complete returns from the state show
that California has given McKlnley and
Roosevelt close to 40,000 plurality. The
figures so far as compiled are: McKln
ley! 160,352, Bryan 112,283; plurality for
McKlnley 88,069. Tho precincts yet to be
heard from gave tho following vote in 1S98:
McKlnley 12.746, Bryan 15,914. If the av
erage of Republican gains Is maintained
In these precincts, they will swell the
plurality for McKlnley about 2000, making
it reach the 40,000 mark.
There is no longer any doubt that Cali
fornia has returned a solid Republican
delegation to Congreps. In the Second
District, the .only one in which the con
test was close, Samuel D. Woods will
have 1500 plurality over J, D. Sproul.
Julius Kahn has 5300 plurality in the
Fourth District and MdJujchUal224ipeiielan-and -Okanogan. With, these, scat-

Both branches of the Legislature wiU
be Republican by phenomenal majorities.
The Senate will stand 34 Republicans to
six Democrats, this being the result of
the election of but one Democrat. The
hold-overs are: Republicans 15, Demo
crats 5. This gives the Republicans a
clear majority of IS hold-overs for the
Legislature, which will' choose a Senator.
The Assembly, according to the best
figures now obtainable, will be com
posed of 62 Republicans and 18 Democrats.
The former Assembly was made up of 63
Republicans and 21 Democrats. As tho
Senate then was 26 Republicans and 14
Democrats this Legislature on Joint bal
lot will show 11 more Republicans than
ESTIMATES IS MISSOURI.
Democrats Gitc Bryan -45,000 Plu
rality. ST. LOUIS, Nov. 8. Based upon re
turns from 85 counties, the Democratic
State Central Committee now claims Mis
souri for Bryan and Dockery, for Gov
ernor, by pluralities of about 43,000 and
33,000 respectively. The 29 counties still
to be heard from may develop some sur
prises but It Is not thought that these
estimates will be materially changed.
Chairman Alkensr of tho Republican
State Central Committee, conceded these
figures today but later, on the receipt
of new3 from additional counties, changed
his estimate placing Dockery's plurality
at 25,000 and' Bryan's at 40,000.
While the Democrats confidently claim
a majority of 50 or 60 on joint ballot In
the Legislature, Mr. Alkens says that
their majority will not be over 15 or 20
and possibly lower than that. He. con
cedes, however, on the face of the re
turns now at hand, that tho Democrats
will have a majority.
Of the 15 Congressmen voted for, the
Democrats elected 13.
The Republicans are considering a prop
osition to contest the election in the City
of St Louis. The matter has already been
discussed by tho Republican cfty com
mittee and by individual candidates and
will be taken up for formal and official
consideration as soon as the official count
has been made. They allege that a prop
er examination of the ballots would result
in the rejection of from 3500 to 5000 fraud
ulent votes that have been placed to the
credit of the Democratic candidates.
This would be sufficient to reverse tho Te
sult on nearly all the candidates.
THE ILLINOIS LEGISLATURE.
Republicans Will Have a Majority'
CHICAGO. Nov. 8. It Is still impossible
to give the make-up of the next Illinois
Legislature with accuracy. Returns come
in slowly, and when they come, they
differ according to the party receiving
them. The returns seem to pull down
the Republican claims, although there is
no reason to doubt that the Legislature
will be Republican. " Tne figures, accord
ing to returns received tonight, indicate
the formation will be as follows:
Republican majority on joint ballot, 18.

INCOLN, Netx. New. 8-aCn. 3ryan to
night gave out the following statement
concerning the election:
1 "The result was a surprise to ma. and
the magnitude of tho Republican victory
was a surpriso to our opponents, as well
as to those who voted our ticket. It is
impossible to analyze the- returns until
they are more complete, but. speaking
generally, we seem to have gained In- the
large cities and to have lost in the
smaller cities and In the country.
"The Republicans were able to secure
tickets or passes for all their voters who
were away from, home, and this gave
them considerable advantage. We have
no way of knowing at this time how
much money was. spent to. the purchase
of votes and In colonization. But whlla
these would account for some of the Re
publican gains, they could not account
for the widespread Increase In the Re
"The prosperity argument was probably
the most potent one used by the Re
publicans. They compared present condi
tions with the panic times of 93 to 96
and this argument had weight with thoso
who did not stop to consider the reason-i
for tho change.
The appeal, 'Stand by the President
while the war is on,' had a great deal
of Influence among those who did not
realize that a war against a doctrine of
oelf-govemment In the Philippines must
react upon us in this country. We made
an honest fight upon an honest platform,
and, having done our duty as we saw it.
we have nothing to regret.
"We were defeated but are not discour
aged. The fight must go on. I am sure
that the Republican policies will be re
pudiated by the people when the ten
dency of those policies is fully under
stood. The contest between plutocracy
and democracy cannot end until one or
the other is completely triumphant."
Concerning himself. Mr. Bryan said:
"I have come out of the campaign with
perfect health and a clear conscience. I
did my utmost to bring success to the
principles for which I stood. Mr. Steven
son did all that he could; Senator Jones
and the members of the Democratic, Pop
ulist; Silver Republican and the Anti-Imperialist
Committees did all they could.
Mr. Hearst and his associates In the club
organization put forth their best efforts.
Our newspapers, our campaign speakers
and our local organizations all did their
best. I have no fault to find pd so re
proaches, "I shall continue to take an active in
terest in politics as long as I live. I be
lieve it to be the duty of the citizen to
do so, and, In addition- to my Interest as
a citizen, I feel that it will require a
lifetime of work to repay the political
friends who have done so much for me.
"I shall not be a Senatorial candidate
before the Legislature which has been
elected. Senator Allen deserves the Sen
atorship, which soea to the Populists.
Mr. Hitchcock and Mr. W. H. Thompsin
axe avowed candidates for the Senator
ship. They deserve well from the party,
and I am too grateful to thorn for past
support to stand in their way, even If I
desired a seat In the Senate."
Mr. Bryan says he has no other plans
at present than to remain at home, where
he returned from the fatiguing campaign.
He denied the report that he would ie
move from Nebraska and make Texas
