BALTIMORE. Nor. 6. Returns received
In thte city up to mlfinlght,,and',includ-1
ing every county an tne sifiie, paniyuuj
dal and partly estimated, indicate ti "re
sult In the Legislative contest -which Is
almost Trithaut parallel In Maryland. Tne
most careful estimates and calculations
give the Democrats 46 Delegates and seven
newly-elected Senators, which, combined
with the 10 -who hold over In tne Senate,
assures the friends of Mr. Gorman a total
of 63 on Joint "ballot The Republicans,
appears, have elected 49 Delegates and six
Senators, -which, added to their three
hold-over Senators, gives theci a total of
ES on Joint ballot These figures indicate
that the Republicans will be able to
organize the House of Delegates.
The situation in Baltimore City is a pe
culiar one, in that the returns from the
Second Legislative district are In such an
Incomplete state as to make the result
there uncertain as to two Legislative can
didates. The election Judges In two pre
cincts became involved last night in a
controversy over the rejection df several
ballots, and finally locked the ballots and
the poll books In the ballot box and turned
them over to the supervisors of election,
with the statement that they declined to
sign the returns. One of the Democratic
candidates lacks but 97 votes of election
and another needs but 103. The Republi
cans seem inclined to concede the election
of the first mentioned when the returns
are In from the two missing precincts,
but assert that the other will be beaten.
In the table of members, therefore, but
one Democrat In Baltimore City is put
down as probably .elected, while the Re
publipans are given 16. The ballots will
not be counted until noon tomorrow, until
which time nothing definite can be
One of the surprises of the day was the
close vote in Allegheny County, heretofore
safely Republican by majorities "ranging
from 1S to "200Q. The Democrats' have
elected tnelr Senator and one Representa
tive In that county and the result as to
the remaining four Delegates is close.
Allegheny County Js the home of Senator
Wellington. St Mary's County, which
has been considered doubtful, has gone
eolidly Democratic, and Washington Wil
kinson, one of the picturesque figures In
the Republican side in the Senate, is rele
gated to private life.

more, giving Hering, Dem, for Con
troller, 37.626; Piatt, Repj 40,353. The Re
publican also elected their entire city
ticket with the exception of Davis for
Sheriff, who appears to be beaten by 600
The first experience of a general election
under the new law has not proved satis
factory. Not for many years has tbere
been so great delay In arriving at the
result in tho city as there was last night.
Under ordinary conditions the entire vote
has been counted and announced by 1
o'clock, but at that hour last night less
than 3& prcclqct, not one-half of the
city, hM Wen counted, and from the
counties not over a dozen election districts
had been heard from.
THE 'HESUIT IN OHIO. "
Itepnhlicna Plurality Beats All "OH
' Year" Records.
COLUMBUS, O., Nov. fi. With almost
complete returns In tonight It Is noted
that the Republican plurality beats all
zecords in what has become known as the
"off-year," and, with two exceptions, the
records of other years. In tho "off
3 ears," or those following a Presidential
clfcon, the Democrats have carried
Ohio, the exceptions being In 1S$1, after
the death of Garfield, and in 1S$5 and
JfcSS, after the Cleveland election. In two
of these three exceptional years the Pres
ident was a Democrat, arid those were
considered "off-years" for the Democrats,
With the single exception of Hoadley, In
1883, the Democrats never elected a Gov
ernor of Ohio in any other than "off
jeirs' n!nce the Republican party was
organised, and then they won on a local
issue of liquor taxation.
Wherever local Ihsuc3 were paramount.
thia year, the Republicans sustained
losses, notably at Columbus, on account
of local option, and at Cleveland, on ac
count of Mayor Johnson's agitation of
'"taxation inequalities." Where no such
conditions Rcro confronted, the Repub
licans made gains. They carried some
Democratic counties that never before
were represented by Republicans. The
state was carried on National Issues in
volved in the support of President Roose
velt and the endorsement of Senator For
aker for re-election. In interviews, Sen
ator Hnnna. Governor Nash and Chair
man Dick, on the Republican side, and
Colonel Kllbourne, Chairman Daugherty
and Secretary Gilliam, on the Democrat
ic side, agree that the result was due to
the trend of sentiment In National affairs.
None of these six leaders or others in in
terviews on the result refer to the silver
question as a factor In the contest
Chairman Daugherty added, with empha
sis. "I believe the Republican success Is
due to the assassination of McXinley and
the prevailing prosperity."
Secretary Gilliam said: "The sympathy
aroused by McKInley's death, Just be
fore the election, removed4 that antago
nism which always exists against the
Administration. Undoubtedly we wefe,
greatly handicapped by our Inability to
go on the etump and criticise the policies
of the Administration."
JUate tonight. Chairman Dick, of the
Republican state committee, had the re
turns from 86 counties In Ohio, with only
two missing, and tho .two missing coun
ties wore estimated from the newspaper
reports, with the following results:
sixty-two" counties have, Republican
pluralities aggregating WJ4ttI' Twenty-six
counties have Democratic pluralities ag

Nash over Kllbourne for Governor 67,661,

House Ventilation in Bombay.
Moat of the new houses In Bombay
hfcve a fine showing of windows on the
outside, but no cbrrcspondlng opening
to allow a current of air to pass through.
The mean annual temperature 13 79.13 de
grees Fahrenheit, and the mem relative
humidity 77 per cent. The mean annual
rangtv of temperature is 46,9 degrees, but
there are periods during the rains when
the diurnal range of temperature does fnoj
exceed 2 degrees, and unless thcroMs
w'nd, ventilation Is practically stopped
because the outer air and thit In the
buildings are reduced tb nearly one tem
perature. "With the thermometer at 52 to
5 degrees, and the air heavily charged
with moisture, the surplus heat of the
human body escapes too slowly, and .much
discomfort ensues. As It Is not possible
to dry thq air In an ordinary house, the
usual remedy Is to produce a current by
means of a punkah, and although, the In
fluence of this is very local, lt has been
found that In the frorst Bombay weather
life s made tolerable In Its uurrent. The
chief drawback of the punkah is the
punkahwalla. He is dirty, unreliable, es
pecially at night, and his work, counting
day and night, costs 24 rupees per month

No one, he said, had Intended to attack

out the trouble was, he said, that the
public did not have the proper conception
of the occurrence as reported, and had
gathered the Idea that the Brooklyn was
running away from the scene of conflict
Admiral Schley had denied 'the reported
colloquy, Ve feald, but not Until after It
had done him grealt Injury.
Mr. Raynor then took up the first speci
fication, Admiral Schley's condtfet during
The Scared 3rr. Ports'.
"Now we como to Mr. tVood and Mr.
Potts'," ho said; "Mr. PQtts and Mr.
"Woods." (Laughter lp the court.)
After reading the testimony of several
officers as to the splendid bearing of Ad
miral Schley, Mr. Raynor read he testi
mony of Mr. Potts to tbe effect that "he
got up and sat down." Mr. Raynor pro
ceeded to ridicule Mr. Potts as "that pre
cocious child of the kindergarten, who
confessod that he was always scared
when hq was In battle, but who. unfortu
nately, was never engaged In any battle
sufficient enough even to arouse his tim
idity." At this point Captain Lemly protested
against Mr. Raynors strictures of Lieutenant-Commander
"Coudsel is traducing the reputation of
an Officer of ability and high standing,"
said Captain Lemly.
Mr. Raynor You have no right to tra
duce tho reputation of Admiral Schley.
Captain LemlyI do not think that
counsel should say this is an attempt to
traduce Admiral Schley. I am not Tiore

Is my duty. I was ordered to come I

Mr. Raynor I do not think the court
will permit this. You must not make a
statement of that sort. I will not per
Admiral Dewey No.
Mr. Raynor He Is not only unreliable,
but very offensive.
Captain Lemly Counsel gets up and
saya that we are, in the discharge of a
most painful duty, trying to "traduce Ad
Mr. Raynor I have borne willing testi
mony to the Impartiality with which he
has tried his case and the delicate pqsj
tlqn he occupies. But I do ask my brother
not to get up and contradict me, and say
that I am unreliable when I read the
testimony that sustains me. I appreciate
the posjtion he is in. He has filled tha.t1
pTosltJon as well and faithfully -as it could
possibly be filled "by any one. I have not
said a word in criticism of his conduct.
It 13 only when he refers to my traduc

to refer to his traducing Admiral Schley.
Admiral Dewey The court, of course
will read all thq testimony that has been
given. "We shall be governed by the tes
timony. AVe know exactly what Lieutenant-Commander
Potts said. He said he
was scared, but counsel did enlarge a
little on it.
Mr. Rnynor's Peroration.
The difficulty was then smoothed ovpr.
Mr. Raynor took up tbe other specifica
tions and reviewed tho testimony of the
various witnesses against Schley. Mr.
Raynor closed as follows:
"I havo now briefly presented thla case
as it appears tc me in Its genoral outline.
Such a trial as this has never, to my
knowledge, taken place In the histqry of
the world. It seemed to my mind that this
case had hardly opened with tho testi
mony of Captain Hlgglnson when it com
menced to "totter, and from day to day
its visionary fabric disappeared from
.view. "When Captain Cook, their last wit
ness, was pU on tho stand, the entire
structure collapsed, and It was when the
witnesses from our own ships and the gal
lant Captain and crew of the Oregon and
Admiral Sehley had narrated their urivar
nlshed tale that the whole tenement, with
all of Its compartments, from its founda
tion to Itg turret, has disintegrated and
lies hero like a mass of blackened rultw.
"It has ta&on three years to reveal the
truth. There is not a single word that
has fallen from the tonguo of ,a stnglo wit
ness, friend or foe. that casts the shadow
of a reflection upon tho honored name of
the hero of Santiago. He has never
claimed the victory of that day. No word
to this effect has ever gone forth from
him to the American people. The valiant
Cook, the heroic Clark, the lamented
PhlUp, the Intrepid and undaunted
Walnwrlght, and all the other Cgptaifla,
atd every man at every gun and every
soul on board of every ship are equal
participants, with Admiral Schlqy In the

possessions. 'Well done; congratulate you
on the victory,' was the streamer that
was bent from the halyard ot the Brook

protesting against the inclusion in the rec

miral Dewey, as president of the court,

"1. "While fully cognizant of and 'abid

quest on behalf of the Admiral:
"2. Arguments by counsel being mat-1

wide circulation with the public, it is re
spectfully submitted that argument by
counsel upon matters regarding any offi
cial acts of Admiral Sampson which he
had not been permitted to defend and
which the court, by an express ruling,
has excluded from the evidence in the
case, is eminently improper, and it Is
respectfully requested that the statement

argument yesterday at tho afternoon -session
to the effect that Admiral Sampson
permitted tho Spanish cruher Colon, to
lie in signt. wunoui auacKing iier irom
the time of his arrival on June 1. 1SSS,
to about J0:2 A. M. of that day, be either
stricken from the records In the oase or
evidence be introduced by which Ad
miral Sampson may be permitted to de
fend such a grave accusation involving
his honor as a naval officer."
"It is further moat earnestly and most
respectfully requested that counsel In the
future be restricted to the evidence ad
duced as regards the official acts of Ad
miral Sampsdn and pot be permitted to
Include those matters expressly ruled out
by the court and which the Admiral has
not been permitted to defend, by prevent
ing a manifest Injustice and the Intro
duction of accusations against tho Ad
miral in the record by Indirect means,
which was deemed Improper by tho court
by direct means."
