M'KINLEV HAS WON IT
THE COMPETITOR TRIAL AGAIN
California Probably Safe for McKlnloy
and Oregon Sore of Fonr-Thooi-and
Majority for Him.
Detroit, Nov. 3. At midnight it waa
was generally conceded tbot Michigan
baa gone Republican by 25,000 to 50,000
plurality. The latter is the figure given
out at that hour by Chairman Ferry, of
the republican state committee. Chair
man Baker, of the fusion committee, de
clined at this hour to make any state
ment. Secretary Atward, of the republi
can committee, cliams the election of all
12 congressman, but the democrats still
hope to save some of their candidates.
. The Tribune (free silver), on the basis
of the scattering returns thus far re
ceived, estimates McKinley's plurality
in the state, outaide of this county, at
San Fbancisco, Nov. 3. If McKinley
keeps up the average ehown in precincts
already counted in California, there Is
no doubt he will carry the state bya
comfot table majority. The Republican
state central committed claims he will
have 30,000 the beat of it, and six Re
publican congressmen out of seven have
been elected. -'
In Eastern Oregon. .
Spokane, Wash., Nov. 4. Eastern
Washington, according to latest esti
mates, will give Bryan 7,000 majority,
and the state ticket nearly the same.
Rogers, People's party candidate for
governor, is not behind the ticket, and
the congressional candidates, Lewis and
Jones, are nearly even with Bryan.
May Require Official Count.
Chicago, Nov. 4.- The Associated
Press received the following from Joseph
M. Carey, from Cheyenne:
"Wyoming is in great doubt; I thiok
McKinley will have a 'small majority.
It may require the official count to de
cide who is elected."
Bryan's Clean Sweep.
New Orleans, Nov. 3. Election re-'
tares are coming in elowly, bat the in
dications are that the democrats have
nade a clean sweep,- electing,, the con
gressional delegation, and that Bryan
Las carried the state by not less than
Bryan's Majority In Mississippi, j
Jackson, Miae., Nov. 3. Mississippi
gives Bryan a majority of 50,000. The
vote for Watson will not exceed 10,000.
The seven democratic candidates for
congress are elected by majorities rang
ing from 1000 to 5000.
IDemoeratio Claim in Illinois.
Chicago, Nov. 3. At 9 :30 the chair
man of the Democratic committee had
received no reports from the county
chairmen. Press reports indicated a
majority of 50,000 for McKinley in Cook
county, and this was generally conceded
by the committee.
- No reports on which even an estimate
of the state, outside., of. Cook could be
made had been received, but -the com
mittee still claims 35,000 for Bryan. The
. vote by precincts runs 10 per cent below
the' registration. ' This bears out the re
port that the returns so far received are
only on straight Democratic and Repub
lican tickets, omitting the People's
Party, which the committee counts on
for 25,000 votes. . - '.''",.

Proceedings In the Competitor Trial
Havana, Nov. 3. Owing to a notice
of protest from Cdnsul General Lee,
taking exception to the new court mar
tial of the Competitor's crew, begun in
Fortress Cabana recently, the proceed
ings in the case have been temporarily
suspended. A summons has, however,
been published in the local papers re
quiring various witnesses to - appear and
file written evidence against the prison

Ferran, who after landing surrendered

The report that Antonio Maceo
crossed the military line after- attacking
Artimesa and being repulsed with great
loss, according to the official account is
again denied. It is stated that the in
surgents on that occasion acted without
unrfon, disobeyed orders, made no at
tack upon the forts .and. were unable to
capture the Spanish occupants. Maceo,
the day after bombarding ArtimeBa, in
conversation with a member of a firm
near his forces, sustained and admitted
that it was no easy matter to cross the
military line. Spanish forces are slowly
occupying positions Maceo may have in
tended to use, and be is said to be rest
ing in order to care for the wounded.
There are two versions as to the
whereabouts of Maceo. One has it that
Maceo and Rubia are in the mountains
on the limits of Cabanass and Cayaja
bos, which constitute-part of Sierra de
Rosa Rio. Another report says he is in
the range of mountains of. the Sierra,
south of San Cristobal.
Toe Spanish troops are continuing to
advance westward toward the insurgent
strongholds, without receiving any as

the military line which are being still

devoted to a celebration of the time when the Grand Old Colum
bia flows from our beautiful city un vexed to the sea. .
