New York, Nov. 3.—Tammany's victory in the first municipal election in Greater New York is a sweeping one. The only question remaining to be set- WILBK & WISE. ^%.-%^%/%^^%^%-^. E, A. VAN WVCK. tlea at 11 o'clock last night was the one of the plurality by which the entire ticket headed by Robert A. Van Wyck claimed by the Democrats the next house will have 10 Democratic majority. State senators were not elected this year. Other estimates give a Republican majority in the assembly of 3. Hair a Million Votes Cast. The offer was declined on the ground that in such a movement the Republican organization could participate only colncidently with the other party to the compact, and the Citizens' Union, on the other hand, refused to recall its nomination of Low in order that the form of selecting a candidate might be carried out conjointly with the Republican organization. The total number of votes cast was not far either way from 500,000. The indications are that Van Wyck received 210,000; Low, 145.000; Tracy, 100,000. and George, 15,000. The aggregate is swelled by a few thousand votes cast for Gleason (Independent Democrat), Saniei (Socialist), and Wardwell (Prohibitionist). On the city ticket with Judge Van Wyck, Bird S. Coler is elected comptroller and Randolph Guggenheimer president of the municipal council. Republicans Were Soon \Veary. Chairman Quigg. of the Republican city and county committee, was very glum and left the headqu;t.rters early. He refused to make a formal statement an« was very loath to discuss the situation. At the headquarters there were f«w prominent Republicans present, and th«y left the place shortly after Quigg did. No one would make a statement, The Republicans kept up their appearance of confidence until the early returns showed the gains for Van Wyck. and then collapsed entirely. It is impossible to describe the gloom at the Republican headquarters. If anything the depression was more apparent than at the George headquarters. Jfot Many Votes for Henry George. Whatever might, have ^been the re- •ult had Henry George survived the campaign,the Indications from theearli. est returns were that the substitution of the son for the father as the mayoralty candidate of the Thomas Jefferson Democracy had proved a failure from any but the sentimental point of view. In fact the George candidacy has made but a beggarly showing in votes. Although in the case of the Thomas Jefferson Democracy's ticket the ticket substituted was of the same name as the candidate who died, the election board held that the letter of the law should be observed and pasters were fcces wer* jxnlbited on the screens } cheers greeted all of them. The Democratic candidate seemed to have the most adherents or they had the most lung power, at any rate. They cheered their man with an asitonlshing vigor. Low was not much behind. There was a curious kind of cheer for George at all the screens. One would Imagine that nearly everybody was cheering for him. but there was not that burst of enthusiasm that greeted Van Wyck. It speared as if everybody wanted to express h:s sympathy for the dead man and at the same time do it quietly. When the returns besan to be shown and each return gave Van Wyck bigger and bigger pluralities, the Democrats drew on the reserve power of their lungs. When about a third of the city had been counted up the cheering for Van Wyck. which had been Incessant, was augmented and the noise thev made was something startling. How the people's throats stood it Is a wonder. At one time some of the crowd in front of the Park Row side of City Hall park climbed over the railings and jumped on the grass. A big policeman jumped on them and they climbed back In a hurry. This caused a jam and there was a panic on the part of some women in the crowd, A few screamed, but: strong men kept them safe.

V«n Wyck's Headq Barters Full of People bat the Victor Was Absent. The headquarters of Robert A. Van Wyck at the Bartholdl hotel was the scene of great, enthusiastic joy as the returns began to indicate a sweeping Tammany victory. A score cr more people were in the rooms where the returns were being 1 received and they cheered continuously. But it was a feast without the host. Mayor-elect Van Wyck did not appear at the headquarters at any time during the night. He left the headquarters at 4 p. m. going- to police headquarters with former Mayor Hugh J. Grant, where he entered a private room in the office of the boiler inspector. He stayed there until 7 o'clock receiving of Henry George ana to the fact ffcit the Republican party, though nominally hostile to Tammany, "reaJly depends fcr its existence on a secret workiny alliance with the sachems who follow Croker's lead."

The Daily Chronicle would heartily congratulate the New York reformer* and their distinguished standard bearer on the conduct of a campaign whick win be prominent In American history. The Daily News says: "The Republican machine has declined to tmmolit* Itself on the altar of good government. The only chance for Democracy coming out well from its trial in New York lay in the defeat of the party system, but partly discipline and party loyalty ar« not easily broken."

Wyck polled a vote which falls possibly 40,000 under the combined votes of General Tracy (Rep.) and Seth Low (Citt. zens' Union). The latter was successful to the extent of polling an aggregate vote in excess of the 140,000 pledges implied by the signatures to the petition upon which he became the candidate of an independent movement, which at the outset offered to join hands with the Republican party organization in a concerted , effort to enclude Tammany from power in the greater city to come into being on Jan. 1, 1S9S, with a population the second in magnitude of the great cities of the world.

The distribution was not done in all cases, and consequently voters were under the necessity of writing in the name of the second Henry George or voting the ticket as it stood, neither of which, it is claimed, was a literal compliance with the law. In some cases citizens who had intended to vote for George would 7iot do so, anticipating that an attempt would result in the vitiating of the ballot as a whole. GKZAT CROWDS IX THE STREETS. Scene at Night When the Election Return* Were Bulletined. The attraction of the newspaper bulletin board for the crowds was not a •whit less than it was last year— a presidential election. The spaces in front of the bulletins were filled with people, complete returns having been received j leaving only narrow lanes through which from all of the districts: Van Wyck. 235.1S1; Low, 149.S73; Tracy. 101.S23. Van Wyck's plurality over Low, S5.30S. George's vote will not go over 20,000, probably. Democrats Carry the State. Rain, which prevailed generally all over the state, had the effect of keeping a great many of the country voters from the polls. The result is- apparent in the reduced majorities given in concededly Republican district? to William J. Wallace, the Republican nominee for chief judge of the court of appeals, as compared with the pluralities by which the same districts were carried last year. In many districts the pluralities of a year ago are reduced nearly one-half, and in few that have been reported is the falling off less than 25 per cent. Conceding to Judge Parker, Dem.. 100.000 in Greater New York, it is probable that he has won in the state. The return? for assembly- Blood or Derangement of the Isfervous System.

The indications are that the Democrats will have a small majority of the state assembly. In the Greater city it is estimated from very meagre returns, that there will be 51 Democrats and 10 Republicans, while in the upper part of the state there are said to have been Changes from Republicans to Democrats in twenty districts. In the last assembly the Republicans had a majority or 71 Concedin* all that * | men, women and children pushed one j another until they got out at the ends. ' Then they breathed freer and adjusted : their clothing.

Some had two and i three big sheets stretched in front of their buildings displaying:, with their election figures, photographs/ ar.d colored : views and the pictures of the candidates. ; City Hall square was a living- mass. ' From the south side of Nassau street to the park front of the city hall there were but two lanes in the enormous mass of people and these ianes were just wide enough for one man to get through. • When the people tried to pass one another there was pushing ard shoving and much grunting and some bad words, but in general the crowd was good-natured and g-ood-tempered. The crowd ran more to noise this year than last. There were more horns blowing than is usual on an election night and at times it seemed like New Tear's EV= •when Trinity's chimes are drowned by the horn Wowing.

The last was that ot Captain Benjamin R. Roberts, U. S. A., who registered in the First election district for the First assembly district. Captain Roberts is now at Governor's island and the arrest was made on ihe ground that he is not entitled to vote from there. Captain Roberts explained to Magistrate Mott that he had b=f>n In the United States army for over thirty- three years; that he had been or the Pacific coast for some time and had recently returned to Governor's island. He contended that the statutes provided that soldiers in the army may vote- from the place they are stationed. Magistrate Mott said that he was right nnd dismissed the case. SKTH LOW OV THE RESULT. Better to Have Fought and Lost Thau Tfot to Have Fought. New York, Nov. 3.— The following statement was given out by Seth Low shortly before midnight: "It is not possible to discuss the results of the election in New York city at the present moment without discrimination. A few things. I think, stand out on the surface of the figures. The year has been a heavy Democratic year everywhere;. Tammany has felt the advantage of this strong tendency. I think this circumstance shows the absolute necessity, if It also shows the difficulty, of separating municipal- from state and national issues, if the cities are ever to be governed on their merits. "In the light of the event it is clear that the Citizens' Union has made a gallant fight for principles that are vital. It is better to have fought and !ost in such a cause than not to have fought at all. There is no need to despair of good government in the city when such a struggle could be mads against such odds. The returns show that there was no possibility of Republican success on contest on party lines, r.or is it easy to imagine a time when In this city there wi!l be. "For the sake of the city I greatly deplore the result, and yet I would urge all whom my voice may influence not to lose heart. We have laid the foundation, it may well be hoped, for future success, and curs is not the first cause that has ' suffered at the outset a heavy reverse, j I bespeak for the new mayor and his j associates the co-operation of a!Imy»up- | porters, as I pledge my own, in an ef- ; fort they may make to administer the government of the city In the Interest of the people." ignorant of the fact that their Own local rulers were changed in the course of Monday, as the accounts of these English elections are only to be seen in obscure corners of the English papers. Interest in the Fif-ht «t Washington. Washington, Nov. 3.—Great Interest was displayed by the citizens of the capital in the result of the elections tlis-niighcut the country. Early last evening large crowds congregated in front of the newspaper bulletin boards and at variuos private places where the returns were displayed. In official circles the interest was intense, and many inquiries were made as to the results, particularly in Ohio and Maryland. In Ihe absence of the president, his secretary and several members of his cabinet there was no gathering- at the White House, where the returns are usually received. Of the members of the cabinet, Secretary Sherman. Secretary Bliss and Postmaster General Gary went to their respective homes to vote and Secretary Alger Is out of the city. MASSACHUSETTS ELECTS WOLCOTT. Boston One More Time Reject* th.e Democratic Tieket—Legislature. Boston, Nov. 3.—For the second tlm« ir to-w years this city, ordinarily strongly Democratic, gave a substantial majority to Roger Wolcott, the Republican candidate for governor at the state election yesterday. There was. however, a decided falling off in the vote for" both candidates, and WoJcott suffered more than Williams. With a lead of 17,000 over his opponent last year the governor this year had a triflle over 5,500 in a total vote of about 58.000. Wolcott's vote of 31,000 this year shows a decrease of 30 per cent, from that" given last year. while the Williams vote of 24,500 shows less than 20 per cent, decrease. The attempt to consolidate the legislative departments o fthe city in a singl* chamber was voted down by a majority of about 6,000. John H. Sullivan, who last year wa« defeated for councillor Isaac B. Allen, a colored man, was elected by a substantial majority over Stanley Ruffan, another colored opponent.. The «lectlo« was remarkable quiet. Returns from all but three of the thirty-three cities and 305 towns, indicate a Republican plurality in Massachusetts of about 88,600. The total vote for Wolcott. the Republican candidate, will be about J6fi.- j 000: for Williams, Democrat, 78,000. an* Everett, National Democrat, of about 13,000. The legislature remain? practl- •«i!ly unchanged. RECEPTION OF THE NEWS ABROAD. London Papers Print Special Telegram* at the New York Election. London, Nov. 3.—All the morning- paper.- print special telegrams from New York city giving the results of the election. The Time?, commenting editorially on the ejection of Judge Robert Van Wyck. a= the first mayor of Greater New York, says: "It is clear that a majority cf the Democrats whom Mr. George wouid have rallied to his standard drifted back in the confusion due to his death to the Tammany camp; while the inability of the Republicans and the reformers to come to terms has j practically given the game over, to the skilled Tammany machine men. "If Mr. Lew had been elected an Interesting experiment would have been ; tried, though even a stronger man than he might 'have found himself overmastered by his environment. We know •what use Tammany will make oj its victory- The merchants and bankers, the wise and cultivated men, the lionest and philanthropic citizens will be as impotent under Croker's domination an the Italian or Hungarian patriots were under Metternich'9 benumbing rule, and •who can deny that 'the people love to have it so?"
