Scott, chairman of the Republican state central committee, made the statement concerning the legislative situation: "It does not avail now to do any claiming- that will not be substantiated by the returns. We have sixteen Republican senators to nine Democratic and one doubtful—the on<? from Calvert—although I am assured that both the Republic-;'.;-. K' r.ator and member of the house were ^;tc;d there. Of the sixteen senators rir.o are holdovers. If we elect the senator from Calvert—and I have no doubt but that we will—we wlli_ have a majority of ei^ht in the senate.

The Republicans claim that their legislative ticket suffered defeat In Hamilton county because of the fear by the reform Republicans—or the fuaionists —that a strongly Republican legislature would reorganize Cincinnati or some of its municipal boards and take from Mayor Tafel, Democrat, recently elected as a fusionist, some of the powers of his office. The Democrats state that the results in Cincinnati and other cities were due to the feeling against "bosses," of whom Senator Hanna was considered the chief, and to factional fights that will be carried into the next session of the legislature on the selection of senator and other matters. Free silver was freely discussed by Bryan and others in the campaign, but neither national nor state issues cut much of a figure. The most prominent issue was Hanna. SIcC'oiiviHe Hopes For the tesislatnre. At both the Republican and Democratic state headquarters figures are being substituted for claims. Although others at Democratic state headquarters concede that the legislature will be Republican on a close majority of one or more Chairman McConvIlle does not concede the control of that body to the Republicans. He said the Republicans claimed the legislature by 75 to TO. He struck the representatives- from Wood arid Xoble counties from their list, also the senator from the Marion-Logan district, and said these three changes would m.ike the legislature stand 73 Democrats to 72 Republicans, and he would never give either of these three doubtful members up till the official count was completed. There are reports that certain arti-Hanna Republicans and Democratic managers have held conferences for S, combine to bring out another man if Governor Bushnell refuses to allow the •use of his name for senator. Republican legislative Claim. At the Republican state headquarters the list of districts is given in which it is claimed that the Republicans have 17 ar d the Democrats 19 senators. The only district disputed by the Democratic- managers is that which Includes Marion and Logan counties, and which would make the senate stand 16 Republicans to 20 Democrats. The Republicans concede that the Democrats will have two majority in the senate, and claim that the returns show the house to stand 58 Republicans, 49 Democrats and 2 doubtful. lower house with doubtful ones as follows: Montgomery, 1; Carroll, 1: Talbot, 1; Calvert, 2. The senate stands 18 Republicans to 9 Democrats, with 1 from Calvert In doubt. The counties heard from and estimates for others give Goldsborough (Rep.) for state comptroller 6.346 plurality. CONCEDES NEBRASKA TO FUSIOX FIGURES OCX 31,783 FI.l-KAI.rrY, That Is TVhat the Iowa Republican Manager Claims as Pretty Sear Correct Des Moines. la., Nov. 4.—The returns by counties are nearly all in now. Chairman McMillan, of the Republican state committee, has complete returns from ninety-four counties and has estimated returns from the five remaining counties. Bj- this means he has figured a plurality for Shaw, Rep., of about 31,782. He thinks that these figures will vary but little as the corrected returns for the five estimated counties come in. The plurality may be set down as above 31,000 and below 32,000. Chairman Walsh, of the Democratic state committee, has given out no figures. He thinks that errors in the returns may reduce the plurality for Shaw to 20.000. The Republican plurality last year was 63,522; according to Republican estimates it is therefore just about cut in two. Two years ago it was 59,090 for Drake for governor. Then the Populists had a separate ticket. If the Populist vote be subtracted the Republicans would have a larger plurality this year than two years ago. The legislature is safely Republican. The senate has fifty members of which thirty-eifrht are Republicans acd twelve Populists and Democrats. The house has 100 members of whom the Republicans have elected sixty-one and the Populists and Democrats thirty-nine. These figures are subject to slight variations, probably to the advantage of the Democrats, but they are essentially safe. The Republicans lost four member* IB the senate and seventeen i Republican Committee Secretary Admit! Defeat, but Hopes for the Regents. Lincoln, Neb., Nov. 4.—The fusion ticket in the state has been elected by a plurality fully as large as that given Bryan last year, if not larger. Early yesterday afternoon it was generally admitted at Republican headquarters that the state was lost, and Secretary Sizer, of the state-committee, emphasized the common belief at 9 o'clock last Bight when he authorized the following: statement: "Returns thus far received by tha Republican state committee point to tha election of Sullivan (fusion) for supreme judge by a plurality of 5,000 to 10,000. Returns show that Republican candidates for regents of the university run ahead of their ticket, and we will not concede their defeat." Chairman Edmisten, of the fusion committee, said he had no reason to cbang-e his estimate of Tuesday night of 20,000 plurality for the entire fusion ticket. Neither of the political headquarters had returns yesterday or last night in quantity, and their estimates were ipi a measure surmise. Omaha, Nov. 4.—Thirty-eight counties, Including Douglass and Lancaster, give Post 43,641. Sullivan 49,101, The same counties last year gave MacCall 50,920, Holcomb 52,04a. Omaha, Nov. 4.—Returns have been received from 46 of the SS countiesof Nebraska, casting more than half the vote of the state. These give: Post, 53,748; Sullivan, 60,133, Last year the same counties gave MacCall 61,457, Holcomb 74.643.

DemocraH Take the Appellate Judge and Gotham, Republicans the Legislature, New York. Nov. 4. — Returns from the state and city elections received yesterday do not change the result announced yesterday. Returns from all the counties in the state indicate a plurality of about 58,000 for Alton B. Parker, Democratic candidate for chief judge of th« court of appeals. His plurality in Greater New York is 133,058. "Van Wyck, Tammany candidate for mayor of New York, has SI, 548 plurality over Scth Low, and 118.401 o% m er General Tracy.

The special election in the Third congressional district. Brooklyn, resulted in a victorj' for Edmund H. Driggs, Democrat, over William A. Prendergast, Republican, by nearly 2,000 majority. Last year Fran-cis Wilson, Republican, was elected in this district by more than 7,500 plurality. He resigned to become poatmas-ter of Brooklyn. Prendergast suffered because of the bitter fight between the Republican factions in Brooklyn.

Mr. Taylor embraced me, saying: 'You and I will bring about peace in Cuba and thus powerfully contribute to the good of humanity and uphold the great interests of civilization by ending the war, the prototype of crime and a return to barbarism.'

"Just prior to these events Mr. Taylor, at lunch in my house and in company with Castelar and others, toasted peace, warmly protesting his admiration and love for Spain, and expressing the desire to see us succeed in the work of pacification. Shortly after the election of President McKinley, when it was mooted that Mr. Sherman would be made secretary of state, I asked Mr. Taylor if Spain would not have reason to fear a man who in a speech • in the senate had displayed such hatred of Spain. Mr. Taylor replied: 'Don't notice that, for Sherman as a responsible minister will change his opinions. Spain has nothing to fear in this respect.' " In conclusion Senator Salvani says: "These ideas and sentiments differ greatly from those attributed to him now."

Vineyard Haven, Mass., Nov. 4.—If tha schooner Fortuna survived a collision which took place early yesterday morning, twenty miles south of Montauk Point, with the schooner Edward E. Briery, three men of her crew ol eight are probably drifting about the ocean south of Long Island on their nearly- unmanageable vessel. Captain Ross, of the schooner who brought the news of the collision, believes that this is the case, although there Is a possibility that the Fortuna was so severely injured that she sank in a short time, In which case the three men went down in he». About 12:45 a, m. the Fortuna suddenly loomed up ahead of the Briery, and in a moment the two vessels came together with a terrifific crash. The Briery lost her entire head gear and the wreckage had to be cut in order to save the hull from further damage. As the two vessels were locked together Captain Chase, of the Fortuna, with the first and second mate, the cook and one seaman, managed to climb on board the Briery without stopping to ascertain- just what damage their boat had sustained, and a heavy sea parted the vessels before the three remaining men of the Fortuna could follow. Another bug» surge swept the two vessels farther apart and soon the Fortuna was lost altogether in the darkness.
