Jliat Both Parties Are Applying to tha Courts to Protect Their KiRhts—Kepub- licans Have the Votes on the Face of th« Returns, It Seems—Keraarkably Small Number of liallou That Would Have Changed the Result — Mju-yland Id to Have a Republican senator. Columbus, Nov. 4.—Late last night it became known that the courts would be resorted TO for the purpose of preventing boards of election from issuing' certificates to the Republican candidates for the legislature in certain counties. The cases will be brought in the lower courts and thence to the supreme court as soon as possible. The Republican state committee also has lawyers preparing cases of contest. The Republicans get three representatives on the face of the returns form Delaware, Noble and Wood counties whose tiluralitiea aggregate only U2 and a change of 72 votes would have given the Democrats control of the legislature. The Republicans claim that the Democrats also elected members of the legislature on close margins; that there were ten counties in the state that gave less than 100 plurality each for their candidates for the legislature and that the Democrats secured as many members on these small pluralities as the Republicans. Both sides are preparing for contests first in the courts and afterward in the legislature. Republicans Have an Advantage. As each branch of the legislature is the tribunal of last resort in judging o£ the qualifications of its members the Republicans have an advantage,in their control of the house, over the Demo- cratst, who control the senate. There are 36 senators, with only two or three contests possible in that body. In the house there are 105 members, with a dozen or more seats that can be contested, and the Republicans claim a majority of 7 in that body so that more Democrats could be unseated in the house than -Republicans in the senate, "While both committees are keeping secret any arrangements for legal proceedings it is stated that the Democratic state committee will seek to enjoin enough certificates of election from Republican rep- repentatives to prevent the Republicans from organizing thehou?e and appointing the committee that will consider contests. Developments are expected to- against'me;- Croker aSded, says Stead "If you intend to write about me, please Bay that Tammany must give New York the best government It ever had. New York is the Ideal city of the world and that is the future watchword for Tammany." Stead proceeded: "It is a great vindication of Tammany and Croker, and Jtives them a wonderful opportunity, though It does rot wipe out the slate o£ the past. Nothing could erase ths Lexow revelations; but many men who, struggling to the front, sometimes find it necessary to do shady things to get there, would be superior to such temptations after having- achieved position. Becky Sharp said 'It is easy to be virtuous on a thousand a year.' Tammany and Croker l.iave got the thousand a year. The election must give a great Impetus to Bryanism." About the election generally Stead was quite cheerful, saying: "The Chicago platform minus the nonsense about free silver—If that is what Tammany's victory mean:;—won't scare the English. To m03t of us in the old country your plutocrats seem a much greater menace to the commonwealth than the Democrats, ever, if they do swear by Croker and Tammany Hall. The Republican campaign fund staggered us much more than the victory of Van "Wyck." Use Logan Milling Co.'s Flours Patent and Automatic.

NEW YORK. day in the policies of both parlies so far as appealing to the courts are concerned. Protests in All Three Counties. The official count from the Delaware county is in, but with protests and notices of contest from the Democrats, and the same is true of Noble county. The official count of Wood county may not be completed till tomorrow, although they expect to get through today. In Wood county the Democrats proteste against counting the vote of a precinc where the place of voting was outsid of the precinct but within the ward Had this precinct been thrown out i would have elected the Democratic can didate for representative by a plurality of 5, instead of the Republican candi date by US. The vote of the precinc was counted and the Democratic protes filed. Other technicalities are expected in the progress of the vote in tha county. In Noble county there was a long contest over 27 scratched ticket that were finally thrown out because they were not properly marked. This was a Republican loss. Every point is being contested in the official ci>unt of the close counties. Claims of the Two Chairmen. Chairman Nash said last night tha' the Republicans have a safe majority of 5 on joint ballot in the legislature He admits that the pluralities are small in some counties, but claims they are safe. He has no doubt of the result in any of the counties which he claims except possibly Wood county. Chairman McConville does not adroit that the Republicans have carried the Thirteenth district for their candidate for state senator, and he still claims the representatives from Noble, Delaware, Wood, Muskingum and other counties claimed by the Republicans. He also expects the official count to give the Democrats two of the twelve members of the legislature from Cuyahoga county. McConville charges fraud in the close counties- and in some Republican counties. MEAN'S GORMAN'S RETIREMENT. Definite Figures as to the Standing; of the Maryland Legislature. Baltimore, Nov. 5.—An official count the ballots cast on Tuesday last, made in most of the counties yesterday, leaves no further room for doubt that the Republicans have control of both branches at the legislature and that a Republican Will succeed Arthur P. Gorman in the United States senate. Five members of the assembly and one senator were taken from the Democratic list of probabilities and added to that of the RiSupblicans. Three of the members and the senator are from Talbot county and one member each from Prince Georges and Carroll. This gives the Republicans 49 members in the house and the Democrats 42. It also gieves the Republicans IS senators to S for the Democrats and a majority on joint ballot of 17. The result in Talbot county arose from thefactthat eighteen votes in Tilghman precinct were found tohavebeencounted twice for the Democratic ticket. This being corrected gave the Republican legislative candidates majorities ranging- from 16 to 19 votes. In Prince Georges a similar correction elected Underwood, Rep., by 4 votes, while in Carroll, the recount showed that Stansbury, Rpp., defeated Grouse, Dem., by23 votes. The doubtful votes in Montgomery and Washington counties also went Into the Republican column by small majorities. The Democratic state headquarters were closed yesterday, but before he left the chairman said the official returns would be required to settle the status in the legislature.

Legislature—Stead's View of the Matter. New York, Nov. 5.—Complete returns from all counties in the state except CaUaraugrus, Greene, Steuben and Tales show a. plurality for Alton B.

Ijondon, .Xov. 5.—An Englishman who does no: cherish a totally gloomy view of the result of Hie recent election in Greater New York is William T. Stead, the well-known newspaper man 'who recently figured in the public eye here, as the sponsor of Richard, Croker in a somewhat flattering pen portrait of that csted Tammany chieftian. Stead ga-re his views to a representative of the Associated Press yesterday IB original phrases such as characterize his utterances. Croker, it appears, while conversing with Stead predicted that the Tammany majority would be 100,000 votes, adding: "It I were to run for I should want all the cew*D*»«ii-1 Unofficial Totals in Iowa. Des Moines, la., Nov. 5.—The unofll- (tf-'il totals for governorare: Shaw (Rep.), 21M,5!J5; White (Dem.), 193.567; Populist, middle-of-road, 5,950; gold Democrat, 5,434; Prohibitionist, 10,692. The total vote is 440.19S, in spite of the stay-at- home vote. Shaw's plurality is 30,988. His total vote is the largest ever cast for a Republican candidate for governor, being 16,000 higher than the highest before. It is also higher than the vote ca.st for any Republican candidate for president in this state except the vote for McKinley last year. The Democrats have only once polled a bigger vote— when Boies was a candidate in 1S91. Oft"-Year Effect in Kentucky. Louisville, Nov. 5.—Election returns in the recent contest for clerk of the court of appeals are coming in slowly. Those from heretofore missing precincts in the state raise Shackeiford's (Silver Democrat) plurality to 20,000 in round numbers, or to be exact 19,224, with 3S7 precincts out of 1,774 miasing. The counties which have reported the vote in full make the total for the state 263,971, and when all are in the total will hardly go over 300,000. This shows a tremendous falling off from last year's vote—when a grand total of 445,775 was cast—even for an off-year. Senator-Elect Voight Non-Commtttal. Cincinnati. Nov. 5.—Senator-Elect Lewi? Voight, one of the independent Republicans electee! in Hamilton county, was asked how he stood on political matters. Voight replied: "I am 3. Republican. 3. sound money man, and furthermore I am a supporter of the present national administration." But he would not go into the Republican caucus: he would not say whether he would .•ote for its nomineeor whether he would, vote for Hanna; he would only saj r that 10 would vote for a Republican for United States senator. Several Very Seriously—Engineer Terribly Crushed and One of the Dead Cut to Pieces—Locomotive Butts a Cliff and Curs Rush Down an Kmbankiuff.it to the River—Five Men Burned, Two Fatally, by a 3£olteu Iron Explosion. Charlotteville, Va., Nov. 5.—The Chesapeake ond Ohio vestibule express known as the "F. F, V." "from Cincinnati to Washington, was wrecked near Old Shadwell, five miles east of this place, at 1:25 yesterday afternoon. Four persons were killed and seventeen injured. The dead are: Henry Burnett, colored porter, Keswick, Va.; Italian woman named Merra and infant, believed to be from Cincinnati; Phellx. Mareno, (died alter removal to Charlotteville).

It is reported that the body of another Italian child is under the wreck, but this cannot be confirmed. Left the Trutk on a Curve. The cause of the acident has not been definitely ascertained, but the local railroad officials, after investigating, declared that it was not due to spreading rails (as had been first reported), though they are unable to give even a theory. Tftey state that the tracks at the spot are true and examination revealed that they are tied securely. The engine left the track on a sharp curve and was hurled against a rocky hill. All of the cars except the dining- car and the Richmond sleeper were derailed. Two cars plunged end-foremost down the steep embankment, and one of them,<:ent into the RIvanna. river, which at this place skirts the tracks. The day passenger coach and the express car were badly wrecked. As the locomotive plunged from the rails and overturned, Engineer Duke was hurled from the cab and crushed under the engine, besides being terribly scalded by escaping steam. He was rescued by his fireman and the conductor. Port<r Was Found in Sections. As soon after the crash as possible the uninjured passengers and trainmen began the work' of rescue and aiding the injured. Word was sent to this place and a wrecking train with physicians was immediately dispatched to the scene of the. wreck. The body of Henry Burnett, the colored porter, was the last recovered. He was terribly mangled, having been in the baggage car. A foot supposed to have been his was first recovered, and later a portion of the head. The body was literally dismembered. Mareno had both legs cut off. Among the uninjured passengers on the train were Senator Orville H. Platt, of Connecticut: Commissioner of Pensions H. Clay Evans, and Representative Walter Evans, of Louisville. Later.—It is now stated that the accident was caused by the breaking of an axle of the forward truck of the locomotive. ftcyaf ••*•«• the food part, wk« WMN* POWDER Absolutely tar* JNQ FOWOEJt CO., KtW DONE BY CLEVELAND'S MESSAOt. Cable Company Orxunized to 3t*I» Jo)M Bull Independent of L'uclc SAttl. New York, Nov. 5.—A special cable dispatch from London to The Evening Post yesterday says: "To-day's issue of shares and debentures by tha Direct West Indian Cable company (limited) marks the beginning of the end of England's dependence upon the United Etatesfor cable connection with th« W«sfc Indies. But for President Cleveland'! Venezuelan war message England would probably have been quite content to depend upon the United Statea line* vi» Florida and Cuba, but directly to« officials here realized the possibility of a war with the United States and the consequent isolation of the West Indltm colonies she set about negotiation* tor a line of her own. "The negotiations will result in an imperial subsidy of J40.000 yearly for twenty years to the British-Canadian capitalists who own the HalDTax- Bermuda cable, for its extension from Bermuda to Jamaica and ultimately to other leading West Indian Islandg and South America, The cable will be completed by the first week of February next. As showing the spirit of the new enterprise it may be said that of today's issue of $300.000 in shares and $600,000 in 4% per cent, debentures more than two- thirds were subscribed privately before the issue was offered to the public. A similar imperial undertaking, the Pacific cable project, is still a subject of proposal for a cable to Australia from Vancouver has now been supplemented by a rival project to connect Australia with England via Cape Colony, without touching foreign territory.

Denver, Nov. 5. — There seems little loubt of the election of Gabbert, Fopu- ist. as justice of the supreme court. The Rcckj- Mountain News has specials giv- ng- complete returns of all but six counties. The missing counties are all far 'rom railroads and are but sparselypop- ulated. Estimates have been made of heir vote, and the' result gives Gabbert 1.300 pulrality over Hayt, Rep. The Republican leaders, while admitting that Te=ent returns are unfavorable, do not concede Gabbert's election, Bishop's Daughter in Politics, Syracuse, N. Y., Nov. 5. — Miss Axle S.

Milwaukee, Xov. 5.—An explosion occurred In the works of the Illinois Steel company last evening, caused by molten iron working' throug-h the.jjSre brick of one of the blast furnaces. Five men were injured, two fatally. The fatally injured are: Peter Hundt. and Georg* Kolinski; the seriously injured; Anton Zoycheski, John Kutka and Albert Suckow—all of this city.

The court house walls were cracked and the plaster fell from the Fitihermcii Like It ux Well as Sealer* Lilc* the Proposed Prohibition, Lansing, Mich., Nov. 5.—It looke very much as if the last legislature waited valuable time when it indulged in a protracted discussion of a closed steason for •fish in the great lakes. The legislature finally passed a law establishing a closed season from Nov. 1 to Dec. It, this being the spawning season. The new law has met with decided opposition for the reason that about one-third ot the entire catch of the year is obtained during the six weeks covered by the closed season, there having been no restrictions in the way of season limitations heretofore. The most potent argument advanced in behalf of the new law was that it was necessary, if the white- flsh are to be saved from utter extinction. In view of the fact that the law will work a great hardship on most of the fishermen of the state by reducing their annual catch by one-third, the fishermen EO affected have combined to prevent its enforcement If possible. Thus far the fishermen appear to have the best of the situation. Those at Charlt- voix, Saginaw, Alpena and several other places banded together and raised a fund with which to fig-Jit^ the law. They applied to Circuit Judge Corbett,of Charls- voix, who issued a temporary Injunctlom restraining the state fish warden from interfering in anj' manner with the fishermen In the conduct of their buMnees.
