D, 111., Nov. fi.--The full vov-o of Illinois, official, unofficial and estimated, indicates tho election of Ambcrg, Rep., for State Treasurer, by a plurality of about 10,000 over Wilson, Dem. Edwards. Rop., for Superintendent of 1'ublic Instruction, has a plurality of 8,000 over Rnab, Dom. The following arc the Congressmen- elect from the State: First district,, Abnur Taylor, RD;>. ; Second, LowreiiBC V. McG:i-nn, Dem.; Third, Allen E. Durborow, Dom.; Fourth, Walter C. Nowberry, Dem.; Filth, Albert J. Hopkins, Kep.; Sixth, Robert F. Hitt, Rep.; S-sventh, Thomas J. Henderson, Hop.; Eighth, Charles A. Hill, R?p.; Ninth, H. W. Snow, Dcrj.; Tenth, Philip S. Post, Rep.; Eleventh, Benjamin T. Cubic-, Dem.; Twelfth, Scott VViko, Dem.; Thirteenth, William M. Springer, Dom.; Fourteenth, Owen Scott, Dem.; Fifteenth, S. T. Busey, Dem.; Sixteenth, George W. Fithian, Dom.; Seventeenth, KiUvwd Lano, Dem.; Eiglituonth, William S. Forman, Dom.; Nineteenth, Jiimea R. Williams, Dem.; Twentieth, George W. Smith, Rep. Twelve Democratic Congressmen means a gain of 5 for the Democrats, as in tho present House thoir represonta- tion is 7 to 13 Republicans. As will bo Kobl °' seen, Cannon is defeated by Busey in the Fifteenth district. The latter's majority is 518. The vote throughout the State, as compared with that of 1888, is 281,100 short. Great interest has been felt in Illinois in the outcome of the vigorous canvass which General John M. Palmer has made for the election of the majority of the General Assembly on joint ballot. Early in Juno tho Democrats, departing from thoir usual custom, named General Palmer in State convention as the Senatorial candidate against Charles B. Farwell, the present incumbent, and General Palmer has made a personal canvass of the State in behalf of his party. Both parties are claiming a majority on joint ballot and the Democrats are hopeful of electing General Palmer to succeed Senator Farwoll. Tho Republican State Central Committee insists that it will control the General Assembly by 5 or 6 on joint ballot, but the Democrats as vigorously insist that they will have a majority of from 1 to 3. The result is still in doubfc, and must remain so until tho official returns are in, although the probabilities are that the Republicans will have a bare majority on joint ballot. CHICAGO, Nov. 6.—Latest returns indicate the defeutof Congressman Frank Lawlor, Democratic candidate for sheriff, by Gilbert, whose majority is estimated at less than 1,000. The one rpsult of the election over which everybody agrees was the voting I'f the $5,000,000 of bonds in aid of the world's fair. The Chicago Congressional districts will for the next two years stand in the proportion of three Democrats to one /Republican. In tho First Abnor Tay; lor defeats E wing by nearly 1,000. Mr. La\sier's bailiwick in the Second has been handed over to Mr. McGann; Dur' burow defeats Mason in the Third and -.General Nowberry has a majority of 500 .over Adams in the Fourth district. INDIANA. INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., Nov. 0.— Estimates baaed on returns from over half tho precincts in tho State give Democrats a plurality of about 15,000. The latent roturns show that the Congressional delegation will oithor stand 11 Democrats and 2 Republicans or 10 Democrats and 3 Republicans. The •following. Democrats are certainly elected: J. Li. m-«tz, Socond district; Jason Brown, Third; W. S. Holman, .Fourth; George W. Coopar, Fifth; W. D. Bynum, Seventh; C. A. McClollan, Twelfth; E. V. Bookshire, Eighth; David Patton, Tenth; A. N. Martin. Eleventh; 15. F. Suivoly, Thirteenth. 'The Republicans known to be elected are: Henry M. Johnson, Sixth; Daniel Waugh, Ninth. Conflicting reports come from the First district, where W. F. Parrett is the Democratic •candidate and H. F. Wright the Republican candidate. Chairman Michener, of tho Republican committee, received a telegram saying that Wright was elected by 500 majority, but the Democratic committee disputes this. From tho best information at hand it is believed that the Democrats will have a majority of not less than 40 on joint ballot in the Legislature. This (Marion) county is Democratic by 2,500 or 3,000. The Second ward, tho one in which President Harrison voted, #ave a net Democratic gain of 102. The Democrats, of course, attribute the great victory to the McKinley law. Chairman Michener says three sources operated—general apathy of the Republicans, dissatisfaction with President Harrison's Administration and tho false impression among tho people that the McKinley law would increase prices all along the line. WISCONSIN. MILWAUKEE, Nov. 6.—George W. Peck »nd tho ontiro Democratic Stuto ticket is elected by a plurality of from 20,000 to 30,000 votes. The Democrats gain five Congressmen, which will make the representation from the State seven Democrats to two Republicans, exactly reversing the present representation. Tho Republicans will lose a United States Seualor, as tbe Democrats will have a majority of at least 22 on joint ballot in the Legislature. This may be increased. The Democrats have the State Senate by a majority of 3. The defeated Congressmen are LaFollette, Thomas, Clark .and MeCord, all of whom took an active pa?, t in passing tho McKinley tariff bill. The only Republican Congressman re-elected is li.iughen in the Eighth district, while Cooper, the successful candidate in the First district, i never buein io Congress. will be about as follows! First ••district) H. A? Codper, Rep.; Second,; Charles, Bin-wig, Dem.; Third, A. ft. BushneHf Dem.! Fourth; John L. Mitchell, Dem.; Fittn, George 15. BrieUner, Dem,; Sixth, L. B.

CINCINNATI, Nov. 6.—According to the returns so far as received at 0 o'clock last' evening the Ohio Congressmen elected are: First district, Bellamy Storer, Rep.; Second, John A. Cald- woll, Rep., Third, George \V. Fourth, Dem.; M. K. Gontz, Fifth, Fred C. Lay ton, D^ra.: D. D. Donavln, Dem.; Seventh, Ilaynes, Dom.; Eighth, D. D. Dem.; Ninth, J. H. Outhwaite, Tenth, Robert E.

The Republican com- mittoe concede the defeat of McKinley, Rep., for Congress by about 200 and Foster, Rep., by 75 or 100. From official and unofficial returns received from all tho counties of tho State except Ashland, Columbia, Coshocton, Jackson, Marion, Medina, Monroe, and Tuscarawas, and estimating thorn tho same as they were last year 'on the vote for Governor, the plurality of D. J. Ryan, Republican candidate for Secretary of State,is 15,129 I'KNNSYLVANIA. PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 6. -Tho latest returns from 23 Congressional districts of the State show the election of 18 Republicans and 10 Democrats. The present delegation from this State stands 21 Republicans and 7 Democrats. Complete but unofficial returns from every county in tho State give Pattison, Dem., for Governor, a plurality of 16,299 over Delamater, Rep. The Republican candidates. for Lieutenant-Governor and Secretary oJ Internal Affairs, Messrs. Watres ant Stewart, are no doubt elected, as both ran far ahead of Dolamator in nearly every county. Of 20 State Senators voted for tho Democrats elected 10 anc the Republicans 10. Twenty Repub licans and 4 Democrats hold over. IOWA. DES MOINES, la., Nov. 5.—Only one- third of tho State had been heard from at 8:30 p. m. Wednesday, but indications are that the State has gone Democratic on State officers by small pluralities. The Democrats will elects Congressmen in the First, Second, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth and Ninth districts, and tho Republicans in the Third, Seventh, Eighth, Tenth and Eleventh districts. Colonel Henderson is ro-elected. Returns from one-third of the State show Democratic gains sufficient, if continued, to wipo out the Republican majority of two years ago and give a small Democratic majority. MICHIGAN. DETKOIT, Mich., Nov. 0.—The indications are that the Democrats have elected their Governor by about 10,000 plurality and the rest of the ticket by a substantial vote. The Republicans are conceding only the defeat of their gubernatorial candidate and hold tho they will elect the rest of the State ticket. Tho State Senate will bo close, bu,t up to tho present time shows a Democratic majority of three. Tbe Republicans concede the House, which the Democrats claim by 15 majority. In the Congressional election the Democrats havo probably elected their candidates in tho First, Second, Fifth, Seve-nth and Tenth districts. The Congressional districts in Michigan last election, with the exception of the First and Seventh, returned Republican Congressmen. The Third and Eleventh and propably the Fourth districts have gone Republican. NEW YORK. NEW YOIJK, Nov. 6, — Franeis M. Scott, tho defeated candidate top mayor on the Fusion ticket, speaking o-f the election, attributed his defeat to the an ti-McKinley feeling, which he said was stronger in this city than in any part of the country. MASSACHUSETTS. BOSTON, Nov. 6.—The vote for Governor has now been received from every town in the State except Gosnold and the figures show an overwhelming victory. The plurality is 9,850. The Democrats D. T. Trefrey Audi- Charles R. Ladd, the present incumbent, by about 8,000 plurality, but the Republicans elect Lieutenant-Governor, Secretary of State, Treasurer and Attorney-General. The Republicans elect 7 councilors, the board's political complexion remaining unchanged. The Senate will consist of 21 Republicans and 19 Democrats, and the House will comprise 39 Republicans, 100 Democrats and Independent Democrat This is a Republican loss of 8 in tbe Senate and 23 in the House. The Congressional delegations stands 7 Democrats and 5 Republicans. CALIKOKNIA. SAN FKA.NCTSCO, Nov. 6.—The total votes in 709 precincts throughout the State, including tbe 80 in this city, give Markam, Rep., for Governor 57,459; Pond, Dem., 50,778. These constitute returns from little over one-third of the total number of precincts. Tho Democrats concede the election of the eatire State Republican ticket The returns arc too incomplete to make any accurate estimate, but with the present Republican majority in tho State Senate the Republicans are sure of a safe majority in the Legislature. The election of a Republican to succeed Stanford in the United States Senate is assured. Returns from tho 0 Congressional districts of the State indicate that tht> Republicans have carried every dis- srict. MINNESOTA. ST. PAUL. Minn., Nov. ti.—Chairman Campbell, of tbe Democratic State Cen- 1; Democratic for Russell elect W. tor over Ohoien vheir ______ tary of State and, Auditdr, leaving the remainder of the State in datlfcfc Chair! man Iloatwole of the Kopublican committee oi'aims Governor Morriam's re- lection by 1,COO, but admits that part of tho State ticket is defeated. The Democrats eleot 'W. H. Harris to Congress in the First district ).y a majority ol 1,800, O. M. Hall in the Third by 2,400 and J. N. Castle in the Fourth by 5,600. The Second district returns John Lind, Rep., by 3,200. Tho greatest surprise pf the election was the Fourth district, comprising the Twin Cities, which gave Snider 10,000 majority two years ago and defeated him Tuesday by 5,500. Alonzo J. Whiteman, Democratic candidate for Congress in tho Fifth district, telegraphs that ho is elected by 1,000 plurality. Baker, tho Alliance candidate in tho Second district, also claims his election by 700. KANSAS. KANSAS CITY, Mo., Nov. 6. —Tho Republican candidate for Governor probably beaten; six out of seven Republican Congressional candidatesdofeatod; Senator Ingalls' re-election a subject of grave doubt. That is tho situation in Kansas. There was a land-slide, a regular avalanche, in Kansas. Eighty-two thousand Republican majority was overwhelmed by resistless force and buried beneath its destructive weight The Farmers' Alliance did it, and it was a genuine surprise. For tho first time in many years the Republican delegation is broken to fragments. Only one Republican escaped the wreck, and he is the Hon. E. H. Funston from tho Second district The Democrats were successful, and phenominally so, in the First district, electing Thomas Moonlight, Dem., over Case Broderiok Rep., by 10,000 majority. The Farm era' Alliance carried tjie other five dis< tricts, electing Clover over Perkins in the Third, Oils over Kelly in the Fourth, Davis over Phillips in the Fifth. Baker over McNall in thi Sixth and Simpson over Hollowell in tho Sev enth. The Kansas delegation wil stand: Republicans, 1; Democrats, Farmers' Alliance, 5. Later returns from the Second districts indicate that the election of Funston. R., is in serious doubt. The Far mers' Alliance claims a majority of 30,000 on the State ticket, but this is not conceded by the Republicans. It is said that 10 of the anti- Prohibition Republicans elected to the Legislature are pledged to vote for Senator Ingalls. A special from Topeka says that the Republicans only claim 32 out of the 125 members of tho State Legislature, and that several of those are not surely elected. According to this Ingalls would have only 72 votes on a joint ballot, there 1 "-ing 40 State Senators who are pledged to him. It takes 83 votes to elect. Tho official count, however, may change these figures materially. A private dispatch received at Republican headquarters at midnight from Leavenworth states that Moonlight, the Democratic candidate for Congress from the First district, concexles the election of Broderick, Rep., by e-ver 300 majority. NEBRASKA. LINCOLN, Neb., Nov. 6.— James E, Boyd, Democratic candidate for Governor, carries this (Dowglaa) county by o-ver 12,000, with three 1 more preciacts unreportod, which will probably increase his majority i<y 13,000. It is doubtful whether Richards, Rep., will bo able to overcome it iro the rest of th-e State. Tho balance of ti*o Republican State ticket is in doubt Reports on Legislature are incomplete. The latest returns indicate tha-t. prohibition is defeated by over 40,000. Charles Ogdon, of the State Democratic Central Committee, claims Boyd's election by from 5,000 to 7,000 plurality. Ho claims all the Congressmen and the entire State ticket. Tho Republican State Central Committee claims Richards' election by a small plurality. It this claim proves a well-founded reality tho whale Republican State ticket is elected. Bryan, Dem., is elected to Congress from the First district, and McKeighan, Dem. and F. A., from the Second district. Not enoug-b returns are in from the< Third district to indicate results, but it is claimed Ixy the Republicans that Dorsey is elected. SO-UTH DAKOTA. IluiiON, S. D., Nov. (5. -The Democrats and Independents claim that Mellette has boea defeated for Governor. The Independents say Loucks has. won and the Democrats claim the office for Taylor. The Republicans. have lost heavily in all parts of the State. The- Legislature will be nearly equally divided between the three parties. Gamble and Pickler, bech Repub^ o'f'the's'executive i licaas - bave been elected to. Congress. Woman suffrage is defeated by 8,000, while the vote of the State will be 5,.000 less than last year. It may require tbe official cownt to determine the capital contest, which is very close between Huron and Pierre. The total vote in tho State will not likely exceed 70..000. The Independents havo elected 92 members of the Legislature, and kayo returns from 18 counties v.'hicb give Loucks, Ind., 2,000 pJuralit/ over Taylor, Dem., and Meliete, Rep., for Governor, and claim these figures can not be- overcome by either of louck's opponents. NOKTH DAKOTA. ST. PAUL, Minn., Nov. 6.— la North Dakota the Republicans elected Congressman and State ticket by from 3.00& to 4,000. Scarcely any returns have been received from South Dakota and nothing is known about that State. NEVADA.. CAUSON, Nev., Nov. 6. —The iadica- _.__. tions are that C^lcord, the Republican j pi a tc. candidate for Governor, has bees elected, and that Bartine, Re-p., for Congress has carried the State by 1,000 majority. CO LOU A IX}. DENVER, Col., Nov. 6.— Returns so far received from outside counties give the head of the Republican ticket a plurality of 1,753.

Louis, Nov. 6.—In this State the Democrats send a full delegation to Congress, they elect the State ticket and will have a joint ballot in the Legislature by a large majority. Returns are corning in slowly and several days will elapse before the full and official vote can bo given. The chairman of the Democratic State Committee places Bland's, Dem., majority in the Eleventh at 3,000, Wilson, Dom., in the Fourth at 1,500 and Byrn's in, the Tenth at 1,500. The Democrats, he said, would have a majority of probably 74 on joint ballot in tho Legislature, and that they had elected their State ticket by at least 40,000. If the Democrats have a majority on joint ballot in the Legislature, and there is little doubt of that, it will assure the return of Senator George G. Vest. KENTUCKY. LOUISVILLE, Ky., Nov. 6.—There is little change in tho election situation. Tho latest report shows that Congressman John II. Wilson, Rep., has been re-olccted in tho Eleventh district by 2,000 majority. J. W. Kendall, Dem., has a majority of 24 in nine counties, and 1,175 Democratic majority at the last election in the remainder of the district. Tho men certainly elected are Congressmen W. C. P. Breckinridge, James B. McCroery, W. W. Dickerson, T. 11. Paynter, A. B. Montgomery, ! Asher G. Caruth, W. T. Ellis, I. H. Goodnight and W. J. Stone. VIRGINIA. RICHMOND, Va., Nov. 6.—Further returns from tho election in this State leave no doubt that 10 Democratic Congressmen are elected. The Democratic gains were 11,012 and Republican gains 1,308. TENNESSEE. NASHVILLE, Tenn.. Nov. C.—These Congressmen are elected: Second district, Leonidas C. Houk, Rep.; Third, Henry C. Snodgrass, Dem.; Fourth, Benton McMillin, Dem.; Fifth, James D. Richardson, Dem.; Sixth, Joseph E. Washington, Dem.; Seventh, Nicholas N. Cox, Dem.; Eighth, Benjamin A. Enloo, Dom.; Ninth, Rice A. Pierce, Dem.; Tenth, Josiah Patterson, Dem. TEXAS. DALLAS, Tex., Nov. 0.—Returns show the Democratic State ticket and Congressmen are elected. Hogg, candidate for Governor, runs behind tho ticket several thousand owing to the opposition to his anti-railroad policy. ARKANSAS. LITTLE; ROCK, Ark., Nov. C.—Democrats claim the election of Breckinridgo by a small majority. Republicans still claim the election of Langley in the First district. Featherstone, Rep., is probably elected. Terry, Dom., is elected by a large majority in the' Fourth district WKST VIRGINIA. WHEELING, W. Va., Nov. 0.—Although no official returns whatever have been received from the interior of the* State enough is known- to say that the Democratic tidal wave which swept over the country did not miss West Virginia. The result is that a solid Democratic delegation to Congress has been elected—nam-ely: John O. Pendleton, First district? William L. Wilson, Second district; John D. Alderson, Third district, and James Capehart, Fourth district. Tb© Legislature will have a Democratic majority of about 5 in tho lower House and tho Senate wtlil be a tie. NORTH CAROLINA. RALEIGH, N. C., Nov. G.—The Demo*- eratie State ticket was-elected by about. 50,000 majority as far- as can be estimated. Since returns from 535 pro-- eincts—one-third of al!5 in the State— give Morrimon, Dorm, candidate for Chief Justice, a net gain of 17,000. Republican Chairman Eaves says the Democratic majority will exceed 40,000 CAUSED A MlMourl Jndjre ffctnliy Shoot* a Colonel in afl flle«Hlt»n Qfiftrrel-B&tli Al-c Prom* lies ffn Illinois on! State Treasurer, Itintf'tenths of Which are official and the remilindei'. carefully estimated, show a plurality for Wilaon, Dom., 6ver Amberg, Rep., of 8,400. The counties from which no returns have been received Will n6t affect the general result materially. Returns and estimates frbm the same counties on Superintendent of Public Instruction indicate the election of Raab, Dem., over Edwards, Rep., by a plurality of 85,445. Harrison's majority in the State in 1888 was 22,000. The News says: From returns at hand it appears that the Illinois Legislature is likely to ho a "tie-up," to rival the session of 1S85. Official and otherwise reliable returns show that the Senate is composed of 27 Republicans and 24 Democrats; tho House of 74 Republicans, 76 Democrats and 8 Farmers' Mutual Benefit Association representatives. It is not at all probable that those figures will be changed. WISCONSIN. MILWAUKEE, Nov. 7.—"It has reached 35,000 already, and with the counties still to be heard from may go to 45,000," is what the Democratic managers say of Governor-elect Peck's plurality in the State. The Republicans are content to await tho official returns and have given up figuring, and so they are not prepared to dispute the Democratic claims. Complete returns have been received from less than one-half the counties of tho State thus far. The Democrats now concede tho Republicans two of the nine Congressmen from tho State. The two districts where the Republicans are successful are the First and Eighth. Tho Democrats claim 69 Assemblymen, as against 29 Repiiblicans, and also 18 of the 83 Senators. Among the names mentioned as candidates for Senator Spooner's seat are W. F. Vilas, Gil Woodward, George W. Pratt, General Bragg, John Winans, Governor-elect Peck, "Gabe" Bouck, R. M. Bash ford, S. A. Pinney, Burr W. Jones and George W. Bird. INDIANA. INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., Nov. 7.—It appears that the Democratic majority in the State will reach 15,000, and it is claimed that it will go higher. Parrett has certainly been elected in the First district, and the Congressional delegation stands 11 Democrats and 2 Republicans. In the Lpgislature the Democrats will have a majority on joint ballot of 64. IOWA. DES MOINES, la., Nov. 7.—Semi-official returns from 74 counties give McFarland 145,607; Chamberlain, 145,152; net majority for McFarland, 555. The remaining 25 counties in 1889 gave a Republican majority of 065. The Republican committee claims that the 200 precincts yet to hear from will make McFarland's majority at teast 3,500. Tbe indications are- that the next Congressional delegation from Iowa will bo as follows: First district, Seerley, Dem.; Second, Hayes, Dom.; Third, Henderson, Rep.; Fourth,Butler, Dem.; Fi£th, Hamilton, Dem.; Sixth, White, Dem.; Seventh, Hayes, shortl term, and Hull, full term, both Reps,; Eighth, Flick, Rop.: Ninth, Bowman, Dem.; Tentih, Deliver, Rep.; Eleventh Perkins, Ret>. MICHIGAN. DETKOIT, Mich., Nov. 7.—It is thought the whole Democratic ticket is elected by from 6,000 to 15,000 plurality. The Legislature-is also Democratic, tho Senate by abou.t 3 majority and the House by some 15 on a fusion vc to with Patrons of Industry;, who hold the balance of power. According" to the best figures at hand the Michigan 1 delegation to Congress is as follows: First district,, J. L,. Chipman, Dem.; Socond. J. S. Gorman, Dem.; Third, James. O'Donnell, Rep.; Fourth, J. C. Burrows, Rep.;. Fifth,. M. H. Ford, Dem,;• Sixth, Byron 0. Stout, Dem.; Seventh, J. H, Whiting, Dem.; Eighth, H. M. Youmuns, Dem..;. Ninth, H. H. Wheeler, Dem.; gins, judge of th& Pettls County court, shot arfd fatally wounded tkirtoftei thorn* fts B. Price, &>rlch stock -raiser of Sweet Springs, Mo., at 5 o'clock Thursday afternoon. The shooting took place on a Missouri Paciflo train, which was going at the rate of thirty miles an hour, and the passengers were terrified almost to a panic by it. Colonel Price tried to save himself by a defense with his cane, but tho judge flrod quickly. Both men had been in Sedalia on business and took the 4:80 train for their homes. Colonel Price met Judge Higgins in the parlor cur, and, after chatting awhile, the question of tho judge's recent defeat for renomination to the bench came up and was discussed. The judge accused Price of working against him and Price indignantly denied the charge. The train had just pnssed Georgetown and tho discussion had arisen to fever heat. The passengers expected trouble, but never dreamed the judge meant to do any shooting. The lie was passed, and quick as a winlr Judge Iliggins drew his revolver and fired. It is said that Colonel Price was demonstrative and forced the shooting, but this is undecided. Tho ball from Judgo Iliggins' weapon entered Colonel Price's body in the lower part of tho abdomen, passing through and lodging just under the skin 'near the back-bone. The passengers were terrified and no attempt was made to take the weapon away from the furious judge, who stalked up and down tho aisle of the swiftly-moving train like a mad man, the smoking revolver still in his hand. Colonel Price slipped down on to his seat and then on the floor. In five minutes he was unconscious and there was only a faint pulse. Among the passengers there was no one with the idea of medicine or surgery, and the unfortunate man remained on the car floor, bumping along at the rate of thirty miles an hour, until the next town was reached. He was taken from the train at Houston! a, a small town on the edge of the county, where several doctors began work on him. It was impossible to restore consciousness, and the pulse became slower. Colonel Price is a prominent figure in State politics. He is president of the Gazette Printing Company of Sedalia, and is owner of th» celebrated Vondale stock-farm, being the largest stock- raiser in this section. Colonel Price is a. son of Colonel Tom Price and a grandson of General Sterling Price, of tbe Confederate and Mexican wars. He is a brother of Congressman Price, of Louisiana. Judge Iliggins is wsil known and quite wealthy. He is at present judge of the Pettis County court at Sedalia. The affair has created intense excitement there among the friends of the two men, and some trouble may result over it r as the feeling for both is very high. Higgles gave himself up< to the authorities at Houstonia, and tho sheriff here received a message summoning him to go after the prisoner at once, as fears of-' lynching are entertained. said may reach 50,000. The Legislature ' Tenth, T. A. E. WeadcoeU, Dem.; Eleventh^, M. Democratic ma- Stevenson, Repv. will have tho heaviest Democratic majority on record. From* no district have full ofSsial returns of the Congressional vote yet been received; but those in hand show that tho Democrats elect eight Congressmen. THE HESULT KLSjTWHKHE. la Montana the result between Thomas H. Carter, Regt, and W. W. Dixon, Dem., for Congress is so close that Ofstly the official count can determine who is elected. Tlie Republicans have ejected 5 of 8 State- Senators, thus imsurhvg the election of'a United States Senator a year hence. Complete returns from 111 precincts in Washington give Wilson, Rep., for MINNESOTA. ST.

KANSAS Sixv, Mo., Nov. 7.—An estimate of the result of the election in Senate aad i Kansas so far as it affects the complex.- yeairs. Complete returns from tbe whole State of Delaware giw Reynolds, Dem., fov- Governor, 445 majority and Causey, Dem., for Congress, 514 majority. The next Legislature wiJl stand: Senate— Democrats, 5; Republicans, 4. House— Democrats, 14; Republicans, 7. There is uo United Sta-tes Senator to be elected. The State ticket is in doubt in Connecticut, and both parties are claiming it.
