GREAT PUBLIC INTEREST.
1 lie interest shown bv the public in the
election is only equalled in Presidential
Neal's. At the respective headquarters, in
Ircut of the newspaper offices, around the
tiekrjs, and wherever any information as to
tn result could lie gleaned, great crowds
gathered and cheered as news that pleased
them came in. Madison Square, in front
cl 'he HofTtnati House and Fifth Avenue
Hotel was literally packed with people who
am mwtXitntt S
gazed for hours at the public stereoptioon
that published the figures, and newspaper
row was next to impassable from tbe Herald
office to that of the Sun. Even though it
became evident early in the evening that
Col. Fellows was elected District Attorney
over Nicoll and Post, and that that contest
was probably the one which caused
the most interest among the people,
tbe crowds remained until nearly midnight,
until, in fact, they had little voice left with
which to express their feelings. Notwith
standing the excitement and tiigh feeling
attendant upoh the contest, it was one of
the quietest election days ever known in the
city. At the Republican headquarters the
committee gave up the local contest early,
but continued to claim the Stale for some
time. The Democrats were jubilant all
around. They laid equal claim to victory
for their State ticket, and announced pos
itively by 11 o'clock that they had won a

DEAD MEN ON THE LISTS.
Troy, N. Y., Nov. 8. —The Republican
Inspectors who refused to sign the list be
cause of the presence of alleged crooked
names signed the books this morning under
order of Justice Ingalls. The names of dead
men, etc., were erased in nearly all the
words, except the eighth where the in
spectors still refused at 10 o’clock to sign
the lists, an order not having been served
on them. Yotes were taken in the presence
of all the Inspectors.
Alleged repeaters attempted to vote at
Hoosie Falls this morning and a lively row
ensued, in which the police took an active
part. The town was soon in a ferment, bor
dering on a riot, and the authorities asked
the Sheriff for a posse of deputies to quell

Norfolk, A’a., Nov. 8. —Norfolk city
elects two delegates to the legislature and
Portsmouth one. Portsmouth will go
Democratic as usual. The weather was
cloud}', but pleasant. One precinct in the
Fourth (colored) ward was not
opened until 9:40 o'clock, owing to
the sickness of one of the Democratic
Judges of election, and the Hilling of his
place by a judge not acceptable to the Re
publicans. Congressman George E. Bow
den was arrested shortly after the precinct
opened, while haranguing colored voters,
the Democratic judges ruling that he was
disturbing the peace. Another Republican
politician was arrested for interfering with
the voters in one of the white wards. Both
were released on their own recognizance, to
appear Friday to answer the charge.
Norfolk city elects two Democrats to the
Legislature by 474 majority, and Ports
mouth returns Democratic delegates by 466
majority, Democratic gains in both cities.

A FULL VOTE AT RICHMOND.
Richmond, Va., Nov. B.—The election
was rather quiet, but a large vote was
polled at every precinct. Both Democrats
aud Coalitionists (the latter composed of the
so-called Democratic Reformers and Repub
licans) worked earnestly to bring out the
full vote. A little excitement oc
curred about 10 o’clock this morning
at the Second precinct, in Jackson
ward (the great black warn of the city,
known as Africa), when, at the instance of
ex-Congressman John S. Wise, A. B.
Guigon, a young Democratic lawyer, was
arrested on a charge of unlawfully and
wilfully obstructing voters. Almost imme
diately afterward Wise was arrested on a
similar warrant. Both were taken to the
police station and there bailed for their
appearance at Police Court to-morrow
morning. Guigon was engaged in chal
lenging voters when arrested, and AVise,
who is the leader of the Coalitionists in the
city, was devoting himself to the work of
facilitating the colored vote.
t\ll the newspaper offices and the Demo
cratic and Coalition headquarters and the
streets in the vicinity are filled with crowds
waiting to hear election returns. Unofficial
figures, which will fairly approximate the
official vote, show that twenty of
the twenty-four precincts in Richmond
give over 500 majority for the Democratic
candidates for the House of Delegates. The
remaining four precincts will increase this
majority by from 100 to 2(h). Meagre re

parading the streets with bands and
torches. Bonfires are burning at several
points, and intense Democratic enthusiasm
prevails. Up to this hour about forty cities
und counties of the State have been heard
from. These show that the Democrats have
elected delegate-in thirty counties. They

lap, Rep., 462; Fultz, Proh.. 103. For Del
egate, Crawford, Dem.. has 575; Craig,
Rep., 431; Lyle, Proh., 96. This is a Demo
cratic gain over 1886 of 74. The indications
are that the Democratic ticket carries Au
gusta county by 500 majority.
Winchester, Va., Nov. B.—Winchester

Cincinnati, 0., Nov. 8. —The election in
Ohio to-day was for Governor, Lieutenant
Governor, Judges of the Supreme Court,
Auditor, Treasurer, Attorney General and
member of the Board of Public Works, for
members of the General Assembly and for
county and township officers. There were
tour tickets before the people—Republican,
Democratic, United Labor and Prohibition.
The weather was pleasant all over the State.
In this city a heavy vote was polled. A
woman was at the poll.! in one precinct of
the Twenty-first ward holding tickets for
the Union party.
Sixteen precints in Hamilton county show
a net Republican gain of 912. The vote is
as follows: Foraker 1,954, Powell 1,242,
Seitz 206, Sharpe 5.
Fortv-one precincts show a net Republi
can gam of 1,473.
The absence of the Union Labor vote of
1885 and its large proportion now in Cin
cinnati, causes an increase in the net Re
publican gain given in this county of the
proportion to the total vote. Where the
labor vote has drawn more heavily from
the Democrats thjjn from the Republicans,
which is usually’the case, the Republican
gain is increased, though the Republican
t otal may be decreased. Two hundred and
thirty-nine precincts in Ohio show a net Re
publican gain of 4,108. The total is: For
aker, 33,140, Powell, 25,519; Seitz, 5.083;
Three hundred am' one precincts in Ohio,
about one-seventh of the whole number,
show a net Republican gain of 4.657. The
vote is: Foraker 44,419, Powell 33,929, Seitz
6,403, Sharp 2,123. In Hamilton county the
returns already received show that Foraker
lias carried the county by a majority of
3,000. Some estimates place it higher.
This, in consideration of the reports current
during the day that Powell was receiving
the Union Labor vote, would justify the
conclusion that the entire c-ounty ticket of
the Republicans is elected.
Five hundred and fourteen precincts in
Ohio show a net Republican gain of 5,434.
The vote is as follows: Foraker, 82,428;
Powell, 65,959; Seitz, 9,016; Sharp, 4,745.
The Chairman of the Republican State
Central Committee claims that Foraker’s
plurality will be at least 25,000 over Powell
and that the Republicans will have a ma
jority in both branches of the legislature.
FORAKKR’K PROBABLE PLURALITY.
Cincinnati, 0., Nov. 9,1 a.M. —Four hun
dred and twenty-eight precincts in Ohio show
net Republican gains of 5,074 in a total vote
of 139.440. The greater portion of this gain
is in Hamilton county, while the remainder
of the State is nearly evenly Imlanced. If
the same ratio is maintained Foraker’s plu
rality will lie from 20,000 to 22.000.

will be received to-night. The indica
tions still point to a plurality of from
23,000 to 25,000 for Foraker.
From the best, estimate that can be made
at this hour the Union Labor vote of Ham
ilton county will roach about 12,000 or
13,000. The Prohibition vote in the county
is not more than 1,000.
The Democratic Majority for State
Offices 10,000 or 1:3,000.
Baltimore, Mb., Nov. 9, 1 a. m.—The
election yesterday passed off very quietly
in this city and throughout the State as far
as heard from. There were three tickets—
Democratic, Republican and Prohibition.
There was a falling off in the vote of
this city, but the polls not closing
until 6 o’clock aud a long ticket
made the count very slow. There were few
complaints of repeating, and none of ballot
box stuffing. The officers voted for were
Governor, Attorney General, Comptroller
of the Treasury, State’s Attor
ney, Sheriff, City Surveyor, Associate
Judge of the Supreme Bench of Baltimore,

bers, all Democrats, hold over and
fifteen were voted for. The last
Senate stood 22 Democrats and 4 Republi
cans, and the last House of Delegates stood
81 Democrats and 10 Republicans. The in
dications at I o'clock are that the majority
for F. C. Jackson, Dem., for Governor will lie
from 10,000 to 12,000 over Walter B. Brooks,
Rep., and for W. P. Whytte, Dein., for
Attorney General over Francis Miller,
Rep., and Victor L. Bauchmati, Item., for
Comptroller over R. B. Dixon, Rep., will
be about the same. The Legislature will
be largely Democratic in both branches,
The Prohibition vote was small.
JACKSON RAN BEHIND.
Baltimore, Nov. 9. 1:15 a. m.—The
counting of the vote in Baltimore will not
be completed for sevtral horn's. The indica
tions from the returns received indicate n

all the Democrats are elected. Jackson, for
Governor, ran behind the ticket because of
the opposition of a portion of the Knights
of Labor. The entire legislative ticket in

fall, wheu Bradley had a plurality
of about 600 over Dixon, the then
Republican candidate, a majority being
then necessary to elect. The
bottom fell completely out of the
Prohibition vote, but 292 votes being
cast for Peabody as against over
800 for his predecessor at the regular
election a year ago. There were Republi

of Pawtucket, however, gave a plurality of

of Cumberland returned Horace A. Folett,
Rep., to the State Senate to fill the vacancy
caused by the resignation of the holding
Senator, who was a Democrat.

Des Moines, La, Nov. 8, 8:40 p. m.—The
polls close very late in lowa. Many are not
closed at this hour. The returns will be
late. Twelve precincts reported up to this

WASHINGTON AT THE WIRE.
Great Interest Pelt In the Result of the
Washington, Nov. B.—The State elec
tions of to-day were watched with more
than usual interest in Washington. It was
felt that their results would have more than
usual significance. That in New York was of
course considered the most important. All
the New Yorkers in office, who could possi
bly be spared, went home to vote, and all
who could afford it sent contributions to the
campaign funds. Throughout the after
noon and evening the buffet, ns were
eagerly rend by the curious. The
President received telegrams at fre
quent intervals over the special
wire running into the White House. Sec
retary Fairchild and Private Secretary
Jjamont spent the evening reading the re
turns with him in the library of the White
House. They were all greatly pleased by
the news from New York, and sent tele
grams expressing their gratification to the
successful ltemocratic candidates. They
were also gratified with the result in Phila
delphia. which they had awaited with
especial interest. The returns for Virginia
were also satisfactory. The size of the Re
publican majorities in Ohio and Massachu
setts disappointed them.
A Row at a Communist’s Funeral.
Paris, Nov. B.—Deputations from several
Bocialixt organizations attended the funeral

John Dillon, speaking at a meeting of the
national league, attributed Mr. Balfour’s
persecution of Mr. O'Brien to revenge for
bitter w: rda the latter had used
in attacking the policy of the government.
If Mr. Balfour had a spark of manhood,
said Mr. Dillon, he would have protected ail
honorable opponent from degradation when
he fell into his power. The watchword now
would lie, "Rememberand avenge O’Brien.”
They should shun outrage, but make the
landlords feel their vengence in a practical

The imprisonment of Mr. O'Brien has eer
tainly given the most staggering blow which
the plan of campaign Imd received since it
was started. His absence would lie
severely felt. One blast upon his bugle
horn was worth 10,000 men. [Cheers. 1 The
Government lmd struck a cruel blow by
removing the liost, man the movement had;
but, admitting the present disaster, the peo
ple would be strengthened if Mr. O’Brien’s
spirit lives in their hearts. Irish patriotism
would be further animated to resent the
infamous and cowardly treatment of Mr.
O’Brien, [Cheers. ]
Timothy Harrington said the last words
of Mr. O’Brien on being takeu to jail, were
that he did not care for uuy amount, of de
privation, but would never submit to degra
dation. He told the jailer that the only
prison garb he would lie able’to put on him
without a straggle would lie a shroud

any attempt at violence or suicide. They
were not, allowed to approach any of tka

While the men were exercising each cell
was searched minutely. Nothing suspicious
was disclosed. Miss Van 7, a not and Mrs.
Fischer were the only visitors at the jail ex

church. Miss Van Zandt talked to Spies
three or four minutes with a bailiff within
“He’s like a caged tiger,” said Sheriff
Matson, when I.iugg was taken from his

Two deputies watched him as he strode up
and dow'9 examining the cage with
nervous movement. The jailer took two
clocks from the cells, the only pieces of
metal left to him. As soon ss the search
was over, Lingg was I silted in again.
This is the first, exercise he had
been given since the finding of the bombs.
Eight Ihi skets of grapes ware brought to ths
jail. Nothing edible is allowed to go to the
prisoners from the outside for fear of poison
being conveyed to them. The grapes were

LINGO PROFESSES IGNORANCE.
Anarchist Louis Lmgg was visited in tbi
county jail by Attorney Zoislrr this after*
noon, at the request of Capt. Black, for the
purpose of obtaining from him a statement
m regard to the bombs which were found in
his cell last Sunday. Lingg plumply de
nied in German that ho ha<l any knowledge
of the bombs, and then continuing said:

At. the conclusion of the interview, Liugg
turned away in an unconcerned manner and
coolly began whistling. Capt. Black and
Attorney Zeisler, in company with Nina
Van Zandt, subsequently had a short con
ference with Spies, Fielden and Schwab in
the lawyer’s cage, and obtained a for
mal written declaration that they
had absolutely nothing to do with
the bombs brought to the jail.
Then for the last time Capt. Black visited
Parsons, Fischer anil Engel, in the presence
of Jailer Fob, for the purpose of inducing
them to sign a petition to Gov. Oglesby
asking for mercy. It was all without avail.

last plea—was issued over his signature
to-night. The document is two columns in
length, and is chiefly remarkable for the
absence of any reference whatever to the
massacre at the Haymnrket or to the dyna
mite idea. Parsons addresses the letter to a
locally prominent Socialist, “My dear
friend, George ISchilling,” and occupier
himself exclusively with a sketch of bia
own life, particularly bis actions as
leader of the newly liberated negroes
during reconstruction times in Texas.
Schilling will read the letter in full to Gov,
Oglesby to-morrow if the Governor will
permit. Parsons closes as follows: “Thus,
over a very extensive region of country,
among cotton, corn and sugar plantations,
1 became somewhat famous as a champion
of political liberty. Beloved by the blacks,
1 was hated and scorned by the whites. I
then believed' that the colored peo
pie were truly freemen amf
that they only needed courage te
assort it. But I did not then understand 01
know that economic dependence, i. e., indus
trial servitude, made political lilierty im
possible. I did not know, nor did the blacks,
that they had been merely emancipated
from chattel to wage servitude. I did not
then know that economic freedom must
be the basis for political liberty
that the wage labor system create*
classes, antagonisms and class servitude
and now, ns heroes of old, so called 'free
