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.

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 the disturbances. BUFFALO’S BALLOTING. Buffalo, N. Y., Nov. 8. —The weather was very favorable for the election. The sun shone bright aud clear most of the morning and the temperature was mild.

Mahone’s Cohorts Given Another Bad Black Eye. 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. Norfolk county ilects a Republican. 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 turns from scattering points in the State in dirate that the Democrats are holding their own with no Republican gains worth men tioning. Returns from twenty counties aud cities in the State do not show a gain or loss to either party, although the vote has changed in several instances, former Democratic counties electing Republican Delegates and vice versa. About one-third of the State heard from gives the following as elected: Democratic Senators 5, House of Delegates 33, Republi can Senators 2, House of Delegates B—a Re publican gain of 1 Delegate and a loss of 1 Senator. RICHMOND’S ENTHUSIASM. Richmond, Va., Nov. 8, 11 r. m.—Re turns from all the precincts in the city show that the Democrats have carried live out of the six wards, electing four delegates to the General Assembly by a majority of about 650. The total vote cast was 18,710, the Democrats polling 7,188 and the Coali tionists 6,5-7. The Democratic clubs are 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 have lost the following counties, which at the last election went Democratic: Wythe, King William, Patrick, Louisa and Henry, j and nave made gains in the following noun- i ties, which at, the last election went Repute j lican: Apjiomattox, Russell and Page. If : this rate of losses and gains continues in the ] remaining counties the Democrats will have about lhree-fq’ths of the Senate and nearly two-thirds of the House of Delegatee, thus insuring the election of a Democratic successor to United Slates Senator Riddleberger. Gov. Lee at midnight says the result does SAVANNAH, GA., WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 9. 1887. not exceed his expectations. He has always been confident about Yirginia. He is sure the Senate will lie Democratic by two-thirds majority and the House by three-fifths. The Old Dominion Democratic Club serenaded the Governor to-night and ho addressed the crowd in congratulatory terms. confirming the glad tidings. Richmond, Va., Nov. 9, la. m.—The returns received up to 1 o'clock (his morn ing show that in 45 counties and cities the Democrats have elected 5! members of the House of Delegates, and in 20 the Coalition ists elect 17 members, in 13 out of 19 Sena torial districts in which elections were held the Democrats elected 8 and the Republi cans 5. The remainder of tbe State will in crease these figures to what was telegraphed earlier to-night. negroes voted democratic. Danville, Va., Nov. 8. —Information re ceived from Halifax county reports that many negroes voted the Democratic ticket, and that there is no doubt that the Demo cratic candidates are elected. Danville gives Hart, Dem., for the Senate, 300 majority and the Democratic delegates to Lower House 317.

Alexandria, \ t a., Nov. B.—For the first time in twelve years Alexandria county elects a Republican to the legislature, Speaker Stuart being defeated by 223 votes. Moore, Dem., for Senator in this district is elected by upward of 700 majority. The news being received at the State Democratic headquarters in this city is most encouraging for the Democrats, and t hey are jubilautover the rout of Mahone. Chairman Barbour at midnight said his estimate was that the Democrats in both branches of the Legislature would about hold their own, the losses in a few counties being offset ny gains in so many more. He is certain of a Democratic majority of 25 on joint ballot ; with the probability of a two-thirds majority. LYNCHBURG REDEEMED. Lynchburg. Va., Nov. B.—The Demo crats carry Lynchburg by 450 majority—a change of 900 votes since the Congressional election of last fall.

B.—Winchester (official) gives Thomas W. Harrison, Dem., for the Senate 185 majority, and John M. Silvei* Dem., for the House of Delegates, 94 majority. This is a large gain over last fall’s ©lection. Smoot, the Democratic candidate for the Senate from Page and Shenandoah coun ties, telegraphs here that Page county gives 100 Democratic majority. Harrison, Dem., is elected from this district to the Senate by about 2,300 majority, and Silver, Dem., to the House of Delegates from Frederick by 800 Moore, Dem., is elected from Clarke and Warren counties by about 1,500 ma jority in the two counties. ALBEMARLE DEMOCRATIC. Charlottesville, Va.. Nov. 8. —Thir- teen precincts in Albemarle county give a Democratic majority of 615. The seven precincts to hear from will not change the result. HARRISONBURG’S VOTE. Harrisonburg, Va., Nov. B.—Liggett, Dem., is probably defeated for State Sena tor by a small majority. Harnsberger and Keezcll, Denis., are elected to the House by about 50 majority. BUCKEYE BALLOTING. Four Tickets in the Field and the State in the Same Old Rut. 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; Sharp, 1,666. 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. The counties heard from giving Demo cratic gains are Adanm, Allen, Butler, Champaign, Clermont,Clinton,Columbiana, Defiance. Erie, Greene,- which gives 239 gain in ten precincts, Ixirain 205 in seven precincts, Muskingum, Perry, Pickaway, Ross. Seneca. Shelbv. and Wvandctte.

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. MARYLAND SAFE. 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.

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 Democratic majority of about 6,000, and all the Democrats are elected.

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 also gratified with the result in Phila delphia. which they had awaited with especial interest. The returns for Virginia were also satisfactory.

The Doctor Orders His Removal from the Cell. Dublin, Nov. 8. —Mr. O’Brien was to-day removed to the prison infirmary on the doc tor’s orders. 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 way. A STAGGERING BLOW. 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 At a meeting of landlords in Count y Ar magh to-day, the resolutions declared that they did not desire to soli their pro|ierties.

Vienna, Nov. 8. —Prominent doctors here consider that the summoning of Dr. Kehroe der to San Remo means that the operation of tracheotomy will be [xirformed. Dr. Hchroedor is known to have taken the nec essary apparatus. The summoning of Dr. Bergmann or Dr. Billroth would indicate the necessity of the excision of the whole larynx.

Dr. Mac kenzie is opposed to making an incision into the throat unless it becomes absolutely necessary, lie hopes that he can manage to operate through the mouth.

The dark-skinned wife of Anarchist Par sons has at last abandoned hope List evening she said: "My husband is dead to me, and 1 return home to my children to mourn for him. I spoke good bye to biro for the last time this afternoon for 1 never will cross thrashhold of the jail again to be insulted and humiliated Other women can go there and grovel before the men wao turned us out this afternoon, but 1 will never go until I cun sit at the side of my husband, and talk with him without an infamous guard at my side. 1 want to live with the picture of my husband in a dungeon ever belore my eyes. That will give nio strength to bring up two revolutionists ” GIVEN SOME EXERCISE. Spies, Parson, Fielden, Schwab. Fischer nn<l Engel wore let out of their cells st tl o’clock this morning, and for an hour they stretched their legs in the cell house iu closure. Every movement of the condemned men wn.s watched by luiiiifl’s, one of whom was assigned to each man. The bailiffs walked up and down the exercising Spa' S with their charges, whom they d.d not allow more than five or six feet way from them. They wore alert to prevent any attempt at violence or suicide. They were not, allowed to approach any of tka other prisoners during the hour breakfast was served them. While they were eating, bailiffs stood at the cell doors and watched t horn, and when they were done the knives and forks and dishes were quickly removed. All the men except Engel ale with a toler able appetite. EACH CELL SEARCHED. 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 cept. Rev. W. H Holton, of the Methodist church. Miss Van Zandt talked to Spies three or four minutes with a bailiff within hearing. “He’s like a caged tiger,” said Sheriff Matson, when I.iugg was taken from his (•ell to give tho bailiff a chance to search it. 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 sent by John Brown, Jr., and were given to tiie wives anil friends of the prisoners. 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: “I have and still do refuse to sign any pe tition to the Governor asking for commuta tion of my sentence. I and a few other! will surely hang, but I will not makoa state ment for the lament of those who have signed the jietition. I bate them forth* course they have taken, and would not even lift one of my fingers to save them if I could.” 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. Parsons adding to tholr determination by the words: “If the Btute can afford to put me to death, lean afford to die.” In this the trio remained immovable, notwithstand ing the heartrending scones that had occur red a few moments before, wlien the wives and children of Engel, Fischer and Fielden despairingly advised the meu to sign for their Mikes. parson's letter. Instead of the individual letter which it was hinted by the members of the Amnesty Association that Parsons would write de ploring, like Spies, Schwab and Fielden, the loss of lifo nt the Haymnrket and abjuring the use of force, a decided different com munication—understood to be Parson! 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 blacks, in common with their white breth eren, work and die like beasts in the unceaa ing treadmill of wage slavery." WILL ATTEMPT SUICIDE AGAIN. A suggestion of revolting incidents thai may at any moment happen in the countj jail'prior to the execution of the Anarchists was developed this afternoon when Enge! sent out to nis wife what was to all appear ances simply a basket of dirty dishes anc very soiled linen. Although tne stuff wai not going to, but from the Anarchists, on
