Lonisvlll', Nov. 9.—The democratic
and republican headquarters are prac
tical 17 deaertrd, onlj a clerk or two
being left in each to receive any be
lated return* that may c .me in. Those
' of the party leaders mill in the ci<y
refuse to alter the claim* of demoorat*
placing Beckham’s plurality eloee to
6,000, and the republican* are pinning
faith on the official count, which will
be*in in each oownty today The offi
cial count, the republican* assert, will
bring to the front hundred* of ballot*
not yet reported. The unreported rot*
county, whioh i* practically
conceded to the republicans, and one
miseing preoinot in Metoalf oounty,
claimed by tfc* republican* by 63 plu
rality, are expected by headquarter*’
clerk* today, but they can bat* no af*

Lexington, Not. 9.—Canvassing the
returns of Tuesday’s election is likely
to cause trouble in various ways, and
already the courts have been invoked
to undo the blunders of the election
ecfilcers. By failure of tbe county clerk
to furnish to the eleotion officers du
plicate forms for certifying to returns,
it happens that in several precinct*
the only official oirtifioate of the vote
ia loeked op in tbe ballot boxes, which
under the law caonct be opened for
six month*. Possibly, tbe whole vote
at the county will be affected. Aman
damus baa been granted direotlng the

May Contest tbe Electoral Vote of tbe
State of Kentuoky.
' Louisville, Nov. 9.—Republtoan Lea
lie Comb* said today that there 1* no
qnestion that Yerkre carried tb* State
by a substantial plurality. Why it la
realized that ten vote* to tbe preoinct
meant over 18,000 in tbe State, It can
readily be teen what nnmbar has been
secured by the democratic party with
out affronting public opinion. Tbe
thefts tbts year, in my opinion, are
greater than laat year. I desire to
make no flotlttone contests, but if the
fact* are at we now believe they are,
we will contest tbe electoral vote of
NEBRASKA FOR M’KINLEY.
Republicans Have Two Congressmen
And tbe State Senate,
Omtht, Nov. 9.—Tbe almost oomplete
returns give MoKtnley a plurality of
over 0,000. The republican State tioket
is apparently elected by from 1,600 to
2,000 majority. Tbe republicans eleot
congressmen in the First and Second
districts, and tbe fusionists in (be
Third, Fourth and Sixth districts. The
legislature, tbe returns on which are
not yet oompleted, will probably stand
eionists, 16; vaoant, I. Tbe house will
stand republican*, 51; fusionista, 49.

A GREAT SUCCESS.
Way cross People Deserve Credit For
Their Big Fair.
A number of Brnnswicklans who have
returned from the Waycross fair, say
that it was a great success, and was just
as good as any fair held in Georgia this
year. The people of our sister city are
hustlers, aud when they make up their
minds to accomplish something they
generally get there.
Mr. S etson Fleming, who spent some
time there, [says there Is a larger num
ber of fine borses at Waycross tban
there was at any of the. fairs yet held.
