There a no news on the wires tuesday night that had anything like the same significance As the news that was sent to the sound from old Massachusetts. The traditions of a Century Are broken and All the political precedents of this Commonwealth ire overturned by the announcement that for the second time in succession her people have elected a democratic governor. The news that new York has reaffirmed its allegiance to the democratic Standard is indeed cheering but it lacks the element of unexpectedness which makes the democratic Success in this state so unique and full of meaning. New York has gone democratic before and so often that it is not unfair to class it among the states that have a Normal Bias towards democracy. Massachusetts on the contrary has been the historic Citadel of republicanism it has been accepted As an axiom of politics that Here at least the party of High protect in new York state the democratic Tiger makes Short work of the Republican Canary. The United democracy of the Empire j state Nohle fulfil lid its duty on tuesday. New York never falters in her Devotion to jeffersonian principles when her demo j ratio leaders stand together. Platte a Man Bassett made a stirring Campaign. As a stump speaker he was Able. But he was also unscrupulous. The people could not to diverted from the real Busi 1 mss in hand by All his haunting of false issues. I by the triumphant election of Roswell p. Flower As governor the great and Pivotal state of new York ranges herself in the glorious Hue of states that Are to be counted upon As surely democratic in the coming i fight of �?T92. The democratic Quot Tiger has eaten Tho publican j Roswell p. Flower has beaten a. Sloat j Fassett for governor by at least 43,849 i Vole. Tills estimate is conservative. New York City gave the democratic candidate a plurality of 58,252. And in Kings county he has at least 12,000 plurality.

Little of new York and Alfred Chapin of Brooklyn Are probably elected to Congress and n. M. Curtis Republican is chosen from St. Lawrence county. In Short the Days voting in the Empire state was a continuation of the tidal wave of last fail. The ticket elected. New York nov. 3.�?�?T�?Tsay that the majority is from 25,000 to 30,000, at least and that the entire democratic ticket is elected a said or. Flower Atli of clock tonight. When a messenger from the state committee asked him what the committee should Send out about the election. Election is conceded by chairman Neal of the democratic state committee. The election of a Publ can majority of the general assemble is also provable. Later returns from Ham Hon county show that a magnificent tribute has been paid to gov. Campbells fearless dealing with mis doers in his own party. To was openly opposed by the lenders of the democratic ring to secure Whoso removal from Tolice to called tile extra session of the legislature and on their behalf the Organ of the party Iii Cincinnati remained Neutral during the Campaign the returns show that for every Democrat who scratched Campbell in this City he received the votes of two republicans carrying him ahead of his ticket in every precinct. Tills result has paralysed the ring of democrats Here who have been opposing Bim. Chairman Neal concedes the legislature is Republican which Means the return of John Sherman to the i listed states Senate. Tho result is no Surprise to the democrats. Who had no Confidence in the election of Campbell on account of the immense sums of Money at Tim command of the republicans and the fact that Ohio has never twice Iii succession elected a democratic governor. A the greatest Surprise is the result in Hamilton county where the bitterest tight was made against Campion. He leads his ticket in Verv precinct and instead of running behind from 8000 to 10,000 it is do Gottul if Tim republicans will boat him More than ii5oo Giorc the australian ballot was a Success although about 5 per cent. Of the votes were thrown out on account of being defective. The Superior organization and abundant Means at the service of the Remi Blicaus have enabled them to set out every vote to which they Aro entitled Aud has won them the Victory. Latest returns indicate that Mckinley a majority May go to 16,000, but they Are running so irregularly that estimates Are mostly Guesswork. Iowa. Gov Roswell p. Flower. Gov. W. K. Russell. Tion was impregnable entrenched and fortified behind a reserved majority which could always be depended upon to assert itself whenever summoned to a supreme Effort. It was summoned on tuesday Aud refused to respond. The familiar boast of the Republican leaders on the stump was that no democratic governor had Ever been elected in this state and that none Ever would be. That boast will never be heard again. With Tho fairest and fullest vote Ever cast at a purely state election recorded under the australian ballot and thereby certified As an unquestionably honest expression of the popular will Massachusetts has elected Gallant William e. Russell to the executive chair which lie Lias filled with such signal ability and credit As to win the approbation of his fair minded opponents As Well As of his own party. No higher compliment could be paid to gov. Russell than this and to him personally belong the first and Heartiest congratulations of the morning. In the Light of the returns which Tell the Story of his election by an enormously increased vote roiled up for him in the Teeth of a Campaign As determined energetic and unscrupulous As any the Republican party Ever conducted in this state gov. Russell May Well feel that his detractors have been not Only silenced but put to shame. He is sustained by the judgment of the people on every Point at Issue Between him and his reckless assailants. Nationally considered the Victory Iii Massachusetts is a storm signal for 1802 which the Republican party throughout the country will observe with Well grounded apprehensions. Trio Gibraltar of Republican ism is made distinctly fighting ground for next year by Tho event of tuesday and Good fighting ground too. Or. Lodge and his candidate declared again and again on the stump that this contest was the skirmish line of 1892. The contest is Over and on Tho skirmish line they have been Defeated. It follows that the electoral vote of Massachusetts is now a debatable Quantity in the presidential equation. There can be no doubt As to the Public opinion which Lias produced this situation. The verdict of 1890 on Mckinie ism has been confirmed on Appeal to a much larger jury of voters in 1891. The revolution of last year is not moving backwards As the apostles of War tariffs in time of peace have said. Massachusetts is confirmed in her revolt against the Iron hand of taxation that is Laid with crushing weight on her manufacturing Industry. She persists in her demand for free raw materials and a fairer Field for the employment of her capital and labor she is of Hie same mind now As she was last fall Only More so. She will to of Tho came mind in 1802, and still More so. It is a splendid Victory and the moral inspiration of it will be a vital Factor in the coming presidential struggle of whose successful Issue it will be hailed by tile National democracy As a most Welcome sign. Tile cause of the people moves Resistless a on to National Triumph and once More it May be said that a Massachusetts leads the friends who went to or. Flower s rooms at the Windsor hotel today to hear election news and those who gathered there in the evening for the returns found the democratic candidate As much at ease As if he were sitting in his office. A the state vote North of the Harlem River wins us the election a he said. Quot in one sense i am surprised in another i am not. Quot i thought that the other Side counted too confidently on the country vote. I knew that in counties about my Homo i would poll a Large vote. Not much was said about it during the Campaign but there was never a doubt of it from Tho moment of my nomination. Quot my interests have been identified in a personal and social Way so Long with the people in the upper part of the state that i counted on Largo support there without asking for gov. Hiu Juell glided. Albany n. A a a nov. 4.�?gov. Hill said at i of clock this morning Quot the result is extremely Gratifying and the More so because All of our big gains were either in the country or else in the districts where there was alleged dissatisfaction such As Brooklyn and counties. Quot it is a vindication of the party and party principles. The stuffed Tiger was Quot not in it in the country As was evidenced by the increased democratic vote. Quot i am particularly gratified Over the result in my own City of Elmira the result also in Tho Senate and Assembly districts is ail we expected. It is a night and time for general Quot it should to considered As a great Democrat. C Victory presaging democratic Success Iii the nation next year. The crushing defeat which or. Bassett received in his own City of Elmira and in his county of Chemung is particularly significant of the Peoples dislike for hts methods of campaigning and i Ain especially proud that my own county recorded its preference for or. Flower so emphatically. Republican losses Are vary general All through the farming districts of the state and the entire democratic state ticket is undoubtedly elected. Returns at 2 a. In. Wednesday show that the new York Senate will stand 17 republicans to 15 democrats. The Assembly will be 64 republicans to 04 a a a Napoleon Mckinley democratic Triumph assured by an increased plurality. Des Moines la., nov. 4.�?the returns received indicate the election of gov. Boies by an increased plurality Over that received by him two years ago. This result has been obtained by an increased majority in the Strong democratic counties on the Mississippi and on the Missouri slope where it was supposed the democratic High water Mark was reached two years ago. Gains Are Aire reported from the Interior which is a realization of democratic expectations. The republicans gain somewhat in Polk and in Blackhawk counties the latter being the governor s Home where a very Bittor fight was made on Bim. It is probable the entire democratic state ticket is elected. No definite terms have been received concerning the complexion of the legislature. The Des Moines state Register the Organ of the chairman of the Publ can National committee concedes the election of Boles by reduced plurality not exceeding 2500. A feature of the election was the failure of the Alliance As an organization to Cut any figure in Tho results. Que a yi3m rules. Pennsylvania follows Tho ibo a and is Republican. Philadelphia penn., nov. 3.�?returns for the City and state Are coming in very slow but enough Are now at hand to indicate that the republicans have carried everything Gregg. Ii., is elected auditor general by from 25,000 to 40,000 majority and Morrison is elected state treasurer by probably 20,000 to 30,000. The contest in the City has been of great Energy Aud the republicans have spent More Money than Ever before in ail off year. Debauchery ran not Iii Many of the lower wards of the City and thousands of trading democrats voted direct for the Republican candidates while thousands of the keepers of Speake Asies gambling Dens and houses of ill repute were rallied to the support of the ticket. Promises of police Protection were never before More shamelessly used to subvert Tho will of respectable citizens at the polls. The result is that Quay ism and Bardsley ism have been granted a new least of Power. The City treasurer of Philadelphia Wil Ham Redwood Wright i who was appointed by gov. Pattison to succeed the notorious John Bardsley was Defeated by George Mccreary r.,by 20,000. And William g. Shields. A. Was elected Register of wills of Philadelphia Over Theodore Jenkins d., by 23,000. New Jersey. I triumphs Over the Campbell of that ilk. Cincinnati nov. 4.�?Ohio elected yesterday besides a governor a lieutenant governor treasurer , auditor and supreme court judge and minor state officers a Complete Senate and House of representatives. The present governor and lieutenant governor Are democrats and the democrats have a majority of the general Assembly. The other state officers Are to the vote in detail. Gov. Russell elected by about 5000 plurality. In a vote rivalling in its fullness that of j 883, gov. Russell was elected by the quite sufficient plurality of about 5000. According to general expectation however the republicans elected their candidates for All the other state offices. The Reserve vote came out All Over the Commonwealth but it did not come out in hostility to gov. Russell who is the first democratic governor in this generation to be twice elected to the chief magistracy of Massachusetts the democracy of Boston surprised its friends and disappointed its enemies with its unbroken ranks for Russell. Boston equalled if not exceeded her phenomenal ideality of a year ago. Russell ran ahead of his vote of 1390 in nearly every democratic precinct. The returns from the other cities came in publicans. There was also elected a judicial ticket and county officers in the various counties. No City or township candidates were in the Field municipal elections in Ohio being held in april. There was also voted upon a constitutional amendment to enlarge the Power of the legislature in the matter of taxation and appropriation for the holding of a constitutional convention. Neither of these matters have attracted any attention in Tho Campaign and it is doubtful if one voter in a Hundred has voted upon them at All. William Mckinley dr., Lias been elected governor of Ohio by a majority of irom 10,-000 to 15,000, on one of the heaviest votes Ever cast in the state. The new system of voting has greatly delayed the counting of the vote and Only scattering returns Are in but Mckinley selection resulted in expected Victory for the democrats. New your nov. 3.�?new jerseys election today resulted in an expected and conceded Victory for the democracy. State senators were chosen in seven of the 21 counties that is in Burlington. Cape May. Hunter Don Middlesex Passaic and Sussex counties and to fill a vacancy in Hudson county where congressman e. F. Mcdonald had resigned his legislative office. A Complete House of Assembly was also chosen Aud a few county offices were filled it was a foregone conclusion before Tho polls opened that the republicans could not capture control of either the House or the Senate. Forty of the 09 Assembly districts Are democratic and nine democrats to five Republican senators hold Over. The democrats had. Therefore to elect Only two senators to retain control of the satiate and it was absolutely certain that they could not lose control of the House unless there was a landslide. There was very Little interest taken in the Assembly elections. The assemblymen in new Jersey hold office for Only one year and those elected today will not have a vote for United states senator in 1893. Senators. However Holdt Mieir seats three years and those chosen this fall will have a voice in the selection of Rufus Blodgett a successor. Passaic and Middlesex Are Clore counties Aud the democrats had made particularly Strong nominations for senators in Burlington and Cape May so that the eyes of All Jersey men were turned towards those four precincts tonight the polls do not close in new Jersey until 7 of clock in the evening.

It will he difficult to Tell whether the Alliance has fallen off or not. Even after the full returns Are in from All the counties unless Hie Victory is a sweeping one. Indications show that the people s party has made gains in the towns but there has been a heavy falling off in the country precincts. The result of this election Wil i have great import for the democratic party. If the Peoples party made Large gains the democrats will in the future a divided on the question of a fusion but if the republicans win the democrats will hereafter have a straight ticket. Despatches from various counties in Kansas show that the Alliance did not hold its own at today selection. Only 47 counties of the 106 in the Blate have been heard from.

Tsaknis a russian writer has published an interesting work upon the curious religious sects of Russia from Winch it appears that there Are no less than 16,000,000 followers of insane and Cranky notions in that Empire. These communities of devout and deluded christians Aro constantly springing up in spite of All the efforts of russian despots to keep them Down. One of these sects is called the runaways. They try from villages and towns As soon As they embrace the new Faith seeking to destroy their identity As much As possible and henceforth live As Savages. They return As near to Many a primitive condition As possible regard civilization As the greatest of curses and make the robbing of churches one of their most sacred duties. Another sect Call themselves christs. The y worship Encl other a crazy species of dancing being their chief ceremony. The Skont sys another religious body. Believe in self mutilation but will not submit to amputation although know no that a life May be sated thereby. Like the christs they Are expert dancers. Besides dancing and Yelling for hours without intermission they add a Midnight acrobatic performance to the ceremony Many of the tricks and contortions being difficult in the extreme. The dumb boys Are another of these curious sects. Why they Are called dumb boys no one seems to know. The sect is composed of both sexes old men boing in the majority. Some of these deluded old patriarchs Are known to have kept their vow of silence for More than half Century. M. Soul Keiit is the Leader of a sect which preaches suicide As an absolute necessity for salvation. At one of his great Quot revivals in Kief he preached so hard in favor of murder and suicide that several of his followers Cut each others throats. There Are dozens of other fanatical religious bodies in Tim benighted Empire of the Czar Many of whom practice blood curdling sacrificial ceremonies. Telephone to a Volcano. Santiago de Chili get 30.�?it is Gener ally admitted Bere by Tho supporters of Tho government and by the americans and those in sympathy with them that Tho situation of affairs As regards the dispute Between Tho United states and Chili has not improved. In fact Tho anti american feeling i grow Itig Iii Bitume and All tile american officials in Chili arc apprehensive that further troubles brewing. The exact nature of this trouble they Are unable to define but they see Little Prospect that an amicable settlement of the Valparaiso incident will soon be reached and Tho signs of increasing popular animosity toward Tho United mates give ground for apprehension and indignation. It is not intended by these statements to create a feeling of alarm or even anxiety As to Tho final result of the diplomatic negotiations nos. In Progress but from All one can see hero today the relations Between Tho Junta and the United states government Are dangerously strained. United states minister Egan ant. W. S. Schley of Tho Baltimore and w Illiam b. Me Creepy United states Consul at Valparaiso wore in close consultation throughout the Day. It is pot possible to obtain and definite statement from them for publication regarding their deliberations out it can to said that they All consider the reply of Tho Junta to minister egans unto asking for proper explanation of Tho Valparaiso collision. As decidedly insulting to the untied states government. It is Al of known that they regard Tho situation at present As being ser Ous. Tim rep v of the Junta they think moans practically that chill is indignant at the demands made by the United states government that silo will take Lier own time to consider the matter and that when tie Junta reaches a conclusion that government will Settle tin matter without reference to the views of the United states on the subject. The reply of the Junta to lev further say fails to express any regret for Tho murder of Tho Baltimore a men nor is there in that document any expression of regret at the conduct of Tho police in using their bayonets in arresting tile Baltimore a men. Several of the latter were More or less severely wounded by Bayonet thrusts. While the United states officials Here Are indignant at Lite terms of the reply of Tho Junta their indignation is As nothing to that Felt the american residents in Chili. Tho latter Aro looking for More serious trouble possibly in the near future Between chill and the United states. It is believed today that tile i toted states Cruiser Baltimore is prepared to enforce if necessary proper treatment for Lier officers and sailors who May be compelled by the necessities of the service to go ashore. Everything possible will to done by Tho Baltimore a commander to avoid trouble. But for marketing provisioning watering. Interchange of messages Between the commander and Tho United states minister and other duties men and officers had Togo Ashor e and As Tho virtual Boycott placed upon the Baltimore continues cant. Schley of necessary will Send armed Mon ashore and will take other Steps to ensure their Protection. It has just become known that Thoro is Anni her feature of rho Valparaiso outrage which demands explanation the municipal and government officers of Valparaiso who investigated the attack upon the sailors of the Baltimore compelled the United states Man of wars men who were confined Iii Tho prison to sign a statement written in Spanish exonerating Tho police from All responsibility As to their arrest. Those papers had to be signed by Tho Blu jackets As one of the conditions of their release. Another Point which is not serving to allay ill feeling is the fact that no Courtesy of any kind was shown to Tho United Stettos naval officers or men upon Tho occasion of Tho funeral of Turnbull the second Man of Tho Baltimore s Crew who died from Tho injuries lie received during the attack upon Tho Blu jackets. London oct. 27.�?the London times that minister egans request for an explanation from the chilian government is natural and proper but Tho expression of indignation is a Little premature the sex Parte account from Tho american Point of View leaves it extremely doubtful whether the Paul servants of the chilian government Are guilty. Until America is Able to prove this she Lins no right to prefer demands in a blustering and threatening manner. Riots Are not unknown tinder Tim Benignant Sway of Tho Washington government. Chili might justly recall the fact that minister Egan openly enrolled himself among the partisans of Tho Defeated pretender adding appreciably to the difficulty of reaching a settlement. She might also remind America of Tho new Orleans affair for which Italy got Little satisfaction. _ the Story of the trouble. It rectitude or exp Rene is of Tho investigation on Board Tho Baltimore but will recognize Only Tho jurisdiction and authority o lits own country to judge and punish the guilty in chilian territory. Quot Ile says Tim administrative and judicial authorities have been investigating Tho affair that judicial investigation under chilian Law is secret and the Tim i not vet arrived to make known the result that when that time docs arrive in w ill communicate Tim result although in does not recognize any other authority As competent to judge or tinal cases than that established by the chilian people. Until the time arrives to disclose Tho result of Tim investigation he cannot Advt that the disorders in Pavso or tile silence of his department should appear As an expression of unfriendliness towards the government of Tho United states which might put in peril Tho Friendly relations Between Tho two sending a Fleet to Valparaiso. New York oct. 30. There was a general air of preparation at the Navy Yard yesterday such of has not been seen for some time.

Quot Honolulu has the most wonderful Telephone system in the world a said or. Richards. Quot you can get any number you want As soon As you ask for it. And can hear perfectly a very great distance. There is a Good system in Hilo too and the lilies run the whole length of the Island and go to Tho houses of Many of the largest planters. Quot the people of Hawaii use the Telephone much More Thau do tile people it any part of the United states that i was Ever in.

The United states government monday through minister Egan at Santiago formally demanded reparation from the government of Chili for the attack recently made in Valparaiso upon a number of the seamen of the Baltimore.

These investigations had shown that Charles Hig Gaii one of the Baltimore a Petty officers was dragged by chileans from a Street car and murdered by a pistol shot while John Turnbull another of the Baltimore a wounded men who died monday front his injuries received 18 states already Well known is reaffirmed and an intimation Given that while this gov Ern ment does not indulge in threats or make demands which Are not justified by events it still insists on Chili making reparation for the killing of american sailors and the insult to the National Honor. Interesting comment from All sides. Senor Matte the chilian minister at Paris. Said that he had received no advices front his government relative to the demand of the United states upon Chili and would not express any opinion further Titan to say that the Junta could be depended upon both to enforce Justice Aud to maintain the Honorof the country.

He said that there was no doubt of the ability of Chili to defend herself in a conflict with the United states or tiny other Power Aud that nothing squid be yielded to menaces. The in Inion Standard says Quot America has Good reason to be incensed at Chili but when Tho trial of the offenders at Valparaiso is completed there w la be time enough to move. President Harrison and or Blaine know Attiat Chili will take the necessary Steps and will not he influenced much by m Ulster Egan whose presence will not be Likely to Conduce to u Good understanding. Elections Aro proceeding in both America i cannot a in recalling at this moment that you gave to the Senate of la Quot i listed states the Man who is remembered by All his countrymen a it the i est Modem embodiment of american greatness that Webster great applause though he loved Freedom and hated slavery never consented to i e infringement of constitutional rights oven for the Sake of Freedom that.

Who surprised and alienated a sentiment bom of patriotic warmth by advocating the obliteration of tile reminders of Tho triumphs of american soldiers Over american soldiers and who throughout a Long Public career illustrated lits belief that politics is but the application of moral principle to Public affairs. Renewed applause ii from the contemplation of these lofty precedents you turn to tile manner in which the sentiment Ami feeling in Massachusetts have of late been represented in let oth Bouses out or Lesus Croesus.

The entire previous history of the world cannot show a parallel to this financial remain Ltd of i nth Century America. Tho gathered treasures of the lydian Croesus Ami tie roman Crassus would sink into insignificance beside the Bond Laden safes of the Vanderbilt and Midas who a magic touch turned Stone into Gold.

There is but one parallel to the marvellous inheritance of financial ability thai has Dis Ting s Ted the Vanderbilt family. Thao one is to be found in Tho House of Rothschild. Whose colossal Fortune a had morn longer to grow. And has been fostered by Tho support of most of the crowned Heads of Europe. In spite of those facts the United wealth of All the branches of the Rothschild family is estimated at not More than Naif a much again a that of the four Vanderbilt Brothers. Tim landed possessions of tile Astor preserved intact for four generations and augmented by the unearned increment of new Yorkus development hardly afford a parallel Case.

Egan says that tie surgeons of Tho United states War ships exp the opinion that some of the wounds indicted upon Tho american sailors were Bayonet wounds Ami that tills clearly i showed that the Ponce officers of no miso who Are armed with bayonets took part in the attack. Tho americans were without arms and practically defenceless. Or Egan in presenting this statement sex i pressed in distinct words the fooling of i Groat ind tation which Tho state department at Washington feels at the whole to their Domestic difficulties. It is to their interest to be on Good terms wit i the United the merchants ill the chilian Trade Aro moving every influence at their command to tiring about Briti Sli interference in behalf of Chili in toe present misunderstanding Between Chili and the United stat Quot. There is no likelihood however that lord Salisbury will consent to have anything to do with tie affair As Long As British rights Are respected.

The record has been watched with Peculiar int rest by tie head of the London Ami Northwestern locomotive department irs the feat is without parallel in the annals of railway travelling. The engine has never sustained a breakdown.

After making a grief but pointed sum Mary of the facts to Wirich he had been in i strutted to Call attention minister Egan in-1 formed tile representatives of tile Junta i that. In the name of the United states he demanded reparation for tile insults and injuries complained of. L Ite sympathy of the american Colony is entirely with clap. Schley and his Blue jackets and they Are All glad to receive tile news that another United states War vessel the Boston Lias sailed for those Waters. Chili replies. The answer is deemed unsatisfactory and the demand is reiterated. It was nearly thursday noon before the cipher cablegram received from minister Egan in tile morning by the state department was translated and Laid before the president soon after 6 of clock the following official statement was made Public Quot the department of state received this morning a Telegram from minister Egan dated Santiago oct. 28.

And the nitrate interests Are also opposed to it on tote ground that War might result in tie United states through an arrangement with Peru getting control of the nitrate Deposit also Attiat a successful War would live the effect of raising american prestige in South America to the detriment of England. The change of feeling since wednesday is significant. The St. James Gazette remarks that whether president Harrison a rising indignation or or. Blaines electioneering calculations will result in War is doubtful. Tile chileans a it says. Quot Are not in a mood to submit to bullying. If the americans have grievances for which they can legitimately demand redress. Chili has equal reason to complain of the conduct of or. Egan. Bos Silv if the sex Secretary of Tho land league were recalled the difficulty Between the two republics would to much More easily the London times referring to Tho chilian affair regards the american deliverance As tall talk intended to influence the coming elections and save that after tuesday a settlement probably will be found satisfactory to both parties. The London Telegraph referring to the chilian trouble save Quot president Flaris it it a was perfectly justified in acting As he did. Doubtless minister egans appointment has turned out h the worst that could have been made. His action was a notorious violation of the obligations of neutrality. Put government to the presidents Telegram of oct. 23. Asking reparation for the recent murder of american sailors in the streets of Valparaiso Quot the minister of foreign affairs replies that the government of tie United states formulates demands and advances threats that without being cast Back with acrimony Are not acceptable nor could they be accepted in the present Case nor in any other Case of like nature.
