Nashville, Aug. 5- A Montgomery, Ala., 8] . aial Baya: The returns in so far show conclusively that Jbhuson and the entire Democrafcio ticket wins by a majority il about 4Ü.000. The legisla ture is eafel.f Deuiocratic by at least two-third. Ihe heavy Democratie gains were made in th.' white counties oL north Alabama. In this portion Goodwyn, Populist, ran behind Kolb's vote in lï!)4. The Populist leaders in Birmingham are beginnhig to cry frnml, claiming that thousands of fictitious rotes were cast in the black belt and they threaten that if Goodwyn is not elected they will organizo the Populists of the state against Bryan and carry Alabama for McKinley in November. Xothing like official returns can be had from the counties until Saturday when the official count will be made by the returning boards of the various counties, but there is no doubt that this is the greatest Democratie victory in state politics since 1890.
