Montgomery and Schenectady, in which in 1888, upon the vote for President, there was a Republican plurality of 503 votes, although in 1891 the counties of the same district gave the Democratic candidate for Governor a plurality of 2,475 votes.

These comparisons are made with a view of obtaining some insight into the political character of the new Congressional districts mentioned above. In Presidential years, when a full vote is cast, while at the same time giving a statement showing the most recent political decisions of the counties mentioned, the vote they cast in the year 1891. In the case of the other thirty Congressional districts the party majorities in them in 1891 were given to the same political party which obtained them in 1888.

In the table given below there will be found the vote given in 1891 for the two leading candidates for Governor in the various counties which were afterwards combined into new Congressional districts by the Legislature of 1892, thus giving statistics showing the strength of political parties in these new Congressional districts : FIRST CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT.
