with a ru"h. carrying; everything else with the

which would have rendered government impos?

before th<> sights are repeated.

has never made a speech, but he has suddenly

prove once more that It Is occasion, and not

night was not b-ss remarkable In manner than
In substance, it was evidently without prepara?

that many professional after-dinner speakei-s
1 might envy.
In brief hm touching words he referred to his

INDIANA SAFELY REPUBLICAN
M'KINLEY'S PLURALITY ABOUT ?l.OnO AND A
REPUBLICAN LEGISLATURE ASSCKED.
Indianapolis. Nov. 4 (Special) ? It Is probable
that In.lianii gives McKinley her electoral vote
by a plurality of about 20,000. The returns a-e
exceedingly alow and are trying the patience of
both sides. Latest returns show that Southern
Indiana has largely Increased Its Democratic
Tote, while Northern Indiana has largely In?
creased its Republican vote. Chairman Gowdy
claims the BtatS by the figure named. "The
Journal" mak?>a the same claim. The Republi?
cans claim ten of the thirteen Congressmen,
though the election of Lundis In the IXth and
Leighty in the XHth District Is In doubt. It may
take the official returns to determine in these
districts. Landls was opposed to Joaeph B.
Cheadle, who formerly was a member of the
House as a Republican. O. F. Fairbanks says
that the Legislature will be Republican In both
branches.
Chairman Gowdy at S o'clock ?aid: "OtTlclal
and .semi-official but trustworthy returns from
forty-five Republican counties and thirty-six
Democratic counties have been received. The
plurality In the Republican counties is 37,021, and
the Democratic plurality Is '2\,'2'2\. Trustworthy
returns from the legislature show that the Re?
publicans will have control of both branches and
about twenty majorltv on Joint ballot. The ten
counties yet out are small, remote and half Re?
publican."
At 1(1 o'clock to-night Chairman Martin of
the Democratic State Committee conceded the
State to McKinley by 28,000, while claiming the
election of five Congressmen?Meyers In the lid
District, Zenor in the Hid, Holman in the IVth,
Cheadle In the IXth, and Robinson In the Xllth.
The Republicans concede all these but Cheadle,
claiming the election of Landls by 600.
CALIFORNIA SAFE.
M'KINLEY HAS A LEAD WHICH CAN1?
BE OVERCOME.'
San Francisco. Nov. 4 (Special).?California la
safe for McKinley. I'p to 8 o'clock this evening
McKinley led in California t?y 7.0>HI votes. At
that hour return* had been received from 1.876
out of 2,377 precincts. These gave McKinley
128,186, and Hryan ISMS& In spite of changea
In several counties, this lead cannot be overcome,
as San Francisco gives W88 majority for Mo
Kin l-y. Democrats expected it to go for Bryan
by 1.000.
Mr. McLaughlin, of the State Committee, as?
serts positively that California haa gone for the)
Republican candidate by from BvOOO to 6,000.
The Republican papers In this city give the plu?
rality a? ranging from .",000 to 10,000t "The
San Francisco F.xamlner," Democrat, concede?
the State to McKinley by 3,000.
The next Legislature will stand: Assembly?
Republican?? 4*1; Democrats, 10. Senate?Re?
