Will Not Drive Him From Politics,
Now York,' Nov. 7. (Spl.) Richard
Croker blames freo silver for Bryan's
defeat. He says ho honestly believed
tho Nobraskan would win.
"Do you think Bryan's defeat will
drive him from politics," was asked.
"No, indeed," was his reply. "Bry
an is a great raan.i The decision of
tho country was not against Bryan,
but against tho principles."

"If dispatches are correct," ho said,
there Is np doubt of McKlnloy's elec

idmlt tho loss of Nebraska, Kansas,
Kentucky and Washington, especially
Kentucky. If tho Republican claims
ire true, our ante-election estimates
were wrong. The chief reason for Bo.

"I claim McKlnley's election by 30'

thieo wo considered doubtful, namely,
Nebraska and Utah. In all the eastern
states our majorities fell off because
the Democrats made a hard fight their

The Sun says: "No process of rea
soning can make of this magnificent
victory anything else than an endorse
ment and approval of the Administra
tion of President McKlnley."
The Journal says: "Wm. McKlnley
has bee re-elected In a most decisive
fashion. His popular majority Is much
less than In 1806, but his electoral
majority is enormous. Through tho
haze of this defeat, the Democracy can
see the victory that might have been.
Beyond a doubti Mr. Bryan would havo
been triumphantly elected but for two

silver Issue. Free silver is dead, and so
unpopular that even Its corpse was
enough to drag any man down to de-
"The second was the policy of cut

"The people have evidently mado up
their minds to dispose of free silver
one for all. The effort was superfluous,
for free sliver had ceased to exist as
a possible policy four years ago, but
tho voters were determined not to
bac tho remains, around any longer.
"The Democratic party has paid by
two defeats, for the adoption of an
unpopular and discredited Issue.
"American public opinion believes In
the retention of tho Philippines, and
In the tho extension to tliat country,
of a truly Anjcrlean form of govern,
ment, under which tho Filipinos would
havo no provocation to revolt. It be-
llovcs that free sliver was dead In
1890 and Is ten times deader In 1000.
That is lono issue, at least, that will
not be heard of again In the immcdlato
"Unquestionably the people aro op
posed to Mr. MbKlnley and his policy
In tho Philippines. But they reason
that if the islands aro retained, that
policy can be changed and a truly
American system established In tho
future, while If they were abandoned
altogether they never could be re
gained. "Wo believe It to bo perfectly clear
that If the country has rejected Mr.
Bryan it has dono so with reluctance,
it has wanted just such a President
as ho would be.
"Mr Bryan could have been elected
by such a majority as no President
slnco Grant, has over had if tho two
extraneous Issues of freo silver and
the abandonment of the Philippines
had not been ueedlessly dragged Into
"Mr. Bryan's place In the hearts of
tho Democratic millions Is secure. Ho
lenialns In defeat, as ho would havo
been In victory, a commanding figure,
a fine, conscientious spirit, ndmlred

Democracy. fBut tho attempted re
