Reviews tho Result of the Election
Mr. S. O. Itogers, chairman of tho
Summit County Democratic Esecutlvo
Committee, wild last night, after con
ceding tho county to tho Republicans:
"The result In Summit county and tho
nation, wbllo a surprise to the commit
tee, will bo accepted wjth common
placunce. The oommmltteo was pre
pared for surprises and so iudlcated
to tlio voters before election. Tho
lamlblldo did not happen to bo on our
side. Tho result shows that tho people
nro satisfied with tho existing commer
cial conditions and d!d not dcslro n
change. By re-electing McKInley they
have rovcrscd nil precedents that have
obtained slnco the time of Grant, when
tho people havo refused to glvo a Pres
ident a second term. Tho silent vote,
which counted for so much this year,
was, wjth tho Itepubllcau paity, and
tbo responsibility is uow upon that
partj tp niako good Its promises. Tho
administration will havo tho right to
rogard tho result us a nattering en

satisfied with tho icsult. Mr. Bryan
