for Nebraska, though tho Republican

of the Incomplete returns.
Demociats In Nebraska say the offi

Republicans claim a majority of 15
on Joint ballot. In ouy event, Mr.
Bryan will not bo sent to tho Senate
through an nnte-electlon agreement.
The endorsement of the Admlnlstin-

states gave their electoral vote to tho

Democratic stato officials.

be Increased. The losses Jn the east
seem tojiave been moie than balanced
by gains In tho west. Tho returns to

on tho popular vote, is about 710,000

Democracy, a reorganization of the
party, with tho temporary Issues elim

held high place In tho party's coun

obtained by the Journal, which yes
terday sent messages to leading Demo
crats lequestlng them to voice "their
opinions as to the causes of Bryan's
defeat nnd to suggest n bails for the
reconstruction of the party.
Don M. Dickinson, postmaster gen
oral, under Grovcr Cleveland, gave
the surprising Information that such a
movement was already under way.
Ho stated that previous to the election
a meeting was held In New York to
discuss tho reorganization of the party
and it was jcsolved to Issue a call

prominent Democrats as tho first step
to bring this about. Mr. Dickinson
was here a few days before the elec

Wm. C. Whitney, In his reply, men
tlpns no such meeting. Ho says that
free sllvcr and imperialism were re
sponsible for Bryan's defeat and adds
that when the Democracy surrenders
to a man who twice loses New York,
Now Jersey, Connecticut and Indiana,

unprecedented in il)o history of our
