BRYAN MAKES A STATEMENT.
Nebraskan Discusses Recent Demo
Lincoln, Neb., Nov. 11.William J.
Bryan has given out an extended
statement concerning Tuesday's elec
Mr. Bryan said he would not
tempt to deny all the reports circu
lated as to his future political action,
but would let his statement serve to
explain his position. He says:
"The- Democratic party has
with an overwhelming defeat in the
national election. As yet the returns
are not sufficiently complete to per
mit analysis. The questions for con
sideration at this time are what les
son does the election teach? and what
of the future? The defeat of Judge
Parker should not be considered a
personal one. He did as well as he
could under the circumstances, he was
.i victim of unfavorable conditions
and of a mistaken party policy.
"He grew in popularity as the cam
paign progressed and expressed him
self more and more strongly upon the
trust question, but he could not over
come the heavy odds against him."
Mr. Bryan reviews the recent his
tory of the Democratic party and says
that Mr. Parker, although backed by
the Eastern press, indorsed by Mr.
Cleveland and supported by the old
bolting Democratic papers, suffered a
worse defeat than did Bryan in either
of his campaigns, ^j^,^-

UES O INCREASE.
MARYLAND IN DSUBTFULCOLUMN
LATE RETURNS CUT THE REPUB-

MISSOURI DEMOCRATS ADMIT DEFEAT
ROOSEVELT SECURES SOUTHERN
STATE BY THIRTEEN THOU-
New York, Nov. 11.After election
interest has suddenly centered upon
Maryland by the announcement that
that state, already conceded to the Re
publicans, is now in doubt. Late re
turns have reduced Roosevelt's plural
ity to the narrow figure of 126 and it
"Will take the official count to deter
mine whether Maryland will be placed
in the Republican or Democratic col
There is also possibility that the
state's electoral vote will be divided.
Beyond the situation in Maryland
and the fact that it is now admitted
Roosevelt carried Missouri, in which
state the legislature is also Repub
lican, the day's election news is de
void of feature.
Returns show steadily increasing
Republican pluralities and it now
seems probable that Roosevelt's plu
rality in the popular vote will be, in
round numbers, 2,000,000.
In Colorado both parties are claim
ing success on the state ticket.
PEABODY MAY CONTEST.
Fraud Alleged in the Balloting, at
Denver, Nov. 11.The defeat of
Governor James H. Peabody, Rep., by
Alva Adams, Dem., is no longer seri
ously disputed by the Republican lead
ers. All the other candidates on the
Democratic ticket also appear to be
elected. Republicans allege fraud in
the balloting in some Denver precincts
and threaten to contest the state elec
tion. However, as Adams has a plu
rality of 10,500, of which 5,700 is in the
state outside the city and county of
Denver, his election would seem to be
assured beyond question.
Adams ran ahead of all other candi
dates on his ticket and,complete re
turns may show that some Republican
candidates are elected.
Both sides are claiming the three
congressmen. John F. Shafroth, Dem.,
claims that he has-been elected con-'
jrressrnan at large, but the returns are
BO incomplete that the result cannot
be stated positively.
The Democrats will control both
branches of the legislature unless
members-elect are thrown out on con
Republican Chairman Farley con
cedes the defeat of Governor Peabody.

''Adams will be made governor by
a plurality of between 3,000 and 4,000.
The Democrats have elected John F.
congressman at large and a
majority of 21 in the legislature on
HEAVY REPUBLICAN VOTE.
North Dakota Gives Roosevelt 20,000
Fargo, N. D., Nov. 11.Later re
turns show that the Republican major
ity in this state has increased. The
Republican vote is from 20 to 40 per
cent heavier than four years ago,
while the Democratic vote is at least1
40 per cent lighter. Roosevelt's plu
rality is above 20,000.
The Socialists cast a considerable
vote for Debs. The Republicans have
elected every judge except in the First
district, where Fisk was re-elected.
Judges Lauder of the Fourth and Glas
pell of the Fifth were retired after,
long years on t^e bench.

CLAIMS SENATOR QUARLES WILL
NOT SECURE RE-ELECTION
St. Paul, Nov. 11.John A. John
son's plurality for governor over Rob
ert C. Dunn, Rep., will be between
10,000 and 15,000. Johnson carried the
Second, Third, Fourth, Sixth, Seventh
and Ninth congressional districts,
while Dunn received his pluralities in I
the First and Eighth districts. Even
in these two districts Dunn ran far
behind Roosevelt, as he did in every
voting precinct in the state, with the
possible exception of one or two.
Of the successful Republican candi-:
dates on the state ticket the smallest
plurality will in all probability go to
Ray W. Jones, candidate for lieuten-,
ant governor. F. G. Winston, the run
ning mate of John A. Johnson on the
Democratic ticket, received thousands
of Republican votes, but failed of elec
tion by from 15,000 to 20,000.
Roosevelt's plurality is growing
and may reach 125,000. He carried
every county in the state, including
Stearns, a Democratic stronghold.
Flooded With Messages.
Washington, Nov. 11.Ten thousand
congratulatory messages have been
received by President Roosevelt. Every
mail brought large numbers of con
gratulatory letters. Notwithstanding
their immense number the president
has decided that each one is to be
answered and this work will require
perhaps several weeks.
New Mexico Republican.
Santa Fe, N. M., Nov. li.Almost
complete returns from all parts of the i
territory show that W. H. Andrews,
Republican candidate for congress, has
a plurality of 4,440. The legislature
will be overwhelmingly Republican.

Are Chiropractic Adjustments the same &.s Osteopath Treatments?
No. The Chiropractic and the Osteopath both aim to put in place
tbat which is out of place, to right that which is wrong but the Path-
ology Diagnosis, Prognosis and Movements are entirely different.
One of my patients,' Mr. W. A. Casler, has taken both Chiropractic
and Osteopoth treatments. The Chiropractic i* ten times more direct
in the adjustments and the results getting health ten times more thor-
ough in one tenth of the time than an Osteopath would.
