JONES CONCEDES IT.
The National Democratic Chairman Says
McKinley la Elected.
CniCAao, Nov, 7. Maj. McKinley
will have not less than 205 votes in the
electoral college. This is not counting
tho 13 electoral votes of Kentucky, in
which state tho result is so close that
either side mav win. Neither docs it
include two of the electoral votes of
Wyoming, which are in doubt, the
third, ono being conceded to tho reoub
Means. It is possible that McKlnley's
electoral vote also be augmented by
the vote of Tennessee, which was be
ing claimed by republicans last night.
Chairman Jones last night conceded
the election of McKinley and Hobart,
sending a telegram to that effect to
Mr. Bryan, whereupon Mr. Bryan
sent a congratulatdry telegram to Maj.
McKinley. Chairman Jones gave out
the following statement last nitrht:
The result of the presidential election Is ap
parently no longer in doubt. It has been one
of the closest contests that tho people have
been called upon to determine In recent years.
We have, claimed tbo olectlon on our advices
from states that were admitted In doubt. In
which , e knew there had been many frauds,
and from which there wore evidences of tam
pering with the returns. It teems now to be
npparont that Mr. Bryan, after making the
most brilliant campaign In the history of our
country, and having carried most of the
states claimed to bo doubtful, has not carried
enough to assure his success In the eleetoral
college. Bryan electors have been chosen
from all tho states south of the Potomac and
Ohio except West Virginia, and all those vest
of tho Missouri except California and Oregon
He has 101 electoral votes, and this number
may bo Increased by final returns from states
jet In question. lie has not obtained enough
to carry the electoral college
Thus this remarkable campaign closes with
tho election of William McKinley. Tho result
was brought about by every kind ct coercion
and Intimidation on the part of tho money
power, including threats of lock-outs and dis
missals and Impending starvation: by the em
ployment of by far the largest campaign fund
ever used In this country and by the subordi
nation of a largo portion of the American press.
Tho president-elect and his party are under
the pledgo to tho American peoplo to continue
the gold standard, and by lti operation to re
store prosperity to this country. As chief ex
ecutive, Mr. McKinley will hare tho cordial
support of the millions of patriotic Americans
who havo cast their votes for William Jen
nings Bryan. They bow to tbo majesty of the
offlco and abldo by tho result with
none of the muttcrlngs that would
have como from the money power
had It been unsuccessful. They are
confident the gold standard cannot give the
promised prosperity, but will gladly welcome
It If It comes. Thev will contlnuo the great
struggle for the uplifting ot humanity and the
maintenance of tho dignity of our country in
the establishment ot tbo American monetary
system. And the democratic party, aided by
Its present allies, will still uplift the bimetallic
standard and bear It on to victory.

BOOM FOR RAILROADS.
Equipment Costing Millions of Dollars Said
to Have Been Ordered.
Chicago, Nov. 7 Equipment cost
ing millions of dollars is said to have
been ordered recently by railroads
throughout the United States, condi
tionally upon tho election of McKin
ley, and, according to a Pittsburgh
estimate, the orders aggregate 50,000
cars of different kinds and 200 locomo
tives. A large amount of rebuilding
and overhauling is also being done.
Allowing for tho additional cost of
sleeping and parlor cars and tho fine
coaches, it may be fnfe enough to figure
on a cost 3.000,000 for now cars alono,
and the average cost of the locomotives
will approximate S7.O0O each, it will
take about 81,400,000 for tho engines,
or a total of 30,400,000 for the entlro
new equipment. Now that the elec
tion is over, thero will bo a great activ
ity in railroad operations, and new
equipment will receive the first atten
tion. All leading lines are. in need of
more freight cars.

AN EXTRA SESSION.
Chairman Hanna Says Prealdrnt-Elcet Mo
Klnley Will Early Convene Congress.
New York, Nov. a Tho World yes
terday morning said: Mark Hanna
gave the World the following outline
of what ho understood to be President
elect McKlnley's gcnernl policy:
I have had but comparatively brief conversa
tions with Ma McKinley since his election.
But this much I know-he feels that ho owes
much to the patrlotlo democrats who prefer
principle to strict party ties. Indiana, for In
stance, was unquestionably carried against
fusion by democratic votes. Ho recognizes the
very great service performed by the demo
cratic and In lependont newspavers during the
campaign. Maj McKinley will endeavor to
see collected a great national party that will
give prosperity to the country. Ho expocts
and hopes that men of all shades of former
political belief will be united to this end.
Tho first movement be will make will be to
obtain sufficient revenue to conduct the
government. Further Issues of bonds would
be altogether too dangerous. Business pros
perity and stability demand that as soon as
possible the government should be on a paying
basis. To this end un extra session of con
gress will be necessary, and President McKin
ley will undoubtedly call one soon after his In
auguration. Legislation will be required to
secure the desired revenue, and Mr. McKin
ley will do everything In his power to secure
it. as well as the legal establishment of a pol
icy which will tend to put evorybodv at work.
In all this ho hopes and expects that ho will be
backed by patrlotlo men, regardless of party
FIVE SAILORS DROWNED.

New York, Nov. o A member of
the republican national committee
whoso sources of information aro of
the very best, said yesterday: "One of
tho movements which will characterize
the McKinley administration will le

too early to predict just what will bo

simpler monetary i-ystem will bo aimed
nt Republican leaders will undertake
these leforms as early as possible.
The best authorities on finance un
doubtedly will have a hand in shaping
this system. It may oven result in the
establishment of a monetary commis

The Populist National Chairman's Official
Address to nts Party.
Washington, Nov. 0. Senator But
ler, of North Carolina, chairman ot the
populist national committee, has is
sued tho following manifesto:
To tho poople of the United States: In tho
remarkable, campaign just closed the peoplo's
party was the only party that supported solidly
and unitedly tho great and vital Issues repre
sented In tbo candidacy of Mr. Bryan, 'lhls
was natural, for tho peoplo's party came Into
existence to bring to the f rpnt and to press to
victory tho principles of Lincoln and Jefferson,
already long discarded by the two old parties.
The money power feeling reasonably sure of
Its control and domination of the leaders and
the controlling Influences In the republican
party. In 180 j gave Its support to the candi
dacy of Orover Cleveland for the especial pur
pose of having him, through the use of patron
age and otherwise, crush out the stiver senti
ment In the south and make the leaders In that
party as completely subservient as tbose In
the republican party. To accomplish this pur
pose four cabinet ministers were selected from
the south and an unusually large amount of
patronage used on political leaders to the same
end. It will be remembered that Mr. Cleve
land demanded that the democratlo senators
and congressmen give a decisive vote In the In
terests of the gold Btandard before be would
deign to give out the post offices. This deep
laid plan might have succeeded bad not the
people's party at this Juncture sprung into ex
istence, exposed the plot, stood in the breach
and appealed to the patrlotlo hosts of both
parties to check tho scheme of the people's
despollcrs and rally to tho common defense.
The people's party wfln a high patriotism
and an unse'lflsh devotion to principle, greater
than ever beforo exhibited by any other party,
stepped outside of Us organization to throw
Its .'.uuo.003 votes solidly for Bryan. Had not
moro than this number of tbose who called
themselves democrats In 1892 given their sup
port to Mr. McKinley. the cause of the people
and American principles would bare tri
umphed this year. This class will surely sup
port the party ot monopolies, and trusts In tho
future. Their places In tho ranks ot the reform
hosts must be taken by patrlotlo republicans.
In fact, Bryan would have been elected in this
contest had even 21.00J more silver republicans
como to tbo rescue.
The election of McKlnloy and the triumph ot
tho gold standard docs not express the dclres
and sentiments of tbo people. The majority
oppose the policy for which be stands and will
so voto whenever nn opportunity Is presented
for a proper alignment. The remarkable and
brilliant campaign ot William Jennings Bryan
would have aligned these forces and marched
them to triumphant victory if any candidate
or leader In America could havo done so under
tho democratic banner.
The administration ot McKinley cannot
bring prosperity to the American people. The
mills cannot be kept open. Idle labor given em
ployment and general prosperity restored and
maintained until tho wealth producers receive
fair returns for their labor and thus are en
abled to purchase. The gold standard and
monopoly rule, to a continuation of which Mr
McKinley stands pledged, means four
more years of falling prices, four
moro years ot lockouts and strikes,
tour more years of reduced wages and Idle
labor This will cause the patrlotlo rank
and fllo of tho republican party to condemn
and repudiate MoKinleylsm as the patrlotlo
rank and file of the democratic party has con
demned and repudiated CleveUndtsm. I can
not believe otherwise, for I have not lest con
fidence In the patriotism of this class ot repub
licans than tbo rank and file ot the democratic
party has already demonstrated.
Therefore, a large per cent, who, though not
foo'ed by the specious pleas ot "honest money"
and promised prosperity, yet who would not In
thu.campa'gn tight under the democratic ban
ner, will surely Join hands wltb the majority
of tho American voters outside of the old par
ties to overthrow a government of truts and
monopolies run la the Interest of foreign rapl
taltsts. The people's party has made this possible
In fait Inevitable The position of the peo
ple's parly In this great contest has convinced
every patrlotlo American that the party can be
trusted to stand for the principles of good gov
ernment and tho Interests of the peoplo under
any and all circumstances Therefore, tho
people's party will lie the nucleus around
which tho patriotic hosts must and will gather
to redeem abet racd republic and to ie-tore
prosperity to an oppressed and outraged peo

with one foot on a little projecting
rock, and clung with my hand fixed in

como and pass me a line, but I cannot

three of the largest oars. All this
takes time which seems very precious
to me; but at last they arrive. The
