And Uncle Sam are

AS IS EVIDENCED
By the Expressions of tlie
Former,
HAPPY OVER THE ELECTION
And Hopes for the Solution of a Commercial
Treaty.
By Associated Pres3.
Berlin, Nov. 7. In German govern
ment circles all are delighted at Pres
ident McKlnley's re-plectlon. The
United States Dmbassador today re
ceived a number of expressions of that
kind.
Generally speaking, tho German
public Is taking a much greater Inter
est in tho American election sthan here-
fore. Everybody is discussing the re
sult. Dr. Von Holleben, tho German
Ambassador to the United States, who
Is now In this city, said to a correspon
dent of the Associated Press, about the
result: "We all rejoice over tho re
sult." ThcTageblat says: "Germans greet
McKlnley's election above all as a vic
tory for sound currency over the revo
lutionary monetary experiments which
would operate to most'Sevcroly shake
tho basis of the entire world's com
merce. Anyhow, Germany's policy is
to nurse close and loyal relations with
a head country that Is connected with
us by so many economic and national
affinities as Is the United States. For
that reason, too, the Emperor repeat
edly made approaches ilo President
MeKinley and the latter has especially
recently responded cordially. There Is
In no part of the world a serious dif
ference between tho United States and
Germany. In the Chinese question
both powers have marched on the
same lines after McKlnley's first feel
ing ot distrust regarding Germany's
alleged territorial schemes subsided.
We hope that during his forthcoming
administration all political questions
will bo solved between the two coun
tries In the same spirit of fairness and
mutual confidence. Above all, we
hope that the question of a commercial
treaty will bo bolved."

By, Associated Pros.
Columbus, O , Nov. 7. Republican
Stato Chairman Dick paid tonight:
"Unofficial returns received from 84 of
88 counties warrant the claim of 70,000
for MeKinley, and we elect 17 out ot 21
members of Congress, a gain of two.
Estimates on tho four missing coun
ties makes the plurality about 73,000,
or a net Republican gain of about 22,
000 ocr the vote of 189G.
Estimates on tlie four missing coun
ties, and the Democrats in 11, most of
the Democratic gains being In Cleve

largest proious plurality for a Piesl
dent In Ohio was GO.OOO for Lincoln,
but that was when thcio was a much
smaller vote than was cast In the state
this year.

close or doubtful congressional districts
electing Jacob A. Beidler in tho twen
tieth by leas than 500; Robt. M. Nevln

With returns from all but 62 out of

ier Journal says that Bryan's majority
will be 7784 and Beckham's 40G8. The

.vlded between the Democrats and Re

headquarters said tonight: "I am ab
solutely certain that I am elected by a
majority of between 5000 and 10,000
votes,"
Leslie Combs, Chairman of the Re
publican Campaign Committee, said:
"Wo believe that Yerkes has been
elected by a majority of 3000. Our fig
ures show that MeKinley ran 900 votes
behind Yerkes. At least 3000 Repub
lican ballots have not yet been count
ed In certain counties, and these will
Increase the Republican vote. We al
so claim tho election of four Republi
can congressmen, namely: Borelng,
In tho eleventh district; Irwin In the
fifth; McKenzlo Moss, In the third;
and Hopkins, In the tenth. Wo are
also of tho opinion that Pugh is elect
ed over Kahoe In the ninth district."

ands of workers men and women to
those who joined in tho enthusiastic
greetings. The President appeared at
each stop, shaking hands from the
rear platform and making short
speeches at most of the important
towns. Mis. MeKinley received her
share of the popular tribute, men and
women struggling to present her with
flowers.
An interesting ncident occurred
soon after tho train left Canton.
Many of those on tho regular coaches
were anxious to greot the President,
and ho consented to see a delegation
from Alliance, which is In his own dis
trict. One horny handede veteran
stood back In the crowd until tho Pres
ident spied him and said: "Well, Tom,
I'm glad to seo you." The President
remarked that 600 majority had hith
erto been the high water mark at Al

gone wild," was the enthusiastic ans
wer. "When the whistle sounded this
morning every man fel Unto line with
Tom Russell on horseback, four girls
In whlto leading the procession and

'VUy fellow citizens: I did not fail to
observe the verdict of Alliance, given
on yesterday and I cannot refrain
from expressing to you, In passing, my
great appreciation of this vote of en
couragement and support fiom my old
frlerds and neighbors of Stark county.
I observe that majorities arise with
prosperity and that tho American peo
ple never fall to support the flag."
At this place a vast concourse of
pccplo lined tho tracks. Tpps of
freight cars were used as points of vant
tage. 'Little girls bore big American
flags. A drum corps was uniformed as
U. S. Volunteers. A huge broom, drap
ed with yellow ribbon, was carried at
tho head of the procession. The
screech of factory whistles was deaf
ening. The President bowed his
thanks .and when order was secured,
ho said: "You are hero to celebiate
tho victory won, not by a single party,
but by tho people ot all parties. I go
back to my public dutiei at tho capital
encouraged by your 'confidence, but
deeply conscious of tho grave respon
sibilities which your action yesterday
imposes upon me. I can only ask o
all my countrymen their sympathy
and support In tho solution of tho
great problems that rest upon ttio
United Slates; I am sure all of us will
humbly petition tho guidance of that
Divlno Ruler who never failed this
