THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN.
The most momentous election held
ln thirty-five years is over. The people
have spoken, and that with no uncer
tain sound. That has happened which
was expected hy those who had faith
in the constancy and honor of our peo
ple. They have elected Mr. McKinley
to the presidency, as a means of de
feating and rebuking Mr. Bryan and
all his works, and declaring their de
votion to sound money, to national
honor, and to the maintenance of or
derly government in these United
States. They have done, moreover,
that which all have hoped that they
would do. They have made this vic
tory so-wverwhelming that nc one can
m<ss its significance. They have bm-
led repudiation and mob rule under
an avalanche of what promises to be
a pluraliiy of not far from a million
The Globe stated, soon after the
Chicago convention, that the candi
dates nominated there, on the plaform
adopted, could not expect to carry a
single state between the Atlantic Ocean
and the Rocky mountains and north
of the Ohio river. That prediction has
been fairly verified. The Middle West,
tc which the Populists pinned their
faith, has disappointed them by roll
ing up majorities which vie with tho^e
of the Eastern states. Illinois, the great
empire state of the Mississippi valley,
answers Massachusetts with fraternal
voice. Not a state is missing from the
roll until we pass the western border
of lowa. The South has been invaded,
!Wcst Virginia and Maryland give
their electoral votes to McKinley, and
other states in the Southern roll are
ln doubt. It is a victory of such sweep
ing and stupendous proportions as to
cast all thought of party to the winds.
This is indeed that manifestation of
the voice of the people which the po
litital philosopher has likened to the
voice of God.
Thank God the financial question, as
far as the debasement of our currency
Is concerned, is settled forever. Thank
God the men who thought to climb to
power by an appeal lo the issue of
class against class have been visited
by the wrath of the people. It was
those mighty issues that obscured all
else, and welded ail our citizens into
one irresistible mass by the white heat
of their patriotic devotion. Now that
the victory is won. let us cast behind
tir- these, evil anel unworthy things and
set our faces toward the future. This
ls not a victory for party, but one of
the people. No one doubts for a
moment that it was won by Demo
cratic votes. The noble phalanx that
exemplified true Democracy in its sup
port of Palmer and Buckner, and the
thousands of ethers who, seeing their
duty differently, voted for McKinley,
have wrought the work which is flash
ed to the four corners of the earth this
morning. All honor to those who sub
ordinated party to patriotism, and may
their sacrifice not have been in vain.
For the Democracy, there remain.-; the
work of reorganization, and the taking
up of the duty which that party will
forever owe to the republic. For the
Republicans there is the even more
difficult work of ua___ aright this tri
umph, cf wielding power wisely; of
Inaugurating those reforms the-necu
Of which has made the er-.iH« <rf unrost
so powerful and the danger to our na
tional life so great. Let this be neg
lected, let corporate power go uncurbed,
let legislation continue to be prostitut
ed, as it has been, to the benefit of the
turn against the many, and the next
trial of strength will see the now re
pulsed and demoralized forces march
ing on to victory. These are the works
of tho future; these the duties that
tread so closely on the heels of the
j-trenuous labor just performed as te
remind us once more that "eternal vig
ilance is the price of liberty." But
for today it is enough to remembci
that the republic is safe; that indi
\ idual liberty and the institutions that
we love and serve have not perished
from the earth. Above all, may we
thank God that the people have risen
bravely, magnificently to their great
test. Every patriot feels his heart
strengthened, his faith refreshed, his
eoniidence renewed in the answer of
the people to the challenge offered
them. In this sense, the greatest and
highest of all, yesterday's balloting
v.'as a confirmation of the immortal
principle of Democracy. Our trust in
the people is not in vain. Now, in
their name and in that of the God of
nations, let the word be, "Forward."
THE LOCAL RESULT.
The returns from the state are too
meager, at the hour of going to press,
to warrant any- confident statement as
to the state and local tickets. Mc-
Kinley has carried Minnesota by a
plurality that is not likely to fall be
low 35.000 and may rise to 60,000 or
i more. Clough runs far behind the head
I of the ticket, and Lind's heavy vote
has so far trenched upon his strength
that the result of the governorship con
test is still In doubt. If the Republi
can candidate shall prove to be electeel
it will be because cf the landslide that
took everything in its train. The bal
ance of the Republican state candi
dates are no doubt safe.
Ramsey county was carried for Mc-
Kinley by from 4,000 to 5,000. Yet, not
withstanding this immense adverse ma
jority, some of the Democratic county
candidates are certainly elected. John
Wagener has beaten Chapel for sheriff
by a comfortable margin. Dr. Whit
comb is probably elected coroner, and
it seems likely that the rule of non
partisanship is choosing our judges has
been confirmed by the re-election of
the men now upon the bench. Mr.
Stevens will be the next congressman
from this district. Of the other con
gressional candidates, Tawney, Heat
wole and McCleary are certainly elect
ed, and Morris has probably beaten
Towne in the Sixth. la the Seventh,
the returns seem to shew that Lommen
has defeated Eddy. Minneapolis is ex
ceedingly close, and the result is yet
in doubt. Taking both the state as
a whole and the vote in Ramsey county,
the election is the most tremendous
exercise of power by the independent
voter that has ever been seen.
NO BAD TASTE IX THEIR MOITHS.
The story is told of a Detroit Irish
man who, when asked how he was go
ing to vote this year, said: "I've voted
nothing but a Democratic ticket for
twenty-seven years, but this year I'm
going to get me a gallon of whisky and
then I'm going to the polls and vote
for McKinley. After that I'm going
home and get down on my* knees and
ask God to forgive me for doing it, and
then I'll take the whisky and work the
bad taste cut cf my mc;uth."
There is cne* class of voters who went
to tho polls yesterday, taking their
conscience with them, and deposited
their ballots and went home having
neither to ask forgiveness for the bal
let they had cast, nor needing whisky
or any other deodorizer to take any
bad taste out of their m.ruths, for there
| was none there. And, m ore's the pity,
j their number was less than those cast
i ing their ballots for any other presi
dential candidate. Whatever the story
the summing of the ballots may tell,
they know it tells of no victory, no
spoils of office for them. They know
more. They knew that not only have
they "voted in the air," but that they
have shut the door against any politi
cal aspirations any of them might have
indulged. And still they are content,
their consciences easy, their hands
clean and their mouths sweet.
The winners, of whichever party they
may be, will need t. shout loudly to
out-noise the voice it conscience. It
sits in judgment on methods used that
j find no warrant in the code of morals or
i of civics and condemns them. It points
j to ihe- appeals made directly to the
j avarice of men and asks, is this pat-
I rictic? It repeats the promises made
j of gains made lawful only because
i might is right, and asks is a cause
just that demands such service? It
marshals the lies, the forgeries, the
"fakes" by which votes were sought to
be and were won, and asks if it is
thought to build a house on such
j foundations? It asks if a country can
; endure free when elections are caried
by means of money "fried" from men
j who expect to get, in return, leave to
j exact tribute from the masses, cr when
j hatred of mass against class, of labor
i against capital, of workman aginst cm
i ployer is stirred in party behalf. And
| losers will have added to the chagrin
j cf defeat the recollection of these un
i worthy methods vainly used, and their

FITIRE A_lG\_lE_T OF PARTIES.
The most interesting of the many
great questions that are to be settled
now that the election is over is what
is to be the future attitude and align
ment of political parties in this coun
try. For the moment, party lines are j
all in confusion. Not even when the
party of abolition was being built up j.
from fragments of the others was there
so general a transgression of party
relations as in this campaign. Each
one of the candidates in the field has
received a large number of votes from
men who never before in their lives cast
a ballot for the party which he repre
sents. Both Republicans and Demo
crats have become Populists. Repub
licans have joined the National Demo- j
cratic movement. Populists who elo
not enjoy the sight of the Democratic
title at the head of their ticket have
found, for the time being, a congenial I
home in the Republican party. All j
lines of cleavage have been disturbed,
and it will be months or years before
there is a rearrangement of par- !
ties sufficiently stable to form the ba- ]
sis for a political campaign.
It seems to us that the election of |
1896 marks a permanent change in the i
American party system We do not !
mean that party ties will hereafter
always sit more lightly on the mdi- ;
vidual than they have ever before, al- i
though that is undoubtedly true We j
mean that hereafter the struggle for |
political supremacy will probably lie j
between three parties instead of two. !
In past contests there have always
been two leading organizations; one or ,
i the other of which was sure to be vic
torious. Factions have split off from
either from time to time, and third
parties have risen and grown numer- !
ous, but only in the end for the pur- j
pose of impressing the particular doc- j
I trines which they represented upon one
of the two grand divisions As soon
as they succeeded in having their re
form or their mistake, whichever it
might be, adopted, partially or wholly,
by Democrats or Republicans, they
have fused into the body of that par
ty and elisappeared So we have had
an alternation of political theory and
political power, which was necessarily
violent because it meant the suprem
acy of one extreme or another.
This is not the case in most of the
other countries, where there is a par
liamentary government that amounts
to anything. In general, the political
body in such nations is divided into j
three sections They may and do bear
different names, according to the is
sues local to the country where they
exist, but they may all be designated !
broadly by the terms Right, Left and j
Center. These three divisions rep
resent the three controlling tendencies |
of the human mind. One is extremely
radical; another is supremely conserv- j
ative; the third occupies the middle ]
ground between the two, and as it
sways from one to the other they rise
and fall. The conservatives hold on to
power, and run public affairs in the
old groove until changes become imper
ative and reforms will no longer be
denied. The radicals, not satisfied with
moderate changes, rush off into the
oretical experiments that react disas
trously upon the state. Public discon- j
tent then puts them ln the minority. |
Between the two is mobilized the body |
of those who want reform without dis- \
order and conservatism without abuse, j
Such an arrangement is wise.and has j
become necessary In the United States.
It exists today, as a matter of fact,
in the appearance in this campaign of
the Republican party, the Demo-Popu
list party and the National Democratic
party. Regardless of the names they
\ bear, these represent quite accurately ;
the three divisions that we have been I
describing. Republicanism in the cam- :
paign of 1896 stands for the conserva- ;
tion of conditions as they are, includ
ing a vast bulk of evils and privileges
that must be abolished if they are not
to destroy the state. The Populist par
ty, which knows nothing of Democ
racy, except the hyphenated name !
that it chose to bear, stands for wild
vagaries in politics and attempts tc ac
complish necessary reforms by the in
troduction of new abuses. It is like
the man who burned down his house
in order to drive out the rats that in
fested it. The National Democrats ]
stand for the littie division of earnest,
thoughtful men who cannot go to ex
treme lengths with either Republican
or Populist, who believe in the consti
tution and the laws, who will never
rest satisfied with existing abuses, but ;
who insist that these can be remedied !
in an orderly way, through the exer- !
cisc of the political power of the free
and independent voter.
We have here the framework of a I
party organization which will, we j
doubt not, be filled in and established ]
perpetually by coming events. The j
so-called Democratic party, which is
represented by men like Altgeld and j
Tillman among the revolutionists, and
by narrow-minded fossils like Morgan j
and Vest and Harris, has already lost
its balance and toppled over the verge
of the precipice into Populism. They
will find the return difficult or impos
sible, not because Democrats would j
not welcome back these men, but be- |
cause they will not be able themselves
to ascend the cliff. There will be one
great, aggressively radical party in the
future, made up of those who
•have made final surrender to
Populism, and it will probably bear
the name of the People's party*. There
will be one party devoted strongly to
maintaining things as they are, to leg
islative privilege, and strongly opposed
to even necessary reforms. This will
be the Republican party, and will con
sist of those who have been educated
into paternalism, drawing to itself, |
i probably, some of the socialistic ele- |
i ment. From it wall separate, from this
' time on, the vast body of Republicans
■ who believe also in reform. The Na
tional Democrats, the Democrats who
• have voted this year for McKinley
, against their mental protest, but be
cause they believed It necessary, and
: the Republicans who will revolt against
■ the tendency of their order, will consti
■ tute the third and middle aggregation
' in this Union, either actually prepon
' de-rating in numbers, or holding a bal
ance between the other two, and assur
' ing us of reform without revolution, of
progress without loss of stability. This
new alignment begins, we believe, with j
the campaign of 1896. It is consistent j
with the evolution of political parties
throughout the world, and it will !
inure, we are convinced, to the ad- i
vantage of our people and to the ad- j
vancement and safety of the republic.

AT THE THEATERS.
Robert Mantel' and h!s company presented
"Monbars" at the Metropolitan opera house
last night, Mr. Mantell enacting the title
role. "Monbars" is a romantic drama, with
French environment and a characteristic
French flavor. It has two stirring climaxes,
that of the unexpected meeting of Mme. Mon
bars and the lover of her girlhood, in the
presence of her husband, who happens to be
the guardian of the young lover, and the
final scene, in which Monbars, while ill in bed,
detects the villain putting poison in his medi
cine, and, after a life and death struggle,
kills the scoundrel.
Mr. Mantell has won well merited praise for
his intense and vivid portrayal of this role.
The play would better commend itself to the
discriminating admirer of the drama if the
sensational episode of the first act, that of
seeming to cauterize the wound inflicted by
a savage dog, were omitted. It is a piece of
disagreeable realism, creditable, perhaps, to
the ingenuity of the property man, but in
no wise worthy of the art of the actor. Yet
this very Incident served, by reason of its
novelty, to advertise the drama, and to that
extent doubtless contributed to the popularity
it enjoyed during its early career.
The company was, In the main, satisfac

Hon. P. H. Stolberg, of Harris, Minn.,
delivered an able discourse on the ne

carry on educational work, in which
he took the ground that the state
could not, on account of the many re
ligious sects and denominations give
the moral and religious instruction so
necessary for the development of the
whole man, but that their work was
reserved for the church.
In the afternoon the College Mis
sion society celebrated its fifth anni

tendent of ail the foreign missions, ad
dressed the society in the college au
ditorium on the subject, "Obstacles in

by the society during its five years of
existence, stating that nearly $1,000
had been raised for the foreign mis

The closing anniversary exercises
were held in the evening when the

Thrown Out and Killed.
CHAMBERLAIN, S. D., Nov. 3.— An old
man named Myers, a prominent farmer of
Crystal Lake township. Aurora county, was
thrown from his wagon and killed. He had
been trading at White Lake, and as the team
returned home alone, a search was instituted,
resulting in finding his body lying by the

Sensational Reports From Spain
Without Foundation of Truth.
MADRID, Nov. 3.— The sensational
report circulated in the United States
by a news agency that the town of
Huelva has been swept by a tidai wave
from the Atlantic ocean, and that it is
known that the loss of life has been
terrible, is untrue. It is also false that
the steamship Cartagena has been
overwhelmed by a great wave, and that
most of the persons on board of her
were drowned. The two sensations
were probably based upon the effects
of the cyclone which swept over Se
ville on Wednesday last, which caused
a number of fatal wrecks. The bodies
of the drowned are now coming ashore
at Huelva and at Cartagena, the Span
ish seaport in the Mediterranean, and
almost onto the side of Spain, a sailing
vessel has foundered, and it is feared
several persons were drowned. This
apparently was the basis upon which
the startling statement of the "over
whelming" of the steamship Cartagena
and the "drowning of most of the per
sons on board her" were based.

* CANTON, 0., Nov. 3.— Canton was in
a whiri of excitement tonight from the
time the returns began to come in. It
Avas distinctively a McKinley crowd on
the street, and as the bulletins came
more and more in his favor the en
thusiasm grew. It was not until after
midnight that Mr. McKinley acknowl
edged any congratulations. Then he
stepped onto the front porch from
which he has made so many speeches
and bowed his thanks for the ovation
given him. He made no formal ad
At 8 o'clock definite returns began
coming in, and preparations were made
for reading them in the McKinley li
brary; the doors being open tei all who
chose to come in. A message from
James Manley, at New York head- j
"Maine's majority for McKinley will
reach 50,000," and this was soon fol
lowed by another Manley dispatch
saying that "New York state will give
McKinley 200.000 majority." Then the
favorable returns from Maine and j
Nebraska were read. Major McKinley j
seemed cool and apparently oblivious |
to the exclamations of approval from
the friends who crowded about him.
In the parlor across the hall, Mrs.
McKinley and her near relatives anel |
friends received the returns. It was a i
trying ordeal for her, as she had been
in ' bed with the grippe up to early j
evening, but was determined to be |
about while the decisive results were j
By 8 o'clock the character of the
private dispatches and general returns [
leaching the McKinley house were
such that a feeling of absolute confi
dence took possesion of those centered
in the major's library. The officials at
the Chicago headquarters sent fre
quent private messages to Major Mc-
Kinley, each one swelling the total of
states claimed as certain for the Re
At 9 o'clock the major's nephew Mr.
Sexton, emerged from the parlor and
handed to Mr. Cooper a private dis
patch just received, to be read. It was
from Garret A. Hobart, vice president
ial candidate, who at this early hour,
felt that the victory was won, and tele
graphed his congratulations. There
was a round of applause from the group
within the library, as Mr. Hobart's
words were read. Soon, thereafter, Maj.
McKinley came from the parlor and
jedned the crowd in the outer room.
Another dispatch to Mr. McKinley gave
the estimate of Dr. Jameson, chairman
of the Republican committee, of Illinois,
as follows: "Our reports indicate that
we will run over 100,000 for McKinley j
and Tanner." About this time word i
came from Cleveland that the Tlppe
eanoe_club, which has a national repu
tation, had just started 1,000 strong to |
congratulate the next president.
At 10:30 o'clock Maj. McKinley greet
ed a orowel of ladies who came to con
gratulate him and Mrs. McKinley. The
ladies expressed their feelings with
hearty handshakes and demonstrative
expressions. The major was in a hap
py mood and received congratulations
with a pleasant remark to each of the
callers, to none of them, however, did
he give any indication that he was
convinced of his election.
The most demonstrative applause of
the evening came at 9:30 p. m., when a
bulletin was read announcing that Mc-
Kinley had carried Bryan's precinct by
197 plurality. The applause was taken
up by the ladies acre,ss the hall and
rang for half a minute.
It was not until the reports from Il
linois, reinforcing those of Ohio, In
e'iana, lowa, Nebraska, Kentucky anel
the East, had made assurance doubly
_ure< that the chief actor in the scene
of enthusiasm turned to receive the
congratulations pressed upon him from
all sides and was forced to believe that
the Republican national ticket had car
ried the day.
At 12:30 a. m. McKinley received a
tremendous ovation from his Canton
townspeople. He took a position on
top of the porch of his residence anci
waved his salutations to the enthusi
astic concourse. The midnight was
made light as day by hundreds of flam
beaux and blazing fires of red and
green. Maj. McKinley made no ad
oress. For an hour the remarkable
spectacle proceeded. The whistles of
all the factories joined in one long
continued screech, v/hich echoed
throughout the town, mingled with
which was the booming of cannon, the
firing of guns and pistols and the
shouts from thousands of throats. The
crowd was massed solidly for three:
squares down Market street.
AT BRYAN'S HOME.
Tlie Nominee Received the Returns
LINCOLN, Neb., Nov. 3.— Mr. Bryan
received election returns tonight at his
home, over a special wire. He remain
ed during the evening in his private
rcom. in the second story of his house,
leaving the first floor to the newspaper
correspondents. He told them if he
had any communications to make to
them he would notify them.
The bulletins relating to the state and
congressional ticket in Nebraska were
unsatisfactory, and it was nearly im
possible to form an estimate from them.
Results from scattering precincts were
received, and the little group gathered
in the* library of the home of the nomi
nee compared them as best it could with
the results of those of four years ago.
The members of the party figured it
out that Bryan would, in all likelihood,
carry the state. The returns on the
congressional vote, as made to Mr.
Bryan, were of no value and nothing
could be learned from them. State
Chairman Dahlman, of the Democratic
state committee, telephoned from Oma
ha that McKinley's majority there
would be only about 600 or SOO, and
that he counted the state safe for Bryan
by about 15,000.
The newspaper correspondents who
gathered at Mr. Bryan's house for the
purpose of receiving election returns
found a comfortable quarter on the
lower floor of the building, and the
figures were brought to them without
effort on their part, but they might as
well have been in the offices of their
respective papers, so far as getting at
Mr. Bryan was concerned. He remain
ed in his room during the entire even
ing with the exception of a few min
utes when he descended the stairs and
exchanged greetings with his journal
istic callers, but he then and after
vards declined positively, though court
eously, to make any statement for pub
At 12 o'clock the correspondents at
the Bryan home, awaiting the results,
were served with lunches, at 12:30 the
library was closed and no more bulle
tins were received. Mr. Bryan was
asleep and no orue was allowed to see
Message From Hobart.
CANTON, 0., Nov. 3.— At 9 o'clock Maj.
McKinley received a telegram of congratula
tions from his associate on the national ticket
'•CongratulatlOTfUi with all my heart on the
guorious achievement under your magnificent
leadership. The manhod of the republic has *
asserted itself, and the nation's honor an.l
integrity will never again be assailed by tha
same force. Mrs. Hobart joins me in con
gratulations. ' -Garret A. Hobart."
PLEASANT FOR REPUBLICANS.

Come All Their Way.
CHICAGO, Nov. 3.-Th*e first message
itceived at the National Republican
headquarters tonight that did not deal
in vague promises came from Donald
"vlaekay, the chairman of the Oregon
state central committee. It was as
follows: "The city of Portland give?
a majority of 5,000 for McKinley and
this insures the state for the Republi- _»
"This is a good one to start on," said
\ ice Chairman Payne, "but it's only
the first rain drop of the coming de
luge. We will have Dlenty more of
the same sentiment bye and bye."
Then ensued an hour of indefinite
messages from ail parts of the coun
tiy, all of them, however, being of an
encouraging nature to the Republican
cause. Then came a message from Bal
timore, saying that Chairman Rusk
of the Democratic city central commit
tee, conceded that city to McKinley by
,0,000. "That means Maryland for us,
I think." said Mr. Payne, quietly, "we ..
are going now and they will never "

snower that seemed never to cease.

telegraph instrument ticked off the
message from Chairman Ferry, of the
Michigan state central committee
"Michigan is safe for McKinley by 50.
--000." This news was cried out of the
window to the crowd below and tht,
howl in the halls above was a gentle
whisper to the wild roar from the pave
The next chairman to report with
elefinite assurances was Bixby, of Min
nesota, who said that his common
wealth wanted Mr. McKinley and want
ed him to the tune of 30,000 to 35,000.
This came in a few minutes before S
e-'clock. Vice Chairman Payne at this
time sent out a telegram to Chairman
Hanna in Cleveland and to the various
state chairmen saying: "McKinley ha.'
carried Chicago by about 00,000. Re
turns from Michigan, Illinois, lowa,
Kentucky and Minnesota show that
those states are safe for McKinley."
The report from Nebraska head
quarters to the effect that Bryan would
be beaten in his own state by a plural
ity of 13,000 gave the liveliest satisfac
tion and the cheers were long and loud
when from the East came news of
equally cheering nature. Gen. Osborne,
the secretary of the New York com
mittee, sent word that McKinley hau
carried Maryland, West Virginia by
:'.>,000 and New York by 300,000. Then
the West spoke up once more and lowa
sent word that Bryan would be 80,000 •
to the rear when the final roll was
(Tilled. Then came the South with a
promise of 20,000 votes to the good in
Tennessee and a safe majority in the
Democratic stronghold in Virginia; At
S o'clock Vice Chairman Payne sent
the following message to Chairman
Hanna: "We now claim Ohio by 50.

REBUKE TO ANARCHY,
Says the State Republican Commit
tee of Illinois.
CHICAGO, Nov. 3.— The Republican
state central e*ommittee has issued the
To the citizens of Illinois: The Re
publican state central committee con
gratulates you on your action at the
polls today, which places the Western
Empire state at the head of the list
of honest anel law-abiding common
wealths in this union. The election of
Gov. Tanner by a plurality equal to
the wonderful strength of prelection is (
a tribute to his worth and a declara
tion that the people cf Illinois know
he will give them a good administra
tion. We possibly return a solid dele
gation to the lower house of congress
to support the president-elect in a
policy which will benefit the whole
country, and secure a legislature
which will send to the senate a Re
publican in place of Gen. John M.
Palmer. The verdict will be received
with joy by the entire nation. The
defeat of Altgeld and his heresy of
antagonism to the courts was not less
important than the rebuke to the free
silver heresy. Illinois stands proudly
before the civilized world as leading '
the advance guard in the battle for
the great principles for which the Re
publican party fights.
— C. P. Hitch, chairman.
At the S__— F__s the Party Made In
CHICAGO, Nov. 3.— Returns from
over the state of Illinois indicate that
McKinley has made as big gains in
proportion throughout the counties and
towns as he has in Chicago, seeming
to justify the claim of the central com
mittee that the state has gone 100,000
Republican. If the gains, which are al
ready reported, hold up in the districts
yet to be heard from, the majority, it
is said, will exceed that figure. In the
southern part of the state, the gains
have not been so heavy and several
towns and counties were reported as
having given Bryan small majorities.
In the dispatches ceimparing the votes
of Tanner and McKinley, the former
has in most instances run slightly be
hind the latter. The figures, however,
plainly show that Tanner's loss was no
gain for Altgeld. Forman was the
gainer. Comparisons made with the
vote cast for Harrison in 1892, show
very heavy gains in nearly every in
stance over the Republican vote cast
that year. At headquarters consider
able surprise was occasioned over Mc-
Kinley's vote in a number of counties
which were expected to give Bryan ma
jorities, but which instead, have gone
for. the Republican candidate.
