HOT SUCH A BIG SLIDE
Election of McKinley Not
Much to Brag On.
RESULT SLILL UNDETERMINED

Chairman Jones Retains Confidence.
Chicago, Nov. 4. It is reasonably
certain that McKinley is elected, but
the majority is likely, from indica
tions, to be narrow, ranch narrower
than looked for. as a result of the
earlier dispatches. The following
is very close, with probabilities
strongly in favor of Bryan. North
Carolina, with 11 votes, is claimed
by both, but is probably going for
Bryan. The same is true of South
Dakota, with fonr votes.
The situation, therefore, may be
reduced to this: Certain for McKin
ley, 229; almost certain for McKin
ley, 18: indications for McKinley,
25. Certain for Bryan, 135; proba
ble for Ervan, 23; doubtful, 26.
The popular majority in the entire
country will, without doubt, be the
greatest ever cast, exceeding even
that given Grant over Greeley in T2.
McKinley carried every state east of
Missouri and north of the Ohio and
