The election on Tuesday, Nov. Gth,
resulted in an overwhelming victory
for McKinley and Rloosevelt, and thu
consequent defeat of Bryan and Steven
son. Mr. Bryan sent congratulations
to President Mc inley, saying . At
the close of another Priniiiental Cam
paign It, is my lot to congratulate you
upon a second victory." The President
was at his home in Canton, Ohio,
where he received congratulations
fibrn all over the country, hut he

McKinley has been elected by an in
creased electoral vote, and his popular
majority will reach 1,000,000 when it,
was only a half million four years ago.
The latest claim is that he will receive
292 electoral voted, while Bryan will
.get only 145.
*The Republicans will control both
Sbranches of Congress by substanttal
majorities. It is claimned that they
will have a majority of fifty in the
* House and twenty in the Senate.
They have gained a Senator in Utah,
two in Delaware, one in South Dakota,
and will 1111 the vacancy in Pennsyl
vania by electing Q..uay. The D.emo
crats gain two Senators, one ini Colo

The latest news from Nebraska is
that the State has gono Ltc-publican
and the R.epublicans may hold the
Liegisiature, which makes them gain
one Senator there, making t ho not
gain three, andl If Idaho turns otut to
have elected a liepuhilean L.egislaturc,
the net gain of the lI epubilecans in the
Senate will he live. The lI'epuhtican
majority is then certain to Ije twenty.
Thle Rtepublicans claim that Mc
Kinley has carried Ca. ifornima, Con

Iown, Knsas', Kentucky, Maine, Mary

TlMIODY 18 VERY IIAP'PY,
Governor Itoosevelt has commented
as follows upon the Htopublican victory:
"I rejoice beyond measure over the
way the vote has gone. President Mc
Kinley had to face the most serious
and complIcated problems that have
been faced by any president since Lin
coin, or by~ any presidentt a generation
before fGincolni. I do not see how there
could have been any material improv
mnent in the way lie has raced and
solved each of them. It therefore seems
to me a perfectly fair test of the way
nur eopnne are. wrilling to backr nn a man
wiho ha done tuch dillicult and all in
p)ortan t work for the nation. I think
thaitt the sulrenile capacity tor succese
ful so. governent In a nation is clear
ly Ohown by the struggle through
which the nation has just passed. To
have failed to endorse I'resident Me
Kinley would have been a calamity
comparable only to a failuro to c1
dorso President Lincoln inl 1861. All
far-sighted and patriotic Americans
feel deeply thankful for the way in
which the American people as a whole
have shown their good sense and abso
luto adherence to the cause of honesty
and national honor.
"Again It should be i. matter of the
deepest gratification at the way those
Democrats stood fir sound money.
They, having joined hando with their
Ipublican brethren, sharo the credit
for a victory which represents far more
than any partisan victory. In this con
test. for true Americanism the men
who believe in It have stood togtether
without regard to locality or pliaceo of
birth, without reizard to creed or race
origin, without regard to occupation
or any thing else excepting the needs
of Americanship, in a way that is spleti
