HOW M'KINLEY GOT THE NEWS
Hear of Ills llnthiislnstlr Hiidorcc
ment by the Ainerlc-on People
lit Ills Home.
Returns from Nebraska precinct outslds
of Omaha and Douglas county are compar
atively meager, yet indicate steady and
substantial gains for McKInley and the
republican ticket. The returns from 260
odd precincts outside ot Douglas county are
14,062 for McKInley and 12,799 for Bryan,
being a majority for McKInley of L263
These same precincts in 1896 gave McKIn
ley 11.242 and Bryan 12,437, or 11 majority
for Bryan of 1.195. The change in these
precincts, therefore, transforms a Bryan
majority into a McKInley majority, repre
senting a republican gain of 2,458 out of
some 26.000 votes, or nearly 10 per cent.
If this ratio of gains keep up throughout
the state McKinley will secure the elec
toral vote of Nebraska by a substantial
On governor, returns are now more In
complete, but ro far as received point to
Dietrich's election as the republican candi
date, by a margin over Poynter, about the.
same as on the presidential ticket.
On tho other offices no definite flgurcR
can be offered
At 9:45 p. m. Chairman Lindsay of the
republican state central committee tald:
'It is reasonably certain that McKlnlry
hat carried Nebraska by from 6,000 to 7,000
plurality, and it may be larger. We have
recehed reports from fllty-two precincts
from the towns seatte-ed over the .atat"
Mid theso gtvr WcKlnUy t.Vfli. Urjan liCLt,
ae compared with McKinley 5,140 and Bryan
4,573 in 1896, a net republican gain of 471.
This ratio of change, if kept up, will give
Nebraska to McKInley. Returns on the
state ticket are indefinite, and it looks as if
the contest between Dietrich and Poynter
will be very close. Both of these, nccordlng
to meager reports thus far received, arc
running behind tbelr tickets. Nothing has
been received nt this hour on the rest of
the state ticket or on congressional candi
dates that would Juitlfy a prediction.
Shortly after midnight Chairman Lindsay
said: "Everything goes to indicate that
we have elected our state ticket and that
McKinley will carry the state by from
10,000 to 12,000. We have received reports
up to this hour from 1SS precincts and
they give McKinley 17.787 and Bryan 14,168
The same precincts In 1S96 gave McKinley
I 15.027 and Bryan 14.671. a net republican
gain of 3,263. This shows a change In
favor of the republicans of more than
twenty-three to a precinct and as there
are approximately l.fcOO voting precincts In

CANTON. O.. Nov. C. The president In
person read aloud eomo of the returns, but
refrained from making any comment what
ever on the result and accepting with un
ruffled composure the favorable reports,
which began to come in -at an early hour.
Secretary Cortelyou read most of the dis
patches, some of the more cheering an
nouncements being heartily applauded by
the guests. Most ot the early advices were
fragmentary and inconclusive, but the
strong Indications that New York and
probably Illinois hod gone for McKIn
ley were received with great satisfaction.
At 9 o'clock the president received a
dispatch from an enthusiastic individual
stating that New YorK and Illinois cameo,
the day for McKInley and that he was re
elected. The responsible leaders made no early
claims, however, although their dispatches
told of gains at many points and breathed
the spirit of victory near at hand.
The president's first congra'ulatlons from
headquarters came from J. H. Manley. at
New York, as follows:
"Praise God. from whom all blessings
flow. Your triumphant re-election 1b con
ceded by democratic managers. I tender
my earnest congratulations. We are very
happy at headquarters."
Up to 11 o'clock the president gave no
Intimation to those nearest to him as to
his own convictions on the results, although
It was the general view of those at the
house that his re-election was assured be
yond a doubt The advices from head
quarters here have been uniformly lover
ably. The announcement that Croker eon
csded New York and Illinois to McKInley
