Defamation of American soldiers doing their duty In a distant field does not seem to pay any better than defamation of pri vate character at home. Four years more of a foreign. policy that has brought American diplomacy the high est measure of praise in our history and which antagonizes Bryanism at every point. ' Four years more of providential escape from what Grover Cleveland termed in his last Thanksgiving proclamation, issued the day after Bryan's defeat In 1S96 "dire dis aster." Four years more of policies that hava made the American flag respected and the American army and navy honored throughout the world as they never were before. Yesterday was the third vote of confi dence Indiana has given in William Mc Kinley first In 1856, then In 1S93 and now In 1X0. There is no mistaking the voice of the Hoosler State. Yesterday's election Insures the preserva tion of the great industrial and commer cial interests of the country and guarantees the continuance of national prosperity for many years to come. In several of his speeches Mr. Bryan said that people (meaning Republicans) who could not get an Idea Into their heads would be very apt to "get it In the neck." He knows how it is himself now. Of all the worthless predictions that have teen made regarding the election those of 'Boss" Croker were probably the most bo. Chairman Jones, though a rainbow chaser c&d braggart, was la a position to know o UtUa gcmcthlcj about general political condition?, and the same might be said of other Democratic managers connected with the national campaign. But Croker knew nothing- outside of New York State, tnd very Httlo outside of the city. The great middle Western and Northwestern States arenas far beyond his Knowledge as Sanscrit or Confucian literature. He Is simply & New York cockney of the nar rowest and most ignorant typo. For him to undertake to diagnose the political situa tion and forecast the result in the country at large outside of the field of the baneful infiuer., e of Tammany was as absurd as it would Le for the most ignorant hod carrier In Indianapolis to attempt to calculate the elements of the next solar eclipse. Croker knows Tammany, but he does not know anything else In politics. A 3IEASLIICLCSS VICTORY. The great battle has been fought and won In every State In which votes are cast and counted, in the history of the country there has not been a more significant and emphatic political triumph than that of yesterday. At this writing President Mc Kinley has received at least 2S1 electoral votes to 166 for Mr. Bryan. Fuller returns may give the Republican candidates an ln- creased electoral vote. In the Eastern States the pluralities of Mr. McKinley are, . iarep - fn11P vnrq hut In mnt not as large as iour years ago, Dut in most 0f tne Western States the pluralities are as large as they were in ISM. While the returns are not complete It is fair to assume from those which have been published that the next national House of Representatives will be Republican by a larger majority than the party has in the present House. Next to the election of a Republican President, the election of a Republican House Is Important. In the splendid array of Republican States none outshines Indiana. Others have larger pluralities, but in none was the con flict so Intense. In other States it was a question of the thousands that would measure the plurality in Indiana it, was a struggle for individual votes. A plurality of less than 18,000 In 1896 in a total vote of over 635.000 is a margin that a loss of 1 per cent, by the Republicans and a corre sponding gain for the Democrats would have wiped out. In the State are 3,302 pre cincts a loss of three Republican votes to a precinct and a corresponding gain by the Bryanltes would have given Indiana to them. Upon the Republican columns in In diana the Bryan leaders made their most persistent assaults. Hither he came to ac cept his nomination, and twice afterward Mr. Bryan assailed that narrow plurality. Against that slender plurality tho mallg- nants of the Prohibition following: massed strenuous efforts, but in vain. , , . , , Republican plurality of from 23.000 to 30.000. If Indiana held its plurality of 1S9G it would be entitled to a place In the front rank because it has withstood the repeated as saults of the Bryan national committee and the money furnished by Boss Croker. All hail Republicans and Sound-money Demo crats of Indiana never was a victory more gallantly fought and splendidly won! GOVERNOR ROO&EVELT AXD TAM MAXY. The prompt and effective manner In which Governor Roosevelt brought Mayor Van Wyck to time in requiring him to re voke the order of Chief of Police Devery relative to the action ot the police on elec tion day was very Eccseveltian and very admirable. To understand the true inward ness of the situation it must be remem bered that the chief. cf police is a tool of Richard Croker, and Mayor Van Wyck is also a creature of Tammany. The mayor appoints the police beard, who elect the chief, and Is the responsible executive head of the city government. The election laws of the State of Nev York provide for the appointment of a superintendent of elec tions with power to appoint deputies to protect voters, preserve peaco and rrevent illegal voting. On Sunday last Chief of Police Devery Issued the following instruc tions to all commanders of police in the city: Tactics and methods of intimidation per petrated upon resectable citizens who have, been cne year in th? State, four months in any of the four counties of New York city, who havo residoi thirty days in an election district and who are legal voters, by John McCullagh, superintendent of elections, will not be tolerated or per mltted by tho police cepartment. This was a plain defiance Ly the chief of police and notice to the Stato superintend ent of elections to keep handi off of the election in New York city. The order was undoubtedly inspired by "Boss" Croker, and was calculated if not intended to bring about collisions and violence be tween the police and the deputies of the superintendent of elections. As the State law makes it a penal offense to resist or interfere with the superintendent of elec tions or his deputies in the performance of their duties th-3 defy issued by the chief of police mado a case for the action of tho chief executive of tho State. Gov ernor Roosevelt promptly assumed the re sponslblllty, and instead of warning Chief Devery he warned Mayor Van Wyck that he would be held responsible for what ever breach of the peace, infraction of the law or intimidation of voters might occur under Devery' s order. In his com munication to the mayor the Governor said: I will not fail to call to summary ac count either State or city authorities In event of either being guilty of intimidation or connivance at fraud or failure to protect every legal voter in ms rights. I. there fore, hereby notify you that in the event of any wrongdoing following upon the fail ure immediately to recall Chief Devery'3 order, or upon any action or Inaction on the part of Chief Devery I must neces sarily call you to account. The effect of this communication was to bring about a hurried consultation be tween the mayor and chief of police, and an order from the former tor the revoca tion of the order of last Sunday. "You will at once," wrote the mayor, "revoke the order Issued from your office on the 4th Inst., relative to the duties of the po lice force on ' election day and you will issue immediately such further orders a will require your subordinates to co-operate with and asslsr in the execution and enforcement of ths metropolitan election district law and amendments thereto." Thus the Tammany mayor was brought to se the propriety of overruling his chief of police, who was preparing to make trouble in the interest of Tammany and Bryan. The American people admire a man who is willing to assume responsibility when the law requires him to do so. Governor Roosevelt U that kind of a man, and, bt- ing honest, fearless and Invulnerable, he Is not afraid to exercise all the powers he possesses for the enforcement of law. The result of the presidential election four years ago added materially to the standing and prestige of the country abroad. A London cablegram the dav after election said: "The election of Major McKinley to the presidency of the United States has had a marked effect on American securities here to-day." Yes terday's election affirming and emphasiz ing that of 1S9G, will have an equally marked and beneficial effect. The enthusiastic crowd in front of the Journal office last night cheered the good news vigorously, but its deafening cheers were reserved for the stars and stripes whenever they were displayed upon the canvas. They believe in a dominant Amer ican flag. Before this time next week the publlo will be so absorbed In business and per sonal concerns generally that It will hard ly remember that It has had an election. American citizens attend to politics with great energy when occasion requires, but only a few of them work at It between sea sons. The tendency of the Australian ballot law is to encourage the voting of the straight ticket. Preparing a scratched ticket involves complications which the average man, fearful of losing his vote, hesitates to risk. The march of prosperity which was tem porarily retarded by a presidential cam paign involving very threatening possi bilities will now be resumed in full vigor with William McKinley at the head of the procession. Four years more of a party that believes the American people will establish wise and Just government in any territory that may come under the flag either by con quest, annexation or purchase. The question has been decided. The workingmen of the United States have de clared that they prefer a full dinner pall to an empty one and the protection of Amer- can industries to free trade. , The slande- mill of the Sentinel can be dismantled for four years. In which Inter- val may It learn that It Is not good pol- itlcs to defime American soldiers in the face of the fee. Mr. Bryan can comfort himself with the certainty that nobody will question his record as the long-distance champion talker. It is the death of Bryanism, Tammany- ism and Agulnaldolsm, for which a patriot ic and law-loving people should be gen uinely grateful. It is a Joy to feel that thousands of Democrats in Indiana are ready for thanks giving because of the defeat of Bryan. Mr. Bryan will now have ample oppor tunity to prosecute his Investigations as to the safety of the young man Absalom. After giving the matter careful consid eration, American workingmen declined to vote themselves out of employment. But, after all, Mr. Bryan has had a good time talking and two good twelve-dollar dinners with Boss Croker. In the downfall of Boss Croker the little Tammany of Indianapolis should see the handwriting on the wall. The people of this country do not want William Jennings Bryan, tnd he should now understand It. The Hon. Parks Martin will revise his series of ponderous prophetic utterances at his leisure. It may be observed that flag-furling is not a good paramount issue with the American people. And Webster Davis where was he when Bryanism went down in impenetrable gloom? Talk is talk, but it isn't all that is re quired to elect a President of the United States. Prosperity is too flattering a condition to be voted down ty the American peo ple. "Never haul down the American flag" was the people's declaration yesterday. Tuesday, Nov. 6, 1900. will be regarded as another American red-letter day. The country has lots of sense when it faces a serious proposition. The people have declared again ln favor of sound money. BUBBLES IN THE AIR. Some Cause for Joy Yet. "Well.

I Early They Knetr that Their Efforts to Carry the Election Had Been Unsuccessful. At midnight last night there was no I longer any doubt of the election of the cntire county ticket by large majorities. , . , , About 12 o'clock County Chairman Akin, at the Columbia Club, made the state- ment that he believed Marlon county would give McKinley a majority of from 7.000 to 8.000. and he was of opinion that the county ticket would be elected by a majorlty of about 4,500. It was estimated that Representative Overstreet would not Chairman Akin said there was no doubt that the Democrats made the. most des- perate attempts to work their schemes f f wi, me auempieu woiwi.uu colonization of colored voters. . Notwithstanding this, ho said, the Democracy was badly waipped in the county. The returns show substantial gains In many parts of the city and county. One of the city precincts . showing the heaviest gain was in' Captain" English's precinct .u... k cttu ta Th inn iiin Lceu lii ui u v uiau ""vm ..w returns from this precinct show a Repub 4rtritv nf it vmir vears aro in lican majority of U. .1 our j ears ago in v, -mA nrorinet the HeDublican ma- " f ? rw vP9r tien thoro was a Republican majority of 5 In this precinct. ... - Captain English 13 much pleased with the situation In his precinct. , Precinct 13, of the Third ward, gave Mc- Kinley a gain of thirty-five and twenty- five precincts showed a new gain for Mc Kinley of 600. One very flattering report sent to the Press Bureau last night an nounced a gain of nineteen ln the second precinct of Center township and in twenty precincts a gain of 431. Tho report, which was official, stated that at this ratio Mc Kinley would have a majority of 8,300. At a late hour last night the Press Bureau announced that returns from fifty seven precincts in Marion county, gave Mc Kinley 6.820, and Bryan 4,572. This would make McKlnley's plurality in these fifty- seven precincts, 2,248. The second precinct of the Fifteenth ward gave a net gain for Bryan of 26. About 1:30 o'clock this morning the Press Bureau announced that sixty-eight pre cincts gave MeKInley 7,559 and Bryan 5,113. At the same hour It was announced that more precincts had been heard from north of Washington street, than south of this thoroughfare. About 1:30 the Press Bureau again announced that at the present ratio of gains McKinley would carry Marion county by about 7,000. This was near the figure speculated on by the county chair man. Secretary Elliott and others about midnight. A few minutes after 2 o'clock this morn ing it was stated that seventy-two pre cincts gave MeKInley a plurality of 3,022 and on the strength of this the Press bureau issued the following statement: "This ratio will give the county to Mc Kinley by nearly 10,000,- but more than half of these precincts are from the north side and from best estimates It would indicate McKlnley's carrying the county by 7,000 to 8,000." The figuring up of the returns from tho election in Marlon county progresses with distressing slowness. Up to 4 o'clock this mcrning only ninety-eight out of 240 pre cincts had been heard from at the Joint bureau. . These precincts gave McKinley 12,979 and Bryan 8,849. If this ratio Is main tained throughout the entire 240 precincts McKlnley's plurality will be 10.128. South Side Precincts. At 4 o'clock this morning reports from sixty-four precincts in the county showed a gain for MeKInley of 1.024, an average gain of sixteen to the precinct. The Joint press bureau gave out the information that this per cent, of gain was not so large as had been reported during the night. It was stated that McKinley, seemed to be losing slightly in the county, but this was accounted for on the ground that the strongly Democratic South Side precincts were beginning to report. It was estimated that at that present ratio McKlnley's plu rality would be decreased a little from the original estimate of from 7,000 to 8,000 and would probably be about 6,5)0 unless there were further Republican gains to bring the figures up again. On County Ticket. The first returns on the county ticket be gan to come ln about 2 o'clock this morn ing. A little after 2 o'clock it was an nounced officially that thirty-eight pre cincts gave Koehne, candidate for treas urer, 4,727 votesi and SIndlinger, 3,378 votes. At 6 o'clock this morning returns from LU precinct ln the city, received at the press bureau, gave McKinley a plurality of 4.G07. It was estimated that this ratio, It kept uj?, would give McKinley a plural ity of about 6,100 in the county. The coun ty ticket, it was said, was runnig 200 or 300 behind the national and State ticket. The returns from these precincts showed that W. T. Durbln' had received 14,353 votes; John W. Kern, 10.3SS; Union B. Hunt, for secretary of state, 14,172; Adam Helmberger, 10,129; Leopold Levy, for f treasurer of state, 14,009; Jerome Herff, J 10.357. Returns from eight precincts in the out I townships gave Hugh H. Hanna. Repub- llcan presidential elector, SCO votes; Allen Zollars, Democratic elector, ,73$; W. T. I Durbin. S13; John W. Kern, 737; Union B. Hunt, 849; Adam Helmberger, 734; Leopold I Levy, 848; Jerome Herff, 734. STATE CHAIRMAN'S STATE3IENT. Mr. Ilernly Rcvlerre Situation and Offer Congratulation. Republican State Chairman Hernly was Jubilant to the last degree over the result of yesterday's election.

It Is a conclusive evidence that the people of America love their country and its institutions. The election of McKinley, to my mind, is one of the greatest and surest evidences that the American people will maintain forever the grandest republic that has ever been organized among men. RESULT OF ELECTION. "The result of this election," continued Mr. Hernly, "means food and clothing to the children, happiness and contentment to the laboring men and the homes. Bryan- ism has received its death blow, and Popu- Usm has been swept from the face of our country. I have never changed my mind ,1f w, frnm v0 tjme thj3 campaign commenced. I have al- ways claimed that Indiana would give Mc- Kinley 30.000 to 40,000 plurality, and I be- lieved that what I knew, and the evidences . . , . fied me ln maklng that claim.

Bryan lost ground steadily from the time he started his campaign ln Indiana, and especially did he lose ground ln the gas belt after he made nIs free trade speeches to the labor- hng people. In fact, Bryan and Bryanism have not been popular with the people since he made the miserable raise propne . TV ,T i V paramount issues.

I look for Mr. Bryan to announce his candidacy for the presidency In a few days and believe that the Demo crats would still continue to run him, and I sincerely hope they will. CONTINUED PROSPERITY. "The re-election of MeKInley means good times and continued prosperity, and It means the end of the Philippine war. It means honor to America at home and prestige abroad. It means that the band of outlaws who are in open rebellion against the authority of our flag in the Philip- Tines will cease to shoot down American Eoldiers. It means that our army Is soon to be returned home in triumph and the boys that are wearing the blue will be sent to their homes and families, and peace will' rign over our country. It means that the people ot me ruuipnie isiaaus ciijuy the fruits of our great religious and in tellectual freedom as fast as they are able to comprehend and receive the same. "This election is most glorious, it is a triumph of the right, it 13 a triumph of law and order against disorganization, it Is a blow to Tillmanlsm, to Altgeldlsm, to Crokerism, to Bryanism and to all the other isms. God save the country from such an aggregation of isms as have been rung in on us by the Bryanltes in the campaign Just closed. "I congratulate all the Republicans in In diana because, of all tho States that voted. this proud old Hoosler commonwealth Is at the top of the heap and, ln proportion to her vote and the conditions that she had to contend with, but made the most won derful showing of any State that voted. I congratulate all the good Republicans who had hold of the organization with me ln this contest and thank them most cor dially for their valuable assistance, and I promise them ln the future that I shall always do my part to assist to further the best Interests of the Republican party and I appeal to Republicans everywhere to stand for good government. I con gratulato tho State and county officers that have Deen eiectea ana extend my sympathies to the poor boys who have gone down to defeat in counties and townships throughout the State. They are our broth- ers and we love them still. They made a gallant fight, but the Democrats have car ried so few counties that we have much to be proud of." FOü COLONEL DURBIN. "I congratulate the candidate for Gov ernor, Colonel Wlnfi Id T. Durbin, on the magnificent race he made, together with a'l the other r.ominecs on th2 State ticket. They all lent valuable assistance, an! too much cannct be said ln their praise, i congratulate Colonel Durbln on the splen did result In his home county, the coun;y of Madison, which tho Don-ccrats claimed they would carry by 1.500. "I congratulate the thirteen nominees for Congress those that arc elected and I sympathize most sincerely with thosa that are deflated. There Las never been a campaign in our State when more gal lant, true, loyt workers were on the Re publican ticket than the thirteen nominees for CongresM this year. "Wha. a glorious achievement Is this election to the Republicans of Indiana! Indiana Is now a relUtly Republican State, and I appeal to all of the Repub licans to be harmonious end to etand by the principles advocated by the party, and to lay aside selfishness everywhere, and by so doin-j they can have Indiana remain as safely In the Republican column an any of her sister States. "I congratulate the two United States senators, as well as Governor Mount, for the magnificent campaign they have made. and I congratulate all the men who have gone about and assisted so earnestly from the hustings. Their names I cannot men- tlon, but they have all done spkndld work In the campaign. It was a noble cause and the campaign in Indiana was one of entire satisfaction to me. It grew from the time we began on the 15th of Septem- ber until we closed on the 3d of November, and there never was a more magnificent campaign than we had In Indiana on the last Saturday before the election. What a glorious prospect for the futurel Thanks giving day Is approaching, when we can all sit down and praise Him who guards the sparrow's fall for having saved us once more and put. us on the high road to na- tlonal honor and honesty." RETURNS ALL ONE WAY. The Republican Managers Were Na- turallr Well IMeaaed. As early as 8 o'clock last night there was no longer doubt In tne minds of the most ments at state Republican headquarters began ticking off glad tidings from other States, and by 8 o'clock Chairman Ilernly s face was wreathed in smiles. He sat at his desk studying the bulletins after they had been by Eugene Bundy, of the executive committee. a crowd of gentlemen were gathered in Chairman Hernly's private room listening to the dispatches as they came in. At :30 nVlnrl- Phalrmnn Hfrn1v reneated the statement he had made several times In the tnat hour but llttle had becn heard from with good news, and the chairman felt that k WQM only a qiJegtlon of an nour 0r tWo before his feelings would be fully borno out by reliable reports. COUNTY Bif 6.000. At 8 o'clock last night Chairman Akin, of the county Republican committee, declared that Marion county would be Republican by from 7,000 to 8,000. At that hour Mr. Akin had no information at hand as to how the different candidates on the county ticket fared. The first returns Mr. Akin received were from the First and Second wards. One of these reports showed that the sixteenth precinct of the First ward had been carried by the Republicans with a gain of eight over the last poll. The fourth precinct of the Second ward also went Republican, giving a gain of twenty over the last poll. By a little after 8 o clock the returns be gan to be received rapidly at the press bureau in Monument place. One of the first to be received at the bureau was from the fourth precinct of the Third ward, which gave Mckinley 174 and Bryan 64; Durbln 166 and Kern 73. An omcial report from the first precinct, Perry township showed a net gain for McKinley eleven votes, giving McKinley 163 and Bryan 97. In Precinct 13, Fourth ward, the Repub lican and Democratic presidential candi dates ran neck and neck. McKlnley's vote was 65 and Bryan s 69. As an indication of how McKinley distanced his opponent In some wards In this city one precinct re Dorted 183 votes for him and 23 fox Bryan. Joint Bureau Bulletin No. 5 Precinct 5.

The air about Democratic State head quarters was dense with gloom as early as 7 o'clock last night. With long-drawn, solemn faces Green Smith, Myron D. King. Dr. Van Vorhls and Leon Bailey sat in a semi-circle facing Chairman Martin much as a band of mourners in front of tho coffin at a funeral listening to Mr. Martin read the discouraging news from the coun try at large. Returns began coming in from New York and other Eastern States before the polls in Indiana closed, and in this way the re- 6Uit rrom outside began to be apparent before the Indiana vote had scarcely com menced to be counted. The leaders at Democratic State headquarters locked and barred themselves in an inner room very eany in tne evening, ana it was almost an J?0'?"" ? Jfcti? ?L?2 into the sanctum a young man, who, after much parley lng, consented to knock at the sacred Dor tal. After a wait of several minutes the door slowly opened to a very narrow width and a woman of stern countenance looked frownlngly upon the venturesome reporter. "Will you please ask Chairman Martin if he will grant the Journal an audience?" was asked of the young woman. "Yes, was the reply, uttered as if the concession gave pain. In a few more minutes tho Joyful Information was brought that Mr. Martin would see the reporter a moment, "Have you any statement to make or estN mate to give out?" Mr. Martin was asked "We have not heard from a single In diana precinct," replied Mr. Mnrtin, "and so there is absolutely nothing to give out." "What of the general result?" was the are so mixed yet that we can't tell a thing about the result in the county." Mr. Bell said substantially the same thing. Some of the lesser lights were declaring loudly and boastfully, "We have done the Repub licans up," but when pressed for figures to substantiate their assertions evaded the question. A bulletin posted down town at 7:15 represented Mr. Taggart as saying. 'We have carried the county. Don't let them count us out," but the statement was, of course, regarded by Judicial minds as a mere begging of the question. PREDICTED OVER 40,OOO. Senator Beverldge Vindicated as a Political Prophet. Senator Albert J. Beveridge spent a part of yesterday evening at Republican State committee headquarters, and with others listened to the reading of returns. He was mUrh ratified over the srreat virtnrv rf thA Republican national ticket and was espe cially elated with the prospects for a big Republican majority in Indiana. At an early hour Senator Beveridge re- Iterated the statement he made two weeks ago that Indiana would give a Republican majority of 40,000. For two or three weeks Senator Beveridge had Insisted that this would be the figure ln this State. The re ports received last night indicated that the benator was not far wrong ln his guess, and as a prophet he was vindicated. At midnight the senator said he thought the further returns would increase instead of diminish the net Republican gain. . MH. FAIRBANKS TALKS. Result of the Election Significant and Gratifying. One of the first things Senator Fairbanks did lart night after the result of the elec tion became certain was to send President MeKInley a congratulatory telegram. Later the senator gave out the following ex pression of opinion to the public: "The result Is magnificent and gratifying. The American people have handsomely In- dorsed the administration of President Mc Kinley, and very emphatically repudiated Bryan and Bryanism. The opposition chal- tnged the intelligence or tne pvcplc. They promulgated false Issues to conceal real h-sues which vitally concerned the welfare of the countrj'. The people were not de ceived. They have decided that the pro tective tariff and tne gold standard shall be maintained and that the policies which make for prosperity nd national honor hall be continued, and that we shall meet the obligations growing out of the war with Spain ln good faith. They have de cided that it Is a good rule to let well enough alqne. There Is no better evidence of the capacity of the people for self-gov ernment than the crushing defeat admin istered for the second time to a political adventurer. Indiana has done nobly. She has spoken forcefully in favor of sound policies and In support of a successful ad ministration. We have becn greatly ald-d by many of the best Democrats In the State. We cannot forget their potential assistance." COLUMBIA CLVD TELEGRAMS. They Were Sent to MeKInley, Ilooie reit Hanna and Heath. Lazt night John B. Cockrum, as prtsl dent of the Columbia Club, sent the follow ing telegrams: "William McKinley. President of the United StAtes, Canton, O.: "The Columbia Club of Indianapolis con gratulates you on your re-election to the high office of President of the United State. Your fellow-members of this club unite with the countrymen la their earnest belief that the country has boon saved from the greatest peril, and all are Jabllant over your great success and tne fullest vindication of your administration. JOHN U. COCKRUM." "Hon. Theodore Roosevelt, Oyster Bay, L. I., New York: "The Columbia Club Joins the patriotic citizens of the United States in extending the most earnest congratulations to you upon your election as Vice lresident. Your earnest work: ably neipea tne grand success, the greatest achievements of the most remarkable campaign in the history of American politics. JOHN B. COCKRUM." "Hon. M. A. Hanna, Cleveland. O.: "The Columbia Club of Indianapolis con gratulates you on the splendid victory for patriotism and the country's good. You deserve and will receive tho plaudits of the whole people of the country upon this great achievement. JOHN B. COCKRUM." "Hon. Perry 8. Heath, Secretary Repub lican National Committee. Auditorium Hotel. Chicago, III.: "The Columbia Club Joins the country In extending its congratulations upon the splendid victory you and your fellows have won to-day. The country is saved from the greatest disaster that has threatened it In the last forty years. Your club is proud of you. "JOHN B. COCKRUM." ELECTION OFFICERS. They Are Requested to Send Returns to Election Bureau. The Incompleteness of the returns ln this mornlng'j paper Is due to the fact that the count of the ballots was not finished until very late and the reports were not sent to the Joint press tmreau. Officers and clerks of election having these reports are requested, both by the bureau and the committees ot both par ties, to send them to the office at 22 Monu ment place at the first possible moment this morning. By complying with the request the peo ple will be able to secure full returns to-day. A SURLY LOT OF ME.. Not Much to Give Out at Democratic State Headquarters. Removal of Bryan badges became the order at Democratic State headquarters as early as 10 o'clock last night. By that time the f returns from the State began to come in pretty steadily, and the ratio of Repub lican gains Indicated a plurality of some thing like forty or fifty thousand. The prospect rendered the leaders speechless. Assistant Secretary Howard Gates said plaintively: "Well, I guess we carried Texas, anyway." John Rochford, who knows the meaning of defeat by previous experience, was vainly trying to hearten a few of his friends In the reception room Just outside Chairman Martin's securely barred den. Rochford made the wild dec laration that Bryan would be run again, to which one of the "discouraged" responded: "I guess he will have to be run, for he won't have the strength to run himself." One lone Democrat vowed he would con tinue to wear his portrait of Bryan, "for." said he, "it is. the emblem of liberty." Chairman Martin made an early start last night at his old tactics of refusing to allow newspaper men access to the re turns as they were coming into his room by leased wire. At 9 o'clock he began to deny even a glimpse of his person to re porters. This surliness was said to have been caused by a report sent to New York from Democratic State headquarters by a newspaper man, to the effect that Mr. Martin nad conceded Indiana by 13,000. The chairman grew very wroth when he learned how he had been "betrayed." II declared that he had made no auch state ment. Judging by Mr. Martin's actions In ether regards, it Is not likely that he did make any concession to a newspaper man. It is said that one reporter who managed to get Into he room was removed wltl some llttle show of force. The indications at 10 o'clock were that the headquarter would not be kept open much longer, and that Mr. Bryan's worshipers in this vlcio ltyxwould follow the example set by him many hours previously of going to bed and not setlng anybody. TI3IE OF TAKING OFFICE. Some Former Irregularities la ihm State and County. With the election over. Interest Is being taken ln the question of the time when the newly elected candidates to office will take their seats. Investigation has brought to light the curious fact that not all the men who Were chosen to fill State offices yes terday will begin to draw their salaries at the same time. The irregularity Is pre sumed to have come about through death, resignation or some such cause ln past years. The secretary of state's term of office expires Jan. 1G, 1001, while the auditor holds on until the 25th of that month. State Treasurer Levy will succeed himself Feb. 10, while Superintendent of Public Instruc tion Frank L. Jones must wait until the 15th of March. Attorney General Tayloo will walk out of his office and light back again on the 10th of this month. The term or Statistician Conner ends as soon as the result of the election becomes officially promulgated. The Judges of the Supreme Court hold office until the 1st of January. The Governor and lieutenant governor are Inaugurated on the Monday following tne convening of the Lg!aturc, whlrh is on the first Thursday after the flrht Mon day ln January. The vote for these twj offices is required by law to be formally canvassed by the Legislature before" the men elected are allowed to take office. There is also some irregularity in the time of commencement of the terms of county officers. The s her Iff takes office as soon as he Is elected, the treasurer on Jan. 1 and the surveyor on the first Mon day after election. EDITOR 3IORSS TALKED. He Gnve V the Country at lOtO . Tasitart and Bailey Also. The only local Democrat of prominence who was at all willing to d!scu?s the result of the election last night was Samuel K. Morss, proprietor of tho SentlneL Th owner of the local organ of Democracy, when found, at 10:30 last night, was buall engaged ln consuming a luncheon that presented a tempting appearance. When asked for an expression. Mr. Morss emllcd pleasantly, at the same time making deprecating gesture with his l-ft hand, right being occupied with holding a duii; demi-tasse, and said: "At 10:30 o'clock looks very much as though Mr. McjO; will pull through. Mr. Dunn here ru and 1 agree wlin bin, that It Is ccrtxl
