C RU?s House. Ebbltt House and YVlllard's Hotel. Ballots, not baseball bats, won the elec tion. - Yes, Mr. Bryan, the full dinner pail did count for something after all. The recent elections were not encourag ing to the Democratic hope of winning any beats In the United States Senate. All things considered, no other State did as well as Indiana, and for this year, at least, it Is the banner Republican State. The peuple of this congressional district are to be congratulated on the triumphant re-election of Representative Overstreet. Among other things demonstrated by the recent election Is that the American people prefer a policy of performances to one of promises. "The returns from Indiana up to mid night were not very encouraging," says the Sentinel. Oh, yes they were. Ask any Republican. Now, the affairs of the public having been properly attended to, everybody can look after his individual concerns vlth a clear conscisjee. The Sentinel says the result of the elec tion was "a rebuke to the McKinley admin istration." Some people construe it as a re buke? to .Bryanlsm. The result of the election being known, manufacturers and others who have been planning extensions of business or new en terprises will go ahead with confidence. Undoubtedly the hypocritical harping on Imperialism and the cowardly abuse of the army drove thousands o young Amer leans, first voters, to vote for McKinley. Not one of the least causes of gratifica tion which the great victory furnishes is the defeat of Senator Fettlgrew, of South Dakota. lie was the best friend of Aguin aldo in Congress. Complaints regarding the slowness of vot ing and the inconvenient arrangements in tne booths were numerous and well found ed. Efforts should be made to bring about a practical reform in both respects. Having fought a good fight and won, let us Daw change the subject and talk of something else than politics. Political editors as well as the public may grow tired after a four months campaign. Republicans must net forget that the ex cellence of the state legislation and the state administration were potent factors In the campaign in Indiana. To hold In diana that excellence must be maintained. While Mr. McKinley's town, Canton, O., save him a largely Increased majority over 1S06, Lincoln. Neb., where Mr. Bryan lives, went against him by about 4,000. There is something in being known by one's neigh bors. Massachusetts Republicans did not do their duty on Tuesday as did those In other States. The worst thing about their failure Is that, outside of Massachusetts, the fall ing off Is attributed to the influence of the anti-imperialists. It used to be said that Indiana was nat urally Democratic The large Republican majorities In the last four elections 14,773 In 13.1S1 In 17,51$ In 1S3S, and more than 10,000 la 1300 come pretty near provin that It U naturally Republican. In 1SS3 when President Harrison was elected, a violent opponent declared that he would not live under his rule, but would move to Terre Haute. These excel lent persons whose nightmare is empire can go to Mexico. They can be spared. There are some things which the Ameri can people should not forget now that the election is over, one of which Is the sland er which have been printed by Bryan or- rans aDd uttered by Bryan stumpers against the American soldier In the far away Philippines. An Indiana correspondent of a Boston paper describes Mr. John W. Kern, the gen tlernan who "also ran," as the George Fred Williams of Indiana. Fortunately for Mr. Kern, this did not become generally known i a A m eise nis vote wouia nave been even less than the unhappy total. One effect of Mr. Bryan's meteoric career has been to make a break In the solid South and create an almost solid North. In 1S3 the Republicans carried Delaware, Maryland, West Virginia and Kentucky. and this year they have carried the first three and perhaps the last, thus chipplnj off three or four States from the traditiona solid South. The recent election has re sulted In giving a Republican Governor and State officers to every Northern State ex cept the free sliver, rotten borough States' of Colorado, Montana, Nevada, and possi bly Bryan's own State, Nebraska. Those States do very well to point a moral and serve as an object lesson in bad politics. All the rest of the Northern States, twenty- four !n number, are solid against Bryan Ism, not only In the Electoral College, but In their State governments. tiii: SOUND-MONEY DEMOCRATS. A prominent Republican of this city who made speeches during the campaign said yesterday, in the presence of another Re publican and a pronounced Gold Democrat, I take off my hat to the Gold Democrats." "So do I," said the other Republican. No doubt many have had the same feeling. It would be ungenerous and unpatriotic for Republicans to fail to recognize the im portant aid they have received in moral support and In votes from the sound-money Democrats, both In 1SS6 and In the election Just held. It is scarcely too much to say that the election of Mr. McKinley in 1SD6 was due to their efforts. He received the electoral votes of several States by ma jorities so email that they might have been turned for Bryan had the sound-money Democrats voted for him. In 1S96 Palmer and Buckner received 134,643 votes, and probably more than twice that number of sound-money Democrats either voted for McKinley or did not vote at all. Colonel A. K. McClure, in his work entitled "Our Presidents and How We .Make Them," says: "While the Democrats hati a sound money national ticket with such acceptable candidates as Palmer and Buckner, a very small proportion of the sound-money Dem ocratic vote of the country was cast for that ticket. McKinley certainly received 500,000 Democratis votes cast for him di rectly to assure the defeat of Bryan." This is the estimate of a veteran observer In politics. How near correct it is cannot be known, but it Is certain that - the sound- money Democrats contributed very ma terially to McKinley's first election. Nearly as many voted for him in the recent elec tion as did four years ago, and many more did not vote at all. Perhaps they did not turn the scale for him in any State, but they contributed materially to his popular majorities and to the overwhelming defeat of Bryan. Therefore the Journal takes off Its hat to the sound-money Democrats. No set of men ever gave higher proof of Inde pendence and patriotism in politics or a better example of good citizenship In voting than they have done in both of the last two presidential elections. Their course constitutes a new departure In American politics, and should become historic as fur nishing an example to be Imitated by men of all parties under similar circumstances. What the future may have In store for them politically the Journal does not know. but they are entitled to all the satisfaction and all the praise that belongs to the ex ercise of a high degree of independence and to having contributed materially to achiev ing a great victory for national honor and for right principles and good government. GREATER THAN A PARTY TRIUMPH. It would be unjust to claim the great tri umph of Tuesday as a purely Republican victoryunjust alike to Republicans and tens of thousands of Independents and Gold Democrats who voted together tinder the conviction that the re-election of Mc Kinley was essential to the welfare of the country. Had some Democrat with a con servative record like Mr. Cleveland been the Democratic candidate, Mr. McKinley would not have received the unprecedented vote he did throughout the country where voting is practiced. Mr. Bryan made him self the Issue, and the more he spoke the more thoughtful men realized the danger which his election involved and actively took sides against him. Thousands of men who never expected to take an active part in politics found themselves earnestly en gaged in the campaign against Mr. Bryan. These thousands of men were Influenced by the appalling unfitness of Bryan for Pres ident. In his constant appeals to class prejudice they saw grave danger, and a3 private citizens Intent on the public wel fare they voted for McKinley because he could be trusted. Republicans who have been elected to Congress and other places of trust and honor by the assistance of such voters should endeavor to win the confidence of this large class of independent voter3 by conservative legislation and general ac tion. Even with the possible reorganiza tion of the Democratic party, prudent ac tion will insure the support of the ele ment which has given the Republican party such an advantage. In State and local ad ministration and legislation it will be wise to bear this fact In mind. Instead of making Republicans in official position reckless, this signal triumph should cause them to feel the greater responsibility which It has brought and inspire them with a purpose to meet the expectation of the country. A NEW KIXD OF INSURANCE. In an age remarkable for the number and variety of organizations to insure their members against loss or accident from al most every concclvablo source there is none more singular than one which has been formed by a number of the leading manufacturers In Austria. According to the United States consul at Trieste it is the object of the association to indemnify Its several members for all losses sustained by them from unjust strikes which may break out in their respective establish ments. Each member is to pay a weekly premium equal to from 3 to 4 per cent, of the amount of his pay roll. When a strike occurs a committee- will be appointed to investigate all the circumstances, and if the cause of the strikers be found Just no Indemnity shall be paid. Nothing of the kind has ever been attempted In this coun try, and it Is not the first time that Euro pean countries have led the United States in progressive social movements calculated to benefit capital or labor, or both. Co operation, profit-sharing department stores, the Tensioning of aged employes are among the ideas we have borrowed from European countries, where they are all more advanced than they are yet In the United States. The new organization now referred to seems to have the double merit of Indemnifying its members against finan cial or pecuniary loss from unjust strikes, and also of ascertaining by Investigation whether the strike Is Just or not and thus establishing a basis for arbitration. The tendency of such an organization would seem to be to prevent hasty oir causeless strikes by employes, and also to Induct Just and fair treatment by employers, for the latter will know that If a strike Is found to be for good cause they will get no Indemnity, while employes will know that if a strike Is found to be without good cause the employer will have the support and aid of the insurance association, thus materially lessening, if not wholly destroy ing, their chance of success. It is another instance of the modern tendency of both capital ar.d labor to organize for the pro tection and promotion of their respective Interests, and as long as such organiza tions are confined to legitimate purposes they are commendable. THE GROWING TRIUMPH. Twenty-four hours have added to the magnitude of Tuesday's victory. President McKinley is sure of 254 electoral votes, and has a good chance for those of Nebraska and Idaho, which would give him eleven more. Kentucky will probably go to the Democrats, because the result Is a mere matter of counting by Democratic officials under the Goebel law. But 284 electoral votes are thirteen more than Mr. McKinley received four years ngo. It was stated yesterday that Mr. McKinley's majority of the popular vote would be less than in 1SS6. Present indications are that the McKinley plurality this year will be as large as it was four years ago. If not larger. He has lost in New England, New York, New Jersey and Illinois, but In the other States which he carried in the plural ities of 1900 are larger. On the other hand, Mr. Bryan has lest his large pluralities in the mining States. He has lost 100,000 In Colorado, 50,0 In Utah and smaller plu ralities In the other new States. The Republicans also have a good work ing majority in the next House in spite of the fact that the South is solidly Demo cratic. The latest figures give 204 Repub licans In a total of 257 members. The Re publican side of the Senate will be strength ened by the gain of one or two members unless the Nebraska Legislature shall have been carried by the Fuslonists. In that event Mr. Bryan may get into the Senate and thus renew his hold upon the Demo cratic party. Such are the leading features of the great victory as they present themselves at this writing. But its effect upon the future of the country the most of us may never fully comprehend. Not the least of the In fluence growing out of the victory is the confidence it inspires in the good sense and patriotism of the American people. The re sult involves another reminder that when a proposition involving danger to the country is presented to the people they so fully understand it that they silently re ject it. It would be Invidious to single out for praise by name committees, individuals or organizations that have contributed to the victory in this State, and particularly In Marion county. From the State committee to the smallest organization to get out votes, all have done their duty and did It well. The officers of the State committee perfected an organization which put them In touch with the most minute precinct committee. It was an arduous task of which few have any conception. In the county the party organization labored zealously and patiently to make if possible to bring out the Republican vote and to In crease it. The Lincoln League and all the local clubs cid valiant service. The march ing clubs and organizations, Rough Riders, factory organizations and the like empha sized the opposition to Mr. Bryan early in the campaign. Beyond the influence of organizations was the effort of individuals all over the State a silent factor in a great campaign which may be lost . sight of. There is glory enough for all in a victory the magnitude and far-reaching conse quences of which few of us can scarcely realize to-day. One of the Christian Advocates hay made a study of reports from fifty-six of the Methodist Episcopal conferences of this year, which thows that, in all, forty-four sixth-year ministerial appentmentr, were made. The last general conference of the church removed the time limit, which had for a considerable period letn five years previous to that three years, and consid erable interest has been manifested in the workings of the new plan. It was argued by some that under the old sys tern the average duration of the Method 1st pastorate was equal to the average in any other evangelical denomination, and that the removal of the thnc limit would really make no difference. The clspo sltlon to cail for Jx-year appolntmenta will, however, change this average. Forty four of this class is a small prcportlon among so many, f course, but it was to be expected that the new system would go into operation slowly, and, considering how great an innovation the extended term is in that church, the number mentioned is significant as a beginning. Rev. Mr. Talmage recently returned from Europe with the news that the President of the United States is now prayed for right after the Queen. In all the English church establishment. This leads the Springfield Republican to inquire quer ulously whether or not a revision of the prayer-book would take place in case Bry an were elected. Probably not, unless it might be that the prayer would follow that asking preservation from special calami ties. Tho British ecclesiastics should un dcrstand that Bryan as President would need more than the ordinary amount of praying for. However, the possibility sug gested is now of the past. It is really cruel to repeat on the day after tvfcat Democrats said before election. Lut the Journal cannot refrain from quot ing from the preposterous George Fred Williams. George Fred went back to Bos ton from his campaign in Indiana and told tho public that this State was high and dry for Bryan. "There has never been the least doubt about Indiana," continued George confidently; "I Know that throughout the country there is an overwhelming sweep toward Bryan. I have never known a cam paign in which so many conversions to Democracy have been reported Immediately after meetings." And what doe3 George Fred know now, poor thing? The action of Governor Mount In appoint ing Mr. Parks Martin tax commissioner to succeed Judge Busklrk, resigned, will com mend Itself to those who believe In carry ing out tha theory of nonpartisanshlp In the boards as contemplated by the law. The Journal believes that Democrats ap pointed to such positions by Republican executives should be men of recognized standing In the Democratic party. Mr. Martin has been chairman of the Demo cratlc state committee four years. He would not have been called to that position had he not possessed "more than ordinary capacity for affairs. It must be exceedlnerlr ratifying to fair- minded men that the malignant attacks made upon the character of President Mc Kinley by a cantankerous lot of men who call themselves Prohibitionists have failed. The vJndtctiveness which characterized tne speeches of most of that element did more to defeat their rurnosc than anything eise. The people of this country know that Wil liam McKinley Is a man of blameless life. and they resent his being stigmatized as a wine-bibber. By far the larger number of colored voters went to the polls Tuesday and voted as good cltl-sens should. The conduct of those who fell under the Influence of the Taggartites and did not vote was bitterly denounced by respectable young colored men who appreciate the privileges of cit izenship. The Journal Is in duty bound to say. In Justice to such men, that a great injustice Is done them In any sweeping de nunciation of colored men as voters. On Tuesday afternoon a dispatch was re ceived about 2 o'clock declaring that a Massachusetts town with about as many votes as a precinct had given a Bryan gain of 07 per cent., or words to that effect. Thereupon some of the workers took copies of the dispatch to the voting places, and ethers were emboldened to accept some minor bets, mistaking a Massachusetts drop for a tidal wave. Those who predicted that Mr. Kern, the Democratic candidate for Governor, would run thousands ahead of Colonel Durbin will learn from the returns that they are wrong. Mr. Kern and his friends made a special effort to Increase his vote, while tho single purpose of Colonel Durbin's three months' canvass was to help the whole ticket. The outrage of the Taggart regime In arresting W. II. Evans Sunday night, as If he were a fugitive from justice, should not be forgotten because the election Is over. The victim of such arbitrary and tyrannical action may have no remedy in Jaw, but those who are responsible for the act should not be forgotten. The naming of one of the public school buildings after Miss Catharine Merrill was a highly commendable proceeding. Few persons have exerted a stronger In tellectual influence upon the community than she, while to the memory of her beautiful character and blameless life young and old might well do honor. It is hoped by many Democrats as well as Republicans that the report that Repre sentative Lentz, of the Columbus (Ohio) district has been defeated, is true. Except the dreadful Sulzer, of New York, there has not been a greater nuisance In the House of Representatives for ' years. The erection of Eugene Saulcy to the of fice of sheriff by nearly the average of tho Republican ticket proves that it does not pay to assail a candidate with falsehood and slander, who is recognized as a cap able, honest an I deserving party man. The few men who, having once been hon ored by the Republicans, came out against the party candidates this; year should real ize of how little importance they are out side the party which made them. Henry U. Johnson is one of these men. BUBBLES IN THE AIR. . Near to Nature Heart. Should I a symbol place for luck galore I'd hang a farm-horse shoe above my door. It WtiN a. Good One.

Stead, the well-known Journalist, if of opinion that nobody so burns the candle at both ends as the American busi ness man. "He even hurries his sleep," says Mr. Stead. The most eminent of contemporary piano teachers, Leschetlzsky of Vienna, recently celebrated his seventieth birthday, but has no intention of retiring from his profes sion. A great accession of fame has come to him of late years as the teacher of Paderewskl. Harriet Hosmer's statue of "Zenobia In Chains" has been given to the Wads worth Atheneum in Hartford by Mm. Josephine M. Dodge, of New York city. Mrs. Dodge was born in Hartford, being daughter of the late Marshall Jewell. Tha statue Is a noble work, and the people of Hartford are to be congratulated, says the Springfield Republican. While Mary Anderson Navarre is lost to the general public, and loses no op portunity to speak unfavorably of the stage as a career, she is still to be seen and heard at semi-private occasions, but as a singer. She works lndefatigably at her music under the instruction of Ivor bay, the Hungarian composer, and not long ago sang at a church benefit con cert in England. Her voice is described as a contralto of a very beautiful quality. An amusing illustration of the growing demand in England for athletic clergymen was recently given by a country curqte who received notice to quit because, though unexceptionable in other respects, his vicar declared that "what this parish really needs is a good fast bowler with a break from the off." No doubt the worthy vicar perceived that no village lad could possibly reject the theology of a curate capable of winning the annual cricket match against the neighboring hamlet oy his own prowess. Carolyn King, the daughter of General Charles King, was recently accorded n great honor. Miss King finished htr course at the Sorbonne In June, and then entered for the competition in the Alliance Francalse, which meets every summer and confers its diplomas on such foreigners as can pass its very rigid examinations, after attending lectures and "cours." also sub mitting esays on several of the standard authors and dramatists. Möllere, Racine, Corneille, La Rouchcfoucald and J. J. Rouc:iau trsrt assigned Mlzs liter, and It was her essay on Corneille that was unan imously given the first place by the Judges. General Chaffee, who Is In command of the American forces In China, bears the un usual Christian names of Adna Romanza. Adna Is from the Hebrew and signifies pleasure, while Romanza is derived from the Italian, and in English is applied, in music, to a tender sentiment a tong with out words. "It would be Interesting to know," says the Philadelphia Record, "how General Chaffee's parents, who were plain farmer folk, living In prosaic cen tral Ohio, came to give their son these pe culiar names. This stern, matter-of-fact man of action would seem to have a name quite out of harmony with his character." The girls take exciting delight In the sight When in football the boys show their mane and their might; And to lionize surely they canot refrain As they gaze at their hair and "remember the mane." Judge. THE CHINESE IMBROGLIO. Minister Wu Concerned Over the Sum mary Action of Germans. WASHINGTON. Nov. 7.-MInIster Wu called at the State Department to-day and talked with Secretary Hay for half an hour about the proceedings of the foreign minis ters at Peking. The department takes the ground that while the ministers themselves are trying to get together on common ground to present a united front to the Chinese negotiations It would be highly lm- politics to make public any little dissen sions or differences. So all that can be gathered officially Is that fair progress Is making. Minister Wu was concerned at the situation at Pao-TIng-Fu, where the Germans seemed to have condemned to death certain high Chinese functionaries. This subject promises to lead to energetic remonstrance from the Chinese govern ment. Minister Wu handed to Secretary Hay tho following cablegram, dated Nov. 6, 1900, from Viceroy Chang Chih Tung, re ceived by Minister Wu on the morning of Nov. 7: "The other day I received a telegram from Chen, governor of Shen-Si, informing me that Yu Hsien had committed suicide by swallowing gold leaf, which news I wired to you. I have now received another telegram from Governor Shen, stating that he has not yet received confirmation of Yu's death, and he fears it Is not reliable. I have, however, learned that Yu Hsien left Shan-Sl, and that the Governor of Shan Sl, Hsl Llan, is taking the responsibility of suppressing all rioters. Please convey the above to the honorable secretary of state." General Fan Shot. TAKU, Nov. 7. On Oct. 30 General Rich ardson met 500 Imperial troops commanded by General Fan. Both eldes advanced for a parley, but, owing to an unfortunate mis understanding, an Indian trumpeter shot General Fan dead. The trumpeter was ar rested, and the incident was explained to the Chinese, the two forces then proceed ing on different routes. General Richard son burned two villages, the places where Messrs. Robinson and Norman, the mis sionaries, were murdered, and demanded that the city of Yang-Ching should pay 40.0C0 taels as compensation to the families of the victims. The payment was guaran teed. Three other villages were burned near Sang-Fang, Nov. 4. Wadded Coatn Cuaght Fire. LONDON, Nov. 7.-The following dis patch from Major General Lome Campbell has been received by the secretary of state for India: "At Ting-Ling the Chinese attempted to steal powder and caused an explosion. Two soldiers and three camp followers were killed and four camp followers were In jured. A large number of Chinese were killed or wounded, owing to their wadded coats catching fire." Boxers Shot by British. TAKU, Nov. 7. A British column ' under General Richardson left Pao-Tlng-Fu Oct. 28, marching in the direction of Peking. At Tung-My-Ing tho troops tried three Boxer chiefs, destroyers of a chapel and killers of native Christians. The British shot the chiefs. APPROVED BY THE QUEEN.

Grand Army Encampment Slay Be Held In Cleveland Next Year. CHICAGO. Nov. 7. The Record to-morrow will say: "Present conditions indicate that the members of the Grand Army of the Republic will not hold their next annual leunlon In Denver, the place selected at the Chicago encampment for the 1001 meeting. Unsatisfactory rate arrangements with the Western railroads are expected to turn the veterans from the Colorado capital to some city, probably Cleveland, in the Eastern Linea' territory. The matter of arranglns rate affairs for the next gathering of the veterans, which is scheduled for next August, already has been taken up In Its preliminary stage by the Western roads. The old soldiers believe the suecexs of a Denver encampment would depend very largely upen the rates granted by the lines operating in . Western territory. They think that nothing higher than a fist cent a mile could be seriously contldered. The roads heretofore always adhered to a rate of one fare plus 2 for the round trip for big meetings and at this tin: tfcsy fv- ' -"spositloa to break arrcy frc?a GIVEN GREAT OVATION PRESIDENT M'KINLEY GREETED ON HIS WAY TO WASHINGTON. Continuous Demonstration in M" Honor from the Time He Left Ills Canton Home BRIEF SPEECHES EN ROUTE IN RESPONSE TO THE ENTHUSIASTIC CHEERS OF THE PEOPLE. Salute of Twenty-One Guns Fired by . His Fellow-Townsmen on His Departure. CANTON. O.. Nov. 7.-President Mc Kinley started back to Washington this afternoon amid the booming of can non and the enthusiastic well wishes of his townsmen. He drove with Mrs. McKinley to the train, where Judge Day and many other near friends were as sembled to bid him adieu. A grand escort with band and banners had been planned but in deference to Mrs. McKinley's wishes there was an avoidance of any noisy dem onstration. But from Dueber Heights, a mile away, there was the boom, boom of twenty-one guns firing a presidential salute, and to tills was added a chorus of the city's bells and steam whistles. The presidential car was literally embowered in flowers. President McKinley was up early this morning after a few hours' respite from the excitement of last night. An army of mes sengers soon began pouring in, bringing con gratulatory messages, and by friends and neighbors gathered to extend felicitation. The President breakfasted at 8 o'clock with Mrs. McKinley and Secretory Cortel you. and then went to the library, where he ran over the morning papers and listened to the dispatches as Mr. Cortelyou picked them from the thousands received. They came from all quarters of the country and the world, many being cablegrams from ambassadors and ministers abroad. Secre tary Hay, Secretary Root, and in fact all the members of the Cabinet had been heard from. The President took early occasion to answer Governor Roosevelt's congratula tory message. Senator Hanna and many of his associates of the Union Club, of Cleveland, joined In a message expressing their satisfaction. All the dispatches breathed a spirit of personal devotion to the President and a patriotic sense of the results; Returns kept coming to the President from points left doubtful Last night. With few exceptions they showed even an Im provement in the situation over that of last night, although there was no decisive an nouncement of marked changes. The President was frequently interrupted by callers, many of them being old friends. The President invited the groups Inside and thanked them for their fervid greetings. His strong, square face maintained Its characteristic dignity and composure and yet he looked very happy. His replies avoided any reference to the personal triumph Involved. Mrs. McKinley also re ceived many women callers. She showed no signs of fatigue after the excitement of last night and she shared in the general happiness prevailing. The congratulatory exchange between the President and Vice President-elect Roose velt Is as follows: From Theodore Roosevelt, Oyster Bay, N. Y.: "I congratulate you and I con gratulate far more the Nation. I feel the most heartfelt gratitude over the result."
