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.

ABOUT PEOPLE AND THINGS.
W. T. 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.

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 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.

HIS WAY TO WASHINGTON.

IN RESPONSE TO THE ENTHUSIASTIC
CHEERS OF THE PEOPLE.
Salute of Twenty-One Guns Fired by

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."
From President McKinley: "I heartily
appreciate your kind expressions and con
gratulate you upon concluding In health
one of the most memorable campaigns in
our political history."
The presidential party left at 3:15 p. m.
for Washington, going over the Pennsyl
vania road by the regular train due in
Washington at 7:44 a. m. Thursday. The
two private cars Olympia and Mercutlo
will be attached to the train for the ac
commodation of the party. The President
and Mrs. McKinley drove to the train in
an open carriage and were greeted with
cheers as they stopped from the carriage
to the train. Mrs. McKinley carried a great
bouquet of pink carnations and smiled
graciously to the crowd in response to the
continuous huzzas. The President ac
knowledged the salutations with a sweep
of his hat as the train pulled out for the
national capital.
On arriving at Washington to-morrow
morning the President will give early at
tention to the completion of his message to
Congress. He has been giving some atten
tion to it here, sketching it in the rough,
so that the essential features are well
nigh completed, but there remains to give
It exact form. Four years ago the election
was Immediately followed by much Cabinet
comment. But there Is an entire absence
of such comment now, as It appears to be
accepted that the present Cabinet will re
main at least until the new administration
begins, and there is no intimation of a
change even then. The President's inti
mates say he is hardly less gratified over
the election of a Congress which will be In
political sympathy with him than he Is of
the success of the presidential ticket.
A CONTINUOUJ OVATION.

ton En Route to Washington.
PITTSBURG. Nov. 7.-PresIdent McKin

workers men and women to those who

President appeared at each stop, shaking
hands from the rear platform, and making
short speeches at the most Important
towns. Mrs. McKinley has received her
share of the popular tribute, men and
women struggling to present her with
flowers. Patriotism, the flag and the vol
unteers' uniform have figured everywhere.
The start from Canton was made at 1:33
p. m amid the boom of cannon, the screech
of steam whistles, and the well wishes of
the President's townspeople. Mr. and Mrs.
McKinley occupied a private car at tho
rear of the train. The car was decorated
with yellow chrysanthemums, bound in
ribbons of red. white and blue. An inter
esting Incident occurred soon after tho
train left Canton. Many of those on the
regular coaches were anxious to greet tho
President, and he consented to see a dele
gation from Alliance, which U In his own
