NEW YORK, Nov. 7. Governor Roose
velt. altLough he did not retire until after
"midnight, was up in good season to-day
at his homo In Oyster Bay. After break
fast he looked over his mall and dispatches
of congratulation received from prominent
persons in different parts of the country.
The Governor made this statement com
menting upon the Republican victory:
"I rejoice beyond measure over the way
votes have gone. President McKinley had

problems that have been faced by any Pres
lder since Lincoln or by any President

how there could have been any material
Improvement in the way he has faced and
solved each of them, it therefore seems
to me c perfectly fair test of the way our
people are willing to back up a man who
has done such difficult and all important
work for the Nation. I think the supreme
capacity for successful self-government in
a nation is clearly shown by the struggle
through which the Nation haa just passed.
To have failed to Indors-i President Mc
Kinley would have been a calamity com
parable only to a failure to indorse Presi
dent Lincoln In IStH. All far-sighted and
patriotic Americans feel deeply thankful
for the way the American people as a
whole have shown their good sense and
absolute adherence to the cause of r.onesty
and national honor.
"Again it should be a matter of the deep
est gratification at the way those Demo
crats stood by sound money. They, having
Joined hands with their Republican
brethren, share the credit for a victory
which represents far more than any parti
can victory. In this coniest for true Amer
ican patriotism the men who believe in it
have stood together without regard to lo
cality or place of birth, without regard to
creed or race origin, without regard to oc
cupation or anything else excepting the
r.evds of American citizenship in a way
that is a splendid omen for the future, and
that starts the Nation well on the thresh
old of a new century."
Governor Roosevelt received many mes
sages of congratulation. He said he ex
pected to remain at hl3 home in Oyster
Pay for a couple of days. when he would
go to Albany to resume his official guber
natorial duties there.
Governor Roosevelt received telegrams
to-day as follows:
From Archbishop Ireland "Most cordial
congratulations on yesterday's magnificent
victory, to which your own labor and merit
contributed so largely."
From Secretary of War Root "My
hearty and affectionate congratulations'
From Senator De pew "First, my con

In reply Governor Roosevelt wired:
"Heartiest thanks for telegram. Please

my deepesr regret at not being present.
There is no body of men fn all the Repub
lican party whose Invitation I am more
anxious to honor. Am simply swamped
with my work and the great mass of tele

Then came other telegrams. From Joseph

To Senator Hanna: "My most earnest
congratulations for the verv great share

To Benjamin B. Odel!. jr.: "Hearty con
gratulations on your sweeping victory and
on the great thare you also had in winning

Governor Roosevelt added to his state

saying: "I feel it is more than any mere

Statement from Senator Hunna on the
Result of the Election.
CLEVELAND, O., Nov. 7. Senator M. A.
Hanna this evening gave tho Associated
Press the following statement on the re-
tult of yesterday's election:
"The result is more than satisfactory. It
expresses a continued confidence in the
administrate i of the party, which is cer
tainly gratifying to all Republicans and
friends of this administration. It assures
the continuance of present prosperous con
ditions. It is a triumph of the principles of
good government over the heresies of
P.ryanism, which Is the product of a com
bination of elements of irresponsibility, in
sensibility and incompetency. It strength
ens the very foundations of the govern
ment. It is a rebuke of the demagogy
of the campaign of the opposition and a
clear, cool diagnosis of a situation which
was for a time clouded by their methods
oi evasion and misrepresentation. Above
all, it gives to every American absolute
confidence in tho good judgment of the peo
ple and their readiness and ability to pro-t-ct
their own interests by deciding aright
those great questions which of necessity
come up in a government by the people.
"While in the main our predictions have
been fulfilled. I may say that in many
cases our expectations have teen exceeded.
As yot fina1 reports cannot, of coarse, be
made, but some of the States which we
considered doubtful are surely Republican,
and some which we classified as Demo
cratic are doubtful, with a possibility of
being Republican. M. A. HANNA."
Senator Hanna to-day received about 30D
telegrams of congratulation upon the elec
tion firm prominent men In all parts of the
country. Among tho telegrams received
were those from Secretary Ilihu Roct, As
sistant Secretary oi State David J. Hill.
John Wanamaker, .he Marquette Club of
Chicago. Congressman Grosvenor, H. H.
Kohlsaat, editor Chicago Times-Harald,
Postmaster Gordon of Chicago, Congress
man Joseph C. Sibley, Hon. Joseph Manley.
Secretary of State Hay, Senator Fairbanks
and Senator McMillan. All the telegrams
are congratulatory and give Mr. Hanna
credit for superb managerial ability. Sec
retary Hay's telegram read: "Congratula
tions on your splendid victory. Much of
the glory be'ungs to jou, bui all the profits
belong to the country."
Senator Hanna rturts to-morrow night
for New York to dispose of unfinished cam
paign business. lie will return home on
Monday ami remain until Dec. 1, when he
will go to Washington for the rest oi tha
winter and session of Congress.
Postmaster General Charles Emory
Smith on the Result.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 7. Postmaster Gen
eral Charles Emory Smith returned to-day
from Philadelphia, where he cast his vote.
He said to-night:
"This overwhelming result shows that the
deliberate judgment, honor and integrity of
the American people can safely be trusted.
The value of this result in its immediate
effect, and In its illustration of American
character and stability cannot be over
estimated. It Is an evidence of the strength
of American institutions. It assures the
unbroken continuance of President Mc
Kinley's policies of national honor and
greatness. We &hall keep our prosperity at
home and strengthen our prestige and in
fluence abroad. The administration with a
Republican Congress now can deliberately
carry forward the policies which have been
inaugurated to a successful completion.
"The enormous advantages for the coun
try in a common sense, and in the sense of
national character and glory are beyond
calculation. The events of the past two
years have marked a new epoch in our na
tional development and the result of the
election shows that the people fully ap
preciate what Is involved and mean that
this new era shall not be Interrupted. The
popular victory crushes the free silver
heresy and assures perfect stability in the
maintenance of the gold standard.
"It also pricks the bubble" of so-called im
perialism nnd shows that this hollow cry
had no material weight with the people."

SIlence Is Golden.
LINCOLN, Neb., Nov. 7. With the ex
ception of a short drive in the afternoon
William J. Bryan remained in his study
during the day, rising late this morning and
retiring early to-night. He said this even
ing he had no statement of any kind to
make at present. Mr. Bryan received hun
dreds of telegrams during the day and
evening from personal and political friends,
but their nature was not disclosed. It Is
Mr. Bryan's intention to rema.n in Lin
coln, at least until he is thoroughly rested.
To newspaper correspondents he said he
must ask to be excused from outlining his
future plans.
Letter from Senator Plait.
NEW YORK, Nov. 7. A complimentary
dinner was given to B. B. Odell, jr., at the
Republican Club to-night. Senator Chaun
cey Depew. president of the club, presided.
He read a letter from Senator Piatt in
which the latter said: "It :s unpleasant to
say that I am not ccpabie of enduring the
excitement of such a victory as we havo
just enjoyeJ. but I must confess that I am
not equal t. this emtrgency, and you will
have to excuse me from attending this
glorification to-nigat over such a victory.
J am ready to do all that can bo expected
of me at such a time, but there Is a limit
to human endurance, and urder such cir
cumstances 1 can only extend congratula
tion, in wh'ch you ond all others in at
tendance join."
The Censn Revelations a Spur to the
Workers Therein.
With over 7,0ü0,0i people officially an
nounced as dwellers within the United
States, life Insurance men are understood
to be girding themselves for renewed ef
fort. The eirnest field workers have not
been slow in figuring that out of this great
number there must be a largo showing of
healthy risks that have net yet been coaxed'
Inside the life insurance fold, as well a a
fine lot of men already insured who a;s
likely to want more.
With the presidential campaign well out
of the way, and the knowledga that the
United States now contains about as many
people as two such nations, for Instance, as
France and Austria, combined, half as
many again a? Germany, and more than
any other one civilized country outside of
Russia, it will go hard if the energetic Ufa
insurance men are not heard of to even
greater effect than heretofore. They have
the best companies in the world to work
for and the best-Informed people In ex
istence to work among, and there Is no
reason wny tne bie?smg3 of life insurance
should not bo accepted In steadily increas
ing appreciation as fast as the country lt

McKinley Success More Conducive
to Interests of Civilisation than
Bryan's Would Have Been.
Americans Conjrrntulated on the De
feat of Ilrynnlsm Editor of Paris
Le Temps Not Very Happy. '
BERLIN, Nov. 7. German government
circles are all delighted at President Mc
Kinley' re-election. The United States em
bassy to-day received a number or expres
sions of that kind. Generally speaking, the
German public is taking much greater In
terest in the American election than here
tofore. Everybody is discussing the results.
Dr. Von Holleben, the German ambassador
to the United States, who is now In this
city, said to" the correspondent of the As
sociated Press about the result: "We all
rejoice over It."
Dr. Barth, the Freisinnige leader, said:
"I regard Mr. McKInley's election, all
things considered, as the best result, al
though I cannot indorse hi3 Imperialistic
tendencies. Yet I regard his election as
more conducive to the interest of general
civilization when compared with the re
sult which Mr. Bryan's election would have
brought. For the economic Interests of
both the United States and Germany the
present result Is also more "satisfactory."
The Tageblatt says: "The Germans greet
McKInley's election above all as a victory
for pound currency over revolutionary
monetär: experiments which would have
been calculated to most severely shake the
basi3 of the entire world's commerce. Any
how, Germany's policy is to nurse close
and loyal relations with the head of a coun
try that Is connected with us by so many
economic and national ties as is the United
States. For that reason, too, the Emperor
has repeatedly made approaches to Presi
dent McKinley, and the latter has, especial
ly recently, responded cordially. There are
In no part of the world serious differences
between the United States and Germany.
In China both powers marched in the lines
after Mr. McKInley's first feeling of dis
trust regarding Germany's alleged terri
torial schemes subsided.' We hope that
during his forthcoming administration all
political questions will be solved i et ween
the two countries In the same spirit ot
fairness and mutual confidence. Above all
we hope that the question of a commercial
treaty will be solved."
The Vossischo Zeitung says: "Germany
can only rejoice at the further strengthen
ing and solidification of the economic con
ditions in the United States. No state can
escape the Inconvenience of having com
petitors in. the world's markets. That
must hi reckoned with and we must put
forth all our -strength in peaceful competi
tion. But not only tor North American in
dustrial interests is Mr. McKInley's re-elec-llon
of great Importance, but also for tho
entire commerce of the world, -which Is
vitally interested in a secure jrold currency
in the United States. For these and a
number of other reasons tho result of the
election may be considered as the smaller
me of two evils."
The Pest says: "The result is greeted
with satisfaction and sympathy in Ger
many, for the re-elected President has won
the confidence of our government and our
diplomacy during his . term by constant ef
forts to maintain good relations between
Germany and the United States. In the
midst of popular passion the President pre
served a cool head and turned aside rude
hands which tried to force him Into an
anti-German policy. Mr. McKInley's vic
tory means a continuance of the present
pleasant relations between Germany and
the United States, and we hope that tariff
negotiations between them will also have
at least as good a mutual result."
The Neueste Naehrichten says: "From a
German standpoint Mr. McKInley's re
election gives no occasion for regret. Of
course, there have been differences between
the two states during the past few years.
But. when we look back to-day upon their
settlement, the conclusion arrived at is that
Mr. McKinley did not stand in the way of
a settlement. The controversy over the
American life Insurance companies was
amicably settled last summer, and Ger
many's grievances in tariff matters were
satisfactorily disposed of. The Washing
ton government during the Spanish-American
war observed a thoroughly correct at
titude, in pleasant contrast with the public
agitation "which threatened a far-reaching
estrangement. The United States' position
in the Samoan question was pronouncedly
favorable to Germany and aided a solution
favorable to Germany."
The National Zeitung says: "Mr. Mc
KInley's victory can only be received by us
with satisfaction, especially from the
standpoint of the excellent personal rela
tions between the President and the Em
peror which have repeatedly found expres
sion from both sides, and which have also
been shown by the friendly settlement of
some of the important questions discussed
between them during the past few years.
From the standpoint of international mon
etary relations the results of the election
calls forth the same satisfaction."
The Kreuz Zeitung says: "The policy of
imperialism has received a new Impulse
through Mr. McKInley's election, namely,
the sanction of the American people. We
assume that the government which seeks
to place Arnerica in the forefront of nations
and plant the stars and stripes on the
shores of all the seas will gain fresh
strength. Regarding the relations with
Europe, Mr. McKInley's election awakens
less confidence than Mr. Bryan's would.
When Mr. White describes Mr. McKinley
to us as friendly to Germany, the thought
occurs to us: 'I hear the message, but faith
fails me.' "
The Boersen Zeitung says: "Abroad Mr.
McKInley's election will be received with
satisfaction, for the demagogical behavior
of the Democrats everywhere was regarded
as a dangerous proceeding and shows that
the Republican triumph was the smaller of
two evils. We hope that the United States,
after leaving of its own accord the isolation
which was self-imposed and coming into
constant and permanent contact with the
European powers will become convinced
that the system of studied disregard which
it has hitherto pursued cannot longer be
The Boersen Courier says: "We have
learned to count with Mr. McKinley and
his policy, and as regards the relations be
tween Germany and the United States,
they lx:;ve become during the past year
very good, and even cordial, after the
series of ' misunderstandings which had
arisen over there had been dispelled by
the frank and loyal methods of German
diplomacy. There are no differences be
tween Berlin and Washington anent for
eign questions, and regarding economic
differences they will doubtless be satisfac
torllv adjusted by mutual concessions."
The Deutsche Tages Zeitung, which Is
the main Agrarian organ, says: "We have
from the Ilrst expressed the opinion that
the party which would win was the party
wnich had the most dollars, and that this
party was the Republican and gold bugs
was an undoiibted fact. The whol3 Ameri
can elect lor. couli be greatly simplified by
each party making a show-aown of the
number oi dollars meant to be expended
upon the election. This would show the
number of electors. But then the Amer
icans like an election campaign, as it is
exciting Port. For politics at large the
election rasult this time is of no conse
quence." The Tätliche - Rundschau says: "Un
doubtedly for America an era of world
power politics of the most Intense descrip
tion begin!.-and. Judging from the sample
there alreudy seen, this will not be a factor
for promoting the world's oeace. The
United Ctatea riill eott. show its trus face
In the Chinese question. We cannot say
that our confidence In Mr. McKInley's good
will toward3 Germany is very strong."
London Editors Vlevr McKInley's
Election vrlth Satisfaction.
LONDON, Nov. 8. Most of the papers in
their comments on the American election
take the line followed by the Daily News,
which says: "The swing of the pendulum
has ceased in the United States as it has
here. The Republicans are as unshakable
there as the Conservatives are in the
United Kingdom. The elections mark the
end of Bryanism and an approval of the
policy of expansion. There is no reason to
doubt Mr. Bryan's honesty. No man with
a bad private character could face the
unexampled publicity of a presidential elec
tion. He is straightforward and sincere,
but he is the victim of a hopeless infatua
tion, and practical men felt no confidence
in him. The adhesion of Tammany Hall is
not Mr. Bryan's fault, but his misfortune."
The Dally Telegraph observes: "America
has refused to strike the stars and stripes
in the Pacific. She accepts and indorses
the expansionist policy, which has nothing
in common with artificial aggression, but
which is, on the contrary, the sign and in
dex of her vitality and of her coming of
age as a great power. She has chosen .to
go forward, and whether the fact Is wel
comed or disliked, when America chooses
to go forward she must go forward. The
result of the election is Important for Great
Britain. It suggests co-operation of the
two grer.t Anglo-Saxon powers in the far
East. This co-operation can hardly fall to
become more vigorous and definite. With
the exit of Mr. Bryan and free silver Amer
ican competition will be more efficiently
equfpped for progress in external markets
than ever before. We should say that the
most decided result of the elections will be
a vigorous promotion of Mr. McKInley's
policy in the creation of a great mercantile
The Daily Mail remarks: "We shall be
forgiven for not shedding tears over Mr.
Bryan. Mr. McKinley has governed with
discretion through a stormy period and
brought prosperity. He has managed the
inevitable tail-twisting during the cam
paign in so gentlemanly a manner that we
have not been harmed by it. In other
respects he is not unfriendly toward Eng
land, and the force of events will ulti
mately bring the two powers together. We
must be patient on both sides."
The Times, reverting to the question this
morning, comments upon the "astonishing
and unexpected completeness of McKIn
ley's victory," and says: "All wishers may
repeat Lord Salisbury's words to the Amer
ican ambassador at the Guild Hall banquet
after the election of 1S36 and congratulate
the Americans upon 'their splendid pro
nouncement made on behalf of the prin
ciples which lie at the base of all human
society.' Mr. McKInley's success in tho
South and West show that numbers of
Democrats have sacrificed their party al
legiance. It would be gratifying if some
means could bo found to organize on a
sound basis the historic party which occu
pies so great and traditional a place in
American history."
The Westminster Gazette says: "Mr.
Bryan spoke to millions conscious of the
tyranny of money in the United States, but
he fatally handicapped himself with the
free-silver craze. His close association with
'Boss Croker a Iso blighted their hopes in
him as a cleanser of administrations."
The Pall Mall Gazette says: "The result
is most welcome from every view point.
In McKinley and Roosevelt Great Britain
has just the eort of friends we want. Not
effusive ranters who sicken everybody by
their excessive pretense of cousinly unity,
but quite benevolent neutrals. As a busi
ness nation the final defeat of unsound
money is most acceptable to us. As be
lievers In a puro. and honest administra
tion we rejoice. at-the defeat of Tammany.
As a member of the community or nations
ond peculiarly akin to the United States
Great Britain is glad to acclaim tho defeat
ot the man whose tenure of office would
have meant anarchical tendencies of all
The Globe, basing its comments on the
idea that "imperialism" was the main point
at issue, says: "Henceforth the United
States will take Its place as a world power.
To the whole world tho result of the elec
tion is of supreme importance and fraught
with momentous consequences to all na
tions. In this country it will be hailed
with Unalloyed featlsf action. We gladly
welcome tho entry of the young giant of
the wes: Into the councils of the world."
The St. James Gazette remarks: "It
would have been always unworthy of
America had the corruption and jobbery
of Tammany Hall carried the day, but
especially it would have been little short
of disastrous to the world at large if Mr.
Bryan had received the mandate to reverse
the only policy the United States can possi
bly pur&ue in Cuba and the Philippines,
which is the policy of Mr. McKinley. We
may look forward, with confidence to Mr.
McKInley's line of action in the far East
now that he feois his policy has thus far
commended itself to the sound views of his
The Daily Chronicle, whose editorial Is
In a vein similar to tnat of the Times, says:
"The thought suggests itself that if the
Democrats had be'in able to agree thy
might have found a stronger candidate
than Mr. Bryan. Peace, contentment and
booming trade were his woist opponents.
It is only human nature that Great Britain
should rejoice over the succtss of the Re
publicans, nd it Is to be hoped that the
defeat of Tammany Hall is the beginning
of a new oraer. Mr. Roosevelt, than whom
probably a greater man has not appeared
in American politics since Lincoln, Is the
one man, if there be any, who can intro
duce purity into the American political
The Morning Post says: "Mr. McK'nley
may boast that he s the elect of the who'e
people in a larger sense than any President
since the civil war. The Republican vic
tory will be memorable in the annals of
the Union."
The Standard savs: "It would be too
speculative tc say that Bryanism is deid
as a factor in American politics, but it his
received a staggering blow, and the ghost
of tho silver heresy is laid. The election
is a victory for impel ialism, but if Mr. Mc
Kinley is to keep united people at his
back he must proceed with statesmanlik3
caution, such, as he has already exhibited.
Englishmen have every reason to be satis
fied with the result "
The papers publish sketches of the career
of McKinley and Rooseve.lt, with portraits.
The Dally Chronicle reportD Consul Gen

within, and of the ultra expansionists
abroad, which nearly lost it the White
House and which has cost the country so
dear, morally and financially. In order to
appreciate the effect of the election on the
international policy more details are neces
sary." .
The Journal des Debats says: "Our coun
try has certainly no reason to fear atr ac
centuation of the Americans' world policy.
American Imperialism has never appeared
desirous to don the mask the Enslish press
persisted In offering it. It has no tendency
to become the creature of the British or

In others. America will act independently

Moreover, It is difficult to know hoTr tbs
situation will develop. An absolutely new
factor may intervene in the shape of an in
dependent President. Mr. McKinley having
opinions, and having them, they may pre
vail." The morning papers comment but briefly
upon the result of the American election.
The Gaulols dees not consider that the
re-election of Mr. McKinley signifies that
f Tvr-;c;tie tendencies predominate In the
United States. "In spite of the efforts of
Mr. Bryan," it says, "to give battle or
this ground, the policy of conquest and
expansion, it is manifest that such con
siderations played only a secondary role,
and it is permissible to think Mr. Mc
Kinley will hesitate to enter upon the
path of a militant imperialism, against
which, as he cannot fail to know, there
Is a strong current of opinion."
The Petit Parislene says: "The war in
the Philippines will be continued to the
end. As to Porto Rico and Cuba the
Washington Cabinet will adjourn as long
as possible their definite emancipation. In
short, the United States will take a more
active role in international politics."
The Rappel utters a warning note re
garding the "Imperialistic tendency of th
American government."
The Sieclc, which welcomes the re-election
of Mr. McKinley, remarks: "Mindful
of Mr. McKInley's service in 1S0C In sav
ing his country and the world from the
greatest economical crisis of the nine
teenth century. France ought to consider
herself fortunate that the United State
has not elected Mr. Bryan, because a man
who presented himself as the candidate

VIENNA. Nov. 7. The Austrian press !s
not particularly favorable towards Presi
dent McKinley, and several leading jour
nals warn him not to push Imperialism
too far.
The Neule.Frel Presse thinks that the
policy of the United States in China will
now become "more steady and energetic.
The Allgemeine Zeitung recalls Count
Goluchowski's plan of pan-European alli
ance against America, and says: "An im
perialist policy will compel the United
States to seek new markets. The end of
imperialism everywhere is war. In the
present case it Is war against the whole
LONDON. Nov. fc The Vienna corre
spond nt of the Times, after recalling vari
ous incident that have caused friction,
eays: "It is scarcely too much to say that
the United States Is ihe power that enjoys
the least popularity here, not only among
politicians, who are unabl to forget the
Spanish-American war, but also arnon
commercial people, who are unable to for
give American protectionist measures.
There Is universal indifference to elections
in the United States, and this would n..t
have been affected . even by Mr. Bryan s
success. Tho Austrlans are not yet recon
ciled to the idea thai they must treat the
United Stated as a great power."
Much Interest in Mexico.
MEXICO CITY, Mex., Nov. 7. There was
great Interest manifested in the American
presidential election here in political and
commercial circles to-day. The Mexican
Herald says: "Tho United States has re
fused to listen to the exponents of the Idea
of restriction of the national domain to the
new world; it will hold what it has taken
and its voice will be heard abroad in pol
icies of civilization. Thus the election
marks a new era In not only American af
fairs, but in the wider works of the world."
General Clayton, the American ambassa
dor to Mexico, has telegraphed his con
gratulations to President McKinley.

brokers, members of the Stock. Produce.
Maritime and Cotton exchanges, paraded
this afternoon In celebration of McKInley's

the Sixty-ninth Regiment Band was sta
tioned." A line was formed, and, headed by
a platoon of police and brokers, marched
into the exchange. They marched around
the floor, waving banners and flags and
cheering for McKinley and Roosevelt. An
immense American flag suspended as the
brokers appeared was the signal for a
cheer that was taken up by the crowded
galleries and corridors. The playing of the
"Star-spangled Banner" by the band was
another signal for prolonged cheers. Ladles
in the gallery waved handkerchiefs, and
the cheers drowned the music. After twice
marching around the floor Marshal Braln
ard led the long column out of the ex
change, and the march was begun down
Beaver street. The paraders were greeted
with cheers from all the buildings along
the line of march and from the crowds that
thronged the sidewalks. When the march
ers passed the Cotton Exchange the cotton
brokers rushed out, giving cheer after
cheer, and then formed in line arter the
produce brokers. The march was continued
into Wall street, where from the. windows
in every building cheers were given that
lasted until the column turned into Bread
street. When opposite the custom house
the custom house brokers, after giving a
lousing cheer, formed in line behind the
cotton brokers.
The parade continued down Broad street
to Exchange place, thence to New street
and again to Wall street. The column was
then turned into Broad street and the
march into the Stock Exchange begun.
Tumult reigned for several minutes on the
exchange floor. Many of the members
formed In line and marched with the brok
ers up Nassau street to Maiden lane. A
warm reception was accorded them on
Broadway, where the parade was partially
disbanded. The Produce Exchange mem
bers marched again into their exchange and

t'on of McKinley occurred. After a short

Everett, at Guatemala City, saying that

Special to the Indianapolis Journal.
ANDERSON, Ind., Nov. 7. Governor
elect "SVinfield T. Durbin has passed a busy
day at his home here. He did not retire till
after 3 o'clock this morning. Rejoiclns Re
publicans by hundreds called at his house,
which was open to everybody. A band
serenaded him and other candidates during
the evening. Before 9 o'clock messages be
gan rolling in from all parts of the State,
assuring him of an overwhelming victory.
He was up early, however, this morning, as
bright and fresh as ever, and began tho
work of clearing his desk. It seemed a
hopeless task as telegrams of congratula
tion by the dozen have been pouring in
every hour to-day and this evening there is
a stack of several hundred.
He has been seen by hundreds of callers
each eager to congratulate him. To-day
there has been a score of delegations from
the farming districts to visit Col. Durbin at
his home. He met all in his usual cordial
manner and made many new friends. He
was advised, early to-day, that the busi
ness men and citizens in general had
planned for a monster demonstration to
take place here Saturday night, in his
honor, and at that time all the Madison
county cities, towns and villages will cele
brate the sweeping victory. Committees
have been appointed and the arrangements
are now well under way. Col. Durbin al
ready has received a number of Invitations
to be present at ratification meetings over
the State, but has," as yet, made no definite
plans. He expects to meet the Commercial
Travelers' Association in Indianapolis soon.
Last night. Just before retiring, Col. Dur
bin sent a cable message to his bosom
friend, Consul General J. K. Gowdy, at
Paris, in keeping with a promise of a few
months ago. While at breakfast thl3 morn
ing the following was received: "Hearty
congratulations. Shake. Gowdy."

It Ia Tempered by the Defeat of Mr.
Hanna for Conp.re.
Special to the Indianapolis Journal.
FORT WAYNE, Ind., Nov. 7. Republic
ans and Gold Democrats here feel Intense
satisfaction over the resu!t in the Nation
and State, but deeply regret that the gallant
fight made by R. B. Hanna for Congress
was not successful. Hundreds of Democrats
join in the feeling, but from a different mo
tive. They deplore the fact that Robinson
should have the honor of being the first
Democrat to break the two-term record.
It is not probable that cither party will
hold a ratification meeting.
The returns show that Hanna has 1.1
majority In Steuben county, in La
grange, where l.ttiO was expected, 3-.0 in
Noble, where i'J) was expected, making a
total of 2,wi. Robinson carried Allen
county by 2.309, and probably will have
500 in Whitley and De Kalb together, tlius
electing him by from 30 to 4. Hanna
gained in evry county over two years agvi,
but the gain here was much less than was
county ticket, which was not o generally
voted by th McKinley Democrats.
The ptirty lines were rigidly drawn her
by the active Republican campaign of the
last week, and. owing to the difficulty .f
scratching a tick t, Hanna lost the ad
vantage hi frler.d3 thought ho had. ap
parentl3 with good reason.
Deelded dissatisfaction i felt here with
the cumbersome mot hoi of voting, and the
machine system will bo welcomed. It i
evident that some Republicans, presumably
former shopmalrs of Robinson, and vet
erans who gave him credit for pension
favors, voted for Robinson. The township
contests resulted in the Republicans gain
ing several trustees, and nearly l.ing or.o
in Sprlnglleld townthlp, where tho result
was a tie. Nothirg 1m known a.i to the
fate of the amendment.
