Chairman Martin Gives Out a State
ment on the Result Political
No et of men are more pleased with the
result of the election than the Gold Demo
crats, who undoubtedly had considerable to
do with bringing about the present result.
Col. L. M. Martin, who has been In charge
of the national headquarters here, left yes
terday for Chicago, and will go to his
home In Iowa, within a few days. Colonel
Martin will probably return to Indianapolis
for a brief visit within the next two
months. John P. Frenzel, secretary of the
National (Gold) Democratic committee, will
have charge of the headquarters as long
as they are kept open.
Mr.Frenzel, In speaking of the result of
the election yesterday, said: "What a splen
did victory for sound political principles
and what a terrible Indictment of the sham
and hypocrisy of the Popocratic candidate
and his managers. The result Is more than
gratifying and will be much greater in its
effect than the defeat of Mr. Bryan four
years ago. I Imagine and hope that out of
the debris will rise a rejuvenated and re
cleansed Democratic party and that those
Populistlc and other political cranks who
are not satisiled with genuine Democratic
principles will have to flock by themselves
as of yore. The repeated statement of the
managers of the Gold Democratic cam

and energy since the middle of September
In managing our headquarters and con
ducting our campaign. Both gentlemen de
serve, and no doubt, at the proper time,
will receive the sincere thanks of our gen
eral committee. In my opinion, Bryanism
and Populism under the guise of Democ
racy, are dead, and. perhaps I will not be

modesty when I say that no one will have
a greater right to perform the post-mortem
than the Gold Democrats."
THE SPEAKERS BL'REAU.
Vast Number of Speeches Made Some
The speakers bureau of the Republican
State committee practically closed up busi

assignments through this bureau, each
county in the State had a large number

at State headquarters, which would bring
the average up to over forty to a county,
or a total of about 4,000 speeches in tho
"This Is a record unprecedented In the

"A number of speakers were assigned to
Indiana by the national committee, most of
whom did excellent work. But the best
results were secured through our State
fcpeakers. It is a fact well known to
politicians throughout the country that In
diana has more able and brilliant cam
paign speakers than any State . in the
Union. There are ten or twelve men in
Indiana who cannot be equaled by the
same number of speakers that might be
selected from any other two States in tho
Union. One advantage the Indiana speak
ers have over a man who comes Into
the campaign work from other States is
that they are familiar with local is
sues and conditions; they are also inter
ested personally, as well as politically, in
the State's welfare and Its institutions,
and can always be depended upon to keep
tl eir engagements.
"During the campaign Just closed over
one hundred State speakers were acting
ui.der the direction of the State committee,
and over five hundred Republicans In In

The lack of ercitement, however, was not
due to a lack of interest, which was vi

A Dignified Statement from the Dem
There was very little commotion around
Democratic State headquarters yesterday.
Chairman Martin and Secretary Hawkins
were both there most of the day. Mr. Mar
tin within the next few days will close up
the headquarters and return to Spencer to
look after his business Interests there. Sec
retary Hawkins will be here for perhaps a
month before going back to his home in
Sullivan county. The secretary was In his
uual cheerful mood yesterday, despite the
fact that circumstances were hardly of a
character to bring smiles to the face of a
Bryanlte. Late yesterday evening Chair
man Martin made the following statement
to a Journal reporter:
"Indiana seems to have been caught In
the general landslide, and the Indications
are that the Republicans have carried the
State by an Increased plurality over the
vote of lS. The result Is largely. I think,
attributable to the large vote in the State
that was known to bo noncommittal, but
which wo believed would be cast Tor the
Democratic ticket. I exceedingly regret
the result on w. count of the Issues Involved,
as well as tti personal disappointment to
the gentlemen who were candidates on the
Democratic ticket. The campaign haa beep,
very free from personalities of all kinds,
both as to the State committees and can
didates, and we have nothing but kindest
feelings toward our friends who have been
successful, as well, as tne press of In
dianapoiia, that haa been uniformly kind
to this committee. The Democrats In the
various cuunties of the State made a heroic
fight, and were deserving of success." .
AT COMMITTEE HEADQUARTERS.
The Republican Leidem Feel Good
and Not Anxious to Work.
An air of peaceful quiet seemed to have
settled over republican State committee
headquarters on tho seventh floor of . the
Majestic building yesterday. Even the
click of the many typewriters that had
teen heard day and night for many weeks
was hushed. Those of the clerks and
stenographers, who have been retained
since the campaign really closed last Sat
urday, lounged about the rooms and rested
from their labors. Everybody looked glad,
and the big American eagle, mounted on
a starry pedestal In Chairman Hernly's
room, seemed to stand more erect. The
great American flags that hang above the
doora to the different rooms seemed lo
look fresher and brighter to those who
passed under them.
Chairman Ilernly was not at his desk
as early as was his wont during the cam
paign. When he came he had a smile for
everybody, that was broad and bland.
Archie Milliken, the chairman's handsome
chief clerk, walked with a step that
aragged slightly, but he smiled just the
same. Chairman Ilernly received a num
ber of visitors during the day. and all
came with congratulatory words. Harry
C Starr, of Richmond, one of the mem
bers of the executive committee, who has
worked very hard for party suc
cess, was about headquarters
part of the day, returning to his home last
night. Eugene Bundy, the other out-of-tewn
member of the executive committee,
went to his home at New Castle last night.
R. O. Hawkins who has also spent a great
deal of time and energy' assisting in the
work at headwqnarters. spent little tlmo
there yesterday, there being no need of his
services. Chairman Hernly will, go to
Rushvllle to-morrow night to attend a Jolli
fication meeting and on Saturday night
will be present at a similar affair! at New
Castle. Mr. Hernly said yesterday that the
rate committee would probably meet some
time next week. The chairman announces
that the State headquarters will be open
continuously but he does not expect to re
main In charge. Neither will Secretary
Blgler be here longer than Is necessary to
look after sucn matters as reauirc his
Things were rather quiet at county com
mittee headquarters also. Chairman Akin
and Secretary Elliott were at tho office very
