William McKinley has been elected by an
overwhelming majority, and the anxiety of all
patriotic bcarts gives place to a Joy too profound
for expression. It is not only a victory, hut one
so complete and decisive as to answer the fer?
vent prayers of loyal men. Hryan, Bryanlsm.
Altgeldlsm. the free-silver conspiracy, and the
Aten plots of Anarchists, are all buried under an
avalanche of ballots. There have been few
grander moments In the history of self-govern?
ment than thi?. It lifts up all manhood to see
a Nation of seventy millions triumph so com?
pletely over Its own lower impulses, its own past
errors. Its own bastar elementa. It is but four
yeaiv since amazing ignorance of our own his?
tory and the conditions of past growth and pros?
perity, passionate hatred of corporations and
creditors, seetioual feeling at the West and
South, and base appeals to the poor against the
rich and to worklnirmcn against employers, pro?
duced an astonishing vote for a change at the
acme of general welfare. It is but few years
since fanatical desire for silver coinage and cheap
money swept the country like a prairie Are. To?
day the whole Nation rises by treading on its
own mistakes and its own most dangerous ten?
dencies, and JoIn6. none more heartily than many
who contributed to the error, in the triumphant
ahouts with which the majority In this greatest
of Democratic cities hails the verdict of the
? This is an hour of pride In American, citizen?
ship, of thankfulness to the loyalty and the
heroism of the gemmation by which such sons
were reared, of reward for the fidelity In public
education which has made it possible to appeal
to the Intelligence of a whole Nation, ami of
profound gratitude to the Giver of all Good. The
election of Mr. McKinley has been expected ever
since It was seen that the people, regardless of
their accustomed leaders, demanded his nomina?
tion because he was to ihem the best represent?
ative of a great cause upon which their hearts
were Ret. What the millions want, with such a
cause, they surely do. But In trying to defeat
the people's will by an appeal to all that is most
dangerous and basest In man. and to the nether
forces of society, the silver Anarchists have
made the triumph of the people far greater and
more fruitful than a mere victory for.a sound
and beneficent economic policy. They have
roused against themselves the honesty and the
loyalty of the Nation, and earned a defeat so
crushing that, we may hope. It will prevent an?
other such attempt for at least a generation.
At the hour of writing It seems probable that
Mr. Lincoln's popular majority of 407,000 over
McClellan. and ?rant's majority, at his second
election, hare been far surpassed: that instead
of the little more than two-thirds in the House
by which Grant was sustained the people have
sent three-quartera of their Representatives to
represent McKinley, and in spite of the Sena?
torial strength possessed by the five pocket bor?
oughs of ailrer millionaires, the people have an
anred a clear Republican majority In the Senate.
The patriotism of the Sound Money Democrats
deserve? unstinted praise. Their manful und
effective organization, and untiring work against
the agrillan forces which had.selted control of
tbetr party, and the energy with which they
combated those forces where it seemed possible
they might preraU, showed genuine patriotism.
After providing a ticket which Democrats couh
support with liDiiest.v and loyalty, most of then
voted directly for McKinley, while strongly dis

The months of trial, anxiety and ceaseless ef
fort are over, and the mainiiHo-nt result tells
the world how grandly the Nation has again
met the test of its manhood, its wisdom and its
loyalty. Long after iiV chief actors have pasted
from the stage, their d?cris in 1898 will be re
membered with a thrill of patriotic Joy and
gratitude, even as the immortal deeds of Lincoln
and of Grant. Saved again, from a peril uni less
greal than that of the Rebellion itself, the people
will not fall to honor, first of all William Mc?
Kinley himself, whose statesmanship and lofty
patriotism have been nol more conspicuous than
bis wise leadership, and next Mr. 11.iiiii.'i and his
associates, win? have so magnificently organized
victory. They will gratefully remember a press
never before so patriotic or so powerful, and an
grmy of campaign orators. But, above all, it is
the victory of the people, who have once more
shown with startling distinctness their capacity
and therefore their right lo govern themselves.
Yesterday morning, at the edge of the gr??tes!
and most momentous political contest this coun?
try has ever seen of the world has ever known.
The Tribune congratulated its readers upon the
certainty of the triumph not merely of the funda?
mental Republican principies of Protection and
Sound Money, but of Common Honesty and of
Law. Its conclusion was: "To-day the Intelli
"genc* and conscience of the Nation wi!'. make
"themselves felt. And to tuorro-vv this People
"will draw a long breath of relief from the ter
"rihle suspense of three months and say, with
"devout earnestness. Thank God!"'
"To morrow ' has come. To-day The Tribune,
with all ils readers, with all honest men and all
patriota in this country and all mer. everywhere
who believe in the reign of law and of justice, of
civil order, draws a long bteatb, and in concert
with them all says "Thank God!'' Nothing else
fitly expresses the profound emotion, the deep
and Almost unutterable sense of gratitude which
pervades the whole country this morning. Even
the most tindevout and sceptical unite in the fer?
vent and whole-souled ejaculation. It is the only
adequate expression of the general sense of re?
lief. ,.
All yesterday men who believed from the very
bottom of their hearts thai there could be but
one retail were hesitating and shaky, and look?
ing into each other's eyes for some positive as?
surance of what they kept saying to themselves
was certain. Ii was the timidity that grew out
of an overwhelming sense at the last moment
of ihe magnitude of Ihe risk and the tremendous
stake. Men and women who had no idea that
their neighbors liad a lingering doubt M to the
Issue suddenly looked each other in the face ami
thought of the possibilities involved. And as
they thought of them they drew in their breath
and said "What if?-7"
Well, it's all over now, and as The Tribune
said several days ago. "There is no 'What If.'
God reigns." There's no doubt now, either
about the event or the deep feeling that per?
vaded the public mind in anticipation of It. The
great crowds thai surrounded the bulletins last
night in all parts of this town and made known
their Joy, with never a break In the general en
ihusiasm, were only an indication of tin' feeling
throughout the country. Everybody breathes
easier and feels better this morning.
And now this remains to be considered. Do
we want any more of this? Do we want to take
any more chances with this sort of demagogue?
Do we want to dismiss this man Bryan with the
charitable Judgment that he ?s honest, bot nils
guided? Tie says he will continue the fight.
Well, will Ire? shall we let him? Isn't It about
time to dismiss all other considerations and say
of this man and of his fellow-conspirators, thn
Altgelds, the Tillmans. the Joneses and all the
rest, that they are Just what they are. enemies
of honesty, of law, of order, of all that good men
bold dear? There was great meaning in the
sihirance with which Cicero dismissed his C..ti
line when he hissed his "Iste homo!" Let this
fellow go with the hissing of a people's scorn.
11770 WONt
More than twelve million voters east their
ballots yesterday. It was the climax of the
most importnnt and most impressive electoral
campaign ever waged upon American soil.
For four months the conflict had rt'ged In all
parta of the rnion. The publie press had
teemed with records, incitements, arguments.
Pamphlets and tracts by hundreds of millions
had been scattered broadcast. An army of
orators had harangued the multitudes wherever
people ooold be gathered together. The air had
biased with banners, and the solid ?arth had
trembled beneath the measured tread of march?
ing myriads. Fortunes in money had been ex?
pended, besides lime and labor still more valua?
ble. The whole Nation watched the struggle
in agonized suspense; the whole world looked
on with keenest Interest. It was a mighty con
tliei, fitly crowned with a mighty victory. But
who won?
The people won. The "plain people" made
sure that "government of the people, for tho
"people, by the people, shall not perish from
"the earth.*1 The farmers won. They van?
quished those who sought to compel them to ac?
cept half-price, in clipped coin, for the produce
of their fields. The workiiiKmen, the wage
earners, ?roa. They defeated those who tried
to cut their wages In two. The thrifty deposi?
tors in savings banks won. They ba/Iled the
SCbemea of those who would have lobbed them
of half their savings. The holders of life-in?
surance policies won. They vv?<re victorious
over those who proposed to foiee repudiation
of half their policies. The army of pensionen?,
wards of the Nation, won. They beat the un?
grateful conspirators who attempted to cut
dowu their little incoases by one-half. Churches
and schools and hospitals and asylums won.
They triumphed over those who meant to rob
them of half their Incomes. All honest indus?
tries, business, society, won, in the overthrow of
those who coi spired for depression, ruin and
Law and order won. The Federal Govern?
ment was vindicated against those who denied
its authority and sought to deprive It of all
power to maintain the Constitution and execute
the laws. The postal service was made vic?
torious over the revolutionist? who demanded
that the carrying of the mails should be done
only at the pleasure of the mob. The courts
won. triumphant over the abominable conspir?
acy to make ihem political machines whose de?
cisions should be lioiight and sold at bidding
of some venal lioss. The Civil Service won,
over the ?ttei.ipt to revamp the old. corrupt
?poils system. The National Treasury won,
over those who would have made It a counter?
feiters' den. The whole incorporate Nation
won. against the traitors who sought to make
Its very name a byword and a hissing.
Truth won. Righteousness won. <b?d won.
The moral law was vindicated in affairs of
State. It was decrec? that this Nation should
continue to count two and two ns 'c.,,. ?hat
stealing should still be reckoned stealing, that
contracts should be hold valid, that faith sjionid
be maintained, that equal and exact Justice
should be administered between man and man,
and batiesen nation and nation. It was decided,
by the majestic mandate of the people, that
there should he no organisation of hostile classes,
no "enemy's country" ?u the I'nited Ststes. but
peace and equality before the law. and unity un?
der one Constitution and one Flag. These are
they, these ?re the causes, triumphant in yes?
terday*? ?real battle at tbe polls. It was the
Gettysburg of industry. It was a Waterloo
for Anarchy. Ii was the Marathon of hon?
esty. It was n victory so glorious that men
who yesterday cast their Ural votes will thrill
with pride, in now long-distant tature reara to
?ell the story to their grandsons, and to say.
"We voted for McKinley, and we won!"
Reader? <>f The Tribune will now ?bare our
satisfaction in regarding the course of this .four?

for the Republican nomination. Waging no
prescriptive war against any candidate, we stead?

promote the plans of tin- macblne bosses. We
insisted on the right of the people to make tbe
nomination, Hied to illuminate tbe course of the
popular thought and give voice to the people'?
desires. When wise Senators and others remon?
strated with us for ??leaning too Strongly" to
'the wabbling McKinley." our only reply was
titat ere were merely following the manifest
popular will, and that he didn't ?rabble.
It is generally safe to gel dose to the people;
and never so safe as when a supreme emergency

Since Lincoln there has been no higher proof of
the wisdom of the plain people than the nom

New-York has giren its answer to the Invita?

by rolling op against the candidate who dared
to ask its vote in such a cause the largest ma
jority erar cast in the State. It puts Its thirty
six electoral votes in the McKinley column and
does It wilh an emphasis wlo.li shows that the
Empire state is pre-eminent for its devotion m
financia] honesty and political sanity, as well
as for its population and industrial progress.
Tbe Republican victory in this state is com?
plete. The strongholds of tbe Democracy re?
volted against tbe Anarchist platform, ami the
Republican districts firmly resisted all appeals
to selfish interest, prejudice and passion. Tbe
predicted desertion of the farmers to free silver
did not materialize. On the contrary, tbe rural
districts vied with the centres of trade and
commerce in declaring for sound money ami
protection. Not only does McKinley carry tbe
State by about 250,000, but the Republicana
apparently pled twenty-nine Congressmen and
an Assembly which makes certain a Repub?
lican successor to David B. Hill in the 1 nited
States Senate. Republican control of the State

For the second time in its history the Repub

seven votes accredited to the State In 1861, am!
, four years later the whole seven were thrown

Merely as a sublime Spectacle New-York wore
I the aspect of a great force of nature last night
| Poeta have written of the sea in its might, and
Milton has painted the gigantic splendors of
bell. It is no exaggeration to say that the streets
of the city were lifted far above their familiar
I prosaic character when the millions who stream
, through them day by day paused on the Inter?
val between National suspense and National
vindication of an eternal right paused and sent
: up one great snout of Jubilation. Then did com
' inonplacc Madison Square, commonplace Print?
ing House iqnara, throw off tbe plain guise
i of business life and stand forth like Milton's
i Infernal pageant, like one of Swinburne's puis?
sant visions of the sea. It matters not that
i our similes are borrowed from the height of
majestic beauty, from the depths of Satanic
i wonder; New-York took on in Ita hour of
triumph a grandeur that sent the mind to the
two poles which mean the extreme? of dramatic
signiticaiice. A disenfranchised man, one win.

heart's core by the sight which met his eyes
had he travelled down from Central Park to

New-York was one world of upturned fares.
i one storm of sound. It was chaos come again,
with the promise of a divine order trembling
! up from the abyss.
How Idl?' it must ever seem to any one who
saw this spectacle to revert any longer to the
Hanging Gardens of Babylon, to the Pyramids,
to the highest Alps, to Rome, to any of the
i wonders of the world, for standards of trratnl
1 our. The greatest grandeur Is that which is
nllvc with the spirit of God. and It was with
! that spirit that New-York was last night Inter?
penetrated until the commonest mortal be

to go about our affairs in the quietest of moods,
coulfl ever have stood for hours and shonted

man who lived through it can ever forget It. no
man who looked around upon his fcllowinen

the history of our Nation can erase the scene

newed the passionate thrill which De QtHncey
gives his reader when the latter peruses for
the first time that matchless epic of "The
Plight of a Tartar Tribe." No narrow pride
impels us to this statement, no partisanship,
no belief thai Republicana alone could have
done this thing. It was the work of a nation.

f700f) RIDDANCE.
Triumph prompts magnanimity. Victors can
afford to be generous. And usually there la noth?
ing more becoming In a conqueror than gen?
erosity to the vanquished. When Grant said to
Lee's veicrans. "Take your horses and go home,"
he added lustre to his brightest fame. But there
are exceptions to the rule. "They enslave their
"children's children who make compromise with
"sin." and they do worse than that who, having
overcome evil with good, condone the evil and
let it again become maletic. There are some
movements so haw some causes so depraved,
that neither victory can justify them nor defeat
entitle them to commiseration.
Such a cause was that which was vanquished

Of tho American people. While It was active and
menacing, it was anaparlagly denounced and re?

judgment of it should be revised. The Rung ara*

Some Interesting remarks on the subject of tall
buildings are contributed to The North Ameri?
can Review" by Mr. A. L A. Himmelwrlght, an
engineer who has had considerable experience
In the construction of plants for larg industrial
enterprises, and Is now the manager of the de?
partment of fireproof construction In the John
A. Roebllng*a Sons Company. As an expert on
the subject of fireproof buildings What he has j
to say on this head is of special importance, I
though we note that he affirms that "previous to |
"1802 very little was known about practical
"methods of 'flreproofing.' " Ah a general propo- j
sltlon this is perhaps fairly correct, but It was
more then fifteen years previous to 1898 that !
The Tribune Building was erected with Special I
care that It should be flreproof, and the fact that I
it la so bns been demonstrated on more tha?- '?
one occasion, when fires have broken out In ft
and have with little difficulty been confined to
.,ne or two apartments, without the slightest
damage to the building as a whole. We agree '
with Mr. Mmmelwrti lit cordially when he aays
that "in order that a building shall be flreproof
"it is not only necessary hat the materials BSSd
"shall be Incombustible, bur also that those ma?
terials shall be so ?.dapted and employed to the
"best advantage that they may effectually resist
"disintegration and retain their strength and
"firmness under all the i onditlona that may arise
"in the ease of a conflagration and the subse?
quent operations of a fire department." Unhap?
pily, experience has shown that this Is not the
case as respects many bnlldi srs which are pro?
claimed to lie flreproof, but have not proved to
be so when subjected to the only real and de
termlnlng teat.
Aa to high buildings constructed in accordance
with the modern practice Mr. Himmelwrlght
Is of the opinion that no limit can be set to the
height to which they may be safely run up.
Buildings of fifty or sixty stories he considers
as feasible as those of twenty-five or thirty
stories, provided the additional cost of the foun?
dations and structural Iron is not an ln~upera
ble obstacle to Investors. At the same time he
does not expect to see bUlldlngS of this height
erected, In his Judgment there are no architect?
ural or engineering difficulties in th way, but
he doubts whether they would prove profitable.
To this ?v? mav add that before such buildings
rire undertaken there will probably be a law
put on the statute-book placing a reasonable
limit to the height of buildings proportionately
to tiio width of the street on which they front.
Such a lav. was proposed In the last Legislature
In this Ht.it". I,-it fai!.-d to pa.-s.
Its failure Mr. HimmelwrlKht regards as a
Rood thin*; he say-, that If passed It "would
"prove a serious blow to owners of real estate,
"and wott' certainly fall to correct a rfngle one
"of the many flagrant evils that now exist." n?
seems to think, however, that the main objec?
tion to tall buildings 1? that sufficient light and
air cannot be provided to these who occupy
them; be take* no ncrount of the fa. ? that light
and Sir are shut out from adjoining buildings
and likewise from the street, which Is mad? a
damp ami sunless trench between massive
wiil!s. In connection with this pluiSS of the sub?
it i I he offers an interesting suggestion It Is
tb.it a In? be framed providing that > nly a cer?
tain proportion of the tMal frontag of a lot
should be occupied I y a building, leaving an
open spae# ,,n each ide of It. This he thinks
Would regulate the evils of high buildings ef?
fectually, and he proposes that a butlding should

which it stands, and ~2 per cent of the lot's
total area The suggest ion Is a good one. but It
Is doubtful Whether Its adoption would produce
th.- result desired unless there is also a law
regulating the height of tall business buildings.
