EBEX9BURG, CAMBRIA CO., PA.,
FRiDAY, .-- - VEMHERfi. !.
If Turkey, gays the New York Sun,
w re out of the way, Spa id
would form the most appalling spectacle
of any nation in the world. Her name
olaucU for the tragedy of the tiroes. Her
overweening vanity and abject poverty,
her warlike ululaiions and military mis
adventures, her internal perils and ex
t trnal troubles, her Carlifcts and her
Anarchists, the wrecking of her treasu
ry, the battling of her armies, the pros
tration of her power, and the cries of
her people, furnish material for chap
ters in the history of the age such as
can be written of no other European
country, Turkey excepted.
The timely arrival of thousands of
tons of California wheat at Calcutta has
bad the effect of reducing the prices of
breadstuff in India and has stayed
the march of famine. To deal
with destitution arising from a lack of
food in a country with a population
more than three times as great as that
of the United Spates is a herculean un
dertaking which tasks not only the re
sources put the administrative ability of
the Indian Government to the utmost.
The Calcutta dispatches say that 53,800
persons have been employed upon pub
lic works set on foot purposely for the
alleviation of suffering laborers.
Acout 2,100 employes have been ad
ded to the classified service by the issu
ance of an order by the president at
Washington, on Tuesday, directing that
the rales of the navy department (regu
lating employment of labor at the navy
yards shall not be changed without ap
proval of the civil service commission.
The ordinance department at large is
placed in the classified service under
civil service rules. The executive order
also classified txaminers in the depart
ment of justice and exempted from ex
amination attorneys and asistant at
torneys now in the department whose
main duties are connected with the man
agement of cases in court.
It is reesonably certain McKinley and
Hobart are elected, but the majority is
likely to be, from indications at 1:30
o'clock to-day, a narrow one a much
narrower one than has been looked for,
as the result of the earlier dispatches.
The following electoral votes are con
ceded to McKinley: Connecticut 6,
Illinois 24, Iowa 13, Maine G, Maryland
8, Massachusetts 16, Michigan 14, Min
nesota 9, New Hamshire 4, New Jersey
10, New York 36, Ohio 23, Pennsylvania,
32, Rhode Island 4, Vermont 4, Wis
consin 12, total 220.
The probabilities point with great cer
tainty to Delaware, with its three votes,
and Indiana, with its fifteen, as
Republican and as furnishing more
than the 224 requisite to constitute
a mainly in the electoral college.
The three votes of North Dakota appar
ently belong to McKinley. and the same
may be said of the three votes of Oregon
and those of Kentucky, but in all cases
the returns are too inadequate to justify
a definite conclusion.
The farm and labor vote for Bryan so
confidently counted on as one of the cer
tainties of the election, says the Pitts
burg JW, did not materialize as expect
ed in such numbers as to carry Republi
can states. Still it is evident there was
a decided di if t towards Bryan and free
silver. A little experience is needed of
government by trusts and for the ag
grandizement of trusts, and that labor
on the farm and in the shop is sure to
get. Time is on our side. Ten
years before Lincoln issued his
emancipation proclamation both the
great political parties of this country re
Solved in their platforms that there
should be an end of anti-slavery agita
tion. The free soil candidate for presi
dent in 1852 got only 150,000 votes in
all the states of the Union. Eight years
later Lincoln got nearly two millions and
was elected. The slave oligarchy was
not a circumstance to Mark Hanna's
oligarchy of trusts and corporations and
plutocratic power, and in the end it will
be as badly shattered as the slave power
was, and through the peaceful agency
or the ballot box. Let no one be dis
con raged an to the future.
No presidential candidate ever
emerged from a campaign so clean and
wholesome as has Mr. Bryan. Of him
the Washington Post of Tuesday a
journal politically opposed to him 6aid:
"He has borne himself with courage
and devotion from the beginning to the
end of the campaign. He has exhibi
ted such qualities of endurance, such
sublimity of faith in himself and his
mission, such a power over men, such
gifts of eloquence and magnetism, as
may truly be said to be without parallel
in the history of American politics. He
has swayed multitudes as no political
orator ever did before. He ;has moved
men and women to sorrow and rejoic
ing, to hope and fear, to such exaltation
as seemed beyond the experience of hu
manity in these days. That he was
earnest, sincere, beyond the thought of
selfishness and sordid appetite, we veri
ly believe. We here pay tribute to the
purity, the candor, and the utter self
abnegation of his course."
Julian Hawthorne, the distinguished
author who has spent much time with
Mr. Bryan during the past three months,
thu3 speaks of the man and his labors':
"They have been the labors of a Her
cules, done in the cause of truth and
humanity, and he who has Derformwi
them deserves the highest reward in the
gift of his countrymen. He has been
brave and faithful. He has battled
against that worst form of anarchy which
consists in the dead weight of a pluto
cratic depotism. During this conflict
he has struck no foul blow. He has
uttered no personality. He has stooped
to no falsehood. No warrior ever
emerged from the thick of battle with
cleaner hands and ensign more spot-Jess.
Chairman Josk- issued the following
statement Thnrsr ly: "The r sult of
the presidential ek Hion a apparently no
longer in doubt, It has b n one of the
closest contests that the people have
been called onto determine in rrceni
yerrs. We have claimed the election on
our advices from states that were admit
tedly in doubt, in whi.-h we knew there
had been many fra'ids. and from which
there were evidence of tampering with
the returns It seems now to be appar
ent that while Mr Bryan, after making
the most brilliant campaign in the his
tory of the country and having carried
most of the states claimed to l e doubt
ful, has not carried enough to assure his
success in the electoral college.
"Bryan electors have been chosen
from all of the states eou'h of the Poto
mac and Ohio except West Virginia and
all those west of the Missouri except Cal
ifornia and Oregon. He has 100 electo
ral votes and this number may be in
creased by final returns from states yet in
question. He has not obtained enough
votes to carry the electoral college
"Thus this remarkable campaign closes
with the election of William McKinley.
The rosult was brought about by every
kiud of coercion and intimidation on the
part of the money power, including
threats of lockouts and dismissals and
impending starvation, by the employ
ment of by far the largest campaign fund
ever used in this country, and by the
subordination of a large portion of the
American press.
"The president-elect and his party are
under the pledge to the American peo
ple to continue the gold standard, and
by its operation to restore prosperity to
the country. As chief executive, Mr.
McKinley will have the cordial support
of the millions of patriotic Americans
who have cast their votes for William
Jennings Bryan. They bow to the ma
jesty of the office and abide by the result
with none of the mutterings that would
have come from the moneyed powers
had it been unsuccessful.
'They areconfident that gold standard
cannot give the promised prosperity,
but will gladly welcome it if it comes.
They will continue the great struggle
for the uplifting of humanity and the
maintenance of the dignity of our coun
try in the establishment of American
monetary system. And the Democratic
party, aided by its present allies, will
still uplift the bimetallic standord and
bear it on to victory. James K- Jones.
"Chairman of the National Democrat
ic Committee."
The American people, says the Har
risburg Patriot, appear to have decided
to stand by the single gold standard.
But they have decided in favor of the
single standaid tentatively, not perma
nently. They have chosen to give a ntw
party in power an opportunity to reme
dy the evils which the present adminis
tration could not cure, and they have
agreed that this party shall not be hamp
ered in the performance of its promises,
but they have by no means relinquished
the intention to revise and improve the
currency system.
Besides, the people were not ready for
the proposed currency change. Reforms
move slowly. Even Christianity was of
slow growth and of uncertain existence
for centuries. The opinion, or rather
the want of settled opinion, on the mon
ey question is illustrated in the attitude
and declarations of party platforms and
candidates in previous years. Both par
ties have been for free silver and against
it at various times, and the state which
has given the largest Republican major
ity was, only two years ago, committed
by the now victorious party to inflation
of the currency to forty dollars per capi
ta. The people being indignant at the
present administration and the Gorman
congress, suspicious of the party in pow
er and those who pose as its leaders, and
bent on revenge, not all ti e Democratic
votes that went to McKinley recorded
silver sentiment.
Now that this party matter is disposed
of Democrats will come together again
The people have only three months' ed
ucation on bimetallism, and taking this
fact into consideration the showing at
the polls was satisfactoiy. They will
now eagerly read and study the intrica
cies of the double standard during the
next four years with different results,
The silver campaign has not ended. It
is just begun. Every day of the next
four years it will be the dominant issue
and in November. l'JOO, the people will
command that the century shall begin
with this country declared for bimetal
lism.
The government of Great Britain and
Ireland does an anual postal business of
$55,000,000 and clears a profit of f 15.-
030,000 In the United States last year,
we did a business of $70,000,000 and
failed to the extent of $10,000,000 in
meeting expenditures. The reason for
this disparity is in the fact that Great
Britain lies on two small islands, with
an area of 121.571 square miles, or
something less than the area of New
York, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
Great Britain has a population of 290
to the square mile, while that of the
United States is only 14. Every part of
great Britain is thickly populated and is
easily accessible. In our own country
there are vast thinly populated regions
to which the mails are carried at a great
loss. To sustain this explanation it is
pointed out that the New York city of
fice yields the government $4,000,000 a
a year. The state of Massachusetts con
tributes $1,500,000, and Pennsylvania
and Illinoist take in a million each
above the expenses of their postal ser
vices: while in Nebraska, for examp'e,
the annual loss is about $1,250,000
Yet postal communication with Nebras
ka and other thinly populated states is
as essential to a complete postoffice sys
tem as the better paying service of the
eastern states.
Thirty-three colored lawyers, includ
ing one woman, have been regularly ad

Cape May, N J.,Novembe-1 While
E P Stites, ex-Mavor IJildrtth and A
P. Hiklreth we e fishing for sea-trout
Suurdty near "Uncle Eph" bouy, two
and a half miles from the Cape shore,
a school of large whales came within a
fe. yards of their boat. They rolled
their huge black sides out of the water
and blew great fountains of water high
in the air. The seasoned fishermen
were startled when the spray fell into
their skiff, making it necessary to bail
out the boat as a precaution for another
blow of the whales.
Keeper Sooy, of the Cold Spring life
saving station, was also near the school,
and he and his mates got a drenching
from the showers of water falling about
them. After playing near the fishes
men, the whales disappeared seaward.
Stites. who is an experienced shoreman,
thinks the monsters were sixty feet
long.
Hogs Fftl It r ok mi Glass.
Billefonte, Pa., Novemler 1 Vw
ing the past two or three weks hog
cholera has been prevalent through ul
some portions of Centre county and a
number of farmers have lost valuable
stock with the disease. A few days ago
a poor man in this place, James F
Gregg, lost two large hogs, which would
weigh nearly three hundred each. On
their death the symptoms did not indi
cate cholera or any other disease, and
Mr. Sregg secured the services of a vet
erinarian to examine the animals to find
out what caused their death. On being
opened it was discovered that the hogs
had been fed broken glass and that their
entrails were literally cut to pieces
This is a penitentiary offense if the vil
lian who did the deed can be found out.
Daring Attempt to Hub a 1'osloBlre
Wilkesbarre, Ta., November 3. A
daring attempt was made early in the
morning to rob the postotiice at Ply
mouth. The door of the big safe was
blown off with such that it shook the
building and surrounding buildings.
People living in the vicinity thought an
earthquake had occurred, and they hast
ily dressed and came out on the streets.
Smoke was seen coming from the post
O lice, and the fire department was called
out. It was found that sparks from tl e
powder had set fire to the mail bags.
The flames were soon extinguished.
Postmaster Callary, upon his arrival,
found all the valuables in the safe un
