Review of Business Made by Bradstreet la Favorable. Bradstreet’s says: “Unseasonably warm weather continues the ieading di rectly unfavorable feature of distributive trade because of the check given to re tail distribution tad therefore to reorder business in most lines of dry goods, wear ing apparel and shoes. Conservatism, in view of the near approach of the presi dential election, is undoubtedly an ele ment exercising considerable influence, but a conspicuous exception to this is found in the reawakening of demand and the advances in prieps shown in the iron trade in widely separated sections. This is really one of the most important de velopments of the week and is taken as indicating not only that confidence is felt, but that consumers’ stocks are down to a minimum. Wheat, including flour, ship ments for the week aggregate 3,G12,421 bushels, against 4,932,978 last week.

Republican National Ticket Wins by a Good Majority. William McKinley aud Theodore Roosevelt have been elected President and , \ ice- President, respectively, by a majority of electoral votes larger ihau that given iu 1806 to McKinley and Ho bart. The Republican tendency through out the nation was strong enough, appar ently, to secure the election of a Congress which will be Republican in both houses. The State of New York, in spite of the strenuous efforts made to secure an over whelming Bryan vote in New York City, has given the Republican candidates a large plurality. Illinois. Michigan, Min in Alters A. HANNA. Chairman of the Republican National Committee. uesota, Indiana and Ohio have given a similar result, and although the Republi can plurality in Massachusetts has been strikingly reduced, owing doubtless to the strength of the anti-imperialist sentiment there, it is still decisive. Maryland has had a Republican landslide similar to that of four years ago. In the great West beyond the Missouri the Republicans make gains. They have held California, Oregon and North Da kota, which they carried four years ago They have carried Kansas, South Da kota, Washington, Utah, Wyoming, Idaho and possibly Nebraska, all of which were for Bryan in 1896. So far as incomplete returns indicate at this writing Mr. Bryan tailed to win the elec toral vote of any of “ke States that were classed as doubtful. Practically all the States that declared for McKinley in 1896 did the same at this election. Mr. Bryan made heavy inroads into the Republican majorities of four years ago in nearly all the Eastern States, espe cially those of New England. In Massa chusetts the McKinley majority was re duced practically 100.000 as compared with four years ago. The city of Boston gives Mr. Bryan a small plurality. The New York Democratic leaders fulfilled their pledge to carry greater New York for Mr. Bryan, but the State vote was overwhelmingly Republican. There was a phenomenally heavy vote throughout the entire country. Out of the forty-five States and three territories Mr. Bryan failed to make substantial gains anywhere except in the East. Even there the euttiug of Republican majorities was in sufficient to give him the electoral vote of a single State that declared for Mr. McKinley four years ago. In the West most of the States that rolled lip big free silv.-r majorities in 1896 were apparently iess enthsuiastie for Mr. Bryan this year. President McKinley has broken all rec ords aud upset all traditions in American polities. He is the first man to defeat twice in succession the same opponent iu the presidential race. He is the finrt President sime Grant to secure a second term immediately following his first. ELECTION OF 1900 Campaign Mas Waged a* Desperately as Any in the Country’s History. More than 15.000,000 freemen went to the polls Tuesday to elect the twenty sixth President of the United States. The presidency this year was fought for as desperately as ever in the country’s history. President McKnney took no ac tive part, the dignity which he owed his office forbidding him to make a canvass. But the ticket and the cause were de fended in the field by Republican ora tors and statesmen, particularly the Pres ident’s running mate. Gov. Roosevelt's campaign in the last few ruonths has par alleled those which in other years have caused the country to look with amaze ment on Blaine, Bryan. McKinley and other apparently tireless speakers. Mr. Bryan repeated his performance of 1896. He pleaded his cause before more than a thousand audiences and spoke to several million voters. Whatever criti cisms his opponents have made of his governmental theortc;. and policies, ail unite in admiration if his indomitable will, confident spirit and marvelnns phy sique. A campaign that would exhaust the average man seemed to tire him but slightly. Few men conld endure the ex ertion. physical and mental, which was required of Mr. Bryan during the cam paign. The efforts of these two stars in tba political firmament were seconded by nurfc speakers as Senators Hanna. and a host of lesser 15; h* -of He puhlieanism. fn 1806 Mr. Bryan had but little assistance from the speakers f the Democratic rank'. This year he had the warm support of such able cam paigners as Bourke C -kran. ex-Senator Hill. 0 ari S. inirz and others. The campaign committees and political leaders of the various parties made every possiht* effort to present the ismiea. to the voters of the country. The Southern vote was normal and there were no defections iu Tins section from the Democratic columns. BATTLE OF THE BALLOTS. McKINLEY, 292. BRYAN, 155. COMPLEXION OF CONGRESS. SENATE. | HOUSE.

Mr. Bryan received the news of the general result at his home in Lincoln. At 8 o'clock, when newspaper men sought to secure a statement from him, they were told that he had just gone to sleep. When he retired to h.. own room he glanced over the returns with apparent interest, and then, expressing a desire to make up some of the rest he had lost in the past few weeks, lay down and was asleep in less than five minutes, thus manifesting probably less concern than hundreds of thousands of others.

[>a ticularly in times like Jw present, whe* speculation in stocks coia very little figure in the totals. The ex changes made through the Chicago in October were not only the largest shown for any month so far thi# year,, but with a single exception were the best on record. The total was $007,631,037, which was only about $7,000,000 below the record mark, made in December, ISDIL Considering the fact that De®o ber is usually ihe best business rnrarte in thi* year and that the month just clew ed was one in which politics all over the country was at fever heat, this showing, is considered a good one.

The advance in wheat waft Otle partly to diminishing domestic rood pOk but in larger degree to the news from Argentina of an unfavorable outlook for the growing crop, llad the alleged cause of the damage been other than excessive rain it would doubtless have had more influence with the trade. As none of the reports specified in what way the plant was being injured by rain at a period of its growth when on light soil vain might be considered more of a benefit than * detriment, the entire claim of damage that subsequent favorable weather might not repair was received with skepticism, hence the comparatively minor effect on prices. People in the trade here doubt less will apply their home experience to what is good or bad for the wheat plant of Argentina until they see cause to be lieve that the conditions of its growth differ from those (hat govern it in all the other.countries where it is produced.

I>ur iug tliis period he held the absolute con fidence of the bank president and of the other officials of the institution. In Mount Vernon, where he had a perma nent home, he wss looked up to as a model citizen. He and his wife moved in the most exclusive circles and outer tained with lavislmess. No word wait ever uttered against die honor and the honesty of the man. And yet this trust ed official stole S7(K\OOO of the funds of the bank. His peculations extended over a long period, and though the nffuirs of the bank wore at stated periods examined by national experts no discovery of crook edness was made by them. It remained for an humble employe of the bauk to have bis suspicions aroused and then came the investigation that resulted in the startling disclosure. “I have played and lost. I’ll take the consequences.” Thus coolly did Alvorii take his arrest when he was run Howe in a lodging house in Boston. Betrayed by two friends for the sake of the $5,001L reward offered by the bnnk for his cap tore, Aivord was located. BELONGED TO THE DEAD. Thousands Worth of Unclaimed Val uables in Galveston. Only 5 per ccut of the in one y and val uables tiike;i from bodies removed from the wreckage ut Galveston Las been Lclaimed. The money aggregate? several thousand dollars, ami there are other val liable* to the amount of over SIOO,OOO in jewelry and silverware. Capt. J. B, Alvey, who was appointed by Adjt. Geu Scurry at the time the city was under martini law to take charge of money and valuables, has kept a complete list of ev erything turned over to him. The money and other artieles have been deposited in a vault awaiting claimants, ('apt. Alvey has on hand more than a carload of alt sorts of valuables and his stock is in creasing with each day’s work. In this lot he has more than a heaping lmshe! measure of watches, the works, of course, being ruined, though in many instant-eft the eases are valuable. He has ov*r two pecks of all sorts of rings, from the big diamond fellow to a birthday atons and plain silver band. There r:o big float loads of all sort?: or silverware and about three liaat loads of odds and ends, nil of more or less value. He has about two bushels of trinkets, sue'i as hreaut pirns, brooches, bracelets, etc. The money taken from the pockets has been a tough proposition, as have also many of the rings on account of the stench they give out. Capt. Alvey thinks that after the val uables have been turned over to sumv Btate official they should be advert overt for n certain period, and then if there w no claimant, they should be sold and the amount realized from the sale turned over to the relief fund.
