Associated Press Special Wire
CHICAGO. Nov. s.—Chairman Jones
issued the following statement tonight:
The result of the presidential election
Is apparently no longer in doubt. It
has been one of the closest contests that
the people have been called on to deter
mine In recent years. We have claimed
the election on our advices from states
that were admittedly In doubt, In which
we knew there had been many frauds,
and from which there were evidences of
tampering with the returns. It seems
now to be apparent that Mr. Bryan, af
ter making the most brilliant campaign
In the history of our country, and having
tarried most of the states claimed to be
doubtful, has not carried enough to as
sure his success in the electoral college.
Bryan electors have been chosen from all
of the states south of the Potomac and
the Ohio except West Virginia, and all
those west of the Missouri except Cali
fornia and Oregon. He has 190 electoral
votes, and this number may be Increased
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 result was brought about by every
kind of coercion and •Intimidation or.
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, ajid by
the subornation of a large portion of the
American press.
The president-elect and his party are
under the pledge to the American people
to continue the gold standard and by Its
operation to restore prosperity to this
country. As chief executive Mr. Mc-
Kinley will have the cordial support of
the millions of patriotic Americans who
have cast their votes for William Jen
nings Bryan. They bow; to the majesty
of the office ar.d abide b£ the result with
none of the mutterings that would have
come from the moneyed power had it
been unsuccessful.
They are confident the gold standard
cannot give the promised prosperity, but
will gladly welcome It if it comes. They
will continue the great struggle for the
uplifting ot humanity and the mainte
nance of the dignity of our country in
the establishment of the American mon ■
etary system. And the Democratic par
ty, aidi-d by its present allies, will still
uplift the bimetallic standard and bear
it on to victory. (Signed)
JAMES K. JONES,
Chairman Democratic National Com
mittee.
BRYAN'S MESSAGE.
LINCOLN, Neb.. Nov. 5. —Mr. Bryan
has sent the following telegram to Ma
jor McKinley: "Chairman Jones has
Just Informed me that the returns indi
cate your election and I hasten to extend
my congratulations. We have submitted
the issue to the American people and
their will Is law."
FAULKNER APPROVES.
The Democracy Bows to the Will of the
People.
WASHINGTON, Nov. s.—Senator
Faulkner tonight said:
"Chairman Jones has Informed me
that he will this evening concede the
election of Major McKinley.
"The confidence which Senator Jones
has inspired and the manner in which
he has conducted the campaign will
warrant me in saying that none will
question the propriety of his acting
promptly in so grave a matter, when
once he has becomethoroughly satisfied
from the returns fn his possession that
there remains no further hope for the
success of that magnificent leader whose
plume has been seen at the front of the
line of battle in thirty states and whose
, eloquent voice in behalf of the people's
cause has inspired millions of his fellow
citizens to strain every effort within the
lines of legitimate controversy to secure
a victory which would relieve them from
the merciless exactions of a continuing
contracting currency. The national
Democracy has been defeated, but
returns in our possession and which we
believe would be shown by the final vote
in the electoral college, twenty-six
states with 200 electoral votes, have in
dorsed its candidates and approved its
platform. But, true to that great Jef
fersonian principle, all must bow to the
will tof the people as voiced by the ma
jority of the electoral college."
CANDIDATE PALMER.
Also Thinks It Necessary to Issue a
Statement.
SPRINGFIELD. 111, Nov. S.—Senator
John M. Palmer, national Democratic
candidate for president, gives the fol
lowing statement to the Associated
Press:
"The Democrats who voted for Bryan
at the late election did so with the knowl
edge that he accepted the Populist plat
form of 1892, as well as their platform of
1f96 adopted in St. Louis. The national
Democracy will never seek an alliance
with the Populists. I predict that Mr.
Eryan. who voted for Weaver in 1892,
will soon abandon the Democratic name.
His candidacy, which was an example of
unreasoning socialism, was exploded by
the election of McKinley at the late
election. The issues of the canvass
were dictated to the Chicago conven
tion by that combination of politicians
who are without prlnlcple and only
sought success. They had before the
Chicago convention met matured plans
for the nomination of the same candi
date by the Populists at St. Louis. Mr.
Bryan, thanks to the good sense and in
tegrity of the American people, is de
feated. Democrats know that 'protec
tion,' as the Republicans call it, is a
fallacy, but also know that the unlimit
ed coinage of silver at 16 to 1 will de
prave the American monetary system
and produce infinite mischief. They
have accepted the least of the two great
evils. I have proof of their conduct and
thank the Democrats who have voted
against Biyan and Altgeld, who are the
reypresentatlves of a depraved currency
and social disorder."
THE ENGLISH BIMETALLISTS
Issue a Manifesto Regarding the Use of
Silver
, The Assumed Election of McKinley
Claimed to Be a Victory for In
ternational Bimetallism.
LONDON, Nov. 5.—A meeting of the
i members of the Bimetallic league was
in session all the forenoon, engaged in
drawing up a manifesto. Members
from Birmingham and Manchester and
elsewhere were in attendance. The doc
ument, issued tonight, is signed by
Messrs. A. T. Denham, H. R. Green
fell, Robert Barclay, H. C. Gibblis and
H. Macneil. It claims MeKinley's elec
tion Is a victory for international bi
metallism, and quotes the money plank
of the St. Louis platform. Continuing,
it says:
"In view of these circumstances and In
view of the strong agitation for free sil
ver or natural bimetallism In the state;-,
and the fact that this agitation is likely
to be maintained and developed, a gen
uine and determined effort upon the part
of the new government may be confi
dently anticipated to bring about an
international bimetallic agreement for
the opening of the mints of the various
countries to silver as well as to gold.
The recent contest has brought home to
the people of this country the vital im
portance of the monetary question, and
the grave dangers which threaten in
dustrial, commercial and financial in
terests of Great Brlta.a so long as it is
not settled on international lines. Tha
attitude of this country in the past
efforts to arrange a settlement is mainly
responsible for the attempt Just witness
ed to induce the United States to act
| alone, and for the consequent interest
and disturbance of commercial and
financial circles. Therefore, it is earn
estly hoped that this country and the
other great powers of Europe will heart
ily co-operate with the United States
In the endeavor to place the metallic
money of the world upon a permanent,
sound and scientific basis."

CANTON, Nov. 6.—Major McKinley
rose early this morning, appearing to
have entirely recovered from the Intense
physical and nervous strain of the last
two days. This morning he counted the
latest returns and private dispatches,
and found in them nothing to change
his former views of the situation. Coi.
gratulations poured in last night and
today.
Two members of President Harrison's
cabinet, Secretary Benjamin F. Tracy
and Secretary John W. Noble, sent
hearty wishes, the latter by letter. Sir
Henry Irving cabled from London:
"My most true and respectful congratu
lations to you, sir, on the splendid hon
or conferred on you."
Mr. Brice telegraphed from Newport
congratulations "from your friend, tha
enemy."
From his ranch came word from Buf
falo Bill, overland by pony relays and
thence by wire, conveying good wishes.
Russell Harrison, Lemuel Qulgg and
ex-Senator Dawes were among the many
others telegraphing eongratufotions.
Among the late messages to Major
McKinley are those of General SchofieM,
General Longstreet, General Alger,
Bishop Newman, Methodist, N. V.; Bish
op Leonard, Ohio; Bishop Arnett, Meth
odist, Ohio; Governor Cheeney, Ver
mont; Senators Lodge, Cullom and Mc-
Brlde.
Archbishop Ireland of St. Paul sent
a congratulatory message.
At 11:30 Major McKinley, accompanied
by Mr. and Mrs. Joseph H. Smith, took
his surrey for a drive to his mother's
home. He wore his heavy ulster but
toned to his chin. Groups on the walk
gave him a cheer as he passed, to which
he bowed acknowledgment.
Some of the many flowers sent in were
carried along for the aged mother and
for some of Mrs. MeKinley's sick friends.
Four bicycle riders who left Indianap
olis Tuesday night as soon as assurance
was given of MeKinley's election, ar
rived this morning. They had ridden
night and day along the muddy roads
and their uniforms were coated with
mud. The major saw them and received
a congratulatory message from a large
Indtanapolis establishment.
The information from Washington as
to favorable treasury conditions made
a most favorable impression here.
Jacob Rosenberg, president of the
Wool Men's association, today sent tho
following message to Major McKinley
from San Francisco:
"Hon. William McKinley, president
elect of the United States: The woj!
men of California send their congratu
lations."
President-elect McKinley tonight sent
the following dispatch to Mark Hanna
at New York:
CANTON, Nov. 5.
To Hon. M. A. Hanna, Waldorf hotel,
New York: Your telegraphic message
announcing the result of the election
has been received. I beg you to accept
my hearty thanks for your great ser
vices in the cause of sound money and
protection throughout the campaign
now closed and gloriously won. They
were most general and effective, and
will receive the warm approbation of
your countrymen everywhere. I will
be pleased to have you. convey to your
associates of the national committee
my high appreciation of their efficient
services. The people in their majesty,
ignoring party lines, have declared their
detestation of repudiation and dishonor,
in whatever specious guise they may be
presented. They have with the same
mighty power affirmed their devotion
to law and order and their undeviatlng
respect for justice and the courts. They
have proclaimed the unfaltering deter
mination to support and uphold the
constitutional authorities of ihe coun
•.fy, and thereby have given new vigor
and strength to our free Institutions.
They have, indeed, again consecraeed
themselves to country, and baptized the
cherished ordinances of free govern
ment with a new and holy patriotism.
The victory is not to party or section,
but of and for the whole American peo
ple. Not the least of the triumphs of
the election is the obliteration of sec
tional lines in the republic. We have
demonstrated to the world that we are
a reunited people. In purpose as In name.
We have manifested In the great causa
the spirit of fraternity and brotherhood
that should always characterize our
common and equal citizenship, and have
proved conclusively that in a country
of equal privileges and equal opportu
nity, the Insidious doctrine of hate, or
of class or sectional distinctions can
not pievail. Let us, as Americans,
straightway devote ourselves to the up
building of America; to the peace, honor
and glory of our common country. Party
dissensions should no longer divide or
rack the public mind nor the zeal or tem
per of either side deter any citizen from
patriotic devotion to the good of all.
(Signed) WILLIAM M'KINLEY.
Major McKinley this afternoon de
termined to take a trip to Cleveland
within a day or two. Mrs. McKinley ac
companies him. They go for much need
ed rest. The reports that cabinet slate
makers were busy throughout the coun
try caused much good natured comment
here today. It can be stated positively
that all cabinet comment Is purely con
jectured. Any personal inclination Ma

Major MeKinley's touching an electric
key by which the new Niagara furnace
at North Tonawanda, N. V., was put in
to operation was an Interesting event
of the afternoon. The furnaces had been
connected by wire with the McKinley
house, so that a touch of the telegraph
ic key at this end sent an electric spark
which lighted the fires of the furnace.
At exactly 2:30 oclock Major McKinley
touched the key. Word came back that
the furnace had been started with a
blaze amid the enthusiasm of 3000 spec
tators. Soon thereafter the following
message came:
"Hon. William McKinley: The new
Niagara furnace has been started by
yourself and by the principles you pre
sent upon what we hope is a career of
usefulness by the community. As this
act is typical of widespread starting of
Industry, the Tonawanda Iron and
Steel company and Its employes and as
sembled guests unite in congratulating
you on your election, and in expressing
tr.e hope and belief your administration
will bring peace and prosperity to the
whole nation."
The message was signed by William A.
Dodgers, president.
The flood of congratulatory telegrams
ana letters is unabated. These were
among those received:
Gov.-elect Tanner of Illinois—"Al
low me to congratulate you and the
country upon your triumph tn the elec
tln. To the loyalty and devotion of the
workeis upon the farm and in the shop
and factory in Illinois the Republican
party owes its deepest gratitude and
kindest acknowledgment. Our triumph
over socialism and all the organized dis
turbers of the peace and good order of
society Is marked and significant."
Hon. Benjamin F. Tracy, former sec
retary of the navy—"l send you my
warmest congratulations upon your
magnificent victory—a battle well fought
and gloriously won."
Governor Cleaves of Maine —"Please
accept my sincere congratulations upon
your triumphant election as president of
the best republic in the world."
Bishop Newman of Saratoga—"God
has saved our nation again. The Amer
ican people have been loyal to him and
you will be true to our country."
Bishop Leonard of Ohio—"Accept our
sincerest cngratulations. The god of
nations guides us."
Gen. R. A. Alger of Michigan—"The
nation has spoken! patriotism and in
tegrity have crushed repudiation, sec
tionalism and anarchy."
Other dispatches came from D. Ap
pleton, publisher. New York! Senator
Nelson, Gov. Upham, General Lew
Wallace, Senator Sewell, the Asperican
chamber of commerce at Paris, France;
J. G. Sehurman, president of Cornell
university; Hon. Joseph C. Breckin
ridge, Binger Herman and a multitude
of others.
HANNA FEELS GRATEFUL.
NEW YORK, Nov. 5. —Mark Hanna,
chairman of the Republican national
committee, arrived from Cleveland to
day and registered at the Waldorf, where
Mrs. Hanna and daughters have been
the past month.
Later in the day Mr. Hanna said to a
reporter:
"During no part of the campaign had
I any doubts of Major MeKinley's elec
tion and the success of the principle's
involvtd in the national platform."
He was eager for the latest news from
Indiana and Kentucky and several of the
other states, but declared that noth
ing could change the result.
Mr. Hanna was asked how the presi
dent-elect would stand on the tariff
question. He declined to speak for Ma
jor McKinley, bc-yond repeating a
statement made by the president-elect
before the Marquette ciuD In Chicago
in February last, in which he said lie
was not an advocate of a schedule, but
of the principle of protection.
Mr. Hanna's attention was called to
the rise in American securities abroad
since the election. He regarded this as
v very good augury and thought the re
suit would: be a permanent one.
Mr. Hanna paid a tribute to the na
tional Democrats. "They were," he
said, "a very important factor in the
election, and I don't think any man ap
preciates their services more than I do.
They worked just as hard for the same
results. There was no break in tha
line anywhere, and they were loyal from
the outset. The value of their services
cannot be overestimated? 1
Bryan and Altgeld were taken up, and
Mr. Hanna gave it as his opinion that
their final trip through Illinois and the
other middle western states had re
dounded to the advantage of the Repub
lican ticket. Mr. Hanna will remain
here a week or so, to wind up the affairs
of the national committee, and then re
turn to Ohio for a long rest.

Associated Press Special Wire
HAVANA, Nov. 6.—According to In
surgent statements the frequency of
engagements recently fought in the pro
vince of Havana are evidence of the
truth of the report that Antonio Maceo
and Maximo Gomez are directing the
forces under their command upon the
city of Havana Itself with the Intention
of laying seige to It. They still insist
that Maceo passed the military line af
ter having bombarded Artemisa. As a
matter of fact, the Spanish commander
admits that he is not aware of the where
abouts of Maceo.
There is another feature of the situa
tion which is causing the Insurgents
considerable satisfaction, and that is
the visit of the United States consul gen
eral to the United States. They Insist
in spite of all denials that the relations
between the government at Washington
and Spanish authorities are of a de
cidedly strained nature, and further,
that the interviews which are expected
to- take place shortly between Consul
general Lee, President Cleveland and
Secretary Olney will lead to important
and new departures in policy on the
part of the government. The more hot
headed of the insurgents continue main
taining that the intervention of the
United States in Cuba is certain before
long, as the Insurgents insist they have
demonstrated their ability to maintain
for more than a year past, permanent
and independent governr»nt In Cuba
and to keep their large armies in the
field in spite of the fact that Captain
general Weyler has some 250,000 troops.
They add that the Spanish are no longer
in possession of anything more than the
large cities of the island, and that with
the investment of Havana the fall of
several of those cities would be antici
pated.
INSURGENTS ADVANCE.
KEY WEST, Fla., Nov. s.—Advices
from Cuba give plainer descriptions of
the movements of the insurgents than
can be sent by cable from the. island.
Antonio Maceo has moved to the
plain country, that is to say to the south
coast of Pinar del Rio, with the inten
tion to make an attempt to pass the
trocha, protected in the meantime, as
he hopes, by the insurgents at the rear
of the trocha. He Is at present supposed
to be at Carojal. in the direction of the
swamp of Majall.
Captain-General Weyler's column is
fortifying the strategic positions taken
from the insurgents in the mountains
of Pinar del Rio, so as to form a strong
base of operations. When once these
are finished, General Weyler calculates
ho will be able to dispose of 10,000 more
men in the pursuit of Maceo, and It is
the general opinion that he will be able
to give a decisive blow.
The splendid farm houses of San Mi
guel, near Guayaraba Meleno, have been
burneel by the insurgents. They also
attacked the village of Moacua. plun
dering the stores and burning the great
er part of the houses. The troops on the
ground made a stubborn defensj\ but
were unable to drive out the insurgents
before they burned the town. The fort
only dominated a small part of the vil
lage. The insurgents left a part of their
killed in the streets when they made
their retreat. The numerous families
left homeless took refuge on the planta
tion of Dulze Nombrel.
The insurgent leader Agttlrre, and It
Is supposed siime others, are active in
the neighborhood of Gunabaza, just
across the bay from Havana, and have
made several feints to attack tht vil
lage with the intention of creating Sen
sational diversions, but the government
has several columns in pursuit of them.
CONSUL LEE ARRIVES.
NEW YORK, Nov. s.—General Fltz
hugh Lee, accompanied by his private
secretary, Thomas Jones, arrived from
Havana late last night on the Ward
line steamer Vigilancia. General Lee
said his health had been excellent from
the time he left this country last June,
In spite of reports to the contrary. He
had been treated with military courtesy
by General Weyler. whom he described
as a gentleman with pleasant manners,
but a strict disciplinarian. General Lee
declined to talk about the Cuban ques
tion, even in general terms. Captain
Mcintosh, who is in command of the
Vigilancia, had only a few words to say
in reference to the attempt of the Span
ish authorities to arrest Antonio Esca
lante on the Havana, on the outward
trip of the steamer.
"The chief of police," he said, "came
aboard when we reached Havana, and
told me that he had an anonymous let
ter from New York stating that Esca
lante was on board my ship, and that
he was a fugitive, inasmuch as he had
tried to evade the military law. I told
him that I had such a man on board,
but that I could not give him up until
I had consulted the American consul.
The chief oi police and I have been fast
friends for over twenty years and the
matter was eouducte-d vers quietly. Of
course General Lee refused to allow Es
calante to be taken from my ship, and
I landed him safely in Vera Cruz."

WASHINGTON, Nov. 5. — General
Fltzhugh Lee, consul general to Havana,
who arrived in New York today, reached
Washington this afternoon.
In reply to a direct question he said
he had not been called here by the presi
dent for the discussion of the situation
there.
When asked whether the lnsunsents

or the Spanish held the advantage in
the war, General Lee was evasive, say
ing: "First reports are heard of sue*
cess on the one sldfe and then on the
other. The war has been in progress
since Februa.y, 1895. and there Is no
prospect of Its speedy termination."
The consul general testified to the
baneful effects of this strife, which is
now desolating the Island. "Business,"
he said, "is paralyzed and the Island
Is being gradually ruined. What one
side leaves the other destroys, as In
all civil wars. There Is systematic de
strction on the vast sugar estates."
COIN AND CURRENCY.
Instructions for the Guidance of the
Assistant Treasurers.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 5. — United
States Treasurer Morgan today sent the
following letter to all assistant treasu
rers of the United States:
Referring to the Instructions commu
nicated to you by my letter of Novem
ber 23, 1895, authorizing you to receive
gold coin in exchange for paper curren
cy, I have to say that the department
desires to be Informed In advance of
any large transastlons, In order that
steps may be taken to accommodate the
depositors, if the stock of notes and sil
ver certificates available in the cash
in this office will admit of the exchange
being made.
The payment of express charges by
the government on shipments of gold
to the offices of the treasury and on
the currency returned therefor will be
discontinued. Gold coin below the least
current weight will be received as here
tofore, In exchange for paper currency
under the regulations now in force.
The short weight coin, of course, will
be received only on Its ascertained
weight.
NO LONGER SCARED
Goldbugs Are Anxious to Exchange
Coin for Currency
WASHINGTON. Nov. s.—lnformation
received at the treasury department
shows that large amounts of gold are
being offered at several sub-treasuries
in exchange for currency, the stipula
tion being made as to legal tenders. A
million dollars In gold was offered at
Boston. The sub-treasurer telegraphed
to the secretary for instructions, stat
ing that the current working force was
somewhat behind owing to the flurry,
and the payment of that amount of cur
rency would leave the sub-treasury in
conveniently short. Instructions were
issued authorizing the acceptance of
half the amount offered. At New York
the sub-treasury, ft fs understood, has
given notice that they would receive
gold today in exchange for currency.
There are about $6,000,000 assay office
checks outstanding now being depos
ited fbr currency. The demand for cur
rency, especially in small bills, in an
ticipation of an exceptionally heavy re
vival of business, is exceptionally heavy.
