made by Chairman M A Hanna to a
United Associated Presses representa
tve at 1010 pm in the parlors of the
Union flub Yes the result has ex
ceeded even my most sanguine expec
tations continued Mr Hanna I had
thought we might not carry Kentucky
enrl Tennessee but those states have
fallen in + a line nobly On the Pacific
coast we have rolled UD magnificent
Republican majorities We have Ii
achieved a signal victory in Nebraska
What is the ause of this over
whelming majority triumph
Why this campaign has set the peo
ple to thinking and the result is a j I
healthy desire for a change of condi I
tions which will bring renewed
i015 wi pros
perity to the industrial classes The
the free trade and free silver planks in
the Democratic platform became hope
lessly entangled with each other
entngled wih and
this prevented clear
a cear understanding
of these issues even by their earnest
supporters The vital issues of this
campaign have been so cogently and
logically pointed out by the Republican
speakers tat the judgment of the
masses cannot go far amiss
What is the significance of the re I
My dear sir i can have but one
significance I means the triumphant
vii aication of Republican
11 cHcton Republcan principles
and an honest currency
