New York Tribune
NEV YORK Nov 4The Tribune this
morning comments editorially upon the
result of yesterdays election as follows
William McKinley has been elected
by an overwhelming majority and the
anxiety of all patriotic hearts gives place
to a Joy too profound for expression It
is not only a victory but one so complete
and decsive as to answer the fervent
prayers of loyal men Bryan Bryanism
Altegeldism the free silver consiparcy
arid the plots of anarchists are all buried
al bured
under an avalanche of ballots There
have been few grander moments in the
history of selfgovernment than this
Today the whole nation rises by treading
on its own mistakes and its own most
dangerous tendences and joins none
more hearty than many who contributed
to the error in the triumphant shouts
I with which the majority in this greatest
of Democratic cities hails the verdict of
I the people Saved again from a peril not
less great than that of the rebellion Itself
self the president will not fall to honor
first of all William McKinley himself
whose statesmanship and lofty patriotism
haVe been not more conspicuous than his
wise leadership But above all it is the
victory of the people who have once more
shown with startling distinctness their
capacity and therefore their right to
capaciy gov
ern themselves

CHICAGO Nov 4The Tribune in a
leader this morning sums up the situa f
tion as follows slua
The east as was expected went solidly
for McKinley The middle west soldly
pudiated Altgeldism and the silver heresy
and presents a solid front to the enemy
Illinois magnificent majority is nearly
equalled by Iowa and Wisconsin while
Minnesota and Indiana have done nobly
Kentucky and Maryland are un i
doubtedly Republican West Virginia
seems to be safe for McKinley and TEn
nessee is claimed confidently for
clamed conldently the Re
publican ticket
Little Delaware Is Republican and the I
Republican fusion ticket in Texas may
have worked the greatest wonder of all
and taken the Lone Star state from the
Democratic column This would give
McKiney at least ten more votes I Is
doubtful how the other five would vote
Bryans own state Nebraska North
and 5 South Dakota are probably Republican
can Missouri cast a majority of its votes
for Bryan The Rocky mountain states
go for silver of course California is
close with the chances favoring McKin f
ley Oregon Is true to Republicanism
Owing to the unusual large number
of doubtful states It is impossible to pre 1
diet the result with any degree of ex
I Chicago Chronicle
CHICAGO Nov 4The Chronicje says
William McKinley of Oho has been
elected presdent of the United States
Garret A Hobart of New Jersey has
been elected vicepresident of the United
StateTey have received at least 2S5 of the
447 electoral votes and complete
elector a Iomtete re
turn may show that the number is larger
i There is no element of doubt in the re 1
i sult The question fs purely one of the
size of the majority in the electoral col
lege The confederation of Populists and
Democrats has met the most sweeping de
feat in the history of American politics
I ha s suffered annihilation f
Analysis of the vote In the several
states shows that the victory of McKInley
and Hobart is due directly to the votes
of honest money Democrats Palmer and
Buckner received a vote sufficiently large
TO maintain the historic organization
upon a firm foundation but the returns J
from Democratic strongholds dEmon
strate that a large majority of Democrats
preferred to rebuke Populism by voting
for McKinley rather than to involve the
result in possible doubt by casting their
ballots for the candidates of the national
Democracy The victory has been won
by the DemocratIc party as the returns
from Democratic states like Kentucky and
Maryland demonstrate 1
So also will the socalled doubtful i
states of the middle west Every one of
them have repudiated repudiation and

The TimesHerald says William Mc
Kinley of Ohio will be the next presi
dent of the United States He has swept
the country A tidal wave has carried j
him into the White House He will have
at least 234 eectoral votes and he may
have 9 The new congress wH have a
large RepubIcan majority in the lower j
house and a working mtrjonty of both
Republican and sound money men 5n
the senate The trumoh of the cause of
sound money good government and I
order Is complete
The Republican national ticket may
have a greater majority of the electoral
colege than any presidential ticket has
received in a quarter of a century The
Republican popular majority will un
doubtedly exceed any ever cast exceeding
even that of General Grant over Mr t
Greeley in 1872 Mr McKinley has carried
every state in the great region lying past
of the Missou and north of the Ohio i
and Potomac rivers Therp IS not a i
break between the rivers and the ocean
Even Delaware joins the victorious move A
Thc Examiner 1
aminer Dem editorially reviews the
result of tho election a follows
The conservative instincts of the
American people have prevailed again
and McKinley is to be the next presi 1
dent of the United States Americans
are said to be a reckless and mercurial I
race but they often display a cautious j
aversion to change that is worthy 4 f the
Chinese This quality is not to be quar 1
reled with for it has ioved us from
many threatening dangers and taic j
ing our history as a whole has doubt
less worked more good than harm But
it is often a source of keen disappoint
ment to many ardent reformers who see
the right so clearly themselves and
yet find i impossible to Induce the
to act it It ds the
country upon i Hos the way
of the American people to endure the
ills they have until they become abso j
lutely unendurable rather than flee t
others that they know not of or even
to the bare possibility of others
I is manifest that something must be
done We cannot have a continuation
of the hard times of the pas three
years We cannot have d perpetuation
of our present crazy financial system
Mr McKinley has been introdu ecVto
us as the advance agent of prosperity
He has promised us good times and an
international agreement that win re
store the free use of silver and gold
The time is near when he must honor
the drafts he has drawn upon the fu
ture I he can do i all will be well
I not the issues now temporarily de
cided in his favor will have to come up
for review four years hence > 1
Meanwhile we congratulate Mr Mc 3
Kinley upon the opportunity that has
I come to him to make a great name j
I and do a great work I is an opportu
nity that is not without dangers k
The Cull 4
Republican treats the result of the j
election fhus I
I The people of the United States may
congratulate themselves this morning
Republicans and honest money Demo
crats may be proud of the success
I achieved by their union A glorious
victory has been won for protection
sound money and good government
I The defeat of the agitators ha been
overwhelming We shall not have a
Bryanite campaign again in this gen
I eration Once more the American peo
ple have proven themselves to be the >
safest jury in the world to which to
submit questions of justice andhonor
The victory for McKinley and Ho
bart means so much to the American
people that it is hard to express it in
a few words It means protection to
American industries and good wages to
American workingmen It means
sound money and the maintenance ofi
the credit of the nation and its pea
pie It means the enforcement of law
the upholding of the powers of the gen
eral government and the preservation
of the supreme court as a temple of in
violate justice
