CHICAGO Nov 4 Reports circu
lated shortly after 6 oclock tonight
that I Bryan had been elected
caused considerable excitement in Chi
cago and in many places large crowds
gathered At the Auditorium 300 or
400 people assembled early and prepar
ations were made to parade the down
town streets A verbal permit was
given the silver men to march by
Chief of Police Badenoch before he
went home to dinner and on this the
parade was organized Just about the I
time the start was to have been made
someone telephoned a message to the I
central police station the purport o
which cannot be learned from the
sergeant who received It nor is the
senders name known In about an
hour Chief of Police Badenoch came
in hastily and in a short time Mayor
Swift came to the city hall in response
to a telegram I developed later that
the chief had called out the entire po
lice force of the city and a few min
utes after his arrival at the city hal I
he dispatched three wagonloads of de
tectives to the Auditorium Here the j
men were placed outside the doors of
the hotel and its annex to prevent any
trouble that might arise Two or I
three hundred men were held in readi
ness at the central station to answer
any cal that might be made but their I
services were not required On orders
S two officers tore down some poster in
front ot the ofllce of the Dispatch the 1
free silver afternoon paper and dis
persed a large crowd collected there
The police refused to say who sent in
the request for extra officers I

Sonic Exciting Scenes Enacted In
Chicago Yesterday Jones Asser
CHICAGO Nov Anxiety and de
termination and a hostile feeling to
ward their political opponents per
J vaded the campaign headquarters of
the Democratic party all day and es
pecially tonight when the rank and
file in Chicago were aroused to make a
strt t demonstration
Chairman Jones his fellow members
of th < national committee and every
subordinate remaining on duty at the
Auditorium annex not only cried fraud
all lay but toward evening when
fuller returns from the western states
were waited for In vain they united
in seriously claiming the election of
William J Bryan In the absence of
official news from county chairmen
Senator Jones had to rely on informa
tion from private sources
Tonight he claimed as certain for
Bryan 210 electoral votes and said only
one state Michigan or Indiana was
S needed to make the silver Democracy i
triumphant The Republican claim of I
40000 majority in Indiana had been re I
duced by Executive Ccmmitteeman II
Durbin to SOOOO and the Democratic
claim fiS that Indiana would show a I
majority of uOOO for Bryan On the I
Michigan question I Senator Alward of
the Republican i state committee I wired I i I
that McKInleys majority would reach
50000 and 10 out of 12 Republican con
gressmen were elected Linton and I
Mills being defeated Against this I
claim Chairman Campau of the Demo I
cratlc national committee made this
assertion Gross frauds have been I
perpetrated in the upper peninsula of
I lichigan Take Houghton county as i
an example I gave 715 majority for j
Harrison The Republicans claim a j
majority there of 4100 I is absurd I i
With a fair count we will show Mich j I
igan has gone for Bryan by a small I
majority The returns are being held j I
back for ome reason and It seems to j i
me for purposes of manipulation We j I I
suspect an attempt to repeat the crime I I
of 1S7C but we are on guard now and
I nptrated the people will not alo gard to be per I I
I Senator Jones considered the situ
ation serious enough to call the imme
7 diate attendance of absent national
n committeemen with whom he has ad
vised during the campaign He sent a
i telegram to Governor Stone at Jeffer
son City Mo asking him to come at
once to Chicago The senator was
closeted with Governor Altgeld tonight
for ome time The governor denounced
the alleged manipulation of returns as
received and said i should be protested
against Mr Jones said to a rcnorter
S of the United Associated Presses I i
Claimed before the election every one i
of the southern states which give 156
v otes I also claimed all the states west j I
S of the Missouri river which jrfve Cl I
electoral votes making a total of 217 i
I have honed that Michigan Indiana
and Minnesota would go for Mr Bryan I i
I believe we have carried every south i
cm and every western state heretofore j
counted on not including Delaware
and probably all three which leaves us
1 votes to eject Mr Bryan Either
i Michigan or Indiana will give us these I
s votes Reports from each of these I
i states show that we have probably I
carried Indiana and have the best
S chance to win both We cannot tell
t yet whether no will win either I
W e are perfectly justified in clam
S ing the ejection of Mr Bryan and I be
lieve the temper of the people Is such
that they will not submit to be be ten
by tricks and fraud The statements
made in the papers that I have given
up the fight and conceded McKInleys
election show a deliberate attempt to
create a false public sentiment to
make the people believe McKinleys
election Is accomplished and acquiesced
in I have not for a moment acquiesced
In his election and will not until ma
terial returns change the present situ
ation On the present showing I claim
Mr Bryans election as I believe Indi
ana and probably Michigan have been
I carried for Bryan and if either has
I Mr Bryan is elected

Chairman Jones of the Democratic

Bryan Iowas later returns are our I I i

right California and Oregon have gone

Mr Jones statement is not borne
out by the returns received up to this
Chnirmnn Payne CJnljiis r Yotes
encouraging to the Democrats
CHICAGO Nov Telegrams re
ceived this afternoon by Acting Chair
man Payne of the Republican national
I committee from the disputed states
give the committee assurance to claim
I 277 electoral votes sure for McKinley
The estimates sent by state chairmen
I were a follows
South Dakota 3500 Kentucky 5000
West Virginia 14000 Oregon 3500
California CCOO to 9000 Mr Payne
j characterized as bucombe the claim of
Indiana Democrats that the state had
given 5000 majority for Bryan Mr
I Payne admitted the Republicans would
lose a United States senator in Washington
At the Democratic national head
quarters the messages received from
state chairmen and others during the
I afternoon were more encouraging than
at any time since the returns began to
come in A telegram from Parkers
I burg W Va read I have no fear
I about West Virginia
State Chairman Martin of Indiana
wired that returns from the rural dis
I tricts of that state show a net Demo
cratic gain over 1S92
I North Dakota sent word that the
I j j state had gone for Bryan by 2000
National Committeeman Powers of
I I Utah telegraphed that the Democratic
i j majority in Utah had increased to
Word came from the Pacific coast
that 1553 precincts in California in
eluding San Francisco gave McKin
ley 1112S8 Bran 10929
Our people say Kentucky is all
right was the answer of Chairman
Jones to repeated Inquiries as to the
foundation for the t lcan claim
that the state had gone for McKinley
The Independent Gold Standard
Democracy the official title of the
Palmer and Buckner party In this
state has failed to poll its 2 per cent
of the total vote In Illinois In conse
quence it fails below the limit fixed
by law and can never under IL pres
ent organization take part In any
state or municipal election This was
one of the main objects of the leaders
in this city and state in making such
an aggressive fight and putting up
local congressional and state tickets
It Is believed in political circles that
the gold Democrats will fuse with Re
publicans in future elections
Colonel Perry S Heath of the Re
publican national headquarters staff j
commenting on the result of the legis
lative elections In the states where
new senators would probably be lie
publicans said to a reporter for the
United Associated Presses
We will have a sound money majority
jority in the lower house of congress
beyond cavil or doubt to support Mc
Kinley There will be a good clean
j majority of sound money senators
Including sound money Democrats
who will support the Republicans in
stopping and fiat money or similar legislation
islation There will only be a few silver
ver Republican senators who will be 1
against the administration of tariff I
legislation We will also have a ma I
jority for a McKinley tariff bill al
though I may be probable that we will I i i
I not have a Republican sound money i i
majority in the senate There will i I
probably be no attempt to reenact the I
McKinley tariff bill of 1S90 I doubt
If uch senators a Pettigrew Teller
and Dubois would vote against the I
Republican party on a tariff measure
Senator Wilson of Washington told
me when here recently that the Re
publicans might lose the state for gold I
but would elect enough silver men of
the legislature to guarantee a successor
sor to Senator Squire who would be a I
McKinley tariff supporter although for
vote cast in the state from the present I
outlook will be much leas than In Aug
ust this year or In November 1S92 The
ticket Is s long that but few boxes
I I nave been received I and thecounting is
I slow and tedious Bryan will have the
state but by greatly reduced major
ity Clark sound money candidate
I for congress In theSecond district and
Comer in the Third are mailing strong
runs with even chances of success
I committee of Indiana telephoned 65
Indiana polling precincts heard from
show an average Republican gain of 1
to a precinct Fifteen country precincts
i i heard from show a Democratic gain
I of about 40 to each precinct I believe
the Democrats have carrUd the state
I do not expect returns from our dis
tricts until late I
Governor Matthews concurred In this

merely serve to emphasise what was

plurality will not be sweeping but
each belated precinct which comes in

not concede defeat but It will take a
landslide in all the remote quarters of
the state to change the tide The Rc
publican defection seems to have been
largest in the cities and towns where

Best estimates place the majority for

be slightly larger Holcomb fusion

slightly ahead of the electoral ticket

CHICAGO Nov 4The following
statement of the presidential situation
was issued tonight by Chairman Wash
burn of the Chicago headquarters Peo
ples party conrmittep
To the voters of the United States
Our facilities for receiving the elec
tion returns are equal to any We know
from private advices and the returns
up to date that McKinley is not elected
On the other hand the latest returns
justify our claim that Mr Bryan is
elected I I one of the peculiarities
of Rfuhlca enterprise that they al
ways claim everything in sight d few
hours after election
In 1S76 as well a in 1SS4 I was not
known for three or four days which
candidate had won Although the
early returns indicated Republican suc
cess Democratic success followed
Again four years ago the early returns
favored Harrisons election while the
subsequent returns elected Cleveland
This year the early returns favored
McKinley because they came from th
eastern and middle states and from tre
cities of other states while the returns
from the south and west were with
held so as to stampede public sent
ment that McKinley was elected
whether he was or not and thus create
I c sentiment In advance which would
operate to hlsylvantaie in case the
election was contestHir wJille on the
t other hand had the first returns an
nounced Bryans cess and a contest
resulted there would be an uprising of
the people through fear of a repetition
t of the Tllden episode
We have positive evidence that the
I Republican national committee have
wired their state committees to claim
certain states which ae in doubt fear
I I ing that the subsequent returns might
i indicate Bryans election We shall
i soon vigorously press the question viz
r I it Is not for the purpo of manipu
lating them why are they held back
I We want the Amercan people to be
j patient and wait for the official returns
and pay no attention to these reports
1 < ° nt onz bv mrmimlatinsr committees
We also feel justified In assuring the
j people that if Bryan is elected he will
I be seated The will of the people wilt
1 never again b defeated through the
manipulation of returning boards 0 >
capture the presidency The political
I j peated crme of SI will ba resisted if r
The returns this evening indicate
that Mr Bryan will carry all of th
states wet of the Missouri river and
south of the Ohio and Potomac which
without Maryland and Delaware make
I 203 votes Delaware is stIll in doubt
but we are sure of one electoral vote
which makes 210 Add to ths Michigan
14 votes or Indiana 15 votes ani K Ii
sures Bryans election The returns
from both of these states now sh w
positive galnr for Bryan in all of the
suburban districts The claims of the
Republicans were based upon the re
ports of the cUes Now that w > are
hearing from the country the sltua
tion is rapidly changing The Repub
Means are becoming alarmed and the
