I in regard to the future policy of the al
f lied silver forces In this connection
Mr Washburn said to a reporter of
the United Associated Presses
As a result of the political campaign
we find victory in defeat The fact that
so much was accomplished in so short
t a time with the limited means in
spires the belief that we can win four
years hence We were confronted with
a united army and an unparalleled
campaign fund while our own forces
were divided with secret foes in our
midst as well as fusion difficulties
and the amalgamation of opposing
forces to contend with
Mr Bryan made the greatest cam I
paign recorded in political history and
stands unrivalled as a leader Revolu
tions never go backward and the mo
mentum of this campaign will be con I
tinued by the allied silver forces I
I believe this election will result in
separating the golci l chaff from the sil
ver wheat and force the traitors in
the silver ranks to unite with the Re
publicans where they belong It is
worth all our efforts to shake off these I
barnacles and start afresh with re I
newed hope In order that all the ele
ments constituting the movement the I
silver Republicans the silver Demo I
crats and the Populists may be sat
t isfied it may become necessary to
merge all these forces info one great j
army under a new name It is rarely
that a new great issue succeeds under
an old party name
We begin the congressional fight of
1898 and the presidential fight of 1900 I
tomorrow We shall have a confer
ence of our national leaders within a
short time when the plans of the con I
test and the policy of the future may
be determined upon Let no one be
lieve that silver is defeated The move
ment is simply purified and regener
a + pd In a new form with new nope
and new vigor and with the goldbug
traitors eliminated from the movement
A e emerge from this contest stronger
than ever to march forward to the vic
tory which awaits us I

able column of 264 electoral votes has
been secured for McKinley and Ho
bart This column may be increased
by the votes from Kentucky outh Da
kota and Warning which are still in
doubt and claimed for both McKinley
and Bryan
The popular majority for McKinley
will be about 1000000 votes It now ex
ceeds 900000 and can scarcely be re
duced more than 30000 by the aggre
gated pluralities for Bryan from all
the states in doubt
In the senate the Republicans are as
sured of 46 members or a majorlty of
two The majority may be increased
to four by the electionOf a Republican
from Kentucky
According to the latest returns the
Republicans wan aave in the house of
representatives 210 members sound
money Democrats 1 Democrats 120
Popullsts 25 giving a Republican ma
jority of 65

vote of that state to McKinley but it

I of the fact until today

I the following statement was given to
the ress
The result of the presidential elec
tion is apparently no longer in doubt
I I has been one of the closest contests
that the people have been called t n to
determine in recent years We have
claimed the election on our advices
from states that were admittedly in
j doubt in which we knew there had
I I been many frauds and from which
I there were evidences of tampering
with the returns I seems now to be
apparent that Mr Bryan after
making the most brilliant campaign in
the history of our country has carried
most of the states claimed to be doubt
ful but has not carried enough to se
cure his success in the electoral col
j I lege Bryan electors have been chosen
i 1 in all the states south of the Potomac
1 and Ohio except West Virginia and
all those west of the Missouri except
i California and Oregon He has 190
electoral votes and this number may I
be increased by final returns from j
states yet in question j
Thus the remarkable campaign i
closes with the election of William Mc
Kinley The result was brought about
by every kind of coercion and intimi
dation the part of the
on money power I
including threats of lockouts and dis i
missals and impending starvation by
the employment of by far the largest i
campaign fund ever used in this coun
try and by the subordination of a
large per cent of the American press
The presidentelect and his party are
under pledge to the American neoole I
to continue the gold standard and by I
its operation to restore prosperity toS
the country As chief executive Mr j i
McKinley will have the cordial sun Ii
port of the millions of patriotic Amer
icans who have cast their votes for 1
William Jennings Bryan They bow to S
the majesty of the office and abide by
the result with none of the mutterings I
that would have come from the money i i
power had i been unsuccessful They i
are confident the gold standard cannot j
give the promised prosperity but will
gladly welcome it if it comes Thev
will continue the great struggle for the i p
uplifting of humanity and to the main I
tenance of the dignity of our countrv
in the establishment of an American
monetary system And the Democratic I
party aided by its present allies will i
still uplift the bimetallic standard and I

Ill wait to hear from Senator Jones
before saying anything
Then he put on a velvet house jacket
and began chatting pleasantly with
some personal friends whowere with r
him in the parlor There was nothing
of the pathetic in the scene Mr
Bryan had not clung to the hopes held
out to him by some of his enthusiastic
followers and was prepared for the

writing to tell a humorous story
apropos of a remark made by one of
those about him When he had finished
he handed the dispatch to a messen

story There appeared to be nothing
forced about the pleasant manner of
the young political leader He seemed
actually happy that the strain was
over He told the representative of
the United Associated Presses in the
conversation that ensued that tonight
he would prepare a statement to be
issued to the bimetallists of the coun

say anything about the result of the

cause of bimetallism he responded
