HOW THCY VOTED IN OCNTON COUNTY. The result of the ( lection lu ll in the Unitrvl States Tuesday is Htill in doubt. Tim Democratic leaders nro positive of Mr. lryrmH i ! tion, and Mr. Washburn, chairman of tho People's party, thinks Mr. Bryan is surely elected and strong, ly suspects frau.l. Tho following statement of tho Presidential hit nation was issued by Chairman Janus K. Jones, of tho Chicago headquarters Demo cifttic National Committee, yester day morning: "I lmvo counted, from the begin ning, n.s tho States uon which we rolied for Mr. Bryan's election the sixteen Southern States' votrs and tho States west of Missouri lliver, with a total of '217. I have hoped ' that we would carry Indiana, Mich igan and Minnesota. I be' 'eve that wo have carried every Southern State, except Maryland, and that wo have carried all of the Western States heretofore counted on, which leaves us, not counting Delaware, which I think wo have carried, and ' which I havo not heretofore calcu lated on, 209 votes. One vote we certainly have in Delaware, and probably three. 13ut counting only ono vote, which we have beyond a . doubt, it leaves necessary to a choice li votes. Either Michigan or In diana would give us those 14 votes. , Tho reports received by us from . these States give encouragement, and lends us to believe that while both States aro close, we havo the better chance to win, and that wo may probably carry both.' " There can be scarcely a doubt of . our getting. Indiana.- Under these circumstances, it seems to me that we are entirely justified in claiming the election of Mr. Bryan, which I do, and I believe that the temper of the people is such that they will not allow their choice to be defeated by tricks and frauds. Tho statements made in the city papers to-day that I have given up the contest and admitted that Mr. Bryan is defeated, indicate a delib erate purpose on the part of the papers, as well as the Republican managers, to create false impres sions in the minds of the people, and to lead them to believe that Mr. KcKinley's election is accom plished and acquiesced in. " I have not, for a moment, ac quiesced in Mr. JVlcKinley's elec tion, and will not until there is a material change from existing con ditions. "As I believe Indiana, and prob ably Michigan, have voted for Mr. Bryan, and if either has, he is cer tainly elected. "James K. Jones." r.i-it Sri Ul4 i Tllilll 1 lllltlll link SlUll Si-WMIl IllUlltll NtM'ic l itxim prt'olint.... Urinrlit pli'ttltit.. Tfiilli l.U'Vimih Twiirth 1 iilrlc"'Uth h'utirtct'titti Tuiul I'll ""!' nt.

Just before going to press a tel egram has been received to the effect that Mr. Bryan has carried Indiana and this, insures his eleo tion. The Bepublicans show marked ?ains in East Tennessee, but this has urobably been more than dis sipa'ted by increased Democratic majorities in Middle and, West len nessee. lvulonre is accumulating show ing that wholesale frauds have been perpetrated by the Bepublicans in nearly every isime in mo wuiuu. The situation recalls the i'residen tial steal in 1876.. , OUR DESTINY. The agony of tho campaign is over, and however the renult of the long drawn out contest may be, all conditions of society .must experi ence tho enlivening spirit of activ ity that will come with tho general restoration of confidence and cer- ainty. The natural inclination of the public mind will now turn toward. the every day channels of life, ami he same causes will, as heretofere, produce the same effect Industry and frugality will be the mark of reward according to merit. The success of the Democratic icket, with tho advantages of a more equitable system of finance, as has been promised the people, will uring about the loosening of the binding cords of monopoly that have circumscribed the prosperity and well-being of labor, but it will take from Tabor few of the cares arid responsibilities. Man iiust still have something to exchange for the wealth that will come with the new order of things. Should the die fall in another way, our conditions will be practi cally unchanged for the present. By an industrious, honest effort w?e may be able to keep the wolf from the door at least until another effort can be made to shake off the thrall dom of the unequal conditions made by legislation adverse to the inter ests of the massess of the people. In the meantime the bitterness engendered by the most remarka ble campaign in the history of our Government should be buried with the past, and every citizen should remember that our interests are one in common, and the further devel opment of this great country is par amount to the success of any party, The young men of the town are again agitating the question of or ganizing a brass band. The move ment has the unqualified endorse ment of The Chkonicle, and we want to urge the boys to push the matter and organize a good band, for we are inclined to the belief that this is the only way Benton County will be represented at the Tennes see Centennial next spring-' The electoral vote of Tennessee will go to Bryan and Sewall, but the latest returns indicate that the election for governor may be close, Democratic gains were, made all over the State.

Tho uuterrified Democracy of old Benton is still unconquerable. Chairman Jones concedes noth ing and is confident that Bryan has been elected. According to Chairman Jones Michigan or Indiana will decide the fate of the Presidency. Let us hope, even if the cloud loes seem dark above us now. The gallant Bryan still has a chance. If yo are defeated, the campaign of Bryan will go down in history. It is the grandest battle on record. A handsome majority for W. J. Bryan emphasizes tho sentiments of the Democracy of old Benton. And have you heard from Carroll County! The Democratic ticket shows a gain of more than 200 as compared with the vote of 1892. The Democratic State Commit tee estimates Bryan's majority in Tennessee at 30,000 and places the mimimum figure for Bob Taylor's majority at 15,000. The fifth district polled 399 votes, a gain of 43 compared with the vote cast in the August election. This is a gain of 35 over the vote of 1892. The gain in tho county is about 200. Eight Democrats, all silver men, and two Republicans will represent Tennessee in the next House of Congress. This is a gain of three Congressmen, counting Josiah Pat terson with the opposition. McDowell, Buchanan & Co. could not deliver the goods just as we predicted. The returns received up. to Wednesday iudicate that a large majority of Populists voted for the Bryan and Sewall electors. . Hons. T. W. Sims, E. W. Carm ack, J: W. Gaines, II. A. Pierce, and John A. Moore are the new Demo cratic members-elect to Congress. Hons. Benton McMillin, James D. Richardson and N. N. Cox were re elected by handsome majorities, The complexion of the next gen eral assembly is foreshadowed by the American as follows: Of the 33 members in the senate, 23 are Democrats, 8 Republicans and 2 in doubt. Of the 79 members of the house, 61 are Democrats, 20 are Republicans and 15 are not indi cated with any accuracy. In the last session the Democratic major ity on joint ballot was 50, and the indications are this majority will be increased to GO this time. LOCAL AND PERSONAL NEWS.
