TENN., FRIDAY, NOVEMBER PS, IKu. 1 '; 4 H A i 1 ill M Kind election has been if-rt svc.l rv coolly by the w ather (l.-rk. Tin: country in Mill lu re, but tho question is what is Hanna going to do with it? Cox J-'iin'Ncr may he restored, hut r" much cont'nh'iict! lias 1 t -n thu ruin of num. Who did it? Palmer and Buek jh i- find the Populist brethren. Jackson Whig. If every cloud has u "silver liit ing," perhaps silver will win in 1100. Jackson Sun. .1 OTOSON' was cheated out of t ho Presidency in 17. The party that did it was wiped out in 18(H). It is Haiti that "Money makes the mare go," but judging from thu election results in this county, the "mare" went the other way. The Republicans who are crying "fraud" in Tennessee should take a lesson from Mr. Bryan, Why can't they take their defeat like men? Notwithstanding the Republi cans spent about $200,000,000 to elect McKinley, yet a change of 21,200 votes would have elected Bryan President. Down in the Tenth district they are trying to count out enough sil ver men to elect Patterson to Con gress. This is the Republican idea of purifying our election system. It may be incidentally remarked that no man proved himself more capable of grasping the real issues involved in the campaign just end ed than Congressman-elect T. W. Sims, and in making up a list of the prominent Democrats who will take the lead in Tennessee his name will appear in the front rank. Mii. Bryan sent the following telegram to Mr. McKinley when there was no longer any doubt of the result of the election: "Sena tor Jones has just informed me that the returns indicate your election, and I hasten to extend my congrat ulations. Wo have submitted the issue to the American people, and their will is law." Mr. Bryan has received a letter from the Massachusetts Bimetallic "Union, which expresses the senti ment that the propositions that the value of money depends upon its quantity as compared with the work for it to do; that money should be stable in value and a servant of mankind and not its master, as is now the case, and that an enhanc ing monev standard is an unjust standard, are truths a majority of Americans will yet learn. "I The fact has been made more than ever in the cam V V' Ll Viviui. i paign just closed that the Populist organization in this State is domi nated by Republican sympathizers for its leaders who hold the party together simply as an annex to gain more recruits for the Republican party in Tennessee. What is true nf Tennessee is true of nearly every Southern State. But hypocrisy in politics, like everything else, must sooner or latter bo unmasked, and the oast campaign was a very fruit ful one in this respect. The effort to deliver the" rank and lile ot the Tennessee Populists over to the Re publicans was repudiated by a good majority of Populists who did not propose to be bargained off like so many sheep at so much per head,- LOCAL AND PERSONAL NEWS.
