fully, to saluto tho prcsldont and congress
of tbs United States and to express senti

ple" Two committees worn appointed, one on
credentials and tha other on rules. Prob
ably several days will elapse before the
permanent organization Is effected.

kose house No. 3, a halt dozen blocks from
bis place of residence ou II street Tho
seremony was witnessed by halt a hundred
residents who wero congregated In the hose

who followed Mr. Ilryan from tho railroad
station. Before going to tho voting place
Mr. Bryan repaired to tho city ball, where
bo flllod out a certificate stating that ho

from the city. Tho clerk at the city hall
Who supplied him with a certificate also
dlsponscd to all who would recetvn them
yellow badges bearing tho Inscription: "I
am a republican," and ho seemed qulto ns
much occupied with ono duty as the other.
Thero was quite a procession from tho
city ball to tho voting place, consisting of
sltlzons and newspaper men In carriages
and a number of Mr. Bryan's neighbors on
toot, who escorted him to tho voting place.
He reached tho Are company's house
bout 11 o'clock and Immediately proceeded
to the rear of tho building, where tho vot
ing corner was roped off from the re
mainder of the house. Ho was, of course,
recognized by almost every one present and
general handshaking ensued. Two free
boldors of his ward, ono a republican and
the other a democrat, volunteered to stand
tor him, and they, us well ns Mr. Bryan,
were ewaru as to thn facts In the cum.
Tbo presidential candidate was granted no
exemption by tho Judge of election, Hov.
lr Ludden, n Lutheran minister of repub
lican proclivities. Mr, Bryan was required
to give his place of residence, tho stato
Where ho was born and also Inform tho offl
lals as to how long he had lived In the
precinct, the wnrd and tha state. Having
obtained this Information, Mr. Ludden
asked Mr. Bryan, in accordance with the
law of tho state, whether he wished to sta.o
the name of tho party with which he affil
iated. To this Mr. Bryan promptly re
ponded: "The democratic party," and
with a smile ho added: "With friendly
feelings toward two others." Aftor this
Mr. Bryan took the ballot which was
banded blm, entered a booth und prepared
It. Emerging from tho booth, he
dropped tbo ballot Into tho tin box pre
pared for that purpose und the vote was
given tbo number 1S3, As ho was voting

to the friends assembled. Standing on his
front porch, he said:
"Ocntlcraen, I want to thank you for tho
loyalty you have shown, not only In this
campaign, but In tho campaigns which have
preceded It, and I hope that within twelve
hours we may bo able to meet again and
rejoice over a victory. W'o opened this
campaign at Kansas City by Indorsing tho
Declaration of Independence,, written by
Thomas Jefferson. I want to close this cam
paign by reading an extract from a speech
mado by Abraham Lincoln, for, In this cam
paign wc bavo been quoting tho Bpceches
of Lincoln and Invoking his authority, as
Lincoln, In his first campaign, quoted from
the utterances of Jefferson and Invoked his
" 'Mauy freo countries bavo lost their

shall, may It be my .proudest plume, not
that I was the last to desert her, but that
I never deserted her.'
"I will add that I think we shall suc

shall have the proud consolation of saying
to our conscience and to the departed shade
of our country's freedom that tho course ap
proved by our Judgment and adored by our
hearts. In disaster, In change. In torture,
In death, wo never faltered In defending."
The brief address was received with cheers
and tho party took Its leave, giving Mr,
Bryan a few hours with hU family. He
repaired to his home and was sound asleep

brnaknn'a Defeat.
LINCOLN, Nov. 6. Mr. Bryan received
election returns at his residence In this
city. Ills Ih.uso was fairly overrun by
newspaper men and telegraph operators.
Not only was tho lit st floor of tho house
largely given up to them, but two of tho
rooniB In tho second story also. Tour
telegraph wires ran to tho house. Mr.
Bryan had with him his brother, CharlcB
Bryau; his former law partner, ex-3tato
Senator Talbot; National Committeeman
L'ahlman and Attorney Schmidt. Mrs.Ilryan
had as companions a cousin, Mrs. Rogers,
and Mrs. Dahlman.
Mr. Bryan took his dinner a little after
6 o'clock and later Hpcnt a fow minutes
In conversation with tho newspaper men,
referring to tho bulletins received and
nsklng some questions about different
states, but without venturing any opinion
upon tho figures. Tho first 'bulletin In
was the one announcing that Poughkeepslc,
N. Y had given McKlnley a majority of
1,327, and this was quickly followed by
another bulletin to tho effect that Elmlra
had gone In Mr. Bryan's favor to tho ex
tent of 1,722 majority. When shown this
message ho simply remarked that it was
Tho othor bulletins from Now York camo
In thick and fast aftor that and while Mr.
Bryan made no comment, thero was a feel
ing among thoso present that he was disap
pointed in the returns from New ork
City and Brooklyn. His reports up to the
last concerning thoso cities had been en1
couragtng and his own observations had
led him to bnltevo that thero would be a
larger Increase in his vote, rather than a
Iohh. On the other hand, there was con
siderable encouragement from tho Interior
of Now York stnte, and especially gratify
ing was a message from National Commit
teeman Mack, saying that Buffalo had gone
republican by a majority of only about
3,000, ngalnst a majority of 12,000 four years
ngo. Coming closely upon tho heels of tho
Buffalo dispatch was ono from a friend
In Boston announcing that city to have
gono for Bryan by a majority of 7,000, as
against 17,000 for McKlnley four years ago.
Tha early dispatches Indicated tho loss
of Marylund and this oIbo was a disap
pointment, for It had been believed that
that state was fairly safo for tho demo
cratic ticket.
After recolvlng the earlier returns In
his library, In tho midst of his friends, Mr.
Bryan retired to his private apartments,
which were connected with thb outstdo
world by a special wire. Both he and Mrs.
Bryan were In cheerful mood and n person
unacquainted with the clrcumstnnceB would
never have dreamed from their demeanor
that thoy were at this tlmo the center of
national lntorest.
At 8 o'clock, when tbo newspaper men
congregated a Mr. Bryan's houso and
sought to secure a statement from him,
they were told that ho bad Just gono to
sleep and could not bo disturbed. When
ho retired to his own room ho glanced
over tho returns with apparent Interest
and then, expressing a desire to make up
some of tho rest ho had lost In tho last
few weeks, lay down and was asleep In
Iqss than five minutes. Ho had slept an
hour In the afternoon, after which he went
for a horseback ride to his farm. He did
not, however, feel fully recuperated and
therefore sought additional rest, thuB man
ifesting probably less concern than hun
dreds of thousands of his followers.
