Following was summary at Chicago
headquarters Tuesday night:
Chairman Jones and othe'r members
of the Democratic executive commit
tee, Including Committeemen John
ton, of Kansas, and Campau.of Mich
igan, received returns In Chairman
Jones' olllce, Chairman Washburne.of
the Populist comtnltteo, was also pre
sent as were also Senator Teller, of
Colorado, and Tillman, of South Car
olina. The first returns were from Rutland,
Kansas.and gave 211 for Bryan and 71
for McKinley. &
The early returns frm Eastern
stated showed Republican gains in
every instance. But little interest,
however, was manifested In the re
turns admittedly Republican. The
first surprise came fromJ Baltimore
which showed a big majority for Mc
Kuiley indicating that tile state of
Maryland had gone Republlcan.Every
report from tho middle and western
states was eagerly watched and much
gratification was expressed at the
first report from Mlchigan.i This was
Gratolt county, giving Bryan 800 plu
rality. This county pave Harrison &
plurality of 1,376 In 1892.
"We have no reason to loso heart,"
said Chairman Jones after reading
returns from New York and other
eastern states, "all this early btuff is
what we have expected."
The first really bad news Ivgan

states south of the "line." Enrlv re
turns from both Tennessee and Ken
tucky siiowcd large Republican gains

President Stevenson, gave McKinley
200 plurality. Tho returns from Mich
igan art more encouraging. At 8:30
p. m. Chairman Campau claimed that
state by 25,000.
