Tuesday dawned cool and foggy
and gradually cleared overhead
into a right pleasant day for this
season. At an early hour teams
could be seen coming from all
directions into town bringing from
one to half a dozen people, and
long before the hour of noon the
main streets of town were thick
with men of all shades of political
complexion. They gathered in
bundles about the polling places
and around the street corners and
hotels in animated conversation
about the outcome of conditions
they were so earnestly contending
for. Some sharp and very spirited
language was indulged in by a
few, lut the great majority retained
their good nature, voted for the
candidates of their choice and -were
satisfied to let their neighbor have
the same privilegej.
No lag or hesitancy was ap
parent with the voters ard they
one and all seemed to have made
up their minds and' went about
doing their duty as sovereign citi
zens in a business maimer, ay
noon nearly a two-thirds vote had
been polled. As the afternoon
wore along quite a number of small
bets were made and considerable
excitement was gotten up. Many
old friends came together who had
not seen one another since the last
campaign and it was indeed
pleasure to witness the cordial
greetings and the many good
natured jibes launched at one an
other. There was no druukeness
or rowdyism on the streets and
nothing to mar a quiet and earnest
purpose that had brought the
p:ople together. On the registers
were more than a hundred names
which were not voted, many hav
ing gone away since last spring and
a goodly number are. in the hills
far back and could not without per
sonal inconvenience come out. The
total vote pulled, was 57?. At the
west side precinct there were 258
votes cast and at the east side there
were 317. After the polls were
closed bulletin boards were put up
and during the evening and far
into the nignt the returns were
posted. As sthe new? came over
the wire and was given out, first to
the advantage of one party and
then the other, excitement waxed
high and broke forth in loud and
Ijng chqering, and many hollored
themselves hoarse in their enthu
siasm for party success. McKinley
received 47 majority on the east
side and 17 on the west side.
As the Nugget goes, to press the
news of a terrible railroad accident
comes here from Cow Creek can
yon. Two freight trains met, head
on, killed both engineers,' one fire
man and badly injuring several
brakemen. Both engines were
badly used up and several cars
wiecked. No further details could

AN OVERWHELMING MAJOR
ITY IfOR REPUBLICANISM,
The verdict just rendered at the
polls by the American people says
that socialism shall not exist in
this country; that expansion shall
endure and that the gold standard
shall be maintained. The people
of this country saw that it was
necessary to defeat Bryanism and
the work has been done most
oroughly. The conservative voter
can ever be relied upon to espouse
the most righteous cause, and in
the battle just fought that voter
has thrown his weight with the re
publican hosts. 'I he victory is so
complete that it cannot be mis
understood. It is a just rebuke to
the party in whose name the law
less mobs committed (he dastardly
outrages upon tree speech when
they attacked and assaulted Gov
ernor Roosevelt. The nation has
arisen in loyalty and endorsed the
administration fully, and has guar
anteed to .tho people .four more
vears of prosperity - at home and
honor and respect abfoad.

Many of our democratic friends
are feeling badly and don't take
very kindly to the manner in which
they have been sat upon. Otis was
heard to' say yesterday that al
though he had lost his money
betting on Bryan he didn't much
care, for, said he, "I have got a
good job and I can earn more, for
prosperity is still with us."
