THE POLITICAL NEWS
General Buckner to Get His
BRYAN GOES TO DENVER CITY.
Colorado People Will Receive Mr.
Bryan on Nov. 24.
A GOLD DEMOCRAT.
FRANKFORT, K'y., Nov. 7. It Is
stated on the authority of Eepubllcan
leaders In this state that Simon Bol
ivar Buckner.the Democratic nominee
for the vice-presidency will be strongly
recommended to president-elect Mc
Klnley, for one of the foreign mis
sions, probably Italy.
Yankton, S. D., Nov. 7. With
the state complete,- except Hamlin
and McPherson counties and three
unorganized counties on tho reserva
tion, Bryan has a plurality in South
Dakota of 45. Ilamlin and McPher
sou will give McKlnley a plurality.
The reservation counties are expected
to go for Bryan. It will tako an olflC'
ial canvass to designate an electoral
TALK8 TO THE EAST.
Lincoln, Neb., Nov. 7. Bryan
gave out today the following telegram,
addressed to the Eastern bimetallism:
"In the hour of defeat I send you
greetings. No words of praise can
sulllclently commend you. When I
remember that the Eastern states
sent gold delegates to both conven
tions and that nearly all Eastern
papers were against bimetallism, your
tight appears remarkably creditable,
You have shown yourselves heroes
and events will vindicate the position
you have taken."
GOES TO DENVER.
Bryan is receiving numerous tele
grams and letters in response to his
address calling upon the advocates of
silver to continue their efforts, assur
ing him of their co-operation. He
has set the 24th Inst, for a reception
to be tendered him by the people of
Louisville, Nov. 7. With olllcial
returns from 106 of 110 counties, and
unofficial returns from the remainder,
McKlnley now leads Bryan In Ken
tucky by 452 votes. Ofllcial returns
In thirteen counties are not expected
materially to alter the totals given.
Sliver Democrats are still claiming
the state, basing their claim on only
13,049 plurality for McKlnley In the
eleventh congressional district. They
give no table of vote by counties. On
the other hand Republicans based on
llgures by counties of the eleventh
district, and only two counties unoffi
cially, estimate total 14,480. Compli
cations have arisen that will likely
divide the the electoral vote on a
basis of 12 for -McKlnley and 1 for
Bryan, due to the fact that a large
number put a stencil mark opposite
the name of the first elector, -instead
of under the party device, thus caus
ing the head of each ticket to run
ahead of their colleagues. In this
way the foremost Democratic elector,
W. B. Smith, gets more votes than
the hindmost Republican elector.
Bettersion .the Bryan end says this
prevents the McKlnley menfrora win
ning and raises an Interesting point.
However, all bets are held up until
the state canvassing board has made
Nashville, Nov. 7. The guberna
torial returns received by Banner,
from all but ten counties give Taylor,
Dernocrat.majorlty 2750 over Tillman,
Republican. The counties to be heard
from gave Evans a majority of 345 in
Wilmington, Nov. 7. Although
the Republicans carried Delaware by
almost 4,000 for tho head of tho ticket,
McKlnley will receive but two of
three electors, unless tfco matter Is
taken Into tho courts, his result is
due to a factional fight In tho Repub
lican ranks. On the regular Republi
can ticket the name of one elector
appeared as "James O. tJnow," while
on the union Republican ticket was
printed the name"James G.Sbaw Sr."
SUTLER'S CIRCULAR TO THE PEOPLE.

TELLER LOOKS AHEAD.
Denver, Nov. 7. Senator Teller
arrived here yesterday. In an Inter
view ho said:
"I do not think tho Republican
party will do anything for silver In
tho coming four years. Tho declara
tion of the St. Louis platform
amouts to nothing with a limitation
put upon it. Besides that, tho men
who dictated the St. -Louis platform
are opposed to bimetallism, interna
tional or otherwise. McKlnley, it
seems to mc.has shown by his speeches
that he would bo tho advocate and
the supporter tt the gold standard, on
tho ground that It Is a better stand
ard than bimetallism. During the
four years to come I expect to bco tho
Republican party abandon all pre
tense to a desire to secure Interna
tional bimetallism, and tho contest
will be between tho gold standard
supporters and tho organszed hosts of
bimetallism. I think that four years
from now tho people will bo suffici
ently educated to understand tho dan
ger of tho gold standard, and tho
party that stands for bimetallism In
1000 by tho United States olono will
be successful. Thero Is no reason
why wo should not bo encouraged.
Our candidate was all we could desire,
and performed his part. We must
nob look backward, but forward.

Mr. McKlnley Letter to Mark Hanna Does Not Mention
Protection or Labor,
Lincoln, Neb., Noy. 0. Bryan to
day gave out the following:
To blmctalllsts of tho United States:
"Conscious that the millions ot loyal
hearts aro saddened by temporary
defeat, I beg to offer n word of hopo
and encouragement. No causo ever
had supporters more bravo and de
voted than those who havo espoused
the causo of bimetallism. They havo
fought from conviction, and have
fought with all tho zeal which con
viction Inspires. Events will prove
whether they wero right or wrong.
Having done their duty as
they saw It, they have noth
ing to regret. Tho Repub
lican candidate has been heralded as
thn advance agent of prosperity. If
his policies bring real prosperity to
tho American people those who op
posed him will slinro In that prosper
ity. If on tho other hand, his polic
ies provo an Injury to tho pcoplo gen
erally, thoso supporters, who do not
belong to tho office-holding class,or to
the privileged class,will suffer in com
mon with thoso who opposed him.
The friends of bimetallism havo not
been vanquished; they havo simply
been overcome. They believe the
gold standard is a conspiracy of
the money changers against the
welfare ot tho human race, and until
convinced of their error, they will
continue the warfare against It. The
contest has been waged this year un
der great embanussments and against
greaj, odds. But In splto of tho ef
forts of tho udmlrlstratlon and Its
supporters, in splto of the threats of
money lenders at homo and abroad, In
splto of tho coercion practiced by tho
corporations on employes, and In splto
of tho trusts and syndicates, in spite
of the enormous Republican cam
paign fnnd, and in spito of tho
Influences of the hostile dally
press, bimetallism has almost
triumphed in Its .first great fight; but
bimetallism emerges from the contest
strongor thun It was four months ago.
I desire to commend tho woik of tho
three national committees, which
havo joined In tho management of
this campaign. They have laid tho
foundation for the future success and
they will bo remembered as ploncors
when tho victory is at last secured.
No personal or political frlond need
grlcvo because of my defeat. My am
bition has been to secure immcdlato
legislation, rather than enjoy the
honors of ofllce.
Therefore defeat brings to mo no
feeling of loss. Speaking of tho wlfo
who shared my labors, as well as for
myself, I desire to say that wo have
been amply repaid for all that we
havo dono, in lovo by million1) of our
fellow-citizens so kindly expressed.
In the knowledge gained iby
penonal contact with tho peo
ple and In broadened sympathies
we find. full compensation for wha't
ever efforts we have put forth. In tho
face of tho enemy rejoicing In Its vic
tory, let tho roll bo called for tho en
gagement, and urge all friends of bi
metallism to renew their allegiance
to the cause. If wo aro right, as I
believe wo are, wo shall yet
triumph. Tho year 1000 is not far
Highest of all in Leavening Power. Latest U.b. Gov't Report.
International bimetallism, will ccaso
to deceive. Before that year arrives
thoso who havo called themselves gold
standard Democrats will becomo bf
motalllsts and unite with our party or
como Republicans and thus open en
emies. Reforo that year arrlves.trusts
will havo convinced still more of the
people that a trust Is a men
aco to private welfare and to
public safety; before that year arrives,
tho evils of tho gold staudard will be
oven moro evident than they aro now
and pcoplo will bo ready to demand
an Amorlcan financial policy for
American pcoplo and will join with
us in tho Immediate restoration of
freo and unlimited colnago or gold
and silver at tho present legal ratio
of 10 to 1, without waiting for tho aid
or consent of anyothcr nation."

McKInloy Bent tho following dispatch
to Mark nannn:
"Canton, Nov. 5. Hon. M. A.
Hanna, Waldorf hotel, New York.
Your message announcing tho result

beg you to accept my hearty thanka
for your great services in tho causo of

tho warm approbation of your coun

to have you convoy to your associates
of the national committee my high
appreciation of their olllclent services.
Tho people in their majesty, ignorj

detestation of repudiation and dis
honor, in whateverspeclous guise they
may bo presented. -They havo with
tho samo mighty power, affirmed their

undovlatlng respect for justice and

tho unfaltering determination to sup

by given new vigpr and strength to
our free institutions. They havo in

Not tho least of tho triumph or tho

strated than we area reunited peoplo in

fested in tho great causo tho spirit of
fraternity and brotherhood that
should always characterize our com
mon and equal citizenship, and havo
proven conclusively that In a country
of equal privileges and equal opportu
nity the insidious doctrine of hate, or
of class, or sectional distinctions can
not prevail. Let us, as Americans,
straightway devote ourselves to tho
upbuilding of America; to the peace,
honor and glory of our common coun
try. Party dissensions should no
longer divide or rack tho public mind,
nor the zeal or temper of either sldo
deter any citizen from patriotic de
