safely elected In the Second district
CHAIRMAN JENNINGS' POSITION.
In the Democratic county headquar
ters Jennings would concede the elec
tion of but one Republican candidate,
either national or county. He admitted
the success of Farr and the defeat of
LaBarr In the First legislative; held
Koehler's defeat by Alex. Connell In
the Second legislative district as doubt
ful, and claimed the election of Fadden
and Judge In the Fourth and Third
Legislative districts, respectively.
Mr. Jennings would not admit the de
feat of either Bryan or Merrifield.
That The Tribune figures are cor
rect is an assertion based strictly upon
the reliable returns.
During the evening In the Demo
cratic camp In Music Hall the abject
air and despondency of the county lead
ers belled their chairman's opinion.
There were gathered there Mr. Merri
field, Joseph Taylor, M. J. Kelly. D. J.
Reedy, John J. Gaffney, W. J. Burke,
Editor Richard Beamish, of the Sun
day Free Press; Editor Lynett, of the
Times; F. J. Fttxslmmons, M. F. Fad
den, John J. Durkln and others.
In reading the returns, not all of
those Indicating the Republican land
slide In nation and county were read.
That accounts for much of the en
thusiasm of the large audience that
Music Hall contained.
Up in the Central Republican club
rooms in the Price building were gath
ered the best known of the dry's Re
publicans. The returns were read and
then recorded on large sheets, which
were against the wall and In full view
of those present. The cheering never
lagged, and as early as 10 o'clock there
did not seem to be any doubt as to the
MR. CONNELL SERENADED.
A crowd of several hundred persons
marched to Mr. Connell's residence on
Clay avenue at 1 o'clock this morning
and irave him an ovation, which for
Its kind, was never before witnessed in
Scranton. It happened this way:
All evening the happiness of those in
the Central Republican club Moms had
run riot so thai when some one pro
posed a street parade the rooms were
emptied in a Jlfty. In the rooms at the
time were Prothonotary Pryor, City

On the way to Mr. Connell's house
the participants did not for a moment
bridle their noise and enthusiasm, but
cheered their way up the hill to Mr.
Connell's home which was brilliantly
Mr. Connell made his appearance on
the lawn and with head uncovered
waited fully three minutes for the
cheering to subside, the crowd mean
while cheering for McKinley, Connell,
the flag, sound money and everything
Republican. Across the roadway
blazed a bonfire made from material
which had been gathered en route from
the site of a new building.
The speech was finally made though
a sentence at a time was all Mr. Con
nell could do because of the continuous
yells of delight. He said:
I am not equal to a speech tonight, but
If I fulled to say I was not highly flut
tered by this visit I would not bo speak
iug the truth. "We have met the enemy
and they are ours" In a great buttle thut

almost more thun our flag. It has been

We wanted sound money, protection,
belter business and no more burning of

and brought the country out of the dan

overwhelming presence of American hon
esty and patriotism.
While I congratulate you for a great
ami glorious victory, It Is not on my own
account. We have redeemed national
honor and that Is due to Ood's guidance.
Mr. Connell proposed three cheers for
the flag and that started a period of
hurrahing that did not cease until
cheers had been given for Mrs. Connell
and all the principles of Republican
ism. Down the hill marched the crowd
and Into the streets of the business
district through which the parade was
continued for ovef an hour.
Republican and Democratic county
headquarters were not the only places
In Scranton where the news of the Mc
Klnley victory was received. Special
telegraph wire and telephone Instru
ments had been stretched Into many
a building and club rooms and through
these mediums thousands of expectant
citizens learned the result.

At Mr. Connell's home on Clay ave
nue thje local and national returns
were reoeived until late In the night.
National bulletins were received by a
telegraph operator who operated an in

night Mr. Connell was at his office and

street, Washington avenue and court
house lawn. At 8 o'clock It numbered
I, 500 persons and from then until far
Into night the numbers reached an
estimated total of from three to five
thousand. There were both Democrats
and Republicans there, the former in
minority but ever ready to cheer and
yell for everything and anything that
did not please the Republicans.
The news that was flashed on the
screen came by special telegraph and
telephone and gave to those who read
the messages from all over the country
as early Information as was given In
any part of the country. As the news
was displayed In letters large enough
to be read almost as far away as
Spruce street the McKinleyltes had
ample chance to exercise their lungs
and they aid It unceasingly (or hours.
