Chairman Jones Endimors to Create
Disturbance at Chicago Much
Chicago. Nov. 4. Anarchy, determin
ation and a hostile feeling towards
their political -opponents pervaded
Democratic bcaduurters tonight when
the runk and tile In Chii-ugu were
aroused to make a street demonstra
tion. Chairman Jones and his fellow
members of the national coiniiiitteeand
every subordinate remaining on duty
nt the Auditorium annex not only cried
fraud ull day but towards evening
when fuller returns from the western
states were awaited In vain, they united
in seriously claiming the election of
William J. Uryan. Senator Jones to
night claimed us certain fur Hrvnn 210
electoral votes and said only one State,
Michigan or Indiana, was needed to
make the silver Democracy triumph
ant. He considered the situation serious
enough from a Democratic point of
view to cull for the immediate altend
anceof assistant national coimnillee
men'with whom he has advised during
the campaign. He sent a telegram to
Governor Stone at Jefferson City, Mo.,
asking him to come at once to Chicago.
The senator was closeted Willi Gov.
Altgeld tonight for some time. The
governor denounced the alleged manip
ulation of returns as nu outrage and
said it should be protested against.
Chairman Jones said to the reporter
for the I'niletl Associated Presses:
"I claimed before the election every
one of the Southern states which gives
156 votes. 1 also claimed all the states
west of the Missouri river, which give
61 electoral votes, making a total of
217. I have hoped that Michigan, In
diana and Minnesota would go for
Uryan. 1 believe we have carried every
Southern and Western state hereto
fore counted on, not Including Dela
ware. This makes a total of 209 votes.
One vote we have in Delaware and
probably all three which leaves us 14
votes to get to elect Mr. Bryan. Kither
'Michigan or Indiana will give us these,
votes. Reports from each of these
states show that we have probably car
ried Indiana and have the best chance
to win both. I cannot tell yet whether
we will win either. We are perfectly
justified In claiming the election of Mr.
Bryan and 1 believe the temper of the
people is such that they will not sub
mit to being beaten by tricks and
fraud. The statements made In the
papers that I have given up the fight
and conceded to McKinley's election
shows a deliberate attempt to create
a false public sentiment; to make the
people believe McKinley's election is
accomplished and acquiesced In. 1
have not (or a moment acquiesced In
his election and will not until material
returns change the present situation,
on the present showing I claim Mr.
Bryan's election as I believe Indiana
and probably Michigan hnve been car
ried ar Bryan and if either has, Mr.
Bryan is elected."
The Political Alliliulion of the Neil
Canton, Nov. 4. Joseph P. Smith, who
is one of Major McKinley's closest
political friends nnd who has been a
member of the McKlnley household dur
ing the campaign, has been doing some
figuring on the senate. He says that
from the best Information at hand, it
appears that the senate, of the I'nited
States after March 4th next will consist
of 4s sound money Republicans and
Democrats and 41 silver Democrats and
This grouping will not apply to the
tariff and some other questions which
does not Indicate the number of sup
porters that Major McKinley's admin
istration will have on these Issues. A
number of sound money Democrats will
oppose the Republican tariff policy and
probably three of the silver Republi
cans will be in harmony with it.
MARK HANNA'S CLAIMS.

Mark Hanna said: "The country re
turns from Tennessee', Kentucky and
North Carolina make those states
doubtful. I am still sure of North Caro

The final count will give McKlnley no
less thun 277 electoral votes.

BILLY BRYAN'S NERVE
Does Not Seem to Worry Over Defeat.
Mrs. Bryan U Also Cheerful.
Lincoln, Neb., Nov. 4. The nerve of
Bryan under the strain of last night
and today is wonderful. He slept like
a top between midnight and breakfast
time. His face exhibited some signs of
fatigue this morning, but his eye was
clear, not a sign of nervousness s flow
ing while talking to a few of the news
paper men who have been with him in
his tour through the states. Occasion
ally a political supporter who did not
know of the understanding among Mr.
Bryan's friends and neighbors not to
disturb him at this time, called at the
house and-were cordially but quietly
received. Mr, Bryan did not appeal
In the least despondent as he lay on a
lounge In his parlor. He read bulletins
and the messages carefully and com
mented on them Interestingly.
Like her husband Mrs. Bryan looked
cheerful. She attended to her house
hold duties as though noth'ng unusual
was happening, and superintended the
opening of the bundles of souvenirs of
the campaign that came by mail and
express. One supporter who had pre
sumably given up hope, sent congratu
lations on "your magnificent fight,"
and added that "It was only four years
from Bull Run to Appomattox," caus
ing Mr. Bryan a good laugh.
BRYAN HAS HOPES.
He (.ives an Evasive Auswcr to Tele

Lincoln, Neb., Nov. 4. Mr. Bryan has
received a number of telegrams asking
for definite Information In regard to the
election and has given out the following

JONES' PRESENT CLAIMS.
The National Chairman Is Still Confi
dent That Bryan Is Elected, and
Lustily Yells Fraud.
Chicago, Nov. 4. Chairman Jones, of
the Democratic national committee, at
noon today sent the following message
to" Mr. Bryan:
William J. Bryan, Lincoln, Neb:
We Iihvc all along claimed for yon the
southern states, with l.V votes, and the
"tales west of the Missouri, with !
votes, leaving necessary to success sev-n
votes. I counted Michigan, Indiana and
Minnesota. We have no Information ex
cept by the press despatches indicating
that we have lost any of these states,
tin the contrary, we are positively as
sured of all the south, except Maryland,
and that we have not heard from. The
West, so fur as heard from. Is safe. Cali
fornia, Oregon, Washington, Wyoming
and Montana are reported by our friends
to be all right. If we carry either of
three states of Minnesota, .Michigan, or
Indiana we certainly win, and our re
ports ure favorable for them all.
Martin, chairman of the committee Jn
Indiana, wired nt 2 o'clock this morning
that we have Indiana,
All reports from Michigan show im
mense gains, anil Townc, of Minnesota,
siiys he ha. carried his district, althoiiKh
the Republicans claim It. Reports from
our vfikiHls everywhere show press re
ports to be partisan and grossly unfair
to us. Press bulletins persistently give
Kentucky to McKlnley, while Sommers,
cnuirman of the committee, wires me that
42 counties of 119 gives Bryan 23.ii35.
JAMKS K. JUNKS.
At B p. m. Chairman Jones said : "We
cannot lose. The Republicans are 'per
petrating frauds. Indiana Is for Bry
an. Iowa's later returns are our way.
Our people say Kentucky ia all right.
California and Oregon have gone for
Bryan. I have no fear of "West Vir
ginia and I do not concede McKinley's
election." Air. Jones's statement is not
borne out by the returns received up to

Castle county "Sr" was added to his
name. Many of the election olllcers
gave James O. Shaw the votes, keeping
tally only on the head of the Republican
ticket. Others kept a tally for hoth
names and so made retunra. To what
exteift this has been done cannot de
velopo until the official count on
Thursday. Then much will depend on
the action of the board of canvass.
If the intent of the voters Is to be
taken, Shaw will be given the entire
vote, but, if an attempt Is made to
show that two men were really voted
for, it jnay result in losing one vote

wuy In regurd to these prisoners and
without regard to treaty rights.
After the court at Madrid set aside
the sentence of death Imposed on these
prisoners by the first court martial' It
was understood that they would be
given a civil trlul.
Instead, of this, however, Captain
Luhorde, the American correspondent
Melton, and the other Competitor pris
oners were recently summoned before
a naval court at Havana and requlr-l
to Hie written declarations as prelim
inaries to a new court martial. The
prisoners, however, refused to make
any statement save in the presence of
PROTEST ENTERED BY GEN. LEE.
General Lee had not been advised by
Cataln General Weyler that the prison
era would be retired, but as soon us the
consul learned unofficially what was
going on, and that the eases had been
called for military and not for civil
consideration, he sent an energetic note
to Captain General Weyler, protesting
against the retrial not In accordance
with treaty stipulations and entering
exceptions to the proceedings as inaug
urated. Captain General Weyler . avoided
making and direct response, pleading
lack of authority to treat on diplomatic
matters, nnd questioning General Lee's
right to discuss matters which it had
been the custom to submit to Madrid
for settlement by the American minis
ter and the Spanish foreign office.
General Lee then sent Captain Gen
eral Weyler a second note, more ener
getic than the first. In which he relter
taed his previous objections, and.in ad
dition strongly hinted that the Irregu
lar proceeding, if not remedied, would
prevent the I'nited States from recog
niing in any way the validity of the
Captain General "Weyler did not
answer this note, but shortly afterward
the courtmartial proceedings which
had been instituted in the Cubanu fort
ress were suspended.
Captain General Weyler then request
ed General Lee to furnish proof that
Melton and the other Competitor pris
oners were American citizens. Before
replying General Lee cabled to Secre
DECLARED TO BE AMERICANS.
As soon as Secretary Olney answered
General Lee sent a note to Captain
General Weyler stating that the prison
ers, having been captured at sea on
board of a vessel flying- the American
Hag, he must consider them all under
American protection, even in the ab
sence of specific Individual certificates,
and no arms having been found In their
possession, all were equally entitled
to civil trial.
Again and again Captain General
Weyler requested General Lee to fur
nish proof t hat the prisoners were
American citizens, and as often the
consul replied: "They were all cap
tured under the American flag, and
they are ull under the protection of that
Captain General Weyler then pro
posed to allow the correspondent, Mel
ton, to go free, but to punish the oth
ers. General Lee again replied that he
could make no distinction, as the Am
erican flag was over them all.
In the meanwhile General Lee and
Secretary Olney were in constant cable
correspondence about the matter, and
the consul general was Anally ordered
For diplomatic reasons Consul Gen
eral Lee would probably deny it, but
it Is a fact, nevertheless, that he said
to an intimate friend before leaving
for the United States: "It would not
surprise me if I should return to Hav
ana on a war ship."
The Cflbun leaders here are jubilant,
as they say that the result will be
either Intervention by the United States
or an ignominious back down on the
part of Spain which would destroy
whut little prestige she hus left.
