Says the Democrats Have Won the

Out of Victory by Election iTudgei.
lly Kxclu'bi' Witc from The Associated Pieu.
Chicago, Oct. 31. Senator Jones,
chairman of the democratic national
committee, speaking of Croker's recent
nuggestlon that "Democratic voters
congregate about the polling places on
the evening of election day count noses
and then, If the election returns for
Bryan do not tally with the returns
go Into tlie polling places and throw
those fellows In charge of tho returns
Into the street." said:
"I don't see anything tvrons -with
that suggestion. Senator Hill I be
lieve suggested a baseball bat as being
peculiarly appropriate to render jus
tice to a corrupt election judge. In
my opinion the best way is for the
Democrats to be at the polls when
they are open and to remain there in
good, strong relays until the count is
complete. It should bo tho duty ot
these Democrats to watch the judges
and the count and to see to It that
no fraud Is committed and if any
rraua is attemptea to stop it then and
"The Democratic party ii opposed
to violence, but at the same time 1
feel -warranted In saying that the
Democrats fully intend to reap the
fruits of their victory. If intimidation
is attempted at the polls or fraudu
lent counting tried by election judges
there will be Democrats in the vicinity
all ready to take just such action as
may be necessary to stop It..
"There will be neither intimidation
at tho polls, ballot box stuffing nor
fraudulent counting this year. If this
If ijjtteiiipted R wJH be stopped .there
and then. And If anyone gets hurt
in the process of prevention I hope It
will not be the honest man who Is
doing his duty fairly and well. The
Democrats have made an honest cam
paign. We have appealed to the heads
and hearts of the American people. We
have won the fight and, by heaven, we
will not be defrauded out of our vic
tory by the chicanery of election
judges. If our Republican friends will
be honest there will be no trouble but
Intimidation at the polls or attempted
dishonesty in the counts will bo met
by such methods as may be neces
sary and entirely effective."
