He Wagered $116 to '$1 That Bryan
Would Not Be Elected.
Fiom (he Waliinston Post.
Stories of Senator Wolcott's cam
paign In Colorado are among the most
Interesting reminiscences of the late
campaign. One of these ntories relates
to the episode at Victor, where, as
everybody remembers, there was a
state of affairs which It would be com
plimentary to call confusion. Before
the excitement reached Its helghth
some one In the crowd shouted "Hur
rah for Ttrvan!"
"Yes," Impulsively declared Wolcott,
"yuu can hurrah for Bryan all you like,
because you won't have a chance to
hurrah for him after election. Your
man Is beaten now."
"you're a liar," came the Bryanite.
"I'll bet you one hundred and sixteen
to ons he Is beaten," said Wolcott,
The man pushed his way through the
crowd and clambered up on the plat
form. "I'll take that bet," he said.
"Well." replied Wolcott. "here 18 the
cashier of our bank. You know him?
I authorize him to pay you $11G If
Bryan Is elected. Now put up your
The man fumbled In his pocket and
brought out a silver dollar.
"Kiss It," exclaimed Wolcott, aa the
man was about to hand It to the bank
cashier. "Kiss It, for you will ne.vor
see it ngaln."
And Senator Wolcott was right.
