HOW EnYAN HEARD THE STORY.
Disappointed In New York, He Waa
Confident to the Last.
At Fairview, his home, William J.
Bryan received the returns, which
early in the told him that, for
the third time, he had been defeated
in the greatest ambition of his life.
Confident of victory to l&e very
last, he was net prepared to believe
that his was lest the plu
ralities of his republican opponent
Wm. J. BRYAN.
piled up such proportions as to
leave no room for doubt.
When the early returns came in
he made particular inquiries regarding
the state of Now York and found
much encouragement in the gains he
was making up-state over the demo
cratic vote of 1904, but as the figures
continued to be received, he relied on
Greater New York to offset the heavy
l'aft vote above the Harlem river.
Bven in that he was bitterly, disap
pointed , and he soon realizzed that the
state wa3 hopelessly gone and with It
bis prospects of being elected. r '

Taft has carfied eight counties and

tAFT MANAGER ON THE RESULT
There Are No Longer Doubtful States
Says Mr. Hitchoock.
' Chairman Hitchcock, of the repub
lican national committee, met the
newspaper reporters In his rooms at
national headquarters and made the
"The returns speak for themselves.
There seems to be no longer any
donbtful states. The electoral vote
will show that my estimate was cor

I must have underestimated it.

than I expected.

that Goveftwr Moghee would he elect

All of ua 'here at headquarters were
greatly intereetqd in the He has
earned his victory, and we are glad

help he has given us."
When Mr.' Hitchcock was asked
what he attributed the victory of the
national ticket to, he replied:
"The people have explained it. It
is not for me to say anything more ex
cept to thank the people.
"t do not think any formal statement
from me, further than what I have
said to you, Is necessary.*'
SHERMAN NOT SURPRISED.
He Said that He Expected the Returns
to Shew Taft'* Election.
James-*-S. Sherman, the republican
vice presidential candidate, received
' the election returns at his home on
tTpper GOnessee street, surrounded by
a company of relatives and friends.
The house was supplied with long
distance telephone connections and a
direct telegraph wire from New York,
and as the bulletins were read to Mr.
Sherman,, he was congratulated by
It became evident from the start
that the returns were not surprising
to Mr. Sherman. He has said all the
time that he expected the republicans
would win and he expressed no sur
prise as the returns came indicating
that tbe state had cone heavily for the
republican national ticket. He Joked
and talked with hie visitors in a very
happy frame of mind. Congratula

CHAIRMAN MACK DID NOT TALK.
He Will Not Comment on Result Until

HEARST FILES PETITION
ABOUT HASKELL SUIT
Omaha, Neb. —A petition signed by.
William R. Hearst before a notary
public in New York and asking thai
the |£oo,ooo libel suit filed by Gov
ernor Haskell, of Oklahoma, against
Mr. Hearst in the state court of Ne
braska, in Omaha, be transferred to
the federal court, was filed here by
J. W. Battin, Mt. Hearst's local
The basis of the petition is that
as the parties to the suit reside in a
state other than Nebraska, the case
cannot be tried in a state court. There
is a legal question involved in this
as to whether such a case can be
transferred to the federal court.
Ed P. Smith, local attorney for Gov
ernor Haskell, said:
"I would rather try the case in a
federal court, if it has jurisdiction, .
for the reason that ,the state laws of
iNebraska do not allow any punitive
damages, and the federal court does.
Half the amount we are suing for,
1300,000, represents punitive dam.
HOW TO CURB A COLT),
Be as carefui as 1 -you WttrydEH will oc
casionally take cold, and when you do,
get a medicine of known reliability, one
that has an established reputation and
that is certain to effect a. quick cure.
Such a medicine is Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy. It has gained a world vude
reputation by its remarkable cures of
this most commos ailment, and can al
ways be depended upon. It acts on
nature's plan, relieves the lungs, aids
expectoration, opens the secretions and
aids nature in restoring the system to a
healthy condition. During the many
years in which it has been in general
use we have yet to learn of a single
case of cold or attack of the grip hav
ing resulted in pneumonia when this
remedy was nsed. which shows con
clusively that it is a certain preventa
tive of that dangerous disease. Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy contains no
opium or other narcotic and may be
given as confidently to a baby as to an
adult. For sale by W. S. Martin & Co.
