interesting facts. These returns
show that in the five congressional
districts carried by the Populists tne
total vote received by the Populist
candidates wals 99,531. In these
districts McKiniey received 77,179
votes. It is fair to assume that
75,000 ot" these vote3 were cast by
Keubiicnns for the Populist candi
dates. In return for iir-i-e 75,000
Republican votes it appears that the
Popuiist3 gave Pearson, in the
ninth, 140 votes ; Lhiney, in the
eighth, 750 votes; Settle, in the
fifth, none; White, in the second,
none. In other words, in curving

congressional districts every Popu

and that the Republicans would
have carried the first, third and
sixth districts, and the Democrats
would have carried the fourth and
seventh districts, making the repre
