Chairman Twitty, of the Glynn
county democratic executive committee,
deserves credit for the magnificent vote
soiled in this county yesterday. For
some days past Mr. Twitty has been
hard at work and we are Kind to say
that* ch good results followed.
Local democrats, while active when
there is a contest, are just the reverse

work, and had it not been for the

THE NATIONAL RESULT.
To tbe result of yesterday’s election,
many and various causes contributed.
The defeat of the man who led one of
the greateat popular movements of
modern times was not accomplished
easily. Herculean exertions on the
part of the allied forces of the opposi
tion was necessary Money had to flow
in a lavish stream. Agencies never be
fore employed In an American election
bad to be brought into action. Unusual
influences were indispensable. It was
the first time in our history that a cru
sade distinctively of the people, met in
the clash of clyic struggle, the forces of
the money kings and politicians. The
latter won. It Is a reflection on the
success and the virtue of popular self
Ho one can deny that, In the election
of Mr. McKinley, the man of lessor
merit triumphed. Tbe wonderful rec
ord of his opponent, sweeping over the
country, a modera crusader, hailed by
tbe acclaim of thousands of the tollers
of the land, tireless and undaunted in
the brilliancy of his eloquent and de
votion to his cause, will stand against
the evasive, cowardly methods of the
succeesful candidate, to tbe
future that in' America the people were
content with an Aaron Buyfwben they
might have had a Hamilton.
To bring about the defeat of this hero
of the people thoro was needed not only
all the batteries of argument that could
be turned against the policy of free sil
ver, against the criticism of the imperial
policy and the denunciation of tbe use
of federal troops, but also the most ex
tensive use of money which has ever
been known in au election In this or in
any other conntry.
Besides all these influences, brought
to bear upon the national mind, the
advocates of unfairly and
falsely appealed to the patriotism of
the people by condemning the Bryan
campaign as an attempt to revive sec*
tionailsm, to breed rebellion and to
wreck the institutions of- the country.
The cry of anarchy—the giostc t .!>•
that ever disgraced the campaign of
any party—was raised. Mr. Bryan and
liia followers wei e denounced as repud
iatlonists, revolutioni#U, Uatlota and
all the nameß that fear could bring u*
the lips of falsehood. Ailthis availed
much. It was despicable, but it was
William McKinley Is sgain presl
dent of the United States. But the
shadow ol Mark Hanna and the thingf
he represents will rest fur four more
Jeais on the White House, It Is very
much U) be feared that in saving them
selves from tho evils of freb silver, the
people have placed themselves under
a leadership that is far more dangerous.
The financial and social downfall oi
Anna Gould’s husband is not entirely a
tragedy, and a good many Americans
will call it a blessing.
Any attempt to build up a great for
tune and hold the. same intact, as is
done In England, does not meet with*
approval in this where the self
made man deserves ahd receives ru tc
consideration than any member of th
so-called leisure class, which is the
curse of Europe.

Bryan Men Retired Early to Dream of
the Terrible Result.
There was no bonfire in Brunswick
last night, but a stillness which car
ried sadness with It. Tbe average
Bryan man went home early. Some
few remained after bearing the bad
nrwl from NeW York, but when Illi
nois and other doubtful States report
ed and were put wrong
column, it was too much for a good
democrat to etand, and they slowly
wended their way homeward. Tbe
few MoKtnleyites were jubilant. Col.
Henry T. Dunn wore a smile as broad
as a Roosevelt bat, and Mr. F.
Mo, Brown wanted to treat everybody
in town to soda and cigars.
Mr. W. B. Cook also seemed as bap
py as a man generally gets to be.
One old time democrat waked up to
the opera house bulletin board aad
wanted to learn something of the re 1 -
suit. When toil! that McKinley had
won be said “how abhttt Brantley,” he
is alright said a bystander, “thank
heaven for that," said the old democrat
and he went home.
