BRUNSWICK, GA. THURSDAYuMORNING, NOVEMBER 8, 1900.
When asked for an expression on the result of the national election Con
gressman Brantley dictated the following to a Tihus-Cail representative last
"The result of the presidential election it a distinct and decided disappoint
ment. The startling faot is before us that a majority of the people have voted to
retain in power a party that staods for government outside of the Constitution,
for a grsat standing army, and under whose administration the trusts have grown
stronger and more powerful than in any period of the worid’f hhjfeory. This vote
must be constraed by the party in ppwor as,.endorsing the things for which it
stands. It seems to me, therefore, that thoughtful citizens, when they look upon
what has been done, and the approval, giwu To it, must view th**future with ap
prehension, lam not a pessimist and I hope for the txsit: My confidence in
patriotismof the people when that patriotTgjh'u aroused is supreme. There is
nothing for us to do except continue the fight against imperialism, againstllin
tarism and against renewed and increasing vigor. It may he that
a determined sod aggrtsslA warfare against these, evils, continued without in
termission, wj!l result in changing the policy of the administration, and, If not. it

will have been seen, the conscience of the peoplo will have been quickened, their
patriotism will have asserted the resulfctkatHhe republican party

disaster that has befallen democracy throughout the country at large.
"But for the vigilance of the democratic leaders in the several counties of the
district and the active campaign that has been conducted and . the earnest effort*
of our newspapers, we would have been caught napping in some of our counties.
The opposition made no show of a fight, and yet their organization was well per
fected, and they polled thdlr full strength. They came near catching ns out in
more than one county by their silent and secret methods, which lured many of onr
people into the bflief that no opposition existed, and they did thus succeed in cut

“The voth in Glynn county is exceedingly gratifying. Almost the fuji white
vote was polled, and less than half a dozen white votes were cast against me.’’

THAT SECRET WORK.

The silent, secret workings of tbe
republican candidate against Con
gressman Brantley threw thousands of
demoorats in this distriot off their
guard, and caused them to believe that
there was no opposition to democracy’s
brainy standard bearer.
Below is given tbe contents of s
postal oard received by Congressman
Brantley from Coffee county, wbioh
demonstrates the seoretness with
which tbe republicans worked, and
tbe result-in Coffee, 142 majority for
the republican oendidate, shows bow
effectively this quiet work threw the
democrats off their guard.
The oard reads:
Hon. W. G. Brantley, Brunswick Ga.:
Dear Sir—Lookout! There is a man
running against you for Congress up
here. I think be lives at Fitzgerald;
don’t remamber his name. I thought
I would tell yon about it as you would
not be likely to find it out unless some
of your friends put yon “on to’’ it. I

SILVER ISSUE NOW
DEAD AND BURIED
JONEBGRUSHED OVER DEFIAI
Ho Will Go Homo—The Question
Now Is, Who Will bo Loader
of the Party in 1904 ?
Cbioago, Nov. 7.—The talk of a re
organization of the demooratl party
in this oity is rife, and the mutteriogs
against Jones and Bryan arebeooming
pronounced even at tbii early date.
The oity of Chicago waa last night
turned into a bedlam. Before mid
night men and women, blowing horns
and shouting for McKinley, paraded
the streets in hordes. Many ot both
saxes were hilariously drunk, end the *
demoastrstioa was unprecedented
even in tha Windy City. It continued
His defeat has oost Mr. Bryan many
friends already, and they are now
seeking another leader. The “I-told
you-ao” individual made his appear*
anee at headquarters early, and the
rebellion agalnet the Nebraskan is
pronounoed. The diseatisfled are cry
ing “Silver, silver I" in earcsstlo and
unpleasant tone*. Chairman Jones,
who has given up earlier this year
than in 1890, ii broken in spirit, and
feels tbe defeat keenly. He will seek
the seclusion of his Arkansas home be
foro venturing to Washington. Mr..
Bryan is bearing up well, but be thor
oughly realizes that be oac never be
president. He may be prevailed npon
to go to the senate, but his mind now
is evidently turned toward
for a time at least, though be may have
several offers of a business nature
within tbe next day or ao.
Senator Jones la thoroughly tired
and wornout, and will surely give up
the leadership of the party to make
way for reorganization. Tbe leaders
at democratio headquarters declare
the silver Issue defeated Mr. Bryan,
The people, they say, rejected the free
silver in 1890 with emphasis, and re
sented tbe effort to keep up the agita
tion of a question considered settled.
Chairman l’ayne, of the republican
committee at Chicago, says that tbe
victory is oomplete, and that Bryanism
and silver are dead. The South is
alone firm lor them, and the people of
tbe country stand for MoKinley, sound
money, and expansion. If tho demo
cratio party can be reorganized on pa
triotic lines, we msy have a reunited
oountry. The loss of tbe house of rep-
