Incomplete Returns Indicate Plurality
of 10,000 for Bryafl.
Lincoln, Nov. 4. Indications this
morning are that Nebraska has gone
Democratic by a plurality not far
from 10,000 for Bryan and a plurality
scarcely less for ShBllenberjjcr, Dem
ocrat, for governor. Tho result was
a Hurprlso and disappointment to Re
publican managers, who, while admit
ting the state was doubtful on the na
tional ticket, confidently expected
their stato ticket to bo elected. The
tremendous gain for Bryan in tho city
of Lincoln was tho sensntlon of the
flection. Not only did Mr. Bryan re
verse a Republican plurality of 1,600
Jn his homo city, but he carried It by
a plurality something In excess of COO.
Winchester county will increaso his
plurality to probably 800. Bryan car
ried his precinct, IOC to 52 foi Taft.
Tho vote In Omaha was also n sur
prise. Returns outside of Lincoln and
Omaha show an average Democratic
gain of eight to the precinct. If this
is maintained throughout, Bryan haB
won by a Utile over '8,000, rfsldo from
Lincoln and Omaha, and Shallenbergcr
Is elected governor by practically tho
While returns are Incomplete on
congressmen, Indications are for tho
election of Pollard, Republican, In
tho First district and Illnshaw, Re
publican, In tho Fourth. Hitchcock,
Democrat, wins In the Second and the
Third, Firth and Sixth are in doubt.
No returns have been received on the
legislature, but the strong trend to

Indications this morning were that
Boyd, Republican, had been defeated
for re-election to congress by Latta,
Democrat, by perhaps 1,000. Boyd
won two years ago by 255.
Tho Republican state cbmmltteo
was not "ready to make any statement.
It was held by the committee that the
later returns might change the com
plexion of the roturns materially, es
pecially those from the western ond
of the state.
T. St Allen, chairman of tho Demo
cratic state central committee, said:
"Bryan has carried Nebraska by 15,
000, Shallenbergcr has carried It by
more than that. Wo base our esti
mates on 2,000 precinct returns."
Omaha, Nov. 4. On the face of re
turns received this morning, tho Dem
ocratic ticket In Nebraska has a slight
lead, but the varied elements entering
Into tho vote leaves the state In doubt,
both on the national and state tickets.
Mr. Bryan has been tho recipient of a
henvlly Increased vote, but Its extent
will not be known until -further re
turns hnve been received. Shallen

ernor, will rollow the national ticKet
The returns received thus far have,
been from cities and towns, which
wore expected to show a large gain
for Bryan and Shallenbergcr, and the
final Issue will depend upon the farm
er vote, which Is In doubt.
Bryan Silent on Election.
Falrvlew, Lincoln, Nov. 4. William
J. Bryan received at his homo, Fair
view, the returns which early told
him that for the third time he had
been defeated in the greatest ambition
of his life. Confident of victory to the
very last, he wa3 not prepared to be
lieve that his cause was lost until the
pluralities of bis Republican opponent
piled up in such proportions as to
The Feat That Made William N.
In the early days of the exploitation
of various reaping machines a field
demonstration, usually competitive,
was n necessary occurrence. II. N.
Casson In "Tho Romance of tho Reap

N. Whltolcy, "the Charlemagne of the

"I've ficen BUI Whlteley racing his1
horses through the grain nnd leunlug
over with his long arms to pick the
mice's nests from just In front of the
knife," said nn old Ohio settler.
Tho feat that first made Whlteley fa
mous was performed at .Tnmestown,
O., In 1807. Ills competitor was doing
as good work as be was, whereupon he
sprang from his scat, unhitched one
horse and finished his course with n
single surprised steed pulling the heavy
His competitor followed suit nnd suc
ceeded fully as well.
This enraged Whlteley, who nt that
time was as powerful as a young Her
cules. "I can pull that reaper myself J" be
shouted, turning his second horse loose
nnd yoking his big shoulders Into the
Such a thing had never been done be
fore and has never been done since,
but it Is truo that in the passion of the
moment Whlteley was filled with such
strength that he ran the reaper from
one side of the field to the other, cut
ting a full swntli, a deed that, bad he
done It In ancient Greece, would havo
placed him among, the Immortals.
That ten minutes In a horse collur
made $2,000,000 for Whlteley. His an
tagonist, Benjamin II. Warder, was
filled with admiration for Whlteley's
prowess nnd nt once proposed that they
should quit fighting nnd work in har
mony. "Give me the rJght to make your
reaper, nnd I'll pay you $3 apiece for
all I can sell," said Warder.
"It's n bargain," responded Whlteley.
And so tbcro arose tho first consollda
tlon In the harvester business.
