Populists with democrats populists with Silver republicans and populists straight. Silver republicans with democrats Silver republicans with populists Silver republicans with Mckinley republicans and Silver republicans straight. Mckinley republicans with Silver republicans and Mckinley republicans straight. Prohibitionists straight. This is the status of the political situation in the different counties of the state.
