Tho effect of the popular upilsliiB

of 247 Republican members; 2 Demo
crats, and seven Populists.

six congressional districts, und the re

fialtlmore, Md., Nov. 8. Ambassador
Thomas F. Bayard, speaking today
about Tuesday's election, said:" I have
had grave apprehension as to the re-
suit of the recent elections for some
time. It was by no means an absolute
surprise to me."
The nmbassador said that he had no
idea that the change of power was
lasting or even meant to be lasting.
"I do not want to run afoul of those
gentlemen who were responsible for
the delay lh tho passage of the tariff
bill, but, as I say, the path of duty Is
unmistakable, and the necessity for
pure Democratic tariff legislation was
jiever so great as it is now. The bills
for free raw materials should be passed
immediately, and then the country will
be able to contemplate the Democratic
idea of the tariff In full working order
for two years before another natlonn
election rolls around. If this is done,
I have little fear that the verdict will
be satisfactory in 1SH."

York early next Tuesday morning for

Washington, Nov. S. Senator Faulk

resslonnl campaign committee, is in-
lined to the opinion that the Republi
cans will be able to control the next sen-
te if they get the vote of Mr. Peffer,
even without North Carolina or Ten
nessee. The Republicans gain three
members in the senate, now represented
by one senator Montana, Wyoming
nd Washington. This brings the total
up to forty-one. Add to these New
ersey, West Virginia and Kansas, and
they have forty-tour. The single vote
of Mr. Peffer makes tho total forty-live,
majority of the whole senate, based
upon the full membership of eighty-
eight votes.

crats nre probably not amiss In assum-

Philadelphia, Nov.' 8.
The fight which the Reading railroad
receivers have begun to force their
employes to renounce all allegiance to
the Brothehood of Trainmen, or else re
tire from their present employment, as
sumed national importance and inter
est today. The case came up under
argument before Judge Dallas in the
United States circuit court in this city,
upon the Brotherhood's appeal to the
court to prevent the receivers, as ofll-
ers of the court, from driving the
rninmcu out of their order or else out
of work.
In this connection a letter of advice
from United StatesAttorney iTeneralOl-
ney, taking sides with the. men anil
against the leceivers, was presented
and was finally submitted by counsel
for the trainmen as a part of his argu
ment in their behalf.
Upon this point Lawyer Samuel
Dickson, an attorney for the Reading
receivers, attacked the attorney gen
eral severely for what he termed an un
warranted and utterly unprecedented
outside Interference with a case on
argument and awaiting decision In a
court of justice.
Before permitting Attorney General
Olney's letter to be submitted even as
a part of the argument of Lawyer Mon
tague, of Washington, D. C, for the
trainmen, Judge Dallas explained that
he had received, but had not yet reud,
a copy of the letter and would not do
so until it should come before him as
part of the proceedings.
Argument in the case was finished
today and Judge Dallas will render his
decision in a few days.

He expresses a belief that Mr. Harris

In the hands of the court. He put the
question as being: "Will the court now
lay down, the rule that members of the
Brotherhood of Trainmen shall, because
they are such members, be discharged
from the service of the road."
He says it cannot be ruled that there
is no such thing as a legal strike. He
reviewed the company's rule from the
standpoint of business expediency, upon
which the court would have to pass.
This, he said, Involved the right of labor

New York, Nov. 8.
Upon good authority It is reported
here than an arrangement has been
made between Mr. and Mrs. W'llllam K.
Vanderbllt by which the wife will get
her divorce and something like $3,000,-
000. She Is now in Newport, where she
will continue to live until she acquires
the legal residence necessary to procure
a divorce. There appears to be no doubt
that she In! ends to sue for divorce, and
it Is said Mr. Vanderbllt will not con-
tost the suit. . - -'. . .-.'.
W. K. Vanderbllt, who Is now in
Europe, Is expected to arrive here the
latter part ot this month, or the first
of December. Business Is responsible
for Mr. Vanderbilt's coming to New
An intimate friend of the Vanderbllt
family who Is in a position to know of
the affairs of W. K. Vanderbllt said to
day: "It is no secret that Mrs. Vanderbllt
will seek a divorce from her husband
and It h:s for some time been known
that the conditions upon which the pro
ceeding would "be taken have been
under consideration for some time past.
Mrs. Vanderbllt at first asked for an '
annuity of $300,000. She has Anally
agreed to accept $3,000,000 outright. I do
not believe Mr. Vanderbllt will defend a
suit for divorce no matter what allega
tions may be made. The sympathies
of the Vanderbllt family are entirely
with William K. In this matter. Mrs.'
Vanderbllt was never a favorite In thq
family, and since the cruise of the W.
K. Vanderbllts In the steam yacht Va
llant the Vanderbllt family have not
been on friendly terms with her.
Quiet Divorce Proceedings.
Parties who claim to be familiar with
the case Intimate that the divorce pro
ceedings will be conducted as quietly
as possible, and that W. K. Vanderbllt,
wanting a divorce himself, would not
oppose his wife's action.
Mrs. Vanderbllt is now occupying
"Marble House," the magnificent man
sion which her husband built, fur
nlsl d and gave to her. The building
cos) Jabout $1,000,000, and the furnlsh-
lnrf about $1,000,000 more. The ar-
rai tements maue ror the settlement
be veen the separated couple were con
ducted by William Jay, and are said to
be satisfactory to both parties.
Mrs. Vanderbllt returned to this
country from Europe a little over a
month ago, after a somewhat sensa
tloual separation from her husbund in
Paris. They went abroad on Mr. Van
derbilt's yacht, with a small party of
friends. After several quarrels they
went to Paris, and there It was reported
that Mr. Vanderbllt began to uppeur In
public with Nelly Neustretter, a notori
ous woman, who formerly lived in tills
country, but was then reigning as
queen of a certain kind of society In the
French capital.
William K. Vanderbllt Is now 44 years
of age and one of the richest men In the
world. He married Miss Alvah Smith
when she was i!6 years old. She was the
daughter of a Mobile, Ala., merchant
who came to New York and entered
society. Tho Smiths were not rich, but
tho daughters of the family were all
beauties. One of the girls waB married
to Fernando Yznaga, from whom Bhe
procured a divorce, and then was mar
ried to Mr. Tiffany. Another, Miss
Minnie Smith, is now the wife of a poor
Fronch nobleman. The youngest sister
Is unmarried and is living with Mrs,
Vanderbllt. ;
William K. Vanderbllt was exceed
ingly generous to his wife's relatives,
having made them many coBtly pres
ents. The Vanderbllt family, is is un
derstood, do not sympathize with Mrs,
Vanderbllt, and on her arrival in this
country the last time no one was at the
steamship pier, to meet her.' She pro
ceeded to the Grand Central station
from the pier in a (fired carriage and
went immediately to Newport.
