Other observers are even more san
guine than Mr. Hanna, and considers
several of his doubtful states safely
Republican. The same overwhelming
vote which promises to carry McKinley
triumphantly to the White house will
certainly elect a house of representa
tives with a Republican majority as
large or larger than the present house,
and the following analysis of the senate
situation makes it evident that the Re
publicans will have a working majority
there, and that McKinley will have the
support of both branches of congress
in carrying out the promises of the St.
THE PRESENT SENATE.
The present senate consists of 89
members, 44 of whom are classed as Re
publicans, 39 as Democrats and as
Populists. But of the 44 Republicans,
some held close relations with the sil
ver men, and several of them were so
extreme that they were willing to hold
Up the government rather than surren
der their own views. Senators Teller,
Dubois, Mitchell, Squire, Pettigrew and
Cannon have not always with safety
been counted on as strict party men.
Senators Clark, Carter.Wilson and Wol
cott, after having fought for free coin
ace, are now heartily supporting Mc
Kinley. Of these eighty-nine men, thirty go
out of office on March 4. Fourteen of
them are Democrats, three Populists,
eight strict Republicans, and four Tel
lcr.Dubois, Mitchell and Squire are sil
ver men, who have been classed as Re
publicans, while Mr. Prltchard.of North
Carolina, was elected as a Republican
through fusion with Populists.
Among the holdovers In the senate
are thirty-one Republicans, excluding
Mr. Dupont, of Delaware. Cannon, of
I'tah; Clark, of Wyoming; Mantle, of
Montana, and Pettigrew, of South Da
kota, together with three Populists and
twenty-two Democrats, also kept their
seats. With the exception of Pettigrew
it is perhaps unjust to count these sil
ver men outside the Republican ranks.
It is done only for the purpose of can
vassing all possibilities and leaving out
of the Estimate of the Republican
strength every man whose loyalty to
silver sentiment In his state might
make him an obstructionist of Republi
SEATS SURELY REPUBLICAN.
These thirty-one rock-ribbed Repub
licans will be reinforced by a sufficient
number from the senators newly elect
ed to give those who are at once gold
men and Republicans a positive ma
jority over silver and gold Democrats,
Populists and silver Republicans com
bined. Connecticut will send back Mr.
Piatt, and New Hampshire Mr. Gal
linger. Vermont has re-elected Mr.
Morrill and Iowa Mr. Allison. Mr. For
aker (ReD.) succeeds Mr. Brlce (Dem.)
from Ohio, and Mr. Wellington (Rep.)
Mr. Gibson (Dem.), of Maryland. Mr.
Perkins, of California, a sound money
Republican, Is certain to be returned.
Then Senators Palmer, of Illinois; Hill,
of New York, and Vilas, of Wisconsin,
are as certain to be replaced by Re
publicans as If the election had already
taken place. Pennsylvania will elect
a Republican successor to Mr. Camer
on and Washington will doubtless send
a Republican to succeed Mr. Squire.
Mr. Voorhees, of Indiana, will give
way to a Republican.
So, here are thirteen Republicans to
be added to the thirty-one Arm hold
overs. They will give the party 44
votes, without counting any possibly
Democratic senators will undoubted
ly come from Alabama, Arkansas.
Florida, Georgia, Louisiana and South
Carolina to reinforce the twenty-two
Democratic hold-overs. Colorado
Idaho and Nevada, with Senators Tel
ler. Dubois and Jones, or their suc
cessors, may be conceded to the Pop
ocrats. Then there are North Caro
lina, Oregon, Utah, Kansas, Kentucky,
Missouri, Delaware, South Dakota and
North Dakota, In which the Republi
cans need to win only two senators to
give them an absolute majority of the
senate. Independent of any silver com
bination, even could It Include men
who have formerly been extreme all
verltles but who are now supporting
McKinley. One senator from these
states will give the Republicans con

Failure of fusion between Democrats
and Poullsts on the state ticket In Mis
souri promises a Republican successor
to Mr. Vest, even If Bryan should car
ry the state, which now seems problem
atical. The Republicans now feel cer
tain of carrying Kansas for McKinley,
and If so will replace the Populist,
Peffer, with a good Republloan. There
is every reason to hope that Kyle, the
Populist from South Dakota, will be
retired and his place taken by a sound
money Republican, and Mr. Hans
brought or some other Republican will
come from North Dakota. The Ken
tucky U-!r'ature, which failed last
ear le t r successor to Senator
'' klum, holds over, but there are
tncugh vacancies to be filled next week
to make a Republlean majority on joint
ballot possible, and with the electoral
vote surely for -McKinley It la more
than likely that the Republicans will
gain the necessary votes. Either a Re
publican or Sound Money Democrat
will certainly be elected In Kentucky.
The unfortunate faction fight in Dela
ware alone kept Delaware from having
Republican representation last winter,
and that alone clouds the prospect for
the next senate. Utah and North Caro

VOTES TO SPARE.
States which will surely send Re
publicans to the senate are:
States in which the Republicans ex

Missouri. j Oregon.
Being able to count upon at least
thirty-one hold-overs, and fairly on

BRYAN ATTENDS CHURCH.
Crowds Gather to View tbe Boy Orator
at JiCksonvilleYellow Rib
Jacksonville, Ills.. Oct. 25. All church
going Jacksonville turned out this
morning to see Mr. and Mrs. William
J. Bryan and during most of the day
the residence of Dr. Hiram K. Jones,
where they are Moping, was surround
ed by curious people. It was in this old
educational town, that Mr. Bryan
spent six years of his life as a student.
The candidate and his wife naturally
anticipated a pleasant day In such
famillur envorntnents and they spent
a delightful Sunday, meeting old
friends, and talking with them over
their college days.
Although Mr. and Mrs. Bryan did not
reach Jacksonville until near 2 o'clock
this morning many people had waited
up to see them and to cheer the candidate.-
But little rest had been allowed
the nominee in that fast ride. He was
awakened twice, the first time to make
a midnight speeech to a big audience
at Bluffs, and again at Mount Sterling,
where neither the lateness of the hour
nor the fact that it was Sunday could
stay the enthusiasm of the Bryanltes.
The Jacksonville people who awaited
the arrival of their former townsman
were disappointed, for Mr. Bryan re
mained in his berth and did not leave
the train until nearly 9 o'clock this
morning. With Mrs. Bryan he went to
the house of Dr. Jones and later In the
afternoon attended divine services at
the State Street Presbyterian ohurch.
The church was crowded to the doors.
A number of small boys and some
others who were not so small, all wear
ing strios of yellow ribbon, followed
Mr. and Mrs. Bryan from their car
riage into the building and gave a
suppressed hurrah for McKinley. Four
houses of worship, including that at
tended by Mr. and Mrs. Bryan, occupy
the four corners of the stgeets, and
the congregations of all these were
dismissed within a few minutes of
each other, so that with the five hun
dred or more people who had been
waiting otftside for the two most in
teresting persons in Jacksonville to
appear. State Street Presbyterian
church was surrounded by quite a
large assemblage as the candidate and
his wife hurriedly made their may to
a waiting carriuge and were driven
back to the residence of their host.
Mr. Bryan slept part of the afternoon
and the rest of his spare time was de
voted to receiving old friends.
Tomorrow morning Mr. Bryan will
Visit the state college, and probably
talk to the students there about the
time when he was an under graduate.
In the afternoon he will make a
speech and at R o'clock will leave for
One Person Killed and Three Others
Amesbury, Mass., Oct. 25. A fearful
accident occurred here this afternoon,
by which one person was Instantly kill
ed and three others badly Injured. Al
fred H. Coombs, his wife, a ten-year-old
boy named Percy, who lived with them,
and another boy, a son of Alfred Mor
rill, started from Mr. Coombs' house at
Tuxbury's Corner to drive to Newton,
N. H., to attend church, when the horse
took fright and plunged over an em
bankment throwing them out.
Mrs. Coombs' head struck a tree,
crushing it into an unrecognizable mass
and breaking the neck. Mr. Coombs
was rendered unconscious and will
probably die. The boy Percy Is Injured
internally and has Email chance of liv
ing. The Morrill boy was the least In
jured. Coombs was one of the best
known farmers in this town.

GERMANY'S VIEW OF
Progress of the Presidential Campaign
li Watched with Keen Interest.
OPINION OP VOSSISCHE ZE1TUNG
It Predicts That the Economic Move
meat ia the tailed States Cannot
Be Affected by the Results of Elec
tionThinks That the Bryan Party
Is Simply After the Spoils. .
Berlin, Oct. 25. The progress of the
presidential election campaign In the
United States is watched here with the
keenest interest, though more from a
financial point of view than with any
Idea of contrasting the social positions
occupied by the candidates. It Is dif
ficult, however, to get as yet even from
the leading newspapers which devote
columns of space to the subject an
Intelligent appreciation of the situa
tion. Voluminous letters are received
here by mall conveying to Germans me
developments of the struggle In which
so many millions of their countrymen
are interested, but few of the news
papers here follow an Intelligent line
of argument In discussing the ques
tions which the campaign compre
hends. The Vosslche Zeitung publishes an
article from among the others in which
it embodies the general German notion
of the situation. In the course of an edi
torial the paper says It Is a rare thing
In the political history of the United
States that the Democrats of the old
school stand solidly together, shoulder
to shoulder, with their old Republican
opponents to fight! against the so
called candidate of the national Demo
cratic party, Mr. Bryan, and It is still
more surprising to old observers of
political campaigns to see the Demo
crats of the eastern states standing up
for McKinley, despite the fact that he
Is the apostle of the doctrine of a high
protective tariff which they have con
sistently combatted for years.
THET WANT SPOILS.
The Vosslche, quoting from the New
Tork Handelszeltung in regard to the
platform upon which Mr. Bryan is
making his campaign, proceeds to
argue that neither the principles of the
currency nor that of the tariff es
pecially Inspires Mr. Bryan and his fol
lowers, who, the paper says, simply
strives to carry themselves along the
old lines of belief that the spoils belong
to the victors. The article concludes
by saying that neither the victory 01
McKinley, nor the success of Bryan
can ultimately affect the economic
movement In the United States, which
depends upon causes far beyond the
struggle which is now taking place
between 'the great political parties 01
The paper also ridicules the rumors
which have been current in the col
umns of the English newspapers, fur
nished by their biassed American cor
respondents, and which have been re
produced here, that the situation In the
United States is such at the present
time that a very narrow issue could
Involve civil war, and says that the
Germans comprising a considerable
part of the American populace would
