. FAVOR DEMOCRATS
1 IN BOTH BRANCHES
Republican Gains in House
Probable, But Present Sen
ate Majority to Be Main
tained or Increase!.
The next Congress wilt bo Democratic,
according to forecasts based upon can
vMt made by the Sun, tho World and
the Herald, of New York city. Though
,u .mimales aro not Identical, each
hows the Democratic party will havo a
majority of approximately 43 votes In
the House nnci at least 10 In the Senate.
If correct, these figures mean that the
Democrats would loso 66 seats In the
HoiifO and gain two In tho Senate.
Progressives will lose heavily, all threo
nempapefs nro convinced. Tho present
rrogreKlvo vote In tho House Is 18. This
Till be cut to seven, according to the
forecasts A substantial gain for tho Re
publican party Is agreed upon. This will
come out of tho Bull Moose strength and
defection In tho Democratic States. It
ill raise tho Republican House voto from
121 to 192.
Chang1" In the Senate to be worked
on Tuesday of next week will Increase
the Democrats' majority, the estimates
ihow Republicans thero now number 45
and Democrats 61. This will shift to 54
Democrats against 41 or 42 Republicans,
tccordlng to tho Herald and the Sun fore
casts, Tho estimate la made without
counting as certain the Senate contest In
PALMER CHANCES BRIGHTER.
Penrose Republicans had been predict
ing the election of Penrose until two
weeks ago, but slnco then their confidence
has ben shaken nnd Washington observ-
I ers have been looking toward tho candi
dacy of A. Jlltchell Palmer as the most
piomlslng. Growing disaffection In South
Philadelphia and the likelihood of an open
revolt against Penrose on the part of the
Vare followers has become an Important
factor In the observation of the Pcnnsvl.
Washington is beginning to look upon
the i'enroso canaiaacy as hopeless. Mr.
ralmer, the Democratic nominee, has
risen to tho favorite's placo In all tho
estimates. GIITord rinchot. forecasts say,
will poll a heavy vote from the Republi
can ranks, to tho further weakening of
Penrose Palmer Is the candidate picked
to win, however.
The election of Penrose, who has long
been a calamity howler, particularly out
tide of Congress, could not bo of nny
possible benefit to tho protectionists In
the Senate so far as a revision of the
tariff Is concerned. I
Even If a Republican landslide at next
week's election should give that party
control of the House, for tho reason, as
stated, the Democratic prepondennnce
at the other end of tho capltol 1b morally
certain to bo Increased, regardless of the
result In Pennsylvania. This fact, with
a Democratic executive In the Whlto
House, shows how futile must be any
hops of tariff legislation.
TENROSE A PARTV MILLSTONE.
The very reverse of possible benefit
which Penrose partisans havo made a
Isadlng part of their propaganda to brine
about his re-election is Indicated In a
published statement by United States
Senator George W. Norrls, of Nebraska.
Mr. Norrls Is a Republican and intended
to visit Pennsylvania this fall to speak
ssalnst Penrose, but has been prevented
by 111 health from carrying out his pro
gram, In writing, however, he has made
plain the view taken by national Repub
licans regarding the Pennsylvania con
flict He Bnirt:
"The candidacy of Mr. Penrose In Penn
sylvania Is doing untold Injury to tho
Republican party In all parts of tho
nation, and nothing would help that party
mora than his defeat on November 3."
As a Republican party millstone, tho
effect of Penrose's candidacy could not
be more lucidly expressed than In this
quotation from a letter written by a Re
publican United States Senator of national
FORECASTS OF THE HOUSE.
The New Tork Herald's forecaat, a
conservative prophecy, gives Democrats
111 sure otes In tho next House, and
Republicans 163 votes. Ono vote is the
best outlook the Progressives have, ac
cording to the Herald, nnd GO votes are
let down as uncertain. Theee 60, de
noted "uncertain" by the Herald, help
the World to predict a Democratic vote
of 227 In the next House. Nineteen dis
tricts are doubtful, as tho World sees It,
and Republicans may look for 178 votes.
A severe slump in tha Progressive party
all over the United States Is forecast
Hull Moose defections are rnimM nnnn
tf bring up the Republican vote In tho
House to 152 Pronrrpaslvos. mav tha T.
publican leaders, ara tired of supporting
a !rt cause: the? will desert In a body
to the Republican camp. Estimates place
the defection nt 65 per cent In ten
elections since 1812 tho Bull Moose havo
lost an avernen of FO nor rnt nt thai-
votes, It h acknowledged. Figuring an
per cent desertion In the election Tiles
aay the Republican gain would amount
w 6, seat in the House Even this.

a Broadway restaurant on Friday after

agreed to bet his large, throbbing heart
