THE HOUSE AND SENATE
The complexion of the national
house of representatives is still un
certain. The senate will certainly be
Democratic, though the present ma
jority of 16 may be reduced.
On early reports Republican lead
ers claimed an advantage over the
Democrats of 23 in the new house,
against a Democratic advantage of
31 in the last congress.
Later returns,, especially from
western states, have changed these
figures, reducing the Republican
claim. The house will probably be
Republican on a straight party vote,
counting in many progressive Re
publicans on that side of thehouse.
In Indiana the Democrats have ap

gart. Maryland is in doubt, with the
Republicans having a chance to win

Prank O. Lowden swept into the
governoship of Illinois with the high
tide of Republicanism that gave the
state to Charles E. Hughes. Low
den's strength-may be estimated by
incomplete returns which show that,
depending on only the men's vote,
he combed only about six votes less
to a precinct than the entire men's
and women's votes for Hughes and
Fairbanks. Lowden and Hughes will
probably each have a plurality of
The rest of the G. O. P. state ticket
appears to have ridden along with
Hughes and Lowden, although Sec'y
of State Lewis Stevenson is still
hopeful of nosing out Louis L. Em-'
merson. The, Republicans will also
control both houses of the legisla
