Washingtox, Oct. 3L The announce
ment from national political headquarters
of the conviction that the party which
elected the President next week would also
secure control of both branches of Congress
has naturally directed attention to that de
partment of the campaign. While the pos
sibility of such a result is recognized here,
it is regarded as by no means an absolute
certainty. The difficulty in making def
inite calculations is caused by the presence
of the People's party, which is expected to
be more of a power in Congressional con
tests than in the struggle for electoral
Nothing but a tidal wave can give the
Democrats a clear majority in the Senate,
which requires 43 members. In the pres
ent body there are 47 Republicans, 39 Deni
crats and the 2 nondescripts, Pefier and
Kyle. It will be seen that the Democrats
must gain six Senators from the Republic
ans to secure a majority of their own.
This is regarded as practically impossible,
unless there is a most remarkable change in
the trend of the canvass.
The States That Are in Danger.
There are but three States in which the
terms of Republican Senators expire where
there is a prospect of Democratic success
ors beinz chosen. These are New York,
Wisconsin and Montana. In the Empire
State the upper branch of the Legislature,
which holds over, has a Democratic major
ity of two. There 128 Assemblymen to be
elected, and under the gerrymander the
Democrats expect to carry 6G districts and
concede the Republicans 62. This is a very
narrow margin, and if the Republicans can
carry only three of the districts claimed by
their opponents they will spoil the arrange
ment They are working vigorously to that
end, but Hill is understood to be paying
more attention to the Legislature than the
national ticket, and the probability is that
the Senator who takes Hiscock's place next
March will be a Democrat.
.In Wisconsin, too, the Democrats have
the"atlTnnvi -or 1Ut -State Senators
snd a partisan apportionment, under which
tlisy claim a lead of 12 or 14 on joint ballot.
Republican leaders now expect an old-time
majority for the Presidental ticket, and
anything in the shape of a landslide would
carry the Legislature with it, notwithstand
ing the gerrymander. As it now stands the
political complexion of the next Senator
from Wisconsin is decidedly doubtful.
In Montana the present Legislature is
Republican on joint ballot by a slender
majority, and, while the Democrats are
hopeful of success, there is no apparent
reason to believe that there will be a
change. The State is close, but the fact
that Chairman Carter is understood to have
Senatorial ambitions gives the Republicans
the best of the argument.
A Possibility for the Populists.
Even if the Democrats should be vic
torious in all three States their total in the
Senate would only be increased to 42. The
real danger to continued Republican con
trol lies in the possible election of Third
party or fusion candidates. AVith Pefier
and Kyle voting against the Republicans
the Senate would be a tie, with the Vice
President having the casting vote. And
there are several States in which the legis
lative situation is very complicated. Kansas,
Nebraska, Minnesota and North Dakota
each elect Senators this winter, and in all
four the People's party is making a vigor
ous contest, aided by a more or less com
plete fusion with the Democracy. A
similar state of aflairs prevails in Michigan,
but there is little doubt of Republican
success in that State, In Nevada Senator
Stewart is running for re-election. He has
been a Republican, but is now supported
by the Democrats, Populists and silver
enthusiasts. If successful his future
political policv is very uncertain.
The Republicans have at least as much
chance in Delaware as the Democrats in
Montana. The former State has one Re
publican Senator now, and the last two
Legislatures have been Republican. In
West Virginia, too, there is a chance that a
Republican Legislature may be chosen.
All of the other States where Senatorial
terms expire are so decidedly one way or
the other as to insure that there will be no
change in their representation.
No Prospect of a Democratic Majority.
The Democrats, then, have little or no
prospect of securing a clear majority in the
Senate. If the Republicans hold their own
in the Northwest their continued ascen
dency in the upper branch of Conrrp.. !
assured. At the worst, the People's party
will hold he balance of pow er, and their
members might prove as troublesome to the
Democrats as to the Republicans. While
both elements n.ay be opposed to the pres
ent tariff it would seem a most difficult

PARIS' RIPPER AN EXPERT BUTCHER
Democrats Depend on Gerrymanders.
Tliis calculation is a conservative one,
and while there may be variations in the
figures of the various States, the totals are
believed to be fairlv accurate for a pre
election estimate. Under the cerrvmanders
prevailing in so many States hitherto Re
publican it is difficult to see how the party
can elect more than 153 members. The
Democrats do not concede them so many by
a score or more.
Upon this basis the Democrats will bay
23 more Representatives than the Repub
licans, and a majority of six over all. This
is a very scant margin, and a lew additional
seats secured by the People's party in the
Sdlith would give that organization the
balance ot poer. Then, too, a number of
the regular Democratic candidates below
Mason and Dixon's line belong to the
Farmer's Alliance, and have been indorsed
by that organization. They may side with
the Populists on economic and financial
questions, but will probably act with the
Democrats on matters affecting organization
and straight party issues.
These figures lead to the conclusion that
nothing, hut a most unexpected sweep can
give the Senate to the Democrats, while the
Republicans will have to make really
pheuominal gains to entirely overcome the
overwhelming opposition in the lower
House. The Populists have just a chance
to secure the decisive votes in either or
both branches, and unless they do so the
Congressional situation will remain practi
cally as at present. Banceoft.
TWO OFFICES ONE TOO KANT.
An Attempt to Force Ohio's Secretary of
State to Resign.
Columbus, Oct. 31. Special The
Democrats are trying to force Secretary of

trict. As Secretary of State he has the

London, Oct. 3L Despite a drenching
rain hundreds of idle workmen assembled
at Tower Hill prior to forming in proces
sion and marching through the leading
thoroughfares of the East End. The or
ganizers of the Social Democratic Federa
tion, who are usually in charge of the
marching demonstrations, were not present.
The discontent with the Federation's
agents found expression throngh a man
named O'Keefe, one of seven self-appointed
delegates who yesterday had an interview
with Rev. Dr. Parker, of the City Temple.
O'Keefe asserted that 40,000 families are
starving in the East End. He wanted the
London County Couucil to give work to the
Dr. Parker expressed his sympathy with
the workingmen, aud offered to open a hall
for the purpose of registering the names of
those out ot wore and to assist in procuring
employment for the idle. To-day O'Keefe
complained that the paid organizers were of
small use and ought to resign their posts.
A paid organizer named Inchna defended
the value of his work, and said that agita
tion would not be fruitless if it was backed
by the Trades' Council. He twitted O'Keefe
with obtaining for the unemployed money
which he had not accounted lor. O'Keefe,
amid an uproar, defied any one to say he

Another paid organizer named Vait
averted a row by moving a resolution, in
which all present concurred, declaring that
the idle workmen ought to be lurnished
with municipal employment. The unem
ployed, he said, ought to make themselves
a nuisance, lhey ought not to stop in
their hovels and starve, but should parade
the streets and show their misery. The
authorities, he added, were not afraid of
Socialists, but they were afraid of a body of
starving men who did not care whether tbev
lived or died. The authorities knew that
when such men assembled by themselves
they were dangerous aud must do something
to smooth them down. This address was
received with cheers, particularly that por

that the idle workingmen would no longer

THE KAISER TOLERANT.
He Utters Words of Itellgious Peace at
Wittenberg's Great Protestant Celebra
tionLuther's Famous Church Bededl
cated With Great Pomp Protestant
Princes of the Empire There.
Wittenberg, Oct. 31. This was a gala
day in this ancient, historical town, where
Martin Luther began his career of revolt
against the Roman Catholic Church. A
great pavilion had been built in front of
the Schloskirche doors. This church was
commenced'in 1439 and finiihed in 1499. In
1760 it was seriously injured by bombard
ment, and it suffered in the same manner in
1813-14. It was first restored in 1814-17,
and has now, owing to Emperor William's
generosity, been again restored.
On the north side of the ohurch were the
wooden doors to which L'uther affixed his
theses. These doors were burned in 17C0,
but were replaced in 1853 by metal doors
ten feet in height, presented by Frederick
William IV. They bear the original Latin
text ot Luther's theses.
Upon the arrival of the Imperial party at
the railway station here they were wel
comed by Prince Stolberg-Wernigerode,
who conducted tbem to the Town Hall.
The dibtance was long, but .the Emperor
walked all the way.
J.ne imperial partv were received at the
Town Hall by the Burgomaster of Witten
berg, who, on behalf of the municipal au
thorities, read an address to the Emperor.
AVheathis was finished and the Emperor had
replied in a fen words, thanking the town's
officials for their good wishes, a procession
was then formed and proceeded to the church.
When Emperor William arrived at the
door ot the church, Prof. Adler, the archi
tect of the restored edifice, presented the
key to His Majesty, who with a few
gracious words handed it to the Prisident
of the Church Council. The latter, in turn,
handed the key to Dr. Quandt, the pastor
of the church. After further services the
party proceeded to Luther's house, where
the Kaiser signed the deed of dedication.
Ataianquet in the evening the Emperor
