iu the house is considerably reduced.
Incomplete returns Indicate that in

jority that may not exceed 100.
Both parties profess to bo satisfied
with tho result. Tho DemocratB de
clare that tho reduction in their ma
jority is not much more than was to
have been expected in view of tho fact
that tho sixty-third congress was
elected two years ngo iu one of the
most overwhelming landslides that
any party over scored.

assort that if tho Wilson administra
