DEMOCRATIC MAJORITY >OW TWO
Result in Delaware Assnres Control
1*. S. Senate.
Washington, January 29.?With the
election today OX VY X I IriX I U.
as United States senator from Delaware,
the democratic strength m the
next senate swung from the precarious
figure of 48, or exactly one-half of the
senate, to the safer total of 49, a majority
Mr. Saulbury's election, added to
the victory recently secured in Tennessee,
assures democratic party
absolute control of the senate after
March 4. The vote of vice president
Marshall would have oeen uie awiumg
factor in any e vent, but the addition of
another democratic vote to the column
gives the party headers what they believe
to be a safe margin for tariff . d
Contests still exist in the. legislatures
of New Hampshire, West Virginia
and Illinois, with a total of four
senators to be elected about whose
political affiliations doubt now exists.
A victory in any oae of these States
would so materially strengthen the
democratic party that the senate
would be completely removed from the
element of uncertainty.
X>e attitude of the progressives and
the progressive republicans upon tariff
matter; is as yet unknown, but the
margin of strength premised to the
-?woiroo it npr-pssarv. it is
UCI11UU1 aio *v ? ?
believed, to count upon any combinations
with the progressives.
Of the entire member?hip of 96 senators
63 will hold over beyond March
4. Of these, 32 are republicans and
31 democrats. The terms of 32 senators
expire in March and there is, in
addition, one vacancy in Illinois, inus
far IT democratic senators hav? been
elected, and the election of Senator
" Bacon. i C2eo'*e:ia, is certain, making
IS democrats to take the oath of office
Mu ch 4.
The opposition forces, including both
the republicans and the progressives,
have el cted 11 new senators. The
senate after March 4 will stand as follow-.
if tli1 deadlocks are not broken

i MANY BIE IX PANAMA.
j Canal Has Cost 895 Ures During Last
Fonr Years.?Dynamite Takes
! Like every other great w^rk of constructive
engineering the Panama Canal
has taken its toll of human life.
There have been accidents, fatal acci;
dents, and many of them. Violent
! deaths hav> been .matters of almost
j The use of tons and tons of dynamite
j has been responsible for the greater
j part of the fatal accidents on the ca|
nal work. A new record in the use of
! dynamite has been set by the American
engineers who have now brought'
f the Panama Ca. al almost to compleI
tion. The tremendous rock excavation
I in Cukbra cut has necessitated the
j continuous use of dynamite iL quanti|
ties such as have never been used be
, fore in all the- world on any single
piece of construction. In addition to
! the dangers from the -extensive use of
dynamite the canal workers have exj
posed themselvf-s to other dangers re-1
suiting from the presence of hundreds
j of trains in the canal prism, the loose;
ning of huge masses of rock and earth j
from work at great elevations from j
; the use of all sorts of machinery on
j the canal proper and in the shops, and j
, there have also been many drownings j
i in the last few years of the work as j
! water began to be admitted to parts
of the canal. j
Comparison with French Period.
Complete figures fcr the death toll j
ion the Isthmus during the canal work'
J are not obtainable in Washington, and |
, it is doubtful if they are obtainable j
; even on the canal it&eir. it is oniyi
! during the last four years that a re- j
cord of accidents has been kept at the |
offices of the canal commission here.j
This has followed the enactment by.

tion for employees injured in the lin-e I
of duty and damage- for the heirs of

the record of deaths by disease, which,
is kept s^parato'y by th sanitary officer
of the Canal Zone. Col. W. C.
Gorga?, and has V t-n coast intly maintained
ever sine the canal work w->?

world knows of how tin* Isthmus was
converted into a huge burying ground
during th? efforts of the French to
build the canal by yellow fever and
other epidemic disease.- of th-1 tropics.
Even during th? first y *ars of Amerif
"i\ occupation the death toll from disease
wa.s high. The work of Col. Gorr;
