working majority in the Senate.
The accession of tin so Progressive
Rcbuhlicans tu the Democratic
side on important measures
will lvave the old line regulars in
the position of a hdpLss minoi
ity, capable of obstructing, but
not of preventing the realization
of the policies of the new admi.i
istration. Furthermore, an anal
ysis of the senatorial situation
shows that the D.mocratic majority
will probably be increased
during the second half of the Wilson
administration. Those Democrats
of the Senate, whose terms
expire two wvek hence, conic
from states which arc almost certain
to remain Democratic. Except
in two or three instances,
they are all from Southern states
which have ahvaxs gone Democratic,
while those Democrats
from Northern state-. whose
terms expire in 1013. from present
indication, have excellent
chances of re-election.
On the other hand there are
half a dozen or more Republicans
whose terms will expire two years
hence who come from states
which are now strongly Democratic,
and which, under normal
condition, are likelv to remain

st Fur instance, such
as P.radley of Kentucky,
I'ristow of Kansas, Durton of
Ohio, and Root of Xew York represent
states which, if their suc
cessors were to be chosen now,
would send Democrats to the
Senate. Moreover. I'randagec. of
Connecticut, Galling. r of Xew
Hampshire, and Cummings of
Iowa represent states which now
hae strong Democratic tendencies.
The re-organization of the new
Senat.' will doubtless witness the
passing of the venerable and respected
Cullom of Illinois, who is
slate1 to ictire after fift) -seven
ears of public service, thirty of
which were spent in the United
States Senate. Although L. i.
Sherman, the former speaker of
the Illinois House of Represent
atives, deieated him lor a sixtn
romination. in the Republican
primaries. Sherman will, himself,
be denied a scat in the Senate
through the failure of the voter-to
chose a Republican legislature.
On the same dat. the curtain
will be run down on the political
career of XV. Murray Crane, the
silent junior member from Massachusetts,
by many considered the
leal, although not the titular lead
er of the present Senate. Crane
heard the lmittcrings of discontent
and announced his retirement
before the upheaval last Novem
ber. Crane is an uncompromising
standpatter and reactionary.
Aloi.g with him will go Charles
( urtis of Kansas, likewise con
spicuous as a standpatter, but a
Republican of ability and particul
arly skilled as a parliamentarian.
Curtis fell in the primary fight
and was trod upon bv the hob
nailed boots of Stubbs, one of the
seven little Governors who misinformed
T. R. that the people
again wanted him to become
I resident, and in turn Stubbs, despite
"his million-dollar bank account,
succumbed .to a Democrat,
'vho will succeed Curtis.
George Peabody YVetmore of
Rhode Island after practically
three terms at the "Me Too" of
'"Pioss" Aldrich will no longer per
form his public service by re
sponding to the roll call. Likewise
P.urnham of "Xew Hampshire
after two terms in which he
failed to make any material impression
upon the Senate or to
place his imprint upon legislation,
will return to private life. Gamble
likewise, after two terms, returns
to South Dakota to join the
ranks of former statesman.
Of the one term Republicans
who will retire there are Dixon of
Montana, Bourne of Oregon,
Guggenheim of Colorado, Richards
of Dcleware and Brown of
Nebraska, each of them, with the
xccption of Brown, to be succeeded
by a Democrat. Dixon
leaped into the limelight in the
recent presidential campaign as
the manager of the Bull Moose
outfit and as a result will now go
into political eclipse. AH the
wealth of the Smelter Trust could
not return Simon Guggenheim to
the Senat , and for the next six
years his seat will be held by
jc hn F. Shafroth, the present
Goernor of Colorado.

of the so-called "second elective
term," for Theodore Roosevelt,
advocate of popular elections

fell a victim of his own hobby,
the populace of his state having
twice refused to indorse him, and
his successor will be Dr. Harry
Lane, formerly Mayor of Portland,
a Democrat. Briggs and
Richardson figured in the Senate
only to the extent of h.lping to
make up the Republican majority.
On the Democratic side Bailey

succeeded bv Democrats, each of

In the House of Representatives,
even with the present largv
Democratic majority, the changes
will be sweeping, for the recent
el.ction carried into retirement'
many of the most prominent Republican
leaders who successfully
weathered the storm of two years
ago, but who were unable to survive
last November's Democratic
tornado. Most notable among the
absentees when the Sixty-third
Congress is organized will be
"L'ncle Joe" Cannon, whose service
in tlr. House covers a period
of thirty -eight ears, somewhat
more than one-half of his life, and
who, for four terms was Speaker of
that both. Only once bco:e
since he cut. red the House, in
187 1. was he unsuccessful. That
wa.s in the great Democratic landslide
of 1S90. when he went down
to deieat. It was the tight on
Cannonism begun a littL moic
than three years ago that started
the movement which led to the
( vcrthrow of the Republican party.

which the Republican party stood
