New York. Nov. 7. The national house
of rcpresentarix-es at present consists of 234
Democrats, 8: Republicans, and 8 Farmers'
Alliance men. There is one vacancy in the
California delegation (Republican) occa
sioned by the resignation of Joseph McKen
na; one in that of Maryland (Democrat), oc
casioned by the election of Representative
Gibson to the United States senate, and
three others ( Democrats! caused by deaths.
This overwhelming Democratic majority
every one expecs to see reduced by the re
sults of the election tomorrow, but to what
extent the managers are just as widely di
vergent in their views as in respect to the
vote to be cast in the electoral college for
president and vice president.
emcjratK Claim a Majority.
At the Democratic headquarters the to
tal number of Democratic representatives
whose election is claimed as sure is lss. or
only four more than a majority of the next
house, whose membership v. '.Il numlier -'d;.
This statement includes six from Alabama,
three from Conneeticiit. txx-o from Massa
chusetts, six from Michigan, five from
New Jersey, twenty one from Xew York,
six from North Carolina, sex en from Penn

Virginia, two from West Virginia, and
six from Wisconsin. ti. coii'-eded

estimated number of these latter xx-s

battled for by the two great panic's.
How ItepiibXicaii l-tjrure It Out.
The cluims of the Repuplican congres
sional managers are net so definite as those
of their opponents. The Republican eon-gre-sional
campaign committee say they
are certain of only 142 Republic an repre
scntatix"e and i:iS Democrats leaving,
after deduct inn twenty-four Farmer's Al
liance district, lifty-two districts in ihe
doubtful column. This claim includes
lifteen representalix-es from Xcxv York,
fifteen from Ohio, thirteen from Illinois,
three from Indiana, sex-en from Kansas,
two from Kent ncky. one from lxuisiana.
ten from Massachusetts, six from Michi
gan, one from Missouri, tliree from Ne
braska, two from Nexv Hampshire, two
from New Jersey and scvenuvn from
iNtrittM Put Iloxvn as Ioultfill.
All but one district in North Carolina is
in the doubtful column, or that of the
Farmer's Alliance: all of West Virginia are
doubtful, and sex-en districts in Pennsyl
vania are doubtful. There were fifty-sexa n
representatives i-bs ted to the Fifty-second
congress by less than 1,000 plurality fifteen
Republicans and forty-two Democrats. o
cannot be argued, hoxx-exer, respecting
t!esp, that a change of 500 x-otes or less in
cacti of the several district-s would rex erse
the result of the election of two years ago,
for the reason that many of the districts,
iM'cause of new apportionments under the
last census, no longer are in the same form
that they were then. Rut it is no doubt
true that as many of the new districts on
the basis of the rate of that year areas
close noxv as those were then.
MEMSERS OF THE SENATE.
The Republicans admit that the Farmers'
Alliance may gain the Nevada senatorship,
but say thex- are chasing rainboxx-s when
they claim 'Nebraska, Washington, Wyo
ming and Montana.

What all the talk alout deputy marshals !

been so much trouble already. When there ,

his department will do its duty and see
the observance of the law. Relative to the
United States su perx-isors. marshals, etc.,
he says they are acting under national au
thority and. he thinks, to protect the integ
rity of the ballot box. Any violation of
Iaxv on their part will, he does not doubt,
be promptly punished,
Still. There's Something to lo.
But if this election passes off peacefully
one thing should be done, and that is to
get up a case that would take the whole
election law liefore the supreme court. It
is not a satisfactory state of affairs where
the official head of a great party just before
the election says practically that certain

Caprice of Ann Arbor "Co-Edi."
Ann Akbok, Mich., Nov. 7. During the
prex-alent rainy weather dozens of the col
lege girls have appeared on the streets in a
new "rainy day dress." The skirt is plain
and tight titling, but the striking feature
is that it reaches only about halfway from
the knee to the ankle. To make np for
this gap the girls wear long gaiters and
can now splash through the mud as well
as the boys. They have been threatening
to adopt "t his suit since last summer.
