AFTER THE ENGLISH IDEA.
A Proposal for an txlla Session of the
Nkw York, Nov. 11. Anion;; the imme
3iate consequences of the verdict at the
polls the strong probability of the Fifty
second congress being cl!"'l in extra ses
sion immediately after inauguration is al
ready disc-usse-1 here. An extra session of
the senate is always called at the liegin
ning of a new administration, to confirm
the new cabinet oflicers and the new diplo
matic representatives of the United States
abroad. But the present election having
turned on questions of domestic policy it is
thought by experienced political leaders of
U parties that an extra session of both
bouses of congress will almost inevitably
result. Secretary of the Treasury Foster,
amongst others, believes this. The party,
he says, challenged the judgment of the
country on the McKinley biil, and the re
mit must be accepted as the expression of
(he will of the peonle that a different policy
shall be put into effect. Kx-Secretary Bay
ard writes to a friend here to like pfiWt.
adding that the people will expect this to
De aone without unnecessary delay.
More Opinions if the Same Sort.
A telegram from Chicago gives tue fol
lowing from The Herald of thnt, city:
"There is no serious question in any quar
terns to what Tuesday's popular verdict
menus. It means that McKinleyism is
most emphatically condemned. .Mr. Fos
ter, Harrison's secretary of t he treasury.ex- j
presscsine truth when lie say: 'The party
challenged the judgment of the count rv on
Ihe McKinley bill and the verdict i!r.it
be aecepte.1 as the will of the p.ople that a
diffen-nt policy sh-dl be adopted.'
''Gcne-ial l'alnn-r. Mr. Springer and other
leading Democrats express ihentelves to
the same effect. H is "thewiil of t:c people j
thata diflfeveiit policy shall be adopted' j
with reipeet to the larift'. m:d ail I'vino-
srat.s who have been chosen to r. ;n -nt i
the people in cot ; or in tin White j
House must respect that will without lies- i
nation, without tunni:; i:ml wit limit de
lay." Wht 4'ollgf'c-x sli;,llil to.
Then The Herald Mati-s i.s view .f what
congress should do: '-IVnrc-w need te t sit
all summer, or tntvr upon ihe work of g --n
eral tariff revision. It can repeal ; l,e Mc
Kinley act, except us to sugar, whi h may
well be reserved as 11 source i;f reveiri
future in c;ise of necessity: put wch
oiner raw maicnais on t nc tnv n-t. rc iicc

the manner indicated by the sever.. 1 hoti-e
bills of the last session, insirnct the ways
and mains commit tee topros:vitte the wo.-k
of general revision during the recess, and
THlk About the rahinrt.
A telegram from Washington says: "Al
len B. Morse, who resigned from t he iti
supreme liench of Michigan to run lorgov-,
prnor, and did so at the personr.l request of
Don M. Dictiuson, is prominently men-,
tioned as Mr. Cleveland's choice for secre-"
tary of war. Judge Morse lias u good rec
ord as a soldier und is uuduubtedly well
equipped for the oftiee. I.yman J. G.-ige
should never be left out in the making of
a cabinet slate, and should be put down as
secretary of thetreasury. His povi ion is
peculiar, in that President Harrison
thought at one time seriously of asking
mm into his cabinet. J udge uoudy is an
other Chicagoan spoken of as likely to
come to Washington. He is an original
Cleveland man, aud has never wavered in
his nllee-innce to the president-elect. Will
iam C. Whitney is also slated for some po
sition." Will Leave the Places Tacant.
President Harrison, it is stated, has de
termined to leave unfilled the vacant mis
sions to Italy, Portugal, and Switzerland;
also the assistant secretaryships of the
treasury vacated by Messrs. Cronnse and
Nettleton. Ex-Chairman Tom Carter, it is
thought, may return to the land office
which he vacated to take charge of the cam
paign, and hold it for the remaining hun
dred days of Harrison's administration, if
he so desires. It is stated that with the
single exception of Secretary Rusk all the
members of the cabinet had intimated to
tbe president their intention of resigning
on the 4th of March; bene their plana will
not be materially disarranged. The proba
bility is discussed of the president paying a
visit to his daughter and son-in-law, Mr.
and Mrs. McKee, in Boston, before return
ing to Indianapolis and the practice of law.
FREE SILVER TO CONTROL.

Nkw York, Nov. 1L More than forty
eight hoars after the polls have closed it is
till impossible to giye the status of the
several parties lu tbe i irty-tnira congress
I oilicially. The developments of the day
j tend . to confirm to the point of absolute
certainty the statement that the balance
! or power in tue next senate will be held by
j the third party, although by a narrow mar
gin. I He .Democrats will gam senators in
New York, Wisconsin, Wyoming and Cal
ifornia, giving them forty-three. Republi
cans will return a successor to Senator
Paddock from Nebraska and also to Sena
tor Perkins, from Kansas, although the
legislature in this state is still claimed by
the Farmers' Alliance. The legislatures of
Minnesota and .Michigan have Republican
Only Forty-Two Republican.
The Republican strength in the senate is
thus reduced to forty-two, leaving to Sena
tors I'effer Kyle and Stewart (who will
succeed himself from Nevada), the power
to control the organization by alliance

party assisted by the Democrats have cer
tainl.w elected the Weaver electors, the
euur Stat ticket and efurvafcui&n-afr-large
by a majority or M Jal 4.U0U, This
s practically conceded by tue Republicans.
3The Republicans have elected Case Brod
irick in the First district, E. H. Fnnston in
the Second and Charles Curtis in the
Fourth. The Popnlists have elected T.
J. Hudson in thtf Third district; John
Davis in the Fifth;' W. M.Baker in the

In the legislature'.Uie Populists have
elected twenty-three senators mid the Re
publicans seventeen. In the house the
Popplists have fifty-eight. Democrats two
lUidJUepuhlieans sixty-live. The two Dem
ccitti are pledged to vote for the Repub
lican candidate fo- United States senator,
having been elected with the aid of Re
publicans. This gives the Republicans a
majority of three on joint Iwllot and in
sures the election of a Republican to suc
cessor to Bishop W. IYrUaiO-fr
OHIO STILL IW.OpUBT.
&pubUcaas Claim the State by 1,400
COLCMB06, Nov. li. That Ohio is saved
from the wreck is j&Sm by the Repnbli
CMSjfttbasit Democratic concession. Es
timates by Chairman Dick give Samuel M.
Taylor and the entire Republican state
ticket a plurality of over 1.400. Fifty-fire
counties have officially reported. The
other thirty-three are accounted for by
chairmen. The Democrats insist that an
official count must decide.
Rich Kleeted In Michigan.
Detroit, Nov. 11. Complete returns
from seventy -four of the eighty-five eoun
ties give Rich, Republican candidate for
governor, 127.846, and Morse, Democrat.
114,640. The Republicans have seven of the
twelve congressmen and the next senator
will ba a Raruihllran. Both houses of the
legislature have been won by the Repub
licans. They have a majority of at least
seven or eight in the senate and twenty
eight in the house. Later returns increase
their majority on joint ballot.
Indiana 10,000 Democratic.
Indianapolis, Nov. 11. The canvassing
boards throughout the state met at the
county seats yesterday and the official fig
ures of Tuesday's election will at once be
certified to the secretary of state. As far
as reports have been received they make
no material changes from the majorities
heretofore reported, and it is quite evident
that the Democratic majorityor Cleveland
will reach 10,000, the figures claimed by
the party leaders before the election.
The Returns In inseonsla. :
Milwaukee, Wis., Not. 1L It was
learned at Chairman Wall's office last
evening that the returns so far as received
show a majority for Peck of 8.47C The re
turns that are to come will not probably all
be in for two or three days, and it is. not
expected that they will disturb Peck's'ma
jority. For congress: Democrat Banrig,
Mitchell, Brickner, Wells, Barnes, and
Lynch. Reoublicans Cooper, - Babcock,
Shaw, and Haugen.
The Result in Alabama.
Birmingham, Ala., Nov. 11. It is now
positively known that the following con
gressmen, all Democrats, are elected in Ala
bama: First, Clark; Second, Stalling; Third
Oates; Fourth, Bobbins; Fifth, Cobb; Sixth,
Bankhead; Seventh, Denson; Eighth,
Wheeler: Ninth, Turpin. Official returns
from all but Ave counties give a majority
for Cleveland of 48,315, which is a big in
crease over the state election in August.
Nebraska Probably for Harrison. i
Omaha, Oct. 11 Complete returns from
thirty-two counties out of eighty-nine in
Nebraska and partial returns from as many
more indicate that Harrison will carry the
state by about lS00- For governor, Crounse,
Rep., and Van Wyck, lnd., are so close to
gether that probably only the official count
an decide." The Republican state ticket,
except governor, will probably be elected
by about 5,000 plurality, j
North Dakota Goes Fusion.
Grand Foi.es, N. D., Nov. li. Later re
turns, mostly official, give Shortridge,
fusion candidate Cr governor, 1,680 major
ity, and the rest of the fusion state ticket
and Weaver electors slightly less. Secre
tary W. A. Joy, of the state Democratic!
committee, claims the state legislature by
from five to ten majority, ensuring the
election of a Democrat to succeed United
States Senator Casey.
Republicans Lose California.
San Francisco, Nov. ll. As the returns
come in there is nothing left for Republi
cans. California will be . Democratic by at
least 2,000 and the legislature will elect a
Democratic senator to succeed Felton. The
city fight isn't decided yet, but from the
gains made by Ellert, non partisan, he will
prolwbly win, beating O'Donnell, the anti
Chincseman, by a few hundred votes.
'West Virginia All Democratic.
Wheeling, Nov. 11. All doubts have
been cleared regarding the complexion of
the congressional delegation from this
state. Dovener, Republican candidate in
the Wheeling district, last night conceded
the re-election of Pendleton, the delegation
being solidly Democratic.
Those Texas Populists.
ACSTIN, Nov. 11. Cleveland's majority
