proposed extra session of congreos it is now
pointed out that the same cry has been
raised at previous elections ever since Gar-
Held became president hi 1880, but an extra
session has not been called. It is also said
that Cleveland is opposed to extra sessions,
and it is also asserted that he will have too
mueh to do making changes in offices to
warrant attention to congress. It is learned
that some of the leading tariff reformers
are favorine an nveraire mliction of about

A Piece of Political Strategy.
This promised move is a piece of ; o-called
political strategy. The effects of new legis
lation, it is feared, will be folt adversely on
the congressional election two years hence
if a law should go into effect before that
time. Having passed it, the Democratic
party can lay claim to having fulfilled its
pledge to the people of revising the tariff,
and claim that as the law will not go into
operation until after the congn-ssion.:l elec
tion two years hence, the Republican party
cannot make an issue o
the tariff law or !
its results. Meanwhile the Republicans
will be left without an issue. It is doubt-

newly elected Fifty-third congress is apt to , nchang:d, but its jm-sonnel is not. in the
wrouiHiiiuomm me emergency. Xhe
condition can lie stated in a few words.
Looking for a Deficiency.
The total appropriations authorized by
the late session 1 of-congress for the'figeU
yea ending June.. :?0 next,: together with
the permanent appropriation's, amount to
ITrftT.OOO.lSH, while the revenues estimated
by the treasury departnient for the same
fiscal year are computed at only t4rT,336.
350 thus foreshadowing a deficit of $52,000,
000.' . But in addition to this then- is every
prolwbility that there will be a big de
ficiency on account of pensions, even on the
basis of the appropriations granted by the
late session of congress for t he present iiscal
.Amounting; to About 85,000,000.
Cleveland, when he takes charge of the
government on the 4th of March, will be
confronted with a depleted treasury, and.
in anmtion, with a budget of outstanding
fixed liabilities amounting to at least $75,
000,000 or f8.",noo,lM. Should an extra ses
sion of th3 new congress l.i railed to revi-e
the tariff and devise i.t w means of revjj
nueJthe very fact of its sitting for that
purpose will serve as a notice to all
importing interests at. home and abroad to
wait liefore making further ext-nsive im
portations until nil need schedules are
fomvulaUtl and put into execution, so that
the result will be to greatly reduce for a
time, at least, the government receipts
f rofn customs.
An Extreme Partisan View.
From au extreme partisan standnoint
there are further reasons for calling an. cx-
tra session. It is said that the president
has decided to extend tint civil service regu
lations so as to include the bureau of en
graving and printing and the office of pub
lic printer. Such a move would leave the
Democrats little pntrona;ce at their dis
posal when they take possession of the gov
ernment next March.
Business Views at Chicago.
Chicago, Nov. 12. A number of busi
ness men in this city have been interviewed
regarding the proposed extra session of con
gress to repeal the McKinley bill, etc. 11.
H. Higinbotham is opposed to it. There is
no reason, he says, why the De.norracy
should be preci pittite. Lyman J. Gago
thinks an extra session would depress
business, and that the impoi-ters and mer
chants should be consulted. W. T. Raker
advocates gradual tariff reform. 'Walter
T. Chandler, of McVeagh & Co., says: kl
believe in a low tariff, but congress should
bring it about gradually. We want no
sweeping changes. They would certainly
injure the business interests of the coun
try." Bayard Hadn't Heard of It.
Wilmington, Del.. Nov. 12 Ex-Secretary
of State Bayard was yesterday asked
whether he urged the calling of a special
session of congress to revise the tariff, as
was stated in a Washington dispatch. He
replied: "While I agree that McKinleyisin
cannot too soon be thoroughly reformed
and ended, yet as a mat ter of fact I never
even heard of a special session of congress
to be called for that purpose."
SOME MORE BELATED RETURNS.
Figures from Kansaa, Montana, Indiana
and Other State.
Beleka, Mont, Nov. 12. Unofficial fig
ures or the legislature show: Senate
Democrats, 10; Republicans, 5; one In
doubt. House Democrats, 25; Republi
cans, 23; Populists, 4; doubtful, S. One of
tne Populists was indorsed by the Demo
crats and is pledged to vote for a Demo
crat for United States senator. The vote
In doubtful district is bo cloee tha-. it will
take the omcial count to decide. Giving
the Republicans all four, the Democrats
stiu nave a majority of 1 on ioint ballot
Ihis insures the selection of a Democrat to
succeed benator Banders. Enough returns
re in to show a Republican maioritv on
the presidential, tckejt, congressman and
all the kstnte tlcKet except attorney gen
eral ana Blake for chief justice of the su
preme court, who was beaten by Pember
ton, DeruociYit and Populist.
Further Estimates From Kansas.
Kansas City, Nov. 12. As nearly as can
be ascertained before the official count is
made the Republicans will control the leg
islature in Kansas by a majority of 3 on
joint ballot, which insures the election of a
fctpublican to succeed Senator Perkins.
This majority is secured with the help of
two Llemoerats referred to in these dis
patches yesterday. In the Second Con
gressional district the uiarirfn of Funston,
Republican, has been whittled down to
about 50 votes, and Moore, the defeated
Fusionist candidate, has already an-

Hlo not concede this, as there ure fifteen or
or twenty small counties to hear from yet.
That Close Ohio Ticket.
Cleveland, Nov. 12. The Leader has
I received bulletins of official majorities from
all but six counties in Ohio. According to
these figures the Republican ticket now
nas over i.000 plurality, and should have
grcAiiiau in ine ium aistnci is very
close, the Democratic nominee not having
more than six majority, if elected at all.
IjATER. The Democrats last night
claimed the state in its entirety, except as
to one Republican elector. The Republic-
ans yesterday morning claimed a complete
victory by l.Wnl plurality. Last night they
l:iimtl it by 81)0, having dropped 1,000.
The official count must decide.
Estimates from Minnesota.
St. Pacl, Nov. 12. Almost complete re
turns from seventy-two out of eighty coun-
ties give Nelson, Republican, a plurality of
12,168, and it is believed full returns will

j Democrat, whose election w;i announced
; in earlier dispatches. The senate, as well
as the house, remains in Democrat ic hands.
1'uiier Returns from Texas.
Galveston. Tex.. Nov! 12. Fuller re
turns from the state confirm the estimated
election of Hogg-by 50,0u0 to 7.".000 plural
ity. The rext legislature, both house and
Benate, will lie overwhelmingly Democratic.
The l'opulists wiil have less than half a
i doxrTi senators out of t uirty-one. ami less
; than twAity of a total of 1' in thehoti.se.
i There will be t wo or three liepiiblieans in
; the lower house, but none in the tipper.
I While complete returns are not in there is
i no longer any reasonable doubt that all the
I Texas Democrat ic congressional candidates
: are elecUKl.
Nebraska Is Still Might Slow.
' Omaha. Nov. 13. Soventy-threecounties
of Nebraska out of ninety give Harrison 71,
6!7, Cleveland 21,r,2, Weaver CS.613. The
same counties give Crounse (Rep.) for gov
ernor C9,Co4, Morton (Dem.) r38,M5,
, Vanwyck (I'op.) 57.760. The election in
I the First congressional district is still in
i doubt. The Republicans lack two mem-
; ,Krs of controlling the legislature on joint
ballot. The whole Republican state ticket is
elected and three congressmen.
" Latest from the lloosier State.
Indiasai ous, Nov. 12. Compete re
turns from eighty-eight counties in Indiana
show a net Democratic gain over 1838 of
10,300, making the Democratic plurality
thus far 7,952. The remaining five coun
ties will probably increase this 300.
What It Haa Cost Gilroy.
Kkw YoitK, Nov. 12. Mayor-elect Gil
roy yesterday filed with the county clerk a
sworn statement, in accordance with the
law of the expenses of his election. Mr.
Gilroy places the total cost at $2,343.56.
SPEAKER CRISP'S COMMENTS.
What Harrison's Defeat and Cleveland's
ATLASTA, Ga., Nov. 12. Speaker Crisn.
of the house of representatives, speaking on !
the result of Tuesday s election, said:
"The defeat of Harrison removes a dark
cloud from our horizon. The threat of the
force bill has had a tendency to paralyze
our industries and domestic commerce.
Capital, always timid, would not seek in
vestment in the south where there was the
prospect of the passage of a law whicn
would disrupt existing conditions here.
Cleveland's election dispels the cloud, and
we may now hope for a restoration of con
fidence and a renewal of business pros
Kecessariea to Be Cheaper.
"Cleveland's election means that the peo
ple want a reduction of taxation. The Re
publican policy of high prohibitive tariff
has been demonstrated to the people as
most injurious to their interest and they
want no more of it. If we have the senate,
and it looks as though we might have t,
the Democratic party will enact such a
tariff law as will raise an ample fund for
the economical administration of the gov
ernment and at the same time cheapen to
the people all the necessaries of life."
Think Kepublicanlsm Dead,
New York, Nov. 12. Con gressman-elect
J. C. Talbott, of the Third Maryland dis
trict, who was a member of the Forty sixth,
Forty-seventh, and Forty-eighth congresses,
was in town yesterday. He attrihutml
Cleveland's victory to the protest of the peo
ple against protection and the menace of a
force bilL "I think," he said, "that it means

The Whole Country Did It.
New Yoijk, Nov. 12. Referring to the
Republican defeat Chauncey M. Depew
said yesterday that it could not be attrib
uted to any one person or party of persons.
New York alone did not effect the result.
It was the whole country. The people
wanted a change of policy. Depew said
that the Homestead strike also affected the
voting. He also denied the statement that
either Frick or Carnegie contributed to the
McPherson for the Cabinet.
Philadelphia, Nov. 12. It was an
nounced here yesterday by a local Demo
crat who is in touch with Chairman Harrity
and other leading memlers of the party
that Senator John R. McPherson, of New
lereey, will be the secretary of the treasury
In the Cleveland cabinet. The senator's re
lations with Mr. Cleveland have always

tion, when New Jersey's Democratic atti
tude was a matter of concern, he succeeded

The senate remains the same as stated in
