Senate Majority Assured, but
House Uncertain.
18 Congressional Districts Yet
to Hear From.

Utah, Republican State, Gives
Wilson 22,000 Margin.
New York, Nov. 9. Returns on the
election tor members of congress re
ceived up to 1 o'clock today showed
212 Democrats and 208 Republicans
elected with sixteen districts not yet
accounted for. Seven of these sixteen
districts are Democrat In the present
congress and nine are Republican.
Should each keep to its present politi
cal affiliation the count would stand:
Democrats 219. Republicans 212.
This would Rive the Democrats a ma
jority of seven over the 212 Republi
cans, and four representatives of other
parties in the house.
Returns on the senate fight are
rearer complete. They tend to show
the Democrats still in control there by
a probable majority of twelve com
pared to their present majority of six
teen. '
One of the bis features of the con
gressional fight is the seeming elec
tion of a woman for the first time
in the nation's history. Miss Jeanette
Rankin, who ran as an independent
Republican against Harry B. Mitchell,
Republican, appears to have been ac
corded the honor by Montana.

Salt Lake. Utah. Nov. 9. President
"Wilson, from estimates based on re
turns from twenty-five of the twenty
eight counties in Utah has carried the
state by a plurality of more than 22,
000. Incomplete returns from the
ty-fivo counties give Wilson 63,687,
Hughes 41,463.
Wilson May Lose One of Seven Elec
toral Votes in Washington.
The death of a Democratic candi
date for presidential elector may cause
the defeat of President Wilson. At
present the returns indicate that Wil
son has 266 electoral votes and Hughes
243, with the seven Washington elec
toral votes for Wilson,
Should. Wilson carry Minnesota he
would have a total of 266 votes, the
number needed to win. But If he
lost one in Washington, due to the
death of the elector, Hughes would
be one vote ahead.
On the other hand, if Wilson carried
California and New Mexico, or If he
carried either Minnesota or California
and North Dakota, he would win de
spite the fact that he may lose one of
the seven electoral votes in Washington.

The Dual System.
The generosity of the Topeka Com
mercial club In volunteering more
i..oney than usual for the entertain
ments added to that of the association
has made this year's convention a
particularly strong drawing card for
th teachers. It has enabled the dual
system of addresses, thus affording
every teacher an opportunity to hear
the big speakers.

elder the caliber and the variety of
talent represented in tnis program,
commented L. W. Mayberry of Wich
ita, president of the association, "they
must conclude that there is instruc
tion and inspiration for every teacher
from the remotest rural school to the
heads of our great institutions.
The teachers listened to addresses
at the city auditorium and the high
school auditorium. A patriotic drill in
which five thousand Topeka children
will participate, will be given on tne
state house grounds Friday afternoon

indications of the defeat of Senator I.
M. Mahin were changed when he came

majorities and may have won the elec

Stafford. If returns ultimately give
the election to Senator Mahin, seven

been returned.
Claim California by 1,200.
Facing the certainty of a veritable
"eyelash finish," Republican and Dem
ocratic party managers today revised
their earlier claims of sweeping plu
ralities for their candidates in Califor
nia. Vice Chairman Max Kupler of
the Republican state committee said
early today:
"I expect a plurality of from 1.20a
to 1.400 for Hughes in California, This
is based on the vote counted so far
and on conservative estimates on
counties where the count is not com
plete. North of the Tehachapi, Wil
son has a plurality of 30,000, but this
will be overcome by a Hughes plural
ity of 31,000 to 31,200 in southern Cal
ifornia." The comment of O. K. Cushing,
Democratic state chairman, was:
"I consider California safe for Wil
son." ine greatest interest ever shown
here in a presidential contest was evi-
dent thruout California today. News
paper offices were everywhere be

clerks making up official counts in
