Washington, Nov. 7.-Reports re
ceived up to nine o'clock to-night Indi
cate that the next senate will have forty
democrats, forty-one republicans and
lsx populists, while the attitude of the
successor of Benator Harris, of Ten
nessee, Is still in doubt. In this classl
flcatlon, Benators Stewart and Jones, of
Nevada, who were elected by republl
cans, but who have announced their sep
aration from their party, and Gov. Till
man, who will doubtless be elected by
the so-called independent democrats .f

placed in the populist column. Tillman
will probably vote with the democrat.

When Chairman Babcock, of the re
publican congressional committee, left
the republican headquarters to-night
he said reports received during the day
give the republicans 230 out of 35H mem
bers of the house, beyond peradventure,
while there was a possibility of secur
ing twenty-seven additional members.
Mr. Babcock also stated his Informa
tion leads him to believe there is a pos
sibility of securing three more mem
bers from Alabama, two from Illinois,
one from Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Ne
braska and South Carolina each, three
more from Minnesota. two from Ohio,
two from Pennsylvania, three from Mis
souri, one from Arkansas, three from
Louisiana, and three from Texas. If
these claims are realised it will give
the republicans 257 members, or a ma
jority of ninety-nine members.
Denver, Nov. 7.-Gov. Waite concedes
the defeat of his party. "To my mind,"
said he, "it provesuconclusively that the
Money power has dominated this elec
tion from beginning to end, and the
democratic party is most responsible
from the fact that they voted the re
pubican ticket instead of their own.
made up my mind several years ago
that there was only ome wap to resee
the country from conditions now ex
iating, and for which the money power
is responsible, and that was to flght
them tooth and nail. Consequently, I
have never made any bones of declar
ing my opinion of their course and ad
vocating that the controlling power
which they have exercised over all legis
lation be destroyed. I believed the in
fluence of Wall street must be removed
from congress."
When asked if he thought the popu
list party would ever regain power, the
governor replied: "I believe it will, but
it may not be for some time. I do not
know exactly how it will be done. I
think we will have to do it right over
their heads, however. I advocate this
being done In a peaceful manner, if pos
sible, peaceful revolution. Of course, I
)elieve the ballot is the proper method
to be employed. But this has not proved
efficacious in this state."
San Francisco, Nov. 7.-About half
the entire vote of California has been
counted and the result indicates that
James Budd, democratic candidate for
governor, has a plurality of between
6,000 and 7,000 votes. Hils plurality in
this city will probably amount to 10.000.
With the exception of supreme court
Justices and comptroller, sufficient le
turns have been received to ind!clte
which party has hten successful with
the remainder of the state ticket. The
republicans have elected one supreme
court justice, Ilennshaw, and the demo
crats the other two, Temple and IBridge
ford, the latter being elected & fill an
unexpired term. Colgan, republican
nominee for comptroller, is also elected
by perhaps 6,000 plurality.
Returns now indicate that the repub
licans have elected six of seven con
gretssm". Maguire, democrat, In the
Fourth .Atrict, is re-elected, while there
is little doubt that Camenettl. present

Topeka, Kan., Nov. 7.-The republi

The fire department was called out
twice last evening. The first alarm was
caused by a fire in Ham Lee's wash
house, on State street. The fire origi
nated from a defective flue. Thu loss
was very small.
A small blaze was noticed under the
sidewalk in the rear of Wise & (ood
kind's block, corner of Main and Sixth
avenue. The alarm was turned in while
the great parade was moving up Main
street. The fire apparatus was turned
down Main. but, owing to the vast
throng,. the tv ms we*re switched into
Wall street and down Pa'rk avenue. The
fire had been extinguished bel'ore the
department reached the place.

at no time was there any t'lvl~laty as to
which aide would receive thi most votes.
I'p to two weeks ago Anaconda ap
peared to have a strong lead, but the
switch commenced then, and there was
a strong tide ioward Helena. This was
rhecked somewhat the day previous to
election and Anaconda rallied a little
on election day. Excepting two small
precincts, capital returns are now in.
and give Anaconda 148 majority in Mis
soula county. which was a very heavy
fall from calculatidns made by the lo

figured on getting at least 700 majority
for their city.

our readers to be patient while some of

for, In this otice,. 4:1,3.3 votes. These
give Anaconda a majority of 196. There
is a West Side vote amounting to about
