New York, Oct. 25. The latest dis patches received from the West ern states which have been consid ered doubtful make it certain that a large majority of the electoral vote will be cast for the Republican can didates. Chairman Hanna's most re cent and careful estimate puts $02 votes in the sure Republican column as follows: Connecticut.. California Delaware 3 Indiana 15 Iowa 13 Kentucky .13 Illinois 2i Kanias 10 llalne i Massachusetts ... 15 Michigan 14 Minnesota V Maryland 8 New Jersey 10 Nebraska 8 New York IS New Hampshire.. 4 Oregon 4 Ohio 23 Rhode Ilanil 4 Pennsylvania 32 South Dakota 4 Vermont 4 Wisconsin 12 North Dakota 3 West Virginia.... 6 Washington 4 Wyoming i Total SO! He put these nine states in the doubt ful list: Idaho 3 Texas - IS Louisiana i Utah 3 Missouri 17 Virginia 12 Montana 8 North Carolina.... 11 Total (4 Tennessee 12 The states which he concedes to Bry an are: Alabama 11 Mississippi 9 Arkansas 8 Nevada 3 Colorado 4 South Carolina.... 9 Florida 4 Georgia 13i Total 61 Other observers are even more san guine than Mr. Hanna, and considers several of his doubtful states safely Republican. The same overwhelming vote which promises to carry McKinley triumphantly to the White house will certainly elect a house of representa tives with a Republican majority as large or larger than the present house, and the following analysis of the senate situation makes it evident that the Re publicans will have a working majority there, and that McKinley will have the support of both branches of congress in carrying out the promises of the St. Louis platform, THE PRESENT SENATE. The present senate consists of 89 members, 44 of whom are classed as Re publicans, 39 as Democrats and as Populists. But of the 44 Republicans, some held close relations with the sil ver men, and several of them were so extreme that they were willing to hold Up the government rather than surren der their own views. Senators Teller, Dubois, Mitchell, Squire, Pettigrew and Cannon have not always with safety been counted on as strict party men. Senators Clark, Carter.Wilson and Wol cott, after having fought for free coin ace, are now heartily supporting Mc Kinley. Of these eighty-nine men, thirty go out of office on March 4. Fourteen of them are Democrats, three Populists, eight strict Republicans, and four Tel lcr.Dubois, Mitchell and Squire are sil ver men, who have been classed as Re publicans, while Mr. Prltchard.of North Carolina, was elected as a Republican through fusion with Populists. Among the holdovers In the senate are thirty-one Republicans, excluding Mr. Dupont, of Delaware. Cannon, of I'tah; Clark, of Wyoming; Mantle, of Montana, and Pettigrew, of South Da kota, together with three Populists and twenty-two Democrats, also kept their seats. With the exception of Pettigrew it is perhaps unjust to count these sil ver men outside the Republican ranks. It is done only for the purpose of can vassing all possibilities and leaving out of the Estimate of the Republican strength every man whose loyalty to silver sentiment In his state might make him an obstructionist of Republi can policy. SEATS SURELY REPUBLICAN. These thirty-one rock-ribbed Repub licans will be reinforced by a sufficient number from the senators newly elect ed to give those who are at once gold men and Republicans a positive ma jority over silver and gold Democrats, Populists and silver Republicans com bined. Connecticut will send back Mr. Piatt, and New Hampshire Mr. Gal linger. Vermont has re-elected Mr. Morrill and Iowa Mr. Allison. Mr. For aker (ReD.) succeeds Mr. Brlce (Dem.) from Ohio, and Mr. Wellington (Rep.) Mr. Gibson (Dem.), of Maryland. Mr. Perkins, of California, a sound money Republican, Is certain to be returned. Then Senators Palmer, of Illinois; Hill, of New York, and Vilas, of Wisconsin, are as certain to be replaced by Re publicans as If the election had already taken place. Pennsylvania will elect a Republican successor to Mr. Camer on and Washington will doubtless send a Republican to succeed Mr. Squire. Mr. Voorhees, of Indiana, will give way to a Republican. So, here are thirteen Republicans to be added to the thirty-one Arm hold overs. They will give the party 44 votes, without counting any possibly doubtful state. DEMOCRATIC STATES. Democratic senators will undoubted ly come from Alabama, Arkansas. Florida, Georgia, Louisiana and South Carolina to reinforce the twenty-two Democratic hold-overs. Colorado Idaho and Nevada, with Senators Tel ler. Dubois and Jones, or their suc cessors, may be conceded to the Pop ocrats. Then there are North Caro lina, Oregon, Utah, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Delaware, South Dakota and North Dakota, In which the Republi cans need to win only two senators to give them an absolute majority of the senate. Independent of any silver com bination, even could It Include men who have formerly been extreme all verltles but who are now supporting McKinley. One senator from these states will give the Republicans con trol with the casting vote of the vice president. Failure of fusion between Democrats and Poullsts on the state ticket In Mis souri promises a Republican successor to Mr. Vest, even If Bryan should car ry the state, which now seems problem atical. The Republicans now feel cer tain of carrying Kansas for McKinley, and If so will replace the Populist, Peffer, with a good Republloan. There is every reason to hope that Kyle, the Populist from South Dakota, will be retired and his place taken by a sound money Republican, and Mr. Hans brought or some other Republican will come from North Dakota. The Ken tucky U-!r'ature, which failed last ear le t r successor to Senator '' klum, holds over, but there are tncugh vacancies to be filled next week to make a Republlean majority on joint ballot possible, and with the electoral vote surely for -McKinley It la more than likely that the Republicans will gain the necessary votes. Either a Re publican or Sound Money Democrat will certainly be elected In Kentucky. The unfortunate faction fight in Dela ware alone kept Delaware from having Republican representation last winter, and that alone clouds the prospect for the next senate. Utah and North Caro lina are at present doubtful. Thus from nine states usually thought of as aav Ing Democratic or Populist leanings at least four may be relied upon to send Republicans to Washington. VOTES TO SPARE. States which will surely send Re publicans to the senate are: Vermont. Indiana. New Hampshire. Connecticut New York. Pennsylvania. Maryland. Ohio. Illinois. Wisconsin. Iowa. California. Washington. Total, 13. States in which the Republicans ex pect to control the legislatures are: Missouri. j Oregon. Kansas. North Dakota. South Dakota. Utah. Kentucky. Delaware. Nnrth Carolina. Total, . Being able to count upon at least thirty-one hold-overs, and fairly on thirty-three with the reasonable silver Republicans, with thirteen new senat ors surely Republican, alrrwst certain success in four other states, and five ; more offering promise of Republican I members, the rarty is In no danger of 1 being in the minority, i Thus It Is evident that every prob , ability points to Republican control of every branch of the government. The ; Republicans can hardly fall to have 46 senators out of the 90 which com 1 nrtae tha urjtiei house, evtn without the moderate sliver men, whose future loy alty there is no reason to question. They may even hope for a senate of 52 Republicans, 23 Democrats. 6 Populists ' and 3 holdover representatives from sll 1 ver states who ure of Republican lean ings. These tour are Messrs. Cannon, Mantle and Pettigrew. BRYAN ATTENDS CHURCH. Crowds Gather to View tbe Boy Orator at JiCksonvilleYellow Rib boos Pl.'otiful. Jacksonville, Ills.. Oct. 25. All church going Jacksonville turned out this morning to see Mr. and Mrs. William J. Bryan and during most of the day the residence of Dr. Hiram K. Jones, where they are Moping, was surround ed by curious people. It was in this old educational town, that Mr. Bryan spent six years of his life as a student. The candidate and his wife naturally anticipated a pleasant day In such famillur envorntnents and they spent a delightful Sunday, meeting old friends, and talking with them over their college days. Although Mr. and Mrs. Bryan did not reach Jacksonville until near 2 o'clock this morning many people had waited up to see them and to cheer the candidate.- But little rest had been allowed the nominee in that fast ride. He was awakened twice, the first time to make a midnight speeech to a big audience at Bluffs, and again at Mount Sterling, where neither the lateness of the hour nor the fact that it was Sunday could stay the enthusiasm of the Bryanltes. The Jacksonville people who awaited the arrival of their former townsman were disappointed, for Mr. Bryan re mained in his berth and did not leave the train until nearly 9 o'clock this morning. With Mrs. Bryan he went to the house of Dr. Jones and later In the afternoon attended divine services at the State Street Presbyterian ohurch. The church was crowded to the doors. A number of small boys and some others who were not so small, all wear ing strios of yellow ribbon, followed Mr. and Mrs. Bryan from their car riage into the building and gave a suppressed hurrah for McKinley. Four houses of worship, including that at tended by Mr. and Mrs. Bryan, occupy the four corners of the stgeets, and the congregations of all these were dismissed within a few minutes of each other, so that with the five hun dred or more people who had been waiting otftside for the two most in teresting persons in Jacksonville to appear. State Street Presbyterian church was surrounded by quite a large assemblage as the candidate and his wife hurriedly made their may to a waiting carriuge and were driven back to the residence of their host. Mr. Bryan slept part of the afternoon and the rest of his spare time was de voted to receiving old friends. Tomorrow morning Mr. Bryan will Visit the state college, and probably talk to the students there about the time when he was an under graduate. In the afternoon he will make a speech and at R o'clock will leave for Alton. RUNAWAY ACCIDENT. One Person Killed and Three Others Injured. Amesbury, Mass., Oct. 25. A fearful accident occurred here this afternoon, by which one person was Instantly kill ed and three others badly Injured. Al fred H. Coombs, his wife, a ten-year-old boy named Percy, who lived with them, and another boy, a son of Alfred Mor rill, started from Mr. Coombs' house at Tuxbury's Corner to drive to Newton, N. H., to attend church, when the horse took fright and plunged over an em bankment throwing them out. Mrs. Coombs' head struck a tree, crushing it into an unrecognizable mass and breaking the neck.

OPINION OP VOSSISCHE ZE1TUNG It Predicts That the Economic Move meat ia the tailed States Cannot Be Affected by the Results of Elec tionThinks That the Bryan Party Is Simply After the Spoils. . Berlin, Oct. 25. The progress of the presidential election campaign In the United States is watched here with the keenest interest, though more from a financial point of view than with any Idea of contrasting the social positions occupied by the candidates. It Is dif ficult, however, to get as yet even from the leading newspapers which devote columns of space to the subject an Intelligent appreciation of the situa tion. Voluminous letters are received here by mall conveying to Germans me developments of the struggle In which so many millions of their countrymen are interested, but few of the news papers here follow an Intelligent line of argument In discussing the ques tions which the campaign compre hends. The Vosslche Zeitung publishes an article from among the others in which it embodies the general German notion of the situation. In the course of an edi torial the paper says It Is a rare thing In the political history of the United States that the Democrats of the old school stand solidly together, shoulder to shoulder, with their old Republican opponents to fight! against the so called candidate of the national Demo cratic party, Mr. Bryan, and It is still more surprising to old observers of political campaigns to see the Demo crats of the eastern states standing up for McKinley, despite the fact that he Is the apostle of the doctrine of a high protective tariff which they have con sistently combatted for years. THET WANT SPOILS. The Vosslche, quoting from the New Tork Handelszeltung in regard to the platform upon which Mr. Bryan is making his campaign, proceeds to argue that neither the principles of the currency nor that of the tariff es pecially Inspires Mr. Bryan and his fol lowers, who, the paper says, simply strives to carry themselves along the old lines of belief that the spoils belong to the victors. The article concludes by saying that neither the victory 01 McKinley, nor the success of Bryan can ultimately affect the economic movement In the United States, which depends upon causes far beyond the struggle which is now taking place between 'the great political parties 01 America. The paper also ridicules the rumors which have been current in the col umns of the English newspapers, fur nished by their biassed American cor respondents, and which have been re produced here, that the situation In the United States is such at the present time that a very narrow issue could Involve civil war, and says that the Germans comprising a considerable part of the American populace would at all events accept the result of the election without the slightest dream of revolt against the voice of the ma jority as expressed by the suffrages of the people, AN APPEAL FROM NAVAL OFFICERS. Want the Same Privileges of Retire tiremcnt as the Army Enjoy. Washington, Oct. 25. Admiral Mc Natr and all the officers on the Asiatic Station have united in a Detitlon re questing Secretary Herbert to urge upon congress the enactment of such amendments to existing laws as will extent the privilege of thirty-year re tirement now enjoyed by the Army and Marine corps to the officers and men of the navy. The design is to abolish an apparently unwarranted discrimination against the navy, and particularly asalnst Its enlisted men, who do not now have the advantages of army privates. Similar petitions are expected from other squadrons, and little doubt is expressed that Secretary Herbert wjll seize the opportunity of making a strong recommendation in his annual report on the subject ARMENIANS ARRESTED. Charged with Having Been Impli cated in Work of Revolutionists. Constantinople, Oct. 25. The mem bers of two Armenian families have been arrested here on the charge of having been Implicated In the attempt of Armenian revolutions to secure the payment of tribute by an Armenian lawyer named Colorian. The latter made a rendezvous with the men who made the demand upon him and then Informed the police of the facts. Two policemen went to the rendezvous, where the revolutionists set upon and stabbed both of them. The arrest of the Armenians on var ious charges continue. It Is rumored that a large seizure of bombs was made in Pera yesterday. WILL EXTEND GREETINGS. New Jersey Republicans and Demo crnts Go to Canton. Newark, N. J., Oct. 25.
