THE WASHINGTON TIMES, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 1912,
61 FIGHT COMING .
Ufa CHAIRMEN OF
I IMPORTANT BODIES
jScnate Committee Will Be
'fHeaded by Southerners, If
L Seniority Counts.
Democratic control of tlio Scnato not
only presages a comploto reorganiza
tion of the commltteos and a loss of
the chairmanships held by the neputjt
(leans, but It points to a big fight, In
fll probability, between the reaction
aries and progressives among the
Senate Democrats over the make-up
of the committees. Much depends on
how' these committees are framed. If
tho reactionaries domtnato them, thrri
progressive legislation will bo difficult
Southern Senators will get the most
Important chairmanships In all prob
ability. This will haupen If tho chair
manships are disposed of by tho rule
For Instance, Senator Simmons of
North Carolina, who'ls ranking min
ority member of tho Finance Commit
tee, will head that committee and will
nave a big Influence on tariff legis
lation. He Is a conservative on tho
tariff and has repeatedly voted for a
high lumber tariff. '
Senator Ilacon on the scoro of sen
iority Is entitled to head Foreign Re
lations and Senator Tillman to head
Appropriations. It Is believed, how
ever, that on account of his health.
Tillman will not want to bo chairman
sjf the Appropriations Committee, the
work being burdensome. In that case
Senator Culberson of Texas would bo
entitled to the place.
Senator Martin of Virginia Is the
tanking minority member of the Dis
trict of Columbia Committee and Is
entitled to that chairmanship. If he
takes some other post, then Senator
Joseph F. Johnston of Alabama Is
Bext In line.
If the Democrats dispose of the chair
manships by seniority In tho Senate,
some of the Important chairmanships
will go to the following:
Agriculture Senator Dankhead. of Ala
bama. Appropriations Senator Tillman or
Civil Service Senator Clarke of Ar
kansas. Claims Senator Martin of Virginia, or
Overman, of North Carolina
Commerce Senator Martin or Senator
Mewlands, of Nevada.
Education and Labor Senator Rancr,
Finance Senator Simmons.
Immigration Senator Jeff Dats, of
Interstate Commerce Senator New

Interoceanlc Canals Senator Johnston
or Senator Chilton, of West Virginia.
Judiciary Senator Culberson, Senator
Overman, or Senator Itajner.
Military Affairs Senator Johnston,
Senator Clarke, or Senator Chamberlain,
Naval Affairs-Senator Smith, of Mary

Postofflces Senator nankhead, or Sen

Qain -of Six Suffices, and
Seven Are Now Appar

On the basis of tho returns last night
and thoso that came In early this morn

legislatures to give them a safo work
ing majority In tho Senate of the
This is of the utmost Importance In
Its bearings on the course of legislation
tho next four years. Governor Wilson
and tho Democratic leaders for weeks
havo been working hard to the end of
capturing the Senate. With the upper
house under Democratic control. It will
be posslblo to enact the legislation
favored by the Democratlo administra
tion. Correspondingly, the Influence of the
"Old Ouard" of the Senate Is weak
ened. Tho Democrats will annex the
chairmanships. The committees will bo
reorganized and will be controlled by
the Democrats. The Progressive Re
publicans of the Senate, though weak
ened, will still remain a powerful forco.
The Senate as It stands today con
tains M Republicans, 43 Democrats nnd
3 vacancies. Forty-nine makes a ma
jority. Indications are that the Demo
crats will have not less than 60 and
Gain of Six Sufficient.
A gain of six Senators will suffice to
give the Democrats control. They hac
made these gains: Two In Colorado.
one In New Jersey, one In Montana, one
in Oregon, one In Nevada, and one In
Delaware, On this basis, the Demo
crats will have M In the Senate.

claimed In Illinois, but the latest re
turns Indicate that the Progressives and
Socialists will control the situation
there and dictate tho two Senatorshlps
which are nt stake. It Is not certain,
therefore, whether the Democrats will
get any Senator out of Illinois.
In view of the fact that the Demo
crats have elected aovernor Marshall as
Vice President, they can, as a matter
of fact, control the Senate with forty
eight, as the Vice President can vote
when there Is a tie.
Stubbs Ii Apparently Safe.
Massachusetts was last night thought
to be Democratic, but It now appears
to be Jlepubllcan by a closo margin, so
far as tho legislature Is concerned. In
Oregon, Senator -Bourne has been de
feated, and Lane, a Democrat, wilt suc
ceed him. In West Virginia. Senator
Watson will succeed himself. Oovernor
Stubbs Is hating a race for life In Kan
sas, but has probably pulled through.
Senator Knute Nelson Is haMng a close
light In Minnesota, and the Democrats
claim the legislature. In Nebraska.
Congressman Norrls. who Is running for
the Senate, may win out by a close votn.
Senator Kenon has probably, wn In
Iowa, and Borah seems to have won In
Idaho. In Michigan, the Republicans
appear to hue the legislature. If the
Democrats have won the Delaware leg
islature, Wlllard Saulsbury. Democratic
national committeeman, will be Senator
to succeeed Richardson.

Will Appeal to Congress for
Appropriation to Make
Efforts to secure an appropriation
for an Increase In tho police fores will
bo made by the Commissioners at the
next session of Congress. Notwithstand
ing the earnest appeal of Major Hyl.
vester for additional men, coupled with
the statement that the present force Is
deficient In numbers. Congress at the
lukt session not only refused to grant
additional appropriations, but provided
for a decrease 1n the force by Includ
ing In the District appropriation bill the
"After Juno 30, 1112, there shall be no
appointments except by promotion, in
(111 vacancies occurring in classes, one,
two, or three, of privates, In tho Metro
politan police, until he whole number
of privates in all of said classes shall
have been reduced to 610."
On June 30 the total number of pri
vates was 660. Since thut date there
have been seven vacancies caused by
resignation and death. The resultant
number, 661, Is divided Into four reliefs
of eight hours each with half of each
relief coming off duty detained on re
serve duty at the several stations for
six hours. Taking Into consideration
the number of policemen on slclc. and
annual leave and those on post, duty,
the District Is guarded by a daylight
force of about 100 policemen and 'a
night force of doublo that number.
Want 73 Privates Appointed.
Considering this force as entirely In
adequate properly tu patrol the sev
enty square miles of pollco Jurisdiction
In the District, the Commissioners will
urgo that provision be made for theap
pointment of seventy-five privates. In
their endeavor, the Commissioners will
have tho co-operation of the cltlscns'
associations, especially thoso of the
suburban districts, where. In view of
tho Increasing population, additional po
llco protection Is demanded.
' Resolutions railing for action on the
fiart of the citizens clvlo organizations,
t was announced today by John J. Mc
Orath, president, Kill be Introduced at
the next meeting of the I'ork View
The police Jurisdiction embraces the
entire territory of the District, and has
an area of (3.7 square miles WashlnK
ton, Georgetown, Anacostla, Chevy
Chase, Cleveland Park, ivy City, Pet
north, Ilrlchtwood, Kiklngton, llrook
land, and over sixty towns and villages
are Included within It.
Force Deficient in Numbers.
Commenting on the Inadequacy of tho
force properly to patrol this large terri
tory. Major Sylvester said:
"Aside from the watching of property,
You want to buy Furniture
Come here for reliable goods at low prices
Just that plain statement may not arouse your enthusiasm, but if you'll stop and
think for a moment is there any fact concerning furniture that can mean more to you?
Absolutely reliable goods at prices as low or lower than you will be asked for
equal values elsewhere. We don't know how to offer you more than that!
In the matter of paying, our claim is stronger. We will grant you easier terms
than any other store in Washington. Open an account here and tell us how you'd
like its payments divided to suit your circumstances. 7We ask. you to sign no notes,
and charge no interest.
Wherever you may buy a carpet its en
tire cost is not reached until it has Tjeen laid
on your floor. This is probably the only
store in Washington where you may know
exactly what this entire cost will be at the
time you buy.
Here you will find the price per yard
marked in plain figures, and that price covers
every penny of cost.
Our service covers the making, the fur
nishing of linings, and the laying absolutely
free. Your floors are measured and you are
charged for only what is actually necessary
to cover them. Whatever may be wasted
in cutting to match figures is not charged
the preservation of the peace and the
arrest of criminals, the police are
charged with the enforcement of sev
eral hundred regulations promulgated
by tho Commissioners.
"In order to secure what Is expected
and what should be done, a well organ
ised and efficient police force Is main
tained, but It Is deficient In numbers.
The situation Is such that, In order to
control, the dlrecUng authority must
continually borrow from one territory
to maintain proper compliance Uh
the laws and regulations, or. In other
words, the shortage of force requires
that one locality be left unprotected
while protection Is afforded another."
