THE OHIO VJNUET a
Far-Recachiag In It. Remults Aside 11
From Its Local Featugeg. It
A Wabhington Special of recent date
to the Times-Democrat says :
"The Democratic victory In Ohio Is
so far-reaching in its results that there
is much of national Interest In It aside,
from the mere local features. There is
no doubt that the newly el lja
lature will promptly red t
8tate. II this is done, and there are
no material changes in the other States,
the Republicans will not have a ma
jority in the Fifty-Second Congress.
Ohio has been subject to so many ger.
rynmanders that it Is easy to calculate d
loust about what changes will be rmade t
to view of the fact that the Democrats
will have a pretly fair working msjor
Ity in both branches. It is presumed
that the next congreselonal delegation
from Obio will stand fourteen or fifteen
Democrats So six or seven Republicanss.
It has been deomeetrated that an ar-.
reagement of countles can be made to
Iproduce this result. An Interestsig
feature is that the moeet distinglutehed
Republican Congressemnso from the
Buckeye State are In the greatest dan
