tions, twenty-four are held by Repuo
licans, a circumstance unusualiy pro
pltlcus for the Democracy, as ,lt glv-s
them proportionately more opportunl
tles for galn than ordlnarlly. The Ro
publlcan Senators whose terms will ex

Wlll Take Revolutlon.
The Democrats are making vigor-vts
flghts for many of these places. hut
the Republlcans are so strongly In
trenched that nothlng less than a
revolutlon could lnsure success ln a
Buflicient number of cases to secure
Democratlc control ln the upper House.
The Republ'ca:: majorlty is now twen?
ty-four, and in order to attain such
control lt would be necessary for tlie
Democrats to galn fourteen c;.' ihe
twenty-four .Republican seats, and ln
addltion hold all of the slx scats no**
.occupled by Democrats.
The Democratlc Senators who elther
must retire or be rechosen between
now and March 4, are:
Culberson, of Texas; Krazler, of Ten
nessee; Money, of Misslsslppl; Rayner.
jof Maryland; Swanson, of Virginla, and
Taliaferro, of Florida.
Mr. Swanson ls the appolnted suc
tessor of Senator Danlel, whose death
occurred after the adjournment of tho
last session of Congress. Hls appolnt?
ment ls HmiLed to the approaching
session, but, owlnp to the fact that the
Virginla Leglslature wlll not be ln ses?
sion thls wlnter. it wlll be necessary
for the Governor to make another ap?
polntment, elther of Mr. Swanson or
some one else, to take up the senatorlal
duties from the fourth of March until
there can be an electlon.
Vantly Cbangcd.
Even 'f the Democrats don't galn
control of the Senate, the next Congress
will see a vastly changed body. In
addltion to Senator Danlel, Senators
Dolliver, of Iowa, and Mclnery, of
Louisiana, have dled since the adjourn?
ment of Congress last June. and thelr
places probably wlll bo (Uled during
the comlng session. No selectlon has
been made in Iowa Action has been
taken ln Louisiana, but compllcatlons
are expected to arlse ln connectlon
wlth the vacancy caused by Mclnery's
death. Governor Saunders decllned the
oilice and sought to fill lt by the ap
polntment of Mr. Thornton. Tho clr
cumstances under whlch the appoint
ment was made have given rlse to
doubts as to Its valldlty, and the vac?
ancy may contlnue untll the Leglsla?
ture can act.
Of the Republlcans whose terms wlll
explre ln March lt ts known that sev?
eral wlll not come back. Among them
ar.e Messrs. Aldrich, Hale, Fllnt, Piles
and Warner, all of whom. have re?
fused to stand for re-electlon, and
Senator Bifrrows, who was defeated'
ln the'Mlchlgan senatorlal prlmarles
'. Money Wlll Bc Vilsseil.
Among tho Democrats, Senator
Money's face wlll be mlssed. Hls suc
cessor, in tha person of Hon. John
Sharp Williams, former Democratlc
House leader, was chosen by the Mls
slsslppi Leglslature threo ov four
years ago, whon Mr. Monoy refused
to bo a candldate to succeed hlmself.
Sonator Taliaferro occuples an
anomalous posltion. Defeated at the
prlmary polls for re-nomlnation by
Governor Broward, another chanco has
boen opened to him by the death of
Mr. Broward boforo the Leglsluturo
could meet and ratlfy tho action of
