CANDIDATES LOOK THE BEST NINETEEN PRECINCVS IN WA PELLO COUNTY SHOW HENRY GLENN TO BE LEADING TICKET --CITY WARDS STILL OUT. it Nineteen precincts in Wapello give democratic candidates good majorities over the republican candidates, al though up until 3 o'clock this afternoon several of the large city wards had not yet made a complete count. If the city precincts show the same demo cratic strength as these already re ported, the entire county ticket will be democratic by good majorities. In the returns thus far received, Henry uifenn, the candidate for treasure, is leading the ticket with William Knox a close second. The great amount of scratching done yesterday by the voters of the county is largely responsible for the delay in the complete returns.

Returns tp to 9 a. m. showed the democrats, had made a gross gain of forty-eight mem bers. This is offset by a republican gain of five members, leaving the net democratic gain of 43 new seats. The majority that warf considered probable will be increased by results in Colo rado and Oklaholma, among other states. The normal democratic represents tion in Colorado is three members and in Oklaholma the democratic candi date in the second district Is reported to be leading the republican incumbent. The tenth Indiana and fourth Min nesota districts are in doubt, along with districts in Iowa, Michigan, Mis souri, Nebraska, 6hio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. In order to secure control of the house it was necessary for the demo crats to secure twenty-four new mem bers. Following a net increase of forty-three they appear to have gained nineteen members in excess of the number necessary to control. The republican strength has been reduced by the election of a socialist in a Wisconsin district normally republican. Shake up In New Yo»k. The greatest gain in any one state was in New York where the present delegation of twelve democrats was Increased so as to make the division as to New York in the next house 22 democrats and 15 republicans.
