Thero aro 1G1 mem bers of the houso and thlrty-ono sen otors necessitating ninety-two mem bers to elect on Joint ballot.

Asher Hinds, Republican, Is elect ed to congress In tili'o First district hy about 180 votes. Congressman F. E. Guernsey, Republican, In tho Fourth district, claims victory hy 200 votes. In both of theso districts a recount will bo demanded. In tho Second congressional district D. J. Mcnilllcuddy, Democrat, has won zy 3,000 majority, and In tho Third S. W.

Portland, . Me., Sept. 13. "Local conditions wofo not responsible for yesterday's Democratic victory. Tho people of Malno voted on national Is sues. .High prices, control of tho Re publican party in tho Interests of tho trusts, CannonlBin, all contributed to our victory. Tho peoplo of this coun try aro tired of Republican misrule." Govornor-olect Fred W. Plalsted, Mio swung Republican Maine Into tho Dmnooratlc column for tho first tlmo lp thirty years, sumtnarlzed In tho above statement tho opinions of tho Democratic leaders as to tho re sponsible causes for tho turn-over. Thoy nlsp admit thnt tho progressive moyoment. which Is sweeping the country, was a potent factor.

Tho Democratic leaders dispute theso fig ures 'nnd Insist that all four of their congressional candidates havo been successful. It seems reasonably certain that the Democrats will havo a majority on Joint ballot In tho legislature. Till? means -thnt the successor to United Stntes Senator Eugeno Halo will be a Democrat. Returns so far Indicate the Demo crats havo elected twenty out of thirty-one stato senators. Three dis tricts aro In doubt nnd tho Republi cans wero successful In tho other eight. Thero aro many missing house districts, owing to their remoteness, hut Indications nro that the Demo crats will control tho lower body also. The last Democratic United States senator from Malno wos elected In 1817. lie wos James W. Bradbury. Governor-elect Plalsted this morn ing claimed his official plurality will probably exceed 9,000. Complete re turns from 478 of the 521 election districts In the tate. showed that Plalsted leads Governor Fernald by 8, 4 no. It Is ndmltted that Plalsted out genernlcd his opponents In tho con duct or the campaign. Realizing that ho must depend upon the cities for his vote, he concentrated his efforts upon them. The result Is that tho Democracy swept every city In the stato excepting Belfast and Calais. The sentiment spread from Jho cities to many of tho smnllcr towns, with tho result that Democracy has captured four out of five of tho minor offices. Tho Roppbllcnn leaders decllno to comment on tho result. As In every election held slnco the Payne-Aldrlch tariff bill was passed, It was the "si lent "vote" that determined tho re sult. Ah lato ns Sunday night Con gressman McKlnley, manager of the Ropubllcnn congressional campaign, assured President Taft bio figure In dicated tho election t all four can didates of his party. The last Democratic governor of Maine, elected In 1889, was Harris M Plalsted, father of tho governor elect, lie was a candidate of the Greonback and Democratic organiza tions. Ills plurality In tho stato wo'j 109 votes. Prior to that tlmo Maine had Republican governors slnco 1855. Colonel Plalsted, governor-elect, was born In Bangor In 1804. Ho was four times chosou mayor of Repub lican Augusta and also sheriff of Kennebec county. He Is past grand commander of tho Knights Templar nnd editor and publisher of n weekly nowspaper. As a result of the- election there Is a possibility that tho Malno prohibi tory law may bo resubmitted to tho people It Is also certain that tho so called Sturgls bill, which govo tho governor tho power to send liquor enrorcement deputies Into a county without consulting tho county author ities, will bo repealed Immediately.
