branches of congress. There Is no
question about the house, in which the
Domocrats will have a plurality of
1C1, according to the latest figures
Tho Progressives will nave 10 mem
bers. The Honate Is still in doubt. At
best the Democrats can not hope to
control It by more than a slight ma
jority, but the results in Michigan, Il
linois and Colorado are still In doubt.
In all these atatos where senators are
to be selected tho legislature is so
closo on joint ballot, as the returns

ed before the result can be known.
Tho scnute as constituted today
consists of r0 Republicans, 43 Demo
crats, there being three vacancies.
Tho terms of 36 senators expire on
March 3, 14 Democrats and 21 Repub

return New Jei-, New Hampshire,
Delaware, Colorado and Montana ap
parently have elected Democratic leg
islatures, which will tend Democrats
to the upper house at Washington.
