Holds the Balance Of Power. Kansas City, Dec. 3. The Star .Toxht special says: John S. Rich ards of Wichita, "stated this morning that the result of the official count gave the democrats a balance of power which was absolute. He claims that O'Brien from Sedgwick, and Dillard of Bourljon, in the senate will stand with two democrats in the lower house. According to the official count this makes the political complexion of the iher at It) o clock in the ; Wbdature as follows : republican i in the evening, the K ,. . QO i,.t i i. having Wo settled.! , populists 82, tlemocrats 4. In tile estimates, nereioiure;, w uiku auu Dillard have leen counted as straight populists. O'Brien is fusion democrat and has alwavs affiliated with the populists.. The iPopulists claim that he is pledged to support the populist caucus nomi nee, but democrats contend he will in sist upon the election of a democrat and give the populist the state printer on compromise. Dillard is of aliout the same political faith as O'Brien. Mr. Richardson is authority for the statement that neither of these senators would vote under any cir cumstances for a recalcitrant democrat and without them a republican-democratic combine is possible.
