THE ELECTIONS. Republican Successful In Washington and Will Have a Majority In Congregg. . Washington; Nov. 10. Returns es tablish to a certainty that the United States senate will have a Republican majority after March next. Of the pres ent Republican total of 45, the terms of seven senators expire March 4. next, leaving 88 hold-over Republicans. To this number the elections of Tuesday add 10 Rej ublioans surely elected and three probably elected, making a total of 48, or two rnore than a majority of the Democrats, Populists and Silver Republicans. There are 21 Democratio hold-over senators, and to this number the elec tions added four with certainty and one probably, giving a total of 25 votes. The Populists and Silver Republican hold-overs number eight, and this was increased by one practically sure. Five state legislatures appear muoh in doubt, viz.: Nebraska, West Virginia, Mon tana, Indiana and Washington, and are not included in figuring the totals. Today's returns show that these Democratic senators will be succeeded by Republicans: White, California; Mitchell, Wisconsin; Allen, Nebraska) Turpie, Indiana; Smith, New Jersey; Faulker, West Virginia; Murphy, New York, and Gray, Delaware. Interest in the election Tuesday cen tered in the political complexon of the next house. Although Chairman Bab cock, of the Republican congressional committee, made this morning what he terms an ultra conservative estimate, in which he eliminated a number of doubtful lists, this estimate gives the Republicans 185 members in the next house, a majority of 13 over all.

TESLA'S NEW INVENTION. Will Control Moving Vgiieli Without Wire Communication. New York, Nov. 10. Nikola Tesla, the electrioian, in a newspaper inter view, describes an application of eleo tricity whereby, without the interposi tion of any artificial medium of com munication, one man can control and direct, with absolute exactitude, the movements of any type of vessel, bal loon or land vehicle, at any distance that may be desired. From a station on snore, or from the deck of a vessel under way, a torpedo-boat equipped with Mr. -Teala's controlling device may ,lre piopelled either on or below the surface, maneuvered at will in any direction, and finally brought into con tact and explode against the side of a hostile vessel at any point within range of vision cl the operator. More than this, assuming that it were possible to accurately locate the position of the vessel whioh it is desired to destroy, the torpedo-boat could be directed to it, event if the ship lay in the haibor of Southampton and the- operator was stationed at Sandy Hook. Mr. Tesla said that some months had elapsed since he had fully developed his devioe, for which he has applied for a patent. When it was learned that Admiral Cervera was bottled up at Santiago, it was his intention' to ap ply his meohanism to several launches and similar craft loaded with high ex-, plosives and annihilate the fleet at an chor. Admiral Cervera, however, oame out and met his fate under the guns of the American fleet before the neces sary arrangements could be made. Then Mr. Tesla planned a raid on the Spanish vessels in Havana harbor, only to be thwarted by the proclamation of the suspension of hostilities. , LOOK FOR EARLY CONCLUSION. The Administration Encouraged by the Advices From Paris, Washington, Nov. 10. The advices that have come to hand so far from the commission at Paris are said to be rather enoouraging than the reverse, and there1 is a disposition here to agree to the statement rather curiously made by the Spanish cabinet yesterday that there will be three or four more meet ings of the joint commission. This is taken to indicate that the Spaniards themselves are not looking for a break in the negotiations, but they rather expect a peaceful conclusion in a short time. The foreign bondholders have at last moved formally to protect their inter ests in Cuba and Porto Rico. The ini tial steps have been taken through the agency of the French embassy, whioh,' in this case acts no longer as the repre sentative of the Spanish government, but for French subjects. Through the embassy a formidable statement has been presented to the state department, being an account of the various Span ish bonds owned by French citizens, chargeable against the territories either seized or set free by the act of the United States government. The sum of these bonds runs far into the mil lions. Just what it is expeoted shall be done with them is not clear. The United States government, of course, will not pay them, but it may help the French government to oause the inde pendent government of Cuba to assume liability for the redemption of the bonds charged against that island when that government shall have been duly installed by the act of the United States. New Gold Fields. C'eveland, Nov. 9. Mr. Franklin Ransom, of this city, who went to Terra del Fuego a year and a half ago in quest of gold, has returned with nearly $18, 000 in gold.

Ransom ays all gold is obtained from placer mines or is washed out of a mag netic black sand that is blown upon the sea shore. This sand sometimes runs $1.80 to the pan.

Sheriff Gage and a poBse found the tracks of the robbers early this morning and followed them until dark. : The oountry is well guard ed tonight, 'and the sheriff thinks they cannot possibly escape.

Macon, 111., Nov. 9. The first lynoh ing In Central Illinois in many years took place here early this morning, when 100 miners from Toluca, a min ing town a short distance east of here, broke into the county jail, took out F. W. Stewart, a Toluca negro, and hanged blm to a tree. The work was done quickly and quiet ly. Only a few late Btragglers noticed the number of strangers who kept ar riving in town from the east. They were well organized, however, and shortly after midnight marched in a body to the jail, broke in the doors after a short parley with the sheriff, dragged the negro from his cell, cairied him to a tree a mile from town, where the re mainder of the party awaited them, and there swung him to a limb. , Stewart's crime was assault on Friday evening upon Mary O'Brien, the daugh ter of one of the Toluca miners. Although many in Macon deplore the lynching, there is a general impression that the negro was punished as he de served, and the sheriff seems to think that publio sentiment would not justify him in making strenuous efforts to cap ture the lynchers.

New York, Nov. 9. r-A dispatch to the Herald from Washington says: In President McKinley's message to con gress will be a very strong and urgent appeal for immediate legislative ao tion for the construction of the Nica ragua canal under government diree-, tion. The president wMl point out that our new connections in the Pa oifio and in the West Indies make it imperative for the United States to build and control the great internation al waterway, and that delay in author izing its construction will jeopardize the chances for American control ia the future. President MoKinley fully appre ciates the difficulties in the way of securing prompt action, bnt he and other canal advocates also appreciate that failure this year may mean per manent failure. Henoe preparations are going forward for one of the most bitter fights ever waged in the interest of the canal. , The action of the Nioaragua govern ment in granting a new concession for the construction of the canal conditional upon the forfeiture of the contract with the Maritime Canal Company in Ootq ber next has added new complications to the difficulties in the way of legisla tion. The authorities consider that it adds another element of opposition to prompt action on the pending Morgan bill, which contemplates the construc tion of the. canal under government direction on the basis of the concession granted to the Maritime Canal Com pany. The Morgan bill in all its essen tial features is understood to have the indorsement of the administration. It ia supposed that the new company will be inimical to the Maritime Canal Company. It is assumed if it does not succeed in selling out to the concession aires, it will exert its influence to pre vent action by congress this winter in' order that its contract may go into effeot next October. Besides opposi tion from this new company, friends of the Morgan bill will have the powerful Huntington and Panama canal intei ests arrayed against them. , Friends of the latter party are already in Wash-: ington, preparing for . a campaign, against the Nicaragua canal, , J. L, Morgan is to be a faotor in th coming legislative war. It is stated that while in Nicaragua last winter he made an arrangement with President. 7al.l.n (a 1 1. Fi .. ,LH I - .
