NE"W YORK. Nov. 4. Heavy Repub
lican gains in yesterday's election gave
assurances of reducing the present
Democratic majority ot 141 in
House of Representatives by a big
At an early hour today the returns
from various states showed a. net gain
of 42 seats for the Republicans. Many
districts are yet to be heard from. Re
publican leaders tonight were jubilant
over the prospects, some predicting
that the Democratic majority might be
overturned altogether by the final
Democratic control of the Senate,
however, was assured, the possibility
being that it would be increased from
10 to12 through the election of. Roger
C. Sullivan of Illinois. Sullivan's large
plurality in Cook County, however,
may be offset and even exceeded by
Sherman's gains in other counties,
complete returns from which probably
will not be received until late today.
Tariff Effects Vote.
The sweeping Republican victory in
New York, the collapse of . the Pro
gressive vote throughout the country
and the upheaval In the- Democratic
Congressional districts - generally were
taken as assurances by Republican
partisans that the - tariff had entered
into the National political conflict
with telling effect.
Unusual developments marked the
contests in North Carolina and New
Orleans. In North Carolina two Repub
lican candidates for Representatives in
Congress developed unusual strength,
threatening the defeat of Representa
tives Doughton and Gudger. In the
third Louisiana W. P. Martin (Prog.),
was leading Henry L. Gueydan (Dem.),
Colonel Roosevelt made a campaign
speech in this district.
Latest available returns .on the Con
gressional delegation from New York
State showed 21 Republicans and 21
, Democrats elected and one Progres
sive. Farther Gains Shown.
The New York delegation in the
present House is: Democrats, 31; Re
publicans, 11; Progressives. 1, the Re
publican gain in yesterday's election
to date being 10.
Further Republican gains in the late
returns show two in New Hampshire,
ex-Representative Cyrus A. Sulloway
returning to the House; one in Rhode
Island, Representative Peter Gerry
(Dem.) being defeated by Walter R.
Stiness (Rep.); two in West Virginia,
a further gain of one in Massachusetts,
making a net gain of three Repub
lican seats from that state, and two in
Indiana. The total Republican gain in
dicated at that hour was 42 seats.
In the first general election for
United States Senators results still are
In doubt in several states. The elec
tion of James W. Wadswofth, Jr.
(Rep.), in New York to succeed Elihu
Root over Ambassador James W. Ger

Democratic Administration leaders.
Latest returns gave Wadsworth an
estimated plurality of 50,000.

Governor Johnson (Prog.) has won a
re-election by a plurality that ap
proaches landslide proportions over
Captain John D. Fredericks (Rep.)
with the Democratic candidate, John
B. Curtin, a distant third.
The vote for United Slates Senator
was so close at the midnight hour as
between James D. Phelan (Dem.) and
Joseph R. Knowland (Rep.) as to make
forecast of the final result a mere
hazard. On the face of early returns,
Francis J. Heney, the Progressive can
didate, was a lagging third.
John M. Eshelman (Prog.) has been
lected Lieutenant-Governor over J. V.
Snyder (Dem.) by a vote that threat
ened on the scattering count to exceed
two to one.
Prohibition and Eight Honrs Beaten.
Two proposed laws In which the in
terest throughout the state was intense
that providing for state-wide pro
hibition, and the universal eight-hour
work day measure have gone down to
overwhelming defeat. Seemingly pro
hibition has lost by almost two to one,
while the margin of victory for the
opponents of the eight-hour law is
much greater. i
The outstanding feature or tonight s
returns has been the uniformity with
which Johnson outstripped his rivals in
every section of the state. Besides car
rying San Francisco, his home county.

Short shrift was given both the pro
hibition and eight-hour measures in all
parts of the state, there being scarcely

Well - Known Physician Glvea Oat
Simple Home Recipe for the
Tobacco Habit to Be
A well-known physician, located In
the Middle West, who has treated
thousands of cases of tobacco habit,
in a recent Interview made the fol
lowing statement: "The cost of drugs
used to treat the tobacco habit in the
high-priced sanitariums amounts to
very little. Here is a simple, inex
pensive prescription that can be given
secretly in coffee, tea. milk, water or
in the food, as it has no taste, color
nor smell: To 3 oz. of water add 20
grains of muriate of ammonia, a small
box of Varlex Compound. 10 grains
pepsin. Give in coffee or food a tea
spoonful three times a day. This pre
scription Is perfectly harmless, can be
obtained at any drug store, and will be
found very effective in the treatment
of the tobacco habit in any form."
