In three states where Senator

leads Hubert "Work, Rep., by a
narrow plurality, but full returns
may revise it. In Nevada the
latest figrures show but nine
votes separating: Thomas G. New

Piatt, Rep. In Wisconsin Francis

WASHINGTON, Nov. 5. Many
ehan&es In the organisation of the
House of Representatives will be made
when Champ Clark and "Uncle Joe"
Cannon once more face each other
across the center aisle at the begin
ning of the next Congress. The dwin
dling of the Democratic majority,
which' will drop after the close of the
December session from 140 to 24, will
necessitate a general shifting of the
working order in the House.
With their slender majority the Dem
ocrats, while able to re-elect Speaker
Clark and retain control of the com
mittees, will be forced to maintain an
almost perfect organization. Even with
a full attendance 'in the House a shift
of 12 votes would throw the control to
"the minority side. Practically complete
returns tonight gave the Democrats
229, Republicans 196, Progressives 7,

Committees to Be Readjusted.
This narrow margin will probably re
sult in a rearrangement of committee
representation. tho Democrats now
having an overwhelming majority in
' all of the standing committees. The
falling off of the Progressives from 19
in the present House to seven probably
will cut down their committee repre
sentation materially, and even may
lose them the few Important places
they now hold.
Democratic leadership in the House
will undergo great changes. Repre
sentative Underwood was elected to the
Senate and will leave the House at the
close of December. Representative
Kitchen, of North Carolina, the ranking
Democrat of the ways and means com
mittee, will claim the Democratic lead
ership by right of seniority, and is ex
pected to have the support of Southern
Democrats generally.
Representative Mann, of Illinois, un
doubtedly will retain the Republican
leadership, facing the Democrats with
formidable support. His rank will in
elude ex-Speaker Cannon and numerous
other Republicans who have recaptured
the places they lost in the 1912 cam-
Tariff Committee Decimated.
The election will vacate five of the
14 Democratic places on the ways and
means committee, which framed the
Underwood tariff law. Representative
Underwood goes to the Senate. Repre
tentative Hammond was elected Gov
ernor of Minnesota. Representative
Mitchell, of Massachusetts, who suc
ceeded Representative Peters on the
committee when the latter became As
sistant Secretary of the Treasury, was
defeated at the polls. Representative
Palmer, of Pennsylvania, surrendered
his seat to run for the Senate and was
defeated, and Representative Stanley, of
Kentucky, sought the Senatorial nomi
nation and lost his place. Representa
tive Murdock, of Kansas, the Progres
sive leaaer ana meraner or the com
mittee, lost his seat in an effort to go
10 ine senate.
All of the Republican members of the
committee were returned, and in addi
lion ttbenezer Hill, tariff expert and
one or the Iramers of the Payne law.
was sent back after a two-year stay at
home. He will probably make a fight

. Rnles Democrats missing.
Two Democratic members of the rules
committee will not return. Represen
tative Hardwlck. of Georgia, goes to
the Senate, and Representative Gold
fogle, of New Tork, was defeated by
Socialist, Meyer London.
Representative Kelly, of Pennsyl
vania, the Progressive member of the
committee, was defeated by a ReDub
llcan, and the Progressives may lose
thetr place on the committee.
The labor committee lost two Demo
crats, Representatives Baltz, of Illinois,
ana waisn, or new Jersey, who repre
sented President Wilson's district. Rep
resentative MacDonald. of Michigan, the
Progressive member, also was defeated.
Four Democratic members of the bank
lng and currency committee also failed
of re-election. They were Colonel
Korbly. of Indiana; Bulkley, of Ohio
Neeley, of Kansas, and Seldomridge, of
Colorado. Representative Hobson, of
Alabama, long a prominent member of
the naval affairs committee, lost his
place in an effort to defeat Representa
tive Underwood for the Senate. Repre
sentatives Bathrick, of Ohio, and Gerry,
of Rhode Island, also win be missing
from the naval affairs committee.
The Democrats lost five members who
were on the military affairs committee.
the Republicans one and the Progres
Fives one. The judiciary committ&a will
be practically unchanged. .
In the Senate the indicated increase
in the Democratic majority was wel
corned by Administration leaders, who
have been hampered during the present
Congress by the narrow margin of their
control. The possibility of the defeat
of Senator Newlands, of Nevada, threat
ened to leave vacant the chairmanship
of the interstate commerce committee,
which has handled the Administration
anti-trust measures, and which now has
before it the Administration railroad
securities bill.

Late tabulations of the vote on equal

not upset the lead previously recorded
in favor of the women, but rural and
mountainous counties had not reported.
In addition to the 10 states now
listed as granting full franchise to
women, the sex have the right to Vote
for certain officers in 22 other states.
In Illinois, one of the 22, women may
vote for all statutory offices. Including

they know how to sing and

nonsense in a way that wins the
plaudits of every audience at
the Empress. "Tommie" Ryan,
the veteran character actor, who
headlines the bill, is not the least
bit jealous of Lucy and Ethel's
popularity, nor are any of the

late returns bear out early indications
that the franchise was denied women
in Ohio, Missouri, Nebraska, North Da
kota and South Dakota-
Officers of the National Woman Suf
frage Association began tonight to re
capitulate the results of women's votes
in the various states in which they
balloted on Tuesday. They contend that
the women were instrumental in Cali
fornia in passing laws that drive out
pugilism and segregated vice quarters
and failed in driving out saloons only
because of the too drastic provisions of
the amendment. .
The suffragist leaders also
assert I
that women showed their power at the
polls in Chicago by electing as judge of
the Municipal Court Charles iu Billings,
who introduced in the Illinois Legisla
ture the bill that gave women the right
to vote for many offices in Illinois.
Billings would have been defeated by
the men's vote.
Credit for Prohibition Claimed.
The leaders also declare that women
aided materially in voting prohibition
on Tuesday for Washington, Oregon
land Colorado.
laDuiation or tne woman voies in
Chicago shows that they cast 104,641
ballots on Tuesday. The total reglstra.
tion of women in the city is nearly
170,000. The percentage of women who
stayed at home was much larger than
that of men. In Chicago the Democrats
received about 43 per cent of the wom
en's ballots, the Republicans 34 per
cent and the Progressives 23 per cent.

More than 100 Portland persons par

man who was described by M. C. Reed
as the "central figure in the greatest
campaign Oregon has ever known.
One of the speakers voiced the sug
gestion that Mr. Wheeler should be

Hundred, Anti-Saloon League, Oregon
W. C. T. U., Methodist Temperance So

W. Stone, general . secretary of the
Y. M. C. A., said that Mr. Wheeler would
take his place among National figures.
E. A. Baker, superintendent of the
Anti-Saloon League of Oregon, spoke of
the valuable advice and assistance he
had received from Mr. Wheeler during
the campaign. Mr. Baker was in
structed, also, to convey greetings from
the National Anti-Saloon League.
B. Lee Paget read a letter of good
wishes from J. P. Newell, state chair

Read Editorial Comment of Leading Newspapers of the Country
The trade agencies report a distinctly disappointing condition in trade throughout
the country as a whole, and but little response to the manifestly favorable conditions,
of which the number is even greater this week than before. The present ill effects
are from the European war, warm weather, which affects the demand for Winter
goods, the depression in the cotton situation, and the high rates for money. Added to
these are slow collections, restricted industrial outputs and close scanning of credits.
Conservatism is widespread, very much overdone, and operates to curtail buying for
future delivery.
