roundly criticised locally for having
surrendered In the tariff fight when,
by holding out. they wit! a few others
whose terms do not expire next year

that bill before It became a law.
Indiana Democrat Probable.
The Democrats from the South are
reasonably sure of re-election, or will
be succeeded by other Democrats, and
an 11th Democrat. Senator Shively. of
Indiana. Is likely to be returned be
rauae of the split in the opposition in
his state. Shively probably will be op
posed by ex-Governor Durbin. Repub
lican, and by ex-Senator Beveridge.
Bull Moose, and In a three-cornered
fight such as this the prospects favor
tShively. The ten Democrats who will
be returned or be succeeded by other
Dmccrata are: Clarke. Arkansas;
Fletcher. Florida; Gore, Oklahoma;
Overman. North Carolina; Smith. South
Carolina; Smith. Georgia; Smith. Mary
land: Stone. Missouri; Thornton. Louisi
ana, and White, Alabama. Represen
tative Underwood, of course, will be
the new Senator from Alabama.
On the other hand there are 13 Re-
publicans who either will be re-elected
or give way to others, probably Re
publicans. They are: Brady. Idaho;
Brandegee. Connecticut; Crawford.
South Dakota; Cummins, Iowa; Dil
lingham. Vermont; Gallinger. New
Hampshire: Gronna. North Dakota;
Jones. Washington: Penrose. Pennsyl
vania; Perkins. California: Root. New
York; Smoot, Utah, and Stephenson.
Wis. This leaves in doubt the Sena
torial contests in five states, four of
them now represented by Republican
Senators. These states are Kentucky.
Kansas, Ohio. Illinois and Wisconsin.
w York Counted as Republican.
New Tork is listed among the states
to return a Republican Senator to suc
ceed Root because of the unpopularity
of the Administration, and the disap
proval of the work of the Democratic
Congress, and because the Administra
tion has brought about a split In the
. New York Democracy that Is sure to
be a factor In the election there this
Fall. Sanator Root, of course, has
. eliminated himself, but the Republican
H nominee, if the selection be a wise
one. is expected to win. The third
party has dwindled into insignificance
In New York, and is not expected to
be a factor, but even so. the New York
Democracy is split quite as wide as
- the Republican party of the state, and
the Democratic candidate for Senator
will not profit by reason of the
.: presence of a third party candidate
for the Senatorsblp.
Senator Brandegee, of Connecticut,
probably is in more danger than any
ether Senator on the foregoing list,
because he has always been regarded
as a friend and partisan of the New
' Haven Railroad, but he is without op
position in his own party, and the
Democracy of Connecticut, like that of
New York, la badly split at the present
time. Senator Crawford, of course, will
give way to Representative Burke, who
handily won the Republican nomination
at the South Dakota primaries some
Jonr, Ptrked to Win la Washington.
The Washington Senatorial contest
is to be a three-cornered affair, but
Republican headquarters Is satisfied
that Senator Jones will be returned.
Ills probable Bull Moose opponent. Mr.
Falconer, has utterly failed to make
good in Congress, and is himself under
fire because he lost most of bis Pro
gressive Ideas when he arrived In
There is every reason to believe that
Senator Penrose will be re-elected in
II Pennsylvania. Glfford Plnchot, his Bull
Moose opponent, proved so lamentably
weak at the primaries as to render his
candidacy ridiculous, and Representa
tive Palmer, the Democratic nominee, is
. facing a divided party, the division
being the result of the recent primary
..' election. Personally. Palmer is one of
the most disliked men in Congress, and
the Democratic fight against him is
California is another state In which
the third party has gone to pieces. Sen
ator Perkins is not a candidate for re
election, and the Republican race Is be-
. tween Representative Knowland and e.x-
Representative Needham. Francis J.
Heney hopes to be the Bull Moose can
didate, but Californians in Congress as
sert that "Heney is done." so far as
California politics Is concerned. He Is
opposed by Chester Rowell, of Fresno, a
' vigorous and talented newspaper editor.
Ex-Mayor Phelan Is an aspirant for
I the Democratic nomination. The proa,-
I; pects In California decidedly favor the
Republicans this year.
Stephenson Likely to Retire.
Senator Stephenson, of Wisconsin,
has not announced himself a candidate
for renominatlon and probably will re
tire next March. There are candidates
galore for his seat, and the Senatorial
situation in Wisconsin Is probably more
muddled than in any other state. Gov-
D ernor McGovern. who fell out with Sen-
" ator La Follette at the time of the Chi
cago convention two years ago, Is a
candidate for the Republican nomina
tion: the old line Republicans are
backing ex-Attorney-General Bancroft,
and the La Follette faction is looking
about for a candidate, not yet agreed
upon. The Bull Moose party in Wiscon
sin Is .not organized, and probably will
not be a factor in the Senatorial contest
this year. The Wisconsin Democracy is
badly split, but might elect the next
Senator, owing to the discord in the
other parties. If its own factions could
- be brought together.
The outlook In Wisconsin Is said to
be bad for the La Follette candidate,
', whoever ho may be, for the big issue in
the state Is high taxes, for which the
La Follette crowd is held responsible.
If the Democrats could come together
and nominate a good candidate, he
would receive many Republican votes,
as a big element In the Republican party
H in the state wants to have an end of
La Follotte and his methods. They do
: not want a La Follette man for Sen
ator. So complicated is the situation
that no sort of prediction as to the
Senatorial contest is worth the paper
I on which It is written.

who died recently, was a Kepumu-an.
His place was filled temporarily by the
appointment of Senator Camden, demo
crat, and another Democrat likely will
be elected next November.
Kansas promises to stage an inter
esting Senatorial fight, with Joe Bris
tow seeking re-election as a Repub
lican, being opposed in the Republican
primary by ex-Senator Curtis. Repre
sentative Murdock, the Bull Moose
leader In the House, also is after this
aeat, and a wide split is likely to re
sult from this rivalry, a split which
may result In electing whatever Demo
crat Is nominated at the primaries on
August 4. Brlstow Is In bad In Kansas,
for while he calls himself a Repub
lican, he ha8 usually acted with the
Progressives, and yet goes Into the Re
publican caucus. Actually, he Is neither
Republican nor Bull Moose, and is dis
approved by a large faction in both par
ties. Murdock. on the other hand. Is
strong with the Kansas Progressives,
and If the fight ultimately Is between
Brlstow. Murdock and a Democrat, the
Democrat will most likely win. If Cur
tis should defeat Brlstow for the Re
publican nomination, the Kansas situa
tion would be further complicated.
Burton, of Ohio. Not Candidate.
Senator Burton, of Ohio, has an
nounced that he will not be a candi
date for re-election. Already ex-Senator
Foraker always a storm center
has declared "his candidacy, and ex
Representative Ralph D. Cole has said
he will seek the Republican nomina
tion. Tho Bull Moose probably will
choose A. L. Garford. John J. Lentz
is after the Democratic nomination, as
are several others. Until the nomina
tions are made. It will be difficult to
alze up the Ohio situation.
Senator Sherman, of Illinois, is thus
far without Republican opposition.
Rhger Sullivan Is after the Democratic
nomination along with Lieutenant-Governor
O'Hara, and Raymond Robbing
wants the Bull Moose nomination. Sher
man has always been progressive In his
Republicanism, and his friends believe
he will be re-elected, especially if he is
opposed by Sullivan. Robblns ia not
expected to be a formidable factor.
From this review of the situation, it
appears that while the Republicans
may gain four seats In the Senate, from
Oregon, Nevada, Colorado and Arizona,
there Is a possibility that they may lose
in Kansas. Ohio. Illinois and Wiscon
sin, but the party leaders who are mak
ing preliminary plans for the cam
paign have strong hopes for all these
states save Kansas, and In that state
It is admitted anything is likely to
happen. However the situation is
viewed there seems to be no hope of a
Republican gain of six votes in the Sen
ate, and without a gain of six the Re
publicans must continue in the minor
ity in the upper branch of Congress
for another two years.
