THE DALLES, OREGON, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 1894.
WAS A CLEAN SWEEP
Republican Majorities Seem
GROWING LARGER ALL THE TIME
Chances for Bis Election as Governor of
California Sntro Elected Mayor
of San Francisco.
Washington, Nov. 7. The loss of
Kansas, New Jersey and South Carolina
reduces the present democratic total in
the senate from 44 to 41. The present
republican strength in the senate of 38
promises to be increased by senators
from New Jersey, KanBas, Montana,
Washington and Wyoming, the last three
being vacancies. The republicans are
likely to lose Nebraska. This makes a
gain of five and a loss of one, or a net
gain of four, raising the republican total
to 42. The populists now have three
senators. The returns indicate for them
in South Carolina and Nebraska, making
their total five. Senators Jones and
Stewart, of Nevada, have of late affiliated
with the populists, so the populist
strength may be increased and the re
publicans decreased by two. An esti
mate of the next senate by Chairman
Babcock gives the republicans 44 out of
88 senators. He counts upon Peffer's co
operation to organize.
The Next Senate.
Washington, Nov. 7. Chairman Bab
cock, of the republican congressional
committee, claims the republicans will
organize the next United States senate.'
His information is that the Tennessee
legislature will send a republican to suc
ceed Harris. Babcock also had a dis
patch stating, Denny, republican, in the
seventh Kentucky district, is elected by
225. This is Ashland district, formerly
represented by Breckinridge.
A dispatch from Chairman Holnian, of
the South Carolina state committee, and
Congressman Settle says: "We have
carried the state if we can hold it."
Senator Faulkner, chairman of the
- democratic congressional committee,
concedes the house to the republicans by
66 to Tf plurality. The senate will not
be republican, he says, unless that parly
carries Tennessee, which is still uncer
tain, or unless Senator Peffer votes with
New York, Nov. 7. Returns indicate
the republicans will gain a United States
senator in each of the following states :
Montana, Washington, Wyoming, Kan
8as, New Jersey and West Virginia.
The Next House.
Washington, Nov. 7. The republican
congressional committee has given out
an estimate claiming that in the 54th
congress tne republicans will nave a
majority of the delegations of 30 states,
the democrats 12, and the populists 1,
witn Maryland divided evenly, giving
the republicans more than a two-thirds
majority by states should the next presi
. dential election be thrown into the
The Figures Still Growing'.
New York, Nov. 7. A survey of the
returns this morning confirms the hasty
estimates and partial returns of last night
in the West, Northwest and of the
Pacific coast. The republican landslide
is overwhelming, and republican gains
in the Southwest are of such magnitude
as to suggest almost a revolution. Ohio
has given the largest republican majority
in its history. It ia thought the official
returns will show a plurality of 140,000
to 150,000.' Wisconsin has elected a re'
publican state ticket and nine out of ten
congressmen. In Illinois the democrats
are crushingly defeated, the state going
republican' by from 40,000 to 50,000
plurality. The congressional election is
almost solidly republican. Indiana is
republican by from 20,000 to 25,000
Admiral Oherardl Retired.
Washington, Nov. 7. Secretary Her
bert has issued a formal order retiring
Admiral Gherardi, senior admiral of the
navy, and commandant at the navy
yard, on the 10th inst. The following
details are also made : Superintendent
of naval academy, Captain Philip
Cooper, now in command of the United
States ship San Francisco. Cooper ia

one of the youngest captains. The sec
retary expects to detail Admiral Walker

Commodore L. H. Pythian has been
detailed as superintendent of the naval
observatory, to relieve Captain McNair.

and retiring board. Captain Allan" V.
Reed to command Portsmouth navy-
yard. Captain H. M. Shepard to com

the South Atlantic station.
San Francisco, Nov. 7. Returns re
ceived in this city up to 8 a. m. do not
materially change figures sent out at 3
o'clock. Budd, democrat, for governor,
still leads by- nearly 7,000 votes in San
Francisco. Chairman Gould, of the
democratic state central committee, es
timates his plurality will be over 12,000,
which will be sufficient to elect him.
All indications point to a smaller vote for
Estee, rep., in the interior than was ex
pected. Republican managers concede
the city to Budd, but are hopeful that
the country vote will be large enough to
overcome Budd's plurality. Budd's as
sociates in the state fight appear to have
been sacrificed ip his interests. In this
city they are behind the head of the
ticket, and the interior returns indicate
a similar condition. It is apparent that
the republicans have elected six or seven
congresemen, Magnire in the fourth dis
trict being the only democrat who will
represent California in the next con
gress. He leads his republican oppo
nent, Shannon, by about 4,000 votes.
Returns indicate that the next legisla
ture will be republican by a big major
ity. At 11 o'clock this morning Chairman
Cornwall, of the republican state central
committee, was seen at headquarters.
and when asked to give an opinion as to
the outlook in the state, said that the
returns were coming in so slowly and
were so conflicting that it would be im
possible to give anything like a definite
statement until tonight or tomorrow
morning. The count in this city had
reached such a stage, however, that the
indication favored the election of Budd,
dem., for governor. Mr. Cornwall was
of the opinion that the remainder of the
democratic state ticket would be defeat
ed. He said the legislature would ba
certainly republican, thus insuring the
return of a republican successor to Sena
tor Perkins. The republican chairman
was also equally certain of the election
of six out of seven congressmen in the
state. He said that the principal fight
had been made on the election of the
republican candidate for congress, and
he considered altogether that the state
had done its duty to the republicans.

Fort Arthur's Peril.
London, Nov. 7. A Shanghai dis
patch says it ia rumored the Ping Yang
squadron is in Port Arthur. The Chi
nese report that the Japanese are rap
idly advancing in the rear of Port Ar
thur, and that a strong Japanese fleet is
outside the harbor. It is probable Port
Arthur and the Chinese fleet will fall
into the hands of the enemy. Chinese
deserters are arriving in New Chang in
large numbers panic stricken. A Japan
ese flying squadron is reported to be 100
miles off New Chwang'.
CAUTIOUSNESS OF ELEPHANTS.
The Animal's Acuteness in JLocatlng; II Id-
One elephant, which the omcer com
manding six-eleven battery of the Royal
artillery lent to assist in extricating
some camels which were being engulfed
in the quicksands, "showed an amount
of sagacity which was positively mar
velous. It was with the utmost diffi
culty, says a foreign exchange, that we
could get him to go near enough to at
tach a drag rope to one camel I wanted
to rescue. In spite of our, being about
fifty yards from the bank of the river,
he evinced the greatest anxiety, while
his movements were made with ex
Despite coaxing, persuasive remon
strance, and, at last, a shower of heavy
blows dealt upon his head by the exas
perated mahout, this elephant stub-
Dornly refused to go where he was
wanted, but, with his trunk shoved out
in front of him, kept feeling his way
with his ponderous feet, placing them
before him slowly, deliberatelv and
methodically, treading all the while
with the velvety softness of a cat and
taking only one step at a time. Then
suddenly he would break out into a
suppressed kind of shriek and retreat
backward in great haste.
Wnen the animal had nearly com
pleted a circuit of the ground with the
same caution and deliberation, he ad
vanced to within ten yards of the poor
camel, but not another inch would he
move, though several men were talk
ing; between him and the camel with
out any signs of the ground giving way.

This remedy seems to have ' a peculiar
power in effecting rapid cures not only
in cases of ia grippe, but in all diseases
of throat, chest and lungs, and has cured
cases of asthma and hay fever of long
