CONGRESS LIKELY TO BE REPUBLICAN Election Returns Indicate Dem ocrats Lose Control of Both Houses. New York. Unofficial returns from Tuesday' election left in doubt wheth er the democrat or republican would control the next congre. Party managers on both aide pre dicted they would bare substantial working majoritle, but the return showed the lineap mo clone that the scale might easily be turned In favor of either party. Th governorship of New Tork, too, was surrounded with the same uncer tainty. The contest between Gover nor Whitman and hi. democratic op ponent. Alfred E. Smith, wa ao close that it appeared the soldier vote would settle 1L . On the face of returns, republican have gained seven seat In the senate and lost one Republicana elected to take the place of sitting democrats were Ball In Delaware, in place of Saulsbury; Gooding, In place of Nu gent In Idaho; Phlpps In Colorado, in place of Shafroth; McCormick in Illi nois, in place of Lewis; Capper in Kansas, in place of Thompson; Keyes In New Hampshire, In place of HolIlv and Spencer in Missouri, over former Governor Folk. The republican appeared to have lost to Former Governor Walsh the place now held by Senator Weeka in Massachusetts. With tbe results incomplete, Henry Ford waa running behind Truman H. Newberry, former assistant secretary of the nary, hi republican opponent for the aenate in Michigan. In the election for the house. For mer Speaker Cannon waa returned to hi seat from Illinois for what will be his 22d term; Meyer London, the only socialist in the house, was defeated by Former , Representative Henry M. Goldfogle, democrat, running with republican Indorsement The lose of the socialist seat, however, waa offset by the election of another socialist, Victor Berger, of Milwaukee. Berger is under indictment, charged with hav ing violated the espionage law. All of the socialist candidates in New Tork were beaten, among them Morris Hillqult. candidate for mayor a year ago. The surprise of the election wss tbe possibility that Speaker QIark had been defeated in his home district in Missouri. WITHYC0MBE, McNARY LEAD Governor and U. S.
