Absolute control of the house by

The early returns pointed to the
election of at least two and possibly
as many as six farmer-labor house
candidates in Minnesota.
Representative Berger, socialist,
Wisconsin, the only member of his
parly in the present house, was re
elected. The returns gave the republicans
the best of it in the upets In both the
house and senate. But it appeared
that final reports from all districts
would be necessary before there could
be a determination whether President
Coolidge could expect a real working
majority in the next congress.
Returns from 390 of the 435 con
gressional districts gave the republi
cans an actual majority 218, but in
this total are included nearly a score
of the La Follette insurgents.
The democrats, meantime, had made
certain of 170 seats and the farmer
labor party of two.
On the basis ot these returns the
republicans had made a net gain of
16 over the democrats, recapturing 20
seats as against four now held by re
publicans which were moved over into
the democratic columns.

their election practically certain. In
the six remaining contests, all in west

Other republican candidates for
state office fared similarly in the re

progressive, however, has apparently
been elected, in the person of O. P.

Oregon voters erased the state in
come tax law from the statute books,
it is indicated by the returns.
The state at large, outside of Mult
nomah county, however, voted to fre
tain the tax. It was not thought likely
that the country vote could overcome
the strong majority in Multnomah
county for repeal Of the tax.
At the same time the state elector
ate, by decisive action, apparently
turned down the referendum proposal
to make unlawful the manufacture and
sale of oleomargarine and butter sub
stitutes. The proposed amendment to the
workmen's compensation act likewise
was "snowed under" at the polls.
