The daring dash of the German squadron indi- cates that the prolonged inactivity of the larger units of the German fleet has been broken, but much satisfaction is expressed that the cruiser Halcyon, by the clever seamanship of her commander, es- caped from a tight corner practically uninjured. There is a disposition among naval men to be- lieve that no serious raid was intended, but that the Germans hoped to induce British warships to follow them, and, by laying mines as they retired, to eaten some of the bigger ships, as they did the sub- marine D-5.

El Paso, Tex., Nov. with two executives, had two capitals today. Neither of them was Mexico City. Gen. Camtnza, who for several days has been at Puebla, between Mexico City and Vera Cruz, today ordered his cabinet ministers, with the archives of the gov- ernment, to proceed there. The other capital is at Aguascalientes, scene of 'the recent conference of revolu- tionary chiefs. Gen. Eulallo Gutierrez, elected by the convention as provisional president, officiated at that city. With the admitted split between Car- ranza and Villa there came today the tak- ing of sides by the various chieftains. Claims Several Leaders. The Carranza general consulate here to- night announced that several of the most Important leaders had Joined the Car- ranza side, among them Gen.

It is definitely announced that the Germans have given up their positions along the Yser, having been driven out there by the flooded coun- try and the gunfire of the allied troops and warshJps. The Germans, however, have kept up their attacks on the allies' linea around Ypres, where the British troops are fighting. Although there ia evidence that the new main effort of Emperor William's forces to break through at this point has not yet real- ly commenced, the Germans continue to bring up reinforcements, and under the eyes of the emperor are preparing to make another big attempt to get through to the coast. Allies Strongly Reinforced. From the coast to Lille, a. compara- tively short battle line, the Germans have eleven army corps, roughly half a million men. That the allies have been throwing fresh forces Into Belgium is indicated in today's official account from the Britfeh front, which speaks of both forces from home and Indian troops in that area of hostilities, and adds: "Reinforcements of every description have been sent to meet the threatened attack." Allies Make Considerable Progress.

"These valiant generals have made ef- fective a resignation that has never been presented or forwarded by me, and which I have never presented, and they have even gone so far as to appoint a presi- dent. And by this last act they have fallen into a trap prepared for them by some of the Madero congressmen." 17 WAHSHIPS REPOBTED SUNK. Naval Battle in North Sea Between Brit- ish and Germans Rumored. Special to The Washington Post, Ottawa, Nov. is reported tonight that a great battle has been fought in the North Sea be- tween the British and German fleets, and that seventeen ships have sunk. No confirmation can be obtained from government officials here. Politicians of all parties busied themselves yesterday explaining how and why the unexpected de- velopments of Tuesday came about. The singular thing about the polit- ical situation is that Democrats from the President down claim the result as a "Democratic while Republicans, delighted over the wedge they have driven into the solid ranks of their enemy, forecast their utter rout in 1916. Both sides appear to be satisfied, and plans will now be laid by the Democrats to reeleet the President two years hence, and by the Re- publicans to prove to the country that he is not unbeatable; that rather, he is responsible through his policies forced upon the Con- gress, for the imrest that found in the votes of protest Tues- day last. Success Unexpected. In the jTUuernatorfa] elections the Re- publicans BHptured States that had been conceded to their ouponents. This was notable in New York and Ohio. In Cali- fornia, however, the latest returns indi- cate the election of former Gov. Hiram Johnson, one of the radical Progressives at the country. Democrats elected their governors in thirteen States, and Repub- licans In'seventeen. At Odds Over House Majority. The Democratic control of the Senate is Increased from a majority of ten to twelve, although two doubtful districts depending upon the final count may chansre this slightly. The Democratic majority of 145 in the House has been reduced to 37 over the Republicans, ac- cording- to the claims of. Tom Pence, in charge of Democratic headquarters, last night. This majority In the next House is fixed at 23 by the presa asso- ciations and runs down to lesa than fif- teen by a number of independent polit- ical experts. But, -whatever may be the exact figures, the Democrats -will continue to control Congress through- out the remainder of this administra- tion, and will be responsible to the people for all legislation that may be enacted. Extra Session Unnecessary. The results of Tuesday will make the assembling of Congress !n extra ses- sion before December unnecessary. This was to have been done In order to put through legislation to carry out policies the President had not yet been able to crystallize into statutes. It will be interesting to watch. Republican leaders observed yesterday, whether the President will be as powerful now that the elections are over as he has been during the past 21 months of hia administration. There will be more Independence of thought and action in the coming session and in the next Congress. A smaller ma- jority Inevitably results in better and more considered legislation.

New York, Nov. Washington dispatch to the New York Tribune says: Republican leaders here already have their eyes on Gov.-elect Whitman as the presidential nominee of 1916.

James M. Col's poli- cies, with which he sought to maintain himself in the executive mansion at Co- lumbus. Buckeye State voters also dem- onstrated their aversion to the policies of the national administration, which throughout the campaign have been used as a keynote to all addresses delivered by Democratic campaign speakers and ad- herents. Gov. Cox's Plea Failed. Early In the campaign Gov. Cox sought to change the current of the contest by appealing for support for the national administration. The answer Is found in the overwhelming majority for Warren G. Harding for Senator, the comfortable margin of votes by which Frank B. Wil- lis attained the governorship, and Increased representation In the House of Representatives, which heretofore has stood 19 Democrats to 3 Republicans, and which now will show 13 Republicans to 9 Democrats. Next to this, probably the most signifi- cant feature, as shown on the face of complete returns, Is the return to the ranks of the Republicans of an element that a few years ago listened to the wild preachings of a now down-and-outer that was either nonsense or revolution Progressives Relegated to History. The Progressive element was so rele- gated to the background in yesterday's election that Progressivism In Ohio now is almost a matter of history. An Issue that was used quite suc- cessfully by the Republicans in their appeal to the voters in combating the champions of Gov. Cox and the nation- al administration, was the Imposition of a -war tax in times of peace. The psychological influence of the Republican victory already is apparent.
