She, however, stands fourteenth in point of increase. Kow tlio total population of the country, in round numbers, is There will be changes by the official count, but it will not vary much either way. Ten years ago the numberof members of tho house of representatives was increased from 293 to This was on the basis of a popula- tion or 1W.CGO to each representative in con- gress. The admission of six new states has increased the membership of the house to 332. If tlie honse ia to be retained at its present membership, the ratio of population would be increased to for each member. There is talk of increasing the membership Of the house to 400, but in this o vent the hall -will either have to bo enlarged or the the desks most be and the members occupy benches They would never consent to the latter The hall is now over-crowded and as the meirbersbip is already so large that it is unwieldy, tlie chances are that the ratio will be inci cased and the representation will re- mam 15 it 13. Hence, assigning to each state as many mem- feers as i'Jo.OOO will go into its population giv- ing to e.ich btato that has less than in- one member, yon Save 30G members. Then the remaining twenty-six members to the states having the largest remainder after the division, and you have the number of each state will be entitled to in theneit congress. This is, of course, basing oil calculations on the, supposition that the houso will remain as at present and tho ratio population increased as mentioned above. Georgia will hold her ten members. Alabama will retain her eight. The Carolinos will each lose one member. Kew York will lose three. 1 Pennsylvania, Illinois, Michigan, Texas, Virginia, Tennessee, New Jersey, Mississippi, Louisiana, Maryland, "West Virginia, Con- necticut, New Hampshire, Florida, Maine, Vermont, Khode and Ne- vada will hold their present representation. Ohio loses two. Indiana, Massachusetts, Iowa, Kentucky and lose one each. Missouri, Kansas, California, and Oregon gain one member each. Minnesota two members. Nebraska gains three. Of the now states South Dakota and Wash- ington have two members each, while North Dakota, Montana, "Wyoming and Idaho will liave one each. Thus It will be seen that all tho states gain- ing members, with but two exceptions, are ro- piibbcan states. The democratic states gaining are Missouri and Arkansas. All the others are_western republican states. Now to the congressional representation of sach state add two, for the senators from each, and you have the ote of tho electorial college. In 1883 u tras401. It 1 SOU it will be 4iiO, if tbe house retains its present membership. While m ISbS a majority was 201, the admis- sion of the new states will make a majority in the next electorial college 211. Here is 3 table showing the electoral college representation according to the above calcuia- tions in Ib92 compared with 1S88. Total......._________________________ However, all this means tf the republicans carry all the states they did in 1S88 they will tho above majority, But the chances arc they will not do it. Now transfer Xow York from the republican to tho democratic column and wo have: Re- publican, 21-4, democratic, It is now claimed that lihode Island is dom- ociatic. Transferring its electoral vote to tbe domocratic column it would make a tie vote of Hov. ever, "without Rhode Island, but with Now Yorfc and Indiana, the two doubtful states, added to tho democratic column of 1888, the vote would stand: Democratic, 220; re- publicarr, 200. Connecticut is a doubtful state, although the damocrats got it the last time, but if the democrats c.m get New York and Indiana they can ailord to lose Connecticut's six votes and still tho electoral vote will stand: Democratic, 214; republican, J08. But in the next the democrats must carry both Now York and Indiana to win. Tbnt i'j, counting on the otber states voting as usual. However, it is claimed some of the northwestern states will come into the demo- cratic column at the next presidential election. But tliat was claimed last time. Wisconsin and Michigan were counted on, but did not mature, notwithstanding tbe fact that each had a-man :n Mr. Cleveland's cabinet, and each promised to turn over their respective states. The democrats in can leave Conncticut to itself. They must carry New Yorfc and Iitdiaua or lose. Of course by scooping in a block of western states thov could win without either, but thut is not propable. However tho tariff question might make many converts in tho west. All in all the returns from the new census are highly favorable to tha republican party. In ISfaS if tbe democrats had carried New York they would have won without Indiana. Now they must carry both New York and Indiana, together with the states they carried to win. Or else t'aoy muat carry New York, all the states they carried in 1888, and make giins in the northwest. But New York aud-Indiana on a square open vote are both domocratic states and, after the record oE the Harrison act minis tation, with a strong ticket, there is no reason why the demo- crats should not roll up the old '84 majority in both states. ______ E.

WASHINGTON, September is expected Senator Sanders will conclude bis speech upon the conference report on the land grant for- feiture bill tomorrow, and that the report will then be agreed to. If it is then not too late in the day, Mr. Sawyer will call up the anti- lottery bill, which has already passed the bouse. Otherwise, he will ask tho senate to dispose of tho private pension bills on the calendar, postponing tbe anti-lottery bill until Tuesday. So far as known, there will be no open opposition made to the passage of tbif> bill. Mr. Gibson, of Louisiana, will speab in its favor, and if any opposition develops on the floor, Messrs. Spooner and Casey, the latter of North Dakota, will support the measure. But it is Mr. Sawyer's hope that General Gibson's speech will be the only one delivered. Following the anti-lottery bill, on _the order of business adopted by the republican caucus, are the bills to repeal the timber cul- ture act, to establish private land courts, and for the relief of the supreme court and the labor bills. It is hardly probable that all these will be disposed of this week, but should it prove to be the case, rapid progress will be checked when the bill to transfer the revenue marine service from the treasury to the navy department, next on the programme, is reached. The bill 1ms beon discussed a num- ber of times during tbe session, but opposition always prevented a vote. So far as known, the opponents of the measure are atill equally determined that it shall not pass, and as they include some of tbe best tacticians on both sides of the senate, a long debate may be an- An hour every day, under the order adopted by the seuate last week, will be devoted to consideration of bills on the calendar, to which no objection is made. IN THE KOUSH. The opposition shown by the minority in the house to the consideration of the Langs- ton-Venable election case, bad tbe effect more strongly to determine the republican leaders that the house shall act upon that case, as well as upon the Miller-Elliot case. It has been urged upon the absent republican bars that the party could hardly afford to abandon the colored republican contestants, after seating a number of white republican members. A large number of telegrams have been sent to the absentees, requesting their at- tendance here, and if a quorum is obtained by Monday or Tuesday, it is their intention to- dispose of the two election cases without ar- gument, beyond tbe forty minutes talk allowed by the rules in each, case after the previous question is ordered. After tnat will follow the tariff: bill. Al- ready Chairman McKinley has prepareda way for speedy action upon tho bill by his resolu- tion, endorsed by last night's caucus, provid- ing fora suspension of tbe ordinary rules, and consideration of the bill by tbe house itself, instead of by a committee of the whole. The time-to be allowed to the consideration was left blank in tbo resolution, to be tilled in by the committee on rales. It is the goneral im- pression that not more than, two or three days at most will be so consumed, and that if a quorum is in attendance, the tariff bill will go to the conference before the ead of the- present week. __ NKW YORK, September TCindom left the Fifth. Avenue' hotel, thia evening, fc-r Mass., to join hia family. He received but few callers at the hotel during the day, and in the afternoon he announced to the representatives of tho pres? the plan ho had for the relief of the stringency in tho money market. As a result of his con- ference witli the banks, presidents and finan- ciers at the subtieaaury Saturday, Secretary "Windom said that he bad decided to receive proposals for the sale of Tours to the amount of the proposals to be received at the treasury department in "Washington at 12 o'clock Wednesday next, noon. Those "bbnds the secretary will purchase, if a reasonable price is asked for them. At the same time Secretary will offer to prepay for three-fourths of a year's interest on the cur- rency securities. Tho announcement of these offers will come from Washington over tbe secretary's signa- ture on Wednesday morning, where it will bo officially formulated. Secretary Windom said that it was not usual for statements ol the above kind to be made -before they emanated officially from Washing- ton, but owing to the anxiety of so many of the business community to know what was going to bo done by tho treasury department in tho premises, he thought it best to announce be- forehand, although it fras Sunday, his tions.

Ho is an aas who ia simply seeking notoriety, he south has been- hia pet hobby during tbe bree years lie has served in tho house. He as never lost an opportunity to wave tho [ocdy shirt vigorously, and to accuse the outhetn people of all kinds of crimes when- ver he could secure the floor on an election i. He wjll bo remembered as the man who IQ such a vigorous attack upon Governor don about a year auo, Georgia wereJto ereci an asylum for idiots, her gov- ruor would have to escape to tho mountains, r else he; would ho the first inmate." Ho Iso a vigorous attack upon the korgia, ?Congressmen, but Judge Crisp roved statements to be ,falee ndsodenpunced them. The Ohio blather- ate by Bllence acknowledged them to ba also. however, made capital at home ut of speech by distributing it broadcast ver itfithout any evidence in it haft of the statements had been rovett j simply a seeker after notoriety, nd Hiatus-why he denounced Quay. He be- icved- would make him a big man, so to peak. m his district, and it probably will, >r the pttbple of that section must be a queer lass to send such a man to congress. Kennedy was at one time president of tbe )bio stljto senate, and in that .position he ained first notoriety by deciding that eventeea was Ka quorum of thirty-six, when-ths question was upon tlie unseating f a democrat. He would entertain no appeal id trfe decision stood. He is Always seeking after notoriety, and he eems to have secured -it with a this jue. However, he narrowly escaped be- ing expelled from the houao, and in future will looked upon ns an outcast. But there are no believe his statements about Quay, o be Jalae. It waa simply tho impropriety of memLar of the house attacking a senator on, be of the house, which, ia directly con- rary teethe rules, that has caused the indig- I' Tbe Speeds Printed. Kennedy's speech appeared in The morning, but is not the speech hat foil like a bomb the republican camp ;en days ago. His furious arraignment of he senate has dissolved into what might bo, only-a pointed criticism. "What he solfl Quay lias been toned down, but it is Tha reference to Judas Iscariot is there, and he evicted criminal' remains, but Matt ty-'fc name has been entirely eliminated, and he is spoken of not as senator, but as chairman of tho national committee. All that part about the cloak of senatorial courtesy )eing a stench in tbe nostrils and a by-word the months of honest citi- zens is omitted. The observations m the purchasing of senatorial seats lave disappeared. Not a fragment of the fol- lowing sentence remains: "How, the boy who laugha at tho modern Boman and his monkey turns from a body, one-half of whose posts are occupied by members whose ibility to fill them is only measured by their ability to buy them." But the speech still contains discriminations of Quay that are absolutely raw, although the name has been omitted in order that no grounds maj be found to justify his (Kennedy's) expulsion from the j LIOUSO. In order to save himself from party censure, Kennedy strikes out the sentence which says: "The republican party cannot afford to' follow tho lead of a branded criminal." He [also leaves Quay's name out of the sentence which reads: "Tuo Judas who took thirty pieces of silver and went and hanged himself, has left- an example for Matt Quay that is well worthy of KENNEDY HAS FLUNKED. Kennedy has undoubtedly flunked, so to speak, but still the charges against Quay, although he is not referred to by name but as chairman of the national committee, are as damning as any ever printed in a domocratic newspaper. The Pennsylvania boss now stands under the charge from a congressman of his own party of being a thief, a criminal, who should have be in the penitentiary. Although mortified to escape expulsion the charges remain. They are printed officially. The simple bandying of epithets is not an acquittal of Quay. Kennedy may be a Black- guard and a as Quay has said. In- deed, Kennedy is; still he is a republican He has denounced Quay as a criminal, and now-Quay must either deny or stand convicted before tho country, and resign his seat in the senate. If be denies there aro men who claim they stand ready to furnish the proof tbafc he is a defaulter. Probably he fears this. If he Js innocent he can prove it. If he ia guilty the chnncea are he will allow tbe charges to go unanswered. WHAT QUAT SAID: All Senator Quay would say, when seen to- night, was that in printing the speech as be did, Kennedy has shown himself a coward in spite of his vaunted courage. He would say nothing further. Tho matter will probably come up in the house It is said tlie Pennsylvania congressman -will call attention to the speech, tomorrow by a resolution of some possibly to strike it out of the Record. However, in this event, Kennedy will be heard from. He will spring nis letters of commendation from prominent republicans all over the country, and there will he some very lively scenes. There seems to be no doubt, in the minds of every one that Kennedy has been used as a cat's-paw in, this whole matter by Heed and the force bill crowd, aad they will proba- bly furnish him protection in the event he is attacked. These men are actuated by a desire for revenge upon Quay for defeating the force bill. Beed is believed to be behind the whole matter, it being his scheme to break Quay's supremacy as the head of the republican ma- chine. Quay is opposed to Beed for president, and as Reed is now having himself boomed for the nomination, it is to hia interest to get Quay out of tbe way. Reed advised Kennedy to print the speech, and Reed probably had a liand in its preparation. The fight is just opening. Tbe decks are being cleared, for and there i3 going to be a little repub- lican Pernaps battle will open to- morrow. Certainly tho guns of both sides are loaded, and tho popping of a cap will put the batteries in action. THE BIM- DEAD. It has developed during a few days that the compound lard hill is a dead issue. It will be shelved in the senate, and the Paddock pure food hill adopted as a substitute. The Pad- dock bill simply provides that all goods shall be sold exactly Tor what they are worth, and they shall be branded as such. It was this understanding that Mr. Mason, who led the fight in the house against tho bill, stopped filibustenngand allowed the bill to go through. He had assurances it would be "fixed" in the senate. fThere are more poker players among the United States senators than probably any other legislative body of its size in the world. Of the eighty-four senators not less than twenty aro experts at the great American game, and although few of them play for large stakes they play often. Senators are like all ether men. They sometimes take a drop too much to drink, and occasionally a game ends In a row. Some time ago uvo of the most distinguished members of tho senate were engaged in a S10 limit game at a well-known uptown hotel. A western senator had imbided rather too much "extra and was playing recklessly. Ho caught a full house, and with it bucked against four queens in the hands of a 3STew England senator. The betting was lively, and tho chips piled up to something over a hun- dred dollars on the table, when the New Englander seeing the condition of his western comrade "called." As the New England man laid down his hand and reached for the chips tho wild and wooly westerner yelled out that he had made up hia hand from.the discards and was a cheat. In an instant the New Eng- land man was on his feet, a chair was hurled through the air and came down with a crash upon the head of the western man, flooring him. However the westerner was upon his feet in an instant and the two men grappled. Tables and chaira were knocked around pro- miscuously and the men rolled over and over upon the Hoor. When the others present did succeed inpartingthem thoNew England man was almost choked to death. That ended the gamo. There were apolo- gies the next day. The senators bow as they pass now, but seldom have a word to say to each other. The New England senat-or swore that night never to play another game of and up to date he has kept his pledge. In the next house there will be many new faces. Indeed it is estimated by old poli- ticians that not more- than half the members of tho present house will ,be returned to the next. From, the south the new members will be principally alliancomen. It is estimated that the south will send twenty-one alliance- men and about a dozen. non-allSanceinen. In thje north and west thero will also be many changes. Democrats will fill many of the seats now occupied by -re publicans, and even in the solid republican districts many new men will be sent. Tho best informed western, members of both parties say, notwithstanding there is considerable talk about the strength of the alliance in the northwest, the order will not elect a single member of congress, from that section. Leading democratic politicians claim that the party will have at least thirty majority in the next house. Indeed all the democrats believe this and there ia already much talk of who will be tho next speaker. The Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louis- iana and Texas members favor Judge Crisp, while he Is the second for aU the other democratic McMillen, of Tennessee; Springer, of Illi- nois; McCroary, of Kentucky, and Hatch, of Missouri, will probably oppose the fitoat Georgian, but as matters stand at present Judge Crisp would have as many votes iu a democratic caucus as all tho others combined. However, there is no telling what kind ot com- binations can be formed between now and the time of contest, but the chances are decidedly in favor of Judge Crisp beintr E. W. B. GOVEESOfi 3.

The Body of the Great Inventor Arrive) In Stockholm.. STOCKHOLM, September body of Captain John Ericsson was landed from the United States war ship Baltimore, at 2 o'clock this afternoon. The transfer was made with miioh ceremony. Upon arriving here Friday evening, tho Baltimore saluted the Swedish flag on passing the forts. Soon after the vessel had dropped anchor, the American minister went aboard to announce officially the programme for the ceremonies. The recep- tion committee, v, hich included three officers of the navy and four nephews of the deceased, met on board the Baltimore :30 p. m. today. Speeches were made by Captain Schloy, of the Baltimore, in delivering tho body to tho American minister; by tho latter in consigning it to Admiral Peyron, and by the admiral in accepting charge of the body. The remains were then transferred to a steam barge, draped in black and silver, which was commanded by a captain of the Swedish navy. The body was placed within a pavilion that had been erected for the purpose on the bridge of the vessel, to which it was carried by the sailors from the American war ship. The coffin was covered with wreaths. The procession of boats then formed. First Came Admiral Peyron and the capta'n and other officers of the Baltimore, a number of Ameri- can sailors, and then tho cntafalqae. As the procession of boats moved slowly along, min ute guns were fired by the Baltimore and by the forts on shore, while all tho vessels in the harbor hauled down, their flags to half mast. "When the funeral barge arrived at the landing stage, the governor of Stockholm formally received tbe body, which was then borne by American sailors to the large pavilion, handsomely decorated in black and gold, which had been erected near tho water's edge in the park. "While the body was being carried to the depot, the bells tolled and th military, which were to escort tbe remains t uitli the closing of the Mountain house, so if tlie president remains longer he will fnd the decidedly lonesome, to say nothing of the dif- ficulty of procuring meals at the country inns, the nearest of which is over a mile Irom lua cottage, which lias scarcely any comenieuces for cooking. During the coming week the president and Ms family will visit Johnstown. Uell's cap, Khodendoa park and one or two other points of interest in this vicinity. On these trips they will be the guests of the PennsyUama Rail- Company, wita George Boyd, assist- ant general passenger agent, as its represent- ative. _______> Railroad Wreck on tlie Missouri Pacific.
