Exact Standing or the Legislature Ap
pears to Be in Doubt ,
STATE FUSION TICKET IS
Both Parties Pot fortli Cluims that
Leaves the V. S. Seuntorshlp Mutter
in Doubt The Mute uiitl Congressional
Vote aa Far as Received.
At this writing there Is claim on
the spart of both parties of the Nebras
ka legislature-elect. The Omaha Bee
"Both houses of the next legislature
are.republlcan. Th"e United States sen
ator elected to succeed William V.
Allen will be a republican. This has
been decided by the returns from the
various senatorial and legislative dis
tricts which give the republicans an
undisputed majority in each house of
the legislature. One by one districts
which were represented in the last
legislature by fuslonists have reported
the election of republican members as
the official figures have been compiled.
The republican majority on. joint bal
lot , according to the best available
returns , is fifteen. The republican ma
jority in the senate is nine , there be
ing twenty-one republican senators as
against twelve fusionlst senators. The
republican majority in the house is
six , there being fifty-three republican
members as against forty-seven fusion
members. The joint session will there
fore consist of seventy-four republi
cans and fifty-nine fusionists. "
Omaha Bee : "With returns com
plete from forty-three counties and
practically complete returns on the
rest of the state Chairman Schneider
of the republican state committee con
cedes the election of Poynter , fusion ,
for governor by 1,000 votes. It is pos
sible that the figures may vary 200
from this , but hardly more. Returns
on the rest of the state ticket indicate
that the candidates are running about
the same as the head of the tif-ket.
The election of fusion congressmen in
the Third , Fourth , Fifth and Sixth dis
tricts is Indicated by the returns be
yond hope of a change. "
'The.Omaha World-Herald thus sums
"All Interest now centers in the con
test for the Nebraska legislature. The
World-Herald prints today a corrected
list of the members who , according to
advices received by the World-Herald ,
have received a majority of the votes
In their districts. According to this
list the republicans have IS and the
fusionists 15 in the senate. The re
publicans have 48 and the fusinnists
52 in * the house. This would give the
fusionists 67 votes on joint ballot ,
which is the exact number necessary
to elect a United States senator. " li

LOXDO.V , Nov. 14. The revelations
made at the inquest over the body of
Harold Frederic , correspondent of the
STew York Times , have aroused feeling
against Christian Scientists. Canon
lUton. preaching in Westminster Abby.
attracted attention to the matter by a
vehement protest against the growth
of Scientists and kindred sects. Many
of his fashionable congregation are
well known to be Chribtiau Scientists ,
among them Lady Dunmore and Lady
Canon lliton warmly denounced "the
greedy belief in quackery , which is
now prevalent , " and , in emphasizing
the fact that this spirit of credulity is
growing up witb the enormous expan

cultured city of the most progressive
nation in the world , yet parts of Bos

and astrologers. " ' j
As an instance of this he said : "A

Queen Victoria recently expressed her \
views on the marriages of members of
the English aristocracy with Ameri
can girls. She confessed that she. at
first viewed these marriages with some
anxiety , but added that her fears had
since been completely allayed. The
queen now thinks that American girls :
from the breadth of their education ,
independence and rapid changing life
are better able to adapt themselves tea
a new environment than the more
stereotyped English girls. The queen
also thinks it unfair to insinuate that
mercenary motives are the frequent
cause of the marriages of impoverished
noblemen to heiresses.
