senatr in the next congress w,as pre
dicted today by Senator Miles Poin
dexter. chairman 'of the republican
senatorial committee, who returned
to Washington from a trip through

Senator Poindexter said he was
convinced that the republicans not
only would retain the senate seat
they now have, but that they woulcf
gain some from the democrats. rHc
particularly, denounced the claim of
the democrats that they would elect
a successor to Senator Jones of

also declared the republicans had .a
food chance to elect 'senators in

Democrats who are having the bat

in these states are Nugent of Idaho.

refused to rufi for re-election be
cause lie is out of sympathy with his
party cn the league issue.
Predicts New Gains.
"I have made a very careful est
aminatioii of conditions in all statesj
where the senatorial election ii at alf
uncertain," said Senator Poindexter,
"and upon this I feel satisfied, that
the republicans will, retain all of the
slate they now hold, and will gain
several states now held by ..demo
i "I understand it has been said by
some democratic leaders, that Wash
ington 'will elect a democratic sen
ator and thatAVashington and the
Pacific coast and Rocky mountain
slates are for the league of nations.
This opinion evidently comes from
those ho do not live in that section
and are not familiar with conditions.
NV tme in the sate of, Washington,
who is well-informed, lias any doubt
that it will go republican both for
the presidential and senatorial tick
ets. We will gain a seat in Idaho
and in Colorado, and have excelk t
prospects of gaining seats in Ari
zona, California and also in Nevada
and Oregon. We expect also to
gain a seat in Kentucky, and there
are several other states, not neces
sarjKto mention, where we have a
very good chance of gaining seats,
but in Kentucky the strong proba
bility is that the republican for the
senate will be elected. ,
No Doubt About Outcome.
"The people realize that the elec

candidate for president boast in his
