Upon Their Result Depends the Choice of Over a Score of Senators- Names of States and Candidate*. A GREAT YKAK FOB POLITICS. Although 1S94 is what is known as an "off year" among politicians, it promises to equal in importance those in wliich presidents arc elected. The state legislatures chosen next November will elect upward of twenty United States senators, and an entire new house of representatives is to be voted for. It will thus bo Been that the people will again have an opportunity to remake both branches of conpress. Tho workers of both parties are consequently very active in nil of the close states, especially where a sonatorship is at stake. When tho electors understand the great national issues involved the probability is that local questions will cut a small fig-ure in the contest. It bids fair to bo a strict party fig-fat on federal lines. Retiring Senator*. The senators whose terms expire March 4, 1895, are: John T. Morgan, of Alabama; James H. Dorry, of Arkansas: Edward O. Wolcott, of Colorado; Anthony Higgles, of Delaware; George L. Shoup, of Idaho; fihelby M. CulJora, of Illinois; James F.

Iowa has already elected Congressman Qreer to succeed Senator "Wilson. Virginia has elected IoL Martin to fill the place of Eppa innton. Kentucky has chosen Senator Lindsay to succeed himself. The eglalature of Louisiana will also have the naming- of the successor to Judge White. Senator WalthaU will resume the senatorshlp lu 1895. Tho State Contest*.

Arkansas has Its state election on September a, and will vote for all state, judicial, courts, township officers, ono associate Justice of the supreme court and a legislative election which •will choose tha successor to Ssnator Berry.

On tlie lirst ballot ono Juror voted for the defense and hun;,' out for a time, but his colleagues thought lie did it more for the sake of argument than because he was strongly in favor of Col.
