Washington, Dec. 5 Assstant
Secretary Meiklejohn is not a candi
date for the United States Benate, as
in shown by the following letter ad-dret-sed
in unswer to a communicaiion
from Hon. W. T. Thompson. Central
City, Neb , representative in the state
legislature, inquiring if lie was a can
didate: "Washington, Dec. 1. My Dear
Thompson: 1 have the honor to ac
knowledge your esteemed favor of re
cent date, inquiring if I am or will be
a candidate for United States senator,
to which I answer no.
"Tho .South Platte territory is en
titled to a representative in the senate
oj the United States and the repub
licans should have noditliculty in mak
ing a choice from the many excellent
candidates who have already an
"Above all things I desire republi
can success in Nebraska.
"Personal ambition should always
be subservient to party interest and a
wise selection from this section of the
state will redound to the advancement
of the party and become a potent fac
tor in our politics.
'With renewed assurances of high
esteem and consideration. I am yours
very sincerely, G. D. Meiklejohn."
Two Treaties May He Signed.
Washington, Dec. 5. The impres
sion prevails here that the resujts of
the negotiations at Paris will be em
bodied in two or more treaties, instead
of one. There will be one actual peace
treaty, embodying nothing more than
the protocol points relating to the re
liquisbment of Spanish sovereignty
over Cuba and the Spanish West
Indies, Guam and the Philippines,
with the single exception of the pro
viso for the release of prisoners. All
th 3 other matters, those relating to
the renewal of the commercial treat
ies, the acquisition of cable and coal
ing stations and in fact all those ex
traneous matters that have been men
tioned as likely to bo incorporated in
the peace treaty, will form tbe subject
of a special treaty. This course is
likelv to be adopted in order to hastep
the conclusion of pence, for which
there is a great necessity, if for no
other reason than to secure tho release
of prisoners and the restoration of
tr-.de between Spain and the United
Mast Protect Foreigners.
Washington, Dec. 5. The secre
tary of elate has received a copy of a
decree recently issued by the empress
of China, having for its object the bet
ter protection of foreign residents in
that country. The decree says in part:
' "From the opening of ports to for
eign trade to the present time, for
eigners and Chinese have been as one
family, with undivided interests, and
since missionaries from countries are
living in the interior we have decreed,
not three or four times, but many
times, that the local officers must pro
tect them and that the gentry and
people of all provinces must sympa
thize with our desire for mutual be
nevolence; that they must treat them
truthfully and honestly, with the
hope of lasting relations."
