Crounse Crounse with the aid of
the nntls who came Into the cau
cus yesterday morning when Thomp

Thursday was the day agreed upon
for the conclusion of the legislative
session but It Is doubtful If final ad
journment comes before Saturday
night The docks in the two houses
were stopped last night and the mem
bers simply recessed Instead of nd
Journlng Tho long senatorial dead
lock delayed necessary legislation and
much work remains unfinished
Knil Camo Unexpectedly
The end of the deadlock In reality
came unexpectedly two hours before
the last Joint ballot of tho session was
to be taken Seventy Republicans In
person or by proxy assembled in tho
caucus room of the Lindell hotel to
make what was believed by nearly all
to be a final vain effort to find a solu
tion of the three months bitter strug
gle Seven ballots had been taken
without result on the long term
when the first sensation of the day
came with the appearance of D B
Thompson the short term caucus nom
inee who formally announced his
withdrawal from tho race and sug
gested the name of Governor Dietrich
as his successor Reasonable assur
ance was given that his suggestion
would be rati lied Meanwhile the
North Platte light continued and Lo
renzo Crounse jumped to a prominent
place threatening a nomination at one
time by securing 35 votes The next
sensation was tho announcement of
Bdwnrd Rosewaters withdrawal In fa
vor of George W LInlnger of Omaha
Meanwhile J II Millard had ap
peared as a now North Platte candi
date and ho immediately became a
hot opponent of Crounse for the place
Mr Millards name was prominently
linked with that of Mr Dietrich as
a running mate and from then on the
caucus complexion seemed to Indicate
the speedy nomination of the two
The ten bolting Republicans had en
tered the caucus before Thompsons
withdrawal and It was then a com
plete caucus of the majority party
members Balloting was continued
when Mr Meiklejohn contributed his
mlto to the general upheaval by with
drawing He announced no preference
as to his successor in the fight but It
was understood that Ills action was In
favor of Mr Millard
M II Illnshaw then announced his
retirement Francis Martin followed
and nil tho former candidates were
then out of the way save Crcunse and
Nominations Are Made Unanimous
Four ballots were speedily taken
On tho first Governor Dietrich was
nominated almost by acclamation
Harlan receiving a few votes Two
more disclosed a closo light between
Millard and Crounse the second ballot
showing 32 to 34 In the formers fa
vor Then the third was taken and
Millard had gained a considerable fur
ther lead It was then moved to name
him by acclamation and this was done
on tho fourth ballot
Mr Thompson determined upon Ids
withdrawal yesterday Tho Repub
licans who have opposed him had some
time ago offered to lot Jilm name both
Bonutors if ho would stop out of the
way Dietrich was his choice The
Thompson men nlso were tho ones who
voted for Millard
Both Thompson and Roscwnter made
addresses to tho caucus in withdraw
ing their names
The caucus adjourned nt 1030 and
an hour and a half later Its action was
ratlfled at tho joint convention of the
legislature Nows of the caucus action
hud become generally known and there
was tremendous crowd In the hall of
