dispatch closed nt midnight with thoempcior
slowly sinking nnd the sad watchers around
him. Ho seemed to bo no better nor worse
until dawn came. Then he began to show
that ominous restlessness which physicians
rccognlro as u mortal sign In extreme illness.
Not that ho was In pain , or ho illd not evi
dently suffer at all. Tha ominous restless
ness Increased , nnd once more the room was
peopled with his sad family. Next to
her mother stood his daughter Sophia. She
yet held in her hand the paper which he yes
terday placed there on which ho had written
with faint writing , "Remain ns noble and
peed as-you hnvo been In the past. This Is
the lust wish ot jour dilng father. " Now
nnd then u stnllo flitted over the emperor's
face which wore nn expression showing

The last nourishment ho took was an
orange ; the last present ho received with n
grateful smile was n basketful of water-
lillles , such ns ho was wont to find in the
Havel when ho bathed there every summer.
Ono of the last slips of paper on which ho
wrote wns addressed to Dr. Hovell , whom
ho nskod how hlsjmlsc went and whether he
wns satisfied. After thutthu breathing be
came fainter until It wns scarcely percep
tible. The emperor took the chancellor's
hand aud ccntly taking the
empress' trembling white hand laid
it into that of the powerful
minister. The preacher of the garrison ol
Potsdam had been admitted nnd administered
the last sacraments. Mattel s w cut sadly on ,
iho physicians watching sharply until 1C
o'clock eamo when nnd what follows came

His head luised by largo pillows , Ijis wan
hand on the white coverlet nervously twitch

knelt and remained In that position dm hip
the last hour , watching the faint gasps oi
breath. At the foot of the bed knelt his foui
daughters , Prlnco Henry and his two daugh
ters-in-law. Thu chaplain softly murmured
the litany. Some white loses weio on the
coverlet. At some distance wci c the mem
bers of the household. Every flvo minute'
Sir Morrcll and the other physicmns standIng -
Ing behind him felt the emperor's pulse , ami
iho expression on his face show cd it wnc
growing weaker. The breathing grow slow
and so faint that the phvslolnn was obliged
to place his ear close to the etnpeior's lips.
At II o'clock Sir Motrcll signed to the
empiessvvho fervently kissed tbo hand ol
the dying ompcior nnd it was ousotvcdhe

as if in ptiiyer. An hour afterwards Piiuco

With the new Empoior William. The second

loose vvhito coat , a linnet wie.ith on hi'

over a cavalry sword. Only the foichcud ,

countess will bo remembered by many old
Now Yorkers ns Miss Mary Lee. It may be
said she will now become the power behind
the tin ono vv 1th the now emperor nnd empress ,
who , by the way , also becomes nn Empress
Victoila. This Is well known In proper
quui tcrs to he a great mistake and n silly
story. Equally silly w Ijl bo any story of nil
estrangement between the now emperor and
his mother. Ho never wns n demonstrative
child or man. His hauteur and coldness is
constitutional. Almost tha sumo cause that
inudo Lord liyroti peculiar made the present
cinpetor ns a prince peculiar. In birth
his left arm was Injured , nnd it 1ms
nlwajs been practically paralyzed , so that he
was obliged to almost wholly use his right
arm. This defect more or less soured his
disposition and In very early life , say Her-
liners , parental or mutcrctml sympathetic In
dulgence tended to make him headstrong
nnd wilful , but ho Is as utTectlonato with his
mother ns ho can bo with anybody , nnd there
is no reason to suppose his dislike to Eng
lish wujs taints his estimation of her or ever
her motherly Influence.

The Neue Fi clo Presso of Vienna , received
hero to day , seemingly rev ivcs the stori
that the throat affection was the result ol
youthful Indiscictions. It publishes an old
lotier from Prof iiillroth , dated March U7 ,
in which the eminent physician expresses hi !
conviction that In concealing the true nature
of the emperor's malady Sir Morrlll Mnckcn
7io was actuated solely by motives of dell
cacy , policy and humanity.
[ Frederick William Nicholas Charles Em
pcror of Germany was the eldest son of tin
late Emperor William , who died on the Oil
of last March The Emperor rrcdctick wn-
born at Potsdam on the anniversary of tin
battle of Lcipsig , October 1 , ! * ' . Hi-
father was the son of Ft edcnck William II !

Sttclitz and brother to the Into King o
Prussia , bom March 21. , 1707. His mothci
was the Princess Augusta of Snxe-WIomar
His parents wcro married itf Ib29. HI1
mother has always been an outs'poken cnemj
of Bismarck and bitterly opposed to hi1
policy. It issald that the relations betwcci
liis father and mother wcro of the most un
pleasant kind nnd thit of Into years theii
only mccttnits wet oof the most formal ser
nnd onlv occurred once in each twenty-foui
hours , In the emperor's ' study.
His military education was begun before
he wns nine jeaisold At ten ho was made
a sub-lieutenant and invested with the otdet
of the lil.ick Eaglo. According to the tra
ditlons of the nice of Hohcn ollerns he wa-
taught two of the trades , that of hookbindci
and carpenter being selected. His tutor vvai
the eminent Dr. Curtlns. His boyhood wai
chiefly spent at Hnbelsberg. near Potsdam
the place of his birth and dentil. On the 7tl
of November. 18411. ho entered the Unlvcr
sity of Honn , for the purpose of completing
his military education. In 1 50 ho lltst vis

Chicago could stand the strain nnd not stag

emergency nnd promises ample room to all
who are to follow. It is n genteel , quiet , bill
earnest gathcting. The enthusiasm hns not
jet broken out with brass bands mid ban
ners , but it is none the less present , though
surprcsscd. The most marked feature of the
situation Is the friendly feeling between the
followers of the various candidates nud the
earnest pledges thut there will bo no soreheads
heads whatever may be the result. The
neatest appionch to apcrbity Is between the
henchmen of Gicahum nnd Hariison , but

CHIC \oo , Junoir > . The probability thai
John M. Thurston of Nebraska would be
made temporary chairman of the convention
and Wurticr Miller of Now York pormanenl
chairman , becnmo this evening almost n cer
tainty. Those who were unacquainted wltli
Thurston , had apparently settled upon
Patrick Egan , ex-prcsideut of the Irish Na
tional league und dclcguto fiom Nebraska ,
as the most available man. One of the na
tional committccmen remarked that the se
lection of Egun would be a stiokoof policj
tlmt would be of good service to the party In
the camp ilgn nnd boa well deserved honor te
the position of trust ho hus held among his
compatriots. Mr. Egan wiis seen this even
ing and said while ho appreciated the honor
sought to bo bestowed upon hint by his
ft lends , the Nebraska delegation would be
solid for Thui ston.
At Generul Harrison's headquarters to
day , it was emphatically denied that theie
had been aeonloienco between the friends
of Harrison and Gresham. John C. New
said : "No confluence was held nnd none
sought for by the iricmlsof either candidate ,
'ihero is nothing to confer nbout. Wo arc
making no light on Gresham , nnd so far as
wo know' his friends are making none on
Harrison. The business of the Indiana dele
gation is to curry out the instructions of the
republican state convention and do what we
can to secure the nomination of Harrison ,
The impiession that Indiana has two candi
dates is not a coricct ono. Gresham doubt
less has many friends among the republican
pai ty in Indiana , but tbo sentiment expressed
at the county and state conventions and the
instructions given arc for Hurrlson. Those
instructions Indiana will earn , ' out. "

its unlocked for sticngth ; thut Allison's
friends show n confidence which seems to
bo based on private information not
known to ttio general public all these
facts are admitted. It is also generally
assumed that the choice of the convention
will bo made on the floor of the convention
nnd not In the hotel corridors or rooms of the
delegations. It Is anybody's race nt this
moment , with the over threatening possibility
that a deadlock may cause n stampede to
Ulalno and veto his letters of declination.
Sherman nt present has the largest
and most enthusiastic body of
members. A score , of senate employes me
already on the ground posting up his pie
turcs and assui Int ; all comers of the certainty
of his election on the third or fourth ballot.
They hnvo been counting until within n few
da.v son four votes from Nebiaskn , but now
leave your state out of th i calculation which
gives the Ohio statesman HIX ) votes on the

fldcntly expect some Nebi nskn votes at the
