CHICAGO , Juno 17. [ Special TelCRrnm to
TIIK UPK. ] Tlio hcadcmartcrs of the Ne
braska delegation nt the Grand Pacific offers
n striking contrast to the delegation head
quarters of the same state at the Palmer
house four and eight jcurs ago. At these
preceding national gatherings the rank and
file of the party commingled with the dele
gations irrespective of faction or even presi
dential preference. To-day the headquarters
of thejlclegatlon are llko a sectional view
of the Lincoln oil rooms , with Walt Seeley
r as the quartermaster and the railroad at-
? torncya looking after the commissary. The
rendezvous of the delegation presents the
cheerfully familiar appearance of room 14 nt
the Capital hotel during the last session of
the legislature. Omaha has furnished her
full quota to this contingent.N Herb Lcavltt
nnd Dave Mercer ere making thcmsclvrs
very numerous , while Prank Walter holds
himself in rcscivo for the more delicate
work of the canvass. The only oil room
greaser that is foifnd missing up to this
houi is Kiir Trumpet Crawford , whoso elo
quence had such a visible effect on the
granger element during the last legislative
session , Outside of the Omaha contingent ,
Is In full possession of thu quarters selected
by Church Howe and Walt Sceloy. Paul
Vandervoort , that blood-thirsty veteran whenever
never came within a thousand miles of a
battle , has come nil the way fiom Washing
ton to join the railroaders in knifing
Greshnui , with whom ho has nn unsettled
account to balance , since Grcslnun dismissed
Paul from the postal service for negligence
nnd liicfllcicncy. Church Howe , Thuiston
nnd Pat Egun arc swapping the delegation to
anybody nnd everybody , exchanging prom
ises of support of picsidcntial candidates for
the votes or committcemcn on behalf of
Thuiston's ' candidacy for tcmpotaiy chair
man. This seems to bo the solo aim nnd ob
ject of the Nebraska delegation at the Chicago
cage convention. Every other Intuiestund
every other issue has been suuk in the ono
Buprume effort to
into national prominence. A gieat stiuss is
laid upon the jug handle which attaches to
the title of Judge to Thurston's 11.11110. The
impression is spread mound that ho secured
this title on the supreme bench of Ncbiaska ,
when in fact Tliurston never expounded the
law excepting as a justice of the peace
among the slums of the 'Ihiul waid of
Omaha. The lamented General Stiickland
used to boast that in a campaign ho could
tin n a corner about ns fast as the next man ;
but thegcncial was only a novice in tho-
business compared to the oily tougued politi
cal Sampson fiom Omaha Two weeks ago
ho told u Chicacro Herald ic-poiter that Ins
heaitwas broken when Ululno withdiuw ,
but when the Ciiliforniiins came jcbtciday
witli their 151aiiio banncis and a competing
candidate for tuinpoiary chilli man , Thuis-
IOII'H heart didn't . \cain nny moio for Hlaiuo

in tills cltj for Grant while the convention
wns in session as ngainst the plumed fa\onto
of Nebraska icpublicana. To the novice in
politics the gyrations of Chuich Howe nnd
Thurslon nmst be rather bewildeiing.
When Justice Miller was in Omaha tundajs
ago holding ciieuit , couit , Tlim-Hton declared
that after Hlaino his Hi st choice wns Judge
Miller , and next Miller ho would favor De-
pew. The next thing wo heaid of was a
visit to Wisconsin , and Thurston's dli > co\ery
of Jerry Husk ns his next choice after
Hlaine. Tills was u bait to Wisconsin. It
was followed by n , vuntldcntml compact be
tween Thuiston. Chuich Howe und Claik-
son , by which Tliurston nnd the delegation
were to give suppoit to Allison In rctuin
for Clarkson's vote in the national committee
for Thui ston On the heels of this little ar
rangement , Patiick Ugun , whoso highest

Mipport of Michigan. Thu delegates who
icprcsent the provinces of tin1 Union Pacific
west of the Missouri river have been annexed
Without much double , and Church Howe ,
who is behind nobody us n trader , has made
swaps light and loft for Thuiston from tick
ets to delegates. I feel safe In'asserting that
the number or votes promised from Nebraska
tovaiious candidates would bo enough to
nominate any ono of them on the first ballot.
Wlien Itcoines to delivoilng the delegation
theio will bo n good deal of lull bwearitnr
at thu honest granger state of NubiasUa ,
which will bo lopiusonted on the floor
this time by men who have nuver
turned u spade except in a game of pokor.
Whether Tliurston will finally nmko It de
pends very much upon his ability to bamboozle
boozlo the committee and the suppoitcrs of
the various boonib for twenty-four hours
longer. Nubinsku i oprc.senUuivcs who have
some icspecl left and take prhlo in the po
sition which the state has occupied on na
tional issues , have icason to feel humllatcd
ut this unseemly scumble for honors for an
unprincipled politician at the expense of the
good namu of a. gi cat state. U.K.

Dakota Will Care for Its Frlrnda.
CHICAGO , June 17. A new element In the
presidential contest was inndo apparent to
night when the Dakota men and Washington
territory contingent , representing twelve
votes , openly declared that they will take
care of their friend ! ! . Sherman's friends
were exultant. Dakota's cause had been

Sherman man. Allison's friends also put in
a claim on Dakota's good will in return for
the services of J. S. Clarkson , who had also
s'oott by Dakota in the national committee.
The change to Dakota men night by
John C. Mew of Indiana and Lawson of Now
York was interprete < l as thicatcnlng to
mean that Harrison , pcrhnps.hnd a mortgage
on fresh support from Dakota , and that the
ambition of Warner Miller of Now York to
bo chairman of the convention would re
ceive help from the same source. J. M.
Bailey of Dakota , who was spokesman for
the territory before the national committee ,
said to an Associated press reporter this
evening that the delegation had not settled

Cable Special lo Tun BEE. ] If straws
show which way the wind blows , then two
things Unit Kotscr William II. did on the
very Instant of his father's death causes gen-
crnl comment nnd arouses the ginvcst ap
prehension for the future. Knlscr Frederick
wns dead at t\\elvo minutes past 1 Friday
morning. The then Crown Prince William ,
together with the other members of the Im
perial family , was nt the emperor's death
bed. At the very moment of death
the crown prlnco walked out
of the chamber und gave orders
to his aide-de-camp , Major Baron von Notz-
incr , to have the palace surrounded by fresh
cordons of troops and sent another oftlccr to
order the regiment of hussars of the guard
to patrol the grounds and to let no
one in nor to let no ono go out. The hussars
arrived at a smart trot nnd illd their duty ad
mirably. Even Sir Morcll Mucken/Io was
for half nn hpur held a prisoner. Even the
passes given by Prince Uadolin ,
hof-maisclmll , ana by Count Zeckcndorff , the
emperor's chambcrlin , were annulled.
Within two minutes after ICniscr Fiedcrlck's
death a friend of.mlnc , provided with ono of
the hof-marschalf's p.isscs , who was In th o
palace nt the time of the emperor's death ,
was unable to got out , and was kept a
prisoner in the guaid house from 11:30 : to 5
o'clock in the afternoon. All Potsdam
patrolled by troops , exactly as If in war time
in the presence of an enemy. This n'gid and
uncalled for milit.irj mcnsuio was the very
llrst act of thp new cmpeior.
The second act was to order the Impci ial
puiplo standaid to be hoisted on his own
palace , the Marmor palace at Potsdam.
The young cmpcior's imperial standard
hoisted within ilyo minutes after his fathci's
death , so not much time was lost in assei tIng -
Ing his imperial authority.
These are the two Hi st acts of the young
cmpeior. No one dares say much about it
in IScilin , but they cause general uneasi
ness and arc rcgaidcd as emblematic
of what is to come bye nnd bye.
In fact , an Influential member of the icich-
stag , not a socialist but a stalwart national
ist , said to me : "I see from these two acts
thatthcio is danger ahead for GUI many.
O'ur gieat Kaiser William and our good
Kaiser Frederick both died peacefully in bed ,
but our joung and energetic Kaiser William
II. will , as you Ameiicans say , 'die with his
boots on. ' I don't think theio is much danger
of war , but rather of his provoking with his
in bitrary military measuies a statoof feel
ing throughout Germany that will arouse
socialistic attempts and lead to intei nal sti ife
and discoid. I think the immediate effect of
Kaiser William's icign will bo to incie.ise
German muuigiatiou to Ameiica about bO
per cent. "
The above language expresses to-day the
feeling of the gieat masses of the Germ in
coplc. The new cmpeior mny not prove to
ba such a hotspur after all , but such is the
opinion .jlicady foimea of him. Ho is im-
potous and dashing , but will the great
masses of the Goimiin paople submit to pure
military rule and will the other German
kings and grand dukes , the king of Saxony ,
tin1 regent of Uavan , the king of Win tern-
burg , the grand duke of Meck
lenburg , the grand duke of
Saxe Coburg , submit to the absolute sceptio
of the joung cmpeior , who by a gesture of
his hand hus thu sole power of declaring
war , with the same implicit obedience with
which they obeyed thu venerable kaiser
William II. Such mo the questions that
cseiy thinking , man in Gcinuiny is now
asking himself , for with the death of
kaiser Fiedciick was extinguished all
immediate hope of iifieo billet und frco
1'nfis Jtuloii ; the Itlcr of
Departed Frederick.
