plannel to do. The chamberlain fears thst
some Pol U h fMjrtle might attempt to harm
the emperor. Racial feeling is described as
at fever heat and several Berlin Journals
take the view that It would be unwise for
the emperor to expose himself unneces
sarily. The Post, conservative, says it la

Bent Germans residing In Poland are glad
that the roilsa officials and nobility have
determined not to attend the festivities, as
thereby the chances of unpleasant incidents
rising are lessened.
Emperor Will Go.
It Is scarcely likely that Emperor Wil

awskt's appeal, because bis majesty never
permits himself to change his plans on sc
count of the tlmldl y of hi. adviser.. He
goes anywhers he think, duty call, him and, J
besides. It Is his purpose to declare the
government's Polish policy while ln Polish
territory and his giving up of personal su

precedented. The Polish question 1. regarded a. the

was In Washington today enroute to hla
home from Oyster Bay. Speaking of the
report that a combination waa being ef
fected among the flour millers to defeat .
David B. Henderson because of his opposi

clause bill, Mr. Hepburn said: "If all the
republican members were as certain of
coming back as Henderson, we would neve
a big majority ln the next house."
"Do you think that there Is anything
in the talk of Mr. Littlefield being a can
didate for speaker?"
"I cannot, of course, pretend to know
what Mr. Ittlcfleld's ambitions ars," wts
the reply, "but he seems to have an en
ergetic and Industrious press agent, who
is keeping him before the public. I do
believe, however, that I can predict that
the house will re-elect General Henderson
to tne speakership.
