It. L. Koestt r's decision to s'sek tho nom

Mr. Keestar tried conclusions with the

tho nomination In 1912, making his fight
on tho platform that ho was a "progres

Is ot the opinion that he will stand a

This move on the part ot Mr. Kecster
has started the talk again whether there
Is any prospect of the republicans of Ne
braska getting together at the next elec
tion. When Judge Epperson, chairman
of the progressive wing of tho republican
state committee, was In Lincoln a few
days ago, ho expressed the belief that
there would be a good chance of repub
licans pulling together next fall If "out
stdo Influence'1 would keep their hands
He did not specify what tho outside In
fluences were, but ln the courso of his
conversation, stated that it Theodora
Roosevelt nnd Governor Johnson persisted
In maintaining the bull moose organiza
tion there would not be as good a chance
for the republicans to forget their differ
ences. Ho thought thera was a good
prospect that the third party would put
candidates In the field at the primary but
thought their showing would be so weak
that they would cut little figure In tM
"1 have received a lot of letters from
different parts ot the state," said the
Judge, 'and all ot them show a ten
dency for getting together. They speak
especially of the feeling among republic
ans of both factions that the differences
ot the past should be forgotten and a
convention called to take steps toward
an united front In the next election
against tho opposition."
In talking ot thr matter today ex-Gov-er.nor
Atdrlch sold that he was ln favor
ot a -complete change In the representa
tion of the party in the nextytiatlonal
convention. The south has too strong a
hold In both conventions, according to
the governor, and there ought to bo a
more equal distribution of representation.
"Tho reins of government aro now ln
the hands of the south," said Governor
Aldrlch, "and It Is nil due to giving south
ern states representation both tn the na
tional conventions and In congress on a
less percentage of voters than we have
In the north. In many places In the
south congressman and delegates repre
sent one-third as many people as do our
representatives up here, and It ought to
be remedied someway."

was revived today that General Huerta
Intended to resign on tho convening of

It was based on the alleged declaration
of ti member of the new chamber of dep

erance of relations between the United
Ptates and 'Mexico Is regarded here as
Inevitable. Nono of the newspapers,
whether printed In English or Spanish,
published more than the briefest dis
patches today touching tho situation and
no Indication was given hi these ot the
Intention of Washington toward Mexico.
Whether the United States embassy is
to remain or bo Immediately withdrawn
appears to be a matter ot which Nelson
O'Shaughnessy, tho American chargo
d'affaires, himself, Is uncertain. Tho
staff of the embassy Is ready to leavo
at a moment's notice' and little surprise,
would be felt here, si though much alarm
would be caused, In case Mr, O'Shaugh

Thcro was considerable gossip In polit

General Aurellano Dlanquet, the minis

which may cause him to leave his post.

ot revlslnc the credentials ot Its mem

means to bring about alteration ot tho
present plans, th first regular meeting
of that house will occur on Thursday.
The exodus of foreigners, especially
Americans, continued today. The trains
to Vera Cruz wero Jammed. It was as
serted at tho American embassy that no
now Instructions had been received.
Many American cltlsens have reached

any of them will leave their posts even In

there was no reason for anxiety. "A plan
