Trend Toward Hughe i Definite.
.All pre-convention reports from Chicago in
dicate the strong turn of the current toward
Justice Hughes as the nominee of the republicans
for president. Of course, no nomination is ever
certain until it has been confirmed by the final roll
call, but in this instance the outward signs are all
favor of the selection of the New York man.
As each state group has reached Chicago, the
conviction has deepened that none of the other
candidates mentioned has sufficient strength to
pproach success. While each of the "favorite
ons" will receive the support of his pledged del
egates until such time as the "break" comes, the
fact that Hughes is the second choice for the great
majority of all the delegates who w ill not vote for
im first, makes it almost sure that he will be
nominated very early in the convention. The en
tire absence of contention among the delegates,
the general desire to show a united front to the
country, and to put the republican party bark
into line as a progressive and militant organiza
tion, mark the ante-convention proceedings, and
indicate the outcome as plainly as can be, In no
convention of recent years has the prospect for
republican success been brighter.
New Law for Neutrality.
Attorney General Gregory has approached con
gress with a draft for some new law to safeguard
the position of the United State as neutral, and
thus relieve the government from embarrassment
that has arisen during recent times. It is but nat-
ral that partisans of belligerent nations, or fae-
tionalists seeking to overturn or control the gov
ernment of a friendly nation, should take advan
tage of any opportunity to further the cause they
have espoused. The United States, by reason of
the laxity of its laws, ha been a splendid basi
for operations for these persons, who, for patriotic
or other motives, have not hesitated to do.thing
that tend to involve this country in their own
quarrels. Many revolutions have been hatched
nd'some have been financed from this side. It
has openly been charged that great moneyed In
terest of the United State hve taken one ide
or the other in the Mexican disturbances, hoping
to receive recognition that will later be profitable.
It i also known that agent of warring European
powers have operated in the United States, seek
ing to aid in the cause to which their home gov
ernment are devoted.
All of these acts are violations of the neutral
ity of the United States, but many of them are
beyond the reach of the law, and most of them
can only be prosecuted under the general con
spiracy law. The statute proposed by the at
torney general specifically define and make crim
inal great many things now practically immune,
but all of which are unneutral in their nature. The
power of the president are also extended so that
he can interfere more effectively in cases where
conspirator are abusing American hospitality by
taking part in disturbances in other countries.
These law will not curtail the legitimate busi
ness of the land, the right to openly deal with
belligerent, nor with any of the liberty of the
citizens, but they will reach many act that are
positively criminal, but are at present untouched
by existing statutes.
Presidential Preference Instruction!.
The State Journal earnestly discusses the Ne
braska presidential primary law, especially as to
its provision for the expression of popular pref
erence as to candidates and as to the length of
time the instruction are binding on the dele
gates. In surmising a number of possible contin
gencies, the Journal is able to present and demol
ish several propositions, none of which are espe
cially germane to the point. The Nebraska law
is not perfect, and does not give the definite in
struction to delegates that they are to be bound
eternally by the preference of the voters. If the
logic of the argument used by the Journal in in
sisting that Nebraska delegates continue to vote
for Cummins to the end were to be applied to all
delegations, it would result in an interminable sit
ting of the convention. A time must come some
where during the proceedings when delegate may
be released from instructions, in order that they
may come into line with the choice presaged by
a vote of the majority of the party as represented
there, and so preserve the harmony that is needed
for final success at the polls. Such action will
not have the effect of destroying any of the pur
pose of Ihe presidential preference expression by
the voters, but should operate to give it vitality.
No candidate has a right to claim support to the
establishment of a rigid deadlock, nor has a dele
gate a right to ignore his instructions, but the
right to switch votes at an appropriate time must
also be rriognued. In the end the party will be
liayul to the nominee, and that is the main thing.
Solidifying Their Harmony.
Nebraska democrats are surrly harmonious', so
much so that it is still necessary for them to travel
to St. Louis on separate trains, in order that the
factions do not get mixed up and forget which is
which, The conclave at Lincoln lt week, that
was lo determine who's who and what's what in
the matter of leadership didn't get very far on
tlir job. The delegation to St. Louis still stand
eight to eight, and neiiher the senator imr lie

in lit the other. Of course, this promises much
for (he lutute of the parly in the state. A dispo

THE BEE: OMAHA. TUESDAY.
Great Bear's Mighty
Dipper By Itarratt P. aorrlae.
"How mu;h watar would a Hipptr hold If built of tht
aama dimtnainna aa tha eonaullatiim known aa tht
Crtat Dippar," which wa ate nightly in tht northern
fpHAT is what I call a delightful question, in
stinct with imagination, yet not losing touch
with the realm of fact. In order to answer it we
must first make some estimates which cannot be
taken as accurate, although well within the limits
of probability, and understated rather than over
stated. The four stars forming the figure of the
Great Dinner" are Aloha. Beta, Gamma and
DeltatUrsae Majoris, their common designation.
Ursae Maioris. beinsr cast in the form of the
aristocratic genitive of "Ursa Major."
To perform the calculation required we must
first know the distance of these stars from the
earth. This has not yet been definitely ascer
tained, but as they are all four moving with ap
proximately the same velocity through apace, it
is a probable assumption that their respective dis
tances are about equal, and we shall be clearly on
the safe side of error if we call their common
parallax one-fifth of a second of arc.
This corresponds to a distance of 95,000,000,.
000,000 miles, in round numbers. The establish
ment of this distance gives us the needed lever
age for working our problem, and the rest will
be as easy as "the rule of three."
The figure (ormed by the four star represents
a side view of the howl of a dipper, in t lie form
of a trapezoid, the upper line of which is about
ten degrees in length, the lower line about eight
drgrres, while the height of the figure is five de
grees. The upper and lower lines are not pre
cisely parallel, but no serious error will be in
troduced if, for simplicity' sake, we assume them
to be so.
Ihe first step, now, is the transformation of
these angular measures into miles, using the dis
tance from the earth as a basis for the calcula
tion. Take the upper line of the figure, ten de
grees in length. We know that the apparent, or
angular, diameter of any object varies directly
as its actual, or linear, diameter, and inversely
as its distance.
Thus, if a line one foot long be placed ao that
its ends are at a distance of one foot from the
eye, its apparent length will be 57.3 degrees. If
removed to twice the distance the apparent length
will be halved, and so on.
Conversely, if the apparent length of any line
is one degree we know that its distance is 57.3
times its actual or linear, length. If the apparent
length is ten degrees, the distance is 5.73 times
its actual length.
Now the stars marking the upper line of the
celestial dipper are ten degrees apart, and since
their distance from us is vS, 000,0 W,000,000 miles,
it' follows that the real distance between them is
95,OO0,OO0,0OO,or1 divided by 5.73. This gives, for
the length of the upper edge, of the clipper 16,
580.000,000,000 miles very nearly.
The lower cdKe, or bottom line, of the dipper
is eight-tenths of this or 1 3,264,000,000,000 miles.
The height is one-half of the upper line, or
8,290,000,000,000 miles. Adding together the upper
and lower lines, and multiplying their mm by
half the height, or 4,145,OO0.(VX),00O, we get for
the area of the entire trapezoid whose corners
are marked by the four stars, 123,701 ,000,000,000,
000,000,000,000 square miles, throwing away the
least significant figures.
. But we are not yet done, for it is required
lo find the cubic volume of a dipper whose pro
file covers the enormous space just mentioned.
For this purpose wc must make an estimate of
the width of the dipper' bottom, assuming that
it sides are straight and vertical.
If they construct celestial dippers on the plan
of a terrestrial aroop, we may assume the width
to be about two-thirds the length or say 11,000,
000,000,000 miles. We then multiply the area of
the aide by the width of the bottom for who
would refuse so slight an arithmetical labor to
oblige a lady who love the romance of astron
omy?), and obtain for a final result the stupen
dous amount of one duodecillion, three hundred
and sixty undccillions of cubic miles)
Perhaps you would like to see that in figures,
so here it is: 1,360,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,-
000,000,000,000. I have cast aside as of no conse
quence more than seven hundred decillions, tor
it is an intellectual intoxication to come into pos
session, by one's own arithmetical prowess, of
an actual duodecillion, and he whose patience has
achieved it understands the contempt of audden
weath for such trifles a thousand dollar bills.
Now that we have got the capacity of the
Great Bear's mighty dipper, let us compare it with
some more comprehensible things. This earth
of ours contains about 2o8,0O0,00U,000 cubic miles.
So, it would take about five octillions of earths,
packed and crushed into a mass, to fill that super-capacious
The volume of the sun is about 348,000,000,000,
000,000 cubic miles. Then nearly four sextil
lions of suns, smashed like strawberries in a gro
cer's basket, would be required to brim the dip
per with solor nectarl
Hut let not the Great Bear boast too reck
lessly of his big dipper. Huge as it is, after all,
it fills but a speck of space in the universe. It is
near enough to us to make a great showing in the
sky, and paralyze our minds with amazement
when we apply out petty measurements to it, but
it could dip hut a spoonful from the Milky Way;
it would be lo.t in the gorgeous blazonry of the
Great Magellanic Cloud, and would drop, like a
tin cup down a well, through the tremendous
opening of the awful Coal Sailc that yawns he
side the constellation of the Southern Cross, and
seems to have no bottom in the rayless blackness
of the infinity beyond I

Omaha, June 8. To the Kditor of The
Bee: The national democratic convention
la about to aiaemhle in tit. Louia. Three
timet before, in 1S76. 1SSS and In 1!M, St.
I.ouia haa entertained the party of JeflVrnon
and Jackson. It ia a perhapa ominoua fact
that on each of thent oeraainna tha candi
date choaen haa met defeat. Another eur
loua fact ia that two of the St. Louia nom
lneea received a largtr popular vote than
their tucreaaful republican rivala. In 1S7S
Mr. Tllden'a majority over llayta wa Z60,
