Lincoln, July 24. (Special.)
There is every indication that the e
publican convention tomorrow will be
one of the best attended since the
inauguration of the primary.
Delegates1 began arriving in the city
at noon today and all speak enthu
siastically of the chances for the
election of Hugies and the success
of the state ticket in this state.
Mack J. Agee, chairman of the Hall
county republican committee, with
Representative Scudder and two or
three other delegates ar ived in the
city early. Mr. Agee says that Hall
county will have a full delegation at
the convention with some extra ones
for good measure who will come down
just to let the people know that Hall
county will make a bid for the repub
lican convention two years from now
when the proper itme comes. "We
have a bis; hall which will seat '500
delegates on the floor and 1,000 more
on the stage," said he, "and we are
going to have a new hotel; so we will
be in tine shape.
Strong fo Hushes.
The Hall county men feel that it
would be a fine thing to send the
convention out in the tsate once in
a while and give republicans out in
the west end a chance to attend. They
say that Hall county will give Hughes
a big vo teand the state ticket a good
Another delegate who is enthusias
tic over the prospects for republican
success is Harvey Webster of Burt
"We are going to carry Burt county
for the republican ticket by 1,200 ma
jority," said Mr. Webster. "I never
saw such a feeling of unionism in
Burt county in my life," said he.
"Everybody who was ever a republi
can is back in the party and whoop
ing it up for Hughes and Fairbanks
and the whole republican ticket."
Another member ot the state com
mittee who says that republican suc
cess in Nebraska is sure, is, Charles
McLeod of Stanton. "Our country is
democratic," said he, "but Hughes
will carry it by a fair majority.
Predict G. O. P. Victory.
Senator W. H. Reynolds of Chad
ron, republican candidate for state
treasurer, is here as is also Senator
H, P. Sbumway. of Wakefield. . Both
are feeling good over the prospects
and predict a big republican majority.
Chairman C. C. McNish was on the
ground eafly and takes a optimistic
view of the future. Mr. McNish is
not saying very much about the chair
manship, but it is known that he
would take it and he appears to have
a great many friends who believe he
should be re-elected. fc.d Beach ot
Lincoln, W. G. Ure of Omaha, S. R.
McKelvie of Lincoln and Clyde Barn
ard of Table Rock, are among those
who are mentioned for the place.
The arly evening train brought in
large numbers of republicans, among
them Judge Sutton, W. P. Warner,
E. R. Gumey, who lias been selected
chairman of the convention; E. T.
Westerfield of Scott's Bluff, who
never thinks it's too far to go to any
state convention; E. M. Pollaril,
Harry Byrne, Dan Swanson and
It has been decided to call the
convention about 1:45, in order that
delegates on the noon train will be
able to get a bite to eat and get to
the opening. The convention will
then run through without a recess.

Irish Question is
At Acute Stage
London, July 24. An acute stage
has been reached in the Irish ques
tion. Unless the situation suddenly
changes doubt is expressed whether
the government will be able to intro
duce an amending bill this week as
had been oromised.
The nationalist members of Par
liament are holding another meeting
today and unless a satisfactory an
swer is received trom .Premier As
quith, John Redmond, leader of the
Irish nationalists, will be asked to
press him for a iurthcr statement re
garding the intentions of the govern
ment. The nationalists insist that
the bill shall conform to the terms
agreed upon in the settlement, and
they say they will have nothing to do
with the proposals to make the exclu
sion, of the province of Ulster perma
nent or to reduce the Irish represen
tation in the imperial Parliament
pending the final settlement.
In addition to the Irish subject, the
government will have many questions
to engage its attention during the
week. Critics of the cabinet will at
tempt to prolong the debate on the
bill for the appointment of commit
tees to investigate the campaigns in
the Dardenelles and Mesopotamia,
while the introduction ' by Premier
Asquith today of a new vote of credit
will open a general debate on the con

JTe-oonve" 1
Hastings, Neb., July 24. (Special
Telegram.) It must be a harmonious
meeting of democrats, according to
the party leaders who were among
i the early arrivals here today ofr the
state convention tomorrow. Even the
contest for the chairmanship of the
state cent al committee is being de
veloped into an amicable pre-conven-tion
agreement today.
Either A. D. Sprague of York or
Louis Langhorst of Elmwood will
probably step down from the chair
manssip to either secretary or mem
bership on the central' committee.
Mr. Sprague of Yo' k is said to have
refused to continue as secretary in
case he is defeated for the chairman
ship. Any effort to open the fight be
tween the Hitchcock and Bryan fac
tions, the leaders say, is pretty apt to
be squelched.
Big Guns Coming.
Senator Hitchcock will arrive to
night. Governor Morehead and party
have sent wo d that they will arrive
on an early train, tomorrow morning.
Keith Neville, candidate for governor,
was among the early arrivals in the
city this morning. Mayor C. W.
Bryan of Lincoln is expected tomor
row. W. J. Bryan will be unable to
attend, since his time is taken up

called to order by State Chairman
W. H. Thompson of Grand Island
promptly at noon.

appropriation bill, voting down re
trenchment proposals and approving
increases totaling more than $30,000,
000 when sections were reached car
rying provisions for ordnance and
equipment for the regular army and
national guard.
Debate on the ordnance sections
developed a predominating sentiment
that it would be unwise to limit ex
penditures for ammunition and guns
too closely, despite the lessening of
tension in the Mexican situation.
Decreases of $36,000,000 ordered
Saturday related to transDortation.

emergency estimates put into the bill

tion for national guard field artillery,
$8,000,000 to $14,000,000.
In the item for small arms ammuni
tion, the senate approved a reduction
from $5,000,000 to $2,500,000, but sev
eral senators said they would insist
on another vote on the section before
final pasage of the bill. The measure
may be passed tomorrow, although
several important items remain for
consideration, including the $13,281,
666 proposed for aviation, an increase
of $10,000,000 over the house appro

conspiracy with munitions makers and
others who profit by war. He defend

champions of preparedness in con

the admiistration of Mexican policy,
asserting that the national guard had
been called to the border under "false
pretenses" and that diplomatic cor
respondence had disclosed that there
never was any intention of sending
state troops into Mexico.
British Cabinet Is
Unable to Agree on
New Home Rule Bill
London, July 24. Confirming pub
licly the suspicion that the cabinet had
been unable to reach a decision in re
gard to the home rule amending bill,
Premier Asquith in the House of
Commons today announced that the
government would not introduce any
bill of tins kind with regard to . Inch
there was no substantial agreement
among all parties. This was taken in
the lobbies of parliament to mean
that home rule had been dropped for
the moment and th?t David Lloyd

have been the retention in the imper
ial parliament of nationalist repre
sentatives in undiminished numbers.
John Redmond, leader of the nation
alists, moved an adjournment of the
house to discuss the premier's reply
and a lively debate when the regular
business ot the house was concluded

Carranza Prepares New Laws for
Foreigners in Business in Mexico
New York, July 24. Radical
changes in the laws governing for
eigners doing business in Mexico are
about to be made by General Car
ranza in a series of decrees which
later will be included in a new con
stitution, according to recent arrivals
from Mexico City.
The new legislation, it is said, will
firovide that all foreign investors be
ore entering business in Mexico must
agree not to have recourse in any
case to any other law than that of
Mexico, and that they will not be en
titled ot any privileges not enjoyed
by Mexicans. It will also provide
that foreign capital already invested
in Mexico may enjoy the right to be
considered foreign and be entitled to
the protection of its own government,
until the expiration of the concession
or agreement that it may have en
tered into, provided it is not for a
very long period.
Another provision is designated to
fix a uniform period for all the long
or unlimited contracts, leases or con
cessions in which foreign capital is
interested and that at the end of this
period they will be considered subject
only to the authority of the Mexican
government, deprived of the right of
appeal for protection to their respec
tive governments.
These measures, it is understood,
are to be incorporated in the Mexican
constitution, when the constitutional
assembly meets in Queretaro in the
near future, and it is the belief of First
Chief Carranza and his advisers that
they will suffice to avoid the danger
of complications with European pow
ers and as a natural sequel will lift
from the United States the respon
sibility of defending the territorial in
tegrity of Mexico against the possi
bility of seizure of lands or proper
ties by any foreign nation in order to
pay the claims of their nationals.
