after that, speculation as to when the war

Mr. Chamberlain's appeal for women to go
out to South Africa, which our club mem

responded to freely.
There Is every possibility that tha first

the statement that the proposed chil list

received with general satisfaction.
It has been further allowed to leak out
that Instead of hampering the rojal grant
with conditions, as under the late Queen,
the King Is to hae a free hand In dispos

concession to the radical demands a3 ex

on to show that, after all, the King is the

DIPLOMATS MIX IN
LITTLE L0VEN AFFAIR,
Lord Pauncefote and Secretary
.Hay Trying to Help Young
Elopers to Happiness.
Washington, March 16. The great Foreign
Office of Great Britain has been put in
motion to aid an American in the peaceful
enjoyment of his honeymoon.
George Herskovltz. a prominent politician
of Toledo, loved and won a 15-year-old girl.
Her parents did everything they could to
keep the young people apart, but they
eloped to Canada, were duly married and
returned to enjoy their honeymoon.
The parents of the bride tried to have the
man indicted, but nothing could be done, as
the couple had been married In Canada.
This gave the parents an idea. They went
to Canada, affirmed their daughter was not
of legal age and asked that Herskovltz be
punished for perjury for swearing to the
Canadian authorities that she was. An In
dictment was followed by extradition pro
ceedings. Herskovltz then began to use his political
pull. Hanna, Colonel Dick and Congress
man Southard of Toledo appealed to Presi
dent McKInley to ntt recognize the applica
tion. Secretary HaT decided that the case
was not a proper one for diplomatic inter
ference. It was a legal and not a political
Colonel Dick went to see Lord Paunce
fote. Tho British Ambassador promised to
take the matter up and see If the extradi
tion proceedings could not be quashed.
ANOTHER NEBRASKA CAUCUS.
Hanna Urges Republicans to Make
a Choice for Senator.
Lincoln, jNeb., March 16. The Republican
senatorial caucus, under the rules prevailing
for a month past, was practically aban
doned at a meeting last night, and petition
for a new caucus circulated. The change In
programme Is largely the result of a tele
gram received from Chairman Hanna, In
answer to the one sent him.
Chairman Hanna's telegram is as follows:
"Washington, D. C March 15. Honorable
O. N. Gallogly, Lincoln, Neb.: Replying to
your telegram, signed In behalf of forty-five
members of theNebraska Legislature, will
say the suggestion which the National Com
mittee would strenuously urge is that all
Republicans attend caucus, and. either by
majority or two-thirds rule, make a choice
of candidates, voting for one at a time.
They add to this their earnest appeal for
harmony and loyalty to the party's interests.
(Signed) "M. A. HANNA."
It Is believed that by Monday night next
enough signers will have been secured to
one of the new calls to make another caucus
