is general that the refusal of the United

air. Addicks arrived .here from Wilming
ton -about 1 o'clock, going to tho Capitol.
He was ushered Into tbe parlor of the
State House, Trtiere all of the a Republi
can members of the Legislature were as
sembled to "meet him. together with Sec
retary of State Stanley and Insurance
Commissioner Marshall. The Assembly
men received Mr. Addicks with cheers.
nnd he appeared deeply moved by the
heartiness of tho greeting. Immediately
after Mr. Addicks arrived. Governor John
Ilunn. who Is called the peacemaker in
Delaware politics, entered the parlor.
After the doors had closed those outside
heard frequent bursts of applause and
tho rumor became general about the
Capitol that Mr. Addicks was about to
withdraw from the most remarkable poli
tical contest In the history of this coun
try, a contest which has deadlocked three
sessions of the Legislature and split the
Republican psrty into factions. This
rumor was confirmed soon after 2 o'clock.
when the caucus adjourned.
Address of Addicks.
Mr. Addicks' address to the caucus was
To the Republican Members of the
General Assembly: My advent In Dela
ware politics more than 11 years ago was
preceded by Republican defeat and dis
aster daUng practically from the birth of
the party Itself. Whatever accidental ad-
vantage was held In those long years was
due alone to some outbreak of factionalism
in the ranks of our opponents and not
to any Inherent strength or confidence on
the part of the Republicans themselves.
Since 1S32 this state has been uniformly
Republican. Owing, however, to the bit
terness and strife which has arisen with
in our own ranks, we have failed In se
curing all those advantages that Justly
have belonged to a party with such a con
tinuous and brilliant record of overwhelm
The cause assigned for this condition
of strife has been universally proclaimed
to be my candidacy to the Senate of the
United States. It has been stated con
tlnuously everywhere that, with this ob
stacle to party unity removed, conflicting
'elements will coalesce and the party.

of "lawful procedure In self-government
and undertake successfully those weighty
responsibilities which the government of
this state Imposes upon it. Influenced
by this" consideration and the obligations
which the Republicans of this state owe
to tbe National organlzaUon and to the
ftdmlnlstraUon at Washington, urging no
plea for" myself, recalling no claims for.
any 'part I myself may have borne for
years In bringing victory1 out of a past
replete with defeat, influenced by the
Strom; desire to see Delaware become a
strong Republican state and therefore a
prosperous, progressive commonwealth,
trustlnjr confidently to the rare loyalty of
friends. Indifferent to the clamor of ene
mies, I have determined to remove the
only reason assigned for tbe continuance
of party disunion.
Condition In Attached.
"I herewith declare publicly my with
drawal as a. candidate before this Legis
lature for the office of Senator from this
state in the Senate of the United States,
"The- withdrawal of my candidacy Is"
conditioned upon trie holding of a Repub
lican caucus to be participated in by all
of the Republican members of the General
Assembly nnd the .selection of two candi
dates for the Senate of the United States
by majority rule In the sad caucus."
The notice of the Joint caucus was as
Following upon tho withdrawal of Mr.
Addicks for the office of Senator of the
United .States, you are hereby asked to
participate In a Republican caucus to be
held at S o'clock P. M. February 5, In the
hall of the House of Representatives, for
the selection of two candidates for the
office of Senator In the Senate of the
United States. If this date should be In
convenient, we designate 10 o'clock A. M.
February 6. 1903, for holding the caucus."
Even Now Trouble la Not Over.
The caucus requested by the Union Re
publicans did not take place tonight. A
majority of the members of the Legisla
ture left for their homes without Inform
ing Uie Addicks adherents as to whether
they would participate In a caucus to
morrow. A number of the regular leaders met In
Wilmington tonight and much opposition
to tho proposed coalition was expressed.
The claim .was made that Addicks' with
drawal as a candidate for United States
Senator was for the purpose of electing
two of his supporters. It Is understood
that the regulars, or a number of them,
will refuse to enter the caucus because of
Tho Democratic caucus met at the Cap
itol Hotel to talk over the situation under
the new developments, and several propo
sitions were submitted to act quickly and
defeat the Addicks move. The meeting
took no definite action, tho members be
ing disposed to await tomorrow morning's
The withdrawal of Addicks leaves the
Senatorial muddle In a peculiar situation.
If the regular Republicans do not accept
the proposition of the 21 Union Repub
licans for a general Republican caucus,
then Addicks hgaln becomes a candidate.
If they do accept It, It Is believed they
will have no chance to namo a Senator
from their own faction, for the reason
that the Addicks Republicans will force
the unit rule, claiming the right of tho
majority to select the caucus nominees.
Meantime the Democrats, eager to defeat
Addicks. may Induce the regulars to ac
cept the proposition to support two men
selected by the regulars.

The House committee on Interstate

the Elktns bill. If It doesnot, then there
will be pressure to consider the Little

seen. It can be delayed with a view of
having the House pass the Elklns bill,
and that Is possibly- the course that will
be taken. Men like Aldr'lch. Elktns, Hanna

frankly at the beginning of the session
that no radical legislation could be
passed, and the manner In which the El

by the knowledge that anything more se

OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington. Feb. 5. There is an unmistakable
feeling In the East, and particularly In
Washington, antagonistic to Germany, a
feeling that has been somewhat Intensi
fied by the attitude of Germany in the
Venezuela Incident. Nowhere is this sen
timent so strong as at the War and Navy
departments, where army and naval of
ficers are free to declare In private con
versation that, the next war of the United
States will be with Germany. On this
point they are agreed. In these two de
partments there has been much 111-feellng
towards Germany as a" direct outgrowth
of the action of. the German admlrtl at
Manila andr the subsequent attitude of
Von Waldersee In China.
Without exception, all members of the
administration, when consulted, deny tho
existence of any antagonism towards
Germany, and they only discredit reports
to that effect. Yet lt Is known that
among themselves and In private discus
sions more than one member of the Cab-
lnet has not only admitted the prevalence '
of this sentiment, but given Indication
that he himself shares lt to some degree..
In New York the anti-German senti
ment grows largely out of unsatisfactory
trade relations with that country, the
port of. New York getting the bulk of
German trade. In Congressional circles
here there Is a feeling of distrust of Ger
many In .the Venezuela negotiations.
The.re Is a general suspicion that Emperor
William is looking for something more
than a mere presentment of the German
claims, and to some extent this distrust
has spread in other directions.
Summed up, there Is undeniably a feel
ing towards Germany that Is not enter
tained towards any other foreign power,
a feeling that Is very generally experi
enced but seldom openly acknowledged.
In some quarters It Is believed Germany
at this time seeks only to see hew far the
United States will go In Insisting upon
observance of the Monroe Doctrine. Else
where lt Is suspected that Germany Is de
sirous of obtaining a coaling station In
Venezuela In defiance of the Monroe Doc
trine. It Is felt that there Is something ,
material behind the demand for a pay
ment of German claims.
