Portland RepresentativeN)f King Christian of Denmark
Protests Strongly Against Arrest of Aid Society Hc
' nickers for Giving Beer Away on Sabbath.
Tt was one of the most outrageous
and highhanded proceedlnge I ever heard
of. I am glad. I waa not there or I
would have punched Detective Kay in
the nose."-. '::.:.A " ' '
This is the manner in which William
KIsen. represenUUve of Hla Majaty
Clng ChrlsUansof Denmark, discussed
the action of Detectives Kay and Klen
lln in arresting two members of the
Danish Aid society of Portland for giv
ing liquor .away at the picnic of the or
ganisation at Roshe's park, Fulton, yes-
r. Pateraon and T. Dahlsren were the
two plcnlokers to fall into the hands of
ths nolioe and from all indications the
mumcpal court proceedings give promise
of becoming most . interesting because
of the active part being - taken , in -the
case by Consul General Elsen.
Deteotirea ISarred Testlritles.
In accordance with their ususal cus
tom of haying an annual outing, the
Danish Aid society, composed of the
most prominent Danish residents of the
community, repaired to Rohse'a park
yesterday morning, intending to thor
oughly enjoy themselves. Nothing ,oc-
o'clock, when Kay and - Kienlln put In
an appearance and carted Messrs Peter
son and Dahlgren off to Jail for vio
lating the state law prohibiting the giv
ing away of intoxicants on the Sabbath.
The, arrest created intense excitement
among the $00 Danes in attendance at
the picnic - and. the ' storm is rapidly
growing la intensity. The two men tak
en into custody were released on deposit
of $25 cash ball apiece and the case will
be heard by Judge Cameron tomorrow
.... i went Beyond Authority.
"A11 of those at the-picnic brought
lunch baskets along and some refresh
ments," said . Peterson tnls morning.
"My partner and myself had a bottle
Of whisker and several bottles of beer,
which we drank with our lunch. These
officers came . to where we were and
after smelling the glasses on the table
unwarrantedly ' overhauled our lunch
baskets. . Finding the bottle of whiskey
and beer they ' seised -them as evidence
and made the arrests. : I think that
their action was not Justified."
Consul-General Ei sen say a that the
Danish Aid society of which he Is a
member Is one of the most powerful
beneficiary Organisations In the United
States. "The local branch was or
ganised in 1884, and done a great deal
of relief work. The members are among
the most respectable cltlsens In the city,
and I Intend to do what I can to put
this man Kay where he belongs," Is the
way the consul-general declares his in
tentions, v- . v -'
Why, these people were (out In the
grounds drinking all kinds of liquor,"
Detective Tom Kay said .this morning.
"-Little children and .women were at the
tables, and there appeared to be no re
gard for the law. ' If liquor can -be given
awar promiscuously' at picnics,' there Is
absolutely no use to enforce the Sunday
law. I understand that Rohse, - the
owner of the park, told them that they
could not have any liquor at the picnic,
and hla special policeman ordered the
society members to stop drinking.',-

That a general strike " will occW
among telegraph operatora In, every part
of the country ig the belief of J. O.
Blake Of San Francisco, , assistant gen
eral superintendent of the Postal Tele
graph "company on the Paclflo coast,
who is at the Oregon hoteL and ex
pressed an opinion this morning that
he regarded President 8. J. Small s tele
gram to Commissioner Nelll equivalent .
;j'-J Hot Kera oa sTtrlke. " - .
Mr; Blake la In Portland to meet J.
A. Forehand of Seattle, district super,
lntendent of the company. Mr. Blake
denies that his visit has any connection,
with the strike, situation and said that
the men had no reason for striking at
this time. While Mr, Blake was being
Interviewed a note was handed him an
nounclngj that the Postal men had gone
out at Denver and Los -Angeles. Mr.
Blake's only remark was, "Now, What
cense Is there in that. Those men have
absolutely no grievance against the com
pany nd no reason for etrlklntr"
When asked whether the company had
made preparations to replace the men
should they go on strike, Mr. Blake said
no. Ha also said that he did not know
how long it would take to replace the
strikers In event, of a strike, but ex
pressed the belief, that the company
could secure men r to , f 111 the empty .
places. 'i--v s-Y,. .,. .:;.,Y

From one remark " that Mr. ' Blake
dropped it has - been inferred that Uie
company has prepared for a long slcxe
in - case of strike and will . tight tne
men tq the last ditch. He remarked on
the fact that many of the men were not
in a position financially to withstand a
long strike. It has also been Inferred
that-the company expttots to recruit mu
to replace the strikers from the sti lit
ers own ranks.
"President Small'a telegram to Com
missioner Nelll,' said Mr. Blk,
"amounts to nothing but a dotdarstioa
of a strike for tomorrow. He says the
present strike is illegal but because of
the great provocation and resentment
against Western 'Union officials an !
because of bivS faith universally that
general strike be authorised tomorrow
