THE OlYMPIA SENATORIAL FIGHT.
The Squire's Mon Obtains Caucus Call
Disgraceful Squabble. .
Olympia, Jan. 20. There was great
joy at Senator Squire's headquarters to
day from the fact that a call for a caucus
had been agreed upon and made ready.
The next thing was to read the call for a
caucus in the lobby of the Hotel Olympia,
which was crowded almost to suffocation,
there being about 400 persons in it, very
few of whom knew that fifty-six republi
cans had signed the call. John H. Mc-
Graw, of Seattle, Senator Squire's mana
ger, wanted a member of the legislature
outside of King county to read it, but
none could be found, and Representative
S. Meany, of King, was selected. Sena
tor Squire's headquarters is at the head
of the main stairway which leads into
the lobby. Half way down the stairway
is a wide landing. Representative
Meany took his station on the landing,
hut as no trouble was expected no one
accompanied him to protect him. He
then called for order in the lobby. The
noisy talk ceased and 400 men turned
their faces toward him. . A hush fell over
the crowd when he announced that he
had a call for a republican caucus, which !
he proceeded to read. There was no
disturbance until he finished, when the
Calkins men groaned and hissed and the
Squire men cheered.
"This call," shouted Representative
Meany, as he swung his hands enthusi
astically in the air, "is signed by fifty-six
republican members of the legislature of
Groans and cheers and hurrahs for
both Squire and Calkins greeted this
announcement. Nelson Bennett, who
is Judge Calkins' manager, and ex-Code
Commissioner W. H. Doolittle, of
Tacoma, were standing in the front of the
crowd on the floor and shouted at the
tops of their voices.
"Give the names, Meany," shouted
ex-Sheiiff McCraw, who was on the
landing. Then, followed an exhibition
of rowdvism that is without parallel in
the history of Washington politics.
Representative Meany tried to read the
names, but his voice could not be heard
above the din raised by the Calkins men
on the floor. They hissed Squire and
cheered Calkins, and tried in every way
to drown Meany 'a voicer"An 'of a sud"-
den Nelson Bennett and Doolittle were
seen to break away from the crowd and
press their way to the landing, shouting
loudly for Calkins. Reaching the land
ing Bennett pushed his way to the front
and waving his hat in the air proposed
three cheers for- Calkins, which the
Calkins men in the lobby gave, and the
Squire men answered with three cheers
for their chief. By this time Doolittle,
who was behind, reached the landing,
and calling to Bennett, said: "Grab the
list and tear it." Bennett reached over
a reporter's shoulder to snatch the list
from Meany but the latter turned to the
right, and Doolittle was there to attack
him. The two pressed Meany to the
railing and struggled to throw him over
to the floor below, a distance of about
twelve feet. Colonel John C. Haines
and Moritz Koch, of Seattle, Representa
tive Ragsdale, Contractor Roberts and
C B. Dillingham, of Spokane Falls,
then rushed to Meany's assistance
Haines locked with Doolittle and threw
him aside, and Representative Ragsdale
pulled Nelson Bennett's whiskers until
he released his hold on Meany. Mr,
Dillingham jabbed his elbow into Ben
nett's stomach. By this time hundreds
of men were crowding towards the scene
of the conflict, and it looked as if noth
ing could possibly prevent a riot. By
an almost superhuman effort Colonel
Haines freed Meany from his assailants
and, the coast being clear, he fled up
stairs to Senator Squire's headquarters.
He was weak and tottering. His clothes
were disarranged, perspiration was run
ning irom every pore, ana when he
reached the room he fell on a bed ex
Senator VanDevanter, of King, and
two newspaper men followed, and fear
ing a fresh attack from the mad crowd
on the stairway, locked the door. Col
onel Haines came in shortly after and
was glad to find that the call for the
caucus had been saved. It was crum
bled but recognizable. Colonel Haines,
Representative Meany and Senator Van
Devanter essayed to go down the stair
way, but there were indications that the
crowd would renew the attack, so they
entered the lobby by a back stairway.
The excitement was still high. ' Senator
Thompson, of Walla Walla, and an attor
ney were both on the landing trying to
address the crowd, one in favor of Squire
and the other for Calkins. There was
such a roar . that nobody could hear a
word. " The conduct of Bennett and
Doolittle was condemned by everybody.
Sqnlre Receives an Unanimous Nomina
tion. The time for the caucus was now ap
proaching and many, expecting that the
fight would be renewed . there, started
for the statehouse. Speaker Shaw called
the meeting to order. ..Representative
Megler, of Wahkiakum, was elected
chairman, and Representative Hunsaker
6f Klickitat, secretary. The roll call re
vealed the presence of sixty-two republi
cans, as follows :
Senate O'Neill, Van Houten, Hvde,
Watt, Thompson of Walla Walla,
Preston, Cooper, Clough, Long, Knee
land, Hastings, Easterday, Van Devan
ter, Frink, Forrest, Dyer, Owings, Kin-

A number of members protested
against the caucus and withdrew. They
Senators Cooper, Easterday, Owing,
Parkinson, Long and Kneeland, and
Representatives Dysart, Frater, Garret
son, Coughran, Tyler, Taylor, Miller,
Gandy and Fraser.
All except Parkinson, Frater and
Gandy are pronounced Calkins men.
Parkinson, Frater and Gandy left because
a motion postponing the caucus until to
morrow morning was not agreed upon.
Senator Owings left after his motion to
adjourn had been voted down. The dis
cussion was full ot bitterness, senator
Kneeland charged that the call for the
caucus was secretly circulated bv the
Squire men, and was a violation of every
principle that brings deliberative bodies
together. Senator Dyer and Represent
atives Meany, De Steigner, Lawton and
Walker replied to the charges. They in
sisted that there was nothing unfair, and
said that the opposition did not want a
caucus and would not attend one to
morrow morning. At 10 o'clock, after
two hours' wrangle, another motion to
adjourn was voted down and Senator
Dyer placed Senator Squire in nomina
tion. No one else was named, and he
was the unanimous choice of the caucus.
There were forty-eight members present
at the time.

Washington, Jan. 21. In the house
when the reading of the journal was
concluded this morning Mills objected
to its approval and stated that he de
sired to debate the question. In a mo
ment McKinley was on his feet with a
demand for the previous question on ap
proval of the journal and he was recog
nized by the speaker.
There followed a scene of great excite
ment, almost rivalling that of yesterday.
Messrs. Bland, Rogers and Mills, were
the excoriated speakers and the speaker
in a calm manner stated that he admin
istering the rules as he understood them ,
and as sustained by the house and that
he would continue to administer them
so long as he retained the position to
which he was elected bv the house.
Another wave of excitement has just
passed over the house. The speaker,
Mills, and McKinley were the -incipal
agitators, the latter declaring with
.eniphasis that if neeessary the house
would stay in session till noon of the
fourth of March in order to pass the bill
which would give every citizen of this
land his right to a free ballot and fair
China Will Be Represented.
Chicago, Jan. 19. All doubt as to
China's action in regard to the fair has
been dispelled. Cha'-les Denby, United
States minister to Pekin, has announced
officially to the World's Columbian JEx
position officials that as a result of the
many interviews with the emperor the
Chinese goverment has decided to parti
cipate in the exposition. Promotor
General Handy has appointed Dr. Thos
Weston, of New York, as foreign ex
change editor, with headquarters at Chi
cago. He has a wide experience in the
class of work for which he is chosen.

Pine Ridge, Jan. 21. This morning
all of the troops with the exception
of the Frst infantry broke camp and
moved to the bank of Craven creek about
four miles south of the agency. The
redskins at last understand the move.
Not a few of them look upon it with ap
prehension and have accordingly doubled
