Officer Hettem. on the East Awtorla
beat, made his maiden arrest Wednesday

Individual who had a slight Jiur on, nnd
proudly trotted him to the Hotel do

put up fi ball yesterday morning and
was released. He did not show up when
Judge Nelson said "Pluy bull!" and hi
V ilropiied gently Into the city's coffers.
The next casa was that of Charles
Krlckson, who was accused of being
found by Officer Slnnolt In a beastly
suite of Intoxication. Krlckson was very
pleasant In explaining; the time and man
ner in which he got soaked. It appears
about 7:10 Wednesdny nlcht. Officer Bin
nott, while passing ths Fishermen's sa
loon, saw a chunk of something come Hy
ing out of the door, alighting heavily
on the sidewalk. Something happened
to be Erlckson. Ho had come suddenly
to the conclusion thnt he was a United
States senator and acted accordingly. As
there were no pitchforks or Inkwells near,
and being in a saloon, be just mude him
self numerous, to nil of which the bar
tender objected. The 11. T.'s protesta
tions were In vain, and he was comiwlled
to throw Erlckson through the door.
Erlckson Jumped to his feet and ex
tracted a knife from the quiet seclualve
neas of his patuloons pocket He wus
only running a bluff, though, as he ex
plained In court yesterday. But blurting
don't go when you're caught at It. Offi
cer Slnnott, who was an eye witness to
Erlckson's ejectment, had a pair ot
sixes and a club flush up his sleeve, and
called him. After listening to the tes
timony, Judge Nelson fined Erlckson t5.
Then John Ucntllch and Martin Johan
sen were told to stand up. These are the
two parties who made so much nolxe In
the Hiillroad saloon Wednesday. Hent
llch made himself previous and kicked
up quite a disturbance. Johunsen, how
ever, was the main guy In the fracas.
He knocked several persons down in the
saloon nnd was finally .thrown out of the
house, lie was persistent nnd with his
bare nts battered In the windows of tho
saloon. Sheriff Hare expostulated with
him, for which he the sheriff-got punch

A . McKlnley resolution, when made,
was greeted with cheers that shook the
building. The platform favors the elec
tion of senators by popular vote, and the
resolution denouncing the attempt of se
cret political organisations to control
party affairs was loudly applauded.
The convention at 5:06 Instructed Its
delegates to vote for McKlnley. There
was almost no opposition, and the dele
gates enthusiastically leaped to' their
feet as the result was announced.
The following Is the platform as adopt
ed: Resolved, That we renew our allegiance
to the principles of the Republican party
and pledge ourselves to support its can
didates and platofrm, as the same shall
be determined by our national convention
at 81. Louis.
Resolved, That we demand the restora

labor, and of the doctrine of reciprocity,
the last great work of the immortal
Resolved,' That we favor the mainte
nance ot the present gold standard and
are opposed to the tree and unlimited
coinage of silver at the ratio of IS to 1,
We are, however, favorable to an inter
national agreement, looking to the gen
eral use of both metals as money, at a
fixed ratio, and commend the efforts In
that behalf ot tbs last Republican administration.-
Resolved,- That it Is the Sentiment ot
this convention that congress should en
act strict laws to prevent the Immigra
tion of paupers, criminals and other un
desirable classes from foreign countries
Into the United Stales. .
Resolved, That we have always given
protection to our shipbuilders. In late
years wc hnve neglected to protect our
shipowners. We believe the time has
come to return to the policy ot Wash
ington and Hamilton, which, by discrim
inating duties in favor of American bot
toms, secured SO per cent of our carrying
trade to American shipping, and which,
if restored, would again revive shipping
ami cause American freights to be paid
Resolved, That a plunk should be Incor

church and state, and wc recognize loy
alty, intelligence, and honesty as the
main requisites of good citizenship: and
we do donounce any attempt to create
a religious qualification for office as un
American, unjust and unconstitutional.
Resolved, That the Republicans ot
Washington, while recognizing the em
inent worth and fitness of each distin
guished statesman of their party whose
names have been mentioned as aspirants
for Ihe presidential nomination at St,
Lou I., hereby declare that the emphatic
sentiment of Washington Is In favor or
that wis. and able .talesman, that purs
and unsullied patriot, that true and loyal
American, that peerleas champion of pro

for the success of said William McKlnley

Washington. May Jt-Ulbsoa. of Mary- !

to the bill restricting Immigration aa
soon as the session opened today. He
urged that there was no reason to keep t
back the Immigrant from our shore so
long as there were mountains to tunnel,
rivers to bridge and virgin country to j
develop. Many of the states with scant I
population would be glad to welcome the
foreigner, either with education or U-

that the power behind this antl-lmml- j

The biU bad for its real purpose, the
senator said, hostility to the Catholic
church a purpose of envy, hatred and
malice. It was the offspring of a brood
ot mlaohlet-makers. .. . .
Gibson read the oath of the organisa
tion. This waa the organisation, nc said,
that was seeking to enter American pol
itics. There was no branch of honest
politics which the secret, oath-bound or
ganisation could serve. Clbson added:
"I do not believe ths American people
wilt submit to the dictation of any such
organisation as the A. P. A but that
they will promptly and effectively stamp
with the seal of their condemnation this
impudent and dangerous Interef -rence
with the Interests of the republic.''

of order under advisement and will de
