Judge Northup spoke of the criticism

the recent convention of Portland.
Possibly, ho suld, the gentleman who
hod criticised th signer ot the petition
knew the person to whom objection
wa raised better than did th speaker;
but, It all that wa stated wer true,
he would be the last person In the world
to turn them aside when seeking repent
ance. W iry Magdolene came to the 8a-

people against whom the crltlclMm hu

Enthusiastic Republican Push Him for
th United Slate Senat.
Seattle. May 26. A meeting of prom
inent Republican wa held thl evening
for th purpose of organising a club for
political work during the campaign and
particularly to advance lha candidacy
of John H. McGraw, now governor of
Ihe Stat-', for the seat In the senate re
cently hsld by Walton C. Squire.
It w-aa one of tne most enthuslaatio
political gatherings ever held In Ihe stale.
The governor wa sent for and on his
arrival was received with rheers which
continued for some minutes. He spoke
briefly, saying that while not a candi
date for th position, he believed that it
should go to this county aa the largest,
richest and most populous of Ihe state.
nd If Ihe Republicans of the county
thought him the strongest candidate be
would make the fight. Thl declaration
wa received with tumultuous applause.
The club roll was headed by Andrew P.
Burleigh, receiver of the Northern Pa
cific Railroad. The list Is practically a
complete roster of th leading; active Re
publicans of this cliy. There had been
some doubt as to whether Governor Mc
Graw would allow hi name to be con
sidered in connection with the senator
ship, but th meeting thl evening; mar
b regarded as a formal launching of his

leaders of both faction freely admit to

over tb money plank ta the platform.
As yet scarcely a word has beea said
about prohibition. Th money question
has been the all absorbing topic of dis
cussion. The bitterness of feeling In
crease hourly and when the convention
meets It promises to be a little battle
of extermination. If the gold atandanl
plank should be adopted m the platform
by eastern delegate, then tho favor
ins; the coinage of silver at the ratio of
It to 1. will aecede. -
It on the other hand, the so-called:
free silver delegates adopt a free coinage
plank, then the gold standard crowd will
leave, and ahouki the convention fait
to declare for woman cuff rage, the femi
nine portion of the convention will sever
Its connection with the party. It prom
ise to be a memorable convention for
the Prohibitionists, and bid fair to
wreck the party.
