Mount, of SjKkanc, when that' coun ty was called tor the pevsetftatkm of candidates, made a brief but animated speech, in which he adroitly referred to the turning down of Spokarte. but pledged l"o'al support to the party, 2-r.d a big Repullicanj joiajority . : His speech was well received. . . 'The platform says: "We endorse in its Urcty t"ie oa :trktic and in'.elHgn aduiiini-iratkm" of 'President ;McKink'y, and instruct the -delegate's .seated bv this conven tion, to cast the vote of. tits- tatc of Washington for his- rcnoii nation.

In tin? formjatkuv of such a governirnent. we advocate tlie home rule principle. We npjnse any backward step tin the subject of expansion." T1V turn down f ex-Senator VVikon was the sensation, and it he only one, of the con-vent ion. The ami-Wilson movement became apparent early yes terday, and it increased in intensity as the day advanced. The sotrthwestern candid-ites were emphatic in declaring that Wilson could have nothing. Pierce, Walla Walla and Whitman swung into line with them solidly, while King wa divide-!. Some of King's men held oat. urging, it not god polit-cs. Caucus ing went tin all night, and still King held off. They were then informed that, unless they caanve forward, they themselves would be shirt out and jive i no delegates. The same fight that was made on Hopkints had been alo w'tge i against Hughes, of King, wbo. was an acknowledged Wilson man. . Before morning rhey dropped Hughes, an I when the threat to down NettfeMer. King's other candidate, wa made, lh?y weakened, and at 8 o'clock the -combination that had been worked upon so long was completed. When Spokinc saw that their friends in Kings could no longer stay by them, they withdrew Hopkins, and the slate was quickly nn-t-e up. ' . , BRYAN ENDORSED.
