IS LANDED FOR
FORGERY
But L. C. Morris Declares
He Is Merely Victim of
Mistaken Identity.
HE CAN PROVE ALIBI
Telegram From Salt Lake
Asked to Have Him
Taken Up Here.
HE FITS DESCRIPTION
Morris Has, Hired an At
torney and Will Fight
-the Arrest.
A neatly dressed man of medium heig4ht,
wearing a red mustache and answering to
the name of L. C. Morris, is in the
county jail. The prisoner says that he is
a man of family aml that his home is in
Anaconda.
He was picked up last night by Deputy
Sheriff Burke and is said to be wanted
in Salt Lake City for forgery. The
amount of money that Morris, or his
double with a similar name, obtained is
not known, the telegram whiich reached
the sheriff's office last night simply say
Ing: "Arrest L. C. Morris for forgery."
Then followed a description of the man
wanted.
Burke, among the other deputies, was
furnished with the description and shortly
after q o'clock "spotted" the man now
behind the bars on Broadway.
"Hello, there, Morris," said the dep
uty.
The man turned, and in answer to ques
tions, said his name was L. C. Morris.
"You're the man I want then," said the
deputy. "I have orders to arrest you for
forgery committed in Salt Lake City."
Morris demurred, but without avail and
was taken to the county jail and locked
up in the witness room, pending further
advices from the Mormon metropolis.
Seen today, Morris declares that he is a
victim of mistaken identity and that he has
not been in Salt L.ake City for a long time.
He asserts that lie has been working in
the smelters at Anaconda for several
months and that while he may fit the de
scription of the man wanted he can prove
an alibi.
He has secured the services of an attor
ney and it is probable that he will seek
freedom by means of habeas corpus.

HENRY MUELLER IS PROBABLE
NOMINEE OF THE REPUBI ICANS
Convention in Session at Auditorium--Joseph Corby
Made Temporary Chairman--Great Interest
Evinced in the Mjcting.
The republican city convention was held
with great enthusiasm at the Auditorium
today. The hall was filled with delegates
and spectators and the business of the con
vention was carried out with great interest
and spirit.
Before the convention met it was stated
by men on the inside that the nomination
anl indorsement of Henry Mueller for
mayor was certain, and that the republi
cans would select their own nomince for
treasurer and fuse on the aldermen.
The police judgeship was understood
to go to the democrats. Among those
prominently named for the nomination for
treasurer were 1). J. Charles, Neill Mc
KAISER INVITES AMERICAN SQUADRON TO
VISIT KIEL DURING WORK OF THE REGATTA
IY AISOCIATED PReaS.
Washington, March as.-The Post will
any today: Emperor William of Germany
has given further striking proof of his de
sire to maintain friendly relations with the
United States. In a personal cablegram to
the president, he has invited the fleet of
the United States in Atlantic waters to
visit Kiel during regatta week in May.
The emperor's message will not be made
public until the president has sent his re
ply. It is believed, however, that the in
vitation has its birth in the announcement
recently made by Secretary Moody that the
fleet would go in May on a cruise across
the ocean with Lisbon as its destination.
Since the receipt of the emperor's invita
tion, it has been a subject of careful con
siderat-on between the president and
cabinet. There is reason to believe that
the navy had practically decided to aban
don the cruise to Lisbon, because of publi
cations in regard to the lessons that would
be learned by it and which it was appre
hended might ereate an unpleasant im
pression in Portugal. That the invitation
would be declined was the general impres
sion after the meeting of the cabinet yes
terday, but the declination will be couched
in terms which would in nowise be of
fensive to the German emperor and the
German people.
The squadron invited by the emperor is
one of the best in the American navy, the
Illinois being the flagship.

eral committee to have all the arrange
ments in charge.
The committee has received from Wil
liam Loeb, Jr., secretary to the president,
a dispatch announcing the presidentis,
approval of the outline of the plan of
entertainment in Butte. This outline sug
gests meeting the president at the depot
by a delegation of citizens, eicorting him
to a place where he may address the peo
ple and then drive about town.
Arrangements have been made to have

unteer cavalry to act as an escort to the
president, being a sort of bodyguard to
accompany the presidential carriage
through the streets and during the pa.
rade. Captain D'Gay Stivers has been re.
quested to take command of the escort
and will probably accept the honor. In
speaking of the matter this afternoon,
Captain Stivers said: "Whatever the
president wishes done will undoutIJy
be done. We do nut know exactly $aL.
plan will be adopted in the line of march.
Some have suggested that a double line
of cavalry accompany the president's .sar
rilae, while others think taat It would
be better to have the rough riders pre
cede or follow the conveyance.
"It looks as if we could get all of pbpo

case they are needed. The troops will be
armed with sabres, that being the weapon
of ceremony. The escort will accompany
