Her screams attracted the a tun I lun of pedestrians and causul the two assailants to run away. The wom an's Injuries rendered her temporarily un conscious. When policemen had arrived on the scene she had recovered and she gave them an account ot the brutal af fair, but she nabl the assault was so sud den nnd unexpected that she did not muko out who Hie men were. Captain Flahlve, In charge of police headiiuarters last nUht, was extremely indignant and word was soon passed about aniuin' all the police In thu northern part of thu city that tt tenuous elforts should bo made to capture the sluggers. They were still at large at a late hour. Moran and Cm roll were positively Iden tified by Johnston yesterday morning, and they were arraigned before Justice Joyce on a charge of robbery. They were com mitted to the county Jail by the Justice to await a preliminary hearing on Febru ary 21. Moran was not allowed to remain In Jail very long.

UNDESIRABLEJOREIQNERS. An Interesting Paper I'pon Immigration Item! by Itev. W. T. Williamson lie- rorp thp .Mlnltrr' AIIIiiihp. Tho lice. T, Wllllatnton read a paper on Iho subject, "ItestrlctPd Immigration," before, the .Ministers' Alliance Scstprtlny morning, lie raid, In the course ot It: "The .determining fact of nil government Is Individual chatactrr.

Hchlnd our con stitution must be the spirit of liberty toy ing. Intelligent, patriotic men. "Tho most Imminent peril facing the public Is tho Imptility ot Its political life In our nation beneath domes nnd nrches conseerntpd lo liberty, laws nre ofttlmes enacted which afterwards remain dead let ters Upon the statulo books.

Millions or the lowest strntltm ot Huropc, having landed on free shorps, iipc their IIpw tottlld freedom ns a license to live exempt from the penalties of tho low. Victims ot Iluropenti despotism and mis rule, thry believe nil government lo be oppressive. There enn be no security nf government while laws lemnlti on our statute hooks unenforced and the most vitiated clnsrts of lluropo continue to be landed on our shores. "Two duties nvvtilt nil Christian patriots. First, to close the doors of tho nation and admit no more of the crlmlnnl class. Let our Immigrant! bo subjected to the most Held pxninlnntlon. physical nnd moral. We must not, nt our peril, admit the diseased, the Immoral or the class Inimical to the bi'st Interests of Ihr icpubllc. uur second duty Is to preach the Gospel to those al ready here. Therein lies our own snlvnllon. I nm one of those who believe Hint tho temedy for our national Ills Is found, not so much ill law and order leagues and Iho. thousand and onn organizations, but 111 tho Gospel of our Lord Jesus, H wo lose America we will lose the world. II we enn not hold our own, then the cause Is help less und hopeless. America, because or her wealth, culture, schools and favorable op portunity's, must always lie In the van gum d of missionary eliterpilsc. The Anglo Saxon must, under the Great Captain, savo tho world. Tim destiny of our nation none can tell, but our ruttito will be measured by our religious life." The paper wns warmly discussed. Itev, W. F. ltichardson said th.it the Immigrants to our country nre becoming n great politi cal power. In some stales, men who have been In the country but three to six months can vote. .Minnesota Is n notable Instance. Our piesldetits and national olllcers aic elected largely by Immigrants, while lin tlvo born Americans cannot vote until they nre 21 years of age, Itev. Dr. J. W. l.ovu rather took the part of the Immigrants. He said that It Is becoming popular nowadays to denounce Immigrants, when It must bo remembered that our own nncestors were Immigrants. "I know my ancestors were good Immi grants," he said, "though 1 don't know anything nhout yours." Mnny or the Im migrants from Germany, Switzerland and Holland, ho said, me unsurpassed for hon esty, piety, purity, uprightness. Discrim ination should be made, and there should bo no wholesale denunciation. Hev. Dr. T. II. Vassal1 said that ho was beginning to believe that excessive Immi gration Is both a plague and a peril, lie said he believed that a very large propor tion of the Immigrants of to-day ato very undesirable. Itev. J. M. Cromer was of a contrary opinion. Tho foreign born part of the pop ulation, he believed, taku a lending part In every spiritual and moral reform. Going as tin uncle only as the war, many ot tno immigrants who have como to the United States aro of tho very best character. However, care should bo taken. Hev. Dr. W. P. George said he spoke ftom tho standpoint of one who wns an American from choice. Ho said he did not believe In tho cry ngnlnst Immigration. Columbus was unfortunate because he was a toielgncr, and what was worse, lip was what would now be called "a dago." "We talk of the character ot foreigners who land here," he said, "and yet Gtiltpau and Wilkes Hooth were both native born Amcrlcnns. Krlesson, Inventor of the Monitor, wns a foreign born American. Wo deal In things Huropoan to-day, and wo should not believe that thu best of Kuiopo Is yet exhausted." Itev. A. 11. Phillips said that one ot the best friends he ever had was a. German, nnd so was one of the best of his class mates. "Hut the question Is not tho good that comes with tho foreign element," be said. "It Is with tho bad which vastly preponderates. Home, Greece, Chaldea, Ilabvlon, Mgypt nnd nil the nations of an it'iulty, ns a recent lecturer said, were s.ifo until the stranger came. We should de mand a clean bill or health of every Im migrant." THEY COULDNJSHAKE MAGGIE Miss Wachter Proved to lip an Important Witness for Hurry Iluyiiiird. Minneapolis, Minn., Feb. IS. "How docs It look now, old man?" nslied Hurry Hayward after court adjourned this afternoon, as he slapped a friend on the back and laughed heartily. He was In n good liumor. It had been a dny for tho defense. After four long weeks of trial, the de fense had at last made a mark with the testimony of Mngglo Wnchter, the stenographer, the stato having with drawn Its objections to her testifying. Miss Wnchter was voluble, positive und could not be shaken by cross-examination. She called Illlxt a liar, O'Dell a schemer to make money out of the coun ty and Assistant Attorney Hull a bull dnzer and lntlmldntor of women. Mrs. V. W. Hayward, the mother of both boys, came Into court to hear her elder son again accused of the crime from tliu lips of the woman who was to Impeach the testimony of Hllxt. She took It calmly, although there wns n look of satisfaction upon her face as she heard the witness testify nnd heard how Jlr. Nye failed to shako her. Harry was jubilant, but yet controlled himself with occasional bursts ut laughter as .Miss Wnchter would make an unusually savago thrust nt Mr. O'Dell or .Mr. Hall. Aftur court adjourned Mr. Hull slated that there was not a word ot truth In what she had said about him. In her evidence she said that Hall lind called on her and attacked her character In n most abusive and scandalous manner. "Why, our meeting wns most pleas ant," said Mr. Hull. "Do they think I am a fool to talk tho way sho says to a woman?" For the sake of Impeachment Jlr, Hnll asked tho witness It she had not told John A. Olson that If he would go tn tho defense and tell them he know something about the murder case, ho could muko plenty of money. ,.Sho denied It llatly. She was asked If she did not threaten -Mr. O'Dell tn mnko It hot for him, nnd If she did not say sho had been offered money for mist's state ment.
