Louis Moore, who was arrested by Offi
cer Griffith while attempting to burglarize
a crockery store on ike street, has turn
ed out to be a noted burglar. Detective
Corbett and Officer Griffith went to
Moore's room in the Olympic house, at
the corner of West and Virginia streets,
and after a considerable talk with Ellen
Brown, a half-breed found there, they suc
ceeded in unearthing enough tools "to start
a machine shop, sawmill or ship yard. The
tolls were takeii to police headquarters,
where they have been identified as the
proprty of the Vulcan & Hicks iron works.
Moore has been living at the Olympic
about a month with Ellen Brown, who he
brought from Port Blakeley. There is no
doubt that he is a member of a gang cf
burglars, and that this woman knows more
than she cares to tell.
The unknown body fished out of the bay
yesterday that now lies at Butterworth &
Sons' undertaking parlors, awaiting iden
tification, is still a mystery. A man called
today, supposing from the description
given that it was Fred Hawkins, who
mysteriously disappeared some time ago,
but he finally decided that it was not.
"Then," said the undertaker, "we will call
him William Jones, but there is no proof
that it is Jones." • The man when search
led had $27.80 in his pocket. There seems
to be no doubt now but the man, who
ever he was, fell through into the bay
while under the influence of liquor.

Hon. John B. Allen will address the rat
ification meeting tonight. There is not a
man in the state who is a more convinc
ing public speaker than ex-Senator Allen
and it is always a pleasure to hear him dis
cuss the topics of the day in the political
■world. That Mr. Allen will delight the
great mass of citizens, who have their city
at heart, and that he will be so convincing
in his argument that not one of them who
hears him will think of turning this city,
over to the Populists and demagogues are
all forgone conclusions.
The Republicans will have a grand rati
fication meeting at Armory hall next Wed
nesday, tomorrow evening, which promises
to be the biggest meeting ever held in the
building. The central committee is doing
all in its power to make it such and there
is no doubt but that it will be such. The
leading and most influential citizens of the
city, irrespective of party, have signified
their intention to be present and make the
meeting a ratification one indeed. The
following well-known gentlemen have been

The Colored Independtn Club will hold a
very important meeting Thursday even
ing at the Red Men's hall, and every mem
ber of the club is expected to be present.
The club has had a committee interceding
before the campaign committees of the
various parties asking recognition for tne
colored voters, and tuts committee ma.ie
its report Thursday evening, netiee the ad
v lability of all being present.
"when the president, John W. Riggs, was
see" this morning at his place of business
he i?a.id to a reporter of this paper: "Let
it beVunderstood that this club, so far as
the president has got power to control it,
is not .looking for a few paltry boodling
dollars. What I hope to do is to get rec
ognition for the colored voters. Should
you hear of any of the members that is
trying to sell the votes of the members of
this club for a few lousy dollars, contrary
to the instructions of this club, you should
expose him in the fullest and you will do
me a favor, and I think the same would
be said by all of the better class of mem
bers in the club. The colored voters have
been sold out by blood-suckers too much,
and if I have any influence with the club
and its members, and I think I have, this
kind of business has got to stop. I do not
know that any one is doing this, but should
they do it, do not hesitate to expose them
and you will be doing the respectable col
ored men, who intend to make this their
home, >ai great favor. Our club heartily
indorses your course in making a fight for
recognition of the colored voters, who
have never been recognized to any great
extent, if really any. We feel certain that
you will have things different in this coun
ty, and for that reason a vote of thanks
was unanimously voted you at the last
meeting. . Our club consists of some of the
best citizens in the city, and it is by no
means made up entirely of grafters, as it
has been intimated by some grafters them
selves, who were barred from the club
from the fact that they were well-known
grafters and themselves largely responsi
ble for the colored men in this city and
county not having any recognition."
The committee consisting of Messrs.
Walker and Dixon (Mr. Gross not being
able to attend) waited upon the central
committee last night in their committee
rooms, and after laying their grievances
before the committee, the points were in
formally discussed by all present. The
central committee said that it was unable
to say what places would be given to col
ored men, but it assured them that cer
tain positions would be given to them,
and that the committee as well as other
colored men in the city would be consult
ed before any appointments were made.
Or, in other words, substantial recogni
tion would be granted the colored voters,
but the responsibility of such appoint
ments would fall on the shoulders of the
colored men themselves; that is, if good
men were not selected the colored voters
themselves would have to bear the blame
for such unworthy officials. This was sat
isfactory to the colored gentlemen, and
i they assured the central committee that
they and the most of the other colored
men in the city would do all they could,
as they have in the past, to see that the
■ present municipal ticket would be,elected.
As seen in yesterday's Republican,, in an
ticipation of the agreement,the Republican
ticket was placed at the head of our col- ;
umns and we are now in full sympathy
with the ticket. The Republican ticket is
a. very suitable one to us, and we stood
ready to support it at the least intimation
that it would be fair. So confident was
the ■ management 'that ~ the ';Republicans,
would do nojjaipg. but -li';fwas"itfr,' i.'?s ?
it had seer naone else as to what it would
do in.ca.ga the i party of our choice would
' not bfH&r. Friend nor foe neither .move,
us "wsHHft another ticket contrary to the
RePjH»i ticket, = and 1 it often happens
that we support some on the ticket that we
personally dislike. The Republican party
first to us and other parties when we no
longer have la friend in the Republican
At the last Republican primary election
there were 3,400 votes oast. There is no
great revolt in the party since that time.
In fact, if there is any, it will be hard
to find, hence it is reasonable to suppose
that the most of that vote will be cast for
the party nominees Tuesday. But admit
ting that Mr. Gilmah will get some of
them, which is extremely doubtful, the
number will be so small that it will be
more than doubly offset by the Democratic
votes that will come to the party. Thus it i
will be readily seen that the Republican
party will poll at least 4,000 votes, which,
allowing for the registered votes that will
not go out to vote on election day, it will
give Mr. Black a majority of allt he votes
oast, for not more than 7,500 votes of the
8,300 registered will be cast, and 4,000 will
be more than a majority.
Scan the list of vice presidents tonight
and it's wonderful the number of men who
will be on the platform as honrary mem
bers of the party who have made their
influence felt in the past, and__even in the
present by opposing wrong in the party.
Good men have been finally selected and
selected by the very fairest kind of means
and they are now ready to fall into line
and help to roll up an old time Republican
Capt. A. L. Treen has not as yet an
: nounced his withdrawal ' from the Popu
list ticket, but it is understood that he
will do so either today or tomorrow. Capt.
| Treen may feel somewhat hurt at not get
ting the nomination in the Republican con
vention, but it does no good to suffer him
self to be slaughtered to satisfy his feel
ings in the matter. To place one's self on
a Populist pyre because some friend went
back on you in the convention seems to us
absolute foolishness.
Frank D. Black's opportunities to be
j elected mayor are much brighter since the
Democratic convention indorsed Jordan.
Should the Democrats have nominated a
candidate for mayor such a nominee would
have received all the better element of the
Democratic voters. The other elements
may have supported Jordan, as they will in
this case, but those votes that the straight
Democratic nominee would have gotten
will now go to the Republican nominee, Mr.
Black, and he will be many votes stronger
thereby, whereas he would have been the
loser otherwise. The Republican ticket
will get the party strength and a large
part of the Democratic vote, and the in
dications are now that he will be elected
mayor by a majority rather than a plur
The Scandinavians will hold a Republi
can ratification meeting in Freed's hall,
on Ninth street, Friday night. This meet
ing will be addressed by Mr. Black and
"other prominent speakers. The meeting
has been thoroughly advertised and will
he a monster mass meeting, and all of
Jp* Scar.diknvian voters in the city will
loubtiess ix* present to shake hands with
the next mayor of Seattle:" f
i Craven and Wiley made good speeches
before the Fird ward club last night. The
candidates were also present and made
short speeches. ~
Judge Risedorph will act as one of the
vice presidents at the Armory hail to
night. The Republican is always glad to r
see such deserved Republicans receive rec
ognition at the hands of the party, though",
it,v be nothing more • for' the prtseAi than
honorary recognition. Judge Risedorj'h is
a hard worker for the party, and he has j
always been against corruption, and such
men should be conspicuous in the party
The disclosures of the ten-cent freehold
ers' scheme in the P. -I. this morning ought
to be sufficient proof that the proposed new
charter should be defeated. To incorpor
ate this freeholder clause in the charter
was but a hoax to deceive a certain class
of voters into the belief that the new char
ter was all that tney wished and that it
was a relief from certain bad features of
the present charter, when in a fact it is
the worse kind of a piece of demagogery.
No one shall hold an office but a freehold
er, says the new charter, and then the
very same gang of men that are responsi
ble for that clause in the proposed new
charter tare the same men that are now
hatching up this ten-cent freeholder prop
osition by having men to pay ten cents
into the campaign fund of Dr. Jordan, and
thereby become a shareholder in a lot in
the city, and then be declared rightful free
holders. What a baseless fabric of a
vision, and what a gigantic fraud both the
charter and this ten-cent freeholders'
scheme all are. This new charter that is
to be voted upon next Tuesday should be
turned down by an overwhelming major
ity. The adoption of it would be no less
a calamity than the election of Dr. Jor
dan as mayor of the city. Jordan and his
friend planned all that is mean, low, vic
ious and contemptable in this proposed
new charter, and it should be turned down
on that account. The instrument is a
Populist doctrine and they make their
boasts on the streets that it is their ideal
charter, and if adopted Seattle will virtual
ly be at the mercy of the Populist party
in the future. The charter should be vot
ed down if for no other reason. Liet no
man who laves Seattle raise his hand t(
vote for this proposed new charter no
quicker than you will vote for Jordan, the
father of this wonderful document.
The Kimball Opera Comique organiza
tion, headed by that supreme favorite,
little prima donna danseuse Corinne, will
present the second editon of Frazer &
Gill's highly successful operatic extrava
ganza "Hendrick Hudson, Jr." at the Se
attle theater this week for three nights,
commencing Wednesday, with the same
great cast, scenery, costumes, electrical
and calcium effects and augmented orches
tra as seen during the New York, Boston
and Chicago engagements. The company
numbers over sixty people, and embraces
the names of many popular artists Who
have been prominent in opera, comedy,
spectacle and extravaganza, including
Ben F. Grinnell, Charles Fostelle, Henry
Dietz, Lindsey Morrison, Barney McDon
ough, J. Henry Mack, Frank Hayden, the
Nichols sisters Lula and Mabel, Lillian
Knott, Fanny DaCosta and a number of
j high-class specialty . performers. The
j chorus is said to be one of unusual excel
lence. Mrs. Kimbali has always had the
credit of selecting the best singing and
symmetrically formed chorus on the Amer
ican stage. ■
It is conceded by ■' musical critics that
Corinne is the finest lady mandolin soloist
in America.' She is an accomplished mu

Yesterday was truly Seattle day about

The lower house of congress has very
mildly censured Hon. Thomas F. Bayard,
but it "was a rebuke and there is no good
and sufficient reason why Mr. Cleveland

man to represent this nation abroad.
It seems that Con: A. Hideout will have
to start all over to get his application

Everett has lost the county seat again.
Judge Moore has decided against the City

Justice has wreaked its awful vengeance
on Miss Plagler, he young white lady that,
wilfully shot down an innocent little col
ored boy in Washington, D. C, some
i months ago, by having the family carriage
to take her to jail where she was retained,
in confinement for three long and dread
, ful hours. This is the most shameful
piece of legal mockery that has ever been
j perpetrated in a civilized land or that
I wias ever placed upon a docket book. Had
| the scales been reversed and had a young
colored woman so recklessly shot down
some prominent white man's little son, no
power could have hardly saved her from
being lynched, and certainly no power
could or would have tried to save her from
life imprisonment, if not hanging. Such
justice, right in the mouth of congress
and under its immediate supervision, is a
blot and a disgrace to American liberty
and supposed justice. But Miss Plagler
and her distinguished family now have a
family record to which they can point
with prideit is that they have a mur-'i
deress in the family. The average Ameri- |
can. girls have gone crazy all but with
in the past few years in getting an op
portunity to wed some foreign count, *<nd

Flagler's family can now boast of a gen-

equally as honorable as to be a countess;
and it may give rise to a new fad, and
then this lady will have the honor of ueing
