A great many good stories had been told, and two well known actors had recited. The chairman called George Alfred Townsent, the well known newspaper correspondent and au thor. Mr. l‘ownsend was received with applause. His six feet towered above those around him, and when he started to speak the boys began to guy him,as is t e custom of the Cloverites. But he kept on, and in a few moments all was quiet, for he was reciting in amar velously sweet voice and with superb ges turea war poem of his own. called “The War Correspondent’s Story.” The recital was most dramatic and the pathos brought tears to the. eyes of the hearers. When Mr. Townsend sat down there was terifﬁc applause, and the chairman complimented hlm by saying that he recited better than did t e actors. and everybody present agreed with him. Mr. Townsend can makea big reputation on that platform Whenever he wants to begin. Mill‘inery at a Sacriﬁce.

And the State Must Pay the Troop: for Queuing the Riots in King County.--'l‘he Juda‘es’ Declslon. . The supreme court has granted the per emptory writ prayed for by aportiou of the state militia to compel the board of military auditors to audit the vouchers for servmes during the King county troubles, such services, the appellants contending, being for the state.” On June 24 a body of armed men riot~ ‘ously threatened to destroy the buildings 1 and machinery connected with the opera tions ofa valuable coal mine at Gilmau. The manager of the mine appealed to Colonel I-laines for troops. The colonel declined to act without orders, but for warded to Governor Ferry a telegram stating the condition of affairs, which, with the reply,have already been printed in THE TRIBUNE. On the evening of June 27 a pitched battle occurred between the con tending factions at Franklin and before day break Companies B and D were at the scene. On June 29th companies D and E were sent to Gilman to quell an out break there, aud remained on duty until July 16. At Franklin, Newcastle, Black Diamond and Gilman, the rioters contin ued to move in armed bodies, when the governor wired Colonel Haines to disarm all unauthorized armed bodies where there was danger of riot, or a breach of the peace. In order to be on the safe side, and not deeming his force sufﬁcient to carry out such suggestions, Colonel Haines wired the governor asking if his order al lowed him to use, if necessary for the pres ervation of the peace, any companies of this reglinielit other than t rose now in, the ﬁeld. 0 this the governor replied: "You can use all of the First regiment for the purpose indicated in 'my dispatch this 'morning, if necessary.” The supreme court says, in summing up the case: _ IN This STATES snavrcn. We ﬁnd therefore, that these troops were engaged in the state’s business, and were therefore, in the state’s service. Their po sition is well illustrated by the case of ltla vs. Smith, 51:11 Gray 13 ~ In many in stances in the history of the country the troops of the United States have been sent to the assistance of the states, as notably in 1877, when at many points railroad trains carrying the mails were threatened with stoppage by strikers. But, although the relation of the states to the United States has no analogy to that of counties to the states, it has never been thought of that the ay or subsistence of the regular army Wiiile thus engaged was a Charge against the several states; the reasons be ing two, first, that the United States had a direct interest in the forwarding of the mails, and, secondly, that it is bound, by the constitution. to guarantee each of the states against domestic violence, when ap ~pealed to. Those ransomms. In the argument of this case stress was laid by both sides upon a critical examina tiOlbOf the several telegrams which passed between the governor and the colonel of the First regiment. But in the view we take of the matter, it matters little whether that of June 24th from the colonel be con sidered as a request for advice. or the com munication of afact, viz, That one riot had occurred and more were threatened; or whether that of the governor, of date June 25th, was an order depended upon by a call by an officer named in section 8601br an armed force. Ample grounds existed, as shown by the petition, for the governor’s order of that date, and whether they did or did not his excellency was the sole judge of the situation, and his decision was not to be questioned either by the troops, or the courts, or in any other way than that oiutedoutiu theconstitution. Martin vs. hfott, 12 Wheaten, 30. Vanderhcydeh vs. Young, 11 Johns, 150. KNOCKING our reanr‘s ARGUMENT. Before leaving the case we desire to no tice an argument which was used to sustain the position that the troops were not in the service of the state, viz: That they were not called out in accordance with tie act of 1890, deﬁning the gouernor’s duties. In response to that, in the ﬁrst place, it can not matter, so far as ' their right to pay is concerned, whether there was a reasonable ground for calling them out or whether the call was formally correct or not. The ﬁrst, last and only duty of the soldier is to obey the command of his superior ofﬁcer when called upon to march with his com rades, and if he does not obcyhe is pun ished under the statute. The supreme executive power of the state is vested in the governor, and by the terms of the militia article of the constitu tion he has power to call forth the militia to execute the laws of the state. Art. sec. 2. In this particular the language of our Iconstitution is in substance the same as i, that of the Act (”1.795 conferring the same t ower on the president of the United gtates. And the eli‘ect is the same, in that it places in his hands the sole power of judging and determining, from the facts in his possession, when the exlgency has arisen which makes it incumbent upon him to cail forth the military power of the state. The covmmon’s rowan.- The Act of 1890 begins with these words: “In addition to those prescribed by the constitution, the governor has the power, and may‘perform the duties pre scribed in this an the following sections," but, as has been seen, the Twelfth author ity therein assumed to .be conferred already existed, being fully covered by the phrase “to execute the laws of the state.” in the militia article. The course of action there prescribed cannot be binding upon the gov ernor in any case where in his gudgment the danger of riot and bloodshe is so im minent that time will not serve for the de lay, necessary to so many antecedent formalities. v PROMPT ACTION NECESSARY. In these cases prevention is to be de sired, not cure; and it is to be hoped that for all time in this state, as in this case, a show of force. without the ﬁring of a shot, will be suﬁlcient to secure respect for the law, and the safety of the people. From the petition here we learn that in a remote, unpoliced district of King county, the sheriff was attempting to do his duty against the greatest cm s, and almost with out possibility of assistance from the pew er of his county. Hundreds of mis vuid ed persons had already had one battle in which human lives were taken, and the coming of the morning’s sun promised to see the light so on. Certain y, then, if everthis was a time when prom ptaction was not only proper, but absolutelgv demanded. Upon the ﬁrst telegram of t e Colonel of the First Regiment. the governor’s imme diate response was, in substance. “If on are assured by any ofﬁcer mentionedy in Sec. 860 of the code that an emergency ex ists at Gilman, go there with as many com panies of your regiment as you think nec essary, and assist the authorities in pre serving the peace and enforcing the law." Thus the soldiery were sent to the neigh ' bor-hood to be readv in case they were needed. and their mere presence proved sufﬁcient. a ran wmr MUST ISSUE. That no proclamation was issued . annol aﬁect the validity of the action then‘tsken, or the right of the soldiers to their: pay But at any rate section 37 of the military law of 1890, passed at a subsequent day of the session, must be read with the act in reference to the governor, and if there is conﬂict between the two, controls it; and if there was no such section it is not rea sonable to suppose that the legislature in tended to restr ct the governor's constitu tional authority byimposing a mandatory condition precedent to his action, which, in many. if not the most of the cases where he would be called upon to exercise it, would have the effect to delay his action until too late to be of any use. Let the peremptory writ issue as prayed for. STILES, J. We concur: Anders, G. J.: Hoyt, J.; Scott, J.; Dunbar, J. ' ’l‘he McKinley Bill In normally.

A few weeks ago he was again tendered the position,coupled with the assurance that Goff would get the circuit judgeship. He then went to call upon Mr. Blaine. “What effect,” asked Elkins, iii the course of their talk, “would my appointment have upon your presiden tial chances next year 7” "Absolutely none,”Blaine replied. “As I feel at present 1' shall not be a candidate for nomination.
