One of the bright pictures of the fut
ure cherished by the people of Seattle
la that of a fine navy yard at Lake Wash
ington, a beautiful sheet of water
twenty-six miles long and averaging
four miles in width. It also has a good
and sufficient depth for the anchorage of
the Great Eastern anywhere through its

higher than Puget sound and the ground
easily worked without blasting. The
chief advantage of a fresh water harbor
for ships, of course, is that the teredo or
ship worm, the pest of all warm salt
waters and especially of Puget sound,
would be eliminated. Large bills for
naval vermifuge would thus be rendered
unnecessary and ironclads especially
would become less porous.
The teredo is one of a genus of ic
phalous, testaceous mollusts that bore
and penetrate the bottoms of ships and
other submersed wood. The ship worm
belongs to a family of conchiferous or
laineUi branchiates. They are not,
strictly speaking, worms at all, as they
have the true molluscau organization
and the elongation of tho body is sitnply
duo to the excessive protraction back
ward of the siphonnl tubes, which thus
give us a long waisted mollusk, vul
garly called a worm. If I do not make
myself perfectly clear, or if I use words
which bother or confuse the scientist, 1
hope he will not be at all backward
about coming to m for an explanation.
The abdominal or shell covered por
tion of the animal is comparatively
small, and, according to Theodore Gill,
is almost subglobular. The siphonal
portion is. in proportion, extremely long
The description of this bird increases in
interest as we procoed, and a word or
two further regarding this little acepha
lous, testaceous mollusk, which patiently
goos to work to sink a great ship, may
not be entirely ont of phure at this time,
tor 1 am not radically opposed to fact3
in the abstract. It is only the abnormal,
protracted and chronic use of facts that
1 deprecate and deplore.
The family of Teredinida, to winch
the ship worm belongs, have siphons that
are united for the greater part of their
length, but free towards their ends, and
these are armed with two peculiar elon
gated shelly appendages called styles or
ei honal pallertes.
The teredo doss not care for social rec
ogmtion, but devotes irs life to this great
task. With no appetite fur club life, yet
ignoring its marital relations und negli
gent of domestic responsibilities, the tere
do gives up its whole ezistnca to mis
taken and ill Hfiviaeci efforts to damage
tho commerce t the world.

will be found that the worms are so

Seattle cut 10000,000 feet of lumber
last year and had to import a lot more
for its own use, and yv it costs $100 an
acre to clear off and desttpy the beauti
ful timber that now stands on what are
the lots and additions to the city. I saw
a pine tree growing in the park that was
forty-four feet in circumference sir feet
from tho ground. Many others near it
were about as large.
Most every stranger thinfe the snow
must have been very deep in Washington
in winter because the stumps are eo high,
some of them being cut off eight and ten
feet above the ground, but that is not so.
I learned very early that this pine is ex
tremely pitchy at the base or butt, .so
much so as to be practically worthless,
so tho lumberman cuts a notch above this
objectionable point and inserting a spring
board with iron or steel points to it, he
mounts tViiH little scaffold and cuts off the
tree at a point which would have been
two or three feet above his head if hehad
stood on the ground.
To test the courtesy of the woodsmen
2ilr. Dearborn and I, one afternoon while
driving through the forest, assumed tho
Parker house role of Boston tourists in
search of information, and asked thirty
or forty different woodsmen about this
apparent depth of snow on the land, and
in each case got a polite and lucid ex
planation of the whole matter, so plain
and clear that anybody with a single,
disinfected brain could, not help under
standing it. I could not avoid contrast
ing this uniform courtesy of the piney
woods with the paucity of politeness and
intellectual desolation sometimes met
with at the elevated railway gates and
other thought ganglia of New York.
Seattle is called the Phcenix city. This
is because she was consumed by fire last
summer and is now almost entirely re
built. The Phcenix was a fabled bird
which could rehabilitate itself after hav
ing been consumed by fire, and was even
more bright and cheerful afterward than
before. Even tho scorched feathers of
the Phcenix, it is said, did not smell dis
agreeably. Phoenixes are now very
scarce, and a setting of Phoenix eggs
this spring would bring a fancy price.
The day is not very distant when, like
the buffalo, the last phoenix bird will
have disappeared from our shores. Seat
tle is a port of entry, and her land office
shows more entries than any other in the
United States, it is said.
Human life is quite safe now in Seat
tle, the sanguinary Chinook having be
come quite tame and docile. I entered
the cage of one of them while there and
remained twenty mizuites. The Chinook
is essentially a water fowl and is most at
homo in a dugout. When he lands ha
loses his dignity, for he is knockkneed
and has a gait like a mud turtle with a
stone bruise. Before one knee can paea
the other it has to have a written per
mit. The squaws are industrious to a
degree, bringing in to '"own every morn
ing large bouquets of dew laden clams,
which are sold at a nominal price to the
people of Seattle.
The churches aro numerous and well
built, even denomination being repre
sented. The Methodist, Baptist and
Lutheran churches have services in three
languages, ho that each may attend and
put up his petition in the language to
which he is most accustomed.
On the sound "the typical American,"
of whom we hear so much and read so
much in tho books written by foreigners
who come to our shores, smoke a cigar,
take a drink and go home, practically dis
appears. It is a great congress of repre
sentatives from all states and all nations.
The Yankee, tho reformed rebel, the
negro and the Chinaman lie down to
gether, and the cosmopolitan children
of the great globe, under gentle skies,
toil on together and prosper together.
T3ie papers are handsome and metro
politan in appearance two in the morn
ing and two in tho evening. A press
club was formed during my visit and
started off with splendid prospects.
Seattle has no horse cars. The talent
ed, versatile and ambidexterous bobtail
car driver can never enter there, and the
plensmg aroma of car stables does
i not cling to tue gooa ciotnes or rne pas
I senger when he gets off. Two fine lines
! of electric cars, with four systems of
cable cars which scoot up tho hills and
across the city, give a style of rapid tran
sit which would put many an older city
to the blush.
Along the water fron lots were 'ocat
ed: then the tide water flats, covering
several hundred thousand acres, more
or less, were located as lots and staked
out, so that the bay looks like a forest of
overgrown shad poles. That was not all;
AS BOSTON TOUFJ5TS.
these proprietors of aquatic lots claimed
as riparian owners the margin of deep
water which accrued to the lands, sub
merged though ther were, and some day
thefkeen eyed prophet sees nere the "Badfc:
bayof Seattle, filled in, and the business
ponhon of the city, where now the tide
rises almost as high as the prices, placed
upon these humid building sites. That
is not all. The buildings, one by one,
arewadingaut toward the deep water,
andtEactories, ware houses and residences,
standing on tall and stately piles, creep
farther and farther out as the weeks roll
by. Instead of the missionary and the
wood chopper, the pile driver becomes
ttw-pioneer at this point, and the crus
tacean, instead of the red brother, gath
ers up his household utensils aud slinks
away to seek other haunts.
Wages are good, work is plenty, and
canvas stores are giving place to hand
some brick and stone buildings. One
lot sold for $50,000 while I was there,
and the music of the jackplane salutes
the rapidly receding forest.
