A Bright Outlook.
Another year will witness a greater
f activity in railroad building than ever
before. Two reasons exist therefor.
First, as is generally the case in all ex
* tensive business and speculative enter-
I prises, a halt is called, and caution ob
: served the year of a presidential election
which may, one way or another, through
a change in governmental policy, effect
.values—may retard or promote business
prosperity. Second, the great transcon
tinental lines have, the past year, been
mill-shilling their reserves and closiDg
up matters in hand, ready for more ac
tive operations next year. The Chicago,
Burlington & Quincy road is now at
Denver, with one branch at Choyenne,
Wyo., with another, the latter of which
is keeping pace with the Chicago &
Northwestern, now also completed into
central Wyoming; both of which will
probably enter the great grain fields of
eastern Oregon and Washington and
■western Idaho, and find a western termi
nus on Puget Sound. As the late elec
tion has settled the future policy of the
country—protection to our industrial
interests, for years to come, the coming
year will witness a wonderful progress
in the construction of tho six great lines
of road toward Pnget Souu 3, their final
terminus, with various branches of tho
Bjstems already extended to this coast.
These results are as sure as it is that
Gen. Harrison is elected president of
the United States. What do they mean ?
They mean the development of the new
est and richest section of the continent
—the Northwest Pacific slope, from the
Rocky mountains to the Pacific ocean, a
section of vaster, more varied and richer
rebouroes of nature than any other equal
area of the country; they mean a mill
ion people in Washington within the
next two years; they mean extensive
manufacturing interests of every char
acter, a large commerce in foreign na
tions, a national navy yard, a merchant
marine ship yard, an establishment for
the manufacture of arms, numerous in
land cities, and three or more groat com
mercial cities on Puget Sound. What
gr?.sd_reanlts! They are sure to come,
and that, too, during the administration
of tho political organization tho people
recently restored to power.
Why We Should Be Admitted.
Tho New York Tribune, in urging the
claims of Washington, says:
"The population has nearly doubled
in five years, and the growth in prosper
ity, as shown by the taking up of va
cant lands, the increase of taxable prop
erty and the development of lumber,
mining and other industries, is euqally
striking. During the year ending June
20 last, 696,384 acres of government
lands were taken by pre-emption, home
stead and desert land entries, which are
those usually resorted to by actual sot
tiers. The Northern Pacific railroad
sold during the same period 268,700
acres to 1,649 purehiisors, being an av
erage of 173 acres for each. This gives
a total of 965,084 acres disposed of to
actual settlers, the greater part of which
will doubtless be used for agriculture.
This is an area equal to about two-fifths
of the new land opened in Dakota dur
ing the same period, and makes a re
markable showing, considering that
Washington is not so distinctively an
agricultural country as the larger terri
tory. Besides these, there were other
entries under the land laws, bringing the
total sales to 1,292,473 acres. There are
1,197 miles of railway in tho territory.
By the assessment rolls its taxable prop
erty has increased from §18,922,922 in
1887 to $84,621,182 in 1888, a gain of
$75,698,260 in ten years. It may be
that the estimates of population in mo6t
of these territories ehuuld be discounted
somewhat on account of local pride and
a natural anxiety of all citizens to reach
the figure requisite for admission to the
Union. But as Governor Semple quaint
ly remarks in his report: 'There can
never be any doubt about the conserva
tism of a statement of jp)ues taken from
an assessment roll. Whatever else an av
erage American citizen may neglect, he
never forgets to beat down the assessor.'
It is safe, therefore, to assume that this
valuation is a moderate one.
'• The lack of facilities for the collec
tion of statistics has made the govern-
or's report somewhat meagre in respect
to the development of various industries.
Enough is known, however, to show that
rapid progress is being made. Within
the year direct shipments of tea from
China and Japan have begun to pass
through the ports of Washington ou
their way to the Mississippi valley and
the East. Ores from mines in the in-
terior are beginning to seek tide-water,
and the yield of bread-stuffs, fruit, fish,
lumber and shingles has so increased
that all the railroads are said to be seri
ously embarrassed for want of cars to
meet the traffic. Stock-raising is a
growing industry, and the governor de
clares that more inquiries have been
made at his office for information on
this subject than upon any other. Min
ing is developing, and will play a large
part in the future prosperity of Wash
"Tho situation of Washington is one
of its claims to statehood. Holding the
northwest corner of the framework of
the Union, it has a magnificent coast
lino on the Pacific. Its commerce will
in time be great, when both labor and
capital aro at hand to make productive
its vast forests, rich mines and fertile
fields. Its population, too, is of an ad
mirable class. In this respect it is as far
apart in character as it is in distance
from New Mexico, the admission of
which is urged on the ground of having
an almost equal population. New Mex
ico is largely inhabited by a mongrel
class of Mexicans and Indians, while a
largo majority of the population of
Washington come from a hardy Ameri
can stock, men of courage arid enter
prise, animated by the spirit of pioneers.
A proof of this is found in the interest
taken in education, and in tho liberal
provision made by the people for schools
and colleges. There is every reason why
Washington should be promptly admit
ted into the family of states, probably
under tho name of Tacoma, and no rea
son why it should be excluded any
The Tribune might have added that
there is less speculating in land than'in
any other territory, and that the men
who have invested their money here are
shrewd, careful business men who havo
come to grow up with the country.
The Flower of " Hope."
We doubt that the "orthodox" pulpit
has ever produced, or ever ■will produce,
anything equal to this brief funeral ad
dress from the lips of Robert G. Inger
"All wish for happiness beyond this
life. All hope to meet again the loved
and lost. In every heart grows this sa
cred flower of eternal hope. Immortal
ity is a word that hope through all the
ages has been whispering to love. The
miracle of thought we cannot under
stand. The mystery of death and hope
we cannot comprehend. This chaos to
the world has never been explained.
The golden bridge of life from gloom
emerges, and our shadow rests. Beyond
this we do not know. Fate is speech
less, destiny is dumb, and the secret of
the future has never yet been told. We
love, we wait, we hope. The more we
love, the more we fear; upon the tender
est heart the deepest shadows fall. All
paths, whether filled with thorns or flow
ers, end here. Here success and failure
are the same. The rag of wretchedness
and the purple robe of power lose differ
ence and distinction in this democracy
of death; character alono survives; love
alone is immortal. But to these comes
a time when the fevered lips of life long
for the cool, delicious kiss of death.
Tired of the dust and glare of the day,
they hear with joy the rustling gar
ments of night. What can we say of
death? What can wo say of the dead?
Where they have gone reason cannot go,
and from theneo revelation has not come;
but let us believe that over the cradle
nature bends and smiles, and lovingly
above the dead in benediction holds her
Lynch Law Violence.
The killing and wounding of so many
men who attempted to take the murder
er Hawes from tho Birmingham (Ala
bama) jail, will likely serve as a whole
sale lesson to lynchers. When men or
ganize to take the law into their own
hands they must suffer the consequences.
The sheriff at Birmingham did his duty.
He did not fire on the mob until he was
forced to do so. He is the right man in
the right place. Too often in such cases
sheriffs yield np their keys without a
struggle and by their action prove that
they are either cowards or in symimthy
with the law breakers. Lynching in a
community whero wo have established
tribunals to deal with criminals are a
blot on civilization. The men who com
posed that mob in Birmingham were
bad citizens and the sheriff gained a
great victory for law and justice.
More Evidence.—That tho earnings
of the Northern Pacific road should have
increased during the past year as much
as those of all the other great railroads
combined, observes the Spokare Wel
come, should be a source of jubilation to
our people. It demonstrates that we are
becoming a great market for eastern
manufacturers, and a great exporter of
raw materials; that our welfare is wor
thy of the careful consideration of east
ern business men; that we are increas
ing in population, wealth and resources;
that our particular corner of the great
republic is forging ahead more rapidly
than any other portion, and that the
time has arrived when railroad competi
tion will be something more than com
petitive —that it will be profitable. We
know of no better advertisement than
the report of the railroad companies re
Washington Weatheb.—Our readers
in the eastern storm and blizzard states
are informed that in this territory, this
20th day of December, 1888, there is
neither snow nor ice; that the grass, as
usual, is groen on the hillsides and in
the valleys; that east of the Cascades
plowing is going on; that building and
other outdoor improvements, including
railroad building are going on ns in
summer. That west of the Cascades
the grass is not only green, but flowers
are in bloom in the open outdoor gar
dens where they bloomed during the
summer; the weathor is mild with more
or less warm rains; outdoor business is
lively as during summer, in every direc
tion of industry. In January there is
usually some slight flurries of snow,
generally disappearing within 24 hours,
and a week or two of cool nights, which
comprehends our winter, lv February
the winter has ended; and in eastern
Washington, the Chinook comes with
its warm tropical breath and wipes away
any snow that may exist, and then the
plow begins to run preparatory to seed
time, while in western Washington this
period comes a little later, the result of
prolonged moisture, though new vegeta
tion begins to come forth in March.
