On thk Northern Pacific.
The star of empire never did a better
thing than to take its way westward,
and especially over this road, as it has
dodged the blockade most effectually
and is really the whitest route to the
coast. Having paid full rates, I feel per
fectly free to say this. ""'
In the past three months I have pretty
well done the boom towns. It is a good
subject to study. For several years most
all kinds of stocks, especially horned
stocks, have failed to declare dividends.
Railroads especially, owing to close com-

petition and the great monumental folly
known as the interstate commerce law,
a legislative joke with whiskers on it, a
local gag to get votes and break up busi
ness, have made dividends small. What
we are pleased to call politics in America
is really the funniest and still the most
serious thing in the history of the repub
lic How best to be re-elected is the
great question of legislation, not how
best to deserve it. The country and the
state may go to grass, but the fall elec
tions must be looked out for.
I started out to say, however, that the
new northwest, and especially the Puget
sound country, is the great country.
liair a dozen cities are growing np like
asparagus in the moist London air of the
sound. The prosperity of one does not
hurt the prosperity of another. The more
business there is for the sound the better it
is for all. Nearly all the transcontinental
roads are already there. Five railwavs
at least are represented, and Asiatic trade
will soon turn that way. The Northern
Pacific, with its Wisconsin Central,
makes a direct connection with Chicago,
and so successfully competes with anv
other transcontinental road. The scenery
on euner roau is poor enough. I think.
and the corporation that banks on its
views is doing a poor business. A tun
nel especially is a disappointment. You
talk about the tunnel for days before you
get there, and when you arrive how sad
you are. The kerosene lamps smoke all
the way through, and the young lady
who sat near you before you got to the
tunnel goes over and sits in another seat
I think the tunnel is very much overesti
mated; also open to criticism at both
I learned with great sorrow this spring
that the hotel at Wallula had been
burned. I stopped there once and suf
fered all of one night. I remember es
pecially the other occupants of the room.
They had not registered, but they were
there. They were not transients and
they did not have to register. A friend
of mine who was a good man also
b topped there. He could not sleep, so he
put in the night killing insects. In the
morning the chambermaid found on the
wall; pinned up like a motto, these words
constructed of deceased bed bugs:
: THIS INDEED IS HELL :
He was n good man, but he was thor
oughly sincere. He was what you might
call an outspoken man, and said what
he thought at all times. He was an ec
centric man also. An Englishman once
asked him about our constitution. "I
am told," said he, "that God is not in
your constitution." "No," said this
plain man, "he is not in it." It was
slangy, but expressive.
By the way, theatrical managers and
lecture bureaus have some queer exper
iences also. The following is a true copy
of a letter sent to a manager this year,
the name alone being suppressed:

I have given a fictitious name and ad

without the consent of the editor.

Chance it may soon have to hear a person
who is quite prepossessing, having Veins
also with dark biue imported blood
into them. Mrs. Bowles has a great
field before her. She can lecture for
some of the young local societies who
have been so bitterly disappointed in
Holmes, Beecher and Ingersoll. Taking
her sweet, flute like voice in a shawl
strap, she can go from point to point,
emitting her lecture on "Society and
Common Sense" to a lost and undone
I would be glad to subscribe for a box,
poor as I am. If I could cause 4 notes
above Second C with Ease and Equality,
where only one had grown before, I
would not remain longer in obscurity.
I would soar above mediocrity and do
much good. She says it is by no means
a Dry or Prosy lecture, but conveys many
grand ideas to the lofty minds. She
might have trouble, however, in getting
enough lofty minds at some points to pay
her bills. Lofty minds do not always
attend a lecture of this kind, but fre
quently stay at home evenings nnd read
the county paper. If we could only
make an appeal to the Lofty Mind that
wonld jerk it from its lair on nights
when lectures all lit np with Fire and
Pathos are to lie heard, it would t"9 a
good thing for all.
In fancy 1 can now see Mrs. Bowles
dressing in the baggage car, as the train
is late, and aa she arranges her toilet be
hind the jK'anutter's tin trunk, softly
saying over her crisp little piece lit up
with lire and pathos. Later on I see her
trying to find the stage entrance to the
rink. It is locked. It always is locked.
After twenty-seven Scene Shifters and
Narcotic Snjies have gained entrance
they carefully lock the door, and while
quenching the fire with their salivary
surplus they read "Punko Pete, the Dire
Disemboweler of Dead Man's Gulch."
Hunting through the alley for the
door, she steps in a mortar bed with her
dress suit. I then hear her make a few
selections, causing 4 notes above second C
on third floor. When she goes in at last
I hear her heart fall as she sees a few
beetling browed men with thoir hats on.
who have come because they owned a
vacant saloon in which lithographs had
been inserted in exchange for tic kets.
Again I see her tossing on a hot pillow,
afraid to see the morning and the papers.
Finally she nerves herself and bnys them.
A sob arises in the throat of Mrs. Bowles
as she discovers that only one of the pa

know whose lithograph she is nsing."
Anon I see her nlso walking down the
street enjoying her bright new litho
graph, which carries a "cud" of tobacco
in each eye, or wears bright red whiskers
and a purple nose. Mrs. Bowles has a
bright and beautiful experience ahead of
her if she only knew it. Lofty Minds

as much in the elevating business, as
Sitting Bull, you might do well, but,
having done nothing worse than to as
sassinate the English language, a good

nights when two or three lofty minds
will be all you can scare up.

Col. Isaac Taylor continues his contrl
butions to the Peoria papers in attacks
upon the Hennepin canal project and
manifests a disposition to oppose
it Bimply because his pet scheme is not
so far advanced in public estimation as
the Hennepin canal. In a communica

The natural friends of Chicago in this
whole question, including the drainage
problem, are the friends of the great wa
terway in the valley of the Desplaines
and Illinois, I hardly think that Chicago
will better her condition and her pros
pect for favorable legislation that will be
requirel in the future by uniting with
Gen. Henderson in "chasing the rainbow"
by supporting his Hennepin project.
Act fairly and squarely with us, gentle,
men, and we will not forget you. You
will need our help again as you did when
your drainage bill was before the legisla
ture. If Gen. Henderson is to give us
some money to help us out from the pub
lic treasury, by all means let it be used
in setting modern dredges at work on the
Illinois, commencing at the mouth and
I think the true policy of friends of
river improvement is to antagonize Gen.
Henderson's Hennepin appropriation, in
the popular branch of congress, provided
the great waterway enterprise is not fully
provided for. No weak compromise now
will sr ve our measure from disaster. The
better time to lock the stable door is be
fore the horse is stolen.
Col. Taylor has shown his hand too
plainly in this matter and it is quite sur
prising indeed that a man who has served
on the canal commission of the state and
has been in a position to discern and to
appreciate the relative importance of the
various waterway projects in which the
state of Illinois is interested should per
mit personal bias to so warp his views
and arouse his antagonism to a measure
that does not look alone to the commer
cial welfare of Illinois, but to the entire
northwest. Tbe Hennepin is of para
mount importance lo all other canal ef
forts, and no man knows that fact better
in his heart than Col. Taylor.
