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 Bheet 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 gronnd
easily worked without blasting. The
chief advantage of a fresh water harbor
for ships, of course, is that the teredo or
ihip 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 ironcl.uls especially
would become less porous.
The teredo is one of a genus of ace
phalous, testaceous xnoTlnsks that bore
and penetrate the bottoms of ships and
other submersed wood. The shin worm
belongs to a family of conchiferous or
lamelli branchiates. They are not.
strictly speaking, worms at all, as they
have the true molluscan organization
and the elongation of the body is simply
due to tlie excessive protraction back
ward of the si phonal 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, I
hope he will not be at all backward
about coming to me 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 proceed, and a word or
two further regarding this little acepha
lous, testaceous mollusk, which patiently
goes to work to sink a great shin, mav
not be entirely out of place at this time,
for 1 am not radically opposed to facts
in the abstract. It is only the abnormal,
protracted and chronic use of facts that
I deprecate and deplore.
The family of Teredinidxe, to which
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
The teredo does not care for social rec
ognition, but devotes its life to this great
task. With no appetite for club life, yet
ignoring its marital relations and negli
gent of domestic responsibilities, the tere
do gives up its whole existence to mis
taken and ill advised efforts to damage
the commerce of the world.
In this family the mantle is well devel
oped, its lobes united except at the pedal
opening, reflected behind over the valves
of the shell and developed above into lobe
like expansions, which are reflected over
the hinges of the shell and serve to keep
thevalvesin place. The gills are large and
extend far into the siphonal portion. The
mouth is provided with palpi, and it has
a sweet breath like that of a clover fed
cow. The foot is subcylindrical and suck
erlike, with a foliaceous margin, moder
ately protractive and well supplied with
nerves. The shell is composed of two
equal valves of peculiar form."
The family includes the Teredo, the
Kansitora, the Kuphess, the Calobates,
the Xylotrya.the Dperotus and the Lyro
dus, all of whom are highly connected.
On entering the navy the Teredo family's
motto is "Ever onward and upward," and
though at times he is a bore, the teredo
retains bis hold on society like a retired
pugilist who has married welL
The Teredo Navalis, as we call him in
scientific circles, does his boring and de
structive work by means of the armature
of the valves already described, and yet
Professor E. Percival Wright very truth
fully says that the ship worm is no arma
ture at this business.
The Bexes of the Teredo family are un
equally divided, there being about twenty
males to one female. The latter lays its
eggs in the months of June and July, in
large quantities. Sea sickness never in
terferes with her plans.
To remove ship worms bathe the bot
tom of the ship every morning in hot
borax water, rinse thoroughly in tepid,
distilled water, wipe dry with a coarse
crash towel, and then smear thoroughly
with creosote oiL This should be kept
up for at least a fortnight, after which it
will be found that the worms are so
stupefied that they may be readily re
moved from their holes by means of a
In preparing the above interesting de
scription of the Teredo, I am indebted

Seattle cut 100,000,000 feet of lumber
last year and had to import a lot more
for its own use, and yet it costs $100 an
acre to clear off and destroy 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 six feet
from the ground. Many others near it
were about as large.
Most every stranger thinks the snow
must have been very deep in Washington
in winter because the stumps are so high,
' some of th'-ni being cut off eight and ten
feet above the ground, but that is not so.
I liTnx vr-- enrlv that this yine 18 ex
tremely pitcEy at theTiase or butt, so
much so as to be practically worthless,
so the lumlierman cuts a notch above this
objectionable point and inserting a spring
board with iron or steel points to it, he
mounts this little scaffold and cuts off the
tree at a poiut which would huve been
two or three feet above bis head if he had
stood on the ground.
To test thecourtesy of the woodsmen
Mr. Dearborn and I, one afternoon while
driving through the forest, assumed the
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 whola 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 tho elevated railway gates and
other thought ganglia of New York.
Seattle is called the Phoenix city. This
is because she was consumed by fire last
Bummer and is now almost entirely re
built. The Phoenix was a fabled bird
which could rehabilitate itself after hav
ing been consumed by fire, and was even
more bright and cheerf uWf terward than
before. Even tho scorched feathers of
the Phoenix, it is said, did not smell dis
agreeably. Phoenixes are now very
scarce, and a setting of Pha-nix e.ags
this spring would bring a fancy price.
The day is not very distant when, like
the buffalo, tho last phoenix bird will
have disappeared from our shores. Seat
tle is a jKrt of entry, and her land office
shows ni re entries tlian any other in the
United States, it is said.
Unman life is quite safe now in Seat
tle, the sanguinary Chinook having be
come quite tame ami docile. 1 entered
the cage of one of them while there and
remained twentv minutes. The Chinook
is cssentiallv a water fowl and is most at
home in a dugout. When he lands hi
loses his dignity, for he is kmn-kkneed
and li.-ts a gait like a mnd turtle with a
stone bruise. Before one knee can p:iss
the other it has to have a written per
mit. The squaws are industrious to a
degree, bringing in to town every morn
ing large liouquets of dew laden clams,
which are sold at a nominal price to the
people of Seattle.
The churches are numerous and well
bnilt. every denomination K-ing repre
sented. The Methodist, Baptist and
Lutheran churches have services in three
languages, so that each may attend and
put up his K'tition 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 the liooks 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, the reformed reln-l. the
negro and the Chinaman lie down to-'
get her, and the cosmopolitan children
of the great glol, under gentle skies,
toil on together and prosper together.

Seattle has no horse ears. The talent
ed, versatile and ambidexterous bobtail
car driver can never i nter there, and the
pleasing aroma of the car stables d.x s
not cling to the good clothes of the p-is-senger
when he gets off. Two fine lines
of electric cars, with four systems of
cable cars which scoot np the hills and
across the city, give a styleof rapid tran
sit which would put many an older city
to the blush.
Along tin- water front lots were locat
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 joles. That was not all:

these proprietors of aquatic lots claimed
as riparian owners the margin of deep
water which accrued to the hinds, sub
merged though they were, and some day
the keen eyed prophet sees here the Back
bay of Seattle, tilled in, and the business
portion of the city, where now the tide
rises almost as high aa the prices, placed
upon these humid bnilding sites. That
is not all. Tho buildings, one by one,
are wading out toward the deep water,
and factories, ware houses and residences,
standing on tall and stately piles, creep
farther and farther out as the weeks roll
by. Instead of tho missionary and the
wood chfpjKr, the pile driver bccouios
the pioncrr at this iioict. and tho crus
tacean, instead of the red brother, gath
ers np his household utensils and blinks
away to seek other haunts.
Wages are good, work h plenty, and
canvas stores are giving place to hand
some brick and stone buildings. One

The New Klertrlr MyMtrm.
We have spoken in the Jounud in re
gard to the new electric system adopted
by CapU nail, of the Fort Clark road.
We received a letter from Mr. Pennock,
tbe patentee.this morning.in which he says
that be has sold tbe right to Sacramento,
Cal., and the first cars will run about
Oct. 1st. Tbe system is attracting tbe
attention of tbe street car men all over
the country. Supt. Holmes, of Chicago,
says that it is tbe biggest enterprise on
earth. The mayor of Chester, Pa., writes
them that the citizens of that place will
not have tbe overhead wire, and
that tboy have tested all the stor
age batteries in use, and tbey are
a failure. Now they are going to
adopt tbe Pennock system. To equip an
overhead system for 100 trains will cost
$700,000. Tbe Pennock system can do
the same for $200,000. While the over
head system loses from twenty per cent
to fifty per cent of power between the
dynamo and tbe car ax'es, the Pennock
system loses nothing, and the current is
harmless. Tbe Ft. Clark road is to be
made a test road and tr it is a success
here it will come into general use. Mr.
Pen Dock is looking forward with antici
pation to the motor which be puts on the
Ft. Clark line, which is to be placed next
month. Peoria Journal.

A PRETTY MESS.
The 91 ay or of Sloltae aa Cilef af Pa-
I lee Orders Certain Oatlea f Ills
t'eree Which They Kefnxe to Cam
ply With, and Why.
They have got into a peculiar predica
ment in Moliae over a conflict of author
ity as between the mayor as t hief of po
lice, by virtue of his office ani the mem
bers of his force who refuse to obey his
orders because the ordinances of the city
will not sustain bis position. Mayor
We6sel was greatly agitated yesterday
when he inquired of Officer Geisberger
why he had not arrested the engineer of
the Q- switch engineer as he ( the mayor)
had instructed him to do. The officer
told him that the ordinance in the case
would not allow him to do so. Tbe com
plaint by the mayor against the engineer
came about thusly : Tuesday evening a
street crossing was blockaded by cars for
twenty minutes or more and tr.e mayor
saw the obstructing train standing there.
It seems that the engineer had left a train
of cars standing across the street, making
it impossible for any one to ptiss, and had
run his engine up into the ens I end of the
city. The mayor then reporied to police
headquarters and demanded of Geisberger
that he arrest the man and take bim off
his engine as soon as he returned.
Now. the Republican says.tie ordinance
in the case is such as provides that if the
railroad company allows any of its engi
neers or conductors to leave their trains
standing on tbe cro sings of the city, paid
agent and tbe company mutt forfeit the
sum of not less than $10 or more than
This amount, tLe police nay, must be
recovered under a civil suit, md tbe com
pany and agent violating the ordinance
must receive a summons to appear in
five days, llecce they did rot feel justi
fled in taking tbe engineer from bis en
gine. However, they applied to Magis
trate Kerns for a warrant for tbe arrest
of tbe man. but tbe magistrate took a
similar view of the case and would not
grant it. City Attorney Oakleaf also
says the engineer cannot be taken from
bis engine for such a breach of tiie or
tlmanee. It is not a misdemeanor. Af
ter discussing the ordinance, tbe mayor
said be would see Lawyer Jaeks-m, and
investigate tbe matter, and if under this
ordinance, men cannot be Arrested for
violation, it will be so amended they can.
Tbe state law in tbe math r is much the
same as the city. It is expected ihU a
new ordinance will lie drawn up at tbe
next council meeting.
