Port Townsend is the flint port on en
tering Pnget sound from the Pacifio
ocean. The city is beautifully located,
and at this time offers perhaps the best
opportunity for the investor of any in
America, as its prospects are f ally equal
to those of any other American city,
while its real estate quotations, taking
all this into consideration, are more rea
sonable. THE LANDLORD 8 TRICK.
The average rainfall, which is really
the bete noir of the Pacific coast, is less
virulent perhnps at Townsend than else
where. While Dnnaness lias 20 inches.
Whatcom 2. Snniish 80, Swinomish 32,
Stilliguaraish 40 and Snohomish 65,
Port Townsend has but 16. Possibly
the names have something to do with it,
for these towns with Indian names, some
of them are cursed with a rainfall which
would drive old Mr. Mcintosh out of the
country. Talce Squeamish, for instance,
and East Peritonitis, and Bomballa, and
Sweethoniinh, and Upper Steilacoomnm
brella, each of which has from 65 to 165
inches of mean rainf cJl and nett moist
ure during the year, exclusive of dews.
Snow and hail rarely fall at Port Town
send and 6ome years there are none at
all, and in summer she gets a cool breeze
up the straits of San J nan de Fuca from
the ocean which makes Townsend much
cooler in summer than any of the other
sound cities. Port Townsend, as one ap
proaches it, reminds one or, if there are
more than one, it may remind the whole
party of Havre, France, Europe. The
beautiful and peaceful harbor, together
with the green terraced town, rising rap
idly from the rippling seas, like Undine
or Niobe or Mrs. James Brown Potter,
fresh from the bath it is a beautiful
sight. I shall never forget how beauti
ful Havre looked to m on the mornin.
of my arrival there. I had ridden from
Southampton, which is located in Eng
land, to Havre (sometimes pronounced
Harv by cultivated Americans from the
Little Big Horn mountains). It takes
eight long and nauseating hours to make
this trip via a sort of Fort Lee ferryboat
which gives the choppy channel a chance
to assess the already depleted and de-.
spoiled and depopulated land lubber at a
wonderful rate. The emerald hills of
Law bel Frawngs, as I heard a scholarly
man from Pumpkin Buttes call it, ap
peared before me and rose along with
other bric-a-brac in the bright sunlight
as our good ship Hoboken plowed the
waves. I stood forward of the after
hatch and abaft the purloin deck as my
whole past life came up before me.
Tears chased themselves and others down
my fluffy cheeks and fell with a hot
spatter on the deck. But they were
tears of joy.
Thongh I was landing in a strange
country whose language I could not
speak and had but $1.85 in American
money and a letter of credit which I did
not know what to do with, I was coming
to land blessed land. In an hour's time,
with returning hunger, I had devastated
a French garden, and a frightened gar
soning hod told me in broken English,
with great sorrow, how he had a brother
who looked also like me, and he also
died a few years apo he and his tape
worm together. They died in each
other's arms, he said, and one grave now
holds them both. He then brought me
some more things to eat, and with a
funny little bottle of mucilage added
another supplement to the bill.
Havre has a green place in my mem
ory and a warm, lower berth in my
heart. 'Twas thero that with beautiful
courtesy the Credit Lyonnaise cashier
cashed my letter, simply requesting me
to remove my hat by way of identifica
tion. Gazing on my massive skull for
an instant, and placing his ear to it for a
moment in order to he:r me think a lit
t!e. he turned to his escritoire and hand
ed me out a hatful of shining Napo
But Townsend has the advantage of
Havre in two respects. First, she has
in view in two different directions a
chain of beautiful snow capped moun
tains which just completes the picture,
and, second, she is less overrun with for
eigners than Havre. You hear the id
iomatic American tonfne almost con
stantly at Port Townsend.
I was there on All Fools' day, as it is
. called. The proprietor of the hotel was
working the cheerful little thread game,
which, as the reader knows, consists in
concealing in the coat pocket a spool of
white thread, the end ot the thread being
drawn out through the coat so as to look
like a stray fragment, which some solicit
ous friend generally tries to pick off.
After unreeling forty or fifty yards of it
he decides amid much merry laughter
that it is a joke, and he buys large quan
tities of alcoholic stimulants for the
party, who fill the air with peal after
peal of more merry laughter.
But the landlord was not wholly suc
cessful. Seven or eight times, after
waiting patiently for his chance, he suc
ceeded in getting various people to pick
this thread off, but the yard upon yard
that should have followed it did not
come. Finally, it leaked out that an
other humorist was carefully cutting the
- thread every time so as to sell the land
lord, and then "mine host," as I heard
him called qnce in a paper, Jthrew away
the spool and casting aside all reserve
told each and every one to nominate his
favorite method of quenching his thirst,
and so the day passed pleasantly and all
too soon with this merry band.
Washington is to lm more greatly bene
fited by her admission to the Union, per
haps, than any other of the new states. I
will state my reasons. Ever since the or
ganization of our republican form of gov
ernment in this country the doubtful
state has been the recipient of all federal
favors, and to live in a doubtful state
and have a little influence have meant
immunity from hunger and the still more
painful calamity known as compulsory
perspiration. To live in a territory at
inch' a time has ever "meant to be, id do
and to suffer. The fostering care of con
gress and the executive was and is con
tinually Bide tracked on the wy, and
while waiting for orders is generally
broken into and rifled by the ever hun
gry and abnormally thirsty doubtful
state. A poor boy at a frolic, or a nerv
ous Anarchist strolling over Satan's coun
try seat with his overcoat pockets full of
percussion bombs, is happy compared
with a little soiled nosed territory look
ing hungrily through the pickets of Co
lumbia's apartment house yard, where
the great tournament for cold victuals is
going on among the October Btates.
But now Washington is a full fledged,
grown up member of the family, and,
wearing suspenders, the young state does
not ask, but requests, what, as a voteless,
voiceless territory, she could not even
petition for with any comfort. Port Town
send will be especially benefited, I be
lieve, and at once, by the new statehood
and ita attendant blessings.' Many mill
ions may be profitably spent there by the
"government in harbor improvements and
public buildings, to say nothing of sub
stantial assistance and encouragement for
agricultural timbering and mining.which
would yield early and rich results.
Port Townsend is protected from for
eign fes by means of a fort, the name
of which has escaped my memory. This
fortls situated across an arm V or bay of
the main sound proper, so that the rude
street boys of the public schools of Port
Townsend cannot pick on the troops.
The school boys of Townsend are not bad
boys at all, but they are full of spirits,
and it is all the ioliee can do to keep
them sometimes from teing rude and
saury to the garrison and his wife.
The fort commands the entrance to
the harlwr and an armed foe could not
enter under the guns of this fortification
without stirring up ill feeling, unless he
entered after sundown, at which time
the garrison seeks his couch.
Most every one in Port Townsend feels
perfectly secure, except when the forest
fires are raging. Once a forest fire burned
down one panel of the fortifications, and
hostile cows got in, it is said, and ate Up
the supplies. Friendly Indians got in
once while the garrison was taking a
bath and stole his clothes. And still you
will find people all over this country who
think that the Indian may be humanized
and Christianized, if properly treated.
The United States, so far, has not sur
veyed the country, it is said, the width
of a township back from the water front
in the counties of Jefferson and Clallam,
except in tho immediate neighborhood
of Port Townsend. So here in this rich
agricultural, mineral and lumbering
region, where two railroads are coming
in this summer, connecting Townsend
with Portland and the east; where the
shipping entries are only equaled as to
number by those of New York, and where
more money and immigration are daily
going in than elsewhere in the United
Stitt es, the country is not even sun-eyed,
because it is so far away from where the
American eagle does his incubating.
I used to think that Silcott was a very
mean and coarse man to take the wages
of sin and go away to Canada with thi-ni,
but the more I think of it the more
lenient I feel toward him.
Everybody has heard of the cheapness
of living on the coast, and ever since my
boyhood I have been impressed with this
fact, and yet I was but poorly prerwred
for the quotations I met with at the
Poodle Dog, in San Francisco. It is a
good eating place and I went there as the
guest of Mr. Samuel Post Davis, of Car
son, a connoisseur, an epicure and a bon
vivant from the San Francisco Annex,
known to the east as Nevada.
MR. DAVIS 13 FUSED.
We had blue points, snails, shrimps,
beetles, crook necked clams, terrapin,
roasts, removes, side issues, bon mots,
asparagus, fried mush, with New Orleans
molasses; bosom of lamb, with catnip
sauce; brisket of moose, sweetbreads,
mussels, relishes, mustard pie, Vermont
maple sirup, mackerel, pie plant pie, pis
tache, ice cream, fortissimo cheese, cafe
noir, Garcia cigars, etc. , etc., and I was a
little anxious, so far as possible, to know
what the bill was, for Mr. Davis is not
extravagant or foolish in these matters.
I got a glimpse at the check, which was
thirty-five cents each, and it was with
great difficulty that I remained in my
1 6aid: "Of course they will take us for
a drive also, will they not, if they charge
us thirty-five cents for tliis little bite
"No," said Mr. Davis, "they say they
cannot afford it. Food, of course, and
wine are quite cheap here, and labor is
not expensive, but horses and carriages
come high. You can live well here and
not attract attention, but if you hire or
own a carriage it proves tlmt you are
thoroughly reckless about money mat
ters." I watched him jiay tho seventy cents,
tip the waiter and go out, and then I
said, "Sam, do you mean to say that yon
got off with less than a dollar for that
"Oh, yes. I thought they rather socked
it to me today. Generally they throw in
a canvas back duck and a terrapin steak
at that price, but today they are cross. I
suppose it's wash day probably, and so
we had to take kind of a picked up din
ner." After that I took a friend from New
York to the Poodle Dog and ordered the
same thing exactly and paid $18 for it.
I learned then that Mr. Davis did that
way to advertise the low price of living
in San Francisco. I've met several men
since who had dined with Mr. Davis un
der similar circumstances. He arranges
it with the proprietor'Somehow in ad
vance, but I do not think it is any way
to do. I would no more do that by a
friend of mine than I would expect my
right hand to cleave to the roof of my
mouth if I did do it also, from a clear
sky. . That's the way I feel about it ex
actly. It shakes man's faith in man and
makes countless thousands mourn.
On tho 1st of January Port Townsend
had 6,000 peqple, but in the previous
year had spent $200,000 in street im
provements alone, say $34 per capita.
This was done also in such a way as to
avoid tearing up a block every time the
police wanted to smell of a gas leak. In
some of the larger cities the police have
a morbid desire for toe smell of gas
leaks, and so whole acres of pa ving a.re
torn up in order thai Ibis fatal thirst
may be satisfied.
Port Townsend is divided ink' two
great, grand divisions, viz., upper and
lower town. These are connected by
means of a zigzag plank walk or sritch
back, which extends down the fc ice of
the hill in a forward-and-back-cross -over-and-balance-with-opposite-gent
engineering, which is quite, nove. , and
yet enables the pedestrian to arrive there
just the same.
The citizens of Port Townsend have,
for years, been at the mercy of steal a boat
companies for freight and the rate have
been high, but this spring the Port
Townsend and Southern railroad broke
ground and 8,000 men began to cc nnect
Townsend with the Portland terninus
of the great transcontinental ixtads.
Hardly had this been done when the
gentlemanly,' genial and urbane Union
Pacific secured terminal facilities, and
begun to strike out for the growing city.
This means that the other road) will
follow, and this quiet town, molestly
seeking to do what was right, yet s ;ldom
tooting her own horn, has the door open
for her to future prosperity and com
Speaking of Samuel Davis a uncut
ago reminds me that some years ago he
joined the Knights of Pythias. He looks
very wildly and strangely beautiful in
the uniform of the knights, and little
children gladly go and conceal them
selves when they see him coming. And
yet he is a kind hearted man and would
never bite a child unless irritated or
Mr. Davis was greatly impressed at
his initiation by the chief officer's earn
est charge to ever throughout his life
overcome all obstacles that might lie in
the path of honest success. Ov-rand
over again this thought was dress d in
new terms and in earnest languags, this
idea of eternal perseverance beirg the
price of victory. Day and night it dwelt
in his memory. Sleeping or w iking,
"perseverance, perseverance," sang in
his breast and stirred him up to do and
to dare in the great struggle for success.
. One evening he strolled down the
street and, seeing the lodge door op -n and
members standing about the entrai ice, he
stepped around into an alley and bavin
rehearsed the signals and passwonls for
the current quarter, he boldly slepped
to the portcullis and having pounded
on the door according to directions' on
outside of wrapper, he poked his G recian
beak through the little martin box lead
ing into the vestibule and ejaculated:
"Messopotamia ! V
An angry man rose to his feet inside
and said, smothering his rising wrath
by means of the fried onions which had
formed a part of his supper:
"Do yon take this for a bean reftctory
or what? Yon better go right away from
here now. If yon want to get a inesso
potamia, why don't you go whers they
keep such things?"
I don't want anything to eat " Said
Samuel Davis. "I am not hungrr, you
old baritone ass. I gave yon tho pass
word of our order and I desire to enter,
Do yon know your business or have your
think works slipped a cog?"
"That's no password," says the other
man, "and them's no kind of k locks.
You cannot gain admittance." Hi then
closed down the little wicket, an 1 Mr,
Davis could hear him and his breath en
gaged in a deadly hand to hand conflict
Samuel Post Davis had been taught in
that very lodge room the lesson of perse
verance, and so he would not gi'e up,
Suddenly the idea flashed upon hie mind
that this was merely done to test him.
He would show them the kind of s-uff he
was made of. So he pried open the cricket
with an old dirk which he had and sent
in another order for a messopotamia.
The guard now came out and caught
Mr. Davis by the collar and bej an to
eject him. The ejectment was only suc
cessful in a measure, however, res tilting
in the ejectment of the guard, after
which Mr. Davis, with teeth marks on
his ear and a bloody bugle, strode inside
the first door. He told the inside guard
what annoying delays he had submitted
to, and was just in the act of giving the
second password, viz., "Tush, tush,"
when he was thrown out by the inside
guard, who was a very powerful man.
Still determined to carry out the teach
ings of perseverance taught in the lodge
room, Mr. Davis made a break fir the
door again just as the Most Worthy
Breath Tester came out and asked what
he sought. "I seek an entrance," said
Mr. Davis, "to this lodge of Knif hts of
Pythias, of which I am a member in good
"You are in error," said the Most Noble
Breath Tester softly. "This is a lodge
of the Independent Order of Red Men.
We meet here on Thursdays an 1 the
K. P.'s on Fridays. Try it to-morrow
night, and yonr lwautiful. large, rect
angular Perseverance will doc bt less
catch the eye of the speaker."
Mr. Davis then went home, thought
fully, via the drug store, and his boudoir
smells of arnica and gargling oil even
unto this day.
