DECEMBER SO, 18WJ
TxcoiLi. is in trouble now, for a new
cliief ol police has been appointed who
is carrying things with a high hand
and appears to be about as despotic as
the czar of Bussia, f or be arrests andi
holds prisoners several days without a
warrant it they happen to resemble a
criminal who is wanted anywhere, and
will not allow prisoners to send word
to friends. In fact he is s arbitrary
that they cannot tolerate him, and are
trying to have him removed-

Bombast, bluster, and spread-eagle,
lughfalntia oratory in the greatest
possible abundance i3 showered upon
an unoffending public in the prospec-J
tu of a weekly paper, to be published
ia a new town just being opened up
nsar Port Townsend. One would
think, to read the prospectus, that the
proprietors of the forthcoming sheet
expect that its advent will be one of
the greatest events in modern history,
and that with bated breath the world
will linger in suspense until they can
feast their intellect-bn the perusal of
the wondrous sheet, which will be the
incarnation of brilliant rhetoric and'
sublime oratorical eloquence. Want
of space alone prevents the copying of
the prospectus, but it will be kept on
file, and can bo read by any of our
citizens who think their brains can
stand the enormous tension required
for its perusal. Gome and see it
Suxdat evening just previous to his
departure for Portland, Mr. Mac
Naught, the English engineer, in con
versation with a representative of
Tax JLstortax, expressed his surprise
that such small tugs are used here in
towing large ships against tho strong
wind and tide they frequently have to
encounter. He states that in Liver
pool they use a tug of 1,000 horse
power, which, though quite large, has
so much room taken up by the mas
sive machinery, that aside from the
quarters for the crew, the registered
tonnage is only one and a quarter
tons. He thinks that larger and far
more powerful lugs, with good breadth
of beam, and which could cruise far
outside, are specially needed here.
He suggests that a largo tug with
twin screws could be used to advan
tage. He seemed surprised that the
merchants or business men did not
have a large tug in use, which could
probably bo purchased somewhere on
the coast, and would be found profitable.
UxEQUAn distribution of wealth is
often alluded to, but the extent of its
unevenness is probably not fully un
derstood. According to recent esti
mates it appears that the aggregate
wealth of only 13,000 persons in this
country is equal to 31,500,000,000, or
an average of 2,100,000 for each per
ron. Of that number, eighty men are
worth the 'total of 400,000,000, or an
average of 35,000,000 each. Coming
still higher up the list of the wealthy,
there are ten men worth 700,000,000,
or an average of 70,000,000 each.
Now for the crowning statement
Five of the richest men in the United
States own 525,000,000 of its wealth,
or an average or the enormous sum of
$150,000,000 each. "What a com
mentary! The wealth of these five
rceu divided among 52,500 men would
give them the snug little sum of 10,
000 each. But it all the wealth of tbo
land was divided pro rata among the
people, very likely in a few years it
would soon be found about as unequal
as it is at present
