Port Townseud is the first port on en
tering Pnget sound from the Pacific
ocean. The city Is beautifully located,
and at this time ogers perhap3 the best
opportunity for the investor of any in
America, sa it3 prospects are fully equal
to thoee of any other American city,
Vrhile its real estate quotations, taMng
all thia into consideration, are more rea
sonable. M8L0,r '
THE LANDLORD'S TRICK.
The average rainfall, which is really
the beto noir of the Puciite coast, is leas
rirulcnt perhaps at Towtiaend tbun else
where. While Dnnunt j has 20 inches,
Whatcom 28. Kamihh 9. riwinomi .h :J2,
Stilliguamifch 40 and Snohomish G5,
Port Townsend has but 10. Possibly
the names hstvi 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. Take Squeamish, for instance, '
and East Peritonitis, and Bomballa. and
Sweethomibh, and Upper Steilacoommn
brella, each of which hs from Go to 1G3 '
inches of mean rainfall and nett moibt- i
ure dnring the j-ear, eichiwve of dews.
Snow and hail rarely fall at Port Town- '
send and onie yertrs there are none at
all, and in summer the K'-ts a cool breeze
up the straits of San Ju.:n do Fnou from
the ocean which inike3 Townsend much
cooler in summer-tfm.1 any of the other
somid cities. Port Townsend. an one ap
proaches it, reminds one or, if there are
more than one. it may remind the whole
party of Havre, Franco, Europe. Tho
beautiful and peaceful harbor, together
with the greaa terraced town, rising rap
idly from tho rip Lair, sea.5, like Undine
or Niobe or Mrs. James Brown Potter,
fresh from the bath it is a beautiful
Eight. 1 shall never forget how beauti
ful Havre looked to me on the morning
of my arrival there. 1 had ridden from
Southampton, which is located in Eng
land, to Havre (sometimes pronounced
Harv by cultivated Americans from tho
Little Big Horn inouutainb). 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 :ind depopulated land lubber at a
woaderlul rate. The emerald hills of
Law bel Frawngs. as I heard a scholarly
man from Pumpkin Duttes call it, ap
peared before- me and rose along with
other bric-a-brac in the nnjht sunlight
as our good ship Hoboken plowed the
waves. I stood forward of the after
hatch and abaft the purloin deck as ray
whole iast 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.
Though 1 was landing in n strango
country whose language 1 could not
speak and had but $ l.So in American
money and a letter of credit which 1 did
not know what to do with, 1 was coming
to land blessed land. In an hour's time,
with returning hunger, I had devastated
a French garden, and a frightened gar
Bouing had told me in broken English,
"with great borrow, how he had a brother
who looked also like me. and he also
died a few yeais ago 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 tilings 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 there that with beautiful
courtesy the Credit Lyounaise cashier
cashed my letter, simply requesting me
to remove my hat by way of identifica
tion, (jracing on my massive skull for
an instant, and placing his car to it for s
moment in order to hear me think a lit
tle, ho turned to his escritoire and hand
ed me out a hatful of shining Napo
leons. But Townsend has the advantage of
Havre in two respects. First, she has
in new in two different directions a
chain of beautiful show capped moun
tains which just completes the picture,
and, second, she is less overrun with for
eigners than Havre. You hear the id
ioinatio American tongue almost con
stantly at Port Towufceud.
1 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 or the thread being
drawn out through the coat so as to look
like a stray fragment, which some solicit
ous friend generally trwe to pick off.
After unreeling forty or fifty yards of it
he decides amid much merry laughter
that it is a joke, and ho buys large quan
tities of alcoholic btimulants for the
party, who fill the air with peal after
peal of more merry Ijaghter.
But the landlord was not wholly suc
cessful. Sevn or eignt tims, after
waiting pafiantly for bis chance, ho suo
reded in getting various people to pick
-is thread off. but "the yard upon yard
sat should have followed it did not
me. Finally, it leakod out that sn
i t.iar humorist was carefully catting the
f irsad evory time go as to sell the land
lord, and Aen "mine host," as I bsard
rv mri&gbkA i
j 2? drt3
mm called once in a paper, tnrew away
the- spool and casting aslda tdl reserve
told each and every one to nominate his
favorito method of quenching bis thirst,
and so ths day passed pleasantly and all
too soon with thia merry band.
Washington is to -be more greatly bene
fited by her admission to tho Union, per
haps, than any other of the new states. I
will state my reasons. Ever since the or
ganization of otsr 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 'tnd the still more
pamrul calamity known as compulsory
psrspiration. To live in a territory at
such a time has ever meant to he, to do
and to suffer. The fostering care of con
gress and the erecutive was and is con
tinually side tracked on the way, 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 frcjic, or a nerv
ous Anarchist strolling ovp-t Satan's coun
try seat with hia 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 states.
But now Washington is a full Hedged,
grown up member of the iamily, and,
wearing suspenders, the young state does
not ask, but requests, what, as a voteless,
vcicelebs 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 its attendant blessings. Many mill
ions may be profitably spent there by tho
government in harbor improvements and
public buildings, to tay nothing of sub
stantial assistance and encouragement for
agricultnre.lumbering and mining, which
would yield early and rich results.
Port Townsend is protected from for
eign foes by means of a fort, the name
of which lias escaped my memory. This
fort is situated across an arm or bay of
the main tound proper, bo that tho 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 police can do to keep
them sometimes from being rude and
saucy to the garrison and his wife.
The fort c mmands the entrance to
the harbor 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 m Port Townsend feels
perfectly secure, except when the forest
fires are raging. Once a forest fire burned
down on" panel of tho fortifications, and
hostile cows got in. it is said, and ate up
the supilic Friendly Indians got in
once while the garrifon was taking a
and sto! his clothes. And still you
will find people all over this country who
think that t'le Indian may be humanized
and Christianized, if properly treated.
The United States, ho 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 m the immediate neighborhood
of Port Townsend So here in this rich
agricultural, mineral and I timbering
region, where two railroads are coming
iji this KiiiSii-ifr. connecting Townsend
with Porili.i.l ami the east: where the
shipping entries are only equaled as to
number by tho-e of New York, and where i
more money and immigration are daily
going in than elsewhere in the United
States, the country is not even surveyed,
because it is so fur away from whero the
American eagle does bin incubating.
1 used to think that Silcott was a very
man and coarse man to take the wages
or sm and go away to !ana la with them,
but the more I think of it the moro
lenient I feel toward him.
Everybody has heard of the cheapness
of Jhir:j on the coast, and ever since my
bo iuoi I have been impressed with this
fact, and yet I was but poorly prepared
for the a notations I met with at the
Poodle Dog. in San Francisco. It is a
good eating place and I went there as the
guest of Hi". Samuel Post Davis, of Car
son, a CGU!!oic-our, an epicure and a bon
vivant from the San Francisco Annex,
known to the eat as Nevada.
HE. DAVIS IS FIRED.
We had blue points, snails, shrimps,
beetles, crook necked clams, terrapin,
roasts, removes, side issues, bon mots,
asparagub, fried mush, with New Orleans
molasses; bosom of lamb, with catnip
sauce; brisket cf mooso, sweetbreads,
mussois, relishes, mustard pie. Vermont
maple sirup, mackerel, pie plant pie, pis
tache. ice cream, fortissimo cheese, cafe
noir, Garcia cigar, etc.. etc.. and I was a
little anxious, eo far as possible, to know
what the bill was, for Mr. Davis is not
extravagant or foolish in these matters.
I got a plimpee at the check, which was
thirty-five cents each, and it was with
great difficulty that I remained in my
I said: "Of course they will take us for
a drive also, will they not, if they charge
us thirty-five cents for this little bite
"No," said Mr. Davis, "they say they
cannot afford it. Food, of course, and
wine are quite chesp here, and labor is
not expensive, but horses and carriages
come high. You can live well here and
not attract attention, but if yon hire or
own a carriage it proves that you are
thoroughly reckless about money mat
ters."' I watched him pay the seventy cents,
tip the waiter and o out, and then 1
said, "Sern, do you mean to say that you
got off with lees than a dollar for that
"Oh, yes. I thought they rather socked
it to me toda. GeneraUy they tfcrowin
t&& I i
a canvas back duck ana a terrapin steas
at that price, but today they are croaa. 1
suppose it!s wash day probably, and so
we had to take kind of a picked up din
ner." After that I took a friand from Uew
York to tho Poodle Dog and ordered tho
same thing exactly and paid $IS for it.
I learned then that Mr. Bavia did that
way to advertise the lorr price of living
in San Francisco. Pre met several men
since who had dined wish 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
month 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
make3 countless thousands mourn.
On the 1st of January Port Townsend
had 0,000 people, but in the previous
year had spent 200,000 in street im
provements alone, eay $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 the smell of gas
leaks, and so whole acres of paving are
torn up in order that this fatal thirst
may be satisfied.
Port Townsend is divided into two
great, grand divisions, viz., upper and
lower town. These ara connected by
means of a zigzag plank walk or switch
back, which extends down the face of
the hill in a f orward-and-back-cross-over-and-balance-with-opposite-gcnt
engineering, which is quite novel, and
yet enables tho pedestrian to arrive there
just the same.
The citizens of Port Townsend have,
for years, been at the mercy of steamboat
companies for freight and the rates have
been high, but this spring the Port
Townsend and Southern railroad broke
ground and 3,000 men began to connect
Townsend with the Portland terminus
of tho great transcontinental roads.
Hardly had this been done when tho
gentlemanly, genial and urbane Union
Pacific secured terminal facilities, and
began to strike out for the growing city.
This mean3 that the other roads will
follow, and this quiet town, modestly
seeking to do what was right, yet seldom
tooting her own horn, has the door open
for her to future prosperity and com
Speaking of Samuel Davis a moment
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 thoy 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 tbtit might lie in
the path of honest success. Over and
over again this thought was dressed in
new terai3 and in earnest language, this
idea of eternal perseverance being the
price of victory. Day and night it dwelt
in his memory. Sleeping or waking,
"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 tho
street and, seeing the lodge door open and
members standing about the entrance, he
stepped around into an alley and having
rehearsed tho signals and passwords for
the current quarter, he boldly stepped
to the portcullis and having pounded
on tho door according to directions on
outside of wrapper, lu poked his Grecian
beak through tho little martin box lead
ing into the vestibule and ejaculated:
' 'Messopotamia ! !"
An angry man rose to his feet insida
and said, smothering his rising wrath
by means of the fried onions which had
formed a part of his supper:
"Do you take this for a beau ref actory
or what? You better go rih away from
here now. If you want to get a messo
potamia, why don't you go where they
keep such things?"
"I don't want. anything to eat," said
Samuel Davis. "I am not hungry, you
old baritone ass. I gave you the pass
word of our order and I desire to enter.
Do you know your business or have your
think works slipped a cog?"
"That's no password," say3 tho other
man, "and them's no kind of knocks.
You cannot gain admittance." Ho then
closed down the little wicket, and Mr.
Davis could hear him and his breath en
gaged in a deadly hand to liaud conflict
Samuel Post Davis had been taught in
that very lodge room the lesson of perse
verance, and so he would not give up.
Suddenly the idea flashed upon his mind
that this was merely done to test hira.
He would rhow them the kind of stuff he
was made of. Sc he pried op?n the wicket
with an old dirk which h had and 6ent
in another order for a messopotamia.
Tho jrr.ard now came out and caught
Mr. Davis by thn collar and bsgan to
eject him. The ejectment was only suc
cessful in a measure, however, resulting
in tho ejectment of the guard, after
which Mr. Davis, with teeth marks on
his ear and a bloody bugle, strode inside
the first door. Ke told the inside guard
w-hat annoying delays he had submitted
to, and was just inthe act of giving the
second prtssword, viz., "Tusn, rusnr

guard, who was a very powerful man.
Still detormined to carry out the teach

room, Mr. Davis made a break for the
door again jist as the Most Worthy

ho sought. "I seek an entrance," said

"We extract the following from tire'iast
issue of The Arizona Kicker:
Not Yet. In reply to "Anxious In
quirer," of Philadelphia, we would say
that we hold no political or appointiv6
office whatever. Right here it would be
very appropriate for us to add that we
want nothing of the sort, and that if the
president would tender us a cabinet posi
tion we should refuse it. We ought to
6ay so, but we don't propose to. "We
have been ready for the last two years
to take most anything we could get our
hands on in the way of an office, but the
opportunity hasn't dropped on our side
of the fence. "While we are the editor,
publisher and proprietor of a great
weekly newspaper, and while we con
duct a job office, newspaper, grocery,
saddlery, hardware, butcher shop, mil
linery store, feed store and signal station
all under one roof, there is still an ach
ing void. While our cotemporaries
may play hypocrite and liar, we see no
occasion to conceal our real feelings. "We
want office of some kind, and we'll get it

His Head Is Level. Last "Wednes
day night, when returning home from a
call at the two story adobe of the "Widow
Glassfield's, and just as we were passing
the ruins of old Fort Todd, we were
fired upon three times in rapid succes
sion. We didn't stop to inqniro the gen
tleman's name, nor to ask the occasion
of his hilarity, but covered the mile of
sandy road leading into town in somo
tliing like five minutes. Next morning
we went down to tho ruins to see what
we could see, and it didn't cost us three
minutes' time to discover who fired those
shots. There were the footprints of a
bowleggod man a man so bowl egged
that no one could mistake his identity.
We returned to town and set out to hunt
up Professor Monckton, who has been
playing an accordion in somo of the first
class saloons, and who was "gone" on
the widow without our knowledge. We
had somo music in our hip pocket for his
private ear, but a brief search disolosed
the fact that he had skipped the town.

tracks, and had at once bolted into the

brought matters to a climax by encour
