! Tto "Kty" City of «M Sow* ' TW Port Towo taad Soathoro R. R. Sua to Coning Everybody Proo- Wo effort baa mr been mad* to hoem Port Townsend. White B—llia, Tacoma and other citiea hare been landing out thouaanda of dollara worth «( advertising matter broadcaat over the country, the port-o(-eotry haa never expended a dime in thia direc tion. Yet, within two years, it haa -doubled in population, grown from a conservative little town of about I.SOO ta a prosperous city of nearly 4,000 people. What lesson does this teach f It means that the natural and inherent advantages of oar charming city have asserted themselves, broke through the crust of oblivion under the oner «aa load of lack of enterprise, and at tracted to our midst a good share of Mm people and capital who are hieing then to the sun-kissed shores of Pu git Sound. Moreover, "a change haa come over the spirit of her dream." Her citi ssns are up In arms and resolved to make the Key City what nature so yialnly decreed her to be—a great -commercial and manufacturing city. A syndicate of gentlemen got together • tew months ago, put up 11000 each, and sent surveyors out to examine the feasibility of a railroad connecting Quimper peninaula with the Columbia river. The moat favorable report wil received, to wit: That the highest grade such a road would have to en counter would be 80 feet. The Port Townsend Southern Railroad waa then organ Unit, and the work begun of get ting a subsidy and right of way from 4he citixen*. To-day this subsidy is the largest ever offered a railroad, SBBB acres, speaking volumes for the generous spirit of the people, and ex hibiting the enterprise and perspicuity that is bound to win in the race for graatnets. Meeting* are held weekly to further the intercut of the road, ami work la •or* to be begun on it within * very few month*, perchance weeks. Handsome business blocks are be ing erected, hundreds i>f private resi dences are going up, several large manufacturing enterprises have recent ly started up, and the ring of the ham mer and sounds of industry are heard on every vide, the peans of peace and plenty that are sweeter than the Fongs of triumph in war, and tell of the teeming thousands who will wend their way to the Key City, and btiild .Another Frisco at the gateway of I'uget Hound.
