stated that bat one day in twrnty

«10)H THE U*E.
The Port Town-end Southern llail
road Company was incorporated in
July, ts*7, by several local and Cali
fornia capitalists, with a capital stock
of >3,(»">,<>». Its object is to . build a
railway line from Port Townsend
through Jefferson. Mason, Thornton,
< hehalis, Lewis, Cowlitz and Darke
counties in Washington Territory,
to some point on the Columbia
rlrer oppo-ite Portland. Oregon.
Soon after the organization, a corps
of surveyors waa pit into the field
to deterniine whether a railway tak
ing the genen! co cbor? nie;.-
tioned c >iild lie built with a reason
able expenditure of money. It wa»
claimed by inen who had navigated
llood,i canal, anl by others who
were famil sr w.th the topography of
the country in and about the head of
the canal, t-hat the mountains pre
sented engineering difficulties which,
tu overcome, would re [ lire an outlay
of money far in excels of results
reasonably to be expected from traffic
along the line. Indeed, this was the
general impression, and the project
ors of the enterprise were themselves
inclined to the -ame belief. Ho they
determined to learn by thorough sur
veys the exa t facts in the c.i-e.
The official reports of the engineers
showed that the t ipographical dlllicwl
ties had been witdly exaggerated, and
that the resources of the country trib
utary to the propo e l line had been
underestimated. While the officers
of the Port Towtisen ! Southern tym
pany do not i h >o-e to give to the pub
lic the knowle-dge gained at the cost of
preliminary survey, they are free t»
say that the line as laid out can lie
built at reasonable cost.
The wel!-settled opinion concerning
the impracticability of building a rail
road along the west shore of Hood's
< anal is merely an instance of pre
vailing lark of knotied|« on the «ab
jr-'t of railway engineering; and the
writer i* reminded how well-informed
men ;»re often mistaken in what they
tiftHdiy well -grounded vie*-*. In

idea of extending the line down the

There is to my mind not the least
doubt that this railroa : will be built.
Work may not commence this year
but sooner or later the west side of
Paget sound no*t have a railroad to
J develop the resources which are out of
reach of 'team craft. In Port Towr.-
I -end. as el-ewbere, tho-e who expect
j without eiertion of the : r oin to reap
a rich harvest from the railroads *eed,
are impatient for work to liegtn; while
I the conservative. paMic-spirited men
at the head of She erite-pri-e propose
to free their way clear to a finish be
fore making a start at construction.
Said Judge Kuhti. president of the
company: "Our tliww» are in far
Utter rhape than I imagined they
could be one year ago. ami our affair*
are quite -atisfactory, but you can't
expect to plant your com an«l gather
the harve«t Uie same week. It takes
time to build a railroad. In my judg
ment we wiil have a railroad from Port
Town-end to a crossing with the
Northern Pacific road, somewhere in
the neighborhood of ' 'hehaiis, by the
last day of D—;-ember, Isrfl. And we
will not stop at that crowing. We
will build right on to the Columbia
river."

In looking over the uovt- it wiil be
noted that «hile the amount of busi
ne-s done in all branches hits vastly
increa-ed, the miinl>er of vessels en
tering and clearing has slightly dimin
ished. This would seem a paradoxical
statement, but by turning to the
1 amount of the tonnage of the vessels
entering and clearing in 1 -sS the
«oughl-for explanation is found. It is
that small craft has lieen displaced by
larger vessels. Hencs the decrease in
the number Of vessels coming to the
Sound and the large increase in the
tonuage, exports and impoita.
A ido er analysis of Sound commerce
will lie of interest to many. Below i«

After several months of standing still,
during which time great improre

73 men in the works at I rondale: MO

30 men in the mine on Texada i«iand.
Since July 20 the steamer Fem.iale
which was chartered bv the company,
has been employed in trajs'-porting ore
from Texada to tbe works, ami up to

She wiil be kept regularly in this -er

be built a wharf f feet wide and S3>

the new kilns are already up and the
remainder wiil be erected without de

Each is 30 feet in diameter at the base
and 30 feet high. These tini-hed the

of baring to depend on contractors.
Charcoal iron i« worth about f,"» more

only a few weeks, when the prc-erit

has been prosperous from the start.
1 The daily output is 130,000 feet. One

which supply the mill give work
to about "<«) more men. The com

Port Haddock has one advantage

silver with it to pay for taking the cop

REACHING OFT FOR TRADE.
A SHOBT <rr TO FK MM TO REACH
TUK un ci Mnt.
Port Towns* r.d is going to secure a
part of the trade of the lower Sound
country, which now goes elsewhere.
This wiil be accomplished by creating
a new channel for navigation which
wiil put Port Town-end practically ¥>
mile-- nearer to the agricultural fields
of W!i idby island than any other
steamboat center on Puget sound. It
is proposed to cut a pas-age through
the narrowest part of the island. Re
cent investigation by private persons
has demonstrated that the plan is not
only feasible, but compared with the
advantages, inexpensive. The mouth
of llolroes harbor, in WhidWy island,
is only one miie and a half distant
from Admiralty inlet. On the west
aide of the island there is a deep
lagoon, running back more than half
a mile and fenced off from Puget
sound only by the surf beach. Tbe
distance from the east end of the
lagoon to Holme- harbor is about
three-fourths of a mile and the high
est point on the strip is less than
six icet above high tide in Puget
«ound. It is estimated by an engineer
that it will cost less than 16500 to
make a cut through the low neck deep
enough to be one foot below high tide
mark. Most of the soil is alluvial,
with a little gravel but no rocks. The
co-t of cutting a canal, say eight feet
deep, would not be excessive, but this
will not be nece-sary. The waters of
Holmes harbor are about one foot
higher than Admiralty inlet, and in a
short time the tide will cut a channel
of sufficient depth for steamboat navi
»i'ion. With tiiis cbiiitiei, •*>*!*
from Port TownsenJ can -teer almost
a straight cour-e to the inside of
Whidbv island, thus avoiding the
long, wind-about channfl southward,
then northward, and saving about
thirty miles. It happen? that only
tbe northern part of the i-land is un
der cultivation, anil Port Townsetul is
going for that, at the same time reach
ing out for some of the trade of the
mainland and north of the island.
A company will lie incorporated •■(•on
and raise money to put the cut
through.
BANKING INSTITUTIONS

successful banks which are amply able
to fill the objects of their existence.

the city, and shows a very healthy
state of trade. The First National

most important i the graded public

of our institution- 1 , and the public
sch<M>l- of Washington territory are
stil«rvise l by uien traine I in the lw*t
schools and in sympathy with the
most progres-ive ideas of common
school education. Port Townsend
public schools have !«-n contn.lied by
a generous and far-seeing board of edu
• ation. A few years ago.a new •< ii.x.l
b-iil was erected. The plans and
cost of the structure were based on the
future growth ot the city. To the
crumbling taipa- er of a >ear t .r o.gfo
the school building with three or four
unoccupied npart'i.ent was a u iree
of complaint. The pre-cnt growth of
the city, with an increase of -cbw.l

board in provi.ling for the future a« far
as pos-ible. The indications of the

■orsTais vtaw soa*ai cou-io*.
Aside from the public schools. Port
Town*mi It favored with a new insti
tation of higher edncatkn. After the
strong and apparently successful effort
of Allen Weir and others in securing
the M. E. universfty, there was much
disgust expressed at the way tbe con
ference had used Port Townsend. In
a measure the failure to secure the
university checked tl>e ardor of a few
friends of education. Howerer. it is
thought tout an independent college
can be sustained apart from any sect
arian support. The idea is not a new
one. yes new for the Pacific coast
region. In the central states the
greatest schools are tho*e of independ
ent support, and managed as private
enterprises. These schools do not
pretend to do the work of a university.
I<ut do pretend to furnish all the ele
ments of a practical collegiate educa
tion.
The Mountain View Normal College
will open its first term September 10.
under the management of Professor*
Browne A Ileinev. While it will
be entirely free from sectarianism,
and every pupil will have the utmost
liberty in his religious view-. the in
stitution makes one of its stump fea
ures that of moral r ilture. Moral
(■ecau.se moralitv pa\ s. ami is the in
spiration to higher tuanhoo 1. Classes
will tie sustained from the beginrimr
in the common branches, natural
sciences, mathematics and classics,
besides the detriments of mil- i •. art
short-hand and business. Pupils will
have tr<e privilege of selecting such
•tudirs as they ni.h to pursue, but
[ will always be advise*! to follow a
regular course of study. The purpose
in all exercises is to hare the pupil
work for the love of his work to study
for the pleasure found in a successful
recitation.
There has been quite a change in
the minds of many educator* concern
ins the old c-irrieulura of eollege* c*~
tabli-hed many years ajro. To rtttdjr
the ancient classics seven or eight
years is no longer deemed essential to
culture when so much English and
-cience is yet t > lie learned. The nor
mal l<eing a whool of choice, so far a«
studies go. a pupil may study as much
Latin and tireek as in other school*.
The idea, however, is to make all lines
of t-tudy auxiliary to English, aiid
trend toward a practical development
of mental power. The natural sci
ences here <,tu~u rant second to 110
other studied. Not years in learning
tec hnicalities of physics and cbem
istry. but the application of the simple
facts and laws of all science a* they
apply to the common things of life.
The faculty of the normal school will
consist of the following teachers:
Prof. F. J. lirowne, principal. Litera
ture and Pedagogy; I'rof. W. M. Hei
ney, associate principal. Sciences
and Mathematics; I'rof. \V. J. Rhode,
Ancieat and Modem Classic*; Mr. J.
F. Mclntvre, Shorthand; Mr. K L.
Bash, curator. Taxidermy. The equa
ble and healthful climate of Port
Townsend as well as beauty of loca
tion, make that city particularly de
sirable for e iuational purposes. A
tract of land in the most sightly part of
the city has been set apart for the in
stitution. which commands the view of
two snow-capped ranges of mountains,
the i-oaks Baker and Rainier, the
Strait-" of San Juan. Port Twrmad
l av, and many islands an if* inlets of
Puget sound. A lc.iilding is planned,
and wiU soon be underway. Students
t:nd b«im« in the be-t of families of
the city, and home intluences will be
placet! nlioi'.t the pupils from abroad.
The expenses of a student a. Port
Townsend are as low as at any school
in the coast country. The men inter
ested propose to work out sin- e-s for
this college by hard labor and honest
results.
In connection with the educational
features of Washington territory it Is
interesting to note what a colossal
mistake the last Methodist conference
made, so far as finances are com erned,
in declining to accept the bonus of
