THE PEOfLX'B PARTY COMMITTEE
.s'EATttK, Oct. !».
To the Members of the People's
Party:— In reply to the notice pu!-
li-hc<i in to-day'- Pi«i-hTru!iiijri:»
by a number of the People*' party
candidates legarding their difficulty
with some member* ot the People's
party committee, the undersigned offer
Ihe following explann ion :
There i* no truth whatever in tLe
statement that the two members as
sailed by Ihe candidate- follow a rule
or-ruin t olicv, and that any such i> 1-
i,-y of their*lia- canned this trouble.
Tiie true inwnnlne-s of th* contliet ts
of a different nature It emanates
from the fact that the e indidate- sign
ing ye-'rrdiy"* notice intend t-> "run"
the entire campaign themselves, com
pletely ignoring the under-igned mem
bers of tic countv cirnimitt -e, thereby
evincing an insulting bo-tilitv, whi o
evident!*' -pring- from fie fa- t that
neither of us voted in the late conven
tion vita the victorious majority.
We oifi-re i tl-.e irti n 1* ot the major
ity candidate* m the county rent
niittee atl possible advantages, allow
ing them to select their own campaign
enmn.i;tee-meml>er-. and t<> manage
the campaign. We insi-ted though,
upon tietug informed of the d ing* of
the campaign eon mittee. upon it
sulsndination t • the cunty com
mittee, an-1 e-pe- tally de luted to have
the printing of the ti l et- in the
hand- of the campaign committee,
1* ins' aware that the strong lleroo
cratic Inclination- prevailing with
-vimc of the candidates made it our
particular duty to - e that the ex
pre,*- intentions of our convention is
n >t foiled in favor of any of «>ur own
candidates, or of those of anv other
party.

Harrington A Smith'.-. Hatfield. and
j tbe City dork. SO cent* per ton rows- ■
uremetit h charge-'.; while on the
Seattle Warebou-e Company's wharf j
no wharfage is leviei on goods * hipped -
j from the city. The firm is perfectly 1
«ati«f:ed that the pre-ent charges on :
receipt* should continue, tmt consider:
it against the busines- intcre-ts of the
city that charge* on -hipments should j
be made in addition. time tbe margin |

"Take fl-jur and feed, for example."
say they, "the levies made by the
wharfin er. at the present rate, almost
deltars Seattle from supplying outly
ing points in competition with
other trade center*. Tbe ef
fect of excessive tha-ges in
this respect, Ls to drive ; t-n ling
pnreha-er-t in Seattle to other mar
kets— Portland and elsewhere. With
a freight rate from Portland at 25c
per 1<«) lb«, the receiver ha* no
sharf due« levied if the good* come
by the O. It. A X. Co.; and some of
our customer*, after vigorously pro
te-ting against paving what the'v con
sider an iwpwltion, have t" r aened
to get their goods froln that (siint.
We c tnanot Maml the strain of pay
ing wharfage on incoming and out
going goods. The former is borne by
u« and tbe latter must be horno bv
otr 1 i-touiers. We -hip al»i it j>~jo
ton- Ivr month froiu the different
wharves, and on this our customer- t
are ol> iged to pay 1000 wharfage, in
addition t» freight. On Harrington A: 1
Smith - wharf, if a man goe- on with
a handtrock twenty times a day, he
will !>e 1 .-barged each time a lee of
of i*> cent-. Tlii- i* sorely un
reri o:iat>le. San Francisco, Port and
and Ticoma. as f.ir a- we know,
charge nothing on goods shipped. It
i< di e,cult to augge-t a remedy; but.
with the growing latere t« of tfie city,
there might Is- a more satisfactory ad
justment and regulation of thi« im- j
p<irt nit matter." The firm consider-1
that bv payment of dues on incoming !
g,.H» is ami by charging steameis -o
much per month for lying at the
wharf*, a sufficient sum can be re
alize I to afford fair profits to dock I
oaner-
N. t'hil! erg A Son -tate l that a team
I* charged 25 cent- every tirue it goes
on Harrington ,V Smith's wharf.
I D po ind i on-ignment or more, and
that no reduction U made for a n:.m-
Irr of vi it- during the day. "We
consider that the charges no* made
teti l to diminish the Volume of bu-i
--ness and bring manv complaints fro.a
our patron*. The board of trade ha*
-uhstdiz -d the steamer lola to carry
freight to Vaehon inland from ti.e
S -attle Warebou e Company's wha-.f.
without duet, and the bti-iness ha» in
erea-ed from if** to i**> Jier cell*.
Something ought to be done to remedy
this dereet i.i our distributing >y -
tern."
Toklas. Singt rman A Co. informed
the repo,ter that complalt ts are com
ing in from every quarter liei au-r of
the wharfage charged on fool- con
signed to outside customer-, ' itnly
the other day a small ta eof rubber
i»ln>i'-i was -ent to Sr.ohomish, on
which the freight wa- i'i eeats and the
w harta:-e 30i*e:it«. 'Sen i n- no more
gooils hy steamer, was the immediate
re.]iie»t," 'a- our prolits are small
enough already.' The whole-ale trade
in Seattle i- lieing crippled,in our opin
ion, bv the un tea-on aide charges
made, and the city front ought to lie
under the control of the cit*' govern
ment, a- is the cate in San Francisco
and New York."
K. lad# A Co. thought J5 cents per
ton measurement on good* -hipped
ought to Ik- sufficient to compensate
dock owner*. a* higher rate- are «»| -

Ifirrt.i.K.ESCTtß reporter. ye-t?rday
afterno-Mi. and wa» asked: "What
have you to say about the charge on
which you were arre-ted?"
• Nothing, except that I know no
thing al*>iit it. I don't know whether
or not I was in town that night. I
went over to Tacoma on the Olympian
about that time, and want to'-ee tbe
two young fellow- I went over aith to
Rnd out whe'her il was before or after
the Occidental burglary."
"Don't you reuiemf-er hearing or
reading of the burglarv Isrfore you left
.-esttle?"
"No, sir."
"What 4i> you know about the man
who (rives hi- name a* Charle« Martin,
who wa? arre-ted in Portfand <-harged
with heing connected with the burg

"Nothing at al). I never saw him
ami never heard of him."
"You mu>t I* pretty well known TO

rim* you were released from
jail last June?"
"Have i«en in Seatt'e mo-t of the

rheuraati-m since July 4. and have
not done anything. I ran prove this,
although Wooiery says my ian.e:ie-s
is a ruse."
■\ on ought to he able to prove it if

"Well, I didn't have anv. I went

"What re.i-on have you to believe
that -hea wa- implicated in the Ocei

porter of Mr. Woolery, last evening.
"The be-t in the world," replied Mr.

it. I am in iNiswiott of «ntsi lent
fact- to send liim to the p nitentiarv,
a- v u will see at the preliminary ex

was committed by John Shea, whom
I arrested in Tueotua, and Charles
Martin, who i< r.ow undpr arrest in
Portland. Martin had taken the
jewelry to Oregon to di- p ise of it. an I
£lu*n remained on the Sound with his

watt third person interested in the
burglarv, or. at least, who bad a guilty
