The body waa found at 4 p m. near the Blalock farm, two miles east of town, in a rail road eut, outside the track. The throat was so deeply ent and backed that even the vertebra- were severed by some sharp, heavy instru ment, po-«iM.V a hatchet, ax or broad ax.

And I re iu.-t this to say, that if my wife or children take sick, some one will suffer for it. Sow mind that. I lease it with TOO." Col. (fade said that was the same old story. He had been protecting against this imposition upon the peo ple of the Fourth ward for months, and be now agreed with the proposi tion that it must ►top. He now moved that the street commissioner be in structed to order the dumping stopped in the Fourth ward, and that the health and police committee be in structed to find a place outside the city limit- for the dump. J. B. Houghton safcl the gentleman knew be was advocating something that thecommittee could not do. •'I sm doing nothing of the kind," retorted Col. Steele, "and that is the gentleman who said the Fourth ward would serve a* a dumping ground for five years." "I never said any such thing," said Houghton. • I say here in this council that you did," paid fctaele. Collins called up the action of the last meeting. He undersiood that the council ha<i ordered it stopped at that time. The cler>- looked U[> the record and found that'he committee to which it had oeen referred, had recommend ed that a man be placed there to see that it lie stopped, but the report bad been only "received and filed." and not adopted. J. H Houghton said this thing should )>• stopped, but it could not be •topped in a uay, and re'erred again to the Third ward having had the damp within its borders for yeari with out complaining. Steele's motion was about to be put, when Caughran moved as an amend ment that Steele t>e added for this pur pose. Steele said that ton much work for the good health and prosperity of the city couid not be put upon him, and he "would go with the committee with out any mo'ion to that effect. He said he would go with the committee to-night or to-morn w morning, and suggested that the street commissioner give notice that no dumping should be permitted in the Fourth ward alter noon to-morrow. Action was then taken to that effect. During all this nauseous discussion, a galaxy of ladies sat in the lobby, there to natch the action in the mat ter of the license fot " The Murphv " saloon which was to come up on a re port from the committee. A petition numerouslv signed was presented in behalf of the application for license. J. H. Houghton called it up after a while, and I.illis moved that the pe tition to- referred to the committee having it in charge. Steele said he had signed a report as a member of that committee, and he thought the report should lie handed in at once. Collin-, handed the report, saying he had been waiting disposition of the other petition. The report of the committee did not favor granting the license. Horsfail. l.illis and Zinram spoke in favor of granting the licence, raying Uiev did not !>elicve in discriminating against the First ward property-owners in the matter of erecting their build ings. Steele said he thought the city had the right to regulate such matters jast the same a* thev might the small pox or mad dog* running at large, and he was against the license. J. H. Houghton read the law passed by the last legislature, clea ly giving such right to the city council. The motion that the application be denied was i>a>sed bv a vote of five to three, Caughran, Collins, J. B. and J. H. Houghton and Steele voting ay, and Horsfail, Lillis and Zinrain voting no. Action on the ordinance requiring that saloons close at midnight and re main c'osed until 5 a. m. was po-t --poned until next meeting.

Co. will start on a new time table, and it is so arranged that it looks aa if gotten up with the especial idea in view of injuring Port Townsend. Under 'his new and in genious arrangement of Capt. Clancy's steamers they will leave Seattle at 1 o'clock in the morning, arriving here about 430 Returning from Victoria thev leave here again for Seattle at 12:30 m A -tranger coming to tbe city mu«t rise when everybody desires most to sleep. This hour is so early that he mu-t necessariiv seek a hotel an i go to bed again. With the utmost diligence he cannot secure more than two hours for business, if be wishes to return up Sound tbe -ami- day, and if he is not through his business, al though another hour might finish it, he is compelled to wait 24 hours longer. There is a universal protest among the merchants and everybody else at this contemplated change. It is felt that tbe convenience of the port-of entry is entirely nil in the considera tion i that affect the O. R. t N. Co. in regula ing tbeir Sound business, al though she is an importantcontributor to the exchequer of that company. Not the least of the annoyances this new time table wi'l inaugurate will be the delay of one day in receiving the Posrr-1 xtel li o rm-ui. SHOULD BE STOrriD. Port Townsend can boast of one of the best opera houses on the Sound. It al-o secures some of the be-t theat rical attractions going. So far. in the language of the street, there is no "kick coming." Kut, in c»nnection with tbe opera house there are some wrongs which cry aloud for remedy. The principal one is the gang of hood lum* who congregite in the rear of the ball an l make life a burden to tbe rest of the audience with hide oii* screeches, cat-calls, unseemly ■tamping and everv kind of imagin able noi-e whenever there is a lulf in in tbe performance. As niuht draws near the question that agitates the merchant, the hotel keeper and every other business man depending on' electricity for light is. will it go? Two-thirds of the time it does not go. WHATCOM COUNTY NEWS. The Statua of the Half Doaen Big Enterprise* Now Afoot. WHATCOM. Nov. 17.—The general im pres-ion prevails here that the North ern Pauihc railroad is silently behind the Nelson BenneC scheme to build a railroad from the Skagit iron and coal fields to Bellinsham bay. The veins of coal being prospected by Mr. Cornwall's company are very promising, so much so that a railroad will be built to them, on the Nooksack river, in the early spring. Tbe Cornwall company al-o expect to push their railroad eastward through the Cascade mountains, and many believe some arrangement has been made to meet the Manitoba iine. whii-b by this route will find an outlet on Bellingham bay. Senator Canfield is here looking af ter railroad matters. He savs the rails have !>een ordered and the contract for constructing the railroad to the American boundary from New West minister will soon be let. Then in the spring the connection will be made from the boundary to Whatcom, then south to Seattle. It is safe to say that the large saw mill to lie erected at Hchome Dy the Cornwall Co. will be in running "order within six months at furthest. Mr. Cornwall says it will cut 100,000 feet of lumber in ten hours. The contract for its construction will be let in Cal ifornia this week, on the return to fSan Francisco o' Messrs.

Casphalt Will Fraaefc ■ia laittatarj Saiwawa TU* Mttrm lac— He Like* Seattle. "Yes, they pat the doctor of divin ity at the wrong end of my name." hnmorou-Iy remarked Kev. D. D. Campbell, tbe new pastor of tbe First M. E. church, corner Third and Ma rion streets, at the parsonage last night. He and his pleasant-faced wife were sharing the care of their four diminutive children for the evening, and seemed grateful for an opportu nity to sit down after a hard day's work fixing up toeir new abode, "get ting settled, you know." Mr. Campbell has been appointed to the pastorate of the First M. E. church :by Bishop Ninde. from the Kansas conference. He arrived here from ! Minneapolis, Kas., Friday night,com | ing by steamer from Tacoma, and was introduced to his new sphere of use fulness yesterday morning. If he \ does not object to it he may be called a handsome man. wi h very dark hair ' and mustache, a beard which he has ! let grow for the winter, and a pair of very expressive dark Wue eyes. There is an air of intellectuality about him which will soon commend him to his Seattle flock. In physique he ia rather slight, but not too much so, appar ently. He was born 3-i years ago in Sharpsburg, Pa. then a suburb of Pittsburgh. He received the degree of A. M. from the Mount I'niou col lege, Stark county, Ohio, spent a year in Massachusetts, in charge of the Westport high school. and after that was chaplain of the hvgienic institute at Dansviile, J>. Y. tor three years he held the pastorate of the First M. E. church at Balina. Kan., and subse quently occupied the pulpit tempor arily at Minneapolis in the same state. He mighthave remained atSalina two more years had the terms of minis terial " service been lengthened from ihree to five years in time —an action taken recently by the conference. Mr. Campbell' had hoped that Dr. Pomerov would fill the pulpit this Sunday, so he could have enjoyed one Sunday of rest, but be failed to ar range "for this in time, and Dr. Pome roy has already been announced to the contrary. "His subject this morn ing will he, *' The trial of Abraham's faith." In the evening be will attend the Moody meeting. Considering that one of bis babies is ill with the croup, an*l that he has been suffering the fa tigue of travelling, he goes to work in a way and with a will that merits commendation. " Yes, I like Seattle," he said as a parting salute, " I like the bustle and activity here." WILL TRY TO EJECT HIM. A Real Estate Suit Involving Squatter* Right*. A very interesting real estate case in volving the rights of landlord and ten ant, will come up befcre Justico Jones next Tuesday. This is the suit for rent and ejectment brought by W. H. Johnson against Henry Simmons. Mr. Johnson purchased the lot on the Northwest corner of West and Stewart last spring from Turner, Engel & Lewis, agents for Mr. Dennv, and according to his attorneys, Messrs. Peterson & Faben, Mr. Simmons "jumped" tbe land and put up two frame buildings on it. The suit is brought under sections 2057 and 205S of the code of Washington. By these sections a landlord, or original posses sor, can bring a suit for rent against tbe squatter and demand his vacation of the premises. The squatter, or rather, "jumper," as tbe street term is, must give up tbe prop erty on demand. The plaintiff claims SSO per month rental from Oct. 1. Several fine points are expected to be raised when the lawyers argue their respective sides of "the controversy. Lots in this vicinity have sold for be tween S6OOO and s7uoo, and Mr. Peter son believes that the building of tbe Denny hotel on Second street in that vicinity, and the opening of We-t street from Stewart south will enhance the value of the property consider ably over that figure. HER 81-EEO TO BE INCREASED. Repair* to the Htearaer Washington Marine Ways Needed. As was stated in a firmer issue of the Porr-I.NTKLUQEScaa, the steamer Washington has been laid up for re pairs, her route l>etween this city and Whatcom being taken by the Eliza Anderson, the City of Qtiincy making three trips weekly between this port and La Conner. Extensive repairs will be made on the Washington at the ways, Port Ludlow, there lieing no fa cilities in this city to do the work. Her present hull will be re placed by a much lighter one. ihe boiler* enlarged and tlie present cylinders bored out about one-quarter of an inch. This will increase th« .-peed of Uie steamer at lea*t one-fifth, and when* she is again placed on her old route, which will be in the early spring, there will not be a swifter craft on the Sound. In this connection it. is fi ting to draw attention to the fact that Seattle has no dry dock nor anv of the reqiurements for the refitting or repairing of ship-bottom*. It is expected, however, that in the near future the tjueen City will in this, as she has already done in other de partments, keep ahead of the proces sion. A marine way has been under consideration for -ome time past, and the sooner Seattle acquire* thi* indi >|iensable adjunct to a pott so famous as her.-, the i*tter will it speak :or the enterprise of her citizen*.

The higbe-t estimates put the women's vote at 1500, the lowest 1300; so 1400 mav be considered nearly the correct figures. Deducting these from the total vote, would make the male vot ing population 4199. or in round num bers 4200. The increase in the male adult population in two year.', there fore, is a little over 2000 aad to these must be added the very large immi gration since May 1, who were not en titled to vote. It is a fair estimate tbat 1000 men over 21 years of ace have moved into Seattle since the summer began, and p'ohaWy as many more in King county out-ideof Seattle.

Robert RnaseQ who died in this city November 9 was born September 14. 13M, at Ashland, Ohio, where he tired with his psmt*. Mr. and Sirs. 8. W. Russell. with whom he moved to Au barn, Indiana, where be went to school for eight years. The family then consisted of 8. W. Russell and wife Mrs. Tanner, tbeelJe»t daughter. Thos. S. Russell. who died in ISi.', Mr. John Thomas. R*bt. Russell. Mrs. C. C. Terry, -Monro Rus sell, Martha Rossell, and Mrs. J. J. Crow. The family left Indiana for tbe West, and arrived on Puget Sound in lXtfand located at Alki point. Robert Russell, then Is vears of a«re, separated from the family at Snake river, to assist in driving stock to the Colombia river, and did not join them again till I«S3. On his journey from snake river to the Columbia he suffered great hardships and pri vation*. and for four days sub sisted only on the most scanty fare. When he arrived on the Sound he engaged in logging and get ting out piles and square timber for transportation. This was before the davs of saw mills. His father took up a ranch on White river, and after working there for three vears. clearing land, he came to Seattle at the age of 21. and went into tbe draying busi ness. which he followed successfully till the day of his death. On August 29. I*S>. he married Jo anna M. Welch, who survives him. As a result of that union three children were horn, two of whom are still liv ing. Robert E. Russell, ased I*. and Ellen Alice Russell, aged 14. When the Indian war broke out he enlisted as a volunteer, ami rendered valuable service to the early settlers. He was frequently complimented for his hraverv, and was made an, officer of the volunteers. He was a quiet, unassuming man with a retiring dis position. and never sought otflrUl preferment, but in tSßfi, against his wishes he was unanimously elected a member of the city council from the Second ward, and he fulfilled the duties devolving upon him honestly, faithfully and well. He could have been re-elected, but he de clined a re-comination, feeling that be had performed his duty as a citizen. While he looked like a strong, healthy man. he was subject to bilious attacks, and when he was threatened with that <lre;id disease, typhoid fever, he at tempted to it off. thinking it was only one of those unpleasant bilious attacks. He fought it off until he could stand the strain no longer and was in bed but two weeks previous to his deaih. He hope l the trouble would soon be over, and many of his most intimate friends did not know he was seriously ill until the paper contained the sad announcement of his death. Robert Russell was a good wan and a good citizen, and sprung from good stock. He was a double second cousin of W. C. Ralston, the San Francisco millionaire, but never presumed on his relation-hip to anybody. He was a moral, sober man, and «a< fond of his family and friends. He was also fond of'hunting. and what time he took from his business he de voted to the chase. It is pertinent to publish an estimate of Robert Russell from two of his con temporaries, given in their own lan guage. Mr. Henry L. Yesler said: He was a young fellow when he came. He was a tirst-rate fellow from the start. I first knew him in 1853. when he came to Alti point, and worked in the mill there. I noticed he was industrious and sober. He never got into difficulty of any kind. He volunteered during the Indian war, and rendered valuable services to the settlers. He then worked for his father on White River farm, and then came to Seattle and went into the draying business. He succeeded Tho*. Mercer and !<• V.Wyckoffasdrayman. He had two horses'and a wagon, and did all the hauling for the community. He was a fair, square, honest man I had a great deal of dealing with him, and we never had a dispute He made no great pretentions, but was kind hearted, and always ready to assist the needy, and tho»e who ap pealed to hi m for aid. He wa- thor oughly patriotic, and always believed that Seattle was de-tined to become a great city. He was a lover of the law and wanted to «ee the law of the land lived up to. To sum him up, I would say he was a good, hone-t, upright, honorable citizen, and I never knew him to take the wrong side of any question. Mr. W. 11. Surber said : I have known Ko«rt Russell since 1559. In 1061 he and I ba < bed to- f ether on C. C. Terry's ranch on the hiwamish. In the fall we worked in the harve-t field, and in the winter we hiuited deer and elk together. He was a tood shot and a good jovial fellow, who always did hi* part of the work about camp, and never did any grum bling. In the summer of 1862 we worked together on a pile-driver for C.ipt. S. U. Libbv at It-alady. We have hunted together more or le*« every vear since I got acquainted with him 29 years ago. The la«t hunt we had together was three weeks before he died. Thi* was on McAleer'a lake, in Snohomish county. We got two deer. He killed ' one and I killed one. The last time 1 wa» with him. he was just the same as be *a« the first time. There was never any change in him He hail a good, cneerful ais|«Mtion. I never knew him to do a dishonorable act in hi* life, or take an advantage of a fellow man. It was nut nece-sarv to make a contract with him. If I had work in his line to do, I siniply told him what I wanted, and he did it. and hi< price was always under what I expected to pay He was a good man. a good husband, a good lather and a good citizen. | Robert Kussell de l just as he had pa**ed on life's highway "the stone that marks the h ghest joint and when the 'hadows were beginning to fall toward the east." He belonged to the race of courageous men, now rapidly passing away, who. outstripping the visions of Fenimore Copper, marched to the Pacific eoa-t and being unable 'to go further, turned around and I founded an empire. He was j one of the few men yet living who properly have a -igßl to be classed a« pioneers, for he came when only brave men d;.red come; t«- fore reirular route* of communica tion bad !«en establi-bed, and before the treacherous Indian had b«en su!>- dued. He did more than one man's share in the work of est.ihli*hing a high civilisation on the*e shore* and laying the foundations broad and deep for an ideal government of the people, by the people, for the people. The work of the-e early pioneers will probably not be fullv appreciated un til lone after the last one of them has laid down the burden of life, and as time rolls on. and Wash ington become* an empire, the names ot those men who braved privation and danger will shine forth brig- tlv a* heroes. Robert Kussell did not court fame. He led an humble life yet among the Puget Sound pioneers, his name will ever have an honored f>lace for his record is c:e in and he oved his fellow man. En. L. T.
