Plan* for Two Brick Building* I>rawa —l.arga Immlgraltoa Shohosiisb, Jan. 9. —The new year dawned most auspiciously upon this city. The accumulated capital, tbe enlarged manufacturing capacity, and the plans for large and costly new buildings, within the present year, point to a remarkable growth for the future. Indeed, few towns on the Sound of the same size, are so ablaze with activity and improvement as is this. Two large brick buildings are already planned and the construction of the«e will soon begin. One is a large structure by L. Wilbur, to be used as a drug store. It will occupy the site of the present building, which wiii be moved to another locality. The new building will occupy one of the l*~t sites in the city- the corner lot which wa< recently purchased bv Mr. Wiibur from E. C. Ferguson. The second is projected by H. S. Burns, and will occupy the pres ent site of AM. Blacktnan s grocery and Ihe Gold Bar restaarant, which building will lie torn down or moved elsewhere. Among the immigrants at present in swift inflow many men of capital may be noticed, who are liberally in vesting in Snohomish real estate. The past month's real estate trans fers aggregate sio,ooo. In the oppor tunities afforded here for a large real estate business it is a marvel some one does not make it a specialty. The Hypotlienuae Kallroad. Ellensbnrgh Localizer. Work on the railroad from Ellens burgh to Port Eaton will begin early in the spring. This piece of road when built will bean important link in the cut-oil road that is to connect with the road being built from Cheney westward. The line in contemplation, when constructed, will make a saving of distance of from 90 to 100 milesi It will lie tbe road for passencer travel and the lightning express. The saving of time will tie some four hours in favor of the new route over the one via Pasco. Thon, too, Ihe line will traverse a good agri cultural country on theea.t side of the Columbia river nearly the entire dis tance. In time the hypothenuse road will lie one of great utility to the V I'. company. Next year will be a busy one in railroad construction in eastern Washington. Opening Ihe Yakima Iteservatlon. Yakima Farmer. A committee has |>een selected by the |«eople here to represent them at Washington city, in the matter of urg ing the opening to settlement of the Yakima Indian reservation, and thus placingon the market nearly a million acres of the finest land in the world, all of which borders on and will be locally tributary to this town. This is a matter which should have been at tended to a long time ago. A !»rw I'KKIL OK Til K SEA The Sweating of <oiod* In Iron Nhlp* The M otfttur* ('tiurirnaen. liondoa Kronomtbt.

Meiina Pinancier Jir. LiUinj" recent work on the geography of the Argentine Kepublic offers a ntis< of valuable statistical matter regarding that interesting country. The population two years ago « given at 3,003,670. and at the rate of immigration daring the last t*o rears it must to-day be Terr near ly SjwO.OOO. not a large number, it is true, but judged by results a most in dustrious and progress ive nation. The population of the City of Buenos Ay res is now very nearly 450,000. or some >u more than "thai of the City of Mexico. It ia an interesting fact that the City of Buenos Ayres should contain an eighth part of'the population of the entire republic, and it is well in this connection to rernemlwr that the country is largely agr'cultural. and so feri ile as to tie able to support the activities of a large urban population of merchants, man ufacturers. bankers and officials. The City of Mexico contains only a thir tieth part of the population of the na tion of which it is the political and commercial capital. Were this coun try proportionately as well populated with active producers as is the Argen tine Kepublic we might reasonably ex pect to find I,ooo.oooinhabitants in the chief city of the country, but, unfor tunately. Mexico i- apparently unable to attract immigration, a fact partly to be explained by the hostile attitude of a portion of the pre** to foreign immi gration unless it be made up of colo ni-ts of l.atin origin. So such senti ment prevails in either the Argentine Republic or in Chili, countries where a provincial prejudice against foreign ers no longer exists. And. '•peaking of immigration, it is interesting to note that from 1871 to 189fi inclusive there landed in the Ar gentine Republic 893.5M9 immigrants, while the emigration from thecountry dnring the >-anie time was only 259,303, there remaining consequently as per manent residents foreigners. Of late immigration into the country has l>een increasing rapidly, and for the tlr-t nine months of 'his vear the figures show an inflow of 105.155 colon ists. as against 77.51!) arrived during the same (>eriod of 1887. The Buenos Ayres Stawlard estimates the total im migration for 1888 at 175,000. The same journal, which is noted for its general accuracy and lack of desire to exaggerate matters, says: "Next year, according to advices from Italy, a still greater hegirawill take place from the Mediterranean: and what with the fortunes that Italian farmers will probably make this season out of wheat and the misery in Europe, ow ing to the failure of the crops, it is not at all improbable that the immigrants that will llock to this country in 1889 will exceed 350,000 in numbers." A quarter of a million of immi grants. largely industrious Italian farmers! This prediction should ar rest the attention of the press of this country anil compel newspaper writers candidly to examine into the causes which contribute to the growth of the Argentine Republic by foreign immi gration, while Mexico can hardly at tract a few thousand of colonists yearly. Let ihe journalists of the country reflect on the hostile attitude too manv of them assume toward* ex i-ting colonization companies and tneir too frequently exhibited dislike for foreigners. It will not do to place the hlame on the government; that will not explain why it is that there prevails to-day in Europe an impres sion that Mexico is not friendly to foreign immigrants. Nobody is com ing to dwell where he is given a cold and grudging welcome. lie will rather prefer to betake himself to more friendlv cjuarters. What immigration, welcomed, fos tered. worked for. has done for the en terprising Argentine Republic is to t>c seen in the wonderful ri-e in the value of landed property there since 1882, when it was es i mated by Miilliall at $527,000,000. and is *et to-day by I,at zina at 10.000.000, gold, a fi-e of 50 |>er cent In these figures the value of the national territories are not in cluded. In these vast domains we find a source of great wealth to the nation, for the *>2,000 square leagues of national land are, at a moderate valuation, worth f156.000.000, gold. Here is the foundation of the national credit as it is taken into calculation by European capitalist" and hankers. The area of cultivated land in the republic is placed by Mr. at 1,897,525 hectares, producing grain to the value of $*5,293,185. * • ITKMS OF OKNItKAL INTKKEST.
