The lee Plant Arrive*--l'ni<*n City,
on Hood's Canal.
PORTTOWVSKNI*, Jan. 31.- The much
talked of ice plant arrived yesterday
upon tbe steam scbooner Signal, ft
was expected two weeks ago. Tbe
proprietors are new men from Wood
land, Cal., and have purchased this
new and complete vl&nt for $24,000. It
ha« a capacity of 3D tons per day, and
will thus be able to furnish all the ice
required by the fishing schooners that
make this city their headquarters.
Formerly they had to go direct either
toTacomaor Seattle for immediate
shipment, and many times found that
there was no ice 'at either of these
places, thus making it a very unsafe
venture. Now they can have no more
fear upon that score, and accordingly
tbe whole fleet will again begin their
cruises after the speckled and luscious
halibut and cod.
Much excitement, was caused here
yesterday by the rumer that tbe Port
Townsend Southern railroad syndi
cate had purchased .the townsite and
some 1500 acres in and around I'nion
City, at the head of Hood's canal,
and many in town who own property
in that vicinity were very much
pleased, as it means an increase in
values|in that location. T'nion City is
from its location a very fine place'for
a division station, as it is about <©
miles from this city, and, situated as
it is upon the water, has facilities for
shipping, also a commanding location
for the establishing of several branch
roads, one east into Kitsap county
and one west into Mason-county. It
is undoubtedly the intention of the
railroad projectors to make thjs one
of their principal stations along the
route, and th-y show considerable
conlidence in of the road
by their continual purchases along the
line.

Heal estate is changing hands at

Our two sawmills are unable to sup

night and day.
One of our greatest needs at the

Messrs. Hall A i'arker are raiting

■arise Expired.
PoituTO, Jan. 31.— -A special ses
sion of the I'nited States circuit court
was called thi- afternoon for the pur
pose of disposing of some matters per
taining to the ~ celebrated Holladav
case. The time which the court al
lowed Joe Holladay and ' ieerge Weid
ier to redeem the property will expire
at 12 o'clock to-night. A strong effort
has been made to raise the money
necessary to do this, but ineffectually.
Their attorney made a motion and
argots! the same before Judge Deady
this afternoon, asking for an extension
of 'JO days of the time in which to>re
deem the estate. This the judge re
fused to grant, so if the money Is not
obtained by 12 o'clock to-night the
property will remain in possession of
Nelson Bennett? and Larrabee Bros.
There is no possibility of the money
beinfc raised.

POKTHSD, Jan. 31.—William Ash-1
ton, who came here from Spokane
Falls, .returned home as the
Clice did not seem to want Sim. He
t his address here, so that if hi«
presence should ever be desired in |
connection with the Csnningham i
murder he could be communicated
with, but it is not likely that he will'
be sent for. A.*bton is about one of
the last men whom anyone would sus- ■
pect of being capable of committing a
crime, to say nothing of beine an ac- j
cessory to murder.

PORTLAND, Jan. 31,—Thomas Mc-
Grath, a gambler, who threatened the
life of Chief of Police Parrish to-day,
was piaced under S2OOO bonds to keep
the peace. MeGrath will likely linger
in prison a very long time, because it
is uoubtiul whether there is a man in
Portland willing to take any chances
on him. He has served one term in
the Washington Territory peniten
tiary for killing a man. He bad ex
pressed a determination to Jake tbe

Ct'HIOUS MINERALS.
Heme Queer Thing* Which Mine-
ralogists Dlicnrrred in I'tah.
Boston Trail script.
Included in the mineral resources of
I tab. apart from its precious metals
are deposits of alum, some recently
discovered veins of which are IS inches
thick and several hundred feet in
length, of dazzling whiteness and
great purity. Beds of nitre are also
found .sufficiently pure to readily fuse
them when thrown on hot coals." Ozo
kerite or natural mineral wax, a rarity
el-ewhere. is found here in iarge quan
tities. It is aii, acid and waterproof,
and can be used for imparting
these qualities to other substances.
As an insulator it is said
to be perfect, and would
doubtless be fount a superior insulat
ing material for electrical appliances.
It could also be adopted as the base
for a cheap yet desirable paving ma
terial and for indurating piles and
posts to prevent decay. A somewhat
similar discovery is giNonite, found, on
analy.si . to contain about >o per cent,
of carbon and asphalt in pure form.
Of the latter a vein lias been dis
covered three feet wide and over a
mile in length—a supply that-, if
worked. would be found almost inex
haustible. As is now well-known, the

magazine of salt, that can be readily

From this lake vast quantities of sul
phate of soda arc also secured, blown
on shore at certain temperatures by
the winds where hundreds of tons arc

tion of sal soda and carbonate of soda.

asked leave to introduce a bill re-estab
lishing the tcru/in (Tarrotvilsnement sys
tem of elections.
Deputy D'Ornano, Bonapartist, ex
claimed: "The only possible issue is
dissolution of the chamber!"
Cazzaux, member of the right, asked
leave to speak on a matter of urgency.
The president decided that the house
must hear Floquet Great confasion
ensued.
Floquet held that the establishment
of the iVarrendinement sys
tem would in no way assail universal
suffrage. The government did not
think measures ought to be taken
against liberty of the press, but were
bound to legislate against those seek
ing to overturn the republic. Existing
laws dealing with hostile combinations
were inadequate. The government
would propose frerh measures for the
repression of attempts against the
security of the state Universal suf
frage had become the tool of all sorts
of commercial combinations, through
syndicates operating through paid
bands of agitators.
Cassagnac reproached Floquet with
attacking universal suffrage, and said
it was now the right upon whom fell
the duty of defending suffrage against
the government. "Universal suf
frage commands; it must be obeyed.''
Dissolution had practically l>een made
the test word. The situation for the
ministry could be summed up in the
phrase. * ,
Hubbard demandedthat the govern
ment proceed against Boiilanger with
acts, not words.
Floquet replied that it was unneces
sary to form that idea—of a dictator
-hip.
Viter a prolonged aud animated de
bate Montant presented a motion that
the hou-e. confident in the firmness of
the gnvernment, passes to the order of
the day. The motion was accepted
by the government and adopted—3oo
to 200.
Boulanger did not appear in the
chamber during the debate.

PATIENTS AT PROVIDENCE.
The Number in the Hospital is Now
Only 107.
A visit was made to the Providence
Hospital yesterday. It was learned
that there are 107 patients in the hos
pital at the present time, which is less
than the usual number. At times the
number run* up to 120. The number
of typhoid fever cases is decreasing,
and there are only about 12 at the
present time. A short time since the
number was much larger. There are
a few mild cases of pneumonia, caased
by the recent cold snap.
Among the patients is Samuel
Trimble, aged 77 years, who is dying
of old age. Mr. Trimble is a pioneer
and has resided for many years in the
vicinity of Port Blakelev,jwhere he has
numerous friends. His death is ex
pected at any moment.
Nick Haley, who jumped out of the
window of "the Penobscot House at
Snohomish, on Saturday last, and
broke his left leg in two places, is im
proving, and in a few weeks will be
able to leave the hs-pital.
Mr. Haley laughs heartily when he
tell- the story of his mishap. His
home is at Marysville, where he
has a young wife, to whom
he has been married about a year. A
week before the accident happened the
Haley household was blessed by the
arrival of an heir. There was great
joy over ihe event, and it wa- with the
greatest regret that Mr. Haley left
his home to attend to some business
at Snohomi>h. He was in constant
fear that something would happen to
his child wbne he was away. Finally
he reached Snohomish and put up for
the night at the Penobscot House,
and soon fell asleep. Soon after Mr.
Haley began to dream. He was at
home in his own house, and his
precious babe lay sleeping in
its mother's arms. Suddenly
thi« happy domestic scene was
rudely disturbed by the entrance of
two burly, ruffianly-looking men.
They pulled the sleeping infant from
its mother's arms and hurriedly left
the room. Thh was too much for the
father to stand. "I was determined,"
said Mr. Haley, ' that they should not
get away with tuy child, aud I got up
and hurried after them. I walked out
of the second story window in pursuit
of the fleeing kidnappers, and did not
know that I hail been dreaming until
1 found myself Iving on the ground,
with tuy leg broken in two places. It
was a most unpleasant awakening
from a dream." Mr. Haley bears his
misfortune philosophically.
Mrs. lkniala. who was blown up at
Gihuan by the dvnamitc fiend,Scbaef
i'er, is doing well, and will soon be
able to leave the hospital. Mr. Bod
ala. whose legs wa< broken by the
-auie explosion, is better, but it will
be some time before he entirely re
covers.
A prominent Seattle nhy«eian
stated yesterday that the public health
is greatly improved. There
are no epidemics of any
sort. In the fall there was con
siderable typhoid fevtr and the
maladv wa- epidemic. Now there are
bat a few ease* and the disease i~ of a
milder type. There are a few mild
cases of varioloid, of cour-e there are
some cold* which are incident to the
cold weather. Among the children
there are three or four cases of measles
"On the whole the public health is so
good in Seattle." said the doctor, "that
toe physicians are complaining of dull
times."

Heavy Increase of Basine** in Ike

*t«-The Land OBw.
Very few have Any idea how the
business of the county auditor's office
has increased during the past few
years, and more especially during the
past two years. A clerk in the office
yesterday remarked in the presence of
a reporter that the business has been
increasing at the rate of 10 per cent,
per month during the oast year, and
this statement, incredible as it may
seem, was folly borne out when the
reporter made an examination of the
records.
The fee book, which had been
opened August 16,1888, with tiling So.
21,775. was hied yesterday, and a new
book was opened, with 27,517 as the
initial tiling number, showing that
5772 inrtrumenta bad been tiled for
record in the otftce in less than five
and a half months. During the month
of January 1400 instruments were
tiled.
From July 25, ISM. when the county
records were first opened, to March 4,
18*7, when Mr. Wood became auditor,
40 volumes erf deeds had been record
ed. Yesterday deeds were recorded
in book So 71.'showing an increase of
31 volumes in two years, three-fourths
as many records of deeds in the past
two years as m the preceding 34 years.
Two books of chattel mortgages, two
of miscellaneous records, two of liens,
one of judgments one of articles of in
corporation. and two of marriage
licenses, have been filed during the
time of Mr. Wood's term.
Oouuty Auditor Wood is setting his
house in" order ready for moving out
of ortiee on the 4th day of March.
Fully ?i*),000 in county warrants that
have" remained in the 'auditor's hands
through the failure of the persons in
whose favor they were drawn to call
for them are being listed and checked
off, so that when the turning over of
the county records, book.-* and papers
to the incoming auditor takes place
they can be receipted for without de
lay." The books of record are aiso be
in'g indexed up to date, and when Mr.
Wood's last day in oilice conies he ex
pects to greet his successor with ever}'
line of work brought up to time.
THE CODE COMMISSION.
Tlif* Attorney - General Think* It
Should Continue its Work.
In response to an inquiry made by
Territorial Auditor John Miller
Murphy, asking for information about
the duties of the code commission,
Attorney-tieneral J. It. Metcalfe ha"
prepared and forwarded his legal opin
ion. The attorney-general says the
code, according to section 3of the act
treating the commission, should be
fully prepared in written or printed
form lor submission to the next legis
lature.
If the session of the legislature
should have been held on the second
Monday in January. 18S0. the attor
ney-general holds that it would un
doubtedly have been necessary tor the
commission to have submitted as
much of it* work as had then been fin
ished to said legislative assembly on
the first day thereof.
In closing the attorney-general says:
"I, therefore, am led to*the conclusion
that the commission should continue
its work if unfinished, and that the
appropriation made for that purpose
is available for the payment of com
pensation of the commissioners and
clerk, and such other expenses as are
mentioned in the act; provided, that
in no case the compensation to each
commissioner does not exceed $1509;
the compensation to the clerk does not
exceed $1000; and the expenses for
stationery, etc., does not exceed the
sum of ISO."
CHINESE NEW TEAK'S.
The Occasion Celebrated In Seattle
With l>ne Eclat
Mayor Moran recently granted the
! Chinese residents of thi* city the priri
| lege of discharging tire-works within
j the city limits, between the hours of 5
| and 7 o'clock on the last of ths series
of days known as New Years, which
was yesterday. Accordingly all of the
| denizens of that portion of Seattle
j known as Chinatown, the center of
! which is the corner of Bouth Third
and Washington streets, availed them
j selves of the opportunity of welcoming
! the New Year in their own Mcuiltsr
style. After 5 o'clock last evening there
j burst forth a sound not unlike the rat
: tie of musketry. Chinatown, as seen
|by a Post-Intslmokncer mm, pre
'■ sented a weird scene. The
j streets were lined with laugb
' ing, howling celestial* setting ul?
I tire-crackers, whose explosion, with
! loud report, accompanied by bright
flashes, scattered torn and tattered
paper profusely about, ami soon the
streets looked like a stage after a
snow scene in some flashy melo
drama, only the paper was' not ex
actly white. The buildings were deco
rated in a fantastic manner with
lanterns, colored paper streamers,
and, in fact, every decorating device
known to the Chinese artisan. Dur
ing the two hour* of violent celebra
tion many Seattleitss visited the
j-ceneof action and wituessed the per
formance with evident satisfaction.
The New Year's celebration in this
city occupies but two aavs, while in
China it requires nearly \i days to do
the occasion full justice. The celebra
tion this year was a tritle more elab
orate than in former years, owing
possibly to the recent marriage of
Quong Sue, the youthful emperor of
China.

The able-bodied and heathy vag that

There were four of thi-> class in

They were all health v. ronost voting
fellows, who. if they "really waited to
do an honest day's work, could easily
Ket it, but who have adopted from
choice ti»e life of vagabonds and social
pariahs. They offered weak defenses,
but the evidence against them wa
conclusive, and they were promptly
