During Use session of the court • amall

ed States Marshal Hamilton. Yesterday at
4 o'clock there were 4'» prisoner* in this im
provised jail and in half an hour after there
were only 43. In the in«-rfm two prison
ers, Ban Lundy and William Brown, had
taken advantage of the confusion lncfdcnt
to the serving of supper to make their es
rape. though then* were two guard* in the
room. They entered the water closet
and a !«>ard was torn off. either
by themselves or a Confederate
outside. Through the opening thus made
they got into the alley nest to the Standard
theater aud from there it was au easy mat
ter to get into the street.
Ben. l.undy was arrested on the sloop

Mounting Creditors.
Considerable surprise was manifested in
commercial cirele* ye« eruay when It was
learued fhat (he grocery firm of Uobltc-oa
A Mitchell had sold out on Friday night to
L. A. Mt-I.aue, for fXHiO, This firm has
been iu the grocery business on South
Eighth street, uear the Urant street bridge,
since last Julv. For several mouths the
Mils were paid promptly, and the credit of
tile firm was good. For the past thirty
days, however, the firm ha* been buying
heavily, but on various excuses has put off
the paying of the bills until their liabilities
amounted to about #.«*> Then the sale
was made to !„ A. McLaue. Nothing has
been seen of either Koblnson or Mitchell
since Friday, and the presumption is that
they have "gone to the springs." Among
the victims are jfebwabacher A Co., Chil
berg A Co., Capt. J. A. Hatfield.. Coiemau
A Boyd, and others,
H.ere is considerable do=ibt a» to the
legality of the sale of Kobiuson A Mitchell s
stock to L A. McLane, as It Is alleged that
It was consummated tor the purpose of de
frauding the creditors. Therefore the
matter has been placed In the hands of the
Ihtard of Trade, who will thoroughly in
vestigate it.

Yesterday waa sentence daT fa tbe dia-
At 10 o'clock sheriff Cochrane,
with a *»ron* guard. escorted IS coa-ricfed
felon* Into tbe court room to hare Jalge
Bark? :«*. sentence upon them John
Wekb, tbe highwayman convicted of as
sault wttb intent to murder Policeman
sick Kanaa. led tbe pronation. Hia act
ing wa* not qa.te so consummate aa on tbe
day of tbe trial, yet he kept up tne pretense
of insanity aisd refused to comprehend tbe
lustration* of tbe guard to take a «e*t un
til t-e waa washed down into it. Then fol
lowed the ioog file of leas notorioaa crimi
nals, who were too weak in mind to simu
late insanity and whose crimen were of too
commonplace a nature to entitle tbcta to
any great degree of public attention,
sure runs roa k«6U>t.
Harry Diamond, the burglar, wa* tbe
first to receive sentence.
"I want my seatea-e postponed. ao I can
prove my innocence." said the prisoner.
"Yon hare had a fair trial and the ver
diet of the jury i« that yon are guilty of
burglary," responded hia honor, "tne sent
ence of tbe court, therefore, ia that you be
confined In the penitentiary at Y.alla
Waila for nine year* at hard labor."
HICHWAYWAS WELfa'B SKSTEJSCE.
When John Welch waa called upon to
stand up there was no answer. Tbe bold
highwayman sat mute and unresponsive ia
hi* chair, and looked straight ahead, aa if
oblivious to tbe mandate of the court,
irneriff Cochrane stepped orer to him and
lifted him to his feel, and motioned him
towards tbe bar The prisoner turned with
his back to the judge and commenced ar
guing with tbe sheriff about a rum of
money he claimed had been taken eway
from him when he was lodged in jaiL
■seeing that the prisoner would sot par at
tention, Judge Burke proceeded with' tbe
sentence
"John Welch." said he, "you hare been
eonricted of assault with intent to mur
der. You bare endeavored to make the
court and jury believe that you arc in
sane, but the jury did not think vou in
sane. and neither do I. I further believe
that you fully comprehend what! am now
saying to you. notwithstanding yosr
seeming abstraction. The sentence of the
court is that you be confined in the peni
tentiary at Walla Walla for the period of
U year*, at hard labor." A simple motion
of the sheriff was all that was required to
intimate to Welch that he could sit down
wben tbe sentence wa* concluded, which
be did with such alacrity aa to show that
the sentence of the court had exerted a
salutory affect upon his understanding.
HINUR OFMHDMB SFSTKK*'ED.
John McGratb, William Hawthorne and
Frank Conner were each given two year*
In tile penitentiary to r receiving stolen
fowds knowingly. A p!ea was set uj> by
(awtborre'e attorney that the stolen
property rewired by his client was only
valued at |lO, and be sboold therefore
have a light sentence, but the %court held
him equally guilty with his accomplices.
Richard Coulter, the dapper young man
who was convicted oi burglarizing Bode' -
tailoring establishment, insisted that he
wa« as innocent as a child, and pleaded
for mercy. The air of bravado he had worn
daring his trial was gone, and he trembled
likes leaf as he abjectly entreated the
court to be lenient with him. He was given
■even years In the i«enifentiary.
George Watson, a 16 rear-old boy, pleaded

ROBBED HIS FRIEND
The Old Story of Misplaced C onfi

J. E. Fitzgerald, evidently a laboring
man, arrived in town last night from Ta
coma with a woe begone look in his eyes,
* and immediately reported to the police
that be had been robbed of *IOO and a
watch. Fitzgerald stated that he arrived
in Seattle about two weeks ago, coining
from down the Sound. He had been here
but a short time when he fell in with a
man who gave the name of "Charlie Hor
, ingtou." Charlie an«l Fitzgerald were soon
excellent friends. With a few soothing
words Fitzgerald was Suduced to give his
friead his watch and his money {*100! to
j place in a safe.
The next day Charlie left for Tacoma, of
which fact Fitzgerald was not apprised
for several days. Whea he learned of his
, friends" departure he followed him toTa
coma. They met. aad Charlie said it was
all right, and tbe poor dupe believed such
jto be the fact, on Friday Horington dis
j appeared from Tacoma, leaving word for
his friend thsthe had gone back to Seattle,
f Yesterday FitzfieraJd came to this city, aad
after satisfying himself that Horiagton
| was not ht-re he reported his loss to the
police.

CsiadUMß Dart* asd Bam Spmk
of Its Provisions- From
!>nnac« Slas^poiaL
"Tbe Ef««tj of taking some action in
regard to tbe proper storag* of oil bad be
come so preseingly sppareat that aa ordi
nance, which makes provl&ion for tbe
proper disposal of combcstibiea, was in
troduced at tbe Council meeting Friday
sight. said Mr. D E. Dane. chairman of
the Council rcmmittee oa &re and water
yesterday, "The city sad to do either one
of two things—g:> into tbe storage business
itself rc others to do su. Tbe first
method seemed to me unwise, for two rea
son •: It would have been usurpation of
the business rights of private individuals,
and it would have added to the coat cf coal
oil. IValers in oil, petroleum, etc.. natur
ally desire to control their own busi
ness, and 1 am quite certain that
had aa attempt been made to
Metrics unduJ) the privileges of one or two
of them, notably the standard Ou Com
pany, by tbe parage of an ordinance re
quiring them to place their stores in the
hands of the city, they would have with
drawn their business from the citv. The
business arrangements of the Standard and
Eagle oil companies are now satisfactory
to the public, and all that is necessary now
is to require them to render their ware
h oases as trw from danger of fire as poesi
bie. The manager of the standard oil
warehouse has told rue that he u entirely
satisfied with the requirements of the pro
posed ordinance, and that be will comply
with them by constructing a safe bnildisg
further from the harbor.
"It will not be necessary for me to make
any extended explanation of the provis
ions of the ordinance, for a perusal of the
sections will, I think, convince everyone
of their reasonableness and wisdom."
I'IORKA*E OP I.N.' R.VSCB.
"The ordinance proposed by Councilman
Durie seems to me to be the best for all
parties that could have been suggested."'
said Councilman Bums.
"It was laid over for one week to ascer
tain what the sentiment of the public is.
I am satisfied it will be found unanimous
in its favor for the reason that its require
ments are reasonable and sensible, and
there are no unusual provisions attai hed
to It
"As ss sbstract insurance proposition, a
warehouse or barn for the storage of hay.
is mach more dangerous to surrouuding
property than aa oil warehouse. The basis
of insurarik-e rates for a brick structure of
the former kiad is 2JS per cent., and for a
wooden building 350 per cent. The rate
oa Drick hay warehouses is 3 per cent, and
for a wooden building 6 per cent
"Buildings adjacent to oit,store bouses
made of brick have l 4 per cent, added to
their basis,rate for a 10- foot exposure, and
I>er cent for a wooden warehouse; and the
additienal rate for a 10 foot exposure
from a hay bam of brick is per cent,
aud for a wooden bam is 1 2 per cent. Not
withstanding these rates! consider that
tbe danger from sn oil warehouse located
on the water front is much greater than
from a hay building, for the reason, well
understood here, that in case of fire the
burning oil running from the warehouse
would spread out over the harbor and
woald probably fire the whole water front.
Every one remembers the time when
Scbwabacher's oil warehouse, near the
Yesler wharf, burned four or five years
ago. The burning liquid ran down into
the water and quickly spread around
amongst the adjacent wharves. As it hap
pened, the tide was very low and the quan
tity of oil very small. or a
widespread and disastrous conflagration
must have ensued.
"Now, if oil warehouses are moved back
from the waterfront the calculations of in
surance adjusters oa the relative risks from
oil and hay warehouses will be without
this unconsidered element of danger, and
will be correct, Tbe rates of insurance
will be comparatively Jow. and the risk of
tire to adjoining buildings will be small. I
think Councilman Durie's ordinauce is a
wise one snd it should pass."

the individual, but tc» families of individuals as we see them in the rairiooa

coast line. The farmer, if he pleases, may sow his seed in winter snows, bat
it yields no return. He is hedged around by nature's law of season. The
average merchant. like tlie farmer, has his dull seasons as well as his Iwiay,
but the wide-awake business man is busy in all seasons. How to do this, hi
